Chapter of the week: 2/2
After Karen and I spent our time enjoying and walking the festival, we headed to Ouka’s shrine. The festival was quite small as expected in regard to its scale, though it was still fun and enjoyable. That’s why I want to finish my work with Ouka as fast as I could so I can return to the festival.
“I have been waiting for you, Yato-sama.”
“I shall depend on your power today.”
“Please treat me well.”
We briefly greeted each other, and I noticed that Ouka’s expression was a little stiff than usual. It looked like she was still worried about how the sealing would go. Shortly after, I saw the little foxes running towards Karen all at once.
“Ah, it’s our Lord and Savior Karen-sama!”
“Hey, hey. Teach us how to that again!”
“I want to do it again!”
Apparently, they liked what Karen taught them the last time. I didn’t see that coming, honestly. Karen smiled at the excited little foxes but before she answered them, she realized that I was gazing at her and then she proceeded to speak with an apologetic face.
“Sorry, I can’t do it today.”
When she refused, the little foxes started throwing tantrums while still insisting on her to teach them and to which Karen seemed troubled until Ouka came to save her.
“Everyone, you shouldn’t trouble our human guests.”
With that one minor rebuke, all the little foxes turned docile. I don’t understand how they liked being taught those weird moves and being trained into soldiers. A bitter smile reached my face as I looked at them obediently listening to Ouka.
“Well then, shall we go?”
After confirming with Ouka’s statement, I followed her to the sealing place. I waved my hand to Karen and the little foxes without looking back and kept walking. Our destination is the place where the evil apparition, Souki, is sealed. The place where our enemy is waiting for us.
In a fine weather night when the moon was shining brightly, Ouka and I stood before a giant rock located inside the sealing space which was concealed deep inside the serene and dark mountain.
“Let’s do it as planned, please.”
When Ouka approached the sealing rock, I moved to the right side. Our surroundings were quiet and only the faint noises of insects could be heard. It was like the calm before the storm. Ouka took a deep breath then raised both of her hands up resulting in a pentagon-shaped magic formation to appear under the rock.
Apparently, this the kind of magic used on Earth. Since this was the first time that I’ve seen this type of magic being used, I became interested and kept on observing her use it for a short while. According to what she said, this is not really magic but a type of exorcism spell. I could notice a talisman floating near the formation she made. That’s the type of equipment an exorcist would use. The rock is most likely linked with the magic formation since it started moving simultaneously with it.
“Oh, that was close.”
I unintentionally fell in my thoughts there, I need to get in my position already. I quickly moved as planned to the designated place that is outside the barrier. Since we were within the mountain, there wasn’t any street and due to which I had to walk through mountains to reach outside of the barrier. According to Ouka, Souki can’t call his ogres from inside the barrier. That is why, if he were to call them, they will come from the outside. My mission in the plan is to stop those ogres from entering the barrier and reaching Ouka.
“Well then, let’s see where they can come out…”
Once I left the inside of the barrier, I could no longer hear the howls and earthquake of the last time. This means that I can’t tell when the ogres will come up. I need to put up my guard. I activated my【Space – Time Magic (Extra Large)】and placed the entire area under my observation until I sensed an unknown presence coming from the end of the scope. So they really came. I immediately teleported to the place where I sensed that presence.
“GIGI… GIGIG… GIGI.”
When I teleported to the location, I found a small ogre with crimson eyes shining in the dark. Its skin was red and it had wrapped the skin of tiger on its hips. It looked exactly like the ogres mentioned in folklores and kind of different from the ones that are supposed to be in different worlds. So these are the ogres of Earth, huh. It let out a voice similar to the noise that a broken machine would do and didn’t look alive. I can somehow tell that it doesn’t have a conscience. As I kept gazing at the small ogre for a while, it finally noticed me and came rushing in my direction.
It let out a strange voice and rushed with its mouth bare open spilling drool. I kept standing in my place and spoke in a low tone.
At the very instant, a blade of wind came out of nowhere and beheaded the small ogre. It then decreased its running speed gradually until it fell down and eventually turned into light particles. It looks like it disappears the same way other monsters do. So this is the type of ogres Souki controls, huh. They’re unexpectedly weak. I was expecting something stronger to appear. Well, I guess more types of them will soon come out. I thought to myself as I continued to slay the ogres that appeared for a while.
I didn’t realize that there weren’t only a few types of ogres until I slain them in front of my eyes. There were some who were well armed, some who were running too fast and even some with a strong built. Though, all of them were weak to a disappointing level.
The second wave of ogres had too many of them. Apparently, the first wave’s purpose was to weigh the situation since the moment I beheaded the last one of them, I sensed a tremendous amount of presence around the barrier. At the same time, a huge number of different ogres appeared before me and tried to assault me. It looks like they’re trying to make their way by attacking in the large numbers. Despite that…
“It’s still no use.”
There was no way they could break through my defense with that much of their strength. I lifted a single hand while observing the assaulting ogres. I was startled to see them rushing with that amount, but thinking about it further, it’s no use for ants to increase their number. I already grasped their total number using my Space Magic and was preparing to launch my counter attack.
As I chanted the shoot spell, an arrow made of light was released to the sky from the place I was standing with my arm raised. It then gradually decreased in speed until it eventually stopped in its place to look like some fireworks launched in the middle of the night. Shortly after, it suddenly burst and split into tens of other arrows, then hundreds before it reached thousands of shining arrows, exactly how fireworks set off. The targets were already defined, running away was no longer possible for them.
The arrows fell down like pouring rain and pierced the ogres. Head, heart, belly; with no means to escape, all of them got penetrated by the light arrows in different parts and turned into light particles. I was thinking of using fire magic to create some real fireworks, but if I do that here, it will surely cause a fire, so instead, I went with light. It is quite regrettable that I couldn’t use fire, though. All the ogres around the barrier should have encountered the same excruciating fate. I kept leisurely gazing at the light arrows raining on the ogres until they stopped falling. All the ogres around were in the process of turning into light particles.
This should do the job.
I took a breath knowing that I took care of the enemies on my side.
“If you’re trying to stop me then you’d better bring someone as strong as the【Goddess of Destruction】.”
If they couldn’t do that much, it would be meaningless to even slow me down. Well then, I will go back to Ouka now. To be honest, from the day I accepted Ouka’s request, I had a premonition that Karen’s baseless prediction of something occurring would come true. I don’t think something like that will happen, I hope so, that’s why I’m going back to check on Ouka just in case. I summoned a guard to defend the barrier while I’m off.
Immediately after my call, Rouga answered with an energetic voice as if she were waiting for me to call her.
“I’m going to see how Ouka is doing, so I will leave this place to you.”
She already went on many harsh trainings while playing with me every once in a while. I’m sure she can bite off all those ogres without much troubles. Her speed is also way over the normal speed of a monster, so she could cover the defense of the entire barrier. Even her stats are nowhere to be compared with her old self.

She leveled up quite so much, thanks to her training, or more like playing, with me. What took me aback the most was the fact that she learned wind magic. She found herself able to use it all of a sudden in the middle of a game we were playing. Man, kids do grow fast, huh. As I was contemplating the fast growth of Rouga, a small ogre showed up. It probably came to measure Rouga’s power. Anyway, it came in a good timing.
“Rouga, do it.”
(ED: lol whoopsie, i had to do that. xD)
With a bark, she approached the ogre while moving left and right and then jumped on it. Once she pinned down his body, she chewed off its throat. Her mouth got dyed with the dark red color of blood while the raw sound of chewing resounded in the serene night.
The little ogre soon turned into light particles and vanished. Rouga howled as if to triumph her victory. I just can’t get used to her gruesome way of fighting. She is really a fox, after all. I almost forgot about it since she always acts like a dog. She kept on chewing the throat of the ogre as if she were starving for blood.
A few moments later, she spat it off for not tasting very good. Welp, of course, it would be disgusting. A real wolf always eats this kind of meat to survive in the wild, but not Rouga who’s treated like a pet dog. The taste of the raw meat of an ogre never had a chance to satisfy her taste.
“Well, anyway, do your best.”
There is no need for me to stay here. I headed to the sealing space to check on Ouka. I hope everything ends without any troubles. Wait…
“Maybe I shouldn’t have said that.”
Hoping that nothing would happen will just have the opposite effect. Or that’s what I learned recently from going through many troubles. How can I describe this…
“I am having a bad feeling about it…”
Let’s hurry up.
I hurried to the sealing space, leaving Rouga to protect the barrier in my place. I really hope nothing happens, please.
The true feelings of Youkai.
In the dressing room (the small Ogres.)
“Ah, my face hurts.”
“It’s my neck that’s hurting me here.”
“Did that dog really need to bite me, seriously.”
“My eye got pierced and I can’t see.”
“I can’t stand anymore.”
“The worst is that we had to make that voice.”
“Seriously, what the h*ck is GIGI!? Nonsense.”
“It can’t be helped, man. After all, we’re…”
“We’re playing the role of small fries.”
“Alright, who wants to go drink tonight?”
“Oh! Nice idea!”
“Alright then, let’s go, everyone.”
“They look all lively.” ← Yato
“Their face is a mess though.” ← Rouga
