Mile Chapter 233: Ascham Viscountess 2

 

 

『The Burglars from the Albarn Empire is…』(Junou)

 

Junou, the commander of the Ascham territory’s army spat out as he heard about the recent news.
The Imperial Army suddenly invaded, trampled the Viscountess Ascham’s land facing the border.
They will soon come here to capture Ascham’s main town.

Junou didn’t think of those invaders as an army, as they didn’t declare war and invaded like the burglars.
They are just a burglar group.
That name was enough for them.

Although the Ascham main town had more soldiers than other colonial territories, even the lord rank is just Viscount, it’s close to the border, they have an important mission to protect the border of Brandel Kingdom.

However, several years ago, it was weakened.

 

『Damn, that rotten son…』(Junou)

 

Yes, it was caused by one of the Ascham family, a fellow son in law who married lady Mebel and went into the family.
And then the late predecessor Viscount, lady Mebel were attacked by bandits…

But Junou and most of the people didn’t believe it was really caused by bandits…
After the late predecessor Viscount and lady Mebel’s death, that damn son brought in a cheating partner, a secret child into the mansion and reduced the money for the military for their luxury life.

Thanks to that, both the number of soldiers, the equipment and many other things have been reduced.

 

Fortunately, when that damn son planned to hijack the noble title and tried to abolish young lady Adel, they don’t have the Ascham family’s blood.
When the wrongdoer was exposed, they were all executed.
And to protect the legitimate successor, young lady Adel, until she gets back to manage the territory, His Majesty the King has dispatched a substitute to manage the territory.
However, even with the reinforcement army’s strength, it’s still weaker than the original army from the past year.

Although they have part of the Royal Army, the Ascham’s army was still no match for the powerful armies of the empire.
At best, they can only earn a little time.
Yes, time earning until the main army of the Kingdom and reinforcements from each territory arrive.

 

(But that hope is too small…) (Junou)

 

This land, which is being managed by a substitute lord, has no blood-line of Ascham Viscount left. Which means, there’s nothing important left in this land.
There is no king, lord or military that the leader would take a foolish move like hastily ordering their army to fight the great power to protect such a land.
The country will only counter-attack after having simultaneous countermeasure strategy, carefully preparing forces etc.

…In other words, this place will be sacrificed and become a frontline to battle with the Empire.
And even if the Kingdom’s counter-attack strategy succeeded, this land would still become a battlefield twice, this time and the counterattack time.
This land would be robbed of food and valuable things while being occupied by the enemy.
There will be no future for the countryside where deceased people, orphans, and widows overflowed.

 

(I’m sorry, Predecessor Master, lady Mebel…
I swear to use my life,
No, even after losing my life, I swear to become a demon and defend Ascham territory …) (Junou)

 

Yes, Junou, who was picked up by the predecessor Ascham family owner, Adel’s grandfather, and climbed from an orphan to the commander of the Ascham’s military force.
He devoted everything for the predecessor lord and his daughter, Lady Mebel. Everything, his own Life, and soul…

But then, he couldn’t do anything and let the most two important people of his life die,
Without proof, he couldn’t condemn the damn son-in-law.
Even when they laid their hands on Lady Mebel’s daughter, young Lady Adel, he couldn’t even help.
And at times he was planning a rebel to protect young lady Adel, he even was willing to sacrifice his life for it, but he was late and could not do anything again.

In the end, young lady Adel was lost.

 

(No, young Lady Adel isn’t confirmed to have passed away yet.
She might still be living somewhere …) (Junou)

 

He thinks so, but he can’t think that a 12-years-old aristocratic girl, who is helpless and unfamiliar with the world, can live happily alone.
The last time Junou saw young lady Adel was when Adel was still 8 years old, the predecessor lord and lady Mebel was still healthy.

Young lady Adel was intelligent, she somehow inherited her mother, lady Mebel’s blood. She was also called《Flower Garden》 like her mother.

Even though at that time, he was a commander, but Junou as a soldier, he couldn’t have the chance to talk with the young lady,
He has never talked directly with Adel, even though he has talked with his predecessor lord and lady Mebel.
He was only able to see the young lady Adel in the distant.

And in Junou’s mind, he still remembered what happened the day when he first met lady Mebel after being picked up by the predecessor Lord.

 

『Junou. Become strong, protect my esteemed father, protect me, and protect Ascham territory!』(Mebel)

 

Despite what he swore to fulfill lady Mebel’s wish when she was about 11 to 12 years old, half of that promise couldn’t be fulfilled anymore.

 

(But I will fulfill the other half of the promise even with the cost of my life!) (Junou)

 

Ascham territory soldiers: 300.

The invasion forces of the Albarn Empire, approximately 5000

 

『5000? I will make those burglars regret stepping on Ascham land!』(Junou)

 

Junou said the last word out loud, not in his head.
It was also the duty of the commander to raise the morale of his men by saying something good.

 

(But, in reality, there’s no way he could be able to win a straight fight from the front.
The number of soldiers is too different.
If anything, we must destroy the enemy’s headquarters…) (Junou)

 

If they kill enemy soldiers, other soldiers will replace them.
If they kill the enemy commander, the second in command will replace him.
However, if they destroy the headquarters, the result is different.

The enemy army won’t be able to move effectively, and they might need to withdraw.
If that happens, our reinforcements will come in preparation for a second invasion.
And just when Junou thought so.

 

『Enemy attack!!』(Ascham’s soldier)

 

The enemy took the initiative.
Not only Junou can reach that conclusion, but the enemies are also the same.
Ascham’s army will not be able to move if their headquarter was destroyed.
Besides, this is just a small army’s base, unlike a basecamp from the Empire.
If Junou is killed, there won’t be anyone to lead the Ascham’s army anymore.
They will be crushed.
The Empire surely wanted to secure a victory with as little damage as possible.

Why else did the Empire not use raid tactic on us with a big difference in number?
Why did the dominant one stall on the fight they surely won?
Junou was cursing his stupidity.

The enemy’s surprise attack troops might be selected members.
Their number seems to be 20-30 people.
In confusion, it’s not easy to determine the exact number of enemies.

 

『Calm down, the enemy number is small, if we take them down one by one, we can…』(Junou)

 

Before Junou finished speaking, a sword was swung down from his side.

 

『Tch~!』(Junou)

 

He blocked it with his sword, but in the corner his view, the figure of an enemy soldier who drew a bow reflected on his eyes.
If he tried to avoid the arrow, he would leave a gap and would be slain with the footman.
And he couldn’t avoid the arrow if he concentrated on fighting with the footman.

 

『 Damn it, in such a place! I, I have promised with Milady…』(Junou)

Hi~yun (Arrow shot SFX)

 

And when the arrow was released, Junou was ready for death.

 

Ba~shi! (SFX)

『『『Eh……』』』(Junou + Soldiers)

 

Junou, the enemy footman, and archer raised their surprised voice.

 

『By righteousness, I will help you!』(Masked Blonde Female Swordsman)

 

The arrow which flew at high speed was knocked down with a sword,
There was a female blonde swordsman… Hiding her face behind the mask, in a suspicious figure…
Without words, the two imperial soldiers attacked the female swordsman.

 

『True God Speed Sword!』(Masked Blonde Female Knight)

 

And she hit the imperial soldiers with the flat of the sword in an instant.
In such a scene, how can she afford to use flat striking instead of slashing them down?

 

『Fireball!』(Enemy Magic Soldier)

 

From the side, Junou could hear a chant of the offensive magic.
No matter how much good a swordsman is, he will be helpless again offense magic.
Because the sword can’t prevent magic.

If you are talented enough to become offense magician, you can earn as much as you want anywhere.
And there are few people who join the army and go to the dangerous front line.
Apparently, it seems that the Empire’s Sneak Attack Strategy included that precious magician.
And when the magic was about to hit the female swordsman.

 

『Anti-magic sword!』(Masked Blonde Female Swordsman)

Shun~! (SFX)

『Eh…』(Junou + Enemy Magician)

 

No way, the offense magic was blocked by the sword.
As he can’t understand what happened in front of his eyes, the enemy magician is stunned.
And…

 

『Tempest Blade!』(Masked Blonde Female Swordsman)

 

The enemy magician was attacked by the flying wind from the female’s sword.
And the magician collapsed on sight because he didn’t wear armor.
This female swordsman, on top of being expert with sword skill, she is also an offense magician.
There cannot be such a talented person!

 

『Attack her! Kill her!!』(Enemy Captain)

 

Did he judge the female swordsman as the greatest threat, the man who seems like the captain of this surprise attack unit shouted so.
And the female swordsman, who heard it, responded with a calm voice.

 

『I am already dead.
Even if I am knocked down, I will revive and return to the battlefield any number of times.
To make my wonderful dream come true.
And for justice and for my friend …』(Masked Blonde Female Swordsman)

 

Then she pointed her sword at the enemies and declared.

 

『I am invincible!
No matter how many times I collapse I will come back to life, as for I… am the 《Resurrection Knight》!』(Resurrection Knight)

Mile Vol 8-8

And then three other girls, who appeared from her side, subsequently said their name.

 

『Seriously hunt down the enemies and cut down their lives, 《Predator Red》!』(Predator Red)

『A guide to Hell, 《Shrine Maiden of the Darkness》!』(Shrine Maiden of the Darkness)

『Eh? … Your name was decided to be 《Big tits Hunter》!』(Masked Silver Hair Loli)

『Ah… shut up!
In the first place, it’s not 《Hunter》this time!』(Big tits girl)

 

Big tits girl shouted and denied the silver hair loli’s words.
And in the end, that silver hair loli announced her name.

 

『 I am the one who confronts the dominant one, people call me 《The dominant mask》!』(Dominant Mask)

 

For the last appearance, the words were completely opposite to her description.
But for soldiers who don’t know anything about that name, there is no point to retort (tsukkomi)…
… But there is something they must retort (tsukkomi) in their mind.

 

((((Why were you all wearing such suspicious mask?)))) (Junou + Soldiers)

  5. To not kill even in this situation, how naive can you be? I’m sure they will get by somehow by using Mile’s “Dues Ex Machina” since this is a PG story but considering this is a war with people dying I think they should expect to get their hands dirty.

    Like

    • “Deus Ex Machina” means “god from the machine”

      Which is true for Mile = Goddess using nano-machines here.

      Mile is “average” , she isn’t as weak as Kaoru or Mitsuha to dirty her hands on anything.

      FUNA sensei make Kaoru and Mitsuha series to dismiss the non-killing on Mile.

      If you expected a chapter where Mile is weak enough to dirty her hands once, you will die from old age before reaching that chapter. (Never happen)

    • In case, you forget.
      If we consider that 1 ancient dragon and easily destroy a country.
      Mile is strong enough to QQ 3 of them at once.

      Let’s alone harming Mile, I don’t think full army can even harm her comrades if she put up her barrier on them.

  6. I have a feeling that i can guess how will this novel end. I guess you could say i have a theory. Let’s examine what we know about this world. It seems that a very advanced civilization used to live here but then it got wiped out essentially by the world ending.

    The world seems to end in cycles: once a civilization gets too advanced, the world ends. We know this from the nanomachines who seem to essentially know everything about this world and can’t be destroyed by anything except for radiation. Now, let’s see what happens at the beginning of the story: Misato/Mile saves a young girl who was supposed to die in a car accident and who would later go on to invent interstellar travel.

    I have a feeling that Mile might not have really reincarnated into another world but rather into the same world, just many years later. But why reincarnate her into the same world? Well, to stop the cycle. Mile has shown that she can take actions that even the gods can’t predict and if this really is the same world, that would mean Mile essentially temporarily broke the cycle and caused a civilization to advance further than it was really supposed to. The civilization might be gone now, but they have left a very important relic – the nanomachines.

    If this is true then it would also explain why Mile got her “average” powers instead of actually being average – the god wants her to break the cycle again. She got “average” powers because this was the only way they could do it while still respecting Mile’s wish to be average.

    Or maybe i’m just overthinking some details that appeared in the first 2 chapters

    • Too bad, wrong guess.

      This world is an Isekai, totally not Earth.
      Why this world always get destroy?
      Because the human always greedy, they repeat summon “Genesis Monster” when they advanced enough, and it’s the “Genesis Monster” who kill this world.

      Nano-machines only afraid of Portal to another world spell, which has a chance to summon the “Genesis Monsters” to destroy the humanlity again.

      Spoiler:

      “Genesis Monster” is super strong, humans of this world STAND NO CHANCE at all, not even 100 hunters can kill 1 “Genesis Monster”
      Red Oath must get serious to kill them.
      Mile must use 1% of her power to kill them, not 1/7800 like usual.

      • plus the god of the world already said that Misato was transfered to another world. there’s no reason for the god to lie. so it’s another world.

        btw. how much power mile had to use when fighting the triple dragons?

        Like

        • When Mile got serious, 1 acient Dragon will take 1 hit to KO.
          Maybe you don’t know but Multiply power by 3.24 times is really a big deal.
          Just imaging a 162kg boxer vs a 50kg boxer, we don’t need to say how Overpower the 162kg Boxer is.

          As we can see, Mile = 7800 normal people can fight with 1 Ancient Dragon completely unharm. However, 2 Phase Cannon (Strongest Attack) can only hurt the Ancient Dragon.
          But she was put back by 3 Ancient Dragons at the same time.

          But when she was serious 7800×3.24 =25272 times of a normal human.
          She can 1 hit KO the Ancient Dragon with 1 simple lighting spell.

          Like

      • Wouldn’t that be a plothole then? Because it would leave a question as to why was the 1st civilization destroyed. It was stated that the 1st civilization coexisted with the ancient dragons who have power similar to Mile’s and could easily destroy them. And even if the ancient dragons didn’t help, the people had rank 10 authority nanomachines (considering they created them) so if Red Oath can fight with the monster then the 1st civilization could definitelly defeat it

        Liked by 1 person

        • Unless the nanomachines were created during that war, and did not reach their full potential until later.
          Or the 1st civilization was destroyed by something else.

          Like

        • Well, Ancient Dragon is just a few individuals, it took hundereds of years to give birth 1 Ancient Dragon, they can’t stop the wave of too many monsters from the inside (not outside).
          Just like a few military heroes can’t stop the wave of Zombie Outbreak from the city.
          But Ancient Dragon is still strong so their race didn’t go extinct.

          People might have rank 10 Authority but they were killed on site with the surprise monster becaue they were still human being, not Mithril body like Mile.
          As you can see, the USA president have enough Authority to bring the Earth back to the stone-age but 1 bullet still enough to kill him.

          And what Red Oath encounter is still lower rank “Genesis Orc” but they are as strong as “Normal Orge” with “steel body” that no sword can harm (Except Maevis True Godspeed Sword and Mile use 1% of her strength)
          Magic like Rena and Pauline are still useful.

          Unless there was a “Genesis Ancient Dragon”, nothing can be a worthy opposenent for Mile.
          And of course “Genesis Ancient Dragon” can’t go through the TINY Portal gate the humans nowaday can summon.

  7. So is the gonna be a superman situation. While it would be a strech to relize the girl with silver hair matching the prior lord’s daughter is said lord’s daughter’s daughter in desperation humans make really stupid decisions, so it will be justifiied if the question of are you the scucessor is never asked, but it is still a hidining your identity behind a thing that does not actually hide recongnizable features, Adel could have Nano san make the masks have appearnce distorcion or something though. Also while not sending aid would make sense for most lords in the area, That count that was friends with Adel’s mother does have a reason if he wanted to being that is the territory of a Missing close friend that he failed, protecting untill the scessor is found wouldn’t be out side the realm of reason. Misato will probably not stay anyways and the empire will feel the wath of Mile. I know I switched between names, but they are all correct.

  10. “Junou didn’t admit those invaders as an army, {such as those who didn’t declare war and invaded like the burglars} > {as they, who didn’t declare war, invaded like burglars}.” – run-on

    “And then the late predecessor Viscount, {lady Mebel were} > {Lady Mebel, was} attacked by bandits…” – plural vs singular. Honorifics before a name are capitalized (numerous times, probably not worth going through to correct). Names are often bracketed by commas as interjections.

    “Fortunately, that damn son planned to hijack the noble title{, tried to} > {and} abolish young lady Adel, but {they don’t} > {he didn’t} have the Ascham family’s blood.” – ‘and’ because it’s a two item list. ‘Tried to’ isn’t wrong, just unnecessary. ‘Damned son’ so ‘he.’

    “However, even with the reinforcement army’s strength, it’s still weaker than the original army {from the past year} > {of past years}.” since it wasn’t just the last year this happened, but years preceding it as well.

    “Yes, Junou, who was picked up by the {predecessor Ascham family owner} > {preceding Ascham family head, ” – honestly unsure whether ‘family’ and ‘head’ should be capitalized here.

    “Everything, his own Life, and soul…” – If ‘Life’ is going to be capitalized ‘Soul’ should be as well.

    “Young lady Adel was intelligent, she {somehow} > {} inherited her mother, lady Mebel’s blood.” – Yes, I. . . wonder. . . how such a thing could have happened (barely keeping straight face).

    “Even though{} > {,} at that time, he was a commander, {but} > {} Junou{} > {,} as a soldier, {he} > {} couldn’t have the chance to talk with the young lady,” – commas around interjections and, often, names when they aren’t the subject of the sentence. ‘Even though’ ~= ‘but.’ No second ‘he’ because there’s already ‘Junou’

    “he would leave a gap and would be slain {with} > {by} the footman.” – assuming the footman would be the one doing the killing and not being killed along side him.

    “No matter how {much} > {} good a swordsman is, he will be helpless {again} > {against} offense magic.”

    ——

    “There are no king, lord or military leader would take a foolish move like hasty ordering their army to fight the great power to protect such a land.” – Wait. . . Without an Ascham wouldn’t it just become the Crown’s lands? The presence of the administrating family has little effect on the territory’s value except in diplomacy and now it would be aiding the crown. . . I should stop thinking.
