CCM 076 – Yo, I feel this will Lead to more of that not so Pleasant Stories


Around the same time.

In the estate of the Ald family.

.

[Fuuuaaaahh~~~!]

.

A man wrapped in a leather jacket yawns heavily while standing in front of the family’s gate.

The man standing on his side isn’t able to help himself but to retort seeing such appearance.

.

[Oi, don’t you dare slack off.]

[You say that but… there ain’t anyone who’ll dare to infiltrate the Ald family’s estate y’know.]

[I once thought so too but… We don’t have that kind of leeway now.]

[Oh, the matter with Arios Makuba, huh.]

[Yeah. Just how many of us got done in by that guy. Seriously — he’s the real deal.]

[Baah~ don’t really care. Arios or whatever, I beat them all the same then they ain’t matter.]

[……]

.

It is so.

The man wearing the leather coat and his companion are members of the Saviors of Arceus (SoA).

Both of them are in charge of the estate’s night security.

.

Then.

One of them suddenly turns his head in a specific direction.

.

[…Ara~. Looks like I immediately got caught. That was fast.]

[Hmp. Somebody really dared.]

.

From the direction the man is looking at, behind the shadows and the thick bushes, the A rank adventurer Kaya Rutis appeared.

She’s one of the people that was marked to be cautious against within their group.

.

[What did’ya come here for? Gotta have something to do with Arios, huh?]

[Well, something like that.]

[Ha! What an idiot. As if ye can do anything on y’er own!]

.

The man raises one of his hands as he screams at Kaya and activates his Ice magic.

.

-It’s an advanced tier Ice magic, Diamond Noah.

A wind freezing everything at absolute zero embraces Kaya from all directions in an instant. The big chunk of ice shines brightly in the middle of the darkness of the night.

.

It’s a magic that even an A rank adventurer will find hard to resist. What’s more, the man is empowered by the shadow stone which makes his magic much denser than any advanced magic of other people. 

.

That’s why for a mere A rank adventurer, the chance for one to survive against this magic is quite abysmal.

.

Or so the man had thought before this moment appeared before his eyes.

.

[…Fuh~~]

.

But Kaya’s alive.

By the time the ice dissipates, as the crystalline disperse around, Kaya stands her ground as if nothing had transpired.

.

[I say this myself but I really got stronger, didn’t I? Just what’s up with the way Arios-san trained us.]

[Ba…. Bababa bakana!!! (I-I-i-i- impossible!!!)]

.

The man full of fury stares at Kaya with bloodshot eyes and his finger shivers as she points at her before he cries out.

.

[This is just so weird! This is way too suspicious! Just who in the world can eat an advanced-tier magic and come out unschated!]

[Un, un. That’s true. I know you’re talking about me but even I have to agree.]

.

Kaya, for some reason looks at the men before her with pity on her face, as she draws out her blade and prepares herself for battle.

.

[But you see, Arios-san isn’t someone you can measure with common sense. However… don’t guys know that the best?]

[Guguugugu….!]

.

And that is true.

.

For example, during the time of the monster outbreak where a shadow stone was given to their comrades.

.

Though they’ve been hiding themselves in a small hideout, each and everyone of the members defending that base are quite high level individuals. That’s why it’s a base that required only quite a few of them to defend.

.

And what’s more, just quite recently, they have their colleague named Gegga and his men just got their bums handed to them.

.

They are enhanced by the shadow stone and should have their base abilities strengthened to five times.

Their base abilities in the first place aren’t that bad so the shadow stone should have made them quite the formidable guys.

.

–They’ve experienced it from Arios himself.

.

Someone like that can no longer be called a human.

It’s a monster. A terrifying monster hiding under a young man’s skin.

.

[Ugh, dammit. That bastard’s just unreal… Speaking of that monster, he ain’t here, huh?]

[True. Well, yeah.]

[Then this’ll be our win! Someone like ye lass won’t be able to take us down!]

[Fufufufufufu~~]

.

Hearing the man’s cries right at her, Kaya just leisurely laughs in response.

.

[I really can’t help but wonder about that? Sure Arios-san is not here but that doesn’t mean that I came alone to fight.]

[–What the?]

[Show yourself! Viin-chan!]

[I shall obey!] (Viin)

[Aagh, GaaAAaAAAHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

.

The man is so bewildered his eyes are about to pop out.

.

As that wasn’t a monster.

Nor a person.

It’s ‘something’ that suddenly appeared that his vocabulary cannot define.

.

What’s more, it appears to be intelligent as it can understand and speak language.

.

[W-w-what the hell are yaaahh!!!!!!!!]

[Fufu, I am the one who’ll deliver you to the realm of the otherworld☆] (Viin)

.

The ‘something’ that’s waving it’s crowbar like arms introduces itself as it rushes to the man.

.

[The one and most faithful familiar of Arios-sama! This loyal servant, Viin, has come at your service!]

.

Again.

That’s damned Arios once again.

.

[I… I dunno anymore….]

.

The man, at his best, can only say such.
