A Story of a Cannon Fodder Volume 2 Chapter 5

Chapter 5: The End of the Original Knights of the Round Table Novel – Genesis

[–I’ll go…that way]

[–No, since this is our first mission, we should stick together]

True was faced with a choice.

[–I’ll go…that way]

True chose and ran towards the forest. The deep, dark forest blocked much of the sunlight, even though it was daylight.

He dashed through the forest, stepping on roots and twigs. Then he spotted someone collapsed in the forest.

He hurried over to where a village girl was sitting.

“A-are you okay?”


She seemed unable to speak. For some reason, her body was shaking slightly, unmoving.

“What happened…?”

“That was my doing.”

I did it.

A cheerful-sounding voice shouted from the opposite direction of the girl, and True turned quickly, drawing his sword.

“Ah, sorry, did I startle you?”

A man in a black robe appeared. Though his face was obscured, True could tell by his voice.

“Oh, you’re a holy knight, huh? Good, you took the bait.”

“What do you…”

“What about that conversation and what happened with Yururu-Garestia last time? I’m the one who made her brothers go crazy, you know?”


True immediately slashed at him, but it was easily dodged.

“Ah, well, whatever. Let’s erase you.”

“Erase wha…”

“Hey. How are my eyes?”

The man in the black robe showed his face briefly. Not all of it, but True clearly saw his eyes. They were disturbing.

Fearsome and terrifying like the eyes of a dragon. The moment he saw them, True ‘s body froze like stone.

“These eyes are special. The magic eyes of the dragon serpent. I stole them from Legion Commander Romeo, a super famous adventurer in the Free City.”

The black-robed man laughed as True stood motionless in front of him.

“Oh, my name is Dela, by the way. Nice to meet you, though this is goodbye.”

He pulled a knife out of his robe.

“The Dragon Snake’s Magic Eyes can easily hypnotize people. You look strong, but without Magic Eyes yourself, you don’t stand a chance.”

“–Bye bye.”

END – Game Over

[No, since it’s our first mission, we should stick together]

True decided that they should stick together for safety on their first mission. Then the massive pack of dogs appeared in front of them.

They defeated those beasts, but their joy was short-lived when they discovered the body of the village girl. They had thought they were protecting her, but in the end they were protecting nothing. They felt emptiness and frustration.

Still, they had to keep going. Even if the road ahead was even more hellish…
