T.N: Please read Sei Manga Chapter 9-4 that I just released as well.
Mile Chapter 257: Frontier City 7
『 Do you dare to make me angry?
Don’t think that your crime will go unpunished.
Well, it would be a shame to sink the whole continent.
Maybe I should settle it by destroying the country only…』(Mile)
(((((Uwaaaaaaaaa!)))))) (E. Soldiers)
The soldiers were trembling.
But Eyes See… the goddess thought.
Even if the soldiers here believed it, there was no point if the higher-ups, who received the report didn’t believe it.
Then she walked up to the soldiers and pulled out the sword from the waist of a rigid soldier.
And she kneaded the sword with her fingers, swirling and swirling it.
((((Why didn’t it break!?)))))) (E.Soldiers)
Yes, the sword should be broken.
There’s no such thing as deforming like clay.
And then, she punctured the soldier’s breast armor with one finger.
With a very light feeling.
Supon. Supon. Supon. (SFX)
After that, she punctured three more holes beside the one created by her index finger. There were total of four holes with four fingers at the same time.
Even though his body is still fine, the soldier screamed out loud in exaggerated.
Then the goddess pointed her finger toward the rock a little further away…
They are truly the soldiers of the National Army.
Only a few of them fell down to the ground.
However, the rest of them are only standing.
Even though they are standing, they are in no condition to move at all.
It’s a complete, rigid state.
And tell your emperor.
What will happen to those who go against my will…』(Mile)
Then Mile manipulated gravity, flew to the sky and away from that place.
After several minutes passed, the soldiers finally regained their minds.
If they stand still in such a place, they will be killed by a surprise attack from the monsters.
… Normally that is
But for now, they don’t need to worry.
All monsters have run away for their lives to the left and right.
One senior soldier raised his voice.
『No, the runaway monsters will overflow from the forest!』(E Senior Soldier)
However, in order to make everyone feel secure, the commander denied it.
『That should be fine.
In preparation for such a case, we left 2 platoons there, on the outer edge of the forest.
They will definitely stop the monsters! We aren’t here for playing.
While we were doing our tasks in the past few days, they should have made a blockade in preparation for it.
Besides, when they reach the outer edge, the runaway monsters must be weakened, exhausted of their physical strength.
They shouldn’t be able to run anymore.
They won’t be a big threat.
More than that, we are the one who must be careful, because we may collide with that flock of monsters when they turn back.
We only need to prepare for it.
…And you do not have to think about the goddess.
I will think something about it, the reason for turning back, a believable story so that they won’t suspect our sanity, and also relaying the Goddess’ will.
I will manage to do something, it’s my job』(E. Commander)
The commander said that with an exhausted face, but at last everyone could be a little relieved.
Yes, it’s their job to report the matter of the goddess.
They just have to talk to other female servants and tavern’s waitresses.
That is the privilege of lower soldiers.
『Okay, we will resume moving! Get in the line!』(E. Commander)
And a mixed group of two-platoons, mercenaries and hunters went back.
With heavy mind…
『Why is there no storage girl? Where has she gone?』(Allied Captain)
When the captain shouted so, the girls of 【Red Oath】 have a troubled face.
『Well, about that.
She planned to give a bit of a lesson…
so that the enemies will never dare to do something like this again…』(Maevis)
Don’t tell me, she has invaded enemy territory across the border at night?
I have told you “Absolutely do not cross the border”
What in the world are you thinking?!』(A. Captain)
When the night is over, after breakfast, when everyone tried to withdraw the camp,
naturally, the absence of Mile was found out.
For breakfast, everyone baked and ate the rest of the meat last night, Pauline’s group just needed to sell sauce, salt, pepper, drinks that Mile left behind.
The unfinished drink barrel may be thrown away when they move.
But as the half-empty barrel can be stored in Mile storage, they don’t have to worry.
And when the soldiers thought that they could ask Mile to store the unfinished Barrel and food to eat again tonight, they couldn’t help but despair.
『No, she isn’t a soldier.
The hunter can act on their own initiative for actions like hunting her own food regardless of the request.
And of course, regardless of the border as well』(Maevis)
Maevis calmly explained to the Captain.
After listening to it, the Captain has a face like【Oh!】
Indeed, as I was told, it’s true.
Since the activity of 【Red Oath】 from yesterday has been reported to the Vice Captain of our 2nd squad.
I know that young girl Mile has a fighting power more than a normal soldier regardless of her appearance.
However, it was too reckless to pursue a group of monsters by herself, no matter how strong she is.
Besides, even if she runs away, there will be a time lag before she catches up with this unit. How can she manage it in the meantime?
At least, the skillful swordswoman, the leader of this 【Red Oath】group or the magicians should accompany her.
The Captain said so and accused Maevis’ group of their reckless act…
But Mile is superior to me in sword skill.
Her attack magic is stronger than Rena.
Her healing and support magic is more ridiculous(average) than Pauline.
Because she is our sword and magic teacher in the first place』(Maevis)
Not only the Captain but also the soldiers were surprised.
『Is it true?』(A. Captain)
『Do not you have to wait here for her?』(A. Captain)
『No, perhaps, Mile is safer without us.』(Maevis)
I don’t want to think anymore.
The Captain thought so and ordered everyone.
We will return home right away!』(A. Captain)
Because of Mile’s group from the first two days, their ration food and water almost haven’t decreased at all.
The remaining time to return is one day and a half when they still have food.
Of course, they don’t plan to throw away water or portable food.
It isn’t a waste to be careful when marching in the woods where you don’t know what will happen.
However, they couldn’t carry so much food.
In the end, they only carried up to their capacity.
The soldier will have meat for dinner tonight and breakfast tomorrow morning.
… Of course, because it takes time, they have no plans to take lunch.
And around noon.
『Sorry, I was late!』(Mile)
『How can you catch up so early!?』(A. Captain)
Seeing Mile, who wasn’t tired at all after catching up with the group, the captain has a face like giving up everything and doesn’t bother anymore.
『Ah, at the camp, I also collected barrels and meats that were left behind.
I’m sorry, I should have kept everything in storage and leaving only breakfast.
I didn’t think it through.
Your luggage, I will put them all in my storage!』(Mile)
(I don’t care anymore.
The most tired in my life…) (A. Captain)
And the Captain issued instructions to everyone.
『We have a big break!
Give your meat and luggage to the storage girl!』(A. Captain)
Bufu~u! (Blow out air from the mouth SFX)
『Wha… what’s with that 【storage girl】?』(Mile)
『Ah, my bad …』(A. Captain)
The Captain apologized to Mile because he carelessly called Mile with the nickname that they used to call her, in a moment of mental exhaustion.
And at night.
We have the sauce for grilled meat, salt, and pepper.
Lemon juice with ice.
Apple that you can ask for storage and eat again if you don’t finish.
Besides, because you were banned from alcoholic beverages,
We have cold【Mocked Ale】which doesn’t get drunk.
1 cup 5 small silver coins!』(Pauline)
『『『『『……Damn it! Damn it all! My hidden allowance. Aaaaaaa!』』』』』(55 people – Red Oath)
