Chapter 4 (v2)
With my three pairs of wings, I moved at a speed that can be considered top class even among the seven guardians.
By using a single pair of wings, I can fly at 100km/h and 200km/h if I use two pairs. If I use all three, I can fly at the speed of sound.
For my divine body, the wall of air (created by traveling at the speed of sound) meant nothing. I continued to fly while tearing through the clouds.
From the corners of my eyes, I noticed that the power coming from the sonic boom was even able to mince a griffon flying nearby.
Thus, when I fly, I have to be careful to avoid causing too much damage. Even so, I arrived in a matter of minutes.
The monsters in the nearby area ran like frightened children when they saw me. Even the Frost Dragon and Ice Golem, considered as boss-level monsters by the humans, cannot help but ran away at full speed. Pathetic.
However, it was expected. In front of me, a guardian, the correct answer is to escape.
So, this is the Snow Troll camp? I can see white hair yeti-like creatures looking up at me. They stared with hostility.
Don’t the Trolls worry that I might wipe them out if they offend me? Maybe they thought they have a chance due to sheer numbers. They also seemed to value their mana source very highly as they needed the mana to evolve.
“Geez… What a troublesome thing.”
A group of Snow Trolls were rushing to attack me. All they had was a higher than normal mana density. Killing them was not even worth the effort.
“For now, just cool you head.”
I flapped my wings and blew away the entire flock of Snow Trolls. They flew into the lake and sank into the icy water. Maybe some of them will die swimming in such low temperature but at least it reduced their numbers.
Okay then, no more pesky bugs. Time to get to work.
With my divine eyes, I can easily see through the snow and the ground. Tracing the mana leakage downwards, I found a torrent of such leakage caused by a jam. The mana stream was also jammed at multiple places, and was completely clogged at the Snow Troll encampment. The Snow Trolls built a graveyard in the shape of a pyramid that, purely by luck, was located on top of the mana stream, causing a leakage of high purity mana.
Anyways, let’s finish the job. I used exploration magic to check if there were any other leakages within a 100 km radius.
Hmm… There were several areas that concerned me. Whatever. I’ll just change the terrain in order to create a new mana passage, then clean the clogged one.
(Tl note: it seemed the author think of it as fixing a clogged toilet lol)
I pierced the ground with my mana and used magic to create a layer that will stop future mana leakages from this place.
By increasing the amount of mana I use, my mana would be able to reach the mana stream and the clogged section.
Just like flushing a toilet, I made the mana stream start flowing, and the clog disappeared.
Now that the mana stream had been fixed, I filled the crack so that the Snow Trolls can use it as a garbage dump again.
“Ah… Good work me… I feel as if I almost died from overworking”
I needed a nap.
I flew quickly above the clouds, taking only mere minutes before I arrived back at my lair.
“Guardian-sama, welcome back. Have you settled it?” I am greeted by Runamiria, gracefully bowing at a 45-degree angle.
“Yes. The bones discarded by a group of Snow Trolls are the cause. I’ve cleaned it, so it will no longer be a problem.”
“Thank you for your hard work”
After reporting to Runamiria, I felt tired and wanted to take a nap – a 20-year long nap.
I went to my bed, made with the image of an RPG boss in mind. It was actualiy a throne, but it wasn't so high that lying down would be uncomfortable.
“Now, guardian-sama. Although you have just completed a task, another issue has appeared”
“What? So suddenly? I was going to take a nap.” I asked her lazily.
“Guardian-sama. Just now, a lot of mana has begun to leak throughout the Assurado continent. It will result in multiple cases of mana eruptions soon.”
“Eh? How come?”
“There is an abnormal acceleration of the mana streams. It is being pushed out of the continent and thus small cracks had appeared. It can’t hold out for much longer.”
“Let’s reconsider. I just finished solving a mana problem. There’s got to be some time to sleep right?”
“Guardian-sama, it seems we need you again.”
Hahaha… What is Runamiria saying? It’s naptime.
“By the way, abnormal occurrences of monsters have been sighted. Even plants are mutating. We need to take care of it now.”
That day, on the Assurado Continent, mana leakages occurred everywhere. There was even an extremely loud unknown roar heard all over the continent. The humans, out of fear, cowered in their homes and prayed to the God they believed in.
TL: Okay.. If you didn’t read the original text you may not get the pun the author put inside.
Under the surface, a stream of mana flow exists. It comes out to earth from a tunnel. If by chance it is clogged, it may explode later on because the mana that was supposedly coming out, had been blocked.
Think of it as a hose. If it is blocked, the accumulated water will exert a bigger pressure.
This time, the tunnel of mana was blocked by the Snow Trolls. The tunnel was used as a garbage dumpster. And our sloth dragon used an easy way to deal with it.
He blocked the tunnel and clogged down the mana.
In fact the pressure was causing the other tunnels to take tremendous pressure, on the brink of eruption.
Because the tunnel was all connected to the same mana stream.
The first one as going to erupt because it was clogged, the second problem was because of the mana's too much pressure. Think of a small hose being used on a fire department hydrant. The pressure is bigger than the hose could handle.
To tell the truth..
The second problem is caused by our MC.. And it was worst because it happened all over the continent lol..
He thought he had done a good job and wanted to sleep while in fact he created more trouble for himself.. Poor MC.. Seems like you couldn’t sleep just yet.
