The Classless Transferee's Skill Copy - Chapter 59
Chapter 59: A Desperate Rescue and the Past
Blood spurting from my mouth, I fell to the ground…
Kylie ran up to me as I fell.
At the same time, the Poison Scorpion also burrowed into the ground, making noise…
That attack… forced me into a defensive!
As the pain from both being skewered and from the poison rushing through my body hit me simultaneously, I coughed up blood and screamed in agony.
“Aruto! Stay with me, Aruto!”
With a look of despair on her face, Kylie called my name countless times.
I wanted to answer her, but right now, I couldn’t. I coughed, sputtering out blood at the same time.
I tried to use Recover, but my consciousness was fading…
“W-what do I do? W-what should I do? I haven’t learned Recover… Potions won’t cut it, either! How am I supposed to do this…?!”
Seeing me in pain, Kylie became impatient and started thinking about what she could do.
“I’ve gotta heal his injuries first!”
After using Heal, she placed her palm on my stab wound, closing it up.
However, since the poison hadn’t been dealt with, I continued to coup up blood from my mouth.
“Aruto! Is there really… nothing I can do?”
At this rate, I’d die…
But, unable to do anything, Kylie fell to her knees on the spot.
Then, her condition bracelet received a transmission.
Noticing this, she responded.
It seemed like Garuna was on the other side.
“Ah, I finally got through to you! Kylie, Aruto-kun, are you alright?”
“Onee-chan! Help! Aruto is… Aruto is…!”
“Huh!? What happened to Aruto-kun!”
“Aruto… protected me from the Poison Scorpion’s attack, and ended up getting poisoned himself!”
Kylie cried and told Garuna what had happened after we had fallen.
“An Antiresistance monster… For such a thing to exist here…!”
“Onee-chan, help! I can’t heal poison…”
“What’re you saying?! You’re the only one that can save Aruto right now! Even if I head there, I won’t make it in time! You should help Aruto!”
“You’ve gotta help him,” Garuna said, and Kylie, saying it was impossible, shook her head.
“It’s impossible! I’m… already…”
“Don’t give up!”
Garuna’s shouting over the line shocked Kylie.
“Aruto-kun wouldn’t give up in this condition. Even if you were poisoned, he wouldn’t hesitate to save you! …Are you going to abandon someone like that?!”
“It’s alright. I’ll lend a hand, too!”
“…Alright. I got it… Let’s do it!”
Wiping away her tears, Kylie stood up, looking at me, who was still in pain, seeming to have made up her mind.
“Alright, see if you can find anything that might help in the surroundings.”
Kylie nodded at Garuna’s instructions and began to search the area.
Maybe there was a way to save me…
She searched the area with that expectation and heard the sound of water droplets faintly falling.
She immediately listened carefully and located where the droplets were falling.
Having found the location, Kylie ran up to it, and in front of her was a small pool of water.
“This is… Onee-chan, there’s a small pool of water that formed from water droplets!”
“A pool of water…? Kylie, use your condition bracelet to check it out!”
As Garuna told her to, she examined the pool of water in front of her.
Then, a screen appeared.
On it was the name of the pool of water.
The true identity of this pool of water.
“Concealed Water…? Onee-chan, there’s Concealed Water here!”
“Concealed Water…?! Kylie, if you have that, you can save Aruto-kun!”
Kylie stood up, went up to me, carried me, and brought me to the pool of Concealed Water.
When we got to the pool of water, she slowly laid me down.
Then, with both hands, she scooped up a small amount of Concealed Water.
She then brought them towards my mouth.
“Aruto, here’s Concealed Water! Drink up!”
Kylie tried to get me to drink the Concealed Water, but I couldn’t maintain consciousness, and I was unable to move my mouth on my own.
I tried to open my mouth but could only cry out in pain.
“If it’s like this…!”
Aruto couldn’t drink it like this…
Thinking this, Kylie put the Concealed Water into her mouth, locked her lips with mine, and poured the Concealed Water into my mouth.
The Concealed Water flowed down my throat, and I gulped it down.
A few minutes later, the suffering went away, and I passed out…
“Aruto…?! He’s lost consciousness, huh…”
Surprised that I had fainted, she put our lips apart, and was relieved that I had only fainted and nothing more.
“Onee-chan, it seems that the Concealed Water worked.
“Phew. I’m glad to hear that. Get Aruto-kun to a safe area and rest.”
“Uh-huh. Will do.”
With a tired sigh, Kylie was about to cut off the transmission, but…
“Good job. You worked hard. And thank you for saving Aruto-kun.”
Over the line, Garuna was probably smiling…
Thinking this, Kylie giggled, said, “you’re welcome,” then hung up…
Kylie, having hung up, breathed out lightly and looked at me, who was snoring peacefully.
She smiled and patted my forehead, then slowly carried me to a safe area.
After confirming that the area was totally safe, she slowly laid me down and sat down on the spot as well.
“…for someone else, huh… Even a thief like me could… I guess I can change, too…”
Looking down, Kylie recalled the past.
As Garuna Schilling’s younger sister, she was often compared to her as a child.
Being compared to Garuna, who could do anything, no matter how hard she tried, she was never appreciated.
It was because she was told that she was expected to be able to do those things.
While if Garuna worked hard, she was appreciated…
The lack of appreciation Kylie received gradually created a rift between her and Garuna.
Kylie was jealous of Garuna and hated her.
But there was one person who appreciated Kylie.
That person was Garuna.
But when Garuna praised her, Kylie felt like she was being made fun of, and filled with anger, she would hit Garuna on the cheek.
Garuna was confused as to why she was suddenly hit.
With tears in her eyes, Kylie let out all the feelings she had been keeping in her heart.
“You don’t even know how hard I work… so don’t talk to me as if you do!”
“I am Kylie Schilling! I’m not you, Onee-chan! Why do I have to be compared to you?! Even I… work hard!”
As she let out the thoughts she’d been holding in for a long time, she burst into tears.
“Why don’t people… view me as myself?! Why does everyone… view me as nothing but Garuna Schilling’s sister?!”
Kylie continued shouting in despair.
Garuna gently embraced her.
“I’m sorry, Kylie. I’m sorry for causing you so much pain… But, I know how hard you work. After all, you work harder than me!”
“It’s just me right now, but… there’ll definitely be people who appreciate the effort you put in. I can guarantee you. You’re not just my sister; you’re your own person.”
“Onee-chan… I’m sorry…! I’m sorry for hitting you…!”
Kylie hugged Garuna back tightly and broke down in tears, letting out all the sorrow she had been holding in…
She continued to cry, and Garuna, with a gentle expression on her face, stroked her head.
From that day on, Kylie vowed to work even harder to surpass Garuna.
As she reminisced about her childhood, Kylie laid down on the spot.
Then, she rested her head on my right arm as I slept next to her.
“Onee-chan… I’ve finally found someone who appreciates me.”
My first crush…
Thinking of this, Kylie gently drifted off to sleep.
