Elysion Online ~The Dragonewt and The Summoner~ - chapter 3
According to the info, summoning a Summoned Beast requires a Summoning Stone. This time, I got a Summoning Stone for free as a Starting Bonus. I immediately placed the Summoning Stone on the ground as written on the instructions, and evoked the Level 1 spell, Magic Stone Summoning.
“Magic Stone Summoning!”
When I cast the spell, a purple magic circle automatically formed around the magic stone. The magic stone floated upward, and was sucked into the magic circle. After that, dazzling yellow lights came out from the Summoning Circle that absorbed the Magic Stone. The light was so dazzling that I had to close my eyes, but the light stopped soon after.
When I opened my eyes, a cute, blue-eyed girl with long, blonde hair stood in the middle of the Magic Circle. The Information Panel popped up again.
[Dragonewt Summoning Success. Please give them a name.]
If I’m not mistaken, a Dragonewt is part of the Dragon Race, right? In other words, this girl is a Demi Human-type Summoned Beast. For me to summon a Dragon right off the bat…
As I froze, the Dragonewt girl talked to me.
“Did you… Summon me?”
“Ah, yeah. I was the one who summoned you.”
Oh crap, I didn’t think she’d talk to me…
“I see. Tell me your name.”
“It’s Se… no. Takuto. My name is Takuto.”
I almost told her my real name. I heard this kind of thing was taboo, so I have to be careful next time.
“Takuto. That’s a nice name!”
The girl smiled honestly and cheerfully. This VR technology is scary; she looked just like a real girl. When I thanked the girl for her words, she says,
“Hey Takuto, give me a name.”
She asked me for a name. I never thought that I would have to give her a name. I looked at her. I got the feeling that she is a bright and honest girl. I looked at her and decided on a name.
“How about Lily?”
Her name was derived from the lily flower. There are a lot of kinds of lilies, but I decided to name her based on the flower language of ordinary lilies. During my part-time job at the florist’s, the lady I was working with told me that in the language of flowers, lilies mean purity, innocence, and chastity, which I thought was appropriate for this girl.
I would like to exclude its other meanings such as charm, pure love, and longing as it’s not appropriate for a first meeting. There are more meanings associated with the flower, but those don’t fit the image of this girl a bit, so I won’t include it.
In other countries, the flower seems to be mostly associated with purity and innocence as well, so there should be no problem.
“Lily… So that’s my name…”
Now I wonder if she’ll like the name I gave her.
“If you don’t like it, just let me know. I’ll do my best to think of another one.”
As I said that, the girl hugged me.
“No, it’s fine! Thank you for the cute name, Takuto!”
“I see. It’s nice to meet you, Lily.”
“Yeah, nice to meet you too, Takuto!”
Oh man, she’s so cute… I have a sister-in-law so I could resist her cuteness to some degree, but if I didn’t, it would be bad.
After I finished naming her, the notice popped out.
[This concludes the Summoner’s tutorial. We will now teleport you to the first town.]
We were enveloped in light. Oooh, so this is teleportation. Finally, we moved into the game world.
When I opened my eyes, we were already at the town square.
“Oooh, so this is the town.”
“It’s the town!”
As I voiced out my thoughts, Lily, who was beside me, imitated the action. She was smiling as if there was something good, so I kept from reproaching her.
As I glanced at our surroundings, I could see that several players were being teleported to the town one after another. If we stayed where we were, we would get in the way, so I pulled Lily and we retreated to one of the back alleys. And just lille hoe the tutorial taught me earlier, I viewed our statuses.
Name : Takuto, Summoner Level 1
Bare-handed Lv1 | Staff Lv1 | Summoning Magic Lv1
Name : Lily, Dragonewt Lv1
Bare-handed Lv1 | One-handed Sword Lv1
I don’t have anything to compare it to, so I don’t really understand how Lily’s strength is uselessly high. As expected of the Dragonkin. As for my status, I think the build is also pretty high. After all, save for my DEF which is at 4, all the other stats are at least a 10 and above.
Next, I looked at the Item Box and found a Novice’s Staff, Beginner’s Potion x 5, Portable Meal x 5, and money worth 5000G inside. It didn’t contain a Sword for Lily, so it seems I’ll have to buy that one. After taking out the Novice’s Staff, my preparation was complete. Next, we have to look for a suitable Sword for Lily, but first…
“Can I help you?”
I spoke up and Lily made a puzzled sound. It seems Lily hasn’t noticed it.
“So you noticed, huh.”
A single female player appeared in front of us. She looked considerably older than me… Kind of like an Office Lady.
“Isn’t what you’re doing stalking?”
“Don’t be so touchy… I’m sorry for stalking you.”
Hmmm… If she apologized right away, then I guess there’s no need for alarm…
“So again, how may I help you?”
“Why don’t we introduce ourselves first? My name is Ruin. I’m a Beta-Tester and my Job-class is a Merchant.”
Since she introduced herself, then I guess I have to tell her my name too.
“I’m Takuto, and this is Lily. I’m a Novice Summoner.”
“… So that girl is a Summoned Beast, after all…”
Hnn? So this was all about Lily?
“Is there something wrong with Lily?”
“No, it’s nothing… I’m just surprised because I haven’t seen a female Summoned Beast even during Beta-Testing.”
So Lily’s existence was rare and she wanted to talk to me.
“I suppose I can’t trouble you to tell me about her race and her stats now, can I?”
That seems to be the case, I thought, but Lily beat me to the punch and cheerfully answered.
“Lily is a Dragonewt!”
There was a strange air of awkwardness between both sides.
“How should I say this…. I’m sorry, okay? I shouldn’t have asked you that.”
“It’s alright, it was Lily who answered anyway… The fault lies on our side this time.”
“Even so, I can’t just leave it like this. If I’m not mistaken, you’re a beginner, aren’t you? Is there anything you need help with?”
I do have a lot of things I need help with, but for now…
“Do you know a good Weapons Shop?”
“Of course. I’ll introduce you to someone I know.”
And so, we followed Ruin-san as she led us to the Weapons Shop.
