Chapter 43 Part 2 - The Narrow-Eyed Villain of the Demon Academy

The worst and strongest villain. I became a narrow-eyed character Arsene Adel. DBT,Korean,Novel,Translation,Academy,NEVDA,Fantasy,Possession,Assassin

Adel handed Luna her dagger and gently wrapped her hand around it.


The dagger Adel had used for his first kill.


Fresh blood still stained the hilt of the blade.


However, strangely, she didn’t feel as scared as before.


Influenced by Adel’s strangely gentle atmosphere, she even felt a sense of ease.


That was when it happened.


“Ah……!”


A gasp escaped Luna's lips.


Adel had tightened his grip on her hand.


Plunge-.


The dagger in Luna's hand pierced the human's abdomen in an instant.


The sensation of flesh being torn and parted traveled up her fingertips.


Swish-.


Adel stroked Luna's head once, as if in praise, and whispered softly.


“Well done.”


A gentle murmur.


Luna accepted Adel's touch, her face flushed.

I helped Luna kill the human captive.


'I barely managed to pull it off.'


I watched Luna as she gasped for breath and wiped the sweat from her forehead.


'I almost made a huge mess of things.'


Idea's gaze as she watched the troubled Luna.


It was a potentially dangerous situation.


After all, Sytan did not tolerate weak-willed students.


'Especially a student who couldn't even kill a single human.'


If I had not intervened, Luna would likely have been expelled.


Of course, since she specialized in healing abilities, she could have provided support from the rear, so there was no need for her to kill humans directly.


However, my position and Sytan’s position were different, so it couldn’t be helped.


I approached Luna, who still hadn't calmed her breathing.


"Are you okay?"


Pat, pat.


I asked, patting Luna on the back.


"Ugh, I'm okay."


She forced an awkward smile and nodded her head with difficulty.


It seemed like her mental energy had been greatly depleted, but somehow she had managed to overcome it.


I was lost in thought as I looked at Luna, who was very grateful to me.


Did I just create a debt?


Luna's healing ability is useful in any situation.


So it was necessary to maintain a good relationship with Luna.


'......I'd better finish the job.'


Idea was looking at us with displeasure.


It seemed that she was dissatisfied because Luna had not killed the human prisoner.


In fact, it's the same as if I had killed him, so it's natural.


Idea was the first to speak.


"I can't understand why you did that."


Idea looked me up and down with cold eyes.


“If you have even a shred of conscience, you wouldn’t think that would be a passing grade.”


Idea's resolute words.


I shook my head at this.


"No, Student Luna also passed."


"What?"


A frown appeared on Idea's forehead.


A deliberately angry tone.


I continued to speak resolutely.


"Surely the instructor said that if you kill a human using your ability, you pass."


"......"


When I finished speaking, Idea crossed her arms as if to listen.


I realized that Idea's actions were a silent acceptance.


Idea also knew the value of Luna, just like me.


The rarity of a demon with healing abilities.


Isn't Luna almost the only one in the Demon World?


There may be more Demons who can use healing abilities if you look for them.


But the only healer I've ever met is Luna.


'There's no way the instructors of Sytan wouldn't know about Luna's value.'


Perhaps they are watching her as the next in line after me and the children of the Seven Deadly Sins.


That's because having a healer means saving a lot of precious medicine and time.


'So I guess they want me to convince her if I can.'


The current situation was also a test to find out about me.


The position of class president that Idea had given me.


That wasn't a position that could be obtained with mere force.


It was a position that could only be obtained by possessing the leadership to lead a unit.


Idea must have finished grasping the talent I possessed.


'But I haven't shown any significant tolerance or leadership.'


I had to show her.


To what extent I possessed the qualities of a leader.


I steeled my resolve and spoke to Idea.


"As you know, Luna is very talented. Her healing ability isn't a talent commonly seen in the Demon Realm, is it?"


"That's right."


Idea nodded her head.


It was her way of acknowledging that she also knew Luna's worth.


"I've come to realize the value of Luna's talent. That's why Luna is qualified to pass this training."


"Why on earth would you say that?"


I shrugged at Idea, who was blinking her eyes in disbelief.


"Luna used her worth to her advantage. I helped her because she's talented. Isn't that also a kind of ability?"


"Heh, how amusing."


My words were nothing more than sophistry.


I should be grateful that I didn't get cursed at right away.


Idea frowned and asked.


"By that logic, are you saying that you wouldn't bother with students who lack talent or are inferior?"


As if evaluating me, Idea narrowed her eyes and asked.


I twisted the corners of my mouth slightly and smiled wryly.


"That's a given."


"What?"


Idea's eyebrows twitched.


It must be because an answer that a leader should never give had popped out.


I sensed that this was the right time to make my move.


I could tell instinctively.


Idea wasn't angry even though an absurd answer came out of my mouth.


Rather, the emotion she was subtly expressing was...


'Interest'.


That's why I carefully chose the answer Idea wanted and opened my mouth.


"If they're untalented, I'll abandon them. There's no point in embracing them."
