I hope I haven’t arrived too late. While wondering about this I opened the doors of the store and quietly peeked in.I immediately widened my eyes in surprise at the various different flashy outfits. While most of them aren’t that flashy compared to what I had seen back in the other world, but they could easily hold up to most of what I had seen. Still, compared to what I had seen in this world, wearing those in the streets would probably be very eye catching.
Hmmm… In fact, there’s some really nice clothes here that I just might get for myself. Still, I couldn’t see any kimono selling, so I decided to ask an employee..
However, upon seeing that there wasn’t anyone at the counter, I sighed heavily in defeat.
(AN: Okay, brief disclaimer, but even I think that Inari went a bit overboard in this chapter when I re-read it just now. That said, I feel it’s kind of fitting to show how broken and powerful Inari is, as well as how her sense of what’s right and wrong, and what can be called going overboard can be a bit distorted thanks to her years in the other world. That said, next chapter is back to more funny shenanigans.)
Well, I don’t know how to say this but… It seems that I started creating my own little country inside the arcade, and I’m pretty sure that it wasn’t because of the charm because I kept it under tight leashes.
While sitting on the dislodge car game seat that had been put on the main floor, I extended my hand outwards and soon the prime ministe- ermm, no. The manager, Donovan, gave me the small bottle of water, which I gladly took upon and drank in small dosages, moistening my dry throat.
I landed on the rooftop of the mall, where they used it as a garage. Scanning the area briefly, I only saw one small group far away that were leaving from a car. After making sure they hadn’t heard my arrival, I quickly darted over to what looked like a stairway and started making my way down to the insides of the building. Only after making sure I was in a blind-spot of the cameras did I finally remove the invisibility spell from myself.
Since I was alone and didn’t have to bother with looking after Clarie, I decided that there was no need for me to use the presence diminishing spell, as I was more than used to being the center of attention. Besides, I admit being curious about how people would react to seeing my human form in this world.
“Oh gods… You aren’t going to start it again, are yah?” Pris asked with a fatigued tone as she watched the yellow magical girl’s eyes sparkle dangerously. “You are…”
“My, oh my. How could I have been so blind. It all makes sense now!” Sparkle yellow said as she started twirling into the air. “All our battles up to now had mostly been one-sided even though our enemies were always big monsters. Then, suddenly, a human-looking girl in dark clothes similar to ours appear and become a real challenge, even to the point of defeating us as she looks down and say: You aren’t worthy of being magical girls!”
I sat on the couch while reading through some magazines that I found in Clarie’s bedroom. Surprisingly enough, it wasn’t anything fashion related, and instead had mostly current news about the situation of the city, country and world as a whole. Taking this chance to catch up on news that were more than a thousand years old for me, I waited as she finished preparing herself.
One good and bad thing about having enhanced senses is the fact that I can hear everything, this meant that even though I’m two rooms away from the bathroom with the TV turned on at a high volume, I could still hear the water running from the shower. Knowing full well how embarrassing it is to have someone listening on you while you are taking a shower, I decided to cast a silence spell around the whole room, blocking the sound from outside.
