It was a warm spring night when I met my "true master".
I remember the cherry blossoms ...... were in bloom, light pink and very beautiful.
I also remember that I thought at that time that it was a good time to meet my end.
Since I was a little girl, I have been in and out of hospitals because of my physical weakness.
I never went to school much.
I never had any friends.
It wasn't until the year before that I realized I wasn't going to live very long.
I don't want to go into the details, but I was told that one of my organs was not working properly and even if I was treated, I would probably only live another year and a half.
At that time, I thought to myself.
I wondered what I was living for. ......
I'm just going to be a burden to my family, so I thought it would be better to just die.
So, that night when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom, I slipped out of the hospital.
I was going to die just like that.
There were big cars ...... running around in my world, so I thought it would be better if I got run over by one.
But when the time came, I couldn't make up my mind, so I kept crossing and stopping at different crosswalks.
When I was crossing the tenth crosswalk, I suddenly couldn't walk.
I was anemic.
I guess my body was at its limit.
Oh, thank God. I thought. If it was anemia, it wasn't my fault.
It could have ended here.
And then a big car pulled up...
"Awaken the dragon's power... double it... no, quadruple it! Awaken the dragon's power... double it, quadruple it... infuse my body with mana and awaken my true abilities.
I heard such a cry...
When I came to my senses, I found myself rolling on the ground in the arms of a boy I didn't know.
It wasn't until later that I realized that he had pulled me, held me, and rolled me across the street.
I saw him. He was flying in the air at that time.
...... What? You think you saw him wrong?
You could be right. He was fluffy from the heat.
...... I felt like my body was floating and time had stopped.
Maybe I was flying in the air. It was such a mysterious event.
He picked me up and moved me to the sidewalk.
I thought I was dreaming ...... at that moment.
He looked so strange ...... and cool. He was wearing a black coat and had a bandage on his left hand. On his right hand was a bracelet. Some of them were silver and some had black stones on them. On his head, he is wearing a hat. But on his forehead is a bandage. I thought it was nice that it was sticking out a little and swaying in the wind.
"Are you okay?
He said, "Yes. It's just anemia.
He shook his head.
I couldn't help but avert my gaze.
I thought he had found out that I wanted to die.
But then he said.
"An army of darkness is about to rise from the eighth level of Grief Hell at the bottom of the earth. Its spies are trying to harm people. The lowest of them all, the dark army, has tied your feet. I'm sorry ...... if I hadn't figured it out sooner. ......
That's not what I meant. I ......
I tried to shake my head, but stopped myself.
I was about to shake my head, but stopped myself. He was staring into the empty darkness, and his eyes were shining strangely.
Perhaps he knew about this other world.
Because after that, he said to me.
"The war against the demons is coming. If we met here, then maybe you are the one who will take up the sword with me. I'm proud to have saved your life .......
Do you understand me, Lisette and Haruka?
Of course you do. You want to applaud, don't you? Clap, clap, clap.
My True Lord knew I'd be reincarnated into another world.
Otherwise, there's no way he could have said something like that. You see...
He carried me straight to the bus stop.
I couldn't move, so he laid me on a bench at the bus stop and called my family on his cell phone.
I asked him.
"Why are you being so kind to me?
"...... if my abilities had been awakened earlier, I would have been able to prevent .........
I didn't understand what he meant.
He seemed to feel a great deal of responsibility.
Then he continued.
"When the time comes, you'll understand the meaning of my words. Even if you don't realize it at the time, later you'll realize, 'Oh, that's what he meant.
What? What is it, Shoma-san?
Huh, is that a cold word? It's a cold word that can be taken as ...... anything?
That's a funny thing to say, Mr. Shoma.
I'm sure you're not the only one.
Besides, that man said this at the end and left.
"Farewell. If you are one who will take up the sword with me, ...... we will meet again in the battle beyond life and death. My name is 'The Organic Dragon King'!
I've just been reincarnated and I'm facing a new battle.
Lysette-san and Haruka-san understand, don't they?
They're nodding their heads yes.
Thank you very much.
I think you two will be good friends.
What? "You can stop using honorifics"? I'll do that when I get used to it.
And me, then?
After he left, his family came to pick me up in their car.
They all wanted to thank the person who saved me.
However, they said that the contact to the family was set to "blocked".
She said, "The dark forces are approaching. She said, "Dark forces are approaching. We can't involve them.
We had no choice but to go back to the hospital, thanking her.
Of course, my family was very angry with me.
But my father, mother, and sister all became puzzled and stopped being angry.
It was because I, who had been looking so gloomy for a long time, had become able to smile honestly.
After she helped me, ...... I didn't care about my illness anymore. There are people who believe in the unseen and are fighting hard against it, so I thought I should follow her example and live the same way.
I decided to put on bandages first. On my left arm and forehead.
Since it was a hospital, they were easy to get.
Then I asked my sister to do my hair and share the ribbon.
I hadn't been dressing up since I was in the hospital, so she was very happy to see me.
When I showed her the coat of arms I had drawn on my right hand with a water-based pen, she looked at me delicately.
Also, they took away my skull ribbon. They said it was too ominous for the hospital.
And I wore a pitch-black elimaki...
It wasn't very colorful, so I changed it to a light blue scarf...
I put a plastic ring on my left hand and promised to take it off when I went to see the doctor.
Yukino-Cloudy-Dragonchild, the Ice Witch, is complete.
Her name is Yukino, after all. I guess the image is ice.
Thus, having transformed into a witch who fights demons, I decided to move around aggressively. There might be dead spirits in the hospital. There might be a wyvern hiding on the roof. I thought that even though I was inexperienced, I should be able to find the demons lurking in the hospital.
I have to wake up soon and catch up with him. If I'm the one who takes up the sword. Someday I'll meet him again. ...... Someday I'll be able to thank him... and serve him.
My family was happy that I was able to walk ...... slowly around the hospital grounds.
The doctors told me to move my body as much as I could.
Since then, I have been enjoying every day.
You never know where evil will come from.
My family, though my sister was a bit bitter about it, began to accompany me on my quest.
After spending many happy days like this...
From Shoma's point of view...
I had such a fun life... ......
I was holding my head under the tree while listening to Yukino's story.
I'm not sure what to say, but I'm not sure what to do.
Did I say such a thing back then? No, I did, but...
I don't remember why I said it or what it was about anymore. .......
...... I knew that girl was Yukino. .......
But it made my day .......
So what was the point of what I did?
Healthier and mentally brighter, what happened to Yukino ......?
Could it be that you miraculously recovered and...?
I died a year later, just like the doctor said.
...... That's right.
That's what Yukino's here for, isn't it?
I tried to fight the demon to the end, but my family saw me off with a smile. I thanked my family. "Thank you, father. Mom. Thank you, father. Thank you, mother. Thank you, sister. Thank you, ......, for accompanying me in my fight against the demon. ...... And... ...
"...... Yukino-san." "...... Yukino......-chan.
Lysette and Haruka are both in tears.
I'm not sure what to do. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll do fine.
No, you'll get your parents in trouble. ......
No, he was smiling. No, they were laughing. They said it was all right as long as Yukino was smiling.
...... They are big parents with big vessels.
I'm not sure what to make of that. I was told that I could have any hair color I wanted, so I went light blue to look like an ice witch. I also changed my skills to ice. The rest is as I told you before.
Yukino then concluded her story.
So, it is thanks to her that I was able to recover and say goodbye to my family with a smile. That's why, for me in my previous life, she is the 'true Lord' whom I should respect. Of course, also in this world.
But ...... Yukino is talking normally, isn't she? It's not like she's a witch. ......
She's not dressed like a chuunibyou, is she? You'll be able to find a lot more information on this site.
It's not like she's a witch. I don't care what you look like. We need to talk and cooperate with the people of the other world, and it's better to dress in a way that makes it easier to fight.
And I want to look cute when I meet my true master.
No, I don't know if he's in this world. ......
My True Lord taught me about the battle between life and death. That means that he must have known about this world. In other words, he must be the same as me, or he must have come to this world in some way. If not, they wouldn't be talking about a "battle beyond life and death. ......!
Yes, ......, theoretically, that's true.
There are some coincidences in the world,......, and I'm not sure what they are.
I'm sure you're not the only one.
"......Aniue-sama and ......well, ......that......
Oh. I know what you mean.
Lysette and Haruka. You're staring at me.
They both seem to have realized that Yukino and I are from the same world.
Well ...... what should I do.
No, really, what should I do? .......
I'm the one Yukino's looking for, the true master. That's for sure.
But she only knows me from my junior high school days, and now I'm in Alaska.
If she realizes that the True Lord has changed, she might be so shocked that she won't be able to fight ....... Her skills are based on the fact that she imitated me and became an Ice Witch.
The best way to deal with this is to use ....... How about disillusioning her?
Tell them that the Organic Dragon King is neither an alien nor someone who knows the secrets of the world.
It would be less shocking if he revealed himself after that.
What is it? Mr. Shoma.
Yukino's voice comes back from behind the steam.
"Maybe this 'Organic Dragon King' was just a ...... half-wit. ......?
"Why is that?
...... It's hard for a former chuunibyou to deny his chuunibyou. .......
I can't think of anything off the top of my head. ...... I can't help it. I'll use a line that was once said to me.
Remember ...... what people used to say about me when I was a junior high school student? Whenever I mentioned an alien ability or setting, people would say...
"In this world, there are no demons to defeat, no armies of darkness, no battles that transcend life and death.
"There is, isn't there?
"Yes, there is. Brother Shoma.
Yes, there is. Yes, brother.
You're right. Yukino, you've been reincarnated. .......
It's a battle beyond life and death, and the demons in this world are "demons to be defeated" and "armies of darkness". ...... In other words, what I said in my junior high school days ended up being true. I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you.
The only thing I could do was to make Yukino laugh in her previous life.
...... Well, that's okay.
I'm not in a hurry, and I have time.
I'll try to clear up Yukino's misunderstanding little by little.
There's no doubt that Yukino is a friend who can help us through this turbulent world. That's enough for now.
I'm leaving now. Brother Shoma.
It's your turn to come in.
Not me. Hey, Yukino.
There's a pause, and then Yukino's voice comes back.
She seems a little angry.
"I'll tell the harpies about Yukino's True Lord. If there's any gossip, they'll let me know.
Yes! Thank you very much.
So, I have a question for you: .......
"What does Yukino plan to do when he meets the True Lord of ......?
There was a popping sound.
".................. That's a secret.
This is a great way to make sure you are getting the most out of your time with us.
