I Said Make My Abilities Average! 14

Was tired out from last week so I didn’t do any translating these last few days. Got a day off today so here’s a chapter for you guys.

But I do like how the average abilities tag in the word cloud is slowly getting larger.

And do try refrain from spoiling too much in the comments 😉

14 This time I won’t die!

 

Several days after she had stirred up the classroom, Adel was putting effort into her part time job at the bakery.

The bakery was opened on holidays due to a sense of professional duty although the sales had not been that good.

This was only natural though. On holidays most people did not need to work, including mothers who otherwise worked and could now cook all three meals of the day. And although bread was the staple food in their dishes, many had already bought it on weekdays or made dishes without bread. If you added the people who would bake bread by themselves if they had the time…

Of course, those who bought the bakery’s bread as lunch during work were also very limited on holidays.

Despite all these facts, the bakery didn’t close its door for the sake of those few who needed bread nevertheless.

 

And, yes, “the sales had not been that good” was in past tense.

Since Adel had started working there, the sales had slowly risen, reaching the level of a normal weekday.

The reason for this…

 

「Um, that one please!」

With rouge tinted cheeks, the apprentice of a nearby merchant pointed at a piece of bread.

 

Adel’s cute looks combined with her -for this world- unusually friendly service made the boys who were not used to girls think that “she likes me”.

And, although it had a lower status when compared with Adorei, Ekland academy was still admired by the common people. For a girl wearing such a prestigious uniform to work in a bakery could only mean one thing. Namely, that she was an extremely talented commoner who had entered via a scholarship. And as a fellow commoner, she was in the realm where their own affections could still reach her.

In front of me is a cute and smart girl who will bring in good money in the future. Furthermore, she always smiles at me. Faced with these impressions, there was no boy that wasn’t happy.

 

「Fufufu, Adel-chan really is a sly child…」

After the apprentice had left, an elderly woman from the neighborhood had decided to tease her.

「Obaa-chan, what rumors are you saying…」

Even though she had no good memories of her grandparents from her former life, in this world she could get along well with the elderly.

「It’s as she says. Like this it won’t be a problem to marry into a good family and have your own shop.」

「You too Jii-chan!?」

 

The bakery had also turned into a gathering spot for the elderly on holidays.

She was targeted by the lonely grandparents whose grandchildren had already left their homes. But it was no problem for Adel since she also enjoyed the company. It also helped that they dispersed the more aggressive men.

There was only one thing Adel had to lament.

Since lately there was no unsold bread left over by the time she closed the shop there were no leftovers for her.

 

As Adel had finished her work for today and was on her way back to the dormitory she noticed that a crowd had formed on the main road.

 

「Excuse me, could you tell me what is going on?」

「Ahh, yes, the carriage of the third princess is going to pass through here. Since we might get a glimpse at her highness it turned into this commotion.

If we get lucky she might even wave at us.」

The woman Adel asked explained to her.

Apparently the third princess rarely left the palace so there were not many who had seen her in person among the commoners.

 

(Since I’m already here taking a peek won’t hurt. There’s still more than enough time after all…)

Adel then made use of her small build, squeezing herself through the crowd until she reached the first row.

 

A short while after she had reached the first row, a convoy came into view at the end of the main road.

In the front were four spear wielding soldiers with swords hanging on their belts. Next were three mounted soldiers with lances. Behind them was an extravagant carriage followed by a similar arrangement of soldiers like in the front.

Since the carriage only moved along leisurely inside the capital, the footsoldiers who were most suited to paving the way and intercepting attackers were positioned to the front and back.

 

The convoy was gradually getting closer to her position, and when the foremost soldier was about to pass Adel a 5~6 year old boy was pushed onto the street by the crowd.

 

「Insolent rascal!」

 

The soldier in the front, whose way the boy had obstructed, brandished his spear and hit him with the bladeless end.

Receiving the hit squarely into his stomach, the boy was blown away and now lay on the ground silent and motionless. Since the boy was still in the convoy’s path, the soldier walked towards the child. His spear was readied to forcefully remove the obstacle.

 

(…he will die!)

 

Before she noticed it Adel had already left the crowd of people and was running towards the boy.

 

(Somehow this seems familiar…

Something like this certainly happened before. Will I die again this time…)

 

Despite being aware of this danger, Adel’s body didn’t stop and she covered the boy with it. Draped over him, Adel strongly imagined it.

 

(Lattice Force Barrier!)

 

Pling!

 

The soldier’s spear swung with his full power was deflected back by a semi-invisible wall around Adel.

 

Lattice Force. The cohesion energy that is released when gaseous atoms, molecules or ions condense into crystalline lattices.

 

Wanting some kind of barrier, Adel thought of something she had seen in an anime despite knowing nothing about how it worked. Since the nanomachines would do something even if she just imagined it, she wanted to make the image as strong as possible and searched her memories for a barrier-like ability. What sprung up was the term “lattice energy” that had come up in a book she had read for fun in her previous life.

Lattice. Cohesion energy. Blocky and rocky sounding words.

Even though she didn’t have the slightest idea what these terms meant, they gave Adel the feeling that they would somehow block the attack.

Since she had the word “lattice” in mind, the barrier didn’t turn into a smooth dome, but rather into something made of several straight glass panes.

 

「Wha…」

Raising a voice of consternation, the soldier repeatedly smashed the ferrule of his spear against the invisible wall without result.

 

「Stand down!」

At some point one of the mounted soldiers had dismounted his horse and was closing in.

Judging by his equipment and mannerisms his rank was above that of the soldiers. Since he rode on a horse maybe he was a knight…

This knight who had seen everything from atop his horse thrust his spear towards Adel. With the blade facing towards her.

 

Pling!

 

「Impossible…….」

 

(This is bad bad bad bad!)

 

Adel was totally in panic.

Of course picking a fight with royal guards was a problem, but the “Lattice Force Barrier” was a big one too.

Magic of this sort was, according to Adel’s knowledge, completely unknown in this world.

Magic used to cancel to magic attacks existed. Likewise, magic to raise an earth wall to shield against swords and arrows, as well as equivalent water and wind spells existed too. But a magic that could completely defend against physical attacks without a medium was unheard of even in myths and legends.

If such a magic can be used in an instant, victory in battle would certain. Since, when the enemy’s attacks are meaningless, you can just one sidedly attack them after all.

She would be taken to the palace without a doubt if she didn’t do anything.

…or she would be executed for attacking the princess.

 

(This is bad! Exposing my magic and the rudeness towards the princess’ group is a double disaster.

What can I do…)

While still covering the boy, Adel desperately tried to come up with a good idea. But in her nervous state her head was empty.

 

「Y-you, who are you! A demon, or even an devil!!」

Unconsciously taking a couple of steps back, a fearful expression had crept onto the knights face.

 

(….a devil? Even disregarding the demon comment, do those even exist… That’s it!)

Having found a solution to her predicament, Adel released the barrier.

With the sound of breaking glass, the “Lattice Force Barrier” crumbled into fragments that vanished shortly after.

Since she could easily block and grab the spear when she used her real strength, there was no real danger even if she released the barrier.

Adel then slowly rose up from her position, turning to the knight with an expressionless face.

 

「To think someone would dare to lay a finger on this divine vessel!」

 

「「「Eh?」」」

 

「I asked who dared to try to harm this vessel that I dwell in!」

 

((((Eh?))))

 

Completely baffled by what was going on, the soldiers, the knights, and the surrounding populace was left with confusion etched onto their faces.

Decendance of a goddess. How many more events do we need until the Holy Adel Theocracy?

Sadly, no wild Merry Pope has appeared yet.

actually if shes seen as the vessel for a god they cant do shit to her both her family and the royals, if family trys to do something just act like a god and put them in their place, if royals do something scare em, show em something flashy or chop off someones head without them knowing how you did it….. all have same effect

just since i’m curious what anime should that specific barrier be from normally?

melisaartemis
Guest

My guess is Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) One of the character (Kyouko)’s Magic is capable of creating barrier called “Lattice Barrier”. The barrier was strong enough to even block attack from a witch

I’ve heard such “good” things about that that I tried to watch it twice but I just couldn’t force myself… maybe third times the charm

average lifespan between a god and a bug? infinity + some seconds/x is still infinity

dandy
Guest

true, infinity is still infinity no matter what amount of years you take away from it

Jeg
Guest

Yes, but her being average does not include God. Still, a very long life span.

Anonymous
Guest

it would be the dragon’s lifespan then

carmeops
Guest

she has control authorization average between god and human, so god IS included in the average

now, since the holy spirit is a shared nanomachines consciousness, god is probably a supercomputer or something, so lifespan can’t be averaged with him/it

jeg
Guest

Sorry but no. She was only given authorization but it has also limitations. Plus God himself said that she is average from the weakest to the strongest inhabitants of that world. Is god an inhabitant of that world?

Owl
Guest

Yes. 🙂

Owl
Guest

Yes. 🙂

LoliStalker
Guest

that is not certain yet but from what we can get so far,power and magic is not based of half god but half ancient dragon and authority is half god so its safe to assume that her life span and ability wise would be half ancient dragon with certain exception

Pan
Guest

Well…. if it was average from, uh Divine being (like the god, which is timeless) and, say, bacteria (the shortest being, like, minutes only?) that will make Adel… semi divine? Or was it demi-god?

Or maybe between bacteria and dragon (which live long, long life) it’s safe to say Adel will outlast almost all people.

「To think someone would dare to lay a finger on this divine vessel!」
>so who said this?

「「「Eh?」」」
>everyone?

「We asked who dared to try to harm our vessel!」
>is this someone else or is it adel??

((((Eh?))))”
>must be everyone

so who said who on the last part?
the idea is somewhat lost or is it implied we’re supposed to be confused as the 3rd person’s view?

the only pope i recall rasingthedead is familiar with must be the one in kumo-chan =_____= but that doesn’t seem merry to me

superdbgtfan

adel said the ones that aren’t multiple at the end. and the pope is from evil god average

Roukanken

It’s Adel that started sprouting the stuff about vessel – she’s going for possesed by goddess/angel/other divine thing trope.

I fail to see how will it help her though. Probably will onky make her “not seeing average” problem only bigger.

Jeg
Guest

They might instead think of her as some kind of prophet.

SubZole

I guess she thought that its still better than being seen as a demon.

Tereus

YEY The nanomachines have spoken 😀

dandy

really? i think it was her idea since she said

Having found a solution to her predicament, Adel released the barrier.

meaning shes gonna use their superstition against them

gianoria7

Thanks for the chapter 😀

So, her best idea is to create a religion?
Yes, that’s a very average thing to do :p

Will she use the nanomachines to change her appearence?
Because appearing in the middle of a crowd while she is a rather famous bread seller is probably not a good idea.

You ain’t seen famous yet! lol

oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! more pls!! i beg you!!

Kevin
Guest

I believe she is using her knowledge of history on Terra (official name of earth) to impact her thoughts here. Like how in the middle/dark ages knights/nobles/royalty are able to do anything they wanted, but where more afraid of loosing there standings as controllers then anything.

Jeg
Guest

Not official name but Latin name of earth. The universally accepted name of our planet mainly used in science is “Earth” with a capital “E”. But for casual and conversational uses, it’s translation in once country is used.

Ahahaha !!! (๑ ˃̵͈́▽˂̵͈̀ )ノシ))
She’s fully turning on her chuuni mode???
Will she be able to escape or she’ll be brought to the castle (or a temple) to be revered?
All hail our Goddess, Adel-sama!
Her teaching includes : be average in everything you do

Thanks for the chapter!!!

She escapes but not before screwing over her father and stepfamily. Then again, they kind of totally deserve it.

And then for the rest of the story we never hear of Adel again, only Mile.

She totally can. She just has to go to a different country, adopt a different name, and then totally fail at being an average hunter. Oh wait, that isn’t living an average life is it? ~w~w~w~

Adel… You’re strong enough, just grab the boy, and run away. Or if you’re gonna pull a bluff/fool the guards, at the very least, change your appearance with disguise magic or something. You’re ruining your own normal life, damnit.

You know, Adel, as a daughter of a noble, you outrank that poor sucker, just use that to blast his ears off. Not pretend to be a Goddess. 🙂

She’s obviously a believer in the “big guns are better” theory lol.

And yes, I know she’s “technically” excommunicated from her family, but the outside world does not know that.

Anonymous
Guest

She’s only halfway up the totem pole and that’s the carriage of a princess. She doesn’t outrank the person that matters right now.

SubZole
Guest

Offending the personal guards or retainers of royalty is almost as bad as offending royalty itself as those represent them and they also have special authority. Not to mention that royal knights usually are nobles themself too.

Adel should be from one of the highest ranking noble families to be able to have any influence in this situation.
Maybe the most she could achieve by only using her family name is that they won’t kill her in the spot and send him to jail instead. If she can prove that she is a noble, which i doubt.

Anonymous
Guest

Adel is currently having her birthright usurped. As in, she thinks she would be killed if she revealed she is the heir to the position. Don’t worry, it gets resolved in the palace with jail time for daddy and stepfamily, cos you know, the real noble is the mother and the daddy just married into nobility?

xenocross
Guest
Anonymous
Guest

While she does have several other problems I think her main one stems from not being used to how OP she is. She still thinks like a “normal person” as if the power structure is not the opposite way she imagines it. (i’ll be killed. That’s a better outlook than alot of MCs since only plot armour stops them from being curbstomped by everyone in the top half that they enraged.) She probably didn’t even need magic to tank that attack and could have just ran.
