Subjugation of Demon King 2
I was shaken by this unexpected visit, but I could see why the king had bowed his head and begged me. It is true that the war between the humans and the subhumans is not over in a hundred years from now, and as the war escalates further, the damage spreads to the entire continent.
Perhaps in that future the Sage Argus would have failed to stop the war and to subdue the Demon King.
Even if the Demon King who was the cause of the war is crushed by the Dragon God or Hero, if the period of repression is too long, it will remain an old grudge and it will be difficult to solve the problem in the real sense.
…… However, in the present time, there is a being who knows the future.
“Please raise your head, King. Even if I hadn’t been entrusted with the task, I would have crushed the Demon King, and I won’t leave you with a grudge in this country. …… And anyway, I was found out that I’m a god anyway, so I’ll tell you, I don’t think that all the problems that have happened up to now are someone’s fault at all.”
Because I created this world, and the demons were also created by stories that went wrong without permission.
It can only be assumed that there were bugs from the very beginning that were based on the premise that they happened.
In this case, it is impossible to say that what the Demon King did was bad, or that the King who failed to prevent the Demon King is bad, or that anyone else was bad.
If it had to put the blame on someone, it could be said that the responsibility lies with me, who created everything.
When I conveyed this in general terms while concealing the app, the king, for some reason, rubbed his head against the floor and his voice trembled. It was like a confession.
“What a, what a merciful God of Mankind… Not only did you forgive my sins, but you also showed love to the demons …….”
I didn’t mean it that way, though.
Well, if you can accept it, then so be it.
“I’m glad you understand. However, I can’t just leave the Demon King alone… Because the battle is expected to be fierce, so I left the guarding of the castle to the knights to reduce casualties.”
“God, of course it is. If there’s anything I can do, please let me know. Even though my sins won’t disappear, I will do my best since I am forgiven by You. ……”
So saying, the king bowed his head again, and although there was some misunderstanding, the conversation ended and he left.
Woaaah, I’m tired.
I didn’t expect that my identity would be exposed by basic occupation skill. I don’t think the king would use me as a god for political purposes, but I have to find a way to hide my identity.
If everyone comes to worship God, I won’t be able to travel easily.
“Is it over?”
“Yeah, the conversation is over.”
For some reason, Momiji hugged her arms and fell into thought.
What’s wrong? I thought she was just rolling around all the time, but she was listening.
“Nah, Mister. Are all the people in this country so bothered?”
“Yeah, ……. Of course there are people who get the grease from this situation and enjoy the benefits. But most people are bothered by it.”
“So that’s how it is…”
What is it, isn’t it a mysterious look that doesn’t look like the usual chattering youkai?
What’s going on?
“Hey, hasn’t Momiji been avoided by human all her life?”
“I guess so. After all, I’ve done a lot of bad things in the past, so I guess it can’t be helped. And not only humans, my sisters also teased me about my weakness. I could only get a little bit of food, and I was starving every day. ……”
I don’t know what to say at all.
“I see. That’s really sad.”
“Yeah. It’s sad. However, this world is different. Everyone in town treats me well as a youkai, and Mister gives me onigiri every day. Everyone gave me a place to stay. So a little bit, though only a little bit, if everyone has a problem, I would like to return the favor. …… So, I’d like to fight the demon king or whatever …… What do you think I should do?”
Although beads of sweat were oozing from her forehead, Momiji frowned and groaned as if she was suppressing the urge to run away.
So that’s how it was.
Seeing the king’s serious attitude, it would be too late to regret not doing anything at a time like this. That’s what she wanted to say.
As I thought, this kid is good in nature.
She was a coward, but she had a heart that wanted to see what was important at a critical moment.
That being said, I don’t think it’s possible for Momiji’s power to be used against Demon King.
But even so, I don’t think it would be good if to keep her in dimensions storage.
…… Then what should I do?
With that in mind, I come up with something.
That’s right, just let her have the substitute doll and I’ll be relieved, that’s what came to mind.
I take it out right now.
“Whoa, what’s that?”
“It’s a substitute doll. It’s an item used by Onmyouji. As long as you have this, even if you are fatally attacked, you will be fine, but only once. …… That’s why I want you to take this and hide it and join the battle. It should be able to ensure more safety.”
Hearing the news, Momiji said, “Oh!” smiled with joy, and happily cheered for the distance from death.
After all, I’m immortal in this world, so it’s something I don’t need, and I’m glad I got it at the right time.
“Listen well, even if this is the case, you must be careful when participating in attack. Don’t forget that this is only insurance after all.”
“Of course it is. I don’t want to die for nothing. We don’t want to die in a rush, that’s what we want to avoid.”
Well, that’s right, how could this cowardly youkai despise her own life?
It seems that the last sentence is a lot of worry. I’m overprotective, I guess.
Well, then, the battle has been decided, and it’s almost time to go with Argus to crush the Demon King.
The meeting next door has just ended, and there was a knock on our door.
Let’s go out and save the future of this continent.
