The Reincarnated Virtuous Old Man ( Part 2 )
「What’s the other option? 」
「It’s to be reincarnated as a human, it’s not as privileged as being a god but it will be a blessed life among humans. Well with that said, it’s a SSS rank and I recommend that you become a god –」
「Then I choose human 」
「Please reincarnate me as a human 」
「Are you sure? It’s a SSS rank, right? You can be a god you know? 」
「Eeh, I don’t understand the god business. As a human, will my life will be better than my last? 」
「It’s SSS rank, of course! Huh…. You’re really odd. Okay, then you will be reincarnated as a human of SSS rank 」
The angel woman then stamped the paper she was holding in her hand.
「I’ll start the reincarnation process for you, right away 」
「All right, I understand. I should just jump in there right? 」
「Yes, that’ll be the case — 」
「I see. Don’t worry I won’t fuss about it. I have seen a lot of people bothering you and getting into trouble when it came to this part of the journey 」
Without any delay, I made my way over to the big hole.
For a while now I’ve been watching as everyone going into reincarnation get pushed down this hole.
Those who show resistance get a rough handling to make them go through the process.
It is also an immensely taxing job for the angels, from my standpoint, so I should give them a little break and jump down without any hassle.
「You have been a great help, thank you for everything 」
「No, no, drink the holy water first — 」
The angel woman was saying something but I had already braced myself and jumped into the hole without hesitation.
I felt the sensation of falling wrap around my body, soon after I began to lose all my senses.
I have lost my sight and hearing.
The feeling of falling also disappeared and I could not discern where I was or what was happening.
… … … …
I have lost my senses, including that of time, how much time has passed? But little by little, sensations begin to return to my body.
The first sense was of touch.
I felt the warm water that I was soaked in, and then I felt a soft cloth wrap around me.
Then came the sense of smell, there was a soothing, pleasant scent that filled my nostrils.
My ears could finally hear again too.
「Oh oh oh oh! Oh ha, so this is my child! 」
「Well done! Well done! So this is my son! 」
「Darling, you have to give him a name 」
「I have already decided. His name is Alexander!! 」
「Wa, that’s the name of the founder of my family 」
「Mh-hm! It also means he will grow up to be a brave man worthy of that name 」
「Alexander….. Alec…. I have no doubt in my heart that you’ll grow up to live up to your father’s expectations」
Apparently, the voices of the woman and man, I am listening to, are the voices of my new parents.
My father’s voice is full of valour and my mother’s is gentle.
They sound like good parents.
「I must speak to His Majesty the Emperor and ask for his approval for my son to be knighted. My eldest son, who will one day inherit my house, he should at least get a title of knighthood 」
「That’s sounds wonderful, dear 」
「Yes and a wife too!! Wait for it, Alec, your father will find you a wonderful wife! 」
「Dear, are you not skipping a lot of steps, I believe it’d be wise to wait. A fiancée is fine but wouldn’t it be better to let Alec be the one to choose himself a wife? 」
「Well, if he finds someone he can cherish, that is fine. As long as he doesn’t forsake his wife, he can marry both of them. He’s the eldest son of the Carlisle family after all 」
「That much is true 」
「Oh, Alec and his wife’s children – my grandchildren …. I’m sure they will be adorable 」
「You’re doing it again dear, skipping a few steps 」
「Really? That’s right, you’re right, ha ha ha 」
My new parents burst out laughing to each other.
I’m certain they are good parents but I get the feeling that they might not be… normal parents.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, in fact I like it.
It seems I have been reborn into an aristocratic family, my parents have an aristocratic upbringing but they don’t appear conceited, on the contrary, they look very friendly. It may or not be a rare combination, aristocracy and friendliness, in this world.
Realization finally sunk in, that I have been reincarnated into an SSS-rank household.
I have been reborn … Right?
Then why do I have memories of my former life?
My memories, they should have been erased …
I remember now, I forgot to drink the holy water of memory erasure before I jumped into the hole.
I got excited once I found out about the nature of my reincarnation. I had accepted it easily and rushed to get reincarnated, so I forgot to drink it.
So now I am a baby, intact with the memories of my former life.
Is this … … Okay?
My vision had been blurry but it was now it finally cleared.
Before my eyes, there was the face of a man and a woman, my parents, no doubt.
I also see a translucent face – it is the face of the angel woman who was in charge of my reincarnation.
I could see her hovering above me with a troubled face.
I am in trouble, I know it. I’m sorry.
Just erase them already. It’s part of the process to starting a new life.
I have prepared myself for it.
The angel woman with a single sigh and worried face disappeared with a swoosh.
She’s disappeared. Why did she disappear?
I pondered on the question that nobody could answer, and gave up.
「I will subjugate all the barbarians that remain! I will wipe out that land and make it Alec’s first domain! 」
「You’re doing it again dear」
All I can do at this time, is to listen to the voices of my two strange parents.
I don’t understand what is going on, but I have been reincarnated into an SSS-ranked family still retaining my old memories.
