Chapter 04 – I’m not a Miko?!
It seemed that the Crown Prince’s impression of me was horrendous. Until they ascertained who was the true Miko, I would be given a luxurious room similar to Kagaya-kun, but only because I was still a possible Miko.
Just like in a movie, the room emitted a medieval European style. Antique furniture, curtains, and bedsheets with uselessly ornate embroidery were all present.
“Itou-sama. My name is Kiel Twain. I will be taking care of Itou-sama from today onwards. Please tell me anything so that Itou-sama will not be inconvenienced.” Said a gentle-looking young man with dark brown hair and dark green eyes.
“Thank you. I don’t know how long I’ll be in your care, but I look forward to working with you. I can generally take care of myself, so I won’t be needing your help.”
“I understand. I’m usually at the waiting room next door, so if you need anything, please let me know with that bell. Also, you don’t need to use honorifics with me.”
“All right. Well, I know I might sound familiar, but can I call you Kiel? For the time being, would you mind telling me where I can find my necessities and what the uses of the room’s things are?”
I had him explain everything about the room before deciding to go to bed.
Even though I was in an extravagant room that I’d never been in, I had no chance of a good night’s sleep as I was still in a state of shock.
The next day, we were brought back to the room in the temple, and both of our magic powers were measured. There was also a large group of magicians and the Crown Prince’s retainers.
The priest from yesterday started talking when we arrived. He had grey-colored hair, eyes of the same colour, and a tall stature. But he didn’t seem intimidating at all. He looked around 40 years old.
“I haven’t introduced myself yet. My name is Elmo Dorant, and I’m an archbishop. Yesterday, I was witness to the summoning ceremony. Today, I would like to examine the magical powers and attributes of both of you. Please hold the plate on this table.”
I approached the wooden table as I was told. There was a thin metal plate attached to the surface of the table and complicated patterns were engraved on it. We held the plate one after the other, Kagaya-kun before me. In the blink of an eye, letters appeared on the plate.
The results were as follows:
Magic Attributes : Light, Water
Magic Power : 7000
Magic Attributes : Light
Magic Power : 300
…Yes. As you can see, Kagaya-kun was overpowered.
“What a surprise! Kaname-dono is a holder of 2 magical attributes! How wonderful! And on top of that, you possess the magic power of a royal court magician!”
“Yes. It is said that all the past Miko possessed an extraordinary amount of magic power. Kaname-sama should learn magic as soon as possible.”
The Crown Prince was ecstatic, along with people who were wearing robes like magicians.
“Compared to him, Itou-dono is…”
“You have the light attribute, but your magical power is overwhelmingly low… it’s at the level of a newborn child.” commented one of the magicians. “If it’s like this, even if you can use magic, you won’t be able to perform the duties of a Miko.”
“Then, it’s certain that our Miko will be Kaname-dono. Since it’s decided, prepare for the announcement! He will become the hope of our exhausted people.” The Crown Prince was clearly excited. “Kaname-dono, let us plan for the future.”
Satisfied, Kagaya-kun and the Crown Prince left together with the magicians and the guards, leaving only the archbishop, a few priests, and me alone.
