“Hello! Teacher Teto.”

Sponsored Content

“Oh, you’re here.
Princess.”

The day came when I decided to receive my education as an official magic tower trainee.

I arrived at Teto’s lab with Merket.

Originally, it was said that the trainees of Magic tower live here while receiving the food, clothing and shelter provided by the Magic tower.

However, I was an exception, as I was too young and of high status, so we agreed to visit the Magic tower at least twice a week for training.

It seemed that Cardin used his power, but since there was no physical evidence, it was just a guess.

Cardin said that he had urgent work to do today, he attached Elvin as my escort, and headed to the central palace leaving with regretful eyes.

“Princess.
I will be here then.
If anything happens, call me.”

“Yes!”

The magic tower was a place where the entry of ordinary nobles was strictly restricted.

Normally, Elvin had to wait outside the tower, but in the name of my escort, he was able to come all the way to Teto’s lab.

After giving Elvin my greetings, we entered Teto’s lab.

“You seem to like Merket.”

[Hey.
It’s been a while since I’ve been here, it’s nice!]

“Haha, yes.”

Teacher Teto saw Merket in my hand and smiled proudly.

When he found out that I was going to the tower this morning, he asked me to take him too as he was bored.

I quietly put Merket on the desk on the side.

I was afraid of the repercussions if I left it at home, so I brought him out to find out about his curse.

“Today, we will practice applying the very basic magic power method to actual objects.”

“How?”

“With this.”

What Teto pulled out was a kokeshi doll about the length of my forearm.

It was elaborately made so that each joint could move like a real person.

“The material for this kokeshi is wood, which is particularly sensitive to magic.
I made this because I thought it would be better to use this to learn how to use magic on its own.”

“Wow.
Did you make this yourself?”

“It doesn’t matter.”

Despite his modest reply, Teacher Teto smiled softly, scratching her cheek as if he was embarrassed by my fussy compliments.

[Whew.
He must have stayed in the lab without eating to make that one.]

A small growl was heard.

With a blunt tone of voice, the stems moved and the flower buds were dancing from side to side.

“Did you make it without taking a break?”

“Yeah? How did you…”

‘It seems that Merket’ swords were true.’

I looked at Teacher Teto, who opened his eyes wide in surprise, and pointed her finger at Merket.

“He told me.”

“Haha, that’s right.
That’s a really smart Merket.”

As if my words were just a child’s pure prank, Teacher Teto gave her a no-nonsense response.

[Hahahha.
Only you can hear my voice.]

“Then I’ll give you a demonstration first.”

“Yep.”

Ignoring Merket’s smirk, I focused on Teacher Teto in front of me.

Having placed the kokeshi on the desk, Teacher Teto reached out toward her doll and maintained its posture.

Soon, the kokeshi moved and came to stand on two legs on the ground like a real person.

“Wow, the doll really moves!”

“Spread your energy where you want to move and focus.
Once you have mastered it, you will be able to control it freely at will.”

“Oh.”

The doll, standing on two legs, was repeating the posture of jumping or sitting down.

It was quite strange to see each joint move freely as if it were really alive.

“You try it this time, Princess.”

Teacher Teto placed the kokeshi on the desk where I was sitting.

“Open your eyes wide and focus on where you want to move.
It’s like giving it power.”

“Well….”

As Teto had told me, I opened my eyes wide and glared at the doll’s legs.

‘Move, move, move…’

[Oh, it moves.
in action!]

“Where?”

[…… fingertip?]

“……”

It didn’t matter if Mer’s words were true or not.
This is because the place where I concentrated my energy was not on my fingers, but on the puppet’s legs.

It was also my first time, so I still haven’t gotten the hang of it.

As she groaned and wandered, Teacher Teto, who was watching over her, gave her a little help.

“At first, it is difficult for everyone.
So how about trying this?”

“What?”

Teacher Teto asked me to close my eyes and think of a large bundle of yarn.

When the picture was perfectly drawn, he told me to slowly release the threads from my body and connect it to the doll as if I am controlling it.

I closed my eyes and think a bunch of threads.
Soon, I saw black threads, gathered together, gradually materialized.

At that moment, I opened my eyes wide and stared at the droopy doll in front of me.

Move, move, move…

The doll’s legs wobbled a little.

I concentrated my mind again and gathered the mana on the doll’s leg.

I felt some foreign power in my body.
I wonder if this was my mana that revolves inside me.

“Hey!”

bang!!

“……”

“……”

[Ouch.]

I succeeded in moving the doll.

Yes, it moved once.
Can this be called a success?

Is it because I concentrated my energy with the feeling of squeezing out all my power?

In an instant, I felt the unfamiliar power inside my body drain away.

Shortly after feeling the joy of success, the doll’s leg bizarrely bent and jumped up using the floor as a support.

I looked up at the ceiling.
The figure of a doll with its neck pierced through the ceiling was seen hanging pitifully.

“Haha… You’ve succeeded.
Princess!”

“Success… Are you sure?”

I never meant to break the ceiling.

I apologized to Teacher Teto for breaking the ceiling.

Rather, the kind teacher, Teto, praised me, saying that it was great that I let out my magic so much that it pierced the ceiling.

After that, I tried to carefully control the doll again, but I failed every time.

I stopped trying after drilling five identical holes in the ceiling.

Teacher Teto lent me a kokeshi doll and gave me a task to make it walk until the next time she comes to the tower. 

I vowed to succeed by taking these failures as nourishment.

“Then, Princess.
See you next time.”

“Yes.
Good bye.”

I nodded my head and said goodbye to Teacher Teto and went out of the lab.

With Merket, still smiling, in one hand and a limp kokeshi doll in the other, I approached Elvin.

Elvin held up the heavy-looking kokeshi and asked how was today’s class.

I did not mention that I had drilled five holes in the ceiling.
I just smiled and said it was okay.

“Oh, I want to go to the Imperial Palace library for a moment.”

“In the library? All right.”

I got on the carriage with Elvin and exited the tower.

Just before leaving the palace, I remembered Fay, who took a nap in the library of the Imperial Palace.

I wanted to see the face of the first friend I had made again, and next time, I wanted to formally invite him to our house and play.

As soon as I saw the library through the window, I felt excited and shook my feet.

“I’ll drop you off.
Princess.”

“Yes!”

The Imperial Palace Library was an unchangingly magnificent and beautiful building.

The interior of the library harmonizes with a quiet atmosphere, making people feel at ease.

“Elvin.
I’ll go over there for a bit!”

The thought of being able to see my friend after a long time I hastily made my steps to the magic-related library.

I heard Elvin’s low voice asking to go with me from the back. 

Soon, a familiar magic related library appeared. 

“What…?”

Following her memories, she arrived at the place where she and Fay first met, but only books were lying there and no one was looking at them.

You said that if I come here, I will be able to see you.
I guess today is not a good day.

“Princess.
Are you looking for something?”

“Ahm, my friend.”

“Your friend?”

“Yes.
I have a friend I met here, but he is not here today.”

Seeing the gloomy expression on my face, Elvin wanted to think about something for a moment, then he asked me to wait for a moment and then he disappeared.

I waited for Elvin and looked at the books lying on her table.

[Please Read this only at moonlightnovels.com]

“What kind of books are these?”

Looking at books that have the talent to make people hate to open them just by looking at their titles, I thought that Fay was very unique.

“Princess.”

“Oh! Elvin.
Where have you been?”

Then, Elvin, who had disappeared somewhere, appeared behind me.

“I borrowed these from a librarian for a while.”

“Paper and pen?”

“I thought it would be good to leave a message to that friend of yours.”

“Oh, that’s a good idea!”

I should have just moved on like this, but I thought that if I left a letter, you would know I came.

I couldn’t contact him because I only knew his name and face, but I promised myself that I would ask him exactly the next time we met.

I took the paper and pen from Elvin and slowly started writing down.

“Hello, Fay.”

These days, she wrote in the letter that she was being trained by Teacher Teto at the tower, that she had to practice with a kokeshi, and that she would like to see him again.

Lastly, I thought about whether to write the phrase “Come to the Duke of Bardion,” but then I thought he might feel a bit of a burden, so I put the pen down at this point.

“Did you write it all?”

“Yes.
Let’s go.”

Now that I have to visit the tower regularly, I can stop by the library every time.
Then we can meet again someday.

I folded the letter a couple of times and laid it lightly on the top of the book.

I left the library with Elvin, hoping Fay would read the letter.
