WM – Chapter 360: Moon Country

“Eh? It wasn’t that you came to visit me?” (Furiae)

“Aah, yeah…you could say that.” (Makoto)

Momo and I were guided into the room of the Moon Country’s queen, Furiae-san.

This is the first thing she said after I explained the situation.

“That’s right, Moon Country’s Queen. Makoto-sama’s Teleport is so haphazard, we ended up coming here.” (Momo)

“Also…you are the Great Sage of the Sun Country, right? Your atmosphere has changed an awful lot.” (Furiae)

“The Great Sage has retired, so she is a civilian now.” (Makoto)

“I-I see…” (Furiae)

It seems like she is confused by Momo who has black hair and is in plain clothes. 

I take my time enjoying the tea offered to me. 

This tea is tasty. 

“My Knight, why are you relaxing?” (Furiae)

She poked my head. 

It is true that it is rude to intrude on the busy queen without an appointment and no business.

“Then, we will be taking our leave.” (Makoto)

I finish drinking my tea and stand up from the sofa.

“Eh? Y-You are leaving already?!” (Furiae)

“Sorry for intruding. I will contact you beforehand the next time I show up. Well then, Momo, hold my hand. I will use Teleport to head to the North Continent…” (Makoto)

“Don’t mess up this time, Makoto-sama.” (Momo)

“W-Wait a moment! You don’t need to leave immediately!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san grabbed my arm tightly.

“I am not intruding?” (Makoto)

“You are not intruding at all! Stay here forever! And so, the reason why you are going around everywhere…” (Furiae)

“The objective this time is to give the people invitation letters.” (Makoto)

I took out the wedding invitations from my coat pocket and showed them to Furiae-san. 

“Aah, that…” (Furiae)

Furiae-san made an unamused expression.

“I heard that you have already received one, Princess.” (Makoto)

“Yeah, I have.” (Furiae)

The name of Furiae-san was within the list of people who have already been invited.

That’s why I shouldn’t have any reason in particular to come to the Moon Country. 

The Teleport from the Time Spirits is unstable. 

That said, Princess doesn’t seem to have much energy.

“Princess? Are you okay?” (Makoto)

“W-What?! Your face is too close!” (Furiae)

I peeked at her face and she scolded me. 

Leaving right after coming here would be rude, so Momo and I decided to stay for a night in the Moon Country.

◇◇

“Fuwaah…” 

I stretched widely in the big bed that’s in the guest room of the Moon Country’s castle. 

Momo is sleeping in the neighboring bed. 

It seems like the exhaustion from fighting an invader from the Black Moon was big, she fell asleep as soon as she got into the bed.

Now then, let’s aim for the North Continent this time for sure. 

*…Knock Knock*

Someone knocked on the door.

“Come in.” (Makoto)

The door opened before I said that.

“That’s a relief. You are still here, My Knight.”

The one who said this and entered was Furiae-san.

She is not wearing the queen dress of yesterday, but the one piece like that of old times.

“Good morning, Princess.” (Makoto)

“Good morning, My Knight. You are going to the North Continent from here on, right?” (Furiae)

“That’s my intention.” (Makoto)

“Then, I will go with you.” (Furiae)

“Eh?” (Makoto)

I couldn’t understand her words and asked back.

“What? Are you saying I can’t be with you?” (Furiae)

“No… Is that okay? You are a queen, right, Princess?” (Makoto)

That was a weird sentence, but it is true that Furiae-san is the top of the Moon Country.

“I am sorry, Makoto-sama. Please allow Furiae-sama to accompany you if it is not of too much inconvenience.” 

The one who entered the room at some point in time was a leader of the Moon Country and a close aide of Furiae-san, Havel-kun. 

“Is it okay to bring her with me?” (Makoto)

“Of course! The queen pretty much has no work!” (Havel)

Furiae-san puffed her chest out proudly.

{It is obviously not the case, but Furiae-sama has been swamped with work lately, so I would like her to take a breather…} (Havel)

{I see. Got it.} (Makoto)

Havel-kun whispered in my ear and I nodded lightly. 

If that’s the case, let’s have her come together with us like a short trip of sorts.

“Fuwaah… So noisy.” (Momo)

Momo woke up.

I explained the situation to the drowsy Momo and she responded with a baffled ‘it can’t be helped’, but didn’t go against it.

Looks like Momo sympathizes with her as someone who was working for a long time in the Sun Country.

 

“Well then, I am off!” (Furiae)

“I will be taking care of Princess for a while.” (Makoto)

Furiae-san finished some simple preparations for the journey, and departed with Momo and I who were being seen off by the people of the Moon Country in the audience room. 

“Makoto-sama, please Teleport to the North Continent already.” (Momo)

“I know, I know.” (Makoto)

I got the complaint of Momo and activated the spell.

The light enveloped us.

◇◇

When the light cleared away, we were in a noisy town. 

“We’ve got some nice goods from the dungeon.” 

“We have a 10% discount on all magic weapons!” 

“Oi, did you know that there was apparently a nest of gem lizards in Floor 45?!” 

“What?! Let’s go there at once!” 

“Can’t someone defeat the Floor Boss of Floor 70 quickly?” 

“You can defeat it.” 

“The Queen Bee has way too many mobs, you can’t do anything without a large scale destruction spell.” 

I heard that conversation.

“Hey, My Knight, is this the North Continent?” (Furiae)

“No…I think this isn’t it.” (Makoto)

Looks like the Teleport failed again.

But I have gone through most of the West Continent’s towns, and I feel like this one is different from all of them.

“Hey, Momo, do you know where this is?” (Makoto)

I asked this and…

“Makoto-sama, Furi, please look behind.” (Momo)

Momo pointed at a certain place.

By the way, she can’t say the name of the queen in front of others, so she is using the alias Furi. 

Furiae-san and I looked behind just as she told us.

“Ooh…” (Makoto)

“Wow…” (Furiae)

We saw a gigantic tower that pierced through the skies. 

It is so wide that it is barely entering fully in my vision. 

The Deep Sea Temple was more gigantic, but this one is far and beyond taller. 

The tower has pierced through the clouds and I don’t know how far up it is going after all.

Maybe it has reached space? 

It at the very least doesn’t look like a construction that can be made by humans.

“Momo, this is…” (Makoto)

“The Zenith Tower, Babel. One of the Last Dungeons.” (Momo)

“Eh?! Then, doesn’t that mean this is the South Continent?” (Furiae)

It is as Furiae-san said.

A giant tower that’s one of the Last Dungeons is the Zenith Tower Babel located in practically the center of the South Continent. 

I messed up the Teleport again, huh.

“…” 

Momo looked at me with narrowed eyes.

She must have grown tired of my mistakes. 

Can’t be helped. Let’s ask Momo to help with the next Teleport…is what I was thinking and…

“Oh, and here I felt an unbelievable mage had barged into the city. So it was you, Great Sage-kun.” 

An unknown person suddenly spoke to us from right beside me. There wasn’t anyone there until just now. 

Tall and defined physique. 

I could tell that he is from a high standing because of the deep scarlet cloak and expensive-looking attire that has gold embroidery. 

Most of all, the mana clad around his body is as high as that of Momo and Rosalie-san, so I can tell that he is not your average person. 

“It has been a while…or not, King Uther.” (Momo)

““?!””

I wasn’t the only one who was surprised by the words of Momo, Furiae-san also made a shocked expression. 

The Dungeon City-State that has developed around the Zenith Tower. The one who rules this is King Uther Mercurius Pendragon. 

His name resonated in the world as an outstanding adventurer, and is also the author of the [5 Continent Chronicles] that I like reading. 

—That’s what I learned about recently. 

I didn’t expect the author of a book from more than a century ago to still be alive, moreover, he looks young. 

Is he really the person himself? Not his descendant or something? 

“Great Sage-kun…no, you have already retired, right? And the ones with you are…the Moon Country’s…fumu, I see. Then, he is…hooh!! You are the person that’s rumored to have cleared the Deep Sea Temple!” (Uther)

“W-Wait!” (Makoto)

He said something outrageous in a loud voice. 

It fortunately seems like no one heard what he said just now because of the noise of the city. 

“This is truly interesting. I would like to hear what you have to say in detail if you have time later.” (Uther)

This king is so friendly -far more than any royalty of the West Continent. 

“I am sorry, King Uther, but we were actually trying to head to the North Continent and accidentally ended up in Dungeon City. We have business, so let’s leave that for a different instance.” (Momo)

Momo explained the situation. 

That said, it is something that no one believed in in the Floating Continent. 

I thought he would most likely suspect us here, but…

“A Teleport that can go as far as to mistake a continent? That’s impossible with the current magic formula… In that case, old magic. A Teleport that utilized Time Spirits, huh.” (Uther)

He easily believed us. 

Or more like, the general populace doesn’t know about the existence of Time Spirits though…

“You know about Time Spirits?” (Makoto)

“Of course, Apostle of the Goddess-dono. Speaking of which, you are a Spirit User. But even the Apostle-dono can’t master Time Spirits, huh.” (Uther)

“Muh, that’s not true! Right, My Knight?!” (Furiae)

Furiae-san objected, but…

“”It is embarrassing, but it is as he says.” (Makoto)

I couldn’t object at all. 

“It is hard to communicate using words with Time Spirits…or more like, the Spirits as a whole, so when you are asking for something, it would be better to do so by showing them the real thing. For example, if you want to go to the North Continent, you can show them a pebble or something from the North Continent and tell them you want to go there, and the chances to succeed should increase.” (Uther)

“I see.” (Makoto)

The words of King Uther made sense.

I have been using the Great Water Spirit Dia, who I have known for long (more than 1,000 years) and am in sync with, as the standard, but words alone are probably not enough for Spirits that I have low proficiency with. 

I take out ‘something’ from my pocket. 

“I will try using this to head to the North Continent. Thank you very much, King Uther.” (Makoto)

“…Apostle-dono, if my Appraisal isn’t wrong here, what you are holding right now is the ‘Ancient Dragon King’s Fang’ from the strongest Demon Lord of this world…” (Uther)

“That’s right, King Uther. Makoto-sama has something like that in his pocket. Isn’t he crazy?” (Momo)

“Hmm, it seems like the personages that have cleared a Last Dungeon are coo coo in their head. I really would like to talk to you more.” (Uther)

“Hey, My Knight, aren’t they talking trash about you?” (Furiae)

“I-It is probably your imagination.” (Makoto)

I ignore the retort of Furiae-san. 

Am I really that weird? 

This is when I suddenly remember.

“King Uther, how about this if it is fine with you?” (Makoto)

I bring out a wedding invitation and give it to King Uther.

“““…”””

King Uther, Momo, and Furiae-san stared at me in silence.

E-Eh? Did I do something wrong?

“King Uther, you can refuse. Makoto-sama, let’s learn some common sense already.” (Momo)

“My Knight, where would you find an idiot that would invite the king of a country to their wedding the very first day they met him…?” (Furiae)

“But he said he wanted to talk with me more…” (Makoto)

I flusteredly try to explain myself and…

“Hmm, I would like to participate, but…” (Uther)

““Eh?!””

Momo and Furiae-san raised their voices in surprise.

See, isn’t it fine? 

“Actually, the Dungeon City is changing a lot right now, so I can’t leave this place. I am sorry, but I will have to decline the invitation this time around.” (Uther)

He said this and returned the invitation regretfully. 

“I see. I will come to this Dungeon City again some other time.” (Makoto)

I said this and made something appear from on top of the palm of King Uther.

It is a single letter. 

“You can have a meeting with me at any time with this referral letter, so please use it. Now then, I will return to my job. Thanks for the fortuitous meeting.” (Uther)

He said this and disappeared with Teleport without a sound. 

There was zero time in between his first magic circle and the chant for activation. 

That was the least wasteful Teleport I have seen until now. 

“He was so friendly it is hard to believe he is a king.” (Furiae)

Furiae-san was taken aback.

I am also in a similar state.

“He says he is just a king in name, and his main job is a magic researcher and a venturer. More importantly, Makoto-sama, let’s go to the North Continent already.” (Momo)

“I-I know.” (Makoto)

I nodded profusely at the words of Momo.

My right hand has the fang that the Ancient Dragon King gave me -the proof of the Dragon King. 

I should be able to go to the North Continent with this. 

(Spirit-sans…please.) (Makoto)

I activated Teleport. 

Momo and Furiae-san grabbed my arms.

This is the second time today we were enveloped by light. 

◇◇

The density of the mana in the air is high. 

Not only that, there’s faint miasma mixed in it, and there’s rugged rocks spread far and wide. 

I have seen this scenery before. 

It is a place that I have come to before with the Teleport of Lucy. 

“Hey, My Knight, this is…?” (Furiae)

“It has been a while, hasn’t it, Makoto-sama?” (Momo)

“Princess, we have arrived at the North Continent.” (Makoto)

We arrived at the North Continent, the Demonic Continent that is ruled by the Demon Lords. 

■Comment Response: 

> “Could it be that you are the wife of the Fire Emperor-sama?”

> “We divorced, so ex-wife.”

>Is what was written, but is the Fire Emperor the dad of Lucy? 

-Who knows~.

>Ooh, finally using the magic crystal of that time. 

>I was thinking the whole time about when it would be used, but it looks like it will connect to a story separate to Makoto and his group.

-There were many mentions of it, so it is something I wanted to fill up.
