Confession: Sakuna Memoir could view the memories of anyone she killed with her Core Implosion. The terrorist organization Inverse Moon wanted to use her power in order to find the location of the Dark Core.

Dark Cores were special-grade Divine Instruments that provided infinite mana and vitality to the people. Though everyone knew about the existence and effects of their nation’s core, most ordinary people never saw it. That was by design. Information on these devices was highly classified, and every country kept the location, shape, and other details about their respective cores under wraps. Incidentally, you had to earn the gift of infinite recovery through a ritual in which you bequeathed your blood to the Dark Core, but this wasn’t performed before the actual device. Instead, you would pour your blood into one of the many Dark Springs, which would then automatically transport it to the Core. Consequently, not even officials who specialized in performing those rituals knew where the Dark Core was.

These were the circumstances behind Sakuna’s deeds; the reason why she had been wandering about every night, assassinating government officials. Yet she’d gotten nothing to show for it.

Even Chancellor Armand Gandesblood hadn’t been privy to the Dark Core’s location. Killing the Empress would be the surest way of uncovering it, but Sakuna didn’t have the power to take on the Thunderbolt. Which is why Inverse Moon’s current instructions were to slay the Crimson Lords and gather intel.

All of Sakuna’s targets up to then had been civil officials, easy to deal with. But now Inverse Moon was speculating that it was the military officials who actually had access to this information.

“Thank goodness… That was lucky… right?” Sakuna whispered, looking up at the stars.

She hadn’t been able to bring herself to kill Terakomari Gandesblood. How could she ever murder someone nice enough to call her a friend?

Sakuna had felt immensely relieved once she lost the opportunity to carry out the dark deed when Villhaze appeared. At the very least, she could put that off for another day.

Still… She didn’t feel she had the strength to take down Komari.

How powerful was she, really? Sakuna didn’t doubt her like Flöte Mascarail did, but it was true that she knew little about the girl’s prowess in combat. She should have investigated Komari when she’d killed Armand Gandesblood, but it was already too late for regrets.

Sakuna sighed.

What was she even doing? Holding a title beyond her abilities, even killing against her convictions. What was the point of living like this? She chastised herself and then went back to her room.

The wind blew. Sakuna closed her eyes on reflex.

When next she opened them, she saw that a window was open, despite the fact that she had no memories of moving it. The curtain swayed, projecting an eerie shadow across the interior.

Why…? Something felt off. As soon as she stepped foot inside the Komari-filled room, the Correspondence Crystal on her desk lit up.

Her heart felt like it would give out. But she couldn’t ignore the call.

She poured mana into the gem, and the same grumpy voice as always echoed back from it.
