Mile Chapter 74: Awaken
Weiln stepped in suddenly.
(My cute little sister’s party is very popular, but that is not the issue.
The life of my beloved little sister is at risk every day if she keeps being a hunter.
I don’t want her to continue working as a hunter.
And, to avoid scratching her cute face even if we make a mistake, I will aim at her torso sideways) (Weiln’s inner thought)
Gī ~in! (SFX)
“What’s the matter, Eldest Ani-sama?” (Maevis)
(It’s impossible for her to receive my slash with one hand.
At least, Maevis 8 months ago wouldn’t be able to prevent even 70% to 80% the speed and power of that slash.
Why can she receive it easily?) (Weiln’s inner thought)
Gin~ gin gi~n! (SFX)
“Im~… impossible …” (Weiln) (Ba… bakana)
(There are a few people in our clan’s knights that can prevent my three consecutive blows.
And to think it was easily repelled) (Weiln’s inner thought)
“Impossible…” (Weiln) (Ari en)
Maevis talks to Weiln who makes a foolish face.
“Eldest Ani-sama, it wasn’t only you who works hard and is strengthening on a daily basis.
I also have been training with people far more exceeding Chichiue or Ani-sama’s power and speed every day” (Maevis)
“What …?” (Weiln)
And Maevis states the finishing blow.
I was told that you are the strongest in the territory because right now Chichiue due to his age doesn’t have his normal physical strength anymore.
But actually, Eldest Ani-sama, your strength in our territory is only the second best.” (Maevis)
“Who is the best then?” (Weiln)
And then Maevis points to her face with the thumb of her left hand.
Weiln looked at Maevis while stunned and can’t say anything.
No matter how much special training Mile gives, Maevis can’t get too much strength in just one night.
Mile thought that it will be difficult for Maevis to win against her oldest brother with decent means.
So this time is an exception. Mile decided to refrain from using it but right now she has no other choice.
Yes, it is a nanomachine.
Mile called out to nanomachine and asked questions in her head.
(Why can’t Maevis use magic?) (Mile’s inner thought)
The nanomachine is really happy that Mile is to rely on it after a long absence.
“E? Actually, she can use it” (Nano)
(What!?) (Mile’s inner thought)
“There are various reasons for those who can not use magic.
Maevis falls under the 「low effective thought wave」
In other words, there is a problem with the ability to radiate thought waves outside the body.
Apparently, many clans seem to be in the same state, so it’s genetic …” (Nano)
(Then you can help her use magic?) (Mile’s inner thought)
“No, because there is a problem with the function to radiate the thought waves outside the body” (Nano)
(… can she radiate in the body then?) (Mile’s inner thought)
“That’s right. Isn’t that obvious?” (Nano)
(Ahhhh, be quiet!) (Mile’s inner thought)
Then, as a result of hearing various questions from the nanomachine, Mile finally understands everything.
For Maevis, the output of the thought wave is weak, and the part which radiates it, the one corresponding to the antenna in the radio wave is not functioning.
Therefore, it is impossible for Maevis to release the thought wave out of her body.
That’s why she can’t use any magic.
However, even without an antenna, a signal still flows in the circuit.
In other words, although weak, the thought waves are spreading throughout her body.
(If there is a nanomachine inside her body, they will react.) (Mile’s inner thought)
“Normally, we nanomachines don’t stay in organisms…
It’s uncomfortable” (Nano)
I could understand the feelings of the nanomachines when It said so.
Besides, there’re instructions for them from the Creator to stay out of the body of the organism.
“However, there are several cases where nanomachines exist in the body of an organism.
The 1st case is when people use magic.
In order to express the magic effect in the living body such as healing magic, it was necessary for the nanomachines to invade into an organism body.
But they will go out of the body after they finish the role.
And Maevis can’t use any magic in the first place.
Besides, the healing magic has poor reaction efficiency of the nanomachine because it takes time for nanomachines to invade the body.
So there will be a moment lag to use magic when others use healing magic on yourself.
By the way, because your thought has a close distance and a direct connection state, it is natural that nanomachine will give priority to them.
This is recognized as 『Magic resistance』by humans. ” (Nano)
By the way, what Pauline does against that B rank Hunter is almost the same.
By imaging the spell, Pauline un-directedly ordered the nanomachine to invade his body.
But that hunter doesn’t realize it to send the thought to change Pauline’s order.
Besides, Pauline’s wavelength is stronger.
“And the second case is 「nanomachine natural invasion」
It’s the invasion of nanomachines into the body in a natural form due to breathing, eating, and drinking, etc.
In this case, the inhaled nanomachine will try to escape out of the body immediately.
But since nanomachine exists in the air with sufficient density.
It means that a constant number of nanomachines are always present from the oral cavity to the lungs.
If these nanomachines are received a direct connection thought wavelength, although the effect is limited due the number is small …” (Nano)
(But it still reacts, isn’t it ?) (Mile’s inner thought)
And Mile thought
(If we can’t use nanomachines outside the body, then I can teach her a simple reinforcement method.
Maevis will be able to use it if there is a slightly existing nanomachine in the body.
And for Maevis who adores the knight…
Yes, there was only one.
It is physical strengthening magic) (Mile’s inner thought)
After telling Mile that 「I am planning tomorrow’s simulated game and get a share of the revenue from opening a store via a commercial guild」
Pauline went to talk to the branch of the Hunter Guild and the commercial guild.
Because Mile was worried, she asked Rena go together.
Only Mile and Maevis remained in the Stadium.
Thinking about it again, Maevis didn’t receive many benefits from Mile compared to Rena and Pauline’s power leveling.
Well, Mile did teach Maevis “godspeed sword” though.
But that is the result of Maevis hard work from continuing to train with Mile as her opponent.
It’s rude to Maevis to say that is power leveling.
It’s only the result of her desperate efforts not to get left behind too much from the others in the group for more than half a year.
Still, her performance as C rank hunter didn’t rise as much as Rena and Pauline whose ability improved rapidly because of Mile’s teaching.
Rena’s fire magic, Pauline’s curative magic are like B ranks, and possibly just as close to A rank.
But considering their knowledge, experience, applied skill, speed, body technique, etc. Rena and Pauline are only about the upper rank of B rank.
Meanwhile, Maevis’ sword technique was higher than C or lower than B.
Even that skill named “God Speed Sword 1.4 times”
It only means Maevis is 1.4 times faster compared to the time before she learned from Mile.
But originally, Maevis doesn’t have so much speed.
Even if she got a bit faster, that was all she can do.
If her opponents are the bandits, she can fight with several of them at the same time.
But when she fights with soldiers or knights, it will be different.
Last time they fought soldiers, Mile had put a pointed pebble in the opponent’s shoes or even the shoe sole was scraped diagonally.
And even if there was only one opponent, if it was a skilled soldier or knight, it will be hard for Maevis to win.
So Mile decided to lend a hand to Maevis who was struggling with her lack of power until now.
“Uhm, about that, Maevis …, tomorrow, you must win by any cost, aren’t you?” (Mile)
“Yes, that’s why I am doing special training now, aren’t I?” (Maevis)
Maevis replied to Mile with a dubious face.
“Well, actually, there’s a way for you to win, but …” (Mile)
“What! Is that true? Please tell me, how can I do that!?” (Maevis)
Mile is quite taken aback with Maevis’ vigor.
“Well, that’s the way to strengthen the human body, but that might be against to the pride of Maevis as a knight …” (Mile)
“I don’t care!
This is my last chance to chase my dream.
Anyway, if it can help me get stronger, I will accept it somehow!
Well, please tell me!
How can I do it?” (Maevis)
Mile thought that Maevis might refuse with something like
「It’s a cowardly measure as a swordsman
it isn’t my real power, I can’t accept it」
But looks like she worries over nothing.
And Mile explained to Maevis how to strengthen the body.
Mile thought it will be troublesome to explain everything.
So she only told Maevis that Maevis can control her body with her own will power as the 「secret of human body strengthening」
In that case, it might be easy for Maevis to accept it as a skill acquired by training.
Maevis stared at Mile with sparkling eyes and listened to every word.
After the explanation, it is practical training.
The balance of strengthening, the balance of power, grasp of speed.
Maevis kept falling over and getting scratched many times after failing to grasp the feeling.
And Mile had healed her every single time.
And when the surrounding began to get dark, Pauline and Rena came back,
They saw Maevis with full of confidence and smile happily.
Ah… I hate explanation. Way too long and many hard words.
I’m sure I make a lot of mistakes this time.
I’m sorry, please deal with it for now.
