I was sold at the lowest price C247: The Reality of Defeat / Yuto

 

Ajura was wrecked and no longer moving. I escaped from the cockpit and went outside. I watched the back of Excalibur as it left, stunned.

I was completely defeated. I was reminded of how powerless I was. What is the strongest on the continent……?

But then again, is that Excalibur rider really the Sword Saint? It was the second time I fought him, but my impression was completely different. In the first fight, I felt an incomparably strong man. In this fight, I got the impression that I was fighting a monster from a different dimension.

“Yuto!”

The one who approached me was Rosetta, who, like me, had lost her beloved machine. She seemed to have injured her arm and was using her left arm to protect her right arm.

“Rosetta. Are you alright?”

“What’s with Excalibur’s unbelievable strength…..?”

“I don’t know. Maybe it came back from the afterlife and powered up.”

“If he sold his soul to the King of the Underworld, I can understand why he’s so powerful.”

She said this with a bitter smile.

The morale of the Elysian army dropped drastically after we, the three greats, were defeated. The possibility of total annihilation crossed my mind, but for some reason Excalibur did not continue the battle and returned to his ride carrier. Now that Excalibur was out of the way, we could at least recover our morale and retreat.

I gave instructions to the nearby allied magicrafts and ordered all troops to retreat. The confused allies became calm with my instructions and followed my orders. As Excalibur returned to the ship immediately, the enemy forces, which were at a numerical disadvantage, did not attack aggressively.

“I’m just glad I survived fighting a monster like that.”

Emesis, who was recovered from the wrecked Gaia, seems to be in better health than I expected. He’s not injured and unlike me, he doesn’t seem to be in shock over his defeat.

“So, Yuto. What are you going to do now?”

Rosetta asked me, but I couldn’t answer right away. Instead, Emesis expressed his opinion.

“I don’t think we can stop the Nitro Project. Let’s go join Rafishal faction.”

Don’t you have any pride? You can’t just wag your tail to that shady Rafishal now.”

“You can’t live on pride alone. And with today’s defeat, don’t you feel that times are changing? Monsters like the Nitro Corps and today’s Excalibur are beings that defy conventional wisdom…….Our time is over. I’m not going to be left behind in the old days. I’m going to use Nitro Ludia to be at the center of the next era.”

“I don’t want my body to be altered for the sake of it.”

“Alter? Nitro Ludia does not alter your body. It only releases your hidden power. There’s nothing wrong with drawing out the power you’re not using.”

“……Emesis. Let me ask you something…….You said you were getting close to the Rafishal faction to get information, but you’re really not, are you?”

“You’re a man with good instincts. That’s right, I’ve been with the Rafishal faction since the beginning, and I’ve been on board with this plan without telling you so that I could keep an eye on you.”

“It looks like you’ve been playing me for a fool. Well, I’m not going to say anything about it now that I’ve been defeated like this…….”

“What do you say, Rosetta? Why don’t you use Nitro Ludia to unleash your hidden power? You won’t have to suffer this kind of defeat anymore.”

“So, Nitro Ludia isn’t really going to modify my body?”

“It’s true. It’s not an alteration. It’s just an awakening.”

“I don’t know if I believe that…….”

“You don’t have to trust me. You just need to use me.”

“Yuto. You keep quiet, but what do you think?”

Nitro Ludia. It seems certain that there will be a significant power increase, but……after the defeat, my feelings are weakened, or perhaps I found the story of Emesis fascinating. Becoming the strongest on the continent again…….

“Emesis, you’re sure it’s not a modification, just an awakening? If that’s not true, I’ll never forgive you.”

“It’s true. I’d bet my life on it.”

“……would be nice. I’ll join you in the Nitro Project.”

I feel like I can’t turn back now. But I don’t want to go back to the way I was. It takes strength to maintain a confident self…….

  1. If he was not gonna finish them after breaking their magicraft because he was in a hurry that fine, but then why not just Sim at the cockpit in the first place instead of cutting there head or arms, and its not like he never killed before!!

    This sh*t just keeps getting more and more stupider 😔😔
