Chapter 60:

Vol. 4 Epilogue: The Light Shines Down

Hour Empty Child


Different from the dreary atmosphere of Vipory, far away from even Peranim itself was a large grassfield, the winds caressing the grass as it waved like the ocean.Bookmark here

However, the sounds currently filling the air betrayed the serene scenery, as roars that pangs on the ears constantly bellowed.Bookmark here

Stepping onto the grassland, the winds blew up to reveal a robust woman with a solemn expression. Seeing in front of her was the reason for all the roars.Bookmark here

A large ship, suited for air-traveling, lie in wait for her to enter. Two large wings in parallelogram shapes on each side, with a rounded tip at the front, the large ship was capable of powerful flight.Bookmark here

For this woman, this craft is her greatest joy when it comes to traveling long distances.Bookmark here

A smile rose from her soft lips, because along with that beautiful craft was a beautiful girl wearing a black and white uniform by the stairs to the entry door on the ship.Bookmark here

It would have been a beautiful sight… if it weren’t for the pesky men following behind her.Bookmark here

“Hold on! Stop right there!!”Bookmark here

A quick sigh escaped her lips as the woman’s head drooped before she turned around. She saw three older men, wearing long, black robes and a sweat running down their wrinkly gray skin. The one in the center, a man with beady eyes and a look of anger rising from his face shows that he was the most furious.Bookmark here

“You can’t just go wherever you want! As Triun’s Guild Master, you have responsibilities for—”Bookmark here

“—I’m afraid I’m gonna have to miss our meeting for now.”Bookmark here

The woman couldn’t intercept the man fast enough, forcing him to stifle his mouth from the pressure she was giving off.Bookmark here

“You see, hearing old dogs barking hurts my ears.”Bookmark here

Her venomous words were delivered right to the old men, making them flinch as their gray faces were tinted in anger, baring their teeth.Bookmark here

“Y-You…”Bookmark here

The man in the center was definitely not pleased.Bookmark here

Without even looking at their reactions, the woman moved forward, wanting to take a look at the maid to forget such disgusting looking men to ease her mind.Bookmark here

“Master, the Avian is ready to depart.”Bookmark here

“That’s great~ Let’s set off immediately.”Bookmark here

The young maid bowed in respect to her master as she stepped up the stairs and entered into the arch-like doorway.Bookmark here

The inside of the large aircraft was more spacious than its smaller design outside. Along with the wide space, it was made to have an expensive inn’s interior design as well.Bookmark here

Seats were soft as silk to sit, including a big chair fit for a king. Small circle-shaped windows on the walls, showing the outside world. The walls were colored deep blue, and the rug under her feet was soft even for her hardened boots.Bookmark here

As she stepped inside, the cool air of the automatic ventilation system through the vents wiping the fatigue away from her body, she slumped down on her big favorite chair, the most comfortable chair known to mankind, feeling its soft, silky cover on her weary white skin.Bookmark here

“Hah, this would have been another relaxing ride if it weren’t for the situation arising in that place. Peranim, huh…?”Bookmark here

The woman, who raised her curvy leg on top of the other one, rested her chin on her hand as the master’s mind processed the call she received from her subordinate.Bookmark here

The situation was grave, and she made it her duty to see the aftermath herself.Bookmark here

“…I’ve never been there before, so maybe…”Bookmark here

Yet, despite the crisis, a small hope was born deep within her chest. A child from long ago filled her thoughts.Bookmark here

But as if to get rid of it, she shook her head slightly, tied tails of her azure hair swung side to side.Bookmark here

“That’s impossible. Out of all the places, why there…?”Bookmark here

She looked up at the window, the sun’s rays shining through the glass onto her jade-colored eyes that dazzled like jewels from the light.Bookmark here

“Hah… I’ll get into a slump again if I think about this. I gotta focus.”Bookmark here

She pushed herself to keep such thoughts out of her head.Bookmark here

Before long, the aircraft started rumbling. The shakes signifying that it was time.Bookmark here

“Set course for Peranim. Make it fast.”Bookmark here

“Yes, ma’am!”Bookmark here

After yelling out, the voice of the same maid from before responded back, and soon enough, the large aircraft began to lift itself off into the sky.Bookmark here

As the shaking became stronger, the large aircraft, called the Avian, finally flew off from the ground and into the vast sky, the clouds whipping past the window faster than the eye could process.Bookmark here

“Either way,” The master steeled her gaze. “I have no time to waste.”Bookmark here

Her course is to Peranim, and into the city where the accident occurred, and the destiny which she has long since lost would be revealed.Bookmark here

*Author’s Note:
Man, this novel was a doozy to write. This arc was something that I’ve been imagining for months on end. I wanted to make it special too, since it was the first time that I make it like a light novel with only 5 REALLY long chapters. Of course, the adventure doesn’t stop here. Bookmark here

I’m already currently working on the makings on Vol 5, where Kudo has an unexpected encounter, and was taken to a place unlike any location he’s been before! There’s going to be more info on the advanced world of adventuring, and of course, there’s going to be a lot of encounters with many new companions that will join the party!Bookmark here

I want to thank Jio Kurenai from Honeyfeed who helped a lot by proofreading the novel without me even asking, and giving me his thoughts on the novel. I also want to thank the voters and the followers from Wattpad who enjoyed the story and given it a vote of approval. Here’s the list (I apologize if I miss anyone):Bookmark here

These are just a few of those who voted and followed my page and given their support to the story. Again, I want to thank everyone who read and gave their approval. I hope that by the next volume, I will improve my writing to make it a fun experience for all, and that everyone will give me their support once again so that I can improve even further!
Vol. 5 will probably be ready around the start of August 2017, so until then, see you all next time! Bookmark here
