Chapter 113 : The Girl Departs!
Night, in a certain Island―
This island was covered by a special barrier which kept it protected from all kinds of outside interference.
The road heading to the beach was properly maintained, and one could see that even though it was a small island, the arrangements here were proper.
Located in the center of this island was an oriental style building―a huge Japanese style castle.
The castle was composed of three floors. Upon a closer inspection, one could spot undead such as semi-transparent 〝Ghost〟 or armed 〝Skeleton〟 loitering around―No!—patrolling the castle.
If one asked for the reason for such a statement.
It was that those undeads didn’t radiate an evil aura.
On the contrary, it felt like they were enjoying their job. Besides, their movements were natural.
Most undeads held animosity toward living beings, so they had no sense of reason. However, the undeads on this island were patrolling the castle as if they were doing it on someone’s order.
This wasn’t surprising since the owner of this island was the one who freed them from their hatred of living beings.
The undeads who were released from their curse pledged their allegiance to the owner of the island and protected the owner’s castle in place of soldiers.
It wasn’t just limited to the defense of the island, the undeads also worked on other jobs.
In short, the construction of the building, the maintenance of the road, and other odd jobs, the undeads were handling all of them.
A certain room in the Japanese castle had a tatami mat and sliding doors like a traditional Japanese room.
The room was decorated with flowers and pots arranged in line with the castle theme.
「〝May〟… are you sure about this? If your dad and mom―〝Maiya〟 and 〝Rin〟—learn that you’re going out of this castle, they’re going to be sad, you know?」
「Don’t worry about it! It’s not like I’m gonna disappear forever. Just say that I’m gonna disappear for a while and return later! That’s why you must stop worrying about me, 〝Imperial〟 sama?」
A beautiful girl and a beautiful loli were conversing in the room.
The beautiful girl called Imperial was a woman around 190 cm tall. She had a slender body, waist-length black hair, and a pair of giant ballistic weapons on her chest that could kill half of the men in the world with their sheer size.
She wasn’t just a beauty. For some reason, the color of her skin was close to pale blue, and a long, dragon-like tail sprung out of the base of her round, delicious buttocks, which were deadly enough to kill the other half of the men in the world.
The woman, Imperial, was a mutated elf.
Besides that, she was one of the wives of this island’s master, the archmage who saved the world from Ragnarok―Izayoi Maiya.
As for the identity of the beautiful loli who chatted with Imperial.
Her name was 〝May Izayoi Toudou〟
She was a girl with big, bright black eyes and long glossy black hair in a hairdo.
In contrast with the glamorous Imperial, the loli’s figure was… as flat as a board with almost no undulation.
As to her honor as a woman, this situation was so purely because of her young age. Her body would properly grow once she hit her growth spurt.
She was clad in pure white vestment, and she was holding a silver staff in her hands.
She was the exact resemblance of the priest who served the god.
「Well, since you’re going to leave this place for a while, you’ve to at least take ‘this’ with you. My 〝Secret Skill〟 is sealed inside it, but you can only use this once.」
「Are you sure!? I mean, such a precious magic item…」
「Don’t worry about it. You’re Maiya’s beloved daughter after all. That makes you my family too. That’s why you must take this in case you encounter an emergency.」
May accepted the magic item called 〝Primordial Choker〟 from Imperial.
Imperial looked at May with eyes full of regret and affection as she spoke.
「Well then, please open the 〝Gate〟, Imperial-sama!」
「Hey, May. As expected, let me re—」
「REJECTED! A 〝paradox〟 will occur if anyone other than May, who has the 〝hero’s crest〟, jumps into the gate!」
「Uhm… it can’t be helped. Searching for the coordinates… fixing, deploying… OPEN! 《GATE》!!」
Imperial offered herself to change places with May and finish what the latter was trying to do, but her action would create a huge distortion in the world.
The only one who was allowed to do that without causing any distortion was the Hero, May’s mother, or her direct descendant, May herself.
Imperial spread her arms and furrowed her eyebrows as if focusing on something.
Thereupon, a black door that released crackling purple lightning appeared in front of her.
「I’m heading out, Imperial-sama!」
「Yeah, be careful, and don’t let your guard down… Haah! Explaining this to Maiya and Rin will be a pain in the ass…」
May bid her farewell in her usual lively voice.
Imperial sent her off while wondering about how to explain her disappearance to her father and mother.
But still, she had decided to let her go off and see the world on her own.
Everything was for the future of May’s beloved person!
Crackle! Crack! Crackle!!
The darkness of the plain night was interrupted by a sudden flash of lightning.
Soon, the flash of lightning became bigger and brighter. Then, within the lightning appeared a jet black gate that was darker than the night itself.
「Fuuh, 〝Jump〟… complete! As expected of Imperial-sama!」
A girl appeared along with the voice.
From her bright expression, one could see that May’s plan had been successful.
「Well then, the first thing to do on the list is to look for a party. My top candidates are 〝Solitary Island’s Hero〟. That Guy will be revived in Wusald Pehkur kingdom, the precise location and time is…」
May started grumbling by herself and placed her fingers on her lips as she recalled the necessary information.
For the sake of her beloved father, she had to make sure her plan succeeded at all costs.
Her serious expression betrayed her young, tender age.
And then, while she was drowned in her own world―
Two shadows approached her from behind.
Blood vessels were pulsing on the four legs of each shadow.
Their tails resembled a whip.
Saliva dripped from the sharp fangs that were peeking out of their mouths.
They were C-rank monsters, 〝Big Fang〟.
At a glance, they looked like wolves, but they were bigger than normal wolves.
「Humph, are these the field monsters of this era? Well, I guess they’re enough for warming up!」
May spoke to herself as she let out an enigmatic smile upon seeing the appearance of the two monsters.
Despite her young age, her squinting figure as she licked her lips had an unspeakable charm.
Though, she had copied this charming expression from her mother, Rin, from when Rin had decided to enjoy the night to the fullest with May’s father. May herself had no idea what that expression meant, and she just tried to copy her mother.
In front of the snarling Big Fangs, May raised her silver staff to heaven.
Thereupon, a blinding light erupted near her.
On her right was holy white light.
On her left was chaotic, ominous black light.
「Kukukuku, behold, the power of the Archmage and the Hero’s child.」
