I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 384
Sigh, what a tiring day, not just today, but mostly everyday……
9-18. Tracking the Presence
The moment I realized that Reizen was here in the Vulpan Kingdom, my alertness level went through the roof.
There must be other people with him, and we could not let our guard down.
I and Uchikage were able to eliminate our presence one after the other, and we had just finished checking out the entire downtown area.
Though it didn’t take much time, we needed a breather now.
“Maaan-! So tired!”
“We’ve been doing the same work for hours.”
“Let’s take a break …….”
With a small nod at this suggestion, Uchikage leaned his back against the wall.
No matter how much he was trying to keep out of sight, he was still very careful when it came to covert activity.
After several hours of this, and even more walking around the entire downtown area to check everything out.
No wonder we were tired.
Now we were in what looked like a back alley.
No one seems to pass through this area, and no one was there when I checked the haze.
Not even a cat.
So now, all that’s left is the noble district …….
There are some other forts, but that area should be the last one.
The guards should be very strong.
“Hmmm, so the enemy is the nobility after all.”
“Sounds like it. It’s ……, and the devil is leading this case, aren’t they?”
“Yea. According to Lize’s sources.”
“Sigh. I don’t understand. Why are they trying to start a war ……. No, we already know that the devil is not our enemy, so now we have to find the devil’s enemy ……?”
“If we could do that, we wouldn’t have all this trouble.”
What in the world are those guys fighting against?
A curse that will kill you if you tell it, that’s too scary.
What did they have to do to get such a curse ……?
Well, whatever it is, I don’t forgive them for taking advantage of Reizen.
The only reason why I’m angry.
“…… what do you think of the situation now, Uchikage?’
“In my opinion, ……. What the devil is trying to do is never acceptable. But I cannot say why they do so. If they are forbidden to communicate, they must say things in a ridiculously roundabout way. So much so that we don’t even know. ……”
“Is it so that they don’t get caught by the conditions for triggering the curse?”
In that case, it looks like we’ll have to listen to the devil’s words from now on to derive the true meaning of their words.
Did …… Houen realize that?
He might be able to understand the meaning of their words that are lying dormant deep down, but …….
Hmmm, I don’t know.
After letting out one sigh, I stand up.
That’s as good a break as I can take.
“Well, I don’t know anything right now, even if I think about it. I’ll try to catch the devil when I find them and ask them about it. Maybe we’ll find out something.”
“Right. Well then……”
Uchikage concentrates and starts to track the presence.
We find two that are close by.
He activated his ‘assassins’ to eliminate his own presence, and walked away.
I used the assassin in the same way and followed Uchikage.
This skill is really useful.
If you pass someone, they really don’t recognize you.
It’s like I’ve become adept at it before I know it.
Then, Uchikage pointed to a building.
A large mansion.
After nodding my head, I check the inside of the building with my haze.
Several servants and nobles were moving around in the house.
Nothing special was found on the first and second floors, but I was able to find a basement while I was searching.
I quickly checked it out and found that it appeared to be a treasury.
Again, another miss.
I shook my head.
Uchikage gave a small nod and pointed to a building nearby.
He pointed to a huge church.
Why would Reizen had stopped by the church, I don’t know, but I muttered in my mind that it would be troublesome if such people were mixed in with the enemy side.
I shifted the haze that had been deployed to explore the church.
There was no one in the building, which was designed like a church with many chairs, stone statues, chandeliers, and huge bells.
I shake my head and tell Uchikage.
“……The presence …… is very strong. He must have stayed here for a while.”
“That means ……”
“The church people could be involved, too.”
I hate this …….
That is a bunch of powerful people. …….
They probably have other power, different from the kingdom, and I don’t want to fight the religious believers, it’s too much trouble and I don’t want to do it.
God, it’s tedious all at once. …….
What kind of people are taking advantage of you, Reizen.
No, it’s better to think that the devil is using the church people too.
They’ll use the ones who are easy to use.
I don’t know how they are using these people, but it seems like we have a lot more enemies all at once.
Let me report this when I get back. ……
Uchikage turns around suddenly.
I know he’s telling me to be quiet because he has his index finger on his mouth.
Immediately use the assassin to kill my presence.
Thinking about what it is, I deploy the haze manipulation, but there are no bothersome figures in the surroundings.
However, Uchikage pointed in one direction.
It was another large mansion.
Immediately, I deployed the haze and investigated the inside.
Dozens of soldiers were standing guard in room after room.
Thinking that something was out of place, I covered the entire mansion with the haze.
Several people dressed like nobles were discussing something.
From the way they were moving, they didn’t seem to be in a very good mood, but I didn’t care about them.
Looking for something else, I search thoroughly.
There was a child tied up on the second floor.
I can’t tell if it’s really Prince Kreis, since I can only make out a silhouette of him.
However, judging from the atmosphere and the situation, there was a good chance that the child was Prince Kreis.
I confirmed this and gave a small nod.
The presence of Prince Kreis.
And on top of that, I had the child’s presence checked by the haze manipulation.
No doubt about it.
Uchikage nodded, convinced that it was definitely Prince Kreis.
“Let’s go back.”
