“Chapter 326: Decision”
It’s been three days since I returned to Bay Road.
I’ve done nothing but lay in my bed and rest.
Rudra and Feria insisted I needed to rest my body and mind after these stressful months.
Raksha and Roar took over the work while I was away so that I would be able to relax if I came back.
– Good morning, Master.
– Did you get some rest (Akane)
– I couldn’t really fall asleep.
All three of them had been given special permission to safeguard me in case Nayuta decided to suddenly appear.
– Hey… I have a favor-
– No way.
– Come on.
It’s been three days already…
I was fully expecting to never be able to use my powers again after forcing myself to recreate Moonflower not once but twice.
My Level must have increased by a lot during my stay at the whale because after a day of rest I was back to normal.
– No is no.
Even if you feel fine you need to keep resting.
Give it one or two months before you go back to work.
– One or two months…
Everyone here knew about my situation, but they still insisted on me spending time here.
I only have four more days left.
– You don’t have to worry.
Even if those two come to take you away from us, we’ll protect you.
– Tilchina-sama has arranged for every single high-ranked demon, including herself, to be ready to jump into action at a moment’s notice should you need help.
– The sages, the Thundercloud crew, everyone from the Royal Capital, they’re all guarding you with their best efforts.
There’s nothing to worry about.
– …That means absolutely nothing.
Even if every single warrior in this world tried to defy those two, it would be impossible.
Nayuta’s ability is a cheat.
We can’t win.
Kouya and I found out that her ability had a slightly lesser effect on us since we’re not from this world, but even then Kouya was quickly overwhelmed as if he was a mere insect.
– I’ve been thinking nonstop for the past few days.
I’ve reached the conclusion that it’s impossible for us to win.
Horribly gruesome images flashed in my mind whenever I imagined what would happen if I refused Nayuta’s invitation.
– I’m glad that you’re all worried about me.
I’d like to stay here forever.
– … (M/M/A)
– …I’m sorry.
I wanted to be as positive as possible, but it was pointless.
– Knock Knock –
– Ahh, who’s interrupting (Akane)
– I’ll check.
Leaving the three of them to continue with their chores, I went to open the door.
– Who is it
– Hey, good morning.
Do you have some time
Standing there with a heartbroken smile was my first ever companion in this world.
