Chapter of the week: 3/4
Editor: Kenny Stryker
(ED: Shout out to ThyUnsuspicious. I’ve been waiting for this chapter for so long. Patience has finally paid it off.)
In the final stage of summer when the heat still didn’t show a sign of abating, our summer vacation was approaching its end and most of the students were busy doing their homework.
“Eating cold food in summer is the best.”
“It was so delicious.”
Saya, Lina, and Karen were having a pleasant conversation as they walked their way through the residential area. They ate some cold sweets in a store they visited while shopping in a mall and now they were on their way back home. Personally, I didn’t want to leave my room, but I couldn’t refuse them when they asked me to go out.
“By the way, it’s been a while since the last time we met you, Lina-chan. Where did you go?”
“I go to train herself in the Heavens these holidays. I had been feeling incompetent recently, so I wanted to get a little stronger.”
So that’s why I didn’t see her around this summer.
“Well, I’m still far away from reaching a certain someone’s level.”
“Don’t look at me while saying that.”
Lina spoke while giving me an envious stare. She chose the wrong person to compare herself with. I mean, I level up very quickly.
“Ah, Kamiya Yato, take this.”
Seeming to have recalled something, she took out a crystal from her pocket and handed it to me.
“What is this marble?”
“This is a【Concealing Crystal】. It’s a first-class item that blocks your enemy from appraising your stats and it can’t be detected by any skill. You just have to use activate it as a skill by pouring your magic in it.”
I lifted the【Concealing Crystal】towards the sunlight and took a closer look at it.
“I’m happy that you’re giving it to me, but, will I get a chance to use it?”
“Didn’t you learn anything from your experience until now? You should never let your information leak to the enemy.”
She’s absolutely right. Well, there’s always the chance that I’d end up in a situation where I get my status examined, so it wouldn’t hurt to have it with me.
“Yeah, you’re right.”
I received the crystal gratefully and tried pouring my magic in it. When I did, it started to gradually change its color.
“I just poured magic in it.”
“What a beautiful color.”
Karen and Saya gazed at the【Concealing Crystal】with a subtle face.
“Mine is red, by the way.”
“They’re not the same color?”
“Yeah. Although the difference doesn’t have any meaning.”
Is that so? Lina explained as she showed me her【Concealing Crystal】.
“It’s a bit late, but, is it fine if I get to take it?”
“It’s fine. Everyone in the Heavens has one.”
I remember when Scala told me that I can’t appraise a God’s stats. I wonder if they are using this crystal.
“Scala told me that it’s impossible to appraise a God’s stats. Is that true?”
“What is that? Never heard of it. She was probably lying to you.”
That woman. How was she able to tell such a lie in the middle of that serious situation. I felt an indescribable irritation as I tightly grasped the crystal. Unforgivable…
“A-Anyway, that soft ice cream was so delicious on this hot day.”
Saya tried to change the topic by bringing back the talk about the ice cream.
“A normal ice cream would taste better in this time of the day.”
“I bet shaved ice would taste the best.”
Lina and Karen apparently had something to say about the topic and started up an argument.
“Eeh? Soft ice cream is best. Don’t you find it pleasant for the tongue?”
“A slightly harder and colder ice cream is better than something that is soft and tender.”
“Shaved ice cream is a standard for summer. The way it immediately melts in your mouth makes it number one.”
The debate continued and I kept watching them from the sidelines explaining the merits of their favorite ice cream without giving an ear to each other. There isn’t really a difference between the three for me. Deciding to not enter the conversation, I looked up to the sky and uttered carefreely to myself on how the weather was hot, but a short while later, I got forcibly dragged to the conversation.
“What do you think, Yato-kun? You’re in the soft ice cream team, right? You even ate it with me earlier.”
“No, he is in the normal ice cream team.”
“As his sister, I know well that he likes shaved ice cream the best.”
Honestly, I don’t care which one is the best. But of course, I couldn’t say that as a reply and kept thinking of a way to end this argument peacefully. I chose to eat soft ice cream earlier just because I was in the mood for it anyway.
“… They are all the same, no?”
In the end, I ended up speaking what was on my mind. Maybe it’s because of this hot weather that I end up slipping my tongue. The three of them got a little mad at me for not returning the reply they were expecting for. Just how am I supposed to answer them now? This is a little annoying. Before I thought of a new reply, they already forgot about me and resumed their argument.
Ah, when will something happen so they can move on to another topic…
As I listened to them, they decided to compare their favorite ice creams by tasting each one of them. For me, I’d like it if they went back to their home and let me enjoy the rest of my summer. I thought to myself casually and continued to walk, when suddenly… the sky got wrapped in a red color.
“What’s going on?”
The sky changed from its blue color to a faint and transparent reddish color.
Even Saya and the other two had to halt their conversation to this unexplainable occurrence. Something really did happen to make them change the topic. I found it funny how my wish got granted this easily, but I soon realized something about the red sky.
It was something like a barrier; similar to the one that was used in Souki’s sealing area. If so, then who did it? I can’t sense any strange presence nearby. Simultaneously as I started wondering who might be behind this occurrence, I heard a voice answering me.
“So you are Kamiya Yato.”
It was the voice of a man. I looked around me to find where he was hiding, though he soon showed up in front of me with a group of people wearing armors and walked in my direction.
“I immediately knew your location since you’re releasing an abnormal amount of magic.”
Their numbers were around 30. The handsome guy who was standing before them all glared at me.
“Just… Who are you?”
I felt like I had already seen him somewhere, but I can’t remember. The man apparently wasn’t waiting for me to ask that question as he seemed confused at first, but he went back to glare at me right away.
“Well, we forgot about you too. So that’s fine, let me introduce myself then.”
The man took a deep breath then continued with a loud voice.
“My name is Tenjouin Hikaru and we are your former classmates who were summoned to another world!”
Tenjouin Hikaru? Was there someone with that name…
I mean, I wasn’t really that sociable with my classmates at that time so I wouldn’t know who they are just by hearing their name. Unable to remember, I stayed quiet while searching my memories when suddenly, I heard Lina speaking.
“Aah!! I remember, it’s them.”
“You know about them, Lina?”
“They are the Earthlings that were sent to another world by Metron-sama. There is no doubt about it. Rather, why aren’t you able to remember them!?”
“Well, I didn’t really care about what happened to them after they left this world, so…”
Hearing my natural answer, Line let out a sigh and held her head. Even Saya and Karen were saying something like as if it can’t be helped, as if they have already given up on me. The way they said it was a little harsh, but I’m glad that they understand me very well. I don’t want any confusions anyway.
“… So, can I continue what I was saying?”
Tenjouin politely waited for us to finish our conversation then asked for the permission to talk. He wasn’t glaring at me anymore. Maybe it’s because he stopped feeling nervous.
“Yeah, sure. But before you do…”
I halted my words and shifted a sharp gaze to Tenjouin. After receiving my gaze, Tenjouin got nervous again and slightly put on his guard.
“W-What is it…”
“… Don’t you guys feel embarrassed by the clothes you are wearing?”
“!!? These clothes are normal on the other side!!”
I wanted to make this remark from the start. If someone were to see them wearing those armors and weird clothes, they would get immediately uploaded on the internet. Tenjouin who realized that his nervousness was meaningness felt embarrassed and yelled at me with a reddish face.
“Tenjouin-kun, please calm down.”
“Ah, yeah. I’m sorry…”
He then cooled down after the girl next to him, who looked to be a magician, soothed him. Anyway, guess it’s time…
“I know. Karen, Saya, moved behind me.”
Lina seemed to get what I was going to say as she promptly asked Karen and Saya to move behind her. It was nice to talk with my former classmates a little bit, but sadly they seem to be quite hostile towards us. After all, they already started preparing to attack while we were talking. Their number is, eight. The formation they took wasn’t bad and their teamwork was steady. Their total number is 38. I remember that my class in middle school had 40 members, but whatever. I composed myself and looked at Tenjouin before I spoke.
“Was it you who made this barrier thing?”
I asked him while pointing at the barrier above my head.
“That’s right. With this barrier, nobody can enter or leave and nobody who’s unrelated would get harmed or involved.”
So their only aim is me, huh. Such an admirable attitude to not harm ordinary people.
“And so, what do my former classmates want for from me?”
I’m sure the answer wouldn’t be anything of decency. Watching me asking him with a nonchalant attitude, Tenjouin calmed down and replied to me with a strong tone.
“We came back to Earth in order to defeat you, Kamiya Yato! That was the order of Metron-sama!”
What if Tenjouin and his classmates teleported in the middle of a town.
“Hm? We’re on Earth?”
“I think we did it, Tenjouin-kun.”
“Yeah, we did it!”
“Hey, look at them.”
“That’s weird cosplay. Is there some event happening nearby?”
“Not sure. This group cosplay thing is starting to get popular.”
“… Hey, Tenjouin-kun.”
“Don’t say it. You will have a heartbreak if you do.”
“I want to go back to the kingdom.”
