Chapter 481 – Split double bullets
Published by Shiro on 4th October 2021
I pick up the ring and stare at it intently.
The shape is different, so the effect must be different.
The question is, to what extent is it different
“I smell a breakthrough.”
I’m startled by the suddenness of the conversation.
I turn around and take a few steps back, whereupon I regain my composure and check who it is.
“Cell ……Why are you here” (Ryouta)
“I had a dream during my afternoon nap.” (Cell)
“A dream” (Ryouta)
“That’s right, a dream in which Satou-sama made a further leap.
It must have been a premonition, but alas, a dream is a dream, and all but the most important points have fallen through the cracks of my fingers.” (Cell)
“I have so many things I want to retort, plus you’re unusually poetic.
What are you even saying! The reason it didn’t become a retort is because Cell doesn’t blow smoke or say the wrong thing about such things.
It’s like when you go to a new dungeon and Eve says, “It smells like carrots,” you know it’s going to drop carrots.
I saw the ring.
a dream that will make me even more successful.
The timing of this is definitely related to the ring.
Let’s try it.
I put on the ring and loaded my revolver with normal bullets.
First shot, the usual test.
It’s the simplest, most basic, and therefore the most appropriate benchmark.
I pull the trigger against the wall.
“Oh, that’s double the normal.” (Cell)
Cell says with mixed cheer as he sees the bullet smashed into the wall.
“You can tell” (Ryouta)
“Of course I do, there’s nothing I don’t know about Satou-sama’s bravery.” (Cell)
“Don’t worry, I don’t have the tact to invade your privacy.
I only want to show the world the dignity and bravery of Satou-sama.” (Cell)
“Isn’t that a double entendre” (Ryouta)
It’s not a double entendre, is it
That’s who Cell is.
Personally, I think this kind of pervert is more trustworthy than a normal person.
Because perverts are indifferent to anything that doesn’t interest them.
“You’re not interested in my pants, are you” (Ryouta)
“Pants You mean underwear” (Cell)
“Of course not, not even Satou-sama would be inferior to those trousers.” (Cell)
Well, I was wondering what I’d do if you started saying that.” (Ryouta)
I’m not talking about my underpants in the first place, I’m talking about normal women’s underpants.
I guess I’m just not interested enough to even get that into my head.
So you can trust him.
He’s not really interested in anything other than my “bravery”.
“Well, …… it’s twice as powerful.” (Ryouta)
It’s exactly double.” (Cell)
“You know better than I do —— how about this” (Ryouta)
I loaded a flaming bullet and fired it with the ring still on.
The flames hit the wall and burst into flames, forming a familiar magic circle.
The flames, too, burned bigger than usual.
And then I glanced at the cell.
“Ohh, it’s exactly double the amount.” (Cell)
Whether he sensed my intentions or not, he gave me the impression I wanted to know.
I tried a few things.
Frozen bullets, Homing bullets, lightning bullets …… etc.
I tried all kinds of attacking bullets, and Cell said that they were all “exactly double”.
I myself thought it was “about double”, so I guess it was double the power.
I even took it off and shot it just to be sure, but the power was back to normal.
By the way, there was no change in the bullets such as recovery bullets, iron wall bullets and restraint bullets.
It was a little unexpected because I thought it would’ve doubled the recovery bullets, not to mention the iron wall and restraint.
However, this was easy to understand.
The power of attack is doubled.
I like that kind of clarity.
“Yes, we also have to test if it’s real time.” (Ryouta)
“Real time” (Cell)
“Yeah, let me show you.” (Ryouta)
That’s what we ended up talking about in the previous ring.
It was quicker to show him how it works than to explain it from scratch, so I shot two more straightforward normal bullets.
I shot it while it was on, and then removed it before it landed.
Then I shot it while it was off, and put it on just before it landed.
As a result, the one I put on just before the bullet landed was more powerful.
“Hmm, I see.
So that’s what you mean by ‘real time’.” (Cell)
The power was in real time.” (Ryouta)
“The ‘power’” (Cell)
“Aah, let’s see, …….” (Ryouta)
I guess I’ll have to explain that one.
I was thinking about how to explain about the previous ring, when I heard…
As if struck by lightning, something flashed through my mind.
The image was still vague and scattered, but I struggled to gather it up and give it shape.
As soon as I had figured it out, I pulled out a swinging doll from the pocket of my ground-eater.
“Oh, that’s exactly what I expected of Satou-sama.” (Cell)
I smash the doll, ignoring Cell’s impressed look.
I heard a voice saying “Aaah ……” as if it was a waste of time, but I ignored it.
Sakura’s ability has brought both rings to me.
I put both rings on.
I load a normal bullet and pull the trigger.
The three bullets that split apart flew out at once.
Immediately, I take off the two rings and replace them with new, more powerful ones.
And then the bullets landed.
Cell shouted with delight.
And so it should be.
The three bullets that were split by the rings were all twice as powerful as usual.
It’s a dreamy combination of the best of both worlds.
