The truth about Wolfanea.
“Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi.”
“Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi.”
I imitated the Kabaddi’s movements Rin saw on the television in the past. Moreover, I kept chanting Kabaddi without breathing. The Evil was completely frightened by my expressionlessly regrettable and incomprehensibly agile movements, and the spellbound-like chanting of Kabaddi.
“Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi, Kabaddi.”
And so, Judas-sama collapsed while screaming. He immediately got up with… a troubled expression.
“… It has apparently withdrawn. I cannot feel its existence whatsoever.”
The place was wrapped in silence.
“Mhm, all according to plan!”
I puffed my non-existent chest proudly. Yeah, I got carried away midway, but in general, it went according to plan!
“… Rosarin, what did you do?”
Dirk asked with his head tilted puzzledly. My actions certainly must have looked incomprehensible from the sidelines, huh.
“I understand now!”
As expected of My Darling! He understood!
“I seem to be hated by the Evil, and it didn’t seem to want to be touched by me, so I made up my mind that I’m absolutely touching it! It seemed to be scared by the Kabaddi in the second half, so I tried my best to scare it away!”
“… As a result, the Evil hid in fear.”
Judas-sama couldn’t find the situation believable.
“What an insane lass… I’ve never heard of someone scaring the Evil away.”
Chita was shocked. It’s fine, everything worked out just fine, after all!
“And I have a spell for you, Judas-sama.”
I thought so before, but Judas-sama is quite the natural airhead, isn’t he!? Kabaddi… well, it might work, though.
“What is it then?”
“Frankly, it’s ‘Happiness’.”
Everyone except His Majesty went “Huh?” absentmindedly. Eh? Is it weird?
“The Evil is something that amplifies negative emotions, right?”
“Then, you just have to be happy so that you don’t have any negative emotions! Autosuggestion is important! To be frank, if you look up, you will go up. If you look down, you will go down. You determine your own happiness!”
Judas-sama seemed a bit convinced. I still have more to tell you!
“Judas-sama is in perfectly good health. How do you feel?”
“… I’m happy about that.”
“Judas-sama can now control the Evil with his bracelet. You can now go anywhere. How do you feel?”
“Judas-sama has a kindhearted little brother that always worries about you. How do you feel.”
“Unexpectedly, you have little pieces of happiness all around you. The meal is delicious, you made someone else happy… it’s you who determines whether you are happy or not! Therefore, you have to rethink for yourself just how blessed you are, Judas-sama! You will be even happier from now on!”
“… Yeah… I’m happy.”
Tears spilled out from Judas-sama’s eyes. For now, it will be possible to prevent the Evil from gaining any more power.
“As expected by the Saintess chosen by the roses.”
“What, is Rosarin-chan perhaps the Rose Saintess!?”
“Finally, has our Lord finally appeared!?”
Shushu-san and Leon-san’s eyes started sparkling after hearing Ojiisama’s words. Only I couldn’t keep up with the development. No, Dirk too! I’m glad to have an ally!
“Rosarin… as expected of my Lord! To think you were the Rose Saintess… no, it just means that my sight wasn’t wrong!”
Jess looked satisfied as well. Someone, please explain!
“Our Magic Panther Clan has one more thing to protect. And that is the very Roses of Light. The one chosen by the Roses of Light is our hope of defeating the Evil. To serve the Hero chosen by the Roses of Light is our other mission.”
“A, a Saintess event!?”
Ahhhh, I remember now! I ended up remembering it now!? I saw it! I saw the Roses of Light in the game! It was an abandoned mansion in the north of Wolfanea… it was a secret event unlocked only after the King route was started!
Did I stumble upon a garden? I thought. The plants before me were all withered so I thought to myself whether I could fix that with Greenery Magic, and when I casually used the spell, the withered plants turned into shining Roses of Light… however, I did not end up clearing the King route, so I don’t know how this secret event was related to the main story. However, because this opened up after starting the King’s route, I’m sure it is related somehow. I tried to save the spirit before finishing the route, but I failed.
In the end, all I know is that the Heroine was too late. The Roses of Light had been revived, but the spirit was already worn-out, and used its last powers to grant divine protection to the Heroine. Then, the secret attribute, the Holy attribute, was unlocked. Come to think of it, that spirit looked exactly the same as Chita. How did I forget about this!
When I went to the castle after this event, I was called the Rose Saintess for some reason… but that was it!?
Dirk tilted his head.
“No, I’m just talking to myself. Do you know anything about it, Chita?”
“Well, I had my hands full from just not letting the roses die… so I don’t remember much. There’s something important… that I was entrusted with, I think.”
However, there’s something that I’m curious about then. Just how did Judas-sama endure until the Heroine came with no bracelet?
“Shushu-san, please answer me truthfully.”
I asked Shushu-san, the type of person who can’t tell lies the most.
“… The Golden Lions and the Magic Panthers have the ability to… exchange their lives to seal or kill the Evil, right?”
It was no longer a question, but a conviction. Shushu-san opened her eyes wide in surprise, but that confirmed it for me.
So that’s why they weren’t in the game. In exchange for their lives, Judas-sama got seven more years to live. In the worst case scenario, it wasn’t only their lives that were used. Just imagining it made me shudder.
I wonder what that sad, yet gentle and kind King was thinking at that time?
Everything matches. You won’t be able to start this route unless you have a strong New Game Heroine. You can’t save him otherwise. The relics of the Salvation Saintess were all modern weapons… everything played part in order to defeat the Evil.
“I will be your Lord! Under one condition, self-sacrifice is prohibited!! Let it be Evil or whatever, I will deal with it one way or another!!”
“Fufu, as expected of my Rosarin. I will help you too.”
“I will be relying on you, Dirk. We are going to get busy! The victory will be decided in these seven years!”
This is probably the biggest death flag for me as well.
I’m not going to be a Villainess! I’ll never die, and I won’t let anyone I care about die either! I was determined to give everyone instructions.
