The Lazy Swordmaster - Chapter 206.1
Complete defeat .
The words that emerged in the minds of all the five people who had beaten by Abyss, were “complete defeat” .
“We never succeed in attacking him…”
“… we were just beaten up by him . ”
Nara and Iril, who didn’t know the identity of Abyss, had thought that they could beat Abyss . But at the moment, they were forced to face the huge impact of failure .
“I, I’ll have you cured first . ”
The atmosphere became tense after the battle . Priesia, who had been standing by for a long time, carefully gathered the other five people to check their physical condition .
“I’ll treat Nainiae first… OK?”
Nainiae smoothed her rumpled clothes caused by Abyss with his fist, and then stared at Priesia as if she was asking “what’s the matter?”
“Why are you looking at me like this?”
“Nainiae, are you not feeling well?”
With an expression which made people feel that something strange had happened, Nainiae put down the rumpled clothes and replied .
“… No . Nothing . ”
Hearing these words, Priesia turned to look at Nara and Iril and asked about their physical condition .
“Are you two feeling well?”
“I don’t know? It’s hard to say . ”
Maybe the condition of the two people, who were confused about Priesia’s question, were similar to Nainiae . With their head tilted to one side, they couldn’t figure out whether they were feeling well .
“How about Sera and Ian?”
Since Ian had just stared at Abyss, without any physical contact with him, it was likely that Ian was not injured… But Sera may be seriously wounded as Abyss had grabbed her ankle and threw her away like a ball .
“Me, too . I’m fine . ”
Even though they had rolled forth and back on the floor or fallen to the floor just now, they were not injured at all .
Priesia, who had seen Nainiae and Nara being beaten up by Abyss, couldn’t believe it and muttered to herself . At this moment, Abyss spoke .
“Priest, are the children feeling well?”
Priesia didn’t feel strange when Abyss, who was much younger than her, directly called her Priest and she replied politely .
“I haven’t used this body to fight for a long time, so to be honest, it’s difficult for me to adapt to it . ”
Nainiae suddenly realized that what he meant was “not to be hurt” and she remembered what Riley had said before they came here .
“I’m really worried about you . ”
Nainiae was sure that Abyss would not do anything harmful to the five people including herself and Riley even though Priesia did not use the Eyes of the Saintess .
“Oh, I see . It’s very nice that we’re not injured . ”
Abyss looked at the five people who got together, nodded and sat down . He seemed to be relieved .
“The warriors… Well, because Riley took you guys here, I think you must be excellent to some extent . But since you’re so weak, I’m wondering if you could be regarded as wonderful friends . It’s very interesting . ”
Abyss, who talked to himself, laughed happily, but Nainiae and other four people showed a questioning expression .
“I didn’t intend to hurt you guys . I simply think we have to warm up before departure… really, that’s it . ”
Although Abyss looked very young, he stared at the expressions of the five people carefully in an old-fashioned way, and asked .
“Don’t you say that you are fine? I want to tell you about your strengths and weaknesses when we were warming up… Is that OK?”
It seemed that the five people were still on guard against Abyss . As everyone looked at Abyss with a sceptical look, Abyss sighed helplessly and changed the topic .
“It seems you don’t like this topic . Then I’ll talk about something else . Maybe… we can talk about something about Riley that you don’t know?”
Only Nainiae, who knew Riley’s past life, frowned, and the other four were curious .
“The stories of the Young Master we don’t know?”
“… But I have always been with the Young Master since he was born . How could there be something about Young Master that I don’t know…”
Ian, who lowered his head, wanted to deny Abyss, and Abyss couldn’t help but laugh and looked at Nainiae .
“You seem to know about that?”
Everyone’s eyes fell on Nainiae, and Nainiae, who frowned, looked at Abyss and asked .
“Should I call you… Abyss? Could you please tell me why did you ask me that question?”
Hearing that Nainiae talked to Abyss so cautiously, Priesia stared at Abyss as if she was saying “there’s indeed something interesting” .
“If you don’t want to talk about it, I’ll tell them instead . ”
“I have told lizard these things . But compared to the stories, that guy seems to be more interested in the places where Riley has lived . ”
The rest of the people who were listening to the conversation between Nainiae and Abyss began to look at each other as if they were saying “what to do next” .
They were curious about “Riley’s stories” that Abyss had mentioned, but they thought there must be some reasons why Nainiae frowned so distressed .
“I don’t intend to hurt you guys . I just want to kill time . ”
“In any case, we have to go to the world over there . It’s better if you know more things about him before departure… Since Riley is not here, don’t you think I should tell you earlier?”
Looking at Nainiae’s disapproval expression, Abyss asked with a shrug .
“Does Abyss forbid you to talk about these things?”
Riley had said that it’s better not to mention his past life, but he did not forbid others to talk about it, so Nainiae was not sure about that .
“It seems that he just warned you . ”
Abyss seemed to understand something . He nodded and continued . .
“Nara may just do what you have done . It may cause unnecessary troubles if telling others these things . But the situation is different now… You must know about his stories in order to avoid troubles when going to that world . ”
Looking at others who were curious about what they would talk about next, Abyss continued .
“It’s not a good thing to conceal the truth from team members who will go to the other world together . ”
Even though Abyss mentioned that maybe the team members would quarrel due to these things in the future, Nainiae still kept silent . Abyss looked at Nainiae with regret and praised her secretly .
“It seems Riley is very popular . ”
Abyss praised Naniniae in an envious tone, then he nodded and continued .
“Well, it seems that I have to tell you guys by myself . ”
Nainiae moved her lips, her tone changed again, and meanwhile Abyss said to her without fear .
“If Riley asks what’s going on, you can tell him that I said everything . I’m not telling lies, I’m just tell the truth, so I don’t have to worry about it . ”
“In our past life, we were deadly enemies . If Riley is angry and wants to kill me, I will run away… but it’s a pity to lose a friend who can fish together…”
Abyss looked at the four people who were on a questioning expression and began to tell the stories of Riley that they didn’t know .
