Guns and I maintain a constant distance and don’t move. A different kind of quiet rise.
The people around us swallow hard and stare at us.
“…… not moving?”
Numbly, it was Guns who opened his mouth first.
“If you stand there defenseless like that, it’s like you’re telling me to come slash at you any time?”
“That’s what I’m saying.”
Guns listened to my statement as if he’s out of time.
“…… Apparently the swagger I felt for you was just coming from ignorance. I didn’t realize that you couldn’t feel any sense of urgency after watching me and the candidates fight so far.”
Guns sighs and shakes his head.
He seems to have completely dismissed me as an object of interest.
“I’ve seen a lot of candidates like you. Who are overconfident in their own abilities, underestimate their opponents, and lick them like that. This is the reason why other noble and famous families despise commoners. Nobles and prominent families are trained in magic from the time they are born. It could be said that they were born to be magicians. It’s not all aristocrats, of course, but there are relatively many mages around ……. I’m sure you’ll be able to find out what’s going on in the world. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a way to make it work for you. So–………… what are you laughing at?”
Guns cuts off his words and looks at me.
I seem to have laughed, my cheeks loosening up at the mention of it without realizing it. I gently cover my mouth with my hand.
”–No, commoner, nobleman, I just thought you were a guy who’s a bit of a Mayan. Are all sorcerers in charge of exams like that?”
“I’m telling you to come, sir. It’s only a third-rate way of looking at someone based on their origins.
At my words, Guns strokes his stubble and sighs deeply.
“Don’t go overboard with your words, Noah Akright. …… All right. I’ve dared to let the examiners attack first to give them time to show some magic, but if you’re so confident, I’ll attack you from here. It’s too late to regret it.”
“Great, I’m excited.”
“Let’s see if your confidence —- is real!”
A moment later, Guns’ magic goes into effect.
A fierce tailwind blows from behind as if to draw my body closer. Manipulation of the surrounding wind …… simple wind magic!
If you want me to get closer, I’ll get as close as I want.
I start running towards the Guns, not against the wind.
Guns’ sword draws a half-moon trajectory and jumps into my neck with an eye on my neck.
Clearly, the blade caged with killing intent …… has a surprisingly low boiling point, this guy.
A moment later, the blitz emanating from my hand flicks back at Guns’ sword.
It didn’t stop there, the momentum of the spark pushed Guns to turn his body upside down significantly.
”Guh……! Hey, hey …… what’s the power of this ……!
“What’s up? It’s just simple witchcraft.”
Guns looked at his sword and hand for a bit, then numbly re-clenched his palm several times.
“…… I see. Looks like it’s not just talk. It’s a simple lightning magic, but its power is not comparable …… to other lightning magic users at all, so you can’t be too careful at all.”
I’m sure you’ll be able to see the difference between me and the others with that one strike, as expected of the S class. I’m sure you have the right stuff. I’m going to take it seriously.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“I was wrong. You’re strong …… and I’m going to pull the demon sword out of your hand.”
“Ha, that’s good. Show me some of that power.”
“Rise and shine, my magical sword. Time to storm.”
“The Magic Sword……!”
“Oh no, Mr. Guns has his sword now……!”
“Who was that test taker?”
The crowd buzzes at once.
Guns slowly pull Chougal out of his sheath.
The air changes all at once.
That sword is an ordinary sword at first glance, but the scenery around the sword is somewhat bure-tear.
The area around that sword is …….
“Let’s go, Noah Akrite.”
From Guns’ eyes, the margin of appreciation that he had been on the side of evaluating earlier was gone.
Guns held his sword vertically and quietly meditated on it.
The wind around him flowed in as if it were wrapped around the magic sword.
Instantly, a tornado is generated from the magic sword that Guns swung on the spot.
The tornado peels off the floor and thrusts towards me in a straight line, engulfing everything around it.
A fierce wind and a sound that pokes at my eardrums.
“Let’s see, Noah Akright! Try to break it down……!”
Oh, so that’s why you’re saving it.
I hold my hand out to the tornado.
The headwind makes my hair and robes flutter backward.
Above my head, a huge double magic circle emerges.
In the next moment, three thunderstorms were emitted from the magic circle.
A fierce thunderclap roars, releasing a blinding flash of lightning that causes everyone present to look away and meditate.
The tornado is drowned out in an instant and a running bolt of lightning strikes Guns.
“Guh……! Nooooooooooooooo ……!”
The smell of burnt ground and a large amount of smoke rising up.
A normal sorcerer would be unable to react and would be at the level of instant death, but …… this man would prevent it. I’m not going to be able to get away with it. Even if you’re going to evaluate this me, that’s even better.
When the smoke slowly cleared, there was Guns’ figure with one knee on the ground, defending himself with his magic sword.
”Silly, this magic …… isn’t just an examinee! Lightning magic at its finest……! None of this is ……–no, I’m pretty sure he was around the same age as you guys …… You’re not… …you are the Thunderer–“
“Oops, Mr. Guns. …… Now I’m just a commoner, Noah Akright.”
I gently put my finger to my lips.
Guns breathe out briefly as if he has guessed.
“–I see. Then it makes sense. You got me on my knees here, and you shoved the Chougar right in front of me.”
The one Guns holds in his left hand is an ordinary sword at first glance, but if you look closely, you can see that the circumference of its blade is wriggling at high speed. Probably, the wind magic continues to be activated at high speed. It’s a small sword, but it’s the one that can be called a storm.
You’re going to be able to cut through my “Thunderbolt” with it. Normally, I’d be rolling around charred by now.
“Do you still want to see it? My power.
“………… No, let’s not. I’ve seen enough of you to know what you’re capable of.”
Guns put the magic sword back into its scabbard.
”I’m the judge. I can’t afford to expose the other candidates to any more abominations.”
“I’ll see you at some point in the future…….”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
