Knowing I was troubled over the issue of lack of military forces, Teacher seems to have called out Fernel and Mereen-senpai.
“Oh, senpai, well if you insist. Then, I will lend my troops for a little while.”
“What are you grinning for. Is it fine with Tuban’s protection?”
“There are Skeleton soldiers… though I can’t make them move…”
“Fine, I will send a spirit technique user from the Vampires to Fer. Leave the command and control of Skeleton soldiers to them. In exchange, please lend me some Jinba soldiers.”
“Uwaa, so shrewd!”
An exchange like that happened, and the Fernel led Jinba troops reshuffled five hundred soldiers each.
Cavalry, finally the cavalry is coming!
“This is Seychez...”
The one who came to North gate leading five hundred Jinba Soldiers was a robust young man of Jinba race.
On his finely sculpted face, a deep wrinkle is carved between the eyebrows.
Why is he angry?
“I am not… angry… even though I may look like this, it’s my laughing face….”
Wishy-washily talking , Seychez is making a displeased face.
Since I could not be sure that he really is laughing, I requested him.
“Make a serious face.”
Seychez nodded, and made a displeased face.
I don’t understand.
“Then, this time, angry face”
Seychez nodded, and made a displeased face.
Isn’t it the same.
“It’s different… really different…”
A difficult to deal guy came...
According to what Fernel said, this guy is respected by everyone in the Jinba race. Although there are considerable differences, it seems he’s second strongest after Fernel.
Oi, didn’t you omit a lot in between just now?
Just looking at the sharp guess about what I was thinking, he doesn’t seem like a normal taciturn guy.
Be that as it may, still I don’t know how to deal with him.
Then Seychez got half naked, and beckoned me.
“A soldier’s… salutation. Once we fight, you will know….”
Again. Because the Jinba race are also a Demon race, at the end physical strength says everything.
“If you can hold me down on the ground… you win… there is no other way to decide…”
“Seems interesting. Let me be the opponent.”
If I back down here, then the Werewolves and Jinbas, both will make light of me. This is a fight I can’t escape from.
“Hey, the Commander is going to contest with the Jinba race!”
Hey, stop, stop.
In the end, a lot of Werewolves also gathered, and being watched by both the troops, it was decided that I and Seychez would do the wrestling.
Looking at Seychez again, he has a good expression. He has an appearance of a veteran soldier.
He looks sufficiently self-confident for this scuffle. If I grapple amateurishly, it may drag on.
But I am an Aide who reports directly to Demon King-sama.
I cannot be allowed to have an unsightly fight with an obviously low-ranked Seychez.
I will finish it in a flash.
“Then here I come.”
When I transformed, I activated the magic I already prepared to cast.
It’s an acceleration magic that rapidly enhances the reaction speed of brain and sensory organs. With this I can react even to the small movements of opponent.
Grabbing the momentous gap, I go around Seychez’s back.
Because the bottom half of Jinba race is that of a horse, they are not good at turning around. Also they have a large blindspot.
That’s why they hate it the most if someone goes behind their back.
“.... Do not take me lightly.”
Seychez’s hind legs kicked aiming at me with a speed of lightning. It’s not a reflexive kick like a wild horse.
It’s the kick of a well trained master.
But I was waiting for this.
With my magically strengthened kinetic vision, I can predict the trajectory of the hooves. Since the aim of the kick is incomparably precise, on the contrary predicting is not difficult.
Going underneath it, I started sliding. The target is the front legs.
There was a positive feeling.
Remaining toppled over, Seychez was dumbfounded for a while. The werewolves praise me with loud shouts.
Placing my hand on that toppled over horse-body, I asked just to be sure.
“I held down. Is this fine?”
“Umm… it’s Vaito-dono’s win…”
Nodding with a serious face, Seychez nimbly stood up. While falling down, he took proper defense measures, so he does not seem injured in his legs or body.
From the Jinba troops also, applauses ensued praising me and Seychez.
“Were you expecting… my kick…?”
“As a warrior who is entrusted with troops from Fernel, would definitely not be unprepared for the weakness. I thought you would definitely kick since you don’t have any weapon.”
“But, to kick with a horse body, you have balance only on your front legs. I aimed there.”
Seychez is nodding many times.
“On top of acknowledging me as a first class soldier, and then seeing through after inviting my attack. As expected of the brave warrior praised by the Demon army.”
“You, suddenly sound eloquent.”
When I pointed it out, Seychez scratched his head embarrassingly.
“Sorry, when it comes to fighting…. I become a fast-talker…..”
Saying so, he extended his hand.
“We will…. Obey Vaito…. Please take care of us.”
“Ah, same here.”
I firmly grasped back that hand.
At that moment, Technical Officer Kurtz came out from castle gate in a hurry.
“Vaito-dono, a serious matter! Please return immediately!”
Then adjusting his tone, so that the humans can’t hear, Kurtz answered.
“It’s a Hero. In the northern war front, a Human Hero has appeared.”
