Chapter 6 – Final Examination ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ ▼ (Part 6)
With the blood gushing out, splashing towards his whole body, Junpei looked to the sky with trembling shoulders.
「The second one……」
When Junpei was overcome by deep emotions with a blank expression. Ami walked towards him.
「I know that there’s a lot of things that you want to ask and say to me」
Although Judy was already half-dead, Junpei has his own thoughts about killing her as well.
He killed her not for self-defense, but for his own gains.
That was not something to be proud of, and it was also outside of Junpei’s own virtue……it was completely vile.
「Let’s talk later. Right now……can you be quiet for a while?」
「What do you mean?」
「This guy isn’t dead yet……no, he’s not incapacitated yet」
Ami looked at Harada who was lying down under Junpei.
「He doesn’t look like he’s alive though……how can you tell that?」
「I’ll tell you because it’s you, butーーI have an ability to steal skills. You saw it earlier right? In the case where I want to steal skills, they would turned into skill cards. But, right now, that didn’t happen」
When Ami was about to continue, Junpei interrupted her and said.
「That’s why, don’t talk anymore. You’ve seen how dangerous this guy is right? I need to concentrate my whole sensesーー」
「That’s really hard to believe just by listening……but, if I’m correct, that guy wanders around possessing human bodies right?」
A total of three shotsーーthe dry sound of the Ｓ＆Ｗ Ｍ５７ echoed.
「The main body, this thing in pieces right now with those shots……isn’t this worm-like thing it?」
Ami was pointing near the back of Junpei. There was a 10 cm worm corpse split into pieces.
「It silently appeared when Junpei was concentrating on that guy. It’s a common escaping skill that monsters use……it’s similar to teleportation in short distances……so I quickly figured it out. He’s acting dead……or rather, it’s like cutting off a lizard’s tail, with the main body escaping」
「……oi oi, are you serious?」
Ami continued her words with the dumbstruck Junpei losing his.
「It tried to approach Junpei, so probably……it tried to possess Junpei’s body, I guess?」
Junpei swallowed his breath.
“What would’ve happened if Ami was not here……”, Junpei felt cold shivers similar to fear and let out a deep sigh.
「Really, I can’t really tell whether you’re a useful or a useless woman」
「n? At the least, I was useful now right?」
“Yeah”, Junpei nodded and rubbed Ami’s head.
「Ami? I want to ask something」
「Do you have anything to say, with me killing Judy-san?」
Ami honestly shook her head vertically.
「I have some thoughts about it. That person fought to protect us too」
「But, I don’t have anything to say to Junpei」
「We would’ve died if you didn’t do that right? I’m not shameless enough to blame you for saving our lives, and I don’t think that Junpei’s choice was wrong as well」
「No, rather, I think that it’s the kind of strength to live in this world」
Junpei looked up to the sky and tried to hide his tears that almost appeared from Ami.
「You, you know」
「You’re such a good woman」
「You just noticed it now?」
And, there, Junpei dropped a fist on Ami’s head.
「But……was it alright?」
Ami asked Junpei feeling really bad about something.
「n? What are you talking about?」
「You…………you can steal skills by killing your opponents right?」
「Yeah. You should know this, but……you mustn’t tell anyone」
「That guy earlier……shouldn’t he have amazing skills? I’m the one who killed him you know?」
And there, Junpei sucked his breath.
「As I’ve thought, I can’t really tell whether you’re useful or not」
「Hey, uhm, can I ask one thing too?」
「You’re, also, pretty much……spaced out sometimes huh?」
“Haha”, the two of them shook hands.
「Just, well……it’s not like there’s no harvest you know? You’re the one who killed the main body, but it looks like its treated that I’m the one who killed the puppet」
Nakabayashi’s corpse that Harada left was turned into light particles.
What was left was one card.
「Extreme Skill【Physical Laws Intervention Authority】……huh」
As a bonus effects, +500 was added to all status.
As the main effectーー
As usual, it was gibberish.
However, this skill is probably……the prerequisite of the powers used by Harada, the girl that named herself a dragon, and the girl that he had met in his dreams in the labyrinth many times.
And there, Ami raised her voice.
「What is it?」
She started to tremble while looking at her status plate.
「n? What is it really?」
She paled as if she had seen something unbelievable, and dropped to her knees.
「For the third time, what is it?」
「My level……it increased up to 245 from 40」
After thinking for a moment, Junpei opened his mouth.
「With Harada’s level, I don’t think that it would be weird even if it increased up to 500 though. Well, although it’s the main body, it doesn’t have that much fighting strength after all……」
Ami was completely dumbfounded hearing those words.
「Y-You’re really saying that with a casual face……? Seriously, you’re too ridiculous……what kind of life did you have until now……」
