Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin - Chapter 13
- Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin
- Chapter 13 - In other words, I'm going to destroy the brain and the nanomachines, but it'll be fixed again immediately, so it's okay.
“Thank you for waiting, John.”
I look at Dr. Chloe, who has returned to the examination room.
I got dressed again and relaxed.
I wasn’t embarrassed, but it was a little awkward to be in a closed room.
“Well then, how am I? “
“Uhm. Basically, I see it the same way as Sylphina.”
So you were one of the prisoners of the Imperial Army who were brainwashed by
Well, in fact, that’s probably the most likely explanation.
Considering the fact that you were deprived of your memory and given a false mission.
“There is only one possibility that this is not the case.”
“What do you mean?”
“Normally, the light would allow you to see your memories before you lost them. It may be blurry, but it’s still there.”
She said that the memory should be able to be seen in that medical examination when his head was put in the water.
“Well, even if they are seen, there is a difference in degree, and whether or not the content of the lost memories can be understood is another matter. However, I can confirm that such memories do exist.”
… Hey, I don’t think you’re kidding when you say this.
“I would have preferred that Sylphina be present, but I will let you know. And I can’t let it impair my right to self-determination.”
“You are making me feel very impatient… Is it that bad?”
Dr. Chloe shakes her head at her words.
“No, I don’t know yet if it’s bad or not.
It’s the fact that I could not see your memory in the earlier examination.
We can’t say for sure what that means.”
You don’t remember anything before that?
My memories before I was given that unintelligible mission never existed in the first place?
If so, what am I? This body must be at least in its late teens.
“-The Empire is not stupid.
They have established a method of de-brainwashing in that 14-years war.
Which means there’s a good chance we have countermeasures against it.”
Brainwashing techniques for enemy soldiers established during the 14-years war.
The countermeasure by priests against it, and the new technology prepared against it.
“You mean that nanomachines are evolving?”
“Yes, that is very likely. It has been two years since the peace was made.
Even more so since all prisoners of war have been returned, according to the surface.”
So it has to be done even more skillfully than in the state of war…
“But I am not an expert on nanomachines.
I can’t give you a definitive diagnosis.”
“… I see. So you are saying that the current medical science in this country can’t cure the disease.”
Dr. Chloe nods to my words.
“If you want to use a method that’s still in the experimental, hypothetical stage and hasn’t been clinically tested yet, there is a way, but…”
“….what? What kind of method?”
“Forcibly deactivate the nanomachines in the body and then heal the wounds with a healing blessing.”
This method was invented during the 14-years-war, but was never officially adopted due to its high risk.
“You mean you’re going to destroy the nanomachines with the whole brain, but I’m going to be fine because you’re going to heal it right away?”
“Simply said, yes. But I can’t use it this time.”
That’s quite a grotesque treatment to hear from a kind doctor.
Even though it was not officially adopted, they must have tried it during the war.
…my liver got cold.
“I think that’s all for now.”
If the nanomachines stop or if we have a nanomachine specialist, the patient can be examined more deeply, but it may be difficult to do so at this point.
….stuck in the middle, huh?
“How long will the doctor be here?”
“Until today. I’ve finished examining Mr. John, so I’m free to go now.”
“…too bad, I thought I could count on you to take good care of me.”
I don’t have a lot of information about being a doctor or a priest, but I kind of get it. This medical priestess, Chloe Sargent, is the real deal. She is not the same age as Sylphy, but she has the same kind of dignity that Sylphy has.
“Hmmm, do you plan to follow me on my journey to find my brother, as I intend to be your doctor?”
“No, I’m on my way too. I’m going to the land of the dwarves.”
“I see. Is it true what you said about Sylphina not staying in one place?”
Dr. Chloe serves me orange juice as she says this.
“John is the only patient here today anyway, so why don’t you join?”
“Are you sure…?”
“Yes. Will Sylphina be here to pick you up?”
I nodded to Dr. Chloe’s question. That’s the plan.
I don’t know what a field trip is.
“If so, I’d like to meet her. She is a legendary elf.”
“She was one of the brave ones who defeated the Demon King…”
Chloe nods to my words.
“Of course, that’s not the only thing she has done.
But she is a great predecessor by any measure of achievement, and if I could see her, I would, at least once.”
“If the doctor has the time, it should be fine. Just wait and she will come.”
I answered yes and got an orange juice.
It was well cooled and tasted good.
“Phew, now I can finally drink this tasty juice.”
“Is that the one you always drink?”
“Yes. Being a doctor is tiring. I wanted something sweet.”
So you wanted to drink it all before you retired.
“I see. I know it was an unreasonable request, but I’m honored to be of service to you in some small way.”
“I guess that’s God’s way of making me feel better about myself.”
Seeing Dr. Chloe’s kindly smiling face made me feel like thanking God.
It was around that time when I was feeling such warmth.
“This church hospital is occupied by us!
Don’t even think about resistance. Come to the main hall.
Anyone who hides or resists for more than 10 minutes will be killed without mercy!”
