Chapter 32 Part 1: (Spoiler)

 


「Something bad’s happened Master!」

Risha ran into my room in the mansion with a panicked look on her face.

「What happened?」
「Jo-Joseph-san is…!」
「Joseph?」

Joseph was one of the citizens of my first town —Akito—.

He was among the first humans that I had turned back from long clawed apes.

He should’ve been in a different town right now.

「Did something happen to Joseph?」
「J-just please come!」

Risha was panicking so asking her was useless.

It couldn’t be helped so I left my room with her.

Joseph was on the ground in front of the mansion.

「Joseph!」

I slightly panicked and ran over.

「Ahh, Akito-san」

It seems like Joseph had already been healed.

His clothes were completely torn and covered in blood even though his injuries had been healed.

Mira was standing next to him holding some panacea.

After praising her for treating him and earning a little extra magic charge, I once again turned to Joseph.

「What happened?」
「The town was attacked.」
「The other town? There should be a Fountain of Ilia there though? I made one. I thought that monsters wouldn’t attack?」
「It wasn’t a monster」
「What?」
「It was people. People attacked us.」

Joseph said with frustration.

What he said was out of my expectations.
******************************
The first town —Akito—.

I took Yuria with me and returned there with Joseph.

「Akito-san!」

When we entered, Madway saw us and ran over.

「Madway are you alright?」
「Yeah, somehow.」
「How’s everyone else?」
「There are some light injuries.」
「I see.」

I once again looked at the town.

A few buildings were destroyed along with items.

「Is this the only damage?」
「No.」

Madway shook his head.

「They stole all of our food.」
「Food?」
「The food that Akito-san prepared for us. All of it.」
「The Pushinee?」

Madway nodded.

I headed towards the food storehouse.

There should have been a mountain of Pushinee there, but it had all disappeared as Madway said.

「Did they take anything else?」

Madway responded by shaking his head.

「That’s all.」

I raised my eyebrows.

A group of people who only attacked the town to steal food…what’s going on?
***********************
I cast the magic to repair all the buildings, then took Yuria and left.

I was following a magic circle arrow. The arrow was for a thing called Rapusha, which used Pushinee as an ingredient.

I used that as a radar and chased after the people who stole the Pushinee.

「Master」
「What?」
「What will you do when you catch them?」
「…….」

That’s right…what am I going to do?

I froze right there and couldn’t figure out what my goal was.

All that was stolen was enough Pushinee for a town of less than 100 people to live for a month.

Even if you added all of them together it wouldn’t reach a cost of 10,000 magic.

Nothing else was stolen and no one was really injured.

I finally realized that I hadn’t even thought of what I was doing. I just got caught up in the flow.

「You didn’t decide?」
「…..nope.」

I smiled wryly and asked Yuria.

「If it was you, what would you do?」
「Make more pushinee and strengthen the defenses with more Nitoka. Tell them to use them properly next time.」
「I see.」

Yuria’s suggestion was probably correct. The pushinee’s are consumable items. This time the attackers had the element of surprise.

The next time they should be able to block them with the Nitoka, and I probably won’t need to go myself.

I don’t need to but…

「Well, it might be best to pull up the cause by its roots.」

This reasoning in and of itself may be correct as well.

「I understand.」

Yuria calmly agreed.

「Also, I don’t know when a fight may break out. I’ll have you come inside my sword.」
「I understand.」

The nitoka hadn’t been used, but I was making battle preparations early by taking Yuria into my blade.

I touched the gem and she was sucked in.

The moment my blade began to let out its customary white light,

(They’re coming Master)
「Eh?」

The trouble sensing Yuria warned. The next moment the magic arrow pointed forwards.

I instantly looked up and saw the enemies approaching me.

There were about 50 people approaching me completely hidden by mantles from head to toe.

They were coming from the direction indicated by the arrow.

—Preemptive strike—those words popped into my head.

「Why?」
(Their material is glowing. They would be cautious.)
「…….oh」

It’s just as Yuria said.

Though I used it like a radar, the pushinee itself would start to shine.

A monster would ignore it, but if you’re a person and the thing you just stole started shining, you’d be cautious.

And from there a —preemptive attack— would become the obvious conclusion.

「I was careless. It’s a useful technique, but I need to think more carefully before using it.」
(Yes)
「Anyways, Yuria I’ll leave the attack prediction to you.」
(I understand)

I gripped the shining slave sword and prepared to clash with the enemy.

  1. thanks for the chapter

  2. Thanks for the new chapter!

  3. Well, I was ready to poke holes if the “bandits” couldn’t see the glowing food/arrows, but nah. its all gud.

    Thanks for another chapter~

    • Now that I think of it, that must be confusing / lethal to a stealth based monster. Suddenly you can’t sneak and can’t get food / get murdered by whatever your hiding from.

  4. Thanks for the chapter (also it’s not chapter 12 but 32)

    • That’s a link to chapter 12 I haven’t put up the rest of the chapters…only up til 12 then this new one so it isn’t properly linked

  5. thx for the chapter o/

  6. Thank you for the chapter.

  7. Thanks for chapter.
    I somehow know other summoned person is their leader, btw I forgot his name.
    I hope Akito will kill them but left one person and caught them and interrogation(read as tortune) him.

  8. i’d wager they are the people from that wankers village and he is telling them to go steal the stuff

  9. Thanks for the chapter !!!

  10. Thanks 4 the translation!

    My guess they came from the other guy’s village.

  11. \ Thanks!! /

  13. Lazy OP MC Lover

    Thanks for the new chapter wesly. it’d be cool if there were more or complete ones so that these cliffhangers don’t become the bane of my existence.

  14. ty for the chap
    let the carnage beginn

  15. Question about the item creation/search function: How does the arrow work? I understand that a circle is made where the item will appear/be made with gathered materials, that arrow(s) point from it to the needed object and that the needed object(s) will start glowing when circle is made (probably only the nearest would glow as all material the world over glowing is excessive, unless Goddess really loves stuff shining randomly on a global scale). But what I haven’t quite understood is how the magic arrow works. This has been bugging me for a bit and I’ve been trying to figure it out. I initially thought the arrow only stayed on the circle and the person will have to walk in a straight line to avoid going off course but felt this was inefficient as it would be extremely easy to get off course when out of sight of the starting point. Then I thought that arrows were placed at equal intervals from the target, but also thought it a bit inefficient. So my newest conclusion is that the arrow(s) respond to the intent of an individual when near the circle and that the circle will have an arrow float in front of the person/group who are looking for that object. Whatever it may be, would appreciate a response in the future to understand.

    • The arrows probably extend straight to the nearest object of the type, but as the person searching for it walks along, the arrow probably follows that person and points the way from where that person currently is. Like so:-

      O-i———>x

      O————i
      \
      \
      \
      V
      x

      O————
      \
      \
      \
      i—————–>x

      and so on.

      And if you go off course, the back of the arrow probably follows you, and the part ahead of you shows you the correct direction.

      As for who is stealing the pushinee, it’s probably Seiya’s village.

  16. Thanks for the Chapter desk~!!!

  17. Thanks for doing this chapter! ?

  18. Nothing else was stolen and no one was really injured.

    Seems the mc is forgetting that joseph was covered in blood and heavily injured, might’ve died without the panacea. So what’s this bullshit about no one really being injured? Just because you can make the injuries heal doesn’t mean it never happened.
