Prologue


First, this version of Hiraheishi wa Kako o Yumemiru, is currently being translated from the Spanish version of the novel, you can see this version here and the illustrations of the novel here.


“Ah, now the world will be saved.”

I thought so. Our heroes will defeat the Demon Lord… In my chest the tip of a silver lance protruded.

– Huh…?

Surprised, I can only articulate it.

Huh? What happened?

I had to say something more intelligent in a moment like this, God should support me right now and allow me to say something more substantial. But, I understand, it can’t be helped. What a disappointment. I could feel a frustration that was simply unbearable. The war with the monsters continued for so many years, many of my friends have lost their lives. My best friend, my lover.

But one day, in our country heroes arrived, a legendary weapon. At that moment I thought it was some kind of fairy tale, I thought that the times ahead were incredibly bright, I was very happy. The belief that we’re going to win began to grow stronger in my heart. The hero, the saint, the great magician, the spiritualist master.

Wouldn’t they be more like some childish dream character?

I thought so, but reality is cruel. They are here but the soldiers die anyway. Merlot or Hiltis or Kelkeyr wouldn’t come back, they won’t come back. But I survived and was able to make it to the end. I went ahead propelled by a feeling of revenge, continued walking forward while vomiting blood and then I saw him.

The hero of the sacred sword has reached the goal of all humanity, it was the decisive moment. Everything was enlightened, the hero, his sword, even the air around them and I thought.

“Ah, now the world will be saved.”

I just can’t believe it.

“How could the enemy kill me at a time like this?”

I’m a soldier from the countries of the coalition fighting demon lord. John Serias, that’s how I died.

Ha ha ha. I can’t even laugh.

It felt like a long dream. All was dark, the world is plunged into darkness, people were dying and demons were having a feast. It was a sad dream, but as soon as I opened my eyes, I knew it wasn’t a dream. It was all real, it was all true. It would be nice to consider that all this is a dream, I would prefer to consider these memories as a sad dream in comparison to everything being real.

I remember it perfectly well, the moment when my body stopped being alive. I’m the last of my friends, I lived fighting and losing friends. There are many people who gave their lives to defend me, and although weak, I fought as if seeking death.

Yes, and it was. Actually, it was. I followed the legendary heroes as they entered the demon lord’s castle, I saw the characters fighting and died for one of their subordinates. Now I don’t understand what I see.

Why am I in my house, which was destroyed by the Demon Lord’s army, and why is it undamaged?
