Reincarnated Witch’s Carefree Gourmet Journey – Chapter 105

𝐌𝐞𝐚𝐧𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐞, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐞𝐱𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐬

So, Marie found her next objective on Horai Mountain, while at that time. . . . . .

What happened to those who broke off their engagement with Marie and even exiled her?

Firstly, Marie’s fiancé Rugnis. He is the crown prince of the Gēta・Nyīga Kingdom and was originally engaged to Marie.

He chose Marie’s sister, Griselda, as his new fiancée instead.

As for Griselda, she was laughing heartily after having her sister exiled.

She hated her sister.

Because she considered her a failure.

In this world where magic has declined, the only divine miracle is 【Law Magic】.

Law Magic is a holy power that can be used to construct barriers.

With magic gone, maintaining these barriers through Law Magic is the only means of defense for the city.

Hence, those proficient in Law Magic are highly valued.

Griselda, Marie’s sister, was far more talented in Law Magic than other girls her age.

This made her arrogant.

That’s why she resented her sister.

Despite being more proficient in Law Magic, the fact that her sister was chosen as the crown prince’s fiancée just because she was older irked her.

Even when there was a clear difference in ability, being evaluated less because of her age irritated her.

. . . . . .So, she fed lies to Rugnis.

As a result, her sister was gone. Hooray.

Certainly, a wonderful life must be waiting for me from now on. . . . . .

In this belief, Griselda was truly a fool. . . . . .

“Ugh. . . . . . I’m so tired. . . . . . sleepy. . . . . . I feel like dying. . . . . .”

Griselda was in the grand cathedral located in the Capital City.

She was desperately maintaining a barrier there using Law Magic.

“I haven’t slept. . . . . . for three days. . . . . . it’s tough. . . . . . I want to die. . . . . . what is this. . . . . .”

Dark circles were forming under her eyes.

She was clearly sleep-deprived.

There was a reason why she continued to exert her power without sleep.

Recently, the activities of magical creatures have been escalating.

For some unknown reason, a large number of magical creatures began to appear near human settlements.

But that has always happened now and then.

. . . . . .The problem was that maintaining the barrier began to require more effort.

“This is strange. . . . . . I’m a genius. I could easily maintain the barrier even in my sleep. . . . . . Ever since Marie left, I can’t. . . . . . oh god. . . . . . I have to put in effort. . . . . . it disappears instantly. . . . . .”

Griselda didn’t realize.

Her abilities were bolstered by Marie.

Marie was unconsciously using enhancement and supporting magic.

Or rather, the excess magic that she used on herself also enhanced Griselda.

In other words, she could easily maintain the barrier thanks to Marie.

After expelling her sister, the enhancing magic wore off, leading to her weakening.

“This is. . . . . . definitely it. That stupid sister of mine must have cursed me!”

And so, Griselda recently had Rugnis summon a curse specialist.

She firmly believed that her weakening was due to a curse set by her sister through some magical tool.

After staying up all night and enduring hardship, Griselda has an audience with Rugnis.

“Are you alright. . . . . . Griselda?”

“Ah, yes. . . . . . I’m perfectly fine, Your Highness. What about the sorcerer. . . . . .?”

“Ah, they’ve already been summoned to the guest room. Shall we go?”

“Yes.”

Griselda was smiling.

It was by no means a fake smile.

Griselda was fond of Prince Rugnis.

Even the reason for ousting her sister was largely because she wanted Rugnis.

Such a waste of talent on a worthless sister.

“You seem tired lately, are you alright, Griselda?”

Rugnis said with concern.

I’ve found a kind and wonderful boyfriend.

I would never give him to my sister. . . . . .

“Yes, there is no issue.”

“However, my subordinates tell me you haven’t slept.”

“That’s. . . . . . because of my sister!”

She decided to blame all her weaknesses on her sister.

She couldn’t bear to admit that her own lack of skill meant she couldn’t maintain the barrier if she slept.

“Damn that woman, cursing someone important to me! She must be caught and executed!”

“Ah. . . . . . ♡ Your Highness. . . . . . ♡”

. . . . . . And so Griselda was over the moon, but only until this moment.

The sorcerer that Rugnis summoned examined Griselda’s body and said.

“There’s no curse on you whatsoever.”

“”Wha. . . . . .?””

“The weakness is simply due to your lack of skill, isn’t it?”

“”Whaa. . . . . .?!””

“I can see traces of enhancement spells. Likely your sister has been strengthening you.”

“”Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!””
