I Was a Sword When I Reincarnated (WN) - Chapter 628
Our Strategy to Defeat the Great Magic Beast
Translated by Tods

「We’ll be the one to make the great magic beast weaker」
「That way, after Weena Rhyn separates Rhyn from the great magic beast with the Sacrament of the Evil God, she will be able to defeat it, right?」
Weena Rhyn looked at Fran, who suddenly said that she was going to attack the great magic beast with a dumbfounded look.
Rhyn looked at us with the same look too. As expected of twins. Although Rhyn was much younger in appearance, they looked exactly alike when they had similar expressions.
Well, I guess that was why Rhyn had changed her appearance. Even if she was just acting like a mysterious girl, if she looked exactly like Weena Rhyn, it would only cause some kind of commotion.
「Were you listening to me and Rhyn? You can’t get close to that great magic beast. These beings aren’t so careless that a single strike would be enough to take care of it」
「We’ll be fine」
「That thing was not something that can be handle with just your willpower alone, you know?」
「Urushi and I are immune to the Evil God’s control」
「We can negate the Evil God’s control, so we’ll be fine」
「B-but that shouldn’t be possible…」
Hearing Fran’s words, they both looked at Fran with a puzzled look. Sierra was as surprised as they were too.
「…You’re not lying, are you?」
「…I’ve never even heard of such an ability」
「But it’s the truth」
Even though Fran insisted, they didn’t seem to believe her. They were clearly doubting her.
「To be honest, I don’t know what should I do if Fran went out of control because of it…」
「But if Fran really can weaken the great magic beast… It may be possible to separate Rhyn from it」
「Just leave it to me」
In the end, no matter how much Fran argued, Weena Rhyn and Rhyn still doubted her. Well, it must be hard for them to believe that it was possible to negate the control of the Evil God.
If someone was strong enough, they might be able to repel the control, but that didn’t mean that they could completely negate it. They could only resist it.
Even if it was evil, a God is still a God. There was no such thing as an existence that could deny their power. That seemed to be what their common sense was telling them.
「…I’m coming with you too」
「Sierra? But what about the ritual?」
「We’ll return to the ritual once we’ve inflicted some damage to the great magic beast」
「But first, aren’t you forgetting about the Evil God’s control? As I said before, if you don’t have a spiritual body like mine, you’ll end up being controlled. Well, Fran was an exception though」
「You believe me?」
「I can’t sense any lies from you… And my intuition tells me that we should let you do it」
「I am a spirit that rules over Time, you know? So, it can’t be just a hunch」
It seemed that not only was she able to see the future, she also had some kind of power to predict the better options.
「And that intuition is telling me that Sierra will be okay too…」
「In my case, it was thanks to this sword. Thanks to uncle Zelos Reed that was sealed in this magic sword, I can now prevent the control of the Evil God from corrupting me」
Since Zelos Reed was an evil person, did that make him resistant to the Evil God’s control? But wouldn’t an evil person be more vulnerable to the Evil God’s control?
「Uncle Zelos Reed had a skill called Cannibalism. It allowed him to absorb the power of the Evil God」
I see. So, it was thanks to that skill, huh? That skill seemed to have a much wider range of use than I had imagined. Maybe I should do some research on it later.
「Then Urushi, Sierra, and I will be the ones to attack the Evil God」
「Wait! Even if you use the Sacrament of the Evil God, that doesn’t mean you can just resume the ritual so easily, you know?」
「Is that so?」
「It’s only natural, right?」
Well, certainly, it was only natural.
But we would be grateful if Sierra could help us. He may be inferior to Fran in terms of combat power, but he knows more about Evil Spirits than we do.
So, we discussed what was the best way to attack it, and we all decided to cooperate.
Weena Rhyn and Rhyn also exchanged a few words to each other, though this time without much tension.
「Okay, let’s wrap it up. First, I will initiate the ritual of the Sacrament of the Evil God. But I need Sierra, Romio, and both of Zelos Reeds to be here after you have launched your attack」
「Then Fran will start attacking, and Sierra will join in the attack once the ritual activation is complete」
「Leave it to me」
It seemed that even when the Sacrament of the Evil God was activated, its effects were not instantaneous. In the first place, the Sacrament of the Evil God was the ability to absorb power from evil and use it as the user’s power.
In the same way, we could also give orders to the weakened evil being.
But this time, our goal was to deprive the Evil Spirit of the piece of the Evil God that was dormant within the great magic beast and channel the Evil Spirit that would normally flow into Romio to Sierra and the two Zelos Reeds.
In other words, not only Sierra and the sword Zelos Reed, but Zelos Reed could also join the attack.
「The outcome will depend on how well you guys do it」
「If you guys manage to weaken that magic beast’s power, I’ll be the one to defeat it after I manage to separate Rhyn from it」
「But if you can’t, Weena Rhyn won’t separate me from it and she’ll reseal it with her sealing technique」
If all goes well, then everyone’s wishes would come true.
Even if we failed, we could at least try to get it sealed. But to be honest, it would just be a solution to postpone the problem though.
But it was much better than allowing the great magic beast from getting fully resurrected.
However, Fran didn’t seem to have any intention of ending it that way.
「I promise, I’ll make sure we all end up with a smile on our faces」
