WM – Chapter 156: Takatsuki Makoto walks through the capital

“How are you feeling, Sa-san?” (Makoto)

Sa-san safely evolved into a Lamia Queen.

By the way, I wasn’t allowed to see the moment of her evolution.

The ones present were Lucy and Nina-san.

Damn it, why?! 

(Haah, Makoto…) (Noah)

(I pity Sofia-chan…) (Eir)

What is it, Goddesses?

“My body might be a bit heavy… I will be sleeping for today…” (Aya)

“Wouldn’t it be better to have a doctor give you a check-up, Sa-san?” (Makoto)

Sa-san is currently in her Lamia form, and she is lying flat on the bed.

Her important lower half is sticking out from the bed though.

“Is…Aya okay?” (Lucy)

“It seems my healing magic has no effect…” (Sofia)

Lucy and Princess Sofia are looking at Sa-san with worry.

“But her complexion is good, and there’s no abnormalities in her mana flow, so from what I can see, there’s no problems. Rather, her physical condition has been enhanced to the level of a dragon.” (Furiae)

According to the diagnosis of Furiae-san, Sa-san has obtained a dragon level body.

“Takki-dono, due to the Evolution, her level 99 has reset to 1. That radical change must have made her body panic. I think it would be best for her to rest.” (Fuji)

“I see… Got it. Just in case, I would like you to find a doctor with tight lips.” (Makoto)

“Takatsuki-sama! There’s no need to worry, we have already done so!” (Nina)

That’s Fuji-yan and Nina-san for ya.

Their consideration is perfect.

“Hey, Aya, do you need something?” (Lucy)

“Hmm, I want to eat something sweet…” (Aya)

“Then, I will peel some fruit for you.” (Lucy)

“Yaay.” (Aya)

Lucy is keeping Sa-san company.

Hmm, doesn’t look like there’s any need for me.

At that moment…

“Sofia-sama, a guest has come!” 

The Guardian Knight Old Man ran in.

“We are busy here, have them leave.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia says straight.

“T-That’s…” 

“Excuse the intrusion, Sofia.” 

The one who cut in the words of the flustered Old Man was a brown skinned woman wearing light clothes like that of a dancer.

However, the accessories and her footwear are visibly extravagant.

At her back there’s two robust warriors that are most likely her bodyguards.

(A noble of Great Keith…?) (Makoto)

The fact that she is calling Princess Sofia without honorifics means that she is not a commoner.

“Dahlia, to think you would suddenly come…” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia responds with a bewildered expression.

I remember the name Dahlia.

The Fire Oracle, Dahlia Sol Great Keith.

(…This person is the Fire Oracle.) (Makoto)

Now that I think about it, she has that same dignified presence like that of Princess Sofia. 

Ah! Sa-san is still in her Lamia form! 

When I check my back with the perspective change, I confirm that Lucy has covered Sa-san’s lower half with a blanket.

Nice!

“Oh my, is the person sleeping there the Warrior-san who will be participating in the Martial Arts Tournament? Also, could you possibly be the fiance of Sofia, the Rozes Hero? I apologize for the rudeness of my Guardian Knight before. Can you please forgive us?” (Dahlia)

I was given an apology with no feeling in it. 

The Guardian Knight of the Fire Oracle…Olga Sol Tariska. 

Her nickname is the Scorching Hero.

The battle junkie Hero that attacked us.

The Fire Oracle and the Fire Hero; they are apparently childhood friends.

The two are beautiful and have an idol-like popularity in the Fire Country.

(She might be the very person who kindled the incident with the Fire Hero…) (Makoto)

Just because she looks good doesn’t mean she is a good person.

I think it would be safer to think that she is a wicked person.

“Nice to meet you, I am Takatsuki Makoto.” (Makoto)

“I am happy to meet you. It may be hotter compared to Rozes, but I hope you enjoy your time here.” (Dahlia)

Saying this, she shook my hand tightly.

(So close.) (Makoto)

But rather than making my heart skip, I felt a chill from my back.

The eyes of the Fire Oracle Dahlia were appraising me as if she were a merchant looking at goods.

I wonder if, in her eyes, I look like gold, or trash.

“Dahlia, get away. If you have business, I will listen.” (Sofia)

“Oh my, I want to talk to Hero Makoto for a bit more though.” (Dahlia)

“No.” (Sofia)

“My, stingy. But it has been a while, so I want to talk with Sofia too.” (Dahlia)

Princess Sofia pulled the hand of the Fire Oracle and led her to a room deep inside.

It seems like the Fire Oracle, Dahlia Sol Great Keith, is royalty. 

In that case, it would be better for royalty to deal with royalty.

(I will let Princess Sofia handle it…) (Makoto)

Lucy is looking after Sa-san.

The Fire Oracle that suddenly intruded on us was taken by Princess Sofia.

Now then, I have nothing in my hands now…is what I thought, but I see someone who was sluggishly trying to go out. 

“Princess? Are you going somewhere?” (Makoto)

“I am just going to take a walk.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san walks in the direction of the door with the black cat on her shoulder.

‘It would be better if you were to be careful of the Moon Oracle’.

The words of Eir-sama resurface in my mind.

The Destiny Goddess, Ira-sama, is cautious of the Moon Oracle. 

I feel like it would be dangerous to let her go alone.

“I will go with you too.” (Makoto)

“Hmm, that’s rare, My Knight. Aah, right. Now that I think about it, you were my Guardian Knight.” (Furiae)

“Going alone is dangerous.” (Makoto)

“Haah, I just have to Charm them or whatever and run away.” (Furiae)

She is acting tough there, but when I followed after her, she didn’t really oppose it.

◇◇

“It is hot.” (Furiae)

“We are in a tropical climate after all.” (Makoto)

“Control Water Spirits. Make it cool.” (Furiae)

“There’s no Water Spirits.” (Makoto)

No matter where I look, there’s not even the shadows of Spirits.

The Fire Country is one rough place.

“~♪” 

Furiae-san is complaining about heat left and right, but her face from the side looks like she is having fun.

She is restlessly looking around the stores of the capital as if curious about everything.

“Wanna buy something?” (Makoto)

I spoke to Furiae-san who was looking with interest at the stands selling clothes.

“Huh?! You want me to wear clothes that show so much skin?! Are you a pervert?!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san looks at me upset.

True, Furiae-san is normally wearing clothes that don’t show much skin. 

But I thought that wearing those kinds of clothes in this country would worsen the heat for her.

There’s a lot of light clothes in the Fire Country. 

The kind of clothing that Lucy would like.

“In the first place, if I were to walk in the streets with that kind of attire, I would end up charming everyone. That would be a terrible thing to do to the women of the Fire Country, right? Got it?” (Furiae)

‘Hmph’, Furiae-san brushes her hair with her hand smuggly. 

Those queen-like gestures are scary fitting for her.

We wandered around for a while after, but she suddenly said ‘I am hungry’.

It certainly is a time to begin feeling hungry. 

When I looked around, I could see stores that are calling for customers for lunch time.

“Let’s go there.” (Furiae)

“Okay.” (Makoto)

Furiae-san and I entered a random eatery. 

After entering the place, we drank soup with lots of spices, and crispy bread.

A sweet drink that tastes like coconut milk came as a set with the food.

I ordered grilled fish for Tsui.

“What a weird taste.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san said this in wonder as she ate as if enjoying it.

But this taste is familiar to me.

“It tastes like curry…this soup.” (Makoto)

“What’s that?” (Furiae)

“A dish from my world. In the country I was from, all children grew up eating it.” (Makoto)

“Heeh, then this must be a nostalgic taste for you.” (Furiae)

It certainly is nostalgic.

Since coming to this country, a whole lot of things have been a pain, but I am happy that the food is delicious.

Let’s bring Sa-san and Fuji-yan here next time.

We enjoyed the food.

“Fuuh, I am a bit sleepy now.” (Furiae)

After we finished eating, Furiae-san placed a hand on her chin and began to nod off.

A short while after, I could hear her going ‘kuuh~’ and falling asleep.

Tsui is curled up at her side, sleeping.

(Is she tired?) (Makoto)

We had her tag along in the leveling up of Sa-san for consecutive days after all.

Thanks, Furiae-san.

I was thinking about letting her sleep for a while, so I decided to wait till she wakes up.

◇◇

Around 30 minutes passed since Furiae-san fell asleep.

“!”

Furiae-san suddenly jolted up.

Her eyes were wide open and the sweat was making her hair stick to her skin.

It is not her usual leisure attitude. Her eyes showed fear like the time when I first met her.

“Princess, what’s the matter?” (Makoto)

“…”

She didn’t answer my question immediately and looked around suspiciously everywhere.

“Lend me your ear.” (Furiae)

She grabbed my head and pulled my face closer to hers.

Then she whispered in my ear.

“My Knight…a lot of Fire Country people are going to die…” (Furiae)

    Damn it, why?! ]
    As usual, Makoto doesn’t have any common sense.

    [“But her complexion is good, and there’s no abnormalities in her mana flow, so from what I can see, there’s no problems. Rather, her physical condition has been enhanced to the level of a dragon.” (Furiae)]
    So she evolved from Dragonair to Dragonite.

    [“Takki-dono, due to the Evolution, her level 99 has reset to 1. That radical change must have made her body panic. I think it would be best for her to rest.” (Fuji)]
    So she can become stronger again. Time to grind level !

    Makoto and Furiae explore the capital. Interest- Wait a minute. Isn’t that a date !?

    [“My Knight…a lot of Fire Country people are going to die…” (Furiae)]
    What did she see ? Is it the Snake Church again ? What will they do ? I doubt using monsters or causing a rebellion will work, so a large scale magic or a man-made disaster could be their next method. Like causing an earthquake, making a volcano erupt, making tornadoes with magic, summoning a meteor, causing a nuclear explosion with magic, etc.

    1. I think volcano, earthquake and meteor will be the most effective. but I can’t see that happening. maybe wildfire? or a non fire element attack will be the most effective.

      I don’t think explosions will be very effective, and I don’t think there is a nuclear concept in this world.

  3. Thanks for the chapter~ and the crisis of the fire kingdom is here~ probably gonna be due to the snake church and Makoto will solve it after Sasaki defeats the fire hero~ wonder what they’re planning this time, maybe explosives? Who knows can’t wait~ also the date with furiae was nice to read~

  4. After all Furi had a connection with Destiny goddess?

    Im thinking this for a while, what if all Goddesses will be put their eyes on Makoto, and after that, Makoto will realize little by little that the real villain would be the top tier god than the goddess? Maybe, Makoto will be fully control the spirits by then for having them agree to cooperate to whooped that god of villain

  5. Did Sofia already know Sa-san is a lamia?

    Well at least it cleared up how levels work for monsters at least. After they evolve at level 99 their level resets.

    So Makoto had a date with Furi.

    Eh just let them all die. They’re assholes so who cares? The fire hero is crazy and will attack people because she feels like it. The fire oracle is probably the one who stirred up the fire hero and then gave an apology that clearly isn’t sincere. Some noble family is holding one of Makoto’s classmates as a slave and they apparently work in blackmail and other shady things and they may be the ones who started the negative rumors about Makoto’s group. What exactly has this country done that makes them deserve to be saved?

    1. We had more or less the same opinion about the lightning hero and his sister, but they changed for better after makoto made a impression on them, even Sofia didn’t started great with makoto, give the fire hero and oracle a chance

      1. ….Did they really though?

        More depth was added with one becoming Vegeta-like and the other acting more cordial as a knight, but…like…it doesn’t change the fact that Janet was actively undermining authority during a monster attack or that Geralt was talking about straight-up murdering people-not to mention the sexual exploitation-out of a personal grudge against someone who was just tangentially related.

        We got to see better sides of them with time, but they didn’t redeem for shit and there’s no reason to think they changed as people.

    2. I mean, the royalty and nobility haven’t done themselves any favors, but let’s not forget this is a country. Furiae said a lot of people would die, not that those offenders specifically would die. Not helping out of spite would likely lead to a lot of innocent lives being lost.
      Then again, maybe I’m biased as an American who sorely wants to believe that people shouldn’t suffer because their leadership is a shitshow.

      Besides that, undercutting the authority of the holy gods by being more competent than their chose heroes is a major part of the objective as Noah’s follower, so helping the country out of a disaster they can’t help themselves out of is technically part of the job.

  6. Firstly, thank you as always for the great work of translating these for us to read them!
    Secondly, so level 99 is max level? Hmmmm, seems to me, that a theory that someone said in the last chapters about levels resest for Makoto might pe true, and after that he can become stronger, like a leveling up of class, due to his RPG skill. Plausible!
    As for the fact that Makoto’s dense… why are we even trying to get it anymore? He went up and beyond everyone’s expectations! He has the density of a BLACK HOLE! Maybe even more!
    For those who read ahead the LN in japanese, is this Furiae dating a thing? Is this a flag? I hope it is… The only three girls I would like to be in Makoto’s harem would be Sa-san (they liked eachother since the former world), Furiae (he’s the only idiot who helped her become free, unlike a certain `friend`) and Noah (he said that he loves the saving of a captive princess like in the Mario games, so I would love for him to make his wish come true).

      I lost my hope after reading that statement.

  12. Thanks for the chapter!

    I’m somewhat religious and this LN so far is pretty relatable for a religious person (at least in my opinion)
    That is, receiving God/Goddess help only and only when it is very urgent, like how Makoto so far getting beaten up by other people but when he’s facing a boss then he became completely overpower xD

    You don’t need to read this next section because its my real story that depicts what i meant

    So it was the very last hour of our group project submission deadline. My group was the last one to submit it because of some problem when we are doing it that makes us need to redo it. And its become an unwritten rule in my country that if you submit a project very late, you’ll get a score deduction. Can even deducted as far as the teacher told us to redo it from zero again. Speaking religiously, i prayed to god that at the very least she accepts our submission, and fortunately she did, though i was pretty sure that we have to redo it again.

    But by the time she checked her log book to note the score of our project, she asked to the class “Hey, are the other group submitted their project already?” which of course responded affirmative by the class. Apparently last week she forgot to take note the rest of the group’s project. She then asked the class to take it with them the next day so that she can re-score and take note of it. So my group is technically the first one to submit the project and because of that we actually don’t have to redo it Lol.

    Maybe just a small thing but we are spared from redoing the project for the third time, which is welcomed anytime.

    1. She even said “Thanks to this group that submitted their project late today, otherwise i won’t noticed it”

  13. I have no idea why the author’s so inconsistent in describing the fire country. They apparently:
    1. Are in a desert.
    2. Have no water.
    3. Are in a tropical climate, which requires lots of water.
    4. Have fish to grill, which would need to be freshly caught or refrigerated, both of which require water.

    I guess this is the web novel, so hopefully the LN editor tells him to fix this…

    Like

    1. It is probably a tropical desert. As for the water and the fish, there are probably oases. Also, the climate in this country is not natural. It is due to the power of the Fire Goddess.

  14. Thank you for the chapter.

    Takki-dono has, somewhere far in the past, abandoned any common sense he may have had.

    Is Takki-donno the harbinger of disaster or something? Or does fate just love throwing him into the mix to shake things up and see what happens?
