Chapter 58 – The Lord’s Daughter Longs for the Wide World 21

«TN: It was brought to my attention that releasing too many chapters at once breaks the feed, so I’m going to publish a few at a time again. Besides, this chapter felt like a good place to stop»

Montavo recalled a story Phryne read to him a long time ago.

A story about a sword who chose the King.
The person who was able to pull that sword out of the stone would be granted the title of King.
The moment he did, he was transformed into a protagonist.

There were many stories similar to that.
It was probably one of the basic patterns of a story.

Young Montavo read all those stories and longs for it.

— I will some day get my hands on the best sword, too.

That was a transient dream of his youth, and would not normally come true —

But now — the chance to seize the dream was in front of him.


“This sword, for me …”

In the arena grounds, the sword Ghulcyut Kai threw and told him to use stood.

Montavo held his breath in the face of the overwhelming aura the sword possessed.

Now that it’s in front of him he understood, that this was a weapon that surpassed all others in the world.
The materialized mana of the sword wrapped around the blade like a snake.

It scared him.
But he wouldn’t even have a chance of winning against Phryne if he didn’t take this sword.

When the dust from when the sword was thrown in settled, Phryne would sure rush in to attack.
Then before that happens he had to be ready with the sword.

“— I’ll pull it out”

Isn’t it cowardice to be using Kai’s sword, he thought for an instant — but he thought again, no, it’s not

Meeting with Kai was one of Montavo’s experiences.
Then the weapon that Kai told him to use is a part of him too.

Without hesitating, he gripped the handle.

“— tsk…!”

The magic power in the form of a snake coiled around and crept up along Montavo’s arm.
The dense energy made his consciousness faint —

— Riiing …

A bell-like sound brought Montavo’s consciousness back.
It came from the Sacrament Cage hanging on his neck.

The Sacrament Cage vibrated as if encouraging its owner.

It frantically tried to whittle down Ghulcyut’s magic power. Fighting it together with him.

This rare magic item was one that Montavo gained with his own strength.
Because Montavo earnestly proved his strength, his father gave it to his third son.

My life has not entirely been in vain —!

He held his breath and opened his eyes wide.
He didn’t remember living a life that would lose to some sword.

He lived and was treated as dirty.
He lived every day fighting other people like animals.

His masters were Phryne and Kai.
He was raised by the two most excellent swordsmen in the world.

There was no reason for him to lose to the likes of a magic sword.

That definitely won’t happen.

He believed.

For sure.



He exhaled and pulled out the sword.

He gripped the handle strongly in both hands and pulled.
Phryne’s sword came in soon after and he parried it away.

The power of the demon sword even threw Phyre’s body back — no she jumped back on her own.

Phryne didn’t show even a speck of agitation seeing her disciple hold a demon sword.

This kind of unexpected thing was surely within Phryne’s expectations.
She had long understood that there’s no such thing as preestablished harmony in a fight.

Phryne jumped in again and again.

Her sword clashed against the demon sword.
Montavo’s thoughts from living as a humand and Phryne’s heart that walked the straight path of the sword butted heads against each other.

They each enhanced each other.

Power and speed rose up without limit.
Eyes could no longer follow.
Sounds came after the sense of touch.
It was a dance free from thought.
Thoughts came after.
Their bodies move half automatically.
The “Self” fused with the world.

The vivid image suddenly appeared in Montavo’s mind.

— An endless expanse of land, forests continuing every which way.

— Great trees with trunks like rocks, and the divine horned creatures that lived there.

— The great sea splashing up spray, galleons plowing over the surface.

— A land covered in sand and the scorching sun.


That was surely the sight Montavo should have seen.

If that day Montavo fulfilled Phryne’s wish and indicted his family — He would have left Coura and travelled the worldand saw these scenery.

Probably, together with the master he healed from poisoning.

“— I wanted to see it …” said Phryne while swinging her sword at high speed, “the sight of bocchan … becoming stronger with the strong people of the world … by your side …”

Large drops of tears fell from her eyes.

“Why … why … why … — why didn’t bocchan choose my story …!”

For the first time, his master’s sword was strained.
Its path wavered.
The deep sadness.
The wailing.
It all reached him.

“Yes … I didn’t choose you. Because I was weak, I didn’t choose you …”

His cheeks became hot.
Seems he was unable to completely block his master sword and was cut.
He was happy.
Now when he looks in a mirror, he will be reminded of her sword.

“— I didn’t choose you … and I have always regretted it”

He disliked her, but he was fond of her.
He disdained her, but he respected her.
And while he hated her, he loved her with his whole heart.

He never forgot about Phryne even for an instant.

“But I have accepted the story of my past where I remained in town — and with that, I’ll redo my story!”

As he put his resolve into words, Montavo swung Ghulcyut down.

He cut apart the story that should have been with the demon sword.

One blow from Ghulcyut struck Phryne’s sword —!


— *Kiiiiii* — ……


The long reverberating sound melted into the night.

Montavo and Phryne were facing each other and heard the sound.

They relished the world’s most beautiful sound with all their five senses.
Letting it infuse into their souls.

— Ah … it’s over …

When the sound stopped — something happened to Phryne’s thin sword.

Her sword was cut in half and fell to the ground.

“— bocchan … no, Montavo. It’s your win”


“Phryne …!”

The moment the match was settled, Montavo stabbed the demon sword on the ground and embraced his master.

She was hard and thin — his poisoned master had no meat on her body.

This hardness was proof of Montavo’s sin.
He had always been running from this.
He was not running.
He was facing her head on.
It was a mistake not to apologize just because he wouldn’t be forgiven.
He dearly, dearly embraced his sin.
Telling the one he threw away, I love you.

“— bocchan, you,” Phryne whispered to his ear, “you have found a wonderful story”

“— ah …”

His master now approved of him as he is.

His body trembled, and tears flowed.
Those were the words he had always wanted to hear.
He had always suffered because he never heard them.
Anguishing every night and every day, always, always —

*sshh*… the chains wrapping his soul disappeared.

“You spinning your own story, it’s so —”

Phryne said that and suddenly kissed Montavo in the mouth.

His master’s lips were very youthful for an old woman —

“— eh”

When their lips parted what he saw was a beautiful woman he’s never seen before.

Gallant and divine.

The woman that was almost like a goddess was wearing silver armor.
He only understood that she was Phryne.

“Montavo, live proudly on this world. — let’s meet again when your time comes”

Phryne said so leaving a beautiful smile — and she turned into sand.


“Wha …”

When Phryne kissed Montavo, she transformed into a beautiful woman.

Rejuvenated …? No, that was a complete transformation.

Phryne transformed into something completely different, just like my Mirror.

“Transforming with a kiss … I see, Phryne was an ubakawa 1 heroine”

Ubakawa …? Ah, yes, that one. Yes, I know that one”

Liu-chan, pretending to know.

“If you already know then I don’t need to explain”

“I’m very sorry I’ll dip myself in boiling water so please teach me”

“Well, no need for the boiling water … — it happens a lot in stories that heroines were transformed into ugly forms. When they fulfilled certain conditions with the Protagonists, they would get their original forms back. Like, being loved, or exchanging a kiss. So the ugly forms they had before getting their beauty back is called the ubakawa

If Montavo set off on a journey with Phryne — she would certainly have gotten that form back and they’d travel through the world getting all friendly like.

They would probably get married and have children.
Montavo … you have it too good.

However, Montavo didn’t choose Phryne. Which was why she died ugly.
Then only after she died she was able to successfully throw off her disguise.

Because she and Montavo opened their hearts to each other.

— Which means, that just now were the echoes of the story Montavo didn’t choose.

“But then it’s really something like a ghost, huh …”

How did it materialize …?
Who or what gave Phryne a body —

Well, whatever … let’s think about that later. Now, we should —”

Because I have finally obtained what I wanted.

I looked at Montavo who had become strong, collapsed on the ground.


After being given my sword, Montavo splendidly used it.
He won against the trauma that was his “greatest enemy”.
Having received a deep wound from his master’s sword in his face, he gained a “stigmata”
He had also encountered the goddess that was Phryne’s true form 2

I had no complaints with this.

Montavo’s now a fine —

“Congratulations, you’re now a Protagonist”

      1. Oh, i mean on Novel Updates. That is manually updated. And wont flood the feed. It doesn’t really matter. Releasing all of those chapters at once and nearly catching up to the most current raw so soon after starting has elevated your status as a translator to the realms of Legend. A Prophet, a Hero, a Saint, a God.

      2. NovelUpdates is manually updated? that’s news to me. How do you do that..?:/

      3. ah, but it still doesn’t solve the problem for wp reader or rss readers…

  1. your mass release breaks the feeds?

    that is fine
    there men like me who want to watch the world burn

    so more mass release please

    1. He will become a good person who drinks and looks down on others. It’s OK to have negative character traits when you’re a protagonist. 😉

  2. And that Phryne better not meet with Moteki, EVER, otherwise she would be conquered by the wrong protagonist….. 😎

  3. If Montavo becomes a real protagonist and starts killing demi-humans, will Moteki be forced to kill Montavo? Making a new problem to remove an existing one huh… At this rate, he would have thousands of sex-friends but still have a long way to go to kill all reincarnators… Also, how will he conquer female reincarnators? Will he seduce the male harem of the female reincarnators? I am not homophobic but… HAHAHA

    1. Remember that montavo is not reincarnation. Motoki’s target only reincarnation ones. Sure if montavo become protagonist, he’s probably killing lots of demi humans & demons but not as much as reincarnation lot. And people whose originally from this world couldn’t become as strong as reincarnation heroes…

  4. (•-•)
    Montavo best grill
    Best gurl
    BEST GRILL 2016

    (write like 5pages essay of Montavo, but at the end i was like ‘eh, its not important’ and delete the whole comment)

  5. Speculations.
    Phyrne might be a literal goddess for all we know, she fell in love with Montavo and tried to change his fate of being a side character but failed because the other goddess’ influence is stronger. Since Montavo is on the verge of breaking away from the story due to mc’s intrusion and the rumors of ghosts coming back, which could be considered as faith, she can materialize. Furthermore she said meeting him again when his time comes, might put him in a reincarnator status. Or well, shes just an unlucky human soul and she’ll meet him in the after life.

  6. Thanks 4 the chapter!

    The premise reminds me somewhat of 500 kingdoms, where the world force the people to live fairy tales.

  7. Seeing someone releases 5+ chapters a day will get attention and attention means more readers(this is how i got here in the first place) and more readers mean more fanbase.. profit.

  8. I like how the story doesn’t get repetitive with just developing the harem members. The Montavo arc is really interesting too and saves the story quite a bit! A lot more focus went into Montavo’s development then I originally thought would happen.

  9. This novel is too good 。゚ ( ゚´Д`)  ゚。 I love how motoki allows us to see more depth in all of these “side” characters. Montavo best girl (இдஇ )

  10. I thought reading a Netori story would be super weird, but this is actually very well written and good food for thought; especially for those who write similar stories.

  11. Google translate helped me.
    Motoki is bisexual, he defends diversity thats why he has no problem like men, chapter 50 shows us that

    1. I would take what google translate says with a grain of salt…

      a 5 ton grain of salt…

  12. I’m a bit appalled by some of the japanese readers who read this on syousetsu, some of them are creepy ero otaku who protested that the author wrote too much serious drama and they wanted the author to increase the mindless ero content. I hope the author doesn’t listen to this garbage readers…

  13. that was a very nice story and a touching chapter. made me teary-eyed. this is what’s missing from novels these days. the classic stories of legends, heroes and hard work.
