Mile Chapter 235: Ascham Viscountess 4

 

 

『What does this mean!』(Enemy Commander)

 

The commander was shouting at the battalion officers at the scene.

 

『I will ask the details about the security posture that allowed such a thing to happen later.
If you couldn’t spot the enemies and allow them to burn or destroy the supplies. It was still understandable.
But what exactly is this?』(Enemy Commander)

 

Yes, it is impossible to bring out all the huge supplies, without being noticed by anyone.
How many workers are needed to bring all the goods out without using a wagon?
Did the enemies carry all the supplies in a small amount of time without being noticed by the surrounding people?
Such a thing can not be done… normally.

 

『… Don’t tell me, you guys…』(Enemy Commander)

 

The officers of each battalion realized what the commander thought and changed their complexion.

 

『No, absolutely not!
We were not foolish enough to do such a thing, to steal the supplies from the frontline!
If we did such a thing, we couldn’t even live to return to our country for a chance to sell those supplies!』(Enemy Officer)

 

Let alone the chance to return, the soldiers and officers can’t fight properly due to the lack of supplies, the enemies in the territory might be able to kill them

And the commander, of course, had no choice but to be convinced with that explanation.

 

『Then, what exactly is that …?』(Enemy Commander)

 

 

………………………………………………………………………………

 

 

『You got plenty of military supplies…』(Pauline)Mile-Pauline

 

Pauline has a satisfied smiling face.

 

『But how much are there for your storage …?』(Rena)Mile-Rena

 

Rena has a disturbed expression.

 

『Well, it’s Mile, so …』(Maevis)Mile-Maevis

 

It’s a waste of time to think about it.

 

『Ahahaha…』(Mile)Mile-Mile

 

Mile smiles to distract.

 

『But, it’s bad, isn’t it…』(Rena)Mile-Rena

 

Yes, as Rena said, it was a foul play.

Mile, with invisibility, sound blocking, odor blocking, obstructive blocking overflow fields, casually walked in the camp, stored items in the item box, and walked back as if it was nothing.
It was a very easy job.

Transport units, whether they carry heavy equipment supplies, foods or ammunition, they must use a wagon or a cart.
Or because the supplies are always on board, even at the time of resting, it’s impossible for the Empire to hide the goods on the way.

So, in order to spread damage suddenly, the girls aimed for the day during the movement.
If the front and back of the highway were blocked by fire magic or soil magic and the wagon was attacked from the side,
Supply transport personnel will surely jump off from a wagon which can’t move, in order to hide from the attack.
After the personnel went away, the girls could use fire magic to burn the wagon easily.

… Yes, the raids on the imperial transport troops and the mysterious disappearance of supplies on the supply camps are all the works of 《Red Oath》, no, 《Red Blood is Justice》

Because Mile knew about the importance of supplies from the reading in previous life, the movie of the war thing, the overseas drama etc, which proposed to stop the supply of the enemy, that it attacks the supply corps and the supply camp
But, Pauline has added a further twist.

 

 

………………………………………………………………………

 

 

『…What does this mean!』(Enemy Captain)

『That’s our line!』(Enemy Captain)

 

Despite being in front of the commander, the atmosphere of the emergency meeting is very bad. The attendants glare each other.

 

『Would you hurry up and return our goods?
Even though we are the same regiment,
if your goods, after being allocated, were stolen by the enemies,
it’s self-responsibility. We will not share our supplies with you!』(4th Captain)

『It’s our line!
While the 1st battalion hasn’t lost anything.
The 2nd battalion, the 3rd battalion lost all their supplies.
But the 4th battalion and the 5th battalion only lost half of their supplies. It’s obviously unnatural.
It must be because the enemies have reached their carry limit when they carried the supplies from the 2nd battalion to the 4th battalion.
And after the enemy troops withdrew, the 4th battalion discovered that their goods were stolen, and then the 4th battalion soldiers brought half of the supplies of the 5th battalion back to their supply camp!』(5th Captain)

『 That word should be returned to you as it is!』(4th Captain)

『 Then, why would the enemies, who have stolen goods from the 2nd and 3rd battalion,
bother to steal half from the 4th and half from the 5th battalion?
If anything, it would be easier for them to steal all the goods of the 4th battalion.
And because the enemies didn’t touch the supplies from the 1st battalion, it was natural to think they avoided the camps from both ends which were easier to be spotted than those in the middle!』(5th Captain)

『Gu~nu~nu …』(4th Captain)

 

Even the 5th captain’s words gradually became polite, his words still showed a degree of anger.
And, the rest, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Captains…

 

『What does this mean?
The 2nd and 3rd battalion’s goods were all gone,
Why did the first battalion supplies increase by 30%?』(2nd + 3rd Captain)

 

The second and third captains have a blue vein on their forehead.

 

『I don’t know! I have no idea, it’s the truth!』(1st Captain)

 

There was no doubt about it.

Although the first captain should be happy because he didn’t lose his supplies.
However, the situation is somewhat bad now, his supplies have mysteriously increased.
Considering the position of the second and third battalion which lost all of the goods including food, he felt bad that he was the only one who had escaped the damage.
But it also increased the allegations of both the second and third captains.

Although the supplies were equally divided for each battalion,
They are all fellows who fight together, they are the same regiment and the same invasion unit.
If someone had lost their supplies, the other captains should respond well by offering the redistribution of supplies.

However, it’s impossible when other captains suspect each other secretly stealing supplies. Even the goodwill of sharing supplies might be a cheap trick to hide their sins.
They won’t accept until someone apologies and their goods are returned.

At that point, the commander was worried about the captains so he decided to abandon the investigation.
Whatever the outcome is, he thought it’s impossible to restore the trust and morale.

 

『It is dangerous to be stationed in the Ascham territory like this, the enemies might still be lurking somewhere to hinder our supplies.
So, when the next supply unit arrives I will send an escort squad to pick it up.
As we receive the goods, we will redistribute and start moving immediately!
Am I clear?』(Enemy Commander)

 

It is a decision of the commander.
Whether the captains might still be thinking, they have no choice but obey.
The five captains replied at once.

 

『『『『『Yes, commander!』』』』』(5 Enemy Captains)

『Well, what’s the ETA (estimated time of arrival) of the next supplying corp?』(Enemy Commander)

『For the next supply, we have planned to increase the escort number and carry a large number of supplies at once enough to cover the last two which were robbed.
So, they would arrive a little late, the ETA will be in 4 days』(Enemy Staff)

『Okay, in the morning after 5 days, we will start the invasion …
Damn it, because I planned for surprise attacks and now we must waste many days waiting…』(Enemy Commander)

 

And that evening.
One of the staff members with a blue face ran into the tent for the commander.

 

『Com…Commander! the sup… supplies at the supply camp…』(Enemy Staff)

『What’s wrong! Calm down and report properly!』(Enemy Commander)

『All of our supplies are gone!』(Enemy Staff)

『What did you say!?』(Enemy Commander)

 

And in a hurry, when the commander rushed to the storehouse, there were still supplies of goods that he saw during the daytime.
A wooden box filled with food and other things, a water barrel as well.
The staff explained to the commander in a hurry.

 

『No… there are only boxes left… empty wooden boxes, empty barrels.
When we were checking during the day, there was definitely content, there was no mistake!』(Enemy Staff)

『…………』(Enemy Commander)

 

He doesn’t know the reason.
But this is clear.

 

『 We can’t afford to wait for supply troops,
It’s too dangerous to wait for four days without food and if this is all the enemy’s work,
they will attack at when we are weakening
And if they could do this so far, no matter how many escorts are attached, the next supply troop will still be attacked,… if that happens …』(Enemy Commander)

 

The staff swallows his salvia with a gulp.

 

『In the morning, we will start invading the Ascham demesne at once.
Our route will head towards the river first, after refilling our water, aim for the main town, inform everyone now!』(Enemy Commander)

 

The staff member ran in haste.

 

And little did they know when they arrived in the river and tried to replenish water to many barrels.
All of the barrels were sabotaged, the parts of the wood are being cut little by little, so no matter how hard they try to fix later, they can’t prevent the water leaks…

    • it is not evidence , it is already a fact that 1st regiment have increment 30% of their original supplies in their camp.

      but nobody can proof that it is the stolen goods because there are no witnesses to make it solid crime.

  2. I mean even if it is rare, it not uncommon to see a dozen of people can use inventory like miles in enemy camp. Even if the size is not the same but they can at least store some with them.
    But why they don’t use those people? I mean they can just run if they got attack, or emergency food supply if the main route got sabotage. It is an art of war! You do not put all your supply in one line, you will be dead if the enemy sabotage.

    • No one in this world can use inventory. Not even Ancient Dragon King can use inventory.
      I said no one and I mean no one.
      Legendary Hero in the past, who god gave authority level 3 have a chance to use it.
      But there’s no legendary hero in this world at the moment.

      What the people can use is a space distortion spell to store items during the casting time, need continuously casting.
      Pauline, the best human magician in this world can use that spell to store several dozens of kilogram items.
      And when she stops casting the spell, all items will fall out again.

      From 5000 soldiers invading Ascham, there are only about 2-4 offensive magicians.
      (Rate of magician/normal human is 0.06-0.1 %, the rate of magician can use storage is about 1% of the total magicians)

      Don’t you see EVERYONE (100% of humanoid, humans, elf, devil, dwarf and even ancient dragon are surprised with Mile’s inventory)

      • If someone other than Miss mile use their storage magic

        What will happen if they died suddenly

        Will the goods reappear or they will all gone with the life of the mage

        • it is rare for someone to have storage magic and the amount they can store is neglectable for military supplies.

          Like

        • the goods will reappear, it has been explain during Pauline and Rena training storage magic. storage magic need to be constantly cast, so the goods at the storage didn’t bounce out from the storage dimension.

          so if you surprise or attack storage magician until he lose focus, most likely the goods will spill out

          Liked by 1 person

      • I think that space distortion spell allows storing a reasonable amount of goods, and Mile is drawing attention by the fact she has it at all (it’s a rare spell suitable for powerful magicians), not exactly by the fact she can store several orcs in there.
        The other people would only start suspecting something when they’ll see she can put an army’s worth of supplies in there.

        Also, since when is Pauline the best human magician in the world? Sure, she is subtle and quick to anger, but I don’t think we were ever told she is all that talented or powerful. Rena is supposed to be better when it comes to raw power.

        • You could see how Pauline and Rena fight in the graduation test to see how strong their firepower is.

          Rena and Pauline’s magical power still surprised any hunter they met.
          In a later chapter (60+), when Pauline heal the soldiers, the soldiers thought she is even stronger than the Holy Pope.
          They still impressed with Rena’s fire spell but didn’t compare her with a Sage.

          Rena and Pauline’s magical power is on par with the Devils or the Elves.

          And Pauline had better learning talent than Rena.
          Rena still couldn’t use space distortion spell but Pauline could.

          Well, anyway, either Pauline or Rena is the best human magician in this world.

        • If I remember it correctly, it said that you need talents/compatibility to be able to cast storage magic. And Pauline has better compatibility to it than Rena. So yeah, they may be two of the best human magician out there.

        • Yeah.
          About 60 chapters later, Red Oath moved with the army in a request.

          Pauline heals all the soldiers every day without break a sweat, the soldiers are surprised that she is even stronger than the Holy Pope in the capital.
          Until now 300+ chapters, there are only the elves and the devils have magic power on par with Rena and Pauline.

          So for now, let’s say either Rena or Pauline is the strongest HUMAN magician.

    • Storage magic just manipulates space to dump things into it, the capacity is limited and it has to be continuously sustained.

      Mile straight up chucks things into an empty alternate dimension with no progression of time and leaves them there. I doubt anyone else can pull that off without the authority to make the nanomachines keep track of where all their stuff is.

  10. It is not evil to take the military suplies of an invading army. Mile is the local lady so she can just confiscate the goods. The enemy has not declared war so the troops are just armed criminals without the protection of their govenment. I wonder how much she could get selling the whole enemy army as criminal slaves? She could do it if she took almost all the incoming goods and tainted the rest to leave the enemy halpless.

  11. I wonder if in that world exist magic that creates a portal to connects 2 places. Maybe not, considering that it has not mentioned nor Mile herself uses it. However, if by chances it does exist, it can be used as a subtitute for storage magic. The magician only need to make a safe room somewhere, and then they can throw anything there as long as there are some space in the room and they can create a portal there. It will give them bigger space than a normal storage magic.

Assuming ‘fields’ was applied to all, just on the wrong end of the list. tense X 3. ‘Nothing’ does, ironically, need to be connected to something here.

    “In the morning, we will start invading the Ascham {} > {demesne} at once.” – This change is not applicable if Ascham refers to the people of the Ascham territories as opposed to the Ascham lands.
