I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 85
2-60. Citizens’ Reaction
Chapter 2 is complete.
* In the postscript, I write about the past, the oncoming posting date and time, and the new work.
Please read if you are interested.
The cheers of the people echo throughout the country.
When I wondered what had happened, the soldiers that were in the Zenki-village returned at the perfect time.
The people who noticed them didn’t seem to know what had happened, but the fact that the allegedly dead soldiers had returned gradually spread, and they are now rejoicing at their return.
Soldiers who have parents and children have a bad expression saying they have made their families cry.
It seems that some soldiers were unpleased rather than pleased in some places, but I would like them to discuss their problem when they are at home.
Soldiers who do not have a family are often teased by their friends or their fellow soldiers.
The atmosphere of each soldier also varies from being praised, being pleased, and being angry.
Even so, the soldiers did not forget what Asure had told them.
Soldiers are discussing whether Asure has really avoided unnecessary battles.
I was relieved that everyone was welcoming their reunion in various ways.
It’s the same with Gilnia and Targa, looking at the scene with a somewhat satisfied look.
“Somehow, I’m relieved …”
“Ah. As if the big burden has been thrown out of my shoulder.”
“Hey, you’ll be busier from now on, you know? Maybe you shouldn’t relax too much?”
“That’s fine as long as it’s not staying awake for five day straight.”
“Five what? Eh, you … what the he- … are you okay?”
“That was nothing.”
Gillnia hits his chest with a smug smile.
I wanted to say that he’s able to do that because of me but I’m planning to put him to sleep physically later, so I decided to let him say whatever he wants.
Well, all the plans are well executed.
Perhaps the most important factor was the supportiveness of the soldiers and vassals … Maybe they’re already hated the king and Rudd for a long time.
I don’t know what kind of things they have done that makes them hated like that.
I don’t think it’s possible to turn all your people into your enemies.
I can say that is kind of a talent on its own.
The citizens are calming down slowly, while watching the images on the magic crystal.
I’m sure they are worried about the future of this country.
In the projection, I can see the king and Rudd are taken away.
Apparently the scenario was already done before I knew it.
Asure was standing in front of the throne and giving a speech.
“Everyone. I am going to be the king starting from today and I will work hard to make this country better. Please pardon me for showing you the unsightly scene earlier. As for the soldiers. You have worked well for the last few days. I would not be able to stand here without your support. Dear my people, has your family member that has been enslaved returned yet? I also need your help to rebuild this country. I will reward all soldiers tomorrow. Of course, for their family too. “
Asure resumed his speech to the citizens facing the video crystal.
He apologizes too much, is a hard worker, and he likes rushing things, but I think that was to make Asure as himself.
The people are quietly watching the image projector.
Asure took a breath and continued his speech while looking at the video crystal again.
“The behavior of my father and brother so far … I can’t say anything besides I am sorry for the disgrace of the royal family. All of you had a hard time until now. However, from now on, my brother, Prince Baltic and I, as the new king will rebuild this country. However, it is impossible for just the two of us to do it. We also need help from the vassals, soldiers, and you, the citizens. Furthermore, adventurers. Would you like to help us too? Let’s rebuild this country together! Let’s make the Kingdom of Garrot great again!”
I could see the people’s cheers from the projector.
The people also cheer in response to Asure’s speech.
Gilnia and Targa also cheered, but only Satella did not.
Apparently the people are also going to cooperate with Asure.
The cheers continued for a while, and finally it began to be quiet after a while.
Their tension … seems to have finally subdued.
It was only for a short time but it feels so long … long story short, Asure was able to take the throne safely.
For the time being, I may not need to be here anymore.
Now, let’s move to help Arena.
The overly high tension finally subdued, and the people are going to live their daily lives as usual.
Gilnia and Targa also have to return to the castle to help Asure.
Besides, it seems that the coronation ceremony must be held in order to officially become the king.
Originally, the king had to perform the coronation ceremony, but currently there is no king.
So it seems that the priest of the church will be the one to perform the coronation ceremony.
We decided to head to the royal castle, thinking that the royal capital was still going to be noisy.
Why me too …
Finally the castle becomes quiet, and the soldiers have returned to their post as the guard.
I follow Gilnia and Targa while being held by Satella.
Gilnia and Targa enter the castle through a tightly guarded gate.
Satella was looking around in the glittering castle with her eyes sparkling.
We walk down the corridor, which is quite luxuriously decorated.
The corridor is wide and the castle itself is large, so you may get lost if you walk without a guide.
But Gilnia and Targa walk on without any hesitation.
Occasionally maids and soldiers pass by, but everyone bows and waits until Gilnia and Targa pass by.
As expected, are they actually a nobleman rather than vassals …?
Their composure is different.
After walking for a while, it seems that we arrived at our destination.
There was also a gorgeous gate, uselessly decorated with candlesticks on either side.
It was so gorgeous that I hesitated to even touch the door, but Gilnia did not hesitate to touch the handle and open the door.
A desk and a sofa were placed in the center of the room.
There is a small candlestick on it, and although the sun is still up, the candles are lit.
Paintings are hung on the walls, the windows of the room are open and a cool breeze is coming in.
And there was an unknown person on the couch, also, there were also Asure, Tenda, and Uchikage as well.
Asure stood up when he saw us.
“Asure-sama, we are back.”
“Well done! You really helped me back there…”
“Hey, Asure-sama. You should not talk with us casually like that, because you’re going to be a king …”
“Oops … that’s right. I’m used to it.”
After a word from Gilnia, Asure scratches his cheeks and staggers.
It’s true that the king who talks casually may be liked by the people, they wouldn’t be seen as dignified people.
This kind of thing will often require dignity and will need to be fixed.
When Tenda and Uchikage find me, they stand up and approach.
Satella isn’t scared of them and is holding me.
“Ouren-sama. The plans worked. The war would definitely be avoided.”
“But … a girl named Alena is still captured over there. Now we have to go to the Kingdom of Saletana and rescue her.”
“Oh, I’m already taking care of that. It’s an easy matter.”
A short man nods and mutters as if he was impressed by himself.
I really don’t know who this person is, so I’d like him to introduce himself …
The person looked at me like something interesting.
“So what’s that snake? I’ve never seen a white snake …”
Tenda and Uchikage react to his words.
I was trying to stare at him with a lot of killing intent, so before he said anything stupid, I gave him a strong blow with my tail. He seems to have made a blunder this time, he holds his head and falls in agony, it’s not a big deal, bear with it.
The short man looked surprised at first, but he didn’t get upset.
Asure who were watching the scene looked indescribable, but they seemed to notice something and explained to me.
“Oh, it was the first time for Baltic-nii-sama and Ouren-dono met each other. I would like to introduce Ouren-dono. This is my brother, Baltic-nii-sama. Baltic-nii-sama, this white snake- according to the onis, the snake has its own name, it is Ouren-dono. ”
“Is that so! Interesting! Nice to meet you, Ouren-dono. I’m Baltic, Asure’s older brother. Because of this, I’m often mistaken for a child, but I’m an adult!”
Oh, is this Baltic guy Asure’s older brother?
I’ve heard it somewhere vaguely.
However, his atmosphere is quite different from Rudd.
It seems that he received a very good education.
I also bow my head to thank him for the time being.
And Baltic looked at me with interest again.
“Oh … is it true that he understands our language? It’s amazing.”
“That’s right, Baltic-dono … just like what you say, Ouren-sama is a generous person. However, you used the wrong wording toward a sacred creature that we Oni praise!”
Tenda was saying something again, so I’ll hit him again with my tail.
I’m not that generous.
And also, I’m not something big like deity or similar being.
I felt that the way I treated Tenda was getting messy, but even if I was generous, it was the onis who had a broad heart …
I’m not something special.
Baltic was laughing at us.
Baltic looks like a child, but the way he spoke is somewhat immature.
However, I think there is a reason why we’re called here….
They didn’t talk about it yet.
“Ah, pardon me for making you all stand like that, let’s sit down and talk. Come on, sit down.”
Asure encourages everyone to sit down.
Maybe he was worried about being told by Gilnia, he started to act so as not to use casual words as much as possible.
Satella has no idea why she’s surrounded by adults. She seems to be a little uncomfortable.
After confirming that everyone had sat down, Asure looked at them once and then slowly opened his mouth.
“Okay. As Uchikage said, if we don’t rescue Alena, the conflict will keep arising. But we can’t act openly. I think everyone understands this.”
Apparently it was a meeting to think about the plans to rescue Alena.
This kind of topic needs to be heard properly.
I can finally go to help her. Please wait a bit longer.
[Report. You are confirmed to have enough good deeds.]
What is it? I’m not really sure what kind of report is that, but what’s this?
[The feature to be a humanoid being has been granted]
This completes Chapter 2!
