Chapter 422: I can ’t take it anymore~!
”Scathach didn ’t teach you the complete version of her martial art. She did so because you weren ’t ready. ” Victor started talking as he arrived at the training area.
”By you, you mean… ”
”Yes, you and your sisters. ” Victor nodded.
Walking to a tree in the distance, Victor laid Nero down comfortably, and left the girl asleep.
He disappeared, and appeared again where he was previously, but he was holding a small mattress.
He lifted Nero and set her on the mattress.
”She really is a heavy sleeper… ” He chuckled lightly as he stroked Nero ’s head.
”…. ” Pepper couldn ’t help but look at this scene with some heat in her eyes.
The sight of Victor being kind was always something she enjoyed.
Victor covered Nero with the blanket he brought, and soon he got up and walked to an area some distance away.
When they were relatively distant from Nero, he began to explain:
”Scathach spread her martial arts among you, her daughters. ”
”You, Pepper, got the strength, Siena got the power, Lacus got the speed, and Ruby got the defense. ”
”…Mm, correct. ” Pepper nodded.
”It ’s just that there ’s something you guys never noticed, not even the ever-intelligent Ruby…- ” Victor stopped talking and crossed his arms and made an expression as if he were pondering something.
”Hmm, I think the correct way to say it is that none of you ever paid attention? ”
”What do you mean? ”
”By sharing the martial arts she created with you, it was a way of enhancing your individual characteristics, but it was also a form of training. ”
”She hoped that the sisters would come together, and try to pass on the techniques they ’d learned to each other, so that the sisters would eventually learn about the ’control ’ which is the fifth martial art and which brings together all of Scathach techniques in one person.. ”
”….. ” Pepper opened her eyes wide when she heard what Victor said.
”But instead of that, you sisters did it in reverse. You specialized in the incomplete techniques that Scathach taught, and never tried to learn from each other. Instead you learned to fight together. ” Victor thought of the fight he ’d had with the Scarlett sisters in the human world.
Even back then it was difficult to counter the Scarlett sisters ’ combo as he often found himself hurt and cornered.
But he couldn ’t deny that fighting the Scarlett sisters, when they were together, was deadly. Few beings could resist their coordination and the way each of their specializations complimented each other, but in the long run, it wasn ’t efficient.
They needed individual strength.
’I should train Ruby later too… If she has time. ’ Victor was not blind, he understood that his wives were busy, especially Ruby.
Despite not dealing with the issues of being a Clan ’s heir, she still had many projects spread across the human world, and Nightingale.
Projects that required her attention.
”I never thought my mother would think that… But if I think carefully about the past, you ’re right… ”
”Well, no need to feel bad. Knowing Scathach, she planned to fix you sisters when you hit the bottleneck. ”
”… ” Pepper broke out in a cold sweat when she heard the word ’fix ’ and not ’train ’.
She knew that Victor didn ’t choose those words without reason, her mother would actually ’fix ’ them in the right direction.
”In a way, you ’re lucky, because you ’re training with me, not your mom. ”
”… That ’s true. ” Pepper couldn ’t help but agree, after all, Victor wasn ’t as spartan as her mother….
The training they do was tough, but not on the level of their mother who really pushed them to the brink of death.
As Scathach says:
”What doesn ’t kill you makes you stronger. ”
’Her philosophy is quite twisted, but it ’s effective… As much as I want to deny it, I can ’t. ’ Pepper thought.
”Today, I will teach you ’Power ’, ’Defense ’, and ’Speed ’. ”
”Once you scratch the basics of these techniques, ’Control ’ will come naturally. ”
”First let ’s start with speed which is something you desperately need. ”
”…Don ’t overdo it please, it ’s not like I desperately need-. ”
”I ’m not exaggerating. ”
”!!! ” Pepper jerked her head to the side and saw Victor standing next to her, his face suddenly millimeters away from hers, with a smile on his face.
She looked at where Victor was previously with a look of shock:
”Victor, don ’t use your lightning powers! ”
”I didn ’t use any such powers, Pepper. ”
”That was just footwork that Scâthach taught Lacus. ”
”B-But not even Lacus is that fast!? ”
”She is. ”
Victor chuckled lightly, ”She just didn ’t tell or show you. ”
”UghUgh. ” Pepper made a strange sound as her cheeks grew like a squirrels.
”Hahaha~, no need to make that face, that ’s one of Lacus ’ problems too. ” He pat Pepper ’s head a little.
”What do you mean? ”
”Lacus unconsciously limits her speed when she ’s fighting alongside you and your sisters. ”
”And it ’s not only her. You, Siena, and Ruby seem to limit yourselves whenever you ’re fighting with each other in a team. ”
”You don ’t have to look at me with that suspicious look, I ’m really telling the truth. It ’s something you don ’t notice unless you look from the outside and have a good observant eye like me. ” Victor flashed a sly smile.
”…Ugh, fine, do what you want. ” Pepper stopped thinking, or contrary to that, she would just trust him.
”That ’s what I was aiming for. ” Victor laughed lightly, he looked ahead, and said:
”Watch me… I ’ll do it slowly for you to see. ”
”The trick is the breathing, and small impulses of force in the foot area. ”
Victor took a breath, and the moment he let out the air he ’d gathered, he directed a small amount of force to his legs, and-
”…. ” Pepper looked ahead, and saw Victor standing in the same position he at before he ’d suddenly appeared next to her.
Victor used the same technique and returned to Pepper ’s side.
”At higher levels, like Scathach and I use, you can combine techniques with your respective power. In my case, I combine this technique with the power of my lightning. ”
”And when I want to travel long distances, I combine Ruby ’s defense technique that transforms her entire body into an element, and this speed technique, so that I can become ’living lightning ’. ”
”You got it? ”
”No, I don ’t. ”
’This is going to take a while. ’
In an office that had several rags on the floor.
”I see, this plan is quite bold. ” Sasha spoke up after hearing the plan her mother and aunt came up with.
”All credit goes to my genius sister. ” Natashia bragged about her sister.
”Wrong, Sis. If you didn ’t have the strength to control the demon beasts, this would never have worked out. ”
”Yes, but the credit still goes to you who created the plan. ” Natashia nodded satisfied.
”…. ” Victoria smiled slightly when she saw her sister insisting on it. She didn ’t really care who got the credit or not, but seeing her sister praising her efforts made her feel good…
”Anyways, girls. ”
”I ’m leaving command of the Clan to my daughter. ” Natashia got up from the leader ’s chair, she looked at the chair, and saw that it was a little wet.
’Shit… My mother would kill me if she saw this… I ’m glad she ’s dead. ’
”!!! ” Natashia felt a strange shiver down her spine, she looked around but didn ’t see or feel anything.
”…Huh? ” Sasha looked at her mother in amazement.
”Fulger Clan is stabilizing, we have finally regained everything that was rightfully ours. Eventually those merchants who grew up during our crisis will have to sign a new contract with us, thus… Our Clan is stable. ”
”I need to prepare myself for this. ” Natashia opened a drawer and took out a letter that had the symbol of the King of Vampires.
She took the letter and threw it to Sasha.
Sasha picked up the letter and read:
”Oh, the meeting of Supernatural Beings. ”
”Yes. Clan Fulger, Snow, and Scarlett will participate as ’bodyguards ’ to the King. ”
”… Strange, wasn ’t it just an escort? Usually, the King takes only the current leaders of Clan Alioth, or their strongest General. ” Victoria, as someone very well understood of Nightingale ’s history, questioned.
”Indeed, I thought that was weird too, but it ’s the King, right? He is always planning something. ”
”Yes… ” Victoria spoke as she touched her chin.
”I ’m also not going to stand still and be caught off guard. I ’m going to visit Scathach and ask her if she knows anything. With my travel speed, I can get there much faster. ”
”I must prepare myself for whatever is to come. ” She spoke with a serious face worthy of a Count Vampire Clan leader.
Sasha narrowed her eyes, and said, ”… Mother, be honest, you ’re going to visit my husband, right? ”
Natashia didn ’t say anything, she just turned her face away and started whistling.
”I knew it! ”
”Sigh… ” Victoria visibly sighed:
”And I thought you were finally being serious. ”
”Hey! Don ’t judge me before you know anything, I ’m really going to talk to Scathach… I just never said I ’d go straight home after finishing my affairs. ” She flashed a sneaky smile.
”Technically, I ’m not lying, right? ”
”Yeah, yeah, you ’re just omitting. ” Victoria rolled her eyes, she already knew this game of her sister ’s, after all, she was the one who taught her that.
Natashia coughed in an attempt to change the subject, and spoke as she walked towards the exit.:
”Anyway, I have a job to do. My daughter, please lead the Clan when I am away-. ” As she went to grab the door handle, Sasha grabbed her shoulder.
”… What are you doing? ” Natashia asked.
”Mother, you won ’t even wait a day since your daughter slept with her husband, and you ’re already going to run after him? ”
”…Yes. ” She was very brazen.
”Ugh, I ’m sorry, okay? ” Natashia turned to her daughter: ”But I really can ’t hold back anymore, I feel like I ’m going to go crazy with frustration at any moment. Just thinking about that big, thick, thing filling my insides as it paints all over my insides with its seed, and covers me with its virile scent… ”
Natashia ’s eyes began to glow blood red, her breathing became more erratic and heavy, and an oppressive feeling began to leak from her body.
”…. ” Sasha and Victoria looked at Natashia with wide eyes in shock.
All these symptoms were ’blood hunger ’, although in Natashia ’s case, she must be hungry for many things, not just blood.
”My insides clench in frustration! ”
”I need my Darling since yesterday! Now that he ’s made you a woman, there ’s nothing stopping me, right!? ”
”… ” The two women ’s faces turned a little red when they heard what she said at the end.
”M-Mother, please don ’t yell. ” Sasha complained in a low tone, she was too embarrassed.
Why was this Clan made of people so… horny?
”If you need anything, just ask your aunt, and if you don ’t think you ’re capable of leading the Clan while I ’m gone, just let her handle it. ”
”…Eh? ” Victoria looked at her sister in shock.
”Are you sure about that? ”
”Yeah, in my opinion, you ’d make a great Countess, but due to a small problem, I ’m not going to give you that title. ”
”Strength… ” Victoria ’s face darkened, she understood very well what her sister was talking about.
Being a Countess was much more than a title, it was proof of her strength, and if there was a weak Count, greedy vampires wouldn ’t hesitate to try to challenge them for that title.
Why did Victor Alucard, the fifth Count of Vampires, never receive a challenge from the Vampires?
It was because he ’s strong and most, if not all, of his public appearances demonstrated how strong he was and how much potential he had.
Aside from that, his infamy in the Supernatural World community was well known, and that infamy only increased, shooting through the roof when he massacred 50% of Supernatural Beings in Japan.
He didn ’t care about his relationship with any race, and just did what he wanted. In the minds of many Noble Vampires, he was a madman.
”Yes, a weak Countess is just like a full glass of delicious blood being put before those greedy Vampires. ” Natashia said.
”Anyway, I ’m going, take care of our Clan, sister, my daughter. ”
”Yes, Mother/Sis. ”
”Mm. ” Natashia nodded satisfied, and soon her body began to be covered by lightning.
And the next moment, she was above the clouds.
”… ” She looked towards Scathach ’s territory, but… Her instinct made her turn towards Eleanor ’s territory.
When she was about to fly in that direction, she quickly shook her head in an attempt to clear her mind.
”Business first… Pleasures later. ” Her heart was bleeding from frustration, but she held on, she just had to visit Scathach, and then…
”Hehehehe~. ” A predatory smile appeared on her face.
”Let ’s finish this soon. ”
