【Ditzen】

Two days have passed since Yuri departed into the sky .

Although I’m throwing all of my frustration at the research of the toilet, I’m yet to reproduce even one of its functions . My days are filled with howling from gloom while sitting at the toilet that got closer to the real thing only in appearance .

In the afternoon of one of such days, I heard a knocking on my door .

Could it be, a messenger from the sky?!

Thinking that I rushed to open the door, but the one standing there was a male elf in a tattered robe . His hair is in disorder, exposed skin was covered in bruises and dirt, yet even so, his appearance did not lose its allure .

Well, not like I care about the beauty of elves .

「…Are you the magician named Ditzen?」

「Ah, yes . I’m Ditzen . 」

When I answered so, the elf narrowed his eyes looking at me sharply . From his voice and demeanor, I was convinced that that was a man, but from that expression, I also understood that he is a soldier who went through his share of battles .

He gave the impression of being powerful enough to make one swallow his breath .


As I got weak in the knees from fear, the elf put his hand on the edge of the door and forced himself inside of the room . I think I’m about to cry .

「W-What’s your business?」

I don’t remember doing anything to get hated by elves .

I looked at him with a plea in my eyes, but his stare didn’t change .

「…We know that you went to the Heavenly Country . Reveal all information you acquired there . 」

「No, I couldn’t go to Heavenly Country, so I know nothing . 」

I went into full denial without thinking . Probably surprised by my unexpectedly strong denial, the elf closed his mouth and went silent for a while .

Then, a beautiful girl with purple hair appeared from behind the elf . Without a doubt, she can be called a beauty . Just like the elf, her hair was somewhat in disarray and her armor had scratches and dirt here and there, but even so, her beauty was obvious .

「How much time are you planning to waste there?」

A cold voice of the armored beauty almost gave me shivers .

「M? Armor?」

Purple hair, and the armor that surely was pure white previously . And on the chest, the armor had the emblem of the Blau Empire .

「…No way, the witch of the empire…」

A hoarse voice escaped my lips . While being a woman, she abandoned the position of the court magician and joined the war, eventually attaining the rank of a general, The Witch of the Empire, Violette . That name travels along with the tales of her ferocious combat style and a notable fighting record of without a single defeat .

Hearing me, the beauty raised one corner of her mouth and looked at the elf from the side .

「Looks like I’m more famous in other countries, Aifa . 」

Even after the woman said so, the elf kept his mouth shut, without showing any signs of discontent .

However, right now, I couldn’t care less about that .

「Aifa…」

A person who is said to have brought drastic improvement to the imperial magic system and magical tools . Although he has been serving the empire for decades, elves inherently loathe such attachments .

Therefore, the reason why Aifa serves the empire is considered a mystery .

And at this moment, that mysterious and most prominent practitioner in the empire, was right in front of me .

「…Why are the Empire’s court magician and general in these lands…」

For a moment, three letters appeared in my mind – war . But then I remembered that the answer had already been stated by Aifa .

Flying island, Heavenly castle… Heavenly Country, they were collecting information on it .

And one didn’t even have to think to understand the reason .

「…Are you planning to take hold of the Heavenly Country . 」

When I said that, the two looked at each other . And then, the witch’s mouth turned into a smile .

For some reason, that sight filled me with fear for my own safety .

I began to chant the spell, mumbling it inside my mouth, trying not to make a sound . I had no time to think and my body was moving by itself .

「Mugh!」

A devastating wind, strong enough to destroy eardrums, blew over, and in the blink of an eye, a whirlwind covered the entrance .

Being able to instantly activate the wind spell that is difficult to avoid in a narrow space, was a good job, if I may say so myself .

While hearing Aifa’s voice coming from behind, I rush to the back of the room .

There, behind the door was a messy laboratory and even deeper behind it was a testing site . However, the testing site was a dead end, so there is no escape through it .

I swiftly changed my direction and jumped into a window, that was only about half of my body in height .

「Hoooryah!」

I break through the window while protecting my head with both hands and roll out onto the road outside .

I grazed palms on the stone pavement, but I returned to running before I even felt pain . Moving my lips, I kicked off the ground with all my strength and took flight .

「T-Those two are too bad for opponents!」

I scream while flying through the sky . I have confidence that I won’t lose to some run-of-the-mill practitioner, but if the rumors are true, I can’t compete with those two even one-on-one .

「I cannot afford to die yet!」

I fly with desperation, aiming for the castle . I don’t think that even those two would try to go against a whole army .

If I manage to run away it’s my win . With the flight spell, I can reach the castle in no time .

While thinking that, I look behind me .

However, what I saw, were figures of Aifa and Violette, flying towards me expressionlessly .
