A young girl in a village without protection - Chapter 12
Translator: Darling | Editor: Coming soon…
“It’ll be fine if it’s you Lady Sele.”
“Thank you, Hisui. Let’s aim for germination first.”
After leaving Anton’s house Selesina went towards the center of the village, although, Anton’s house was more or less at the center.
Anton gathered all the other villagers informing them that something was about to begin. Selesina who didn’t want to show a pitiful appearance readied her fighting spirit.
‘Where should I plant the seed?’
It didn’t have to be the absolute center. In fact, anywhere close to the center was fine as long as there was sufficient place for the tree to grow.
A little away from Anton’s home was a large clearing. She decided to plant the seed there.
“Is it alright if I plant it here?”
“Of course. As you please Lady Selesina.”
After confirming with Anton, Selesina turned to face Hisui.
“Let’s plant it here Hisui. Can you please bring me the seed?”
While Hisui was bringing the seed, Toi went up to the designated location for the tree and started to rub his nose on the ground.
Selesina was surprised as she wondered what Toi was planning when he started to use his paws to dig the soil. He seemed to understand that they were planning to plant the seed there and began to soften the soil around it.
After Toi had finished plowing the earth, Selesina stroked and complimented him, touched by the fact that he helped her.
“Thank you, Toi! With this, we’ll surely be able to sprout it soon.”
Toi looked proud as if he seemed to understand that he was being praised.
Selesina bought out the seed from the small box that Hisui handed over to her.
Will it grow well by just touching it?………she was anxious and her heart was racing. Hisui, Anton, and the other villagers were watching over her from behind.
“Then let’s plant the seed.”
Selesina took and a deep breath and spoke and then lightly dug the soil and planted the seed.
‘The great tree grows under the influence of its owner.’
Right now, Selesina was acting as the landlord for this place so that would make her the owner. The blessings of the owner were necessary for the tree to grow. The stronger the blessings, the bigger the tree would grow and bestow more blessings.
They say when you have the blessings from the Gods, your tree would be full bloom every year and bring a good harvest.
‘….It will be fine. It will certainly grow well.’
Selesina thought as she covered the seed with soil. Now the only thing left to do was water it every day and pray for it to grow well.
“Lady Sele, here.”
“You’ve prepared the water. Thank you Hisui.”
Selesina took the watering can from Hisui and poured some water over the soil.
Immediately, the ground seemed to shake a little.
Hisui seemed to notice it as well. He came beside her as they watched the soil closely.
Shocked, Selesina was about to fall back but Hisui stopped her.
That’s right, it was as Hisui said. There was a sprout.
There were to yellow-green leaves, and the height was only a few centimeters. Even if it was a great tree, for it to sprout to fast………everyone was buzzing.
“Does the great tree grow by going against the laws of nature…….?”
“Amazing, to think that I would be able to see it with my own eyes.”
“Will the village prosper?”
“Will vegetation grow on the fields……?”
Selesina could hear everyone speaking.
But she was still the one that was most surprised and she clearly couldn’t hide her shock.
‘No way, no way, no way, it has already sprouted !? Even though it should have taken a few days at the least……..!”
Was it because it was the great tree or was it because this was the world from a game? Selesina couldn’t understand. But the growth if the tree depends on its owner.
Inclining her head, Selesina got up and looked at the villagers. Their eyes seemed to be shining with expectation.
Selesina scolded herself of shaking due to tremendous pressure.
“…….I’m Selesina Rinklat. I’ll be acting in as the landlord of this land from today. As you have seen, I have just planted the seed to the great tree. Let us all grow together with this great tree.”
Hearing Selesina’s words, they replied at once in a strong voice.
This is for real now.
Selesina needed to let Anton know that she would need a workplace in this village. A simple place would be fine so she would like him to prepare one.
She didn’t have here place right now so she decided to go back to the carriage.
It would be fine to ask the people of the village to make it for her once she handed over the material cost and wages.
“Hisui, can you speak to Anton for making a base for me? I would like for it to be within this budget………”
Hisui took the bag and frowned once he peered inside.
“I think this is too much.”
Hisui told her that it would be cheaper to have the villagers make it instead of a specialized carpenter.
Selesina didn’t know the market price so she looked at Hisui and spoke without taking the money back.
“I also need some furniture so I’ll hand that money over to you. If you feel that something needs to be purchased then please purchase it.”
“Of course. You’re my butler after all.”
Hisui looked very happy when I told him that I trusted him. He immediately replied, “Leave it to me!”.
“I’ll speak to Mr. Anton and come. Toi, stay by Lady Sele and protect her.”
“He’s a reliable escort.”
After seeing Hisui off, Toi and Selesina went into the carriage. What she was about to do was a secret from Hisui as well.
In fact, that was the reason why she sent him to Anton’s place.
“She closed the carriage door and took in a deep breath.
“………..Adgarl System [Start Up]”
Selesina called out with a strong voice and as she opened her eyes, she saw a hologram plate appear.
There was information about her, the land, and the great tree on it.
The players can use this system – the Asgarl system.
It helps the owner see their condition or the condition of their land.
Tree owned: Level 1
Guardian Beast: Toi
Territory owned: District 7 of the Asgarl kingdom.
Great tree skill:
Fertility protection Level 1: Vegetation will grow will in the area surrounding the tree.
“Ah, thank God……….I can access it. The basic info is the same as I’ve confirmed………Toi is my guardian beast !?”
Isn’t this an amazing, invincible…..? She thought.
She thought that he was only Hisui’s friend but he was actually her ally as well.
“Ah, Toi, I’m so happy !”
Since there was no one around, she didn’t need to speak gracefully. She started to pet Toi. The feeling of the soft for felt great and she wanted to keep hugging him.
She stroked him till she was satisfied.
“That’s right! The Asgarl system!”
She looked at the screen and nodded.
She didn’t need to rush to increase the level of the great tree but she needed to acquire more skills.
“The skills are acquired as the level of the great tree increases, you can also gain more skills by completing quests………..they can also be gained during romantic events…….”
She gave up on acquiring skills through romantic events.
Because she was a villainess that couldn’t be loved by anyone so she couldn’t acquire those skills.
“For now I have to remember that the skill gained at Level 1 is fertility……..the quality surely improves further when the great tree grows to 15 meters.”
First, we need to make fields here.
“There is a skill that helps vegetation grow so let’s aim for that first. But the villagers are 15………15?”
‘According to Anton, there should be 14……..Ah, Hisui!’
Since he is her butler, he would be included in the number of people in this village. That’s why there are 15 people.
There are skills that can be gained depending on the number of people in your land. We need to continue to develop this village.
“Fufu, I have almost memorized all the conditions required to gain skills……..won’t I be invincible with the Asgarl System?”
With this, she needn’t be afraid of her engagement being broken.
She though brimming with joy.
