Kumo Desu ga, Nani ka? Blood 3

Blood 3.
Meet the spider.


Blood 3 Encounter with the spider

It was the time when I gone out of the town for the first time.
I was protected carefully because I'm the eldest daughter of the town chief, and have not gone out of the town before.
It's decided to take me along under the pretext of showing me to the grandparents in the mother's home in the countryside.

The outside world for the first time in my life.
However, it's not so far to the target town.
One day of being jolted in the carriage.
I arrived at the town slightly smaller than the town where I was born and raised, and met my grandparents for the first time there.

They are young to be called as grandparents.
Well, mother is considerably young too, so the marriageable age might be early in this age.
My grandparents were the nobles who governed the town too.
Like that, we spent several days with my grandparents, and we got on our way back home.

On the way back, the incident happened.

We were attacked by the bandits.
The number of the other party is six people.
Because the number is little to attack the wife and the daughter of the feudal lord of the town, I can expect that it's an attack without plan.
It's a simplistic attack that they attacked us because the carriage that happened to pass looks good.

The problem is we can't deal with such a simplistic attack.
The number of guard here is four people whereas the number of the other party is six people.
Although I heard that such bandit activity is becoming active from the rumor, I didn't think that they will attack in the middle of such a highway.
I realized that here was the world with the common sense totally different from Japan with my body.

Even though the guards fight hard, they begin to be gradually overwhelmed by the difference in number.
And, one person was cut by the bandit.

「Merazofis!?」

Mother shouts instinctively in the carriage.
The cut guard is the butler who serve mother since childhood.
They seemed to be the relationship like the childhood friend, and his loyalty to mother is high.
Because mother is an natural airhead, she might not notice it, but Merazofis loves mother as the opposite sex.
The feeling is changed into loyalty and he served mother.

Such a loyal retainer was cut.
Blood spreads on the ground.
The man who moved until a short time ago falls down and stops moving.
The blood that began to flow looked like Merazofis's vitality.

*Gulp*

My throat sounds for some reason.
I think that it's probably the fear that death approaches closely.
If the guards are annihilated, next is us.
Because mother is still young, she might be kidnapped.
Because I'm a baby, I might be disposed quickly.
Although they might made use of me for the ransom, I think that it won't turn out good.

Even though my second life is starting from now on after being reincarnated specially, will I die in such a place?
No.
I'm scared.
I don't want to die.
I still want to live.
Someone, help!

Although it doesn't mean that it heard the shout of my heart, it appeared suddenly.
One of the bandits fell while dripping blood suddenly.
A pure white spider was there.
A spider that's about 1 meter that's unbelievably big in the Earth.

I heard it from the talk.
There's monster in this world.
I thought that it was not strange even if such a thing exist because there's magic.
But, the one that appeared in front gave me a realistic fear unlike the one that I heard.

Dumbfounded in the same way as me, the body of the bandits split in two beautifully with a swing of the spider's arm.
The entrails scatter, and a ghastly scene jumps into my eyes.

*Gulp*

My throat sounds again.
That should be the part that I feel nausea.
I retort myself.

While doing that, the spider monster defeats one bandit with some kind of magic, and the remaining two were taken care quickly.
I can expect that the Soil Magic was barely used.
Because something brown flew at high speed, and shot through the bandit's head.
But, I don't know the remaining two.
When they tried to run away, their movement stopped suddenly, and they fall down like that.
I don't even know what it did.

The spider turns here calmly.
Tension ran among us.
Next is our turn.
We who seemed to be defeated by the bandits.
And, the monster that annihilated the bandits in an instant.
There was no possibility to survive.

The guards point the swords to the spider.
Their bodies tremble with fear little by little.
They should also understand it that they can't win.
But still, they try to accomplish their duty as the guards until the end.

The spider doesn't come attacking at once, and seemed to see our state.
The cold red eyes look around the surroundings.
The eyes are fixed to Merazofis who fell down.

The spider that approaches Merazofis.
Immediately after having thought what it will do, the spider activates magic, and heals Merazofis's wound.
Treatment Magic.

「Don't tell me, Messenger-sama?」

Mother goes outside the carriage in a hurry.
Carrying me.

「Seras-sama! It's dangerous!」

Although the guard urges mother to return to the carriage, mother ignores him and approaches the spider.
The spider turns around.
I feel the illusion that all the eight eyes seemed to concentrate on me.

Chill runs through my whole body.
I'm scared.
What is this?
Is it fine for such a creature to exist?
The presence that seems to scatter fear just by being there.
Does such a monster come out frequently in this world?
If that's the case, I might have reincarnated into an outrageous world.

「Are you Messenger-sama?」

I remember the word in my memory to mother's words.
Messenger, if I'm not wrong, was it the existence that serve the Goddess as the attendant in the Goddess Religion that mother believed in?
The Goddess is accompanied by attendants of various races like the deep wise man or the green guardian remain in the myth with chuunibyou nicknames.
Among that, there's the spider that sewed the clothes of the Goddess.
Seeing from mother who believed in the Goddess Religion, does this spider that saved them looked like the Messenger?

I think that this ominous presence is the exact opposite with the sacred Goddess-sama no matter how I think.
Somehow, this spider seems to be settled as the Messenger in mother.
In addition, mother who give thanks and the scripture of prayer.
The spider pays attention to such mother.

「Appraisal?」

Mother reacts in surprise, and mutters so.
Is it the name of the skill?
It seems to be convenient, so can I learn it?

《Currently you have 75000 skill points.
The skill 『Appraisal』 can be acquired by spending 300 skill points.
Do you want to acquire it?》

The voice of God is heard suddenly.
While I lost consciousness for an instant there, the spider has vanished.
Although mother shouted 「Please wait!」 to the back of the spider that ran off at a terrible speed, as for me, I prefer it to go away as it is.
My body loses strength after becoming stiff by the fear.

《Skill proficiency reached. Acquired skill 『Fear Resistance LV1』》

Like that, I was able to survive safely.
But later, because the spider settled down close to the town where I lived, a disturbance will happen again.

  2. I think you should change messenger to apostle

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Apostle is the chuunibyou term Christians like to use.Folklore and other religions feel that Messenger term is good enough for divine beast, divine hero, and gods themselves. Mercury/Hermes is the god of messengers.

      Delete
    2. But apostle sounds more appropriate for a god

      Delete
    3. Laclongquan it's just as you say.
      No need for Christian references in a story like this one. It would only cheapen it. Definitely no need for chuunibyou shit.

      Delete
    4. I have no idea what you are smoking but Apostle is greek/latin for messenger. While there is a christian association with the term it is used in most western religions in some form or another. As most fantasy settings are set in fictional western style fantasy settings (including this one) and most fantasy style religions are again based off of western style religions or dnd style religions, then it makes perfect since to use the Term Apostle, especially in consideration of long term use in D&D.

    5. Ah ha…… Hahaha… HeeheeBWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

      Yes yes, bring in the Apostles. Then bring the Evangelions to fight them. HahahaHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

      Amazing dumb people who don't get this is a Japanese novel, who don't know the connotations terms such as "apostle" have in Japan... they talk about ancient Greek and D&D, as if the Japanese gave a fuck about that. LOL funny haha hehe rofl...

      I dub thee "apostle head" for thy dedication to the apostolic cause. (BTW apostle is "shito" in Japanese, didya know that?)

      Delete
    6. She literally in this chapter that it was based on medieval Europe... So having it as "Apostle" is completely acceptable. No need to say eople are dumb

      Delete
    7. No need to accuse people of smoking drugs, either. That's a rather dumb way of arguing.

    4. Amazing demon army. Maou literally has split personality, 2 commanders are admins and 1 is human. or maybe Sophia bites him and make a Vampire? does Vampire count as demon?

  4. Wow so much happened to kumoko over such a short period of time for the others.

    Replies
    1. She attained godhood when the others were still in diapers (check the earlier chapters for reference), although I'm pretty sure it wasn't diapers, but the main point is she aged much faster as a monster

      Delete
    2. She was also born half a year earlier than them because she came from an egg.

      Delete
    3. Yeah but half a year after Kumoko becomes a god, her classmates were still trying to learn how to walk.

      Talk about slow :|

      Delete
    4. It means humans are really weak, like what Ronant says. Well, in our world, humans are the strongest.

      Delete
    5. If shiro accepts sofia as a servant does she get a power boost? Same question for D and shiro...what do you guys think

      Delete
    6. Well humans are the strongest here only because we use weapons.
      .
      I don't think she will get power, unles D makes a strong skill to her too. In the other hand she will receive protection and they can teach her magic, skills and how to live in that world.

      Delete
    7. No, even some other animals use weapons. Humans are strongest because of their need to control their environment. From their dens to the food they eat.

  5. In the end, something like impulse control doesn't exist for a person like me. Wonder how long until she starts to drink?

  9. why was appraisal 100 for the mc as a baby but 300 for this baby?

    :D also ty for all the chapters, i dont talk often but its been fun reading them

    ReplyDelete

    1. The prices isn't the same for everybody.
      It's more like the better your affinity with it the cheaper it is.

      Similar like the ruler skill that are extremely far from her personality are more expensive.
      " humility" for example.
      That doesn't mesh well with pride

      Delete
    2. For example; for Shun and Kumoko, the price of Appraisal was 100.
      For Sophia it's 300
      For Katia/Kanata, it was 1000.

    3. the more dumb the cheaper Appraisal?

    1. "How did the Green Man die?"
      "It was very strange, you see, he was winning when all of a sudden this big box on wheels went by very fast and hit him..."

      The Green Man and Truck-sama have a natural affinity. :P

    2. I have no idea what this is a reference too...

  12. I'm a bit disappointed that we didn't get to read about Shiro, but as long as we get to stick with 'the vampire child' for a while, I won't mind. What annoys me the most is when we don't get to stick with one story line, but jump to the next all the frickin time..

    Either way, you said three chapters, and here they are, so thank you for the chapters! xDD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This story line goes up until she meets her again and maybe through their adventures

      Delete
    2. I'm pretty sure "strange woman and dangerous woman" is when they meet again

      Delete
    3. I thin the Blood storyline will catch up soon with Kumoko's, then they will merge. Then comes the Ogre until they reach the elf-human battle's timeline.

      Delete
    4. Yes strange woman and dangerous woman probably refer to Ariel and shiro

      Delete
  13. Thank you as always for your hard work.

    I wonder how a mere human soldier like Merazofis ended up as a general in the demon army. Someone weak wouldn't cut it, even with a recommendation from Kumoko. Some crazy leveling up happened here.

    1. i suppose he will be turned into vampire and became a devil too.

  14. Wonder what happens if she drinks from ariel or shiro.

    1. She will go Super Saiyajin. (^_~)

  15. The author should've been doing THIS more often. Introducing characters in Kumoko's arcs, THEN giving those characters their own side stories. This feels more natural, and makes more sense to see it from the main story's side first.

    ReplyDelete
  16. HAHAHAHA! well your not wrong anymore. In a way Kumo is a subordinate of the Goddess D. And in the future there are Attendants which is Her and the Oni

  17. Thank you for the chapter and all the hard work.
