A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 19.1
Litty, Getting Involved
The very next day in the Heavy Warrior Guild, the difficulty level of the mock battle between Instructor Gonza and Litty had increased to the next stage.
This could no longer be called a normal mock battle, but a real match. The expressions and power shown by Instructor Gonza and Litty were scary to the point that even the instructors who had stopped them last time didn’t dare to interfere.
Above all, Instructor Gonza, himself, was very enthusiastic about it. Even though an axe was Gonza’s preferred weapon, at the moment, he was facing Litty with a spear.
Several times into the battle Litty was able to force her instructor to retreat despite being a rookie.
“Kuh! Come at me again!” (Instructor Gonza)
Spear Thrust, a skill suddenly used by Litty, even though no one had taught her yet.
‘Did she use it unknowingly, or did she learn it by observing?’, everyone wondered. However, the sound of the clash was loud enough to make everyone easily forget about it.
Gonza, caught by surprise, showed an opening.
“Hah, very well. Now, let me show you how to use a spear! You use it like this! Hundred Thrusts!” (Instructor Gonza)
Saying so, Instructor Gonza unleashed an even more advanced skill, one that he would normally not use against an apprentice.
With a loud shout, the instructors tried to stop Gonza, but it was already too late. After grazing Litty’s cheek, he continued to strike her in the chest and other parts of her body for most of the attacks.
“Ugh, ugh…” (Litty)
“You idiot, Gonza, you even have to use that skill!” (Instructor 1)
Litty almost fell to her knees, but she still didn’t collapse. Seeing Litty in such a sorry state, Gonza finally came back to his senses.
‘I overdid it.’ Gonza thought.
Guilt started to engulf Gonza’s entire being, but Litty didn’t seem to show any resentment towards him.
On the contrary, it was surprising that she managed to block more than half of Instructor Gonza’s serious and advanced skill.
“I’m sorry. Are you okay? But that heavy armor really did help, didn’t it?” (Instructor Gonza)
“Yes, yes. Um, can we continue?” (Litty)
“Well, that was my fault. No, well, I did have my reasons, you see… we’re going to start preparing for the final exam soon.” (Instructor Gonza)
“Let’s be clear. You have long past the level of an apprentice. However, you’ve only been wielding a spear for a while now, remember?”(Instructor Gonza)
Just like Litty, there were other apprentices who had later moved from the Swordsman’s Guild to the Heavy Warrior’s Guild every year after completing their training.
Gonza wondered what Swordsman Guild’s Training Center was up to for making Litty’s training last so much longer, knowing how fast she developed.
Instructor Gonza mistakenly vented his anger in the mock battle, partly because of the fact that he ended up being driven into a corner by Litty and could not find a place to let it out. But in light of that, Instructor Gonza decided to be true to himself and talked to Litty.
“You have talent. It usually takes years for someone to acquire a title, but you were able to do it in such a short period of time. I know that it’s not good to be arrogant if one wants to be successful in their life, but if you don’t have enough confidence, then you’ll not be able to accomplish much.” (Instructor Gonza)
“Confidence, huh?” (Litty)
“Yes, being humble is good but confidence is also very important. Oops, I’m getting a little preachy now.” (Instructor Gonza)
“I have talent. Instructor Gonza said I have talent…” (Litty)
No one could understand how Litty felt at that moment, who started muttering some self-motivation to herself.
Instructor Gonza left the training center, leaving the mess to other instructors.
Instructor Denyl took over Instructor Gonza’s place, who went to ask permission for Litty’s final exam. Denyl had jet-black skin, with a height taller than Gonza.
“If Gonza ended up like that, I have to admit that you certainly have what it takes to be one of us. By the way, spears are good, but would you like to practice using an axe?” (Instructor Denyl)
“I’d love to!” (Litty)
“Haha… Good, an axe is Gonza’s preferred weapon. It also has different quirks than a sword or a spear, which makes it interesting.” (Instructor Denyl)
“I’m looking forward to it!” (Litty)
It was Denyl’s policy to develop apprentices in a way that they could grow as much as possible.
When Litty held the one-handed axe that Denyl brought with him, she was filled with curiosity.
The axe was heavier than a sword, requiring greater skills and strength with each blow, and Litty felt it firsthand.
“Axes are heavy and hard to aim. You have to remember all the skills that take advantage of its weight.” (Instructor Denyl)
“So I am going to fight with an axe and a shield?” (Litty)
“There are also two-handed axes, but for now, let’s only use a one-handed one. Before that, try to get used to using a shield.” (Instructor Denyl)
“Axe, huh. It seems like a very nice weapon.” (Litty)
Litty had no fear of the unknown. Instructor Denyl also thought of Litty as a mysterious girl.
When Litty entered training mode, she quickly mastered the basic movements and skills just by seeing his moves. It was the same with Instructor Gonza’s training, but Denyl’s amusement with Litty was only at the start of the training and was soon replaced with wonder after being in contact with her for a few lessons.
‘Does she even need an instructor?’ (Instructor Denyl)
“The skill of shell-splitting is effective against demons that move slowly and have characteristics of being hard to break.” (Instructor Denyl)
“If I swing it around this way, it’s going to have a lot more range to attack!” (Litty)
“Yes… That’s right. It is important to find the right uses for the skill.” (Instructor Denyl)
He didn’t even teach her how to use the skill, as she could immediately derive advanced uses from the basics. Regardless of how bizarre it was, she would soon get the hang of new skills.
Instructor Denyl also ended up recommending Litty to take the final exam.
