The written exam was completed without any problems.
However, it seems that Efa was not.
“What should I do, Seika-kun. Maybe I made a mistake …”
“Hmm … I have no choice but to recover with practical skills.”
Comforting Efa with teary eyes.
“Uh, I studied so much …”
Even so, the preparation period was only half a year.
This is all I can do.
The venue for the practical test was outside.
Six stone plates are lined up in front of the examinee.
“Aim at that target and shoot magic.”
Round glasses examiner explains.
“From the left, fire, soil, water, wind, light, and darkness are arranged in this order. Please choose the target of your favorite attribute. You can add as many points as you like, so it is better to challenge as much as possible. However, please do not attack with different attributes, as the magic circle with resistance will not work and will be damaged. “
So that’s it.
Can you challenge without worrying about failure? It’s a good exam.
“Burning is red! Flame heat and sulfur-producing spirit, roar and make that angry fireball,Flame bullet!! “
“It’s yellow to pop! I’m nurturing, crush it and make it its angry gravel,Stone gravel!! “
“The spring is blue! The spirit of cold springs and ice and rain, freeze and do with that angry white spear,White ice spear!! “
It had already started next door.
Everyone is chanting spells vigorously, but most of them choose only one attribute.
The result is also delicate.
It seems that Luft and Gly, who had been learning non-chanting and multi-attributes around this time, were actually excellent.
“Oh, it’s my turn. I’m going, Seika-kun.”
“Oh, do your best”
Efa comes forward.
Looking at the level around me, I think the practical skill is okay.
At that time, red hair was reflected at the edge of the field of vision.
The child named Amu was at the test site next door.
It seems that the turn is still ahead, but what about the ability? It was said that all attributes were …
Or rather, is it the sword that is hung on that waist?
What kind of child is …?
When I was wondering, the hot air slightly stroked my cheeks.
Efa holding a cane in front of her.
The examiner and everyone else is stunned to see it.
“What, what is the current flame?” “Flame halberdOr …? “Medium magic?” “It was a non-chanting.” “Hey, look at the target.”
If you look closely, the corners of the stone plate will melt a little and become glassy.
Efa bows to the examiner.
“I’m sorry. I don’t think it will melt …”
“No, no … it can’t be helped …”
The examiner with round glasses bends his head and mutters strangely, saying that it is a target for fire attributes.
“May I go next?”
Seeing the nodding examiner, Efa walks to the next three targets.
The target of the wind attribute.
In front of that, Efa holds the cane again.
A gust of wind blew.
The wind that hurt my ears due to the difference in air pressure hits the target.
With a plosive sound, I smashed the stone board as it was.
A quiet test site.
After a while, I heard the sound of the upper half of the stone plate falling somewhere.
“U …Wind spearThat’s medium magic, isn’t it? “” Chanting medium magic without chanting “” That, reallyWind spearIs it? “Target, it’s broken, but what should I do?”
“And be quiet! Everyone is quiet!”
“Oh, that’s all for me. I’m sorry for the target. Thank you.”
Efa bows down and runs to me.
“Well, Seika-kun. I didn’t get it right, but … it doesn’t mean I’m not going to fail, isn’t it? It’s the result of my hard work …”
“Wind! It’s amazing! What’s wrong?”
“I was practicing little by little. I was surprised by Seika.”
“I was surprised. Now I can use spirits. What are the other attributes?”
“I haven’t done it yet. There were many green children in the mansion, so I was brought in a lot. Also, I think it was because I had the aptitude for the wind attribute. I just knew.”
No, it’s kind of moody.
When I suddenly realize the growth of my disciples, I feel like this …
“But the other kids are gathering little by little. I rarely see the kids of light and darkness, but otherwise I can ask you soon …, Seika-kun, are you crying?”
“Well, I’m not crying. I’m not crying. Ah … Efa. To say one thing, thatWind spearI can’t see it. Because the real thing is weaker “
“You don’t have to worry about it. Efa can be stronger.”
Previous lifeElementalorsBecause it wasn’t like that.
“Well, please ask everyone. There was a slight accident, but the test will continue. The target is preparing a reserve, so if you want the wind attribute, please give up the order. One “
While being sent off by Efa, he steps forward.
“First with fire”
Stand in front of the target and casually hold a cane.
The fact that you are not required to destroy it means that the power is appropriate.
Let’s get it done quickly.
A weak “Onibi” hit the stone board and the blue flame burst.
This is fine, isn’t it?
“blueFlame bullet!! ?? “Hey, the fire won’t go out.” “The magic circle with resistance attributes isn’t working, isn’t it?” “Wait, he must have had no magical power in the lamp rogue …”
“Next, in the soil”
Tell the examiner who is disappointed and move to the front of the target.
What should I do?
Others used to fly stones, but there’s no way they can do that.
If it’s a technique like that … <<Key stone》 Is too far. 《Iron》 And 《Iwato Throw》 cannot be used in such a place …
Wait, that stone board–GraniteIs it?
Alright, I decided.
Hold a cane.
What should I do with the name of the technique? Well it’s appropriate.
“Soon … somehow”
《Phase of earth and gold ――――MoneyArt of”
With a buzzing sound.
Five or six huge golden cubes grew out of the stone plate.
Naturally, the target has been destroyed from the inside.
“I’m sorry I broke it. Then, next time with water.”
“No, no, wait a minute!”
Stopped by a round glasses examiner.
“You, what’s the magic right now …?”
“Oh, I’m sorry. I’ll go next.”
I walk next to him.
“What kind of magic is it now …?” “Well, the target is from the inside …” “…” “…” “…”
The back was also quiet.
Thank you. I don’t want to be told to explain.
That cube is pyrite.
It is a golden mineral known to scatter sparks when struck, but it also has the characteristic of forming beautiful cubic crystals.
If you pour gold and earth into the seeds inside the rock, it will push away the surroundings and crystallize according to the pattern, breaking the rock like that.
Granite is a stone made by solidifying lava. I thought there would be iron and sulfur as seeds, but as expected.
It was a technique I made for civil engineering work, but it was useful for the first time.
“So, water …”
Others used to fly icicles, but of course there’s no such thing as a trivial technique.
Is that okay? The scale is large, so let’s use human backlash for the time being.
Shake the cane to show it.
“I love you … somehow”
《Phase of negative water ――――Ice waterfallArt of”
A large amount of water, such as the tsunami, was released from the invisible human backlash.
The water that had been overcooled due to the shade was frozen by the impact of hitting the stone plate.
It chained in a blink of an eye, and the tremendous amount of water turned into ice in an instant.
Ah … the darkness at both ends and the target of the fire are frozen because it’s flowing around …
It was a little too much.
“Somehow … I’m sorry. That’s all for me. I think this will melt soon.”
“…” “…” “…” “…” “…”
There is no word for the ice-covered test site anymore.
I return my heels.
“I’m home, Efa. Let’s go home.”
“Uh … yeah. Did you like the other attributes?”
“I could only do three things.”
wind iswood,fire,soil,Money,waterIt’s not in the five lines, and I don’t really understand light and darkness.
In the first place, it seems that I can’t use this magic.
I’ve been trying it for years, but it’s no good. After all, magical power and magical power may be different things.
There is no big problem because you can use onmyodo.
As far as I can see around me, I think I can pass this exam normally.
“Everyone was surprised to see Seika-kun’s magic … I felt a little better.”
* The art of money
A technique for growing pyrite crystals and breaking rocks with iron from gold and sulfur from soil. Pyrite is a golden mineral also called “Fool’s Gold” and shows hexahedral, octahedral, and regular dodecahedron crystal forms. It seems that its existence was known at least around the 1st century AD, and it was described as a stone that sparks when hit in the “Natural History” of Pliny the Elder.
* The art of ice waterfall
A technique to freeze a subject by releasing a large amount of water that has been supercooled by the shade. Yin Qi controls negative energy. Supercooled water has the property of rapidly freezing with impact. The temperature of water is about -40 degrees Celsius, because that is the limit temperature for supercooling. Theoretically, it can be cooled as a liquid, but in that case, it becomes a state close to glass called amorphous ice, and it is difficult to use after all, so the main character suppresses it at this level.
