NEW TL 80 SS
【The next emperor’s perspective: Day 80】
For the sake of curing Diana from the "Creciendo Disease" eating into her, I searched for a remedy using everything I could. She was the person I was arranged to marry with, my fiance and my loved one, the crown princess of the Sternbelt Kingdom. After seaching continuously, I finally learned of the existence of a remedy through a【Divine Revelation】from the【Demigod of Healing】.
I tried again and again to negotiate with the elves, who had inherited the technique to purify the remedy, to trade it for large sums of money.
However, despite my propositions, the elves were bound by their ancient laws and couldn’t hand over the remedy, so I led troops to the forest in order to take it by force.
It wasn’t supposed to drag on for so long, but the elves’ resistance was more violent than expected, and the casualties we received were not to be sneezed at.
The forest was filled with traps which decreased our marching speed, the monsters that frequently appeared were a burden, the hidden elves constantly shot arrows at us from the trees' shadows and the dark night was troublesome.
Even when they ran, we couldn't even give chase since this was thier forest which they knew much better than us. There were also some units that I couldn’t contact so I assumed that they had been wiped out.
However, I just couldn't believe that all these casualties were caused by the elves.
My intuition led me to sense that there was a troublesome existence besides the elves.
I couldn’t tell exactly what kind of existence I was feeling. I could only sense that it was something similar to the 【Eight Heroic Armored Knights Brigade】, one of the strongest forces that the empire boasted about.
--And my intuition was correct.
There was a surprise attack from the elves on the headquarters, where I was currently stationed. Shrouded by the dark of night, they came from the side with the slave troops and advanced while freeing the slaves.
While I was surprised that they came so close without me noticing their presence, I was glad that I was able to detect them thanks to the Chimera going on rampage. What made it even better was that the rampaging Chimera was killing and wounding the enemy and the freed mixed-breed slaves.
I could clearly see the situation, even from afar. The Chimera was a synthetic monster, created by combining many techniques the Empire could boast of. There were still problems, such as gathering the raw materials, so increasing the production wasn’t possible, but they had enough concealed strength to play an active role in wars against other countries in the near future.
However, even though the Chimera, with a larger frame than an armored War Elephant, the limbs of a Emperor Tiger, the venomous fangs of a Many-headed Snake, and the pincers of a Blue Shelled Crab, possessed a raw power that easily surpassed that of any common monsters.
It was killed off way too quickly.
In the distance, although I couldn’t confirm the appearance of the enemy since the sun hadn’t risen yet, the Chimera had definitely been finished off. I was dumbfounded at the sight, but the enemy’s attack was so fierce that I was only taken aback for a moment.
I was able to confirm the appearance of Elves, Ogres, Half Lords, and such among the attacking army of the black colored Skeletons.
As I thought, the enemy was not just Elves.
It was likely that the Ogres, who lived in this forest, had conspired with the elves and their mixed army was now on a violent rampage.
The damage in the area around an Ogre subspecies was especially great, and one after another, our elites were being defeated.
While looking at the situation from afar, I relayed orders to my subordinates and devoted myself to commanding them.
This was because the sparks from the battle hadn’t reached here yet due to the distance. That was probably also the reason why I had let my guard down.
I trembled at the enemy, who had approached my back without my associates around me noticing its presence.
If it wanted to kill me, I could’ve been killed.
However, the enemy whispered something into my ears and put a small bottle of liquid into my breast pocket.
It said that the remedy was inside of it.
The condition for receiving it was for us to retreat from the forest. That was the only condition.
And I accepted that condition. It was regrettable to not obtain the profit we could’ve gotten from the Elves, but when the enemy was gripping your life, there was no choice but to man up and fall back.
I had lost to the elves ... no, to this unknown enemy.
It was an existence that could sneak into enemy headquarters without being noticed. Although it could’ve easily robbed me of my life, it offered me an exchange.
If the enemy wasn’t aware that I was the emperor, I would be dead.
Grinding my teeth in frustation at how easily my new arch enemy got one over on me, I vowed to kill this unidentified fiend with my own hands. Withholding my anger for another time, I ordered a retreat even though it almost hurt to do so.
If this remedy turned out to be a fake, I would immedietly come back for revenge and slaughter the enemy even if my body were to crumble to dust.
It was a bitter experience to leave without crushing my enemy, but I vowed to make the Empire stronger. Since I already completed my objective, I left the forest to increase the Empire's might, and also, my own.
