“No-no…but aren’t rich people just like that?”
“Did you only know rich people who were cruel?”
Perhaps the only rich people Milka knew were the money lenders who had taken her house.
It couldn’t be helped that she didn’t have the best impression then.
“I do not care to sacrifice children.”
“I see. So you are a decent rich person.”
“Besides, I am also a Scout. I can find simple traps easily enough.”
We continued on smoothly after that, without encountering any traps.
And then we finally hit a dead end.
“This wall looks very hard.”
Luchila said as he inspected it.
“I don’t understand rich people. Who would make a path and nothing else?”
“Maybe they weren’t finished yet?”
“Oh, I see!”
As Luchila and Milka talked like this, I looked at the wall carefully.
“No, this passage continues further on.”
“But it just looks like a sturdy wall to me…”
“There are traces of it having been blocked. And with magic as well. They were very thorough.”
“Is that so?”
Luchila was a Sorcerer, and he looked surprised.
“See, look at this part. You can touch it.”
“Oh, you are right. I do feel a little magic.”
“I don’t know anything about magic, but if it is only a little, does that mean the magic cast on the wall is weak magic?”
“No, it is very strong magic.”
I continued to inspect the wall.
“Let me see, yes…I would put it in the same class as the treasure room in the king’s palace.”
Luchila said in shock. He looked a little disappointed.
“And yet I didn’t even notice it…that’s embarrassing.”
“There is no need to be embarrassed. The traces were covered very carefully. It would not be easy to see it.”
“That’s impressive. It really does look like an ordinary wall.”
Milka said as she ran her fingers over it.
A powerful magic had been cast on it, and then very advanced magic had been used to conceal it.
A novice, no, no ordinary Sorcerer could have done this.
Even a first-rate Sorcerer might have missed it without inspecting it carefully.
That’s the level that it was.
“If it is the same level as the king’s treasure room, does that mean there will be amazing treasure behind it?”
“There must be!”
Milka and Luchila were getting excited.
Even Gerberga was eager.
“I guess I should disarm it and see what’s on the other side.”
“I can’t’ wait!”
I put a hand on the wall. I would be using a simple Unlock spell.
However, it was going against something very intricate.
While it was only unlocking it, it would not be easy to make it succeed.
And so I carefully read the flow of magic and deciphered it.
Then I activated the Unlock spell. At the same time, the wall of rock crumbled without a sound.
