The Strongest Ten Year Old Magician - Chapter 36
Confrontation with the Bear Demon King
Alicia calls out to the picture book on the wooden box.
“…Bear-san, Bear-san, it’s me, Leticia. Let me in, please.”
Ferris watches the scene intently.
The picture book remains silent, no response.
“Bear-san, are you mad at me…?”
Ferris became worried. What would happen if Bear did not open the door to the world of picture books, Jeanette would become a resident of the picture book, one of the pictures, never to come out again… her fears were growing in her little heart.
“…It’s going to be okay.”
Alicia gently stroked the frightened head of Ferris, a powerful mage, but a ten-year-old girl. It would be sad to scare her too much, and it would be hard to watch.
Alicia didn’t give up and spoke to the picture book.
“I’m sorry about earlier. It’s been a long time since we last met, and I was so surprised to see you. It’s been so long since I’ve seen you, I was so surprised. I wanted to see you again, but I have to leave soon for school. Bye.”
Alicia pulled Ferris’ hand and was about to leave the attic when.
[You can’t… You can’t…go home Rheinzlich!!!]
A voice that seemed to rise from the depths of the earth resounded, and light flooded from within the picture book.
The pages were turned at a tremendous speed, and the wind blew.
Ferris and Alicia screamed and hugged each other, and were sucked into the picture book with a fierce light.
“This, this place…”
“I guess we’re back… here.”
Ferris and Alicia looked around as they hugged each other.
It was the outer yard of Bear’s castle, the last scene they had seen in the storybook.
The only difference from earlier was that there was a large birdcage hanging from the castle’s outer wall, where Jeanette was trapped. Next to it, a large Bear gnomish gnome was standing in a Stuffed Toy position.
“Leticia! It has to be Leticia! The alternative Leticia is no good! She’s not at all graceful, and she’s so bossy, I almost cried!”
Jeanette heard this and became indignant.
“Hey! What’s not graceful about me? What’s wrong with you? Change it!”
She stomps her feet with a force that is hard to believe for a prisoner, shaking the fence of the birdcage with a clang.
“Hii! The real Leticia is not like you! She’s a real Young Lady!”
“What part of me is not a Young Lady? You insulted the name of Rheinzlich !!!!”
Bear shoves the birdcage away from the wall as if it were a beehive, and shoves it toward Ferris and Alicia.
“I’ll give her back! Get it out of here! I’ve got my real Leticia back!”
“I’m glad you let me go, but I’m uncertain if I feel quite right…”
Jeanette was dented. She didn’t want to be chosen, but it was also sad not to be chosen.
“Come on, Leticia, come here. Let’s live in this world with me forever and ever and ever and ever.”
Bear’s evil grin widens, and he approaches Alicia with his paw outstretched.
The ground shakes with a heavy thud.
It’s good that she’s ridden into the Cursed Item to save Jeanette, but this place is more dangerous for Alicia than anyone else; Bear’s gnome wants Alicia – the girl who reflects Leticia’s face! So.
Ferris gently removed his own hand from Alicia’s.
Then she moved his trembling legs to stand between Alicia and Bear.
“No, no, Alicia-san has to go to school with Jeanette-san and me, to take classes, to eat, and to go shopping!”
“What? I don’t know anything about that. I don’t know anything about that. I’m going to live happily with Leticia. I’ve made all the decisions!”
Bear’s shoulders were furious, and he let out a ferocious roar.
The air convulsed at the sheer volume of the roar, and Ferris and the others felt their bodies vibrating. Ferris rushed to cover his ears with the palms of his hands, his eardrums nearly ruptured.
She was scared, but she couldn’t retreat here. She was unable to lose Jeanette or Alicia, and she was unable to leave the people trapped here behind.
Ferris stomps his tiny feet and looks up at the giant Bear. She pleads in a trembling voice.
“I don’t think you should be selfish! We all have to go home, please let them go! Please!”
“Shut up! “Shut up! Don’t tell me what to do! I’m the king of this world! I’m the king of this world! I’ll break you into pieces! !!!!”
Bear raised his left and right forelimbs, and the sky bent limply as a bright red meteor shower fell on Ferris.
The meteor shower shattered the birdcage, and Jeanette scurried out of the inside, selfless.
Ferris held up his palm and a magical ward was created, covering all three girls.
Bear opens his jaws and spews purple miasma from his mouth. The miasma slams into the magic ward, dissolving the ground and walls of the outer yard, but the ward is unaffected.
“Damn! Damn, damn, damn! What the heck is that barrier! Why can’t I break it! This is my world! Get out of the way, or I’ll blow everyone out but Leticia!”
“Alicia-san, stay with me!”
Alicia clung to Ferris. If they were separated, the storybook world would never open again, and Ferris might not be able to come back to save Alicia.
“Hey, hey! What are you doing sticking to Ferris? That’s not fair!”
“Now is not the time to be talking like that!”
“It’s always the time! I’ll squeeze you too!”
Even Jeanette was clinging to her with all her might, making it difficult for Ferris to move. Normally, she loves being hugged by Alicia and Jeanette, but the situation is what it is.
“What are we going to do? We’re not going to get anywhere at this rate!?”
“We have no choice but to attack them too. It may look cute, but if the cursed item is not defeated properly, the number of victims will continue to increase!
“It looks cute…?”
Jeanette was bewildered in the face of the runaway bear, which looked like a giant monster with fangs bared.
“I’ll try! [Magic Element-san, blow that Bear-san away!]”
Ferris commanded Bear, holding out his palm, but nothing happened. Normally, a magic with tremendous power would be unleashed, but nothing happens.
“After all…it’s no good…”
“No, it’s not no good! No, no, no, no, no!”
Ferris closed his eyes and concentrated desperately. She performed detailed magical imagery, just as she had done when she was manipulating compound magic when she did not yet know how to command Magic Element directly.
To return with Alicia and Jeanette. And to help the captives.
I formulate the words and chant them with the utmost force of will.
“Snow, the power that is the suppressor of all wrath, become the flame that roars in the darkness, and strike down and purge his enemies – Vertical White!”
A small snowball was released from Ferris’ palm.
It was a tiny, tiny snowball, like a single almond.
“So, it’s done! I could use magic in this world too!”
“Oh, no! How can you defeat me with such a tiny magic ——!?!?!?”
As soon as the snowball is released from Ferris’ palm, it flies toward Bear, expanding at an astonishing speed.
The moisture present in the air rapidly freezes and sticks to the snowball, causing it to expand and push forward like a snowball.
“No matter how big you are, you can’t defeat me, the king of this world!”
When Bear tried to counter by spewing a mass of flame from his mouth.
The snowball had become a huge substitute for the castle… and it crashed down on top of Bear.
The Bear was flattened, the earth shook tremendously, and a cloud of smoke billowed up.
Ferris, Alicia, and Jeanette supported each other as they almost collapsed from the tremendous shaking.
Eventually, the shaking stopped.
“Um…are you okay…?”
Ferris asked Bear, who was trapped under the snowball, fearfully.
Bear, whose face was the only thing sticking out from under the snowball, turned his eyes and pouted.
“What the hell…what the hell are you…? I’m supposed to be controlling the laws of this world…. How is it possible that you’re so strong, even though you’re dressed so prettily?”
“I guess we have a match.”
Alicia’s chest heaves.
Jeanette puffed out her cheeks and glared at Bear.
“Now, what am I going to do with this Bear! You didn’t forget that you called me a ‘circus of beasts’, did you?”
“I never said that!”
Bear let out a loud scream.
