Translated by: ShinigamiTori
My First Time in a Different World 3
After that, I continued to practice my magic every day. As the saying goes, I think I made enough painstaking efforts.
I realized that I had no choice but to get used to holy magic, so I spent every spare moment trying to familiarize my body with magic.
I was originally the type of person who would go through with anything, and since I had the great responsibility of being the saintess, I definitely didn’t want my country to be destroyed or anyone to lose their life because of me.
Thanks to my efforts, by the time two months had passed since I came to this world, I was able to use beginner-level magic.
“Status──Okay, good, it’s going up.”
I exhaled in relief when I saw the numbers lined up on the light blue status screen floating in the air with a light pon sound.
Practicing magic, which at first was a struggle, became fun once I got the hang of it and my stats began to rise. It was nice to see the growth officially, and it felt rewarding.
Three months passed in the blink of an eye, and the six of us finally set out on our journey to defeat the Demon King.
I was still weak, but I aimed to level up by defeating demons along the way and tried to improve my level in the game.
“Isn’t this carriage rocking too much? I feel like I’m going to throw up.”
“Are you all right? I wonder if healing magic works on motion sickness?”
“Just give it a try…. Bleurgh…”
“Recovery Heal──Do you notice anything different?”
“Hngg, I don’t know exactly, but I feel a little better.”
The moving carriage was divided into two carts with the following members: myself, Owen and Theo, and Alvin-sama, Dirk and Lara.
Even though the six of us were traveling together, of course, we had separate rooms at the inn and half of the members didn’t even try to talk during meals, so there was no increase in interaction.
“The atmosphere is too heavy, is this place a funeral hall!? Hahaha.”
“Shut up and eat your food.”
Instead, the awkwardness between Alvin-sama and the others had jumped up due to the fact that they were spending more time together but not talking to each other.
“Wow, you’re still practicing. Aren’t you going to sleep?”
“Yeah. I’m going to practice just a little bit more and then go to bed.”
As the night fell, I was practicing magic in the garden of the inn when Theo, who happened to be passing by, called out to me.
It seemed that Theo was just about to go to sleep. It was refreshing to see that his hair, which was usually tied up in a bun, was let down for once.
“Nina is really diligent.”
Even after the journey to defeat the Demon King began, I never stopped trying to improve my magic. In fact, I probably practiced more than I did since the trip began.
“Get out of the way, you’re slowing me down.”
“…. I’m sorry.”
I already knew this, but I was reminded of how much of a liability I was when I saw how overwhelmingly strong everyone else was.
Even though I knew it was inevitable, I was still frustrated. I strongly wanted to catch up and helped as much as possible.
“If you push yourself too hard, you’ll die, because humans are weak.”
“Thank you. But I need to get stronger fast.”
“Hmm. Well, don’t forget to eat a lot of food and sleep a lot.”
“Hahaha, I will.”
Such casual exchanges with Theo were also very encouraging. Theo was honest, cheerful, and cute like a little brother.
In the midst of all this, we decided to stay for three days in a rural town near a forest where a large number of high-ranked demons were said to be appearing.
“I-I couldn’t do anything today either….”
“It can’t be helped. There were only B-ranks and above today.”
I was planning to improve my skills during the trip, but there was no room for me to practice. It seemed that I would have to do something about it with self-training.
“…. If only E- and F-ranked demons appear, then I should be fine on my own.”
This town was sandwiched between two forests, one of which seemed to produce only low-ranked demons, making it a safe place to train. I felt very grateful for this opportune hunting ground.
After hearing such a story from a local resident, I was about to get ready and head to the forest after dinner.
“Where are you going at this hour?”
While walking down the hallway, I was surprised to be approached by Dirk, who came from in front of me.
Although he always responded when I spoke to him, this was the first time he voluntarily approached me.
“Eh? Well, I was thinking of going to the nearby forest.”
Dirk’s apple-red hair was more subdued than usual, indicating that he had just finished bathing. It felt like it was the first time that his golden eyes and my gaze were firmly intertwined.
Even though I was puzzled, when I explained the reason, he told me to “wait for a while,” which made me even more confused.
“I’m going with you. If something happens, you will be in trouble.”
“T-Thank you very much…! I’ll wait for you!”
Although it was unexpected, Dirk’s offer made me so happy that I couldn’t help but smile.
At the same time, I was also relieved. Even though I knew it was safe, I was a little scared to go into the dark forest at night by myself.
