Cave King – 32

PAGE 1

Should I interfere and find out what was going on?

 

That’s when it happened.

I could hear people shouting on the battleship.

 

I looked towards the sea in surprise.

A fleet of nearly twenty ships was heading in our direction.

 

The orcs who hadn’t been caught yet were also shouting now.

They’re alive. They caught up. That’s what they were shouting.

 

So, I guess they were the rest of the Korbas fleet.

But I wasn’t sure why they had been late.

 

Kamyu grinned as well.

 

“There’s been a shift in power… About 2,000 reinforcements will come to this island.”

“Tsk. It doesn’t matter how many there are. The result is the same. We’ll be feasting on your flesh tonight.”

 

Erevan declared without a hint of dread.

However, Ashton seemed more hesitant.

 

“Th-that ship…”

 

Ashton’s crest was ‘Clairvoyance.’

The crest granted him enhanced eyesight.

And kobolds already had much better eyesight than humans.

And so he was able to see the crew, when everyone else could not.

 

Erevan laughed boisterously.

 

“What’s this, Ashton!? As if some puny reinforcements matter! You’re even weaker than I thought!”

“Yo-you have it wrong, Erevan! The crew on those ships…they are not alive!!”

“Eh? What are you talking about?”

 

As Erevan looked puzzled, Kamyu burst into laughter.

 

I wasn’t able to see if Ashton was telling the truth or not.

However, there was one thing that was strange. All of the ships had sails that were torn to a shocking degree.

And it wasn’t as if they were using oars to propel the ships… It was difficult to understand how they were able to move at such a speed.

 

“Damn it, I don’t know what you’re talking about… But if you want to surrender, the time is now…”

 

It was as Kamyu was saying this. There was a deafening crash.

 

One of the newly arrived ships had smashed into Kamyu’s battleship.

 

“…What?”

 

He became speechless.

 

Still, it was possible for ships to hit each other by accident.

However, this time the ships were clearly smashing against the battleship from both sides.

 

And like that, the battleships cracked in half.

And then arrows began to fly from the ships that were supposed to be his.

 

“No-no…this can’t be happening…why? Why?”

 

Kamyu held his head.

In the meantime, the other ships were still approaching.

 

We were just as confused.

Erevan said,

 

“Wh-what does this mean!?”

“…It is hard to believe, but the orcs on those ships have their flesh and bones exposed… They are undead.”

 

Ashton explain. Kamyu shrieked.

 

“How dare you tell lies!”

 

He quickly pulled out a telescope from his shirt and looked towards the ships.

 

“N-no…”

 

The sight that greeted him was unbearably tragic, and he crumbled to the ground.

 

“…Hahahahaha…I see! Yes, this must be a dream!! In the first place, why the hell would there be a goblin and kobold here!? So that monster was also just a dream!! Ahahahahaha!!!”

 

Kamyu shouted madly.

At this point, all he could do was laugh eerily.

 

…Monster?

What did he mean by that?

 

As I wondered this, there was a sudden, gigantic burst of water from the sea.

A pillar of water that was wider than any other the ships had appeared, and the surrounding ships were capsized.

 

And what then appeared in the midst of the water…

 

“A Le-Leviathan!?”

 

A mythical creature that was thin and long like a snake and had glimmering blue scales…

The Leviathan had arrived.

  1. ‘A wild leviathan appear’

    Will the leviathan tamed by the MC or will it became the food fir tye group?

    Anyway tx for the chapter

  2. Player three joins the party. Actually going by the clues so far, the Leviathan was the first player, and the orcs ran away from it.
    Thanks for the chapter! Awesome translation! God bless you!

  3. Aw I was hoping it’d be a kraken just so they’d make a “Release the Kraken!” joke.

    So will he beat up the Leviathan and turn it into a summon like it’s Final Fantasy?

  4. The last of the orc tribe as well? What the hell is going on on the continent? And those undeads, this leviathan, is he a magic kind perhaps?
    Why attack them now of all times? and why did the orcs run towards this place instead of the continent? The sole place they kew they could land on? These reefs are known to be dangerous yet they plunged straight in without even hesitating.
    Then again, maybe they saw the world tree in the distance and decided to take their chances?

    Thank you for the chapter and the treat. (^_^)/
