[Another Perspective] The Oppressed Ones 2


Nothing happened as we approached.


No, there are figures of what appear to be soldiers moving on the ramparts.
However, we are not being attacked.


At this distance, it wouldn’t be strange if we were to be shot by longbow at any moment.
However, the citadel was still silent.


We made a formation so that our shields would protect us from any arrows that flew up here, and then moved forward cautiously.


Finally, we reached a distance where we could look up at the castle gate.


“Could it be, this citadel is not functioning either?”


Just as I said this, a voice came from the top of the ramparts.


“This is Seat Village, Baron Van’s domain! Please state your affiliation and purpose of coming to this place!”


It was a child’s voice.
And the content of the message was such nonsense that before I could even start laughing, the soldiers who had grim faces burst into laughter first.


They’ve been nervous about attacking these few fortresses, and then this happened.
It would be cruel to ask them to stop laughing.


However, I couldn’t allow myself to laugh in this place where we are within the reach of their longbows.


“We are here to investigate this village! This village should not have had such walls like this, but why is it now a fortified city!?”


I asked him about this situation, with a lie mixed in.


I made up a lie and asked him about the situation, lied to make it look like that we were not hostile.


“It was recently built! Demonic beasts often appear here, so I’m strengthening my defenses! Why did your soldiers come all the way from Jiernetta Kingdom?”


“How did you know we are from Jiernetta Kingdom?”


We were careful not carrying any flag, and our armor was not much different from anyone else in the territory.
How could he guess we are foreigners?


As I was surprised, I heard a voice from the sky that sounded like a dumbfounded voice.


“…Well, it was just a little trick.
It’s evident since the fact that you came from Espa town straight to this village, but you don’t seem to be an intelligent person, you know?”


“A… A-Are you kidding me!? You, come down here! Don’t think you can take it easy on me just because you’re a kid!?”


I was furious and yelled back.
Then I hear laughter coming from the walls.


Perhaps the soldiers were laughing at us.


“Ahahaha, such an idiot! There’s a real idiot down there! Wahahahaha! If only there were more like you, this war would be easy as cake!”


“Hahaha, you couldn’t be more right.”


Ah, I can hear their ridiculing words even from here.




I was almost dizzy with rage.


This is all because they feel safe on top of the ramparts.
They must be getting worked up at the thought that they can’t be attacked.


I take a deep breath and yell again.


“You are the idiots! Don’t you know that Wyverns can attack from above!? The ramparts are meaningless!”


I shouted, and the voices from the walls stopped.


I call out to the soldier standing diagonally behind me.


“Send instructions to the puppet magician who controls the wyvern.
‘You are to fly low and scare them’.
They’ll be scared, I will advise their surrender.”


“Master Unimog, that’s absurd…”


“What do you mean!?”


I glare at the soldier who refuted me, and he raises his eyebrows and opens his mouth.


“If there is a four-elemental magician, the wyvern could be attacked.”


“Are you idiot!? Even if low rank, wyverns are still dragons!”


“… Understood.”


The soldier replied, unsatisfied.


A dragon flying at high speed has little chance of being hit.
Besides, even if it is hit once or twice by a magic attack, it will not die.
Furthermore, it would be a good indicator of the enemy’s strength.


Why can’t you understand something as simple as this?


“I have sent instructions to the puppet magician.”


“Good, If they panic, they may act recklessly, so be careful.”


I said this and glared at the top of the ramparts.


There seemed to be movement on top of the ramparts, but of course, there’s nothing they can do about the Wyvern.
At best, they could shoot a longbow, but such a thing is useless.


Let’s see how surprised they will be.


As I watched, the wyvern drew a wide arc and was about to fly over the ramparts at wind-like speed.


“Go! Teach them how to feel fear of the dragons!”


Just as I exclaimed with a high laugh, a voice was heard from the top of the ramparts.




With that voice, a black rain fell from the sky.


That black rain spread out in a fan shape, as if it was enveloping the wyvern.


The sound of the wind breaking and the wyvern grunting could be heard as the wyvern lost power and lost altitude.
The wyvern slams headfirst into a spot about halfway up the castle wall and falls directly to the ground.


Belatedly, the black rain slowed its speed and eventually came down on us, over our heads.


“Shi-shields! Raise your shields!”


Someone shouted, and I hurriedly ducked behind the heavily armored soldiers.
The next thing I knew, there was a heavy metallic clang, a wet crash, and a lot of screaming coming from all directions.


I shrank back and crouched down, unsure of what was going on.


The rain, which had been pouring down for several seconds, stopped, and I opened my eyes with trepidation.


Then what I saw could not be described by mere words, it was hell.


“I-Imposible!! Wha… this?”


All around me, my soldiers were lying on the ground.
They were groaning and screaming, and some may have died.


However, even if many were alive, they were in no condition to fight.


“Wha-what happened… what kind of magic…?”


I shouted to no one, but no reply came.
Like me, many were unscathed, but seemed unaware of what had happened.


I checked the fallen soldiers and found that there was no serious damage to their armor.
What kind of magic was that? 


That’s what I thought, but suddenly, I noticed something strange on the ground and knelt down.


There was a flat piece of metal with sharp knife-like tips on all four sides.
It was about the size of my palm and thin, so it was not heavy.


If you look around carefully, you will see countless such sheets of metal that were stuck on the ground.


“…this, what is this…!? Is this the identity of the attack just now??”


When I shouted, a child’s voice answered my question.


“Four-tipped star shuriken.
It’s a type of throwing weapon.
They’re thin and light, so I can pack a lot of them together in a single shot.
I’m happy that quite a few of them hit the mark.
Well, I still only have two dedicated ballistas that can fire one shot at a time.
I can’t deal with too many of the opponents yet.”


After hearing that voice, I turned around.


When I noticed, the bridge had already come down soundlessly and the gate was halfway open.
Through the door’s gap, I could see a child, way younger than I expected.


“The experiment was a success.
However, the range of the attack was narrower than I expected.
Also, it was dangerous that some of the shurikens were thrown in the air back to us.
It’s a little disappointing that I can’t use it next time until it’s improved.”


The child said this like evaluating a toy, chuckled and walked as if taking a stroll through the city.


On his left, right, and rear, men in armor lined up, swords and shields at the ready.
I can’t find any gap in their formation, but at this distance, I wonder if I could succeed…


As fast as I could, I moved.


“Burn to death! Oh flames…!”


I start chanting magic.
The fastest magic takes less than ten seconds.
Soldiers moved to guard with their shields, but they were too slow.




But there was someone faster than me.
Along with that man’s deep voice, a large amount of water flooded my surroundings.




And with the next word, all the water froze.
I was frozen to my ankles, unable to move, and due to my agitation, the magic I was chanting was dispelled.


“Clay wall.”


“Wind Blade Wall.”


Immediately after, I heard the voice of an older man and a middle-aged man, and a huge wall of earth and a tornado-like wall of wind appeared in front of me.


“Wahaha! As expected, I’m the fastest.
You can beat the experience! you hear?”


Saying so, a flashy man with a beautiful yet bewitching beauty appeared from the other side of the wall.


The child followed him, but my eyes could not leave the man’s face.


“Yo-you are…! Don’t tell me you’re Scuderia Kingdom’s…!”


Hearing my words, the man’s brows wrinkled and looked down at me…

{TL: I Finally have some free time, so I will be slowly fixing chaps backwards from this chapter, I am not good at editing, so I won’t be able to fix everything, but I will definitely fix the obvious mistranslations, gender errors, etc.
For the readers who continued following this series until now, I apologize for the low quality, I have other things I needed to focus on, so I was unable to really concentrate on this series.
I will do my best to clean up the earlier chaps and if possible, please point out the obvious mistakes instead of just complaining.
Complaining won’t help, instead if it was pointed out, I wold be able to fix it as quickly as I could.}
