20th story: Self-proclaimed genius magician ④
Today, we may finally arrive at Comer city. Demons of the second rank, such as black wolves and goblin leaders have started appearing.
Demons of rank 2 possess multiple skills and it was a golden opportunity to practice against them in a cooperation play. Goblin Leaders lead Goblin Soldiers and Mages so we could practice party fights.
The Black Wolves skill can stop our movements. We have to cover each other and when Lena or Nina get injured I heal them. While I and Lena are also trying to use our magic. It was a good experience.
By the way, these are their statuses:
|Spear mastery:||Lvl. 2|
|Body Enhancement:||Lvl. 1|
|Spear strike:||Lvl. 1|
|Agility up:||Lvl. 1|
“Yu.. What are you making? ”
Nina seemed to be interested. I was making an antidote using poison grass, which grew by the roadside and mixing it with water from a nearby river.
” It’s an antidote. ”
Lena already knew about it, since Nina was talking nonstop, so I need to do some spanking punishment to her afterwards.
” Isn’t Lena able to cure poison? You learned it too, right? ”
” A magic skill is still magic. If I were to run out of MP, I may need this. Here, there’s some for you. ”
” Owh.. I see. Thanks! ”
Lena also inched over while I was talking.
” Yu.. really thinks thoroughly. ”
” Don’t casually call me.. Just quickly gather your 100 gold and go away. ”
” There is no way. Because I’m… ”
Nina then whispered something to her.
” Yu is making potions and we will get quest rewards and money from materials, however, for a party like ours, gathering such an amount will take years. However, he doesn’t know the importance of school. ” (PR: Nina)
” What? It will take that long? ” (PR: Lena)
” What are you guys talking about behind my back? ” (PR: Yu)
(TL note: I was kind of lost here. Is Yu being sarcastic? Idk.. I tought Lena need to gather 100gold but it seemed her parents is the one paying for it? PR note: I think Lena already has the gold but Nina wants Yu to enter school too, but she doesn’t let Yu know that )
” I will go to the Imperial City castle and enter the school. They have promised me that, in the future, I will be their court magician. ” (Lena)
” Concerning the school, she may get a variety of magic skills and may get her job promoted from magician. ” (Nina)
” In the first place, I don’t know the differences between jobs, nor the importance of working for the King in the capital. ” (Yu)
” Yu.. What are you saying? If the job isn’t suitable, you can’t remember spells. ” (Nina)
” Skills and magic are the same… ” (Lena)
” I’m not sure about that. After all, Nina’s skills are increasing. ”
” I’m a thief, so I will unlock skills from the thief class. Even the skills have to be related to the job. ” (Nina)
” For me, [White magic] was inherited from my mother. However, since I’m a magician, I can’t fully utilize it. ” (Lena)
Nina and Lena explained to him that, even though two people can have the same skill, but the related class could cause a correction to the skill’s power. Like a Magicians or a Sage, Sage’s MP consumption gets reduced.
Yu didn’t mind their nagging and ignored them. While they were at it, they saw the adventurers that used to be in the same party as Lena.
“They managed to come here? ”
(TL note: it seemed Lena was out searching for a party? And the guys expected her to fail?)
” Yu.. This is Comer city. ”
Comer city is a real city. Unlike Resser and Vivid villages, which were small. It was surrounded by a wall and the entrance was guarded by gate keepers.
” We have arrived at the city, that means our party is disbanded. ” (Yu)
Lena tilted her head.
” You said we’re only in a party until we arrive, right? But, did anyone say that I will have to leave? ” (Lena)
” Excellent.. to have Lena continue partying with us. ” (Nina)
” What? ” (Yu)
” Sorry Yu.. I forgot to tell you. ” (Nina)
” Yu, Nina, don’t worry. Instead, you should be proud to have me, the strongest genius magician, in your party. ” (Lena)
” It’s a nightmare.. ”

(TL note: so let me make some summary. Lena was partying with Yu to gather money to enter a magician school. If she was admitted she will be one of the court magician in the future. However she need 100 gold and to collect it, she is partying with Yu. Does anyone have a better explanation? The author conversation were confusing me.
PR note: let’s do some predictions: mine: like earlier stated, Lena got the money already, but isn’t saying anything because she wants to travel with them and maybe get Yu to enter to.
raaaandy (from the comments): Rich parents, but Lena has to get the 100 gold herself and Yu isn’t knowing shit about their girl talk.)
