An Encounter with the World Tree 3
As I waited in a single room at the hotel, a blonde woman with a rather large wind spirit in tow descended from the sky shortly afterwards.
Long, bright blonde hair tied up with plant vines and a beautiful woman with a ponytail flowing backwards …….
Without a doubt, she was squarely the spirit body of the World Tree that I had seen in the app earlier.
Although this was the first time I saw the sub-god in person, what can I say, the solemn atmosphere was amazing.
Should I say that the whole place was filled with clean and pure air, or is it very sacred?
I could actually feel that it was the real thing.
Compared to this, the aura of this old man, the god of creation, was equal to nothing, but I couldn’t show my frustration in front of the World Tree and the spirit that followed her, who were clearly showing their admiration.
Well, anyway, let’s just play the big man for now.
I’ve decided that this will be my basic posture from now on.
In order not to show any flaws, I will also act like a big man in future.
“You’re late. So, what’s the big deal about the meeting? Although I also have things I must tell you …… but let’s start from your side.”
“We are pleased to meet you, Lord. We are grateful to you for accepting our request…”
“Ah, forget the opening statement. I don’t like to waste time. Can you get to the point?”
Because if the other party greets too formally, I don’t know how to respond. So I had to forcefully interrupt her.
It’s a bit embarrassing, but I don’t know the manners and upbringing that are common in this world.
At most, it’s just an honorific for a superior.
If the other party is a nobleman, that level of honorific may be acceptable, but I don’t think it is possible to use it for a sub-god especially she is a sub-god of my own creation.
It’s easier to communicate in a straight ball style for that.
So World Tree bowed deeply and gracefully and slowly straightened her posture.
“I was rude just now. In conclusion, I have succeeded traced the Demon King who swindled demon who was originally a human, that the Lord’s was playing with, and temporary restraining him. Now, the three great spirits are watching over him, and we are going to kill him……. What is your will?”
Is that the Demon King who swindled the merchant?
I wonder if he was individual who was the mastermind behind that incident, the demon merchant, who talked pleasantly how he received ritual-related knowledge.
But honestly, it’s not like I’ve seen how many bad things the Demon King has done, so even if I’m told that I should kill him if I catch him or not, I have no idea.
That said, it’s a bit unreasonable to ask her, one of the subgods who run this world, to free the Demon King.
And she was acting as if she was rightfully restrained, but I don’t remember asking for that.
Even from the text that I saw in [Life Evolution], the World Tree is set up to adjust to the nature, so I don’t think she has the mission to fight against the Demon King that is spreading in the world.
Yeah, “basically’, that’s the case.
Then, the question is why did she bother to come to me for this report?
What is the purpose?
Well, no matter what the purpose is, my answer is already decided.
“I don’t give a damn about the Demon King. It’s up to you whether you want to boil it, roast it, or leave it behind. However, that is not the task of you the spirits or the World Tree as a neutral existence, but something that should be resolved by the power of humans. Keep in mind that if you easily pluck problems that humans have the potential to solve on their own, it will result in them being unable to grow.”
“This, this is really very sorry …… ! !
To be honest, I don’t think the Demon King’s blah blah blah is something that needs the World Tree lady’s help at this point.
If it’s a foolish Demon King that will cause an extremely serious disaster, surely Heroes and Dragon God will go on business, but if it’s not, there’s no need to help the humans too much.
After all, these guys should have their own jobs as well, however, if they feel they have so much free time that they decide to track down the Demon King, that’s fine, but I don’t feel that much need.
Well, I wouldn’t say that everything was in vain either.
It’s just that there are braves, sages, other up-and-coming occupations, and a multitude of composite occupations in the human side compete with each other.
It’s not a formation that will easily lose, so you should observe the situation a bit before you act.
The World Tree, who had listened to me, shrank into a ball of shame and whispered, “It’s just like the Dragon God’s advice,” and “Everything is going according to my Lord’s plan ……” in a low voice.
Incidentally, it’s definitely not going according to my plan, but in the sense that it doesn’t matter if I don’t barely repel the Demon King, I guess what Dragon God said is correct.
The world isn’t that fragile.
“There’s no need to be so remorseful, everyone fails at something.”
“My Lord, I’m sorry, but I was too superficial …….”
“As I said, that’s fine… Let’s change the topic, can I borrow the spirits hand a little? Well, it’s not much. I just want to get my hands on something in this world.”
Let’s end the report for now and move on to this side of the topic.
As I said earlier, it’s definitely not much, not at all.
That’s right, I’m just trying to get some gold and silver to exchange into money in Japan and yo.
It’s mainly to buy the company.
“Even if you don’t ask anything, we will do our best to help you if it’s the Lord’s order …….But what specifically do you need?”
“Hmph. In order to use it in a certain experiment, I would like you to search for natural minerals such as gold and silver that lie dormant in the ground. I can’t answer how it will be used though, can you?”
Apparently it’s possible.
As expected of a spirit.
Mithrill and Orichalchum are very valuable in this world, but unfortunately, they can’t be exchanged for money in Japan, so the items I’m looking for are only gold and silver.
After some discussion, it decided to use the power of the earth spirits this time to provide me with supplies that have no effect on the natural world.
However, even though the spirits themselves are able to move freely, there seems to be a rather difficult problem in transporting the minerals.
Therefore, it was decided to pick up the summarized items at the initial destination, the Sage Argus place, in one month, and if it was not enough, I would request it again.
All that was left was the method of cleverly converting the treasures obtained in this world into cash in Japan …… Let’s go with the hand of the Onmyouji Clan for that.
Since I’ve been specially commissioned to exterminate youkai, so if my side needs a little help, the other side will be happy to assist, right?
If that doesn’t work, then let’s think of another way at that time.
