Chapter 3-48 : The Audience Room Once Again (part 2)
Queen Kushana asked Mylia about the spell she used to send Robin home while staring at her curiously.
（…Aa! Could it be that’s the real reason why she called me here?）
「Ahh… I see… That spell was too flashy after all… I should have known that it was a bad idea… Haha…」(Chloe)
Next to Mylia, Chloe glanced down and whispered to herself while smiling with blank eyes.
Chloe wanted to keep Mylia’s weird spells a secret if possible.
She didn’t want people to find out that Mylia could use uncommon spells because she was worried Mylia would get in trouble with people who were crazy about magic like the members of the Kingdom Magic Research Institute and… the queen.
However, she couldn’t come up with a better idea. She was sure that Mylia’s Jet Rocket Magic was the best way to forcefully get Robin home. She thought that if she hired some mercenaries to send Robin home instead, Robin might be able to escape. She was a cunning and clever woman after all.
When Chloe’s mind started to fill with worries, the queen sighed.
「Mylia, can’t you answer me?」(Kushana)
「Th, That’s… Umm…」(Mylia)
Seeing Mylia’s troubled face, Queen Kushana realized something. She then smiled at Mylia.
「Mylia, your spell can be useful for transporting people and goods. It will make people’s lives easier and make this kingdom more prosperous. Don’t worry. I won’t do anything bad with the spells you invented.」(Kushana)
「I, I see…」(Mylia)
（I’d be happy if the spells I invented can be useful for people… Anyway, I think I should tell her about my spell.）
Mylia was relieved for the time being.
「Umm, I named the spell “Jet Rocket Magic.” It’s a wind spell that can send someone flying by harnessing the power of a super-strong gale that comes from that person’s feet. The strong wind will hit the ground and push that person upward, sending them into the sky.」(Mylia)
「So it’s a wind spell… Interesting. How did you come up with that idea?」(Kushana)
「Umm… It just popped into my head. Hehe…」(Mylia)
（I can’t tell her that I got the inspiration from rockets and jet aircrafts…）
「Your Majesty, may I speak?」(Dalia)
Dalia, who had been silently listening, bent her upper body forward and asked the queen’s permission to talk.
After Queen Kushana replied to Dalia with a nod, Dalia stepped forward and looked at Mylia.
（Geh! Honestly, I really don’t want to talk with this magic maniac…）
「Mylia, I’m the head of the Royal Magicians in this kingdom and I know a lot about magic. Sending someone flying to a designated location over a long distance with wind magic should be impossible, but how did you do it?」(Dalia)
Dalia fixed her glasses’ position and stared at Mylia curiously as she asked.
Thinking that she didn’t have a choice but to explain, Mylia took out a magic stone from her magic bag and glanced at Chloe.
Chloe then sighed and whispered to Mylia.
「It can’t be helped… It’s better to explain how your spell works than make the queen angry…」(Chloe)
Mylia nodded and showed the magic stone in her hand to the queen and Dalia.
「Before you can launch someone or something with this Jet Rocket Magic, first of all, you need to set the GPS points along the way to the destination. After that, you add a GPS function into the magic stones you will use to perform this spell.」(Mylia)
「Ho, Hold on! Jii pee es…? What is that?」(Dalia)
「It’s GPS. Umm…」(Mylia)
Thinking that it would be quicker to show how it worked than to explain, Mylia took four more magic stones from her magic stones and enchanted all five magic stones in her hands with wind magic.
「First of all, you need to enhance magic stones with wind magic. The number of magic stones needed depends on how long the distance is. After that, you need to decide the route and set up GPS points in the air with GPS Magic.」(Mylia)
After saying that, Mylia used Levitation Magic to make herself float in the air.
She then applied her GPS Magic at five points in the air while flying around the audience room. The last point which was the destination was the center of the room.
After that, she returned to where she was standing and applied a GPS function to the magic stones she was holding.
「Now we have five GPS points scattered around this room. The last GPS point is the destination which is the center of this room.」(Mylia)
As she said that, Mylia took out a small leather bag from her magic bag and put the five magic stones that had been enchanted with wind magic and GPS function in it.
「Oh, right. I forgot to mention it but these magic stones won’t activate at the same time. They will activate one by one and automatically replace each other as they reach each GPS point. Now, I’m going to send this leather bag flying. Watch.」(Mylia)
Mylia put the leather bag on her palms and activated her Jet Rocket Magic.
The first magic stone activated and took the leather bag to the first GPS point, after that the second magic stone activated and sent it to the second GPS point.
The leather bag was flying around the audience room from one GPS point to another, and after it was repeated five times, the leather bag fell right at the center of the room which was the destination.
「And just like that. I hope you understand how I sent the landmine woman home.」(Mylia)
Dalia was stunned. She was lost for words for a second.
On the other hand, the queen bent her body a little forward. She found it interesting.
「Ahem. So… Mylia, did you set up, umm, GPS points one by one from this city to the Atwood Territory before you launched the landmine woman?」(Dalia)
Dalia cleared her throat to calm herself and asked Mylia.
「That’s right. There were a total of twenty GPS points from here to the Atwood’s Mansion. I set them up on my way back after I freed Jasmine onee-sama from the mansion.」(Mylia)
「Don’t tell me… Did you do that while continuously flying all the way back to the royal capital? 」(Dalia)
「I did… What about it?」(Mylia)
「Normally, you can’t continuously fly for a long time over a long distance no matter how good you are at magic because the amount of magical power you have is limited. Flying from the Atwood Territory to this city is just… ridiculous!」(Dalia)
「Is that so? But it’s not that hard for me.」(Mylia)
Dalia face-palmed and shook her head. She couldn’t believe how ridiculous Mylia was.
（Uhh… I forgot that I had to keep the fact that I have a lot more magical power than normal people a secret… Oh, well. I think everyone has realized it already.）
「Your Majesty, it seems that Mylia is on a whole different level…」(Dalia)
The queen replied to Dalia with a deep nod.
「Unfortunately, I think implementing Mylia’s Jet Rocket Magic as a transportation method will be extremely difficult. We will need tons of magic stones and many magicians who can enchant the magic stones with wind magic. The cost will be outrageously high for sure. In the first place, I don’t even know if our people can learn Mylia’s GPS Magic.」(Dalia)
「Hmm, you’ve got a point…」(Kushana)
After talking with the queen, Dalia returned her gaze to Mylia.
「Say, Mylia, do you think I’ll be able to learn your GPS Magic?」(Dalia)
「Umm… I don’t know, but it might be very difficult.」(Mylia)
Mylia was able to invent that spell because she knew what GPS was and how it worked, but none of the people in this world knew what it was.
「I see… If only you were not a student of the Girls’ Royal Academy, I would definitely ask you to teach me… Hahh… What a shame.」(Dalia)
Dalia looked like she still wanted to say something but because the queen glanced at her, telling her to back off, she reluctantly stepped backward.
（It’s too bad that my Jet Rocket Magic can’t be used to help people but I’m relieved now that this topic is over. If it kept going, that magic maniac might start researching this spell and force me to join.）
While thinking that, Mylia walked toward the center of the room. She stretched out her hand toward the leather bag that was lying on the floor and instantly moved it into her magic bag.
Chloe let out a sigh of relief when Mylia returned to her spot.
At the same time, suddenly Mylia heard someone’s voice in her head.
『…onee-chan… Mylia onee-chan… can you hear me…?』(?)
Mylia spontaneously looked around the audience room.
Seeing Mylia’s confused face, the queen asked her.
「What’s the matter, Mylia?」(Kushana)
「Ah, I’m sorry. It’s nothing. I thought I heard someone calling me but it seemed to be my imagination. Hehe.」(Mylia)
Mylia hurriedly waved her hands and answered the queen but then that voice was heard again.
『Mylia onee-chan, can you hear me? It’s me, Leaf.』(Leaf)
Mylia was surprised but at the same time, she was happy that Leaf called her.
She bowed her head slightly and glanced at the floor.
『Hello! Is it really you, Leaf?』(Mylia)
『”Hello”? What does it mean?』(Leaf)
『Fufu. It’s a greeting when you’re talking with someone on a phoneー I mean, talking with someone using Phone Magic. By the way, you’re finally able to use Phone Magic! I’m glad for you!』(Mylia)
『I keep practicing every day.』(Leaf)
『I see. Umm, Leaf, I’m glad that you called me but I’m busy right now. You can call me again later.』(Mylia)
『Where are you right now?』(Leaf)
『Uhh, are you listening? I’m busy right now.』(Mylia)
『Are you at school or in town?』(Leaf)
（She’s not listening…）
As usual, Leaf couldn’t read the situation.
Mylia glanced at the queen, Dalia, and Chloe in a split second and turned her gaze toward the floor again.
『Leaf, I’m really busy right now. I’m currently standing in front of the queen in the audience room. We can talk again later.』(Mylia)
『The audience room. Got it.』(Leaf)
『G, “Got it”? Wait, Leaf, don’t tell me… Leaf? Leaf…?』(Mylia)
（She hung up…）
Seeing Mylia’s weird behavior, Queen Kushana looked at Mylia with suspicion.
「Ah, I’m sorry, Your Majesty.」(Mylia)
「Do you want to go to the toilet?」(Kushana)
「N, No. It’s just…」(Mylia)
At that moment, the air in the center of the room distorted, creating a mirage-like rift in the air, and then…
A girl appeared from the rift.
She had long green hair and was wearing a white dress. Her skin was as white as snow and there was a large leaf on her head. She looked sleepy for some reason.
「L, Leaf!? I knew it!」(Mylia)
「Mylia onee-chan, I came to play as promised.」(Leaf)
（Honestly, I’m happy that she came but… Aaaahh! Just how bad she is at reading situations!? ）
No one would have thought that a dryad would appear in front of the queen in the audience room of the royal palace that day.
