CCM 27 – Yo, this Sword is just too Dangerous Though


Night of the same day.

.

Seems like the sword is already finished.

It may seem quite fast but this is what Arturo is known for being a master blacksmith. With his skill <Swords Master – Ultimate>, he can create swords of the highest quality at unprecedented speeds.

.

[…This is.]

.

I received the sword that’s handed to my by Arturo himself.

.

Treasured Sword – Levati.

The sword as named by Arturo emanates brilliance full of majesty. The blade of the sword is as clear as ice with an azure crystal line in the center.

.

…So beautiful.

Just from the moment my hand lays on its handle, my whole body reacts as it shivers a little….

.

*Shiiiing*

.

I slash the sword on to the air and that alone seems enough to make the surrounding space tremble.

.

What’s more, just for a moment, I felt like the exact space I slashed to emanated coldness…

.

[S-so cool…]

.

I feel like Rei whispered something just now.

.

[Hmm-hmm. It suits you well, I believe.]

.

Arturo smiles in satisfaction as he takes a look at me.

.

[Oh, Arios. As you are from a generation of a family of sword saints, I am from a family known as <Swords Master – Ultimate>. Perhaps it is inevitable for our fate to meet with the blood of Makubas flowing in your veins.]

.

Oh.

That might actually be true.

.

Father had always been telling me almost everyday before that a master blacksmith will be the one who’ll make my sword once I inherit the title.

.

[However, it is unfortunate but Leon-dono has lost sight of what is truly important along the way. Blinded by fame and power, he has forgotten the things he ought to protect… ah, Ehem… My apologies. Please think of it as just an old man’s ramblings.]

[Please don’t… because I myself think the same.]

.

It is still fresh in my memories. 

My father’s fearsome expression when he realized I was not the talent he expected me to be remains vivid.

.

It  is true that my father is powerful.

But he is someone I don’t want myself to grow after.

.

[Fufu. You really indeed have wonderful eyes. You remind me of the folklore of the first ever sword saint.]

[Haha… That’s quite a scary thought you got there.]

[If you ever lay your hands on some fine materials again, do not hesitate to come over. In my name as a master swordsmith, I shall especially craft swords for you who I believe as the true sword saint.]

.

Haha.

Me, a true sword saint, he says.

The very thought itself is frightening but…I shall humbly appreciate the thought for now.

.

[Thank you so much…. Arturo-san.]

[Hmm Hmm.]

.

Arturo nods in full satisfaction and at that moment-

.

.

[Emergency! Guild master!]

.

.

The receptionist, Elisa, has fervently rushed into the room.

And it seems she pushed herself really hard to come even a second faster.

She catches her breath for a moment but the complexion of her face still remains to be red.

.

Arturo with just seeing her appearance seems to already have an idea of the reason she ran herself over.

.

[…What’s the situation?]

[It’s a mass outbreak of whitewolves! The location is around Ruure village and adventurers from the capital are being dispatched at this moment, however, the monsters’ numbers are too abnormal…!]

.

Ruure Village, huh.

It is a much smaller village compared to Rastal that in my opinion, it is more appropriate for it to be a hamlet.

.

It doesn’t even have its own adventurers guild. So if monsters swarm such a small place, then…

In terms of distance, it must be around the middle between the royal capital and Rastal. That’s probably the reason why even adventurers from the royal capital are heading to Ruure.

.

[Hm. I understand now.]

.

Arturo remains calm as he gives Elisa instructions despite the urgency of the situation.

.

[Declare an emergency quest to C rank adventurers and higher to guide and help the villagers to evacuate. We never know but perhaps this village too might succumb to danger.]

[Immediately!]

.

Elisa responds lively before turning around and leaving the room.

.

[…Well then, Arios oh child.]

.

Arturo then once again looks toward me.

.

[I am fully aware that you are still E rank but… You possess the ability to defeat a black grizzly and a giant orc. I am thinking of maybe I can perhaps leave this crisis into your hands.]

[Arturo-san….]

.

White wolves are stronger than the red wolves I fought yesterday.

If their strength is to be compared to the ranking of adventurers, it would be D. However, the greatest threat these monsters give doesn’t come from their individual strength but on their coordinated group movements. It is said that the difficulty to fight a horde of these monsters increases along with the monsters’ numbers.

.

Despite all of this — he believes in a failskill like me and entrusts the duty of exterminating these monsters.

.

[I understand. Together with this sword, I will claim the victory.]

[I, I’ll go too!]

.

Looks like Rei is fired up too.

Well, the situation right now isn’t as dangerous compared to the giant orc so perhaps it’s alright. Her Holy magic will be quite useful in the battle too.

.

[Umu. Then I shall leave it to you.]

.

Arturo then nods his head happily.

.

[Oh Arios, child. More than your father, more than anyone else before this generation — be the sole true sword saint of them all!]
