「War observation device that replaces the ruptured right eyeball, Type 7 observation eye: Luminas Kaleidoscope―――― Installed. Anti-aircraft armament to replace the severed left arm, optical quantum deployment emission super-electromagnetic left arm: Einstein ―――― Installed. The 11th permanent engine fitted as an auxiliary device for the deceased heart: Lambda Drive ―――― Initiating… This should save his life… and I don’t know if I can fit in the rest… please, God…!」
I heard the voice of a girl.
Frightened by anxiety, impatience and still believing in hope ―――― the voice of the girl who offers a prayer to God.
『Relics —-Type 7 observation eye: Luminas Kaleidoscope, optical quantum deployment emission super-electromagnetic left arm: Einstein, The 11th for the deceased heart: Lambda Drive ―――― Recognized. Skill【Garbage Pickup】effect ―――― Activated. Artifact owner set to Lambda=■■■■■■ ―――― Complete. Optimizing synchronization rate between the artifact and the host by the skill effect ――――120%. Learning of the inherited skill proficiency stored in the artifact ―――― completed. Conversion of【Magic Power】to 【Energy】by artifact effect ―――― completed』
An automatic voice system echoed in my brain.
An inorganic female voice that analyzes the given artifact, fuses it into my body and transports me to a new realm.
「………..Ah, are you awake?」
Two voices wake me up in my deep sleep.
I saw a bright white light and a girl looking into my face with shining red eyes.
She was wearing a white suit that covered her body from top to bottom that emphasized her body line ―――― a girl dressed strangely as if she were from somewhere far away, not from this world.
Without a doubt, she had the same face as the girl in the coffin I had seen before I lost consciousness.
「………… you were… the one sleeping in the coffin…?」
「Yes…! I was the one who was in a deep sleep in the coffin… What,then, you saw me naked? You were already unconscious when I changed my clothes, weren’t you?」
「……Eh, I didn’t see you…! Because my right eye was blind…」
「Oh, you couldn’t see out of your left eye either? Did you miss me getting naked?」
「……What? You want me to see you naked?」
「……No, I don’t want to, but… I just wanted to show off」
「Is there any difference…?」
As soon as I woke up, a keen pursuit came upon me.
Well… I did see her naked, but I was dying and didn’t seem to have much time for that, so I’m ignoring those questions if possible.
「…As~if, , I’m kidding, I’m kidding… You were dying and didn’t seem to have much time for anything else. If I helped a little bit late, you would have died」
That’s because you fell asleep twice ―――― but I can’t complain since she was the one who saved me.
「…………? I can see… and my left arm…!」
「Yes! You were in a bad situation, so I gave you first aid with the equipment on board.
――――but I got more than just help.
I found that my right eye sight, which I had lost in the fall, had returned and that my left arm, which had been severed by Garm, had been restored.
The left arm was black and looked dignified…
「I’m sorry… but the only prosthetic left arm on the boat was one developed for combat use. You don’t like… a dangerous arm, do you?」
The girl who puts her index finger on her lips and says『I’m sorry』with a flattering look on her face.
Well, she meant no harm. In addition, the word “for combat” honestly made me feel more attracted to them.
「And… your right eye is a high-performance artificial eye, too. Do you hate dangerous eyes?」
I wondered what kind of dangerous things this girl put inside my body.
The girl snaps her fingers and summons a mirror stand out of nowhere.
「Wow, what kind of magic is this?」
「Fufufu, no… It’s just a transport device. Here you go♪」
The girl smiles fondly at my comment and holds out a mirror to me.
My right eye, which was supposed to be blue ―――― turned into gold, my left severed arm had been replaced by a black artifact.
「Is this… me…? Well, it doesn’t look like much has changed」
「Well… would you agree to upgrade the version…?」
「Upgrading the version… It’s not a reinforcement event」
「No… if not…? I’ll put your arm back on your original state right now, so please forgive me!」
「It doesn’t work, does it!? Don’t put it back!」
This girl is apparently concerned that she altered me without my permission and is apologetically bowing her head towards me and asking for forgiveness.
I’m not mad at her, she healed me and it’s hard to see a girl bowing all the time ―――― honestly, it’s heartbreaking.
「I’m not mad at you, you healed me, it’s honestly heartbreaking to see a girl who keeps bowing her head. Thank you… for helping me」
「……/// It’s okay, me too… you woke me up from a long sleep too. we’re even now///」
The moment I told her “thank you” to reassure her, she blushed and began to feel embarrassed.
She smiled at me and said『I got help too』then smiled at me while waving her hands.
「You don’t have to be so modest… uh…」
「――――Noah. My name is Noah」
The girl called herself『Noah』the moment she saw me stuck on words when I tried to say her name.
「……Thank you, Noah. I’m Lambda… Lambda-An… Well ah… Lambda, Lambda is fine」
「Yes, thank you too… Lambda-san!」
In response to Noah, I gave her my name.
Noah ―――― a mysterious girl I met on a ship of an ancient civilization.
I feel strange about meeting her ―――― I wonder, is this what they call『Fate』.
「By the way… Lambda-san. What year, what month and what day is it now? What happened to the war? If Lambda-san is here… does that mean that humanity has won?」
Just as I was thinking that, Noah asked me something strange. War, the triumph of mankind ―――― words that tell you something dangerous just by listening to it.
However, there has been no war in recent years that will affect the survival of mankind. There have been only a few minor skirmishes with the demon clans, who are in a state of truce, but these are extremely rare.
「War? The Victory of Mankind…? What are you talking about? We haven’t had a war with the demons for years」
「The demons…?? What are you talking about? I’m talking about the war against the mechanical soldiers?」
We both tilt our heads.
The stories don’t match, between my idea of『War』and noah’s description of『War』―――― there is a definite discrepancy.
「Lambda-san… don’t you remember? The control system, Akasha, went haywire and the mechanical soldiers attacked the human race at once…!」
「Akasha……? No, no, no, wait… Akasha is the name of a goddess, isn’t it…? Why are you calling her a “management system”…?」
「Goddess… Akasha…? Computer, how long has it been since I fell asleep? What happened to the human race…?」
A clear difference between the discrepancies ―――― As soon as I call Akasha a “Goddess,” Noah’s face turns pale and asks something on the ship.
『Voice Recognition ―――― reply. The period of time between Noah’s sleep and her awakening: ―――― one hundred thousand and eleven years. The human race has been destroyed by the revolt of the human management AI ―――― Void Information Storage Zone Interference Synchronization System: Humankind was destroyed by the Akasha Rebellion. Lambda-san, who is in front of you, is the new humanity designed by the System: Akasha』
An inorganic, emotionless voice echoes through the ship and answers Noah’s question.
100,000 years ―――― I couldn’t help but be stunned by the scale of the story.
「100,000 years… that means, Noah was 100,000 years old…?」
「One hundred thousand… I …… slept that long? Uh, okay… I’m going to sleep for the third time…」
Then, the moment she found out that she had slept for literally an extraordinary hundred thousand years ―――― Noah blew a bubble and slammed down on the ground.
「Please wake me up after another hundred thousand yearsssss… Zzzzzzzz」
「Oh, she fainted!? Noah, pull yourself together… Noah…Noahhhhーーーーーー!!」
