Story of Mizzet’s Trial 2
Facing Mizzet who was using verbal trap, the other party spoke as if this level of intelligence warfare was nothing at all.
“I’m not sure what to say……. You’re really asking a sharp question. At that time, you just a young human girl who was completely immature and did whatever you pleased, you was able to grow up to such a level……. Is this also result of father’s education? Well. For the sake of your growth, I’ll let you see my appearance.”
Contrary to expectations, the other party did not particularly show off the information, nor did he have any intention of discussing, instead praised her as if he had seen through Mizzet’s intentions.
Not only that, but he also indicated that he was going to reveal himself.
This could now be described as a complete miscalculation.
No, should I say that I was hit by the point?
For Mizzet, who tried every means to put on a posture so as not to expose her flaws, it was a situation that turned into a dumbfounding one.
Then, after a moment of distraction, the appearance of the other party was confirmed.
The figure a man with two horns on his forehead appeared out of thin air.
“Dra…. Dragon man…”
“Huh……. So that’s how it looks to you humans.”
“Ah, am I wrong?”
Mizzet did her best to bluff her way to an answer.
“No, you’re welcome to take it in a direction you’ll recognize. By the way, you are chasing after father, aren’t you?”
“Are you going to tell me? I don’t know who you are, but if you didn’t say anything, you’ll be in trouble. I’m much stronger than I look.”
The mysterious man who appeared nodded “hmmm” at her words and paused for a breath.
He seemed to be pondering over something, but his pondering did not include what the girl had just said, but rather what kind of intention the father had in mind to make him meet this girl, and only that.
To him, his father was an absolute being, and his actions often had a foothold that was connected to the distant future.
Therefore, it could be considered that it was also inevitable that he would meet the girl here, and that there were things that could only be accomplished here now, …… he thought so.
Of course, from the actual father’s point of view this was an absurd thing, and he might think “how is this possible?”, but from the point of view of the man who regarded his father as a far higher being than himself, this was something that could not be considered.
After an unspecified number of pauses after that, probably because his thoughts were becoming focused, the enigmatic man replied.
“I see, even though this is only a small glimpse of my father’s thoughts, I have grasped the situation to a certain extent. …… But, girl, I also fully understand your desire to be a helper for Father, but right now you are still not capable enough. If you are going to take on the Demon King, you must at least be able to see my figure, or else you won’t be able to do anything.”
Mizzet was startled by it.
Because under the premise of tracking based on the existence of the demons, she felt the real sense of truth in the term of “demon king” said by dragon man.
And, if that was true, then it meant that Kenji Galhart, whom she was now tracking, had a dispute with the Demon King.
Or is he planning to start a dispute?
“You, you! What’s going on with the Demon King! Are you saying that Kenji is now fighting the Demon King? What the hell do you know?”
“Don’t disturb your heart by being too eager for the answer. Be strong, integrity, and beautiful… These are the basics of a lady, right? I’m not a perfect educator like father, so I don’t know the details, but it’s impossible that he didn’t teach you that.”
How much does he actually know, she wondered.
Despite this pondering, Mizzet, who did sense clues from him, calmed down for a while.
The important question now was whether he was friend or foe.
.. From what he had shown so far, he had never harbored ill will towards the person he called father, or even felt wary of reveal himself.
Not only that, but Mizzet felt that he could even be said to be treating that person with the utmost respect and honor.
“Ah, so that is. Father didn’t tell you who he was, so I won’t go into details, but the young man you’re chasing, Kenji Galhart, is heading to the seaside town where the Sage, Argus Lockhart, is based.”
“I see. That’s also what I was thinking.”
The man nodded his head in satisfaction at Mizzet’s answer and continued.
“You’re really smart, you do deserve to be the one who was chosen by father. Turning back to the topic, Kenji Galhart should be joining forces with the Sage to defeat the Demon King. This is just something I assumed in my anticipation, but there shouldn’t be any mistakes regarding this matter, right?”
After that, the dragon man continued his explanation.
In short, in order to find a way to deal with the demon king who is secretly operating in the big countries of the neighboring mainland, Kenji plans to use the hands of Sage and rely solely on human power to attack.
It was said that he was now recruiting companions for this purpose to replenish his battle strength.
It was also for that reason that he made contact with Mizzet Galhart, aiming to strengthen her basic abilities and so on.
Mainly in terms of strengthening her combat abilities, Kenji had great expectations of Mizzet. He wanted to train Mizzet so that she could stand by his side and help him. Dragon man went into detail about each and every one of them.
Of course, in reality, Saito had no such plans in the slightest.
“…… As expected, Kenji had been testing me.”
“Yeah, I guess you could say that. So what are you going to do? If it comes to catching up with Kenji Galhart’s back, I won’t hesitate to train you.”
“But …… That being said, if you refuse to do anything about it and then continue to chase after him, I will not stop you. After all, it’s in Father’s plan too.”
He answered nonchalantly, and delegated the choice to Mizzet.
But Mizzet’s heart had already made up its mind.
“All right, I’ll do what you want. I must be that guy’s strongest sword and shield. I don’t know who you are, but I have to admit that you’re a few levels stronger than me now. …I’ll surpass you in no time, so be prepared to realize that.”
The girl, despite understood the difference in strength, boldly raised her sword and gazed at the man.
No longer holding doubts.
Because if Kenji had high expectation for her, and was relying on her, then she had to meet that expectation.
“Hehehe …… That’s the way it should be. Interestingly enough, if you can overcome all of my tests, I, the one who is called the strongest sub-god, will definitely take the responsibility to send you to my father’s throne. Absolutely.”
──── Come, do whatever you want.
The original sub-god created by the God of Creation, as the Dragon God, the strongest being in the entire race, announced the start of her training.
Exactly what kind of end awaits Mizzet in the test a month before Saito Kenji makes a corporate acquisition and returns to the Otherworld? This is something no one knows.
