I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 197
Chapter 4-43. Performance Feast
Yes. The mock battle contest has begun.
Or rather, it is a skills feast, or so said by Houen.
The place was at the training hall in the Adventurers’ Guild.
The people who were listening to Houen’s speech are crowded together there, watching the competition and waiting for their turn to fight me.
How did this happen?
Three adventurers are already in front of me, with their weapons ready and in high spirits.
They seem to have a lot of time to spare.
“BRING IT ON! We’re going to kick your ass!”
“I’ll strike first with lightning!”
“My turn after you!”
“We’re gonna win this fight!”
Thanks for sharing your plan with me.
By the way, Houen is the referee.
I’ll kick his ass later.
“Let the first round …… begin!”
Okay, Imma roll them over.
Compress the water, expand it horizontally, make it into a plate, and hit them.
This is an easy thing to make with infinite water manipulation, and it consumes very little MP.
Do not underestimate it as just water.
Water can be harder than concrete in some cases.
The woman who was about to use the lightning seemed to be surprised by the sudden appearance of the mass of water and was unable to fire her technique.
The water plate hit the three of them directly.
There was a dull noise, and the three were blown out of the ring.
This infinite water manipulation is very strong, as it can handle water in any way.
I can decide how I want to use it.
“Out of the field! The winner is Ouren! The next one!”
“You’re not giving me a break!”
“On the contrary, do you need a rest?”
Well yes, actually, no.
I thought about it when I actually started this ……, it’s very difficult to control my skill, you know?
I mean, my skills can kill someone in a second, you know?
If I don’t use the other end of the water spear, I might cut off the weapon, and their leg will fly off if I use the reamed water spear.
Even if I wanted to hit them, I have an automatic skill called [Defense Penetration] so even if I hit them normally, it would be dangerous.
I also possess the Wave Fist…….
Seriously, the only safe way to deal with them is with infinite water manipulation.
Oh, but can I use golem or trap skills?
The water traps are a bit dangerous. ……
Ah, but if I use golem, it’s going to be a long term battle …….
Alright, let’s just go ahead and use the skill at my own pace.
Binds with infinite water manipulation, quick win, quick finish!
There were five people who came out next.
That Houen bastard …… I’m going to shoot some water to them.
They’re all melee fighters!
Infinite water manipulation!
All of them fall down by teasing their legs with water.
And then, they go straight out of the arena…….
“The winner is Ouren! Okay, next! All adventurers, get fired up! Try to make Ouren move even a single step!”
Perhaps they were fired up by Houen’s words, and those who had been watching the game began to challenge me.
While wondering how long it would take me to handle all of them, I silently activated my infinite water manipulation.
I made a big ball of water.
Then, spin it.
I launched it.
[New skill have been developed.]
It’s been a long time! Welcome aboard new skill-san!
What is it, what is it!? What did I get!
─ Water bullet ( cut ) ─
This is a higher level version of the water bullet. A skill to shoot water bullets with a sharpness like a blade.
I looked at the adventurer and saw he was covered in blood.
I’m really sorry.
Fortunately, he did not seem to have received any fatal injuries and walked to the infirmary on his own.
“The winner is Ouren! Next! You are not allowed to hurt anyone!”
“I get it already!”
That’s a straw bullet misfired, …….
Believe me, the voice of heaven didn’t mention anything about it.
That damn lexicon.
Four adventurers came out next.
They seemed to be a party of some sort, and their formation was prearranged.
I thought they looked promising, but I wanted to get this mock battle over as soon as possible, so as soon as it started, I swept them out of the arena..
Next were ten people.
The water was made into a web and pushed straight down and out of the field.
Next, fifteen people …… followed next, and so on and so on, until it was evening when the mock battle was over.
“No way,……, I didn’t know he was this strong………….”
“But it was mostly out of the field, wasn’t it?”
“You idiot,……, Houen-san told him to go easy on us, so he didn’t use any of his deadly skills.”
“No freakin way….”
I can hear people praising me,…… but that’s not the point right now.
Right now me, I’m on the ground.
I’ll explain it very simply: …….
My over 1000 MP is almost gone.
It’s been a long time since I ran out of MP.
But I’m keeping the ball of water I gave up to the princess. ……!
I’m glad I set it up to keep the magic before it runs out. ……
This kind of thing can be done, I guess.
Not sure how long it’ll last, though.
“Are you okay?”
Shit, I can’t even talk…….
I can’t move a finger.
I really want to be praised that I managed to last until the end of the battle.
“Thank you for your hard work, Ouren-sama ……. Let us carry you to the inn.”
Uchikage carried me on his back and left the Adventurers’ Guild.
But before we could leave the training ground, a few adventurers came out to meet us.
They were the same adventurers who had just challenged me.
“Can I help you?”
“[We apologize for what we said earlier.]”
They immediately bowed and apologized.
I couldn’t open my eyes anymore, but I could hear their voices.
“It seems…. we misunderstood you guys.”
“Oh, I’m sorry, but you’ll have to wait until Ouren-sama wakes up. He is already asleep.”
Uchikage quietly shrugged off the adventurer and headed back to the inn.
I went straight to sleep as if I had been dead. …… It seems that it takes a long time to recover this much MP, and I ended up sleeping for two whole days.
During those two days, I was given the nickname [Ouren The Water Emperor] by the adventurers, but I didn’t find out about it until three days later when I was feeling better.
