With this newfound determination, Eculate returns with a group of elven warriors.
Seeing a group of warriors rushing in, the Doll tribe does not hide their disgust.
“Long ears…” (Doll Tribesman)
Some of them spat disparagingly,
“The Elves and the Dolls are incompatible, aren’t they?” (Sicily)
Princess Sicily sighs.
Chloe, the maid, explains.
“The Doll clan a warrior race and the Elves are a learned race. We live in the same forest, but we try to stay out of each other’s way.” (Chloe)
“They are like brothers who live in the same palace but don’t speak to each other.” (Sicily)
Sicily says in a self-deprecating manner.
“It’s not too far off. You can liken them to a rascal and an eager student in the same class. The Elves think the Dolls are savages and the Dolls think the Elves are weak.” (Chloe)
Then, the chief’s daughter appeared.
Lululucca then says.
“It’s not what we think. It’s a fact.” (Lululucca)
The words were harsh, but they seemed to have no malicious intent.
“Behold, those elves. They are so skinny and scrawny. They look like dried potatoes.” (Lululucca)
Pointing to an elven warrior.
“They certainly lack muscle strength. It’s a good thing they’re wearing leather armor. Most of them don’t even wear armor. And they have no weapons.” (Lululucca)
“I don’t think they’ll be able to fight like that.” (Lululucca)
Eculate protests against Lululucca, who gives her frank opinion.
“If you’d just shut up and listen to me, you could have said all you wanted! Elves don’t use their sustenance for building muscles, unlike the Dolls. They use their energy for cultural and intellectual things.” (Eculate)
Eculate says with her eyebrows raised.
“There are warriors among the Elves who can match the Dolls, though we didn’t bring them this time.” (Eculate)
“Why didn’t you bring them?” (Lululucca)
“Why not? We can’t leave the village empty. Besides, the Strategist told me to do it.” (Eculate)
“Leon said?” (Everyone)
Everyone’s eyes were directed at me.
“Yes, I ordered it. I ordered that the elves be reinforced by spirit users, not warriors.”
“Since Leon-sama is a man of great ingenuity, you must have some kind of plan, right?” (Sicily)
“It’s not that big of a deal, but I have a strategy that will make it easier to get rid of the ogre without fail. I need them to carry it out.”
That said, Lululucca and Eculate nodded.
“I will not deny your wisdom at this time. You’re a military strategist in the Libra Division.”
Eculate agrees reluctantly.
“I’ve seen Leon’s ingenuity with my own eyes. And if my beloved fiancé, Chloe, trusts him, then I should trust him as well. Families need to trust each other.” (Lululucca)
“I don’t know if we can be a family, but I trust you too, your skills as a warrior and your noble heart as the daughter of the chieftain.”
She nodded her head and shook my hand again. It was a supple but powerful handshake.
After winning the trust of both the Doll and the Elves, I announced my strategy.
“We will now split our forces in two and head for the Ogres’ lair.”
“Do you still want to divide this number further?” (Sicily)
Princess Sicily looked at me quizzically.
The number of warriors here is more than a hundred. All of them are powerful, but they are not many.
It seemed like a bad idea to divide such a small number of soldiers.
However, what may seem like a bad move can turn out to be a clever move if you change your perspective.
In order to show the result of this, I instructed Eculate.
“You are to select and lead the elves you brought with you that are good at spirit magic.”
“You had such an order before I returned to my village.” (Eculate)
“I don’t know what we’re going to do, but at the rate, we’re going, it’s going to be a big undertaking. All right, what do you want me to do?” (Eculate)
I whispered to Eculate some insight.
The elf, who has a cute face, seems to have sensitive ears. So, I speak normally instead.
“–My strategy is this.”
In short, I want you to lead the spirit users to the lake in the Bana Forest and set up a trap. She was puzzled when she heard about my plan, but she soon realized the purpose of my plan.
“Nice one, Leon. Such a clever–Oh, excuse me.” (Eculate)
“It’s good. Well, it’s actually quite clever, if I may say so myself.”
“For the enemy, your wisdom is a real threat, but for your allies, it’s the opposite. You’re a very dependable Strategist.” (Eculate)
“Let me hear those words again when we win.”
“Yes. If you don’t win, nothing will start. On the contrary, if you win, something might start. Something from the elves.” (Eculate)
“Yes, something will change. I hope it’s a change for the better.”
I also shook hands with Eculate.
“I’ll be waiting for you on the lake. Leon.” (Eculate)
“I’m sure we’ll meet again soon.”
“By the way, a boy I almost had a crush on once took 170 years to reunite with me after he said that line.” (Eculate)
How old are you, I almost said, and then stopped. Elves are very long-lived creatures. Appearances can be deceiving. And I thought it would still be rude to ask a woman how old she was, even if she was an elf.
She laughed and said, “You’re quite a gentleman.” She giggled and led the elven spirit users away.
After watching her back, I moved on to organizing the Doll tribe.
The Doll tribe were fierce warriors, but the ones left in the village were mainly old soldiers and young soldiers.
They were either very experienced or extremely inexperienced. They would not be able to exert themselves to the fullest if they were operated in the usual way.
This was my turn as a Military Strategist.
