Chapter 6 – The S-Class Summoning and Mina’s Battle
Sweepers have appeared in various locations.
When we received the sudden call, we adjusted our clothes and went outside.
“It’s good that you have come. We’re just about to look for you three.”
A young man with gray hair came walking up to us.
It was Felix, an S-class adventurer of the first rank.
“This is a serious matter.”
Next to him is an old man in martial arts attire.
This one is the fourth-ranked S-Class, Georg, I think.
Aside from the gloomy expression on Felix’s face, Georg’s expression was grim.
“It seems that monsters of similar types as of yesterday have started appearing in the surrounding countries.”
“We had received a word about that too.”
“We still haven’t heard any details about the situation, so we’re planning on going to check with the guild now,” Edith and Edna answered.
“Then let me brief you along the way since we’re heading there too. It seems that a number of sweepers that have appeared are in the hundreds and thousands worldwide.”
Felix told us a matter-of-factly.
“I heard that it was the major cities in various countries that are being attacked one after another. To this, each guild has already selected and dispatched capable adventurers and are currently fighting against them.”
That was quite a lot more than I had expected.
And the strength of each sweeper is extraordinary at that.
It’s an opponent that even S-class adventurers have trouble dealing with.
Because of this, I doubt that an adventurer of A-Class or lower would be capable of handling it.
“Thankfully, as Rushbaron is also called the Dragon Kingdom, there are many wild dragons living here that we could use for transport. This time, all S-class adventurers are required to ride them to their destinations,” Georg explained. If you are able to read this message, you are reading from an unauthorized aggregate site.

“As for the rest of the details, all S-class adventurers are requested to gather at the guild. Detailed instructions will be given there.”
At Felix’s lead, I headed for the headquarters together with Georg and the Miller sisters.
Then, after our briefing, we, the S-Class, were divided into several groups and rode dragons to various places.
Among the names of the cities that were being attacked was Regulus City.
I felt my blood boil with dread.
Meena and the others are in danger…
Side: Mina Arabelle
“Sigh……Sir Lian……please come back soon…….”
Taking a deep breath, Mina looked up at the sky.
She, right now, was thinking of the beautiful elf boy that she had vowed to be as her “destined partner,” which alone made the core of her heart tingle sweetly.
Even though it was only one day, for her, the time she spent apart from him was hard and lonely.
(I can’t wait to see him….)
But her sadness only grew.
“Come on, don’t fret like that. I’m sure the S-class awarding ceremony had already ended yesterday, so he’ll be back today or tomorrow. You just have to endure a little more.”
Mary comforted Mina as she came right by her side.
However, there was a hint of sadness on her face as well.
“Lian……I wonder if he’s still there.”
(Even Ingrid is missing him……)
“Hey, what’s wrong with Ingrid? Isn’t it unusual for her to act like that towards Lian?”
Mary grinned teasingly as she deliberately spoke out loud when she saw her other partner’s reaction.
“To have three such beautiful girls await for his return, Lian is really a lucky man.”
“……No, I’m not.”
Said Ingrid, shaking her head.
“Just now, you said, “I wonder if he’s still there”. Tell me the truth. You also want to see him soon, don’t you?’
“I did say that, but I didn’t mean I want to meet him soon,” and yet, Ingrid’s cheeks were flushing as she said those lines.
“I don’t like the way you talk about me like I’m a……damsel in love.”
She was all embarrassed now, which was very far from her usual cool-girl image.
(We’ve both changed, I think.)
Mina spoke in her mind.
(I’ve been living my life with faith in the Goddess of Love, Mary has been working hard with her sword, and Ingrid has always been calm and collected…)
All three of them have different attitudes toward Lian, but upon observing themselves, she had gotten to know one thing, that they all fell in love with him.
Mina couldn’t help but feel a faint sense of jealousy, but at the same time, she also felt a sense of solidarity and joy that her friends had also fallen in love with the same man.
“Hmm? What’s wrong, Mina?”
“Mm? Ah, it’s nothing. I just thought that all three of us want to meet Sir Lian as soon as possible. That’s all,” Mina said with a smile. This chapter translation is made possible by stabbing with a syringe translations. check up-to-date translations on my WordPress site.
It was such a happy, peaceful time ─
──until it was interrupted by a sudden explosion.
“R-run for your lives!”
“There’s a monster in town!”
Suddenly, screams from the townspeople were heard.
This prompted Mina and the others to hurriedly go outside the inn.
At the outside scenery, they gasped for breath.
“How on earth did it appear here?”
From along the main street, there was a cone-shaped demon about five meters tall, advancing slowly but menacingly.
However, despite being called a ‘demon’, its shiny metallic black body surface reminded her more of a machine than a living being.
“There was a pillar of light in the middle of the town, and he just appeared out of it.”
A woman in her twenties nearby explained to Mina.
The way she was dressed in her robe and carrying a wand, Mina wondered if she was a mage.
“So it’s a type of teleportation spell? But the town where the guild is located is supposed to be warded. I can’t believe that a demon would be able to teleport here…….”
“The guild was confused as well. Anyway, I have received a call from the adventurer’s guild. The guild asks every adventurer in town to take them down.”
A middle-aged man lined up next to the mage.
This one was a warrior with a large ax.
“I’m B class, and he’s C class. What about you?”
The female mage asked.
“All three of us are A-Class.”
It was Mary who answered.
“I think it’s better for us to take the lead. You guys can support us from behind,” Ingrid instructed the two, still looking at the monster as if analyzing it.
“Be careful, everyone. I have a feeling this isn’t just some random thing.”
Mina also noticed it and couldn’t help but remind everyone.
Yes. They had felt that it was no ordinary demon.
The vibe it gave, even though its appearance is different……they could tell that this enemy is as strong as the one they have fought before.
Yes, it was similar to what they felt when they were battling the magic armament Fenrir.
(As when things couldn’t get any worse, Lian is not around at the moment.)
“Still, we have no choice but to face it.”
Mina murmured as if telling to herself.
And so, their battle began.
A dangerous battle where for the first time in a long time, Lian is not by their side.
