I Became a Blind Swordsman at the Academy - Chapter 134
I Became a Blind Swordsman at the Academy chapter 134
134. You’ve changed a lot since I didn’t see you, Leon (5)
“Hmm… I remember the old days.”
Ray stood on my lap and held the necklace hanging from my neck with his small hand.
Her necklace was not different from her, but a ‘necklace containing the warrior’s protection’ that she had a deep connection with.
“Did the warrior directly infuse the blessing?”
“Yeah. I sure did… Where did you get this from?”
“Obtained from Innocence Academy.”
“Ha, guy Oberth… He thought he was going to do useless things as usual, but was he planning something like this…”
After Ray laughed so hard, her eyes softened while looking at her necklace.
Does it remind me of old memories, old colleagues?
“…Let me tell you what happened to them after that…”
Ray nods her head quietly.
“It’s a record that has been handed down forever…”
After the hero’s death, I unraveled the stories of the members of the hero’s party.
Ray listened intently to her.
She tried to listen to every detail of her co-workers’ stories and asked any questions she had.
As we talked about her, before we knew it, Ray had her face completely immersed in her memories.
In particular, Ray laughed out loud when he informed that the strong northern warrior Dregonaut, who was in charge of the party’s tank, jumped alone into the land of the demons and inflicted enormous damage on the demons and ended his life on the battlefield.
She said that if it was the guy she knew, she would have.
Should I say fortunate?
The members of the warrior’s party ended their lives happily in their own way, being praised for their achievements.
If there is one strange thing, it is that everyone has been cut off.
So they cannot even meet their descendants.
“I see… Everyone went back to the ground…”
“It’s been hundreds of years.”
Actually, one of her former colleagues, the ‘Sage’, is still alive in the deepest part of the labyrinth, but his survival is not the information I can tell you.
I don’t know if the wise man will notice the hero’s arrival and reveal himself or not, but even if they do meet, I wonder if the two of them will have a close conversation.
Anyway, the sage wouldn’t drive out the hero, so it didn’t matter much.
“Then there must be ‘almost’ no one who remembers me now.”
I wondered what she was saying, so I asked.
There aren’t many beings that can live on for hundreds of years. At least, it would be about elves or dragons.
“There must be demons who remember me. It’s really paradoxical.”
I tilt my head at Ray’s words, and she adds her own.
“I’m talking about the elders.”
“Elder… I’ve heard of such things, but were they capable of living for hundreds of years?”
“Hundreds of years? I don’t know exactly how many years they can live. What’s certain is that they knew the hero before me. Back then, I didn’t have any memory of my previous life like I do now, so I didn’t even know it was me. Anyhow. I think he’s still alive. I don’t know if I can describe it as alive, but…”
“The ‘elder’ I met was just a big ‘meat’.”
“A piece of meat…?”
I can’t draw a picture with only words.
“I can only express it like that. Even though I don’t have a part that can be called a mouth, I can communicate. I even killed him without sharing a few words… But there are still elders left. They are not one or two.”
It was an interesting talk.
It seems that you can at least go to the land of the demons to meet them, but unfortunately, there was not much information because you couldn’t set foot in the land of the demons in the game.
Ray, hearing the sound of candy rolling in his mouth, steps away from me and goes back to his seat.
Ray asked me to allow him to remain as a ‘hero’ in a private space with no ears to hear.
Of course I agreed.
I thought so.
I didn’t mean to play house.
For me, it would have been better if I could have faithfully acted in the necessary situation.
Sierra was amazed at Ray in such a strange situation.
Sierra, sitting quietly on the side of the wagon and watching Ray petting her Shady, asked me when she would become a true hero, and I passed it on to Ray.
“…The master asks.”
I told Ray about her relationship with Sierra and me.
Maybe Ray will be living with her in her dormitory, so even if she didn’t let anything uncomfortable happen, it was better to share her secrets that could be hers.
“When will you become stronger… Hmm, well, I haven’t even made contact with the light spirit yet… I think it’s impossible to handle the ‘Holy Sword’ properly, at least with the current body.”
After hearing Ray’s answer, Sierra nodded lightly. Because they couldn’t interact with each other, they had to go through me to communicate.
Simply summarizing, in many ways, ‘growth’ is needed more.
Well, the resurrection of the demon king is still far away, so I didn’t think it was a problem that I needed to pay attention to right now.
“Did they say the destination was the desert? Did Obert build the academy in the desert?”
Ray looked out of the wagon and asked.
It was a late question to ask as we were already approaching the desert.
“It’s not like that, but I have one more sister to take to the academy, hahahaha…”
Ray’s eyes widen.
Ray and Zeppetti.
If everything goes according to my plan, the two will live together in my dormitory.
Since Ray is right in front of me, all I have to do is go to the desert and bring Zepetty to him.
There was no big problem with bringing it.
The problem was how to introduce each other to each other.
My choice was decided to ‘reveal everything without hiding anything’.
Two fake sisters.
A reincarnated hero who never was a sister… No she never was a woman, and an artificial intelligence who was never human.
On the one hand, a warrior who can teach us what it means to be human. The other side is an artificial intelligence that can tell you what your sister is through data.
I thought we had a lot to learn from each other.
“…Not really a sister.”
“Similar to the warrior.”
“Hey, brother. I can’t understand what you’re saying. Are you saying there was another hero besides me?”
Ray, who had only appropriately added the word “Brother” And was still talking like a warrior, asked that question.
“It’s not like that, it means fake sister.”
“Ah… How did he end up like that…?”
Ray, who was stroking Shady in her arms, asked in a pitiful voice.
“I think I have to take him with me because of unavoidable circumstances. He’s human first of all, but technically he’s not human.”
At my absurd explanation, Ray opens her mouth and looks at me in awe.
“Hmm… You could say it’s a highly intelligent, egoic golem. But it’s human.”
Finally, Ray frowned at her.
This was very similar to Sierra’s reaction, which was explained a while ago.
It was something I couldn’t help myself either.
I think she explained it in the most understandable way possible.
Zepetti was a foreign being in this world. Well, even if it wasn’t a fantasy world like this, it would be a sufficiently heterogeneous existence.
“When you meet, you will naturally know.”
“… Then her older brother can’t live without dying… She has two younger sisters who aren’t related by blood… Doesn’t that ‘setup’ change?”
“Yes, let’s leave her setting as it is. Perhaps her younger sister’s performance will be amazing. She will need to learn from her, hero.”
“…For safety’s sake, I can’t help it. For now, I’ll follow the will of ‘brother’.”
Soon, Ray, who put her chin on her chin and crushed her chubby cheeks, looks out the window at her with her sullen face.
She thinks that she doesn’t have to ask for anything from Ray. If it were my Petty, she would learn her humanity even if she was by her side.
Because he is a warrior who saved the world.
There are many things to learn.
I might be able to teach you, but it seemed that he would have more time alone with Ray than with me, an academy cadet.
‘I hope we can have a good influence on each other…’
“Check the condition of the body.”
The orb in the audience room makes a sound.
“As a result of self-diagnosis, your body temperature is within the normal range. Your current heart rate is 80. We need to check if all parts are working normally.”
With that said, the orb opens, emitting thick smoke.
A single white leg, unblemished from the sphere, clears the smoke and protrudes.
Instantly put strength on your legs.
A girl who stood up as if she was used to it and got out of the sphere completely.
She was the first to set foot on her land, but the red eyes of the girl with her white silver hair showed no emotion of admiration or fear.
“Your body range of motion is being tested.”
A girl moving her arms around as she walks straight ahead of her.
A sharp piece of scrap metal lands on her floor and cuts her foot.
“Minor damage to her left foot. She has no problems moving.”
The girl looks at her feet as if nothing happened, with no movement on her face.
There was red blood on her wounded feet.
“Bodily reaction is also confirmed to be normal. Abnormal, check end. Main system ‘Zepetti’, start.”
The girl is stunned with her head facing the front.
The girl blinked her eyes a few times as she stared blankly into the void before regaining her consciousness.
Petty bows her head and looks down at her own hand.
A dark shadow was engraved on her face, which had not contained any emotion before.
The girl’s breathing quickens.
Je Petty noticed that her stress level was increasing.
It was an abnormal reaction, but in a sense, it had to be seen as a very normal reaction.
Petty, who was only her inorganic body, had ’emotions’. She was like that, and as she took possession of her body, she was naturally experiencing bodily reactions driven by emotions.
The amount of data she had about her ‘little sister’, which she learned by order of my discussion, was quite large.
However, Zepeti, who gained emotion, made one mistake.
Precisely, it collided with the ‘learning’ she continued.
The emotions she learned from her previous owner, Jeto, were negative emotions such as anxiety, confusion, and nervousness.
When Jeto, whom she met after 200 years of waiting, leaves her side for a while, this leads to her anxiety.
Zepetti was confused by this nervousness.
In the end, Zeppetti started to get anxious.
Couldn’t she be abandoned like this?
How long will she have to wait?
Will Jeto really come back to himself?
“Now we can meet…”
Soon, the current organism, a new ‘Zepetti’ with a human body is born.
Zeppetti muttered softly, her face suddenly brightening.
