Part 9: Chapter Nine: The Flower of HappinessAfter their escape from Riesevelt, Felt and company started off for the Simsilts hideout, Agito Cove. On the way, Felt saw an oddly familiar object.
Unable to do much with it, they passed on to the North Cave, the only way to reach Agito Cove.
This is the cave that leads to Agito Cove.
We must pass through it. Lets go.
Feinnes Fourth Wall Lectures: North Cave
North Cave is our first dungeon with an interesting little quirk. There are strong winds that blow here that we cant move forward against. In order to get all of the chests in here we need to go around upwind of them. Theres an alchemy recipe in here, so its worth it to explore.
Soon enough, they reached the Simsilt outpost.

Simsiltian: Has our glorious leader returned unscathed?
Yes, for the most part
And it is all thanks to Noin and uh Fes.
Thank you for saving our leader.
Fes was a great help to us out there.
You are our honored guest. Make yourself comfortable.
But for now, our story moves back to Eden.
Alright, the letters been sent.
I wonder if Felt reads all of my letters
Shes been hard at work creating powerful new items for Felt, such as the Nectar. This item can revive those who have been defeated in battle.
Felt will be delighted. This will revitalize him if hes knocked out
Hopefully, hell only have to use it on his new friends
And even more remarkable, the Item Wish, which can transform monsters into items.
Melona sent me here to ask you if you have any interesting items.
She thought you might have some
Well This Item Wish is pretty interesting.
It turns monsters into toys But there arent any monsters in Eden.
Felt is the only person I know who can even use it.
Oh well. Ill tell my boss about it and see what she says. Shes looking for new things.
As she left her workshop, she ran into Melia.

My Hal Flower just died.
Whats a Hal Flower?
Youve never heard of it? Its a very rare flower. It has such a gorgeous smell
So, thats why you smell a little different today.
Yeah, thats the Hal Flowers scent. I worked so hard to get that flower, too.
Where to they normally grow?
I found it in Marmel Forest. I found it near that Azoth sword, but there was only one.
Its so rare. Yach doesnt even have any at his store
In Marmel Forest, huh?
I doubt Ill ever find another one
Well, well never know unless we try.
I guess youre right Ill give you a reward if you find one.
Before leaving for the forest, Viese checked in with Melona.
What is it, Melona?
Not many people know this, but Ive recently started to collect rare things.
I already have quite a collection, but theres one item that I really want.
Wow, I didnt know you had any hobbies.
Yeah, well, what I really want is a Star Piece.
Can you get one for me? Please, Viese?
A Star Piece? Okay, Ill try.
Viese then went out to search for the Hal Flower, and sure enough there was an odd sprout in Azure Azoth Square.
Wait, can this be
It smells like Melia, sort of.
Can this really be a Hal Flower ?
Viese grew the flower
No wonder Melia loves it so much.
That smells so good.
Huh? Who are you ?
And also attracted some attention.
I just flew by here because it smells so wonderful.
A Fragrance Mana
You smell good, too.
I do? Its probably because of this flower.
No, I mean you smell good by yourself.
Id like to make a pact with you, if you dont already have a Fragrance Mana, that is.
You bet. I just love your smell.
This is wonderful.
Mana, the father of power the mother of life The source of all nature
I, Viese Blanchimont, have pledged to uphold the sacred tenets of Lilith.
In honor of that pledge, I have come to form a pact with Aroma, the Fragrance Mana!
I hope you always smell this great.
System Message: Received the mark of the Fragrance Mana, the [Flora Gem]!
Ill take this Hal Flower to Melia.
The flower in hand, all there was to do is give Melia the flower.
Viese, whats up?
What, that smell
Yep, here you go!
System Message: Gave away [Hal Flower]!
This is, a Hal Flower ?!
You wanted one, right?
Yes. This is a Hal Flower. I just love this smell.
Thank you, Viese. I didnt think youd be able to find one.
Please take this. Thank you so much
System Message: Received [Yellow Mana]!
Im taking this home.
Viese then managed to produce quite a different smell while synthesizing some Charcoal.
I smelled something awful, and its coming from here.
Oh, Melia Im sorry. Is it supposed to smell this bad?
Dont worry but, this does smell worse than usual.
Its as if you mixed glow stained grass and basil cheese sauce into a pumpkin pie and stirred it all together
Then left it out in the sun for 10, not wait, 11 days It smells just like that.
You really should ventilate this room. Itll be impossible to get that smell out if you dont.
Well, Ill see you around.
She was oddly specific in that description.
Ahh, I have to ventilate this room.
With Vieses tale for now complete, when next we meet we shall return to what happened after Felt reached Agito Cove.
Oh, Felt, I noticed something strange. That recipe you found in Belkhyde is almost exactly the same as the one I found in Eden, but its a little older and has some ancient writing in it. I wonder why What is the connection between Eden and Belkhyde?
