“A genius spirit user? “

 

 The daughter of the Lumberjack family, Chérie Lumberjack. According to Yukari, she is a genius spirit user who controls a powerful spirit and has achieved adventurer rank A at the age of 16.

 

 Hearing that, I tried to make a guess. Spirit user―― in other words she attacks using spirits. But that would be impractical, that is, back at the time of Mobius.

 

 Certainly, it’s useful to attack using the powerful spirits in the early stages of the game. However, as you approach the middle of the end game, the so-called “It’s faster to just punch them” phenomenon occurs. Specifically, as a result of your stats rising and your various skills improving, the cost-performance of trading blows is more effective than using spirits. Therefore, in the late game, it’s hard to think of spirits as useful other than to use them for Spirit Possession. But well, that’s just my opinion. I wonder how it would be in this world? But even so, for the 16-year-old daughter of a noble to be considered a genius and achieve adventurer rank A by using spirits…… I have a good hunch.

 

“By the way, I think I still haven’t heard your age, Yukari.”

 

 After I said while remembering, Yukari then continued.

 

“Uhmm, I’m 19 years old. How about you two? “

“I’m 17.”

“I am 16 years old.”

 

 No way— That’s the kind of face Yukari made. Well, I understand why.

 

“You are the oldest.”

“Onee-chan! “

“……In dark elf theory, I’m still young. I’m about 16 years old.”

 

 Yukari’s expression froze after hearing the word “oldest”, which Silvia deliberately said. And what do you mean with dark elf theory? Is that some sort of mathematical formula?

 

 …………Wait, am I being relegated in this chat?

 

 Somehow, I’m getting a bit lonely. You wanna come, Angolmois……?

 

“――Did you call for me, my Second?”

“Just talk to me about something.”

“As you wish. Then, let me tell you about the time when I destroyed the earth spirit, Gnome――”

“What are you saying!? “

 

 What’s with this guy…… what is he saying!?

 

“Did you really destroy him? “

“Indeed. It happened a certain midnight. He rebelled saying he would defeat me and would replace me as the ruler of the spirits.”

“Ahh, I see.”

 

 So, there’s that kind of strife in the spirit world too. Then, I guess he had no choice.

 

“And also, not only did he dare to stain my sleep-wear with soil, HE EVEN PUT A CRACK ON MY FAVORITE CUP! Please, forgive me.”

 

 …………Eh?

 

“It was a disgrace for him to attack me on my bed, but he ignored it. He understood what he did when he attacked me. Therefore, I dropped the thunder of death onto Gnome, and turned him into charcoal in an instant! “

 

 Angolmois then laughed with a “Kakaka”. Wait, no, no, no…….

 

“Was that okay? “

“Huh? Ahh, don’t worry about it. The position of next Great Spirit of Earth was left to his daughter.”

“That’s not what I meant……”

 

 Aren’t this guy and I connected? Then why can’t I understand the point of that story?

 

 As I was sighing at this loose sense of unity, a knock sounded at the door.

 

“Second-sama, and everyone in team Firstest, I’ve come to pick you up.”

 

 It was the steward of Earl Lumberjack’s house, Forest-san.

 

“A carriage is parked downstairs, outside. If you are ready――”

 

 I just nodded to avoid making the greeting too long and said we were ready to leave. It’s great that he is polite, but the way he speaks just takes too long.

 

Angolmois, can you change into ‘manner mode’? You can, right? Do it.

As you wish.

 

 I instructed Angolmois based on the knowledge I obtained by the sense of togetherness.

 

 In the next moment, Angolmois went Bzzzzt! like an electrical discharge, and changed into red and black lightning, entering my body.

 

「(With this, others won’t be able to see me.)」

 

 We can still talk, but he has no substance. I decided to call this state ‘manner mode’ from now on.

 

“Alright, you guys are ready, right? Let’s go.”

 

 After completing the necessary preparations, we headed outside to where Forest-san was waiting for us.

 

 The moment my hand casually touched the doorknob to open it.

 

 

 ZZZZZZZT! !

 

“DAAAAAAAAAAAMN, IT HURTS! “

 

 

“Se-Second-dono!? What’s wrong!? “

 

 It hurts!! The heck is this!?

 

……Fumu. Maybe static electricity overflowing from me? Or maybe something similar.

 

 T-this bastard, shit……! This wasn’t at the level of static! Fuck!

 

Hahaha, my bad! Forgive me, my Sec――

 

 Unsummon!

 

 

“…………I’m sorry but, can someone else open the door?”

 

“Un-understood? “

 

 Yukari did so while being puzzled.

 

“Later…… I’ll explain it later.”

 

 Dragging my still numb body, I went to the meeting with the Earl.

 The three girls were bitterly laughing inside the carriage when I told them what had happened. It shocked me that even Eko could make such a face. I vowed in my mind to never use ‘manner mode’ ever again.

  1. As I was reading it, I wondered… [Should “manner mode” be “mana mode”?] but by the end of the chapter… I’m not entirely convinced… Hmmm… Since “manner mode” might actually be “mana mode while inside the summoner’s body” or something?
    Oh well!
    Thanks for the chapters! (lets see how much longer I can keep reading tonight, before I’m dragged off to play games or something)
