The one responsible for spreading that out was the supposedly charming and lovely girl, just that one person called Aidle. Nothing has changed in regards to her appearance. But they noticed that she was masked with a serious look and that’s not all. What emanated from her was a physical pressure so strong it made the surrounding feel that their spirits were being crushed.
Although they don’t want to focus, they still can’t move their eyes away from her. They all felt that they might be killed if they take their eyes off even for just a second.
She then got closer to Senial, who was left cowering as Aidle continued. Senial, who was suffering from the pressure, tried backing while screeching for a bit.
But then, all that pressure vanished.
「Sorry about that, It’s alright now.」
She moves closer to Senial and pats her head. After a bit, Senial finally relaxed and was able to stand up, and once more got hold of her magic tool. After seeing that, Aidle returned to her predetermined position.
『Well… That was a really shocking event but everything is fine now!! Everyone, please be at ease!! Participant Aidle is now with us on stage, so let us begin the match!!』
Then the match was started immediately, but Aidle casually approached Aleid, who was still frozen and didn’t return to reality, and grasped his shoulders.
「Are you alright? Calm down for now, breathe slowly…」
Aleid, like Senial, was also in the same state as someone who got in direct contact with the pressure released by Aidle. Color finally returned to his face and his breathing became normal. When he could finally relax from the pressure, he put his weight on his cane and wiped off the sweat on his face. It was quite impressive that he didn’t faint after receiving all that intense pressure at close range despite his age.
「Seriously… What kind of gruesome massacre were you trying to do?」
「That, well, sorry… So are we going to proceed with the fight now?」
Aleid swings his head sideways and made a bitter smile then answering 「Impossible, impossible, it’s just impossible!」
「I’ve decided to abstain. It’s not a joke. It’s not like I’m afraid or not confident in my strength, but I know it won’t matter even if I continue to fight. O~oi, I decided I will surrender!!」
『Ah, hai. Due to participant Aleid surrendering, participant Aidle will now move on to the semifinals!!』
This time, there were no cries or cheers. A few minutes after Aidle left the stage, all the tension finally broke and it became noisy once more.
「About today’s thing, you went a little overboard.」
「Yeah, only a bit. Because I felt like I might explode if I didn’t release that much.」
When night arrived, La Veil and I were locked inside the room. La Veil discovered a letter that was placed where Arena was previously seated and then we both confirmed the contents.
『If you want your friend to be returned, lose when you fight against the Hero.』 was the content of the letter.
「It looks like their aim is to boast about the power of the Hero, huh. There are probably no worries about Arena staying alive. for now.」
「Yeah… That in itself is good.」
At that time during my fight, if the Hero showed himself, I might have thrown away the fight and just slaughtered him. And as a continuation of that, this kingdom might have been turned into nothing more than a vacant plot of land. It was because I saw the figure of Senial-san crying in fear in front of me that I was able to stop myself from unconsciously releasing that tremendous killing intent.
「Probably, I am used to being human for too long and was was not able to do things as a fairy recently, so I wasn’t able to prepare myself for such matters… I should have forced Arena to stay in fairy form at that time. Yeah, forcibly if I had to… And because of that, I now have to let La Veil do something really dangerous.」
「That is not quite the case this time Master. As long as we continued on this trip, something was bound to happen. Now is also a similar case. I did the contract while fully expecting unpredictable things to happen! So don’t hold back and rely on me at times like this!!」
La Veil, who was pounding her chest, stood up and showed me a face full of self-confidence.
「This is not the face of the Master that I have fell in love with and that I want to see. I want you to continue laughing and playing around with Arena. Eliminating obstacles that obstruct that should be left to me. That is what I have sworn!」
「That’s not what we really promised… Iya, mou if that’s what you really want then. You’re really serious about this, right?」
「No problem. Please go on Master!」
After nodding to her affirmation, I pressed the Fairy Magic I created in my hand into La Veil’s chest. Immediately after that, I was assaulted by intense heat and lost consciousness……
「…Did she fall asleep?」[ED: Should be obvious, but it’s La Veil’s PoV now.]
I said so after she blacked out because she used that Fairy Magic. I knew that she would suffer a considerable amount of burden since what she did was actually manipulating someone else’s status.
La Veil (1653) ♀ Lv. 1024
Inherent Race: Red Dragon (Ancient Dragon)
【Inherent Skills】 Dragon Scale, Flame Prison, Super Synchronization
Skill: Dragon Magic (S), Fire Magic (S+), Body Difference Correction (A+)
『You can increase the synchronization rate with the contractor for 5 minutes and borrow status. Synchronization with the contractor will be disabled once the skill enters it’s cool down time.』
With this skill, I can definitely win against a Hero. You can’t think ordinary about fairies at all, when you see one that can actually grant unique skills to others. It’s impossible even for the Old Ancient Dragons. How Master still thinks that this is something normal is kind of fun by itself.
(In actuality, how can she understand that fairy magic like this is not even in the realms of magic anymore…)
All I understand is that it’s a kind of magic that doesn’t consume magic power. I have heard that beastmen also have such kinds of skills. However, I have never heard of any magic that you can freely manipulate like this. This is already something different.
As for my Dragon Magic, which is an inherent skill, it still consumes a suitable amount of Magic Power when used. Not to mention, it is something that I can’t freely manipulate. Well, even if I think hard about it, I will never understand just how absurd this unique fairy is.
「Because a god of this world was also a Fairy, this must be a power that was granted to her.」
While stroking the head of the quietly sleeping fairy, I kept myself on guard until morning.
