Shinka no Mi Chapter 109

2/3

The Heroes vs Seiichi

I——Hiiragi Seiichi, had been in uneventful days since the day I returned from the Netherworld.

Even now, what I was seeing before me was the sight of Beatrice-san personally tutoring each student according to the papers she tailored for each individual, teaching the smart students and the not-so-bright ones, like Agnos, how to conquer the upcoming exam.

Shame of me to say this, but I could do nothing if it came to honest studying, so all I could do was observe from the sideline. I’m sorry for my incompetence.

By the way, my Parents’ group had departed for Terveil a while ago.

I was thinking that they could just teleport there, since they had the Treasure Box who owned a Transfer Magic set with them, but apparently, they wanted to take their time and enjoy the scenery.

Originally, in this world which was obviously different from our homeland Japan, a light travel wouldn’t be as much “light” as it sounded, with the dangers lurking in every corner. However, pride is still, pride.

I mean, not only do they have a Hero and the First Demon King with them,  they even got the Heroes’ mentor travelling with them, you know? Name one person who can possibly beat this group, if you can.

In addition, it seemed like my parents were anticipating this travel with delight, they even said this before we parted.

『Makoto-san! It’s been a while since we had a trip! Let’s do some Food Tourism!』 

『You’re right. Also, if we did get back to Earth, we’d have some hot topic to talk about from this world, don’t you think?』 

『Mou, let’s just enjoy the trip, okay? Ah, Seiichi. Do you have a camera with you?』 

I really couldn’t be more impressed by my parents who enjoyed their time in another world. No, really, they’re superb.

Anyway, it was disheartening to be parted with them, be it for a short while or not.

However, things had changed… now, I could meet them whenever I wanted to.

It was normal and obvious, but it was more than anything.

I wasn’t that worried about their trip, but I kept recalling my last conversation with Zeanos.

『Seiichi-dono. Let me thank you once again. Thank you very much.』 

『…No, I should be the one who’s thanking here. Thank you.』 

『…Seiichi-dono. Well, I wouldn’t worry if it’s you, Seiichi-dono, but… let me give you a warning. ——Be wary of the Kaizer Empire.』 

『Eh?』 

『It would be great if I was just being too overcautious, but… In case my deduction are correct, then I would say that the current Emperor of the Kaizer Empire is a dangerous man.』 

『What do you mean…?』  

『…As I have no evidence to support it, I can’t say much. However, please note what I said.』 

In the end, I wasn’t told anything substantial, but I gained the insight that the Kaizer Empire would be more of a hassle than I thought.

While I was uncharacteristically thinking of hard things, I heard Agnos rising his voice.

「How ‘bout this!?」 

「…Well, your score did get better from before, but why does the 『GUTS』 still appear in the answer sheets?」  

「That ‘coz everything’ll be good with 『Guts』in it!」 

「There’s no way that’s true!」  

Apparently, Agnos’ mock exam result was getting better than before, but he was like usual, trying to solve everything with 『guts.』 

Helen, looking at Agnos, held her head in agony.

「You were taught this much, and yet why did you still answer everything with the word 『Guts』… Are you perhaps an idiot? Or am I the idiot one here, sparing my time for an idiot like you…? 」 

「Aint’ that way too harsh!?」 

「And it’s the fact, isn’t it? Or rather, Irene, are you okay not studying at all?」 

Agnos was dumbfounded, for he got completely side-casted so casually.

Irene, who was inquired by Helen, then swept her hair gracefully then answered with a smile plastered on her face.

「That much is obvious. For this perfect and unparalleled me, there is no blindspot in regard of academic strength.」 

「Any part you’re having hard time with?」 

「None of such thing. If you’re oh so persistent to know, maybe perhaps the fact that I find it hard to write a perfectly balanced handwriting?」 

「That’s not even a part of the study, is it…」  

Exposed to Irene’s overtly abnormal response, Helen once again held her head.

「Ano~ Helen-chan~. What do you think about mine~?」 

「Nn? Let me see… Un, Rachel, you’re getting better each time you’re doing it.」   

「I am~? Yeaay~!」 

Looking at Rachel with her fluffy smile, Helen too broke into a wide smile.

「Hey hey! What about me, what about me!?」 

Next to give her answer sheet was Flora, and after Helen took a look at it….

「Yeah, normal.」 

「What do you mean normal!? It hurts, you know!?」 

「No, I’m just saying you’re normally getting better. It’s not like you’re exponentially getting better, you’re just normally growing.」  

「it’s weird… I should’ve been happy that my score is getting better, but being told as Normal doesn’t make me happy at all..!」 

Oh, Flora. Being normal is the best, you know. Why don’t you first experience a visit to the Guild Headquarter in Terveil! You’ll see how great it is to be normal!

「I’m done!」 

Recalling the sight of those perverts in the Guild Headquarters, my eyes were looking into the long distance. It was when Saria suddenly raised her voice.

What a thing, as it turned out, Saria had been studying too, using the exam sheet that was especially tailored for her.

In regard of reading and writing, she was already good at it ever since she read Abel’s diary in the 【Forest of Endless Love and Sorrow】.  …It was a good thing Abel doesn’t know Saria and I have been reading his diary.

「…You’re good, Saria-san. It’s all correct.」  

「Really!? Seiichi! Look, look~!」 

「Ou, aren’t you awesome!」 

After having Helen checked her answer, Saria showed me her paper with a smile that reached her ears.

The aura of 『Praise me!』she exerted was felt in obvious manner, even if she didn’t say anything, so I patted her head with a smile on me. 

「Grrrr…!」  

Rurune was studying too, with the paper that was also especially tailored for her, but in contrast with Saria, she was glaring a hole into it.

「I don’t understand… I don’t understand a bit… why is this thing making me choose which one is the 『Medicinal Herb』…! Aren’t they all the same once they get into your stomach!」 

「…Glutton, you stupid?」 

「Wha, what did you say!?」 

Hearing Rurune’s absurd remark, Olga-chan softly said something under her breath. No, she’s not wrong though.

In addition, on Rurune’s paper, while the other was indeed a Medicine Herb, the other one was clearly a poisonous mushroom. There’s no way they’re anything similar. You eat that one and you’ll die on the spot.

In the midst of these progressing study, there were students who really had no change in particular.

「Blued, I assume you’re doing fine?」 

「Hmph… I’m not the same as a certain musclehead, after all.」 

「I can hear that, you shit!」 

「Nn? I’m just saying musclehead. Not a word of it is addressed to you, is it not?」 

「Ah, what, so I just misunderstood it~」 

「Well, it is you that I’m talking about.」 

「I’ll fucking kill you!」  

You two are chummy as usual, huh. Oi.

Anyway, Blued didn’t need any additional tutoring, all he needed to do was keeping his score as high as it was. The same could be said for Bead.

The only problem was, if I had to say, Leon. His answer sheet was filled with apologies like usual. Not only Beatrice-san and I, even Helen had gave up on his case and put her hands away.

——I have no clue how other classes were faring, but our class was steadily advancing with the Exam in mind.

◆◇◆

A certain day after several days of studying with Helen as our core student.

When I was heading towards the classroom as usual, I noticed that the class was a lot more noisy than normal.

「What’s happening?」 

「…There are more people, in the class.」 

「Nn? Now you said it…」 

Olga-chan pointed so after she stuck her neck out to the door. After I checked it with the skill 『World’s Eye』, I could tell there were a lot more people inside the classroom than the whole members of Class F.  『Life Force』 sense that Zeanos taught me in Netherworld also showed the same result, that there were more people than usual.

For now, we wouldn’t know what was happening until we entered, so I along with Olga stepped into the classroom.

When I did so, I saw Agnos and other male students were acting as if protecting the girls, and they were facing a certain group of people.

「And. I. Told. You… Don’t make me repeat myself.」 

「Huuh!? That’s my words you fucking shits!」  

「Ha? Oi cunts, who do you think you’re talking to?」 

The group of people they were facing was… to my surprise, the heroes from my school.

Also, for some reason, the only ones present were the male heroes.

「We’re the Heroes, you know? We’re here to save you lots from the Demon King. You sure are looking down at us, knowing who we are.」 

「See if I care, you shit-for-brains! Don’t ya think you can get away with anything, just coz your shitty Hero title!」 

「That would be you lot, don’t have any idea of your standings? You sure talk big for some small fries who cheated during the In-School Tournament. You think bastards like you have any chance against us Heroes?」 

I could tell this was one real stormy atmosphere, but I didn’t see any reason why this happened at all. Not even the reason what are these Heroes doing here. …Though I guess Kannazuki-senpai would come charging here without reason.

In addition, it was unfortunate that both Beatrice-san and Al weren’t here, since they were taking the role of a teacher.

Either way, I can’t believe they’re thinking our feat during the In-School Tournament as a cheat… 

Indeed, I had made them able to use magic, and that very act would fall in the gray zone. However, Agnos and his classmates didn’t even use Magic to begin with. It had nothing to do with my power. It was purely their strength.

For now, I’d walk towards Agnos.

「What’s with the fuss?」 

「A, Aniki!」 

「You…!」 

Walking right in between both side as to part them, Agnos’ face started to gleam while the Heroes’ frowned.

Placing my gaze on the Heroes’ group, I could recognize Daiki, Kobayashi, Aoyama, and the lot who used to bully me back then. Really, what are they doing here?

In the past, these faces would make me shrunk in fear, but after I went against them during Saria and the girls’ case, I only felt nothing.

I guessed that Aoyama and his lot remembered me, their gaze had been nothing short of a glare.

I paid no mind to these gazes and asked them.

「This is the Class F’s classroom… What business do the Heroes have with us?」 

「————Nothing much, we only have one little request, you see?」  

The one to answer my question wasn’t one of the Kobayashi’s group, but someone behind the three.

Looking carefully into him, I recognized him as one of the Idol Group back on Earth… Kisaragi Masaya senpai.

I didn’t know him personally, but Kisaragi-senpai was the direct opposite of me, a great person who, truthfully speaking, had no shortcomings.

Kisaragi-senpai had a neat smile sitting on his face, but for a reason or another, I could feel something wicked behind that smile.

Whilst I was pondering so, still with the smile, Kisaragi-senpai continued.

「Nothing much, we only asked these girls to be ours.」 

「…Huh?」 

As I couldn’t understand the meaning behind his words, an exclamation escaped my mouth.

When it did, next to opened their mouth Tougou Rentou senpai and Ooyama Tsuyoshi senpai, the other members of the same Idol Group.

「No, why do you look so surprised? We told you to hand these girls over to us.」 

「If you didn’t want be hurt, just obediently hand them to us, you hear?」 

For some reason, Ooyama-senpai punched his hand with a grin plastered on his face.

And as if to be on the same page with him, Aoyama’s gang was grinning with dirty intention.

Looking at these Heroes, Blued who was the second prince of the Kaizer Empire, the nation who summoned them, opened his mouth.

「I have nothing to say that bastards like you lot are the heroes. But don’t you even dare to think that this kind of despotism will go away without notice.」 

The Heroes were told thus by Blued, but after a period of aligning their faces, the Heroes started to laughed their bowel.

「HAHAHAHA!! You sure said something funny. You think I don’t know? You’re the Empire’s second prince, aren’t you? You’ve got a commoner’s blood running in you, don’t you!?」 

「Not only you’re a royal with mudblood, you’re just another dropout who has no power.」 

No, you guys are just commoners too, okay? At least, there were no royals or anything back when we were in High School, weren’t it?

Even Kannazuki-senpai who was the princess of a huge conglomerate wasn’t a royal.

Why are you mocking others, when you yourself is just another commoner? It’s too stupid I couldn’t even say anything.

As I was being speechless listening to their bull, Kisaragi-senpai looked down at me then spoke.

「Anyway, what I’m getting at is that you dropouts can be of use to us Heroes. You males will be our gopher, while the females will service us. …In particular, I’m interested in you. You have the honor of serving me.」 

「Eh? Me?」 

At the end of Kisaragi-senpai’s finger was Saria.

「Indeed. For you lot who have no future, wouldn’t it be an honor to serve us Heroes? It was lucky that the girls in the Class F are pleasant to the eye, though that’s the only redeeming quality. We will give you lots of attention.」 

「No!」 

Saria immediately replied with a smile.

Kisaragi-senpai’s smile was stiffen by it.

「Listen… Do you think lowly dropouts like you have any voice in this? To top it, you’ll have the honor to serve this me, you know? And you’re——」 

「Nope!」 

「……」

For the second time in a row, Saria said so with a smile.

Upon receiving it, Kisaragi-senpai’s smile started to crumble.

「…Even though we’ve been trying to be humble…」 

Eh, you call that being humble!? THAT!?

「I don’t get it… What makes you so persistent…」 

「It’s because I love Seiichi so much!」 

「Huh?」 

Hearing Saria’s words, the Heroes were showing questionable expressions. By the way, mine was red with blush. I mean, it’s embarrassing to hear.

I thought they’d figure it was me since my name was mentioned, but it seemed like, to them, I wasn’t someone worth to be remembered. They didn’t notice it was the same Seiichi.

For a moment, smile was absent from Kisaragi-senpai’s face, but it soon returned with a black intention behind it.

「I see, I see… So you’re saying you like this Seiichi fellow?」 

「Un!」 

「That’s a shame. This bastard doesn’t have a chance against us, you know? Comparatively, we’re way better. Not only we’re heroes, we’re also Idols.」 

「What is Aydolls?」 

Kisaragi-senpai was trying to sell himself high, but Saria instead took interest in something else.

Instead of Kisaragi-senpai whose smile started to twitch, Tougou-senpai spoke to Saria.

「Idols are people like us. People who look good and are competent. And even among these idols, we’re standing on the top.」 

They sure said that in the face of Blued, who’s clearly above them on that front. In addition, top class they said?

Back on Earth, that might be true. But having seen Blued and that Robert kid from Class S, one could clearly tell the difference in class. What is it again, their overflowing elegance? Of course, that included their look.

Having received Tougou-senpai’s explanation, Saria smiled innocently as though she finally got it.

「That means Seiichi’s the bestest best!」 

「………Huh?」 

Never to expect to get that response, the heroes were once again dumbfounded. No, well, me included.

Not even heeding to this atmosphere, Saria’s smile was just as strong.

「It’s because Seiichi is the coolest and the strongest! Isn’t that right, Seiichi!」 

「Ah, and you’re passing the hot ball to me now!?」 

I, who didn’t think will be having to bite the bullet now of all time, could only voice out my shock.

When I did so, Kisaragi-senpai and his groups finally realized that the Seiichi Saria had been mentioning was indeed me, and their glare couldn’t be less of any dagger.

「…So you’re Seiichi?」 

「Eh? Ah, yeah.」 

With his gaze rudely licking me all over, Kisaragi-senpai snorted.

「Hah… What a dirty robe…. Also, you must be so hideous that you bothered to hide your face. Hahahaha!」 

Following Kisaragi-senpai, the other heroes also started to laugh.

…Cliff-sensei, the Class S’ teacher, also laughed when he looked at my equipment, but they sure do laugh at it. Even though it has such a broken stat. Is that what so funny?


Since my 『Clairvoyance』 skill doesn’t show any response, it seems like nobody used 『Appraisal』 on it, but… why they don’t? Did they judge they have no need to?

While my mind was wandering along those lines, I suddenly realized Saria’s hand was reaching my hood.

「That’s not true! Seiichi is cool I tell you!」 

「Eh? Saria?」 

『……』

As it was completely an easygoing action of Saria, and due to the fact I had lower my guard, Saria swept my hood off my face.

That moment, I could see their faces stiffen into stone.

And that was, if not short of, a wonderful sight.

Then, Kisaragi-senpai with his twitching smile and sweat that kept running voiced out his reason.

「A, at least… n, not… not hideous… per se…?」 

「H, hmph… Hoo… 」 

「H, h-hhheeeh… H, hhheheheh he looks… a bit more proper… than expected, is all…」  

The ones who showed that reaction weren’t Kisaragi-senpai’s group only, but also Kobayashi’s.

Feasting upon their riddled faces, Agnos started to speak out.

「How is it! Isn’t my Aniki just the best!」 

「W, well? L, let’s put aside his looks… C, competence! Right, competence!! We as Heroes and Idols have our exceeding competence. Compared to us, what can he do? Huh!?」 

I understand what they mean by the Heroes’ competence, but Idols’? What are they supposed to be? Singing? Dancing?

Again, I was lost in useless thoughts when Kisaragi-senpai’s words revitalized the others enough to open their mouth.

「Th, that’s right! I bet you got nothing you can do!」 

「I bet you were cheating during the tournament back then! We’re way stronger than you are, both in magic and in swordplay!」 

「Hora! Get out of our face if you don’t want to get hurt!」 

Agnos and his peers were frowning when they were exposed to these unpleasant barks.

However, what I really worry about was something completely diffrent.

…No, really, how can you be feeling so domineer about it?

They had the right to be proud of their Idols status. They might have put their effort behind it, or they might not, none of it I did understand.

But, if you think about it again, so what if they become a Hero?

Let’s put aside whether the Demon Lord is really a bad guy or not, or is it egoistic to be prideful for being chosen as the Heroes, isn’t it weird to be so domineering about it? Or am I the odd one?

My neck was twisted as I was thinking so. Then, Saria, again, declared thus with still with her smile.

「You got it wrong! Seiichi is stronger!」 

I was honestly happy when Saria said so, but same couldn’t be said for Kisaragi-senpai and his goons.

Their faces were twisted for a moment, but soon turned into a dark, nasty grin.

「…Come to think of it, you sure fucking looking down at us back then in the tournament.」 

「Looking down?」  

「Oh, you don’t know? We’re the only ones who are allowed to be strong. And yet… you…!」 

Eeeeh~? They sure got off with the most ridiculous reason.

「…Well, fine… If you’re saying that your strength is above ours… why don’t we see that now!? 」 

「!! Aniki, watch out!」  

Suddenly, Kisaragi-senpai emerged flame from both of his hands then launched them at me.

Agnos was fast enough to react to it, but I was just stood silent and watched it enveloped.

A moment after, those flame magic were halted in front of me, and just hung there on the air.

「Huh? Wh, what happened? Go, fucking burn him into ashes!」  

Kisaragi-senpai was desperately trying to take command over his magic, but these fireballs were floating unperturbed..

Kisaragi-senpai who was clearly vexed by this phenomenon leashed his frustration on his associates.

「Oi, you lot! Use your damn magic!」 

「Eh? Ri, right. 『Wind Cutter!』!」 

「『Fire Lance』!」 

These magic spells kept coming my way.

However, every last of them was no better than the first, they just stopped in the air and wouldn’t move any further.

「T, THE FUCK’S GOING ON!?!?」 

Kisaragi-senpai couldn’t be any further shocked to see that their magic just stopped. In the meanwhile, his magic spells called out to me.

『Masutah! What should we do about these guys? Should we kill ‘em?』 

『We’re born ready!』 

『Tell us what to do, Masutah!』 

These magic spells just casually betrayed their own creators and said that to me.

I just laughed bitterly when I heard it, then spoke to them kindly.

「It’s okay, you don’t need to attack them. I’m sure you guys have enough capability to do so, but there’s a possibility that the classroom would receive unwanted collateral damage. Instead, I want you to vanish as naturally as you can. Can I ask you that?」 

『If that’s what Masutah so wished, then we have no other things to say. But… is it really okay?』 

「Yeah. Thanks for the consideration. I’ll depend on you guys next time.」 

After I said so, the Magic Spells became elated and cheered 『Yaaay! Masutah praised me!』 before they vanished from the spot.

Kisaragi-senpai and his goons who were oblivious of this conversation were, again, surprised by the development.

「W, WHY THE FUCK OUR MAGIC JUST GONE!?!?」 

「Umm… Is that all? We’re about to start our study session here, so…」 

For a moment, pure bewilderment was showing itself on their faces, but it soon turned into spears and lances of glares.

「Freaking getting cocky on us… WOY!! JUST SHOWER HIM WITH MAGIC!!」  

『OU!』 

With Kisaragi-senpai’s cue, the other heroes once again send magic spells to me in a large amount.

However, as though my words were collectively captured by these magic spells, each and every of them vanished before they made contact with me.

Since I sensed would take a while, I called out to Helen.

「Helen.」  

「Wh, what?」 

「I’ll do something about them, you can start the study session with everyone else.」 

「Under these circumstances!? Just how absurd are you!?」 

Am I? But, I don’t want to waste any more time… Well, let’s not dwell on the details.

Helen, despite her retort, brought the other students to their respective desk and started the study session. Un, that’s for the best.

In the midst of it, Saria called out to me.

「Seiichi, okay?」 

「I’m okay. Saria, why don’t you go and study with everyone else?」 

「Un! Thanks! Seiichi too, do your best!」  

I patted Saria’s head before she returned to where the others were, then started studying.

Kisaragi-senpai, who watched this carefree conversation, had his face became red itself and barked.

「D… DON’T FUCK WITH MEEEE!!! YOU THINK YOU CAN IGNORE ME…!? FUCK! FUCK! FUCKFUCKFFUUUUUUCCKK!! WHY THE FUCK IT WON’T FUCKING HIIIITTTTT!?!?!?!?!?!?」 

It’s because I personally asked your very own magic.

It mattered not how hard he shouted, his magic just would vanish before they deal any real damage.

Despite the fact that his magic would always vanish no matter what, Kisaragi-senpai’s eyes still gleamed and he began to use another type of magic.

「Fine… why don’t I show you the symbol of our Hero title, 『Holy Attribute Magic』….!」  

「Ah, you better stop…」 

「HAHAHAHA!! IT’S TOO LATE NOW!! FUCKING DIE!! 『HOLY LANCE』!!」 

The spear of light spell that was different from its cousin 『Light Attributed Magic』, in the fact that it packed Divine aura in it, emerged from Kisaragi-senpai’s palm and made its way it’s me.

However, in the end, it wasn’t that much different from the previous spells, as this 『Holy Attributed Magic』 vanished without trace too.

「whywhyWHYWHYWHHY!!? T, the symbol my Hero title, 『Holy Attributed Magic』 just vanished….!?」 

He must have so much confidence in that 『Holy Attributed Magic』 of his, but since I personally asked his very magic, whatever kind of spell that is will end the same.

In addition——.

『【Holy Attributed Magic: Intermediate】 have been acquired. Taking into account of Seiichi-sama’s latent capacity, 【Holy Attributed Magic: Intermediate】 have been changed into 【Holy Attributed Magic: Extreme】.』 

That’s why I told him to stop!

Look! Now you made my body triggered its function! See that!? It was 『Intermediate』 before, and yet this thing just went and changed it into 『Extreme』! 

Why would I be able to use Holy Attributed Magic even better than the Heroes!? What’s the use of that!?

When I was retorting to the Announcement in my head, Kisaragi-senpai’s group was starting to figure that Magic had no effect on me, and each of them pulled a sword out of thin air.

Those swords had the design like those 『Holy Swords』 from the old RPG games, and every members of the present Heroes had one.

「If Magic won’t do, then Sword it is. This is the very weapon that only us Heroes may wield, the one of its kind… the 『Holy Sword』!」 

Arbitrarily, I used the skill 『Advanced Appraisal』 on these 『Holy Swords』. 

『Holy Sword』 …A Divine Sword whereas only the Hero can wield. It deals high damage against demonkind. …I think.

So it really was just 『Holy Sword』. 

In addition, they didn’t particularly have any special power.

Eh, did you say being able to use this is the proof that you’re a Hero? Are you kidding me!?

Even from the result of the appraisal, it wasn’t just 『Deals high damage against demonkind』, but even that was being questioned! 

It has no effect then!!

I was quite taken aback by this joke of an effect, but I assumed that to their eyes, I looked like to be taken aback by the very appearance of these 『Holy Swords』. 

「Fufufu… This sword’s original role is to kill Demonkins, you see. By that, I mean that this is the weapon that deals high damage against demons. With this, even the Demon King will be killed in an instant.」 

No, I think that’s simply impossible.

「Now, it feels wasteful to use this weapon against a small fry like you, but… You’ve made fool out of us. That sin can only be paid with your death.」  

「Eeeh…」 

They’re attempting to kill a human so casually… are they fine on the head?

Well, to me who’ve killed various monsters, I might have no right to say that about others.

「Then… Go fucking die already!」 

The first to attack was Ooyama-senpai.

He was as rough as he looked, and his swordplay had no technique whatsoever to support it.

My measure against it was simple——.

「Nn」 

I just avoided it without hurry.

「Kuh! …So you can avoid my attack… not bad, to say at least.」 

Ooyama-senpai was saying so with a composed face.

Etto… yeah. One thing I understand is that they won’t hold a candle against the Demon King with this much strength.

However, my thoughts weren’t invisible to these people, so they were able to say whatever they wanted.

「Oi oi, Gou~. You’re making him look pitiful. C’mon, show the real thing already.」 

「He’s right, just get one in!」 

「Ou, you’re right!」 

Ooyama-senpai looked at me with a grin.

「You hear ‘em, so we’re done checking the water. Unfortunate for you, isn’t it?」 

「Haah.」 

「Bastard… that attitude fucking got on my nerves…!」  

With veins popped on his forehead, Ooyama-senpai came attacking me once again.

It was his serious, like how they told him to, but… 

I couldn’t tell what was so different from the previous one.

The result was, I normally evaded his attack. Ah, the floor could get scratched, let’s layer it with protective magic.

「Wha!? My serious attack got evaded!?」 

「Yo, you’re kidding right?」 

「Gou! I told you to go serious!」 

「Kuh! GrrRRRrrraaaAAAaah!!!」  

Perhaps they genuinely believe I couldn’t evade his attack, after a short while of disturb, they had him swing his holy sword on me again and again.

However, I just normally avoided them.

Aah… the wall could get scratched too….  let’s use Wind magic to slightly avert his sword point.

Utilizing magic in the amount where these Heroes wouldn’t notice, I kept my evade play whilst keeping the classroom from any scratch.

「Fuck! Why won’t it hit!?」 

「! Rentou, we’re joining.」 

「Y, yeah. You guys too!」  

『Y, yes!』  

The other heroes who had snapped out and joined in swinging their Holy Swords against me.

But, it made no difference for me, as all I did were avoiding and keeping the classroom from receiving any damage.

「What’s wrong!? You’ve been only evading!」 

Tougou-senpai said so to reel me in, but I paid no mind to it and did what I did.

Despite knowing it held no meaning to me, they also slipped in magic attacks among their sword play.

Some of these attacks went towards Saria and the other students, so I carefully averted them away. In the end, I was their only opponent.

This lasted for 20 minutes, after which, they started to dull out along with their shortened breaths.

「Haa… haa… wh, wha… ‘s…. happe…」 

「haa haa haa haa… m… monster… 」 

「haa… haa… I, can’t….」  

「Err… will you guys be fine?」 

No, I mean it.

While I do worry their physical stamina, what I’m really concerned about is that they’re going to face the Demon King with that kind of stamina. 

Yeah. If the supposed to revive Demon King is on the same level as Lucius-san, then all I see is instant massacre for them.
