Translation - English Relharney
“This is boring. “
“It takes me so much effort to control mana outside.
But nobody ever praises me.”
“For everyone else, it’s a given that they can control their mana, so of course there’s no reason for them to praise me.
Even though I’m working so hard to……”
If I express joy over it, Father and Mother would scold me anyway.”
The plushie’s turning into a star……!”
I can’t even pull this off, I’m a shame to the Vechter family.”
“I’m no eldest child of the Vechter family like this……”
(This is boring.)
(Being inside the house the whole day is the worst.
Well, I did cause an accidental discharge with my transformation magic, so it can’t be helped.
(If I could control my mana much better, I bet they would forgive me and let me go out too.)
“…...I don’t wanna do this.”
“Why is it that only I have to suffer this much over something like this?”
My tears…… They turned into stars.”
“…… I’ll just crush them later.”
“A little brother?”
“That’s what I said.
According to divinations, he will be born around the next Night of Astrologia.”
“We are thinking of giving him the staff and broom you used back then as hand-me-downs. Relharney, would you be alright with that?”
“Sorry, my magic’s……”
…...Why are you patting my head?”
“Of course you can’t help but be happy.
It’s the first time you’ll have a little brother.”
“You’re happy, aren’t you?”
“…...Sorry, Father, Mother.
I didn’t like the training to control mana.
Even when I managed to control it…… I wasn’t happy.”
“But I’ll do it properly from now on.
I’ll make myself be able to control my mana both inside the house and outside.”
“…...Because I’ll have a little brother.”
"That's a good resolution."
"I want to be a good older brother to him."
"I am sure you can be whatever you want to be.
After all, you are the multi-talented eldest child of the Vechters."
Can I touch your stomach?"
"Father, Mother, it’s weird."
"That I would love someone who I've never even met or know his name more than anything else in the world. "
-fade to black-
"He has no mana?"
"What should we do……!
If word gets out that he is a Vechter child with no mana, who knows what will happen to him…..!"
"What do you mean, what should we do!
The only thing we can do is conceal this fact!"
"Maybe we could have the Egzagranma’s family divine why his body has no mana……"
"We can’t do that!
We are of the Three Families, the “Recorders” representative of the compilation of national history and surveillance.
We must always maintain “non-interference” for the sake of this country. "
"Try having it known that the Vechters asked for help from another distinguished family over personal matters!
None of us will be able to call ourselves by our family name any more!"
"(Why doesn’t Ainrella have any mana at all…)"
"Could it be…
That I didn’t give birth to him right….."
"Don’t say something ridiculous like that!
That’s not your fault!"
(Is it my fault?)
(Did I take mana away from Ainrella?)
That was nothing."
(If I cause a mana rampage, Ainrella can’t protect himself)
(In front from Ainrella…
I must stay the “good brother” no matter what……)
What could I possibly do?"
"I love you. "
"Father and Mother love you from their heart. "
"Everyone loves you. "
"Wouldn’t that be enough?"
(Don’t ask me that.)
(I wouldn’t know either…...)
(This isn't fair.)
(Father and Mother are worried so much about Ainrella, yet he never realizes he’s being treated so preciously.)
(He gets to whine and get away with it while I have to hold it in.
I had to train so much, yet he doesn’t have to do anything.
I even have all these matters I need to deal with as the successor…...)
…...This isn’t a good older brother.
If I want to be a good older brother……
I need to do something for my little brother.
(But since he doesn’t have mana, I can’t even teach him magic.
Even spells that allow me to share mana with him only work temporarily.)
(If only I could make magical gemstones like the Berkberks do.)
(.....This is embarrassing.
I’m a child of Vechter.)
(I heard that there’s a trick to gemstone magic, so it would be difficult for people who can’t use magic in the first place.
In that case, someone who can’t even use beginner spells couldn’t possibly……)
A Magitool, was it?
(A magical tool that can be used even by a child who can’t “really” use magic, a child who has never “really” used magic……)
(Father once mentioned that someone from the Zeddy family had been talking about research relating to the usages of Magitools way back in the day.)
(That person has left the country, but that research is really going on.)
A Magitool. That's it.
(Even if I can’t give him mana, I can give him a Magitool.
…...I can’t make magical gemstones, but I can make the “tool”.)
(I’ll buy just the magical gemstone, and make the external parts myself.
I’m good at “imitating” objects with transformation magic.
The Magitool to “imitate”...... I’ll just buy it somewhere.)
(Latel, I’ve been gaining more and more mana and it’s difficult to control them too……)
"If you could get whatever you want, what would you like?"
"A Starbless Festival present……"
"I want to be wished too.
That it was good for me to have been born."
We haven’t done any Starbless Festival celebrations before. "
"I’ll wish you.
Thank you for being born."
(......If I told Ainrella that I made the magic tool, would Father and Mother know what I did?)
(If that happens, would he be scolded?
Would it cause him trouble?)
(......And they’d find out that I can no longer control mana on my own as well……)
(......I’ll keep it a secret.
If he finds out, I’ll ask him to keep it a secret.
Ainrella would definitely understand why.)
"Because Ainrella’s my little brother."
-fade to black-
I was a fool.
Because I was a fool, I didn’t notice it.
I thought he was a pitiful child.
I thought that he was a child that I, the one with mana had to protect.
Because I love him so much from before he was even born.
That was just something I forced upon him.
I didn’t understand anything about him.
That’s why he’s no longer my little brother…..!
[It’s not just that.]
[The ring I broke.
No matter what is done, it will never go back to the way it was.]
[Since it’s cursed.]
[Unresolved emotions become “curses”.]
[......These are my feelings towards you.]
[......Was I born because I wanted to do something like this?]
That’s not true.
It's not your fault.
I was the one who originally made this.
[That I’m not to blame would be a lie.
You still don’t understand that lies will always be found out, do you?]
If so, then I’ll be a better liar.
I am the eldest child of the Vechters.
Everyone calls me “Faceless”.
I…… can be anything I want to be.
