School and measurement.
Magical power is measured by pouring magical power into a specially-made crystal. The color it shines it with is the attribute. The brightness is the amount of magical power.
“Please pour your magical power into the crystal. Try pouring your magical power in its entirety.”
I poured my magical power just as I was told. The crystal was shining blindingly bright with many colors until it made some unpleasant noises. I feel like it got cracked.
“… That’s enough.”
It must be just my imagination. Teacher’s face has cramped. Aldin-sama was next after me.
The crystal shined in dazzling gold and broke. When I tried to withdraw in secret, I was captured by Miss Milfilia.
“Umm, this is just my personal opinion, but I suspect that the crystal got cracked when Miss Rosarin poured her magical power into it.”
Aldin-sama stared at me. I averted my gaze.
“Can’t you fix this?”
Hal took the fragmented crystal in his hands and replied after thinking.
“Haku would be more competent than me. It’s made out of Earth attribute mineral. I might be able to fix it if I do my best, but to be honest, I am bad with this kind of stuff.”
“Got it. Thank you, Hal.”
See ya then, Hal vanished.
“Yess. What’s the matterr, Rosarin-chan.”
“Can you fix this?”
“Nn? I don’t know its original shapee, so it’s original shape wouldn’t be possible, but I can fix itt. This is a magic tool for the measurement of magical power, rightt?”
“Would that be okay? Teacher?”
Confirming that teacher has approved, I asked Haku to fix it.
“Then, please fix it.”
Simultaneously with soft light, the large lump of crystal fragments turned into a palm-sized sphere.
“Its effect has not changedd. I have increased the capacity of magical power it can take too, but it will break again if you get seriouss, so please be careful, Rosarin-chan.”
“I will be returning back to work thenn. Right noww, I am planting new kind of tomatoes with Ru-kun. I will make sure to give them to you as well if they turn out tastyy, Rosarin-chan.”
Elder brother has been influenced by Gator, so he made a kitchen garden… no, the scale is different. It’s a plantation fitted inside the house. Elder brother’s Revelation – Green Thumb gets fully displayed as every vegetable he grows is delicious. Even Mother who hates veggies eats salads enthusiastically.
That very Elder brother of mine has recently started selective breeding. He started growing crops that are pest-resistant and crops that can be planted on barren land. Haku has been recently helping him of his own initiative.
“I look forward to it.”
See you later, Haku returned with those words. H, huh? Ain’t there too many gazes gathered on me?
“… Please come with me to the staff room.”
I was taken to the staff room by a different teacher. This should be lecturing… isn’t it? Since I broke something, it wouldn’t end just with putting it back together, right? I feel sick.
When we arrived at the staff room, the teacher’s eyes were sparkling. This tall and slender male teacher should be a lecturer of Magic-ology if I remember correctly.
“Do you possess several spirit protections?”
The teacher couldn’t conceal his excitement. I feel something troublesome coming. This is far from lecturing, this fellow just has interest in me, probably.
“… That’s correct.”
As I have called out Hal and Haku, I couldn’t lie there so I replied honestly.
“What are their attributes?”
“Wind and Earth.”
Teacher stiffened. I just spoke truthfully, though? The teacher couldn’t hold back his excitement as protections of opposite elements usually don’t join together. He enthusiastically spoke about my excellent amount of magical power and my attributes during the measurement and that I should join the Magic Institution. However, tough luck.
“I have no interest. I have received magic guidance from Sage-sama. This country can’t offer more than him, no?”
Shit. That was an unnecessary remark. Teacher’s eyes sparkled even more. Won’t beams come out soon… The teacher told me that he would love to receive guidance too, but to be frank, I can’t think of anyone else that could withstand Grandpa’s guidance.
I don’t feel like that’s possible. He told me to learn the basics from a book, after all…
It took quite a lot of labor to calm down the teacher and the next day, I was asked by the headmaster whether I don’t want to join the Magic Institute.
I told you that I won’t be going there for now. I resolutely declined.
