69 - 068 Promotion

"Oh. You made it back alive."

 This was the first thing Lieutenant General Gugain said when he greeted us.

"Don't worry about the lieutenant. He dies a lot."

"What is ......?"

 Come to think of it, he once said, "I'll let you die again." .......

"Well, good. Well, it doesn't matter. I'm sure you'll be promoted to lieutenants for your service."

 We will find out about Lt. Cheb later.

 I have heard that promotions are possible even during the school year, but it's a strange feeling when it happens.

"Well, now that you've taken out the troublesome ones, our army is suddenly in a better position. It will only be a matter of time before we take control of this front."

 Does this mean we can finally rest?

 We hoped so, but Lieutenant General Gugain's words did not meet our expectations.

"Tomorrow, we will take out the remaining general, Tyrell. I entrust you with the first squadron to lead us. You will strike the Tyrells down."

"As you wish ......"

 I have no choice now that I have been commanded.

 Come to think of it, I never had a day off when I served the princess, so I guess I'm lucky to have time to sleep today. Huh? When I think about it, I feel like ...... things aren't getting any better after all. ...... No, let's not think about it. They're even promoting me, so that's a little better.

 Lieutenant General Gugain surprisingly made a night attack.

 From the way he spoke yesterday, I thought he was expecting us to make another push, but apparently he was wrong.

"What? The enemy is already exhausted."

 Awen was right, the enemy was so exhausted that they could barely stand on the front line.

"Perhaps ......?"

"What's wrong? Lilt."

"No, Lieutenant General Gugain, I think he was preparing to give us the credit."

 I know it doesn't sound like it, but I'll say it out loud.

"I don't think so.

 Awen lightly kicked me out of the room, and I thought better of it.

"But, well, it might be easier for us to take the credit in this situation," he said.

 A suddenly motivated Awen glares at the enemy soldiers.

 He aims for Tyrell's head. If we get that far, we can say that we have already taken the Cologne front.

 He will take the hands and feet of the enemy general Clyde.

Shall we go?


 Once again we took the lead and reached the enemy general before anyone else.

 Tyrell had already appeared in front of us in a half-hearted attempt to save his life, and he died easily.

 For this achievement, Awen was promoted to second lieutenant, and I was promoted to first lieutenant, an unusual jump from the rank of first lieutenant, after having lost four enemy generals.
