- Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin
- Chapter 3 - Well, brave hero with amnesia, what do you do? It's getting pretty noisy out there, what about you?
-I couldn’t believe the situation myself.
I can’t believe that I realized that I had no memory, no memory prior to engaging in the operation.
On the other hand, I didn’t realize it until I had a conversation with this witch Sylph.
“…I’m not sure if it’s amnesia or more of a temporary confusion…
I don’t think the blocking of thought communication was too effective…
If so, sorry about that.”
No, probably not.
I don’t think I was affected when my thought communication was interrupted.
But if I have no memory, who was the commander and what did he know….?
“…..Who the hell am I?”
“I’m afraid I have no way of finding out. I’m sorry.”
“Do you have any idea? I know the Empire does human trafficking, right?”
Sylph smiles a little wickedly at our words.
I think I understand why this girl is called a witch.
“Hmmm, you are very skeptical, aren’t you? It’s the organization you belong to, isn’t it?”
“…but they’ve been feeding me false information. They told me you are the head of a terrorist group.”
They want the terrorist group’s leader, Sylphina Bloommarin, eliminated.
That was a huge mistake, to begin with.
“Is that enough to make you suspicious?
But, you know what, there’s no proof that I’m telling the truth, is there?”
Sylph pats me gently on the shoulder.
“Are you taking my word for it?
Are you thinking clearly? I’m sorry, but I can’t afford to babysit.”
-What’s the big deal when you look like a child?
I thought to myself, I’m sorry, but I don’t have time to babysit you.
I naturally believed her because it was Sylph who told me the difference between the assigned task and reality and what seemed to be the answer, but there is no element that says I should believe everything she says. Nowhere. But still-
“There’s more reason to believe your word than those who have given me information that doesn’t mesh with what’s going on,” he said. “At least there are no discrepancies that I can see.”
“Phew, I see. That’s good. Don’t give up your own thinking, don’t be delusional about anything.”
Hearing these words, I felt I could tell she was a witch who would live 500 years.
I asked her again, “So, Sylph, I’m going to ask you one more time. Do you have any idea what it’s like to be me?”
“…in the 14 years war, the Human Nation and the Machine Empire were at war.
I have heard rumors of brainwashing prisoners of the human nation, that is, the Imperial Army.”
What is brainwashing prisoners of the Imperial Army? Is it possible with nanomachines?
“Is it possible?”
“Technically it would be possible. You just have to change their thought transmissions.”
I see. It certainly seems possible if we could hear something like the voice of the commander all the time, or if it were done to a deeper level of the mind.
“Now, my amnesiac hero. What about you?”
The diversionary forces and the elf traffickers are fighting.
At least Sylph will be in danger if they do not escape.
But what about me?
“-I’ll give you my answer first. Let me run away.
At least, I don’t have the strength to take on the elite forces of the empire right now.”
The witch Sylph quickly packed her things.
In front of her, I was unable to make a decision.
“…what’s wrong? You look like such an abandoned puppy.”
‘No, I just don’t know what to do.”
I can’t bring myself to go back to the imperial army that tried to use me with no memory.
But I have no idea where to go from here.
With no memories of myself, no past, I have no guidance.
“I would tell you not to ask others for answers, but I think that would be too much for you right now.
…I’ll give you a little advice…from a life’s senior.”
Amidst the sounds of bows and arrows, ray bayonets, and angry shouts that are unique to the battlefield, her eyes were more beautiful than anything else. They were like jewels.
She said, “There are roughly two options for you.
One is to return to the Imperial Army, and the other is to escape from the Imperial Army.
If you choose the former, it is best that you return with my head.”
I couldn’t bring myself to choose that one.
The first thing is that the mission you were given was a lie, but this girl doesn’t look like a bad person. She even has a kind of nobility about her.
“Tell me, what would be your best move if you chose the latter …?”
“Come with me. At least we have the same goal in mind until we escape this place.”
