A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 12.1
Litty Receives Evaluation
Two gulfs. Normally, a normal person would cower at the sight of them, but not Litty. She was watching the situation from the grassy area and was planning her attack.
Gulfs had lower ranks than salamanders, but they moved faster. Even if she attacked from this distance, they’d be able to notice her and dodge in time.
If that were the case, how about a little closer?
“Ah…! Not good!”
The gulfs noticed Litty and both of them fearlessly sprinted towards her one after another. As they got closer to Litty, the faster one among them pounced (jumped) on her.
Litty stepped forward and bent down slightly to dodge its attack. In that small-time span, Litty made a sideways strike to the other one running on the ground and was about to bite her. Fresh blood splashed out of its gaping mouth from the slash.
After landing, the first gulf lunged at Litty from behind.
Noticing its movement, Litty promptly gave a high jump, enough to be a few feet above the gulf’s head. Still high in the air, she changed her position and attacked with full force from above, directly ripping open the gulf’s back with her sword.
“Ah, I was able to handle them…”
I was worried about whether I could perform well against a demon which I had never seen other than in books. Although gulf was only a 5th level demon, the sense of accomplishment was pleasant.
However, I did need to reflect on some things. This time, there were only two demons and their rank was also not high, so I decided to hunt them to test my skills. However, there would be times when a larger number of demons would gather in a group, so I needed to be very careful when dealing with them.
After all, if they noticed me and attacked, I would be in big trouble. For the upcoming and more dangerous adventures, I need to improve even more.
After processing the gulfs, I only took back the parts I needed. While I was exploring the area, evening came, and the first day of the exam was coming to an end
But the night could be even more unpredictable. Not wanting the risk of becoming the bait for gulf in her sleep, Litty decided to take a nap.
Solo activities were unavoidable since there was no one to take turns keeping watch.
Three days was longer than she expected, and even though it was less stressful compared to her time spent in the Demon Forest for a week, it was still a laboring struggle.
Litty laid down early and closed her eyes.
On the morning of the second day. Fortunately, no one attacked her while she was taking short naps throughout the night, but she did not sleep well. While feeling slightly sluggish, Litty suddenly wondered how Roma was doing.
Roma must be having the same trouble as her. Besides, Litty did not trust the examiner, Rogai.
He reminded her of Aldis from Yggdrasia. Even if she survived, it was not certain that she would be allowed to pass the exam.
If she survived the three days, and he did not acknowledge her success…
“I’ll definitely, definitely make him admit it.”
She always maintained a positive attitude, but when it came to her goal, she was too steadfast.
I have to become an adventurer in this town, accumulate funds, and return home at least once.
Litty’s heart tightened a little at the thought of having to say goodbye to that old couple someday. Meetings and partings were inevitable if you were to make a living as an adventurer.
Litty decided that it wasn’t a time to get sentimental about such things, and went for another walk around the area.
She was more vigilant of her surroundings, taking advantage of the lessons she learned from yesterday’s encounter with the gulf. If she found any enemy, she would try to attack them from behind.
She did not hesitate to kill the demons, even though they had done nothing to her. In this wilderness, everyone was struggling to survive, but being humans and demons, one must die for the survival of another.
If the gulf continued to increase in number in this area, the forestry business by lumberjacks would cease to exist. Thus, for humans, it was necessary to keep their population in check.
Simply put, this was just a matter of survival of the fittest.
Litty, who lived deep in the forest, understood this.
