CCM 04 – Yo, There Shouldn’t be any Skill more Powerful than a Sword Saint, right? Probably.


[Theeere~~wee~~goo~]

.

Rei lifts her fully loaded backpack accompanied by her cutesy tune.

.

–The second princess of the royal family, Reimira Li Arceus.

A princess who suddenly asked me to accompany her somewhere.

.

She’s currently wearing a hat right now along with some cheap clothes but these things aren’t enough to diminish her natural beauty. Her hair is currently tied behind her but during the times where she needed to act as the second princess, her long hair freely shows its glamour as she performs her duty with a firm character. The gap between the Rei right now and the second princess of the royal family still lingers in my memory.

.

[….So.]

.

She then takes a second look at the corpse of the black grizzly.

The area around its body is heavily scorched inadvertently when I casted my magic.

.

[This… How were you able to do such?]

[………]

.

Even if I had a few more seconds, I can’t really provide you with anything but a brief answer.

.

[Iya, I don’t know either.]

[Eh?]

[Really. I just casually reached out my hand then bang, things just blew up.]

[Ca-casually reached out your hand, you say…]

.

Oh, it is unusual even for Rei to make such a fearful face.

.

[This place looks like it was devastated by an S class monster, you know…. Everyone will be surprised if they know of what happened earlier.]

[Do – don’t be so exaggerated.]

[I’m not exaggerating! Creating an explosion up to this level with magic alone is something far from the norm!]

.

No no no no no.

That’s just too unrealistic.

I didn’t explore any other path aside from the sword though. So my knowledge when it comes to magic can never get closer than zero to none.

.

But if I remember correctly, what she meant by ‘S class’ must be pertaining to rank and classification of monsters by their strength.

.

The weakest being E and the strongest bearing S.

The risk and danger from facing such monsters start to jump exponentially from class B onwards.

.

Especially against class A monsters whose strength is akin to a disaster.

Their mere existence is that of a calamity that nevermind a city or a village, it can erase even a whole country.

.

So just listening to Rei saying that the magic I use is on par with an S class monster, no matter how I look at it, is just too ridiculous.

.

[Arios… Perhaps the skill you acquired is more powerful than we thought, don’t you think?]

[Compared to the ‘Sword Saint’? Haha no, no, no, that’s just too much.]

.

I’m sure she’s trying to help me pick myself up.

To me, who was not able to get the skill Sword Saint and got disowned by his own family, Rei must be doing her best to lessen the burden in my heart.

.

This bratty girl… she’s already this mature, huh.

.

[Wh-….what are you staring for? Is there something on my face?]

.

Rei talks to me with a tinge of red on her face.

.

[Ah.]

.

This is bad.

It took too long for me to appreciate her growth and stared too much.

.

[My bad. No, don’t mind me.]

.

Only if things went well then I can accompany and stay right by her side.

.

Only if things went well then I can inherit and perform the duty and glory of the Makuba family.

.

It may be presumptuous of me but… At the very least, I want to be able to accompany and stay right by her side until she returns back to the castle.

.

Because at the very end — the orphan, Dudley, will be taking as well the duty to stay right by her side someday.

.

[Ah. Oh right!]

.

Rei then claps her hands all of a sudden as it seems like she’s remembered something.

.

[My skill has been improving too little by little. That’s why don’t hesitate to count on me during battles, okay!?]

[Ah… If I remember correctly, [Holy Mage], was it?]

[Un! I’ve been training with my elder brother and the others back in the castle.]

.

Holy Mage.

Of all the people living in the Kingdom of Arceus, only quite a minimal percentage of its citizens are capable of using the holy element which belongs to top tier magic. Its superiority over other elements come as well with more powerful offensive capabilities that’s why it will be quite reliable fighting alongside with it in battles.

.

Rei has probably improved her skill from the time of her 18th birthday up to now.

She was born a bit earlier before me after all.

.

[Got it. If something happens then you have to show me the skill you have worked on.]

[Un un! You better take a closer look when the time comes!]
