“…What? It’s not true, is it? It’s a joke, isn’t it? Narugoa-senpai?” (Senri)
Senri, whose face turned pale, grabbed my chest and shook me as she clings desperately.
Speaking of which, I can’t look directly at her face, I can only look down silently.
It was too pathetic, her absolute stupidity.
“Uh, it’s a lie! Because even I have to use magic to keep working without sleeping! Oh, that’s right? You’re actually hiding something and sabotaging me, right?” (Senri)
“…You know as well as I do whether or not the… extremely hard-working girls would do such a thing.”
“Then…! Then why don’t they go home? If they’re tired, just tell me about it…!” (Senri)
“…Did you provide an environment where they could say that? However, you, the middle boss, work day and night without sleeping. So, there is no environment where they can say that they want to go home.”
Senri flinched after I pointed out what would naturally happen.
Of course, she doesn’t understand the feelings of the workers.
This is the reason why she was kicked out of her hometown in the Far East when she couldn’t organize her subordinates, but it seems she hasn’t learned yet.
“…Also Senri, I also came up with the [Heal] and [Awaken] method you mentioned earlier. However, I didn’t use it after I came up with it, if I didn’t end my job when I should, my subordinates won’t be able to go home.”
I don’t like to preach, but I can’t help it.
I’m not a big fan of lecturing, but I can’t help it. I spoke quietly to her, not in the angry tone I had used earlier, but as if I were explaining it to her.
“…Okay, Senri, look your level is 95, you can do almost everything—But in a dungeon, you aren’t doing things by yourself.”
“You are overwhelmingly lacking in awareness as a middle boss, working on a dungeon a dungeon with a far lower level than you, but with hardworking and earnest (employee) monsters.”
“So then……!” (Senri)
That was the decisive blow.
Senri’s hand grasping at me loosens, and she collapses on the ground.
She seemed to regret the weight of her sin, now that she looks back on what she had unknowingly done.
Senri the Myriad.
She does no planning, poor at bargaining, easy to be deceived, has no charisma, has no good point, is extremely clumsy, very stupid.
—And therefore, she is not cunning enough to take advantage of anyone.
She is unusually stupid for a Guardian and the Keepers, but also extremely kind-hearted.
I am ashamed of myself for being so angry.
“… After all, it’s just a misunderstanding.”
Yes, this is just a misunderstanding, just a comedy skit.
Senri, the middle boss, did not understand the limits of her subordinates.
As a boss, Senri had misjudged the limits of her subordinates, measuring them against her own level 90+.
And her subordinates misread her as well.
If she had faced her subordinates more closely, she would have naturally noticed such a simple misunderstanding.
Or maybe the (employee) monsters would have noticed it first.
But that didn’t happen.
In a word, it was a simple lack of communication.
“So then… I think I didn’t have to bother to talk to the harpies and the others…”
The plan to capture Inanaki Sacred Mountain was completed so easily.
I have to tell Sakura what happened and that our work is over.
The rest is this dungeon and Senri’s problem.
When I stood up thinking so.
Senri who is still kneeling murmured.
“…Then Narugoa wasn’t really a pawn of theirs…” (Senri)
As I was about to ask for the true meaning of those words, something shimmered in the corner of my eye.
I jumped back immediately and avoided the blade that came from the side.
I retreated while protecting himself using my [Thousand hands], and saw.
The figure of an oni swordsman standing in front of me.
“—You beast! I won’t let you touch even a finger of Senri-sama!” (Momiji)
One of the Four Heavenly Kings of Inanaki Sacred Mountain, Senri’s right hand, Momiji the Night.
The festivities at the foot of the mountain had the purpose of attracting their attention, but apparently, I was still noticed.
“Tsk… I wasted too much time…!” (Momiji)
“–I’m sorry, Narugoa-san! I lost her! But I’m here to help you!” (Sakura)
Sakura came out later and faces Momiji.
“Narugoa! I’m here!?” (Alraune)
“I will help you too!” (Kyuuketsu)
“Don’t forget me!” (Sergeant)
Alraune and Kyuu-chan in yukata and even Sergeant rushed in late.
“Sorry, Momiji… I’m late…!” (Yukime)
“Nyanya! Close call! …what is happening!?” (Nekomata)
In addition, they must have been watching Momiji and Sakura fight.
Even Yukime and Nekomata rush to the other side.
What terrible timing.
Both The Four Heavenly Kings of Inanaki Sacred Mountain and the Hero Party “Middle Management” have come and gathered.
Momiji shouts in the tense atmosphere.
“–You don’t know anything! You don’t know the noble purpose of Senri-sama having to reorganize the Inanaki Sacred Mountain!” (Momiji)
I ruminated on her incomprehensible words and actions, and then it hit me.
But, the mystery still remains.
Why has a Keeper, Senri the Myriad, escaped the pillars of the world and is working as the middle boss of Inanaki Sacred Mountain?
And what is she sealing away with her unique ability?
Who does Senri mean by “they” that she keeps talking about?
Looking at Momiji’s peculiar actions, it seemed that she was the only one who knew the truth.
Senri, who had been absent-minded until then, hurriedly holds back Momiji.
“Well, wait Momiji! It’s all over! They’re not enemies!” (Senri)
“Umm… what do you mean, Senri-sama!?” (Momiji)
“I’ll explain in detail later… Look! The keystone is fine! Their seal hasn’t been broken yet! that’s why–” (Senri)
Senri shows the keystone clasped in her hands to Momiji to persuade her.
――think about it now, things we’re not good.
There are two causes.
The first was that Senri, who was vulnerable to unforeseen circumstances, had become extremely flustered.
The other reason was that her body, soaked from the battle, had been chilled by the early morning air.
As a result, it had happened.
Senri let out a silly noise that was inappropriate for this dire situation.
Her brows wrinkle and her mouth widened
She let out a big sneeze.
It’s so strong that she comically dropped the “keystone” in her hands.
It didn’t matter who exclaimed.
Anyway, she let go.
A stone with the extraordinary ability to seal something as long as it touches her body.
“I’m sorry–!?” (Senri)
Senri raised her voice.
But it’s too late.
The keystone that has fallen to the ground makes a small shattering noise and gives off a dazzling light.
The seal has been broken.
“What is this…!?”
Everyone covered their eyes from the blinding flash of light.
The stone however shined for only a few seconds.
But those few seconds, felt like forever, then the light converges.
“What on earth……!”
I hurriedly rubbed my eyes and looked around.
There are only familiar faces near the keystone.
What the heck is going on, what has been unleashed?
Just as I thought this, I noticed something strange.
Why is the light shining directly from above even though it is just dawn?
“—It’s been a long time since I’ve had fresh air, and my shoulders are really stiff. It’s been three years, and it was a little too cramped.” (Voice)
We all looked up at the sky at the same time.
And I saw it.
The greatest enemy of the demons. There is a figure of a girl staring at us while Divine Light radiates from her whole body.
“Senri… sh*t, I didn’t know… No way, no way…!”
We were all in despair at the sight of the innocent girl flying through the sky on pure white wings.
It was the first time anyone in the room had seen her, and yet everyone knew her.
The angel of the gods, the ultimate weapon of the gods.
There is not a single person who does not know what they look like in all the legends and paintings.
“So, greetings to all you filthy demons.”
While ridiculing us, she pinched the hem of the pure white robe she wore and said deliberately and politely,
“–I’m Sharluel, the Power of God, level 72, pleased to make your acquaintance.” (Sharluel)
