59-Melody in the flame

 The road to the house.
 Mom is walking around, chatting with the girls in the Fun Union.

 It's already dark and unpopular.

'Miss Isabella,'

 She called out to me and my mom turned around.
 Emilia was standing there.

'Good evening, Emilia-sensei. It's amazing that two students in your class are in the finals.''

 Mom says.

'Yes, thank you. I'm very proud of you both.'

 Emilia smiled. There was something dark in her expression.

''Is this your home, Emilia-sensei?''

No. Actually, the day before the final, you are required to keep your sword for yourself. So I hurriedly chased after them.

 The female members of the Fan Union give a wary look.

''Was there such a provision...?''

I don't know, but...

 The girls exchanged that in a whisper.

'I see. I didn't know that. Are you going to leave it in the care of the convention's steering committee?'

 Mom asks, without any pretense of alarm.

'Yes. I've heard that they make sure there are no sword swaps. But it's just a formality.

 Hmm. I see. So she was after my sword.
 Are you going to do something with it, or do you want to destroy it?

'Okay. Well then, it's not a good idea to ask your teacher for help, so I'll go and give it directly to the conference management committee.

No, that won't be necessary. I'm going back to the academy anyway.

To tell you the truth, I left something at the school too. Would you like me to come with you?

 Mom chuckles.
 Emilia looks slightly dismayed.

'But there are some strange things. I've read through all the rules and regulations of the tournament, but I didn't see any mention of leaving your sword in custody the day before. It says that each person is responsible for his or her own sword.

 Mom never cracks a smile.
 I'm sure she doesn't doubt Emilia from the top of her head, but she doesn't take her word for it either.

 If she had researched the Demon Emperor, she would have come up with information on the Imperialist and Unification factions.
 He would also know that Emilia was an Imperialist.

''Let's go. We have to make sure we know what kind of regulations were in place, right?''

 Emilia must be inwardly amused.
 Mom seems to be so easily fooled at first glance.

 But in human society, compared to the demon race, there are far more frauds.
 Even if you take a single product manual, the level of detail in the written rules is enough to give you a headache just by looking at it.
 People are very fussy about rules.

 It may be the same even after two thousand years.
 In fact, it is even getting worse.

 Even if you trust them, you still have to check to be sure.
 It seems that Emilia has somewhat underestimated the common sense of human society.

 Well, it can't be helped, because thanks to the wall I built, there was almost no interaction between the demon race and humans.

''Well that's troubling........''

 Saying that, Emilia grabbed the sheath part of the Vajra Iron Sword.


'Isabella. Please give me that sword. Otherwise, you'll be in a lot of pain.

 Mom pulled the hilt as hard as she could and pulled the sword from its scabbard.

'Are you sure? If you don't listen to me, then your sword might die with you as well.

 A magic circle appeared in Emilia's palm, and a appeared there.
 Even so, Mother still refused to let go of her sword.

''Your filthy body, which gave birth to an abomination who would defy the royal family, shall I burn it with this fire?

 A great red-black flame flared up with great force and turned into a ball of fire and attacked my mother.

''Mother! Please run!

 Eight female students from the Fan Union deployed their anti-magic at the same time.
 The barrier that seemed to have prevented the for a moment, but the next moment, it violently burst into flames.


 Wrapped in intense flames, the female members of Fun Union crumble down.
 Although they managed to survive thanks to their anti-magic, they were severely burned.


 Mom's voice sounded like a scream.

'Emilia-sensei, why...? You're all his most important students, aren't you?

'No, for the lowly half-breed is not a pupil. They're just beggars who have been entrusted with my lessons.

 Emilia peeked out a smile with a dark sentimentality.

''Forget that, why don't you give me that sword?''


Why? Please don't talk about anything white.

 Emilia said with a tone of innocence, "My brother, Kurt Ludwell, is a swordsman who represents the royalists.

My brother, Kurt Ludwell, is the leading swordsman of the royalist school. He had more power and more noble heart than anyone else. Anos Voldigord is the unforgivable great sinner who cowardly defeated it. How could I sit back and watch him stand on the stage of the finals with a hot mess?

Anosu-chan fought fair and square! Doing this won't make your brother happy!

 Emilia glares at her mother as she slams down her anger.

'Fair is a word only allowed to the royal family. There is no nobility in the power of Anos Voldigord. No matter how strong it is, it is a lowly and cowardly power. There is no way that such a vile force would be allowed to defeat the imperial family.

''Don't you think it's strange that you would break Anos-chan's sword to prevent her from participating in the final? If you say the royal family is noble, then please do the right thing!

'You're wrong, Isabella. It is not the royal family that does the right thing. It is the right thing for them to do. Your arrogant words about the family being asked to do the right thing are a criticism of the family!

 A appears in Emilia's hands.
 An anti-magic was deployed to counter it.

''........Mother.......please run away......''

 The eight members of the Fan Union stood up, whipping their burned bodies.

''No. We're all in this together.''

If you loose your anti-magic now, you will be burned by the Gusgam. Please get as far away from here as possible. I'm sure Lord Anos will come for you.

But...! We'd all die if we were burned by those flames.......we're all burned even now!

 Emilia packs even more magic power.
 <The 【Great Heat Flame (Gusugam)】 has become more than twice as large as the previous one, and it is expanding even more.

 It's not going to be possible to prevent it with the anti-magic of the fan union.
 The difference in magic power is too desperate.

 However, the girls laughed.

''It's okay! There are eight of us and one of them.

Hmm. I think I skipped a few beats earlier.

Hey, hey! Why are you imitating the tone of Anos-sama?

'By imitating Anos-sama's tone, you can borrow one hundred millionth of his power, because it's fan magic!

Is there such a thing as magic?

If I could borrow one in a billion, it would be a piece of cake!

 In spite of the overwhelming danger, the girls are frightened, trying to unravel Mom's fears.

Mother, please go quickly. If your mother is here, we won't be able to give it our all!

 Mom nodded quickly.

'I'll get someone. Wait for me!

 Mom takes the sword in her hand and starts to run.

'As usual, I have no idea what you guys are thinking.

 Emilia says as she spits.

'You don't know that doing so won't even buy you time. There is no nobility, no power, not even wisdom. Foolish is the kind of word that's meant for you guys.

 Emilia emits a in her other hand as well.

''........It's not a waste of time.......''

"I'm not stupid...

 As if to tell themselves, the girls say.

''.........protect........Anos-sama's important people.......''


Let's go, people!

 The Fan Union joined forces and brought their anti-magic to full strength.
 However, the released from Emilia's right hand easily burned it out.

 After spreading out and dodging the first blow, the eight of them attacked Emilia at once with spears made from in their hands.
 However, the left-handed is released in all directions.
 The girls were wrapped up in the flames and flew off.

So I told you. It won't buy us any time.

 Emilia still sees her mother in her vision.
 She made the Great Hot Flame (Gusgam) appear in her hand.

 If she let it go, there would be no way for my mom to duck.

 Just then, a faint melody was heard.

"You're down here, I'm up here.........

 They are singing.
 The Fun Union girls prostrated on the ground.

 The girls staggered back up.
 But they would have no power to resist. If you ignore them, that's the end of it.

"You're down here, I'm up here you're down there...

 Emilia's face contorted.
 She said in a low voice.

'Will you please stop?'

 Another Fun Union girl stands up.

 Emilia shouted as if she couldn't bear it.

'You don't understand that I'm telling you to stop!

 Emilia burned one of the fan unions with .
 But despite being wrapped up in the flames, she sang.

''..........Kedakaki-Anos-sama's ~give me your ~kane~........''

 Try to get Emilia's attention.
 She's trying to buy a little time.

 The remaining seven people, without weapons, rushed into Emilia with their bare hands.

I told you to stop, I told you to stop!

 The girl burns.
 The song - does not stop.

 Another girl crumbled.
 Sing and you will be burned. Still, the girls raised their voices.

 The breathless, weak melody echoes.

'....you're down and I'm up.......'

You're down here! You are beneath the f*cking royal family! Stop your irreverent singing! That's a criticism of the royal family!

 Enraged, Emilia uses her magic and burns the Fun Union girls.

 One by one, one by one, the girls groveled to the ground.

'....You're down and I'm up.......'

 The two remaining.

 And so the last one is burned by the , the great hot flame.

 Even so, her singing voice still echoed sadly from the flames.

''Don't make me put you to unnecessary trouble...!

 Emilia clicked her tongue.

'But in the end it's no use,'

 She used  And in the blink of an eye, she caught my mother in her field of vision.


 <The Great Hot Flame (Gusgam) intensely flared up, and in an instant, it approached my mother.
 Then, a pillar of flame went up in that place with a goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

 With a high smile, Emilia descends to the ground.

'Haha, finally, it's all cleared up. Shall I send the body to that misfit?

 She walks off as if she were skipping.

'Hmm. You're in a good mood. What's the matter with you?

 She stopped dead in her tracks and stared at my back.


 <I used the Gatom to transfer from the magic clinic to become my mother's shield.

"Mom, are you hurt?

I'm fine.

 And Mom hides her own fingertips behind her back.
 He was slightly burned.
 Because it was just in time, I couldn't cover up for it.

 <After using the healing power to heal it, I turned to the teacher.

"Hey, Emilia.

 I take a step forward.
 Even though the distance is still a long way off, Emilia trails off significantly, as if spooked.

'I'm tolerant. I don't remember being angry even before I was reborn. I'm not going to be able to tell you what to do. I didn't think I had the narrow-mindedness to surrender to their anger.

 I stare straight at Emilia.
 What do I look like now?

 I can't imagine what I look like.

'No, no, quite the contrary, it was a mistake.'

 I took another step and spoke up.
 It seemed to sound colder than I expected.

'Emilia, you will not be forgiven,'
