Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 649 – We cannot retreat (5)

Choi Han and the two-headed snake were in an intense battle. Alberu’s side seemed to be at a standstill.

However, the battlefield wasn’t the problem for Raon.

The eighth unranked monster… And the first unranked monster…

Raon stared at the large monsters that were no longer sculptures before turning his head.

“…Human.”

“Haaa……haaaaa…haaaaa.”

Cale’s breath was hot and heavy and his body was covered in dry blood.

“…Human, what’s wrong?”

Raon grabbed a corner of the blanket and brought it up to Cale’s nose. Cale’s nose was bleeding.

“This is weird. This is very weird.”

He usually showed some signs of healing at this point when he fainted like this in the past. But it was different this time.

His injuries were closing very slowly unlike usual. There were no changes even when he poured a potion on him.

He also had a terrible fever and his nose and ears kept bleeding.

Raon thought Cale might die from loss of blood. Raon wasn’t the only one worried about this.

– Cale, Cale! Can you hear us?

– …No. You need to hurry up and wake up!

– Hey, Super Rock! Stop talking! Nobody other than the Vitality of the Heart do anything right now!

The ancient powers that tried to talk to the unconscious Cale stopped after hearing the Sound of the Wind’s voice.

The Vitality of the Heart that had been eaten, no, that became a part of the Indestructible Shield…

Only that power was faintly using its power with Cale’s heart at its focus so that it wouldn’t burden his body.

– …Apparently it’s not working.

The glutton priestess of the shield weakly mumbled.

– Apparently the restoration is not working well. It looks like Cale needs to wake up. I think we need Cale’s will.

The Super Rock made a comment.

– Cale. Please wake up. Please.

Unfortunate, neither the voices of the ancient powers nor Raon could reach Cale.

Raon clasped his two front paws together after seeing no movement in Cale’s body.

“Human.”

He felt as if he could see that scene again when he closed his eyes.

An instant.

Cale had pushed forward doing something even a Dragon could not do for a very short period of time.

The drops of blood that couldn’t even fall to the floor during that time created a red path behind him.

The drops of blood were so red that they looked like flower petals fluttering in the wind, but they were too terrible and painful to be called beautiful.

“…I……”

Raon clenched his paws even tighter.

‘If I was a little stronger…’

He was thinking that Cale wouldn’t have had to push himself so hard if that was the case.

‘If I was stronger, I, instead of the human-’

Raon shook his head.

“No.”

He released his clenched front paws.

“…I can’t have such thoughts.”

Raon was young but he knew.

“I am a great and mighty Dragon. I know what our human was thinking.”

This stupid human who never seemed to care about his own health definitely did not want Raon to do the same thing he just did.

That was why Raon couldn’t think that he could have stepped forward in Cale’s place if he was stronger.

What his human, what Cale wanted was not for Raon to sacrifice himself.

Cale had always said the following.

Fight with an overwhelming advantage.

If not, run and smack them from behind later.

Raon noticed the hidden meaning behind those words.

‘That’s the way to make sure nobody gets hurt.’

That was probably the message Cale wanted to convey.

Raon repeated something he said to himself many times in the past.

“…Whatever it is, I just need to learn it and grow stronger.”

Raon still had no idea about how to use his ‘present’ attribute. But that didn’t mean that he could just sit back and do nothing.

He needed to think fiercely and ponder about it.

Thinking and pondering would not hurt or kill someone no matter how hard it was. In fact, it might be a way to save their allies.

Oooooong– oooooo–

Black mana fluctuated around Raon. Raon took out every video communication device he had in his spatial dimension.

Raon spoke to Cale who had his eyes closed as if he was wiping away all of his uncertainties.

“Human. The crown prince, Choi Han, and goldie gramps are all here. They are fighting right now so one position is empty.”

Raon could not leave Cale’s side. Someone needed to protect him.

But he also couldn’t just sit here.

He realized something after having those thoughts.

“There’s nobody to lead right now.”

Usually, Cale, Alberu, Eruhaben or someone like that would be in the back controlling the flow.

However, there was nobody to do that right now.

“I don’t know how to lead. But I am very good at video communication.”

The spell he used the most while traveling with Cale had been the video communication spell.

Raon floated the video communication devices into the air.

His black mana surrounded them and started contacting them to different people.

– Hello Raon-nim. We have gathered the team to rescue the Dark Elves and are about to infiltrate the Endable Kingdom. Will the Elves send additional reinforc-, hmm? Is that Cale-nim behind you?

Tasha, the squad leader for the combined Elves and Dark Elves team headed toward the Endable Kingdom.

– Oh, my hoobae Dragon! Rasheel is currently beating Dorph to dea- eek! Isn’t that Cale Henituse?! Why does he look like that?!

A second one connected to a different battlefield.

Dodori had happily picked up the call from the Sez Kingdom’s Mount Nex where their allies were fighting against the Cats and Lions.

– Raon.

Third was to his mom Sheritt.

– Raon-nim! We can finally contact you!

– I was already planning on heading over, please wait!

There were also video communication devices connected to Saint Jack, excommunicated priestess Cage… Raon contacted everybody he knew.

Raon didn’t know how to lead.

But there was something he did know.

“Information needs to flow smoothly.”

There were large battles going on in multiple places. The important thing in such a situation was that the information about each battlefield was quickly delivered. It would let them rescue anybody who might be in big danger and allow others who have some breathing room to move to help someone else.

Kim Rok Soo and now Cale Henituse had lived a life on the rear support squad before moving to the vanguard attack squad.

On the other hand, Raon was moving from his usual position in the front attacking the enemies to a rear support position to do whatever was needed.

‘Human, don’t worry. I, the great and mighty Raon Miru am good at everything.’

Raon placed one of his front paws on Cale’s limp hand and turned toward the video communication devices looking at him.

Their allies scattered around were all looking at him. Raon could get a feel for how much pressure Cale must have felt while receiving these gazes.

Raon firmed his resolve and started talking.

“Tell me all of your current situation! I will tell you the situation here first!”

– Please wait!

– I have something to say as well, Raon-nim.

Raon’s gaze headed toward the people who shouted at him with urgency.

The former was Saint Jack while the latter was the Tiger Shaman Gashan who had received the video communication device from Dodori.

“I have something to say to you as well, Saint Jack! Hey Saint, are you able to come here?”

He needed the Saint’s healing ability.

It might be helpful to Cale.

Unfortunately, Saint Jack frowned and shook his head.

– …I think that will be difficult.

Jack started to explain why and after he heard Gashan’s explanation as well…

“That motherfucking White Star!”

Although Cale might have gasped after hearing that, Raon swore in the exact same manner as Cale before heading toward the terrace.

* * *

– Hey crown prince!

“Hmm?”

Clopeh Sekka, the Whales, Mary, the Bone Dragon, and Dragons. Alberu who could take a breath after the appearance of their allies turned toward the urgent voice.

He looked toward the City Hall’s terrace. He could faintly make out a black figure.

– I’m currently contacting our other allies!

Alberu’s eyes under the helmet opened wide after hearing Raon’s voice.

‘…Not bad.’

He had been worried about the flow of information now that even he was fighting, but Raon was filling that empty void.

– Bad news!

He soon frowned.

– I talked with Saint Jack! He said that Arm is invading the Mogoru Empire! There are Black Knights on black horses as well!

– Jack contacted the priests of the Sun God in other kingdoms and apparently they are all being attacked by unknown forces right now!

Arm and other unknown forces were attacking the different kingdoms throughout the Western continent.

“…I just thought they were running late.”

Alberu finally realized why the Jungle, the Whipper Kingdom, and others were not here yet and had not contacted them at all.

– Tiger Gashan said something too!

He then heard information about the Eastern continent.

– Mercenaries all around the Eastern continent contacted Bud and said that multiple kingdoms seemed to have activated large-scale teleportation spells!

‘Large-scale teleportation?’

Alberu’s eyes clouded over.

– I think they must have used those large-scale teleportation spells to come to the Western continent!

Alberu nodded his head.

– Do you think that the people attacking the different kingdoms here on the Western continent are a combination of the White Star’s subordinates and those kingdoms?

There were many kingdoms beside the Sez Kingdom that were allied with the White Star.

He could have requested troops from other kingdoms while preparing for the summoning ritual in the Sez Kingdom.

Alberu started to speak.

“…Motherfucking bastards. They used their heads this time.”

Archie, who was walking over, flinched and stopped.

“We will fight.”

Witira nonchalantly pointed toward the eighth monster.

Paseton was already charging toward the eighth monster, the Lion Dragon.

Alberu couldn’t even glance in Paseton’s direction as he was deep in thought.

The reason that the White Star was dragging in other kingdoms to attack the entire Western continent despite his now low number of forces…

“…It must be so that nobody can help the Roan Kingdom.”

Isolation.

His plan must be to isolate the Roan Kingdom.

And the reason he has not attacked the Roan Kingdom beside these monsters…

“…He thinks these two bastards are enough.”

The White Star must think that these monsters were enough to destroy not just Puzzle City but the entire Roan Kingdom.

Alberu raised his head to look at the people coming down from the sky.

“Fuck.”

He made eye contact with Clopeh Sekka.

“Sir Clopeh. Did your kingdom not get attacked?”

“We did get contacted about an attack from an unknown group of people. However, the Whales and Wyvern Knights are fighting against them. It’s okay for four of us to not be there.”

Smirk.

Clopeh started to smile. He took a video recording device out of his pocket. Everything was being recorded right now.

“I could not be left out on the path of a legend.”

‘…Crazy bastard.’

Alberu sighed after hearing Clopeh’s response.

It was at that moment.

Baaaaaang! Baaaaaang!

“Ugh!”

Alberu could see Archie being flung away by the Lion Dragon’s shield.

His face stiffened up.

He could see Witira biting down on her lip.

This strong future Queen of the Whales had an awkward expression on her face as she stood there with her whip in hand, unable to do anything.

The two of them made eye contact.

“…It looks like we need to get rid of the shield first.”

That shield was a problem for the Whales as well. They needed to get past that shield to attack the Lion Dragon’s body, but that first part was extremely difficult.

“…Ha.”

Alberu couldn’t help but sigh.

‘We can’t expect help from other kingdoms now.’

The entire Western continent was currently having trouble protecting themselves.

‘…We need to defeat these monsters with the strength of the Roan Kingdom alone.’

Alberu subconsciously tightened the grip on his spear.

At that moment…

“What are you thinking about?”

He turned his head after hearing a voice right behind him. The ancient Dragon was looking at the battlefield and Alberu with his eyes that were deep with experience fitting his age.

Swiiiiiish- Swiiiiiiiish-

He felt a gust of wind above him.

Alberu noticed a shadow above him just as the Lion Dragon noticed it as well and raised its head. The monster looked at the individual responsible for casting a shadow on it.

“Is it this bastard?”

The Dragon half-blood’s voice came out of the black Bone Dragon’s mouth as the Lion Dragon’s gold eyes looked into the slightly brighter gold eyes of the Dragon half-blood.

The Dragon half-blood had achieved what he wanted.

Although it was just bones, he was able to become a Dragon and look down at others from the sky.

Screeeech- screeeeeeech-

Numerous monsters of the Flying Skeleton Brigade made of white bones were flying over looking like clouds from the Northeast.

“There are only two enemies. There are hundreds of us. We will win if we push forward with our numbers advantage.”

Mary calmly stated in her GPS-like voice as she stood on top of the Dragon half-blood’s back.

    I started to think that the people from Cale’s world but from other parallel dimension will cross over toward their place somehow. Since they said they will meet again for sure, maybe, which i hope it will help with where Cale world in now. It sounds like mission impossible after hearing the large scale war. It is truly the end.

    Cale and Alberu got threatened by the eastern continent to stop moving around on their continent or it would be war, but they seem quite relaxed about going to war themselves!!
    The hold the WS has over the eastern continent is puzzling. While he has lived many lives and infiltrated them all, the fact that all these politicians and royals would agree to go to war with a whole continent on his urging is frightening. How could he guarantee them victory or gains? The other continent is the one who got in contact with them first (the WS’s secret organization attacked first but would they know? And if they did, they would know he failed, how can they trust him to succeed this time?) and has strength not inferior to their own, it’s crazy to attack all the countries of the western continent at once!! How much do they trust him, what benefits did they get from him?? The king of that mountain kingdom didn’t seem very informed about everything that was going on. None of the countries even knew about the Endable kingdom. Anyway, the WS does not care about the eastern continent. They’ll be in hot water after going against the western continent, but he won’t help them once he finished using them. They’ll be destroyed if his plans succeed anyway.
    I’m worried about where the WS is. Wherever that bastard shows up, it’ll be hard to handle. He’s stronger than the dragons after all. Maybe Mira can stop him from intervening in the fights but who would deal with the monsters then?? There can never be enough dragons… I wish they had that overwhelming strength to kill that WS and that Despair God while at it!!!!
    Thank you for the chapters!!!

      It is pretty ez to cast an illusion or fake smile. The eastern continent is basically just like you said cards that he is going to use. And one of them is also the Endable Kingdom. And that the white thing is gone is kinda sus, cuz he can or have tried to find the earth power, make something to kill Cale or he is preparing to come after this chapter. But I don’t think they will defeat him so easily even if Mira joins. But Cale still has that Watering Cane. Maybe Cotton will use it? And the Book of how to kill Death. Oh, and that little fire elemental! Chaos, destruction, fire!

      Didn’t he say that because he didn’t want the priests or mages to check his body that he was faking being in pain? (During the Moguru Empire Destruction arc or whatever.) Correct me if I’m wrong.

    2. Ventus Silens

      I think it is because you can’t heal yourself after you have used ancient power? Because it is something from nature or whatever? Isn’t it that’s why he said that he cant be healed by magic or potions?

      That was an excuse so the people didn’t find about the healing power. But he usually does not need them anyway.

    Ahh~ thanks for the translation (≧◡≦) ♡

    I can’t put into words how this novel gives me the feels every chapter but I just love everything in it~ It’s immersive and would really drag you out of your wits when something happened to one of the characters. And so far, I am most frustrated every time Cale does the hard things his own—subconsciously. And, as a courtesy of our great and mighty dragon—Raon, “That motherfucking white star!” I am freakishly frustrated on that white radish, too! I just want him deado! But that would also spell the nearing end of the novel and that’ll be sad. I hope that at least some chapters would contain Cale’s daily life after they defeated the White star~

    and it’s also a shame that I got spoiled for the next 3? or maybe 4 chapters. Sigh. But it’s all good since the feels are still there even if I know the general idea of what’s gonna happen HAHAHAHA

    Anyway, thank you for the translation~!

    I think that one way that the white star could die for good is to break the cycle. The once time use divine book of death always mentioned about a way to kill Death/death. So the ex-priestess uses the book on Cale, Cale has to pass Death’s Trial. Succeeds. All those promises become null and void. Last part of chapter 166.

        guys you remember in early chapter when cale lived disguised as naru in endable kingdom he found that white star looked like rook soo and remember that in past life he(cale) also lost whatever he cherished. so what if cale manipulate whitestar curse, we remember that whitestar can reincarnate along with the memory of the past. but what if cale made it to that white star will reincarnate again without any memory of the past. and thn after white star dies in the battle against cale henituse because of the curse he will reincarnate as kim rook soo and his curse of losing everything he cherish will keep intact and thats why white star who reincarnated as kim rok soo will loose everyone he will love and car about (lee so hyuk, choi jung soo e.t.c). and then after rook soo dies his soul will transmigrate into cale henituse.

          Umh, I am sorry but I didn’t understand you. I know it is a good theory but then why didn’t Kim Rook Soo lose his friends immediately? He only lost them in a battle with an unranked creature after spending a lot of time with them? Shouldn’t they die right on the spot?

    Raon is slowly starting to learn how to lead now, this is definitely a step for our great and mighty Dragon into his growth to become the future Dragon Lord. Everywhere is a mess right and chaotic right now while Cale is absent, then again this is time for the other to step up and surpass their limit. I am so worried on Cale’s side tho with whats happening with his plate after that ancient power overload he pulled, our poor baby Raon trying to hold the fort while being an emotional mess right now tho T_T

    I wonder if Raon’s attribute is similar to Cale’s “Instant”. Or could it be something related to the brain like “Record”? Present could mean a lot of things but none of them seem to click for me to pass as attribute. If it was Past or Future then it could be like going back in time or foresight but Present just very hard to understand.
