Chapter 56

Chapter 56 Fairy Vs. Apostle

The fainted Kurono had collapsed on the ground.


As Sariel looked over him, she started to rack her brains a bit.

Her first worry was what she should do with Kurono. The second was that she had once again ruined her regenerated right hand.

The latter could be solved as it would heal with the passage of time, but she couldn’t come up with what she should do with Kurono instantly.

In the first place, no matter how much Kurono tried to kill her, Sariel was not going to kill him. Sariel was fine if he would just live happily somewhere far away.

There might be experimental bodies that might curse Kurono because he was the only one who had gotten free.

But Sariel found some sort of salvation in Kurono who had attained freedom that none other experimental body including herself could attain.

She wanted him to live the share of every experiment that had died as well.

That is why she let him run when she met him in the 3rd laboratory and was also going to let him go this time as well.

A ‘normal’ life away from fighting. He had definitely achieved half of it at least. But,

“You have got something to protect as well right?”

The fairy girl that Kurono let go of before attacking, he met her in this world and she became precious enough for him, to put his own life on the line to protect her.

Sariel met countless men on the battlefield that fought to protect something, and, she did not let even a single one of them return back alive.

Kurono’s figure was completely overlapping with those brave heroes that came to fight only to face a tragic death.

“Still, I don’t want you to die.”

In a way, this was only to fulfil her own ego. She started thinking of a way to get him out of here.


As the commander of the Crusaders, she couldn’t just let someone who attacked her to go freely intentionally.

Kurono’s true identity was a modified [Foreigner], not a general or a noble of Daedalus, even lower importance than a normal civilian, so they won’t follow him to the ends of the earth to kill him at least.

But, if the Crusaders caught him, then he’ll be definitely executed for trying to assassinate the supreme commander.

So, she can’t call the army here.

But she can’t leave it as it is either.

If he woke up now, it’ll be good if he just ran away, but there’s a chance that he might start attacking again as well. In the first place, there’s a high chance that the guards patrolling would find him first.

In every case, the result isn’t very appealing.

Then, maybe she could make someone carry Kurono to a far away town.

But, Sariel didn’t have anyone to whom she could entrust such a personal task. And even if she is the supreme commander, she can’t give such a weird order either.

“……What should I do?”

After becoming an Apostle,she had done nothing but destroy the enemies so this was the first time she was thinking a bit in a human-like way.

Fortunately, she already informed the subordinates that she was going out for a bit so at least she had time to think.

Originally, she had come here because she had sensed the barrier breaking. The barrier was not the type to inform of intruders so nobody else had come here other than Sariel.

Sariel was standing there looking at Kurono and had not even remembered to erase her spear.

As she was thinking inside her head, she suddenly looked towards the forest.

(“Something is…..coming”)

At first, she only sensed it as an indescribable atmosphere but it soon turned into a clear ‘abnormality’.

Inside the dark forest, a green light could be seen.

That light was approaching this place and was getting stronger and bigger.

And, at the same time she saw the light, she realized that the trees in the forest were losing their colour.

As the light came closer and closer, the trees in visibility that had thick trunks instantly started to wither and the fresh leaves started to dry up and fall away.

“This is……..Life Drain.”

Sariel confirmed, the light in the forest was stealing the life force of the trees in the forest and collecting it.  Life force is an energy included in magical energy required to sustain life.

Magicians would never use life force unless they were using suicide magic – Apoptosis. And a magic that could steal the life force of others was a taboo among taboos, an extremely dangerous thing.

Sariel felt that it was fortunate that normal soldiers were not here.

If a drain of this level was activated, people with no training in using magic, and those that have low resistance would all have been in fatal danger right now.

Facing the green light, Sariel realized that even though she could not see it, life force was being drained like a storm right now.

All the trees in the forest had become dried, and it had become a forest of death where not a shred of life force could be sensed.

And, the reason of this abnormality, the emerald light finally came in front of Sariel.

“Get away from Kurono.”

It was a girl with a presence somewhat similar to Sariel.

Literally shining platinum blonde long hair and white skin.

Eyes that were same colour as the emerald green sphere of light surrounding her.

Wearing a frilly black one piece dress, on her back were 2 pair of rainbow coloured wings.

It truly matched the image of the fairy princess that had appeared once in a book Sariel had read a long time ago.

“Who are you?”(sariel)

But that girl with the unparalleled beauty, twisted her beautiful expression in rage, and released bloodlust that could be seen with naked eyes.

“I said—–“

In response to Sariel’s question, the girl,

“—Get away from him!!”

Attacked with an immense beam of magical energy.

(“A chantless [Flashing white arrows – Fortius Sagita]—–no, a type of [Extra magic] or [Original Magic]”)

As Sariel thought that, she took evasive manoeuvres but as the name suggested, the speed of those beam was at light speed.

Unable to completely dodge, the beam burned away the hem of Sariel’s priest vestment.


The beam that passed Sariel, struck the barrier and without almost any resistance, pierced through it and hit the castle walls.

The wall that got destroyed with a loud boom raised a cloud of dust reached even till where Kurono was lying.


Sariel heard the voice of the girl beyond the cloud of dust.

As soon as the cloud of dust disappeared, Sariel saw the girl lifting Kurono in her arms.


The expression on the girl right now as she called Kurono’s name while crying was so ephemeral and sweet that it made the expression she showed to Sariel feel like a lie.

The girl hugged Kurono’s body as she brought him to a sitting like state.

Sariel couldn’t hear what the girl was whispering but she should have realized that Kurono was only unconscious.

The girl, then, easily picked up Kurono in her arms even though she was half his size.

“Are you the girl that Kurono let go of earlier?”(Sariel)

“Don’t call his name so lightly!”

Once again a killing gaze pierced through Sariel.

Even the emotionless and detached Sariel understood that the girl was angry, and she understood the reason behind the anger as well.

Just how Kurono had protected her, she was also protecting him. And if someone so precious to her got hurt, she would either get sad or angry obviously.

“If you’re going to take him with you, then I won’t chase you.”(Sariel)

“I see.”

Just saying that, she turned away from Sariel while embracing Kurono.

“Now then, please go die.”

The wings on the girl’s back flickered.

As Sariel sensed the fluctuations in magical energy, the next moment, 10-odd balls of light shot out from her rainbow wings.

It’s not a beam so they were not at light speed, but they were still many times faster than Kurono’s bullets. Sariel, realizing the high speed, moved her body to dodge them, at that moment, she saw the trajectory of the balls of light get slightly changed.

(“Automatic-tracking ability.”)

Even when she kicked the ground to fly in the air, the balls of light clearly captured her motion and bent instantly at a right angle and corrected their trajectory.

(“Very high level, no choice but to shoot them down.”)

Sariel who landed on ground gripped the spear handle with her blood stained right hand.

It was already at a much lower condition than normal and furthermore, it was even damaged fatally by Kurono’s poison.

Although she didn’t want to use this since she wanted to avoid putting stress on her right wrist, but the only way to intercept those light balls was to use both her hands.


Releasing a small voice, she stuck out her white spear with speed even higher than the approaching light balls that were in front of her.

The instant the spear pierced through the balls of light.

The compressed light magical energy released pure destructive energy.

A blinding flash and a shockwave strong enough to rip off limbs attacked Sariel, but without swaying even a single bit, she kept on destroying the balls of light.


When she pierced through the last ball, the spear in her hand was also smashed to pieces and disappeared.

As the storm of flashes and destruction finally settled down, the grass lawn that she was supposed to be standing on had been gouged out and bare earth could be seen.

The only place where grass remained was where the sole of her feet were standing on.

“……..ran away.”

As she looked, the figure of the girl was nowhere to be seen.

She was seriously trying to kill Sariel, but she must have prioritized Kurono’s safety and left this place.

The moment she thought that, a chill ran down her spine similar to when she had faced the Dragon King.


Above her, a magic circle drawn with white lines of diameter 10m, suddenly appeared.

Letters of the Ancients or age of gods were drawn along with an unknown figure in the centre of the circle, but Sariel currently did not have the leisure to calmly analyze it.

“—–Light wing God shield – Aralux Aegis”

Sariel used her strongest defensive spell and wings of light spread out and covered her whole body.

At the same time, a mass of light with the same diameter as the magic circle came down from above.

A seven-coloured torrent of light, having the same strength as that of a Dragon’s Breath, swallowed Sariel.

    Why the heck would a halfbreed fairy got the same strength as the Dragon leader of biggest country in continent?

    Sure, the condition to activate her strength is too severe, life drain a whole forest, but the capability is a bit too high~


    • deadlybell

      simple the answer is one word


      she wants to protect the one she loves so it gave her more power than normal not to mention she stole the forests lifeforce and even serial’s life force to power herself up more without caring for her own wellbeing

      lol you underestimate halfbreed?
      they are the strongest race in any story in any world!


    • Corvo269

      Let’s explain this to you in game terms. She knew how to use the OP dragon king level spells, but her maximum MP is lower than the required amount. By eating part of mother nature, she got the necessary MP. Seems fair to me, she can’t do this in the middle of a town that easily. Forests or battleground would be the only places


    • Faust Voncleave

      We don’t know how strong fairies are yet. Also they didn’t say she had the same strength as the dragon king. This could be her ultimate attack and it is as strong as the dragon kings spammable breath attack. That’s a clear difference in strength.


    • Rocky Avalon

      she’s obvz the fairy queen…


    • coatl45

      It’s said that half-breeds of any kind are more powerful than their parents. Dhampirs have the strength and vitality of vampires as well as the ability to walk in the sun. Nephilim are said to be able to match their angelic parents, the same can be said for cambion half-demons. And demigods can surpass the gods as well. In stories and legends, these beings are often discriminated against by the people of their parents (especially nephilim who are targets of extermination by both heavenly angels and fallen angels) because they are so powerful and dangerous.


    • TheOneWeabooToRuleThemAll

      it said a ‘similar feeling’ she most definitely is nowhere near the strength of the dragon king and no way is Sariel ded and lets not forget she has a handicap because of her injured hand but yeah Lily is definitely stronker than Kurono by like 10-15 times


      • TheOneWeabooToRuleThemAll

        Oh yeah I forgot even though that one attack was as strong as dragons breath doesn’t mean that lily is as stronk as Dragon King


    • Behrmann

      Life drain+ already very powerful? Come on man ofc she is going to be OP. Especially since MC keeps trying to protect her, when she doesn’t need it at all

    Hopefully he’ll get power-up after this event


  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Lol! Wow! Lily left an impressive present for Sariel.


  • RyuGen

    God damn Lily is badass I was wrong to think that she should be killed off in the storyline hmm I would prefer Lily to be the main protagonist rather than Kurono :).


  • rusvan45

    i learn something from this chapter (if you make woman angry = you die) btw thanks for the chapter.


  • Art Schomber

    As far as the rant goes: He’s annoying because he doesn’t really “do” anything. He hasn’t tried to learn how to increase his powers, hasn’t tried to have anyone teach him how to get better. Hasn’t even set a goal. All he’s doing at this point is relying on others and hoping that’s enough to get him through. I keep hoping he’ll show some signs of growth, but in all honesty, in these 56 chapters, he’s really done nothing of mention.


    • anon-san

      Isnt that normal? I mean why does he need to train and get stronger? His only clear goal is to find teleportation magic, and true he hasnt done anything on that front yet but its not easy withoud info. What im trying to say is that after tasting hell in the falicity its normal to try living a healthy quiet life, after all he didnt believe that the cross church would reach the pandora continent. Lets see after this incidente, cause now he need to train to protect his quiet life.


      • Art Schomber

        If I felt that a powerful enemy was gonna come looking for me after breaking out of an experimental facility, and barely surviving said enemies attacks, I’d be doing everything in my power to make sure I was ready in case they found me. Esp when I have all the knowledge of this word to help me do it. Then again, maybe you’d call me a little paranoid, but i’d definitely do everything I can to make absolutely sure they couldn’t catch me again.

        I’m a machinist though, so I’m thinking a .50 cal unexpected sniper round would take care of most of my issues.


  • Anonymous

    Lets not forget the witch. She will probably be as much dangerous.


  • brightxdarkness

    well fairies are more op than most people thenk in this novel.Their affinity is higher than any magical extistance with some expections. Fairies use the power of nature as was explained in the previous episodes and they can absort,but forcefully obsorbing it is a taboo to the fairies thats why they are understimated.Can you imagine a fairys power who swallowed a city diameter forest life force? Fumu its exciting me but i think i wont see the full potential of a fairy at maximun limits…


  • RKain

    There’ll have to be some explanations for Lilly’s power, eventually. The “love” and “fairy” explanations are stop-gaps, at best.

    My thanks to you.


    • waitingwaiter

      i bet Life Drain is normally something utterly despicable to fairys who know nothing but hapiily playing around with flowers all day, but an angry maiden in love will definetly do some despicable things 😀


  • Kortodo

    Since Life Drain is a taboo, and should be more so for a fairy that is supposed to be close to life/nature, I wonder if it will have any consequences for Lily.

    Perhaps banished by the other fairies? Being the cause of it should be enough motivation for Kurono to improve himself so she doesn’t have to do it again.


  • Habib Haji

    Thanks for Chapter!

    Thanks to Translator and Editor for doing this Chapter!! ^^

    Thank you Lily!


  • ryuketsu

    Thank ya very much for the translation, translators!! Many thanks towards the Author!!

    *shudders* Fairies are scary.


  • stromcrowe

    So, he got lucky? Way to go plot convenience!


  • Brian

    Honestly I love Sariel more then Lily. And I love the Blue Witch the same as Sariel. They would make one badass team no? Those 2 are both Kuuderes after all!!! Will where this story go i wonder? And who the heck is Lily to have that much power anyways…the Dragon King was stupid for not recruiting forces like her.


  • truepurple

    I understand Kurono was trying to protect Lily but..

    1. Fighting with Lily would protect her more than throwing her away. Did he really think she would just run? Obviously she would come back, And the two of them would have a better chance at victory than singularly. He can protect her in battle better if he’s at full strength compared to unconscious or dead. Even if she did run, if he then lost, she would eventually be at risk. So throwing her away and engaging in a deadly opponent was the opposite of protecting her. It’s heroic looking on the surface, but way stupid.

    2.People are right, Krunono should have been actively working on increasing his strength. It seems a foolish notion that he’d never have to worry about Sariel again, he had been taking things way too easy to this point. Especially, he should have been seeking out learning to harness his magic, seeking out. proper mage instruction. So facing Sariel, by herself he says “this is my best opportunity” but considering he still hasn’t tapped into most of his potential, that is not at all correct. Retreating, and finally doing what he should have been doing all this time would make for a greater chance of victory latter. And there is no reason for him to think he won’t get singular battle with her again in the future. Yes, lives would be at risk in the meanwhile, but they are still at risk if he loses.

    So he should have either fought with Lily, and/or retreated to properly study and increase his magic for future battles (and fight with Lily in that future battle, perhaps training to combine their magics or at least some combo moves with her)
