Run, Silver Fang (Behind the Scenes)
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
Let’s go back to an earlier part of the story.
I let out a deep sigh… after Reus broke the Oath of the Silver Moon and ran away together with Marina.
Later in the future, I might be beaten by Reus, who would know this matter from Fia, and there was also the possibility that he would leave us because he got invited by Albert to remain here.
Nevertheless, I was lying in order to forge Reus’ independency.
“But… I never wanted to lie to that guy.” (Sirius)
“Lie… Does that mean Fia-san’s story about her hometown is…?” (Reese)
“Aah, to tell you the truth…” (Sirius)
And then, I told the truth to Emilia and Reese.
The matter about Fia’s hometown being attacked was a lie. I deliberately forced Reus to choose a tough decision by making him go against my judgment.
Although this was my own selfish way of doing things, Reus was probably happy to move according to my decision without worrying too much.
But, Reus said he wanted to catch up to me and be able to protect my back.
In short, he wanted to be my partner, but if it was going to be like that, the story would turn around.
I acknowledged Reus’ ability, but he was still inexperienced.
More importantly, I didn’t want to entrust my back to someone who waited for my orders or just obeyed my words.
Which was why the lie this time was to evaluate him, but if he found out our situation, he wouldn’t choose to abandon his friend, even if he broke the Oath.
If he grew up like that, someday…
After finished talking to Fia, who was my accomplice, Emilia and Reese came close to me with a smile.
“I understand the reason, but you not only lied to Reus. You also lied to us—… *Pang!*]”(Reese)
“That’s right! Please properly explain it to us!” (Emilia)
“Sorry—… Guhh!?? Ouchhh!?” (Sirius)
“Fia-san? It’s pointless to run away, you know? Muhh—!” (Emilia)
“You are also guilty, Fia-san!” (Reese)
“A-ahaha… Don’t be too hard on me.” (Fia)
As a punishment for deceiving everyone, I got a slap on the cheek from Reese and Emilia bit my neck. Compared to Reus’ suffering, their punishments weren’t that much, so I resigned myself and accepted them.
In the meantime, Fia, who had conspired with me, was banned from drinking for two days, starting from today.
“Haa… well, is it a matter of course to cheat Reus? It’s not bad to be prohibited from drinking once in a while.” (Fia)
“You don’t have to be sorry, Sirius. I was also convinced after listening to your explanation, so it was also my own fault.” (Fia)
Goodness, I couldn’t say anything if they said that to me to that point. I had to make up for it this time.
“In that case, if Fia-san’s story was a lie, will it be alright if we fight the monsters on this side?” (Emilia)
“Yes, that’s what we are going to do… Hokuto!” (Sirius)
“Go after Reus and Marina, and bring them to Albert. And secretly keep watching over Reus after you send him.” (Sirius)
I considered this as an ordeal for Reus, I ordered him not to defeat the monsters as much as possible, unless it’s necessary.
The barking Hokuto reliably ran off from us like the wind.
With this, Reus’ side would probably be alright, but…
“Shall we clear this side and head there to see the situation?” (Sirius)
“No matter what you’ve said, you’re still worried about Reus, right?” (Emilia)
“Is it bad?” (Sirius)
“No. That definitely who you are, Sirius-san.” (Reese)
While Reese was delightfully smiling, it couldn’t be helped because it was worrisome.
And then, Emilia was…
She kept her cheek upright while biting my neck.
“Say… is this child having the urge to do it now?” (Fia)
“Which reminds me, Emilia said that biting the neck and shoulders is the proof of couple in the Silver Wolf Tribe.” (Reese)
“Come now, stop it, Emilia.” (Sirius)
“Auu… M-more…” (Emilia)
Since Emilia didn’t seem to want to be separated from me, I forcibly pulled her off; but, apparently, her arousal still hadn’t settled down.
Anyhow, I rearranged my thoughts while stroking Emilia’s head to calm her down.
“From now on, we will merge with Parade’s subjugation group, but…” (Sirius)
According to the information we heard in advance, it seemed that the fighting power of the monsters was way higher than the Parade’s suppression groups. They could win by using spells and traps, but it was considerably intense when thinking about the damage.
However, if we, who were going to leave the town someday, completely annihilated the monsters, it would lessen the sense of crisis of the whole town. So, it would become various troublesome situations if they knew what we did.
Because of that…
“I think we should thin out the monsters before they clash against the suppression groups. I will shoot the monsters from that hill, while three of you merge—…” (Sirius)
“Aah, wait a second. Can you leave me the task of thinning out the monsters?” (Fia)
“I don’t mind, but you can’t completely annihilate the monsters, you know?” (Sirius)
“Yes, I have a spell that can cause moderate damage.” (Fia)
I decided to leave it to Fia, since she answered with confidence with one eye closed.
Anyway, Emilia and Reese would join the subjugation groups, while Fia and I would move to a high hill to overlook the battlefield.
The battlefield was a rather large plain, where there was no big obstacles.
In one corner, Parade’s subjugation groups were arranging a formation and preparing to engage the monsters. When I shifted my eyes to the opposite side, I was able to confirm the figure of the monsters trying to approach the town of Parade and the scene of them widely extended.
The battle would probably start when the monsters had passed the center of the plan and spells unleashed by the subjugation groups.
“There seems to be slightly more monsters than the information we heard. Are you going, Fia?” (Sirius)
“Leave it to me. I will show you the power of Wind Spirits.” (Fia)
Fia started to concentrate and put both hands forward. She started to sing(2) while increasing her mana.
According to her explanation earlier, this was not a chant, but something that was unique to her…
[It seems that the Wind Spirits love my songs. Because of that, they seem to be more enthusiastic when I sing.] (Fia)
In other words, she was singing to unleash a large-scale Spirit magic.
While the beautiful song echoed, I checked the flow of mana with [Search], and I found that the overflowing mana from Fia was moving towards the center of the plains.
I couldn’t see Spirits, but I memorized the out-of-place feeling with mana swirling in the middle of the plain, so I guessed the Wind Spirits were swirling over there.
Fia’s song ended after a while, but… there were no changes in the plain.
“…Did the spell not invoke?” (Sirius)
“It is like when you use [Impact], it can be remotely controlled… I think? This is the same as that, I will invoke it if I ask the Spirits. And when the monsters come later…” (Fia)
Since Fia’s mana was swirling like a circle in the middle of the plains, one would not know unless they had superior sensing abilities.
Fia raised one hand when the monsters stepped into the center, and…
“Now, everyone, it’s time for go all-out… defeat them!” (Fia)
A huge tornado rolled around the center of the plains at the same time when her hand was swung down.
Although the movement of the tornado couldn’t be seen from that place, its range was wide and nearly 30% of the monsters were swallowed without being able to do anything.
I thought of using [Anti-Materiel] if Fia couldn’t make it, but I guessed that I didn’t have to do it.
“It is only for the monsters, so there is no need to worry. And they can’t run away from it.” (Fia)
The tornado tore the limbs of the monsters and it had enough power to shave the ground and dig a hole.
However, when I checked with a hand-made telescope, the tornado seemed to be ineffective against monsters with tenacious body like the Ogres.
Even after the tornado disappeared, they were still on a rampage…
“Shall I bring them down…?” (Sirius)
Anyhow, I didn’t need any reason for this.
Therefore, I prioritized the large monsters swallowed by the tornado by using [Snipe] with an image of a Sniper Rifle.
By reading the flow of the wind, I continued unleashing the spell and reduced the number of demons while correcting the error of the impact point. A wide variety of spells were unleashed from the position of the subjugation groups and it fell to the incoming monsters, which were outside of the tornado range.
Since the subjugation groups were surprised at the sudden appearance of the tornado, nobody came close to it. I was relieved.
“The tornado is also going to disappear soon. It’s going to be fine after this.” (Fia)
A huge number of monsters were blown away by Fia’s tornado and I killed nearly half of the large monster with my sniping.
If the differences in war potential unfolded, the battle would surely lean towards the subjugation teams.
But… what was this odd feeling that I felt for a while now?
“Well then, shall we go to where Emilia and Reese are? We are not doing it in secret this time, but we have to act where everyone can see.” (Fia)
“Sirius? Hey, what’s wrong?” (Fia)
“Fia, return to the place from earlier. I’m concerned about something.” (Sirius)
“…I can go back if you want, but is there anything I can do for you?” (Fia)
Fia answered without asking my reason, while having serious expression.
Yeah. Fia probably could follow me, since she could fly alone, so should I ask for her assistance?
“If that’s the case, do you want to follow me? I want to go around behind that group.” (Sirius)
“Sure. Shall I bring us together there?” (Fia)
“Please. I want to focus a bit and investigate.” (Sirius)
“Hehe, leave it to me! Although you can be unscrupulous at this time, I’m happy to be at your service.” (Fia)
I was bitterly smiling, but the feeling of tense was somehow untied because of Fia, who seemed to be happy.
After that, we flew into the sky by Fia’s spell and flew to the rear of the monsters.
We took a great detour, while taking some distance, so as not to be noticed by the people of subjugation groups and the monsters. And then, I used [Search] again when we were at the rear side of the monsters.
Since I left the flying to Fia, I was able to concentrate and use [Search].
“…As I expected, there is a somewhat strange reaction.” (Sirius)
“Is that what you were worried about?” (Fia)
“Yeah. Although it is hard to notice, due to the densely packed monsters, there is an obviously different reaction blended in with the group of monsters.” (Sirius)
There was one living life-form, which was a monster, regardless, and it had a unique mana.
However, while such a mana was in the densely packed monsters, I clearly felt a sense of impurities.
When I carefully listened after landing on the ground, the sound of battle, where the first group of monsters collided with the subjugation groups, started to reverberate.
It seemed that there was not much time until the group made contact with this unique reaction.
“It is close, if it is from here. I will run and attack it, while FIa…” (Sirius)
“Is it alright if I prevent the monsters from approaching you?” (Fia)
“Aah…, I leave that to you, then.” (Sirius)
Together with the dependable Fia, I kicked the ground and assaulted the hordes of monsters.
A surprise attack from the back of the enemies was effective against people, but it had no meaning against monsters that lived on instinct.
For that reason, the monsters were attacking on instinct at the same time of my assault, but Fia blew away all the approaching monsters with Wind magic.
“I have no time to play with you, go away!” (Fia)
“As expected of you!” (Sirius)
“Hehe, of course!” (Fia)
Fia, who ran side-by-side, was in charge of my side and rear, while she flew in the sky. On the other hand, I was running, while blowing away the monsters from the front with [Impact].
The objective was found after unleashing spells for several times, but it was a really strange monster.
“What… is this?” (Sirius)
There were countless Ogre arms, and the bottom half was a horse-shaped monster. It was a monster with… a serpent-shaped tail.
The parts of the monsters which could be caught in the surroundings were joined together like a sewn cloth. The monster seemed like a tale from my previous life.
“The balance of its body is bad. What a disgusting monster…” (Fia)
“It’s not just the appearance that is disgusting.” (Sirius)
Even without touching and [Scan]ning it, I could understand its mana reaction through [Search].
All the parts were made by other monsters, but there was no blood passing through it.
A large magic formation was drawn on the chest and mana was overflowing from it giving instructions to each part and moved it. To put it briefly, it was a completely dead monster. It was a doll that only listened to instructions and that would be somewhat close to a golem.
By the way, a Golem was made by a magic formation with rocks and sand as mediums, but this monster was a living golem with flesh as its medium.
In other words, it should not be a naturally occurring monster, but a synthetic monster made by someone’s hand.
It looked like a victim of vicious human experiments and that revived the memories from my previous life.
“Apparently, the cause of the hordes seems to be this monster. We need to defeat it quickly… uhm, what’s wrong?” (Fia)
“No, it’s nothing. Anyhow, it’s better to deal it that way.” (Sirius)
“Well… that’s unfortunate. Wind, please!” (Fia)
As Fia explained, the cause of the fuss was surely this synthetic monster, because the surrounding monsters were frenzied when it loudly howled.
Fia, who could deal with the surrounding monsters while looking away, had to concentrate and unleash spells now and she dedicated herself to blow away all other monsters.
“I can’t keep them away for too long!” (Fia)
“Yes, I will immediately finish this!” (Sirius)
I’d like to research it in various ways, but there was no way I could say that.
As I entrusted the surrounding monsters to Fia, I made a charge towards the synthetic monster.
Although the arms attached to the synthetic monster belonged to Ogres, it was just a meat block. It didn’t feel tired or pain at all.
In order to defeat the incoming monster, it would probably be difficult to wound the countless swaying arms, but I could do anything to those mechanical movements without intelligence loaded in them.
“It’s too straightforward.” (Sirius)
When I did a feint by slowing down a step, before reaching its bosom, it easily caught up.
All of the arms swung before I got to jump into its bosom. During the gap, I jumped in and put both hands in front of the magic formation, which was the core of the synthetic monster…
“This is over…” (Sirius)
Both the magic formation and the synthetic monster were blown away at the same time when I unleashed [Shotgun].
Since I couldn’t feel the mana from the synthetic monster, which had its magic formation shot through, I quickly escaped with Fia, and…
At that moment… I felt a mana that was clearly different from that monster. So, I aimed at the high ground and intuitively shot [Magnum].
The other side was… a human.
As there was a great distance, my aim was slightly off and I seemed to hit the enemy’s arm.
I tried to unleash another shot, but the other person muttered something and disappeared.
I tried to trace the reaction with [Search], but… the movement was abnormally fast. In addition, the enemy ran away into the forest, so it was impossible to shoot.
I could at least shoot if I flew in the sky, but… considering the situation here, it was better to give up than trying to follow that guy.
“Hey, Sirius! This may be a bit rough!” (Fia)
In the meantime, Fia was about to be overwhelmed by monsters.
She was good at knocking down a huge number of enemies, but judging the damage to the surroundings and the weak spells, the mana consumption was intense.
As Fia’s mana had almost depleted, I picked up the breathless FIa and held her. I ran towards the position of the subjugation groups, while avoiding the monsters.
“Haa… that was a bit too much.” (Fia)
“Sorry for having you doing this. But, it helped me.” (Sirius)
“That’s good. So, where are we going?” (Fia)
“I will entrust you to Emilia and go to see Reus. Maybe over there has a monster like earlier.” (Sirius)
I didn’t think Reus would be defeated, but it was also as a precaution.
Besides, I was concerned about the existence of this mystery.
The figure that I saw for a brief moment was a human… and it was a woman based, on the physical characteristics. If that was the case, the mysterious woman who brainwashed the Romanio noble was probably that person.
It was my assumption, but from the point that the reaction of the mana, which originated from the woman, and the magic formation were similar, she was probably the perpetrator who made that synthetic monster.
From the fact that she expressively appeared on the battlefield, where the monster was, there was no mistake that she wanted to watch her creation. It was a common behavior of mad scientists.
It was annoying because she managed to escape, but… I remembered her mana.
“Until we meet again… Escapee-san.” (Sirius)
“Welcome back, Sirius-sama. Fia-san.” (Emilia)
Thereupon, I blended in to where the subjugation groups were taking a break. I was able to join Emilia, who was preparing to replace the vanguard personnel.
Since Reese was treating injured people in the vicinity, she was surprised to see Fia and me.
“Fia-san!? Are you hurt?” (Reese)
“Ehe, I’m fine. I just overused mana a bit.” (Fia)
“That’s good. Sirius-san also… are you alright?” (Reese)
“Yes. I’m sorry, but I will leave at once to see Reus’ situation. You can ask Fia about the situation.” (Sirius)
I tried to leave after entrusting Fia to Reese, but Emilia stood up in front of me and came out with a cup.
“Yeah, what is it?” (Sirius)
“Sirius-sama. Please rehydrate at least.” (Emilia)
“…I guess so. Thanks, Emilia.” (Sirius)
That reminded me, I was sweating a lot because I ran around until just now. Although there was still plenty of room, negligence was forbid.
I stroked Emilia’s head, while receiving it. I slowly drank it and returned the cup.
“Well then, I’m going.” (Sirius)
“Please take care.” (Emilia)
“Please take care of Reus and the others.” (Reese)
“Take care.” (Fia)
As Emilia gave a beautiful bow, while waving her tail, I started running again while looking at the smiling Fia and Reese, who were sitting down.
After getting away from the subjugation groups, I jumped to the sky by kicking the air at a place where nobody could see me. I, then, crossed the Deine Lake.
I came to the battlefield with Hokuto’s mana as a landmark. He was sitting down on a hill and he was looking at something below him.
“Phew… I made you wait, Hokuto. Reus’ condition is…” (Sirius)
“Owaa!? What’s wrong, Hokuto? Why you suddenly jump?” (Sirius)
Although it was strange for Hokuto to suddenly act spoiled, but as far as I saw the situation, there seemed to be no problem for Reus.
When I looked down from the hill and discovered their figures, Albert was setting up an impromptu small group, and they were running around the battlefield with Reus as the lead.
“…It seems they are splendidly fighting.” (Sirius)
Although I was a bit worried about Reus’ pacing and roughness, it seemed that there was no problem, since Albert and Marina were properly assisting him.
I occasionally discovered some adventurers who were about to be killed by the monsters, so I covered them with [Snipe], while watching Reus, but… apparently, it was on this side as well.
“…It is there, huh? But, that person is…” (Sirius)
In the center of Romanio’s subjugation group, there was the exact same rampaging existence as the synthetic monster that I knocked down.
As I expected, I couldn’t feel the reaction of that woman. Well, it could be said that was a matter of course, since she got shot.
While I searched for that woman’s signature, the battle started when Reus collided against the synthetic monster.
Since there was no one with powerful long-ranged attacks in that group, the battle inevitably became a close-combat battle.
Because of that, that meatblock sent in blows at the attacking Reus from the front, Reus, who I trained together with Albert, made full use of Albert’s abilities and handled the monster well.
Although it was brief, I was honestly surprised that they could handle all six arms that were swung almost at the same time.
“…I probably can’t do that. If Jii-san saw him, he would be pleased.” (Sirius)
Reus was driven into a corner for a bit, but with the cooperation of Albert and Wayne, he succeeded in defeating the synthetic monster.
I had nothing to say, because he didn’t became careless as he incinerated the monster. By the way, I also told Fia to burn the synthetic monster if she found it.
I was prepared to [Snipe] at any time, but after confirming Reus, who collapsed because he reached his limit, I slowly unfolded my battle readiness.
The remaining monsters were good enough for the subjugation group, and Reus managed to rescue Albert.
“Has he finally reached that point…?” (Sirius)
Although his mental experience was not enough yet, but Reus got a big gain in this situation.
If he grew up like this, someday… not just Lior, he would also surpass me.
So, when I explain the truth and if he still wanted to follow me afterwards… let’s respond with all my power.
“Welcome to the world of experts… Reus.” (Sirius)
[It seems that the Wind Spirits love my songs. Because of that, they seem to be more enthusiastic when I sing.] (Fia)
In other words, she was singing to unleash a large-scale Spirit magic.
Although it was such a beautiful song, what remained after the song ended… was a scene of destruction being spread.
“…A song of destruction, huh?” (Sirius)
“Did you say something rude?” (Fia) ← with scornful eyes
“No, not really.” (Sirius) ← expressionless
The party of play-biting…starts!
“Anyhow, I have made a party of play-biting that will leave no scratches to Sirius-sama.” (Emilia)
“Just a minute… I am not related, right? I do not come from a race who does it on a regular basis, so…” (Reese)
“As practice, I have made a small stuffed toy made from cloth. Well then, Reese will be the first to…” (Emilia)
“Haven’t I told you!? I’m not doing it! Rather than biting, the feeling of tasting the lips—… no, no, that’s wrong!” (Reese)
“It can’t be helped then. Next, I have prepared a life-sized doll made with special-ordered materials. Hokuto-san, please be the role model.” (Emilia)
“By the way, in order to increase the sense of realism, I put on Sirius-sama’s clothes, and his smell is soaked into it because he had it as a holding pillow. The more you apply the pressure, the stronger the smell of Sirius-sama—…” (Emilia)
*snap*! *roll* *roll*…<sup(3) ← ※The neck was torn and the head was rolling.
“Emilia, where are my clothes…? What is this!?” (Sirius)
The party of play-biting… Dismissed.
