it’s rare for people to be able to use it?”

“That I don’t know.
It’s hard to say because there are rumors that it’s partially controlled by the country.
There are people that can use it but don’t tell anyone about it.”

“So it wouldn’t really be strange if monsters used it?”

That’s what I’m most curious about.
It’s not completely impossible, because there are superior species of mage type monsters.

“I have never seen monsters use it, but I have seen dungeons use it a few times.”

Says Leila with a really displeased look on her face.
Are those memories that I should leave alone? Probably.

“What about you, Sera?”

“I haven’t seen monsters use that either, but I can’t detect magic in the first place.”

And it’s such large-scale too.
It feels contrived.

“Getting back to the main topic.
I think it’s important for you to follow this, so I’ll start from the beginning.”

I check to see if everyone’s attention is on me.
I sound kind of pretentious, but I can’t help it.

“Let’s start from when someone sniped at Mia.
I picked up who did it with an ability of mine, but I was injured and Mia fainted, so I couldn’t chase the perpetrator.
But later I went out with Mia, and followed this person to discover where he was hiding.”

Talia looks really interested.
She probably thinks this ability would be very useful for a scout.

“It’s not infallible or anything.
Things like distance can be a problem, and I need to focus while I use it, so it’s tiring.
And using it for a long time is difficult.

I explain it in a way that makes it sound like the technique Luilui uses, although it’s a completely different thing.

But I’m getting off track.

“So we chased the perpetrator, but at some point I lost the reaction.”

“In that building you went to check out before?”

And I saw one of Mia’s attendants there, entering that building.
I watched the building with my eyes and that ability, but the ability turned off and I lost the reaction as that person entered the building.”

“Do you think that could be because of concealment magic?”

“I don’t know that much, but probably.
I did report this to Dan though.”

“So you think the magic being used in that building and the concealment magic used on the monsters are related?”

Asks Yor, but I’m not sure.

“Are you worried about Mia, master?”

Asks Hikari, and those words hit me like a brick.

I see.
So that’s why I’m feeling anxious.
We spent some time together and got to know each other, so I can’t let things end like this.

You’re right.
I’m worried about Mia.
That’s why I want to find out if this whole series of events is connected to something that will harm her.”

“You’re probably overthinking it.
Mia is a saint, but that’s mostly a ceremonial role, with pretty much no real political power.
She might be more popular than the leader of the church, but she doesn’t really have the power to do anything, even if she has the support of the people.”

“I agree with Yor, but we do know for a fact that someone is after Mia.
And if someone related to the church was there, that may mean there are people who don’t think fondly of her.”

Just as I was starting to feel a bit relieved by Yor’s words, Leila’s takes that away.
I feel like I’m back at the start.

“But that would mean that people related to the church used concealment magic and brought monsters together.
I cannot see the merit in that.”

It could be that they’re two completely separate issues, and the use of concealment magic was just a coincidence.

Did I just overthink it?

“You should ask my father.
He might have learned something about this.

Yes, that’s a good idea.

Leila and her party rest for a while, and then put on their equipment and head to the guild.

The rest of us go to the church to talk to Dan.
