“This guy will be your training partner from now on.”

When I heard mother, I had the urge to kill myself and reincarnated one more time.

This was just like receiving a novice level quest from the village chief, only to arrive at the destination to find out the target to be conquered was actually the Demon King!

Oi, are you seriously asking me to face that thing without time to even practice first?!

“What is it, my dear daughter? Don’t be scared~ It’s just a common deep-sea giant, other than its size, there’s nothing special about it,” mother spoke as though it was a palm-sized beetle. Other than its horn, the beetle was basically a harmless creature.

But its enormous body size alone was enough to wreak havoc ya know?! You should apologize to Ultraman, Godzilla, and King Kong who made a living with their body size!!1

I looked at the ten meters tall2 deep-sea giant in front of me with dry tears. Even as ⓑⓔⓔⓟ— as I was in my past life, I still didn’t possess items such as the Spark Lens.3 Not to mention, my experience in beating up monsters was basically non-existent.

The deep-sea giant that was thrown upside down just now slowly regained its balance. It struggled to get up and scanned its surroundings.

“Roar!” The deep-sea giant snarled and ran in my direction… Oh no, its target was obviously the woman standing behind me.

But it didn’t matter whoever its target was, during its frenzy, it would simply tear anything blocking its path into pieces.

What to do… what to do? Should I just let myself be eaten? I doubt my body could even fill in the gap between its teeth.

“But I haven’t finished my class, I still have no idea how to make use of my powers!” Just before the deep-sea giant made it ashore, I realized this fatal issue… I had only completed half of the class.

Mother frowned and turned towards Fenice.

Fenice forced out a peal of laughter, “A… haha… seems like our class is still in session…”

Mother stared at her and yelled, “Then continue your lessons, what are you standing there for? Waiting for me to pay your wages?”

“I’m on it, I’m on it…” Fenice moved to front of the blackboard like a wisp of smoke. She pointed at the human-shaped diagram and started, “Now we will talk about…”

“Roar—!” The lesson was disrupted by a resounding roar from the deep-sea giant. It had already climbed ashore and was now running in our direction with Mach 0.1 speed.

Fenice halted and cautiously glanced at mother…

The corner of mother’s eyes was twitching continuously, blue veins could already be seen popping on her forehead, “What are you roaring at, you mother ⓑⓔⓔⓟ ⓑⓔⓔⓟ ⓑⓔⓔⓟ ⓑⓔⓔⓟ— ⓑⓔⓔⓟⓘⓣⓨ ⓑⓔⓔⓟ—”

Mother raised her hand and flung the chains, it swirled up and whipped the giant’s stomach.

Only now did I notice that the chain in my mother’s hand was connected to the giant’s stomach. It looked as though the chain was directly piercing through its stomach. As the giant was getting closer, the chain pierced into its stomach even deeper and was now more clearly visible.

“Pow!”

The deep-sea giant received a powerful impact on its stomach. It was clearly a whip attack, but instead, it sounded like it had been punched.

The furious deep-sea giant was shot back to its original spot by mother’s whip.

“Roar!!”

Once again, the giant struggled to get up and let out a threatening roar at mother after rubbing the pit of its stomach. However, its eyes showed a clear indication of fear as he looked at mother.

“Do you… really want to die?” Mother revealed a warm smile, creating an image of a big sister next door, but the words that came out of her mouth were a frightening declaration of approaching danger.

“Roar! …… Roar. …… Roar~” The giant’s trademark angry roar gradually turned as mellow as the meowing of a kitten begging for food.

And right before my amazed eyes, the deep-sea giant —who seemed ready to tear all living creatures to shreds a moment ago— now began to cower.

“Alright, you may continue~” Mother turned her head and said to Fenice with a smile, “I’ll give you five minutes.”

Fenice had cold sweat running down her forehead as she nodded. Her trembling claws pointed at the human diagram. Then she took a deep breath and said, “Royal Princess although you cannot transform into a dragon your body still has the same raw power it can be considered just like a bucket of water being compressed into a water drop this will cause a qualitative change which will then wholly accumulate in your small body to make use of your powers without any need to transform Now you only need to gradually adapt to this power in your body before you can ultimately use it moreover you have the great ancestor’s blood essence purifying your blood so if you spend some time perceiving your blood flow you will quickly be able to understand this raw power within you… there, sigh… I’m done.”4

Mother gave her five minutes, but Fenice didn’t even take fifty seconds to finish. Her lung capacity was amazing indeed. She didn’t even pause in between sentences…

But that mother ⓕⓤⓒⓚⓔⓡ, at least use proper punctuation marks! How is the reader supposed to understand the sentence like that… No, more like, how am I supposed to understand? I didn’t understand a single word you just blabbered, you ⓑⓐⓢⓣⓐⓡⓓ!!5

On the other hand, mother nodded in approval, “That’s good.”

So, how could you understand any of that? Even if your esteemed self could hear it clearly, you have to think about me! My educational level is only up to elementary school grade three, don’t expect me to have understanding abilities on par with secondary school grade three!!

“Alright, since you already understand how you can control and use the power in your body, let’s begin the actual combat.”

No no no, I don’t know anything yet, this is no different from being absent-minded in class and attempting a test in the next session, and it was not even a voluntary action…

“Don’t worry, mommy knows you can definitely do it,” mother’s eyes were brimming with encouragement and expectations.

No matter how much your esteemed self encourages me, it’s still useless. There’s no way an irregular student who didn’t even listen in class can pass the test. And we’re jumping into the real thing at once? There’s not even time to practice?

However, I was unable to say anything after seeing mother’s hopeful gaze…

“Then let’s begin! My dear daughter, the Dragon Princess, one who is bestowed the name of Chaos, this shall be your first battle!” Mother retrieved a Spectrum Stone from her bosom, “I shall record this momentous moment!”6

“Yay!’ Fenice applaud from the side.

But believe me, all you will record is the daughter of the Dragon Queen —the dragon princess who was granted the name of Chaos— being trampled on the ground by the insignificant deep-sea giant…

It won’t be a pretty sight…
