Chapter 176 – Evil God・Instant Kill・〇〇〇 Sword

Translator: Maikisima

Proofreader: Hieu

Count Rajta slashed at them with his sword.

It looked like something was leading the bodies of Goldoh and Quinton in a way that allowed them to avoid the slash, that earlier managed to nearly defeat them in one hit.

“How is it possible!?”

Count Rajta  eyes widened in surprise.

However, he was not the only one who was shocked.

“Did my body just move automatically… no wait, did it predict the attack?!?”

“No, magic is rolling in my body. Is this the power of [Black Rose]?”

Although they were somewhat confused, they still held their sword.

“Is the legend of [Black Rose] true?”

“Are we the selected people? I don’t know why, but if we have such power – we can win!”

The two men attacked Count Rajta  from both sides.

“Don’t be smug!! Even if weaklings like you get the power of [Black Rose], you can’t do anything!”

Their attack was rebounded by Count Rajta ’s sword.

“——Ku!”

“He is really strong!”

The pressure coming from the count’s sharp sword made their face wrinkle.

Count Rajta ’s strength was far beyond what a local lord could have. He is easily stronger than many famous magic-swordsman both in Orian and aboard. It was strange that such a strong fighter was not well-known, even if magic-sword fighting is not popular in this country.

In their normal state, they would be no match for Count Rajta .

“Quinton, stall Count Rajta  for a while…”

“Got it, Goldoh.”

The two, as slaves of Tulpicano, had experienced countless battles together, so they could understand each other without words.

Even with the power of [Black Rose], one couldn’t win against the count on his own.

But if there were two of them…

“Uooooooo!”

Squealing, Quinton raised his proud sword and sprinted forward.

“Never look down on me! This simple swordsmanship of mine shall cut you!”

Count Rajta had been well prepared for the coming battle.

He saw through Quinton’s movements. While he was about to chop him down…

Quinton’s speed increased enormously in an instant.

“What?”

The black magic spurted from Quinton’s feet.

“Uooooooo!!”

“Nuuuuuu!”

Then the battle where both sides fought with their swords began.

They fought against each other with all their strength.

In the battle with Count Rajta , Quinton, who was twined by the black magic, gained the upper hand gradually.

“How can this be possible? Does the [Black Rose] have such a great power?”

The power of the strikes were so tremendous that the floor under Count Rajta ’s feet began to crack, followed by entire room in an instant.

Count Rajta  had to dodge Quinton’s sword edge, trying to push aside his sword.

However, Quinton had stalled for enough time.

[EVIL GOD・INSTANT KILL]

Goldoh’s golden magic began to sweep the battleground.

Goldoh used his fatal skill,[EVIL GOD・INSTANT KILL・GOLDEN DRAGON SWORD], which Quinton had seen several times. It should have looked like a golden dragon.

“This is the…”

The golden magic was gradually eroded by the black magic and formed a beautiful rose shape.

It was then activated.

“EVIL GOD・INSTANT KILL・BLACK ROSE SWORD!!”

The magic of the Black Rose was approaching Count Rajta .

“How could it be possible?”

Count Rajta was engulfed by the magic and evaporated completely.

Beautiful petals danced in the air.

The blow was so violent that it attacked through the city wall. Then the silver light from high above the night sky penetrated the hole.

The petals like snowflakes fluttered down and dyed the ground black.

They looked down and only found all soldiers of the [Vow of Black Rose] looking up at Goldoh.

“Goldoh, you did it.”

Quinton patted Goldoh on his shoulder.

“Did these guys win, too?”

“Ha-ha. Hurry up and respond to them.”

“Respond to them?”

All soldiers of the [Vow of Black Rose] looked up at the castle, with their right hands raised high.

The right hands – the mark, shaped like a black rose petal, was carved on them.

“These guys…”

“For some indiscernible reason, we seemed to be selected by the [Black Rose]. Nah, Goldoh, it’s too early to be disillusioned with the mortal world.” 

「Quinton⋯」

“I don’t know neither what we can do nor how far we can go. But if our strength is necessary for this country ── I want to fight for my country.”

“Quinton, then you lead…”

“I’m not cut out for a leader.”

Quinton lightly patted Goldoh on his back.

“Go ahead. Everyone is waiting for you.”

Goldoh glanced around all soldiers of the [Vow of Black Rose] who raised their right hands high.

Goldoh had once wanted to abandon them.

That guilt now made Goldoh’s expression twisted.

But they were looking for a flag, a flag which could lead them to fight together for triumph.

Goldoh stared at the black rose petal carved on his right hand.

“Then take action…” 

What’s more, Goldoh himself also wanted to challenge again.

“If I can do it…”

Goldoh took a step forward and raised his right hand.

“For our victory – !! Take an oath of loyalty to [Black Rose]!!”

The black rose danced silently in a formidable hurrah.

Squealing, Quinton raised his proud sword and sprinted forward.

“Never look down upon me! Will this simply swordsmanship make a difference?”

Is it ” Will this simple swordsmanship make any difference?”
or maybe,
“Will just simply swordsmanship make any difference?”
or maybe i am just wrong.

    Probably more along the lines of, “Do you think your shabby swordsmanship will make a difference?”.
