Summoned by a Goddess
Chapter 4 Part 4
…Eisuke woke up from his sleep.
“Ouch! What did I…!?”
“Please don’t move yet.”
A soft but decisive tone of voice commanded Eisuke calmly. His whole body was filled with a dull ache and great fatigue, so much so that he couldn’t even lift his head. With just a glance, Eisuke checked his condition.
…It was Marielle who had her hand on his chest.
A pale, warm light glowed from her palm. …It was healing magic. In concentric circles around the area touched by her palm, the pain eased. However, the slow and gentle healing process made Eisuke feel impatient.
“Hurry, we have to…!”
A bullet of energy flew over Marielle’s head, who was smiling softly. Eisuke went into a fit of rage… at that moment.
A figure appeared to protect Marielle and deflected the trajectory of the energy bullet with a series of thrusts with a thin sword. The energy bullets avoided Marielle and landed in the surrounding area. Her flaxen hair fluttered.
“I’m sorry about earlier, Eisuke.”
Rukino’s thin lips twisted into a smile and she bent down towards Eisuke. Finally, his whole body recovered enough to stand up. …Almost at the same time he stood up….
A battle cry was heard.
…Swords sparked, arrows flew, and knights roared.
“The Imperial Knights…?”
Eisuke was taken by surprise. For the few minutes he was on the ground, it was the Imperial Knights, whose memories had been altered, who fought to buy time.
“Princess Marielle has returned, we can no longer allow the Heroes to do as they please!”
“Until that boy returns, we will show our pride!”
The brave and fierce shouts shook the atmosphere and brought the knights onto the battlefield in high spirits. They evaded, dodged and desperately survived the Demon King’s fierce attack.
“How did this happen…?!”
“We brought them back.”
“We helped too, you know? After all, we’re modern high school girls too.”
It was Serika, with Yui in her arms, who came to see the stunned Eisuke. In their hands, each held a smartphone. These women, like Eisuke, had undone the Imperial Knights’ manipulation.
Marielle shook Eisuke’s hand with her own.
“…I believe you will all be victorious, Mister Eisuke. Because you believed in me with all your heart.” Marielle closed her eyes and went over Eisuke’s words again. “…So I want to answer back. Not only do I believe in your victory, but I promise you that it will be so. Because I am… I am the reincarnation of the Goddess…”
Rukino wrapped Eisuke’s hand over Marielle’s hand.
Yui and Serika also wrapped their hands from both sides.
…Then Marielle’s body began to glow white. Dazzling rays of light shone around her. Her blonde hair waved as if alive, and her dress danced in the windless air.
With that smile Eisuke protected, she gained strength. Holding his thick, warm hand.
…The warmth of her palms naturally ignited the flames of fighting spirit in Eisuke’s chest.
…Yes, that’s right. Eisuke closed his eyes silently and understood.
Surely strength was not something that could be expressed through fists alone. What was truly “strength” was something that connected between people and grew like the warmth he felt in his hands now. Strength was not something that existed only for oneself. It was for everyone who believed in you and put their hopes in you.
It was a “light” like that of the sun.
…A seven-colored light exploded.
The light enveloped Eisuke. It was the most fantastic and beautiful light than any other. It pierced the heavens and space, and fell to earth.
Everyone was astonished by the light. Even Kaito, the Demon King, was blinded by it. At the same time, it split in two.
…The light appeared in front of the Demon King’s eyes.
The Demon King’s eyes opened.
“Sorry for the wait, let’s continue where we left off…”
Kaito was completely perplexed. The light that appeared in front of his eyes was… Eisuke Tsurugi. His eyes glowed with a golden color, and his figure was surrounded by a pale white light. Eisuke extended his hand towards him and folded his fingers inward. It was a fearless and arrogant provocation to the Demon King. In other words… he was looking for a fight.
“Come on, great Hero who has saved the world. Let’s fight with all our might.”
Kaito’s instinctive astonishment at Eisuke, now with a golden aura, caused him to tremble and shudder. Then he switched his attack target to him and unleashed it all at once.
Energy bullets, terrifying blades, hellfire, red lightning, chaotic shockwaves… the Demon King’s attacks landed all over Eisuke’s body like a raging wave. The scene of destruction, as if an unprecedented natural disaster had been wreaked on the place, painted Eisuke’s dazzling light into darkness.
…Or at least, that’s what he thought…
All traces of the attacks from before exploded without a trace… again the sun was visible.
The intense light, like a prominence painting over the darkness, was nothing more than the glow from the impact of the demon king’s tremendous onslaught, which was completely extinguished when Eisuke made a slight movement of his arm.
Eisuke, who had the sun on his body, silently laughed at the astonished Kaito. He was furious. He could not accept the existence of a being who had obtained power even more absurd than his own, who had become a Demon King.
Kaito tensed his muscles and spread his arms wide.
‘You’re a sneakin’ wreeeeeeeeeetch!!’
The Demon King delivered a blow with a force that surpassed Eisuke’s. A mighty blow, which could shatter even mountain ranges, slammed into Eisuke….
A roar. An impact. A gust of wind. An explosive blast. Slaughter. There was every symbol of destruction exploding…
…And… nothing happened.
Eisuke had taken the Demon King’s strikes… with the finger of one hand.
‘How can it be possible…………!?’
“It’s thanks to you, great Hero. You have made me strong.” Eisuke spoke. The tone of his voice contained no anger or hatred. It was a proud voice, clear and refreshing. “This power is the result of everything I have encountered up to this point. My own efforts, my past memories, the thoughts of all the people who have been involved with me… everything is combined in this power! And now I’m going to give you the chance to feel it…!” Eisuke’s right arm became enveloped in light, as if responding to his words. He raised his arm above his head.
…A pillar of light pierced the heavens.
The light of hope spilled over the land, cutting through the chaos and despair caused by the Hero turned Demon King. Eisuke converged all that light into his arm.
An aurora. The light flickered and exploded.
Eisuke’s fist no longer struck a blow. It was more like an explosion or the impact of a meteorite. The explosion and impact blew away all the surrounding structures without a trace, and even the surrounding knights flew away, unable to stand. Eisuke’s golden blow, which had been sent into the ground to destroy the Demon King, was, so to speak, the hammer of God’s judgment.
They all covered their eyes with their arms. A tremendous roar deprived them of listening properly any longer. When the light faded, they regained their senses, and the first thing they saw…
“…Hahaha, you weren’t so good if you fell in one fell swoop, were you?” Looking at Kaito’s unconscious human body and smiling, was the heroic figure of Eisuke Tsurugi.
“H-He did it!”
One of the knights blurted out those words. With a metallic clang, his sword fell to the ground. That was the beginning of a chain.
“He did iiiiiiit!”
“To the Demon King…! He has defeated the Hero…!”
“With this, the Imperial Capital will be restored!”
A loud cheer filled the air. The knights clapped their hands, sang triumphant songs in high spirits, and clapped their hands in encouragement to each other. Countless cheers filled everyone’s eardrums.
Marielle and the others ran to Eisuke. Marielle jumped towards Eisuke’s chest with great momentum.
Eisuke was unable to catch her and was pushed to the ground. It was a bit of déjà vu for him. Marielle was a bit perplexed.
“Are you okay?!”
“H-How do you even think of doing that…. Ouch, it was hard this time. I couldn’t move another millimeter.”
The exhausted Eisuke answered Marielle, still on his chest. Marielle hugged him, pressing him still on the ground.
“Thank you so much, Mister Eisuke.”
Marielle murmured and looked up. Her eyes watered as she said those words… she smiled brightly like the sun, as if she loved him with all her heart.
“You are… the best of the “heroes” for me…!”
“…Come on, that tickles!” Eisuke laughed and told her bluntly. …Holding the hem of his denim jacket, he said his usual line. “I’m just… I’m just a high school boy who got too strong.”
“…And I wonder if there really is another high school student this ridiculous?”
Serika and Yui did their usual joking punch line.
