The open compluvium focused the lights of stars, which penetrated through the city to the deepest part of the city. The wall of mirrors was reflecting the light downwards so that it finally fell on the magnificent altar, which was situated bottom of Ceraphis, the place closest to Tulzscha in the city. There, they offered elves of light elements as sacrifices to the dragon.
Heretic Priest: The distorted order
Heretics: are the unavoidable wobble
Silver Twilight Adherent: that happens when the scales are taken away!
Heretic Priest: The dirt in the realm of men
Heretics: must be rejected by the holy flame!
Heretic Priest: We now offer these live as sacrifices.
Heretics: May the Elder Gods govern the world again.
Dagger Wielder: Darn... you shameless humans!
Dagger Wielder: How dare they do this behind Eostre’s back!
Dagger Wielder: Incarnation of the ethereal stars,
Dagger Wielder: Can you really drive away Gods and Demons from the realm of men?
Mirror fragments were scattered all over the place. A group of God Warriors encircled the heretics before an altar, on which stood the Court of Libra, who was covered with the glints of stars.
Court of Libra - Luna: Do you really know what you are doing?
Heretic Priest: Freaking Gods!
Heretic Priest: Even if you stopped our rituals,
Heretic Priest: you cannot stop the Elder God from coming back to life.
Court of Libra - Luna: Do you think everything will run that smoothly?
Court of Libra - Luna: You are just rejecting the present, but you don’t have the power to change it,
Court of Libra - Luna: so you see what you have now as the only way out.
Court of Libra - Luna: But aren’t there various combinations of stars?
Court of Libra - Luna: Just look beyond the present. In the past, I was—
Numerous pillars of lights rose from the round and hit the soldiers of Gods hard. the Court of Libra evaded the pillars swiftly, but was trapped by strange tentacles which appeared from nowhere.
Court of Libra - Luna: You—
Silver Twilight Adherent: Take the chance to summon the Elder God!
Court of Libra - Luna: If that is your wish, then I shall grant it for you.
Court of Libra - Luna: Come, smash the scales of Libra and create your own order for the world!
Honor the Dragon Follower: Get out of my way! I have nothing to do with you for ages now.
Heretic Priest: Chosen Dragon Follower! You are the dragon fang of the Elder God.
Silver Twilight Adherent: Please stay with us, the claws and the scales,
Silver Twilight Adherent: to search for the light of the Holy Temple!
Agatha the Dragon Maiden: Honor, where are you?
Honor the Dragon Follower: Agatha, I’m here!
Honor the Dragon Follower: You jerks! Remove the barrier now!
The Pawn of Light: You were different from her, Dragon Follower. Just go with us!
Honor the Dragon Follower: I don’t care about what you want.
Honor the Dragon Follower: If you’re still standing in my way, I won’t be responsible for what I’m going to do!
The Pawn of Light: Stop rejecting your father, Dragon Follower. Return to him!
Honor the Dragon Follower: Darn! You made me do this!
Honor the Dragon Follower: You are making me break my promise to Agatha—
‘The sun shines on all. Its light was warm and satisfying. The light extended on the horizon boundlessly until the energy was evenly spread...’^ Who said all these? The heretics could not remember no matter how hard they tried. All they knew was that these words were the reason which guided them into the belief of light.^ In the red-hot flare of light, the Dragon Follower raised the Sword of Dracospirits to summon the holy flame, which engulfed all of the heretics.
The Pawn of Light: See, this is the power! This is the temperature of the holy flame—
The pain of burning was instant. The heretics fearlessly turned into ashes in the flame brought about by the Sword of Dracospirits. The summoned Light Ethereal Dragon also disintegrated into a golden holy flame, which broke through the barrier and surged into his sword, and then entered the body of the dragon follower, reaching the innermost part of him—
Tulzscha was observing the world. Every Light Ethereal Dragons was his eyes and ears. He could see everything with the eyes of its incarnations, feel the objects engulfed by the holy flame, and understood the wishes of those who sacrificed...
But Tulzscha was just observing, it had not done anything voluntarily. It had neither purposes, nor any desires. The intake of light elements was achieved by breathing and no longer required any efforts. Tulzscha felt the elements within its body. When the power was sufficient, it would execute its plan of which every step was recorded inside its body, at somewhere deeper than its consciousness.
The Delusive Incarnation: Incarnation of the only holy lord, please forgive me!
The Delusive Incarnation: I can only see you with my avatar.
The Delusive Incarnation: After all, you don’t dream.
The Delusive Incarnation: Come on. Remember the runes that you left!
The Delusive Incarnation: ‘You are the light’
Tulzscha the Radiant Overseer: I am the glamorous glint——
Tulzscha spoke to itself. That was the first time it spoke. The elements told him that its companions had all awakened and they had to begin their work. Tulzscha sensed the elements of light in its body and listened to the voice of Dracospirits. One of them was calling for someone who was named Agatha.
Tulzscha the Radiant Overseer: He didn’t call for me.
The voices were mingled with many small noises. The wishes of people were just so little that Tulzscha did not plan to answer to them.
Tulzscha the Radiant Overseer: I am shining through the timestream...
Tulzscha thought that it was not yet the moment. Although its companions had already started their work, it still did not want to pour down the holy flame. The current situation did not require new orders. It still had to wait, but it would keep sending Dracospirits to reply to requests and destroy the Gods and Demons that it disliked. It would only wake up when the realm of men was chaotic enough, and then—
Tulzscha the Radiant Overseer: The land shall be purified by the eternal light.
