Reincarnated As A Dragon’s Egg ～Lets Aim To Be The Strongest～ - Chapter 40
Although the black lizard has slightly slowed down he tried to compensate by doing quick maneuvers. He would quickly turn right, go past to the left, then right, and surely there was another tree in the way.
Sometimes doing strange sandwiching movements and feints in order to shake me off, but he was not even able to stall me.
He did not hurry and make a mistake but assess the situation calmly.
Such a person is strong. I sometimes immediately get hot headed when a situation seems impossible.
Black Lizard was a better user of the〖roll〗skill than me.
But now it is different.
The number of unstable footholds of wood, and the arrangement of the demons horrifying scene causing the black lizard to repeatedly keep decelerating as to dodge them.
At this point in time, I'm accustomed to doing this because of all my practicing and prior experiences.
The running Black Lizard which previously lead his target in a secluded area never needed to try to avoid obstacles while drawing his opponents because he had the home field advantage. Now though, I took control of the pace,the direction, and speed we were going.
So no matter how complicated terrain gets I will never lose sight of him again.
Oh, wait, that was my mistake!
When you are rolling at this kind of speed it becomes hard to control. I end up crashing into three big trees rapidly decreasing my speed.
Well this is still a completely difference experience for me because so far I have been the one being chased but this time I am doing the chasing.
Letting the black lizard escape would be the worst outcome for me. If I caught him though, all he will have to look forward to is death.
Of course it is life threatening if I can't detoxify the poison. I won't let him escape.
But once I know I'm cured then I am of course immediately changing him into experience points on the spot.
The thing is he should also understand this so he should do whatever it takes not to get caught.
My impatience and fear plus other thoughts started to build, because rarely do things ever go my way.
while I ran I worried whether my arm could grow back, and if Black Lizard feared death.
I can still roll very quickly despite my mistake because I can easily judge the positional relationship of the lizard and myself in the dense, difficult terrain.
This can also be said one of the advantages of being considerably large.
I perfectly tracked the black lizard keeping a mutual distance of about 8m from each other.
The black lizard accelerates desperately probably trying to shake me off.
He keeps trying to evade by rapidly changing directions, but is continuously making the mistake of underestimating me.
The lizard's speed started to drop so I slowed also as to maintain a little distance.
There is no need to be hasty and make a mistake.
If I drive him to the cliff then I'll try to catch and secure him.
[ Normal skill 〖roll〗 of Lv 4 went up to Lv 5. ]
With this I won't need to use the element of surprise to win next time.
Looking around I have a good view of the surrounding and spot the cliff, It's closing up fast.
Already, just a little distance and that solves it.
There is an opening, now is my chance!
Between me and him is only about 5m left and it will all be over.
Yes there is just 1 meter left, patience is a virtue.
The monster is now slowing down, but if I collide into him and knock him off then this would have been a complete loss!
Time and time again his attempts to avoid me ended in his loss!
Furthermore it is only 1m.
Yes he is not slowing down!
There is no way he could overcome my speed!
I pity the black lizard-kun.
If he met me after he grew a little more then he'd have probably been a good rival.
The Black Lizard's speed started to decease.
Did he gave up on escaping?
’’kishi and kishishishishishi!’’
From rolling Black Lizard threw a large amount of stones.
These sand like bullets must be the black lizard〖pottery craftsmen〗skill.
How skillful do you have to be to be able to do this.
Hit ratio is low because he is rolling, but the sheer number makes up for that.
Unintentionally I am pleased that I get to fight on equal terms in my own field of expertise.
What are you going to do now?
First, it makes a big right turn.
In a moment, my consciousness faded.
I then noticed that I fell sprawled on the ground, I then noticed that I was face-to-face with the sky. Looking at the sky I realized my dwarfishness and the vast emptiness of it and a smile unintentionally leaked.
It took me a few seconds, to understand my current situation.
Watching his counterattack for an instant stopped keeping my awareness on the speed of my〖roll〗, and so I crashed into a tree.
When I raised my upper body the black lizard was barely visible, and was still running far far away while laughing .
Damn Yyyyoooouuuuu! !
I got up in a big hurry, and started chasing the black lizard with all my power.
If things stay as they are now I will lose sight of him!
This is an emergency I will have only one arm! This is absolutely not a joke! !
Finally I realized why I made that big of a mistake.
Simply put, when there is a high chance of victory then there is a risk of being too overconfident.
Thinking back during the cliff I should have tackled him from behind.
In the first place I did not know much about Black Lizard!
I am an Idiot! I am such a fool!
It is not supposed to feel like doing lengthy tag!
Immediately I put my maximum effort into〖roll〗.
Right, left, right!
Because I increased my speed too rapidly to control I was unable to avoid all the trees!
But not slowing down I bounce off tree after tree and slowly shave them, receiving the recoil and being forced forward!
It is not a clean run, I know.
I prepared myself for the damage and keep pushing myself even though the risk is very high!
I used the trail left behind by the Black Lizard's roll as a reference, what do you think about that you bastard?!
