After the battle was over, we took Touki-Housae back to the castle.
From now on, Touki-Housae will be in the castle's prison. At least until the game between Princess Sylvia and the Ten Sages is over.
That's it for me, Lysette, Yukino, and Prim.
But before returning to the frontier, I decided to ask Touki-Houce about the reincarnation.
At first, he didn't answer my question.
But after I took the pendant from him, he suddenly started to panic...
"Wait! Let's negotiate! I'll lend you my power. Just give it back!
You just tried to break it yourself.
This is a small hut in the castle.
It's used to lock up criminals and the like.
He's sitting in a chair with his hands tied behind his back with chains. Yukino is holding the chair and his hands together with ice, just in case.
By the way, there's just me and Yukino here.
General Hulka is outside the hut, ready to help us in case of emergency.
Let's make this quick. If you destroy this, you can be reborn. But I can't let you take it. Why is that?
It's not like ...... can't use its power without it, is it? This is a reincarnation-related item that records your contribution .......
I'm also a hero, chosen by the goddess ....... I'm not going to tell you my secret easily.
I know. I know the feeling.
......, is that right?
Yeah. Judging from your attitude, this pendant is an item that connects you to the Goddess. In other words, it's a key (log generator) that connects you to higher beings or the Akashic Records and allows you to exchange life information (anima). In the past, this would have been the Keruvim sign that was under the bandage on my right arm. When I lost that, I lost myself as the avenger of the Goddess, and became a normal human.
I've been in "High King of the Deformed" mode for too long, and I'm starting to feel like I'm going to get sick again.
Let's finish ...... quickly before it gets out of control.
I'm not sure what to do with it.
"...... Just give it back.
Touki-Housset stared at me.
If I die now, I'm dead!
"...... I know what it's like.
I'm not kidding. You can't fight in another world without a guarantee of reincarnation. ......
No matter what you say.
I'm sure you're not the only one. I'm not sure if it's the same for Lisette and Haruka.
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.
"............ I am a hero chosen by the goddess. I am a hero chosen by the goddess ...... to quell this turbulent world .......
After saying that, Touki-Housset began to talk about the system of reincarnation little by little.
The pendant is a medium to record how much you have contributed to quell the turbulent world. The pendants come in a variety of shapes and forms, and it is unknown what kind of crystalline form other reincarnations have.
When the pendant is broken, the reincarnated person can no longer exist in this world and will disappear.
The pendant is a marker for the goddess to find him, and he is said to return to the original world (one year ago) after his disappearance.
The pendant is like a marker for the goddess to find him, and if he dies without it, there is no guarantee of reincarnation.
Finally, he added, "Give me back the pendant, you bastard.
Well, that's pretty much what I thought.
That's about all I know about the reincarnation.
All that's left is the matter of negotiations and dealings between the Kittle family and the Ten Sages. I heard that you haven't found them yet, my lord.
The information that Touki-Housae and the others have can be used to make a deal with the Ten Wise Men.
I'll give the pendant for reincarnation to General Hulka.
When you've finished gathering information, ask Touki-Housae what he wants, and either destroy it or release it in your custody.
I'm done talking to you. General Hurka.
I called out to the doorway.
I heard a voice say, "Yes, sir," and a blonde-haired Mr. Hulka appeared.
I'd like to ask you if you have any bandages? A clean cloth to bind the wound.
Of course I do. Of course we do. It is the basic equipment of a warrior.
"Of course we do," said Hulka, taking out a long, thin cloth from his pocket.
It's a cotton bandage. It's cheap, but it'll bind a wound.
Thank you. Keep an eye on this one. And this too.
I gave the pendant to Hulka and left the hut.
I made sure there was no one around and activated the Naming Breath skill.
All I need is the power to block Touki-Housset's ability.
If you want to "enchant" this "cotton bandage"...
...... "Naming Breath" - "Cotton Bandage" is now "Mourning Cotton Bandage". Accept the king's naming.
The bandage glowed in my hand.
Go back to Touki-Housset, wrap this bandage around his arm...
It's hard to bind with a chain.
Well, it's reinforced, so I can just wrap it around his wrist.
Watch this: ...... I'm going to get you out of here soon: ......
Toki-Hoce looked over his shoulder and smiled.
His hands are wriggling in the ice that Yukino has made. He can barely move in the ice.
Then, I thought, carefully wrap a 'mourning cotton bandage' around it.
The next time I see you will be your last. The next time I see you will be the end of you. My power is not like this yet...
The next time I see you, you'll be at your end.
What's going on? It's cold! I'm sure you're not the only one. What the ...... hell are you doing? I can't even get my hands on ...... this .......
I'm not sure what to do.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
The word "mourning" means "to lose. The word "mourning" has the meaning of "loss.
The meaning of "seal" is literally "seal" or "close".
That's why this bandage is a "bandage that seals with a piece of cotton that can be lost.
Of course, it's reinforced and sealed, so it can't be untied easily.
As long as he is inside the ward, the effect of the ability blocker will continue.
"............ Wait a minute. What's going to happen to me now that I'm in ......?
"That's for the people of this world to decide.
But I'll tell you what, when I'm done negotiating with the Ten Sages, they'll listen to your wishes. If you want to go back to your world, you can have the pendant broken. If you want to stay in this world, ...... we can talk about it then.
"............ can't win.
"You can't win." Touki-Housset nodded dejectedly.
It's a mistake to invade ...... where you are. ............ The High King of Deformity - The Demon Dragon King Shouma ......
It might have been a declaration of defeat.
Even though Yukino lifted the ice magic, Touki-Housset did not try to resist anymore.
The rest is up to the people of this world.
Now, let's go back to the inn and take a rest. Yukino.
Yes, sir. Shoma-san.
Take care of the rest. This is General Hurka.
Thank you very much for ............ and .......
As Yukino and I left the hut, General Hulka came to the doorway and bowed.
I'm sure Princess Renesmee and Princess Sylvia will make a formal thank you later. This is the best I can do for now. Thank you very much.
As for me, as long as the neighborhood is quiet, that's all that matters.
I can't wait to get home and get out of 'High King Mode'.
Let me rest in the castle for the day and return to the frontier tomorrow morning.
Let's go. Yukino.
"Come on, Yukino." "......, come on.
Yukino looks rather sleepy.
She's worked very hard in this battle. She must be tired.
He also helped me with the Zanjinshijo and drew the magic circle.
He also used a large scale ice magic to stop the enemy soldiers from moving in the castle that he built with the Soldier of Will.
It was also thanks to Yukino that I was able to stop Touki-Houce.
I'd like to thank you for your ...... help.
The only thing I can do is .......
In fact, Yukino's true master, ...... the Organic Dragon King, is me.
Yukino turns around, shaking her light blue hair.
I didn't know that. I hadn't noticed that at all. I've never known that Shoma-san was my new master, the O-Ganigoku Dragon-King.
You're not going to believe this.
"Yes, it was a total disaster. Oh, my God.
You don't think I was in junior high when I met you and now I'm in Alaska, do you? Of course, I'm not asking you to believe me. We'll talk about it when you get home.
What should I do? I can't believe my real father is so close to me.
How long have you known?
Why now, Shoma?
I've put Yukino through a lot this time. I got tired of her hiding my identity from me.
I'm surprised you thought you could hide your true identity. My Lord.
Because it's been over ten years since I've seen you, and you've changed.
Is that why you've been hiding?
Yeah. I didn't want to ruin Yukino's dream.
Because it's been more than ten years, and you've changed your appearance, you've grown up?
And what about you?
I'm a calm, mature adult.
I don't think a sober, mature adult can adapt to this turbulent world. They either panic and die from their recklessness, or they get carried away by their abilities and go out of control, like Touki Hounsou. It's impossible to call someone like Shoma-san, who can live a calm life while using his abilities, a 'calm and mature member of society'.
Is that so?
Yes, it is.
There's something I want to tell you.
I'm done with the "second childhood disease.
But sooner or later, you'll be able to play the Organic Dragon King ....... No, you'll be able to play the Demon Dragon King. I'm sure.
What a nasty thing to say.
By the way, when did I realize that Shoma-san was the True Lord?
When do you think?
When I awakened as a demon?
Right after I came to Hazama Village, when I had a fever and was having nightmares.
It's probably because I said things like "MAGI" and "Absolute Sight" to exorcise my nightmares. ......
And also because the hand I was holding in my dream was bigger than the True Lord I met at the intersection.
From junior high school?
Yes. That's why I said it was Shoma's hand.
Come on, my Lord. Let's do our best to calm this turbulent world.
For peace on the frontier.
That's good. Hmm.
What's with the staring? You're staring at me.
I'm just happy that my dream came true.
Yukino shook her light blue hair and said.
I've always wanted to have a talk like this with the True Lord.
With an embarrassed smile, she pulled my hand and walked away.
If you can see this kind of face, then maybe my being a chuunibyou in the original world had some meaning. .......
I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.
