I wonder why some people choose to read on aggregator/scrapper site that doesn't even give credit to translator...
Sigh... whatever... thanks to you who read this on AYA translation...
Since it’s written as 勇者 (Yuusha), from now on, I change hero to brave. Because 英雄 (eiyuu: hero) also used here.
The Village of Ruin
Author: 天乃聖樹 (Amano Seiju) Raw link: https://ncode.syosetu.com/n1424ez/3/ Translator: AYA Translation
Conclusion. The village wasn’t destroyed.
All of the villagers still alive. Neither monster’s appearance nor shadow could be seen. The cows were mooing and the sheep eating the grass. The villagers were either working on the field, doing laundry in the river or chopping firewood. It’s very peaceful.
“Lie… even though it was awfully ruined…”
I jaw dropped. In my first playthrough this village was annihilated. The houses were on the fire, the square become sea of blood, and so on. When they saw the village condition, the brave and his friends went around to examine the village. The brave, warrior, and priestess were like, “Is the anything precious?” “There is chest that seems can be used by the priestess.” “Fufufu, they really know fashion sense even though it’s rural area. Is it night equipment?” while exploring the village.
“Ruined? What do you mean Nene-sama?”
“…no, it’s nothing.”
I shook my head to answer Flan’s wondering expression.
I see, it’s ‘not yet’ destroyed. I only know about the monsters annihilated subjugation party and a village, but I didn’t know about the attack order. We arrived here on time.
“Ooi Flan! You safe!”
An aunt with good body came with a lot of bread in a big basket.
Flan ran to the aunt named Rashi with sparkling eyes.
“Welcome home. Are you hurt somewhere?”
“I’m fine. I got some wounds but Nene-sama here helped me.”
“Oh my goodness. Are you healer-san?”
Flan looked at me.
“Err… well, something like that.”
I avoid the words. I would be troublesome if my identity as necromancer was known. For me and also for Flan who became undead.
“Thank you, thank you. This child is always doing absurd things. I was very worried when I heard she joined the subjugation party. If you like, here eat this.”
Rashi gave us bread she took from the basket. The bread was too huge! I almost can’t hold it with my two arms. Did I have to walk like this?
Ah… but the bread smelled so good. Come to think of it, last night I fell asleep without receiving food from the braves.
“Is this village your birthplace, Flan?”
“No, My birthplace and the place I was raised is more far away. I was working as mercenary around this area, and went to Obuza village on my day off. Everyone is so kind, aunt Rashi is too helpful like a mother… here is something like my second home. I’m gland aunty is safe…”
I, have seen that person, rolled on the road side, died. Rather than now, the time in the future is already past for me.
“But, there is no monster, and the village is fine. I’m really sorry to make you come here. I’m relieved now.”
“No… it’s too fast to be relieved…”
There were loud roars getting closer to the village. Blood horses, blazing cows, and double headed wolf. Herd of bloodthirsty monsters rushed with a tremor. Something like that can’t be defeated just by ordinary mercenaries. Each of them just a C rank monster, but the number was too much.
A screaming village. The villager desperately entering their house. But I know such thing was useless. In my first play through, almost all buildings in the village were destroyed and the contents dragged out.
“…Nene-sama. I’m really sorry. Just a little, but please give me some time.”
Flan took out her sword and strongly grasped its handle.
“Are you doing it alone? Even the subjugation party was annihilated you know.”
“Because here is important place for me.”
“You won’t win.”
“That’s may be true.”
“I won’t resurrect you again you know?”
Although I said that, didn’t seem to withdraw. She was really amazing girl. Even I didn’t want to die twice.
“It can’t be helped. I’ll help you. It’s not for this village you know. I just don’t want to lose a convenient underling!”
“Instead, you have to properly act as vanguard. If you can hold them out for 10 minutes, I will crush them all.”
The herd of monsters were roaring and getting closer.
Mowed down her sword, Flan slashed two headed wolf one by one. There was no problem in her reaction and destructive power. The resurrection magic is success.
I summon vengeful spirits and sent them to the monsters. Receiving the curse, a certain pattern appear on the monster’s body. That made them suffering and die.
From the opposite side of where Flan currently act as vanguard, a two-headed wolf rushed toward me. I tried to use my vengeful spirit’s curse, but that won’t make in time.
At that time, Flan jumped to me with a lightning speed, stood between me and the two-headed wolf. Splendid sound roared when she guarded with her sword. She look at the two headed wolf which gnawing her sword with her cold eyes.
“…Don’t dare you touch Nene-sama!”
With single slash, she cut off the wolf’s fang and chin.
What was this? It’s too easy to fight! Unlike the braves, Flan properly guard me so I can concentrate to chant the spell and she even use her body as sacrifice.
One by one monster’s corpses were increased and I also finished my preparation. Let’s start!
I took cylinder container from my pocket. The content was the blood of man eating bats. Scatter the blood on the battlefield, and starting to chant the spell.
“The time has come. A time when the dead awake, a banquet of grudge. Answer my invitation, fight, kill each other. Sald Bes Endecta!!”
The scattered blood became mist and carried the curse to the monster’s dead body, erode them.
They got up, a group of monster’s dead bodies.
With a glittering unmoving pitch black eyes, they rushed toward their friend when they still alive.
They monsters defeated by the dead were twitching and then fell to the ground, but after awhile they woke up as undead and attacked the living monsters. Infinite chain of slaughter. Wash blood with blood, a hell with blood colored space.
“Ahaha! Dance, dance, danceeee!! It’s a banquet of the dead!”
I raised my both arms, fluttering the dress’ sleeves, and dancing with the dead on the battlefield. Offering kagura dance to the realm of the dead’s God Osiris to increase the curse, speed up the mutual destruction.
The dead keep increasing, even the corpses from the village came join together.
I was spinning while standing on tip of my toe. Finished my performance, I immediately stop and clapping my hands. All the dead bodies were fell at once.
The only one stood uninjured were Flan and I.
Flan opened her eyes wide.
“Are you satisfied with this?”
Now then, should I immediately run away? Actually I want to fight a bit more modest, but the number of enemies was too big, I have no choice to use flashy necromancy magic.
With this, of course my identity as necromancer was exposed, it can’t be helped if the villager will be afraid of me. I was already getting used to be talked behind my back. It would be better if I leave before they throw stone on me, that’s also won’t make me feel any disgust.
The villager came out from every house one by one, surrounding the area.
“You are amazing, Missy!” “You save us!” “You are this village’s hero!” “That’s too cool!” “Onee-chan, thank you!!”
The villagers that I couldn’t save in my first playthrough, they alive, and praise me. Could it be, I can more successfully save the world in my second playthrough? The people that the braves can’t save too, a lot of them.
… what was this? I just want to have my revenge on the braves, so return to two years ago but…
“Ah… umm… I’m tired! So, bye!”
Broke off from delighted villager, I escaped from the village. I already getting used of being insulted, but being appreciated is not at all. I don’t know what responds should I give for that.
Beside me, there was Flan who chased me. She looked at me with glittering eyes.
“Really, thank you very much. Nene-sama is really wonderful person. I… will happily die if it’s for the sake of Nene-sama.”
“No, you already died!”
I must make this girl understand. That I was not a good person. If not, I felt it would be troublesome in the future.
“You know, I’ll tell you what my purpose is. I have grudge towards the brave’s party. That’s why I went to journey in order to revenge on them. Going ahead of them so I can save the world instead of them, success in life, and push them down to the lowest place. That’s my plan. And you are just being used in that scheme. OK?”
“In other words… Nene-sama doing her best to save the world right? I’m respecting you.”
This girl, she only listen to pure part of my talk! It’s not like that! I was moving because of more thick and muddy grudge!
“Aah… jeez… I’m tired.”
I made one sigh and sit down on the ground.
I mean, I really tired. Sent my soul to two years in the past, made ritual to revive Flan for a whole night, after that, walked with Flan to Obuza village and used huge necromancy magic. I was dead tired.
And when I whined a little, my familiar was made light of me, (You doing your best for everyone right!? You are my Goddess! Or something like those.) I won’t say anything though.
“I will carry you then.”
Flan quickly lifted me up.. Easily, with princess carry.
“Wha!what are you doing! It’s embarrassing! It’s embarrassing! Put me down!!”
“It’s fine. Because I’m Nene-sama’s horse! Use me as you like!”
Ignoring me who was struggling, Flan happily ran toward main road.
[The Brave Side]
At that time, the brave party was,
“Do you know how much you haven’t pay yet!?” “Return the money!” “I don’t care even if you are The King’s favorite or what! it’s impossible!” “Get out!”
They ruined them self because uncontrolled splurging and kicked out from the town.
For the brave’s womanizing, the warrior’s big eating, and the priestess’ shopping. With the brave’s authority it should be free though, but when the amount soared to the sky, the citizen grew impatient.
“Damn! Because the Demon King’s fault the monsters appeared, I thought that city will immediately attacked and we could get a lot of easy money!”
They were on their way to Carpet city when the brave complaining.
“Ara~ Aren’t you mistaken with ‘thanks to Demon King’? Because we can suck sweet nectar when there are a lot of monsters you know.”
The priestess hug piled clothes and bags she took from the inn, stubbornly looked at the town.
“To oppose the braves, what an insolent people they are. Should I make them half dead?”
The warrior was ringing his giant arm’s joint.
The braves still didn’t know.
Their glorious destiny right now was starting to loudly crumble.
By the hand of necromancer girl who cross the time for her revenge.
