- Chapter 20 - Hey, Wallace. Can't you use Thought Communication? I want to get in touch with John.
“Squad 2! Recall Team 1!”
I wasn’t just swinging my sword in the dark.
I was pushing her. I was pushing Sylphina.
I was trying to get her as far away from the fallen first team as possible. And now it’s done.
“Wow,… you’re good, Kensei. Major Wallace, is it?”
“I’m flattered by the compliment, will you just surrender?”
“Ha ha, that’s no good. You should try to screw her over. You know it’s only one woman, right?”
A thought communication from Alan comes in.
It’s about whether or not to send three squads as reinforcements.
(‘No need, we can’t win here even if we increase our numbers.)
“No, we can’t just let them go…”
(No, I’m withdrawing. I’m talking about the witches, I don’t know what they’re doing to Team 1)
Immediately after he told them this, Alan’s thoughts were disturbed.
(What? What’s going on?)
“-Yeah, there’s some kind of disturbance… huh? The church hospital has been taken over?”
I don’t even know what Alan is seeing or hearing.
All I know is that something unusual has happened.
“The church hospital, occupied ……?”
It was unconscious. I had unconsciously uttered the words I had heard from Alan.
And that was the biggest mistake of all.
“Hey, Wallace. What’s going on? What happened?”
The witch who heard my words kicked my integrity away and grabbed me by the chest. It wasn’t the same evasive fighting style as before.
I mean, this guy could have disarmed me at any time ……!
“Church Hospital says it’s been taken over….”
“I know that! Tell me more! John is in there!
You guys want to recover the body of a brave man, don’t you?”
– How could this woman know that?
Surely what we are ordered to do is to retrieve the body of the brave man.
It is best to bring them back alive, but we are told to be sure to recover the bodies as well.
“-There’s a magic formula set up around the church, isn’t there?”
From there, I was forced, almost by accident, to work with Sylph the Witch.
I was almost forced into it, but she was certainly right.
If a brave man dies here as a victim of terrorism, it is almost impossible to recover his body.
“Yes,” she said. “It seems that the “anti-imperialists” who have been active in recent days have taken action.”
“The ones who were excited to be in front of the Waku…, right?”
“Not all of them, but most of them are members of the same faction.”
Alan, you have done a lot of research in a short period of time.
“Well, it’s all on behalf of the Imperial Army, which is on the verge of an offensive.
They don’t even seem to think that there are terrorists among these onlookers.”
It’s a harsh assessment, but it’s certainly a sub-par response to be able to watch the church hospital without problems just by being among the onlookers.
“-I’m getting out of here! This way!”
“… stop! Don’t go on. Turn back!”
I noticed that Lady Sylphina, standing next to me, quietly muttered the word, John.
I guess she is calling the brave”John”.
I’m sure he’s not the one who’s on fire, and the voice that tried to stop him is the one who’s the bravest.
“Captain, you’ve been burned….”
“So, the technique is real, and it wasn’t a bluff.”
I can commend the Imperial Army for not attacking.
And they act fast. Did you read ahead of time that the camp is already completed?
Well, for all that, it was a failure to stop the executioner.
“John, I knew you’d fight. You do.
Hey, Wallace. Can’t you use thought communication? I need to get in touch with John.”
“What,…? Oh, I hadn’t thought of that.”
I send out a thought communication to try it out. There is one other person available to receive it besides my man.
But what is it? The noise is very bad, or rather, I seem to be disturbed.
“What is it?”
“I’m afraid someone is blocking our thought communication.”
Lady Sylphina clucking her tongue at our words.
By the way, that stinky commander told me.
He said that the communication between him and the heroes had been cut off.
“You’re doing this? Thought communication has been interrupted.”
“What do we do now?”
“Wait a minute.”
You’re a selfish woman. Doing someone else a favor.
“As it turns out, you may be lucky that the first team wasn’t inside, Captain.”
“…. idiot, if you say such a thing, Lady Sylphina.”
I’m glaring at him quietly, but this elf is probably pissed off inside.
“…. anti-imperialist… you know, they …… kill….”
No, not secretly. She is really pissed off.
I don’t know what to do. It is certain that the worst thing that could happen is for the hero to die here.
But if we are going to help, in what way should we do it?
“-John, that’s not good. That’s not good.
Damn it. Hey, Wallace! We’ve broken the blockade. Send me a thought transmission now!”
Sylphina, who had been staring at the church hospital for a while, speaks up.
This elf probably can see through buildings. As expected of a wizard.
“I’m sure you can see through the building. I understand, Miss. What’s the content?”
“Don’t kill the sorcerer! He’s trying to disable the non-lethal setting!”
I see, so you are facing the person who set that ignition technique in motion.
You are a masterful hero. How did you manage to reach the criminal in a one-sided environment?
(- You’d better not cancel the non-lethal setting, Mr. Braveheart.)
“Why are you ….Major Wallace?!”
(I’ll explain later. You’re dealing with a sorcerer now, aren’t you?)
He explains again and again. In the current situation, where we do not know what will happen to the technique in the event of the surgeon’s death, the elimination of the surgeon is dangerous.
“….Do you even have a background in witchcraft?”
(No, I have an advisor next door. He’s your employer.)
“―With Sylphy? What’s going on… huh?!”
I somehow used the term “employer,” but was I right?
I had a feeling that was the case with this woman, Sylphina.
“Tell them to aim for the feet, Wallace,” she said. “The enemy is strengthening from the arms to the chest.”
From there, I followed Lady Sylphina’s advice and gave the instructions to the heroes.
“Did he win?”
I could tell by the look of relief on her face.
She’s quite a pretty face-expressing elf. She’s a legendary witch.
… I’m not sure how she can see through a building all the time, though. I’m not sure if it’s a witch there after all.
“Uhm, it looks like the enemy in front of you has been defeated.”
(Well done, as expected of the hero…)
“… stop imitating the commander, Wallace.”
I wondered if my communication with the commander had been like this, and I could see the expression on the face of Sylphina next to me turn pale.
“What’s the matter? Sylphina”
“I was in the middle of a conversation. It wasn’t that one, it was a more advanced magician, no, this one.”
I grabbed her arm as she was about to run off to the church hospital.
‘What the hell? Wallace!”
“What the ……?”
I don’t know what it is, but it looks like the enemy had another deeper trick up their sleeve.
Considering this, it was not a good idea to send a wizard of her caliber inside.
The only person who could disarm the ignition system from the outside would be Sylphina.
“Alan, after we go in, you can send me any communications I need.”
“…., I honestly want to stop you. Captain.”
“I’m not listening. You’re wasting your time. It’s my job to help my men.”
Well, it’s doubtful that Hero, who was from a different lineage, is a subordinate, but even so, he’s the man who was fighting under my orders just now. He cannot abandon it if it is in danger.
“Are you sure, Wallace? Can you trust me?”
“Where is there a better witch than you? Sylphina.”
“… You’re as good as they say you are. All right, don’t worry, I’m going to break through that trick.”
Saying this, Sylphina took out a large cloth.
The actual water was produced there, and then the magic was applied.
….. You’re a wizard, aren’t you?
“The first thing you need to do is to put on this cloth. The place is on the third floor. I’ll build you a stairway to it.
-I’m going to become a demon if I don’t do something! Tell them to keep their distance!”
Sylphina, who had returned her gaze to the church hospital, shouted.
We’re going to become demons? A human being is going to become a……? What a dangerous situation ……!
(Dear hero, get your distance now! Get out of the way now! Now!)
I wait for Lady Sylphina to create a staircase with the wind while communicating via thought communication.
But this is outrageous. Is this the power of a legendary witch?
“Take off this cloth when you get through the technique,” she said. “It will burn.
The anti-imperialists inside have turned into demons. They are more than orcs.”
“I guess we have to go with the intention of killing them, don’t we?”
Sylphina nodded in agreement.
“I’m sorry. I’ll see if I can’t destroy this technique from the outside.”
“Oh, please take care of it”
After a brief explanation of the situation, I ran up her stairs.
Then my footsteps stopped at the line that ignited when I crossed here.
You’re not at the …… gala, you’re terrified. I am.
-I think of the screams and the image of the man who died in the fire just a few minutes ago.
In the first place, he was in danger of falling to his death when he was at such a high place, but now it’s too late.
“…… Run away, Mr. President!”
I heard the scream of the brave man. It was not a thought transmission. It was coming from behind the closed window.
“Wait for me, I’m coming!”
With that shout, I jumped in. I went beyond the ignition technique and smashed the windowpane.
