414-Waiting for 382 Months (3)

You and Mitya mesh well. They're both about speed.
Mitya for speed, Freddy for moves.
I'd say Freddy picked up the win by experience. Hey, Freddy, how pathetic are you?

 The difference was so close that Mitya forgot that he had been a little scared at first and said, "Mmmm~! I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 However, Freddy had fought many times in a row with a break in between, and if he had fought in perfect condition, he would have won with a little more time to spare.

 But Freddy's exhaustion seemed to have peaked, and he was now slumped to the ground, breathing heavily.

"Give me a break, Mr. Cyrus. The two girls are also quite strong, even if your rank six is not.

That's true. But, you know, they've only been adventurers for about a year.

Seriously? That's really depressing. ....... And they're still underage, right? Of course.

You must have a good instructor. I think it's great to hone your skills on your own, but it's not very efficient.

I can't speak for the instructors, but just to let you know, the training time is different. Mary and the others... I can't speak for the instructors, but just for the record, the training time is different.

 A normal rookie would have to work from morning till night to earn enough money to have a place to stay and food to eat.

 Inevitably, there will be little time left for training, but we are different.

 We are making money efficiently, we have reserves, we have a lot of time to spend on training, and we have a skilled mentor. Our leadership skills are questionable because they are not acquired under someone's guidance, but at least we can show them the right moves and train them in simulated battles.

 In addition, there is the risk of injury during training.

 If you are a newcomer with little reserves, if you are injured during training and cannot work, your life is at stake. Just like we were afraid of when we first came here.

 However, thanks to Haruka and the others' medical care, Mary and the others are able to train intensely without having to fear even fracture-level injuries.

 They are little girls, and in the beginning we were hesitant to train with them, but they wanted to, and we have broken their bones in training more than once.

 Since they have been training in such a way, the density and duration of their training is incomparable to that of ordinary adventurers, and it is only natural that there would be a big difference in the results.

 In addition to that, I casually suspect that the effect of my gift [a little increase in experience].

 Since God gave it to me, I'm sure that its effect is on Toya and the others, but if it's meaningless to Mary and the others, it's probably not.

 Experience in this world is not just a number, but the result of our actions expressed as a number.

 In other words, the more experience you have, the more experience you gain from combat and training.

 I don't believe that Lord Adversus would be so stingy as to exclude Mary and Mitya from the sphere of influence - I don't know Lord Adversus well enough to say for sure, but if I didn't think so, I wouldn't be able to explain the rapid growth of Mary and the others. But if I didn't think so, I wouldn't be able to explain the rapid growth of Mary and the others.

 But I don't know what the standard is in this world, and I can't help but think that with the physical abilities of a beast, they could do something like this.

"Okay. Freddy, you'll train with those two girls. You train with your two girls, Freddy, and I'll train with Toya and Nao.

"What? You're going to continue?

 When Freddy finally stood up, his jaw dropped, but Silas put his hand on Freddy's shoulder and encouraged him with a manly smile.

I've always thought you were the kind of guy who could take it up a notch. You don't deserve to end up here. Don't you think?

"Really ......? Do you think you can do it?

Of course I do. But it will require your effort. Get some experience! Hone your skills! Don't just stop there!

Silas, ....... I'm going to do it! I want you to watch!

Hey! Come on!

 Silas pats the bright-eyed Freddy on the back and sends him off towards Mary and the others.

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find a lot more information on the web.

 When I nodded, they nodded seriously. I'm going to win this time!

 Whether they can win or not, I'm sure there are things they can absorb, so it will be a good experience for them.

"Cyrus, we were supposed to be training again today, so I don't mind. ...... Is he good? You got a job or something?

If he's in the guild at this time, he's not busy. And as you can see, he's a complete self-starter. It's great that he's gotten so good at it, but it's also good that he's had some experience with legitimate swordplay. Those two are good for that.

"Legitimate swordplay, huh? Is that what it looks like?

Do they not? It definitely looks like a move of some kind to me.

I'd say it's the same.

 The main person who teaches Mitya is Natsuki, and Mary is Toya.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that. Perhaps it's proper swordsmanship.

So we're dealing with Silas?

I, well, I've got time. You guys don't have a lot of experience with people, do you?

You know what I mean? Just mock battles within the party, basically. We're mostly fighting demons.

I've trained with Viscount Nenus's army, but that's about it.

 And they weren't very strong either.
 Maybe a common soldier in the Territorial Guard can beat Freddie.

If you're an ordinary adventurer, that's fine, but as you move up in rank, you'll have to deal with more and more bandits, guards, and other people. There's no harm in getting some experience.

"If that's the case, I'll lend you my chest. You're going to entertain me, aren't you?

Oh, it's Toya? Well, I think I can do that, don't you?

 I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. I'm not sure what to say, but I'd like to know. It's a good idea. I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that there is no Haruka to heal you.

 When you play with me, Toya will usually break your bones.

 I wish I could do it back sometimes, but unfortunately, there's not enough difference in skill between me and Toya to break the bones of a musclebound Toya. There's a big difference in weapons and intrinsic physical strength.

 In return, I've been burning her with a moderate amount of magic!

I'm telling you. I'll go easy on the bones so they don't break. Silas, a few bruises would be fine, right?

 I'm just trying to help you out.

It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for. Every day? I'm not sure what to do.

You can't break a bone every day. Occasionally, occasionally.

 It's not at all my opinion, but I can't help it if I say it now.

Are you ready? Cyrus, I don't care if Toya breaks her arm. Give it your all. I'd rather break them.

 I can't help it, but a little payback would be nice, right?

Oh. I'll have it fixed when I get home. Let's get started.

 After overhearing Toya's protests and signaling the start of the battle, the two men opened up and faced each other with their weapons at the ready.

 But it was only for a short time.
 Immediately, they stepped into each other's arms and their weapons clashed, creating a loud noise that echoed throughout the training grounds.
