next summary of Alicization web chapter 7
Administrator convinced Eugeo to open his mind by pointing out to him that he never received anything in return from his love given to all people around him.
She once again showed him a scene of the past, during his 10th spring, the time he was given a sacred task to chop down Gigas Cedar, at the time, some of the kids at the village square even cried in jealous, and Eugeo was given a real axe to use on the task, he didn't have any dissatisfaction. But when he returned home and told the news to his family, he only got cold shoulders from every members of the family.
Eugeo never get along well with Jink, the guard apprentice, but when he got injured, Eugeo always find a herb to help tending the bruise, but all Jink did in return was only showing Eugeo his new stuff bought using his wage as the guard apprentice, while Eugeo, who gave almost all his wage to the family, wore worn out shoes and eat only the leftover bread. The only single advantage Eugeo ever had over Jink was that he had a good relationship with Alice, the genius and the prettiest girl, but once she was taken away, Jink started to tell Eugeo that he dated a girl.
Administrator also showed him the scene of Tizé and Alice both taken away by other men. Eugeo, defenseless, was told to accept her by chanting "System call, release core protection."
Kirito and Alice reached the 96th floor, which was the headquarter of the elders, before entering, Alice warned Kirito not to kill elder Schuderkin as they need him to release Bercouli. They were shocked by an eerie scene once they entered the room.
There were many chairs protruded off the wall, the elders sat on those chairs, no, they were kept sat on those chairs by several hoops locked them into place. The elders all were bald and had no eyebrows, they stared at the windows in front of them and kept repeating 'system call… system call…', of course, they didn't care about the two intruders. After a while, a bell rang, all elders looked up and opened their mouth. A brown liquid came down into their mouth, it had a sour smell like a food that went bad during a hot summer, but elder didn't mind, their faces were in pleasure.
After the 'feeding' ended, they returned to their windows and continued repeating 'system call…' once again. Seeing the room made Alice recalled the time of her 'Synthsize ceremony', which she was tied on one of those chairs and was tortured for 3 days and nights before she finally gave in, all those time, the only thing she pledged was not to take the memories of those important people from her.
Alice approached one of the elder and drew out her sword and placed it on the position above his heart, Kirito tried to stop her but she told him it was the only mercy they could get. Kirito agreed that it was far beyond losing memory piece, they no longer had personality, the only thing they had left was the human intelligence and it would be no longer possible to return them to normal.
Before Alice proceed to stab the elder, someone came into the room, but as he was busy watching his crystal ball, he didn't notice the two intruders. Alice affirmed Kirito that the man was the elder Schuderkin, Kirito took a peek into his crystal ball and saw a back of a girl and surprised by the presence of the man in front of her. Alice took the chance to approach Schuderkin and threaten to cut his tongue if he started chanting.
Schuderkin didn't scare and kept provoking Alice, before Kirito could stop her, Alice stabbed her sword into Schuderkin's heart, but instead of blood, 2 color smoke came out of the wound as his body explode like a ballon, the elder took the chance to run away upstairs during the confusion.
Eugeo said the command Administrator told him, but before he finished saying it, he recalled that he came here only for Alice, not for himself. The supreme priest then changed her plan by showing him Alice's memory piece, offered him to return it to Alice and rewrote her mind that she would love only him, that he would have a total control over her. That made Eugeo realize that Administrator herself also wanted love, and pointed out to her that a total control isn't love.
The supreme priest gave up the idea of taking Eugeo to her side and prepared to destroy both him and the memory piece. Eugeo used the chance to attack her with the dagger given from Cardinal, he failed but managed to snatch the memory piece away from her.
As Eugeo considered he had no chance against her and prepared to jump off the window to escape and meet up with Kirito, Schuderkin voice came from outside, asking Administrator to open the door.
As soon as the supreme priest let the elder entering the room, Kirito and Alice also appeared from the door way. Even though Eugeo believed that Kirito would certainly save her from falling and make truce with her, but he couldn't imagine how he could convince her, the Knight of the Church to the blood, to turn against the supreme ruler of the Church like this.
