Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 62
Visitors from the Sea 2
As a result of consultation with the King, I was delegated with full authority.
No, why, why would he delegate the full authority of the country to a [New Sprout Viscount]?
Well, if the King says that, [There is no one who can grasp the situation, the power relationship and their characteristics, more than Mitsuha], that would be right.
But, since it’s not possible to do so much unreasonable and selfish action, I consulted about the general policy, with the correspondence of each situation variously as a flowchart.
… But it turned out to become quite a radical policy.
Well~, if you find that the target of your opponent is invasion, you don’t have to forgive them.
Let’s hope that it’s about peaceful purposes.
But that possibility is thin though.
It seems that the Marquis Icebringer, will leave the capital tomorrow to lead the troops, but it’s better if everyone arrive in 4 days without a heavy cavalry on horseback….
Now then, the next is preparing our troops, the Lord’s army.
Isn’t it about time that everyone have gathered?
Mitsuha: 「Gentlemen, this is WAR.」 (TN: Tanya Von Degurechaff LOL)
No, it’s just preparation for combat.
The Lord’s army gathered, 5 officers and 36 soldiers, a total of 41 people.
Those who cannot be summoned are not gathered. It’s just the ones that currently on-duty.
It’s not a situation that requires the full power of the Lord’s Army.
Mitsuha: 「As you can see, there are ships from other countries, that are anchored offshore. It will probably land tomorrow morning, if it’s a friendly envoy then it’s good, but if the purpose is to force an invasion or demand something outrageous, then the use of lethal force is permitted. The King has also given us permission to do so. However, even in that case, you should never dabble with it. Be sure to let the enemies to do the first move. We will make them the bad guys so that we can play the self defense part. Are we clear!」
Everyone silently nodded.
The importance of war is not only in military power, but also in public opinion, justice, and appeal to other countries and is being taught during the drill.
Mitsuha: 「Do not attack until I give out the order. In the case that I got into a situation where I cannot give orders, follow the instructions of the Commander Major William-san. Until the orders are issued, it will only exists as a threat effect that there is also a military force in this place, and this should somehow make things calm. Never be surprised, do not panic, do not expose any strange appearance. Are we clear!」
Lord’s Army: 「「「「Oh!」」」」
This time, I got an answer.
Mitsuha: 「Well, I will dismiss you for today. Gather here again tomorrow morning, before sunrise. Dismissed!」
All the soldiers that were scattered, have faces that looked a little anxious, but somewhat excited at the same time.
I wonder if they are scared……
Well~, I’m not really planning on killing everyone.
Then, afterwards, let’s finish the meeting with the remaining officers, William-san and 4 former mercenaries, then head back.
The next morning.
I woke up 2 hours before sunrise.
Because the lord must not be seen with a sleepy eye, when soldiers gathered.
1 hour later, most of the soldiers had gathered, everyone is motivated enough.
No, because the sunrise, I saw a lot of spare time and said. ( いや、日の出前、というのも、かなりの余裕を見て言ったんだけどなぁ。)
The enemies will not leave so early.
… I also have decided to call them [enemy].
What else shall I call those guys?
I wonder whether they are even [guys] or not.
It seems that the majority of the soldiers came here without eating, so let’s make something and eat for the time being.
The chef and the apprentice Nelly-chan, are already up and starting to make breakfast, so let’s ask them to make more.
Nelly-chan, was stunned by the sudden increase of the amount of meals, which has more than doubled.
No, no need for a proper meal! Just ask the maids for help!
Even if there is no side dish, it is enough if there is something to put inside the stomach, and also a warm drink. Of course, I will eat the same thing. (TN: boodle fight!)
On the battlefield, the officers also eat the same things as the soldiers. This is a very important thing.
Along with sunrise, I ordered the people in the fishing village to evacuate to the town.
This has been announced yesterday, so the evacuation goes smoothly.
Even if its not easy to escape from the territory with household goods, there are no confusions because its just lightweight Whatever the outcome of the negotiations, we will probably be able to tell them to return by noon.
It’s about two hours after sunrise.
Looking through the binoculars, there was some movement on the ship.
The appearance of unloading the short boat and several holes opened in the broadside.
Yes, it’s a ship’s cannon, was it still loading…
It’s more likely that they will threaten the first-time opposition with a canon fire, before giving out the messenger for negotiations. Well, I was expecting it though.
Anyway, let me keep in touch.
Sharing of information is important. These are the things in case of emergency. Even if I have something to do, I’m hoping that the deal will not be delayed as much as possible.
Mitsuha: [Checkmate King One, Checkmate King One, this is White Rook, Over.]
Sabine: 『Oneesama, how are you doing?』
Although I called the King, Sabine-chan answered. You are King Seven, you know …….
Mitsuha: 「Where’s the King?」
King: 『 I’m here. We’re all here.』
Oh, I wonder if Sabine-chan’s room became something like a war room….
Mitsuha: 「 They moved. They are lowering a small boat for landing. And they are still loading the cannon. About 20 gates on one side, it protrudes towards in this direction, most likely to intimidate us. 」
King: 『Oh, as we expected, huh…. Well then, as we discussed yesterday, I ask of you. Do not push yourself! The ship will return to its home country after a while, so I don’t think they have enough force for the occupation. Even if you allow a temporary occupation, you can take it back right away.』
That’s not acceptable.
When the ship that once occupied the territory returns. [It’s time to pick up food and treasure, and many slaves.] And they will triumph because they won.
– Treasure? From who?
– Slave? Who are you talking about?
Forgive me but!
Mitsuha: 「 I will not overdo it, but I will not stand and do nothing. We don’t have anyone to offer for slavery.」
Again, there’s no reply ….
I wonder if he’s consulting something with everyone.
Well~ then, I will just continue to broadcast from here.
Mitsuha: 「Your Highness, from now on, please call me with a code name, and not with my real name. Both when communicating, and when talking over there. That way, they won’t know who you’re talking to, even if there is someone who is listening near you.
King: 『O..kay, So what should I call you?』
In my mind, the DVD with the black and white image that I watched with my brother, revives.
The story of the bitter old man who fights on the battlefield for the motherland.
I heard that person who played the leading role, died being caught in a helicopter accident, during the filming of the war scene in the movie.
Everyone says it’s an accident, but I don’t think so.
That man was killed in the battlefield.
He fought for his country and made a brutal death, on his own Battlefield.
I will call myself this name, to show my intention to protect this country by calling on the name of my [princess of thunder], and the name of the role of that person’s classic work.
Mitsuha: 「……Sergeant …Please call me Sergeant Thunder.」
Then, let’s leave the operation of the radio to my Butler Anton, and head out.
(Walks out of the room very slowly, while the epic war song plays in the background.)
