*rustle*

Olivie- Well, Rosalia has come back to us.

Olivie- Aren't you going to quit now?

Olivie- You two Nightmares.

[132]
Olivie- Taking advantage of a person's weakness, you plant the seeds of discord and confusion.

One false step and it would have been a disaster that could have destroyed a planet.

Olivie- I see your other tricks.
It's a cowardly method.

Olivie- I'm not going to let petty demons who can't exist without being a parasite on a person's
dreams do whatever they want any more.

[133]
*chuckling*
Nightmare- YOU'RE FORGETTING.
THIS IS HER DREAM LAND.
YOU ARE THE ONLY PRISONERS.
THE SACREAS OF WATER, FIRE, AND DREAM.

YOU'RE TRAPPED,
YOU CAN'T RUN.

Nightmare- WE'VE GOT YOU.

ONE, TWO,
THREE POWERS.

LIKE MOTHS TO A FLAME.

Nightmare- AND THE TWO CANDIDATES FOR THE NEXT QUEEN.

[134]
ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS WAIT.

*crack*

THE QUEEN'S POWER WILL EXCEED ITS LIMIT.

[135]
*hahaha
ahahahaha*

THE COSMOS WILL BE DESTROYED.

[136]
Olivie- I won't let that happen!

Nightmare- NOW, I'LL SHOW YOU TO THE LABYRINTH OF DARK SLEEP.

*whoosh*

Ange&Rosa- Kyaaa!

[137]
Olivie- Angelique, Rosalia!

Damn!

Ange- Olivie-sama.

... Dark.
Darkness in which I can't see anything.

[138]
I can't perceive anything but the sensation of my own body.
My naked self without any adornment is bared.

I'm ashamed of myself.
I promised I would protect those girls.

*gasp*
Olivie- I have to be careful...
*Heh*

In the dark, if I don't keep a firm grip on myself, I'll be trapped by thoughts and lose sight of
my sanity.
Like I'm wandering inside a deep dark forest.

Olivie- The worst is inclined to get steadily worse.
Besides, I don't have time to be lost in contemplation now.

[139]
... Sacrea of Dream...
Show me the way.

*glimmer*

Light...

*flutter*

A bird of light!?

Queen- Did you call me?

[140]
Queen- Guardian of Dream, Olivie.
Your Sacrea is a part of mine.

Your Majesty!!

Olivie- I... I am unworthy of such an honor.

*heart pounding*

[141]
Queen- Follow the divine bird.

*flutter*

*gasp*

Queen- That bird will fly towards the light.

Olivie- Thank you, Your Majesty!

*footstep*

Queen- Olivie.
I entrust the Queen Candidates to you.

[142]
*shrieking*

*sizzle*

*rustling*

*crackling*

[143]
Lumiale- Plunging into the Nightmares' world living body and all,
you really are a rash person.

Lumiale- Oscar.

[144]
Lumiale- Here is your sword.
The sword of Fire with the Sacrea of Light.

Lumiale- Wicked people must not have been able to touch it.
It seems it was left as it was.
This sword should give you strength.

Lumiale- I need your strength.

[145]
*glow*

*gasp*

*flutter*

[146]
*flutter*

Lumiale- Olivie!

Olivie- Lumiale!

[147]
*smack*

Olivie- Do you know how worried everyone was?

Lumiale- Olivie...

Olivie- Why did you not consult anyone and work alone?
What are we here for?

Lumiale- ... I'm sorry.

Lumiale- I never expected that there was a Nightmare hiding in her heart...

[148]
Olivie- Honestly... I don't understand how sometimes you're either modest or full of confidence.

Lumiale- ...... I wanted to understand that girl's pain.

Lumiale- My words of encouragement and sympathy don't reach her deeply bound heart.

Lumiale- Her frozen heart rejects everything and all I could do was watch over her.

Olivie- I know. It's no use no matter how much water you pour on the cold frozen land of winter.

Olivie- Oh well. Right now, finding Rosalia and Angelique is our priority. Geez, where is
that Oscar?

*clench*

Lumiale- Um... Olivie.

[149]
Olivie- ?

Olivie- .........

Olivie- Well... what a pitiful sight you are. The Guardian of Fire in ice, it's not even a joke.

Lumiale- Because he plunged into the dense spiritual world as flesh and blood, he probably
wasn't able to cope.
It must have put a considerable load on him spiritually.

Lumiale- But now, that's a blessing. The bioenergy of a living body is strong enough to destroy
this world.
It's a little dangerous, but since even Angelique has come to this world, we can't hesitate.

Olivie- *Hmm.*

*clench*

*clinking*

Olivie- Well then, I'll have him wake up.

[150]
Olivie- I've never used such a heavy sword, so I don't know if I'll miss my aim!!

Olivie- Get up! Oscar!!

*stab*

[151]
*cracking*

Oscar- I would rather have been awakened by a lady's kiss.

[152]
*roaring*

So dark...

Rosalia.
Olivie-sama.

[153]
*floating*

Light...?

Queen- Queen Candidate.

Your Majesty?

[154]
Queen- I too was once a Queen Candidate.

*fluttering*

*gasp*

Queen- That girl might have been another me.
She might have been you.

*rustling*

Mother- You really have such beautiful hair. I love brushing your hair.

Nightmare- Me too, I love it too, mother.

[155]
Man- She can be a daughter of the high nobility.
This way, this child can happy too.

No. I don't want to go.

Father. Mother.

Mother- Take care...

Man- Our clan turns out many Queen Candidates and Queen Cadets.

I want to go home.
I want to go home.

Man- Do your best and become an excellent Queen Candidate.
We're aiming for the Queen's throne.

[156]
Nightmare- Do your best, do your best...
What's the use?

You are fortunate. You were born with Sacrea.
But it's a shame. It seems there will be no Queen Alternation in our generation.

Nightmare- I was brought to this place arbitrarily...

If I can't become Queen, you don't need me, do you?

Take me home!!

What a daughter. Trying to sneak out of the mansion.

Man- We gave both your parents more than enough money. From now on, even if you went home you
would only be a bother.

[157]
*bang*

I don't care. I don't care.

It's not my fault that I was born with the Queen's Sacrea, nor that I can't become Queen.

No more. No more. No more.

Help me... somebody!!

[158]
*hiss*

YOU.

YOU...

Nightmare- YOU CALLED ME, DIDN'T YOU.

Nightmare- Who are you?

[159]
AT LAST I'VE MET YOU.

Nightmare- WHAT IS YOUR DESIRE?

Nightmare- ... This world should cease to exist.
I hate the Queen...

Nightmare- AS YOU DESIRE.

[160]
Ange- No!!

*crackle*

Ange- Kya!

Queen- She is imprisoned in a gloomy darkness anyone might fall into.

[161]
Queen- I want you to help that girl.
As a selfsame Queen Candidate.

*clinking*

Ange- Your Majesty.
