Chapter 69 – Forecast of the Future
Beside Nadia who was excited, I read the Grimoire that was found through treasure hunting.
It’s an SF-tic manga. A story about the protagonist that can hear his future self’s voice one-sidedly, and using that as a prediction ability.
*Patan*, I closed the Grimoire.
「You read it?」
「What kind of magic is it?」
「It’s probably better if you just look at it actually. 『Foresee』」
I chanted the magic.
A video was shown in front of us.
A video where, did Sylvia tripped, and her skirt flipped up and her panty could be seen.
「Lucio-kun no ecchi!」
Nadia slapped my back.
「What’s this, why is it Sylvie’s panty?」
「No, this is」
I panicked, Nadia was unusually angry.
How should I make an excusーーexplain it to her, and when I was wondering about that.
「If you want to see something like this, shouldn’t you just tell Sylvie. For you to look at a fake one using magic, I feel bad for Sylvie!」
「You mean it like that!?」
I couldn’t imagine that at all.
If you’re going to look, look at the real one, it feels bad for the real person if you look at something made with magic.
I couldn’t think of that.
「No, it’s not like that, this isーー」
Sylvia came out from the mansion.
While wiping her hands on the apron she’s wearing, she came in a hurry with a jog.
And suddenly, she stepped on her long skirtーーand tripped.
Dongaragasshon! She tripped so well that it seemed like there was a sound effect like that.
And with that, her skirt flipped, and her panty could be seen.
It’s exactly the same as the video just earlier.
「Sylvie, are you okay?」
「Ouch〜, I-I’m okay」
「Ohh, be careful alright. You shouldn’t run in the garden you know」
No, she can run in the garden right.
I mean, Nadia didn’t notice that. The fact that what happened to Sylvia was exactly the same as the video earlier.
Ancient magic, prediction ability.
When I cast the magic, it looks like it can show just a little bit in the future.
I think that『Time Shift』is stronger, but as long as this is an ancient magic, there is probably a difference.
When I was thinking deeply, Sylvia came to my side.
For some reason, her face was red.
「What happened, Sylvia」
「U-Uhmm……I heard from Nadia-chan」
I looked at Nadia who’s behind Sylvia. She made a gesture “Ike, ike, go〜 go〜”. (TL: ike means go, go is said in english)
What is it?
I looked at Sylvia once again.
She reddened more and more, and started trembling.
She called out, and raised her skirt up.
I saw the panty I saw earlier.
「W-Wait a minute, Sylvia! What are you doing」
「N-Nadia-chan said. Lucio-sama was so lonely that you looked at my panty using magic, she said」
「Da〜! That is wrong!」
「I-Is it wrong? But, she said, you saw my panty using magic」
「That is a prediction magic! Sylvia tripped earlier right? That was just predicted, and I just saw your panty on the side of that!」
「W-Was that so」
Sylvia was relieved, and looked at Nadia with reproaching eyes.
Nadia approached like “What, what, what is it”, and was *PokaPoka* punched by her best friend Sylvia.
After a while, the two calmed down.
I also explained about the magic to Nadia, and made her convinced.
「I see, it was like that huh〜. Un, it’s true that it’s the same panties」
「Please say that it’s the same posture」
「Ne〜ne〜, Lucio-kun, can you only see a little bit ahead with that?」
「I wonder. Let me try」
I invoked, and used『Foresee』once again.
A video appeared, a video of a skeleton inside a coffin.
「What’s this, what’s this」
Sylvia raised a scream, and Nadia focused on it joyfully.
「E〜to……ahh, it’s me three hundred years later」
It’s me who used magic, so I somehow understand.
「Eh〜, Lucio-kun is dead?」
「Nadia-chan, well, he would probably die, it’s three hundred years later you know」
「I see. Somehow, I felt that if it’s Lucio-kun, he would live at least 300 years」
「I’m a human, so let me die around a hundred years」
「It’s too far in the future it’s so boring, can’t you do something else?」
「I’ll try to adjust it……『Foresee』」
A fine old gentleman with gray hair and beard was shown.
He let his cloak flutter and led an army. He is very majestic, and he looks so cool even with my eyes.
「What the heck is this」
Sylvia and Nadia stared at it intently.
I also thought, I somehow understandーー.
「Un, it’s Lucio-kun」
「……how did you guess」
That’s right, that’s me in the future.
It’s me around 60 years old, I don’t know what I’m doing though.
「How amazing, Lucio-kun so cool」
「This Lucio-sama is also wonderful……」
「More, ne〜, more, Lucio-kun」
It’s me a little older than now, and the King and Ojii-san are playing shogi in the hallway in the garden of a Japanese mansion.
……what scene is this?
「As I’ve thought, the two of them gets along with each other」
This time, it’s Amanda-san.
It’s Amanda-san’s maid appearance with her usual unchanging steel faceーーshe’s taking care of a grave.
「It’s Amanda-san, she haven’t changed so it’s probably just a little bit in the future」
……it’s written,「Lucio Martein」, on the gravestone. Why does Amanda-san’s appearance unchanged when she’s visiting my grave?
It’s scary so I just decided not think of it.
This time, Isaac’s appearance was shown.
Under the cold weather, it’s Isaac’s beggar appearance that is frozen.
I felt bad for him a little.
And just like that, I used the new magic, made several futures appear, and cheerfully watched them with the two.
It was Veronica who was shown there.
She seemed sad standing alone in the grasslands, and I came there.
Sylvia, Nadia, and me.
A sheet is spread in the grassland, a picnic where lunch is in a basket.
「Come to think of it, Vero-chan’s missing」
「She said that she’s going for a walk, come to think of it」
「……ne〜, Lucio-kun, is this」
「Ahh, it’s a future that is 30 minutes from now」
「As I’ve thought」
Sylvia and Nadia looked at each other, and nodded.
「I’ll prepare super quickly」
「Please wait for a while okay, Lucio-sama」
I nodded, and saw off the two returning inside the mansion.
In the video of the future, Veronica who seemed sad was now having a great smile.
