Looks like no one wants the LN version. Oh well.
BTW this chapter is surprisingly bland, MC does something others get surprised, it’s the same till the end.
Chapter 11: Holder of Destiny.
“…That’s right, the damage to the city is– eh?”
Oscar was relieved, but he looked around him and was again exclaimed.
There was no damage to the city from the water column that he had probably expected to see.
A water column that shot out like a beam and blew something out of the grimoire, it didn’t cause any damage to the city.
Both the sellers and buyers on Cobalt Street were surprised that it happened so suddenly, but there was no damage to humans, buildings, or antiques.
He looked at the water column flying off into the sky, and then at me.
“No way … Noah did you.”
“Yeah, look here.”
I extended my index finger and showed him a trajectory that extended upward at an angle.
I’m six years old, holding a book, and my gaze is downward.
Typically, the water column would be horizontal or diagonally down.
And that would probably take the lives of dozens of people, just like the big hole in the garden before.
So I took the plunge and shot from the bottom up.
The water column I launched at an angle only blew away the grudge spirit of the grimoire and flew away into the sky without causing any other damage.
”You mean you shot upwards in that split second?”
“What an ability to assess the situation…”
Oscar was exclaiming, but he soon returned to his usual smile.
“No, that’s our father’s son. That’s my brother.”
He was in a good mood and complimented me.
We didn’t explain anything and nothing was done to cause any damage.
Cobalt Street rapidly returned to normal, as if nothing had happened.
But it’s not as if everyone is completely unconcerned about what just happened.
“Excuse me, may I have a moment?”
A man calls out to me and Oscar from the side.
He’s a well-dressed, little fat guy with a little beard.
“And you are?”
“I’m the owner of that shop. I saw what you just did. I’d like you to have a look at something.”
“Do you have any special treasures?”
“Something like that, sir.”
The man lowered his head.
Something like that, huh?
Although it’s something that doesn’t quite boil over.
“Okay, show us the way.”
Oscar was on board, so I decided to go along for the ride.
I followed the guy into the store and was ushered further into the back of the store.
Me and Oscar followed without hesitation.
When you are a nobleman, you don’t do your shopping in front of a store.
Especially in a store that deals in expensive antiques like this, it’s natural to be shown to a VIP room in the back of the store.
The same is true this time, and we were shown into a room with decent furnishings.
“Please wait a moment.”
The man said and left the room, leaving us alone.
I looked around the room and muttered, “Heh.”
“What’s up Noah?”
“No, I just thought he was good at it. This room is deliberately set one rank lower than the class of a nobleman’s house. This room is a great example of “the best hospitality a commoner can offer.”.”
“What? Can you figure that out already?”
Oscar was surprised.
“Wow, that’ s amazing … I didn’t figure that out until I was twelve years old.”
This time Oscar seemed impressed.
As it was, I sat on the couch with Oscar and waited for the man to come back.
A few minutes later, the guy came back with a jewelry box.
As soon as he entered the room, he got down on one knee to me and Oscar.
“I apologize for the delay in my greeting. I am Alan Bardsley. I would like to offer my greetings to His Royal Highness the Prince.”
Oscar nods as if it’s obvious.
Although we didn’t tell him our names, as evidenced by the fact that he led us to this room, the other side knows about us.
Then it is the etiquette of a nobleman not to tell his or her name at a time like this.
Originally, a nobleman is supposed to act as if the other party knows about you.
I didn’t even try to rush him.
I kept quiet and waited for him to start the conversation.
Alan looks up, down on one knee, at us.
“I have seen what you just did. I am simply in awe of Your Highness the Thirteenth’s great power.”
“It’s no big deal. It’s just that I brought this thing on myself in the first place. I just did what I had to do to keep my people out of trouble.”
As I replied, I saw Oscar’s smile with a satisfied look on his face.
“Oh, what a big-hearted man you are! I’m sure you will be able to solve the mystery of this.”
I exchanged glances with Oscar.
Apparently, I was the one who was invited, not Oscar.
When he got down to business, Alan opened a jewelry box and presented it to me with a gesture of offering.
“This is our most prized possession.”
“What’s it all about?”
“I don’t know.”
Alan said flatly.
It was the first time a merchant had ever said ‘I don’t know’ about his merchandise, and it felt contrived and funny.
” The ring will show its true form when its true owner appears. That is all that I know.”
“A true owner.”
“Yes. I’ve shown it to many people in different ways, but I’ve never shown it to them in its true form.”
“You saw what I did just now, so you want to give it a try?
“I humbly beg your pardon, sir.”
Alan bowed his head as he held out the jewelry box.
“You can try it, but what I’m more concerned about is why do you keep this all the time? What’s the value of the product to you? You don’t know anything. So why did you keep it?”
“If I throw it away or sell it for a throwaway price, it comes back to me.”
“It comes back to you?”
“Yes, before I knew it, it was here on its own. So, even though I don’t know anything about the details, I just know that ‘something’s up’…”
Then you’d certainly think so.
“Come now. Noah, try it on.”
Oscar, who had been quietly listening to me until then, flippantly offered me the ring.
To be honest, I didn’t care about it until just before, but when I heard that it would come back to me if I threw it away, I suddenly became interested.
I took the ring and put it on my thumb like a matter of course.
I look at it neatly stuck in my thumb and wonder what it is.
(Level limit check…….rarity SSS)
“What? What’s that voice?”
( New ownership confirmed and now authorizing– armorization initiate)
After a voice that sounded like void speech, something “blew” out of the ring all at once.
It wrapped around my body, and in the blink of an eye, it turned into knightly armor.
“My God, that’s…”
Oscar marveled, and Alan exclaimed.
I looked at myself.
I saw myself, using the window pane as a mirror.
I was clothed in white armor, and strangely enough, it seemed to fit my own eyes as well.
By the way, there is no change in status.
Probably a similar existence to Leviathan.
“Alan, I’ll take this.”
“Yes! I’d be happy to oblige.”
“You’ll get your payment delivered later.”
“No, let me pay for this one.”
Oscar took out the ten thousand reens he had brought with him and handed them to Alan.
“It’s my gift to you. After the Demon Sword, this armor as well? Hmmm, Noah is indeed something different.”
Oscar was really smiling happily, and he looked at me in the armor with narrowed eyes.
The armor of the ring can be taken in and out at will.
If it is damaged, it can repair itself over time if the ring itself is safe.
I listened to those things with the same linked thoughts as Leviathan, and told Oscar on the carriage on the way home.
“Isn’t that amazing? I’ve never heard of that before.”
“It really is something.”
“But, well, it’s Cobalt Street. Maybe it’s not surprising what treasures they’ve found.”
So that’s what the city is like there.
“Anyway, it’s been a great experience. Next time let’s have our audience together and let His Majesty take a look at it.
In the meantime, we returned to my mansion, the Thirteenth Prince’s Mansion.
I jumped off the carriage and said goodbye to Oscar.
Suddenly, something attacked me from behind with an angry shout.
” Watch out!”
Oscar’s expression changed and he shouted–Gakin!
Something bounced off of me.
Something came out of the back of my head and bounced the attack right back.
As I was pulling away, the frightened assailant was subdued by Oscar’s men.
But Oscar didn’t care about that.
“A shield? Where the hell did it come from?”
He was more concerned about the shield that appeared in the back of my head and bounced off the assault.
“I linked the ring to the Leviathan.”
“A what now?”
Oscar is more and more surprised.
“Leviathan is sensitive to hostility towards me, so I thought it would be a good idea to link them together – but it worked as an automatic defense.”
“You already know how to use it! Amazing…..”
Oscar marveled again.
I hope this series is better than this.
