All of a sudden, I’m Leon Bastard, become hope of mankind.
(Seriously, his name is リオン・バスタード)
I’m not from this world, however, the world I come from is also one of the worlds created by the hands of a certain god, and in that world, I am the hero who bears the holy sword.
It’s not that I think I’m the hope of the human race or anything like that.
Simply being chosen by holy sword means that the person who has that power has that much responsibility and expectation placed on them.
I was born a peasant boy in a small village, and if it weren’t for the fact that I was recognized by the holy sword, I would have been just an ordinary person with a talent for swords.
Fortunately or unfortunately, in a ritual given to all eight-year-olds, I succeeded in pulling out the holy sword kept by the temple and obtained this power.
From that point on, it was an uproar of excitement, and in no time at all, a knight of great ability was dispatched from the royal capital because I was recognized by the holy sword, and the days of training to master my power began.
I had some doubts about the fact that an educator would be sent to the village instead of going to the royal capital myself, but apparently this is a common practice.
I was eight years old at the time so that I didn’t know what the situation was, but I heard later that the grown-up heroes went on a rampage because such forcibly separation in the past, and I heard that they had changed their ways to prevent this from happening again.
…… Well, that’s not important right now.
I digress, but anyway, that’s how I ended up carrying the hopes of humanity on my shoulders.
“And yet, what a mess we’re in. I took up their order because the world was in danger of running out of mana, but I never expected this to happen. I was seduced by the sweet words of the sub-god, I guess I’ve had sick of this ……. Sorry, everyone.”
I send my apologies to my friends on the other side of the world, who are not here now, for being so ungrateful.
Even though I thought I should have been more cautious, or consulted my friends more, it was too late.
It was I, of all people, who used my heroic ability to manipulate time and space to bring an army to this world.
If only I had stayed put, I wouldn’t have created a situation where such dangerous sub-gods could run rampant in this world, and I wouldn’t have been targeted at by the sub-gods and creator god of this world.
I can’t even begin to regret it.
I can’t go back anymore, I’ll have to stop them on my own now.
“Fortunately, I haven’t been abandoned by this holy sword yet …”
I took a glance at the holy sword that still followed me after such a failure and gripped its hilt tightly.
If this holy sword, which was once created by the creator god to select the heroes, approves, then there is still work to be done.
If there’s still strength left in me, I can get up.
I won’t fail this time.
“But first, we have to find the creator god for the fundamental solution…. The Dragon God and the God of Destruction have already fought against sub-gods of this world, and I’m sure they’re aware of it, but we have to tell them that it’s not the will of our entire world.”
I’ve got an idea.
At any rate, there’s no way I don’t know that the demon god is probably provoking the creator god right now.
I and she have been working together for a while, and we’ve been keeping each other in the dark.
So she knows how I’m going to act, but that’s something that can be covered by the compatibility of my abilities.
Afterall, my characteristic as hero is manipulating space and time.
Just like the fact that our base for hiding from sub-gods of this world can be created with space-time magic, I am confident that I will never be found out if I just hide and follow the demon god around.
Even if the demon god knew the direction I was taking, it didn’t mean that she was aware of my existence itself.
“So, the only question is which one of us will find the creator god first. …… Looks like I’ve won this one.”
As I watched the clash between the nations of this world, Albalest and Gungel, using space-time magic to shift the phase of space and conceal my appearance, I noticed something strange.
The demon god and Gungel’s guys don’t seem to have noticed, but clearly there are areas where the flow of the battlefield is strange compared to the fighting power each of them possess.
This is the domain of the brave and heroic, and there is no way I could mistake it for anything else.
At first glance, it looked like they were fighting naturally, but I could see two warriors standing around each other, trying not to hurt each other’s soldiers, and fighting inconspicuously.
I don’t know what they are, but I’m pretty sure they are something tied to the creator god.
At any rate, there is no reason for a normal person to adjust the situation so that both sides are on par with each other and do as little damage as possible, even if it is only to induce their own country to win.
Fortunately, the Demon God hasn’t noticed this yet.
Well, she’s one of the best when it comes to magic and cunning, but she’s no professional in war.
As someone who has spent most of her life fighting, I guess that’s where the difference lies.
“Now that we’ve found you, let’s make contact with you. I don’t know if you’re the creator god or another sub-god, but I’m still looking for you.”
As soon as I made that decision, I used space-time magic to create a distortion and began to create a space that would isolate the two of them.
I’m trying not to let the demon god find out about this, so I have to be careful, but I don’t think I have to worry about her finding out.
Because in this world, there is no one who can match me in terms of this trait.
“Now, let’s begin! Time and space boundaries activated! …… Hmm? …… What the hell, I have a weird feeling right now.”
And when the completed magic was activated, it was accompanied by the two men and a woman who were the target of the magic, and some kind of beastly-looking weird duo as an added bonus.
No, how did that happen!
