As soon as Adrian held my hand in my mother’s arms, people’s eyes gathered to me.
It feels like no one in the world was here except for us and every sound was muted.
With the petals flying in the wind, I could see the people I love so much.
Like Lea, who covers her mouth with both hands, the blunt chairman, who was about to cry, my four maids who burst into tears, Zachary and Wale, and-
“See, she came back. I knew she’d come back!”
“You’re so late, Leblaine.”
Johann, and my smiling dad.
After regressing four times… No, five times, eventually, I got the peace I longed for.
“Come here. Hurry!”
Dahlia, Linda, and Yuni, who grabbed me from both sides, made a fuss and sat me down.
They treated me as if I were a person who died and survived.
Having repeatedly said I was okay like a parrot since I came to the castle, I opened my mouth wide when I saw the mirror across the sofa.
My hair is all messed up as if it was burnt, and my face is covered with dust, making it hard to recognize.
‘Well, I crossed the passage right after the battle with Neliard.’
It was the young Leblaine of another parallel world that was washed, and my original body was left untouched after battle.
I had a sad face, and the maid said, “Don’t worry!
Then they brought the washing water with a fuss.
Ugh, it’s embarassing!
Whenever they wash me with the towel, the water gets dirty.
Reina merely laughed seeing us.
“Please understand the feelings of those who wished to take care of you.”
“I know, but I’m already at this age… right. Reina, how did you survive?”
I made a wish, but I was curious exactly how it came true.
Then the chairman stepped in.
To sum up what he said, it was like this.
After I disappeared into the passage, the continent was confused in the aftermath of the war.
Other than Mojas, who became a battlefield, half of the empire was eaten by the darkness of Neliard, and other countries were in trouble from destroying the temple.
“Are there effects from destroying the temple?”
“It is said that the sick or vulnerable died from the poison that flowed out after destroying the temple.”
“So that’s what happened…”
“It was a nightmare. At least 10,000 people in each country and 210,000 people in Mojas died.”
“That led to festering wounds in each country. There are places where everything needed to be reconstructed due to the war. It took us two years to clean up.”
“Most of the countries that have changed their leaders or have fallen into ruin were countries founded by the power of Neliard.”
The damage was great, but thanks to this, Dubblede started to become independent withou interference from other countries.
After each country was organized, my dad became the king and went on his first schedule, which is…….
“The old highland meeting. It is a meeting where the kings of each country gather to discuss the future of the continent.”
The kings decided to hold a ritual to console the souls who lost their lives in the destruction of the temple, those who died in the darkness of Neliard, and those who died because of the temple. They’ll do it in the sky festival.
“Are they asking some god to comfort their soul? It’s not Neliard right?”
People laughed when I asked that.
“Yes, of course…”
Henry, who shed a smile, made eye contact with Isaac.
“Yes, of course!”
“Serga is our god.”
The last to answer was Johann.
‘Then please… … !’
I looked at Adrian and he nodded.
“Thanks to the sky festival, Serga crossed the passage and was able to meet you and me in a parallel world.”
I covered my mouth with both hands.
‘Right. Serga was able to exert that much power.’
Because people’s beliefs gathered in a god and restored their strength due to the sky festival.
“At the end of the sky festival, there was a solar eclipse. When the world was all covered in darkness, a group of lights flocked. And people began to show up in a group of lights.”
“To be precise, those who died by the darkness of Neliard, or those who died by the beasts made by the temple at that time.”
“Are they calling the holy beast only a beast now?”
“It seems that the dead are brought back to life by divine intervention… But when is the time?”
“When do you think?”
Why are you asking me that?
I don’t know… … no way.
“…When I was four years old?”
My regression begins at the age of four.
‘It’s because I said I would offer my ability for my wish.’
“Ah! By the way, Mom and Reina weren’t killed by a beast. But how…?”
“The temple’s holy beast, no, beasts is older than we thought. Cardinal Paul and the Priest Benedict seem to have done this before killing me and Raina.”
‘Ah, that’s why Benedict was able to move even though he was injured by the beast.’
“To be exact, I was killed by the explosion I made, so only Reina should have survived.”
“Perhaps God Serga gave me a new life because someone loved you so much.”
“Someone saved me.”
I bit my lips.
“What happened to Serga? Then does Serga have believers now? Dubblede have Serga religion now?”
My family was silent. Even the chairman, Seria, and other people could not easily answer and remained silent.
I looked at people anxiously.
“What happened, huh? Adrian!”
“He have passed away.”
“Even if he was a god or even if ohe used the power of devils, he wouldn’t have been able to easily fulfill your wish. Probably….”
I jgot up to my feet.
Adrian quickly grabbed me.
“Remember Serga when he made your wish come true.”
“Did he have any regrets in his face?”
“He is the creator of the world. There is no way he could not have foreseen such a future.”
“So, Leblaine, it’s the future he has arranged for you until you die.”
In ancient times, a conversation between young Leblaine and Serga came to mind.
I said, looking across the river while holding his hand.
[Serga, what’s your dream?]
[My brother dreams of a world where children are not hungry. My dream is to eat a big cake all by myself.]
Smiling, he lightly rubbed my cheek with his fingertips.
[A world without god.]
[A world without god?]
[A world where even a three-year-old can carve their own path without god.]
[Ummm… … .]
[Is it too difficult to understand?]
[Yes…but I hope your wish comes true. Since Serga is a very, very good god!
Ah, I see.
“As you saved me and my children, this time we will save you.”
This is what he meant by saving him.
Because I made his wish come true through my life.
“In the very distant future, you may meet again in a life where you are not Leblaine, and I am not Adrian. There is no future that isn’t possible.”
We held hands and smiled at each other.
I finally feel like I’m back.
In this perfect world where even god’s wish came true.
On an afternoon full of sunlight, a wind blew from outside the window. As if God Serga was petting our heads.
“Ah, but what happened to the devils…”
Before I could finish all the words that came to mind, my family shouted.
“I can’t do that!”
Mom was scolding my brothers and dad as both of their hands are in the air and knees on the floor.
“Don’t shout at my son-in-law.”
“S-son-in-law? Mother, son-in-law?!”
“He’s my son-in-law.”
“I never gave permission, Lisette.”
When mom and I groaned at the same time, my dad and my brothers kept their mouths shut. It was an expression of great dissatisfaction.
Mom patted Adrian’s shoulder and smiled.
“It is an honor.”
“Of course, I did this only for my son-in-law who is good to my daughter.”
My mother, who clapped her hands, smiled brightly.
“Welcome to Dubblede.”
It was kind of a terrifying smile.
I whispered to Adrian.
“Did you not know? The final boss of Dubblede is mom…”
“…Would a parallel world be better?”
“Well, what happened to the parallel world?”
“Integrated. Because I lost my powers.”
“Then did you become an ordinary human too?”
I saw Adrian smiling. And after a while, I hugged Adrian tightly.
“An ordinary life and an ordinary lover are the best!”
I finally got my hands on it.
An ordinary and happy life.
“You’re not married yet, Leblaine.”
Mom shouted to dad and brothers again.
“You’re noisy. Now that my daughter is back, I have to prepare for the succession ceremony. Let’s leave the kids to share the joy of reunion and move!”
We didn’t know then.
The fuss that will come after this peace.
And so, the hellish proposal relay begin the next day.
