CCM 013 – Yo, What Do you Mean by Wait


[Se-seriously…]

.

I can’t just believe this.

.

Accumulated damage of different body parts, was it.

I was curious how this ability would work but I didn’t expect it would be this powerful.

.

Based on what happened just now, perhaps depleting the gauge of the giant orc’s right foot was the reason it fell down.

.

Then, isn’t this ability overpowered itself.

Being able to know the vitality of the enemy certainly brings a huge advantage but being able to see the gauge and accumulated damage of each of your enemy’s body part is just too monstrous.

.

It sure isn’t as flash compare to two of my other abilities but if I’ll be able to use if effectively, then there’s no doubt that it will be one of  my most powerful abilities.

.

[GuuguguUGguUGUGUUuuuuooo….!]

.

The giant orc is groaning as it scratches its foot. 

I don’t think it would be able to immediately get up but this is a class A monster we’re talking about.

.

I put my sword back to its sheathe as I put my left foot forward and take a stance. 

Sharpen my focus down to the very limit, and put every bit of my concentration to my breathing.

.

—Now!

Makuba Sword Style – 1st Hidden Technique

Phoenix Sword

.

I run in an instant and let myself move without any restraint cutting the giant orc’s body as I will.

.

1st strike.

2nd strike.

3rd strike.

.

I take some distance and look at the places where I hit the giant orc before I rush and make an immediate follow.

.

*bang**babababang**bang**bang**baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang*

.

A red gleam follows my sword in every swing which causes every hit to explode. The explosions come together and an image of a phoenix has formed.

.

[Waah!!! THAT’S!]

.

I can hear Kaya’s scream in astonishment. Seems like she’s been watching everything while giving her comrades potion and tending to their injuries.

.

This is one of the secret sword techniques of the Makuba’s sword style.

If it’s my father, then he’ll definitely be able to unleash a more powerful technique with a more beautiful phoenix.

This might be my current limit but with the help of Attacks Power Up (low), I’ll be able to elevate its power a bit further.

.

[Guuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!]

.

The giant orc’s scream resounds throughout the surroundings. It closed it’s one and only eye tightly as it seems it’s starting to struggle.

.

Nice. Looks like it’s doing the job.

Let’s deal as much damage as I can using magic from now then.

.

Skill <Cheat Code Manipulation> Activate, Fire Attribute Magic – All Use

.

Ultimate Magic – Prominence Burst.

Immediately, the giant orc has eaten it’s second explosion for the day. I can’t hear any screams this time but it’s the magic that defeated a black grizzly in one shot. This guarantees some degree of damage at the very least. 

.

Or perhaps a chance for us to retreat.

It’s a giant orc we’re talking about. Who knows what it will do if we keep on dilly dallying around.

.

I turn my body around without any intention of looking back and run towards Kaya and her party.

.

[It’s our chance! Let’s take this opportunity to run!]

[…..]

.

However, Kaya is just standing like a dolt without any signs of moving. The same can be said to Yuya who’s beside them.

.

[What are you doing! If we don’t run now we’ll all end up dying! Let’s take this chance to–]

[No… You see….]

.

Kaya then scratches the back of her head with a strange expression on her face.

.

[Run away is it… From what?]

[Eh?]

.

What the hell is this adventurer saying now.

.

[Can’t it be more obvious. We’re going to run away from the giant orc!]

[..Gi-giant orc, you say. It’s already literally lying dead though.]

[Huh?]

.

I turn around in surprise.

.

Beneath the dark smoke rising is the body of the giant orc lying on its back.

After all the noises and screams it had been doing earlier, it isn’t now lifting even a single finger.

.

Let’s check the gauge of the giant orc just in case… Oh, can’t see it. The gauge that represents its vitality has completely disappeared.

.

…Then, really, seriously?

.

[Err, uhm, it must be that, right.]

.

Even I am feeling a bit awkward, I have to force myself to speak the words I need to say.

.

[Everyone already made it worn out and due to everyone’s hard work… it gave me the chance to take the kill, right?]

.

[Iya iya iya iya, just what are you saying!]

.

Kaya’s rebuttal immediately comes.

  1. I got an unexpected vacation actually and wasn’t able to post on schedule. Here’s a dump for you all. Happy weekend!
