“We’ll hunt wolves too.
We’ll draw them away from the tigerwolf to make it easier for you.”

“Sora and the others, go look after the merchants too.
I’m leaving that to you.”

Siphon tells us to go guard the merchants.

Rurika hesitates at first, but follows the commands of the leader.

Magic is activated and fired on the wolves.
They’re focusing on wind and water magic because they’re purposely choosing magic that makes as little noise as possible.

In the meantime, the wagons are circled like when we camp, and the horses are given calming herbs to prevent them from getting too excited and rampaging.

Rurika tells me to get on the canopy, and I do so.

The magic attack throws the wolves into disarray, and the tigerwolf catches up to them and opens its mouth widely to bite at them.
Its sharp fangs easily pierce one of the wolves, and blood sprays.

I hear what sounds like the wolf shrieking, and the rest abandon it, running away from the left and right of the tigerwolf.

The C ranked adventurers quickly deal with this, blocking the wolves like they read the future.
When did they even get so close?

The tigerwolf starts groaning as it sees this, probably thinking they’re there to steal its prey.

But before it can jump at the adventurers, magic is fired at it.
The timing is off, and although two or three spells are fired at it, it easily dodges them.
Apparently it’s magic that prioritizes activation speed rather than power, to keep enemies in check.

Meanwhile, Siphon gets close and attacks the tigerwolf.

The tigerwolf lightly dodges this attack, and jumps at Siphon, who got within its reach.
An adventurer holding a shield switches places with Siphon and blocks the sharp claws.

Apparently he specializes in using a shield, because he’s holding it with both hands and he doesn’t have a weapon.
No, that’s not it, it feels like he equipped just a shield specifically to be able to withstand the attacks of the tigerwolf.
But he strikes with the shield from time to time, and doesn’t forget to draw its attention.

The battle with the tigerwolf has reached a stalemate.

In the meantime, the rest of the adventurers are hunting the wolves.
C ranked adventurers have no trouble disposing of them, and they’re all being killed one after the other.

But wolves that the D rank party were fighting manage to slip through and come this way.
Are they trying to escape from the tigerwolf? Trying to use us to relieve the stress from being chased away? Did they instinctively sniff out non-combatants? I don’t know, but they’re headed right for us.

Wolves run and jump this way, and Rurika kills one with one slash after dodging them.

The remaining two are dealt with by the other D ranked party and their unrefined but still well-matched combination.
They’re not unharmed, but didn’t suffer any serious injuries either.

I was trying to come down from the canopy when the wolves were coming, but I was stopped, so I’ve been cautiously looking around.
As far as my eyes can see and my Presence Detection can feel, there aren’t any more enemies.

All that’s left is the tigerwolf, and as neither side can finish off the other, the battle ends with the tigerwolf’s retreat.
