I Was Being Followed
One hour later.
I said goodbye to everyone that helped me in Rikardo, and then I left the town.
As usual, I rode on top of the Proud Wolf as I made my way to the town of Boguinea…
But on the way, the slime on my shoulder said in a worried voice,
‘Something is chasing after us!’
The slime said as it looked behind us.
While I couldn’t see it with my own eyes—I could use ‘Shared Senses’ to borrow their vision. And so I was able to confirm that something was chasing us.
But then again, I was on an ordinary road.
If someone happened to be headed in the same direction, it might look like they were chasing us.
‘Are you sure it’s not just a coincidence?’
‘It’s not! It’s chasing after us!’
It seemed like the slimes were seeing something that I wasn’t.
…I would have to check it out.
‘Proud Wolf. Slow down a little.’
The Proud Wolf said as he dropped the pace.
And then—whatever it was that was following us, also started to move at a slower pace.
It seemed to be someone riding a horse. So this adjustment of speed was rather impressive.
‘Proud Wolf. Now go faster.’
The Proud Wolf returned to his original speed.
And then our pursuer also started to ride faster.
‘…It’s settled then. Someone is chasing us.’
The problem was, who was this person?
I could just stop somewhere and have a look… But it also seemed dangerous to meet our pursuer when there was no one else around.
But then again, our pursuer slowed down when we did, so the chances of us meeting were not high.
At least for now, the enemy seemed satisfied with just watching us.
It would be a good idea to find out who it was for now.
‘All right, I want about 100 of you to spit.’
‘What are you going to do?’
‘You’re going to do some scouting while I use magic to keep you hidden.’
