The Villainess Princess Will Dive into the Labyrinth Again Today – Chapter 48


Chapter 48: The villainess princess feels a synergy

“…Hmm… Just a little more. I think I just need a little more… I was already at the point where only the foundation (skeleton) was left.”

Of course, Golem returned to his muscular form when Miliaria stopped, but it seemed like pushing too hard wouldn’t work.

“I think it will work out eventually…”

She didn’t think she could achieve her goal with just a little more effort.

She had hoped her technique would be enough, but she was frustrated that she couldn’t even get a spark after trying the initial technique.

For now, the power-up she thought of was to pile on gems…

Miliaria, who placed gems on her fingers, put on as many bracelets and necklaces as she could and looked at herself in the mirror, was horrified by how unappealing she looked.

She held her head in her shaking hands and looked away from the reflection.

“This is… it’s ugly. Losing all the time is also ugly… Well, I’ll try to practice moving gracefully with these on for a while. Anyway…”

Maybe this clumsiness will be surpassed by the elegance that will come with it.

But, since it seems a bit hopeless, she should also consider alternatives.

Even if she has strange memories in her head, there may be times when she actually needs to combine techniques.

In such cases, the royal castle library is the best resource.

The books there are both abundant and of the highest quality, making it the ideal place for research.

Miliaria uses it to some extent, but when she went to the library with great excitement, she found a visitor there today.

A cute boy with glasses was deeply engrossed in a large book.

She thought about leaving him alone, but when she realized that the book Glasses-kun was reading was about spirit art, she approached him.

“Is that a book about spirit art?”

“…Yes, it is. What about it?”

“I’m also researching spirit art.”

“You’re researching spirit art?”

Glasses-kun gave her an impolite look and snorted.

“I can’t see you taking it seriously, with all those accessories and your bad taste.”

What an presumptuous little creature.

Glasses-kun, who had upset her mood, was impudent and cute at the same time.

But it was awkward to bring up the unpleasant parts directly.

As Miliaria, the thought of wearing these gems for no reason was heart-wrenching.

So she hid her mouth with her fan and feigned a laugh.

“What? You’re a user of spiritual arts, aren’t you? Don’t you know the significance of these gems? Are you serious?You’re not joking, are you?”

Miliaria was amazed at her own villainous potential to make such a foolish statement.

And it seemed to have worked, as Glasses-kun, who was deeply irritated, looked up.

“That’s…What do you mean…?”

“What? Why should I tell you?”

“…Why not?”

“Because it’s valuable information. If I’m going to teach you, you’re going to have to trade for something of equal value. For example, gold coins.”

“…Fine. It’s not a big deal anyway.”

Glasses-kun returned his gaze to the book with a sigh, but Milliaria snatches up the book he’s reading and offers him an alternative: a fan.

“Well, it doesn’t have to be gold coins, something else will do. For example, information. If you have information I want to know, I’d be happy if you shared it with me.”

The effect of the gems’ buff could not be underestimated.

It seemed that people in the world didn’t know much about it, so she could reveal this much.

Glasses-kun was puzzled by Miliaria’s confidence, but he sighed lightly, defeated by his curiosity.

“… If it’s something I know…”

“It wouldn’t be interesting if you didn’t know! Actually, I’m looking for a way to increase the power of spiritual arts! If you have any tricks, could you teach me?”

“Unfortunately, there’s no such convenient solution… Spiritual arts can only be strengthened through hard work.”

“Yes, that’s right! But if you keep casting the same spell, won’t the power stay the same? I’ve tried various research, but I feel like there are many spiritual theories and they are unclear.”

Miliaria sighed as she looked at the stacks of books, feeling overwhelmed.

It seemed that the mainstream approach was to find ways to make spiritual arts easier and more stable to use, rather than delving into the essence of spiritual arts.

There was no doubt that defeating enemies would increase your level and power.

But somehow, Miliaria felt that power was being substituted for training.

If there is training, there will be improvement.

If you have trained and defeated monsters, it may be human nature to find purpose in difficulty.

As Miliaria answered, being careful not to reveal too much information, Glasses-kun had already taken his eyes off the book and was looking at her.

“So, I have a little puzzle for you. Can you tell me a way to defeat a monster that is only vulnerable to attribute attacks in a short amount of time?”

“A puzzle, huh?”

“Something like that. Do you know anything?”

Miliaria didn’t have high expectations for an answer, but Glasses-kun, who was muttering to himself, surprisingly responded with a proper answer.

“Attribute attacks… I see… I might know something.”

“Really?!”

Miliaria was pleasantly surprised by Glasses-kun’s willingness to share, and she grabbed his shoulder in excitement. Glasses-kun blinked his eyes and nodded several times.

“Yes, it’s true!… You’re a bit rough.”

“I don’t care about that! So! What is it?”

Miliaria leaned in, eager to listen, and Glasses-kun straightened his wrinkled clothes before speaking.

“…Don’t knights have certain techniques? I heard that by enhancing those techniques with spiritual arts, they can evolve into advanced techniques. These advanced techniques are said to be less draining and more powerful than regular spiritual arts.”

“…What?”

“There are techniques… that have special effects. For example, imbued with fire or water when swinging a sword. Isn’t that impossible without spiritual arts? I guess you could say they put attributes on their attacks.”

“!”

Miliaria realized that Glasses-kun was right. High-level techniques did have flashy effects attached to them!

Of course, Miliaria was familiar with these techniques, but she felt like a veil had been lifted from her eyes.

She had thought of them as separate things, but it was true that in the game “Concerto of the Light Princess,” the techniques used by the characters were linked to the spiritual arts they could use and the effects they had.

Characters with a high aptitude for the spiritual art of fire were likely to learn a technique that created fire when swinging a sword.

In other words, that effect might be considered a manifestation of spiritual arts.

“Maybe if I focus on learning… I might have a breakthrough?”

“I believe a certain level of proficiency is necessary, but it seems that many individuals have learned the skills of spiritual arts through dedicated effort… though it may differ from the requirements.”

“No! I can do it!”

Miliaria declared, clapping Glasses-kun’s shoulder with determination.

It was strange that despite having learned the initial skills, she was unable to learn the next ones, no matter how hard she tried.

She thought it was because she was the final boss, or maybe it was a unique characteristic, but if her own knowledge was hindering her progress, it would be a great disappointment.

As long as the overall damage didn’t exceed the Golem’s HP and recovery speed, it didn’t matter how many moves were used.

“This will… be my downfall!”

“I don’t understand what you mean by ‘downfall.’ Can you explain it to me?”

Glasses-kun asked, sounding both excited and nervous.

His curiosity was what made him a dedicated fan.

Feeling guilty for her previous actions, Miliaria decided to share her secret information.

“By the way, what is your specialty attribute in spiritual arts?”

“…Water.”

“Water? That’s just right…”

Miliaria nodded and handed Glasses-kun a sapphire ring from among her jewelry.

The ring amplified the water attribute and also slightly recovered HP, making it ideal for someone with a water specialty.

“Consider this a reward. My little secret is that if you wear the proper accessories, there are special effects. Gems, in particular, increase the power of spiritual arts. It usually ranges from 15% to 30%, depending on the quality. The better the quality, the more noticeable the change should be!”

This was probably the easiest way to quickly and greatly increase one’s spiritual arts.

Hearing this, Glasses-kun’s eyes widened in surprise as he gazed at the sapphire ring in his hand.

“I’ve never…I’ve never heard of that…”

“Yeah. People don’t seem to know about it.”

Indeed, she had never heard anyone mention this before.

Miliaria poured her spiritual power into her Black Diamond, causing it to shine brightly.

The trick is to imagine it circulating through the gem. You should be able to feel the boost in your power.”

“R-Really?”

Glasses-kun asked skeptically.

“You should try it with that gemstone as well!”

Miliaria encouraged him.

“No! That’s too much…”

“What?”

Miliaria, not hearing Glasses-kun’s words, approached him with a gulp.

Glasses-kun, frightened and red-faced, looked away and muttered,

“Well, that…Th-thank you.”

The once meek young man had suddenly become a cute boy!

Miliaria was taken aback by Glasses-kun’s sudden transformation.

However, she had devised a plan to avoid such surprises in the future.

“Take care of yourself!” she said before slowly disappearing, teleporting away like a ghost.

“Wai…”

Glasses-kun was saying something, but Miliaria was too focused on the new technique she had discovered.

The thought of it taking her to another level filled her with excitement and she couldn’t remain still.
