Watashi wa Teki ni Narimasen! 35.1

Hello, everyone!

“Watashi wa Teki ni Narimasen” is one of the novels I really love. Seeing that the previous translator decided to drop the series and how my other translation projects were finished, I decided to try and pick this series up. I hope that you’re satisfied with my translation quality and speed.

Please don’t hesitate to comment if you notice something that needs editing or correction—or well, just drop some comments to let me know that you’re here, reading and enjoying this novel as much as I do! Some might not know how much motivation that can bring to a translator.

Also, I will try to keep the translation consistent with the previous ones, like the terminologies and the names. However, it’s my habit to leave the Japanese suffixes such as “-san” and sometimes Japanese titles such as “Onee-sama”, etc. For example, Kiara addresses Horace with “Shishou” or “Master”—but for consistency’s sake, I’ll leave that one as “Master”. There might be titles in the future that I’d leave in Japanese (with note, of course), so I’m informing you here in advance.

I’m trying to keep the translation consistent, but there might be several small changes (but their meaning should still be the same), so I hope you don’t mind!

Happy reading and don’t hesitate to comment! Do note that if you’re a first-time commenter, it will take some time before your comment is publicly displayed, but don’t let it hold you back in commenting! I’ll be very happy to read your comments~ ^^

 

 

 

 

Chapter 35

The Siege War in Everal Frontier 1

 

 

Part 1/2

 

“Why… why?!”

I couldn’t comprehend it.

 

This morning, it was stated in the scout’s report that the enemy’s figure still couldn’t be seen even now.

Even so, it would be disadvantageous for us to be forestalled if something were to happen while waiting for the next scout to return. Therefore, we led around 1000 soldiers from the castle to depart at the same time.

 

After all, it was possible to change the place of battle formation while receiving the report from the next scout before moving. At the first relay point, the reinforcement from the branch family should also arrive after receiving the notification on the previous day, and the number of soldiers should rise to 3000.

As the Ruain army shouldn’t have been able to advance this early.

 

Was Margrave Vayne unable to stop the enemy and routed?

I remembered that the number of people in Ruain army was indeed large. However, I wasn’t that familiar with military that I was able to guess the rough number of people in an army with just a glance, so I couldn’t be sure about it.

That was why, I couldn’t make any prediction. I was flustered.

 

“Cain-san, hurry, please!”

“I understand…!”

Cain-san stroke the horse with a spur as he grimaced.

 

He also held me back with one arm as I felt that my body was about to fly off. As I continued to cling onto the saddle, I hugged my master with all my might.

Then, at the moment the Ruain banner could be seen, everyone hastened their horses.

Alan also sprinted towards the castle after telling the infantry to follow later.

 

Anyway, I hope everyone is still safe. I wanted information about that. And then, once the Ruain army’s attack begins, I hope we will be able to run immediately, and block them with all our might.

However, if we aren’t in time for it, anything and everything might be done for. Even after all the trouble I’ve gone through to become a magician, it will all be useless if that happens.

 

As I endured as to not get thrown off by the horse, what flickered behind my eyes was the figure of the fallen Reggie with blood shedding from his body.

At least, I hoped that Reggie wouldn’t go outside. I wished so strongly only for that, and when the full portrait could finally be seen though we arrived at a place concealed by the grove of trees and rocks, we finally stopped our horses.

 

 

Thanks for reading at convallariaslibrary❁ᑕ♡m

 

 

 

 

A wave of soldiers was advancing along the slope of the gentle hilly area. Beyond that point, there was the Everal’s stone castle, the place I became familiar with during this one and a half year as [a place to go home].

The Ruain’s crest of black lion drawn on the yellow soil was approaching the castle moment by moment. The only moment their progress stopped was when arrows rained incessantly from the castle walls.

When the arrow rain was paused, Ruain’s soldiers in their dark armors lowered their shields, closing their gaps slowly but surely. Perhaps they intended to invade by climbing over the castle walls, as they were carrying long stairs over.

Although I couldn’t see it from this side, it seemed that the Ruain army was also in force at the opposite side, near the gate.

 

“F-Father…”

Alan stared blankly at the scene before his eyes.

What happened to Margrave Vayne? I didn’t know even that.

 

Furthermore, the fact that the enemy’s army managed to come this early meant that even if we were able to recruit and gather more personnels, it would still be hard to gather enough military force to cut through them. The troops dispatched from the branch family, too—only the people close in proximity would be able to make it on time, wouldn’t they?

If that was the case, then the castle’s military force… wasn’t that large.

 

I felt dizzy thinking about that.

It was a similar situation with the game’s opening, if not the very thing itself.

We might end up losing if things remained at this rate. The castle would be set on fire. Reggie and Madame Beatrice who were inside wouldn’t be safe.

 

There was only one way left to change this situation in a way or another.

An overwhelming power comparable with thousand of soldiers. The only one who could use that—I had to do it anyhow.

When I went down from Cain-san’s horse as if slipping down from it, I tried to practice my magic into the ground where I put my hands on. I knew how to do it. After this, I had to create gigantic earth dolls (golems) like the ones Kiara summoned in the game…

 

“Wait, Apprentice!”

“Master, but…!”

Why is he telling me to wait in this situation?

I ignored his objection as I threw him off. The moment I saw the face of the clay figurine standing there after successfully landing by himself, the fluster I had within myself was suddenly extinguished.

 

I felt as if I was being pulled back abruptly to my ordinary days.

Come to think of it, I created a clay figurine before because its face was so similar to Master’s. I remembered how startled everyone was due to it.

I was about to laugh as I reminisced. However, nothing came out of my mouth.

After the feeling of fluster and being attacked disappeared, I was immediately attacked by despair, and tears ended up welling from my eyes.

 

“Master…”

“Oi oi oi, you’re my apprentice, so don’t cry. I might be impudent ever since my olden days, but that’s my selling point, ihihi…”

I groaned, “Uu–,” in response to the laughing clay figurine.

 

“But, I couldn’t think of any other way than kicking the Ruain army around with my magic. Why are you stopping me?!”

“I can predict what you’re trying to do in general. You were thinking that it would be good as long as you could create gigantic earth dolls (golems) and smash the soldiers, weren’t you? However, take a good look. Before having the earth dolls (golems) crush them underfoot, aren’t there also your friends there? Though I don’t know if you’re a child with friends or not.”

“Friends?”

 

I took a breath and stared at the distance.

Among the crowd of the black soldiers, there was no other banner than Ruain’s. There was none, but I could tell that there was a slight mayhem happening the whole time over there among the general people.

 

Flash of rising sparks could be seen. It wasn’t something as small as a torch or scattered sparks. I could hear something similar to screams.

    -As I endured( as to not getting) thrown off by the horse>so as to not get
    -“I looked over his objection threw him off”(this sounds kinda weird so i tried a few different things use one of them if you like ^^;)
    1-”i looked over as he objected and threw himself off”
    2-”i looked over his objection threw me off “(this is probably out cuz maybe it’s different to the original meaning of the sentence in the raws so check that first before deciding what to use ,sorry ^^;)

    First of all thank you for picking this up, I’ve been following your works since observational record of a duke’s daughter and I’m really glad to see a great translator such as yourself translate this gem so thank you so much,

    I’ll look forward to the rest, thank you for your hard work!

      Aww, there’s no need to be nervous! (I said that but I was also nervous whenever I posted an update!! XD)
      Feel free to drop more comments from now on~
      I’m glad to hear that you’re reading my projects!! Seems like we have similar taste in novels, and I’m happy to hear that!!

  13. Thank you so much for picking this up! I was sad that I didn’t realize the last translator had even picked up the series until they announced they were dropping it. 🙁
    I’m glad Kiara’s master actually seems like a good guy. Selfish and crude, sure, but definitely not a villain. It could have been really bad if Kiara’s golem accidentally stepped on the Margrave. o_o

      Glad to know that you’re happy I picked this up! ^^
      And yeah, I was worried for a second back in the previous chapters when Kiara wanted Horace to be her master… Turns out he’s actually a pretty good guy, I’m so happy for Kiara!
      ……Kiara’s golem accidentally stepping on the Margrave will surely drive Kiara to madness O_O

  14. ssooo glad you have picked this up!
    So excited for the battle

  15. Hi! Thank you for picking this up!
    I’m a new reader here. I have been wanting to read thia novel but worried due to the late updates from the previous translator ^^;;;
    So I’m glad you picked this up😁

    About the japanese suffixes, i prefer the way you do it better rather than directly translating them into english. As an avid reader of manga and japanese novel, i know there’s meaning in those suffixes that English cannot translate like differences between onii-san, onii-sama and aniki.

  16. Thanks for picking up and translating this series! I really enjoyed it up to this point.
