As I walked along with her for a while, the sight of the anthill’s interior was replaced by the original cave rock.
That was my cave. A lot of firearms were sitting there. The sight of all those rugged weapons lined up was enough to make me feel relieved. A home.
Thankfully, they left my room untouched.
Suddenly, I feel the cold air brush against my skin, and I turn around.
From the main entrance of the base, a straight pathway led directly to the outside. I could see the sunlight at the back. It seemed that the outside air was flowing in from there.
Casually, I went outside, attracted by the sun.
The sudden increase in the amount of light made my eyes squeeze.
My vision, which had been momentarily blind, slowly adjusted.
There was a large open space.
-A hawk is flying at the same level as my eyes.
It’s so high that I can see the entire surrounding terrain. The view is magnificent, overlooking the cloud-covered mountains in the distance.
I sit down on the edge, which has no handrail and throws my legs over the edge. Looking down, I felt as if I were being sucked toward the ground. So this is what Tamahyun was all about.
Titania sits down next to me.
I hugged her slim shoulders, and she leaned into me. The warmth of her in my arms relieves me from the bottom of my heart.
The cool breeze that blew past me felt as if it was rewarding me for my work.
–Finally, I’m alone with Titania. It had been a long time.
The winter sunshine surrounding us blessed us with warmth. The sensation of time flowing peacefully is truly something to remember.
As I took a deep breath, a mysterious wooden cup was presented to me along with a mysterious brown liquid. It seems to have been brought to me by a giant spider. Thank you.
I took a sip of it without hesitation.
Unbelievably, it tastes like cocoa. I gulped it down.
So with the distant background that seems to suck me in, Hmm finally a break…..
Oh no, …….
Oh no, this…….
It’s not good. It’s too flashy.
This place is just a huge target.
While aliens like to invade on foot, humans like to destroy things from a distance.
This is like saying “We’re here, shoot all you want.” Such a big target is even much easier to hit than a target for training. Even from the other side of the mountain, they can shoot at us a hundred times with a single convoy. Maybe they don’t even need observers?
Of course, no one expected us to build a castle in just one week. Her leadership skills went beyond my expectations. Including the execution.
It’s a very impressive castle. I was honestly impressed. This view is awesome.
But you know what’s scary about humans who have taken over the sky warfare?
Fire power, the main power of mankind, comes from the sky.
The aliens have already understood this, so when they set up their positions, they use a mysterious defensive barriers, mysterious rays of light, and other mysterious invisible powers. They can even pull down satellites. Alien air defenses are a hundred steps ahead of humanity, and we have never been able to break through them.
On the other hand, if humans can secure the sky, we can fight the aliens even better. Disabling the enemy’s air defense capability is a long-cherished dream of our soldiers. If we can do that, we can turn the tide of war.
–There was once a time when we formed a death squad and infiltrated deep into the enemy territory to destroy their air defense system, but more than half of our men died, including my partner. I remember it all so well.
Well, anyway, the aliens can intercept missiles and aircraft like that without any trouble, but can Titania and her team do it? If they can’t, humanity’s air power is a threat even to insects.
It’s true that this anthill seems to be as hard as concrete. However, it’ll be tough if we’re attacked by dozens of missiles. What if we just evacuate underground? But if we allow airplanes to reach us, they’ll drop bombs that can penetrate the ground. We will be blown to pieces from the inside.
Artillery is not to be trifled with either. There are artillery shells with thick shells that can easily shoot through concrete. It’s called a special penetrating shell. If hundreds of them rained down on us, we wouldn’t be able to withstand them
There’s also a gunship called the
It’s not a metaphor, it’s actually a tank that rains shells down from the sky. It’s amazing. It’s not like a howitzer. A tank cannon flies at the theoretical limit of the initial velocity that can be achieved with gunpowder, so the destructive power is extraordinary. Of course, the Dragonet is also equipped with a howitzer and can fire a large number of rocket missiles. If it keeps circling at high altitudes bombarding us, there is nowhere to hide. It’s scary.
When the ground troops heard the dragonets had arrived, some of them dropped to their knees and waved their hands in the air, saying, “The Dragon God has arrived!” Some of the soldiers clasped their hands and cried out to the sky. It is said that on the battlefield where the Dragonet has achieved a comeback victory, a shrine in the shape of a dragon appears behind its departing back. That’s how immense its ground control ability is. It is truly the god of the air support aircraft world.
There’s also a plane that flies around with a crazy 40mm Gatling gun. It’s called the
By the way, the monster Gatling gun has a nickname, It’s called
The sound of the incendiary armor-piercing shells firing at a rate of 4000 rounds per minute was like the sound of a duck’s voice. By the time you hear it, though, you’ve already been reduced to dust without a shred of flesh left.
You see? Anyway, if we surrender the sky to mankind, we’re in trouble.
–Ah, big mistake.
I’m a professional. I shouldn’t have been so formal like Diamond said. I have to go back now and ask Lydia to give me the pendant after I make her bow to me with her forehead touching the ground while ramming her from behide
I need to have a long talk with Titania about our air defense capabilities.
I’m sure there’s some sort of countermeasure, but I don’t know about it, so I’m really worried. ………… Hmm?
–Maybe she doesn’t know ……?
She doesn’t know!
Geez, I think I figured it out why.
Titania, are you sure you don’t know much about the human race?
If you were in jail with me, it’s possible. ……
You don’t think about air defense, do you ……?
When Titania made eye contact with me, her heart racing, she tilted her head and smiled.
–Oh no, no, no, no, …….
I have to tell her what this place is like. It’s a war zone.
She slipped her cheek into my arm. Titania with a heart mark and a wet look in her eyes. I can’t help but get an erection – no, I’m in full-on sex mode, but that’s not the point.
Reading the romantic air, I picked up Diamond that had been quietly sitting on my back and gave him a shove. Please pass on my message as soon as possible.
Titania glances at Diamond with a frustrated look on her face for a while after being pushed. Diamond, too, does a desperate banzai squat on her hands.
Then she squinted her eyes, put her finger to her lips and moaned ……, then turned back to me.
She rubbed her own arms and shake her body. A gesture that told she was cold.
Next, she put her palms to her open mouth and yawne ……. She put her hands together and placed them on her cheeks, then turned her face down in a restful sleep pose. Super cute.
It’s cold …… and sleepy …….
I see. ～～～～
By the way, Diamond also said it was cold, so let’s go home early and go to bed.
At the time, I thought she was just being lazy, but then I realized that …… some insects hibernate!
This anthill castle also serves as a shelter for the winter!
Oh good grief. We won’t be able to leave this place for the next few months…….!?
That’s a close call. I’m so glad we were able to reach an unofficial ceasefire agreement with Dantalion. ……
This is not a war at all. That’s why Titania agreed to the proposal so easily.
That was the manager’s suggestion, according to the conversation. I put my hands together and bow down in the direction of Faymbaum. Merci beaucoup, manager.
–Let’s camouflage ourselves. At least.
I want to at least disguise this strange anthill castle. Also, the fireflies are stored inside. It would be too suspicious if the entire bare rock pile was glowing.
I repeated this and that gesture desperately, and just after I sensed that Titania understood me somehow.
A familiar sound reached my ears from afar.
For the soldiers, it was an exciting sound. If I heard this sound, it would be the start of a counterattack or the end of the mission.
But for me, right now, it was just a sound of despair that made my eyes gloomy.
