Marie was in the sky looking down.

Seeing Martha quietly exit beyond the outer wall, Marie murmurs as if impressed.

“Not bad, that black cat. You’re not just any cat, are you?”

Well, Ose is not a cat but a demon. . . . . .

“Well then, I should focus on my own work.”

In the Capital City, a giant covered in mud stands.

It seems the same magic, Transformation, that was used by Louri, the Guardian of the Forbidden Library, is at play here.

“Grand Dispel.”

Marie employs the magic she learned on Horai Mountain.

It’s a spell that lifts all curses, but. . . . . .

With a whooshing sound, the magic was undone.

“Hmm. . . . . . not bad at all.”

『Oh, oh, ohhhhhhhh!!!』

A horrendous shriek from the monster.

Looking in the direction of the sound, the mud giant swings its arm at Marie.

Marie tries to defend herself with barrier magic.

Crack!

The barrier shatters into pieces. Just as it’s about to strike Marie, she expertly dodges the blow by maneuvering her broomstick.

“I see. . . . . . so that’s how it works.”

『Hey, hey, hey, what are you doing?!』

At that moment, Martha’s noisy voice is heard. Looking around, a butterfly has landed on Marie’s witch hat.

It was Martha’s familiar. From there, Martha seems to be sharing sensory information and transmitting her voice.

『Why are you struggling with that thing?』

“Weren’t you the one who created it?”

『I set the stage, yes. But that power isn’t from a spell I cast.』

A spell matrix. Like a blueprint for magic. Channel magical power here, and the spell activates.

Yes, it’s magic.

“I get it. That spell matrix is something Griselda was born with, right?”

『Is, is that so?』

“Hmm. . . . . .”

Lacking magical knowledge, Marie felt odd that this woman is categorized as a witch, like herself.

“Griselda probably had the talent to be a magician. That’s a powerful spell matrix. I’d call it 【Magic Transmutation】 if I were to name it.”

『Magic Transmutation. . . . . .? What kind of magic is that?』

“It’s a magic that not only dispels the enemy’s magic but also converts it into your own magical power.”

『What?! That’s not only dispelling enemy magic but also absorbing their magical power. . . . . . a spell with two effects in one!』

Martha is so shocked because that magic is highly advanced.

That’s why Marie says with certainty,

“I’ve figured it out. Griselda had a high aptitude for magic in this world. But her magical power was weak.”

Law Magic. The power to use healing spells.

Marie had weak magical power. But had an immense talent for magic.

“It seems that magical power and healing power are somewhat contradictory.”

Having a high aptitude for mana doesn’t necessarily mean you can handle magic well.

Conversely, if one lacks mana aptitude, they can be said to have a high aptitude for magic.

『So does that mean Griselda could have become an amazing magician if circumstances were different?』

“That would be the case. However, if that talent is exploited foolishly, leading to an uncontrolled situation, then it’s meaningless.”

Marie slightly twisted her face, just a little bit.

If Kaito or Ose were nearby, they would have pointed out that her eyes looked as if she were witnessing something painful.

But Martha didn’t notice.

Marie’s reason for fighting this unpalatable opponent was not apparent.

『So what do we do now? That monster is Griselda, who went berserk due to my magic. Even if I cast a dispelling spell on that monster, it will get negated due to Griselda’s magic aptitude.』

Griselda explains the current situation.

『Giving up already? Then that means I win.』

“Hmph, don’t be ridiculous. As if I would lose to a small fry like you.”

Marie picks up her wand and gazes at Griselda, who has turned into a mud monster.

“Come at me, Griselda. Shall we have our first and last sisterly squabble?”
