“… I am a bit tired.”
Fioria’s mana was on the verge of drying up from the use of “Genesis”.
Unable to stand any longer, she fell backward towards…
A soft and fluffy sensation stopped her.
“You came for me, Mofumofu.”
“It’s because I had a bad feeling. For master to feel this exhausted, tomorrow it might rain spears.”
“Next time, let’s make that magic. It will save more energy than making angels.” *Yawn*
While letting out a yawn, she rubbed her cheeks on Mofumofu’s hide.
The long hair that is effective against the winter cold felt like high-quality silk.
The nice sensation started to lure Fioria into sleep.
“Rest easy. Our tribe will take care of the rest.”
The witch Beatrice was already nowhere to be found.
Although she escaped back to the Black Forest using teleportation, she left behind a magic beast as a souvenir.
The three overlapping roars shook everything in between the heavens and earth.
The name is Cerberus.
Famous for being the watchdog to hell. It was a giant beast with three heads.
With four huge limbs like tree trunks, just by walking alone, it created deep cracks on the earth.
The ferocious gaze of the beast glared at Mofomofu.
“Gaaaahh. (Oi, hand over the woman)”
“Gigigigigi. (She’s emitting the smell of light, I can’t stand it)”
“Guuuu! (We are the witch Beatrice’s greatest creations. Don’t think of us as just another Cerberus. We can kill you in a few seconds you stray dog.”
The body that was given to it was far stronger and tougher than any normal Cerberus.
From Beatrice’s countless modifications, it gained an overwhelming amount of power.
“Bubububu? (Don’t even try, a defective dog like you can’t even hope to win against me)”
Mofumofu who replied with the same language as the dogs.
“Gaaaa? Gooooo? (Ha? The hell is this dog saying?)”
“Gigigigigigigi…. (Even though you just a magic beast yourself. There is always someone better than the best.)”
“Geregeregere! Gurururu! (Hahahaha! You think you can win against the Cerberus? It’s the Cerberus!)”
“Wooof! (For being just a Cerberus you sure bark a lot. Go my children, it hunting time!)”
Countless amounts of howls mixed together.
The ones who dashed out were not Mofumofu, but the 99 Fenrir puppies, who rushed at the Cerberus all at once.
“Woof! (We are not dogs! We are proud Fenrir puppies!)”
“Kuuuu woof! (We will protect lady Fioria!)”
“Kaaaa! (In the name of the golden goddess!)”
They brandished their fangs and attacked the Cerberus without mercy.
After right after, retreated.
Due to their small bodies, they were very agile and can easily toy with the huge beast.
“Gah! (Oh yeah I’ve heard of this, the white Fenrir. The Dragon Slayer Wolf)”
“Gi! Gigi! (The King of 4 Legs lives?!)”
“Gebe! (Why is it a pet of a human!?)”
“Wooof! (It’s obvious is it not? She is the one who saved my life. A master I shall serve and protect forever.)”
With a single howl, Mofumofu ordered the Fenrir puppies to retreat.
He left Fioria to the puppies and stood in front of the Cerberus.
“Wooooof! (My name is Mofumofu, the white fang who serves the golden goddess! Cerebus, I shall show you mercy. If you can give me even a scratch of injury, I will let you go)”
“Ga! (We can’t win!)”
“Kuuuun kun kun! (Please forgive us! We got too ahead of ourselves!)”
“Keeen! (We will do anything please just our lives, just spare our lives!)”
It seems that the Cerberus has completely lost the will to fight.
It flopped down and rolled on its back, showing its stomach.
It was a pose of servitude.
“You guys don’t have any pride…”
“Gau gau! (Amazing, he spoke human!)”
“Kun kun! (As expected of Lord Mofumofu!)”
“Ken ken! (So cool! Hug me please!)”
Because their lives were on the line, they desperately flattered Mofumofu.
In response to this Mofumofu only let out a sigh.
“Then tell me everything you know about the witch Beatrice. Depending on what information you tell me I might even have you as a pet.”
Fioria woke up with a sleepy expression.
She was not on her bed.
She was sat on a very soft chair.
She recalled her memories while doing a stretch.
She fell into a deep sleep due to Genesis using too much of her mana.
She doesn’t know what happened after, but it was probably Mofumofu who carried her here right?
“It feels like the audience hall of royals.”
There was a red carpet all the way from here to the door.
The chair was also luxurious with fancy decorations. It was truly fitting to be called a throne.
“Fioria! Here here!”
There was a voice on her right.
One of the important members of the new church, Cardinal Seela Hornet, beckoned.
“I wonder what she wants.” While nodding I stood up.
“Please have a look at everyone.”
Seela opened the door right next to her and pushed Fioria.
Just outside the door was a balcony with a sweeping view.
Fioria’s consciousness finally awoken from its slumber.
She remembered. This is the Bolto city’s new church’s papal government building. But why is she here?
“Your Holiness. Your Holiness has come out!”
“Pope Fioria! Congratulations on your pontiff appointment!”
“That’s the golden goddess huh… Thank god thank god!”
Fioria’s doubts were erased by the voices.
The new Papacy building has an unbelievable number of people gathered.
The terrace facing the front of the building, unable to contain all the people, had people spilled out onto the streets and even on the city walls.
Fioria tilted her head.
The head of the new church. She intended for the position to be given to either Seela or Higel.
Herself being titled “Saint”, would fly around the continent and promote the new church.
It was decided beforehand, so how did it become like this.
“Fioria, you were too spectacular.”
Higel said from Fioria’s back.
A smile that was as bewitching as a devil, it contained a hint of happiness somewhere.
“Once something like that was done, only you could become the pope, right?”
Higel pointed at the sky.
A blue sky that was transparent.
There were hundreds, thousands of angels lined up.
“Your Holiness, apologies for being up here in the sky”
“There were too many people on the ground so we decided to wait up here”
“Congratulations on your appointment to the pontiff. We will dedicate our lives to serving you!”
The angels are full of handsome young men.
Their expressions filled with life, sang Fioria’s praises one after another.
When it got to this point even Fioria was a bit conflicted.
They were probably archangels born from Astroraia.
Her mana should have been used up long ago, why were they still here?
On the contrary, they were even moving with their own will.
This is strange.
The archangels born from “Testament” only have sapience and a life span similar to instant summon.
What if I overdid it again… The witch Beatrice seemed really strong so I went along with it. After I started using my mother’s sword I felt that my mana had been increased.
“Healing the sick, lifting up the Moozel River, and make an army of archangels follow your orders. That kind of person, it would be weird to say she’s just a saint right? The voice of the people as well. If you do not rise to the position of Pope, they might even start rioting.”
As if saying ah well… Higel continued.
“The one who incited the people to be like this was me. While you were sleeping, I did a few things here and there.”
“How long was I asleep for?”
“20 days. It was enough time to convince the cardinals and spreading your deeds. How about it, it is a bit of an unexpected development, isn’t it?”
Higel once said before, I want to make you lose.
“This time it turned into a surprise attack but still it’s my victory.”
“Yeah… I am speechless. I am troubled to the point where it’s hard for me to move.”
“Well then, let me give you one more unexpected present.”
And with that, he started explaining.
At the new church, there is a new position called the Patriarch, who will accept the actual duties of the Pope.
So, Fioria can move around freely, just like before.
And so on that day, the continent of Belgaria had the first female pope in history.
The name was Fioria de Florence.
Her story of the greatest noblewoman ever will be spoken forever until the end of human history.
Demon Lord “I finally caught you! Tch. It’s just like Beatrice to use “Eraser” then just run away.”
Evil God “Stop it! Let me go!”
Demon Lord “Think about it calmly. Do you think you can get away from Fioria?”
Evil God “Uhh”
Demon Lord “Aren’t you a god? Then act like one. I will fight with you.”
Evil God “Demon Lord, you…. Are actually a good guy…”
Demon Lord (If I give this guy up to Fioria, I wonder if I can get her to let me go.”
Evil God (If it comes down to it, I will give Demon Lord up to Fioria and have to let me go.”
