I looked at this young man with gentle eyes and said, “You have worked hard.”
“You! How dare you look down on me!”
“No, no, no. I’m not looking down on you…!”
“Enough, I gonna go serious!”
At that moment, the young man suddenly took out a human-shaped piece of paper from his sleeve, made a seal with two fingers, and began to chant an incantion.
Huh? Could it be that this is the thing called Shikigami?
Immediately, for some reason, the human-shape that was just a piece of paper began to mold into shape of a knife and fell into youth’s hands.
So it was Omnyouji magic. It was the first time I had seen it, but his magic was more like a juggler than mine. The title of juggler might be more appropriate for him.
“I’ll make you regret for challenging me to fight and trying to seduce Kuroko-sama. Prepare yourself!”
“Hey, Is using weapons allowed?”
I glanced at Oldman, but his expression didn’t change. Given his reaction, it seemed it was part of test too.
It was really bad.
If I wasn’t able to use recovery magic it would had been a tragedy.
However, even if there was a difference in strength as a warrior, if I continued like this, it wouldn’t end well.
It should be said even if I could win, I don’t want to experience of any pain.
Thinking of this, I sighed and had no choice but to take out my machete.
I put my hand on the phone in my pocket and silently thought about taking out a loot.
If the youth still refused to give up after this, I’d offer surrender this time instead.
The machete would only be used for defense, and I didn’t want to shed any blood or make him bleed.
I raised my machete and took a defensive stance, turning my attention to the referee, Togami Genzo.
“Ooh, it’s actually the second ability… As expected, he’s not an ordinary person after all.”
“Togami Genzo-san, it’s dangerous to continue the test. If this continues, please allow me to surrender.”
The Oldman pondered for a moment.
No, there were no factors to consider at all, were there?
Seriously, it is bad.
“Master, I can still fight! Please continue the fight!”
“Hmmmm… Well, all right, that concludes the test. Thank you both for your hard work.”
The oldman nodded, thinking about what was going on, and I guess he took me at my word and announced that the test was over.
I’m glad it’s over without seeing blood. Even this oldman has a little bit of common sense, I’m sure.
However, the youth who was announced that the test was over, didn’t except that the fight would end here, and knelt down dumbly.
The youth looked desperate, but it’s not a broken heart or anything, so I don’t think there’s nothing worry about. After all, I have no plans to join this terrible family.
Thinking of this, I’m not sure whether I should call him out or not, but I think this is just youthfulness, so I decided to not interfere.
The youth who was kneeling on the ground was still frozen in place, but I’m sure he will recover at some point.
You should not worry about it and continue to work had in the future.
“Hmmm, that was really amazing.”
“Thank you very much. So I think that means I’ve passed the test, don’t you?”
“Of course. With this ability, it’s more than enough to deal with youkai. As expected from my granddaughter choice.”
Huh, what youkai?
Based on what he said, from now on it seemed like I have to fight with the creature called youkai.
All I need from you is an explanation and I’ll go home.
“So, why did you end up bringing me here?”
“Huh? You want to start there? … ”
Huh, isn’t it natural for me to start there? Why did the old man looking so confused, it should be me.
Then, Togami-san came in and started to explain.
“I apologize for delay in explaining. Actually, the reason why I forcibly invited Saito-sama is because I wanted to ask for help from a wild supranatural power holder like you in the extermination of the youkai that our Togami family does for a living… We cannot afford to have a valuable person like you, with your powerful unusual abilities, snatched away by another family or government.”
No, I don’t want it, definitely. I don’t want to get involved in a battle to rid the youkai that will apparently shorten my life.
By the way, what’s wrong with government, what are they planning? Is there any connection between Omnyouji and Japanese government? And there are other unsavoury families and organizations like this one…Could it be the supranatural beings are aslo real? No, it’s impossible… No, no, no, no…..
“Can I have your help?”
“Well, no… I don’t think I can decide right away…”
“Ah! You’re right. It would be too reckless if Saito-sama were suddenly arrive here and confront the youkai without preparation. I’m sorry again for what I’ve done with you.”
No, I wasn’t planning on getting rid of the demon or anyting. But the moment I say that, I don’t know what will happen to my life in this house surrounded by oldman and other Omnyoujis.
In that case, I’m going to have to say something vague here, return home at once and lock myself away.
As I recall, even the shikigami can’t follow me to another world, so I’m going to go there to hide until the storm subsides!
Although it will cause problems for the company, let’s just use my unpaid leave urgently. The question is whether the company will allow it or not…
No, that doesn’t matter anymore. I’m going to quite the company anyway, so there’s no poin if I can get leave or not.
Even if I got fired, It’s not scary at all compared to having my lifespan shortened by being targeted by this unsavoury family!
Be positive, think positively!
“Ah, yes. That’s right. I’m going to home first, so let’s talk about it later.”
“Okay. Then, I’ll take you home.”
“Oh, thank you..”
In this way, I hurried back home, thinking that it was just a trip to pharmacy, but it turned out to be a ridiculous thing. And at the same time I decided to raise my level in another world for a while and opened the [Story Mode].
