I was smiling on the sofa in the living room after the meal
The dish I just ate was the most delicious in my 100 plus years of living.
I have had many different dishes in my life.
I am still in my early years, but even so, I have gained more experience than most of my kind.
It is not just a matter of how many times I have tried it; it is also a matter of how many times I wanted to try it.
I would be a fool to miss out on such a great meal.
I am not going to be the only one who would do that.
I never thought that I would be so gripped by food.
In my life so far, my interest has only been in my quest for magic.
Other than magic, everything was only was second or third place in my priorities.
I might still be wearing raggedy clothes if I had not been “trained” by the adventurer party I traveled with in the past.
――It is a good thing that I was able to get the most out of my own body because until then, I had no interest in my own appearance.
“Lily is so beautiful! What a waste!” (Voice from Lily’s past)
Because of the daily complaints of the female adventurer, I have developed a habit of keeping myself well groomed.
Aside from that, I was not even interested in my own personal grooming.
It is the first time for me to be moved by something other than magic.
“… Huh” (Lily)
――I never thought I would be so moved by a meal.
“… Mmmm.” (Lily)
――Is it time for the next meal.
I was already looking forward to the next meal.
I could sense a faint magical spell from outside the house.
A short time later, I heard a thumping sound of something crashing.
Recalling the memory of the delicious meal, me, who was about to doze off, sat up with my eyes opened.
This is not a pleasant atmosphere for a nap.
Walking around the house, I listened closely.
The sound seemed to be coming from the Garden behind the house.
I puff out my cheeks and head into the Garden.
When I got into the Garden, the anger I had been building up was instantly cooled.
In the yard, Toru and Esther were sparring with wooden swords in their hands.
Toru and Esther’s swordsmanship is amazing.
I, who has no interest in anything other than magic, has no eyes to evaluate their skillfulness in detail. Still, I can roughly gauge their level.
The two swordsmen are definitely C-rank adventurers.
What surprised me was not their high level of swordsmanship. (Rather, I lost interest in their swordsmanship in an instant)
What surprised me was Toru.
He is just a fledgling magician who came to buy magic just a week or two ago.
Him as a quintet. He has a talent I cannot understand. [T/N: What? He is a nonet, right? Is this like “Ogre/Graf”? Did the author just change it in some chapters without editing the rest? I do not know about this.]
(That was absolutely the measurement jewel was already broken. Yeah. It must be.)
Toru bought only the most basic magic spells.
That is why I thought that he would just gradually improve his magic skills.
However, what about the sight that is right in front of me?
Toru always activates [Strength Enhancement].
He should take at least a month before he can move while simultaneously activating [Strength Enhancement].
Despite this, Toru was at the same level as Esther-no, he is using the spell in a more efficient way
That is not all.
Toru also has five simultaneous [water ball] floating overhead and spinning around!
Is he going to use those [water ball] to attack?
I thought so, but Toru would not use it to attack no matter how long I have waited.
What is he doing with attack magic floating over his head?
“…I do not understand what he is doing.” (Lily)
After watching the training for a while, Esther’s tip was pressed against Toru’s neck.
In swordsmanship, they were evenly matched or Toru might even be a bit higher.
However, it seems that Esther has a more refined battle sense.
“Oh, I have lost again huh?”
“It cannot be helped, because Toru has not had much time since you came to Eargard.” (Esther)
“I would be depressed if I lost to Toru, who has been holding a sword for less than a month. You can still keep losing to me!” (Esther)
Lily’s ears perked up at the end of the sparring match and the conversation between the two fighters while taking a break.
“Since you came to Eargard?” (Lily)
“Hmm, Oh Lily, you are here. I am sorry I did not notice.”
“Okay, more than that, since you came to Eargard?” (Lily)
“Um … that is …”
Esther made a face as she looked at Toru’s reaction.
Toru opens his mouth to continue.
“I am a ‘lost’ person”
When I was told that he was a “Lost”, I was shocked as I have never been before.
Naturally, having lived for a long time, I am well aware of what a “Lost” is like.
I have seen many “lost” people, but all of them deserved to be called “inferior”.
Moreover, there was no exception.
(A lost person and a quintet? Therefore, proficient with less than a month of practice…!?) (Lily)
A guttural sound came out of my mouth.
Then, only a single word followed out of my mouth.
I have lived for more than a century.
I have never heard of a human being who has mastered magic and has mastered it to a practical level in just a month.
The only thing I can say is that that kind person could not be an “inferior” person.
“Is Toru really a ‘lost’ person?” (Lily)
“Yes, that is what they say.”
If he is lying and pretending to be “Lost”, a little research will soon debunk it.
Nevertheless, an adventurer will not be the one who calls himself a “Lost”.
Because that is the same as saying, ‘I am not capable of doing any work at all.”
The probability of Toru being a “lost” person is very high.
So how is it that he has mastered the swordsmanship at a C-ranked adventurer’s level and he has mastered the magic at an astonishing rate?
Moreover, he is a skilled cook who can make incredibly delicious food.
――Who is Toru.
No matter how much I thought about that question, I just could not find an answer.
