I decided to meet the priest. Even though I might end up having to kill the priests, I still wanted to see them more than not. So I decided to appear in front of the priests.
Of course, I wasn't alone. There are many more people beside me than just the two of them, like Dong and Lan and the elves. Plus Sifo, Kamiha, and Frene.
Freneh and Dong were the first to step out in front of the priests.
The swordsman could not see Freneh. He did not look at Frenais at all. He just looked at Mr. Dong like he was on guard. On the contrary, the priest is looking at Fresne with his eyes wide open. I knew he could see Fresne.
"Who are you?
"...... Wait a minute. Mr. Sheehan, I have a question for you.
What are you waiting for ......?
I can see the girl, but you can't?
A girl? What are you talking about .......? The only thing in front of you is the beastman man.
A girl, he said firmly. This priestess can clearly see Freneh. He's aware of the existence of Frené.
Frené glances at me. I nodded, and Frené appeared for all to see. The woman's eyes are wide open. The woman's eyes are wide open, and she's reaching for the long sword at her hip with an uncanny look in her eyes.
For both the swordsman and the priest, Dong-san and Fresne were strange beings who appeared out of nowhere. He has no idea whether they are his enemies or his allies. Therefore, the swordsman's response is more natural. However, the priest has no such expression on his face. What was in the priest's eyes was more of a joy.
A being invisible to man. A non-human being. Are you a spirit?
The priestess is looking at Fresne. He's looking at her with envy.
"What if I am?
I've never seen a genie before. It's an honor to meet you.
Hey, genie. I have a question for you. You don't know the Divine Child, do you?
I'm sure you've heard of it.
What will you do if you find him?
Both Dong and the swordsman were watching their conversation closely. I'm also listening, trying to hear the answer.
I wonder what the priest would say. What do they want, what are they looking for, and are they looking for me? Depending on the answer, I can't let them leave. Such a choice is frightening, and I don't want to make it, but for the sake of our future, we must be prepared to make such a choice.
Put your hands together and pray as you wait for the priest's answer.
---- I have been commissioned by my country to bring back the real Divine Child.
When I heard those words, I almost despaired for a moment. I thought, "Oh, I might not be able to bring her back alive. But the priest continued.
But the priest continued, "----, but I'm not going to do it. I am a servant of God. That's why I don't want to act against the will of the Divine Child, who is the beloved son of God. Perhaps she does not wish to be protected by the High Priestess. It is because of this thought that I do not wish to do so. As a servant of the gods, I want to follow the will of the gods and the will of the godson.
So said the priest.
A real god child, the priest said. Does this mean that the temple has decided that my sister is not a child of the gods? And I don't know why they're looking for me or how they got here, but they're looking for me.
The priest looks Fresne straight in the eye and tells him that he has a mission, but he has no intention of carrying it out.
'---- I want to serve you, Godson. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that. So, if you know Kamiko-sama, please let me know. I would never do anything to offend you. I will give you everything I have, including my life, please.
The priest said with a look of certainty that Fresne knew about me. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'm not the only one. I don't want to accept something that heavy because it scares me.
Frené nodded his head in agreement. And then he glanced at me. I stepped out in front of the priests. A few of us came out of hiding, the swordsman's face scrunched up, but the priest's eyes lit up as he came towards me.
"It's an honor to meet you! Godson!
And without hesitation, he shouted those words.
---The girl and the priest 1
(The girl, who was probably a priestess, stepped in front of the priest. Then she called out to him as if she were sure it was the priestess.
