CCM 56 – To Become the Real Sword Saint


.

The battle is now moving towards it’s peak.

I serve as everyone’s tank by using <Absorption> while Rei and Kaya took care of our offensive.

.

…Leon was blown away by Vanitas Roar right at the middle of the fight but.. Yeah, let’s just pretend nothing had happened.

.

He’s still the sword saint after all, so no worries right there.

.

We actually lost a crucial opening because of that surprise attack you know.

So because of that, right at that instant, I deactivated my absorption and let him get the brunt of the monster’s wrath. I know for myself that what I did was pretty nasty though.

.

[Ugh…]

.

As a result, we now have the sword saint Leon plastered on the wall lying unconscious right beside Dudley.

I don’t really expect to receive any kind of help from him in this battle but I guess it’s good to say he’s already out of the count that he wasn’t even included.

.

We only have ourselves to rely on to put down this monster, the Vanitas Roar.

.

[UguaUGAUGAAAAAAH!!!!!]

.

The monster narrows its eyes as it screams full of anger.

.

It then raises itself once again and has its body clad with jet black flames and releases it to the surroundings. I activated <Absorption> right immediately and had all the flames redirected towards me. 

.

[Arios!]

.

Rei shouts my name in worry but an attack of this level won’t harm me.

I extinguish the flames one after the other using my treasured sword Levati and activate <Visualization of Target’s Physical Abilities>. 

.

Then, I shouted towards Rassen who is the closest to the most effective target.

.

[Rassen! To the left foot! Please focus on attacking it’s left foot!]

[For Arios-sama!! Waaahhh!!!]

.

Rassen then charges towards the monster as he waves his great sword to the air.

C rank adventurer he may be, nobody can scoff at the power of the greatsword plus the strength of its user that had gone quadruple.

.

[GGuuuAaahhh!!!]

.

The Vanitas Roar screams in pain and is fully enraged. Which left us another opening to seize.

.

[Did it just flinch again…?]

[It’s actually been faltering for a lot of time already but… Arios-san just seems aware of the right spot to hit for the monster to fall…]

.

I heard Yuya and Kaya’s mutterings but pay it no heed as I send directions toward the two.

.

[Both of you, to the right foot please! Thanks!]

[Ro-roger!]

[Going!]

.

The two of them then run at the same time towards the right foot of Vanitas Roar. As expected of an A and B rank adventurers, their execution was flawless.

.

*BOOOOM!!*

.

Then, with the gauge of the monster’s right foot fully depleted, it had lost its balance and started to collapse from where it stood.

.

Now’s our chance!

.

After making sure of eliminating the flames down to it’s tiniest embers, I dash my feet towards the Vanitas Roar.

.

[Arios!]

.

Right beside me is Rei.

My childhood friend who is a princess that’s always been here beside me.

.

[I’ll go with you! So–!]

[Yeah. I’ll leave it to you.]

[Un!]

.

Rei’s right arm then starts to shine in brilliance as she casts a holy magic towards the Vanitas Roar.

.

Countless streaks of lights then fall from heaven and fall toward the monster. Since my ability is only enhancing one’s physical prowess, it wouldn’t cause tremendous damage. But nonetheless, the magic prevented the Vanitas Roar to stand up and keep it kneeling to the floor.

.

[Oaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!!]

.

I concentrated every last bit of my breathing to my sword as I kept on running.

.

Aaah, I wonder what’s this.

There’s this warm feeling once again. It makes me think that the first sword saint is just right next to me ready to guide my blade.

.

–Be the real sword saint, Arios.

.

These words made it’s way directly inside my head and once again, it feels like I have reached a new higher level.

.

Sword of Origin. First Form.

Real Godspeed Flash.

.

With my power, body, and soul, everything I have I pour to my sword as it shreds the Vanitas Roar.

    It maybe nasty Arios, but your D-bag old man Leon deserve getting punched for everything he put you through😄
