Villainous Husband, the One You’re Obsessed With Is Over There - Chapter 34
ﾟ· : * ✧ * :· ﾟ
An hour passed.
Raniero’s sweet voice immediately flowed into my ear.
“You’re such a fool, and you have no talent.”
Today was a crisis.
Raniero, who was teaching the bow at first, got tired of the class in less than thirty minutes, where all he had to do was watch me fail to shoot. Seeing him like that, I picked up a wooden dagger from somewhere and threw it. Immediately, changing the topic and the dagger class began instead…
…It was a spartan class that started with a fight without any theory or foundation in the slightest.
Yes, it’d be like a preview of how Roberta Jacques could wield a dagger, so I followed along without any complaints.
‘Well, to be honest, I wasn’t in a position to express dissatisfaction anyway…’
Right now, Raniero was holding the wooden blade close to my neck from behind. His voice was filled with unbearable boredom.
“Did you know that you’d have already died for the sixty-seventh time?”
Saying so, he pushed me lightly, and I stumbled back with an awkward smile as he continued.
“Even though I’m not using my right arm, my right leg, my left thumb, ring finger, and my pinky?”
His words persisted in a ridiculous way.
“Besides, I’ve told you all the ways I was going to attack, though how was I still able to cut your neck in the same way for the twelfth time?”
It was as he said.
When Raniero freely used both arms and legs, the match was over in 0.1 seconds. He struck my wrist as fast as lightning, dropping my dagger and thrusting his sword towards my neck. I didn’t even know what had happened, and I died like that ten times.
If I died in 0.1 seconds to Raniero, when I meet Roberta Jacques… I’d die in three seconds, right?
To be honest, I didn’t mind since it was the natural providence of prey that I met Raniero without training that I would die in 0.1 seconds… although he seemed to have been surprised by my weakness. Still, it seemed that he was aware that he was on a non-human level, so Raniero started adding penalties to himself one by one.
At first, he hid his right arm behind his back, and then he put his right leg in the air… Now, even using only two fingers on his left hand.
Remarkably, it still didn’t help me much…
“What should I do?”
He eventually stepped on the ground with both feet after twenty-one minutes.
“You can see the attack with your eyes and avoid it, right?”
I uttered with a little embarrassment.
“…I can’t see it.”
“Are you now confessing that you have a chronic disease that makes you blind?”
I couldn’t see his attacks because he was too fast. So, even if I knew where he would be going, I couldn’t see the attack coming.
…I couldn’t even see an afterimage!
In the end, I was dead again as I muttered, “Huh?” Nevertheless, one strange thing was that Raniero was continuing this nonsensical repetitive labor even until now. Even though he kept grumbling, he didn’t seem to want to quit.
‘It would be better if he said he’d not do it anymore because he was tired of this!’
He would get bored with everything from time to time, so why did he continue until the end at the chance of boredom? I was afraid he would explode like this.
“Why isn’t this working? Why can’t you see and avoid it?”
As he said that, I then got stabbed by the dagger that came into my side. Thankfully, Raniero stopped before it reached me.
…Thank you for not hurting me.
Raniero would then say, ‘Why are you just standing like that?’, ‘I just couldn’t understand’, and ‘What are you…?’ As I continued to dig into the loopholes by repeating the same words about twenty times to answer him, but after realizing my level, I decided it’d be best to stop taking the class right now.
Opening my mouth, I carefully expressed my opinion.
“As expected, a long distance…”
“Where does the confidence that you’ll be able to keep your distance from your prey all the time come from?”
…That was true, too.
Not knowing what to say, I put my hands together somewhat.
Raniero began to explain one by one, starting with the basics, which he couldn’t have imagined that he would eventually have to explain something while teaching someone.
The crossroads and trajectories were most extended and most prominent when the waist was moved when using the bow. In addition, the shoulders, elbows, and wrists become shorter and smaller in the order of shoulders, elbows, and wrists.
He then gently closed his eyes as if feeling skeptical if I even understood his explanation.
I quickly bowed my head.
“Thank you for teaching me… Thank you, it was a great help.”
“What do you mean?”
“Really. This is something I didn’t know at all… It’ll definitely take time and a diligent effort to broaden my horizons, but I’ll do my best.”
Gazing down at me, Raniero untied my hair that had been tied up and took a step towards me.
“I look forward to seeing you come out early tomorrow.”
It was not a languid or bored voice but a tone that was slightly irritated.
I watched as his golden hair, which was far more brilliant than the sunlight falling on his head and shoulders, fluttered as he moved away.
