Chapter 12 Kidnapped (3)

 

 

“GYAAAAAAAAAA!!”

“Ahahahahaha!”

 

    The magic circle was destroyed quickly right after I infused it with my magic power, the man screamed when he was swallowed by <Tornado>. Some splinters from the destroyed floor got swallowed up inside <Tornado>, and it tore up the man’s body. It’s like he was getting swallowed by a washing machine together with some lethal weapons. Torn up clothes, scattered blood, I cancelled the <Tornado> magic when the air started to smell like blood and looked at the man’s condition.

 

“Guu, wha, just what….. are you…….”

“That’s right I, Tte like I’m going to tell you that! Anyway, where is the girl you kidnap together with me?”

“I, I don’t- “You know right?””

“No, if you said you don’t know then I just have to look for myself. For now let’s take your magic power <Magic Power Takeover>”

“Wh, what…..!? U, aa……..”

 

    I used a magic that steals magic power on him. He will lose his magic power for at least one day, but since I’ve never tried it before I’m not really sure about the duration. Seems like he lost consciousness after losing his magic power or because of the loss of blood.

Just in case, I put my hands in front of my chest together and pan~ push them on the ground near him and make a cage surrounding him. It’s magic not alchemy though.

 

    Seems like the other kidnappers started to noticed something’s wrong from the battle or the scream, I can heard a lot of footsteps coming here. Dotadota~ They’re coming from the stairs and from the passage.

When I left  the room, I faced those coming from the passage.

 

“Onii-chans, are you all kidnappers?”

 

    I look at them while unnaturally tilting my head.

 

“……”

 

    Those men just stay still while glaring at me. Looks like they are not some idiots who didn’t feels something was odd when a girl who is supposed to be bound comes out from the room.

 

“If you’re looking for the magician guy, he’s already sleeping back there you know? Are there not any strong magicians here? If not then obediently listen to what I say, and if any of you try to attack me I’m not going to guarantee your life. By the way, it’s a joint responsibility okay?”

“This shitty brat….!!!”

“Idiot! Stop!!!!”

 

    While saying that coercively, that guy with a low boiling point came slashing with his long sword.

 

“<Kamaitachi>1, <Ice Lance>”

“Wha…!!”

“HURTS! IT’S HUUURTS!!!”

“Guaa!!?”

“What happe…!? Gofu!!”

 

    I hold my hands forward while chanting magic. Though there is no deep meaning when I chant the aria in Japanese and English, it can make the image materialization easier.

The magic cut and pierces the men. Arms flying, heads pierced, those in the back only got minor injuries but the damage makes it so they can’t stand. I can feel the gastric acid in my stomach starting to swell up from seeing a human’s corpse without a head for the first time.

 

“Uu…… Oeeeee…….”

 

    I put my hands on the wall and spit out empty vomit. Though my breathing is getting rough because I throw up, I didn’t feel like I have lost anything or any guilt, it’s more like I was feeling refreshed. After that I take a long sword and throw those who’re still alive into the room, and then I merge the door and wall from outside so they can’t open it.

 

“It stinks of blood. Is there no one in the other rooms?”

 

    I’m really talking to myself here. My clothes got stained with blood too, but well let’s leave it for now. I found a room like the one I was confined in when I was checking around this floor, but there are just vacant rooms next to the one I threw the men into.

Seems like this is the lowest floor, because I can’t find the staircase to get out of the basement, I decided to teleport to the floor above.

 

*

 

“Oo, that was fast. What happened down there?”

“Iyaa~, it was really troublesome you see. When the magician just start to blabbering something the others began to attack me. So I accidently killed some of them. Tehepero~”

“!! Who the hell are you!!”

“Kidnapped girl A. Are you the boss?”

 

    I tried to give a reply with a playful tone to the man who thought his friends were coming back. Though he started to ready his spear silently, is he the boss? I guess it’s better to capture him then kill him if he is the boss.

 

“<Bind>”

“Hiiii!!”

 

    I cast magic with a short chant toward him, black tentacles started to spread from his feet to his body and then bind him.

 

“So, where is the boss?”

“Uguu….”

“Fumu? <Poison>. I just used poison magic on you, if you don’t properly talk you will suffer till you die you know?”

“Guuu……..”

“The boss, where is he?”

“…..”

“Haaa, it’s become more troublesome. SO ARE YOU THE BOSS?”

“……… No”

 

    When I use more strength for confirmation, he answers with hollow eyes. Oh yes, honesty is the best. Though I don’t really understand why I suddenly started talking like this.

 

“I see, thank you. Thank you for your hard work, <Air Cutter>”

 

    I cut off his head with <Air Cutter>. It’s different from <Kamaitachi>, <Air Cutter> only has 1 cutting edge but is much wider while <Kamaitachi> has many but are smaller. I’m scared of myself for not feeling any sense of guilt while killing this many people in such a short amount of time, but I don’t have any room to show sympathy to these kidnappers.

I’m still a beginner at fighting after all.

 

    Because it’s quite dark inside this room, I use <Light> and search for Haru. When it gets brighter, I quickly look in other places because that guy’s corpse entered my view.

There is 1 large jail and 3 small jails. It’s now possible to look through the jail bars of each of these jails from the outside.

 

    Because Haru was in the middle of changing clothes, right now she’s only wearing underwear….. Although I said underwear, she wear drawers under a non see-through chemise. If it’s in Japan it can be a cute pajama for girl. And so I look for a girl with a clothes like that.

 

“Haru?”

 

    When I take a look in the large jail, there are 5 kids gathered in the inner most part while looking at me with frightened eyes.

Umu, she’s not in here.

 

“Ne, Nee-sama?”

“Haru!!”

 

    When I approach the jail where Haru is, she was crying while hold the jail’s bars.

 

“Haa….. Thank god. I will open the door right now okay. <Kaijou>” (TL note: she return to her ojou-sama mode here)

“E? E??”

 

    Kacha~ the lock opened after I used <Kaijou>. I bring Haru who’s still dumbfounded from the jail outside when the jail’s door opened.

 

“Haru, are you unhurt?”

“U, un…”

“Was there something unpleasant they did to you?”

“No they, didn’t. Desu wa”

“I see, that’s good then.”

“Nee-sama that blood, is it……?”

 

    Haru was coming closer to me while crying but she suddenly stopped her feet and frightened when looking at my blood stained attire.

 

“Aa, this? This is just someone blood splatter. Don’t mind it.”

 

    I raise the skirt hem slightly and playfully spin around. Haru looks like she has just seen something unbelievable though.

Haru look at me from top to bottom and holds my hand as she gives up.

 

“Saa, let’s return home. Lein-oniisama must be searching for us right now.”

“….. Yes”

“A, that’s right <Kaijou>. All of you to, quickly get out of here. If you want to follow us until town then I will help.”

 

    I opened other cells and called out to the kids who also were kidnapped.

 

 

 

  1. 鎌鼬/kamaitachi, Japanese folklore monster/yokai appear as 3 weasels, usually come out to cut their victims in a whirlwind. Though she’s not summoned them, she chant it and imagine it like a wind blade.

    • Rebel Against The Harem

      Haha, I thought the exact same thing.

    • Awe

      I mean she did throw up…

    • Red Reaper

      Isn’t this a natural thing to do when your family is in danger though?

      • Kidnapping would be a lot less common if that were the case… ?

        • Red Reaper

          Hm… Maybe it’s just my yandere tendencies but I would dispose of any danger to my family too, So I can understand the MC.

        • Iggy

          Nope. This situation is different. The girl has overwhelming power. If it were normal citizens, even if they want to fight if they don’t have the strength and power all will be in vain.

          • 295Phoenix

            I think that Emil’s original personality from the game took over here. Since this story takes place in a medieval setting, it’d make sense if the character’s original personality didn’t hold back. Back then kidnappers and other bandits would’ve just been executed if captured alive anyway.

  • Red Reaper

    Haru-jou was so shocked she let her tsundere slip.

  • Yukino o

    lol, suddenly turn to killing spree. Kinda remind me of tales of the lax demon. That one also suddenly genre shift during kidnapping incident. Now, onward to the path of demon king.

    • Rebel Against The Harem

      She was a demon from the beginning.
      This girl on the other hand was raised as a normal japanese girl, in a normal noble society.
      So the impact is different.
      Besides, at least she threw up. The first time is the hardest, they say.

  • So Haru is probably going to treat her Onee-sama better now.

  • Rebel Against The Harem

    Man, this series got soo good soo fast.
    It’s almost like a Xian xia, where the main character doesn’t blink twice about killing people.
    And its a japanese main character too, so that makes it even more epic.
    Slicey slicey.

  • Iggy

    Her lack of guilt is probably caused by her treatment at home.

  • library rocker

    Soooooo, her using magic is pretty well revealed ne? But seriously, cool!!!

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

  • FranckOA

    Soo… Nobody find it weird that she went from cute abused noble mage to coldblooded mass killer (especially the last one, a restrained man that was right in front of her) in a few seconds ?
    The author added the puking scene but it was very minimal compared to the brutal change of the MC.
    You don’t kill that much and like that for a first time with just a little puking and a teehee pero…

    You guys read way too many (bad) xianxia if you don’t find this chapter wonky from a storytelling and character growth point.
    Let’s hope the author will develop a more interresting follow up about this slaughter and its aftermath later instead of just swiping it under the rug…

    • Koonri1

      Actually the first kill was while she was attacked with sword (lethal weapon), and the crowd of bandits was at the attacker’s side nearby , if she got rid of only one the others could attack her instinctively. So her life was clearly on the line. Though the last one when she finished wasn’t a threat, but even then it could be that she was already in the right mood and after the first step the next one is more easy. Also she dreamed of being adventurer so definitely played such scenes in her head.

      • FranckOA

        I don’t think playing a slaughter scene in your head before will help you to shoulder the act, or that it won’t have any lasting impact on your psyche because you already killed someone a few minutes before.

        If it didn’t then PTSD wouldn’t be a thing, especially as it also impact even highly trained professionals, so a little girl from a peacefull rich country reincarned in a noble wouldn’t come back unscathed form such a chapter…

        • 295Phoenix

          Let’s not get carried away here. PTSD affects about 1 in 5 of returning veterans, not suffering from PTSD doesn’t make someone a sociopath. And since this is in a medieval setting, the country is unlikely to be as peaceful as you think.

    • Iggy

      I would agree, if only those were normal, innocent citizens. But if you think about it, these guys did not just have one mage, apparently. They also have a hideout. Jails to keep there kidnaped prisoners. Apart from mages, they also have weapons. And I doubt that those guys are amateurs at wielding weapons. From their actions, it would seem that they have killed people before. And they also seem to be really used to those kinds of activities if you look back on how they operate 2 chapters back. To sum it up, these guys clearly belong to a syndicate or criminal group. So don’t see anything wrong with the MC cleaning up the dirt. Besides, not crushing them would give way to the possibility that these kind of crime to happen again. And, do take note that she didn’t kill every one. The mage who came to see her seems to be alive. Some of the men that didn’t die from her attack were spared. After all, she did warn them and they were just stupid enough to take her lightly. To be perfectly honest, if I were in her shoes, being in a world where crime rate is obviously very high and authorities are either slaking or doing nothing at all and government officials are doing nothing but stuffing their bellies and pigging out, I may not be as merciful as her and spare anyone. I might even end up hunting down not just the boss but every one involved in such crime. And, no, I don’t read xianxia. In fact, I don’t read chinese novels so I do t know exactly what xianxia is.

      • FranckOA

        Killing is not that easy for the mind, whether it be a bad or a good individual that you kill.
        Especially for someone who lived in such a peacefull modern society as ours she had been reincarned but still have her previous personality and memories…

        A scene where a character that come from a peacefull and bountifull country in her previous life and had lived a sheltered noble life (with some minimal moral abuse) in her second life suddenly kill a lot of people while only feeling a mild physical disconfort is shallow writing. But it’s quite symptomatic of a amature author.

        The biggest problem here in term of storytelling is that it remove the “weight of death”. Afterward it will be very hard to feel any tension to the story or significance to the action scene as killing had became a trivial thing.

        Like what happen when you see those old action movies where you can imagine a “death counter” dinging and flashing like a flipper table, with combo extra score for over 100 kills with one clip ;o)

        That’s why I hope that the author will bring more to what happened here than just a “teehee pero bad things happened to bad guys” in the following chapters.

        The bad xianxia novels I was talking about are like this, stories of a psychopatic MC obsessed with pride, overstuffed with plot armor, killing everything he doesn’t like, while the author writhe around obvious double standards, flooding the story with ridiculously obnioxous villains and 1 dimensional secondary characters that cease to exist as soon as they are off screen.

        • nguuuquaaa

          Her life (and her sister’s) is on the line here. Doesn’t matter killing is good or not. Doesn’t matter if later killing becomes normal or not. For now. She has her priorities straight, and that’s good.

  • 295Phoenix

    Well, she certainly went Xianxia-mode on those kidnappers. Tehepero~

  • kirindas

    Brilliantly vicious. That was excellent!
    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • João Paulo Francisconi

    Wow… That went south really fast. From cute otome game villaneiss to badass beheading mage bitch in a chapter? Is she letting out steam from her stressfull life? Damn!

  • black bunny

    yup~ i will stick to this novel… giv me moar! Tehepero~

  • tsunderehater

    Where the hell did this baddass appear from?
    Damn, I guess haru is welcome to the harem XD

    • 295Phoenix

      I just hope she stays badass and puts Sieg-oniisama in his place.

      • tsunderehater

        Wait…..what did onii sama do?

        • 295Phoenix

          Sieg? Acting like a jerk to her every time he appears.

          • tsunderehater

            Oh no…..I meant the onii-chan,not the Gomii-chan

          • 295Phoenix

            Well, Lein is 100% cool…as far as we know *cue scary music*.

  • Alph Medina

    Well, it’s really refreshing, I mean what happen, lol.

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^

  • Alph Medina

    This novel is actually the one I’m most interested here in the site.
    Can’t get that immersed in the others or get entertained that much ~_~

  • My next question: is she going to lie about this incident to the adults? She certainly doesn’t want her eldest brother to know about it… ?

    • Iggy

      Or she could make an excuse like a man with a mechanical left arm and eyepatch came and saved them. Or a mage wearing an odd looking mask and dark robes and holding a golden staff dropped by and rescued them.

  • Sherrynity

    “Where are those bandits!? I’ll kill them all!!”

    “Weeell, some are mutilated, and the rest should be barely alive, I guess?”

  • doh

    wah, cool, you’re very cool Emil-chan~
    Thanks for the translation!

  • Student

    ugh. there’s no button for the next chapter

    • Iggy

      Translation seems to have a 2 day interval.

      • Student

        Thank you for the information sir.
        i’ll read something else until then

  • lilith49545

    I’m actually kinda scared of the MC now. She poisoned and cut the boss’s head off without any remorse. Even if she remembers her past life… killing someone would absolutely be horrifying. A little blood spatter is fine but she just cut off the dudes head.… and in such a up beat mentality.

  • KillMeKwikLee

    lol.. I thought it was just some scheme her brother made in the early parts of the chapter because he might have had info from the school staff and just tried to test her….. but at the end, i’m guessing it’s just a lolicon noble trying to kidnap young girls as slaves or something like that…….. just saying…

    • KillMeKwikLee

      thanks for the chapter by the way….. 😀

  • alexandra

    i feel like i’m lost she changed too fast but i’m not complaining … i like it this way i just hope she keeps the attitude!!!
    thanks for the chapter!!!

  • anon

    Woaah…I like her personality split. Thanks for the chapter !

  • Honestly this is my kind of reaction. You kindnapped me and my sibling amd appear to ne a threat then you got to go. In this setting if you leave murderous villians behind they come back for revenge so mass elimination is the way to go.

  • midori

    thanks!
    lol, i really like her true self! also, it’s good that she has gotten used to killing fast! well, it can’t be helped about the kidnappers…

  • Craig

    She became yandere
