I don’t know much about it being a shadow, but I finally got something that I can imagine what it would look like!
It’s just a sword after all.
It may not be that the blade is exposed, but if it is, I might be cut carelessly.
This is dangerous…
“Oh…! Hey, come on…”
I was excited to see what kind of thing would appear, but still took a step further back from before, and when I was waiting like “Fuhihi”, what appeared was a strangely small thing.
I hurriedly ran over to catch it before it hit the floor.
The object that I was able to catch without dropping was a very simple silver ring with a black line in the center, with no engraving or jewels attached.
I wonder what it’s made of?
Will it be silver or platinum?
I don’t know.
Well, it’s made of metal.
Now for the problem.
“…what about the sword?”
What is this? It’s a ring.
That example sentence came to my mind.
Yes, it’s a ring.
It’s a ring you wear on your finger, or you can put it through something and use it as a necklace, but at the very least, it’s not a sword.
“…what about the sword?”
What about the sword?
I was depressed for a while due to the results that are difficult to evaluate, but there are examples of [Hideaway], and these three may have something special about them.
I should think about it positively!
“Do I need to put it on…?”
For starters, I decided to investigate starting from the ring that I know how to use.
Right now, the size of my thumb is just right to wear it, but it’s a bit ugly, so I’ll use my index finger instead although it would not fit tightly.
“It won’t bite me, right…?”
It reminds me a little of Italy’s “Mouth of Truth” so it makes me a little uneasy, but I can’t start anything without putting it on.
I exhaled, regained my composure, and slipped it through my right index finger.
When I passed it through to the base, it shrunk to a size that was just right for my finger.
At the same time, for some reason, the fingernail on which the ring was worn was dyed black as if it had been manicured.
It shouldn’t be cursed, right…?
“Ah, I took it off.”
I thought what if I couldn’t remove it like in games, but that didn’t happen.
When the ring was removed, it returned to its original size, and the blackened nail also returned to its original color.
When I put it on again, it turns black, and when I take it off, it returns to normal.
Is this all there is to it?
I have a feeling there’s something about the black nail…
After observing and poking my nails for a while and putting on and taking off the ring, I noticed that the moment my nails were dyed black, there was a faintly shining line between my nails and the ring.
It’s possible that wearing a ring doesn’t cause something to happen to my body and stain my nail black, but that it’s doing something directly to my nail.
In other words…
When I invoked out loud, my black nail grew to a length of about 20 centimeters.
If I look closely at that state, I can see that this black nail is covered over my own nail.
Although it grows from the base of the nail, it is straight instead of curved along the finger.
I cautiously touched it with my left hand, but it didn’t bend or warp at all.
Even if I press it strongly, my index finger doesn’t feel anything, so it must be something completely different from my own nail.
When I tried to say it out loud, the black nail itself remained, but it returned to its original length in an instant.
“Finally a fantasy…!”
[Hideout] is certainly amazing, but it’s hard to get a fantasy feel for it.
Compared to that, with [Shadow Sword], the size of the ring changes, and the nail grow sharply… it looks so fun…!
I must’ve hit the jackpot!
Come to think of it, I completely forgot about it because I was so excited about the divine coin gacha, but I haven’t eaten yet.
When I looked outside at the monitor, it was already pitch black.
I don’t have a watch, so I don’t know, but I arrived in the city around the evening.
How much have I concentrated?
There are still a lot of things I need to think about, such as confirming the remaining two items and what to do after leaving the church, but I decided to take a bath, have a meal, and take a break.
