Chapter 26: Gift Magic 2

Gift Magic 2

“It sure raining cats and dogs, huh”

The raindrop hit the roof. The weather has become like this recently, for plants in would be like the blessing from heaven but to me, it is an unfortunate event. I can’t run, I can’t see sempai’s face, I can’t hear sempai’s voice, I can’t breathe in the air of tranquility sempai emit and above all I can’t see her bewitching soaked figure when we sit together under the waterfall.

“Kousuke.”

Someone called my name so I turn around to look. It was Hatsumi-neesan who is looking at me while holding a wand. Walking behind her is the tired-looking Ludi. Perhaps they just finished with their Chant Shortening lesson. From what I heard, Hatsumi-neesan is very strict and didn’t show any compromise for Ludi at all.

But since Ludi also has a hostile organization to worry about she has the proper motivation. However, since she has to train until her magic depleted, she has a hard time just to keep walking. She seemed to be asking Nee-san to go easy on her a little bit.

I know that her training is harsh but I want to support Nee-san’s training method. As a result of my experiment, I found that the more you use magic, the easier it is for you to use them.

“Did you completed your preparation, Kousuke?”

I tilted my head as I wondered what she was talking about.

“The school will start the day after tomorrow, right?”

Ah, I nodded.

Certainly, the entrance ceremony will be on the day after tomorrow. Of course, I have already done a proper preparation.

“I’m fine, there’s not much to worry about in the first place.”

When I answered, Nee-san’s eyebrows raised a few millimeters, and I feel like the corner of her mouth is shaking. Is that perhaps a smile? She then made an okay hand sign with her right hand.

-for your imagination

“Un, be sure not to forget anything.”

Nee-san walks straight to the stairs. I called out to Ludi who is sitting on the sofa like her soul already left her body.

“Are you still alive?”

“………..It’s no good. Before I die, I want to eat ra……….no, ice cream would be better.”

She said it while stretching out her hand like she was trying to grasps something.

Please come back already, your Highness Ludivine.

“Can’t be helped then.”

I open the freezer and look for ice cream. Somehow, this house always has a lot of high-quality cup ice cream like it was only natural. I take two of her favorite Choco Strawberry out from the freezer and take it to her.

“Thank you…….”

I hand over one to her and open the lid of the one I am carrying…..Recently, it seems like I stopped being modest around her and treat her like a sibling. Well, it is completely better than being awkward around each other.

Come to think of it…..This aspect of Ludi should only be known to the protagonist, isn’t it?  Is it fine for her to show this side of her to me?

“Hm, did I ever told you my favorite flavor?”

Ah, I might not have heard of it before. I heard it too many times to count in the game though.

“Oi oi, didn’t you told me about it when we were with sempai?”

At a time like this, it would be better to say it with confidence. Most people should be fooled by this.

“Was that the case?”

She uninterestedly scoops up the ice cream with her spoon. It might be because her magic power still hasn’t recovered yet, her every action is so sluggish. Seeing her like that I remembered something.

“……….Hey, Ludi. won’t you help me in my experiment.”

“Ha?”

“What are you talking about?”

She answered with a sour look while trying to eat her ice cream.

“Well, actually Claris-san just taught me gift magic and I still haven’t tried using it on others yet. If Ludi is fine with it I want to try it with you.”

She nodded while having a spoon in her mouth. Normally it would be really cute but she looks kinda sloppy considering she is an actual royalty.

“Hee, You learned some unusual magic. I remembered that it was inefficient magic isn’t it?”

Certainly, it is as she said. However, if I raised it to the max level the efficiency should be raised considerably. That’s why I want to raise its level as soon as possible.

“It really is, but if I use it, it might get better in the future, right? That’s why I want to practice it.”

“I see.”

“It will be a training for me and it will make you feel better, so how about it?”

She answered my question with a nod.

“Sure, I will be in your care then..”

As Ludi turns to face me, I give her my hand. However, she tilted her head.

“What are you doing?”

“Ah, sorry. I still have to touch the target to send over my magic, because, you know? my constitution.”

Ludi nodded.

“Th, That’s right.”

She put her ice cream on the table and wipe her hand with a handkerchief.

I then approached her slowly and touch her hand.

“Don’t be so nervous.”

“I don’t.”

Her hand is sweating a little even though she wiped it just now.

“Ludi’s hand, so warm.”

“Don’t say something strange and just do it already, Stupid (TLN: Baka)”

I don’t remember saying anything strange though. Well, as she said, let’s do this.

“Nn….. it’s flowing into me……”

I felt Ludi’s magic power, I gradually send my magic power toward them.

“How is it? If you got the magic properly then I want to gradually increase the output here…… can I?

“Yeah, I got it. Okay…..keep it coming……Nn…….Fueh?”

I gradually raise my magic output. However, the more I increase the more my magic is leaking out. I still don’t have enough training.

“Nn….nn. Wai, Wait a minute!”

“Eh, what’s wrong?”

Looking at Ludi, her face is slightly red.

“I’m….I’m fine. It felt very ticklish though.”

“Aa, you’re not fine at all, right? Claris-san’s face got red when I tried it too.”

Come to think of it, when I transfer my magic power to Claris-san she said some vague thing like “Kuh, I will never give in”…………what was that all about? Well fine, let’s raise the output for now.

“U,uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu, Ahhhhhhh”

“H, Hey stop making weird noises.”

Ludi has an incomprehensible expression where she looked to be in pain and feeling pleasant at the same time. Moreover, her face and her distinctive pointed ears are red as well.

“Th, this is…bad o..O..s…Stop it.”

“Ah, sorry. I still haven’t train it that much so I can’t immediately lower the output……”

You see, when you turn off the old faucet the water still flows a little before it completely stops, right? Switching it off really is troublesome.

“Y, youuuu idiooooot !! (TLN: BAAKAAAA)

Seeing Ludi’s swaying body I thought that this is seriously bad. However, I have no choice but to slowly lower the output.

She could just let go of my hand though.

When I was pulling my hand back, I noticed that I can’t let go since she is not just grabbing my hand but also tightly squeezing it too.

Then….

“Kya.”

Failing to pull my hand away from her, instead, I ended up pulling her body toward me. Currently, our eyes and body are in close contact.

By the way, I noticed it just now, but it seems like the more the contacted area is the more I can send my magic power efficiently.

“AbababaBa”

From the part our skin is touching, my magic power flows into her with tremendous force. Ludi let out a scream like the one I have seen in a manga I read a long time ago while leaning on me.

“Hii…Hyu…..Halp mee….”

I felt her weird breathing on me. Her forehead is sweating and the woman-specific sweet smell is mixing in with the smell of her sweat, stimulating my brain. But that was not the only thing that gives the stimulus. Her bare skin I am touching is soft and warm, also the sensation of her sweat. The weight that she entrusted to me while leaning in and a bead of sweat that is flowing along her smooth white nape. They are all providing me stimuli.

This is getting dangerous

“Lu, Ludi. Are you okay!? Let’s move away from each other first.”

Her wet eyes seem like she wants to ask me for something. Then she increases the strength in her hand and wouldn’t let me escape. Honestly, I don’t want to let go either but………….this is truly getting dangerous. Dangerous in a lot of ways. I can’t let go, even if I can, I don’t want to. She won’t let me go in the first place.

In the end, she didn’t let go of me until the gift magic was over.
