69 Episode 69

 Inside the house that used to be home to the vampire spawn.

 Four of the spawn that Maifa and I had killed were lined up in the living room.

 Each of the four spawn took the form of a middle-aged man, a woman, a boy, and an old man.
 Each of the four spawn is a middle-aged man, a woman, a boy, and an old man, now in monstrous form, but originally the victims of a vampire attack.

 Standing in front of each of these spawn is Iris.
 As I, Rio, and Maifa look on, Iris gulps and spits in front of the fallen monster.

 I explain to Iris and my three other students.

The vampire spawn is classified as an undead monster, but it is technically 'not dead' when it first becomes a spawn. For the first week or two after they become spawn, they are in a state of mixed positive and negative life force, and their existence is still being determined. ...... Do you understand what I'm saying?

 The three of them shake their heads at my words.
 ...... Well, I guess you're right.

"Uh, I mean... I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll be able to do it.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and the best way to get in touch with your loved ones, please do not hesitate to contact us.

"Oh. It's a shame for a teacher, but I can't use the Ultimate Heal. I have to rely on Iris.

"Oh no, ......! I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to get the best out of it. ...... I know it's not my place to say this, but you're probably trying to do too much on your own. I'm sorry to say this, but you're probably trying to do too much on your own. ....... We want you to rely on us more!

 I got angry.
 Ummm .......

It's not really a teacher-pupil relationship anymore, is it?

"Sir, is it wrong if we ...... don't have a teacher-student relationship?

 In the event that you're looking for the best way to get the most out of your business, you'll want to take a look at the following.

 My heart instantly went out to her.
 I'm not sure what to do.

 This is a great way to make sure that you get the most out of your time with your family and friends.

 I'm not sure what to make of this, but I think it's a good idea.

 No, no, no, now I'm confused.
 This is a test of my adult power.

"Oh, uh, Iris... "Oh, uh, Mr. Iris and..." "Be a little careful when you say that to a man, okay? They'll get the wrong idea, you know?

 When I said that, Iris gave me a puzzled look.

 Then he made a little gesture of consideration, looked down, let his gaze wander from place to place, and then said the following.

...... I wouldn't say something like this unless I was dealing with a teacher.

 I'm not sure what to say.
 A critical hit to my chest from Iris' heartfelt blow.

 Stop it!
 I'm not sure what to do.

 I mean, before that, this is a very surreal conversation to have in front of a line of fallen vampire spawn.
 Let's get back to it.

"Okay, Iris. We'll talk about it another time, okay? Let's just do the therapy now, okay?

"Bu......, I understand.

 I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.

 I'm sure you'll agree.

I'm not sure what to make of it.

"...... Almost ready to break the stronghold? ...... Let's keep attacking. ...... If any one of us can break through, maybe we can start an avalanche.

All right. I'm going to have to start attacking too. You don't have to be shy about it, do you?

 I don't know, but they were discussing it in a somewhat scary way.

 Anyway, it was Iris's magic.

 Iris kneels down in front of one of the lying vampire spawn, clasps her hands in front of her chest as if in prayer, and closes her eyelids.

 After a moment, Iris's entire body glows with a faint but powerful magical glow.

 She places her hands on the chest of the spawn in front of her.
 Then, in a beautiful yet brave voice, she chanted the spell.

[Ultimate Heal]!

 A strong light appeared in Iris' hands and spread throughout Spawn's body.
 The light enveloped Spawn's entire body...

 As the light faded, Spawn's pale skin turned a healthy color, and his sharp fangs and claws returned to their human-like appearance.

 I walked over and opened the eyes of the spawn victim, but what I saw were not the red eyes of a monster, but human eyes.

 Of course, the damage done by the spawn had been healed.

 Incidentally, the victim has not regained consciousness yet, but his chest is rising and falling healthily.
 I'm sure he'll wake up in a while.

Huh. ...... Huh. ....... I got it. ......?

"...... great. I was a ...... monster, but now I'm really human again. It's like a miracle. ......

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find it on the web.

"...... Hey bro. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea. It's not just the spawn, but also the vampire itself?

 Rio asks me that question.
 I felt a little unnatural at the question, but I ignored it for the moment and answered.

"Yeah, the conditions are the same for the master vampire. Depending on how long it's been since you became a vampire, there's a good chance that you can be resurrected as a human if your existence is not yet confirmed as undead. I'm not sure how much time has passed since it was turned into an undead being.

"I see. ......

 I'm not sure what to make of that.
 I was concerned about that, but for now, I'll just deal with things one at a time.

 I walked over to Iris and hugged her tightly.

I walked over to Iris and hugged her tightly. You just saved a life that should have been lost. That's really great. "Iris, I know it's hard with the amount of magic you've consumed, but can you do it for the other three?

The teacher praised me a lot. ...... I'm so happy. ....... Yes, sir. I'll do my best. I'll do my best. I'm not afraid of this at all.

 This is the first time I've ever seen such a thing.

 Then Iris gave the second and third [Ultimate Heal].

 As a result, up to three of the four spawned victims were able to return to healthy human form.

 However, Iris's wear and tear had become noticeably greater by that stage.

"Haha ...... haha ...... oh, and ...... one more .......

 Just as I was about to head for the last one, Iris swayed and nearly fell.

 I rushed over to her and hugged her delicate body.

I'm sure you'll be fine. ...... I'll see you tomorrow for the other one? Maybe a day or so will still be okay. ......

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand that there is no basis for my words as I say this.

 A vampire spawn can be saved by Ultimate Heal within a week or two of the victim becoming a spawn.

 However, we don't know exactly how long it has been since the victim in front of us was spawned, and the very rough limit of "one or two weeks" is hard to be certain.
 This is just the level of such research results.

 Therefore, I should be very serious and ask Iris to work hard for one more person.

 No, I think I should retract my previous statement and let Iris do it now.
 I thought about it again, but...

 Just then, Iris, who was being supported in my arms, started to say something like this.

"Um, sir ....... If I do my best for one more person, can I get a ...... reward?

 When I heard this, I hesitated for a moment, but then nodded widely.

I'm sure you'll agree. If there is anything I can do for you, I will do it.

 I'm in a situation where I need to force my student to work hard.
 If he is willing to work hard for a reward, then any request is cheap.

 I'll do anything you want, no matter how absurd.
 I was ready to do anything...

I was ready to do that, but... "Well, I ...... would like to sleep in the same bed with you at night.

What's ......?

 I'm sure you're not the only one.

 Iris whispered to me in a feverish manner.

She whispered to me, "Haha ...... I'm a bad boy, aren't I ....... I'm trying to get you in trouble. But I want a reward for my ...... hard work. ......?

"Oh, yeah. ...... Okay, okay. I promise.

 I was confused, but I had no choice but to say so.

 I had a feeling that something was wrong, but right now, the most important thing was human life.

 We'll figure out the rest later.
 Right now, we should do what we can to make Iris work hard.

 And when Iris heard my reply, she said, "All right! and stood up with renewed vigor.

 Then, with all her might, she went to the last one and used [Ultimate Heal], after which Iris became exhausted and fell asleep.

 But all four of the vampire spawn victims were now healed.
 Nice work, Iris.

 I picked up my student, who had used up all her strength, and whispered a small "good job" to her.

 The little saint who had saved four lives buried her face in my chest and breathed soundly in her sleep.
