Chapter 78

 After deciding the strategy, we were about the implement the operation goblin subjugation when a new『Caution』mark appeared on the map from a different direction .

「Wait! Something is coming . 」

We hid ourselves and watched the situation . Fortunately, the mark isn’t coming towards us but towards the village .

「Good, they didn’t seem to notice us . 」 「Onii-chan, look at that!」

When I looked at the direction where Aya was pointing, there was an orc, not a goblin .

「Why is an orc in a place like this!?」 「Perhaps, the orc has come to attack the goblin village?」 「Seiji-sama, it doesn’t seemed to be the case . 」

The orc knelt down towards the goblins for some reason and handed a huge box to one of the goblins .

「Why is the orc obeys the goblins? No matter how you look at it, an orc is stronger than a goblin . 」 「Oh, Seiji-sama! There are people going inside!」 「What did you say!!?」

We saw the orc brought a cage where people are confined inside . So the orcs had been abducting people to offer to the goblins!? But, why would the orcs abduct people for the goblins? I don’t quite understand .

Meanwhile, the orc left the village .

「We must help those people quickly . 」 「Wait, let’s look at the situation first with the lightning spirit . 」

I cast【Summon lightning spirit】and the lightning spirit appeared .

「Scouting again? I’m not a scouting spirit . ~」 「It can’t be helped . 」 「I~ understand!」

I put Aya’s tracking beacon on the lightning spirit temporarily and make it go on a reconnaissance . Besides the ordinary goblins, there’s also a goblin with large build inside the village who gives orders to the ordinary goblins .

「What’s that big goblin?」 「That’s a hobgoblin . 」

Elena told me .

The lightning spirit continued to scout, it found the building where the captives are kept and sneaked in .

「Ah, the people are being forced to work . 」 「They are creating something . 」 「What are they making?」

The lightning spirit approached the things they are making .

「Ah, it’s a magic stone . 」 「The goblins are abducting people using the orc in order to create a magic stone . 」 「But, the workers are divided up . 」

The workers are divided by gender and age from 12 to 50 years old, there doesn’t seem to be a reason in dividing the people they abduct to make a magic stone .

When the lightning spirit moved to the next room, a craftsman-like person was teaching a large group of people how to make a magic stone .

『If you don’t learn how to make a magic stone, you’ll be killed by the goblins . Everybody, let’s work hard to learn how to make magic stones . 』 『『Yes . 』』

I see, after abducting the suitable people, they are teaching them by force . The lightning spirit returned after scouting .

「Thank you very much, you helped us out a lot . 」 「Are you going to raze the village using magic again?」 「No, it’s fine this time . 」 「Is that so? Well then, I’m going to return . 」

As the lightning spirit said so, it returned .

「Let’s go and rescue them immediately . 」

「No, let’s do it according to the original strategy . 」 「Why?」

「There are too many captives . We won’t be able to fight if those people are made to become a shield . 」 「Is that so?~」 「Therefore, luring out the goblins from the village then defeating them is a better strategy . Do you agree, Elena?」 「Yes . 」

We decided to implement the strategy as planned .

「Aya, I’ll entrust you to lure out a smaller number as possible at the beginning . 」 「Understood . 」

I put the tracking beacon on Aya again and let her lure out the goblins . Elena and I moved under the big tree nearby which serves as a landmark and wait while watching the video of Aya .

Aya picked up a pebble and threw it towards the goblin from the forest near the village .

「Fa!?」

The pebble hit the goblin on the head, it turned around to the direction where the pebble came from . There, Aya posed『spanking her own buttocks』…… are you a kid!!?

「Fugoffugof!」

The goblin who was hit by the pebble started to run towards Aya, there were also two other goblins who noticed the goblin’s actions and followed .

「Onii-chan, I was able to lure in three of them . 」 「Alright, good! Elena, do your best . 」

With a feeling of a support, I cast【Quick】and【Barrier】on Elena and【Slow】on the goblins .

「Get ready!」

Elena, with【magic rod】in her right hand, rushed towards the goblins who were confused and surprised . With a form similar to the tennis’ backhand, she hit the first goblin on the flank .

Supan!

The attacked goblin flew to a far away tree while rotating . It crushed, drilled into the tree and stopped moving . The remaining goblins were struck dumb by the exaggerated occurrence . And Elena… .  was also dumbfounded . The magic rod’s power probably surprised even herself .

「Elena!  You mustn’t let your guard down . 」 「Ah, yes!」

Elena focused again when she heard my voice and carefully approached the remaining goblins . The two remaining goblins were scared and stepped backwards .

「Gig!」

The goblins were driven into a corner and one of them rushed blindly towards Elena . Elena flinched a little but firmly resisted it . Elena thrust the magic rod around the chest area of the rushing goblin in order to push it back .

Donn!

With Elena’s thrust, the goblin was blown away to the back and collided with the other goblin . The two goblins were tangled to each other and collapsed . They didn’t move anymore .

「Elena-chan is amazing! Defeating two monsters simultaneously . 」 「N!?」

It seemed Elena couldn’t believe that she did it herself and was dumbfounded . She was astonished and confused .

「Good going Elena! Keep it up!」 「Yes . 」

「Yosh Aya, make the next one also about the same . 」 「Ye~s . 」

, Aya brought along 5 goblins .

「I’m sorry, it’s a bit too much . 」 「Yosh Elena, attack using magic first . 」 「Yes!」

Elena held the【Water rod】in her left hand and with【Cloudburst】, she brought a rain right above the 5 goblins . Perhaps her magic power rose from before, the rain’s might is frightening . The goblins struggled under the cloudburst but only 1 managed to come out from it .

「The rain is exactly right on the money!」

Aya, who was around the cloudburst, kicked the goblin who managed to come out back inside . When the rain stopped before long, although only 4 out of 5 monsters were drowned and were not moving anymore, there’s still 1 monster breathing .

「Elena, there’s still 1 of them left . 」 「Yes!」

Elena held the magic rod in her right hand, she hit last goblin hard and dealt the coup de grâce . Dual wielding rods looks good too .
