I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 309
Chapter 7-29. The Devil
The word “devil” came out of the mouth of the voice of heaven.
He seems to know something about the devil.
“Is the devil that guy? The one with the silver wings ……!”
“There are several other devils, but I’m pretty sure they’re the ones you’re thinking of.”
“I know that you guys have already confronted them. Then it’s quicker to explain.”
The voice of heaven waved one hand and continued to talk in an illustrative tone.
“The devil hates humans very much. Even the last time they attacked the Kingdom of Salettana, it was obvious that they had excessive forces. They want to exterminate humans.”
That’s true, but I can’t help but wonder. Thankfully we’re able to stop them from doing so. There is a question that still puzzles me: Why did Dacia speak to us in such a way?”
“To catch you off guard.”
The voice of heaven said so in a cold tone.
It was obvious that it was a cold look, and that he despised the devil.
“They are devious. They ridicule their enemies who fall for their tricks. They will hit you where it hurts, as if this is what they need to do. You know what? Don’t ever let your guard down. Don’t believe a word they say. Besides, they may be about to make their move.”
We still don’t know where the devil is.
No information about them has come in.
It’s not surprising that they were doing something somewhere.
Who knows what kind of disaster-level danger they might be sending somewhere else.
The devil certainly said some strange things to us.
And now that we know that there is clearly a connection with the previous White Snake, we must at least be told what it is trying to do.
I have a feeling that they are after something big.
“Are they really just out to kill people?”
“Yes. I don’t know what’s beyond that. But I am sure that they will become a threat to humans. That’s why I reincarnated you to protect them.”
“I’ll keep what you’re saying in my mind, ……. But I’ll make sure to speak with the devil myself.”
“That’s fine. I don’t think they’ll ever talk to you.”
“That’s okay. I’m going to go to the place where the devil attacked anyway. We’ll find out what we can about it while we’re protecting the people.”
The first step is to get in touch with the devils …….
Without knowing what to expect, what they have to say will be important.
“Do you know where the next attack will be?”
“Of course I know. I’m one of the gods. Of course I know where the next attack will be.”
If only he was always like this, he would be a reliable guy.
Why couldn’t you have directed a little more of that kindness, or …… godliness, towards me?
I feel sorry for Houen, though. ……
“Tell me where.”
“…… where is- that.”
“You are friends with a girl named Alena, right? That’s where she’s from.”
I- I see, I always heard that it was the territory of Alena’s father, Azbal, so I had never heard of the official name of the territory. ……
However, that would mean that …… Alena’s hometown was raided twice, including by the slave traders!
“Uh-uh. ……! I’m sorry, aniki. ……! I’m a burden to you right now. ……”
“I can’t say you’re right. ……”
As for Reizen, he has now gone into hibernation because he is a tortoise.
It was a miracle that he woke up,……, but it will only be for now.
Even if he forces himself to follow along with me, he will be a burden.
Reizen clenched his fists with a look of deep regret.
Alena is one of us, and Reizen must have a greater desire to help Alena than most of us do.
He’s that kind of guy.
Of course, I won’t lose.
I’m not going to let them beat me.
“There’s no need to panic. The devils have only just decided where they’re going to attack next, and they’re probably just getting ready to move.”
“If that’s the case, we need to get ready too. ……”
“Lize, I know I’m asking the impossible, but what are you going to do?”
I was surprised to hear Houen call her name.
But she looks very apologetic and …….
“I’m sorry ……, I’m …….”
“No problem. You have someone to protect. If there is someone in this world you want to protect, it is only natural that you put them as your first priority.”
“That’s right. However, I’m going to leave the love stories out of this.”
“Well, as expected, I won’t ask for that at this point in time. ……”
Yes, thank goodness.
In that case, only me, Houen, and Alena can go to Bamil territory.
If possible, I’d like to have a little more force.
Should I ask Maria to help us?
She was involved in the fight against the devil, and she was doing a good job.
It would be reassuring if she came with us.
I would also like to borrow the help of the Knights, but that’s not going to be possible, so I’ll leave it at that.
“Voice of Heaven, how soon will the attack begin?”
“About two months.”
“That should be enough.”
Then we might be able to gather some information about the devil.
I’ll definitely have to talk to Irza about it.
“Houen, how far is the Bamil territory from here?”
“It’s the territory of the Kingdom of Garott, isn’t it? It is a territory a little further than the Zenki-village. So, ……”
“A week and three days, huh.”
“A week and four days is a safe estimate.”
From the Kingdom of Salettana to the Kingdom of Garott is eight days.
From the Kingdom of Garott to the Zenki-village is one day.
I estimated ten days since it was at the other end of the line, but …… it’s a little farther, isn’t it?
But if push comes to shove, I’ll borrow a flying dragon again.
As long as he’s there, we’ll be able to fly there in a single trip.
Once we get there, hopefully we will be able to talk to the devil.
It’s two months from now, so I’d better assume the snow is still coming down.
“Voice of Heaven.”
“I know, I know. Well, I wish you the best of luck. Hang in there.”
As the voice of heaven says this, the spotlight fades away.
We were awakened when our surroundings went completely dark.
[…..I had to return as human form as soon as possible….!]
