For a long time, I have been seeking.
Someone who will defeat the Demon King...
I believed it to be my duty as a royal who knows of the Demon King's resurrection.
According to the legend, it goes like this.
The legend speaks of the existence of a Hero of Light. This Hero of Light was destined to vanquish the Demon King.
It was said that the Hero of Light would awaken when he is around 16 years old and would go on to bring peace to the world.
Indeed, entering the Academy for nobles happens at the age of sixteen.
Besides, I had a strange feeling.
I felt like I was destined to meet the Hero of Light at this aristocratic school.
And so, it occurred during the entrance ceremony.
“Erd Schmarken, level 9999...!??!?!”
I couldn't believe my ears and eyes.
Could things really be so convenient, is that possible?
Level 9999... That's the power that might even be able to defeat the Demon King.
Someone like that, Is it really possible to encounter all of a sudden in this way?
I can't help but feel that this is fate.
And to my surprise, he was in the same class as me.
However, there was something puzzling.
Was he truly level 9999? Could such a thing be possible?
I wanted to verify his power. That's what I had been thinking.
Just then, conveniently, I spotted Mireille-san talking to him.
It seems that Mireille had the same thoughts as me.
Apparently, Mireille-san also harboured doubts about Erd-san being level 9999.
Rather, it was almost like a baseless accusation...?
But this is a good opportunity. Let's ride along with Mireille-san and confirm his power.
I proposed to the two of them have a duel.
The duel concluded smoothly, with Erd-san emerging as the victor.
And to my surprise, Erd-san even effortlessly healed Mireille-san's injury in an instant.
This...I'm convinced at this point.
He has to be the Hero of Light, there’s no doubt about it...!
“Would you consider becoming a part of a group of heroes dedicated to defeating the Demon King for the well-being of our kingdom?”
I extended an invitation to him.
However, at that very moment, a sudden pain gripped my heart.
I had an incurable disease.
While I called it an illness, it was more akin to a curse.
I was told that no one could cure it.
The castle priest said that this was probably a sign of the Demon King's resurrection.
It was documented in the scriptures that a mysterious and strange disease begins to spread several years before the Demon King's resurrection.
Mireille-san’s younger sister actually had the same illness, in fact.
Because of this, Mireille-san and I had known each other for quite some time.
Even though I took the trouble to find the Hero of Light, am I going to die like this?
In my chest, I felt a crushing weight.
And then, the back of my throat starts to hurt, and I end up coughing up blood.
In such a state, Erd-san gently cradled me in his arms.
And to my surprise, he started casting a healing spell on me.
However, healing magic never had any effect on this disease.
No matter how famous the court physicians were, it was impossible to alleviate the symptoms let alone cure it.
That’s how it was supposed to be–
When Erd-san cast his recovery magic on me, my chest gradually felt lighter.
And the pain I felt just moments ago now felt like a distant memory.
Could it be that this is the power of the Hero of Light...?
If it's him, he might actually be able to defeat the Demon Lord.
Yes! Surely, Erd-sama is the chosen one of destiny!
"Erd-sama...you are the Hero of Light...I've been looking for you for a long time. My love...♡"
I made up my mind in my heart, that I will admire this person for the rest of my life...
So, I returned to the classroom, and now I find myself sandwiched between Mireille and Claire...
For some reason, I feel the two of them staring at me passionately.
I wonder if these noble ladies have never experienced love before.
Lovey-dovey vibes are practically radiating from their eyes, no longer concealed.
So, why me...?
Those gazes should have been directed towards Alt...!
The scenario of the game, it has been completely destroyed.
Because I've never seen a development like this happening in any of the routes.
Well, it would be nice if the destruction flag was destroyed along with it...
Wait a minute... Does this mean Alt's power as the Hero of Light won't awaken?
Healing Claire was supposed to be the trigger for Alt to awaken his powers.
In that case, will Alt remain without awakening any power like this?
So, just because I treated her before Alt, did that mean he'll continue to live his life as a mob...?
…. Please be a precious sacrifice to avoid my destruction flag, Alt-kun...
I thought about this while watching Alt-kun quietly eating his lunch by himself in the corner of the classroom.
"Yes, Eld-sama, here it comes say Ahhh~."
Claire, seated beside me, is saying "Ahh~" and feeding me while Arday looked on, a hint of envy in her gaze.
What on earth is this…….
