Hello guys! I’m always late lately, I know and I’m sorry… xD
As you can see, we changed websites over the weekend (aka yesterday), so it might be a little messy around here, but we’ll take care of it (btw, if you don’t receive e-mails with new updates anymore, even tho you registered on the previous website, I wanna ask you to subscribe again ^.^)
And I’ll personally take care of experimenting with all the new feature I could use (I’m pretty excited about it, tbh)…
Anyways, I owned you two chapters for this week, and they’re both coming today.
Oh, and if you’re experiencing any problems/trouble, feel free to say something.
Chapter 73: Blessed with a Moment of Peace
20 days have passed since the ‘nude-Bea’ incident.
The black nights knew how I desperately ran around that night, so they laughed at me, but I took care to train them properly. Other than that, we were living in times of peace, going out drinking with Herman and his men, making fun of Albert and his notorious ‘I’m a kemonobito, but I’m herbivorous’ saying, at which people usually laugh so hard, that they even lose their breath.
The things were progressing smoothly, with all the regional lords surrendering one after another.
Tasel and Media were riotously taking care of hunting the former administration remnants.
As for me, I was finally able to let the soldiers take turns and train again.
Today, Albert was in charge of training the Main Army’s soldiers.
I didn’t have any paperwork to do for the day, but I was nonetheless sitting in my office, when a maid came to visit.
“Your Excellency, his Majesty’s letter arrived.”
Finally. I needed directions for how to deal with this situation from now on, otherwise it could get rather ugly.
I hurriedly opened the letter.
‘I leave it in your care.’
…………………I looked for a second page, but I couldn’t find any.
Did he really pass this whole task onto me!? I take it that the Emperor won’t enjoy spirit drops anymore.
He said it’s up to me now….
I was a little troubled when the maid started talking again.
“There’s a letter from the Holy Country of Lilac.”
I really hoped it didn’t only say ‘Understood’ or something like that.
I opened the letter anxiously.
‘The God’s guidance is equal for all. And His relationship with the apostles is……………..’
Is this a scripture? I really don’t understand a thing………
It was supposed to be a letter saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’………….
The Holy Country sure is scary.
Confused, I read the scripture-letter again.
It started to look more and more like a Bible in the form of a letter.
I was in a state of panic when Media came inside the office.
I didn’t even notice her…….
I turned to face her, only to see Media wearing a huge smile, while patting her tummy.
“Your Excellency, I am expecting a baby!”
“I see. I see. Congrats. You can take a break from the army and take care of your body.”
“Yes. Thank you very much. Excuse me.”
She said and left the room.
I see Media is going to be a mother.
Haha…….They were faster than me…….
Well, there’s no need to rush things up anyway. Bea and I will do our best in our own pace.
I walked towards the window and looked at the courtyard.
Tasel was zealously participating in a sham battle.
His opponent was Albert. The battle was violent and it looked pretty impressive.
I opened the window and shouted.
“Pregnant women are not allowed to do sham battles! Bring me that stupid Media!!”
I was almost deceived……
I thoroughly lectured Media for about two hours, when a maid came into my office.
“Your Excellency, a messenger from the Holy Country of Lilac just arrived.”
“……..Understood. Let them wait in the reception room.”
After Media left, I read the letter-Bible again.
………..As I thought, I couldn’t really understand anything.
I gave up and walked to the reception room where a brown-haired sister was waiting for me.
“I have made you wait. I’m Zest, the former Tarminal Kingdom’s commander-in-chief.”
She didn’t have any noticeable features……but that was a feature in itself. She smiled and started talking.
“I am glad to meet you. I am a sister of the Holy Country of Lilac. I don’t have a name since I was already baptized. I hope you understand.”
She bent her knees and put her hands together at her chest.
This must be a custom of this world.
As I thought, there’s a bit of Japaneseness blended with this worlds’ practices.
“I do. Well then, sister, what business had brought you here?”
She smiled and her eyes glittered as she started talking again.
“Regardless of me having business with you or not, we must never give our blessing to something that goes against the Will of God. The water that flows down will never make it into the sea. If you’re asking why, the answer is the God’s guidance.”
The sister, no longer smiling, puffed up with pride.
The God’s guidance……..was the only thing I understood……..haven’t I?
