Chapter 42: Now it’s time to go to Dwell

After preparing for the expedition, we were driving a steam car and a carriage to Dwell. Ein and the others were leading the way in the horse-drawn carriage.

Steam-powered cars are not yet mass-produced. Besides, it takes a lot of sense to operate such a thing, so there are only a limited number of them that can be driven. At the moment, Vigna is the one who’s driving the one I’m in, and Neil, who is now able to drive the smaller types……

Maybe I can ask Ys-san to make a manual for me next time. As I was thinking this, Galatea came toward the steam car I was riding in.

“Master, it seems that the supply team has joined up with us. They, too, are ready to leave immediately.”

“Ah, well, thank you. I’m grateful to Lemech-san. So how’s he doing?”

I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard that the guards who had brought the aid from the Cassius family were able to join us without being attacked by bandits or monsters. With this, preparations for the expedition trip with about 30 guards, including us, are now completely in place.

For this expedition, I borrowed power from Lamech-san via Noah. Potatoes and weapons can be made as much as you want in Asgard, but horses, dried meat, alcohol and water were a bit dangerous for two consecutive expeditions… I wanted to avoid him getting information about new weapons. 

I remember the look on the face of the guard who was spying on me with an indifferent expression on his face.

“You don’t need to be worried about anything. I don’t think it’ll be a problem if they find out about the new weapons after they join us, since it will be difficult for them to take action.”

“Oh … I’m glad Lemech-san was able to lend a hand. As you said in your letter, he bought me a week’s worth of time.”

“Well, not only he, but also other humans are welcomed politely at Lemech’s place, and they seem satisfied. A feast served by a prestigious noble… I’m a little envious, Master.”

“I wish we could catch that spy as quickly as possible.”

“Don’t say that, sometimes you can use them if you let them run free. Be that as it may, when this battle is over, why don’t you and Noah go say hello?”

“Fufu, that’s called a death flag, Master.”

Vigna complains and Galatea makes light joke. The spy buys time to get information, and at the same time, the other guards kill two birds with one stone by being treated politely by a prestigious nobleman, thereby increasing their loyalty to me.

“Don’t worry …… we won’t lose. We’ve done a lot of preparation for this. And we’re not just going to save them. We’re going to make sure this expedition is beneficial to Asgard.”

I look at the guards riding together toward Dwell and make a new decision. I know the number of reinforcements we can send is small, but considering Asgard’s defenses, we’re on the edge and reinforcements aren’t just about the number of soldiers. We brought some things that might be useful for this time.

“Now all we have to do is ask them what’s going on, Galatea, please.”

“Yes, Master, I’ll take care of it.”

“Have a safe trip.”

So I jumped onto Galatea from the steam car. She holds me gently. I thought it was the other way around, but I guess that was to be expected.

“How’s it going, is there something wrong?”

When I spoke to Ein and Gimli, who were running the horse in the lead with Galatea on their backs, they both looked and sounded surprised.

“Yes, I have a particular problem with …… huh! Eh!”

“Oh, amazing. Is this the power of the relic golem of Souzi?”

“No, I’m not a golem, I’m a robot.”

The same Asgardian territory, the first time in a year, the two were in the same place.  Gimli was drinking with Bowman every now and then, but he was holed up in his workshop.

Both Ein and Gimli were discussing with Vigna how to fight in the mines and working with magic tools, so they didn’t come to the mansion much.

Well, I couldn’t communicate much because I was too occupied with the handover to Noah and the new weapon, so I can’t speak for others…..

This is one of the downsides of having a larger population. It’s a little sad to be so far away from the people.

“There are no particular abnormalities so far. There are only weak monsters around here, so don’t worry.”

“Oh, that’s good to know. If things continue as they are, we should be able to reach our destination village by the end of the day.”

“Yes. …It’s only a short distance once we pass through this forest. You’ll probably be surprised.”

Ein says such a thing in a mischievous manner, which is unusual for her, who seems to be always serious. There is a hint of pride mixed in with her expression.

It was when we entered the forest while talking about such things. Galatea and Gimli make grim faces.

“Master!”

“I have a bad feeling about this.”

Seeing the two staring deep into the forest, they use hand signs to tell the people following them to stop. These things are called flags in other worlds,…….

I don’t know how Gimli noticed, Galatea notwithstanding.

“I can use earth magic. I can always pick up footprints. But this weight is not human or goblin, it’s something much heavier.”

“No way, this place was only supposed to be inhabited by goblins…..”

That one word sent tensions between us. No way, is it mineral ants? 

“You guys stay vigilant around the perimeter. I’m sorry, Gimli and Ein, can you lead the way?”

“Of course.”

They get off their horses and go ahead of us. Then we follow with Galatea. Of course, I remember to make sure I have a gun in my pocket.
