CCM 052 – Yo, I’m Not Serious Yet Though


.

.

[Ugh… Ah….]

.

Things happened so fast and now Dudley had started to groan.

.

[Uwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!]

.

Then he stretched out both of his hands as he let out a scream that’s been far louder than before. Even the silver aura that’s been surrounding him since earlier has gotten bigger and more pronounced.

.

[….Haa.]

.

I narrow my eyes and keep myself on high alert from any change that might still occur.

.

–Seems like this guy Dudley has started to get serious, huh.

The vibe I am getting from him at the moment feels clearly different from the guy who was just swinging a sword so weakly before. He certainly was just fooling around since earlier.

.

[…Fufu, that’s it. Otherwise, this fight won’t be interesting at the very least.]

.

I muttered so but Dudley then –

.

[What did you say?]

.

He scowled when he heard me out.

.

[I mean, I haven’t gotten serious yet either. We can’t afford to just let the battle end in such a boring way, don’t you think?]

[You… You haven’t gotten serious…yet…?]

.

Dudley looks like he swallowed a disgusting fruit as his face darkens for a bit but he instantly changed his expression to a creepy smile instead.

.

[Hehehe…. Enough with the bullsh*t. What more can you do against this kind of power.]

[Well — to see is to believe.]

[Bah. At this point even your breath itches into my nerves…]

.

Dudley then frowns as he moves to his stance once again.

.

Then.

.

*Wooosh*

.

He kicks off the ground and rushes to me like a mad man.

His speed that practically cuts through the air is incomparable to the speed he had demonstrated from the get go.

.

[Wooooooooooaaahhh…!!!!]

.

Even the surrounding people felt the heat as they began once again to cheer.

.

And, whether fortunate or not, even I as a swordsman can’t help but feel my blood boiling. That speed, now that’s what I’ve been talking about.

.

–How exciting.

Now then, come!

.

His sword flashes in front of my eyes.

.

*Shiiing*

.

Still, I avoided it just as effortlessly.

Further, having evaded his frontal assault, there’s no way I will not strike into this opening.

.

[Guaah!!]

.

Dudley gets blown away as I can see his mouth which I’m not sure if either had vomited or salivated.

.

Things won’t end with just that quick skirmish though.

As I took a defensive stance, there he came with an instantaneous burst once again. And towards such charge, without any issues, his sword meets mine and once again deflected.

.

[Wah, wah, wahhhh – so fast…!]

[As expected of Dudley-sama…!]

[Bu-but… how can Arios keep up with that speed..?]

[More than that, doesn’t he look like he’s still taking it easy?]

.

I don’t even know what people around me say anymore. 

.

All I can do is Focus.

Towards a higher plane.

Further — far beyond that of a sword saint–!!

.

As if to respond to the deepest desire inside my heart, my skill <Cheat Code Manipulation> begins to shine.

.

————

List of currently available cheat codes:

– Attack Powers Up (Low)

– Fire Attribute Magic – All Use

– Visualization of Target’s Physical Abilities

–  Rewriting of Target’s Attack Powers (Low)

-Absorption

———–

Let’s go with Fire Attribute Magic – All Use.

Given the current situation, I think this must be the most effective ability to use.

.

[Ha….]

.

I extend my right arm forward and have my mana flow in it. I haven’t undergone any magic training but I can manipulate my mana by instinct.

.

[Hm…? Oi, You, don’t tell me—!!]

.

Dudley’s eyes widen in shock and I am not someone who’ll miss that momentary lapse.

.

–Middle level magic, Flare Zone.

Right immediately, lots of fireballs that were as big as the size of an adult man appeared and surrounded Dudley.

.

[Ha? Haa? Magic? Is this a joke!?]

.

Dudley’s still confused about what’s happening.

.

Well, can’t blame him for getting surprised.

He’ll never be able to hear from Leon either that I’m able to use magic under my arsenal.

.

[A-am I… This must be a dream, right…? That’s magic — a middle tier too…]

[That skill in magic, as well in swordsmanship… is there anyone in the royal capital who can wield those skills better than him?]

[We can’t really expect for Dudley-sama to use magic too, right…]

.

With the murmurs of the people behind me–

.

[Haa!]

.

I unleash my magic.

.

The fireballs that have been surrounding Dudley then start to move and rain toward the successor of the sword saint.

.

[Guaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!]

.

And there goes the sound of the explosion.

Fire flashing overall.

And a someone’s devastating roar.

.

Though not as powerful as an ultimate magic, that should have caused quite considerable damage. I should be able to secure the advantage with this.

.

Just to be safe, let’s activate <Visualization of Target’s Physical Abilities>.

A gauge representing his vitality then appeared in my sight.

.

Yep.

As expected, Dudley’s almost close to his limits. Seeing he still hasn’t fallen yet, that just shows how he is different compared to my previous opponents.

.

Looking at him closely, I can see his right foot preparing its move. If I manage to deflect avoid this attempt, then my victory will be certain.

.

Further, let’s activate as well <Attack Powers Up (Low)>. It might be the last seconds but putting my guard down isn’t something I can afford.

.

[Gaha…! Gaaah…!]

.

Dudley is still within the veil of dark smoke.

If I want to win this match, then it’s now or never.

.

[Aaaaaaaaaaaa!!!]

.

Sword of Origin.

First Form.

Real Godspeed Flash.

.

At the swing of my sword, Dudley’s right foot got accurately ruptured.

.

[aaa- aaa, this must be a lie…?]

.

Dudley mutters with a miserable tone as he kneels down on his knees. 

.

–The end!!

I point my sword closest it can ever be to Dudley’s head.

  1. Thanks for the 5 daily chapters Simply. Having said that may I ask how often you plan to release chapters from now on? Once again thanks for the chapter!

    1. Hi, Devin~ It will be 3 chapters per week at the minimum unless I take breaks. If so, I will release 5 (hopefully). The coffee campaign this weekend however for 3 additional chapters is not a regular thing since most often than not, I can’t go past 5 chapters, of this novel atleast, a week.

      1. Thanks for the quick reply! So far I’ve really enjoyed reading this novel, and your translations are great. Plus I enjoy reading your messages at the end of the chapters. Once again thank you for translating this novel.

  2. Thanks for the chapters! Can’t wait to read how leon fucks up next. Probably gonna out himself as cheating and assisting the dud in the fight and still getting one-sidedly molly-whopped.

  3. thanks for chap
    lol lol he used magic in the end, wait if he used that magic sword he could freeze dudly too right?
