Shizuka's greatest concern was that each time she fought at full power, her
weight increased. It was because the giant dragon residing inside Shizuka's body
distorted space, so actually it wasn't like she gained any weight. However, a girl's
instinct perceived the creaking of the floor as a threat. Even if it was for the sake
of protecting her friends, it was a serious problem.
"Uncle Alu^ , can't you do something about the space distortion?"
"I would really like to do so, but the correction of space is an extremely
advanced magic. Rather than starting to recover my magical power, the
restoration itself would be slowed even more."
"That's... We were all going to go to the beach, but at this rate I will be the only
one who won't be able to swim."
Shizuka was particular about her weight because of the talk that everyone
would go to the beach together. It would be a problem if she wanted to swim
then ended sinking in the water. Or when walking on the sandy beach, she didn't
want to imagine that she would be the only one to have her feet sink into the

"It's not fine! Sanae-chan, try imagining me being the only one walking at the
bottom of the sea!"
"Umm... Isn't that cool?"
"Well, if it's really that's unpleasant, why don't you try asking them?"
Unable to overlook the depressed Shizuka, Sanae pointed at the corner of the
room. There, Ruth and Clan were chatting cheerfully.
"I see! Ruth-san, Clan-san!"
"What is it?"
"Is it possible to decrease my weight with the power of science!?"
"Hmm, not your diet, but correcting the space distortion?"
"There is nothing that can't be done."
At the positive answer, Shizuka unintentionally leaned forward. Thereupon,
Clan nodded deeply.
"To negate the distortion field created by Alunaya-san, we only need to create
a negative distortion field."
"Please do it!"
"I don't mind. Is it fine if it works for approximately ten seconds?"
"Eh!? T-Ten seconds!?"
Those unexpected words made Shizuka stare in wonder. Then Ruth took over
the unfortunate conversation.
"...The energy released by Alunaya-sama is powerful, a small amount of energy
would never suffice. However, to use that amount energy, the batteries wouldn't
Considering the purpose, remodelling a personal barrier generator would be
the best. However, the batteries used wouldn't be able to keep up with the
distortion created by Alunaya. In the end, the problem was that Alunaya was too
"Give up and walk at the bottom of the sea"
It seemed that Shizuka's sea bathing would end up with her walking at the
bottom of the sea.
