Just one thing, though… I’m concerned about the uneven area formed after casting the spell.
I was trying to visualize a straight line, but it seems my control was lacking.
“One more time…” [Ryouma]
I visualized harder and imagined a blade cutting the wall.
I calmed down my heart and patiently controlled my mana.
I also changed the name of the spell to make it easier to visualize.
“… ‘Stone Cutter’ ! …I guess this is good enough.” [Ryouma]
The cut was a lot cleaner this time around and the groove formed were about half as wide as before. The cut itself was also smoother.
I wish the cut would be even narrower, but this is good enough for now. I’ll think of how to do that later.
“Next is…” [Ryouma]
After the second cast of the spell, the wall now resembled a pillar somewhat. I tried crushing that wall with a spell.
After all, I am able to succeed in controlling Break Rock… It should be fine if I’m a bit rough.
I went ahead and visualized the wall cracking.
“… ‘Crack’! Alright! Another success!” [Ryouma]
A lightning-like crack formed on the detached part, then the wall broke from the middle and collapsed with a thunderous roar toward the front.
As expected, earth magic really has a lot of freedom.
Although it’s also because I’m used to it, but it’s really easy to do what you want with it.
“Ah, maybe I can do even that.” [Ryouma]
I thought of something and gave it a try. Somehow this has gotten really fun!
What I thought of was those crater things that I often saw in manga.
Those craters that formed when someone got hit and was sent smashing to some piece of earth.
Right. Let’s call it…
” ‘Wall Break’ !!” [Ryouma]
I mustered even more mana than I have so far and pushed it into the wall, then I made it flow all over it.
Then spider-nest-like cracks formed deeply on the wall, and the wall started to collapse.
I’m sure the wall will collapse if I continue at this just a little more.
A result just as I’d imagined!
And it sped up my work by a whole lot too!
“About 2 meters in diameter, I guess.” [Ryouma]
That’s a huge progress compared to the initial 40cm I was working with. I’m using more mana now than before, but considering how much I’m able to cover, this way is still more efficient. If I cast this spell another time, I will have collapsed most of this wall.
“What’s going on!?” [Young Man]
While I was having fun with the results of my magic, the man from before came back.
“Good job out there! What’s the matter?” [Ryouma]
“We’ve been hearing a lot of loud sounds coming from here since a while ago, so the boss told me to go take a look. Did you do this?” [Young Man]
“Yes! I tried doing it in my own style! What do you think?” [Ryouma]
“…You might actually be an amazing mage.” [Young Man]
“Thank you very much. I’m skilled at earth magic and people say my mana is equal to that of imperial court mages.” [Ryouma]
“In any case, there doesn’t seem to be any problems, so please continue. I have other orders, but I don’t really know what to do, so I’ll just call my boss.” [Young Man]
“I understand!” [Ryouma]
After that the field overseer himself acknowledged my work and I continued destroying walls.
Work ended around noon. I was able to store a lot of rubble into my dimension home, so I was able to go back in high spirits.
As I was about to leave…
“Hey. If you want you can work with us permanently.” [Boss]
Their boss offered me employment, but I courteously refused.
I went back to the adventurers guild to rendezvous with Fei-san.
“Uncle, you’re so strong~” [Pretty Female Adventurer 1]
“If you want, you can party with us.” [Pretty Female Adventurer 2]
“Unfortunately, I have another job. Thank you for inviting me though.” [Fei]
“Uncle, are you single?” [Pretty Female Adventurer 3]
“I have a daughter as young as you girls!” [Fei]
Fei-san was really popular with the pretty female adventurers.
“Damn it! If I just called out to them sooner!” [Envious Adventurer 1]
“Just who is that old man!” [Envious Adventurer 2]
“Umm~ Excuse me. Did something happen?” [Ryouma]
Apparently, according to the male adventurers who were looking at Fei-san full of envy, Fei-san had taken a job after registering and was able to succeed. He then went to the receptionist to report.
It so happened that a party of female adventurers that was starting to get popular was on the counter next to him.
“It was then that a group of adventurers infamously known for their poor habits with women came. They had just finished work, so they wanted to drink…” [Envious Adventurer 1]
That group saw the group of female adventurers and wanted to mingle.
Although the group of male adventurers had a bad habit with women and liquor, they were stronger than the female adventurers and wouldn’t listen to the receptionist woman when she tried to stop them.
Fei-san couldn’t just watch without doing anything, so he called out to them. Unfortunately, he hurt their and he had to hold them down.
And now, the situation is like this… Hey, Fei-san, what story are you a protagonist in?
“Ah, Boss! Save me! Why are you just standing there watching!?” [Fei]
Ah, he found me.
As for why I was just standing here, it’s because I didn’t understand the situation and didn’t really know whether it would be a good idea to call out in the first place.
I mean… Look at those eyes! Those women are scary! Those are the eyes of a carnivorous predator!
“…Sorry. Please wait a while longer. I have to report the success of my job. Also, I don’t specialize in female relationships, so…” [Ryouma]
“Boss! Boss!” [Fei]
Reporting the completion of a job is absolutely crucial to adventurers.
I’ll come back as soon as I’m done.
So, Fei-san, just wait a little bit longer.
And if possible, please do something about those women by the time I get back!
I quickly walked to the counter.
