Chapter 58-2 – The One Who Awaits….


What we found beyond the door is a bit far from what we imagine.

Sybilla must have figured out something already as she starts to walk towards the center of the room angrily stomping.

.

[Tha-that guuyy!!!]

.

She arrives in the middle of the room and picks up a piece of paper then… She shouted ‘He got me again!’ as she crumbles the piece of paper and burns it to ashes.

Seeing Sybilla like that, me and Emmy start to follow her in a hurry. 

.

[What’s in the paper, Sybilla?]

[You guys, do you remember the last thing the demon lord had said?]

[‘Come to the bottom levels’ or something along those lines, I think…]

[That’s a bit off. ‘If you’d be able to demonstrate your powers despite being such lowly people of the slums and orphanage then… I shall play with you all for a bit and kill some time.’ is what he exactly said.]

.

Now that she mentions it, that is what it really said.

I wonder but I’m getting bad feelings about this.

.

[That guy is really!!!! This should be the part where we give each other everything we got and everyone is about to get all fired up but– argh!]

[Just what was written in there.]

.

Sybilla then shouted the shocking content written in the piece of paper.

.

.

[It only just said ‘I got tired of waiting so whatever’!]*

.

.

What the… Tired of waiting, was it?

.

We’ve put our lives on the line fighting the modified floor bosses of the lower levels but… We took so much time that he has gotten tired of waiting and just left…!?

.

[Aaaah! Mouuuu! For this goddess Sybilla-chan to be mocked not just once, but twice! This is just so unbelievable but he’s already left the bottom level!]

.

I heard Sybilla’s rants but then… A question pops to mind.

.

[Hey, Sybilla.]

[Now what!]

[…If the demon lord isn’t here in the bottom level… then where else could he be?]

.

Sybilla widens her eyes upon hearing my question then she starts running around to confirm if there’s no other passage in the room before turning to us and speak.

.

[We’re going back!]

.

We nod our heads as we proceed with her decision and leave the Seiris third dungeon on that day just like that.

.

I’m having this thought as we walk back on to the path that where we’ve come from.

We ended up gaining a lot of things from these fights.

However, we were not able to finish things properly in the end.

.

I look at Sybilla’s back as she leads the way for us to get home and hasten my feet keeping the indescribable emotions lingering in my chest.

.

.

.

It’s already night when we return and inform the gatekeeper of everyone’s safety. 

Even at this time, the jewelry shops are still open and nobles are still walking around buying them…. I can see the person from earlier among those people. Rich people really are different.

…One’s birth on wealth, or filth (cheap), huh… I should stop. This isn’t the time for me to think about these things.

.

As the skies succumb to the colors of dusk, the first place Sybilla think of going into is the guild.

.

[We’ve returned! Receptionist-sa… Eh, aren’t you?]

[Oh, you’ve come back!]

.

Sybilla is about to call the guild receptionist until the leader of the guild Gale Thunder suddenly appears.

.

[I waited for you all. Seems you guys are safe.]

[Yeah-, are you perhaps curious if we’ll be able to get back or not?]

[Isn’t that obvious? Everyone else returned already but we all worried the same. As the leader, I should be the one to relieve everyone’s worries. That’s why I decided to stay and tell them whether you’ve made it back safely.]

.

The Gale Thunder’s leader said so before he started laughing. I see, hearing him say that makes it more convincing that he really is a leader of a veteran adventuring party.

.

[I see… But thank goodness. We’ve been worried as well if you guys make it back safely. We’re thankful everyone made it back safe.]

[We ain’t easily fall down on the upper levels you know.]

[I don’t… ah no, nevermind. That’s true, isn’t it? The monster’s numbers have already gone down too by that time so there’s no way you’ll get done in, isn’t it!]

.

Sybilla’s about to talk about the demon lord from there but… she decided to withdraw and not speak about it.

.

We started to talk about different things from there before Sybilla turned to visit the guild master’s room, and after finishing all the remaining tasks to be done, we returned to the inn.

.

.

.

We come back to the room and silently look towards each other.

This fight has brought a lot of different things inside us. 

Me who’s an orphan that was bestowed of the class of the Saint and had become a Dusk Magi. 

And a child who is the same and came from a similar orphanage but was bestowed by the majestic class Holy Knight, Emmy.

And then… The person who’s been with the previous dusk magi and got defeated, Sybilla. 

.

I have no doubt that the feelings inside the three of us are one and the same.

Having Sybilla save the orphan Eve and personally move and protect everyone in the orphanage in Adoria clearly tells just how much she cherishes children. I can clearly see that even the person herself doesn’t tell so.

And me and Emmy who’s grown together in the orphanage cherishes the memories we built in that place.

.

–Vulgar, filthy, and inelegant.

That is how he defined our lives. 

It didn’t bother to look deeper into Emmy who became a Holy Knight.

It only looks at things whether it is extravagant or not.

Knowing all of this just makes me start to boil in anger.

.

But I can’t deny the fact that the demon lord has peculiar abilities outwitting Sybilla twice already. It’s strong enough to avoid my surprise attack from behind without looking back. 

This fact alone tells me that we have to start formulating attacks that it can’t even start to imagine.

.

It’s an enemy we don’t even know what to expect and is an enemy that is by no means easy to deal with. 

.

…But even so, you see.

.

[We’re going to defeat it.] (Sybilla)

[Ofcourse.] (Russell)

[Definitely!] (Emmy)

.

Our hearts and minds are all on the same page.

These short words are enough for everyone to convey what we feel.

.

The worst and strongest demon lord residing in Seiris.

No matter how strong you are or how much you exceed and overcome our preparations.

.

You will go down. By our hands. For sure.
