After the battle, Hazama Village and the neighboring villages decided to make an agreement.
1. The human village will inform Hazama Village of information about the territory of the Kittle Governor and the surrounding area.
2. "Hazama Village" will help the neighboring villages as much as possible when demons or strong enemies appear.
To support this, they send messengers to each other once a month to conduct trade.
4. No "High King" calls.
These are the four points.
Of course, the lumber trade went smoothly.
We received corn, potatoes, and a couple of chickens that were not available in Hazama Village.
It seems that the other side was willing to pay for the supplies that would have been lost to the cult if we hadn't gotten them: .......
It was a good enough deal.
"Hey, Hausa. ......
I'd like to talk to you about your business, .......
I need to speak to Mr. Shoma.
Let's hear it.
The mayor of the neighboring village looked nervous, but as if he had made up his mind.
"When you eventually become the king of the frontier, would you be willing to include us in your ranks?
...... I don't have any such plans at the moment.
My goal is to live comfortably in the frontier until the turbulent world ends.
For that purpose, the frontier must remain peaceful. That's why I defeated the Order, and that's why I'm using the Dragon Vein to expand the Warding. If you need to become a king, then do so, but that is a means, not an end.
But ...... if I become the nominal king and humans and subhumans can get along, so much the better.
But if my plan works, I will make sure that no demon or black magic user can enter this village. I promise you that.
"Whoa, whoa, whoa!
The villagers shouted.
No more bugs from the Order! That's wonderful!
"That's the High King!
"The High King will give us peace in the time of the Dragon Emperor!
It's a great idea.
It's ...... good though. But it's still before Haruka signed the treaty. Even if you call the High King...
I've got a question for you, too, cult leader.
All of the Rikugaku cultists have been tied up and put on a wagon.
In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, please do not hesitate to contact us. We're taking measures against the cult there. If they catch the leaders of the Rikukaku cult, they are supposed to bring them to us. I'll leave that to the villagers.
...... Who the hell are you? What the hell are you?
The cult leader is ranting in a trembling voice.
"I don't know anyone like you! What the hell is that power ......?
If you're as surprised as I am, you'll be blown away when you meet a real hero.
I'm not sure what to do.
The actual summoner, the hero, will not have to go through the trouble that I did. If Yukino was in top form, she could have frozen all the bugs.
After all, the reason why the Order is running rampant is because the summoners have not yet come out into the world.
If a summoner like Yukino joins forces to defeat them, the Order of the Bug Man will be destroyed in no time.
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one.
"Hee. Okay, okay. I'll tell you anything. I'll tell you anything you want, just don't point that power at us.
The cult leader shouted.
"Our imam was a demon. Our imam was a demon. Maybe the high imam is too. ...... I'm afraid to go back to the fort. ......
I'm not sure what to make of it.
In the event that you're not sure what to do, you'll be able to always ask for help.
I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
"Yes. In one of the four fortresses, there is a high priest. Eventually, we were going to establish a new dynasty centered on the High Priestess. ...... But ...... the Priestess was a demon. And there was this horrible guy as the enemy. ...... I don't know what to believe anymore. I'll tell you anything you want to know. The location of the fort and the number of troops, yes...
The man from the cult is starting to talk like a maniac.
He's shaking, looking away from me for some reason.
...... No, I'm not asking that much.
"Brother. He's scared, you know.
Behind me, Haruka said.
He's more afraid of you than the Kittle Patriarch or the Order's imam. That's probably why he's so scared and can't keep quiet.
"You'd scare me like that. ......
You did .......
I remember when he flew out of the sky, spewed fire, awakened a two-headed dragon, and slashed the mage with his holy sword. Speaking of which.
That's scary for the people of this world.
I guess the nickname "High King of the Deformed" comes in handy.
"...... Ow! I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's worth it.
The man's words never stopped.
According to him, there are only about a dozen senior officers in the fort. The fort is on top of a rocky hill and all the peasants are living in tents on the ground. The soldiers of the Order and the Bugs are watching them to make sure they don't escape. Perhaps that's why there are imams patrolling the fort at regular intervals.
What do you think, Haruka?
I think you and I can take down the fort.
We're not going to push it that far. We just want to investigate.
I think we can.
We're here to find out if there's a magic circle in the fort.
We'll just go and come back.
If you know what you're looking for so far, you should be able to find it at ....... If possible, I'd like to finish my investigation before the Kittle Patriarch or other lords start messing with me.
Then let's go home. Haruka. I've done my business.
I'm going to do a 'Shoushu Kakusei' and extend my hand towards Haruka.
I'm done. I'm going for a walk in the sky with my brother!
Haruka jumps up and hugs me.
What a child.
I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
I'm sure Liz and Yukino are tired of waiting for you. I'm sure.
When I get home, I'm going to talk to Yukino and find out if she ...... knows who I am.
Well, I don't think she's aware of ...... me.
The person I was when I met Yukino in the original world and the person I am now are completely different.
"I hope you find your 'true master', Yukino.
"But even if you find your true master, you might still choose your brother. Because no opponent can compare to you. So I'm sure Yukino-chan will be with you for a long, long time.
Then Haruka smiled.
This is my intuition that I will be with you forever and ever!
This is my intuition as I plan to stay with you forever and ever!
When we get back, I'll visit Yukino, and then we'll talk about the 'attack on the fort'.
Once the frontier is at peace, our battle should be over for now.
