Chapter 5-2

Previous Page

There was a knock on the door of the empty classroom.

“Please come in.”

“………”

The person opened the door in silence and walked into the middle of the room. It was a girl with golden hair, Alice.

Waiting inside was the homeroom teacher of Year 2, Class A –– Hariya Gen-sensei.

“You wanted to have a conversation with me?”

“Yes.”

“It’s surprising to have you rely on me.”

“…Depending on the time and situation, right?”

“It would be good if I can be helpful.”

They were in classroom 2804. It was a disused classroom on the 28th floor that wasn’t closed.

6:00PM––

It was already after school and the sun was setting in the west.

The sound of the restoration work on classroom 2808 which had been destroyed by Alice and Ishounuma could be heard in the a distance.

Unlike Alice’s apartment, it wasn’t designed so that whole rooms could be completely replaced. The damaged pillar was being repaired and the walls and ceiling were being rebuilt.

Alice gazed outside the window.

“…Recently my pieces have been misunderstanding things.”

“Your pieces?”

“…I’m talking about Sakurazaka Shirley. She dared to state her opinion to me, the King, and she behaves selfishly… in addition, she destroyed my room. ”

“That’s terrible.”

“…She deserves to die.”

“Do you want me to mediate between the two of you?”

“…I need to make it known. That I’m the King.”

“You should calm down a little.”

“…If you don’t approve, then this will be the end of the conversation.”

Hariya was lost in thought for a while.

Alice gazed out of the window expressionlessly.

“Can I listen to a more concrete story a little longer?”

“…Shirley’s Star Blast lacks elegance, is wild and you could even say that it is like desecration… I can’t accept the possibility that it might reach me, the King.”

“Well. Sakurazaka’s type specializes in combat and in addition she’s Level 7. I doubt you can find anyone like her throughout the world, let alone Canaan.”

“…That may be so, but even if we fight each other, I’ll win. However, I’m the King so any kind of fight must be overwhelming with beauty and grace.”

“Really?”

Hariya shrugged.

He was amazed that Alice revealed her feelings but he didn’t challenge her.

“…I’ll allow you to help me.”

“Haha, no, my Dialect isn’t particularly battle oriented. At most, it could be used in place of a summer electric fan.”

“…You’re under Level 5. I’m not expecting you to have war potential. But, I heard that you had something interesting.”

Hariya’s faced convulsed at Alice’s words.

“!?”

“…Secrets are meaningless before the King.”

“Wh-what… are you…”

He said in a wrung out voice.

Alice didn’t drop her aloof manner.

“…I’m saying that in order to overpower Shirley, I need to use the thing that you have.”

“No, that’s…”

“In this situation, shouldn’t you give me it’s name?”

Hariya’s face bewilderingly cycled through twitching, being lost in thought, scowling, and seeming like he was about to cry.

How long would he be worried about it?

A crooked smile floated onto his face.

“Fu, fufufu… gufufufufu…”

Hariya waved his left hand a window opened.

He operated it at a high speed.

A high-pitched sound spread out reaching the depths of her ears.

“…What is that?”

“I’m just making sure.”

“…Is it the image and voice recording jamming?”

“Yes. And this is what you wanted.”

Hariya extended his left hand. On his Ring Gear was the design of an angel’s wing attached to an apple.

Alice also produced her left hand.

It was like the arm of a white doll. A rose relief was engraved into the silver bracelet.

Hariya’s finger crawled along the surface of her white skin.

“…Is this action necessary?”

“Ah, no, it’s fine… there should be collateral if I’m collaborating with you.”

“…If you’re requesting a reward from the king, the servant needs to achieve results first.”

“Guh.”

“…Do you wish to die?”

“Haha, I understand. But, after I hand it over to you…”

Alice stared at him with cold eyes.

Hariya wiped the sweat off his face with his right hand and his lips twisted.

“It is a type of application that will delete itself after being used once. This is my original. You won’t be able to obtain it again if you kill me. You wanted to win against Sakurazaka, right? After that, will it be necessary to have that strong power. Wouldn’t you ignore me?”

“…That is for me to decide.”

Hariya touched the Ring Gear, interpreting Alice’s word as affirmation.

There was a tiny electric sound.

“Kukuku… please accept it. With that, you’ll arrive at the truth of the world, Fruit of Wisdom.”

The application was copied.

And right after that––

The specially made trap that was built in five hours by the programmer group that was the pride of Breaker activated.

The application was restricted to being frozen so that it wouldn’t be able to delete itself, and the system that was analyzing it at the same time judged it to be illegal.

The freeze said “Success” and the verdict was “Illegal.”

A conversation window opened.

Midorikawa-sensei materialized in it and she drew closer to Hariya.

“Yooou worthless teacher!”

“Wha!? Midorikawa!?”

“Breaker Help Cat get innnnn––––!!”

The classroom door was kicked down at the same time the shout in the window.

As usual, Shirley barged in.

“Teyaaa––!!”

And following that, Masaki ran after her. This was Masaki’s first job as a member of Breaker.

“Hariya-sensei, you’re being taken in on the charge of manufacturing and distributing APPD. This is being done based on the laws of Breaker, if you have an objection then submit a report within 90 days. Furthermore, if you show resistance, it is likely that defensive measures will be taken according to the Peace Preservation Act.”

Masaki’s Dialect didn’t have any combat potential. So he wanted to be useful in situations other than that, so to start with, he memorized the rules. Shirley put her hands on her hips and stuck out her chest.

“Harii-sensei! I misjudged you! The API for the students… handing over stuff that could make them murderers and put them to sleep! Anyway, I’ll never allow it!!”

“…If you resist, you will die.”

This was the speech of Alice & Shirley, Help Cat.

However, their opponent couldn’t be dealt with by ordinary means.

By Hariya’s facial expression, he still had some moves left.

“Kukuku… what’s the matter? What are you charging me for? Well, if you’re going to restrain me, you won’t be able to get it will you… however, if you’re wrong you won’t get away with some running as your punishment, you’d better be prepared for that.”

Of course, the proof had already disappeared from that Ring Gear.

Midorikawa-sensei ground her teeth from the middle of the window.

“Tch… I just finished checking the materials used by the class and investigating the PCs in the lab. The data and development tools are probably hidden somewhere.”

Alice lifted her left arm. She pointed at the Ring Gear.

“…If you want evidence, it’s right here.”

“Yeah! That’s right! Harii-sensei passed it on to her so we have it!”

“Kukuku… what are you talking about? What did I hand over to whom?”

“…Is it the sound and video recording jamming application?”

“That’s no good at all, what do you lot think you’re saying? Can you stopping making false accusations! Even for Breaker, isn’t that being too discourteous!? If you’re going to say that I’m doing something illegal, show me the evidence!! The evidence!!!!”

Masaki asked.

“In other words, if there’s evidence, you’ll admit to everything that you’ve done?”

“Ah, of course! If the evidence has been recorded by your Ring Gear!”

“Alright.”

Alice exchanged looks with the others and took out a device about the size of the pen from her dress pocket.

She pushed the switch.

A high-pitched and quiet noise flowed from it––

“…What is that?”

“I’m just making sure.”

“…Is it the image and voice recording jamming?”

“Yes. And this is what you wanted.”

“…Is this action necessary?”

“Ah, no, it’s fine… there should be collateral if I’m collaborating with you.”

“…If you’re requesting a reward from the king, the servant needs to achieve results first.”

“Guh.”

“…Do you wish to die?”

“Haha, I understand. But, after I hand it over to you…”

“It is a type of application that will delete itself after being used once. This is my original. You won’t be able to obtain it again if you kill me. You wanted to win against Sakurazaka, right? After that, will it be necessary to have that strong power. Wouldn’t you ignore me?”

“…That is for me to decide.”

“Kukuku… please accept it. With that, you’ll arrive at the truth of the world, Fruit of Wisdom.”

Hariya’s face paled.

His face started convulsing and his fingertip shaking.

Sweat was spouting down his face.

“Wh…at…?”

“…You are too foolish.”

Alice’s word said everything but Masaki supplemented it.

“There isn’t a anything within the degrees of what a teacher can think of that a student can’t think of too. If the recording is being jammed in the same way over and over again, a counter measure needs to be found. The solution was simple; carry a recording device other than the Ring Gear… a teacher wouldn’t be on the lookout for that.”

“Ah, guh… uuuh…”

His groans were like the moans of an animal.

And then he started muttering to himself.

Shirley who had been standing with her hands on her hips all that time stepped forward.

“I don’t completely get it but with that, you’re arrested!”

Hariya looked up.

“…These… damn… brats.”

“Harii-sensei?”

He waved his left arm.

A windowed opened up and displayed the word “Cipher”.

After that, an image that he recognized appeared.

An apple with angel wings––

Masaki shouted.

“Don’t let him press it! Shirley!!”

“Okay!”

Shirley ran up to him.

Hariya snorted.

“As I thought, you’re foolish Sakurazaka-kun. You should have shot your Dialect at me. You missed your only chance of victory.”

Shirley almost reached him before she hit an invisible wall.

Hariya didn’t move an inch yet she was blown away.

Her back struck the wall of the classroom.

“Ginyaa!?”

“Shirley!?”

Masaki ran up to her. He remembered something happening like this in Alice’s room.

In the same way as then, she got up immediately and put herself on guard.

“I’m fine!”

“That’s, that’s good.”

“…You’re ridiculously sturdy.”

Alice let out a sigh of relief while she said that.

Hariya’s shoulders shook as he sneered at them.

“Did you forget that I’m a Level 5 Globalizer? Of course, you guys are Level 7. No matter what situation you’re in, you won’t consider anyone else a threat. With this I will leave behind the days where that arrogance irritated me.”

His right hand fell onto the window.

He ate the apple with angel wings.

Furthermore, several more windows opened up around it. They all became the Fruit of Wisdom.

“Fuhahahahahaha! My brain has finally arrived at the truth of the world!”

With only his right hand sweeping across, he ate all of the apples.

The APPD still hadn’t been analyzed yet. Masaki and the others didn’t know what kind of effect using it several times would exert.

If that action was repeatedly powering up his Dialect, the result would be terrible. Masaki shuddered.

Thinking along the same lines, Midorikawa-sensei raised her voice from within the window.

“Withdraw! Help Cat withdraw!”

“…I refuse.”

Alice answered in a flat tone.

Could she be lacking the thing called a sense of fear?

“Don’t say something stupid! His battle potential isn’t clear so don’t fight him!”

“…I can’t run away… because of something like that.”

“I won’t let you get away with such unreasonable things! Even if it’s Breaker!”

FGnAS01 P225

“…That’s not it.”

“What!?”

“…The reason why I’ll fight… is because I, Alice Clockheart, am the King of the World.”

After she said that, Alice closed the window with Midorikawa-sensei in it.

She threw a glance at the classroom wall.

“…Masaki-kun, you had better escape to a safe place.”

“Of course, I’ll refuse. I can’t leave my partner and childhood friend behind when I know they’re in danger.”

“…Right.”

In the worst case, Masaki was thinking that the both of them could escape to his Dialect.

Masaki was planning on staying in case there was anything he could do, even though his Dialect was the type that couldn’t be used at moment’s notice when being attacked by an opponent.

“…Shirley, are you by any chance sleeping?”

“I’m awake!”

“…Use your full power.”

“Okay, now you can leave it to me!”

Shirley’s right hand started to shine brightly.

“Kukuku… I who have finally arrived at the truth… being a Level 7 won’t be enough for you to win!!”

Hariya waved his right hand and created a shockwave.

Normally, they would likely have been thrown and smashed into the wall.

Alice took out playing cards from her pocket and threw them into the air.

That was the beginning of Wonder Carnival.

A giant sea turtle appeared and became a shield. But it smashed through the walls and windows.

Shirley swung her fist.

“Toryaaa!! Staaaaaaar Blaaaaaaast!!”

A flash of light exploded through the area.

In retaliation, Hariya once again swept his right hand across.

A collision of Dialects occurred.

The flash––

Pierced through everything.

It passed by Hariya, travelled between the groups of buildings and soared into the sky.

“What the!?”

His expression stiffened.

Shirley was running through the flash.

“Ryaraaaa––––!!”

“No… way… why!? I’ve obtained a power equal to God!”

Shirley threw her right fist.

“If that’s the case! Then my fist can hit even God––––!!”

Hariya’s face was distorted.

He was blown away.

Into the wall.

Despite that, Hariya’s body shifted towards the window.

“Gu… grrrr… you! Monsteer!!”

He allowed his body to fall from the window, outside of the school building.

This was the 28th floor. If he fell, it wouldn’t matter how much his power was strengthened by the APPD.

But, Hariya’s body was floating in the air.

Each person only had one type of Dialect; an exception to that rule hadn’t ever been discovered. Even if it seemed to have multiple effects, it was only the application of one effect.

Perhaps, he was using the ability to make shockwaves in order to float.

Hariya was about to escape by flying through the air.

Shirley looked back.

“Alice!”

“…I’m on my way.”
