Chapter 5: Baptism of lazer
For a moment, after he got back to his room. Once again he got called, the destination of the guide was the dining hall.
One long table. There are chairs which are surrounding the long table. Somehow, they’re using the bare minimum furniture, and used their utmost effort to put it in order so it look splendor, that’s how they organized it.
It can’t be helped. Currently there are a shortage of goods.
Even so, the lace of the tablecloth seems to be first-class goods, and the food that was prepared on the table is also luxurious.
Certainly they must have tried to welcome them with their up most effort.
Ikemen and Yankee had already came and sat down on a chair. Yaa~, the one who raised his hand and greeted to the direction of Isagi was Ikemen. Just seeing that face make Isagi feel a little relieved. Isagi then sat down at the place near the middle of the table.
Isagi sitting across diagonally from his seat.
The one who arrived late to the room was Eyeglasses
After looking around the room for a moment, He went to the opposite of Yankee, who sat at the edge of the table, —– he then took a seat exactly on the diagonal edge of the table .
The Demon lord’s candidate, once again four of them were assemble, or such a thing.
Before long the maids came in bringing foods.
Although Isagi was quite worried about the fact that the food was demon food. But somehow, it seems that the eating habit of the demons at this place is no different from Isagi and the others.
Rye bread with a lot of baking powder, with a thin soup. Salad with vegetables which he has never seen before. After the appetizer, some kind of meat saute was lined up.Each of the foods had good taste If one didn’t mind its shape,then it’s quite edible.
(…. Yep, it’s really similar with the thing which I ate in this world )
Though it will become a bit difficult for a person who just got a trip to another world. Even so, it’s a thing which Isagi already got used to.
Or rather than all the things he ate during his adventure, everything served on the top of the plate is hundreds of times better. He can say that this is a first-class meal. But, speaking of the other people.
The one who was eating without minding anything is Yankee.
Once, after eyeglasses sipped the soup a little, he didn’t touch anything other than that.
Ikemen was slowly putting the bread into his mouth.
Due to the difference in taste Ikemen frowned a bit. He then mutters to Isagi.
[You’re, awesome huh]
Griping the fork, he raise his face.
[Even though in this kind of circumtance, you able to eat properly]
[Ah, th, that’s right eh]
Is it perhaps unnatural.
Ikemen seems to be composed, but as expected deep inside he is also seems to be in ruin too. Seeming like an excuse, adding one thing to another.
[U, umm. You know, even though I look like this I can almost eat aything. My house is poor. When you can eat you must eat, that became our family motto]
[Is that so, it’s amazing he~….]
[No no it’s not something really amazing. It’s just that I an prominently gluttonous you know]
[Including that too, I think you’re awesome you know]
Ikemen was looking at Isagi with a look of respect. Such kind of reaction, somehow even now he thought of it as something fresh.
Yankee and Eyeglasses sank into silence. As always, the mood is heavy. Even though around them there were several maids standing, but all of them had erased their presence, and blended into the background just like a doll.
[How should I say it, it feels like we are still inside a dream right]
Ikemen make a bitter smile.
He vaguely nod his head. Actually it was a big lie. Actually he already became this world’s inhabitant a long time ago.
[You know, I was thinking of going to the club, but then I had a thought of going to the toilet for a moment. When I was turning at the corner, I suddenly my chest began to feel a lot of pain.} Then when I realize was I already here, or so he said. As everyone heard about it, it’s quite pitiful.
[Asaura-kun how did you get here?]
[For me, I was studying at the library]
By the way it was same thing that happened 3 years ago. At that time he was at his second year in middle school.
[And thus as expected, my chest became painful. Then when I realized, I was already here]
[Both of us, wondering what’s will happen from now on right. Though they call us as Demon Lords]
[You’re right. Though I think it would be good if this didn’t become something too dangerous]
[I wonder why they picked us. Isn’t it better for them to summon someone like a karate master or someone from military right?]
[Haha, you’re right]
As they able to laugh together like that
Eyeglasses vacantly muttered.
[I want to return…..]
With just that few words, the mood that already raised vanished.
(Aah …. This became a downer again)
It seems like only around him the gloom is deep. At the opposite side of that seat.
[Really, it’s bad if we can’t get back I said] – Yankee
Though he has a totally different atmosphere, Yankee got irritated. An “irritated” mood came from both sides of the room. Just like Othello, it even felt like this side is also about to get flipped over.
And then suddenly. Yankee kick the table.
[How can I bear to stay in this place forever. Damn it] – Yankee
Even though he is supposed just a normal person, that even make Isagi jolt a little. If Dyutyu were to speak to him right now, I wonder if she will faint or not. To the extent such a useless concern floated in his head.
[Uum, though they said that they will give explanation to us, but it seems the people from before are still not coming here …. haha]
Ikemen mutter it with touching effort. Trying to speak to him even at this kind moment. He’s the incarnation of communication skill. At this kind of time someone must help him right.
[Yo, you’re perhaps a high school student?]
[Ye, yes. Now. I’m in my second year]
And thus, it means that he is the same year as Isagi.
[Then, we’re from the same year right] -Isagi
[It seems so. It make me felt a little relieved you know, I’m glad it’s same as Asaura-kun]
He gave a smile towards Isagi. It was a gentle smile that could give peace of mind to anyone.
[Or rather just call me as Isa. It is okay you know. I will also call you Shou]
[Un, then best regard, Isa-kun]
Shou who grinning. He’s have good personality eh, or so he thought. It’s a good thing. He doesn’t have any confidence to sit alone in this place, if Shou wasn’t here.
[Shou, you didn’t say that you wanted to go back heh]
[Un, well ….. In exchange there’s someone I want to tell this about]
Lowering his voice, Shou said
[Actually perhaps our family or maybe friends are worried about us or so I think. That’s why at least it would be good if I’m able to send even just letter to them you know … .]
[That’s right. …..]
Isagi who was nodding earnestly. It’s good if they develop a summoning skill for just sending things. But there’s no time for such thing.
[Even Isa-kun would have someone who was worried about you, right?]
[….. umm~ well, maybe?]
The one who floated into Isagi’s mind at this moment, is not his relative on the other world who neglected him, but it was his friends from 20 years ago which he was separated with. Shou who saw that face painted with sorrow, let out a giggle.
[Perhaps, you had a girlfriend?]
Involuntarily Isagi’s face became red.
[I, it’s not like my relationship with her is like that]
[Isa-kun, it’s seems I like hit bulls eye, right?]
[You’re wrong. You’re totally wrong]
Even though he understand that he is being made fun of. Somehow he didn’t feel irritated about it. Perhaps it’s because Shou’s attitude is kind, thus he understand that Shou is just joking. Or perhaps being called stupid by his male friend (tempted to write Boyfriend, but no!), is just really nostalgic to him.
(Now I remember that since I was summoned as the brave 3 years ago, I always kept on fighting…… ) (TL: he is time slip so it’s still 3 years for him, not 20)
Though there were some fun things, but there were also many that were not. There’s not really much chance to quietly having a chat with another person like this.
(Hey, this is perhaps fun)
It’s at this time he had such a thought. The dinning hall’s doors slowly opened.
The ones who came were Swordsman and Witch, which they already meet at the basement. He could not see Dyutyu’s figure anywhere.
[Didn’t you come late eeh damn it]
Though they were poured on by Yankee’s jeers, both of them had nonchalant faces. The little girl Witch arrived at the end of the table, and raised one of her fingers.
[E~ There’s poison inside the meal today no] <- she said in childish way adding “no” or “nano” at the end of her sentence.
Isagi got confused.
(No way ….. I made a mistake, for me to not anticipate such a thing …. )
Isagi body is able to nullify poison if it’s to some extent. But if it’s the highest level deadly poison —- “Deadly poison” (Super creative name you got there Author) is given to him then the story is different. Summoned to this place, his carelessness continued. As expected it’s because he is alone.
Isagi always gathered with his party. No matter what happened, he always surpassed it along with his friends. Now that thing, back-fired to him.
( …. But, for what reason )
He couldn’t see Shirbenia’s aim. By any chance, perhaps it’s a type which removes a person’s sanity.
His surrounding also became noisy.
[Eh, Eee~ ……]
Ikemen’s face become pale.
[Don’t mess with me you bitch!]
Yankee stood up. Even Eyeglasses who only took a sip of the soup is now filled with nervousness.
Witch who still had no expression, now closed one of her eyes. Or perhaps, that’s just her badly made wink.
[It’s a joke nano] <- every time I read her dialogue some kind of voice from certain anime character cross my head but I can’t remember … Orz)
…. …. What is this girl?
[Ooh, you bitch have some nerve eeh]
Clank thus Yankee stood up and start rolling his sleeves.
Isagi and Shou somehow were able to hold him down. Though at this case, the one who’s wrong 1000% is Shirbenia. At any rate, fighting would be bad.
When they thought Yankee was calmed down, they let his arms go.
[….. Eeh~, though Princess in not here, she’s now resting since her physical condition didn’t get better. And thus, let’s once again explain it]
Ira stared to speak with a expression that seems like holding a headache.
Though the last time Isagi meet her, Dyutyu seemed to be healthy. Or possibly at this case,perhaps it’s that they didn’t want to bring her along. If there’s Yankee at this place, there’s must be a chance that she will collapse again. Right? Indeed. What a swordsman who have consideration toward it’s master eh.
[I am the angelica race Ira. This one is the witch Shirbenia. We are the one who became corps commander and magician leader in this castle]
[On the top of that, the ones who are Demon Lord candidates have made me become so listless thus it can’t be helped no. Aah ~ bothersome]
[……. Don’t speak unnecessary thing, Shirbenia]
Irritated Ira. (Irairashinagara Ira <- supposed to become some kind of joke) It’s not a pun. This person is like a wiseman.
[….. Sorry, this kid is the last 《 Axis summoner》 demon that is still alive you know. Though there are some parts of her which little strange, I wish you to overlook it]
Swish swish Shirbenia who was shaking her head. Still she didn’t appear to be such a great figure at all eh …..
Summon witchcraft master.
They are people who are able to connect between this world and that world.
Originally ‘Magician’ itself are rare people. Witchcraft is one of it’s peak, it can’t be used by a person without any knack for it.
Even among that, summoning magic is special. Via the 《 Summoning magic formation 》which there are only 3 in this continent by pouring a great deal of magical power in it, They are able to summon various power, ritual article, or sometimes people like Isagi and the others.
A skilled person who is able to use special witchcraft, they are《Axis summoner》.
(…… This kid is? )
No matter how you see it she only look like an middle schooler. Her eyes also looks drowsy and does not have any ambition. In this world which real age and appearance is not always look same, considering that she is still to childish. Or rather “weird”. Her genus is “Weirdo”.
[Somehow I felt some wicked gaze which aimed toward my body no. Since I don’t know who is the culprit thus for now I will blow off everyone as it’s also a way no]
[Stop it Shirbenia]
She got her head held down by Ira. Unya~, Shirbenia who let out such voice and got crushed.
At such time, Crash, there’s a man who stroked his hand on the table. It’s Yankee. It seems that he got on the provocation by reflex. He glared at Shibernia, and shouted with a loud voice.
[Try it bitch! Aaaan!?]
It’s tit for tat. Isagi who’s near him somewhat got surprised though, just that. After all presently it’s just merely an angry voice from normal person. His fighting power, is just 5 huh. This trash, it was at that level.
But. Witch who get directly poured on with loud voice, greatly trembled. When he thought that she was clearly trembling, that girl squint. The faint emotion which dweel inside it, Isagi see it.
As casual as when a teacher pointing their student. She raise her hand overhead.
She whispered lazily.
At that moment, a flash.
Ira was shouting.
[(魔)女] Witch firing a hot beam that come out from her fingertip. [(魔)術] It’s not a sorcery [(魔)法] It’s a witchcraft.
Her witchcraft, certainly aimed at yankee’s head. If it hit, his head will blown away. It’s Instant death.
(She’s joking right — )
The only ones who could react were Ira and Isagi.
With her hand, Ira slightly avert that hot beam trajectory. Since it’s an instant attack, it’s output is narrowed down. And that bore fruit.
Nobody of demon lords candidate are moving. The hot light beam which slightly missed from it’s target, grazed Yankee’s head. Yankee’s hair got burned off, scattering and fluttering. Zaaap or when they thought there is such a voice, the dinning wall at his back, scorched.
Isagi who prepare himself in case that Ira fail to do it, felt relived. At least nobody is dead. But.
It feels like time stopped. These boys just now, for the first time saw paranormal power.
Yankee stepped back slightly, then sat back to his chair. As he put his hand against his head,blood was oozing out. It was the place that got burnt by the lazer just now. His face, got slightly paler.
[Haha, awesome heh ….. Perhaps this is, “magic” (魔法) right …..] – Shou (TL: he doesn’t know about the difference between mahou, majutsu and Houjutsu, thus I think that mahou that he mention in this line is not Witchcraft but “magic”)
Behind Shou was fear, anxiety and awe – which spoke for the sentiments between Yankee and Eyeglass
Ikemen: Hiyama Shou. Slightly friendly with Isagi.
Ira: Swordman of Angelia race. Corps commander . Have a lot of troubles. Shirbenia: Summoning magic master from Witch tribe. Weirdo.
