Monster Flood’s Demise
When the winning panther roared, the dark panthers who were attacking the people stopped.
With the next roar, the dark panthers turned its body around and bared their fangs towards the other monsters who were supposed to be their friends.
Eh…? Eh…? What’s happening?
Unlike me who was taken aback by it, the knights and the adventurers responded quickly.
“Let’s use this chance! Let’s go right away!”
Someone’s voice prompted the others to shout, “Oou-!”
Leon-san and the others were also headed towards the Goblin King immediately.
That’s right. There is no time to be taken aback. For now, let’s just think about defeating the Goblin King!
“Area Protect Shield. Targets are the knights, the adventurers, me, and Noir, and Luan!”
After reapplying the Area Protect Shield whose effect wore off just now, I drank an MP Potion.
My MP was healed right away.
Next is whether or not it will reach it.
“Thunder Lance to Goblin King!”
The thunder lances rained incessantly from the sky towards the Goblin King.
“Is it defeated…?!”
“No, not yet.”
After the light that was emitted from the thunder lances disappeared, the Goblin King was still standing over there.
Really. I wonder if it has Magic Shield? Or since it’s a Boss Monster, one intermediate level magic won’t bring it down, I wonder…
From what I could see, it didn’t seem to receive quite the damage.
But maybe it was a little bit damaged? The Goblin King slowly turned its head to look at me.
Speaking of which, if one were to attack first, one will get its aggro!1
In the game, the one who attacks a monster first will get the monster’s attention and attack. Utilizing it, a paladin2 usually attacks first, but…
For some reason, it’s not just my imagination, but…it’s giving me a glaring look…
The Goblin King slowly changed its route.
Noooo! It’s coming over hereeee!
But fortunately for me, that route leads to Leon-san and Argo-san first.
Leon-san nimbly jumped up.
With flames and wind dancing on his sword, he attacked the Goblin King’s torso.
Leon-san’s attack seemed to be effective, as the Goblin King groaned.
Argo-san and the Izel fort’s knights all pointed their swords towards the Goblin King.
“Heal to Argo-san, Heal to Leon-san!”
“O healing wind, assemble and heal Jacob! O healing wind, assemble and heal Stan, o healing wind, assemble and heal Lancely!”
Frank-san and I chanted heal, healing everyone.
Leon-san and the others continued to fight without having to worry about receiving damage, as they commenced attacks successively on the Goblin King.
In the middle of it, the Chris fort’s knights merged, sweeping the goblins who were surrounding the Goblin King.
Eventually, a short time that felt like a long time passed…
At last, the Goblin King fell down to the ground.
“We defeated the Goblin Kiiiiiinnnggggg!”
“Leonhart-sama defeated ittttt!”
“Banzai to the hero!”
“Banzai to the hero!”
The shouts of joy welled up as if they could shake the ground.
There, Leon-san held up his sword clad in flames and wind to the sky.
“Everyone! The Goblin King has been defeated. Now, I shall declare that this is the demise of the Monster Flood! However, despite the monsters’ lack of command, the monsters’ threat has yet to pass. Let’s exterminate the monsters without losing your spirit!”
Another cheer welled up as they began to exterminate the remaining monsters.
Now that they have lost their king, the monsters who formerly moved in control, was now moving in confusion. There were a lot of monsters who ran away to the Demon Forest.
“Don’t chase them too far! Defeat the remaining monsters!”
At Leon-san’s command, the knights and the adventurers who were about to chase the monsters into the Demon Forest stopped.
And then, I…was standing in front of Noir who turned large.
“Noir…why do you have this figure…?”
I looked uneasily at Noir whose body was a size larger than the normal dark panther.
The dark panthers who were fighting alongside Noir now returned to the Demon Forest after the Goblin King was defeated.
Well, the child before me was Noir, but…Although it was Noir…
I understand, but…
Noir purred as if it was lonely.
Before I even noticed it, Argo-san was next to me as he reached out in concern.
But Argo-san couldn’t heal this sadness.
“Why did you turn biggeeeeeeerrr?!”
“Eh? That’s the problem?!”
Isn’t that obvious?!
”I mean, it was still a child before, you know? Normally, one would need more time until it grew up to be an adult, right?! If so, I’m already prepared for the day it turned into an adult someday. Growth is something joyous, after all. But, but, I never thought that it would suddenly turn bigger right away like this! Noir is still cute now, but I want to fully enjoy the time when it was still a childddddd!”
“Sorry. I was thinking that it was something more serious…”
Argo-san whispered as if he was drained of strength.
“Regardless of whether it’s serious or not, it’s a tragedy for meeeee!”
At that time.
I heard the familiar adorable cry.
When I raised my eyes, I saw the child Noir!!!
“Noir, you just turned small?!”
“Nooooiiiiiirrr! You’re also cute when you’re big, but as expected, you’re way cuter when you’re smaaaallll!”
I hugged Noir who rushed over with all my strength, and that marked the end of the Monster Flood for me, as I could finally laugh in relief.
After defeating the Goblin King and cleanly sweeping the gathered monsters, we decided to stay at the Chris fort for the time being before returning to the Izel fort on the next day.
Both the humans and the horses were injured and tired, so we couldn’t just go home like that.
The Chris fort’s structure was similar to Izel fort, and when we arrived, there was a loud cheer welcoming us.
Since it was unreasonable to have everyone residing in the fort, we received some tents and it was decided that we would be resting there.
But a large quantity of sake4 and food were carried over from the kitchen right away, and we were drinking and singing near the tent—it was akin to a festival.
It seemed that Leon-san and Argo-san had a meeting with the people in charge of the Chris fort, so I was enjoying the feast together with Georg-san and Amanda-san.
“This is delish~. What meat is it?”
When I tried to eat a stew made of some meat, it tasted like a tomato sauce and was very delicious. The special product of the area around here seemed to be tomatoes, so they seemed to eat lots of cuisine that was made using tomatoes.
“Aah, isn’t that horn rabbit’s meat?”
“…Is that so?”
Sorry, Luan-kun, for deliciously eating your friend…
“Even so, Noir-chan seemed to be a special kind, isn’t it?”
After that, Argo-san said that Noir could have been a variant, or moreover a special kind.
Why did he think it was a variant? Well, normally a dark panther’s eyes were yellow, but Noir’s were blue.
And this was only a prediction, but Noir was supposed to be the original Monster King, but since it turned tame to me, a Goblin King was born in exchange of it.
If not, after Noir evolved, there won’t be any other suitable explanation as to why the dark panthers were listening to what Noir said suddenly.
Actually, I was also guessing that, though…
No, anyway, I was wondering whether I levelled up again or not, and when I looked at my status…
Yuuri Kujou. 8 years old. Sage level 23.
Stray from Another World
Panther King’s Friend
The effect of being in a party was amazing, for I suddenly levelled up to level 23! Leon-san defeated the Goblin King, and since I launched first attack on it, I received lots of experience points, didn’t I?!
Putting that aside, I wondered about the new title I just acquired. [Panther King’s Friend]—the panther king, no matter how I thought about it, was it talking about Noir?
In other words, Noir is the panther king.
I wonder if that has the same meaning as the Monster King…?
In addition, Noir who turned bigger had the body size even bigger than the other dark panthers…
Ah, speaking of which, Amanda-san said that if Noir were to get as big as that, wouldn’t I be able to ride on its back? Next time, should I try asking it?
“Although you’re special kind, you’re adorable, so it’s alright.”
When I said it, Noir cried, “Nya~n,” as if it agreed.
“You’re cute, clever, and strong, my child is the best!”

- The Japanese RAW’s term is ‘Hate’, but I adjusted it to ‘Aggro’ since it’s more familiar in the gaming world. It is a mechanism used in many MMORPGs, by which enemies prioritize which characters to attack. The player who generates the most aggro on an enemy will be preferentially attacked by it. ↩
