I was sold at the lowest price C174: To Release the Seal / Yuki
When I returned to the ride carrier with Rafishal, the Great Sage, I was told what to do next.
“I’m going to break the other two seals here.”
Rafishal replied when Dr. Brule asked him what he was going to do.
“Master Rafishal, if you break the other two seals, the giant beast will be resurrected……”
Dr. Brule advised Rafishal in an agitated manner. But the Great Sage said without moving an eyebrow.
“What’s wrong with that? Originally, giant beasts were the inhabitants of this world. They’ve been sealed away for the convenience of one race, the humans. Don’t you think that the best way to bring back the natural form of this world is to unseal the behemoths?”
“However, the weakened humans now have no power to restrain the resurrected giant beasts…….”
“If we are such a weak race, we should be destroyed!”
Rafishal said in a very strong tone.
“I understand. Your words are all that matters to us, the Messiah clan. Let’s proceed with breaking the seals.”
“Hmm, you understand, but rest assured, I will bring back a strong human race, so strong that they will not fear the giant beasts.”
“So you’re going to revive technologies like Nitro-Ludia?”
“Yes, I’m going to raise the average Ludia value exponentially. I will also revive powerful magicrafts.”
I’m not sure what the Great Sage Rafishal is trying to do, but Mary’s eyebrows narrowed in thought when she heard him speak.
If we don’t revive the giant beasts, we won’t need that kind of power……. But the only ones who were questioning this were Mary and I. Rafishal was in complete control of the survey team, and his words left no one in any doubt.
“Master Rafishal, could you please apply the first of your Ludia value enhancements to this Enrique!”
Enrique, who I thought was one of us, was a member of the Messiah clan. When Rafishal woke up safely and came back, he shed tears of joy. In addition, all the riders accompanying us seemed to be under the control of the Messiah clan, and in the end, Mary and I were the only ones who were not under the control of the Messiah clan in this expedition. In the first place, the plan for the research team itself seemed to be just one of the processes of the Messiah clan, and my participation seemed to be irregular.
“Yes, of course, the first enhancement must be done on the riders of the Messiah clan. As soon as they are ready, I will strengthen them.”
“Thank you for your blessings!”
Enrique looks really happy. Mary’s expression tugged at the sight of it.
“I didn’t know that Enrique was a member of the Messiah clan…….”
“The other riders seem to be members of the Messiah family. We can’t do anything on our own…….”
“I know, we just have to follow them and do something about it when we get back home.”
“But Prince Amuno is also a member of the Messiah family, and he’s a powerful military leader with the title of general, isn’t he?”
“Well, we may have to go directly to the Emperor.”
“There’s no point in saying anything to the emperor, the Messiah family has already taken control of the center of the empire.”
Brule tells us this after hearing me and Mary whispering in private.
“I think it’s my duty to report back……”
“Yes, you soldiers may have such an obligation, so that’s fine, you are free to report to the Emperor when you return.”
He really doesn’t seem to care about us reporting to the Emperor.
A short time later, Brule instructed me to go out.
“Is that a request or an order?”
“Neither. It’s inevitable. If we don’t go, this ride carrier will be destroyed and you won’t be able to return to your country.”
“What do you mean……?”
“When we broke Master Rafishal’s seal, it triggered the defense system of the ruins, and there are many Guardians heading this way.”
“Why don’t you use the power of the Great Sage Rafishal to do something about it?”
Mary says sarcastically to Dr. Brule.
“Master Rafishal’s power is there to change the world, not to be used for trivial things like this.”
“So…..a situation where your life is in danger is trivial.”
“Huh, so are you going out? Or would you rather die trying?”
“I’m sorry, but if I’m going to commit suicide, it’s going to be with the man I love. I’m not going to do it with some crazy scholar I don’t understand.”
With that, Mary headed for the hangar. I agree with Mary, I am not going to self-destruct with some weird Great Sage and his fanatics. I followed Mary to the hangar.
