Chapter 6:

Lucius

Otherworld Transfer: The story You don't know


"Ah, it seems all of you are awake, allow me to introduce myself"


A clear sounding voice brings me back to reality from the shock of seeing all the burnt bodies. No, not bodies. Corpses, yes corpses. The burnt corpses around me.


"I am the head priest of the temple of Ouroboros- sama, Lucius Rengifu Melari, you may call me Lucius"


The guy called Lucius says while climbing up the stairs.


"Hm? What is this? The princess- sama seems to have fainted, is she dead?"


Lucius then snaps his fingers and five people come up the stairs, they arrive in front of me and after making sure that she is breathing, they carry the pink haired marshmallow girl away...


" Well, nevermind that, have you all recovered? Then can you please follow me? The situation shall be explained to you by his majesty, the emperor."


Hearing this, I look behind me to observe the others' reactions, all of them have faces that clearly want to ask a couple of questions... Well almost all of them since Kanzashi- san still seems to be glaring at me, maybe it's just my imagination?


It seems they still haven't noticed the corpses yet.


After a while, Kurono- sensei stands up.

"It looks like we don't have a choice, do we?"


"I'm afraid not." Lucius replies


"Well then, students, we shall be following Lucius- san for now."
Kurono- sensei announces to us


And towards Lucius:
"I have a lot of questions I want to ask you know?"


"Of course Hero- san, all of those will be answered by his majesty soom enough, now then shall we leave?"


After the exchange, the Riajuu group stand up one by one, they don't look like they have their bags with them. Following Kurono- sensei they walk towards her an approach Lucius.


"Natsuki- kun? Can you get up and grab your things please? We're leaving now you know?"


Kurono- sensei asks and in response I stand and open up my desk cover, pack all the books I received this morning into my bag and have one final look around.


All these corpses.

One by one the Riajuu group walks past me and...


OUCH!!!


Kanzashi- san accidentally steps on my foots as she passes by me! So much force coming from such a small girl, as I rub my foot which is in a lot pain, I can swear I heard her muttering something with a cold expression on her face...

"..rvert.."


Let's just pretend I didn't hear anything. Yup, nothing. Absolutely nothing. Who's a pervert? Not me. Nope. She must be talking about Yoichi. Yep I'm no pervert. I am a sage.


Following Lucius and some priest-like people we head down the stairs and proceed out the door.


Directly outside the door,on the floor there is a circle large enough to fit 20 people, various patterns are drawn on the inner part of the circle, it is radiating a faimt blue glow.


"Will everyone please step into the transportation magic circle?"


Transportation magic? Magic? It's not 'that' magic is it? The one in light novels?


Kurono- sensei obediently steps inside, the Riajuu group follows after her, I step in last. After confirming that everyone was inside the priest begin saying something that sounded like a chant.

"O gateway of the world, link our paths, bring us to our destination as you render distance meaningless. Transport!"


Lucius and the priests hands begin to glow a faint blue, then the light from the circle intensifies.
