Ovallord

Part 3


Spring, a time where birds chirped, flower bloomed and the green grass carpeted the land. In contrast to the cold and dire winter just months ago, this scene was nothing short of heavenly. A season of hope, a time for brave warriors to march forth and secure a better future.


A hundred men in full battle gear formed up on the field, wearing steel helmets, armed with spears, blades and shields. In front of them was a young man standing on a slightly elevated plateau, who is addressing the soldiers passionately. Similar to the warriors, he was decked in gears of war, but he was wearing full plate armour in brilliant white, differentiating him from the crowd.


He spoke with the heavy slur of the boondocks, evidence of his humble origins. It might be a ploy to relate the men he was addressing, but it sounded strange and condescending for some reason. This man named Ascent, champion of the princess, was not a good public speaker.


Frandzone, Ascent’s deputy for this campaign frown at this awful display, and muttered under his breath:


“All I can hear is muh talent, muh princess, muh muh muh…”


The princess who was reviewing the speech from a short distance away pretended not to hear and continued smiling.


I will kill him.


I will kill that other soldier too.


I will kill anyone who looks down on Ascent-kun.


Ah, Ascent-kun is so cute. I want to tie him up and lick him all over. Hehehe.


As the speech drone on, it was evident that Ascent was losing his audience. Only duty and discipline kept the men from walking away, this was not the their first commander that tortured them with boring speeches, nor will he be the last.


“It is muh duty to protect this country, and I vow to see this done. No lie! I swear this on my honour, to do this for muh princess, heaven strike me down if I lie! Men, say it with me! Fight for muh princess!”


And the men echoed as Ascent commanded, placing emphasis on the word ‘muh’ a little too heavily.


Suddenly, Ascent was sent flying to his left at incredible speed.


He was in the midst of shouting his rallying cry, but the sudden event turned this into his death throes as his shout of ‘mmmuuuuhhhhh’ faded away.


In his place was a monstrosity of steel and iron, which appeared with a screech. The head of the monster was blue and blockish, with steel grates where its maw should be and large reflective eyes of glass to its front and its sides. Tattoed onto the blue background was red flames that trails away from the front. Smoke sprouted out from its six elongated ears coming out from the top of its head, three on each side.


There was no sign of any limbs, as the monster jerked to a stop. Behind the head was a box like metallic body as large as a house. It was silver in colour with hints of blue on the side. Black spherical shapes propped out the limbless monster, bearing its weight, which must be incredible.


Silence followed the sudden entrance of the monster, shock and discipline holding the soldiers in place.


And the princess screamed and collapsed.


Like a puppet with its string cut.


Like a puppet.


With its string.

Cut.

    1. Most likely no since volume 8 has 2 chapters only (and probably each chapter are rly longer than usual) instead of the usual 4-5 chapters per volume. But it would be nice if they could like translate first half of chapter 1 then nxt week is the 2nd half.

  17. Are the "spherical" shapes supposed to be tires? If that is indeed the case, it should be "circular".
