Black Iron Magician - 113
Chapter 113 Overcoming a Turbulent Night
―――― The 16th day of training.
Last night was a really meaningful time.
Therese was able to learn faster than I expected, and as soon as I showed her the right path, she absorbed it quickly. It looks like she will be able to make it in time for the graduation festival. Oh my, maybe I have excessive talent as a teacher. I hadn’t thought about it before I took Haru as my disciple, but I think I can aim for that path in the future.
Now, it’s eight o’clock in the morning. The refreshing light of the morning sun shines through the window, and the chirping of the little birds serves as a wake-up call, encouraging me to wake up. I’m in a good mood and I can enjoy my breakfast. I’m sure the others must be feeling the same way.
「So, my comrade. Why are these three lying on the table even though it’s breakfast time?
「W-Who knows? Maybe they were too motivated yesterday and got carried away, I guess?」
Nell, who sweats on her forehead, diverts her gaze in an easy-to-understand manner.
Currently, we are having breakfast at the long table in the dining room of the mansion, but Haru, Chinatsu, and Touko are not trying to move even with the breakfast in front of them. I don’t even know if they are sleeping or fainting.
「You… It’s quite bad that Haru is not even moving when the breakfast is in front of her, you know? What on earth did you do yesterday?」
「Hey, why a question mark?」
Did you continue to train until all three of them couldn’t move? Haru, who always does her best to get up and eat, is in such a state, so there’s something that must be done more than that. That’s to rest with all her best! The recovery by just sleeping last night couldn’t catch up the fatigue from Nell’s training after all.
See, she’s trying her best to recover. She’s drooling.
While somewhat twitching, Touko opened her heavy eyelids and made a weak voice that was so unlike her.
「I-I can understand why… Haruna and Chinatsu… have become so strong… To think that… they were doing this cruel special training…! My daily training is… like a child’s play… (collapse).」
Touko dies again.
「…… Cruel special training?」
「I-I wonder what she’s talking about? I have no idea at all.」
Nell’s line of sight is swimming frankly. Hey, yesterday was an eventful day, you know? Facing against a griffon on the way, facing against golems in the dungeon, and successive battles against the classmates. And then you, the last boss, came out at the very end and tortured them to death. Well, that just cruel. Still, if they passed through the deadline several times, I can expect a lot of growth in the status.
「Oh my! As expected of Deris-san’s disciples desuwa! In order to obtain the overwhelming strength to protect the people, I also have to go that far, right!? Deris-san, may I double my training schedule!?」
「No, you can’t. It may be effective in the very short term, but in the long run, your body won’t be able to endure it. Resting and venting in moderation is also an excellent job. If you collapse from stress, you won’t be able to show the people what you’re capable of, right?」
「Uh, you have a good point desuwa. After all, I’m going to stick to the schedule that Deris-san told me desuwa!」
「That would be good.」
That was close. I’m not sure what Duke Ortho, the doting parent, would say if Therese were to do this too. Still, I guess it’s difficult to get these three people to stand up today.
「Ehehe, Goshujin-sama is the kindest among the three of you. Ahh, I want you to be kind to me too.」
「Hey, don’t cling to me. More importantly, Lily, did you get the things I asked?」
「I did! The size is also perfect. There is no doubt that it will suit the two of them!」
Lily proudly makes a peace sign that’s improper for a maid. Leave aside her work attitude, her ability to measure the three sizes perfectly by just looking is amazing. It will hard to enter the academy without this.
「Funya…? Morning, it’s morning… I have to make breakfast and do running――」
「Uhh, the best course of action to get out of the current crisis is… my head is hurt…」
It seems that Haru and Chinatsu have returned even while being half asleep. They may fall again like Touko, though.
「Good morning. Are you alive?」
「Fuhee, Shishō…? G-Good morning!」
「… Good morning.」
「Okay, I’m going to cast recovery magic.」
Recovery, recovery! And to Touko as well while we are at it!
「Waah, I feel much better!」
「I’m back alive!」
「I’m sorry to trouble you. I didn’t have the energy to recover on my own…」
「I’m glad to hear that. Even if you get rid of your physical fatigue, you can’t get rid of your mental work. Just to be safe, you need to rest for the day. Training is also prohibited.」
Haru and Touko screamed in grief. Shut up, if I say you can’t, you can’t.
「Anyway, Haru, I’m sure you haven’t checked your status since yesterday, right? It’s a good opportunity to reevaluate yourself.」
「You should check your status too, Chinatsu. I’m sure you are stronger after dying so much!」
I give Nell a light forehead flick. Now, let’s check their status.

「Congratulations. Haru, now you are splendidly level 5.」
Haru is steadily, but moving forward at full speed to raise her skills to the higher rank. The magic relation that has been a bottleneck so far is also good. As the job has leveled up, now she has more skill slots available and she’ll be able to improve even more. We have to go again for a fun scroll hunting. But this time, there’s something more than that――
「Chinatsu, the growth of your Calculation and Detection skills are impressive, huh.」
「Yes, a lot has happened…」
Only at this part, she has grown more than Haru. What is this, is she perhaps overstressed?
「Whoa! Deris-danna, look at this! I’ve leveled up!」
While saying that, the exiced Touko pushed the Sacred Stone in front of me.
「H-Hey, it’s your status, so you don’t have to see it from the Sacred Stone! I can see it, you know!?」
「I’m showing you!」
