“I can’t believe it! What a disappointing result on the first day!”
One of the generals of the Valkyrie Empire’s army said angrily to his troops.
The first day of the war against the Amurian Union and the first joint operation since the alliance between the Valkyria Empire and the Kingdom of Lubel, had ended, and the military council had begun.
I had been assigned to a unit commanded by Curelles, the greatest treasure of the Valkyria Empire and one of the Twelve Heavenly Masters, and at this military council I was Curelles’ valet.
“The Amurian Union is doing better than I thought.”
“I didn’t expect the Amurian Union to have cannons as powerful as the ones provided by the Radol Company.”
“That was certainly not what I calculated. Perhaps, the Radol Company supplied the Amurian Union with their main weapon as well.”
“It’s possible. Because Radol Vega is the most unpredictable man on the continent.”
The results of the first day of the war were not encouraging, but none of the generals of the Valkyria Empire here had a pessimistic look on their faces. This was probably because they had saved their main forces and according to the information’s the Kingdom of Lubel did the same
“The Valkyrie Imperial Army will be humiliated if we continue like this. Tomorrow my troops will be on the front lines.”
When Curelles said this, one of the generals hurriedly made this statement.
“If High Lord Curelles’ troops go out, the other troops will have no place to play. Can’t you let me try out the new troops under my command first?”
Partly because of the politeness of the way he said it, Curelles accepted the general’s suggestion. I was hoping to have my first fight as an Exlander, but it looks like I’m still going to have to wait until later.
“What’s the matter, Ren, are you unhappy that you can’t go to war?”
Curelles said to me on the way back to the quarters after the military conference. Before I was assigned to his unit, I had never imagined that I would be talking to someone like him, but once I got to know him, I found him to be surprisingly friendly.
“Yes, I do want to test myself as an Exlander as soon as possible.”
“Hahahaha…That’s right. I also want to try out this newly acquired power immediately. But I’m sure it’s the same for the rest of the troops. As the General said, if we go out there, the battle will be over, so let another unit take the lead.”
The troops led by Curelles were an elite force made up entirely of Exlanders. Although the number of machines was small at fifty, they probably boasted the best fighting strength of any unit in the Valkyria Empire at the moment.
If we were to attack, the Amurian Union would have no chance. Since this battle was meant to be a practical test of Nitro Ludia, the other Nitro units should be given the opportunity to do the same.
“Mr. Curelles. As one of the Twelve Heavenly Masters, what do you think of the strength of the Amurian Union?”
I was previously defeated in a battle against the Union of Eastern Nations, the mother body of the Amurian Union and I was curious to see how Curelles, one of the best riders on the continent, would view this.
“There’s no need to be afraid of the Amurian Union’s magicraft troops, but I think we should be careful with that main gun. Even a dedicated Exlander won’t be able to stay safe under the concentrated fire of that thing.”
“It’s certainly more astounding than a magicraft. I heard that it easily eradicated the 2nd Division’s Stinger unit.”
“I’d really like to test my skills against some of the more formidable magicrafts, but I don’t think there are any riders in the Amurian Union who can fight us who have become so strong through Nitro Ludia. I guess we’ll have to leave that until the battle with the Elysian Empire.”
As one of the best riders in the Valkyrie Empire, Curelles’ Ludia value has exceeded 400,000 thanks to Nitro Ludia. It would seem that the term “enemyless” is even reserved for him.
