Nanomancer Reborn - I've Become A Snow Girl? - Chapter 1043: System Reward
While Misu was wandering around the city, Shiro started to prepare a room for her. While it was unlikely that she’ll be staying the night, it wasn’t bad to just have one just in case.
However, as she was preparing the room, she received a notification.
[Administrator 4 requests a meeting.]
Raising an eyebrow, she was taken aback since the last time she saw him was when they were retrieving the garden shard.
Plus, he was only able to contact her because she had a higher authority rank at that time. Right now, she was lower than him so the restrictions reapplied themselves.
“Did something happen?” Nan Tian asked as Shiro nodded her head.
“Yeah, seems like Administrator 4 wants a meeting.” Shiro replied as Nan Tian blinked his eyes.
“A meeting? What for?”
“Who knows. It might be about the reward the system still hasn’t given me for achieving a tier 8 spell.” Shiro shrugged her shoulders.
Teleporting the two of them back to her room, Shiro accepted the call.
Seeing a screen appear in front of her, she was greeted by the sight of Administrator 4.
Unlike before, he seemed… smarter?
His stubble was gone, he wore a proper suit rather than a blanket over his shoulders and his hair was swept back.
Projecting the screen so that Nan Tian could see as well, Shiro gave him a small wave.
“It’s been a while since I last saw you. And aren’t you dressed for the occasion.” Shiro smiled as Administrator 4 grinned.
“That’s true. I just had a meeting you see, can’t be looking shabby when it’s a meeting that includes all the other administrators.”
“I’m guessing the meeting is about the reward I was supposed to get.” Shiro asked as he nodded his head.
“Indeed. You have no idea how hard it is to pick a reward for you. First of all, you are the first person to ever cast a tier 8 spell when you ‘should’ be tier 6. Even though your class is tier 7, your level is tier 6 and the fact that even with these limitations, you still created a time chamber. Very impressive. And when I say ‘first person to ever cast a tier 8 spell when you should be tier 6’, I have included all the other gardens that have failed.” He clapped his hands as Shiro nodded his head.
“I see… in that case then what reward did you lot decide on for me?” Shiro asked.
“I’m getting to that. And since you’re the first ever person to accomplish this, both the administrators and the system knew that the reward had to be good. But at the same time, you have already broken the balance as a tier 7 being. Demi Gods shouldn’t be appearing at this time but not only have you become one, Demi Gods and gods are moving because of you. The recent battle in the realm of gods only proves this. Gaia, Nyx, Tartarus. Three primordial gods were injured quite heavily as the consequence. Unfortunately, since they were the ones to make the first move, the system had to act against them.” He sighed as Shiro narrowed her eyes.
“Now, I know you’re upset about this so part of the reward for you this time is to help them recover. Gaia should be feeling much better and if I’m familiar with how she acts around you, she should be contacting you soon.”
“That’s a relief. Since you mentioned that healing them was just a ‘part’ of my reward, what’s the rest?” Shiro asked curiously since this was already a good reward. With how injured Gaia and the others were, she would have been happy with just this.
“The second part is the best part. You have no idea how hard I had to fight for a reward this good. You see, out of all the administrators, a lot and I mean, A LOT of them didn’t want to give you this but since you have achieved something of this standard, the system eventually agreed since it was the only reward suitable for you without being too over the top.”
“What do you mean by too over the top?”
“I’m glad you asked. A reward that could be described as the purge feature. With this, you can purge anyone or a group of people who the system has linked itself to.” Administrator 4 smiled darkly as Shiro widened her eyes.
“And yes, even gods. Aekari, Aria, Watchman. The purge will allow you to erase all signs of their existence with a single trigger. Of course, this reward is reserved only for the master of the system and those it chooses to bestow this too. So you probably won’t ever see it happen.” Administrator 4 shrugged.
“Then why tell me about it.” Shiro rolled her eyes.
“Just mentioning it so that you know what’s around. Should you ever get something where it allows you to choose anything you want, and I mean ‘anything’ you can probably choose this and get away with it. Regardless, let’s go back to the main topic. The reward for you had to be something worth the accomplishment of a tier 8 while also not violating the threshold of power that this world can handle. Therefore, we have agreed to let you obtain something no others have. A second core divinity.” Administrator 4 smiled and waved his hand. Suddenly, a golden orb appeared above his palm.
“You see, every god has a core divinity. It’s their strongest power. However, there are times where they are known by more than one divinity. These are formerly known as support divinities as they are ones that others can get. Most of the time, demi gods ascend to obtain a support divinity as their core divinity and a select few actually obtain the core divinity. For example, the core divinity of light is only reserved for the origin of light while the divinity that Aria and Aekari have obtained is support versions of this. Your friend, Nan Tian, is also on the path to potentially obtaining a support version of the light divinity.” He explained as Shiro furrowed her brows.
“Then is Nanobots a support divinity?” Shiro asked as Administrator 4 nodded his head.
“Yes. It is a support divinity but it’s rather strong. It’s on the verge of becoming its own core divinity that’s why I vouched for not letting you upgrade your divinity but rather obtain a second one. Helping you ‘upgrade’ something that would probably happen later was a waste.”
“But I thought I was the only one who had this divinity. What’s the original version of this then? If my divinity was to evolve to a core divinity, would it be the same?” Shiro asked as administrator 4 thought about it for a moment before opening his mouth.
“You see, your nanobot divinity is a branch of two very powerful divinities.” Administrator 4 smiled.
“And that is?”
“Origin of Creation and Origin of Destruction. Just as how your nanobots can create things, they can also completely destroy them. It is a branch of these two core principles when the world was created and with Chaos granting you her blessings, your divinity is now leaning towards the Destruction side.”
Hearing this, Shiro couldn’t help but stay silent as she thought back to her talk with Kuromi.
About how she might give becoming a goddess of creation a try.
Now that she had found out nanobots was a branch of these two core divinities, the joke might become reality.
“When your divinity evolves into a core divinity, its power will be upgraded to a whole new level since core divinities are in a whole new realm to support divinities. With this reward, you are now allowed two core divinities. Of course, what that core divinity is you don’t know yet. When you ascend properly as a tier 8, it’ll seek out something that can become a core or you can hold onto it. It’s up to you. But as it is not a physical reward, it’ll bind itself to your soul for now.”
Just as he finished saying this, he waved his hand and the golden orb disappeared before reappearing in front of Shiro.
Sensing the mass of divine energy radiating from this orb, she hesitantly reached out and touched it with her finger.
Suddenly, the orb shattered to countless motes of lights that were absorbed into her body.
“Now that you have gotten your reward. My time in this call is about to end. Before I go, I’ll tell you about the final request that the system had granted me or rather, you.”
“What request is that?” Shiro asked since the two things she had received were already more than enough.
“The system is preserving Isilia’s and Edvimar’s soul. Neither of them have been destroyed or reincarnated. They’re in a stasis right now.” Administrator 4 smiled as he ended the call.
“Are you sure you wanted to go that far?” Another voice spoke up as Administrator four chuckled.
“Yes. I’m a fan after all.”
“But to go that far for two souls is…”
“If I didn’t, they would have been wiped clean and reincarnated. Still, at least you’re the one who has to do this old friend.” Administrator 4 chuckled as the other person sighed.
“I f*cking hate you. You won’t remember anything about her but I’ll support Shiro in your place. You’ll become the neutral party once more.”
“I know.” Administrator 4 smiled.
