Chapter 108 (part 2)

(Harold’s POV)

Harold was running out of breath. This was proof that he was running with all his power.

Even so, he kept going without any breaks.

The sun was already high in the sky. Harold was cynically thinking that this clear blue sky was here to make fun of him for going through one unexpected predicament after another, with nothing ever going smoothly for him.

He could not help his thoughts from going to such a negative place given the emergency of the situation he was being faced with.

(Why the hell did they already step into Harrison’s mansion?!)

There certainly was supposed to be an event where Liner fought in Harrison’s mansion in order to get back his sword. But through Elu and Frieri, Harold knew how things had been progressing on Liner’s side, and he knew there were supposed to be 2 or 3 more events before this one. But these events had been skipped to make way for this sudden progress of the story.

Back when he read the emergency contact letter that had been suddenly delivered to Finnegan’s house, Harold had been stuck in disbelief.

Harold hadn’t told Elu about the original story in detail as he thought it would seem odd and would raise questions. All he had told him was basically to just tail and observe Liner and the others without being noticed, and to contact him him if they did anything that stood out. He had also told him about a few key events, pretending they were predictions of the future. When any of those events took place, Elu had to notify Harold immediately and in priority over anything else.

That was why Elu had sent an emergency contact letter to notify him, but that’s all it was, a notification. The content of the letter was not sufficient for Harold to make a guess as to how the situation had progressed so fast. The easiest way for him to know would be to hear it directly from Elu, but Harold unfortunately did not have time for even that.

【”This should be it…!”】

After running faster than a horse for hours without stopping for a second, the building he was looking for finally came in sight.

He was currently at one of the medium sized towns scattered around the royal capital. In the middle of that town, there was a mansion the size of a small castle. If the event was progressing like it did in the original work, then the fight was supposed to start around the terrace on the top floor of this mansion.

That being the case, Harold kicked the brick wall of a house to climb on top of it, and then ran from roof to roof at full speed, straight to Harrison’s mansion. There was quite a distance between some of the houses because of the roads that separated them here and there, but jumping over that much space was nothing for Harold.
Though he was probably being an annoyance to the people who lived in the town, he still maintained his maximum speed as he came closer to the mansion.

In reality, Harold should have had the time to sneak into the mansion at his own pace.
He had come up with a theory when he was staying in Vincent’s hospital room. He thought that if his theory was correct, then there was a chance he’d be able to bring back Ventos and Lilum’s ego, and their emotions with it. It was then that Cody proposed to him to go treat a man who had what seemed to be almost the same symptoms as those two.

Harold had figured that if this went well, then he might be able to save Ventos and Lilium. At the time, he believed that he still had some time on his hands despite the progress of the events on Liner’s side. That was why he had granted Cody’s request.

And the result ended up being a great success. Thanks to this, the likelihood of him being able to save Lilium and Ventos had increased. But just when he had been having those positive thoughts, life had thrown this unexpected situation his way.


Harold reflexively tossed out an insult.

If the information written on the letter was true, then the fight in the mansion had probably already started by now. Harold did not believe for a second that Liner and the others would be defeated, but Ventos and Lilium were another story.

In the game, after being defeated in combat, Lilium and Ventos had turned against Harrison, but nothing was said about what happened to them afterwards. It was believed that they had regained their emotions and ego, but maybe Harrison had killed either one of them from anger after his defeat. In the first place, they might have turned against Harrison simply because they had been ordered to somehow kill him by Justus, and not because they had been freed from his control.

If that was the case, then they would be doomed unless Harold could somehow manage to save them.

(Do I have to be responsible for someone else’s life again…?!)

Thinking back to the past, back when he had first arrived, he had somehow managed to avoid Carla’s death while he was still trying to understand the absurdity of possessing the body of a game’s character. Smiliarily, in the Bertis forest, he couldn’t abandon Sid and the others and he even ended up looking after the Sumeragi family’s private army. Then, not that long ago, he barely managed to somehow capture the brainwashed Vincent while keeping him alive. And though the situation was little bit different, Finnegan might also have died soon if Harold had not intervened.

But every time he had to lift the weight of another’s life like so, he was swarmed by feelings of anxiousness and fear, and just wanted to tell the world “Give me a break already”. However, this world still kept putting the lives of others on his shoulders, one after the other, as if to ridicule him.

Perhaps this just went to show just how much the world hated the existence called “Harold Stokes”.

However, it did not matter if things became difficult, it did not matter if he was the most hated man in the world, and it did not matter if causality and destiny itself tried to enforce the death of ‘Harold Stokes’; his will to survive would not be shaken. He was going to avoid all his death flags to the end, and then tell the world to ‘suck it’.

But before he could hurl those words at the world, there were some things that had to be done ――!


A metallic sound echoed all around. Harold caught the swords of the two young women, blocking the two heavy impacts that did not seem like they could come from their slender arms. He had arrived at an extremely critical time.


Erica was staring straight at Harold. He had literally jumped up to the top of a four-story building to interrupt the fight.

Harold felt like the expression in Erica’s eyes looked completely lifeless, but his priority at the moment was to deal with Lilium. While still holding the blade of Lilium’s scimitar, he pulled her by the arm and struck the pit of her stomach with the handle of his sword.

The blow was violent but did not deal any damage to her. However, because she used too much magic before Harold came here, Lilium collapsed on the spot.
Harold caught her delicate body and placed her on one of the benches that had not been covered in ice.

Next, he smiliarily thrust his sword at Ventos, who immediately lost consciousness like his sister. Harold then destroyed the ice restraining him and carried him to another bench.

Harold was relieved, at least he still had a chance to save them.

Through the whole process, the only person who said anything Harrison, who was wailing pitifully while kneeling on all fours. He was unable to stand because his feet were encased in ice. As for Liner and the others, they only stared bewilderedly at the scene that was happening in front of them. For now, Harrison was being too noisy, so Harold broke his ice restraints and dug his fist in his abdomen to force him into silence.

Then, he finally turned towards Liner and the others.

Harold could not tell what kind of emotions were in their eyes as they gazed at him. Were they simply surprised? Or were they confused by his sudden intrusion? Either way, the words Harold would say next were going to be very important. If he handled this poorly, his very own survival could be at stake.

Once he firmly established that thought in his mind, Harold decided to speak.

―― No. He had no choice but to speak.

【”If you bastards take a single step from here, believe me when I say I’m going to slice you up. But make no mistake, I’m dying to see you try.”】

These words were from one of the three battle events that opposed Harold and Liner’s party in the original story.

This was the line Harold had used at the start of their first memorable fight.

Translator’s note: And now, we wait I suppose. In the meantime, please consider reading the novel I’ve been translating lately, Population Control.

I think you guys will really like it since it sort of follows the same themes, plus it’s already completed and I’ve been working on it in close communication with the author.

    So he still forces the battle to happen? What the point ? To ascertain their capabilities before facing Justus?
    And first thing you should do is to check on Erica, Harold !
    Also, damn you, Defiring, Erica does appear, yes, but that’s only one line!

    1. zzz

      He’s telling them not to disturb him while he’s saving them, but can’t deviate from Harold’s antagonistic way of speaking.

      1. Syafie

        Didn’t it actually the time when he forced to say character line?? Like when he at jail with justus. So not like there are any intention or meaning behind his word.

    2. Anonymous

      Well didn’t it says that he had no choice but to speak?? Didn’t that mean it one of the phenomenon that he forced to speak the character line so not like he looking for fight. All he did actually is stop them from kill each other to save those 2 sibling.

  2. Gigz

    I don’t like where this is heading… please don’t screw up the relationships, please 🙁

    Erica x Harold forever

    Well, hope you success in contacting the Author.

    Really like this story, and find it such a waste how repetitive wordwalls are praised while this gets relegated to the side.

  5. Yori

    Thank you for the chapter! It’s been so long my first thought this entire chapter was… whose Harrison again? That cliffhanger though!

  6. Drakensji

    Thx for the chapter!
    They come out so slow that i forgot that Erica was having her destruction mode moment.

    Was he forced to say those words again or is he trying to set something up ?

  7. Anjoh

    Oh man, with that ending waiting for 109 is going to be torture. Do you have an approximate time frame for when that will release?

    1. defiring

      Sorry but I don’t have a clue, but author usually posts a chapter in September, so we’ll probably get one

  8. ai

    This is highly underated. I don’t speak Japanese, but I followed the author as a show of support. Wish he’d publish more though. Readers are a ravenous bunch.

  10. TheSloppyReader

    Thanks for translating this wonderful series!! I just ended binge reading all the chapters, now I have to wait for more :(.

    I really hope Erica and Harold’s relationship to develop next chapter or at least for Erica to cheer up, seeing her so upset makes me feel relly bad.

  11. ironyisnotdead

    Harold, betrayed by his mouth again.

    If you could include link to author’s posts with your translations, we readers could send thank you messages to show our support to encourage his writing . Now thatnow he’s broken through his writer’s block we can’t risk it’s return. As we are greedy for more of the story. 😉

    Thanks for your efforts in translating.

  12. Meihua

    Oh shoot! Harold vs Liner and his party? Ahhh I thought we’d be able to avoid all conflicts!! RIP
    Thanks for the chapter!

  13. CandiedSkull

    Sure he’s just trying to avoid death flags, it’s not as if he’s a kind person that goes out of his way helping people continuously whether it’s necessary or not

  14. RKADE 14

    A Cliffhanger, after so long, *Inhales*, a Cliffhanger, *Sighs*.

    I was also hoping for some development, damn, either way, thanks for the chapter Defiring-San. Judging how fast Harold is moving, I doubt my eyes would even be able to see his after-image, it’s also amazing how fast he comes in and just deals with everything, they lost in less then 10 seconds from what I can tell, no, not even 5, roughly 3 seconds is how fast he kicked their butts.

    (About a 15 seconds later) Just finished re-reading a part I was confused about, and now, I understand.

    Also, how far away was that fort from where Harold was, how many KM/H did he just run and how many KM’s did he just run? Those are some STONK legs.

    I wonder when the next one will come out? I can’t wait =)

  15. Whitemim

    MYGHADDDD!! Translator-sama when will be your update?? Im dyung to know morrrrr!!! Pls be safe and healthy!! And pls the ship about erica and harold arose!!!

    1. Sean

      I think, judging by his tweets, the autor is more concerned now about baseball, we need to hold up and wait more…

  16. Yaman Kurt

    ARGH! This cannot just stop there! And with how much time it takes between updates it will be forever until we get another chapter!

  17. BakaGrappler

    So I’m not on any social media by choice. Is there any way for me to sent my encouragements t the author without using twitter, facebook, or anything like that?

  18. Acriloth

    Why does Erica have dead eyes? Been a long time since I read this, can someone point me to the right chapter for clarifications.

  19. UnderAlpha

    Wait Ventos and lilium are siblings?
    I thought Ventos only have his grandparents in his family while lilium has parents and a brother

  20. Dicey

    Ok this is my prediction- the original plotline of Harold fighting against Liner’s party will play out and he will die i.e. Harold. This will be a chance for Kazuki to fully get rid of his alternate personality. Just a guess tho
