"She's Kanase Kanon?..."
Kotori asked after looking at the pure and pitiful girl lying on the soft bed, her eyes brimmed with curiosity. She looked at Wu Yan with suspicion.
"Are you sure this is the mission's objective and not just your own personal target?"
Wu Yan's stern look collapsed, he couldn't believe Kotori would say something like that at a time like this.
"She's Kanase Kanon, okay?!"
Wu Yan helplessly continued.
"Why would you even think that?..."
Kotori pursed her lips, she snickered.
"Well, I mean, it's kinda suspicious how your mission objective is to save such a cute girl..."
"The system picked this objective!"
Wu Yan defended himself profusely.
"Yeah? Explain to me why the mission objective is a cute girl?"
Kotori doubtfully snapped back.
"I recall you mentioning that one of your objectives in my world was to put sealing bracelets on me, Yoshino, Tohka, and Kurumi. Now, you need to save Kanase Kanon?"
Kotori cast a doubtful look in Wu Yan's direction.
"You're telling me your mission objectives involve pretty girls in every world you visit?..."
Wu Yan's lip started twitching, his heart also started racing with stress.
Wait, she has a point...
In Hayate the Combat Butler, he entered Hakuo Academy and got to know Hinagiku. That mission was the reason why he ended up with Hinagiku.
In Toaru No Majutsu, he was ordered to save the Sisters on his second quest. Then, his third quest required him to get into a relationship with No.3 Level 5. Eventually, he bagged Shokuhou Misaki, Kinuhata Saiai, Frenda, and Takitsubou Rikou.
As for Date A Live, Kotori already said it.
Aside from SAO, his missions in the other world almost always involved getting close to cute girls, whether directly or indirectly. SAO just happens to be a world where he's supposed to be punished in mandatory quest.
In other words, every world he chose, there was at least a quest where he has to get close to cute girls.
Wu Yan started sweating when he thought about this. He silently thanked system for hooking him up with so many pretty women.
System, you da best.
Wu Yan gave the system a thumbs-up, he also gave Kotori a lame excuse.
"It's just coincidence, the System gave me the missions so I don't have anything to do with how they turned out..."
Kotori looked at Wu Yan intently and then she looked away.
"I thought there was a saying, 'like System like son'?"
"Where did you hear that?"
Wu Yan retorted.
"You totally made that up."
"How do you propose we deal with her?..."
Wu Yan returned to the matter at hand.
He looked at Kanon before he voiced his thought.
"The second mission told me to stop the Heaven Ascension Rite, if that's the case, erasing the ritual circuits from her body should complete the mission..."
Kotori mused, she turned around.
"So you should be able to finish it without a problem, right?"
Kotori knows about Wu Yan's 103,000 grimoires, he's practically a wizard when it comes to spells and magic.
Although his 103,000 grimoires came from Toaru No Majutsu's universe, his arcane knowledge should be able to dispel the circuits installed on Kanon, even if he might not understand the divine circuit completely.
Wu Yan shook his head.
"That was the case before she gathered all the cores for ascension. Strictly speaking, she has already embarked on her angelic ascension, she's no longer a human."
Wu Yan touched the divine circuits she had.
"Kanase isn't in this dimension anymore. Touching her might not do anything but if I attack her, my attacks wo't work."
"Using spells on her count as attacking..."
Wu Yan bitterly laughed.
""I have spells to counter pseudo-angels or even real angels. With a bit of time and some preparations, it shouldn't be a problem to dispel the circuits on her. But, I wonder..."
Kotori furrowed her eyebrows.
"Why are you hesitating?"
"I wonder if I should really cancel her current condition."
Wu Yan said.
"Kanase already fulfilled the ascension conditions, if she successfully evolve, her power will be on par with us."
"It must have been hard to get to this level of divinity saturation. I feel a bit bad to cancel something like this..."
"Ha? Are you out of your mind?"
"Let's put aside if you can complete your second mission, if she becomes a real angel, her consciousness would be wiped out. She also won't stay long in the mortal realm, she would be forcefully taken from this dimension, do you want her to die?!"
"Do I look like I would let that happen?"
Wu Yan rolled his eyes. He sighed.
"Of course, I know what I am talking about, I know a way to keep her in this world while maintaining her free will."
Wu Yan did have a way to keep the Angel Kanon in this world.
In Toaru No Majutsu, humans summon angel on rare occasions but it does happen.
He knows a few spells that can summon angels.
However, it's very hard to do so.
In the original work, Fiamma of the right wouldn't have busted his back trying to summon an angel if one could just call an angel down to earth like they are ordering takeouts. He had to build a fortress and he almost lost his life trying to summon one.
Wu Yan knows how to summon angels, but, those spells are very hard to set up.
Keeping an angel here, however, is easier in comparison.
With her Heaven Ascension Rite almost complete, he only needs to modifiy her circuits to keep her here. That's within his ability.
Modifying the circuits require an advanced understanding of the circuits and spellcraft in general. And, you need a ton of magic power to do so.
With 103,000 grimoires in his head, it's enough to say Wu Yan won't be losing sleep over the divine circuits.
As for magic power, come on, who are we talking about here?
If he wants to keep Kanon here with her mind intact, Wu Yan's the perfect person for the job.
However, he needs to continuously supply Kanon with magic power in order to keep the modified circuit going.
This price is a cheap one to pay. His magic power is also growing so it wouldn't matter in the long run. As for cancelling her divine circuits, well, one swipe of Imagine Breaker and it would be a done deal.
"I wonder what she thinks..."
Wu Yan massaged his temples.
"If she just wants to live a peaceful life, it wouldn't be appropriate to keep her around as an angel..."
"What do you care?"
Kotori shot him.
"If you're going to do it then just do it, ask for her opinion later. You can cancel her circuits if she doesn't want angelic powers!"
"Then I would do double the work..."
Wu Yan bitterly laughed.
"Sounds like a you-problem."
Kotori waved her hands. She went out of the room.
"Well, work hard from now on..."
Wu Yan fell speechless.
