“Ugh… Ngh…”

Lord Edward softly cried out; he slowly opened his eyes.

I’m not sure if it was because his vision was a bit blurred, but he kept closing and opening his eyes.

After a while, he slowly got up.

As he tried to stand up, he stumbled and was about to trip. In a panic, I used my body to support him as best as I could. Perhaps he lost too much blood.

It was then that Lord Edward turned his gaze upon me.

“Were you the one that saved me?”

I lightly nodded in response.

I wonder if he’ll notice who I actually am.

I stare at Lord Edward’s face nervously.

“Thank you. I got hurt pretty badly, I thought I was going to die out here. To be able to heal such wounds, you must be an amazing healer. Are you perhaps a saint?”

I shook my head.

I’m not a saint, I’m just Rachel.

Please notice me.

I continue to stare at him hoping that he would recognize me.

“May I have your name?”

“…Ray.”

But he never noticed.

He asked for my name, so I used the name he would always lovingly use to call out for me.

But it seemed like he didn’t have the slightest idea who I actually was.

“I see, that’s a nice name. Ray, was there anyone next to me?”

“I didn’t see anyone else. The only person I saw was just you, Lord Edward, collapsed on the ground there.”

“I see…”

I called out his name, but even then, he didn’t notice. I wonder if it’s because I look so different?

I closed my eyes with a sense of disappointment.

“I must go now. Thank you for saving me. If we ever meet again, I will be sure to repay this favor.”

Lord Edward expressed his gratitude and then started to walk, although unsteadily.

Is he going to leave me here? I don’t even know where this place is.

“I’ll go with you. It’s dangerous to walk around in your condition, going alone is too reckless.”

I used the most logical reason I could think of to stay by his side. I supported his body with my own and we started walking together.

Hey, Lord Edward. I’m Rachel. Won’t you please recognize me?

“I see. Thank you. You’re a really kind person.”

While feeling his warmth on my right side, we kept walking.

Surprisingly, Lord Edward started walking firmly.

We walked for a while, and suddenly we saw a familiar man collapsed on the ground.

“Robin!”

Lord Edward frantically rushed to his side. Oh, it’s Robin. He is one of Lord Edward’s trusted aides.

“Uh… ugh. Lord Edward… Are you unharmed?”

“Yeah. I’m fine, but right now we have to heal y-“

“…. There’s no need… I’m… Already… More importantly… Rachel… Gave birth… She’s… unconscious… Please… Hurry back… “

“… All right.”

Robin’s wounds were much deeper than Lord Edward’s.

His stomach had been ripped open, and his organs were bulging out. Even breathing must be painful for him. The sounds of his breath were faint and feeble.

His intestines were cut and torn to pieces; it was a horrible sight.

In his current condition, no amount of treatment would probably be of any use.

He had lost too much blood.

So much so, that the ground surrounding him was just a sea of blood.

Robin suddenly coughed blood.

“Lord Edward. It’s too late for me… Please… Just… Put me out… Of my misery…”

“… All right.”

“Thank… You… Lord Edward… Please… Be safe…”

As Lord Edward tells me to support Robin’s upper body, he drew his sword from his sheathe.

Robin slowly closed his eyes.

“Ray, stay still. Robin, thank you for everything up until now.”

And Lord Edward gracefully swung his blade.

And so, Robin, who was just moments painfully anguished, had died. In this world, no amount of medical treatment would have been able to save him.

Not even magic.

The least we could do as a sign for mercy was just to cut off his neck. 

All we could do was just reduce the time of his suffering.
