Is the Strongest in Another World a Hero? A Demon Lord? No! it’s a Fairy ~desu! - Chapter 71
Chapter 71 Day 1, I’ve Absolutely Decided not to Forgive
Right now, the beast-men’s march has come to a halt as we took a break on a riverside. Everyone got off the carriages and had lunch near the riverbank. However…… the air surrounding two people side by side near the bank was so heavy that even the people close by felt like they were going to choke.
I was envious of the two who were nervously trying to start a conversation with each other. After all, even if I tell them with all my heart『No, you idiot』…… they won’t probably listen before they settle this……
I was playing Othello with Cielo before, but Forna came when we arrived at the resting spot. Saying 「I wanted to talk to the Miko」 when she came, I didn’t mind it because I know that she won’t cause any harm.
Cielo also accepted her request……
「Forna-sama……Is it fine if I address you that way?」
「……Hai. Is it also fine if I call you Cielo-sama?」
The Mofumofu Princess of a ruined country that was destroyed because of a Miko’s prophecy. An glamorous young Miko who ran away, cursed and still being chased by the hero that cursed her. The common thing about the two of them right now is that they are becoming too tense. Yosh! Let’s have them relax for a bit.
「Eiya. Why is Aidle in fairy form?」
After appearing between the two in fairy form, the tension between the two started to dissipate. Forna opened her palm putting it forward and I landed on top of it, seating myself. It’s the first time for Cielo to see me like this. Oh right, Arena also came. She landed on Cielo’s palm when she opened it and set it forward the same way Forna did.
It’s time to stir up this atmosphere.
「You know, I can’t stand looking at beautiful girls showing gloomy looks while staring at each other. That’s why I want the both of you to smile. Isn’t that right, Arena?」
「Ah, Umm, are you a Fairy-sama too?」
「I don’t want formalities!! The same with Forna too!! Let’s make it be more relaxed!!」
「Eh, Ehhh, but「Ok?」…… Hiyai(*TL: She fumbled)」
In the presence of Fairies, status, power, fame is worthless. Things that happened in the past should be left in the past and move on. Let’s make sure that everyone will be free to talk about whatever they to say to each other.
「And so, is there anything you want to say, Forna, Cielo?」
「Ah. Un.……Umm, Cielo?」
「About us, do you know that we don’t despise you?」
Cielo looked surprised as she stared at Forna’s face. What she saw was a beautiful smile. She was only able to do this because of the courage that she gathered inside her, and because of me, who is sitting on her hand.
「Indeed, it was because of the prophecy that our country Ladaria was destroyed by the Heroes. But it was also because of that prophecy that the damage we have inflicted was only minimal and was quickly suppressed. I was thinking that if it was not immediately prevented, more and more damage have occurred, not only to our people but even to other countries. And that would probably gain more hatred from the humans all over the world. That’s why we are not blaming you for our demise. There is no need to do so.」
Probably not wanting to accept her straightforwardness, Cielo, in a panic, tried to find faults to blame her own for doing the prophecy and deny Forna’s acceptance.
「But… You know…… It was because of me that your brethren have to be enslaved all over the world……」
「We know that it wasn’t your fault and that the Heroes are to be blamed, right? Also, even though we do hate the heroes, we also don’t hate them to the point of wanting to kill them, like that person who is escorting you. If possible, I also want to get along with her. I would be happy enough if we can accept each other, you know?」
Hearing their conversation, the Hero could do nothing but shiver. I guess, I could make her talk about it and listen to her side later. What is it that made you greatly admire Cielo? Is it her strength? Iya, I am not included in that, right?
But still, no matter how much Forna offered her hand for Cielo to accept…… she was rejected.
「……I can’t accept it…because……it was because of me!! The attack of the Heroes was my fault!!! Because of my prophecy, a Demon Lord was born in Ladaria and I wasn’t able to prevent it!!!」
Eh, you made a prophecy and a Demon Lord was born? ……Ahh, now I got it. If the skill is activated and you see the future, then you will definitely be able to know about what will happen in the future. I wonder if a point where a Demon Lord would be born will be fixed in the timeline in that case.
「The Heroes told me……『A Miko could make a random prophecy that the goddess showed her which could thus give birth to a Demon Lord』. When I realized what that meant, I understood that a Miko’s position is not someone who predicts the birth of a demon lord…… But a trigger that would give birth to one instead… That’s why, I don’t have the qualifications to be friends with anyone……」
There is probably no one who knew about this. It is a top secret information that only Heroes, the Miko, and the people that on their level of authority would know. Cielo is such a nice girl. But she was only used in order to create a breakdown on the foundations of the world for their own benefits. Also the fact that God didn’t even care about it or prevented it is also a painful fact for her.
「Is that really the true? Aren’t you just making this up so I won’t have the opportunity to forgive you? Because, if what you are telling me is really the truth, then can you show me some proof?」
「Th, that is……」
「Besides, the Heroes I know of are different from the current ones. I have read a few history books about their brave tales, so it’s not like every one of them was like that, right? It seems like the current heroes didn’t live like the ones from before, but there were some of them in the past who did their best in helping all nations」
It sounded like a story based on old Japanese tales.There are also tales about some people who were summoned along with their tanks in the past. If you have been summoned in the right era, then that era would greatly benefit from you too.
「Besides, Cielo did such things because Cielo believed that it was the right thing to do. I will never forgive those who forced you to do such things, even if they are Heroes. Therefore, there is no need for me to believe what you said, since you are only a victim of such things」
「I really wanted to. To be your friend」
「………I too…*gusu…wanted to……*gusu… is it really okay?」
I returned to my human form and hugged everyone. Her sapphire colored eyes were so beautiful, and even the tears that fell from it were like jewels…… from now on, I want her to be good friends with Forna. And because of that, I also have to save La Veil Radd and make them have an alliance. Another mission was added to my to-do list!!
「Well, no matter what it is, all I have to do is blow them away. If all of those things are true, then I will even include God on my list of targets I need to crush, and if it’s not, then I’ll just smash the Heroes」
「「It’s not that easy!?」」
「You have to give it up little girls. That’s just the usual reasoning that runs through my mind」
I don’t care. Really, whoever they are, I don’t care. God? Heroes? Hah!! I don’t care who they are, and I will definitely make them apologize. I already have a really good reason to do this. Ah, my instincts are overacting again. For them to make such cute girls suffer and cry, I will be the justice of love that will bring punishment upon them.
「First, Cielo! Don’t worry about it anymore! You don’t have to talk about such painful things anymore!! Don’t hold back!! You don’t have to cry anymore because I’ll take all of your sadness and carry for you!!! Your reply!!」
「Yup, very cute! Next, Forna! When your country is ready, be sure to help with everything you’ve got!!」
「Yup beast-ears are the best!! And finally, Arena………It’s Party Time!!」
A loud party music began playing after the flick of a finger. The mood was set up.
「Everyone, raise yourselves!!!! For all the beast-eared people, listen to my new soooooーーーーーーーーng!!」
Fairy Magic was used to make it possible for all the beast-people hear my song. I then created a stage and changed all the children’s clothes into a beautiful Yukata with Fairy Magic～Nn～♪
「What, where did all that come from!? And why are we dancing!?!?」
「What, did everyone hear the whole story!?」
「You don’t have to say anything anymore～～」
The dance party lasted until the break ended.
Night time. I decided call Cielo out… I’ll leave Forna and Arena for the time being. Eh? Did you already become so attached to me enough that you feel sad because I’m leaving you behind? I will be with you again in a bit so please endure it for now.
I went to the carriage where Cielo was riding.
「Yes, I will be removing Cielo’s curse for now」
「Eh……Can…you really do that?」
「I can do it. I will definitely be able to do it because we are friends」
「That, that’s not really a clear answer about how you are able to do it though～…」
Let’s see, the image will be, to take something like a black lump from inside her, yes, then make it disappear. Ok, now activate.
……Oh, an image of the person who did this was shown quite clearly in my mind.
「Etto, how is it. Eh, Aidle is so hot! Are you okay!?」
Uwah, the face of a beautiful girl is right in front of me……close. Withstand it. For the cute girl that is worried in front of me, endure, endure, endure…… good, the heat has now subsided.
「It’s alright now. See for yourself. Can you check your status?」
「Ha, hai…………… Eh, it really……disappeared」
「That’s done. Well then, see you again tomorrow.」
Uwah. I received a wonderful hug from behind. It was from a crying girl. I was patting her head to soothe her. As she looked up to me with her crying face, her tears were shining in the moonlight. If I was a man, I might have ended up devouring her right at that moment.
「You’re welcome, Cielo… From now on too, please take care of me, okay?」
Mika who was watching us felt relieved. For Cielo to finally show a happy face. Though she knows that she is strong, she still felt quite helpless. Not wanting to disturb the atmosphere, she tried to leave them behind.
Was she thinking of becoming something like a dark knight and tried to disappear in the shadows? 「Caught you」「Hiya!?」
「I won’t let you escape, you know?」
「Uwa, wait, wait, waaaaaaiiiit!!!」
Sorry, but you will never escape from a fairy’s grasp.
「It’s okay. A Hero who would properly answer good questions is a good Hero. Ufufufu♪」
「Scary, scary, if won’t answer, I will definitely be killed!! Okay, I will talk, so please don’t kill me!!」
「I won’t kill you. At worst, I might only throw you inside an orc’s nest」
「Please spare me!?」
Mika-chan was then forced to talk about many things, forcefully indeed.[ED: And another Hero falls to Aidle :)]
