"Damn it. This is scary. Even for me." Here I am, facing Jormungandr at its eye level.
"Hey Zieglind, I'll be retreating," Herold told me unexpectedly.
He then showed me a giant hole in his stomach. "That thunder bear was too powerful for me. The five of them were flanking me so this is what happened. When I knew you were coming, I teleported them all in different locations."
"Got it. Let's take later."
"Sorry about this."
Herold left immediately.
Focusing back on the World Serpent, I have heard and read countless stories of Jormungandr in the books back when I was still in college. But I didn't think that I'd meet this creature here at this world.
"Leave." A single word muttered by the World Serpent and it sent chills down to my spine.
"…What?" I timidly asked.
The world serpent looked at the sky then opened its mouth. A sudden purple smoke came out of its mouth and the whole sky darkened and rained.
