I Said Make My Abilities Average! 06

Another chapter, that really was mostly done for the majority of the time since the first post… but it was troublesome near the end. Hopefully the wait wasn’t too painful.

This likely wouldn’t have been done at all right now if not for the person helping me out so hats off to them. They are also the only reason this approaches anything resembling proper English as I just quickly get the meaning and move on.

Anyways please enjoy, as I get to work on the next chapter.

06 I am an Ordinary girl 2

 

The day after Adele’s first day of work.

Today is the day that the test that decides the division of classes for the noble children is held.  

 

Even if you say noble, it’s just the ordinary noble children, my step-sister Prissy goes to the advanced school; Adorei. The children coming to Ekland school are mostly very poor nobles, with no chance to inherit, or become useful in a political marriage, or they’re not particularly promising in comparison to a child of a moderate merchant family. Still, it prepares them for the future by letting them make connections with powerful merchant families, and is a situation where a girl should try to ingratiate herself with the son of a successful merchant family.

 

However, even if you tell a ten year old that they’re probably not going to understand.

In particular, when one is a noble, one sees themselves differently from commoners, and the child is usually absorbed in a sense of entitlement.

 

As for Adele, she was feeling relieved that she was not out of place among the others.

Compared to what Prissy was given everything was lower quality. In addition to the considerable trip on the stagecoach, my clothes resembled that of a daughter of the lowest and poorest nobility.

Moreover, after the last incident where she “washed her clothes with water…”

They only didn’t become completely wrinkled because a kind lady lent me a change of clothes.

 

First of all is the written test.

A brief history of the country, the name of the king and other great people, knowledge of neighboring countries, Manners and etiquette, arithmetic, common sense, etc…

The knowledge of Adele before the awakening was considerable, the problems were easily solved for the current Adele who can instantly recall all the details. …Because her family was ignoring her Adele spent most of her time in the study.

As for Arithmetic, using the memories of her previous life, it was child’s play.

Adele solved each problem using her full strength. She has to be in the highest class. If the class level is too low she’ll become too bored.

Diligent study falls under the ‘ordinary’ category. Though there will always be someone who is number one when it comes to tests.

 

To tell the truth, the level of class you’re enrolled in is decided almost entirely with this written test.

It’s hard to teach when the level of the students in the class isn’t nearly even. For example, when middle school and high school students are mixed together it’s hard to teach both at the same time.

 

On the other hand, the practical skill is different. A class of only amateurs and a class of only experts, it is extremely difficult to teach both. This is because everyone needs help.

If the class has people mixed from amateur level to expert, the instructor can focus on those needing help and leave some of the work helping the amateurs to the experts. Moreover, by seeing the expert train amateurs, the instructor can think of ways to teach the experts.

In other words, in magic and martial arts when the class isn’t divided by skill level it’s convenient for the instructor. For the skilled student it’s also quite easy, but it’s annoying and inefficient for their training.

 

On top of that, even if you can’t use magic you still have to take the magic class.

In the future, there is a possibility of having a magic user as a subordinate, and/or, if they become a soldier, there are also times when a magic user may become their opponent. Knowing about magic becomes necessary, even if you can’t use it yourself.

 

After the written exam is the physical ability exam.

She has no real intention of joining with a sports scholarship. It’s just necessary to show that one is healthy and can participate in martial classes without any problems.

Adele carefully picked up the indicated equipment. Very carefully.

It’s absolutely important she not give a weird result here.

That’s because, Adele is supposed to be a “very common ordinary girl.”

Therefore, she carefully noted the numbers of the child in front of her and adjusted her results to match them. With that you should be able to think she’s an “ordinary child.”

 

And last comes magic.

About thirty percent of people can use magic. The people who can make a living with that is about one in three. In other words about one tenth of people. For the remaining two thirds who can use magic they can at least light a campfire or don’t have to carry a water bottle. There’s some degree of convenience to it.

As for Adele before the awakening, if she trained she could have barely made it within the 10% in the future, it was to such a degree/level. Still even in this world there are some people that are favored. Anyways if Adele takes a carriage/wagon that travels to the desert, if something happens she has a better chance to return alive. Enough for it to become the source of a meal.

However, the magic of Adele today…

 

For safety, it would be better to not practice magic at all.

But then it becomes inconvenient. Because it’s not so bad with effort, I want to practice just a little. In addition, if I pretend to not use it all, when I carelessly use it by chance, the case comes out and I’ll fall into an unavoidable scary situation.

 

Afterall, Adele could use it before, so as expected this would be a wise policy.

Adele who thought as such, carefully watched the magic that a person in front of her used so as to carefully regulate her own trying to get it to be approximately equal.

 

(Because power is 1/6800, and the power is human average, I will try for around 1/10,000, fine tuning it and lowering it further to the strength of the one before!)

 

Basun!

 

The fireball of exactly the right size fires, and Adele sighs in relief. You can’t call it a fireball spell, it’s on the same level as a gloomily burning coal.

… However, everyone including the teacher was staring at Adele, with their mouth half open.

 

“That, That magic was without aria….”

 

(…. Ah, I forgot the aria….)

 

Actually the spell’s aria is unneeded as long as the thought waves are sent. For people who can’t imagine a logical image that conveys the chemical, energetic, and molecular changes the aria [Swirl flame, gather and become one to smash the enemy!] directs the thought wave instead.To that end, it was easy to speak aloud and make the intent certain.

Of course, though it was also possible to recite only in your head, however then the thought wave becomes bottled up in your head and drops the emission power drastically, because the words in your head are the same the time it takes to cast is unaffected, it is used mostly for surprise attacks.

 

Adele just imagined the resulting phenomenon, and it happened instantly without blinking. Done with a similar strength to the person before her.

And even if it was the same strength, it being “unchanted” alone means it is quite different to a person of this world.

It’s a good thing that the person who saw only understood she’d done it without a chant, but even that is enough to show that Adele was a master who far exceeded her age.

 

( Ara, I have done it now….

No, but aren’t there a lot of people who can use chantless magic? Everyone just doesn’t use it… It just so happens that I am good at Fireball magic, and only that can be used in a hurry with no aria! I am just an ordinary girl! Yes!)

 

New students suddenly begin to whisper to each other, as for teachers when looking at them, they all have a look of surprise floating on their face. It’s something I’m probably going to be hearing about a lot from now on.

 

All told without any particular problems, the ability examination comes to an end, the students at the training field then were dismissed. Adele went back to the dormitory.

Until in the training area a single boy remained.

The fifth son of the poor baron family, Kelvin von Barium…

 

The Barium family was poor. Though it is poor, the Baron was a virile sort and had three sons and one daughter with his wife, furthermore he made a pass at a maid and had two more sons and another daughter.

The Baron, who was promiscuous when it came to woman relations, at least was not a terrible person about it. The maid continued to receive pay and he gave the children a warm reception, and they lived in the mansion brought up as if they were his legitimate children. The legal wife never treated the children poorly, and loved them properly as if they were siblings of her own children.

 

However, regrettably they’re poor.

Though the legal wife’s children were sent to the advanced Adorei school, it was impossible to produce enough money to send the maid’s children there as well.

The eldest son is the heir. The second son is reserved for if anything happens to the eldest. The third son was to be a knight or even an imperial guard, possibly even a high ranking official, it was a good bargain, if things go well he may even be married into the family of a baron or viscount. Those expectations are had for them.

If they grow up to be good looking, the girls may become the brides of sons of rich merchants or noble families. To improve the possibility of that happening even a little, they had to go to the better educational institution even if it meant the family having to work hard.

For that reason, going to the Ekland school that is lower class, it will be just Kelvin’s older brother the fourth son, and himself. It’s what you’d expect.

 

However, the fourth son had very high talent with magic.

Enough talent to feed himself with, or rather, enough talent to become an imperial court magician.

 

It had been decided the fourth son would be quickly sent to the advanced school Adorei, eventually, the only one still going to the Ekland lower class institute was Kelvin.

 

With seven brothers and sisters, only just him.

Why! For what reason!

 

Kelvin bore a grudge against the unfairness of the world, his mood stormy.

However, he understood rationally that it couldn’t be helped. There was no other way.

The financial burden of sending the child to an advanced academy is by no means small.

Including the large entrance fee, tuition of three years, teaching material expenses, food cost, boarding fees, clothes fee, and so forth for seven people… It cannot be taken out at all. Probably, they fell into considerable distress at the fourth son’s school expense.

Still, the lower class academy’s expenses are around 1/10 of the senior institutes, when compared. And he is the son of a maid.

The lawful wife, without complaint or ill intent, had apologized.  If I were to complain about it, I would be punished.

 

Ok, I’ll become the top then!

I’ll become the strongest and show up those in the advanced school!

I am confident in my body that I had my elder brothers train. First, I’ll show you my power in the tests for admission!

 

Kelvin thought so. However, it is…

 

After he put out his highest record the girl who stared at it gave the same record and showed the best run.

Though he did his best to break his limit, that girl who watched him handled it the same number of times/ Moreover, even though she looked like she could do more, she’d suddenly act like she was tired suddenly and stopped at the same number of times as him.

The javelin, long jump, and push ups were all the same. 

Everything was being stopped according to my record. Although I still appeared slightly ahead.

Moreover, the use of the magic…!

 

Shit! Shit! Shit! 

Don’t make light of me! 

I’ll pass her. I will exceed that woman!

 

Kelvin von Barium.

It was the moment when the goal of his school life for the next three years was made.

I don’t exist, true story.

Hey, I can understand wanting to be better than “average”… ?

Thanks for the chapter! ?

I am really liking this. Is her str the average between a flea and an elder god? what about her dex, con, int, wis & cha?

By the way, could we get a link to the original, if it exists? I really wanna read more and am willing to suffer through GT

None of her abilities are “average”. They’re all the in dead middle of available possibilities. As Adele says, that’s in no way how averages work.

Neruz
Guest

Her abilities are the mean of all available possibilities, it’s not the average she wanted but it is -technically- an average.

GinnyD
Guest

Median – like how her social rank is determined – is also considered an average. Averages can be mean, median, and mode. It looks like the being who gave her abilities wanted to be technically correct, but not follow her intentions at all

Ved
Guest

In fairness, protag only wants to be average so she can make friends and fit in. And you don’t need to be average to do that. So “God” was probably fudging the spirit of her intent a little.

Seink

It seems like int and wis status doesnt really exist :p
if it did, she would be way smarter than that XD
Im not calling her dump, but she is surelly not ‘half the greatest genius’ ;p, she seems fairly common in the inteligence aspect XD

Belonging to the five men of the poor baron family, Kelvin von Barium…

This line is pretty awkward. It probably has something to do with being the fifth son.

Maybe…?

He meant a third of 30%

gohankuten

It was 1/3 of the people that can use magic which was 3/10ths of all people hence 1/10 or 10% of the people can have magic that financially supports them.

For someone who wants to be average, she compared herself to one person and not an average of a few people.

Her mistake was copying a random person and being (un)lucky enough to chose the person who would likely be number one. She rolled a d20 expecting a 10 or 11 and got a 20.

Haha, god agreed to make her abilities average but her luck is definitely on the low end of the spectrum. Also thanks for the chapter!

or maybe it the contrary and she is very luck (half maxed out luck lol 500 out of 999)

Every harem MC needs a tsundere, right? I guess I don’t see this labeled as a reverse harem, but just in case….

Thanks for the chapter~!

Poor Kelvin, it was his sad fate that Adele was tested after him during the practical tests…or perhaps it was her fate?

Like how it is progressing so far, nanomachine, yorushiku!

Raufgar

…I just hope it won’t progress until the point where she has to mutter :

“Nanomachine. Kursnik 02. 40% power release. Engage.”

Nuage

40% ? Do you want her to nuke a town or what? lol But I can definitely see that happening ahah

He will show abilities that would match that of the strongest human in school, meanwhile she will keep matching her power level and making him work even harder to surpass her. He is the Vegeta of the series. He will probably end up stronger than any human has ever become before and still no match for ‘average’ girl

thx for the chapter ^^ it’s really amusing novel 😀

Just started reading today, but it gives me the same vibe as Evil God Average (for obvious reasons), and that one was fun to read, so I’m eager to see where this one is going.

Thanks for the translation.

Hi! Any news about when the next chapter will be finished?

Vik

Kryisme are you still working on this?

jeg

If you think about it, her biggest mistake was asking god to make her abilities average. And the god probably thought it to be the average in god standards.

Anonymous

Kinda like some other girl i know…That end up being an average goddess.

gohankuten
Guest

No the God knew what she meant but decided to purposefully change it to be a different average than what she wanted cause he wanted her to be able to survive since he felt responsible for her death lol.

Will someone from RTD give us some info about this translation? Is it on hold, was it dropped or translator is missing?
