Blood 26 Blood of Oni
There are times when the students go to an expedition to the nearby place where monster inhabits to raise level in the academy.
Up until now, I had been prohibited to go to the expedition by Master, but because I was given the permission for the first time on this occasion, I participated in the expedition.
The expedition destination is the forest at the position about 2 days walk from the Demon King Castle.
A lot of low level monsters inhabit in the forest, and it’s an ideal hunting ground for the students.
Of course, because there are casualties occasionally as it’s a combat, it’s impossible to be careless just because the opponent is low level.
I felt puzzled in myself who was not able to conceal the excitement in front of the forest by all means.
There are no good memories in the forest.
After all, it’s because the majority of the time spent during the travel is just like the forest in front of me.
The painful memories in those days are recalled.
At the same time, I felt nostalgic somewhere.
And, above all, the one making me excited is that I can fight.
Just by thinking about it, I get excited to the extent that my front seems to become deep red.
After I was born up until now, I have not fought properly.
I was made to work hard by Master, and did the mock battle in the academy.
The thing with Master can’t be called as a fight, and the mock battle in the academy doesn’t even become a play.
It doesn’t reach the fight that exchanges the life at all.
I will fight.
I will fight with my own flesh and blood.
Just by imagining it, my palpitation rises.
This feeling is surely because I’m a Vampire.
The instinct as the Vampire is wishing for blood and fight.
That’s why, I entered the forest, and at the moment when I actually defeated a monster, the disappointment was intense.
At this rate, it’s only a trampling.
It’s not a fight.
But, I acquired the thing called experience points for the first time, and my level rose.
When I said that my level became two to the handsome guy army that’s together with me, they had a terribly surprised face.
Did I say anything surprising?
The mysterious one is the moment when my level rose, my body shines for an instant, and my SP is recovered.
Unlike the HP and MP, the means to recover SP is limited.
It seems that SP recovers when the level rises.
When I speak the things that I think, I hear that SP doesn’t recover even if the level rises usually.
Am I the only one special? How mysterious.
「Sophia, let’s withdraw around here. At this rate, the monsters in this forest can be annihilated」
The teacher, Jigris-sensei said so to stop me.
My level rose to three too, and because it’s not interesting even if I continue the trample any further, I accepted the proposal.
「I never do anything this time though」
「Be relief. I’m also the same」
「Even though I came to raise the level, my level is not raised」
「It can’t be helped because Sophia did a one person fortune-telling」
Although the boys were depressed of something, I don’t mind them.
Although they are good when seeing as friends, they lack of ability to be an opponent.
This desire of me can’t be filled.
Rather than that, I have recognized that my strength is considerably abnormal in the last few years.
Is there a strong person who can fight directly with me now?
If I go to the Elro Great Labyrinth that Master said, will I be satisfied?
My thoughts are going to the dangerous direction steadily.
I might lose my sense because I’m smelling the smell of the monster’s blood.
I never thought that I was such a battle junkie. I knew it for the first time in my life.
And, at that time when we tried to withdrew, the incident happened.
The scream heard at a little distant place.
There should only be the academy’s students in this forest now.
If that’s the case, that means the scream is someone of the academy students.
The boys move quickly.
In order to head to the place where the scream comes from.
Although I think that it’s their charm that they will move in order to rescue without hesitation at such a time, at the same time, I felt that the situation is changing into the bad direction.
Although it’s bad, I can’t let them go.
I made them to faint with the surprise attack from the back.
But, if they go, they will surely die.
The master of the scream is already dead too.
It has been confirmed with Presence Sensing.
(TL note: The author used 察知 instead of the usual 感知, so maybe, it’s a new skill)
And, the strength of the opponent who was felt with the Presence Sensing was the one that I felt from Master and Ariel-san.
I conceal the boys at a safe place and lay them down, and I approach to the master of the presence.
Even I think that something is wrong with me.
The opponent is strong to the extent that I understand it with Presence Sensing.
And yet, I’m smiling.
Ah, I can fight.
The crisis is made in front of me, and only such feelings well up.
And, I confront it.
Abundant blood spread in the surroundings.
The ruins of corpse that have been destroyed to the extent that how many people was here can be understood.
Possibly, there might be an acquaintance too, and yet, my heart dances.

It was an Oni there.
Although the appearance is hardly different from the Demon, two horns grow on the forehead, and above all, the thick killing intent proves that it’s a monster.
Somehow, I feel that I have seen that face before, but it might be my imagination.
To the enemy who I confront for the first time.
This guy is worthy to be my enemy.
Maybe equal or slightly disadvantageous.
And yet, I can’t conceal the uplifted feelings.
I want to defeat this guy and drink up the blood.
I, in accordance with the desire, challenged the Oni to a fight.
Interesting that his name is now Wrath ‘. ‘
Turns out she’s a battle junkie huh.
I guess all those time spent being dominated by Ariel and Kumo meant she never had the chance to go all out.
Well seems he got his Taboo to lvl 10. Can’t wait to read how he broke free of being controlled and slaughtered the guys.
I’m guessing the Heresy resistance got high enough (since he constantly ‘resists’ control) that he could break free.
And from then on he just rages on, killing every ‘human’ looking things he find…including the demons.
Or maybe a certain disappointing pair manipulated his path towards the demons…
And to make them both learn something, the pair also monitor his stats and make sure that Sophia have similar stat/skill (hence the order of raise level of certain skill/stat value)
True that. It’s too convenient to be a coincidence
I seemed to have noticed that “Wrath” somewhere lost the appraisal skill (since it doesn’t appear, haven’t checked on raws tho), and since we don’t know which ruler class skill Sophia got, it seems that “Wrath” doesn’t know of the appraisal obstruction function…
Unless she is the succesor of Wisdom-sama?
When Kumoko appraised Sophia, she saw Sophia’s Japanese name.
Is it not seen because Sophia’s Appraisal is at level 9? Is that even possible, after 8 years?
Or is it that the author f**ked up?
The Wrath (Oni) never had the apprisal skill (at least we didn’t see him learn it yet) so no wonder he hasn’t got it.
Wrath uses an appraisal stone given to him by the summoner to check his swords, which he mentioned in a previous chapter. It seems he never bothered to learn it naturally.
More interestingly, I see he spent all of his points.
Not only does he have taboo max level, he should also be stronger than a dragon since he has dragon power
Dragon = 5000~10,000 stats
Kyouya = 15k~20k
Yeah. He’s stronger.
