[8th Round] The First Spirit

 

That was a spirit in a female form that had substance . It had two pairs of wings like dragonflies’ on its back, its ears were pointy like fairies’ . But it’s chest wasn’t flat .

 

And there was a crucial difference .

 

Spirits didn’t need to cover their genital with underwear since their sex didn’t show clearly on the outside whether they were female or male .

 

Because they laid eggs like birds .

 

Spirits were speculated to have an organ called ‘cloaca’ in which their genitals and anus were combined .

 

Why it was a speculation, was because I had never dissected spirits before .

 

 Request: please don’t do it even if you have the chance to……

 

Miss Trainee Teacher . The development of the human race started from curiosity . Keep that in mind .

 

 Sigh: in this world there are also truths that are better unknown . If the noble image of spirits is ruined, the childhood innocence of the innocent fantasy children would also be broken .

 

Ah! I remember something from the past that you mentioned childhood innocence .

There was a time when I stopped eating eggs for a while after finding out about cloaca from a documentary . I felt nauseous just by looking at eggs and dishes with eggs in them .

 

But it didn’t last long .

 

Bread, mayonnaise, steamed eggs, omelette rice, egg rolls……

 

My appetite won against my aversion .

 

“You over there… you’re the hero coming to save me right? Aren’t you looking at me like some delicious chicken…?” The spirit looked at me with an anxious look in its eyes .

 

The First Spirit in the center of the underground plaza, the spirit closest to being nature incarnate, was definitely different . I was sure it had vaguely read my thought of dissecting spirits .

 

“First, introduce yourself . ” I decided to hear it first before I made a decision .

 

“Yes . I’m the First Spirit born in the ancient Fantasia world . Land, fire, wind, water, heart —you can say I’m like the mother of the five Spirit Kings who control each of these five kinds of spirits . ”

 

“So you’re saying you’re an auntie . ”

 

“… hearing you say something like that makes me want to hit you if only my body was free . ”

 

The First Spirit was a bit bigger than my arm . Of course, I wasn’t talking about an ordinary 3 year-old’s’ arm . I was 3 years old under the Empire Resident Registration Act (I made it . ), but my build was similar to an adult .

 

Still that didn’t change the fact that the spirit was small .

 

The spirit’s body was chained up with the devil’s chains . Not only its arms and legs but also its body .

 

Except for its oval face, that looked like it was around 16 years old, its whole body was set so that it couldn’t make even the slightest move .

 

I extended my hand out .

 

“Oh! Spirits can be touched . ”

 

Poke poke .

 

It was said that only those with pure heart could touch spirits . But I didn’t believe it . Because so far I hadn’t been able to just touch them, I could also cut them up with skills .

 

But I decided to believe it starting from today .

 


Poke poke!

 

The First Spirit that Mr Hero with a pure and innocent heart touched was very fluffy .

 

“… I’m not sure if human culture has changed over the years, but don’t they usually call this sexual harassment?”

“I’m 3 years old . ”

 

So it’s legal .

 

“First Spirit . How did you get captured here? And who’s that fairy?” Lanuvel asked useless questions to the spirit .

 

“Such a good question, cute young lady . Self-proclaimed 3 years old Mr Hero, isn’t asking these questions the normal thing to do instead of kneading a spirit you saw for the first time? Or am I being overly sensitive because I don’t know about the trends and common sense these days?”

 

“You’re the normal one! Lanuvel can guarantee that . ”

 

“Fiuuh! It’s a relief . Anyways, I’ll answer your questions . That fairy Mr Hero knocked over a little while ago is the wife of the 3rd Fairy King . ”

 

…The 3rd Fairy King?

 

The words piqued my interest . So I stopped poking at the first spirit with my finger and asked,

“By any chance, are you talking about the unfortunate Fairy King who loves young human ladies’ large breasts?”

 

I still couldn’t believe it, but Boss K whom I met at the Hero Festival introduced himself as the 3rd Fairy King .

He described the human city as heaven…

 

“Technically speaking, he didn’t like his flat species… . . oh?! How did 3 years-old Mr Hero know that?! The fact that the 3rd Fairy King hated his own species must’ve been twisted and known as the opposite though . ”

 

“I’m kind of amazing . ”

 

“The new Mr Hero has a lot of secrets… . ”

 

The first spirit kept on explaining,

“The 3rd Fairy King was a freak with an unfortunate preference like you said, but he’s a great king who had built the country to be country-like by uniting the fairy species that used to live with difficulty as tribal existences before then . ”

 

“Hee~ what’s the relationship between you two?”

 

“We were friends . So please refrain from imagining weird things! There would be no way it could get into this small body!”

 

“I didn’t say anything . ”

 

“Ah?!”

 

The best achievement the 3rd Fairy King had was to be friends with the First Spirit .

 

A long time ago .

 

The born-timid fairies were a weak species that had no strength except for living long .

 

As baseless rumors spread —like you will be rejuvenated if you sleep with a fairy and you will live long healthily if you drink fairy blood— they started to randomly get hunted by humans . Persecution they used to face from human females who were jealous of fairies’ beauty and youthfulness was especially severe .

 

The reason?

 

Because fairies were weaker than humans .

 

Reproductivity rates of fairies with a long lifespan was extremely low according to the law of nature, and it wasn’t like they were born powerful like a monster either .

The fairy population as a whole gradually became older since the rate of the newer generation being born couldn’t keep up with the rate of the hunting .

 

Experienced fairies were naturally in charge of crucial roles . They passed the dangerous outside activities on to the young ones .

 

As a result, the young fairies that lacked experience and were careless easily got hunted by humans and monsters .



Fairies’ best strength was their lifespan, but they couldn’t use it at all . Let alone using it, it became their weakness .

 

“We helped the fairies . ”

 

The spirits assisted the fairy species who used to live like stupid primitives . The First Spirit, who had become friends with the 3rd Fairy King, asked its future generations to help the fairies .

 

The fairies stopped being the weak ones since then .

 

‘Elementalist’, stronger than most wizards but extremely rare, was established as a common job for fairies .

 

The condition to be an Elementalist was very strict and complex .

 

A pure heart that loves nature!

 

For this reason, it was a problem too after becoming an Elementalist . Because they couldn’t mobilize spirits to take lives or destroy terrains . Elementalists became useless since it was impossible to partake in war this way .

 

But fairies were different .

 

“It wasn’t an innocent agreement, huh?”

“Yes . For the friend that always annoyed me while touching my breasts, I asked the future generations a quite unreasonable favor . Looking back now, he was a wicked friend . But if we see him from the fairies’ point of view, he was with no doubt a great king . ”

 

The spirits that the fairies summoned could be used in wars .

The fairies, that won in wars with the help of spirits, founded a country after rescuing the fairies captured in the human country, and reclaiming their stolen forests and rivers .

 

The city and villages, which were protected by a strong rampart, were constructed at a rapid pace .

 

How could timid fairies do it?

 

Of course it was the spirits’ power .

 

Just like how the human race in modern times couldn’t imagine life without ‘electricity’, without spirits, the structure of the fairies’ life would be hard pressed to function even for a day .

 

That was the problem .

 

The fairies, whose lives had gotten comfortable, started to worry about the future . Because different from electricity, spirits had ‘hearts’ .

 

“The 3rd Fairy King was someone with a really pure soul . He was a fool who innocently only loves breasts . It’s not an exaggeration to say that because such a fairy was my friend that the Fairy Kingdom could be maintained . So at some point we started to equate him with the country and call him Elfheim . ”

 

So Boss K’s name was Elfheim .

 

I just found out today .

 

Absurd: it doesn’t make sense that you didn’t know that for 20 years of your Fantasia experience…… you even met and became companions with the 3rd Fairy King .

 

But Miss Trainee Teacher, I really didn’t know, so what?

 

“The authority and power of 3rd Fairy King Elfheim, who got spirits as a powerful team in his hands, were absolute . Then, the human kingdom made a suggestion to him for a cease-fire and a marriage alliance as an apology . He accepted it happily . I can’t say there wasn’t any ulterior motive . That princess had amazing breasts . And his wife and the fairies who got upset here started a coup d’état .

“So it became like this?”

“Yes . ”

 

The first spirit was switched from being the fairy’s friend to be a captive .

 

Since then, just like the violent Fairy Princess Sylvia, the fairies started to give ‘commands’ called requests to the spirits . The fairies severely exploited the spirits to do what the spirits would hate like murder and destruction .

 

And as this kept going on for long years, the spirits who were born in future generations took it as ‘a matter of course’ to follow the fairies’ commands and all .

 

But it could be flipped over anytime .

 

The First Spirit .

 

If it got released, the spirits would get their freedom . And the fairy species who had angered the five Spirit Kings would become extinct .



 

“So that’s why that fairy was on guard . ”

 

The collapsed Fairy B was still sleeping .

 

“Yes . The mastermind that caused the coup d’état, the 3rd Fairy King’s wife, had been on the lookout for me for a really long time . She doesn’t know what happens outside . She’s someone who only takes comfort from vaguely waiting for the descendants to come here once in the hundreds years . But I didn’t know she would’ve died in vain like that……”

“What do you want to do?”

“I’ll kill all the fairies . ”

 

The first spirit explained in a composed tone of voice .

 

“I can’t get compensation for the years of my children getting exploited . It would also be too much for a free spirit to dominate the other species and be bound by revenge . Then I’ll just move according to the course of nature . The fate of turning around their extermination into survival given to the fairies by us spirits, will have to be reserved to calm my anger . ”

 

“They’re already on the verge of extinction . ”

 

The Fairy Kingdom Elfheim had been destroyed .

 

Since the South Continent that was called the fairies’ hometown had disappeared because of the 5 Disasters’ violence, realistically there were only fairies who lived in the North Continent and Central Continent left .

 

And there was only one kingdom right here .

 

Since Elfheim which used to indirectly protect the fairies scattered all over the continent had collapsed, the slave hunters would move diligently .

 

There was no need for the first spirit to step in .

 

“But Mr Hero . Before that when are you going to untangle these chains?”

 

“I never said I would though . ”

 

“Sorry?”

 

“Hmm?”

 

“……”

 

“……”

 

“Righteous Mr Hero! If you untangle these horrible chains I would assist you to handle Demon King Pedonar . I was also a Hero colleague in the past . I helped the first hero as a representative of spirits . ”

 

“… is that so?”

 

Ppyong!

 

I summoned the Holy Sword Nucleon .

 

“Mr Hero…?”

 

“Spirit Auntie . I’m sorry . I raise some fairies and mermaids in my house’s garden in the North Continent for display, Nanny loves it . She’s already depressed because I’m not there, she would be really sad if even her pets that comforted her died . ”

 

“W, wait! I don’t understand though…!”

 

“I’ll tell your friend about how you’re doing . ”

 

That you have died beautifully .

 

*

 

“It’s weird . How do they lay eggs if it isn’t a cloaca?”

 

We got out of the sewer after finishing our business .



Above ground, the fairies who got instructed by Fairy A, were repairing the destroyed buildings with the help of spirits .

 

The things that got appointed as colleagues couldn’t be seen anywhere .

 

“Uh…… Mr Hero?”

 

Lanuvel, who was following me behind, called me carefully .

 

“Hmm?”

 

“You’re really a Hero, right?”

 

“Then what am I if I’m not a Hero? How could I just release a spirit that wants to decimate the fairies which have now become an endangered species? Lanuvel . Say the solution you think is right . ”

 

“Persuasion!”

 

“Persuasion?”

 

“Yes! Persuading the First Spirit that not all fairies are bad in this world, and to wait and see while going with us on the adventure! Dissipating its grudge gradually after recruiting it as a colleague like that!”

 

Lanuvel’s plan was plausible . It might work .

 

Actually there was a successful case in the 1st round .

 

The mental illness Fairy Princess Sylvia, who detested humans so much, used to have which made her throw a fit every time she saw her human slaves, was eased as she went on an adventure .

 

Just a little bit .

 

I came to a conclusion then .

 

“A long time ago there was an aggressive fairy who acted violently to kill humans every time she saw them . There were a lot of plans and schedules which that bitch ruined because she threw a fit . She wasn’t a colleague but a lump of nuisance . Just the thought of that still makes me angry now . ”

 

“Mr Hero, you’re really 3 years old, right?”

 

“Why?”

 

“When did you see such a fairy?”

 

Lanuvel uselessly asked a sharp question .

 

“…3 years is a long period of time . Lanuvel . Give me that butt that acts cute . I’ll engrave the theory of relativity on your hip . Time doesn’t feel like it’s flying when you’re hurt . ”

 

Time didn’t go by fairly .

 

When ordinary babies took off a baby step, I built an empire after conquering the North Continent .

 

Fabrication SSS → Fabrication MAX

 

Love E → Love C

 

Hope D → Hope B

 

The skill work was going on really smoothly .

 

 Amazed: I’m also surprised . I thought that it was over by the time Student Kang Han Soo summoned the Holy Sword Nucleon with the terrifying performance .

 

Miss Trainee Teacher . Listen .

 

I’m Mr Hero with 20 years of experience!

A first spirit is also no big deal if it gets wrapped around this Mr Hero’s fingers . Hehe .
