She Professed Herself The Pupil Of The Wise Man Chapter 1
Chapter 1: Kagami becomes a Herbivore?
Oh that’s right. I fell asleep before logging out.
Organizing the thoughts in his head, Kagami recalled having slept after the breakfast call. And then Kagami pinched his forehead while looking up at the sky.
He did not know how long he had slept. However, he judged that it was unlikely to have been a long time because his little sister had not woken him up.
Shutting his eyes and then opening them widely to clear away strong feeling of sleepiness, he finds himself in the middle of a meadow enclosed by a forest. Here and there unknown flowers were scattered, and over in the distance, a magnificent mountain range could be seen. And now among the mountains dully shining silver towers could be seen peeking through.
The scene was an already familiar one inside the game. Standing still in the meadow and placing a hand on his jaw, a question came to mind. He did not notice the sense of incongruity at this time.
For one thing, [falling asleep] in an online game was a famous saying. It is a saying that indicates that an avatar that falls asleep during the so-called game will not show any reaction.
Currently, after coming back from falling asleep to the present conditions, the expectation is that there was a problem with the system.
VR equipment, was designed to automatically shutdown when falling asleep and to cut off the power.
However, the [Linked Silver Towers] were visible among the mountains, no matter how you looked at it. There is no way for Kagami to have been mistaken, because out of the nine towers one of them is his base.
Was there a bug? While falling asleep may be an unusual event, he decided to stop thinking about it.
It was because there was another mysterious point, his body. If anything, this was more important.
There was a fragrance. Whenever the wind blew, a grassy-smell crossed under his nose giving off a sense of incongruity.
Although VR technology has advanced, so that the sense of touch has been reproduced as such, neither taste not smell has been reproduced on a practical level. Yet clearly, his brain recognizes the scent when he breathes through his nose.
Then he attempts to tear off the grass at his feet and chews it. Then, the bitter and astringent taste spread throughout his mouth warping his expression. He spit it out along with a large amount of saliva and wiped it with the back of his hand.
The tongue is stimulated by the sense of taste, even saliva is carefully reproduced. While thinking that he could not understand herbivores, he raised his head to examine the surroundings. In the vicinity of the enclosure, there were creatures that looked like children with blue ears and noses that held dully shining knives. They were not blue faced but rather had an actual blue face.
Oh that’s right,
He remembered that he had come to subjugate a hoard of monsters near the national border. Thinking that he had nothing better to do, he was quite amenable to cleaning them up. Its appearance has been seen many times since his beginner days a standard monster called a [Goblin]. It can’t be helped that they were not a formidable enemy, but because it was his turn, he focused on the enemy.
[Summoning Magic: Dark Knight]
It was one of the first summoning skills he learned, and it was also his favorite armor spirit summoning.
Summoners used artificial spirits that dwelled in objects created by people and natural spirits that came from the natural world.
Although natural spirits were the stronger of them, artificial spirits which dwelled in man-made objects were easier to use and get closer to. [The Dark Knight] he had summoned earlier was the soul of a soldier that had died in the battlefield which was now dwelling in suit of armor.
The spirits who stayed in armor that had been used by a person who fought for themselves became [Dark Knights] while those spirits spirits that dwelled in armor used by those to protect others were called [Holy Knights].
Armor spirits belong to the lower class summoning category. However the Dark Knight that had been continued to be used for convenience gained strength to be comparable to that of a higher class summon.
The grassy place concealed the shining hole, and a knight with a large build gradually rose from it. The jet black armor radiated a cold chill, which shook the body with such an effect as that of a sinister black flame. There was no face, only two red lights which floated in a black space. If one were to look back at night and see such an intimidating thing, a man would scream out and run away.
The sudden materialization of the unfamiliar knight caused the goblins to stop and raise their voice to intimidate it. Here, a sense of incongruity is born again.
For a goblin, to act in such a way should not be possible.
Goblins had always been brave, not knowing their place they would rush to kill whomever approached. Now no matter how you look at it the goblins in front of him were feeling [fear].
However, it was no use worrying about it now, so he gave a cleaning command to the Dark Knight. And that place in the next instant was turned into a slaughter.
Each time the black long sword flew, a storm was stirred and five to six goblins were reduced to chunks of meat scattered about here and there.
The goblin voices of intimidation gradually transformed into shrieks of despair. Though some began to run from this hell, the Black Knight showed no mercy and completed the order for extermination.
The affair lasted for no more than two or three minutes. The wind gently blew over meadow that was now dyed in the blood of monsters, No one would think that the scene stretched before them of the massacre was an illusion.
Were there about 100 goblin corpses scattered about? Little by little, he composed himself in the midst of the scene and reconsidered everything that had caught his attention.
The taste and smell, and then the memory of the goblin’s actions. Is this perhaps……
He arrived at one answer.
Did it finally come?
The third update!
Indeed, I can not believe it immediately in order to reproduce the five senses, research was being carried out on the world-wide level. Though it is unbelievable that such technology would leap ahead to be used in a game, there was no other explanation that made sense.
As one would expect, AEO Arch Earth Online management always surpasses expectations. Most likely, the reason that [falling asleep] did not activate shutdown was because of the version update.
After coming to an understanding, he turns his gaze to the sign that something is approaching the meadow from deep within the forest. He was able to roughly grasp the direction and number because of a skill from his second job [Biological Sensing]. The problem was that it could not distinguish between allies or enemies.
The number which approached numbered around 50. He expected that it was goblin reinforcements.
The Dark Knight stood silently next to Kagami, surrounded by 100 silent bodies. Even 50 goblins from the famous elite unit [Goblin Lance Company] would not be a problem. It was expected that the Nine sages who studied the art of summons thoroughly were hiding their true capabilities.
Gradually the signs grew louder, and the sounds of marching are heard clearly. Goblins do not march in groups and would probably not march in order. If that was true, the possibility that this was not a sign of goblins was true.
Since the subjugation of the demons near the area of the national border was complete, he returned the Dark Knight. At the same time, the vanguard appeared from within the forest.
It was an order of knights. Engraved on their shields was their national coat of arms which showed a large tree with a moon that signaled that they belonged to the [Arkite Kingdom].
It was the Arkite magic knights. They had those characteristic features on their armor and shields.
The armor reflects light like that of a mirror which blended in with the views of the surroundings. The shield boasts a high defense against the breath of monsters. Although it was an elite order among the knights who belonged to the Arkite kingdom, he wondered why they would be this close to the border.
There was little doubt that the person at the head of the vanguard was the Knight commander. The following knights were held back with one hand and he took a step forward. The Knight Commander’s hair was in a swept back style that had a small quantity of white hairs mixed among the black.The many scars on his visage were evidence of his long military service. The red mantle he wore around his back was proof of a commander. He was an austere handsome man.
“This was…… a fierce battle. What on earth happened here? Or did the ojou-chan not see anything?
The commander spoke those words while watching him. From the contents of his speech, and by looking around at the surroundings, he determined that the words were directed at himself.
However the problem was that he was unable to see the spirit. The magician class was able to see spirits, the warrior class was able to see fighting spirit. Even though he was very much a magic knight, a knight was still a knight. It was a warrior class. Danbalf was an elder of the silver linked towers and a summon master; there should not have been a spirit visible to a warrior class that was invisible to him.
“It must have been scary for an ojou-chan to be in such a place as this. It is safe now.”
While saying that, the commander places his hand gently on Kagami’s head.
“Relax, we magic knights have arrived we will ensure your safety.”
Kagami was astonished. Danbalf was created by himself to be a solemn man of about the height of 190 cm. There was no more humiliation than to be treated as a child and comforted.
More than anything, he could not hide his surprise that he was looking up at the commander. When subtracting Danbalf’s height, Is this commander a giant or something? He thought that there was enough of a difference in height to seem so.
And just now, to call Danbalf an ojou-chan.
With a manner full of dignity, he shook off the hand placed on his head and glared at the knight.
“What ojou-chan?, What fool do …… you……..”
“He looked around for the bell-like voice.” Including the captain in front of him, there was no one around that could have a sounded like…… a girl.
“You seem to be upset. Ojou-chan, here have some water. Can you drink?”
Once again saying ojou-chan, the commander held out a leather bag which contained water. His facial expression mirrored the concern Kagami felt in his heart.
No matter how you look at it, to refer to Kagami as an ojou-chan, in addition to commander not seeming to be the type to utter jokes while smiling. Based on the above thinking Kagami lowered his gaze. His eyes were glued to the armor of the commander at the same time.
Again a pretty voice reached his ears.
What kind of joke is this.
The order of magic knights’ official equipment, the clear mirror armor. The surface reflected light like a mirror, it could be said it was already a mirror in itself. His appearance was reflected, when his right hand moved the left hand moved as well. There was no confusion, the girl that was reflected on the armor of the commander matched his actions. It could no longer be called imitation, but the same body.
And that girl had a familiar appearance as well.
The silver hair that came down to her waist, the [strong-willed eyes],the look of innocence about her face and those slightly red cheeks and that tiny nose. Only the equipment that Danbalf was wearing at the time was intact, clearly only the contents had changed.
It was the girl he had built as his ideal woman using the [Vanity Case].
