I Was the Heroine, and in the Sequel, Even Though I'm a Mob, All of My Stats Are Maxed Out - Chapter 53
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
The End of the World is With You 3
The Saintess answered positively to his question.
She hadn’t yet learned about how to break curse magic, so she must have been supplying him with her own magical power to purify the curse.
As a result, Alvin could recover until he regained consciousness.
After a few moments of silence, these words spilled out of his mouth.
──He didn’t understand. There was no way he could.
“Why did you do that?”
The Saintess in front of him wasn’t a fool. Alvin knew that because Owen and the others frequently talked about her.
She must have also understood how dangerous it was to supply him with magic power in this situation.
“… You know that if I die, you’ll die too, don’t you?”
He could have died right away due to injuries all over his body and a strong curse.
The moment Alvin lost consciousness, he was clearly aware of the possibility of his “death.”
He couldn’t understand why she would risk her life to save him. And yet, she nodded her head as if it was nothing.
“…. Then, why?”
Again, the same question came out of his mouth.
──Up until now, there had been many opportunities for rewards. A saintess had value just by existing; as long as she wished for something, their country would prepare anything.
Still, he knew she wanted nothing. He knew that she didn’t save him to gain wealth.
“Please don’t get involved with me.”
Most importantly, he had been cold-hearted toward her until now. They hardly ever had a conversation.
That’s why he couldn’t understand why she would put her life on the line for someone who had treated her so coldly.
“Kill him, not me…!”
──Even those who were blood-related to him would easily abandon him.
“I haven’t gotten to know Alvin-sama yet.”
Eventually, she gave a smile. What a silly reason, Alvin was dumbfounded.
But for her, that’s really all there was to it.
“… Huff, huff….”
Under the influence of the massive supply of magic and his curse, she was clearly out of breath, and it was apparent that she was nearing her limit.
Still, she tried desperately to smile. Alvin’s heart began to beat faster and faster, not understanding what was happening.
“…. Are you going to continue this and die with me?”
“I don’t want to die yet. There are still many things I want to do… I want to live.”
Even though he had regained consciousness, the curse was still deeply rooted in his body. Alvin was sure she knew that there was a possibility it could get worse again and possibly kill her.
“But if we die, we’ll die together.”
She suddenly looked up at him, clasped his hand, and continued.
“I will never, ever abandon you, Alvin-sama.”
The moment she told him this, he really wanted to cry.
Her smile was so dazzling, and her hand was so warm. Alvin felt helplessly overjoyed.
Those were the words he had always wanted to hear.
At the same time, he finally realized from her words that she had just seen his past.
He had heard that sharing their magic sometimes involved sharing memories and also emotions.
“Because you feel sorry for me?”
“I would be lying if I said I didn’t feel that way. But it’s not only because of that.”
──Ever since the day his mother died, Alvin had lived his life thinking that he could die at any moment.
Even when he challenged the dying demon in front of him by himself, it was a gamble whether he could defeat it or not.
Alvin knew that he didn’t have to defeat it alone at that moment. Still, he drew his sword without hesitation.
He realized now that he probably wanted a “legitimate reason” to die.
That was why it would have been better if he had let go of this hand that was tied to him and died right away.
It was the last thing he wanted to do, to have his life saved by someone else in this way.
“So, let’s do our best together.”
Alvin was sure she would have done the same thing even if that person wasn’t him. Of course, he knew he was not “special.”
Still, he didn’t want to let go of her warm hand. He wanted to know more about her.
He knew nothing about her except her name.
But he hoped that Nina wouldn’t betray him, that she was someone who would die with him.
“…. You… won’t leave me?”
His voice and hands trembled.
“Will you really die with me?”
“Yes, I promise.”
Her words and smile made his heart tighten.
Alvin was aware that he was being too selfish and absurd, considering what he had done to her.
“…. Thank… you.”
Still, he thought it would be nice if he could live a little longer, get to know her, and someday die with her.
