Chapter 51.2 : M For M Because M of M Starting From Nine
After all the goblins had turned to particles of lights, we called out to Mop-san who was rolling on the ground.
「Are you okay? Mop-san」
「U-Uhm, I’m okay, Sou-kun. Sorry, rather than showing my strong points I become a burden instead」
Well it wasn’t a problem if we look at the results. What a mess.
「Well no one got injured except for Mop-san afterall」
And it wasn’t counted as a wound since it was a wound form his own tamed monster.
「Nevertheless, why are you riding on its back? Is that the materialization of your wish to be shaken off by it? 」
My spirit, that was constantly battered down, finally came to a level where I could handle Mop-san's quirk with a calm mind. However, when he heard my remark, Mop-san blushed instead. Please, not this pattern again, I beged inside my head when I saw his reaction.
「Yeah. You just can’t get enough of that thrill right! 」
DON’T AGREE WITH MY REMARK! I’M DIFFERENT FROM YOU. LIKE HELL I COULD UNDERSTAND THE THRILL OF HIGH LEVEL PLAY LIKE BEING SHAKEN OFF A BEAST! THOUGH I WON’T HESITATE TO PROSTATE ON THE GROUND IF AOI-SAN CLAD IN MIKO CLOTHES SAID THAT SHE WANTED TO STEP ON M―― eh! ? What the hell was I thinking about? Oh shit, talking with this person would gradually scrape my AT-Field in seconds.
「Moreover, I have the powerful 【Rider】 skill. Since this skill raises the ability of the monster that I mount, I have to do my best to ride Ikkun whenever I call him」
So you had that kind of skill huh. So the name of that wild boar was Ikkun huh. Could it be that the name of that bird is “Tokkun” and that fish is “Sakkun”? [TL : I from Ikkun is from Inosisi[wild boar], T0 from “Tokkun” is from Tori[Bird], and Sa from “Sakkun” is from Sakana[fish]]
Aoi-san and Yukihime-san were rushing to our side while we had such conversations.
「I’m going to heal you right now, Mop-san」
「T-Thank you very much, Blue-san. But, for someone like me, will you at least do a neglect p—GOHA! ? 」
「Ooops, sowrie~. I had to stop that dangerous idea in your head」
「I-It’s nothing, or rather, thanks for the treat of this wonderful thi―― Yukihime-san」
………. would this party be okay?
We arrived at Sasebo city at night on the same day. Despite facing against monsters so many times along the way, me and Yukihime-san could safely dispatch our enemies as the vanguard with Aoi-san as our support.
Though we gave a different instruction to Mop-san not to mount his summoned beast, because for some unknown reason, he was being attacked by his own monster and he was also smiling upon receiving that attack.
Anyway, we finally arrived at Sasebo city. And, though I wanted to go to Hello work since it’s so difficult to search on our own, it was already late in the evening. As such, we log out and promised to meet again at night.
After I spent some family time with mom and Ruri, I took a bath and dinner before I, once again, stood in the middle of Sasebo city.
Sasebo city was a rampart city and, at a glance, a solid stronghold city. I could see the figures of palace guards from time to times on top of the wampart.
Because each NPC of this city had its own role, there might be some sort of meaning behind them assigning the palace guards sporadically in that way; which led me to wonder about the reason behind it.
「―― As if I have that much spare time to wonder about such things」
I had my own reason for logging in ahead of our promised time.
My equipment had became even more splendid compared to my initial equipment. My gun, named 『Silver Hawk』, had a really high power considering the current stage of the game, while my knives, called 『Shidarezakura《Weeping Cherry Blossom》』, forged by Hanzou-san, and the solid katana, 『Shuugetsu《Harvest Moon》』, was a threat comparable to my pair of guns. And there were also my boots, a limited drop from the boss, 『Gale』 and 『Thunderclap』.
There was a part of my body that was left with no equipment, namely, my attire. It was still the initial equipment that was named 『Traveller's attire』. Despite its uncool appearance, I didn't replace it until now but, as expected, it might be time to change this attire.
It was definitely not because Yukihime-san said 「Don’t you think that attire is uncool?」 to me. Not for that reason. Yeah, absolutely not.
I really couldn't go on wearing this attire with low defensive power the whole game. Yes, this was my investment to increase my defense. It's normal to take a countermeasure to my greatest weakness, namely my paper thin defense. I was about to go and buy a new attire for myself, for the sake of increasing my defense. Yes, that's all this is about.
Thus, I ran by myself in the Sasebo city at night.
