“Kenji! What’s this guy’s status?!”
“It’s an Ogre Lv20! Average stats are around 1000, no magic! No special skills either!”
“Good, that’s perfect! Yuma, Kyoshirou, focus on close combat around Daichi!
The rear guard should coordinate with Ayaka for long-range attacks!
Akane, prepare the ‘Teleport’ for emergencies!
Can you do it?”
Currently, we were at a hunting ground, a day trip away from the royal capital where the castle is, being led by Ivy-san and her knights to level up.
And we were beating up the biggest monster in this area, a huge ogre.
Well, I’m pretty much out of the fight except for appraisal!
The ogre, being beaten up by my classmates, roared and swung its club around in a rampage.
However, its attacks were blocked by Goda’s great sword, its arm was cut off by a sword slash, it was blown away by Maki’s magic, and finally, it was easily finished off by Shindou and died.
Experience points came in, and my Lv went up.
But I’m not even Lv10 yet.
“Hmm. Excellent. Even though you’re still at a level that’s inferior to even novice adventurers, you’re already able to defeat ogres.
As expected of the heroes.”
Normally, an ogre is a monster that even experienced adventurers have to form a party to deal with.
The fact that we can hunt it without any danger at a low level shows just how cheat-like the heroes are.
My classmates, who are such heroes, were praised by the beautiful Ivy-san, and most of the boys were smitten with her.
The girls weren’t as much, but they seemed to enjoy being praised, and most of them were smiling.
The only ones who weren’t so happy were me and Sorachan-sensei.
I, of course, am not amused by the difference in combat power between me and the others.
On the other hand, I think Sorachan-sensei is bad for the heart to see her students doing something dangerous like fighting.
She was always on alert during the battle, ready to evacuate everyone at any time.
By the way, there are only 10 classmates here, including me.
Our class has 20 people excluding Honjo-san, so it’s exactly half.
The other half didn’t die. . .but they had unique skills that were non-combat, couldn’t stand the hard gore of monster organs, or couldn’t handle the sensation of killing living creatures.
For various reasons, they declined to fight and stayed in the castle.
Well, it seems that the non-combat group is also leveling up.
But unlike our combat group, they don’t seem to be aiming for big game like ogres.
They’re just hunting small fry, and they’ll stop once they reach a level where they can defend themselves at a minimum.
If they form a party with the knights and level up, they can gain experience points without having to kill themselves.
And, I’m working as a member of the combat group, albeit reluctantly.
My combat power is low, but appraisal is still useful.
They’re just after my appraisal!
Someday, I’ll definitely go on a rampage!
Speaking of which, I feel like my lack of talent is ingrained.
All the combat group members, except me, have mastered true equipment, but I can’t use it.
Sorachan-sensei can’t use it either, but she’s like a lifeline in case of emergency, not a combatant.
No, if I say that, I’m not a combatant either. . .
I need to stop thinking like this!
Let’s go with Carpaccio-sensei’s direct teaching, positive thinking!
I’ll be able to use true equipment eventually, and I’ll go on a rampage with cheats!
I’ll crush the Demon Lord’s army!
In this way, we continued to level up.
According to Ivy-san, “At this rate, we’ll be able to make our debut very soon.”
I’ll train and get stronger by then!
. . .But, Instructor Carpaccio hasn’t returned.
There’s no word from him, I wonder if he’s really okay.
I’m a bit worried and anxious.
Along with the anxiety of whether I can really become strong, I feel like my thoughts are going in a negative direction.
Compared to that, the others seem to be carefree, it’s nice.
Ah, I’m envious of the cheat hero.
I was thinking about such things, I didn’t understand at that time.
This world is not definitely for us to cheat and dominate, a fact that is too obvious.
And, I didn’t know at that time.
The time when a monster named harsh reality stands in front of us heroes who were excited about coming to a different world, was approaching right there.
