Chapter 29: Nell, Reminiscing (2)│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“Nell-chan, I’m sorry… I’m not good enough.”
Ninya immediately bowed to her when they were alone.
“I don’t mind. This is also my job.”
Nell responds matter-of-factly.
In fact, she had not anticipated such a bothersome request. Furthermore, if she failed, Ninya would only be expelled, and she would be unaffected.
Immediately, Nell uses appraisal on Ninya.
Skill: Buff Level 3
(As expected, she has no talent.)
But there is one thing that concerns her.
“Because you lack talent, no matter what you do, you will never learn a new skill.”
(I’m going to be honest with her first. )
” I see…”
Ninya lowers her head.
(However, it is still too early to give up.)
“Ninya, tell me about your [buff] skill.”
“Well, it’s a unique skill that I was born with. It can raise another person’s status, but the boost is so minor that it is ineffective. I was told that I should learn other skills in order to fight.”
True, raising one’s status is a useful skill, but if one cannot fight, he or she is nothing more than a liability.
However, because she can’t seem to learn any other skills, they must deal with [buff].
(It appears her [buff] skill has a level concept.)
Nell had never seen a skill with the concept of levels before.
“Ninya, we’ll take the route of increasing your [buff]. Apparently, the more you use your [buff], the stronger it appears to become.”
“R-Really? I understand…”
Ninya nodded in confusion.
Then she let Ninya use the [buff] skill as long as her magic power allowed it.
“It hasn’t been very effective.”
Nell says, after a week of appraising Ninya.
Akill: Buff Level 4
It only advanced one level.
(We only have about three weeks left, and at this rate, we’ll be out of time.)
“I’ve been using my [buff] as much as my magic powers allow me to…”
Ninya’s words were most likely true.
But if they continue in the same manner, Ninya will be expelled.
“We’ll take aggressive measures.”
Nell makes a decision.
“I’ll have it ready by tomorrow; see you then.”
And the next day.
“Ninya is going to drink this.”
She showed her a liquid in a small bottle.
“What is this?”
“It’s a magic-restoring potion.”
It’s something you drink when your magical power is low.
“When my magical power runs out, I take this medicine to increase the number of times I use my skill, right?”
“No, it isn’t.”
“You must drink it even if you have sufficient magical power. The body will then have an excess of magic, and it will try to consume it by using the magic itself. If you keep doing this, your [buff] skill will naturally improve.”
As she spoke, Nell brought a box of them.
“If you drink this many bottles, your [buff] should be strong enough to keep you from being expelled.”
The box in Nell’s hand held over 100 bottles of magic-restoring potion.”
Ninya says as she reaches for a bottle.
“Wait a second.”
Nell stops her.
“Excessive use of magic drugs is likely to result in side effects. Do you still want to go through with it?”
“Y-Yes, I will!”
Ninya gave a nod.
Ninya had experienced something by the time she had finished her fifth bottle.
She was clutching her head in pain.
“Do you want to quit?”
“N-No, I’ll do it…”
Nina drinks the magic-restoring potion one after the other as she says this.
As she does so, she nearly vomits, but manages to suppress the nausea as she drinks.
(Why is she putting in so much effort?)
Nell was perplexed.
Ninya’s status bar displayed the word [responsibility].
(What is the purpose of this ‘responsibility’?)
“Hey, why are you trying so hard?”
When a week had passed since Ninya had started taking the magic-restoring potions, Nell had suddenly asked.
“Because if I don’t put in the effort, the other kids will…”
Ninya continued to drink the magic-restoring potion.
She later discovered that Ninya wanted to improve the treatment of the orphan children.
She was told that in order to do so, she needed to strengthen herself and contribute to the clan.
Nell had been trying not to get involved with other children, so she had never heard of such a story.
(You look like a fool.)
Nell honestly believed this after hearing Ninya’s story.
(It’s ridiculous to be concerned about others when you can’t even take care of yourself.)
“Hey, Nell. I have a favor to ask you…”
Two weeks after the start of special training
Ninya, crouching sickly, said this after the day’s special training session.
“Would you mind stealing some snacks from the kitchen for me?”
Nell was surprised because Ninya didn’t look like the kind of person who would misbehave like that.
“I occasionally steal snacks and give them to other children. So, every now and then, I get caught and beaten up. I haven’t been able to do it in a long time because I’ve been sick, so… could you do it for me?”
Nell gave a nod.
She thought to herself, (What a stupid thing to do, stealing snacks for other kids.)
However, Nell’s scouting skills make it simple for her to steal, so she has no qualms about doing so.
When she returned, the children came running to Ninya.
“Today, we brought snacks for everyone.”
Really? Thank you very much, Ninya-oneechan!”
“Well, I didn’t bring them today, but Nell did.”
“Here you go.”
At these words, Nell hands over a box of cookies.
“”””””Thank you very much, Nell-oneechan!””””””
When the children thanked her, they were already absorbed in the box of cookies.
“You must share the cookies with everyone, okay?”
Ninya said, then retreated into the background.
She seemed to be maintaining her composure, but Nell could tell.
Skill: Buff Level 25
The word [responsibility] had been replaced by [headache].
She must be enduring a lot of pain.
However, at this rate, she should be able to make some headway before Garga’s deadline.
She must persevere until then.
(Ninya will make it through.)
That’s what Nell believes.
