The Magician Kunon sees everything - Chapter 78
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
“It’s an old imperial silver coin!”
The contents were safe.
Cassis shouted happily.
The leather wallet Sandra had picked up at the bottom of the lake contained a dozen coins.
The wallet had been in the water for so long that it had deteriorated so much that it crumbled when touched.
Sandra carefully brought it ashore, using both hands to rescue it.
“Ah, money from the olden days.”
“I think it’s a drop from the war years.”
“Maybe it’s…. a lost item, or maybe it’s just a wallet that was dropped.”
“Oh, maybe that’s it.”
The experimental team, including Yushita, also gathers and gives their impressions of the found objects at the bottom of the water.
Kunon thinks so too.
Perhaps it was from the time the Empire invaded, wanting the magical city of Dillashik.
Something happened to it, and it has been sunk to the bottom of the lake since then.
Maybe the owner… with the whole thing.
Nowadays, the scars of the warring era are gone, and the lake is just beautiful.
In those days, many people must have died here.
“There must be something more! Gold coins?”
“Yes! There was one, so there must be more!”
Cassis and Sandra don’t seem to care about the historical background or history.
They are probably the type of girls who want money immediately.
I guess we’ll have to change our policy a little bit.
Yushita, the leader of the team, listens to their opinions and says, “For now, we’re going to go back to the bottom of the water.”
“For the time being, don’t touch anything at the bottom of the water anymore.”
“The only things we can pick up here are old coins.”
“I think we can split it between all of us and get at most 100,000 to 500,000 Nekkas per head. The lake is not that big.”
The items from that time are probably no longer useful, and I don’t think there’s a lot of money sunk into this lake.
“It’s more likely to be of historical value. Let’s sell this experimental data to historians and make money out of them.”
Let’s wind it up, but that’s the way to say it.
But I understand what you mean.
A wallet that used to contain coins is so fragile that it can be broken just by touching it.
In other words, everything at the bottom of the water should be in a similar state.
Then, rather than forcing him to raid the place for money, he decided that it would be more profitable to sell it to a historian who would find value in everything.
“I’d be happy with a hundred thousand!”
Cassis barked full of desire.
“I’d be happy with five hundred Nekkas for the money I found!”
I understand Sandra’s feelings.
No matter how much money you have, anyone would be happy to find five hundred Nekka. Five hundred Nekkas has a mysterious charm. If anything, it may be more pleasing to the senses than a thousand Nekkas.
“I told you that I would take the money from the scholars. And Cassis has nothing to do with it.”
Cassis noticed that she, who is the most excited, is the most outsider.
She noticed that everyone’s eyes were somewhat cold toward her.
“No! No, no! Please let me join you!”
The moment he realized this, Cassis became spoiled.
“You’re going to use this technology to go look for sunken pirate ships in the sea, or Lisa Florin, anyway! You’re going to pick up lost jewelry and artifacts of the Nievean school in the old empire, or the early accessorizing of the Eclat Zartland, aren’t you? I want some! Oh, or just a gold bar! Big and thick!”
His greed for both goods and money is on full display.
The eyes of Yushita, still cold and heartless, are focused on him.
What are you going to do about this miser?
“…… I wanted a good wind magician anyway.”
There was the travel time, the searching for the shipwreck, and the carrying of the cargo when they pulled out.
Yushita decided that letting Cassis join was not a bad idea, as she did not think it would be possible to conduct a major sea search with only the current members of the group.
If he is this greedy, he won’t betray you in a strange way or leak information about the experiment.
He would only be getting less for himself.
“Can you be a connoisseur of jewelry?”
“Of course! I’m good with art, too! I love antiques! I love jewelry even more! And I love gold!”

“Well, we’re still good. We’re in the same faction, so we’re not strangers.”
Some of the members had never spoken to Cassis before, but they were at least aware that they were from the same faction.
The actuality that they are not really known to each other is a surprise to some people, but whatever.
“You don’t like it when your Senpai who clearly says he doesn’t like you participates, do you?”
It was a statement made out of concern.
If Yushita had known about the relationship between Kunon and Cassis, she would not have chosen Cassis to help her.
“I love it! I love you! I love you, Kunon!”
It was the moment when she gave up her pride and willpower for the sake of money.
“Hey, Kunon! You love me too, don’t you? You like me, don’t you? Tell me you like me……!”
Crammed by the situation, Kunon nodded proudly.
“Of course I like you. A man who doesn’t respond to a woman’s begging to this point is not a gentleman.”
Kunon has decided that he recognizes Cassis as a woman.
So there is only one answer.
“……Ku, Mr. Kunon,…………Hmph. Don’t get carried away. I’m only being nice to you now.”
The unexpectedly dignified acceptance made Cassis more upset.
I had not seen a shred of kindness from Cassis in the exchange up to this point.
But, well, if Kunon doesn’t mind, the decision is made.
“If you don’t mind, let’s include Cassis.
Well, anyway, five or six people are not enough, as I tried. I think we should have more help when we go into the water.
Even a lake of this size doesn’t seem to have enough help.”
This is my impression from actual experimentation in this area.
I had the impression that five water magicians were not enough.
If they really intended to search for shipwrecks at sea, they should increase the number of people in order to take all possible precautions.
“Also, I wish the representative would come.”
Kunon was strongly attracted by these words.
“Is this senior Luluomet?”
What Yushita calls a representative would be a representative of the “rational faction.”
In other words, it is Luluomet with a tree of shadows behind him.
“Yes. Yes, I feel safe with him.”
Peace of mind.
That seems to be the perception of the people around him.
– Luluomet, the representative of the “rational faction,” is a dark attribute.
Kunon heard this information from a client.
Light, darkness, and demon are rare attributes, and Luluomet has one of them, the dark attribute.
What can the dark attribute do?
There is no information on all of them because there are so few of them, and Kunon knows nothing at all about what darkness can do.
So that is why it is very interesting.
Unexpectedly, though, this thing got bigger and bigger at a rapid pace.
To be honest, Kunon was more excited when he was told that Luluomet might participate than when he was told about the treasure.
“- Hey. So this is what it’s like underwater.”
Having taken all the data, Kunon finally went underwater as well.
Actually experiencing it was part of the experiment.
The water was not deep.
This time, air was sent from the water’s edge to create a layer of air just enough for one person to walk on the bottom of the water.
I looked up and saw a fish.
It was a large freshwater fish I had seen in a picture book. It swam gracefully, twisting its body.
“Can you see it?”
Kunon walked slowly, looking around.
“My friend wants to build an aquaculture pond. I think I can be of help.”
“I don’t see it,” she said to Cassis. “Is that what you want to build at your school?”
“You can’t do it, can you?”
“I heard there used to be freshwater fish ponds. I heard it worked pretty well.”
“Does that mean there’s a problem?”
“Yes. Some idiot had been dumping expired magic potions, leftover media, half-extra solvents, and solutions into the ponds because he was too lazy to dispose of them properly.
I don’t know how it all worked, but the monstrous fish multiplied. I heard it was very difficult to clean up the mess.”
“Really? That’s an interesting story.”
“You’re interested in everything, aren’t you?”
“You’re interested in jewelry, aren’t you? The Lisa Florin is a large aristocratic ship representative of the old empire. At the time of its sinking, many important people of the Empire were on board.”
“Yes, yes! The royalty of the surrounding countries was also on board because they were going to hold a ceremony on board to appoint the next emperor of the empire! There’s definitely some treasure on board!”
“I hope you find it.”
Surprisingly calm, Kunon enjoyed the underwater walk with Cassis. Read the most updated version of this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at Novel Multiverse – “NovelMultiverse dot com”
