After the battle between the beastman was settled, I picked up Momiji who was thrown against the wall to lay on the futon, and then I asked Mizzet and Deus to gather together to introduce themselves.
It didn’t go smoothly since neither of them could speak the other’s language, but I think they were able to understand the situation by me acting as an interpreter.
I mainly told Shie that the three of us were friends, and that the strange one who he knocked out earlier had lost her mind due to her obsession with ongiri.
It didn’t take much effort to introduce them, thanks to Shie’s understanding, but the problem was Deus and Mizzet.
The two seemed to think that I had bought the child from somewhere, as he wore a collar and rags like a slave, and before I had a chance to explain, I was bombarded with questions.
“So what’s this all about? I’ll hit you if it comes to that.”
“Yes, Master. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t have more subordinates, but if you were forcing a weak person bound by a contract, such as a slave, to obey you, it would damage the Master’s name. He should be released immediately.”
They just say whatever they wanted.
Well, it can’t be helped if they thought so when that child was dressed like that.
“No, no. I’ve told you earlier, this child is not a slave. He’s an otherworldler who may have drifted in from another world due to special circumstances. I’ll ask him about the details now.”
“Oh, I see. I thought you kidnapped him. You should have told me that before. I almost got my hands on you.”
You’ve got your hand on me, though!
Although she no longer uses violence for selfishness, she still seems to have the same quickness to try to sanction what she feels is not right. ……
No damage done, by the way.
The brakes seemed to have been applied just in time, and the fist did not hit the target, but stopped right in front of me.
Since it didn’t hit me, she must have been in the category of ‘stopping before making a move’.
Well, this is also due to Mizzet’s straightforward character, so let’s overlook it.
It can be interpreted that she has a righteous heart that hates crooked ways.
However, after seeing Momiji’s assault and Mizzet’s swordsmanship following the public execution in the replay mode, only Shie’s face turned pale and she began to shake as if to say, “Could be this world is dangerous?” He began to tremble.
I’m really sorry.
“A world full of devastation and strife ……?”
“No, seriously, I’m sorry. But that’s not the case. If I had to make an excuse, it’s because this is just a coincidence. It’s true.”
That’s not very convincing to say in this situation, though.
But I’m sure Shie, who is supposed to be intelligent and clever, will understand.
“It’s okay. No matter what the circumstances, I will do my best to complete my mission. …… ”
It didn’t work.
However, if he was to be shocked here, it would only complicate things, so he pulled himself together and prioritized what he needed to do now.
First of all, let’s start by asking about the details of how Shie came to this world.
The two who understood that he was not a slave, but a person from another world, also seemed to be interested in this matter, and watched him with a different seriousness than before.
“So, why were you in the elf village and running amok there? I’ve heard about your purpose for transferring to another world, but does it have anything to do with how you came to be there? Let’s clarify that first.”
In response to my question, he looked thoughtful again and started rubbing his chin with his fingers.
This pose is not dignified at all, but he seems to like it a lot and has a slightly smug look on his face.
It’s probably a gesture he learned from the adults in his organization or something.
I wonder if it was a male researcher who modeled it for him.
Then, after a few moments of pondering and grumbling, Shie came to a conclusion.
“I can’t tell you all the details, because there are too many intricate details that should be left to the discretion of the organization. However, I can explain the circumstances of my rampage.”
“I see. If Shie says so, then I guess it can’t be helped. I will not force you, just tell me the part you can tell me, okay?”
The fact that the circumstances of the transfer to another world cannot be revealed means that the details of the deal with the creator god are a trade secret, but this possibility was already assumed, so there was no problem.
Shie said that he was an experiment and a disposable member of the team, so he knew that in many ways he did not have the authority to do so.
He said he would explain what he could say, so it was good to know that he was a friendly person.
“First of all, my main goal is to bridge the gap between the Creator God of this world and the organization in order to make a deal. Therefore, it was decided through research and investigation that the place to be transferred to this world would be the place with the strongest causality with the creator god. Specifically, it is referring to the residue of energy called mana, which has the power to create and maintain the world.”
In other words, they predicted the location of my appearance and flew to a time and place where the probability was high.
I’m surprised that they have that much technology, but since they want to make a deal with the creator god of another world, it makes sense that the god of the other world would be involved.
The fact that they understand the word “mana” probably means that they got the information from a sub-god who is deeply involved in the management of the world or something like that.
“Therefore, I had to act in order to search for the creator god, and I couldn’t be constrained. However, when I tentatively approached a settlement of what I thought to be elves and began to investigate, I was denied entry, as if I had touched on a taboo of theirs, and I had to force my way through. I had no choice but to engage them in battle, but due to my numerical disadvantage and lack of equipment, I was unceremoniously detained and is now being protected by Kenji. …… What do you think?”
When he finished telling me everything, he looked at me confidently with a (*｀ω´*) He exchanged glances with me with a smug look on his face.
Aside from the smug look on his face, I could certainly understand why Shie had been acting up.
In other words, he was looking for me and found a roadblock, so he had no choice but to pull out.
I didn’t expect to find a clue within a few hours of starting the story mode, and I thought the story was too good to be true, but I was surprised that they had come looking for me from the other side.
I see, so it was inevitable that he would encounter me.
