"Are you alright?" Haru asked.
"Yeah, I'm alright." Kuroyukihime stood up proudly, but there was a trace of depression on her face. After she had fought against her inner demon, she had become stronger once again, but regretfully that the battle was over when she had woken up.
Zero Fill was something that occurred to a player when they didn't have the courage to fight their trauma. In the end, they couldn't control their avatar and were in a state of sleeping.
Kuroyukihime knew that she was lucky that Haru, Tabane, Fuuko, Sumire, Charlotte or else she along with Yuniko, Taku, and Haruyuki would be decimated by the Yellow King along with his minions.
"What about the Chrome Disaster?" Kuroyukihime asked.
"It's done." Haru made a gesture slitting his neck telling that he had defeated Chrome Disaster.
"That's good." Kuroyukihime nodded and looked at Yuniko who seemed to be talking with the Cherry Rook whose Chrome Disaster had been stripped from his body.
Haru had taken off Chrome Disaster and destroyed it which meant that his quest was over. He only needed for them to return before he started to hack the "brain burst" to level himself up to Level 10.
Yuniko talked for a while before she used "Judgement Blow" to end Cherry Rook's life.
Judgement Blow is a special skill that can only be gained by becoming a Legion Master.
Essentially being a one-hit move, it allows them to forcefully uninstall a "brain burst" from a member of their legion and a former member that left the legion less than a month ago. However, it can only be used at an extremely close range as its range is almost zero.
Haru also had this ability, but he wouldn't ever use it.
Yuniko stood up and bowed her head toward everyone. "Thank you for helping me."
"It's alright, you don't need to worry too much." Sumire patted Yuniko's head. She seemed to be moved by Yuniko's determination to forcefully uninstall "brain burst" from Cherry Rook who was also Yuniko's parent.
Fuuko also tried to comfort Yuniko since she also loved to pamper a cute girl.
The battle was over and everyone was in a happy mood. When they were talking to each other the gloomy stage started to transist into a wood stage that showed a very bright sun which was showing their mood at this moment.
"Lastly, let's check our item bag and delete the Chrome Disaster from the game." Charlotte reminded everyone.
They nodded and checked their item bag to see if there was a Chrome Disaster which was also known as Armor of Catastrophe.
Everyone sighed in relief and it meant that the Chrome Disaster had disappeared.
"Then, let's go back, we have something to tell all of you."
"What do you mean?" Kuroyukihime looked at Sumire.
"It's better to return to the real world first, I'm sure that Chiyu has been waiting for us," Charlotte said.
They nodded and returned to the real world.
Haru didn't do anything, waiting for everyone to log out, and when he saw that everyone had returned. He quickly hacked the "brain burst" and changed his level to Level 10 without trouble. He sighed and felt his stay in this world would be over soon. He didn't expect that he would stay in this world so long, but at the same time, he had learned a lot of things. He was about to log out, but he received a notice from the creator of this game.
Everyone had returned and they looked at Haru, Tabane, Sumire, and Charlotte. Everyone had become friends and they thought that their journey would be very fun in the future until they heard this news.
"We're going to move to the United States in two days."
Everyone was in shock when they heard this news.
Kuroyukihime was startled, but then she looked at Fuuko who had a calm expression.
"Did you know this?"
Fuuko nodded after hearing Kuroyukihime's question. "Yes." She was quite sad, but she knew that they would come back so she didn't need to worry.
Kuroyukihime was uncomfortable, but Chiyu, Taku, Haruyuki, and Yuniko felt even more uncomfortable since they didn't expect Haru, Sumire, Tabane, and Charlotte to move away in two days and they had only told them about this matter very closely.
"You....?!" Yuniko felt complicated.
"Why?" Haruyuki asked.
"There is a professor who has invited us to study there. It is a rare chance so..." Sumire had a helpless expression on her face when she told this lie.
Hearing their reason, they also knew that it was a rare chance to continue their study. They knew that Haru, Sumire, Tabane, and Charlotte were very smart and since they had a chance then they should continue their study. They knew it very well, but their hearts....
"It isn't that we're not going to meet each other again." Tabane smiled and said, "We'll also play in Tokyo from time to time since our parents are living in this town."
They felt better after hearing it.
Haruyuki then looked at Haru with burning eyes. "Then for the last time, Kasugano-kun, can you cook the best feast for us?"
Everyone looked at Haru at this moment since they knew that this guy's food was very amazing.
"Leave it to me."
Haru might have failed to make Haruyuki become slimmer, but he had succeeded in increasing Haruyuki's weight, though it wasn't that much.
After the party, Haru sent back Fuuko as usual. This time, she hugged his waist tightly as if she didn't want to let him go, even when they had arrived right in front of her house.
Haru didn't do anything for a while then he remembered something.
"Right, Fuuko, can you have this?"
Fuuko looked at Haru curiously, but Haru connected a wire on her Neuro Linker and did Direct Wired Connection. She didn't know what he wanted to do, but then she received a question whether she was going to accept an item from him or not.
"What is this?"
Fuuko was confused, but then her eyes opened very wide. She looked at Haru in amazement and asked, "You've cleared the Imperial Palace?" She had asked about that matter before, but they didn't answer her which made her conclude that they had failed, but she didn't expect that they had cleared it without trouble.
"Yeah... but it is useless to me since I'll move soon. So I thought I'd give it to you."
"No, I'm not suitable for this." Fuuko shook her head since she didn't have that much of an intention to become Level 10.
"It's alright. Keep it for now. You can give it to someone that you deem worthy of it later."
Fuuko then nodded and received the Fluctuating Light from him. She hugged him again and stared at his eyes, waiting for him to do something.
Haru kissed her lips for the last time before he returned back since it was quite late.
When Haru returned, everyone had been waiting for him in the living room. Their stomachs were a bit bloated since they had eaten a lot of things earlier.
"Haru, let's open the reward!" Tabane was excited and couldn't wait to open her reward from the Group Chat.
Haru nodded and agreed without hesitation since he was also curious what kind of reward that he would get from this quest.
