Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 14]

Stick it through with the sword

“How long do you think it will take you to hunt down this?”

As we ran through the mine, we kept our distance from the worm.

The worm that had noticed us was desperately chasing us.

“I’ve never fought such a giant worm before, so I’m not sure.”

But if I had to guess…

“Maybe a minute, just to be safe…”

We don’t really know what we’re dealing with.

So, it’s better to be cautious.

“…Are you serious?”

“Eh?”

Count Rieton suddenly asked me in a low voice, which puzzled me a bit.

Did I say something strange?

“Perfect! Then I’ll support you to the fullest!”

Saying that, he stopped and turned around.

Then, he clapped towards the worm.

Not only did he clap, but he sent a shockwave towards it.

The worm has no eyes.

It moves solely by sense of hearing.

But the shockwave temporarily stunned it.

It was as if in an instant, it had been engulfed in darkness.

The worm slowed down, halting its attempt to chase us.

It’s time to act.

“Thank you!”

“It’s nothing!”

I passed Count Rieton and quickly approached the worm.

I clenched my fist and forcefully struck it on the head.

“Damn it! Given its size, one blow is not enough!”

Despite hitting it and diverting part of its direction, the worm kept moving.

In fact, it seemed more active after that blow, as if it sensed its life was in danger and tried to escape from me at all costs.

“You won’t escape!”

I made the instant decision to draw my sword.

With all my strength, I threw the sword towards the worm.

The plan was clear.

To use muscular force to throw the sword and pierce the enemy’s insides!

“Go for it!”

The sword launched towards the worm followed exactly the course I envisioned.

It penetrated its interior, and the sound of reaching deep inside resonated.

At the same time, the worm came to a complete stop.

Mission accomplished… I suppose.

“Bravo!”

“Eh?!”

Suddenly, I felt my body being lifted, and something strong enveloped me.

Oh, this feels familiar.

It’s the muscles again. They’re trembling.

“Haahh… we finally got them… Wait… Why is Count Rieton hugging Kyle-san?!”

“That’s concerning! Are you okay with that?!”

Elisa and Yui said bewildered.

Meanwhile, I tried to free my arms from the pectoral as best as I could and said with a barely audible voice:

“Help me…”
