CCM 007 – Yo, I Kinda Feel I got Stronger Again

[Oh…?]

.

I can’t help but narrow my eyes.

The reason being, familiar characters start to appear once again in my field of vision.

.

.

————–

The victory in the recent battle has increased the skill’s level.

The list of cheat codes that can be used is now updated.

★ Visualization of Target’s Physical Abilities

.

————–

.

What the heck is this.

Seems like the abilities of my skill has increased again.

More importantly, I can now visualize a target’s physical ability.

.

I can somehow understand what it means but how do I use it?

.

I really have this urge to test it right away but I have to hold it for now.

If something blows up once again like what happened with Attack Powers Up (low) then it might just get too troublesome.

.

[Arios? Is something the matter?]

[Nope… Nothing much.]

.

I shook my head towards Rei as I gave her a vague answer.

.

But what if — just what if this skill will allow me to use new more abilities in the future?

.

Then this will be just too savage.

.

Because normally, there’s only one skill available for use per each person.

.

There are rare cases of people with multiple abilities but they are more of an exception. People who can use two or more skills are valued very highly by the country and are given important delegations. 

.

–That being the case, the number of abilities I can use right now are up to three.

.

But this isn’t something I can talk about in public so I better keep my mouth shut for the time being. I don’t really want to get any more unnecessary attention than this.

After all, even I don’t really understand my skill’s full capabilities. 

.

[Arios…]

.

I’m trying to lie low and keep silent all this time. I wonder if Rei knows my current dilemma.

Rei then sneaks a peek below my face with anxiousness in her eyes.

.

[Arios? Are you alright?]

[Yeah… No worries.]

.

She’s just been kind of rowdy and clumsy just recently, but how can she instantly transform into something this cute. 

.

[If the skill <Sword Saint> still bothers you… I think that is something you don’t have to worry about anymore. It’s because that orphan named Dudley appears to have a not that good of a reputation.]

[Huh? Is that really the case?]

[Un. He certainly seems to possess great strength but character wise… Well, yeah.]

.

So that’s how it is.

Everything went dark for me when I did not receive the skill ‘Sword Saint’ so I was really not in any position to pay attention to others. 

.

[…But hey, you seem awfully informed about this, Rei. Even I have no idea about these kind of stuffs you know.]

.

Did she look these things up herself?

Why though.

.

[Eh…. Th-tha-tha-that’s….]

.

Her Highness the Princess’ eyes then start to wander while her face is getting redder.

.

[………….?]

.

What now. Why are you suddenly acting so weird.

It’s kind of a shame but the lady has not been able to speak her next words.

.

[Next customer, please!]

.

The carriage shop’s staff has finally called us after all.

.

[It’s finally our turn.]

.

I then start to walk towards the counter but Rei —

.

[…Isn’t it obvious that it’s all for you.]

.

Whispered something but I’ll find out what it is later.

.

.

Meanwhile around the same time.

A commotion is taking place in the estate of the Makuba family.

.

[Oi, get and serve those foods faster! You all should know that I am the Sword Saint’s successor!!]

.

A hysterical scream can be heard all over the place demonstrating an outrageous behavior coming from the Sword Saint’s successor – Dudley Claise.

.

He is leaning his back on the soft sofa chair with his legs crossed while giving orders full of boasts.

.

[Ra-right away, Young master!]

[Shattap! If you’ve got time to answer then better make those feet move faster! Don’t even dare to forget my favorite chocolate sauce!]

.

Dudley says so as he slaps the cheek of the maid servant.

.

.

*smack!*

.

Nothing else then can be heard in the place but the sound of a slap the servant has gotten.

.

[Aa….!]

.

That is until the scream of the maid servant who grimaces in pain reverberated. 

Her name is Maeri Robalt. 

A young maid who used to get along well with Arios until recently. 

.

(Dudley-san… Just why, someone like this …!)

.

Maeri thinks so as she raises herself up.

If she stays here any longer, another slap will come to her.

.

(Just because he got a great power, he started to act in this kind of manner… Arios-sama previously had always been so gentle….)

.

On that fated day where Arios skill’s name was revealed.

.

Maeri was not able to say a word to him.

.

His grievance is something Maeri can understand fully.

.

Maeri, afterall, is someone who is known to be a failskill as well.

That’s why she knows that her words can’t really give him the comfort he needs. Rather than unnecessarily get herself involved, it will be better if he accepts it on his own or so she thought.

.

 As a result — she was not able to say even a single word to him even until he left the estate.

.

(If I only know that Arios-sama will leave the house then I should have just gone with him…!)

.

Maeri’s weeping is something for her alone and not for anyone else to see.

.

(No, it is still not too late! There’s no way Lion-sama will look or hold on to me so I better start to move and meet Arios-sama no matter what…!)
