Outlier Skill [Storage], Proficiency Level 9999 – The Strongest Cheat Awakened After 60 Years of Hard Work – Chapter 19

Chapter 19: Martina and the Dragonmancer 9

“Well, I don’t think I should break it…!”

So, then…!

This old man charges at the Guardian with the flail still intact.

Its reaction time does not match the speed of my steps.

A simple invasion

Then a slash from the “Greatsword of Black Dragon Scales” cuts off the right hand holding the flail.

Then I picked up the flail on the ground and stored it right away.

“Okay…! Now, when you say “Armor Transformation”…?!”

The chain of the flail was extended, so I wonder if the sword of this old man will extend as well.

Doshuuuuuuu!

In an instant, the blade of the “Greatsword of Black Dragon Scales” extends.

And, unluckily, it pierces through the belly of the Guardian ahead of it.

The blade also pierces the door behind it, creating a hole.

“Ohoho…! That’s an excellent response! Then…!”

Bend at the waist and twist your body, then swing the sword in a circular motion with all your might!

“I’ll mow them all at once!”

Zugagaaggaa!

It slashes through the walls and pillars, reaping the Guardians in the process.

The guardians are destroyed in one fell swoop.

and the room is also a bit destroyed.

“Hmm. I may have gone a little too far…? I’ll have to apologize to Tina later.”

But where in the world is Tina?

I know it’s a shambles, but are there any hints here?

This old man looks around the room.

The blow from the “Greatsword of Black Dragon Scales” has scattered things, but―

I noticed an old wooden box fall from a fallen chest’s shelf.

It’s a lowly article for one that once belonged to the previous queen. Poorly made, even.

On the contrary, it stood out and drew my attention.

I took up the long, slender object and examined its contents.

On the inside was a plain old monocular.

“Huh…?! Isn’t this…?!”

It appeared to be familiar.

When they were kids, this old man gave it to Tina for her birthday.

Tina used to accompany this old man on his childish adventures. She always complained of being scared and concerned.

This old man gave it to Tina for her birthday and insisted that she look around with it and told him about the danger.

Tina was doing her best to keep this old man safe by looking around for danger.

And this is a genius with the highest levels of Holy Warrior and Great Sage. Thinking back, this old man used to make her do terrible things.

But, back then, this old man was certain that he would stand in front of Tina and protect her. It was a youthful blunder.

“Tina… You haven’t thrown this away yet, have you? In such an important location…”

It’s a bittersweet moment. I knew Tina was still waiting for this old man.

This old man puts his hand on the box’s monocular.

[Monocular with Memories]

When stored, the special ability “Presence Detection” can be used.

The information is pouring in.

“Oh… If I have this―”

I might be able to get a clue!

This old man has carefully and quietly stored away the “monocular with memories”.

“I wonder if I can detect the presence of a large enemy…”

Concentrate on your thoughts by closing your eyes.

―I know! I know!

In my mind, I see a spherical map with dots that show where enemies and allies are and how far away they are.

Barvel appears to be still in the sky near the castle.

There are many signs of enemies nearby, and it looks like more have come together since then.

But we shouldn’t be concerned about Barvel.

He’s powerful. They appear to be tightly packed together, so perhaps he’s tying them up in a bundle or something.

This old man keeps probing.

“…? Below…?! Underground? I feel a strong presence…!”

There is a strong, foreboding presence.

This is a foreshadowing of things to come.

“Is that where Tina is?! We’ve got to go!”

This old man exits the room and returns to the stairs.

A spiral staircase with a stairwell at the bottom makes up the structure.

Then―

“Stretch!”

I raise the blade to pierce the floor.

Gasp!

As a result of a stabbing in the ground.

“That’s all!”

I leap down the stairs, hilt in hand…

“Go back!”

The sword snaps back to its original length.

The body of this old man was carried downstairs.

“Yes! That’s convenient for getting around! Now how do we get down to the basement?!”

There are still large signs down there.
