An Unconscious Genius Magic Tool Maker Wants to Live a Leisurely Life – Chapter 25
Chapter 25: Am I not normal?
“…Shall we start working then?”
We lift our heavy spirits.
The conversation was enjoyable, and before we knew it, we had spent nearly two hours.
Naturally, no work had been done.
Just like when I came into this room, a large number of purchase orders were piled up on the table.
We both sighed at the same time.
Despite our determination to do our best, it was still a difficult task.
To be honest, I didn’t want to do it.
“Freya-san, could you go check on the magic institution?”
“I’ve already finished that. I took care of it before coming here.”
“Really?! That’s a relief. It’s a hassle to move around there.”
“I thought so, that’s why I did it beforehand.”
Lidoria-san grabs my hand and shakes it up and down while expressing her gratitude.
“It’s really reassuring. Then all that’s left are the purchase orders here.”
“Just our usual work. I’ll take care of the purchase orders, so Lidoria-san, please focus on administrative tasks.”
“Thank you. I’ll help too once I finish here.”
Naturally, the division of labor was decided.
I took on the tasks that I had been doing at the court up until now.
Lidoria-san had been doing most of the clerical work in place of the previous director, regardless of the amount of work, it was more efficient for each of us to take on the tasks we were used to.
I immediately started working.
My job was to process the purchase orders sent to the director.
I made the magic tools that could be made on the spot, and for those that required mass production, I made a design and shared it with other magic tool makers.
It’s physically impossible to make hundreds or thousands of them alone.
Even the previous director understood that and didn’t ask me to do everything.
Once the core of the magic tool was made, the outside could be made separately and then combined later.
The magic crystal used for making the bracelet is the core.
Only we magic tool makers can engrave the magic into the magic crystal.
“…Wow, Freya-san, that’s amazing.”
“I’ve never seen anyone write so quickly like that.”
Lidoria-san was impressed as she watched me imbue magic into the magic crystal.
It seems that I work faster than an ordinary magic tool maker.
What I had vaguely felt was confirmed by a colleague who said, “Are you only doing one step now?”
“No, it’s four steps.”
“Four?! Four steps at that speed?”
Lidoria-san was extremely surprised.
Four steps means that at least four inscriptions are needed.
The more complex the magic effect of the magic tool, the more steps are required.
As the number of steps increases, the difficulty of creation also increases.
“It looks like you’re working at the speed of one step…that.”
“Is that so? I thought it was normal since it’s always like this.”
“It’s not normal at all. The interval for settling is also abnormally fast. Normally, it would take at least three minutes to finish one of the four steps, right?”
“Eh, three minutes?”
I can make one in about thirty seconds.
The interval for settling refers to the time between inscribing one magic and the next one.
If you want to make consecutive posts, make sure the magic is properly settled before doing so.
If you continue to write forcibly, the magic may repel each other and there is a risk of a major accident.
“By the way, I want to ask, what is the most number of steps you have ever done?”
“Um, I think it was 21 steps.”
“21… that’s in another dimension. I don’t think there has ever been a magic tool maker who has completed that many steps before.”
“Is it really that much…?”
It was certainly tough at that time.
It took an hour to create, and if I made a mistake, the magic would have exploded and caused a disaster.
I was making a barrier to protect a certain town.
“Uh…Looking back now… that might not have been my job in the first place.”
“It was definitely a request that came to the director. I think she entrusted it to Freya-san because she couldn’t do it herself. Then Freya-san completed it easily… I can pretty much imagine what happened after that.”
“Oh… come to think of it, I feel like I’ve been getting more difficult work since then…”
She (the former director) must have felt a blow to her pride when I solved the case that she thought was impossible.
At that time, I didn’t realize it, but now I understand it well.
The former director wanted to crush me completely.
“I wonder what she’s doing now.”
“Well? I don’t want to see her face anymore. Such a person.”
I also don’t want to see her if possible.
She always gave me a lecture whenever I met her, and I didn’t feel good about it.
However, it would be a lie to say that it doesn’t bother me at all. If there is a chance, I would like to see where the person who escaped from the court is and what she are doing.
We continue to work while thinking about such things.
In the evening, the regular time is approaching.
One minute left until the end of work… thirty seconds… ten seconds——
“You’re right, we’re finished.”
We managed to complete it just in time.
We exchange glances and do a victory pose.
It feels refreshing.
“It’s been a while since we finished on time. Thank you, Freya-san, you’ve really helped.”
“No, it’s my job.”
“You’re dependable. Please take care of me from tomorrow——”
There’s a thud, and something rolls.
Our gazes go to the floor.
There was a sphere with a hole emitting a pale blue light rolling there.
“Is this… a golem’s core?”
