The Book Fairy [Part 1]
Rina made her way through the maze of the Spirit School building without hesitation.
After that, she suddenly ran out and told us to follow her.
It seems that this spirit school was still etched in her memories that she remembered from .
We followed Rina as she ran ahead of us.
“Where are we going?”
“There’s a good place for us to study about spirits. Maybe the Four Evil Kings haven’t found that place either.”
I saw a three-way street in front of me.
With a gait like she had been there before, Rina turned to the right there.
There, she stopped dead in her tracks.
She waited for a while, but did not start to move.
Rina’s eyes were fixed on a stone statue in the passage.
It was a humanoid frog wearing armor. The lower half of the shield in his hand was completely cut off.
She muttered and reached for the severed shield.
Then she gently placed her fingertips against it.
“Do you remember anything?”
I asked, but she slowly shook her head from side to side.
“…Hmm. I can’t remember anything…”
She muttered, then stared at the stone shield again.
“But there’s something about it that makes me feel nostalgic. I’ve probably been here before. I should have done something here…”
Rina pondered, as if diving deep, really deep into the depths of her memory.
Since she knew about the Spirit School, it was only natural that she had been here before.
It was possible that touching something so memorable would bring back her memories.
Normally, that would be the case.
Her memories didn’t come back that easily.
“…No good. I still can’t remember anything…”
Rina said and started walking again.
“I’m sorry. We don’t have much time. Let’s go.”
I called out to the girl who was walking ahead of me with a cheerful look.
“Don’t be in a hurry. If it were that easy to recall your memories, would have restored your lost memories by now.”
“…If I can’t remember with that magic, what kind of situation is this?”
Rina asked as she continued onward.
“That could be when the memory is completely lost, or if there was a spell that was cast to seal the memory.”
Or maybe she didn’t have any memories to begin with.
After a moment of silence, Rina continued.
“Which do you think it was?”
“Looking at you with my evil eye, it doesn’t look like you’re under a spell that seals your memories.”
“…So, is it completely gone?”
Rina said dejectedly.
“Even if that’s the case, there’s probably a way to recover your memories.”
Rina spun around and looked at me.
“If I can find out who you really are, I can use the magic of to pull your memories out of your past.”
“…But I don’t know who I am…”
“There must be someone who recognizes you. We can ask that person.”
“You mean the Spirit King…?”
“If we are going to meet, then it must be someone we know. If I can get him to tell me about you, I can use ”
“I see. Then I need to pass the Spirit Trials…”
She muttered with an anxious look on her face.
“What, I just happen to have a lot of questions for the Spirit King too. Even if you don’t pass, I’ll ask him for you.”
Rina’s expression then brightened up.
“Thanks. I knew you were a good person, Anos. I wasn’t wrong about you.”
For a moment, I was at a loss for words.
It was a strange statement to make.
“…Hmm. Why do you say that? Are you referring to the time we met in the capital of Zeichenburg?”
“…Huh? That’s strange, isn’t it? I kind of had a feeling that…”
Rina looked down for a moment, then looked up as if something had occurred to her.
“I think I’ve met you before.”
If it was a spirit from two thousand years ago, there was a possibility.
After getting Reno’s cooperation, I would have to be involved with the spirits.
“Can you remove that Hood?”
Rina turned around, looking around for something.
“What’s wrong with my Hood?”
I use to make a mirror for her.
Rina looks into the mirror.
But there was no reflection of her.
“Hmm. I see.”
When she used her magic eye, she couldn’t see the face in the hood.
However, it was not some kind of magic tool.
“There must be some kind of spirit power at work here. It may be the reason why you can’t see your face.”
“… So, the reason I can’ t remember anything is?”
“It could be the work of a spirit. Or…”
I stared at Rina as I continued.
“Do you know that you are a spirit?”
