48 Episode 48

 There was a clatter in the silent auditorium.

 Silas, who had been standing in front of the boardroom, slumped back in his seat as if pressured by Adolph's angry voice.

I'm not sure what you're talking about, Adolph. You know what it means to talk to me like that. ......?

 Silas managed to say just that in a shaky voice.

 But Adolph responded without the slightest fear.

"Save your fighting for later, old man. This is our fight. Get out of the way.

Now ......

 And with that, Silas became speechless, his mouth agape.
 He probably didn't think that Adolf, who was supposed to be his protégé, would rebel against him.

 After Adolf finished his exchange with Silas, he turned to Rio and the three of them again.

I've silenced the outside world. Let the fighting continue.

 But it was Rio and the others who were confused.

No, ...... the continuation of the fight, you're already a wreck. ....... You've already won the battle.

 Rio said, but Adolf snorted.

I'm not sure what to make of that. I'm not sure how you can say that you chose to win.


The battle is life or death. If you're not ready to beat me, then give up, b*tc*. That's your weakness.

...... No matter what, if you don't finish the job, you'll never admit defeat.

Of course.

All right, all right.

 Rio waved the wooden sword in his hand with a flick of the wrist.
 Adolf also has a wooden sword in his hand.

"Good resolve. That's what a warrior should be. Especially a strong one.

f*ck you. But you're a wreck. One on one with me is fine.

I don't mind, but one on one with a companion's spell is an interesting way of putting it.

Well, yeah. But either way, you're playing a dirty role in a game that's already won. It's no different.

b*tc*. That's quite a statement.

 Rio and Adolph face each other with their wooden swords at the ready.
 The distance between them is about ten paces.

 Meifa is about to call out to him, but...

"...... Wait, Rio. If you want to play the dirty game, that's my job.

"Yes, Maifa. This is the part where you make Rio look good. I'll just sit back and watch.


 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a little nervous about the whole thing.
 The balance of power between the three of them is sometimes difficult to understand.

I'm sure you'll find them to be a very interesting bunch.

"Yeah, I'm proud of you sisters. You should think about who you hang out with. Don't hang out with Dorothy and Jake and all those jerks.

No, I'm more comfortable with those guys.

Oh, yeah... here we go.

Yeah... come on, b*tc*.

 Tense pause.

 Then they both kicked the ground at the same time.
 A moment later, they collide in the middle.


Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!


 Rio and Adolf began a fierce battle.

 A clash of sparks.
 The sound of the blows was so fierce that it was hard to believe they were hitting each other with wooden swords.

 As befits a battle between two heroes, the blindingly fast strikes quickly built up to ten, twenty, thirty, and so on.

 It was clear that the battle was on.

 Rio was in perfect condition and was under the influence of support magic from Iris.
 Adolph, on the other hand, had accumulated damage and was losing power and speed.

 Rio is pushing Adolph harder and harder every time they collide.
 And then...

"Oh my god!

"Ugh! ......!


 This is the first time I've ever been to a game in which I've been able to play the game.

 This is a great way to make sure that you are getting the most out of your time with us.

 Towards it...

 Rio leaps high with the power of a hero's legs.
 And in the air, he holds his wooden sword above his head.

"Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on, come on!

 Rio's wooden sword was filled with fighting spirit and swung down.

"Noooooo ......!

 Adolf tried to catch the blow with his wooden sword, but...

 And then... Baggin!
 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your time with your family.

I'm not sure what to say.

 I'm not sure what to say.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 And then... beep, beep!
 The magic tool Adolph was wearing sounded a knockout warning.

"And the game is on! The winner, Ritto Village Academy of Bravery!

 The referee raises the flag.
 The final game is over.

 But there was no cheer from the audience.

 The audience didn't know how to react to this situation, and they were all stunned and confused.

 But it didn't matter, as the players congratulated each other on a job well done.
 Rio held out his hand to Adolf, who was on his knees.

We've won. We've won.

"Oh ......, it's a shame, but we've lost. But that last one, the Rock Slayer, did you learn that from Brett?

Yes, I stole it from you. But I figured with my height and weight, I couldn't do it the way you did. I thought maybe if I jumped I could do it.

"Huh, you saw through the essence of the technique in an instant and adapted it to your own style. ...... You're a reckless b*tc*.

 Adolf took Rio's hand and stood up.

 At that point, the audience began to clap here and there.

 The sound of applause, small at first, gradually grew louder and louder, until it filled the entire hall...

 But then, someone shouted in protest.

I don't approve! I don't approve of this. ......! It's a sham!

 It was Silas, who had risen from the boardroom again.
