The world's strongest S-class adventurer, known as the Thunder Emperor, shows his power without restraint and becomes a warrior in the Academy of Magic - Chapter 4
I look around, running through the roof at breakneck speed.
“Whoa, where are we heading? It’s really hard to get away from old Hal!”
The girl raises her voice over the sound of the wind as I hold her in my arms.
“I’m not gonna get away with it.”
“Even if you get away with it, you’re screwed if you get stuck in the exam room. It’s only a matter of time before you figure it out.”
“Oh, that’s right……. All I could think about was sprinkling old Hal…….”
Are you okay with this kid …….pretty natural?
“So, what are you going to do?”
“Of course, I’ll go down the alley to —-“
A moment later, the roof of the stables I was about to step into shatters into pieces, causing me to lose my balance and almost fall to the ground.
Step off and the body spins around in the air.
My world is turned upside down.
Keeping a firm grip on the girl, I quickly activate my Flash, kicking up the wall and jumping to the roof on the other side.
“Oh, you’ll pay for this!”
“I was so surprised……”
Down in the stables, the old man, with sword drawn, looked up at me.
“My first priority is to bring the young lady home. I can’t be bothered with those little things.”
“Well, No you can’t! You can’t get away from old Hal……! You can’t avoid a sword technique like that……!
“No, no, no, I haven’t had a single shot yet.”
But the girl doesn’t listen to my words and tries to get out of my arms.
“I’m sure that if you keep this up, you’ll get hurt too …… I’ll be able to handle it myself.”
“You are giving up? Maybe you couldn’t do it yourself, so you turned to me?”
“Yes, but ……. –because I don’t think I’m going to bother …… people to go through my convenience ……. It might be convenient for me to rely on you, but old Hal, seem to be more serious than I thought …….”
“You saw that! Old Hal is really strong!”
“Don’t worry. I’m the best.”
I re-carry the girl stiffly without question, and I fly my eyes around the area.
There was a place —- that was close to here and less crowded.
“Let’s go, girl–what’s your name?”
“Ni, Nina. ……”
“Let’s go, Nina. I haven’t finished the task. You’re going to have to take the test for sure.”
“Okay, …… I’ll bet you ……!”
“That’s the way it should be.”
I just run off at once.
“Mm! Do you still want to run away…… Too sweet, kid!”
The old man also gets up on the roof and runs out.
Okay, okay, he’s following me.
Now, let’s see if we can successfully lead him to that alley over there.
“Is this the end of your run?”
A back alley in the royal capital. It was intricate and dimly lit, with large buildings on either side blocking out the sunlight. Even if I shouted here, my voice wouldn’t reach the front street.
I put down Nina and turn her behind me.
“You’re done running. Honestly, I don’t have anything against you.”
“In that case, may I have my lady back?”
I shook my head.
“I can’t do that. I’ll have Nina take the test. It’s a request.”
Then the old man’s eyes become sharp.
The deeply engraved wrinkles and scars tell us that he has spent many years on the battlefield. It’s not that he’s weak. Rather, it’s a very high ranking category.
”Calling out the young lady is …… this is why those who call themselves sorcerers are ……”
“I don’t think the sorcerer had anything to do with it.”
“–That’s enough. The fact that you ran all the way to this alleyway to fight me …… means that you want to fight me, right? Ha, it makes me laugh. That overconfidence, it will shatter you to pieces in an instant.”
Nina, who had completely failed to say what I was up to and hadn’t been listening, came here and expressed her surprise.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
”Oh. I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to let the old man sleep until the exam is over. In this alley.”
I quickly transition my body’s regime to combat.
I can feel the magic power flooding my body.
The old man, in contrast, also draws the other saber he carries at his waist and holds a double sword.
The spirit is palpable. They say he was a famous adventurer, and they’re right. But…
“Let’s go! Kid!”
The old man packs it in at once.
The high-speed movement is shown in the tavern.
He kicks up the ground at once and moves left and right at high speed. It’s unstoppable speed …… follows it with its eyes and continues to capture the movement in its field of vision. It runs down the wall, jumps to the opposite wall, and moves at high speed, slicing and dicing the ground with its saber.
It’s fast …… this without magic. It’s certainly a big world. But …….
”Oh come on, it’s foolish for a sorcerer to go through the front door.
The next moment, the old man, who disappeared from my sight for a moment, passed right by me and jumped backward, spinning his body sideways in the air and slashing at me with his momentum.
A true rotary slash. An offensive and defensive attack that converted centrifugal force into an attack.
— but I can see it.
I react instantly and immediately turn back.
I hold my hand in front of me as the old man attacks.
The magic power builds up all at once, and the magic circle floating in front of me bursts violently.
“Sleep for a while —- “Spark
A moment later, from the magic circle that spread out in front of me, a flash of purple light is released in a straight line towards the old man.
”Simple attack magic! Not like that to him!”
“Sweet! You’re young. …… Such a simple, linear, magical attack …… is not made to pass up such a simple, linear, magical attack– –“
However, the blitz pushed back the sword that the old man held up to catch it.
”Noooooooooo ……what …… the ……hell! Ahhh!”
The old man is about to be hit by my purple light and blows backward at once.
When he runs into a pile of crates in the alleyway with a powerful sound, the old man lets out a puff of smoke and passes out with a crash.
“Go to sleep, old man. I’m taking Nina to the test.”
“Ha, old Hal!”
The old man collapses, and Nina runs to him.
“Don’t worry, I’ve got the power down enough to keep him from dying. Well, he won’t be able to get up for a while because of the numbness. That should give you plenty of time to finish the test.”
“He’s, not really dead ……?”
“…… It’s true, he’s breathing. Thanks for the …….”
With that, Nina stands up.
“I’d like to put old Hal in a safe place to sleep, so …… can I look for a place to stay for a bit?'”
“As you wish. If you let him sleep here, he’ll meet the hangman.”
After a short walk, Nina and I found an inn nearby, we rented one room and put the old man to bed. The butler, the way he calls her, the way he calls her daughter, …… and the financial resources to easily rent an inn. It’s a pretty nice lady, after all.
“I’m not going to be able to get it. Thank you. Let’s see… …… your name is ……”
“It’s Noah. Noah Akright.”
“Thank you, Mr. Noah. You’re very helpful.”
“Don’t worry about it. I’m just passing the time.”
It’s certainly interesting to see what you’re up against……
He was just a swordsman, but he was …… still out of the ordinary. Unlike monsters, they have thoughts and use techniques. So this is what Shelah was talking about.
“But that’s okay, even if you passed the test, now you have to convince them to let you pass. This isn’t the same as forcing your grandfather to sleep with you to take the test.”
“I know, ……. But I’m not sure I’m okay there.”
“What do you mean?”
“I come from a family of magicians. My mom is just afraid that people will spread the word that she has a daughter who failed her exams. So as long as I can take the exam, I’m good to go.”
“Oh, I see. A very highborn member of the royal family. It’s ridiculous. But I’ve seen a lot of nobles cherish such things when I was an adventurer …… especially after I became an A-class.”
I guess they are creatures that can’t live without looking good. Perhaps it would have political implications, too. It’s a world I don’t understand.
“I see. I’m sure that’s fine if you’re okay with it. Well, I’d better–“
And suddenly Nina screams out.
I quickly hold both ears down as quickly as I can.
“…… damn it …… shut up ……”
“We’re almost out of time for the exam…… and we’re not going to make it from here……”
Nina fell by her knees and put her hands on the ground and hung down in a crouch.
“I’ve been rescued by …… and now you’ve gotten Noah involved as well…….”
“Hey, don’t worry. I’ll make it in a moment.”
”It’s impossible to get to the …… institute from here, it’s directly opposite of King’s Landing …… by the time the exam starts.”
I force Nina to get up out of her slumped position.
“I’ll take care of it. I’ll have you with me in a moment.”
“For a moment ……?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
