I Possessed the Villain in the Lily Novel chapter 143
143 – Soldier (9)
The night is deep in the Great Forest. Deeper than the trees rooted in the forest, the stars dig into the sky. When the greens are eaten at night and fall asleep for a while, they fill the leaves with brilliance. Like the halo that adorns the head of an angel, the stars make the forest night sublime.
A star fell from the night sky. Finding a shooting star is not a big deal in the Great Forest. However, the story was a little different this time.
That shooting star was on its way to a place with a clear direction.
While running away, the Prophet saw a star approaching out of nowhere and shouted in surprise. I can’t afford to try prophecy lately, so I can’t see the future.
The light hit the ground and a loud vibration shook the forest. Birds awakened by the vibration flew away and obscured the stars. Even the sky was eaten up by the shadows, and even if I didn’t close my eyes, my vision was stained black.
Smoke gushed out from the dug ground, like something from a fire. Through the clouds that descended to the ground along with the stars, bleak eyes flashed.
“Who are you?”
The Prophet asked while trembling inside but pretending to be composure. But he had no answer.
“Who are you? What have you come to this forest for?”
I asked again in a quiet voice.
“You’re a prophet and don’t know that?”
A slightly harsh answer came back from within the cloud. It was a familiar voice.
“You should know in advance.”
It was an attitude that made people mistakenly think they were having a fight. It really wouldn’t have been any different. He was a person who did not show his face even in the big incident of runaway of the demon king candidate.
In fact, there was no clue that Iva was a prophet in the letter. She just ran into her senses. The reason she wrote her letter before moving as an excuse was simply to make things happen quickly.
That ability to act and intuition was the correct answer.
Stella looked around the forest that had the energy of night. Like Icarus challenging the sky, the arrogant trees stretched endlessly. In the distance between the trees, I could see a tree the same size as a mountain.
It is the world tree.
Stella was sure that this place was an elven forest. There is no place like this to hide a person. It was a place where outside invasion was impossible and people wouldn’t bother looking for it if they could somehow get permission from the elves.
“I’ll ask you directly. What about now?”
After Stella started probing casually, she couldn’t overcome her dizziness and vomited.
“…Don’t do this again.”
Holding her shoulders, Lilia stumbled.
During her return, Wiz also stumbled on the ground as if she couldn’t get used to it no matter how many times she tried it. She didn’t even want to do the crazy thing that made her fly through the sky at an unprecedented speed.
“Hmm… Just like Lillia said. Yes. It’s kind of like that…”
Innis, who had experienced the power of various demons while working as a magician, tried to endure it somehow, but even so, he could not cure his dizziness.
Stella sighed as she looked around at them.
“Hey, you guys barely got it… When are you going to find this bar?”
Flinching, the Prophet shook his shoulders slightly.
“Are you here to find a candidate for the demon king… Already?”
“I never thought there would be a means to find it so soon… It’s quite different from what I thought. Anyway.”
The Prophet, who stimulated Stella’s nerves by adding nonsensical words again, continued.
“The situation is not very good right now.”
Some arrows flew towards the women who were still staggering. Stella jerked her body away. In this night, she showed off the skill of cutting arrows, but as if that was only the beginning, the sound of arrows cutting through the wind was directed toward them.
“Oh, it looks like they’ve been chasing you.”
Stella moved in the direction the arrow was flying. Before the irons reached the spot they were originally aiming for, they acted and knocked them off one by one.
“…【The wind is in my hand.】 Wait, what are you talking about?
An invisible layer of air formed on Stella’s window after using her magic. The floor was a wall that flowed like a river. Every time it landed near an arrow, it disrupted its direction and dissipated its force, causing it to fall weakly.
“… I guess… Things aren’t looking too good…”
Wiz covered his brain with annoyance.
“The Prophet… Now Iba… Is in the World Tree…?”
Lilia asked in surprise. The Prophet nodded her head.
“That’s right. He’s already inside the World Tree. That’s why he sent you a letter. If he hadn’t been in a place where he could confine himself much more safely than my seal, he wouldn’t have been able to do so out of anxiety.”
Stella fretted, wondering if her own presence in her moment was just a nuisance. Her answer, however, came back and alleviated her anxiety.
“So that life can still live and breathe in the world. Let’s talk while moving.”
“Now. Wait a minute! I don’t know who you are… But why are you being chased?”
Innis, unfamiliar with the existence of the Prophet, asked. The Prophet moved his feet without hesitation and answered. Quickly at the movement, others moved his feet as well. As soon as Lillia came to her senses, she moved her wand. The arrows that had nowhere to go fell here and there.
“…Tell me about that magic later.”
“Is that important right now?”
Stella looked at Lillia with her envious gaze, and Lillia turned her head coldly as if the gaze was bothersome. In the meantime, the Prophet opened his mouth.
“I put him in the World Tree…And in the process, I had to tell a lot of lies. Originally, if I didn’t get caught, I could spend a comfortable year in this forest of demons without any problems…”
“Is there a problem? No, my slave bastard, as long as he’s done something…”
“This mad witch, who is the slave?”
“Is that important right now?!”
Lilia screamed. The sound echoed through the forest, and the sound of a shot from behind came flying like an arrow.
“Criminals, come quietly and receive the aura!!!!”
Wiz let out a deep sigh. If he had come to the forest of elves as he had planned before, he would have been disturbed quite a bit. She could figure it out.
“…Yes. We’ve got a problem. A lot of that.”
The Prophet turned his head and saw the Demon, who was making a presence in the night’s invisibility.
“The World Tree has started malfunctioning.”
Eternal Demon. A being that had been alive since the appearance of the hero and the existence of the demon king, and was simply located there without any change while the rivers and mountains around it changed many times.
The demon started rampaging.
“Let me tell you an interesting fact. Shortly before you came, I was ruled by day instead of night.”
“Yes? What is that?”
“Ah, the sky just started to change.”
A ray of dawn rose from within the dark forest. The light was infinitely red. It wasn’t going up, it was going down to the ground. It was sunset.
“Is this dinner?”
“After the night, not the sunrise… The sunset…?”
“As you can see, this elven forest is not normal.”
The Prophet calmly continued.
“Neither time nor space. Nothing is working properly. By the way, I can’t go out, so please be aware of that.”
I wonder if the arrogance of the elves, who were different from ordinary humans and maintained their lives without leaving the forest, made this land sick. The World Tree made this land more special than anything else and imprisoned them in the forest as they wished.
They were talking about serious jokes like finding Iba and imprisoning them, but suddenly they themselves were imprisoned.
“Welcome to the Elven Forest.”
“…I know why I came to this world…Is this the story?”
I lost my mind and inadvertently touched my forehead. The old man in front of me looked at me sadly. It was unpleasant because it seemed to pity me.
“As expected, you didn’t know anything… You must have read the book before you came to this world, right?”
“Doesn’t everyone usually read books…”
Well, you must have drank water before you died. It’s not the same obvious proposition… I sighed heavily.
“Listen to it first. And that book must have been a book with the same characters and people as this world, as if it were a novel depicting this world. Is this also correct?”
Now it’s getting a little interesting. I nodded. The old man also smiled and nodded his head in satisfaction. Does this old man also know ‘The Nun Butterfly’?
“hehehe… I knew it. Listen carefully, you idiot.”
I fell in love with the story, and the old man’s nickname for me, stupid, didn’t bother me too much. It’s true that I’m an idiot, and now more than anything like that, I needed the knowledge to fill my ignorance coming out of that guy’s mouth.
I was very focused right now. To the extent that I forgot all the classic masterpieces that I barely remembered. For a moment, I forgot about the people waiting for me outside the world tree.
Thinking back, I wondered if there would be anyone waiting for me. They are all better than me. Why are you obsessing over the past? Oh, who am I thinking of now. Was there anyone out there? Where are you?
Oops, maybe it’s because I didn’t sleep, so my head was dizzy.
Once I thought about it again, I thought it might be because I was sleepy rather than concentrating. However, seeing the old man’s words being heard clearly, it seemed that was not the case again. Or it could be the funny state of being sleepy and focused at the same time.
“That book is the invitation to come to this world. After all, reading a book is just a starting point. The important thing is will. If a person who reads a book has a strong will to live right before he dies, he can be invited to this world. Yes. You become possessed by someone who is destined to die.”
The old man skillfully finished his explanation. Then, did I come here because I wanted to date before I die? For just that reason? That I was starving for people enough to satisfy the condition of being invited to another world? Um, I guess not. The longing for love is not that deep.
I just want to be a person. A person who has enough qualifications to be able to open his heart to others as a person.
I’m not some kind of s*xually addicted psychopath. The conditions for being possessed are met by wanting to be in a relationship? Could it be that she has been quite lonely since Spica died? But why was it love? What was I thinking at that time when I wished for it? I couldn’t remember. Maybe it was because I didn’t sleep.
“Who are you to know that?”
The old man laughed.
“Don’t ask when you know everything, stupid.”
I don’t know. I don’t know. Just guessing
“A lad from another world like you.”
