>Look at mine.”

“Huh? Where? It’s too small.”

“Put that dirty thing back in, now.”

Said a soldier who was a little off of the conversation.

“It’s about time we move on to the next village, because we’ve stolen all we can.”

“I was wondering what would happen when Kanoa was destroyed, but a winning battle was sure great.
I’m glad I joined the Highserk army.”

The soldier was taken prisoner of the Highserk Empire during the Kanoa campaign, but was released after four months of manual labor without being killed and joined the Highserk army.

The soldiers around him have similar circumstances. The soldiers, who knew only the losing battle, were intoxicated with the victorious liquor for the first time.

The soldier continued to chat, but was forcibly silenced. When a dazzling flash ran, a big explosion occurred in a corner of the village.

The dust cleared up in the collapsed lookout and the storage shed where the soldiers were staying.

“What is it? What is that light!?”

“The turret and the Tarus’s squad have blown away.”

No matter how relaxed they were, the soldiers fighting on the front line responded quickly. Wore reasonably high-defense armor and explored the true nature of the explosion.

“It’s an attack!! There are magic users who use large-scale magic.”

A voice informing the situation echoed from a corner of the village.

“Tch, they’re already in the village――”

The soldiers who were chatting while doing their job also caught the enemy’s shadow.

“Did a decent soldier remain?”

From the hazy shadows, the soldiers realized that the enemy’s equipment was of good quality. Wearing armor from the feet to head, they felt like a well-trained regular soldier, not a bunch of crude militias that were called by the country in an emergency.

“Watch out for friendly fire.”

“What are these guys? They look different from the soldiers up until now?”

The soldiers who entered the battle earlier had already sunk to the ground. Although it was the first move, it was an unusual situation for the Highserk soldiers, who had many experienced soldiers.

“Damn, Tarkin’s squad was eaten.”

“These guys――ain’t Ferius soldiers, but Craist soldiers.”

“What’s going on? It’s too one-sided even if they’re from Craist.”

Craist was one of the mid-sized countries far away from Highserk.
Highserk soldiers never faced Craist soldiers in the border battle, so they were unknown opponents, who might have no battle experience.
But the Highserk soldiers kept spouting curses while being buried one after another.

“Don’t joke with me.
It’s the Order of Rehazen of Craist.
They’ve joined hands.”

There were two armies in Craist. An army consisted of people who were half-farmers and half-soldiers. And the knights who have been in military service for generations. Even now, the existence of what was called a knight still existed around Highserk, but the Knights of Craist Kingdom were by far the most powerful and feared by neighboring countries.

“Even though I’ve defeated one knight, more than 10 people have been killed.”

A slashing soldier was chopped his upper body with a shield, and another soldier was slashed with a war hammer.

“The physical ability and the amount of mana are too different.
Besides, I’m afraid they have skills.”

When it came to the Knights, no matter how strong Highserk soldiers were, if they were to fight head-on with the same number, the soldiers would be inferior. Moreover, in addition to the surprise attack, the formation and the chain of command were disrupted by a series of large-scale magic.

“Abandon the village.
Give up except for the luggage you can carry.”

The veteran Platoon Commander decided to retreat at his own discretion. He wasn’t instructed by the company commander, and he decided that they had been defeated after seeing the first strike.

“Damn it, even though I’ve collected it with trouble.”

“It’s better than dying.
It’s better to have Jaff Cavalry Battalion or Liguria Battalion to take on them.”

The two units mentioned were the ones with the best combat power in the Highserk army. In the battle against Myard, two units defeated Winston Myard and decided on the victory.

The platoon, with its direction, flooded into a corner of the siege to break the siege. The number of knights wasn’t large, and except for the knights, they weren’t so different from the regular soldiers of Ferrius.

The Highserk soldier, who stabbed two Craist soldiers with a spear, was convinced that they could escape the siege. 

There, a man blocked them.

“Resistance is useless.
Surrender now.”

“Move from there, brat”

The opponent was a soldier with black hair and black eyes that still had its vigor. He felt like someone who had never gone to any battle, and the armor with flashy decorations felt odd. With the threats, the soldier thrust his spear at the enemy soldier’s throat.

“Wait, that guy is―― “

A fellow Highserk soldier who saw the mana that increased to the point it could be seen by eyes, tried to stop the man. 

Light shone from the sword that was swung down.

“Wha, is this light!!”

When the soldier’s field of vision was shrouded in light, he was swallowed by the explosion, and his consciousness was momentarily cut, but it never returned.

In the Sarria battalion, three companies that had been separated to secure provisions were annihilated, and 700 soldiers didn’t return to the meeting point.
It was great damage to Highserk Army.
