The Magician Kunon sees everything - Chapter 65
That day, many things started to happen.
It was as if it was all planned.
It was as if someone or something had been waiting for this day.
I’m sure it was just a coincidence.
No, half of it was probably intentional, and the other half was probably inevitable.
First, the first.
Early in the morning, a teacher came to the saint’s classroom.
“Well! Okay, okay! Excellent!”
Ms. Sureya Gaurin.
She is a sorceress with the attribute of light who will turn thirty-two this year.
She was now trembling with emotion in front of the five pots of spiritual grass Shi Shirura that had grown well.
“I bought the seeds from Ms. Suleya.”
The saint was expressionless and surprised.
She was puzzled by the sudden appearance of the high-spirited teacher she had never met before.
However, Kunon’s words that had brought her here convinced her.
If she was told that he had been involved with her without her knowledge, she could understand why she had come.
Yes, the saint was also curious about the seeds of the spiritual grass Shi Shirura that she had been growing for the past couple of weeks.
Kunon said, “I’ll get them ready,” and immediately brought the seeds to her.
The seeds of a rare, expensive spiritual herb that grows only in a limited number of places are not something that even a magic city would have on hand at a general store.
The only way to get it was to order it.
And yet, the reason I was able to get it so quickly was…
“So Ms. Sureya is the provider of the spirit plant seeds?”
It made sense when I thought about it.
I can also understand why Sureya is so impressed.
This “cultivation of the spiritual grass Shi Shirura” must have been her research as well.
That’s why she already had the seeds and Kunon, who knew about it, was able to get them so quickly.
“By the way, how much was it? It wasn’t free, was it?”
Sacred plants are expensive.
Even the seeds are expensive.
The saint had been afraid to mention it until now because she was afraid of being charged if she asked where it came from.
“Two hundred thousand Nekka a piece.”
Two hundred thousand.
Five is one million.
That’s a lot of money.
The saint had never thought about money in her homeland, but after entering the magic school, she acquired a common sense of money by running around trying to find money.
200,000 Nekka is about a month’s salary for a commoner.
What was supposed to be a potted plant that she had grown without thinking, became a real and weighty part of her life.
To be more specific, her stomach was aching a little.
Knowing that this was a cultivation where failure was absolutely not allowed, the pressure finally began to mount.
“But they’re offering me a free pass if I can successfully cultivate and submit my records. That’s great. I’m glad I didn’t have to pay a million dollars.”
In addition, Sureya was a teacher, and she will give me credit for this experiment, so no one is losing anything.
– Theoretically speaking.
The saint’s heart was not at ease when she found out that she had unknowingly risked a million Nekka.
This was also her own fault for running away from the price of the seeds.
In addition, it seems that she had made Kunon take the risk for her own financial gain.
From the tone of Kunon’s voice, if the saint had failed to cultivate, he would have paid for the seeds.
Thinking of that – a scarce feeling came over me.
“Kunon. I’m sorry for the trouble I caused you. I’m sorry.”
The saint, who had only been thinking about herself, was ashamed of herself.
Yes, she was ashamed.
Even the saint, who has few emotions, could somewhat understand this feeling.
She said that this feeling she was experiencing now was surely shame, gratitude, and an apology for getting him involved.
Kunon said to the saint, who bowed her head: “I’d rather hear ‘thank you’ from a woman than ‘I’m sorry.’ I’d like that better.”
– Hank and Leeya, who had been watching the scene since Sureya’s arrival, were both dismayed and impressed by the fact that Kunon was still Kunon.
No, for this time, the admiration was stronger.
Today, we have reached the stage where we can harvest the spiritual grass Shi Shirura.
That’s why Kunon called Sureya.
As a fellow light-attribute holder, Sureya began to discuss professional matters with the saint.
In her hand, she was holding Kunon’s report, which he had recorded so many times.
Deciding that they were in the way, the men promptly left the saint’s classroom.
It was as if they had been kicked out of the classroom, but there was no problem, since each of them had things to do today.
“Hank, this is today’s meat.”
Hank is making bacon again today.
Kunon gave him a leather bag full of small chunks of meat so that he could try again and again.
“I think Leeya can finish this morning. I think we’ve got enough records.”
Leeya’s ‘flight’ had been practiced and verified even after its success.
It seemed that Kunon would soon be able to give a satisfactory report.
A daily allowance had been paid, but this too was promised as a reward for success.
This meant that Leeya would be able to save up for the next month or so, if only to live.
And that wasn’t all.
With flight, you will be able to move fast.
You won’t be able to carry anything too heavy, but you’ll be able to deliver information and simple packages.
In other words, you can work as a wind sorcerer.
A sorcerer’s job paid well.
It took a lot of effort to learn, but I think it will come in handy from now on.
Just before noon.
“- Leeya Horse.”
Two women came to Kunon and the others who were recording the last ‘flight’.
One was the woman who had given Leeya some helpful advice when he was stumbling through his ‘flying exercises’.
The other was a breathtakingly beautiful girl…… and a man, Cassis.
“I’m here on an errand as a representative of the Faction of Rationality, and I wanted to say hello and ask if you’d like to have lunch with me.”
Leeya glanced at him in disbelief that he was a man, when Cassis asked him out.
You look and sound like you’re in a bad mood…….
“Hello, mermaids frolicking on land. They’re here for you, Leeya.”
“Uh, yeah……. mermaids……?”
It’s useless worrying about every single thing Kunon says, but, well, what’s worth worrying about is what’s worth worrying about.
It doesn’t make any sense anyway, so there’s no point in worrying about it.
No, I care about that too, but more than that.
“……maiden? Uhm, Cassis is, well,…… really a man?”
Leeya whispered to Kunon as he lowered his floating body to stand on the ground.
“‘A maiden at heart’ they said.”
Kunon’s eyes seemed to be empty, even though they were hidden by his eye patch.
“He said, ‘Men are always like that, always looking for a woman’s body.’ I was shocked. I’m not interested in what I can’t see, but it hurt me a little because it was like he was asking me if I couldn’t see into his heart.”
It didn’t make sense to Leeya, but it must have been an important issue for Kunon.
“So I decided to accept him as a girl. The gentleman in me told me to.”
Well, I mean.
He is definitely a he, but his heart is a she.
In short, well, what can I say – she is an urban mystery.
That’s what it seems.
– I’m not quite sure what happened to your body to make you go through such a difficult time, but…
“Cassis. Well, I don’t know what to say. Yesterday was…”
“Shut up. You don’t have to say anything. I’m the type to hold on to things.”
After all, it seems that Kunon is the cause of Cassis’s bad mood.
And unusually, Kunon seems to be a little depressed.
The reason why Kunon didn’t want to talk about the situation regarding the “faction” yesterday must be because of the beautiful Cassis! I’m sure.
A depressed Kunon.
A grumpy Cassis.
It’s a composition of two people who seem to have a relationship for a reason.
In fact, something seems to have happened.
“A lot happened yesterday, didn’t it?”
As the story was indescribable, Leeya refrained from commenting on it, just to muddle the waters.
“Leeya. You can go now, because I’m done recording. It’s outrageous to make mermaids who have forgotten the sea wait.”
It didn’t sound like the man who had made ten fairies wait for him at lunch yesterday.
As for Leeya, it’s usually painful to make people wait, so he decided to take his word for it.
“- Welcome to the Faction of Rationality.”
As Leeya was led into the large mansion where Rationality was based, he met with the main members of the faction, including their representative, Lulomet.
As there were less than 30 people in total, everyone was reasonably kind to the newcomers.
I haven’t responded to the main decision yet, but I think I can do well in this faction.
“Well. Yesterday, Kunon was called in, but as for his affiliation, he can be found at…….”
Until Leeya said so.
All the members of the Rational Faction, who had been eating peacefully in the large cafeteria, fell silent with serious faces.
What the hell?
What is this reaction?
“Didn’t Kunon tell you?”
The only one who hadn’t changed was Lulomet, who asked, and Leeya nodded, aware that he had touched a problem he shouldn’t have.
He had touched a boil.
But if you don’t know the cause of the swelling, it’s very difficult to do anything about it in the future.
Leeya considers Kunon to be his friend.
That’s why he wants to know what his friend has done and what the Rational Faction thinks of Kunon.
Depending on the reply, I may have to reconsider my affiliation.
“I see. He didn’t speak, did he? I see…….”
Lulomet nodded several times – and said that absently.
“The main special class students of the three factions, and Kunon Gurion. We had a magic match with them.”
The senior students of the special class fought against Kunon.
– A shiver ran down Leeya’s spine.
He was simply afraid to hear the reply.
“You’ll know the outcome….. when you see our reactions, won’t you?”
I knew it.
Did Kunon win?
I’m curious about the format of the match, but no matter what the form of the match was, the seniors were defeated despite having a distinguished lineup.
To Kunon alone.
Yesterday, since then.
It seems that more has happened than Leeya could have imagined.
