[Shuumatsu] V4 C3 Things Which Cannot Be Reclaimed P5

The Scarlet Haired Girl

The girl just barely avoided being spotted. She pressed her palm over her rapidly pulsing chest. Deep breath. Deep breath. Gradually, her breathing and heartbeat came under control. Hiding in the shadows, she desperately tried to calm herself down.

“What’s wrong? Standing still and hiding all of a sudden.” A woman’s voice sounded from the seemingly empty space beside the girl’s ear. Then, the air in front of the girl flickered, and, just like a colored liquid filling a clear glass, a fish like creature with translucent red and silver scales revealed itself. The flying fish, whose voice did not depend on physical sound, whispered to the girl again. “… that boy you were just looking at seemed a little strange. The color of his soul hadn’t disappeared. It seems unlikely that he would still be connected with his actual body, though.”

“… impossible …”

“Oh? Why are you blushing? He did have decent looks. Did you fall for him?”

“No, no that!” The girl turned to face the fish. “It was Willem! He shouldn’t be here!”

“Willem? … ah, that Second Technician who that girl met up in the sky?”

The young girl, her face now deeply flushed red, nodded vigorously.

“Well, in that case, he might be the reason why time in this world suddenly started moving again last week.”

“Probably…”

“Wonderful! He’s really strong isn’t he? I’m assuming he also wants to get out of here, so if we reveal our identities, he might help us!”

“That won’t work. He probably really hates me.” The girl clenched her fists. “If he finds out who I am, it’ll cause him great suffering.”

“… how did your relationship get this bad before you even met him for the first time?” The fish said as she shook her tail fins. “Well if you say so, then I guess we’ll have to do it by ourselves. It looks like the dates are a bit off, but pretty soon that day will come to this world. When it happens, we need to find your body and release it.” With that, the flying fish traced out a circle in the sky with a dance and disappeared, seemingly melting into thin air.

“Okay.” As she answered, the young girl cautiously peeked out from the shadows of the small alley where she stood. She searched for a particular young man amidst the bustling evening crowds, but couldn’t find him anywhere. He must have walked off somewhere already.

“You’re interested in him, aren’t you?” The fish, although now formless, still whispered to the girl.

“… not really. He’s not even that handsome. I don’t have bad taste like Kutori.” The girl shook her head and went back into the alley.

“All you care about is looks, huh.”

Soon enough, the rapidly descending evening darkness enveloped the girl in shadow.

    • I don’t think so either because Elk Harksten like Willem is looking for their real bodies in the WorldEnd Gateways, though if she revealed herself as a Goddess and that Willem’s Girlfriend killed her because she did not want Willem to be a Brave Dragon Prince I wonder if that might change any of Willem’s feelings?
      Unfortunately for Elk Harksten someone manipulated Lilliya to execute her, Elk still has little idea that when she died she became entombed in the IceRock and she herself was frozen for 529 Years. If I were Willem and had knew all this I would have brought the frozen Elk to the Medical facillity after finding her and unfrozen her. She may be the only hope that they have of defeating the Traitor Overlord.

  1. Wait… So Kutori’spersonality was completely lost? If it is Kutori, or at least the new personality, then I would understand why her appearance would bring great suffering to him. Although, I hope Kutori comes back. Thanks for the chapter!

    • It’s not a new personality, that’s just Elq.
      She’s the girl that was stuck in the ice that Willem saw, the one that encroached upon Kutori’s body, and the Visitor.

    • technically she’s dead but kutori appearance as well as her basic personality is hers. moreover seems like she inherited kutori memories so in a way they’re a same person.

      • Not really, she did show that she considers Kutori a separate entity, so I wouldn’t say they are technically the same person, just that Kutori was overwritten. Now I’m getting sad…

      • The Little Girl is, Elk Harksten yessss is very much dead for she had made her body into an crystal to empower an mega Quasi Regal Prime Mainframe Computer that was supposed to take the dead souls and pair them with resurrected bodies….now 2 of the 17 Gem Crystals are rebelling, ahhhh Jade Nails Crystal and the Elk crystal, if they can suck up the 7 remaining Mage-Brave Heart Guardians magic hearts they win and can resurrect themselves as Human Gods again, only 4 people remain alive inside the WorldEnd Gateway Mainframe, Willem, Nephren, Lillya and Narutri Teigozak. If Willem and Nephren cannot shut down those 2 insane crystals then they will be trapped in the WorldEnd Gateway Mainframe Computer forever….or their souls will, their bodies will be destroyed. Suwon and Ebon Candle are helping from the WordEnd Black Island, if anything Ebon wants to take his daughter into another WorldEnd Gateway to caretake the telepathic Dinosaurs which the Ultimate Beast Monsters once were. Can you blame Ebon Candle? I sure don’t.

    • DEFINATELY YES, Renuac FINALLY SOMEONE GETS THE POINT! Elk Harksten may be the only one that is holding their memories and souls all together, I think she wants to find “Daddy Ebon Candle” and stop the Traitor God Brave Knight Manipulating Overlord. Yesss the World was frozen more than once apparently.

  2. O.o E-elq..?

    I see, a visitor, the ship now is a visitor.. Well, after fighting visitors and defeating Ebon. I know why Elq going hesitant.

    But seriously, does the world actually got swallowed and stuck in time? If that so, perhaps the first ship can be saved.. Almaria.. (But the title.. warrgghhh)

    Thank you for your translations Fgilan-sama~

    • You…didn’t forget in the vol. 1 how the 1st Beast howling, did you?
      Physically, Almaria is beyond saving, but at least, I wish Willem can save her soul. She’s been waiting for him in that world for 500 years.

      • cloudytama unfortunately in the LN we are reading Elk Harksten has just absorbed completely what remained of Almaria’s heart and soul and is using that to manipulate Nephren, ChtHolly to make her think she is indeed a dissappearing soul that is dead and it is not the case at all, also drive Willem out of his mind not to find the Mainframe Computer and reset the crystals. If Willem can do something simple which is reset the Jade Nails Crystal, take the Elk Harksten Crystal and resurrect it to be the Elk Harksten that wants to find and be with her daddy Ebon Candle then go away with Daddy and become caretakers with the telepathic Dinosaurs in their own WorldEnd Present Future Gateway……it would be perfect, sadly Lillya and Nvrutri are killed but they help Willem find the Mainframe Gem computer and he resets it completely. Thereby resetting the clock on Regul Airies and the planet of Quasi Regal Prime so they can have a spaceage and use those spaceships.

  3. Just a hunch, but I guess the beasts are actually a collective consciousness of humanity that was paused in time. Wilhelm’s talisman gave him like a proxy access which caused the pause to start moving again.

    The visitors are also trapped inside, while the dreams are of reality outside the hive mind.

    This implies that the people aren’t actually dead…but more stored. It could be that True World’s goal was to have the beasts end all other life and then revert back to humans from the stored consciousnesses. Thus humanity would finally be without enemies, explaining why a Brave could lead the organisation.

  4. Love you as always Fgi-san!

    I personally think Willem would not bluntly reject Elq tho. The body originally was Elq’s and with the copy of Kutori memory, its practically Kutori + Elq’s past memories. Tho, I doubt Kutori’s personality would be the same by seeing how much Elq reject William T_T

    • Elk realized that ChtHolly is being manipulated actually zapped her soul into herself to save her, she realized Willem and a few Brave Knights are the only ones that can destroy the Traitor God Brave Knight that is doing all this crap, what would you do to save the 17 WorldEndGateways, I would do as Elk Harksten has done.
