TLN: Sponsored Chapter!!
This one is a short chapter, so I am releasing one more chapter. Because it wouldn’t be fair that a sponsored chapter ends up being shorter than your regular one!
The objective is the capital of Rozes, Horun.
In this journey too, we are travelling in Fuji-yan’s Flying Ship.
It is because Fuji-yan plans on receiving the business permit from Princess Sofia.
I thought the trip would be lighthearted like the previous time though…
“Everyone, I will be accompanying you all in this time’s journey. Please take care of me.”
The one smiling elegantly is the daughter of Makkaren’s feudal lord, Lady Christiana.
Is the one behind her her personal maid?
Also, there’s a female warrior that’s most likely her bodyguard.
(Fuji-yan, why is Christiana-san here?) (Makoto)
(She said she was coming no matter what and didn’t listen-desu zo) (Fujiwara)
We were talking in whispers.
“Christana-sama, don’t you have work to do?” (Nina)
Nina-san deals with her with a frown.
“Yes, I have left it to my subordinates. Greeting royalty is also the job of land nobles.” (Chris)
Christiana-san didn’t break her expression.
“I feel pity for the subordinate that got the job pushed on them.” (Nina)
“There’s no problem. By the way, where’s my room?” (Chris)
“Who knows. There might not be an open room.” (Nina)
“Oh my. Then, I don’t mind sharing the room with Fujiwara-sama.” (Chris)
I feel an ominous air.
I glance at my side.
Fuji-yan was also looking at me.
(Sorry, I can’t help you out here.) (Makoto)
I whisper to him in my mind.
I felt sorry for my good friend that had a truly sad expression.
After dinner, on top of the Flying Ship at night.
I continue training my water magic below the light of the moon.
It would have been nice to have a drink with Fuji-yan under the moonlight like last time, but it seems like Fuji-yan has been caught by Christiana-san or Nina-san.
Or maybe both.
“Popular men have it rough.” (Makoto)
I make the birds I created flap around while enjoying the night wind.
Hmm, the closer I get to the capital, the less energetic the Spirits are.
(Makoto, the control of the Holy Gods is stronger in their capital, so the Spirits get proportionally weaker.) (Noah)
Is that so, Noah-sama…
I am a bit uneasy.
I don’t think a monster will appear at the capital though.
It won’t, right?
While I spaced-out looking at the moon and training, Sa-san came over.
“That dinner just now…was awkward, wasn’t it…?” (Aya)
“Aah, yeah…” (Makoto)
Christiana-san was pushing Fuji-yan’s answer about the marriage in the middle of the dinner.
Nina-san snapped at that.
The atmosphere turned terrible in an instant.
They didn’t hide how they hate each other, and the thorny conversations went on.
“Fujiwara-san should just tell her clearly that Nina-san is his girlfriend!” (Aya)
Sa-san seems to be the ally of Nina-san.
She has been learning martial arts from Nina-san lately, so there’s no surprise there.
“Christiana-san seems to have broken up with her previous fiance for Fuji-yan, you know.” (Makoto)
“Hooh…Fujiwara-kun is popular.” (Aya)
Sa-san says with an expression as if unexpected.
Well, we were not popular at all in our high school time after all.
“But that doesn’t matter though. It is not like you have to go out with her because she broke up with her fiance.” (Aya)
That’s true, but…
In Fuji-yan’s case, he has the cheat skill of Galge Player.
Christiana-san falling in love with Fuji-yan after accurately understanding her worries and giving her advice might have been inevitable.
The nobility conflicts about succession sound like they would be tiring after all.
I am seeing the scariness of the Galge Player Skill.
I am glad my Skills are peaceful in that area.
Because it is only changing perspectives and choices showing up!
I would have liked them to be a bit stronger though!
While I was making a complicated expression, Sa-san seems to have thought of something.
“Hey, Takatsuki-kun, could it be that you are bothered by the fact that Fujiwara-kun is popular, and yet, you don’t have a girlfriend?” (Aya)
Eh? Did I have that kind of face?
“No no no, I am not bothered by that at all.” (Makoto)
I seriously am not.
I am stalwart.
Sa-san wraps her arms around mine with a grin.
Is that a habit of Lamias?
Her entangling has gotten more aggressive than her previous self.
“Hey, what are you doing?”
Lucy with a slightly stiff voice appears.
We made too much noise huh.
“Takatsuki-kun said he wanted a girlfriend.” (Aya)
“Eh?!”, Lucy shouts in surprise.
“Sa-san, I didn’t say that.” (Makoto)
“H-Hmm, geez, Makoto. So that’s how it was.” (Lucy)
Lucy shifted her way to the opposite side from Sa-san.
Uhm…hey, are you listening to what I’m saying?
“Sa-san, Lucy, I am in the middle of my magic training.” (Makoto)
“You are saying that in this situation?” (Aya)
“You have flowers in both arms.” (Lucy)
Sa-san’s cool temperature, and Lucy’s high temperature.
Aah, if not for Clear Mind, I would have tapped out a long time ago.
It is dead in the night.
Sandwiched by two cute girls.
Yeah, this is quite the lucky situation for a man.
I had an important thing to tell these two.
It would be better to tell them before arriving to the capital.
It is by no means me trying to change the topic.
“Lucy, Sa-san, I have something important to tell you.” (Makoto)
“What’s the matter?” (Aya)
“About the Goddess…” (Makoto)
I tell Lucy and Sa-san about Noah-sama.
That I will be fighting the world as an Evil God Apostle.
The two listened to me with serious expressions.
“I won’t force you to cooperate with me. But there’s the possibility that it will be dangerous if you continue to stay with me—” (Makoto)
“How stupid, Makoto.” (Lucy)
Lucy cuts off my words as if this was silly.
“We are a party, aren’t we?” (Lucy)
Lucy says with hands on her waist and exhaling through her nose.
“That’s what you were worrying about lately, huh. You should have told me already.” (Lucy)
I wonder why, a different feeling is welling up compared to the time when Fuji-yan told me he would help me out.
“There’s no need to confirm with us every single time. We are your allies, Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)
Sa-san, who is shorter than me, pets my head.
Sometimes, she would treat me like I am younger than her, or more like, a little brother.
Since way before.
And it doesn’t feel bad.
“Thank you… It really takes off from my shoulders.” (Makoto)
In this way, there’s now 3 allies for the Evil God Apostle.
(Oh my, you are one playboy, Makoto.) (Noah)
Please don’t tease me, Noah-sama.
“By the way, we were the first ones you told about being the enemies of the world, right?” (Lucy)
“No, I have already told Fuji-yan.” (Makoto)
Was there a need to get surprised in stereo?
“Aren’t these kinds of things first brought up to your party members?” (Lucy)
“Why is it that I, who has been acquainted with you since middle school, was told later?” (Aya)
The two were displeased.
No, you know, Fuji-yan has a mind reading skill, so I had to tell him first.
The fact that I can’t tell them that is vexing.
“Emily told me that Makoto might like men more than women. You don’t show interest in my attire after all.” (Lucy)
Oi, that’s slandering.
I will sue you.
“…Now that you mention it, at high school, he would always be talking only to Fujiwara-kun at lunch break.” (Aya)
We were talking about the new games coming out!
I intended this to be a serious talk, but the two of them are the same as always.
Next time when I have an important talk, I should tell these two immediately without worrying about it.
That’s how I felt after this.
