“I don’t have a background in education or special talent, I have finally gotten a chance. If I don’t see the future then how could I know if its beautiful or not…. what I know… is how society works.”
I can’t retaliate.
I let go of my chance without utilizing my blessed situation and did not make any efforts. Whatever I say, it will be just be empty words. It will not affect Mr. Yamamoto’s heart.
There is not power in my words.
“Hey, why is Yoshio crying? So this is where you cry.”
Crying? I am crying now?
Am I sympathetic to Mr. Yamamoto’s situation or is it for my misery? I don’t even know which but my tears did not stop.
“Yamamoto-san is fine. He is much better than me.”
“Do you hate monks who have lived without any trouble?”
“No, I didn’t even realize that I was blessed and did nothing for ten years. With just a little courage I could have done many things. I thought that my life was unhappy.”
Its frustrating that the sooner I would have noticed, the more different future would have awaited me.
I could have made Seika happy.
I may have been able to get rid of my family concerns.
I didn’t do anything and was just a burden to everyone.
“Huh, it’s a cheap sympathy, but if you think so, don’t look it and be silent. It’s the last wave of Temptation of Evil God.”
Yamamoto shows off the screen of his smartphone.
《The Temptation of the Evil God Last Wave》》
It was flashing red.
“This is the last attack on which I have put all of my fortune. If I can’t make a base fall then its the game over….I will perish.”
Dozens or may hundreds of monsters are swarming the base.
I don’t think that the villagers can handle that number.
There are strong monsters which I have never seen. If I use Golem Summon then it might be possible or they will be annihilated.
Gams, Chem, Carol, Laila, Lodis, Murus, Ran, Kan…..my precious villagers will be killed.
How can I help the villagers.
Something has to be done, my impatience was accumulating…the sound of the door opening was heard.
“I heard a loud voice, have your friends came?”
The door opens and Seika meets my eye.
Why at the worst timing!
“Well, who? Robber?”
“Dont make a noise!”
Yamamoto swings the crowbar towards Seika-
My face turns pale and my while body heats up as if burning.
I moved unconsciously.
I got over the sofa between Yamamoto and me and it him with a tackle.
The opponent was un-trained so he hit the wall due to the momentum.
If I can steal the crowbar and hold him down then I can block his movements.
At that moment I felt a severe pain, something hit my back.
I was beaten by the crowbar.
“The idiot is coming straight to the blade. You’re really bad!”
Repeated shocks run on my back.
The pain continues twice, thrice. The heave object hits my back many times.
It hurts, hurts, hurts, hurts, hurts.
There is no voice in my mouth due to the far too much pain. The blood which was boiling, now feels surprisingly cold.
Maybe some of the bones are broken. There are actors who fight with broken bones but now I can affirm that it is a lie. I am going crazy with the pain.
What did I do to experience such painful feeling when I was only trying to help? I am not a many with such a sense of justice.
I dont feel my hand holding down the opponent due to the pain.
It would be easier if I fall down like this…..
But I never let go of his hand.
Seika will be attacked if we are separated. I have decided to never regret again.
“Escape … R. Escape quickly, c … Ret!”
To the simmering cry, I
“No more regrets … no more! Seika, run away!”
I shouted with my last power.
She nodded with grunted face with tears and shouted, “I’m calling for help!”
She tried to get out of the door which was kept open.
“Trying to escape.”
Yamamoto shakes his crowbar in his demon like appearance and trys to throw it at Seika.
Looking back Seika’s face is in despair.
I have to stop him. I think so but my body isnt moving anymore.
I tried to reach out, ignoring the pain in my whole body.
My hand-could barely grab Yamamoto’s wrist.
“Dont stop me … yeah, what is this?
I was afraid of the worst moment and unintentionally closed my eyes but there was no pain or scream and instead I heard confused Yamamoto voice.
When I open my eyes, I see him staring at his arm.
“What’s going on? Why is my arm not moving?What’s wrong with my arm!”
His right arm has changed to a stone like color and texture.
“What, what? You did it!”
In front of Yamamoto’s gaze while he was shouting was Destiny.
It walked calmly towards us in this state.
“Ahhh, a monster is approaching! What’s this yellow lizard! Hey, dont come here!”
It climbs on the scar Yamamoto-san’s stone-like arm. It spits a purple smoke from its mouth from a close range.
Yamamoto starts coughing violently and falls down while shedding tears and runny nose.
“Well, whats that lizard ……… a lizard …”
Slightly confused, Seika suddenly becomes surprised and terrified. She sits on the floor and repeats the same words like a broken recorder.
Destiny walked in front of the beauty and licked her face.
Seika turns white and faints.
Suddenly thrown into a situation where her face is licked by a lizard with whom she is not very good, her spirit can hardly endure it.
I tried to thank him in my pain but there was no voice.
Destiny was was staring at me, turned its hand towards a purse and approached the purse which was left on his desk and brought it.
This is……a drug which was sent as a tribute from Murus.
It holds the bottle with its lid open and brings it to my mouth. Does he wants to say drink it?
I managed to open my mouth and Destiny poured in the contents.
Pain disappears as if it was a lie. It has an immediate effect when swallowed.
When I try to move my limbs, there is no pain or discomfort. I flip over my clothes and see where I was beaten but there was no bruising.
No. Now is not the time to be impressed with the effectiveness of the drug. The Village! What happened to the village?
I see a smartphone lying in front of me while in hurry to go upstairs.
Did Destiny bring it from the second floor?
There were burning fences and bloody villagers on the screen of the smartphone.
