School and measurement.
Although I don’t have to participate in the basics lessons, I am attending today because of the body measurements, physical prowess + magical power measurement.
Earlier today, my height, weight and three sizes have been measured. I am 145cm tall. Weight is a secret. My breasts grew a little. Is this the result of breast enlargement exercises and massages?
Now then, time to measure my physical prowess and magical power. I changed into gym clothes and went to the gymnasium. The gym clothes are a white shirt and navy blue shorts.
Sprint, long jump, repetition of side hops, vertical jump, and forward bending were part of the physical prowess measurement. It was mostly similar to Rin’s world.
Yep. The contents were similar, but the Beastmen were out of the norm. The winners of the Olympics would roll away before them.
Now then, it’s almost time for me to do the sprint. It seems that Aldin-sama is running together with me.
“I won’t lose, alright!”
This is not a match, but now that I was told such, I want to win.
“Teacher, may people who are able to use magic utilize it?”
The timid woman… Mireille, who is the homeroom teacher of my class and unexpectedly also in charge of the sprint measurement replied.
“I don’t mind if you do, but you will have to be measured twice, one with the utilization of magic and one without.”
“… Don’t use magic, alright?”
Tsk, he read me. I unwillingly took off the weight magic tools I was wearing. Ah~ my limbs feel so light. They looked just like wristbands, so Aldin-sama looked at them wonderingly. I gave them to Teacher to hold on, but because they were abnormally heavy, she nearly fell over. Aldin-sama who noticed that something wasn’t right, spoke to me.
“… Rosarin, what are those magic tools?”
“Weights that help me with the efficiency of training. It’s 40kg for both hands and legs.”
“… T, that so?”
Aldin-sama has obviously stiffened. No, I don’t have much time to do muscle training, so I came up with this.
“Take your positions! Ready, go!”
While having carefree thoughts about the starting shout being the same, I passed by the finish line by a wide margin. As expected of Rosalia-san. Aldin-sama was teary-eyed. Moderation? Feeling pity for losers is a taboo and going lightly on him would be impolite? Certainly.
The homeroom teacher addressed me timidly.
“Umm, Miss Rosaria… was that magic, just now…”
“I have not used any?”
“………… Is that so?”
Why is the teacher making a complicated expression? By the way, if I used magic, even the people at the Olympics would find my numbers impossible.
“Rosarin, just what is your objective that you have turned out like this!?”
“These numbers are not possible for a Duke’s daughter!”
After the physical prowess measurement, I was being criticized by Aldin-sama and Miss Milfilia. Why is that?
“… My objective is to survive no matter what happens, I would say.”
My goal is to turn eighteen, get married to Dirk and spend a wonderful time with him until we die of old age.
“What are you intending to fight!?”
“In the first place, you are in a position to be protected, no!? This is ridiculous! I don’t understand your meaning behind tempering yourself!”
“… The truth is that tempering myself is my hobby. I want to find out my limits.”
If I am pushed to say, then this was Rosalia’s reasoning, but they have understood it. I was looked at with the eyes of disappointment. Why is that?
Magical power is measured by pouring magical power into a specially-made crystal. The color it shines it with is the attribute. The brightness is the amount of magical power.
“Please pour your magical power into the crystal. Try pouring your magical power in its entirety.”
I poured my magical power just as I was told. The crystal was shining blindingly bright with many colors until it made some unpleasant noises. I feel like it got cracked.
“… That’s enough.”
It must be just my imagination. Teacher’s face has cramped. Aldin-sama was next after me.
The crystal shined in dazzling gold and broke. When I tried to withdraw in secret, I was captured by Miss Milfilia.
“Umm, this is just my personal opinion, but I suspect that the crystal got cracked when Miss Rosarin poured her magical power into it.”
Aldin-sama stared at me. I averted my gaze.
“Can’t you fix this?”
Haru took the fragmented crystal in his hands and replied after thinking.
“Haku would be more competent than me. It’s made out of Earth attribute mineral. I might be able to fix it if I do my best, but to be honest, I am bad with this kind of stuff.”
“Got it. Thank you, Haru.”
See ya then, Haru vanished.
“Yess. What’s the matterr, Rosarin-chan.”
“Can you fix this?”
“Nn? I don’t know its original shapee, so it’s original shape wouldn’t be possible, but I can fix itt. This is a magic tool for the measurement of magical power, rightt?”
“Would that be okay? Teacher?”
Confirming that teacher has approved, I asked Haku to fix it.
“Then, please fix it.”
Simultaneously with soft light, the large lump of crystal fragments turned into a palm-sized sphere.
“Its effect has not changedd. I have increased the capacity of magical power it can take too, but it will break again if you get seriouss, so please be careful, Rosarin-chan.”
“I will be returning back to work thenn. Right noww, I am planting new kind of tomatoes with Ru-kun. I will make sure to give them to you as well if they turn out tastyy, Rosarin-chan.”
Elder brother has been influenced by Gator, so he made a kitchen garden… no, the scale is different. It’s a plantation fitted inside the house. Elder brother’s Revelation – Green Thumb gets fully displayed as every vegetable he grows is delicious. Even Mother who hates veggies eats salads enthusiastically.
That very Elder brother of mine has recently started selective breeding. He started growing crops that are pest-resistant and crops that can be planted on barren land. Haku has been recently helping him of his own initiative.
“I look forward to it.”
See you later, Haku returned with those words. H, huh? Ain’t there too many gazes gathered on me?
“… Please come with me to the staff room.”
I was taken to the staff room by a different teacher. This should be lecturing… isn’t it? Since I broke something, it wouldn’t end just with putting it back together, right? I feel sick.
When we arrived at the staff room, the teacher’s eyes were sparkling. This tall and slender male teacher should be a lecturer of Magic-ology if I remember correctly.
“Do you possess several spirit protections?”
The teacher couldn’t conceal his excitement. I feel something troublesome coming. This is far from lecturing, this fellow just has interest in me, probably.
“… That’s correct.”
As I have called out Haru and Haku, I couldn’t lie there so I replied honestly.
“What are their attributes?”
“Wind and Earth.”
Teacher stiffened. I just spoke truthfully, though? The teacher couldn’t hold back his excitement as protections of opposite elements usually don’t join together. He enthusiastically spoke about my excellent amount of magical power and my attributes during the measurement and that I should join the Magic Institution. However, tough luck.
“I have no interest. I have received magic guidance from Sage-sama. This country can’t offer more than him, no?”
Shit. That was an unnecessary remark. Teacher’s eyes sparkled even more. Won’t beams come out soon… The teacher told me that he would love to receive guidance too, but to be frank, I can’t think of anyone else that could withstand Grandpa’s guidance.
I don’t feel like that’s possible. He told me to learn the basics from a book, after all…
It took quite a lot of labor to calm down the teacher and the next day, I was asked by the headmaster whether I don’t want to join the Magic Institute.
I told you that I won’t be going there for now. I resolutely declined.
