CCM 053 – Yo, This ain’t Funny at All


*——————————-*

Nobody inside the arena can offer any word to describe the situation but silence.

.

Even though from the get go, they’ve been raising their voices as loud as they can do.

But the same can be said to Rei and the others who are supporting me too.

Just at this moment, each and every person inside the battle arena has gone silent.

.

[…….]

.

Even Dudley Claise, successor of the sword saint, can do nothing but stare at the sword threatening in his face with his mouth agape.

.

He probably can’t believe this even in his wildest dreams.

That he, the silver sword saint, will face defeat.

Against someone who’s been known to be a failskill on top of it.

.

[I..Impossible….]

.

Dudley’s eyes wander in confusion as he struggles to stand up from his kneeling position.

.

[Don’t try. It will be quite some time for you to be able to stand.]

[F*ck this… How…]

[It’s just plain visible. In my eyes at least.]

.

The gauge next to Dudley’s foot appears to be in deep red in my vision after all. There’s no way anyone would be able to move their limbs in this state.

.

[Sh*t… this can’t be happening…]

.

And now, the successor of the sword saint, mutters these words seemingly aware of his incoming defeat.

.

[Yaaaayyy!!!]

[You did it!! Arios-san!!!!]

.

Though kind of late, Rei and Kaya’s cheers have now reached my ears.

.

[Haha, those two, really…]

.

Rei and Kaya have been causing quite a ruckus in the middle of the fight earlier just to show how much they are rooting for me and I can’t help but be happy.

.

–The duel has finally ended.

As well as mine and the Makuba family’s any form or lingering kind of attachment.

.

.

Around the same time.

.

The sword saint Leon Makuba is so stupefied his eyes are almost bursting out from their sockets in shock.

.

He might be looking so pathetic the way he stares at the stage right now but that is something he can’t be bothered with at the moment.

.

[I can’t believe it… Dudley…He lost!?]

.

As insurance, he even brought the most powerful magician he is most friendly with to help in this battle. Just for the sake of allowing Dudley to utilize all of his strengths and abilities.

.

It’s a battle between the successor of the sword saint Dudley against a failskill, Arios.

Everything should have gone smoothly according to his will.

.

But still.

.

[How… Just how…!]

[–Leon-dono. Just how many lies do you have to serve me for you to be satisfied, I wonder?]

[—!! C-crown Prince Leifa…!]

[You have said that you are certain. Dudley is to win, isn’t it.]

[Ye-yes…]

[Then ——— the fight can’t be allowed to end this way. Because if it does — you understand, right?]

[I-I- I understand…!]

.

The Crown Prince Leifa Foh Arceus.

With his bearing as the next in line to wear the crown of his country, his demeanor can’t be more domineering to Leon that his fear can’t allow himself to refuse his bidding.

.

[I-I will make sure Dudley to be the victor. Only a few minutes is all I need!]

[Umu. You better don’t make any kind of mistake.]

.

.

[Ha…]

.

I took a deep breath before returning my attention to Dudley who’s crawling beneath me.

.

It’s clear to see that he’s already given up.

There’s not a hint of resistance that can be felt from him anymore.

.

So it has ended.

This duel, and everything else.

.

With such thoughts in mind, I return my sword back to it’s sheathe.

.

[Gaaah….!?]

.

*—————-*

How did my body feel so heavy so suddenly?

Why do I feel like I’m suddenly carrying a boulder on my back that is so heavy my body can’t help but to start groveling? I can barely move with this kind of weight pulling me down.

.

–How absurd. Just what the heck’s happening.

I don’t really have anything on my back right now so just how–!?

.

*tiktaktik*

.

I can’t support the weight anymore and have fallen on my chest when the jet black jewel that I got from the Saviors’ of Arceus falls from my breast pocket. 

.

As it stopped itself from rolling further to the ground — it started to shine.

Then, just like the time when Remira poured her mana to the stone as a trial, it emitted a mysterious brilliance.

.

….Oi.

This is a big no no. Hold on.

.

Just where does this mana keep coming from?

It can’t be from Dudley who can’t even stand straight anymore. Furthermore, based on the fight earlier, this guy can’t use magic at all.

.

Then — the only possibility left is…

.

[Dudley! Now’s your chance! KILL!!!]

.

The sword saint. Leon Makuba’s scream at that precise moment reverberated.

.

[Arios can’t even lift a finger due to Dudley’s ability! It’s just the right time for Dudley to finish this!!]

.

–Seriously, looks like I hit the spot.

.

Sword Saint Leon Makuba.

For the sake of ensuring his victory, just how low can this man get on to his means…!

.

[Wh-wh-what? The battle hasn’t ended yet…?]

[Ain’t there something strange with Arios?]

[Leon-sama is acting a bit unusual but… Dudley-sama shouldn’t have that kind of ability, right? Just what is he saying all of a sudden?]

.

Even the audience can feel the strangeness of what’s currently occurring.

However, me involuntarily lying down in place, isn’t just what’s happening.

.

*Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiinnggg*

.

Perhaps due to the amount of mana the mage has been keeping on pouring around me and the black jewel, it’s brilliance bursts like I’ve never seen before.

.

“It is quite certain but by injecting a certain amount of mana into the circuit of this jewel, the magic embedded to it will activate. That is how it is for all existing magic items – at least up to that point. It’s ability to summon monsters out of nowhere is just beyond what we know as common sense.”

.

The words of the magic enhancer Remira then slips to my mind.

.

This is bad.

If this much magic power is injected to it…!

.

[Leon…! Stop right this instant! Otherwise something irreversible is bound to happen!]

[Dudley! Do it! He’s already fallen!]

.

My words don’t reach Leon at all. His hunger and desire for victory has completely narrowed his vision. 

.

[He…Hehehe… Now it won’t matter even if I can’t move my legs…]

.

And at that moment, Dudley’s repulsive voice enters my ears that felt like it came from above. I can feel the presence of a sword as well pointed at me at the same time.

.

[It’s payback time, b*tch. I’ll let you savor more than what you gave me…!]

[Just stop. This isn’t the right time for this!]

[Hehehe, keep rambling, loser—]

.

*—————————————*

In that instant.

The world has changed.

.

As if to paint the whole sky dark and dim, a humongous jet black shadow of a monster has appeared. It’s figure and limbs are like those of people with its eyes shining in deep crimson. Aside from that, nothing else can be compared against a normal person.

.

[………]

.

Though I have learned and studied quite a few about monsters, this one is something I have never known or heard before.

But there’s one thing about this monster I can be certain of.

It’s far stronger than any kind of monster that I have ever fought.

.

[eh…?]

.

And so, Dudley who’s almost at cloud nine just a moment ago, stares at the monster with his mouth wide open.

.

[W-w-what the hell is this thing!]

[GGgooooooooooAAAH!!!!]

.

In response to his inquiry, the jetblack shadow then swings its right arm towards Dudley.

.

I am quite sure that just movement alone can be deadly.

.

[FFUuhhaggggaah…]

.

Dudley flies away screaming pathetically on his way. There’s no sign of him being able to recover immediately from that one at all. His body collided with the wall and his eyes rolled back so hard his pupils can’t be seen anymore.

.

And, since Dudley’s been on top of me just earlier, it was only a few centimeters difference that spared me from getting blown away by that same right arm.

.

Dammit! I’ve warned them already..!

.

[O-o-oooi!!! What is that!!!]

[That bastard Arios was screaming something towards Leon-sama earlier but… Don’t tell me, That’s Leon-sama’s…?]

[No no no, how can that be possible…]

.

And then, even the audience’s shouts and screams started to rise one after another all over the surrounding.


Translator’s Notes:

  1. This should be release 6/5! This extra chapter is sponsored by our coffee donors, Karol G. and Nathan H.! As promised, I will translate 1 more tomorrow as we’ve received 6 cups already. Thank you to our sponsors! 4 cups left for another chapter.
  2. Remira / Remia – magic enhancer. Hmmm. The author has been inconsistent on his name before but it should be Remira. I hope I causes no confusion with Rei’s full name.

    1. I disagree. I’m more partial to the idea of him having his dominant arm’s bones shattered. But yeah that’s just me wishing those I dispise a life of suffering over the mercy of a swift death.

  1. Yo, that shitty Leon was find have his own son killed over this! He summoned a boss fight for Arios instead though. Appreciate the chance for more achievements! Idiots!
    Thanks for the chapter

  2. Arios brought the jewel, but Leon was the one charging the jewel using his magician buddy’s restraining magic. Since Arios shouted Leon’s name, the audience think Leon is the sole culprit, lol.

  3. next few chap is probably where he goimg to use Absorption.
    i know leon is piece of shit, but the crown actually piece of shit too..
    i hope Arios Absorb all their Skill, move to other kingdom and invade his country..

    1. And is the umpire bought or something? The match should have been called the moment Arios had a sword to Dudley’s throat. Dudley is playing zombie at this point.

      1. i forgot about the umpire due to anger..
        seems like it, the kingdom had fallen so low it seems, not only the the Sword saint the crown and the citizen too are Peice of Work

    2. Arios will definitely use the Absorption skill. But it’s not the type of skill you’re thinking. In fact, Spoilers. This skill reveals how mischievous Arios really is. Let’s just say, Leon gets humiliated way worse, because of this skill

  4. At this point Leon is way past any point of redemption. Is the crown prince also a not so bright character? I mean he clearly saw that DUDley in inferior to Arios and yet he still wants DUDley to win? Shouldn’t the future king be trying to curry favor with Arios since Arios could turn out to be his strongest ally?

    Thanks for the chapter:)

    1. Either that, or the crown prince is just a bit of a troll, knows Arios would win, and just decided to make Leon and Dudley struggle more for nothing before being defeated.

    2. Because if Arios wins, then the crown prince has to give in to what princess Rei demanded. Leon and the crown prince accepted the duel, because they became were overconfident that Dudley would win. They didn’t expect Arios to give Dudley a one sided beatdown.

      1. But I don’t think that the crown prince can really control his sister, as evidenced by the fact that she did manage to even register as an adventurer in her mother’s hometown.

  5. thanks for chap
    leon charged the stone so hoping that later all evidence points to him summoning too.
    wait so leon is still stronger than mc huh ,he can overpower mc with just his magic from far away.

    and lol that logic was soooo forced
