I Became a Blind Swordsman at the Academy - Chapter 140
I Became a Blind Swordsman at the Academy chapter 140
140. I’m not that crazy anyway
Knock on the desk.
ㅡ Tok Tok.
The room was so quiet that I could hear the ticking of the clock on one side.
In the dark room, the golden eyes of the girl were shining brightly.
The girl was looking back at what had happened today.
“You said you had a family…?”
She found out the hidden secret of the man she had a crush on.
A past that everyone wants to hide.
You always have a secret, but…
…It felt so strange to her.
Jetto said she was still looking for her scattered sisters.
This is something that didn’t happen in the last episode.
Why didn’t this happen in the last episode?

No matter how much I thought about it, the tightly tied knot was hardly untied.
More important than that.
“Why did I find out now?”
Jetto’s important information.
Important information that he has a precious family.
Why did I find out now?
It was pitiful.
The girl, Eisel, closed her eyes.
Immediately a black darkness colored her vision, but she was clearly visible to her.
The end of Zeto.
The last image of him, who was horribly broken.
Then, does that mean that Jeto from the last episode was unable to reunite with his younger sisters forever while helping him?
Eisel’s face contorted as she closed her eyes.
It was a terrible thing to imagine, but it was not a imagination, it was a disaster that happened in the past that she had already experienced.
Her sister and brother.
Even if they are not related by blood, they are still within the framework of ‘family’.
She didn’t remember her family, so she didn’t know her very well… But she did know that she was something that was so precious to ordinary people that some would give up their lives for it.
In the last episode, Zeto was unable to reunite with his younger sisters.
In the last episode, Jeto ended his life fleetingly while trying to save himself.
This fact was tightening her heart as if it would explode.
Of course, Eisel never asked Zeto for help. Her only sin she committed was that she had a close relationship with Jeto, who came to her.
Eisel leans over and buries her face on her desk.
It’s cold and hard.
I didn’t feel any warmth.
So many things have already changed.
At some point, an ominous aura presumed to be a curse was engraved in Zeto’s body, and while walking on such a precarious path, he succeeded in reuniting with his younger siblings and brought them to the academy.
‘I think that the inside of Innocence Academy will be safe even for my younger sisters.’
A comment added to the explanation of the introduction of his younger sisters.
The academy is safe.
I was worried about that obvious statement without knowing why.
I had only an ominous feeling.
Within seconds, Eisel clears her head and manages to stand her up.
Excessive delusion is poison.
It was just something that hadn’t happened yet.
The girl who got up from her chair, slicking her white blonde hair, slowly recalled what she could do now.
Jetto and his sisters.
Zetto has become a person who should not die even more now.
Even to Eisel, Jetto is a person he would never want to lose, but it must be the same for Jetto’s younger sister.
There was one thing Eisel gave up this time while watching his cute little sister ‘Ray’ who was being carried on Jeto’s back.
She broke the insistence that she would lift the curse engraved in Zeto’s heart.
It occurred to her that she could no longer put Zeto’s life in jeopardy over one of her own pitiful greed.
She could no longer assert her personal greed.
This was no different from her atonement for not being able to protect her brother.
Just in time, through the wide open window, a black model silently steps into Eisel’s room.
“You came quickly.”
Eisel greeted her with her calmness.
A woman wearing a black robe slowly approaches Eisel.
She then lowers her robe.
The identity of the woman who eventually appeared was Blanc, the southern branch manager of the continent’s best information guild, the Black Hand.
“Suddenly asking for the location of the saintess… Eisel, what the hell are you trying to do?”
Blanc argued and listened, but Eisel indifferently asked back.
“So the location.”
“Of course I figured it out… But would you like me to tell you about it first? You’re such a precious person that it’s hard for me to tell you if it’s going to cause an accident. Do you know that I wouldn’t even tell you this kind of information if it weren’t for you in the first place?”
“She has something to ask her personally.”
“Be more specific.”
Blanc returns Eisel’s ambiguous answer.
“…I’m going to ask Haeju.”
“Who’s cursed? Probably not you.”
Eisel’s mouth fell shut at Blanc’s question.
Blanc’s sharp senses sensed something unusual in Eisel’s serious face.
Blanc asked, and Eisel avoided her gaze.
“No, what happened to that guy…?”
Yes. Blanc was talking about Jetto.
He was the only person who would care enough for Eisel to entrust her haeju to her saintess.
“I don’t even know that.”
“Are you sure it’s cursed?”
At Blanc’s question, Eisel lightly nodded her head.
“An ominous energy emanates from the heart… No matter how much I think about it, it can only be seen as a curse.”
Eisel, who closed her eyes tightly, continued her words.
“…Unless you forcefully open and close the chest and insert a cursed object into it. The Jetto I know is a little quirky…But he’s not a lunatic enough to commit such outrageous things. I don’t think there’s any reason to force something with bad energy into the heart even while undergoing ‘major surgery’ to open and close the chest.”
Blanc nodded her head lightly in affirmation.
Eisel’s explanation made sense.

Not to mention her lack of skill to the extent that Eisel misunderstood her ominous aura.
“…How much of a curse?”
“According to the investigation, my life… My life is at a dangerous level… I think it’s the curse of the demons.”
Eisel answered with difficulty.
“I don’t know the reason or cause. But that was the only curse engraved on my heart.”
Blanc sighs as he folds his arms and organizes the situation in his head.
“Haa… I guess I’ll have to go find the saintess.”
“So where is the saintess?”
“Still, it’s good news. I thought I’d be in the Holy Land, but unexpectedly, I’m in a city close to here. It looks like I’m working… I guess I’ll have enough time to do it. Have you prepared the money?”
“…A lot of money.”
“Yes, have you ever run out of money…”
For Eisel, the cost was not a problem. For her regressor, there were infinitely many ways to earn her money.
She was the one who often wiped out criminal organizations with so-called ‘black money’ because she decided not to choose any means and methods in this episode.
I had a lot of money.
Only questions remained about how the saintess, who was already acquainted with Zeto, would accept this, and why the saintess did not curse Zeto.
As Chairman Hubert said, complex procedures were handled quickly.
There were more beds and other furniture, and it seemed that Ray and Zeppetti could now go in and out through the front door of the dormitory.
Well, the other cadets in the men’s dormitory glanced at Ray on their backs bizarrely, but everyone just assumed that and moved on.

Now that I have laid the sleeping Ray on her bed and finished a simple meal with Zeppetti.
Following Ze Petty’s suggestion if she could check my condition for a moment, she was sitting on her bed and being closely analyzed by her.
It seems that Shady was also ‘eating’ during the meal, so she was worried about bleeding.
“…For some reason, I’m detecting an impurity containing a huge amount of energy in Zeto’s heart, but what’s its purpose? If it needs to be removed, I can try the operation myself.”
Zepetti, who was staring at my chest, spoke softly.
It seems to be referring to ‘tears of the dead’.
“You don’t have to. It’s… An item that allows you to resurrect…”
“…Resurrection? Is that the ‘resurrection’ I know?”
In response to Zeppetti’s question, I explained how I obtained the dead man’s tears, what kind of item they were, and how I got them embedded in my body.
Sierra, who listened to her explanation together, shook her head, saying that looking back now, she was full of energy.
“…That’s what happened. From what you’ve said, it sounds like it was a fairly drastic operation, but the operation went well without any loss of life.”
“Is that so…?”
“I can’t judge the level of dragon’s medical technology, so I can’t question the safety, but I guess normal humans would be reluctant to perform such an operation.”
“But it’s a resurrection.”
“Yes, the gains obtained cannot be denied. This has allowed Jeto to live a longer life, so I think it’s a good thing. There will be more opportunities to sow Jeto’s seeds. Ask.”
An opportunity to sow seeds.
Zepetti was still unstoppable in his choice of words.
However, this seemed to be one of the reasons and purpose of Zepetty’s existence, so it was difficult to tackle.
Following, Zeppetti, who was scanning my body, opens his mouth.
“Your body has only weakened for a while, but it seems that there are no other abnormalities.”
“It’s because of Shady here that I shed blood.”
I pointed to Shady, who was on top of me.
“Did you say it was a spirit? It doesn’t look very good to eat away at Zeto’s life force…”
Shady over my head must have felt Petty’s cold stare, so he stopped eating and shrank his body.
“It can’t be helped. He’s a useful guy in many ways.”
Around the time Zepetty and I were having such a conversation, Ray, who was sleeping on the other side, complained.
Lay then suddenly stood up.
“Are you awake, hero?”
I ask Ray, who rubbed her eyes to see if Petty is dreamy.
It’s still early to wake up, but maybe the conversation between Zeppetti and I was noisy.
Soon after, Ray with a pouty face opened her mouth.
“What is it?”
I questioned Ray’s sudden words, but she still stuck out her mouth and didn’t answer.
Soon, Ray’s eyes turned her head and looked around her room, moving from her head to Shady, who was eating her meal.
She gets off her bed and immediately runs towards me with a dodo sound.
When I was still, wondering what to do, Ray stood up on the bed I was sitting on, took Shady from above my head, and held her in her arms.
“…I’ll borrow it for a while.”
She nodded her head at her absurd behavior.
Ray goes back to her own bed and she lies down again. Lying on her bed, she held Shady tightly.
As Petty stares at Ray in silence, Ray, who blushes, exclaims loudly for no reason.
“This, this has been like this ever since I was Le, Leon…!”
…It was an irrational number that no one would believe.
With Blanc’s help, I was able to meet Saint Bernice on time.
Although it was not a formal request to meet her, Bernice readily agreed to meet her, perhaps remembering the me she saw during the open class.
Bernice doesn’t have much time, she said.
She said she only took a moment because she had work to do.
So, without delay, I got straight to the point.
I asked Bernice.
Ask for Zeto’s curse.
I wasn’t in a good mood because I didn’t know what her relationship was with Jeto, but right now I wasn’t in a situation where I could be so jealous.
As expected, Bernice knew that Jeto was cursed.
“The Curse of Cadet Zeto… I mean…”
Her expression darkened, Bernice blurted out her words.
“I don’t care how much it costs. As long as I can get rid of his curse on time, that’s enough for me.”
My earnest request continued.
Things weren’t so good.
In this situation where Bernice knew of Jeto’s curse, there were two cases in which she did not cast off Jeto’s curse.
First, Bernice is not close to him, or is not benevolent enough to curse him without any cost.
I didn’t know very well about Bernice, so there was a possibility of this. In this case, she had nothing she couldn’t do as long as it cost enough.
But the worst was the second case.
Bernice hesitates to answer.
Her lips hardly opened.
“Isn’t it okay…?”
Bernice closes her eyes tightly.
Finally she opens her mouth.
“…I cannot curse Cadet Zeto.”
Inadvertently, the short horse came out.
I feel trembling in my eyes.
My hair went white in an instant.
Bernice didn’t care about my rudeness and continued his words.
“I can’t tell you the exact reason. It’s just that I can’t be involved in Cadet Zeto’s curse at all… If this is the end of the business, can you please leave. I’m busy with the Knights.”
I wanted to hit the desk in my anger, but I endured it and managed to leave the room.
It was the second time.
For some reason, Saint Bernice cannot participate in the curse.
There is only one reason.
As far as Bernice is concerned, there is only one being who can give such an order to her saintess.
After all, it’s not the same ‘fate’.
Annoyance wells up.
As I left the room, I took a deep breath and pondered.
The bulwark of ‘saint’ was broken, and it returned to the starting point.
If this happens… In the end, there was only one option left for me.
