Eventually it repels one of Leila’s attacks, and she loses her balance.

I swing my sword to stop it from following that up with another attack, but I don’t make a dent, and it throws me back.

Lloyd holds up its sword in front of Leila, and she holds up her own from a bad position to try to block it.

I close the distance again after being thrown back, and as I step near Lloyd, I move to slash it.
It’s not a feint either, it’s just a direct slash.

Lloyd reacts to it by turning my way and holding up its sword to swat down something boring.

If I keep going like this, it’s going to split me in two.

But that’s when I shoot the Fire Arrow spell I prepared before.

I aim right at its face from a close range, but Lloyd skillfully uses its sword to block.

But I quickly transition into a Sword Slash.

I hit its arm directly, but it feels like I hit hard metal.

As for the damage… There’s some blood, but that’s it.

But it looks like it didn’t like being hurt, as the previously completely unconcerned Lloyd suddenly comes at me with anger.

A sharp attack is coming down at me, and I meet it with an upper swing.

It’s the heaviest attack so far.

At this rate it’s going to crush me.
I grit my teeth and do my best to hold on.

But suddenly, the pressure on my arms is gone.

I look up and see Lloyd looks surprised, and its eyes are pointing down.

I follow its gaze, and see a mithril sword growing out of its abdomen.
No, it’s Leila’s sword.

She took advantage of Lloyd becoming emotional to stab it.

“Damn… You…”

Lloyd swings with no technique behind it, only raw power.

The flat of the sword doesn’t care about air resistance as it strikes Leila.
If it was the blade, it would be a fatal attack for sure.

Leila let go of the sword and jumped back at the last second, which somewhat softened the blow, but Lloyd’s strength is far beyond normal.
Leila hits the ground and rolls, and when she stops, it seems she is having trouble focusing her eyes.

I think Lloyd is angry about that attack not killing her, as it goes after her to deliver the killing blow.
I throw knives and slash at it to try to stop it, but it deals with every attack like it’s swatting down a fly.
It doesn’t stop, and blows me back with a light touch.

It’s not even thinking about me anymore.
It’s only looking at Leila.

I think she knows it too, as she tries to get up, but her body is sluggish and doesn’t move the way she wants it to.

Lloyd then walks slowly towards Leila, to make her feel despair.
He wants to instill fear into the one it feels humiliated her.

I run out of throwing knives, and run to slash at it.
If there’s nothing I can do to stop it, I’ll just go around it.
But will I make it in time?

Both Lloyd and I get closer and closer to Leila, but Lloyd gets to her first.

But it just stands there, looking at her with a twisted expression, as it raises its sword slowly to try to fan the fear inside her.
I think it wants to hurt her, rather than finish it in one blow, because it swings down the flat of the sword directly in front of her.

I ignore it and jump forward, grabbing Leila and jumping before the sword hits.

But I don’t manage to evade it completely, and the tip hits my back.
The pain it causes feels like my whole body is being torn apart, but I run.
Still, I was lucky, because being hit with the flat of the sword means I didn’t get slashed.

In a way, all it did was scratch me, and it still hurt that much.

Leila is writhing in my arms, and boiling with anger towards Lloyd.

Toying with her like that.
That humiliating attitude.

At the same time, I feel anger towards myself.
I was too naive.
I didn’t bring out my full power towards something so strong.

I take my gun out of the Item Box.
