WM – Chapter 149: Princess Sofia arrives at the Wood Country

◇Sofia Eir Rozes POV◇

In order to stop the revival of the Demon Lord in Spring Log, a Hero has fallen.

Hearing this report, I was on the verge of fainting.

There’s no way I could stay waiting at the capital, so I went to Spring Log. 

On my way, I got several follow-up reports.

-The revival of the High Demons that had their names resound 1,000 years ago, Setekh and Shuri.

-The Beast King Zagan’s army being in Spring Log.

-The Snake Church pulling the strings from the shadows.

-The Rozes Hero and the Wind Tree Hero being petrified.

(…How can this be… Leonard…Makoto…!) (Sofia)

I felt dizzy as I arrived at the Kanan Village where Leo and Makoto are.

◇◇

“…Takatsuki-kun isn’t waking up.” 

“…Makoto, please wake up.” 

Lucy-san and Aya-san were looking down at one of the petrified people.

There’s a white cloth placed on top of that statue’s face.

(N-No way…!) (Sofia)

※In Rozes, putting a white cloth on top of a person is a sign of a deceased person as well.

I staggered and fell onto the floor. 

Aah…because I told Hero Makoto to go to the Wood Country, this happened…

“Hmm, this is weird. I used the secret technique of the curse dispels, the Breath of the Moon, and yet, he isn’t coming back.” 

The Moon Oracle, Furiae, is slapping the forehead of the statue.

W-What an accursed thing to do! 

“Hey, Fu-chan, that white cloth is just in bad taste, so let’s take it off.” (Aya)

“Really, Aya? But that white cloth is a magic tool, right? Wouldn’t it be better to leave it there?” (Lucy)

I thought Lucy-san and Aya-san were crying their eyes out, but they are more normal than I thought.

I nervously approach those three.

“Ooi, Furi-chan, one more petrified person. Can I ask you to undo this one too?” 

“Aah, geez! Such a pain! There you go, it has been dispelled.” (Furiae)

(Eh?) (Sofia)

Just by touching the petrified person, the Moon Oracle managed to dispel the petrification curse.

“O-Ooh…just what in the world happened…?” 

The elf that woke up from his petrification touched his body in wonder.

“I will watch your state for a while, so sleep at a bed around here for a whole day, okay? If there’s no aftereffects, you can be discharged!” (Furiae)

The Moon Oracle efficiently gives instructions to the cursed patient.

“There’s no room for me to do anything… She is truly impressive.” 

I turned to my side where the voice came from, and there was a familiar face there.

“Flona-san.” (Sofia)

“Thanks for visiting despite the long travel, Princess Sofia. We haven’t seen each other since the graduation ceremony in the Academy of Highland.” (Flona)

The one smiling there was the Wood Oracle, Flona.

However, there’s fatigue showing in her face.

“Looks like you are quite tired. Are you okay…?” (Sofia)

“The Wood Country was on the verge of falling after all… Compared to the pains of the warriors, what I am dealing with is nothing. I apologize for not being able to welcome you properly, but there’s many injured, so I will be taking my leave now. The Village Chief is over there.” (Flona) 

The Wood Oracle left with quick steps. 

◇◇

I greeted the Kanan Chief, and ordered the Water Templars that can use healing magic to help out with the treatment of the injured.

And then, I once again headed to where the petrified Hero Makoto is at.

“Takatsuki-kun, wake up…” 

Aya-san was riding the statue of Makoto.

“Wait, Aya, wouldn’t it be better to not shake him too much?” (Lucy)

“But this is already the fourth day, Lu-chan!” (Aya)

“Haah, even though I can heal the other petrified people in an instant, why is it that the curse of my Knight isn’t dispelling at all…?” (Furiae)

There were 3 beauties surrounding the petrified Takatsuki Makoo.

This would probably be a scenario that I, as her fiance, should be getting jealous about, but…

(The person himself is a statue…) (Sofia)

I don’t know how to express the feelings in me.

“Oh, Princess Sofia?” (Lucy)

Lucy-san noticed me.

I approached the 3 while feeling nervous.

“Warrior-san, get down from my petrified Knight already. If you shake him too much, he might break.” (Furiae)

“Okay okay.” (Aya)

Aya-san gets down from on top of Hero Makoto.

“Everyone, it looks like this journey was problematic. I am glad to see that you are okay…aside from Hero Makoto.” (Sofia)

I peek at the petrified Takatsuki Makoto.

What kind of terrified expression Makoto had after fighting the demon with the petrification eyes…

“Why is he smiling as if he were having fun? This man…” (Sofia)

The petrified Hero Makoto had a refreshing expression as if he were having a casual talk.

“Hmm, the demon called Setekh that Makoto was talking with said ‘I wanted to talk with you more’.” (Aya)

“Yeah yeah, they seemed like they got along well. That’s what I felt seeing them from afar though.” (Lucy)

Lucy-san and Aya-san said something weird.

“Getting along with a demon, you say… If the Goddess Church were to learn of something like that, he would immediately be interrogated as a heretic.” (Furiae)

The Moon Oracle said annoyed.

She must have experienced it firsthand.

The Moon Oracle was always chased by the Templars of the Sun Country after all.

(I am an Oracle of the Goddess Church though…) (Sofia)

It looks like I am being seen as an ally by her at the very least.

“And so, do you think you can undo the petrification curse of Hero Makoto?” (Sofia)

Judging from their lack of worry, I don’t think it is fatal…

“Hmm, I can tell that the curse is slowly thinning, so I think he will wake up in around a few days more.” (Furiae)

Furiae brushes the lips of the petrified Hero Makoto with her fingers that are like white porcelain.

…All the casual gestures she does have a charm to them.

I am truly glad the Moon Oracle isn’t a love rival…

At that moment, I heard someone running towards us from the back.

“Nee-sama! You came to the Wood Country?!” 

“Leo!” (Sofia)

My little brother ran our way.

I lightly hugged that head of his.

“Good work, Leo. It must have been rough.” (Sofia)

“Nee-sama! I am sorry… Even though I was with Makoto-san…!” (Leo)

“Leo, it is okay…” (Sofia)

He was probably looking after the wounded just like the Wood Oracle.

Leo couldn’t hide his fatigue completely.

“Rest for a bit. Our assistance to the Wood Country will be done by the Water Templars that came with me. I have also arranged a successive unit.” (Sofia)

“O-Okay… Thanks.” (Leo)

Leo left with unsteady steps while watched over by the bodyguards.

(After having Leo rest, I should tell him to return to the capital of Horun. Father and mother were worried too…) (Sofia)

As the King and Queen of the country, they can’t easily leave the capital.

But hearing that the place where Leo is at had a Demon Lord that was about to revive, they got flustered and said: ‘We are moving all our forces and heading to subjugate it!’…

I have to show them that he is okay.

After that, I lived in the Kanan Village for a few days, and Hero Makoto safely woke up.

◇◇

A few days after.

We are currently supposed to be in resting time until Takatsuki Makoto recovers completely, but…

“Uhm…is it okay to not rest?” (Sofia)

I ended up saying this to the Hero of our country, Makoto, who began to train right after he woke up.

There were several thousands of water birds flying around Hero Makoto that were made with water magic.

“I haven’t trained for 1 week, so I am rusty.” (Makoto)

Makoto answers slightly languidly.

 He was turning his head around while looking at his own water magic with crossed arms.

(Is he not satisfied with his own magic…?) (Sofia)

An amount of water magic that could cover the whole Kanan Village.

He borrowed the mana of Spirits, and is using magic.

It is not only mana.

Just how much Proficiency would you need to do something like this?

I could only describe this as a magnificent spectacle.

Even if I were to gather all the mages of Rozes, I don’t think they would be able to replicate this.

“Ooh, Boyfriend-kun, you are working hard there~. Alright, I will join.” 

The Crimson Witch-sama was watching the training of Hero Makoto closeby with a wine bottle in hand.

Judging from her bright red face, I can tell that she is already drunk.

Wait, did she just cast the monarch spell, Phoenix, with one hand and chantless?! 

“Wait, Mama, don’t get in the way of Makoto!” (Lucy)

“Hmm, Lucy, you cut off your concentration really quick. That’s shameful. Learn a bit from Boyfriend-kun.” (Rosalie)

“That’s impossible! Using magic for 5 hours continuously is just impossible!” (Lucy)

(…It is true that it has been several hours since he has begun training. Is he always like this?) (Sofia)

“Aah, when Takatsuki-kun is like this, he will stay like that for a while.” (Aya)

“?!” 

A voice suddenly came from my side, and it was Aya-san.

She is wearing an apron, had her hair tied into a ponytail, holding a frying pan as she came here.

She is apparently the one in charge of making the meals in the party.

“Even though he shouldn’t be on his top condition yet… Suddenly training for such a long time…” (Sofia)

“Eh? Takatsuki-kun’s training normally lasts 12 hours, you know?” (Aya)

“?!” 

That’s just crazy! 

“Also, isn’t it about time?” (Aya)

“My Knight! I told you to rest! You are a patient!” (Furiae)

Furiae dropkicked Hero Makoto.

Eh?! …It was a clean hit, you know. Is that okay?

“Uwaah, that was clean. Even though Takatsuki-kun can evade attacks from the back. He must have taken that on purpose.” (Aya)

“Really, Aya-san?” (Sofia)

“Yeah. Takatsuki-kun has the ability to change the perspective freely and see 360°.” (Aya)

Oh, I didn’t know.

“My Knight! Your training today is done! Rest already!” (Furiae)

The Moon Oracle stands with both arms on her waist and glares at Hero Makoto.

“Eeh~, but it was just getting good…” (Makoto)

“You say that every day! That’s why you don’t recover at all! Even though your stamina and mana are trash level, you always push yourself! Just go to sleep already!” (Furiae)

“Okay… Ah, Princess.” (Makoto)

“What is it?” (Furiae)

“I saw your panties.” (Makoto)

“! Die!” (Furiae)

Hero Makoto got his head kicked full force.

T-That made an incredible sound.

(Well, he brought that on himself…) (Sofia)

“Then, once dinner is ready, I will call you, okay?” (Aya)

Aya-san left.

“Makoto, are you okay…wait, Mama, let me go!” (Lucy)

“You still have energy, so train more~. Here, chant the Saint Spell once again~.” (Rosalie)

“No, I am already tired for today…” (Lucy)

Lucy-san was caught by the Crimson Witch-sama.

I kneeled down towards Hero Makoto who had his eyes going around in circles.

I place a hand on his head.

“[Healing Water].” (Sofia)

This Mid Spell won’t have any effect on his weakened body from the curse, but if it is just recovering his fatigue…

I heard the sleep-talk of Makoto.

“Hnngh…Noah-sama’s skirt really has perfect defense…” (Makoto)

(I wonder why…I feel like it is okay to hit him in the head one more time.) (Sofia)

“Hah! What happened…?” (Makoto)

“It looks like you were having a good dream there.” (Sofia)

Hero Makoto looked over here with surprised eyes.

Kuh! Stop looking at me with those innocent eyes! 

“You must not push yourself.” (Sofia)

“Yeah, but…I am still feeling a bit restless, you see. The battle this time around was pretty close after all.” (Makoto)

His profile looked slightly sad.

“Did something happen?” (Sofia)

“My fighting style revolves around the mana of Spirits, the power of the Goddesses and their sacred treasure, so it is not my own strength… That’s why it is unstable, and there’s times when I can’t use them in crucial moments. It would be great if I could get stronger by leveling up though.” (Makoto)

Hero Makoto says with a sad expression as he looks at his own dagger.

“Hero Makoto…” (Sofia)

“Sorry, it ended up in a gloomy topic.” (Makoto)

Is he…feeling down?

Then, what I should be saying here is…

“A Guardian Knight shouldn’t be looking at the underwear of the Oracle they should be protecting, you know?” (Sofia)

“Ah, yeah…” (Makoto)

My Hero is way too persistent.

It would be better to take it a bit easy. 

He defeated a Demon Lord not too long ago, and yet, he is pushing himself to even tougher training. Just what kind of thinking is that?

“You have cute girlfriends, don’t you? Also…I am your fiance, so…it is okay to rely more on your surroundings.” (Sofia)

Even though I wouldn’t refuse if Makoto were to go on the offensive on me…

Makoto smiled gently at the words I worked the courage to say.

“…Thanks, Sofia. I will rest for a bit.” (Makoto)

He collapses in place and falls asleep just like that.

(Haah…this man…) (Sofia)

He would train until he collapses, and he trains again once he wakes up.

I can tell the struggles Lucy-san and Aya-san must be having adventuring with him.

I waited for him to wake up.

At the time of dinner.

When I returned to the house of the Village Chief, there was a crowd made in front of the house.

“Did something happen?” (Sofia)

“It seems someone has come.” 

Hero Makoto and I were walking together.

Did someone from the Sun Country already arrive?

If that’s the case, they are fast.

Oh no, we should have left without taking our time.

But the one in the middle of the crowd was someone unexpected.

“Ah, it has been a while!” (Makoto)

Hero Makoto raised his hand nonchalantly. 

(T-That person is…) (Sofia)

“Hey there, Spirit User-kun. It seems you have defeated a Demon Lord.” 

The one who smiled boldly was someone with pure white hair and pure white skin…

Her big crimson red eyes were shining like ruby, and even though she is small, her presence is powerful. 

(G-Great Sage-sama?!) (Sofia)

Why is she here in such a remote place?!

  2. Thanks for the chapter! And yay the Great Sage is here~ Hope she’ll get more screen time~ Also I’m guessing she’s here to pick up Makoto, I mean he is the first hero to defeat a demon lord, so there’s no way the sun kingdom would leave that alone~ That or she heard the news and decided to check up on him cause she was worried? Who knows, just happy she’s back! After this would Makoto and friends travel back to the sun kingdom or will they travel to the other kingdoms first? Who knows~ Also wonder if we’ll ever get to revisit the ruins of the Moon Kingdom

  3. Thanks for the chapter~

    Man i can finally open net again.

    And Great Sage-sama shows up again? Just when i started to miss her
    And Makoto, you are feeling happy that she shows up again? Aren’t you tired of her sucking your blood, or perhaps you want her to do it again? XD
    Would be hilarious if Great Sage-sama suddenly just charge into Makoto and bites on his neck

    Again, Thanks for the chapter, Reigokai! Don’t push yourself too much, you can even put upload schedule in half, like if its usually once a day then make it once every two days, if you feels like it. Thanks again, can’t show enough of my gratitude to you!

  4. Nitpick : fairly sure it’s deceased, not diseased. The former means dead and the latter means, well, diseased.

    And Sofia, he was having a casual talk as he was petrified, so…, appropriate? All considered, Makoto really is tolerated a lot isn’t he? Between being an “Evil” God’s Apostle and everything else. And Sofia still isn’t used to the fact that for Makoto, training is resting.

    Shameless Furi, you don’t have Noah’s absolute territory XD. And naturally that’s what Makoto spaced out about.

    And hey, the Great Sage came to visit her lover!

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. it’s unintentional ntr then. well, he does have the advantage of not being charmed on sight by Furi, and she probably really appreciates that. but she and the sun hero really seemed to like each other.

      1. They would have to be lovers first for it to be NTR. It’s closer to a one sided puppy love from Furiae. Sakurai is not responding to it at all other than being her conversation partner out of sheer guilt form his role in the Pope’s scheme to frame the moon oracle as a heretic.

        For the record in this novel, Makoto first thought Lucy was part of another party’s harem, same with Sophia, and now probably Furiae too. I mean look at the novel as whole and look at all the different romances so far. Has there been any simple or one dimensional character that easily fell in love from just words? All the girls that fell for Makoto was due to his consistent actions for them.

  5. Thanks for the Chapter! The Great Sage has shown up for her favorite bite for lunch. Would it have hurt him to keep his mouth shut? What’s the big deal of seeing panties? Furi is pretty sturdy.

  6. Heh Sofia is trying to be all serious and melodramatic about Makoto being petrified yet his party is just screwing around with his statue. Placing a cloth on his face like he’s dead or riding and shaking him. I was actually expecting that they’d start doodling on him at some point.

    “I am truly glad the Moon Oracle isn’t a love rival…” Sofia says. Meanwhile Furi is gently brushing Makoto’s lips with her fingers and showing him her panties.

    Well Sofia at least isn’t super possessive of him. She doesn’t really say anything to Lucy and Sa-san and only very mildly commented on Furi showing him her panties and Noah sexually harassing him with her absolute territory.

    And now the Great Sage has shown up. Probably to check up on her lover. Err I mean probably to invite him back to the Sun Country. Yeah that’s it <.<

  7. Lame. He really hadn’t said a single thing about his exchange with Eir. I hate that, I thought that if Makoto told Sofia what transpired, she can finally be useful for once and be worthy of the harem. I never saw her as worthy of the harem, Makoto must get back for the deception Eir did. Lastly, Sofia needs to pick an allegiance already. What if Makoto didn’t heard what the Demon Lord would say? Eir would just get away then, and she would keep amassing souls to become heroes. Which ultimately would become a hindrance to Makoto’s objective of freeing Noah, that extends to Makoto becoming an enemy of the whole world. Sofia needs to pick a side, her soon to be husband or the bitch goddess who think of humans as ants? Until she did that, she is just a useless character that is there just for the tsundere romance cliche.

    I would like to hear your thoughts on this.

  8. > “The Moon Oracle, Furiae, is slapping the forehead of the statue.”
    I….. I … I.I..I Think, Furi-san is now my favorite among the girls
    Davie504 will surely be happy when he heard of it, the slapping thing…

    > “Aya-san was riding the statue of Makoto.”
    Hahahahahahahahaha……

    > “Furiae brushes the lips of the petrified Hero Makoto with her fingers that are like white porcelain.”
    Author-san really had a time to describe Furiae beauty at any point.
    Im envision her beauty like “Takani Megumi” of Samurai X live action

    > “Furiae dropkicked Hero Makoto.”
    I instantly asked a question to myself, what would be the color of her pantsu is….
    Should be black and laced….

    > Wait, suddenly, in this chapter, Makoto’s being a perv….
    It might be the start that Author-san pushing Makoto to be aggresive to the girls…
    We might be having to received a wonderful fan serviced soon, i also expect Furiae to be included as well…

  9. People are talking about Furi-san flags is disappointing for a few reasons.

    The real flag is with Setekh, who we have confirmation got Takki smiling while they chatted at the end of the battle. New demon lord-level friend in the making. I mean, he’s in essence on the level of a demon lord, apparently.

    Nice to see Furiae properly integrating now though. I thought Sophia already knew that Takki was insane with training, but I guess not.

  11. I just want to rant for a bit here. I was supposed to write this down at the previous chapter but well…

    Anyway, I am starting to have a serious dislike for Makoto and the Gods and pity everyone else.

    Makoto’s Plot Armor is getting way too disappointing for my tastes. He survived a battle where he should’ve “realistically” died. Hell, it’s like chucking a human into a fight where kaijus normally battle and the human miraculously(lol) survives without harm.

    His [Evade] is bullshit, and I won’t be surprised if he dodges lightspeed attacks soon. Even Gaè Bolg wouldn’t be able to kill him because ‘Fuck you, I have [Evade]’ and proceeds to give me the middle finger.

    The Gods are shitty assholes and Noah-sama(lol) is three steps away from becoming a damegami. I want all of them dead.

    The rest of them deserve salvation in the hands of Goetia-kun. Extinction via inceneration seems like a good plan.

    Like

    1. Actually, his [Evade] isn’t that good. After you use the [Evade] skill, there is a slight moment of stiffness that people can exploit (like Geralt in chapter 81), so it is only useful against the first attack of a powerful enemy. Moreover, if Furiae wasn’t here, Makoto wouldn’t have been able to use his [Evade] skill in time against the surprise attack of Shuri. Furthermore, if Makoto didn’t have Noah’s Barrier, the attack of Setekh would have reached him and killed him :
      [Fast!
      Speed on the level of Sa-san or Geralt, or even faster than that!
      The gigantified pitch black claw of Setekh rushes my way aiming to reap off my life.
      E-[Evade]!
      Damn it, I won’t be able to avoid it!
      *Shuan!*
      A dull sound was made as the claw of Setekh was repelled.] (chapter 145)
      I agree that Makoto would have normally died against Demon Lord Bifrons. He needs to borrow power of someone else to solve his problem in every important fight, so a power up that makes him less dependent on spirits is necessary.

    2. You’re mistaking luck and plot armor….. not all luck can be consider plot armor, seeing how weak makoto is it’s no wonder he gets a lot of helps from his friends. Makoto way of fighting is close to suicidal his survival is close to beinng lucky than plot armor

  13. This chapter is so much fun. I’m sad he doesn’t need to synchro with the prince anymore (don’t judge me). Fury chan is falling! Maybe! Who knows. I’m still amused how Makoto is making all these attempts at breaking through Noah’s absolute terror field (skirt version ). The next chapter can’t come fast enough. This is probably my second favorite isekai right now right after mob otome and evil galactic lord.
