Strange Grief Wants to Retire ~The Weakest Hunter Dreams of a Hero~ - SS1
Tino Shade’s Creed
“Master is Level 8. If Master wielded his power inside the 【White Wolves’ Den】, nothing would ever be able to grow again.”
Infinite Variety has pushed his work on you. I will teach this Gilbert, who wasn’t even hiding the fact that his expression said that.
“I am sure you have heard of it, when you reach Level 8, you become too strong to wield your power blindly. Besides, Master’s current certification Level might be 8, but his actual power exceeds Level 10. With a swing of his arm, he can split the earth and the sea, and by just thinking about it, he can call forth a storm and rain lightning on you.”
Greg looked at her with a dismay expression on his face. Full of compassion, Tino looked at that poor Hunter who couldn’t see the truth.
Greg Zangif has a long career as a Hunter. And because of his long experience, he can’t believe at Master’s enormous power.
However, that wasn’t ununderstandable. Even Tino wouldn’t have believed in it if she had been told that without knowing anything about it.
Gilbert and Ruda also looked at her in disbelief. Tino puffed out her chest and made a serious expression.
Master is amazing. If you asked me how amazing he is, he is so amazing that there is no one who she can compare him to.
For example, Ark Rodin, one of the Top-Class Treasure Hunters in 《Footprint of the Beginning》 and rumored to be the strongest among the younger generation of Hunters in the Imperial Capital, is strong. He is strong enough to beat Onee-sama if they were fighting in a one-on-one battle, and even from the perspective of Tino, who is in Master’s faction, his power is in the realm of heroes.
But however, even Ark can’t cast lightning without using Magic or summon forth storms, and his power isn’t devastative enough like Master’s, who has to be careful of the environment around him all the time.
His ability to hide his power is also imperfect. Master can disguise his power to be less than the average citizen, but that good-looking bastard would keep on shining no matter how much he suppressed his power.
What was between them is the absolute gap of talent.
Unlike Master, Ark Rodin’s fighting abilities are only just a little bit high.
He doesn’t have the foresight to see into the future or use his evil ―― Effective power to give Tino and the other Clan Members challenges that can, at the end, only be overcome by putting our life on the line to bully ―― To make us grow.
It is said that the most important skills for those who stand at the top is the ability to nurture people who are under you.
That means that Cry Andrich’s abilities weren’t only limited to his own power as an individual. And Tino, being able to hone her skills under him, is surely a blessing. It must be a blessing.
That’s why, Tino will teach a lesson to those poor newbies about Master. So that their heart doesn’t break after finishing their work.
“All Monsters instinctively fear Master’s power and gather into groups to attack him. Even though Master should be able to face them head on and easily annihilate them, he will make the other Clan Members and me face off against them in order to make us grow.”
“Master is also targeted by criminals. They will sometimes put poison here and there. Master would then swiftly pass it over to me without saying anything. Thanks to that, I had wandered between the border of life and death many times, but most poisons had now stopped working on me. Everything is all thanks to Master.”
“Master is not only threatening me, but the world as well. Master can create a Treasure Shrine just by going to see blossoming cherry tree1, and even if he doesn’t go, it will be the Treasure Shrine that will attack instead. If he goes to a Treasure Shrine, the Treasure Shrine will awoken to its self-preservation instinct and create a Boss.”
“If you are as powerful as Master, it doesn’t matter whether you are a friend or a foe. No matter what kind of attack he is subjected to, he will come out unharmed, and the opponents will die just by being stared at. That’s why Master doesn’t differentiate much between enemies and allies. By the way, he also doesn’t differentiate between work and game. Because for Master, work is like a child’s game. It’s something that can’t be helped.”
“Master will catch you off guard. That’s why you must never let your guard down. But, it is only at a time like that, there is nothing happening. In other words, what you need is a mindset of ever being on a battlefield. No matter how many times it hits you, you will never get used to it.”
“Master doesn’t do that because he enjoys bullying us. He is enjoying bullying us while swallowing back his tears.”
“…… But, it is fine. Master is amazing. Master is absolute. Master doesn’t make errors in his judgement. The only thing Master doesn’t understand is…… If I have to say anything, it is, the human heart.”
Master is a god. Master is a god. God, please save me.
The still lucky Master newbies Hunters looked at Tino, who was giving herself an auto-suggestion to persuade herself to resolute herself, with an worried expression.
Merry Christmas! This is my present for you guys, a Tino Short Story!
Tino has been fully converted to Cry Andrich sect XD
Poor Tino and poor Cry who can’t do nothing about it!
