I Have Become the Hero's Rival - Chapter 95.1
VERY ROUGH VERSION, HARDLY EDITED, I USED MTL FOR THIS PART… I need to catch up with the story but I want to update asap so I’m putting this here first… gomenasai everyone!
“Are you going to say who you are now?”
As far as I know, Felix is the only person in the world who has never done anything bad. Until he began to hang out with the devil.
Of course, that’s the devil’s main job, and it’s already happened, so I won’t be angry anymore.
But don’t you think it’s a bit much for you to think about yourself?
Once upon a time, the devil had to admit to himself that he didn’t have a conscience.
He was said to be a ‘piece’ of the devil, and I thought he was in a very unstable state.
‘Is it about the devil’s time?’
Lerase gives them a push just when they need it.
I felt sorry for Larry, so I grabbed his hand and pulled it off my wrist. He put his hand to his chest.
“This is what I mean when I tell you to talk with your hand on your chest. Now, why did Felix’s want turn into something so dangerous? Please tell me, Larry.”
Larry’s lips were shaking, and a new word slipped out.
I thought it would be a happy voice, but it was a voice of deep regret.
I, too, struggled with that feeling, and it was easier for me to understand because I could hardly breathe.
No beliefs, no conscience, no morals, nothing. I must say, I was a little taken aback. ‘So what? You did it.’ I asked you because I knew you’d answer.
“Do you think you’ll be sorry?”
To know how to feel regret, he has to be able to realize and feel bad about his mistakes. Whether or not to apologize is a different question.
If you say that the devil’s nature can’t change, then why in the hell does the devil do such a regretful thing? Even the three brothers and sisters never had those regrets.
Maybe it was because it was a feeling of love-related regret.
Then Larry put his hand on his heart, slowly closed his blue eyes, and spoke in a strange voice.
“It… it seems like it’s going to break. It’s like being burned in hell—”
His voice stopped in the middle because he couldn’t speak well.
“People often call it jealousy.”
“Jealousy? Is this due to envy? I want to steal you and run away so my soul will be sated.”
“If you do that, I’ll tell you what pain is worse than death.”
I didn’t have a choice but to act like I knew everything.
After a quick grin, I took out something from my pocket watch to see what time it was. At the same time, Larry looked down and bit his lip with worry on his face.
It will soon be time to meet Felix.
It was hard when this demon’s eyes suddenly turned to envy, he went crazy, and he threw a fit. So instead of being mean, I chose to explain it in a nice way.
I can see why Larry would feel bad about it, at least.
“Larry, it’s time for us to own up to what we’ve done.”
I licked my lips and said it as plainly as I could, as if I were talking to a child.
“I was afraid, so I left Felix. In the end, he made it possible for more bad things to happen. I have to take the pain that Felix gives me, no matter how much it hurts. I will hug it all.”
“Why are you—”
“Because I care about him.”
