-Leader Birksby-

“Whoa, you have formed an annihilation team.
As expected from Leader.”

I heard Rickbelt’s voice from outside the base.

I looked towards the source of that voice, and confirmed that Borolda, Saizerg, Rickbelt, and Loucreek are present there in the entranceway.

“Yo, annihilation team’s almost ready.
Any other problem?’

“Good morning.
Vice leader chose the team members, right? Then it should be fine.”

Borolda looks more cheerful compared to the usual.

You really have to be the most careful when he looks chirpy like this.

“Got it.
Then, what sorta group are we looking for? And the location?”

“A group of murderers, hiding in a cave in the middle of the forest.”

“By middle of the forest, do you mean the place where monsters’ den used to be?”

“That’s the one.”

“Please tell me more details about this group of murderers.”

“There are at least 21 of them.
10 of them are on wanted list for murder.
5 of them are under investigation, related to murder.”

“…isn’t that a little too many?”

But this is only the number of people we were able to confirm.
In actuality, there could be even more.”

“I see, got it.
We have to be even more careful.”

“Yeah, we’re facing dangerous enemies after all.
But, please don’t let any of them die.”

I see.
So that’s why they catch the traitors first.

Because they might be instructed to kill the criminals.

“Got it.”

“Leader, we’ll bring 10 people from our base.
10 people stay to protect the base.
Please confirm.”

“Let me check, Gabojula.”


The base is full of traitors.

These 3 people on our side, I’ve heard rumors that they have money problems as well.

You think you can win them over?

“No problem.
I think this will be fine, but you need to extend cautions in case any suspicious people approaching.”

“I understand.
So, when are you moving out?”

Ah, we indeed have finished our preparation.
But you’re asking when we will set out?

You forgot to ask about that.

“We’ll be in trouble if they outmove us.
If there’s no problem, we’ll set out right away.”

Borolda looked towards the vigilante group, which has finished their preparation.

That’s when I saw Cival lined up next to Nouga.

Then he looked at me and grinned.


“So, you have finished with all the preparation, I see.”

“Yeah, all perfect.”

Aglop replied to my words.

“Alright, everybody listens.
We are dealing with dangerous people, including those who are on wanted list for murder.
We are going all out!”

As my voice echoes through the base, I can sense a bit of tension from the vigilante group.

But this level of tension is just right.

For the coming battle.

“We’ll take the rear.
We’ll group together with the guys.”

Borolda pointed towards the traitor adventurers’ team who joined the special team.

I guess Borolda and the group will catch them.

“I see, adventurers will have advantage when it comes to capturing the one escaping.”



“I’ll leave this matter to you.
My team will go to make a report to the guild.”

Apparently, Saizerg’s team was staying behind.

I don’t know what the purpose is, but I’ll leave it to them.

Borolda raised his hand to signal, and the traitors approached him excitedly.

“It’s been a long time since I worked together with Borolda-san’s team, so I’m excited.”

“Is it? Well, if you say it like that, I’m really excited as well.”

I went towards Aglop, who is waiting at the head of the line after that high tension back and forth.

“Are we leaving now?”

“Yeah, let’s go!”

As we go into the town, the townspeople made way for us with surprised expression on their faces.

There isn’t a lot of chance to form a large-scale annihilation team like this.

We only mobilize this number of people when the situation’s really bad after all.

“Is this what you mean by making them surprised?”

“We’ve been taken by surprise too, though, by those guys.”

Aglop glanced backward.

I can’t confirm because we are at the front of the line, but that must be Borolda’s team.

I’m sure that an hour ago, I would not even think of heading into the forest with such a large team.

Well, the organization members must have been taken by surprise as well.

I can see the organization members hurriedly rushing off to somewhere, although they usually don’t even show their presence.

It is said that the best way to deceive the enemy is to start with the allies.

“Hmph, interesting.”

“You can have fun, but I won’t forgive any failure.
By the way, I’m curious, who suggested you to bring that thing in your hand?”

“It’s Cival.”

“I see.
Did they even predict this?”

I secretly checked the rear group at Aglop’s question.

Behind me is the leading group of the annihilation team.

That group is chock full of traitors.

I shrug my shoulders at Aglop.

“I wonder.”

I have no idea about that.

But I know that the reason these guys gathered behind me is to kill all the annihilation targets.

To do that, they need to take position in front of the annihilation team.

If they don’t jump out first, there’s a chance they will get caught together along with the targets.

So, the organization indeed has ordered them to kill all the criminals, huh.

I will never let that happen, though.

We left the town and pushed our way through the forest.

After a while, we arrived in a place where the trees have lessened up a bit.

“It’s a nice place, isn’t it?”

There is enough room to spread out our nets.

And they’re right behind us.

“Aglop, get ready.”

We have 2 nets in our hands.

I handed one of them to Aglop.

When I, the one leading the line, came to a stop, Aglop quickly moved to the side.

When I stopped, the annihilation team stopped moving.

I wait for 10 seconds there until Aglop is ready.

I turned around and threw out my net at the group, who are making some noise.

The group members look dumbfounded at my action.

I can see another net spread in the air and came down.

“Alright! Got half of them!”

I guess we managed to capture about half of the traitors who were positioned at the front of the line of the annihilation squad.

The net is large enough to catch a gigantic monster and made of sturdy material.

And because this is a magic item, if a prey is caught in it, the magic will activate and strip the prey of its strength.

That Cival, how the hell did he came up with the idea of using this thing.

I laughed wryly at the group of traitors sitting down, perhaps having lost their strength.

Aglop also has done his job well, I see.

…oops, 2 of our allies are also caught…well, those 2 are on Aglop’s net.

I’ll leave the matter to him.

“Leader, what are you doing!”

Gabojula came towards me in a hurry.
He was not part of the leading group.

There is another traitor following behind him.

These two seem to be the only ones left.

In other words, 20 traitors and 2 of … our allies are caught in the net.

“What’s wrong?”

Behind Gabojula, I can also see our allies following in a hurry.

“What do you mean what’s wrong? What are you thinking? Doing things like this!”

“Gabojula, Dalgore.
You’re under arrest.
Catch them!”

Our allies that are following behind Gabojula looked puzzled hearing my command.

Well, it can’t be helped.

They haven’t been told anything.

“Leader, please don’t joke at a time like this!”

“You think I’m joking? Gabojula, check out the people caught in the net.
Almost all of them are members of the same kidnapping ring as you.”

I can hear Gabojula gasped.

The look on his face is one of surprise.

I guess he didn’t expect to be found out.

“Wh, what are you talking about? I’m part of an organization? Please say this is a misunderstanding.”

There’s no need to listen to Gabojula’s words.

Our allies were surprised with this revelation and looked at Gabojula and Dalgore suspiciously.

They won’t believe my words just like that, will they?

We are friends who shared joy and sorrows together.


“Catch them, quick!”

We don’t have much time.

Gabojula tried to flee, but someone pointed a sword right at him.

“You think I will let you run away, you traitor!”

Aglop quickly stands in front of me.

Looks like Aglop managed to control the chaos at the rear.

“What are you all doing? Follow Leader’s command right now!”

Hearing Aglop’s yell, the dumbfounded members started to move in a rush.

They caught Dalgore, and Gabojula also got caught with his hands tied up behind his back.

“It’s over now, Gabojula.”

Gabojula fell on his knees as if he lost all his strength.

“Leader, Vice Leader.
Is it true that these guys are involved with that organization?”

“That’s true, I checked with a magic item.
There’s no mistake.”

The members nodded quietly.

They must have a lot of thoughts swirling on their minds.

“Um, then what about us…”

Those 2 allies who got caught in the net raised their voices.

“Ah, you guys are alright.
We just kinda made a little mistake…sorry.”.
”This is for the sake of catching all the enemies in one net.
You have any problem?”

Aglop cut my words with a terrifying smile.

Both of them paled in fright.

And the 2 members supporting them are petrified.

“…No, no problem at all!”

“I think so too.
But I apologize for my mistake.
You will forgive me, right?”

“Yes, we will!”

The other 2 also voiced their agreements.

Too scary.

Anyway, we should move on to the next plan.

“You guys, we’re going back!”

“Huh? Leader, what about the band of murderers?”

“Ah, we’ll deal with them later.
For now, we’re returning to the base.”

“Got it.
I’m sure things will turn interesting.”

Hahaha, Aglop, can you return to your usual self quickly?

“Let’s move!”


We start moving by dividing our number into two 2 teams, one to transport the traitors, and one to return to the base.

On the way, we met with a team of adventurers with a blank look on their faces, wondering what Borolda and the others had done to them.

“What did you do?”

“We just had a little chat, as their seniors.”

They are scared to death.

“… I see.”

There are some types of kindness you don’t want to talk about.
