After returning to his house, Jin entrusted the Kaina village business to Butler A and went to Hourai island using the warpgate in the workshop underground.
“Laojun, give me the details.”
Without greetings, Jin went straight for the main topic.
[Yes. It all started with…]
Laojun explained in chronological order.
Starting with the time when Lishia stayed at Earl Walter’s mansion for one night when she went to greet him.
And that the possibility of them doing something to the pigeons during that time is high. The reason behind that is the pigeon’s feathers started to swell afterwards.
He mentioned how Lishia’s condition worsened after she left Toka village. And that the very next day Earl Walter’s condition also deteriorated.
And that this morning, his condition took a steep decline suddenly and he…
“That earl… He didn’t do anything good till the very end, huh?”
Hearing the situation, Jin clenched his fist so his nails probably dug into his wrist. He had felt an intense anger towards Earl Walter but the Earl is no longer in this world.
Jin thought of what he should prioritize for the time being… and forcibly changed his thoughts to come up with a plan against the disease.
“I see. I understand. Your speculation is the same as mine. The chances of the pigeon being the medium for the transfer of the disease is pretty high.
Jin remembered bird flu and psittacosis. A similar disease might also exist in this world.
[A healing medicine was enough to make Ms. Lishia fully recover from it. And after that, as I have reported, we sterilized their belongings and also gave medicine to the horses and the birds.]
And just in case, they also had everyone in the village have the pelshika juice with the medicine mixed in it. Kaina village was safe for the time being.
“However, the villages which fall in the path Lishia took. Also the cities surrounding Rakham…”
This is what he had feared a few days ago. It seems that no one has gotten sick yet.
However, if the disease also transmits from human to birds, then this is a serious matter. Then it would spread throughout the Kurain kingdom in a flash and probably even to the neighboring countries. It would be a pandemic.
[We have collected the short sword from that demon-like being, who apparently goes by the name ‘Raldus’, in order to determine his location. Land Y should be delivering it here soon.]
“Mm? Land Y? Why?”
Land Y is supposed to be in charge of Kaina village’s defense. So why was he retrieving something from the demon?–Thought Jin.
[Yes. That Raldus saw through Deneb 30’s stealth and, although for a short time, there was a fight. There, he was able to take the demon’s sword but he also took a blow and became unable to perform movement actions properly and so I sent Land Y and Z as support. Land Z to help Deneb 30 come back and Land Y to retrieve the sword.]
“It was probably bad letting Deneb 30 pursue him alone.”
[Yes. I thought having more people chase him would make it easier for him to notice but it seems like that backfired. Moreover, they were at the Great Shama Wetlands so the quintas weren’t near either.]
“I guess that couldn’t be helped… Now if only we do not lose this Raldus guy, it will all work out.”
[Yes. According to Koushin’s report, it doesn’t seem like anyone is following Land Y. We can assume that the demon is not following.]
Speaking of the devil, Land Y had just come through Kaina village’s warp gate. And it is needless to say that he had also raised his body temperature to 200 degrees along the way to kill any bacteria per Laojun’s instructions.

“Oh, good job, Land Y.”
“Master, I see you have returned here. Laojun, here is the sword.”
Land Y handed over the sword to Laozi, Laojun’s terminal.
“Mm? Let me see that a bit.”
Saying that, Jin took the sword. And seeing the material it was made of, his eyes opened wide. It was something he had never seen before.
A kind of material even the Magi Craft Meister Jin doesn’t know about.
“….I think it’s probably something from living creatures but…”
Jin abstained his curiosity and handed over the sword to Laozi again. They should prioritize more on locating Raldus now.
[Mana pattern has gotten quite weak but it’s alright, I have recorded it. I will now commence determining his location.]
Saying that, Laojun activated the magi radar. And after a few minutes,
[I got it. The big mana source thought to be Raldus is at Renald kingdom at the moment.]
“Renald kingdom, eh…”
Although it is a part of the small country alliance, due to the forever-continuing mountain range blocking it from other countries, it barely has any diplomatic relations to other countries and is filled with mysteries.
Even the Quintas weren’t deployed there yet.
“I would like to deploy Quintas to Shouro empire and Renald kingdom too. But there’s a need to increase them in that case…”
[My lord, do you plan on increasing the Quintas?]
Jin replied ‘yes’ to Laojun’s question. And so, Laojun said,
[My lord, considering Raldus’ physical abilities, it will be worrisome to keep the Quintas as they are.]
Jin also agreed. And while he was thinking of exactly how to do that, Land Z had also returned with Deneb 30.
They had also made sure to get rid of all bacterias and that no one was following them.
“Ohh, good job, Deneb 30, Land Z.”
As Jin praised them, Land Z just replied with,

“I have just done my job. Well, then.”
And went back to Kaina village but Deneb 30 looked apologetic.
“Chief, I am very sorry to say that I have ended up injuring the body you have given me.”
But Jin just said kindly,
“It’s fine. You did well this time. Without the information you provided, the situation might have turned out worse.”
