Translator’s note:Ani-sama, you are only the second-best swordsman in our clan. Mile Chapter 74: Awaken ◎ Talesu Town - stadium – the day of fighting
Weiln stepped in suddenly.
(My cute little sister’s party is very popular, but that is not the case. The life of my beloved little sister is at risk everyday if she keeps being a hunter. I don’t want her to continue working as a hunter.
And, to avoid scratching her cute face even if we make a mistake, I will aim at her torso sideways.) (Weiln’s inner thought)
Gī ~in! (SFX)
“What’s the matter, Eldest Ani-sama?” (Maevis)
(It was impossible for her to receive my slash with one hand.
At least, Maevis 8 months ago wouldn’t be able to prevent even 70% to 80% the speed and power of the current slashing.
Why can she easy receive it?) (Weiln’s inner thought)
Gin gin gi~n! (SFX)
“Im… impossible …” (Weiln) (Ba… bakana)
(There are a few people in our clan’s knights can prevent my three consecutive blows.
And It was easily repelled and handled.) (Weiln’s inner thought)
“Impossible…” (Weiln) (Ari en)
Maevis talks to Weiln who makes a foolish face.
“Eldest Ani-sama, it wasn’t only you who works hard and is strengthening on a daily basis. I also have been training with people far more exeed Chichiue or Ani-sama’s power and speed everyday.” (Maevis)
“What …?” (Weiln)
And Maevis states the decision blow.
“Eldest Ani-sama, I was told that you are the strongest in the territory because right now Chichiue due to his age doesn’t have his normal physical strength anymore. But actually, Eldest Ani-sama, your strength in our territory is only the second best.” (Maevis)
“Who are the best then?” (Weiln)
And then Maevis pointing to her face with the thumb of hre left hand.
Weiln looked at Maevis and stunned that can’t say anything.◎ Talesu Town - stadium – yesterday
No matter how much special training Mile gives, Maevis can’t get too much strengh in just one night.
Mile thought that it will be difficult for Maevis to win her oldest brother with decent means.
So this time is an exception. Mile decided to refrain from using it but right now she has no other choice.
Yes, it is a nanomachine.
Mile called out to nanomachine and asked questions in her head.
(Why can’t Maevis use magic?) (Mile’s inner thought)
The nanomachine is really happily that Mile rely on it after a long absence.
“E? Attually, she can use it” (Nano)
(What!?) (Mile’s inner thought)
“There are various reasons for those who can not use magic.
Maevis falls under the “low effective thought wave”.
In other words, there is a problem with the ability to radiate thought waves outside the body.
Apparently, many clans seem to be in the same state, so it’s genetic …” (Nano)
(Then you can help her use magic?) (Mile’s inner thought)
“No, because there is a problem with the function to radiate the thought waves outside the body” (Nano)
(… can she radiate in the body then?)
“That’s right. Isn’t that wisdom obvious?“
(Ahhhh, be quiet!) (Mile’s inner thought)
Then, as a result of hearing various questions from the nanomachine, Mile finally understands everything.
For Megis, the output of the thought wave is weak, and the part which radiates it, the one corresponding to the antenna in the radio wave is not functioning.
Therefore, it is impossible for Maevis to release the thought wave out of her body. That’s why she can’t use any magic.
However, even without an antenna, a signal still flows in the circuit. In other words, although weak, the thought waves are spread throughout her body.
(If there is a nanomachine inside her body, they will react.) (Mile’s inner thought)
“Normally, we nanomachines don’t staying in organisms … It’s uncomfortable” (Nano)
I could understand the feelings of the nanomachines when It said so.
Besides, there’re instructions for them from the Creator to stay out of the body of the organism.
“However, there are several cases where nanomachines exist in the body of an organism.
The 1st case is when people use magic.
In order to express the magic effect in the living body such as healing magic, it was necessary for the nanomachines to invade into an organism body.
But they will go out of the body after they finish the role and Maevis can’t use any magic in the first place.
Beside, the healing magic has poor reaction efficiency of the nanomachine because it takes time for nanomachines to invade the body, so there will be a moment lag to use magic when other use healing magic on yourself.
By the way, because your thought has a close distance and a direct connection state, it is natural that nanomachine will give priority to them.
This is recognized as 『Magic resistance』by humans. ” (Nano)
By the way, what Pauline does against that B rank Hunter is almost the same. By imaging the spell, Pauline un-directed order the nanomachine to invade his body. But that hunter doesn’t realize it to send the thought to change Pauline’s order. Beside Pauline wavelength is more stronger.
“And the second case is “nanomachine natural invasion”, that is the invasion of nanomachines into the body in a natural form due to breathing, eating and drinking, etc.
In this case, the inhaled nanomachine will try to escape out of the body immediately, but since nanomachine exists in the air with sufficient density, it means that a constant number of nanomachines are always present from the oral cavity to the lungs.
If these nanomachines are received a direct connection thought wavelength, although the effect is limited due the number is small …” (Nano)
(But It still reacts, isn’t it ?) (Mile’s inner thought)
And Mile thought
(If we can’t use nanomachines outside the body, then I can teach her a simple reinforcement method for Maevis who can use it if there is a slightly existing nanomachine in the body, and for Maevis who adores the knight.
… Yes, there was only one.
It is physical strengthening magic) (Mile’s inner thought)
After telling Mile that “I am planning tomorrow’s simulated game and get a share of the revenue from opening a store via a commercial guild”, Pauline wents to talk to the branch of the Hunter Guild and the commercial guild. Because Mile was worried, she ask Rena go together.
Only Miles and Maevis remained in the Stadium.
Thinking about it again, Maevis didn’t receive much benefit from Mile compared to Rena and Pauline’s power leveling.
Well, Mile did teach Maevis “god speed sword”.
But that is the result of Maevis hardwork from continuing to train with Mile as her opponent. It’s rude to Maevis to say that was power leveling.
It’s only the result of her desperate efforts not to left behind too much from the other in group for more than half a year.
Still, her performance as C rank hunter didn’t rise as much as Rena and Pauline who rapidly improved ability with Mile teaching.
Rena’s fire magic, Pauline’s curative magic are like ranks B, and possibly just as close to A rank.
But considering their knowledge, experience, applied skill, speed, body technique and others, Rena and Pauline are only about upper rank of B rank.
Meanwhile, Maevis’ sword technique was higher than C or lower than B.
Even that skill named “God Speed Sword 1.4 times”. It’s only mean Maevis is 1.4 times faster comapre to before she learning from Mile. But original, Maevis doesn’t have so much speed, even if she got a bit faster, that was all she can do.
If her opponent are the bandits, she can fight with several of them at the same time, but when she fights with soldiers or a knights, it will be different.
Last time we fight the soldiers, Mile had put a pointed pebble is in our opponent’s shoes or even the shoe sole was scraped diagonally.
And even if there was only one opponent, if it was a skilled soldier or knight, it will be hard for Maevis to win.
So Mile decided to lend a hand to Maevis who was struggling with her lack of power until now.
“Uhm, about that, Maevis …, tomorrow, you must win by any any cost, aren’t you?” (Mile)
“Yes, that’s why I am doing special training now, aren’t I?” (Maevis)
Maevis reply to Mile with a dubious face.
“Well, actually, there’s a way for you to win, but …” (Mile)
“What! Is that true? Please tell me, how can I do that!” (Maevis)
Mile is quite taken aback with Maevis vigour.
“Well, that’s the way to strengthen the human body, but that might be against to the pride of Maevis as a knight …” (Mile)
“I don’t care! This is my last change to chase my dream.
Anyway, if it can help me get stronger, I will accept it somehow!
Well, please tell me! How can I do it?” (Maevis)
Mile thought that Mavis might refuse with “It’s a cowardly measure as a swordsman, it isn’t my real power, I can’t accept it.” But looks like she worries over nothing.
And Mile explained to Maevis how to strengthen the body.
Mile thought it will be troublesome to explain everything, so she only told Maevis that Meavis can control her body with her own will power as the “secret of human body strengthening”.
In that case, it might be easy for Maevis to accept it as a skill acquired by training.
Maevis stared at miles with a sparkling eyes and listen to everywords.
After explanation, it is practical training.
Balance of strengthening, balance of power, grasp of speed.
Maevis kept falling over and scratch many times after failing to grasp the feeling.
And Mile had healed her every single time.
And when the surrounding began to get dark, Pauline and Rena came back,
they saw Maevis with full of confidence and smile really happy.
Ah… I hate explanation. Way too long and many hard words.
I’m sure I make a lot of mistakes this time.
I’m sorry, please deal with it for now.[Next]
