CCM 088 – Yo, What Savior, Exactly


I immediately check my body first and foremost.

.

My hands look a bit transparent.

Not to mention my hands, but my whole appearance seems rather opaque.

.

I guess… I became an astral projection on the process of tracing Jack back, huh.

.

It’s the same form the Goddess and the original sword saint had when I met them.

.

Well, I just took a bet for whatever happens earlier though.

I guess it’s pushing too much to think that my whole body would be able to fly all the way in here.

.

Let’s see. I am now currently an astral projection.

An existence derived when your consciousness separates from your physical form.

.

–Well, this will do.

As long as I can beat the guy in front of me, then it doesn’t matter.

.

[Arios Makuba…!! H-how could you…!?]

.

And that man, the 3rd seat of the terrorist group SoA, Jack Iregg, steps back from me with a pale face.

.

I observe my surroundings as I lower my voice in response.

.

[Well…I just used my skill and things happened.]

[How could just things happen!? How could it be possible without the shadow stone!? That’s just too absurd on so many levels!]

.

No, no, no, no.

I don’t think it’s really that surprising when you yourself have been using an astral.

.

Speaking of surprises, now this place wins by large margins.

.

[Now I understand… That’s why the SoA’s main base can’t be found no matter where, huh….]

.

The place where I am now, to the place where Jack Iregg’s main body hides, it’s —

.

[Who could have guessed… You were hiding inside the Arceus Kingdom’s Royal Palace all this time.]

.

Oh yeah, Rei was just suspecting the SoA’s possible connection with Prince Leafa just earlier, huh.

.

If it’s true that the kingdom is actually stealthily working in cooperation with SoA… Things are getting trickier than it originally seemed.

.

What’s more, if the information that the terrorists are actually in cohots with this kingdom’s leadership reaches out to the public, things stopping in just a panic is the best thing the leaders’ of this kingdom could ever dream.

.

Further…

There’s something else I notice.

.

There are capsules all over the room where we are currently standing and each one of them has a girl inside. It is filled with green liquid but it does not hinder the girls’ breathing as they seem to be peacefully sleeping in it. 

.

Perhaps… is this the place where they are producing the homunculi…?

.

[…Now then, why don’t you tell me more about this place.]

.

I glare at the person in front of me as chilly as I could ever be.

.

[You bunch… just what are you all trying to do with this kingdom and its citizens…]

[Ha! Isn’t it obvious? As our name represents, we’re here to save this kingdom of Arceus!]

[Ha…?]

[Don’t you feel it too? The citizens of this kingdom are truly rotten. They drown themselves with power and wealth and do not hesitate to trample on others for their own sakes. The glorious kingdom of Arceus — it is now nothing but a fragment of the past!]

[….]

.

I take a moment to close my eyes and look back to the interactions I had with the citizens of this kingdom.

.

The people of this country condemn others just because they have failskills.

A father who decisively abandons his own flesh and blood for his own goals.

An orphan who was tolerated to rampage as he so desired.

And… the citizens who immediately went to turncoat and cheered for me when I defeated Dudley.

.

I relish these moments as I open my eyes once again and ask in return, not affirming nor denying the words Jack had spoken.

.

[…So you guys want to change it. You’re saying that the SoA’s goal is to change the society that’s now completely rotten as you see it.]

[Exactly. Otherwise, it will only take a matter of time before the neighboring kingdoms devour this country.]

.

…How absurd.

That’s too much of a leap right there.

.

[And Arios, aren’t you one of the victims of this country’s rottenness too? You must have suffered after getting banished by your own family.]

[……..]

[Let’s put your skills into use. Why don’t you join—]

[No thanks.]

.

There’s no need for me to listen to the rest of his words as I flat out reject him.

.

[It sure was painful but… It allowed me to realize how blessed I am meeting Kaya, Rei, Mary, and a lot of other people… I will not betray nor turn my back towards their feelings and expectations.]

.

Skill Activate, Cheat Code Manipulation.

Fire Attribute Magic – All Use

.

I raise my hand towards Jack and finally release the feelings I bottled up listening to every word that came out from his mouth.

.

[You guys are not trying to save anything at all. At the end, you are just terrorists who are willing to commit all kinds of atrocities to accomplish your goals… and that… I will stop all of it with all the power I have!!]

[Ha! This is why I hate dealing with the youngsters… You don’t understand sh*t but you still run your mouth…!]

.

Jack’s body releases an eerie aura as his eyes change its colors like it’s filled with blood.

.

[I am Jack Iregg. The 3rd Seat of SoA… You shall bow down your head as your body experiences first hand what true strength really is!!]

    Might want to fix that typo, i think you meant to say atrocities instead.
