The Undying Drama Chapter 99 P2/3: Sinner
Within the Middle Ring of the Divine Hall where I met with Hilda Karlyle several times prior…
Halfmoon Leak’age was still unconscious on the ground as if he was under the effects of some kind of drug.
Securely restrained to a chair, the colossal Double Seventeen was currently undergoing treatment by Conney for his multitude of cuts.
Standing in the center of the hall as perpetually still as a statue, Hilda Karlyle quietly gazed at the injured sinner. Above her, the light just so happened to pass over her on its path downwards and cast a soft shadow over her that covered her features.
Double Seventeen: Why…
Double Seventeen: I already made up my mind not to commit any acts against God’s edict so why did it end up like this again…
Di Qi Ju: Mister Double Seventeen, are you truly the…
Di Qi Ju: …”Sinner”?
He lifted up his crestfallen face and gazed at my face in an unfocused manner.
Double Seventeen: Yes...no.
Double Seventeen: It’s not what you think...why did I still get found out? Why I can’t just be quietly forgiven?
Di Qi Ju: But...didn’t you just rob Naphier of her wish abilities recently?
Double Seventeen: ...Naphier? Ah...that mechanist…
Double Seventeen: I should be thanking her instead...why would I do that to her…
Hilda Karlyle: ---that’s enough.
She yelled from the center of the room and interrupted our fragmented conversation.
Hilda Karlyle: You’d better start from the very beginning, Double Seventeen.
Double Seventeen: Hah...from the beginning…
He sighed heavily, so heavily it was almost as weighty as his bulky frame.
Double Seventeen: Four years ago, I participated in my first Three Battles. Back then, I wasn’t all that different from you, Di Qi Ju.
Di Qi Ju: ...me?
Double Seventeen: I was only slightly older than you then. My body and power, similar to yours, didn’t really garner much attention.
Di Qi Ju: What?
Double Seventeen: The first time I joined the battle of Purity, I quickly realized that this style of fighting suited me the best. However, I wasn’t able to attain a decent ranking and fell outside of the top thirty two…
Double Seventeen: Even though I lost, there was a merchant took interest in me. So he invested a sum on money on me and allowed to perform a Sacred Rite in the Middle Ring to boost my wish points. He wanted to fight again in the future.
Hilda Karlyle: Who was that investor?
Double Seventeen: It...it was Three’floral Dawn from Numbers. His deal with me had nothing to do with this matter, don’t tell you’re trying to implicate him, Lady Clergyman?
Hilda Karlyle: Keep talking.
