Chapter 187 – Two People with Social Phobia

Translator: Makisima from wangmamaread

Proofreader: Nevermind

The Vow of Black Rose took action three days after taking over the castle.

It seems that Mr. Goldoh got in touch with Royalists and decided to join the main force. Thanks to this time’s success we might even be able to become an official troop.

So now we were marching forward now.

The Royalists Faction was starting to gather at Oriana Plains.

The Doem Faction was also planning to fight at Oriana Plains.

A real war was about to begin, which was pretty exciting.

The capital of Oriana Kingdom was relatively close to Oriana Plains.

The Royalists Faction plan was probably to win the battle at Oriana Plains and then head over to the capital, and lay siege to it.

I was also planning to look for other parts of Violet-san’s body, and the destination was also the capital so we could kill two birds with one stone.

Epsilon joined our unit as my younger brother.

After marching for some time, the Ojisans, Epsilon, Violet-san’s finger and I got another two relatives to travel with.

Emm, but I’m not familiar with them.

They were brought by Epsilon when we were having a break.

“My name is Kai.”

“I’m Omega…”

Kai was a handsome, reliable looking guy with short blond hair.

Omega was a dark-haired Half Elf with heterochromia. His eyes were of two different colours, the first one was golden and the other one was silver. He was the type of person who always stayed quiet.

Their feminine figure was concealed by the slime bodysuit..

“Those two are my subordinates.”

Epsilon stuck out her chest proudly.

They were her subordinates from Mitsugoshi Company. Epsilon seems to have become marvelous.? Epsilon had become marvellous.

“They are going to pretend to be my relatives, right?”

“Yes, Sid-onii-sama.”

“Our troop is in need of soldiers right now. I probably can persuade the leader to allow them to join in anyway.”

In the end they easily joined our Vow of Black Rose without encountering any trouble..

After all, there was no reason for a spy to join our troop.

Because of the two newcomers, the Ojisans and the 5 of us acted separately.

I, Epsilon, Kai, Omega, and Violet-san.

In this way we formed an elite force of the shadows.

I think Violet-san can be considered our mascot.

So I decided to propose an operation plan while preparing the camp site after our today’s march.

The sun has already sunk behind the horizon, and the light of the campfire was illuminating our surroundings.

“Everyone, please come here.”

I called out to Kai who was taking care of getting the pot and bowls ready, and Omega who was making the bed.

Epsilon went out hunting in the mountains, but she should be back soon.

By the way, I was in charge of the campfire, all I had to do was to just watch it burn there.

“Is Sid-sama going to assign tasks to us?”

Kai suddenly appeared in front of me as if she was about to kneel down.


Omega also appeared so quickly that she seemed to have left an afterimage.

“Can you please come over normally?”

“Yes. I’m very sorry.”

“I shall try it again.”

After looking at them closely, both of them acted unnaturally.

Kai’s body flinched.

Omega’s hands were shaking.

They quickly returned to their earlier positions and then walked over slowly, their faces pale white.

Their actions were very unnatural, but I was not going to tell them that.

What was even the point of starting over? But I was not going to tell them that.

“Sid-sama, what is your order?”

Kai came over shaking.


Omega walked over trembling.

“Before Epsilon returns, let’s warm up by the campfire.”

Were they not good at coping with the cold… Ah, was it social phobia?

“To eliminate fear and uneasiness, you must first have a correct understanding of them.”

I decided to counsel them on life around the campfire.


“I see…”

I took Violet-san’s finger out of my pocket to warm it up, and they suddenly shivered again.

“If you don’t realize what you are afraid of, you won’t know what to do. Denying fear and escaping from reality are common mistakes.”

“Got it.”

“This is the knack to fight on the battlefield…”

“Denying your feelings is nothing but escaping from reality. You must first accept fear.”

They listened very carefully.

As I was saying something I felt was appropriate for this situation, I diverted my gaze towards tomorrow’s march direction.

“Come on, look at the campfire and face yourself. What are your fears… find the truth…”



In this way, I felt I’ve developed a somewhat better relationship with them before Epsilon returned.

Sid cant collect all violet body parts because he had destroyed one.
If violet resurected, she will become one handed cripple.

        Sigh… What they defeated before was just a lump of leftover meat to get blood and make that reddish Viagra… She can regen that like, in a sec.

    Kendov Posted on12:18 am - Jun 27, 2019

    Powerful as he is, he can probably just pump her full of his Recovery Atomic and grow a new one xD

Paps Posted on10:40 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Thanks for the chapter, i am pretty sure they are tacking his words as more valuable and deep that he intends.

heavenjudgement2 Posted on4:39 pm - Jun 24, 2019

The chapter is too short!!!!

    SomeGuy928 Posted on12:53 am - Jun 25, 2019

    Get use to it, 8 more Chapters before their caught up, and their all relatively Short.

Rissira Posted on4:28 pm - Jun 24, 2019

All of shadow gardens members are female except shadow himself. . Kai and omega should be a her correct me if I’m wrong?

    NoReply Posted on8:19 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    They’re acting as male.

    Deus Venatus Posted on9:51 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    They’re both “shes” yes, but they’re made to look like “hes”, so the make pronoun was used instead of the female, it might be a little bit confusing, but it’s most likely in the interest of the setting lol

      Deus Venatus Posted on9:51 pm - Jun 24, 2019

      Male* pronoun Lol

      Decaf Posted on8:18 pm - Jun 29, 2019

      The legendary reverse traps…

Raihan Posted on4:09 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Thanks for the chapter

Righthand Posted on3:32 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Kai is actually the 22nd letter in the Greek alphabet “Chi”. But it’s pronounced Kai in English, don’t ask me why…

    Rukasu0 Posted on8:31 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    Just like Episilon “Their feminine figure was concealed by the slime bodysuit..”

Nhan Sieu Posted on2:32 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Does Sid get the problem right this time? Or he misunderstood again and would still make it out anyway lul

Busker Posted on2:13 pm - Jun 24, 2019

My god, kai and omega are so hilarious! Shaking from excitement of receiving orders directly from their god! Or they could be afraid because they thought they had just left a bad impression on sid for failing to even respond properly to his summons? Either way, that’s sid for you!

    SmaragdinaBeta Posted on11:40 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    Probably violet-san’s finger makes them nervous…

Akbar Posted on1:12 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Is this another batman training

Ghost Posted on12:42 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Nice, always happy for new members of Shadow Garden to be introduced. However I’m surprised by the name of Kai. Normally, the top members are named after Greek alphabets, but this is different unless I’m missing something?

Anyways thanks for the chapter.

    Circle Posted on2:09 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    I mean, you can only keep that up for so long before you run out of letters 😛

      Ghost Posted on4:31 pm - Jun 24, 2019

      No duh, but if that was the case they would have used a regular number as seen with Rose. Someone above already noted that Kai is another way to pronounce 22.

        Holow Posted on12:55 pm - Jul 6, 2019

        Rose Is her real name and the diabolos cult know her as owl. The numbers are like new members only when you gain their trust you gain a name

Orang melayu yang layan novel Posted on12:27 pm - Jun 24, 2019

I wonder why she shivered of? Fear or coldness?

    Abominable Posted on12:45 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    Excited to finally be talking with Shadow-sama. XD

Allen Reynaldi Posted on12:15 pm - Jun 24, 2019

Thanks for the chapter Makisima-san!

Mitz Posted on12:14 pm - Jun 24, 2019

isnt that only the main unit knows who sid is? xD

    KEKEKE Posted on12:26 pm - Jun 24, 2019

    they are the left and right hand of one of top brass so of course they need to know who’s their big boss

    SomeGuy928 Posted on12:47 am - Jun 25, 2019

    I don’t think its a Secret. All of the Girls at Gamma’s store knows Shadow is Sid.

      Holow Posted on12:57 pm - Jul 6, 2019

      Only the trustworthy members know the real identity of shadow

SaMu Posted on11:57 am - Jun 24, 2019

ForeSHADOWing, Sid? Can I expect that facing your fears would come in handy for the next few chapters?

Thanks for the translation. Why are they so short now?

FishBall Posted on11:08 am - Jun 24, 2019

Thanks for the chapter ❤❤❤
