Next to me, Esther screamed in amazement.
However, I concentrate and continued praying to God.
Did the prayer make it?
The white light erased the wounds on Themis-san’s body without a trace.
As I had finished activating [Magic Law]. I can barely endure and I am about to collapse.
I almost on the verge of fainting due to the overuse of magic.
Slowly I lay Themis-san on the cobblestone road.
Did the wound just heal, or did it extend his lifespan? I can’t tell just by looking at him.
All I have to do is wait for god’s response.
“Guu… I will … kill…” (Sarnus)
At that time, a weak voice reached my ears.
I immediately ready myself for battle and look back.
The demon man who regained his consciousness was glaring at me.
Fortunately, he is just able to spit out grudges and unable to even stand up.
“… Why do you have a grudge against humans?”
“Of course it’s because the humans brutally ate my son!” (Sarnus)
Esther gasped when she heard the man’s words.
Next to her, I can only look at him in confusion.
(Huh? We ate his son…)
“Then why are you in Yuster?”
“Because there is a criminal here. That was what I was taught.” (Sarnus)
–The blonde woman, a believer of Forcels.
The moment I hear him, Luka’s face came to my mind.
The face of that woman who invaded Finlis with silver wolves, committed arson, and spread paralyzing drug.
Blood rushed up to my head.
However, I immediately calm myself.
There is not enough information yet.
It might be my misunderstanding.
However, once she comes to mind, another piece of information follows in a chain reaction.
“Law is dangerous. There are ways to trick people’s perceptions. That’s why you can’t use them without God’s permission.” (Lily)
Lily had mentioned this when she explained Magic Law.
If the woman the man says was Luka.
—She can use skills to deceive people’s perceptions.
If it had been applied to this man.
—The sight that I saw and the reason that the man said are connected by Magic Law.
My nails pierced the skin of my palm.
“Toru. What’s wrong?” (Esther)
I couldn’t answer.
As soon as I opened my mouth, something would explode.
“… I will die and I’m not going to be able to avenge my son’s death… Damn it… Damn it!” (Sarnus)
There is no way to avenge his son’s death here.
If I tell him, his heart can escape from bearing a strong grudge.
But once he knew the truth, he was “the one who ate his own son”…
Then, he will die in despair.
I bit my lips.
I couldn’t move a step from the spot until the man died with holding a grudge against humans.
~3rd Person Perspective~
“Oh, you died earlier than I expected.” (Amy)
On the roof of the houses of Yuster, a woman in a black robe had her shoulders shook as if she was laughing.
The woman—Amy, peered into the crystal ball in her hand.
“Hmm. I’m not sure if it’s more than I planned? It’s hard to kill humans even though I used a level 60 demon.” (Amy)
Amy invades the territory of the demons and tricks Sarnus using [Cognitive Distortion – Fake Distortion].
She enthusiastically used Law on Sarnus. Then instigated him to attack the royal capital of Yuster.
Just by having him attack during the ceremony announcing the line of succession to the throne, she thought that a large number of humans could be killed…
Amy wanted to kill a lot of humans, not because she hates them.
She didn’t want to shame the king either.
The question “What do you think of humans?” It is the same as the question, “What do you think of cotton spores?” for Amy
It’s useless to ask her because she doesn’t care about it.
Amy took part in this act only to gather souls.
In ancient times, across the land, if you want to summon a mighty power that transcends human knowledge, the price has always been to pay using sacrifices.
Amy intends to use that power to revive the King of Gods sealed in Finlis.
However, contrary to expectations, there are very few souls gathered in the crystal.
“Hmm. Why? I thought I could kill a thousand or two thousand easily.” (Amy)
In the corner of Amy’s field of vision twisting her neck, a slime was moving.
“Hmm? …What is with the color of that nucleus!” (Amy)
Amy felt the presence of God from the purple core of the slime.
Looking closely, the slime has captured the souls that were supposed to head towards Amy’s crystal and returned them to heaven.
(—That’s why the souls don’t gather as I expected!) (Amy)
As soon as she noticed, Amy threw the knife in her hand.
The current body Amy is possessing is the C-rank Adventurer Luka. The knife heads towards the slime at a considerable speed.
However, just before that, Slime moved on the ground and escaped the weapon.
Immediately Amy tries to make chase.
However, when she took a step forward,
Amy immediately back steps.
She lowered herself and looked at the center.
“… Do you notice me even at this distance?” (Amy)
She felt a person’s line of sight from the center of the city.
It is the person who had once crushed all of Amy’s schemes.
“You’re really out of the ordinary. You’ve even killed the strongest warrior of the demon tribe… I think you are a little bit too loved by God.” (Amy)
Amy sighs cold sweat crawls on her skin.
If Amy’s existence is sensed by Toru, it will have a great impact on her future actions.
Nevertheless, Amy has become a wanted person within the Kingdom of Yuster.
She has to move without being found by anyone.
