Why Ignorant Harems Are Dangerous chapter 54
54 – #12. Up of charm (4)
The worst was averted.
I don’t know if it’s the other person’s remorse or if there’s some other reason. It’s just that the demon woman suddenly disappeared from us.
It wasn’t us or me that took the lead.
Besides, it is also true that the situation is still bleak. I couldn’t fully believe that, but if the existence of a demon who defeated the city’s hero and elite punitive force was directly approaching this city, the situation would still be bad.
“Mister, are you here?”
“Even the little girl was fine.”
“Brother Jack… …. I’m really glad you’re okay.”
Leaving behind Lenny and Jack, who were greeting each other, I approached Eina, who was just standing at a distance with a dazed expression.
“Are you okay?”
“…… This is not the time to worry about me.”
She seemed to have half lost her mind after hearing that the sword lord had been defeated.
“There is no way that older brother will be defeated. That’s clearly a lie. You can think of it that way, but the situation is not to say that it’s a lie….”
I had already heard about it from Mea and was familiar with it.
She couldn’t afford to think that it would come to this city directly, but she didn’t know what kind of skill the sword master was, but she didn’t know what to do if the punitive force was defeated.
“With a sword, no one can beat that older brother. More dignified than anyone, stronger than anyone. The name of a hero is like that.”
“Let’s calm down for now. Take a look at your body first, and first of all what you can do now…….”
“The city is also a mess. It’s really absurd.”
She smiled self-deprecatingly and shrugged her shoulders.
“It’s just to see how I look. I was entrusted with protecting this city by my older brother, and in reality I only played in the hands of the Witchbeast. He couldn’t even use a hand against his demons, and if that six-armed giant hadn’t been for you…….”
“You were the one who ended it.”
“…… It would have been impossible without you.”
Blaming yourself doesn’t make things better.
However, with the news of her kin and the situation going from bad to worst, it was difficult for her to speak strongly to the woman in trouble.
“Hey, bro. What are you doing there Besides, who is that woman?”
“Ah, this one. That… ….”
How should I explain it?
After thinking for a while, she took a weak step toward Jack.
“It’s Eina, the sword master’s sister.”
“Really? Anyway, the way you talk is really weird. Rather than that, come over here.”
Certainly with a gloomy expression, even the part of her as the sword master’s sister.
Anyone could see that he was a party to this situation and that he was depressed at the same time, but Jack responded once and grabbed my arm and took me to where Lenny was.
“The kid has something to tell you.”
She arrived at Lenny, led by her hand, and the girl, sitting in her wheelchair, pretended to reach out for her hand, and when he held it, she barely pulled the corner of her mouth into a smile.
“He said he had something to say.”
Lenny paused for a moment, giving off a conflicted air of her own, then she nodded her head and opened her mouth, slightly tightening her grip on her hand.
“I thought about it until now. A sound heard from the surroundings, a monster that suddenly appeared. All I can do is always think.”
“Don’t say that.”
“It’s okay. I know that I am a burden in this situation.”
The girl shook her head slightly and continued her story.
“When you think about it, it was a little strange. There must be many people who protect this city, but it’s not logical to think that there are so many monsters suddenly appearing in the city.”
Unless those monsters fly through the sky and attack from the sky, that’s strange.
In addition, I heard that there are some monsters that fly in the sky, but accordingly, anti-aircraft weapons are always prepared in the city to deal with monsters attacking from the air to some extent.
At the time, when the demons appeared, it wasn’t even late at night, and it wouldn’t be strange if they appeared simultaneously in the entire city.
No matter how you think about it, it doesn’t make sense.
“It seemed that they appeared underground, but then the question was where did they come from? But the other day, my uncle told me. The soil quality of this land seems a bit unusual.”
“If there were no rivers running in the city, it would have been necessary to store and replenish water somewhere. It’s probably underground in this city…….”
Groundwater flowing underground.
Or, if there is a facility that can draw water from a nearby river and store it inside the city, could it be that the Demonic Beast invaded through it and appeared on the surface?
It certainly makes sense.
Even if you go back to that invasion route, it’s not that strange to build a facility underground in a city like this. In fact, the place where Jack worked in the Holy Kingdom was also an underground facility based on such a sewage facility, although the purpose was different.
This part should be explained by a person who is familiar with the city of Sachery.
She waved her eyes at Eina, who was a short distance away, and she moved closer and nodded at Lenny’s words.
“Certainly there is an underground bedrock that flows under this city on a fairly large scale. There is a large-scale river flowing in the distance, but it seems that the existence of the demonic beast was too big to settle down there.”
Where water flows, life always accompanies it.
It wasn’t that demonic beasts could survive without water. Of course, there would be such individuals, but most of them had the characteristics of a living being, befitting the name of a monster.
I understood that.
But the fact that there is bedrock under this city?
“It would be nice to say pupil. I heard that in the past, in the process of establishing this city, a large number of wizards were mobilized to greatly increase the existing underground water facilities and bring some of the river water underground.”
With a pupil that big, the number of monsters that appear in this city is understandable.
No matter how much they hide underground, if the scale is small, it would be impossible to raid the entire city on such a large scale.
It was an impossible hypothesis because it was not confirmed precisely, but it was correct to think that it appeared from under the ground unless it invaded the sky.
“Has this ever happened to you?”
“…… I know this is the first time this corpse has been established. Since it has been the domain of my family for generations, there is no way I wouldn’t know if there was a history like this…….”
It is impossible with only the Demonic Beast, which is said to have poor intellect.
A six-armed giant who actually led the monsters and led the attack in the city. It would not have been impossible if the skills of the demons were added, including the demon woman who appeared in front of us.
Could it have been because the city had never been exposed to such an attack in the past?
I heard that the city was built near the forefront of the Demon King, so it was a well-prepared city in many ways, but I finally realized at this moment that it was vulnerable to internal invasion through the waterway.
By the time I realized it, it was already the worst.
Come to think of it, it is said that they have maintained a relatively peaceful situation without a major war with the demons for more than hundreds of years.
I don’t know if it was the beginning of the war that the demons attacked the continent’s territory on such a large scale, but we, who had to deal with it, were in a situation where we couldn’t laugh.
“It’s a hypothesis, but I think it’s persuasive.”
Since I had to go around or fight all this time, I didn’t have time to think deeply about this issue.
Of course, I might have realized it after a while, but just paying attention to this fact in the midst of an urgent situation was a great harvest.
“…… Well, of course it’s all my imagination….”
“You don’t have to be so downhearted. We didn’t even have time to think about it. Rather thank you I am sorry for putting you through this situation.”
I thought for a while as I brushed the girl’s gray hair.
The demon left once.
But it can’t end like this. If they continue to advance into this city after defeating the city’s elite punitive force, will they be able to cope with the internal turmoil in Sacheri?
“Eina. If you stay so gloomy, I won’t care and run away, but don’t you still have work to do?”
“I’m not in a position to give orders like this, but I heard that demon is approaching right away. Then, wouldn’t it be necessary to deal with the internal chaos after killing one of the demons?”
If you face the worst in a situation like this, you don’t even have the strength to turn it over.
Of course, there wouldn’t be as much combat power left as the punitive force, which even had sword masters mobilized, but if the walls of this city were still intact, the siege weapons installed over them would be intact.
I don’t know how far the beasts would have spread while leading the internal massacre, but it’s better than not trying anything at all and being defeated.
“I’m helpless, but I’ll help. So, do you have any plans to complete the work that the Sword Master, your brother, couldn’t do?”
“…… What my older brother failed to do, I did. That would be impossible.”
That gloomy expression doesn’t straighten out right away.
Come to think of it, when she introduced herself, she remembered that she had mentioned that she was the sword master’s sister.
Perhaps, to her, the hero named Sword Master was a shadow she cast over herself, and at the same time, was the most powerful and absolute thing she could trust and rely on.
“I won’t stop you if you’re just going to die, but if you’re going to drag the whole city into committing suicide, that’s okay.”
“…… I am.”
“I will help you with this inconvenience. I don’t know how far I can go, but sinking like this city is a refusal.”
She once swore that she would be a hero.
Then at least we should see the end.
“Huh, tongue, brother?”
“…… No, just.”
Jack tapped my shoulder as if he had something to say, but as soon as our eyes met, he shook his head saying it was nothing.
“I did it because I thought I had a bit of a manly spirit. I can’t see the face.”
“My face is a bit special.”
“Patience. The last time I looked at it, it looked like a moderately shiny parasitic brother.”
That hurts a bit.
Aside from that, there was a feeling that my depressed mood was a little better at this light joke.
In the city, I saw a lot of casualties, and in addition, it’s important to be able to feel at least in a situation where the fate of the city’s best hero is unknown.
“Let’s try it. It would be impossible without you, the deputy lord of this city.”
“…… If the official residence is in order, you can spread your voice within the city. I don’t know how long the output magic tools installed in the city will survive.”
“Then let’s broadcast.”
If you can convey your voice, focus all personnel on this official residence.
If the Demonic Beast still remains in the city, it is enough to mobilize those who can move around the troops gathered in the city residence to rescue it.
“I think the first thing is to stabilize the internal chaos.”
“Jack, can you help?”
At that question, he sighed and scratched his head.
“It’s too tough to work with people at this job.”
“I think it is only possible because you can use the s*x method.”
“Yes, even if it was an apprenticeship.”
He’s talking as if he doesn’t like it, but his expression is serious.
“But what, don’t you fall for things like this? You are not manly.”
“Besides, if it’s the difference, Count Louisianes will pay for it himself.”
I want you to do something about that part.
Still, it wasn’t bad in itself to set the direction.
It bothered me that Eina’s expression was still gloomy, but it was impossible to deal with her internally without immediately putting her name on the front and gathering people.
It hurts to say that it is more efficient to immediately gather and mobilize people at the command of the proxy lord than to hear strangers talking all day.
The situation is so complicated and confusing that my head feels like it will explode.
However, apart from that, there was something refreshing in my heart.
Should I call it hope?
I also felt that it didn’t fit the situation.
Then, what should I call this?
For me, I haven’t been able to give this feeling a name yet.
