Chapter 24: The Base Demolition


Falcon No. 1 is pretty large.


Even with its wings folded, it’s one size larger than a large dog.


The Research Lab isn’t that spacious, so with Falcon No. 1, it feels even smaller.


Werner: “I only have dried ration bread.” “FaRU”


Hati: “Hati loves dried ration bread!”


We all ate the not so great dried ration bread and drank water.


After our meal, Hati and Falcon No. 1 seemed pretty sleepy.


Hati has been working very hard since noon, and Falcon No. 1 has been traveling long distances, so there’s no doubt that they’re both tired.


Werner: “Just use the bed or couch as you like.” “FaRU”


The Falcon No. 1 lays on my bed and begins to sleep.


Hati laid next to the Falcon No. 1 and went to sleep as well.


Once I see that Hati and Falcon No. 1 fell asleep, I start making the Magecraft Artifact that I completed today.


While I was making the prototype, I was thinking about spare parts, so I built many extra spare parts in advance.


That’s why I don’t have to make many new parts to make new units. The majority of the work is to build and make slight adjustments.


As I think about giving this to my sister, I need to expand the device’s range to not just a small Research Lab, but protect a wider area.


By the time midnight struck and the calendar date changed, I was able to make 10 more Barrier Generators, and I decided to take a bath before going to sleep.


Once I got out of the bath, I laid in between Falcon No. 1 and Hati who were fast asleep comfortably in bed.


As I laid down, Falcon No. 1 briefly opened its eyes.


And it drew closer and nestled against me.


Werner: “Thank you. You’re really warm.”


“.........FaRU”


Falcon No. 1 closed its eyes and went back to sleep.


Though it’s the middle of winter, because of Falcon No. 1 and Hati, I was able to stay warm throughout the night.


<<<<>>>>


The next morning.


I woke up in between Falcon No. 1’s incredibly soft and warm feathers.


Hati was also buried inside Falcon No. 1’s feathers.


Werner: “Thank you. You kept me very warm last night.”


“FaRU”


As we ate breakfast, I taught Hati and Falcon No. 1 about my Master’s directions and about destroying the base.


Since the Barrier Generator was complete, I also told them about how I was moving back to the Capital as well.


Hati: “What?! You’re going to destroy it without leaving a trace? How wasteful.”

“FaRU!”


Werner: “Well, yes, I feel the same way, but we will be removing all the important belongings, and we’ll be able to build a new base very quickly.”


Hati: “Is it really like that?” Werner: “Yes, and it’s much more important to make sure the bad guys don’t take advantage of this place.”


Hati: “Hmmmm, well, anyways. I can’t wait to get to the Capital! I want to eat a freshly baked dried ration bread!”


Werner: “If you’re going to eat something straight out of the oven, it’ll be better to try regular bread.”


Hati: “Hmm?” Werner: “It will most likely be better than dried ration bread. At the very least, I like regular bread more than dried ration bread.”


Hati: “Really?! I can’t believe there would be anything more delicious than the dried ration bread!!”


And we finished our breakfast.


I will have to start preparing to demolish the Research Lab.


Werner: “Falcon No. 1, are you feeling tired? I’m in no hurry to move to the Capital, so if you are tired, you can stay here for 2 or 3 more days.”


“FaRU-FaRU!”


Falcon No. 1 spread its wings confidently as if to assure me that it was in good condition.


Because its wings were so large, it almost touched the lab’s ceiling.


Werner: “If you’re feeling well, I’m glad. Are you going back to Professor Kay now?” “FaRU!”


Werner: “Then take this with you.”


“Fa~RU!”


I gave him one of the Barrier Generators, and Falcon No. 1 placed it in his pouch.


Werner: “I should probably write a letter too, but it’s too much trouble. My Master would be able to understand my situation by just looking at the Barrier Generator.”


“FaRU”


And I began preparing the explosives to blow up the Research Lab.


I placed all the important things into a Magic Bag that I invented.


Once that was done, I set the explosives that I designed for mining purposes all over.


After placing about 10 of these, Hati spoke up.


Hati: “Do you really need that many bombs? Those bombs are extremely powerful, and your research lab is so small.”


Werner: “Since my Master asked that I leave no trace of it, I can’t just blow it up regularly.”


Hati: “Oh really?”


I placed another 10 explosives totaling 20 now, and then made some adjustments.


I made sure that the heat and blast wave will consolidate so the Research Lab will reach extremely hot temperatures.


Hati: “My Lord, I was just thinking…..” Werner: “What is it?” Hati: “If it’s my Lord, you do not have to use these bombs and can take care of this with your Spells, no?” Werner: “I can, but wouldn’t that be much more tiring? And we also have a lot of bombs I made in the past. I thought it would be a good opportunity to be able to use it all up.”


Hati: “I seeーー”


“FaRU”


Once the preparations were complete, we left the underground research lab.


We walked towards the direction of the Capital for a while, and after there was some good distance between us and the labーー


Werner: “Okay, let’s detonate the devices.”


Hati: “I’m looking forward to it!”


“FaRU~FaRU”


Werner: “3… 2… 1… …….detonate!”


ーー<KABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!>


A pillar of fire stood up from where the Research Lab once stood.


A moment later, the blast reached us.


Hati: “FUOOOOOOO!!”


“FAAAARUUUUU!!”


Both Hati and Falcon No. 1 shrank with surpriseーー


Werner: “Don’t worry.”


I turned on the Barrier Generator as soon as I detonated the explosives.


The Barrier that stood up did not even budge from the massive blast that rolled over us.


Hati: “ThーThat’s amazing! The blast from the bomb and the barrier were both incredible!”


“Fa, FaRU~”


Werner: “Thank you. It’s a little embarrassing to say it since I made it, but this Barrier Generator is really useful.”


Hati: “It is a revolutionary invention!!”


“FaRU-FaRU”


Both Hati and Falcon No. 1 kept complimenting me.


We all returned to where the blast started, and after confirming that the Research Lab was completely obliterated, we began walking towards the Capital.


“Fa~RU~”


Falcon No. 1 came back to confirm the results of the explosion, and then after bowing a few times, flew off.


It’s probably going back to where my Master is.


Werner: “Be careful on your way back, Falcon No. 1!”


Hati: “Come back and visit us anytime~”


“Fa-FaRU~”


Since Falcon No. 1 was a Giant Eagle, it flew very quickly.


Before long, it was too far to see.


Hati: “It was cute, and it will feel lonelier without it.”


Werner: “Yeah, but I’m sure we’ll meet it again.”


Hati: “My Lord, it made me think after seeing Falcon No. 1, but if Hati gets bigger, I can fly you to the Capital.”


Werner: “................yeah, that’s true.”


If Hati at her full height travels to the Capital, all the people who witness her coming will be frightened.


But it’s still a 5 hour walk to the Capital. Being able to travel faster is extremely alluring right now.


Werner: “If we fly all the way to the Capital, we’ll scare the citizens. Can you fly me to a location that is about a 1 hour walk to the Capital?” Hati: “Leave it to Hati!”


And Hati grew back to her full size, and riding on her back, we traveled to a location close to the Capital.
