Day 379

The number of exciting special water areas began to decrease, and it feels like when sailing somewhere close to land.

Perhaps the new continent is close.

So I thought to ask the Grand Admiral, and it seems that it is rather close to him as well.

It is impossible for us to arrive today but we can arrive by tomorrow.

I heard that it is impossible to reach another continent by crossing the ocean in less than a few months, normally.

The reason why we could shorten it by so much, and prove that the Admiral's route was right, was due to the performance of the Ship Ambrasm Parabellum.

Well, if such a story is okay, while today is still set aside for enjoying the elegance of the upper deck pool, I found a shadow that seems to be another fleet of armed ships far away.

At first it was far too away to make out any details, but the fleet is progressing in the same direction and their speed is faster, so the distance shrank as time passed.

They gradually became clearly visible, resolving into a fleet made up of tens of vessels.

Damage is conspicuous on all the hulls. Although there are relatively few scars, most of them are repaired by hand and they are still seemingly floating.

Were they hit by several marine monsters during an extended voyage?

I do not know if there were any sunken or strayed ships, but I could imagine the trouble of the fleet.

When it caught up after a while, with us sailing side by side as it was, the sailors were able to wave their hands with a smile on their faces, and we watched as they knelt and put their hands on their knees while dedicating prayers.

The reactions are different, but they are all cheerful, like everyone is relaxed, as if released from something.

For them it was also a new continent, a little after the voyage of their life.

However, the state of their hull was not good, and in a situation where it was attacked by a group of marine monsters or when it encountered any big crisis, it could become quite the dangerous situation, the fatigue and stress on the mind and body were heavy pressing on the sailors I guess.


If you think that the [Goddess of Dungeons] or the [god of the ship], which are from one pillar of deeply related gods, the connection of the sea to men is just as deeply related, as seen by the sailors we pass, that reaction makes sense.

It seems as though he encountered a guarding force.

For such reasons, the fleet springs up and raises their speed to match our own.

Did they think that they would not be attacked by any brutal oceanic monsters by being near [Ambrasseum · Parabellum], or did they just simply not want to separate.

In any case, although they had to work in parallel for a while due to their past struggles, they still gradually fall behind because the power was too different.

Besides, there were various hot exchanges, but after I took a look at the whole story, I changed my feelings and decided to enjoy the rest of my little vacation.

Yeah, an ogre drinking under the blue sky is good.

 “三百七十九日目”

 チラホラあった特殊海域が少なくなり始め、どこか出航した頃のような感じがする。

 もしかしたら新大陸が近いのかもしれない。


 そう思い黒鯱提督に確認してみると、どうやらかなり近くまで来ているようだ。

 流石に今日中の到着は無理だが、明日には到着できるらしい。


 普通なら数ヵ月単位で大海を越えねば大陸は行き来できない、と聞いていた。

 それがこれほど短縮できたのは、それだけ【アンブラッセム・パラベラム号】の性能が素晴らしかったと言う事と、黒鯱提督の航路選択が正しかったという証明だろう。


 まあそんな話はいいとして、今日も変わらず上層のプールで優雅に鬼酒を楽しんでいると、遥か遠くに存在する武装船舶の船団らしき影を見つけた。

 最初は遠過ぎて良く分からなかったが、船団は同じ方向に進んでいるし、コチラの方が速いので時間が経つにつれて距離が縮まっていった。


 次第にその姿はハッキリと視認できるようになり、それは十数隻ほどの船舶で構築された船団だった。

 全ての船体に損傷が目立つ。損傷は比較的少ない船舶もあるが、その多くはあの手この手で応急処置し、ギリギリ浮いているような状態だ。


 長い長い航海中に、様々な海洋モンスターに襲われたのだろうか。

 沈んだりはぐれたりした武装船舶があったかどうかなどは分からないが、船団の苦労が想像できた。


 しばらくして追いつき、そのまま横並びになった時、船乗り達はコチラに笑みを浮かべて手を振っていたり、手を組み膝をついて祈りを捧げる姿などが確認できた。

 反応はそれぞれだが、皆一様にホッとしたような、何かから解放されたように朗らかだ。


 新大陸が近いだけあって、命がけの航海も後少し。

 しかし船体の状態は良好ではなく、海洋モンスターの群れに襲われたり、大きな時化と遭遇すればかなり危険な状態になりかねない状況で、心身の疲労やストレスは船乗り達に重く圧し掛かっていたのだろう。


 そこに船乗りなど海の男達にとってとても関係の深い神々の一柱である【船舶の神】の【神代ダンジョン】が通ったと考えれば、あの反応も頷ける。

 まるで守り神にでも遭遇したかのようだ。


 そういう理由もあって湧き上がる船団は、何と速度を上げた。

 【アンブラッセム・パラベラム号】の近くなら凶悪な海洋モンスターに襲われないと思ったのか、あるいはただ単純に離れたくなかったのか。

 

 何はともあれ、彼等の努力もあってしばらく並走する事になったのだが、それでも地力が違い過ぎたので、徐々に離れていく。


 他にも色々と暑苦しいやり取りがあり、その一部始終を見学した俺は、気持ちを切り替えて残り少ない休暇を楽しむ事にした。

 うん、青空の下で飲む鬼酒は良いもんだ。
