Chapter 8 : I Tried To Suppress My Magical Power
「Can you not lump me together with small fries like you guys?」
The one who said those words as she glared at me who got suspended in midair was a tall woman with striking red colored hair.
Estina, the sole platinum rank adventurer of this guild was an extremely dangerous woman who dared to explore the demon’s den by herself.
Her whip was made of a special material which could extend up to a hundred metres.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that a hundred metres radius around her was a death field for her opponent.
She had both fine control which allowed her to hit anyone within her whip’s range with the tip of her whip and destructive power that could pulverize a giant rock in a second.
And to top it off, she could use that destructives power to kill ANY NUMBER of enemies within her whip’s range.
In addition, the fact that she suspended me upside-down in midair like this was the greatest proof of the fact that she could use her whip as if it was one of her own limbs.
「Wait a minute, what are you do—」
The one who snapped first seeing Estina’s deed was Hanna.
But, Estina’s whip was moving even faster, it released my foot and then twined itself around Hanna’s foot.
The whip pulled Hanna’s foot, and made her fall flat on the floor.
As if to pour salt on her wound, she also hanged Hanna upside down in an extremely embarrassing position that exposed her crotch for everyone to see.
「Kukuku, is something the matter? Why did you suddenly expose your crotch in the public like some sort of pervert? Or else, do you want someone to poke inside? Good grief, the youth nowadays.」
Hanna’s face flushed red when she heard Estina’s words.
Because there’s no greater humiliation than this for a young and prideful woman like her.
「Even if you’re a platinum rank adventurer, there is a limit of how much you can show such wonderf―― Cough, I mean putting our comrade in such an embarrassing situation.」
Dale and Guy were clearly agitated by Estina’s action, straining the atmosphere in the room.
As for me, I was writhing in pain when Estina suddenly released the restrain on my leg and made me fall on my back.
「Hah, so you want to fight me?」
Estina was smiling as if provoking them.
Properly speaking, we might not even be able to beat her even with our party working together.
Those guys of platinum rank, every single one of them was a monster, one man army if you compare them to gold ranks like us.
Indeed, it was my fault for grouping her together with a gold rank like us.
Though I’ve noticed from the very beginning that she was amongst the participants of the conference, my mental state a while ago didn’t allow me to consider that option.
「Stop this fruitless farce at once!」
That angry shout resounding in the conference room.
The guild master Barud finally cut in to stop the situation from escalating even further.
「Now is not the right time for a small scuffle like this. That goes for you too Estina, just forgive them already.」
Barus was the only one who could stop Estina in this situation.
Naturally, we’ve no choice but to stop too.
「Give it up, Hanna.」
「Think for whose sake I did this…!」
「Give it up, the current you can’t win against her, you should understand that from the way she wiped the floor with you.」
Despite the way Hanna glared at her with teary eyes, Estina who might’ve satisfied her sadism returned to her original seat while grinning ear to ear.
Seeing that, I heaved a sigh of relief.
By the way, the most dangerous things about Estina aren’t just limited to her strength.
The clothes she wore had a large degree of exposure to the point that it was no different from underwear, and her figure is really sexy too.[TL : Bikini Armor?]
「Truly a sight for sore eyes…」
… Guy, I thought you’re into lolis.
Back to Estina, I heard the rumor that her clothes were Legend rank armor but that degree of exposure made me doubt that rumor.
Anyhow, since she could walk around the city while wearing such embarrassing clothes in daylight, there might be some screw loose in her head too.
In spite of her youthful appearance that made her look like no more than a woman in her twenties, I knew that her age was not that much different from mine, in short a middle aged wo—
Whoops, I mustn’t continue, she can be dangerously sharp in seeing through someone mocking her ag――
「… Shitty OLD HAG」
「HOW DARE YOU SHITTY BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!?」
When Hanna muttered those forbidden words, Estina’s expression transformed into that of an angry god.

=== A Certain Undead With Abyssal Level Communication Skill ===
After those four adventurers have escaped.
I who had no idea what forced them to escape stood pondering over this matter by myself.
Is it because of my tattered clothes?
I had long since lost the gear that I bought with a large amount of money in the past.
Leaving only extremely durable clothes made with tanned demon skin which barely covered my most important part, one wrong move might have turned me into a flasher.
「But my tattered clothes don’t seem to be the only reason…」
No matter how I look at it, their attacks were clearly aimed to reap my life.
Their abilities might be on par with me when I was alive, around B rank.
I’ll die for sure If the me at that time fought them.
「Come to think of it, what caused everyone to flee from me as soon as they saw me? It’s as if they saw a more terrifying mon—!?」
I snapped back from my thoughts the moment I realized that.
I forgot that I’m currently an undead.
In short, a monster too.
And the power source of monsters was none other than their magical power, more powerful monsters have more powerful magical power.
When it comes to An extremely powerful monster, even just being exposed to their leaking magical power was enough to kill a weak human.
Thus I asked myself, could it be that I am continuously leaking vast amounts of magical power from my body at all times?
When I’m pondering over that matter I—
「WOOOAAAAH!? IT’S BASICALLY FLOODING OUT OF MY BODY!」
Though Only now I realized that there’s an extremely sinister magical power to the point that it warped the air around me, I also know that it was none other than my own magical power.
So this is the reason why human and monster alike were running away as soon as they saw me.
「Could it be that my magical power was extremely saturated to the point that it can be seen?」
At least, the me when I was alive didn’t have this much power.
The me of that time was a swordsman, I’m not that skillful in sensing magical power.
Nevertheless, only now did I realize that bizarre magical power’s leakage despite it being extremely saturated to the point of distorting the air itself.
Maybe it has something to do with the me up before I regained my ego being too used to exposing my magical power.
Usually, continues discharge of magical power from one’s body would led to exhaustion, pain that assailed your entire body, and then triggering strange occurrence inside one’s body.
But, the current me didn’t feel exhausted at all.
「Is it because the discharged amount of magical power was… too small compared to my mana pool? But, I guess I’ve to suppress it in my body to prevent any leaking from now on.」
Now I tried to suppress my own magical power to prevent it from leaking from my body.
Thus, I managed to stop my magical power from leaking out into my surroundings.
I did it with much ease despite trying it for the first time.
I’m an undead and yet extremely skilled in surpressing my power.
After that, I left the ruined metropolis and continued my journey in the wasteland again.
I’m sure that I’ll find a city if I’m following the direction of which those adventurers were running to.
Though my previous attempt ended up in an utter failure, I’m sure that it’ll be okay now that I managed to suppress my magical power from leaking out of my body.
And just right when I’m pondering over those matter,
A monster came to attack me.
It was a three metres long tiger called Killer Tiger.
「OO! THIS GUY ISN’T RUNNING AWAY! SO IT REALLY IS BECAUSE MY MAGICAL POWER LEAKAGE HUH!」
The monster who leaped at me instead of trying to escape upon seeing me is now trying to bite my head off.
Only to find out that its fangs had broken into pieces.
In addition, its huge frame ended up crashing against me as if it was smashed against an extremely sturdy wall.
And yet, by now I’ve been used to seeing this kind of scene.
Yeah It’s not really that amazing, I lightly swatted the still dumbfounded Killer Tiger who looked at me with rounded eyes to the side as if I’m swatting annoying flies.
And yet, the Killer Tiger ended up blown away at a terrifying speed.
That swat just now might’ve killed it.
Those series of events kept happening along the way, the monster attacked me–> Surprised seeing their attack doesn’t work on me–> me killing them with a light swat–> Repeat, till I finally saw THAT from afar.
Though it was a lot smaller compared to Balkaba which has been turned into a ruined metropolis, I know that city is still functioning normally seeing the tall rampart that is surrounding it.
「… D-Dont’ worry… I-It should be okay… I-I’ve suppressed my magical power.」
Thus I walked into the city while trying to reassure myself that it’ll be alright.
Even without my magical power’s leakage, my extremely low communication power made me into a loner who couldn’t speak properly to others for so many years.
Even though I finally found a city, my feet felt as heavy as lead for some reason.
And as I walked toward the city at turtle pace.
I discovered something else was also heading for the city.
「… What’s that?」
At first, I thought it was a small mountain.
But, when I see the way it’s moving.
