“Is this Santa Mysia?”
One day after Nina left Snowden.
Several members of the Magic Division, including Nina, arrived at the snow-lit town of Santa Mysia.
She had arrived earlier than expected, having ridden her horse to the end of its useful life, but Nina was struck by the strange appearance of the town.
“Captain, what the hell is this….”
The division members following behind also look at her with anxious expressions.
This town was the center of the battle.
She was imagining a picture of Lisbet’s army and Yuresh’s army clashing with each other. ……
“Captain, this place is like ……”
Nina utters the rest of the Divisional Officer’s words with her own mouth.
Yes, Santa Mysia is far too quiet.
The building is still clean and there is no sign of the war.
It was just like that, only the people were gone from the town.
“Let’s go for a little stroll.”
Nina told the division members, and decided to have them scatter in pairs to check out the town.
“First squad, west side. We didn’t find anyone.”
“Second squad, also on the south side.”
“Third squad, same on the east side.”
People get their own reports and hold their heads up.
Squad 4, the north side, which she was in charge of.
No harvest here either.
We searched for an hour and couldn’t find a single person.
What the hell is going on? What in the world has happened to this town?
The impatient voices of the divisional officers echoed in the heady confusion.
When she looked in the direction that the division member was pointing to see what was going on, she saw that the sky had turned bright red.
“This direction is ……Snowden!”
Nina can’t believe her eyes.
But the color of that sky. No doubt, Snowden is on the warpath.
Nina stood there, stunned, with her eyes wide.
She must not have crossed paths with Lisbet’s army before coming to Santa Mysia from Snowden.
Then why is Capital burning now?
What the hell is going on? What the hell happened to Santa Mysia? What’s going on with Snowden?
I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know.
Suddenly, the vice captain’s smile crosses her mind.
And then, when she recovered himself, she threw her voice to the members of the division.
“Everyone to Snowden immediately!”
「「「「「「 Yes! 」」」」」」
The division members, who were as stunned as Nina, responded to her words as if it were a conditioned reflex.
No matter how fast you ride, it’ll take half a day to get to Snowden.
And moreover, these horses were forced to do it when they just came to Santa Mysia.
Some of the horses have already expired, and the division men, who have lost their horses, are on their way to Snowden on their own.
“Just get here.”
When Nina also checked the condition of her own horse, she decided to ride it off and run on her own.
“The thread of lightning, weave together to become shoes.[Moved enhancements]!”
Nina grants intermediate magic to her own physique.
She’s doesn’t know how much longer she can hold out with this. But for now, she must return to the royal capital as soon as possible.
Nina checked her body, which was now as light as a feather, and kicked the ground forcefully with her foot.
Towards the direction of the red-burning sky.
Severe pain runs many times.
Each time, she gave first aid using the least consuming healing technique.
If it is a lower level magic, it consumes very little magic power. If she uses it a few times, she won’t run out of magic power before she reaches Snowden.
Nina continues to run like a raging dog towards Snowden.
She noticed that there was no one around.
Alone, Nina was running.
Still, she doesn’t stop.
While I’m doing this, Snowden, the people–
Nina stood there, stunned.
She thought she was prepared for this. ……
Nina could only stand there as Snowden’s city was engulfed in fire before her eyes.
Why did I let this happen? Where did I go wrong?
All these thoughts run through her head, and she can’t take the next step.
The cityscape that just burns and disappears is burned into Nina’s eyes.
Suddenly, she heard a familiar voice from somewhere.
Nina comes back to herself at the sound of his voice.
Nina turned her head in the direction of the voice and saw Monica running towards her.
Thank God, you’re alive.
Nina patted her chest in relief.
“Nina-sama, I’m so glad you’re safe.”
Haa~ ha~, Monica says breathlessly as she does so.
“That’s my line. What really happened?”
Nina asked her as she held Monica’s shoulders, which were about to collapse.
“There was an ambush lurking. Not long after Nina-sama left Capital, we were taken by surprise.”
“Such as …….”
If that’s true, then it makes sense that there were no people in Santa Mysia.
But is there such a thing as bad timing?
It’s as if the whole thing was conspired …….
“What’s the matter, captain?”
Monica looks into Nina’s face as she speaks.
Nina asked Monica, not looking away from her.
“Monica. Where’s the rest of the division?”
There are only a few members of the Magic Division that she have taken with her.
The most of them must have stayed Capital.
“They’re at Royal Castle.”
“All right. I’ll be right there.”
Nina says this to Monica and at the same time starts running towards the royal castle.
Monica responded shortly and followed after Nina.
White Ice Blue Hall.
The majestic royal castle, as it was called, was now enveloped in red flames and black smoke.
“Father ……, Mother!”
A cold sweat broke out on Nina’s forehead.
She has a bad feeling about this.
Her gut was telling her that.
Pass through the gates of the Royal Castle and through the courtyard.
In the middle of this, Nina saw something in the side of her eyes and stopped.
A pile of people folded up.
I’ve seen that outfit before.
“Uniforms of the Magisterium……”
Nina runs over to the pile and checks it out up close.
“Aldo, Ervens, Siera ……”
Every one of them was a face that Nina knew.
The only difference is that every one of them is a silent corpse.
That Nina would never be able to hear their voices or see their smiling faces again.
“Terrible …… who did this.”
It’s obvious. It’s Lisbet’s ambush.
Anger, hatred, rises up from the depths of her heart.
Her nails dug into the palm of her hand and blood seeped through.
She can’t allow it.
She has never felt such anger before, such a desire to burn her enemies, all of them, to the ground.
The fighting spirit, which is hotter than the magma that blazes up, soon fizzled out with a single impact.
The shocking heat she received in her back.
It reaches inside her body and she feels as if her internal organs are being burned.
“Who is …… doing this?”
Nina turns back in the direction of the voice.
“I’ll tell you the answer.”
Then her eyes widened.
“It’s me. Nina-sama.”
There is Monica with a wicked smile on her face.
A few balls of flame flickered around her.
