The next day, in front of the Hunter Guild building…
She invited me today for a hunt but when I saw her at the meeting place, Asuna was making a troubled face.
“What’s wrong, Asuna?”
“Ah. Liam… No… but…”
Her expression was really complicated as she smiled awkwardly.
“It’s a love letter.”
I’m surprised because she just said some unexpected words. I looked at her again to confirm.
Then, she took out another envelope. Actually, there were 3 letters in total.
“Today, on the way here, I’ve been called over 3 times.”
“Just what happened suddenly, I wonder? Even though something like this didn’t happen until yesterday.
Maybe it’s because of the Giant Frog subjugation that we did?”
She said while tilting her head but, I know that it’s not because of what she thinks.
“That’s the result of our contract.”
“Familiar contract. I’m sure you didn’t realize it but, as soon as our contract was established, Asuna,
you became incredibly beautiful, you know.”
Asuna screamed with a slight delay in her voice.
As I thought, the person herself didn’t realize it.
“Is, is that true?”
“You didn’t see yourself in a mirror?”
“E… no way, Liam. Mirrors are a luxury item for commoners, you know. Though I’m a noble 10 generation ago, but still…”
“Ah… you’re right.”
I forgot that there’s something like that.
Mirrors are luxury items. It’s not really needed so generally, commoners don’t have a mirror in their house.
“Anyway, you’ve become really beautiful that’s why they come to you, I think.”
“Does that mean my face had changed?”
“No, you’re still the same. You just became more beautiful.”
“Hee… this is amazing. It’s not just the skill… even the appearance got enhanced.”
“After yesterday’s ceremony, I did some research using the documents inside my mansion’s library. The reason for that change is that a familiar should be able to perform their best so the body will also be upgraded to its best form.”
“I see, I see… So that’s it…”
She tried touching her own face.
It seems like she is still trying to accept her situation though there’s nothing really bad about it.
Well obviously, every woman will be happy if you tell them that they’re beautiful.
On the other hand, I raised my chin and thought about our condition now.
“What’s wrong? Do you have something in mind?”
“A-ah. Now that we’ve come to this, I wanted to try the extent of this familiar contract. Since it’s different from normal magic and
it involves an actual person, I wonder if there’s something…”
If it’s contract summoning since it summons the target’s [Phantom], I can try it without concern, but…
“…Then, I think I know something.”
When I raised my head, I saw a very excited Asuna.
Asuna brought me to the town’s border.
There’s a normal house there just like the one I used to live in before reincarnating.
Asuna knocked on the door of the house without hesitation.
“Jodi-san, you there?”
She tried knocking and calling the name one more time.
Since there’s no response, I asked her.
“Un. A hunter. I’m indebted to him in so many things when I was still a fledgling.”
“Fumu, then what should we…”
The door opened when I was about to say something.
The old hinge made a squeaking noise.
And behind the door is… a middle-aged woman.
Maybe because she’s in her 40’s, her expression was calming and her appearance makes me feel that she’s somewhat kind.
“It’s been a long time, Jodi-san.”
“Ara… isn’t this Asuna? What brings you here today?”
“I have something to talk to you about. Is it okay to come in?”
“Ee, please. You too, please come in.”
Jodi-san had let us in before hearing what the talk is all about.
Her voice is calm just like her expression, but she is not a reckless person.
Her voice alone depicts her deep knowledge and reasoning.
We walked inside her house.
And we went to the living room where she let us sit while she served us tea.
After we settled, Asuna told her about the Familiar’s contract.
“Ara-ara, to think that after not seeing you for a while, you have become this beautiful. And it’s all because of this. I really thought that you had finally managed to find someone that can make you happy.”
Jodi-san talked gently with a soft smile while looking at me.
Hmm… her meaning was…
The reason Asuna became beautiful is that she has found love, or so that’s what she thought, huh.
“That’s, well… let’s not talk about that.”
She made a gesture that nothing special is going on.
“Jodi-san, will you make a contract with Liam?”
“Un. Liam, I really recommend Jodi-san. If we become a party, she will become a formidable power, in my opinion. She’s a very strong veteran.
If it’s skill that we want, then she’s the strongest.”
I turned my gaze at Jodi-san.
I finally get what she wanted.
If she trusted her that much, then…
“Erm, Jodi-san, that’s the thing… How about it?”
“I wonder if I can become your power…”
“If it’s Jodi-san, I’m sure you will.”
Since her response is positive, Asuna kept on pushing it. And then after all that, we brought her to the Hunter’s Guild.
I explained the situation to the Guild Master and had him do the familiar contract again.
Just like yesterday, he will cast the magic, and create a familiar contract.
Jodi-san and I got enveloped by the magic’s light that kept on spreading until it filled the entire guild.
Also, just like yesterday, people are watching us intently.
And then, the moment the light had subsided…
“E??” The audience became noisy again.
Everyone in this place became shocked.
Their level of shock right now is definitely more than yesterday.
“Ara? Everyone, is there something wrong?”
The one standing there now is a girl like Asuna. A beautiful girl in her teens.
She’s rejuvenated. Even with one look, I can understand.
The Jodi-san in her 40’s got rejuvenated into a beautiful girl in her teens.
“U-unbelievable… Just how much magic potential do you have? Unbelievable…”
The words that the Guild Master spoke felt like the representation for everyone in here.
Using a familiar contract, adding my magic potential, Jodi-san has unexpectedly became rejuvenated.
