CCM 025 – We Don’t Know but Perhaps You Can Make the Strongest Weapon


Arturo Wistar.

.

This seems to be the grandpa’s name.

Serving now as a guildmaster, but was also known before as the best blacksmith to ever hold the hammer. 

.

But yeah.

Seriously, I feel like we’ve met already before…

.

As I am trying to dig from the deepest parts of my memories, Arturo then started to speak to me.

.

[You. What name do you go by?]

[I’m called Arios. Arios Makuba…]

[Makuba… It is indeed you, that young one from that time…]

.

Really.

So I am right that we’ve already met already in the past.

I feel a bit sorry though since it appears he isn’t someone I can immediately recall…

.

Arturo likely sees my wavering expression as he starts to laugh bitterly before talking to me.

.

[Hohoho… It’s fine. The time when we met was already a decade ago… You are just but just a little child back then.]

[So that’s how it was… However, I can still somehow remember that time when we met.]

.

And back then, Arturo must be quite well known even in the capital as a renowned blacksmith.

.

–Any sword smithed by Arturo can’t be anything but supreme.

With such words attached to his own work, even my father Leon frequently visits him on his own initiative. Perhaps, we’ve met on one of those occasions.

.

However, one day, all traces of Arturo had disappeared. Though there arose a certain rumor that he decided to move and live by the countryside… what are the chances for that rumor to be true and this place he actually moved into, huh.

.

[I have heard of the stories as well. Oh, Arios. You did well for making it this far.]

[…….]

[That damned Leon… He was a pretty spiteful guy back then but I never dare to imagine he can stoop so low to abandon his own son. What a deplorable man.]

[Haha… I am now okay after all of what happened. It’s nothing but a story of the past already.]

.

Thankfully, I feel blessed I have met the people currently around me. 

.

Rei and Kaya.

There’s also the B rank adventurer Yuya, though we’ve got separated afterwards, he has always been kind to me.

.

It is unfortunate that I wasn’t able to be a sword saint.

However, I am starting to think that having this way of life isn’t that bad as it initially seemed.

.

[Hoho… That young one… Oh what wonderful eyes he has grown.]

.

Arturo laughs happily as he strokes his beard and once again takes a close look on to the materials I brought.

.

[How about this. You can cash this in right here and now, or, would you entrust all these materials to me and let me whip you a sword? I guarantee as well that you shall receive the finest quality of them all.]

[Eh…!?]

.

It was Kaya who voiced out in shock with her eyes wide open full of surprise.

.

[Ddd-da-the guildmaster himself will forge it!? Uhhh, how nice…]

.

Even the A rank female adventure can’t easily believe it.

But, is it really alright for the guildmaster to do this just for me?

.

[But Arturo-san, will everything be just fine?]

.

If I am not mistaken, it has already been a long time since Arturo-san forged a weapon.

And as my father has said, his absence brought the average quality of the weapons in the capital to the low side.

In fact, I have seen him several times let out sighs in disappointment for Arturo vanishing without any definite reason.

.

[Haha, it will be fine. If it is you oh young one then I am sure that you will wield your powers on to the right path.]

[The right path…]

[Umu. Well, let’s talk more about it some time later.]

.

Arturo then nods like he has thought of something before looking at us once again.

.

[Then, it will take some time for the sword to be completed. Perhaps you can spend your time somewhere else until I finish it on my end?]
