A Reincarnation Romantic Comedy Of A Hero And A Witch - Volume 1 Chapter 1 Part 2
Chapter 1 Part 2
I, Shiraishi Godo, had memories of my previous life.
Back when I was still called Gray Handlet.
In a world different from this one, I was born, raised, and eventually died.
I was certain that those memories were my own memories.
Back when I was still a child, I would only occasionally dream of those memories, but, unlike other dreams that I usually had, those memories felt more realistic. As I grew older, the frequency of those dreams increased, and gradually, those dreams would appear sequentially, like drama episodes. Clearly, a child shouldn’t have enough capabilities to imagine something like that.
For the longest time, I thought that I caught some kind of illness.
When I consulted my parents about it back then, they brushed it off by saying, ‘Those are only nightmares.’
I could elaborate by telling them the details of the life of a boy, living in a world of sword and magic that was elaborately recreated in my dreams, but I didn’t want my parents to think that I was insane.
Eventually, my parents took me to the hospital, but they said there was nothing wrong with my brain, instead, they told me that I only had a really active imagination. I wasn’t convinced, but I decided to shut up.
Then I continued on with my life, and it wasn’t until the summer of my first year of high school that my memories of my previous life fully awakened. It was then that I realized that the life of that boy called Gray was me from the previous life.
…But, I’ve never told anyone about this.
After all, no one would believe me if I told them. The people in this world didn’t know about the existence of other worlds, moreover, they believe that reincarnation was just something that happened in fictional stories.
Besides, I didn’t even know why I was reincarnated in the first place.
In addition, I got reincarnated in a whole different world, and with my memories intact.
Everything about this was a mystery. I didn’t know what happened and there was no way to find out about it.
That was why I decided to live my life like a normal student until today.
Even though I didn’t know the reason for my reincarnation, it was a second life I’ve been given.
I thought that this time I would live freely without being bound by my duties.
But at this moment, without warning, those peaceful days collapsed.
“It isn’t entirely impossible that I’m also here, but you still couldn’t believe it, could you?”
Shiina, the witch, smiled as she said this.
Immediately after, a silver staff appeared in her hand.
Of course, the witch originally didn’t have a staff that was as tall as she was in her hand, and there was not enough space in her uniform to hide it. In other words, the staff suddenly appeared out of thin air.
A phenomenon that clearly defied the laws of physics.
It was none other than the technique that manipulated the unknown.
“Well, proving it to you is easy, after all, there are no images in this world.”
In this world, instead of magic, a technological system called science dominated the world. I’ve never seen a wizard in this world either. Even if they were hiding in the background of society, they would definitely be rare. Also, the average person only thought of magic as a mere myth.
“You can use magic in this world?”
“Just a little bit. The reason why magic is not well spread in this world is because there is only a small amount of mana here. Just gathering enough mana to manipulate is great enough effort already, so it’s no wonder that nobody ever noticed its existence. Even I, the strongest witch, have to gather mana for years if I were to use more powerful magic. It’s inconvenient since back in the other world, I could gather that much mana overnight”
She said, her voice filled with discontent.
So that was the reason why she used less flashy magic like making a staff appear out of thin air. After all, if this girl was the same as in her previous life, she would at least try to change the whole school into something outrageous to show off her magic.
…Unlike the witch, I couldn’t use magic, neither back when I was still in the other world nor now.
I simply had no talent for it. Though, I didn’t need to use magic to begin with.
“Shiina Mai. You are the reincarnation of the witch, Cerise. It’s a fact that I refused to believe at first, but with what you have shown me, I couldn’t help but believe it…”
Then I asked her.
“What the hell is going on?”
I was aware that this was a very vague question.
But I had no choice because I had no idea what was going on.
“We both crossed through another world, reincarnated then reunited like it was some kind of fate? This can’t be a coincidence. Did you set this up? Was my reincarnation into this world your doing?”
“…Right… Where should I start?”
The witch put her hand over her mouth and pondered.
She didn’t show any reluctance, so she probably wondered how to start her explanation.
Just then, the bell rang for the start of the first period.
“Uh, well, the class should have started already, but it can’t be helped considering the circumstances.”
While I wasn’t fond of skipping classes, this matter is more important than them.
“…Witch? Is something wrong?”
For some reason, the witch’s face turned pale.
“No, no… it’s nothing. You’re right, it can’t be helped, can it? This is more important after all.”
The witch smiled.
…Could it be… she never actually skipped classes before?
The witch who plunged the world into a disaster, THE Cerise Flores?
