Two Saints wander off into a Different World – 6

PAGE 1

They looked dumbly at each other for a second before smiling, then they high-fived each other.

 

“What is that?”

 

Grudo asks.

 

“It’s something you do with friends when you are happy and having fun.”

 

Maki explains.

 

“Hehe. Will you do it with me then?”

“Of course, here.”

 

Slap!

 

“This is quite fun.”

“Chihaaru, with me as well.”

“Aeris? Okay.”

 

Slap!

 

“Ooh, this is good.”

“Chihaaru, me too.”

“Yes, Prince Edwy.”

“Just call me Edwy.”

“…Edwy.”

 

Slap! Edwy laughed happily.

 

“King?”

“I am fine.”

 

Maki’s gaze turned to Zynis.

 

“Aye.”

 

Slap! It was more of a low-five, but his tail was wagging energetically. He smiled as his eyes met Maki’s.

 

“Have we settled down now?”

“Yes.” “Yes.”

“You are guaranteed clothes, food and shelter. And you will also be given a monthly salary. I believe it is 1,000,000 a month. Sera?”

“Yes, your majesty. However, previous Saintesses have used very little of it. And so there is an additional, most enormous fortune remaining.”

“Then you can freely use that as well, as long as it does not harm any civilians. Do you understand?”

 

The two nodded.

 

“There is more I would like to talk to you about, but that can wait for tomorrow. When you feel that you are ready to listen again, please let me know. Though, it would help if you did not take too much time.”

“We understand.”

“Chihaaru, Maki.”

“Yes?” “Yes?”

“I cannot apologize for it. But we are very grateful that you have come to our world.”

 

The king gave a deep bow. The others in the room followed.

 

They couldn’t quite tell him that it was fine, that they did not care. There was no replacing what they had lost. They stayed silent and nodded. That was all that was needed now.

 

For some reason, Aeris, Zynis and the prince were escorting Maki and Chiharu back to their room. Then, Maki suddenly stopped.

 

“Chiharu, let’s not go to the room now.”

“That’s right. Uh, Sera?”

“What is it?”

“We want to eat lunch outside. Can you prepare it for us?”

“Of course. The Saintess Villa is already prepared for your arrival. Will you go now?”

“No, somewhere close by. We can go right now.”

 

Sera began to order another servant.

 

“Well then, please excuse us.”

“Excuse us.”

“What, me too?”

“Prince.”

 

Aeris and Zynis then dragged the prince, who had looked like he wanted to stay with them.

 

“That was my chance to get to know them! And I knew a good place to eat.”

 

The prince said dejectedly. Aeris replied quietly.

 

“Edwy, you must not be fooled by how cheerful they appear. It has taken every previous Saintess a whole month to be able to talk about the mark on their heads. And they have done it in just one day.”

“I think the marks are beautiful.”

“And yet, what would you think if such a gem sprouted from the palm of your hand all of a sudden?”

“That…”

 

The prince looked at his hand.

 

“I wouldn’t like it.”

“And they are women. It is not something easily accepted.”

“But, they were well enough to want to go outside.”

 

Aeris sighed.

 

“It was probably too depressing for them to return to their room.”

“Depressing…”

“It makes you think of so many things. It is better to be out under the sun at such times. Maki and Chihaaru must have similar minds to us elves.”

“And I am sure that they would prefer to be away from strangers at such a time.”

“Do you really think so, Zynis?”

“I do. Do not worry, prince. Maki and Chihaaru will come to terms with what happened eventually.”

“Alright.”

 

Edwy said begrudgingly. Then he suddenly smiled.

 

“Even so, when they said ‘how much?’ I have never seen father become speechless like that before.”

“Indeed. It was a sight to behold.”

 

Zynis laughed. It was a warm, bright day in the Sun World. They looked out the window and saw that Maki and Chihaaru were slowly walking toward the garden. They sent a silent prayer in hopes that the spirits of the Saintesses’ would also become sunny.

    1. Purrhaps old age?

      It sure would not be a surprise and this is a “light” read after all so do not expect too much dark fantasy where the saints lose their power and are murdered/send off to die when that happens. Even dying in a fight or accident seems unlikely.

      This work basically depicts a world which should be, i.e those few many in power are for once honestly grateful and not using them like tools (like fools).

    2. Old age is my bet too. I mean, seriously, they treat her like she should be wrapped in cotton wool. Afraid of airships, cancelled military expedition, it’s like treating her even above the king. And she seldom leaves her residence. So I doubt it’s anything seriously dark. They need her alive too much and she doesn’t even do anything other than survive.

  1. Chiharu and Maki and Aeris and Zynis already paired together. The prince? He is just a third wheel in my opinion

  2. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    If the time flow about the same for both worlds, then the previous saints were from drastically different generations. These two are practical modern women, very different from their grandmother’s generation. If the previous saint died from old age, she could have been anywhere from 60 to 100 when she died. Or older. And these girls are in their twenties.

  3. Thanks for the chapter!
    The Japanese, especially if they have a healthy lifestyle, tend to live to quite an advanced age & stay mobile & clear-minded longer too. So the predecessor was born at a time when the world & Japan were so different. She had probably never heard of elves & beastmen, only youkai & creatures from Japanese mythology, which are not exactly sweet & cuddly, lol. No wonder she was scared. Commercial flying only began developing in the 50s, after the planes became sophisticated enough during the war.
    Now assuming she died in her 80s or 90s, & that she was transported young, since there is more than one reference to M&C being of drinking age this time, she was transported somewhere around the 1940s. Not easy times in any case. & wether she was a commoner or came from a rich family made a huge difference too. In any case, women back then were supposed to be quiet & demure. If she was still a kid, it’s even worse.
    A huge difference with adult, modern, sophisticated & educated women who already worked, had life experience & exposure to a lot of western concepts & transmigration/summoning stories.

  4. I really want to know more about the previous Saintess.
    She sounds like the most boring, quiet, timid and mild mannered girl ever…
    Marry me please 😫
