Instant Death / Instant Death Vol 2 Chapter 2
It’s a zone composed of intricate cliffs and valleys, centered on the Galera River that meanders and branches.
The reddish rocky skin from everywhere has been exposed, and you can see the numerous overlapping strata there.
Because of its harsh environment, there are few who visit this place.
It was a zone that wasn’t noticed until the route connecting the Kingdom and Hanabusa opened.
Even now, only a few trains pass through it, so its full appearence isn’t known.
In the past, it seemed there was a nation whose root was this region, as there is something that seems to be a path for its remnant.
The minimum maintenance was done at the time of laying the railroad, so Ryouta, the lord of Hanabusa, had told Yogiri and others that it was possible to go to the Kingdom through the canyon.
“It’s a dead-end…..” (Tomochika)
A couple of times, Tomochika sighed in the driver’s seat of the armored car.
The road on the edge was cut off.
It seems the way was right because there were remnants of a bridge, but that didn’t provide any comfort.
“Hey. I guess we have to go to the Kingdom?” (Yogiri)
“Now!? Even if that question is serious, couldn’t you have told me before departure!” (Tomochika)
When Yogiri, who was bored with the situation, complained, Tomochika reciprocated with a keen taste.
“It might be better to reorganize the situation once. Probably it isn’t the purpose to pass through here?” (Yogiri)
“That’s right. Ryouta-san was saying that it wouldn’t be problematic!” (Tomochika)
“I haven’t used the road since the railroad. You don’t know our current situation well?” (Yogiri)
The railroad was laid in this area long ago.
He didn’t understand whether he could use the road that was used at that time.
“Our goal is to return to Japan, and for that we need to come into contact with the sages. It was that it seemed to hurt to act with your classmates quickly, but have you come to the lady from the sages?” (Yogiri)
“Huh? Was it good to have been as nonchalant in the city as you were?” (Tomochika)
“‘Is it even a suggestion?’, I thought that, but I don’t even know what they think. You can barely even talk if you came to be suddenly attacked.” (Yogiri)
And, the opponent will surely die if it fights back.
It wouldn’t be a good idea to wait to be attacked.
“Besides, those guys aren’t thinking about the people in the town, are they? I’m fine, but it’s disgusting to you Dannoura-san, isn’t it?” (Yogiri)
“That’s right…….” (Tomochika)
He wondered if she remembered the disaster of the city.
Tomochika had a depressed look.
“Well, I think that is Shion is a sage at that point we can still talk. We are supposed to be sage candidates being called by her.” (Yogiri)
It was the woman called Shion who had brought Yogiri and others to this world, and she told Yogiri and others to become sages.
In order to become a sage we needed to clear her mission, so we can meet in the process.
At that time, we might be able to get information on how to return to our original world.
The plan of Yogiri and others was only to that degree.
Of course, Yogiri and other didn’t spend all their effort on this plan.
It is more likely you can also talk with other sages.
That’s about it.
If you couldn’t listen to Shion, you would need to consider another approach.
『I have been looking ahead, but even if I can go ahead,
it’s a dead-end.』(Mokomoko)
Saying that was Tomochika’s guardian spirit, it was Mokomoko Dannoura.
Because she had a spirit body, she could move without being influenced by the terrain.
She was out for reconnaissance, but the result wasn’t pleasant.
“I feel we won’t get through as is…..Oh! Hey! There is definitely a way to get to the Kingdom!” (Tomochika)
“Well, perhaps do you mean running on the rails? It’s packed when the train arrives.” (Yogiri)
It was the bridge that Tomochika, who was known to think of terrible things, was looking at.
“Ugh……but, there is no sign of it running at the moment! If the town did such a thing, the train isn’t coming yet?” (Tomochika)
“I see. So, if by any chance it’s running, I will kill the train to protect us. I don’t know what the result will be, but it probably won’t be very funny.” (Yogiri)
“I understand! Let’s just turn back and search for another way!” (Tomochika)
Tomochika backs up the armored car slowly.
However, the sound of a thump immediately came, and the car stopped moving.
It hit something.
Nothing was reflected in the side mirror, and if there had been obstacles there in the first place, it wouldn’t have been possible to get to that point.
“I don’t think there is anything.” (Tomochika)
Tomochika wondered aloud, opened the door and looked at the back.
Tomochika soon returned and closed the door in a hurry.
“No, there was something! It was frustrating! It’s like a tail!” (Tomochika)
“What is it?” (Yogiri)
Yogiri also opens the door and looks behind.
A huge face had been directed to here.
It was a creature that had facial features in-between a reptile’s and a bird’s.
The eyes stared straight at Yogiri.
“It’s a dragon. The same guy who was hitting the bus. I wonder if you like cars after all?” (Yogiri)
“I’ve already heard the story of its special habit! Anyways, do it!” (Tomochika)
“No, how about this. If this is the dragon’s nest, we are stepping into it which would be bad for us. To kill it unilaterally――” (Yogiri)
The armored car swayed greatly all at once.
The dragon had hit it around.
Armored cars have defensive power, but around here is the cliffs.
If it repeated such a thing, it would be easily dropped down to the bottom of the cliff.
“It’s not the time to be saying such a thing!” (Tomochika)
“Well, it can’t be helped.” (Yogiri)
Yogiri killed the dragon.
However, because the corpse remains in the spot, the situation won’t change from now.
While Yogiri thought about how that was, a roar echoed in the canyon.
Whether it was a sign of something coming or not, something came flying right away.
It’s a dragon.
It was reddish with rocky skin, it seemed to be the same as the dragon he had just killed a while ago.
“Well, something has come!” (Tomochika)
While watching, the dragons continued to increase, and it became crowded in the sky by the cliff side.
Their mouths are opened wide, and the mouths are filled with flames.
They would blow out the flame breath from there.
The Dragons were in a battle situation.
“It feels completely awake……well, it isn’t an opponent you can talk to.” (Yogiri)
Yogiri released his power.
The dragons fell down to the bottom of the valley without blowing out their flames.
“Oh, something that even Insecticide CM can be used for…….” (Tomochika)
The huge creatures with a length of about 20 meters were crashing all at once.
It’s a spectacular sight.
And, the canyon then regained silence as if nothing had happened.
“I don’t want to think about what has happened at the bottom of the valley……” (Tomochika)
“But, that doesn’t change the fact we can no longer move from here.” (Yogiri)
“I have to move the dragon behind us and move it.” (Tomochika)
『What. Then use your weapons. Shred it down and throw it away, or drop it to the bottom of the cliff using its leverage!』(Mokomoko)
Tomochika is camouflaging a weapon that she got from an Aggressor as part of her clothing.
The weapon could freely deform, so it was possible to use it as a sharp blade or a strong structural material.
Tomochika and Yogiri got out of the car.
They checked the corpse of the dragon.
If she expanded the weapon between the cliff and the dead body, it seemed to blow away.
“Huh? Isn’t it possible to make bridges with this?” (Tomochika)
『So, even if I could go ahead, I said that. The area ahead has collapsed for a considerable length. There is no size big enough to support it as expected.』(Mokomoko)
“Well, there may be places we can go with this weapon……It came again from somewhere!” (Tomochika)
Something comes from the sky.
It was a wyvern type dragon as before, he quickly understood that a clear distinction was found between him and the other dragons.
“It seems like the Golden Thunder Dragon has come!” (Tomochika)
The dragon was shining golden.
Its appearence which was wearing lightning also seems to even exude divinity.
