Chapter 459 – Village Five’s Sole Ninja, Nana Foguma (I)

Hello.

My name is Nana.

Nana Foguma.

I’m a mercury created for managing the Sun Castle.

Presently, I’m assigned to Village Five under the direction of the village chief of Big Tree Village. My task is collecting information under the direction of Youko, the acting village chief of Village Five.

I have no complaints in both my post and duty but I want a unified command chain.

However, I don’t think that’s possible. If the village chief and acting village chief ordered me at the same time, who should I follow?

「You should follow Youko, she’s your boss.」

「You should obey the one in the highest position, village chief.」

…..

Can you two discuss it first?

When you come to a conclusion, please let me know.

No, my mission-desu.

You might not know this but I have an inconspicuous appearance.

Not too beautiful, not too ugly.

In short, a mediocre woman.

I’m using it to gather information by blending into the village or the city.

At first, I was doing it alone but given the size of Village Five, I’m cooperating with reliable locals.

Today, I was supposed to go around the stores on the south side of Village Five but Youko-sama stopped me.

It seems like the wives and children of village chief are evacuating to Village Five because of the severe weather condition in Big Tree Village.

If they want to get away from severe weather, I think it would be better for them to evacuate to Sun Castle, I mean Village Four, and not in Village Five. I still can’t accept that the Sun Castle is being called like that.

What a shame.

Let’s ask Bell to enhance my acceptance ability next time.

Anyway, if they are evacuating in Village Five…they will be staying at the mansion, right?

I understand.

How did this happen?

The children of Village Five had a dispute with village chief’s children.

I was forced to work hard to understand and control the situation.

My stomach hurts.

This trouble….what caused it?

I can only say bad timing.

Youko-sama planned a meeting between the wives of Village Chief and the influential people of Village Five.

Some may know them but some may not.

We don’t know how long they will evacuate so I think it’s not a bad thing to prevent trouble.

The meeting was held at Youko-sama’s mansion and it was held in the form of luncheon. Influential people from Village Five were contacted.

They were suddenly called in the morning and the luncheon is scheduled at noon but as influential people of Village Five, they won’t be able to refuse.

Those powerful people of Village Five are not people who merely follow orders.

They were chosen by Youko-sama and obtained the position as influential people of Village Five.

They are excellent people.

Therefore, those influential people of Village Five went to Youko-sama’s mansion with their children.

I think they want her to meet their children.

At that stage, the influential people of Village Five don’t know that the children of village chief are there too.

Also, they can’t suddenly bring their children to participate in the luncheon.

The number of people who’ll participate in the luncheon is fixed.

It can cope with a slight increase in the number of people but it will be disrespectful to suddenly bring children to the luncheon hosted by Youko-sama for the influential people of Village Five.

If they can’t have her meet their children at lunch, there’s still a possibility of meeting her when they go home.

That might be what they are thinking.

Even if the chances are low, it doesn’t mean that there’s no chance.

I think they are doing their best for their current position.

Most of the influential people brought their children.

Those children are all familiar with each other.

Some of them might not know some but I know all of them.

Those children gathered near the summit of Village Five.

They are loyal to Village Five and are expected to be responsible for Village Five in the future.

I expect them to be so too.

Those children were told by their parents to play together during the parents’ luncheon.

They don’t want them to run around after all.

The children, who were sitting around, nodded obediently.

Those children will not do anything on their own.

There’s no benefit in causing trouble near Youko-sama’s mansion.

Because of that, I took my eyes off them for a while.

I’m really sorry about that.

I judged that the influential people who are participating in the luncheon are more important.

Who would have thought that the moment I took my eyes off them, the village chief’s children who are playing near Youko-sama’s mansion….. Alfred-sama’s group will be troubled by them.

The content of their argument is simple….a misunderstanding.

「You, who permits you to play here? This is Youko-sama’s mansion. Name yourself.」

「Hello. I’m Alfred. We are playing here because our parents told us so. Youko-san knows about it too.」

「What Youko-san! It’s Youko-sama!」

…..

It’s a misunderstanding because they don’t know the position of both sides. It is similar to a child of a vassal acting like a prince.

And Alfred-sama has even given his name. He is the son of village chief-desu.

If you don’t know about him, you wouldn’t know how to behave.

And not knowing him made things worse.

That is how the world works.

This is the reason why Youko-sama also planned to have the influential people of Village Five meet the wives of village chief….

Alfred-sama tried to make the place more comfortable but….he hasn’t studied enough.

When he bowed his head, there’s no way to salvage the situation.

Let me say it clearly.

It’s counterproductive.

I even got afraid of the eyes of the children behind Alfred-sama….especially Tiselle-sama.

In terms of position, I’m on Alfred-sama’s side.

However, considering the interests of Big Tree Village and Village Five, I’m with the children of Village Five.

Of course, only secretly.

For the time being, I’ll disguise myself as a maid.

「Young master, what are you doing?」

I interrupted their conversation.

「We have prepared food in the cafeteria of the village hall. Please go. Alfred-sama, Tiselle-sama, Ursa-sama, Ririus-sama, Riguru-sama, Ratte-sama, Torain-sama, and Nutt-sama, we have prepared food for you on the second floor. I will guide you there.」

I made the two groups go in different directions and gently pass information about Alfred-sama.

The children of Village Five are excellent.

I’m sure they can tell who they were dealing with given the difference in treatment.

The second floor of the mansion is Youko-sama’s private space.

Only Alfred-sama can freely get in and out of there.

…..

……….

Don’t tell me they didn’t?

They didn’t notice?

The Village Five’s children are heading towards the village hall as if nothing happened.

….

Eh? Did they really not notice?

Backfired?

Complete backfire!

Before parting, the Village Five’s children should have apologized.

With me supporting them, I would put this quarrel to an end….

Ah, their complexions are getting worse.

Did they notice?

Great.

They are sprinting towards us.

Wonderful judgment.

But they are a little too late.

Alfred-sama’s group, including me, have already entered the mansion.

Time has run out.

I’m sorry.

However, if they continued arguing earlier, the children of Village Five would have been executed. Let’s assume that I was able to save them from that fate.

It is commendable that the children of Village Five informed their parents properly without hiding anything.

The newly informed parents are holding their stomachs….

At least it is better than not being informed.

Youko-sama, who heard my report, is holding her head.

As expected.

If I’m in Youko-sama’s position, I’ll also hold my head.

The children of her subordinates quarreled with the children of her boss.

The easiest solution is to fire all the parents of the children.

However, those parents are influential people of Village Five.

There are many alternatives but it will take time for Youko-sama to raise another batch of limbs.

It would be regrettable to just cut them off.

Youko-sama is truly kind.

The measure the kind Youko-sama took is to quickly apologize to village chief.

Big Tree Village is blocked due to bad weather but that’s nothing to Youko-sama.

Please do your best.

That’s what I’d like to say but before she left, another report came….yeah, a bad report.

Other than Alfred-sama and Tiselle-sama, their group stormed into the hangout place of Village Five’s children.

It’s not a wrong move considering the face of noble’s society but it’s a strange thing for children who are about 10 years old to do.

What kind of education are they receiving in Big Tree Village?

No, I’m just wondering.

I don’t want to be a teacher for Big Tree Village’s children.

    An air force officer goes to heaven and at the gate St Peter asks him if he has ever done anything in his life that he believes makes him worthy of admittance to heaven.
    The officer flyboy replies; yes, I once went into a bar with four of my pilot friends and saw two Seabees harassing a young girl at the bar, so being a gentleman I went up to the biggest one and told him to leave this young lady alone. When he refused I told him again more forcefully. This time I slapped him across the face and told this Seabee to stand down.
    St Peter said this was a very good thing to do and asked when the pilot did this great act.
    The pilot replied; about 5 minutes ago! My friends should be here shortly!

        Alfred is so worthy of being Hiraku’s heir. He’s so tame like his father. No wonder everyone is so protective of him. lol

  2. lycopene322

    > I can’t contain it anymore.
    The time when Alfred hits his teen physique feature, there’s only one on my mind, and he really looks like “Hayate the combat butler”

    > What if at chapter 600, Urza, Tissele and Alfred are on their full teen @18 yrs old and looks like university models.
    What if their wits, power and influence transpired exponentially because of how overpowering their group are.
    I remember Frau when she was going to Big Tree the first time that she will control the village at he will, but really back fired.
    And these childrens, they can control what they want to control, not because of their backing, just because they can…

    I’m surprised Tiselle didn’t beat them up right there and then considering she’s a mega brocon. And I love how Tiselle stayed with Alfred and didn’t go with Ursa and Gurara to the raid because she’d rather be with big bro.

    1. Ferras

      In the previous chapters it is said that Tiselle stayed behind to distract Alfred, because he would probably be against the attack.

    2. Squirfail

      i forgot that Tiselle isnt the kind and gentle one… I do hope Aurora also doesnt have that Malbit personality

      1. Lahn Fyornyll

        If I remembered correctly in on of the Village chief future dream chapter, it’s Loo’s daughter, I forgot her name is, that has a Malbit personality disorder , leading a squadron of angel bombers.

    3. Tsuki

      The reason Tisselle didn’t follow to raid the other kids is because she confined Alfred inside her Golem so that he won’t be able to stop the other children from attacking. No one else except for Tisselle can confined Alfred.

    4. mento pont

      Guraru not there because Hakuren took her and Hiichiro to Dorain.

  4. Zax

    Well Big Tree Village has a Dragon in charge of teaching the kids already haha. Thanks for the chapter

  5. Nugget

    I can see why they’re so desperate in serving Village Chief even though he himself doesn’t obsess over the hierarchy. He’s provided them with almost everything from food, shelter, family, security, peace, culture, etc. and the least they could do is protect his children. I too would be groveling to his feet. XD

  6. Flrncitly06

    Now Im so curious of the pov of the vc’s children and the v5’s children but whats sad is i never read any pov of the children up until now except for the future children pov

  7. Flrncitly06

    Also what i dont understand towards the v5 children’s is how they didn’t notice how immaculate the children of vc look I mean just looking at alfred he already look like a prince not to mention tiselle whos mother is an angel

  8. Lamora_R2

    I love how we get little tips on the children personalities,

    Don’t know how it started but Tiselle isn’t a brocon, not even close,

  9. Chris Sizemore

    Honestly I’d blame the entire conflict on Ursa, because this is how she does everything.

  10. Elisus

    It’s been mentioned before that Tiselle can fly, meaning she has wings and is clearly an angel. It is common knowledge that angels are a lot stronger than humans so the Village 5 children were dumb for picking a fight with her group.

    1. Xscalon

      They did said in the early chapters that angels can hide their wings so that they can appear as a human.

  11. HikiKnight

    – Alfred lowering his head to people of lower standing than him as he is the heir and eldest son of VC made ursa (probably his future wife) and the kids RAGE.. even though VC doesnt really care about standings the villages have them.

    – In terms of fighting power among the kids, how do you guys rank the children?
    obviously its Ursa Guraru as one two….. lets not include Hiichirou and Rananon here they’re probably still babies at this point.

    to me its probably:
    Ursa < the brave it is said that she has the power to kill a God.
    Guraru < DORA-gon
    Tiselle < angel probably trained by Tier,
    Alfred < probably trained by Loo but still loses to Tiselle due to affinity same as his mom to Tier.
    Torain < Ann's son.
    Nutt < Ursa's playmate, well they all are but she's always mentioned to be with ursa.
    Ririus, Riguru, Ratte < not much info bout these guys but they're trained and probably goes out hunting with their mothers.
    < among the 3 Ririus is probably the strongest one as hes the next head of the elf side of the VC Clan.

    Can Tiselle hide her wings or something? It is just weird how V5 children didn’t see Tiselle as an angel race.
