ke she was going on a picnic, just like when she was younger.

“You are early?”

Mero’s voice could be heard from behind her.

Mero too?”

“I am here because I am the youngest.”

Mero appeared with all kinds of luggage on his back.
As the youngest of the warriors, he was handling all the troublesome tasks, and this part was no different from the humans and the Rans.

“Damn it, you are the youngest.”

Sarah just shrugged because she was selected for the mission but only as a companion.
In addition, since she was a direct disciple of the current King, she didn’t have to do such things.

It was better to train or do something.
And since these were orders from above, Mero couldn’t say anything.

And it wasn’t that hard either.

Putting the luggage down, Mero glanced at Sarah.

“Your skills seems to have improved.”


“Yes, what can it be? You should know your condition the best?”

“I have never heard anything like that.
I am not sure if my skills have improved because I am always being beaten by my instructor.”


With the sparring that Karlovan does, there was no way the learner would know if their skills had improved.

Mero knew better than anyone else since he had learned from the same person a couple of years ago.

“Then, shall we test it before the others arrive?”

“A spar?’

“Let’s see how arrogant the kid can get.”

Sarah laughed at that and turned her stick into a sword.

Seeing that, Mero was shocked and burst into laughter.

“I won’t let you off so easily.”

“I will improve my skills that way.”

You will lose ten times.”

“And you will regret it.”

Sarah kicked the ground and sprinted for Mero.

There was still some time for everyone to gather, so it shouldn’t be a problem.
More than anything, it seemed like a good way to calm her nervousness.

‘Because this is a mission.’

Sarah’s eyes shone.
And she moved for Mero.


“You grew a lot.”

Mero tapped her on the shoulder with his sword and said that to Sarah, who was on the ground.

Sarah didn’t seem to have any energy left to answer.

Well, since she was beaten quite a bit, her body hurt.

At first, she tried to spar with him moderately, but then she became more reckless than she had planned, and the attacks that came for her were fierce.

Since she controlled her strength, she wouldn’t get seriously hurt.

“What did this bastard do?”


At that time, a fist flew to Mero’s head.

Mero grabbed his head as he screamed in pain.

“Who is it?”

“Who? Brat!”

Gen frowned and spoke to Mero.

“We will be leaving soon, and you made a child like this!”

“W-We had some extra time, so we wanted to relax our bodies….”

“Is this relaxing your bodies? She is just a child! Ugh.”

Gen sighed and checked Sarah’s body, and fortunately, her condition wasn’t bad.

Her body might throb, but she had no major injuries or wounds.
But it was still a problem that she was in pain an hour before they had to leave.

“If Sarah is having a problem, you carry her on your back and run, get it?”

“Uh? What? I have to carry!”

“Then you shouldn’t have done that!”

“We sparred in moderation! If I had used more of my strength, I would have been at risk.”


“Her skills have improved to the point where I cannot even recognize her.
So unknowingly.”

“You… are talking back!”


Mero, who spoke the truth, was beaten again.

Gen shook his head and fed Sarah the Rans’ medicine.

“Bring Sarah the moment she gets up.”

“Damn it.”

“Damn it?”

“I will do it.”

“You loach.
The only thoughts in your head are ways to get out of trouble.”

Seeing Gen walk away, Mero couldn’t stop his head from shaking.

“What are you doing?”

At that time, Sarah, who had recovered, looked at Mero with a sad face.
Mero looked at her and then cleared his throat.


“I was awake, but I couldn’t move.
I just didn’t talk because I was hurt.”



Her body still throbbed, but it felt a little better than before, as if her opponent was being considerate.

“All set!”

The signal was given, so Mero looked in the direction from which the sound came.

“Tell me if you are having a tough time.
It isn’t difficult to carry you.”

“Forget it.
This much is alright.’

“Strong woman!”

“You are saying strange things again.

Sarah gave a cold response to Mero, who was laughing as they moved.

A tree that was as tall as the Black Tower.

With a huge thickness equivalent to that of a strong nation, its branches spread out wide enough to cover the entire sky.

It was so huge that if you saw it up close, you wouldn’t realize it was a tree.

Its thick leaves covered the sky, and only darkness was below it.

In fact, it was so dark that it looked like the bottom of an abyss.
The sky was covered with so many branches that no light could get in.

If tens of thousands of spheres of light that illuminate the darkness hadn’t floated in the air, no one would have been able to see an inch ahead.


This was the place where the sound of the wind blowing could be heard.

“Seems ominous.”

A man looked at the World Tree and mumbled.
The ears of the man were pointed, his skin was as pale as jade, and his turquoise hair settled down gently on his body.

A woman with similar ears next to him answered.

And as expected, she was a woman with purple hair and beauty that couldn’t be resisted.

“The World Tree is drying up.”

She was Hiyan.

The manager of the World Tree and the head of the High Elves.

She spoke with a frown,

“The spirits are crying.
The time is coming.”

The voices of the spirits couldn’t be heard by normal people, but the High Elves could.

However, the problem was that, even though they could hear them, there was nothing they could do.
So they asked for help outside.

“If it is the Water Spirit King, he can help extend it to some extent.”

They didn’t know if it was possible, but that was the only thing they could believe in right now.
