I was sold at the lowest price C407: Recognition
“I’m not a psychiatrist or a specialist, so I can’t do anything with my knowledge so I will start to heal Mayu with my feelings.
“Mayu, does it still hurt?”
Mayu had cried out in pain, but now seemed to have calmed down a bit.
“I’m sorry, Yuta. I’m always bothering you.”
Always? Not much time has passed since we met, so I feel uncomfortable with the phrasing but it didn’t seem like Mayu was joking. For a moment, I wasn’t sure how to respond, so I decided to go along with her.
“I never thought of it as a nuisance. I’m just worried about Mayu.”
When I said this, Mayu’s expression brightened and she hugged me.
“I knew you were on my side, Onii-chan! That’s why I love you!”
She is like a younger sister spoiling her older brother. It was uncomfortable because she was very unlike a sister to look at, but I wanted to let her do what she wanted to do now.
“There she is! This way!”
Oh no, the soldiers have found us. Mayu, who had been smiling earlier, turned pale when she saw the soldiers and remembered the situation she was in.
I immediately wanted to run away again, but thought better of the current situation and decided against it. There is no point in running away here. This is the world in Mayu’s mind and there are no soldiers chasing her in reality. They are probably just an entity created by her memories and trauma.
“Mayu……we will not get anything done if we run away here. Will you trust me and fight with me?”
I know that it takes a lot of courage to fight someone who has instilled fear in you. I thought it more likely that she would refuse this request, but this was the only choice I could think of.
“Fight……those people scare me……I can’t do it.”
“I’m with you now Mayu, you’ll be fine. I’ll definitely protect you.”
Mayu thought for a moment with a serious expression on her face, and then, as if she had made up her mind, she said to me,
“I’m not afraid if you’re with me! I……will try to fight!”
She said that, but her body was trembling slightly. I hugged her tightly to stop the trembling. She closed her eyes and leaned into me, was relieved and stopped shaking.
“You’re not getting away.”
“If the man resists we can kill him.”
“All right, let me do it.”
Three soldiers approached and surrounded me and Mayu to prevent us from escaping.
One of the soldiers shouted and slashed at me. This soldier is not real, it is just a fragment of Mayu’s memory. I knew that, so I had no hesitation. I moved to protect Mayu, turned around, swung my sword horizontally, and slashed down at the soldier.
The soldier who was cut down falls over with a cry. I felt a little uneasy because the sensation was a little realistic, but I was relieved when I saw the fallen soldier disappear.
“You’ve done it!”
“Damn, don’t let your guard down, looks like he can fight.”
Although they were made from Mayu’s memories, they still have a small fry feel to them…….
After sheltering Mayu behind me, I confront the two remaining soldiers. They do not look like strong enemies at all, perhaps because they are not real soldiers. I decided that Mayu was far enough so I stepped toward the two soldiers and swung my sword at them.
With two swings I cut down the two soldiers. One of the soldiers was about to say something, but he disappeared before I could even hear a fragment of it.
