When I informed Colton about my intention to make a purchase, he refused
It wasn’t going to be that easy. Even as a used item, this Shamshir is in good condition.
However, no matter how much I insisted on paying.
Colton stubbornly shook his head, refusing to accept it.
“I want to express my gratitude for saving my daughter/”
“What are you talking about?”
“It’s about the previous semester’s field training. You defeated many goblins and even took down the leader in a one-on-one battle.”
Well, that’s mostly true. Elphimia was the one who dealt the final blow, and to begin with, Lola wasn’t on the front lines. I decided to conceal the leader’s details, thinking they might get scared.
Perhaps Elphimia told you. That information reached Lola’s parents.
As I shifted my gaze, I noticed that Ted and the others were choosing their weapons.
While not everything, some of those weapons might also be a way of showing gratitude.
“All right. I’ll take it gratefully.”
I decided to receive the Shamshir.
It would be hard to say no, and I could work for the money I’d get for supporting Lola.
Thus, I get the Shamseal, but I’m immediately in trouble.
How would I carry it?
Having acquired the Shamshir, I immediately faced a dilemma. How should I transport it? I can carry lightweight two-handed swords over my shoulder, but due to their weight and bulkiness, I rarely brought a weapon like this during explorations. Even if it’s slightly lighter and shorter. The Shamshir is still quite cumbersome.
It’s impossible to hang it on my waist, and if I wear it on my back, it will overlap with the backpack. Markant carries his backpack on his left shoulder and the Holy Strike Axe on his right, but that’s possible due to his large build and high strength.
After trial and error with Colton, I hang it from my left shoulder using a leather strap.
It’s in a position where I can move it upwards without any hindrance when drawing it.
If the Shamshir becomes a hindrance, I can throw away the leather strap with the sheath when pulling it out.
“What’s that? Can you swing it?”
Ted laughed as he saw me hanging the long curved sword.
While I was struggling, it seemed they had finished selecting their weapons.
Well, I can understand why they would laugh. It’s quite long, no doubt about it.
Suppressing such thoughts, I explained the reason for my choice.
“The [Oone-handed Sword] you’re aiming for is considered a group of basic combat skills. Many people spend their whole lives with them.”
It seemed to be news to them, as Gemma and Nails also gathered around.
“When the intermediate level is reached by advancing from the beginner level and fulfilling certain conditions, there are two choices for sword techniques: [Sword Flash] or [Sword Dance]. Among them, [Sword Flash] requires proficiency in [One-handed Sword] as a foundation, but also demands [Curved Sword] and [Two-handed Sword].”
By the way, the advanced levels are [Sword Saint] and [Holy Knight].
People said we could upgrade [Sword Flash] and similar techniques at the intermediate level, but very few people had reached that level, and the details were mostly unknown. The Imperial Highness’s personal Holy Knight, as the title suggests, is a top-class genius who reached the advanced level.
Upon hearing this, Ted and Gemma made mysterious poses, saying, “Sword Flash!” and “Sword Dance!”
Ignoring those foolish kids, Nails hesitantly spoke up.
“Is Alter-sama’s [One-handed Sword] really that remarkable?”
Has he already anticipated the direction of the conversation? I wish they could share his cleverness.
Wait, I feel like I’ve said this before somewhere.
For a moment, I became concerned about Ted and Gemma’s future, but I quickly shook off those thoughts.
“I can’t disclose the details, but it’s quite something. With the monsters around here, it hardly counts as training. When I consulted with Markant and the others, they advised me to prepare for the intermediate level.”
“So that’s why you chose a big sword…”
Not only Nails but also Elliot and Colton seemed convinced.
I clapped my hands lightly.
“Well then, since we’ve settled on our weapons, let’s warm up and get going.”
