Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 124.1
“…I’m going to join them.”
Rockwell muttered, gripping his sword, and everyone, including Crown Prince Ervan, gulped and looked at him in astonishment.
The rebellion of the Second Order, even if only a part of it, and the attack of the assassins’ guild commissioned by the aristocratic faction. Even in such a critical situation, an adventurer girl requested by Princess Elena appeared to the rescue and distracted the attackers’ gaze from the Crown Princes.
As a member of a family that had produced many commanders of knighthoods, he must have something on his mind. However, even though Rockwell’s swordsmanship was excellent, it was only from a student’s point of view, and if he made a poor move, he might draw attention to him. Even so, as a knight and a man, Rockwell couldn’t “accept” the idea of continuing to hide behind the back of a young, attractive maiden.
“Then I will go with you. I may not be able to match you with a sword, but I can be of some use with magic.”
Standing next to his friend who was about to go into battle, Mikhail turned to Rockwell with a smile, albeit a brave one.
Mikhail and Rockwell’s thoughts point in the same direction, but slightly different.
Rockwell looked at the girl with peach blonde hair and saw in her the strength that he had longed for as a knight sealed in his heart as a senior nobleman, and he wanted to stand next to her and fight with her like a boy yearning to be a brave warrior.
But it was not only because he was proud to be a man, but also because his longing was changing into a different kind of “feeling”.
Mikhail was intrigued by a young adventurer girl he met a few years ago, who was different from the young ladies who flocked around him.
Mikhail felt pity for the girl who continued to fight in solitude. He understood that this was a conceit from his privileged position as an aristocrat. Even so, Mikhail wanted to support her.
Even if the girl didn’t want it… he didn’t know herself whether this desire was a wish to support her like a family member or a different one. But it was no longer going to be possible for Mikhail to hide behind her back, the way he had done with Rockwell.
“What are you two talking about! How can you expect to join that dangerous battle? Stop this nonsense. Remember what you are supposed to do!”
Crown Prince Ervan stopped them as they were about to go to battle, causing Mikhail and Rockwell to exchange glances for a moment.
He had a good point. What could they do in a battlefield where a girl, one of the top adventurers of the “Rainbow Sword,” was risking a life or death battle, given that they were only slightly better than student-level in terms of ability? If they were careless, they would end up getting in the way of the girl’s battle.
“…Forgive us, Your Highness. We can no longer sit back and watch.”
“It is the responsibility of the higher nobility to quell the rebellion. Even if we ended up hurt, she is not to blame in any way for coming to rescue us.”
Ervan was speechless at Rockwell and Mikhail’s determination.
Despite his words of admonishment, Ervan was frightened. The girl who continued to kill others as if she did not know the weight of life was the most incomprehensible existence to Ervan, who had grown up without the proper resolve despite being royalty.
Carla, his fiancée, who had appeared before he knew it, also began to fight the giant black beast, killing friend and foe alike, a scene that looked like hell on earth.
Ervan felt as if they had seen through his fear, and he felt a “distance” that he had never felt before between his two friends who were trying to step forward as noblemen and men, and he turned his dark gaze at the girl with peach blonde hair who was fighting in the distance, which was the cause of the distance.
There was another voice that stopped them. The girl, still very young, puts her own hand on the dejected Ervan’s and directs her sad eyes at Mikhail and Rockwell.
“There is no need for you two to do such a dangerous thing!” We are human beings. Please value our lives more than your nobles’ duty or anything else! You have more important things to do. Leave the dangerous things to those dangerous people.”
Mikhail shook his head quietly at the girl – Alicia’s words, and walked to the battlefield with Rockwell, who tapped him lightly on the shoulder.
Ervan muttered sadly the names of his friends who were leaving him, and Alicia gently hugged his head to her chest, and Ervan clung to her thin body as if clinging to the kindness of such a girl.
“Yes, El-sama, I am at your side.”
Alicia looked at the backs of the two boys as she stroked Ervan’s head, who clutched at her chest as if she were a child, with a compassionate expression.
(…What did I do wrong?)
She used the “heroine” line she got from the magic stone, but they didn’t stop.
The information was already slightly different from reality. The existence of the heroine had disappeared from the story before she knew it. Although she was aware that there would be differences in the situation since the real heroine was not there, she felt that there were clear differences in the words and actions of the two targets, and she felt that further scrutiny of the information was necessary.
The unnamed girl who called herself “Alicia” suddenly twisted her face in a grimace and looked at the girl with peach blonde hair and the girl with long black hair in the distance.
(Those two…they’re in my way…)
When and where did she appear from, I wondered, but that Carla and Nero were fighting while destroying the forest.
That power… was that the power of the [Gift]? Even my “eyes” could not see the upper limit of her magical power. But I felt as if the light of her life was fading away at a frightening speed.
The fire of hell that burned fiercely as it feeds on life – was that the power you wanted, Carla?
Flying around with a burst of magic power, Carla was more than evenly matched with Nero, who was ranked also on the same power level as a Rank 5. No, if it were only about instantaneous destructive power, Carla would be as powerful as Rank 6.
For a Coeurl, who was resistant to slash and stab, offensive magic was their weakness. However, a Coeurl also had the ability to disrupt magic. They were both powerful, and leaving them alone would not be a problem, and their compatibility would let them go at it for a while, and neither of them would be in immediate danger.
The whole area was engulfed in flames from the stray bullets that Carla was shooting at random. That was why I chose this place to settle the score with Gilgan.
Caught in the stray bullet, Gilgan turned his angry eyes and machete on me. As one would expect from a guild master, even with his left arm burned off, his overall power only dropped a little, and his visible combat ability hardly dropped at all.
But that was okay. It was I who was going to defeat you. If he died from a stray bullet like this, there would be no point in calling him all the way here.
Gilgan spit on the ground and lowered his machete, as I held up my knife and dagger in silence.
