|The Lambent Flower is a plant that emits light.
This plant has a special characteristic, in that it can convert and accumulate any nutrient as magical energy.
And when it blooms, it releases all the accumulated power at once, and gives off a powerful glow.
As soon as it starts flowering, the flower petals will continuously release magical energy, which causes it to wither quickly, and makes breeding very difficult.
Even in our own botanical gardens, there are but a few.
For today’s alchemy experiment, we’ll be using nectar collected from the Lambent Flower.
It goes without saying, but the nectar of this flower is extraordinarily valuable. Puppies, make sure to carefully take some from the jar with a syringe...
|* glass breaking sound *|
|The puppy that barked just now...
Epel Felmier from Pomefiore, isn’t it?
If you have a question, then shut up and raise your hand.
|It’s not a question, but, uh..., uhm...
I bumped my elbow and... I knocked over the jar with the Lambent Flower’s nectar.
This, you’ve spilled more than half of it!!
I-it was an honest mista...
|Classmate A||A~aah... now you’ve done it. My condolences, Epel.|
|One of my senpai told me “If you anger Crewel-sensei, your life as a person is over”.
Some kid made a careless mistake, and he “disciplined” him till he was lying on the floor weeping.
|Th-that’s an exaggeration...|
|An exaggeration. Yes, it’s an exaggeration.
I absolutely understand your feelings.
Talking in such a way after you wasted valuable laboratory ingredients……..
You got some nerve, you mutt!!!!!!!!
|I-i’m sorry….. Very sorry! It wasn’t on purpose…..|
A bad boy who just makes excuses needs to be punished.
The spilled nectar was equivalent to one teacup. Collect that much, and not a drop less.
The deadline... Well, let’s say you have two months. If you don’t collect it by then...
Well, I think you understand what’ll happen, right?
B-but, I got a chance to recover from this. I gotta try my darndest!
Yes. I understand. I will collect as much nectar as was wasted, and bring it with me.
|Classmate B||... Isn’t that impossible for Epel? He looks like he’d start shrieking just from seeing an insect.|
|Classmate C||It’d be better if he just said “I can’t do it” now. The fancy lad has too much pride.|
|Classmate A||Hey, you’re going too far!
What would you do if the sheltered brat starts crying? Hahaha.
|Botanical Garden - Temperate Zone|
|I will absolutely collect the nectar of the Lambent Flower!!
... is what I vowed 1 week ago. I’m checking up on the flowers in the botanical garden every day but...
There are only five flowers here, and all of them are still buds. It has to bloom for you to collect the nectar...
And there are only 5 flowers in the first place; if they did flower I wouldn’t be able to collect even one spoonful of nectar.
And I need one tea-cup... What should I do?
|Oh hoh~? I found Cutie-chan from Pomefiore!|
|This voice... Of course, it’s Cater-san.
I’ve told you every time…. It’s not Cutie-chan. It’s Epel.
|Yeah, yeah, you’re cute again today ♪
You feel like starting MagiCam yet? I’ll teach you how.
I told you before, but I think your cuteness is strong enough to turn you into an influencer~
|Hah. Right now, I... That’s the farthest thing from my mind.|
|How come? You’re pulling a real gloomy face.|
|* Epel explains to Cater *|
|Ah, you poor thing. This whole thing was impossible from the get-go.|
|It takes about two, maybe three years for the Lambent Flower to bloom after budding.|
|EH!? Tw, two, three years!?|
|That’s about how long it takes for the necessary magic power to build up.
So I don’t think there’s any way for you to fill up a teacup in just two months.
|Bu-but then why did Crewel-sensei instruct me to collect nectar within two months?|
|Well, Crewel-sensei lives by the creed: “Discipline your dog until it stops biting”.|
|He’s probably waiting for Epel-chan to come crying like, “it’s impossible~”.|
|But, but then this... he was being cruel right from the beginning!?|
|You got it~ ♪
Well, whether it’s cruelty or his own way of educating...huh?
Epel-chan, are you listening?
|I... I, when it comes to studying, I’m not very good... And of course I’m going to mess up but, I was going to recover properly...
So, I wanted to be recognized...
Since I received another chance, I thought I’d give my all...
Despite all that, my teacher was just being cruel... and my classmates were making fun of me... Like this...
|Eh, could it be he got a huge mental shock!?|
|This, I... I... Everyone... Hn!|
|Hey-, Epel-chan don’t cry...|
|...I’m definitely going to prove them wrong!!!!!!|
Cou-could it be Epel-chan got a surprisingly strong competitive spirit...?
|I’m, not a mutt, or, some spoiled brat!|
|Even though I think it’d be better to just apologize quickly~. Since you’re playing an impossible game to start with...|
|It can’t be impossible. I’m going to leave them all speechless!|
|Oh, Epel-chan, are you headed back? Then let’s head to the Mostro Lounge together ♪
How about making your MagiCam debut by taking a selfie with me with a lovely Café as our backdrop?
|Cater, san... Excuse me. I can’t do today. I have to go to the botanical garden.|
|The botanical garden...Ehh!!
No way, are you still trying to collect the Lambent Flower’s nectar to try and change Crewel-sensei’s mind?
|Yes. Of course!
My “atonement” for spilling the valuable nectar... I have to show it to him.
|You don’t have to be that stubborn….. It was unreasonable to ask you that of you to begin with.
If you apologize quickly, the damage won’t be as bad.
Since Crewel-sensei is pretty scary though, how about I come with you?
|Stop it! I already told you “it can’t be impossible”.|
|Huh? What do you mean….. ?|
|Fufu... Please follow me then. I’ll show you something good.|
|Botanical Garden - Temperate Zone|
|Where are we going, Epel-chan? We’ve already gone pretty far into the botanical garden...
Eh, what’s with this place... Wha..Whaaaaaaaaat~!?
All over the flowerbeds! There are Lambent Flowers growing everywhere~!?
Huh, before there were only five right? How many hundreds are there here?
On top of that, they look so healthy and the flowers are already in bloom...No way...
What the heck did you do!?
|Hehe-. I could do this before breakfa… Ah! I mean it’s easy!
Cater-san, you’re the one that taught me.
It takes time for the Lambent Flower to accumulate enough magical power bloom.
|I did say that...|
|And because of that, I remembered what Crewel-sensei said during class.|
|* FLASHBACK *|
|This plant has a special characteristic, in that it can convert and accumulate any nutrient as magical energy.
And when it blooms, it releases all the accumulated power at once, giving off a powerful glow.
|* END FLASHBACK *|
|So, I figured if I kept nourishing it with a lot of nutrients, it should accumulate a lot of magical power and bloom quickly!
...Right? That’s what I thought.
But, using regular commercially available fertilizer wouldn’t work….
That’s why I decided to use a special fertilizer chock-full of nutrients every single day.
|A special fertilizer?|
|I made it myself.|
|You say that in the same cute tone as if you were talking about baking some sweets...
Did I hear that right, fertilizer? Made by Epel-chan?
|Yup! I put it all in this bag...|
Cough... agh... my nose and my eyes are stinging!!!!!
What is that terrible smell!?
|Ahaha. It’s fertilizer, isn’t it obvious that it would smell?|
|It’s not obvious!! Epel-chan, you’re okay with this?|
|Rather than okay, it’s what I grew up... No, uh, I mean gardening... well, I’ve grown used to it.
You know, you can find a bunch of fertilizer ingredients at this school! If you go to the cafeteria there’s all kinds of raw garbage...
|And the most important ingredient for this special fertilizer...
|Hor... eh, what?
I just heard a word that I never imagined I’d hear coming out of the ephemeral Epel-chan’s mouth.
|Horse shit. A horse’s poop. I’ve been receiving it every day from the equestrian club.
The horses in this school eat good food, so they helped me out a bunch every day.
Horse shit isn’t just great for the plants, but it also nurtures the soil, so it makes the best fertilizer!
|N-, No matter how many times you keep repeating it. Cay-kun’s confused...
Eeh, so, in summary, Epel-chan has been collecting raw garbage and horse dung every day for the past two months...
And you mixed it up to make a stinky fertilizer and the Lambent Flowers started to bloom at an explosively fast rate... correct?
|Epel-chan, you are waaaaaaaaaay out there! That gusty willpower doesn’t match your face at all!?
You’ve totes moved me!
|I thought I heard something noisy, what a rare duo. What on earth are you doing in the botanical garden?
Hm? Impossible, this flower blooming in the flowerbeds... is that the Lambent Flower!?
|Crewel-sensei….. What do you think? These are the Lambent Flowers I raised myself!
I hope to be able to deliver a teacup of honey to you soon…. Please wait a little bit longer.
Well, all you need is just one teacup, right?
|...fufu, hahaha! I was so sure you’d tuck your tail between your legs and let out some miserable barks... But you’ve made it, huh.
You raised the Lambent Flower, which withers so quickly, that couldn’t have been done with any run-of-the-mill effort.
...You’re a more determined puppy than I thought.
Good boy, Epel Felmier.
|Thank you... !|
|However, this does not mean that I will go easy on you for your class and exam evaluations.
You’ve merely made it into the same cage as the other puppies.
All you’ve done is made up for the deficit before.
|I understand. I will continue to give my best from here on.|
|A good response...Keep that up, and you’ll rise above the other students.|
|* Crewel exits *|
|...He said it, Crewel-sensei’s No.1 compliment "Good Boy”!|
|Gratz, gratz ♪ Well, in this case...
The sparkly Lambent Flowers with the smiling Epel-chan. A sight so photogenic we don’t even need any filters.
Hn~, how about we taking this moment to make you a MagiCam account? You’ll definitely go viral.
|Sorry. After this, I’ll go to the library... and I’ll study!
If I keep this up for alchemy class... maybe I could even surpass the Dorm Leader!?
Well then, Cater-san. Excuse me!
|Eh~! Don’t be so cold! I can help you study~!|
