Story of a Country Girl Reincarnated as a Villainess Trying To Avoid a Bad End ~I Tried To Become Stronger Than the Last Boss Because I Don’t Want to Die~ – Chapter 29

Chapter 29: Conflict and Special Training

Meigen looked up at me with a pitiful face.

Even though he had been beaten down, his face was a mess with tears.

I felt sorry for him, but I hardened my heart.

“Why are you…here?”

“I often come to the courtyard. It’s a place where I can be alone and calm down.”

“I see…that’s all.”

“Well, then someone started a fight and it was annoying.”

“…”

Meigen lowered his head.

Very close to the ground.

With a little less effort, his face would be covered in dirt.

“You… were watching.”

“I was shown it. It’s embarrassing to be told that I was peeping.”

“I see…I’m sorry.”

From the bushes, it felt like someone, probably Belfist, would interject, saying it’s true that they were peeping.

Hmm… i also wonder if Bel-san  is silently telling Flare to be quiet?

Unfortunately, their voices were too low for me to hear.

Of course, Meigen, who is lying down, can’t hear them either.

“How long do you plan on lying there? It’s not like your injuries are severe enough to keep you from getting up.”

“…But my body won’t respond.”

“Sigh, you’re really pathetic. I can understand why Leone gave up on you.”

“――!”

Meigen reacted slightly.

Still with his face down.

I spat out words, deliberately provoking him.

“I don’t want to keep such a weak and pitiful person by my side.”

“…”

“Don’t worry. With you being such a wimp…it’ll be easy to kill Leone.”

“――What!”

Finally, he lifted his face.

He showed a look of shock and confusion, looking up at me.

“Kill Leone. . .?”

“Yes, that’s right.”

“Why. . .what are you saying?”

“Do I need to explain the reasons to an outsider like you?”

Rejected by Leone, he was no longer a friend.

He was an outsider to both of us.

He was not in a position to interfere in our problem.

That’s what I wanted him to believe.

But I’m confident.

Confident that he will stand up here.

“. . .I won’t let you.”

He put his hands on the ground, extended his elbows, and pushed his upper body up.

On his knees, then on his feet, he slowly stood up.

Without brushing off his muddy clothes, he faced me directly.

“I won’t let you kill him.”

“. . .why? You’re no longer anything to him, are you? You’ve been abandoned.”

“Even so. . .I don’t want him to die.”

He gritted his teeth.

Meigen Tolomir.

For him, Leone was not just a friend.

Leone was his. . .

“He is. . .my idol.”

Idol.

Yes, Meigen idolized Leone.

With his dignified demeanor and exceptional strength among the students, he 

possessed everything that I lacked.

I admired him and wished to become like him, standing beside him made me 

realize the difference between us.

In the end. . .the problem that Meigen had was inferiority complex.

“I won’t let you kill him. I will. . .”

“Heh, don’t make me laugh.”

I lightly flicked his forehead.

Even though I didn’t hit him that hard, he flew and collided with a tree.

“Guu…”

“If you’re this weak, how do you plan on protecting anyone?”

“. . .I’ll be by his side. . .”

“Leone wouldn’t have someone as weak as you by his side.”

I turned my back to him.

I showed a sign of leaving, but stopped.

“What are you going to do? Just cry and bow your head?”

“. . .”

“While you’re doing that, I’ll kill Leone.”

“I-I’ll stop you.”

I heard his determined words and chuckled softly.

Then, when I turned around, Meigen was glaring at me.

Trembling all over.

I smiled fearlessly.

Like a villainess.

“Fine. Then. . .try to stop me.”

“Uwaaaaaaaah!”

◇◇◇

At the same time the two began to fight, Belfist deployed an isolation barrier.

It wasn’t just any isolation barrier, it distorted the concept of time.

There was a time difference between inside and outside the barrier, and the sense of time inside the barrier was distorted.

One hour outside was about one day inside the barrier.

However, those trapped within the barrier wouldn’t be able to perceive that a day had passed.

They experience time inside the barrier as if it were only an hour.

It was a complicated barrier.

He was able to do this because he was the vessel of the Demon King.

“Well, now that we’re done, let’s go back.”

“Are you sure about that?”

“Don’t worry. The barrier has a time limit, so it will automatically disappear after seven hours have passed in the outside world. It doesn’t matter if I’m not there.”

“I’m not talking about Bel-san, it’s Slayer-san.”

“I’m not worried about you,” Flare said coldly to Belfist.

Belfist chuckled.

from Flare’s line of sight, Slayer was fighting against Meigen.

“Leave her alone… Is she going to be okay?”

“Don’t worry, she’s strong.”

“But… pretending to be a villain… it must be hard for her.”

“…That’s exactly what she wants. She’s acting while fully understanding it. She’s much stronger than we think.”

As they watched Slayer battling ahead, playing the role of a villain and 

sacrificing herself for her goal, Flare felt frustrated that she could only watch.

“Let’s go. We’ll just get in the way if we stay here.”

“…You’re right.”

Clutching her hand tightly over her chest, wishing she had the strength to fight as well, she walks away.
