Chapter 14: Elenore’s Slime Training

Me and Elenore have been on the road for some time now. This gave me the chance to try and figure out her combat ability. Elenore is not that good of a rearguard. She most likely will fit in as vanguard. But since I’m probably the strongest DPS around maybe I can make her a support vanguard or something. I’ll think about it as I see her progress.

Because of the gear and sex we were having she did level, but her combat skills… she can’t swing that sword properly. Not to mention throwing a feint or other stuff. While my mind drifted towards those thoughts, we reached a patch of grassland. And there I saw it. Slimes.

“Elenore, this is perfect. Those are perfect for you to train on!”

“Eeh!? No way! Slimes are so… well… gooey!”

“Look, Elenore, now that you’re mine, you gotta learn how to fight. Come on. You won’t get hurt. If by chance something does happen, I’ll step in.”

“O… okay…”

She was reluctant. We got off the carriage and Elenore took a stance at one of the slimes. The slime looked exactly like a spongy volleyball. It curved it’s liquid like body in an agresive manner. It was probably a warning to stay away. The moment the slime jumped at her, she swung her sword accordingly. There was no resistance and the slime was cut in half, but the 2 parts still moved.

“Don’t tell me it multiplied from being cut in half?”

Elenore made a distressed face. But that’s exactly what happened. The slime divided itself. A slime was supposed to be one of the weakest monsters in the game. Although they don’t technically harm humans, they could melt clothes given the chance. Another swing from Elenore and the same thing happened again. And again. Until she found herself surrounded by slimes.

“Eeh!? I can’t take this!”

“Would you calm down, for a second? Look, stop swinging that sword randomly, will you? There are 2 ways to deal with slimes.”

Please let it be the same as in the game.

“First is with magic. You blast them away. Second…”

I got close to Elenore and grabbed her wrist. I wanted to demonstrate the right procedure. If you cut a slime just in 2 it will multiply. So you had to actually cut it in 4. A horizontal slash followed quickly by a vertical one. I performed the move using Elenore’s hand. And the slime didn’t regenerate. All that was left is a puddle.

“Got it? You need to quickly cut in 4.”

“I… I’ll try…”

She was clumsy at first but in the end she got the move right. This is basic swordsmanship. It took a while, but finally the slimes were gone. I can’t help but think that this world feels like a game. But more slimes were attracted.

“A pincer attack all of a sudden?”

She grumbled and focused on defeating the ones in front of her. After Elenore sliced 3 slimes off, she felt an impact on her back. A slime attacked her with a tackle. I bet the impact would be similar to that like in a dodgeball class. But given the armor I gave her, her HP shouldn’t drop. That the doesn’t mean she won’t feel pain though.

“Kuh… it unexpectedly hurts. I guess I can’t play around.”

Bracing herself once more, she took a stance with her sword. Since two slimes attacked her simultaneously, she dodged them and cut one down immediately. But two more were coming from behind.

“No more pain!”

Guess she’s not fond of pain. By swinging her sword around, she managed to cut down two at once. One slime remained. Which she also managed to finish up.

“Seriously, Izuna, why didn’t you help me?”

“I told you. You need to learn to fight for yourself. At least now, you’re not swinging that sword randomly anymore. Come over here. Let me teach you a few more stances. Your body is in great shape because of the farm work, so you should be able to handle some swordsmanship skills.”

In Astral Storm Online until you got your first class advancement also known as job change you could basically learn any skills, spells and use any weapon you wanted. I am familiar with a few sword skills so I plan teaching them to Elenore. I also need to teach her how to kill efficiently. If the enemy is too fast you cut off it’s legs. If he has excellent hearing, make really loud noise to confuse him. So on and so on.

For the next two days we stayed near this field and from morning till evening we kept training. I also got to see flowers I never saw before and encountered little critters. It was also quite enjoyable to think of ways to defeat low monsters to help Elenore.

I didn’t consider myself to be a battle maniac, but looking at things through the eyes of a beginner… thinking how to kill a strong opponent, the real thrill of an RPG kicked in. And so, under my guidance Elenore improved once again. Her level rose to 18. But now, it’s not just a number. She can actually back up that number with skill. I think it was time for us to move on and get to the royal palace.

“Hey, hey, Izuna, look! A jewel slime in such a place!?”

She spotted a sparkling slime shining like a jewel behind some bushes. I think I remember this species too. It was introduced as a source of income for new players to help them get their starter gear.

“We can sell its ‘jewel slime core’ for quite a sum. I’m catching it!”

She drew her sword with the eyes of a hunter. Money was important after all. After she killed it without letting it escape, she nodded satisfied.

“That’s a good sign. Mh? Oh, wow! Look. That’s the rare meat slime. It’s said that it’s core if cooked is quite delicious. It’s mine!”

The next slime that appeared was a red-ish slime. Its attack power wasn’t all too strong, but it was quite fast. Still, not so fast as to challenge Elenore, because right now, she could move even faster than it.

“Haah!”

She sliced it into 4. A core was indeed revealed and it looked like a giant meatball. And honestly… it doesn’t look appetizing at all. Nevertheless Elenore was determined to cook it.

“What other slime can we hunt?”

Hold it right there! 2 days ago you didn’t want to come close to a slime. I hope I didn’t create a monster. I don’t need a slime girl, do I? I placed my hand on her shoulder and dragged her.

“What are you doing?”

“Making you take a bath. You’re covered in slime fluids and I can’t stand to look at you like this. There’s a small lake over here so we’re cleaning you up.”

“Umm… before we do that… can we please… you know… do it again? You can cover me with your slime too!”

Yup. I think I ended up creating a monster after all. Oh well… I might complain, but my d̲i̲c̲k̲ sure isn’t. After out little soap play we once again got on the carriage and were aiming for the royal capital.
