Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 14

Blood 14.


Blood 14 The lie and the truth

「A question here. Why were we able to save you timely?」

Ariel-san gave such a question suddenly.
Come to think of it, why?
I didn't think of it because there was too many things.

『You chased the Elves?』

She was hostile to them somehow after all.

「Boo. Wrong」
『Then, you were watching the details of the war?』

She seemed to be considerably detailed about the Divine Word Religion.

「Boo. That's wrong」
『I'm sorry. I don't know』

I can't think of other reasons.
If it's neither related to the Elves nor watching the war, I can't think of the reason why Ariel-san is in that place.
The self-proclaimed Demon King is just sightseeing by chance is too much whatever the circumstances may be.

「The correct answer is to save you!」

She tells the correct answer while making the sound effect "pan paka pan".
I tilt my head to the side to the content.
To save me?
What for?

『Is it because I'm a reincarnated person?』

I ask while standing ready a little.
Although I don't know why the Elves and the Divine Word Religion are aiming at me, a reincarnated person means that an existence to be aimed.
Then, this person also have some reasons and want to put me nearby, isn't it?
Although it might be better that I'm alive compared with the Elves, if she intends to use me, it becomes impossible to trust her completely.

「Hmm. You could say that, but it's also not that」

The returned answer was an indecisive one.

『What do you mean?』
「Well, because Shiro-chan said to save you, we saved you」
『Eh?』

Eh?
What do you mean?

「Because she's like that, she tends to be misunderstood, but Shiro-chan is a good person anyway. If there's a person who're troubled or a person who's seeking for help, she will help instinctively. She's the type that can't help but to pick up the abandoned kitten. I only helped Shiro-chan in extra, and the one who moved to save you was Shiro-chan」

Eh?

『B-But, she didn't have such a behavior!?』
「Ah. Because Shiro-chan has a difficult personality that wants to act bad. Even if she accumulate good deeds, she will find various reasons and look down on her own actions by herself. In a bad meaning, she's a quibbler. Even though she moved with good intentions free of charge, she placed a compensation to it forcibly saying "In order to acquire this, I'm doing it like this, so it's not a good deed!". And, in that way, she's a tsundere」
『What is...that?』
「In your case, it looks like she was worried about you for quite a long time. She made a nest near that town where you live is to watch over you, isn't it? She probably has seen through that you're a Vampire. Probably, because it will become troublesome when it's found out, I think that she thinks of the worst pattern and make sure that she can go to save you any time」
『No way, but, there's no way...』
「At that time, Shiro-chan was chased by a troublesome pursuer. Actually, it was a dangerous situation to stay in one place. It's impossible to think reasonably to make the nest in such a place that stands out」
『Pursuer? Possibly, is it the time when she disappear and fought, the Divine Word Religion?』
「Yeah. Well, it's unrelated to the Divine Word Religion though. Because it's convenient, it's just that the Divine Word Religion brags it like it's their act」
『Is that so?』
「Yeah. The Divine Word Religion is comparatively good at circulating such false information, you know? After all, the information network is the world's largest. It's a piece of cake for them to circulate such convenient false information. The information at that time became the trigger to the war, isn't it? The Divine Word Religion wanted to start a war with the Goddess Religion, and the information that the Divine Beast that's worshiped by the Goddess Religion was subjugated by someone was too convenient. If they make this as the things that they did, it can be used in the friction with the Goddess Religion」
『They were manipulated successfully by the false information, isn't it?』
「That's right. Well, even if there's no such thing, the Goddess Religion might have been driven to the situation that can't help but to start a war. It's sooner or later. As Shiro-chan says, Shiro-chan was only really used as an excuse, and she has no relation with the Divine Word Religion at all」

No way.
Then, the war itself happened was a mistake?
But, as far as I listen to Ariel-san's story, either way, it will become a war.
Shiraori was only dragged into it.
Huh?
But, wait a minute.

『However, I heard that she appeared in the battlefield after that, and massacred without the distinction between enemies and allies』
「About that. Because I was not in that place, I don't know it in detail, but from what I investigated, it looks like Shiro-chan only attack the Divine Word Religion at first. After that, it becomes indiscriminately though. Well, when thinking about Shiro-chan's personality, didn't she counterattack because she was attacked from the Goddess Religion side? That girl, once she recognizes as the enemy, she won't show mercy」
『Why would the Goddess Religion who's the ally attack the Divine Beast!? Isn't that impossible!』
「It's hard to say. When seeing from us, the Humans are very weak. The body and also the mind. When there's a powerful existence that massacres the enemy mercilessly, and furthermore, it's in the form of being worshiped as the Divine Beast, it's a monster. The conversation can't be done and the actions can't be understood. If such existence exhibits tyranny in front of them, it's possible that they can attack with an impulse. Moreover, Shiro-chan should have the Intimidation skill. It might be a natural flow that the soldiers who were confused by fear run wild」

Then, what?
If that's true, is the situation of the Sariera country now is suffering the consequences of their own actions?
Because they betrayed and attacked the Divine Beast who's the ally.
The army is destroyed partially because of the retribution.
I won't accept such a thing.

「Well, you probably can't agree with it. I can't say anything because this is only my guess. However, I want you to remember this. Although Shiro-chan was in a situation that she can't move for some time, at the moment when she can move, she came running to save you in a hurry. Although she will deny it even if you ask her, it seemed that she was considerably worried about you」

However, but.
I, even if you say such a thing, my feelings can't be switched at once.

「Well, why don't you open your heart gradually when we are traveling together?」

When I was about to nod to Ariel-san's words, I suddenly desist from doing it.
Something had gone out from the white cocoon.
That's the feet.
Long white spider's feet.
That goes out by pushing through the threads of the cocoon.
The one who appeared was Shiraori who has a lower body of the spider.

She comes out of the cocoon and stretches.
The spider's feet stretch.
And, immediately after that, it disappeared into the long robe like being sucked.
What kind of structure is she? Her appearance is a normal human already.

But, that appearance a while ago is a complete monster!
Open my heart to that?
Can I?

    1. But if she said that she'd admit the reason Shiro was attacked and the DWR has an excuse to start a full on war was because of her. Not to mention the reason Shiro wasn't still living near town and thus able to repel their army was because of her.

      If she hadn't attacked Shiro then she probably would have stuck around for at least a few more months and even if the death of that old guy lead to war on it's own she would have been around for it.

  9. Skillfully omitting that shiro's troublesome pursuer was Ariel herself, how sly.

    Well in one sense, even though it was definitely her, it was a different person from the ariel of now. To make a distinction, its great demon king ariel, and maou shoujo ariel after former body-in-charge encroached on her soul to such an extent.

  10. She should just settle down with a male spider somewhere for a little bit

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When spiders consummate, the male is usually got eaten by the female after the deed. With Shiro I can see that she will eat her partner even before doing the deed.

      Delete
    2. Isn't that only certain species of spider?

      Delete
    3. All of spider need a lots of enegy to lay egg.
      But after breeding they hardly to hunt food then they will eat there mate for last meat before rest and waiting fir laying egg time.

      Well some species male will run away after breeding and i that happen female migth die after lay egg or give birth to their baby.

      Delete
    4. There's actually more species of spider where the male eats the female than there is the reverse but generally it's only when the female is smaller than the male. The black widow and the Australian redback spider - although in this case it's more along the lines of the male sacrificing themselves by somersaulting into the fangs of the female - being the ones where the female eats the male. Although it's rare, there is some cases of other species doing the same, but can't be made the standard.

      Delete
    5. Orb weaver males catch prey, then deliver it wrapped as a gift to the females. This is done so the females won't feel the need to eat the male after mating. The one who delivers the best present gets some, and keeps his life for a few more weeks.

  12. staying near to protect = making a big nest to incite attacker so she can eat human exp
    why she overstay while being pursued = because delicious thing
    being attacked by someone who's not divine world religion = she made a blunder because she's an idiot
    saving her in the first place = on a whim
    saving her the second time = possibly on a whim too

    1. Maou shoujo PR her so hard, and Shiro is more like a kuudere than a stundere

    2. Or she may be fooling herself with that as excuses. She is not the most reliable narrator, so it's hard to tell. Remember the chapter where the different personalities where saying the others where idiots.

    3. So you didn't read the part when Ariel said she finds a way to make herself into the bad guy

      Delete
    4. Noooooo...

      Nohero Places... why did you have to say that? I was almost persuaded by Ariel's masterful sales pitch, and now, because of you, I am forced to face reality and admit that Kumoko is not the noble and kind-hearted heroine Ariel tries to sell her for. Sniff.

      Delete
    5. That isn't completely true. In reality while she was somewhat worried about Kuro getting in her way she had other methods to get human experience like bandit hunting. When she realized settling near town wasn't working she could have moved on. She also could easily steal all the sweats she wanted. The fact she chose the method she did and stayed where she was for so long is because a part of her liked helping people even if only a small part.

      Also from the start she really has been worried about vampire girl. She keeps making excuses as to why it bothers her but in the end she can't stop wanting to save her even if it's going out of her way to do so.

      It's true Ariel exaggerated the details and Shiro is far from a saint. But she didn't completely lie either.

  15. you really believe that shiraori such good girl.

    hahaha while this chapter show a good gap moe of her personality i don't believe she's staying near sophia town because of worry though she did interested in her to some extent.
    she did just overstaying because of food. remember that ariel stating her personality as " if it's not regarding my life i'll do what i want wether it's good or bad whatever it takes" means that she's a person who live by mood to the point she tried to quickly slaughter humans and demons after being bribed by food. true her action did inclined towards good but she's not the type that would like to be troubled over troublesome things by will and tend to avoid it if possible.
    remember that she tried to leave the moment she become a goddess readily abandoning their world.

    2. In my Kumoko's defense, what you would if you were on a sinking ship with a one-seat life boat left?
      FYI, you're a single passenger with no family nor close friend aboard the same ship at that time.
      Won't you hop up on the life boat and leave whoever behide?
      This world is a sinking ship with only 3% hp left and recover it take goddam hardship.
      So once she learn she can't escape she decide to save the ship start from her classmate.
      Nothing is wrong with her action so far.
      Even she know the world is ending she still help people and take sweet as payment to lie herself that she's doing it for sweet not from good will.
      What'd you call her if not a good girl?

      Delete
    3. Just because someone's motives aren't altruistic, doesn't mean they aren't a good person. By most standards, you would be a good person if you bother to help people along the way of achieving your own ends.

  18. this is why i like shiraori character. she did everything on a whim to the point it's vague.
    you could take her action as tsundere or a reasonable kuudere (from others pov since she did not exhibit expression nor talking much) or kind of mischievous girl. well done author-san for making the character acceptable to everyone.

  19. @sansern

    uhhh... you got caught up in a gap moe. like i said she's inclined towards good but not such good person. why she save her because she's not the kind who leaves things halfway wether it's the life she has saved or food. and you just admit that she just have no choices over the matter of staying to safe the world. she'd saved sophia and ronant but why she readily kill the hero ?

    un. also remember that her deal with D is to accompany ariel towards the end. wether the world saved or not her deal with D still stands (if D did fulfill it) and she can leave that world.

  21. i like shiraori and her antics together with maou shoujo ariel. i just want to let you know that she has unique vague character and not the goodie two shoes you wanted her to be.

    it's like rejecting her more than 200 chapters monologue you know.

  22. Pls Don't forget that ariel have kumoko memory. So I think she knews exactly what is going on with shiraori at that time.

    2. Because Ariel come from Body-in-charge. That Body-in-Charge, you know~ That infamous airheaded personality that we know and love from the start.

      In contrast, the current Shiraori come from multiple personalities who absorbed all Queens. So there's considerably deviation. And without absorbing Body-in-Charge, the airheaded portion seems to be lost~

  24. I wonder if she will realize that she is doing exactly what others did to her in her past life when she says "But, that appearance a while ago is a complete monster!

  25. Seems like everyone here got caught in that vicious gap moe trap...

    Well rejoice who see her in a different light since her monologue would get lesser from now on. It's just completely shocked me how people could possibly forget about how her mind works after 200+ monologue chapters.

    It's gonna get more awesome later and amusing too.
    Not a spoiler but later on Karen called her Master.
    And this one is possibly spoiler
