Chapter 5 - A child is a child and a parent is just a parent, there are various issues to being humans, but doing something about them is what being a pair of parent and child is all about.
Masato came out of the hot spring and headed towards the dressing room.
Right in there, probably prepared by the village chief, a dangerous, yet attractive thing was prepared.
“......It says, Maman’s milk......!?”
No, hold on. Don’t misunderstand. What was prepared was the cla.s.sic treat taken after coming out of a bath, some well-chilled milk(in a bottle). It was made from cow milk produced in the Maman village, hence the name.
Do you want to drink Maman’s milk?
“Kuh! It’s different! It’s not like that! At most, it’s for growing taller in the future!”
Masato put one hand on his waist and drank the milk in one go. Puha. Delicious.
In the meantime.
“Masato, you are there, right? Can you spare a moment?”
A voice called out to him from the other side of the dressing room’s door. It was Wise’s voice.
“O-Ou......yeah I’m here but......don’t tell me you are going to punish me now? If so, then at least give me some time to wear my clothes. Getting blown away in full nude is really too......”
“Why the honorifics? Rather, I’m not going to punish you. I just have something to talk with you about.”
It was simply talking, but he could also imagine her sending him flying right after seeing each other. Masato decided to wear his clothes first anyway. He put on the bear-print briefs humbly made by Porta, then wore a shirt.
As Masato was putting on his clothes, Wise started talking with some strangely picked words.
“You see......I’m going to head out for a little bit, or like......”
“Hah? Going out you say, where?”
“Where......I’m just going to take a stroll in the nearby forest, something like that, such kind of feeling, or the like......”
“Oi oi, we are going to enter boss battle right after this. Even so, strolling, and to the forest as well......it’s already pretty dark, isn’t it dangerous? Monsters have also started appearing, I think that it’s too dangerous for you to go alone.”
“Ah, un, that’s true, but......ah......in that case, does Masato want to tag along?”
“Haa? Why must I go too?”
He questioned her without thinking.
Wise did not reply immediately, she took time to think of some things, then absentmindedly said.
“......Nevermind, after all. I’m going alone then.”
“Hah? Oi, what’s with that? You’re acting strange......huh?”
He quickly finished changing and opened the dressing room’s door, but her figure was already gone.
As he looked towards the direction of the forest, he could see a figure in red fading into the darkness. It was probably Wise, who was entering the forest. She really intends to take a stroll in that place huh......on top of that, she seemed to moving forward in the direction without even a single animal trail......
“She looked strange regardless......if I chase after her now......now is not the time to think about something like this! Geez!”
Masato picked up the Holy Sword of the Sky Firmament that was leaning against the wall, and dashed out of the dressing room.
However, even though chasing after her was the correct choice, he might have been too careless.
“d.a.m.n......I should have at least brought some light source......what a failure......”
He just rushed into the forest that was known for making people get lost, furthermore, it was during a time without any sunlight and he did not bring any equipments. It was not wrong to say that this action was equal to suicide. Good children must not imitate it.
He was moving around without knowing left or right, neither did he know what he was stepping on. Masato was advancing with poor visibility. “Ugh!?” Stumbled, “Nuoo!?” Even as his face rushed into a spider web, he kept searching for Wise.
“That fella is probably lost also......and with me getting lost as well, it won’t be over until I find what I’m looking for......please spare me from something like that......oi, Wise! Not there!? You are there, right!? More importantly, please stay where you are!”
He called out to the bushes, lifted up a fallen tree and checked below “Oh, a horde of dung beetles!?” Something like that, she surely would not be under there. He searched and searched, but could not see her. Only the clock kept ticking.
Masato was at a loss, he looked up into the sky aimlessly. What he saw in the seams between the trees and branches was the clear night sky with a moon floating on it......
He saw a swaying shadow.
“Nn? There’s something above! A monster huh......wait......oi.”
What he saw above was the sole of a shoe. It was the sole of a boot he remembered seeing somewhere. It landed without a sound, stepping on Masato’s face as if it was a matter of course, and pushed him to the ground just like that.
There was only one person who would do something like this.
“Haa......what do you want? Could it be that this is the punishment for that thing earlier? Weren’t you going with the no punishment plan?”
“It’s not a punishment. This is simply landing. You’re the one at fault for standing on my landing spot.”
It was Wise who landed on Masato’s face. And since she had landed on his face “......Tomorrow is pink day, huh” “Did you say something?” “No, not really” The underwear for next day’s use was exposed openly, he glanced at it in amazement.
“So? What are you doing here?”
“That’s my line. What are you......hmm......?”
As he spoke halfway, Masato suddenly noticed.
The words that Shirase whispered to Wise, the problem at Maman village, and Wise’s att.i.tude after hearing about it, this whole situation......that might have been the case, there were many leads suggesting that hypothesis. To Masato, he felt that this was the correct answer.
He asked just in case.
“Hey, Wise. I may have understood the whole story, but......what is your relationship with that Queen, or would it be better if I don’t ask you now?”
“That’s true. I think it’s better if you don’t ask. That way it will be easier for you to fight.”
“I believe that it doesn’t make much of a difference in that regard......”
“Then what? You want me to say it myself that one who threatened the village and demanded an offering of a muscular man that she could played around with is my ‘that’? Even though I already feel like vomiting blood? Even though I’m about to shed tears of blood?”
Wise stared at him with her widely opened, bloodshot eyes. There was no doubt that the atmosphere was somehow different from expressing grat.i.tude, but well, it’s not a bad atmosphere, Masato accepted that sensation.
“Then that means, you are going to secretly make contact and somehow persuade her. Is it okay to take it like that?”
“That’s right. I can’t really leave it alone after all. I’m not unrelated either.”
“However, when it comes down to it, you are a little insecure, so you invited me to come along as a mental support.”
“Wait, that’s not right! I didn’t really intend to go with you because I’m feeling insecure, I totally didn’t have such thoughts! I’m totally not thinking about that! You idiot, getting full of yourself! I’m going to Chainspell instant death magic at you, you hear!?”
Wise denied with a face blushing so hard, that he could notice it in the dark, but well, since the person herself denied it, then he should just leave it at that?
“It’s not like that, it’s not like that! It just means that, as a form of insurance, I will bring you along, that’s all!”
“As a form of insurance......”
“It’s in case my words don’t reach her! It’s possible that she will attack all of a sudden! She’s that kind of person!......If one in a million chance it ends up in a battle, three consecutive attacks are necessary to damage the Queen. The combo attack between the two of us is necessary. Doing that can break through her invincible defense and damage her.”
“I see......that’s where I come in with this accessory used for combo.”
The two took out their Aderire Rings from their pockets, and Wise put it on her right ring finger. “Hurry, you too.” “O-Ou......” Masato followed suit for the time being. There was no deeper meaning in this action.
With that, Masato suddenly thought of something.
“If we’re considering a battle scenario, won’t mom’s firepower be necessary? Calling her to come with us just in case......”
“No. Hold that thought. Please, let’s go there without asking Mamako-san to come along.”
“It’s certainly true that she would be a great help in a battle......if my good-for-nothing mother and someone else’s nice, young and pretty mother were to meet at the same place......spare me from showing the disparity between our families, or like......do you get it? Or rather, understand it!” *Stare!*
Wise’s eyes once again opened wide with intense bloodshot “I-I get it already! I see your point already!” A son, who was happy with a mother like Mamako, would only achieve the opposite effect, had he tried to convince her anymore. He should listen to her wish here.
“T-Then the two of us will go first. The first objective is to try persuading her at most. However, if that fails, we will not fight. How about that?”
“Okay......If possible, before meeting that idiot, I want to check our cooperation when the time comes......ah, I just found something good.”
Some shadows were lurking between the trees before them. The forest was a habitat for monsters. Even though they had defeated the area boss, it didn’t mean that they would disappear. The monsters had ample fighting spirit. They immediately started their attacks.
“Do you need an explanation for cooperation?”
“No, don’t need. I already have an image.”
“Then, let’s go! With a nice feeling, take care of me!”
“Gotcha! First, let me......receive!”
Wolves, deers, bears, evil beasts with changed eye colors came a.s.saulting. Dealing with that first was Masato’s role.
Masato leaped out right in front of the enemies to attract their hate. Then he thrust out his left arm and deployed a defensive shield - the additional effect of his armored jacket. He received the enemies’ attacks with one hand. *Crash!*
“Tsk! But I withstood it!......Back you go!”
Pushing the enemies back with his shield, Masato unsheathed his Holy Sword Firmament in a perfect motion.
The moment he cut down a nearby wolf.
“Cast Cancel! Flame Explosion(Bomba・Fiamma)! Furthermore! Flame Explosion(Bomba・Fiamma)!”
Explosion after explosion burned the enemies to smithereens. An overwhelming victory! “Alright!” “Now then, collect loot!” Then the two of them started gathering gems. Having money was an important matter.
And well, it felt something like that.
“Masato on defense feels quite nice. It makes fighting really easy. We may have a good combination.”
“That’s true. Rather, keep collecting. I received some damage that my auto recovery from the protective gear has yet to catch up.”
“If we are going to fight that idiot, Masato will first receive the attack, I will save up my power and wait for a chance. Next turn Masato will attack, I will combo, and blow her away in one go.”
“No, wait, you need to add a recovery buff in your action. A weakened defender will die without recovery. It’s like when rabbits, when left alone for too long, die earlier from loneliness.”
“It seems that rabbits, contrary to popular belief, don’t die from being alone over a long time, you know?”
“Eh, really? I didn’t know that......more importantly, it’s about recovery.”
“Yea yea, I understand. When the time comes, I will be flexible.”
Gem collection completed. Now then.
“Let’s get going then......is what I want to say, but speaking of which, where should we......?”
“Don’t worry. I got a map to the location where the village chief was going to hand over the sacrifice. Leave guiding to me.”
“Understood. Then......let’s go.”
They b.u.mped fists lightly and went deeper into the forest. Deeper into the darkness.
“......Based on my feeling, it should be soon.”
“I also feel the same. We need to be alert from here on out.”
Being even more cautious, they moved forward amongst bushes while avoiding the road. Gently pushing aside the leaves and branches to take a look......in the open s.p.a.ce of the forest, something seemed to be moving.
Under the moonlight, a shadow rose up. It was a swirling vortex of darkness.
“Oi, what’s that......i swirling......I have seen warp holes like that in other games before, but......”
“It’s exactly that......It’s coming.”
The dark vortex suddenly accelerated its revolutions and expanded itself.
After it reached the size of an entrance, a strong perfume wafted over from the other side. Something was coming out of it.
Soon, it showed itself.
It was a bewitching woman with well-tanned skin. Her body, wrapped in a glittering evening dress, was well-endowed, slim, and bountiful. Her erotic limbs swung in motion as she moved forward.
More than anything, what attracted Masato’s eyes were the two horns growing out from both sides of her head. Those ugly, twisted horns clearly proved that she was not human.
“Just like a devil......This is Queen of Night, huh......”
The opponent was someone’s mother and he was aware of the fact that she woulb be one of the test players. The Queen probably used a transformation magic to change her appearance......Masato took a quick glance at Wise, who somewhat resembled her, and focused his attention on the Queen again.
The arriving Queen lightly snapped her fingers. Five half-naked bishounens immediately walked out, joined their bodies like gymnasts and created a chair. The Queen lowered herself on it as if it was natural and smiled bewitchingly.
“Fufufu. Today is a memorable day. The day I will be getting my sixth son. What kind of a boy will he be, I wonder......aah, that’s right. He could stay in a bridge pose and let his abdominal muscle become a table. That’d be nice. Pressing my hand on it, stroking those abdominal muscles with my fingers while I eat weiners......Ufufufu! The best luxury!”
Her laughter, that seemed joyful from the bottom of her heart, was getting louder as the Queen continued to mutter.
Un. She was the type of person he did not want to get involved with.
Seeing that behavior, Masato was frankly dumbfounded for unknown reasons, as for Wise.
“......That idiot motherrr......how dumb must she get until she’s satisfieddd......!”
She was already gone. She seriously snapped. Incredible veins.
“C-Calm down, Wise! We’ll reason with her first! Talking comes first!”
“It’s too late for words! I really hate that thing for being my mother! I’m going to murder that stupid mother and then die as well!”
“Calm down! If you make a ruckus......!”
“Yeah. Of course I will notice.”
The Queen glanced over at their direction, a thick and well-binded grimoire had already materialized in her hand.
An attack was coming.
“Oi oi! She suddenly wants to fight! There’s no room for talking!”
“In that case, let’s change the plan! Let’s first blow her away and force her to grow up, then after an hour of sermons, we will talk about it! We’re going, Masato!”
“It can’t be helped! Let’s do it!”
Masato and Wise flew out towards that throne, at that instant.
The Queen’s pre-emptive attack. The magic with Cast Cancel activated from her throne a.s.saulted Masato and Wise. However, Masato was not affected.
Wise’s magic was sealed.
“Alright, I quit. Retreat. Thanks for the hard work. Ah geez I can’t do this.”
“Oi, wait just a minute, you useless girl! Don’t give up so quickly......!”
As Wise was looking for a place to lie down around there, the Queen’s magic was activated again. Death G.o.d penetrated through Wise, and after instantly dying, she was encased in a coffin.
“Oi oi oi oi! That’s too merciless!......d.a.m.n it! Since it has come to this, I will do it myself!”
Calling out like that seemed to be pointless. Like Wise said, he had to defeat her first, then make her listen to him. There didn’t seem to be any other choice. In that case.
Kicking away his anxiety, stepping in with bravery, Masato rushed at Queen of Night instantly. “Oooooooo!” The Holy Sword of the Sky Firmament reflected the moonlight as he swung it sharply.
And the slash caught the Queen......however, what was cut was one piece of the Veil of Darkness that were deployed around the Queen. He did not deal any damage to the actual body.
To make matter worse, the shattered veil was quickly repaired, and the two-layered defense immediately recovered itself to three.
“Tch! This is the turn-based invincible defense huh! So troublesome!”
“Fufufu. Sorry for being invincible?......Speaking of which, who are you? Suddenly slashing at me without even greeting, don’t you have any manners?”
“I’m sorry about that!......I’m a companion of that dead Sage over there! Because that fella wanted to persuade you, I made a gallant entrance to help her, like a busybody hero!”
“Oh, is that so......”
Hearing Masato’s speech halfway, the Queen’s eyes distorted uncomfortably. She seemed to be displeased.
“Haa......how stupid. Aah, so worthless.”
“Worthless, you say, that’s not how it is! Wise was unexpectedly worried about......!”
Queen of Night bent her index finger and flicked. An invisible pressure burst out instantly, sending Masato flying away with furious momentum.
“Gaha!?......O-Oi......why......was that, magic just now......something’s different......?”
“I just flicked my finger, you know? It really was just that......Fufufu......ahahahahaha!”
The Queen made a large swing with her arm, in that instant, the s.p.a.ce screamed as it was distorted.
An invisible shockwave from her finger that could easily flick a person away. With its fierce power further enhanced several times due to its increased size, it a.s.saulted Masato just like that. “!?” He yelled in pain as his back hit a tree.
He suddenly realized that he could not move his body.
“Guh......oi, what’s with this!?......Hah......stun effect!?”
“Yes yes, it’s that. Inflicting a temporary immobile status, or something like that. I have only received a simple explanation so I learned little about it. But it’s convenient. After that, just......need to do this, I suppose.”
The Queen raised her hand. The dark vortex at her back quickly changed into a conical shape. The sharp point faced towards Masato. He was in its unavoidable piercing course.
After finishing her preparations to end the fight, the Queen spat out.
“You sure have some nerve, showing up now without any concern. Did you think you could do something by appealing to my feelings? Aah, so worthless. Seriously troublesome. Something like parent and child......Hmph, well, whatever. A nuisance just needs to be eliminated. You showed up here, so you’re just as guilty. Disappear this instant.”
He couldn’t even take a defensive stance, he could only await defeat.
And, at that moment, the earth suddenly shook. The vibrations gradually increased in strength.
“An earthquake?......No, it’s different......”
“This shaking......could it be!?”
It was just that ‘could it be’. The ground before Masato suddenly b.u.mped up, and a sharp tower pierced out of it.
He remembered this scene. This was......finding her son’s location regardless of how far apart they were, interfering whatever situation was happening in that place, the support skill 【Mother’s Fang】.
“Maa-kun! You’re over there! Mom is coming over now!”
She came. It was Mamako. White silver armor donned over her one-piece dress, her right hand held the Holy Sword of Mother Earth Terra di Madre, her left hand held the Holy Sword of Mother Sea Altura, carrying Porta on her back, Mamako gallantly appeared.
Her appearance under the moonlight was full of dignity, like a hero arriving to protect the downtrodden from danger.
“Mama-san! I will take a look at Wise!”
“Please do. I will take a look at Maa-kun......is what I wanted to say......before that, there seems to be someone who needs an opponent.”
“Ah, will you be able to be my opponent? I’m, really strong, you know?”
“Being strong or not doesn’t matter......Regardless of who you are, I cannot forgive you for doing cruel things to my cute son! I bet on my name as a mother that I will not forgive you!”
It was an instant. Mamako already closed the distance between her and the Queen, swinging her crossed swords mercilessly, aiming for her head.
The Veil of Darkness defended her from atattack. However, multiple stone blades and water bullets which followed those slashes grazed the Queen’s skin, they were shallow, but they wounded her.
“Guu!? H-How!? This great me was. .h.i.t!?”
It didn’t deal a lot of damage, but the attacks had certainly connected. The shocked Queen activated her magic in panic.
“Shield(Barriera)!” She desperately piled up her defenses.
“It’s not over yet! Here I go!”
“W-What!? How are you attacking so often!? Aren’t you too unreasonable!?”
In reality, Mamako’s attack consisted mainly of the stone blades and water bullets that appeared with her sword swings, while the swings themselves were not taken into account.
However, the Queen’s invincible defense was turn-based. Even if there was no damage, it would count as one turn of attacks with a certain degree of impact, removing one layer of defense.
“I do hold some regrets, but......as expected, my mom is really great......too strong......”
Chasing with overwhelming speed, Mamako destroyed her defenses again and again. The Queen deployed defensive shields right after the destroyed ones. Their attack and defense exchanges were like a furious storm. Especially the aftershock from Mamako’s all-target attack, which mowed down the trees and gra.s.s easily and shattered the earth with tremendous force. Truly, a fierce battle.
Masato was staring at her current state.
“Ha!? Not good! My role!”
That’s when Mamako noticed Masato’s gaze, she pushed the Queen back with one strike using all of her strength and hurriedly went to Masato to ask for permission. Eh? What is it?
“H-Huh? Mom, what is it all of a sudden......”
“Sorry, Maa-kun! Even though mom’s role is to support Maa-kun, she went overboard! But mom has realized it! What it is that mom should do now!”
Mamako showed a gentle smile, held out her hand and told him.
“Come, Maa-kun. Now’s the time!” *Go ahead.*
“It’s not ‘Now’s the time’ right!? Even if you yield it to me, I’m still in trouble!? There is no chance or what for me at all! As you can see, I can’t move at all!”
“No way! Then, will you get better later!?”
“I am the one who wants to know that! More importantly, instead of me, go be the Queen’s opponent......wait......aah?”
Before his eyes “Kuh! I have to improve the settings some more!” The Queen expanded the dark vortex and escaped while leaving her bishounen chair. Her figure disappeared in an instant.
The contact with Queen of Night ended in a failure.
After the battle, they immediately opened a reflection meeting.
“Like I said! You could’ve finished it, mom! It’s okay to push her around with your firepower and go all out! Defeating her like that would have been good! Why did you withdraw!?”
“Mom cannot spew fire. Mom doesn’t have a stove.”
“Like I said, we are not talking about stove here, how many times must I repeat myself! Firepower basically means attack power! Remember that!”
“T-That’s right. Sorry, mom is bad at remembering things......really sorry......”
Mamako showed an apologetic face and lowered her head deeply......
But before that.
“Ah, no! Hold on a moment!”
Masato pressed Mamako’s cheeks with his hands and raised her face. “Funya? Maa-bun?” Mother’s squeezed face before him “I pressed the wrong place!” Anyway, he raised her face.
Barely safe? I don’t feel that it’s an out. However, Masato was able to notice.
“I can’t help but to yell with this momentum......then it will be the same as before.”
That’s not it. I cannot do that. He believed that he should not do that.
He should speak honestly. His mother was there to listen to him, so he had to calm down. He needed to properly convey what he wanted to tell her.
“Ah, erm, you see......that’s not how it is, that’s not it......I don’t mean to complain to mom, I just want you to be more careful. I just feel like giving a lecture about what will be good to do.”
“Yes, mom understands. Maa-kun is thinking for mom’s sake, and is trying to teach mom about the important things, right?”
“That’s right. That’s why I will not yell like a kid......erm......that’s how it is, so......please work a bit harder next time. I will definitely teach you.”
“Yes. Mom will work hard.”
Mamako’s smiling face bloomed, Masato nodded. And deep inside his heart, he was relieved. That’s right, this is fine. Turning out this way is good. This is the right choice. I can do it if I want to.
He felt that he had somehow grown and tasted great joy.
“......Now then, back to main topic.”
Masato looked back towards Wise who was a little further away.
Wise was in an extremely bad mood. Like a toddler venting out her anger by hugging a stuffed toy, she hugged Porta who was sitting on her lap, and had a sour look on her face.
“Oi Wise. First, release Porta. She seems to be troubled when you treat her like a stuffed toy.”
“Porta isn’t really troubled. Right?”
“Y-Yes! I’m totally fine! I will continue to be a stuffed toy!”
“If Porta is fine with it, then it’s alright......In any case, Wise. Since everyone has gathered, could you tell us your story?”
“Not only are you showing me how close you mother-son pair is, you want me to reveal my terrible situation? What kind of hara.s.sment is that?”
“No, I don’t mean it that way, but......I have roughly guessed it already, so wouldn’t it be better to properly tell mom and Porta? We are companions. Remaining ignorant is, well.”
“Haa......I know already. I just need to tell right, just telling.”
Wise let out a big sigh, and spoke while looking up at the moon.
“The person who calls herself Queen of Night......she is my mama.”
Mamako was taken aback after hearing those words. Her face instantly turned pale.
“Eeh!? That person is Wise-chan’s mother!?......Hey Maa-kun, is that true!?”
“Aah. It seems that that’s the case. She looks totally like a devil, but that’s probably a magical transformation.”
“That’s right. My mama is definitely a human. She doesn’t grow horns......her chest is also not that big. Rather, that was too much. Way too pretentious!”
“How can that be......w-w-w-what should mom do......mom fought her without thinking......”
“Ah, it’s fine, it’s fine. You don’t have to worry about that. I also feel like blowing her away......Because she’s an idiot mother, who won’t look my way if I don’t do at least that much. She’s really the worst.”
While gently stroking Porta’s head, Wise recalled her mother’s appearance.
“My mama was hooked on host clubs in the past, so she couldn’t stop herself from playing with men like that......by the way, my real name is [Genya], but it’s actually the professional name of a host she was interested in.”
“Using a host’s name for her own daughter......?”
“Wise-san’s real name is Genya-san......”
“That’s how it is......that’s how it is......kuh......”
Genya held back the tears with all her might......Since she felt anger and pain towards her real name, it would be better to continue calling her Wise from now on.
“Because mama is like that, my house is a little poor! Mama has spent all the money at home! She even used her daughter’s food expenses on hosts!......Even papa couldn’t endure it anymore, so they divorced. Of course, I decided to live with my papa. That was going to solve everything......at least, that’s what I thought......until one day, mama suddenly showed up.”
“Something like wanting to reconcile with her family?”
“It’s exactly that. As I fiercely rejected, she mentioned this game, and unreasonably tried to become more intimate......Once she realized that she could make lots of money because she was a little bit strong, she said something about releasing stress and started her ‘Playing around with men’ dream while treating me like a nuisance. When I yelled at her ‘Don’t screw with me!’, it was basically a good-bye.”
She snorted roughly.
Wise faced Masato and others and faintly laughed with a crestfallen face.
“And well, that’s how I feel. It’s already over.”
“Over, you say......you......”
“I said that just now, didn’t I? Rather than listening to me, she will strike me with instant death magic the moment I show myself. She doesn’t care about me at all.”
“U-Umm! I won’t do that......!”
“It’s fine, it’s fine. You don’t need to be considerate. I also don’t care about her. My mother and daughter relationship is already over......”
“That’s absolutely not possible!”
Mamako clearly denied her.
Mamako stood before Wise and spoke again while looking straight at her.
“That’s not possible. Parent and child relationships won’t be over. They can never end.”
“Wait, Mamako-san......what are you seriously......”
“But that’s the truth. Parent and child are something above genes or family trees, something that cannot be severed even if you try to cut it. Because parent and child are eternal.”
“No, well, Mamako-san and Masato have a good relationship, so you may actually feel that that’s how all parents and children are like, but I totally......”
“That’s not possible. Wise-chan must have felt it it. You are just unaware of it, but you really do have it inside yourself......Can you spare a moment?”
Mamako pulled Wise’s hand to make her stand up, and brought her closer like that.
She held Wise tightly against her chest.
“Now, Wise-chan. Feel my hug firmly. How is it?”
“How, you ask......Mamako-san’s chest is large, soft, and gives off a nice fragrance......”
“However, something is amiss, right? It’s a little different.”
“That’s......for some reason, it’s different from the feeling I know, I really do have such thoughts......the fragrance is also different, not in a bad meaning, it’s like this is not it......”
“Who is it different from?”
“Who you ask, that’s of course my mama......ah......”
Wise seemed to have suddenly realized it.
She didn’t know if it was since her birth. It was something nurtured without her noticing.
It was an incomprehensible, uncertain, but also undeniable feeling that definitely existed.
It was definitely there inside of everyone, a parent and child’s ‘that’.
“Hey. It’s not over. Wise-chan definitely has it......That’s why, okay?”
Mamako shifted her gaze towards Masato, showing him a smile.
What meaning did it hold......there was no need to ask that question.
“Revenge it is, then.”
It was not some grand task to save the world. It was for the sake of someone close to him, in order to repair that twisted bond between a mother and daughter.
The curtain of a battle that the ordinary hero could not afford to lose was lifted.
“D-Don’t misunderstand! It’s not like I wanted to, I just decided to meet mama one more time because Mamako-san told me to! Well, it won’t hurt to get along with her a little better, that’s all there is to it!”
“Yes yes, you say that. Getting a hug from my mom, good for you.”
Although she was making a fuss with excuses, well, he didn’t mind it.
They began tracking down Queen of Night.
“How is it, Porta?”
“I can smell the strong scent of her perfume! This way!”
“Porta-chan is really amazing after all. Being able to track from scent.”
“Scent also plays an important role when appraising, so I properly increased the skill! Please leave it to me!”
Twitching her small nose and sniffing around to search, Porta led them deeper into the forest.
The deeper they went, the more branches and leaves covered the sky above their heads, causing the moonlight that shone to dim. They were enveloped in darkness as they advanced, but their goal was further inside. Even further inside.
After they walked for awhile, Porta saw something.
“Ah, I see something!......That’s......?”
It was a mysterious scenery before them. A coffin was stuck to a tree trunk. It seemed that someone had died over there.
“Considering the coffin that appeared before us suddenly, I just thought of one person.”
“I also thought of one person. As such, I will quickly revive her......Supra・La・Magia・Peru・Mirare......Resurrection(Rianimato)!”
After Wise used resurrection magic, the coffin vaporized, revealing the figure of a nun that was within it. It was indeed that person. An acquaintance who called herself the Mysterious Nun, Shirase.
“......It’s you people. It seems that I have been saved again. I’m sorry to have troubled you all again and again.”
“No no, I have pretty much gotten used to it. You don’t have to apologize.”
“However......if possible, please do something about my condition of being pierced by a tree branch......coming back to life, I want to......inform......Shira......se......” *Gaku.*
“Sorry for not noticing!”
Shirase was revived, but then died again. It was easy to revive the dead with magic, but one also had to take care of them later. “Masato! Hold there!” “Got it!” They took her down from the tree and revived her again.
Once again, Masato’s party reunited with Shirase.
“It’s just as I thought. When I opened my eyes again, I believed that I was going to see everyone’s smiling faces......Now then, let me confirm the situation immediately. How is the quest I requested going?”
“It’s going well. Queen of Night has run away, we are in the midst of chasing her.”
“I see......then, have you understood anything regarding the Queen?”
“The opponent uses magic with Cast Cancel, and also has turn-based invincible defense, I know that she is pretty troublesome......Others are......”
“I have already told them that the Queen is my mama.”
As Wise resolutely announced, Shirase thought that was a little unexpected, as she slightly raised her eyebrow with a surprised expression. However, she soon returned to her usual calm demeanor.
“Looks like pretty much everything has been said. As everyone’s guide, this Shirase will inform you about an additional information regarding the Queen. I will inform you. Just as Shirase.” *Smart pose.*
