Youkais Extermination 2
After receiving the 5 million in advance, I immediately held the wad of cash over the smartphone in my pocket and performed the dimensional storage.
I’ve already demonstrated my dimensional storage skills in a match with the brawling boy, so there’s no need to hide it now.
”Well then, Saito-sama, I also have a youkai I have to deal with personally, so I’ll leave the extermination of the surrounding youkais to you…”
“Yes, leave it to me. I will do my best to live up to your expectations.”
“Thank you….. Then, I’ll take my leave.”
“Eh, are you okay?”
As expected of a promising daughter of Onmyouji family, she is extremely busy, and with that said, Kuroko Togami tried to leave, but when she stood up a little, she kneeled down as if her strength had been removed from her body.
It is dizziness from standing up?
No, she clearly looks pale.
I mean, this feeling, I’ve seen it somewhere.
Oh, that’s right.
It’s similar to the sypmtom when I stayed up all night in the office for three consecutive nights to fix out the mistake of my subordinate Miyagawa.
To put it simply, she was overworked.
“No, it’s not much. I can’t bother you, Saito-sama, so don’t worry about it,” she said, trying to get rid of my hand that support her shoulder, but the power in her hand was too small.
I’m sure her physical abilities are on par with mine when I was a level 3 warrior.
The power of Kuroko Togami, which is overwhelmingly strong for an earthling, was only as strong as she looks like a girl of her age.
She was very weak.
As expected, if she’s this weak to this extent, it can’t just be overworked.
Is she using too much power or something?
For now, I’m going to apply recovery magic.
”Even though it’s a job, if you put too much effort into it, you won’t be able to exterminate the youkais, pain, fly away!”
“Meh, that’s embarrassing, to be honest. The healing ability sure will be helpful. Apparently, I have overused my spiritual power to eradicate the youkais that have increased in the past week.”
After finishing the spell chanting, which was still uninspiring, it seems that her physical strength has recovered to some extent.
I don’t have the slightest understanding of the threat of a youkai I’ve never met, but is there any reason why a single high school-aged girl would have to go this far?
High school students are supposed to be free to study, do club activities, have fun and enjoy their youth.
As you were born into the Onmyoji Clan called the Togami family, you may have some time taken away from your time with some strict training and discipline, but I don’t think you should risk your life in any way, right?
If this powerless girl continued to challenge the next youkai, if the youkais were assumed to be dangerous as the demons and monsters in the other world, the worst case scenario is that she could die.
To be honest, as a cowardly old man whose basic policy is ‘value your life’, I don’t want to leave this girl alone.
It’s not a good idea to force myself into the problem she’s carrying and I end up dead, but fortunately I have the power of a Paladin that I got in the other world.
Even if I were to take on a mere one or two more youkai that even this powerless girl could take on, it would be a piece of cake of course.
Okay, In terms of strength, it seems not a big deal, so I’ll help her out.
This is just the whim of an old man who has experienced the same thing as a company employee.
“Alright. I’ll deal of the youkai instead of Togami-san. It may more powerful than those small fries around here, right? Wouldn’t you like to have my help here?”
“…. Are you sure?”
I make a determined face with a grin that’s not like me, and halfway through, I offer my cooperation.
Well, no matter how doubt she is, there’s no way she’s going to refuse, since my whim has already set the direction, right?
It’s okay, I just do what I decide.
”Haha, it’s times like these that you need the help of your elders. It’s the key to getting across in society. The trick to living a long life is to delegate the tasks that cannot be handled to those who can.”
I couldn’t do that, that’s why I became a salaryman, slave of company.
I don’t want her to take the same path as me.
Then all of a sudden, Kuroko Togami started laughing.
“Hahaha…. You really are an interesting person, Saito-sama. I’ve never met anyone who would say such things about the importance of slacking off.”
We laugh at each other about what’s so funny.
She seemed to have relaxed a lot.
If you feel too responsible and carry anything on your back, you will inevitably overdo it and fail.
It’s better for people to live an appropriate life and have a little room to breathe, that’s the way life works.
I’m not Mizzet, but that’s life lesson number one.
“So where should I go?”
“Yes, I’ll take you to her. The other party is the one tailed fox, the daughter of “Tamamo Gozen,” the nine-tailed fox great youkai….. Even though she is only one, she has considerable power, so please be careful.”
Apparently, it was daughter of youkai called Nine-Tailed Fox or something like that.
No, no matter how you look at it, that’s a youkai that looks like a mid-boss.
Was she going to challenge such a powerful enemy in her current physical condition?
Is that okay? This young lady, I’m worried that she’s really going to die of exhaustion in the future…….
Considering the fact that she said it’s only one tail, maybe the more tails you have, the closer and stronger you get to the nine tails, but even so, the nine tails themselves are a powerful enemy that was fought by dozens of Onmyouji a long time ago and could barely block them from acting temporarily, right?
Challenging her in this state is like going to throw away your life.
I’m not quite sure, but I’ll do whatever I can to get it done.
I’m going to do my best.
