Chapter 14 , departure
“Norvin, it's morning.”
A shake on my shoulder woke me up and I saw Misha's face in front of me.
It's a greeting I've been doing since I came to this world.
I feel like I can relate to people and become a real human being just by doing this.
In short, it's all about the attitude.
It raises my motivation.
“Misha, you're up early every morning, aren't you?”
I blocked Misha's efforts to get me dressed and talked about nothing else.
“It's my job to wake you up.'
“You get used to waking up early.
It's only hard for the first few days, but after that it becomes a routine.”
'It's just like training, isn't it?”
“Hmmm, I guess you could say that.”
It's like learning magic or studying.
The first step in anything is hard and uncomfortable.
Speaking of training, ——
Did you bring me a new book?”
“Yes, it's already on your desk.”
Misha looked at desk , and sure enough, there were books on the study table.
There is no longer any need to hide my studies, and now I can place them proudly on my desk.
I've changed so much, haven't I?
—A month or so has passed since then.
Schneizel left right after that, and I went back to the my house as usual.
I was told that I could live in the main house until I became an apprentice, but I felt more at ease in the nearby house , where I knew everything about the place, rather than having to deal with a complete stranger's family and being reserved.
For the past month, I have spent my days concentrating on magic, study, and basic physical training, which I used to do in secret.
But that's all over now.
'What are your plans for today?”
I''m going to have breakfast in fifteen minutes, and then study.
In the afternoon, Commander Schneizel will come to pick me up, so after lunch I''ll be ready to leav”e.
Today is the last day before the apprenticeship.
No, well, I don't know if it's the last, because there is a possibility that I might come back or something.
But I do feel a little sad.
It was my first time for me i and I didn't know where I was going.
The day I managed to make Misha a companion by sorting out the situation by hand.
It was fun to sneak around and study and practice magic.
I guess I was fulfilled, after all.
Misha looked into my face to see if there was something funny.
“I was just thinking about all the things I've done in this room.”
Yes, now when I think about it, a lot of things happened.'
Misha, holding the healing magic light in her hand, muttered deeply.
After the vampire case , she worked harder and now Misha is better than me when it comes to the recovery magic .
I want to help her.
I don't want to be a failure.
Misha, who is following me as my companion , will probably continue to work hard in many ways in the future.
I'm so grateful for that.
Let's work hard for another day!
I finished my morning studies and the hastily interrupted exercise because I finished my studies early, had lunch, and found that it was time for Schneizel's picking me up.
Together with Misha, I left house and headed for the front gate of the grounds.
Even if the children of this family were going away, no one said goodbye to me.
At most, the servants who had become involved with the family over the past month gave a small nod.
No family members saw me off.
“Hey, long time no see, kid.'
A familiar man alighted from a large carriage parked in front of the main gate.
He is tall and thin, but not just skinny, his muscles are stretched to the limit, covering his body like steel.
His black hair is flowing in the wind, and he is Schneizel, the strongest man in the world.
It's been a while, Mr.
Or should I call you Master?'
“I don't mind either way.
And the girl over there is Misha, right?”
“I am Misha Strauss.
I will be accompanying .
Norwin as his personal maid, so nice to mee you “
“Oh, well, it's nice to meet you.
Well, it's not a first meeting, though”.
The reason is that Schneizel was the one who carried Misha to this mansion while she was unconscious.
Misha, who doesn't know that, just tilts his head cocked in puzzlement.
If it weren't for the age gap, I would have fallen in love with her.
Well, I'm still in adore her.
“Well, shall we go now? Have you said your farewells yet?”
Yes, I'm fine now.
Misha please ——.'
I spoke to my companion yesterday.
“Yes, that's right.
We're ready to go.”
“All right, let's go!”
Schneizel was about to jump on the carriage with great energy.
But as if to intercept her first step, a voice came from behind me.
“You've gone away without even saying goodbye to your father.”
I turned around to see a handsome gentleman smiling at me.
It was Nicolas, Norwin's father.
” I don't suppose to say anything to you.”
'It hurts my ears to hear you say that.
It is true that we are not close enough to talk to each other.”
As he said, Nicolas had not approached me for the past month.
But that's not the point.
I can't trust this person because I don't understand what he is thinking.
To be frank, I am scared.
There is even a possibility that what at first glance may seem to be for my benefit may turn out to be for Nicolas' benefit.
I was not sure if he knew I was wary or not, but Nicolas was talking to me with a smile on his face.
“We have np strong bond , but I have some advice for my departing son.”
I would love to hear the advice of a man who is so good at plotting and scheming, to be honest.
'Yes, I suppose you're right.
How do people like us do things? That's the basic idea.
You understand, Norwin–“
And so he spoke.
Nicholas said it in a calm tone, as if he were addressing his beloved son.
“What you need is to give everything more than one meaning.
One action has one meaning, and this is no different from the moves of an ordinary person.
If you want to go to the next level, you need to put two or three things in everything you do, and leave the geniuses and the mediocre ones behind.
As the saying goes in the Far East, you need to kill two birds with one stone.'
“Are you all right?”
I was surprised.
I thought I would have jumped out of my skin when I suddenly heard the Japanese words.
Since the game is produced by a Japanese company, there may be a country very similar to Japan as a world view that was not mentioned in the game.
Now I'm convinced of that.
“May I continue the talking?”
'Yes, of course”.
Nicolas, who was amused by my confusion, deepened his smile before continuing.
'What you need for that is knowledge.
Read a lot of books.
Acquire countless knowledge and make it into points.
Connect the pieces and draw new horizons.
If you have the ability to think like that, you will be a great black-hearted raccoon.'
I wonder if he was joking in his own way.
Was he intentionally saying something strange in order to get us to take a step closer to him?
As usual, I could not understand his way of thinking, but I understood the importance of the words he had just said to me.
'You should definitely continue the practice of learning to read two books at once,.
“Do you know that much?”
“Of course I know that much.
I'm your father, no matter what anyone says.'
Nicolas winked at me teasing.
“You're almost middle aged, but you're handsome and I'm not disgusted by your current behavior”.
Really, he's a man who has treated me so coldly, but for some reason I can't hate him.
The words I just now received were very helpful.”
“I'm glad to hear that.
I'll be praying for your development from here.
Well then, have a safe trip.'
I didn't think anyone would see me off, but at the end, with Nicolas smiling at me and seeing me off…
“Well, I'll be going now.”
“—– Oh, I can't reach him.'
', I'll hold him.”
“You may be all grown up, but you're still a kid on inside , aren't you?”
“What's wrong with that?”
—I left the mansion where I had spent the last four months.
Finally, , I can make a real move to change the story.
T.n it was finale chapter of prelude arc .
Next act its called red haired twins .
Hope you enjoyed that series so far !
