Chapter 26: I will go, have a talk even I’m sleepy.
I seemed to have fallen asleep.
I woke up from my sleep because I smelled the smell of blood.
There are various bad smells.
Obviously, there is a smell of beasts and smells of blood, but there is also a sweet iron smell that makes my fangs tickle.
It could come from various animals, humans perhaps, as well as demons.
“This smell, it is ‘old blood’ right?” (Arge)
The smell of blood drifting in the air was not fresh but it’s just recent.
After being scattered, it was left alone, after a while it became old as it is. It smells like that.
Of course, it didn’t smell like blood from a long time ago…
I was confident that my vampire instinct has with “old blood”
There is no evidence, but I felt it was like that.
“Wake up, Argento” (Neguseou) (TN: Neguseou don’t use –san or Arge but Argento)
“Oh, Neguseou-san” (Arge)
“ What happened, Neguseou-san?
You have a strange face.
Did you have any problems?
Neguseou-san? Hey, Neguseou-san. Ne~ gu~ se~ ou~-san.” (Arge)
“Yes, it’s okay, no problems.” (Neguseou)
It was fun to tease Neguseo-san and see his complicated face every time I called his name, but I stopped because, from the smell of his blood, he was anxious.
I raise my body from the bed of grass and used my hands to sweep the dirt and leaves off my clothes.
From the inclination of the day, right now it was evening.
If I concentrate on smell, I can immediately pinpoint the direction in which the smell came from.
“It’s the smell of people, is not it?” (Arge)
It is not only the smell of “old blood”.
I also smell some people mixed in.
Humans and “old blood”.
And the story of Oswald, when combining all of them together, there is one thing that I can think of.
“I found you!” (someone is talking far away and our MC can hear it)
“ ―― Bumo~o~o~o~o~o~o~o! ! ! !” (Oswald)
“Kya ~” (Arge)
Because I can hear words from a far, a siren-like roar throughout the forest.
I was surprised and close my ears, but that is probably the voice of Oswald-kun.
“The Guardian of the forest is fighting” (Neguseou)
“No, that is wrong.” (Arge)
“Mu…what does that mean?” (Neguseou)
The scent that stimulates the nose is getting darker and steadier.
It is a fragrance of new blood, so strong that it overcomes the smell of old blood.
However, the important thing is that new blood smell is from a demon, or more accurately, it is a Bull’s smell.
“He seems to be pushed back.” (Arge)
If Oswald-kun is dominating, the new blood will have a sweet iron smell, the smell of human blood.
It is not my favorite smell but it arouses my vampire’s instinct the most.
Right now, I can only smell people’s smell but I can smell monsters and the smell of their blood too.
That’s mean only the monsters are getting hurt.
“Neguseou-san, I will go on ahead a little, so please follow me slowly.” (Arge)
“What are you going to do?” (Neguseou)
“A few days ago, I separate from the person I’m indebted without even saying goodbye …
I do not want it to happen twice.” (Arge)
Floating in my mind is an odd eye and big breast girl, Felnote-san.
She is a serious person and she is probably mad at me for not even saying a word before leaving.
I will apologize if I meet her again someday.
(TN: Yes, she is really, really mad, she wasted all her scene time in character info to swear that she will catch you and complain a whole lot)
… For now, let’s clean up things before my eyes.
(I guess she means to help Oswald out of his mess)
It will be bad if Oswald-kun gets killed, I have not even said goodbye or thank him yet.
More important, It made me sad that I cannot take a nap comfortably. Literally.
When I thought so, I already left Neguseo-san and was running ahead.
From behind, I heard his surprised voice again, but I do not have time to explain now so I will leave him alone.
The smell of blood is getting stronger. I guess it would be better to hurry.
