CCM 97 – Yo, Seems Like I’m About to Get Stronger Again Though


The ruckus brought by the army finally ends.

.

King Organt did not let his eyes leave the fleeting army’s silhouette until they can no longer be seen.

.

[Yare, yare. That’s case closed for now, I believe.] (Organt)

[Y-your highness…!] (Villager 1)

[I – it really is the founding king…!] (Villager 2)

.

The villagers, recognizing the founding king’s majesty, cry and kneel in reverence of him.

.

Looking at everyone’s reaction to his presence, the founding king however reveals a bitter smile on his face.

.

[There’s no need for everyone to be so formal. I might have acted that way earlier but it was due to the circumstance and I am effectively retired. You can talk to me as normal.] (Organt)

[N-normal, you say…] (Villager 3)

[That’s just unthinkable, your highness…] (Villager 4)

.

I know, right?

That man even said we’re best friends earlier, you know?

.

[Fufufu, that’s not really plausible, it seems.] (Faruas)

.

Faruas seeing the complicated expression of the people around chuckles before responding to the king.

.

[The king’s deeds might have passed down to the descendants as miracles when in fact you’re just an erotic old man. Well, no one comes close to you as a sweet talker though.] (Faruas)

[Haa. This is what I’ve been talking about. It’s because you have a loose mouth that you’ve just graduated from your virginity by thirty, Faruas.] (Organt)

[You wanna fight, huh? King or whatever.] (Faruas)

[Hohoho, that’s flowers to my ears, sword saint.] (Organt)

[Ha, hahaha…] (Arios)

.

P – please stop. I can only force myself to laugh.

.

I’m losing my strength just listening to the both of you.

Still, I didn’t think it would be easy to get along with both of them… but, at least they’re not uncomfortable people to hang out with.

.

[M – my apologies, but we can’t understand what’s going on anymore…] (Rei)

.

Rei’s eyes keep on jumping back and forth from all of the directions in confusion of what had just transpired.

.

[I – in the first place, how can the both of you possibly be in here…? You aren’t just illusions, no?] (Rei)

[Umu? Oh, listen here, my dear descendant.] (Organt)

.

Organt then laughs mischievously before looking at my direction.

.

[It’s all due to Faruas’ descendant – the miraculous work of the skill of Arios Makuba. There’s no other explanation about it.]

[Arios’ skill…?]

[Yes. Arios’ <Cheat Code Manipulation> is the power of the Goddess herself granted upon him. As such, he can call us as astral projections for a period of time.]

.

Oh, is that how my power works..?

So it’s originally one of the powers of the Goddess… No wonder it works differently compared to ‘Sword Saint’ skills.

.

[WOooooAAhhh!!!!!!!] (Mobs)

.

Right immediately, some people from the surroundings screamed. 

.

[Arios’ power is really from the divine heavens!]

[That’s why he’s so strong!]

[If it’s Arios-san, then I can understand!]

.

Oi, how can that explanation be enough for you all.

.

[E-ehheem!!*] (Arios)

.

I fake a cough to divert people’s attention from that topic any further and pass the ball this time to my ancestor.

.

[Uhm, Faruas-san, we’re able to avoid the army’s threats for the meantime but… there’s gotta be more of it, right?] (Arios)

[Oh, yeah. That’s right.] (Faruas)

.

Faruas crossed his arms as he took a moment to think.

.

[We have one week. We have to beat the crap out of SoA in that time period but… it won’t be that easy.] (Faruas)

[Yes… It is as you say.] (Arios)

.

The headquarters of the SoA is inside the royal castle itself.

At the very least, we need to look at the crown prince together with the 19th division of the army as enemies.

As such, we need to tread cautiously. Otherwise, the crown prince, with his influence and authority, can turn the tables around us easily.

.

[…Well, there’s no need to trouble yourselves regarding the palace.] (Organt)

.

Organt then turns to the second princess, Reimira, with a playful smile.

.

[We have something to talk about later, my dear descendant. Something that even Leafa will know nothing about.] (Organt)

[O-oh, just for me to know, is it…?] (Rei)

[Yes. Leafa doesn’t deserve to inherit the throne that I have built and founded. I want you to take the seat as this kingdom’s next king.] (Organt)

[EeEEhH!!!!!!!!!!] (Rei)

.

Now that’s a huge bomb.

Can’t blame the second princess for showing everyone how big her eyes could be in shock.

.

[Take it slow, my child. There’s no need for you to rush and decide. Take your time and tell me how you like to move forward.] (Organt)

[Y-yes! Thank you so much!] (Rei)

.

But on this side, Faruas beside me takes a glance at my direction and speaks.

.

[Arios, I want you to succeed my swordsmanship, the sword of origin. I hope I can ask this of you.] (Faruas)

[….!] (Arios)

.

I’ll be guided personally by the very first sword saint.

Having this one and a lifetime miraculous chance to be his disciple, my body can’t help itself but tremble.

.

[Please, it would be my honor…!]

[Hmn. You’re the only one who can embody what a true sword saint is. This generation… I shall leave it to your hands.]

.


Translator’s Note:

  1. I wasn’t able to post last week as I got hooked up with a game. Huhu. Anyone who plays Pokemon? That Dynamax Adventures can be frustrating if you don’t have friends to play with! Loooooool.
  2. Remember, friends, inheritance gives fortune and ‘responsibility’ most of the time. IDK about most but for Asians, traditions are passed down from generation to generation. So in our cases, our inheritance are actually mostly responsibilities then some fortune if we’re lucky. This ain’t bad I think. In fact I think it’s beautiful. People’s lives may not last a long time but their legacies continue on with their blood and descendants and I think that’s so inspiring and romantic. That’s how clans in particular are being made and built. A history woven by more than one lifetime.
