I Was the Heroine, and in the Sequel, Even Though I'm a Mob, All of My Stats Are Maxed Out - Chapter 52.2
In a daze, he watched his mother turn her back on him and ran away.
──He never made the mistake of thinking that she loved him.
Still, Alvin never thought that she hated him so much that she sacrificed him to the demon for her to escape.
He felt helplessly sad and scared that he choked and couldn’t speak as if he was being strangled.
His face and arms were covered in mud, but he desperately reached for his mother’s back as she moved away from him. There was also the figure of his nanny next to her.
Even his nanny, who had been so kind and whom he had trusted, turned away from him and pulled his mother’s arm. At that moment, Alvin realized that there was no one on his side in this world.
His vision was soon darkened by the demon’s shadow. Long, sharp silver claws glinted in front of his face. Blood dripped from its toes.
Alvin closed his eyes tightly in despair, thinking that he was going to die alone, but the awaited pain didn’t come.
He fearfully opened his eyes and, for some reason, the demon had passed by him, who was lying in front of it, and was heading for his mother and nanny.
“No, no! W-Why, I──argghh!”
──He had heard that intelligent demons avoided children who have few parts to eat and whose magical power was unstable.
An adult woman with no magical power would be the most enjoyable to feast on.
That was probably why the demon ignored him when he was presented right in front of it and headed for his mother.
“Kill him, not… me! Arghhh, it hurts! Help, someone save me──…!”
Blood rained down all over the area. It took him a few moments to realize that the lukewarm blood was his mother’s.
Alvin could hear the sound of a human being broken down, a gurgling sound.
He couldn’t move from that spot anymore and just stared at his mother as she died, screaming at the demon not to kill her and eat her.
Before long, when his mother and nanny were devoured and there were no traces left, the demon turned its attention back to him.
However, it suddenly looked away disinterestedly and headed toward other people.
A dry laugh overflowed from his mouth as he was left alone there. Everything was so ridiculous that he couldn’t help it.
He laughed at his mother, who died like that, and at himself, for trying to protect people like that and wishing to be loved by them.
“Your Highness, Alvin! You are safe──”
Eventually, the knights who heard the commotion came. They gasped when they see him covered in blood and the remains of what used to be a human being.
They must have known who it was from the shreds of her dress and the jewelry shining in the pool of blood. The gravity of the queen’s murder left everyone speechless.
In the midst of all this, Alvin stood up and smiled at them.
“Oh, everything is fine.”
For his mother, he was nothing more than food for demons and was unnecessary until the very end. There was no need to grieve over the death of such a human being.
The tears welling up in his eyes were also a mistake.
──Alvin vowed that he would never trust or expect anything from anyone ever again, rather than feel this way.
As soon as he regained consciousness, a sharp stabbing pain ran through his entire body. His abdomen in particular was burning hot.
Alvin remembered that he fought and defeated a demon at the place where he was transported, but he was hit by curse magic. He thought he was definitely dead, but apparently, he was still alive.
As he wondered why, still feeling a little groggy, he noticed drops of water falling down.
His body felt heavy, so he could only move his gaze. On top of him, he saw the Saintess, who was called Nina.
Her chestnut-colored eyes were overflowing with tears, and it seemed that these warm drops belonged to her.
“…Why… are you crying?”
His voice came out hoarse. It wasn’t like him to ask her such a question in the first place.
Eventually, Alvin also noticed that his hands, which he could barely feel, were firmly connected to hers.
“I’m really sorry… I took the liberty of….”
Alvin was frustrated because he couldn’t understand her words. He was also uncomfortable with their intertwined hands and was about to shake them off.
“No, not now! If you let go, you’ll die!”
“…. What do… you mean?”
The Saintess, who was desperately pleading to him, held his hand tightly and judging from her appearance, it didn’t seem like she was lying.
The magic circle on the ground, her tired appearance, and the sensation of warm, unfamiliar magic flowing through his body.
And the fact that he himself was still alive finally made him realize what was happening.
“──Are you… providing me with your magic power…?”
