Chapter 22: Firm determination
Having prepared breakfast, the three of us sit around the table, prepare for work, and go to the guild.
Today I old hands with Douglas-san…
After arriving at the guild, we split up and I head to the Health Department's workplace.
When I enter the room, Mints-san and Paris-san are already at work.
“Good morning, Chika-kun.”
When I say hello, they both smile and return the greeting.
“So, Chika-kun, I'm not going to delay it, about yesterday…
Did your determination change?”
My heart is already decided.
“No, I apologize for causing you trouble, Mintz-san.
Please, let me ask this favour of you.”
“You don't have to worry about causing me trouble…
No matter what I say, you have already decided, Chika-kun.
If so, my mind is also made up.”
It looks a bit troubling, but he seems to have accepted it.
“Then, I'll call them out after a calm lunch at work.
I'll give the pretext that we want to try Chika-kun's healing technique in a 'mate' and need the two of them to cooperate.
“Yes, thank you.”
“But you must promise me this.
If you feel any discomfort in yourself, or if you feel something is wrong, stop immediately.
I'm a little worried, but I can't lie to Mintz-san.
I convey my honest feelings.
“Minz-san, I'm sorry, but…
I can't promise that.
If I were to do anything that threatened my own life, I would't stop doing it.
This is the best repayment I can give them, since I'm their 'mate' I'm uneasy about leaving the two of them behind, but I still…''
“Chika-kun!? Don't say that even if that's what you think.
That must never happen.
Chika-kun, I understand your feelings very well, and I will do my best to support you.”
Then, thank you very much!”
We get the morning work done.
I am worried about what I am going to do in the afternoon, but I change my attention to focus on what is in front of me.
I lose myself in the medical treatment I carry out and, when I come to myself, time for lunch has already passed.
Mintz-san and Paris-san take me to the dining room and I have a meal, but when I think about the future, I can't advance much through my meal.
“Chika, you have to eat well.”
I'm scolded by Mintz-san.
Certainly, I have to keep my strength.
I manage to keep everything in my stomach, but I don't know what it tastes like.
I'm sorry to the person who made it, but I hope they can forgive me for today.
“Then I will call those two, so Chika-kun, you should go back to the clinic first.
Paris, you should call Glen just in case.”
“It's just in case.
If the two of them were to offer resistance, Glen'll be the only one who can stop them if they use force.”
I'm sorry I've got everyone involved.”
“Chika-kun, you don't have to worry.
We are doing it because we want to, besides Glenn will surely be delighted by what you're trying to do.”
Paris-san and Mintz-san leave their seats and walk to their respective destinations.
I also brace myself and return to the examination room, calm down a little, take a deep breath and wait.
Paris-san and Glen-san are the first who come back.
“Oh, Chika-kun, I heard it from Paris.
Those two guys are my idols! I'll be happy to cooperate.
But I don't know to what extent I'll be able to restrain them with my strength.
I'll try my best!”
But Glen-san, please don't get hurt by overdoing it.
If that happens, I won't be able to face Mintz-san.”
“Yeah, Glen is just like insurance for a rainy day.”
In the meanwhile, two people come in sight guided by Mintz-san.
You want to try a new healing technique? Say, why is Glen here?”
“Glen wants to see Chika-kun's healing technique once, so I just thought it was a good chance for him to join us.”
When he says that, Glen-san nods sharply without moving from his upright position.
“I'm sorry for causing trouble when both of you are busy.”
I quickly bow my head.
“No, I don't mind it, but if you want to try a healing technique, should I make a wound somewhere? Would a big wound be better?”
While saying so, Gail-san pulls out the sword that hangs on his waist and carries the blade to his arm without hesitation.
“No, it's okay! It's okay! Put your sword down.”
Gail-san looks at me with a strange look when I stop him in a hurry.
“Well then, branch manager, you go on this examination table, Gail-san, you should sit on that examination table.
Chika-kun, are you ready?”
When I hear Mintz-san's voice I go through the procedure in my head again.
I will start with Douglas-san, whose damage is a bigger handicap.
If Douglas-san can be healed, Gale-san's disability will certainly not be that difficult.1
That's the best considering the possibility that the two of them will come to stop me.
“Yes! Well then, is it okay if I try it out with you, Douglas-san?”
“I don't mind, but I don't have any parts that need healing right now, is that okay?”
“It's okay! If there is any pain that you can't stand, please let me know.”
Due to the tension, my hands are wet with sweat and my body is trembling a little.
I crawl up to the examination table where Douglas-san is sitting, stand on my knees and put my hand on Douglas-san's missing shoulder.
“Hey, Chika, that place is…”
“I'm sorry, Douglas-san, you can get as mad as you want later, so please don't move now.”
“I'm sorry, branch manager! Now listen to what Chika-kun says, please!”
Glen-san desperately tries to keep Douglas-san from moving.
Gail-san tries to get up from the other examination table, but Paris-san stands up in front of him and stretches his body to prevent him from coming here.
I thank them in my heart and start healing.
A loss of the left arm from the top of the shoulder.
First is the skeleton, which is formed by the backbone, the humerus, the elbow joint, and the ulna that connect to the shoulder joint.9
Starting from the wrist joints, including the eight short bones that make up the carpal bones, I call to mind the combination of the twenty-seven bones of the palm from proximal to distal.
Once I put in a great amount of magic power, I know that a large amount of energy flows into Douglas-san.
Next is the nervous system.
I image the flow of nerves of the spinal cord missing from the top of his shoulder.
I imagine the nerve roots extending from the C5, the C6, the C7, the C8 and the T1 of the spinal cord, and the necessary nerves extending from the bundle of nerves to the arm.6
The axillary nerve, the musculocotaneous nerve, the radial nerve, the ulnar nerve, the antebrachial nerve, the median nerve, the nervous system is too large…
I can't get the image together in my head.5
But I can't give up here, because this is all I can do.
The nerves in the palm are controlled by the radius, the median and the ulnar nerves.
It will be okay if I can imagine each control area successfully.
When the image is finished, my body loses its energy and it flows into Douglas-san.
I can hear Douglas-san yelling near my head.
But I don't worry about that.
I can't stop here.
“Sorry Douglas-san! Please do not move! Please!”
The vascular system is also huge.
First of all, I picture the image from the thickest brachial artery towards the distal side in order, from the radial artery and the ulnar artery to the thick blood vessels, the thin blood vessels and the capillaries, and when I finish the arteries next are the veins, in which the flow of blood returns, on the contrary, from the thin veins to the thick veins and into the brachial veins.
Every time the image of each part is completed, the white shining light that surrounds Douglas-san shines strongly for a moment and then weakens, when the next part is imaged the brightness increases again, and then it weakens over again.
Each time, my body loses its strength, but I don't care.
I have to get through this.
Finally, the muscle and skin tissue.
I image the trapezius muscle from the shoulder, and then the deltoid muscle divided into the anterior, lateral and posterior parts, followed by the long and short heads of the biceps brachii muscle in front of the upper arm, and the anterior, lateral and posterior parts of the triceps brachii muscle on the rear of the forearm.3
What is it…? My body feels very heavy…
No, don't think about unnecesary things.2
After that, there are nearly twenty forearm muscle groups that exist in the forearm.
I also build an image of these from proximal to distal.
Finally, the twelve muscles present in the fingers that control the movement of the palm and the fingers.
Then, I clearly image the skin that wraps everything I have imaged so far.
Alright, the image is clearly organized.
I put more strength into the magic power I put in, and the energy that comes out of my body now is more than ever.
This is bad, I don't have strength in my body…
The white light wrapped around Douglas-san gives off aparticularly large glow and shrinks gradually, and after the light goes out,the left arm which wasn't there before is completely restored.8
It's the same sturdy arm as the big right arm that holds me gently.
Douglas-san looks with a startled expression I had never seen before, giving the impression that his mind isn't here.
It looks good.
I was worried that there might be a dysfunction, but that's not the case now.
However, the strength of my body has faded and honestly, I doubt I can stand up.
“Gl-Glen-san…, carry me……to Gail-san plea……se”
Glen-san walks away from Douglas-san, holds me in his arms and lets me off at Gail-san's location.
il-san, right now…
don't ask me…
Just a little…
My body is weak, but my head is still working normally.
I put my hand on Gail-san's left ankle and begin to put in magic power.
A dysfunction of the left ankle.1
I don't have to restore it, so I need to focus on healing the areas that are causing an impairment.
Using a healing technique to heal just what is torn off in appearance, it's expected that the muscles and nerves won't be working properly.
Considering an ankle disability and paralysis, is a paralysis of the common peroneal nerve or of the area of the nervus peroneus?
First of all, I imagine the two nerves respectively and pour magic power.
Just in case, I think of a normal image of the the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles, and the Achilles tendon and put in magic power.5
Like with Douglas-san, when the normal image is completed, the light shines and converges.
Though not as much as with Douglas-san, I lose energy from my body again.
I can't tell by how it looks, but I have the feelingthat Gale-san's leg must have been healed.
“Ga…il-san, Dougla…s-san, I'm so…rry for…
Don't get angry…
with Mintz-san and…
the others ple…
That was my limit.
As if I had severe anemia or hypoglycemia, my eyes become dark, my whole body loses its strength and I fall into the ground.
I can hear many voices calling me from the distance, but I have no energy to reply.
As it is, my consciousness is swallowed by darkness.+

I've investigated the medical contents, but I doubt every detail is perfect.
I would appreciate it if you could read it as a fiction.
