WM – Chapter 255: Hero Abel thinks about Makoto

Sponsored Chapter!


◇Hero Abel POV◇

It has been 2 days since Makoto-san and Helemerck-sama left to Laberintos.

The progress of my training doesn’t look bright. 

I pray and pray, but I don’t hear the voice of the Sun Goddess-sama. 

“Haah…” (Abel)

Right now I am swinging a wooden sword to pass time.

“Alright! I did it!” (Momo)

Momo-chan, who was close by, had succeeded in using short distance teleport.

“That’s impressive, Momo-chan. To think you would manage to obtain a new spell in such a short span of time.” (Abel)

“No, I still have a long way to go. I have to chant in order to activate it, so I can’t use it in actual combat. Master Makoto-sama told me that all magic that isn’t chantless is trash.” (Momo)

“Isn’t Makoto-san a bit too harsh?” (Abel)

I gave a bitter smile.

I think Momo-chan is pretty impressive for her age. Makoto-san is giving a high objective to her.

“Next is the Calm Skill and Stealth Skill. Also, I am a vampire, so I should be able to use Transform to turn into mist and a bat, so I have to learn that…” (Momo)

“That’s quite the peculiar training.” (Abel)

Is it okay to not learn attack spells?

Even though she has a powerful Skill like Sage.

“Master Makoto-sama told me to first obtain the Skills that will allow me to run away from strong opponents when I meet them.” (Momo)

“Even though he is that strong?” (Abel)

That’s such a conservative tactic.

“Right? But there’s no mistake in the teachings of Master Makoto-sama!” (Momo)

Momo-chan seems to have complete trust in Makoto-san’s words.

I envy that.

“You could have given me instructions too, Makoto-san…” (Abel)

Right before Makoto-san departed, I asked him what I should do.

What came back in response was ‘I leave it to you. There’s nothing I can tell you to do’.

Does he trust me?

But I want to rely on Makoto-san.

“Even though I would also listen to anything Makoto-san tells me to do…” (Abel)

“…”

When I muttered this absentmindedly, I suddenly felt a gaze.

“Momo-chan?” (Abel)

“…Why are you in female form?” (Momo)

“Eh?” 

It looks like I had turned into my form of Anna at some point in time.

“You turned into your woman form when thinking about Master Makoto-sama… Anna-san, so you really…” (Momo)

“U-Uhm, Momo-chan?” (Anna)

“Do you love Master Makoto-sama, Anna-san?” (Momo)

“Wa?!” (Anna)

I accidentally dropped my wooden sword at the question of Momo-chan.

“I knew it…” (Momo)

“T-That’s not it, Momo-chan!” (Anna)

I hurriedly flailed my hands, but Momo-chan was staring straight at me.

It was at the time when I was thinking about what to say…

A giant white dragon flew into the temple.

The White Dragon-sama. 

Makoto-san and the White Dragon-sama have returned.

When I directed my gaze there in order to welcome them, I noticed…I don’t see Makoto-san anywhere.

“White Dragon Master, welcome back.” (Momo)

“White Dragon-sama, is Makoto-san not with you?” (Anna)

“Hero-kun, come with me! The Spirit User-kun has been attacked by Demon Lord Cain!” 

The White Dragon-sama said this in a flustered tone. 

““Eh?!””

My and Momo-chan’s face stiffen at the same time.

◇◇

The White Dragon-sama and I hurriedly head to where Makoto-san is.

“Is it okay to leave Momo-chan behind?” (Anna)

She asked to come along as well with teary eyes, but the White Dragon-sama didn’t allow it. 

“It can’t be helped. We are dealing with a Demon Lord here. More importantly, do you think you can use the attack that worked on Demon Lord Cain?” (Mel)

“T-That’s…” (Abel)

I found it hard to speak.

I haven’t succeeded in doing that technique again since then.

It was sword magic that I managed to use by coincidence.

Will my swordsmanship work on Demon Lord Cain if I were to confront him once more?

“You are the only one who has managed to land an effective hit on him! We are speeding up!” (Mel)

“O-Okay!” (Abel)

I tightly held the handle of my new magic sword.

Makoto-san…please be okay.

A few moments after.

“We are here! This should be the place.” (Mel)

After the White Dragon-sama said those tense words, I looked around.

But there’s only traces of the ground being destroyed here and there with magic, I don’t see Demon Lord Cain or Makoto-san.

Could it be that Makoto-san has already…

“Look there, Hero-kun.” (Mel)

“…It is smoke.” (Abel)

I could see smoke rising from the place she pointed at.

There’s someone there.

“Let’s go.” (Abel)

“Be careful.” (Mel)

The White Dragon-sama and I walk with stealthy steps, and approach the location where the smoke is rising. 

“This smell is…” (Mel)

The White Dragon-sama furrowed her brows. 

I could see someone.

That back figure is…Makoto-san!

What a relief, he is okay.

“Oi, Spirit User-kun. What are you doing?” (Mel)

The White Dragon-sama says with a displeased tone.

She was angry for some reason.

I looked at the state of Makoto-san, and noticed the reason for that.

“Aah, Mel-san, Abel-san, I have been waiting. Wanna eat?” (Makoto)

At that place, there’s Makoto-san who was looking back while roasting filleted fish.

My strength was drained from that, and I ended up sitting in place.

◇◇

“Master~, you are okay?! Are you injured?!” (Momo)

“I am back, Momo.” (Makoto)

Momo-chan hugged Makoto-san in tears, and he comforted her.

“What about the Demon Lord?! I heard that you were attacked by Demon Lord Cain!” (Momo)

“Aah, I fought him off with Dia.” (Makoto)

“W-Wow! As expected of Master!” (Momo)

Momo-chan hopped in place.

I see, so Makoto-san fought Demon Lord Cain and didn’t get any injuries at all.

…What was the point of me rushing there all agitated?

“Don’t push yourself too much, Spirit User-kun. I am tired, so I will go rest.” (Mel)

“Thanks, Mel-san.” (Makoto)

The White Dragon-sama, who had rushed to and fro, said this in a tired tone and headed to the bedroom.

“Then, let’s check the results of your training, Momo.” (Makoto)

“Fufufu, watch this, Master. I can now use Teleport if it is chanted!” (Momo)

“Ooh! Nice, Momo! With this, the number of strategies we can use in the Demon Lord battle will increase!” (Makoto)

“Praise me more! And hug me more!” (Momo)

“Here here.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san and Momo-chan were bonding.

So energetic…

Even though I was tired from riding the back of the White Dragon-sama for half a day.

Let’s sleep for a bit.

I also take a rest in the bedroom where the White Dragon-sama is at.

 ◇◇

When I woke up, it was dark.

I could see the White Dragon-sama and Momo-chan sleeping at the beds of the bedroom.

I couldn’t see Makoto-sama. 

I went out of the Temple and searched for Makoto-san.

(…There he is.) 

Several thousands of butterflies made of water magic were flying around.

Is he training without resting?

Even though he fought against a Demon Lord not that long ago? 

“Abel-san, you are up?” (Makoto)

Even though it should be a blindspot for Makoto-san, he was the one who spoke to me first.

“I woke up just now. Also, please call me Anna when in this form.” (Anna)

I am currently in my heaven winged folk form.

I have recently been in this form more often.

I sat by the side of Makoto-san.

“Thank you for coming today, Anna-san.” (Makoto)

“I didn’t do anything, Makoto-san.” (Anna)

By the time I arrived, Demon Lord Cain was not there anymore.

And I was relieved by that fact.

Even though he is the killer of my master, the Fire Hero…

“Ah, right. Anna-san, there’s something I have to tell you.” (Makoto)

“Y-Yes? What is it?” (Anna)

My back straightened wondering what he was going to say.

Makoto-san said he is going to train in a dungeon called the Deep Sea Temple 7 days later.

“Uhm…can’t you do that here in the Sun Temple?” (Anna)

“There’s not much water here. I can train better in a place with a lot of water.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san said this as if nothing.

He is going all the way to a dungeon to train?

Moreover, it is a place that’s called one of the Last Dungeons, you know?

“Having half a year of open time was unexpected, but I wanted to go to the Deep Sea Temple once, so this is a good opportunity.” (Makoto)

Makoto-san was talking with excited eyes as if he were having fun.

Aah…Makoto-san is going to go somewhere far again.

He really doesn’t stay in place.

I always end up waiting.

“Uhm…Makoto-san, can I consult with you about something?” (Anna)

By the time I noticed, I had grabbed the clothes of Makoto-san and spoke with a tone as if clinging to him.

      I think Anna is unconsiously falling in love with Makoto.

      There isn’t a little bit of tension, huh. Even though he just fought a Demon Lord (well, Makoto was able to negociate with Cain), to the eyes of others who don’t know anything, Makoto must have nerves of steel.

      ““Praise me more! And hug me more!” (Momo)
      “Here here.” (Makoto)

      How cute !

      1. The girls are so easy haha, Aya did say that Lucy was an easy heroine, I guess Anna is even more of an easy one. Then again for momo and anna it’s more about admiration rather than affection, at least for now.

      2. Well, for Momo, I think it is more love than admiration. She wants to be at his side forever. She chose to be at his disciple because she knew that Makoto only see her as a child.

      1. At this rate, Anna won’t be able to become the “stopper” of Makoto. She seems too dependant on him emotionally. Ira is already doing a better job than Anna.

      2. Well given makoto personality, I dont think anyone except the godesses could become his stopper. His common sense was already out of this world after all. The one that could stop him probably is sophia since she’s his superior or furiae since he’s her guardian knight . As you said Ira certainly did her job good this time

    1. Maybe? Maybe not? The goddesses did say that the only thing he needed to do was keep the Light Hero alive. They gave him free reign over everything else. I’m guessing Ira can correct pretty much any other changes except the Light Hero’s death, or they don’t care about other changes.

      1. I didn’t think of that. I suppose the Goddesses could really do something about it? But wouldn’t Ira mess up somehow? The mixed history and stuff is quite confusing. As we’ve seen from the change in the statue of the savior and how it affects the memories immediately, I’d assume that any change in the past does have direct effect to the future, instead of creating alternate reality. And we do know that the original timeline exist, the one that doesn’t involve Makoto. Then there’s the thing with how great white sage remembers Makoto, too.

      2. During the award ceremony when he left midway and went to the great sages (momo) place, he was looking around while she slept, and there was the coffin he saw and she stopped him as soon as he found it.
        So maybe Anna is in the coffin, probably frozen or something like that, and she never really dies and is wating for him to wake her up.

  2. Yep, Makoto ditches his task to do what he wants… And Annabel with its floppy gender…. Probably the reason why vamp loli grew up snarky and strict.
    Kinda makes you feel sorry for poor Mel. Abducted from home under threat, treated as a horse & extra. The most sane member of this “hobodemonslayers” party.

    A) The Goddesses lied and this is the true history.
    I believe this because 1: only Makoto can train the little sage 2: only Makoto can break up the clouds to power up
    Annabel and 3: Bifrons and possibly Momo recognized him.

    B: Makoto is changing the past and the future will change.
    In this route I feel he’ll mess up somewhere Ira-style and really mess up the future.

  9. I mean…yeah. Gotta kill time somehow. Might as well grill something up.

    Momo continues to be an adorable child. It’s almost a shame she becomes a somewhat jaded and stoic Great Sage in the future.
    Her woman’s intuition is already going strong though.

    Let’s hope Abel doesn’t follow Takki to the Deep Sea Labyrinth then. Anna’s…going through some stuff. It’s a process all the harem members go through in their own way, I guess. ….Eh.
    Would it be weird to say that seducing the Savior Abel is the least interesting part of being in the past?

    1. That’s wouldn’t be a weird thing to say. But it’s Abel’s fault for being so easy, you know? I mean, Makoto only saved his life once and then he developed romantic feelings towards Makoto. Such a cliche. Not that I’m complaining because it will become interesting later on when the future gfs of Makoto learns about this mwuehehehehe.

  12. Ho ho! Momo-chan doesn’t pull any punches. She just goes ahead and asks Anna if she likes Makoto and then she immediately finds her answer from seeing Anna’s reaction. Her Woman’s Intuition is strong.

    Meanwhile the gap moe of Momo is too damn strong when you compare her current self versus her future self. I can’t wait to see here acting super dere when Makoto goes back to the future and everyone sees how she acts around Makoto.

    Man talk about a mood killer. Mel and Anna rush back thinking that Makoto is in huge trouble fighting Cain only for them to see Makoto calmly sitting down cooking a fish. Mel should’ve stolen Makoto’s fish and ate it as payback for making her worry. She’s practically the Team Mom now keeping them together by this point. Give her a reward Makoto like head pats or something.

    Alright Anna, your secret is out. She’s gonna get genderlocked at this rate huh? With the switch between genders getting clearer by the day.

    Makoto, just give Momo a lot of hugs and pats. i hope when he comes back to the present, Momo will drop the act and getting dere all around him.

    Mood killer moment, when you think your party member is in grave danger but he’s actually chilling instead.

    Also, will Anna confess? They’re getting closer alright.

  15. Seeing a bit of Anna’s feelings developing here. It was plain as day where they were heading ages ago though. The only question is what she’s going to do about it. Makoto is always oblivious as well, plus he has his preconceptions about “Saviour Abel” pretty firmly locked in his head so he’ll never even consider the possibility on his own. Even if she does manage to express her feelings it’s hard to say what he’ll do about it. After all, I’m sure he’s subconsciously thinking that he’ll find a way back and so doesn’t plan to make any lasting connections back in the past. Plus any possible relationship with them will have his secret hanging over it ominously. Regardless of his whole being from the future thing, his cooperation with with Cain could ruin everything between them. I’m really dreading that coming out.

    Thanks for the translation!
