He was still coughing sand when he noticed the Cards of Fates next to the skeleton. The sand upon his head began to fall, almost burying the cards. As he swiped his hands towards them, he failed to notice the two gleaming eyes that shone from the sockets of the skull. The skeleton stood up and clenched around his neck.
Brendel was shocked. Don’t even mention an ordinary skeleton, Brendel did not even pay attention to the lowest-ranked Skeletal Troopers within the ranks of the Madara army. However, if Brendel were to hesitate a moment in this situation, he would be buried under several thousand tons of rock.
It was right at this moment when a bright Fire Arrow brushed past his face and landed on the claws of the skeleton with a ‘thud’. Sparks sprayed everywhere and Brendel could feel his hair curling up under the heat. However, the attack crushed the bones and with just a slight tug, Brendel freed his hand and grabbed the Cards.

“When did she learn magic!?!”
She had quite the talent. To have made such an accurate shot, not even those high-leveled players could manage that!
But he immediately came up with a scarier thought. It might be that she never really aimed, and that her luck enabled her to make that ‘stray shot’. [T/L Note: Dude, she saved you. Why complain!]
Brendel shivered. The more he pondered about the girl’s carefree personality, this seemed to be more likely than her being a pro mage. He decided to not let her use magic, or there would be no saying when he will be toasted by a fireball in the future.
By then, not many people were left at the place. Most had retreated. Brendel signaled to the remaining people to hurry their exit, while he tailed them from behind as well. The others saw that their lord had escaped peril and retreated as well. But at
