I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 176
Chapter 4-22. Promotion Exam – Reizen and Alena
Reizen was still not moving, but was keeping a watchful eye on his surroundings.
It was understandable that he would act in this way.
In any case, it is impossible for Reizen to make a move because he cannot see the opponent.
However, Reizen has an extraordinary defense.
No matter how strong the attack is, Reizen can repel it, so he is probably waiting for the other party to attack him.
In other words, what Reizen aims for is a counter-attack.
He probably intends to grapple the opponent or launch some kind of attack, anticipating from where the opponent has been hitting him.
Hmmm………It’s a little disheartening to see him act this way from his earlier brashness,…… but it’s a good move to understand the situation and use his abilities to the fullest,…….
Vid leaps, and the weight of the sword increases as it follows the gravity.
I thought that he must have received some instructions from the guild master, as he unleashed a merciless blow at Reizen, who did not move at all, but unfortunately, the blow was repelled immediately.
As soon as the wooden sword hit Reizen, it snapped off at the base.
“There you areeee !!!!”
The sword from the broken part appears unnaturally.
It seems that only the objects worn on Vid’s body become invisible, and those that have separated from Bid are no longer invisible.
After grasping the sound and the location of the broken wooden sword, Reizen jumped toward Vid’s direction and grabbed him by the chest.
Reizen grabs Vid by the chest and pulls him downwards with brute force, and then pushes him down by bringing one knee around Vid’s back.
As he fell to the ground, he slammed his knee into Vid’s body.
Vid was hit by a powerful blow, and all the air in his lungs was expelled, causing him to pass out.
As soon as he passed out, his invisibility seemed to be deactivated, and he was finally visible.
“… That definitely hurt, didn’t it? You okay, Vid?…”
Maria, the guildmaster, was also a little pale after seeing the obvious overkill.
Certainly, that was a bit too much, but after all, Vid was really serious about what he was doing, so it cannot be helped.
It would be impolite to go easy on an opponent who was really serious in his attack.
“Wa- Eh!? What did he do!?”
In an instant, Shadow Eye’s captain was defeated, causing his subordinate, Tiara, to raise her voice in shock.
I think it is definitely unreasonable not to be surprised after being shown something like that, but Tiara, who is a stealth unit, shouldn’t have raised her voice for such a thing. ……
Now, the last one left is Alena.
Perhaps the guildmaster might have something to say to that fellow, so she might do something strange, but at any rate, with Alena’s skills, it shouldn’t be a problem.
“Hey, Maria. Move on!”
“… Ha! Er, eeh! Ti- Tiara… please…?”
I don’t know the state of Tiara, as she is still invisible, but only I know exactly what she looks like.
She is very stiff.
Or perhaps the most correct way to describe it is that she is …… terrified.
Because of the way the two of them were just now, you may be thinking that Alena must be a hell of a girl, but you are not wrong.
At any rate, I called Reizen over to us and took over with Alena.
Alena pulls out the small sword from her waist and stands in front of the invisibilie Tiara.
She seems to be a little nervous, but I don’t think that’s a problem because the other person is more scared than she is.
As soon as the two finally took their stance, Maria raised her hand to signal the start.
“Mock battle begins!”
“Victory goes to the one who makes the first move!”
Tiara was the first to move.
It was probably her intention to end the fight before her opponent had a chance to prepare.
She was about to approach quickly and launch her sword into Alena’s stomach.
Alena, on the other hand, uttered a single skill.
” 【 Gravity Dome】 “
Something transparent spreads around Alena.
Before it could fully spread, Alena suddenly floated into the air and went up to a place Tiara’s sword couldn’t reach.
It’s true that it might be a little safer to be there, but since you don’t know what skills your opponent has, it’s still a situation where you can’t let your guard down.
Something transparent spread around Alena.
Before it could fully spread, Alena floated up into the air and went up to a place where Tiara’s sword could not reach.
It is true that she might be a little safer there, but since she does not know what kind of skills her opponent has, she cannot let her guard down yet.
” You flew away!? I’m not letting you- ?!”
Tiara was about to crouch down and leap to chase after Alena, but somehow she stretched out her knees with her feet on the ground and fell to the ground without leaping.
I thought she would stand up immediately, but she quickly became invisible and remained still without any further movement.
Alena, who confirmed this, came down from the air soooo quietly and looked at Tiara.
She poked and prodded with the hilt of her kodachi, but Tiara did not get up at all.
After confirming this, Alena turned around with a big smile on her face and made a big circle with both arms.
It seems that she had fainted.
Maria approached Tiara with an unbelieving expression on her face, but it seemed that she had really fainted and was scratching her head wryly.
Then, Alena flew back to us wobbly.
“Ooooooh! Alena! You’re good!
“Heh heh heh!”
“But what did you do?”
“My gravity dome can change its weight as long as it’s inside the dome! So I made it heavier near the ground and lighter in other places!”
So …… from the moment Tiara entered that dome, the victory was already decided. ……
Tiara was probably able to move because she did not manipulate gravity until Alena floated up, but as soon as Alena floated up, she manipulated gravity, which is why she fell down in such an awkward position.
Even though she is still small, I can’t believe she has already mastered the gravity dome …….
I think this might be something I don’t have to worry about, and Alena might just keep climbing higher and higher.
“Indeed. You should teach Alena swordsmanship next time, Uchikage. She’s never been in close combat before.”
Well, can we assume that this is the end of the promotion exam for now?
Maria is stunned over there, so I’m not sure how to proceed. ……
At any rate, I’m going to approach her and ask her about it.
“Aaaaah …… You passed or not ……? Of course all of you passed. But I can’t believe …… you beat these three.”
“Are they that good?”
“Their skills? A skill that can also erase the presence is a very dangerous thing you know? And yet you beat them.”
Having said that, those guys didn’t use their other skills in the fight.
Or perhaps it is more correct to say that they could not use them.
It seems that they all beat them before they could draw out their full strength. ……
Maria looking frustrated was somewhat amusing, but Kreis, the only one not knocked out, had his shoulders slumped and looked listless.
I don’t see why that would be the case if they showed that much of a difference in ability. ……
“Sigh~… who the hell are you guys…?”
“The party name is Reito. That’s all you need to remember for now.”
“Oh, ……, that’s right, ……. I’m going to give you a D- rank for the time being. Because that’s what you promised, and you all seem to have a certain amount of skill.”
“They’re my companions, you know? Isn’t that obvious?”
In fact, I had no idea that Alena had become so strong, but let’s not ask any questions because the result is alright.
At any rate, it seemed that me and the other Reitei were approved by the guild master, and we were promoted to the D-rank.
After that, the procedure was very simple.
Just take out the guild card and put it on something.
The guild card that came back had a single star mark on it.
They said that this was the proof of the D rank card.
By the time we move up to the S rank, we will have five stars.
That means those 2 guild cards have 5 stars on them. (Yurie and Rose)
“Oh well ……. But you’re not ready to beat me yet!”
“That’s an easy task, but I think I’ll hold off until …… when I move up to the S rank.”
“So be it. Then you’ll have to take requests in the D rank range from now on.”
“? Why not?”
It would not be in our interest to continue to move up the ranks in the D-rank range.
I looked at Reizen, Alena, and Uchikage, and after making sure they all nodded, I turned to Maria.
“Me and my buddies are going to dive in the dungeon.”
“That means we’re going to skip the D-rank zone and go for the C-rank zone, right?
“So that’s what we are going to do. First, we need to prepare our luggage.”
“Alena will help you!”
“Okay, shall we?”
“Wait a minute?”
Maria put her hand out in front of me to stop me from talking.
I knew that if I dived into a dungeon and conquered it, they would raise my rank by one, and since this was something the Adventurers’ Guild offered, it would not be easily overturned.
Maria was a little troubled and reconfirmed the offer.
“Err, you guys are going to …… conquer that dungeon?”
“Wait a minute? Okay?”
“? What’s wrong ……?
Alena asked the question on behalf of me, and it was indeed a concerning question.
Maria tried to answer it right away, but she found it very difficult to answer when she saw Alena’s face, which looked like a child whose toys had been confiscated.
Still, she couldn’t help but explain, trying as much as possible not to look at Alena.
“No, umm, that’s certainly a legitimate way to go, but …… and the procedure is …….’
“No, it’s easy if it’s a single application, but it’s not common for people like …… you guys to be promoted consecutively. And if you are promoted consecutively, you have to apply for what happened in the process. So, if you could just get a few D-rank requests…”
“And it would be a waste of my time.”
“I want to go to the dungeon.”
“I came here looking forward to the dungeon! Of course I’m here for the dungeon!”
If it is a legitimate way, there is nothing wrong with it, and if I listen to the story, it seems that Maria is just going to be a little busy.
If that is the case, what is there to be afraid of?
Both Alena and Reizen seem to want to dive in the dungeon.
There was nothing I could do to stop them.
If I tried to stop them, Alena would be seriously hurt.
I don’t want to do that, and I’m very curious about the dungeon, so I don’t have any options but to go there.
“So, I’m going to go. I’ll leave the rest to you.”
Uchikage. What do we need for the dungeon?
“Well, ……, first of all, you need light. If it’s dark, you can’t see anything. There was a store in front of the dungeon, so let’s go there and get some stuff.”
“Are we leaving already?”
“There’s a saying, [The sooner, the better].”
“Let’s go then!”
So we left the Adventurer’s Guild, completely ignoring the voices yelling behind us, to go get ready for the dungeon.
