WSU VOLUME 2 CHAPTER 25: THE HERO AND THE DEVIL
Translated and edited by lovelyxday
The Hero and the Devil
The Demon Beast Record states: “Devils are extraordinary existences in this world . They live in their own domain which takes the shape of a fortress . They call themselves the race that betrayed the gods . They despise deities, start wars, and commit the gravest of sins . The Middle Earth alliance rose up to punish them, but it was not easy to achieve victory . ”
The Different World Journal states: “In Duopunuowa they are citizens of the night that call people who lose their way . Once, a melodious voice drew in a traveller . He saw a maiden bathing in a spring the color of blood . The next day, when he returned to the city, it was in ruins . Then he realized the maiden he saw was a devil . ”
At this moment, a giant fortress was suspended in the sky .
The tint of my vision turned extremely strange .
The colors seemed to be inverted, but at the same time like different shades of paints mixed together .
The sky filled with a indispensable red fog, and the blood moon hung in the air .
It was constructed like a church, but the scale was closer to that of a palace .
Silently hovering in the air, it leaked an absolute pressure .
It was about a hundred meters high, liable to fall down at any moment .
If it came down, the entire city would be destroyed in an instant .
Whether it be the buildings or the city walls or the people gathered here, nothing would be left .
Thus, just the mere presence of the fortress gave everyone a boundless pressure .
A fear from the unknown .
But for me, the one worthy of fear was not that floating fortress . It was the person who lived there .
Even that high in the air, she could accurately kill a dragon . One of the five territory generals of the demon race, the main character of the Disaster of the Three Hundred .
By using magic to strength the eyes, I can drastically zoom in with my sight .
A lofty, grandiose fortress . The main building was a dome, constructed by four corners blending together smoothly .
The building was connected to a giant, grassy plain . As if there was an invisible hand pulling the castle from the ground, dirt continued to fall from the bottom .
Then, standing at the very tip of the tower, the devil .
A pair of black ram horns sprouted from a head of short, light pink hair . A chokingly beautiful face .
Long black eyelashes, rosy cheeks, bright red lips .
A black, cropped jacket showed off every curve in her body . Her ample bosom was half bared to the outside, and exposed parts of her waist showed alluring white skin .
A leather mini skirt revealed slender, white legs crossed together, and her pointy high heels pressed against the fortress .
A long, slender tail curled out behind her, the tip ending in the shape of a heart .
On top of that, she was gripping a black scythe in her hands .
For any man it was a body full of allure, but for me it lacked all attraction .
At that moment, I was shrouded in despair .
This was true despair, as if faced with hell .
Just by looking at her, my past nightmares resurfaced in my mind .
The desperate battle, brave sacrifices, remorse and self-blame, life and death .
All of it began with Scameplier, and all of it ended with her .
But I still generated a black sword in my hands .
So-called miracles are finite . No matter how one person tries, no matter how good his luck is, he can’t bare handedly fight an avalanche or a tsunami .
Before some types of strength, miracles will not occur .
Scameplier was at the peak of strength, and I, unarmed and defenseless, was facing this natural disaster .
Besides defeat, I had no other options .
Even so, I still chose to fight .
There wasn’t any other reason .
It was just because I was a hero, and I wanted to protect some things .
It was just because Ailee was behind me .
I focused on Scampelier, then saw her leave the fortress with my own eyes .
The silent city was still floating in the air .
Only she had disappeared .
In the next moment, I would be killed .
I couldn’t see what direction she went, so I had no way of dodging, no way defending .
Just at this moment, the thought “I’m done for!” appeared in my mind .
I closed my eyes .
Then I felt a warmth on my chest .
I was being hugged .
Over a hundred meters of distance was closed in just tenths of a second .
“At long last, I meet you, Hero Leon . ”
My brain could not respond . My right arm gripping the sword was stiff and unmoving .
I lowered my head to see the grinning Scampelier .
Black eyes like stars met mine, an elegant but strange fragrance .
Right at this moment, memories skipped through my mind .
The scene of three hundred deaths stood out vividly .
Anger encompassed my brain .
I wasn’t done speaking when something soft touched my lips .
The words I couldn’t say were stuck in my mouth .
The girl before me wrapped her arms around my neck, and her moist tongue slid into my mouth, gently licking the roof of my mouth .
In just a moment, she pulled away, a strand of saliva forming a glistening line between our mouths .
“I always wanted to see you, Leon . Come with me . ”
What is this……
My head was in shambles .
What was happening .
My sword clattered to the ground, exploding into vapor .
What should I do now? Kill her here?
That, if I was going to do it I should have done it on the Day of the Three Hundred .
Now what could I do .
Hazy voices echoed in my mind .
—I am Leon, the hero, Leon .
—No, that’s not it . I am humanity’s traitor, enemy of the world .
—I should accept these sins, and disappear from here .
—But, I want to live… I want to live .
—Leave, leave for there .
“I am the person standing by your side, Leon . ”
A familiar, amiable feeling filled a cavity in my mind .
It was like lying down next to your friend on the grass on a spring day, reclining next to the roaring fire with your lover in the winter .
My awareness was growing fuzzy .
Even if I save someone, they won’t appreciate me .
I was no longer needed by this world .
Then I should leave .
Leaving together with Scampelier was not necessarily anything bad .
Letting me start anew .
Go, go .
I reached out both of arms to hug Scampelier back .
“Yes, this is good . You are mine, Leon . ”
A hot breath tickled my ear .
A voice that could absorb people’s hearts and souls could not be fought against .
I squeezed the busty maiden in my embrace and without hesitation kissed her .
Tongues entwined .
Scameplier’s exquisite skin rubbed against me body . Her chest induced soft pressure .
Selling my soul to a devil .
The person in my arms was something of mine . The only thing that could be mine .
My hands caressed Scameplier’s exquisite back lines .
I kissed Scameplier until I could hear her faint breathing grow ragged .
Like pledging my sovereignty .
This was all right, this was—
Someone’s hysterical wail—
I pushed away Scameplier .
Not right, not right .
How could this be alright .
I looked at Ailee sobbing behind me .
