This World is the Reality
It was a very sudden thing.
“Well, the leaders definitely saw the earlier magic and should be here soon…”
The moment Argo-san said that, the forest before my eyes wriggled.
The trees that were shaken by the wind and the clouds in the sky didn’t change. However, the atmosphere was different from earlier.
It was queer…heavy atmosphere.
There was a presence of something squirming deep in the forest.
“This…It couldn’t be! Amanda, take care of Yuuri-chan.”
Amanda-san nimbly held me around her armpit and ran while still holding her sword in her arm. We were behind Argo-san who was also holding his sword.
Eh? What is it? Why so suddenly???
I could only dart my eyes in surprise to the two’s sudden changes.
“It’s way too fast than it usually is in the cycle…What a worst timing. We could do it if there were horses. The leaders will be here soon, so you guys can join them there.”
“Argo, please hold out there somehow.”
“Hah. Who do you think you’re talking to? Even if I may look like this, I’m still Izel Fort’s vice-leader, you know?”
“Right. Then I’ll leave it to you.”
For some reason, Argo-san’s voice when he answered seemed a bit more distant. When I turned around curiously, I saw that there were lots of brown monsters in front of Argo-san. The monsters were moving…just like a child…
No, that’s not right. They were goblins. Their ears were pointed and their eyes wee goggling. Their hands were holding sticks. Their figures were really similar to the in-game goblins.
But there were too many of them. There weren’t only dozens of them…there might be no less than one hundred?!
As Argo-san swung his sword, bright red blood splattered from the goblin. The splattered blood dyed Argo-san’s sword and body in crimson. In the next moment, he swung his sword at another goblin.
“A…Argo-san, Argo-san. The…goblins are…”
“I know. Let’s hurry and return to the fort.”
“Even if Yuuri-chan is there, you will only drag him.”
“B…but, I can also fight.”
“…There are too many of them.”
“That’s why, Argo-san, too…”
“That’s right. If you don’t want Argo to die, we have to quickly inform the leaders about this.”
He will die…?
In the game, you can revive someone using a priest’s spell.
Although this world is similar to the game, not everything is the same.
If that’s the case, it will really be the end once someone dies…?
I don’t want that!
I don’t want Argo-san to die!
Argo-san always gently laughed. He patted my head softly. I definitely don’t want such a kind person to die!

Think, I have to think.
What can I do?
That’s right, let’s take another look at my status…
I recited while still in Amanda-san’s arms, and a semi-transparent window opened.
The status screen that I saw yesterday popped open again.
Eh? My name in the status screen has changed from Kujou Yuuri to Yuuri Kujou…1
Aside from that, isn’t there something else?! Something else…
As I desperately scanned over the window with my eyes, I noticed that there was a small arrow on the bottom side of the window. When I tried to tap it, lots of words appeared.
Yuuri Kujou. 8 years old. Sage level 1.

The advanced skills for both elemental magic and recovery magic are written in grey. Does this mean I still can’t use them?
My magic skill is around 100, so I should be able to use them, but…
But that isn’t important now. What can be useful for now is…
That’s right! The area magic, the sage’s speciality!
But just how big is the scope of the area?
Me, Amanda-san, and Argo-san. How should I do it so it can also include Leon-san and the others who will be coming from behind?
I don’t know because I just became a sage recently…
F-for the time being, let’s just try!
Some novels said that magic was based on imagination, so let’s imagine it!
“Area Protect Shield. Target, everyone from Izel Fort! Area Magic Shield. Target, everyone from Izel Fort!”
As I recited the spell, I felt something seemingly leaking out from my body. This is…MP consumption, I wonder? How much MP does the Area Protect Shield consume?
I wonder if the details would come out once I tap it? Aah, but my arms feel heavy…
When I raised my eyes, I was met with Amanda-san’s surprised eyes. A semi-transparent red shield and blue shield were revolving around us.
Thank goodness. For the time being, the shields had effects. With them, our physical and magical defense should be increased. I wonder if the effects will still be there even when I’m apart from Argo-san? It will be nice if it’s there.
“Amanda, what is this?!”
At this time, a cool voice resounded. It was Leon-san. It seemed there were around six people coming over here on their horses.
Ah, there semi-transparent shields were also revolving around Leon-san. My area magic was a success. Thank goodness.
“Leader, I will explain the details later! The omen of Monster Flood occurred. Argo is fighting them right now.”
“Alone?! How absurd!”
“He’s just right here. I’m taking this child to somewhere safe.”
“Understood. Go and notify the fort.”
Eh, I will return to the fort with Amanda-san alone?
N…No. I want to go and help Argo-san!
“Uhm, I can do recovery magic! Please take me with you!”
“But you are a magician, not a priest, right?”
“You’re wrong! I’m a sage!”
I’m still level 1, though…Although I’m level 1, I am a genuine sage!
“Sage…?2 Certainly, we aren’t bringing a priest along right now. Yosh, if you know recovery magic, please do help. Robert, return to the fort and gather everyone. Let’s go!”
Amanda-san and I rode on different horses as we rushed towards where Argo-san was fighting.
Please, Argo-san. Please be safe!
Hurry, hurry, hurry!
I shouted in my heart many times while I was riding on the horse that was running there.
Argo-san, somehow, please be safe!
Leon-san reached first as he jumped from his horse and stood next to Argo-san who was dyed in crimson due to the blood—though it was unsure whose blood was that: the goblins or himself. The sword that was in Argo-san’s hand was also dyed in crimson red, not washed by water magic.
But thank goodness. He was still alive…
Just as I felt relieved, Argo-san’s body slowly tumbled.
Even if I was thinking about coming down from the horse to go and help, the knight-san that gave me a ride stopped me, so I couldn’t go to help.
Argo-san was wounded, so if he’s not healed…
Can [heal] reach him from where I am?!
But it could reach in the game, so it should reach him!
It will definitely reach him!
“Heal! Target is Argo-san!”
A silver light flew from my fingertip to Argo-san. Please let it work!
But Argo-san still hasn’t stood up.
Leon-san swung his sword as he was protecting Argo-san who was completely exhausted.
Amanda-san and the other knights went down from their horses to back them up.
“Heal! Target is Argo-san!”
One more time!
Aah, if only I can use Extra Heal. That spell should be able to completely restore your HP even if the remaining HP is 1.
As I was thinking about it, another possibility rose up in my mind.
If…If there is no HP remaining…?
Heal wouldn’t be effective if there’s 0 HP.
But in that case, what should I do?
Will I be able to use [resurrection] that I had used in the game before, even if it wasn’t there in my status screen?
My tears couldn’t stop flowing.
No, no, no!
I don’t want Argo-san to die!
“One more time… Heal! Target is…”
My voice trembled.
At that time.
“Seriously, it was dangerous this time…”
Argo-san slowly rose up.
“Aah, I’m quite…revived, I think. Is this thanks to Yuuri-chan…?”
Argo-san who had stood up then fixed his grip on his sword, knocking off another goblin.
He was alive!
He was still alive!!!
I was so relieved that I finally realized that I was exhausted.
My arms are heavy…And my head is somewhat heavy as well…
The last thing that I saw was Argo-san fighting back-to-back with Leon-san.
