“Oh, I never knew humans can fly like that?”
My kouhai has now become a man of the skies (literally). [T/N: This should be a joke/wordplay about Kaido being an empty man and a man of the air. I can’t translate the joke properly. Sorry the English language can’t accept Japanese puns.]
“It was the same with you, right?” (Fusio)
“I think I flew higher during my training, right?”
“Is that so?” (Fusio)
At that time, I decided to ignore the words of Instructor Fusio, who said, “I was a little rusty with my technique at the time.”
Then, we heard the sound of a body colliding with something metallic.
It’s crude for background music, but between me and the instructor, this sound is just right.
“I’m a warrior, if I think a little better before swinging my sword, I’ll have less chance of failing and reduce wasting energy.”
“You don’t have enough experience to know that, you see, people often say, there will be another chance.” (Fusio)
“I don’t think there will be another chance after a serious fight with you.”
“I don’t think there’s going to be a next time if that happens.” (Fusio)
If we become hostile, he would seriously do it.
I believe that it’s soaked through my skin.
“Then Kaido and I are thankful. Because there is going to be another chance.”
In fact, this kind of interaction with those who are above you in everything is an asset in many ways, even if it is painful.
That’s what it means to have another chance.
“That’s right, I’m happy if I a warrior challenges me and gains experience.” (Fusio)
Anyway, it’s a strange conversation.
Kaido is seriously swinging around, slashing, in front of us. However, the content of my conversation with instructor Fusio should have never happened in the first place. However, this place is definitely more comfortable than my previous workplace.
I feel that the air has become a little brighter ever since Kaido came in.
“Ah? Did I overdo it?” (Kio)
Apparently, I was a little absorbed with my conversation with Instructor Fusio, but I suddenly noticed that the training ground was quiet.
The appearance of instructor Kio who is poking Kaido with a sword, checking if he is alive or not is surreal. It is as if he decided to cut his body neatly like pulling out a killing blow then checking the collapsed Kaido.
The person being poked doesn’t move, no joke, so I run up to him.
It’s a living example of how people can’t do anything when they’re over their limits.
“Ora! Wake up Kaido.”
However, if I allow it, I will run out of time, so I wait for Instructor Kio to leave before pouring the contents of what I have on my hand over Kaido.
“What the!? I feel like I saw something that I shouldn’t see yet!? And… Ahhh! My whole body hurts!” (Kaido)
When I woke Kaido up, after he fainted he had an expression that would win a contest for the dumbest face. Splashing him with water from a bucket, he seemed better than I expected.
Similar to me, it seems that humans are surprisingly sturdy.
“Be quiet and drink this.”
Even so, he had gone as far as he could.
So I took one out of the holder on my waist and shoved the potion into Kaido’s mouth since he can only move his facial muscles.
He gulped it down with a pained look, but this was a fantasy product.
The potion heals Kaido’s body as it gradually seeps into his body.
“Phew! The potion works great, I would’ve wanted it my time at my previous company.” (Kaido)
“I don’t want a death march of overtime after drinking a potion.”
I land a tsukkomi with Kaido’s words. A few seconds after giving Kaido the potion, the pain receded from his body, and he used his upper body to sit up from his knees.
It’s too unpleasant to imagine the combination of stacks of planning documents, the light from the computer screen, and a potion in the mouth of my spiritually depleted face, even if there are no longer any dark circles under my eyes.
“It’s just about time to do your turn over, next up is Instructor Fusio’s training.”
“…so magic after physical?” (Kaido)
The clock was ticking down to the end of the afternoon training.
As soon as Kaido learns that a magical nightmare is waiting after a physical nightmare session, his expression that should have been refreshed by the potion changes to a dispirited one.
“You deserve it. It’s because you wanted to be a magic swordsman, a troublesome position. It’s difficult to make a compound profession. If you want to get it right from the start, you have to do at least this much. In addition to the two iron swords and leather equipment as initial equipment, I negotiated for the lowest level of magic medium, just be thankful that you were provided with it.”
In simple terms, a magical medium is something like a microphone.
It’s like when you speak normally, then if you pass it through a speaker through a microphone, your voice will become louder and you can hear it even from far away.
At the same time, magic can be used without a magic medium, but the power will be improved and the efficiency will also increase after using a magic medium.
The one I gave Kaido was the lowest grade, so it was more of a teaching tool to help him get a feel for using magic, but it was still useful.
I’ve heard that it takes a lot of time and effort to make a magic medium, so even the lowest level costs a fair amount.
The price goes up even more if it’s for a hybrid occupation.
Therefore, Kaido, who was given a pendant-type one, would be in trouble if he did not receive proper training in order to meet the proper level.
“I just thought it looked cool.” (Kaido)
“You can change your mind right now, but which job should you concentrate on?”
“No, if I give up here, I’ll never be popular!” (Kaido)
However, when I heard that the reason he chose this profession was that it was cool, I almost dropped my cigarette.
Even today’s elementary school students would be able to come up with a more decent reason for wanting to work here, but I’m going to assume that this is one of his strengths.
In a corner of my mind, I’ve already decided that there’s no need to take any other action since I’m running out of time, I don’t care and so I stand up.
“Oh, that’s right, senpai.” (Kaido)
“What is it?”
“You’re going to add more members, right?” (Kaido)
“Yeah, you know, you and I are not enough, we have a problem with our strength. If possible, I plan to add more members in the future.”
I wanted to tell him to stop that, Kaido suddenly requesting something silly as if it was not.
“Well then, please increase the number of girls!” (Kaido)
“I mean, if it’s just us guys, there’s no one to show off to! So, if there are cute girls, the motivation will be different!” (Kaido)
I could tell that he had a lot of energy, but he still gives me a headache.
I wanted to take a break for the time being.
I slightly regret having scouted this guy, just a little.
Well, he is still not a bad guy, so I should just forget about it.
“Hmm, I see your point. I’ll give it some thought, but I think our break is over. Instructor Fusio, it seems that we are ready to go. Please.”
For now, the best thing to do is to beat the word “woman” out of his head.
“Kakakaka, I understand.” (Fusio)
Instructor Fusio, stood behind Kaido, gently putting his dry bony fingers over Kaido’s shoulders. It was like a scene from a horror movie where a monster suddenly appears from behind.
“Oh, Jiro. How far should I do?” (Fusio)
“With your full force.”
“Kakakakaka, I’m happy to oblige.” (Fusio)
“How could you!?” (Kaido)
“Kaido, live a little.”
“What are you talking about?” (Kaido)
“Well, we don’t have much time. I’ll get started right away. I’ll have you experience all the attributes by the end of the day. “
“That’s too spartan!? Senpai help–” (Kaido)
“Well, I better get ready to enter the dungeon. I’ve been coming home late lately, so I think I’ll be home early today.”
“You’re ignoring me!?” (Kaido)
“You can still afford to look the other way, that’s great. I think I’m going to get serious.” (Fusio)
The sound of an explosion was immediately heard, but it was probably okay.
Despite the flashy sounds, I could see the silhouette of Kaido, who was running at full force within in the smoke cloud, so I don’t have to worry about him being unable to recover from a single blow.
But still, I was a little worried, so I looked a little at Instructor Fusio, who was unleashing some nefarious magic with his toy wand.
“Come on, come on! This are Flame Spirits!” (Fusio)
“Fire!? The fire is chasing me!” (Kaido)
“Kakakakakaka. How about water? Lightning? Wind? A curse? Gravity? There’s so much more!” (Fusio)
Instructor Fusio’s tension is high.
But still, he doesn’t seem to have forgotten the purpose of the training, so I guess it’s okay.
For now, as insurance.
“Instructor Kio, this is a recovery potion. Please take care of the rest.”
“Yeah! Leave it to me and I’ll make him a good swordsman at the end of this!” (Kio)
“Just don’t leave behind any trauma, okay?”
“Don’t worry, I’ll create a man who can overcome trauma!” (Kio)
Instructor Kio gives me a thumbs up with a huge smile despite the worries I have.
So it is confirmed that he will have a trauma?
I thought about it, but I couldn’t say such a thing even if I wanted to.
“I see, I’m looking forward to tomorrow. Now, I’m off to the dungeon.”
“Challenge me next time!” (Kio)
“I will, someday.”
Since I handed over the recovery potion, Kaido would be able to overcome the training of instructor Fusio, who is equipped with a stick that will seriously hunt him down.
I left the training room before giving instructor Kio a bow.
I assumed that Kaido’s scream, which I heard just as the door was closing, was proof that he was still alive, so I thought about the problem at hand.
“A new member, what should I do?”
It’s good that the number of members has increased since Kaido came in, but with me as the vanguard and him as both the vanguard and the middle guard, the balance is not quite right.
I’m sure we’ll need to add one or two more people after all.
“A woman. I feel nervous.”
I’m not sure what to say, but considering Kaido’s desperate need for training, I’d like to grant him his wish.
I’m not sure if I can choose a gender, let alone a physical appearance, considering the reality of recruiting.
“I’ll just have to take it easy, focus my mind, replenish my items, and take on the dungeon.”
This is a complete series of game terms, but what I’m going to do is work.
I’ll concentrate on that and not think about anything else.
Suddenly, the image of the dancing girl I met in the park the other day comes to mind, but I was without my magic probing detection at the time, so I don’t know if she has any magical aptitude, and I doubt I’ll ever see her again.
I discarded the thoughts that came to my mind and went back to work.
