WM – Chapter 206: Takatsuki Makoto heads to the medal award ceremony

I woke up, finished changing, and prayed to Noah-sama.

When I went to the dining room, Sa-san was there as usual, and Furiae-san who is normally oversleeping had already taken a seat. 

Lucy is most definitely still in bed. 

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

“Good morning, Takatsuki-kun.” (Aya)

“Good morning, My Knight.” (Furiae)

I took a seat while doing my morning greetings, and noticed the mysterious object on the plate.

“Sa-san, what is this black thing?” (Makoto)

“Hmm, the charcoal of what was once bacon?” (Aya)

“…And what’s the black thing at the side of that?” (Makoto)

“The charcoal of what was once egg.” (Aya)

“…There’s nothing else?” (Makoto)

“What! Are you saying you can’t eat what I have made?!” (Furiae)

“Eh?! You made it, Princess?!” (Makoto)

Didn’t you say you wouldn’t do something like cooking?

“Are you saying it is bad for me to be cooking?!” (Furiae)

“I-It isn’t bad…” (Makoto)

I look at the black stuff on my plate. 

No, this is straight up charcoal, ain’t it? 

It won’t kill me, I guess…

I resolved myself and lifted the chopsticks, but Sa-san took away the plate in a snap. 

“Alright, this is today’s for food Takatsuki-kun. I wanted to show that Fu-chan did her best to make it.” (Aya)

Sa-san switched to decent food with a smile.

“I will go wake up Lu-chan.” (Aya)

Sa-san tottered off. 

I look at the face of Furiae-san.

She is averting her gaze awkwardly. 

“…I will do better next time.” (Furiae)

“Ah…okay.” (Makoto)

What happened?

This is rare.

After that, Lucy had woken up, so we had breakfast together with everyone. 

◇◇

I pass my arm through the sleeve of my coat, place the dagger on my waist, and throw in some money in my pocket. 

‘Now then, where should I go today?’, is what I was thinking, but Lucy called me to a stop.

“Makoto, where do you plan on going?” (Lucy)

“Eh? Wander around.” (Makoto)

“Takatsuki-kun, do you know what day is today?” (Aya)

“…Hm? Did I have any appointments today?” (Makoto)

Let’s see, any plans with Lucy and Sa-san…I didn’t right?

“Today is the medal award ceremony for the people that contributed to the defeat of the Demon Lord. Were you not told that?” (Furiae)

Furiae-san told me while brushing the black cat.

“Ah!” (Makoto)

Right right. 

It was today?

“That was close. It is Makoto we are talking about here, so he definitely wouldn’t have returned till night.” (Lucy)

“Sofi-chan told you, didn’t she?! Geez, Takatsuki-kun!” (Aya)

Hmm, I certainly do feel like she told me that as she left. 

Can’t be helped. Looks like I will be staying at the inn for the day.

I trained in the inn for a while to kill time.

Princess Sofia came just past noon. 

“That’s a relief. You were properly here.” (Sofia)

“O-Of course.” (Makoto)

“Don’t lie, Makoto. You forgot.” (Lucy)

“Sofi-chan, Takatsuki-kun planned on going out today too~.” (Aya)

Aah, they easily exposed me! 

Princess Sofia made a ‘geez!’ face as she lightly glared at me.

“Then, let’s get going.” (Sofia)

We head to the Highland Castle together with Princess Sofia. 

◇◇

“What an impressive amount of people…” (Makoto)

There’s even more people than at the time when Sakurai-kun became a captain. 

Because there’s members of six countries here.

Lucy, Sa-san, Furiae-san, and I are participating as people of the Water Country. 

There’s a lot of people gathered already, but it seems they are waiting for the Highland King and the 5 sacred nobles.

It is nice how the big shots can come late.

Nothing to do. 

I use water balls to play something similar to jacktones as a timekiller, and Furiae-san asked ‘can you do other things?’ and it got in my head, and we ended up playing around with a lot of spells. 

Princess Sofia scolded us saying ‘behave’.

A certain group approached us probably after seeing the ruckus we made.

It was an old man that seemed gentle at a glance, but his eyes were sharp.

His attire was like what a priest would wear, but it was gaudier than the ones around.

The Pope-sama of the Highland Church.

There’s Templars at his back.

“Excuse the intrusion, people of Rozes.” 

“Your Holiness Roma. To think you would go through the trouble of coming to us yourself…” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia hurriedly greets him.

“I had business here, so I should be the one coming.” 

The Pope-sama said this and faced me.

“Rozes Hero-dono, you have my gratitude in the Demon Lord subjugation.” 

“O-Okay…” (Makoto)

I respond while being on guard.

This guy hates me for being an Evil God Apostle, right?

“If possible, I would like to ask you to convert to Althena-sama right at this moment, but Princess Sofia wouldn’t allow that. But there’s no reason not to convert to the Water Goddess Eir-sama, right? You are the Rozes Hero after all.” 

“That’s…Eir-sama has allowed it…” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia answers in my stead. 

“It is not about allowing or not. Our daily lives are thanks to the divine protection of the Holy God-samas. We are grateful for this, and have a duty to serve them. Allowing an Apostle of an Evil God as a Hero is…something that must not happen.” 

“T-That’s…” (Sofia)

The strong tone of the Pope was making Princess Sofia falter. 

(Again with that talk…) (Makoto)

I was getting weary of this.

(It is annoying how the believers of Althena are so hardheaded, right?) (Noah)

Noah-sama spoke to me.

“But let’s stop that talk for now. Takatsuki Makoto-dono is the 2nd biggest contributor in today’s medal award ceremony. I will take my time to convince you.” 

Oh? The Pope withdrew unexpectedly easily. 

Princess Sofia made a relieved expression.

“The problem is the Moon Oracle there.” 

The Pope looks at Furiae-san as if he were looking at a mortal enemy.

“…….”

Furiae-san was silent. 

“In a few days, the Great Demon Lord Iblis will resurrect. And yet, the reincarnation of the Calamity Witch that betrayed humanity 1,000 years ago and went to the demons is freely walking around. I will state it here! The resurrected Great Demon Lord Iblis will once again make contact with the Moon Oracle. When that happens, we would basically be carrying a worm in us. We cannot let the Moon Oracle roam free.” 

“Noel-sama said that we will be cooperating with the Moon Oracle though…” (Sofia)

“Princess Noel is a problematic one… Leaving aside the annulment of discrimination towards the beastkin and demi-humans, to show it to Dirty Blood as well is just…” 

Those words made the face of Furiae-san turn dangerous. 

This is bad.

I speak up before Furiae-san says something.

“Princess cooperated in stopping the rebellion that was about to happen in Symphonia. She wouldn’t be switching to the demon side at this point in time.” (Makoto)

“Princess…? Now that you say that, you are the Guardian Knight of the Moon Oracle, right. How foolish… Even though just being an Evil God Apostle alone is already atrocious enough…” 

This old man is going ‘Evil God’ ‘Evil God’ to the Goddess that I follow… Well, I guess she is seen as one though.

“But it is true that she does have contributions in the past. Instead of imprisoning her in the underground prison, we can have her be confined in a guest room. If it is that, there should be no problems, right? Now, come with us.” 

“““?!”””

The Templars surrounded us.

Oi oi, you are being way too forceful! 

Lucy, Sa-san, and I hurriedly step forward to protect Furiae-san. 

The knights of the Water Country were confused, but they also moved in order to protect us.

It ended with a stance as if the Water Country is facing the Templars of Highland. 

What are we going to do about this…?

“This is troubling… I don’t want to take forceful means though…” 

The Pope was making a troubled expression (most likely an act) and was crossing his arms. 

This is already forceful and beyond though.

“Hey, Pope old man, can’t we just kidnap that one?” 

A frivolous voice resonated.

‘Who is it?’, is what I thought, and it was one of the templars.

That face is…

“You must not do that, Sun Hero Alexander.” 

“What a pain. I would shut them up with one hit.” (Alex)

The Sun Hero Alex speaks with a grin on his face. 

…Was he like this?

“Stop, Alex. Althena-sama won’t allow such barbarity. Well then, people of the Water Country, once your feelings change, please do come to the Holy Maiden Anna’s Great Church. We will keep an eye on the Moon Oracle there. Once the Great Demon Lord subjugation is finished safely, we will free her. I will be taking my leave now…” 

“Aah, looks like your lives have been spared~.” (Alex)

Saying this, the Pope and the Sun Hero left with the templars.

What was that…?

“Was that guy always like that…?” (Lucy)

“He didn’t speak at all before, right?” (Aya)

Looks like Lucy and Sa-san had the same impression.

His character changed way too much…

“Tch!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san clicked her tongue in bitter annoyance.

“Princess, it is okay.” (Makoto)

“That’s right, Moon Oracle. The Water Country is your ally.” (Sofia)

“…Thanks.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san’s expression softened lightly at the words of Princess Sofia and me. 

Even so, that was nerve wracking.

It might not be good to stay too long in Highland…

◇◇

“A few words from the Prime Minister.” 

There was trouble, but the attendees arrived and the ceremony began. 

First is the Prime Minister, then the Five Sacred Nobles, and the royalty doing their greetings. 

And soon after it began, I noticed…

…Is this ceremony super long? 

Eh? Is today going to end with this? 

“Sofia, do you know the schedule of today?” (Makoto)

“Of the ceremony? It is here.” (Sofia)

The program that Princess Sofia showed me was a long long list of scheduled entries that made me dizzy. 

By the way, my turn is almost at the last part. 

I would have to stay on standby till then.

I also took a look at the line of participants. 

-White Great Sage-sama (absent)

-Crimson Witch Rosalie-sama (absent)

(So nice to be free!) (Makoto)

Haah…so boring.

Can’t I sneak out…?

{Sofia, I am thirsty, so I am gonna go get some water.} (Makoto)

I whispered to Princess Sofia at my side. 

{…Please come back by the time your name is called, okay?} (Sofia)

She pointed this out while giving me a judgeful eye. 

But I have gotten the permission of the Princess (I didn’t).

Let’s kill some time somewhere.

-Stealth.

In order to not get in the way of anyone, I use the Skill to leave. 

{Makoto, where are you going?} (Lucy)

{Takatsuki-kun?} (Aya)

{My Knight?} (Furiae)

All my party members called me out. 

You girls are way too keen.

{A short walk…} (Makoto)

{Wait, I will go too.} (Lucy)

{Ah, not fair, Lu-chan. Me too, me too!} (Aya)

{Eh?! Wait, if My Knight is going, I will go too!} (Furiae)

Uwah, it feels like it is going to turn into a big group.

{So, where are we going, Takatsuki-kun?} (Aya)

I don’t really have a place I want to go to.

There’s a lot of time before my name is called.

But it wouldn’t be good to go too far.

After thinking for a bit…

{When in doubt, go to the Great Sage-sama’s house.} (Makoto)

{Eeh…won’t she be in a bad mood being daytime?} (Lucy)

{The residence of the Great Sage-sama is dark and it is hard to relax in…} (Aya)

Lucy and Sa-san don’t seem to be that into the idea.

‘Guess I won’t be going’, Lucy said, and Sa-san went ‘me too’.

{What about you, Princess?} (Makoto)

{The residence of the White Great Sage, huh… I will have a word with her about putting her hands on My Knight.} (Furiae)

Looks like Furiae-san is coming with me. 

We used Stealth to stealthily leave the audience stands. 

Due to the ceremony taking place, the knights walking around the Highland Castle are few. 

There’s lookouts, but they didn’t mind us. 

We managed to reach the residence of the Great Sage-sama without problems.

“Hello~.” (Makoto)

I gave my greetings and entered the house. 

Furiae-san nervously followed behind me.

Relying on the candles lighting up the rooms and Night Vision, we walk through the corridor. 

What a whimsical house.

When we arrived at a deep room, the Great Sage-sama was sleeping there on a big sofa.

Her sleeping face is that of a regular child.

“She is sleeping, My Knight. Is it okay to have come in just like that?” (Furiae)

“It is okay, it is okay. I am her Guardian Knight after all.” (Makoto)

“I don’t think that’s what a Guardian Knight entails…” (Furiae)

“Let’s wait till she wakes up.” (Makoto)

“Okay…” (Furiae)

Furiae-san made an amazed face on me. 

Well, fine. 

I decide to rummage through her room.

…No, I won’t be stealing.

I am just looking, looking.

There’s a whole ton of books and magic tools in the Great Sage-sama’s room.

I actually wanted to have a long look at this place since a long time ago.

Furiae-san was checking out an old book that was on a bookshelf with great interest. 

I was wondering if there was an interesting magic tool around, and went into a room deeper inside.

If there’s something interesting, I will have her lend it to me.

While I was thinking that…

“What’s…this?” (Makoto)

At the back of the many bookshelves, there’s a strange opening as if it were being hidden. 

At the very middle of it, there’s a big square box.

It is a box big enough to have someone inside.

This is…a coffin, right?

A pitch black coffin.

Why is a coffin inside a room…?

Could it be that this is her bed since she is a vampire?

But she is sleeping on the sofa right now.

Hmm, what could this be?

Can’t go opening it…

The moment I approached the coffin a bit…

“Oi.” 

“Wa?!” 

My heart jumped.

The Great Sage-sama had shown up at my back.

“What a rascal you are. To sneak in while I am sleeping. Night crawling?” 

“Yeah, that’s right.” (Makoto)

“Are you an idiot? As if there’s a guy who would bring a woman while night crawling. Come here.” 

“Okay.” (Makoto)

We had some light talk as we returned to where she was before. 

We didn’t really touch on the coffin I saw before. 

“So, what’s your business? The ceremony is ongoing, right?” 

“The Great Sage-sama was sleeping, so I had to stay by your side as your Guardian Knight.” (Makoto)

I say this with a grin. 

“Hoh, quite the words there.” 

She responded with a grin of hers.

After that, the Great Sage-sama poured tea for me and Furiae-san.

How kind.

I sip it down.

I was thinking about what to talk about, but Furiae-san was strangely silent. 

The Great Sage-sama spoke instead.

“Now that I think about it, I will be travelling faraway tomorrow.” 

“Really?” (Makoto)

“Yeah. The army of the Sea Monster King Forneus apparently appeared in the Earth Country.” 

“Eh? Isn’t that really bad?!” (Makoto)

This isn’t the time to be holding a medal award!

“It is most likely just to keep us in check. The Great Demon Lord is going to be resurrecting soon. They probably don’t intend to attack seriously.” 

“I see.” (Makoto)

Forneus is the Demon Lord that rules over the sea monsters. 

If the battlefield is the sea, I could also be able to do something, so I am a bit interested. 

“I may be changing the topic, but…Spirit User-kun, Moon Oracle, be careful of the Pope. He has been presenting me with advice for making you my Guardian Knight. Since he is saying that, he must be plotting something.” 

The Great Sage-sama threw a timely topic.

“We were thrown into a pain of a situation regarding that not that long ago.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san made a frown as if she was remembering the displeasing emotions of just before.

“The Pope of this generation is a pagan hater of the highest degree. It seems like he has a reason for that, but…I would really like the internal conflicts to be left for after defeating the Demon Lord.” 

“Preach it.” (Makoto)

I was completely in agreement with what the Great Sage-sama said.

Seeing the attitude of the Pope, I don’t think that’s going to be so simple though.

At that moment, I asked something that suddenly crossed my mind.

“Now that I think about it, Great Sage-sama, the Sun Hero Alexander that is together with the Pope-sama, just what kind of guy is he?” (Makoto)

“That guy, huh… I don’t know too well myself. It is a man that suddenly appeared around half a year ago all of a sudden.” 

Even the Great Sage-sama doesn’t know, huh.

“But his ability is the real deal. To think there would be a Hero who has that much mana and aura sitting out of office until now. I thought the skilled people in the West Continent had been excavated…  Maybe they brought him from outside the continent. I suspected that he might have come from a parallel world, but…it doesn’t seem to be the case.” 

“I see…” (Makoto)

He is a weird guy.

His personality is completely different from before. 

“B-By the way…!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san who was silent until now approached the Great Sage-sama as if she had resolved herself. 

“Hm?” 

“Great Sage-sama! Can you please not make My Knight into your Guardian Knight without my permission?!” (Furiae)

“Hoh?” 

She peeked her fangs with a grin at the words of Furiae-san.

“Are you jealous?” 

“T-That’s not it! What are you saying?!” (Furiae)

“Having more than one isn’t that rare of a situation. There’s no real inconvenience with it.” 

Right right, you have to get all the buffs you can! 

“The Spirit User-kun has already used 4 of the 5 major pacts… I advised it, but 4 is a lot. The blood pact might have been unnecessary.” 

“Hm?” (Makoto)

4?

The pacts I have formed currently are:

-Noah-sama’s Soul Pact.

-Furiae-san’s Word Pact.

-Great Sage-sama’s Blood Pact.

“It is only 3.” (Makoto)

“What are you saying? I didn’t notice before, but you have already made a Body Pact with that red haired mage. Well, it seems like it is a provisional pact, so it isn’t shown in the Soul Book, but I can see it with my Appraisal.” 

…Hm?

Red haired mage…there’s no doubt she is referring to Lucy.

Lucy and I have made a Body Pact?

“M-My Knight…you…since when?” (Furiae)

When I look at my side, there’s Furiae-san trembling as if she were looking at a traitor. 

No, wait, this is a misunderstanding! 

…It is, right?

  2. Thanks for the chapter!

    Wait, they even wrote Great Sage-sama’s name as White Great Sage? I wonder why her name is so secret. And what’s the contain of the coffin could be? She looks like has a tripwire alarm nearby the coffin that woke her up as soon as Makoto is approaching it lol.

    And Makoto, you even thought of taking items from Great Sage-sama’s place like it’s Skyrim? You surely enjoying your life a lot in this world xD
    Body Pact with Lucy heh, it seems it’s when he kissed her. Mouth is also a body part afterall.
    Furiae-sama is getting more and more agitated and conscious of Makoto and his harem heheh. We should see her opened up towards Makoto very soon.

    About Alex’s matter. He’s getting more suspicious now. Why does he obeyed the Pope’s word easily, not like before when he obeyed only Ira-sama’s word? He should have some connections with the church.

    1. The prevalent theory is that makoto is inside the coffin.
      Because the house of the White Great Sage-sama seems to be made out of ice like crystals and because of some hints White Loli-sama has given us.
      No idea why or how he can s going to do it but he will most likely time travel to the past and take the name of Abel (probably)

      Liked by 9 people

      1. Like after the first demon lord And makoto mentioned he talked with him for a bit.
        She ask him “did he said something about Abel or someone else” kind of panicking.
        That together with the demon lord kind of recognizing makoto but letting it out as a mistake is the biggest.
        On the second demo lord White Loli-sama knew about RPG side effects even though it isn’t on the soul book

      2. If you believed the time travel Makoto theory, I’ll propose alternative theory for the coffin.

        What if the coffin is Saint Anna? Remember in the earlier chapter, the story about hero Abel who goes away to travel abandoning his lover because [There’s someone waiting for me]? Whose answer resembled Makoto’s answer at the time?

        Remember about the prophecy who said that Sakurai dies after defeating Iblis and the only way to cancel that, as said by Ira, is to have someone who can use resurrection like Noel being near him? Anna can serve as a substitute on the battlefield.

        My theory is Saint Anna chased Makoto due to her love, by using the cryochamber like in Fallout games. There might be a special reason Great Sage’s house is an ice house after all.

        Liked by 4 people

      3. So the reason why the great sage’s house is made of ice and the fact that it hasn’t melted yet(we know makoto was able to make long lasting ice thanks to the spirits), maybe makoto is in cryosleep in the coffin? Frozen till after his job is done in the past?

    2. Remember that he was planning to break vases and check drawers when he first arrived to Rozes’ castle ? Who knows what he would have done if Fujiyan and Sa-san didn’t stop him in time.

      Furiae being jealous is cute ! She just needs a little push in order to confess to Makoto.

      The Great Sage stopped Makoto before he could verify its contents, so I assume that the contents of the coffin will be very important in the future with the way it was introduced.

      1. Now that you mention it, i recalled about the statue. We don’t get any more view or idea on what that statue could hides. If i would to connect it with the coffin thingies mentioned above, i would think that that statue hides the Hero Abel and only now is reacting and thus its colour is changed (according to Makoto) because the Demon Lord is about to be resurrected. Maybe we’ll see it break and Abel comes out of there. Oh dear, now its a JoJo reference of Wamuu and his gang

    3. Alex doesn’t seem all that obedient, he followed this time, but he’s also talking this time, so he might not be himself. I worry about how no one else sees a problem with such a powerful person appearing out of nowhere, just a half a year ago when all hell started breaking loose, and is now the right hand of the Pope.

      Liked by 5 people

      1. Maybe before he’s just being quite because it’s a formal meeting and all so he might behave for a while. Also, you are right. Half a year after the ruckus of Sakurai as reincarnation of Light Hero, and Alex showed up showing incredible power and no one would compare him to Sakurai. It’s all too vague

  3. When the Pope said that he will actually take his time to convince Makoto to change religion, I was thinking that the guy is not so bad and is going in the right direction. But well, that didn’t last long…

    I sure as hell thought that Makoto would “accidentally” find the Great Sage’s underwear secret stash while he was snooping around. Maybe that is what’s in the coffin…

  5. The Pope should just die. He is definitely going to harm Makoto’s party.
    I hope that he would die like a certain pope in a novel about a shield hero. What was the name of the attack, again ? I remember !
    “Let this foolish criminal be punished as I see fit. The sacrificial shout to heaven ! Let his fool’s scream pierce the sky ! May dragon jaws born from my flesh erase him from this world !
    “Blood sacrifice !”

    The character of the Sun Hero is really to weird. What happened ?

    A coffin ? What could be inside it? Foreshadowing?
    Looks like Furiae is jealous. She is really cute !

    ““M-My Knight…you…since when?” (Furiae)
    When I look at my side, there’s Furiae-san trembling as if she were looking at a traitor.
    No, wait, this is a misunderstanding!
    …It is, right? ”
    HAHAHAHA. Looks like the body pact was the love pact. The body pact seems to imply a need of physical contact to make the pact. I remember that it was translated as corpse pact before. It would have make no sense at all if it was not changed lol.😂

    1. I think there is a possibility that Isaac took over the body of Alexander and might just be pretending to follow orders but rather just waiting for the time to strike.
      If he attacks Furiae to make her side with the demon lord (no idea if that will actually happen or is just the pope delusion) then Makoto will fight to protect her and she will finally be honest with her feelings and assault makoto on the hospital bed.
      Or at least that’s what I want to happen if not something similar

      1. She didn’t get the “Makoto pre-order”, so she only gets standard stuff that’s available to all players.
        Sa-san got it so she will get Life Pact.
        Noah got the early access pack along with Lucy but, since Noah was first, she got the Soul Pact while Lucy was given Body Pact.
        Furiae got a custom version with built-in mods, set on hard mode, so she got Word Pact after triggering as many charm flags as possible.
        And Great Sage is playing since Beta, so she was able to reserve her pact beforehand. Since she’s a vampire, she went with Blood.

  6. First thing first that we know Furiae is the common I can’t cook properly heroine…. But it must cause of her standing and her situation where the people around her doing everything to help her cause of her beauty.
    Well the pope just hated the devil kin so much that I think somewhere in the future we will get a glimpse of the pope past probably.
    There’s also the hero Alex , like the great sage said he just shown up suddenly about a year ago and accumulated up status enough to be called as the sun hero …. He suspected to be a otherworlder too , I hope he just a high egoist character not a hidden boss character .
    And lastly Makoto sure is carefree making reason to skip the long awarding ceremony and use the chance to meet up with his new princess (great sage sama) but btw does the kissing count as body pact too cause it’s making Furiae jealous and angry for a bit … I hope Great sage sama can say something to avoid any misunderstanding.

  7. So this answer a bit my previous question about the Contract, I still need more info but this is enough for the moment I suppose. Now that I think of it, I remembered that with the contracts Makoto gain something, Noah = Spirit Magic, Furiae = Charm magic (almost noneexistent) and now with White Loli there should be something, I wonder what will be.

    Now seems like Alex lost the divinity for that of now have will, there are two explanations for that that I can think, 1 Ira-chan take back the borrowed divinity for been scolded by Althena, 2 the divinity that he could contain was used (could be all or just almost all) defeting the Snake Chuch.

    1. I think Alex is the one thats gonna stab Sakurai. For one he is powerful enough that with a sneak attack he could do major damage and the second reason is how they said he just randomly appeared and might possibly be an other worlder. If he is an otherworlder or some secret believer of another god they wouldn’t be able to see his future or at least not as easily so it would make sense why they can’t see who stabs sakurai

    1. The Blood Pact was with the Great Sage where they each drank some of each other’s blood. Do you mean the Body Pact? I’m sure that that’s the Love Pact Makoto was told about when he kissed Lucy to use fire spirits.

  9. OK this is just getting ridiculous. Why is that sack of shit pope still around? He very clearly will be a detriment to the alliance against Iblis. Even the Great Sage says that they can’t afford any internal conflicts now when they were talking about the pope. Just strip him of his position and kick him out or imprison him or better yet execute him. He is constantly spouting crap about devilkins and all other demihumans being dirty and beneath humans despite how one of the nations part of this alliance -Spring Log- is made up mostly of demihumans while other nations like Rozes and Great Keith aren’t very discriminatory. Then he cares more about his racism than he does about his religion since he clearly doesn’t care when not only the goddess Eir but also the goddess he is supposedly supposed to believe in and pray to -Althena- both have said to leave Makoto and Furi alone. With how much importance most people put into the proclamations of the goddesses, what the pope is doing can be seen as downright blasphemy that is grounds for execution. Noel should be able to at the very least fire and imprison him since she has way more influence than him since she is the next queen of Highland who has expressly been given the authority by the current king to do what she wants and also she is now the Saint.

    Anyways I was honestly expecting that when Makoto started rummaging through the Great Sage’s stuff, he’d find her panties. Like maybe the coffin he found would be just full of very ‘adult’ underwear.

    So I guess the Love Pact that Makoto was previously taught about is actually the Body Pact. Well I do remember that the Love Pact was divided into multiple levels with marriage and sex being some of the levels.

    It’s adorable how Furi is jelly of the Great Sage.

    1. Same same was expecting Makoto to find her underwear.

      The Pope and Sun Country nobles are such are hard headed people. The piggy Pope should practice what he preaches and tell the priests to stop bonking the nuns. Noel should have higher authority and take the Pope’s position away soon being a Saint now.

  10. Thanks for the chapter~!

    The Pope is such a detriment to the team. Also, what is this about Alex? With great sage’s warning I do think both of them will make a move soon in this arc, we’ve been missing action for a while after all.

    Oh my, Lucy’s body pact? Oh my. What’s the 5 pact again? i forgot. I think Makoto will have all 5 pacts available though.

    Like

    1. The 5 pacts are: Soul, Word, Blood, Body and Life. The only pact Makoto doesn’t have yet is a Life Pact. Well the Great Sage said that his Body Pact is only provisional so it might not count as a Guardian Knight Pact like the other three he has(Apostle is probably the equivalent of Guardian Knight for a god).

  11. Furiae has been so adorable these last few chapters. I kind of expected Makoto to find Great Sage’s underwear or poke her cheeks or something.

    What’s in the coffin? Abel? Anna? Or is the Great Sage the yandere type to freeze Makoto and keep him inside forever as hers? Not very likely, but would be amusing in a dark way. Undead cannot use spirit magic.

    Lucy and Aya are the real yanderes here. They will lieterally follow Makoto to the underworld if they have to… and Furiae is like Aya now. She usually never disagrees with whatever Makoto wants and even becomes an accomplice with him in trouble making. Sophia and Janet are probably the only responsible and duty bound members of the harem.

    That piggy Pope must be barbequed from the highest tower. Then healed back from burns. Then burnt again for each innocent person he killed and chaste nun that be bonked.

    Maybe Makoto should ask Ira about Alex?

    Hmmm……. Alex or more like Issac….. Well I think that they both are connected to snake Church and probably the pope too….
    Fu-chan don’t do this, this cuteness is dangerous for my heart (≧▽≦)…..
    On another note, with his the story is going, I won’t be surprised if Sofia or Fu-chan are going to have a M side to them behind their graceful images.
    Thanks for the chapter btw.
    (P.S.: Since the introduction of highland, I’ve seen Sofia Chan more flustered and I think sometimes author really forgot about her graceful coldheart image)

    1. It makes me wonder. She might be like that from the beginning. Maybe after she realized her responsibility of becoming a country’s princess, and that she learnt that Cold Heart makes her able to maintain more focus, she’s creating a fake persona ever since then and maybe would only deactivate Cold Heart at night when she’s resting.

      But eh i guess Makoto melted that Cold Heart so much that she can’t maintain it like she used to anymore ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    almost all of us are so sure that makoto is Abel lol (at least its confirm that makoto was present 1000yrs ago)

    a house made of ice mana and prevents sunlight from entering entirely(my guess related to sun goddess althena) when the great sage doesnt get affected by sunlight or like cold stuff.And a mysterious coffin placed at the center of the house~
    I feel there is a body in it ,the question is ,is it mc from the past/his missing soul piece/(surprise)body of great demon king iblis.

    and alex previously felt like a puppet now he feels like a sadistic torturer/executioner.

      2. its not just time travelling,there’s the actual reincarnation or an exact copy of him/clone in the past too

        they dropped too many hints,you read lots of novels like this,you’ll notice the troupes soon,if i have to name some then:
        1.the constant comparison that mc rushing head first into danger with a small party against overwhelming numbers overlapping with abel
        2.Him being repeatedly stopped from voicing his name to the demons from 1k years ago and setekh conveniently not having his eyes to see mc
        3.Bifrons saying mc looked exactly like his hated enemy but was slightly different
        4.Mc being the only one with an incomplete soul despite having been the last to die in his world(just before sakurai and aya if i recall right)
        5.Althena never visiting or sending any message to him despite the story repeatedly telling she hates noah and any followers if hers and will do anything to destroy them.
        6.Other characters remaking how mc bantering with the goddesses seems too natural and intimate (highlighted even more during his talk with ira first time when janet comments this)
        7. sage taking an easy liking to mc and repeatedly asking for ONLY(said to have requested sakurai once earlier and hated it) his blood so far
        8.Sage gets panicked af when mc tells her he talked with bifrons
        9.ONLY mc hearing Iblis’s voice or only him feeling something weird while looking at abel’s statue
        10.Abel having run off to save some girl after defeating the demon lord and refusing anna(1st sun holy maiden)
        11.The gods using jap terms ,themes and references casually

        well only this much as i recall,add more if i left any

      3. The thing about the gods using JP references freely has some explanation at least. Considering it’s very much canon that Eir and Noah ate Haagen Dazs while sorting out paperwork. They probably have access to media too.

  16. At this point i think its safe to assume that the pope is either straight up working for the bad guys or else is being heeeeeeeeavily influenced by them. His rabid attempts to have MC executed despite countless examples of him and his crew saving the day. They’ve basically saved the water, sun, wood and fire kingdoms each from separate disasters. No rational person could look at his list of achievements and declare him a mortal enemy who will stab them in the back, after hes done saving them for the umpteenth time.

    Might be completely off the mark but it would fit. Pope hates MC cause hes messed up every plan hes had thus far and preserved the majority of the fighting force against the demon lord, hates the moon oracle because shes on humanities side this time. They kill off a bunch of their lower/fake servants using their highly suspicious hired hero to make it look like the serpent church has been destroyed and now move onto next phase.

    1. Could be. But I think it’s more likely he simply can’t see past his prejudice. I think it was also mentioned in a previous chapter that Devilkin killed his parents, which should make him even more stubborn and inflexible in matters involving them.

    Gee, this Pope is a pain in the ass. Yeah no. His nonsense about letting her go after the war ends definitely wasn’t going to happen. Most likely, he would make up some crime and have her executed without judge or jury.
