(EP-3.3) One Punch 

003 - One Punch 

Elijah's expression hardened in an instant.


“…Are you serious?”


“I like her as much as you hate her.”     


That's a lie.


Heck, I didn't even want to be involved with Elnore. Mainly because I don't want to, you know... die!


But right now, this is the only way to get Elijah to seriously attack me and trigger the skill.


Anyway, according to the story timeline, Elnore should be meeting with high-ranking nobles at this moment. There's no way she'd pay attention to me in such an important event...    


   [ Skill: Fatal Charm has been activated. ]

   [ The villain's favor towards you has greatly increased! ]

   [ Rewards are added to the Gift tab! ]




So I don't know why these messages suddenly popped up.


As I looked at her in bewilderment, the hard-faced Elijah was popping her neck.


"Is that so?"    


Her tone was distinctively different from before, paired with a bleak expression.     


"Then I don't have to feel guilty."


Then the next moment, I found her right in front of me.


She was insanely fast. It was as if there was only the beginning and end of the whole movement, no in-between.


'Sweet mother of Jessus...!'     


I internally screamed and threw my body. I barely managed to dodge, as the wooden sword passed by.


The sight of the 'cut-out' clothes fluttering in front of my eyes made me shudder.


How on earth is there a human that could wield a wooden sword like a real blade? If I hadn't known that her attack was coming, I would've been seriously injured.   


"Ara~? You dodged it? I guess you're not a complete weakling.


She didn't seem to have any intention on stopping. Turning her head slightly, she immediately started preparing for another strike.


It'll definitely come directly to me, who hasn't even recovered from the last attack yet.


“Then should I hit it a little harder?”


Then, in an instant, her sword went straight for my chest.  


'This crazy b¡tch...!'    


She probably thinks I got some ability because I avoided her attack. However, that was just a fluke! I only managed to do so because I have the information. Otherwise, I would've had an extra hole in my body!


If I get hit with something like this, then I'll really die!     




Left with no choice, I gritted my teeth and struck with my bare fist.


I have no time to pull out any weapon. Also, this is clearly a 'moment of danger.' The skill will definitely activate.


I don't know how much it'll help, but it should have some impact.


   [ A moment of danger has been detected. ]

   [ Determined the situation as life-threatening. ]

   [ Skill: Desperation raised to EX Class. ]


'...EX grade?'     


Isn't this the highest class?


However, there was no time to express my surprise.     







Elijah met my fist.


Then, her body flew at an invisible speed and landed on one side of the building wall.
