CCM 47 – Yo, Isn’t This Guy Too Much of a Scum


Upon the sword saint Leon’s arrival, Dudley immediately runs toward him to defend himself.

.

[Le-Leon-san! Listen to this! Everyone in this place is mocking me!]

[Dudley, calm down.]

.

The sword saint Leon speaks in such a low voice as he admonishes Dudley before he grabs the back of his head and forcefully lowers it.

.

While doing so, he bows his own head as well before speaking to Reimira.

.

[Your highness Princess Reimira. Please forgive my son as he has caused quite a commotion today. We will thoroughly discuss this matter some time later…]

.

That’s my father, alright. He just looks at things in terms of losses and benefits and no other thing will outweigh the importance of the relationship of the Makuba family towards the royalties.

.

[Hmmm.]

.

Reimira Li Arceus just continues to stare at the sword saint Leon with her arms crossed.

.

[Leon-san. Your reputation has been falling quite drastically lately, isn’t it? Now look at what your son has just done… You haven’t gotten too complacent, don’t you?]

[I have no words to say for myself. I can only ask for your highness the royal princess’ forgiveness once again.]

.

–Oh that.

Knowing him, the truth is he isn’t apologetic at all.

.

How saddening, as the person involved is related to the sword saint, he has to bow his head and apologize but I know for a fact that doesn’t really feel guilty about how things turned out at even in the slightest.

.

[You’ve really fallen far from grace, oh Leon.]

.

Then he walks towards him after saying so.

It’s the sword master – Arturo.

.

A descendant from a family that had been tied with the Makuba family providing them the best quality of swords from generation to generation.

.

[I told you before, didn’t I. If you don’t change your ways, the long history of the Makuba family will fall under your care.]

[I have no words with regard to this matter as well. As such, I can only apologize to you Arturo-dono.]

.

See?

He’s just spouting the same stuff he said to apologize to Rei. You really can’t feel any shred of sincerity from him at all.

.

[You really…!]

.

Seems like Arturo took notice of it as his empty words just enraged him.

.

[Ehem.]

.

I clear my throat first before I walk towards fathe– or should I say, Leon.

.

[By the way…  I believe the both of you came here for a reason. But to be honest, I don’t really feel like seeing any of your faces.]

.

That must have been a rude way to talk to a sword saint but it shouldn’t pose a problem. Though we are still connected by blood, we already share no bond.

.

[………]

.

Leon now raises his head and looks at me once again.

.

[Arios, huh… I have heard of your achievements against the Savrios’ of Arceus. As someone who had been a part of your past, I can’t be happier for you.]

[Well, yeah thanks.]

[You’ve been surrounded by plenty of B rank adventurers from what I have heard, correct? It seems you have grown to the point not to burden your seniors.]

[…….]

.

I’m not sure if he is doubtful or he just finds the things that have happened unbelievable.

.

Seems like he doesn’t see my deed of capturing the hideout of Saviors’ of Arceus in a good light.

.

[Wrong!]

.

I have to take a look towards the direction where that objection came from but it really is that little girl from before.

.

[Arios-san was so cool when he helped everyone back then most by himself! He’s the first one who came to us to help!]

[What did you say…?]

.

Leon hearing those words can’t help but raise his eyebrow.

That subtle movement was pretty sharp.

.

[Wait, Arios. You, perhaps you have…]

[You got any problem?]

[No… Nevermind. It’s just something akin to absurdity.]

.

Seems like he’s come to terms about it himself.

I don’t really know what he is pertaining to though.

.

[Anyway, could the both of you just leave already? I just really can’t bear hearing you talk anymore.]

[…Looks like that feeble man has now learned how to bark.]

.

Leon’s mouth shows a sneer as he reaches into his breast pocket to take out a piece of paper.

.

[It is a notice from his highness Leifa. He plans to have the Battle Arena be a place for Dudley and you, Arios, to partake on a duel. It would be my pleasure for you to accept this proposal.]

[What the…]

.

A duel against Dudley, he said.

Not to mention in the Battle Arena back in the Royal Capital, he said. 

It’s a place where different kinds of events are being held where there are enough seats to accommodate ten thousand people at the very least.

.

…Oh, I see, so that’s what this event is supposed to be.

.

We’re talking about Leon here whose face is mostly his priority.

Compared to Dudley who’s notoriety has spread already, I, on the other hand, suppressed a hideout of Saviors’ of Arceus.

That must have been a slap on the face towards the honorous escorts of the Royal family.

.

….So, to redeem himself from such shame, he wants me to be pummeled in front of the eyes of many.

.

[………..]

.

Before I know it, my fists are tightly closed and are already trembling.

…This was my father that I had always loved, you know.

However, it seems like I was never worthy of his affection.

.

Or maybe, he wants my defeat to serve as a new foundation for the Makuba family… Still.

.

[Then be it.]

.

I took a deep breath before I gave my answer decisively.

.

[I accept this duel.]

.

Not as a son of the sword saint, but in my honor as a swordsman.

And for me to be able to completely cut off my ties with the family, I cannot back down from this battle.

.

[Fufu… I see.]

.

It was only for a brief moment, but I saw Leon’s disgusting smirk.

Really, this is just how you really are, huh.

.

[I hope you aren’t misunderstanding things though, Leon-san?]

.

Rei moves beside me and takes a hold of my arm before staring at Leon’s eyes.

.

[Arios will not lose. Even against that ‘Silver Sword Saint’ as the opponent!]

[If that’s all then just leave already, you imbeciles.]

.

With Arturo’s urging, that is akin to expelling their existence in this village, Leon and his entourage leave the village.


Translator’s Notes:

  1. Me: reads title
    Me: reads the chapter:
    Me again: Reads the title — oh, I know right.
  2. Arios: Talks rude to his ex father
    Leon: Then die for my face
    Arios: That Hurts – Huhu

    …Prepare your own heart before you attempt to clench others hearts, okay? Arios is soooo young. It’s okay. You can slap Leon’s face in such a very big stage. Hahahahahaha
  3. I’m not into lolis – but you have to agree with me cause we know who is the best girl already. Tsk. Hahahaha JK.

  1. The princess and Arios should have been more rude towards Leon. Maybe thrown a few insults his way.

  2. they should just involve the king and let the Makuba house dissolve if they lose in the duel

  3. I have a feeling that they will try to have it be a duel over life and death but in the last second Leon and/or his backer save the pos or the mc just spares his pathetic life
