CCM 078 – Yo, it is Stronger than I Thought


*Rings* *Rings*

.

Alarm sounds continue to reverberate all over the surroundings.

As expected of a prestigious noble’s estate. Seems like magic tools are deployed all around to buff up it’s security.

.

*Rings* *Rings*

.

The noise that warns everyone of the presence of an intruder remains uninterrupted.

.

[Everyone… Seems like they’re doing a great job.]

.

I can’t help but praise them.

.

–A diversion and infiltration.

This is what we had planned before heading out to turn the tables against the Ald family.

.

We will have Kaya and the others fight against the guards in the estate’s gates in a flashy manner to be the center of the security’s attention and have me and Em infiltrate from the areas where the security started to get thin.

.

Kaya, Rei, and everyone else has gotten stronger.

I don’t think they’ll have any problems no matter how many SoA members attack them.

What’s more, I even sent Viin over there. They’ll definitely attract the security’s attention which makes them a perfect diversion.

.

[Intruder alert! Lesgo! Lesgo! Lesgo!]

[I heard a suspicious metallic scrap had appeared! It’s terrifyingly strong, they said!]

[Gaah… ! Now at all times when Doushi A (Comrade A) left…!]

.

As expected, the members of SOA are starting to panic. 

Their uneasiness is too obvious even as I listen to their voices outside the estate’s walls. I am keeping track of their presence and it seems quite a lot of them are heading to the front gates.

.

It might be the right time to infiltrate.

.

We’re currently on standby behind the Ald family’s estate.

The estate is surrounded by high and sturdy walls but there’s probably something more about this than what meets the eye.

.

[…There’s really defensive magic applied to these walls.]

.

And it’s far different from the defensive magic from the SoA hideout we broke through before. This difference in quality must be because of their need to defend an important sponsor.

.

[A-Arios-san… What will we do? I heard these walls are so strong no one was able to get through…]

[It doesn’t really matter. We’ll pierce our way through.]

[…eh?]

.

I mean, if I’m alone, then I can just find some random tree and jump over these walls.

But since I am with Em who isn’t really used to fighting yet, then it could be a bit dangerous.

So, whether this wall is reinforced, magic or what not, it won’t matter as long as I break it down.

.

[Mouu… That’s just impossible. It even looks like many members of the Saviors of Arceus reinforced these walls through magic.]

[True. It’s probably why these walls appear a little bit sturdy.]

.

<Cheat Code Manipulation>, activate.

.

Let’s try to apply two abilities to myself at the same time.

I’ll increase my offensive abilities first with this, <Attack Powers Up (Low)>.

Then, let’s increase it further with <Rewriting of Target’s Attack Powers (Low)> and have my powers increase by four times. 

.

*BOOM*

.

I feel a tremendous increase in my powers and I can’t help but get overwhelmed even though I know it’s coming from myself.

.

This should work.

This power should be enough to break down these walls.

.

I confirm the degree of my control of my heightened powers right immediately. Then, let’s show these walls the strongest punch that I got. 

.

*–Breaks*

*BAAANGG!!*

.

Oh, seems like that was effective.

A portion of walls that have been thoroughly reinforced with defensive magic got blasted down at the weight of my fist. The defensive magic broke and the other portions crumbled and started to fall down. 

.

[Huh…? I must be dreaming…]

.

Em is clearly dumbfounded.

.

[Really…? You’ve taken it down…? Just with your own bare hands…?]

[Yep. It isn’t that much of a big deal so don’t sweat it. ….Hm…?]

.

*BBBBaAAABBABBBAAAAANNNGGGGG!!!!*

.

Why is that rumbling sound isn’t yet done?

What the.

I look at the direction where the rumbling sound is coming from which has already gone quite far and a surprising scene is laid down before my eyes.

.

-It isn’t just the outer walls that have turned into rubble.

.

First, the structures near the walls that received quite an impact started to crumble, followed by one after another. The largest building in the estate, which is probably the mansion where Euphias Ald is staying, is unfazed as expected. However, not even a shadow remained from the smaller buildings that had fallen.

.

[Ah…ahhh… i-i-isn’t this bad..? I might have involved an innocent resident…]

.

My conscience is tingling. That would be really troubling. 

.

[No, it’s alright. Afterall, the people dwelling around this area of the estate must be members of SoA as they serve as the wall’s security and lookouts so…]

[I – I see…]

.

Goodness.

I’d really feel bad if I put someone unrelated into an accident.

.

[Mo-more importantly, Arios-san… Just what did you do for this to happen?]

[I didn’t do much. I just activated my skill and gave the wall a punch.]

[Ridiculouuuss!!!]

.

That’s quite the reaction you got.

.

I mean.

I didn’t think that it would cause so much damage, you know.

Still, it would be much easier to infiltrate Euphias Ald’s dwellings at this rate. Let’s keep pushing forward then.

.

[Anyway, let’s continue. Euphias must be inside that largest mansion around… right?]

[Yes! I think so as well!]

[Got it.]

.

And so, the operation to fully suppress the Ald family has now begun.
