This is not enough to know, we have to test more things.
So, I switched from normal bullets to ironclad bullets and pulled the trigger.
I only put one shot in, but two ironclad bullets were launched just like before.
“This one increases as well.” (Ryouta)
I mumbled to myself as I touched the slow-moving bullet.
I was then——–surprised.
It was a feeling.
In the same way that you know you can’t win against a sumo wrestler at an event, you know you can’t win against an ironclad bullet the moment you touch it.
I’m not sure whether I can do it.
With one deep breath, I grab an ironclad bullet and pull it out.
After exerting all my strength with SS Strength, even putting my weight on it (only in a mood sense), the direction of the ironclad bullet “turned”.
I used to call it a “Trash bullet”, but recently it has become an “absolute” level bullet that boasts a straight-line force that can twist space.
It was only with my power that I was able to change direction.
It was done.
This is shocking.
At the same time, I almost understood.
“So instead of increasing the number, it weakens the effect.” (Ryouta)
I tried firing a whole range of special bullets, from flames to blue flames.
All of them, without exception, turn into two shots just by loading one and launching it.
And all of them have a very weak effect.
I see, I thought to myself.
“And that’s why.” (Ryouta)
In the Shikuro dungeon Association, the president’s office.
I shot out a Trash bullet, the safest I could use and showed it to Cell.
“If you wear this ring, the number of shots increases, but the effect will weaken.” (Ryouta)
“Well, that’s just what I thought, Satou-sama.
It’s a good thing you figured out the effect of the crack stone so easily.” (Cell)
“It’s good that I figured it out, but there’s no use for it.
“I don’t know if other adventurers can do it and still get the drop.” (Ryouta)
I didn’t tell Cell the details of the Drop S, but we’ve known each other for a long time and have done a lot of things together, so he knows that I have a higher drop power than most adventurers.
“Then you can try it out.” (Cell)
Cell said and took out the fissure stone again.
He also took out the ticket and put them both on the table and offered them to me.
“I didn’t know you still had some left.” (Ryouta)
“I thought Satou-sama would need it right away, so I gave top priority to securing the ones that dropped.
Still, there was only one, though.” (Cell)
“I guess it’s pretty rare.” (Ryouta)
“You can try it to your heart’s content.” (Cell)
“Thanks, I’ll give it a try.” (Ryouta)
I said, standing up and holding out my hand towards Cell.
Cell smiled, stood up and shook my hand as well.
A figure-sized statue fell to the ground from Cell’s pocket.
“You work really quickly huh! It’s almost like a premonition!” (Ryouta)
The statue that Cell dropped was a cool pair of dungeon-crawlers.
It was a pair of me and Margaret.
When I came back to the dungeon, I had Margaret with me.
“Sorry, for calling you out of the blue.” (Ryouta)
“No, this is fine.
If it’s for Ryouta-san, I’ll go through fire and water.” (Margaret)
As usual, Margaret was dressed in a pure white princess dress and said with a slight blush on her cheeks.
Although I said that Cell had a “predictive level” , this is certainly the best way to understand it.
She is a level 99 adventurer with an F in all combat abilities and an A in all drop abilities, an extreme status.
She has the best drop ability of all the adventurers when she specializes in killing.
Moreover, all drops are high and all combat power is the lowest of all.
It can be used in any dungeon.
To specialize in this, she has four knights with her: Lat, Sosha, Prey, and Builder.
These knights are extremely loyal to her.
When I explained this to Sakura recently about the reality of the situation.
“You’re the princess of the Knight Sir!” (Sakura)
That’s how she summed it up to me, which may or may not be true.
I smiled at Margaret and thanked her first.
Are your knights coming with you today” (Ryouta)
“They are here today as well.
Lat, Socha, Prey, Builder.” (Margaret)
A moment later, four knights appeared beyond her.
I had no idea when they appeared, even though they were in my field of vision.
I thought they were all ninjas.
“The first thing I’ll share with you is that after you use an item, an Orc King-like creature will appear on a chariot.
After a certain amount of damage, the chariot will break down and the Orc King will dismount, but when he does so, he will receive instant death damage with a range effect.
Can you cope with that” (Ryouta)
“This is nothing.”
One of the knights answered immediately.
The other three looked at me with serious eyes, as if to say yes.
“Uhhh, ……, well, I’d like to get the tactical details.” (Ryouta)
In any case, it’s enough damage to penetrate Absolute Rock’s stone absolute defense and my SS status.
I knew I had to get a good grasp of it, so I went further and asked.
“What’s it like and how are you going to tackle this” (Ryouta)
“It will be done with respect to our princess.”
“No, I don’t mean that.
I mean more specifically your techniques and principles.” (Ryouta)
“If you are a true knight in the service of your princess, you can do everything that concerns her.”
“We are not true knights, but the Princess is a true lord, and there are four of us.”
“Nothing is impossible when there are four half-knights.”
“I see, I have no idea what you four just said.” (Ryouta)
I don’t know, but I could tell that they were very confident —– or rather, certain.
I mean, it even sounds like a definitive statement.
Well, I guess we’ll find out.
“All right, then.
I’ll do all the attacking.
Margaret, I’ll give you a signal when it’s time to finish.” (Ryouta)
“Yes, I understand.” (Margaret)
The knights decided to let Margaret concentrate on her defence.
It’s good that they are confident, but it’s safer to let them focus on that since they don’t know anything.
With a rough idea of what to do, I took out my ticket and the crack stone and used it.
As before, the Orc King appeared on his chariot.
I was also wondering if the Repetition would work, but I want Margaret to defeat it.
I’m going to have to see if Drop A (a regular blaster) will work.
I can’t do a lot of damage, so I jumped out of the way and tore into it with normal bullets.
Fortunately, once you get used to it, it’s a pattern, so you can cut down on it as you see fit.
And then —- the Orc King gets out of the chariot.
Since it was my second time, I used Absolute Rock stone beforehand and fired a series of recovery shots before that “comes”.
For a moment I was knocked unconscious, but it wasn’t a big deal as I was able to recover with a recovery bullet shortly afterwards.
The Orc King, completely dismounted, glances at Margaret while attacking with more regular bullets.
She hasn’t lost her elegant demeanor.
She was calm, as if nothing had happened.
………The knights are incredible in their own right.
They’ve really defended Margaret.
With that level of impressiveness, I cut down the Orc King.
When I feel like it’s about to die, I stop.
“I understand.” (Margaret)
Margaret ran towards it, dragging her greatsword with her.
It was not a flattering move.
It’s not that she’s bad, but it looks kinda weird because she’s dragging a big sword.
Nevertheless, she ran in and swung her greatsword at the brain of the Orc King, whose limbs had somehow been bound by something that looked like a shadow.
This is the first time that I have ever seen such a thing.
It worked, and the Orc King fell.
“I’ve done it.” (Margaret)
Margaret picked up the dropped ring and smiled like a flower blooming.
