Mile Chapter 88: Circumstances
“Three years ago …” (Mad scientist)
The old man started talking suddenly.
The『Red Oath』at first is blatant, but when they think about it,
it is a big welcome if they can get the explanation about the situation from the other side.
Since they have plenty of time, they decided to listen carefully.
Even if it takes some time, the situation will not change.
“My beloved Elsie died …
I managed to pick up the part where Elsie ‘s heart dwelled from her body, frozen and preserved, so I can somehow bring Elsie back later.
Unfortunately, with my storage magic that contains only a dozen kilos, I can’t store the whole body of Elsie…” (Mad Scientist)
Apparently this old man seemed to have practiced 『insulate the outside and periodically apply frozen magic』that Mile use as an excuse for long-term preservation of rock lizards with storage magic.
Even though the capacity is small, and can only be used by top magician.
It seems this old man has quite excellent talent.
“After that, I had to get a new young and healthy body,
but I live in the mountains so it’s inconvenient to find or carry …” (Old man)
It suddenly became a disturbing story …
“During that time, I came up with the idea of using a Wyvern to secure means of transportation” (Mad Scientist)
(Oh, that’s where the story goes … …) (Mile + Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
Four people who are finally able to see the story.
“So, I struggled to find Wyvern’s residential area, invaded the nest after the spawning season.
I entered the shell of an egg that had already hatched and closed the lid.
When the parents came back, I will comeout of the shell. Just like chicks, Wyvern mother with low intelligence has a habit of thinking that what comes out of her egg is her chidren” (Mad Scientist)
(Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey !!) (Mile + Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
Four girls protest in their heart.
“And before I knew it, I ran away for my life” (Mad scientist)
“Of course, You went to the weirdest places ~~!!” (Mile + Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
To the four people shouting, the old man becomes depressed.
“… I do not want to remember …” (Mad scientist)
“Ah, I see …”
(Mile + Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
The girls were convinced.
“And when I ended of with heavy injury and blood loss. A certain devil found me and helped me …” (Mad scientist) (魔族: Mazoku = devil race)
“Wait, a devil?” (Maevis)
Maevis raises her voice as she was surprised.
Devil race live mainly around the northern end of this continent, far away from the area around us where humans live.
And their land is separated by a large mountain range running between the human settlement area.
Although it isn’t something that can absolutely seperate the two race. There’s no one trying to go beyond it, unless there’s a reasonable reason, because it require a considerable hardship.
Beside, the devil race and human race do not compromise.
Acttually, even if they were called devil race.
It does not mean that they are worshiping the devil king and trying to destroy humans.
Simply, their race is a bit different. And magical power is bigger than humans in general.
That was it.
From the origin of the name in the first place mean『Race excelled in magical power』 or shorten as『Magical tribe』or『Devil』
There’s no difference with human being as well.
Together with beaskin, elves, dwarfs, there are totally 4 humanoid races.
And if you’re asking why only the devil race were removed.
Simply『jealousy』 , That was it.
Magical power stronger than humans, Body more robust than elves, dexterous hands than dwarves.
It seems that they used to live together long ago, but it isn’t certain when they started to live separately.
However, something must have happened at that time, no one knows the reason, but each other’s feelings were bad.
By the way, despite weak magical powers, the beastkin are more likely to become hostile than the human. Because of that, the beastkin also doesn’t come to the town of the human very often.
And, for these circumstances, Maevis who is a former noble and a reader knew to a certain extent about the races, but commoners like Rena and Pauline are hardly aware of it.
At best, they only know the Devil is a bad guy who uses powerful magic, the Beastkin is mostly violent.
It is impossible for Devil to be here, so everyone were surprised.
For what purpose, they appeared in such a place …
“So, they treated my injuries and shared some water and food.
When I asked why they’re helping me, he was laughing as he answered
『I’m going to do something better for you』and I got it a month later.” (Mad scientist)
That said, the old man pointing to 『Low Breath』
“Ha?” (Mile + Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
It was a very meaningless story.
Questioning, although some additions were made, the explanation content of the man did not change.
Mile understood what happened.
However, Mile can’t understand the intentions of the demon at all.
However, once they left this place, this old man and 『Low Breath』 are their first choice.
“At that time, 『Low Breath』 was also smaller, but it was originally intelligent and was familiar enough to talk with me.
because he was handed over to me from that devil, he also made me feel nostalgic. (T.N: Don’t ask me, I don’t want waste my time to check what did he mean by nostalgic)
Giving bait, teaching various things, and finally became a single servant and nested.
Although he had a nest, he made that nest just behind my home.
A wicked man would treat 『Low Breath』 like a ride or livestock,
but I can’t do such a thing. So, 『Low Breath』 is a friend. I think so.” (Mad scientist)
“It’s a nice story …
So, are you going to hollow my head and replace my brains?“ (Mile)
“… … What about the brains?” (Mad scientist)
A man with a vague face in the words of Mile.
“You said that earlier! You will transfer my heart with Elsie!”
“Oh, about it. What I want to transplant is your heart. Why should I care about such things as a brain, such an organ with only a function to make a runny nose?” (Mad scientist)
On the left and right, Rena, Maevis, and Pauline nods as if it were common sense.
“Yeah yeah!” (Rena + Maevis + Pauline)
Apparently, it seems to be an Egyptian idea. Those things that Mile has read so far have not been written …
However, if you think about it, because it is 『Heart』(『心臓』)in Japanese.
Maybe the old Japanese thought that the mind was in the heart.
Indeed, it is the heart that is throbbing when thinking about inappropriateness, not the brain.
Apparently, the brains of Mile seemed to be safe.
It is a story of if a sufficient amount of blood is sent in the transplanted heart.
“How about doing it, It isn’t bad deal for you, isn’t it?” (Mad scientist)
“It isn’t just bad, but it’s the worst! Who in the right mind would accept it?” (Mile)
The girls don’t even know what the man is saying anymore.
They thought that Mile was the weirdest, but it seems that old man is far beyond her.
And then, the old man dropped on his knees begging.
“Please! I also would like to live with a pretty Elsie!
And listen to her bark everyday with this cute voice …” (Mad scientist)
“A DOG!?” (Mile)
Mile’s cry sounded.
“Why would you transfer the dog’s heart to a human being!
If it is a dog, you should move it to the dog’s body!” (Mile)
“Well, no doubt, that was certainly the case, but you are perfect for the image of Elsie …
Besides, the girl’s body will be more interesting, various …” (Mad scientist)
“It’s not funny at all
Besides, with the dog’s heart it can’t support human body or otherwise!
What would happen when he want to go to the toilet, what do you do?“ (Mile)
As Mile said so, the man thought of something while staring at Mile.
“Do not imagine it ~ !!” (Mile)
Mile was out of breath blew up and it seemed like she somehow knew a little of Rena’s feeling.
I want to kill this annoying mad scientist.
