Chapter 95
“That’s all for today’s class . ” (Diego)
Eleonor didn’t appear all day . I’m sure something’s wrong .
When Eleonor was in the temple she said she couldn’t move by her own will . If she’s in the same condition as that time then she might not be able to come meet me .
Should I go meet her?
“Um, Arnos-sama . Did anyone talk to you about going to the festival?” (Misa)
“Fumu . I’ve got a bit of business to take care of but you should go and enjoy it . ” (Arnos)
“I see . ” (Misa)
“I’ve going to give it a miss today as well . I’m pretty tired . ” (Ray)
“Were you up late?” (Misa)
“I not sleeping well due to the pillow being different . ” (Ray)
“I see…… . ” (Misa)
Misa looks a bit disappointed so Ray goes over to her and whispers
“Do you want to join me taking a nap?” (Ray)
“… . . Eh, errm… . . ” (Misa)
I see . You want to be alone with Misa .
“Don’t want to?” (Ray)
“N . . no . I mean yes I’ll… . come with you . ” (Misa)
The girls in the fan union started whispering about them .
“……Ray-kun is sleepy…… . ”
“Yeah . Don’t Ray-kun and Arnos-sama share the same room……?”
“Waiit, waiiit! What are you thinking about!?”
“Nothing . I’m not thinking about any special contact or anything… . ”
“Don’t say special contact!”
“… . . Then, theeeen, in other words… . . now… . . Misa is… . ”
“Going to indirectly share a bed!?!?”
Leaving them to their talk I leave the auditorium .
Using my demon eyes I try to locate Eleonors magic power but I can’t find it anywhere .
Are you erasing your magic power? Misha couldn’t find Eleonor either when she was looking .
What I can find and follow though is Diegos magic power .
If the hero academy has done something to her then there’s no way the head of the school doesn’t know about it .
I make myself invisible with , hide my magic power with and follow Diego .
He leaves at a quick pace and heads to lake Seimei .
Using Diego quickly moves through the empty lake and heads to a formerly underwater cave . I thought he would have headed to the temple .
We proceed through the dim cave and as we approach the back a small spring gushing out holy water appears .
Using Diego jumps into the spring .
Following closely behind I find its both deep and very large . Its outside state is different from the inside .
Using again Diego swims like a fish through the water and dives towards the bottom .
Just as I was wondering how deep it was the bottom finally shows up and I see a huge door locked with .
Diego opens the door and heads inside but I wait .
Even with my magic and figure hidden he’ll notice someone opening the door so I wait for him to leave .
“Open . ” (Arnos)
After waiting a few minutes I open the door to find a stone building inside .
This side of the door is dry due to magic holding the water back behind the door .
What on earth is he doing here?
As I walk down the passage I find a collapsed wall and its new . Within a few days I’d say .
The further in the building I go the more internal destruction I find . Floors, ceilings and walls are crushed, cut or just fallen into holes .
Fumu . It’s like there was a battle here recently .
“Aren’t there any clues yet!”
An angry voice calls out and its Diego .
It’s coming from behind a nearby door .
I stand behind it and listen carefully .
“…… . I know he’s a masked man… . ”
“I received that report this morning! I’m telling you to give me something new!” (Diego)
“I’m very sorry . ”
“Is this not the work of the demon king academy?” (Diego)
“… . . I couldn’t detect the thief’s magic power . I can’t even tell if it was a mazoku…”
A masked man whose magic power you cant sense huh?
That’s a familiar story .
“Besides, our plan isn’t known to the demon king academy so it’s unlikely they attacked this facility . It’s probably the work of the Virhia Empire to the west . ”
“There’s no reason for those guys to do this! We’ve been building up friendly relations with them for more than a 1000 years!” (Diego)
“… . As may be but it would be foolish to completely trust all of Azeshion . Is there a spy in the academy? They might have heard the rumours of the holy mother . ”
The room falls silent . Is Diego keeping quiet?
“Could they have an inkling of the holy mother’s location?” (Diego)
“It seems so . The masked man was rampaging but wasn’t able to find it . ”
Everything went silent again .
Eventually, Diego seems to come up with an idea .
“Okay then . This is what we’ll do . Well, make this attack look like the mazoku did it . ” (Diego)
“… . One of the demon king academy students? Shall I capture one?”
“Yeah and the method doesnt matter . People believe we are justice anyway so it’s fine . It’ll make a good cause to invade Deiruheido with . ” (Diego)
“Then, finally?”
“Yes . The time has come to fulfil our long-cherished wish . ” (Diego)
“Yes! Understood!”
“I’ll leave the spy to you . Find them and make them spit out everything they know . Use whatever means necessary . ” (Diego)
What a stupid thing .
Creating a fake fire to make a justification for war .
Why are you so dissatisfied with peace?
I could kill him right here but I destroyed his origin yesterday and here he stands .
It would probably be quicker to stop their plans .
I don’t know who this holy mother is but she’s important to the hero academy .
Going on what I know so far its probably Eleonor .
If the masked man couldn’t find it then there’s a hidden room around here somewhere .
I look around with my demon eyes but there’s nothing that could be a hidden magic device which makes sense since it’s the first thing that would be noticed . That means it’s like my dungeon back at the demon kings castle and it’s hidden via normal means and not magic .
I retraced my steps and came to the passage with the destroyed wall .
I raise my foot slightly and tap the floor .
Immediately afterwards the building shakes greatly with the vibration from my tap .
“Enemy attack! Deploy the entire squad!!”
Soldiers come surging out but when they realise no one is there they stop and look around suspiciously .
“……Was it an earthquake… . ?”
“… . . It’s incredibly rare around lake Seimei . Is it because the waters gone… . ?”
While the soldiers are talking I search for their magic using my demon eyes and grasp all their locations .
Fumu . There?
I walk down the passage to my targeted place .
After all the soldiers have gone I face a very ordinary-looking wall, place my fingertip on it and pushed .
A normal non-magic hidden door swings slowly open .
In an emergency its human nature to protect what you are supposed to protect and in doing so create an information leak .
The answer became known when I compared the placement of the soldiers before and after the vibrations I caused .
I walk down the straight and dimly lit passage easily avoiding an assortment of non-magic traps .
Eventually, a faint blue light appears in front of me and I enter into a vast space .
Several thousand floating, no, there’s more than that . Over 10,000 floating holy water balls and all of them have a naked girl floating in them .
Zeshia Kanon Ijeishka .
It’s her without a doubt . The school’s number 1 .
Every single one of them . All of the over 10,000 girls have the exact same origin .
And there in the centre of the vast room in the largest holy water ball was Eleonor .
Her entire body is glowing with magic power and like yesterday it’s causing her outline to become blurry .
A number of magic characters emerged from her body and floated around it while her magic power was spread amongst the other holy water balls .
“Eleonor . ” (Arnos)
I cancelled and called her name .
“……Arnos-kun… . . ” (Eleonor)
She looks at me joyfully but also surprised .
“Sorry I couldn’t come . This was a bit unexpected for me . ” (Eleonor)
“According to our schedule, we were to meet after school and it’s now after school so no problem . ” (Arnos)
Eleonor smiles .
“I knew for sure you’d come . ” (Eleonor)
She raises her finger and stares at me with a gentle expression .
“Even though it’s in a place like this will you hear my wish?” (Eleonor)
“Gladly . ” (Arnos)
“I want Arnos-kun to destroy an origin . ” (Eleonor)
“Fumu . Whose?” (Arnos)
Eleonor responds in an eager tone of voice
“Mine . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor smiles a genuine smile with no hint of a lie . It was a heartfelt wish .
“I’ve been waiting a long time for the person who’ll set me and Zeshia free from this endless hell . Arnos-kun end me . ” (Eleonor)
In this way she confesses .
“I’m a taboo magic that should never have been created by humans . ” (Eleonor)
