CCM 22 – Yo, The Name of the Move Just Basically Says it all Tho


[Hehe, now’s ye’r only chance if yah wanna give up, kiddo.]

[It’s fine. I will fight with all I got.]

.

Now at the testing site.

.

I and the old man are facing each other.

I hold my sword as the old man raises his great sword.

We keep a reasonable distance apart from each other as we keep each other in check observing one another’s movements.

.

[…Hey, brat. What are you feeling right now?]

[Yes?]

[I’m talking ‘bout being a failskill despite being the son of the sword saint. What’s more, to be outdone by just an orphan… Gugugu gyahahahaha daaamn if It was me I’d be so humiliated I just better die!]

[I-is that so…]

.

Well, he really talks a lot even right before the fight since earlier.

To be honest, I can see a lot of flaws in his stance, but he’s probably putting a bluff for me to put my guard down. He is the strongest swordsman as Kaya had said after all.

.

But that’s just enough with the intro – let’s get this started already.

.

I lower my stance a bit and tighten my grasp to my sword.

I focused all of my senses down to every bit of movement.

Then put all of my concentration up to its very limit.

.

Right now, I can feel everything right to the very tip of my skin.

.

Ofcourse, I did not neglect to activate Attacks Power Up (Low). I am facing an opponent I can’t let my guard down afterall.

.

[Oh, my~♪」

.

I can hear Kaya murmur then whistle around the corner.

.

[Wh-what the hell are yah trying to pull brat. Come and have some taste of this!]

.

The old man is taking small steps forward.

.

[I already know that you are strong but… Please don’t hold yourself back. Please.]

.

I just learned the strongest swordsmanship there is, you know.

As to how strong I became because of it… I want to see for myself as well.

.

Against the greatest swordsman there is, then I can unleash all the swordplay how much I want.

.

[Ha! This smallfry even dares to underestimate this sword of mine!]

.

The old man’s mouth started to get twistedly ugly.

.

[Greaat….If y’er really wanna die that bad, then imma slice you to piecez!]

.

The old man spouts words before dashing madly on to me.

.

–But, it’s too slow.

.

What the heck is this.

Something seems strange.

This guy’s just as slow as a red wolf.

.

Seems like the old man really wants to hold back down to the very end, huh. But heck, it’s really just too sloppy.

.

The old man then swings his greatsword but I have enough leeway to even catch the blade.

.

*Shing*Tingting*shing*shing*

.

The sounds of blades meeting each other reverberates in the place.

.

[Ho, seem like yah got some backbone at least. Then try this, this greatest me’s strongest move <Downward Slash Attack>!]

.

Yo, the name of the move just basically says it all tho.

.

[…Uhm, senpai. I said this already but you don’t need to hold back. I have trained myself under my father’s tutelage so you can be more serious if you prefer, you know?]

[Wh-whhaat?]

[Ha!]

.

I put some force on my sword to break up the entangled blades. I want to put some distance between us and reset my stance.

.

…But.

.

[NNuuuuuuaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!]

.

Just what the heck is happening.

The old man did really put some distance between us as he flew backwards and slammed the wall with his back.

.

[…Uhm, just what are you trying to do?]

[*Keehik*,*Bu-buwaaggaa*]

.

Hey, that looks really nasty though.

.

[What’s the matter? Let’s fight seriously. If you keep this up then it won’t count as a test.]

.

It is probable that the purpose of the exam is for them to gauge my abilities.

But wouldn’t I lose my chance to showcase what I can do so if this keeps up?

.

[kukuku… Kekekeke… AHAHAHA!!]

.

The old man has now started laughing all of a sudden tho.

.

[Yah fool! It’s y’er fault for making me serious! It’s too late for regrets now, Idiott!!!]

.

I see.

He really is holding back after all this time.

At long last this fight will start to be a decent one.

.

I open my eyes slowly as I murmur in a small voice.

.

[…Well then, here I go!]

.

Sword of Origin.

-First form.

–Infinite Flashes of the Abyss

.

I kick off the ground as I run without emitting a sound. I let myself unite and be one in the air as I move without my feet touching the ground.

.

Perhaps in a few seconds, I’ll be behind the old man.

.

But as Kaya had said, this old man is the greatest swordsman. I can’t really see it but chances are he is one of the few S rank adventurers.

.

That’s why I won’t let my guard down.

I am moving at a fast pace but if I can’t grasp that old man’s movement then–

.

–It’s been one second.

And the old man didn’t move.

.

Two seconds.

…He’s still just standing firm.

I didn’t expect him to just throw away and waste the past two seconds. Perhaps he really is that confident.

.

Three seconds.

.

[Arree?]

.

The old man then said something as if he’s dumbfounded.

–Like he just noticed by now that I actually started immediately moving.

.

But that isn’t possible. The opponent is the greatest swordsman there is. I have to give the very best I have until the end.

.

Four seconds.

Arriving behind the old man’s rear, I strike with everything I have. Ofcourse, I don’t intend to stop with that.

Second hit, third hit, fourth hit…

My sword that’s been dancing in all directions without any sign of ending is accurately landing on to the back of the old man.

.

This is one of the first forms of Sword of Origin, Infinite Flashes of the Abyss.

A technique where I instantly move towards the back of the enemy and launch deadly strikes until the enemy reaches the abyss. A really frightening technique.

.

But (though I’ve been saying this repeatedly and I’m starting to feel sorry), the enemy is the greatest swordsman there is. I don’t think a sword of this caliber is enough to reach him.

.

…Or so I thought but then.

.

[Kkkaahhaa…. *gurgles his own blood SFX*]

.

Beneath my feet, the old man lies on his back full of pain and agony.


Translator’s Note/Pep Talk:

  1. Hi all! I wasn’t able to include a pep talk on the previous chapter because, errr – I was the one needing them the most this past few days hehe. My uncle just passed away. It’s already a year since the pandemic so it’s kinda surreal to actually lost someone at this point in time where vaccines are all over the place. It’s like putting our guards down because of it. As Arios had always been saying this chapter Always be careful, everyone! Stay safe!

  1. Ayy first comment (chorus of the emperor’s new clothes by panic at the disco! Plays in the background)
    Thanks for the chapter!

  2. Ayye hope things don’t go any further south for you. My great uncle(grandpa’s brother)died from covid recently as well. Not gonna hope for things to get better because realistically they won’t but hoping they atleast maintain the current level of suck is the best i can hope for.

  3. ([…Hey, brat. What are you feeling right now?]

    [Yes?] <ー I feel like it's supposed to be [I'm sorry?] as in I don't understand.)

    [Chances of me being wrong: high]

    Thanks for the chapter.

  4. MC is a bigger dumbas than the old man. He believed his bluff about being the greatest swordsman?!
