Black Healer 005 – Time to try magic!

In Another World, I’m Called the Black Healer

Chapter 5: Time to try magic!

TN: wow surprise!! 2 chapters in 1 day :O

It’s all about magic. Magic.
If I can’t use magic, then I won’t be able to do anything here.

After checking my surroundings one more time to be sure I was safe, I tried to use magic.

I lifted my right arm and opened my hands, and spoke the name of a beginner spell in Dragon Quest.


*shiiiiinn~* (wind sounds)

Ugh. This is embarrassing.

Seriously. A 22 year old girl saying [Blaze] when she’s all alone.
It reminds me of that time my brother caught me in my room saying [Kamehameha!] when I was a little girl.

I’d better check the menu.


– Kanzaki Misuzu –
HP (Vitality): 586/586
MP (Spirit): 728/728

Race: Human
Age: 22
Title: [Traveler from Another World]


My MP didn’t change.
Did [Blaze] not count?
Can I not use magic? Or maybe, the [Blaze] incantation just doesn’t work.

It seems rather silly, but maybe I didn’t say it with enough of a fighting spirit?
I mean, it’s kind of embarrassing to say it loudly, you know…
I whispered because I didn’t really think about it.
Maybe it’s not enough to just say the words.

Fuu–. Haaa–.

Taking a deep breath helped me calm down.

First of all, I should think about how magic works.

It’s like those breathing exercises in yoga.
In the same way that you manage the flow of your body’s [Ki], the flow of magic should also be clearly visualized.
Gather the heat from my body and focus it in my hand, then release it.

The magic is what I want it to be. Flame.
In my head, I tried to visualize [Blaze].

The image of flames. A blazing, growing fire.

Without losing the image of fire, I raised my hand one more time.


The heat in my body gathered in a swirl around my hand, and shot out in one burst.


A surprisingly big flame burst forward.
In an instant, the grass was incinerated.

Too much!
I used magic, but I didn’t know my limits so I just let it all out.

Centered around where I stood, an area about as big as six rooms or so was totally scorched.
Wow-, sorry. I burned all this for no reason.
Luckily, the fire didn’t spread, and quickly went out. The fresh scent of the meadow was mixed with smoke.

I’ll check the menu again.


– Kanzaki Misuzu –
HP (Vitality): 586/586
MP (Spirit): 708/728

Race: Human
Age: 22
Occupation: Magician
Attributes: [Fire]
Title: [Traveler from Another World]


A few things changed. First, my MP. Looks like that fire ability costed 20 MP.
Also, my occupation became “Magician”. Is it because I can use magic?

My attribute is [Fire]. That refers to the type of spells I can use, right?

With this, it looks like I really can use magic.

My [Blaze] costed 20, right?
A smaller flame should use less.

My remaining 708 MP should last me a while, I hope.
If I were in Dragon Quest this level of MP would be end-game.

I kinda want to head to the nearest village.
I wonder how long it’ll take me to reach somewhere that’s safe.
If I run out of MP, it’ll be like having paper armor. I’ll have to use it sparingly and as efficiently as possible.
