I give you this short story. *Applause* (?)
A woman’s voice was heard in the shop that had no guests that came for years.
Met with these unexpected circumstances, the eyes of the old woman blinked.
Her shop, was a shop that couldn’t be summoned for its products.
At any rate, she was not interested in selling. The shop’s existence itself was covered in magical power; covered in multiple layers that diverted any magic that specialized in recognition.
Her handmade medicine was quite highly effective, also she made a wide range of variety of medicine.
Surely there were a lot of customers who wanted such medicine, with that sort of idea there were some people who came once in several years after struggling to find the shop.
Only that the probability of a person who coming across her shop would be a miracle, and one had to be willing to hand in their good fortune to find it.
However, because of the soaring prices, there were few people who could afford to buy items.
In the end, if you were to say she didn’t feel like selling, you could say your right, and you could say your wrong.
The reason being that she was a whimsical witch.
If she was pleased with the customer who had arrived, they would only pay the fee of the item they requested, otherwise she would overcharge the customer. That was that.
In this way, it had been roughly 50 years that she ran the business the way she liked, and there was no customer that came by for several years as far as she was concerned as it continued to be quite peaceful every day
[Huh? Is there no one here? That’s weird…… I thought that shop was here…]
It had been 50 years since it opened. As a sound of a young lady’s voice that was never heard before echoed in the shop.
The old woman’s eyes opened wide in surprise. Without a powerful magic ability, she would have never been able to find this place.
Such a young lady.
[…… It’s here. Welcome, my lady. You seem to come from a good family young lady, but who helped you in finding this shop? ]
As I revealed myself, the young lady’s face showed surprise.
However, that was the same with the old woman. A beautiful purple eyed young lady. Her clothes were similar to an appearance of a town girl but perhaps she was quite a high ranking noble. There was no such person who ever came since the day she opened her shop.
[ It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Lidi. Naturally, I came alone because ….. it’s I couldn’t ask another person to….]
I looked at the young woman who hung her head down as her cheeks dyed in red, I somehow understood what she wanted to request.
[ Aah, you wanted the 『Delis’ Secret Medicine』 …… But even so, from the looks of it, you have skillfully discovered this shop alone, right?]
[….? I have done nothing really. Somehow or another I was just wondering about that, until suddenly a pathway that wasn’t there before just appeared so-]
[ You mean a pathway appeared…?]
I nodded in understanding at the young lady who became confused at the appearance when she searched.
When the magic was nullified, the hidden passageway became exposed.
While I hurriedly casted to restore the spell that hid the store, she could not hide her surprise.
[ I am surprised…… Are you able to use nullification magic?]
[ Magic? No, I am not really good with magic.]
From the bottom of my heart, as I turned my eyes towards her I would say I was shocked. It appears that herself did not recognize the nullification magic that she used.
[Is it unconscious? …. It’s quite scary. To think, I never thought that the day would come that my magic would be nullified.]
Even more so she removed the layers of my concealment magic, I released a sigh of relief.
Mysteriously, after a long time I felt that I was going to have fun as the young lady looked at me.
[ I am Delris. The witch Delris…… Alright. Because It has been a long time that I was surprised, let’s sell [Delris’ Secret Medicine], shall we?]
