The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 17

Chapter 17: Where calamity sleeps

My vision went pure white.

The runes on the tablet were a formula in itself.

The condition for activation apparently was to decipher all the letters and read them to the end.

That was the condition for activation, apparently.

“Where is this…?”

It’s a completely white world.

It’s like I’m floating in a space with nothing else but myself.

Or am I standing?

I can’t see it, but there is a ground beneath me.

No, that’s not all.

If I focus my eyes in this dream-like world, I can see something.

“Is this…a memory?”

Someone’s memory.

It’s probably the memory of the spellcaster who carved the runic characters on the stone tablet.

An unfamiliar scenery unfolds before me.

Could it be the world of four thousand years ago, from the ancient times?

There is a city.

It’s completely different from the current streets, with single-story houses made of hardened clay lined up.

The color of the ground and the walls of the houses are almost the same.

It’s a scenery unique to an era when construction technology wasn’t as advanced as it is now.

As someone living in the modern age, it was refreshing to see.

But more than anything…

“It’s peaceful.”

Even though people were not as prosperous as they are now, they were living freely.

They looked happy.

The owner of the memory is also leading a happy life with his wife and children.

However, one day a tragedy suddenly occurred.

The sky was covered in pitch black darkness.

The sun was hidden, the moon was gone, and only darkness enveloped the world.

This was the birth of the Demon God.

Just after its birth, it plunged people into the depths of terror.

The sun disappeared into the darkness, and demon beasts were running rampant.

People were forced to fight against the demon beasts, and the war spread.

There was a lot of bloodshed.

Most of the bloodshed was unnecessary.

Even the families of the magicians were killed by the demon beasts.

“This is terrible…”

The magician trembled with anger.

He held anger towards the demon beasts and hatred towards the Demon God.

He was an excellent Rune Magician and chose to fight against the Demon God on the front lines.

He pressed forward, facing only forward, while many of his comrades fell.

However, the power of the Demon God was too strong and there was no chance of winning.

The more they fight, the less strength humanity has.

Then they came up with an idea.

It’s not about winning, it’s about finding a way to end the fight.

The Rune Magicians joined forces to create a spell to seal the Demon God.

Of course, sealing the Demon God was not an easy task.

Even in the final battle, there was bloodshed.

However, the people showed their determination and successfully sealed the Demon God.

They had achieved victory.

However, the Rune Magicians were aware that this seal was not eternal.

They knew that in the distant future, the world would be threatened by the terror of the Demon God once again.

That’s why they left it behind.

Not as a great achievement, but as a legacy for future generations.


“――na! Meiana!”

My consciousness is awakened by a loud voice calling my name.

When I opened my eyes, I saw the worried face of His Highness looking down at me.

He was supporting my shoulders and head, with his arm around my back.

“Your Highness…?”

“Thank God. You’re awake.”

“Um, I…”

“You fainted right after finishing reading the rune inscription.”

While I was reading the inscription on the stone tablet, it seems that I had fainted.

His Highness caught me as I fell from the ladder, and seemed to have been calling out to me multiple times until I woke up.

“I’m sorry, Your Highness. I caused you to worry.”

“Are you okay?”

“Yes. There are no abnormalities in my body. The runes inscribed on the slab just activated.”

“The runes… What happened?”

His Highness asked me with a worried expression.

I slowly got up and once again faced the prince.

“I now know the location where the Demon God is sealed.”

His Highness’s eyes widened.

There are many things to talk about, but for now, I’ll tell him what he wants to know the most.

I saw it.

The memories of the spell caster, the truth from four thousand years ago.

“…Where is it?”

“…In the royal capital.”


“There is a ruin in the basement of the royal castle where the Demon God is sealed.”


The carriage rattles and jostles along.

The shaking has subsided since we departed.

It’s proof that we’re traveling on a well-maintained road.

“We’ve come back.”

I look out the window.

After completing the investigation on the stone tablet, I returned to the royal capital.

It’s the first time I’ve seen the view of the capital in a while.

Only a few weeks have passed since the incident, but it felt long since I didn’t have a chance to leave the capital.

The capital feels nostalgic.

“We’re going to report to my father. Are you ready?


I’m nervous, but it’s also my duty.

I have to report the decoded content to His Majesty the King.

I return to the royal palace with His Highness and head to the Throne Room.

The knights have already informed His Majesty about the discussion we’re about to have.

He’s waiting for us.

“Are you nervous?”


His Highness asks me in the hallway.

Of course I am.

It’s a rare opportunity for even nobles to talk to His Majesty.

This is a first for me.

But strangely, I don’t feel scared.

I wonder why?

“Your just reporting what you’ve learned. I’ll be here too.”


Is it because I know His Highness is with me?

Before I knew it, we had arrived.

In the throne room.

Behind the grand doors waits the king of this country.
