I was sold at the lowest price C326: Critical Situation / Jean

 

The north gate guarded by Nanami and her team has been breached. After all, it was impossible to defend it with that kind of force…….

But the good news is that Nanami has defeated Keimaios. We should be happy to have one less strong enemy.

What are we going to do?……There are no more reinforcements to send to the north…….

There is no way we can send reinforcements. I have no idea what to do about the breached north gate. If we don’t do something, the base will be overrun by enemies from the north.

“Kiyone! I’m sorry, but I’m going to leave the situation to Brunnhilde and Tris, and you can go to the north gate. Alana, you too, leave the situation to Emina and the others and go to the north gate.”

“Jean, there’s no room at the west gate. If I leave, this gate might not hold either.”

“Same here, the south gate is also on the edge.”

“I know. That’s why I’m asking you guys to provide support in all directions. I need you to move to the critical areas and provide support there.”

“That’s absurd…….”

“Hmm…….Looks like it’s going to be a busy day.”

“I know I’m being reckless, but there’s nothing I can do. I’ll buy you a drink after this fight is over, so just hang in there.”

“You said it. Be prepared to lose all your savings.”

“Yes, sir. If that’s the case, I’ll do everything in my power.”

The idea of using Alana and Kiyone, with their mobility and fighting strength, as support for the critical zones had been considered before the battle began.

However, it was one of the most difficult measures to take, and I wanted to avoid it if possible, because it would put a heavy burden on the two of them, and there was a risk that the defense in all directions would be inadequate.

The defenses of the collapsed north gate were picking up as Alana and Kiyone came to their aid. They wiped out the enemy troops that had invaded the base, and the quadruped magicraft that had been running rampant until then seemed to have been defeated by the coordinated attack of Alana, Kiyone, Nanami, Lorgo, and Farma.

However, as I feared, the other directions began to be pushed. The west gate, in particular, was unable to fill the hole left by Alana, allowing the enemy to enter the base.

“Jean, the west gate won’t hold! There’s a very strong force coming in and there’s nothing we can do!”

Alana has left, and Emina, who was leading the defense of the west gate, tells me so. Well, I had expected this to happen.

“Alana, Kiyone, I’m sorry, but I need you to head to the west gate next.”

The two of them immediately headed for the west gate after a light reply. But at the same time, a request for help came in from the south gate as well.

“The south gate is also at its limit! The gate has already been destroyed and more and more people are entering the base!”

Brünnhilde gave me a report that made my head spin.

“Brünnhilde, I understand. I will send the remaining forces at the east gate to the south.”

With this, the Ride Carriers would be the only ones defending the east gate, but thanks to my initial plan, the attacks on the east gate were relatively weak, so they should be able to manage.

However, it was a naive idea. At the same time that the magicraft unit at the east gate left, the enemy’s attacks became more intense. And to make matters worse, some of the Salamander’s main cannons reached their limits and became unusable.

“Shit! Don’t let the enemy magicrafts get close! Don’t worry about the Salamanders limit, just fire at them!”

One after another, the Salamanders reached their limit and stopped. The firepower was getting weaker, and the enemy magicrafts were cutting through the barrage and approaching the ride carriers. There was nothing the ride carriers could do if the magicrafts approached. They broke into the ship and destroyed the core.

“We’ve reached our limit…….We have no choice! All ride-carriers, retreat to the center of the base! We’re abandoning the east gate!”

We decided that we could no longer defend it and abandoned the east gate. We have already allowed a large number of enemy magicrafts to enter the base, and we are beginning to feel the limitations of defending the gates.

“Countless enemies have invaded the base. Since defending the gates is already pointless, I’m concentrating the forces in the center of the base! All troops retreat to the central area!”

Abandoning the gates in all directions was considered the last option, but it was unlikely that it would come today…….There was still time before the sun went down, and it was unlikely that the enemy would make a temporary retreat this far out. There was nothing to be done about the war situation, which was likely to be settled by the end of the day.
