134-Solar eclipse

 The merchant muttered with a look of pasted-on despair on his face.

.........what does the curse mean.......I don't need any more of these guys who can break the curse.......

 Rattling and shaking his legs, the merchant backed away.
 Then he fled away in a flash.

''Hmm. Let's see how he reacts when he finds out the curse is unbreakable.

 Kudos and I clear my throat.

'You look like a demon king,'

 Sasha is going to make an unwanted tea.

'You're the one who looks like you're having fun.

 When I pointed this out to her, she gave me a smile that she made.

'Sooo. I hate guys like that who seem to think money is everything.

What? You're never going to have a relationship with money again. You'll have to do a complete change of heart.

Are you serious?

 He said that it was unlikely that the merchant would change his mind.

Otherwise, he will die a slow death. Otherwise, they will die slowly. Some people have to die before they can face themselves. Two thousand years ago, some of them went through such an experience and grew up to be called saints.

 After looking at me in disgust, Sasha shifted her gaze to her sister.

'What do you think, Misha?'

 Misha sat still for a while and thought for a moment, then said with a pout.

''I'm going to die...''

If he's willing to die for his beliefs and his money, that's his way of life.

 Sasha doesn't seem to be able to keep her open mouth shut.

'I don't think it's going to be such a cool way to die but it's definitely going to end in misery and misery.

It's like Anos.

 Misha said nonchalantly.


 She called out to me, and when I turned around, the girl with the hood on from earlier was there.

'Thank you. You're a lifesaver.

 She laughs, unbendingly.

'What, it's nothing to be thanked for. I just wanted to ask you one question.

 She looked back at me, horrified.


Do you know how to get to the Great Spirit Forest, Ahartheln?

 Then the girl grabbed my hand with both of her hands and said, "Do you believe me?

Do you believe me?

 Hmm. That's an unexpected response.

"Believe it or not, I know Ahartheln is real.


 The girl rolled her eyes.

'Have you ever been there, perhaps?'


 As she said this, the girl took more bites.

Really? When?

It's been 2,000 years since the last time I was there.

Two thousand years ago...?

 The girl's eyes widened as she was startled again.

'Well, you don't have to believe that. I just need to know the rumors to get to Ahartheln. If you know how to get to Ahartheln, you can tell me that, can't you?

 Then the girl looked down as if she were thinking.

'Of course, I won't say for free. I'll give you what you want.

 She looks up and turns her strong gaze on me.

''Well, instead of telling me how to get to Ahartheln, why don't you take me with you?

 Huh. That's an unexpected offer.

Well, it's easy enough to take you in. What do you want with Ahartheln?

 The girl shushed him.
 Her expression seemed to have sunk in somehow.

'If you can't say it, I won't force you to listen.

 The girl turned over and quietly opened her mouth.

''I don't know...''

What do you mean you don't know?

 She shushed for a moment and then the girl said.

''I know this might sound crazy but...''

"I promise not to laugh.

 The girl smiled as she looked up and stared into my eyes and smiled at me.

'You're a good man, aren't you?'


 The girl nodded, and her face became mysterious again.

''I, you know, I lost my memory...''

Ho. That's a tough one.

'I found myself in this town I think I had to do something, but I can't remember...'

 She speaks haltingly.

'But when I was walking around this city, I heard rumours of the Great Spirit Forest Ahartheln. It reminded me. I have to go to Ahartheln. I don't remember why, but I have a feeling that there is something very important there.

Do you want to remember?

 Misha asked, and the girl nodded.

'I feel like I've forgotten something I shouldn't have. I'm sure there are clues in Ahartheln.

 Well, he doesn't seem to have any ill will.

 I can't see any magic in his eyes.
 Be careful, but there's no harm in taking her with you.

What are you going to do?

 Sasha asks me.

'All right. I'll get you to Ahartheln.

Really! Thanks!

 The girl laughed innocently and grabbed my hand again, bobbing it up and down.

'So, how are we getting to Ahartheln, which is the key?

'Yeah. I'm not entirely sure if this is the right answer, but I'll explain it to you step by step. First of all, spirits are creatures created by rumor and lore, and Ahartheln is a spirit of the lore called the Great Spirit Forest.

Can I have a word?

 I asked, curious.

'Who told you that spirits are born of rumor and lore?'

Oh, no one ever told me about this. It's like I knew about it before I lost my memory. So I'm sure I must have had something to do with the spirits and Ahartheln.

 Demons are less involved with spirits.

 They must have become even less involved after the wall was built in the world. The fact that they knew, through rumor and lore, that spirits would arise, means that they couldn't be the demon race of this era.

 No - not a demon race in the first place, huh?

''Go on.''

Oh, yeah. So, you see. Ahartohern can change its course depending on the rumors. That's why I'm an informant, and I've been collecting rumors about it. A lot of them said Ahartohern is located in Rishalis Meadow. Then there was also one called the Zienus Mine, I think. I think it's one of these.

We know the place is Rishalis Meadow. Were there any rumors of fog?

Yeah. It was. I think the most common rumor was that the moon obscured the sun and that a mysterious mist would rise in the Rishalis Meadow while day turned to night.

'Hmm. Well, then, that sounds like a strong possibility.

Um, wait a minute.

 Sasha says, putting her hand to her forehead.

'What's the deal with the moon obscuring the sun?'

An eclipse?

 Misha muttered.

'That doesn't come around very often, does it? So you wait until then?

Oh, I checked that too. The next solar eclipse is nine days later at 12:27, for about three minutes.

 The Risharis Grasslands are not too far from Derzogade.
 Is that why Knowskalia has set a limit of ten days for expedition testing?

I see. So we can try it, just in case.

'Make the elves laugh in three minutes?'

 Misha says.

'That's the question, isn't it? What would make me laugh?'

 When Sasha turned her gaze to the girl, she said.

'You mean to make the prankster spirits laugh, right? Probably the fairy is a spirit called Titi, and the rumor is that these kids love new things, so they laugh at you when you show them something new and innovative.

Call me novel, but...

 The question is, what would be novel to Fairy Titi?

Well, let's find out. We're leaving. Misha. Let Ray and the others know we're coming.


 I hold out my hands to the girls.

'Let's go ... you heard me just now, didn't you? The next eclipse is in nine days, okay? There's nothing you can do about it now.

No problem.

No problem...

 I returned my palm and concentrated my magic power.
 I deployed a multiple magic circle with about 100 magic circles stacked on top of each other and dipped my fingertips into it.

''Moringa (Lee Guneaus).''

 The right hand wears a pale white glow.
 It's a magic that transcends distance and holds everything in its grasp.

 <With the hand of the Morinara Manchurian (Lee Guneas), I gingerly grab the sky.
 Then, I slowly moved my arm.


 Sasha gasps at the sight before her.
 A part of the sun was missing.

'....the moon is moving...'

 Misha is staring at the moon in the sky.
 If it was her demon eyes, she would have seen that the hand of
''Hmm. It's not so light, indeed.

 I put my magic power into my feet and stepped down on the earth, moving my arms little by little, until the sun was completely hidden behind the moon.

 People passing by were all looking up at the heavens, wondering what the hell was going on.
 The day had turned to night.

Do you understand?

 He holds out his hand again to Sasha, who is still staring up at the sky, stunned.

'One of the stars, it's not me who can't move. Let's go.
