I’ve Been Taken to Another World Since I’ve Gone and Tried Playing With the Little Girl Compilation - Chapter 4
Translator: Black lotus
I let the doll hold one of the western swords that I created and started fighting with some pause. It is a distance that could be closed in an instant if you have physical ability and skill. However, we don’t dare to do so in order to give up the first move.
I am waiting for the opponent to attack, but the doll doesn’t attack to take advantage of an opening here. It didn’t even make a faint shrinking while standing still.
However, it’s basically not possible for me to create an opening. It’s possible to continue this standoff as long as your concentration lasts, but this stalemate is no fun to continue for several hours. Hence, I blatantly created an opening. I took my gaze off the doll and looked in a different direction. Although he hasn’t diverted his attention, it’s still a big gap.
Soon a sharp wind noise reached my ears. When I returned my gaze to the doll, the doll was aiming at my shins and cleaving at me. It seems that it dared to discard its small tricks and cut at me head-on. I could jump upwards to avoid it… but I chose to backstep to avoid it and retreat slightly with my right foot on the axis.
However, flying lightly is not enough to completely escape from the doll’s aim, and the doll stepped in further and tried to force the attack on my right leg. If I were an ordinary person, I wouldn’t even be able to react and got my right leg cut off…
With a high-pitched metallic sound, I stepped on the doll’s sword with my left foot. If I step through, I can prevent the attack, but I used the sword as a foothold and did a forward rollover jump over the doll. In my upside-down field of vision, I cut into the doll’s neck, which is effortlessly blocked. Then, I landed, and we look back at each other and the situation is back to square one. It’s not just a matter of time before you’ll be able to find a way to get it done.
The doll’s sword snapped off violently as it tried to block my attack. Unable to block my attack, the doll’s head is cut off as it is.
Phew, I breathed a sigh of relief.
Our weapons are exactly the same in performance, so why did it turn out this way? First of all, I didn’t try to block the attack, I focused on evading it. I also guided my opponent’s weapon to take the burden off of it, and then I damaged it by concentrating that burden in one place.
However, if you use a better sword instead of an ordinary one like this one, you can cut down the entire sword without any of that hassle. It’s possible to move even faster than light by using magic. It’s also possible to increase the reaction speed even more. However, such a thing will not improve your skills, so we don’t do that in training. In the first place, such a thing would not be interesting.
Unlike when I first came to this world, I trained to improve my combat skills so that I wouldn’t die. Now, I train as part of my spare time. I won under the worst possible minute conditions, not by pushing as hard as possible. Thinking about what kind of conditions are interesting is another way to pass the time.
”Well then, maybe next time I’ll put on a blindfold and fight.”
Hmm? It’s getting dark. I guess I’m getting carried away with the training. I should probably get ready for dinner. Damn, my stomach started growling when I realized that. Well, I guess I’m skipping lunch. Then, I went back inside the house to prepare dinner and noticed a strange presence in the forest. It’s very weak, and there’s a feeling that it could disappear at any moment. If this was a monster, I would leave it alone, but it doesn’t seem to be a monster.
”Hm, let’s check it out.”
I’m going to use my transference magic to move immediately because the guy is about to die. I’m not going to be able to get my hands on any of them, but I’m going to be able to get my hands on them. I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to this feeling, no matter how many times I use it. I’m not sure if I should try to train myself to move only with transference magic while fighting, etc.
I’m not going to be able to get it right.
I looked down and there was something flimsy and humanoid there. Its ears were pointed and somewhat long, which meant it was an elf. As promised, there are elves, dwarves, and beastmen in this world in addition to ordinary humans. Humans and beastmen occupy a high position because of their numbers, dwarves are targeted as slaves because of their dexterity, and elves are targeted as slaves because of their good looks.
“Hey, are you awake?”
I try to call out to the elf lying on his stomach, but he doesn’t respond. I’ll just turn him over.
I turn it over and look at its face. Hmm, I can’t tell if it’s a man or a woman. He is short, so his age is probably not high, but that makes it even more difficult to tell him apart. While I observe that, the elf doesn’t respond at all. It’s a pain in the ass to help people but it’s no use, it’s a milestone day, like the millennium or something. I can at least help a dying child. When I thought that far, I cast a recovery spell on the elf and took him back home.
