“Evidence. . .yes, how about this?”

Luke held his hand over the ground.

“Trace manifestation. The target is footprints, within a year.”

As Luke spoke, the footprints left on the ground shone brightly.

“These are the footprints of those who came here within the past year. I know because I’ve been on dungeon subjugation with them, these are the footprints of the four people from  《Blue Sky Hawk》 . And also this.”

As Luke held out his hand, several handprints appeared on the destroyed ancient water gate.

“These are the four handprints. They should match when compared.”

“So, is that so. . .? But. . .why would they do such a thing. . .could it be?!”

Luke nodded at Miranda, who had realized the meaning of her words.

“Their sponsor is Clavi. Doesn’t he have other businesses besides the waterworks?”

“Ah, indeed he does.”

Miranda answered with a bitter face.

“Originally, Clavi specialized in wholesale magic potions. Especially the medicine for black spot fever, Clavi has a monopoly on it.”

Miranda punched the wall.

“That money-grubber! Doesn’t he know what’s right and wrong?!”

She raised her voice in anger and repeatedly pounded her fist.

Luke hurriedly restrained Miranda.

“Please calm down.”

“How can I calm down at a time like this! Black spot fever can be cured with medicine! Yet, as soon as black spot fever spread, he tripled the price! That’s why there are so many patients in city.”

Miranda’s anger showed no signs of abating.

“I understand how you feel. But right now, solving the black spot fever is the priority. We’re the only ones who can do it!”

At Luke’s words, Miranda’s movements stopped.

“. . .That’s right. You’re absolutely right.”

Her face was flushed with anger, but her breathing had returned to calm.

“Indeed, this is not the time to be doing this. Now that we know the cause, we need to think about a solution.”

“This water gate was keeping the black spot fever in check, wasn’t it? Can’t it be fixed?”

“That’s a bit difficult.”

Luke shook his head at Alma’s words.

“The magic pattern of master who made this is too complex for me to fix immediately. Including analysis, it will probably take more than a week. Considering the spread of black spot fever, that’s too much time.”

“I see. . .”

Miranda bit her lip.

“Then why don’t we just hit the source itself? There’s something in the back of this water gate that’s generating magic essence, right? Then we just need to defeat it.”

“Will it go that smoothly. . .”

Luke frowned as he gazed at the water gate.

“The fact that this water gate was made means that even master couldn’t defeat it. No, rather than not being able to defeat it. . .”

“What are you doing there!”

Suddenly, a shout echoed from behind.

“Why are you guys here! This is a sanctuary!”

“Lord Clavi. . .”

Miranda, who turned around at that voice, glared back.

She didn’t even try to hide her hatred anymore.

The one who came was Clavi.

He was accompanied by dozens of armed soldiers.

Clavi looked around arrogantly and then turned back to Miranda.

“I heard that a suspicious group had come to the water purification plant, so I came to check. . . Miranda, what is the captain of the security team doing in a place like this?”

He acted as if Luke and Alma were not even there.

“We came to investigate the cause of the black spot fever. We have found that the magic substance mixed in Mercapolis’ drinking water is the cause of the black spot fever.”

Miranda pointed at Clavi.

“The spread of this black spot fever is your responsibility, Clavi, the director of the waterworks!”

“Well, what are you talking about?”

Clavi shrugged as if to play dumb.

“It’s a disgrace for the captain of the security team to deceive us with such nonsense after breaking in without permission.”

“Are you pretending to be ignorant! This must be your doing!”

Miranda, trembling with anger, pointed to the ancient water gate that was being destroyed behind her.

“The  《Blue Sky Hawk》  you command destroyed the ancient water gate, causing magic substances to mix into the drinking water, which caused the black spot fever. And there’s no doubt that you, who monopolize the special medicine for black spot fever, are behind it! You’re trying to turn the lives of the people into money!”

“That’s a serious accusation.”

A voice came from behind Clavi.

“We destroyed this water gate? Where is the evidence for that?”

The one who came forward was Runker.

The three members of the  《Blue Sky Hawk》  were also standing behind him.

“Even if you’re the captain of the security team, it’s not admirable to treat people as criminals without evidence. . . wait, why are you here!”

Runker, who had been grinning, stopped in his tracks when he recognized Luke.

“Long time no see.”

Luke bowed his head slightly.

“Since you’re here, it’s a good opportunity. Can you explain why you destroyed this water gate?”

“What are you talking about? I’ve never seen a place like this, let alone entered it. . .”

“Don’t play dumb.”

Luke’s voice was filled with quiet anger.

Runker was silenced by its force.

“We know that you came here and destroyed this water gate. We’re asking why you did such a thing.”

Luke raised his left hand.

“Eek!”

Runker instinctively shielded his face with his arm.

“Trace manifestation. The target is Runker’s footprints and handprints, the period is one year, and visual confirmation is possible.”

Along with Luke’s magic, Runker’s palms and boots emitted a faint light.
