Yes, the Troubled Saintess (Temporary) Who Was Summoned Is Me ~I Was Expelled for Not Having Magical Power, but I Will Team Up With a Handsome Summoner To Save the World!~ – Chapter 48

Chapter 48: The Right to Worry Together

“Perhaps, the golden cloud is returning magic to the earth in that way.”

Everyone’s faces turned to me with a “Huh?” expression.

“In the world I came from, there was no magic or magical power, but magic is gushing out from the earth all over this country. That collective cloud of magic is created by humans, using a tornado of magic to gather it. Maybe now it wants to return to its original state.”

“If Haru’s assumption is correct, it would be quite troublesome. If it heads towards a major city, we need to pinpoint the location and evacuate the people.”

The prince’s opinion was calm and reasonable, making me feel embarrassed for my vague thoughts.

Pauline-san started working to identify the next affected area day by day. Until the magic fell into the reforestation area, she would return to Cyril-san’s house at night, but now she was with the military all day. Victor and I were the same.

“Victor, Haru, please join us in our efforts. We need as many people as possible who understand that thing. I know it’s selfish of me to ask. Please.”

The prince was desperate. Victor and I were already planning to cooperate.

The palace was informed of the situation, and the number of soldiers increased. About a thousand people were sent to guide the residents’ evacuation. When they arrived at the scene, they were amazed by the slowly moving golden cloud, rotating in the sky. They were told that they didn’t know when a vast amount of magic would fall, and they couldn’t hide their nervousness. 

Victor, Cyril-san, and I were having a whispered conversation away from the soldiers.

“Now that the tornado is gone, I don’t think the golden cloud will grow any larger.”

“Since it’s unnatural for magic to gather in the sky like that, I think it will eventually disappear.”

“But if it disappears while creating such a large hole, the damage will be too great. I’m also worried that Pauline might collapse from overwork.”

Lately, Cyril-san doesn’t hide his affection for Pauline-san. It’s refreshing.

“Hey, Victor. You saw where the magic fell from the cloud, right? The light fell from the edge of the cloud.”

“Yeah, but what about it?”

“If we know where the magic falls from the cloud, I think I can catch it and return it to the earth. If I can catch it, there won’t be such damage.”

“Huh? What are you talking about? It’s different from being hit by two or three Ice Lances. If you try to catch that much magic power that can create such a large hole, you’ll definitely die!”

“That’s right, Haru. Pauline is making detailed predictions. If buildings are sacrificed, we just need to evacuate people. There’s no need for you to sacrifice yourself.”

“Yeah… you’re right.”

Then why was I summoned?

Pauline-san foresaw that someone was needed to prevent a great disaster.

Victor summoned me, choosing me with his summoning magic.

If I don’t have to do anything, why am I here now? Within me, one answer lingers. That answer has been poking at me incessantly. 

(No matter how hard anyone tries, my role will surely come. I can’t escape from it, and maybe I shouldn’t.)

When I first came to this country, I didn’t understand, but after living with Victor and Pauline-san for a long time, I have come to understand many things.

Pauline-san, who has the skills to work at the palace, and Victor, who was called a genius, are probably not mistaken. If they called me, then I must do my best. That will surely not let me escape.

The power of the magical attacks directed at me is being returned to the earth. I remember that night when my feet glowed when Victor’s Ice Lances disappeared. I must be a lightning rod. I think I’m a lightning rod that returns the magic power forcibly gathered by humans back to the earth.

“Hey, Victor.”

“What?”

“Didn’t the prince say something about gathering the tornadoes of the palace wizards and making them bigger?”

“He did.”

“In that case, you know what that means, right? No matter where the magic falls from that large cloud, can’t we use a magic circle to drop it in a specific location?”

Victor fell into silent contemplation for a while. I waited, but he didn’t say anything.

“Victor. You have a way, don’t you? A way to drop the magic in a targeted location no matter where it falls from the cloud. I want you to be prepared as a last resort.”

“You intend to stand in the targeted location?”

“When it becomes necessary.”

“With my, with my magic circle. . .”

Saying that, Victor left with heavy footsteps.

“Haru, about you.”

“Huh? Did I do something wrong?”

“No, you didn’t. But maybe you should talk more with Victor and discuss things together.”

“Um, what do you mean?”

“It seems like Haru is deciding everything without consulting Victor. Since it’s something you’re willing to risk your life for, no one has the right to complain. But it feels like you’re saying, ‘I’ll decide for myself, so it’s none of your business,’ and it’s a bit lonely.”

“Eh? No, that’s not what I meant. I thought that if I hesitated and worried about what I should do, it would be troublesome for everyone.”

“It’s the right of close people to worry together. Victor probably felt pushed away by you, I’m sure.”

“The right of close people…”

Ah, I see. Is that how it was?

My younger brothers were angry because they felt like they were being given charity. Maybe it’s because I didn’t even let them worry together. 

Even now, and in the past, I didn’t consult anyone about anything. It was always, “It’s about me,” and “You don’t need to consult or complain to me.”

“Cyril-san, thank you. I’m going to talk to Victor.”

“Sure. Go ahead.”
