She's That Knight Known As Zero Book 6 Chapter 129
Volume 6 Chapter 129 Cruel World
"You're not happy for me are you?" Nana asked Rino, the tea party didn't last that long and so before the sun sets they were back in the castle.
"Are you happy then?" Rino asked in return.
"To be honest I am. It's been my wish for so long."
"Then I have nothing to say."
"Tell me, I know you have something."
"Will you let him go? When the time comes?"
"I hope I won't have to."
"You didn't answer my question."
"Not until he shows me that he really doesn't love me, then I will… let him go," Nana sadly said.
"I've already told you, both of you might be together all the time during those five months but that doesn't mean that his feelings have changed already. Your tears back then and his feeling of guilt of actually losing sight of you caused his feelings to waver. He might thought it is because he had liked you already, but I can see it otherwise."
"I know that. That's why I know my dream is about to end now that she has returned."
"Why do you say that? The others already said that there's nothing between them."
"I guess it's because Raven have the same eyes as you awhile ago. The way the two of you looked at her."
"What kind of look?"
"Deep within the suspicion was worry, I wonder why you are worried though," Nana asked as she looked at Rino.
"Must be your imagination. I barely know her. I never even talked to her so why would I worry about her?" Rino replied.
"I don't know, but I'm actually sensitive right now to other people's feelings."
"Who are you?"
Raven invited Eureka for a spar, as soon as he attacked he asked.
"Eureka, who do you think I am?"
"Don't play with me, you two are very much different."
"Oh? In what way?"
Their sword never stopped parrying each other as they speak.
"Your eyes, you might smile and all but your eyes says otherwise. That girl is different she may look annoyed or angry but her eyes shows tenderness. That body might be blind but that doesn't mean that its eyes can't show emotions. So who are you?"
Eureka smirked before she used the force of their sword clash to jump backward.
"What? I'm just having fun and you already want to end it?"
Raven furrowed his brows, it seems that the person in front of him is talking but not with him.
"Of course he wouldn't know, you have his memories-"
"You blabber mouth," in a different tone, Eureka said to herself.
Raven was completely astonished, the way the last sentence was said, it has to be her.
"Is it you now?" he asked.
"What do you think?" Eureka replied as she placed her sword back to its sheath.
"What is really going on?"
"I don't know how I'll answer that," Eureka sighed as she sat down on the ground.
"You're injured?" Raven asked as he approached her and sat down beside her.
"Indeed, I am."
"Is that why someone else is doing things for you?"
"The thing I did would help strengthen my already deteriorating body. But I had a little mishap and got my soul injured. I have to rest while I have the time, it's not a major one compared to when my body was reaching it's limit. A few weeks of sleep would help. I could only ask for you to help me keep quiet about it. The one taking over is a blabber mouth after all."
"You have dual personality?"
"No, it's something else. I suppose you could say that it is my ability."
"That consciousess?" he asked remembering the one he met when he was consuming his ability.
"Yes it is that one. Though this one's a bit special for its not wrecking havoc. *chuckles* It's simply just a blabber mouth. So will you keep quiet about it?"
"I understand. Then let me ask you, what did you do to my memories?"
"That blabber mouth."
"Just answer me Eureka. If that, whoever that is didn't exchange places with you. I'm very sure you'll keep quiet about what you did. I guess you being injured is a blessing in disguise for me. I have been wondering why there are parts of my memory that I can't recollect. Especially of who you are. I had a feeling I already know but I just couldn't grasp it."
"*sighs* It's better this way. I'll apologize for it, but I really can't have people know about it. I'm sorry. Even if it's just a presumption on your side."
Raven looked at her before he too sighed, "Fine I get it. I just hope in the future you won't do this again."
"Thank you, and congratulations. This time it is I who's congratulating you and the princess. I hope you'll have a wonderful time ahead. I shall go back to sleep now."
"Now you have your answer. Do you want to know something else? I can tell you, you know," Eureka's attitude suddenly changed once again.
"I don't need to know it from you. I'll know it eventually once she is willing to tell us. For now, seriously act like her or you'll expose her even more," Raven warned before leaving the training ground.
"Nana?" he was startled to see her outside the training ground.
"Did she tell you?"
"About what? Let me walk you back."
"About the reason why she left?"
"Not directly but I guess I understand what she meant."
"My early death."
Nana's hand on Eureka's shoulder held on tighter. Feeling this, "I already told you, I have stopped it. My body was already deteriorating, I can't completely control it any longer. That's why I have to leave, I need to become stronger."
"How much more do you have to sacrifice? I was once one of those who is unworthy of it. You have saved me, when you whispered to us that we will be waking up soon back on that grand ball, back when mother finally showed herself, when you whispered those words, it brought us happiness. And yet as soon as I woke up, I actually fought against you when in the first place you were saying it for our own sake as well."
"When you said that even you could die, you were referring to your body?"
"This is my home in the first place, even though I grew up somewhere else, everyone was right. This is where I really am supposed to be. So no matter what happens, no matter what others might say, I shall sacrifice everything for this world. I'll make sure that everything ends here," she replied.
The setting sun in front of them makes her look like she is shining. Nana couldn't help but to place her hands in Eureka's waist instead and hugged her tight.
"I'll become strong as well. Stronger in order to stand beside you in saving this world."
(End of Flashback)
"She really is amazing," Nana smiled as she said this.
"What is it Nana?" Raven asked as he pat her head. He is taller than her after all.
Nana looked up at him and smiled before embracing him, "Nothing."
"What are you thinking?" Akihiro asked Rino who was in the balcony.
"I was thinking if we finish this war, will we be complete?"
"Don't worry, no one will die in this war," Akihiro replied as he tap Rino's shoulder.
"I shall go back inside, how about you?"
"I'll follow in a few moment, sleep well father."
When Akihiro left.
"Sir Dai?" Rino called.
"Yes, your highness?"
"You do know, don't you? What Kaoru knows as well."
"Regarding what, your highness?"
"Regarding my sister."
"Kaoru went to escort those from confederate kingdom, can't you at least ease what I'm feeling right now?"
"Is it worry? Or is it fear, your highness?"
"Both? I just couldn't grasp it. My mind and most of all my heart."
"That is the destiny that was given to her, your highness. She was just strong enough to handle herself just fine. Maybe the best thing you could do is to help her as much as you can."
"Our family is truly… pitiful," he smiled bitterly and sadly as if he was completely defeated.
He then looked at Dai, "I want to hold her, I want to tell her it's okay. But I know that will just hurt her even more."
"I was saved by your grandfather. I almost lost my life in the wild but he picked me up and raised me like his own. I have then promised myself that I shall take care of the King and Kaoru like my brothers and treat their children like my own. I can promise you, I'll help her when the need arises. So please be at ease, or your parents..."
"I understand then I'll leave my sister to you. I also know that she is a strong one."
"You have confronted him didn't you?"
"I already have a feeling way back, even before we woke up. I already have a feeling. And everything that had happened made me realize that I was right."
He then looked up once again, "What a cruel world."
