267. Country of Sakura, Cherin and Seven Holy Swords 
Bacchus-san suddenly wanted to fight Zeon.
「W-Why would you do such a dangerous thing?!」
Fighting that guy head-on sounds like nothing more than suicide.
「Like I told you yesterday. My nature is to compare swordsmanship with any first-rate swordsman that I encounter. It’s as simple as that. Even a swordsman like you calls it a “monster”. Hearing that just sends a rush of adrenaline through my body!」
「I, I see…」
Apparently, he is an unparalleled battle junky, following his love of alcohol and women.
「But, how are you going to fight a spirit core in the first place?」
Zeon is a spirit core, and has no real body in the real world.
Is there even a way to fight such a guy?
(No, there is one actually.)
If I surrender my body to Zeon, Bacchus-san’s wish will come true.
(But that’s the one thing I absolutely can’t do!)
I’m not sure how it works, but…
The stronger I get, the stronger he grows in tandem.
(Even during the time when I couldn’t use darkness yet, he overpowered Sid-san. And even before I manifested my soul dress, he trampled over Fu and Dodriel easily.)
Now that I have learned to freely control darkness, and have manifested my soul dress… I wonder what will happen if he takes over my body?
Most likely, Zeon can bring out more powerful darkness than ever before, and rain down destruction as he pleases.
(In the worst case scenario, Cherin itself might collapse. No, if that was all that happens, it might still be a good outcome.)
Chills ran down my spine as such terrifying thoughts crossed my mind.
「Bararara! Since ancient times, there has only been one way to fight the spirit core safely. I will go into your world of the soul, kid!」
「Y-You can do that?」
Certainly, in that place, although there is mental damage, there is no physical damage.
(But can someone else step into another person’s world of the soul?)
Those worries ended being needless.
「Barabara! For people like me who have reached the point “beyond soul dress”, it is a mere child’s play!」
「…Beyond soul dress?」
Speaking of which.
I think Clown-san said the same thing before.
「You haven’t learned about the “true soul dress”, huh.」
「True soul dress?」
「That’s right. A swordsman, who has innate talent in soul dress, eventually arrives at the true soul dress. Well, you’re still very young. Right now, it’s the time for you to strengthen the foundation which is soul dress first.」

「I-Is that so?」
I feel like I understand, but don’t at the same time.
Anyway, I understood that I was still at the basic stage of soul dress, and still had a lot of growth to go through.
「Getting back to the topic at hand… Just a little! Just a little bit! Won’t you let me face off against your spirit core, kid?」
Bacchus-san put his hands together and asked desperately.
Sentimentally, I felt it was very difficult to refuse because he had just taught me Sakura Blossom One-Sword Style.
「Haa… I understand.」
「Oh, yes. Thank you, kid!」
His eyes gleamed like a child, as he smiled broadly.
「But please be really careful, okay? My spirit core has a really rough temper. If you feel threatened, please don’t push yourself, and step back immediately, okay?」
In the world of the soul, there is no physical damage.
However if you die over there, you’ll suffer pretty intense mental damage.
(According to Rose, Bacchus-san is already over 200 years old, and his body is ravaged by an incurable disease.)
If such a person suffered intense mental damage…
I don’t even want to think too much about it, but I have to warn him just in case.
「Alright, I promise! If I feel danger, I’ll return to the real world right away!」
Bacchus-san said, nodding.
「So… How do you get into my world of soul?」
「We’re going to thinly connect each other’s spiritual power. Well, I’ll take care of all the difficult things. You don’t have to do anything in particular and just relax, kid.」
Then he put his hand on my right shoulder.
「I’ll intrude into your world for a bit.」
After that, Bacchus-san closed his eyes and trespassed into the world of the soul ruled by Zeon.
