Ex Strongest, Suffering from Muscle Pain

“Uh… This is weird…” (Soma)

The only person on the bed, Soma, was groaning.

What was full in his mind was a reflection.

After all, he was thinking that he made a mistake.

It was natural for Soma to think of such a thing.

Because Soma had been lying in bed for the past three days.

Since then, he wasn’t allowed to move from there.

Furthermore, Soma, who was told that he had no talent, quietly slipped out from the mansion three days ago.

In other words, Soma had always been on the bed from that day.

However, this was not a punishment in particular.

In the first place, the reason for Soma not being able to move from the bed, was because of his own intention.

If he tried to carelessly move, intense pain would run throughout his body, and it made him unable to move. So, he didn’t want to move.

However, he wasn’t injured.

It was the consequence of overusing his muscles.

It was just muscle pain.

“Hmmm… to be honest, although I made light of muscle pain… I didn’t expect it to be this much…” (Soma)

He had somehow misunderstood that muscle pain was something serious, but it wasn’t, even if it was this much.

Counting how long he had lived in the previous life, he had just disregarding the muscle pain he had for the first time in decades.

He was just paying for his own mistakes.

No, well, it was certain that the muscle pain was at the degree of severe pain that ran through his body, and he couldn’t properly move because of that.

But, he managed to reproduce the technique that made him known as the Sword God.

It might not be an exaggeration to say that it was miraculous to end like this.

It wouldn’t have been weird if one or two of his limbs had blown away.

In the end of the day, he was just paying for his own mistakes… and even that was repeated again, that’s all there was to it.

For the time being, he couldn’t do anything until the muscle pain subsided—

“…Hmmm?” (Soma)


When Soma was thinking about how to spend his time, he heard the sound of the door, which was suddenly being knocked.

Along with a familiar voice, the door was opened from the other side.

“Soma, it’s me, Camilla. Is it alright for me to enter?” (Camilla) (TLN: The name in raw is カミラ)

“Sure, no problem.” (Soma)

As he gave her permission to enter the room, the door was opened and a person appeared from there.

Should he say this was a matter of course, because she was someone that he knew.

A person with black eyes and black hair.

Shaking the long hair that had extended to her waist, the one who was looking at Soma with a worried expression was Camilla, the exclusive Appraiser of Soma’s household.

She was also the same-age friend of his mother. She was supposed to be in her late twenties soon, but as usual, he didn’t see it that much.

…No, should that statement be revised?

Rather than being young, it should be said that she was childish.

Anyway, her height was unusually short.

She was taller than Soma, after all, but when asked about their age differences, it would definitely be one digit different. However, if it was asked poorly, her age was probably thought to be even less than half of that.

At least, there was no mistake that no one would see her as an adult woman.

Well, even if that was said, his mother looked unusually youthful, but… was that a common characteristic in this world, or was that a specific characteristic?

“Hmmm… it seems that I am unable to come up with a conclusion, since there are too few samples.” (Soma)

“Wha? What are you talking about?” (Camilla)

“Nah, I’m just killing time talking nonsense. You don’t have to worry about it.” (Soma)

“Haa… well, it’s fine then.” (Camilla)

As he shrugged his shoulders while saying that, Camilla was staring at him.

The staring continued for a few seconds, as if she was trying to probe into the matter. And then, she let out a small sigh.

“For the time being, your complexion looks good. There are no problems, right?” (Camilla)

“That’s one thing… but I have muscle pain all over my whole body now. Are you going to say, that I am taking a day off?” (Soma)

“Well… I’m sorry, but I am not sure how to respond. Even reading a book is difficult now, huh?” (Camilla)

“I told you yesterday. You don’t have to worry. You are coming by every day like this, that’s already good enough.” (Soma)

The moment I said that, Camilla’s expression became cloudy. She probably understood what he meant.

His mother, Sofia, had never even shown her face since the first day.

But then, Soma was planning to say something to avoid the misunderstanding.

He only meant that, nothing else.

Yes, that was the only thing he could come up when looking at Camilla.

Nonetheless, if he made up a poor excuse, it would only make her more suspicious.

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

For that reason, Soma didn’t mention it any longer and decided to continue talking about another matter.

“Hmmm… that’s it, huh? Although this is troublesome, can you give me lessons, please?” (Soma)

“Lessons…?” (Camilla)

“Hmmm. You are a private tutor or something, right?” (Soma)

Private tutor.

There was only one meaning, and to put it simply, Camilla was Soma’s private tutor.

However, as mentioned earlier, Camilla was a dedicated Skill Appraiser.

Besides, there weren’t many reasons to make her to be a private tutor, and in fact, there were none.

Until three days ago.

From that day onward, what happened now was because of that.

All of the other tutors had been removed from Soma, and he understood what that meant.

It was because Soma was already worthless.

This was the judgment of the household, nothing related to any individual.

Soma didn’t know yet what kind of household he was in, but as he learned things until now, he knew to a certain extent.

And because of that, it wasn’t necessary for him to know the meaning.

Anyhow, why did Camilla become his private tutor?

Moreover, she was a Skill Appraiser.

The reason was unknown, since Soma arbitrarily asked for her, but… oh well, nothing was wrong with him speaking his mind and not holding back.

“It is certainly true, but… to be honest, Soma’s learning capability hasn’t been confirmed yet… For that reason, even if I give you lessons, what’s up with that…?” (Camilla)

“No, there is no need for you to confirm it in particular. Because I have only been interested in magic since the beginning, and I haven’t been taught that even once.” (Soma)

Yes, since he had to stay in bed, there was no need to worry about other petty things.

He became like this because he reproduced the sword technique he used in his previous life.

“Magic, is it? But, that is—…” (Camilla)

“You can really do anything, right? Because I am starving for information regarding magic.” (Soma)

Soma was actually testing to see if Camilla would say anything.

Which was why he interrupted her before she said it.

Because such things didn’t matter to him anymore.

Like, if he didn’t have a skill, that meant he couldn’t learn it?

He wouldn’t give up because of that reason.

Anyway, who decided that it was impossible to learn?

And no one could even prove that it was impossible.

Because Soma had done something impossible even with skills.

Even though he had no low-rank Swordsmanship skill, he knocked down a big tree with just a stick.

If that was the case… even with no skills, there was a possibility to use magic, right?

That was it.

However, Soma didn’t mentioned this to Camilla at all.

Since there was no need to do that.

That was fine, even if he was the only one knew it. The rest, he just had to work hard for it because it was his only aim.

Did she feel such a strong feeling from Soma?

Camilla didn’t say anything anymore. She bitterly smiled as if she gave up.

“…Got it. Well, I will give you magic lesson as a private tutor, alright?”

“Ouu!” (Soma)

“However, I am not very good at magic. Since it is necessary for me to check up a little bit more, I will let you know tomorrow.” (Camilla)

“Hmm, it’s fine. …Tomorrow will be fun.” (Soma)

Those words, of course, were truly coming from his heart.

He finally could gain information about magic.

There was no way that it wouldn’t be fun.

What kind of lesson he would get, and would he be able to understand it?

While thinking of that, a smile naturally appeared on Soma’s lips.

    Strange… Based on the POV of his mother from the previous chapter, I assumed things wouldn’t turn out the way they would… Guess they really take that seriously in that world…
    Thanks for the chapter!
