Chapter 19 - So This Is A-Rank.....

While a large audience watching, we face each other in the center of the training field with Baldie standing between us. These guys raising an unpleasant smile at me and then the red-haired guy move one step forward.

[Hey, don’t tell me you are really going to do it? I heard your just an F-rank adventurer? It’s better to stop now, rather than getting hurt, being a coward is more preferable right?]

Red-haired guy spoke these words while looking down on me. What are you saying? I’m here because I want to do it. If you don't understand that, you must be an idiot.

[Everything had been confirmed with you before. Because the audience is waiting, just hurry and prepare yourself already] (Wazu)

We continue to move apart in accordance with the instructions. Baldie alternately looked at us and raising his big hand---

[Both sides remember that killing is prohibited!! Begin!!!] (Regan)

After lowered his big hand, Baldie moved to the rear. Following that I returned my line of sight to the front. The green-haired guy approached me while poising his spear.

[Carefully and plenty, I will carve the fear of an A-rank on your body to educate that haughty attitude of your]

Enough of that, if you have room to talk why don't you just quickly attack me. When I avoided the spear, this time red-haired guy came to cut me with his sword.


Red-haired guy clicks his tongue. Perhaps he never imagined that such attacks could be avoided by a mere F-rank adventurer. This time their attacks has been mixed with a feint but still I can easily dodged it. I can see they are getting impatient. Although they have joined forces, there were no attacks landing. In the first place it's impossible for such slow attacks to reach me. But the pincer attack still continue for a while and suddenly these two people spring back at the same time. What happened?

[My fire is a countless melody]

(TL : I will use italic style for a chant)

After the words finished, a lot of small fireball came towards me. Come to think of it, I had completely forgotten about him. I hit the empty air in the direction of the incoming fireballs. Every one of the fireballs had disappeared because of the wind pressure. On this sight, the blonde guy was stunned and red-haired guy was muttering something while glared at me.

[What did you do? Magic..... no..... is that skill?]

No, it was just a normal punch. I roughly understand their fighting style. Red-haired and green-haired guys with their respective weapons are working as vanguard. The magician blonde guy is working as rearguard. That’s typical, I have finished analyzing it-----

[It can’t be helped, let’s do it seriously!! That said, we didn’t know anything about the skill from earlier, but we can’t lose to an F-rank!! Are you ready? Zecca! Homura] (Glenn)

[I understand! Glenn!] (Zecca)

[It can’t be helped..... let’s do it] (Homura)

Oh speaking of which, I didn’t know their names. Let’s see, red-haired guy is Glenn, green-haired guy is Zecca, blonde guy is Homura..... okay, I remember their names, at least for now.
(TL : Glenn, Zecca, Homura, it's just a short time but we will forget about you!! :D)

Now, are we serious at last?
t seems finally I will be able to achieved my purpose. I provoked and challenged them to battle because there was a certain purpose.

It’s that I want to know of my own ability. It’s neccessary with the opponents from A-rank which is the upper class adventurer. I don’t have any combat skill and my status are in texts..... I want to know how far I could go. I was stronger than most monsters but I couldn’t say the same with humans. They can use magic and skills that monster can’t. In this way I can compare my strength with other people and can grasp the difference of our status value.

However, how I should put it? From the battle thus far everything seems meaningless. I felt the overwhelming difference between us. Be it magic or skills but, there are no effects to the battle. But maybe there will be something different when they are serious this time.

They surrounded me while shouting “Haaaa” to raised their morale. Hmm? I’m full of openings right now, when will you attack me?

[You will regret picking a fight with us!!] (Glenn)

Red-haired guy come at me with his sword. Although his speed is faster than before, I feel it come approaching me very slowly. I dodge it while monitoring the sword's tip movement. A spear is drawing near from behind but I change its track using my finger tip. Combination of sword and spear attacks had started, but it didn't even graze me.

[Damn it!! Why didn't my attack hit!! Even though my Swordsman skill is level 7] (Glenn)

Hee... if I’m not wrong the maximum skill level is 10, that’s pretty high to have. I continue to dodge it but just as suddenly they stopped their attack and take a distance to joined with blonde guy. They are lined in a row.

[Homura are you ready?] (Glenn)

[At any time!!] (Homura)

Oh? It seems they are about to do something. If it’s so, I also have the last thing I want to confim. It’s simple, I will deliberately received their attack to test my strength.

[My sword is bestowed with the power of flame] (Glenn)

The red-haired guy’s sword wrapped in fire. Oh is that guy a magic swordsman? How nice, it’s so cool.....

[Let’s go!!] (Glenn)

[The darkness stands before me] (Homura)

The magic is cast on red-haired guy’s command and an intense flash spreads in the vicinity. It’s so dazzling, I covered my eyes with my hand immediately. I can feel the sign of red-haired guy drawing near. I recived his horizontal-slash attack directly.  *pakkin* hmm? Just now I heard such as break sound. Setting that aside, this time green-haired’s spear approaching.

[Burn! Flame spear!!] (Zecca)

You too? I thought so, but apparently it was just a gimmick from the spear itself. The fire sprouting from a spear’s tip and wrapping me.

[Hear me, the sound of destruction] (Homura)

After blonde guy cast a magic, there was a flame explosion from my surrounding one after anotheer.

[How is that? This is the finishing move of Black Flame,

TRIPLE!!] (Glenn)

[FIRE!!] (Zekka)

[ATTACK!!] (Homura)

[LOL!!] (Sabishii)

The ground was gouged and scorched while a black smoke rised to the sky.....


I had checked my body inside the smoke. Despite received such an attack, there was not even a single scratch let alone injuries. Even I didn't feel the impact of an attack,  it's still felt hot....

[What!? My sword is broken] (Glenn)

Although I heard such words from outside a smoke, I continued to check my clothes it was neither torned or burned. When I thought about it carefully, my clothes were made from the mountain's monster. In other words the material itself are S-ranked. About those guys attack, I didn’t feel anything.

Oh well, I have confirmed my abnormal strength let’s bring it to the end.

While the smoke still surrounded us, with an ultra-speed movement I knocked three of them. Of course, since I was holding back properly they are still alive and just fainted.

After Baldie confirmed that those guys are safe from a distance, he declared my victory loudly.
