Villain Is on Vacation

"Every day is so annoying and tiring. Just working, eating, and pooping. I rarely get any peace of mind." Rain grumbled. "I want some rest and go on vacation. It's good I am going on vacation tomorrow. Goodbye to annoying work for a few days," he cheered. As he was crossing the road, he saw a truck coming towards him. "Looks like, my life suc--" Whether gratifying or pathetic, almost the next moment, he got crushed by the truck, died, and transmigrated into the world of the game "Saga of the Magical Knight" as a mid-tier villain, Rain Holmes. "Welcome to the fantasy world, I guess." Fortunately, the system was there to help him. [Host should choose one choice among the following three choices.] | 1. Supporting Character | | 2. Villain | | 3. Extra Character | "Supporting Character sucks, and being a villain is tiring and risky. I choose to be an extra character." Rain answered. [Okay.] 'Who cares about that protagonist and heroines, I rather go on vacation and live a free life.' Rain scoffed. He didn't care about the plot, he wanted [vacation]. However, soon he realized it won't be as easy as he thought. "Hey, runaway Young master, spar with me!" The musclehead Villain roared. "Rain, you are only my friend, I won't let other bitches have you." One of the heroines declared. "But didn't he say he love me?" A mysterious beauty appeared. "Is getting vacation that hard?" Rain said in an exhausted tone.

Outdoor Training Starts

[Three days later]

While Rain read books in the library and trained in his private area, rumors circulated among the staff and others in the main building that he had become a bookworm after getting injured and feeling depressed.

 

Rain's parents, concerned about his mental health, asked him about it during breakfast.

But he repeated assured them, "It's okay. I'm fine now, and since I just got healed, I don't think training is a good idea. I'm studying for the academy entrance exam instead."

Under Rain's explanation, they finally breathed a sigh of relief.

***

Rain was sitting on his bed, exhausted from his latest training session.

In past few days, he spent most of time studying in the library, pouring over books and manuals about swordsmanship and mana control.

He found that many of the subjects were familiar to him, as he had been a model student in his previous life.

This made studying easier for him, along with the fact that he possessed a calm mind and an exceptional memory.

Despite the long hours he spent studying, Rain was also committed to physical training and mana control practice.

He would often work late into the night, practicing until his body ached and his eyes were heavy with fatigue.

When he became tired, he would take a break and meditate, using fatigue recovery potions to help him regain his strength.

Once his energy was restored, he would return to his training.

Rain also made use of artifacts and growth potions to enhance his progress, knowing that they were only effective in the lower ranks.

His dedication and hard work paid off, as he steadily increased his stats and grew stronger with each passing day.

Throughout all of this, Rain entrusted his assistant, Mark, with various tasks, confident in his abilities to carry them out successfully.

As he recalled it, he couldn't help but grin mischievously. 'I can't wait to see what Mark comes up with.' 

Amidst his reflections, Rain uttered, 'Status.' Subsequently, a diaphanous window materialized before him.

The appearance of the screen was no stranger to him.

[A/N : (n) means it is a new skill.]

Rain looked at his status window and smiled. 'Good. After three days of training, I've made so much progress,' he thought to himself.

He was pleased with the improvements he had made.

Most of his progress was due to his [#Hard Worker] trait and the slow restoration of his old powers, which had diminished after he regained memories from his past life.

Over the past three days, Rain had been fully immersed in studying the theories and manuals of Swordsmanship and Marksmanship.

Finally, he had achieved a rank of E-Grade, which was the minimum requirement for enrolling in the academy.

'I still have a long way to go before I can reach my previous rank [D-].'

He had been on the verge of becoming a D ranker before his memories returned, therefore restoring his rank was necessity.

[Only Rain measures Rank in (-) () (+). Everyone in this world measures them in the early, mid, and advanced stages.]

'According to the plot and Academy's ranking system, most of the first-year students are expected to be D-rankers. However, the protagonist, who is a C-ranker at the entrance ceremony, will be considered quite talented and appointed as the chief of the freshman year.'

Remembering this, Rain felt he still needed to work hard. 

He started observing his stats to track his progress.

His strength, stamina, and health had increased and were now in the E range.

Despite this, his intelligence stat remained at a B- grade as he had only rephrased his knowledge about this world.

Therefore, it might be challenging to improve further.

Among all the stats, his Mana, which was initially negligible, had also increased and was now graded F instead of G.

Rain then shifted his focus to his skills.

He trained relentlessly with a sword and swung it like a madman until his Swordsmanship had improved to an elementary level.

Additionally, he acquired a Mana control skill by practicing how to manipulate mana while reading books.

Through hard work and his calm demeanor, Rain also gained a concentration skill that proved to be extremely helpful in both studying and training.

He could concentrate for a short period, and although it sometimes caused him headaches, he could learn faster with it.

Unfortunately, there was almost no change in his life skills.

'Now that indoor training is done, it's time for outdoor training,' 

Rain was excited as he thought about his outdoor training plan.

He had been feeling restless lately and decided that he needed to step up his training.

After some time, he came up with a plan that included the following steps:

1. He planned to start with bodyweight exercises, as his stats were mostly E grade and needed improvement. He believed that weightlifting might help raise them.

2. There were no hidden pieces at the academy for Rain, but all of the heroine's routes had hidden pieces.

Many of them were wasted or fell into the hands of some extras, so Rain planned to collect them.

3. The third heroine's capture route was near Rain's city since she was his high school classmate.

They were just casual friends and nothing more. Therefore, he planned to collect some rewards from there, too.

4. Rain needed funds to make his plan a reality, and luckily, he received an allowance every month from his family.

He would use those funds to his advantage. [Pay to Win]

5. Lastly, he decided to keep his plan secret from everyone. He knew that if anybody knew about his plan beforehand, it would be annoying.

As Rain reviewed his "outdoor training plan," he couldn't help but smirk.

Although it was a good plan, one thing troubled him.

'There are only four days left before my birthday, and I am so tight on schedule.' Thinking about it, Rain let out a sigh.
