The Tutorial Is Too Hard Chapter 205 part1
The morning was ending so we left the accommodation.
I left the village and entered a lush forest.
It seemed that the villagers never came to the lake, there wasn’t even a small path here.
Although this path was a bit strenuous for magicians who have little strength, Sicia and Yata kept up with my pace.
“This is prejudice. Don’t assume all magicians have low stamina.”
“Really? You seem weak to me.”
“Even with spells and techniques, a magician’s body is an important part of magic casting. If magicians don’t exercise, they wouldn’t be able to use any advanced magic because they will burst.”
In other words, Sicia and Yata, as magicians who signed contracts with Gods, couldn’t be physically weak.
The only particularly weak magician I met was the one on the 16th floor.
She was always sickly and weak, since then I began to have a prejudice against the magician.
Thinking carefully, the magician didn’t look very weak when I knocked her out.
When the sun was about to set, we arrived at the lake.
This lake was pretty big.
I imagined that the lake would be big when I saw the map, but I didn’t expect it to be this huge.
Looking at the boundary of the lake in the distance, I couldn’t tell whether it was a lake or a sea.
Sicia and Yata weren’t surprised by the scenery of the lake. They began to draw a magic circle on the ground as soon as we arrived.
I asked if they needed my help, but they replied that there was nothing I could do so they told me to leave them.
But I didn’t leave. I walked around them and studied how they drew the magic circle.
I couldn’t understand what they were doing, but I intended to memorize the whole process.
“If you are curious, I could tell you later. So don’t bother us and stay away.”
Finally, I was driven away.
She said she could tell me later, so it was okay to be driven away.
But I really had nothing to do in the meantime.
The tent was set up and we would eat the food we brought from the village in the evening, so I didn’t have to find food either.
I wanted to explore the area, but there was nothing dangerous in the peaceful and quiet forest.
I didn’t find anything strange within the range of my mana and I thought there was no need to investigate the forest.
As a result, I was determined to look under the surface of the lake.
Walking to the lake, I saw ripples of water.
I put my foot on the surface of the water and focused on it for a moment.
I moved my other foot from the ground and onto the surface of the lake, but then my body shook violently.
It would be much easier with bare feet, but I wore shoes with thick soles. So it wasn’t easy to control my mana.
I wobbled for a while before gradually stabilizing my center of gravity.
When I was familiar with this, I took a step forward.
Walking on the surface of the lake reminded me of an anime I watched before.[No matter how peaceful the lake is, this is not something that can be easily learned in such a short time. By the way, what’s Naruto?]
“… You don’t have to know.”
This kind of thing often happened recently.
Maybe it was because I use not only the voice but also telepathy to communicate with Ahbooboo, sometimes he could hear my thoughts.
I don’t know if it was because I am too familiar with telepathy causing me to make mistakes or if there is something else that caused this.
I couldn’t put my mind around this, but this time I felt a little uneasy.
It would be better to ask KiriKiri about this after clearing this floor.
When the figures of Sicia and Yata drawing the magic circle in the lakeside was becoming small, I was so far away from them that I could no longer see the bottom of the lake.
How deep would it be?
I jumped from the surface of the lake while thinking this.
And I dove into the lake.
I put my head down and my feet up so let my feet could touch the surface of the water using my mana.
Unlike standing on the water, my feet were now in contact with the underside of the water surface, like a bat hanging upside down.[… You are so wasteful. You don’t have to use magic for that, just abandon studying magic and use me.]
Voiced Ahbooboo who was afraid of his position would be threatened if I continued to learn magic.
But I won’t ignore magic.
Although I could use other techniques in place of magic, there were things I couldn’t do without magic.
For example, Sicia and Yata could draw a teleportation circle, but I couldn’t.
I walked on the underside surface of the lake and looked around the lake.
I searched the water with my eyes and mana, but nothing strange was found.
It seemed like an ordinary beautiful lake.
I was engrossed in the underwater scenes and forgot to find abnormal phenomenon.
With this method, I walked underwater. After a while, I felt that I was out of the air so I resurfaced.
My body, hair, and clothes weren’t wet. I guess it was because I was covered myself with mana.
I shook off some lingering water on my clothes and returned to the dry state just like before.
Perfect waterproofing.[… If you are still human, please stop learning the magic. Don’t you feel sorry for the other magicians in the world? This is unfair for them.]
Why I should feel sorry?
I ignored Ahbooboo’s words and walked towards the tent where Sicia and Yata are.
When I neared the lakeside, I found that Sicia and Yata were staring at me.
I didn’t know why they reacted like that, so I moved quicker.
“Yes? What is it?”
As soon as I got to land, Sicia grabbed my hand.
I was surprised by this sudden contact.
“Please take me as your disciple.”
Why did she suddenly request that?
Yata, who was beside Sicia, seemed to have seen something miraculous because her eyes were twinkling.
Maybe it was because I could walk on the water surface.
“That technique just now is not magic.”
“Even if it’s not magic, I still want you to teach me it!”
Probably because she was too excited, Sicia shouted.
It would not be hard to teach her this.
Since she is a magician, she must know more about handling mana than me.
It would be easy for her to learn it if I enlightened her a little.
“Okay, in return you will teach me magic.”
Muddleheaded I had one disciple.
