While Marie was on Horai Mountain, elsewhere a dire situation was unfolding.

Outside of Horai Mountain, chaos had erupted.

“Ah! What is that monster?!” “Don’t come any closer! Stay back!”

Cries of the kingdom’s knights echoed from every direction.

Horai Mountain had appeared at the boundary between the Gēta・Nyīga Kingdom and the Madukas Empire.

It was slightly closer to the kingdom’s side.

Lurking there were grotesque monsters, unlike any ordinary beasts.

They were magical creatures born from sweets, experimental subjects created by Martha.

Martha was a magician of lesser rank than Marie.

She didn’t possess the skill to successfully cast magic in one go.

These failed experimental monsters had emerged from Horai Mountain and were rampaging.

“Damn it! What is this creature that looks like a combination of a dragon and a thunder wolf?”

The monsters Martha called 【synthetic beasts】 were far stronger than any regular monsters.

In this world, where magic had already declined, the synthetic beasts were unparalleled in strength.

What’s more troublesome is. . . . . .

“What the hell?! It regenerated from its arm and spawned another monster!”

The most problematic aspect of the synthetic beasts was their incredible regenerative ability.

As long as Martha’s magic remained, they would endlessly divide their cells.

This means that as long as there are cells left, new synthetic beasts will be born.

It was Martha’s terrifying magic.

“It’s no use! Retreat! Take refuge in the Capital City where Saint Griselda’s barrier is erected!”

No human could stand against the synthetic beasts created by Martha.

Judging so, the citizens started to flee towards the Capital City.

. . . . . .However, the Capital City doesn’t have the capacity to accommodate such a large number of citizens.

“Let us in!” “Please!” “Save us!”

A large crowd of refugees had gathered in front of the Capital City.

They were desperately pleading to be let inside.

But the knights were holding them back.

“Step back! We can’t let you all in!”

As much as they would like to let them in, the Capital City wasn’t spacious enough.

The king and the citizens of the Capital City, concerned for their own safety, were not willing to admit the refugees.

“You’ve got to be kidding!” “Just because you’re safe in there!” “If it weren’t for Saint-sama’s barrier, you’d all be dead!”

Everyone was desperately struggling to survive.

The refugees wanted to get in, and the Capital City citizens wanted to protect themselves.

As they clashed uglily. . . . . .

“Ah! They. . . . . . they’ve arrived!”

A horde of synthetic beasts started to surge forward.

The refugees wore expressions of despair.

Faced with the advancing swarm of synthetic beasts, they resigned themselves to their fate, believing it was the end.

“Flame Barrage!”

Zudududududududu. . . . . .!

. . . . . .Bullets of fire rained down like a storm.

The bullets pierced through the synthetic beasts, turning them to ash.

“Wha, what just happened. . . . . .? What was that?”

Then, a woman appeared at that spot.

“People of the kingdom, listen! I am Princess Riara of the Madukas Empire!”

Incredibly, Princess Riara and her attendant Keel appeared riding on iron horses.

Iron horses owned by the Empire, magic bikes.

The Empire possessed incredible magical tools crafted during a time when magic flourished.

Riara had ridden one of them to reach this kingdom.

“I’ve been asked by Marie-sama to come and assist the people of the kingdom. . . . . .!”

Marie. . . . . .? Everyone tilted their heads.

But they had indeed been saved.

“The Empire is prepared to accept refugees! This is all under the directive of Witch Marie-sama!”

The refugees had no clue what was going on.

But they did understand they were being offered help.

“If you don’t want to die, follow me!”

The refugees nodded in agreement.

The second wave of synthetic beasts was about to surge forth.

“Everyone, prepare. . . . . .!”

Adventurers who were former captive slaves stood around Riara.

They cooperated with the soldiers of the Empire, keeping the enemy at bay.

They held magical guns in their hands.

These were gifts from Marie.

“Ready. . . . . . Fire!”

“””Flame Barrage!”””

Normally, the magic guns would shoot regular bullets.

But these had been modified by Marie.

These were special guns imbued with magic.

What was fired from the muzzle was Marie’s magic, Flame Barrage.

They easily incinerated the synthetic beasts, turning them to ash.

“Whoa. . . . . . So the Empire had this incredible technology. . . . . . Maybe I should defect. . . . . .”

The refugees watched Riara’s heroics and saw a glimmer of hope.

Riara rallied them.

“With this power that I’ve received from Witch Marie-sama, protecting you will be effortless! The Empire is open to all, come to our nation!”

In the end, within just an hour, the Empire eradicated the synthetic beasts.

They led the refugees and retreated.

The people of the kingdom could only stand in awe at the overwhelming power of the Empire.
