The Misfit of Demon King Academy - Chapter 102.2
Humans live short lives. Over the course of the years, the name Arnos Voldigod would disappear and only Avos Dillheavia would remain.
Normally that wouldn’t completely work but the holy sword which severed my fate would have seen to that.
“I fused 6 of my origins with the seven elder demon emperors. Of course, it was with their consent and their memories were voluntarily wiped as well. 2000 years later they knew you’d come into contact with them and notice the fusion so they wiped their own memories since they cannot lie to you.” (Ray)
They did that to protect me from the human’s plan?
“That left me with my own original origin. I reincarnated many times and little by little I obtained bodies with more and more mazoku blood. This is my first time being a pure-blooded mazoku though.” (Ray)
The hero Kanon has reincarnated into a body that completely draws on my blood while I’m in an almost human body.
To completely inherit all his powers in a body that doesn’t have a drop of his old blood is impressive. He is indeed far more skilled at root magic than me.
“And this war is a mop-up of your 2000-year-old plan?” (Arnos)
“Human hatred won’t disappear. Demon King of tyranny? Humans? This war will continue until one side is destroyed. No matter how merciful you are you’ll have no choice but to keep stamping out the falling embers and I can’t take your life again……” (Ray)
Eleonor’s predictions were wrong. Despite being killed by humans he’s still a noble hero through and through.
“Therefore you’ll be killed instead? As the demon king of tyranny by the humans.” (Arnos)
“Will that stop it?” (Arnos)
“<Ask> may instil the hatred of the mazoku in its users but ultimately the source of that is Jerga-sensei’s origin. What sensei bore a grudge against above all else was the demon king. If the demon king falls then so too will the magic disappear. I truly believe that. Sensei wasn’t that stupid for it to remain.” (Ray)
The serious look Ray is giving me really reminds me of Kanon.
“This may not be the road I wanted to be on but I’m still a hero. As long as there are still people that call me a hero I will make up for their mistakes and make up for the mistakes of past heroes. You staked your life 2000 years ago and made this peace possible. It’s a truly wonderful world now. It’s almost unthinkable what it was like back when you were alive. Even now this world is getting better.” (Ray)
Unlike me, Ray has seen the changing world as he repeatedly reincarnates.
“Demon king Arnos.” (Ray)
Ray speaks like we spoke 2000 years ago.
“Humans are foolish but I still believe in humans. I want to show you the wonderfulness of humans and the true peace you craved.” (Ray)
“Hero Kanon.” (Arnos)
I too, speak like its 2000 years ago.
“There’s no reason for you to do that. You have fought enough. Are you going to continue sacrificing yourself for those boring humans?” (Arnos)
Ray slowly shakes his head.
“I still remember our promise that day. This is the peace you pursued, created and protected. Though I’m reluctant in this form I still want to fight but as your friend this time.” (Ray)
What do you mean by that? I can’t ask now though.
“It’s taken a long time and you’ve made some grand preparations but you must have been confused and anxious at times yet despite that, you carried on and made your plans come to fruition. Your thoughts these last 2000 years are not cheap enough to be swayed by my words I know that.” (Arnos)
I won’t tell him to stop.
Those words will be too light in the face of Rays will.
“This isn’t even a single shell necklace but a Mishens necklace.” (Arnos)
My explanation in the academy flashes through my mind.
2000 years ago in the early days of the war, most humans never came back from battle so they wished upon Mishens necklace to be bound together with their lover and be reborn together in another age.
The Mishens shellfish that lives in the Gairadeite lake was divided into two and made into two necklaces. One was given to the lover and the other was worn by themselves as they went to battle.
The Mishens shellfish live by drinking the holy water of the lake and were said to be the messengers of the gods. The two shells were said to guide the origins of the dead to each other.
The hero Kanon/Ray had feelings they couldn’t convey so they entrusted them to the necklace and said goodbye to their loved one.
“If you want this necklace back you’d better try with all your might.” (Arnos)
“I thought you’d say that.” (Ray)
Ray hangs his mask at his waist and draws a magic formation.
A divine light overflowed and turned into a holy sword. Evans Mana that was in the demons kings castle was summoned here.
This man also understands I can’t move him with words.
“Let me go so I can protect you.” (Ray)
The hero readies the spirit god sword.
I spread my arms and stand in front of him.
How many times have I fought this man? Still, this is the first time I’ve felt like this while fighting him.
“I won’t let you go so I can protect you.” (Arnos)
Authors note: And the truth becomes clear. There are still some unclear points but they will be revealed later.
