Record of Wortenia War - v2-c1

Editor: Thorrium.

Chapter 2 Episode 1
(The despair of those who are being summoned)






The 63rd day, after Ryouma was summoned to another world.

The northern part of the western continent. 

Three travelers proceeded through the Doshu desert where the yellow sand blew violently.
The threes cloaks was stained and scratched slightly, symbolizing the harsh journey they had been through, and their steps were heavy.
"There is an oasis at the end of this sand dune."
 

"That fellow over there, right...?"

 
Ryouma eyes turned toward the sand dune that Laura had pointed out. 
His eyes was filled with a mix of sadness and despair and a little desperate hope. 

                                                                            
"Let's draw the conclusion. I am sorry; however, it is impossible for you to return to your former world. "


Inside a small crowded room, filled with books and parchment that had turned yellow due to age, the manager of the room said such words while sitting in the chair. 

The manager of this room was a lady in her mid-30’s to early 40’s, who wore hemp clothes. 
Her appearance was just, bland, neither beautiful nor ugly. Her eyes and hair was both black, but that was only feature that could characterise her, she was truly bland.
 
However, they were not visiting her, due to her looks, no the real reason they were there, was because she was one of the people with the most knowledge of magic on the western continent 
That is the reason why Ryouma visits her.

The woman was named Anamaria, but she was more commonly known by her nickname, The hermit of Mireish. 


"That is because right now there's no spell for it, right?"

Ryouma looking at her with sneering eyes. 
They had gotten the same response from every magician with a worthwhile reputation, ever since they fled from Sardina and her pursuit. 
However, what she said after that crushed Ryouma.

"No. It's not because there's no spell that you cannot go back. No it’s because the spell is flawed that you can’t return."


"What did you say!"

It was a fit of anger that even the sisters who had been traveling together with him for over sixty days, had never seen. 

During these two months, Ryouma and the sisters had been doing guild work while seeking out several renown magicians, in order for them to find a way to return Ryouma to Earth. 
Of course, he didn’t meet the ones inside the empire, but they would most likely have given him the same answer, as the ones they had visited.
That there's no way for him to return home. 

However they had also said, that there had not been developed any spell that could do it, which had made Ryouma ask them if they could create one or not. 
Sadly everyone had said, that it was impossible for them to do so, but one name had been given to him, one person who might know how to create something as complex as what he wanted. 
Anamaria, The hermit of Mireish.. 

"Calm down. Nothing will change even if you're getting agitated. "


Even when Ryouma showed his anger, Anamaria expression did not change at all. 

Apparently she had been a civil officer in the past, but she was forced to give up her job after having a confrontation with a cabinet minister at the place she worked.

"My bad. It's fine. I've calmed down. Can you explain why I can’t go back?"


He said those words while trying his hardest to hold back the rage inside his heart.


"The reason is obvious. ... But before I'm explaining it to you, I want to ask, how far is your understanding regarding magic?"


"Understanding regarding magic huh? "


All the knowledge about magic, which he had gotten from Sara and Laura came to mind. 


Magical spells needs energy known as Prana. If one wants to use spells, and depending on how they want to use it, there is three systems.


One is to use the Prana residing within one's body. 

As this technique does not require casting, results in it being overwhelming in close combat situations.

Another is incantations. 

This magic art is the kind that borrows power from outside sources, such as God, demons, and spirits. 
Because of the need to cast, it is not suitable for close combat.
However, since one uses the power of non-human beings, they are able to create a phenomenon that cannot be done by humans, such as manipulating the fire and  wind.

And the last one is enchanting, or bestowing magical powers. 

This technique uses Prana on a substance that does not have Prana within it, such as swords or spears. This method will raise the strength of a person who does not have Prana within them. 

With Ryouma explaining what he knew, Anamaria began smiling.


"That's right. You seems to know about the basic, but now I will ask you a question. Do you know which type is the one that's being used to summon people from a different world?"


Ryouma replied Anamaria's question with annoyance.


"The incarnation type!"


Hearing the answer, Anamaria nodded her head.


"Exactly. Now the problem is, whom are we going to borrow the Prana from in another world?. "


"... What do you mean by that? I was summoned to this world. It was the consequence of this world magic that I was brought here! Don’t you just need to pray to the God who has summoned me to this world?"


Ryouma comment was reasonable. 

However, Anamaria expression remained the same.

"You can leave this world. I'm sure of this."


"What’s the problem then!"

Yet, the words that Anamaria responded with knocked Ryouma down to the bottom of despair.



"However, you will end up drifting within the interstices of space-time forever."
