I was sold at the lowest price C178: Inhuman / Yuki
The white Guardian seemed to have sustained very little damage despite being trapped under so much debris.
It seemed that I had already defeated all the normal Guardians except the white one, and now the only one in front of me was that powerful enemy. The white guardian and I stared at each other for a while, and then, out of nowhere, both of us moved.
The Guardian’s fangs snatch at my shoulder, and that’s all it takes for the parts of my shoulder to be torn off and blown away. My rapier attack also snatched the Guardian’s leg. But it seems as if I didn’t do any damage.
The Guardian leapt again as soon as it landed and pounced on me, aiming for my back. I avoided the attack with a forward roll and threw a chain weight to attack. The chain weight gouged out the ground where the Guardian was but the Guardian had already jumped up into the air.
It would be impossible to move quickly in the air, I must seize the opportunity. With all my strength, I unleashed a desperate blow with my rapier. However, the Guardian undulated in the air and changed its stance, catching the rapier attack with its fangs.
The Guardian kicked Elvira in the leg, spun her around in midair and landed on his feet. The recoil from the leg kick sent her tumbling backwards. At the same time, with a quick movement, the Guardian climbed on top of Elvira and then, of course, it came to bite me in the cockpit.
“No, no, no!”
The monitor in front of me, which was showing the outside scenery, cracked with a buzzing sound.
I’m screwed…….I’m going to die here…….
There was a loud cracking sound, and the hatch was ripped off. The Guardian spat the bitten off hatch out to the side and stared at me.
What, you’re not going to……finish me off?
It stared at me for a while, but the Guardian refused to take any further action. It could have easily bitten me to death if it wanted to, but for some reason, it didn’t try to do so.
“What’s wrong with you? You’re not going to kill me?”
He stared at me for a long time and I was so terrified that I couldn’t help but call out to him. After a few moments of silence, to my surprise, the Guardian spoke up.
“You are what is called a woman…….”
I was surprised because I didn’t expect him to speak. When I was too startled to reply immediately, he asked me again as if to urge me. “Answer me! Are you a woman?”
Thinking it would be bad if I offended him, I hurriedly answered.
“Yes, I’m a human woman.”
“Do all women have the same appearance as you?”
“Broadly speaking, they all look alike, but when you look at the details of their faces, their hair, their skin color, their skeletons, they are all different.”
“So there are no women exactly like you?”
“Yes, there is no such thing as a woman who looks exactly like me.”
I felt weird answering that, but the Guardian, satisfied with my answer, got off of Elvira and stepped back a little.
“My heart is burning when I look at you…….I’ve become ridiculously attached to you. What am I supposed to do with this feeling?……Tell me, what am I supposed to do with you?”
I was so surprised that I couldn’t even speak…….It seems that the Guardian has taken a liking to me. I’m not sure how to respond to these unexpected words. I’ve been blessed with good looks, so I’m used to this kind of confession, but I never thought I’d hear such words from a non-human.
“I’m glad you feel that way, but I’m a human woman. I can’t reciprocate those feelings.”
I made it a point to answer confessions clearly. I’ve always had a crush on someone, and I know that an insinuating attitude would hurt them.
“No! No! I can’t handle this! I don’t care if you’re human and I’m a Guardian! Be mine, human girl!”
“You can’t say such words! Besides, I already have a man in my life! I will never be yours, Guardian or not!”
“‘Gosh……you just can’t?’
“Yes, I’m sorry, absolutely not!”
The Guardian dropped his head. He seemed to be quite depressed but I didn’t say anything.
Then, the guardian looked up vigorously as if he had thought of something. And then he came closer to me. If it’s not mine, then…No wonder I thought that, I was ready to die.
“Then you can at least make…..me yours.”
“What do you mean by that?”
“Be my master……human woman…….”
It was an outrageous suggestion, but I agreed to it if it would make him feel better.
