First yandere moment. Sort of.
Arisa's eyes couldn't catch up to the speed of Edgar's knives.
Moreover, they cut through the magically strengthened bodies of the majuu in just a moment.
That means it has not only speed, but its power is also at the level of a certain kill.
(——This s.p.a.ce magic is better than I thought.)
Its speed of accelerating things is beyond imagination, and the number of things that can be manipulated is large.
Because the magic is simple, it's also easy to pour lots of magic power into it.
However, the reason that his s.p.a.ce magic is so strong is
Arisa hurried over to Ed, who had fallen due to insufficient magic power.
Then, she thought while carrying Ed on a sled of ice.
(By now, it's been a month since Edgar was summoned to this world. At first, Edgar could barely use magic. However, even if we look down on Edgar's ability, it's still equal to an ordinary magician or more than that. There's been no doubt about that since he was able to deal a fatal wound to the majuus.)
Arisa gently stroked the unconscious Edgar's stupid-looking face.
(——I never heard of someone's magic power growing from almost nothing to this much in just a month. Certainly, I've heard that if you eat the meat of a majuu, your total magic power will rise though. Even so, Edgar's growth speed is abnormal. Is it because Edgar's an otherworlder? Is there something different about Edgar from the people of this world?)
Arisa laughs at Edgar's unprotected sleeping face.
"……Well, something like this doesn't really matter."
Then, she *sutto* hugged Edgar.
"……Right? My cute, cute Edgar?"
——She felt it.
Her muddy, corrupted, feelings.
……Her heart that she definitely can't show to Edgar.
"……I'll protect you. We'll be together forever, okay Edgar?"
Saying that, Arisa lightly kissed Edgar's cheek.
After hunting, I became practically unable to move.
According to Arisa, it was because it was my first real fight, and I used more magic power than I needed too, and ran out of it.
Thus, Arisa put the corpses of the majuus and me on a sled of ice, and made rails of ice to take me all the way back to the laboratory.
(——Arisa, you can use magic like that too……I guess anything's possible with magic.)
When we got back to the laboratory, I placed the majuus' corpse in the nostalgic barn that I was summoned at, and went to bed without eating because I was so tired.
……I wonder if it was because I was tired from my first life and death battle?
I had a dream.
It was a dream of my past.
My old man's a piece of s.h.i.t.
My old man left me and my mother, and disappeared with another woman——only leaving a huge debt.
My sickly mother worked desperately.
In order to raise me. In order to be happy with me.
——Then, she died. It was from overwork.
I didn't notice it until she died. I didn't know that my mother had been suffering so much.
On the verge of death, she said this to me:
——Even if I die, live on without resenting that man.
To the fate of my mother, to my piece of s.h.i.t dad.
And, to myself who couldn't do anything.
I don't know how many times I thought 'if only my old man were here'.
I don't know how many times I thought 'if only my old man never existed'.
I don't know how many times I thought 'someone please help my mother'.
I don't know how many times I thought 'please don't push my mother into a corner more than this'.
No, I just couldn't forgive it, that someone was suffering for my sake.
I'm weak, to the point where I can't help but think it'd be better if I never existed.
I regret it. There should have been something I could've done.
