Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin - Chapter 2
- Here’s the Mission. Your Mission Is to Burn the Elf Village and Eliminate the Terrorist Leader, Sylphina Bloommarin
- Chapter 2 - No, it's me. In fact, my name is Sylphina Bloommarin.
“I don’t agree with that order.
Unless we have proof that this girl is the terrorist mastermind, we cannot kill her.”
Are you out of your mind, you brave man? You are now in clear violation of orders.
“I will not disobey humanity. If you call me brave, I will act like a brave man.”
-Oh no, this is no time to argue.
The witch will wake up! Kill her before it is irreversible.
Eliminate Sylphina Bloommarin!
“….What? That outfit, are you from the empire?”
“You can tell?”
“Yes, even a child can tell. You’re not from the land of men, you’re from the machine empire.”
Stop it. Don’t talk to the witch, or she’ll take you in!
“Indeed. I’m here to kill Sylphina, the terrorist mastermind.
I guess it is not you…..?”
“…. No, it’s me. My name is indeed Sylphina Bloommarin.”
You’re sure about that? Do it now!
You must eliminate Sylphina Bloommarin. That’s what you’re supposed to do!
Good, you’ve got the integrity set up, right?
Disengage that non-lethal setting, quickly! Before she casts a spell!
“… state-of-the-art equipment, huh? That’s very impressive.
But why didn’t you kill me before I woke up?”
“I can’t just kill a girl. It’s not very humane.”
You know it’s not just a girl and child, right?! Hero!
“-Don’t mess around, shut up for a second!!”
“Hmmm… thought-communication. Which, if I may say so, is ringing in your ears…”
Ahh-hear me, oh brave one,…
That was the last voice. The voice of the commander, which had been going on since the beginning of the operation, broke off.
At the same time, I felt as if my head had been cleared a little.
It was as if the haze that had been hanging over my head had cleared away.
“What in the world did you do….?”
“You know that I am called a witch, don’t you? I intercepted your thought communication.”
… So that’s why I can’t hear the voice of the commander anymore.
How could a girl who is no different from an ordinary elf, except for her distinctive light blue hair and eyes, be capable of so much? It means that you’ve suppressed the movement of the nanomachines in your body……
“…… Well, what about you, the so called brave one?
If you want to kill me, that’s fine too.
If you kill me successfully and resume thought communication, you should be able to return to your unit.”
Sylphina Bloommarin smiles fearlessly while her hands are still tied.
The commander said she was an elf over 500 years old. It may be true.
The enemy is a crafty witch. Even if she’s bound, there is a way to reverse the situation…
“… huh, are you going to release my bonds?”
“Perhaps that is not necessary.”
Obviously I acted irrationally.
I released her from her restraints after she admitted to being the witch Sylph.
It was an easy cut with the integrity of a non-lethal setting.
“No, that puts me too high. In the end, I’m nothing more than a weak woman’ caught in this situation.”
I don’t think that’s the way a “weak woman” would behave or speak.
“I was told you were the head of this terrorist group.”
“What? Terrorist group? The head of it……?
Are you told that I’m their leader?”
I nodded to witch Sylph’s question.
She looks like she is about 10 years old, so it is hard to believe that she is the leader of a terrorist group.
“At least, that’s what I’ve been told.
But it seems to be different. Can you tell me what’s going on?”
“-Hmm, you seem to have been given false information, but your insight is real.”
The witch Sylph adjusts her clothes, which had been disordered by being tied up.
Her white fingertips seem to shine quietly in the darkness.
“First of all,” she said, “let’s talk about the three you defeated and the people who are fighting out front.
They are not my men, and they are not a terrorist group. No, they may be a terrorist group in the broad sense of the word, but at least they are not ideological.”
If we believe her testimony, the assumption that the witch Sylph is the head of a terrorist group is destroyed.
Does that mean that….. I was forced to do a mission based on false information?
“You said these guys were selling out their own people.”
“That’s right. Yes, and the damned thing is, they sell elf women and children to other countries.”
-I see, it is indeed a criminal group, but not an ideological one.
It would not be appropriate to call them a terrorist group.
What was the commander talking about when he said they were against nanomachines in the body?
“I heard that your machine empire in particular is buying them at a high price.
They are experimenting with non-human nanomachines in the body, aren’t they?”
“….That’s ridiculous. I’ve never heard of such a thing.”
– There are some things that a single soldier cannot teach.
I thought of that possibility before the witch Sylph told me so.
I just wasn’t being taught. It makes more sense to think that way.
“So you were being held to be sold.”
“I don’t know where they were planning to sell me, but I knew I was safe until they sold me, so I was allowed to rest a little.”
She is a very determined girl.
She was resting because she knew she was safe until she was sold. Against a human trafficking ring.
“….that’s a very dangerous thing to do.”
“I just lost an assassination squad from the empire.
I was so tired, I can’t do anything if my physical strength ran out.”
An assassination squad from the empire ……?
You mean against you personally, not as the head of a terrorist group?
“How in the world did you get an assassination squad…..?”
“-Wait a minute, you don’t know anything about this? I’d like to say so, but I really don’t know. I was tricked into believing that I was the ringleader of this group.”
The witch Sylph smiles kindly.
She seems to think of me as a child who doesn’t know anything.
She says, “Well, I won’t go into details, but I’m an obstacle to the mechanical emperor.
That’s why he tried to kill me.
He didn’t like that I had moved to mediate the 14 Years War.”
…14 years, war?
“Wait, what, you don’t know about the 14 Years War….?”
“Oh, I don’t …… know anything about it…..”
Sylph quickly approached me and put her hand on my forehead.
Those soft fingertips felt cold to me.
“… Your body temperature is a little high, but it doesn’t seem like you have a fever.
Are you feeling sick? Were you given any drugs or something?”
“I’m sure not……”
When she asked me that, I felt a chill run down my spine.
– I don’t remember. I have no memory of the time before I stood on that guard line.
“….you, what’s your name?”
“Your real name, I guess hero and brave one is a kind of codename or something?”
I can feel cold sweat running down my entire body.
…How did I not notice it until just now?
Why did I think of the commander as if he were an old friend? Someone I’ve never seen before.
“….I don’t know.”
“I have no memory before this mission, I have no memory.”
