It flies down the street at a high speed for an ordinary carriage. The surrounding scenery changes along with it.


Only occasionally, when passing or overtaking other carriages or travellers do they slow down a bit so that their suspension mountings isn’t revealed.


Even if you slow down, you will still feel that you are "flying pretty fast". That's about how as fast as it gets.

If you keep running the horse at full speed, of course the horse will be tired. This is different from the running dragon, which moves inexhaustibly as long as it absorbs magical power.


So, from time to time we take a break. I give water, salt and fodder to a horse and we are carrying food and water. Even after the break, they seemed to be moving along quickly enough pace and Camillo said, 「I'm still glad they taught me that one」.


The mountains through which we had passed had long since disappeared into the distance behind us and all around us was a landscape that was just a bit lonely to call a meadow.


There was less grass than near our house and rocks strewn about as if to take their place. I can't get off the carriage to look at it in detail but the vegetation seems to be different.


If things settle down, it might be nice to take a leisurely visit to this area. ...... if they are willing to let me enter the country next time I come back.


Eventually, the sun was about to set and we began to prepare for encampment. Water has already pumped into empty barrels along the way, so all we have to do is make a fire. There is no tent, so you will sleep wrapped in a suitable blanket.


The meal was a simple soup of dried meat and beans, but it was a lot better than the bite and nibble we had during our break. Camillo, Gosha-san(coachman-san), and me ate leisurely and took turns standing guard while we slept.

At midnight, I wake up for a swaying (Yusa Yusa) sensation.


「It's time for a change.」


「I understand.」


it's coachman He has to operate the carriage again tomorrow so, we ask him to stand the first watch and then sleep soundly until morning.


「I made you some tea.」


「Oh! I'm sorry, thank you So, good night.」


「Thank you. Good night.」


With a blanket pulled over him, he looks around with his short spear. The bonfire made it difficult to see at night but a full moon with a perfect circle was rising and silently illuminating the area.


The moon is difficult to see in the forest and during the expedition I had quickly returned to my tent at night so, this was the first time I could see it clearly since I came here.


The fact that it shines blue without any craters makes me undeniably aware that it is a different world, but it is still beautiful.


According to the installed knowledge, the moon over here shines by《《Not》》reflecting the light of the sun. It seems to shine with the blessing of the moon goddess and I am not sure what kind of substance it is composed of, as it does not correspond to my knowledge.


The sun, said to be a blessing of the sun god. Which means it is a part of the world where knowledge of the previous world does not apply.


The "common sense" in this world is that the sun and the moon come and go based on the bold myth that God throws his blessings on both the sun and the moon.


The reason there are four seasons is that the sun god, who is a laid-back person is in a phase of increased blessings from spring to summer and from there to winter, when he is tired of the marsh and holds back his blessings.


The phases of the moon will be the same for the same reason. It is said that the temperamental moon goddess cycles through her blessings in roughly one month.


Basking in the blessed light of such a temperamental moon goddess, I occasionally add wood to the fire and watch the quiet plain. Occasionally, I hear the voice of some beast, which chills my liver but there is no sign of it approaching us.


In that way I spent night for watch leisurely.
