“Me? Save this country?”
The expressionless way in which those words were uttered. Even the voice that accompanied it was void of emotion, extremely inorganic.
“Until the time comes, don’t unnecessarily stick your nose in our business. Otherwise, you won’t be able to make a choice again.”
That was a solid warning.
For him, it was a precisely drawn borderline.
Tedla still didn’t have the preparedness to step forward from there.
While following Syltina who walked ahead, Tedla remembers the conversation they had earlier.
Syltina said that I will understand in time.
That I will understand everything when the journey ends.
Yes. That’s. What. She. Said.
“…… she didn’t even hide it.”
She gave me the information without even hiding, dodging, or much less even sealing her mouth.
It may be something that cannot even be called ‘information’, but, it was still enough to understand that they, The Dipterous Sword, were. up. to. something.
In other words, that is……
“So, I’ve come to a point where I cannot stop, because I know something now……”
Tedla suddenly understood as soon as he mentioned it out loud.
“Ahh…… so, we were wrong from the beginning……”
Yes, we were surely wrong 2 years ago.
We were making irreparable mistakes since 2 years ago.
At that time, today’s reality might have been already decided.
The fate of the country might have already been decided from the time we blamed the girl called ‘Syltina Balratona’, and exiled her abroad.
She……who once loved this country more than anyone else, who made every effort for the country’s sake, now said that it was ‘hateful’.
She said that she loathed it to the point that she could destroy it.
Ahh, without a doubt.
She never had the intention of helping from the start.
Be it the country or the Saintess, she completely did not have the intention of saving either.
“A choice, huh?”
It’s as she said.
I have to make a choice.
I was lucky enough to even be given a choice.
Then, what about the people who weren’t given any?
That’s kind of a foolish question.
Tedla shook his head and decided not to think of the names of the people that came to mind.
“If you ask me to choose, then I have already made up my mind……”
Ever since then, I have regretted, lamented, and repented for my actions 2 years ago.
“I will never betray you ever again.”
I want you to smile at me once again.
That is all.
With a jerk, he clenched his fist as if to swear an oath.
And, that choice, will greatly change Tedla’s fate, thereafter.
