CCM 087 – Yo, That was Actually Amazing


[Arios Makuba…! How could this guy be so perceptive…!?]

.

Hearing what the guy from SOA said just made me shrug my shoulders.

.

[I don’t think you’re one to talk about someone’s abilities though. Aren’t you capable of moving just using your projection? One of the Shadow Stone’s abilities, maybe?]

[Tsk…]

.

The mysterious red stone gave me the ability Principle Destroyer.

.

Then the shadow stone must be doing the same for Saviors of Arceus (SoA).

.

The truth behind the two stones is still shrouded in mystery. If given the opportunity, I’ll ask the Goddess about it.

.

Still, there’s one thing that we can confirm at this moment.

.

[…Seems like it’s not all over yet, huh.]

.

Eupheas Ald.

Now that we’re able to get him in our hands, we can now put an end to the series of incidents that have happened.

.

Still – the reason how the SoA relates and benefits to these incidents remains a mystery.

As for this astral projection that had been lurking earlier, seems like it still has lots of energy in it.

.

[True. It seems like we can’t put our guards down yet.]

.

It was Kaya Rutis, an A rank adventurer, who responded to me.

.

[Not to mention the SoA’s executives, their top 3… We’ve searched all over the mansion but we didn’t even find a clue about them.]

[Their top 3, you say…]

[Yeah.]

.

Kaya then explained further.

.

The Saviors of Arceus’ one and sole absolute – it’s leader, Manuza Bayrens.

Their top 2, the person they call <Doushi A> (Comrade A).

And the third one is a person called Jack Iregg.

.

These three appear to be the most powerful people within SoA.

.

Ofcourse, the bases where the three of them reside remain unknown.

Obviously, this mansion doesn’t count as well as there are not even a trace after we turned over the place.

.

I also noted that Doushi A really doesn’t have a name known to anyone.

The fact that even after the guild and the kingdom launch all of its forces against them but still able to keep his name hidden speaks volumes on how tricky he is as an opponent.

.

[But seeing that person come over here, don’t you think that they might be planning to converge in this place?]

.

It was Yuuya Arzen, a B rank adventurer, who followed with his theory.

.

[A projection, is it? Sure it looks weird, but… He looks like the SoA’s top 3 – Jack Iregg.]

.

Oh, wow.

I had this idea that this guy might be a big fish in SoA seeing how he is capable of launching an astral projection but… more than that, it’s the top 3, huh.

Talk about convenient.

.

[Jack Iregg…!! It was you…!]

.

Em blurted out all of a sudden.

.

[Please tell me! What are you people planning!? How could you — why would you… make someone who can’t really be called a person or a tool like me!!!?]

[Em-chan…]

.

Hearing Em’s words, Rei and Kaya looks at her with sorrowful expressions.

.

[………..]

.

What’s ironic is that, in this place, it seems like the one who can sympathize the most with Em’s words is Viin.

.

[Hmph. I have no words for you. I just came here to clean after this mess.]

[Clean up…?]

.

I can’t help my temper starting to rise seeing how Jack was unfazed of Em’s question.

.

[Yeah. I got no reason to entertain your bothersome questions. I only came here for this estate’s master.]

.

–I see.

.

I wonder if skills and magic would be able to affect an astral projection?

Now that I think about it, the Goddess was able to stop the time and fought together with me while in that form, huh.

.

There’s only one thing left to do then.

.

…Not really sure if this will work but here it goes.

.

[Well, sorry but we still have some things to ask of him. Maybe you could let us finish before getting rid of him?]

.

I make my stance as I talk to Jack from which he scoffs at me in response.

.

[Ha, how stupid. If you think you’ll be able to get me off guard for a second time then you’re rather dumb.]

[Nah. I’ll have you lead the way back to your actual body this time.]

[…Ha?]

.

Skill Activate, Principle Destroyer.

It’s your time to shine, ability: Transfer.

.

The surroundings 5 meters around me start to get bluish and ofcourse, it includes the place where Jack’s astral projection is standing.

.

As to where I’ll be transferred, ofcourse to where the source of the astral projection is coming from. 

.

I’ll use the astral projection to serve as a medium and locate Jack’s physical body.

Heck, even I know it’s quite a longshot but there should be no harm trying this out. If this fails, well… There shouldn’t be much consequence, right?

.

Then-

.

My consciousness left me for a moment and by the time I open my eyes, I found myself standing in a rather unfamiliar place.

.

[A-Arios Makuba..!!]

.

And there he is, Jack Eregg, with his actual physical body.

  1. Yeah… Omicron has been really scary. These last few weeks me and my parents, who i live with, have been showing symptoms. We were terrified but after two different COVID tests because of two close calls, both were negative and we just turned out to have the cold. I have never been so grateful to have the cold in my life.
