Oh no! After I Reincarnated, My Moms Became Son-cons! Book 17 Chapter 9Published at 15th of September 2019 10:34:34 AM Chapter 9
Castell came over when we were having wine after dinner . He reported, “Your Majesties, the group along with the pope from the new church have arrived . ”
“Oh? Their pope personally came? It sounds as though this is very important to them . ”
Mom placed her gla.s.s of wine down with a smile . I followed suit and stood up . Thankfully, Mom didn’t prepare dinner . She wanted to cook for me just as I predicted, but as she wasn’t fond of cooking, she wasn’t willing to cook . Hence, she never brought it up again after cooking for me that once . If I ate her cooking, I’d be puking somewhere instead of sitting at the table .
Nier got up and bowed: “Your Majesties, Daisy and I shall return to our room first, then…”
“No, Nier, come with us . Let the Valkyries take Daisy back . ”
I was going to nod, and let Nier go, but Mom got ahead of me . Nier hesitated for a second; however, she soon handed her daughter over to a Valkyrie . The Valkyrie was fl.u.s.tered, thereby making me worried she’d drop Daisy . Mom drew her sword and tossed it into Nier’s hand . Nier apparently understood what that meant . Due to not wearing a belt with a sword holster, Nier had to hold it in her hand . The Valkyrie behind us still followed us . That said, Mom didn’t tell her to leave, which was surprising to me .Advertis.e.m.e.nt
“If Mom’s plan was to have Nier protect her, why does she need a Valkyrie? If she doesn’t need a Nier when she has a Valkyrie, why bring Nier?” I pondered .
We headed toward the guest hall . There were five people inside . One of them wore a sky-blue robe, while the other four wore navy robes . The one dressed in the sky-blue robe held an exquisite bottle in his hand . I presumed it was the spring water we had our minds on .
We entered . Upon seeing us, they hastily saluted us and respectfully reported, “Your Majesties, please allow me to send my greetings to you on behalf of the new church and our G.o.ds . I have come here to provide you with all that you need . ”
Mom was indifferent to their humble att.i.tude . She pointed at the small bottle he lifted up, sat down and asked, “That’s the holy water, right?”
Heads bowed, they answered, “Yes . ”
Mom looked at me to indicate for me to grab the bottle . I nodded and grabbed it . It was heavy . I took a look . The water swished around and reflected the flames . The water resembled normal water no matter how I looked at it . I couldn’t see any issue with it . The Valkyrie by the side brought over a bowl . I poured the contents into the cup .
It was normal water as I thought . The Pope raised his head and smiled: “Your Majesty, that is our holy water . It is a symbol of G.o.d’s trust for us . This is also the reason that our G.o.d truly exists . We were once not pure believers . We blindly believed in G.o.ds that did not exist and acted according to our desires just as everyone else blindly following . That was until we saw a true miracle from G.o.d . Only then did we realise how insignificant we were and who protected us . ”
I smirked . If miracles were the work of G.o.d, Mommy Vyvyan would be my G.o.d . Mommy Vyvyan defied all rules and existences . There were no rules that could confine her . She wasn’t a demi-G.o.d for no reason . However, I suppose what they witnessed must’ve been G.o.d to them .
Mommy Elizabeth had a look at the bowl of normal water then revealed a doubtful smile and inquired, “This is the holy water that can heal wounds?”
The pope lowered his head and calmly responded: “Yes . This is the holy water that can heal all of humanity’s wounds and ailments . ”
I had my suspicions . I suddenly realised something, and that was that Mommy Elizabeth wasn’t wearing a face veil, which was why they didn’t dare to look her in the face . Though, that did make them appear to be fishy .
Mom glanced at Nier . Nier immediately cut her finger on her blade and then dipped her fonger into the water . Her entire sequence of movements was so smooth that she had taken her finger out from the water before I could even feel sorry for her . She showed Mom . Though blood still dripped onto the table, the wound on Nier’s finger had totally healed without any trace of any wound ever being there . I gently took hold of her hand and touched it . Feeling sorry for her, I sighed . She quietly giggled,and then grabbed hold of my hand . I then looked back at the water and remarked, “How miraculous . It can actually completely heal wound despite looking so normal . ”
“Exactly . That is a miracle . G.o.ds watch over us as ordinary beings, heals our wounds and consoles us, for we humans are their children . They are our mother, humanity’s mother . ”
“Your foot you are,” I thought to myself .
G.o.d’s children were elves . It didn’t have anything remotely to do with humans . Humanity was a product of natural selection . There was no G.o.d watching humanity .
“Hey, do you feel anything? What exactly is this? You should be able to recognise if there’s a problem, since you’re the spring’s conscious, right? Is this elven water or what?” I called out to the woman in my mind . She was the elves’ G.o.d, after all . I was sure that she could discern things when it came to elven mana .
She replied in an absent-minded fashion: “Hard to say . I can indeed sense a difference to humanity’s mana . Under normal conditions, you humans don’t have this type of power, let alone mana . In this water, however, there is mana, except that it’s not elven water . Elven water can gel . ”
“Water gels now?”
“I meant that the mana in the water looks strange no matter how I look at it . ”
I nodded: “Got it . ”
I found my answer in my mind . Seeing as it was elven water with strange mana in it, I managed to solve the mystery . The mana was definitely the mana the kid created . The kid’s mana might’ve flowed along the river to humanity’s lands, which humans coincidentally discovered . The mana turned out to be effective on humans . That led to them turning it into their so-called holy water, in turn, turning into the faith of the new church . Now, the only place that would be related to the river flowing from the elven lands would be… Troy City!
My Troy City was the only place that connected to the elven river . Troy City was built on the edge of the elves’ river . Consequently, the holy water must’ve been obtained from there . But alas, I had no time to make a trip to Troy City . Therefore, I didn’t need to worry about anything for the meantime . There didn’t seem to be an issue with the water, after all, did there…?
