“What kind of monster is this ……?”
I couldn’t help feeling frustrated by the terrifying being with super-dimensional power that I couldn’t think of as a something in this world.
Earlier, I refuse to believe in this old man that humans still haven’t abandoned.
I never thought that a creature with this kind of power would really exist.
However, it still feels strange to me.
Does this thing really belong to this world?
The power that overflows from him has a unique vibration that is slightly different from the demonic power of youkai or the spiritual power of humans.
It’s more like the divine power of the Land God in my prime, but with a tremendously distorted and malevolent malice that far surpasses it.
Yes, that’s exactly what the onmyouji old man told me about ────, a visitor from another dimension.
“Whoa, you’ve got plenty of time to think before this demon god. Sub-God of Fox.”
As if the demon in front of me had realized that I was out of time, he approached me at a speed so fast that I couldn’t catch it with my eyes.
The method of attack is ……. I see, is it a fight with bare hands?
I have been belittled.
If he used even a part of that evil power, he could crush this entire space with the total amount of power without even bothering to take primitive measures such as approaching and hitting.
What he did was a wasteful action.
It seems that he likes to play very much.
I don’t think it’s possible, but even though he’s Great God called Demon God, is the battle between gods an entertainment in this guy?
I’m getting more and more confused.
What exactly is his purpose?
First of all, let’s talk about the beginning.
Originally, demons and youkai in this world are necessary evils that are destined to avenge lives, inflict trials, and become the foundation for humans who overcome them.
It is only natural that the father of creation, the main god of this world, decided so.
Even I, who was counted as one of the pillars of the land gods a long time ago, took on the role of a great youkai, an enemy of humanity, because I could guide and nurture the lives of the people of Japan in the right direction.
I am even proud of that.
Therefore, it was inevitable that I became interested in the old man who continued to burn his own life in order to show the pride and growth of human beings.
Although the old man seemed to be aware of this fact …….
But what about this guy?
I don’t sense any purpose from this demon god as the one who gives the same ordeal, nor does he seems to be taking a role to counteract the evil, such as for the sake of that old man who has overcome the ordeal in his own way.
He just seems to be enjoying the situation. ……
It’s like an innocent child playing with a toy he found in a place that has nothing to do with him. ……
Isn’t that a foolishness?
If that is the case, where in the world did this demon god come from,……, or who created him?
I feel that this demon god is tremendously scary.
“Oh, so you can prevent this attack too? Good!”
“Kuh! It’s just a palm strike….. and that’s with one arm and this much power. …… It’s crazy…..”
“Ha-ha-ha! I get that a lot! I’ve heard that line a lot from the heroes I’ve faced in the past. They were funny. ……Yes, they were just the best of the best, a little stronger than you are now.”
It’s not even an attack, just a palm strike to see how it goes, but each blow is heavy, and even if I protect myself with my tails, the impact will penetrate.
This isn’t good…
Perhaps it was the clear difference in ability, but I could tell that I was being completely played with.
It seems that to this demon god, I am nothing more than a slightly sturdy toy.
But that’s why I have to stop this Demon God.
If I leave this monster, who has no pride, no purpose, no trials, and who doesn’t seem to belong to this world, this world will end.
I won’t let that happen, I won’t let that happen, you monster.
The malice and hatred of humans in Japan.
I, the one who controls it all, will stop you here.
I only have one chance.
The only way to get rid of him is for me to catch him off guard and use that to kill the old man, the main source of the magic power.
As soon as I made up my mind to do so, I pretended to be fully wounded while trying not to let him know that my heart was trembling with fear, or rather, I used even that to my advantage.
“Ha… ha…. ha…”
“Hmm? Your movements are become sluggish. Could it be that you’re out of breath? Oh, this is so boring~”
All right, now is the time…
“But you know? I think that’s a little too blatant. You see, we are both sub-gods, right? I’m sure you’ll be able to understand that because we are the same level of existence, but I don’t think sub-gods run out of energy that easily. That’s why …… means. I wonder if it’s a trap, disguised as a trembling from fright?”
Am I caught?
It seems so.
I was already in a state of crisis and had no time to spare, while the other side had enough time to calmly overlook the situation.
He must have known what I would do, not to mention the fact that I had no choice but to kill the magic source.
“Hmm, ……. I see, I understand very well.”
“Hmm? What’s the matter? Do you want to give up? But, you know, it’s not that time yet.”
“Oh, I’d give up if I could, you fool. But I don’t think you’d let me do that, would you?”
Well, thanks to that, I have finally made up my mind.
If there is a difference in ability that can’t be overturned no matter what, then it’s time to sacrifice myself and blow myself up.
I had no choice but to kill the old man as collateral damage.
If I had come this far, there was no way to stop, no matter if he could see through my actions or not.
It was ironic, though.
This is just like the situation between me and the old man earlier.
I never thought before I broke the seal that I would be the one being tested.
Aside from that, I need to let my daughters go first, and then get the other humans out of this ward.
I regret that I couldn’t test my youngest daughter, Momiji, and the human man who would have accepted her, but given the current situation, I guess I can’t help it.
There was no way they could defend themselves in front of such an existence.
Forgive me, my daughters.
“Mother! No way!”
“I don’t have a choice. It’s the only way…. And Yatsuha, please take care of your sisters, especially Momiji. Tell her ‘You’ve done well to escape from my control, now go live a life of happy with a man you like.'”
I forced the girl, who was looking as if she wanted to say something, and threw her out of the ward with the people present without asking any questions.
Except for the people nearby, they will be thrown out when I die anyway, so there is no need to worry about them.
It’s just a matter of not getting involved in the self-destruction that will take place here and now.
The only regret I have is that I didn’t get to pet my youngest daughter again.
Hmmm… It’s a dumbfounding thing.
I never thought that this Tamamo Gozen, who was once feared as a great youkai, would be trapped like this by this summoning technique of dying old man.
No, it’s not.
This is what human growth is all about.
If the old man, a mere onmyouji, had devised a way to summon such a tremendous monster, how could I not admit it?
If only the old man had regained consciousness, I’d praise him for a job well done.
“Now then, let’s go for the final battle, demon god of the other world. This great demon of the Nine Tails, the land god of Tamamo Gozen, will bury you along the way from this dimension in exchange for this life.”
“Yeah. That’s the way it has to be.”
When the time came for the final battle, the demon god of the other world raised his voice in a crazy way.
What is it?
He’s suddenly smiling, that guy.
“Huh, I finally got a sign of my father. It’s too late to turn tail, too late. I’ve been stalling for a long time because …… this grandfather’s lifelong request, but that’s no longer necessary. I’m going back to the demon continent.”
What are you talking about, you evil demon?
You’re going back to the Demon Continent?
Where is the Demon Continent anyway……?
“Well, good luck with the rest of it, fox subgod. I’m sure that my father will be able to solve most of your problems, so don’t worry about it and go on a rampage with your trials and tribulations. …… However, my father is very strong, even though he doesn’t look like it. …… Have a good fight, then!”
Then he told the onmyoiji oldman something, said something appropriate, and left. ……
He went away. ….
“Hmm, I don’t understand.”
He was really weird until the end.
I don’t really get it, but as long as he’s gone, that’s good.
I searched around, but I can’t feel its presence at all.
It seems that he really went back to his original dimension.
…… What the hell was that guy? But then there are things to do with that.
“Now, what should I do with this old man, who has been the greatest contributor to my suffering?”
I would like to boil or roast him, but I’m also concerned about what that demon god said about turning his tail and buying time.
Suddenly, I saw a figure.
I don’t think it’s possible for a man to keep an eye on me without me knowing he was there.
Just as I thought this, a group of strangers appeared with the presence of my youngest daughter, Momiji.
“Kaa-sama~~! Onigiri-man said he will give you a surprise attack! He’s been watching for a chance, but it’s a mess because he got caught by Jean!”
“Hey! You stupid Momiji! You can’t say that!”
“Why? But I really want to see duel between the two of you!”
“Don’t make a wish on your own!”
It seems that a pleasant group of people have arrived.
