Oh no! After I Reincarnated, My Moms Became Son-cons! Book 17 Chapter 8Published at 15th of September 2019 10:34:34 AM Chapter 8
“Not bad . Even I, who is somewhat prejudice toward you, must admit that your plans for this are perfect . I can’t find any faults with you . Proceed with it . If I’m ready, when can we start?”
Mommy Elizabeth solemnly replied, “Though preparations are complete and we can commence any time, the Royal Palace needs to prepare . We need to send out invitations and fortify security . We must get news out so that everyone sees Daisy . Hence, we need a total of roughly three days . We can commence in three days’ time . In three days, I will ensure everyone gives their blessings to Daisy and watches her . ”
“While that’s unsafe, if it’s necessary, I can understand the concern . We should do everything we can to protect my Daisy . We, therefore, should wrap this up as soon as we can . It seems dangerous to have everybody’s eyes on her no matter how I think about it . A long night means more nightmares, after all, and that’s not a good thing . By the way, Mom, do you know about the new church?”
“The new church?”
I nodded: “Yes”Advertis.e.m.e.nt
Mom paused to think for a moment then responded with a smile: “What’s the matter, Son? Did you believe in them? Mommy just gave an order to forbid religious discussions in the palace; hence, if you if you’re religious, you’ll put Mommy in a dilemma . Mommy won’t stop your beliefs, though . Mommy is a little jealous that you’d rather believe in religion than Mommy . ”
“Wh-What…? Your Majesty, d-do you believe in the new church…? Sorry, sorry, sorry, Your Majesty, I am not trying to attack a religion . It is just that they are just traitors who separated from us and refuse to pray . They are nothing more than a group of lazy people who are looking to comfort their souls . If you wish for G.o.d’s support, our G.o.d will definitely open his arms for you . ”
Perhaps hearing the new church mentioned led to the pope thinking that I wanted to join a religion . He must’ve perceived that as me choosing to believe in the new church . He was so tense that he rubbed his robe and stuttered . As a matter of fact, he looked as though he wanted to grab my shirt and desperately explain something .
“No, I don’t want to join a religion . It’s just that my interest is piqued . The last time I came here, there was no such thing as a new church . They must’ve come into existence in the past year? It’s practically impossible for a religion to grow so rapidly within one year that they could even threaten your traditional religion . They relied on some sort of holy water to achieve their growth, correct?”
“Yes . They relied on their so-called holy water, which is a hoax . It is just a trick . It is merely deceitful trickery . It is not a miracle from G.o.d . Only by believing our G.o.d will G.o.d acknowledge you . That is the only option . ”
“Of course . After my time living in the elven lands, I no longer believed in humanity’s G.o.d . Your G.o.d is just something you believe to exist; meanwhile, the elves’ G.o.d does, for a fact, exist . We’re talking about two totally different things . I don’t believe in your religion, be it your church or the new church . G.o.d sure never came to rescue me when I was in danger . My moms were the ones who saved me . Logically, then, my moms are my G.o.ds . ”
Content with what she heard, Mommy Elizabeth stroked my head . However, there was also a hint of displeasure in her eyes: “That was very touching, but, Son, there’s one part you got wrong, and that is that you only have one Mom . She can’t be considered your mom, after all . She’s just a surrogate mother . ”
“Sorry, Mom… but it’s not time to be worried about that . I’m just curious as to what their holy water is . How did they obtain it when they split off from you? If it was your holy water, it must be nothing more than normal water . ”
“No… It is holy water G.o.d has blessed…”
“Whatever the case, not even the water your G.o.d has blessed can heal wounds . That’s why there has to be a problem with their water . It might be elven water for that matter . I’m not sure myself . In any case, I need to look into it . I must . Elven spring water shouldn’t be here in humanity’s hands . Should elven mana start to affect humans, humans may end up mutating . Humans can’t accept magic, but they have courage and intelligence . Humans should focus on being humans instead of letting elves influence them . I must find this so-called holy water before the spring water changes humanity . ”
Mommy Elizabeth shook her head: “Wait a second . Son, have you confirmed it to be the spring water? It’s the elven spring water? The elven spring should be heavily guarded, though . I knew Inard, yet not even I was allowed to go near it . How could a human have stolen from the spring? Plus, besides me, there’s no way the elves’ mana could be effective for any other human unless they’re citizens of Troy City . The only human population elven mana would work on is Troy City’s citizens would be, relatively speaking that is . ”
“I can tell you with absolute certainty that it isn’t,“ the woman in my head suddenly informed . “I can guarantee that n.o.body could approach the elven spring, and no human has ever taken water from it, so you can rest a.s.sured there . I don’t know what humanity’s water is, but I can guarantee it isn’t the elven spring water . ”
As she once lived in the elven spring, I trusted what she said . The question was, therefore, what was the water if not the elven spring water?
Mom stroked my head: “Son, if you’re worried, I can have the new church bring their holy water to me . As for whether or not it’s the elven spring water, I can tell with a glance . I’ve never been concerned about these things . I didn’t know about the holy water . Since you’ve mentioned it, I think there’s an issue . I will investigate this, too . Son, I’ll have the new church bring their holy water to us tonight . I, too, am very curious as to where they acquired this so-called holy water . ”
Suddenly, the pope carefully looked at us and, in a soft voice, asked, “Do you trust us, Your Majesty?”
I shook my head: “No, I only trust my eyes . ”
And, with that, I left the chapel .
