Inept

I’m Taking Revenge for My Murdered Classmates Using Weapons Made from Their Souls


“That little one has quite a useful skill, doesn’t he?”Bookmark here

I was alone with Charlotte inside the wall that Shinji had built for us.Bookmark here

Even if I wanted to leave, my body refused to move. It was probably due to Tsukasa’s command.Bookmark here

“The ‘General’ skill. Having a good commander is enough to turn the tide of battle.”Bookmark here

Charlotte’s right. Since Tsukasa took over, the odds seemed to be stacked in our favor.Bookmark here

He made sure to distribute members so people could take turns resting and using their skills, and his commands allowed them to suppress the goblins efficiently.Bookmark here

“Hey. Can we really go home after this war?”Bookmark here

“Of course. I never lie.”Bookmark here

Charlotte replied with a smile. As if I could trust her.Bookmark here

At the same time, I also knew that we had no choice but to obey her.Bookmark here

I should use this time to do what I can. I thought hard about what I could do as the only person without a skill.Bookmark here

I took out our itinerary from my bag and flipped to the class roster at the very back.Bookmark here

Student number 1 (male), Yuichi Ando.Bookmark here

I took out a pen and wrote his skill below his name.Bookmark here

Skill: Reconnaissance.Bookmark here

“Hmm? What are you doing? You don’t need to do that, you know. That little one knows everyone’s skill.”Bookmark here

I know. Still, this was better than doing nothing.Bookmark here

I ignored Charlotte and began writing down all the skills I knew of at the moment.Bookmark here

Student number 2 (male), Ryo Izumi.Bookmark here

Skill: None.Bookmark here

As I wrote that down, I realized once more that I was the only one unable to contribute to the class.Bookmark here

“I’ve met many Saviors in the past, but you’re the first person to not receive a skill.”Bookmark here

“You knew?”Bookmark here

“Of course. I’m the one who sent you those texts describing your skills.”Bookmark here

So she had been aware when she winked at me.Bookmark here

“Why am I the only one without a skill?”Bookmark here

“I don’t know. This has never happened before. It’s possible that your skill might awaken by chance. Better not count on it, though. You might as well be proud of the fact that you don’t have a skill.”Bookmark here

Charlotte made a half-hearted attempt to cheer me up.Bookmark here

Not wanting to talk anymore, I resumed my task of writing down my classmates’ skills.Bookmark here

Student number 3 (male), Daigo Oyama.Bookmark here

Skill: Enlargement.Bookmark here

“Oh, what futile and earnest efforts! How touching! I’ll be cheering for you, dear.”Bookmark here

I feel like punching her. Correction, I will punch her someday. Bookmark here

“How many goblins left, Corporal Ando?”Bookmark here

“Yes, sir! We’ve almost annihilated the remaining eight, sir.”Bookmark here

“I’m impressed that everyone’s still alive. I was expecting at least half of you to die.”Bookmark here

Our intense battle with the goblins came to an end with no casualties on our side. Bookmark here

Although I was unable to help, I was the first to cry out in joy.Bookmark here
