Chapter 58. Oblivion (2)
Weekly Chapter (4/5)
Soon golden words appeared in the air.
When Elizabeth waved her hand in the air again, those letters flew to the meteoric iron bracelet. The letters were engraved one by one on the bracelet.
What? Was that an incantation? Is it that easy to make an artifact?
Elizabeth handed him the meteoric iron bracelet. The inscribed words glowed red, as if they had been engraved with fire.
“It’s a gift in return.”
Actually, he had prepared the candy with this intention.
But he had to make a good impression.
“I think this is too much.”
“Don’t worry. Just keep it a secret that I gave this to you.”
“The bracelet will fit you.”
Then, he put the bracelet on the wrist of his left arm.
“It will block curses. It has good synergy with the meteoric iron.”
Sylverine’s advice had worked
When he asked the butler about Sylverine, he replied that she was out for a walk.
Then he went to the lakeside.
The breeze was refreshing.
He could see her in the distance.
She, who was sitting on a stele, looked out over the lake.
She didn’t seem to notice him approaching her. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
The wind moved her hair.
He stopped to contemplate the view.
It was like a painting. He felt that his intrusion distorted it.
Sylverine turned her head to one side.
“When did you get here? Come here.”
She patted the stele with her palm.
Damien, who sat beside her, returned to gazing at the lakeshore.
Sylverine looked different than usual. She wasn’t wearing her fancy accessories.
She wore no earrings, no rings, no necklaces.
Sylverine looked like a mage with those accessories.
But now she looked like a pretty noblewoman.
“When do I go to Eternia Academy?”
A journey to the Academy would take a few weeks. He would be on time if he left now.
“You just passed a difficult evaluation, you shouldn’t think about the future. In a few days you won’t be able to look at this lake, so enjoy the moment.”
Sylverine looked happier than usual.
“I really don’t know how to enjoy life. I just endured day to day until I came here.”
He replied as he looked out over the lake. The scenery was beautiful.
“You won’t come back here after the entrance exams are over, right?
It takes a long time to travel to Wiesel from the Academy, so he would stay there until the entrance ceremony.
She was quiet for a while.
She then changed the subject to something else.
“Vampires loved this lake too.”
“…That’s a little creepy.”
He remembered that Sylverine had said that vampires used to live in the mansion. Was Wiesel a place that had close ties to vampires?
“Even though vampires live forever, they can remember everything. It’s believed to be a curse. They have to live with the memories they want to forget.”
“Do you know what they called this lake? They called it the Lake of Oblivion. It means that this lake is so beautiful that when you look at it, the painful past fades away and you can concentrate only on the present moment.”
“What do you think about it?”
“I think they’re right. What do you think?”
“Well… I don’t know.”
To him it was just a lake.
“But since I came to Wiesel, my memories became a blur.”
If he had stayed in Harman, he would probably remember everything like the vampires.
He would always have those who abandoned him in his mind.
But many things changed after he met Sylverine.
His heavy past slowly faded away. Now he blamed no one.
He felt a little freer, unattached.
“That’s good. Because then new people can come into your life.”
