Iris was upset by Mariel’s appearance. However, she quickly composed herself to face Faren.
“Thank you, Mariel.”
“It’s okay. You can leave the small fry to me,……, and do what you want.”
It’s not like that the enemy Mariel called “small fry” included weak ones. Some of them dropped back in alarm when she appeared – but Mariel’s blade hit even them. –That was the Steel Thread Sword used by Fiss Maiden, one of the Swordsman Gang. It’s not that Iris has actually fought, but she had seen it. Not only Fiss but also …… Mariel’s skill is out of the ordinary because she is using that sword at will. …… At least, Iris can’t use that sword. She thought it was something that could only be used by someone like Fiss, who had the senses of a demon. However, Mariel wielded it at will.
“…… You did not aim at me on purpose, huh? But I never thought we’d be so defeated by just one person.
“If you wish to surrender, release the barrier now.”
” As for the barrier, stopping me alone will not stop this magic. But I’m also not going to surrender as well. You guys, I’ll take care of Iris. I’ll leave the girl to you.”
The mages who had been holding back also started to move. The aim was Marielle – Iris glanced at her, but she just nodded with a kind smile. “I’ll take care of it” – that’s what she meant.
(Though I didn’t expect I’d need help from not only Mr. Schweitz but his family as well……)
In the current situation, she would honestly be grateful. The only thing that Iris needs to do is to defeat the enemies as soon as possible. So, Iris grasped her sword, concentrating on only one person, Faren Tobelt. It was Iris who made the first move. She kicked the ground to close the distance between her and Faren. It’s not like Faren had a weapon – if they close the distance and fight, Iris would have the advantage.
“Don’t think I’m going to let you get too close.”
A cracking sound reaches her ears. She wondered what it was that cracked – she ran the thought through my head and realize that she misunderstood. What she felt at her feet was cold air. It was the Ice Spear that extended from his blind spot. Iris jumped to the right and avoided the attack. She saw that Faren himself was covered in cold air. She could see the frost gradually forming on the ground around him, freezing his surroundings to a crisp.
“It was the first time for you to see a mage who uses cold air?”
‘I’ve heard that …… ice magic is difficult to handle and it takes a lot of practice to bring it up to the level of a real war.
“I’m perfectly capable of handling it.”
As soon as Faren said that, the cold air spread to the surroundings at once. The ground froze, and the plants and trees transformed into beautiful ice sculptures as if they were created by an artist. Furthermore, the ice on the ground changed. As a thorny path was created, Faren continued in a bland tone.
“You can’t get to me now. Even if you were wearing shoes, these icy thorns would easily penetrate.”
He was probably pointing out that Iris was still barefoot. It’s true that Iris can’t get close to it in the current situation – but that’s only if Iris doesn’t do anything.
“You think I can’t destroy it?”
Iris stabbed her sword into the ground – she put her magic power into it, and what she released was the lightning. The lightning, which spread around the area, easily destroyed the ice thorns that Faren had created. Faren’s eyes widened in surprise.

The moment Iris tries to close the distance between her and Faren, she felt a kind of chill. It was not a chill that he released, but something that she sensed was a trick. A moment later, Iris leaped up to distance herself from Faren. Checking where she was just now, she saw signs of an attempt to catch Iris.
“…… So it’s powerful enough to freeze you instantly.”
“You see? That’s the power of my magic.”
“You’re so powerful, why–”
“I told you that this is for the good of the country. It’s not something you can understand.”
It was certainly not something that Iris could understand. What Faren was doing was clearly an act of treason against this country. However, Faren insisted that he was only doing it for the sake of this country. In order to confirm his true intentions, it was necessary to defeat him anyway.
(Probably, I can’t defeat him even if the attack reaches me from this distance, though Mr. Schweiss would be able to use his Invisible to hit him…….)
Iris’s long-distance attack is the “flying thunder” that sends a blade of lightning flying. It is fast, but the attack power is not high. If a wall of ice is built around it, it will be easily blocked. As they faced each other, Iris exhaled quietly. A white breath entered her gaze and she looked directly at Faren.
“Give up. As a swordsman, you can’t get close to me.
‘You also have some reason for not coming closer than you have to, don’t you? For example, you can’t move …… there in order to maintain that magic.”
Faren did not answer. If he could move while maintaining that magic, then he should approach Iris. But the reason he didn’t do that – he found it difficult to move while maintaining their magic. The reason why he did not chase Iris as much as they should was that the magic was of the type that ‘unfolds’ on the spot. In other words, it’s like a ‘barrier’ that can only be activated in a predetermined location. If she takes time, Iris has a chance to win. However, this way does not have any benefits. Iris had to defeat Faren as soon as possible.
“I’ll take a shot– I’ll decide in one blow–“
Iris made up her mind and stepped forward. She figured out the right timing and leaped there. However, even Iris can’t reach Faren in only one step. Even if he were to thrust her sword into the ground and unleash a thunderbolt, she would not be able to follow through. If her feet touched the ground, she would be caught. Faren knew that and as if to push Iris even further, he pointed his “ice spear” toward the spot where Iris had landed. What Iris deployed at her feet was a “wall of magical power”.
Faren’s eyes widened in surprise. Before landing, Iris landed on the “wall of magic power” she had created, tilting her direction slightly toward Faren and putting a lot of pressure on both feet. –This is a technique used by Ruino Tomura. The moment he kicked out, the “wall of magic power” collapsed, but Iris instantly closed the distance to Faren. Faren also reacted to this, however, Iris is faster. The ” Purple Lightning ” wielded by Iris cut down Faren.
“Gah! Ha! ……”
Iris passed Faren with her momentum. She tried once again to create a wall of magic power, but this time she failed and it quickly collapsed. As she fell to the ground, she saw that the ice magic that Faren had created was also being dispelled.
…… “Hmm, I knew it was difficult to use it in a real battle right off the bat. But it worked.”
Using the techniques of those she had defeated in the past, Iris had defeated Faren.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
