Chapter 215: The Warrior and the Ancient City Part 5

The Warrior and the Ancient City Part 5

The savings system skill… I have known it for as long as I can remember, and I have never understood how it works.

Until recently, its use and its effects were completely unknown.

That’s the reason I’m here now, but without that skill, I wonder if I would have had a slightly less stressful life. Well, I guess I have to thank you for allowing me to gain so much power.

I had always assumed it was an ability that manifested in me.

—Neutrals created the saving system as a last hope. The most powerful skill, which releases several times its value after accumulating a certain amount of experience. This allowed its owners to reach higher levels in a short time.

A scroll with rainbow colors is projected on the window.

Perhaps by using that, it would be possible to give the target a saving ability. But I don’t remember at all that my mother used something like that on me. 

Ios called me the son of destiny.

At the time I had no idea what he was talking about, but when I got here I realized that fate was tapping me on the shoulder all the time.

—Many people were happy with the completion of the savings system. However, there was one big problem, who should use it?

—What’s the problem with that, why didn’t they choose someone among them to take care of the problem?

—It is not an easy decision to make. It is a plan on which your future and the future of the species depends. The number of systems we could create was very small and making a bad decision was something that could not be afforded. 

The selection of people was difficult.

The essential conditions are that they have a long life span and have a sense of ownership in the survival of the species. He is the one who can lead the seed after the plan is carried out.

Apparently, there were several who met the conditions. However, none of them wanted to take such responsibility.

Neze did not give a clear reason, but it seemed that there was something bigger than them that they did not want to take on this role.

—A new plan was formulated after much anguish. And they came to the conclusion that the best choice would be artificial insemination. No one objected to it… Toru-sama, you are the result of it.

Wait… Does that mean my mother was part of this whole plan? Because if so, I… I don’t…

Mom, what does all this mean? Did you cheat on my father? 

—It’s Enough! Master, you must not believe these extravagant stories! The Master was born as the fruit of love between his parents.

—What bullshit are you saying, machine?! The Lord may be stupid, insensitive, unintelligent, but in spite of that, his parents had him because they loved each other very much.

Thanks to both of you…

By the way, Frau, I think you’re overdoing your words a bit.

Neze is saddened.

—I’m sorry. But this is an indisputable fact.

—Still telling the story.

—The executioner did not have to be wise. Rather, ignorance was said to be preferable. The final stage of the plan was the ‘executor must grow up in the lower world’, and be brought into the world by the ideal mother.

Neze touched the necklace around her neck. It is a wooden ornament that is not very well made.

—Kuon-sama was looking forward to meeting you. Regardless of the fate that awaited her, she dreamed of meeting a wonderful man and creating a happy family. I am sure that, in her own way, she loved Toru-sama in her own way.

Her words made me feel a little calmer.

Come to think of it, there was no need to cross the open sea just to have a baby.

Like me, she traveled all over the world, met many people, went on adventures, fell in love, married the person she thought was the right one to have her child.

Perhaps, now I am the result of facing my destiny in my mother’s way.

—And what is my objective? What is the role of the executor?

—…Do you have the key?

Key? What key?

I thought about it for a while and remembered something.

It’s my mother’s key, which Marianne gave me.

When I took out the key, Neze showed a hesitant gesture for a moment.

—Follow me.

Finally, after a long talk, Neze took us to another place in the city.

 

********************

 

It was a pure white space. There were no visible walls and the white floor was endless. There was only one stone slab in the place.

—This place is called “The restroom”. All your people sleep here, and look forward to the long-awaited day.

—Sleeping? Where?

—I’ll show you.

The room began to move as Neze touched the stone.

Across the vast floor ran cuts that did not exist before, and countless huge walls stretched upward at tremendous speed. When all was finished, a regular line of thick walls formed as high as the eye could see.

—What’s going on?

—What’s on the walls? I can’t make anything out. 

—Come here.

Neze called us over and showed us a piece of the wall. When we saw it, we were stunned.

Countless people were inside the wall. Covered by a transparent glass case, inside of which people were sleeping peacefully.

The surface of the display cases is marked with old letters, like names, with what looks like numbers constantly moving underneath.

—This is the last paradise left to them. Tired of living and unable to die, they had only sleep left, which is as good as eternity.

—That’s why there’s no sign of the ancient race anywhere.

—Yes. All the neutrals wanted to sleep here.

I witnessed it and gradually realized how bad immortality is.

So, you want me to save every one of them? The responsibility is too heavy and I feel like throwing up.

—How many are there?

—140 million, taking out the small numbers.

—And you want me to save them all?

—Yes. You are the one chosen for this task.

You must be joking. I’m just a warrior, born and raised in a small town.

I’m not prepared to save 140 million people.

—Well, you say the master has to save them all, but what exactly is he going to do?

—Yes, you’ve been very vague about it.

Neze swallows the words that are about to come out and still manages to open his mouth to answer.

What is the plan that I, with my saving ability, have to carry out?

—You have to kill every one of them.
