A drizzle of blood descended all over the place.
“……The daughter of a spirit…………?”
There is no one on the branch where Rina was just now.
Both the anti-magic and the magic barrier that had been deployed remained intact.
No matter where he looked, Rina’s figure had vanished without a shadow.
“Hmm. She was hidden.”
He didn’t let her escape his evil eye for even a second.
Despite this, she disappeared.
It must have been the work of Gennul the Hidden Wolf.
At that moment, the wind blew and the wind wolves pounced on him, claws and fangs bared.
“Fire or wind, it is all the same.”
Eges thrusts out Dhid Atem and finishes off all the wind wolves.
But the wind did not abate, and the wind wolves only increased in number.
If he builds a wall to block the wind, the wind wolves will disappear.
But there will only be a different kind of wolf.
Gennul, the hidden wolf, could be anywhere.
The proof was Rina’s disappearance.
Her behavior before her disappearance should be a clue to the main body of Gennul.
What was Rina doing just before she disappeared?
She was in hiding just before she used to eliminate the countless light wolves that had jumped on her.
She was not eaten by the light wolves.
But she disappeared in spite of that.
The reason for this is–
“Hmm. So that’s how it is.”
As he mumbled, Eges sent .
[What are you up to, Demon King?]
[Ah. I will now catch Gennul the Hidden Wolf. There must be something hidden in his body. I don’t know what it is, but it must be some kind of magical space. Your magic spear can penetrate all dimensions. You should be able to create an entrance].
However, he could not believe that Gennul would be beaten so easily.
They must do it without being noticed.
[We will only have a little window of opportunity. If we fail, he will escape, and we will be finished.]
[A moment is enough. If you can really catch them.]
Holding up his hand, he draws a magic circle on the spot.
Neither of them had the slightest doubt that the other would not fail.
We both know the power of the other.
The two of them were once enemies, and now they were allies.
[Stop the wind, listen to the sound.]
The Dark Lord sprinkled blood from his left hand, and they turned into a thin ball that covered this vast space.
The interior became a windless space and the wind wolves disappeared.
At the same time, the was extinguished, and sunlight poured down from overhead, revealing the light wolves once again.
Once again, he looked at them with his magical eyes, but it seemed that they were not the ones who made Gennul the Hidden Wolf appear.
Then, why was Rina in a hidden state?
At that time, the light wolf that attacked her was glowing with a dazzling light. Rina must have been struck by it and reflexively closed her eyes.
The spirit of the hidden god, who could never be seen.
If the words of Gennul, the hidden wolf, were taken as they were, he could not be seen.
On the contrary, Gennul revealed himself only when he was not seen.
And, somehow, only in front of the person whose eyes were closed.
It was not that he was invisible, but that he was not really present while the Dark Lord’s eyes were open.
Perhaps that was the characteristic of the spirit of the hidden God.
He closed his physical and demonic eyes.
There was no sound, and no presence.
But he was certain that he was there, right now.
It was probably approaching me, eager to make me go into hiding.
He reached out his hand and grabbed the .
At that moment, he materialized.
A cracked voice echoed in his head.
“–Brilliant, you have caught me, whom you can never see. Come along, Anos Voldigoad–“
The sound of a door opening could be heard, and the touch of the hidden wolf disappeared from ’s hand.
When he opened his eyes, Gennul the Hidden Wolf was no longer there.
Eges was standing there.
[How’s it going?]
and sends .
[I’m not going to mess this up. I made a hole in the space of the hidden shrine and placed a marker there so that the dog Koro wouldn’t notice me. You can use to get there.]
If there was a hole in the magical space, it would be easy to rescue them.
The ones pierced by Dhid Atem would not be so easy to fix.
[Leave that Spirit’s daughter and your men to me.]
Eges may be inflexible, but unlike Girisiris, he was not a man who misspoke.
Sneaky means would be the most abhorrent to the Dark Lord.
[I hope I never have to fight you.]
[That depends on how things go. The fact that our interests were the same this time is merely a coincidence.]
Leaving Eges in his place, I headed for the other side of the door.
On the way, I turn my eyes to Lay’s view.
I could see the Spirit King――
