WARNING: it’s important so I use cap.
The new girl is a little special, so will I go all out and translate even what her action and word really mean. This is S(pecial) T(ranslator) N(note) , S.T.N instead of T.N
This chapter may annoy you because of too many notes but I can’t calm my fangirl heart when it is my favorite girl.
Just like the victim girl in the picture, you may think “I don’t need to know that”
Bear with me until chapter 31 because she doesn’t have any scene time anymore after that for a really really long time.
Chapter 28: Didn’t you boast too much about speed?
“Do you still feel any pain?” (Arge)
“Ah, about that … I’m sorry, my ears can’t hear anymore…” (Oswald)
“You cannot hear? Then it isn’t just cut off, is this a curse? Okay, can you hear me now?” (Arge)
“Oh…Oh! Thank you very much, Arge nee-san!” (Oswald)
Oswald-kun is getting dizzy, he has lowered his head.
Lost blood will not return anytime soon.
I have cast restoration magic that cures trauma is to “stop the bleed,
temporarily increase the ability to produce blood and regenerate the lost part”.
After a minute or two, there will be more blood,
but until then he will be a little dizzy like now.
The cutoff ears are growing little by little.
Will it take about five minutes until complete recovery?
It takes a few minutes to cure major injuries, major illnesses, and strong curses.
Even if it is a high level of recovery magic.
Of course, energy for making blood and missing parts are covered with my magical power.
I touch lightly on his body and check if there is any other abnormality.
Blood gets on my hand, but it was ‘old blood’, there is no new bleeding.
Yes, his wound is patched up.
Well, then…what should I do with “that person” over there?
(T.N: Arge worry about Oswald and she has no time to look at the girl yet)
“That person” was fighting Oswald-kun, …or rather over-powered him.
From what I saw, she is a girl…about 16 years old as she seems to be a little older than my present appearance.
At the moment when I broke in, she stopped attacking and took a distance.
It is also quite a distance.
Perhaps she is wary of me.
I want her to return as it is because it is troublesome,
but it seems that she would not return that easily.
As for me, thinking that Oswald-kun will get killed and is dismantled when I’m leaving the forest, it makes me feel sad.
Even if the distance is far away, I can smell a lot of bloody smells from her body.
It is not only covered in blood from Oswald-kun but there is more blood from others.
Somehow, while I was smelling, I understood the identity of the ‘old blood’ smell.
… It is the smell, from a lot of people killing monsters right now.
(T.N @ E.D: a lot of people are killing monsters in the forest right now, not this girl is killing anyone, or any poachers get killed.
In short, a lot of people in the forest but none of them even get hurt, only monsters are the one get killed)
The girl in front of me is probably one of those people.
The scent of the blood of many living things being killed.
She is not a poacher.
Look like she is a mercenary or something the poachers hired.
There are still a few smells of people from the back of the forest behind her, so it is no doubt.
Is it that she came to exterminate the Guardian of the forest first?
She is still watching me, she has short black hair, her amber eyes still locked on me.
*Jiggle*, as if she appraisal. (S.T.N: an assassin never look away from her target and will not attack blindly)
“… You’re fast.” (S.T.N: allow me to praise you)
“Fast, isn’t it ?” (Arge)
“You’re fast, but I cannot forgive you, you suddenly appeared … like a flash, I could not see it” (T.N: by the way she calls herself “Boku” like a polite boy, she is a “Bokukko”) (S.T.N: how dare you to move so fast, even faster than I can see, faster than I can move, that was supposed to be my special)
“There is nothing faster than me in this world, right !? Yurage ~e!!”
(T.N: 揺らげぇ: Yurage ~e mean “flowing”, she use this word when she makes her after-image) (S.T.N: Prideful girl)
I wanted to talk over as much as possible, but apparently, she seems to be a type that is not good at talking to people.
Shaking, the opponent trembled for just a moment, no…”Blurred” was the more correct word.
The next moment she appeared beside me.
… Certainly, She is fast.
That is to say, this is only just a straightforward impression.
She’s not only fast, but she is also “leaving a virtual image and moving.”
By the time when the figure of her shaking is seen, she has already moved away from that place.
It seems that when she is ‘blurred’ that perhaps some form of magic leaves only her figure on the spot. Is it like a hologram?
What she is doing is quite easy though.
First, she makes a virtual image, step backward, and after that, she ran as if sewing between the trees, and came here.
Everything that she did until the end was just that, but of course, Oswald-kun eyes could not keep up at such speed.
While the opponent is distracted by afterimages, she moves silently and at high speed.
It’s such tactics.
She set up a blade using her own hand. (T.N: maybe I should use word hand-chop)
There was clearly ‘something’ on her hand.
The air flow is clearly different there.
That’s probably winding magic.
She is most likely manipulated the wind and make something like an invisible blade. (T.N: Please watch anime Fate series and see how Saber use the invisible sword, well, this girl is more like assassin though)
…Because she is concerned about being fast.
So she does not have anything in her hands, she probably cannot even hold weapons.
She has reduced her equipment’s weight to the utmost limit, making it possible to move as quickly as she can, isn’t it?
It seems that her body weight is also light, it’s very good for moving quickly.
Clothes are also light. It is tight black clothing that you often see in gyms and it doesn’t restrict her movement.
If she need to carry something, it is packed in both of her wrists (T.N: like a hidden blade).
I wonder about what her bracelet is. The shape is simple, but it has a strange emblematic design.
And a ‘blade’ with literal sharpness as a real sword approached my neck.
“… !?” (Arge)
“Why didn’t you get hurt?”
… It is a bit too powerful, isn’t it?
My response is simple. I only accepted the ‘blade’ that was being shaken at the neck.
If you hold her hand as is, speed does not matter at all.
As long as I’m grasping, the other party cannot take the distance.
“Wow, what is … !?” (S.T.N: how can she grasp my hand, my attack should be perfect)
“Maybe your magic is weaker than my magic resist.” (Arge)
“Blow-kill!” (S.T.N: one more try)
“You really do not listen to me.” (Arge)
I tried to tell her properly that she cannot break through my magical resistance with her magic, but it was ignored.
I was not damaged by the magic of her wind because I have high magic resistance. That’s it.
The attack that has been released has become a little girl’s chop. (T.N: see Translator corner)
Because she didn’t listen, she didn’t know such things.
So she use her other hand that was still free, aiming for the wrist of my hand that was grasping her hand.
Attack at such a speed that even an image is likely to be left behind.
Naturally, it included the invisible blade from her wind magic. Probably it is a stroke of a curse.
“Too bad.” (Arge)
“Hu… huh! What… is…. this!?” (T.N:え、ええっ！？ な、なぁにこれぇ！ ？: E, ē ~tsu! ?Na,na ~anikore~e! ? ) (S.T.N: MC show her cheat power, assassin girl get shocked, it’s super effective!)
I grasp her hand with my other hand. I have now completely caught her.
I also have curse resistance, which is set to the maximum level, so her curse attack does not do anything.
The opponent somehow struggles to escape.
She resists not only by swinging of her arms but also kicking and head butting, but it is deemed useless and it ends soon enough.
“Why, what happened…?”
“I’m just simply faster than you”
“Better than me … faster!?”
“Because it is true”
Certainly, the opponent is fast. She is probably even faster than Neguseo-san.
… I am still faster, though.
“Super Agility” Body ability. The status that I decided to choose.
(T.N: In case you don’t remember, this is the only thing she chooses, she doesn’t want to do anything, but if she must do anything, she prefers to do it as fast as possible, other skill she leaves it to loli-gramp)
This does not indicate a simple movement speed.
It refers to all the abilities related to ‘speed’, such as the fingers, reflexes, moving eyesight.
In other words, the higher this ability is, the more quickly you can react. Including correspondence to the opponent.
This ability is always active at the low output – but if I concentrate my mind, I can see everything as slow motion.
I could have stop Felnote-san’s self-injury if the surroundings were always in slow motion, but it will be tough to live if the time is in slow motion all the time.
All the actions of the other party were visible.
Everything before including the last attack on Oswald-kun, I had use this ability to help in time.
Even if she is resisted in the capturing state, it is too late so I can respond easily.
If she tries using force, I am stronger. If she tries using speed, I am faster, and I can hold her down quickly.
Please do not run away from the trouble. I already had a match with you.
I’m tired of concentrating so I really want to stop early and go to bed.
“Blood Arms. ‘Rope’” (Arge)
“Hi ~i~…!?” (S.T.N: a girl’s cute scream)
“Please tie her”
When I’m confirming the injury of Oswald-kun in advance, I change his blood and put on my palm. Now, I just simply activate it.
A bunch of threads knitted and knitted in blood slowly restrains her.
Naturally, she resists, but I kept it going around her and rolled the whole body.
Just like I did to Oswald-kun, I wrapped her up carefully.
I continue to wrap her with blood rope and after I’m done with that, I throw the rope over a branch at the high position of the nearby tree.
I pull her up and finished hanging her there.
“Damn it! Let me down! Let me down !!”
“Okay, I got you now … um … Flat-chest Hand-Chop-san.” (T.N: つるぺたチョップさん: Tsuru Peta choppu-san) (T.N: I knew it, MC is the best)
“Who is Flat-Chest Hand-Chop!?”
“… Flat-chest chop?” (ぺたんこチョップ: Petanko choppu?)
“Don’t toy with me”
Well, because my mouth is bad, maybe I should say “Cursed Flat Chest”? Well, whichever is okay though.
No matter what you say this child, she seems to get angry. Fufu, interesting.
“What are you grinning for? Let me down!”
… The smell of humans is going away.
From afar, it seems that they were asking this girl about the situation in some way. I guess this child is an escort.
“Arge nee-san, are you alright?”
“Yes, I’m totally fine, it seems that there are still poachers in the forest other than this girl”
“……! I will go there !!”
As Oswald-kun said that he starts running. It seems that he is also working with the birds in the forest, and there are also traps. I can leave the rest to him.
“Ignore it! Let me down!”
Well, (Tsuru Peta) Vine Flat chest is bad mouth … Is it bad mouth Flat-chest? I wonder what to do about that.
For the time being, I take my eyes off her in a bit and I pretend to go away.
And this is how little girl hand-chop you.
You can hate the new girl (that’s your freedom).
But please keep it civil.
