Having finished eating, I lightly rinse the dishes with magic water.
Washing them this way makes it easier to clean up afterwards.

“There’s a bush called star berry that grows in the land further ahead.
Clamp Boars love their fruits, so there’s probably some there.”
“So we attack while they eat.”

Ophelia nods to Mir.
I see, so we can go to a place like that and find Clamp Boars even more easily than by using a luring magic.

“Natalia, what did you do first when fighting a Clamp Boar?”
“I provoked it to charge at me, and then I dodged.
When it was defenseless, I attacked its feet.”
“How did you provoke it?”
“Nothing really special.
It’s obvious it’ll charge against anything it sees as an enemy.”

Clamp boars have large horns, unlike regular boars, which they can use together with their tusks to crush their enemies.
But they need to get close to do that, and their way of doing so is very boar-like, by charging ahead.
The tactic was to lure a charge, and then time a dodge correctly.

“Just keep your eyes glued on it, and time your dodge appropriately.
That’s the most important part.”
“Yes, that method applies to any monster that has charging attacks too, not just Clamp Boars.
But this time we’ll start with a surprise attack, so that will change things a little.”

Ophelia nods hearing my explanation, but then repeats our current strategy.
She’s right, my idea only applies when fighting one head on.
I had not considered the fact we would be striking first.

“What should we do then?”
“It’s simple.
We’ll sneak inside the thicket, and approach him silently to deal a massive blow.
And in the best case, that should be lethal.”

Ophelia answers Mir, narrowing down our options to move.

“For a wound to be lethal, it must be on the head, neck, or heart.
So we can’t really approach from behind, but from the front.”

It’s hard to kill any quadruped, including Clamp Boars, with a single hit from behind.
There’s too much in the way of vitals, and they usually have thicker hair there too, making it harder to deal damage.

“So that means…”

I was about to say I would shoot it, but Ophelia interrupts me.
I had not expected to hear that at all, so I opened my eyes wide in shock, but Ophelia ignored me and continued talking.

“With her strength and reach, she’ll easily go through the Clamp Boar’s thick hide and fat.
There’s no other option.”
“Yes, I’m counting on you.”

Mir firmly holds her sword and answers energetically.
I want to say something, but in the end I decide to remain silent.
Ophelia had just told me earlier.
In truth, I didn’t want to do anything needlessly dangerous.
I’ve already fought a Clamp Bear before, and I know I could do it alone.

But Ophelia would not allow it.
For Mir’s sake, and my sake as well.

“We’ll support you Mir, but try to not force yourself too much.”
“Thank you, Natalia.”

All I can really do is try to distract the Clamp Boar so Mir doesn’t get injured.

“Let’s move then.”

We stand up and follow Ophelia.
