Reesha then left to talk with the ones in charge of the tournament to see how to settle matters.
During that time, Schenna and those with her headed to the east side, where they saw both adventurers and elves heading to the hot springs together.
“Hot springs huh. The ones in Shalteux aren’t bad, but I wonder how the ones here are.”
Schenna took a look at the ailments the hot springs helped with, which were listed on a sign: Fractures, burns, joint pain, and fatigue. Basically everything adventurers needed.
“Should we come back here once we’re together with the rest?”
“That sounds good! I’m already getting all sweaty, so it’ll be just perfect.”
Luthors suggested they do that and Petra agreed to it, but Schenna just looked at the two and stayed silent in embarrassment.
The two of them instantly knew what she was thinking about.
“I don’t really mind though? Or rather, even if you told me to undress in front of you I wouldn’t mind…”
Schenna was slightly glad Petra was so open-minded, but Schenna would never make such an unreasonable demand from her.
“You don’t have to worry about little things like that. I always go to the hot springs in Shalteux together with Kishana, so you should come together every once in a while as well.”
Many of her troubles would be gone if she could do that.
Schenna would always think of the times when no one else would be in the hot springs when she went.
There had also been times when a group of adventurers tried to peep on her, but it had not happened that often now that she was more careful and tried to distance herself from the hot springs.
“…Okay, I get it. We’ll all go to the hot springs together, and we’ll have lunch after that.”
Schenna finally gave in and the two of them seemed happy with her decision.
Apart from the hot springs, there was also a book store some of Sareenea’s employees had opened there. And while it was nowhere as large as Sareenea’s underground collection, apart from the obvious manga, they also sold spell books and maps there.
“Do you think they have the continuation to the manga we read the other day?”
“We found that one in Sareenea’s basement so I don’t know if it would be for sale.”
Schenna decided to ask the clerk elf, but apparently, they did not sell that one.
It was one that only existed in the basement.
“Nothing we can do then. We can only go buy it from Sareenea next time we visit her.”
“It’s a shame but we have no choice. Should we see if there’s anything else in the store though?”
“Sure. And Petra, if you find anything you like, I can buy it for you.”
“Ah… Thank you very much!”
Petra expressed her gratitude and the three began searching for a manga they liked.
Schenna headed to the shelves with fantasy ones and looked for the recommendations that could be read there. She tried reading different ones and liked all of them, so in the end, she bought one volume of every series she tried.
Afterward, they met up in the cashier line, where they all combined the books they wanted to buy and Schenna got ready to pay for them.
When it was almost her turn to pay, Grana showed up with multiple books for himself.
“Oh, Grana. I’m about to pay for Luthors and Petra, give me your books and I’ll pay for you as well.”
“Better not… these magic books are pretty expensive, I don’t want you to have to pay for them.”
Grana just muttered as he insisted on paying for them himself.
Schenna admired Grana’s attitude, even though he was already a master at healing and supportive magic.

“That’s really admirable! I wish I could study as hard and tirelessly as you. We’re always relying on your magic already, so this is the least I can do for you.”
“It’s really okay… The sentiment is plenty enough for me.”
Schenna tried to take his books by force, but Grana evaded her in a panic.
By then Schenna began feeling suspicious about his behavior, but Luthors butted in and effortlessly took the books away from him.
“‘The Truth of Healing Magic’, ‘The Forbidden Love Story of Two Female Knights’, ‘The Equilibrium Between Ancestral and Modern Magic’, huh. I also wish I could learn from your search for knowledge.”
Luthors read out loud the titles of the books Grana was holding, and there was one title that clearly did not belong with the others.
Grana had tried to slip one volume of doujinshi between two magic tomes.
And it painted a really bad picture of him now.
“…I…I think my magic is enough for now I guess ahahah… I’ll return the books to their shelves.”
He who was once called a Demon King, was now hunching down in embarrassment as he returned the magic tomes and the doujinshi he had tried to slip by to their respective shelves.
