CCM 45 – Yo, What’s up With That Scream


Right at this moment, I am putting everything I have into running as fast as my feet can be.

.

Dudley Claise.

Based on what I have heard of last night, it seems he has a ‘favor’ to return to his previous servant, Maeri.

I didn’t expect for things to end up this way but… It seems that there are incessant use of violence that have been happening inside the highly known Makuba family.

.

Dammit.

That bastard Dudley… I’ll make you pay for this…!

.

I looked back behind me for a bit to check on Rei who was following me from a distance. 

If I run at my fullest, she’ll be alone and will be left with nothing but dust. Fortunately, there were no signs of monsters around us and she muttered to me ‘you can go on first’. I feel a bit bad for Rei but I have no other choice right now, I have to move as fast as I can.

.

Faster, faster—

I don’t know when but at some point, I can feel my heart’s loud beating.

A second, a step, no matter how brief, I have to make it–!!

.

I don’t know how far I had sprinted but.

Rastal village’s figure is now visible from here.

.

And inside the village, a commotion is happening.

At the center of it… There’s Dudley and a number of swordsmen. Seems like he brought quite a few of his followers huh.

.

I can see the A rank adventurer Kaya trying to mediate but Dudley and his bunch aren’t having any of it. She is standing in front of them and preventing them from going further.

.

Further — to the person who’s lying and crouching in front of Dudley.

To the person who has served for so long and had been a faithful maid of me and once my family – Maeri Robalt.

.

She must have been hit.

She’s holding on to her belly with her knees fully curled in her body.

.

[Hee, so this is where you are, Maeri.]

.

I can hear Dudley’s voice full of disdain even though I’m still quite a distance away.

.

[What an idiot. I’ve told you already, right? Compared to that good for nothing failskilled successor who can’t do sh*t — I am just so goddamn better.]

[……..No. That is not true.]

.

Even after taking a hit from the Silver Sword Saint, Maeri’s conviction remains to be unmoved.

.

[He’s a wonderful person. That day… When my life held no meaning and was useless, he was there to hold and comfort me. With the same gentle voice he has from the past and present.]

[Ah?]

[Failskill? Good for nothing? He’s not that kind of person at all.]

.

Then, Maeri stands her ground and glares face to face with Dudley.

.

[No matter how strong you become… I will never serve anyone but Arios-sama!]

[You b-b*tch…]

.

Dudley tightens both of his hands with a heinous expression on his face.

.

[Fine then. Since you dare to say things like that, I think some force is necessary for you to understand — on how great and mighty I really am…!]

.

You dare?

I won’t let you lay even just a finger on her–!

.

[Nuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

.

I can’t control it anymore and let the scream I am holding off let out of my lungs.

.

Sword of Origin – First Form.

Real Godspeed Flash

.

[What…?]

[The hell…?]

.

Seems like even his followers took notice of me but their reactions are just way too late.

.

I let my sword out of its sheath and take Dudley’s hammering fist. 

.

[Na-nani…!]

.

Dudley’s eyes widened in surprise.

.

[It’s been a while, Sword Saint’s successor. I don’t think you have anything to do in this place but — are you lost?]

[Guaaaaaaaaaaaaa!]

.

He pushes his fist down further but there’s where I decided to activate my skill.

Without further thinking ado, I choose to rewrite his attack powers.

From now on, Dudley’s attacks are ¼ of its original powers.

.

[Wh-what’s happening…? I-I can’t use my strength…?]

.

*Bang!*

If you keep your mouth agape like that, don’t blame me for giving you a one super punch with my other hand.

Ofcourse, buffed by my Increase Attack Powers Up (Small).

.

[Uggaaahh-!!]

.

What a pathetic scream for the successor of the so-called sword saint. 

.

[Wa…!?]

[Dudley-sama!?]

.

Dudley’s lackeys then start to surround his figure.

.

[AH, IT HURTS DAAAMNNN F*CKKKKKKK….!]

.

Dudley cries miserably as his lackeys help him get up.

.

[Bastard… Just as I was wondering who that was but it’s just Arios Makuba. You dare to show yourself in front of me, huh.]

.

Ignoring the delusional jerks’ words, I look at the maid and touch her cheek.

.

[Maeri… Are you alright?]

[Y-yes… Thank you very much. I ended up being helped by Arios-sama once again…]

[It’s fine. Don’t mind it. You should move a few distance away from this place.]

[I understand. I love you, Arios-sama.]

.

Maeri bows her head frantically before disappearing behind the crowd of people. I’m not sure but her cheeks look like they’re dyed red when she left.

.

*Phew* (TL: Sound of spitting…. I believe.]

.

That must have been quite unsightly for him.

.

[Ggraaaaaaaaaaahh!!]

.

Because Dudley started to scream all of a sudden.

.

[Shut up, shattap, shut the f*ck uppp!!! You f*cking failskil! I am stronger than you even in your dreams! UNDERSTAND!?]

[Dudley, you’re…]

[Even Leon-san says so! My physique and compatibility with the sword is far better than someone like you, Arios! Ha, abandoning you was the best choice he had ever made, he said!]

[….]

.

Man… That’s harsh.

That was the father I used to admire.

Not as a sword saint, but the person I respect and recognized as my own father.

.

But, I see… That’s how he was behind me, huh….

.

Dudley must have taken satisfaction with my reaction as he started to get haughty and speaks high and mighty.

.

[This is Leon-san we’re talking about. He recognizes me as a far better swordsman. Ain’t that right, guys?]

[–Excuse me, you blockhead swordsman. Would you please stop your mouth from spouting any more filthy words? Hearing your voice feels like maggots will start to fall from my earlobes.]

.

Dudley, who’s having his sweet time, was suddenly interrupted.

It was the person who just got here from following me, Rei.

.

But

It must be intentional because she’s already removed her disguise. The hat that was covering her face all this time was removed and her clear and bare face is now visible to everyone.

.

[Ah… The F*ck!?]

.

Once again for today, Dudley’s eyes have widened.

.

[Re-rererere- Reimira-sama!?]


Translator’s Note:

  1. Rei could have arrived on a later time. Gosh.
    Still, readers, if any one of us became parents, I hope we become someone our children can admire and respect. No Leon please. Thank you.
