Chapter 104 – The Target in Three Months

At the end of sparring, I got off the ring while wiping my sweat.

Well, it was more like a self-introduction than a sparring session.

Because there wasn’t much damage to each other.

The pain on my back wasn’t lingering, and my numbness was gradually subsiding.

However, if I’d been hit with all his might, it would not have ended well.

“Even though, he was seriously muscular… is he really human?”

『Indeed, he is human without a doubt.』

Seeing Mr. Machio wiping sweat with a hand towel, I thought for a moment, “Just like Bro, Machio is actually also…”, which Tre’ainar denied.

『He possesses higher limits of physique, skeletal structure, and muscle mass than most humans… In some sense…… tis likely he possesses what is close to the limits of the muscle mass humans can obtain by “purely” training… without being conceited about his gifted talent… I suppose he gained such through my blood-soaked training.』

“Talent… Is it?”

Talent. Tre’ainar also said that after my Max measurement.

No matter how hard I train, I can’t catch up with Machio’s power.

Certainly, despite being the same human, those thick muscles are out of the standard, a crystallization of his talent and effort.

In three months, that power will be unleashed at full throttle.

It was both interesting and quite troubling.

“…… A… amazing…”

“Hmm?”

That’s when I noticed dozens of people around me as I stepped out of the ring.

Apparently, everyone was buzzing, as if they had acknowledged me.

Especially……

“You were … so … so amazing.”

“Who the hell are you, bastard!”

“Why…. can you do that…. that much?”

“Are you a genius, too?”

The guys from the magic school were surprised and puzzled by me, and had somewhat complicated expressions.

Perhaps, because I was seen as someone in the same situation as they were or the fact that I’m “one of many other guys other than José”.

“Ah, thank you. But there’s still more to go.”

“Still more!? Even though he’s so strong… such courage… yet there’s still a long way to go…”

“Ah. Because my goal now is to win the tournament in three months… but that’s not my ultimate goal.”

“…… Eh?”

Right. Higher and stronger.

A feat that surpasses my father’s achievement of defeating Tre’ainar… to achieve that, there is no thing as “this is enough” strength to accomplish it.

『Although they call it my defeat, it was through cowardly means.』

And even though Tre’ainar was the one whispering me an earful, but still…

I’ve sparred with him many times, so I knew.

For me, who still can’t even land a blow on Tre’ainar, my father who defeated him, even if it was through cowardly means, was still ahead of me.

Huh? That? But, in that sense…

“I think thou will do more than I imagined. And I will buy that haughty ambition.”

Jamdi’el came over to show her appreciation to me after finishing the spar.

That’s right. My father and the seven heroes who once saved the world.

Jamdi’el was among the Six Supremacy who can be said to be almost the same level as the Seven Heroes.

If I fight her, I’ll have a rough idea of the distance…

『Cease at once. tis still too soon for “that”…』

And Tre’ainar, who usually says, “Go, child!”, drew the line at that idea.

In other words, the difference was still vast…

“Hah~, hah~, excuse me, could you step aside a little! J, just now, I heard it was a victory, but really, is it true!?”

Then it was then.

The sound of running up the stairs vigorously.

The voice of a woman raising her voice while gasping for breath.

A woman appeared scraping through the crowd.

“Huh~, huh~, huh~… Hey? Is it true that Mr. Machio sparred? Besides, it was a great spar… and he’s surely aiming to win the tournament!?”

As soon as she arrived, she was spouting words.

She was lightly dressed in a short sleeved top and shorts, held full shopping bags in both hands, and sported a ponytail with her long black hair pulled back into a single bun behind her head.

She wore a band around her forehead to keep the bangs out of the eyes.

And that body… although she was a woman, she was quite well-trained.

A firmly toned body. It was reminiscent of a Shinobu.

However, the only difference from Shinobu is… she had melons for breasts and they were swinging and swaying….

“Tsukshi, are you just returning?”

“Big Sister”

“Mr. Machio!? Is it true that you sparred?! Moreover, a good match against Mr. Machio…”

Oh I see… she is Amae and Karui’s… even so, I thought she would be younger because she was those two’s older sister, but she didn’t seem much older than me… about one or two years?

“Yeah, he was strong. The tournament in three months… it’s like an unexpectedly strong opponent has emerged.”

“S, so much…?”

“Yes, that’s the guy there.”

The woman named Tsukshi, after being told by Mr. Machio, came to look me over.

I also gave her a light bow and quick hello.

Then, the woman named Tsukshi…

“Ah! Or he’s… the boy that the High Priestess brought to us…”

“Oh, seems that way.”

“Well, that’s right… he was strong enough for Mr. Machio to praise him so much. Then, if this is the case, Mr. Machio’s victory in the tournament… it’s becoming tougher~….”

Hmm? You think Machio’s victory might be in a pinch, but why do you look somewhat happy?

No, both Karui and Jamdi’el were like that… I’m finally getting worried.

What’s really going to happen when you win? No way, it shouldn’t be some sort of sacrifice, right?

“What? Is Tsukshi worried that I might not win the tournament?”

“Eh!? No, no, that’s… no, I don’t think so~…. “

“Ha, ha, but, I myself am getting tensed and motivated with this. I have to work harder to win the tournament in three months’ time.”

“Ah, no, uh… Mr. Machio has been working hard enough… but maybe you don’t need to work so hard anymore~….”

However, the “good vibes” drifting between the two warmed the atmosphere of the room somewhat.

Are these two people in “that kind of relationship”?

“Eh… Hello~.”

“Hmm? Yes.”

“I’m Tsukshi. 17 years old. I’m living in a church like Karui and Amae and I’m here to support your livelihood, so pleased to meet you~.”

She said and greeted me… 17 years old!?

“Oh, you’re two years older than me?”

“Oh, so, are you 15 years old? Then, if you have any problems, leave it to big sister~♪.”

“Oh, b, but”

“You can call me Big Sis!”

Tsukshi smiled and tapped her chest… surely I’m not the only one who saw those swaying things.

Anyway…

“H, hey, Mr. Mahcio… How old are you?”

“Myself? I’m 27 years old, but…”

“T, twenty-seven years old!?”

I thought he was over 30, but surprisingly… No, still…

“But Mr. Machio and Tsukshi…”

“Big Sis!”

“…… Elder Sis Tsukshi…”

“Hmm… Well, maybe a compromise? So what about me and Mr. Machio?”

“No, you’re… a couple yet 10 years apart in age…”

“Eehh!!??”

Well, it may not be uncommon for a couple to have such difference in age, but it’s amazing that a teen is in love with someone ten years older than them.

Sadiz and I have a four-year age difference…. we didn’t go out though! I couldn’t go steady with her like that!

“Eh?! Eh, eh!? Eh?! Is, is that right? Eh!? Is, is that how it looks like to you!?”

And, Elder Sis Tsukshi suddenly blushed bright red and got flustered.

Hmm? That? Is it different, “not yet”?

“Hahaha, no, young man. Like Amae and Karui, Tsukshi has been around since she was very young, she’s like a daughter and a younger sister to me.”

“……………………”

Ah, Elder Sis Tsukshi groaned “Zuun” as she got blatantly depressed with a heavy thump in the air, at the words Mr. Machio said with a refreshing smile.

And the people in the dojo and from the town smiled wryly.

Ah, I see. That’s the way it is.

In other words, Mr. Machio’s line was correct in a sense, but the remark was too cruel… Moreover, the person himself has zero malice. Didn’t you notice?

Looking back, I didn’t want to be treated as a kid brother by Sadiz, either…

“…… hmm…… I get it.””

“Haha, right.”

“…… Ha~, is this how the men of this country are? Do you have hearing loss or are you insensitive to the human mind?”

“…… Huh? What do you mean?”

What do you know about a person’s feelings if you can’t notice the feelings of a woman with such a blatant attitude?

『Oi, child… are you, of all people, saying that?』

「Ah? That’s right. I’m not deaf, I’m not insensitive. I’ve heard Shinobu’s confession, and her feelings are painfully apparent, so I’ve been thinking a lot about it too…」

『…… Huh…』

「Wh, what is it?」

『No… just…… I just felt pity for the girl.』

「? 』

Somehow, Tre’ainar let out an exasperated sigh of dismay at me, but what do you mean?

“You… that…”.

At that time, the boys of the magic school were awkwardly in front of me.

As I recall, this guy was Mortriage…

“If you’re going to win the tournament in three months… do you mean you’re going to beat José?”

To be honest, I didn’t care about that man so much… well……

“That’s right. I’m going to knock them all down… whoever they are.”

I told him so I could be heard by those around me, and I dared Mr. Machio to hear me.

“…… Hoh~”

Mr. Machio also grinned.

He firmly accepted my challenge….

“I see. However, I will not lose. There’s a reason I can’t lose.””

“Yes, that’s right. But I’m not going to lose, either. I have no reason to lose.”

Somewhat refreshingly, but our sparks were properly flying.

The people around me started making a lot of fuss, and Elder Sis Tsukshi was muttering things like “I have hope…”. Yes, let’s find out what happens if we really go for the win.

And…..

“Oh, I have a request! Of you!”

“Hmm?”

Mortriage that seemed to have decided something to do with me…

“With you… can I train too? I also…… I want to be stronger!”

“No way”

I was asked to do something that didn’t make sense, but I refused, and I decided to restart my training for the next three months.

“O, Ora, wait a minute! I’ll ask you to! Me too… I was struck in the heart by your bravery to fight with the strongest Machio! I’m asking! Let me train with you, too!”

“…… Me as well…… I want to change myself! I want to be confident in myself!”

“Please! We can’t end it like this! We’re also… frustrated! We’re also human!”

Well, for the time being, let’s do some muscle training.

  1. *ding congrats! You have gain followers!
    Lol
    Sad Earth unwillingly gained minions, although whether they can stand Tre’inar ‘s training method or not is another thing altogether
    Thanks for the update as usual

  2. Is the “I wonder ” nano ?
    if so , I think it’s better to leave it as “nano” IMO since it’s widely known

    Thanks for translating this

    1. She does say nano. I’m trying to avoid that. I want to keep my translations faithful to the setting not the source language. If usually just ignore it but it really stood out a lot. Someone did suggest using ~instead, so I’ll go with that. Thanks for the input.

  3. Well, now I’m 100% positive the prize for winning is to be married to their goddess (treinars clone I presume). And this is just my assumption, but it seems like Tsukshi tend to end her sentences with “shira”(typical onee-san word), I think its better to just use “~” at the end of her sentences rather than “I wonder” bc that word does not mean anything in this context.
    Thanks for thr chapter

    1. I understand why he’s oblivious of the princess’s feelings tho, she was constantly berating him and every time another girl showed a pinch of interest on him she would shush them away plus he had an inferiority complex and was deeply in love with Saditz.

      1. For tsunderes their actions speak louder than words, and the Princess’ actions speak horribly of her. She’s constantly berating him, and even goes out of her way to publicly humiliate him.

        Liked by 2 people

      2. “she was constantly berating him” People can still spot tsunderes like this, even more with the large amount of hints MC got, the BIG problem, is that the 1/1 times we’ve seem them fight, she poked at his worst insecurity, something he’d say he’d rather not have been born over

  4. -watches Earth chuck that boomerang so very very very hard- ….when that thing comes back…it may in fact KILL him.

    Hey afiq? What are you talking about? He clearly isn’t going to get involved with the big sister character it’s a matchmaking set up between her and Machio.

    Also, again with the princess hate. Need I remind people that anyone who listens to her other then our dense-AF Earth here can easily tell that the Princess is super obsessed with Earth. We’re talking “Is she related to Jami by any chance?” levels of obsessed. She’s like a step below cult mentality towards Earth. Her bashing of him only looks like bashing to him because of his own self esteem issues (which she didn’t realize she had because “communication” is a two way street and he wasn’t saying SHIT to anyone) to everyone else it looked like exactly what it was.. A girl trying to keep other girls from being interested in the guy she adores out of jealousy/fear of losing him. That’s why when she started doing her high speed double talk the other girls giggled a bit and placated her. It’s always easier to understand a situation from an outsiders perspective than if you are involved in it yourself.

  5. What a shocker, the so-called dense protagonist is able to recognize when a girl has feelings for him if they’re conveyed in even a somewhat reasonable manner.

    So naturally, the delusional princess gets left out. No wonder- if you hate the way someone treats you on a regular basis, why would you have any motivation to look deeper, much less think ‘well I hate the way she treats me but she actually loves me so it’s fine’?

    Like

  6. No way, weaklings. Spending time on you is a waste of time! Well, not really. There would be some reward eventually, in one way or another. Now then, dense protagonist, try and remember the princess ^^
