Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
We walked steadily through the land where no vegetation grew.
After placing a reasonable distance from the people preparing for camp, Cain and Gianluca faced each other.
“By the way, what is the Mage Facca Focca?”
“Facca Focca is amazing! He makes everyone happy with magic. Placing magic on the tablecloth where your favorite food will come out for the hungry children or giving wings on their back through magic to the child whose important item had been flown by the wind onto a tree, and the likes.”
Gianluca explained with his utmost effort with twinkles in his eyes. It seemed that the type was different from the magic of Limuto Break that Cain knew. He had never heard of the magic where favorite food came out, or wings grew on the back. It all seemed like very useful magic so he wanted to know more if he had the opportunity to study about it.
“The Mage Facca Focca is a picture book. It’s a popular series with children, and there are around 10 works.”
It was Senshur who gave it away. He was Julian’s personal knight but he was assigned to Cain and Gianluca as an escort just in case.
Senshur, a knight who was smiling cheerfully at the 12-year-old and 9-year-old children, seemed to be in a good mood.
“Most children read about the Mage Facca Focca. It’s not an exaggeration to say that thanks to that, the impression of mages in our country is not bad.”
“Because he’s a mage that makes everyone happy?”
Senshur nodded steadily, spreading out his hands while agreeing.
“Well, His Royal Highness PrinceJulian did say that but, I think he really wanted to see magic up close. After all, magic is like a dream. Now, now, magic practice, right? I’ll stop it if it gets dangerous so please go right ahead.”
Senshur, a knight with a large body but he took three steps backward before stopping as he gestured to them to start.
If you were born with magical power, you would be shackled and not able to use magic… It was just a moment ago that he had heard this story so when he was treated like that, Cain was not sure on how to feel about it.
What was it? What was the meaning of this?
“Well, no matter. Gianluca-sama. First, let’s be aware of the magical power in our body. Please hold hands with me.”
“Yes, please teach me!”
Cain and Gianluca held each of their right hand and left hands and made a circle. Cain taught the basics in order to use magic while remembering the first thing he had learned from Tirnoa.
After spending about an hour doing this and that, Gianluca was able to circulate and refine his magical power in his body, albeit unstable.
“Then, try casting the spell after me.”
“Small flames, come forth from my hands, spread flame as my command.”
“Small flames, come forth from my hands, spread flame as my command.”
From the tip of the hand that Cain held out, a pillar of flame about the size of an adult’s arm swirled and leaped forward, exploding in the air about three meters away and disappeared.
Gianluca imitated Cain and from the tip of his hand a fist-sized flame popped out with a cute sound and went out to about 30 cm and disappeared.
“Did you see it, Cain !? The flames came out!” Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com
“Yes, I saw it. It’s amazing! It’s excellent to be able to succeed in one shot, Gianluca-sama.”
Cain praised while stroking Gianluca’s head. Gianluca blushed while laughing shyly.
“Then, next, let’s put out a ball of water.”
Continuing that way, they went through the lowest levels of various attributes in order, and they found out that Gianluca seemed to be compatible with fire, wind, and earth. And similar to Cain, he had no luck with the attributes of holiness and darkness.
“For holiness and darkness, since I can’t use them, it might be because I’m not able to teach well about it, so if you have the chance, have someone who can teach you.”
“It’s fun to be able to use magic, Cain. Can I practice more?”
Gianluca looked up at Cain’s face with an exciting smile. It was the same expression that Diana had when she learned magic from Tirnoa and the first time she used magic. Cain squinted and smiled at the nostalgia.
“Gianluca-sama. After this, we have to procure ingredients for dinner in the forest. We have to catch a lot of prey and make Julian-sama speechless. Let’s practice magic while preserving magical power.”
“Make Brother speechless.”
“That’s right, let’s show him that you don’t need a shackle because you can control magic! So, for today, let’s focus on practicing the magic of fire.”
Gianluca was very honest. Even for the episode when he got engaged to Diana in the game and he gave her up to his brother who was a womanizer, Cain suspected that there must be something more to the story.
If it was for the reason that he wanted to marry the heroine, it would be enough to just decline the engagement with Diana. Cain wanted to figure out what was going on in that part and prevent the engagement between Diana and Julian.
“Small flames… come forth from my hands, spread flame…as my command!”
Senshur stood side by side with Cain who was watching Gianluca practicing magic while carefully chanting as to not fumble with the words while chanting, and as to not make mistakes.
“Coming from a country where magic is common, you must’ve thought that the tool that suppresses magical power is unpleasant. I apologize for that.”
With that said, he felt that Senshur seemed to bow his head slightly. Cain was looking straight at Gianluca, so he didn’t even know what kind of pose that Senshur was making, standing next to him.
“Like the village near the border with Break, we don’t even have shackles for the people who can use magic. Since there are also frequent exchanges across the borders. However, we will have them attaching a simple shackle when entering the royal capital.”
“It’s not something that you should apologize for. It’s a useful power, so I think not using the people who have those power as slaves is good enough.”
If everyone had the useful ability, then it was a common ability. But when only a small part of the people had it, it would become either a privileged class or being used as tools. It was an extreme example, but it was common to be biased toward either side.
“It’s easy to be hated when having different abilities. There is also the aspect of protecting people with abilities from discrimination and exploitation by letting them live as ordinary people. The mage Facca Focca is also a type of propaganda.”
Cain used magic to light firewood in the dormitory, but he wasn’t hated just because they thought that it was convenient. Truthfully, he actually used water magic to clean the bath in the dormitory, but Maddy, who was cleaning it with him, only said, “It’s good to be with Cain because it’s easy.”
It may be because crimes and violence by mages had been thoroughly removed from this country. There may also be an effect from the popular picture books using only magic that makes people happy.
“I prefer a world where the abilities that we have rightfully valued.”
Cain whispered while watching Gianluca practicing magic with his utmost effort.
Senshur, who stands next to him, replied with a lonely voice, “It may be possible if everyone lives in a fair and upright world.” Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com
