The Misfit of Demon King Academy - Chapter 74.1
Eleonor suddenly bows her head in apology.
“What for?” (Arnos)
A questioning look appeared on her face.
“Eh? Isn’t the name of the demon king of tyranny something that shouldn’t be said out loud?”
She’s on about that. It seems they do have information about the mazoku even though we haven’t had any official exchanges.
Who found that information out and for what reason?
“Errm, well, you don’t like other people speaking his name out, right?” (Eleonor)
“I don’t care.” (Arnos)
Eleonor looks at Sasha.
“I’m not bothered either but it’s probably best if you don’t say it out loud when we start the exchange. If you rile the royals up it will become a pain.” (Sasha)
Eleonor exhaled in relief.
“I’m glad both of you aren’t bothered. I was told to never say it out loud as it would cause a big problem. What if a mazoku says it though? Is that okay?” (Eleonor)
“Well, sort of.” (Sasha)
It seems she has quite a loose character since she easily came out and said it despite being warned.
“Anyway, I’m sorry for being careless.” (Eleonor)
Eleonor sticks her tongue out slightly at her failure.
“Ah, hang on a sec.” Eleonor stops suddenly “We’ve passed it. Sorry, this is where you want to go.”
Turning around Elenor walks back a bit and opens a door we’ve just passed.
Inside is a well ventilated circular atrium. You can see stairs in various places leading upwards to the top floor and as far as the eye can see are bookshelves filled to the brim with books.
“This is the magic library that the hero academy is proud of. Books on magic are collected from all over Azeshion. The only lore you cant find here is regarding Deiruheido and other countries.” (Eleonor)
As soon as Eleonor finished talking she walked over to a certain shelf.
“Lore on the heroes should be somewhere around here. Which hero are you interested in?” (Eleonor)
“Wow! The hero Kanon is even popular in Deiruheido!” (Eleonor)
She looks happy though she’s being serious and has stopped playing around.
“Is it because he beat the demon king of tyranny?” (Eleonor)
At her words, Sasha gave her a sharp gaze.
“Aah……..so..sorry. Please forget I said that……..” (Eleonor)
Eleonor seems quite apologetic.
“What do you mean? When did the hero Kanon beat the demon king of tyranny?” (Sasha)
Sasha moves closer to Eleonor step by step.
In the past, I’m sure her <demon eyes of ruin> would have appeared by now.
“I’m not asking if you’re sorry, I’m asking what you meant. Is the lore here that the hero Kanon beat the demon king of tyranny?” (Sasha)
Elenor nods while still looking apologetic.
“Who made the wall?” (Sasha)
“…….Errm, what wall?” (Eleanor)
“<Beno Ieven>. The wall that dived the world into four.” (Sasha)
“Do you mean the Four Great Sages Barrier <Aru Ent>?” (Eleonor)
Sasha’s face takes on a dubious expression.
“<Aru Ent>?……….” (Sasha)
“It’s the barrier the hero Kanon created to protect the humans, spirits and gods from the mazoku counterattack after killing the demon king of tyranny.” (Eleonor)
“Stop screwing around” (Sasha)
Speaking in a low angry voice, Sasha glares at Eleonor.
Fumu. This is troublesome.
I lightly put my hand on Sasha’s head to calm her down.
“Wha…..wait…..Arnos…….hand. What are you doing suddenly?” (Sasha)
“Don’t get angry Sasha. This is hardly surprising.” (Arnos)
Sasha looks the other way sulking slightly.
“……But it was the wall you made using your own life…..” (Sasha)
Sasha muttered it so low only I could hear it.
“I’m happy about your feelings but humans are creatures that modify history whenever it’s convenient for them. If you get serious about each and every little thing your body won’t last.” (Arnos)
“…..If you’re fine with it then so am I……. Your hand…..let go…….” (Sasha)
I let go like asked and Sasha lets out a little “Aah”.
I look to see what’s wrong.
“…..It’s nothing…..” (Sasha)
Sasha looks down
“I’m sorry.” (Eleonor)
Eleonor apologised again.
“Was that another thing you weren’t supposed to speak about?” (Arnos)
“How is the history of that event told in Deiruheido?” (Eleonor)
“The demon king of tyranny gathered the hero, the great spirit and the god of creation in Deruzogedo where they combined their powers to create the wall and divide the world into four. Unable to withstand the enormous magic power the demon king lost his body and said he would reincarnate two thousand years in the future which is this era.” (Arnos)
Eleonor listens to my explanation with a blank look on her face.
“It doesn’t matter if you don’t believe it. Since the moment you were born you’ve been taught that the hero beat the demon king after all.” (Arnos)
Eleonor nods at my words while still looking puzzled.
“Don’t be fooled Eleonor.”
A cold, sharp voice calls out.
Looking over at a desk I saw a man with an open book wearing the same scarlet uniform as Eleonor.
Blue hair and cold eyes like ice look out sharply from behind a pair of glasses.
“It’s the way of the mazoku to manipulate words so they seem genuine and deceive people.”
Fumu. Unlike Eleonor, the wind of hostility blows from this one.
It seems the hero academy has very mixed students.
“To begin with.” The man closes the book and slowly comes over to us. “Why would the demon king who committed many acts of atrocity make a wall that would protect humans at the cost of his own life? It’s totally nonsensical. They worship their ancestors too much and refuse to accept defeat. So much so in fact, it can only be called stupidity as it stops them from thinking properly.”
The man stops and turns to me.
“Don’t you think so guest from the demon king academy?”
“Fumu. I have the exact same opinion human. Then, in your free and forward-thinking way you should think about it a bit as well. The world wall <Aru Ent> was it? How was it possible to create and sustain such a huge magic barrier with only you humans magic power?” (Arnos)
