Transmutation Master Aria Is Doing Her Best Today ~a Happy Second Life for a Transmutation Master Who Had Her Results Stolen by Her Sister~ – Chapter 41
Chapter 41: The boy and the Princess
“Starting from today, I’ll work hard!”
“…I feel like I heard that line yesterday too.”
“But I’m using different words today, so it’s a different thing!”
Fusaki-kun became my assistant from yesterday.
He was one year older than Irina-chan and he was originally her escort.
For various circumstances, he became my assistant and also my escort…
“Let’s continue from where we left off yesterday.”
“Understood! I’ll prepare the materials then!”
Transmutation Art is profound.
It is not a job that an amateur can easily handle.
Even as an assistant, you need to have some knowledge to keep up with the conversation.
Yuren-kun learned it on his own, and Irina-chan learned from Yuren-kun.
They both had basic knowledge, so they could keep up with my work and conversation.
On the other hand, Fusaki-kun…
“Well, Transmutation Art is even more difficult than I thought~.”
“Is that so? I have been studying it since I was a child, you know.”
“I heard it from His Highness! My skills can’t compare because I’m just a quick learner overnight~,” he said boastfully.
“…It’s not normal for someone to be able to learn so much overnight.”
I muttered under my breath, sighing at his talent.
On the day Fusaki-kun became my assistant, he apparently had all the basic knowledge of Transmutation Art hammered into him.
I doubted it was true at first, but now I have no choice but to believe it.
“This is the material we’ll use for the next transmutation, right? If you’re also using this, I’ll prepare it for you.”
“Thank you. Can you line them up in order?”
He anticipated what I wanted to do and prepared the necessary materials in advance.
Whenever I was thinking about missing elements from my transmutation failure, he would arrive at the correct solution before me.
He was so excellent that it made me slightly envious.
Or rather, people like him should be called true geniuses.
Yuren-kun and Irina-chan are also like that, but I feel like there are many people in this country who possess an extraordinarily shining talent.
Unfortunately, he was not qualified to control the Transmutation Circle.
“It’s not fair, is it?”
“Well, it can’t be helped~ If everyone could do everything, the world would become full of frightening things.”
“W-Well, that might be true.”
I thought I said it in a low voice that couldn’t be heard, but did he just hear me?
Fusaki-kun seems to have good ears.
“Oh, it’s about time for her to come running.”
Right after his words, the door to the workshop opened with a clatter.
“See, she’s here.”
Irina-chan came to the workshop.
She was out of breath from running.
“Fusa-kun, hello! You’re helping with the work properly!”
“Well, this is my job, you know.”
While talking to Fusaki-kun, Irina-chan seemed very happy.
The two have known each other since he was her escort and they are the best of friends.
What is surprising is that the one who arranged the relationship between the two was Duke Gardenn-sama.
Due to her illness, Irina-chan could hardly leave her room.
To help her, he recommended a boy of the same age as her as an escort.
Fusaki-kun’s personality worked in a positive direction, and Irina-chan began to show a smile while fighting her illness.
“Onee-sama! How far have we progressed now? I will help too.”
“Thank you. But is it okay? Haven’t you just finished your job as a princess?”
“I’m totally fine! It’s just a jobI couldn’t do until now.”
Those born into the royal family receive education to acquire the behavior and abilities appropriate to their position.
It is said to start from when they are still young, but in her case, she had an illness.
She couldn’t be forced to do anything that would overexert her weak body.
However, it seems that events that had been cancelled due to her illness were resumed when she recovered and became healthy once more.
From about six months ago until today, it has been a period of preparation to recover from illness, and recently it has become busy in earnest.
“I actually want to help more, but…it seems like it’s going to get busier again.”
“I am already grateful enough. Thanks to Irina-chan, my research has progressed quite a bit.”
“Really? I’m happy to hear that.”
Actually, Irina has been a great support for me.
She taught me that it’s more enjoyable to work with someone than to work alone in solitude.
She says it’s a way to repay a debt, but I have already received enough from her.
“Well, don’t worry! From now on, I’ll help too, and I’ll support you firmly, even for Princess’s share.”
“Yeah! Fusa-kun, I know I can rely on you!”
“Hahaha~ I blush when you say it so clearly.”
Their exchange is soothing to listen to.
I wish I could watch it a little longer.
