When Houri’s words fell, an indescribable silence began to permeate between the two.
Sylvia just lowered her head, not knowing what she was thinking about, but the hand interlocked with Houri’s fingers was slightly tightened, must be very unsettled inside, right?
Houri also did not speak again, only to hold Sylvia’s hand back, as if to tell this shoujo, do not have any burden, with the other side’s force increase more and more.
It was not until a moment later that Sylvia let out a sigh.
“It doesn’t look like a joke.” Sylvia first said, and then immediately said again.
“I don’t know what’s going on, but it doesn’t matter, if that’s the only way, then I’ll accompany you.”
“Accompanying?” Houri said with a moment of hesitation. “What you mean is…”
“What do you think I mean?” Sylvia looked at Houri’s hesitant expression, put a naughty smile on her face again, and murmured. “Although it’s a bit of a change from a confession to a proposal all of a sudden…”
“Proposal?” Houri was stunned.
“Isn’t it?” Sylvia glanced at Houri and said while smiling faintly. “I’m going to follow you, isn’t that a proposal?”
So who’s proposing to whom?
Houri didn’t have the guts to say it out loud.
So, Houri somewhat dumbfounded said. “I mean, it’s not as nice as you think, but where I’m going, it could be hell for you?”
“Hell?” Sylvia said sarcastically as the smile disappeared from her face. “Do you think that this is heaven?”
Sylvia’s words made Houri a little speechless.
This place, or even this world, is definitely not a paradise.
This Aquatic city seems to be peaceful, but that’s just a superficial phenomenon.
For example, there are various criminals in the redevelopment area, and once intended to sell Genestellar such as Houri and Sylvia as human experimental products.
Laminamors and Valda, for example, have been operating in the shadows, preying on everyone.
In today’s reality, where the state system is weak and the Integrated Enterprise Foundation controls the world, everything has become quite distorted.
In order to keep the gap between the rich and the poor and stabilize the economic lifeline, Integrated Enterprise Foundation deliberately creates the poor and even turns the border countries into battlefields.
In order to make money and profit, Integrated Enterprise Foundation organizes Festa to lure people with all kinds of desires to this city and become a tool to please everyone, and once they become the winner, they are willing to fulfill all kinds of dark wishes.
So, this world is actually more twisted than hell.
At least, hell will make people die at once.
This world, on the other hand, is slowly sucking the blood of all people, slowly forcing most of them into a demon nest of chronic death.
Which side is better in this comparison?
Sylvia is the world’s first diva.
For this reason, this freedom-loving and singing shoujo must have seen a lot of darkness, right?
“If I could get out of this situation, even if it was hell, I would love to go there.”
Sylvia chuckled and said. “After all, I’m such a person who doesn’t want to give in.”
Sylvia’s smile made it very clear that this shoujo was as good as it looked.
Obviously, this shoujo did think so.
At once, Houri could not help but say. “Don’t you have any attachments to the world?”
“I’m sure I do,” Sylvia said without hesitation. “For example, what will happen to the kouhai I know in the academy? After leaving this place, I won’t be able to participate in the ‘Lindwurm Festa’ for revenge, and Ursula hasn’t woken up yet. There are too many things to remember.”
“But as I said, I don’t want to be tied down by my current position.” Sylvia looked straight at Houri and said bluntly. “So, if you can, can you give me some time?”
In this moment, Sylvia’s eyes carried only the usual frank and straightforward emotions.
Although she is a world-class diva, Sylvia has always been so open to her own heart and to all people and things, never going against her will and truly being herself.
That’s why Sylvia’s voice can penetrate the heart.
That’s why Sylvia is capable of doing everything.
As she says, she will never be bound by external factors and will only pursue what she thinks is right.
To be able to keep searching for her sensei for ten years as one day is enough to prove this point.
Houri realizes what a great person this shoujo is who confesses that she wants to be in a relationship with himself.
Houri himself is a person who follows his heart, and it is impossible not to resonate with such a shoujo who does not hide herself.
“So that’s how it is…” Houri said to himself as if he had some clarity. “So maybe that’s why we’re where we are now?”
“Maybe.” Sylvia seemed to understand what Houri was referring to, and smiled sweetly. “So, no matter what, it’s never boring to be with you.”
Since the girl had already said this, what else could Houri say?
At that moment, Houri pondered for a while and raised a hand abruptly.
In that hand, a parchment had appeared unknowingly.
The parchment was engraved with arcane runes, which in turn formed a Rubik’s Cube formation, emitting a faint light, and at a glance, it was clear that it was no ordinary object.
Looking at this parchment, Sylvia could not help but ask with some curiosity and surprise. “What is this?”
“A contract.” Houri smiled slightly at Sylvia and said. “Simply put, if you want, by this contract, you and I will share our lives and must rely on each other for the rest of our lives.”
Saying this, Houri said with a smile again. “But it doesn’t seem to be the right time to use it.”
Hearing this, Sylvia smiled abruptly and reached out her hand, snatching the parchment from Houri’s hand.
Before Houri could react, Sylvia said.
“I’ll keep this for now.”
Saying this, Sylvia stretched out a finger, against Houri’s lips, with the most beautiful smile, slowly said.
“After I use it, you have to remember to pick me up.”
Such words made Houri smile helplessly.
