Chapter 5 – A month later

Translator: “Drey”

The sun touched the ocean and the sky turns red .

While looking aimlessly at such a fantastic sight, I breathed out while soaked up in the swimming pool . The warm water penetrates my body while feeling the cool breeze . I feel good .

The place where I’m currently at now, which was shown by the camera earlier, was indeed a heated swimming pool . There are two buildings, one is where I can take a shower . The second is the heated swimming pool . I think it’s way more relaxing in the heated swimming pool rather than the bathroom . So, I clean up my body here because things like shampoos and body soap are also always in stock .

While I’m looking at the sunset, a flock of small wyverns entered my sight . According to the data, apparently a small wyvern of less than 10 years old will act in a group that reaches in dozens and will carry out a hunt with their strength of number .

Because they have a wingspan spreading to more that 2 meters even though their bodies are small, they are big like an idiot if you look at them with the same feeling as a bird .

I was flustered the first time I saw small dragons approaching in several flocks but recently I got to see it frequently so I came to regain my composure .

The flock of wyverns are rapidly getting closer to my direction, but I’m just looking at it while I am submerged in the pool .

Their distance is getting closer .

However, the moment when the flock of wyverns reaches the flying island, they were bounced off by the collision on an invisible wall .

On the space where there should be nothing, a ripples of white lines spread and cover the sky in faintly .

It’s a defensive barrier .

I tried checking it up, but it seems to be a barrier that can withstand about one blast of a highest rank dragon breath . In other words, most attacks can be prevented just by the barrier .

I thought that it’s going to be bad if a flock of large dragons attacks, but it didn’t even receive a crack from the likes of young wyverns with Danger Level C and below .

Looking at some collided wyverns that were too exhausted while falling down to the ocean, I breathe a sigh .

「……I’m bored」

To be honest, I got tired exploring the castle in 2 weeks . I also got tired of reading mangas, playing games or lazing around in a week .

「…… or more like, I’m lonely . 」

Reflexively, I grumble in whisper tone .

It isn’t because I’m looking at the sunset that I’m becoming sentimental . It’s a word that truly overflowed from the bottom of my heart .

Leaving the pool and putting on a bathrobe, I return to the castle . It’s an extremely deprived appearance, but no one is here after all .

I went up to the fifth floor and touched on the screen panel of touch-display . I choose the words of Remote Reconnaissance from among the entries .

Only the ocean is shown on the four directions of the screen and the scenery is changing at a speed as if being washed away .

I’m searching the surroundings using this feature regularly for these past 3 weeks, but it didn’t reached to a land at all .

The flying island itself, where the Heavenly castle is, able to adjust its speed and it will speed up to 100 kilometers per hour at the maximum .

It is far slower than the likes of airplanes, but it’s still 100 kilometers per hour . It’s a speed which is likely to get over in two days if it fly through Japan .

At the beginning, it can’t be helped because I didn’t know how to change the speed, but even so I changed it to 100 kilometers per hour and it was a week since then . It’s calculated as 2,400 kilometers in one day if it is flying for 24 hours a day .

Although it is continuing to advance in one direction for nearly 17 thousand kilometers in a week, why can’t I see a land?

No way, it isn’t a world where there is only an ocean, right?

「It’s possible…… that Angel was really like a natural airhead . 」

I kept gazing at the screen as I was about to be crushed by anxiety .

And, I narrow my eyes at something that could be seen faintly inside of the screen .

When I try looking closely at the faint on the horizon, that something that came into my view looks like a land .


The chair falls by the force when I stand up and reflexively raised a strange voice .

Inside the screen, the land gradually becomes bigger and the shadow resembling a mountain also becoming clearer .

There’s no doubt . It’s something real . A real earth is being showed .

「I beg you! Don’t make it an uninhabited island! It’s fine even if there’s a dirty old man so please!」

I press my hands together while speaking such stupid things .

What would I do if it is a primitive man saying ‘UhhoUhho’? Such thoughts crossed my mind, but I decided not to pay attention to it .

After a short while, the image became clear to the point that I could finally see the situation on the ground .

It appears that, the sea side is like a steep cliff that has been hollowed out . There seems to be a considerably height difference from the sea level .

I see mountain peaks surrounding the area, so currently I can’t see any city .

Or more like, all I can see is nothing but cliffs, forests and mountains .

「I can’t also see a ship」

I stare enough to open a hole on the screen while murmuring such monologue .

My monologue increased since I grew up living alone, but for these last three weeks it came to the point that I always utter a monologue .

This is a harmful effect of loneliness .

And, while I’m thinking such trivial things, I found something above the cliff .

As I am gradually approaching it, I found out that it is a man-made object .

It’s a rectangular box shape . It looks like there’s a big loop attached on the side .

Ah, it has a horse .

「It’s a carriage!」

I become delighted while jumping up . It’s a discovery of civilization . I will write this in my diary .

As I become almost too excited, I calm myself first and approached the screen in order to observe the carriage .

Fumu Fumu, if the horse is not small, then that carriage is quite big . The carriage itself is a bit plain, but it appears to be rather solidly built .

And, I saw the horse lying down and rolling over in the screen . It’s very difficult to judge because the image is diagonal from above .

「Do horses lie down similar to a dog?」

As expected it’s not a horse . Maybe it’s a horse-like creature of this world .

Soon after, a horse came running from the forest . A person is riding the horse .

「Oh! He’s wearing armor! So cool!」

I raise my voice while clapping my hands towards the screen . There are three horses at the other side of the carriage and there are figures of three knights mounted on it . It’s a splendid armor shining in silver . There are also swords being held in their hands .

It’s a scene similar to a movie .

When I’m observing with a feeling like I’m watching an interesting show, a person came jumping out from the side of the carriage this time .

I guess she’s a woman, because her plain light brown skirt is fluttering . Shaking her long red hair as if to regain her composure, the woman proceeds to run towards the edge of the cliff .

It’s a scene often found especially in movies . Beautiful woman running on the beach . Simply picturesque .

「That’s happening over the cliff, though . 」

I smile wryly while saying that and stared at it with my arms folded .

However, I am concerned about the woman who is seriously running for her life .

「I guess it’s ‘that’ . It was the time I was running away when I encountered an exhibitionist at the beginning of spring . There’s no mistake」

In that case, are those knights a pervert?

While I’m thinking such stupid thoughts, the woman who finally reached to the edge of the cliff turned around . The knights who set their swords has descended from the horse and proceeds to walk slowly towards the lady .

「…… Oya?」

I tilted my head to the different development with my guess and stared at the screen . The camera is already quite close to the land and I can feel the tense atmosphere building up .

This composition is a situation I saw somewhere .

「This, isn’t this a Tuesday Suspense!」

Tuesday Suspense Theater……! The culprit is always cornered to the cliff and will either live or die, it’s a simple mystery .  1

And, this scene is exactly just like on that Tuesday Suspense .

「The first villager is going to die!」

I hurriedly return to the front of touch-display screen .
