Chapter 4-39 : Stuck On The Chair (part 1)

 

Mylia kept flying toward the Atwood Territory while protecting Chloe and Hypnus who were flying right behind her.

When the three were about to reach the village they saw a crowd of people in the village square.

「Onee-chan, look. Why are the villagers gathering in the square?」(Mylia)

「I don’t know…」(Chloe)

Wondering what was going on in the village square, Mylia sped up. Hypnus then sped up too, keeping up with her.

Bonnie saw the three descending from the sky, and as soon as they landed on the ground, she ran toward them hastily, shaking her long black hair.

「Mylia, Chloe, you’re finally back!」(Bonnie)

「Bonnie onee-sama, what’s going on here?」(Chloe)

「Father ーI mean, our former father, Aaron, is going crazy. He’s frightening the villagers.」(Bonnie)

Bonnie looked toward the center of the crowd as she said that.

In the middle of the crowd, there was Aaron whose arms and legs were tied to a chair. He was screaming while looking around at the surrounding villagers with a mad expression.

「This village is over! The Atwood Territory is over! You’re all gonna die! You hear me!? You’re all gonna die along with those filthy immigrants!!」(Aaron)

(Uwahh… He looks like he was possessed by an evil spirit… Should I go to the church to ask for some holy water just in case?)

「Hey, look! It’s Mylia-sama!」
「Chloe-sama is here too!」
「They’re finally back!」
「Thank goodness!」(villagers)

The villagers who looked somewhat anxious let out a sigh of relief when they saw Mylia and Chloe.

On the other hand, Aaron looked so mad when he saw Mylia. He spat on the ground and shouted.

「You damn ungrateful absent-minded daughter! I’ll never forgive you for taking away my territory and my position as its lord! Eventually, you will be punished! You ALL will be punished! Everyone here is gonna die and the Atwood Territory will meet its end! Gaahahahahaha!!」(Aaron)

Aaron laughed like crazy. He looked like a bandit leader who was going to burn down a village or something.

Thinking that talking with her insane former father would be a waste of time, Mylia turned her face away from Aaron and looked at Bonnie.

「Bonnie onee-sama, do you know why he went crazy?」(Mylia)

Bonnie lowered her eyebrows, looking a bit troubled.

「Father… Excuse me. Ahem! Aaron has been like that since this morning. I’m not sure why he became like that, but I often saw him being chased by the griffons. I don’t know what he did, but the griffons looked so angry. They were pecking his butt hundreds of times while chasing after him. That’s probably why he went crazy.」(Bonnie)

Aaron once was beaten up by Hypnus for trying to take Chloe hostage, but he didn’t give up. He tried it again the next day, and this time, Hypnus ordered the other griffons to beat him up.

Chloe wasn’t aware of what was happening back then because Aaron was hiding far away from her.

Since then, the griffons always tried to peck him in the butt whenever they saw him.

「Umm… Being pecked in the butt so many times can indeed make you crazy, but… Is that really the reason?」(Chloe)

「I think he went crazy after struggling in the toilet. I mean… the griffons pecked him in the butt. His butt must be badly damaged, so it must be very painful for him toー」(Mylia)

「ーMylia, you don’t need to say it. I know what you mean.」(Chloe)

Mylia, Chloe, and Bonnie glanced at Aaron with pity in their eyes for a moment.

「What!? Don’t you dare look at me like that, you ungrateful bitches!!」(Aaron)

But then they immediately looked away and sighed, thinking that the madman didn’t seem to need any pity from them.

「I wonder why the griffons hate him so much.」(Chloe)

「Isn’t it obvious? It’s because he’s a bad guy.」(Mylia)

「Yeah, but… There must be other reasons. Hypnus, do you know something about it?」(Chloe)

「Kuu.」(Hypnus)

While wondering, Chloe turned her face to Hypnus and asked.

Hypnus answered her question with a low-tone squeak and looked at her with sharp eyes as if saying, “Anyone who messes with Big Boss is an enemy!”

「Hmm… I don’t know what he’s saying, but somehow I can tell that he really hates Aaron.」(Chloe)

Saying that, Chloe stroked Hypnus’ neck.

She then remembered something and clapped her hands.

「Oh, right! Mylia, the premonition! I think it has already begun!」(Chloe)

「Aa! I’ve been so busy lately that I completely forgot about it!」(Mylia)

Mylia and Chloe looked at Aaron with their eyes wide open.

Aaron shouted at them but they completely ignored him.

「He said this territory is over. If my guess is correct, then he must have already obtained the magic stone that can summon a meteorite like you’ve told me.」(Chloe)

「Meteorite… So, is it really going to happen…?」(Bonnie)

Bonnie, who had also heard about the premonition from Mylia, looked around at the villagers. As the future mayor of Lavender Town, she was really worried about her people’s safety.

「I have set up a giant barrier around this village, so I think we’ll be fine, but I should check if he’s carrying the stone or not.」(Mylia)

After saying that, Mylia approached Aaron and stretched out her right hand at him.

Aaron, who was yelling at her, suddenly fell silent for a second and looked at her with a panicked face.

「No… No, no! What are you gonna do? Are you going to use magic on me!? You’re not gonna hurt me, are you!? I’m your damn father!」(Aaron)

「Not anymore. Now shut your mouth unless you want to get hurt!」(Mylia)

「Khh!!」(Aaron)

(Alright. Now, how do I do it? I can use Clairvoyance to see through his clothes, but then I might see things I don’t want to see… Ah, that’s right. I can create a spell that works like X-ray scanners at airports that are used to see the contents of the passengers’ luggage!)

Mylia was so poor in her previous life that she had never been on a plane, but she knew about that machine.

She remembered she saw a scene where the machine showed the image of the contents of passengers’ luggage in a movie.

(Just like an X-ray scanner, I’m gonna try to make a spell that can detect magic items.)

Mylia closed her eyes, imagined an X-ray scanner, and began to circulate her magical power inside her body.

Seeing her lavender hair being swayed by the magical energy circulating around her, the villagers began to make noises.

「Mylia-sama is going to use magic on him!」
「He’s done for!」
「Aaron is finally going to hell, huh?」(villagers)

Seeing Mylia’s serious face and hearing the villagers’ reactions, Aaron began to break into a cold sweat and writhe on the chair, trying to escape.

However, because his hands and legs were tied to the chair with ropes, he tipped over and hit the back of his head on the ground.

「NOOOOO! Stop it!! Stop iiiiiiitt!!」(Aaron)

  1. Imagine that backfired due to amount of magic power and he is exposed to full of radiation…
    Well she using magic I guess it won’t be radiation but would be funny…

  2. Good Lord I can’t believe I’m this excited for a supposed tragedy to happen! I blame the author for making us wait through all these side stories for so long….

  3. Looks like the chapters list of the series is not updated anymore on this blog, unless you check the home page’s recent uploads you won’t find it which is mildly annoying. And add to that the fact that Novel Updates doesn’t give a link to the page anymore so now I have to manually search it every time. Seeing the lengths I go to to stay updated, if it doesn’t show my interest for the story I don’t know what will.

    1. I’m sorry. the page is bugged. I keep getting ERROR 400 every time I update a chapter. You can check NU for updates for now until the web owner fix it
