CCM 079 – Yo, Go Back Home


“WAIT, STOP, HOL UP!”

.

We’re just about to start our infiltration and suppression when I heard a familiar voice calling me out.

-Hm..? This voice.

Don’t tell me….

.

[We met for the third time! Arios Makuba! Today’s the day I’ll beat you up!]

[Huh….!?]

.

What a surprise.

I didn’t expect even at the slightest for this to happen.

.

Standing before me is Dudley Claise.

.

He used to be an orphan adopted to be trained by my father for the sake of the family’s prestige which, at the end, he failed to do.

.

The last time I heard of them, Prince Leafa had lost hope of the son and parent duo and had them disappear.

For us to reunite in this place…

.

[Oh well, seems like you’re still doing fine.]

[Obviously! I won’t bite the dust until I settle this grudge, Arios Makuba!]

.

….Man, you can take that hype somewhere else where it can be useful instead.

.

[Sorry but  I’m kind of in the middle of something now. I’ll be happy to accommodate you anytime in the future so could you get back home for now?]

[Too bad! I won’t! I went to train specially just for this day!]

[That’s why I said I’ll take you on anytime, but in the future, not now…]

[I said no! We’ll settle this right here right now!]

.

…that selfishness hasn’t changed one bit huh.

.

[…W-who’s that person, Arios-sama?]

.

Em asks me, looking confused with the ongoing conversation. I really feel tired of all of this mess already but I still tell her.

.

[Someone I’ve had trouble with a lot of things in the past. Someone with a rotten personality, you can say?]

[Eh? Eh~~….]

[Arios! What the hell! Who’s that cutie beside yah!? What happened to Reimira-sama you piece of sh*t!!]

[…If it’s Reimira then she’s also helping on this ‘something’ we are working on right now. I won’t tell you more than that though.]

[F*ck! Why is it you’re the only one always blessed with beauties! Explode, bastard!]

.

Dudley then stomps his feet as he speaks.

.

Are you kidding? … Or maybe not.

He really looks seriously mad about it.

.

[Just what nonsense have you been talking about since earlier, seriously…]

.

I don’t really understand what triggers this person before me anymore.

.

[That’s him!]

[Over there!!]

.

More importantly, oh gosh. -.-

The members of SoA already got wind of us aren’t they.

.

There aren’t a lot of them due to the showy performance the others are performing in the front gates but still, things are already a mess.

.

Guess there’s no other choice.

Gotta wipe the floor with those bunch first…

.

I prepare myself to pull out my sword from its sheath with that though in mind when-

.

[F*ck off! We’re having a man to man here and y’ll just a bother!!]

[UwaAaA!]

[What the hell’s the deal with this guy!!]

.

Dudley started to unleash an onslaught against the coming members of SoA.

.

and looks like it’s true when he said he’s undergone some training. His skill has improved and put up quite the display against the SoA’s members.

.

…Well, there’s also the fact that these members were already wounded by the time they arrived. Probably because of the fall of the structures before.

They must have quite the handicap due to it.

.

Still, no matter how much rotten piece of garbage this guy is, he’s still the Silver Sword Saint.

His growth definitely lives up to its name.

.

[Dammit…!]

[Bastard… How could we lose to someone like this…!]

.

And lo and behold, Dudley has single handedly defeated the members of SoA.

.

[Ha…. Haaaa…. How ‘bout that!!!]

[Seriously… You’ve really done it, huh.]

.

I am quite surprised, to be honest.

Is this guy seriously obsessed with his grudge against me…? Well, seems like he’s for reals.

.

[Nooow, Arios Makuba! It’s time! Let’s begin this match!]

[Haaaaaa~~~…]

.

Seriously, this feels so bothersome.

.

But, just this time, let’s take a stance.

At the end, it feels it will be faster to settle this by force than by mouth.

.

[UUWWWAaaAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!]

.

Dudley then raises both of his hands to the air as he screams for some reason. What’s up with that? Is he cheering himself up?

.

Or so I was thinking until the silver aura surrounding him started to get more domineering.

.

[Arios! I heard of it! You’ve got an amazing ability, they said!]

[………]

[I know it’s called <Attack Powers Up (Low)>! It’s because of it that you became strong!]

[…Ha???]

[Arios! Now I Know! I realize why you became powerful!]

[………………………]

.

No no no no no, you’re a little far from the right answer though.

It’s true that I become strong because of <Attack Powers Up (Low)> but it’s just one of the abilities of my skill <Cheat Code Manipulation> though.

.

Also, your typical <Attack Powers Up (Low)> would only strengthen its user by 20% which makes it a legit failskill if you think about it.

.

[That’s why! I learned of it as well!  <Attack Powers Up (Low)>!!!]

.

Oh wow.

So people can obtain skills apart from the one they are born with, huh.

.

That’s kind of mindblowing for me.

.

(That’s… only if you exclude the powers behind the skills and abilities  in the equation though.)

.

Oh, If I remember, there have been several figures in the past as well that possessed more than one skill.

.

They’ve been granted their skill at the age of 18, but then one day, they awaken to another one they haven’t blessed upon before.

.

Nobody knows the cause or conditions behind it as of date.

.

There are a lot of researchers who dedicated themselves to unveil this mystery but to no avail.

.

But we got Dudley here as a prime example, huh.

His second skill though is just  <Attack Powers Up (Low)>, huh.

.

[Hahahahaha!! Look at me now!! I’ll have it engrave in your head this glorious image of mah self!!]

.

Dudley starts to laugh hysterically, but then-

A couple of reddish glows started to emit from the inside of my chest pocket.

.

[This is…?]

.

The Black Grizzly.

The Giant Orc.

.

I remembered these two as I look at the couple of crimson jewels that I got after defeating the said monsters.
