Chapter 17: Big tentacles and small vampire
“The closer I get, the bigger the squid is” (Arge)
An impression leaks out from my mouth.
How many sashimi servings can you have?
I am standing at the bow of a medium-sized armed ship.
The name of this ship is “Pisces”.
It is an old ship that was planned to be scrapped.
I had received it from Samaka-san and use it to approach the squid.
The “Pisces” is in the midst of moving forward slowly towards the gigantic squid “Abyss Call”.
However, it is not the sailors who are moving the ship,
in fact, there is no one else on this ship other than me.
… This is one of many cheat skills I have.
A skill that allows a person to use their own blood on another and make them a servant.
Originally it is a skill that can only be used on living things,
but I can even use it on non-living things with the maximum level skill.
And high-level blood contracts has the power that allows me to manipulate the servants freely.
In other words, I have turned this ship into a servant, so I am moving it by myself.
As my wish, the sail will adjust the tension arbitrarily and the steering wheel will change direction without even touching.
It’s very convenient to move with just a thought.
“Pisces” is a sailboat, it has a structure that moves by receiving winds on the sails,
it does not have an engine, but if it is wind, it can be made magically.
Although as expected, I can’t freely shoot the cannon, this is enough because I just want to get close.
Blood contract. It is the perfect skill for me.
She is really a nice person, isn’t she?
(T.N: I think she means Loli-gramp)
The sea was rough because the squid was raging until a little while ago, although the “Pisces” is swaying pretty well, it has proceeded neatly.
If there is a problem, it is the position of the leather belt hanging on the shoulder from before sailing on the ship is sometimes misaligned and somewhat disgusting, but I have fixed it now.
Although the squid clearly recognizes me and is wary, I’m not trying to make an explicit attack,
when it is suddenly confronted with the retreat of the fleet that was attacking it.
Even though it may not understand and answer questions, but let’s first talk.
With that in mind, I take out something from the Blood Bag.
What I took out is what I got prepared by Samaka-san, like the “Pisces”, a megaphone.
Although, it is not like one used for elections.
It is a simple one as it is used for sports events.
It is made from a plastic-like material, and the expression like that is truly perfect.
“Hello, can you hear me?” (Arge)
Try calling with a megaphone for the time being.
I have expanded the range of effect of the language translation skills,
so if it is an intelligent creature, It will understand my words and I will also understand its words.
After a while, there was a reply from the other party.
“Who are you ?” (Abyss Call)
… Wow, old man voice.
Is it a racial one or an individual one?
The voice of the squid was male,
it was a low voice with a dry impression, perfectly matching the expression of the old man.
“Well…I’m just a Vampire passing by.” (Arge)
“What? a Vampire? What kind of joke is this, miss? Is it possible for a Vampire to move about when the sun is still out?” (Abyss Call)
“No, it is because I have a high level of sun resistance … Um … Old man squid” (Arge) (おっさんイカさん: Ossan Ika-san)
“Old man squid!?” (Abyss Call)
“Oh, I’m sorry, is squid Old man better?” (Arge) (イカオヤジ: Ika Oyaji )
“It’ not that much different!” (Abyss Call)
I was yelling about the naming even with a non-human partner.
I thought it was a perfect name, but a big squid is still a squid. It looks delicious.
“What’s with that regrettable face … ?” (Abyss Call)
“Oh, no, do not worry about it, so… can you please stop moving towards that town?” (Arge)
“Deny” (Abyss Call)
Short, easy to understand reply to that. After that, he was attacking with a lot of tentacles.
“I wonder who was the target, but I do not feel like going out for a joke” (Abyss Call)
… Ah, was this not the case after all? It is troublesome.
At the same time, I made a decision in my heart.
Numerous white tentacles were aiming at the “Pisces”
