Chapter 134 – Girl and priest – Part four
I want to be friends.
I want to be friends with everyone if I can, but I know that sometimes it’s not possible.
Sometimes we just can’t understand each other.
No matter how much I want to be friends, it doesn’t matter if the other person doesn’t.
But this priest does want to get along with me.
The problem is that those feelings might be too strong.
If he wants to stay and be friends, I’m ready to accept him.
I’m probably the miko… No, according to mister Ilma, who received that divine message, I am the miko.
Maybe I need to get the word ‘probably’ out of my head.
I don’t know if what mister Ilma says is true, but I do know I have powers that other people don’t have, and I want to use them to protect everyone.
If I’m going to accept that I’m special, I’m going to have to get ready to live in that position, just like miss Lan says.
I’ve never thought about ‘using’ someone before, but if I’m going to get along with mister Ilma, I have to be careful with what I do or say, because my influence is too strong.
I’m worried that I’m not going to be able to do this, but if I start thinking like that, I’m not going to do anything.
I ask for advice from miss Lan and the others, and in the end we decide to accept mister Ilma and the magic swordsman.
I have some worries about this priest that people say ‘believes’ in me, and I’m worried that my words may lead him to act rashly.
I also have concerns about the magic swordsman that’s always with him because I don’t know what she’s thinking, but I decide we should take them in.
Obviously, it’s also decided they are going to be under watch.
I go to mister Ilma and tell him we’ve decided to let them stay in the village.
He happily smiles.
“Yes, what is it miss miko!!”
“People in the village, are very important to me.
So… Don’t do anything, unnecessary.
If you’re going, to do something, talk to me, first.”
There’s the danger that mister Ilma might follow even things I mumble without thinking and do things he thinks are for my sake.
Miss Lan and the others say so, so I should talk about this first.
If I can make mister Ilma understand that people in the village are very important to me, maybe he won’t do anything that’s bad for them.
Maybe by saying this I’m stopping him from causing problems.
He responds by nodding enthusiastically and without hesitation.
It really looks like he’ll agree with everything I say, like my words are everything to him.
It makes me think of my sister.
In the village where I was born, everyone blindly believed everything my sister said was right.
My parents and the other villagers all tried to make sure whatever she wanted came true.
As I remember this, it makes me realize once again that I have to be careful with what I do and say.
We guide mister Ilma and miss Shehan to the village with their eyes covered, so they don’t know where it is.
Mister Ilma has no problem covering his eyes, and miss Shehan reluctantly agrees too, because mister Ilma is doing it.
They remove the blinds when we reach the village, and mister Ilma’s eyes start sparkling.
“So this is where miss Lerunda lives!”
This village that has only recently taken form.
The spirit tree is in the center of the village, but it hasn’t recovered yet.
I keep giving it magic energy, but the spirits contracted to the elves are still resting.
Aside from the spirit tree, it’s a normal village, although there are different kinds of people living here like beast people and elves, and their houses are shaped differently.
So why is he so excited I don’t understand.
“I don’t think it’s anything to get that excited about…”
“No miss Shehan, this is where the miko lives.
That alone may be enough for it to be recognized as holy land.
This is where miss Lerunda lives, of course I am excited!”
Miss Shehan sounds exasperated, and mister Ilma responds enthusiastically.
Holy land… That feels weird.
Seeing mister Ilma so excited just because I live here makes me a little worried.
Can I really stop him from doing anything rash
—Girl and priest – Part four
(The girl that is probably the miko invites the priest and the magic swordsman to the village.
No one knows yet what influence this will bring.)
