I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 143
Chapter 3-58. Once again to the Kingdom of Salettana
Many Oni were gathered at the main gate of the castle.
They had come to see us off as we were leaving Zenki-village.
Two days had passed since then.
We told the Oni that we would leave as soon as we received the swords, and they made preparations for us to leave.
Since there might be snow on the ground by the time we arrived there, I thought I would ask them to prepare for it here, but as I thought it would be eye-catching if we went there with the equipment we had here, we decided to prepare the full-scale equipment in the Kingdom of Sarettana.
I didn’t think it was that important, but since there was nothing good about being outstanding, I decided to take their advice.
Nevertheless, it was already cold.
I decided to take blankets for sleeping and clothes for putting on in the carriage.
Otherwise, we might catch a cold from the cold.
Besides, I feel more at home here in this village …….
I want to get myself a hat.
I’m sure it would match with my current outfit. ……
It seems that there is no custom of wearing something like a headgear in this village, so there were no such things at all.
I guess Oni have horns on their heads, and such things would only be a hindrance.
“Okay, is everything ready?”
“Aa-niikiii! We’re all set over here!”
“Oh, I got it!”
As I was packing up my luggage with Alena, Reizen called to me from outside.
It seemed that they had finished hooking up the horses to the carriage.
Now we can leave at any time.
“Ouren-sama, I am sorry that I have not been able to spend more time with you since your return.
“Tenda, huh? It’s okay, it’s okay. When I return, let’s have a drink together again.”
Even after I returned, Tenda continued to perform his administrative duties for the village.
It seems that Raiki has now come to entrust all of his work to Tenda, and he seems to be rather overworked by him.
However, Tenda never complained about this at all and quietly went about his work.
He was very different from the princess, but his nature was different from hers to begin with.
It is understandable.
Still, I was amazed that he was able to see us off in this way even though he was busy.
Other familiar-looking Oni, such as Raiki, Shim, and Den, had also come to see us off.
I don’t think they should have gone that far just to see me off, but I guess it’s because of my presence.
I don’t want to bother them. ……
“So …… how long are you going to cry, Princess?”
Behind Tenda was a crying Princess.
She is comforted by Alena, but her sadness seems to be doubled since she is also parting with Alena.
Me and Tenda couldn’t help but smile at the situation.
At a time like this, I don’t know how to talk to them.
Let’s leave it to Alena, who is also a girl.
“Tenda. I thought you said Oni didn’t cry?”
“Ha ha ha ……. please don’t force me to tell her that.”
“I guess that’s true.”
I guess it’s partly because they know what’s going on and are hesitant to interfere too much.
Besides, it seems that everyone in the village has agreed to it, so it would not be good for me to say anything out of place here.
Well, without further ado, we had better get going.
Our luggage is all packed and our horses are all ready to go.
All that was left was for us to get on board.
This time, too, Uchikage will be in charge of the coachman.
Now that I can do it too, we will take turns as we go.
I would like to teach Reizen how to do it, but I feel a little uneasy about it, so I haven’t taught him yet.
Perhaps we can talk about this some other time.
“Well then, Ouren-sama, please be safe.”
“Ah. Thanks a lot. Well, I’m off!”
When I said this, Alena noticed it and got into the carriage.
The princess had been crying the whole time, but she managed to look at me and bow her head.
” Raiki-san! Thank you for letting me play the taiko drums!”
“No problem. When you come back, you can play the taiko again. We need more people to play the drums.”
“Leave it to me!”
“Yea. I’ll be counting on you.”
Reizeni looked out of the carriage and thanked Laiki.
I still didn’t know why he made him play the taiko, but I didn’t think he was just understaffed …….
Would that be okay ……?
I remember hearing from Uchikage that only those who have found the true nature of the Oni can play them. ……
So, that mean …… Raiki is fine with Reizen?
“Oo-uhren-shamaa………phuliss come backm zhooon”
“Yes, yes, don’t cry, don’t cry. I’ll be back”.
“See you later, Hisui-ane-chan.” (Big-sis)
I patted her head anyway, albeit from the top of the carriage.
But it seemed to have the opposite effect, and she began to shed big tears again.
Thinking that she was a really troublesome princess, I stroked her head again.
Then I decided to prepare something I had been thinking about for the past month.
” 【 Air Compression】 , 【 Infinite Water Manipulation】 “
The air is compressed to a safe level, and water is put into it.
Then a water sphere is formed.
It is very simple, but it seems to be very useful.
“Princess, can you keep this for me?”
“… this is…?”
“Simply put, my part of me? How to call it. Part of my MP….. no- it will pop whenever I ran out of magic or I can break that water ball at my will.”
“Ah, I mean. When it breaks, just think that something happened to me.”
The skill of air compression is interesting in that it can carry compressed air in a spherical form, and the compressed air can be released manually.
If I don’t do anything to it, it won’t explode like it did when I took down the Bedrock.
The reason why it is possible to put water in the air is that a wall …… or shell is created around the compressed air, like a pneumatic shield.
Therefore, even if water is put into the air, it will not leak.
Also, the water inside can be controlled, so if something happens, we can leave a message.
“Th-this kind of thing… is it okay for me to have it?”
“Oh. I’m sure the Princess will be the first to notice if something goes wrong.”
It’s her we’re talking about, and she’s likely to carry it with her at all times.
If you ask me, she is the right person for the job.
The princess took it and wrapped it gently in her hands as if she treasured it.
“I will take good care of it!”
Before I knew it, she was no longer shedding tears, and she looked sharp like a princess.
“Well then, thank you for taking care of me. Uchikage! Let’s go!”
Uchikage said and started the horse.
The Oni and the others watched us until we were out of sight, and then went back to their own business.
We stayed longer than we had expected, but it was still a great place to be.
I would like to return during the festival and enjoy Japanese food again.
We got better equipment than we thought we would.
I was enjoying looking at the clothes and the beautiful swords, wondering how much they would be worth in modern Japan.
But for some reason, Alena seemed to be in a sour mood.
Reizen noticed this and called out to her.
“Alena? What’s wrong?”
“It’s not fair that only Ouren has those cool weapons.”
“Alena’s got a cute one too!”
“I want something cool!
Apparently the reason why Alena was so grumpy was because of my equipment. ……
Well, compared to Alena’s equipment, mine is certainly cooler.
However, if I interfere here, she might say something else, so I’ll leave it to Reizen to deal with it.
“Oh …… I see. Then let’s make some money and get ourselves some cool gear and weapons!”
“Can’t we just do that now?”
“No, you can’t. …… Because Alena’s equipment and mine were all bought by Aniki. We shouldn’t be so pushy.”
“Uhh ……, I see. …….”
Oh, Reizen saying some decent things.
Alena is actually a smart girl, so she must understand what Reizen is talking about.
“Besides, ……, give me your ear for a minute.”
Reizen was sneaking something in Alena’s ear so that I wouldn’t hear it.
When Alena heard this, her face broke into a happy smile and she nodded her head.
Reizen also looked satisfied and nodded back.
I don’t know what Reizen told her, but she summed it up well, so let’s call it a good thing.
I’m wondering what he told her, but I’m not sure. ……
I’ll give up on that since they don’t seem willing to tell me.
Once again I was entranced by the sight of Hakuryuzen.
