I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 250
Chapter 6-7. Side -Uchikage- Disaster
It is the second day after leaving the Kingdom of Salettana.
In a short time, the Kingdom of Garott will be in sight.
If that is the case, the Zenki-cillage will be just a few kilometers away.
The ball of water entrusted to me by Ouren-sama is still in my pocket.
Since I shouldn’t break it, I had to carry it carefully.
However, it was surprisingly hard.
I noticed this when I held it again in my hand.
I was curious to know how the water ball was formed, so I held it in my hand and fiddled with it when I was resting at night.
Then I realized that, strangely enough, even though it was a ball of water, my hand did not get wet.
No, in fact, I can’ t touch the part where the water is.
There seemed to be a thin film, less than a millimeter thick, encasing the water, which created a circular body of water.
In short, it was as if the water was contained in some kind of container.
It took me a while to notice this.
I wondered what kind of skills he had to create such a thing, but that was as expected of Ouren-sama.
He knew a lot about things we didn’t know, and he just took it in his stride.
While I was thinking about this, the Kingdom of Garott came into view.
I wondered what Asure-dono and Baltic-dono were doing, but now I had to hand over the things entrusted to me by Ouren-sama to the princess.
It would not be too late to go check on them after the delivery.
I passed through the Kingdom of Garott and headed straight for the village.
But then I noticed something strange.
Someone was looking in the direction of the village atop the castle wall of the Kingdom of Garott.
From below, the Zenkki-village was still out of sight.
Would they be able to see it from that location?
Thinking so, I decided to stop once and ask him to let me climb up to that place, even though it was impolite to do so.
If I used my Herculean legs, I could easily climb such a wall.
Or rather, I could jump over the wall, so there was no problem at all.
Soon I arrived at the place where those people were.
“!!? Ueeh!? Where did you come from!!”
“Sorry. I’ll leave as soon as I check something.”
It seems that the guard who occupies this place is looking at the Zenki-village.
The next words that the guard utters are surprising, but I notice that his surprise is composed of two things.
“If heard the Onis are…. its too late….”
“? Too late? Hey, what are you talking about?”
What is this?
My heart is racing.
I’ve never felt anything like this before.
The guards, after my words, pointed a finger and said.
“Y- you can see it when you look at that ……. Did you come from the Oni village? But you seem to be fine. So you don’t know about the current disaster?”
There were so many things I wanted to say, but I looked at the village from the top of the castle wall.
From here, I could see it from a distance.
The castle itself is large, though it is as a small as a grain of rice.
Therefore, I should have been able to see it from here …….
“What the ……!?”
All that could be seen was the castle town, with black smoke continuing to rise.
The castle tower appears to be intact, but from here it is difficult to understand the extent of the destruction.
Was someone attacking the castle?
What in the world had happened in the village?
These thoughts kept coming back to me.
The guard told me quietly, as if he felt sympathy for me.
“It was the day before yesterday. ……. I was on guard here when I heard a small noise. I looked and saw that smoke was rising around the castle. I heard that the owner of that castle and His Majesty Asure were friends, so I immediately reported it. I’m sure the soldiers are checking on the situation right now.”
That …… ball of water……!
It is no coincidence that the ball of water that Ouren-sama handed to the princess popped!
The Princess did not break it because she made a blunder!
It was a distress signal from the village……!
Right here and now, I’m trying to destroy the ball of water that Ouren-sama gave me.
Master Ouren had noticed that it was broken!
If I destroy it again, he will notice!
That was two days ago……!
It coincides with the date of the attack!
That ball of water was intentionally broken so that the princess could ask Ouren-sama for help!
“H- hey ……”
It won’t break!
He must have poured a lot of magic power into it so that it would not break next time.
Even me, the Oni, can’t break it.
“Damn it! Thanks for the information and the reinforcements!”
I thanked him simply and jumped down from the castle wall.
Kicking the wall to kill the momentum, I land on my feet and run toward the village, but this time, I run as fast as I can.”
I can’t break it alone.
If it’s with him, we should be able to do something!
But now we don’t know if all the villagers are safe …….
And the oni were not able to win.
It would be reckless for humans to face them.
There might be no more reinforcements.
I don’t know what awaits me, but I have to go.
I have to return the favor I was given by the people who helped me.
It would take too much time if I went directly to Ouren-sama to tell him about this.
I have to break this ball of water and make Ouren-sama aware of it one more time.
If I don’t hurry, I may not make it in time. ……
“Stay alive, Tenda ……!”
I increased the force I put into my legs even more and ran with the wind, which I thought seemed to be flying low.
