Chapter 4-32 : Protest Campaign In Griffon Village (part 3)
「Umm, I think it will be quicker to see it yourself than to listen to my explanation. Village Chief-san, can I use that building for the demonstration?」(Mylia)
Mylia pointed toward a hut that looked like a resting place in the village square.
「Of course. Boul, you better not blink.」(Popo)
Mylia approached the building, stretched her arms toward it, and started lifting it into the air, separating it from the ground using Gravity Magic.
The ground was shaking and the sound of the big chunk of soil under the building being separated from the ground was heard.
All the villagers in the village square, including Boul and the other protesters, were looking at the hut that was floating in the air along with the big chunk of soil underneath it in awe.
「Oi, oi, oi… Seriously…?」
「It’s floating… No way…」(protesters)
「What in the world am I seeing…?」(Boul)
Their eyes and mouths were wide open. They couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
It was the second time the Village Chief, Popo, watched Mylia doing it, but he was still stunned by the incredible sight in front of him.
「Hoho~ Lady Mylia is impressive as always.」(Popo)
While the surrounding people were looking at the floating building, Mylia turned her face to Boul and the other protesters and started explaining while still maintaining her Gravity Magic.
「First of all, I use my Gravity Magic to separate the building from the ground just like this. After thatー」(Mylia)
The building suddenly disappeared.
Realizing the building was no longer in their sight, the people started to become noisy again.
「Where the hell did such a large building go?」
「I swear I didn’t blink but it happened in a split second!」(protesters)
「Lady Mylia, what have you just done?」(Boul)
「No need to panic, everyone. The building now is inside my Magic Bag. I will store every building in this village in my Magic Bag and relocate them to the new place. Boul-san, what do you think?」(Mylia)
Boul, who was still amazed by the incredible sight he just saw, came to his senses when Mylia asked him.
「Y, Yeah… Now I know why you said it could be done in one day… Lady Mylia, please forgive me for doubting you.」(Boul)
「I understand how you will transport the buildings, but how will you transport us, the people? We need to cross the Demon Forest to your village. I’m afraid some of us will die before we reach your village.」(Boul)
「Ah, you don’t have to worry about it. To transport the villagers, I will use this!」(Mylia)
Saying that, Mylia took out a fancy-looking carpet from her magic bag.
「Yup. Watch this.」(Mylia)
Mylia cast her Gravity Magic on the carpet to make it float in the air and then hopped onto the carpet.
「I will guide the carpet with my Gravity Magic. All you need to do is just sit on it like this. We will need more carpets, and I don’t think I will be able to carry all the villagers alone, so I might need help from the griffons as well.」(Mylia)
「…I, I see… Incredible… As a peddler, I’ve been in so many places and I’ve met so many people, but I’ve never seen a magician as great as you…」(Boul)
After saying that, Boul turned around and nodded to the other protesters. They then nodded back at Boul as if they knew what he was trying to say.
Right after, Boul and the other protesters kneeled before Mylia.
「Lady Mylia, please forgive our rudeness and allow us to follow you and live under your protection.」(Boul)
（Phew… Another problem has been solved peacefully!）
Mylia might not realize it because she lacked confidence, but she was fit to be a leader.
After that, the villagers started preparing for the departure. They looked excited to live in the new place.
However, Mylia realized something.
（Aa… Since I wasn’t planning to relocate the village today, I haven’t prepared a vacant area for this village. I came only to talk with Village Chief-san after all… Ugh, I think I should go back first to tell Onee-chan.）
「Umm, Village Chief-san, I think I should go back first.」(Mylia)
「Don’t worry, I’ll be back in a minute.」(Mylia)
「Alright then. We’ll be waiting for you.」(Popo)
Mylia nodded to the village chief and teleported back to the Atwood Village.
Chloe was still working in the village square when Mylia returned.
「Onee-chan, I’m back!」(Mylia)
「Welcome back, Mylia~」(Chloe)
「Onee-chan, what should I do…?」(Mylia)
「What’s wrong? Did something happen in the Griffon Village?」(Chloe)
Mylia explained about the protesters in the Griffon Village to Chloe. She also told Chloe that the villagers decided to move today.
「I see… Good job on dealing with the protesters. Anyway, we need to prepare a vacant area for the village, right? Let’s see…」(Chloe)
Chloe looked at the rough map of the Atwood Territory she made and drew two circles next to the village on the map.
「I think we can use this area for the village and this area for griffon’s nests. We can easily build a road connecting this village to Griffon Village in the future if they’re close to each other.」(Chloe)
「Alright. Roger that! I’m going now!」(Mylia)
「Please don’t push yourself too hard.」(Chloe)
「Un. Don’t worry!」(Mylia)
Mylia flew toward the area that was circled on the map and then started clearing the surrounding trees.
It didn’t take long for Mylia to clear the area with magic.
She used Wind Blade to cut down the trees and Gravity Magic to pull the stumps out of the ground. After that, she transported the logs to the village to be used as materials to build buildings later.
She then returned to Griffon Village and started putting the buildings, fields, griffon’s nests, and other facilities into her magic bag.
The villagers were excited when they watched Mylia doing that. It was a spectacular magic show for them.
