Chapter 78 Accompany

Wendy opened her eyes and discovered an unknown ceiling above her. The ceiling was made of gray brick, and had cobwebs hanging from wooden beams along with an  unlit chandelier. Slowly, the scene turned from fuzzy to clear until she could see every detail.

It isn’t a cold stone roof or a narrow tent, she thought, right, half a month ago we were forced to leave the Witch Cooperation Association. Who knows, perhaps under Cara’s leadership they have already found the Holy Mountain?

She took a deep breath. Though it wasn’t as clean and fresh as the air within a cave, the warm air and the cozy atmosphere made her very comfortable. Her body was wrapped in a soft and velvety silk and laid on a mattress out of several layers of soft cotton blankets, so when she laid down, she slightly sank into it. Even if she stretched her whole body, her toes wouldn’t be exposed.

She felt a little guilty that she wanted to do nothing other than stay in bed. Even so, she had stayed here for only half a month but here her heart was at peace, something she hadn’t felt in a long time.

Within the castle, no matter how late it was, no one would ever disturb her. For example, right now. Wendy turned her head and gazed out of the window, seeing that the sky was still gray, even somewhat dazzling. It was probably 10 a.m. Within her last years of wandering, she had never been able to sleep so peacefully. She would be woken by any small noise. She even had to prepare the food for rest of the day before daybreak out of fear. The whole time they had to live in fear that the church might discover their current whereabouts. Also, no one could guarantee that they would outlive their next Demon’s Bite.

Even during their time walking through the Impassable Mountain Range, she was always busy with doing chores. She would help with drying foods or herbs, with drying her cooperation sisters’ laundry, or cleaning the camp and so on …

Even so, Wendy didn’t mind doing it. Every time when she saw her sisters smiles, she felt very happy. But now, living such a lazy life, she discovered that she herself couldn’t resist enjoying such a life.

   No, I can’t be this lazy any longer. She patted her cheeks to motivate herself to crawl out of bed. After all, when she had lived in the church’s convent, the nuns would often warn that lazy people wouldn’t receive the blessing and protection of God.

In a little while, I will go to the garden and practice my wind control. By the way, every time she remembered that the Prince required her to train her magic, she couldn’t keep herself from laughing. Such strange and eccentric requirements –  for example, after he saw her ability, he had told her that he hoped she would be able to blow the wind over a distance of more than ten meters. However, there had never existed a magic power that was effective at such a distance. When she told him that she wasn’t be able to do it, he didn’t get angry. Rather, he came up with a strange idea: she should stand on top of a stool, and use her power to rise up and down. When Wendy tried it, she discovered that it was actually feasible. Seeing the test results, His Royal Highness was very satisfied, so besides asking her to train more, he also asked her if she was afraid of heights.

   It was exactly like Nightingale had said, Roland Wimbledon is an elusive person, but he is also a prince who deeply cared for us witches. Thinking up to this point, Wendy gently sighed. There really is a Prince who doesn’t hate witches! Respected Mentor, you were wrong!

When she put on her clothes, she felt that they were a little small around her chest area – even so, Wendy had already become accustomed to this kind of strange clothing, she just wanted to find a needle to change its size, but before she could, someone knocked on her door.

“Come in.” said Wendy.

It turned out that it was Nightingale who opened the door and came in, leaving Wendy a little startled, but Wendy smiled and said, “Is His Highness still in bed? If not, you shouldn’t have the free time to visit me.”

 “What are you talking about? Ah, I’m not by his side all day long.” Nightingale said, embarrassed, as she raised her basket, “I brought you breakfast.”

Usually, the maids were the ones responsible for delivering breakfast. In addition, after bedtime, Nightingale would often accompany the Prince to chat, so it was quite hard to see her at all. Wendy smiled from the bottom of her heart, I just woke up, but she was already here to deliver food, she certainly had slipped in several times.

   “Now tell, what’s the matter?” asked Wendy while she took a cheese sandwich from inside the basket and put it into her mouth.

   “Well …” Nightingale came over and set herself on the bed, “Today Nana will go through… that day.”

   Wendy was speechless, since it was Nana’s first time going through the Demon’s Bite, it wouldn’t be as violent and long as on the day of her adulthood, but still, it couldn’t be guaranteed that she would be safe. The younger they were, the less pain they would be able to endure. Wendy placed the basket on the nightstand and went to Nightingale’s side, patting her shoulder to comfort her and told her, “Didn’t His Highness say that as long as we release our magic every day, we will be able to minimize our suffering?”

   “But that is just a speculation.” Nightingale contradicted.

“At least it sounds very reasonable,” answered Wendy, “Didn’t Anna safely pass through it? Even so, it was the most difficult of Demon’s Bite, it was the day of her adulthood, yet she suffered no harm. This was exactly what you’ve seen with your own eyes.” she paused for a moment, then asked, “Where is Nana?”

   “At the moment she is in the Medical Center,” When it came to this, Nightingales mouth nearly sprang open, “I heard that her father, Sir Pyne had bought a huge amount of hares from hunters, which have been sent to the Medical Center so she can keep practicing until tomorrow.”

“She has such a nice father,” Wendy exclaimed a little enviously, “I can’t remember the time when I was a kid … that is a very strange thing, it’s just as if my memories are a blank sheet. There is no father, no mother, the first thing I can remember, is my staying within the convent.”

“It seems that I’m a little more fortunate than you.” Nightingale teasingly exclaimed.

“Well, you were really lucky.” Wendy sat herself beside Nightingale and took her into her arms, asking her, “Are you nervous?”

“…” For a moment, Nightingale kept silent, but then she gently nodded.

   Wendy certainly knew why the other was so tense. Today wasn’t only a crucial day for Nana, no, it was also the day in which could become the turning point in all of the witch’s history. If Nana was able to survive this bite, it would mean that witches could thoroughly get rid of the shadow of being the devil’s servants, turning Border Town into the long sought for “Holy Mountain” – maybe one day, all witches will gather here. They will be able to live a normal life no difference with ordinary people, no longer having a need to wander around and try to avoid the Church’s witch hunt.

   “There is no use in worrying about it, we just to have to laze around the whole day and accompany Nana.”

   “Laze … around?” Nightingale stared at Wendy in disbelief.

   “Yes well, who told you to tell me the news so early? It makes me nervous too,” Wendy simply said, “Since I’m no longer in the mood to practice, we could also use this time to visit Nana. Wasn’t something like this written in the contract? It is called paid leave.”


   After eating dinner, Nana’s room was full of people – Anna, Lightning, Nightingale, Wendy, naturally also Nana’s father, and Roland. Having to face the battle soon, Nana’s face was full of insecurity, “Well … will I have to die?”

“Of course not!” They all shook their heads.

   “It’s your first time, so the demon bite won’t be as strong,” Wendy took her hand and spoke encouragingly, “Just put all of your spirit on the thought of holding on.”

   “It hurts, you’re breaking my fingers!” Sir Pyne held his daughter’s hand, “You have become very strong during your time within the Medical Center, I, your father, am very proud of you.” The little girl nodded, letting her gaze wander over the crowd before finally focusing on Anna, who stepped forward and kissed her on the forehead, “You will survive, right?”

    So adorable this chapter. There’s always a big picture to worry about, but these small scenes are like tiny worlds of heartwarming.

  • Diarek

    If you think about it, Roland was very lucky to get Anna and Nana, both of their abilities are very high rank. Look at the Association, their closest equivalent only able to heat up objects and make herbal medicines. Especially Nana, the whole Border Town will die for her with such cheating ability.

      Now we need to hear “You are courting death!” to feel the full xianxia.

    Obligatory slice of life plot with uncertain element. It is perfect after tragic battle last chapter.

  • Oak

    Thanks for the chapter,
    It would be so GoT if she ended up dying

  • MangoGuy

    No deathflag spotted so far…..

  • Danis

    Thanks For The Chapter 😀

  • akosimacmic

    The translation was slow I like the story it is refreshing.

    • Gege

      They are not slow. I really appreciate that we can read 4x in a week. Others usually just 1-2 times a week. Its already twice amount of the others. But I guess maybe thats because each chapter is not as long as other story?
      Well, I’m still grateful though. 😉

      • Senior Brother

        Slow or not, it depending on which novel he compare it to.
        Sure as hell it’s slow if you often read novels that release 3/day or 4/day

      • Senior Brother

        Slow or not, it depending on which novel he compare it to.
        Sure as hell it’s slow if you often read novels that release 3/day or 4/day.

    • Roxerer

      This was already the sixth chapter of this week and later today I will publish the seventh. Is that really too slow?

      • Ragef33

        Machine translations with little effort have spoiled these people. Continue on as always!

      • Neiden

        It is not slow, but the quality of the story makes us hungry for more :p

  • MangoGuy

    wait…wendy already woke up and signed a contract, right?

    • Wrandral

      I suppose she still has problem accepting that she left and almost died because she opposed Cara. You know you think a tragic event that happened is a dream when you wake up and then you notice it was real…

      • MangoGuy

        the trauma…..

        • Wrandral

          i wager getting poisoned to death (as far as she knows) by her friend and partner Cara hit her pretty hard in the feels.

  • Solid Snake

    finally we are back at roland

  • watchin

    These chapters can never come faster enough I tell ya

    • Om nerabdator

      i know your pain, the story hasnt even started yet i feel like we are still in the prologue section, will have to wait till winter is over to get into it

      • Wrandral

        Unless Roland get bumrushed by those devils i don’t think we will see more action any sooner apart from teching up. A long prologue till Roland gets to unleash his power on his foes hehehe and then a lot of chapters of consolidating what he captured … rinse and repeat ^^

        • Neruz

          Yeah none of the other factions are even aware of what he’s doing, even the nearby stronghold is almost completely blind. At the very least I don’t expect any of the royal factions to notice a thing until after he’s conquered the stronghold.

          • Wrandral

            And why would they? Before the possession/reincarnation Roland was a textbook weak prince that spent his days going after maids and wasting money with nothing good about him from what i gathered. Why would they be wary of him especially given where he is and considering they each have bigger enemies to worry about.

            • Neruz

              Exactly, not only is no-one paying attention to him, no-one has any reason to pay attention to him. It will be ages before stories of the crazy shit he’s up to work their way across the kingdom, and even longer before they’re taken seriously.

      • Arashi Darkness

        well,it like the fight will start at Volume 2 and it more like 30 more chapter from now on to show that sceen,so it will take a while here <(")
