The Eldest Daughter Walks Down The Flower Path - Chapter 83
Like the claws of a ferocious beast, Radis’ sword ripped through the mist.
As the spider web that appeared in the fog coiled itself around her sword, a deafening roar could be heard.
This was a product of coincidence, but the black substance that was stuck on the sword was a very flammable material.
Since spider webs were inherently prone to catching fire, as it wound up on the sword itself, the flames that burst out burned even more fiercely as though oil had been poured over the sword.
The flames swirled up with a sharp wind accompanying it. Both fire and wind eventually drove away the thick fog.
Now, Arachne could no longer hide in the mist.
She already knew this was the case, but Radis saw that Arachne was in her half-human form while holding a long branch in her hand.
‘A branch of the Underworld Tree!’
Arachne could control golems with that branch.
That was originally Arachne’s fighting style.
Now that her opponent was Radis alone, she would have to come down directly, but Arachne originally acted as a commander.
Usually, she would capture her careless enemies through her webs and hang them onto the branches of the Underworld Tree. The other enemies she couldn’t capture right away would be dealt with by the golems.
The first time she faced Arachne, Radis didn’t know this.
That’s why she had gotten tricked.
But this time, it was different.
“I won’t give you the time to do the same thing again.”
Radis dashed forward.
Arachne’s spider head opened its huge mouth at the prey that fearlessly rushed right towards her.
Her large, poison-coated tusks glinted.
And right then, Radis threw one egg into her mouth.
Radis looked to the side for just a moment, but she saw that the other monsters became more agitated than she thought.
While Arachne freaked out, she shut her mouth.
Her eight legs, which had been spread out so that she could snatch up Radis, folded in.
Arachne’s upper human body was also startled, and Radis saw her looking at her spider mouth with her head down.
Radis did not miss this chance. In a split second, she jumped on the spider’s head.
Her sword drew a long line, and then black blood soared through the air like ink.
At the same time, Arachne’s arm, which was holding onto the branch of the Underworld Tree, flew through the air.
As Arachne lost an arm, she let out a petrifying scream.
But Radis did not stop there.
She infused mana into her sword with all her might.
She could feel the sword shaking violently, as though it was also screaming, but it couldn’t be helped.
She then stabbed the sword at the spider’s head and pushed down with all the strength she could muster.
A terrible noise rang out as the rusty blade cut through the thick shell that was like an iron plate.
It felt like her wrist was about to give in, but Radis didn’t stop.
This was her revenge.
Revenge for her comrades who died because of Arachne.
Black blood shot up like a fountain, and the spider head subsequently flew through the air.
Radis felt the body of the spider, which lost its head, buckle under her feet.
But this wasn’t the end.
Radis turned around quickly.
Arachne had two heads. If even one was still intact, then she would be able to regenerate other body parts.
Of course, once the spider head was lopped off, it was the human head’s turn next.
[ …ronos—! ]
At that moment, Radis was about to rush towards Arachne’s upper human body, but she stopped in her tracks.
[ Place, that place…! ]
Arachne’s upper human form wasn’t looking at Radis, who was rushing towards the monster.
Arachne was struggling to move her spider torso, floundering with just one human arm.
The monster was looking at the shiny egg that had fallen out of her spider mouth’s tusks, eventually falling to the floor.
Standing over the severed spider head, Radis was stunned for a moment.
‘What? I can… understand what it’s saying?’
[ Kronos…! ]
Arachne staggered towards the egg.
Then, she knelt down.
That was, she might have intended to kneel down, but because she couldn’t properly control her body any longer, the monster’s huge body hit the floor.
The spider body’s skin broke from where its head had been chopped off of, and black blood poured out profusely.
One of its front legs was bent in a strange direction.
But Arachne did not seem to care one bit.
[ Place, that place… ]
Arachne reached out with her remaining human hand, then cradled the shiny egg to her chest.
Then, even as black blood continued to flow, Arachne began to shuffle off someplace else, leaving Radis behind.
“What the hell…?”
