The World’s Academy Will Perish in 100 Days 9

The World's Academy Will Perish in 100 Days 9

Chapter 9 – The Talkative Girl of the Deep Forest (4)

Today, too, I woke up in a shattering world.

“…”

The sun shining through the cracks in the windows dazzled my eyes. No matter how much I covered my eyelids, the brilliant light source was so hot that I felt like I would go blind if I stayed still.

Who is the great man who put the dormitory window on the east side? If I met him, I felt like stabbing him in the eye. Of course, it was a world where I couldn’t even know his name, let alone his life and death, so I sighed and got up.

“Ha…”

Is it going to be a messy day like always? It was only after lamenting that I remembered the fact that I had decided to go to the academy today. Naturally, my head was pounding and my whole body seemed to lose all strength.

Still, I couldn’t put off what I was supposed to do. I groped for my backpack lying on the floor to get ready to go out.

However, no matter how much I moved my hand, the backpack was not caught.

“Well…?”

When I raised my head in doubt, I noticed the backpack hanging on the wall. Come to think of it, there was a nail stuck in that place. Back in the days when the academy was fine, I used to hang it up there, but these days it’s annoying and I’ve forgotten its existence for a long time.

Only then did I turn my head and look around the room. It wasn’t just the location of the backpack that had changed. Even the window sills were dirty and dusty. The floor was a mess with food stains and blood stains. The desk, where all kinds of things were placed busily, was also cleaned.

It was as if a hidden fairy had visited. However, since I am not a dementia patient, I knew that none of this was the work of the fairies. There was only one candidate I could think of.

“Should I buy it?”

“Oh, Lope.”

When I called my name, pointy ears popped up from the bathroom. I tilted my head at that strange location selection.

“What are you doing there?”

“I know it’s rude, but there’s a spider attached to the ceiling… Wait. It’s almost done.”

“Spider? But the ceiling must be high.

“No, it’s not that I can’t reach it… Ugh!”

Pop!

“Should I buy it?”

“Ah…”

Then, a light explosion sound was heard, followed by Saya’s vain breathing. After wrestling inside for a long time, she belatedly came out of the bathroom.

Surprisingly, Saya looked no different from yesterday. Her hair was as perfectly clean as it was yesterday, with no slicks or curls or anything disheveled.

If I had to find fault with her old ways, it would be the soot on her right hand. Even that, when I stared at it, hurriedly hid it behind me.

“Now there won’t be any spiders or something sticking to it. There’s some soot on one side of the ceiling… But don’t worry, it’ll disappear soon.”

“Ah…Yes. Thank you. But what were you doing?”

“I woke up a little early, so I thought I’d do some tidying up.”

“…Did you clean the room?”

“The room looked messy after I came in. So I cleaned it up… Shouldn’t I have done that? Aren’t you angry?”

“It’s not like that. It’s just…”

I paused and looked around the room once again. No matter how you look at it, it was spotlessly clean. Originally, it was a cleaner law to see than doing it yourself.

“…Because it’s the first time someone else has cleaned my room.”

“It’s my first time cleaning someone else’s room, too. But that’s like everyone else, right?”

“Yeah…I guess so. Did you do this because you were grateful to me?”

“Of course I thought it was something I had to do. The only thing I can do is this.”

Even if I didn’t want to be conscious of it, I couldn’t help but compare. I couldn’t speak and fell silent.

“Lope?”

“Ah…Sorry. Would you like to have breakfast instead? Aren’t you hungry?”

“I don’t need to take care of it. I think I’ll be fine with this for the time being.”

Saya smiled broadly and held up the bread she ate yesterday. I tried to ignore the wet lip marks in one place.

“I see. Rather than that, I’m going to go to the academy. Like I said yesterday, I want you to stay here for a while.”

“At the academy? What’s going on?”

“To see if there’s a way out of the island. And… A few people to meet.”

“Are those your precious people?”

“I don’t know about that yet.”

I had no choice but to leave an ambiguous answer to that question. I haven’t even decided how to write this pattern yet. At the extreme, I was even thinking of using it for barter like the items I had been trading.

How will Saya react if she uses the miracle she gave her as a gift? Looking at her with concerned eyes, she still had a pure smile on her face.

“I’m sure you’ll find it, Lope. So you shouldn’t worry too much.”

“I’m not worried about that… But thank you, Saya. For saying that.”

“I feel guilty when I hear you say thank you.”

“Ah.Haha.”

I didn’t know how to react to this answer, so I just smiled awkwardly. I quickly picked up her backpack because I thought I would become more embarrassed if I continued to face Saya.

“Then I’ll go and buy it. As I said yesterday, please protect this place while I’m gone. Never open the door to anyone except me, okay?”

“Yes. I’ll remember your sound.”

“If you’re hungry, you can take it out and eat it. Starting from the outside as much as possible, okay? Then…”

“Can I ask when you’re coming? I just thought it would be nice to know.”

“I don’t know yet. It might be too late.”

“Is there anything else I should know? Something I shouldn’t do. Or…”

“I’ll tell you more when I think of that. Once I’m back.”

“Ah…Yes. Sorry. I understand.”

The mute girl who was reunited in the deep forest was more talkative than I thought. If we kept talking, it seemed like we would get lost and fall into a strange world like people possessed by fairies. At a time like this, it would be dangerous to indulge in illusions like Saya.

“I’ll be back soon, so I’ll ask you until then.”

“Yes.”

Saya, too, seemed to feel that her chatter might have been interrupted, so she kept her mouth shut and looked at me. In the meantime, her wriggling lips bothered her so much that she eventually had to turn away.

“Whoa…”

It was only after holding back my urges and stepping out of the door that I exhaled comfortably. Only then did the smells of the world I knew seep into me.

It felt like I was back to where I belonged. I calmed down and thought of what I had to do today.

First of all, I want to find out about the ship.

In the end, that was the most fundamental problem. How to get out of this island. The last person I remember mentioning him was the professor. He talked about contacting the Empire and getting supplies.

Fortunately, he was an easy-to-predict person. I’m sure he’ll be fucking at the front door again. I spit at that disgusting prediction and started moving.

“After…”

As I approached the front door, the smell changed, and I sighed naturally. I thought that maybe it was because I was getting ready for the scent of forget-me-not that I used to smell yesterday.

There, a familiar noise, like yesterday, began to be heard. It was an everyday scene that I did not get tired of.

Puck. Puck. Puck.

“Ah… Ah… Ugh…”

“Huh… Uhhhhh…”

“Ah… Uh…”

“Huh…Ahhh…”

Puck. Puck puck.

“Ah…”

“Huh…”

“…”

The sound of skin crashing. The groan of a man full of exhaustion. And the sound of a female student crying. All three of these things blended together and gently swayed in front of the front door. Nightmares for children, sexual desire for adolescent boys. And it was a nostalgic sound for rapists at the academy.

But I didn’t feel any of the three. I just wanted to finish everything quickly.

“Professor.”

“Haa…Ahh…”

When the name was called indirectly, the moans returned. I called out to him annoyedly as I got closer.

“Professor. Aren’t you working?”

“Ahhh…”

“Professor…”

“…”

Then, suddenly, a different smell permeated. A strange smell that was clearly different from the usual fishy smell of semen. It was as if the fishy smell of metal and the smell of blood were violently mixed together.

And that was a smell that shouldn’t come from here. I strained my shoulders as much as I approached the bush from yesterday. The closer we got, the more obvious the smells and sounds became.

Puck! Puck! Puck!

“Ugh! Uh…Ah…Uhh…”

“Hey.Hehe…”

Puck! Puck! Puck!

“Ah…Ahhhhh…”

“Ahhh…”

Baek!

When there was a rupture that could no longer be mistaken for the sound of flesh colliding, I saw the professor’s face revealed through the bushes. And the figure of a girl squatting beside him and shedding tears. Bright red bodily fluid splattered on both of their faces, but there was only one owner of the blood.

“Fuck.”

“Ah…?”

As I spit out curse words, the professor blankly turned around. And at that moment, a crowbar was thrust into it, and the rupture from earlier crushed the space.

Oops!

“Kyaaaaagh!”

“…”

A precise blow shriveled the professor’s humble head, and one of his eyeballs popped out. Then he rolled through the bushes and landed on the back of the screaming girl. The girl stumbled back at her mess, crushed her eyeballs with her hand, and let out another scream.

At the scene of the not even funny comedy, I turned my gaze to the owner of the crowbar. The man who killed the professor without shouting at her vigorously turned her head and looked at her in my direction.

“What are you looking at?”

“I had business with him.”

“Why the fuck. Do you have business with my girl too?”

Be my girl Are you talking about that girl? As I and her man both looked at me at the same time, the girl shook her body with a crying sound. I looked at him and replied bluntly.

“Well. No matter how much I think about it, I don’t think it’s your woman?”

“Such a bastard…”

“Hey! Lope!”

The moment the man spit out a curse, a familiar voice came from behind. She turned her head to see Hayter running hurriedly this way.

“Why did you come two days in a row? I’m dying of joy. Is there something wrong?”

“I had something to ask. But that’s how the person to answer has become.”

“What? Ah…It ended up like this. Be patient. When you’re done, go and cool off. Today is an important day.”

“…Okay.”

At Hayter’s words, the man grabbed the girl by the hair and dragged her toward the academy. The bloodstains of the professor drooped over the parched ground. Hayter shook his head as he patted the dying professor’s head with his foot.

“It must not have been a pretty sight. You smashed it really well.”

“At a time like this, I’m watching a love affair. What happened?”

“Hmm… It’s more a case of theft than a love affair. The professor stole his stuff on his own. What do you want to ask more than that?”

“That…”

Instead of answering right away, I glanced at Hater. Unlike usual, he was wearing thick clothes and hanging various weapons from his waist as if he was preparing for something. Besides, Hayter himself had rarely been down to the school gates, so it seemed certain that something was about to happen.

I think I said earlier that today is an important day. I guess I got the date wrong.

“…The professor said that before. He said he would contact the Imperial side and get supplies. I’m curious about that.”

“Oh, that.”

“I don’t think you guys are going to be lacking either. Aren’t you preparing?”

“Of course… I care.”

Seeing that he kept procrastinating on an answer, it seemed that he was rolling his head. It was never a good thing.

“Even so, there is someone on our side who can contact the Empire. We’re looking for a way through him.”

“Is there such a person? Who is that?”

“Well…Maybe it’s someone you know. Maybe not.”

“Don’t spin around and answer me. Who is that?”

“More than that, Lope. About the proposal I made yesterday.”

Sure enough, Hater slipped away. Then he asked in a soft voice.

“So you’ve decided what to do? Can I get an answer?”

“Do you need to decide already? In three days. You can think slowly.”

“I did. But plans have changed. I’ve decided to move the date up a bit.”

“You decided to move it forward? When?”

“Just tonight.”

“What?”

I frowned at the sudden story. But Hayter said with a slightly excited expression.

“Thinking about it, I thought there would be no reason to procrastinate. To be honest, waiting would only give me time to prepare for the other side. So I thought it would be better to just do it quickly.”

“But didn’t everyone know after three days?

“That doesn’t matter. It’s not like there’s a grandiose plan anyway. And I’ve been thinking about it. If there was a spy here, they would have told us that it would be three days later.

“Spy? What basis does that have?”

“No. But I can’t be sure there isn’t, right?”

“…”

It was an ignorant story with no logic whatsoever. There’s no reason or room for spies in such a small society. No matter how much I thought about it, it sounded like an adolescent student’s delusion.

Or, did you think I was spilling information over there?

He glanced at me just in case, but I didn’t think he was that stupid. It seemed that he just wanted to play war or something, drunk with sudden power. I didn’t want to put it to that rhythm, so I went back to the original story.

“I’ll have to think about it. Rather, where is the person you mentioned? Knowing that might help you in your decision.”

Haha… Lope. That’s all connected stories. Of course, that person will also participate in this raid. That’s why he’s already preparing on the spot. He’s a very important person, so you’ll only be able to meet him after work is over. “

“Is there any way I can see it now?”

“I’m also a person who has a hard time coming and going on my own. Well, if you really want to meet me, you can meet me at the site today. Isn’t that simpler?”

“…”

Shit.

Stupidity beyond the limit is sometimes wrapped in cleverness. Or vice versa. Anyway, now Heter was trying not to give me room for trouble. If it was intended, it was clever, and if it wasn’t, it was lucky.

Either way it was difficult. I wasn’t ready to meet her yet.

But as Hayter said, delaying doesn’t do any good. It was something I had to do anyway, even if there were no conditions attached. Even more so now that we have the legitimacy of the pattern.

At least that’s what I think so far.

I’m worried about Saya.

I shook my head. It seemed like today was going to be a tough day.

“…Okay. I’ll do it too. I have one condition instead.”

“I knew that. What are the conditions?”

Hayter smiled and nodded his head. It was as if a long-standing concern had been suffocated. But I had to hesitate a little before answering that face.

Damn, that must sound weird at this timing.

It was so harsh sometimes that I had to say it even though I knew it.

“Do you have any left over the gloves I gave you last time?”
