I Possessed the Villain in the Lily Novel chapter 140
140 – Soldier (6)
“What are you talking about? How dare you mock the lofty World Tree!”
The woman who seemed to be the leader of the group spoke. From now on, Iva thought to call that woman the village chief.
“What am I supposed to do to make fun of my close friends? Aren’t you guys making fun of the world tree right now?”
Eva, whose tiredness was severe, countered the comment with her feigned annoyance.
“A thousand years ago, the World Tree and the Demon King were close friends. Neither of them were the ones who stretched out their hands toward the sky without any cover. I came to see the world tree branching out. From that point on, a competition broke out. In the way that the world tree returned to the sky that the demon king had invaded. In this way, six days, night and day, the color of the sky was changed several times in this Great Forest. Changed.”
It is surprisingly easy to find a story about a king befriending an impersonal body. At the end of this story of competition, the ending that they became close friends is especially.
“In the end, this competition ended with the victory of the World Tree. The demon king fell asleep and fell asleep. After that, the two became close friends. The distinction between good and evil was determined by humans, and the demon king and he did not cling to anything like that. I felt friendship by acknowledging the power of the World Tree. Of course, the World Tree did not say anything, but it conveyed its intentions through the swaying of leaves, the shadows drawn through sunlight, and the fluttering of flower petals. All these movements were words and conversations.”
The Prophet whispered behind him.
“What’s wrong with the way you speak? Why suddenly written language…”
Ivar hit the Prophet’s calf with his heel. The Prophet collapsed at the pain running through his bones. When I’m excited, my tone sometimes goes like this. It was one of Spica’s influences on him.
She used to use slightly awkward grammar when she got excited, as much as she learned her words from her books.
Eva kept her emotions under wraps and continued.
“In the end, the Demon King was subjugated… But here now! The most legitimate successor has returned!”
Like a sunset when the long outstretched wings touched the sky, it was dyed red as if the end of this day was being stamped. It was like dripping blood into a clear river. A distant red bloomed higher than the trees.
“What is this…!”
But it was quickly reaped. Just as drops of blood melted and disappeared in a torrent, the red energy was quickly sucked away in the direction of the World Tree. It was because the World Tree, deeply rooted in the sky, absorbed and purified the pollution.
It happened in an instant, but it was not uncommon for the World Tree to show its strength, so many people were surprised and amazed.
“Ohh… The World Tree gives me strength.”
“The story from earlier was true…”
The same scene as Iba’s remark about competing with each other occurred. While kneeling down and worshiping the world tree, the confusion spread.
“I am a candidate for the Demon King. I am the only close friend and successor of the World Tree. I am a being who has inherited the power and memory of the Demon King.”
Eba didn’t blink an eye and lied that he was the same person as the demon king at that time. Ordinary elves could not know the knowledge that even the Prophet did not know. Right now, Iba informed and enlightened her as if she had become a god of knowledge.
“…What? Nonsense! The demon king was subdued a thousand years ago. It’s absurd. If there is a demon king candidate, are you going to say that there is also a hero candidate!”
I thought I really didn’t know anything because I was in the habit of not going out. Eva laughed lightly, saying that it was a good thing. As much as he does not know, he is not in a good condition for accepting new knowledge.
When I thought that I was now teaching those high and arrogant people from the position where I was always taught, a lot of laughter leaked out. Of course, most of them are lies.
At this time, the Prophet quickly entered.
“For those of you who were only in the forest, I don’t know, but the world has changed a lot. Magic has advanced, and technology remains the same. You don’t know the convenience of a train. The convenience of being able to move your body in an instant without a single mana…”
It was a strange way of speaking to boast about the things he had seen outside.
“Are you preaching to us the power of unbelievers with ears! This sinner! The traitor who left the forest with his sister even though he was given the title of a priestess, don’t make fun of him!”
So why do you add useless words? Eva supported the Prophet with a small click on her tongue.
“Don’t be quick to judge, you foolish piece of the world tree. Why did he leave the forest? It’s because there was a name of the world tree.”
The shrine maiden of the World Tree. That role is someone who serves the World Tree by his side for the rest of his life and preaches its meaning to the people. She is the only one who has the right to break into the World Tree’s interior, and can receive the World Tree’s will from within.
But according to the Prophet’s words, the World Tree expressed its will more than 300 years ago. All I have to do is clean and manage that wide area of the World Tree. In fact, they are slaves who are bound to live only by the World Tree for the rest of their lives. A position to wither away with nameless rights and power.
“Yes, that’s right. I left the forest to bring him to this forest on the order of the World Tree.”
The village chief asked in surprise.
“But why didn’t you tell me until now! After all, it’s all lies…”
“If I said that at that time, wouldn’t I have treated you as heretics, saying that you were lying to get out of the forest!
As the Prophet spoke, the elves shut their mouths. No one could come up with a good excuse. It seems that they are stabbed too. It was invisible to the naked eye, but it was clearly visible how deep the chasm was between them.
In a way, it was natural.
Originally, it was said that the position of the shaman of the World Tree was to be given to Lyla, not the Prophet. It was her ulterior motive to exile her most useless and intrusive woman in this forest by handing over her position as a shrine maiden.
“The shrine maiden of the World Tree says! We have to serve this person to the World Tree, so get out of the way!”
Layla shouted loudly through the raining sky.
“Teacher! Can’t I use portal-like magic?!”
“I’m not your sister~ Even I can’t use that level of movement magic!”
I was nervous. Her heart went blank. The feeling of filling the lake with white concrete. I was heartbroken.
Sister, my sister. She is proud of herself and loves her.
She went back to that terrible place again. It couldn’t have been.
Elves are conservative. There was no way to properly save a person who had returned after violating the rules of the village.
So she ran through the sky at a speed never before reached.
She goes through a loss, and then she goes through another loss right after. What could be more horrifying than that? There was no time to feel the afterglow of sadness. Soaked in the raindrops, I don’t know if the dripping is sweat or tears.
Layla gnashed her teeth and ran.
Why do bad things always happen one after another?
She had no way of knowing about her.
“Elves are tradition-oriented. They don’t suit a race that lives their whole lives to play and make a living… But they give us the biggest action principle.”
Is it because of that?
“They have no choice but to respect the principle of the shrine maiden’s job, which is to carry out the orders of the World Tree. No matter how infamous a position, what can she do when she insists on that?”
“Is that a tradition?”
“Yes, it is.”
After many twists and turns, they succeeded in approaching the World Tree.
“But why didn’t you think of making up a fake name?”
“How could an elf who worships the World Tree think of creating a lie…”
The Prophet lowered his voice to a whisper.
“And the world tree is a living thing. It is also a majestic and dangerous being that can understand languages. If your opinion is distorted and angered, something could happen to this forest. Besides, elves are not fools, Even if it means the world tree, I don’t believe it without a cause. Of course, idiots are right.”
The Prophet laughed at the need to add a sharp criticism of the elves.
“The cause was good this time. The lie earlier was pretty good. Even I almost got fooled. No wonder. The whole story is true.”
The World Tree used to be huge, but seeing it up close like this was really majestic. It felt like watching a waterfall or a cliff rather than a tree.
“I won’t be out for a year with this…”
Looking at that, Iva muttered bitterly.
“I’m glad I haven’t seen you in a year.”
“I don’t get to see your face either… Wait, I don’t usually see your face.”
In a strange place, Iva removed the prophet’s hood. Beautiful emerald eyes and hair greeted him.
“Oops! What are you doing!”
The Prophet immediately put the hood back on and kicked him in the calf. Because it was so painful, Eva also fought back. f*ck! An intense sound hit his ears and calves.
“f*cking with someone.”
Eba smiled and said.
“After I go, keep your promise. Be sure to tell the kids my regards.”
“You’re the one… Write… Promise… Please keep it… Really… Do something like a demon king candidate every time…”
The Prophet patted my leg and groaned in agony. Eva giggled when she saw it. Gradually, the corner of his mouth went down bitterly.
It was futile. I should have hurt the people I love forcibly because I did something wrong, and should I have my freedom restricted like this? The guilt wriggling inside was like a worm. Intestine-eating worms. It wriggled violently, as if it would spit blood and vomit out of its mouth even now.
I became jealous of the elves who were free in this forest. A sense of inferiority welled up. This was good. It means that you have been given another driving force in life.
After all this is done…
The sun went down and the stars rose. The moon was hidden from view by the trees, but the little stars shimmered like dew on the branches and lit up the world with their own colors.
The wind blew. The smell of soil and leaves, unique to the forest, stung my nose. The wind brushed the sky and brushed the stars. The light-laden wind came down to the ground and brushed the leaves, trees, and grass, and then brushed against a person.
As if being pushed by the wind, Iba stepped forward and reached the World Tree as a representative of the starlight and wind. The wind that gathered in him spread around the world tree, and the stars revolved around it. There was a vast amount of light, like the circumnavigation of a star in a century. The wind blew endlessly upward like a gushing force. Toward the far end of the world tree rooted in the sky.
Inside the wind and the stars, there was also Iba.
“Then I’ll go.”
He closed his eyes without regret.
When I opened my eyes again, the forest was nowhere to be found, only empty space greeted me.
Lilia spent the night reading. As her night unfolded to her, she could not help but give her eyes. She didn’t want to pay her attention to anything other than that.
The eyes are red. There were scabs on her fingers. Both were marks of some kind. It was the marks of sorrow engraved on his body. But they were dwarfed by the sorrow in her heart.
My tears were dry and I didn’t eat anything, so only gastric juice came out of my stomach. Her lips were dry and her hair frizzy.
She did not return to her hometown either. He had no face to see his mother. He had for the first time firmly declared that he would be responsible for something, but it turned out like this. Her mother also fell in love with Eva. She must be sad in her own way. But she knew that if she went, she would use up all her energy to suppress her sorrow and comfort herself.
‘…Will I die?’
No, you must not die. He still has the task of being a wise man, and if he commits suicide just because one of his seeds is dead, he has no face to see him who died first. He died claiming evil for someone else to live, and he died after that?
If the circumstances were the other way around and Lillia had died and then he committed suicide, she would have spit after the fan so that Lillia would kill him she met in her underworld.
His hair swayed in the wind. There was no scent from her, overshadowing the scent of her flowers that he liked. Her eyes, which were as colorful as butterflies, were filled with only gloom, and it was cloudy like fog.
It was colorless and odorless enough to be called a flower.
She wasn’t motivated. I didn’t want to see something mysterious and enjoyable, I didn’t want to go on a trip, I didn’t want to drink alcohol or tea. I had many reasons to live, but I had no will to live.
The sense of collapse of loss is that I couldn’t adapt even if I wanted to adapt. She just sat there like a diseased plant and stared blankly at the sky.
A shiny bird came over her head.
It was a glass bird.
What it’s holding is a piece of extremely decorated stationery.
The paper fell like rain or snow, like tears welling up in her eyes again.
Lilia’s hat reached first, and then the letter hit the ground. Lilia’s eyes, which had been reading the night, turned to the ground for the first time in a while.
It was a single medicine given to the diseased roots. It was a blood letter under the guise of a will, perhaps Germany under the guise of medicine.
