There is a loud noise from downstairs, someone was shouting.
It was after, I left the dungeon, sold the materials to the guild, and I was reading a book in the library.
My reading time can be considered a daily routine, since I have been doing it every day since I came to this world. Looking back on my previous days, it wasn’t this noisy, even though other adventurers came back and start being rowdy in the evening.
“What is it?” I thought worriedly.
I closed the book I was reading, put it back on the shelf, and headed to the first floor.
When I went down to the first floor, there was a tense atmosphere.
“Someone! Does anyone have any potion!? Is there anyone who can use recovery magic!” (Girl)
Shouts, a girl who has animal-like features and cat-like ears on her head.
At her feet, a male human wearing a beatup armor, who seems like a warrior. Is bleeding from his abdomen.
The adventurers and guild staff around me are also gathering. I asked, “What’s wrong?”
“Please! There must be someone! I’ll properly pay for it! I need it immediately or else Dan will die!” (Girl => Catgirl)
A man steps forward in front of a screaming Beast-man girl, Hans-san.
“I’m sorry, Miss. It’s unusual for an adventurer to always have a potion to heal such grave wounds in this village. First of all, most don’t need it. So, we don’t have it in the store. And the old priest. Unfortunately… well, he is too old to use strong magic.” (Hans)
“Is that so…” (Catgirl)
The place is wrapped in silence and a dark atmosphere filled the area.
Hmm … I understood the general situation by listening to the conversation.
Nobody here can use recovery magic.
According to the book I read in the library, there are few people who can use recovery magic, but it is not impossible. It was written that there are always several people who can use recovery magic in churches, and there are a certain number in other towns. Especially for high ranking parties, it is natural that there are some members who can use recovery magic.
So, I thought that there would be at least one person in this village who could use recovery magic. However, in reality, there was no such person.
Well, “except for me”, though.
In other words, it can be said that the book wasn’t wrong…
No, Hans-san said that the old priest was too old to use advance magic. Then, maybe he can use normal recovery magic. He just can’t use advance magics that heal deep wounds.
――Well, the problem is more about what I will do.
I can use recovery magic. But I feel that my magic is different from ordinary magic. I have that feeling. If you use it in public, it may stand out in a bad way. And if something goes wrong, I won’t have the power to survive.
Now I’m just an adventurer who has more basic abilities than other people, I can use martial arts reasonably well. I can also use this mysterious recovery magic. In this world where there is a concept that ability improves by leveling up, even if you have talent, if the level is low, the ability would also be low.
I know, it’s not a good idea to stand out at my current situation. I want to refrain from being noticed as much as possible.
Also, I haven’t tried how effective my recovery magic is in the first place, so I don’t know. I didn’t want to wound myself just to measure the recovery power of my recovery magic. So I just used it for myself to practice. If I’m not careful, I could end up letting them get their hopes up and not be able to help them, and just end up standing out by using my magic.
If you ask me, how can I abandon a man who is about to die in front of me, and a woman who needs help, and keep my face calm and silent? If I was asked…
I would say it is impossible.
My heart is not that strong.
If I abandon him without doing anything here, I know it will remain a regret in my heart for the rest of my life.
So, there has never been any other choice but to do it.
I took a deep breath and exhaled.
I’ve thought about this a lot just to make this decision. This is a situation where every minute counts.
The heroes in the story would have saved him before he could think of anything else.
But I don’t think I can do that.
“I can’t be the hero of a story”, I said to myself, and took a step forward.
“I’m sorry. Please let me through.”
I made my way through the crowd.
After some people stepped aside, I rushed to the collapsed person.
“I can use recovery magic. I don’t know if I can help you, but I hope to try.”
“Really!? Anything you can do is fine!” (Catgirl)
“Oh, really, you could use recovery magic?” (Hans)
Hans-san is saying something, but for the time being, I chose to ignore him and concentrate.
What I’m going to do now requires a lot of concentration and I don’t have much leeway.
Kneeling in front of the warrior, I closed my eyes and focus on the magical power at my TanDen, slowly moving that magical power to my right hand. Slowly and carefully chanting it in my heart.
(Divine light, heal your people!)
Then, magical power flows from my hand to the wand, and before gathering at the tip of the cane.
Go! I did it! All I have to do is activate it!
I chanted spell name in my heart.
Please! Please work!
At that moment, what happened was quite spectacular.
The tip of the cane I was holding was shining, the light shined on the man on the floor, and the area around his wound began to shine.
His expression, from a deep frown and sweating from pain soon softened. And somehow I saw that his wounds had been healed. Now, I am sure that the magic was successful.
The light gradually subsides.
Silence surrounds the room.
That’s what I wanted to do while I was in this village, and that’s make [Holy Light] chantless.
It seems to be a rare kind of magic. I don’t want to become conspicuous by using it. But there will be times when I will need to use it. I’ve been practicing hard, thinking that if I could just draw out the effect of the spell without chanting it, then people wouldn’t be able to tell what kind of spell I used. So I practiced and practiced, and this is the result.
I didn’t expect to come across an opportunity to use it this soon…
I’m not sure how to do it, but it was vaguely written in the magic instruction book in the guild’s resource room, so I was able to figure it out. In short, chanting firmly in the mind, the image of the art, and sense are important.
So I was able to get a good idea of doing it chant-lessly, but it took a lot of time to get rid of the phrase “Holy Light”.
Interesting right? However, although I succeeded in making [Holy Ligh] chant-less, I have not succeeded in making other spells chant-less. Even [Light Source] was unsuccessful.
I let out the breath I was holding.
There were two kinds of people here. People who looked surprised or overwhelmed by the sight, and people who looked at me like the beast-man girl next to me. But both are waiting for me to say something. Here goes.
I stood up and turned to the beast-man girl.
As expected, I think I know what everyone is waiting for.
“Success! He’s healed.”
The moment I said that, cheers broke out from all over the guild.
From the beast-man girl, the big sister from the receptionist table, and all the adventurers who are gathered.
Now, I truly believe that what I did was not a mistake.
“Chant-less? No, he’s discarded even using the spell name… Was recovery magic not that complex?”
I was alone in a cold sweat when I heard Hans-san murmuring amidst the cheers of everyone.
