We were flying with our hang gliders.
I was really glad I made them.
Unlike traveling by land, flying allowed us to travel the shortest distance and move much faster.
It would’ve taken several days to reach the royal capital by carriage.
The flight was going so well I started to feel a little mischievous.
[Dia, I think I’m gonna try that spell you created.] (Lugh)
Super-acceleration by a jet of high-pressure gas heated by flames was an exceedingly logical propulsion system.
Dia’s flair in creating that without any prior knowledge was incredible.
And in my case, I could use it better than her.
[Be careful, though. I may have created that spell, but the airframe makes a lot of awful noises when I use it, and as you can use wind magic, if you went all out, the airframe might not be able to withstand it.] (Dia)
[I’ll take that into account.] (Lugh)
I originally designed the hang gliders to be as light as possible to withstand acceleration in the wind.
Even though they could absorb a certain amount of shocks, the risk of an accident if we went faster than the expected speed was still present.
[You already learned how to use it?] (Dia)
[Yeha, just before we left.] (Lugh)
As it seemed like it could be useful in various ways, I created a modified version of Dia’s spell.
I gave it two improvements. The first one was the use of wind magic to gather the surrounding wind more efficiently.
The second was the incorporation of a kind of membrane I produced with a non-elemental spell, so that the entire airframe would take in the propulsion force.
I gave this modified spell the name of【Thruster】.
It could be used not only for travel, but also for combat. The jet of high-pressure gas was extremely deadly, and in actual battles, it would be an easy-to-use spell to shoot out high-powered attacks while moving.
I promptly casted【Thruster】.
I used the power of my【Multi-Chant】skill to draw up my fire mana and wind mana at the same time, allowing me to complete the incantation of【Thruster】, and activate the spell.
We accelerated at such a tremendous speed that the wind pressure was making my face twitch. We were flying outrageously fast.
It felt so great I could grow accustomed to it.
After a few seconds, I deactivated【Thruster】. If I had used it any longer, the airframe would’ve fallen apart.
[This spell is amazing.] (Lugh)
[Ahaha! That was great! So this is what happens when you use this spell with your wind magic and ridiculously high mana capacity.] (Dia)
[So it seems. …Guess I’ll have to redesign the hang glider so I can use this spell efficiently.] (Lugh)
Considering how powerful the propulsion was, I had to make it more rigid, even if it meant making it heavier.
[That’d be nice, but if at the end of it, you’re the only one who can use it, then I don’t think it’s worth it. Look, I can’t even see Tarte anymore.] (Dia)
[Fair point.] (Lugh)
I also switched off my wind spell to regain a gliding speed and let Tarte catch up to us.
After a while, Tarte’s voice emerged from my radio communicator.
[You were so fast when that thing bursted out, I couldn’t keep up at all!] (Tarte)
Tarte’s voice over the radio was drowned in her own tears.
Indeed, as Dia pointed out, having only one hang glider that could handle【Thruster】would be pointless.
No, wait. Maybe I should change my aim.
[Okay, I’ve made my decision. I’ll make a four-seater aircraft designed to be used with【Thruster】.] (Lugh)
The reason why I built hang gliders instead of airplanes was because I could get more speed with them by prioritizing lightness despite their lack of propulsion.
However, I mentally calculated that with my【Thruster】spell, even with four seats and more weight to ensure its rigidity, an airplane would be the faster of the two.
[…What kind of abomination are you going to create, I wonder. And I’m a bit scared to find out.] (Dia)
[Well, just look forward to it.] (Lugh)
The final product would no longer be a hang glider, but a private jet or something similar.
I can’t wait to complete it.
We landed on the outskirts of the royal capital and disguised ourselves.
I handled the makeup and dressing for that.
And I’d prepared fake ID papers as well.
Our goal this time was to persuade the witness hired by those who were trying to frame me to switch sides.
And we couldn’t let them know that we had come to the royal capital by any means.
[I really don’t want to dye my hair. I’m afraid it will damage it.] (Dia)
[Don’t worry about that. I’ve taken it into consideration.] (Lugh)
I liked Dia’s silver hair. I would never do anything that would damage it.
This dye was something I had originally developed to be sold in Orna.
Hair dyes were in high demand among the nobility and the wealthy.
And when I say that, I don’t mean for disguise or fashion. Those who purchased it were people from the older generations who wanted to hide their gray hair and supplement its shine.
All of Orna’s cosmetics were marketed to be good for health through continuous use, not just for dressing up, which was how it could dominate as a top brand.
This dye was also great for taking care of your hair instead of damaging it.
[It’s amazing what a disguise can do. Dia-sama is giving off a completely different impression.] (Tarte)
As for Tarte, her hair was dyed red and made straight and long.
With a sarashi wrapped around her chest to flatten it, plus the fact that she was wearing a noble young lady’s makeup, she was giving off an impression completely different from usual.
When she saw Tarte, Dia looked in the mirror to see what she looked like.
[…Say, can I keep wearing this disguise not from the neck up, but from the neck down every day?] (Dia)
[No can do, it’d only defeat the purpose of the disguise.] (Lugh)
Dia’s disguise was that of a country girl with black hair worn up, and makeup that made her beautiful skin look dirty and freckled. Nonetheless, the outfit I chose for her was something highly expensive and outdated.
From every angle, she looked like a country girl who had just arrived in the royal capital to strike it rich.
Her usual noble, doll-like beauty was nowhere to be seen.
To put it bluntly, that disguise ruined Dia’s good looks.
However, she didn’t care about that at all. She was simply focusing her attention on her breasts from the neck down.
I used pads to make them look bigger.
[They are… fake, aren’t they? They look so real no matter how you look at them. It’s incredible…! These would definitely sell! If they were marketed, I’d buy them for sure!] (Dia)
[…I guess.] (Lugh)
Some of the upper class nobles also padded their chests, but their pads were crude and, frankly speaking, easy to spot.
Although it was possible to hide them a little by wearing a dress made of hard fabric, the feel of the material was too different from the real thing, showing that they were artificial.
On that note, by combining the pads and special bra I made, the result looked like a genuine article from every angle. That was because the shape and texture were perfect.
I was confident that even if someone touched them, they wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
[Amazing! They’re so soft and jiggly, I like them! By the way, there are a few lines I’ve always wanted to say, and now I can! “Having large breasts make my shoulders so stiff” ; “They make me lose my balance when I run, and it hurts when they sway” ; “They are nothing but a bother.”] (Dia)
Dia continued to complain about her breasts in a satisfied manner.
In spite of her words, she was extremely pleased with herself.
And for some reason, Tarte kept blushing harder and harder.
Come to think of it, Dia’s tone and voice just now sounded vaguely similar to Tarte’s.
[Dia-sama, you’re so mean! All you’ve been doing is quoting me! And you even imitated the way I speak!] (Tarte)
[Fufufu! That was payback. Now you can imagine my wrath and the feelings of those who don’t have what you have when they hear you say those lines.] (Dia)
While she was generally perfect in every way, that was Dia’s one and only complex, so I let her savor the moment.
As I watched the two of them messing around, I put on my own disguise.
[Now, let’s go. And make sure you don’t lose your fake IDs. Without them, you wouldn’t be allowed into the royal capital.] (Lugh)
[…Um, is that really you, Lugh-sama? No matter how I look at you, all I see is a beautiful girl. You look so much more attractive than me, I’m a little shocked.] (Tarte)
[You can say that again. Even at the parties held in the royal capital, I’ve never seen such a gorgeous woman.] (Dia)
I was disguised as a woman.
Because it would be more convenient for the execution of my upcoming plans.
And since I had androgynous looks, I could perfectly assume the appearance of a woman by disguising myself to some extent, and I was confident in my acting skills too.
Even in my past life, I had dressed up as a woman and used seduction techniques to off my targets in my youth.
[Then does this mean that the reason you made this breast enlarging stuff was to dress up as a woman?] (Dia)
[That’s right. I figured I’d get the opportunity to use them someday. Because the only kind of disguise that is farthest removed from one’s original appearance is the cross-dressing kind.] (Lugh)
I did think about dressing Tarte and Dia in men’s outfits, but I didn’t pick that option, because even if I could give them the right looks, it would’ve been impossible for them to behave like actual men, and they would’ve most likely attracted suspicion.
[…Since you were so thorough about it, doesn’t this mean that it’s always been a hobby of yours?] (Dia)
[Come to think of it, Lugh-sama did use to wear women’s clothings frequently!] (Tarte)
[Right! And you were dressed as a girl when I first met you too!] (Dia)
The two of them gave me awfully suspicious looks.
[Oh please. That was just something my mom forced on me… I’m not into cross-dressing.] (Lugh)
[Yes, I understand. Don’t worry, I really do.] (Dia)
[No matter what your hobbies are, I will accept everything about you, Lugh-sama!] (Tarte)
This is giving me a headache.
Fine then. Once I’m done with work, I’ll show them both how manly I am.
To regain my honor.
Maybe I should even do so in my female appearance to make them understand my manhood.
To that end, let’s first clear away the incoming dangers.
I already have a plan in place for that.
