“What are you doing? Give it back to me.”
He gestured, but Rizello stepped back from me with an awkward expression.
“I think so, customer. There seems to be some knowledge in the world that you don’t need to know.”
“Don’t you have something in your head called capacity? You have to fill it with important information.”
What is he saying now?
It was a different reaction from when he persuaded me to go into the restricted library together. It was as if he had become a different person.
I flicked my hand towards Rizello.
“Stop saying strange things and return it.”
“That is…Customer. Wait a minute. Let me read a little first.”
It’s a book I picked, Why do you read it first?
I looked at Rizelo with an absurd face. I was annoyed because I was reading an important part. I don’t have time.
“Come on, give it back. This is not the time to joke around.”
Rizello, however, did not listen to me, but pored his nose into the book and read it intently. He was stunned.
I suddenly thought, “By any chance,” so I opened my mouth.
“Give it back.”
It was a powerful and short command, as I shouted at the clowns and lizards.
Rizello looked at me with his puzzled face.
“… … Did you use the commandment on me right now, customer?”
“It doesn’t work.”
I muttered a small whisper to myself.
But. After all, it’s an ability that the saintess in the legend had, but there’s no way I could have it.
“I am not evil. Customer.”
“It is written here. It is said that the commandment is only effective for ‘evil things’ and ‘things against the will of the God’.”
“Show me where.”
I quickly held out his hand, but Rizello was quicker.
Instead of a book, I only held on to the empty space, and I made a face of resentment.
“Why are you like that? Could it be because of the part that the side effects get worse when you know about the ability?”
If so, that was funny. It’s because Rizello seriously thinks of me as a person with magic powers.
‘……Wait. Come to think of it, Rizello was right next to me during the lizard incident.’
I didn’t see the exact moment the lizard turned as I closed my eyes, but it wasn’t Rizello.
Besides, Rizello was also the Master of the Magic Tower, which was said to be amazing. If he really thinks I’m a saintess, there must be a good reason.
Why am I thinking about it now?
I asked Rizelo, blaming my dullness.
“At that time when the lizard broke down. Master Tower, did you see exactly what happened?”
“Lizard?….Ah, that demon. Hmm, I don’t know. Because I was looking somewhere else at that time, too.”
I glared at Rizelo, who openly shied away from answering.
Ian and Rizello are the same. Why don’t they give me a proper answer?
‘Ian….Okay. Ian was like this, too.’
I nodded my head at the name that suddenly came to my mind.
Ian was like that too. It was clear that he knew something about me, but he seldom explained it.
Did Ian already know?
That I’ve been given the power called commandment.
‘But, no matter how hard it is, it really can’t be.’
To think I have the same abilities as the saintess in the legend.
It was a story that was not easily accepted no matter how good the conditions were.
But if I really think about it, it makes no sense at all.
‘Isn’t it a nonsense story that I fell into this world?’
I have already experienced such unrealistic things. Could there be a more absurd story than waking up and finding myself in the world of books?
‘Even the main characters of other novels usually get some special power when they go to another world, but I didn’t have that.’
Not to mention my power, I fell on the bed of the tiger-like commander of the Holy Knights. If I hadn’t used my mind at the time, I might have died that day. Besides, the body I entered was being threatened by some crime guild guys.
I was in a hurry to adapt to it because it didn’t make sense, but if I look closely, it can’t be this unfair.
‘It’s strange when I think about it. Can I just be this unlucky?’
I was wary when I looked at the book.
Whether my world or in this world, if there really is a God, they won’t bring only bad luck to one person like this. If God had a conscience, wouldn’t they have gifted me a good thing or two?
Perhaps, if I really have the power to commandment. Wouldn’t that be a privilege given to travelers from another world?
‘You have to give me that level of power to pay for it!’
It’s the power to do what you say.
It was true that it was a very visible ability.
“I’ll have to try things out.”
I murmured with eagerness.
I wanted to find out right away if I could really do that.
Didn’t I say that it’s a power that can only be used for the evil? Are any of them around?
“Customer, calm down for a moment.”
Rizello stopped me with his perplexed face.
When I asked him why he didn’t tell me, he gave me a hard look and spoke in my face.
‘If only Ian had known all the contents of this book. … … I wonder if it was for my sake that he didn’t tell me.’
When I think about it, Ian was always with me whenever I used my power.
He knew it.
What’s going on with me?
“Is that why he held me up like I was sick and pushed me until I was almost suffocated by healthy food?”
It was a possibility I had never thought of before.
But when I thought about it, it was like I had found the right piece of the puzzle, and many things made sense.
I let out a dejected laugh.
He also had an easier way.
Just tell me I have that power and tell me not to use it too carelessly. Of course, the side effects will get worse, but it was up to me to handle.
Then you won’t have to deal with me when I want to know everything you know, and you don’t have to be overprotective of me.
Why didn’t Ian choose such an easy way?
A person who pursues only efficiency.
‘As if he had thought of me.’
I blankly blinked.
I knew best that what I just thought didn’t make sense.
Ian’s head is full of revenge now, and he has no room in his mind for someone he’s only known for a few months.
It was when I was lost in such thoughts.
Rizello suddenly stiffened his face and said.
“I think I should leave now.”
“Someone is coming up.”
I looked around in shock.
If someone found out I was alone in a place like this without permission and even with a man outside, it would be a big deal.
“Le-let’s get out quickly. hurry!”
“You can go out slowly from now on. I’ve just entered the library entrance.”
“How can you…… Did you plant a magic device at the entrance?”
Rizello shrugged his shoulders with a puzzled expression. It would be illegal to plant magic devices anywhere, but he was shameless.
Of course, I’m glad you did it now.
“Let’s go out quietly.”
Rizello and I went back to the bookshelves that we had been sneaking around in.
As soon as the bookshelves came out, the bricks started to get tangled up again. Before ten seconds had passed, the brown wall fully blocked the bookshelf on the other side of the wall, making it invisible.
I could hear Annette’s voice in the distance.
I stopped breathing and looked back at Rizelo. He winked and hid behind the opposite bookshelf.
“Saintess Irene, are you here?”
Annette’s voice got closer little by little.
I quickly stepped out of the bookshelf and waved my hand.
“Oh, there you are!”
Annette turned pale and waved her arms loudly.
“There’s something going on right now. I came running to tell you because I thought Saintess Irene would want to see it.”
“What do you mean?”
Annette took a quick breath as if she had just been running. She said with her eyes shining.
“Sir Ian and ‘that boy’ are going to have a sparring match!”
Who is fighting who?
Ian and Elliot?
The original protagonist and future final boss?
Oh, my God. I shut my mouth.
This is a scene I can’t miss.
“Let’s move fast. How should I get there?”
“I’ll show you the way! Come with me!”
Annette smiled broadly as if she knew I would react like this.
I went after Annette and looked back once.
I could feel Rizello’s eyes on me from behind the shelves.
“Commander Ian is sparring with a kid who isn’t even an apprentice yet?”
“Isn’t that a lie? Who’s so lucky?”
Soon after arriving at the training field, there were already clouds of people there.
“Get out of the way, get out of the way!”
Annette exclaimed cheerfully as she squeezed through the crowd.
The people who turned around at the bold shout found us and backed away.
“The commander is over there! Saintess!”
“Guide the saintess!”
The onlookers went one step further and escorted Annette to a special seat in the front row.
Thanks to that, I was able to break through the crowd and get to the front. As soon as I could see the field clearly, I looked around.
‘Ah. There he is.’
Finding the person you were looking for wasn’t difficult. Because he is the kind of person who draws attention wherever he goes, even at a glance.
The moment I found his silver hair shining like platinum, I smiled faintly without knowing it.
