Chapter 41: Break-Out 03
Eh, so bright… or not!
Wai… my face is exposed…
Hime’s eyes were bulging out of her head when she saw me! Argh, now they know who I am! I felt as if I could see her eyes burning with anger…!
However, Father whispered in my ears while I was so surprised that I couldn’t move.
“Anise, heal Lek.”
Oh my, Lek was still on the floor. Huh, I healed him, so why? He can move, can’t he?
Ah, it’s like that?
I looked around and guessed what had happened from all the eyes that were on us.
Hmm, so I’m supposed to show that I’m the Saint here and now?
With that in mind, I stood beside General Lector, who was still covered in blood and lying down, and after striking a cool pose with my hands raised, I healed all of the General’s wounds once again.
Sparkle~, sparkle~, sparkle~.
Well, the sparkles aren’t coming from me. Aren’t these sparkles from Lek’s ‘charm’ skill?
And these sparkles were different from his usual ones; they had materialised in a flashy way for everyone to see.
Is this something that Lek produced? He’s quite clever even though he’s on the ground.
But you see, I’ve already healed the critical parts of his injury earlier, so I only need to heal minor injuries; like the bruises he got when he fell to the floor and healing his scar.
Moreover, when I looked closely at him, I found that he had skilfully dodged and avoided any fatal wounds, so he didn’t seem as badly injured as he looked.
He’s really a soldier.
Well, since I’m already on it, I might as well heal everything up. It’s all better now. His condition is probably better than from before he was slashed. Then I announced in a loud voice, “General Lector, I’ve finished healing you.” I tried to sound as theatrical and gentle as possible.
I was shocked to hear that my voice echoed through the hall better than I thought.
Then, General Lector, who had heard what I had said, slowly stood up and said in a loud and theatrical voice, “Oh! You’re amazing, Saint! There’s no more pain. There aren’t any scars! Wonderful! I’m as good as new! Thanks! My Saint!”
Everyone was stunned by what had happened and we once again left…
“Oh, wait a minute.”
I stopped and quickly walked over the Prince who was still suffering from his crushed knee, put my hand on his knee and quickly healed it.
Well, he’s still young. It would be a pity for him to have damaged legs and not be able to walk from such a young age and it would leave a bad taste in my mouth since I had caused it.
So, I’ll make it seem like it never happened~.
Alright, it’s healed~. Everything’s fine now!
So, I hope you’ll forget about this.
Well, I did do something bad earlier, even though it was a spur of the moment thing. I’m sorry~, hehe.
With that in mind, I forced a smile on my face. Yup, I smiled.
Well, the Prince, who I was smiling at, only muttered, “Saint…” in a daze as if his soul wasn’t there.
Of course, there were some who were courageous enough to try to catch us since we were being slow, even though I had weakened the pain amplification, it was still painful. And just like before, I increased the pain of anyone who moved towards me, so we won’t get caught.
“Sorry to keep you waiting~.”
We were laughing cheerfully and there was no one who could stand and enter within a few meters’ radius of us.
Just before we left the castle, Hime was glaring at me like a demon from the other side of the room, but there’s nothing I can do now that she’s found out who I am.
The Priest must know what he was doing.
No matter if my identity is revealed, or what happens, I will do my best to survive. That won’t change.
I should prepare myself for this.
I’m not the same person as I was when I didn’t know anything and was about to die from an assassin.
I have friends now and skills.
I will continue to make my way through life with everything I have.
I smiled at Hime.
You thought I was dead, didn’t you?
But it’s too bad.
Let’s be clear about this.
I turned towards Hime and said, “I am! The Saint!”
In the end, we added little theatrics, and as a result, the three of us walked out of the castle in a flashy and grand, way just as we had originally planned.
