The Struggle of a Weak Aristocrat in a Different World C107: Coming in late
“Hey. You’re giving me a hard time.”
I turned around to see the two of them coming towards me. Oh no. What can I do to escape?
I’ve thrown my sword and I can’t fight. I looked for a way to escape, but I was surrounded from three sides, and I didn’t think I could get away.
Even though it was the warm season, the air felt cold and sharp, like it was ripping at my skin. As the men stepped toward me, the air rushed out of my lungs and I struggled.
“What’s the matter? Are you finished?”
Perhaps realizing their overwhelming superiority, the frivolous-looking man twisted his eyes into a contorted shape. His eyes seem to glow red, and they are filled with something bizarre.
I tried to escape, but I couldn’t, and my legs began to shake from frustration. My teeth begin to chatter from the suffocation and cold.
I should have run away. I had underestimated them. I’d been too careless. In the blink of an eye, many regrets swirled in my brain. But perhaps it was because I was prepared to die. Like a running lantern, I was reminded of everything that had happened up until now.
A memory of a very busy life that was my previous life, Yulis hellish training that began after I was born and was able to stand on two legs, the hard lordship that I was suddenly put in charge of because of my brothers’ abandonment of the family and the school life where I risked my life to care for Alice, Mist, Claire, and Alfred.
After all the recollections, the shivering stopped, the cold disappeared, and I became as hot as if I were wrapped in a fire. And then, finally, the feelings that seemed to explode out of my body overflowed.
“What the hell? I can’t do it!”
It was so loud that the trees trembled, the leaves scattered, and the birds took flight. The men dropped their swords and held their ears with their hands as the loud voices echoed as if the earth were shaking.
“Why is it so hard for me? What, is it even this hard for the second time in my life? Who the hell are you people? I’ve been through a lot of hardship to get to this day, and it was finally going to work out, but then I got killed by a bunch of people I don’t know, just to keep my mouth shut!”
One after another, the words come out of my mouth on their own.
“Solve the problems that keep piling up day after day, and they keep piling up! I’ve already decided! I’m going to live a slow life for sure!”
Then I flashed my ring and created a stone the size of my fist.
“I’m not going to die in this place! I’m going to live a slow life for sure!”
Then I turned around and threw a stone at the man who had stopped me in my tracks. The stone made a rumbling sound like a fire burning and hit the man in the head. The man who had been hit by the stone fell backwards like a stick.
I immediately rushed to the side of the fallen man and picked up the sword that had fallen out of his hand.
The two of behind me seemed to be taken aback by the suddenness of the incident, but they came to their senses and looked at me with murderous intent in their eyes.
“I want to kill you guys tens of thousands of times more than you want to kill me!”
I ran towards the men in anger. My body was dominated by a scalding heat that made me float, and my brain was dominated by massive amounts of adrenaline. My vision opened up, and I could see the world in front of me clearly, down to the shadows.
The men in front of me raised their swords to meet me, but I felt the air flow against my skin and avoided them before they could follow. The moment I heard their short breaths, I struck the frivolous-looking man in the neck with the side of my sword.
The frivolous man put his hand to his throat and struggled, then fainted and fell silent.
The large man made a high-pitched little bird-like sound that didn’t fit his magnificent physique, and pulled his hips back.
“In the first place, I had no intention of participating in this mock battle! That’s the whole point! It’s not right that Claire likes me in the first place!”
The man’s face paled despite the fact that I was spewing out a complaint that he did not understand at all.
“How inexperienced is she in love? It’s so easy to fall in love with a strong person?”
The large man started to foam, but I didn’t care as I continued to speak.
“Claire is pathologically incapable of love. I’m scared, and I’m in trouble with my family situation!”
The man finally sits up and makes a puddle of his urine on the ground.
“Besides, I only almost won by accident and I’m not stronger than Claire, so I feel very guilty, and Claire herself is a good girl, so I feel even more guilty!”
I shouted for the last time.
“If today’s mock battle won’t go well, what am I supposed to do?”
Of course, the unconscious man didn’t respond to my question, which was filled with anxiety and mixed emotions. However, I felt refreshed from the exhilaration of letting out what I had bottled up inside.
I calm down a bit and look at the men lying on the ground.
What should I do with these guys? Come to think of it, these guys said they were here to assassinate the princess. And if they were from another country, why were they here? Hmm, I don’t know, but it’s okay. I guess it’s a good idea to give them to the guards.
I thought about the identity of the men in black, but for some reason, my brain was spinning slower than usual, so I concluded that I should hand them over to the guards.
Oh no. I said that earlier, with all my anxiety, but honestly, I’m sure they’re doing well with Claire. I guess it’s about time for the ambush squad to attack and end the battle.
With that in mind, I turned around to look at the mountains.
There was a beautiful black-haired girl standing there, looking forlorn.
