I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 279
Chapter 6-36. A Quick Detour
The next morning, after everyone had woken up and had cooled down from the heat, everyone was tidying up.
They seemed to recall the cold weather, and everyone was cleaning up while shriveling up.
Or rather, the reconstruction work has already started.
And the strength of Oni is truly something incredible.
One of the oni was helping a collapsed house to stand on its own.
However, there are still some buildings that are beyond repair.
They seem to remove only the damaged parts, carefully leaving only the places that are still standing, and using them as they are if they can be used.
For those that are not, they are removed and used as building materials for repairs.
What surprised me the most was that the work was done by the older oni.
The younger oni were exclusively doing chores.
They seemed to be quietly doing what the old oni instructed them to do.
Half of the soldiers from the Kingdom of Garot were to be ordered by Bart to return to the country to procure supplies.
The rest of the soldiers dispose of things that are no longer used or needed, or go hunting for the village.
Oni are good at heavy work, and human soldiers are good at small tasks.
Their roles are well divided.
By the way, of course, it was Raiki who gave these instructions.
Even though he was sleepy, he decided which section all the oni would be in charge of.
I thought he could work in his sleep.
However, although Raiki was like that, he was left with a serious aftereffect.
While making a rattling sound, Raiki was pushed in his wheelchair by Tenda and came to me.
After what had happened the other day, he had lost most of his strength.
He had lost most of his strength as a result of what had happened the other day, making it difficult for him to stand up on his own.
When Houen and I discovered this, we made a blueprint of a wheelchair and handed it to the oni carpenter.
We thought he might not be able to understand us, but he was a great carpenter.
With the blueprints in his head, he worked hard to figure out how and where to process them to make this kind of thing.
The finished product is the wheelchair that Raiki now sits in.
It is made entirely of wood, so there are still some rough parts, but it is still usable.
We are planning to work with the blacksmith to make it a little stronger and improve the wheels.
But I never thought they would make it in three hours after I suggested it. ……
Well, there were lots of carpenters.
I guess I should say that they are master craftsmen.
“I think we need a cushion.”
“Next time, shall we make it a little bigger?”
Houen, Alena, and the others are now helping with the reconstruction.
The next time I’m here, I’m going to be able to thank them for the food.
I can see someone eating with tears in his eyes.
As for me, I’ve been trying to…….
I asked Raiki and Tenda to bring me to a certain place.
“Here we are, Ouren-sama.”
[This is …….]
There were several graves in front of us.
Each grave had a bottle of sake instead of flowers and a name carved into the stone.
The reason I came here was to see if there was something more I could find.
Hinata told me that the previous white snake had given his skills to the oni (demons).
And Raiki knows some of those Oni.
By listening to the stories of these Oni, I may be able to find out what kind of skills the previous White Snake was using.
It was more likely that I wouldn’t know, but I felt a little uncomfortable not knowing if I did something about it.
I pointed with my tail at the largest grave and looked at them.
“That’s the grave of my ancestor. The founder of the Godly Oni Dance, the one and only.”
Renma*, the founder of the Godly Oni Dance.(レンマ)
In kanji, it would be Renma* if I’m not mistaken. (錬魔= Tempered Spirit)
My guess is that Renma was given the [Tenwari*] of the previous white snake. (Heaven Split)
Uchikage said that Tenda’s attack was very similar to my Tenwari.
Besides, when me and Tenda were fighting together, we were making slashes fly.
It occurred to me that many of the techniques of the Godly Oni Dance were like that.
It was because Renma had mastered Tenwari and now derived it into a technique that everyone could master.
Although, it seems that it takes a lot of training to master it.
“I am sorry, but I have never met Renma-sama. I heard he died young. ……”
“Me neither. Perhaps father knew something about it.”
“Ah, if it was Ranki, Gouki’s father, he might have known something. I don’t know if Gouki heard about it or not. …… Or rather, Tenda. Gouki was already ……”
“He was alive as an Akki.”
“That persistent guy. ……”
Um, well, you see.
They have long life spans, so I don’t know who is the grandson and who is the son anymore.
I understand it was 500 years ago, but…
“I’ll talk to my father when I get another chance.”
Well, good luck with that.
Then Raiki pointed to a grave.
“That is the tomb of a man named Shisui. I have met her before, haven’t I? Although she was an Oni, she possessed many water-related skills.”
…… There’s another one.
The oni who inherited other skills from the previous white snake.
“But that skill was a skill with bubbles if I’m not mistaken.”
“Yes. I have only seen it once at a festival, and I am not sure if there was any more skill ……. She entertained the children with popping bubbles.”
I think it’s air compression.
“And that tomb over there. He was an Oni called Engetsu, and he was skilled at creating his own clone. When he hunted, he would often create a clone from the soil and send it off to fight.”
That’s (earth) golem.
“I think there were others, but I’m sorry. I can’t remember much more about them. ……”
[That’s enough. It’s good enough that what Hinata said was true.]
I said so in words as well, but since it was not conveyed, I gave a small nod.
The first time he saw it, Raiki looked at the grave again.
“……, everyone seems to be delighted”
“? Is that so?”
I couldn’t understand that.
But I think Raiki seemed confident of it.
It was just a little detour.
Alright, let’s get going.
Tenda noticed that I was about to turn around and go back to everyone else’s place, so he quickly flipped the wheelchair around and followed me.
