I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 86
T/N : Sorry for the late update, I’ve been taking care IRL stuff, and my laptop is dead. Doing all of this in phone is quite difficult.
Volume 3 -Companions-
Chapter 3-1. Confusion
I froze when a voice of heaven notified me that I could be human.
I kept processing that in my head, I’m unable to understand what had happened and how in the world it had happened.
But no matter how much I thought about it, I don’t even know what the conditions for becoming human had been met.
I just wanted to know the conditions regarding this transform thing .
I just want more information, please tell me more about it.
Hello Mr. Voice of Heaven? Can you tell me more?
Oi, don’t ignore me.
Can you just tell me how and why I can be a human ?!
[The individual Ouren has the conditions for becoming a human(-oid) being. The conditions for becoming a human(-oid) figure are :
– Possess a mass equal to or greater than that of humans in the evolution process.
– Keep listening to human conversations and observe them.
– See various human(-oid) figures.
– Learn about human society.
– Do good deeds to humans.
When these five conditions are met, the individual Ouren has unlocked the feature to be a human(-oid) figure.]
Unexpectedly, the voice of heaven answered my question like usual.
I think it said something similar in the past but I ignored it. What annoys me is why it never mentioned it at the right time or when I need it. (when in Zenki-village right after he took a bath)
However, I forget all of my anger when its mentioned that I can have a humanoid figure.
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Shit just got real …
I did it … I did it! I can be human!
Finally I can speak! And I can taste the food…!
I can’t stay this way.
I want to be a human right now …
When I realized that, I suddenly looked around.
There are Asure, Baltic, Gilnia, and Targa.
And there were the Oni brothers, Tenda and Uchikage, and also Satella.
The discussion had already begun, and everyone had a difficult expression and everyone was listening to Asure’s words.
Let’s stay calm.
I think it would be bad if I suddenly became a human here.
Maybe the oni is fine with me, but it’s a different matter with Asure and the rest who are human.
And I’m not pretty sure either.
Anyone would be surprised if a monster like me suddenly transformed.
And it definitely makes a scene.
If that happens, it will be inevitable that the guards will come here, and in the worst case I may be caught.
And another bad thing, I’m on top of Satella’s lap.
If I transform into a human as it is, It will look like I trample a little girl , won’t I ?
As I thought, I can’t do it right now.
They were discussing important things, of course that would be bad if I interrupted them.
I’m not lying if I want to be a human as soon as possible, but I must read the air around me beforehand.
Let’s secretly transform later …
Somehow I just realized about another thing.
You see, if I became a human as it is, I would definitely be naked.
If there’s only men in this room, I’m fine with that, but there’s Satella too …
Her evaluation of me will drop out of the chart.
Anyway, if I ended up not looking like an actual human, it would be difficult to find some clothes that suit me.
But if I look like a human, I’ll end up stark naked too.
I’m not really sure if my strength is the same as a human too after I transformed.
By the way, their discussion is still ongoing.
“It’s good that you want to go to help Alena, but what about Azbal-sama’s territory? What I am worried about is, there is a chance there is another country or territory planning to attack Azbal-sama’s territory from how vulnerable it is currently.”
“We can’t wait any longer, we need to rescue Alena before the information spreads further.”
“That is quite a difficult thing to do, you see ~. I think rushing things is a bad decision, no? As Asure said earlier, the current condition of Azbal territory is very vulnerable, especially against information spreading. Then, did you think the other countries did not notice that Azbal territory was attacked? Of course they know. I think it’s better to officially report this kind of matter after Asure’s coronation ceremony and inform the other countries. Thanks to my father and big bro who did the thing. Me and Asure are the one who clear up the slave traders’s slave hunt. I hope the other countries will pardon this country’s dark times.”
“I hope it’s that simple …”
Hmm … The story goes a long way while I’m confused with myself.
It seems that he will announce it to the public once again about the fact that the slave traders in Garrot were hunting slaves, and then go to explain it to other countries.
If they don’t do that, it seems Asure will be the one that gets blamed rather than the previous king.
I don’t know how many countries there are around here, but I’m sure Asure will get busier from now on.
Perhaps Asure knew that, he put his hand on his forehead with a grave looking expression.
It feels like he is completely wiping the king and Rudd’s butt.
No matter how careful he is as the country leader, his disappointment can be seen right away.
Well, everyone around him is going to help him, so do your best.
“Then, how about we recruit someone to rescue Alena … is there anyone who wants to do it?”
I shouted in my heart and raised my tail.
Then Satella grabbed my tail and lowered it.
“That’s a good idea, Targa….. Can you do this task?”
I raised my tail again.
And I also raised my head to indicate my intention, but Satella held down my head and tail with both hands and lowered it.
I would really appreciate it if you stop doing it.
“No, I don’t know Alena’s face in the first place, so it may take some time to find it.”
I know what she looks like! Goddamnit!
No matter how much I tried to notice them, Satella just thinks that I’m entertaining her. How can I inform them that I can do that!
Satella! Don’t pin my tail down!
Aaargh, this body is so inconvenient!
Then, 【Infinite Water Manipulation】!
I made a raised hand motion with my magic.
My hand of water that caught everyone’s attention.
Asure and Baltic were surprised to see this, but Gilnia nodded as he was convinced.
“Oh right! By the way, Ouren-dono is the one who rescued Satella!”
“What? This snake did that?”
Targa looks at me with a curious gaze.
As he said ‘this snake’, the onis gave him the killing aura.
“Yes. What I remember is, Ouren-dono was always at my side at that time … When Satella visited my house, Satella knew about Ouren-dono …. PPlease pardon me Satella. You said that you were helped by Ouren-dono. Was that so? Satella. “
“Well … That means Ouren-dono already knew about Satella and acted on its own … I would like to thank you again, Ouren-dono”
Asure thanked me with a smile.
Well, as a result, it looks like I’m helping Asure.
Actually, I was asked by Alena …
That’s why I want to go to help Alena!
Someone please notice!
“… Ah, Snake-san, Snake-san. Who did you hear about my father’s jewelry gift?”
Satella put me on the desk and asked me that.
By the way, I had never taught about jewels other than Satella.
I heard that from Alena, but it’s really difficult to explain it to them.
But now that Satella is next to me, I can explain it somehow.
I created water with my skill to create a life-size model of Alena.
It’s all made of water, so even if the shape is neatly arranged, the outline is transparent, so it’s not very visible.
Therefore, I made a light green outline with 【Great Heal】.
I hope this looks a little decent …
Seeing the Alena model made of water, Satella ‘s eyes shined and shouts in a loud voice.
“Ooh! That is Alena!”
“What? Is this child Alena? Does that mean that Ouren-don has met Alena!”
“Is that so?
I nodded and notified them that I knew.
I was relieved that the story finally went well.
If this is the case, the rescue task will be given to me.
However, there are many things that I can’t do on my own, so I’d like Tenda and Uchikage to follow me …
However, if that happens, only Tenda will have to return to Zenki-village once.
Post-reporting is important.
It’s going to be a quarrel as to which one goes with me, but at that time I’ll push it against Tenda and bring Uchikage with me.
Baltic, who was listening to the story, nodded as if he was convinced.
I wonder if it was something that fell into his mind.
“I see. Did you hear from Alena about the jewel that Satella was talking about? In that case, it would be better to leave Alena’s rescue to you. You are also the one who rescued Satella. There is also another reason, and since you are a snake, your appearance won’t be suspicious, then you are very suitable for this task. “
“Baltic-nii-sama, please ask Ouren-dono first before you decide something …”
“Ah, my bad. I forgot about that. Ouren-dono, can I leave it to you?”
That’s what I want to say from the beginning.
Besides, these guys are going to get busy with the country, there’s no way I’ll leave this matter to these guys.
Both Targa and Gilnia are his vassals, and their work must be piled up.
I hope Gilnia doesn’t overdo it again …
I mean, it ’s okay just for that last time.
At least please don’t neglect your sleep time.
Asure was relieved that I agreed with Baltic’s opinion, but I proceeded to do something in front of Gilnia.
I struck Gilnia’s neck with my tail, they were wondering what I was doing.
A shock wave is created by automatic passive skill 【Defense Penetration】.
Of course, I adjust it to the minimum so that it won’t be fatal.
Gillnia, who was attacked suddenly, screamed “Ugh” then sat and slept deeply on the sofa, leaving his entire weight on the backrest.
The others who saw it seemed to be really surprised, but only Targa remained normal.
Asure spoke to me as if he was struck by lighning.
“Hol’up, Ouren-dono !? What the hell are you doing …!”
“AH, Asure-sama. That’s fine.”
“Eh? What do you mean, Targa?”
“You see … He hasn’t slept for about five days. I’ve been working with him since we came back … Maybe Ouren-dono wants him to rest? Right?
I nodded to Targa’s words.
No matter how much recovery skill you use to heal your body, you should be tired mentally.
There is no way a skill would be that convenient.
If I don’t make him sleep, I’m afraid his performance wouldn’t be stable if he goes on like before.
I won’t cast any recovery skill on him from now on, so if he keeps going like this, his body and mind would break eventually.
“That’s insane …”
“Well, he is going to be okay. I’ll put the sleeping Gilnia in the guest room. Excuse me.”
“Ah, thanks for your help.”
Targa lifts Gilnia’s semi armored body and carries him on his shoulder.
Even though he is a vassal, he behaves very roughly.
Targa left the room as it was.
Asure who saw them frowned as if he had another problem.
“Hmm … it seems like you’ve had a lot of trouble …”
“Well, isn’t that fine. It’s Asure who left the work to Gilnia, right? It means his loyalty to Asure is extraordinary to work hard enough to stay up all night for five days.”
“That’s right, but …”
“Then we have to work harder.”
“You’re- … that’s right. We are going to be busier later.”
“Okay, the matter is almost settled. I’ll do something about Azbal’s territory. Well, Tenda and Uchikage? What do you guys want to do?”
Baltic looks towards Tenda and Uchikage.
Tenda and Uchikage once looked at each other.
“I don’t have the skills to rescue people. Uchikage, can you go to help Alena with Ouren-sama?”
“Alright, leave it to me.”
I was surprised that the discussion was unexpectedly peaceful.
I thought it’s going to be a lot of dispute, but … isn’t that kind of thing kinda pain in the neck?
It’s good to be on good terms.
I couldn’t leave Satella here, so I decided to bring her to rescue Alena.
Satella knows the most about Alena, and her information should be useful in rescuing Arena.
Above all, I want to reassure Alena when we meet next time.
It may be a dangerous journey, but Uchikage also came with me and it shouldn’t be a problem.
And I can transform into a humanoid figure too.
“Is the discussion settled? Then you can take a rest in the castle today. I’ll have the carriage ready by tomorrow morning … I hope you are ready to dispatch tomorrow morning.”
“We are fine with that. What about Tenda?”
“Oh, I’m going back to the Zenki-village. I’m grateful for the offer, but I must meet Raiki-sama soon. I have to go to report on all of this after all …”
“Oh … I see. Can you tell Raiki-dono that I’m going to visit when the situation calmed down?”
“Aah, Raiki-sama will be happy too. Then we’ll meet there later.”
Tenda lightly bows to Asure and Baltic and leaves the room.
We didn’t have any topic to discuss, so we left the room following Tenda.
