The frigid mountain wind caressed the girl’s dress.
But it was unable to relief her sweltering body.
Lily felt that she had already gained enough experience and power-up through this expedition. It was about time to hand in the examination task, so she decided to climb down the mountain and return to Takeshita.
However, this journey wasn’t going to be easy. Her body felt really hot, even though she didn’t engage in combat or did any excessive exercise, she was sweating non-stop.
That intoxicating feeling from absorbing too many animas was unable to be quelled.
Lily’s footstep became more and more unsteady as she walked.
Her head felt dizzy.
“Un… W-What is happening to me?”
She unsteadily walked towards a big tree and lied down with her back leaning against the tree. She couldn’t help pulling apart her collar and skirt to let some of her body heat dissipate. However, it didn’t seem to help at all…
“Ah—!” Lily let out an involuntary cry. Just like that time when she absorbed the true essences of the surrounding plants, she passed out again.
It would seem that every time she used the ancient runes, her consciousness would feel faint. It was her good fortune that she lasted until now. If she was to faint much earlier, she might already be gone from this world. As a matter of course, fainting in the middle of a high tension battle wasn’t very likely to happen. But once she loosened up, the impulse would hit her all at once.
However, Lily was still in quite a precarious state. For a beautiful woman to lie down at the roadside of the mountain woods, her fate would be unthinkable regardless of whoever passed by, be it a samurai or a monster. Perhaps they might be faced with a disaster if they woke Lily up, but what about the moments before she did?
What if she was found by Akira’s group?
Lily was naturally worried about that. She did try to resist, but just as the sudden outburst of the mysterious power from earlier, fainting was not something she could stop with willpower alone…
Lily fainted with a blushed face and rapid, shallow breathing. Even while asleep, her face remained as red as a blossoming flower, and she seemed to be muttering something. The excess heat and rapid breathing could spell danger to her body, or perhaps she might be caught in the maelstrom of lust.
At this hour, the moon was in full view.
The bright moonlight filtered through the gaps between the trees as they shone upon Lily’s chest and blushed face. Those moonlight gradually twisted and wrapped around Lily’s body like silky threads. They slipped into her clothing and rounded up the beads of sweat. Her flushed body was being wiped by what appeared to be the softest handkerchief in the world. It was as though her heated body was being baptized by the moon…
Slowly but surely… Lily’s complexion turned back to its natural color. Although there was still a little bit of natural blush remaining, her body was no longer burning up. Her body temperature returned to the norm, even her breathing had gradually returned to normal. Her sleeping face looked much peaceful than before. The sexually arousing state she was in had been pacified by the silky moonlight…
Lily naturally didn’t know this, but from now on, even though her body would still heat up as a consequence of using the ancient runes, even though she would still be affected by her inner devil and succumb to unhealthy desires, she would no longer faint. It was unable to cause physical harm to her body any more.

As luck would have it, a group of people just happened to pass by after some time had passed. It hadn’t even been long enough for Lily’s body odor to spread around.
“Hmph! We actually didn’t run into a Mountain Imp colony even after spending two nights in the open. We only encountered a group of ten Mountain Imps, and even let three of them escape! But at least we have killed quite a few other monsters on the way,” Saionji Nanako let out a complaint on her horse.
“Young lady, it is quite a feat to be able to collect seven Mountain Imp animas in two days! There are so many quasi-samurais out there unable to complete their task even after entering the mountain for half a month!” The old retainer, Taihara Yukimichi, praised Nanako.
“Alright, alright, I get it already. I’m just afraid that getting number one in the combat examination will be very hard with this amount… Ah… so sleepy. That’s it! I haven’t taken a bath for two days already. Let’s go back, take a bath, and sleep!” It seemed as though Nanako would lie on the horse’s neck and sleep just like that. She then muttered to herself, “I wonder if that big-breasted woman has completed the test already or not. She wouldn’t be devoured by the Mountain Imp already would she…”
“Huh?” Nanako vaguely located what seemed to be a girl in white clothes lying against a roadside tree ahead.
Nanako’s sleepiness faded away all at once. ‘Why would there be a girl lying down at this kind of place? Could it be a monster?’
The others had already discovered the suspicious figure. They approached the white-clothed girl on high alert and slowly surrounded her. A few foot soldiers pointed their long spear at her and used the lantern to light up the area…
“Ahhh!” Nanako vigilantly approached on horseback to check out the situation. As the figure of the sleeping girl registered in her eyes, she immediately let out a cry, “Big breasted woman!”
