CCM 33 – Yo, Assailants are Quite Full of Themselves Though


It was such a close call.

.

Thanks to Yuya stalling the monsters to give way for us, we made it in time to find Maeri and save her.

.

I am not certain what the robed man intends to do with her but… it’s something I don’t want to imagine.

.

Really, it’s such a relief.

The girl remains to be safe at the very least.

.

[Maeri….]

.

I return my sword back to it’s sheathe and look at the maid that I was once living with.

.

She seems awfully exhausted.

Her clothes are so disarranged and the cheerfulness of her eyes that remain in my memories has almost faded. She must have been crying earlier too as marks of tears are still visible on her cheeks.

.

She must have suffered a lot.

.

[Arios-sama… Why…]

[You see, there’s someone I’m chasing around which I believe is the culprit behind the shady things happening around. And just like that, I made it all the way here.]

[But, just now, tha-that…]

.

Towards the girl who looks like she’s witnessed an unbelievable scene, Rei with a bitter smile walks forward.

.

[Fufu. It isn’t the first time Arios has shown how cool he is though.]

[….No, no, no. That doesn’t help anything at all! Huh, you must be….]

.

Oh, Maeri is a smart girl so I expected her to hold her words from there.

Saying anything about Rei’s identity in such a place will never be a good idea after all.

.

[Just wait for a bit. I’ll help you recover.]

.

Rei said so and started to use her Holy magic.

.

A gentle ray of light envelopes Maeri and sinks to her body. For every moment the light entered her skin, her wounds started disappearing. 

.

[Rei, would it be okay if I leave Maeri to you?]

[Un. Leave her to me.]

[Bastard….!]

.

The man’s scream then came as I talked with Rei.

.

I look towards where the voice came from and found a man in a gray robe. His face is fully covered by the robe earlier but maybe because of my previous attack, his expression full of anger is now fully visible.

.

I held back with my God Speed Flash, you know. I have a lot of questions to ask towards this guy so accidentally killing him off would be troublesome.

.

While I am immersing myself in my own thoughts, the man with the gray robe screams as his eyes tremble.

.

[I heard that a pest is crawling it’s way into the hideout but… Agh. This worm even dared to interrupt my fun…! You better grit your teeth, bastard!]

.

…Man, this guy is so loud.

I just wanna get rid of him ASAP but there’s still a lot of information I have to wring from this guy. After that then there goes nothing.

.

–But then.

.

[Yareyare. So you’re in here, intruder.]

[After all the trouble we went through just to look for you.]

.

I sensed the presence of two new people coming at me from behind.

.

I glance towards their direction and see two figures of men who are wearing gray robes similar to the guy who was about to touch Maeri.

.

…These guys seem to be swordsmen too, I guess.

.

A sword hangs each on their waist as they walk towards my direction while keeping eyes on me after all. Further, they aren’t showing me any obvious opening.

.

[Ha. What an idiot. Seems like you’ve crawled your way to help that woman but… You’re just a pesky bug who’s about to fry yourself on fire. You just wasted your own life coming in here.]

.

One of the men in gray robes says so ominously. 

.

This guy is quite confident, isn’t he.

Though, I have to say they’re opponents I can’t let my guard down.

.

[A-Arios…Sama… Don’t mind me anymore so please, run away… ]

.

Maeri spoke with her voice that can’t be described to be anything but weakened. The situation starts to seem pretty bad. 

.

So I look at her and give her a smile.

.

[I am not minding you. But… It doesn’t really suit you whenever you cry.]

[Ah…]

[It’s alright. I won’t lose. We’ll definitely make it through.]

.

A mysterious skill – Cheat Code Manipulation.

Because of this skill, I lost my family and status.

But in exchange – I received something important that can’t ever easily be replaced.

.

A black grizzly, a giant orc, and packs of wolves. If what has beaten those monsters is Cheat Code Manipulation, then…!

.

[Yooow did you guys heard that!? ‘Well definitely make it through’ he said!]

[Ahahahaha… What a pitiful lad. He can’t even fathom how strong we are.]

[Let’s teach these brats from the surface a painful lesson. We’ll show you what the strong really are!]

.

Each of them then grab their swords and take their stances. Really, their stance has no gaps at all. Seems like they aren’t just all talk.

.

[A-Arios-sama… Run, please…!!]

.

Maeri is still crying even at this moment.

.

[Ha…..]

.

It’s time for me as well to ready myself for battle.

.

I sharpen all my senses, concentrate and grasp all of their movements —

.

.

Suddenly,

One of the robed men’s body shivers.

.

[Wha-what the hell is up with this presence…?]

[Don’t waver! The three of us share the honor as the renowned ‘Saviors of Arceus’! We shall never lose!]

[Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh!!!]

.

All three men start to run as one.

–but, slow.

.

[UUUUwoooooooooooooo!!!]

.

.

All three of them came at me while screaming but each of their movements against me is something that can’t be hidden.

.

A second later. There’s an attack coming to my back.

Next, a juggling sweep made it’s way from my left side.

After that, a vertical swing towards my right side.

.

Still, my sword receives all of these hits. Each time the sword clashes, a metallic ring reverberates all around the place.

.

So.

.

[Ha….]

.

Cheat Code – Activate.

Attacks Power Up (Low).

.

—Shhhhinnngg!

.

With a sway of my sword, a wind pressure emerges and throws all three of them aback. Further, the ability of the sword Levati activated as well and the feet of the three of them became frozen.

.

[Ugh…]

[Impossible…!!]

.

That being the case, these guys are now easy targets.

.

Sword of Origin.

God Speed Flash.

.

[Uuuhh – uwwaaaaaaaaaahhh!!]

.

A raging blade devours the figure of the three robed men.

    and rather than holding back shouldn’t he have maimed them instead??

    1. this is the kind of novel where the plot is trash and everything doesn’t make sense, but we’re still gonna read it because we have shit taste.
