WM – Chapter 139: Takatsuki Makoto speaks with the Goddesses

Sponsored Chapter


“…Uh, Noah-sama, and…Eir-sama? What are you doing?” (Makoto)

Eir-sama was tied with ropes and was hung up, swaying around.

Noah-san had her lips pursed. 

She had a whip on her hand.

(What’s going on here…?) (Makoto)

“Don’t you think Noah is cruel?” (Eir)

“You! Don’t joke around! Makoto! We have been deceived!” (Noah)

(Deceived?) (Makoto)

Noah-sama shouts and whips Eir-sama. 

It doesn’t look that painful.

“Ouch~☆. Noah, no to violence~.” (Eir)

“Shut up! Hey, Makoto, her saying ‘the Water Country will perish’ was a complete lie!” (Noah)

“Aah…” (Makoto)

So that’s what it was. 

“Aah, you say… Makoto, aren’t you surprised?” (Noah)

Noah-sama directs a dumbstruck face at me.

I look at Eir-sama and say.

“The one that’s actually going to perish is…the Wood Country, isn’t that right, Eir-sama?” (Makoto)

When I said this, her joking face until now changed into a grin, an impish expression. 

“Heeh…when did you notice, Mako-kun?” (Eir)

“Uhm, I am sorry for saying this while you are making a dramatic face and all, but with that appearance you have right now, it is more of a gag.” (Makoto)

“Oh?” (Eir)

Eir-sama’s body is currently tied up with rope. 

The rope was digging into her usual comfortable dress-like one piece.

The curves of Eir-sama’s body that are normally hidden by her clothes were being shown.

Her well-shaped breasts, her defined waist; that femenine figure of hers was being displayed.

Those outstanding proportions had no faults at all.

(As expected of the Water Goddess-sama.) (Makoto)

I’m impressed.

“Makoto~?” (Noah)

Noah-sama’s face closed in on me.

“W-Woah, I didn’t say anything, Noah-sama!” (Makoto)

“You were looking!” (Noah)

Well, she is right in front of me after all.

“Eir! Isn’t it about time you get down already?!” (Noah)

Saying this, Eir-sama slides off from the ropes.

“And so, Mako-kun, you didn’t believe what I said?” (Eir)

“Hmm, rather than saying I didn’t believe you…the one that’s currently in danger isn’t Rozes, but the Wood Country.” (Makoto)

The Demon Lord’s grave is in the Wood Country. 

The demons are gathering in the Wood Country.

And most of all…

(Prince Leonard and Princess Sofia don’t know about the danger the Water Country is supposed to be in.) (Makoto)

Is that possible? 

The Water Country falling just doesn’t click to me. 

There’s no doubt the Wood Country is the one that’s in the most danger.

Even so…

(Are there only liars within the Goddesses?) (Makoto)

How regrettable.

“Oh my, Mako-kun, you say such cruel things.” (Eir)

“Wait, Makoto! What a thing to say! You included me in that, didn’t you?!” (Noah)

“I didn’t say a single word though.” (Makoto)

My mind is being read, so my privacy is nonexistent.

“So, Eir-sama, why did you lie?” (Makoto)

“Ehehe~, don’t get mad, okay?” (Eir)

Eir-sama made a cute upward glance, and Noah-sama glared at that and spoke.

“The Demon Lord was going to revive in the Wood Country, so she wanted to stop it before it reached the Water Country. And in a way that doesn’t use the military force of the Water Country. Isn’t that right, Eir?” (Noah)

“Now now, you have Leo-kun with you.” (Eir)

Eir-sama didn’t deny it.

It looks like what Noah-sama was right.

“Haah, I see. And so, you used me as the Apostle of Noah-sama.” (Makoto)

“Eir! I only have one believer! What would you do if Makoto fought the Demon Lord and something happened?!” (Noah)

Noah-sama is angry. 

Are you my mother? 

Well, she is kinda like one.

“But, right now, Makoto-kun is the strongest fighting force of the Water Country, so…” (Eir)

““Eh?””

Noah-sama and I look at Eir-sama.

“Makoto is…?” (Noah)

“The strongest fighting force?” (Makoto)

You are lying, right?

“This is not a lie. Cause you know, Leonard-kun not only has pitiful amounts of combat experience, he is also a young Hero. The Water Templars are more on the defensive than the offensive type. The strong ones of the Water Country are mostly adventurers, so they are not exactly affiliated with the Water Country only~.” (Eir)

‘Haah, how troublesome’, Eir-sama says as she shakes her head to the sides.

“Eir…you should raise more fighters.” (Noah)

“Why would I have to do that…?” (Eir)

I am once again reminded just how little fighting power my own country has.

“Eeh~, but I am the Goddess of kindness and peace, you know? I hate barbaric stuff.” (Eir)

She goes ‘kyarun’ and strikes a pose.

(We are going to war, Water Goddess-sama.) (Makoto)

Aren’t you lacking awareness?

“That’s why, Mako-kun, I am counting on you with the Demon Lord, okay☆?” (Eir)

“Eeeh…” (Makoto)

You are taking this too lightly, Eir-sama.

[Will you accept the request of the Water Goddess, Eir?

Yes ←

No 

“Understood, Eir-sama. We will stop the Demon Lord’s revival with the Wood Country’s Hero and their Oracle-san.” (Makoto)

We have the mother of Lucy too, so we should be able to manage somehow.

“Aah, Makoto, accepting so easily.” (Noah)

Noah-sama sighs.

Right, I have to say one thing.

“Eir-sama, the Sacrificial Technique: Offering was overwhelming. Its effect and…the sight of it.” (Makoto)

The memory of cute angels devouring a demon woman resurfaces in my mind.

That was rough…

“Fufufu, right right? Did your lifespan increase?” (Eir)

“Hmm, the Soul Book of Makoto is…here. Let’s see…” (Noah)

My Soul Book was already in Noah-sama’s hands.

Well, fine.

“Oh my, 15 years? It increased 10 years.” (Noah)

“That’s right. I was left with 5 years after using the self-destruction magic. It is thanks to the spell you taught me, Eir-sama… But what’s the logic behind it?” (Makoto)

I only used the spell once, and yet, my lifespan increased 10 years. 

Even though it took me several months to even raise it 1 year when I was slowly accumulating ‘good deeds’.

Eir-sama went ‘pfft’ and directed an impish sidelong glance.

“The [Sacrificial Technique: Offering] that you used, Mako-kun, is a Miracle that offers the soul of the sacrifice to me. 1% of the sacrifice’s soul comes back to you. This time around, that 1% was added as 10 years for you, Mako-kun.” (Eir)

Eir-sama explains to me with a ‘how’s that?!’ face.

“Haah, that’s quite the barbaric method.” (Noah)

Noah-sama crosses her arms and says unamused.

(I see, so the soul of Shuri-san became my lifespan…) (Makoto)

Eating the soul of the target.

Isn’t that already the act of a fiend?

“Tsk tsk tsk, Mako-kun, the Goddess purifies the dirty soul of the demon and makes it the foundation stone of a new world, you know? This is the love of a God -salvation. Do.you.understand?” (Eir)

“Y-Yeah…” (Makoto)

You are really into it, Eir-sama.

Eir-sama, who had gotten close to me by the time I noticed, wrapped her arms around the back of my neck.

“Hey, Mako-kun, not only have you gotten the ability to raise your lifespan, this is your chance to obtain Water Saint Magic by converting to the Water Goddess, you know?” (Eir)

“E-Eir-sama?” (Makoto)

“You idiot!” (Noah)

Noah-sama whips Eir-sama in the head full force.

“Fufu, the whip of Noah, who has her divine power sealed, doesn’t work on me~.” (Eir)

“Kiiih! Just get away from Makoto already!!” (Noah)

Eir-sama slowly separates from me.

Whew, that surprised me.

“Damn it! Once I get my power back, I will kick your ass!” (Noah)

“Oh my, scary scary. A Goddess who could win against a Noah with her powers back would only be someone like Althena-sama. I would run away. Super run away~.” (Eir)

“Hmph, I won’t be losing to Althena either!” (Noah)

Noah-sama is acting tough.

Or more like, those are words I can’t let slip away.

“You are a strong Goddess, Noah-sama?” (Makoto)

““Hm?””

The two Goddesses that were in the middle of their quarrel look over here.

“Of course she is. Noah is far older than me after all.” (Eir)

“Well, I am now the weakest Goddess after being sealed though.” (Noah)

(I see. Noah-sama was a stronger Goddess then.) (Makoto)

So that’s how it was.

Right! Now that I think about it, Noah-sama might know about that.

“Noah-sama, can you teach me the techniques called Spirit Armor and Spirit Summon?” (Makoto)

The techniques of Lucy’s mother.

I would like to learn them.

I didn’t manage to ask Rosalie-san, but when it comes to Spirits, Noah-sama is the best to ask.

“Oh? Aren’t you already using Spirit Armor, Makoto?” (Noah)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

I get confused by the unexpected response of Noah-sama.

“You have clad my dagger with Spirits, making it a magic blade, and defeating monsters with that, right? That’s Spirit Armor. In Rosalie-chan’s case, she is simply cladding it around her own body though.” (Noah)

“Aah, I see.” (Makoto)

Then, if I were to clad my own body with Spirits…

While I was thinking that, Eir-sama retorted.

“With your low Status body, I don’t think you would be able to endure the Spirit Armor~.” (Eir)

“It is infuriating, but it is as Eir says. Makoto, you will probably destroy your body if you try to do as Rosalie-chan does.” (Noah)

“…I see.” (Makoto)

I wanted to try it though.

If two Goddesses are stating it, it is most likely impossible…

“Then, what about Spirit Summoning?” (Makoto)

If I could call Spirits anytime, that would be really convenient!

“About that one, she is calling it Spirit Summoning, but she is simply forcefully dragging out Spirits with Teleport, you know?” (Noah)

“Seriously?” (Makoto)

That was such a forceful move?!

“That’s…impossible for me.” (Makoto)

If I were a mage with the ability to use Teleport, I wouldn’t be suffering to begin with.

(So this one was no good either.) (Makoto)

It saddens me a little bit. 

“Eh? Mako-kun? You want a strong Skill?” (Eir)

Eir-sama hugs me from behind and whispers in my ear.

C-[Clear Mind]! 

“…I won’t be converting, okay?” (Makoto)

“Fufu, I will be waiting.” (Eir)

“Eir!” (Noah)

Noah-sama does a high kick on Eir-sama.

How can she not show her panties with that?

“Ah, right right, Mako-kun, a warning if you want to use the Sacrificial Technique: Offering on a Demon Lord.” (Eir)

“Eir-sama, Noah-sama’s kick is still driven in on your face.” (Makoto)

What’s with this sight?

“Eir, Sacrificial Techniques work on Demon Lords?” (Noah)

And Noah-sama is talking normally!

“In outline, yes. But you won’t be able to use Snipe like the demon of before. Activate the Sacrificial Technique: Offering after you have stabbed it directly, okay? If you don’t do it like that, you might not be able to defeat a Demon Lord.” (Eir)

“Directly, huh…” (Makoto)

In other words, I have to get at a distance close to 1 meter from the Demon Lord.

That sounds rough.

“I will go save the Wood Country then.” (Makoto)

I will do what I can.

I will be leaving most of the work to Rosalie-san.

“Be careful, Makoto.” (Noah)

“Do your best, Mako-kun~☆.” (Eir)

My consciousness grows further away while being seen off by two Goddesses.

(When looking at them like this, they seem like they get along just fine though.) (Makoto)

Titan Gods and Holy Gods.

They are supposed to be opposing Gods.

Is it different for the other Goddesses?

My consciousness fades while I was thinking that.

◇◇

I woke up in the guest room of the village chief.

I see the ceiling of this dim room. 

The ones in the room are me and one other person.

“Hnn…Makoto-niisan…it tickles.” 

At my side, there’s Prince Leonard who seems to be sleep-talking.

I should let him sleep for a bit more.

I use water magic to wash my face, then put on my coat, and pray to Noah-sama.

It is slightly cloudy.

I would have preferred it to be rainy, but it is better than a clear sky.

There’s a decent amount of Spirits.

“Good morning, Lucy, Sa-san.” (Makoto)

I greet the two who woke up before me the same way as usual.

But the two didn’t have their usual expressions.

“Takatsuki-kun, this is bad!” (Aya)

“Aah, geez! Why is Mama always so self-centered!” (Lucy)

The two are agitated.

No, it is not only those two, but the Wind Tree Hero Max-san and the Wood Oracle Flona-san. 

“Ooh! You are up, Water Country’s Hero-dono. Look over here…” (Wolt)

The village chief shows me a piece of paper.

(A note?) (Makoto)

There was something scribbled on the paper that seemed like it would be used to take memos.

[I am going to the Demon Lord’s grave to kick some demon ass, okay?! -by Rosalie.] 

…Oi oi, Rosalie-san…

  3. So Eir-sama did lie to Makoto.
    [ Mako-kun, the Goddess purifies the dirty soul of the demon and makes it the foundation stone of a new world, you know? This is the love of a God -salvation. Do.you.understand?” (Eir) ]
    I wonder what she is saying is the truth. Maybe she can use the soul of the sacrified demon and reincarnates it as a strong human ? Because she really wants Makoto to offer more souls for some unknown reasons ( I don’t think increasing the lifespan of Makoto is her goal).

  4. Thanks for the chapter! And I was right! It was just space magic with a fancy name slapped onto it! Also it seems like our boy won’t be meeting with the wood goddess, was kinda curious on how she was gonna react to Makoto but nevertheless still glad to see eir and Noah still happy and energetic~ also it’s quite a surprise for Makoto to be considered the strongest in the water country, though it feels more correct to say conditional strongest as he needs spirits to be the best but then again maybe one day he’ll find a way to keep spirits with him 24/7~ and next up is the battle with the demon Lord I guess, can’t wait~!

  7. Hm… now that I think about it…
    Wouldn’t Rosalie be likely to let the Demon Lord revive just so she can fight them?
    And then proceed to sleep with them afterwards, regardless of gender.

  8. “The Demon Lord was going to revive in the Water Country, so she wanted to stop it before it reached the Water Country.”
    Should instead be, “The Demon Lord was going to revive in the Wood Country, so she wanted to stop it before it reached the Water Country.”

    Anyways it shows that Eir is a bit manipulative. After the Wood Country gets destroyed, the next would be the Water Country so she lied to use Makoto to preemptively go to the Wood Country and beat the Demon Lord there before it has a chance to go to the Water Country. Well it seems Makoto figured it out on his own beforehand. Of course Noah was understandably pissed that Eir lied in order to use Makoto and that’s why she put her in bondage as a punishment. Well Eir seems to be an Ara Ara Goddess and was totally fine with it especially since she can’t be hurt since Noah’s powers are sealed. I guess this is just a kink for her and one she doesn’t mind showing Makoto. It seems Makoto will now have two goddesses trying to seduce/sexually harass him.

    Well anyways that Sacrificial Offering has some bad return rate. Only 1% of the target’s soul gets converted to lifespan. There needs to be a patch update to fix that <.< RPG Player-san, your help is required. At least Makoto still got 10 years of life from it so now his lifespan has finally had a net positive increase. Also this technique has been confirmed by Eir to work even on a Demon Lord provided you personally stab him with the dagger at close range.

    Gah, Rosalie has decided to go all Leeroy Jenkins. Well that's a bit better than what I thought the note was gonna say. I thought it was gonna say that she decided to go travel at this time instead of facing the Demon Lord since the previous chapter revealed she's pretty flaky and has at times disappeared for a year when just going "for a walk".

    1. It kinda goes to show how bad the normal tax is if 1% is already worth several months of grinding lifespan though.

      I wonder if he can’t somehow do this ritual with Noah instead. It would probably help with her revival.

  9. Makoto should just leave all these conniving goddesses already.

    There is a true God that is far more deserving of his faith, all he would need to do to get his attention is to pray in the following manner:

    “The Fool that doesn’t belong to this era.
    The Mysterious ruler above the gray fog.
    The King of Yellow and black who wields good luck”

    All praise The Fool.

  10. … So what happens if he summons the piranha putti and then can’t sacrifice a monster? Does it backfire on him or what?

    “1% of the sacrifice’s soul comes back to you.” Oh cool, so he’s just absorbing tiny bits of monster soul, nothing to worry about!

    Misunderstandings keep piling up on Makoto’s religious affiliation. He never explained his objectives to Sophia, and now he didn’t clear up the misunderstanding just now with Furi.

  12. Thanks for the chapter! ^^
    If this continues, when Makoto will free Noah, there will be a civil war among the gods with Eir and maybe Naya and Freya siding for her.
    A few possibilities for Lucy’s mother going YOLO:
    1. She crushed the troups but fail to stop/let happen the resurrection of the Demon lord.
    2. They arrived will she is fighting the troups and the ceremony is ongoing.
    3. She got captured (on purpose or not).
    4. It is a prank and she is waiting for them to rush and let her do her heroic entry after they start the fight. x)

  13. ….Yeah she’s strong, but isn’t Rosalie a bit too free-spirited to be dependable? I’d rather take Takatsuki, who’s apparently the strongest force of the Water Country? That’s…a bit sad.
    Not that he’s weak, but he’s quite the glass cannon. If he takes a solid hit from a physically powerful opponent that’s taking him seriously, he’s going down. At the moment, his greatest shield is the fact that he’s very insignificant on paper.

    That aside, don’t these two goddesses actually get along really well? Eir trolls Noah a lot and she gets mad, but they’re generally on pretty good terms.
    So Noah unleashed is a top-grade goddess, huh…? That’s…hmm. Freya is no slouch and Athena is a downright war goddess. And this is the youngest amongst the Old Gods too. Just how did they get usurped to begin with?

  14. So this is where Lucy gets some of her free spirited traits from. Thank goodness for Makoto and us readers that Lucy is the most sane and normal among this family in terms of personality. Although, her not being able to use her monarch magic in the beginning may have humbled her compared to Rosalie who is a combat maniac.

    Lucy is a team player compared to Rosalie too.

    Hopefully there is a demon world arc in the future. What kind of spirits would there be?

  18. Thank you Reigokai for another fantastic chapter!

    My oh my, Takki-dono can pierce through the lies of the Goddesses easily and isn’t taken in by them. Even to ask whether all Goddesses are liars. He isn’t as dense as people think. And Noah-kamisama, don’t get surprised that your only follower saw through the lies of Goddesses, you have trained him as such since first appearing before him!

    Argh! Why can’t our boy Takki-dono get new abilities to compensate for his weak stats! Spirit armour would have been awesome! And Spirit Summoning is just forceful teleportation?! That kind of makes me sad for the spirits.

    I wonder how Takki-dono would act once Noah-kamisama is released? Will he stop her from beating the other Goddesses into pulp or just sit back and let it happen?
