Chapter 117 : A Female Hero’s Career
「Travelling via sea is so fu~n!」
Lily, Faeri, and May played on the ship. They stood against the wind and enjoyed the strong wind rush their whole body.
The ship’s speed on the ocean’s surface after King pulled it was far higher than what Ciel had told them before.
The wind aside, the spray of the water as the ship split the waves was a sight to behold. Almost everyone had chosen to remain on standby inside the ship, but Lily, Faeri, and May had decided to come out and enjoy the combination of the wind and the water.
「Amazing! Even though the ship is traveling at such speed, the ship isn’t shaking at all.」
「Nyeah! The spirit world’s technology is amazing!」
Aria and Vulcan, who had chosen to stay inside the ship, conversed with each other.
The spirit world, otherwise known as Arc, was the place where Ciel’s ship had been created. The ship had been created using special materials and technology that eliminated the vibrations it faced when traveling on water.
And that wasn’t everything.
The inside of the ship was far off from what anyone could think of a normal ship. Unlike what its outer appearance suggested, it was spacious.
It had a large living room, several bedrooms, a toilet, and a shower room on top of that.
「Just what kind of a world is the spirit world called Arc, Ciel-sama?」
「You see, it’s a rather strange world. Monsters and humans live together in harmony there, and their magic tools’ technology is miles away ahead of that in our world.」
「That’s… definitely a strange world.」
（That sounds like a tamer taming a monster, but… I guess it’s definitely a world beyond our imagination. After all, they can even create a storage space that can store a living being of King Kraken’s size.）
Tama, who was resting in his favorite place—between Aria’s twin melons, nodded as he heard Ciel’s story.
「May I ask a rather rude question, Ciel-samnyan?」
「How old are you right now, Ciel-sama? Appearance-wise, you seem like an eighteen-year-old girl, but… you said before that you visited Arc a long time ago, right?」
Vulcan asked purely out of curiosity.
And, the answer she heard was―
「I’m a hundred and eleven years old. I was summoned to Arc around twenty years ago and returned to this world five years after that.」
It was a shocking piece of information.
Despite Vulcan’s blatant surprise, Ciel continued with her explanation.
「You see, I’m rather special even amongst the rabbit-eared race. My lifespan is longer than normal. Well, it’s thanks to this long lifespan that I can endure traveling to another world.」
「N-Nyaa… As expected of the one who bears the hero title.」
Even though May had dropped a bombshell on them when she had said that she was from the future, Aria and Vulcan came to realize that Ciel, the female hero in front of them who had returned from a spirit world, was no less impactful than May.
While they were talking, Stella was taking a nap on the sofa. Cedric had long escaped to another room as soon as they had boarded the ship, saying, 「Sorry, but I can’t stand the notion of breathing the same air as you women in the same room for a long time☆」.
A few hours later―
A roar rang out outside the ship. Suddenly, everyone felt that the ship had stopped moving.
「It seems King is out of breath. Let’s take a rest for a while.」
Ciel left her seat after saying those words.
Aria and Tama followed her.
The gentle sea breeze enveloped them as soon as they stepped out on the ship deck.
And maybe it was just as Ciel had said, King Kraken was out of breath.
Even though the tentacles on the ship were still there, King’s other tentacles were already spread around on the ocean’s surface as if King were stretching its feet.
「Come to think of it, it’s the time for lunch. Shall we use this occasion and have lunch in this place?」
「Nice idea, nyan! Let’s eat the various dishes we brought along while enjoying the sea breeze!」
Vulcan happily replied to Aria’s suggestion.
Stella, Faeri, Lily, and May then appeared from inside the ship cabin, seemingly baited by the word “lunch” and “dishes.”
「Di… shes? How? if my memory serves me right, Aria and the others just brought minimal luggage with them, right?」
Ciel asked with a curious look on her face.
Hearing that, Aria signaled to Tama with her eyes as she said to Ciel, 「Well, behold.」
「Nya~n (Roger that, master)!」
Tama let out an adorable purr as he activated his 《Storage》 skill.
And then, tableware such as plates and other kinds of containers such as pots appeared on top of the empty deck.
「WOOOW! Don’t tell me, this is Tama-chan’s skill!?」
May asked Aria with an excited voice.
「Such a surprise! To think that there’s a creature that can store things in a dimension pocket without magic or an arc ball…」
Ciel was also surprised, and she looked at Tama with widened eyes.
Seeing that, Tama made a triumphant face in his seat, Aria’s twin melons.
Cedric also came outside at that moment, maybe because he couldn’t stand it anymore.
Thus, the chosen ones who had departed to save the future had lunch as they enjoyed the sea breeze and deepened their relationship.
