Finishing the Magic Tool
We started making the magic tool right after breakfast, and we finished the first one just before snack time.
It was a lot earlier than I had anticipated.
Kathe looked at the finished product as she stretched. Her tail swayed up and down.
“Yes! I think it’s turned out rather well.”
“Indeed. This is all thanks to you and Mors.”
I said. Mors gave a humble bow.
His tail was also moving up and down.
“Thank you so much. This was very educational for me.”
“I am so glad that I was able to help you, Locke.”
Grulf had been sleeping in a corner of the room. He now got up and wagged his tail.
He was probably trying not to bother us out of consideration.
“You also did very well by being quiet, Grulf.”
He barked as he jumped around.
It was a relatively large room, but it didn’t seem like it when Grulf jumped around.
“I’ll take you on a walk later, so calm down.”
I said as I petted him to calm him. Then I looked towards Luchila.
Luchila had been helping us as an assistant.
“And thank you too, Luchila.”
“Oh, but I barely did anything…”
“That’s not true. You were a great help.”
Lord Gerberga hopped onto Luchila’s shoulder and tousled her hair with his wings.
He was probably praising her for a job well done.
Kathe also patted Luchila on the head and said,
“You know a lot about alchemy too, Luchila. I am very impressed.”
“No, I really don’t. I have a long way to go!”
“She’s right. Your knowledge was very useful.”
Recently, Luchila had been helping Philly as her assistant. And so she was studying alchemy.
Perhaps she would be able to use both magic and alchemy one day.
Magic was more useful for combat. But alchemy allowed you to make more money.
Luchila would one day become chief and restore her tribe.
And that would, of course, require money. So learning alchemy would surely help her.
I handed Luchila the magic tool.
It was made of metal and just slightly smaller than Lord Gerberga in size.
“Luchila. Try activating it.”
There was a low buzzing sound for a second as it activated.
Now the magic tool had an area of effect that was a semi-sphere with a radius that was about five times the height of a man.
An alarm would go off if a dark one entered it.
