Teacher caught up in class summoning, repairs mechanical girl with unorthodox skills C35: The Unopened Door and Kutone’s Decision
The door did not open at all. No matter how many times I touched it and concentrated, it beeped “ERROR” and would not open.
I’ve never seen anything like this before. If it’s been repaired, it should open. And it’s got power, so all the problems are cleared…….No way, is there any other condition besides this?
“Hey Brünnhilde, is there a hidden door?”
“………There was nothing suspicious about the passage up to this point.”
“Then why doesn’t it open?”
I touched the door all over, but all I got was a beep.
I’m curious to see what’s in here…….Okay, last resort.
“Brünnhilde, can you break this door……?”
“Impossible. This space has been jammed in such a way that it interferes with some of my functions. It is impossible for me to deploy my main weapon here.”
“Mmm……so there are conditions after all.”
I touched every part of the screen and activated my cheat, but it was just an error and a lot of noise. After all, do I need a condition to open it? Or do I need some kind of key? Damn it, I’ve come all this way, but there’s nothing I can do.
“………Huh, no choice. I’ll give up.”
“We’ve come so far…….”
Finally, I lightly slammed the door.
As expected, the door did not open.
We decided to leave the ruins and head back to town. I don’t know how to put this, but I can’t deny that it was a waste of time. I was so excited to go to the ruins after getting a horse and a cart, but it turned out to be just a casual trip.
There is something important lying there. I’ll have to go back, I had a feeling.
I thought about it as I sipped fruit water on the coachman’s seat.
“I’m done with the ruins survey, now I just need Chancellor Nachtigal to come back and Lucia to set up a meeting…….”
In the meantime, I should get ready for my trip, or gather some information.
First, I should gather information about the Kingdom of Fauve. It would be better to ask Chancellor Nachtigal about this. After all, Chancellor Nachtigal went there.
It’s just a rumor, but I can check to see if there’s a ring-bearer who’s been captured, and I might even be able to confirm if it’s Mikazuki. If it’s her I’ll get her back no matter what.
I may not have the power, but Brunnhilde does. If Mikazuki is being treated unfairly, I don’t know what kind of orders I’ll give to Brunnhilde.
And then there were the students. They were summoned to the Ostrode Kingdom to take classes and train their bodies. To be frank, there is a high possibility that they are brainwashed. They’re being raised as weapons in the Ostrode Kingdom…….Damn, what a mess.
I’m not sure if I can help the students.
“I thought of a name.”
“Hmm. Oh……the horse’s name. What name?”
“I’m going to name her Stallion. It’s a name I came up with by piecing together bits and pieces of letters from my memory.”
“Oh……Stallion. That’s a good name.”
“Thank you, Sensei.”
Brünnhilde named the horse, Stallion. Let’s leave the care of this black horse to Brunnhilde.
“What’s the matter, sensei?”
This horse was a female…….
After returning to the Magicalize Kingdom, I wanted to go back to Kutone’s house, but I couldn’t park my carriage at Kutone’s house along the alley, so I decided to park it at the stables of the Adventurer’s Guild. Incidentally, it costs money, but I had no choice.
I finished shopping for dinner and ate lunch at a food stall. After returning home, I decided to clean the house.
“Brunnhilde, take care of the bath.”
“Don’t break anything by using too much force, okay?”
“By the way, the shower head was not working properly. Can you fix it……?”
“And be thorough with any dirt or places you notice.”
So let’s start cleaning. I’m going to clean the kitchen and living room. I polish the sink and cooktop, scrub the table and chairs, sweep the living room floor, wipe the windows, and clean the toilet.
After that, it was time to clean upstairs. I finish cleaning my room, and then I clean the room where Brunnhilde is waiting. I cleaned a lot…….I’m tired.
“Oh, it’s evening already.”
“I’m home…….the house is shining!”
As I was wiping down the hallway, Kutone came home. I go downstairs and see Kutone in her uniform, scurrying around the living room.
“Oh! Sage, the house is spotless!”
“Welcome back, Kutone. You’ve been good to me. At least I can clean the house.”
“Oh……! Sage, have you cleaned my room?”
No, I can’t just walk into a girl’s room without permission.”
“Of course not! I’m so hungry. Sage let’s have dinner!……and, what? Where’s Brünnhilde?”
“Oh, speaking of……”
It’s been a long time since I asked her to clean the bathroom. Or rather, I was so engrossed in cleaning that I forgot all about her. I went to the bathroom with Kutone and……….
“”…………”” (both Seiji and Kutone are speechless)
“Thank you for your hard work, Sensei. Welcome back, Kutone.”
“I’m back…….What are you doing, Brunnhilde?”
The bathroom was ridiculously shiny. The original bathroom was old, with chipped tiles, a cracked bathtub, and a bad shower, but the cracks had been repaired and the shower head was new and the tiles have been re-tiled.
“Um, Brunnhilde……where are these tiles and the other materials from?”
“I bought the entire set of materials at the tool store.”
“Sensei, the bathroom restoration is complete.”
Apparently, Brünnhilde misunderstood the meaning of “thoroughly fix the dirt and places that bothered her”. In other words, aside from the “dirt,” she seems to have thoroughly fixed the “places that bothered her”. Before I knew it, she went out and did some shopping…….I was wrong to say that.
This maintenance has turned 278 gold coins into 253 gold coins…….
I cooked and the three of us had a nice dinner together. Now we were chatting over after-dinner tea and dessert.
“Oh, so you got a carriage?”
“Yes. Also, Lucia is arranging a meeting with Chancellor Nachtigal.”
“Oh, that’s great, a meeting with Chancellor Nachtigal——Why do you want to meet with the Chancellor, Sage?”
“I just wanted to report the results of the ruins investigation.”
“So you’ve made some new discoveries?”
“That sounds interesting. Tell me about it.”
We are talking casually, but my right index finger is concentrated with magical power. I’ve gotten used to this concentration of magic power. Kutone is also looking at it with satisfaction.
“The basics of magic power manipulation are good. Well, even a child can do it with just one finger and some practice.”
“I’d like to teach you some simple magic soon, but earth and lightning are difficult. And since the earth attribute interferes with the earth, as the name implies, it can’t be used in the city, and since I can’t use the lightning attribute, I can’t teach very complicated magic. Besides, I have school, so I don’t have time to teach you.”
For some reason, Kutone fell silent and stared at me and Brunnhilde. Then she started giggling.
“Sage, you’re my first disciple, so I’ll teach you well.”
“Haha——go easy on me.”
That’s right, I have to tell Kutone.
I hugged Silica, who was at my feet.
“Kutone, we’re thinking of leaving after we finish our business with Chancellor Nachtigal.”
“Yeah, that’s right, Sage is an adventurer, so where to next?”
“Probably the Fauve Kingdom.”
“Whoa, that’s dirty.”
The tea in Kutone’s mouth blew out like a high pressure washer, hitting me and Silica.
Silica ran away and dashed upstairs. I looked at Kutone with a fierce look, but she didn’t care.
“Sage, are you stupid⁉ Do you know what kind of place the Fauve Kingdom is?”
“No, I don’t know——”
“Unlike the Magicalize Kingdom, the Fauve Kingdom has a slavery system. Moreover, it only deals with humans——To put it bluntly, the Fauve Kingdom is hell for humans.”
“Chancellor Nachtigal is negotiating with a country like that. I think you’re overreacting——-”
“——Are they so cornered by the Ostrode Kingdom that they have no other recourse? In any case, Sage, that is not a place to go for sightseeing. If you’re going to go there, you might as well go to the Desert Kingdom, which is ruled by Fanoor, King of the Grottoes——”
“I’m going to change my mind depending on what Chancellor Nachtigal has to say.”
Kutone pushes up his glasses to look at me.
“What is really your purpose———Sage? I don’t understand why you’re investigating the ruins and Chancellor Nachtigal.”
“——haha, you know, adventurers are like that, right?”
“——I really don’t have a choice.”
Kutone stood up and raised his glasses quickly. Then she put her hands on her hips and thrust her fingers in front of my eyes.
“I’ve decided that I’ll accompany Sage on your journey.”
“What?——What are you talking about?”
“I’m an elite D grade magician, although I’m not very experienced in the field, but I can use some powerful magic and I have a——trump card.”
Kutone spoke at once, and finally showed her right hand. By the way, Kutone also has a ring.
“What about school?”
“I’m taking a leave of absence from school. I didn’t tell you this, but I’m a special student who skipped a grade. I figured that taking a year or two off from school wouldn’t be a problem, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get some experience as a sorcerer out there.”
I ask Brünnhilde, who sits in her chair and doesn’t move a muscle.
“What do you think, Brunnhilde?”
“I’ll follow your decision.”
Personally, I’m against it. As a teacher, I want children to go to school, and above all, I don’t want to fight. But I also feel that it would be a great help if Kutone, who knows what’s going on in this world, were to accompany me.
“Sage, the Master’s words are absolute.”
“Okay, now let’s get ready for the journey, Silica, Silica!”
Kutone called Silica and retreated to her room. Oh dear——
