LOTCH 35 To survive from now on.

Will be busy up to mid October at the very least.
Btw it’s my birthday today yay.
Might not make it for the schedule.

Please do donate if you got some spare change.

Donation will NOT have any effect on the release frequency for now though it do will motivate me to keep on the translation alive.


Currently I’m at cafeteria eating lunch. Musha musha(munching sound).
Todays’ menu is wild plants cream stew and rye bread. Aah, I want rice…. As expected I might be able to eat something like paella or risotto if i go to near the Mediterranean sea. If I can I want soy sauce and miso to…. also raw fish and egg.
Silesian cuisine composed of mostly mushroom dishes for some reason. Like shitake or others. Sometimes there’s also mushroom in the pickles. Also, this pickled cabbage that looks like sauerkraut. There’s no trace of the vinegars’ umami, it’s just simply sour cabbage. I never though of this as delicious. Please give it to me raw instead. For some reason any menu comes with this. It’s like shredded cabbage that you got for free when you ordered a pork cutlet.

Although, even though I criticize the food in Silesia so much, I don’t especially hate the food of this country. Though I don’t like it either.

“Can I sit next to you?”

While saying that, Warta-san sat down without even waiting for my permission. Well it’s alright.

“Please do.”
“What’s with the long face.”

I’m not good with this person. She’s scary. And she’s scary. Incidentally she’s also scary. Mainly her face. I think she will be beautiful if she smile but, I never saw her smile.

“I’m feeling depressed now.”
“Why?”
“It’s because today there is swordsmanship class with Sara.”

No, really, it’s because Sara is very strict with me. Getting punched, kicked or shot with water ball is common occurrences. Thanks to that, I’ve been used to pain.

“Then should I be the one teaching swordsmanship?”
“No thanks.”

It seems like practice with you will also be tough. Because of your face.

“Too bad I can’t lure you.”
“Don’t talk like I’m an expensive fish to be lured.”

Unless there’s no wonderful bait I won’t be lured.

“So, is Warta-san is skipping your escort mission? I don’t see Her Highness Emilia.”
“I’m not skipping. I’m on a break.”

So she’s not skipping.

“Her Highness is currently with Malinowska-san. She’ll be fine.”
“Well if it’s Sara, she can kill 2 or 3 bears with her bare hands.”

Really she’s a scary person. I think she can kill someone just by staring at them.

“There’s also Nowak-kun.”
“….Who’s that?”
“Radoslaw-Nowak, or Radek as you called him.”

Aah, Radek was it? I already forgot his real name because I call him Radek all the time. Un. I remembered. Rasuto something da isn’t it.

“Rather, it’s not natural that Radek is with them.”
“….Is that so?”


If you didn’t read this at lazypioneer dot wordpress dot com it’s been stolen.
It kind of dampened my motivation that my work has been stolen.


Warta-san eyebrows moved a bit. Un, that’s something to be cautious of.
Wall,I think Radek won’t make that mistake. Probably. He’s a man who will keep his virginity at all time to the death. I think Radek can graduate anytime though. It;s such a waste of his good look. Give that face to me instead.

“Well, it’s probably alright. Because we can trust the upper body.”
“You seems a bit unease though.”

Radek-san, please do your best to survive from Warta-san. I’ll bring you a flower if you didn’t though.

“However, you do say things unsuitable for your age.”
“Is that so?”

Did you think the master of the house doesn’t suit the age of the house?

“Aah, you’re good at thinking things carefully. As expected of someone whose head is the only good thing.”
“Are you trying to sell a fight?”

Is there someone who will buy a fight knowingly? Can you sell it around Sara instead?

“I’m half praising.”
“…And the other half?”
“Amazed.”
“Is that so.”

I’m astonished that all 100% is good thing.

“There’s something I want to talk about with the smart you.”
“What is it?”

So everything up to now is just the opening performance.

“It’s about this country.”

What a grand topic.
However if you think about it carefully, it’s probably about the circumstances of Princess Emilia.

“The scope is too large.”
“Well, let’s narrow it down more. What do you think will happen to this country?”

I don’t think the scope is narrowed down at all…..

“How to say this.”

Which answer is safe. To be honest, I want to say [This country will be destroyed soon.] though.

“As for me, I think this country will be destroyed sooner or later.”

….Eh, you can say that?

“Oh, is that surprising to you? I though you will surely reach this conclusion quickly.”
“I’m still just 10 years old… aah no, I’ll be 11 soon. But, it’s still 11 years old you know.”

A week from now, it’s my 11th birthday. However I forgot about it until just now.

“11 years old is it? However I feels like you’re over 20 years old though.”
“I don’t understand what you mean.”
“Is that so. I don’t understand either.”

That was correct though Warta-san. Even though it’s actually over 30 years old not 20.

“Then, why do you think it’s going to be destroyed?”
“I think so. Though I don’t know when.”
“Can I hear the base for that?”
“Though I can say it, you’ve also noticed don’t you?”

What are you expecting from an 11 years old boy.

“Yoshi, I’ve a question for Walesa-kun who got 99 point in tactics. What do you think are the problematic points of the national defense of this country?”
“….That is.”

Tha’s because this country lack of soldiers.

The strength of Silesia Kingdom is 20 divisions in peace time. If 1 division is 10.000 people then it’s 200.000 people. It’s evenly placed in the border at the east, west north and south. In other word, only 5 divisions at each border.

Carlsberg Republic have 20 divisions on peace time, after it shifts to military regime, it’s predicted to be 30 divisions.
As for “East Continental Empire” it’s much more, it’s said they have 400 to 500 divisions in peace time. Because it’s a wide country, it’s dispersed but still, there’s about 20 divisions located in the border with Silesia even if you estimate it positively.
Furthermore, the border also touch the Livonia Union and Ostmark Empire. These countries also possessed many soldiers, it’s inevitable that Silesia will be defeated.

For Silesia Kingdom, the size of the military is too small compared to the border line.
However, military expansion is not possible. Even if you want to expand the military, there’s no economic base to support it. What’s needed for this country is domestic reformation…. but it might cease to exist before it succeeds.

“I agree. This country is currently at the edge of a cliff already. With just a little push it will fall down to the abyss.”

However Silesia still survives for some reason. Though the breathing is faint.

“Why, do you think this country isn’t destroyed yet?”
That’s… as expected to be a buffer nation?”

Buffer nation.
It’s a country located between 2 great powered nation to prevent them to collide head on, it’s basically a wall.

Silesia is surrounded by great nation like Ostmark Empire, East Continental Empire and Livonia Union. Although all these countries participate in the anti-Silesia Pact, originally their relationship is not good. Because there is a common enemy called Silesia, they allied to fight it.

So, what will happen if Silesia actually destroyed? How will it be divided to these nation?
The answer is easy.

“With Silesia as the battlefield, these 3 country will start a war. It will involve all citizens of Silesia.”

Warta-san declared it coldly.

 

 

Before we notice, the stew is also cold. Because it’s a waste, I ate all of it, though it’s unappetizing.

I wonder what will happen to this country.

        *Imagine having to feed Firo*

        *Imagine Firo’s loli form*

        Unfortunately, I have neither the budget to feed you, nor the weird fetish necessary to lock a big bird/loli in my basement.
