Chapter #15 – Pr
Alea Jacta Est
“Ottar . That child had become stronger again . ”
“Once again, is it . ”
“Ehehe . ”
The dim interior . The dusk that covered the window followed into the depths of the
The Magic Lamp on the table seems to be flickering like a candle flame . Freya
quietly lifted the corner of her mouth .
The skyscraper facility built directly on top of the dungeon . The very top floor .
There are a small number of furnishings . Although the decorations had at least
reached the degree where it didn’t match the top-class suite and spacious room, but
no matter which decoration it was, it was extremely extravagant . At the same time,
the room’s own decoration was also extremely elegant .
The giant bookshelf, the huge bed that was contrary to common sense, and the dark
red colored unique carpet . A painting of the sun and the moon was hanged and
occupied the entire wall .
The silver haired Goddess held a wine glass while she was immersed in a topic
with a carefully selected follower .
“Looks like I saw it wrong . It is not the
. Just by obtaining Magic, that
child’s brightness has gone up another level……In my opinion, it is like a material
becoming more refined . ”
Looking towards the glass cup that was shrouded by the cold air that exuded from
the moonlight that enetered the room, Freya stared at the surface of the water that
was reflecting the light .
The young white wine that was being illuminated did not have a deep color . Of
course, the taste was also .
But Freya seemed to treat this transparent color as irreplaceable . Her silver eyes
narrowed to a smiling shape, and she brought the glass to her lips .
“Development of the material……The improvement is apparent, right?”
“Perhaps that is true . ”
Standing in the room was a solemn Ottar, who confirmed briefly .
Maintaining in an upright posture without moving, his gaze towards his Main
Goddess as a follower was serene .
While being guarded by the rust-colored eyes, even if it was slowly, Freya lowered
half her eyelids .
“However, there is only one……only one, an existence that hinders the brightness .
It is almost like chains that bind the child . ”
“That’s right, the material has already been enough . But the core is not enough . No,
the core itself is there, but it seems very vague……Is it missing something or is it
being prevented . ”
“Ottar, do you know?” Freya turned around to seek for advice . In short, it was
because they were both male children, so she inquired this .
The statue-like beastman temporarily tightened his mouth, then he responsded to
his owner’s question .
“Probably a predestined relationship”
“Yes . As Freya-sama had said, it is the predestined relationship between that
person and the Minotaur……Being unable to wipe the stain from his past . Perhaps
it had become a thorn in a place where the actual person have no knowledge of,
and is torturing him . ”
She had once allowed Ottar to listen about the dispute between Bell and the
Minotaur . Freya, herself, did not hear this directly from Bell’s mouth . In the end, it
was just a rumor of some sort she had heard .
He did not exceed the limits of speculation, but suffered a crushing defeat to the
ferocious Bull and fled in panic . This was probably true .
Freya placed her folded fingers onto her jaw .
“In other words, a trauma……Children really are very delicate . Even if we have a
thing called persistence, and will absolutely never stick to the past .
Interesting…… . Or should I say, from your perspective, we are just happily passing
“That is not true . ”
“If only he could advance a bit more, then I will not be so bored……”
Towards Ottar, who maintained a gracious attitude, while saying “Well that’s
okay” she smiled slightly . Then she looked at him once again .
“Then, what should I do to remove the thorn that is binding that child?”
Throwing what can be considered as a provocative glare, Freya inquired this
question to her follower .
“In order to bid farewell to the predestined relationship of the past, there is no
other way beside breaking apart that symbol from the past with your own hands . ”
Ottar continued to positively reply to the question raised by his Main Goddess .
“… . . Even if it is you, is it the same?”
“Men are fallible creates, this is what I believe in . ”
Freya smiled and moved her line of sight .
She, who had one of her worries eliminated, revealed a good mood and began to
(If the Minotaur had become the lingering past that enveloped that child, then the
answer is simple . Doing nothing and waiting is enough . If that child becomes more
mature, sooner or later, he will indeed be able to cross that barrier……)
Waiting for a period of time, Bell will obtain the strength to defeat the Minotaur .
Able to get through his past lingering past . There will not be any problems .
(Then, waiting until the dawn comes when he defeats the Minotaur, there will not
be anything that will block that child’s brightness……)
If it was like that, he will soon be able to appear in front of Freya in a completed
and matured form . To the extent where even she would be able to see god .
With wishful eyes, or so she frankly thought . Towards the current Freya, Bell was
currently the center of her attention, and was more attractive than anyone .
Craving towards that boy .
She had even thought to the point where she could continue to put her fingertips on
that position .
Thinking about this, Freya suddenly asked Ottar .
“Ottar . ”
“What is it?”
“You, do you have any opinions? I become entranced by that child, and did not
care about everybody, who already belonged to my
Towards the silent Ottar, whose expression remained unchanged, Freya continued
to speak .
“If that child becomes stronger than you, what should we do?”
“Compared to you, perhaps I will cherish that child even more . I may also even
deprive you from your current position, and maybe even let that child replace it . ”
“All is up to Freya-sama’s feelings . ”
“Are you not jealous?”
Ottar quietly revealed his sincerity, as if it was a feeling of trust, and said .
“Your love towards everyone are equal . There is none that are special, regardless
of the merits . ”
“I firmly believe, that even if my own shadow has disappeared from this spot, your
love will still not disappear . ”
The silver eyes and the rust-colored eyes exchanged gazes .
In this silence, Ottar curved his giant body and quietly bowed .
“I ranted . ”
“It does not matter . I might as well say that my love towards you is growing even
more . ”
“I am extremely honored . ”
As if they were speaking sarcastic remarks, it was going back and forth between
the two of them .
After that, Freya revealed a slightly evil smile, and weaved out a beautiful voice .
“But it is really regrettable . You, who is stubborn, I want to see a bit of your
jealous appearance . ”
“If you wish . ”
“……Fu, Ufufu! Ahahaha! Please, Ottar? Could you not be so funny? If I see your
face seriously jealous, I do not have the confidence to hold back my laughter . ”
As if she felt that it was funny from the bottom of her heart, Freya laughed . Using
her hand to cover her mouth, just like a young and innocent girl holding her
Speaking of Ottar’s side, his face, that was stiff at any point in time, was just
slightly at that time——As if he was embarrassed ——shakened . His pig ears
growing from his head also slightly twisted in a weird direction .
Freya, who laughed enough, wiped her eyes while understanding the feelings of
inner embarrassment of her subordinate, and seemed to want to change the
atmosphere and the topic .
“Now, Ottar, what do you think?”
“……What do you mean?”
“About that child . Is my anxiety worrying you?”
She attempted to inquired based on her previous idea .
Ottar quickly regained his composure and carefully listened .
“That child, even if I do not take action, he will still become stronger . Someday he
will be able to cut apart the predestined relationship you talked about . ”
“But, at the same time I am also very troubled, is this really okay . Although I
cannot use words to explain it clearly…… Sooner or later, in this process, as long
as I am willing to spend some time…… Compared to complaints, yes, I feel that it
will become very scary . Even though there isn’t such a thing, but it feels like as if I
am about to fall . ”
Am I thinking too much, this monologue whisper .
Towards having no problems, or having nothing wrong in Bell’s state, Freya had a
hazy feeling that was indescribable . Can I really let this continue on, this kind of
There was no conclusive evidence . But looking at the numerous children…… she,
who had talented faction members, was thinking if it was good to let time run its
At this moment, Ottar narrowed his eyes for the first time .
“Ottar, do you also feel that it is fine to let time solve this problem?”
“Ehhhh, there is no doubt . In the end it will become like that . Only……”
Ottar suddenly stopped speaking, then he began once again with absolute
“The people who do not take risk will never be able to break through the
imprisonment . This is also the truth . ”
He stopped .
His own proposition .
The contrasting remarks of a half-elf girl that was not here .
He, who had bet his life numerous times, and finally built up to his current
situation of a true swordsman . He decisively said this sentence about how people
who do not take risk will never reach the very peak .
This also implies about the possibility of stimulating the
boy, that Freya could not see through .
That’s correct .
What Freya can not see through, which Ottar was able to predict, was the boy’s
“……This time, the action towards that child is all up to you, Ottar . ”
The Goddess of Beauty placed down the glass that was exuding the fragrance of
grape wine .
Closing her eyes, she seemed to be somewhat indifferent and leaned on the back of
the chair .
Only at this moment, Ottar did not conceal his surprise .
“…… . What kind of wind will blow this time?”
“But, after all, compared to me, you understand more about that boy’s situation . ”
Nodding slightly, and after leaking out sounds of her throwing a fit .
Freya raised her head, narrowed her eyes and revealed a flirtatious smile .
“To the extent where I am jealous . ”
