Chapter 26: The guiding voice
I guess I got separated from Bern and Rashid.
It appears to be different from the road I’ve been on. I’m not sure where I am, but the scenery is very similar.
At times like this, the theory is to stay put and wait for help.
The natural stones, however, sparkled and blinked all around me. They seemed to be inviting me into the natural corridor.
“Hmm. How should I proceed? It’s as if it’s directing me to the blinking light, but…”
I hesitated for a moment before accepting the invitation to the corridor.
The stones’ flashing lights lead me to a large space. It has the shape of a dome.
There, too, the whole area was covered with natural stones, and it was a fantastic sight.
“Greetings, guided ones.”
I can hear a voice. The voice belongs to a woman.
“Huh? Is anyone there?”
I look in every direction but can’t find her.
“What is your wish?”
The voices echo again, but as usual there’s no sign of anyone.
“What is my wish? that the third Kureina battle will not take place?”
I could hear voices and no one was there, but for some reason I was talking to myself.
If the Third Kureina War doesn’t happen, Okaa-sama doesn’t have to die, and I do not want Bern and I to become enemies.
“Oh child who has the favor of the spirits. Your wish will be granted.”
And my vision flipped once more.
“Kii~yui! “Kui Kiiyui!”
Ruria’s voice comes to mind. He sounds concerned, as if he’s calling for me.
When I open my eyes, I see Ruria’s dull eyes welling up with tears. Was I unconscious?
When I got up to check on my condition, I sat against the wall with Ruria on my lap.
“Why are you crying, Ruria?”
Ruria jumped on me, and I grabbed him tight.
“Ruria, don’t cry. I’m all right.”
I let my mind wander while comfortingly petting Ruria, trying to sort out the events of what happened so far in my head.
I went to the Cave of Wishes with Bern and Laseid, but we got separated on the way.
Then, in the dome-like room, I heard a voice…
“Now that I think about it, why is Ruria here?”
Ruria is supposed to be staying with Layleigh-san.
“Did you come after me because you were worried?”
Ruria nodded as I wiped his tears.
“Thank you, Ruria… now let us all go find Laseid and Bern.”
Ruria spreads and flaps his tiny wings as I stand up.
Alone, I feel uncomfortable, but with Ruria, I feel relieved.
I was so relieved that I didn’t even realize I was holding something.
