After that, the Hero Leon Bastard, who bowed his head toward us, spoke.
The world in which he lives, his homeland, is on the verge of dying due to the depletion of mana caused by the absence of the creator god.
In order to deal with the depletion of mana, he invaded this world and joined forces with despicable sub-gods to loot mana.
But in the end, he was fed up with the way things were done at the expense of others, and decided to turn against them and contact the creator god, or the sub-gods and apostles associated with them, who are the important people in this world.
When he had finished talking about these things, the hero bowed his head again.
“…… I’m really sorry for what I did. I don’t know if you’ll trust me after what I’ve done, but I’m going to make things right. I’m responsible for the sub-gods who invaded this world. I’m not going to let them do whatever they want. But even so, until I gave you this information, I couldn’t move freely either.
To be honest, it’s hard for me to trust him.
Well, as for the point about not being able to move freely, I guess that’s actually true.
I have a lot of thoughts after hearing the truth, but I could see his actions by acting by his own to leak the information made sense.
Even if one of Hero of that world rebelled them, there is no way he can deal with the three pillars of the Dragon God, the God of Destruction, and the Demon God who are said to have attacked here.
If so, it’s not a bad idea to make appointments with the most encouraging collaborators of this world, those connected to the Creator God.
In fact, I would do the same, and I would say it’s the best move in this situation.
I wanted to praise him as a Hero who did well.
However, what I find difficult about this story is that the essence of the problem is not there.
“Well, well. Hero Leon, I understand what you’re saying. It’s just a difficult question. It’s true that if it was just this world, we would only have to fight off the invaders from other worlds as you said, but then the other side would not be able to back down. At worst, they might even send reinforcements.”
“…………. You’ve got a point there.”
Yes, the problem is that this war between worlds is not going to be settled by fighting.
As he said earlier, what needs to be solved is the mana depletion phenomenon caused by the absence of the creator god, and the destruction that comes from it.
If not, even if the Hero deo not intend to transfer a large number of people to this world, there is a high possibility that people like the organization to which Shie belongs will appear and send reinforcements by other means.
I’m not sure if the Hero man knows this, but he admits the fact while looking down in frustration.
I’m sure he knows it’s wrong, but he’s devastated that he can’t do anything to stop it.
In my opinion, a young man who looks like he just came of age, even though he is a Hero, is taking on too much of everything.
However, if I told him that now, it would not resonate in his mind.
In this world, I’m just a young man, or more like a 15-year-old boy.
There is not a shred of conviction.
So I decided to put that aside for the time being and ask him for some more details.
In the first place, there was no information about the disappearance of the Creator God or the beginning of the depletion of mana that I had received from Shie.
I turned to her and for some reason she was dripping with cold sweat, muttering things like “this is not right, it’s a misunderstanding” and “a talented member will never fail”.
Oh, that’s the thing.
She knew that there was a flaw in the communication of information, but she didn’t want to disappoint us, so she tried to hide it.
It’s a common pattern among immature children who lie because they don’t want to be disappointed.
However, I would like you to rest assured that I will not blame you for that.
If I were the leader of the organization that sent Shie out, I’m the one who’s providing the instruction.
Regardless of the information obtained at a price, it would be unreasonable to complain to Shie, who was carrying out the mission with good intentions and at all risks.
If you don’t like it, you’ll have to take care of it yourself.
You can’t look big when you’re just borrowing power from others.
“Don’t worry, Sie. The information you gave me was the most reliable I’ve ever received. If I have any contact with your organization, I’ll give you the highest rating.”
“Aah!! I, I…. ”
“Keep up the good work.”
When I patted her on the head, Shie broke her blank expression and smiled.
Oh, this girl’s expression like this is rare, I’ll save it in my brain folder.
But then again, the Hero is amazing.
Aside from Shie, who learned the language here, this Hero seems to already have a command of the language of this world.
At first, it seemed that he understood what Momiji was saying when she came into contact, and maybe it was a special ability or magic dedicated to the hero.
There is a possibility that he learned it on his own, but he doesn’t seem to have much contact with the residents here, so the former is probably the more likely scenario.
“Looks like we’re on the same page. I’m relieved to hear you’re not a bad guy. To be honest, I still don’t know what kind of person or sub-god you are, but I’m relieved to hear you’re not a bad guy. If you’re like the Demon God I saw in that mountain range, I thought I should be prepared to die here.” (Leon)
“Oh, you’ve already met Demon God? I see. Well, he’s pretty extreme.” (Kenji)
“Well. I didn’t met him, I just looked at him. I only saw him from a distance, but you didn’t feel like you were alive.”
The Hero Leon was also very good at observing Jean from a distance without him noticing.
Or rather, he had already introduced himself, but we hadn’t told him anything about us yet.
This is a disrespect.
I’m a little late, but I’d better introduce myself, too.
“Okay, I’m a little late, but I’d like to introduce myself as well. I’m Kenji Saito, the creator god of this world, and you can call me Kenji. This is my Paladin partner, Mizzet, and my companions, Momiji and Shie. I’ve got a pretty good idea of what’s going on over there. I’ll definitely take you up on that offer of cooperation. Maybe we can work out that mana depletion thing, ……, or as I call it, the [Creation Breakdown].”
When I finished introducing myself, the Hero and Shie were surprised as if they were bewildered.
Now that we’ve seen the [Creation Breakdown] from the Hero’s story, let’s turn the tables on the adversity that has engulfed the two worlds from here on out.
