206-188 Plays? (1)

So, let's experiment with regeneration, shall we?

"Let's see, ......?

 After returning to the inn and finishing lunch, we gathered in our room.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm going to try.

What is regeneration?

 It's a magic that not many people use, so it seems that Mary didn't have any knowledge of it.

 In the first place, there are almost no beastmen who can use magic, and there are only a few human wizards.

 It's not surprising that she didn't know about it, since ordinary people rarely have the chance to see magic.

To put it simply, that burn mark, that's a magic that might be able to heal it.
What, you can heal it?
I want it to heal! My poor sister!

 We had tried not to talk about it, and Mary and the others hadn't said anything, but the burn marks on the girls' bodies - especially Mary's prominent face - were very painful to look at.

 In the event you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, you can call us at the web site.

I'm sure you'll be fine. You may be able to fix it.
I'm still happy .......

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'll try.

 I'm sure she felt guilty that she was the cause of Mary's severe burns.

I'll try. Then I'll take care of Mary, and Natsuki will take care of Mitya. For now, let's just do the face part. Mary, are you ready?

Yes! Yes, please!

 Mary sits in front of Haruka with a determined look on her face, and offers her face to him with her eyes closed.

 Her ears are trembling slightly, as if she's very nervous.

There's no need to be so strenuous. ....... Okay, then. "Regenerate!

 As soon as she hears Haruka's spell, the burn on Mary's face starts to glow slightly.
 A few seconds later.

And then...! Hahahahaha ......

 The light subsided as soon as Haruka let out a ragged breath, but the scars on Mary's face had not completely disappeared.

 I'm not sure if you've ever heard of it or not, but I'm sure you've seen it.

It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your money.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for and what you can do to help.

I'm not sure what to say. I'm sure you're not the only one.
I know! It's very hard to use magic that's too big for you!

 After Yuki's failed attempt to make precious metal with earth magic, I tried to do the same.

 The result was, of course, failure.
 I almost collapsed just like Yuki.

 But Haruka's Regenerate is working. ...... Could it be that our magic at that time was also generating precious metals on an invisible level?

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

But it was effective enough, wasn't it?
Yes! My sister is much cleaner now!
Really? Really? ......

 Mary touched her face with her hand, not being able to see it, and her cheeks relaxed at the difference in texture.

I guess so. Maybe one or two more uses and you'll be back to normal? Not today, though. I don't have the magic.

But at this rate, I should be able to heal pretty quickly.

 The results were better than I expected, I said, but Haruka shook her head in annoyance.

It's not that easy. It's not that easy. You've just healed an area the size of your palm. If you use it once a day, it will take a few days to heal that area. You can't see much because of her clothes, but Mary has extensive burn marks on her body as well. ......

I remember when you said it was a wonder you were still alive.

 I've heard that if a person burns about 30 to 40 percent of the surface area of their body, it can be fatal.

 In other words, the extent of Mary's burns must have been about that level.

 Considering the fact that she survived for about a week in that condition, is it the life force of a beast, or is it the strength of her will to protect Mitya?

 I haven't heard the details of how he survived, but either way, it's extraordinary.

"At this level of healing for burn scars, regrowing a finger, much less an arm, seems like a long shot. For now.

 I'm sure the efficiency and the amount of magic power will increase as you become more proficient, but surely regenerating just a few millimeters of the surface of the skin is not enough for Haruka's condition.

 In addition to the skin, the muscles, blood vessels, and bones also need to be regenerated, like in the case of the arm, how difficult would it be?

"Hmm, that's the thing, isn't it? Maybe we should do it little by little, like this treatment. One millimeter a day.

...... That's so surreal. It's so surreal. An arm that grows a millimeter a day.

 Haruka frowned at Tohya's analogy.

"And at that rate, it would take several years, wouldn't it? And at that rate, it's going to take a few years to heal," he said. "And if you consider that the surgeon who can use Regenerate is going to be tied up for that long, the cost of treatment is going to be very expensive.

 In fact, I don't know at what level a sorcerer who can use regeneration can heal a defective part, but even Haruka, who is an elf and has a background in light magic, is like this.

 It's definitely a very difficult magic.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for and how to get it.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea. Mitya, please give me your hand.


 Perhaps it was because she had seen Mary's condition.
 I'm not sure if it's because I've been watching Mary, or because Mitya doesn't seem to be in the mood.

I'm not sure what to say.

 This time, Natsuki targeted the area on the back of Mitya's hand.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing.

"...... Huh~. This is not enough? It's all about training.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do this, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

 This is a rare behavior for Natsuki, who doesn't show much sloppiness in front of me and Toya, which probably means she's exhausted.

"Thank you, Natsuki!
"No, no, no. Tomorrow, I'll fix you up nicely.

 In response to Mitya's honest thanks, Natsuki responded with a smile on her slightly tired face.

 From my experience, it will stay like this for a few hours.

 When you use up all of your magic, it's hard to move.

 If you want to heal her, you'd better do it before you go to bed.

However, I was thinking of staying at the inn until Mary and the others' scars heal, but that's just not possible. It'll take too long.

"Don't worry! I've recovered my strength and I'll be able to walk tomorrow.

Me too! I can run too!

 It's true that they can't move at the pace of Mary and the others, but walking at that pace would be troublesome, so someone would have to carry them on their backs. It's hard to believe they were half-dead the day before yesterday.

 The magic and medicine may have had some effect, but I think it was the strength of the beastmen's vitality.

"Then let's leave tomorrow as we originally planned. Is there anything Mary and the others need to do in this town? Say hello to your acquaintances. ......

I'd like to mourn my father if I could, but I don't think it's too ....... It may be too late.

Your house burned down about a week ago. ......

 If a fire breaks out in Japan and someone burns to death, the fire department and police will inspect the scene and preserve the burned remains, and of course the body will be preserved and returned to the bereaved family.

 However, the situation in this world is a little unique.

 First of all, the treatment of the dead body.
 When someone dies, their corpse is cremated.

 The main purpose of the cremation is to prevent the body from becoming undead, and the body is basically burned without leaving any trace of bones.

 It is said that undeadness is not a rare occurrence, but it is inevitable because it would be a problem if it were to happen.

 It is said that the best way is to cremate them with Holy Fire, but only a few people can do that. Most people will collect firewood and cremate the body.

 However, the amount of wood needed for this is quite large, and if there is not enough fuel and the bones remain, they are crushed by hand and then buried.

 As for the burial, only a few rich people and aristocrats would have individual tombs, and the ashes of the common people would be thrown together in a common cemetery set up in the temple, and that is the norm.

 From the point of view of modern Japanese people, the treatment of corpses is generally crude.

 Mary and her father had already been dead for about a week after the fire.

 It might have been different if the house they lived in had been their own, but it was completely rented.
 Moreover, from what I heard, the quality of the landlord was a bit poor.

 It would be better if the remains were recovered and buried in a temple, but if not, they may have been crushed with the rubble and disposed of properly.

Shall we go there for now?
"Yes, please. Please do.

Haruka and Natsuki will be staying at home, right?
Yes. Please. I'm having a hard time with this.

Me, too. I can't use this unless I can get some rest. At least not in combat. Probably not, no matter how good you get.

 I got my arm blown off in combat!
 But I can use Regenerate to recover and continue fighting!

 You can't do that.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're up against.

"What about Mitya, ......?

 The one who immediately responded to my hesitation was him.

 But there are good reasons for hesitation.

 It's not so bad if you've already collected the body, but if you're not, you might see your father's skeleton or burnt corpse, or worse, even a decomposing corpse.

 Should a young child be exposed to such things, no matter how close they are?

 Mary is young enough, but she can't help it if there is no one else.

I think she'll be fine. I'm sure she'll be fine. ...... It's the time of year.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

 Simply put, it's summer now.
 What would happen if we left the body there for a week in such conditions?

 I don't like to imagine such a situation.

 Naturally, people living in the vicinity would do something about it before it happens.

If it's ......, then the five of us, not including Haruka and Natsuki, should go.

"Yes. Please.

 With a slightly gloomy expression, Mary nodded stoutly.
