Chapter 51: Advance in the night
“Oi, get up quickly”
Along with rough words, I was woken up by a kick.
Even I said a kick, it is not that I was kicked, but I felt that my back was shaken with his feet.
Naturally, it does not make me want to wake up. I looked up at Terrier-chan while covering in the futon,
“Please wake me up a little more gently.”
“What are you expecting Bandits to do, I don’t want to be kind.”
I want to tell him to stop stepping on the futon, but since it belongs to them in the first place, I got up from the futon without any objections.
I was not killed while I was asleep, as a bandit he must be a kind person. Well, but even if they want to try anything, there was no worry because there was a Bushiha-chan.
I *yawn* wipe off the tears and look around.
Look like Kuzuha-chan was awake earlier, and she was already wash her face. When our eyes meet, she smile and greeting me.
“Good morning, Arge-san” (T.N: good morning in the evening)
“Yes, good morning”
After returning greeting and continuing to look around, Dachs-chan and Chihuahua-chan moved around.
Perhaps they are preparing for departure. They put food and tools in the bags placed on the table.
Apparently it is a leather bag, it is the same as backpack Kuzuha-chan made by herself. But there was one thing that bag had different from ordinary one.
… It held a lot of things.
They put clothes, lanterns, fireplates, kitchen knives, and etc. into their bag. They only leave a lantern in table to light up this place.
Strangely enough, even if they put everything in and the bag isn’t swell. I point my finger at that leather bag and ask Terrier-chan.
“Terrier-chan, what is that? It looks like a lot of things go in.”
“I’ve stolen from the rich house in Kingdom. “Ash’s bag”, magic artifact, you know. There are as many tools as you can store in.”
“Hm, I see.”
As far as I can see, “Ash’s bag” can store variety of things.
Because it can also contain dried meat, unlike a Blood bag skill, things that contain blood can be included as well.
I saw it in this world so far, there are three kinds of magic artifact.
“Blur Soundless Child“, “Conjure Division” and now “Ash’s bag“.
“Blur Soundless Child“ perhaps is a curse system, “Conjure Division” is a “Remote operation” type, “Ash’s bag” is storage effect. Magic artifact, there seems to be various kinds of effects in various things.
It seems that my katana from Oswald-kun also has an effect, but what kind does it have? I was told that it’s just an ordinary katana unless magic power is added.
“Well, I can’t put things in if the item’s size is larger than the bag’s mouth, the same with living beings”
“Oh, is that so?”
Apparently, there seems to be no power to store big things like the Blood Box. Still, there is no doubt that it is quite useful.
I was a little surprised that they had stolen such things in the kingdom. Perhaps because of that crime, they become wanted in the kingdom.
“The sword you used the little while ago also a magic artifact, you know. Well, where did you get that kind of thing? “
“Terrier-chan, do you understand its effect?”
“Well, that sword is -“
“Boss, we’re ready!”
Just before Terrier-chan tried to talk, Chihuahua-chan cheerfully uttered. As a result, the stiffness of the story is broken.
Chihuahua-chan roughed his nostrils about, shaking his nose hair, and carry “Ash’s bag” on his back.
A conversation has been stopped, so a subtle silence comes between me and Terrier-chan.
After a few seconds, Terrier-chan stood up while scratching his bald head. Well, this story is over, it seems like that.
I do not know how he caught sight of my sword and if he know the effect of magic artifact, as a senior I would like him to tell me, but it seems like he has completely disappeared from the other side so it will be useless.
“Okay, Let’s go, guys”
“““Okay, Boss !!”””
To Terrier-chan’s words, not only the two of his men but also Kuzuha-chan are replied back to him. She probably still misunderstood the three people as entertainers, but it is funny to keep silent.
As expected of a bandit group, their footwork is light, Terrier-chan cut out the flame in the lantern and goes out. Kuzuha-chan also follows them, so I decided to leave the hideout at the end, just as I entered.
When going out through the side hole, the mountain is full of the darkness and tranquility of the night. “Hō hō to” I hear an owl cry from somewhere. So we also have owls in other worlds.
“I feel sleepy”
“I wonder if a vampire should do such a thing. You are a vampire, aren’t you?
But haven’t you moved around during the day?”
“Oh, daylight isn’t a problem for vampires”
“… It’s a big problem”
“Be quiet, let’s go”
Why is that when I was talking with Chihuahua-chan, Terrier-chan will get angry. I can understand if he is angry when i’m talking to him. I’m not doing anything wrong to him, so why?
Neguseo seemed to be waiting close by, and came to me as soon as I got out.
Terrier-chan begin to walk, Dachs-chan and Chihuahua-chan walk behind. Kuzuha-chan goes further after them, and me and Neguseo are side by side going last. With that kind of formation, we begin to cross the mountain.
Terrier-chan, who is going first, walks more slowly than during the day, but he isn’t being considerate of me, it was to make as little noise as possible. Occasionally stopping, he is listening and looking around.
It’s easy for me who goes slowly, so I appreciate it even if it’s not out of concern for me.
Although it is a mountain with no light and moonlight hard to reach, the Terrier-chan Bandit Trio are moving as easy as during the day. Even though they are human beings, perhaps most of the ordinary people are supposed to see the scenery in the dark.
Is it due to some skill, or is it just because they’re thieves? Although I am a little interested, I keep silent. .
“… Stop, you guys”
His voice dropped in tone, and he lifted one hand as a signal. The other two also stop one after another as instructed from the Terrier-chan. Naturally, Neguseo and I are the last one stop.
Teria looked around and sighed a lot.
I concentrate on smell and perhaps perceive the same thing as he.
“Terrier-chan, you are…”
“Oh, it seems that it is going to happen”
Terrier-chan bandit trio prepare for battle.
(T.N: sorry for the confuse, they notice a guard coming.)
