Chapter 4-20 : Tania Crystal (part 2)

 

「Ara, Mylia, welcome back~」(Titania)

「Welcome back, Mylia onee-chan.」(Leaf)

「Un, I’m back!」(Mylia)

「I thought you would stay in the royal capital for a while.」(Titania)

「Yeah, I was planning to help Onee-chan and Aria-san, but there’s something I need to do. Master, we should find a way to stop the meteor. The sooner, the better. Do you have any ideas?」(Mylia)

「Hmm, I think the best and the simplest way to stop a meteor is to make a barrier.」(Titania)

「Barrier, huh…? I wonder if we can make it permanent. I can make a barrier but it’s only temporary. I want a barrier that can protect the new Atwood Territory for a long time.」(Mylia)

「Then there’s only one option; making a magic stone that can deploy a strong long-lasting barrier ourselves.」(Titania)

「I see. Is it possible?」(Mylia)

「Yeah, but we will need a strong and sturdy one. Just like when we made the rocket shoes for Robin, I will make the magic stones and you will be the one to fill them with magical power.」(Titania)

「Alright!」(Mylia)

「I will help too.」(Leaf)

Thus, their research to make an ultimate barrier magic tool began. Titania would make the magic stone, and Mylia would be the one to fill it with magical power.

However, they didn’t know that it would be much harder than they expected.

 

〇〇〇

 

「Mylia, it’s done. Let’s try this one!」(Titania)

Being called by Titania, Mylia approached the workshop bench and looked at the magic stone that was placed on it.

It looked like a transparent crystal but small magic formulas were written on it.

「Whoa… This one is beautiful, and it looks somewhat powerful too!」(Mylia)

「Right~? I have a good feeling about this one.」(Titania)

Titania smiled at Mylia with a triumphant face.

It had been ten days and many times of trial and error since they began their research.

Finally, Titania made a magic stone that looked promising.

Mylia used Appraisal Magic to check the magic stone and scanned the magic formulas written on it.

She then used Hologram Magic to make a projection of the magic formulas in the air like a 3D holographic picture.

There were three magic formulas written in three magic circles.

(Hoo~ Master really is skillful at writing magic formulas like this…)

From the magic formula, Mylia learned that the magic stone was endowed with a function that could endure physical damage at a certain level. It also had the ability to cover a large area for a long time. Just like what Mylia wanted.

Mylia could cast a protective spell and make a barrier, but it will be temporary. She wanted the new Atwood Territory to be protected permanently because she would be absent sometimes.

After appraising the magic stone, Mylia started filling it with her magical power.

「Alright. It’s time to test this one. I hope it won’t fail this time.」(Titania)

「Ah, before that, let me take a picture of it. We might need this magic formula for the next one.」(Mylia)

「Good idea!」(Titania)

Mylia took a picture of it using her Camera Magic just in case. She would at least have the picture of the magic formula if it failed and broke into pieces.

It would save Titania a lot of time and effort because she could just trace the formula from the picture and copy it to the next magic stone.

「Mylia, you sure have created so many weird spells. I’ve never seen spells like Camera Magic or Hologram Magic before.」(Titania)

「Mylia onee-san is a genius.」(Leaf)

「Fufu. I can’t argue with that.」(Titania)

Titania shrugged her shoulders while Leaf watched Mylia do her things with sleepy yet curious eyes.

「Alright. Now it’s ready to be tested.」(Mylia)

「Let’s go then.」(Titania)

Titania grabbed the magic stone and led Mylia and Leaf to the open area they had been using for testing ground.

She then buried the magic stone in the ground while Mylia and Leaf flew into the air with magic.

「Mylia, bring the meteor down!」(Titania)

Titania raised her thumb up, giving a signal to Mylia.

「Aye, sir!」(Mylia)

Mylia nodded and took out ten big boulders she had stored in her magic bag beforehand. She used Gravity Magic to make them float in the air and then squeezed them into one enormous rounded boulder that was as big as a typical luxury three-story inn in the royal capital.

The rounded boulder Mylia made was huge, but of course, it was much, much smaller compared to the meteor she saw in the Future Sight. It wasn’t even one-tenth the size of the meteor.

「Ignition!」(Mylia)

Soon after, Mylia used a fire spell to envelop the giant boulder with flame and turned it into a fake meteor.

「Whoa…」(Leaf)

Leaf, who was floating next to Mylia, looked up at the fake meteor Mylia made with her eyes wide open.

「Here we go!」(Mylia)

「Throw it at me as hard as you can!」(Titania)

Saying that, Titania, who was standing next to the spot where she buried the magic stone, raised her arms, ready to destroy the fake meteor in case the magic stone didn’t work.

Mylia threw the fake meteor down and used Gravity Magic to make it fall faster.

Right after, a hemi-spherical barrier appeared, and almost at the same time, the fake meteor hit the barrier.

BRRRRRRRRRRーー!!!

The ground was shaking and the loud sound of two big objects colliding was heard.

As the fake meteor hit the barrier, the outer side of the barrier was moving like ripples in the water.

The ripples kept sucking the physical damage from the fake meteor and reducing the impact.

Eventually, the fake meteor crumbled and fell to the ground.

The barrier successfully protected the area around Titania from the fake meteor.

「Master, are you alrightー?」(Mylia)

「I’m fine~!」(Titania)

When the cloud of dust began to disappear, Titania waved her hands at Mylia.

「Alright. Now, let’s see if it survived…」(Titania)

Titania then crouched down and nervously dug up the magic stone she buried.

After confirming the condition of the magic stone, she smiled and raised her hands at Mylia.

「Mylia, we did it! The magic stone is not broken!」(Titania)

「Really!?」(Mylia)

「Oohh~」(Leaf)

Mylia and Leaf then immediately descended in front of Titania and looked at the unscratched magic stone in Titania’s hands.

「Whoa! It survived! As expected from my master! I knew you could make an exceptional magic stone!」(Mylia)

「Of course~ Who do you think I am~?」(Titania)

Titania put her hands on her waist and smiled at Mylia with a smug face.

「I think this is the best magic stone I’ve ever made. I will name it “Tania Crystal”!」(Titania)

「I think that’s a good name! By the way, how did you make it?」(Mylia)

「I used quartz as the base material and mixed it with other strong minerals and jewels.」(Titania)

「Mylia onee-chan, I helped melt the materials.」(Leaf)

「Is that so? Well done, Leaf!」(Mylia)

Mylia smiled and stroked Leaf’s head in appreciation for her hard work.

「Now we need to mass produce this Tania Crystal and set them up around the Atwood Territory. We will need a lot of them.」(Titania)

「It’s gonna be a tough job but let’s do our best!」(Mylia)

It seemed that Mylia had to stay at Titania’s house for a while longer to mass-produce the Tania Crystals.

  1. Somehow… I wouldn’t be shocked if the vision was referring to this meteor, although that would be a hilarious twist (I always expected the meteor to be made by Mylia anyways, though I thought it was to scare her father and second sister.)

  2. That would be hilarious…. Wait didn’t shiity father break something before meteor came is actually this Tania crystal? Maybe….

  3. I’m guessing the meteor makes more sense being made by mylia, because who would even give an artifact that powerful to a fucking moron like mylia’s father? unless he found it laying around in the forest or some noble who wants mylia gone etc. would have to be an equally retarded noble lol.
    I say mylia’s father, because I can’t be bothered to remember his name xD
