Chapter 255: The Sage Makes the Final Preparations
That day, I was in the former Demon Lord’s territory.
It was a mixed region of wastelands and deserts.
There were no buildings in the vicinity and there were no signs of life here.
It was a completely abandoned place.
Today, I would revive the previous Hero here.
The reason it wasn’t carried out in the Demon Lord’s territory was to prevent any collateral from happening.
I had no idea what could happen once the plan commences.
So I chose to proceed with the plan in the place where collateral damage wouldn’t matter just in case.
According to past literature and anecdotes, there were some who attempted to resurrect the dead.
All of them failed miserably.
The resurrection of the dead was representative of the taboo of magic.
However, I intended to do it successfully.
I was already fully prepared.
After checking many times, I was convinced it was possible.
The situation would receive a boost from the Will of the World.
It would bring that person back to life without a doubt.
A huge magic circle was drawn on the ground in front of me.
It was the spell prepared for this.
Dozens of directors were doing final touch-ups in various locations.1
They were inspecting for any defects or deficiencies in the spell structure.
The keepsake sword was stuck in the center of the magic circle.
It was the weapon that symbolized her.
That sword was filled with various feelings and experiences.
It wasn’t something that could be excluded when talking about the previous hero.
It was an absolutely necessary piece to resurrect her.
There was a crystal and a glass container at my feet.
The former contained the remains of that person.
It had been stored there ever since I left the Valley of the Dead, but it would finally be released from the crystal.
I had a strange feeling as that moment crawled closer.
As for the latter, it was the soul that was just cleaned before.
But it was in a different state now.
Gwen tampered with it in the last few days so that the main body of the Will of the World would be able to dwell there.
In addition, the soul was also engraved with information of that person.
Specifically, it was a record of anecdotes, feats, and traces of the travel of the previous hero that remained in various places.
In addition, the memories about people who were closely related to that person — which were to say I, Logan, Luciana, and Diella — were also engraved there.
The collected information would be used to form that person.
Strictly speaking, it wouldn’t be resurrection, but a reproduction of her instead.
It wouldn’t bring that person who was executed back then, back to life.
There was nothing I could do about this part.
From the moment the main body of the Will of the World would dwell within, there was no way she would be the same person in a true sense.
I had tolerated that part.
It wasn’t a plan that proceeded solely based on personal feelings.
It wouldn’t be possible to achieve much without some compromise.
As I stared at the remains and soul, I heard footsteps from behind.
Gwen was approaching me with a cheerful tone.
She was waving her hand and talking to me.
“Hello, how are you doing?”
Gwen stared at my face intently.
As she observed it from a close distance, she stroked her chin and said.
“Your expression is somewhat stiff. Maybe you’re nervous?”
“…It’s natural to be a little nervous.”
I argued when her opinion hit the mark.
Considering what I would do from now on, it was obvious to feel nervous.
The director was also unusually absorbed in her work with a serious atmosphere surrounding her.
Gwen was the only one relaxed here.
“You see, Havelt-san, you have to relax more. The results won’t change regardless of what you think after all, so it is important to keep your calm.”
Gwen spoke lightly and embraced me in a familiar way.
If Grom was here, they would proceed to have a death match.
Grom valued courtesy towards the Demon Lord and asked that others do the same.
I had witnessed the two quarreling with each other several times over the last few days.
Sure enough, the compatibility of their personalities was extremely bad.
Even so, Gwen’s attitude felt odd.
Even though she seemed to act normally, I felt like something was off.
Since I was curious, I spoke my mind about my speculations.
“Did you come to encourage me?”
“—No way. I just came to make fun of you to kill my boredom.”
Gwen returned to being expressionless and left easily.
She turned around and started walking.
“Where are you going?”
“I’m going to take a walk for a while.”
Gwen answered as she walked away.
I still couldn’t understand her behavior.
However, that was always the case.
She basically does things according to her mood and loves to tease people.
Leaving her alone would be the correct choice.
Other executives would be coming soon.
In the meantime, I should help the director.
