Fake Holy Sword Story ～I Was Taken Along When I Sold My Childhood Friend～ - 89
Chapter 89 K-I-L-L H-I-M!
Haaaaaaaaaaa… I’m tired….
「It’s thanks to me. Show me your tears of gratitude.」
As I let out a deep sigh while dejectedly putting my hands on my knees, Magali comes up next to me and blurts out a few words.
I was instantly irritated by her grinning expression and words, but I recovered immediately.
「Yeah, you were useful to me for the first time. Keep doing that kind of thing from now on.」
When I smiled at her and told her that, she completely changed and her smile disappeared… and then she reached her hands to my face.
Ouch, ouch. Don’t pinch my cheek.
Of course, I won’t just let her keep treating me like this, so I pulled her squishy cheeks until she’s on the verge of tears. After satisfied looking at Magali who’s crouching while holding her cheeks, I looked at the place where Rubon crashed.
Okay, now all I have to do is finish him off.
I try to head over to where Rubon is in high spirits that I might be skipping.
『We’ve won, so let’s stop chasing him down!』
…… However, because of the cursed sword, my body suddenly became rigid and I couldn’t move Even the gentle ikemen like me will angry at this.
Because of that naive thinking of yours, I seriously almost died this time, you know!? Just stop screwing around!!
In the first place, there’s no way a fanatic will come back properly. Once you’re in the depths, you can’t crawl up.
That means, if I keep him alive as it is, there is a possibility that I will be targeted forever. There’s no way I can live my whole life in a situation where I don’t know when I’m going to be killed.
It’s best to pluck off the threatening bud.
『I think that’s overkill…』
「Ugh…! I-it hurts…!? How… how can I, who has the power of Angel-sama, be defeated…….!」
Rubon’s voice came through.
When I look at him, he was crawling to get up somehow.
Damn, that guy is still alive.
Still alive even after being knocked down from such a heigh, I’m sure he’s not a human. If he was dead, it would have been easier because I don’t have to put the trouble to finish him off…
『Maybe there was some angel’s power left. Also, Magali used her power for the first time, so she probably couldn’t take all of his power.』
Haa, angel’s power, eh. I don’t have any faith at all, but I’d like to have it if I could.
… Speaking of which, what is Magali’s power?
It looked like Rubon suddenly lost his power……
『Magali… or rather, saint’s power can nullify the opponent’s special power. Fort those who haven’t trained in close combat and rely on their abilities to fight, it’s the worst ability.』
「(… Ain’t I amazing?)」
Magali looks at me again with a smug.
But, there’s no denying it. By all means, I’d love to ask you to do something for me.
Amazing. That’s amazing, so can you try to nullify this cursed sword? I’ll be very happy if this guy lost his will. It will make it easier to get rid of him.
『Stop it! It’s no different than murder, you know!?』
You are not human.
Besides, it’s not like I’m going to get my hands dirty, so… I don’t have to feel guilty about anything, right?
Well…. now is not the time for a carefree talk. I have to deliver the final blow to Rubon who’s trying to stand up while staggering….
The Cursed Sword still seems to be troubled.
Don’t be irresolute! Don’t hesitate to kill him! Don’t worry, my hands won’t get dirty anyway!
「By using Angel-sama’s power, I can expand the faith…. By doing so, I can give Elizabeth a good life…. That’s why… I absolutely… won’t let it end here…!」
…… Was that his purpose?
Cursed Sword-kun! He somehow said something admirable, but don’t mind him! Kill him!
『That’s hard to do!』
Because the Cursed Sword’s wavering thoughts had inclined toward the murder-denying side, my body became rigid again.
Damn! Stop mumbling alone about something unnecessary…!
「That’s enough, damn old man.」
While I was struggling to somehow move my body, it was Elizabeth who went to Rubon’s side. She looked down at him who still unable to stand up, and gave him a pitying look.
「I’m glad you thought for me, but I don’t think that’s a good reason to sacrifice other people.」
「Y-you s-see… I’m fine as long as I can be with you. I’m happy with just you on my side.」
Rubon just looks up at Elizabeth, who looks embarrassed and scratches her cheek.
「So, you don’t have to worry anymore about growing the size or having more believers. Let’s do our best for the sake of those who seek salvation.」
「To you, I might be a puppet for gathering believers. But to me, you are the only father in the world. That’s why… stay with me, dad.」
Elizabeth shows a beautiful smile. It was a beautiful smile that can affect those who see it in some way. I don’t think anything though.
The father sees his daughter who smiles like that. After all, it must be going through him. Rubon is looking at her with a blank look.
「…… Ah, I see. I was wrong, huh…」
And then, Rubon smiles as if he understood everything.
Somehow, a soft and comfortable atmosphere is flowing.
…… Ha? What is this damn stupid development? Are you making fun of me?
『Isn’t that a good story …?』
The Cursed Sword said something that filled with emotion. What the hell is he talking about? That’s not good, though? I was seriously almost killed by Rubon, you know? Do you think he can get away just like that?
I knew from the beginning that he was wrong. So what if you realized it now? Do you have any idea how much it hurts me in the process?
I was attacked by professional assassins and wounded deeply, being chased around by the whole city, and almost crushed by the cheat thing called angel power….
I was forced to risk my life, so it’ll be equal if he gives his life too!
K-i-l-l h-i-m! K-i-l-l h-i-m!
『You are the worst! They are trying to reconcile as a father and daughter!』
None of my business! He’s going to have to pay for it! I can’t agree!
「I’m sorry, Elizabeth. I….」
「It’s okay. Just get up for now. I’ll lend you a shoulder.」
My thought didn’t reach them. Elizabeth and Rubon are now unfolding a touching father-daughter development. Little Elizabeth lends her shoulder to her father and supports his body.
Alright! We can get both of them!
『No, you won’t!』
It was when I and the Cursed Sword were talking about such things.
Suddenly, Rubon pulled Elizabeth, who was supporting him, backward, and knocked her down.
Elizabeth rolls on the ground and shows an angry expression.
Look! He was lying after all! Let’s kill him!
…… I thought so for a moment, but I was immediately stunned when I saw Rubon’s figure.
「What the hell… are… you…」
Elizabeth, who was about to complain, also the same. Her angry expression changed to a stunned expression.
That was because a long spear had been thrust deeply into Rubon’s abdomen.
