Is the Strongest in Another World a Hero? A Demon Lord? No! it’s a Fairy ~desu! - Chapter 122.2
“Whoa, there! Woops, nope, not there!”
But it never hit. The moment she is attacked, Aidle could see Hinomoto even if for only a very short moment to do [Event Recognition]. So, her idea was to prevent it in that tenth of a second world by using status adjustment.
And the situation only got worse for Hinomoto.
“…Okay, it’s over.”
Having pinpointed the range of Hinomoto’s presiding [Event Control], Aidle [Grasped] the space. The [Event Control Space] surrounding Hinomoto, who was about to slash her from behind, was deactivated, and her figure appeared.
“No way! You can do this too?”
“Can’t help it, I just can. And now I guess this is checkmate?”
“–!! …Haah, I didn’t expect to lose so easily.”
On her neck was the Aidle’s sword.
Watching Hinomoto’s method of attack, Aidle believed that she was using Event Recognition [Temporary] to remove her Existence, so that if she stopped only the surrounding Events, she would be invisible to Recognition in the space around her. Inevitably, the Actions in that space become invisible. Of course, it would be invisible to the Aidle in that space as well.
It was a way of fighting hidden in the [Event] of that space. However, as a [Dimension Fairy], it was only effective early in the battle until Aidle managed to recognize, or at least grasped that space. As a result, she was able to [Rewrite] the entire space, making it impossible for Hinomoto to use the skill. However, Aidle also had her share of burdens, and she frowned slightly from the headache which was a result of her ability.
“Hmmm, I guess it’s not the same as Arena. I was too busy trying to stop it. So, do you want to give up? I can take it off you now without any problems, you know?”
“You already know why I am actually wearing it, don’t you? And by being able to [Operate] the collar, you should know about that. It should never be removed. Not only will that destroy you, it will definitely destroy half of this continent.”
Hinomoto’s will remained unbreakable, and it was impossible for her to lose her uncontrollable will to fight and for her, removing the collar would be equivalent to killing her [Self]. Another factor was that Asahina was the only one who could create a collar with this property. Her Self would not be able to resist, whether her Will was bound or not by a different Collar.
However, Aidle would not allow that, regardless if Hinomoto wanted to.
“…Cielo asked me, you know…”
“She wants me to help you if I can because you have taken on something that should not be in this world, she wants you to laugh like Mika. You know this, don’t you? You can’t fool Cielo’s [Divine Eye] with ordinary [Concealment]. Even if it didn’t show up in your status, she would be able to feel that [Existence]. She’s been thinking about you… for a long time now, you know?”
At these words, Hinomoto somehow understood and let out a tired smile, as if she gave up.
“…I see. I’m not brave enough, so I’m going to make a wish. I don’t have the courage, so hopefully you can take my place and kill me… or rather, I can’t say “No” to this, right?”
“You don’t understand. You don’t know what it’s like to be a fairy. So let me tell you.”
Aidle slowly placed the Holy Sword on her collar. Hinomoto’s face twitched, and Aidle grinned.
“You see, fairies like happy endings.”
She moved her sword.
The collar, fell off.
Hinomoto’s body pulsates as if something were crawling up from the depths of her spirit, and she felt as if she were being violated.
“Ahhhh! …Giiihhh! Rr, rrun, runaway…”
