Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? The Royal Capital Battle 2

The royal capital battle 2.


The royal capital battle ②

Author note: Shun's point of view.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

「Sensei. I will still go and save Nii-sama」

Sensei bites her lips to my determined voice.
Surely, Sensei understands that I won't draw back.

「Will you go, no matter what?」
「Yes」
「I see. I will also follow」
「Sensei, this is my problem. There's no need for Sensei to follow me forcibly」
「I can't let Shun-kun go there alone」
「It's not alone. Of course I will also go」
「Katia, but」
「Please let me go. Even though I was manipulated, I must at least settle the things that I have caused」

The same color of determination as me can be seen in Katia's eyes.
In other words, she don't intend to draw back.

「I understand. But, don't force yourself, okay?」
「Yes」

She agrees obediently.
But, the words can't be trusted in any way.
The Katia now has the atmosphere that seems to be do reckless things calmly.

「If Shun-kun is going, of course I will also go」
「Hyrinth-san」
[Don't worry, I will protect Jou-chan]

Hyrinth-san who talks to me with Telepathy.
If that's the case, I'm relieved.

「Well then, what to do about the strategy?」
「Defeat Yuugo. That's the only one」
「That's impossible」

Sensei's words.

「Yuugo-kun, no, Yuugo have already transferred to Rengzant Empire. Together with Sue-chan」
「What!?」
「Shun, you did acquire the Space Magic, right? What's the level?」
「It's useless. The level rise of Space Magic is slow, so it's only 3. I can't learn Transfer just by training it from now」

In the royal castle of Anareich Kingdom, there's a thing called transfer circle that goes directly to the Kasanagara continent, but even if it's used, there's still a distance to the Rengzant Empire.
No matter how we struggle, it's impossible to reach the Rengzant Empire before Nii-sama's execution.

「So, they escaped, huh?」
「Yes. That's why, it's impossible to kill Yuugo」
「Kill?」

I feel shaken to Sensei's words.

「Shun-kun, don't tell me you intend to let Yuugo who caused this situation to live?」
「No, but」
「Shun-kun. I regret that I only deprive his skill and status at that time. If only I care for him after that, it might not become like this. However, if I kill him at that time, this kind of thing will never happen」

I shivered to the glitter of Sensei's gloomy eyes.
Sensei is serious.
She seriously thinks of killing Yuugo.

Even I can't forgive Yuugo.
Father was killed, Sue and many people are manipulated.
There's no way that I can forgive him.
But, I never thought of killing him.
I can't think of it.
Even if it becomes like this, I'm still hesitating to kill a person.

「Anyway, killing Yuugo comes after we saved Leston-kun. Let's think of other plans」

Everyone except me accept the dangerous word "kill" obediently.
Is this because I'm strange?
I might be strange.
Even if I see objectively, what Yuugo has done so far, deserves a certain death.
And yet, it might be strange that the me who's the victim don't hold any killing intent.

But, after all, it's the figure of the great Hero that comes to my mind.
Julius-niisama.
That person too, it doesn't mean that he can't kill people.
I'm sure that he has killed a lot of Demons with his hands.
But still, in his mind, was there an evasive feeling to killing similar to me?

I shake my head.
Now I should think about rescuing Leston-niisama who's my another older brother.

「On the night before Nii-sama's execution, we infiltrate into the place where Nii-sama is caught and escape. I think this is the only one to avoid useless combat」

Everyone thinks to my proposal.

「It's full of problems」

Hyrinth-san mutters.

「In what way?」
「First of all, we don't know where Leston is caught. If we don't know where it is, it's useless to infiltrate」
「If that's the case, my skill is useful」

Sensei raises her hand to Hyrinth-san's words.

「I have a special skill for the Ruler. It has the ability to search a specific skill that a living thing has. Because I know Leston-kun's skill composition, I'm sure that the place can be known if I use this skill」

I nod "I see".
I understand the reason why Sensei can gather us former students in a short time.
She use the skill and search for the garbled text skill that only we have.

「Then, about the second problem, soldiers will surely be stationed around Leston. What do you plan to do with that?」
「We are strong enough to not lose to normal soldiers. Because there's a limit to stealth, we will just have to force our way through when we are found」

I answer this time.
The members here are all powerful people among the Humans.
There's no way that we will lose to a normal soldier.

「There's surely a trap. What to do with it?」
「Crush all of it」

I declare it.
We have the power to that extent.
I believe so.

「Then, I will say the greatest concern. What will you do if Leston has been brainwashed?」

I can't answer Hyrinth-san's words immediately.
That's also something I thought before.
Judging from Yuugo's character, he will do the things that I hate the most.
And, that is to brainwash Leston-niisama, and when we came to save Leston-niisama, we will be attacked by him.
The more worst one is to force Leston-niisama to suicide in front of us.
If it's only being attack, it's settled if we can hold him down.
But, it's difficult to stop the suicide.
Either way, in the case where Nii-sama has been brainwashed, the situation becomes severe.

「I have a plan」

But, I have a secret plan.
If possible, I don't want to use it, but when the situation is bad, it's not the time to keep it.

「If Nii-sama has been brainwashed, could you leave it to me?」
「And, can you do something?」
「Yes」

I declare.
I won't let Yuugo make anyone do as he please anymore.

「What's left is the rescue of the people other than Nii-sama」

Everyone frown to my words.

「Shun, that's impossible」
「Why is it?」
「Although I don't know how many people have been caught in this matter, I'm sure that it's a large number of people. We don't have the composure to escape while guarding them」
「But」
「Shun, I agree with Hyrinth-san」
「Katia」
「Shun, we are not gods. There are things that are possible and impossible. Even if you save everything, the damage will only enlarge」

When I try to object Katia's words, I notice that her hands are grasped tightly.
That's right.
Katia didn't talk about how are her parents and the people of the Duke house at all.
From Katia's appearance, I can somehow guess it.
But, she never say to save them.

Katia has gave up to save her parents.
I'm sure that she wants to save them.

「I understand. The one we will be rescuing this time is only Leston-niisama」

I said it with heartbroken thoughts.
Even I'm worried about what happened to Clevea after that.
I want to save Sue and the other brainwashed people.
But, that can't be done.
I don't have the power to do it.

「It's favorable that Yuugo is not there. But, Shun. Use "Appraisal" frequently just in case. He returned with Transfer, so that means that he might return with Transfer. It might become a situation where someone of us has been brainwashed before we know」
「Ah. That's right」
「Sensei. Because it's like that, please accept Shun's appraisal」

Katia's sharp words.
I see, so Katia's aim is this.

Sensei's expression changes.

「What's wrong? If you never did anything guilty, it should be fine to accept the appraisal. Or, is there something that must not be seen?」
「That's...」
「Sensei. If you don't accept Shun's appraisal here, I can't take actions with you」

After Sensei kept silent for a while to Katia's words, she nodded without power.

「Go ahead」

I activate "Appraisal" to Sensei's words.
High status.
High level skills.
Because I have expected it, I don't feel surprised.
And, the thing that Sensei wanted to conceal.

「Don't worry. There's no suspicious point in Sensei's status」
「Is that so. If Shun says so, I will believe. Sensei, I'm sorry for doubting you」
「N-No. It's all right」

Sensei flustered to the bowing Katia.

[Why?]
[What do you mean?]

I play dumb to Sensei's question in Telepathy.

[You should understand what I mean]
[I have expected it]

That's right.
I have expected it.
In Sensei's skill, there's "Taboo".

[Shun-kun, don't tell me, you...]

I ignore Sensei's Telepathy on purpose.
What I have to think now is how to infiltrate into the place where Nii-sama is caught.

    2. That's info the eves told her. I think she wouldn't side with the else if she knew the real true

    3. I think it is level 10, and she didn't tell the entire truth to the students.

      Ever since Kumoko hit level 10 Taboo, I assumed Sensei had it too. It only makes sense, since this is at least 10 years in the future from Kumoko's timeline. It'd be easy to hit level 10 Taboo by then.

    4. yep.. easy.. so easy that shun that have easy way to raise it didn't max it yet.

      kumoko max it fast because her evolution tree gave her a level per evolution and her lot of ruler skill

    1. I'm actually thinking this is not just idealism. He may be another chosen, artificially made to be the opposite of Kumoko, while she only knows killing, he doesn't kill.

    2. I KNOW! FK i hate him the 2nd after Yuugo!

      1) The assh0le tried to kill him but he didn't do anything and lets him go.

      2) Again the assh0le comes back kills him Dad brainwashes & charms his dear sister and katia.
      3) Makes his beloved little sister kill their father and then tries to kill him.
      4) Tries to kill him for the 2nd time along with his older 3rd brother while teaming up with his Eldest brother.
      5) Then steals his Title as a Hero(not literally) just in 'name' sense meaning others will think Yuugo is the hero and when Shun tries to claim he's THE Hero they will report him or hate him for trying to trick the people.
      6) Also the guy is going to marry his sister who has been brainwashed and charmed so that she is in love with Yuugo. He should know what is NTR since he;s from japan lol and its happening to him ForFcksSake..
      7) FFS He’s gonna rape(brainwashed+charmed so yeah rape) his little sister after their Forced Marriage!

      Yet he’s still hesitating to kill the PSYCHO THIEF!
      Try to kill him twice. Shun: Its cool man~
      Killed his dad. Shun: No problem dude~
      Brainwashes his sister and forces her to marry him. Shun: Remember to send me a wedding invitation~ & Can i be your best man?
      Steals his title as a Hero in name only. Shun: What’s mine is yours~

      Verdict: World’s Biggest P*SSY!

    3. At times like these.. i wish Kumo chan had the power of Rou and then she'll take over the story line of Shun after eating him..

      Delete
    4. Sensei can killing people for him so he no need to kill human.

      Delete
    5. Who says she hasn't been raped yet could have been done already this is why I hate mind control

      Delete
    6. Umm, actually it's not his fault. It's because his
      [SPOILERS AHEAD] skills are distorting his soul. He has the kindness skill which is really messing his shit up[Spoiler END]

      Delete
    7. I think you'd both be great underlings for Yuugo with such a sour personality. You'd probably even end up like him if you got into the same situation I bet. Silly Hypocrites.

      Delete
  4. Damn, another idealistic moron is the hero. Why do idiots always become heroes

    2. Hero shun, please learn from Kumo chan. She will teach you well but remember to bring much offerings and maybe even a bag chips with you

      Delete
  5. Since she has a "Ruler" type skill, of course she has Taboo, since we've already seen that everytime Kumoko gains a Ruler skill her Taboo goes up.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Just a though, but maybe "evasive feeling to killing" should be "aversion to killing". This makes much more sense in my opinion every time I read that bizarre line of dialogue.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Since he expected taboo did he buy a ruler skill?

    ReplyDelete
  8. i hope he dies
    that fucking fool
    everything that prinny Dood wrote is the simple truth
    even if yuugo rapes his sister in front of him he will probably cheer him on

    ReplyDelete
  9. Bah save 1 person because his my family but everyone else can go fk themselves.

    Nicely done damn hypocrite of a hero.

    oh well that brother might be a good piece in the future.

    1. it seems like you didn't read properly
      he says he wants to save everyone
      which makes him ...*drummroll*... an idiot!

  10. Shun pisses me off with how naive he is

    ReplyDelete
  11. Shun is great. He is self aware enough to understand the rational need to take a life,yet unwilling to do it on a whim because his morals are strong.

    Considering the amount of protagonists, who delve deep into their vices and show off how pathetic their petty self-serving wishes really are... It's pleasurable to read about him.

    Can't wait for the further development of his character. Will he succumb to denial of reality like a typical shounen protagonist? Will he accept the Maou's desire to destroy everything? Will he, like a true Hero, find a way to bring happiness to whatever will be left of humanity (and... demonity?) by the end of story?

    His adventure has barely bugun!
