Paladin Festival 3
After that, the receptionist lady rushed back in a panic and took us to the Guild Master’s room.
“Master! I’ve brought Mizzet Galhart with me!”
“Well, let them in~”
Opening the door to the room, a stout male sat on a high-priced couch.
This man was the former Earl Galhart, I believe.
The age was probably in his 50s?
Considering that it was now a hundred years after then, his grandfather or great-grandfather would have been the Klein-kun back then.
If that was the case, he would have heard something about Mizzet when was a child.
We sat down on the sofa directly opposite him.
The receptionist lady seemed to be nervous because she had witnessed the legendary presence, and peeked over while standing straight and motionless by the wall.
…… I don’t think there’s any need to be so nervous, but it’s not impossible to understand. After all, the ancestor of the territory and the origin of the paladin festival, the apostle of God, is right in front of him.
Although it’s not actually a big deal.
“I’ve just heard her say it. Are you the ancestor-sama who followed the nameless God of Mankind into the divine realm of travel a century ago?”
“The Divine Realm? Are you referring to that shrine? Never mind, that kind of thing is irrelevant. Yes, I am Mizzet Galhart, the daughter of the then Galleria Galhart. But I never thought you would easily believe such nonsense.”
I don’t know what the reason was, but this man seemed to be completely convinced that she was Mizzet herself.
Up until a moment ago he had lowered his profile to the enigmatic visitor of unknown origin.
Was it because Argus had done something?
Though these were still just my instincts, the convinced look in his eyes couldn’t make me think otherwise.
“I’m sorry to be late. I am the previous Earl of this domain, who ran the territory until 15 years ago, and my name is Renein Galhart. I am also the great-grandson of your brother, Klein Galhart’s great-grandfather.”
“Oh, so it’s Klein Nii-sama ……”
Renein stood up and bowed deeply before us, bowing his head in greeting.
There was not a hint of arrogance to be seen in his graceful gesture, so humble for a high nobleman of power.
There may also reason because he received an apostle of God, but his gesture was so natural that one would naturally associate it with the fact that this was how he usually treated people.
After he raised his head, Momiji and I began to introduce ourselves, while asking about how well he knew us.
Incidentally, when introducing ourselves we were described as adventurers following Mizzet.
But Mizet looked at me with a look that said, “What are you talking about? You can’t say “I’m a god” after I’ve just appeared as an apostle. You can’t say something like that. Otherwise, not only Renein but also the receptionist behind him would have doubts as to which was true and which was not.”
It would be too much to bear if all the church people in the country came to me, so this is the kind of place where it’s appropriate to muddle through.
We’re only here to show Mizzet what it’s like back home and find out what the Galhart family has been up to since and confirm what Sage told to them, it would be putting the cart before the horse if we were to get too busy with this.
“I’m sorry, I’m afraid you’ve already heard from the Sage, or from Klein who has learned the details from the Sage, what do you know about us, if I may ask?”
“There are only two things I know, the first being that the Great Sage told my great-grandfather Klein at the time about the ancestor becoming an apostle of the God of Mankind. The second thing was that she would probably reappear in the next age, and then when I extrapolated that with the current state of affairs in this age, I immediately thought it was now.”
After asking him in detail, I found that Argus had actually deduced that we would reappear in the near future.
As expected of him! His mind could analyse to such an extent without a hint of contradiction.
Thanks to the message he left, we were able to meet up there so easily. Thank you so much.
“By the way, it just so happens that I want to know the state of the territory of Galhart and how the family has been doing over the past hundred years. Uh, can I stay at the house? Of course Kenji and Momiji are along.”
“Of course you can. The original mansion was built by the ancestor-sama. And it would be a perfect opportunity to hear the legends of our Earl’s family – the adventures of our ancestor-sama”
We finished our dealings with Renein and decided to stay at the Earl’s mansion for the time being.
However, I think Mizzet will probably be satisfied with a 1 or 2 day stay, so it shouldn’t be for long.
By the way, I would like to ask why the Paladin Festival has become the benchmark for the selection of the Brave team for the enlistment test.
I’ve looked into it a little bit before, but since the country is making such a big deal out of putting Brave in the open, it means that the world is facing a similar threat.
It is possible that this has something to do with the “Creation Breakdown” or the conditions for achieving it. That’s why I’m going to take an active part in this matter.
Well, it’s still debatable whether or not I’m going to join the Brave team with Mizette and Momiji.
After all, Player-Creator God have their own way of doing things.
So I’ll just go with the flow.
