“The range of subjects is also limited.”
“Indeed, can only move back in time locally from its origin. The time limit is probably limited to 100 years. With , the time that can be traced back is even shorter. With only my own magical power, that is.”
A magic circle of is depicted in the treasury. Using＜Demon King Army Gyze>, I connected the magic line to everyone’s source.
“Are we using our magic power as well?”
I nod in reply to Misha’s question.
“If we can muster the magical power of all of us, I can travel even further back in time than 100 years.”
“Even if we combined the power of the Spirit God Human Sword Evansmana, I doubt you could still reach 2,000 years ago, though, right?”
“Oh, that’s not enough.”
Taking a loose step forward, I mutter, “Show yourself”. It is as though a veil of magic is being peeled away to expose a collection of magical items that have been stored in the treasury.
When I beckoned with my fingertips, one of the magic tools flew into my hand.
It is a scythe, resembling a spear.
“Let’s use this one.”
Misha blinked her eyes.
It has been in my possession since I vanquished Eugo La Raviaz, the Guardian God of Time.
“This is a time manipulating magical tool of the God of Time. By merging our magical power with the power of this scythe, I might just barely be able to fly back 2,000 years.”
“Then, if you could return to 2,000 years ago, why don’t you simply alter the past there?”
I shook my head at Eleonore’s words.
“Unfortunately, changing the past is no easy feat. When there is a significant difference between the past and the present, the past will not be altered.
Avos Dilhevia rumours are far too widespread. Pretending he was never born would be impossible, even if it was 2,000 years ago.”
Then Misha shot me a look.
“You’re just going to have a look?”
“Oh. I’m heading back 2,000 years to determine what became of Misa, Shin, and Reno. That’s about as far as I can go.”
“… Um, I…”
Lina said fearfully.
“Can I go too…?”
She was reserved yet unequivocal.
“… Things in Dilhade are a mess, and I’m sure I’m a mere outsider who can’t help in any way, but…”
Her pleading gaze fell on me.
“… But I have a feeling that there… are things out there that I’ve forgotten… two thousand years ago.”
For some reason, after Avos Dilhevia awakened, Titi and the others who were supposed to obey her, Reno’s own child, sided only with Lina.
It cannot be assumed that they did it simply on a whim.
“Don’t worry. We will all travel to the past together.”
Lina let out a laugh as if she were relieved.
With my hand raised, I send magic power to the magic circle of the .
After Lay draws the magic circle, he pulls out the Spirit God Human Sword Evansmana from it. The sword was thrust into the center of the magic circle that had been drawn.
The vast amount of magic power from the holy sword, which severs even the predestined fate, is channelled into the .
Zeshia withdrew the Holy Sword of Light Enhale, and plunged it into the center of the Spirit God Human Sword as if it were superimposed on it. Her magic power is likewise infused into that magic circle.
Magical letters emerged around Eleonore.
They float in midair and begin to drift around her as if tracing a spherical line.
When holy water appears to overflow from the magical letters, it transforms into a sphere of water and covers Eleonore.
Employing the magic of the , she wraps herself in the . Her feelings are converted into magical power.
“The magic line is connected. Collect the thoughts of Zeshia and the others in the basement.”
As Eleonore shuts her eyes, the thoughts of the 10,000 Zeshia in the underground city are transmitted to her as well.
These were converted into the magical power of the and directed into the .
Misha and Sasha joined their hands and used fusion magic to multiply each other’s magic power and send it to the magic circle.
“After all, this was your first attempt. If you inadvertently slip into a different time period, just wait until time returns to normal.”
“Please don’t say such terrifying things…”
These contrasting words spill out from Sasha and Misha’s mouths.
I apply magic to the and exert myself to dominate it through sheer force. Swinging it with a silvery white light, I slashed through the magic circle of the .
The entire room has been transformed into a silvery-white world.
It was as if the curtain of this world had been cut, forming a rift in the space where the scythe had been wielded.
The world has been turned inside out, as if everything is backwards, with various landscapes dyed in silvery white flashing before our eyes.
The time, it was flowing backward――
