Deadly Sins Sorcerer vs. S-Rank Adventurer————conclusion
The word “Envy” has two connotations.
Hatred and jealousy.
Hatred and jealousy of those who have advantages over oneself. It is a negative emotion that is regarded aggressively.
Therefore, it is included in the seven deadly sins that humans have.
Now, Julis was envious of Caesar.
Seeing Caesar’s world-class ability, he was envious of the power he did not have.
Julis rushed across the field, and at once, he closed in on Caesar.
Caesar swung his sword at the approaching Julis.
A straight downward attack————but, Julis took the attack without avoiding it.
The difference in physical strength between Caesar and Julis was so obvious.
While Julis is a sorcerer, Caesar is a swordsman who devotes himself to strengthening his body.
Despite this, Julis was able to take the attack without losing stance.
He then slid the sword to the right and twisted his body to deliver a big kick to Caesar’s flank.
As soon as he did, Caesar also blocked Julis’ kick by retracting his free hand while keeping his sword intact.
The power of that kick caused a sound of pain to leak out from Caesar.
He was more powerful than before, his stance was different, then his speed, ability to react, and judgment of the situation were definitely not that of a student.
This was something that Caesar was familiar with.
Yes, this is————
“Isn’t that, me, Julis Anderberg?”
“I told you, didn’t I? I’ll take it all.”
Julis’ sword was deflected and Caesar, while surprised, stepped in and thrust his sword at Julis’ neck.
But Julis avoided it by twisting his neck minimally, and swinging his sword down in response.
“Wonderful…… this power, speed, skill, agility that I don’t have————Aah…… it’s worth being envious of.”
“Good grief! You freaking keep amazing me!”
Amid the battle, Caesar’s voice returned to excitement.
He gleefully swung his sword at Julis, his face beaming with joy.
“I’m a diligent person————so I’ll entertain sensei more.”
Julis, who is inferior in speed, strength, experience, and skill, was competing with Caesar, who is an S-class adventurer.
The rest of the students who continued to watch from the edge were speechless at the scene.
Julis’ Invidia doesn’t deprive everything of the opponents————it mimics them.
Whether it is magic, swordsmanship, or physical ability, they’re all mimicked without exception.
This is Julis’ deadly sin, born from his envy and hatred.
Julis, who is inferior in every way to others, created this sorcery out of his craving.
This is why, even after several tens of minutes had passed, he was still able to compete with Caesar, who had a clear difference in their ability.
————However, Julis couldn’t use his sorcery forever.
It took a lot of mental energy to perform the sorcery, and the physical fatigue accumulated.
Therefore, his rivalry was starting to break down————
“ORA ORA! What’s wrong? Are you tired already?”
The movement of Julis’ sword was starting to dull.
The battle that had been going on for tens of minutes was slowly coming to an end.
“You’ve lost your sharpness, Julis Anderberg!”
“You’re going all-out with a mere student…!?”
“On the contrary, it’s impossible if I’m not going all-out!”
The approaching sword attack forced Julis to go defensive.
No matter how much he tried to mimic everything about his opponent, in the end————he couldn’t change his own body, its fundamentals. In addition to that, the mental strength Julis was being reduced even while doing it.
Therefore, it was Julis who reached the limit first.
In the midst of his defensive, Julis took the opportunity to slip his sword into Caesar’s chest.
“It’s a foolish move!”
Caesar cut up the side of his sword with all his might.
This caused Julis’ sword to go wide upwards————so, his torso was now completely open.
Caesar didn’t miss it.
“It’s over, Julis Anderberg!”
With those words, Caesar thrust his sword straight at the exposed torso.
At the same time as Julis’ word, Caesar’s sword was approached into his torso.
However, the sword never reached him and made a dull sound instead. It was as if he was clad in steel armor.
Then Julis moved the coordinates away from Caesar.
It was not he was going to————get poised again for charging.
But it was because he was at his limit.
This time, both his body and mind have reached the limit. Julis thrust his sword into the ground and broke his knees.
It seemed that The Sorcery of Sloth, Acedia, which prevented all objects and magic from penetrating his body, was his final attempt.
Seeing that, Caesar sheathed his sword in the scabbard without pursuing.
“I guess we’re done here…….”
Caesar was very, very unusually excited, but he hadn’t forgotten his job as an instructor.
He’d already figured out————what Julis was capable of.
“Inept……huh? I don’t get where the hell which parts of him being inept————He’s obviously, equivalent to S-rank.”
He had fought this long and far against an S-rank adventurer.
At that point, he was more capable than an A-rank adventurer. And yet, Julis is still a new student————so, how can he be labeled as inept?
Caesar thought, catching his ragged breath, that rumors were unreliable.
“Julis, are you okay!?”
Perhaps she’d read that the game is over, Cecilia, the Saintess, was the first to rush over to Julis.
“Ceciliaa… I’m, tired…… I want a lap pillooow~……”
“I understand! Is it okay to do it here!?”
“If doing it here, we’ll get caught up in the next game, you know?”
Julis was terrified of the impatient Cecilia.
Yulis, who was already too lazy to move his body, didn’t think he could handle a match in the middle of a training camp.
He was grateful, but he wondered if she was trying to kill him.
“Yes, yes, hurriedly get out of here.”
This time, Anastasia came to Julis.
Julis was grabbed by his neck and dragged to the edge of the training field.
“Aah, can you please be a little more gentle with me? If you can, take me to a soft bed. Also, bring me a lot of sweets and pretty big sises.”
“Don’t you dare take advantage of me!”
“…… You poor smol breasted lady.”
Julis cussed the stingy Anastasia.
When Anastasia heard this, a blue vein appeared on her forehead————
“Wa, wait a minute, Anastasia-sama? Why are you casting a body enhancement spell now? ……I have a bad feeling about this, please let me go, please! I’m really begging you! …… Stop it!————!”
She maximized her body strengthening magic and threw Julis to the edge of the training center with all her might.
The cry of Julis reverberated, and soon a loud crashing sound echoed through the training center.
(Ku ku……, this year’s new students look interesting ……)
Caesar smiled at the sight.
He was looking forward to the future and felt a sense of joy that he had not experienced recently.
“Who’s next? I can still do it!”
Even though the match between the sorcerer of the deadly sin called Inept and the pinnacle of talented person was over, the first lesson of S class continued.
(……if it is that person————)
And again, a silver-haired girl looked at Julis.
This time, it was not with interest, but with conviction————.
