The next day.
It was supposed to be a village holiday in Hazama Village.
We've over-exploited the area around the village. ......
A radius of about 50 meters around the village has already been cleared. It seems that the villagers were having too much fun chopping down the forest with axes and hoes that had increased their penetrating power. "Yeah! Everyone was wielding their axes with glee. .......
The reason we were able to clear the forest so quickly was because of the synergistic effect of the wards and the Naming Breath.
I didn't see this coming either. .......
Good morning. Brother Shoma.
While I was washing my face by the well, Lisette came over.
"Good morning. Lysette.
It's Yukino, but she seems to have slept well after that.
Haruka's with him now. I think you should let him rest for a while.
I nodded back at Lisette's words.
Yukino has the ability of the Ice Witch in this world. Unlike me, she's an official summoner, so I'm sure she can use some really cool magic.
As I want to keep protecting the village until the end of the turbulent times, I really want her to be there.
Well, that's up to you, I guess. If he gives up on the True Lord and decides to go on a journey to end the turbulent world, there's no stopping him.
I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will help you. Lysette.
I'm sure you'll be able to understand why.
I changed the subject.
It's about two and a half days from here to the next village with the ...... wagons.
Yes. I think the business meeting in the neighboring village will have started by now.
Then Lisette turned her gaze to the south.
Three days ago, Haruka's uncle left the village with a wagon. He was going to sell the large amount of wood from the clearing of the forest to a nearby village. No matter how many fields we planted, without seedlings, there was nothing we could do. The first step was to negotiate with the nearby village and exchange the wood for seedlings and seed potatoes.
...... I think it would be faster for me to store the wood in the King's Vessel and fly to the next village.
"Didn't I tell you about this before? I told you before, didn't I, that the people of the neighboring village would be too surprised by your skills to negotiate with you.
I could have asked Garunga and the others to leave with an empty wagon and I could have gone to the rendezvous point to get some wood.
"That's why Shoma's ability is a village secret. What kind of people would ask for the king's help for a mere business? You know.
He got angry.
"And I've got good men guarding me. Thieves are no match for them.
I've also told them to throw away the wood and run for it.
Didn't you also give him your enchanted weapon?
That's for testing. When I was cultivating the village, I noticed that the duration was extended.
The duration of the Naming Breath is about half a day.
However, the effect is extended if you are inside a ward that uses a dragon vein. This is something I noticed while exploring. The penetrating power of an axe or a hoe does not diminish for a long time.
Dragon Vein and Add Naming Attribute are both skills given to me by the Dragon Emperor.
I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.
"So Uncle Garunga and the others will be fine. Brother. Unless something happens to them.
"Unless something goes wrong.
For example, if they're stronger than bandits.
I'm sure you'll be fine.
I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. ...... Well, there's no way that's going to happen. .......
I'm not sure what to say. I'm not sure what to make of it.
I'm not sure what to do.
I'll check it out right away! "I'll check it out right away!
"Brother Shoma! Lysette will be with you!
Lysette hugged me around the waist.
After confirming this, I flew up on the wings of the Flying Seed Awakening.
About 30 meters up in the sky.
From there, I looked to the southwest and saw faint flames and black smoke rising from the sky.
The location was at the end of the road leading to the territory of the "Kittle Patriarch".
It's hard to see clearly, hidden by the forest and the rocks, but there must be a village over there.
This is where the Oni wagons and Mr. Garunga are negotiating the sale of wood...
"Is the village under attack?
Garunga's wagon must be near the village. Either you'll be caught in the middle of it,...... or if you're in the middle of negotiations, you're fighting with the villagers,...... either way, you can't just leave them there.
....... It's my day off.
I'm going on a reconnaissance and rescue mission! Tell everyone in the village that!
I lowered my altitude and told the village watchman.
I lowered my altitude and told the village guard, "And tell Haruka to take care of Yukino. Tell her to take care of Yukino. She's sick, so make sure she gets everything she wants and needs.
Also, tell her that Lisette will be accompanying her brother.
After saying that, Lysette and I took off in the direction of the southwest.
I'm not sure what to say. Where are your brother and sister Liz?
After a while, Haruka came to the village square.
When she saw the crowd of villagers, she rolled her eyes.
What's going on? Where are you two?
"I saw them flying to the southwest...
Suddenly, a voice came from above Haruka and the others.
"A neighboring village not far from the territory of the Kittle Patriarch.
"The king saw a fire burning there...
When Haruka looked up, she saw two harpies, Leroy and Leroy, flying over the village.
"I wouldn't lie to the King's sister-in-law.
"Leroy and Leroy have come to watch the king sleep.
Of course, only with your consent.
"We wanted to replenish the king's reserves.
"And then I saw him fly away.
It's the ...... moment of a lifetime. I never thought I'd sleep in at a time like this.
Haruka let out a long sigh.
The reason I overslept was because I was taking care of Yukino,.......
But after Shoma chased away the nightmares, Yukino's condition calmed down and she slept soundly until morning. Haruka, who was sleeping soundly on the same futon, could tell.
In the end, all Haruka did was to replace the wet cloth on Yukino's head.
Even so, I'm sure the "big brother" will praise her, but...
"Leroy, Leroy! Please. Carry me to your brother!
Haruka has ordered me to take care of Yukino. He's sick, so make sure he gets what he wants and needs as much as possible.
The guard's voice came from above the city walls.
The king said he would come back soon to help Garunga and the others. ...... I'm sure they'll be fine.
"That may be so, but ......
I'm worried about you too, brother.
In the event that you're looking for the best way to get the most out of your business, you'll be able to find the best way to get the most out of your business.
But ...... you're right. I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.
And besides, Yukino and I have just become friends. You should take advantage of this opportunity to get to know her better. Then maybe she can tell me about the world she was in. You and Yukino are from the same world, so if you know what Yukino likes, you can also know what you like.
I'll think of something that will make you feel at home when you come back from battle. Yeah.
With that in mind, Haruka headed to the village chief's mansion...
"The enemy has arrived. ......?
Yukino in her nightgown was standing in the doorway of the house.
"Whoa! No, Yukino. You're not in top form yet. You need to sleep.
There's a battle going on, isn't there? Nearby.
Yukino grabbed Haruka by the hem of her dress and asked.
I'm sure you'll be fine, but your brother and sister are on their way ....... I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
Can you take me to that place?
No. I'm not gonna let a sick man fight.
I'm not going to fight.
Yukino shook her head at Haruka's question.
I don't have enough combat experience yet. I've never been in a fight before, so I want to see what this world is like. I want to be able to be of use to the people of this village.
I'm sure you'll agree that it's a great idea. In addition, I might be able to become the Cocytus Witch of the Permafrost.
"............ hmmm? I'm not sure what to say.
Haruka nodded her head.
Please! I'd like to grow more. I'm not sure what to do with it. I'm an official summoner, summoned to end this turbulent world. I need to awaken to a far higher level...
Yukino clenched her fists and burst into tears.
Haruka, with a troubled look on her face, ruffled her red hair.
(......) What should I do? I'm not sure what to do. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a fan of your work.
Haruka puts her hand on Yukino's forehead - her temperature is normal.
I'm sure you'll agree with me.
He shoves his hand under Yukino's collar and makes her scream, "Aah! I stick my hand under Yukino's collar and check her armpit fever, making her scream "ahhh!
I'm feeling better.
(Is it okay if I just show you the village from afar? ......)
Thinking about it, Haruka shook her head.
I can't do it. Because there are only two harpies. There are only two Harpies, and only one of them can carry me. I can't let Yukino go alone. ......
"I'm here to play." "Where's the king?
"Hey! The king is Leroy's, and Leroy will take his love.
There's more of them.
At this moment, two more harpies came to visit.
Four in total. It's enough to carry Haruka and Yukino.
"...... tell me if you're feeling sick, okay?
Haruka's shoulders slumped.
I'll be back in a few days.
I'll be ready in a minute! Please wait for me!
Yukino smiled broadly and bowed deeply. "I'll be ready soon!" She ran to her room, fumbling to take off her nightgown.
