~ Chapter 91: Battle for the fluffy (Part 2) ~

[Kalderan's point of view]

Ever since I spoke with Alkelios last night, I knew there was a high chance that this escort mission would turn into a fight. As they say, don't look for trouble because trouble will find you. In my case, I would have preferred if trouble took a detour until we reached the next stop.

It was when I saw the relliar girl jump into Alkelios arms that I knew I had to make my choice. Sticking with Alkelios would most likely mean making enemies of the Black Company, but losing my only friend was even worse.

Once I drew my weapons and faced the merchant, my choice was made clear.

“You are fool, Kalderan. Always were one and you always will be one.” said Ragna.

“Maybe, but I would rather kick a goblin in the butt than brush the teeth of a dragon.” I replied.

This was a common saying among adventurers in these parts. It meant that you have to choose your battles wisely or else you would end up dead.

With my weapons drawn, I faced my old party members. I had no intention of surrendering to them or abandoning Alkelios. Ragna, Magar, and Reva were all ready to fight me. They displayed their confident smiles and took a step closer to me. Only Risha gave signs that she was uncertain of what to do.

Despite being with the rest of this bunch, I never saw her as someone who loved to fight against other human beings. If she needed to defend herself, she could be ruthless, but when it came to being the one on the offensive, she preferred to threaten, to use insulting words, or pull nasty pranks, but she would never directly attack with the intent to kill.

“Enough chit-chat! Just kill him already!” Magar, the vanguard adventurer said as he raised his shield and prepared his big hammer.

“I agree.” Reva said as he place an arrow in his bow and aimed it at me.

“I don't think...” Risha tried to say as her worried gaze moved between me and them.

“Risha, stay out of this if you don't have the guts to spill blood!” Ragna barked back at her.

I took off the safety on my SMG and prepared to dodge out of the arrow's path.

“Get him!” Ragna ordered.

The arrow flew at me, but I dodged to the right. Magar, expecting this move of mine, he rushed towards me with his shield. Ragna moved to the side to take me out in a pincer attack, the only problem was that Risha didn't cut me off on the other side, she remained close to the carriage, keeping her hands on the hilt of her daggers, but not unsheathing them yet.

I jumped out of the way and then aimed my SMG at Magar. Pulling the trigger, I let loose a rain of bullets on him, but his armor stood steady. This was a simple cover fire, my aim was Reva.

Running past Magar, I aimed one gun at Ragna and shot at him, while with the other I aimed at the archer. The redhead was forced to jump back to avoid my bullets, but Reva wasn't so lucky. He used his cloak to defend himself. If it was a normal one, he would have been dead, but the strengthening enchants on his clothes turned it into a bulletproof armor. The difference was that he couldn't stop the force of the impact completely.

He screamed in pain and dropped on the ground. His body, although it wasn't pierced, it did have a lot of new bruises on it, and maybe even a rib or two broken.

Ragna rushed towards me, while Magar moved in to protect Reva. I jumped back and avoided Ragna's sword, shooting a few bullets at him while I did so. His armor stopped several of them, but a bullet was still able to graze his right shoulder. As soon as I landed on my feet, I wanted to run to the opposite side, but one of the mercenaries who fought with Alkelios was standing right there.

While I could take on my former party members, I couldn't raise a finger against those hired guns.

“I got you now!” Magar shouted as he bashed into me with his shield.

The impact sent me rolling on the ground. I got up as soon as I came to a stop, and avoided Ragna's blade.

“I'm surprised you aren't injured after that.” Magar said.

“I have a friend who offered to enchant my armor.” I showed him a smirk.

Whatever Alkelios did to my armor, it certainly increased its defensive capabilities. It was something far beyond what the local merchants could offer me. It was too bad that I didn't get to witness the whole process though. I was out shopping for supplies at that time.

“P-Please, Kalderan, give up... you can't win.” Risha tried to persuade me.

“I'm sorry, but this battle isn't in your favor.” I said as I reloaded my guns and prepared for the next round.

“B-But...” Risha tried to say, but Ragna cut her off.

“Stay out of this, woman! If you are too much of a coward to join us, then don't stand in our way!” he shouted.

“I'm not afraid... it's just that... fighting against Kalderan and...” she said.

“Leave her be, Ragna, Risha is good to use against monsters not against other humans.” Magar said.

“Tch! Useless woman.” Ragna spat as he squeezed the hilt of his sword and glared at me.

I listened to their conversation, but I didn't intervene. It was better if Risha didn't join them. Fighting against three was easier than fighting against four, and she was also the type to get in close and aim for the vitals or tendons in the limbs.

Ragna attacked me again at the same time as Magar moved in with his giant hammer. Reva was still recovering from my attack. He popped a healing potion and gulped it down. I aimed my gun at his bottle, but Magar placed himself between us, blocking the path of my bullets.

Clicking my tongue, I retreated a few steps and tried to attack them from afar, but Ragna was getting impatient. He gave up on complete defense and dashed towards me as fast as he could. Magar was well protected from the start thanks to his heavy armor, but he was the slowest out of all of us.

“Just die already!” Ragna shouted when he got close enough to attack me.

I dodge and shot a few bullets at him before I was forced to jump to the side to avoid Magar's shield bash.

Reva recovered and prepared to shoot an arrow at me. Magar and Ragna stood between us and forced me to back away from him, giving them the advantage. The sudden pressure released by Alkelios' sword helped create a moment of confusion among them, which I used to retreat to a safe distance.

This whole party was one made out of non-magicians. If they had someone who could shoot fireballs at me, I would have been in serious trouble. Even so, I had to admit, that I wasn't as weak as I was when I left them. The old me, the one before meeting Alkelios, couldn't have fought against these three like I did now. Back then, I didn't have the speed or the reflexes needed to dodge these fast sword attacks.

That was why I felt like I could win now if I gave it my all, and knowing this made me realize just how much I had grown thanks to Alkelios' help.

Still, it was true that my attacks as they were couldn't do anything against their armors and weapons. I had gained a lot of points in strength and speed, but a bullet's damage fundamentally remained unchanged. These weapons of mine helped a weakling become strong, but they didn't grow together with their user's strength. This was their flaw, their disadvantage, and for a while, I really thought that I couldn't do anything about it, that my only hope was to invent new weapons that were far more powerful than what I had.

Acquiring a new skill from the God-like changed this whole matter.

Seeing the three of them recover from the distraction caused by Alkelios' sword, I decided to use it for the first time in actual combat. There was no need to hesitate now, no need to test out my strength anymore.

[Eel Tapper!]” I chanted when I saw Ragna closing in with a dash and raising his sword up to strike me down.

His smile showed full confidence in his skills. His eyes looked down upon me as a weakling he could crush any time. He didn't waver. He didn't hesitate. He wanted to cut me down where I stood no matter if we knew each other from before or not.

With my chant, I felt my Magic Energy filling the bullet loaded in the barrel of my right SMG. The enchant changed it into something far more powerful and far more deadly than what I had shot until now. I could only use one bullet at a time, but it was more than enough.

I aimed the gun at his head and pulled the trigger.

BANG!

It sounded like a revolver, but the recoil was non-existent.

An ordinary 9 mm bullet shot from one of my SMG could pierce through a 5 mm thick plate. Normal armor was shredded by these weapons, but not enchanted one, which could make it withstand an impact force up to 4 or 6 times higher.

When I designed my SMG, I used the Vityaz-SN as a model, but I wasn't able to reproduce its modern performance. If anything, they could be compared more to an UZI in terms of accuracy and rate of fire. I was constantly trying to improve them, and reaching my current stage of development has been a great success for me.

Still, the bullets I loaded into my clips were normal lead point ones. I couldn't reproduce anything else like the explosive ones or the armor piercing ones. I didn't know how they worked and what they were made out of. I tried countless times to make them, but I failed miserably every time I tried.

This time, however, with [Eel Tapper!], I could give my normal 9 mm lead point bullets the same penetration power as a 12.7x108 mm armor piercing bullet for the OSV-96 anti-material rifle. Back on Earth, a 50 cal bullet like that could pierce through a 25 mm thick steel plate.

In other words, the average enchanted armors of the human Knights in this human Kingdom could easily withstand a barrage of bullets from anything below a 50 cal sniper rifle. If Russia's armies went against the Ten Sword Kingdom's army, only the tanks and bombers would be able to make a difference, otherwise, the soldiers on the ground would be unable to do anything against them.

For me, it was quite the shock when I realized how powerful enchanted armors were on this planet. That was why my firearms had been nothing but a subject of ridicule for the adventurers in Soldra. As for Alkelios' armor... I doubt even nukes would have any effect on it.

However, from this day on, my weapons would be mocked no more!

The enchanted bullet I fired, was charged with enough Magic Energy to turn it into a 50 cal armor piercing tip one, but that wasn't all. I also added the enchant capable of releasing upon impact up to ten times more force. To make it safe for my guns, I added on it a third enchant which made it possible for my bullet to absorb the recoil of my weapon upon firing it and use it to amplify its own impact force.

I didn't tell Alkelios yesterday, but once I realized how powerful [Eel Tapper!] was, I immediately spent all of my remaining points into upgrading it. Now, I could add on a bullet up to three different enchants of various elements, and I had barely started to tap into the potential of this skill.

As a result, the bullet that I fired at Ragna's face simply ignored the enchants of his armor and pierced through his head. The impact force released made his head explode like a watermelon, sending his brain matter all over the place. His body stumbled and fell limp on the ground.

Magar and Reva stopped in their tracks and looked at me with big eyes and opened mouths.

I only stopped for a moment to look at my gun and then at the body laying at my feet.

I did this... I thought and then I looked at the other two.

Magar turned red from anger and dashed towards me. I charged up another bullet with double the penetration power the other one had and aimed it at his chest.

When I pulled the trigger, Magar was sent flying back from the impact, his shield had a massive hole in the middle and his chest was crushed inward. The man died instantly.

Seeing this, Reva flinched and tried to run away. I aimed my gun at him and whispered:

[Eel Tapper!]

I pressed the trigger.

BOOM!

The bullet flew through the air and made a hole through his chest. He stopped and turned to look at me once.

This wasn't the first time I saw the eyes of a dying man, and I wasn't as impressed as I was back them. This man, although he fled, had tried to kill me without remorse. Given the chance, he would have taken my life no questions asked.

I lowered my gun and took my finger off the trigger.

“It's over.” I said.

[Alkelios' point of view]

My friend's battle took my breath away. It was that intense, and those loud bangs from this guns certainly caught everyone's attention. The only ones left to challenge us were the merchant and that woman Risha, but she was in no state to fight. As soon as Kalderan shot a bullet through Ragna's head, she fell back on the ground, trembling and watching in shock as her other companions were taken out one after another.

While Kalderan was recovering from the battle, I walked over to the relliar kitten.

“It's over now.” I told her with a smile.

“Over?” she asked as she perked her ears up and twitched them cutely.

With the loud noise from our battle, she got scared and curled up in a ball on the ground.

“Yes, little one.” I said as I gently patted her on the head.

“Nya~ Thank you, mister...” she said.

“My name is Alkelios, and that man over there is Kalderan. What's your name?” I asked her as I gently petted her as I would a cat.

“Nya~ My name? My name is Tamara, nya~!” she said as she looked up at me with her cute eyes and adorable smile.

Fish Nya?
I had a feeling her name was Tamara, she did the same things to our MC in MA.
Thanks for the chapters. I like how you used the same name from your other work to get people guessing.
Merry Christmas and happy new year. 🙂

Well, that’s odd. What is it with baby fluffies named Tamara?

still annoyed at his latest bout or “must blend in” passivism and now that I know he literally did nothing as people where being skinned beside him because a guard told him not to look really pisses me off. he like a lot of other characters in DragomirCM’s stories lately has lost almost any likeability I had for the character. if a person with the power to prevent tragedy refuses to act they are as awful as the one who commits the tragedy. the fact he could destroy the entirety of the corrupt nobility easily by either force or a… Read more »

yes that’s why I want it to go back to having characters I don’t dislike

Well he is in another kingdom, respect the people and law is the minimum, else he would be one of those dudes who enforce hes powa over everything next to him and everyone, people like that is know as dictators did you know? But now that he have a real reason to turn off the friend mode we can expect some people flying, the nice touch was even with a perfect excuse to kill on sight, he still not corrupted by hes power… for now.

Faruel
Guest

in my opinion, when dealing with any person or country that has a bad reputation friend mode must be earned. this country is blatantly corrupt (hell just look at what they did to the heroes sent to try and save them) and the only reason we follow the laws and orders of the corrupt is that we don’t have the power to challenge them…Alkelios has power in spades plus not every dictator in history was evil look at Lee Kuan Yew, Josip Broz Tito and France-Albert René

René ah René, that could lead to so much talk… Anyway do you remember the god last chat? That he would be sent to a human area with all sort of “things to solve” and he would be given a chance to learn the otherside of the coin? Yeah the humans until now, the ones of the original magical world, most of then are trash, like 98%, the heroes were to mix and add some quality but even the god say that things were going way wrong there, wat he need is not a robocop with guns blazing fire to… Read more »

Well, we have already been teased that Tamara is something more than she appears/lets on, so the author can do really whatever he pleases with the characters he creates. He wanted a Tamara here, so, there is one. If you don’t like it, get over it.

As a side note. . . . When I read the “My name is Tamara, nya~!” the only thoughts that went through my head was “Oh god.”

Thanks for the chapter~
I guess it’s a background story? It’s not very likely that this is after MA ’cause Ilsyore isn’t likely to just lay around if one of his wives disappear into another world (if it is), oh and her strength and personality are also far different.

So thats why both stories have Dayuks!
(The wolf creatures)

Question is… which story happens first?
Is Alkelios’s story the past?
If so, how did the dragon kingdom fall so much…?

forgotten_fate
Guest
Not really, author has stated multiple times that the story isn’t in same world as MA whenever people ask. He just has a habit of making several of his stories have similarities that cause misunderstandings repeatedly, so while similar this world has nothing to do with the world of MA. I don’t think I’d have chosen to reuse a character name and race from another story in this one but to each their own. However unlike MA I hope this Tamara ends up as their adopted daughter since both his wife and Alkelios himself love fluffy and I know Seryanna… Read more »

Dont forget that Tamara is more than she appears and has some relation to the gods which she currently hides. Nothing says she couldnt have come from a parallel world.

Its highly unlikely the author would do this without some reason, moreover use it as a cliffhanger if it wasnt important.

Jake
Guest

that is true but it has been hinted at that Tamara might be immortal or a goddess or a dimension traveler so i wouldn’t be surprised if it was technically the same Tamara of MA

Beb
Guest

alkilois may help build said immortality, or divinity, or dimension hoppality

Crywolfseven
Guest

This is my hope too. I still think it will happen though I will admit I was thrown off when her name was mentioned. I was sure she was going to be adopted by him though I don’t know if she will become a wife. I mean in MA Tamara was basically adopted then too at first she was a slave then basically a pet then she became a wife. I would like this Tamara to become a daughter instead of just repeating MA Tamara’s plot line.

Zanaria
Guest

Actually if this story happened first then it would explain why the Tamara in MA was stronger than she made herself appear.

forgotten_fate

I always got the impression that she was some sort of hidden Diety that was relaxing in the mortal plane more than anything myself.

honestly tough he should make them in the same universe at least

Beb

By extrapolating from other books, i can predict that either, the rulers die and mc is crowned king through either hostil take over, blood relation, or the heirs are dead, or the heirs give throne to mc willingly and the mc renames it. in this universe, i predict that the current rulers will be killed while alki and wife are away. when they retern, alki sets up a democracy . however, when the two leave again it is taken over hostilly, so when alkilois returns, he places a curse on the new king and queen, as revenge so not only… Read more »

I think, in MA they live in a small part of the world which is closed in a magic barrier, and outside of it are other continent, then yep we can hope it’s the same.

forgotten_fate
Guest
While true and there’s lots left to explore on MA world, author stated the 2 stories are separate and not on the same world. I actually prefer that because on the one side, you would be able to hope that by searching the planet you’d eventually find this side and merge stories and have crossovers etc. But on the other side of things, that limits what that world has to offer and this way each story’s world has much more to explore and new things to find that belong to them alone. For MA personally I’m looking forward to Nanya’s… Read more »

I think most of us know that this isn’t the same world since dungeons don’t work the same, but that doesn’t mean this can’t be a crossover between “universes” since there are god likes and reincarnation that can explain anything. (Though it would be for the best if it isnt related)

Crossover kitty? Possibly explain the back ground of Tamara from magic academy? Possible road to God hood or reincarnated? Find out next time on 100 Luck!

Really

I highly suggest everyone checking out “The Blessing of 118 Gods” the parrell universe theory is a very plossible connection between these stories expecially if you consider the hints given about Tamera in MA and the fact that if they are conected we don’t know which story started first or if that are occuring conjointly. This also goes with the hints about issues with the time line our favorite author has been giving us. But whether I’m right or completely wrong thank you for the chapter!
