33 Episode 33

"Oh, Mr. Jake, ......! You're doing it, ......!

 Silas's expression changed to one of glee.
"Wise Wolf," he said, rubbing his hands together.

"Yeah, that's right. We should have had you do it from the start. No, I thought I should give the guys below me a chance, but they're not as good as I expected. I didn't know I'd have to bother you guys.

"Well, my father told me to come along, but I wasn't planning on traveling. I changed my mind a bit. I hadn't originally planned on going on a business trip, but I changed my mind. ...... You've seen the best of them.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 Jake is a third-year student at the Academy for Brave Heroes in King's Landing, a year or two older than Rio and his friends.

 He is of a stocky build, but his body is well-muscled, and his long, shaggy silver hair is stretched to his back.

 In the event you're not sure what to do, you may want to take a look at this article.

 Rio was startled by the gaze and reacted.

 He hurriedly turned around, looking for the source of the chill, and found Jake's sharp gaze.

 The gazes of Rio and Jake collided head-on.

"What the hell do you want with ...... me?

I'm sure you're bored with all the small fry. I'm sure you're bored with the little guys. I'll make you feel so good.

"Ha! ...... is good.

 Rio pulls away from me and steps forward.
 Jake also lumbered forward, leaning forward like an animal.

 I watched and pondered.
 The mock battle was more like a child's quarrel, but what was the point in continuing?

 And what's more...

 No, it can't be helped, but let's just make sure we're presentable.
 I call out to Silas.

"Mr. Cyrus, are you still going to do this? I think we've settled the matter.

 Silas responds to my question with a grin.

"No, no, Dr. Brett, the passion of these young people is still bubbling away. Don't let us put out that fire. Let them run into each other as they wish.

 As usual, his words come out so easily.

 But there's no reason to complain.
 Now for the confirmation.

"Okay. So, it's not a team game this time, but one-on-one?

 When I asked that, Silas said something to the two students beside him, Adolf the Stiff Sword and Dorothy the Queen.

"Adolph the Sturdy Sword, a young boy with an impressive physique not much older than Rio and his friends, crossed his arms and said without changing the expression on his chiseled face.

I'm not leaving. I'm not leaving. I'm not worthy of being eaten yet.

 "I'm not leaving. I'm not worthy of being eaten yet." Dorothy, the Queen, said with a thin smile on her crimson lips, in a gesture of seductiveness not seen in a girl.

I'll pass for now. But Jake, don't break that delicious toy so easily.

 And Silas, in response, turns to me and says.

"That's the thing. I think it would be best to let the motivated students compete against each other.

"Okay. One on one between Rio and Jake.

 So, the next battle would be Rio versus Jake.

 Iris and Maifa, who were standing beside me, looked at me nervously.

"Sir, ...... that guy Jake, ......

...... He's strong. I'm not sure what to make of that. ...... But in Rio now.

 When I heard their evaluation, I bent my mouth into a crooked line.

 It's true that Jake is strong.
 I know because I saw what they were capable of when I was teaching at King's Landing.

 I wasn't sure if I should tell Rio that or not.

 In the meantime, Rio and Jake were standing face to face with each other.

 Jake said to Alma, who was looking at him blankly.

"Mr. Alma, be the referee. Keep an eye on me. It's not like we're fighting a bunch of idiots.

The rules are the same as before. The rules are the same as before. No dangerous attacks, please. You can't do anything like that.

It's okay. Don't be so uptight, Alma-sensei. And look at me, I'm not using a sword. I'm not even going to use a low level technique like the bamboo split.

 Jake said, holding out his empty hands.
 Jake's fighting style is not swords, axes, or spears, but empty-handed martial arts.

This is not what I'm talking about!

I'm kidding. You're so cute when you get worked up. You should take me out on a date sometime. Just until midnight.

No, thank you. If you keep talking like that, I won't judge you.

I'm sorry, I'm just kidding, don't get mad. If Miss Alma doesn't like me, I'll be too shocked to go to school.

How dare you? You barely attend school to begin with.

 Jake's condescending tone of voice had completely taken Alma over the pace.
 Jake even said something like this.

But I'm not interested in weak women. I'm not interested in weak women. Alma is still better than me right now, but I'm sure I'll beat her soon. But I'm not interested in weak women, so I'd better not go out with her.


 Jake could see the agitation on Alma's face.

 But Jake didn't seem to care about Alma's condition and turned to the person he was facing.
 I'm not sure what to say.

I'm not sure what to make of that. I can smell the talent in you. The other two can smell it too, but right now it's you. I'm tempted. ...... I'm a little flabbergasted, but I can't wait to eat you.

 Jake said, sticking out his long tongue and licking his lips.

 And Rio...

"You're disgusting. I won't let you touch Iris or Meifa. I'll crush you myself!

 And with that, he raised his wooden sword.
 I lowered my center of gravity and became a half-body.

 This is a much more serious stance than the one he took against the other fifteen - the stance he takes when training with me.

That's a good one. That's what I'm talking about.

 Jake also takes a stance.
 Jake's stance is similar to Rio's, but he has his hands out in front of him as if he's about to grab you, which is also a unique stance.

 The distance between Rio's position and Jake's is about a dozen steps.
 But considering the power and speed of the two men's steps, it was not a large distance.

 Jake, without taking his eyes off Rio, says.

"Here, Miss Alma. Don't just stand there, give me the signal to start the fight.

"Oh, ......, I'm sorry. So... let's begin!

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.

 Both Rio and Jake kicked the ground at the same time.
