Victor was about to step into the water beneath the waterfall when he was thrown back by some force.
…What just happened Is it a fairy force
“What the heck was that”
He tried once more to step into the water with a mighty splash, but was bounced back again.
“Hey, kid, do something.”
How would I know how to deal with fairies I didn’t even know they existed until today, you know
I thought this country’s only fantasy element was magic.
Asking me to do something with magic would be like going to an Italian restaurant and asking for sushi.
Anyway, I tried to enter the water while Victor stared at me.
First, I need to figure out why he was repelled.
Hmmm, what I was able to enter the field.
I quickly turned to Victor.
His eyes widened as he stared at me in surprise.
“I don’t know!”
Both he and I were so surprised that it took us a little while to figure out what was going on.
Does this mean Victor was rejected, and I was accepted Could it be that this waterfall was for women only
Victor looked at me as if he was about to kill me while I was thinking about this.
“I’m sure you have some serious magic power, don’t you”
“Stop playing dumb with me.
You’ve got more magical power than this fairy, that’s why you were able to get in there so easily.”
“How can you be so certain”
“It’s in the lore of the land… no, it’s nothing.”
Why stop there That was the most aggravating way to come to a stop.
You shouldn’t have said anything in the first place if you were going to hide something.
“Please complete the point.”
“You’re forgetting that I’m the prince, right”
“You should not act in this manner as a prince.”
“I can’t tell you classified information about my country.”
“…You mean it’s more important than this rotten lake”
I was surprised that he almost revealed such secret information to me just now; he should be more careful.
I wondered what lore was more important than the location of a special lake, which was a requirement for becoming the king.
Oh, I was already curious about it!
I’m sure he won’t talk even if I pester him now.
I guess I will have to find out on my own.
“So, since you can get in there, you should be able to get the fairy, right”
“If I get the fairy, will I become the king of this country”
Victor shuts his mouth at my question.
He wasn’t a fool; he knew what I was doing on his behalf.
“I said you can take advantage of me, but you’ll have to deal with this on your own.”
“You know I can’t go over there.
What do you want me to do”
He sounded a little exasperated.
A tantrum was a bad thing.
Why was he in such a rush when the goal was already in front of him
“That’s why I’m helping you.”
“…What do you mean”
“People love flowers.”
“What are you talking about”
“No one loves the stems and roots that support the flowers.
I mean, nobody will be interested in the process of getting a fairy.”
“What’s your point”
“I’m saying that the prince will get all the credit for our success.”
I said this as I took off the cloth that had been covering my eyes.
I stared firmly at Victor with my right eye.
I made a small gesture with my hands, allowing the magic to flow out of my body for the first time in a long time.
I could see my own eyes gradually light up with the sensation.
This fairy possesses a considerable amount of magical power, doesn’t it
I gradually feel what feels like an invisible wall cracking.
That dazzling light that I felt when I first arrived here radiated out from there.
I poured all of my energy into my body.
At that moment, the entire place was enveloped in a dazzling light.
Both Victor and I firmly shut our eyes.
