00-01 Compensation for the mistake
This is the first time I am doing serialized story.
I do not know how far I can go, but I’d appreciate if you follow me.
※The beginning after the end of the tragedy
– – – – That day, I made an irreparable mistake.
Flames are burning with a tremendous sound.
Did that burn until it collapsed?
Did it stop burning because it collapsed?
Many of the houses made from wood are partially burning.
There are no movement and no voices.
Only the sound of flames burning the lives of people remains,
mixed with the sound occasionally produced when a building collapses.
From the small village, only ruins remain.
Therefore, even if someone survived, the only thing remaining from his usual life would be a big black mess.
Or there are only cruelly torn up body parts scattered about.
Can’t even figure out where the source of flesh and blood is as they are scattered around everywhere.
Signs of destruction and slaughter are carved into the ground.
No one will know.
About this little village which was calm just one hour ago.
No one will know.
That the trivial choice of a boy would change this scene into hell
No one will know.
The only survivor is the boy who caused all of this.
” Uuu, uaaa, uu……I’m sorry, so sorry.”
The boy with black hair while shedding tears is holding a body of a woman who is missing a left arm.
The black clothes the blonde beauty is wearing are torn and covered with blood.
Her eyes were still showing sign of life, but the blood she needed to live have run out for the most part.
Her body is showing serious injury and in addition to the left arm she had lost, her body is suffering from deep lacerations.
It is really strange that she remained alive in this condition.
” ……Boys should not cry……”
“Isis, you are conscious!?”
Although being in such a state, she smiles at me.
She uses her right hand to try and poke my forehead, but she didn’t have enough strength remaining while the boy’s tears are not stopping.
Well, no matter what is done right now, the woman can’t be saved.
Because he is the cause, he understands it fairly well.
“Baka……why! Why did you try to help me?
It’s my fault! I killed everyone!”
“Shin, what are you saying?”
“Jake, Lily, Rho, Serene, and everyone, it was me!
Also Isis, you too … … …. I killed you”
There is still a short breath, but there is no help.
Her life is fading away without even a minute left.
It’s certain that I did it myself.
“Aaah… …for me to have made a blunder like this?”
Even if she has no power left, she shows an easygoing face and laughs.
The boy cannot understand that attitude.
She should blame him; she should be angry; she should hate.
But before that, she should have killed me
“Stop ***ing kidding me, what’s the meaning of letting only me live?
Do you wish me to remain guilty for everyone?
I only wanted to help Isis …!”
The result cannot be changed, but she was still safe.
Therefore she chose to save the boy.
“It’s because I was worried about the crybaby boy… No wonder I’m in this state”.
When asked why, she didn’t answer with the same voice as usual.
I got caught with the reality and it quietly ended.
“Isis? Hey? Hey? He–ey? Isis’ corpse!?”
I can’t stop yelling at the scene in front of me
Her body is wrapped up in light and the light gradually scattered.
“…Even so, it’s like I was never holding her.”
“I can’t believe it is your soul fading? Why? I can’t understand!!!
What does that mean to be rescued if I’m separated from you!?”
The compensation for the miracle to rescue the boy was literally the woman.
Not to mention life, it even consumed the body
Silently he is looking up at her while wanting to ask questions of her countless times.
Tears show in his eyes and his face is completely worn out. He does not know which way the dead body is.
He was ready to collapse from the weight of guilt at any moment.
“Why was someone like me saved?”
Finally… To be able to have a decent conversation, servile little boy.”
“Shut up !
This is as expected of a thoughtlessly violent sister isn’t it? “
While he is shouting with a tearful voice, she smiles happily.
She is really happy about the way he called her.
” Fufuffu ~ for the friends that would say that, my principle is that I will not forsake them.”
“From … now, I want to protect … will not let anyone have …”
In order to interrupt his sentence, with her last power, she pulls the necklace from her chest.
The silver Crescent Moon which shines covered in blood is passed to the boy.
“It’s not a memento… it’s a really important thing… please… protect.”
“A-aahh, wait! Isis, wait!
No, wait, I still have more to say, a lot more.”
While holding her tightly, the sign of her shaking means that time to have to let her go is drawing closer.
That’s because the right hand I should have been holding is missing.
Almost all the parts of her body that should have remained becomes light and disappear.
As the weight in my arms is less than half, I understand how much has disappeared.
“I understand … it’s good.”
“What is good? Ah, oh stop! Don’t disappear!”
From her body, only the top part of her chest remains.
There is no more weight in one of his hands.
“Fufufu ~ it’s funny right……”
“Not a chance, ehh, wait… wait for it!”
Even so, she disappears immediately and there is no more weight applied on his arm.
Only the smile is left which is really contrasting with the surroundings.
“…Ah … … a boy but inside is like a man.
Fairly decent, quiet, romantic ———–”
He tried to grab the light with his hand even though he knew this was meaningless.
He grabs the air over and over with his hands, but nothing remains.
The only thing remaining is a big sense of loss that hit his body.
He couldn’t hold the pain and wails through the heaven.
