In front of the elves who I made the visitation time after interrupting their meeting with the Brave, I told them the details of the sub-god of the end.
What I know now is that the sub-god possesses a chimera-like ability to absorb others and grow.
To elaborate on this ability, the world tree is already being gradually absorbed by the sub-god of the end, and this is a problem that needs to be solved, but not immediately.
The sub-god is not a legitimate deity created by the god of creation, nor is it a demon like the Demon God, but a completely new species, like a naturally occurring bug.
Finally, I was going to tell them that his spirit was a child, but it seemed that no one who had listened to me up to this point couldn’t guess that, and they seemed to have an idea of what I was talking about.
That’s very good.
“Well, that’s about it, I guess. …… Some of you seemed to have understood it from the beginning, but that’s all the information I got.”
As I finished my story, I glanced at the mysterious demon and looked at him to see what he was up to.
He didn’t seem to move yet, but when our eyes met, I could see he was a little agitation.
He’s the source of the miasma after all, he knows.
I mean, he just laughed a little, is he really trying to hide from me?
However, I was convinced by this.
I don’t know how he did it, but it seems that a demon with similar characteristics to an elf is mixed in with the others.
Also, although he has the appearance of a boy, I’m concerned about the fact that this boy’s magic power is so sketchy.
If I had to give an example, I’d say it’s like an ultra-high-performance sports car before it’s filled with gasoline, or a state-of-the-art machine that can unleash explosive power as long as it has enough fuel.
He can move at full power at any time, but he seems to be deliberately suppressing his power in order to suppress the generation of miasma.
“What a surprise ……. If you believe that story, then the God of Spirit has already fallen under the spell of that sub-god. I didn’t realize that things were this tense….”
“Oh, you believe what this human is saying? I can’t believe it at all. I don’t believe that God of Spirit was helpless and unable to fight back at all. Even if the cause was the work of someone with a sub-god level of divinity, I still wouldn’t believe it. Besides, that sub-god must have just been born, right?”
Lara was horrified by the situation, but the boy demon pretending to be a soldier suddenly asserted his opinion.
What’s with the sudden presence of you and the smirk on your face?
I mean, you’re already acting under the assumption that I have noticed you, aren’t you?
I don’t know what his purpose is, but he’s a pretty interesting guy.
If he doesn’t do anything wrong, I’d be happy to let him go.
“It’s not like that. Rather, after listening to Kenji-sama’s story, my fears were confirmed. In fact, in both the investigation that I conducted with the people of village and the primordial magic that I could use personally, I could feel the suffering of the Spirit God. You are.. um.”
“Ma Jean, Ma’am. Shatira-sama.”
Ma Jean? You’re Majin, Majin aren’t you?
The fact that the soldier is not in Lara’s memory means that he is already using some kind of consciousness jamming magic or cognitive disruption, but it is not clear yet.
The fact that he’s gotten this deep into the village without causing any damage makes me wonder more and more about his purpose.
But at least he’s not trying to harm the human species.
With his ability, he could have attacked the village before I arrived.
“Okay. You’re right, Jean. If you think about it normally, your question is plausible. I’m glad you brought it up.”
“No, Ma’am. It’s my job.”
Jean then bowed his head, pulled back, and winked at me as if to return the favor.
Oh, you’re welcome.
“But that’s why … In the event of this, the Brave must urgently join hands with you. Of course, including me. As the Queen of the Elves, as the head of this village. Even though I’m in a position to rule the whole country, but I’m not hesitant anymore. ”
Well, that’s the conclusion.
However, I can’t say yes because I have a lot of plans.
I’ve already been double-booked, and if I’m triple-booked here, I could not.
This uncle has only one body.
“No, I can’t do that.”
“May I ask why ……?”
It’s a natural question.
“The first is that capturing this dungeon is not our top priority. Of course, we will capture it in the end, but there are things we need to investigate before that, so I can’t join the Brave party with Lara Shatira and aim for the deepest part in any time soon.”
Lara seemed to have some thoughts about what I said, and she seemed to want to say something about this situation.
However, remembering the value of the information I had just given her, she seemed to be hesitant to force me to do so, feeling the magnitude of the favor.
However, it seems that the other side can’t back down either, and the two sides fall into a stalemate for a while.
…… At this point, an unexpected person came to provide backup fire.
“I agree with him, Shatira-sama. After all, he is the only one who understands the mysteries of the dungeon that no one else could. There must be some condition when he said he couldn’t work with us. Perhaps there is something that can only be conquered by dividing into two teams.”
The one who speaks so eloquently is Jean, the Scum Demon.
What the hell, you’re on our side?
I’m not sure what your intentions are, but good, do more!
“… Sure, that line is possible …. But.”
“That’s right. There are still some concerns. After all, there were only two of them. Even if this strategy is legitimate, it would be tough for them, who are not Brave, to dive into the labyrinth with only two people in their strength. …… So how about doing this? I would accompany them.”
There was a time in my life when I thought, “Good, do more”. But, isn’t that too much? How attached are you to me, you demon?
In fact, it would only be a disadvantage for him to accompany me since I know he’s a demon.
His intentions are too unclear.
“Okay, let’s go with that idea. Then…. Jean, use your power of excellence in your village to the best of your ability to help the warriors of God.”
The idea went through.
Well, that would be the case if there was some kind of interference in thinking.
In this way, we managed to get a good reason to enter the dungeon, but at the end we ended up with an extra guy.
I can’t help but feel uneasy, is this okay?
Also in the middle of the meeting, Mizzet whispered, “Oh, he’s coming with us? I mean, isn’t it obvious that he’s suspicious?” So I’ll explain it to her later.
While thinking so, I decided to leave the atrium hall like the audience room and head for the mysterious demon and the dungeon capture without having the opportunity to meet the Brave.
“Explain it to me, Kenji. This guy is obviously suspicious.”
“Yeah, I know. ……. First of all, I’m pretty sure he’s a demon.”
“I’ll tell you more later, but for now, just rest your tired head.”
Because of this strange demon, there were more factors to be wary of, and if he turned out to be enemy, we would have to deal with him.
However, the person who had decided to follow me was smiling the whole time and seemed to be in a good mood, as if he was about to jump.
And then, in a voice that no one could hear, he muttered something to himself.
──── Well, I guess you’ve noticed me, father. ──── I’m kind of very happy about that.
