Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 309
“Viscount Yamano! An accident occurred at the explosives factory!” (Soldier)
In the evening, as I sat leisurely at my office seat, a cup of tea in one hand and checking over documents in the other, one of Count Bozes’ territorial soldiers came rushing in.
……Surrounded by four of our guards, of course.
No matter how little strategic value this small territory was, I would indeed not bring someone who has not been identified to me without taking any action, you know.
Besides, it was right after the assassination attempt. It’s not surprising that people around me would be on high alert even if I did not tell them to be.
……And, upon closer inspection, I recognized this soldier.
Right, he was one of the elite soldiers who escorted us during the “Wolf Fang, monster subjugation event for those two who could not participate in the absolute defense of the royal capital”.
It’s a waste to use elite people as mere messengers, but if “elite” means those who can travel fast on horseback, then it was a reasonable choice.
Or maybe to let my guard down, and he’s trying to lure me out with a fake messenger trick, or maybe, he’s just trying to eliminate the possibility of suspicion……
But the “lure me out” strategy won’t succeed with this kind of approach. I can always escape by transfer……
No, that’s not important. Now is not the time for this!
“There’s an emergency! I’m going to Boses’ territory for a while. Please take care of the rest here!
Take me to the horse you rode on!” (Mitsuha)
“Ye-, yes!…… Ah, no, I’ve pushed it too hard, so it can’t leave now without a break……
Besides, if two people ride on it… ” (Soldier)
“Come on, just go!” (Mitsuha)
I decided to leave immediately, going through the soldier who seemed to want his horse to rest.
Of course, we don’t have a riding horse, and even if we did, I couldn’t ride one.
Silver was only a horse to pull my carriage and was now left at a ranch in the royal capital.
“This is the horse you rode in on, right? Do you have any other luggage? Is that all the equipment you have on the horse?” (Mitsuha)
“Ye-, yes…” (Soldier)
I took the horse and the soldier to the Bozes’ territory!!!
“This is…” (Soldier)
The soldier was surprised to find that the scenery around him had suddenly changed and he was now on the familiar seaside of Count Bozes’ territory.
No, you’ve been transitioned before when we were hunting orcs!
…… Well, it’s the “angel’s miraculous work”, and except for Colette-chan and Sabine-chan, this person was the only one in the world who had experienced it twice. That must be very exciting.
An explosives factory, of course, was not something you build in the middle of a city.
It was built in a place where no one lives nearby, not so far from the shipyard and the artillery prototype factory, but far enough that it would not affect any of them in case of an accident.
……Yeah, in other words, the beach.
And the explosives factory was… still in the research and prototype stage, and mass production was still a long way off, but I am naturally involved in the construction and research… which was why I was able to transfer here with pinpoint accuracy…
“Not much has changed on the outside……” (Mitsuha)
“Ye-, yes, it wasn’t such a big explosion…
However, part of the research facility blew up and some people were injured……” (Soldier)
I was wrong!
It would have taken 3-4 hours for the messenger soldier to come, no matter how fast his horse was. Besides, there was an accident and it was dealt with. The time it took for the Count to get a complete picture and the time it took to be able to contact me.
After such a long time, there was no way that the injured should have been left lying around at the accident site.
“I’ll be on my way! Thank you for your hard work!” (Mitsuha)
I know the location of the hospital in this city… or rather, the clinic.
“Where are the wounded!” (Mitsuha)
……Ah, it’s Hime Miko-sama!” (Maid)
Yeah, my face and name were selling well even in this territory.
“Injured people!” (Mitsuha)
“…… Ye-, yes, right this way!” (Maid)
The galley maid, who seemed to have sensed that I did not need any unnecessary greetings or follow-up chit-chat, immediately showed me the way.
“Right here!” (Maid)
When she opened the door…
Of the eight beds, six were occupied.
There was no such thing as a private room here, no matter how severe the injury.
The only way to care for all the patients and monitor their condition with a small number of people was to bring them all together in one place.
If you don’t want that, the only way would be to treat yourself at home.
And the six people lying on the bed were…
The four of them were, fine, that’s good. There were injuries here and there, but they do not seem to be life-threatening or permanent injuries.
It may leave scars, but a man’s scar was his medal. In the future, when the full-scale production of gunpowder begins, he will be able to boast about it to his children and grandchildren. This scar became the cornerstone of a great invention to protect the country……
As for the other two.
One was missing his left arm from the elbow.
The other one had no blood on his face and was unconscious…… probably due to massive bleeding. If this continues, their lives would be in danger.
Time is running out!
“Captain, two stretchers and four people to carry them, right now!” (Mitsuha)
“O…… o ~u……” (Captain)
This is a mercenary company, they probably have at least stretchers on their transport trucks and personnel to carry the wounded.
The captain, who was in his office doing paperwork, quickly gathered stretchers and personnel.
“……Why are you in line with them, Captain?” (Mitsuha)
“No, I’m going. I can’t let my men go to a dangerous place by themselves!” (Captain)
You say cool things, but you just want to go to another world, too, aren’t you?…
Oh well. We don’t have time for this right now.
“Alright, transfer!” (Mitsuha)
We appeared in the treatment room, in the clinic.
“Get the unconscious man over there and the one without his left arm on a stretcher. We’ll take them to a hospital on Earth.” (Mitsuha)
“Roger that!” (Captain)
Under the command of the captain, the team members work quickly and efficiently.
The people at the clinic and other patients were aghast, but no one tried to stop us from doing what we do.
Well, that’s how much credit I have.
“Tell the Count that I have taken the seriously wounded to the place ‘where Alexis-sama was treated’.
I’ll be right back, shortly.
Then, I’ll leave the rest to you. And you guys, focus on healing. See you later.
The destination, of course, is there…
