They rise their spears in response and with their confident smirking face they all charge forward on me.Four of them in total… Can I beat them? There is no time to doubt me. There is no point in dwelling on my previous losses.I face of the people who took away Falfa resurface in my mind. It gives my spine a chill. However, if I didn’t believe in myself… If I didn’t believe in Falfa who believe in me… I’ll end up dying at this point. I can’t let my happiness be taken away from me. I just took her back.Their spears made long swings. The blade created a “shing!” sound passing through the air. It's very sharp.I lay low my body barely dodging one of the spears. From beneath, I pushed my body forward with a dashing slash. Blood sprayed out from one of the elf's chests.As to be expected, without the empowering strength coming from the sword relic. I cannot cut through his torso. Still, I made a deep wound on his chest.“You! Bastard!”The three give me a bloodthirsty glare and flew up.
Yuno kingdom. The kingdom was also known as the Sacred forest for many. Some called these places the fairy kingdom for the obvious reason that these kingdoms were always led by fairies. Fairies like angels have huge pools of magic within their bodies. The difference between them and the angels is that Fairies are creatures manifested from dreams and beliefs. I don’t quite understand it and asked Belle one time. She told me a long long story about Sacred forest's history and how a player/Hero named Yuno saved the World Tree from withering. A kingdom was then built at the heart of the forest and named after him. The scenery can only be described in one word. “It’s mystical.” This place looks like some kind of place I only imagine seeing in picture books. I know that this place is real, but I can’t help myself but stay in awe. I was stunned by the beauty of the land. I remained speechless traversing the woodlands. From the world tree, roots stretched across the continents. The roots
Eden city, City hall. Dia clutched her temples trying to relieve some stress. “What is going on?” She whispered and stood up from her seat to get some tea. (I was gone for quite a while and problems pile up. Is that murderous Latina still doing her job? I take that back, she’s doing her job. She hated me more than anyone in this world. But she’s a big help, that’s for sure. I could not imagine myself doing this intense work without her.) Dia spawled back in her seat. She blow the hot steam first and sniff the relaxing aroma for a moment before she made her first little sip. She then shifted her sight to the paper laying on the desk. Most of them are report letters for spies Dia deployed to investigate other kingdoms' actions. The land that pull her interest the most was the neighboring country Ruki kingdom and The remote Islands of Youko. Youko wasn’t part of the world organization and they always push any offer from other countries as if saying that they could survive on their
Dashing at the dunes of the great desert back to Foire territory. I’m not planning on going to Fiore to ask for help from the knights. I’m merely going to use the route from Fiore to Yuno kingdom. Knights of order aid will be great, but I decided not to bother them. The last time I visited, I find out that they were having a long battle between the kingdom knights. The demon king might be gone, but the war continues. It will be inconsiderate of me if I ask them for a selfish favor. I have no exact plan on how I’m going to save Falfa. This might seem like jumping on a cliff, but I can’t help myself to jump. I have to save Falfa no matter what. This desperation is driving me to my limit. I’m still full of hatred for the recent events. Why Belle would do something like this? Belle is not the type of girl who will order such a cruel task. I believe in her. If ever I got a chance to get inside Yuno kingdom. I’ll make sure to have a conversation with her. Overthinking about it won’t bring
“Princess Alina… Your tea is ready.”Miko placed the cup of tea accompanied by several variations of sweets. As for the girl in question--Alina-- was busy glazing into the unknown. For what reason she’s looking high up in the clear blue sky? For sure Alina won’t be adoring the blue sky. She is not the type of person who likes beautiful things after all. The craziest part was that Alina was standing in the same spot in front of the giant window for one week. She’s not sleeping or eating anything. Her eyes were simply fixed on something. Miku deep in her heart was worried and would like to ask what is going on. But if she does, that might be the end of her. In other words, death. Miku simply support her in whatever Alina wanted.There’s still the tea she serves earlier and Alina’s favorite strawberry shortcake.Miku can’t do anything but have a deep breath and placed the untouched food back into her pushcart.“Good night milady.”Miku greeted her and bowed her head before leaving Alina
“I’m dead!”I sat up as I woke up. Immediately I have my hand on my chest and check my wound. There are no wounds in my chest. My body is perfectly fine. I was skeptical myself and look around. The place where I found myself wasn’t someplace I know.There's no floor but I’m sitting. No walls or anything. The closest description I could ever think of was that this place looks like the starry night sky I usually gaze into.From some angles, this place looks majestic.I didn’t notice immediately, but there was a girl sitting on a throne in front of me. The face same as Elaina's. This girl was the Cosmo witch.“You really mess up there.”She said.“You here to help me again. Thank you so much…”“Help you?”The witch gives me a cold gaze. My limbs were torn apart and my head was skewered by a golden sword.“... Don’t get ahead of yourself. I’m not helping you or anything. Well, in some aspect we can say that I was helping you. I mean, you are dead right now and I’m the only one who can hel
A 50-meter-tall dragon appeared out of nowhere. Monsters aren’t supposed to get through the barrier of Liana. The barrier of Liana is been protecting the whole continent for hundreds of years. While I was dashing in full throttle something from the past resurfaced in my mind. In the past, the time Falfa and I were still new on this continent. There was a case about the havoc of the horned bear. The main culprit for that was the wyvern that took their shelter away from the bears. I took care of them and finds out that a part of the barrier melted. The hole wasn’t clear to the naked eye and only I who had a gleaming yes could see it. Wyvern noticing the hole is simply dumb luck. However, there must be someone who can see the barrier just like me and… Is this event caused by my ignorance? I want to live life os selfishly thinking of my happiness with Falfa. I don’t want to live like a hero who will selflessly dive into danger ever again. I don’t want that feeling anymore. But why am
“Hngf!”The breath burst from his throat when her back struck the ground. Retto yanked aside the cloth that clung to his face and struggled in the darkness for a few moments before recognizing that she was in his bedroom.He fell out of bed in his sleep.Retto collected his blankets and climb back into the bed.It was late June now, and although the sunlight was getting warmer, the predawn morning was still freezing. It was mostly because the town they live in was located on a plateau. The lush green forest nearby also gives off a heavy breeze making every morning cold.Retto doesn’t particularly sleep too much. But this time he goes back to bed to get some sleep. But after moments of staying in bed eyes closed. His unable to sleep and give up. He sat up and turned his head to his side where his wife was supposed to be sleeping.“She’s already up…”His someone trying his best to be a good husband and future father of their first child. Retto can’t afford the time to laze around like b
