Anyway, here’s the chapter, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
Having confirmed that Finnegan had regained consciousness, Cody left the room with Harold, while feeling useless and ashamed. He was waiting for the atmosphere to be a little less intense before explaining everything to Finnegan and his wife.
After returning to the living room, he sat down on a chair and let out a long sigh.
Seeing him like this, Harold spoke to him in his usual tone, with no regard for his state of mind.
“Ah well… To be honest, I wanted get this done without bringing any trouble your way, and yet here we are…”
“You can only blame yourself for being a weakling.”
“That I am. Sorry… and thank you. Sincerely.”
Cody bowed deeply. Not only had he ended up making Harold help Finegan, but he had even made him use the sword that drained his life. It was because he knew about this aspect of the sword that Cody wanted to handle the situation with his own hands. He had promised himself that he would not depend on Harold this time.
(In the end, I still left everything to him. I don’t know if I should say I’m shameless or just the worst…)
Cody was not the type to get preachy or says things like ‘I’m the adult here’. Even so, there was still a reasonable limit to how much he could accept. That was why he had been so adamant on stopping Harold from intervening.
However, when that sword dropped to the ground and Harold picked it back up to save Finnegan himself, Cody had surrendered.
He had surrendered to Harold’s strength and kindness. But more than anything, he had surrendered to his own weakness.
“I don’t want your meaningless gratitude. Well, if you do feel like you owe me, then I guess I’ll just have to work you to the bone from now on.”
“Hahahaha… Please go easy on me.”
‘Alright, he wins, I admit defeat’ Thought Cody. This was not a simple question of being physically stronger or weaker.
Harold had probably used words of encouragement because he had guessed that Cody was sincerely beating himself over what had happened this time.
It was almost a wonder who was older than who here.
Harold always had a mature personality since the day Cody first met him, but now that he was a young man, he exuded a kind of special presence and charisma. He was a hero of Vincent’s caliber, or perhaps even greater.
‘Tough break for common sense, this guy’s just something else’Sighed Cody in his mind.
“Well, anyway, we should get some rest.”
It was already very late at night.
Looking for an inn at this time of the day was not a realistic option. Besides, in the first place, it would be ridiculous to arbitrarily leave the house now given that they had to explain everything to Finnegan and his wife once the sun would rise.
“You took care of everything here so you can have the sofa. I can sleep on this chair or on the floor, I don’t mind.”
Cody stretched himself and yawned. Rather than saying he felt sleepy, it was more accurate to say he was worn out.
Due to his profession, he was confident in the strength of both his mind and body, but it seemed like the mere act of grabbing that sword had drained him of every bit of his energy. Thinking that this might be what it felt like to have one’s life essence drained, Cody felt shivers down his spine.
And when he thought of Harold, who could casually wield such a weapon with a calm expression on his face, he felt kind of afraid. He did not understand how Harold could do this. ‘If you keep letting it drain your life, the only thing waiting ahead of you will be certain death. Aren’t you scared?’
Of course, even Cody would never say something so insensitive out loud.
“Oh wait, you’re not one of those guys who absolutely can’t sleep on a sofa, right? Well, you do come from noble birth.”
Though he was the one saying it, it was hard for Cody to believe that Harold was that delicate. He seemed like the type who could fall asleep in the middle of a pitch-black forest while standing up.
‘…Hold on, that’s not it. Why is he being so silent? Is he ignoring me? Man, that hurts.’ Thinking so, Cody turned towards Harold’s direction, only to find him very intensely staring at a letter. It was unclear where he had gotten it from.
Seeing him in such an unusual state, Cody hesitated to call out to him.
But while he was stuck hesitating, Harold roughly put the letter in his pocket and turned around.
“Something urgent came up. I’m leaving.”
“You’re leaving now?”
“I’ll let you do the explaining to those two. But don’t say anything unnecessary, you hear me?”
“I guess that’s fine, but don’t you want to say anything to them?”
“…From now on, you’re free to live as you will. Tell them that.”
The second he said that, Harold immediately rushed out of the house, not giving Cody any time to even try to stop him.
Left in the living room by himself, Cody could only look on in a daze.
He did not know exactly why Harold had left, but he knew he was a busy man; it couldn’t be helped if he had some urgent business to take care of.
Besides, Cody did not mind explaining everything to the couple himself. However, the problem was that there was no one left to receive their gratitude for saving Finnegan.
While he was busy worrying about what he was supposed to do, someone suddenly called out to him from behind the chair he was sitting on.
【”Oh hey, little Sarah. I’m sorry, I guess I woke you up.”】
Standing there in her pajamas was Finnegan’s daughter, Sarah.
It seemed like Cody had been making a little too much noise. He wondered if he should explain the situation to her right away seeing as she was already awake, but Sarah started speaking before he could say anything to her.
【”You’ve done well. However, you have another role to play now.”】
Something was odd. It was not just her way of speaking, nor was it her gaze that was locked right on him yet felt like it was peering into an empty void.
Something was amiss. It was like a fundamental part of her was out of place.
However, Cody did not know what it was. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t think of any answer, it was as if his brain was refusing to think.
Sarah slowly walked closer to him, one step at a time. Her behavior was obviously not normal, but as she stared through him with her sky blue eyes, Cody found himself unable to move.
(Sky-blue…? No, the color of her eyes is supposed to be…)
Before Cody could fully remember, something blocked his vision. The small palms of Sarah’s hands covered his eyes.
He could tell from the soft touch of her hands on his forehead that his eyes were being covered. Even so, his body remained petrified.
【”What are you doing to…”】
Before he could finish his question, everything in his field of vision turned black.
【”You’ll make for another fine trial for him.”】
The voice that reached his ears right before he lost consciousness was fuzzy. It was stuck somewhere between Sarah’s regular voice and the voice of an adult man.

Thank you for this. Gratitude in multitude
More Harold and Erika?! Yeah!!!
Gin Hindew 110
So, is she the entity that got him into that world or is she Justus’ lover?
Oh shoot that was the professor ?
Cody, your besties just got up from a long coma and now you’re flirting with his loli daughter? What kind of human are you?
Thanks for the chapter
Thank you for the chapter! Our boy just can’t catch a break.
Woo! Let’s give the author some love
Thanks for the chapter. Hypnotists are always a pain in every bone of the body
I hope the content of letter not about Erica in a danger..
Anyway, thanks for the chap as always!
Honestly if we talk about way of supporting Izumi-sensei, we can buy this novel on Amazon for ¥1,296. But I’m not quite sure if there’s another way of doing it. (Well, maybe trying to spread the novel to communities & publicize it is also another way of supporting Izumi-sensei)
Either way, good luck getting a response from him!
I don’t know man, my father published a book once and he’s not really getting any revenu on int ’cause there is like a cap with editors and the like. Plus I think a simple paypal/patreon or whatever link will work much better.
How tf did Justus even have control on this little girl in a remote area?
Well, it’s not their actual daughter so he probably kidnapped her to control her or something and then sent her there.
Frelling evil genius messing around with people’s minds.
But Erica in next part so got that to look forward to 👍
Thanks for the chapter
Wonder if that note is about Erica’s snap. Author probably set up Erica with this moment in mind. What is a Yamato Nadeshiko’s logical end? She pop, that’s what. At best, she just turned into an yandere. At worst, Justus get his new semi-final boss that just as hard.
Thanks for the 1st part~
wowow thx boy
I’ve been waiting! Thank you!
Huh… Cody still sane till morning that day it is?
Thanks for chapter as always defiring 🙂
Thanks for the chapter, eugh, yet another person Harolds going to save then have to babysit huh? Damnit Justus, can’t you give our man a single friggin break?! And come on Cody, he just helped you out why are you already causing problems for him?
Thank you for the chapter! Please don’t feel bad about the cut off, it’s for a good cause! Here’s hoping we hear something from the author!
Will we be able to get part 2 soon? or do we have to wait a little bit longer?
later today… or tomorrow, depending on you where you live
My Death Flags Show No Sign Of Ending – Chapter 108 (part 2) – Defiring Translations
[…] And here’s the second part of chapter 108! If you missed it, you can read part 1 here. […]
So pumped for another Erica chapter. Last one was so good, I’ve been practically drooling waiting for the follow-up to that. Thanks for the upload!
YAY!!! Another chapter, it’s been a LONG time since the last one came out, I can now see what the others have to deal with.
I’m thinking of the creepy yandere jii-san RN, or someone like GOD, if it is god, then why? If it is the Justus, then how? Still, thanks for the Chapter Defiring-San, I haven’t caught up exactly yet since I’ve been dealing with all of my Manga, YouTube and other LN’s I’ve been reading, now then, ONTO THE NEXT CHAPTER!!!
YAY!!! ERICA!!! But NOOO!!! ERICA!!! She was once a Megadere, now, she is the legendary dere in the Weeb World, the Yandere.
This also can’t be counted as a spoiler since it’s gone this far, if you just skipped the chapters where Erica was showing here Yandere colours and you looked at the comments, all I can say are these 2 things…
GO READ THE REST OF IT, EVEN IF IT’S LONG…
…AND DON’T LOOK AT THE COMMENTS IF YOU DON’T WANNA GET SPOILED!!! That’s all =P
