Chapter 21: His Strength Was At Least D-class!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
When Flanders stared at Suo, he could not help but tremble.
His intuition from many battles told him that this scarecrow was very dangerous!
[Fear points: +80.]
At this moment, even Suo realized it.
He actually felt a sense of fear in his heart.
Sensing this emotion, Suo was unable to regain his usual confidence. Not only that, it also caused him to lose control of himself.
He was out of control.
“You’re just a strange creature. Don’t play any f*cking tricks here!”
Sometimes, fear could turn into rage, and rage could also turn into fear in an instant.
Overcome by fear, Suo used his strongest move without holding back.
A head-sized spell attack was conjured and launched at Flanders.
An instant cast!
There was a well-known fact in the mystical realm.
All magical spells could only be cast by chanting their spell.
Only when a spell had been practiced to a high level of familiarity could it be cast without chanting.
An instant cast would sacrifice 30% of the spell’s power.
However, it could often produce an unexpected effect.
At this moment, using an instant cast was a sign that he was not holding back.
He tried to end the battle in the fastest and most direct way.
An instant cast was naturally the best choice at the moment.
Even with the 30% reduction in power, it was still enough to kill a simple E-class creature!
If he was not careless earlier, he would not have allowed such a small sneak attack to succeed.
At this moment, Suo had not realized it yet.
The fact that he had this thought showed that he was still in a state of carelessness.
Seeing that the fireball had successfully hit Flanders and caused a huge explosion, Suo’s lips finally formed a smile.
However, just as his tensed nerves relaxed for a moment, a stream of blood shot out from his right and onto his face.
Suo was shocked. He quickly looked to his side.
His teammate was now covered in blood, looking at him in disbelief.
“Suo…” his teammate uttered, right before his eyes rolled to the back of his head and fell to the ground.
The air seemed to be filled with the smell of roasted meat.
And this smell was coming from his teammate.
He did not need to look closely to know that all the wounds on his teammate’s body smelled like they were burnt.
They were all burn wounds.
At this moment, Suo’s mind was in chaos.
In his rage earlier, Suo had instantly released fire magic, which ended up killing his teammate.
Although he clearly saw the fireball hit the scarecrow, the truth was right in front of his eyes.
It was indeed his teammate who died.
His rage turned into fear at this moment.
“No, this is impossible. Impossible!” he shouted in panic. His face flushed red as blue veins bulged on his neck.
The thick smoke from where the scarecrow was standing just now gradually dispersed.
Suo stared at the figure that was gradually becoming clearer in the smoke.
The fear on his face was no longer concealed.
At this moment, Flanders was actually standing amidst the smoke, completely unscathed as if he had not moved at all.
[Fear points: +300.]
[Fear points: +50.]
[Fear points: +90.]
[Fear points: +10.]
Suo’s emotions were written on his face.
His emotions managed to infect the rest of the team as well.
However, Flanders looked at the man with the buzz cut who was standing in the distance with keen interest.
That man with the buzz cut only provided him 10 fear points.
Flanders knew that members of the Mage Association provided far more fear points than the average person.
In other words, this guy’s 10 fear points would only be less than one fear point if he was a normal person.
A value close to insignificance.
“You seem to be different from them.”
Flanders looked at the buzz-cut man with his narrowed eyes and smiled.
The buzz-cut man did not speak, but his expression was extremely grave.
They had only just exchanged blows, and one member was already dead while another gravely injured.
This scarecrow was unharmed, and he completely had the upper hand.
No, he did not just have the upper hand.
He had complete control of the entire situation.
Up until now, the buzz-cut man could not figure out how the scarecrow deflected the attacks to his team members.
If they failed to figure this out as soon as possible, they would be completely subdued.
They could only defend themselves. They did not dare to attack!
“Retreat!” Without hesitating for too long, the buzz-cut man immediately gave the order.
The team members were stunned but they did not refute.
On the other hand, Suo shouted hysterically, “This guy killed Nago! I want to avenge Nago!”
After saying that, he conjured up another fireball in front of his chest.
This time, he completed the chant.
Watching this scene, the buzz-cut man was shocked.
This kid, Suo, had completely lost his ability to think!
If this continued, he would definitely cause the deaths of all his teammates!
Blue veins appeared on the buzz-cut man’s forehead as he shouted angrily, “I said retreat!”
This angry shout was not an ordinary shout, but one that contained magic.
It could cause damage to people and it could also wake people up instantly.
This was one of the reasons why he was able to become the leader of this mission.
He was an all-rounder!
With this roar, Suo instantly woke up and the fireball in front of his chest dissipated.
A drop of cold sweat dripped down from Suo’s forehead.
If he had released this fireball just now, that scarecrow might have used the same trick again and deflected the damage to his teammates.
And this time, their leader was the one who would most likely die!
Thinking of what might have happened, Suo felt a lingering fear in his heart.
[Fear points: +50.]
“What are you still standing there for? Hurry up and retreat!”
Another angry shout was heard, once again clearing the minds of the other members.
Suo finally reacted and turned around, wanting to escape.
The buzz-cut man subconsciously looked at Flanders’s position.
The two angry shouts were not only cast on his teammates.
They were also cast on the scarecrow.
However, with his proficiency in this spell, it was not difficult for him to cast the spell on different people at the same time while causing different effects.
He realized that none of his teammates showed any signs of being injured by him.
In other words, this move might be effective on the scarecrow!
However, just as he was trying to find the scarecrow’s figure and check if he was injured, he discovered that the scarecrow was nowhere to be seen.
The scarecrow had actually disappeared!
This time, the buzz-cat man finally felt a trace of panic in his heart.
From the corner of his eyes, he saw Suo’s retreating figure. It was frozen on the spot.
With a dark expression, the buzz-cut man turned around, only to see the scarecrow standing behind Suo, gently pinching his neck.
The scarecrow had a sinister smile.
At this moment, the buzz-cut man finally understood.
This scarecrow’s strength was definitely not just E-class!
He was at least a D-class!
