This spectacle was also seen by Margo and Juno. How embarrassing. I described the terrifying monster I had encountered with body gestures and drawing on the ground to them.
Then after stroking his bald head, Margo gestured for us to beat that monster.
For real? I’m definitely against it, you know?
I thought to myself but then Margo gestured for me, Junho and him to fight together and told Sarasa to stay here instead.
“Just how are we supposed to stand a chance against that thing???”
Unable to hide my shock, I said that in Japanese. Margo then pointed to my ‘paruna detoxification potion’. I wondered if things could go well if we had this?
And so, I was forced to participate in a mission to subjugate the cockatrice. Margo and Juno coated their weapon with gebal poison. Margo had a two-handed axe while Juno had a longsword.
Although I was still feeling anxious about this, there was nothing I could do. I just had to rely on paruna detoxification potion to deal with the enemy’s abnormal status attack.
After discussing our strategy with the combination of magic board, drawing and gestures, we set out to subjugate the cockatrice.
The cockatrice was still standing there in plain sight.
I slowly crouched down while watching from the corner of my eyes as both Margo and Juno continued to move cautiously to flank the cockatrice from both sides.
After placing the ankle snare trap out of the range of my bow, I got closer to cockatrice, enough so I could hit it with my bow. Then, I started firing poisoned arrows at the cockatrice.
After being hit by the poisoned arrow, the cockatrice started charging at us while letting out its war cry. The poison seemed to be showing an effect to some extent. So scary.
I backed away while still firing my bow.
BASH BASH BASH
The cockatrice stepped on the ankle snare and the metal trap immediately pinched its leg.
The cockatrice let out a terrifying cry and then, Margo and Juno ambushed the cockatrice from both sides. Margo swung his two-handed axe down at the snake tail while Juno slashed the cockatrice’s leg with his longsword.
The cockatrice started to writhe upon being attacked by a weapon coated by gebal poison. Seeing this, I rushed in with my fire sword ready. I used ‘bash’ on the cockatrice’s leg.
The staggering cockatrice then unleashed its petrification attack and poison breath with all of its might, hitting me and Juno. The skin on my body started to froth and I drank the paruna detoxification potion in a haste. The frothing on my skin then stopped. Juno also seemed to be fine. It must be due to the paruna detoxification potion.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Petrification Resistance level 1. 』
My adrenaline must be overflowing because for some reason, I didn’t feel terrified.
Meanwhile, Margo, who had escaped from the poison breath and petrification attack, successfully cut the snake tail off. Losing its balance, the cockatrice fell on its body on the spot.
Seeing this opportunity, I used ‘bash’ on the cockatrice’s neck from the left side while Juno also used ‘bash’ from the right side.
The cockatrice’s neck fell.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda went from level 7 to level 9.
Dexterity: 17→ 20
Somehow, we managed to win.
T/N: The most OP thing here must be the poison. It’s a (medium) level poison after all! (￣□￣;)
