Teacher caught up in class summoning, repairs mechanical girl with unorthodox skills C36: Nachtigal, Queen of the Night
From now on this will be the regular release time.
It’s been a few days since Kutone decided to accompany me. She had seriously reported her absence from school and was preparing for the trip. Moreover, she borrowed a number of heavy magic books from school.
“Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm. I get it now.”
“Sage, when you’re done with that, let’s go outside the town.”
“Hmm? Are you going to collect herbs again?”
“I’ll teach you a magic that even Sage can use.”
“I’ve borrowed a lightning-elemental magic book from the school, so let’s try some magic that even Sage can use. Oh, you finally succeeded?”
“Yes, yes, I’m concentrating while doing the dishes.”
I was now able to concentrate magic power in 2 of my fingers.
We headed to the Adventurer’s Guild to pick up the carriage and then went straight out of town.
We parked the carriage on a plain with a good view, a little off the road. Kutone and I were a little away from the carriage, Brunnhilde was watching, and Stallion the horse was munching on some weeds.
Kutone twirled her long staff.
“First, let’s start with earth, which is a common attribute between me and Sage.”
“Yes, teacher Kutone.”
“Teacher sounds nice. As the name suggests, the earth attribute is a magic that interferes with the earth. In other words, as long as you have soil, you can use it anywhere.”
“I see. I can’t use it indoors.”
“It is easy to activate the spell. All you have to do is understand the chanting, put in the magic power, and release it.”
“Oh, that’s it?”
“Yes. Then, let’s try the rudiments of the earth attribute, the stone pebble. I’ll show you how to do it.”
Kutone lined up beside me and looked forward. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a rock that looked like a good place to sit. Kutone pointed her staff at the rock.
“Let the gravel of the earth fly. Stone Bullet ”
A yellow magic circle unfolded at the tip of Kutone’s staff, from which a stone shaped like a pickle shot out and hit the rock. If I took a hit like that, I’d have more than just broken bones.
“It looks like this. The size of the stone changes depending on the amount of magic you put into it. The chanting spell is ‘Let the gravel of the earth fly’, Stone Bullet. It’s just like that.”
I stuck out my right hand and got fired up. I’m going to do the first magic……of my life.
“Let the gravel of the earth fly!”
A pebble no bigger than three centimeters appeared from the magic circle and fell without even flying a meter. It was worse than a child throwing a stone.
“Well, that’s pretty good for your first time.”
“No way. What was this?”
“You know, it’s a big deal that it worked. I’ve never seen anyone activate a spell on their first chant before.”
I then tried Stone Bullet a few times, but the results were all the same.
“The trick is to imagine releasing the magic, not just chanting it, but releasing it while chanting.”
This is it. This is the image of releasing qigong from my hands that I did for no reason when I was a child. Whenever my hands would go numb or I would feel a sharp pain for no reason, I would put all my energy into it because I felt like I could perform qigong. That’s what I’m talking about. I can do it. I can fly. Stone Bullet!
“Phew…….Let the gravel of the earth fly, Stone Bullet!”
The result was the same…..damn it.
Lightning magic seemed to be difficult to advise, even for Kutone. She spoke with a magic book in one hand.
“The lightning attribute is mostly attack magic. Let’s see, the most rudimentary magic is……”Lightning Strike”. It’s a spell that drops a small amount of lightning on a designated point.”
“How do you use it?”
“The chant is ‘Fall down, purple lightning, Lightning Strike’…….”
I concentrated as I was told and held my hand up to the target, a rock. My whole body felt numb. Numb like my legs after sitting on the floor. Okay, I can do it!
“Fall down, purple lightning, Lightning Strike!”
A purple magic circle appeared just above the rock, and I could see a tiny moment of luminescence in the static-like sound. Maybe it was activated, but it was nowhere near the……Stone Bullet.
“Oh, there it is.”
“Isn’t that static electricity?”
“It worked, it’s just not very good.”
“What do you want me to say?”
“Haha. Now that we know that the spell works, all you have to do is practice until your magic power runs out!”
“Okay, I’ll do it.”
The spell was cast. In other words……I used magic. I was so excited by this fact that I took turns activating the spells until my magic power ran out. Kutone was guiding me, while Brunnhilde was stroking Stallion and massaging her with a comb.
I noticed that it was long past noon.
My magic power had run out, and I was exhausted.
I sat down near the carriage and gulped down a glass of fruit water that Brunnhilde offered me. The cold, sweet, citrusy liquid soaks into my body……It’s delicious.
“Sage, you’re doing pretty well for a first timer.”
“Now all you have to do is practice every day!”
“Yeah, I’m going to try to become a G-class magician.”
“That’s the spirit!………Huh? What’s that?”
It was then that I saw five carriages running along the street. Two carriages in the front, a gorgeously decorated carriage in the middle, and two carriages running in the rear. No matter how I look at it, they are escorting the carriage in the middle.
“The crest of the Magicalize Kingdom is engraved on the middle carriage!”
“Is that so? That means the Chancellor returned from the Fauve Kingdom.”
It seems that Chancellor Nachtigal is safe and sound and has returned from the Beastman Kingdom. The day when Lucia will arrange a meeting with her is near. Okay, I’ll put together a list of questions to ask tonight.
At night, while I was relaxing after having dinner at Kutone’s house, there was a knock at the door. When I opened the door, I found Lucia in her normal clothes.
“Excuse me for disturbing you at this hour, Sage.”
“Lucia, what are you doing here so late at night?……Oh, yes, I didn’t thank you for the carriage. Thank you so much.”
“Can I come in? Actually, I’m not alone.”
“Hmm? Oh, is someone there?”
Behind Lucia, there was a person whose face and body were completely covered by a robe. I can’t even tell if it’s a man or a woman because I can’t see the face. At any rate, I let her into the house and offered her a seat.
“Hmm? Sage, who are you talking to……?”
“Lucia………is the leader of the Order, isn’t she?”
“Sorry to disturb you at this time of night, Brünnhilde.”
Kutone, who had been lying on the table covered with dirt, got up and wiped her drool with her sleeve. That’s dirty.
Brunnhilde went to the kitchen and started preparing tea. This is another one of those “human-like behaviors” that Brunnhilde has learned. More importantly, there’s something that’s bothering me.
“Lucia, how are you?”
“………I said we could do it at a later date, but she said today.”
Then the person raised the hood.
“Uh, well, that’s the thing.”
I was amazed at how beautiful she was, Kutone blew up as if she had lost her mind, and Lucia giggled as she scratched her cheeks.
The woman was probably in her late twenties. She had a well-defined contour, black hair that looked like it could appear in a shampoo commercial, beautiful emerald green eyes, and her facial parts were so perfectly arranged that it was almost impossible to tell. She looked like a princess in a story, but also had the air of a queen.
“Let me introduce you to the Queen of Magicalize and Chancellor of the Magic Academy, Lady Nachtigal.”
“Sorry to bother you at this time of night. I really wanted to talk to you today.”
No way, it was Chancellor Nachtigal.
Chancellor Nachtigal’s visit had left Kutone lifeless, and Brunnhilde was serving tea without any change. Even I’m surprised because I was going to put together a list of questions tonight, but then she came here.
Lucia said apologetically.
“Chancellor Nachtigal has just returned, but as soon as she saw the report I gave her, she tried to come here…….It was impossible to stop her.”
“Lucia, you sound like a child.”
“Chancellor, let’s finish our conversation and return to the castle. I’ll consider this as saving us the trouble of an audience today.”
“Mmm, I can’t help it.”
I wonder what that means.
I don’t know what to think. Even though I don’t know about her style, her face is my favorite.
“I can tell by your face what you’re thinking. Chancellor Nachtigal is over ninety years old.”
“Lucia! How dare you reveal the age of a maiden!”
“I’m sorry. Let’s talk.”
She’s 90 years old and looks like this? Ugh, no way, it must be a lie…….Is that ridiculously thick makeup?
“Enough. Let’s just get this over with. First, let’s talk about the Ostrode Kingdom.”
Finally, she got to the point.
