The Weakest Summoner’s School Conquest – I Became Strong Only After Losing – Chapter 145

𝐀𝐬 𝐮𝐬𝐮𝐚𝐥

Upon returning to the dormitory, Kid stumbled upon Albero and Ridelle having tea.

Both wore serious expressions. Kid was certain it was about him.

Regardless, he set the bottle of liquor he held onto the table.

Seeing Kid, Albero hesitantly inquired.

“Hey, Kid. . . . . .that.”

“Hmm?”

“What?”

“A glass and ice.”

“. . . . . .Understood.”

Kid lifted the bottle, asking Albero before he could speak.

Obediently, Albero prepared a glass and ice. Normally, Ridelle would snap, “Do it yourself!” but she remained silent today.

Kid poured the whiskey, a gift from Garnet, into the glass Albero handed him and took a light sip.

“Phew. . . . . .quite strong. But it’s good liquor.”

“”…””

Albero and Ridelle stayed silent.

Kid sighed lightly, muttering as if talking to himself.

“. . . . . .Sorry about that.”

“”Huh?””

“About this time. I’ll tell both of you. . . . . .by the way, where are the others?”

Ashe and Lapis took Leivinia to the bath. Nisrok was sound asleep. Yorha returned to the castle, saying there were remaining tasks.

Just when they were about to have a conversation, things got so messed up like this. Kid chuckled and poured whiskey.

Since it’s a rare occasion, let’s invite Ridelle.

“Hey Ridelle, have a drink.”

“Uh, I don’t really drink. . . . . .”

“It’s fine once in a while. We could let that underage brat over there drink, but Garnet might complain.”

“Hey! Who are you calling an underage brat?”

“You. Still fifteen.”

“I’m almost sixteen! I can handle a drink!”

“Alright, alright. Join in then.”

For the time being, it became a light evening drink until Ashe and the others finished bathing.

Kid gradually started to get back to their usual self. Albero felt that way.

Ridelle, sipping whiskey slowly, also felt a bit of the haze lifting.

Then, Ashe and the others in their pajamas arrived.

“Phew. . . . . .Oh, Kid? You’re back.”

“Welcome back. Did grandmother drink you too much?”

“Alcohol, huh? Tastes funny! I want to try!”

“Sit down, I have something to discuss.”

Finally, everyone was present (except Nisrok).

Kid finished his whiskey and spoke of his battle with Florentia.

◇◇◇◇◇◇

“. . . . . .Well, that’s about it.”

“Seriously? Men’s attacks don’t work. . . . . .”

Kid told them.

About Florentia’s ability, and Kid’s defeat.

He didn’t mention his own past. He doesn’t plan to.

Then, Ridelle spoke.

“. . . . . .Well, then, it’s me.”

“No way. That’s my prey. . . . . .I thought you’d say that.”

“But.”

“But what? Forget it. Listen, the reason I’m talking to you guys is that I thought it’d be best to explain. It doesn’t change the fact that she’s my prey. . . . . .I’ll say it as many times as needed. Don’t get in the way of my revenge.”

“But, Kid, you can’t defeat her.”

“So what?”

“You’re too obsessed with revenge, the demon. . . . . .”

“Don’t you dare say that!!”

Kid shouts at Ridelle.

It seems like Ridelle felt it was a slip of the tongue, as she covers her mouth.

“You’re the one to talk after Hublis destroyed your family and village? Just think back to what you did when you realized Hublis was your enemy. The pretty words coming out of your mouth make my skin crawl.”

“. . . . . .I’m sorry.”

“This is my fight. It’s not about weaknesses, abilities, or compatibility. It’s about me killing 『Lust』 with my own hands.”

“. . . . . .”

Everyone fell silent.

Kid picked up an empty liquor bottle and stood up.

“Let’s start over. 『Lust』 will appear again. Don’t get in the way next time.”

“””””. . . . . .”””””

“And. . . . . .from tomorrow, act normally. I can’t stand the suffocation.”

Leaving those words, Kid returned to his room.
