「 I can't find any concrete treatment, but it would be very bad to leave it like that in the meantime. I'm afraid we're going to have to perform a treatment. 」

「 Treatment? 」

The word ‘treatment’ may not sound like much.

I don't see anything wrong with her body at the moment, and she doesn't have any problems in her personal life.

However, Lady Sion's illness is progressing rapidly. If left untreated, it could lead to serious complications later on, so I think we should at least try to finish some treatment here right now.

「 I'm not going to do anything extensive when I say treatment. It's so simple that even calling it a treatment is an exaggeration. 」

「 ... Does it hurt? 」

She looked up anxiously at me.

Haha, it seems she's still a kid who's afraid of pain.

「 It's fine. It's not painful. It's just that you might feel a little light-headed. After all, you will be forcibly expelling the accumulated useless magic power inside your body. 」

「 Expelling useless magic power? 」

「 Yes. Lady Sion's Body is currently in a state where it is unable to fully release excess magic power. Even though the ability to generate magic power is low, it still generates and accumulates. If you leave it in this state, you'll end up in a situation where the magical power that has accumulated inside your body is too large and you won't be able to recover. 」

「 Oh...... 」

The magic power in the body would explode out of control.

Perhaps this reminded him that Lady Sion was pale and trembling.

There are many cases where this happens. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing. The magic power generated in the body is unable to be released, and when the body is unable to release it, the person's body explodes... It's the same principle as a balloon with too much air. If the capacity exceeds the limit, it will burst.

「 This feels really good... 」

「 Are you starting to feel more and more comfortable? With the amount of magic in Lady Sion's body... Yes, let's stay like this for about 5 minutes. 」

「 Yes. What are you doing? 」

Being asked in a relaxed tone of voice, I put my other free hand around the purple light and let it slightly discharged.

I could hear the sound of the air up close, and it probably sounded pretty loud.

Seeing this, Lady Sion's expression tensed and she inquires as to what it is.

「 Thunder? 」

「 Yes. But it's not so high-powered that it can injure people. It's a very weak light that can relieve accumulated fatigue and improve blood flow. The magic power stored in Lady Sion's body is now gradually being released. Can you feel how your body is getting warm? 」

「 It feels so good. I want to fall asleep like this... 」

She really looks like she's comfortable.

By the way, as far as I know, I'm the only one who can perform this treatment. In the first place, it is difficult to trigger such a weak lightning, and in addition, it is extremely difficult to maintain it for an extended period of time. It requires a considerable amount of magic control, so it's not something that just anyone can do.

The reason why I have my hand on her back is because if I place the purple light right above her heart, the electricity will flow through her entire body along with her bloodstream, which will reduce her fatigue and improve the efficiency of her magic power release.

I can't touch her chest after all.

I had nothing to do during the treatment, so I chatted with Lady Sion.

「 I'm sure you know that the grimoire you're planning to sign is a grimoire of a higher rank. 」 「 You're correct. I believe it was a higher rank than my father's. 」

「 So... would it be the Wisdom Book Cherubim? That's amazing... 」

[TL: ngl no idea what this means... Raw]

The dukes are the epitome of nobility. I mean, they've got such a valuable and powerful spell book.

The number of the Top Three Books is extremely reduced compared to the number of the lower than the top three books, and if it is a Chitensho book, there will be less than a hundred books in the world.

When Lady Sion makes a contract with that grimoire and learns and develops her magic, she will become a tremendous mage.

As a member of the ducal family, I'm sure she' s going to display tremendous power.

If we don't cure her of this disease, it will be a loss not only for her individually, but also for the entire kingdom.

It's a lot of pressure, but it's for Lady Sion's sake.

「 You must definitely cure this disease and get you to sign a contract with the Chitensho spell book for the duke who has prepared it for you. 」

「 Yes! 」

That's the spirit.

But I'm the one who has to do their best. So far, I haven't even grasped any of the clues at all, and I don't know how long until a solution is found.

No, I have to cure her as soon as possible. It's spring break now, so she won't have school for another month or so. I have to finish before then, I guess.

「 Hey, Mr. Serel... 」

「 Oh, I'm sorry, that was a little too strong. 」

I was thinking about something else, so the electricity might have been a little strong.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Watch out, watch out. It's dangerous to disrupt her concentration just because she's used to it.

「 This feels really good... If you opened a massage shop, it would be very successful. 」

「 No, I wouldn't.... I like my job as a librarian, so I won't do such a tiresome job. Just don't spread the word that I can do this, okay? 」

「 What? What do can you... Oh, right. I understand. 」

If people find out about it, they might ask me to do it for them.

Since the librarian work is too busy, there is no time for that. This time, Lady Sion's treatment was requested by the Duke, so I have no choice.

And then.

「 Hmm? 」

I felt that the electric current that should have spread throughout Lady Sion's body had stopped for a split second.

It was as if I hit some kind of obstacle.

Yes, right around the collarbone with that bruise.

「 ...Was it my imagination? No... 」

The electricity is running fine now, but I was definitely feeling a bit uncomfortable just now.

I know that I would regret it later if I dismissed such doubts as just my imagination. So, I won't ignore it.

Without stopping the current flowing to Lady Sion, I can strengthen the power a little bit just where the bruise was — huh!?

「 It bounced off?! 」

The moment the current passed the bruise, it seemed to have been forcibly rejected and broken down into magic power.

It's not just a bruise, is it?

Messing around with the magic, I think, it might contain magic power.

No, but it's still a great chance to practice some magic...

「 I'm beginning to understand a lot of things... 」

「 What's the matter? 」

「 No, it's nothing. Well, that's the end of the treatment, isn't it? 」

With a large smile, I let go of her back and destroy the Thunder Magic I had invoked, so as not to make her anxious.

When she stood up, she rolled her shoulders and jumped on the spot, shouting with joy at her body that was no longer fatigued.

「 Oh, my God! My body feels so light! 」

「 That's good. But don't be too careless, okay? 」

「 Yes! Thank you very much! 」

When I see her looking so joyous, it makes me feel at ease too.

She had a similar reaction when I gave this to her Highness the Selfish Princess. That time, she jumped on me in a fit of excitement, but Lady Sion doesn't appear to be that prudish.

「 Well, I'm still going to do some research, but what about you? I have plenty of books, so I'm sure I won't be bored. 」

「 Oh, I have a little favor to ask you. 」

「 What is it? 」

As I tilted my head, Lady Sion took out a book of questions from her handbag. It is written in the letters of the magic foundation.

「 It's my homework for spring break, and there's something I don't understand. If it's not too much trouble, could you help me? 」

「 It's okay. I'm used to teaching, so please feel free to ask me anything. 」

「 Thank you! 」

Lady Sion replied happily.

I finished the day by teaching her how to answer various questions while I was researching.
