hat I was cornered in the middle of a defensive battle? Too bad you’ve got a potty head, you dumb bastards.”

“W-why, I-i can’t move my body…!”

“Oh, absolutely you can’t move for 7 seconds and that’s enough for me.”

Nina bends forward to get up, supporting herself with her legs, which are trembling from the high fever.

“─ ─ Skill ‘Four Shadowed Bullets’.

A skill that multiplies one’s own speed by four and launches four attacks; four black straight lines ran across the room, and at the same time four dull sounds overlapped, and the bodies of the men in the bandit group fell to the floor without even taking a passive stance.
All of them, including Yzma, were blown unconscious after being struck clean through the lower jaw.

“…It’s over, isn’t it?”

With her hands on the wall, Nina let out a deep sigh.
She hadn’t expected to have to go head-to-head with the bandit boss.
She wanted to rest, but anyway, she had to inform Gustav and the others about the hostage release as soon as possible now, and Nina walked out in a daze.

“Skill [Brighting]”.

The kunai in her hand is filled with a strong light.
Nina launches it high into the sky.
Signal.
Now all that’s left is for Gustav and the Spera-san, who saw this to ride in from the front and destroy the bandits.

…I was about to rest a little and put my back against the wall of a dwelling near the point where Nina raised the signal when…

“─ ─ Hmm? Don’t tell me you’re one of the heroes?”

“?”

Nina suddenly looked up in the direction of the voice.
There was a shadowy man with black wings, quietly flapping his wings as if he was floating.

“Hi, I’m one of the [Three Heavenly Demons] of the Demon King’s Army, Faunus.”

“.Faun..us..?”

“Huh? Didn’t the heroes tell you? I think he’s the one who defeated our Barzeph.”

“—”

Barzeph, Nina had an idea of that name in her mind.
Gustav had mentioned it once in a conversation.
He said that there were three beings in Demon Lord’s army that he had to pay special attention to.
Nina regains her breath and activates a skill that increases her own speed.

“Heh, you’re willing to do it even though you’re so dizzy? But it’s useless, you know?”

The faun seems to have disappeared from sight in an instant.

“??”

“Too late, Shadow Bats.”

Faunus, who had been circling behind her before she knew it, activates his skill, and countless bats made of black shadows are slammed into Nina’s body.

“Gah!”

Nina, who was hit by a large flurry of bats, rolled heavily on the ground.
She tries to put strength into her legs, but cannot.
Her back was in extreme pain and she could no longer grip her kunai.

“If you were in perfect condition, it might have been a bit more of a good fight.
My level is 36, yours is probably around 30, right? That’s great, you worked hard to raise your level.”

“Shit…”

“But alas, it’s time to say goodbye.
You can pray to the god you believe in, so that you can at least go to heaven.”

A long black sword appeared in the raised faun’s hand.
The skill used by the faun, the ‘Shadow Sword’, swung down towards Nina’s neck.
However, Nina neither prayed nor closed her eyes.
The reason for this is… very simple.

“…you’re late.”

Immediately after Nina murmurs this, Zbabba-ba-ba! and as many as a thousand spears extend vigorously from the ground, bouncing back at the Shadow Sword.

“Ohhh?”

In front of the startled faun, and probably flying from the roof of some dwelling, Baam! and with a loud bang, a man landed in front of Nina.

“─ ─ Sorry, Nina.
I was kicking those small fry bandits around and got a bit late.”

“…Yeah.
I’ll leave the rest to you, Gustav.”

“Yeah, sorry, just get some sleep.
I’ll be done soon.”

Gustav’s back, with his big spear in front of him, reassured Nina much more than if she had prayed to God.
