t it would be fine.

At that sight, Beiryl turned more and more into a monster.

On the day of the duel.
In front of Marquis bell, two Sword Masters crossed their swords.

It was a rainy day.

The next day, Beiryl disappeared from Apton.

Marquis Bell knew where he was going, but he didn’t tell his daughter.

Two years have passed since then.

Count Welton turned into a full-fledged Sword Master and married Sears.

And at the same time, news spread about Beiryl.

He became a full-fledged Sword Master too, and avenged the three families who wiped out the Onyx family.

Only bad news came after that.

“And this is the first time we meet after that.”

Sears finished the story.

She smiled and patted Jamie’s head.

“You must have been curious about it?”


Jamie smiled instead of answering.

However, unlike the smile, he was shocked.

‘This kind of relationship?’

So that was why Beiryl had a bitter expression on his face.

Thinking about it now, that expression seemed to be of a sinner seeking atonement.
But Jamie wasn’t sure.

Apart from that, he actually didn’t expect Sears to tell him about it in such detail.

Since he was still young, he thought she would cut the story short.

‘He lost to my father.’

They duelled before they became Sword Masters.

Count Welton won the duel.

Hearing that, he thought that his father was cool.
On the other hand, he felt bad for Beiryl.

Because there was no salvation for him.

‘It is all karma.’

The things he did to Sears were unforgivable.

Since he entered the path of madness, there was no way it would have been a proper duel.

“Any more questions?”

this is all.”

“Thank god.”

Saying that, Sears sipped her tea and looked at a distant mountain.

The person who was so close was now distant, anyone would be upset.

But she never said it out loud.

A moment of silence.

“Venna, ah-”


On the grass, Sarah and Venna were playing.

Venna shook her head not liking it, but the squirrel couldn’t speak, so she endured it.

-Master! Soil! Soil! I can’t eat soil and dirt!

Round lump of soil.

How did Sarah make it round?

That isn’t an edible thing, right?”

At Jamie’s question, Sarah blinked her eyes and looked at her brother.

Then she looked at the lump of dirt in her hand.

“Can’t eat this?”

“… throw it away.”

Sarah pondered for a moment, and then threw it away.

“My younger sister is so good.”


“Jamie is turning into a good brother?”

“I-I have always been a good brother.”

As Jamie coughed up in embarrassment, Venna thanked him.

-Thank you, Master!

For Venna to thank him, she must have been scared as hell.

Jamie looked sadly at Venna and then looked back at his mother.

“But, mother.”

“Something else you want to ask?”

“What is Mirinae Forest?”

“How did my son come to know that?”

“The aide told me not to go there because it was dangerous.”

Sarah narrowed her eyes and asked Jamie.

“Did you go outside?”

“N-No way!”

“Then why would the aide say that?”

“Ju-just out of caution.

Despite that excuse, Sarah didn’t buy it.

“Don’t even think of going out alone, okay? No matter how talented a magician you are, you are still a child, and you can never know where the danger is lurking.
Do you get it?”

“I’ll keep that in mind.”

“More than that, that forest.
I haven’t heard its name in a long time.”

Sears knew about it.

Thinking for a moment, she suddenly stood up and hugged Jamie.


“See that?”

She pointed to a place full of trees.

“I see it.”

“That is the Mirinae forest.”

Closer than he thought.

He didn’t think that it would be just ahead.

“Is it dangerous?”

“Jamie, do you know of the 6 banned places of the word?”

“I read about that somewhere in a book.”

“Beyond that is the forbidden area, the Ariazad Great Forest.
No, let me rephrase it.
Mirinae is a part of Ariazad.”

Ariazad Great Forest.

One of the 6 banned places.

It was infested with dangerous monsters, but fortunately, the monsters never came out of the forest.

Because of the monsters in it, the place was never invaded.
Thus, humans were ignorant of what was inside it.

In the past, a team led by a Sword Master was sent, but only the Sword Master barely managed to come back alive.

“Mirinae is a part of that great forest, but weaker monsters who can’t survive in the forest, sometimes head over to Mirinae.”

That was why it was called the ‘loser’s realm’.

“I’ll keep that in mind.”

Jamie smiled and nodded, making Sears feel relieved.

“My son is a good boy, so I guess he will listen to his mother.”


Not a chance.

He definitely planned on going there.

‘Because the dark forest that Pyro spoke of is right here.’

She said Jamie had to go in there and solve the problems of Apton.

Jamie got out of Sears’ arms and looked at the Mirinae forest.

‘I should head there tonight.’

As he was about to turn around, he suddenly remembered the place written in Canon’s diary.


“Huh? What did you say?”


“Look at her.”

Sears looked at Sarah.

Jamie gulped and looked at the forest.

‘It couldn’t be.’

Garmon was said to be northwest of the Mayatrey mountains.

Is Gamron…’

The 6th banned place?

However, entering Ariazad with his current skills was suicide.

‘For now, I will focus on what I can do.’

Just knowing the location of Garmon was an achievement.

The corners of his lips curled into a smile.

As he felt like he took a step closer to his goal.

And the night came.
