Why Ignorant Harems Are Dangerous chapter 24
24 – #06. Escape (2)
The world is not very kind to the weak.
The first time the girl realized it was on a very cold day, she remembered.
The cold wave was so severe that it was meaningless to prepare for winter.
It was a season when it was so cold that even the livestock we raised were frozen to death.
At that time, her mother was ill and her father was desperately trying to find food, but no one reached out to Lenny’s family.
I was fine with just a little food.
Because the disease wasn’t too bad.
It was good enough to bring back stamina, so it was enough to have food, and with a little help, I was able to get out of bed and get up quickly.
But no one helped her family.
Eventually her condition worsened and her mother passed away first.
She would think that there was nothing she could do about it, but after that her mother died and her mouth was reduced.
His father beat his chest and expressed his resentment. He lost his family in that harsh winter and gradually became a broken man.
Too harsh environment for a girl who lost her eyesight.
After that, Lenny’s father lost his will to live until spring came, summer passed, and autumn gradually caused friction and accidents in the village, which put her father and daughter on the verge of being deported.
At that time, an epidemic broke out in the village.
The blind girl couldn’t see the horror with her own eyes, but her continuous moans and screams, and the pitiful cries of those left behind hinted at the collapse of her village.
Even in that situation, no one took care of the blind girl.
My father eventually contracted an infectious disease, cursed the world until the end, lamented his condition, and eventually took his own life blaming himself for his helplessness.
The world is not on the side of the weak.
I knew that, but now, even the word “Weak” Was unreasonable for a girl who was left alone with no one to really take care of her.
Just weeds in the field.
An existence that won’t bother anyone even if they step on it and trample it. It seems to be there, it seems not to be. I thought it was just an existence that could survive like that.
Then, the man set foot in the village.
‘What is this?’
At that time, the girl starved for several days, and she just leaned against the wall, waiting for the day she would die.
Most of the able-bodied people left the village, and those who were left there were already hopeless or weak with no one to take care of them.
Unfortunately, Lenny belonged to both.
‘Such a disease. This is a bit dangerous.’
I heard a buzz somewhere.
The girl tried to raise her head, but she didn’t have the strength to turn her head in the direction of her voice, so she just limp and gasped.
‘Is it an epidemic?’
‘Hey, John. I think we’d better leave quickly.’
I can hear the sound of chatter.
Such a cursed place, you’d better leave quickly.
The girl thought so, but she couldn’t bring herself to speak, so she just closed her eyes and waited for the time to pass.
There was no way for the girl to live anyway.
Then she wished for a quick death, but for some reason the girl didn’t even catch the contagious disease and she just carried on with her ephemeral life.
Life has no meaning.
There is no meaning to the weak.
‘Hey? Yaya! Zone! And if you do move…… !!’
‘Because it’s okay.’
I didn’t even feel the sense of hunger.
Instead, she just couldn’t move her body.
It was fortunate that even the sense of pain had disappeared, but in return the girl was dying little by little.
The moment I thought was the end of that short life.
‘Are you okay?’
The man stretched out his hand.
An orphan in a village where no one looked back.
Who would have taken care of the girl who lost her eyesight and would not be able to take care of herself when everyone had already left, and who would try to take care of her?
However, the man approached the girl regardless of the plague.
That’s how the man and the girl met.
In Hell, where only the dying were left, the two faced each other.
Lenny shook her head as she recalled those days.
Although she knew that this situation was related to the past that Seo had been hiding, the girl had never resented Seo.
After all, if it wasn’t for him, the girl would already be dead.
So, this life is the life that the uncle saved.
I wanted to at least be of some help.
The girl muttered briefly.
Calling a man who suffered from nightmares every night.
A man who screamed and called someone every night, perhaps because Moore was so sad. All I could do for him was hold his hand and whisper that it was okay.
At least compared to the past, it has improved considerably.
In the past, when I was led by his hand, we didn’t talk to each other unless we needed something for a while, and there was always silence in the inn where the two of us were.
Our relationship had developed to the point where we could now talk about light topics with each other, and I also felt that the man’s nightmares were improving little by little.
I wanted to watch a little more.
I hoped that it would be of some help to the benefactor’s life.
Is that all there is to it?
The girl hugged her knees and buried her head.
Time just goes by slowly.
I have already adapted to the noise around me, and I am no longer startled by the dripping drops of water from the ceiling.
Around the time I got used to it little by little, a voice that couldn’t be heard from here called out to the girl.
“Are you okay?”
“Wait. I’ll get it out right away.”
Then, with a creaking sound, a rather rough male hand grabbed the girl’s arm.
“Did something happen to you?”
“I’m fine, but how can you… ….”
“There are ways.”
He said softly and put the girl on his back.
Judging from the saintess’ reaction, she thought there was no chance of releasing Seo, but in fact, the girl felt somewhat suspicious when he saw him running towards her.
I knew that this was the capital of the Holy Kingdom.
In that case, there must have been many people around her, but how did she come all this way alone?
With heavy steps, Seo moved forward slowly.
Leni put her arms around his neck, but then frowned at the fishy scent that came from her nose.
Because the girl lost her eyesight, her hearing, touch, smell, and other senses were a bit more sensitive than others.
The smell of such a girl was not that of a dungeon.
Leni definitely remembered this smell.
A very different smell from the fishy blood of an animal.
“Are you hurt?”
“No big deal.”
The scent of blood was too strong to say it was nothing special.
I didn’t know when he first approached me, but every time I moved on my back like this, a bloody smell vibrated. It even felt like the scent was gradually getting stronger, but Seo hurried his steps, saying that it was just okay.
“Uncle. I’ll get off.”
“You can’t move like that.”
At Leni’s words, Seo laughed bitterly.
He has a sense that he stabbed harder than he thought, but without that, there is no way the paladins would have retreated. Because he was an opponent who could be deceived only when he showed that he was truly prepared for death.
But he couldn’t stop here.
Cecilia said she would kill Lenny, and as long as Seo herself remains captured, her goal, the holy war, will not stop.
“The situation is urgent. To be honest, it’s not good enough. Now I have to move even one step further and escape somehow.”
“Sorry. You got me involved in this.”
Lenny wanted to deny that, but she couldn’t open her mouth because of the commotion coming from upstairs.
* * *
After escaping the dungeon with Lenny on his back, he saw a procession of paladins, priests, and other common soldiers all over the area.
“Who is the saint?”
“I heard you were hurt.”
Were the priests gathered for treatment?
She turned her head slightly, but Cecilia was nowhere to be seen. That was fortunate, but if I went ahead like this, would I be able to break through the crowd and escape?

Doubts for a moment.
But her goal of getting out of here hasn’t changed.
“Get out of the way because there is no work.”
“You shouldn’t do this. The saintess will be coming here soon, so it’s best for the two of you to have a conversation first…….”
“I don’t like long talk. If you want to get rid of a corpse here, why don’t you keep blocking the road like that?”
Apart from her left hand supporting Lenny, her right hand continued to hold the knife.
I pointed it at my neck, then slowly moved towards them.
“How is it? Will I really die here or not? Would you like to gamble?”
Come to think of it, this situation was also quite funny.
Threatening with life against those who will imprison me. This was the only thing I could do, and to my surprise, this method was also the most effective.
“…… It is dangerous if you keep moving.”
“Really? Then I guess it’s not dangerous for my neck to be pierced here.”
I didn’t want to be as harsh as possible because I was carrying Lenny, but I couldn’t help it because of the situation.
The girl’s arm around her neck trembled slightly.
“I won’t say it again. Move.”
“…… Back away.”
At the words of the priest who seemed to be the representative, everyone moved little by little and cleared the way.
If you go a little further, you can head to the exit of the cathedral.
After that, there was still a problem with how to get out of the city, but if you get out of the cathedral first, you’ll have a chance to hide.
The way to leave.
In the back, the priest of Nogu talked to me.
“We sincerely serve the world.”
“Oh, is that so?”
I don’t know why the holy war was for the sake of the world, but I could admit that the church members were frustrated by the endless tragedies in this world.
Yes, because not everyone has the same values.
Just as they couldn’t understand why I would start another war to stop one, they might have stepped out on their own to stop what was happening in this cruel world.
“So, please listen to the saintess.”
She turned her head slightly to meet her gaze and opened her mouth.
“I am working for my world.”
The world you live in is different from the world I live in.
It’s probably all the same.
“So don’t force your values on me.”
I feel overwhelmed just carrying it on my shoulders right now.
Even if you try to add something invisible and conceptual, such as the fate of the world, it is just difficult.
