Maken no Daydreamer Chapter 4 Part 2
……Un, I completely understand now.
“What in the friggin hell is that mother doing—–?”
I forcefully throw the letter in the dustbin. Of course without eating breakfast,[ET: I never thought dustbin was in this house.]
wore the usual training uniform swiftly, and while taking objects seeming that they will be needed, I immediately left the house.
(POV changed to Lilyn)
The mountain road is at a distance of 1 day from the nearest city when using a carriage.
On that road, a group of illegal ‘Slave Merchants’ carrying me in of their carriages, were heading towards the south.
I was sitting while hanging down my head in a carriage full of many girls and women.
Under the name of ‘Disarmament’, they took our every clothes except the lingerie, and are gazing at us with eyes that don’t hide their lust.
Aside from the kidnapped and thieves there are two people sitting in the carriage driver’s seat. There are even more number of people in the other carriages. In total……over 30 people. For a slave dealing group, there are a good amount of people with them.
These 30 people, are in all divided in 5 carriages, and are transporting personnel and commodities (slaves included). The carriage I am in is the carriage with the task of transporting commodities.
Inside the the same carriage, there are many girls and women who are wearing old rags. Every one is with good appearance, and all will give good price if sold as slaves.
“Hehehe, We have gained very unexpected harvest, Boss”
“You’re right. Guhehe, we have gained so many girls, and beautiful girls only…….. They all will sell with a good price.”
The vulgar voices along with vulgar laughs of vulgar thieves can be heard. Yep, Vulgar.
Oh Geez……people like them never cease to exist in any era.
The thieves are, moving the carriages at a constant speed and are aiming for a city, which will take another 2 days to reach.
And over there, they will either sell us of as slaves or to a buyer from some brothel to gain money.
Well now for this “test”, will Minato be in time? I did write in letter, the time limit is the sunset tomorrow.
……huh, did I write it? No, I feel like I have written it, or not……? Well it’s fine either way. There is no doubt that this much time limit is reasonable. He will be able to understand it.
If you’re wondering why the time limit is the sunset tomorrow. Minato can easily catch up to a normal carriage running at normal speed. But the more time is a bonus for him to worry about what to do if he couldn’t catch up to the carriage.
And one more reason. At the sunset tomorrow, this carriage will reach the nearest city.
The slave dealer, will deal some slaves as a broker, or in the brothel in cities like this. That’s why it won’t be good if he couldn’t catch up to this caravan and save me.
In the 7 years, I have driven all the practical skills into him. On the contrary he thinks about things even I can’t think of, and with his creative power, he surpasses my expectations many times.
He has been researching about magic and has invented some original magic too, from when he was small, and that so, from the time before i recognised him as a ‘man’. And his original magic are so complicated that even an researcher from a country will have trouble finding the magic’s true nature.
The talent of magic and talent of researcher are inconsistent, ever evolving good talents. Really, being my son, he really is fearful.
This task is in complete degree of difficulty he can easily complete.
If he uses all of his technical skills to full extent, and chase after my traces. He will easily catch up to the group I’m with.
Well that is only the case, if he doesn’t fall into panic after reading the contents of the letter and even leave the clues for tracing me.
If he couldn’t concentrate, I can never give him any passing marks…….
I have written in the letter like that, so I doubt about it. I don’t want to become a mother who leaves some deep scars on the heart of a child.
Though the Succubus love that ‘sort of thing’, but we choose our partners and care about our child, family too. More than anything else.
Well, I resorted to this method, for Minato to become serious and desperate. [ET: remember this line.]
When I was thinking that, at that moment.
—-DoGan!! DoGann, DoGgAnnN!!
Seems like outside there is some ruckus?
Eh, No way , did he come already? I thought that for a second, but there is no way that is possible.
There is no way he could come so fast, not so much time has passed too. For coming till here he has cross the rocky mountains where there is bad footing, and he has to take a detour towards the river to cross the bridge too (Minato cannot fly, after all.). And many other problems too.
Then, the other options left are, maybe bandits? Or Goblins or Orcs who live in the mountains.
And then, the man watching over me and others also seemed to know what was happening outside. Just at the moment he tried to look outside the carriage.
All of the sudden the man shouts in a thick sounds. Looks like he got hit from someone outside (Or ‘Something’), the man then does a somersault and gets inside the carriage. [ET: Why can some lousy side characters posses expensive skills like Somersault?]
Well then who was the one who did this……Nh?
There only seems to be presence of one person outside.
And in the next moment,
The owner of the presence and the punch which sent the man flying (with a somersault) enters without hiding his wild breath.
“……Isn’t this just too early?”
“Just that much!? Is that the only thing you need to say to the son you made worry by leaving the house and only left behind that crap letter!? Is that the only thing you say to your son who has ran at top speed and came to save you and has completed his test!?”
My son who betrayed my predictions, was unbelievably worried about me and was shouting at me while dripping with sweat.
