WM – Chapter 160: Takatsuki Makoto returns in the morning of the next day

“I am back~.” (Makoto)

“Uuuh~, I want to take a bath…” (Aya)

Sa-san and I were in shambles, and it was only after the morning sun was rising that we were able to return to the inn.

The reasons for the both of us being beaten up is completely different though.

I was desperately avoiding the attacks of the Sand Dragons with Evade; Sa-san was rip and tearing her way into the Sand Dragon rampage.

At the end, the mountain of Sand Dragons were wiped out.

They are dangerous dragons that attack travelling adventurers and merchants in the desert and wasteland, so I don’t think it is a bad thing to have defeated them though…

(But I think we have changed the ecology of the desert…) (Makoto)

Humans really are the ones who are the least kind to nature.

Sa-san is a lamia though.

When we entered our lodging, there was Princess Sofia, Lucy, and Furiae-san with Tsui in the dining room, having finished breakfast, and were drinking tea.

Sa-san and I were about to head to our room all woozily, but were called to a stop.

“Good morning, Hero Makoto, Aya.” (Sofia)

The voice of Princess Sofia is cold. 

In other words, the usual.

“Hey, Makoto, Aya, where did you two go to just the two of you last night?” (Lucy)

Lucy’s voice was low and cold.

Oh? This is the first time I hear a voice like this from Lucy. 

“Good morning, Sofi-chan, Lu-chan…” (Aya)

Looks like Sa-san hasn’t noticed that the state of the two is different from normal.

Alright, I will also feign as if I am sleepy and didn’t notice too—.

“You must have enjoyed yourselves last night.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san says this with a grin while brushing the back of the black cat.

““…….””

We obviously can’t ignore that one, so Sa-san and I turn around.

Princess Sofia and Lucy were looking intently over here. 

“Heya there.” (Makoto)

For now, I tried greeting them in a bright tone.

“Oh, that’s quite the light greeting for a man who has returned the next morning.” (Sofia)

“Makoto, we were waiting all this time, you know?” (Lucy)

Aah, messed up in the way of dealing with it.

Their eyes grew sharper.

“Takki-dono!” (Fuji)

“Everyone! This is bad!” (Nina)

While I was troubled thinking about how to explain everything that transpired, Fuji-yan and Nina-san hurriedly came in. 

Nice timing! 

“Did something happen, Fuji-yan?” (Makoto)

And so, I have to listen to the distress of my friend.

“Please hear me out! It looks like an unbelievable monster appeared in the desert-desu zo!” (Fuji)

“Hoho, interesting. I would like to hear more about this.” (Makoto)

I urge Fuji-yan to go on.

Princess Sofia and Lucy also reluctantly direct their eyes at Fuji-yan.

“Nina-dono, please explain.” (Fuji)

“Yes! These rumors have been going around this whole morning in the Adventurer Guild! They said that the Sand Dragons of the desert have been wiped out in one night!” (Nina)

(Hm?) (Makoto)

Sand Dragons…

“What?!” (Sofia)

“Sand Dragons wiped out!” (Lucy)

Princess Sofia and Lucy raised their voice in surprise.

I glanced to the side and Furiae-san seemed to not be interested in it. She was stroking the chin of the black cat and making it purr.

Looks like the Sand Dragons being wiped out…is apparently big news.

Sand Dragons…

“That’s impossible… The Calamity Designation monsters that have been troubling the military authorities of the Fire Country…” (Sofia)

“Yes… The rulers of the Fire Country’s desert defeated in one night is unbelievable.” (Nina)

Princess Sofia muttered dumbstruck, and Nina-san spoke in excitement.

“Even between elves, I was taught when I was a child not to get close to the Sand Dragon’s nest of the Fire Country…” (Lucy)

“Now that you mention it, my wet nurse might have said something like that too. That I shouldn’t approach the desert of the Fire Country.” (Furiae)

Looks like it was a famous story for Lucy and Furiae-san too.

Yeah…

What to do…

I glanced at Sa-san.

“…Zzzz.” (Aya)

She is sleeping while standing?! 

Oi, it is obviously our fault! 

Do I have to be the one to explain it? 

Sa-san was the one who defeated them all while I was just running around, so it is embarrassing for me to explain it, you know?! 

“What… Takki-dono…” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan picked up on it with his mind reading skill.

“This isn’t good. There’s obviously an abnormality occurring. I will head to the Great Keith Castle and gather information.” (Sofia)

“Thanks, Sofia-sama. We will go around the Adventurer Guild and the Company Guild.” (Nina)

“I will also help!” (Lucy)

Princess Sofia, Nina-san, and Lucy were about to move.

N-No good.

I have to hurry and explain! 

“Wait…everyone, it seems like Takki-dono knows everything about it.” (Fuji)

While I was panicking here, Fuji-yan followed up for me.

“““Eh?”””

Everyone’s gazes gather on me at once.

Sa-san is sleeping peacefully…

So I have to be the one to explain it, huh…

“…Actually…” (Makoto)

I explained everything that happened last night.

“Wiped out a nest of Sand Dragons on her own…?” (Sofia)

“N-No way…” (Nina)

Princess Sofia and Nina-san were making completely shocked expressions.

“Aya! Aya, wake up! Is what Makoto is saying true?!” (Lucy)

Lucy is shaking Sa-san, but Sa-san must have fallen into a deep sleep just now, she wasn’t waking up at all.

She must have been really tired.

“But I don’t know if the Fire Country will believe us even if we were to tell them the truth.” (Fuji)

Fuji-yan was scratching his head with a troubled expression.

It looks like subjugating the nest of Sand Dragons is such a big thing that there’s a high chance they won’t believe that it was wiped out by Sa-san alone.

“But we can’t just keep silent about it. The Fire Country is currently desperate in finding the reason as to why the Sand Dragons have been wiped out. If we don’t tell them the truth, the nation will be uneasy too.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia prepared to depart with a resolved face.

“Shall I go too?” (Makoto)

I think it would be better to have a related party tag along.

“No, if you go, they might try to pull something. I will go first.” (Sofia)

“I see.” (Makoto)

I am sorry.

When I glanced at the other related party, she was going ‘munya munya’ as she sleep-talked.

“Fufu, you must not do that at a place like this, Takatsuki-kun… Geez, you are such a pervert.” (Aya)

Sa-san…are you doing that on purpose?

““……””

Lucy and Princess Sofia’s looks hurt.

“Aya~, wake up already~.” (Lucy)

Lucy pulled the soft cheeks of Sa-san.

“Uuhn…” (Aya)

Oh, did she wake up?

“…Hm~, eh? What’s the matter everyone?” (Aya)

Noticing that everyone was looking at her, she fidgets as if embarrassed.

“Aya, you have done an unbelievable thing.” (Lucy)

“Eh? Lu-chan. What do you mean by ‘unbelievable thing’?” (Aya)

Sa-san was sleeping and didn’t hear the details, so she couldn’t keep up with what’s going on.

“Sasaki-dono, you have pulled quite the achievement.” (Fuji)

“But Sasaki-sama is registered as a Stone Rank adventurer. The Adventurer Guild will most likely be troubled with what to do.” (Nina)

Fuji-yan and Nina-san looked at each other and grumbled.

“Hero Makoto, there’s the chance that you will be called to explain the situation to the General. Be on standby just in case, please. Aya-san, you too.” (Sofia)

“Understood, Sofia.” (Makoto)

I nod, and Sa-san was blinking in confusion.

It may be late, but it seems like she noticed that she is the center of this conversation.

Sa-san nervously speaks.

“D-Did I do something?” (Aya)

Sa-san, that phrase in itself is already an out.

◇◇

I took a bath and collapsed onto the bed, but I woke up a few hours later.

Looks like I can’t have a deep sleep when the sun is up.

I was interested in how Sa-san was doing, so I peeked into her room and saw that she was knocked out on her bed.

I was ordered by Princess Sofia to stay in standby, so I decided to train my water magic in my room.

(Hmm, I didn’t get a complete sleep, so I am a bit sluggish, but not to the point that I want to go back to sleep one more time…) (Makoto)

I was sitting on the bed with questionable concentration as I continued training, but my back suddenly got heavy. 

“Lucy?” (Makoto)

“It is rare for you to not notice, Makoto.” (Lucy)

Since when did she enter my room?

Lucy had leaned her back on mine like a chair.

“It seems I can’t concentrate.” (Makoto)

“I see.” (Lucy)

Lucy says this as if she isn’t that interested in it while taking off her coat. 

I heard the sound of the coat falling from the bed.

Right now Lucy is wearing what seems to be a camisole. 

Is it hot?

The temperature in the Fire Country is pretty high.

“It is hot.” (Lucy)

Before I could ask anything, Lucy said this and I could see in the corner of my eye that she was about to take off even that camisole. 

“Lucy-san, what are you doing?” (Makoto)

Of course I would retort.

“I am just taking my clothes off because it is hot.” (Lucy)

Don’t do that in my room! 

I undo my perspective change, and tried to use water magic, but I couldn’t do it as I always manage to. 

By the time I noticed, I was together with a loosely clothed Lucy, and we were sitting together on the bed.

This is…

“Makoto, you are the type that doesn’t feed the fish that you catch.” (Lucy)

“Feed?” (Makoto)

“When I was a child, I saw my Mama and my sisters, and thought that it was vulgar for women to approach men.” (Lucy)

“I-I see.” (Makoto)

Well, she was raised in a family of carnivorous women after all…

“But I was wrong! Mama was right. Because Makoto just doesn’t do anything no matter how much I wait!” (Lucy)

She wrapped her arms around my neck.

Lucy’s temperature is so high! 

Didn’t you get better at controlling your mana? 

“And so, I decided to do the attacking.” (Lucy)

“Isn’t that sudden?” (Makoto)

I was made to face Lucy’s way, and was pushed down just like that.

And just when I was about to have my buttons undone…

*Bang!*

The door opened without even a knock.

“Takatsuki-kun, Lu-chan, you are so loud.” (Aya)

Sa-san entered while rubbing her eyes.

We weren’t loud though.

Have her ears gotten better with her evolution?

“Lucy-san, leave the joking around to that much.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia entered.

“Okay, Lu-chan. That’s as far as you go~.” (Aya)

“Eeh, just a bit more. A tiny bit more.” (Lucy)

“No no. We are doing it with the three together, right?” (Aya)

Sa-san does a nelson hold on Lucy as they leave.

Lucy didn’t resist. 

(Three…) (Makoto)

I saw off the two who were being playful with each other.

A cold wind passed by my neck the next instant.

Princess Sofia was standing closeby. 

“I have something to talk to you about. Please come over here.” (Sofia)

I had my hand pulled by Princess Sofia and was brought into her room.

The hand of Princess Sofia was the complete opposite of Lucy, really cold.

Ah, she is angry.

      1. Well Sa-san just said she wanted all three to go at the same time with Makoto…

  3. I thought Sa-san was Bowser or Dragonite, but she was Mario all along.
    She wields a hammer, kills a lot of monsters , has double jump, charged attack, dash, remaining lives and uses the skill Change to take mutiple forms. Yep, she is definitely Mario.

  4. Of course… Who would believe that a sweet looking little girl can wipeout a nest of sand dragons. Even their crazy hero didnt manage to do that.

    And i have a feeling that they just destroyed one of the snake church plan prematurely just by wiping out those scary lizards.

    Thank you for this chapter!

  5. One thing I hate most in this novel is.. It focuses a lot on POVs of female characters whom are not romantically interested in Makoto… I mean we rarely get any other male POV… I mean seriously… They are lover’s of a side Character that we can’t even relate to….
    I somewhat Understandable for Noel’s case.. But the moon oracle & her dealing of Makoto seriously pisses me of…

  6. Thanks for the chapter~ and I was right about it becoming a political thing~ kinda curious what Sofia plans to do, or rather what the fire kingdom demands Aya to do in order to prove what they did~ also did not expect Lucy to attack like that~ wonder if it counts as progress? Who knows~ can’t wait for the next chapter~

  8. Thanks for the chapter 😊.

    I hope Fuji-yan is selling some potent aphrodisiac for Makoto. Handling 3 women in one night with everyone being inexperienced, Makoto would need all the energy he could muster. He would especially need it for Sa-san.

  9. So Sa-san is Doom Slayer. All she needs now is a shotgun that she can load with malicious intent. Or a trumpet so she can doot.
    (for those who don’t get the reference)

    Anyways why should they even tell the fire country shit? After how they’ve treated them they deserve to be made to sweat it out thinking there’s some superboss out there somewhere. Why do the officials or whatever of the fire country even turn to Makoto’s group to explain? They have no reason to think that a bunch of foreigners would know anything about what killed all the sand dragons in the first place. They should just keep quiet.

    I guess Lucy has had enough of Makoto’s shit with him not doing ANYTHING. They’ve kissed but it was either because the girls forced themselves on him or because Makoto wanted to verify he could see fire spirits through kissing Lucy. He’s never kissed them just because he wants to. Hell he’s not even once held hands with any of them.

  10. Heh. I think that won back some clout by chance. It’s unbelievable, but it’s not like the Fire Country can afford to ignore the claim that they’re responsible.

    …Maybe they should share the credit for the subjugation so they don’t have a fair estimate of Sa-san for the tournament.

    …Y’know, I haven’t had a problem with this before, but somehow, the girls being jealous this chapter kinda…irked me. Like, why are you acting all jealous like Takki’s in the doghouse when 1) you haven’t pushed hard to get anywhere with him, 2) he’s offered no commitment or promise to you of any kind, and 3) he technically isn’t obligated to accept a relationship with any you.
    If you’re gonna be fussy, direct it at the feral woman who dragged him off into a dragon nest.

    1. If I knew I’d die in 5-10 years I would also be reluctant to get into a serious relationship with these women. They’re looking to marry and spend their lives with Makoto but he’ll die soon after adulthood.

    2. Y’know, I’ve found a real simple solution for this.
      Blame it on RPG player.
      He doesn’t try to get into a relationship with the girls or actively pursue love because of the perspective of being outside the world. When you play an RPG do you seriously care about the relationship you choose for your ‘character’? No, it’s passing interest at best. Makotos got his big smooth virgin gamer brain hyper fixated on powering up and overcoming the ‘final boss’ that is freeing Noah and you really think he’ll throw away his precious training time for love?
      We already saw this shit when he first kissed Lucy. This mentality ain’t gonna change no matter what happens.

    been a while i’m Here 😂 i think since chap 220+ around 250 of Tsuki ga Michibiku..

    So I been Wondering Why didn’t Makoto Check did he has Skill Point amd Stats Point. since it’s common sense for RPG player yo assing their own stats..

    Also, this bit repeating My comment.
    Reigokai i think you make mistake in naming Fire Arc. you name it as Fifth Chapter not Seventh..

    1. his stats increase are way too low, even at level 20-30 his mana is only around 4 after all

      that’s why he’s focusing on capping skill proficiency now

      Like

      1. the goddess already helped him with the skill, by giving him spirit art skill and making the skill proficiency gone past the level cap, so that he can see and control spirits, who have infinite mana.

        also, he can’t get advanced skills due to status requirement

        his meikyou shisui/clear mind skill and rpg player skill were already top level and broken in their own right

        so yeah, he’s a minmaxing aoe glass canon build

      3. there’s no point in this, nor inventory

  15. So a question for the regulars here: Do Makoto’s harem know that he has less than 10 years left in his lifespan?

    I feel like this should be a much bigger deal. Whatever he does, he only ends up decreasing it further. It means that even if he got married and had kids he wouldn’t live to see any of them grow to adulthood. I feel like he’s too casual and accepting about having 4-5 wives for someone who’s supposed to die soon.

    Or do the goddesses intend to fix this eventually?

    Like

    1. That only becomes an issue if he stops being able to recover lifespan or kills himself outright overdoing a sacrifice. Did the story mention if Aya has a limited lifespan though? She’s a long lived race but didn’t get the standard isekai treatment.

      1. It becomes an issue whenever they’ve subjugated the demon threat and things get peaceful again. Given how Makoto’s only able to scrape a few years here and there even for taking out major threats his chances of living a long life look dim. I’m surprised there isn’t more drama around that.

    Oh my! Fu-chan loves to stir the pot. Love it! No mercy for Takki-dono!

    And Sa-san, don’t fall asleep when you are the centre of the commotion. And does Takki-dono just have a super power that causes misunderstandings? Boy oh boy!

    Lucy is so risque! But I agree with Sa-san, it has to be all three of them with Takki-dono! Well all Harem members available at the time.
