The Classless Transferee's Skill Copy - Chapter 74
Chapter 74: Intrusion
As the finals of the Rendvell Games began, tension filled the air.
However, breaking through this tension, Masked Jetter made his move.
Aiming at me, he sent a Jetter Punch my way.
I petrified my left arm and blocked the attack, stepping back to keep my distance from him.
But as I distanced myself, I could see Snow approaching me.
Thrusting his rapier out, he tried to stab me, but I blocked it with Enzetta.
The fact that blocking his attack caused him to stagger didn’t escape my notice, and I kicked him away.
Yuugure fired a barrage of bullets at Snow, who had been knocked back.
Snow used his rapier to parry the bullets.
After having done that, he leaped and thrust his rapier at Yuugure.
However, Yuugure created a laser blade from the barrel of the gun in his right hand, and it collided with the rapier.
As they clashed, the two stared at each other up close.
Meanwhile, I fired a barrage of bullets at Masked Jetter using Bulleter, who was attacking me.
Masked Jetter leaped up, avoiding them.
Seeing that Masked Jetter was coming at me with a flying kick, I used Stone Wall to protect against it.
Then, I broke through the wall myself and slashed at him with Enzetta.
I turned my gaze from the knocked-back Masket Jetter to Yuugure.
Right now, he had just kicked Snow away.
He must have noticed me as he looked at me, sneered, kicked off the ground, and drew closer to me.
He immediately created laser swords from the barrels of both his guns.
I blocked his first strike with Enzetta.
Just like that, our weapons clashed multiple times.
“This is it! This is the fight I’ve always wanted to have with you!”
“No way I’m gonna lose this!”
As we spoke, we both didn’t let up our attacks.
If we let up even a little, we’d end up taking a blow…
However, our last clash sent us both flying back.
“There’s more where that came from!”
“Don’t forget about me!”
As Yuugure approached me, Masked Jetter came from the side with a chop.
“Out of my way!”
This time, Masked Jetter was fighting Yuugure.
I meant to join in the fight, but a rapier was pointed right at me, and I stopped moving.
“Where do you think you’re going?”
I parried Snow’s rapier, and our weapons clashed.
I repelled his sharp thrusts.
His attacks were quick and precise…
But that’s what made him easy to read!
“I’m easy to read… were you thinking that?”
Suddenly, to my surprise, Snow’s speed increased, and his rapier nicked me on the cheek.
I was thus sent flying backward.
“The rapier is all about speed. If you’re going to try predicting my moves, I’ll just move faster than you can predict!”
“I see! If that’s the case, I’ll catch up too! Swiftness!”
I used Swiftness to raise my speed and collided with Snow in a world of high speed.
Not many people in the audience were able to follow our movements.
Yuugure seemed to have noticed us, and while evading Masked Jetter’s attacks, he watched us fight.
Then, as though he had thought of something, he sneered, and then kicked Masked Jetter right towards us.
Noticing Masked Jetter being knocked towards us, Snow and I moved away once again.
However, we were on guard for Yuugure’s next move.
Yuugure accumulated energy in the barrels of his twin guns.
We braced ourselves for a terrible attack.
“Take this, you worthless lot!”
I moved, trying to dodge, but I didn’t make it in time, and I was hit by two powerful beams of energy.
It hit us directly, and it caused a huge explosion…
The stadium was obscured by smoke filling the area, causing the spectators to murmur worriedly.
Much like the other spectators, Meryl and the rest were worried about me.
But a shadow leaped out of the smoke and fired a slash at Yuugure.
Even Yuugure was unable to react against the sudden slash and got hit.
Holding the area he had been slashed at, he glared at the person who had fired the slash.
Yes—it was me, Asou Aruto…
“You… You took my Buster Beam without any injury…?!”
When the smoke cleared, Yuugure’s eyes opened even wider, surprised at the fact that I wasn’t injured.
“Just in time…!”
“We’re still uninjured…!”
Snow and Masked Jetter, who were also supposed to have been hit by the Buster Beam, were also uninjured.
Their equipment was dirty, but they didn’t appear to have any wounds.
“Wh… Bastards, what’d you do?!”
Yuugure was unusually angry.
His expression wasn’t as relaxed as he usually was.
“It’s because of the power of a skill I got from a certain monster… Drain!”
After defeating a plant-type monster and using Skill Copy, I got the ability Drain, which allowed one to weaken and absorb an opponent’s stamina and physical strength.
“But… the Buster Beam’s power…! Could it be…?!”
Yuugure looked at me, then at Snow behind me.
Indeed, Snow’s barrier had lowered the strength of his Buster Beam.
“I see… This’ll be fun!”
“Heh! I’m not going to get hit by the same attack twice!”
I gripped Enzetta with both hands, and stared Yuugure down.
The fight was about to continue…
Or so that’s what I thought.
“Wh-what are you guys…?! Ugh?!”
“Masked Jetter! Ugh…?!”
Suddenly, a scream came from Snow and Masked Jetter, and so we looked in their direction.
There on the ground was Masked Jetter, who had fallen, and two men who had captured Snow.
“Snow! Masked Jetter!”
“…? Those people are…!”
Yuugure noticed something behind me, but I didn’t notice and instead looked at the two people.
“Who the hell are you guys?!”
“A pleasure to meet you… Asou Aruto.”
One of the men grinned fearlessly, looking at me.
If I hadn’t stopped in place at that moment, that thing might not have happened.
There was no way for me to know that at the time, but…
It was already too late… Too late for regrets!
