Chapter 253 – Triple Shot
Nihonium’s 8th floor.
Using Normal Bullets, I fired at the three-headed zombie and it was defeated.
As mentioned, there’s 3 effects for each head, one is invincibility, another reflection, and one is its weakness.
If you accidentally shot the wrong head, they reshuffle their heads again.
There wouldn’t be any problem if you just hit the weak head, but it’s horrible if you fail.
So, in order to defeat it, I had to fire 2 Homing Bullets and before the bullets hit the other two heads, I fired at the last head.
After defeating the zombie, the Luck seed was collected automatically from my pouch, and I returned to the mansion using the Transfer Gate.
Entering the basement, I was joined with Leia who was waiting for me.
[I’ll leave it to you.] (Ryouta)
Leia looks at me and nods.
I take care not to touch the seed as I held my pouch upside down and threw out a seed.
[Revive.] Leia cast her spell.
The three headed zombie was hatched.
Similar as always, I fired two Homing Bullets and fired the last head before the other two—–Basically I normally defeated it.
A new unseen bullet was dropped.
Picking it up, I wondered what kind of bullet this—–
[Yeah, what is it Leia] (Ryouta)
[Why not use Repetition Isn’t that faster] (Leia)
[Repetition huh, something like this] (Ryouta)
I said as I threw out another seed and had Leia casted her magic again.
As soon as the monster hatched, I used mine immediately.
The time it took for it to drop into a bullet took a matter of seconds as it was still on the air.
[I’m sure you’re wondering why not do this] (Ryouta)
[This monster is a blessing for me.
Since I must be quicker than the Homing Bullets, I could use that as a way to make quick judgements during battle.
This is still alright because I can recover from my mistakes, hence why I did not use Repetition.] (Ryouta)
Master is such a hard worker.] (Leia)
[Instead of being a hard worker, it’s more of an enthusiasm.
Since I like time attacks, when I play any go-kart games which loves to spam items, I would instead race against my ghost opponent instead of using items.] (Ryouta)
[I do not understand, but it sounded amazing.] (Leia)
I appreciate Leia’s response, as it feels nice to talk about these things.
[Well then, let us see…this new bullet’s effect.] (Ryouta)
[You want to try the effect now] (Leia)
I want to know what kind of special bullet it might be.] (Ryouta)
I loaded the new special bullet into my revolver.
Leia who has a pile of flowers she picked up in the corner of the basement, she casted Revive.
The flowers were all Arsenic monsters.
Like Arsenic monsters, the monsters were all rocks who doesn’t’ move.
[Here you go Master.] (Leia)
I fired the new bullet at the rock monster.
After it landed—-
An explosion sounded, and the rock shattered.
[Is it just explosion] (Leia)
[…..Leia, can you do that again.] (Ryouta)
Leia silently prepared a new monster without asking any further.
I fired the new bullet immediately after she cast Revive.
The explosion sound occurred again, and the rock shattered into pieces.
[What’s the matter Master.] (Leia)
[Can you do it one more time.] (Ryouta)
She set up the monster the third time.
Before firing the special bullet, I fired a Speed-Up Bullet on Leia and myself.
[I want to make sure both of us can confirm it.] (Ryouta)
Leia nodded, and I fired the special bullet.
In the accelerated world, the bullet flew slowly.
And finally, it landed on the rock.
Bang Bang Bang!
[The explosion appeared three times.] (Leia)
[That is so.] (Ryouta)
I knew it wasn’t that simple.
At normal speed, we can’t tell, but after being sped up, we could see.
[Can we do it again while we’re being accelerated.] (Ryouta)
Leia moved at an incredible pace and Revive the flowers, but since the rogue monster hatches at normal speed, it’s kinda meaningless.
In the accelerated world, the special bullet slowly moved towards the rock.
Bang Bang Bang!
The same explosion sound happened again.
[The sound is kinda different.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so] (Leia)
[You can’t tell] (Ryouta)
[Let’s do it one last time to check.] (Ryouta)
The fifth test, a quick kill after Revive, and we paid close attention to the sound.
Then, I looked at Leia.
[Yes, it does sound slightly different.
Only the second time sounded a little strange.
I wonder why.] (Leia)
[I think that the first and third explodes from outside, but the 2nd one is from inside.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so] (Leia)
[I don’t know whether it’s hidden or how the sound works, but it’s certainly different.] (Ryouta)
[Is that so I do not understand well.] (Leia)
Though Leia doesn’t know, but I’m 99% confident.
Why that is so…..
]Leia, one more time.] (Ryouta)
Based on the time, this might be the last test.
[Master Is that a normal bullet] (Leia)
[That’s right.] (Ryouta)
I fired 6 bullets.
I divided it into 3 routes and shot it in 1, 2, and 3 respectively.
Inside the accelerated world, the 2nd and 3rd are fired perfectly.
I kept on going without it fusing together.
The first shot hit the rock.
The place where it was shot was hit with the second shot, which caused an explosion.
At the same time, the 3rd shot had the same explosion sound, and it literally shattered.
[I knew it.] (Ryouta)
[What do you mean] (Leia)
[If I fire 2 shots in no time in a row, the new shot hits the previous broken attack, which makes it more effective than normal.
This special bullet fires 3 times, a triple shot, and its fired at the same time to maximize destructive power.] (Ryouta)
[I see, I still do not understand.] (Leia) (Me neither)
[I could only fire at most 2 bullets at the same time with the Speed Up bullet, but this triple shot bullet does it by itself.] (Ryouta)
The newly acquired special bullet, the Triple Bullet.
The destructive power was top class among the other special bullets.
