I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 372
Sorry for the late update
TL rant : Idk what these people that think causing trouble on purpose is fun.
When I woke up, I saw the ceiling of the inn where we used to stay.
I wondered why I was in such a place, and woke up in state for the time being.
Re, recovery water recovery water ……!
“That startled …… me.”
I see, we were attacked at Haneyasumi.
I was hit, but it looks like I wasn’t dead.
At least my wounds are healed, and the recovery water should have healed most of what’s broken.
Yup, I’m okay.
Nobody’s here now, but I wonder who …… carried me in.
Nah, that doesn’t matter. ……
“That was Reizen, wasn’t it? ……”
I saw his face for the last time.
Short black hair and dark eyes.
There is no way I could have mistaken him for someone else.
But what happened after that?
Is there anyone out there?
With that in mind, I deployed the haze manipulation first.
And then, someone seemed to be walking toward this room, and the door was immediately opened.
I knew from the silhouette that it was Uchikage who had entered, who seemed to be able to tell me the situation the best.
“Ouren-sama! You are awake!”
“Yea, I am. My bad, I made you worried.”
“Are you hurt?”
“I’ve recovered, so I’m fine now.”
He lightly patted his chest.
Somebody must have healed me, because there are no external wounds left.
I’ll have to thank them later.
Now that Uchikage is here, I’d like to ask him about what happened after that.
“Hey. What happened after that?”
“Yes, sir. The robed man who was supposed to be Reizen-dono went somewhere with the robed woman who was facing me.”
“You also noticed it, ……?”
“Yes. In addition, no one was injured here but Ouren-sama.”
If he knows that much, he doesn’t need to talk about it carelessly.
Now , if I recall, that move that parried my attack and swept my foot was definitely Reizen’s move.
Since I had often seen his moves in the dungeon and when quarrelling with adventurers, I remembered them.
But why did he attack us?
I didn’t know who the other guys were, as I expected, but …….
“There must be a reason.”
“That’s what I thought, too, and I’ve been looking into it. Please be prepared to listen a little, Ouren-sama.”
“What is it ……?”
“Prince Kreis has been kidnapped.”
“Uh, that prince?”
“Yes, that prince. It seems that the kidnappers are being investigated as members of the Vulpan Kingdom.”
This is something that only the people involved know about at the moment, but those who have the ability have been informed of this.
The guildmaster, as well as the two S-ranked thunder bows, have also been informed of this information.
We were told that there might be a connection between the disappearance of Reizen and the missing Prince Kreis.
Since they are already preparing for war, it is only a matter of time before the people of Salettana find out about this.
Uchikage had been researching this situation for some time, so it seems that he knew about this news.
As well as Houen.
In the meantime, they took Houen to the clinic for the time being and also took him to Irza’s place, but as I thought, they didn’t know anyone who had such skills or a good way to regain memories.
“Wait, wait, wait. How long have I been asleep?”
Isn’t my recovery speed slow?
Hey, heavenly voice, what’s going on here!
Ah, yes, that’s how you play along.
“I’ve done what we can do. But this time, we need to do something about Reizen-dono more than just regaining Houen-dono’s memory.”
“I guess so. ……”
I can’t imagine him betraying us that easily.
Or rather, I already have an idea why he attacked us.
“Did they take Prince Kreis hostage?”
“That’s the most likely possibility. Rumours of Prince Kreis and Reizen-dono have spread to other countries among the nobility. They must have known that if they took Prince Kreis as a hostage, Reizen-dono would not be able to do anything about it.”
“Well, they certainly had a standout relationship. ……”
The fact that an ordinary adventurer is staying in the royal family’s room is strange enough.
That’s not even a rumour, it’s a fact.
I guess, the nobles like to gossip around.
According to a more detailed interview, Prince Kreis’s father, King Klaus, surprisingly approved of the friendship between the two men.
I have never met him.
No, I don’t really want to meet him. ……
Back to the topic at hand, the news has been spreading among the maids and butlers.
From there, it propagated to various places and reached the people of Salettana.
When that happens, it is only a matter of time before information about the prince’s abduction is passed on to the rest of the country.
It has been roughly three months since Reizen and Prince Kreis met.
It was not surprising that other countries knew about this.
They took advantage of the situation so easily.
“So, the Kingdom of Vulpan?”
“Yes, it is. It is a large country located about 20 days away from the Kingdom of Salettana. We have no idea why they did this, but if this continues, war will surely break out.”
“So, ……, Reizen is now on the enemy’s side.”
“That’s what I think.”
“Isn’t this too much trouble ……?
“Only Ouren-sama will be able to handle it.”
His defensive power is unmatched.
His defense is mostly 50 times greater than mine.
What else he has under his sleeve is unknown, I don’t know if his status changed after his hibernation.
I have defense penetration, so if I have to deal with Reizen, I can give him an effective blow.
Anyone else would not be able to inflict even a scratch.
“…… But he was pretty serious, wasn’t he?”
“He was. It seems that the robed woman was using the substitute.”
“…You mean she’s still alive?”
“Yes. I thought I killed her, but when Ouren-sama fell, Reizen-dono also retreated. I did a follow-up attack, but all the attacks were repelled ……”
“When you went after her, Reizen carried the robed woman and ran away?”
“Yes. He moved with his explosive fist.”
“I remember that.”
When he came to rescue me, he also flew toward me with the explosive fist, right?
However, this is …….
“I don’t think we can avoid a fight with Reizen. ……”
“Yes, I suppose so.”
