FFF-Class Trashero - Chapter 252
Chapter 252 – [13Th Round] Prophet
“That decision feels a little unjust, but since the president of the student council is trying so hard, I think I’ll step aside.”
They apparently even held a meeting to resolve the problems that would arise the moment I returned.
Explanation: In short, they want to write you in history not as the Hero, but as a legendary Prophet who made life on three continents better.
Not the Hero, but a Prophet?
I had provided this unsanitary Fantasy World with flush toilets, so I thought that title suited me just right.
Caution: Aren’t you angry?
‘Hmm? No, not a bit. It’s okay, Trainee Teacher.’
I had no affection or any regrets about not getting the Hero job.
For the past 65— no, 77 years, my goal was to become the “Righteous Hero” and ultimately return to Earth.
I didn’t even need a high school diploma.
For as long as I could take my son back home with me, I would be content.
And all the preparations for that had already been completed.
Ssosia had regained some of her rights over the system, so I thought nothing could prevent me from leaving Fantasy now.
Now I just needed the blessing of the shameless teaching staff.
They wouldn’t be able to threaten me with force anymore.
“Hey hubby, I need to tell you something.”
“Wait! Hubby?! When did my boyfriend get married?! This is the first time I’ve heard about this! Are you… the Second Demon?! Are you posing as the Hero’s wife? Your arrogance is unbelievable!”
“We’ll talk about that later…” Ssosia, though wanting to tell me something, turned her gaze to the student council president.
I wasn’t particularly interested in what those two women wanted to talk about, so I decided to listen to my sweet and beautiful Trainee Teacher instead.
‘Please continue, Trainee Teacher.’
Reluctance: The faculty meeting wanted you to become the Prophet and work as the Hero’s companion instead. In doing so, the reward promised to you will be retained. If you help her kill the Demon Lord, you will immediately receive your rewards.
Not the Hero, but a companion of the Hero!
It wasn’t a bad idea, even though the faculty members were the ones who submitted it, but I had already wasted too much time.
Eighty-five years in the Fantasy World?
On Earth, that was eight years and six months.
By Earth standards, I was already well over twenty, and it was around that age that young people graduated from university and got a job.
I even planned everything.
I would sell all the treasures I had collected during my adventures and open my own cafe in a prestigious area using Saintess H and Ssosia as workers.
Even if the coffee we served didn’t taste good, I still most likely wouldn’t go bankrupt.
As for myself, I would focus on the anime, movies, and books that I missed while I was stuck dealing with savages in another world.
Reassurance: You described everything in great detail!
‘Come whenever you want. I’ll treat you to coffee at my own expense!’
Just by having her sit in my cafe and drink my coffee, my business’s revenue would double.
Laughter: I will definitely visit you if I go to Earth. Oh! The other students who were with you in F class were destroyed by the Demon Lord and were promoted to B class.
They were annihilated, but they ended up getting a promotion?
Explanation: The Demon Lord is extremely powerful in the secondary education course. If you manage to kill him, you’ll be able to graduate immediately. However, if you fail, you will be transferred to another class equal to your grade instead. The higher your class, the higher your chances of success will become since you’d be with even more capable students.
I didn’t know about that, but I was going to kill my father-in-law anyway.
It made no difference now.
“Earth is already waiting…”
“Hey, hubby, we need to talk.”
Ssosia ended her conversation with the student council president and, putting her lips next to my ear, whispered.
“Have you forgotten what I was talking about?”
I didn’t. She said it took time to take control of the system.
If I borrowed her authority and returned to my planet now, the “First Angel” would immediately notice.
I would love to go back home and apologize to my parents for my long absence at this moment, but what about revenge with the accumulated interest?
I couldn’t resist the system since it had limitless possibilities. I would need to either drag her over to my side or remain neutral. Otherwise, it would be difficult to deal with the entire teaching staff.
How could this problem be solved?
Ssosia needed to gain more control over the system than they had.
Parents vs. Revenge.
Without hesitation, I reached a conclusion.
“I will become a companion of the Hero.”
That was a tough decision, considering I would be risking getting my head smashed in with my mother’s tennis racket because of it!
Luck: Thank you so much, cadet Kang Han Soo! Since you’ve already agreed, I can tell you this now. If you refused, I would have been scolded by my superiors. Thanks again!
‘Always tell me when you’re in trouble, Trainee Teacher!’
No matter how scary my mother’s tennis racket was, I would always willingly endure for my secret friend.
She didn’t need to take care of everything alone.
As it turned out, the members of the faculty were actual monsters.
They blamed everything on an intern who didn’t even have any rights or authority over any decisive moments and threatened that they’d do something to her if she failed.
Such teachers had no right to raise fair and just heroes.
If anyone looked at it a little deeper, they’d easily find out that it was their fault that the First Hero turned into a bastard.
In any case…
“I need to take a look at the current situation first.”
As the saying went, seven nannies made an incompetent child. If the student council president did a good job, I would only provide indirect support and avoid interfering with the process.
However, it would be a different matter if she didn’t.
“Sir Hero! How could you! You left me, an armless harpy, alone for 12 years!” complained the Snow Woman, running out to meet me.
I had no excuses, so I silently listened to her complaints before turning to her for help.
“I’m glad you didn’t turn into a fried chicken. I know that you have many complaints, but can you tell us about the current situation here first?”
The Snow Woman knew everything in great detail.
At the moment, including me, there were four heroes in total.
My senior, from the first generation of heroes.
Me, the representative of the second generation.
And two heroes from the third generation.
The First Hero, who stubbornly refused to surrender, had already demonstrated that he was powerful even without the support of the “Goddess of Fantasy.”
I was the Second Hero, and I was worshiped on the Northern, Western and Southern Continents as a real legend.
Three years after my disappearance, two third-generation heroes appeared. One of them was the student council president I knew, and the other was a guy receiving support from the Goddess of Fantasy.
At my praise, the Snow Woman’s expression immediately changed.
“So, who are you going to stick around with after you retire?” Ssosia asked.
I didn’t think about it too much.
“The student council president.”
“Because she’s your girlfriend?”
“No, but I can’t deny that right away either. She just came to me first and pretended we were close. She’s a better option than a guy I haven’t even met yet.”
It was better to be in a place where I was welcome.
Why would I give myself unnecessary stress?”
“I’m surprised. You’ve become a dummy yourself. I thought you wouldn’t join any group and run away instead.”
Laughing, I gave a short answer.
“I’m all about relaxation now.”
“Because you got stronger?”
“If I had been in control right from the beginning, everything would’ve been different. I was weak back then, though.”
In the 1st round, although I knew my companions’ plans would fail, I couldn’t stop them.
During a mission to secretly infiltrate an enemy camp, we were surrounded and almost got killed because they spontaneously decided to save a girl being abused in there.
Not having the strength to contain them was my fault.
However, it was different now.
Hero Sieg was a complete disappointment, but the achievements of Hero Luke, whom I met in the 10th round, impressed me.
Thanks to the guide he acquired on Earth, our journey went smoothly.
All I had to do was follow him, almost as if I moved from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat.
“I thought that persistence was your only positive quality, my husband, but you turned out to be lazy. I already saw this coming when you said you’d hire me to work in your cafe while you’re messing around and tending to unimportant matters, though.”
“I’d rather laze around than destroy everything around me and kill people. Hahaha!”
“What? Wasn’t it funny?”
“Not a bit. That just made me feel like I need to improve the system as soon as I can to avoid creating more victims like you.”
Ssosia looked at me with pity.
“How about taking care of yourself and your future first? You became the wife of the victim you speak of, after all.”
“Oh! That’s true! It appears I’m actually the unhappiest one here. Thank you so much for reminding me. I’m about to burst into tears.”
If someone else saw us, they would think that I was the bad guy here. But in reality, that wasn’t the case.
It was Ssosia who, without my consent, signed the marriage contract and certified it.
I was the victim here! I was forced to marry without consent!
“It depends on how you look at it. My husband, whom I perceived only as a stupid hero, was actually a genius who took advantage of my helplessness to instill the idea of marriage in me.”
“Why don’t you write novels?”
History was indeed repeating itself.
Two years after my disappearance, the Dwarf Prince died.
The reason was unknown.
Sorrow: The First Hero incited the Dwarf Prince. He asked to create a masterpiece capable of killing the Demon Lord. That’s how the first Holy Sword came into existence. However, the prince put all his strength into it, causing him to die of overwork. The enraged dragon was then killed by the sword that her beloved created.
And as of this moment, the Queen of Wisdom Malfari was at war against my senior due to the Dwarf Prince’s death.
About ten years passed that way.
In the real story, the First Hero, his companions, and his support group defeated Malfart without any problems. However, now the story had changed due to a natural disaster at sea, resulting from which many of the Hero’s companions died.
“It seems all of his remaining companions have already been dealt with.”
The deserted house, which the owner left, became the lair of the Hero.
The student council president, as befitted a female hero, had mostly handsome guys as companions.
Half of them were just ordinary members of her support group, though.
There were only a few actual companions among them.
“Sword King, Mercenary King, and Sage, huh? The woman claiming to be your girlfriend seems to be capable too. She’s collected three of the most powerful men among companions. But the Elf King isn’t among them.”
“Heeheehee! That’s because I didn’t side with the elves. Spiritless elves are useless as companions.”
“You’ve disturbed the course of history too much, aunt.”
“There’s nothing you can do. After all, I have received the other half of Drug Hero’s paired rings! Heeheehee!”
“You have such a strange laugh… Wait, paired rings? What are you talking about?”
While the First Spirit and the Second Demon talked about some nonsense, I examined the three men Ssosia was talking about.
Sword King Alex, who survived the incident at sea, looked pathetic.
I thought that savage was loyal, but he left my senior and chose the student council president.
The Sage’s betrayal was a natural course of action, so I wasn’t particularly surprised by it.
His love for the Mermaid Princess Aqua seemed to have disappeared already. Right now, he was smiling broadly while staring at the student council president.
I understood him, though.
An urban beauty was much more attractive than a provincial girl, after all.
And finally, the Mercenary King.
The most powerful companion that could be hired on the Eastern Continent.
By his name alone, one could already deduce that he was the strongest among the mercenaries. He wielded gigantic swords as easily as he would use kitchen knives.
He looked like a forty-year-old man, but in fact, he was twice that age.
His physique was what I was aiming for.
He had impressive height, broad shoulders, and rigorous muscles.
“I remember him being talkative.”
Unlike dragons, who became more naive with age, the Mercenary King possessed wisdom appropriate to how old he was.
For a long time, I failed to hire him, as he valued his life and asked for high fees for his services.
That made me think the student council president had a lot of money.
“Oppa, please help me.”
She was probably wealthy, but she had no conscience at all.
“You’re older than me, so don’t call me oppa.”
“Oh, didn’t you know? Women stop aging at 19. Moreover, I treat all men with beards as my oppa.”
Like a student before the final exams, Dad was always worried when my mom called him oppa.
I didn’t know if that was still the case. About nine years had passed since I last saw them, after all.
“So you’re the Hero of the second generation. I’ve heard many rumors about you.”
An annoying male voice made its way into my ears.
Of course, the student council president also annoyed me because she called me oppa, but the man had an aggressive tone, unlike her.
His hair, eyes, armor, weapons, clothes…
Everything about him was golden in color.
Race: Great Human of the Apocalypse
Job: Hero (Experience 500%)
Skills: Sword Mastery G, Evasion ZZZ, Immortality ZZ, Annihilation ZZ, Control ZZ, Flight ZZ, Vitality Z, Slaughter Z, Summon Z, Fortitude Z, Divination Z, Judgment Z, Pride Z, Willpower Z, Strength Z, Senses Z, Endurance Z, Overcome Z, Stamina Z, Negotiation Z, Track Enemy Z, Recovery Z, Immunity Z, Resistance Z, Divinity Z, Blessing Z, Honor Z, Perception Z, Patronage Z, Luck SSS…
Status: Holy Dragon, Holy Sword, Divine, Sacred…
His stats were impressive, as befitted his flamboyant appearance!
The female companions behind him, whom the student council president didn’t recruit, made him look even brighter.
“You know me?”
“Of course. Aren’t you that flawed student being talked about in so many rumors in the higher education class? I see you have no companions, so how about working for me? As a senior, I can teach you… to…
His voice instantly died down the moment his gaze dawned upon Ssosia, who was standing next to me.
At first, I thought he was staring at her breasts, but then I realized he was looking at her skills.
“What? Is this your first time seeing a GG-rank demon?”
“That’s impossible… Huh?!”
The G-rank Hero’s face turned blue. It seemed that he just now noticed the spirit puffing on my head.
“What? Is this the first time you’ve seen a drugged spirit?”
My boastful senior suddenly folded his hands onto his lap and bowed.
“I apologize for wasting your time with my noisy greeting. Call me anytime you need help.”
He then disappeared like the wind.
“My boyfriend is so cool! Even a student from the higher education course is inferior to him!”
The student council president immediately approached me with a sly expression on her face.
What was up with her surprise attack?
“Ah, oppa! You just took my breath away with that scene!”
“Do you want me to strangle you?”
Thus began the journey of the shameless Hero and her great companions!
A little later, Trainee Teacher announced that the other Hero had voluntarily resigned.
