Ten kilometers from the fortress of the Raja Empire…
In order to secure a new mining station for magicrafts, the Iron Knights, the trainee troops, the personnel and equipment of the mining station gathered here.
“First, we’ll send in a dummy mining party and an escort unit. If we are attacked by the enemy, the trainee troops and the Iron Knights will sortie from here to counterattack and capture the fortress.”
“What if the enemy doesn’t attack us?”
“If that happens, we’ll build a fort between the mining station and the fortress. If we start building forts, they’ll probably get in the way, so then we’ll attack the fortress as we originally planned.”
“I guess that means we’re good to go once the fort is complete.”
“Whatever the enemy does, we’ll deal with it.”
I’m sure Jean will be able to handle it.
The dummy mining party was an unmanned transport ride hover with a few moving puppets on it. The puppets couldn’t do any work, but from the enemy’s fortress, they looked like people working on something.
Since the convoy was going to be attacked and it was dangerous, it was decided that three of us, me, Lorgo, and Nanami, would do it. Some of the trainees volunteered to do the job, but we couldn’t let them do it.
As soon as the dummy mining team arrived at the planned location and started their work, there was movement in the fortress of the Ruja Empire as planned. But they didn’t launch an attack, perhaps waiting to see what would happen first.
“I knew they wouldn’t make a move.”
“They’ve been beaten up in previous battles and it’s obvious that attacking us would lead to war. If they’re going to attack, they’ll have to get confirmation from the top.”
That’s true. It seems that the commander in the field will not act on his own judgment.
Several hours had passed since the dummy mining team started moving, but there was no movement from the fortress. There was no point in just continuing to move the dummies, so it was time to move on to the next step.
“Okay, plan B. Deploy an engineering unit to the north of the planned mining site and start building a fort. Since they’re not dummies, all the Iron Knights will be sent out to guard them.”
As the action became more extensive, there was movement in the enemy fortress. Alarms were sounding, and it seemed that the magicrafts were being prepared.
“If the escorting Iron Knights are attacked, we’ll send out a trainee squad.”
It seemed that they had noticed the construction of the fort, and the magicraft troops finally sailed out from the fortress. There were about fifty of them, and they stopped at the river that bordered the border.
“I don’t think they’re going to attack us yet.”
“The upper echelons of the Raja Empire may be asking questions further up the chain.”
“You mean the Valkyria Empire. The current Amurian Union and the Raja Empire have a gap in national power that makes it impossible to fight. If that’s the case, then the only people they can rely on are their overprotective parents.”
I was horrified to hear Alana’s words. The Valkyrie Empire is a pretty big country…….I don’t know if we can handle going to war with them!
“Wait a minute! If that happens, doesn’t that mean there’s a possibility of an all-out war between the Valkyria Empire and the Amurian Union?”
“It won’t come to that. Well, even if they ask for help, the parent Valkyria Empire is in a constant standoff with the powerful Lubel Kingdom, so they can’t afford to get involved with a power as big as the Amurian Union. Well, I guess the result will be that they will send some aid to Ruja and that will be the end of it.”
However, it’s also important to note that there are a lot of people who are familiar with the history of the Valkyrie Empire and the Kingdom of Lubel. But something doesn’t feel right……
Someone once told me that the common sense of yesterday should not be taken for granted tomorrow. When I think about it, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Valkyria Empire is ready to go to war with the Amurian Federation for real.
