Aqua and Chris were sent to the realm accidentally. They were supposed to investigate a way back to the original world from the village. However, flattered by the priest, Aqua followed him to the temple and was brought to the hideout of the priest when she noticed it was a set up.
Luckily, Chris had already smell a rat in advance, so she infiltrated into the base and saved her in time. Aqua, who despised the priest’s deception, swore to reveal his true face. Therefore, both of them were expecting to dig out some important faces in the hideout.
Chris: The priest has earned the trust of the villagers. If you want them to believe us, you need a convincing evidence.
Chris: First, let's find out other followers who were caught here.
Aqua: Oh, of course, I have the same thought. You just spilled it out. Okay, let’s go chase our target.
Chris: Hey, there are some demons left in this cave. Be quiet and careful ok? I don’t want to get spotted.
Then, both of them were on the alert for investigating the cave. Benefiting from the skills of Chris, they bypassed the demons and headed for the deep of the place. Finally, the trapped followers were found. They were overjoyed when Chris released them from the prison.
Chris: Shush! Footsteps——
Aqua: No worries, leave the demons to me. I’ll beat them up.
Aqua: Ahhh——! They’re too many...Save-save me please, Chris!
Chris: Phew, finally. Thanks to Aqua distracting the demons’ attention, otherwise it wouldn’t have been an easy fight. Hey...are you okay?
Aqua: Boohoo...they kept chasing me while sneezing. So scary...as if I’m surrounded by a bunch of freaks…
Chris: Never mind. Look, they’re all tied up——
Villager: Hold on! Are they the demons who attacked us a while ago!?
Chris: What’s going on exactly? We need to dig out some more——
Aqua: Are you an idiot? Why don’t you just ask them?
Chris: ...You’re right. We can ask one by one.
Chris and Aqua used various means to open demons’ mouth. Soon, they could not bear the interrogation, begging for their mercy.
Demons: We’re commanded by the priest to attack this city! Achoo! The priest is actually with our Illuminated Savant, Achoo!
Chris: So he is an accomplice, but why?
Demons: Who knows! Achoo! Our Savant hates humans. I don’t know why he’s working with the priest! Achoo!
Demons: You, stay away from me! I keep sneezing whenever you get closer, Achoo!
Chris: That’s why the priest has been covering his nose with his sleeve...Ohhh——!
Aqua: What? Is it turning you on? I’ve told you. Don’t get too close with Darkness okay?
Next day morning, villagers all gathered at the square in prayer as usual, listening to the priest in praise of the gods. Then, each of them went up to the stage one by one to receive his blessings.
Priest: May you have a wonderful day. Next!...Why do you cover your face?
???: Sorry...I have a rash. It’s better not to show it.
Priest: Poor child, may the blessing of god be upon——Ah! Youuuuuu!! Why’re you hugging me!? Achoo!
???: Chris is right. You’re actually a demon!
At this moment, a high wind blew away that villager’s mask——It was Aqua! She was performing a joint lock against the priest, like a mixed martial arts fighter.
Priest: Let go of me, Achoo! Humph, take this!
The priest grabbed Aqua’s ankles, swung his arms and spinned his body to gain momentum. Then, he carried the momentum through to the release, throwing Aqua away like a disc——
Chris: Are you two done!? This is not a sport show!
Aqua: Wooahhh! I’m not giving up! Let me reveal your true identity! Sacred——
Aqua balanced her body in the air and circulated magic power. A few magic circles were glittering in the sky; rays of light started covering her body.
Aqua: Spell Break!
Iridescent colors poured down in torrents. The priest immediately conjured an elemental shield as a defense, but it was crushed by the impact instantly. The magic energy broke the shield and went straight towards him, raising a cloud of dust.
Chris, who was hiding at the corner, managed to catch Aqua falling from the sky in the nick of time. As the dust faded, the villagers noticed that the priest was gone...To be exact, he had turned into another look.
Villager: What’s going on?
Chris: He is actually a demon, who kidnapped the villagers disguising as a priest. Look! They can prove it!
Chris pointed at the followers who were trapped in the hideout; all of them nodded. This fact has shocked everyone at the square. They simply could not believe this to be true.
Chris: Your conspiracy doesn’t work anymore. Submit yourself!
Withered Savant: Can’t believe you know my true identity…
Aqua: What——!! Chris, why his face is changed...Who did this?
Chris: Um...You did it. Your magic has removed his disguise.
Aqua: Oh, of-of course, I know. I just want to test you, haha, hahaha…
Withered Savant: The village has no use for me. Time to move on, Illuminated Savant!
Quick footsteps were coming. Troops of demons rushed into the square from all directions. At the same time, a man, with a fancy dress, came over.
Illuminated Savant: I told you. These two girls have unusual power. Look, how embarrassed you are.
Withered Savant: I’m just toying with them. It’s good to see you here. Let’s take down these two and destroy the village.
Aqua: Sacred Highness Exorcism!
At their commands, the demons attacked Aqua instantly. Recalling the painful time when she was trapped in the cage, she was all out unleashing a devastating blow, which took down all the enemies in a short while.
Illuminated Savant and Withered Savant successfully dodged the attack. Both of them had a face off with Chris and Aqua.
Chris: Your underlings are all down. Surrender yourself.
Aqua: Hohoho, weaklings! Trash! Now you see the truth power of the goddess.
Withered Savant: Hey, you’re defeated by that girl too! I’m not the only one to blame.
Illuminated Savant: So, my guess is correct. That blue-haired girl could restrain demons’ power. However, what if…?
Illuminated Savant took out a whistle and blowed it gently, but it did not make any sound.
Aqua: Is he an idiot? Hahaha, he must be too frightened.
Chris: “We’ve gained the upper hand, but why there is no shred of fear on their faces...I have a bad feeling about this.”
Her intuition was right. Next second, a dozen of bulldogs were putting in a sprint. Their target was on Aqua.
Aqua: Hey, wait wait wait! This violates the rules! How can you insult a goddess with the dogs? Gods will punish you!
Illuminated Savant: Looks like she can’t even beat a dog. Her power only works when dealing with demons.
Chris: Aqua, stop talking!
Chris carried Aqua to dodge the dog attacks agilely while using her thief skills. They found a safe place temporarily by climbing up a tree nearby——
Aqua: Chris, I think the dogs are biting the trunk now. Sooner or later it will fall. What can we do?
Chris: Yeah...I don’t know...Wait, I have an idea!
To avoid the chase of the dogs, Chris climbed up the tree with Aqua, but obviously, they were not going to give up easily. The dogs kept biting the trunk ferociously. Sooner or later it would fall. In the face of this desperate situation, Aqua let out a scream!
Aqua: You cunning demons! Look at your faces! Full of disgusting mucus!
Aqua: Do you think you can defeat me by just standing there and watching? You’re as useless as the demon weaklings!
Aqua: Ahhh! You crazy dogs! I almost got bitten! Hey losers! If you have the guts, come over here and fight with me like a man——!
Aqua used all of her strength to shout aloud non-stop. At first, Illuminated Savant and Withered Savant were calm, but soon they found her voice annoying.
Withered Savant: That girl is so noisy…
Illuminated Savant: Yes indeed...My head hurts...I’ve had enough! They can’t really do anything on the tree. Why don’t we go there and finish them earlier?
After reaching an agreement, both of them headed towards the tree. When they were one step away from it, someone jumped down——It was Chris! She leaped over Illuminated Savant leveraging on the momentum and reached out her right arm.
Illuminated Savant: My...my whistle is gone!
Chris activated the thief skill to take the whistle away successfully. When she was about to land on the ground, she blew that whistle hard. Then, the dogs turned around and ran away to the outside of the village.
Aqua: Humph, without the dogs, it’s my showtime now.
Chris: ...Is this my personal story or not...well never mind then.
Aqua: Sacred Turn Undead!
Illuminated Savant: Wheeze...I underestimate the power of this girl…
Withered Savant: I really want to take her back for our experiment, but it’s a matter of life or death now. Let’s retreat.
Aqua: I-I’m not going to let you escape...I…!
Chris: Your energy is used up after all these magics. Even if you catch up on them, you have no power to fight.
Villager: Bravo! You two defeated the cruel demons!
Villager: Goddess! They must be the reincarnation of goddess!
Villager: Let’s kneel down!
Aqua: Hahaha, right, I’m the goddess of water. Show your respect and kneel before me!
Chris: Her stamina has recovered...Anyways, the things are all done.
Afterwards, Chris and Aqua accepted an invitation of the villagers who held a banquet in honour of them. Overjoyed, Aqua began to perform her signature arts——party skill!
Villager: Outstanding! I didn’t expect to see this beautiful demonstration. Did you learn it for us?
Villager: Of course she is.
Chris: The fact is...she picks this skill simply because she likes it...Uh...clearly no one is listening…
Chris: Aqua, it’s time to get back to our own business——
Aqua: No. This world is wonderful. Everyone is worshipping me, treating me as a goddess, giving me their offerings.
Aqua: I don’t need to worry about my living anymore.
Chris: You can’t——
Villager: Come here. This is our baked lamb chops. Take a bite.
Facing their warm welcome, Chris was unable to resist and settled down in this place. Soon, Aqua set up an Axis Order in the town. She was reluctant to go back to her world…
