Holding her sword in a hand, Lina looked at the daemon in front of her with tears in her eyes.
Well, the lower part of the daemon. The entire upper part had been blown apart.
Quickly, Lina’s body lost strength and collapsed on the ground.
Blood trickled down her lips, and several veins in her body burst out.
It was a result of the technique she used just now. She had used her laws to burn her mana violently, this way getting greater strength for a brief instant.
But although the result was great, the side effect was equally devastating.
A normal person would be unable to use mana after this.
However, Lina did not think about that now.
Instead, she was looking at the man that sacrificed his life to give her an opportunity.
… It was the first time Lina saw one of her men dying in front of her.
Even if she did not know him well, she was still pained. She was more pained when she remembered how he smiled at her before rushing towards the daemon.
The pain in her body could not compare to the overwhelming pain in her heart.
Eventually, the fifteen-year-old read-haired girl was unable to suppress her tears.
Right at that moment, Lina felt someone approaching her from behind.
When she looked back, she saw someone familiar.
“It’s me.” I smiled softly and crouched in front of her, patting her head gently. “You protected our family, well done.”
“B-But, he… He died…”
Aware of the meaning of her words, I chuckled and caressed her beautiful red hair.
“It’s alright. Don’t worry, he will not die. Look.”
With a smile, I waved my hand and a magic circle appeared around the man. Then, his wound quickly regenerated, culminating with the man taking a deep breath.
*Cough cough cough…”
After vomiting several mouthfuls of blood, the man groaned and stood up slowly.
“See? He did not die.”
Actually, that was a lie.
He was dead.
However, reviving someone is not hard as long as the soul has not dissipated yet.
The most important part of a living being is the soul. I still don’t know of someone able to regenerate a soul that has already faded away.
But as long as the soul is present, any flesh wound can be healed, no matter how grave they are.
Even if his head was completely crushed, I could bring him back to life easily, not to mention just a stab in his heart.
Lina looked at me with an astonished expression, unable to understand what just happened. I just smiled and waved my hand again, this time creating a magic circle around each one of the members of Eternity’s Fangs.
Lina had not noticed it, but that young was not the only one dead. Another four men had died after failing to defend properly against the daemon’s attacks.
I did not hesitate to bring them back to life. As for the others, I healed their injuries completely, including Lina’s.
Something like this would have astonished any person in this world and made them realize how powerful I am, but it doesn’t matter.
Each one of the people here is trustworthy. And perhaps Lina can understand a bit more about my true strength this way.
At that moment, Katherine and Rose appeared. They were escorting Aunt Dayana, Aunt Sera, and Andrea.
In fact, the three of them had met an attack just after they left, but I told Katherine and Rose to take care of it and stayed to observe Lina’s battle.
I must say, her progress has been slightly faster than expected.
Unfortunately, she is still not decisive enough.
Well, she is still a young girl. I guess it doesn’t matter.
“Lina! It’s good that you are alright!”
As soon as she saw her youngest daughter, Aunt Sera rushed towards Lina and hugged her tightly. Aunt Dayana and Andrea, on the other hand, smiled wryly before looking at me with strange smiles.
Their gazes seemed to say ‘as expected’.
Chuckling softly, I shook my head and stood up.
But at that moment, another daemon appeared.
The daemon looked at us with a frown. Then, he looked at the remains of the other daemon and his expression turned ugly.
With a roar, his mana rose ferociously, reaching instantly to the twelfth layer!
Then, he charged towards us!
However, despite the intimidating pressure coming from the daemon, nobody but Aunt Sera panicked.
Aunt Dayana, Andrea, Lina, Katherine, Rose, and the men of Eternity’s Fangs were just looking at me, waiting for me to take care of the daemon.
I chuckled again and stood up, before walking towards the daemon.
With my first step, my sword appeared in my hand, and with my second step, I was in front of him.
And then my sword slashed his neck and pierced his heart.
Before the daemon could even be aware of my attack, I had returned to my previous location.
Everything happened in an instant.
And in the next instant.
Blood erupted from the daemon’s neck and heart.
With an expression of disbelief, he collapsed on the ground, dead.
Ignoring the shocked expression on Aunt Sera’s face, I turned around and faced Katherine and Rose.
“Let’s go, we need to take care of all the daemons that infiltrated the fort.”
