T.L Enjoy chapter 7. I will try to translate more frequently. But no hard promise ~
7th Meal: Inheritance
Currently… I am using all my strength, trying to carry the bodies of the dead.
Spirit-chan requested this of me yesterday.
Since she is a spirit, she could not touch physical objects as she would only pass through them.
It sure is inconvenient being a spirit.
[Haah, haah… do it, I can do it] (T.L Not exactly sure how to translate this sound effect properly)
This is tiring! As there are dead bodies all around the village, I have been running around trying to gather them.
And finally… after working for three days, I managed to gather all the bodies lying around the village into the center of the village.
Well~ It was hard work! But I am great! I worked extremely hard!
After completing this request, it was already night time.
Well~, as I did a lot of work today… so (Nourishment)
[Fui~…Peachy sensei! Welcome]
I started creating peachy from my hand.
Just wait for me… The peachy which I always said was delicious appeared from a dazzling light.
I immediately started eating. Taking a bite, chewing it… and swallowing it!
[After a day of work, this feeling is the best…]
I placed one hand on my back and said an uncle-like statement.
… In actual fact, my soul is that of an uncle so there should be nothing wrong with this?
[Well, well… for some reason, I feel that statement is something only a middle age uncle would say]
… Suddenly, a hand appears and rubbed my head. The owner of that hand is Eltina, who came over to talk to me.
I felt a cool sensation being transmitted onto my head.
There is no helping it since she is a spirit?
[Probably, I think this is… all of it]
Eltina-san looked slightly lonely while she thanked me as she smiled faintly.
Maa~…this is natural seeing the bodies of her companions.
Actually, Eltina is also one of the dead and became a spirit now.
[…Well then, we should make a grave and bury them]
I looked at Eltina’s face and nodded.
[Well…then, since you completed my request, I must give you a reward]
Eltina-san placed her hand on top of my head and started gathering an unbelievable amount of energy.
Uwaaaaa!? Will it be alright!?
Surely this is not… [You got tricked!? Stupid! Activating cross thunder!]
Too bad! Your adventure ends now! …Ah, it won’t not turn out like that, right?
[…From now on, my knowledge and magic, you will inherit them]
Three day ago, I roughly explained my circumstance.
From the matter of me leaving the forest, to me not being able to use magic and also having no memories… I told her all of it.
Also the matter of me not having a name. Being naked… I am naked because of various circumstances.
Since I will see her every night, it would be extremely inconvenient not having a name.
I decided to name myself Nanashi.
[Nanashi-chan… are you alright? Is it painful?… Actually, this is also my first time using this magic]
…. Will there be any problem?
[The first time… and also my last time using this magic. I will definitely succeed!]
Not long after, my head was surrounded by a vortex of light.
The light slowly approached my head… and entered.
Fuoooooah!? What is that!?
Knowledge that I never knew about including this world’s magic, language as well as information regarding this world. There are various kinds of information.
Then… information regarding Eltina-san, from her birth until her death.
All the experience that she went through… ooh, it’s super hard.
Then… all the secrets thoughts she kept in her heart… I also inherited it.
[…With this, the inheritance is completed]
After the inheritance was completed, Eltina-san’s… tears started flowing.
[Sorry… Nanashi-chan. Regarding this magic, not only my knowledge, you also inherited my memories. All those memories must be unpleasant]
Aah, feeling of unhappiness.
Those bastard that Eltina hated to the core, I must punish them if I find them.
I will do my best to achieve it, peachy sensei.
[It is alright, there is no problem… Eltina-san]
I used… and clearly it is, this world language to reply.
With this, there are no problem with communication! Myself, I did it!
[That is great, the magic succeeded without a problem…]
This time…Eltina-san breathed with a sign of relief.
Then, she told me this.
[Well then… it is about time for me to leave this world]
[Eh.. are you really leaving?]
Eltina-san nodded sadly.
However, there are no longer any signs of regret in her eyes.
[The matters chaining me to this world, have all been resolved by Nanashi-chan…]
Eltina-san nodded her head and continued speaking.
[Un,un… I am already dead. I have already been dead for 5 years now… so it would not be strange for me to become an evil spirit]
Eltina’s body gradually started fading until I could not see her at all.
She really achieved enlightenment!?
Although the time is short, I have been in your care.
This makes me unwilling to part with her, but it will be cruel if I wished for more.
That… such a terrible experience.
Facing such a cruel matter, there is no way I have any solutions.
…Ah, I remembered! There is one thing I did not inherit.
I attempted to talk to Eltina-san which has already started disappearing.
[Eltina-san! I… do not have a real name. Eltina-san, your name… could I… inherit it?]
I do not have a name.
I hate deciding my own name as I do not have any feelings for such a name.
Hence… please let me inherit the name of the one that is leaving this world…
I… felt that Eltina-san was watching me once again
[Thank you very much… thank you very much… from now on, you name is Eltina Ranford Etil]
I smiled happily as tears flowed from my eyes. The previous owner of the name, Eltina, really disappeared this time.
Although… we only interacted for a short three days.
However, this… to me, is also an important three days.
Looking at the sky, I saw that it is filled with stars.
That the previous Eltina, could have a long and peaceful slumber.
I am an elf.
My name is Eltina Ranford Etil
I inherited the name, knowledge, magic and memories of the previous Eltina.
