Mizzet’s little question almost exposed the existence of the app, but I managed to cover it up.
However, if I think about it, even if I don’t want to disclose information about this app publicly, inviting the Kuroko-san to train in the other world I’ve created will be the most efficient training ground to gain a quick countermeasure against the supernatural existence of the Nine Tails.
If the crisis of the Nine Tails is visibly looming at the moment, it might be a good idea to consider it as an option.
Well, I’m still hesitant to disclose the information of this app in front of the black clothes bodyguards.
If this kind of dangerous information were to be revealed to an unknown valet, there would be many problems.
For the time being, I’ll put this matter on the shelf for now.
I cleared my throat once and tried to come up with a reason why the Mini Kuroko-chan was damaged.
And then, when the idea was gathered, I took out a doll from the dimensional storage and made the body of Mini Kuroko-chan, which had been miserably torn apart by the Demon King’s breath, appear.
“Well, that’s right … First of all, this mini Kuroko-chan ended up in this state after a battle with a rather formidable yokai. The youkai is still quite cunning, and as you can see, it’s deadly. It led to a blow. I could barely defeat it with the help of my disciple Mizzet and other humans. So, even though I ruined the borrowed doll, I think the threat is mostly over.”
I biased the otherworldly part of the story, as if I have been in a fierce battle with a great youkai somewhere in this world, and then shifts the point of the story.
No, I feel like I’m trying to shift it and failing, but I’ll cover it up with momentum.
And then, feeling that the threat had already passed, the Kuroko-san let out a breath, but again wore a dubious expression and said…
“So, the demon king is…”
I knew you’d be interested in that!
That’s right, I’d be curious too if I were in your shoes!
What is the Demon King? I’m not even aware of the existence of a Demon Lord in this world!
I can’t start worrying about it.
I have to come up with a good excuse.
”… That’s that. It means that it was a youkai who called himself the Demon King.”
“Oh, I see!”
To be honest, I thought it was a rather painful excuse, but Kuroko-san seemed to have some idea of what was going on, and with a satisfied look on her face, she gabbled.
It looks like it went well …?
“I also have experience with this. A powerful youkai or demon call himself a God and demand more awe from humans than necessary. I encountered the same kind of being when I was training with my grandfather and confronted an old youkai who had been accumulating demonic power for years and had tricked humans. So you’re saying it was that type of existence!”
Oh, I see, that’s how you took it.
That certainly makes sense.
This is the first time I have heard of such a youkai, but if the daughter of the Togami family, who is an expert in this field, says so, then it must be true.
After all, he’s a person whose business is to get rid of youkai.
“For now, I’ll leave this damaged Mini Kuroko-chan.It maybe possible to repair it.”
“Oh, no, please hold it in your own hands. The doll is designed to automatically self-repair if you give it psychic power, so if you put it by your side every day, it will restart soon.”
That’s a lie.
This doll would come back to life naturally?
No, it’s true that a substitute doll that automatically repairs is nothing but convenient, but love is too heavy.
When she asked me to hold it, Kuroko-san was also a little worried because she was looking up at me with her cheeks dyed.
By giving it so much spiritual power, or rather magical power, it doesn’t add any function other than self-healing, does it ……?
For example, when magic power is intertwined, some kind of contract is formed, or something like that.
No, I think too much..
That’s right, I’m overthinking it.
There’s no way she’s hiding that important thing, yeah.
“Okay, I understand. Then I’ll share my spiritual power with her every day. ”
“Now that the consultation is over, shall I escort you to your home? Even though there are bodyguards, the Nine Tails family have been on a rampage lately, and Miss Kuroko, who has a deep history as an Onmyouji, would be in danger.”
I’m sorry to say this to Kuroko-san, but if the Nine Tails are in rampage, a mere bodyguards won’t give you much protection.
She knows this very well, and I thought it would be safer if I accompanied her.
Even if it hurts their pride, they will be more relieved to know that the young lady is safe.
“Oh, about that ……. ”
As soon as I mentioned about going home, she gave off an air as if she was wondering how to start the conversation.
I wondered what was going on.
And now Mizzet, who had been silent until a moment ago, opened her mouth and explained the reason.
“Oh, Kuroko decided to stay in this room while she was chatting with me. To be honest, the black-suited escorts are not good enough as guard, so it’s the same whether they’re here or not. We’ll take care of the young lady and you guys can go home.”
“I’m sorry, Saito-sama. I thought Mizzet-san was your relative, and I thought it would be no problem if I said so.”
Uh, no way …….
