Chapter 78 – Fourth Form

It’s been over two months since the fight with Tenryu in Gallia.
The end of the winter was near. But the spring seemed to be still far ahead..
It’s snowing badly at the place where I am now, it’s definitely a no-go for a horse drawn carriage.

Apparently…..there were vineyards on each side of the road, although it’s covered in snow now.
We continued forward along the snow covered path into a pure white plains.

I visited this place once before. It was with Roxy back then, so it’s from quite a while ago. It’s where I harvested some grapes with her, but I couldn’t really tell where it is now since the territory of Heart family suffered severe winters.

After passing through rows and rows of houses, I arrived at the front of the largest house.
It’s a nostalgic place. I never thought before that I would return here .

First, take a deep breath, and knock on the door.
There was no reply…..When the bad feeling rose up on my mind as I opened the unlocked door, the servants were rushing in panic. They don’t usually do this, so it’s easy to tell that there was something wrong.

However, even though I could be counted as a trespassing intruder, the nearest maid still called out to me.
As the maid gave me a look, she raised her voice in surprise.

[What’s the matter? You are, Fate right? Fate Graphite who came from the Royal Capital with Roxy-sama to harvest some grapes?]

I’m alone this time, but that aside, Maya-san who was the maid I met when I visited here before seemed to be afraid of something. First of all, it’s necessary to dispel her fear. Thus I started to tell my story.

[Roxy Heart-sama is save. She’ll return home after the assignment on Gallia is over.]

Maya-san’s face became relaxed upon hearing that. Then why did I come here? In the case of that question, I showed it to her.
It’s a natural reaction. So I removed my cloak and showed an emblem.

[This…what do you mean?]

[It’s just as you can tell. I’m sorry but, I want to see Aisha Heart-sama. Is that okay?]

[That’s…]

Maya-san’s complexion changed as soon as she saw the emblem. In any case, I also ran out of words.
Judging from the situation of this mansion and Maya-san’s attitude, I could already tell.

[So her condition isn’t well, is she?]

[…yes. Her physical condition broke down yesterday evening. If the doctor didn’t come immediately…]

[I see….]

[At the moment, I’m trying to arrange some horse messenger to inform Roxy-sama. But]

There was a strong blizzard outside. It’ll be reckless to go out on a horseback at this weather.
I tried to cheer the depressed Maya-san.

[It’s alright. It’s exactly why I came here. I have a promise I need to fulfill to Aisha-sama.]

[Promise?]

[Yeah, an important promise.]

From back then, it did took me quite a long time, but here I am.
My attitude which didn’t seem to accept a no for an answer, as well as the emblem I brought, pressured Maya-san to guide me to Aisha-sama’s bedroom.
The other servants we passed along the way stopped to stare at me, but I had no time explain.

When I entered the bedroom with Maya-san, Aisha-sama was lying on the canopied bed. Even with just a glance, I could already tell the urgency.
Around her, there were employees and an old man who seemed to be the doctor.
Everyone wore a surprised look at the intrusion. So I tried to explain myself.

[I’m sorry for the sudden intrusion, but I have little time. I’m Fate Barbatos. I’ve inherited the position as the head of the Barbatos family from Sword Saint Aaron Barbatos. I’ll be taking over the treatment of Aisha-sama from now on. It’ll be helpful if you people moved away a little.]

I showed the emblem with Barbatos family coat of arms on it to everyone as I approached Aisha-sama who was sleeping on the bed.
The old man who seemed to be the doctor raised his voice.

[Treatment!? I don’t know. Up until now I’ve tried everything I can….I think it’s….already]

The old man’s shoulder drooped. I put my hand on his shoulder, and reassured him.

[It’s still possible. Please look at this left arm]

[An arm without any scratches, why does it has anything to do with this?]

[I lost my left arm a few months ago. But I do have a power that allowed me to regrow it back.]

[Impossible….such thing is impossible. Impossible…]

The doctor could only distrust me for what I said. It’ll be not that easy after all… Being able to restore a lost arm isn’t something that make any sense in this world. Since he’s a doctor, I can actually understand why he doubted me.

However, I couldn’t afford to stop here. When I was about to force myself through, Aisha-sama regained her consciousness.
And firmly looked at me with her empty stare.

[…well…..Fate. You finally came….I’m glad.]

[Yes, because I’ve promised you.]

[Then…can you tell me the answer….from that time?]

I didn’t answer to that immediately,

[Before I do that, can you do me favor? I want to see Aisha-sama to be healthy first.]

[……but I…..already…… Understood.. When that time comes….please tell me the answer.]

[Yeah, of course.]

Since I already got her consent, the doctor couldn’t say anything else.
Then, I immediately took out Greed from under my cloak. The pitch black staff――his fourth form.
In order to master this, I had to repeatedly shed my own blood. Those two were devils and demons….both Myne and Eris wouldn’t accept any mistakes on my part while they taught me. I don’t really want to recall the experience, since it was THAT harsh.
In comparison to that, training with Aaron was a joyride.

[Greed, are you ready?]

『Yes, anytime. You already know this, but I’ll be taking 40% of your stats as per usual.』

[That’s a cheap price to pay.]

『Hahaha, if you say so. Then I shall take it, 40% of your stats!』

Along with the feeling of weakness, Greed started to change shape. The previously elegant and beautiful staff, turned into something horrendous.
The other servants were scared that they backed down. Maya-san, among the clamoring, hid her head while crouching.

I activated the secret of the fourth form, twilight healing.
There is no recovery magic in this world. But it’s now possible, with this method.
The requirement is using up 40% of my stats that had reached Area E. Also, this secret couldn’t be used to resuscitate someone who had already died. And if the physical damage that the target suffered was great, the stat cost will be even greater.

Even so, I can see the great possibilities from this form. For example, I could use it to save the life of an important person.

A scarlet flow of magic was invoked over Aisha-sama’s body, and a whitish flame covered her body. The treatment has begun.
Thanks to the flame healing property, her complexion started to grow better in a visible rate.
The servants, who were rather disappointed at first, now became relaxed after looking at her condition.

58375301_2318200385087745_81010079704285184_n

By the time the invocation is completed, Aisha-sama seemed completely refreshed. She touched her body, trying to comprehend what has just happened.
And afterward, she turned towards me, and smiled.

[I can see that you’ve been working hard. To think you’d be able to do such a mysterious thing]

[That’s right, Aisha-sama]

After laughing to each other for a short while, Aisha asked.

[Now can you tell me, your answer?]

[…..Roxy Heart needs you. As her immediate relative, I need you to watch over her wherever she goes. That’s why I came here. I’m no longer the Fate Graphite from that time. Right now, I’m Fate Barbatos, the head of the Barbatos family.]

Aisha-sama seemingly thought about something, but otherwise remained silent.
When I was about to leave the room, I heard a voice.

[About this, does that child know?]

[No.]

[Right….]

When I closed the door behind me, I could faintly hear [This will definitely surprise Roxy. I’m going to need to see the state of the Kingdom now!].
I think I’d made Aisha-sama to be too healthy….While feeling a little uneasy, I left the mansion.

I came back to the snowy road, and joined the one who’d been waiting for me on the huge tree atop the hill. Her hair was pure white like the color of snow. On her back was a huge black axe disproportionate with her small young body.
She asked me with an expressionless face as I came over.

[Is the errand over?]

[Yeah, it was a good decision to rush in. I would’ve been late if otherwise.]

[Right, good to hear that. Then let’s go.]

We aimed for the Kingdom on the snowy road. Other than that, Eris had arrived there in advance.
If I let her wait for too long, I’d no idea what she’d do to me later on. I also get to meet that bar owner again, and I’ll be asking for that good wine he’d talked about back then.

    1. 《Bloody Ptarmigan》ought to be the bow (?) really high attack power/penetration
      《Deadly Inferno》should be the sythe which can cut through anything (?)
      《Reflection Fortress》obviously is the shield and is able to erect a barrier (could it reflect damage?)

      last one should be obvious considering it was revealed this chapter.

      2. thanks, considering that was the chapter it was introduced i think twilight healing wasn’t really needed to be stated.

        read so many novels that some of the minor details of characters special moves tend to blur together.

    2. Well Aaron seems to offer him to become a part of his family in short to be an adopted son,. but it seems that the answer fate gave is “let me think about it” kinda xD
      I guess he decided to accept the offer of Aaron since he can’t be with roxy anymore because the gluttony hates roxy. I guess being Aaron’s adopted son might be a good choice, it might get him to roxy again but the problem is the hatred of the gluttony skill towards roxy. xD

      1. Well i don’t think it’s hate it’s more a crave for the feeling that can fill a person to the upmost.

  6. I think from here on, is something like reform arc. They need to change everything from bottom to top so that humans could become more stronger because making crown tier humans with the trigger of Roxy’s death has failed. Well it’s just my speculation though xD
    And will Fate be able to be together with Roxy? Since last time gluttony skill doesn’t really like her apparently.

Its been 2 months from galia, so yeah it has some unrelated parts, and as the author note says, this is the first cap of part 4, he only fulfil some promises in the meanwhile xd but almost all was on the previous chapters, the only thing that really kicked me out was the position of head family.

  8. Anyone can explain something to me since it’s really hard for me to re-read the chapters:

    1. What exactly Fate promised to Aisha?
    2. Why gluttony hates Roxy while Roxy is the one who help Fate back to normal after killing Tenryu?

    Thank you very much!

    Like

    1. For the first one. I just think it was about taking care of Roxy or something. As for why gluttony hates Roxy I think it’s quite simple.. Roxy is the reason why gluttony could not take over Fate. Of course it hates her since her existence denies it of Fate’s soul.

  11. Twilight Healing huh? How nostalgic, *Boosto*

    Oh good they didn’t forget to heal Aisha, but that certainly was a surprise, him deciding to take on the role as head of Barbatos. I guess he really has dropped Roxy hasn’t he. They are both considered last children of the families they represent. If he were to ever marry Roxy, wouldn’t one of the 2 disappear? Well I guess they could find a way to pull off some noble rules and laws to keep both families going or combine them, so perhaps there’s still hope.

  12. So new arc is in the kingdom? If their original plan was to have a crown tier human born (I gotta say, not a great plan), but anyways, could that mean that Envy and puppet-Norden were a part of the plan?

    There was the Guardian of the Kingdom title for Eris-sama, and “Protector of the Kingdom” title for the Tenryu, then was killing Roxy’s dad also a part of their plan?

    Anyways, they seemed to be after changing the kingdom, so perhaps this arc is a fight against the Holy Knights? but it’s hard to think of the holy knights as opponents for them when all 3 are possibly area E combatants, or perhaps there is some mastermind level opponent hidden behind the scene controlling the kingdom, or perhaps it might be possible for a holy knight to reach the area E, and so there are knights of those level to fight, (If this is the case, then there’s hope for Roxy-sama-nim yet)

  13. Wonder if they’ll explore the fact that Mukuro should be a wanted murderer at the very least in the capital, because they didn’t touch that the last couple of arcs.
