Chapter 205

205 . Children's privilege

 

 

 It was necessary to give a communication item to Lyle Gewalt but . . . . . .

 

 we decided to visit the mana crystal of earth and darkness while we were at Shinju town .

 

 

 It's for Mai-san and Hilda to visit the temples .

 

「Mana crystal of Earth? What's that?」

「Well, it something like a huge jewel which you can acquire magic by touching .  Mai-san . 」

 

「It's also something very convenient, huh .

 What kind of things can Earth magic do?」

「Aya and I frequently use it as support when standing firmly, kicking the ground or running . 」

「I see! That's good . 」

 

「However, the problem is that the admission fee is quite expensive . 」

「How much?」

「4, 500 Aurum . 」

 

「4, 500 Aurum!?」

 

 It wasn't Mai-san who was surprised when hearing the price but Hilda .

 Well, it was understandable since Mai-san didn't know how much the value of Aurum was .

 

 

「Seiji-onii-chan!

 S-, Since I don't use Earth magic, I don't have to go . 」

「N?  There's no need to hold back, you know?

 You've been properly studying, right?」

 

「Y-, Yes but . . . . . . 」

 

***

 

 I calmed Hilda who has been freaking out when she heard the amount of money,

 and we went to the『Earth temple』 .

 

 

「Excuse me, these two would like to visit please . 」

「Yes yes, that would be 20 Aurum for two people . 」

 

「N!? 20 Aurum??

 Isn't it 4, 500 Aurum per person?」

 

「Oh, that's the adult rate .

 Children of 10 years or younger are 10 Aurum .

 The redhead child over there is a little older but . . . . . .

 Well, you should be 10 years old so the discount is fine . 」

 

 That's quite suitable .

 

 

「I'm 19 years old!」

 

 Oh, Mai-san . If you say that!

 

 

「Haha . If ojou-san wants to become big,

 eat a lot and play a lot, okay~ . 」

 

 It seemed to have been taken as a child's joke .

 Sorry, Mai-san .

 

 After paying 20 Aurum,

 the sullen Mai-san and the relieved Hilda

 went inside and visit the mana crystal of earth .

 

----------

 

 After a while, the two people came out .

 

「How was it you two?」

 

「It was amazing . . . . . . 」

 

 Mai-san has become unusually excited .

 

「The magic(?) around the big jewel flew about . 」

 

 So it looks like that when you can see magic, huh!

 

「How was it when you touch the mana crystal?

 Was there any reaction?」

「Un .

 Some magic . . . . . .

 entered inside my body forcibly . . . . . .

 and it burst inside my body . 」

 

 Her speaking style almost has substance . . . . . .

 

「How about you, Hilda?」

「I'm not sure . 」

 

「Well then, I'll try to use【appraisal】 . 」

「Yes . 」

 

 When I appraised Hilda, the earth magic was level 1 .

 Well, it's only natural since she has been studying diligently .

 

 

「Can I use【Appraisal】on you as well, Mai-san?」

「A-, Ah, it's fine .

 I'll just endure . . . . . . 」

 

 Is endurance necessary when being【appraised】? . . . . . .

 

 

 When I took her at her word and used【appraisal】,

 Mai-san had acquired level 2 earth magic .

 

 But, Mai-san fidgeted and blushed all the time when she was being【appraised】 .

 It seemed to be kinda naughty . . . . .

 

 

「It seems you two managed to acquire it . 」

「Yay!!」

「Pheww . 」

 

 Both of them somehow managed to acquire earth magic,

 then, they will also visit the mana crystal of darkness next .

 

 

 However . . . . . .

 

 the both of them didn't manage to acquire the【darkness magic】 .

 

 

 Hilda looks extremely sorry .

 

「Well, neither Aya nor Elena was able to acquire too .

 Darkness is the only one we don't understand the condition of the acquisition well~ . 」

 

「When I touched the darkness mana crystal, I felt somehow rejected by it . 」

 

 Does it feel like that when it can't be acquired?

 

 

 Currently, only I was able to acquire the darkness . . . . . .

 Is there a power of darkness sleeping inside me?

 

 That's, if I remember correctly, when I was second year junior high school,

 I felt that the power of darkness dwells in my right hand . . . . . .

 Perhaps, the power at that time . . . . . .

 

 

 I'd also like to acquire the【Light magic】quickly .

 

 What will it become when darkness and light are combined?

 Will it become the strongest power or . . . . . .

 or will I become insane and die . . . holy cow! There's no such thing, right?

 

 

「Your face looks strange, onii-chan . 」

「What!? It's nothing . 」

 

「You were thinking something strange after all, right?

 At times like this, you always look strange . 」

 

 Sh*t!

 I can't retort . . . . . .
