Chapter 401 – Land Where Spirits Live (2)
Before they knew it, another week or so passed.
The World Tree wasn’t far from the human world.
It wasn’t held in a secret place like the other three races who were close to the Bans or some dangerous places.
The World Tree was huge enough to reach out to the sky so it would be strange if the people who passed by couldn’t see it.
There was also the village where people lived around the forest where the World Tree was located.
Perhaps because of this, humans have wanted to covet the World Tree since ancient times, and wars were waged hundreds of years ago.
However, they were thwarted by the power of the High Elves.
It was from that point on that the High Elves were considered one of the top three races.
However, the obsession that the humans had with the World Tree continued, and in the end, they succeeded in making an artificial one but it was still nothing compared to the real one.
‘The candy made from the sap of the World Tree is delicious.’
Sarah recalled the taste of the candy made from the World Tree’s sap that she had eaten before.
When she was younger, Marquis Bell, her maternal grandfather, gave it to her as a gift.
She couldn’t specifically remember the taste, but what she knew was that the candy was sweeter than anything she ate.
In addition, she whined to her parents about how she wanted to eat it again but couldn’t remember when it exactly happened.
But because it was a special memory, it just came into her mind right now.
“It is so boring that it is the same scenery.”
Ash mumbled as she leaned her forehead against the window and looked out.
As she said, the scenery outside was the same repetitive grasslands as yesterday.
The forest of the World Tree was a lot bigger than they had imagined.
Since the World Tree, which was said to be the source of everything, took root in this land, enormous mountains and forests were created around it.
Originally, there wasn’t even a road to walk on or for a carriage to run on, but the High Elves made it to welcome the guests.
“I heard that there are great magicians amongst the High Elves, so why won’t they just come and teleport us?”
“There must be a reason.”
“Teleporting is much easier than making a road.
How the hell did they manage to make such a huge road?”
Magic was such a strange thing.
The road they were on right now must have been made with magic.
Maybe that was why the grassy forest close to the road was a bit distorted, and as Ash said, teleporting would be a lot easier.
‘Even though I don’t know magic…’
Her brother was praised as the best magician of all time, but unfortunately, his younger sibling didn’t have any talent in magic.
No, even in the entire Welton family, there was no one who had the same talent for magic as Jamie did.
“We are almost there.”
Rebecca took a peek outside.
“Did the spirit tell you?”
At Rebecca’s answer, Sarah looked at her a little shocked.
In the past, she only knew Rebecca as a gentle soul, and she didn’t even know about the spirits.
That was one thing, but Sarah was too young to even know what the word ‘Elementalist’ meant, and she was just a kid who liked to play with the two of them.
But now she knew what they were, and to some extent, she could guess that Rebecca was strong.
So it felt strange.
“I heard it is difficult to talk with a spirit even if you are an Elementalist.”
That is why Sister is special.”
The answer came from Ash.
She was someone who was overshadowed by her older sister, but she was also a well-known Elementalist.
“The Elemental Spirit can usually do Spirit Communication, so the Elementalists can talk with the spirit they are in contact with.
But they don’t depend on one another, they just convey each other’s thoughts.
So it is much easier to understand what the other wants, but it’s very difficult to convey the actual meaning of their message.
However, my sister can communicate through voice rather than the usual transmission of thoughts, so she is amazing.” 1
“You shouldn’t paint someone too much, Ash.”
“But it wasn’t wrong.”
Rebecca tried to punish Ash for showing her off, but Ash didn’t care, making her sigh and talk to Sarah looking a bit embarrassed,
“Not all spirits can do that.
Only the Water Spirits can use voice.”
“That alone is huge.
It isn’t a normal spirit, but with the Water Spirits that have high ranks.”
Sarah, who was not an Elementalist, couldn’t tell what was great, but when she heard it from Ash, she felt it was a tremendous skill.
Anyway, as if proving that Rebecca was right, the scenery outside, which had been the same for days, began to change a little.
“We will arrive soon.”
The window opened, and Mero, who was running next to them, informed them.
“But aren’t you moving too comfortably?”
“If you are jealous, ask permission from Mr.
When Sarah boldly responded, Mero clicked his tongue and closed the window.
“I can see it.”
At Rebeca’s words, Sarah and Ash poked their heads out of the carriage window.
And they were shocked by what they saw.
“That is a tree?”
The two of them couldn’t shut their mouths as they watched the huge tree open up before them, which was like an endless wall.
It was so huge that they wondered how one could even think of it as a tree.
If they didn’t know they were visiting a tree, they would have thought it was a tower made of magic.
In particular, its thick branches and leaves, which covered the sky, wouldn’t have allowed a single light on this land if it weren’t for the spheres of light that shone on the place.
“The air is different.”
“It’s like a whole different world.
How did such a huge tree manage to hide this long?”
In the past, the World Tree was exposed to the outside world, but now it is said that the High Elves have hidden it.
No one could see the World Tree without the permission of the High Elves.
As they continued to admire it, they arrived at the village built in front of the World Tree.
And at the entrance of the village, there were several people in white robes.
All of them had deep hoods on their heads, and only their mouths and chins were visible.
When the carriage came to a stop, the Ran warriors were prepared to escort them to make sure nothing bad happened.
When Sarah was about to get out, Mero slowly mumbled,
“You stay there.”
“Is everything fine?”
“It is an order.
It looks like they want to check the situation first.”
As he said, Hasyath moved ahead wearing white clothes, alone.
The representatives from both sides stepped forward, exchanged a few words, and then gestured to the carriage.
“They are telling us to leave the carriage behind.”
Mero interpreted the hand signal and informed the girls.
“Let’s get off.”
He opened the door.
Sarah got down first, followed by Ash and Rebecca.
In this mission, Sarah was assigned as the escort for the sisters.
Normally, they would have wanted to be escorted by high-ranking spirits, but the reason Sarah was assigned to them was because she specialized in survival combat and she could help the sisters if something happened.
For that reason, Hasyath let Sarah stay with them.
The three of them walked to Hasyath.
-These are spirits of amazing levels.
Endairon told Rebecca.
-More than two of them signed with the Spirit Kings.
And the rest are all contractors of high-level spirits.
It meant that all the High Elves and Rebecca also felt the amazing nature affinity that each of them had.
The High Elves were also conscious of Rebecca, and they couldn’t even bother hiding their gaze despite the hoods on their faces.
I will take the lead.”
“Will that be fine?”
“We came as guests.
We don’t have to be this alert.”
That was true, but if the Ran warriors were asked to be escorts, then there had to be a reason.
Sarah felt a little uneasy, but Rebecca spoke with conviction, forcing her to back away.
Rebecca stepped beside Hasyath.
Sarah and Ash stood next to her like guards, and a moment of silence passed.
One of the High Elves laughed.
It was the tallest person standing in front of the relatively small ones, but it was surely a woman’s laughter.
She pulled her hood down, and Sarah, who was up close, almost went stiff at the sight of her.
‘H-How can a person be this beautiful?’
Starting with her pale and clear skin, her features were all in perfect harmony, like she was sculpted by God.
Her purple hair blended in with her subtle look and the mysterious atmosphere she had, and Sarah was sure that she had never met such a beautiful person in her life.
Even when she had seen some elves before, she had always thought they were very beautiful, but the High Elves were on a whole different level.
As for the Ran warriors, they were all men, and each of them but Hasyath could not take their eyes off her.
Hasyath sneered at the men who lacked training.
“Don’t be like that.
It cannot be helped.”
Hiyan, the High Elf, said that as if it were expected.
“That personality is still the same.”
“How long has it been? Wouldn’t it be more of a problem if my personality had changed overnight?”
“I am not discussing trivial matters with you.
Talk to the child.”
“The conversation is over.”
When Hasyath frowned, Rebecca said,
It is over.”
“In the way of the spirits.”
And the two people looked at each other.
They didn’t just look at each other.
They were talking.
“Uh…? So, is the talk over? Then what do we do now?”
At that time, Sarah asked because she wasn’t sure what to do, and Hiyan looked at her.
She narrowed her eyes and asked Hasyath,
“Is this child…”
She was so focused on Rebecca that she didn’t notice the human child behind her.
But there was another guest—an important guest.
And Hasyath nodded.
“Then why is she here?”
Hiyan looked at Sarah as if she couldn’t understand.
Sarah wondered if she had done something wrong by coming here.
“D-Did I do something wrong coming here…”
Only then did Hiyan realize she couldn’t control her expression and she said to Sara,
Welcome to the World Tree Village.”
Sarah was shocked at how fast her words changed, but she couldn’t just ignore her, so she bowed her head.
Hiyan smiled and told everyone.
“Everyone, go inside.
We have prepared a place for the guests who have come a long way.”
Getting rid of their exhaustion was important.
They had to take a break and listen to what they had to do here.
Hasyath led his men and entered the village.
Sarah felt a bit odd, but Ash told her not to worry, and they went inside.
And looking back, Sarah walked inside.
“What is this… why was that child brought here?”
She tried not to show it, but she couldn’t hide her shock, and then she bit her lip.
“Coincidence and destiny.
It’s either one or maybe both.”
The girl who made a contract with the Water Spirit King and the girl with the same blood as the Demon King gathered in one place.
The High Elves considered this fate.
The fate that they foretold had begun to change.
TL/N: The more skilled the caster is, the stronger the spirit can represent itself. ↩️
