Rookie Training Part 4
A/N: end of the pitching
Oh, it’s been a while. My name is Luca Tuncuft. Is this the first time I’ve used my full name?
The training is now almost over.
Looking back, the training was full of surprises from the very first day.
I felt like my head was going to explode, because I heard facts that defied conventional wisdom and even a dragon appeared. After that, it was all a mess.
Carla scolded the late dragon called “Mr. Fab” for 30 minutes with no expression on her face and finally the dragon started to cry. It was pathetic how it didn’t show the slightest bit of dignity of the world’s most powerful, heroic tale last boss level dragon anymore…….
The dragon, who bowed his head repeatedly managed to get Carla’s permission to speak to us.
「Are these the people whom I’m training 」
He said it with a lot of dignity but on the contrary, it was funny for what we had just seen. So, I don’t want to be rude but I think that something called looseness ran in us and we got a little distracted.
Carla, who had seen that we were not in the right frame of mind, asked the dragon to “give us a good blow” perhaps to tighten our spirits. The dragon agreed and with its mighty mouth full of power, it let out a mighty breath of breath into the Goldie Wilderness.
A flash, an explosion ……, and then silence.
If I could only tell you the result, I would say that the Goldie Wilderness has transformed into the Goldie Valley. ……
We had no time to relax now that we saw such a powerful blow, we tightened up at once then listened carefully to what the dragon and Carla had to say afterwards.
It seems that what Carla said earlier was true and this dragon “Fafnir” will be training us.
Without even time to think, Carla immediately said “Training is about to start”. Well, I expected that we would be fighting demons in order to become stronger but I really haven’t heard that it’s dragons we’re fighting!
…… More importantly, you’re probably wondering how dragons can train us, right? The answer is really super simple. Just keep on attackingthe dragon. That’s really all there is to it.
It’s already absurd.
Nevertheless, the reason is surprisingly solid: attacking dragons (and mythic ones at that) builds up a little bit of experience in us and helps us level up. If you can wound them even more, it means you can earn more of the experience you get from the dragon. Moreover, that by continuing to gain experience from mythic-class enemies it will cause you to push the limits.
That’s the reason. In other words, just by attacking this dragon we can become stronger and even push the limits of our strength. It’s too good to be true, isn’t it?
I often hear that there is more to a good story than meets the eye, so I asked Ms. Carla about this and she said that since they need power in order to have us work as an employee even this level of condition would be enough to make up for the change.
However, there is a proper disadvantage as well and that is that you can’t gain any experience as a combat because you just keep attacking the opponent who doesn’t move unilaterally.
If adventurers who are just starting out were to become strong in the same way as we are, then there would be so-called “noble adventurers” who are high level adventurers but not good at tactics. I mean that adventurers who are nobles are only able to get good equipment with the help of money but they don’t have any skills of their own. I heard that many nobles lost their lives like this in the past.
well, it doesn’t matter in the end, we started training to break the limit against the dragon “Fafnir” a.k.a. “Fab”-san.
Just keep attacking Fab who is not moving. When you attack a dragon’s scales, which are even harder than steel the impact of the attack will all come back to your weapon. You can all imagine. You can take a stick of any kind and hit a rock as hard as you can with it and the pain will hit you. How’s that? Hurts, doesn’t it?
We’re attacking with everything we’ve got and we’re doing it for a target. I heard that if you can make a certain amount of scratches on Fab’s scales you know you’ve broken the limit and Carla showed me the extent of the scratches.
Carla points to one of the softest scales on a dragon’s belly and flank. There was a small scar there, about the size of a pinky fingernail. It was a small scratch, but they told me that this was a sign that we had broken through the limit. The first to react was rique. “If it’s about this level, I think I can put it on right now” she said in her usual stretched voice.
rique-san slashes at Fab-san with her beloved big sword (for some reason, carla-san had a set of our equipment). The blow was so powerful that it could cut through steel, let alone rock.
However, the result is not good at all. On the contrary, the impact was so great that Ms. Rique’s own arm went numb and she could not move it for ten minutes.
This is where our training began.
We spends most of our day attacking the fab and learns a variety of knowledge during the morning, noon, and evening meal times. The knowledge we learned varied and included cooking, minimum greetings, manners, etc., with some practice as well.
What took me longer was still pushing the limits. Even though it is a simple job, the fatigue that accumulates is not half bad. Furthermore, the dragon’s scales showed no signs of scarring and I was unable to see any signs of growth, which made me feel increasingly unmotivated. A vicious cycle that slows growth even more.
In such a situation, “sylvie” reached the limit the earliest. She was probably the best of us in terms of hard work and perseverance and she kept on training even when Rique and I started to lose a bit of motivation. In addition sylvie, who could also use the recovery magic that carla showed her though she had just learned it recovered her fatigue with the recovery magic and attacked again. She was willing to work hard to push the envelope did not spare an effort for a limit breakthrough.
Then, it is a limit breakthrough. I still vividly remember her tweeting, 『Oh, I could go…』
From there, sylvie became stronger and stronger. According to Carla when you break through the limit, you will become level 1 in the state of breaking through the limit then you will grow exponentially afterwards.
After Ms. Sylvie’s breakthrough, we regained our motivation and each of us learned the healing magic and continued the training while using it together. Not long after sylvie broke through, both of us were able to break through successfully.
After all three of us had limit break, we no longer spent most of the day training to attack dragons but spent most of the time absorbing other knowledge.
Oh, yes, that chair I can lift it now. When it comes to rique, she is able to swing it lightly with one hand. It must have been very hard to bear not being able to lift it up.
At this point, Mr. Fab did not need to be a dragon so Mr. Fab began to participate in training in human form by becoming a person.
The first time you see a dragon (a legitimate dragon). Those who cannot humanize are called sub-dragons. The three of us couldn’t hide our excitement at the moment of humanization (since we have never seen humanized dragons before). It is said that the stronger the Dragon is, the more beautiful they become when humanized, so Fab’s beauty was naturally the centre of attention.
The humanized Fabu-san was a very beautiful person with ruby eyes and jet-black hair.
What a surprise, Fab was a man. ！！！！！！！
It was probably the biggest shock when this training started.
What? The other training? No problem. It’s over.
I’m sorry it’s kind of short.
That’s the end of the training story for now.
I’m sorry if you think I’m not doing my job properly.
