WM – Chapter 245: Takatsuki Makoto is bewildered by Abel

“Makoto-san, let’s train in sun magic!” (Abel)

“O-Okay.” (Makoto)

The amount of times Hero Abel speaks to me since yesterday has increased. 

The second day since we began travelling. 

Today the weather was bad, so we ended up camping early. 

While we were searching for a place to escape the wind and rain, Mel-san said ‘what a pain’ and made a house with wood magic.

What’s with that? That’s super convenient. 

After we finished eating, it was now free time…or not. We decided to train.

“Here, little one. We are going to train on teleport. First, have an accurate grasp of your own coordinates and the coordinates you want to teleport to. If you mess this up, you will end up being sent outside the planet.” (Mel)

“I-I don’t even understand what you are saying!” (Momo)

“Let me show you first. You try to copy that after.” (Mel)

“Eeh?! There’s no detailed explanation?!” (Momo)

“Don’t think, feel!” (Mel)

“That’s impossible!” (Momo)

Mel-san is teaching Momo magic.

I don’t understand advanced destiny magic, but I can hear a high level sounding conversation. 

I’m so jealous.

“Makoto-san, I will synchronize with you now and use sun magic, so get a feel of it, okay?” (Abel)

“O-Okay…Abel-san.” (Makoto)

So close.

I was a bit flustered by the change of his attitude.

“That’s not it, Makoto-san.” (Abel)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

“I told you to call me Anna when in this form.” (Anna)

“Y-Yes, Anna-san. I will be in your care.” (Makoto)

“Yes! Same here, Makoto-san.” (Anna)

Hero Abel was all smiles in front of me…I mean, Holy Maiden Anna.

Right, Abel is currently in her female form.

“Why…are you in that form?” (Makoto)

“When I am using magic, it is easier in my Heaven Winged Folk form.” (Anna)

“The Heaven Winged Folk are a race that excel in magic. They wouldn’t fall behind demons.” (Mel)

Mel-san commented while she was instructing Momo.

As expected from the knowledgeable Mel-san.

“I see…” (Makoto)

I observe the winged Anna in front of me.

I have said it several times already, but she is the spitting image of Princess Noel.

Her way of speaking and her gestures are different, but I can’t help but be reminded of the princess of Highland. 

I find it hard to handle. 

“Makoto-san, is there something on my face?” (Anna)

“Ah…” (Makoto)

Oops.

Seems like I was looking at her face too much.

After pondering for a bit, I decided to be honest. 

“You look similar to an acquaintance of mine.” (Makoto)

“An acquaintance?” (Anna)

It is not a lie.

I can’t tell her it is her descendant. 

Anna then placed a finger on her cheek and went ‘hmm’.

When her gender changes, the air around her is different from Abel. 

She must have thought of something, she made a teasing face.

“Could it be that it is the ‘person you like’, Makoto-san?” (Anna)

She directed a gaze as if peeking through me.

“Eh?! Master! What does that mean?!” (Momo)

“Oi, little one! You are in the middle of training.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san couldn’t stop Momo, and she jumped here.

“You like beauties like Anna-sama?!” (Momo)

Momo pushes on over here as if agitated.

“M-Momo-chan?! I am not a beauty!” (Anna)

Anna-san hurriedly denies it.

I sighed.

I agree that Anna-san is beautiful, but that’s not it.

“Anna-san looks similar to a fiance of a childhood friend of mine.” (Makoto)

“What… So that’s what it was.” (Anna)

Anna mutters as if unamused.

“I-I see… Master doesn’t have a girlfriend after all.” (Momo)

“What?” (Makoto)

Momo placed a hand on her chest in relief.

That’s rude.

“I do have.” (Makoto)

Lucy, who I promised to return to, is my girlfriend.

Sa-san, Sofia, and Princess…wait, there’s a lot.

I should not say the names and numbers.

For some reason, I felt that was for the best.

“““?!”””

I don’t know why, but the 3 made shocked expressions.

What’s with that?

“Makoto-san…it is not like I am doubting you, but…is it true that you have a girlfriend?” (Anna)

“Why are you doubting me?” (Makoto)

“Cause you know…” (Anna)

Anna fidgets as if finding it hard to say.

I am not lying here that I am in a relationship.

I am a Country Designated Hero in the future. 

I was pretty decently popular…I think.

“You are a [Virgin], so that Heaven Winged Folk there was trying to say that maybe you are just putting a front here.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-san muttered this.

“Wa?!” (Makoto)

Why do they know that?! 

“That’s right! I have been taught about vampires by White Dragon Master! The taste of Master is special! A mellow scent and a texture like velvet; that’s the taste of a virgin!” (Momo)

“Oi.” (Makoto)

Don’t go into such pointless detail like a connoisseur. 

What’s even velvet texture?! 

And what about the one who gave unnecessary knowledge to Momo…?

I glared at Mel-san, and she averted her gaze.

“That’s right. Our King has a pure body. He hasn’t partaken in any dirty acts.” (Dia)

Even the Great Water Spirit came out. 

Y-You people…! 

Even with Clear Mind, I was trembling.

“Why does everyone know?!” (Makoto)

This is the loudest I have shouted since coming to the past.

◇◇

– Holders of Appraisal: White Dragon-san and Holy Maiden Anna.

– Can tell from drinking the blood: Great Sage-sama Momo.

– Can somewhat tell: Great Water Spirit Dia.

According to my investigation, it seems my virginity was clear as day. 

There was no privacy with these people…

Or more like, what’s that about ‘can somewhat tell’, Dia…

“P-Please don’t get angry, Makoto-san…” (Anna)

“I am not angry.” (Makoto)

Anna had come talk to me nervously while I was hanging my head down. 

I recovered from the shock and decided to continue training.

We continued training for a while in silence.

There was no conversation, so I was the one who spoke.

“It is unfair that I am the only one getting my secret exposed, so tell me a secret of yours too, Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“My secret?” (Anna)

When I said this with narrowed eyes, she moved her head restlessly as if flustered.

“U-Uhm…then, I have the Sun Oracle Skill!” (Anna)

“Yeah, you do.” (Makoto)

I know.

Or more like, even toddlers would know that the Holy Maiden Anna is a Sun Oracle in the future.

“You are not surprised at all!” (Anna)

“Anything else?” (Makoto)

“Uuuh…something else, huh.” (Anna)

“Now that I think about it…” (Makoto)

I suddenly noticed.

Holy Maiden Anna = Hero Abel; that skill that she should have.

I have not heard her say it properly. 

“Can you please tell me what Skills you have, Anna-san? All of them.” (Makoto)

“Y-Yeah…I don’t mind.” (Anna)

I heard the name of powerful Skills one after the other from Anna’s mouth.

“That’s all.” (Anna)

“Any other?” (Makoto)

“Eh? No, it is only those.” (Anna)

“Can you confirm once again? Please look at your Soul Book properly.” (Makoto)

“O-Okay, got it. …Eh?!” (Anna)

The eyes of Anna opened wide.

“L-Light Hero Skill… Just what in the world is this?” (Anna)

“So you do.” (Makoto)

The magic sword that managed to cut away the sacred treasure armor of Demon Lord Cain.

The rainbow shining blade

A rainbow light signifies God Rank or power corresponding to God Rank.

It is just as Althena-sama taught me.

The only one who can use that magic sword is the Light Hero.

“Makoto-san! How did you know I had a new Skill?!” (Anna)

“Hm? Uhm…” (Makoto)

Anna closed in with an incredibly threatening attitude.

“An oracle from Althena-sama.” (Makoto)

“…Makoto-san, do you think I will believe anything if you just say that?” (Anna)

“Not really.” (Makoto)

I shook a bit there.

Abel/Anna-san is gullible after all.

I thought that it would be okay if I just said it was an oracle.

“Makoto-san, is the oracle thing true? Aren’t you hiding something from me?” (Anna)

For some reason, it ended up with me being interrogated.

This is not good.

“A-Ask Althena-sama about it then. You are the Sun Oracle after all.” (Makoto)

The Oracle can hear the voice of their God.

It may be a story of the future, but it is without doubt the truth that I did receive the words from Althena-sama. 

It would be faster to just confirm with the person herself.

“That’s…I can’t do it.” (Anna)

“Why?” (Makoto)

I could somewhat tell, but I still ask in case.

“The Pitch Black Clouds…are covering the sky, so the light of the sun doesn’t reach, and I can’t hear the voice of the Sun Goddess Althena-sama… I am a useless Oracle.” (Anna)

She lowered her head dejected.

Looks like she is depressed by this.

“Then, it can’t be helped. Once there’s the chance, try asking her. There’s no doubt I received the oracle of Althena-sama, so please believe me.” (Makoto)

I try to say this in the brightest tone possible.

“Okay…” (Anna)

“We got deviated there. Let’s continue training.” (Makoto)

I say this and wrap it up.

Hero Abel being aware of her Light Hero Skill is a good thing. 

But the Light Hero Skill is like a car without gasoline when there’s no sunlight. 

We have to solve that issue. 

Just when I was thinking this…

“Uhm…about my secret…” (Anna)

Anna approached me.

Her face is a bit red.

“It is okay. You already told me your Skills, so we are even.” (Makoto)

“No…I am sorry for learning a personal secret of yours without your permission…” (Anna)

“I don’t really mind.” (Makoto)

The Great Sage-sama, the White Dragon-san, and the Great Water Spirit know it too anyways.

There’s no point in caring about it at this point… Haha…

“Uhm…I also have no experience.” (Anna)

“…?” 

For a second, I didn’t understand what she was saying.

“I am…also a virgin.” (Anna)

She whispered in my ear with her face bright red.

“…?!” (Makoto)

What is this Holy Maiden whispering to me?! 

“We match.” (Anna)

“Y-Yeah.” (Makoto)

I nodded.

“L-Let’s train!” (Anna)

“R-Right!” (Makoto)

The magic training that day felt a bit awkward.

◇◇

The next day the rain had cleared, and we aimed for our objective on the back of Mel-san.

“Let’s get down around here.” (Mel)

Mel-san says this and we landed.

When I used Farsight, I could see big ramparts afar.

The ramparts were a first, but I do recognize this area a bit.

There was no city at that time, and it was just a vast plain and ruins on the verge of collapsing.

But what was in front of us was a big fortress city, and a breathtaking castle was standing tall there.

We have arrived at the capital of the Moon Country, Cornet.

      2. Bru, Anna is technically a trap? Ow well, it depends, but history proved her left to rule the country somehow, while being frustrated that her “Abel” left.

        Yep, all in party know you are on a road to certified wizard(Makoto was supposed to be 18+ by now btw?). Try to prove them you had 4(!!) girlfriends, with 3 being in permanent proximity, and still never done anything.

        “We match”

  6. Heh, Mel’s teaching style is the same as Rosalie’s it seems. No explanations, just feelings. At least she isn’t trying to explain with sound effects. Also it’s funny how everyone is shocked when Makoto claims he has a girlfriend and don’t believe him. They think he made up a non-existent girlfriend because they all learned he’s a virgin.

    Dude’s privacy is rock-bottom.

    Oh so they actually have Soul Books? That’s unexpected. Anyways looks like I was wrong and Anna didn’t get or at least manifest the Light Hero skill in her Soul Book until Makoto came to this era. It probably didn’t manifest until she finally absorbed some sunlight just like how apparently she can’t communicate with Althena using her Oracle skill unless she is exposed to the sun.

    Anyways so Anna’s really trying to join the harem by telling Makoto she’s also a virgin like him so they match. I’m really expecting her to somehow follow Makoto to the present. Meanwhile Highland will either end up being founded by some relatives of Anna or some complete strangers who just claim to be her relatives or descendants. In these types of stories, unless a person is already a MILF or a widow then they will just so happen to be a virgin so they can be “pure” for their love interest. History itself never really says anything specific about Anna having descendants other than the Highland royalty claiming to carry her blood but at the same time there being no mention of her marrying anybody after Abel disappeared. Well who knows just how much of recorded history turns out to be different from the reality since we already have seen such big deviations from what was recorded like Abel and Anna being the same person. Or how Makoto’s actions are all things that will eventually be attributed to Abel like saving Momo, being super reckless and needing his companions to convince him to not rush off and finally Makoto being the one to convince (read: threaten) Mel to join his group.

  7. Anyone else reminded of that one scene in Kokoro Connect where Inaba confesses her dirty secret to her crush?

    I m*sturbated to you too – Inaba.

    Makoto is very handsome. He forgot to include Janet there. Anna is slowly breaking down Makoto’s walls into his heart. Just need a few more hand holding and kisses to seal the deal.

    Also, Clearmind-san do your job here! Makoto was trembling with it on.

  8. Well, Anna’s certainly gotten more assertive. Though that did lead to a bit of discomfort for our Makoto.
    I’m betting Noel being her descendent it a red herring somehow. To make us think she’ll be left back there when he come back to the present. Though I suppose it’s possible he’ll knock her up instead, making Noel HIS descendent…….
    Now things here will probably end up with him being the one to overthrow the moon oracle and free everybody in place of Abel as well. She’ll probably be hell bent on replacing humanity with demonkin so the race can continue and believes it the only way and won’t hear anything else. She’ll probably try to make them join up too. Unfortunately, the mind mojo doesn’t work on him~

    Thanks for the translation!

    1. Honestly? My guess is that Anna can perform asexual reproduction.

      It’s already been established that the Winged Folk are a women-only race, and yet Abel himself is considered a half-breed for having a human father and Wingfolk mother.
      The only possibilities available to us are either that half-breeds that are usually locked as one race or the other, or the Winged Folk being able to reproduce themselves.

      Well, I guess it’s also possible that they can produce children with other of their same species even though they’re both women, but I feel like at that point “women” is a misleading term since it implies a binary sex.

  12. You should probably just tell them the truth soon, Takki. You’re such an abnormality that I’m pretty sure they’d believe you. Or rather, they wouldn’t think what you’re saying is wrong.

    Huh. So the reason self-appraisal didn’t work on Abel was because the Light Hero Skill is basically God Rank. That makes sense. Can’t they charge it by flying above the clouds? Is that too high? Surely their stats (minus Takki) would be able to cope?
    Anna’s already got it bad for him. A shame. I was hoping for Sakurai 0.5 with Abel.

    Also, help a disciple out, Takki. Surely you can use water to illustrate what coordinates are with a globe or a box with an x, y, z axis?

    1. The full truth includes the fact that Makoto is a once and future apostle of the god whose apostle killed her greatest friend and mentor. So that’s gonna be awkward.
      The clouds spell is kind of absurd in it’s scope and resilience. He was working on some kind of water-magic dragon before he traveled back in time, so he’s probably thinking on it. If he can’t pull off a fiber optics hookup to the sun by now then those clouds need a nerf.

  14. It’s like hands-on coaching in tennis or golf! I wonder what Anna’s proficiency is. Probably not so high so as to subject Makoto to the feel-good aftereffects, or is it?

    Would anyone be amused if a person they’re developing a crush on compares them with someone who is another’s lover? I’d hazard a guess that the answer is no.

    How unfortunate that in the one matter Makoto would want some privacy in, Dia utterly can’t be relied on to help. Ain’t no hiding your v-card against these folks. Also Mel, you deserve to be staredad’d for that bit of education, heh.

    One wonders how exactly Dia can tell. And I suspect she’d want in on that orgy 1000 years (plus some) in the future.

    Makoto just keep on adding more and more layers of mystery on himself here. He’s completely unsurprised at “new” information, and even seem aware of new skills not even its owner is aware of. He’s really bad at keeping himself not sus, he’s probably the type to get lynched early in a game of Werewolf regardless of actual guilt.

    And Anna…, probably doesn’t know that she’s saying something that would normally be said before exchanging your respective v-cards. Put down another guest to the list for that future party called an orgy, here’s to hoping she’d make it.
