Shealmost fell from suddenly losing strength in her legs. She could barely maintain her balance, and she couldn’t stop her body from shaking.
“Why? But wasn’t the ritual’s strength definitely weakening? And weren’t the numbers of theundead also decreasing?”
“Ah, that’s because Imanipulated the surroundings to make it appear that way. I wanted to trick you guys into thinking that the ritual was weakening. Howwasit? Didn’t I do a good job?”
“You c-controlled itin that…!”
“Yes, I was in control the whole time.”
Grotim winked at Lubella.
“When the ritual is finished, I can control theundead without limits. I thought pretty hard about how I could convince you both that the ritual was slowly weakening.

For now, theundeadcreatures and monsters were really just acting as guards to surround them. Lubella breathed a sigh of relief,seeing that there was no human casualtyso far; however, she knew the situation could change at any moment.
Looking at the numerous monsters andundeadcreatures all around her, Lubella shifted her attention back to Zich. While holding his sword, Zich was on guard.
