153-Escape from Ahartheln

 When the magical body I flew to Delzogade was completely burned up, my consciousness returned to the Spirit King's castle.

''They've put up a ward,''

 Misha says.
 When I turned my eyes to Delzogade, I saw that darkness was lurking all over the Mid-Haze area.

 I'm not sure I've ever seen this kind of magic before, but is it a type of wardrobe magic just like Misha said?
 I'm not going to be able to get a good idea of what's going on inside the mid-haze. It's a good idea to be able to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

I'm not going to be able to get my hands on them. It's a good idea to be able to have a good time with them. I'm not sure what to make of it.

Lord Anos!

 Turning in the direction of the voices, the girls of the Fun Union had just run through the door.
 The fact that they were all there meant that the Hidden Wolf probably didn't put them through the ordeal.

''What you just saw in the ........''

 The images of the magic broadcast were sent to the girls through a thought transmission (leaks).
 I'm sure you've figured out the general situation.

 Eren said with a worried look on his face.

''Misa.......has turned into a fake demon king.......?

'Not that it has changed. Originally, only half of the Mass was made up of the rumors and lore of Avos Dilhevia.

 The girls have a divine look on their faces.
 Ray opens his mouth.

''If ... if the rumors disappeared, Misa would be dead. If it didn't disappear, she was destined to become Avos Dilhevia. I will destroy you, as a child of God.

 For now, there was no smile on his face.

''Since I........created an imaginary Demon King, she.......''

 Ray bites his back teeth gingerly.
 His gaze is steely, and emotions that cannot be expressed come and go in his chest.

'It's past. It's not the past that we should be thinking about now.'

 As he said this, Ray looked up and nodded.

'We must defeat Avos Dilhevia as soon as possible. The rumors and lore of the Demon King of Tyranny contain many things on the human side. And the royalist ones, too. If his personality is formed on that basis, he is not a gentle king.

 It's easy to imagine that from Avos Dilhevia's statement on the magic broadcast.
 For starters, the mixed-blooded demon race would be the first to suffer the consequences.

''........The Spirit God Human Sword will surely be the trump card to defeat Avos Dilhevia......''

 Ray says in a heavy tone.

 The brave canon defeated the tyrannical demon king with the Spirit God Human Sword.
 That rumor and lore was brought by the humans and should have been a weakness for the great spirit Avos Dilhevia.

''But if you defeat Avos Dillhevia, Misa-chan will die, right?

 Eleonor said and Zesia nodded.

'.........poor thing........'

 Sasha was pondering with a serious expression.

''.........But Misa is half spirit and half demon, right? At least half of her is definitely Avos Dilhevia, and if that disappears, Mass won't be able to survive.......

You'll get the genie disease.

 Misha muttered.

'What? We'll just have to find a way to defeat Avos Dilhevia alone. It's impossible, but it's that impossible, and I'm not the one who whines about not being able to do it.

 As he says it, he turns to Ray.

"Two thousand years ago, I was just giving up.

 He says with determined eyes.

'This time, I won't give up anything.'

 At that moment, the castle shook with a gogogoggle.
 No, it's not the castle that's shaking, it's this great tree of education itself.

 Then countless branches grew in the room and covered this place as if they were creating a cocoon.

'Hmm. You're not going to let me out of here, Enyeunien.

 The great tree of education echoes a hoarse voice.

'I'm sorry. I'm sorry, but I will not let our spirit mother's children be struck down. You will remain in Ahartheln.

 <I try to use my Gatom magic, but space does not connect well.

It's a pity. This is a remedial cocoon. This is the cocoon of remedial classes, the backbone of the tree of education where students who fail fail are forced to return to their studies. Unless you take the make-up lessons to the end, you will not be allowed to leave the school.

 The spirits are on the side of the Great Spirit Reno.
 So it's only natural that they side with his real son, Avos Dilhevia.

It's not hard to understand why you feel the way you do. I can't just sit back and listen to what you say.

 He drew a magic circle in front of him and put his magic power into it.
 A jet-black sun shot out and struck the cocoon wall with a tail of black light.

 However, although it was somewhat scorched, the wall was unharmed.

'In vain. Within this cocoon of education, all violence is forbidden.

Law. But my violence doesn't stop here.

 He drew a magic circle again, and it turned into a hundred cannons.
 <The Hell Flame Annihilation Cannon (Geo-Glaze) was fired, concentrating all of them to a point on the wall without missing a beat.

 A thunderous sound resounds and the supplementary cocoon shakes violently.

''In vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain ... in vain.



 The jet-black sun had broken through the wall of the cocoon, creating a great wind tunnel.

''Your power is absolute when it comes to education. So much so that even those whose magical power is higher than your own can be trapped.''

 Once again, a new branch grew and the cocoon tried to close, but the area around the hole continued to spread black, preventing it from blocking the exit.

'But you see, Eniyunyen. It is not education to impose remedies on those who have not received a failing grade.

 I said as I confronted him.

'It's corporal punishment. If it's violence against violence, I won't lose.'

 I head towards the hole I've vacated, as Enyeunyen roars.

'Let's go,'

 We took off running and passed the Spirit King's castle.
 The clouds drifting around us packed in, blocking our path.

'Don't be afraid to jump.'

 Through the clouds, I flew.
 Next, Ray, Misha, and Sasha flew.

 Zesia and Eleonor followed, and finally the Fun Union girls leapt.

 My vision drifted at high speed, and we fell as we looked at the great tree that came up.
 When it was almost time for the ordeal to be over, I used
 The others had also landed safely.


 Misha turned her magical eye to the destination, where there were dozens of demons.
 All of them have magical powers that cannot be compared to the demons of this era.

 They are my men from two thousand years ago.
 The Dark Lord must have succeeded in rescuing them.

 But something is wrong.

"Anos Voldigord.

 A demon tribe stepped out and pulled out a demon sword.
 His name is Nigit. You are the second best swordsman in my unit, next to Sin.

"I obey your command and claim the source of your life.

 With the voice as a command, the demons all come towards you at once.
 At that time, a red spear appears from the void and attacks Nigit's body.

 He quickly catches it with his magic sword and jumps back in a big way.
 The demon tribe's advance has stopped.

''It's a troublesome one. ''That's why I said I underestimated the divine race.''

 The one who appeared to stand between us was the Underworld's Iggess.

''That son of God seems to have taken away your two thousand year old command. Half of them have already been transferred to Derzogade. Along with the god race that took over the body of the Cutthroat King.

 If Melhayes has sided with Avos Dilhevia, does this mean that Nowus Gallia can also interrupt the expeditionary test with a business order?

 The Great Spirit Avos Dilhevia was born from the rumors of a tyrannical demon king, and also bears the order of the Son of God. It is not unnatural to side with Nowsgaria.

"We don't have time to sit around here and wait. It's time to go.

 Lowering his center of gravity, the Dark Lord pointed his magic spear at the demons under his command.

I'll take care of it. I will not let you destroy it for your own good.

'Apparently, after two millennia, you've become a little more rounded, Pluto.

 Without turning around, Edgess said.

'As I said before, it just happened. It's just that you and I have the same goal.

 Yeejus pointed the Red Demon Spear at the floor and stabbed it.
 It wasn't underneath Yeejus's feet that it penetrated, but directly underneath me.

 A hole was made in the floor by Dhiid Atem and I could see downstairs.

'Be careful. My men are tough to beat.

Don't worry about it. I haven't been playing around for 2,000 years.

 We jumped into the hole and went downstairs, with magical light and magic spears intersecting beside us.
 I was about to proceed to the way we came immediately, but I stopped in my tracks.

'....Hmmm. The path has changed....

 It has been a maze of paths to get here. Of course I remember it, but my memory is useless if the maze has changed its shape.


 I turned towards the voice and saw Lyna there.

'We're going out, aren't we? I can find my way.

 It's likely that Ygess rescued him from the gods' hiding and told him to be here to guide him along the way.
 For someone called the Dark Lord or something, he's a fickle man.

Unfortunately, I'm in a bit of a hurry. I want to leave as soon as I can.

Yeah. I know what I'm talking about. This way.

 Lyna said, and ran off.
 She pushed her way through the intricate maze as if she hadn't gotten lost.

''........Hey, what is this.......?''

 As I reached the halfway point, I saw the maze in front of me transforming.
 New paths appeared, dead ends formed, and it was changing at a dizzying pace.

'It's okay. I can see it.

 The maze is changing by the minute, and yet, Lyna is still pushing through it without hesitation.
 In the end, the floor begins to wave and take our feet.


 Lyna lost her balance.
 A single white flower fell from her bosom, and the walls of the maze swallowed it up.


 Lyna reaches for that wall.
 But only slightly later, the white flowers disappeared into the wall.

 Lyna stopped and stared at that wall.

'We're going to be trapped if we don't get going soon.

 Eleonor said, and Lyna nodded to shake off her hesitation.

'Uh, yeah. I'm sorry.'

 I grab her shoulder as she tries to run.


 I touched my fingertips to the wall just now and sent my magic power.
 I see a single white flower behind the wall that has been deformed into a squishy shape.

 It beckons to me with my fingertips and I take it in my hand as it flies towards me.

''It's important, isn't it?''

.........maybe........ Thank you.....

 Lyna took the white flower and tucked it back into her pocket.

 Then she started running again.
 She continued through the dizzying maze, stopping in front of a door.

 When Lyna opened the door, she saw the entrance to a large tree with drooping vine grasses beyond it.

 Sunlight shone down on the trees around them.
 Although I was able to get out of the great tree of Enyeunien, it seems that I can't use the Transference (Gatom) unless I get out of this forest.

Can we get out of the forest?

I don't think we'll be able to get out the usual way now that Ahartheln is blocking the exits.

 Lyna looks around.

'Titi, are you there?'

 Lyna calls out to the fairies.
 But there is no answer.

'Please, I need to get out of here. There's someone I need to see.'

''I know you have an appropriate personality, but Titi is a spirit too, right? I doubt you're going to help me get Anos out of there.

 Sasha gives me a look as if she's not sure what's wrong.
 But the next moment, I heard a voice.

'Are you in trouble?'

Who's in trouble?

It's Lyna.

Lyna is in trouble.

 Fairy Titty and her friends emerge with the fog.

'Thank God, Titty. I want to get out of here. Is that okay?

 Titi flies around Lyna.

'We've been told not to let it out,'

No Demon King, no Demon King, no Demon King's friends.

Because Avos Dilhevia is awake.

Leno's baby. I have to protect him.

 Titi and the others didn't look like they were going to fight over it.
 But Lyna appealed once more, with a serious expression on her face.

'Please, Titty. Help me. This is the last thing I'll ever ask of you.

 Then Titty and the others gathered in one place and looked at Lyna's face.

'Then I'll be back.'

I don't mind if I do.

No one can know.

Don't tell me.

 With a big smile on her face, Lyna nodded.

'Yeah, I promise.'

 The fairies take off into the depths of the forest.

'This way,'

This way.

 As they chase after Titi and her friends, a fog gradually begins to drift around the area.
 The fog grew deeper and deeper, obscuring the trees and flowers in the forest.

What do you see through the fog?

I see something.

Can you see the meadow?


 A familiar place appeared in front of me.

'Bye, Lyna,'

I'll see you later.

See you later, Lyna.

I'll see you later.

 As Titi and the others disappeared, the fog gradually dissipated and we passed through the Great Spirit Forest.
 The area had turned into the Risharis Meadow.
