I was sold at the lowest price C408: Confrontation
“Amazing! Onii-chan is so strong! I knew my onii-chan is the best…”
Mayu is happy to see the disappearance of the soldier, the object of her fear, as she regains her energy. It would have been easier if the trauma was gone, but it was probably only a temporary feeling.
“All right, Mayu, let’s keep going and take down Demiurgus.”
“That doctor in a white coat that was just here.”
“What……that uncle scares me……I hate……”
“I know, but if we don’t do anything, Mayu won’t be saved. Like I said before, I will definitely protect you.”
It doesn’t matter if I defeat Demiurgus by myself. I have to take Mayu with me, even if it’s a little reckless.
“……Would you be happy if I did my best?”
“Oh, of course it would make me happy.”
“I’m going to go……and see what I can find out. I’ll do my best!”
After having this conversation, I forgot about her appearance and really feel like she is a five year old girl.
I tried to get to Demiurgus, but I was troubled because I couldn’t even remember how I got here. When I thought about it, I realized that this world was made by Mayu’s mind and memory, not reality. There was no map, and the structure was so vague that it seemed impossible that we would arrive at the destination even if we went a random way.
I wondered what to do, but then I had an idea. It might be worth a try.
“Mayu, open the door there and let’s go into the room. Demiurgus is in this room, knows we’re coming in and he’s waiting for us. It’s like jumping into a trap, but we’re going to surprise him by going behind his back.”
This way, I made Mayu aware that Demiurgus is in this room. I tried to make it more realistic by creating an unfavorable setting where he is waiting for us, but…….
The door slowly opens. In the room stood Demiurgus accompanied by his soldiers, with a scowl on his face. I was skeptical, but it seemed to work.
Mayu saw Demiurgus’ face and hid behind me. I stepped forward to protect her from them.
“Demiurgus, Mayu will be free from all suffering today! This is the end for you!”
This is not a declaration for Demiurgus in front of me. It was, in fact, addressed to Mayu to help her visualize her liberation. I came up with the idea from a hint I received from Feri that her perception was important, but I wondered how effective it would be.
I don’t know if these words got through, but Mayu, who is hiding behind me, is reacting by tightening her grip on my body.
“Pain, suffering, fear…….It’s an awesome force! It never ends! It’s unlimited energy! That woman will give me eternal power!”
“Don’t play with people for your own convenience!”
Demiurgus didn’t seem to care about my anger.
“It doesn’t matter. You’re just a nuisance anyway. Disappear.”
At the same time as he said these words, the soldiers around him began to move and slowly approached us.
