I had to save Misha. With this single-minded intention, I ran out of the house but soon faltered and stopped dead in my tracks.
The moment I left the grounds of the Endenbergs' house, a dramatic world opened up before my eyes.
A medieval European townscape as far as the eye could see.
The cobblestone boulevards were filled with horse-drawn carriages and many people coming and going, and the area was buzzing with bustling activity.
As in the game, there is no way that the game only describes the scenery within the area.
The buildings in the far distance are visible, and the blue sky is endless.
I can see buildings in the distance, and the blue sky is endless.
The sights I could see, the smells reaching my nose, the sounds hitting my eardrums, and even the taste of the air on my tongue—these were beyond my imagination, imbued with a certain reality that cannot be expressed in a game.
Everything in this world, seen from a 5-year-old's point of view, seemed so overwhelming.
Would I change this world?
I suddenly felt as if I was a small person.
No, it wasn't that I was beginning to feel small.
In fact, I was probably small.
My body belongs to a child with no talent, and inside I am a useless person who used to be a NEET in Japan.
Only in magic, I have become reasonably good at it through hard work, but there are still higher-ups out there.
How does a kid like that change the world?
How will I help Crescencia?
—Before that, how I am going to save Misha?
I was the one who had game knowledge and even felt almighty until a moment ago.
I can only laugh at the stupidity of it all.
What can I do with my game knowledge?
Even if I know the secrets of this world, and have knowledge that amounts to predicting the future, I'm still just a five-year-old kid.
Even if I were to go all out now, I'm sure I wouldn't have the slightest effect on this world.
It is the equivalent of dropping a drop of black ink into the vast ocean.
That's all I am now.
I might as well just stay cooped up in the house .
—Just as my thoughts were beginning to turn in a negative direction, Misha's face flashed across my mind.
The girl who had risked so much for me over the past three months.
I knew that my life up to this day was not so easy that I could abandon her life.
But my legs won't move.
I'm really sorry.
This is why I was NEET.
I'm so afraid.
Because I realized something just now.
This world is not a game.
Maybe, no, definitely, it's not the way I want it to be.
“Oh my God!”
Don't think in the negative! Look at the positive!
First of all, I' m dealing with a vampire!
Their physical abilities are far superior to humans, and when they are a higher species, they are powerful enemies who deal with powerful unique sorcery.
This time, the enemy is the same individual as the boss of the event that appears in the middle of the main story of Arcue, and although it is not a higher species, its strength in battle is quite high.
This is a story that takes place ten years from now, in the middle of the story.
Ten years later, he has gained the ability to become a powerful boss.
If he had just started attacking humans, even I might be able to compete with him.
The plan is simple.
A self-respecting vampire would probably judge me by my appearance and let his guard down.
The vampire in the film was one of those characters.
I would take advantage of this opportunity and attack him at once, using physical reinforcement and magic with the holy attribute, which is a vampire's weak point.
I am not only unaccustomed to combat, but I have no experience in combat, so it is doubtful that I can handle such a random strategy.
I'm not even sure if I'm ready for this yet, but I've decided to search for the vampire's current location.
First, the vampire's hiding place, which can be narrowed down to a certain extent because they need to fulfill multiple requirements in order to move comfortably.
One of the conditions is no sun.
Vampires are vulnerable to sunlight and are weakened when it hits them.
Even sunlight leaking through a crack in the curtains will burn their skin if it strikes them.
If they are going to hide, it should be in a place where they will never be exposed to sunlight.
Second, there are no water streams in the surrounding area.
Vampires, who are immortal, meaning that their age does not flow, are extremely incompatible with water, which has the property of flowing.
When they pass directly over water, they are weakened at once.
They will avoid places where there is water around, just in case.
And third, they are nearby nature.
Vampires can transform into bats, and they can also serve small animals that they have fed with their own blood.
In peace, vampires use small animals as a guard, and when the time comes, they become bats and flee into the wild.
All I had to do was find a place that met these three requirements.
How was I to find a place without knowing where it was?
I live in a city called Romeria, which I will definitely visit in the final stages of the game.
I have completed the game more than a 1000 times, and I have the map perfectly memorized.
There must have been only one place in the city of Romeria that looked like nature.
I decided to go there immediately.
I proceeded down the main street, passing through a peddler's block lined with various types of stores, and then a residential area.
Eventually, I arrived at a large, spacious park.
Grasslands spread out all around, and small animals could be heard without having to be present.
There was no water around ——, but there was only one river running through the area.
If we had secured an escape route in advance, we would not have been disturbed.
The only thing left to do is to find a place where the sun can be blocked, but as far as I can see, there doesn't seem to be anything like that.
Was I wrong?
No, it is not a given that there are vampires in the park.
Let's widen our search a little more.
This time, let's focus on the buildings near the park.
Although it is far from the residential area, there are many buildings as it is a city.
The lineup ranges from sturdy new buildings to abandoned buildings that are as bare as a house.
It would be difficult to find a vampire hideout among them.
A rat runs right by me.
It might have belonged to a vampire.
I had to look for it without being detected.
“Ugh, mom, where are you? Mom!”
It's not right for to suddenly start crying, so she giggles and then calls out “mama” as if she's running for her life.
Now I encounter a lost child.
The reason why she looks around frantically is because she is looking for her mother.
However, in this state, I looked for a while in the surrounding buildings, back alleys, and other suspicious places, but, no matter what, I couldn't find the vampire.
I continued my search further, but time was running out and nothing was progressing.
It seemed I had walked a long way, and I found myself back on the main street.
I still had a lot of work to do, but my legs were tired from all the walking I had done since this morning, and my young body was beginning to complain of drowsiness.
I knew I couldn't go on like this.
But what should I do?
I stand in the middle of a main street where many people come and go.
The inhabitants of this world are surprisingly cold, and everyone who passes by ignores the five-year-old who stands there stunned.
It's just like Japan, isn't it?
Nothing seems to be working.
But I can't give up.
If I give up, Misha will die.
No, maybe Misha is already…
No, of course not!
I slapped my cheeks hard and faced forward with a strong spirit.
I had left my sickening self in Japan, where I could only brood.
I'm here to change the world, Norwin, and I'm not going to let something like this get me down.
I'll be fine.
It's okay, I still have energy.
I'm going to resume my search, and I'm going to start walking again…
“Hey, kid, what's up? Are you lost?”
I turn around to see someone there.
I turn around to see the person in front of me, and my eyes widen.
Why is this person here right now ?
“What, you know me?”
Schneizel patted me on the head.
Schneizel is a general in the Arcadia Royal Army that appears in the main story of gane .
He is also called the strongest in the game , and in one route, he even becomes one of the heroes' party member .
Encountering such a person made me move my lips before I could think.
