She took off her robe and was not dressed as a dancer like before, but in a blue martial arts uniform.
She then shouts as she removes the bandage from her left arm.
With that voice, she held both palms in front of herself.
A blue chi emanates from both of her palms, which instantly burst into a large mass of chi.
(闘気= chi/battle spirit. I guess it’s like chakra from Naruto)
Suddenly, a roaring yell echoes in both of my ears.
The air around me shivered, and I couldn’t stand it any longer, so I held both ears and closed one eye.
Even though the chi should have dissipated, there is still a loud roar in my brain, and my sense of direction is thrown off.
In the midst of all this, she didn’t attack me, but she was taking some steps to the right and to the left.
“Fighting Dance –Razor Claws–”
And then, unexpectedly, she jumps on me.
If you looked, you would see that her five fingernails were covered in a pale light and stretched out like those of a beast.
I manage to get my sword out of the item box and use it to take her bare hands as she attacks me.
A metallic sound echoed around me, and I felt a weight in my hand.
“Tiger and Dragon Forty Lotus・Cutting Dance.”
(Note: All of her techniques written in Chinese, so I guess same with the way she speaks)
She launches a series of attacks against me.
It’s not that fast, thanks to the Peerless, but I can’t get anywhere if I keep using my sword to defend myself.
When I finally regained my senses, I found a momentary gap in her, deflected her fist tip to the left with my sword, and lightly kicked her from the vacant right side.
But I don’t feel like I kicked anyone in the leg.
My kick was completely empty.
When I see her, she disappears like a fog, swaying and shimmering.
It just happened ……, and before I had time to think about it, I felt a shock to my back.
I leapt and distanced myself from whatever was behind me.
There is a girl carrying a pointed, pale colored claw.
What was that, an alter ego or something?
“What a hard….. I can’t believe I can’t rip it apart with these claws.”
She looked at me with an incredulous expression.
Thanks to Peerles sthat allows that to happen.
However, it is time for that Peerless to come to an end.
It’s time to settle this.
“I’m gonna have to do that dance….”
Then she smoothly began to undo the bandage on her right arm.
By the time she was about to say that, my fist was already set on her epigastrium.
She collapsed against me with a dull thud.
At the same time, my body is slowly losing its strength.
Just in time, I guess.
I lay her down on the ground and look around slowly.
The people who attacked me all fainted and showed no signs of getting up right away.
“It would be easy to just leave them, but ……”
I look down at the girl in front of me again.
I still don’t think a girl like this would attack someone for no reason.
Then suddenly I’m curious and I turn my attention to her ear.
“I don’t understand.”
Keith sighed in front of me.
And on the bed in our room is a girl who is still unconscious.
“I don’t admire this kind of hobby very much.”
“Don’t get me wrong. Look at his right ear.”
Keith looks at the girl’s right ear as I say.
“This is …….”
There is a small earring there.
At the end was a sparkling jewel that looked like a sphere that had been split in half.
“Jewel ……, No, this is it Skill Crystal!”
“I tried to get the skill from it, but it didn’t work. Maybe it’s because I’m lacking in half of them, that’s why I’m trying to get the story out of her, along with why she attacked me.”
“I see. I see your point.”
Keith nodded with an expression that said he understood.
“So what are you going to do with her now?”
“When she wakes up, I’ll restrain her for now and make her tell me why she attacked me. It would be nice to hear about the Skill Crystal as well.”
“She may be our enemy, but she is still a child. She would not welcome any rough treatment, would you?”
“I ain’t got no taste for hurting little girls.
While me and Keith were talking about this, the girl raised her little voice.
I quickly activate my “Earth Bind” and restrain her hands and feet.
“This is …….”
And slowly, her eyes opened.
As soon as she sees me in her vision, she pales and gets up.
She may have immediately tried to get out of the situation, but ger face turned bitter as she realized that her hands and feet were bound.
I approach her as I speak to her.
“What the hell are you going to do with me, ……?”
She glared at me snappishly, squeezing out a weak voice.
“Who know, but you attacked me in the first place, didn’t you? What the hell do you think you were doing?”
She doesn’t reply to my question.
She just bites her bottom lip hard and slumps down.
“‘……. If you don’t want to answer, I don’t care about that for now. What I’m more interested in is what’s attached to that ear of yours.”
I pointed to her right ear as I said this.
“That’s a skill crystal, right? Why do you have it? Who the hell are you?”
“This is …….”
She looks at me as she shakes it out of her right ear.
Then, as if she had made up her mind, she opened her mouth.
“I have a favor to ask in anticipation of you.”
“The strength that surpassed my charms and even kicked off the night attack. Will you please lend me your strength?”
“No, no, wait. Why are you suddenly talking about that? Besides, my question is ……”
“Why do I have the Skill Crystal and who I am ……, was it? If I tell you that, will you help me?”
She looks at me with straight eyes.
What the hell does ahe want from me? ……
“It’s up to us to talk about whether or not we can cooperate with …….”
“…… I understand. That’s fine for now.”
She seemed somewhat unconvinced, but she nodded her head.
I checked it out, released the earthbind thinking that it probably wouldn’t put up any fancy resistance, and asked the question again.
“So, who are you after all?”
Then she slowly opened her mouth.
“I am Luriel Jumdaret. I am a descendant of the royal family that once ruled this land.”
