Chapter 583 – Special Force

Early morning.

A Village Five resident reported something to the guards.

There was an incident.

Five guards rushed to the scene but failed to solve it.

Noon.

13 additional guards were sent and even with the cooperation of nearby residents on the site, they did not solve the problem.

At that stage, the guards have no choice but to contact Youko.

-0-

Night.

Seven operations have been executed but all failed.

The guards judge that they’re in a deadlock and ask Youko to make a decision.

Youko, who was asked to decide, was troubled.

She knew she should decide on how she thinks village chief would act.

Thinking about the character of village chief….

She threw the decision making to village chief.

「A puppy fell into the sewers of Village Five and you can’t take it out?」

I received the report about that incident from Youko after dinner.

The location is at the foot of Village Five.

It’s in a place where there are lots of houses and shops.

The puppy fell in a rainwater hole of the sewer. There should have been a lid but it had come off.

Fortunately, the puppy survived the three-meter fall below since the hole was not vertical but curved.

However, the hole is not big enough for people to enter and light can’t reach the puppy so they don’t even know what exactly is its status.

Its survival was judged based on its cry.

They already tried different approaches to rescue the puppy but it all failed.

Now it is for me to decide.

Whether to destroy several houses, shops, and sewer to rescue the puppy or abandon it.

「Is there a possibility for the puppy to escape on its own? It’s curved after all.」

「Yes, but the curvature is steep. It seems to be difficult for the puppy to climb on its own.」

「What about magic?」

「In order to prevent being vandalized by hostile forces, sewers have anti-magic features. It is impossible.」

「How about you turn into a fox and dive there?」

「Unfortunately, even in my smallest form, I can’t.」

Hitoe might be able to do it but Youko is reluctant to send her in a place where she can’t see her.

I’m also against having Hitoe do anything dangerous.

Yeah.

This is certainly difficult to decide.

I asked about the rescue operation that the guards have done so far and they have done everything I can think of.

It can’t be helped.

I’ll just have to dig a hole from the place where it might be and rescue it.

The anti-magic feature has no effect on me.

「That won’t work.」

My idea was rejected by Youko.

「We don’t have time. According to the person who designed the sewer, if it rains, the place where the puppy is will be underwater.」

「We just have to cover the place where it fell and rainwater won’t go in….right?」

「Yes. However, if the amount of water flowing through the sewer increases, the place where the puppy is will definitely be submerged since it is similar to a water tank. And it usually rains in the middle of the night these days.」

Say that earlier.

We don’t have time to relax.

We have to do something and we have to do it now.

「Are you planning to take the path of destruction?」

Youko said that we might only need to destroy one.

「….I understand. I’ll prepare what’s needed immediately.」

Please.

When I said that and got up, a spiderling put its hand on my shoulder, no, leg….

What’s the matter?

It seems like this spiderling wants to say something….

……

I stared at Youko.

After Youko nodded, she returned to Village Five saying she’ll make some arrangements.

-0-

Midnight.

When the rain began to fall.

We arrive at the scene and only the guards are there.

The residents were all evacuated.

Other than the guards, there are only me and Youko.

I organized a special force for this puppy rescue operation.

There shouldn’t be any problem….or so I thought.

When they saw the spiderlings, the guards fainted one after another.

They’re not that scary.

Okay okay.

You don’t have to be depressed.

-0-

I focused and continued with the operation.

The strategy is simple, seven spiderlings will go into the hole, secure the puppy, and come back.

That’s it.

So, I watched the spiderlings that jumped into the hole.

By the way, according to Youko, the guards need to stay as they are.

I guess so but they’ll surely be noisy once they wake up.

Sorry.

-0-

A little later, I heard a cry from inside the hole.

It sounds like the puppy but….areh?

Isn’t it a little ferocious?

Why is this puppy crying in a higher-pitched voice?

When I was thinking of that, I heard an explosion inside the hole.

What is happening?

Are the spiderlings fighting it?

Even if the puppy resisted, isn’t it too intense?

When I was asking Youko what could be happening, the spiderlings came back.

Seven of them.

Good.

All of them are safe.

And behind the spiderlings is…they are pulling something with their web….

What is that?

It’s a puppy but it has two heads.

Youko said that it’s a monster called orthros.

I see.

Is that a common street animal?

「There’s no way that’s true. Though it is inferior to inferno wolves, an orthros is also a dangerous monster. Someone definitely brought it here but it probably escaped and fell into that hole.」

I see.

「I have not received any report that an orthros puppy was brought in Village Five. In other words, this can be considered as a work of a hostile force….unforgivable.」

Youko is angry.

Before the angry Youko, five men tied up with webs were dropped.

When I looked up, I saw half tatami mat size spiderlings lined up on the roof.

In short, they caught the culprit of this incident.

Thanks.

However, why are you in Village Five….Youko secretly allowed them.

They are a special force.

Aren’t you cool?

The spiderling who participated in the rescue operation waved their legs at the spiders on the roof.

-0-

The five men caught by the spiderlings were intruders from another country.

They secretly brought the orthros puppy in Village Five to secretly breed it here.

Their plan is to make it rampage when it grows up.

And a long story.

However, I feel like I’ve already heard about it somewhere….

Ah, the incident at the royal capital where Tiselle’s group got involved.

There’s a lich over there.

But I guess they didn’t breed it.

…..

Should I report this to the demon king or Beezel and have them check each city?

There’s a high possibility that other places have something similar happening behind the scenes.

I’m worried about Shashaato City.

-0-

Something similar has indeed happened to Shashaato City but Miyo has already solved it.

Amazing.

However, at least report it to me.

    Looks like another country will be featured in a documentary ”how to destroy a country”.

  6. Chronoa

    Next time big bro Cerberus will come and get commonsense-chan destroy as well.

  7. Shino

    They want to breed a double headed doggo which inferior to Spiderling’s special force and Kuros inside the village that’s protected by them🤣

    1. Chris Sizemore

      The spiderlings and inferno wolves don’t normally go to Village 5. Village 5 is aware of the high elves, mountain elves, one lizard man, the beast men, Some of the angels, a lot of the dragons, VC’s wives, and Youko. Village 5 isn’t aware of VC’s true strength, but they should have rumors of him hunting monsters around Village 5 since he did that in the early days.

      So people in Village 5 should be aware that VC is strong, and has allies that you can not afford to antagonize. Really, after being involved in destroying 2 countries in the last few years everyone should be avoiding VC but for some reason people want to mess with VC when there is no clear benefit to be had from doing so. They should at least have some reason like acquiring the manufacturing secrets, formulas, or kidnapping Loo.

      1. Shino

        Well, i know that much and the reason why the spiderlings is called a special force bcs they would cause a chaos If someone seeing them strolling inside the city, we still yet knowing what the kuros role inside the Village five or maybe doesn’t have a role at all and we’re not talking about village five that already know a ‘little’ about VC’s force (village five is VC’s belonging and they want to repay VC for bringing them prosperity) but the other country that planning to disrupt the demon kingdom by using double headed doggo
        And which 2 country are you talking about? I only remember about the country that kidnapping Tissele and it’s the same country as the prince that have been cured by Loo iirc, ohh do you mean the elf empire? 😂

  8. Always Correct

    Welp, this orthros pup is unlucky to be in a village that is lead by a deity fox, has a spiderling Special Force, near a village filled with dragons, and inferno wolves. Oh well, maybe it can bond with Guronde since she also has multiple heads. lol

    1. cjfawks

      new “ferocious” “monster” you mean?

  9. Zax

    That orthos is gonna cry going to big tree village. Thanks for the chapter

    「In order to prevent being vandalized by hostile forces, sewers have anti-magic features. It is impossible.」

    the heck, V5 has got some stupidly high(magi-)tech sewers. anti-terrorist sewer holes!

  11. pokeperson1000

    The spiderlings had to actually *fight* the orthros? I call bullshit. Don’t they have the innate trait of making everyone who sees them for the first time faint on sight? Orthros should have been brought out without any resistance.

    1. Countrymage

      It’s fight or flight, most people pass out, because they know they can’t run. For wild animals, it’s more likely that they will try a suicidal attack when cornered, it’s a good way to gauge the bravery of The Knight of the Pantry, he lied down belly up, rather than attack or pass out from fear, when he met the Aneneko.

      1. pokeperson1000

        I could have sworn their stun bash innate ability mentioned back in chapter 59 was a passive that activated on everything that saw it for the first time, not just a fear response. Maybe I remembered wrong, who knows.

        On a side note, there is nothing about the action of fainting on the spot that could be considered a “fight” in a fight or flight response.

      2. Countrymage

        Forgot they had that racial ability, but it only works once, just the first time you meet them.

      3. pokeperson1000

        And why did you bring up the aneneko, I was talking about the demon spiders.

      4. Countrymage

        It’s the aura of the strong that knocks all these people out, not that they recognize what is terrifying them, and the Aneneko also have that aura. Most of their wannabe suitors were terrified on meeting them, and were beat down if they tried to fight back, or humiliated when they passed out from the abject fear. Like I said, The Knight of the Pantry was the only cat that didn’t attack them, or pass out as an escape mechanism, he just rolled over, and let them do whatever they wanted to him. He’s the bravest commoner to ever visit BTV.

      5. pokeperson1000

        I am well aware that it only works the first time you meet them, that’s my whole point here. The Orthros pup sees them for the first time, and what happens? nothing, it just directly takes an aggressive stance.

        And what do you mean you forgot the spiders had that racial ability, I literally had it stated in the first comment you replied to. It was the whole basis of my argument.

      6. Countrymage

        You mentioned the chapter, until I reread it I didn’t remember it was an actual ability, and the reason I repeated the only works once thing, is that the orthros has two heads, maybe one stayed awake.

    2. Shino

      It’s only a pup dude, and the orthos here is wild beast. dunno if the orthos here have an intelligence just like the kuros and fenrir or not

  12. Kepz

    Ah yes an addition to the pack we have inferno wolves, fenrir and now an orthos to add into the gene pool a few generations of breeding and were gonna see the pinnacle of genus canis

  13. Urahara Kisuke

    And Orthorus has entered the flock. Inferno Wolf, Fenrir and now Orthorus? Maybe in the future “Cerberus” will be added too.

    1. cjfawks

      Well seems that Cerberus is only natural course of matter.

  14. ncdxero88

    A question though, were the half tatami spiderlings a permanent force in V5 or just this once? Also, there’s no way in heck any monster can do anything with V5, remember that there’s one of Zabuton’s first gen spiderlings in the nearby forest. I forgot the name, but it’s the Guardian Spider.

    1. Lamora_R2

      The Guardian Spider is near DK kingdom not V5, I don’t remember its name too hahaahah,

      1. ncdxero88

        Oh yeah, you’re right. It was during the beast boy school days. Got that mixed up, lol.

  15. STILL A FAN

    And another stupid country will fall… maybe VC’s dream about his son’s (only the high elves and Oni) going for war will come true….
