Right now this girl is grabbing my legs while forcing me to marry her. Hell Id marry someone early in this age, I barely know her for six minutes!
”Go away! ”
”No! I never found a guy who can make a good coffee like this! Actually I do but hes married already! ”
”I said no! Get away from me you crazy woman! Come on guys help me here! ”
The group didn do anything until I ask for help, what a great friend no?
”Excuse me miss but you need to stop. ”
”MISS?? Do I look old to you!? ”
”N-no, sorry. ”
… Im screwed. ”
Suddenly the cat girl appears beside me.
”Hieek!! I-I know your dad, you can do anything to me. ”
”Oh please, he knows everything. ”
She quickly drags her.
”Im sorry, she hasn been able to find a man for years. ”
Id never go here ever again, ever.
”Please come again, even though you don want to. ”
Yep, I really don want to- wait did she just reads my mind?
Before I can say anything else, she already left. Sigh* might as well come back later.
”Wait do we need to pay? ”
”Nope, we don . ” I replied.
It doesn seems like they will come back anytime soon and theres no one else beside them, so its safe to assume that we don need to pay.
Not having to pay is good, but its pretty sad that Im unable to find the cause of this curse. Sigh* I will get my answer later I guess.
. . . . .
Edward is sitting on his throne. Infront of him are three people, one male and two females. Three of them are kneeling infront of him, until Edward opens his mouth.
”Hows the progress? ”
”They have the potential for it. ” Gerald answered.
”Good, when will it be? ”
”Two months. ”
”Two months!? We can afford another two months! If we wait longer we will be gone by that man alone. ”
”S-sorry your majesty, we can afford another failure. The best we can do is two months, and by that time the sacrifice will be on your hand. ”
”It better be, is there anything to report? ”
”Yes your majesty. ”
Emma stands up, Edward raises his brows in surprise.
”Say it. ”
”Understood. This boy named Alan, I think it would be better to turn him into a soldier rather than sacrifice. ”
”… elaborate. ”
”His fighting capability is beyond mine, if we
e able to turn him into our side, we could win against this man your majesty talks about. ”
”I see, but how? Hes aware about us already, I doubt he would go by our side. ”
”We can use his friends. ”
”That might work.. ”
They continued to talk, taking notes on how to blackmail Alan into their side. No matter how strong they are, they have atleast one weakness that everyone can abuse.
. . . . .
”Fuah! That was great! ”
Shes back to normal, well good for her. After exploring the city, we have the grasp about some stores. Alchemist sells variety of potions and herbs. Blacksmith sells you weapons and armors, you can ask for a comission too. Monster store sells you monster materials, there are some live monsters you can buy too.
There are a few buildings like the guild too, but we didn go there for a few reasons. Now that its evening, we decided to go back and take a rest.
”Are we going to check that café again? ”
”Definitely no.. thats what I wanted to say but I need to go back anyway. ”
”Is it about the curse? ” Sora asked.
”Yes, but not only that. ”
”You will see. ”
We decided to go back to the café, thankfully its still open.
e back. ”
It was the catgirl from before. Now she wears a casual clothing instead of waitress clothes.
”Yes, now explain. ”
I didn stutter there, Im serious. I really want some explanation on who this girl is. She looks exactly like Hana I know, but older.
”Yes yes Im your sister you got me. ”
”Eh? ” everyone said in unison.
”You have a sister? ”
”A little sister, supposed to be dead two years ago. ”
Due to that **ing accident, when I won the case the driver instantly sent to the worst prison for his entire life. Its a shame I can see his suffering up close, but thats more than enough for me.
”Huh? Then who is this? ”
”Kawasaki Hana, the girl whos supposed to die and now reincarnated as a cat girl! ” she said as she does the V sign.
e not my sister. ”
I turn back and decided to leave.
”Wait wait wait just kidding ok!? ”
”I don know you, so go away. ”
”Please! I will not tell anyone your search history! ”
”… I think its better for you to die. ”
”Im sorry!! ”
. . . . .
”Uh, to make this clear. You two are siblings? ” Kyoji asked in confusion.
Right now Hana is kneeling infront of me, grabbing my legs while apologizing to me.
”Yes, I don know what happened to her mind. Shes usually more docile than this.. ”
”Thats rude! ”
”… you guys are always like this? ”
Aoi shakes her head as her response.
”Oh yeah, when did you change your name? ”
”You can check my status? ”
”Of course! You need a skill for it, theres an item for it though but you don want to bring an orb everytime you fight no? ”
”Right.. anyway for your question. It was accidental, didn know a fake name would work like that. ”
Seriously how powerful this affinity could be?
”Oh yeah you haven explained to me how the hell you got reincarnated to here. ”
”No clue, oh yeah you better go back. ”
I look outside.. its already dark.
”Oh shit. Alright I will see you again tomorrow. ”
”You better be. ”
The group rushed back to the castle. If they stayed longer people would get suspicious about them, revealing their trur intention.
. . . . .
”Haah.. hah.. we made it. ”
Weirdly enough only me and Kyoji that are fine. It just a five minutes run, why are they so tired already?
”What the hell are you guys made of? ”
We look at each other before answering.
”Is it that bad? ” we said in unison.
”Sigh* muscle heads. ” Chizu replied, while Aoi nods her head to Chizus reply.
Aren you guys calling me Strategist before?
A maid approaches us from afar, it was Nim.
”Where have you gone to? Its already this late. ”
”Blame Chizu, she ate too much. ”
”Huh? Hey!! ”
Im sorry, I will somehow compensate you. I said while putting my hands on each other to apologize. (NOTE: I don know how to describe this, so think of it as praying emoji)
”Is that so? ”
”Yea she can help herself and almost ate everything in the menu- ”
”Oi. ” She glared to me.
As we try to reason Nim, the others are sighing in disappointment. Its like watching kids trying to reasons their mom.
. . . . .
”That was something. ”
Everything just happened so fast that I couldn progress anything, somehow its fun. Maybe I should relax a little.
I sit on my bad with my hands on the air, thinking about everything that just happened and process it one by one. We have gathered enough information, and found Hana for some weird reasons.
”One problem solved, one more to go.. ”
As I said that I remember something.
”Right lets see what I can do with this affinity.. ”
I tried to create a small marble out of space..
”Simple enough. ”
I can see the outline of it, not sure if anyone can. Once I touch it the marble explodes into pieces.
”Guess not. ”
Then how much MP did I drain?
Even a failed product can waste this much of MP? What if it was a perfectly condensed marble? Yeah guess I won be able to do that anytime soon.
”Hm, if space drains a lot of MP then time would drain a lot more.. ”
Using time magic basically controls the world itself, if Im able to simplify it maybe I can reduce the MP cost?
”Too much questions, next to the other one. ”
Oh how about status? I quickly open my status board.
”Lets see, what if I do this.. ”
I put my finger on my name, pouring it with some MP to change the letters into my name.
Name: [Kawasaki Haru]
It works! So I can really alter my status board.. but why I haven unlocked the skill for it? Sigh* whatever
It works! But thanks to that my MP almost reached 0. Yeah I think thats enough for now..
Laying on the bed, I slowly close my eyes..
”Lets see if I can have a good sleep tonight.
. . . . .
”Yawn* good morning. ”
Chizu walks up to the meeting room with her hand covering her mouth.
The twins are still pretty sleepy, they haven get a good sleep after they live in this world.
”Hm? Where is he? ”
The door suddenly opens, a man with jet black hair an brown eyes walks into the room.
Its been a few days since we stayed here. The more we stay the more information we get. So far our best discovery is the world map. Currently Zenrura is on the west of the continent, surrounded by water. North of this country is an unknown area, people don know whats inside it but there is a huge mountain on east of it.
To the east is a massive desert, with a country of Deraso ruling the desert. The desert is one of the most dangerous area currently, so people rarely explore it unless they want to go to Deraso.
Further to east there are 4 more countries. From top to the bottom there are, Kanila the country of demi humans, Rion the country known for their market, and lastly Dirona the country known for their best adventurers, Meron Empire currently one of the country with the most manpower. Between all of those countries there is null zone. Sadly we don have any information about it, but we don need to know about it yet.
Below Meron is a country that was deleted from the world map, like someone is trying to hide the truth and the rest 4 countries are unknown to this country.
”I think we have enough information for now. We can still dig in for more information about thid country but it might be risky. For now we will focus on training while Hana tries to uncover more stuffs for us. ”
Hana is actually a spy from a certain country, she refused to tell us about it. She said ”I will say it when the time comes. ”
Sigh* since when my sister becomes this cryptic?
”So all we have to do is train? ”
”Yes, we just need to learn the basics before we can start leveling. ”
Even though I want to gain some level, I can really complain to them. We
e trying to play as low as possible, because we have high profile it will be difficult to do so.
”Pardon my intrusion. Lord Jasmine has told me to bring you to her. She said she will begin the magic class. ” Nim said as she enters the room.
”Got it, tell her we will be there. ”
She bows to us and left the room.
”Alright get ready, I want to understand magic more. ”
. . . . .
”Good morning students! Today I will teach you the basics. Since Sora and Aoi already learn the basic, you guys can try to gain more control to your affinity. ”
They leave the room and went outside.
”Now, lets start from the basics. Magic has been in this world for centuries. We don know where it originates from but we can manifest one and use it. They consumes MP, or we call mana. Mana is something we can touch or see, but feel. We can feel the mana flow around us, even the ones inside others body. Some places have a zone rich of mana, but theres also one that has no mana in it. ”
”We call that null zone, its a zone that constantly draining every mana thats within the area. Thankfully its far from our country so we don need to worry about it. ”
”Now the main question is, how to manifest magic? Well some magic can manifest without skills but if you have one it would be easier to manifest. ”
She took out her wand, suddenly a spark of fire appears on the tip of it.
”Just imagine something that a fire has. Their size, what they need, and how they act. ”
The fire quickly vanishes.
”There are a few ways to make your magic stronger such as condensing them. Its like fitting five balls into one box that can only fit two balls, but this will cost you a much bigger MP cost. ”
”And for the rest- ”
. . . . .
The lesson last for 4 hours straight. Most of it are about how you manifest each element except for space and time.
”What a waste of time. ”
The only thing I haven know is how mana works, but thats it. Well maybe thanks to that we finally know what null zone is.
”I think I will go and train my AGI again. ”
I walked outside, trying to find the training grounds.
”Lets see.. hm? ”
”Hey Jasmine how does it go? ”
”It went perfectly! ”
It was Gerald and Jasmine, wonder what are they talking about..
”Sigh* thanks to that idiot King we need to prepare the sacrifice earlier than it should be. ”
Sacrifice? For what?
”Is he dumb or what? All he needs to do is surrender to that guy, that way he can save himself and the whole country. ”
To who? Yeah I think questioning myself won help, I better go.
I quickly walk away before the noticed me, thankfully they didn .
”Better say this to others, we will have a trip soon. ”
