The sky is a verdant blue.
The clouds flowed like the calm rivers below.
The ancient mountains were wrapped by thin fog in the distance.
The gentle wind caressed everything it touched.
In that endless sky, the rays of sunlight that permeated the cloud made them take on an iridescent glow that soothed the soul.
As the remnant lights hit the rivers and seas below, the gentle breeze told everyone that it was great to be outdoors today.
Sometimes, a dark cloud would block the sunlight. But, the sun still did its best to give the dark cloud a golden glow.
Despite the great weather outside, two ladies toiled away inside the room of a certain house.
They had been busy the whole morning since waking up.
Wu Yan felt a bit helpless. The two were in aprons as they cleaned up the entire place.
"Jeez, cut it out already."
"If you can grumble, you can grab something and help out!"
Mikoto wiped away the sweat on her forehead as she told off Wu Yan.
"Can't you see we're very busy!"
"We're almost done."
"Finally, the clean-up is almost finished."
"Like I asked, why? Why do we have to clean again?"
"The universe will go into a stasis so it's not like the room will become dusty when we come back. Why are we cleaning this place?"
"But, we lived here for 2 months, we should clean this place up or it will feel like we have loose strings."
"If we return, we're staying here again, right?"
"Won't it feel good to see this place spick and span when we come back?"
"So you say but..."
He grabbed his head.
"You cleaned this house three times over, right?"
Hinagiku and Mikoto exchanged awkward looks.
"Did we clean that many times?"
"Alright, take a guess, how many times did you clean this place 'once'?"
"You woke me up at 5 in the morning and cleaned my room, and put my blanket out for sunlight when it's not yet bright. Then, when the sun miraculously dried the blanket, another one took it for another round of washing and drying, I counted at least 8 times, explain that."
Mikoto scratched the back of her head.
"I vaguely remembered that..."
"What's the big deal..."
Hinagiku puffed her cheeks before turning her head the other way.
"We felt a connection to this house, what's so bad about that?"
Hinagiku and Mikoto didn't want to leave the life they had behind.
Although they fought in the Mirror World during midnights, met and fought Rin & co, fought Kuro, and fought Bazett, they still enjoyed the life they had.
In Silvaria, the two never got a break or returned to the modern Earth-life they had since Silvaria is a sword-and-magic world.
Wu Yan, Hinagiku, and Mikoto fought together against the obstacles they encountered like when they first started out way back then.
It's understandable why they couldn't let this nostalgic life go.
Hinagiku and Mikoto were also happy to meet Rin & co.
With the base in the Grand Beast Forest finished the Isekai Metropolis became their home, along with the thousands of Sisters they brought back from Toaru No Majutsu's universe.
If no accidents transpire, they should be able to live relatively peacefully in the Isekai Metropolis. They just needed to become stronger in order to preserve that peace.
Yes, they needed absolute power to safeguard their happiness and the place they call home.
Hinagiku and Mikoto cast mellow looks in Wu Yan's direction.
Wu Yan had been busting his backs going between Silvaria and transcript worlds in order to steadily build up his power and strength.
Now, he is busy clearing missions in the Path of Demigod Quest to become the peak of Demigod.
He wanted to reach the zenith of power in Silvaria.
Then, once he has enough points to buy S-rank Equipment that can emit God's Power then he can harness that energy and reach his Godhood.
If he became a god, nobody can threaten them in the godless Silvaria.
Hinagiku and Mikoto silently promised that they wouldn't stray too far behind the man they chose.
"There is no endless banquet."
Wu Yan sighed as if he read their minds.
"We have to move on..."
Hinagiku and Mikoto reluctantly put down the cleaning tools.
"By the way, are you not saying goodbye to the kids?"
"Won't they feel abandoned if they knew you left without a word?"
He felt a bit helpless.
"I won't leave for long, not from their point of view anyway..."
"This is cute in its own way."
"Why don't you summon them to Silvaria?"
"No, I will continue onto the next round of the Demigod's Path."
He shook his head.
"If I did that, it would be like throwing them in a world full of strangers..."
"The time dilation meant that you won't leave them long but still..."
"Yeah, that's why we will talk about this after I finish the Demigod's Path and reach the top of Demigod's power."
"Before that, we must be apart, even for just a second."
"How about Rin and Luvia?"
Hinagiku glanced at him.
"Not going to bid them goodbye?"
Wu Yan hesitated for a second but shook his head anyway.
"I already said all I needed to say. Rather than make them feel sad, it's best if we meet them the next time."
Mikoto raised an eyebrow.
"Is this your way of saying you're going to summon them?"
"At least, not everyone."
"What was that?"
He looked at the two ladies.
"Well, let's go."
The two ladies nodded as the trio vanished without a trace.
