Daybreak Summoner - Chapter 25
Legend of the Daybreak
“Oh, isn’t that Rei-san going down this street?”
“Oh, Shifle-chan, Fuu-chan too.”
A high-end residential area in the northern part of the Royal Capital.
After a long absence from home, Shifle runs out of the house with Fuu-chan on her head, and bumps into Rei walking alone on the street.
“What are you doing here? Don’t tell me you came to see Shifle!”
“Haha, sorry… Not today…”
Rei awkwardly puts her hand behind her head.
A closer look reveals that her left arm is wrapped in a bandage.
“I see – too bad. Rinna onee-san is not with you today? “
“Yeah, Rin-chan is… kind of, well…”
She stopped talking and averted her gaze.
This would be like saying something was wrong.
“…What the happened?”
“I can’t hide anything from you… Actually, we were attacked by assailants yesterday. I’m about to go talk to Hilde-san about it.”
“Attackers? Do you mean that summoner showed up? “
“Yes, but a little different…”
Rei was wondering how to explain.
Should she involve Shifle, this little girl who is still very young?
If she knew the truth, she would definitely lend a hand.
But even then….
“You have a look on your face that says you don’t trust Shifle’s abilities.”
Looking at Rei with straight eyes and a bit of anger, Shifle complains.
“Shifle is Rinna-san’s senior. I’m not so weak as to be worried. Besides…Shifle can’t do anything when her friends, who gave her the confidence to say so, are in trouble.”
“Shifle-chan… Yeah, I understand.”
Rei nodded without hesitation at the girl’s straightforward words.
She is not a weak existence to be protected.
She is a fine summoner who has a heart-to-heart with the S-class Summoned Beast Frezberk.
“Then let’s go to Hilde’s place together. We can talk about the details there.”
“I’ll talk about it in detail there. I mean, you knew the Knight Commander, didn’t you?”
The knights’ station, close to the royal castle.
Many knights come and go, and the place is filled with a stuffy atmosphere.
Rei, mildly nervous, tries to talk to a knight guarding the entrance, but the knight calls out to her first.
“Hey, aren’t you Rei-san?”
“Oh, you know me?”
Rei cannot see the knight’s expression because of his full-body armor, but he is so friendly that Rei is taken aback.
“I was very impressed by that great showdown you had with the Commander. Do you still have business with the Commander today? “
“Yes, I came to talk to Hilde-san. “
“Well, of course. Come along, come in. Hey! Open the gates!”
The knight called out loudly, and with the sound of chains being wound up, the large wooden gate lifted heavily.
As it was, he led Rei and the others inside.
“This is the reception room. I’ll go get the Commander, so please make yourselves comfortable until then. Good day.”
As the knight left the room, Shifle sat down briskly on the fluffy sofa.
“Rei, this is wonderful! I can bounce!”
Shifle was bouncing up and down…
Fuu-chan, doesn’t seem to be fazed by all this.
“Fufufu, Shifle-chan is so excited. But still, it’s a gorgeous room…”
Rei looks around the room.
The wooden cupboards are covered with glass and contain a variety of items.
Rei does not know what they are, but they are probably high-end items.
Above the cupboards are vases and vases of flowers, and on the walls are paintings.
On the right side of the Shilfe, a sofa is comfortable, with a comfortable sink in.
After a few moments of tranquility, there is a knock at the door of the room and the doorknob is turned.
“I’m sorry, Rei-dono. I’ve been in the middle of some business, sorry to keep you waiting.”
The door opens and the person they are expecting enters.
Hilde closed the door and sat down on the couch in front of Rei and the others.
“No, thank you for taking the time to see us.”
“Don’t worry about it. The girl over there…is that Shifle Garden?”
“Do you know Shifle, Commander-san? “
Shifle seemed surprised to hear her name mentioned from Hilde’s mouth.
She probably didn’t think that her name was known to anyone in the A Class, let alone in the S Class.
“I heard that you are a genius who was promoted to A Class at the age of only ten.”
“That’s not true about being a genius…”
Shifle wiggles her body in embarrassment.
Fuu-chan, being swung from side to side, is completely unfazed by her sense of balance, which is wonderful.
“By the way, what happened to Rinna-dono? I thought you two were always together.”
“…That’s what I came here today to talk to you about.”
“Shifle also followed her here because I heard that they were in trouble.”
“…Hmm. Let’s hear it.”
Hilde’s face tightens as she senses an unusual mood in Rei’s expression.
“Actually, I was attacked by a certain summoner yesterday.”
“What? The same attacker!”
Rei shook her head gently.
“Sure, we did encounter the attacker, but it wasn’t that person who attacked us.”
She pauses and exhales deeply.
Rei then mentions the name.
“We…. No, the name of the summoner who attacked me is… Dinna Gelsneir.”
“Rinna onee-san’s, onee-san? “
The two of them are stunned.
The genius summoner, who had been missing for a long time, suddenly appeared and attacked her sister.
It’s an unbelievable story at first glance.
“…I see. Rinna-dono was attacked by her own sister.”
“Yes. She is sleeping now in her room.”
The story seemed to have shocked Hilde as well.
But suddenly, Rei’s words caught Hilde’s attention.
“…Wait, you just said “I” again, what do you mean?”
“It seems that Dinna wanted my life, and she didn’t want to hurt Rin-chan.”
“Rei-dono’s life…? Why in the world would she…?”
“I don’t know. Anyway, she summoned a weapon called the divine spear Gungnir and attacked me.”
“A divine spear…? Commander, could it be?”
Rei mentioned the word “divine spear”.
Shifle seems to have an idea.
“Shifle-chan, do you know something! “
“The legend of the dawn…. It’s the weapon from the heroic fairy tale I told you about before.”
“The Legend of the Dawn, I thought that was just a fairy tale…”
“Tell me more about that story!”
All Rei had heard before was that a monster called the Three Divine Beasts appeared in the story.
Perhaps it could be a clue to something.
“Ah, ah. This is a story that everyone in this world knows…”
Long ago, a mighty being called the Summoner of Twilight tried to envelop the world in flames.
Accompanying the summoner was a world serpent of great size, and a princess of hell who wielded immense magical power.
Just as the world was about to be engulfed in despair, seven heroes rose up.
Each of the seven possesses a bow, a magic accessory, a magic flute, a mighty sword, a thunder hammer, and a divine spear.
The summoner of daybreak wields a holy sword that is said to bring absolute victory.
The summoner of daybreak, accompanied by the divine wolf with ice fangs, confronts the twilight together with the six heroes.
After a long and deadly struggle, the holy sword finally pierced through the summoner of the twilight.
Thus, peace was brought to the world.
That’s the general outline of the story.
“…The Magic Accessory. Brísingamen…”
“Hmm? What is that?”
Rei picks up a familiar word from Hilde’s story.
Shifle asks the question in a mumbled whisper.
Rei thinks for a moment and replies.
“The summoner who often attacked us, she called herself Helena.”
“Helena…that’s a name I’ve never heard of.”
“Shifle has never heard of such a summoner either.”
Neither of them had ever heard of that name.
In other words, she is not a well-known summoner in the public eye.
But now it’s more than that.
“That’s what that Helena called the bracelet she wore. It’s called a magic accessory, Brísingamen.”
“I see… a magic accessory and a divine spear, huh?”
“What the heck is this all about? Are you saying that the weapons of the heroes are real? “
“They called it the weapons the Seven Great Armaments – Seven Arms. And called themselves Seven Great Blades.”
“Seven Great Blades… and Seven Great Armaments?”
Hilde ponders deeply.
Shifle’s head is in her hands and she doesn’t know what’s going on anymore.
“If the Great Armaments really exist and they have all of them, that’s very dangerous.”
“That’s right. I wonder what they are planning to do…”
Why is Helena after Rinna and Dinna after Rei?
“I understand your story, I’ll look into it, including the summoner named Helena.”
Hilde breaks off the conversation and gets up from her seat.
Rei had finished telling her everything she needed to know.
She gets up from the couch and bows to Hilde.
“Thank you for today, Hilde-san.”
“Don’t thank me. I want you to go home soon and stay with Rinna-dono.”
“Yes, I will. Then let’s go home, shall we, Shifle-chan?”
“Yes…. Ugh, it seems like bad things will be happening…”
