There Are Many Possessors in This Romance Fantasy chapter 28
28. The Wish of the Stars
The commotion was over and Froden got out of the Count’s manor before he was suspected of being the culprit. The fire incident that occurred in the middle of the day was enough to get the attention of the people around.
When they arrived, the fire had already caught on and the mansion was burning, so it was perfect for them to be misunderstood as criminals if they delayed a bit.
A whirlwind of anger and futile feelings that had nowhere to go. I feel like I want to hold on to someone and vent my anger.
“First, go back to the duchy.”
First aid was given to Uni, who was in critical condition. Looking down at her pale complexion from the shedding of so much blood, her resentment welled up.
Everything went wrong after the possessed person appeared. Nothing worked, and when I tried to do something, it went wrong and I couldn’t even touch it.
I felt helpless and incompetent. No matter how hard I tried, coped with, and prepared, unexpected things blocked my way.
I did not go out for a while after returning to the duchy. No, he couldn’t get out.
Losing her fiancée right in front of her eyes, she couldn’t even get the revenge she was trying to force herself into. It was also the limit to use anger as fuel to burn the body and forcefully move.
Even if one’s own time stood still, the time around him continued to flow.
The mansion was burnt down and all members of the count’s family either died or went missing, and a collateral of the count’s family who lived far away took over the count’s throne.
In the case of the body that was brutally murdered by the countess, fortunately or unfortunately, it turned out to be an accidental death as it was all turned to ashes by the magic flame that had been burning for several hours.
The war due to the death of the count, which I was so worried about, did not even happen.
Uni has not regained consciousness until now, as the curse inflicted by the countess is serious. His physical condition was not serious. His external wounds are all healed, and internal wounds were checked just in case, but there were no injuries. He just lies there as if he is dead if you look at him still.
Information The guild has undergone a water change after the guild member was brainwashed by her witch.
Under Hadun’s direction and with the support of the Mage Tower, he obtained a tool to determine curses and confirmed all guild members. In the meantime, as soon as they started killing all the people identified, some people ran away, and the number of guild members decreased significantly compared to before.
Currently, in the case of new guild members who come through reorganization, they must go through a curse test. Elin, who saw her, said she seemed to be examining the Plague.
“We are still searching for information about witches. Most of the information that comes in from time to time is false information, but it is not without results. Sooner or later, we will collect all the information, organize it, and upload it.”
As always, Hadoon stands upright and reports. Froden glanced at Hadun leaning on the bed, then turned his head and stared blankly at the floor.
“Today’s report is ideal.”
After that, Hadun closed his mouth and waited for Froden’s command. For the past half year he has been in his room assisting his estranged master.
While commanding the information guild and carrying out previous orders, he was also organizing the situation around him and visiting and reporting at least once a day.
Froden only listened each time, but didn’t say anything. It was just an act of looking at them with dead eyes every time they reported, then turning their heads again when it was over.
The only meal was porridge to supply the minimum amount of nutrients. He didn’t even eat it all and left it, so half a year later, his body was weaker than before.
“If you have nothing to say, I will leave for today.”
She bowed her back and bowed her head as a courtesy to Froden, who was not looking this way. Hadoon left the room without being heartbroken by the reaction.
It was getting dark little by little outside the curtained window. Through a small gap between the curtains, a warm ray of orange light illuminated the room for a moment. Just then, the light fell on the spot where Froden had been gazing blankly.
I slowly turned my eyes to the light that came into my field of vision and headed for the gap between the curtains. It was a bright beige tone curtain.
It was a curtain that Tina forcibly changed after she found a black cloth and made a curtain and used it as a blackout curtain.
The bright scent that lingered around the room was also the scent that Tina had chosen. I left something that needed to be replaced separately, but it seems that Hadoon secretly changed it.
This blanket, the clothes I’m wearing right now, the hairstyle I’ve changed from some time ago, even the trivial furniture in the corner. There was no place beyond her reach.
Having entered deep into her own heart, she was also deeply rooted in her own life. It was something that caught my eye only after she disappeared.
When the other person disappeared, this feeling of longing felt so contradictory that I burst out laughing without realizing it.
All sorts of negative emotions such as self-deprecation, guilt, and disgust ate away at Proden.
“The world has no meaning without you… Where the hell did Tina go?”
Acting as if she had lost the world to herself, she muttered to herself and laughed hysterically.
Like someone who has lost everything and given up.
There was an unexpected emergency at the Magic Tower. The reason why Froden has been locked out for months is that, aside from that, Yuni, the idol of the Mage Tower, has been in a state of unconsciousness.
In the Mage’s Tower, no one except Froden can match his genius. Unrivaled beauty among wizards. And because of her unique words and actions, Yuni was as popular as an idol.
Among them, he was the one who personally witnessed Yuni’s talent and brought her to the Magic Tower. Topju also threw away his research and kept his seat next to her hospital bed. Even though her gender had changed, she was nothing more than a belated child to him.
“Uni, you bastard. What kind of curse has she been subjected to so that she can’t get up like this?”
In the Magic Tower, all miscellaneous knowledge in this world is gathered. There were separate libraries for each level of importance of knowledge, and it was also a place where magical knowledge that had been handed down for hundreds of years was piled up.
There was even a secret place where knowledge that could not be obtained anywhere else was kept separately at the site of the pagoda, which had been passed down from generation to generation.
I looked for all the knowledge related to the curse that exists there. Despite taking all the steps that could be taken with a combination of similar symptoms, this damned guy didn’t even think about getting up.
“You are here again today.”
“Are you here?”
When I raised my voice, at some point, her nose became stuffy. I guess I was shedding tears without even realizing it. When you get older, it’s strange that there are severe ups and downs of emotions.
Elin, who was standing at the entrance behind her, secretly stole a tear. She does have her emotions ups and downs, and it was embarrassing that she showed tears because of just this.
“I tried to combine all the ingredients you gave me differently this time, but it failed. I think there is something missing or wrong with the knowledge I know.”
“The experiment Miss Elin is doing right now is not an area of knowledge that anyone can help with, so you have to do it alone. I can get you any amount of materials.”
“That word alone reassures me.”
Ellin glanced at Uni’s face lying on the bed. A sickly looking face with white hair. That beautiful appearance was shining even in this situation.
It was a strange atmosphere reminiscent of Snow White who collapsed after eating a poisoned apple.
“Didn’t the antidote I gave you last time work?”
While modern knowledge works well, why do all the knowledge used in the game have little or no effect?
As soon as she found out that Yuni had collapsed due to the witch’s curse, she made an antidote for the curse and fed her. But with no antidote, Yuni didn’t wake up with her eyes closed.
“It definitely worked for other poison and curse items, but it didn’t work for this kid.”
“Why doesn’t the antidote only work for Yuni?”
“Maybe the poison isn’t the problem.”
It was not a hobby for the tower owner to wait.
Although he has abandoned his original research and stuck here, he is a wizard by nature, and has lived his entire life studying magic.
I tried everything by looking for similar phenomena as well as curses, but it failed, so I only reached a lull for a while.
“I’ve only heard of witches’ curses and forbidden magic. But I never thought it would be this awful.”
“Forbidden magic is not limited to curses.”
In the game, it just came out as an enhanced version of the curse. As there are many endings that collapsed because the cause of the world’s destruction was simply not paying the price, I didn’t pay much attention to the magic itself.
But he is known differently to wizards who learn and study magic and live with magic.
“Forbidden magic is an ancient magic called the wish of the stars.”
“Your name before it was changed is pretty.”
Elin smiled cynically. The name of the magic that destroys the stars is the wish of the stars. It’s paradoxical.
“This ancient magic is simple. First of all, sacrifice your castle and engrave magic into your body. It’s strange to say that it’s compatible with magic… Anyway, the better the compatibility, the lighter the price required to activate magic.”
“The tower lord must have been very interested in this magic. You know the details to the point where it’s questionable.”
Perhaps because the situation she is currently in is dangerous, Elin did not easily trust the good characters in her original work. This is a game world, but it is a place where many things have already gone wrong.
“Because the former pagoda owner, who was my teacher, became a witch. I saw the research journal he left behind.”
The tower owner answered that question as if nothing happened.
She Of course she didn’t completely believe it. If there was a disappearance in this body that can handle magical powers, she would have already become a witch.
Forbidden magic, the ancient magic called the wish of the stars was attractive. Even the price can be passed on to someone else rather than being paid by oneself, and it felt like a pleasure without responsibility.
But he, who is more serious about magic than anyone else, doesn’t pay attention to magic even in this situation? It was an incomprehensible choice for Elin’s common sense line.
“If I become a witch, this child will. Froden, who will help him? Even if this is an old body, I have to roll over and help.”
“Being a witch would be quicker to understand the forbidden magic. Then Uni’s curse could have been lifted right away.”
The tower owner clicked his tongue. His gaze continued toward Yuni, but he didn’t even turn his head toward Elin.
“You know one, you don’t know two. Wish of the Stars is a magic that is easy, powerful, and anyone can learn. But you don’t know that it corrupts users that much.”
At his unexpected words, Elin’s mouth, which had been constantly clinging to his feet, stuck. As he rolled his eyes in surprise at the sudden truth, the tower owner continued.
“The reason why it became forbidden magic is simple. Because this world was almost destroyed because of that magic. And to all those who use that magic.”
At that time, the person who was writing the wishes of the stars was half the world.
At her words that followed, Elin felt her mind wander. The only way to stop forbidden magic is to kill the person using it.
Phenomena caused by curses or magic that have already been applied are restored as if they were the same when the caster is killed.
“I think Miss Elin knows something, so I will omit it. That’s right. At that time, half of the world’s population died. It was really the prelude to a life-and-death war.”
As a result of that incident, an empire was established, and the wishes of the stars became forbidden magic.
“Excuse me. My words went too far. Sorry.”
“I have brought the ingredients I asked for last time where they always have been.”
At the tower lord’s order to celebrate, Elin sighed deeply and left her entrance. As the presence of hers behind her disappeared, Topju grabbed Yuni’s hand tightly.
“I will protect you.”
The monologue that no one listened to was scattered and disappeared after circling the air.
I had a dream.
The world seen in the dream was destroyed.
