Chapter 3-20 : World Tree Morning Dew

 

「What do you need that for?」(Mylia)

「Isn’t that obvious? We’re going to fix Jasmine’s eyes.」(Titania)

「Eh? We can fix her eyes!?」(Mylia)

「Oh, right. Normally, humans don’t know about World Tree Morning Dew. Basically, you can fix congenital eye diseases by dropping it on the eyes. We usually use it on elven children who are born with poor eyesight in the elven village.」(Titania)

「That’s such an amazing item!」(Mylia)

「I know, right?」(Titania)

Mylia jumped in joy and bowed to Titania.

「Master, thank you for telling me about it!」(Mylia)

She then jumped at Jasmine and hugged her.

「Jasmine onee-sama, we can fix your eyes!」(Mylia)

「Will I… be able to see clearly like a normal person…? Really…?」(Jasmine)

Mylia was happy but Jasmine somehow looked a bit doubtful.

She had been living with poor eyesight for seventeen years since she was born. It was hard for her to believe that she would be able to see normally.

「Onee-sama, Master is a sleepyhead but she’s not a liar. You can trust her!」(Mylia)

「Who are you calling a sleepyhead who does nothing but sleeps all day, huh!?」(Titania)

Saying that, Titania poked Mylia’s cheek with her index finger.

「I, I didn’t say that far… Alright, let me correct myself. Ahem! Onee-sama, Master is a super beautiful and the strongest elven witch who never lies. You can trust her!」(Mylia)

「Good girl~」(Titania)

Titania raised the corners of her mouth and patted Mylia’s head.

「A..haha… If you say so, Mylia.」(Jasmine)

「Jasmine onee-sama, after your eyes are fixed, let’s go to various places! Ah, you can also choose the man you want to marry with your own eyes!」(Mylia)

(I’ll fix Jasmine onee-sama’s eyes no matter what!)

With that determination in her heart, Mylia smiled at Jasmine.

(Mylia… She got me out of that house… and now she wants to fix my eyes… She’s so kind… but…)(Jasmine)

「Umm, Master-sama. No, Titania-sama.」(Jasmine)

「Yes?」(Titania)

Being called out, Titania turned her gaze to Jasmine.

「I heard that the World Tree is a dangerous place. I would rather stay like this than let Mylia go to such a dangerous place…」(Jasmine)

「Jasmine, you’re such a good girl. Butー」(Titania)

「Onee-sama, you don’t have to worry about me. I may look like a weak little girl but I have enough power to kill elder dragons!」(Mylia)

「Fufu. She’s right. I doubt there’s a place in this world where this girl can’t visit.」(Titania)

While saying that, Titania stroked Mylia’s head a bit violently and messed her hair up a little, but rather than being upset, Mylia was happy that her master complimented her.

The World Tree is a legendary tree. Humans have been searching for it for over a thousand years but none of them have ever found it.

There were rumors saying that that place was a very dangerous place that couldn’t be entered by humans.

Leaves, branches, dew, and other things that could be taken from the World Tree were high-quality materials that could be used for various things.

「Now, Mylia, look at the map.」(Titania)

「Okay~」(Mylia)

Without knowing the fact about the World Tree, Mylia spread the map and let it float in the air with Gravity Magic.

Meanwhile, Jasmine, who couldn’t see the map clearly, was listening quietly next to Mylia.

「Do you know what you will find if you keep flying east from the Atwood Territory?」(Titania)

「Umm… If I remember correctly, there’s a deep valley that is said that you won’t be able to climb up again once you fall into it. I’m pretty sure that valley has a name but I can’t recall it.」(Mylia)

「It’s called Wyvern Valley. It’s around here.」(Titania)

Titania pointed her index finger to the floating map, showing the location of the valley.

「Wyvern Valley is a precipitous valley. Well, it’s basically a big and deep hole that spreads from north to south.」(Titania)

While saying that, Titania moved her finger down.

「If you fly over this valley and through the sea of trees beyond it, you will find a giant barrier. The World Tree is inside that barrier.」(Titania)

「I see, I see.」(Mylia)

「Because of that barrier, humans can never find the World Tree. Therefore, I will use clairvoyance and Phone Magic to keep in contact with you and guide you to get inside the barrier.」(Titania)

「Understood. I’m counting on you, Boss!」(Mylia)

Mylia bent her waist while keeping her back and neck as straight as possible and keeping her arms on her sides like an employee who bowed at her boss.

「Fufu. What kind of bow is that? Anyway, please don’t forget what I said.」(Titania)

Titania giggled seeing Mylia’s Japanese-style bow.

「Alright. Ah, Master, how long do you think it will take? Chloe onee-chan will be worried about me if I don’t return to the royal capital soon.」(Mylia)

「You can return with Teleportation Magic, right? So I don’t think it will take long.」(Titania)

「Oh, you’re right. Okay, there’s no problem then.」(Mylia)

Mylia clenched her fist and put it on her chest to motivate herself.

「I can’t wait to see Chloe onee-chan’s surprised face when she finds out that Jasmine onee-sama can see normally!」(Mylia)

Mylia looked at Jasmine with sparkling eyes. She looked excited somehow.

Jasmine never thought that Mylia was actually this cheerful. She squinted her eyes, trying to see Mylia’s cheerful face clearly but she couldn’t.

She gave up and smiled. She can’t wait to see Mylia’s face when her eyes are fixed.

「Mylia, please don’t push yourself too hard… And… Thank you… I feel like crying again.」(Jasmine)

Jasmine’s eyes became teary again. Mylia’s kindness filled her heart.

「Jasmine onee-sama, you’re my precious sister. You can leave it to me!」(Mylia)

「Fufu. I will return your kindness someday. Be careful.」(Jasmine)

「Un!」(Mylia)

Mylia nodded and launched herself into the sky. She then started flying east, aiming for the World Tree.

  1. You know when mylia described jasmine I kinda wanted to hug her too lol plus if jasmine looks almost like mylia but older than does that mean her mom was super cute before she probably was forced to marry that thing, I’d like to think the only sibling who looks like the father is robin

  2. I hate series with short chalters, it’s like why bother reading if it takes like 2 minutes to read a chapter.
    You get all excited for 2 minutes, then the dark void grabs your feet and drags you back to being bored as fuck and empty.

    1. Personally when I read a WN with consistently short chapters (or wordy but zero plot development “non-chapters”), I tend to put it in a special “buffering” reading list (I track all my WN’s on NovelUpdates). Then, I can pop back every now and then, read 10 or more chapters at once, depending on release frequency. Allows much better story engagement. About to move this one to that reading list too I think.
