Count Bastard's Tutor - 316 - Chapter 97. Each Way (2) _
Sylvan was barely freed from the Duke of Sethier.
After struggling to move his shaky leg, he gave a collapsed hug to Perda, who was waiting in front of the north gate.
“You did a great job.
“Oh, my body aches and I’m going to die.
“Was it that hard?”
Silvan, who was making a painful sound, suddenly woke up.
Then he glanced at Perda with his slender eyes.
“Well, there’s no one in the world to trust.Dunnie, that’s exactly right. I asked for help, and I didn’t expect to be hit in the back like this.”
Silban with a sullen look on his face.
Facing him, Perda burst into a smirk.
“I was helping you.”
“……what the h**l?”
“You fought enough today, didn’t you? Then you won’t come to the estate.”
At the answer that followed, Sylvan looked enlightened.
Later, the two climbed on top of Keang.
Then Keang spread his huge wings and flew into the sky in an instant. Perda patted Sylvan on the back while he was cruising through the night sky.
“Now, you’ll see it soon.”
With the horse, I could see a glimmer in the distance.
Port city of Serraheim. It was the port of Quilton. Then Keang went through the harbor at once, and sprinted through the vast sky of the open sea.
Where I promised to come with Sylvan one day.
It was the sea.
Sylvan, who was born in the Cernek forest and lived only in inland areas, had never seen the sea before. So one day, when I overcame all the disasters and wandered around the continent, I promised to go see the sea.
And Ferda has now kept her promise.
When I was looking at the sea that might be the first and last.
Silvan, who had been silent, opened his mouth.
“Well, it’s not as touching as I thought it would be.”
Sylvan scratched his cheek with an awkward face.
“It’s definitely bigger than the lake, but I just feel like I’m looking at the water.”
“You’re already feeling dry.”
“I’m sorry, but I learned all this from you.”
In Sylvan’s counterattack, Perda burst into laughter without saying a word.
While circling the sky in such a cool sea breeze, Sylvan asked as if he had suddenly remembered.
“Oh, come to think of it, there was an ocean in the world where Perda was?”
“Of course. It’s much more colorful and brighter than here.”
“Bright? It’s night time.”
a mysterious look on one’s face to ask again
FERDA talked about the night sea seen from Earth. Every time a detailed description came out of his lips, Sylvan’s eyes twinkled like stars.
After a while, Sylvan said with sparkling eyes.
“It’s amazing. I’d like to go there someday if I have a chance.
“Then I’ll take responsibility and guide you.”
“Yes, I promise.”
If only that day could come. Perda had a bitter smile.
Last but not least, the wide open sea at night.
The two priests’ short trip is over.
The 6th day.
Perda and Sylvan returned to Count Cernek.
After dinner with Isha and other authorities, the two left the main building and headed to the annex in the northeast. Climbing the old stairs, passing the creaking corridor, I arrived in the room at the end.
This is where the whole story began.
So it’s a good place to meet the end of the story.
*Quest time is running out.
*Time Remaining: 01:03:57
*Perform the quest.
*If the quest fails, there will be a huge penalty.
We have about an hour left.
The two sat side by side on the sofa, turning their backs on the door. While looking at the dark blue night sky, Sylvan suddenly opened his mouth.”Remember, when we first met, she didn’t talk to me for three days and just sat here.”
“I did, so I thought it was pretty unusual at the time.”
Sylvan, who nodded, grinned.
“Because the other tutors who came before were eager to introduce themselves somehow and continue their conversations. But Perda was the only difference. He didn’t even make eye contact with me until the day of sword training.”
On reflection, it seemed that way.
By the time he recalled the old days, Sylvan said again.
“I didn’t know we’d be together like this. You said you don’t know a thing about people, but you’re absolutely right.”
I agree with the saying that I don’t know the future of people.
Who knew? I didn’t expect to be in a novel that I used to enjoy.
I’ve been thinking about old memories one by one.
“You know, it’s Perda.”
“What if, what if.”
Sylvan hesitated to speak.
“What would you do if the penalty for failing the quest was lame?”
“Well, we’ll have to weed it out first.”
Weeds named the Norca Empire.
They are enemies of Serraheim and Sylvan. That’s why I couldn’t leave it alone. The primary purpose was to lead the fleet across the sea and create a mess.
“Then what’s next?”
“Well, next… ”
When I was speechless for a moment, I suddenly met Sylvan’s eyes.
It seems like there’s something I want. Perda, who guessed the intention at once, burst into laughter. Then he tapped Sylvan’s head lightly.
“It would be fun to explore the East World with my student.”
“Hehe, as expected, Ferda and I are on the same wavelength.”
a joyous smile
Afterwards, Perda exchanged various conversations with Sylvan.
Mostly a sordid story. There was no silence between the two. Perhaps because of the upcoming quest failure and anxiety about penalties.
Tick, tick, tick!
The moment the clock’s sound was so loud.
The time has finally come.
*Quest timeout exceeded.
*World Quest: Savior (4/4) failed.
*Reward: Myths disappear.
*Penalty due to failure will occur.
The two swallowed dry saliva, not to mention anyone first.
Some time later.
The view turned red, and the penalty was revealed.
*The two personalities of the world cannot coexist.
*Death of this world: Kang Taemin
*Forced repatriation to the original world.
*Time remaining before repatriation: 10:00
Sylvan’s eyes wide open.
Perda, on the other hand, closed her eyes tightly.
In fact, I vaguely expected it. Ever since I heard words that two personalities cannot coexist in one world. That’s why, so for a short period of six days, I searched the place where I had made memories with old-fashioned Sylvans.
There are only a dozen minutes left.
No, there’s not even that left.
Even at this moment, time was going cold-heartedly.
So, Perda opened her mouth.
To prepare for goodbye, to meet the end.
Suddenly, Sylvan opened his mouth first.
“……you know, the truth is.”
He looked this way with a trembling voice.
His eyes tremble as hard as his voice.
“From the moment I knew that Ferda was from another world, I vaguely expected a day like this to come. Of course, I didn’t expect it to happen so suddenly.”
Silvan, who gently closed his mouth, pulled up his mouth.
Like trying to force a smile.”So I thought about what I wanted to say so that when the parting moment comes, I could say it properly without embarrassment.”
I pressed down on my emotions that seemed to overflow like a flood.
With extreme restraint, Sylvan said.
With a gentle smile on his face.
Sylvan bowed his head slowly.
“Thank you for teaching me so far.”
Perda’s eyes broke out.
There was a strong wave of barely grasped emotions. Whether he knew this or not, Sylvan continued to thank him, still bowing his head down.
“I was able to be the main character of the story of the Savior because of you. Thanks to you, I have a goal, I know happiness, and I know why to live.”
Sylvan raised his head and laughed profusely.
“I think I know why I turned back time in the first world.”
A word added at the end.
That was the best compliment for Perda.
As soon as I heard this, something hot rose from the bottom of my heart. Perda bit her lips tightly. I thought I couldn’t look ugly at the last minute.
“The same goes for me.”
Barely controlling his emotions, he opened his mouth.
There was a warm warmth in the way he looked at Sylvan.
“I was happy to teach you.”
I meant it.
Sylvan was his only joy of life.
“You were my family, my friend, my son.”
As you grew up, every day was happy, and my heart was full when I faced disaster. You were my hope, my salvation, my love.
Perda looked up and made eye contact with Sylvan.
He then confessed his true feelings with a warm smile.
“Thank you for being my disciple.”
With that brief thank you.
The color of the timer turned red.
[Time Remaining] : 04:59
When you realize that time really flies.
Suddenly Sylvan jumped into Perda’s arms.
With his face buried in his broad chest, he clutched Perda’s shirt with his slender fingers. Like I’ll never miss it.
After a while, a wet voice was heard.
“……don’t forget me.”
Of course. How can I forget?
I will never forget the moment I close my eyes before I die.
“Please remember that I was there.”
Of course. I’ll always remember.
That I was happy to be with you. And that I’ve reached the end of the story with you.
“And please think of me from time to time because it’s good.”
Don’t ever think about it. You were the most precious thing to me.
When I was whispering quietly, hugging Sylvan’s shoulder.
[Time Remaining]: 00:59
Before I knew it, the breakup was just around the corner.
Then Sylvan hugged Ferda roughly.
“Actually, actually, I don’t want you to go.”
“I’ve lived for Perda so far, and if she goes away, there’s no reason to live.”
The pent-up emotions exploded in unison.
The river of tears, which was full of purple eyes, flooded.
Thick tears streamed down the grey skin. With the emotions that I’ve been strugglinged.
“I, I only need Perda…”
Then I don’t need everything else.
Sylvan’s eyes were shouting like that. At the last moment of parting, Sylvan finally revealed his true feelings.
“I told you I’d be with you forever. You said you’d stay with me until I didn’t need you!”
I didn’t mean to do this.
For the last time, I wanted to break up nicely at the last minute. I wanted to say goodbye neatly, as I’ve done so far.[Time Remaining]: 00:19
But it didn’t work out.
At the end of the day, his real intention came out. It was because the memories we had built together were so many that we couldn’t suppress them all.
“No, no, no! Perda, please don’t go. Don’t leave me alone.”
Sylvan burst into tears just like a child.
The figure was finally stamped on her eyes, so Perda couldn’t hold back her tears. Clear tears flowed down, squeezing closed eyes. The two priests embraced each other and said what might be their last words.
But even before the two of them started talking.
[Time Remaining]: 00:00
*Return to the original world begins.
With the sad sobbing of Sylvan.
Perda’s vision quickly became dark.
