CCM 70 – Yo, This Ability is Really Convenient


.

.

[Hiyaaaah!!!]

.

Rei’s holy magic is coming straight at me. But…

.

[Slow.]

[Yaaaah!!]

[Your trajectory is too obvious. Don’t rush your casting and keep your stance firm and steady.]

.

We’ve just finished eating our breakfast.

But me and Rei already moved in a plane located outside the village where we chose to train.

.

I don’t know if I talked about this already but this girl is supposed to be a D rank adventurer based on the registry. The same rank as me.

.

What’s more, Rei uses Holy Magic.

A flexible attribute that can adapt in any situation as it can be used for healing, offensive magic, and supportive magic. A skill that can be useful no matter how I think about it. It’s indeed a great ‘blessing’ if you ask me.

.

However, as much as her skill is a blessing, Rei’s experience and combat practice are quite lacking.

I guess there’s no really helping it since she’s a member of the royal family. It’s probably why she wasn’t able to fully utilize and master her heaven sent ability.

.

For the royalty, It isn’t necessary for them to be strong by their selves considering their status. But considering what lies ahead of us and Em’s slavery, she probably realized it herself that she can’t allow to just leave things be.

That’s why Rei asked me to train her directly. For her to get the power she needs by having me train her abilities.

.

[Uh… Arios, you’re too strong…]

[I mean, I’ve been fighting all this time, you know.]

.

I extend my hand towards Rei who’s fallen to the ground with her rear.

.

You see, the only reason I can use magic is because of <Cheat Code Manipulation>’s ability – use all fire attribute magic. That’s why I’m not really in a position where I can instruct her how to fully utilize her traits as a mage.

.

[But… I wonder. It feels like I’m getting stronger and stronger the longer we’re having this battle, Arios.]

[Haha…. Is that so.]

.

She isn’t really wrong about that though.

.

– Absorption

– Invulnerability (minimum)

– Summon Ancient Weapon (1)

★ Double Exp

—————–

.

Double Exp.

It’s the new ability I learned after beating up those members of the SoA.

.

And as its name suggests, it promotes the growth of a specified target by enriching their experience.

.

That’s why Rei, who is continuously casting off her magic, is able to increase her power and efficiency at such a fast rate.

.

But what’s more special about this ability is I can also cast it on to myself.

Meaning, it isn’t just Rei who’s getting stronger. I, myself, as well.

.

[Rei-chaaan!!]

[Good luck!!!]

[Arios-san too! Fighting!!]

.

Some time in the middle of our training, the villagers have already surrounded us and they started cheering.

Seems like they find our training quite a fun spectacle.

.

So.

.

[Arios-san… I can’t hold back any longer.]

[…You’re really coming for me after all…]

.

It’s Kaya Rutis. An A rank adventurer whom I’ve known quite recently.

.

She’s been asking me repeatedly to train her for quite some time already and while all things are happening between me and Rei during this training, she’s just in the sidelines remaining to be idle. I guess not anymore seeing how tight she is gripping the handle of her sword.

.

…But she’s an A rank adventurer, you know.

I’ve been telling her repeatedly that it would be too difficult for me to fight against her and Rei at the same time. Still, she’s been insisting ‘it’ll be fine since it’s Arios-san’. I don’t know where she gets that confidence coming from but I would appreciate it if she could just tone it down.

.

Though, I appreciate she’s been thinking highly of me.

It’s because of people like her that’s believing in me that I can push myself to aim higher and be stronger.

.

[Seeyaaaa!!!!!!!!!!]

.

Kaya then dashes as she screams along with the slash of her blade. Let’s try to receive it for now.

.

Oh. As expected of an A rank adventurer.

That’s quite a heavy blow.

.

[Teii! Yaah!!]

.

She’s picking up the pace as she continues to hit me with her sword but I manage to deflect them all.

She must be holding herself back. Right?

Sure she attacks a lot but there’s nothing in particular with her movements that I need to be really cautious about.

.

[Urryaaaaaaaa!!!!!]

.

Rei then chooses that window to unleash her holy magic but I just cancel it using fire magic of the same level. Rei’s trajectory remains to be predictable so it’s still easy for me.

.

From there, we keep ourselves busy with our training for more than an hour or so.

.

[Why… Why can’t I land even a single blow…]

[Arios-san, you’re way too strong…]

.

An hour. That’s how long Rei and Kaya lasted before they exhaustedly dropped on the ground.


Translator’s Notes:

  1. It is the day I have been freed of the curse and shackles that bound me for an amount of time I dare not say!!!! Nah, I’m just playing. Kinda.
  2. Hi! I’m sure many have noticed but I did not put any time on the teaser for this chapter. That’s because I received a notice for me to undergo a self quarantine (I’m a frontliner) and took a test. It took a week thereafter before I got the symptoms and found out I got the virus (variant edition). I did not go online while on quarantine to avoid overthinking. I hope you guys understand but I’d like to busy myself with books by then (hardcopy) and minimize being online. I mean, when I checked just now, some of my friends have already contracted the virus as well. And even some influencers/celebrities in our country had succumb to the sickness despite their capabilities to gain access with excellent medical facilities. Seeing these things while alone in a hotel room ain’t healthy. Atleast for me. I am not trying to scare you all but I would like to ask for everyone to be careful.
  3. I will work harder with the translations and ask for your good graces.loool. Gotta earn a keep to settle the debt from my own medical bills (we only got subsidies, lol). It’s good to be back! Let’s read and chill as we enjoy Arios’ story.

  1. ‘An hour. That’s how long Rei and Kaya lasted before they exhaustedly dropped on the ground.’

    I surely love out-of-context quotes.
