On the next day, Eins received news from the butcher.
It seems that the Human has agreed on an alliance.
“But they still haven’t decided on which country to be the leader yet.”
This is stupid. A war will break out in only a few days from now.
“And about the Hero, he has successfully subjugated a dragon.”
He beat a dragon with that strength?
If that’s the case, then Eins can also defeat it.
“End of the report. Also, Mr Alphonse has a message saying 『I’m waiting at the first training ground』. “
“Really? I’ll go there now.”
After Eins left, I headed straight to the first training ground.
“Thank you also today!”
“We’ll start with sparring for today.”
We’ve been sparring for an hour with my power adjusted to match Alphonse.
As we clash sword for the second time, his power suddenly surge.
I seriously grabbed my sword which about to be flung and defeat Alphonse by deflecting his attack.
“Sorry. My bad.”
I apologise to Alphonse but he absentmindedly looks at me.
Then, I get closer to him.
“Hmm? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing in particular but my body feels a lot lighter now. And my power, I feel I’ve become a lot stronger than before.”
His power certainly has increased.
Should I check his status then?
Name: Alphonse Utelt Theodore
Title: 《Descendant of the Hero》《The Power of the Hero (Awakening) 》《The Great Hero’s Egg》
Skills: 《Swordsmanship: Advanced》《Fire Magic: Beginner》《Herculean Strength: Beginner》《The Heart’s Eye: Intermediate》
Strength: 123 (+5)
He becomes very strong after unlocking the Power of the Hero (Awakening) when reaching level 10.
“It seems you have awakened the power of the hero.”
“You mean this is the power of the hero?”
He is only level 10 but he has two attributes with the value over 200.
This is not good.
“Since your level is still low, for the moment, yes but you will get stronger as your level increase.”
I’m sure he will quit the training after this.
“This power… I have to master it! Master, please!”
“Please train me more!”
This time he’s the one asking me to train him. He even dogeza in front of me.
He is giving it all he has.
“…Soon, in six days, there will be a war between the Demon King Army and the Human.”
“By then, I’ll make sure you become strong enough to survive it.”
So, it’s almost time for the rush hour to end.
“Eins, Zwei, Vier.”
“By your side.”
“By your side.”
“By your side.”
“Eins, Zwei and this three will attack you. Show me everything you got.”
I throw the Swift Sword.
He holds on to the Unbreakable Sword and takes the slash head on.
Alphonse parried the attack and jump further behind.
Then, Eins shot a dagger from her side.
Alphonse tried to deflect the incoming dagger with his sword.
The moment I heard Zwei’s voice, Alphonse fall to the ground.
It seems that Zwei has sweep kick Alphonse’s leg.
Then, using the bottom palm of his hand, he attacks the defenceless Alphonse on the ground.
He coughs out blood from his mouth.
Perhaps some of his internal organs have been damaged.
“Vier, heal him.”
“As you wish.”
Vier approaches Alphonse and recovers his health.
It hasn’t been thirty seconds since the start of recovery right?
“Yes, I’m completely healed.”
I don’t know how he got completely heal in those time span. Either Alphonse has a high recovering ability or Vier’s healing magic is just amazing.
“Vier, please wait at the side of the training ground. Alphonse, we’ll do it again.”
This time Zwei approaches from the front.
Alphonse attack Zwei with sharp horizontal swing. Zwei ducks the attack.
Then, Eins step on Zwei’s back and jumps up to the sky.
Alphonse, who was confused with who he needs to deal with first, showed a gap in his defence and was pierced from the back with a sword.
Anyway, to be able to perform such feat since when did they know how to do that?
When Vier put her hand near the affected area, the wound immediately healed with no scar.
“We will continue practising.”
