Selesina returned back to her room carefully, ensuring that no one would notice her. She entered her room and crouched down with her back to the door.
‘What was that, what was that, what was that!!?’
She only planned to check the demon king out for a bit and return quickly but she never imagined that she would ever meet a person like Hel.
“That setting wasn’t a part of the game………..”
After sealing the existence that kills the great tree, peace would return to the world. That’s why she had assumed that the opponent was something like a monster or something like that.
“Was the last boss of the game actually Hel whose ego had collapsed?”
If that was the case, she wanted to do something to save him.
However, Selesina had no power right now. She did have her status as the Marquis’s daughter but that was of no help.
She had to come up with some measure before the heroine sealed him in with the help of Soratek.
“Ahh, there are too many things to do…….”
The Hel right now seemed fine so she would focus on the things that needed her immediate attention. Right now the most important thing was the talk about her blessings in the afternoon.
“But let’s sleep for a little bit before that………..”
She fluttered to the bed and fell into it.
“I’m really sorry Prince Soratek.”
“No, don’t mind it. She’s probably tired from the unusual trip. Let her rest well.”
Through her vague consciousness, Selesina heard a voice and she opened her eyes. After blinking a few times Odette’s gentle voice greeted her a good morning.
She expected to wake up at her usual time but she had unexpectedly fallen into a deep slumber.
“Good morning Odette.”
‘I heard Lord Soratek’s voice too………..?’
When she opened the door to check, there was no one outside right now. He was probably being considerate since Selesina was sleeping.
He must have come to invite her for breakfast. Selesina had done something wrong.
“Prince Soratek had come a little while back. When I told him that you were still sleeping he asked me to let you rest……………. He’s really kind isn’t he.”
“Thank you for the response, Odette. I did something wrong to Lord Soratek…………..”
Selesina who had lost her sleep, sighed, and got up from the bed.
“Did you wake up before this?”
This was what she had accidentally forgotten.
Selesina had changed into her rose-red dress while going out and she fell asleep without changing back.
She had properly changed into her negligee last night and Odette who had helped her dress into it obviously remembered it. She was most likely curious as to what had happened.
There was no way that she could honestly tell Odette that she had sneaked into the basement of the great shrine in the middle of the night.
However, if she were to give a complete lie…………….it would probably turn into a mess later.
“Actually, my eyes opened early in the morning. That’s why I went to the open prayer hall to pray. Today is the day we find out more about my blessings right? I just wanted to calm down somehow………..”
“So that’s what it was. Lady Selesina is so enthusiastic that we the villagers are very happy.”
“After you’re done washing I’ll do your hair.”
She had somehow managed to mislead Odette about the reason for her wearing the dress. Selesina began to prepare.
After having a light breakfast Selesina took Hisui to the shrine store with her. It wasn’t in a special location or anything.
You just had to go to the reception and call out to the priest and ask him to show you the merchandise.
“Good day. We would like to shop……….”
The priest handed over the merchandise list to Selesina. He would bring out the items after she had selected them from the list.
“So you can shop at the shrine.”
“It’s not very well known.”
She was looking over the list with Hisui, the list of the merchandise was smaller than she had expected.
Blessed water: Keeps demons away
The shrine story: Book. It depicts the information regarding the shrine and the blessings
The priest’s bell: Used during prayer
The shrine maiden’s bell: Used during prayer
Preserved food: Delicious dried food-meat
Selesina was thinking about buying the shrine story………..and keeping it at Anton’s home in the village. The bell was just an ornament of decoration without any special use so it wasn’t really necessary.
Selesina decided to purchase the blessed water and the book.
“Please give me 1 shrine storybook and 3 bottles of the blessed water.”
“Thank you. The blessed water is 10,000 Luz per bottle and the book is 3000 Luz. The total will be 13000 Luz.”
As expected of the great shrine. It was certainly expensive.
However, only the priests and the shrine maidens could make the blessed water so it was obvious that it would be expensive. It was mostly used during trips and staying at inns.
‘It’s fine right now because we have Lord Soratek’s escort knights but it would be better to have it just in case.’
“Hisui please make the payment.”
She left the payment to Hisui and took the goods.
She was interested in the book.
When she glanced through it she found that it contained the fact that the spirits and the Gods created this world and what kind of powers the blessings hold.
Regretfully, it didn’t mention anything about that blessing that Selesina had.
‘Well, if it was written in this book then I wouldn’t have a hard time.’
Selesina returned back to her room with Hisui and decided to prepare for the discussions with the temple.
