Fioria was visiting the Dukedom of Florence’s castle the night before her disappearance.
After eating dinner with her elderly father, Graham, she drank a bit of wine and returned to her room.
Then, the next day began.
The maid thought it was strange that Fioria hadn’t woken up yet, and when she went to her room to check up on her, Fioria was somehow nowhere to be found, and her window had been left open. There was only a gentle breeze fluttering the lace curtains.
Furthermore, in the early morning, there were strange phenomena being observed throughout the Belgarian continent.
For example, one merchant wrote:
“It happened at dawn. A golden light, trailing like a comet, was blinking on and off, climbing upwards in the Western sky. I didn’t know what it meant, but I suddenly realized that there were tears streaming down my face. I knelt on the ground, and couldn’t help but to offer a prayer.”
This merchant’s account was not the only one. Many people had recorded similarly strange scenes.
Taking all of these accounts into consideration, it can be concluded that the “golden light” appeared in the skies above the Duchy of Florence’s castle, and ascended up to the heavens.
…This is a digression, but two days after Fioria disappeared, her “pet dog” Mofumofu and its family also disappeared, as if they followed her out.
After about 40 days had passed since her disappearance, a strange thing occurred that impacted the entire world.
The sun was setting, and when the sky had taken on a golden hue, an army of angels appeared.
It was just like the scene depicted in the Monado religion’s “Final Judgment”. People all over the world trembled in fear.
However, the world did not end.
Instead, a few countries met their demise.
These were countries that raised banners of revolt upon Fioria’s disappearance and were trying to overturn the dominance of the Tristan Kingdom.
…However, the only ones who were subjected to this judgment were the people in power who had participated in forming the plot to revolt. Not a single civilian in those countries bore any injuries. The people continued to live as people of the Tristan Kingdom and were treated courteously.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Incidentally, among the many magical powers Fioria possessed, there was one with the following name:
It was a power that summoned thousands upon thousands of angels, and they could be used to do one’s bidding.
The angels that appeared in order to suppress this revolt (or rather, a failed attempt at one) were attributed to this “Genesis”. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that that was an obvious conclusion to reach.
“Those angels were undoubtedly employed by Fioria-sama.”
“A revolt would be preposterous. If we make a wrong move, we risk being struck down by her ‘Divine Judgment’.”
“Fioria-sama didn’t disappear. She returned to heaven and now watches over us from the skies.”
Rumors like these travel from person to person, growing larger as they go.
Around the same time, Heinkel Winfield, the New Monado Religion’s second pope ever, made a declaration.
“According to the sacred books, the God of Creation, Mona, and the God of Destruction, Fractal, are siblings, and they have an older sister God in common. This is, indeed, the Golden Goddess, Fioria Di Florence. To revolt against the Tristan Kingdom is a cardinal sin that goes against the will of the Gods.”
Whether these words were true or not was not clear.
However, the people did believe that Fioria was a Goddess reborn.
As a result, the Tristan Kingdom remained intact and entered an impressive three hundred year span of prosperity.
Furthermore, around a year after Fioria’s disappearance, her steward, Lexol Medias vanished and was never heard from again, either.
According to the accounts of people in his vicinity, just before his whereabouts became unknown, he was often seen staring off into the Western sky.
Upon hearing that Lex had evaporated into thin air, the King of the Tristan Kingdom, Vincent, is said to have mumbled, “I’ve been left behind. Ah, well. I’m sure we’ll meet again, one day.”
Shortly thereafter, Vincent gave up his throne to a distant relative, and from that day forth, he quietly lived out the rest of his life as a bachelor.
Ultimately, the true nature of Fioria Di Florence remains a mystery to this day. No clear answer of what exactly she was has ever surfaced.
The dissolution of the former church, and the establishment of a new religion.
The conquest of “the Black Forest” and the subjugation of the Evil God, Fractal.
The realization of a united global kingdom.
These were acts that befit a God and were more mythical than myths themselves.
At some point, the time period during which Fioria was on Earth became known by a certain title.
It was known forever thereafter as:
