WM – Chapter 73: After the Chaos

-Fuji-yan POV-

Children bawling.

Parents soothing them.

Elderly trembling in uneasiness.

Everyone is being guided by the Water Country Knights to the evacuation area while being encouraged by them.

“It has turned into quite the problem, hasn’t it?” (Chris)

The complexion of Chris-dono isn’t good.

“Are Takatsuki-sama and the others okay? I would like to participate in the subjugations if possible…” (Nina)

“This is the Water Country’s capital, so there should be a lot of capable knights and mages… Let’s believe in them.” (Fujiwara)

Even though I have an isekai cheat, I am powerless in these kinds of situations.

I curse my lack of combat power.

“Nina, you will be a part of the Makkaren household. I won’t allow you to mix with the adventurers and go to dangerous places.” (Chris)

“But putting Takatsuki-sama, Sasaki-sama, and Lucy-sama in danger, while I alone am in a safe place is just…” (Nina)

Chris-dono is worrying for Nina-dono, and Nina-dono who is worried about Takki-dono and the others.

The fact that I understand the both of them makes it more painful.

The evacuation area is filled with uneasiness, sadness, and…Hm?

“Nina-dono, Chris-dono, there’s something I want to talk to you about.” (Fujiwara)

I stop the conversation of the two that has divided opinions.

Within the people that are in fear by the sudden appearance of monsters…there’s one who is trembling in happiness.

…Could that man possibly be…

“Nina-dono, that man over there that is wearing a hat deeply, can you capture him alive?” (Fujiwara)

“Eh?” “Danna-sama? What are you saying?!” 

They of course were surprised.

“I will take full responsibility. We cannot allow him to escape.” (Fujiwara)

“…There must be a reason why, right? Understood.” (Nina)

“Fujiwara-sama, please explain it later, okay?” (Chris)

I’m sorry.

…I have to tell the two of them about the Galge Player Skill one day.

“I will pull him into a secluded place. I count on you for the rest, Nina-dono.” (Fujiwara)

“Yes, leave it to me.” (Nina)

“Fujiwara-sama, Nina, be careful.” (Chris)

Takki-dono is putting his life on the line in an even more dangerous place.

I will do what I can, too.

-Princess Sofia POV-

I returned to the castle, and left the treatment of Leo to the medical team, and ordered the knights to help in rescuing the citizens.

“Uhm, Princess-sama, won’t you rest for a bit…?” 

“No need. I will head to the Temple that is serving as a shelter, and check the state of the people. Mother and father are safe, right?” (Sofia)

“Yes! His Majesty and the Queen have taken refuge in a safe place.” 

“Good. I will go change.” (Sofia)

“I will help.” 

“No need. Wait there.” (Sofia)

After ordering this to my escort, I closed the door to my room.

“…Fuuuh.” (Sofia)

I take a breath, and deactivate [Cold Heart].

The Cold Heart Skill helps me keep my mind composed at all times.

Its detrimental point is that it makes my expression look cold.

“~~!” 

My emotions that were calm until now welled up all at once.

I put both of my hands on my face.

Hot.

I walk to the front of the mirror, and look at my face.

“How can this be…” (Sofia)

A beet red face was reflected there.

Is this the face of the Ice Sculpture Princess? 

“Takatsuki Makoto…” (Sofia)

Just calling that name made my body tremble.

I hold my body with both of my hands.

It is not cold, it is the contrary.

“That…synchronization thing…” (Sofia)

Holding the hand of a princess without any reserve, and entering me.

My body and my heart.

“…”

I remembered.

It was as if my back was being penetrated…that sensation.

It was as if I was being embraced by that man…

“How vulgar!” (Sofia)

Me, the Oracle that serves the Goddess Eir-sama!

Even though this body that has been offered to the Gods has not been dirtied in any capacity! 

The smiling face of Takatsuki Makoto that surfaces in my mind is not going away.

Leo had been cornered.

The knights and adventurers were in fear. 

I thought we were already done for.

The capital of Horun…would be trampled down by a single Giant.

I was in despair.

—I will finish it with the next one. I am going full power.

In that despairing situation, he spoke with a cool tone as if he were having a casual talk.

—It is thanks to Princess Sofia.

That face when he smiled at me…

“This is not the time for that, Sofia!” (Sofia)

I once again activate the Skill [Cold Heart] and return to my previous expression.

I quickly change and exit the room.

I look at my uneasy subordinates.

“We are heading to the city. The ones who can move, come together with us. But make sure not to push the injured.” (Sofia)

“““Yes!”””

Let’s forget it for now.

Right now…I am the symbol of peace for the Water Country.

I must keep a calm and cold mind.

◇◇

-Takatsuki Makoto POV-

Looks like all the monsters in the city have been defeated. We didn’t encounter any monsters on our way back.

We returned to the inn, and had Sa-san and Lucy rest in our room at the inn.

I headed to the Adventurer Guild, and reported about the clown guy and the mysterious voice.

“The Princess has ordered the investigation of the people involved with the circus troupe. Thank you for the information.” 

“…About that mysterious voice…I can’t really say anything about that…” 

The staff member of the guild listened seriously to the talk about the clown.

But the talk about the mysterious voice, it seemed like they didn’t know what to do with that.

Well, there’s the chance that I was just hearing things after all.

After that, I walked around the city, but seeing the knights guiding the citizens, there didn’t seem to be any work as an adventurer, so I returned to the inn.

As for Fuji-yan, it seems like he had something important to deal with, was the message that Nina-san left to me.

That he would be busy for a few days, so to wait in the inn.

I gave him my okay, and decided to rest on that day.

◇◇

That night, I went to sleep…

And was standing in the space of the Goddess.

“Noah-sama?” (Makoto)

I looked around, and Noah-sama appeared with a gleeful smile.

“Hello, Makoto. Good work today.” (Noah)

“Noah-sama, you helped me out greatly today in the fight with the Giant.” (Makoto)

I lower to my knees and give my thanks.

That hint helped out a lot.

Without that, we wouldn’t have been able to defeat the Giant.

“Well, I think you would have been able to find a solution on your own though, Makoto. In that scenario, Aya-chan would have probably died at least once, I think.” (Noah)

“……” 

Shivers run down my spine.

Thinking about it again, the fight of today was like walking on a tightrope.

We were saved by the fact that there was a powerful water magic skill holder.

“Not really. The Water Country has a lot of water related skills, and Leonard-kun has the Supreme Water Magic, so you could have synchronized with him.” (Noah)

“Yeah, there was that hand too.” (Makoto)

But the Prince was fighting the Giant.

It was impossible to use synchronization in that situation.

“By the way, that child-like voice that sounded before the Taboo Giant appeared, what was that?” (Makoto)

Noah-sama might know about it.

“Aah, that? That was the voice of the person you call the Great Demon Lord.” (Noah)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

Noah-sama nonchalantly speaks out a shocking statement.

“The Great Demon Lord has revived?!” (Makoto)

“No, they don’t. That voice was just a residual will. A past log.” (Noah)

“…Okay?” (Makoto)

I don’t understand well.

It looked like it was doing conversation though.

“You don’t need to worry about it. Anyways, the revival of the Great Demon Lord will be happening. In 1 year more, I think.” (Noah)

“…You are cascading important information as if nothing.” (Makoto)

My head can’t keep up.

“Well, you don’t need to worry about that, Makoto. I will give you the information you need, when you need it.” (Noah)

“I feel like everything is on the palm of your hand, Noah-sama.” (Makoto)

Is this okay?

Well, I am the Apostle of Noah-sama, so it should be okay.

“We godkin cannot interfere directly with the mortals. That’s why we use Apostles, Oracles, and a variety of other things. It is not only me.” (Noah)

‘See?’, Noah-sama says in a cute manner.

What she is saying isn’t that cute though.

In Noah-sama’s case, it would be as if I am the only pawn in her chess board.

Sounds pretty impossible of a game.

“Wouldn’t you be at least worth being a knight though?” (Noah)

“Please deny the part about being impossible.” (Makoto)

Well, being told I am not a pawn but a knight made me a bit happy. There must be something wrong with me.

“You call yourself a chess piece, Makoto, but in reality, you don’t listen to me at all though.” (Noah)

“Really?” (Makoto)

But Noah-sama, you immediately say things like ‘abandon your comrades’. There’s no way I can do that.

“…You know, normally, the Apostles of Gods would listen to their Gods more. When I tell you to run away, it is because I put your life above all else after all.” (Noah)

“Well, please give instructions where my comrades can be saved as well.” (Makoto)

“Why are you even telling your God how to give out instructions…?” (Noah)

Noah-sama made a face of amazement.

Did I say something weird? I am, huh.

“Now then, leaving that aside, you did really well today!” (Noah)

“Really? I feel like there were a lot of things I have to reflect on though.” (Makoto)

A situation where I couldn’t use Spirit Magic and my teammates Lucy and Sa-san couldn’t fight.

Moreover, we couldn’t just run.

I was naive in my predictions.

I have to rethink my strategies.

“Not that.” (Noah)

“?”

“The one about getting along better with the Oracle.” (Noah)

“…We don’t get along though?” (Makoto)

I do think that I get along better with Prince Leonard. But his sister, I wonder.

After defeating the Taboo Giant, she immediately went somewhere else.

I know that she must take command as the Princess though.

“Haaah…” (Noah)

Noah-sama made a gesture as if saying ‘good grief’.

“What’s the matter?” (Makoto)

“This is why dense guys are just…” (Noah)

“Did you say something?” (Makoto)

“This is why I don’t like dense guys.” (Noah)

“…”

She said it twice.

Must have been important.

I am not a dense guy…right?

I am consulting Fuji-yan in regards to Lucy and Sa-san after all.

“I will be doing my best in getting along with Princess Sofia. Also, I will be training even more and get stronger, okay?” (Makoto)

So that I can deal with situations like the one of before.

“How diligent. Then, this super kind Goddess-sama will give you a most useful hint.” (Noah)

Noah-sama patted my head with a big smile.

She seems to be in a good mood.

“Makoto, you are using [Clear Mind] when using Spirit Magic, right?” (Noah)

“Yeah, I am. Not only when using magic, but always though.” (Makoto)

“When using Spirit Magic, try restraining the use of your [Clear Mind].” (Noah)

“Why?” (Makoto)

A mind stabilizing Skill like Clear Mind is helpful in the use of magic.

This is something I was taught in the Water Temple.

I have felt the use of it in actual combat too.

“Spirits are happier when you lay bare your emotions.” (Noah)

“…Really?” (Makoto)

That wasn’t in the books.

“Anyone would have more fun speaking with an amiable person rather than someone who isn’t, right?” (Noah)

“…”

That hurts someone like me with communication problems.

I see. So the Spirit-sans thought I was an unfriendly person, huh.

“Well, just try it. You are still a beginner when it comes to Spirit Magic, Makoto.” (Noah)

“Got it. I will try out a variety of things.” (Makoto)

“Yup yup, do your best.” (Noah)

She pets my head. 

I have gotten used to it lately.

Noah-sama puffed her cheeks.

Oops, she read my mind.

“Now then, it is about time.” (Makoto)

Let’s give my thanks and leave.

“Makoto.” (Noah)

“Yes, what is it?” (Makoto)

—She suddenly kissed my cheek without prior notice.

“Today’s reward.” (Noah)

Noah-sama waved her hand with a bright smile.

“……”

I forgot to breath.

That was a complete surprise attack.

Even when I had Clear Mind on, my heart was banging hard.

This is bad, from all the seductions until now, that was the one that shook my heart the most.

…Let’s just accept it as my reward for working hard.

    1. Could you please fix your format of the page so it’s in the middle of the screen? set the page orientation to ‘justified’ or ‘center’. It’s down right awful to read a page in this orientation, as it always cuts of sentence beginnings in every paragraph.

  1. Thanks for the chapter! And I was right~ or at least kind… that voice was the great demon lord’s! Also, the princess really was cold-hearted due to her skill~ Woo~ Wonder if we’ll hear the spirits talking more now that Makoto will be laying his feelings bare to them? Also wonder what reward he’ll get for saving the capital? The princess’s hand in marriage? Nah too much for only saving the country once…. Maybe a noble title forcefully pushed on to him? A duke? Earl? Count? Or maybe a special title for him only? Who knows~ hopefully we’ll get more development with the princess~

    1. You did indeed call it. Good call!

      As for a reward… hmmm I get the feeling that anything they think he would want as a reward he will refuse. Except maybe one thing. A request for him to become the teacher of Leo-chan. Sort of a forced event which Mumma Noah prompts him to accept.

      And oh yes to more Sofia development! Need more of that. Just imagine Lucy and Sasan’s faces.

  4. Good Job Fuji-yan! Looks like he found the culprit who’s behind this or at least one of them. I swear he could have his own series. I am a bit surprised though that he still hasn’t told Nina and Chris about his Galge Player skill. I thought they already knew about it.

    So the reason why Sofia is how she is is because of her skill, Cold Heart. She seems to think it’s just a skill to keep her mind composed with the demerit of making it look like she has a cold expression but from the looks of it, apart from the cold expression it is a skill that makes the user see things and act in the most logical and well cold-hearted manner. Instead her real personality seems to be more tsun tsun.

    So apparently the Maou is a little girl. Sure. I’m not surprised. Anyways according to Noah, that voice was a recording. Maybe it’s something the bad guys acquired to use as a weapon and hearing the voice is supposed to mutate monsters into Taboo Monsters. Anyways it will be interesting to see Makoto fighting without using Clear Mind. Will he freak out when facing monsters or will his gamer experience and RPG Player skill still keep him calm? Also looks like Noah is pulling ahead of the rest of the harem even though Makoto is so dense that Noah mentions it twice.

    1. Definitely surprised at Fuji-yan. I can only imagine, and frankly don’t want to, how that scene will turn out.

      Yeah that cold heart skill does sound like how you have described. Pretty crazy. Although her focus on her people and dedication to her country still shines through and she seems to have a good heart that focuses on making the best possible future for her people which is commendable.

      Interesting take on the Maou voice, it leads to the idea that there is a shadowy organisation setting things up. If it is like that I wouldn’t be surprised if actually some of the original titans where somehow responsible.

      Well we shall see.

      Noah is feeling the competition closing in! As the one able to see everything she must now how she has to make an action immediately or risk falling by the wayside. But what a way to go about it!

  5. Oh Wow! Oh wow, oh wow!

    So synchronisation is really just, wow! Hoooboy Taki-dono you have stirred the heart of Princess Sofia indeed.

    Speaking of Sofia, no way! She has a crazy uber calm skill just like Taki-dono! Never would have seen that. And now she seems to me like someone who is also socially awkward. This moment of dere has really endeared her to me. How adorable!

    And then Noah. Oh Noah! You are doing one crazy info dump there! So we have a timeframe for stuff, has anyone else been told the date at all? I mean any of the other oracles and such? If not that is crazy info!

    So Taki-dono thinks he isn’t being dense towards Sasan and Lucy, ok fair enough. And truth be told I can’t blame him for not sensing things with Sofia. I mean come on, she has an ice cold face and next to no emotions showing and has kept her distance with him this entire time. Sure we as the audience have seen her reaction and he being the protagonist can judge the situations outcome but within the world what evidence does he have to go on that she is actually interested in him? Which she wasn’t actually interested in him until after this synchronisation when he proved what he could do. In spectacular fashion I may add.

    NB: Sneaky, sneaky, ninja Noah. Striking a critical blow against Makoto. That is not fair!

      1. He already did. While a trap twist is still possible, for now, Prince Leonard is seemingly male. He may still be young, but surely, he felt something when Makoto synchronized with him. Since he hasn’t said anything about it, the feeling of synchronization must be something so subtle that only a feminine perspective finds it significant.

        Liked by 1 person

    1. Someone really needs to explain to him what effects his synchronization has on people. Maybe Lucy can? Anyways, I wonder if this is something that happens with all synchronization, or only his?

    2. The timeline is a bit confusing since a time skip is mentioned in a seemingly inconspicuous line, but the revival of demon king is 3 years after the summoning i think, since Makoto spend 1 year in church, 9 months in Makkaren (if my memory hasn’t failed yet) and a week in Laberintos (does anyone thinks that this city name is a bit lazy? i mean, does the city got it’s name from it’s dungeon or did the dungeon got it’s name from the city?)

      Oh and does anybody get the difference between titan god and the old gods yet? it was said that the first war was between the old generation gods and the new generation gods,Noah then also got involved with another war together with the titan gods. Was i correct or is Titan god just another name for the old generation gods?

      Extra Question:
      In the fight agaisnt griffon, Makoto got severly burned after syncing with Lucy, it was said it was because Makoto and Lucy element isn’t compatible, is there any criteria for an element to be considered “compatible”? I get that ice is compatible with water, but what about a wind element? couldn’t it be also compatible? i mean, Makoto used mist before.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Ah I missed that about the 3 years after summoning. Good catch.

        I believe that Titan gods are just another name for old gods, and Noah got involved in a fight between the Giants and the New gods. So this way, old/Titan god war (Titanomachy) then the Giant war (Gigantomachy).

        I believe that the reason Makoto was burned was clarified not because of bad compatibility but rather because the nature of Lucy’s lineage. Her father was a demon wreathed in flames which came across in the synchronisation

    1. The denseness seem to be a strategy many writers use to keep the romance with any of the female leads from progressing too far so the writer can keep adding new harem member without a lot of interference from the current harem members. Other similar strategies include given the MC an annoying character defect that acts up every time significant romantic progress is about to happen, have the MC be committed to someone unavailable (maybe being in another world or something) and making the MC asexual (I call this the Tenchi strategy).

  14. Even if Princess Sofia continue to use Cold Heart everytime when she talks to Makoto, all accumulated heartbeating moment will release when Cold Heart turns off and it will further boost her delusions of Makato as her Prince in White Horse converting to Love.

    Though, Cold Heart turned on, but later on, her pantsu will fall off. Another disadvantage i think…
    So Makoto was having an unofficial 3 Harem girls

    It’s not good to be over-reliant on your focusing skill. You might have trouble the moment you drop it, not to mention the emotional interaction thing.
