IWDFLSB (Novel) Chapter 148




Matisse. If I had to describe his personality in "Return and Walk on a Path of Flowers" in one word, it would be this.

A fool who only knows his benefactor and his sword skills.

I've been curious, even a little, for a while.

What would be the result of removing the goddess's blessing from a fool who only knows Liena and swordplay?

The results were now before my eyes.

"My heart is already racing as I imagine meeting the Sword Saint! Ah, maybe I can finally capture the skill that has reached the level of a god in these two eyes!"

The fool, who only knew how to handle a sword, clasped his hands to his chest and shouted.

"I never thought my prediction would be exactly right."

Now, I analyze the process that led to this situation.

Tara followed my request and brought Matisse, who had returned to the imperial palace, to the annex.

At first, Matisse vehemently refused to talk to me, but when I mentioned the story of the Sword Saint, he sat down even though he doubted its truth.

For your information, it is true that he respects the Sword Saint and wants to become his disciple through "Return and Walk on a Path of Flowers."

In the novel, Liena tracks down Matisse's whereabouts to make his dream come true and forge a friendship with the Sword Saint but ends up in vain.

This is because the Sword Saint, who did not want to be associated with the secular world, was completely solitary.

"Well, it wouldn't make sense for Liena to easily find the best swordsman on this continent."

If that were possible, many powerful people coveting the Sword Saint's skills would have found him first.

However, the main character is the main character, and Liena has a chance to meet such a genius in the second half of the novel.

During the monster wave, the Sword Saint appeared to save people from the great disaster that struck the empire due to the influence of the awakened evil spirit.

As the representative of the goddess, the Sword Saint actively assists Liena in her efforts to defeat the evil spirit and also trains Matisse as an additional benefit.

After the evil spirit is sealed again for some reason, Liena tries to send Matisse to the Sword Saint. However.

"Definitely, the dream I had when I was young was to become the official disciple of the Sword Saint."

In the novel, Matisse suddenly kneels before Liena and says something.

"But my dream now is Lady Liena herself. Who saved the world! I will definitely become a Sword Saint with my own strength beside the young lady, so please watch over me in the future."

It was a touching scene that showed Matisse's sincere loyalty, as even his dreams changed towards Liena. Until I knew the truth about the Goddess's blessings.

Even without the blessing, Liena was Matisse's benefactor.

She provided considerable support to Matisse, who, due to poverty, could not afford to buy a proper sword.

"But is it worth giving up your unique dream in life?"

Becoming a disciple of the Sword Saint doesn't mean your connection with Liena will be severed, right?

Above all, if you liked Liena so much, all you had to do was study with the Sword Saint and then return to Cassius.

So, after releasing the blessing on Matisse, I decided to throw the bait of "Where does the Sword Saint currently reside."

I knew that the place where the Sword Saint currently resides is a forest located at the southern end of the Soro Kingdom because it appeared in the novel.

For your information, the Soro Kingdom was the place where I bought a house to move to after my divorce.

"As it has swordsmen, it is the safest country after the empire during the monster wave."

It's not that I wanted to make that place my new home without any reason.

Well, that's another story now.

Matisse seemed skeptical, but his expression changed when I presented him with a newspaper article.

It was an article from a small newspaper in the Soro Kingdom published a few years ago, containing information that several monsters had been killed en masse in the southern forest.

It was an incident that was buried without receiving much attention because the Soro Kingdom was on the outskirts of the continent and it was not an incredibly rare event...

Matisse murmured quietly after carefully reading the brief article.

"Ah, dark blue scars remained on the corpses of the monsters. It's similar to the characteristics of his sword skill."

The swordsman who revered the Sword Saint did not miss the mentioned content in passing in the article.

"I have to go check it out immediately!"

Matisse, who had a simple character, quickly became excited and did not hesitate to make decisions.

There were no signs of hesitation or doubt for the sake of Liena.

In the novel, the man Liena dreamed of seemed somewhat disappointed as he checked the ferry ticket I gave him.

"I wanted to bid farewell to Lady Liena in person before leaving, but the ship's departure time is approaching, so there's no other way."

The fact that he considered Liena his benefactor was no different from before, but he did not show blind loyalty that he would give up his dreams to be by her side.

I told him, feeling once again the fear of the blessing.

"It's the last ship to the Soro Kingdom this month, so if you miss it, you'll have to wait quite a while."

"It's not a place with much interaction with the empire, but I didn't expect there to be so few ships."

Matisse's words were correct.

Indeed, there were several more ships to the Soro Kingdom, but I canceled them with Terence's help.

"I'm sorry to those who wanted to go to the Soro Kingdom. If only Matisse goes, we'll quickly restore it to its previous state."

I swallowed the words of apology in my heart.
