The aristocrats, who truly believed the report that the sub-god of the demon continent had become more active due to Mizzet’s statement, started to make a fuss as if they were bees colony, a complete change from earlier.
Even in this day and age, demon gods are considered to be mankind’s greatest enemy, a taboo, etc.
I can’t help but feel that they were so repulsive when they talked about the legendary Paladin, but when it comes to their own crisis, they believe it.
It’s just like an aristocrat who is good at counting profit and loss.
However, this commotion was temporarily calmed by the king’s blackmail.
The king said that if the story about the demon god is true, then Mizzet who can know such information is also real.
Therefore, he concluded, there was no need to panic right now.
The king must have been very upset when he heard that the demon god was moving, but he was very bold.
Or rather, I’m sorry that I framed Jean, even if it was to keep the information from the other world secret.
If I run into him later, I’ll have to apologize for this.
It was such a lively meeting, but in the end, the conversation returned to the main topic, our reward.
Well, even though we came back, the money and the title were not necessary for us to go through the ages, so after much deliberation, they came to the conclusion that they would carry it over to the next meeting or something like that.
This is probably a way for the king to keep us tied up in this country for as long as possible, as he feels that his country is in danger due to the increased movement of the demons, but as expected, we can’t just sit around in this country any longer.
The information about the enemy that I wanted to get from the war has been solved by the fact that I have a connection with the Hero, and there is no longer any reason for me to stay in the great country of Albalest.
“That’s why I’m going to get out of this country for now.”
“I agree. There’s no point in being here anymore.”
“I agree with you. With the Hero’s legacy and this new power, we are invincible.”
“Hmm? I guess I don’t care either way.”
I’ve just flown from a private room in the royal castle, where I’m already being treated as a guest of honor, to the temple of the creator god, to tell everyone what I’m going to do.
I can’t help but shake my head at her mysterious confidence that she’s invincible if she has a little bit of new power, but it’s true that if she has some kind of contract with Deus and they’re fighting together, she’s probably invincible against ordinary creatures.
Therefore, I’m going to go through with it.
“Okay, so I guess that means we have a majority in favor of going away from the country…. Then, before leaving this country, I think I’ll start building up my strength first. The reason for this is that in the future, when fighting together with the Hero, the current state of the force will remain uneasy.”
With all the achievements and new features added, there’s no reason not to use it.
I don’t know what kind of function it is yet, because I haven’t asked the angel no-name who is staying at the temple’s computer yet, so I don’t know the details.
However, the app’s message was such that I could strengthen the person I nominated as my apostle, so I’m willing to hope for the best.
“Well, now that we have a policy, let’s ask some questions.”
I headed to the stationary computer, which became even more magnificent with the version upgrade, and started asking questions to the angel using the keyboard.
[God of Creation]
Please explain the contract mode.
Also, is there a limit to the number of people that can be selected as apostles?
It has been a long time, my Creator.
In the newly released contract mode, you can select any number of beings with a certain level of loyalty, liking, or friendship to the creator as an apostle.
Also, when they become apostle, both their race and occupation will evolve greatly, but once they become an apostle, they can’t cancel the contract forever.
That means that even if an apostle betrays and hurts you, the contract cannot be cancelled.
You can give temporary orders, but they are not absolute in terms of duration or binding power.
Please be careful when making your selection.
For your information, the current selectable beings inside the Great Temple are “Mizzet Galhart”, “Momiji”, and “Deus Ex Machina”.
In other words, as long as they are in a relationship of trust, they can be given power without any particular disadvantage.
However, while there is a safety line in place that prevents selection without a minimum level of trust, it does not include a function that prevents the power from being misused, and the order can be broken if it wants to.
“Well, I think I’ve got it all figured out.”
Now, then, who shall we make the first apostle?
The candidates are Mizzet, who is willing to give up everything to follow me, and Momiji, who has no connection to the concept of malice.
And, I’m sorry, but I can’t have Shie yet.
It’s not just a matter of danger, but it’s also a matter of friendliness, and I’m not allowed to choose her in the first place.
Deus didn’t seem to want to leave her yet either, so there was no need to make him an apostle right now.
I groaned as I thought about this, but in the end I decided to make Momiji an apostle for now.
The reason I chose this girl first was to increase her chances of survival anyway.
Momiji was very good at running away, but she doesn’t have any fighting skills.
Therefore, I was worried that she would have to be strong enough to defend herself even if it became a slugfest.
I explained this to everyone and asked for their opinions on Momiji.
“Hmmm. I’m not afraid to be a part of onigiri-man’s dependent, but I’m not sure what my mother would say. Hmmm. Maybe she’ll think I’ve suddenly run away from home.”
Oh, I see.
This girl was originally a dependent of the Nine Tails, or more like an apostle, so it’s unclear what the connection would be.
Angel No Name says it’s possible to sign up and override it.
But Momiji didn’t seem to be particularly concerned about it, and it seemed that leaving the family was on the same level as running away from home.
How loose is the perception.
After all, Nine Tails had asked me to take care of her daughter before, and I don’t feel comfortable dragging Momiji into battle with the sub-gods as a Three Tails.
In addition, Momiji is useful, so I don’t want to keep her at home, and I want her to be necessary, so I decided to continue the contract.
The rest of the problem is …….
“Hey! Why is Momiji become a dependent first!? Kenji, make me your apostle first! Or I’ll hit you!”
And then there’s Mizzet, who’s unusually red-eyed and teary-eyed.
She’s still grabbing me by the chest and shaking me around.
Well, I was going to make them both apostles, and it didn’t matter which one came first, but I guess there was something she couldn’t compromise on.
I don’t have any problems, so if that’s the case, I guess I’ll start the contract with Mizzet.
“All right, all right! Mizzet will be the first! I’ll make you the first apostle!”
“… There’s one thing you need to know”
So, Mizzet was to reign as the first apostle.
At the end she whispered, “Have I been pampering you less? I guess I should push you into bed from today on…”
