Chapter 52: Shadow in the dark

“Please wait, the three of you”

Knives, chain sickle, and bombs. I poured water into the three of them who took out their weapon.
Kuzuha-chan is looking nervous. she understands the meaning of hiding and crossing the border but she wonders why do the entertainers do that. I think she is just too pure.

Terrier-chan bandit trio responds to my words and gaze at me. After confirming that, I bit my finger.
The blood overflows from the wound, and the sweet taste spreads in my mouth.
While I remembered some unnecessary feelings, I released my finger from my mouth and speak the words.

“Blood Arms, ‘​​rope’ .”

The skill to change blood into weapons. It seems that the rope is not exactly a weapon, but the restraint seems to be interpreted as a weapon. Because my skill level is max, I can make it, I will gladly use it
Lightly tie a rope made to be long enough so that it does not get too tight around Neguseo’s neck.

“Are you OK? Neguseo”
“No problem.”
“Well then, Kuzuha-chan, would you pass this rope to the three of them?”
“Oh, yes.”

Talking over the edge of the rope, Kuzha will relay to the front.
Even though the four of them don’t know what my plan is, they still grap the rope properly.

“So, what do you want to do?”
“I think you should avoid combat as much as possible, right?”
“This is long rope, did you make it ?”

As Terrier-chan says, there are signs people getting closer. This rope is for several people, not just one person.
I also do not know how he perceived it and how the people who are heading here have grasped our existence.
But if possible, I want to avoid conflict. It is a troublesome. We are crossing the border by moutain to avoid the trouble in the first place.

“O Darkness, cover us”

So, I use magic to avoid it.
Dark magic. I exercised magic skill at level 1.
It is the skill I had grasped the effect from the begining. I did not use it until now because I had no chance to use it.
The effect of the this skill level is very simple. Make darkness. That’s it.
Things like black mist overflow from my palm and flow to the surroundings. As how I see it, I have dyed my surroundings with darkness and I’m still not stopping yet.
Just a little time, everything was covered in darkness.

“Arge-san, this is …”
“It’s okay, just making it hard to see”

Normally, even it is night now, visual is really bad. Forest in the time of dusk where only a few moonlight can reach. Terrier-chan bandit trio, Kuzuha-chan and Neguseo still can see. I can see the scenery almost the same as at the daytime thanks to my vampire eyes. We are a group with a good sight at night.
But the darkness I make now is dark enough that its impossible to see the surrounding.

Only I can see.

To be precise, only vampires that can see through it. I’m the only member who is a vampire here now and I can only see through this darkness without problems.
The reason why I still can see is the race characteristic of the vampire. I do not know the detail, but the vampire seems to have settled the magical power of darkness, probably a blessing.
Now the people who are chasing us will lose sight of us. While continuing the dark magic, I send words to everyone while moving to the front.

“Well then, I will lead you, please follow me without taking off the rope.”
“Wait”
“What is it, Terrier-chan?”

Is it dissatisfication or a question? When I looked at Terrier-chan, he looked straight at my eyes in this darkness. He doesn’t look at me blindly. Terrier-chan‘s eyes are properly looking toward me. Maybe he can sense me somehow

“… Maybe you can see it?”
“Well…”

I can tell them ‘I can see it’ , but I do not feel like explaining the reason. His attitude was like still in doubt.
I do not care about why, so it does not matter if I do not feel like talking.
Terrier-chan bandit trio nod with each other, look like they decided to listen to me. How can they reach to an agreement without visual.

“The entertainer is amazing, isn’t it?” (Arge)
“Who is an entertainer, wait a moment” (T.N: this time only Terrier talk)

It seems like he wants to do something. Terrier-chan pulled out the dagger from his bosom. It is not just one, the glow that appeared from his bosom are at least three of them. 
Terrier-chan threw three dagger with a casual movement as if he was deciding to do so from the beginning. Without vision, he shouldn’t know the direction to throw, but his throwing is accuracy. 
Each of the three daggers flies through the gaps of the trees, in a different direction. Without even looking and then Terrier-chan grabbed the rope again.

“Let’s go”
“Terrier-chan, what have you done just now?”
“Those daggers will explode after a while, it’s a diversion to catch the attention of the border guards, let’s go quickly.”
“Ah, yes”

I’m holding the edge of the rope and the back was pushed, so I started walking and lead everyone.
If you can see it, I think Terrier-chan is the best, but he seems to leave it to me.
I was wondering if he might get angry at me for denying and disturbing them when they were trying to fight, but they rather listening to me obediently.
Their name are weird and they are violent, but I don’t hate people like them.
While thinking that the mountain road is hard to walk, I walk through the darkness and lead everyone.
We almost reach the end of the mountain road. We went through the darkness with opposite way from the flashy explosive sounds behind us.

    • “Please wait, three of you” i think this sounds better “Please wait, the three of you” (if it is me just ignore that)
      “she understands the meaning of hiding and crossing the border but she wonder why the entertainers is doing that.” should be “he understands the meaning of hiding and crossing the border but she wonders why do the entertainers do that.”
      “Terrier-chan bandit trio responds to my words and gazes at me.” i think the ‘gazes’ don’t ne ‘s’ cause umm its done by 3 people
      “The blood overflows from the wound, and the sweet taste spreads in the mouth. ” should be ‘my mouth’ cause it sounds better
      “While I remembered some unnecessary feelings, I released my fingers from the mouth and speak the words.” why ‘fingers’ with ‘s’ when you use no ‘s’ a sentence before
      “Skill to change blood into weapons.” sounds better if it is “A[ or ‘the’ but i think it better if it is uding ‘A’] skill to change bloods into weapons.”
      “would you pass this rope to three of them?” i think its better if the word ‘the’ is added before the ‘three of them’
      “Even though the four of them don’t know what my plan is, they still grasped the rope properly.” some people could confused because of the word ‘grasped’ so i think its better it is ‘grab’ or you can use ‘grasp’ even tho some people don’t know that vocab (including my sister here)
      “As Terrier-chan says, people’s signs are getting closer. This rope is for several people, not alone. ” sounds better if it is”As Terrier-chan says, there are signs people getting closer. This rope is for several people, not just one person.”
      “I have dyed my neighborhood while I see it, yet I can not stop. ” should be “I have dyed my surroundings while I see it, yet I can not stop. ” but what does the “while I see it, yet I can not stop.” means? i don’t understand it that much.
      “Normally, even it is night now, visual is bad. Forest of the dusk where only a few moonlight reaches.” should be “Normally, even it is night now, visual is really bad. Forest of the dusk where only a few moonlight reaches.” and what does the “Forest of the dusk” means? if it is not a name that it should be changed into “in the forest in the time of dusk where only few moonlight reaches[or you can change it into ‘can reach’].”
      “I can see the scenery which is almost the same as the daytime thank to my vampire eyes.” should be ” I can see the scenery almost the same as at the daytime thanks to my vampire eyes.”
      “But the darkness I made now is dark enough that impossible see.” sounds better if it is “But the darkness I make now is dark enough that its impossible to see the surrounding.”
      “To be precise, only vampires can see. I’m the only member who is vampire here now and I can only see this darkness without problems.” should be “To be precise, only vampires that can see through it. I’m the only member who is a vampire here now and I can only see this darkness without problems.” what does this “I can only see this darkness without problems.” means? is it that she can see it just fine or is it only she that can see if it is only her then it should be “only I can see in this darkness without any problems.”
      “Now the people who are chasing us will lose sight. While continuing the dark magic, send words to everyone while moving to the front.” should be “Now the people who are chasing us will lose sight of us. While continuing the dark magic, I send words to everyone while moving to the front.”
      “Is it dissatisfied or even a question?” should be “Is it dissatisfication or a question?”
      “Terrier-chan‘s eyes are properly look toward here.” should be “Terrier-chan‘s eyes are properly looking toward me” [or ‘here’ if you want to keep that bu i think it sounds better with ‘me’]
      “Terrier-chan bandit trio nod with each other, look they decided to listen to me.” should be “Terrier-chan bandit trio nod with each other, looks like they decided to listen to me.” but welp its just how i feel on this one because its sounds better this way if it dos not mean that umm i don’t know
      “It seems like he want to do something.” the ‘want’ use ‘s’ remmember if it is just one person it use ‘s’ and if there are many don’t use ‘s’
      “the glow that appeared from the bosom is at least three.” should be “the glow that appeared from his bosom are at least three of them.[or ‘at least there are three of them.’]”
      “Without sight, he shouldn’t know the direction to throw, but his throwing is accuracy.” kinda sounds weird (especially the last part) and the ‘sight’ i think it sounds better with ‘vision’
      “Without even look, Terrier-chan grabbed the rope again,” should be “Without even looking and then Terrier-chan grabbed the rope again.”
      “Terrier, what have you been doing just now?” sounds better if it is “Terrier, what have you done just now?” or should i say but its still sounds weird to me
      “I was wondering if he might get angry with me deny and disturb them when they trying to fight, but they rather obediently listen to me. ” should be “I was wondering if he might get angry at me for denying and disturbing [i think you should choose just one of them or you can use the word ‘stopping’] them when they were trying to fight, but they rather listening to me obediently. ”
      “Their name are strange and violent, but those are who we can not hate after all. ” i think the word ‘weird’ is more suitable and it should be “Their name are weird and they are violent, but they are people who we can’t hate after all. ” its sounds better but the meaning might change in the last part cause i don’t know about the raw so its up to you about that last part
      “The end of the mountain road is almost over. We went through the darkness against the flashy explosive sound behind us.” should be “We almost reach the end of the mountain road. We went through the darkness opposite of [still sounds weird in this part] the flashy explosive sounds behind us.”

  3. Since darkness is pretty much what vampires sre blessed with, I wonder why loligramps didn’t top it out, there’s probably more worthlesss skills that can be reduced instead. Perhaps blood magic is strong enough?

    • Shadow is really good for attack.
      But Arge ask for defend and useful skills first.
      Shadown lvl 1 make a darkness scene.
      lvl 2-3 can use shadown bind => im-mobie your target for a certain time.
      lvl 4-6 increase time binding and can make shadow clones.
      I don’t know more after that though.

      • Oh, seems like it’s a crowd control magic, to bind your enemy and control them, kinda assassin-esque. I don’t think she needs that, haha. Perhaps she can make blood clones and we already know that she can bind people with her blood magic, so it seems unnecessary. Depends on what shows up for the last couple of levels, though 😀

        • Spoiler:

          Blood doesn’t really effect against
          other vampire but shadow is.
          And Shadow can use together with Blood make a hybrid crowd control + damage attack.
          Shadow is a better magic for Arge to capture target.
          But Blood is better for attack (Arge never attack anyway)

        • Ah, I see. Perhaps there will be a way to level up stuff later on? People don’t get born with their skills, after all, would be seriously scary if babies popped out ready for combat with level 8 in sword arts… Ahaha.

        • Yes, they need train a lot to level up.
          Even other vampires live hundreds of years still only reach lvl 7.
          Chrome is a special human, she was a gift skill since birth, even she only teens but she have 3 level 8 skills. Maybe that why she think she is the best. She enjoy battle with strong so she choose to be a mercenary / hired killer.

        • In other words, the cheat she’s got is way more than what I initially thought. Seems leveling up through practice is a bit far-fetched for a lazy vampire like her, perhaps there’ll be a shortcut of some kind, or she will just not level it up at all, haha.
