Chapter 113 – Knight of a Certain Country (6)

-Emperors Kingdom’s 1st Knight’s Commander’s POV-

We receive a report saying the 5th knight order is doing well.

The knights of the entire castle are shouting with joy.

My office is quiet.

The only sound that can be heard is papers being flipped.

Then, someone announced their arrival at the entrance of my room.

The person who came into my room was my friend, the commander of the 4th knight order.

And a subordinate of mine.

These two looked somewhat relieved.

I gather the documents I’ve been processing.

As usual, these documents are requests from villages.

Lately, inquiries from those villages have piled up. They are asking for explanations.

It’s all about the unidentifiable light in the sky.

At first, they didn’t think anything of it but as days go by, their anxiety has been stirred.

They have been seeing those lights several times a day.

I supposed it can’t be helped.

I wouldn’t mind explaining it to them but even I don’t know what it is.

We’ve confirmed that it’s affecting the magic stone but that’s it.

I feel like something is slowly breaking down.

「Commander, have you heard?」

「Yeah.」

They made it to the forest as planned.

Even though they entered the forest, they were able to move on without being attacked by light.

I think there’s something wrong with that.

「You don’t seem to be happy about it.」

My vice commander doesn’t seem to like how I act.

「If it were the 4th knight order, I’m sure they didn’t have any problem at this point too.」

「Ah, no. We were attacked at this point.」

「Attack? What do you mean?」

「Eh?….I mean by the light.」

「Did anyone die or get hurt in that attack?」

「…….」

My vice commander looks unhappy but I ignore him.

My friend seems to be a little confused.

「You say you were attacked by the light but no one was hurt or killed. It’s just that the slaves escaped.」

「That’s….」

「No damage. It means it’s a warning.」

Something that only the absolute strong can afford to do.

It means it can afford to warn us.

If it were threatened, it would have attacked right away.

It might be a warning from someone with absolute power or perhaps not.

「But commander, if the 5th knight….」

「What’s next after warning?」

「Eh?….warning….attack」

「That’s right. This country has given it a chance to attack us.」

No one has ever been killed from the attack from the forest.

The mages only lost their memories. They were killed but not by the forest but by this country.

Yes, the forest hasn’t killed anyone yet.

I don’t know what happened to the escaped slaves though.

-0-

So, let’s say that the 5th knight order invaded the forest this time and attacked.

How would the forest react?

「It will fully recognize them as the enemy. And if the warning has already been given, the next step is to attack.」

My friend and my vice commander gasped.

The 5th knight order was able to enter the forest. That’s it.

We have no idea who the enemy is or how powerful it is.

What’s the point of being able to enter the forest?

It would only bring the wrath of the forest down on us.

「But the forest needs to be controlled….」

My vice commander didn’t understand anything at all.

He doesn’t know how powerful the enemy we’re dealing with.

It is difficult for a knight to admit the reality that there’s an opponent that he couldn’t face with sword alone in this world.

However, as a commander, it is my duty to guide my subordinates.

I have a duty to not let them die in vain.

「Vice commander!」

As soon as I called my vice commander, something heavy hit my whole body.

The entire room, or rather, the entire building made a creaking sound.

I couldn’t speak.

I couldn’t look up and felt as if I was being slammed against the desk I was sitting at.

My body screams.

It’s as if something horrible is forcibly holding me down from above.

Invisible and intimidating.

I have a feeling that my insides are being crushed.

No, it’s not just a feeling, that’s exactly what’s happening….

「Hah, hah, hah, hah」

I repeatedly breathe.

The intimidation was gone in an instant.

I raised my screaming body and looked towards where my friend and my vice commander were.

My vice commander’s arm is bent in a strange way.

He seems to be alive but unconscious.

My friend is conscious but he’s in a state similar to mine.

-0-

The wrath of the king of the world has finally crossed the forest.

      An excellent chapter but I would have like for the attack to be more aggressive.

      1. hawkyyonmission

        I feel like the mc won’t kill anyone and would try to talk things out

      2. otakukamikazes

        Agree completely and this was an unintentional attack.

        I feel our MC’s attacks are all reactive/reflective So the more they throw at him the greater the rebound on them. Those two knights were just suppressed because all the knights use the magic stone’s power to a greater or lesser degree, but they were just chatting in an office, not actively throwing attacks. I think the 5th knights who were invading the forest and doing harm, and the king and mages who use more of the magic stone’s power to keep themselves young etc. will probably get hit worst in proportion to the amount of harm they have caused.

    I want to know the state of the 5th. He acted with the intention of destroying the cause afterall.

    My my MC, and that’s because he doesn’t know what he did, imagine when he find out the truth, if he finds out,

    Don’t make MC anger you won’t like what happens when you make him anger.
    Based on the experience from the two chatting knights I think the 5th knight platoon is now meat pancakes…

    The MC might not be a god but seems to certainly have the power of a god in terms of magic at least.

    I do wonder if the MC sister will be summoned in a hero summoning.
