I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 387
9-21. Don’t help (them).
She had two small horns on her head and was wearing a much darker outfit.
She was dark-skinned from the beginning, and her clothes did not suit her very well.
I couldn’t tell which part of her was skin and which part was clothing at first glance.
The only thing that anyone could easily understand was the position of her face, since she was wearing a white scarf around her neck.
She is holding a black spear that looks like a giant bee stinger, and she has one hand dangling at the moment.
Apparently, her hand is numb from the Houen’s counterattack.
I have never seen much of his spear technique, but from the looks of it, he seems to be very skilled.
The reason why Houen doesn’t use flames is probably to keep a low profile.
But that would not allow him to fly.
The devil doesn’t have wings, but I guess he’s still just putting them away.
The devil is wielding a spear and talking to us.
“You have already met with him, haven’t you? Didn’t you met with Lurimkos-sama recently? You heard what she said, didn’t you?”
“Ah, the Amahana reincarnation is having his memory erased, right ……? What about you? The reincarnation of Awase and the reincarnation of Hiwa.”
Saying so, the devil peeked over here.
Although those who had met with Lurimkos did not hold up their weapons, the others seemed to be revealing their wariness and were now waiting for the right moment to strike.
If things continue as they were, it would turn into a battle.
I headed toward the devil with slow steps.
Roze and Yurie tried to stop me, but I stopped them with my hands.
When I reached the spot next to Houen, I asked her.
“We know that you devils are not our enemies.”
The demon thrusts her spear into the ground and takes no action.
“Then, don’t bother us any more. It’s really rare for me to speak so seriously and quietly, you know? Besides,……, I don’t want to fight.”
“You can not tell us the purpose, right? Then …… Why did you use Reizen?”
At these words, Houen tilted his head.
Neither do I understand it.
“What do you mean?”
“It means exactly what it means. That boy is dangerous.”
“……, Could the phrase …… ‘insurance’ possibly be a ridiculously roundabout way of explaining the reason?”
She didn’t answer the question.
I guess they can’t answer it.
But we can take that as an affirmation.
“I’m really sorry. Please don’t help the reincarnation of Urushima.”
“…… That’s a difficult subject to agree with.”
“Then …… don’t help the prince yet. This is one thing I won’t give up on.”
“You want to start a war. But humans don’t like that. There must be another way. There has to be.”
“There isn’t. …… another way …….”
The Devil shuddered.
As if she was lamenting her own inability to do anything about it.
I know these guys have their own agenda to do no matter what,
But we don’t have any choice but to abandon Reizen and Prince Kreis.
Even if we did, we would not choose it.
I don’t know how many people will die.
Knowing that, we can’t leave it alone.
“If …… you say you can’t do it, then …….”
The devil gripped the spear with a firm grip.
The spear, which had been deeply embedded deep in the ground, was easily pulled out and the tip pointed toward us.
“There is nothing else to do but to stop it with all my might.”
The devil’s killing intent flashed at us with a terrifying expression on her face.
That alone told us that she was a great fighter.
As if she had set up a position behind her back, she is resolved to do so.
Judging from the fact that she mentioned the names of Hiwa, Amaka, Awase, and Urushima, she must have been close to them.
She said we are their reincarnation, but we are completely different from them.
And yet, she says she doesn’t want to fight.
I wondered for a moment if this was a desperate attempt, or if it was just an act.
For a moment I was lost, but then I saw the murderous intent that she was emitting, and I understood that she had no choice but to fight in this way out of sheer desperation.
I understand that the devil has a non-negotiable point in this entire case.
But you are not the only ones.
“Who wouldn’t be angry when one of their buddies gets taken advantage of?”
“……Really, you’re a lot like …… Hiwa.”
In that instant, the devil disappeared from the scene.
When I was aware of this, the spear was right in front of me.
Houen that was next to me moved and repelled that attack.
The sharpest expression I have ever seen on his face.
Blood vessels were showing on his forehead.
“I don’t understand your point at all, ……. But I agree with what Ouren said. We are angry. The reason why this plan will fail is because you used our friend Reizen!”
“You are just like Amahana! Only not as smart!”
“Is zat so!”
The devil thrusts out her spear.
Houen avoided it by a hair’s breadth and spun once, aiming at the opponent’s face with the spear carrying some centrifugal force.
She quickly crouched down to avoid it, but at that moment, Houen stepped in and caught the devil in the face with another fist.
The devil was thrown back by the merciless blow.
Hougen chased after her, but as one would expect, she could not stay on being beaten.
She immediately readied her spear to block the attack.
Seizing the moment when Houen draws his spear, she lifts the pike from the bottom to the top and precisely catches Houen in the jaw.
Thanks to the way his body was pulled back, he didn’t take much damage.
But he felt slightly dizzy.
Shaking his face, he awakened his consciousness, grabbed the spear that was diving toward him, and pulled it back.
At that moment, however, the spear was yanked away.
He thought it was a bad idea and let go of his hand, but the blade, which was like a hook, wounded Houen’s arm.
“When did you-…. I don’t care at this point anymore.”
“I’m not going to die. ……!”
“Ouren! Conversation is pointless now! Go!”
I nodded at his words and took the lead again.
Maria and Yurie followed me.
“”Can you explain this to me!!””
“You think I can at this time?!!”
They wouldn’t believe me if I explained it to them now!
We’ve got a lot going on and I’m already about to lose my head!
Don’t put any more pressure on me!
For now, I want us to work toward the goal of rescuing Reizen and Prince Kreis.
I know I’m breaking the promise to Lurimkos, but I didn’t make any guarantees.
“…… at this point, I’m not sure if saving those two will avert the war.”
The fact that Prince Kreis has already been kidnapped is probably spreading to the Kingdom of Salettana.
It’s the Vulpan Kingdom that has been picking fights with them, and we can’t complain if they attack them. ……
We’re not going to be able to stop the war on our own, that’s for sure.
I hope the …… big guys will decide that.
I have no such power.
……I just don’t know if I can ignore it like a mere stranger….
Seriously, …… I don’t know.
I don’t know what’s the right thing to do.
