They made Laplace shut up and gave him the job of kidnapping the students with the air pirate ship .
“As I thought, you’re planning on using my ship–”
“This is a message from Rimuru-sama but… he said if you’re able to complete the mission, he would even prepare a letter of marque–”
“I will do it! Please leave it to me!”
Laplace’s whole face was lit up with a smile and he took Tia and happily rushed out .
It would be better to limit the use of Spatial travel so that Milim doesn’t notice . Souei had already decided that this mission would best fitted for Laplace when Souei received the mission from Rimuru at first .
However, it was their blunder that they didn’t know there was such a rage among airships currently .
Diablo and Souei reflected on that on the inside .
And after that, the two of them began discussing about the second objective .
It had been a while after the ship had taken off .
Although the duration of flight is affected by the weather, the plane would arrive at Ingracia Academy City within 10 hours .
However, this time, a certain event will soon commence .
And exactly when I was thinking of that, Laplace came .
The announcer had announced that the plane was now entering a state of emergency .
Magnus kept on talking to me frequently so Laplace really saved me .
Why do I need to tell this guy about my favourite food or hobby and stuff?
He isn’t trying to hit on me, is he?
I don’t think so ‘cause I look very plain now as I was wearing round spectacles, a mask and also had black hair .
Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter since Laplace is here .
After all, starting now, he won’t have the leeway to be hitting on people .
“Hyaaahhaaaa!! This ship is now under the rule of the air pirates–Greed Circus!! Cry, scream and despair as you please!”
A cheerful voice echoed inside the ship .
Laplace, that bastard, looks like he’s enjoying this to the fullest .

He wanted a letter of marque because he wanted to do this, eh?
Well, it doesn’t really matter as it won’t really affect me .
He won’t dare attack any of the Tempest Airline’s ships and it isn’t really fun seeing the ships the other countries develop emerge into the sky .
For what it matters, I have already confiscated all the techniques related to airships from the Empire .
It was among one of the conditions to acknowledge the Empire as independent . After all, I would like the monopoly of the sky to remain under Tempest .
Although I don’t think it will ever happen but, to prevent the usage of airships in wars between countries, this matter was one of the highest importance .
After all, if you were to get rid of the skies among sky, land, and the sea–there’s only limited area where you can fight .
Although I don’t think there are any idiots out there who would come picking a fight with us, it would be difficult to stop other countries from fighting amongst each other . We can be the mediators but intruding in their problems even before a war breaks out would only buy their animosity .
And when I thought about it considering all that, to have those wars not affect any civilians, removing flying forces would be the most effective .
Airships are inventions which completely change the concept of wars . And because of this, there was a need for us to keep it to ourselves .
As such, there was also a need to crush the airship-related inventions made by other countries . And so I was thinking of coming up with something to stop that . So if I were to just leave it to Laplace, he would happily do these tasks .
All that’s left is to make sure they don’t find out I am the one behind this . I should be careful to not leave any evidence behind .
While thinking of such things, I was observing the course of events .
“You can rest easy . I will protect you!”
This Magnus dude took my hand and said so without even feeling the least bit embarrassed .
What’s this, what’s this?!–I felt like shouting that out loud .
What ‘you can rest easy, I will protect’, huh?
Don’t shit around with me, you idiot . In the first place, I told you I’m a guy .
My heart is undoubtedly that of a guy . This Magnus dude really doesn’t listen to other people .
I ended up grumbling about him . I guess I will let it rest since I didn’t say it out loud .
Putting Magnus aside, I should go and do my job .
A jolt raced through the ship, signifying that Laplace’s ship had connected .
The cockpit is probably in a state of panic right about now .
First, let’s rest at ease .

I predicted such situations to occur and installed emergency transmission devices in every ship .
I brought out a ‘sticky steel string’ from my fingertip and promptly connected to one of those devices .
With this, I can produce letters on the monitor using transmission codes .
It would have been easy if I used ‘Thought Transmission’ but……
I decided to not use skills which leave traces behind as much as possible but this is turning out to be quite difficult .
Or so I am complaining but actually, I installed these devices ‘cause I wanted to enjoy moments like these .
I am glad they are coming in handy . I will keep it a secret that I am having fun feeling like a spy .
