'It's nothing short of appalling that you would charge me with just being able to use the same magic as the ringleader.
Barzalondo said these words right after Ottolou was gone.
''The St. Upper Sixth Academy has failed to do justice by foregoing this affiliation and shutting down the mouths of opposition, even as it is.
Are you sure? I'm sure the head of your place is biting one too.
I pointed this out to him, but he answered immediately, knowingly.
'It is precisely because it is the initiative of His Majesty the Holy King that I, as Earl, must object to it. It is wrong to force inconvenience on the innocent in order to catch the guilty. That was not the case with the old Hyphoria.
Barzalondo expresses righteous indignation from his entire body.
At this time of fire and urgency, when one of the Holy Upper Sixth Academy has been destroyed, I guess Pablo Hetala would rather have his allies swallow it than be watched by his allies.
As long as the Six Holy Colleges have confidence in him, it won't be much of a problem.
Some heads of state may be more comfortable with having someone watching them to prove their innocence, rather than being accused of something they don't need.
"Complaining won't get us anywhere. "Complaining won't get us anywhere, all we have to do is find out who's behind it.
Barzalondo nodded vigorously.
'They will watch you, but they can steal your eyes. At Ewezeino, this Baltzalond will surely expose them for what they've done.
'That's all well and good, but is the world of Militia safe? You said that the watchers at the St. Jude's Sixth Academy would only use force if they found something suspicious, but honestly, you don't know what they would find suspicious, do you? It sounds like the small world of Pablo Hetara and Militia are very different...
Sasha says anxiously.
'I'll tell Faris and Misha. We were going to have them back before the Silverwater Pecking Order game, but they will have to wait in the Militia world.
The "thought communication (leaks)" arrives at the silver-lit rail that leads to the world of Militia.
But because of the distance and the noise from the silver water, the magic line isn't solid enough to transmit images from the past as is. You can't reach the level of the "thought communication (leaks)" in an instant.
I wanted to show Mom the appearance of Luna 2,000 years ago in person at the Genesis Aeryal, but it looks like it's not going to happen anytime soon.
If you'd rather have her return, I have a suggestion.
'I will send my men over in a silver water ship. In the name of the Count, I swear to you that I will not let the watchers touch the world of Militia.
''If you're elected from the Holy Sepulchre Institute, you could be a hunter and a nobleman from Highforia, just like you.
'Whatever their status is, it doesn't change what we have to do. My men and I owe a debt of gratitude to you. If you won't do your duty to the love of my life, I will abandon the name of nobility right now.
This is a man who challenged a two-tiered pretender for his men.
It is not a lie.
However, I can't leave it to Barzalondo's subordinates alone, who are ignorant of the situation in the Militia world.
'Shin. Singh, take Arcana and Misa and return to Militia in the Hunting Academy's ship. I will call Misha and Farris to you in turn. You two stay here and keep an eye on the watchers.
The strength of the silver-water hierarchy will be reduced, but it can't be helped.
It's not like we have to destroy the Nagas.
We can do something about it to buy more time.
"As you wish.
Shin uses and disappears from this place.
He went to call for Misa and Arcana.
"I'm going to get a boat for you.
Soon Barzalondo also left the quarters.
'How is your sister?'
Parrington asks, without losing his rugged expression.
'It's not very good,'
I left the great room and moved to my bedroom.
My mom was lying on the bed, my dad beside her, holding her hand.
'Gusta,' he said, 'it's better not to touch it too much. The less you touch it, the better. Those without strength will be consumed by the plagues from the Abyss of Craving.
To Parrington's words, however, Dad responded with a thumbs up.
'....Don't worry about it, my brother-in-law. That's about.........! Ugghhhh..........! Don't worry. This is nothing to worry about........
"...no ...no ...you are out of breath ...
Dad snickers at Parrington, who is upset.
I say, "The Abyss of Craving seems to respond to magic.
The Craving Abyss seems to respond to magic," he said. The Craving Abyss seems to react to magic, and using anti-magic to touch it can be physically harmful. You can't harm your father, who has little magic,
Because of that, Dad's body will be damaged like a curse, but that can be healed later.
"Well after what's happened to Isabella, I guess I should at least hold your hand....... Don't worry about it........I'm still very sensitive to pain.......
As if he didn't know what to say, Parrington just let out a raspy breath with a grim expression, "Mmm.......
Mom raises her voice in a strained voice.
"....Dominic your grandfather.........
Mom says deliriously.
'I won't ... give birth ... and no one will ever like ... anyone ... ever ...'
It's all right. Isabella. I don't know. That's all in the past. I'm here, Anos is here. I'm here. So don't worry!
...back in. Your grandfather, the kindest man you ever met...
Parrington turns to face me.
'Have you come to your senses?'
I'm sorry, but it's been going on forever. Occasionally he opens his eyes, but he doesn't seem to understand us.
Parrington closes in.
'A little better?'
Moving to push Dad away, Parrington turns his magic eye on Mom.
He looks troubled, and I explain to him.
'My mind is filled with memories of when I was Luna Arzenon.
It is possible that memories and thoughts of Luna Arzenon may have remained in the Abyss of Craving. I don't know the details, but it seems that the memory stone triggered a surge of energy from the memory of Luna Arzenon.
With a somber face, Parrington opens his mouth.
Not just now. If you continue to have your memories poured into your mind as wildly as this, you'll never have a proper memory. To begin with, there's no guarantee that this situation will end conveniently.
Unless, of course, it's man-made.
Unless Parrington is here and Dominic knows when to use the Memory Stone, there's no way this could happen.
"....maybe it's time to trigger a stronger memory...
Parrington draws a magic circle on his own right chest.
He puts his hand in there and takes out a red thread scattered with gold dust.
The two ritual swords are reacting.
It seems to be the authority of the Lord God.
"It's the idol's 'red thread'. ＜"It is the idol's red thread, linking the Memory Stone and my sister together, it is bound to its destiny and can be remembered with precision and accuracy.
What are the flaws?
I ask Parrington.
'If it was all about convenience, we should have used it all along.
How. I wouldn't have wanted to use it if I could have...
Parrington doesn't speak beyond that, his expression hardens.
It must be something that is difficult to say.
I looked into that abyss.
It's a bit like Eques' authority.
Hm. The power to connect fate is so strong that it overwrites the memories.
It is the puppet emperor's power to make even another person's memory a destiny. ＜If you tie it to the Memory Stone, anyone other than your sister will think it is your memory.
You're right that you wouldn't want to use it if you could.
Even if your mother wasn't Luna Arzenon, you could still change her to Luna Arzenon, you know.
'Of course, I'll try to make sure that the memory of the present is preserved. But I can't guarantee that. Even so, it's better than having the memories from the Craving Abyss poured in endlessly. If you can recover the memories of your previous life and control your power as the Abyss of Calamity Princess, you will be able to escape the dangerous situation you are in now.
'In case you're wondering, can you override it again with your current memory afterwards?
'The first fate to which we are bound is the strongest. It can be tried again and again, but your sister's roots will not be able to withstand it.
＜Using the red thread, there's a chance she'll recover for the time being.
But your mother may forget about the afterlife, about me, about him, about our life together.
You can wait and see.
Is it best to just wait and see and destroy the Phoenix in my womb?
Can you do more than one thing at a time with that red thread?
"...It has been stopped by the puppet emperor Bezu. When multiple destinies are intertwined, their control is difficult even for this body called the 'Red Thread Idol'.
You can do this, can't you?
Parrington looked at me quizzically.
'Then put it together with the and give me and my dad the root of it. I'll call out to your mother to make sure she doesn't forget what she's doing.
＜Combine my father's past with Luna Arzénon's in the Memory Stone, and combine them with my father's past and Isabella's.
That way, this memory will not disappear.
"....a great deal of risk........and a guarantee of success....
Then no more talk about the red thread. If you were conscious, I wouldn't say you would give up your memory. Never.
I told him so, but Parrington did not nod.
'But then ... my sister ...'
I can't rest until the phoenix in the womb is destroyed. We won't be able to get to Eavesino until tomorrow. It's best if you see Dominic before your mother gets worse.
Exhaling with a snarl, Parrington ponders.
''How about just the two of us, and Anos, to wrap it up? In the unlikely event that the goes out of control, you will be able to handle it. But it's a heavy burden for Gusta...
No. I had less than a year of my mother's life. I have a lot of memories of him.
The key to this memory is in your father's hands.
I'm going to get him to do it, even if it's a little risky.
You can both get hired. ＜Or give up the Red Thread.
Okay, all right. Let's get the two of you in and cuddle up. It's not normal, it will take some time, but there's a good chance it will still relieve the symptoms...
I lift the memory stone that I placed by the bedside.
When Parrington sends his magic power to the red thread, it stretches out in the air and is tied to the memory stone.
I'll try not to put a strain on Gusta, but please don't overdo it. I'm not going to be able to get my hands on it. The only thing you can count on is your mind. If it's done poorly, it will be swallowed up by the memories of the Memory Stone, leaving the body but not the consciousness.
Parrington warned him to nail it.
But Dad smiled his usual nohawk smile and gave a goofy thumbs up.
"Hey, don't worry," he said. I'm just saying," he said. I don't have a sensitivity to pain. More than once I accidentally hit my own hand when I was training with a sword.
Father. It's not something to be proud of.
It's not like I'm going to let Isabella suffer and be intimidated by that.
As if it were obvious, Dad said.
It must be a lot of pain for Parrington to have nailed it all the way through. He's in a lot of pain.
But I'm not worried.
My father is weaker than anyone else now, but he is still stronger than anyone else.
Magic power is sent from Parrington's fingertips.
As if in conjunction with that, the red thread wriggles, passes through my body, and is tied to the source of my body. In the same way, it is nailed to my father's root, and finally to my mother.
Tie his fate together! "Bind his fate, O red thread of an idol.
Divine magical power emanates from the red thread like dancing gold leaf, and the Memory Stone is bound to the fate.
The memories of the past appeared clearly in my mother and father's mind.
