Mile Chapter 254: Frontier City 4

 

 

『What in the world was that …?』(Hunter A)

『No, I was certainly surprised…』(Hunter B)

 

After finishing the proper meal, 【Red Oath】party returned to their tent.

【Evil spirit Utopia】party and 【Flame’s friendship】party started discussing what they just saw.

 

『In the first place, what’s with that storage with absurd capacity?
If she uses it as a bargaining chip, she can work for any aristocrat or large merchant. No, she probably can even work for the royal palace!
Why did she work as a hunter?』(Hunter C)

『Well, there may be circumstances that we don’t understand behind that.
For example, maybe the Royal Palace is too strict for a young girl like her.
She was isolated, she can’t find friends etc.
Well, we can’t say anything about other people’s choice…
However, if she wants to be a hunter, she can join a rank A party.
No, she can even join a rank S party!
Why did she join a rank C party!?』(Hunter D)

 

(T.N: sorry, I don’t know the equivalent English proverb, so I just translated the raw words and copy the meaning from google search)

Diamond in the rough (宝の持ち腐れ: a paradigm that you have excellent talent but you don’t want to use it or do not use it)

Pearls before swine. (豚に真珠: a proverb meaning that people, who don’t know the value, are given good things)

Cat prefer small things. (猫に小判: is a parable that gives valuable things to people who don’t understand value)

In this world, there were also phrases equivalent to those of the Earth.

 

『Well, but I could understand with other members being so fantastic…』(Hunter E)

『Yes.
That swordswoman can cut the dead tree to firewood in an instant.
That offensive magician with exquisite fire magic control.
And that healing magician could continue casting healing magic easily.
All of them are protecting that storage girl.
Maybe they are escort prepared by someone to protect that girl.
Otherwise, I think it’s strange for all those talented beautiful young girls to be gathered in the same party by chance』(Hunter F)

『What’s so strange about it?』(Hunter G)

『That is not it.
I mean, they are too strong for some C-ranked newbie hunters that could be easily arranged.
And if it was really so, they wouldn’t take this request, it might be dangerous for that girl…
In the first place, that stupid… *cough cough*
That storage girl is just some simpleton with cute looking face』(Hunter F)

『『『『『Indeed…』』』』』(Hunters)

 

They are rude people.

However, because Mile hadn’t done any flashy things other than storage magic, it can’t be helped that the hunters are thinking like that.

And they are still truly veteran hunters, they have firmly estimated the sword skill of Maevis, the magic skill of Rena and Pauline.

 

And of course, the Lord Army’s soldiers weren’t idiots either.

 

『What’s with that?
That monstrous capacity storage magic…?』(Vice Captain)

 

The Vice Captain seems to be surprised only by Mile’s storage magic capacity.

But the platoon captain wasn’t so.

 

『 There are more to it,
Did you see the skill of that swordswoman?
Throw the wood in the air,
And with just 3 slashes, it has become firewood…
You guys, can you cut firewood in the air without support vertically with a sword?』(Captain)

 

The surrounding soldiers shook their heads horizontally.

 

『Next girl, she activated the fireball without a chant or time prepared,
Besides, she adjusted the firepower enough to only boil the water.
The fireball is sinking slowly into the pot water without exploding,
That control capability.
All of you, has anyone ever seen a magician who could use magic in such a way?』(Captain)

 

Again, the heads of soldiers were shaking horizontally.

 

『Furthermore, needless to say, that healer magician…
Even though she only healed small wounds and almost everyone has lined up,
She cast healing magic for everyone without changing her face complexion.
As I know, magicians don’t like exhausting their magical power outdoors.
Unless they are in a battle or an emergency.
For that reason, healer magicians only use the magical power they can spare…
In other words, that was half of her magical power,
No, that was probably not even one third,
Thinking in common sense.
No, even I said it by myself,
I don’t understand the meaning of the word 【common sense】anymore…』(Captain)

(T.N: I didn’t make this up, common sense is really in the raw)

 

The captain was a bit confused.
However, to recognize the unexpected abilities of the girls, who he thought, were nothing but luggage.
He started to see hunters in a new light.

 

 

*******************************************
*******************************************

And the next day.

When soldiers and hunters woke up, a nice smell tickled their nostrils.

 

『This is……』(Soldier)

 

When the soldiers woke up, there was a large pan with steam, a mountain of bread, and vegetable salads.

Mile Vol 8-3

『Breakfast set, five small silver coins per serving』(Pauline)

 

Today is the day they fight with monsters.
They can’t afford to have lunch (only breakfast and dinner)

Between breakfast on this side with only a hard bread, a piece of dried meat, water.
And another breakfast is nutritious, delicious, which will warm your belly instead of just filling it.

What do you think people will choose?

Will there be soldiers, who worry about five small silver coins and disregard their condition on an important day?

 

『Me!』(Soldier 1)

『me too!』(Soldier 2)

『Can I have two servings?』(Soldier 3)

 

Soldiers start to flood in.

 

『Yes yes. There is plenty, so do not panic!
Especially, we have the refill service (like the buffet but not self-serve)』(Pauline)

『『『『『Ooooooo!!』』』』』(55 people – Red Oath)

 

Actually, being full before the battle isn’t good. Like when we stab a sword or a spear into the stomach of a monster and pull out…

Arrows and magic don’t have such problem though.

However, this time it will be a long-term battle.
It was more important to prepare for fatigue and hunger.

Nevertheless, the soldiers kept eating until they were fully satisfied,
They all departed in the uplifted spirit.

 

(It is my first time to have such high morale in this mission, I thank you, 【Red Oath】…) (Captain)

 

The captain gently bowed his head to the back of 【Red Oath】

 

 

************************************************
************************************************

 

 

About two hours after leaving the camp.
The captain ordered the whole army loudly.

 

『This is the interception point. Spread out and set a patrol line!』(Captain)

 

Yes, this is the borderline which is the center of the forest.
It is a part where the width of the forest is the narrowest between the mountains on the left and right,
It was the most suitable place to catch and push back the chased monsters.

“Stop the monsters here and do not allow them to go further in the back”
That was the task of this unit.

 

The Captain expanded the team that was divided into four, to the left and right.
With this, a defensive line was formed at the narrowest part of the woods where both ends were blocked by the mountains.

We need to stop the monsters here or chase them back without letting any of them passed

If by chance they went past us and went to a wide place,  it would be troublesome to find them. In addition, when we chased after them, they would run toward our country as it was.

 

At that time, we may purge the Orcs and Goblins that were originally on our side of the border as well.
We would not be able to distinguish whether they came from the other side or originally here anyway.

The note back there has mentioned this.
Avoid hunting monsters, horn-rabbit, deer and wild boar etc. In other words, the hunter’s prey.
If possible, avoid driving them away from their original place.

Reducing the edible demons and animals around here would affect the lives of their hunters and the eating habits of neighboring cities depending on their prey.

Neighboring country’s soldiers don’t seem to pay much attention to such things,
And if they are hired hunters from the other side, they will hunt everything regardless of edible monsters, animals.

So, we will not pursue those “foods”. We will even let those “foods” pass through to our back.

 

 

***********************************
***********************************

 

 

It was around 2 hours after everyone separated from the interception point.
With perception ability beyond human beings, Mile perceived it.

 

『…Here they come. It is a large number of monsters and beasts!
But it’s not a group, it’s dispersed』(Mile)

 

Other members of 【Red Oath】 listened to it and silently nodded, soldiers and hunters were dumbfounded with *Eh!*

 

『Mile has a good nose and ear,
If Mile says 【they will come】 they will certainly come.
So be prepared!』(Maevis)

 

Although they were still in doubt when hearing Maevis saying so, the soldiers remembered Maevis and other girls’ fantastic skill from yesterday, and they quietly nodded.
Apparently, it seems that the girls have gained appropriated credibility.

 

『Here they come…!』(Rena)

 

After a while, other people also felt the sound and signs that monsters were approaching.
Rena smiled and call out to other girls.

 

『We will do it!』(Rena)

『『『Oooh!!』』』(Red Oath – Rena)

    • No, this is just an average speed.
      I remember at one time I release 4 chapters a day (well, those chapters were really bad quality though, I’m bad at English at that time)

      The average speed of 4 chapters per day and zero chapter per day is 2 chapters per day.

    『Well… We are finally at the border』(Mile)
    『B-But this is unexpected, what is that thing!?』(Rena)
    A massive floating war ship is approaching the group, it seems that the technology level of the other country has increased dramatically.
    『We are detecting a massive amount of Uranium-238 inside the aircraft』(Nanomachines)
    There is no way I can win against those modern weapons!!!
    The ship starts throwing some bombs as it starts to get away from the place.
    『It’s time to get serious』(Mile)
    Mile activates her god mode, and stores all the bombs inside her storage, she also stores the warship and all the fleet, so the people that were inside fell to their deaths.
    『I shall bring justice to this filthy world』(Mile)
    She says that as she flies to the capital city of the Empire, the members of the Red Oath are following her, using their inhuman speed. They have to stop Mile from doing something stupid.
    『Mile come here! You didn’t take your pills this morning!』(Red Oath)
    Maevis tries to cut Mile’s wings with her sword, it was not effective.
    Pauline tries to lure Mile with some golden coins, it was not effective.
    Rena tries to throw a fireball to Mile, but it bounces back, killing her. (T.N I don’t like rena)

    Mile throws the first nuke in the capital city, a huge explosion is formed. Maevis and Pauline made a barrier to cover themselves.
    Rena, who revived, dies again, burning by the intense heat of the nuclear explosion.
    『Everything shall burn to the ground!! Die you bastards!!!』(Mile)

    3 Days Later:
    『What the hell happened here!!!??』(God)
    God, who was taking a nap while everything happened, starts to survey the area which once was his planet.
    In the middle of the destruction stands a girl alone, looking with a creepy smiley face at her dead comrades.

    『So it was you! Mile…You destroyed this beautiful world! I’m going to destroy every bit of your existence. I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces……………』(God)

    『I’m hungry, feed me.』(Mile)

    『k』(God)

    Mile wakes up in the middle of the night. She is in the tent with her adventurer comrades, I mean, future slaves.
    『Wow what a weird wet dream, Where are my pills?』(Mile)

    • That’s some weird god. I mean, it’s okay for a god to not be Christian God with one apocalypse under his belt. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Examples_of_God_personally_killing_people
      But why would a god graduate from Navy Seals? Unless they changed the policy so that most candidates are pretty girls, and it was a harem story.
      Also, top sniper works for Japan, not US. It’s Shiba “Onii-sama” Tatsuya. I think you should base god on him instead.

      • Sorry, it was the navy seals copypasta, I don’t know why I put it there, my bad.

        After many years of research, Shiba Tatsuya finally completed his ultimate creation, Nanomachines. With these devices, a person can easily do everything that is possible in the laws of magic and physics.
        This new system became essential in every day life, and was very popular because of its cheap price and usefulness.
        But some unscrupulous people hacked the Nanomachine system and got access to the highest level of authorization, and caused havoc. It was the first time the world was destroyed, and humanity went back to the stone age.
        Tatsuya and his little sister became the gods of that world, they tried to rebuild it many times, but it always ended in failure. Tatsuya discovered the existence of another worlds, and started to lure dead little girls to help him fix the world, because he was tired and old.
        P.S. He did a short udemy course about the Navy Seals

  5. They don’t even know that..

    Mile is superior to Marvis in sword skill, her attack magic is stronger than Rena, her healing magic and support magic are more wonderful than Pauline. Because all of their amazing abilities were taught by Mile in the first place ^^

    • Marvis is more skilled with a sword than Mile. Mile just swings her sword around without any technique. And it works, because most people are too far below average in stats.

  8. Some corrections:
    “without exploded” {exploding}
    “they will hunter everything” {hunt}
    “let those “foods” passed through” {pass}

    More ‘average’ activity. It’s just detecting a horde from several miles away (I should use km here, but it’s Mile, you know). Of course selling warm food in the middle of the wild is also normal (average). Coming soon, the seemingly weak member of the all-girl party is going on a rampage, and the most damaged one is common-sense-chan.

    Thanks for the chapter! God bless you, and take care.
