CCM 43 – Yo, Feels like Something has just Begun


[Ehr-eeh-Ehem.]

.

Let’s cough a bit and divert already from this topic.

.

[Anyway, Remia-san…. I want you to take a quick look at this though.]

[Fumu?]

.

Remia tilts her head in curiosity as I pull the jet black jewel out from my breast pocket.

.

It’s been bugging in my mind that it might have been the cause of those events.

I am referring to the monster outbreaks that have been happening quite a lot recently in different places.

.

[Hmm…]

.

Remia looks at the stone and her expression changes from that of a little girl to that of an enhancer. Her face hardens while keeping her eyes close to that of the stone.

.

[Arios. Would you mind leaving that thing on to my hands for a bit?]

[Please.]

.

I complied immediately and handed over the stone to Remia.

.

[ooh… I see… So this must be… aha… this isn’t something that can be made with just magic circuits…]

.

The renowned magic enchanter has entered a world of her own as she scrutinizingly analyze the jet black jewel. She’s already been doing it for a while as she murmurs  words comprehensible only to her.

.

[oh… So for the stone to activate, this… eh? Ah!!]

.

And at that moment.

The jewel emitted waves of dark aura spreading and dimming the whole laboratory.

.

This uncomfortable feeling…

This must be —

.

[Awoooooooooooooooooooo!!]

.

As I expected, numerous whitewolves just appeared around us out of thin air. Similar to what happened last time, there was not even a trace how these monsters got into this place.

.

[Arios!]

[Yeah.]

.

At the same time Rei calls my name, my hand already has its grip toward my sword’s handle. I draw my sword and immediately cleans up the whitewolves that had suddenly appeared.

.

[I-inconceivable… The whitewolves were just wiped out immediately…]

.

Remia’s eyes then snapped out from a brief daze as she immediately looks toward my direction.

.

[You… Arios — , no, Arios-dono. Aren’t you way too strong?] (TL Note: Remia switch to formal tone as she calls Arios only by his name or ‘previous successor’)

[No no no, that can’t be true.]

[Fufu. You don’t need to be humble. You have quite a pleasing personality too…. How about trying to live with me in solace for some time?]

[Haha. With all due respect, I would like to refuse.]

[How decisive. That’s rather unfortunate.]

.

Even I won’t dare to live in a place where I don’t have the slightest bit of idea what’s going to happen, you know. I’m not a magic enchanter either.

.

[Now then, Arios-dono. As to the result of my analysis of this jewel.]

.

Remia’s expression stiffens once again as we revert back to our main discussion.

.

[Now therefore I conclude. An analysis of this jewel is impossible at this present age. It’s structure deviates too far from the current standard that I cannot comprehend this thing as of the moment.]

[Eh….]

.

Are you serious.

Even a renowned magic enchanter can’t analyze this stone… Just what is going on with this jewel.

.

[It is quite certain but by injecting a certain amount of mana into the circuit of this jewel, the magic embedded to it will activate. That is how it is for all existing magic items – at least up to that point. It’s ability to summon monsters out of nowhere is just beyond of what we know as common sense.]

[I.. I see…]

.

I guess I should have expected it.

.

Even I haven’t heard of any magic item that can summon monsters.

There’s an item where monsters can be lured using a certain scent but there’s nothing else like this jewel which transfers monsters akin like they just teleported.

.

[If I have to guess, then I’d say it must be a relic from an ancient dynasty… Perhaps even a a remains of a miracle left by the gods.]

[Remains left by the gods…]

.

Thinking that far ahead can’t be anything but absurdity.

Sure the stone’s ability is far from ordinary but for it to be thought as a remains left by gods — that isn’t any different from fantasy—

.

But then.

.

<<<UUUWWEEENNNNGGG>>>

.

The jet black jewel starts to emit a strange sound and dark waves started to spread out once again. Similar to what happened earlier, the place has gotten dimmer.

.

[A-absurd…! I haven’t done even the slightest touch to that thing’s magic circuit…!]

.

Remia’s eyes are so wide in shock

.

—————-

.

Now Completed. Now Completed.

A word from the Goddess Dies has been received.

Now activating.

Now activating.

.

—————

.

These characters just then appeared inside my vision.

.

[Ugh…]

.

And that’s when my consciousness has faded.
