I passed on the information I had gleaned from the soldiers to Nina.
Nina listens “hmmm” with a serious expression.
“That’s what I’d been heard. As for me, I think the best option is to remain calm and let the Asualev Allied Forces subdue the Fourlock.”
From what I’d heard from the soldiers, Fourlock’s character hates killing. In other words, even if we just sit back and watch with our hands crossed, it is unlikely that human casualties will be brought to Wishside.
If we don’t do something, Fourlock will get mad and start invading Jorgen.
However, the Asualev Allied Forces are gathering in Jorgen, and no matter how many Seven Star Squadron there are, it is unlikely that a single platoon will be able to break through.
The Asualev Allied Forces slaughtered Fourlock and end it. That should certainly be the best way for Nina to survive.
Nina doesn’t respond to any of my suggestions.
Well, that’s to be expected.
If this measure is taken, there will be some damage to both armies.
The reason for this is Nina Yuresh herself.
She’s probably heartbroken that she’s causing it to happen.
“You can’t help it, can you?”
“It’s for the best, isn’t it? Ragnus is thinking of me and telling me so.”
She said affirmative words to my opinion as if to say to herself.
I thought for sure she was going to have a weird sense of justice run amok again. ……
Maybe she had some kind of change of heart in these few days of being away.
If that’s from Scarlett’s advice, then I’m a little grateful to her.
“Well, that’s originally my plan. But there’s more more thing I need to tell you.”
I told that to Nina, who was still trying to force herself to accept it.
She briefly said, “What?” and looked at me with a strange look.
“Originally, I’d go with the idea I just gave you. But the circumstances are different this time.”
“Circumstances are different?”
Nina returns my words like a parrot.
“Yeah. That’s what the bat there told me. I need to get to Wishside. And then help Nina. Although I have no idea what I’m supposed to do.”
Plus, that time, Scarlett told me to think.
Which is why I’ve come to the conclusion that I need to go to Wishside.
At the time, I still didn’t know exactly what I was going to do when I came here, but based on Nina’s current words and actions, I gradually began to see the light.
This time Nina heard Scarlett’s words and stopped in her actions.
In other words, even if I hadn’t made a move, Nina would have survived without suicide attacking Fourlock guy.
So what did Scarlett mean when she said to save Nina, save her alive?
Perhaps it’s just my guess because it’s confusing when I ask Scarlett, but this doesn’t mean to save lives, but to help.
I’m gonna help Nina accomplish what she needs to accomplish.
If she meant that I should take care of Fourlock’s squad, it makes sense that Scarlett would have wanted me to come here.
But then, what I can’t figure out is why it has to be me.
If Fourlock would be defeated anyway, it shouldn’t make any difference whether it’s me or the Asualev army.
Oh, I’m getting a bit confused.
Scarlett should have told me straight away.
Then, apologetically, Nina opened her mouth.
“What is it?”
“I know you might disagree, but can I just tell you what I want to do now?”
I was a little confused because she said it so softly.
Maybe if she had been like this from the start, we would have been more careful about a lot of things.
I don’t blame her for this, though.
“I’m trying to help Fourlock-san.”
I couldn’t help but let out a bare chuckle.
What the hell is this girl talking about?
“Uh, I knew it, didn’t I? Sorry.”
Nina laughed apologetically with ahaha.
“It’s funny, isn’t it, we’re enemies afterall….”
“Yes…. As you said yourself…”
I was about to say more, but I stopped myself from saying it.
Something’s bugging me. I don’t know what it is.
“Hey, can I ask you why you think that?”
In the meantime, if I ask her why, she might find this tricky.
Nina showed a slight pretense of thinking and answered with an expression that did not float.
“From the impression I got from your story, Ragnus, he doesn’t seem like a bad person. If you think, if he continues like this, whether he retreat or invade, he will only have a future of death. ……”
“So you wanted to help him?”
“When you say he doesn’t seem like a bad person, did you think that from the fact that he hates killing?”
“Also, from what I’ve heard that Wishside hasn’t suffered much either.”
“You’re so naive.”
“I thought so myself.”
Nina’s shoulders slumped.
Oh dear, it may be what Scarlett calls a noble intent, but how does she come up with such an idea? How can she think of helping the enemy?
I think there’s something wrong with her head…….
“Helping the enemy……”
I’ve been thinking about taking down Fourlock, but what if I do what Nina said with her insane head?
At least it seems impossible for Nina to do it alone, or maybe it is. The other party is one of the Seven Star Squadron. It’s impossible, no matter how many gold-colored skills Nina has.
But I have [Peerless], and a random skill that depends on luck. If I work with Nina, I can see the possibilities. That’s why I need to come here.
And then there’s the need to be us. The only people who would want to help Fourlock at this point in time are us, or more accurately, Nina. This also makes sense.
No, I honestly don’t want to think about it, but don’t tell me this is what Scarlett was talking about?
Nina looks at me with a mixture of apprehension.
Perhaps Nina will back off this time if I say no. That’s what her expression says.
If you think about it normally, it would be to defeat him. However, in this situation, the point is help him.
Which is it? Which is right?
Defeat him or help him?
Nina remains silent, waiting for my next words.
The best option is …….
I called Nina’s name briefly.
Nina jerked and responded with a short “yes”.
I decided to bet on the path that Scarlett had shown me rather than normal or anything like that.
“I’ll take your idea this time.”
I’m willing to do that.
