Arc 2 Small Sage, Doing Her Best!

Chapter 33

Prologue

 

A month after the Monster Flood, the adventurers and the royal chivalric order that was gathered in the fort—each of them went away from the Izel fort.

The ones who remained were only [The Dawn’s Seeker] whose party movements were indefinitely postponed by Frank-san’s absurdity.

The leader, Simon-san, was to assume the duties of a priest in the Izel fort on behalf of Frank-san, so their movements were suspended.

Though thanks to that, the beastman Virna-san would be able to go together with me to explore the labyrinth.

The remaining members, Gazad-san would be returning to the Dwarf republic to concentrate on blacksmithing for some time, while Naruruth-san the elf seemed like she would be staying in the Izel fort in order to study the rejuvenated Demon Forest.

Since the elf that usually won’t leave their own country would be staying in the fort, the knights seemed to become excited, but unfortunately, they didn’t seem to be able to catch Naruruth-san’s eyes.

Yeah. Things like they were too young…

C-certainly, I heard that the elves were famous for their longevity, but no matter how you look at it, she seemed to be eighteen-year-old? Just how old is Naruruth-san…?

Actually, Frank-san seemed to have heard about it, that Naruruth-san herself wasn’t even sure about that. She only answered with, “I’m still a young tree”, but were the elves born from the trees?!

 

“Don’t you know? Elves are born from the flowers.”

“Flowers, huh?”

 

After the Monster Flood ended, not many strong monsters appeared in the vicinity of the Demon Forest. And so, today, I am accompanying Karin-san with her slime research.

Of course it would be dangerous with just me and Karin-san alone, so Amanda-san, Virna-san, Argo-san, and Frank-san were also there.

It included all members who would be going to the Earth Labyrinth together, so it seemed like we would be grasping our coordination from now on.

 

“On the first day, God created the fairies from the light that flooded the earth.

On the second day, God created the elves from the flowers that bloomed beautifully on the earth.

On the third day, God created the dwarves from the shining stones in the earth.

On the fourth day, God created the beastmen from the beasts running around the earth.

On the fifth day, God created the humans from the soil blessed for its abundance in the earth.

On the sixth day, the elves, dwarves, beastmen, and the humans were fighting over the land’s hegemony. At that time, the demons were created from the blood spilled to the earth.

On the seventh day, God lamented over the sight of people quarrelling over the land. A drop of the God’s tear fell to the earth, forming a river and a forest, and from there, the demonic beasts were born.”

A bright voice flowed from Karin-san’s mouth. If not for the slime hat that was put on her head, it would make a very beautiful scenery befitting of a painting.

 

“The Book of Genesis, isn’t it?”

 

What Karin-san hummed was some phrases from the [Book of Genesis] that played out during Elysia Online’s opening. The opening where one could witness the birth of each race in a 3D and 360 degree full screen was really beautiful that I wouldn’t be bored no matter how many times I watched it.

“Yeah. It’s a myth, so I don’t know to what extent is it true, but the elves compare themselves to trees. When they are small, they are called as [the small young leaves].”

“Is that so? It’s my first time hearing that.”

 

Amanda-san looked at Karin-san in surprise. It seemed like Argo-san’s first time hearing it too, so he was surprised. In comparison, Frank-san and Virna-san who were in the same party as Naruruth-san seemed to have known about it, as they weren’t surprised at all.

 

“When they are adolescent, they are called as [the fresh verdure saplings]. Naruruth-san is in that group. Upon becoming adults, they will become [the dignified mature tree], and finally they will become [the wise old tree].”

 

He~. It felt like following a tree’s evolution. Interesting.

 

“But we won’t be able to tell one from another if we go by the same names, right?”

I nodded at Amanda-san’s question.

“Elves are able to put magical powers in names. That’s how they are able to be called differently.”

“Is it Kotodama?1

“Yeah.”

 

Ooh. So Kotodama is the elves’ peculiar magic?! The guild master, Cecilia-san was an elf, so I have seen it in use before. Fighting magic that uses plants and thorny whips really suit them.

Come to think of it, I remembered that there was a certain person that was famous in a group of people called as the queen, although the person behind her should be an uncle.

How nostalgic.

“Can the kotodama be used to summon the slimes?”

“If only that’s possible, that’d save us a lot of troubles!”

As Amanda-san pointed that out, Karin-san’s mouth formed the character of ‘へ’.

 

Karin-san’s ambition of taming slimes with Cure was, unfortunately, a failure. The arranged slimes all fled to the forest. How unfortunate. I thought we would be able to find Purun a friend.

Purun is my new friend that I gained during the time we searched for slimes the other day.

It was a very adorable slime, you see?

 

It had candies or other sweets as its meal. It was transparent, so lots of colour felt like they were mixed in it. If one were to give it various candies, it would turn into pretty colour~.

The blue slime that Karin-san brought along was also cute, but my child won’t lose to it, okay?

 

But Karin-san seemed like she wanted to keep another slime besides the slime that was tamed by making it drink the holy water.

As for why, it was because my Purun could understand what people say better than Karin-san’s slime.

 

But I think that wouldn’t it be because of my subjugation skill?

However, Karin-san said that taming it by Cure and the holy water might make them different, and she was hoping that she could investigate that matter!

 

Still, every-thing, it ended up in a failure…

Once, there was a transparent slime in Izel fort, but it was still needed to clean up the fort, so it couldn’t be handed over. Amanda-san witnessed Karin-san trying to take it stealthily, only to be scolded by the cafetaria auntie.

 

That was why, everyone invited her to go look for slimes in order to cheer up the disheartened Karin-san.

 

Karin-san’s favorite peculiar slime-san.

Just where could you be~?

  1. A Japanese belief that mystical powers dwell in words and names. English translations include “soul of language”, “spirit of language”, “power of language”, “power word”, “magic word”, and “sacred sound”. The notion of kotodama presupposes that sounds can magically affect objects, and that ritual word usages can influence our environment, body, mind, and soul.
