Episode 9: The Healologist Believes
Bullet decided to do nothing to me.
It would take him a long time to break my heart if he tried.
So, I guess he’ll have to wait until he breaks something important to me.
If he destroys the Jioral Kingdom and all of my women, I’ll never be sane.
It’s a good move.
But there is one mistake.
Bullet is a lapdog to my women. He thinks they’re my pets, that I’m supposed to protect them.
But they’re not.
They have their own power. That’s why I trusted them.
None of them are incompetent.
They can act on their own initiative.
They can get through a crisis without me.
Bullet is about to find out how badly he underestimated them.
“Keyaru, did you enjoy your meal today?”
“Yes, it was not bad.”
That’s why I’m not moving.
Bullet wants me to move in a hurry.
So, I’m not going to do that. Trust and wait. I’m not going to move now.
In the Kingdom of Jioral, Ellen was busily issuing orders.
This is because the Grunzbach Empire, which was supposed to be under a ceasefire, suddenly began to march.
“Freya-san, please go out alone. Stop them first. I’m going to ask you to use large-scale freezing magic from the sky at the points I indicate. That will buy us a few days of time. Kureha-san, please accompany me just in case. There’s a possibility that the other party has countermeasures against flying.”
Freya and Kureha had already prepared for battle and were ready to leave immediately.
They were able to respond so quickly because they were prepared for this very moment.
The girls had grown up.
“Then, I’ll be going. I amassed too much power, so I’ll hit them with an extra-large one. It’s because of those people that I was separated from Keyaru. I have to make them pay for that.”
Freya squeezed her hand to show her motivation.
‘Ellen, I’m concerned about their anti-aircraft measures, and I know it’s better if I accompany you. But is that what you want? Ellen, your bodyguards will be gone. I’m not sure if I can protect you. If it’s a battle, we can handle it on our own, but this is a war. As soon as Ellen is defeated, we’ll lose.”
This is the weakness of the Jioral Kingdom.
In the past, the Jioral King had run amok, and the only person who could lead and steer the country, let alone run it, was Ellen.
In addition, because of the black monster’s ability to disguise itself as a human, there is a possibility that it has already entered the Jioral castle without even knowing it, and the risk of assassination is much higher than in a war against humans.
In addition, Ellen is the only one in Keyaru’s friends who is not very good at fighting.
She is a military strategist, not a warrior. Therefore, she can’t defend herself.
Of course, there are knights, but ordinary knights would not be able to protect Ellen.
That’s why Kureha warned him.
However, Ellen was smiling.
“Kureha-san, please don’t worry. I have Guren with me.”
“I’ll leave it to Guren!”
“Ellen will be protected by Guren!”
“That’s what I thought. If she’s really serious about protecting her, I can trust her. If she’s serious, she’s strong enough to beat even me. How did you manage to tame that fast-paced fox?”
“Well, it’s a matter of patiently talking to it, petting it, grooming it, and so on.”
“I love Ellen because she gives me lots of good meat! Guren and Ellen are friends!””
“I understand very well. Shall I give her lots of meat too?”
The little fox on Ellen’s lap squealed cheerfully.
Her breath smelled a little fishy.
It was because she had just eaten the good meat that Ellen had given it.
Ever since Keyaru’s departure, Ellen had been successfully cajoling Guren.
The power of meat is great, but it’s not the only thing.
She used every means at her disposal to get into Guren’s head.
People tend to think that the excellence of a military strategist is the ability to think of a plan, but that alone is only second-rate.
The ability to manipulate people in order to fully implement the plan.
That is the key.
As a top-notch military strategist, Eren naturally possesses this ability. It is easy for Ellen to tame a single fox cub.
“My clan can be of some help, though not as much as Guren. You should use them well.”
“Yes, I am counting on you. They are the only ones who can overpower the black monster in a one-on-one fight.”
” …… Freya and Kureha, please be careful. I’m sure they’ve already taken countermeasures. It won’t be as easy as it used to be.”
“I know that. We have enough countermeasures in place.”
I’ve also developed a technique for fighting in the air. I think it’s because my level has increased that I can do things one after another that I used to think were impossible.
Ellen had guessed several possible countermeasures the enemy could take against the plane.
Among them, the most likely was to invade and manipulate creatures that could fly, such as birds, with black magic.
Even though it would be difficult to make a human being fly, it shouldn’t be too difficult to strengthen a being that can fly from the start.
Freya and Kureha were heading for the airplane hangar.
After seeing them off, Ellen rang the bell.
Then, two black shadows appeared without a sound.
The Jioral Kingdom is proud of its Intelligence Department.
“Is it time, Master Ellen?”
The time has come. Give this letter to Prince Casta of Enritta Kingdom.
A letter to use , but had hoped not to use.
It was a strategy invented by Prince Casta and improved by Ellen.
It’s a strategy that requires more or less sacrifice.
This strategy could only be used if Keyaru got the information from the divine bird, and if Freya’s stalemate is successful.”
That’s why this is a move that Bullet didn’t anticipate.
So I’m assuming the success rate of this strategy is high.
“…… Fu, this situation is not very good. I’ve been thinking of about seventy-two possible developments, and this is the seventh-worst from the bottom.”
“Isn’t it a pain in the ass to think about all that? Guren doesn’t know any better.”
It is a hassle. But with all the assumptions and preparations, you will have a better chance of winning. It’s my role to manipulate the pieces that Master Keyaru has arranged for me. I can’t fight, but this is the only battlefield where I can be of use to you, and I have no intention of being inferior or giving in to anyone else.
A proud smile appeared on Ellen’s face.
She knew what she could do, what she couldn’t do, and most importantly, what Keyaru wanted from her.
She knew what she could do, what she couldn’t do, and more importantly, what Keyaru wanted from her. You just have to think about not getting Ellen killed.
“Yes, that’s fine. You alone can give me the peace of mind that I won’t be killed, and that’s very impressive. It allows me to send Kureha to attack and relieves my burden and tension.”
“Guren is amazing, that’s why she sleeps so much, to keep herself sharp.”
The little fox curled up and began to breathe.
“Now, will Prince Casta do as I expect?”
She mumbled and then began to write a letter to the Demon King ……, a maiden who, like her, was in love with Keyaru.
The invasion of these black monsters is a prelude.
Ellen’s thoughts were already looking ahead to the future of this battle.
That’s why she had to make her next move now.
That was the power of Ellen that Keyaru believed in.
