『The next condition is 9 kinds of attribute reinforcement magic stone.』
Attribute reinforcement magic stone!?
Demon lord-sama gave a surprisingly strange condition.
But, for the King and Co, it was an unfeasible condition once again.
We went back to the anteroom tent.
「It’s 9 kinds of attribute reinforcement magic stone,
The current condition doesn’t seem to be a big deal like the previous one.」
「That’s not true, Your Highness.」
「What do you mean, Lyle Gewalt?」
「If I’m not mistaken, in order to make an attribute reinforcement magic stone,
I heard that the person who can use the attribute magic is necessary.」
「There will be people who can use attribute magic amongst the soldiers and adventurers.」
「The condition is 9 but there are only 8 kinds of attribute magic. That 9 probably includes recovery magic.」
「8 kinds of attribute magic?」
「That’s right, they are Wind, Water, Earth,
and Ice, Darkness, Fire, Light, which are rares.」
「If I’m not mistaken, can’t your daughter use Light magic?」
「Yes, my daughter Lela can use Light magic but……
she’s currently in Ikebu town.」
「There’s Seiji’s magic.」
「We will be able to manage Light with that somehow or another.
But, Your Highness, have you forgotten?
There are 8 kinds of attribute magic,
which means, Lightning is also needed.」
What to do… with how things are, should I pitch in and help once again?
But, let’s wait until the King and Lyle Gewalt bring up the subject.
「It’s already over……(Glance)」
「If the situation becomes like this, let’s prepare for an honorable defeat……(Glance)」
The King and Lyle Gewalt glanced at me repeatedly.
I-, It’s annoying……
「If you’ve given up, my interpretation ends accordingly, right?
Well then, good bye.」
「W-, Wait! Please wait!」
「Is there something else, Your Highness?」
「Can’t you somehow do something with your strange magic?」
Am I some robotic cat!?
「Well, I can but.」
「Y-, You can!!?
Didn’t I say I will pay double the Aurum just now?
That will be enough.」
「That is the reward for paying the 2 million Aurum!」
「W-, Well then, will 10, 000 Aurum per one attribute magic stone be alright?」
「It’s no good!!
In any event, I’m going……」
「W-, Wait, please wait!
You can have anything you want for the reward!」
「N? Just now, did you say I can have anything?」
Hmm, with tracking beacon, it should have been recorded.
Since there’s an excess beacon which had been attached to the Goblin King, I put it on myself.
「What kind of? Will you do it?」
Well, since it needs the help of many people in order to prepare the attribute reinforcement magic stones, you need to promise corresponding rewards to them.」
「I-, I understand, then it’s an agreement.」
「Alright, I received the pledge (recorded by magic). I’m now going without delay.」
「I’m relying on you, Hero!」
Treating me a Hero only when the time is convenient, huh!
I went to Ikebu town using【Teleportation】. Because, I’m going to make Light attribute reinforcement magic stone with Lela.
The soldiers let me in on sight as usual.
When I tried to knock at the door of Lela’s room.
Hm? A voice is calling me from inside.
「Lela, I know that I often come in before knocking.」
Hm? Something’s strange.
Let’s try to knock again.
「Lela, is something wrong?」
「Oh, that’s right. You didn’t notice?
May I come in? I’m in a hurry.」
「W-, Wait. Please wait a moment.」
Lela this fellow, I wonder what’s wrong?
For some reason, *clackity clack* sound can be heard from inside the room.
But, it takes too much time, what the hell are you doing inside?
「Alright, you may come in.」
When I entered the room―
There was Lela wearing a dress.
「Eh? Why are you dressed like that?
Were you going out after this?」
「It doesn’t matter.
Other than that, do you need something?」
Lela’s face is somewhat red, does she have a fever?
For some reason, her breathing is rough, did she exercise inside the room?
「What are you staring at!」
「Oh, sorry sorry,
I have a favor to ask of you, Lela.」
「It’s a serious favor involving the fate of this country.」
「Can I rely on you?」
「In short, I should pour Light magic into this stone?」
「Oh, on my signal please.」
「Then, let’s proceed immediately.」
I take the magic stone of Nullpo in my hand and Lela stretches her hand as well……
Lela’s hand touches mine,
Lela retracted her hand and cast her eyes down.
「What are you doing, Lela?」
「I-, I’m sorry.」
I grabbed Lela’s hand and placed it on the magic stone of Nullpo.
But, Lela’s hand is full of sweat for some reason. Is she so tense that even her hand is sweating? Well, whatever.
「Let’s do it on the count of 3.」
「3, 2 ,1, go!」
When both of us poured magic power into the magic stone of Nullpo……
The magic stone of Nullpo shone.
When it was done shining.
Lela took the completed magic stone in her hand and her eyes brightened, staring at it entranced.
「W-, What is this!?」
「It’s a Light attribute reinforcement magic stone.」
「Light attribute reinforcement magic stone! I-, It’s beautiful……」
「S-, Seiji, wait a moment.」
「What is it?」
「Are you going to take the magic stone?」
「Oh, the country will be saved with this.」
「Can’t you make another one and give it to me?」
「Oh well, there are still more magic stone of Nullpo.」
「Really!? Thank you.」
Then Lela and I made another Light attribute reinforcement magic stone.
「Don’t sell it.」
「I absolutely wouldn’t sell this!」
I left Lela alone, who was rubbing the magic stone on her cheeks as though she subsisted on it,
and used【Teleportation】to the next location.
