“Alright…… Yukari, you’ll be the one performing the Spirit Summoning.”
If it’s a weak spirit, a non-combatant should be doing the summoning preferably. I’d be troubled if Silvia and Eko can’t summon a more powerful spirit.
Yukari moved one step forward, albeit a bit puzzled. I’m not really good at reading the slight changes in her facial expressions, but she seems to be a bit eager to do it. Silvia and Eko, on the other hand, are very easy to read, their faces practically screaming “I’m envious”.
“You’ve already learned Spirit Summoning, right? “
“Yeah. It’s at Class 16.”
The condition to unlock 《Spirit Summoning》 is extremely simple, 「Learn one or more 【Magic】 skills」. The skill itself can then be acquired by assigning experience points to it after unlocking it. However, this alone isn’t enough to summon a spirit. Summoning a spirit required a 『Spirit Ticket』.
“Well then, what should we do about the ticket……?”
There are two ways to get one. The first one is as a monster drop and the second one is as a reward for clearing a dungeon. Both of them have quite low chances. It drops very rarely from Lower ranked and Intermediate ranked monsters, but as you can see, the possibility is extremely low as I’ve never gotten one since coming to this world.
The quickest way to get one is to buy it at an auction. I’ve got more money than I know what to do with so I’m not worried even if it costs millions of CL. The question is, whether it’s up at an auction or not……
“――Fufufufu, ahahaha! “
At that moment, Silvia immediately began to laugh. A sort of irritating, self-important laugh.
“Hey, what’s with the sudden laugh? Ahh…… she finally broke.”
“I just wanted to try doing it! You’re wrong! Look at this! “
“What? Huh, OHH!? “
Silvia was holding a Spirit Ticket high in between her fingers. Are you kidding me!? She really is a lifesaver.
“It dropped from a Rock Turtle while Eko and I were having our special training in the Limptfert Dungeon! “
“Amazing! Good job, Silvia! “
“Umu! That’s right, that’s right! ……And so. I have a request for you, Second-dono.”
With the Spirit Ticket in between her fingers, she placed both her hands in a praying pose. I thought I heard a “Tch” from Yukari, but I think that was just my imagination.
“I don’t mind using this to summon a spirit for Yukari. But in return, how about, yeah…… how about going shopping with me? “
Shopping with her, huh? I see, so it’s a plead. Alright, that’s fine for a spirit ticket.
“I’m grateful, and of course that’s alright. I’ll buy you whatever you like, be it a weapon or some armor.”
“O……kay? No, that’s not what I meant.”
“Eko, you want to come too? It dropped for Silvia, but you were there too Eko, so this belongs to the two of you. If so, then it would be unfair if I didn’t give a reward equally.”
“Is that okay!? I’ll go! I want to go too! “
“Is that so? Alright, it’s decided then.”
I then grabbed the Spirit Ticket from Silvia’s fingers. For some reason, Silvia had an expression like she wanted to complain, but then she just said “Darn…… well, at least it’s something”. Does she have some issue with me giving Eko a reward too? Ohh Silvia, you’re a greedy one.
“Well, so there’s that. Yukari, use this ticket to summon Windfield.”
“I got an agreement. I already informed that guy. You can use the summoning at any time.” said Angolmois.
“You heard him, Yukari. Use it.”
“……It’s amazing for this to proceed without a hitch. No, I didn’t mean it in a bad way. It’s always like this. On the contrary, it’s reassuring that even after four months, Master hasn’t changed a bit.”
I think Yukari still has her sharp tongue, but I better remain silent about my opinions on it.
Along with that quiet voice, Yukari activated 《Spirit Summoning》.
Fuuuu――A gentle breeze touched my cheeks.
At that moment, a slender, tall beauty appeared in front of us.
With gray short hair in a two-block style, the trimmed part gave off a masculine vibe, but other than that, it was mostly a feminine vibe. The long almond-shaped eyes gave off a sleepy aura, quite far from imposing.
“……Uhmm, I’m Windfield. Hi.”
After some silence, Winfield finally spoke, and what came out was a sort of self-introduction, albeit a bit bare-boned. Immediately afterwards, that mouth closed again and silence returned.
Silvia was the one to break it saying “Is that it? “, in retort. Windfield nodded and responded with more silence. It seems like that was really it.
“This guy’s like this. However, Windfield’s political skills are unrivaled.”
Ohh, ‘this’ Angolmois made a rare follow-up. In other words, this guy’s skills are the real deal.
“Windfield. Would you be willing to serve as my political advisor from now on? “
“If my Master gives me permission. However, I’m alright with that.”
“Master? Ahh, you mean me? Of course, I’ll allow it. Serve Master wholeheartedly”, said Yukari.
“Yeah. Understood, Master. Second-san, I look forward to working with you.”
We shook hands. It was a gentle handshake. Windfield might not be good at holding a conversation, but as an individual, there’s no lack of courtesy. I think I’ll get along with this guy.
“Well, without further ado, let’s share the information with Windfield――”
“W-wait a moment! Second-dono, didn’t you say last night that you were going to check mine and Eko’s growth? “
……Ahh, I guess I did. I don’t really remember it, probably because of the wine, but yeah, I think I did say that.
“Is that so? Then, you two, let’s go to the Dungeon.”
“Please wait, Master. If you’re going to the Dungeon, why not check ‘that’ that you entrusted me with first? “
……Ahh, that might be better. It’s been four months since I asked ‘that’ to Yukari, so maybe I should check it out first.
“That’s right. Yukari comes first then.”
“Wait. What about that wolf? It’s better not to leave that matter alone.”
……Ahh, that’s certainly true. Now that everyone is here, I can consult with them……
“Second! Lake! Let’s see it! “
……Un. Let’s go to the lake.
“Alright, on to the lake.”
“――Please wait. Second-sama is tired. I think it might be better for him to sleep first.”
Just before Eko grabbed my hand to pull me towards Lake Vanilla, the butler Cubero came to the living room with great timing, stopping me.
As expected of an esper, a nice proposal. After eating my fill, I was starting to feel sleepy. Let’s go lay down to refresh myself.
“Yeah, I’ll do that. Good nightー”
Turning my back to everyone who were lost for words, I headed towards my room while being guided by Cubero. In front of the door to my room, I thanked Cubero, then jumped to my bed and sank in as my eyes closed.
The figure of Windfield, whom I saw before leaving, was flowing in my mind. Those were very cold-hearted eyes as if observing everyone’s every move, not leaving anything out. At least that was my impression.
How useful will that guy be? With some expectations in mind, I fell deep into my sleep.
However, at this time I didn’t know of Windfield’s abnormal excellence――
