At least remember to feed me you shitty master!

She Professed Herself The Pupil Of The Wise Man Chapter 18

Chapter 18 Mira learns womanly charms!? Creos is a lolicon!?

Actual Title – Learning a Skill

ED: This chapter was twice as long as a regular chapter, so that’s why it took so long. For those of you asking about the next chapter its about 3x as long so don’t expect it in the near future @.@

“By the way, are thou still using Rairinko as your main?”

Mira could not comprehend all the complaints directed on her past self anymore and to divert him from that topic she mentioned the name of the strongest summon that Creos had.

“Where did you learn about Rairinko? From Dunbalf again?”

“Ah.. Yes.”

At this point Mira gave up and decided to attribute all knowledge to her master.

“Oh, that is quite embarrassing. Looks like he talked a lot about me.”

“Yes, I learned a lot.”

Creos happily smiled at that. Despite all his grumbling, all the complaints came from his respect and affection for Dunbalf. Creos was happy that this wise man talked so much about him with a pupil.

“Just like you heard I am still using Rairinko mainly but this Rairinko became much stronger since that time.

“That surely sounds promising.”

Rairinko was ranked in the upper-middle range amongst summons. Having even more strength should make it a reliable battle force.

“Making a contract with Rairinko was really hard. And this Dunbalf, you know…”

At this time Creos started a passionate speech about how great the wise man Dunbalf was. Honestly, he was dragged along only because he was handy but when Creos told his impressions like “When he did it for me that time” and “It was a great lesson for me”, Mira, being affected by an awkward feeling of guilt, was busy by just silently sitting there with a fixed expression. Occasionally she responded with aizuchi.

“Being trained by that now I am managing the Tower instead of Dunbalf.”

Satisfied, Creos nodded with a feeling of accomplishment ending his long story. Although for Mira this story, despite having some nostalgic scenes, was mostly an epic saga about Dunbalf from the standpoint of Creos.

After that Mira at last brought up her doubt from the time she went into the Tower of Summoners.

“By the way, when I stopped at the Towers, the Tower of Summoners was utterly deserted compared to the Tower of Magic. Had anything happened with it?”

“Eh… You surely stick it where it hurts. Yes, right now number of summoners is extremely low.”

“So, its just like I thought.”

At the time she visited the Tower night hours could serve as an excuse but after getting the confirmation it was clear that the Tower of Summoners faced a shortage of people. Looking down in sorrow, Mira remembered the old times and began to feel she must do something about it.

“I guess that as a pupil of Dunbalf, your made your first contract through the same method, right?”

To overcome the struggle with the first contract Dunbalf spammed potions and all the available bombs. But Mira knew that Creos was talking about another method. As the Elder, she developed it herself to help her juniors at the Tower.

“Hmm. You mean using refined equipment and sealed blasting gems, right?”

“Yes, this one. Some time after the disappearance of Dunbalf we still continued to complete our contracts but shortly we ran out of the the sealed blasting gems and then our refined equipment broke… Even refiners from the palace could not make such high-class tools as Dunbalf and that is how the first unable to complete contract people appeared.”

“That makes sense.”

The method Mira developed then was similar to spamming consumables but was tuned up for better efficiency.
Potions were substituted with a refined equipment to greatly increase stamina and instead of bombs, it used sealed blasting gems with the element that was strong against the target. It made drastic difference in the difficulty of completing the first contract. But because of the dependence on Dunbalf, after his disappearance they could not continue using this method.
Even though there was a handful of refiners, time and labor costs made the price of supplies to go through the roof. It quickly became beyond the means of the new summoners.

And without help from the absolute charisma of the Elder, the Tower of Summoners became deserted.

“Fine, then for a meantime…”

Lifting her face, Mira reached for her sealed blasting gems from the inventory. Picking up the scattering stones from the floor, she offered them to Creos.

“I think it’s enough to defeat the opponents for about 20 people.”

“Tho…Those are the sealed blasting gems!? And that grade… It is the same as 30 years before… No, even higher… Is it really fine for me to accept that?”

“Yeah, it’s all I can do right now.”

“But haven’t you got all that stones from Dunbalf for self-defense?”

(Indeed, it could be used for that.)

The sealed blasting gems could be used as a trump card in emergency cases. Assuming that Dunbalf gave stones to his pupil for defense could be a reason why Creos hold his craving back.

“It’s not a big deal. I’ve got the Dark Knight from the master. And if he was here, he could not ignore the situation with the Tower too.”

“That obsessed with summoning Dunbalf certainly would not accept the current state of things at the Tower.”

Muttering that, Creos accepted the sealed blasting gems from Mira.

“Thanks you. Thank you, Mira. As soon as possible I will tell it to all newcomers who gave up on summoning.”

A grin covered the young-looking face of Creos.

Being frustrated with the state of things at the Tower, Creos himself was constantly trying to do something. But even though several people recently finally managed to make the contract, his methods still were full of problems and they couldn’t fully resolve this situation.
As a result, young people who wished to become summoners left the Tower with their dreams shattered. For Creos, who saw their backs, those sealed blasting gems were worth more than 100-carat diamonds.

“Yeah, do it please. Also, accept this too.”

Understanding his devotion to the Tower, Mira decided to make one more farewell gift to Creos who already lost himself in delight.

She took a ring and a necklace from herself and offered to Creos.

“That is…”

“This equipment increases physical strength and power. It should be enough to stand on equal footing against a low-ranked opponent.”

“Is it really fine to accept such valuable things?”

“It definitely is. If my master wants to protect something, I would support that feeling too. In return I’m entrusting the Tower to you, Creos.”

“Putting the honor of the vice-elder at stake, I will do everything for prosperity of the Tower!”

Being in euphoria, he nodded, looking into the eyes of Mira with a strong shine in his eyes.

“Then we are conducting the second stage of the experiment at the same time five days later.”

Solomon closed the meeting with that words. Nobles and vice-elders left the development room with salutations.

“Seems like it’s over. Good bye, Mira-chan and thank to you. I should tell everyone as soon as I can. Looks like I’ll become really busy.”

“Sure, take care.”

After a a deep bow Creos hurried to follow everyone. His steps became light and rest vice-elders, noticing that, tenderly looked at his back in surprise.
It was not a secret for them that Creos was worried about his Tower but, having their hands full with their our Towers, they couldn’t offer much help. Considering how often Creos was gloom until now, it was a long time since he was in such high spirits.

It obviously was caused by the new hope for the Tower of Summoners but, without knowing it, rest vice-elders assumed that the talk with Mira caused Creos, who had a love for children, to have a good mood.

“Well, it’s already time for dinner.”

“What are we having tonight?”

The discussion between Solomon and Luminaria made Mira to wonder how luxurious a meal is for a ruler of the country.

“Can I join you?”, she asked turning her face back.

“Of course. We were going to invite you anyway. There is still a lot things to talk about.”

“Mira-chan, you can look forward to it. You surely never had such feast before.”

“That sounds great.”

Holding the extremely transformed robots in her hands Mira became even more jovial at those words.
Then Luminaria noticed that squatting Mira was rustling something. Luminaria quietly approached and peeked at her hands with a grin.

“What’s the hell is it?”

Witnessing clusters of a weird form, Luminaria instantly blurted in her original tone and, bringing her face closer, fixed her eyes at an object in hands of Mira.

“A combining robot as thou can see! I almost combined it, wait a bit.”

Mira with a child-like smile, no, with a genuine child smile, was happily transforming the robot like an absorbed himself little boy.

“Oh, what going on here?”

Worrying about them, the chief of development — Thomas — came near and saw the reason they sat down there.

“Ah, the ‘Hyper Combining Lord Vulcan’? Where did you find it?”

“It was laying somewhere on that shelf.”

Mira pointed at a shelf in front with a finger.

“That’s where it was. I already considered it lost.”

Thomas nostalgically looked at the muddle in her hands.

“So, it means they are thine?”

“Rather than that being mine, it is made by me.”

“Oh! So thou have a pretty good hobby.”

“It already became my work. And although I tried my best, it is a failed work: due to a design error it does not combine.”

“What… did….thou… say..?”

At his last words Mira awkwardly turned back with a disbelieving expression and stared at Thomas, who was trying to disguise his embarrassment with a smile.

“Yo..you see, when I made this combining mechanism, the width was a little bit off. Fixing it requires disassembling the whole thing so I put it aside to fix later and then I accidentally lost it.”

Due to face so angry he couldn’t possibly think is possible for that cute girl, Thomas, stuttering in his answer, slowly lowered his body.

“What did thou saaayy!!”

This scream was heard outside of the room.

Thomas, feeling relieved after somehow managing to calm Mira down with a promise to gift it after fixing, received the Hyper Combining Lord Vulcan.

Grumbling about the lost time Mira got up and instantly frowned in response to a certain unexpected sensation. Yes, a common physiological phenomenon.

Mira turned around and was already ready to ask for the directions but stopped for a second.

In a basement of unknown castle it’s faster to ask if you don’t know the location. But the thing she was going to ask would certainly light a strange sparkle in the faces of Solomon and Luminaria. She knew their personalities too well.

Nonetheless, trying to find it without any hints could lead to the worst situation. That’s why Mira quietly brought her face to ear of Thomas.

“Where is the nearest toilet?”, she whispered. But she picked the wrong person. Hearing her, Thomas pointed at a door.

“Well, you need to exit here, then go to the right until the end and then it will be near when you turn left.”

Thomas without any delicacy taught the location of toilet with big gestures. Of course, Solomon and Luminaria knew about a toilet in that direction. In other words, they immediately understood what Mira sought from his words.

Mira, obviously exposed to their looks, rushed out of the development room.

Getting to the toilet with the taught directions at full speed, Mira stopped her movement before two entrances. The labels “Men” and “Women” near them blocked her path like a barrier.

After a little confusion Mira made up her mind and walked to the women toilet. She was grinning a bit but she hasn’t noticed that.
However, a woman dressed in a white robe suddenly appeared from the door. Assaulted with a feeling a guilt, Mira recklessly changed her course and crashed into a wall.

“Ah! Are you okay? Wait, you are Mira! Mira the pupil of Dunbalf, right!?”

The woman, holding dizzy Mira, quickly recognized her. An impressive entirely covered with ribbons robe, long shining silver hair. It was impossible to forget that cheeky yet cute as a doll face.

“Going to the toilet? Are you fine alone? Do you need help?”

The adorableness of Mira almost made this woman in a white robe unable to control herself. But no matter how you look at it, this attitude looked like caring about a precious little sister.

“I’m fine. I can do it alone.”

Escaping from her hands, Mira jumped into the women toilet.

“Oops, I entered here”, muttered Mira with unclear emotions in this space, unusually filled with individual stalls only. Then, pushed by irreversibly increasing sensations in her abdomen, she opened a door of a stall.

After completing the task, Mira smile stayed before the sink. She washed hands, repeatedly nodding to herself “I grew a little bit more.” Then, looking around for something to wipe hands, she saw the reflection of a girl in a mirror right in front of her.

Gazing at that figure, she muttered “I am so cute ♪.”

The first time when Mira saw herself was on the reflection of light on the armor of magic knights. The second time was in a window glass dyed with the night. A large proper mirror specially made to reflect a figure reflected her charm much more clearly, to the point she became enchanted with her prettiness.

Unable to find any towels at all, Mira wiped her hands with the sleeves of her robe and, looking at the mirror, absent-mindlessly touched her face. Following her chin, she moved her fingers from her  lips to the back of her neck and lightly stroked the beautifully swaying silver hair.

“Welcome to this side of the world. I’m greeting you.”

Foolishly immersed in her own world Mira abruptly stood up straight and turned her face to the atmospheric female voice.

Triumphantly grinning Luminaria was there.

“Since when have you been here?”

“I am so cute 💛.”

Mira instantly charged with a 【Xian・Step: Gap Closer】but Luminaria vanished in air like a phantom and opened the distance.

“Whoa, what was that. I haven’t seen that movement before.”

Mira was attracted to that vanishing-like strange movement. She didn’t know of any skill producing a similar effect.

“While you went missing, progress was not limited to the magical engineering. It was a whole thirty years, battle skills rapidly advanced with each day too.”

Luminaria with her skill vanished and reappeared repeatedly like a phantom. Looking at that, Mira completely forgot about her recent embarrassment and filled her thoughts with that new skill.

“It is an evading skill developed a little over eight years ago, 【Mirage Step】. The effect is, well, you can see it yourself.”

While saying that, Luminaria repeated moving leaving phantom shadows.

“The requirements for learning it are: having mana and acquiring the blessings of both light and water I believe.”

“Oh! Then I can learn it too, right? Teach me it!”

Hearing that she already meets the requirement, Mira urged Luminaria.

Eh-? What should I do-? Should I simply teach a product of long history for free~”

Luminaria displayed a hesitating appearance. He, no, she already knew since those days about Mira’s remarkable obsession with skills.

“Fine then, Solomon should know it too anyway.”

Mira flew past Luminaria with those words when she was called out from behind.

“What do you think this is?”

Turning her face back at this voice, Mira saw a single book Luminaria got from the inventory. The cover said “Encyclopedia of skills, 2146 year edition”.

“Ca.. can it be..”

An encyclopedia of skills, a large best-seller bursting with a countless amount of skills of a great variety made with a publication skill. Of course Mira, being obsessed with skills, had one too but it was “Encyclopedia of skills, 2116 year edition”, out of date by 30 years in this world.

It was no wonder that Mira couldn’t take her eyes off from that book. In the four years of official service players discovered lots of skills. Considering 30 years of development, the amount of knowledge in that book should  be immeasurable.

“There aren’t many publishers now so you can’t buy that book no matter how much you pay. What if I said I’m going to give it to you?”

“What do you want?”

Mira made a point blank question. This book was just a bunch of already known instructions for Luminaria but she understood how attractive it is for Mira. If Luminaria brought it here, there is no way she could give it for free. It was obvious after her recent over-emphatic words.

“I’m glad you are understanding it. Don’t worry, it is not that hard for you. I heard from Solomon that you are going to look for those guys. I want you to get two items for me along the way.”

“So, what are they?”

“The first one is a sword of the Crimson Lotus King.”

“Hmm. It’s quite rare. Although it’s not unobtainable at all. But it’s the same for thou as well. There is no need to specially ask me, right?

“Like you know, I can’t move from this country now. Putting aside the Accord Cannon, if I happen to cross the border, it can provoke other countries. You know, I’m famous here.”

Telling that, Luminaria puffed out her abundant chest and boldly smiled, lifting the edges of her mouth.

“That makes sense. It was quite realistic even then. And now it became a true reality. Indeed, in that situation it’s easier for me to move.”

“Yes, that’s why I’m begging you. Do it and this book is yours.”

“Well, why not. But even if thou try to hold a sword, isn’t magic faster and stronger? And why do thou need the charcoal? I believe it was an alchemical material. Thou said that being a jack of all trades doesn’t suit thou, right?

“Well, I don’t care about the original purpose. It’s just a catalyst for me.”

Luminaria is a sorcerer. The best one. No matter how rare is it, a sword of the Crimson Lotus King shows true value only in the hands of high-level swordsmen. Sorcerers can’t handle it. For a simple flame element attack the 【Sorcery: Double Blaze】 is way more efficient. And considering that Luminaria is bad at delicate work, she never cared about alchemy so the need for material of the concealed  stone of purification — charcoal of the World Tree — is unclear.

“Catalyst means… a catalyst for learning a spell?”

“Yes. A while ago I found a pentagram I have never seen before. When I did analysis, I found that it requires that two items as a catalyst.”

“Those thirty years were amazing if even new skills appeared. Wait, thou just said ‘analysis’? What is that, the catalyst for sorcery was supposed to be found by burning everything thou could think about so how did thou learned about this catalyst?”

“Well, there is a new skill advanced from the Judgement — the 【Expert Analysis】. Of course it’s written in this book too.”

Saying that, Luminaria brought the book to Mira’s face. Mira faster than the eyes could see grabbed at the phantom with her hands.

“No way…”

“You are the same as thirty years ago. It’s thirty years too early for you to win against me. So, what is your decision? I will give this book to you if you bring the catalyst to me.”

“I’m accepting it.”

Luminaria having jumped with Mirage Step to Mira’s back spoke. Turning around to Luminaria, Mira answered with a glint in eyes.

“But I have one condition.”

“What? Travel expenses or tools for it? Solomon should prepare such stuff.”

“No, just teach me how to use this phantom.”

Mira looked up at Luminaria with her eyes full of hope. Despite her experience, that look startled Luminaria a bit.

“You’re quite good at abusing your appearance. Well, why not. I’ll teach you as an advance pay.” TL : {about the upward glance, the uwamezukai (western version) — is here an English word for it —  extremely feminine pose. Printed edition explicitly says something like ‘mastered the use of female body’ here and that Mira is doing uwamezukai pose slightly before (previous sentence here, print edition has some stuff in between). Can you do something with it and previous sentence if it’s not clear enough? Without a translator note if it is possible.}—–ED: I’ll think of something…. — TL: tried to do something with it. I think it’s hard but can you try to describe a typical for child/woman pose for begging for whatever  in previous sentence if it’s unclear? Though it should work anyway. Also, I’d remove this picture from the translation but if you really think it’s a good idea, do whatever you wish. The point is, Mira begs for that in the uwamezukai pose (without intention, just due to difference in height) and this combination is considered as really cute for girls (at least in Japan). Luminaria compliments on that. Do TN note/whatever if it’s unclear and we can’t do anything without it. ——-ED: I’m leaving this here for an explanation on our thought processes. Lol.

That’s how the training session of makeshift maidens began in the women’s toilet.

    Isn’t the english equivalent “puppy eyes” or something?
    Granted, it looses a lot of the “female” infelction, but that’s the closest equivalent in english I can think of. And as long as the “begging” aspect is preserved, it should be good enough, shouldn’t it?
