Volume 9: Rondo of Fire and Love
The Twenty-ninth Chapter
by Yura Kairi
Translation by Marfisa
The cosmos is ruled by one Queen.
I'm Angelique, a candidate for the next Queen.
Together with another Queen Candidate, Rosalia,
I'm in the middle of the Queen Examination!
The Holy Palace.
Ange- I can't believe it.
Ange- Until just yesterday, my continent was leading in population and number of buildings.
It recovered in an instant.
Rosa- If I get a little serious, this is exactly how it is.
Rosa- Honestly, you're so spineless, Angelique.
But, I wonder if it's only natural?
Since after all, I am the perfect Queen Candidate,
Rosalia De Catargena.
Rosa- A bit of trouble won't handicap me.
Rosa- The contest is just beginning, Angelique.
Ange- That's just the way I want it, Rosalia.
I have to do my best.
Ange- Let's see, the people of Elysion want the power of Light now.
That's a sense of responsibility and aspirations... I suppose.
Rosa- Oh, this is unexpected. Felicia also wants the power of Light.
Light is the power needed most by Felicia recovering the first of its strength.
Ange- Hey Rosalia, your pace today is really fast.
Rosa- Angelique, you're always slow. Is it alright to be in such a hurry?
Rosa- Be careful not to take a wrong step.
... Oh, huh?
Rosa- Oh my, as soon as I said it.
Ange- It's because you said something to make me self-conscious.
Rosa- Excuse me for going ahead.
Ange- Rosalia, you meanie!
Oscar- Are you alright, missy?
Oscar- You took a really big fall today.
The Guardian of Fire, Oscar-sama.
Oscar- Be careful. Blue bruises don't suit a maiden's white skin.
Oscar- While I'm at it, with my passionate kiss, I'll...
Ange- Don't worry,
Julious- Angelique too?
Ange- Oh, I came to request cultivation.
I'd like you to send the Sacrea of Light you preside over to Elysion.
Julious- Understood. I will send my power to Felicia and Elysion.
Ange- Yes, thank you!
Marcel- Hello, Angelique.
Marcel- Hey, what about my power?
Marcel- Is there enough power of Green on the continent?
Ange- Yes. It seems the Sacreas of Light and Wind are wanted on Elysion now.
Marcel- Tell me when you need it. I'll do my best and send power.
Marcel- Oh, but if you're looking for Randy, I don't think he's there now.
A little while ago, Zephel was trying to skip work again and Randy chased after him.
Marcel- Even I'm tired of associating with them.
Rosa- How awful. Felicia urgently needs the power of "Steel".
Rosa- Marcel-sama, where were the two of them going?
Marcel- Oh... who knows? Sorry, I can't help you.
Rosa- No. Thank you for the information, Marcel-sama.
Rosa- Well then, good day, everyone.
Ange- That's just like Rosalia, she changes so fast.
Julious- Angelique, what will you do?
Rosa- Hello, Luva-sama. I'd like to speak with you.
Olivie- Oh, why it's Rosalia.
Olivie- Recently, you've abandoned me. I can't stand the loneliness.
Doesn't Felicia want the power of Dream?
Rosa- At the moment, it seems there's plenty.
Olivie- Oh. But come visit me now and then even without cultivating.
Luva- Ah, Olivie, sorry to interrupt, but
Luva- If your business is finished, please leave.
It seems Rosalia wants to speak with me.
*Well then, I'll borrow this.*
Olivie- Oh, sorry to intrude.
Olivie- See you, Rosalia.
Luva- ... Well? What is it you want to speak with me about?
Rosa- Um... I want to request cultivation from Zephel-sama, but I don't know where he is.
I thought you might have a clue.
Luva- Is he skipping work... again?
Luva- As the person in charge of his education, it's a headache.
Luva- But then, it's no use grieving.
Ah, let's try thinking a bit, shall we?
Luva- Ah, this morning too, Zephel's eyes were red.
It looks as if he stayed up all night tinkering with some machine.
Zephel- *It seems like I'm being stubborn, but
my eyes are naturally red.*
Luva- In that case he might be taking a nap in the garden of Clavis' mansion or in an unused room
in the outer courtyard of the Holy Palace...
Ah, or he's conducting a trial run to check the result of an experiment... I suppose.
Ah, I think that's it.
Since he appeared to be in a good mood, I'm sure he had some good result.
Rosa- Then, Zephel-sama is...
Luva- He can't carry it out at the Holy Palace. And there's not the usual commotion.
First of all, it would be terrible if he were challenged by Julious.
Rosa- Zephel-sama has gone to a far-off place where no one can disturb him...?
Cultivation for today is hopeless!?
Luva- Ah, no, no. It may not seem like it, but he's the kind who wants to show off his inventions
Rosa- He's in a spacious place where people are gathered...?
The tones of a harp...
Lumiale- Why it's Angelique.
Ange- Hello, Lumiale-sama.
Lumiale- Do you have business with Clavis-sama?
Ange- Um... I'm looking for Randy-sama.
I was wondering if you might know where he is with your crystal ball...
Clavis- How many times do I have to tell you?
My crystal ball isn't something so convenient.
Ange- I'm sorry.
Lumiale- If you're looking for Randy, he was running around looking for Zephel a while ago.
Since it has become completely quiet, he's probably not around here anymore.
Clavis- Come to think of it... it seems Zephel built something strange again.
I heard that he was going to make a test flight at the park...
Ange- Then Randy-sama is at the park too?
Clavis- If he is still continuing the pursuit.
Clavis- I can tell that without relying on the crystal ball.
Ange- Thank you! I'll try going to the park.
Clavis- What is so funny?
Lumiale- No, you have good hearing...
Clavis- ... Be quiet and play.
Rosa- Angelique, what are you doing? Don't follow me! I'm going to the park.
Ange- I'm not following you. I'm going to the park too.
Rosa- What did you say!?
*I won't be beaten.*
Zephel- Well, it's finally the first flight.
Zephel- It's my super advanced bird-type special mecha, voice controlled, free flight type,
with learning ability.
Zephel- It moves in response to my voice!
Boys- *Oh. Wow.*
Zephel- Go! PX-WW(read double wing)-09.
Ange- Oh, is that
*high pitched ringing*
Ange- A new model of Mecha-Chupi!?
Ange- There he is.
Zephel- Wh... what are you doing?
Rosa- I have a request for cultivation!!
Zephel- My work is already finished for today.
Rosa- That can't be!
Zephel- I guess it can't be helped.
Zephel- Did it get broken with that yelling a while ago!?
*high pitched ringing*
Ange&Rosa- Zephel-sama you pervert!
Zephel- It wasn't my fault!
*It's beyond my control.*
Zephel- This is bad, people are bound to get hurt.
Randy- Next time make a mecha for catching Mecha-Chupi too.
Zephel- Don't call it Mecha-Chupi!
Zephel- Ugh, Randy.
Randy- I finally caught you Zephel.
Zephel- We have to stop it somehow. Now's not the time for that.
Randy- Oh, you have a point there.
Randy- If it's alright to do something a little drastic...
Zephel- Can you really shoot it down with that?
Randy- I may not necessarily succeed...
Even though it's a mecha, this is the first time I've aimed at a bird.
Randy- ... I'm sorry.
Man- He hit it!
Boy- It fell.
Zephel- It took you long enough.
Zephel- ... Thanks for the help.
Rosa- Oh, Zephel-sama, wait!
Zephel- Don't have any weird worries. I'm going to fix it right away and fly it.
Randy- ... He ran away again.
Randy- Angelique, what about you?
Do you have some business with Zephel too
Ange- I was looking for you, Randy-sama. I'm glad to see you!
Ange- Yes, I request cultivation!
This is the Flying City.
A research facility where the Queen Examination is being conducted.
From here, we build up the continent on the surface of the planet.
Borrowing the power of the nine Guardians.
