FFF-Class Trashero - Chapter 114
Chapter 114 – You Are Dead Already
Was it during the 6th playthrough? I remember hearing this from the priestess in the cave. After defeating the Demon Lord Pedonar, the First Hero escaped with his harem, making a new life for himself. In other words, Elder 1 graduated not because he took down the Demon Lord but because he found a way to escape from this Fantasy dimension.
How? Thief E just mentioned this. One could move through dimensions with the help or permission of the God of the fantasy world.
Confusion: Is this possible?
Miss Trainee, don’t you know anything about this? If you’re hiding something, your secret friend will be extremely upset.
Answer: There are generation gaps among the teaching staff. For example, the director and headteacher who raised the First Hero are 1st generations. My older colleagues were with the First Hero at the same time, 2nd generation. And finally, very young interns, like me, are part of the 3rd generation! Therefore, I know very little.
Anticipation: Ask her quickly. I’m interested too!
Miss Trainee. Don’t rush me.
“Don’t rush me, Savage Hero. I don’t know the details either. Mom said that if you collect three Chaos Artifacts for each of the three attributes, which in total equals nine items, you can move between dimensions. Two Artifacts were passed down from generation to generation, and my father found one. I found one. In total, our family collected four Artifacts.”
And if you steal another one at the auction, she’d have five.
Was the ability to move through dimensions hidden there?
A: Confuse the target.
B: Destroy the target.
C: Consign the target to oblivion.
D: Immunity to Chaos.
E: Immunity to destruction.
F: Immunity to oblivion.
I don’t have enough data to be sure of that. Or is this power not part of the Black Box at all? The three attributes that Thief E mentioned are chaos, destruction, and oblivion. The characteristics of the “Chaos” race were easy to calculate. It’s worth researching.
At this time, the Spirits of the Wind began to whisper in my ear with such force that my eardrums almost burst.
”…Is that so?”
As expected, Prince Nasus was making good progress. There was no doubt that all the people from the auction would fall to his power. But everything went too slowly. With the level and skills of Prince Nasus, he alone would have to finish them off. But the black market mercenaries were still fighting.
It’s clear what they’re up to.
”Give up! Otherwise, we will kill these elves!”
Exactly this situation. Realizing that they were weaker, the mercenaries began to threaten the invaders by taking the low-level elves they had recently acquired hostage.
”Drop your weapon and surrender— Kahak?!”
”Don’t you want to save your— Akk?!”
The invaders warned threatened by Prince Nasus didn’t stop their attack, though they did slow. They were so slow that the question crept in whether they thought to save at least one of the captive elves. Thanks to this, the mercenaries were able to proceed with the following actions.
“Don’t think it’s just a threat! Kill five in the front.”
”I don’t want to— Kak?!”
The elves, from whom I took experience points and dropped their level to 1, couldn’t resist, so they quickly died. And not only because of the mercenaries.
Puk! Puk! Puk!
The invaders’ arrows hit the bodies of the fragile elves, whom the mercenaries used as shields. There was no remorse or sadness on the faces of the elven archers. Although they were tribesmen, they were still from different factions. They didn’t care if all the hostages from the circle of the opposition’s leader, Princess Sylvia, died.
No, they deliberately attacked slowly until everyone was dead.
”Heck! Hostages are useless!”
”And I thought that they loved their fellow tribesmen!”
”Just kill everyone!”
Realizing this, the mercenaries immediately began killing the captured elves. They realized that they had no chance of success. Thus, they showed that they would take the hated elves with them to hell. Everything went according to Prince Nasus’s plan.
In the interim, Thief E and I took advantage of this to infiltrate the Black Auction warehouse. Artifact of Chaos…I still couldn’t feel it.
”Thief E. Where is this Artifact? If we have come this way, and you say that you have mixed something up, I won’t just leave it as is.”
“The noble royal family never lies. Follow me.”
At this time, we heard someone’s screams nearby.
”Manager, the Magic Circle of Spatial Transfer is not working! There is a high-level magician among the invaders blocking it!”
”Manager, the secret escape route is littered! It’s not a natural collapse, but the work of the Spirits of the Earth, so it will be impossible to break through!”
”Manager, using hostages doesn’t work on invaders! When we threatened to kill them, they didn’t even blink an eye!”
Around the large man, whom everyone called the manager, the members of the black market and their mercenaries gathered. Each of them had their luggage with them. They were trying to save the most expensive things to be put up for sale. And it seemed that the Artifact of Chaos was among them.
”Get your dirty hands off me!”
The future elf queen, Sylvia, was also there. Even in the present situation, when she became level 1 and weaker than any villager, she used her sharp tongue. She was wrapped in ropes to the point she looked like a silkworm cocoon. The slender body of the elf hung on the shoulder of a mercenary.
She continued to wriggle like a mermaid whose fins had been cut off.
Goosebumps: Isn’t that metaphor too cruel?!
The people of the Dark Commerce had yet to discover us. Thief E was stealthy, and I blended well with the environment through the protection of nature.
The Magic Circle of Spatial Transference is blocked. The tunnel leading to the surface is blocked. The secret path is blocked. The Dark Commerce quickly concluded that the invaders had blocked all escape routes.
This is the end? No. There is something else.
The manager responded in a sullen tone.
“I am using the Teleportation Magic Circle.”
Teleportation Magic Circle. As the name suggested, this magic circle allowed rapid movement. But unlike the Magic Circle of Spatial Transfer, with the help of which you can move from country to country, with the help of this magic, you can only move a short distance. If you try hard, you will be able to move to the forest on the surface.
But it was stable and safe magic. In the current situation, when it is impossible to use the magic of spatial transfer, this would be the best way to escape. But this kind of magic didn’t allow the movement of large numbers of people. A maximum of two people could be moved at a time. Because of this, the number of people who could escape was limited.
“We’re gaining time, manager.”
”We are glad that we knew you personally.”
”Manager. Take care of my family.”
”Runaway and be sure to take revenge!”
The manager took the beautifully wrapped Sylvia from his subordinate and hefted her on his shoulder. Sylvia pulled out a lucky ticket because she could escape from here with the manager. She got an advantage because of her long ears.
Don’t underestimate how important looks are.
”Thief E, where is the Artifact?”
I don’t care if Sylvia survives. If I get hold of the Chaos Artifact, I won’t hinder her happy life because I am a generous Hero!
”Unfortunately, the manager has it.”
Some invisible thread was trying to connect me with Sylvia all the time.
”Well, I can’t help it.”
Meanwhile, the Teleportation Magic Circle began to glow faintly. It would be activated very soon. I can’t delay it any longer, but I didn’t have to interfere.
Because there is an older brother here who doesn’t want his sister to leave, Prince Nasus burst into the warehouse, breaking through the ring of mercenaries protecting the Magic Circle. With his right hand, he swung the sword, Endymion.
The mercenaries fell to the ground from one blow. Of course, this didn’t reach the Princess of the Sword in her best years, but in such a peaceful time without war, there aren’t many people who can resist such a sword. If someone can, they must be either the Guardian of Humanity or the Hero of the past generation.
And they weren’t here now.
Severed human bodies were scattered everywhere. Their life ended so quickly that they didn’t even have time to ask for mercy.
Prince Nasus, walking in a pool of blood, slowly approached the circle where the teleportation process was being prepared.
Something went wrong due to his intervention, and the glow began to fade.
Endymion’s sword sliced through the manager’s throat, causing him to immediately collapse to the ground.
Sylvia, whom he was holding on his shoulder, also fell. Since she was tied hand and foot, she couldn’t do anything. Her face fell directly to the ground, mixed with blood and dirt.
”My beloved sister Sylvia. Many fellow tribesmen who believed you and followed you died. Your brother doesn’t know how to tell the families of the victims about such a tragedy.”
”How will you atone for your sins?”
Sylvia had only one option. Suicide.
Even during the 2nd playthrough, she was going to bury herself alive. It was very convenient to evade responsibility in this way. I waited for Sylvia to drown in a pool of blood. But apparently, I waited too long.
”Sir Hero, come out. You’re surrounded,” Prince Nasus said in a calm voice.
He didn’t pretend he knew where Lanuvel was. He said it precisely, looking in the direction where I was hiding.
”S-I’m sorry. It seems that he noticed us because of me… ”
The trembling Thief E asked for forgiveness. Prince Nasus was staring not at me with a twinkle in his eyes but at the elf beside me. But Thief E didn’t do anything that could betray us?
Smiling, Prince Nasus continued.
”I remember well the sweet smell coming from your beautiful body. It is useless to erase it with skills. My beating heart and burning soul tell me that you are here! Give up and finally show yourself, sweet creature. And its owner, the Hero too.”
Looking at Thief E, I said.
”Bloody thief. If you keep saying that you are a noble elf, then at least wash. That’s why I cannot deal with women from the fantasy world.”
”This is unfair! It’s some kind of conspiracy!”
“Excuses are a sin.”
Having shut her mouth, I showed myself. We got caught for a stupid reason, but I don’t care.
“Prince Nasus, I thought you were a smarter man.”
What a disappointment.
”Haha! Sir Hero. Love drives people crazy. This is my first time. Let this woman, whom you consider your property, go and give her to me. Then I will allow you to leave in peace. As you know, Sir Hero, if something happens to you here, no one will know about it.”
”So you were expecting my arrival?”
Prince Nasus replied with a smile.
”As your senior, I will give you advice. It’s silly to show yourself just because you’ve been told that you’ve been noticed. Haha! Your Spirits will be useless because you are already within reach. The time in which I can cut you with my sword is faster than the speed the spirits can move.”
”Give her to me. I will make her much happier than when she is your slave.”
”Nasus, you misunderstood something…”
Crack! Tuk, tuk…
Nasus’s body was beautifully split in half.
”I haven’t shown myself?”
There were no eyewitnesses.
Denial: But there is?
After receiving a comment from Miss Trainee, I looked at the ground. Sylvia’s trembling body was stained with the pink entrails and hot blood leaking from her older brother’s corpse.
Our gazes met.
”We met again.”
They say that a first meeting is an accident, but the second is fate. A sweet smile blossomed on my face.
”Hi. I’m a righteous S-rank Hero. Will you say that you are grateful that I saved you and you will die? Or you won’t, and you’ll die anyway?”
I ignored Thief E’s silly question about what the difference was.
