WM – 231.5: Gossip – The depression of a certain holy maiden

TLN: Hey guys, Reigokai here!

It seems I jumped this one the last time, so here it is! It wasn’t given a chapter number by the author so I placed a .5 instead. That might have heavily contributed in me missing it despite having translated it already, haha.

Anyways, sorry about that and enjoy the chapter!


◇Furiae POV◇

It has been a month since My Knight left.

My Knight Makoto, who has been by my side the whole time, is not here.

He traveled 1,000 years into the past.

I am in the ruins of the Moon Country, Laphroaig.

No, former ruins.

“Furiae-sama!! The church will be finished soon!” 

“Holy Maiden-sama! The road and waterway has expanded all the way here!” 

“Furiae-sama, we are grateful for you making rounds, but please don’t push yourself!” 

“Holy Maiden-sama, you are as beautiful today as well…” 

I was spoken to one after the other, and I waved my hand with a smile I am not used to making.

There’s several tens of knights as bodyguards following me. 

I am not used to this lifestyle…

There was nothing here 1 month ago.

The capital that was destroyed 1,000 years ago, the weed and trees that would grow as they pleased; that’s all it was.

But now…

“This is impressive. A road has been made in just 1 month, many buildings have been constructed, and it is becoming a splendid city.” 

I heard that voice from my back and I looked back in an instant.

“Princess Sofia…-sama. You came. We are grateful to Rozes. For providing us -devilkin- who are lacking in technique with manpower…” (Furiae)

I hurriedly lowered my head and gave my thanks as the representative of the new Laphroaig.

“Holy Maiden Furiae, I told you it is okay to not give me such stiff greetings.” (Sofia)

“Yeah, but…I truly am grateful.” (Furiae)

I return the smile of Princess Sofia with a wry smile.

Many devilkin have gathered in order to revive Laphroaig.

Making a country requires money. 

Camelon is currently assisting us with the funds.

Next is the capable people.

There’s a lot of devilkin that can’t even read, so there aren’t any people who can lead groups. 

The Water Country of Rozes has been sending capable people who can lead others.

Princess Sofia herself gathered people and has come to the Moon Country.

My gratitude towards her is unending.

“But is it really okay to be making a city all carefreely…? Even though the Great Demon Lord has resurrected just recently…” (Furiae)

I look north where the Demonic Continent is located at.

“Ira-sama said that this isn’t the time to attack, so it can’t be helped.” (Sofia)

“Are the predictions of that Goddess really reliable…?” (Furiae)

Because of past events, I don’t trust in the Destiny Goddess.

“You must not be like that, Furiae. That very Goddess-sama is the one assisting Laphroaig to an explosive extent.” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia hurriedly covered my mouth.

Right, most of the funds of the revival of the Moon Country are being shouldered by the Commercial Country…that the Destiny Goddess has instructed to do.

But this is reparations for what she has done in the past.

It is natural to receive this.

“If Highland were to help out, the city would be made faster though.” (Sofia)

“I don’t wanna.” (Furiae)

I immediately rejected it.

Princess Sofia sighed.

“Right, the Moon Country people have negative emotions towards the Sun Country. I am sure it wouldn’t go well… Noel-sama offered to assist though…” (Sofia)

“I won’t borrow the help of the Sun Country or that woman.” (Furiae)

I said bluntly. 

It is completely unnecessary. 

I definitely won’t have the help of the Sun Country and the Goddess Church that has been oppressing devilkin.

“Furiae…you and Noel-sama are this generation’s Holy Maidens, you know? Wouldn’t it be better to get along a little bit bet—” (Sofia)

“Not in a million years!” (Furiae)

“Haaah…I see. Well, I am not in a position to tell you what to do. By the way, is that because of the Light Hero-sama?” (Sofia)

“…”

I could feel my eyebrows twitch at the words of Princess Sofia.

When I looked at her eyes, I could see that she was giving me a questioning look.

“Princess Sofia…I will tell you one thing. The one I want by my side when the Moon Country is back in form is…My Knight. No one else.” (Furiae)

I felt my cheeks heat up while I said this.

Princess Sofia looked at me with an ice-like smile at what I said with all my courage.

“Oh my, it is just like Lucy-san and Aya-san told me. You have become quite honest, Furiae.” (Sofia)

“…T-That’s right. Got a problem?” (Furiae)

“No, I don’t. But…” (Sofia)

Princess Sofia said straight.

“Hero Makoto is my fiance, the fiance of the Water Country’s princess. I won’t allow you to be the one at his side.” (Sofia)

She smiled at me elegantly, and I let out an ‘ugh’ and choked on my words.

“By the way, I have brought the teaching staff of the Water Country today. I have heard that the devilkin children don’t get a decent education.” (Sofia)

“Y-Yeah. I will guide you to where the children are…” (Furiae)

I guide Princess Sofia and her bodyguards.

On the way, I glanced at the profile of Princess Sofia.

A face filled with confidence.

(Is this the confidence of the legal wife…?) (Furiae)

I don’t feel like I can confront her at all.

I sighed inside my heart.

◇◇

I spoke with Princess Sofia about a number of plans for the future, and consulted with her about the workforce that will be needed.

It seems like she will arrange for them immediately.

I really can’t thank her enough.

“How about resting at least for one day…?” (Furiae)

I said, but…

“No, I have other work to do. I don’t mind getting my sleep in the flying ship.” (Sofia)

Saying this, she returned to Rozes on the flying ship of the royal family. 

That figure of hers doing exhaustive work aloofly reminds me of My Knight who trains without sleeping.

Kuh, they kinda fit each other which irritated me.

-In the evening.

The sun was already going down so it was dark.

Monsters get active at night, so it is a dangerous time.

Because of that, there’s lookouts on shifts.

I should go give my appreciation for their work.

The moment I thought this, the people of the city began to make a ruckus.

“Ooi! The Hero-sama and Witch-sama have returned!” 

“Really?! What did they hunt down this time around?!” 

“Wow, I have never seen something like that!” 

“What? What?” 

“Let’s go!!” 

The people began to run to the outside of the city. 

I head in that same direction.

A crowd of people formed outside.

“What’s this…?” (Furiae)

What was lying down outside the city was the corpse of a giant dragon.

The Moon Country has a lot of monsters, so dragons aren’t rare, but that size is abnormal.

Isn’t this dragon bigger than our city? 

Something like this was close to the city?

“An Ancient Dragon!!!” 

“If the materials of this guy were to be sold, you could play around for seven generations…” 

“No, how do you even defeat something like this?” 

“It would definitely be impossible unless it is those two…” 

In front of the Ancient Dragon’s corpse, there’s a familiar red haired elf and a girl in an attire like that of a town girl.

“Oi, Furi! We are back!” 

“I am tired~. Fu-chan, I want to take a bath~.” 

Lucy-san and Aya-san waved their hands at me.

I hurriedly ran towards them.

“Wait! What’s this? Weren’t you just going to drive away the monsters that were close to the city?!” (Furiae)

Lucy-san and Aya-san have taken the job of hunting the monsters close to the city.

If I remember correctly, they said a few days ago ‘we will defeat the monsters around here!’.

“Hmm, we were defeating the pack of monsters, and there was someone who was giving them orders.” (Lucy)

“And then there was a guy who gave orders to the one giving orders. Then, as we defeated them in order, in the end, a giant dragon came out, Fu-chan.” (Aya)

“Ah, the biggest one was this one, so we only brought this one back, but we also defeated all the monsters that were in his turf, so can you get the materials later?” (Lucy)

The Moon Country’s people nodded at the two.

“Uhm, how many monsters were there…?” 

One of them asked nervously. 

“Around a thousand, was it, Aya?” (Lucy)

“Weren’t there a bit more, Lu-chan?” (Aya)

“““……”””

Everyone was at a loss for words.

Including me.

“Alright, we are drinking today!” (Lucy)

“A bath before that! Fu-chan, you come too!” (Aya)

“O-Okay…” (Furiae)

I followed the two while pulled by Aya.

There’s normally no one who would be able to speak to me casually since I am a Holy Maiden.

But even when these two act familiar with me, no one complains.

Or more like, they can’t.

Even if all the devilkin here were to join forces, they wouldn’t be a match for Lucy-san and Aya-san.

The two stalwart fighters that wiped out the many monsters that were acting as they pleased in the ruins of the Moon Country. 

The Red Haired Witch and the Small Hero Girl.

There’s no one in this city that doesn’t know of Lucy-san and Sa-san.

◇◇

“Puhaaah, I am back to life!” (Lucy)

Lucy-san was sitting cross-legged on the chair, and chugged down the ale in one go.

She has gotten hearty lately. 

Like she has gotten sturdier. 

That seems to be the same for Aya-san.

“Lu-chan has gotten cool lately. A girl confessed to her not that long ago.” (Aya)

“Eh? Really?!” (Furiae)

I was surprised.

“Aah, the girl that I saved from a pack of griffons, right? Falling in love with just that much is…” (Lucy)

“I see…” (Furiae)

She is like My Knight Makoto.

“That’s not good, Lu-chan. Sending loving glances to girls other than me.” (Aya)

“How stupid. There’s no way I would be swayed by other women aside from Aya, right?” (Lucy)

“Kya, Lu-chan, so cool! Take me!” (Aya)

“I won’t let you sleep tonight~.” (Lucy)

Aya-san and Lucy-san hugged and flirted around.

These two get along so well the whole time, it is envying.

Seeing my expression, the two turned at me and went ‘‘Hm?’’.

“Furi, not feeling well?” (Lucy)

“It would be nice if Fu-chan could go on adventures together with us though.” (Aya)

These two are always the ones who worry about me.

At the time when My Knight Makoto was still here.

It is so nostalgic and heartrending.

“I am doing well. I am just a bit busy, that’s all.” (Furiae)

I smile faintly.

It isn’t a lie.

My times talking without any worries are relaxing times for me.

When I talk to these two, I get more energetic.

We enjoyed dinner while having casual talks.

“Right right, we are thinking about going on an expedition for a while.” (Lucy)

“E-Expedition?” (Furiae)

Lucy-san suddenly said this.

“It seems the Ancient Dragon that we defeated was the boss of the monsters around here. That’s why there’s no strong monsters now. It won’t serve as training, so Lu-chan said we should go find strong monsters.” (Aya)

“I-I see…” (Furiae)

I felt sad at what Aya-san said.

Going on an expedition means that the two will be leaving the Moon Country. 

I am sure they will be gone for more than a month.

…I will be lonely.

No, I can’t be complaining here.

I am the representative of the Moon Country.

I have to do my best even if alone.

“And so, we were thinking about clearing Laberintos where Makoto and I went in the past. Aya knows about it in detail, so she can be the guide.” (Lucy)

“Rather than saying ‘know in detail’, I was born in Laberintos, Lucy.” (Aya)

“Right…we are going to Laberintos.” (Lucy)

I felt heavier at the words of the two.

Laberintos is a dungeon in Rozes.

There’s the Moon Country, then the Sun Country, and at the other side of that there’s the Water Country.

It is not a distance that they can easily just go and return.

“And so, we will be leaving the Moon Country for 3 days, so be well.” (Lucy)

Lucy-san said as if nothing.

“Huh? 3 days?” (Furiae)

Did she just say 3 days?

Not 3 months?

“Yeah. We will move with Teleport, then spend two days in Laberintos, and repeat.” (Lucy)

“The Teleport of Lu-chan is so handy~. It is an instant no matter where we want to go.” (Aya)

“…”

Right.

Lucy-san is now one of the few prominent Teleport users of the continent.

Moreover, as My Knight Makoto says, she has ‘bottomless mana’.

“T-Then, you will only be away for 3 days…?” (Furiae)

“Yeah. Cause it would be bad if the strong monsters of the Demonic Continent were to attack this city, right?” (Lucy)

“If you are in trouble, call us at once, okay?! We will come flying!” (Aya)

Lucy-san and Aya-san smile as if saying ‘ain’t that obvious?!’.

How reliable.

My insecurities and loneliness were blown away completely.

…My Knight Makoto…your comrades are here, so I am okay. 

I am sure Laphroaig will manage to come back.

I will be waiting for you in the new Moon Country. 

(That’s why…make sure to come back.) (Furiae)

I didn’t say that out loud, but I etched it in my heart.

    1. Correct me if I am wrong, but does this mean that aya and Lucy have each other their first time since go at it every night and that they got over makoto romanticly leaving only Sofia and fu-Chan in the running for his wife position, also that now makoto is the only classmate left that’s a virgin? If so well that’s what happens when you don’t make a move lost 2 lovers due to inaction

      1. Probably they just being groping and touching each other. Not to the point where they would lose they v-card. As they both of them promise each other they would lose their v-card to makoto, I mean 3 of them (thresome). I think it was mentioned, if remember correctly. Anyways your not wrong thou but logically speaking, just how two girls would satisfy themselves without a thing that insert to it( this just opinion😂). Lastly they didn’t leave makoto romantically they just waiting for him actually. They flirting to fill the gap, and being too lonely and sad for makoto leaving. And the only wife position is sofia since she the legally engaged(fiancé) which would fu-chan can’t fight with him for the position of a wife.

        They didn’t lose they feelings to makoto they just kinda like understanding each other. Are just waiting for him to come back.

    2. Ah okay I get you it just seemed like they moved on from makoto since they said no one could sway her heart like aya, I assumed in the month they moved on and fell for each other and did the deed with eachother leaving the other two girls in the running. If they did I would have felt bad for makoto since he’s wanting to come back to be with them and it would be too painful for him to come back just to be NTR by his own love interest

    1. You shouldn’t underestimate Sofia, the legal wife. She is one of the women who can restrain Makoto from doing crazy things. However, she won’t resist him if he push her down. In fact, he should have already done that ! An airheaded gigolo herbivore !

  3. Thanks for the chapter!

    Oh my god, Makoto, Lucy and Aya are safe. You need no worry about them. As for lover, well, you need no worry either about stolen away because they are already one, i guess.

    “I won’t let you sleep tonight!”

    Ah dear, i can’t resist imagining on what would happens!

    *cough cough* Anyway
    Sofia and Furiae’s san quarrel seems very similar to Nina and ‘who’s the other wife of Fuji-yan again’ at their first meeting (yeah i forgot her name lol).
    Hopefully she could get along in the future. Makoto definitely wouldn’t want to see his wives quarreling all the time xD

    Also, Sofia back then said that she’s kinda evious of how charming Furiae is, and now Furiae is envious of how Sofia and Makoto really made a kind of a pair? They’re both envious of each other all this time! Well, Makoto’s natural airheaded should take care of it like it’s nothing anyway

      1. Especially considering that right now, all those rumors about Makoto being the lover of the Great Sage? More or less confirmed now. You really have to wonder what the people would think when they find out that not only is Momo smitten to hell, but Makoto is also her savior.

Or give spoils to her, for business prospects, and own All finances of present’s merchant’ country.

      3. Yep, both Sofi and Furi should be more on guard if they remember his interactions with Momo they witnessed and where(when) he was sent. Sage-chan already accepted his “joke” about night crawling, his headpats… And now in her younger self she obviously will be imprinted on. And she would be prone to youthful mistakes of maiden-in-love….
        …wonder if she is out there to fetch/defrost Makoto by now(ye, that ‘mission’)…

        Like

      1. In the battlefield of women, position and power don’t matter as much as aggressiveness. I doubt they won’t say anything if Momo goes deredere on him. Plus that’s because they thought there was nothing romantic in between them, that Great Sage only sees him as food but if he returns and he greets Great Sage as Momo, they know something is up.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. But see, position does matter. Among the things bothering Sofia when she saw Makoto being fed on earlier was because Great Sage is…, Great Sage. Her really scary, strict teacher who would beat up Geralt when he’s being bratty. The really scary vampire who was part of the legendary party. Now if she were to sense that Momo is another harem member, she might feel threatened, but what can she do about it? If Momo wanted to, she can very well bully all of Rozes into accepting her replacing Sofia as the first fiancee, at that point Sofia’s only backing that could work is Eir. Remember that she almost couldn’t win except with sheer stubbornness when the enemy was just Janet, and Momo is way, way higher than Janet.

      2. Where as I demand harems have Yuri in it… or rather you could call it polyamory. Rather than just Makoto at the center, I like if the girls love each other too.

    Why couldn’t you say this before he left?!? This is the equivalent of my parents aren’t home. He’ll finish his mission in a week if you said this hahaha.

    I kind of half-expected the time in present to be slower or stopped. I imagined when Makoto returns it was still in the meeting of sending a hero back in time but apparently time flows the same too.

    And Lucy and Aya too are improving huh. I feel like at this rate, they might surpass the original legendary party. Nice to see the legal wife too. Nothing beats the confidence of knowing you’re his first wife.

    And the subjugation of the Great Demon Lord is still not happening. Why do I feel like Ira is delaying it so that when they do subjugate the Great Demon Lord and lose, Makoto’s gonna come and save the day. They already said back then that Ibliss still haven’t got his true strength back. It would have been wiser to attack him then and there. I feel like she’s waiting for his return too.

    1. It’s time travel. The flow of time is gonna be all wibbly wobbly. For Makoto he’s only been in the past for like a week so far while in the present a month has passed. I won’t even be surprised if Makoto comes back in the three days when Lucy and Sa-san go explore Laberintos and like find him in suspended animation or something in there. Meanwhile from Makoto’s perspective he may have spent an entire year or more in the past.

      Like

      1. I forgot to consider its time travel. He spent three days with Momo roaming around the farm. Based on Abel’s escape in prison and Momo getting captured, it seemed like it happened within the span of two days starting from setting Abel free. Recently, it took them seven days to travel Laberintos and then a day to rest all of which equals to 13-14 days. It seems like time is twice as fast in present assuming this are correct.

        Like

      2. The thing about time travel is you can pick the point to go to, Makoto could spend years in the past and return within less then a year due to being slightly inaccurate. Theres no rule that says the time just must be exactly the same amount and thus wait for his duration in the past, the author can make his adventure take as long as he wants and return him to whatever time he wants. The parallel passage of time really only applies to diffrent worlds/realms/dimensions with diffrent passages of time in the present

        Like

      3. Definitely more than a week, since that’s how long it took for the travel to Laberintos. Combined with the earlier looking around for Abel, and the earlier wandering around when he still hasn’t met Momo yet, it’s been anywhere between two weeks to a month for Makoto.

        Like

      4. I think that Makoto would expend one year in the past while carrying on his mission to save Abel and travel with him, so meanwhile he does that he probably will search for a way to go back to the future, or after he departs from Momo and Abel side and after that he would take some time finding how to do it, travel forward in time, sleeping for a thousand years or something else, but that’s the point, he would go back a thousand years, meaning that the time he spent in the past would summarize to the way he takes to go back, so i don’t think nothing would happen in the world of the present time, like the star of a war, so let’s see how the world goes without him, and see how he would be recived when he comes back as one of the members of the legendary party that saved the world.

        And most importantly, I wonder, there have been people that have become Noah’s believers???

    1. In the past chapters where the legend of Abel was described aside from Momo there is another that should be living , the ancient dragon so the dragon might be waiting, It might even be possible the reason why they don’t show up is they are guarding Makoto in Stasis or whatever means of return Makoto would take.

    Like

    1. That means a month have passed in Makoto’s perspective too. Time flows the same probably. Assuming he’ll come back using time spirits, he’ll want to come back following the same time he left i.e 1000 years later.

      Like

      1. I think that if Makoto is going back to the future with Time magic, he most likely will be setting the time from 1000 years from the ‘current’ day towards the future, that way any and all of development that occurred since he went to the past would still be valid. Otherwise is a waste of time to develop the ‘present’.

    2. Well, on the flip side, why would he immediately come back either? It’s not like we know how he’s going to come back, nor the accuracy of his method. If it has a possible deviation of even one percent for example, he could very well only be back after ten years regardless of what he wants. Now that’s probably not going to happen, since ten years is a long time for things to move on, but food for thought.

    The character of Lucy hadn’t suddenly changed to much? I now that a bit ago she was changing because of the bad influence of his mother, but now it feels to strange, to different.

    1. Lucy has been developing a fondness for drinking for a while now. Other than that, it doesn’t seem to me that she’s changed much. The only notable difference is that there is no Makoto for her to hang on to right now, which allows more of her personality unrelated to Makoto to show.

      As for Momo…, it’s not like she has any particular motivation to say anything to anyone, so why would she? And it’s neither like we know if Makoto hasn’t given her any instructions to stay hush or something.

      1. Well, I was not to clear I suppose with the thing about Momo, what I mean is that I don’t understand how if the past is already settle in the present the time still advance as if is uncertain if Makoto succeed or not, maybe this way is more clear what I don’t understand? I’m not really good in writing in english so I don’t know for sure if what I want to say is transmitted. And his personal feelings aside, Momo have to say to the others that Makoto is alive (assuming that obviously he is inside the coffin) for the simple fact that she know that Makoto wouldn’t forgive her if because of that he can’t reunite with the others again. The only reason I can think is that she is hidding Makoto as a triumph card against the revived Great Demon Lord.

        And with Lucy I don’t say that because of driking, but more because of his “maculine?” “to carefree?” “violent?” I’m not sure how exactly describe the feeling, it’s just that now she seems to much like his mother, I know that before had already been said that she is slowly becoming more like his mother, but compared with when Makoto was here the change is to much and feel to sudden, I suppose that with a month without Makoto that could happen, but still feel just strange.

      2. Right, so if I got it right, the crux of it goes something like : why does everyone and everything proceed as if the past hasn’t changed? Well, likely for the same reason why the first meddling with the past didn’t immediately undo the fact that humans have been saved a thousand years before. That is, it’s apparent that the effects of history a changing needs time to catch up with the present, which is why rather than human countries immediately ret-goned, we only get stuff like the statue’s color changing, and Sofia suddenly mentioning Abel as Hero Abel instead of Savior.

        And I’m still not seeing how Momo is under any obligation to share anything about the past to anyone. Unless doing so is a requirement to get him to return, then whether or not she said anything doesn’t change Makoto’s ability to return. And we certainly haven’t gotten any information that points towards the necessity of her telling anyone anything. Makoto has already promised Lucy, that’s all the reason Lucy needs to wait, the same goes for the others.

        Now with regards to Lucy, I personally still don’t really see any big changes to her personality, but maybe that’s just me. It seems more like when she’s with Makoto, she doesn’t seem as brash because she’s always been trusting of Makoto, and thus obediently hanging on to his words. But Lucy has always been rather brash and relatively tomboy IMO. Essentially, at the start she tempers her brashness around Makoto because she didn’t want him to kick her out of the party like she’s been kicked out of parties before, and it carries over for a long time, so we only really see that brashness surface again when Makoto isn’t around.

  9. Furi and Sofia are battling it out to see who will be top waifu it seems. Well it seems more good natured and it’s not like they actually hate each other and both accept being in Makoto’s harem.

    Lucy and Sa-san have gotten really strong if just them alone defeated not only an Ancient Dragon the size of a city but also 1000 other monsters. By the time Makoto gets back, they’ll have unlocked Ultra Instinct or something >.>

    Oh like Lucy can say anything about the girl that confessed to her after saving her from griffons. Lucy herself also fell for Makoto after he saved her from a griffon. Anyways I approve of the yurification between Sa-san and Lucy.

    Why do I get the feeling that Lucy and Sa-san will discover Makoto in suspended animation or something while trying to conquer Laberintos? I mean since there’s time travel involved then Makoto have done everything he needs to do in the past by the time the 3 days Lucy and Sa-san will take in the present to conquer Laberintos. Like maybe Makoto will leave some clue in Laberintos in a location he knows Lucy and Sa-san might visit instructing them on where he is or whatever.

    1. I mean nothing has disproven that theory yet. Who says he has to wake up the moment he’s transferred to the past anyways? It could be that if he took say, a year I’m the past then he’d only wake a year after he was sent to the past or something like that. Or maybe his alarm clock is borked after a thousand years.

    2. I mean if he’s really frozen in that coffin, then that means he’s in Momo’s care. If she unfreezes him, he’ll be back with Ty e rest of his harem again. It’s therefore in Momo’s best interest to leave him frozen in her bed room until she finally has to give him back.

  10. Ah yes, one of the two unnumbered chapters, side stories that would have prolonged our cliff-hanging suffering. Still, it’s nice to see Furiae being honest to her feelings.

    Still, one wonders what would happen if Makoto really does put in most of the work in freeing the past in Abel’s place, like everyone has been expecting. That is, what would happen when he returns? I kind of doubt Althena would stop at just giving Noah more freedom, she seems too conscientious to not throw in additional rewards, especially since she seem to regret not being able to just free Noah outright. Of particular concern is the earlier Hero Abel-Savior dissociation. If Abel really does end up known as a hero with the Savior being someone whose name is lost to history…, and then Makoto end up being pronounced the Savior when he returns, I doubt Sofia would remain the primary fiancee for long.

    And now Aya and Lucy are killing ancient dragons casually. I still remember back when Lucy was cornered by an ogre too, how far she’s come now that she can even teleport casually. As ever the Yuri is strong with those two, I suspect once they’re married Makoto’s schedule with Lucy and Aya would be with both together ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    1. Don’t look down on the resolution and feelings of the legal wife ! Also, Eir just needs to give an oracle that bless Sofia as the legal wife of Makoto. Moreover, if there are people who aim for Makoto, they should pass through Momo(the individual who has the highest authority in Highland, the strongest country) and Furiae (the most beautiful mortal woman in the world and a Holy Maiden on top of that).

      Like

      1. Well see : what if Momo wants to be the legal wife? What if a Holy Maiden, pronounced so by Althena herself in person, wants to contend for that position as well? Really, only Eir can be a reasonable backing for Sofia, but I kinda doubt she’d be able to forcefully push her into the legal wife position without her sisters looking at her funny.

      3. You’re forgetting the male here. You have to get Makoto and the harem’s approval to even be a part of it. Plus they already talked about who gets to be the legal wife. Sa-san and Lucy already conceded. Furiae also acknowledged Sofia to be the legal wife in this chapter too. Regarding Momo though, I don’t think she’s that selfish. There’s also the fact that you have to be able to manage his territories too. Makoto already has his but he doesn’t manage it since Rozes handles it. Momo being the lazy person she is would probably give up the position just on that.

        Like

      4. @Asphyxia : Makoto’s approval is a non-issue. It’s been shown time and again, Makoto doesn’t get to choose his harem members, they choose him. That he’s weak to pressure and assertive approach doesn’t help. That’s how Janet almost secured her own position, only foiled by Sofia’s stubborn resistance. Regarding territory management, are you really putting it out of Momo’s capability to just dump the issue over to Highland’s royalty? I certainly believe she’s capable of that much, and willing to if she really wanted to be the legal wife. You think she isn’t that selfish, but when it comes to love I won’t cross out the possibility.

        Regarding Furiae, IMO it’s more that she’s mostly accustomed to losing which is why she’s so quick to admit defeat (mentally). She also hasn’t ever been really secure about her attraction since she’s so used to seeing Lucy and Aya. Give it some time though, and character development may as well lead her into becoming even more assertive.

        Essentially, I personally think that Sofia is being confident because she has to be. She’s backed by her own goddess. It doesn’t really guarantee the future, especially with the meta knowledge that Furiae was the planned main Heroine. Though a more important point has to be made : I personally think it’s unimportant to us as to who ends up the legal wife, it’s mostly only relevant for the local politics. What IS important is for the author to stay their course and not stray away from the harem end.

        Like

      5. Makoto’s approval is an issue. Otherwise he wouldn’t have rejected the nobles proposals. Sofia wasn’t the only reason why Janet was rejected too, Makoto said was he was already engaged to Sofia. The harem works together with Makoto in making sure the good girls pass. Kind of like a screening test. While Makoto by himself would accept them so there’s that loophole a thousand years ago where there’s no one to manage Makoto.

        Great Sage herself said that she’s bad at tactics and she doesn’t show signs at being great at management. It’s true she could just dump the work to others but you really think Momo the deredere loli will do that?

        Furiae IMO is not quick to admit defeat quite the opposite actually. She’s a sore loser in my eyes such as when she still tried to charm Makoto even after knowing it was useless and when she teases Noel at the beginning. When it comes to beauty, I do agree she’s not as confident as she did in the beginning. Mainly because of Makoto.

        I do think a good harem end is what’s important too. Just make Makoto and the harem happy and I’ll accept.

    2. Maybe Savior Abel’s fame gets split between Abel and Makoto. I mean even if Makoto does most of what history attributes to Abel, Abel still has the Light Hero Skill needed to beat Iblis. Just call them the Twin Saviors or something. Meanwhile history might record Makoto as a Water Hero since he clearly uses water magic and he’s going around sacrificing demons to Eir so maybe that might bring up Rozes standing to be equal to Highland’s.

      1. Well, that’d still stick half the Savior title on Makoto. And unlike Abel who the people just presumed as being reborn into Sakurai, Makoto is there, in the flesh. It’s like the whole Great Sage situation, only much more complicated, especially with the whole “Noah’s Apostle” stuff complicating things further. In any case, so many complications to look forward to.

  11. Althena and the Holy Gods will owe Makoto a huge debt so maybe they’ll lift the Spirit King ban? Or maybe Althena herself will be the reward. At the very least, maybe he can ask a favor to them.

    I don’t think it will be known to the public that Makoto was the savior. The author likes foreshadowing and a particular one is Makoto’s game where the hero saved the world from the Demon King but nobody knew of him. Maybe this only refers to before he went back in time. Maybe he’ll have to save them again in the present and fight the Great Demon Lord again to save Sakurai and then they’ll know. The aftermath of that would be epic. Makoto is a free spirit (pun intended) and likes Rozes so I doubt that he’ll change his fiancee.

    Why have two of them together when you can have all of them at the same time or one by one everyday? Competition on who satisfies him the most?

    1. Is it bad that I want Althena to be the reward? I want Althena to be the reward!

      And regarding the whole “his game as foreshadowing” thing…, at least in the LN his favorite ending was one where the hero becomes the (not a, THE) Demon Lord, think about that for a bit. And the higher ups of Highland already knows that he’s on a mission, they were there when Althena made the request. Thinking him as the savior is a small leap from there since he at least saved Abel, as per the request. It’d probably just turn into another Great Sage situation though. Makoto likes Rozes, it’s true, but he doesn’t have any particular attachment to Sofia so outside forces may still intervene. Especially if he were to be considered even half the legendary Savior. Those same outside forces will try their damnedest to not offend him, but people in power will be racing to get into his pants more than ever.

      And you know, sometimes the girls may want some alone time with him, that’s what a schedule is for. Instead, Aya and Lucy might actually prefer to be with Makoto and the other. They can schedule a separate day for the family to gather together ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      3. >the girls may want some alone time with him
        Personally I’m picturing a very large bed. And if we get any more situations like Lucy/Aya, that bed becomes a more interesting place. Polyamory basically 😉

        Time alone could be served by individual dates. Looks like Aya and Lucy would be going on their own dates with each other too. Scheduling dates is fine. But nighttime I think should be more dynamic, not scheduled/scripted in any way.

        Now Sakurai’s nighttime is sadly scheduled for him. That’s entirely lacking in romance and passion. He doesn’t exactly seem happy about the situation, and I doubt the various women are either. Love making shouldn’t be a chore/duty that one is scheduled to perform. I feel sorry for Sakurai for this reason. I don’t think Makoto and the girls should follow that model.

      4. Now see, the problem is, if there isn’t any sort of organization, the girls could very well be dissatisfied, feeling like one is favored over the other.

        It’s really a matter of how it’s done and for what. Sakurai is basically just a glorified sperm donor for most of his ‘wives’, himself seemingly only really caring about his two classmates and Noel, and his feelings are returned in kind by both the people he cares for and the ones he care nothing for.

        Meanwhile, as regards Makoto, it’s basically an idea on how to maintain balance and not hurt the girls’ feelings. Naturally if they feel like something else can work better, it’d be done. But the essence of my point remains : I suspect that Aya-Lucy will be a package deal, and Makoto better have some way to deal with his own endurance. Since unfortunately he’s quite unlike, and is rather the opposite, of the other Makoto.

      1. Yeah, but nothing really says that there needs to be a change in residence. Especially not if the issue arose because he’s acknowledge as the (half-)Savior. They may very well allow whoever the fiancée is to just follow him, only providing additional residence near the girl’s origins.

        Also, I think there’s a place where Makoto would definitely consider if he were to be offered a new residence : wherever that place is that’s the entry to Noah’s prison, which currently serve as a resort of sort. Having a residence there means easy access to his rescue attempts.

  19. Hmm.

    Well firstly, it’s nice to see all the girls doing well. Furiae is in a bit of a funk, but the rest of Takki’s party ended up inspired by him and kept pushing forward like they’re on a rampage.
    Sophia’s gotten quite confident and strong in her own way, Lucy’s bulked up and rounded out as a top-class magician, and Sa-san………….Well okay, Sa-san hasn’t really changed that much besides probably a good power-leveling.
    Hang in there, girls.

    But more importantly…a month passed, huh? I assumed that Takki would be back within a few days at most, considering we’re dealing with time travel. Whether it’s hibernating for a thousand years via Momo, or using Time Spirits with his crazy proficency.

    Well, I guess there’s the fact that he’ll have aged a bit if he does that. But if that’s an issue, it feels like it’ll be at least a solid year or two before he can come back, since the journey of “The Savior Abel” is definitely an uphill battle that’ll take many struggles.
    Can he at least stay in touch via Ira or Momo?

  20. Well this was interesting. I was wondering if when he finds whatever method to return to the present, if he would just appear the moment he left or not. Looks like there’s a delay where the girls have to wait. I’m betting Makoto, Ira and Momo schemed something. Probably want the devils to think he’s gone for good before he makes a dramatic comeback at the climactic moment. Rather, if the coffin theory is correct, then doesn’t Momo have him on ice ready to be defrosted whenever they’re ready?
    The other question is Abel. The fact that he apparently vanished after saving the world leaving the Holy Maiden to found the Sun country alone is suspicious. Noel seemed to think the promise he spoke about was with another woman, but what if it was with Makoto? If he follows Makoto to the present are we gonna have another guy in the harem? That’s something to worry about.
    I’m also really curious how long he’s going to follow Abel. Is he just going to keep it up until he helps Abel realise his true potential, brings the hero party together and is sure they’re bound to win? And just believe in that and head back to the present (somehow) or will he watch over from the shadows to make sure it all goes perfect? So many questions.
    Normally I don’t comment anymore, but this novel has me so hooked and need to do something to abate the cravings………

Aya: Makoto’s quest for adventure and danger. Sophia: Makoto’s aloofness and workaholic personality. Furiae: Makoto’s lust and heroine qualities. Ira: Makoto’s airheaded and clumsy self.
