Chapter 282 - Let's Buy Time

◎ Floating Island, In Front of the Entrance to Vordo Ruins

Naoki and the others had finished collecting the materials from the Wyverns, and around when the day was on the verge of becoming night, they were able to reunite with Kazane and the others.


「Nn, good work today. Naoki as well, thanks for your hard work.」

Kazane hugged back Tatsuo, who had come to embrace her immediately after she returned, and stroked his head while also saying words of appreciation to Naoki. Naoki also snorted with satisfaction.

「I did my best too, though.」

Beside them, Lyle had a slightly sulky expression, and Kazane complacently smiled.

「Ah, Lyle, thanks for your hard work as well. Here, a souvenir.」

So saying, Kazane threw a shield medal to Lyle that was around the size of his palm.

「Ah! This, this is?」

Lyle was bewildered by it suddenly being given to him and asked that while looking at it. Kazane obediently responded.

「Nn, a magic tool from a treasure chest in the ruins called an Echo Shield Medal.」

「Magic tool?」

Kazane nodded after Lyle asked for confirmation.

「It's something similar to my Material Shield that's good at blocking enemy attacks and arrows. It can also defend against magic, so it's useful. The GONNN sound when it blocks something is quite loud, though.」

It was a magic tool that used magical power to extend a defense field using sound waves. Exactly as Kazane stated, that ability was similar to Material Shield. It couldn't be used omnidirectionally; it created a barrier of a fixed size in a specified direction according to the user's will.

「Seriously?! Rather, is it okay? Giving me this?」

Lyle blinked in surprise and asked. It was a considerably high-ranking magic tool. Lyle was well aware of how valuable it was. But Kazane was very familiar with that magical tool, and naturally, she knew how valuable it was. However, she gave it to Lyle anyway.

「Of course. You'll use it well, won't you? I'll be expecting it.」

「Ro, roger!」

Lyle nodded with sparkling eyes after Kazane spoke. Naoki behind was looking at him with a dreadful expression, but Lyle didn't notice.

In addition, after meeting with Butler No. 13, they obtained two more items from treasure chests in the Vordo Ruins:『Mask of the Supreme Ruler』, which changed the presence of the human being wearing it to that of a ruler, and the same +150 Magic Power granting『Blue Sky Coffin』that the Heroic Spirit Sieg was equipped with. The『Mask of the Supreme Ruler』was possessed by Kazane, and the『Blue Sky Coffin』was possessed by Louise.

「So then, how did it go, Aneki? We heard from Tiara that you went to the planned Grimoire Field, but...」

Wanting to end the discussion about Lyle as soon as possible, Naoki asked that, and Kazane replied「That's right.」

「A kind person taught us the way, so we finished the search in just one day, and Louise-san succeeded in learning the Grimoire Last Chapter spell called『Lightning Sphere』. Just barely, though.」

「Aneki didn't learn it?」

Kazane shook her head after Naoki asked another question.

「It's impossible for me. There's also an issue with my Wisdom, but the problem is my suitability with the Lightning system. It's a spell that no one in this party but Louise-san can learn.」

With a smile, Kazane added,

「But that summoning technique is correspondingly strong.」

Louise learned the summoning spell『Lightning Sphere』, which summoned a consumable summon. The summoned being was operated by the user, like Tiara's Flame Knights, but the power of the ability was high enough for Kazane to expressly make obtaining it their primary goal on this floating island.

Naoki himself didn't obtain『Lightning Sphere』in Zexiaharts. He had passed through the high instant death rate Vordo Ruins as quickly as possible. In the first place, Naoki's character was a healer type, so it was unsuited to learning the spell. However, Kazane's confident face suggested that the spell was quite strong.

「I think it will probably be pretty effective against the guys we'll be fighting from now on.」

「Fighting from now on? Dragon Eaters?」

Their future plans were to go to Iskanil Forest that had the Dragon Eaters, then the Dragonil Shipyard. And the only things they were planning to fight were the Dragon Eaters, but Kazane shook her head.

「No, we accepted a slightly troublesome request. One that feels unrefusable.」

Jinrai behind said「Sorry,」and Kazane replied「No, it's not something Jinrai-san needs to apologize for.」Naoki titled his head, but Kazane said it would be best to have a detailed discussion with everyone. She immediately took out the Cottage, and they had a party meeting in the large room on the third floor.

◎ Floating Island, In Front of the Vordo Ruins, Kazane Cottage, Third Floor

「For that reason, this island will fall.」


Naoki and Lyle simultaneously tilted their heads after Kazane broached the subject at the beginning of the party meeting. Tatsuo nodded and said『Is that so?』He was a good and honest child. Mefirus summoned by Tiara didn't say anything, but he groaned a little.

The other members had already heard the story, so they weren't surprised, but they had complicated expressions. After all, no matter how one looked at it, it was a story that exceeded the coping capacity of a single party. It had been some time since they had heard it, but even so, it seemed none of them had finished processing it yet.

「No, Aneki. Is that some kind of joke?」

After Naoki's question, Kazane looked at him with scornful eyes.

「Naoki, Onee-chan is sad. Since when has Naoki started doubting Onee-chan's words? You made me mad, so I'm severing our sibling relationship.」

「Eh? Wait a second, Aneki... huh? But if that happens, doesn't that mean I would be able to marry Aneki?」

「You won't be able to. Since you can't, please die.」

As that usual sibling exchange occurred, Lyle ignored them and questioned Jinrai.

「Grandpa, what does she mean?」

「It's exactly like she said. It won't happen immediately, but it seems that this floating island will fall within the next 10 years.」

Jinrai too readily replied to Lyle's words. However, Lyle couldn't understand with only that as the explanation.

「No, even if you say that, I don't understand.」

「Hmm. We heard from Morphia, didn't we? The story about part of the island being detached by the devil's attack 700 years ago.」


Lyle nodded.

「Even after that, this floating island was moving, but the magical balance of the whole collapsed due to the loss of that part of the island. It seems some of the Power Stones used for controlling this floating island are overloaded. That overload will reach its limit in approximately 10 years.」


Lyle was lost for words

「So, concretely, what will happen with the fall?」

The entanglement with his older sister now over, Naoki asked that question, and Louise answered.

「It looks like it won't be a slow fall. Inside, there are people of the machine race doing their best, but maintaining the status quo of the island is the best they can do. The floating island is fixed in place here due to the flow of Magic Particles, so they can't control the island anymore. Moving it somewhere else or soft-landing is impossible. We were told that eventually, the island's controls will break, and it will start falling apart and fall down.」

Crumble and immediately fall. It was a terrible situation.

「But even if it falls, there aren't any people living below? As long as the Birdmen are evacuated, won't it be ok?」

It seemed like a good idea to Lyle, so he said that, and Naoki tilted his head.

「No, won't the fall of an object with this much mass cause various problems?」

Louise agreed with Naoki's words.

「Well, that's right. But the biggest problem is the Dark Forest below. The Odanobunagas will lose their place and flee throughout Hyvern. If they are crushed by the island's fall, it will probably be ok, but high-ranking monsters have excellent crisis-sensing ability.」


Lyle groaned. Things like that throughout Hyvern... Lyle shuddered when he thought about it.

「Well, for that reason, we should do something about it, right? That's what we're here to talk about.」

Kazane so concluded the explanation.

『That is to say, there's something we can do?』

Since the explanation had finally reached a stopping place, Mefirus asked that to confirm.

「Well, that's right. In short, the problem is that the Power Stones are about to break. In that case, it will be fine if we get new Power Stones.」

『Well, in theory. But won't the situation with the island's balance being destroyed remain unchanged?』

Mefirus' words were correct. And, naturally, Kazane and the others already knew that from talking with Butler No. 13.

「Yeah. Unless the Sky Emperor's Tower is returned, the problem will remain a problem. But we can shift the timeline from 10 years to 100 years.」

So saying, Kazane looked at everyone.

「If we do that, we'll buy time to deal with it. Even if we ask someone else to do the rest, I think we should buy them time.」

「So there are prospects of finding Power Stones, right?」

Lyle said with a nervous expression, and Kazane nodded. This was a conversation about the future of his motherland. Not being nervous would be impossible. And Kazane had nodded to Lyle.

「The place where the Dragon Boats were built, Dragonil Shipyard. The request this time is to find Power Stones there and give them to Butler No. 13 in the Vordo Ruins.」

Kazane:「100 years later? Well, Yumika has a longer lifespan, so we'll leave it to her! We'll have her say「I may as well give it a try!」and push it back while shining with green light.」

Yumika:「No way. That's a Mob's line.」
