Yggdrasil Story: In an old castle
Six-years-war has ended, by the strength of only one man.
Everyone calls him "Swordmaster".
Unfortunately, this is not the story of such time of glory, bloodshed and.....
Ruby, interrupting: Sola, why don't you just tell them that this is the story of a man in a harem full of beautiful flower girls.
Almond: Could you not disturb her? This is the most important part of our story, and it could decide the future of us all.
Ruby: And I want to ask you why the novel cover doesn't have me on it? Since I'm the main heroine and all.
Sola: I am so fed up with pen tool.. uh... better not talk about it. So, we used a photo of flowers instead, and I think you are not the main heroine.
Almond: It's a budget cost too. Those artists charge us over US$200. We are broke. Plain and simple.
Ruby: That's really expensive, huh.
Sola: Could you girls stop talking? So, I can continue with the synopsis....
Ruby: I don't understand why this is so important.
Sola: Ruby, listen. If we don't have a good synopsis, people will not buy our book, and then.....
Iris: Then what? I want to know it too.
Sola: Then there will be no book 2.
Iris: No book 2, so what? Why should I care?
Sola: Our universe will collapse, and we will disappear forever..
Iris: What did you say?
Almond: Well, too late now. You talked too much. We have run out of writing space...
Ruby: What!!!!!NO!!! I don't want to DIE!!!!You do something sis!!! I should have done that human thing with our lord when I still had a chance. Noooooooo......
Iris: Buy it now. People!! Yes, I mean, you!! YES! YOU!!! BUUUUUUUUUYYYYYYYYYY....
Iris is shouting as loud as if this is the last moment of her life, but no one listens.
Chapter 1: In an Old Castle
Yellow girl: Violet, bring Peony here. Our lord is awake. She must be very happy to know this.
Very soon several girls fill up the room. One is a yellow-haired girl with white-yellow dress and a big sunflower on her head. Another one wears princess-like pink dress, with blonde wavy hair and a lot of peony flowers on the back side of her head where her ponytail could have been.
Lord, talking to the pink girl: Who are you?
The pink girl turns her face away angrily.
Lord, talking to the yellow girl: What is this place? Where am I?
Yellow girl: What? My lord, are you telling me you don't remember us?
Purple girl: This is not your joke again right? You always make grim joke like this.
Lord: Oh really, did I?
Yellow girl : I think it could be real. He even said before his long slumber that he might not remember us when he woke up. Weren't you also there when he said it?
Purple girl: Oh I start to remember now. Forgive me. It has been one full year. By the way, my name is Violet, my lord.
Lord: One year? I was sleeping for that long? Tell me everything else I need to know. I don't remember a thing.
Yellow girl: My name is Sola. I am one of the maidens born to serve you. My body and soul belong to you alone. You are a king of this castle and the creator of all of us. We are born from flowers and are bound to serve you by yggdrasil's blessing, which is a magic from the yggdrasil tree that give birth to all of us maidens.
Sola: You should ask Peony, she is the first-born and the eldest maiden. Eh? where is she?
Grey-haired girl: She is gone, Sola. She seemed to be angry about something.
Violet: I'm not sure why she is not here, my lord. I often see her fell asleep on your bedside while you were sleeping. You can surely talk to her later.
Sola: Anyway, it seems you are still drowsy. You can take a nap, my lord. We won't bother you anymore. But this time please don't sleep for too long. [giggle]
Peony with a little tear in her eyes, hugging a goat doll and mumbling to herself.
Peony: Why can't you remember me and our beautiful time in the past? Everything I did, I did it for you. I have been waiting for your compliment for so long, but no, when you wake up, you....[crying...]
Violet, knocking on the door and shouts pass it: Peony, we are going to hunt some hog in the forest for our lord, will you go with us?
Peony: No, have fun for me.
Peony continues to cry.
Sola: Oh! you wake up so soon, unlike last time [giggle] We are preparing some human food for you.
Violet: We are going hog hunting. You used to love roasted hog, right?
Lord: Hmm...is it dangerous out there? May I go too?
Sola: Now it's not as dangerous as it used to be, especially not with the whole lot of us around you.
Violet: Let go with us and become familiar with the surrounding, my lord. This is your castle after all.
