-Eugeo POV (p374)-
This taste of loneliness, I wonder how long I've forgotten it.
Eugeo thought so while he climbed up the stairs.
Ever since the eleventh summer, when Alice was snatched away, Eugeo closed his eyes and ears, lived with nothing but the black great tree as his sole partner. Everyone in the village acted as if talking about that big incident was the taboo itself.
However, Eugeo himself also kept the memory of the incident locked away. His own weakness, his own cowardice he couldn't stand, he sank them under a deep swamp, averted his eyes away from both past and future.
Eugeo knew full well the taste of loneliness. He couldn't do anything on it own, long even before that incident.
But during his eighteenth spring, that guy, who aimlessly appeared in the forest without a single luggage, pulled Eugeo out of the mire he sank himself in. Together they drove away the group of goblins, cut down Gigas Cedar, and he gave Eugeo a goal to aim for once again.
Ever since they left Rulid village, their long journey passed Zakkaria, before reaching the capital, and the time he practiced in the Master Sword Academy, were all with Kirito beside him. All their plans down to the minute details to come to the Axiom Church together, removing all many obstacles, climbing to the very top of the tower, all will be with assistance of that black haired vagabond.
But when it was only last step before they could reach their goal, he loss sight of his partner, at that moment, the taste of loneliness welled up inside his throat.
How much I depend on Kirito until now?
He realized not a single thing had changed ever since he was still striking the infallible tree in the forest.
When Kirito and Alice were thrown out of the tower, Eugeo tried his best to destroy the wall, but he couldn't win against the self-repair ability of the tower wall and had to give up, Eugeo decided to believe in Kirito to be able to save both himself and Alice, and proceed to climb up the tower on his own.
He reached the 90th floor, which was a massive bath hall, in there he met someone else. The first words from that stranger was "Sorry to disappoint, but I'm not a young girl." A naked middle aged guy, whose height was almost two meters and had a very strong built, got up from water to dress up, Eugeo didn't use that chance to attack him.
"Before fighting with you, there is one thing I want to ask."
"……What is it?"
"Hmm, it's that…… The sub-leader…… Fanatio, is dead?"
Your tone is blunt like you're asking for a menu for dinner, isn't she your important subordinate?
Eugeo pushed this thought away as he replied,
"Still alive. Now should be getting treatment…… I think."
The man listened to Eugeo's answer and let out a deep sight of relief, before nodding,
"Is that so. Then I won't kill you as well."
Eugeo then asked him why he only worried about Fanatio, but not other subordinates, such as Alice. His answer was because Fanatio was his pupil, so he was stronger than her. And as he didn't feel he would loss to Eugeo, so he didn't think Eugeo stood a chance against Alice, who he didn't know if he could win against her.
The man introduced himself as "Berculi Synthesis One" and proceed to attack, Eugeo noticed he used an old school sword style and his familiar name.
Eugeo didn't have much chance against Berculi, in the end, he decided to release his Blue Rose Sword and freeze both of them together. Berculi surprised that he would throw his life away in order to take him down. But Eugeo said Berculi's Life will be completely depleted first because of his age, so his maximum Life is much lower than Eugeo's.
Eugeo realized that Berculi was the man of the legend he heard when he was young, and asked if Berculi recognize the Blue Rose Sword. Berculi said he noticed that sword when he killed the white dragon in the cave of Mountain range at the Edge long ago. Eugeo shocked by this fact.
As Eugeo hesitated whether to let Berculi die or not, someone else came into the bath hall.
Berculi called the short, fatty man as "Elder Schuderkin". Schuderkin knew Berculi held back in order to not killing Eugeo and declared him treason, and need to be reprogrammed, before proceeding to chant,
"System call deep freeze integrator unit 001!"
Berculi's body dyed in gray as he turned into a stone statue.
By then, Eugeo also loss his conscious.
