you can scratch that boulder.」(Tori)

「Alright.」(Mark)

I nodded and immediately stuck out my hand toward the boulder.

「Stone Bullet!」(Mark)

A bullet of stone created from my earth attribute mana flew straight toward the boulder.

ーBAAANG!

It hit the boulder along with the loud sound and cracked it.

I see.
Certainly, that black boulder is very hard.
I could have destroyed it easily if it was an ordinary boulder.

「In that case… How about this? Lance Bullet!」(Mark)

I created a spear of hard soil and sent it flying toward the boulder.

It stabbed the boulder deeply and made the crack spread further.

For the last strike, I want to use that spell but…

「Tori-san, is there anyone living on that side?」(Mark)

While asking that, I pointed at the woods beyond the boulder.

「…Eh? Ah, n-no.
Nobody lives around there.
My house is at the edge of the village after all.
Why did you ask that?」(Tori)

Tori was taken aback for a second but then he came to his senses and answered my question.

「Because this spell is dangerous and I don’t want to hurt anybody.
Alright, here I go! Cutter Disk!」(Mark)

I created an earthen disk, covered it with a swirling wind that was rotating at a very high speed, and threw it at the boulder.

The disk cut the boulder in half diagonally.
However, it didn’t stop right there.
The disk kept going and cut down several big trees behind the boulder.

The trees collapsed and made a loud sound as they hit the ground.

Looks like I overdid it… My spells got stronger probably because of the Ether I got from the Harem Lizard.

Seems like I need to be more careful when I use my spells…

By the way, Cutter Disk is the spell I came up with when I fought The Lord of the Lake in Secard Village.

「This is how I normally fight.
What do you think, Tori-san?」(Mark)

I turned my gaze to Tori-san, but he was frozen while looking at the black boulder that was split in two with his eyes and mouth wide open.

「Mark, you’re amazing! I never thought you were so strong!」(Ester)

The one who made a voice first was Ester.

「Well, all I can do is launch magic attacks from a distance.
I can’t fight in close-range combat.」(Mark)

「Still, your magic is amazing! I’m not good at using magic, so honestly, I envy you!」(Ester)

While staring at me with sparkling eyes, Ester grabbed my hands and shook them passionately.

「That’s right! Mark, would you like to spar with me? I need someone to practice with!」(Ester)

I knew it… Somehow I could tell that Ester was a battle maniac.

Now I wonder how I should turn her down…

「U, Umm…」(Mark)

While I was thinking, Celine sent me a rescue boat.

「Ester, stop it.
You trouble him.
His spells are dangerous, and he doesn’t wanna use them on people.
Please understand.」(Celine)

Ester looked down.
She looked like a puppy whose tail and ears were hanging down.

「You’re right… I’m sorry, Mark…」(Ester)

「P-Please don’t mind it.」(Mark)

I smiled awkwardly at her while waving my hands.

I’m glad I don’t have to spar with her…

「So, Tori jii-san, what do you think of Mark’s spells? They’re way more powerful than your tube, right?」(Celine)

Celine said that with a smug face while crossing her arms as if she was the one who cut the boulder in half.

「…Give me a minute.
I’m still confused… Celine, he really is still a child, right? He’s not an adult dwarf with a child’s face, right?」(Tori)

「Of course not.
His parents are humans, so he’s definitely a human too.」(Celine)

Tori scratched his head while staring at me.
Looks like he became more confused after listening to Celine.

「I can’t believe there’s a child who can use such powerful spells… Mark, I’m sorry.
I don’t think I have any magic tools that can help you in combat…」(Tori)

「No, no.
It’s okay.
In the first place, I didn’t come to look for magic tools to use in combat.
If you have any interesting magic items or useful magic tools that make things easier, I may exchange my magic stones for them.」(Mark)

「Eh? Is that so? Since you’re adventuring with Celine, I thought you wanted some magic tools to kill monsters or something… Well, I may have some that might pique your interest.
Let’s go back to my house.」(Tori)
