Mile Chapter 113: Out of the world
[The Ancient Dragon Daughter Sherara (Although we can’t tell that from the way she looks) guided us to the underground ruins from the large hole.
We reach the spot where the earth and sand collapsed because the beastkins dug a hole there.
Beyond that hole there was a space that looks like a hall.
This must be the 『Temple Hall』 which Beldetes was talking about.
Sherara’s body is too big to enter the hall.
The temple will collapse and bury all of us together if she forciby enters.
To avoid it, Sherara only put her head in that hole.
It seems that earlier, the three Ancient Dragons had put their head in to look inside ] (Mile’s inner thought)
Right now, I’m putting a very thin and tough thread around your neck.
So if you take your head out, it’s going to get ugly …」(Mile)
Sherara was scared, as long as her life was threatened, she will get cold feet.
Mile knew that fact and threatened her, so she couldn’t escape.
And the girls went on to check the hall.
Mile casts a spell to light in the hall.
[We can see everything clearly after being illuminated by the light
Although it’s a hall, it isn’t so wide.
Even though there’s an altar, there is no religious item.
However, I could understand why Beldetes called this hall a「temple」](Mile’s inner thought)
There were drawings on all the wall surfaces of the dome-shaped hall.
It isn’t paint.
It’s a magnificent Tile Drawing that uses a huge number of different colored stones.
Just how much time and effort to make this picture.
No, because those stones aren’t plate-shaped, can we really call it「tiles」?
Anyway, it was a mural painted with a combination of enormous number of colored stones.
Certainly, if we make a drawing that way, it will not fade even after a considerable number of years.
There is no trace of peeling off, so those stones weren’t just pasted together but carved into the wall.
What sort of ingenuity had been done and how much time it took to complete this.
Rena, Maevis, Pauline, and Dr. Kulereia are all looking at the mural painting and are amazed.
Different from them, what makes Mile stand with mouth agape isn’t the enormous drawing but its content
「What is this …」(Rena, Maevis, Pauline, Kulereia)
With the other girls, the drawing looked in the following manner to them.
A funny plant that grew to the sky.
There’s are jellyfish and fish. So is this a picture about the ocean?
A picture that human beings, elves, dwarves, beastkins, and devils are living peacefully and happily together.
And standing beside them was a figure of a Dragon Baby which looks like an Ancient Dragon.
In addition there are various scenes, various living creatures,… which are unknown.
They were all drawn on the walls by combining countless colored stones.
「What a fantastic picture … 」(Maevis)
「It’s the first time I see anything like this …」(Rena)
「One day, we should have such a peaceful world …」(Pauline)
Maevis, Rena, Pauline are telling their impression about the drawing.
Dr. Kulereia is quiet with a concerned face.
And, as for Mile.
「Why, why is this …?」(Mile)
With Mile, the picture was looked like this.
A group of skyscrapers.
Many space ships. It isn’t a rocket or airplane, but a 「space ship」
Something that looked like a hover car.
Several adults wearing clothes like researchers and a lot of what looked like children from various races.
And a small dragon near their side that look like a Pet.
Mile understands somehow.
This isn’t just a fantasy painting with the artist’s delusions.
Mile thought that someone would have to leave this drawing here with a great deal of time and effort, perhaps spending most of that person’s life.
If it’s only about several hundred years, that person can just draw a picture normally.
Then it would have been completed sooner.
But that person made this drawing in this manner.
Did it mean that he wanted this picture to be preserved for a certain period of time?
And to whom did he want to show this drawing to?
At that time, the God (self-stated) said.
「…Actually, that world had advanced civilization but collapsed several times, because all the technology was lost, human barely survived.
And the last thing they did is a large scale experiment as safety measure …」(God)
That 「large scale experiment」is familiar, that was called the nanomachines.
And Mile, just like the Doctor, also became silent.
(After a while Red Oath and Dr. return to the surface) (TN: in raw don’t have this but I add)
「Well, you should leave this as soon as possible, if you want to avoid disputes with humans …」(Mile)
Beldestes stopped Mile that tried to withdraw after they came back from the ruin.
「It is unfair that we are the only one gave out information.
And we also need to report about this to our elders.
So I want you to give out information as well !」 (Beldetes)
Mile thought it’s troublesome, but what they said was true.
They will need to report to their Elders and of course 「we don’t know」isn’t an answer.
Being a subordinate must be hard. Besides, we don’t have anything to hide. It’s no harm to give out something back.
「… so what do you want to ask?」
Beldetes pointed at Mile with his huge fingers.
「You! I want you to tell us about your identity!」(Beldetes)
Everyone on the spot are staring at Mile.
Especially with Dr. Kulereia.
It can not be helped.
Mile decided to honestly answer the Ancient Dragon Beldetes’s question.
「My true identity, is …. well, I will tell you, my identity …」(Mile)
Rena, Maevis and Pauline swallowed their gulp.
「At one point, I’m the only daughter of a Viscount.
At some point, I’m a C rank hunter.
But actually I am…」(Mile)
Dr. Kulereia swallowed her gulp as well.
「… An Average girl that you can find anywhere, Mile!」(Mile)
「You are lyingggggggggggggggggggg ! 」(3 AD and RO and Dr.) (Usoda aaaaaaa !)
It was an All Out Tsukkomi.
「Do not lie! How can you be just an average human being!」(Beldetes)
「Even if you ask me so.
But from both of my father and mother sides are aristocratic people who have followed all nobles for generations.
I don’t think that our family have mixed blood from other races within at least 10 generations …」(Mile)
Beldestes is amazed at the words of Mile.
「Well, indeed, although you only smells human beings … But, how can that be …」(Beldetes)
Mile sniffed and smelled herself in a hurry. But my smells is … No, it was very sweaty. But that can’t be helped! It can’t be helped after all that!!
「Then, why are you so strong? Why can you fight Ancient Dragons?」(Beldetes)
Mile replied Beldetes with a doya face while put her hand near her face.
「That was because my soul trembled with anger and my heart was burning with hatred!」(Mile)
「Huh…, Are you, really, a pure blood human? If so you must be out of the world!」(Beldetes)
Mile answered smartly to that question of awe.
「Yes, that’s right, I am not from this country, so …」(Mile)
「that would mean a「foreigner 」 but that wasn’t what we are talking about!」(Rena)
Mile and Rena were just like usual.
And when the three Ancient Dragons were busy talking, 「Red oath」and Dr. Kulereia tried to leave the place secretly.
Dusun dosun (SFX)
Something appeared from between the trees.
「Low Breath!」 (Red Oath and Dr.)
(We completely forgot about them …) (Red Oath and Dr.)
Early, they had saved everyone from crisis by earning some time, so it was pretty rude of everyone to forgot about them.
Then a girl around 10 years old descended from Low Breath and ran to Mile and other girls and said…
「Wan wan!」 (10 year old little girl) (T.N:Wan wan is japanese for woof woof, but I want to keep it just like the catgirl end her sentences with Nya nya instead of Meow meow)
「Eh, Elsie ~e~ee!!」 (Red Oath)
