CCM 081 – Yo, Stop Struggling


[Arios-sama… Just what was that person about…]

[Meh. I don’t know either.]

.

Em seems to remain to be taken aback but I can only shrug upon hearing her question.

.

‘I’ll remember this’… was it?

I mean, even if he doesn’t, there’s always the possibility of him coming back to haunt me over and over again. Seriously, spare me already.

.

[….]

[Hm? What’s the matter, Arios-sama?]

[Ah, no. Nothing.]

.

–I’m probably overthinking things.

Let’s cut these thoughts from here and resume the mission.

.

[Well, don’t mind that guy. Let’s go.]

.

I return my sword back to its sheath and deactivate Principle Destroyer.

At that moment, the environment that was painted in dark blue returned to its familiar image.

.

Now then.

.

There was an interruption from some weirdo but that doesn’t change what we came here to accomplish.

We should move immediately to suppress the Ald family.

The skill I just got just makes things more convenient tho.

.

–Principle Destroyer.

.

There’s a limit to the surroundings where it takes effect but thankfully, height wasn’t included. Meaning, there’s no need for us to recklessly charge from the mansion’s doors as we can just elevate directly to it’s top floor.

.

No matter how much we try to divide their force, there will always be a lot of guards that will be on high alert inside the mansion. But now, there’s no need for us to deliberately make our way and meet them.

.

[Em, can you tell which room Euphias usually stays in?]

[Uhm… It should be around there!]

.

There’s a large window in the direction where Em is pointing.

.

There’s a black curtain on it so I can’t see what’s inside but I definitely feel some creepiness about it. That should be where Euphias is… and some more people other people, huh.

.

[Yosh, we’ll head over there, Em.]

.

Em then looked stupefied after hearing what I said.

.

[EEhhh!!? There’s a lot of those SoA bunch in there you know!?]

[No worries. We’ll break through all of them.]

.

Well, let’s reduce their abilities using <Cheat Code Manipulation> to 25% just to be safe.

.

Em’s quite strong too. There’s no way she’ll be defeated by the weakened members of SoA.

.

[Then, Em, your hand please.]

[Ah… Y-yes!]

.

I take Em’s hand while she tightens her hold of mine with a blush.

.

I return the gesture and ensure that our hands are held tight.

Thereafter, I use all of my strength to kick off the ground.

.

[Kyaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! Too fast!]

.

Em continues to scream pitifully but still, the members of SoA noticed us quite late.

.

[He’s here! Arios is here!]

[Surround him! If we work together, we’ll definitely win!]

.

The members took their battle stances with resolute expressions on their faces.

.

Not to pour cold water on you guys but…

I have no intention of fighting you right here and now though.

.

Activate skill <Principle Destroyer>.

Flight.

.

I initially thought of barging into that creepy window right on the get go but thinking about it, it’s quite the risk since I have no idea what lurks behind that curtain. So let’s take a quick look at the situation first while I move up in the air.

.

I float — then, I immediately move up to the air.

.

[eeEEeH!? WAAAaaa..! WAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!]

.

At this point, Em already forgot our hands, she’s already clinging so tightly onto my waist as her screams changed from being pitiful to horrified.

.

[So high!!! Arios-sama, this is too high!!!!!!!!!!!!]

[O-oi! Don’t cling so much! T-they’re about to press on me!]

.

I won’t explicitly tell what’s going to “press” on me though. (TL: If you don’t get it, it’s her chest)

.

[B-but!!!! Arios-sama, it’s really scarryy!!]

[…Then, let’s do this. Hold on to me but don’t struggle, okay?]

.

I mean… If I get distracted by “those” and deactivate my skill by mistake, then we might end up in a disaster.

At the end, Em wraps her arms around my neck and slowly starts to calm down.

.

…The members of SoA call Em as a homunculus but… her warmth is as humane as anyone. I can’t really tell what differs her to everyone.

.

Acckk. It’s not the time for this.

.

[Oi! Where did that guy Arios go!?]

[Don’t tell me we were just hallucinating!?]

[Or maybe all of us got under the same illusion at the same time!]

[That’s possible too! Keep your guards up!]

.

…They’ve got the right attitude at least.

However, not one of them possessed that horrifying and creepy power I felt.

.

It would be troublesome if they start to look around to search for me. So I guess I’ll have to deal with this bunch atleast.

.

Activate skill, <Cheat Code Manipulation>.

Let’s use the ability, <- Fire Attribute Magic – All Use>.

.

[u-uuU-uWAAA!!!!!]

[It really wasn’t an illusion afterall…!!!]

.

A few seconds later, with the aid of an intermediate fire magic, all the members of the SoA who saw us succumb to the ground.


Translator’s Note:

  1. Yeeeeyy! We’re on a roll! Anyway, the manga of CCM has already been released and I saw translations of it until chapters 2.3! You can just search, ‘hey cheat code manga’ and results will appear.
