Chapter 66: I feel like if the title changes to The Silver Knight I won’t get an appearance anymore

Day 29? – The Faraway Labyrinth, 95F

『Living Sword Lv 100』 is strong…… Probably?…… I think so?…… Ah, this again.

The living sword fluttered through the air around Skelly Pres in a boisterous sword dance.

Glints of silver flashed across its surface, with sparks pouring all around. Flashes from the slashes could be seen all around. And……?

「Clang, thud……」

「Knock?」

One of the living swords ended up at my feet after being repelled by Skelly Pres’ attack, so I tried hitting it with 『Staff?』, after which it stopped moving. Out of batteries? I tried hitting it with Lightning Magic, but it still doesn’t move…… Looks like a corpse? Though it’s a sword……

「Clang, thud……」

「Knock?」

Again? Is this going to repeat ten times? Simply repeat? Aren’t dungeon battles with life and death on the line supposed to be more like…… Well, that?

「Clang, thud……」

「Bam??」

Looks like this pattern is going to continue repeating……? Or rather, it does! Over and over, ten times……

Simply a man in black that hits swords at his feet with a stick.

Over there the silver armor is locked in a sword dance with flying swords, doing all kinds of crazy moves…… And here I am, just knocking on them.

And so they all perished. As I was gathering the living swords the Skelly Pres looked at me like a dog at the bone. ……Again? Is she asking me to give them to her? Is she actually really high maintenance?

「………Want them?」

*Nod Nod*

Looks like she does? When I lined them up for her to choose…… She took all ten of them. She didn’t leave even a single one. Even though I also wanted to fuse something with 『Staff?』if there were any good ones?

Well, she seems happy? So it’s fine, I guess?

But can she even hold all of them?

Suddenly, I remember, that I had 「Mantle of Storage – Item Storage, Evasion 10% UP, Magic Defence 10% UP, Slashing Resistance, Piercing Resistance, Blunt Damage Reduction」in one of the item slots of my 『Mantle?』. So pulling it out I gave it to her, to which she almost began jumping in joy.

Are skeletons supposed to be so emotional? Isn’t she ruining her setting? Wasn’t she some kind of big shot in this dungeon? Covered in darkness and all that? Well, she seems happy, so it’s fine though.

Putting on the mantle she then stored the swords one after another. And then after much deliberation put one of the thin ones on her waist.

Red mantle and clad in all silver. For a weapon a silver rapier.

I’m wearing a black mantle with a hood over my head and a stick in my hands……

She totally looks more like a protagonist! I’m just a random companion! Just Follower A! ……Wasn’t I the one who tamed her?

Anyway, Skelly Pres was really amazing. After seeing that I’m completely cool with her being the main hero.

Dancing with ten flying swords in a storm of steel and not losing to them one bit, each movement gracefully flowing into another, she turns and she sweeps, she jumps and she hits, everything perfectly connected. And the perfect control she showed by making every sword land at my feet…… I didn’t take even one step during the whole thing. I was delegated to simply knocking with my staff from time to time.

And so, after making an offering of swords to the Skelly Pres-sama……… Wait, aren’t I turning into her slave?

………And so we proceed to 94F.

「My adventure is not over yet!」

I tried to raise a flag. Maybe I will successfully jinx it. I don’t even care anymore. My screen time could already be over…… The end of the first arc, for the next episode please tune in for 『The Silver Knight』, or something like that?
