CCM 019 – Yo, Just What are you Dreaming About


–Amazing.

.

I look at the tree on the far off distance that was just cut and stare down at my hands.

.

That… I cut that myself, huh.

.

I wasn’t able to acquire the skill Sword Saint.

I’m a failskill that is abandoned even by his own family.

.

Sword of Origin.

The swordsmanship created by the first sword saint and the very root of Makuba’s swordsmanship.

.

The wielder of this swordsmanship would be like a demon running across the battlefield bringing a sense of relief to his allies while striking fear towards the enemies.

.

But controlling this technique itself is proving to be difficult.

A swordsmanship that can only be used by those who have reached the peak of the way of the sword or so the legend says.

.

And that swordsmanship — has fallen right into my hands.

.

This is dangerous.

If I could do this much right from the get go then…

.

Faruas said that they’ll be entrusting their power into the next generation. 

I am not really keen on the details yet but does this mean I was chosen to receive their inheritance?

Among all the strong people who uses the Makuba sword style of this time, I was chosen as the strongest one.

.

When I open the list of usable cheat codes, I notice that the ability 《&%%%$》has disappeared.

In the end, I wasn’t able to know about it.

.

[Haha…Hahahaha….]

.

This is bad.

This is confusing. I don’t know what’s going on anymore.

.

Let’s sleep.

In times like these where nothing makes sense, the best thing to really do is sleep.

.

[Phew…. Phew…..]

.

When I got back into the house, there’s still Rei calmly breathing in her sleep. Her innocent look and very revealing outfit feels so very dangerous so let’s cover her for now with a blanket.

.

[Hmm~ hmm~…ahh~ Arios, I love you…. Ah~]

[…..]

.

She’s even making a very satisfied face.

Just what the heck is this girl dreaming about.

.

I’d just lean on the wall and let myself fall asleep as I sit.

Around that same time.

In the estate of the Makuba.

.

[Hey… So even you are quitting too?]

.

It’s Arios’ father – Lion Makuba talking with his face evident of despair.

.

[Yes… I can’t keep up with Dudley-sama anymore.]

[I see. I can increase your pay more than even before so maybe–]

[No, thank you.]

.

And with the brief refusal, the servant leaves the room.

.

[……Haaa.]

.

Now left alone, Lion heaves out a very deep sigh.

.

As famous as he is as a sword saint, people are showing such blatant and cold attitudes towards him right now.

Previously, people will show him the utmost respect with him just passing by.

But now, it feels like it’s all far away….

.

As for why, he himself knows the answer.

It’s because of his successor as the sword saint – Dudley Claise.

.

It is probable that him putting a blind eye towards his oppressive deeds lead to people’s trust on him to fall.

.

He understands that.

He really does.

.

But he is the ray of hope of the Makuba family. If the house of the Makuba loses him, their ties with the royal family will definitely weaken. Then, the tradition of the Makuba family that has been maintained from generation to generation might come to an end in his time.

.

And that is something that can never be allowed to happen.

.

–’I guess I can’t do anything but hold on for now’ (Note 1)

There will come a day that Dudley will mature and realize his own faults. I have to hold everything down until that day comes.

.

[Lion-san! Hey, Lion-san!]

.

The door into the room has suddenly opened.

.

It’s Dudley.

But something seems amiss. Looking at his eyes, tears are on the brim of falling….

.

[So it’s you, Dudley. What’s the matter?]

[Lion-san, your real son… What was his name again?]

[Hm? If I am not mistaken… I have a feeling his name was supposed to be Arios.]

[It’s really him…[

.

Dudley seems like he  has ascertained something.

.

[What’s up? Did something happen involving Arios?]

[…I, that guy, I will never forgive him no matter what.]

[Hm?]

.

I don’t really understand what happened but seeing how his right cheek has swollen, I can somehow know the reason why.

.

–It’s got to be Maeri.

.

[That b*tch to even dare to say in front of me, ‘I’ll be by Arios-sama’s side!’… I am far stronger than him but I guess she can’t really see it.]

[…That is something that can’t be helped. Because Maeri is into Arios after all this time.]

[But I can’t just accept that. Hey, Lion-san, where is Arios right now?]


Translator’s Notes:

  1. The POV has switched instantly from a third person to a first person perspective. So I put it there. I hope no one gets confused.
  2. Like our protagonists, believe that hard work will never betray you. It will definitely get rewarded. :>

  1. Thanks for the uploads.

    Maaan i hope this goes better then black eagle’s saint. Cause ngl seeing an arrogant waste of atoms go for so long without getting thier shit rocked makes me lose interest. Not saying the mc needs to be a badass edgelord (read has nagumo hajime) nust need one who when they get power lets those who fucked up know it. Preferably while embarrassing them beyond reason. And I’m not even talking about the dud in this case. I mean lion. Like dude you legit can’t even accurately remeber your son’s name? Yeah he needs a beatdown.

  2. I wanna see them fight so bad! Thanks for the chapter.
