The Goddess’s Prank
Quickly dodging the incoming claws, the hostile attack did not cause damage and
flew in front of my eyes .
The goblin’s cries resounded through the light blue walls of the dungeon .
I observed the excited monster, while flashing past the swinging arms, causing the
goblin to consecutively throw two or three empty swings .
Side step, backward step .
The ground was connected to various narrow passages, it was a wide squareshaped
structure . I was mindful of not being forced into the corner, while
concentrating on dodging the attacks . The unique warm atmosphere of the dungeon
licked my skin .
I do not know whether the goblin, that was swinging his short arms and
legs,chasing after me, was stubborn or just simple . I drilled pass my opponent’s
swinging arm, dodging the fast it unleashed . I was focusing on my touch of my feet
and knees while pushing off the ground, while performing a dance that never
intersects with the goblin .
The goblin was angry because he could not catch his opponent, its large eyes
shined brightly with rage, but just at this moment .
An alarming sound rang within my mind .
Was it the goblin who was screaming ——No, it was not because of this . It was
because in the corner of my sight, a monster was latched onto the wall and was
about to jump off .
A large shadow that completely enveloped me up to the head dived down!
I twisted my body and dodged the surprise attack in the nick of time .
What escaped my sight, crossing through with four legs, was a lizard-like
On top of its dry brown skin, a thin tongue came hissing out from the mouth that
was cracked open up till the side . Including its long tail, the full length should be
the same height as me .
The monster that climbs on the wall
It appears within the 2nd to 4th floor of the dungeon, it was a member of the lowlevel
Monsters, along with the Goblin and Kobolds .
While it was looking for a moment, I disregarded the goblin and headed straight
towards the dungeon lizard .
The dungeon lizard can use its four limbs to latch onto the walls and ceiling,
allowing them to freely climb around, so in order to get rid of this tricky monster,
who can move to a difficult location, you must wait until it landed onto the floor .
Because I was caught off guard, so I was not able to make a counter-attack, I
constantly dodged the goblin’s attack that was accumulated with anger, and at this
moment, I exploded .
I became a bullet .
“Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ! !”
The dungeon lizard that was facing away, suddenly noticed the crisis it was in, its
confused expression seems as if it wanted to flee from the spot, but in terms of
speed, I was the faster one .
I held my dagger, which was part of my equipment, in a reversed-grip, jumped off
the ground and plunged downwards . Forcing the dagger to enter the back of the
monster and the blade easily cut through its scales .
Kakin, Hitting it felt very tough, I do not know whether if it was because that hit
had damaged the magic stone, but the dungeon lizard that was pierced, trembled
and fell down as if it had lost all its strength .
Although it did not turn into ashes, but it couldn’t even manage a slight twitch at
The goblin cried . There were still enemies remaining .
I pulled out my dagger from the corpse of the dungeon lizard, and decisively made
a bold move . I watched the goblin, and removed the backpack on back——and let
the strap fall down from my shoulders .
Then, I imposingly threw the bag out .
“! ? “
The large luggage became a terrible missile . The Monster stared at it .
I stared at the backpack in the air that I threw, and it beautifully struck the
dumbfounded goblin .
The heavy crashing sound rang out, it was as if the goblin bounced up and flew
After having my
ability updated, plus the heavy loot in my bag, an item
thrown with all my power has the power to defeat a small monster .
The goblin held onto the backpack and continued roll and roll, roll and roll .
Finally, it gradually stopped rolling, the goblin had a convulsion for a while, then
its head was suddenly slanted .
I carefully watched the quiet monster, and after a while I confirmed the battle had
ended, relieved my shoulders and let loose a big breath .
I put away the dagger and relaxed my fighting posture .
I stretched my body on the spot, the condition of my knee……Yes, it feels good .
The injured leg can already move completely, saying that it was healed was also
okay . I could not help but show a eased smile .
“……Did I become stronger?”
My current location was the 4th floor of the dungeon . I confirmed that there were
no presences of Monsters in the surroundings while recalling the earlier battle .
Despite that it became a one vs . two, which was unfavorable to me, but I still easily
acted as the opponent for the dungeon lizard and goblin . My body’s response was
quite good, and I was able to not worry about the situation of my injury .
That’s what it means for I, an Adventurer, to have my abilities increased .
I could truly feel that changes of my
. Just as Kami-sama had said, I had
taken a big stride forward in terms of growth compared to before .
……The days are getting closer, I anxiously thought .
Then shaking off that anxiety, I prayed in my heart, hoping for that day to come .
Even if I am confused about whether my own strength is evil or just an extravagant
hope, I also want to chase up to the person that is standing far away from me .
Quietly, my thoughts about her began to fill up my heart .
Afterwards, I recovered the Magic Stone Fragment from the fallen Dungeon Lizard
and Goblin, today’s dungeon exploration is also over . I have to take into account of
the path to return, so it was about time to head back above ground . I once again
filled up my luggage, in order to exchange it to gold, then I walked towards the
ground, this is the fourth time I had set on this road of return .
I walked according to my memories, and walked up from the 4th to 1st floor for a
total of 3 floors of stairs .
I easily defeated the Kobold and Goblin that I encountered on the way back, it
should already be evening outside, the sky should have been painted an orange
color picture .
When I climbed up half of the floors until I reach the first floor, I could clearly see
other Adventurers like me, because there is only one exit in the dungeon, so
naturally Adventurers will meet up when returning from the dungeon .
It was visible everywhere that there are dwarves and elves that were wearing
higher level equipment weapons and armors compared to the pitiful armor I was
wearing, my voice was suddenly blocked, I held on to my psychological fear,
while quickly walked past .
(Speaking of which, Is Kami-sama not coming back today too……)
Kami-sama had already went to her friend’s gathering for two days, she, herself,
said that she would not be home for a few days, so it wasn’t something to worry
Perhaps because I haven’t seen Kami-sama, my heart felt empty .
What are you doing, Kami-sama .
“Ah, I’m here . ”
After crossing a extremely wide tunnel called the
, a large hole
that links to the ground appeared .
The height was approximately 10 meters tall, the diameter was almost the same
length, it was similar to a round cylinder shape . Inside the round cylinder, there
were gentle stairs in it, causing it to form a large spiral .
Several grounds of adventurers stepped onto the silver stairs, I also followed them .
After a while, I finally crossed the final step of the stairs . My sight was suddenly
widened, and the artificial smell entered my nose .
The white walls of the large tower
was constructed directly on top of the
dungeon, I am currently at one of their underground floors .
Currently I have reached a wide-opened space with a large hole in the center . It
was unjustifiably wide, saying that it can house thousands of adventurers isn’t an
exaggeration, and even after all that, there will still be extra spaces .
It was constructed so that it has an atmosphere of a temple, making it so that it did
not feel that there was a Monster’s den directly below it, how can I put it, it was
filled with a majestic atmosphere . If people say that this location as for the people
to offer a tribute to the Gods, maybe some people would believe it . This large hall
was condensed with craftsmanship .
The large hall was blue and white for the most part, the surrounding was filled with
names of adventurer carved onto the black rock slates, the long and thick pillar
separated the numerous furnishings that was impossible to be counted . Looking
above, you will see a corner of the ceiling being filled by the blue sky, there is no
artwork that can depict the sky more complex than this one .
Reaching this spot means that it is an absolutely safe area . I relaxed my nerves
naturally, and the hidden fatigue pressed onto my back .
A large number of adventurers and supporters, who were wearing backpacks, were
crowded together . In order to not hinder the people coming from behind, I moved
over to the wall . Suddenly, an unusual scene appeared in front of my eyes .
The huge cargo, in box shapes, were mounted with wheels on it, it is estimated that
it was a transport storage box . I remember that a place a little away from the
dungeon had several of these boxes .
If I remember correctly……, it was used to raid the deeper floors of the dungeon,
which is often used during
It was designed to store food and spare equipment, as well as loot and a large
amount of items .
I obtained the hazy knowledge from my mind and stared at the
boxes……Suddenly, the box shook .
I was surprised and stared at the box that could move by itself .
This action was just like a declaration that it wants to come out from the inside .
Without opening the boxes, you could already imagine what was rampaging within
the box .
C…Could it be……
Once I thought that the box could be considered as a cage, then simply activating
my imagination, I could guess what was inside the boxes .
(Inside was a monster?)
I could even hear the
low roaring sounds from within the box, and that
confirmed my thinking .
Is it really acceptable to have Monsters at this place……?
Babel, which belonged to the guild management, was known as the
dungeon, and during the
era, Monsters coming up to the ground was
common——The ones that were injured were not only just idiots, there were
destruction on the ground in terms of a global scale——In order to prevent future
problems, they constructed this huge tower, the main point was to prevent the
Monsters from leaving the dungeon .
Nowadays, because Adventurers had obtained
, they would go hunt
the Monsters themselves . Hordes of Monsters beings shipped up above cannot be a
mistake……However, I heard that the guild uses Babel as their base, and until now,
they have not slacked off on their surveillance on Monsters . They were entrusted
with the management of Orario, and until now they would ensure the city is not
affected and take appropriate measures .
In other words, even if it was a mistake, Monsters are not allowed to leave the
dungeon . Monsters leaving the dungeon and existing in the safety areas, this
should be impossible .
However, once I began to think of this, there was a group transporting new cargo
up the stairs from the large hole . I felt vexed and my confidence dramatically
“This year they will also host that . ”
“Monster Festival right……”
“What is the significance of tirelessly hosting that?”
“For acrobatics right……Boring . ”
“Ganesha is really unlucky character, being forced by the guild to perform such a
task, and have to flatter the public every year .
“That is because, no matter what you guys say, he is a
sama, ha ha ha!”
Amid the bustling noise, I overheard this conversation .
Because I have never heard of that phrase before, so I racked my head . Probably
forcibly capturing Monsters, shipping them box by box to the main hall is related
to the so-called Monster festival?
’s members were all equipped with an elephant face emblem . I, like
everyone else, were looking at scene of them carrying the various sizes of cargo .
In the corner of my eye reflected a head of short brown hair .
My eyes chased after the familiar silhouette . Yes, the person who acts as my
adviser, Eina-san, was there .
She is a half-elf with pointed ears .
Her well-proportioned face was currently filled with a serious expression, it seems
like she was seriously discussing with another guild employee .
(At work right……)
I held back, and did not say hello to Eina-san, who was busily discussing about
cleaning up the documents .
After reflecting about the earlier conversation I overheard, I felt that the act of
transporting monsters was approved by the guild .
I could tell that Eina-san and the others, who were guild employees, were related
with this work .
(Although I want to ask her what she is doing……but I should leave it for next
time . )
In order to ask these questions, and even bother her work, this was somewhat
shameful . If it was heard by people I have not seen or met ……It feels like I would
be laughed at for not knowing such an affair .
I harbored a few questions and left .
Remaining at the scene would not be any use, and my body had already completely
exuded the smell of sweat .
I took one final glance at Eina-san, then I headed to the shower room on this floor .
× × ×
“Thank you . ”
The person at the cashier watched as I left the headquarters .
After showering, in order to exchange the loot and magic stone into gold, I came to
the headquarters .
Because I knew that Eina-san was not here, so I quickly finished my business and
left the headquarters .
The outside sky had already been completely dyed into red .
Just by leaving the guild headquarters as if it was created like a temple in the main
street, the surrounding area became very noisy . Walking past the monument of the
headquarters, various races will crowd together .
Orario had a total of eight avenue that can be called the Main Street’s avenue, it
spreads from the center of the city to the walls in eight directions . If it was
compared to a cake, then it would be easier to understand the view of Orario . It
was just like a cake being split into eight equal parts .
To distinguish each avenue, people will call them based on their respective
location, just like North Main Street, South-East Main Street . Incidentally, Kamisama
and I are living at a hidden room inside a church that was built between the
North-West Main Street and West Main Street . Going along the West Main Street,
it was also possible to reach where Seal-san was working at “The Mistress of
Currently, I am situated at the North-West Main street, as expected of the street
that was facing the guild headquarters, most of the people that were walking in the
street were Adventurers .
Because if you want to dive into Orario’s dungeon, it is impossible to not perform
all the formalities at the guild, and obtaining the guild’s support . Without any
exceptions, all Adventurers must frequently head to the guild headquarters, so
naturally you will see many Adventurers at this street .
Based on the amount of Adventurers on the streets, accordingly there were many
shops that were trying desperately to attract Adventurers as their customers . Just by
looking left and right, what enters my eyes are only weapon shops or pubs .
Entering into a dark alley that was slightly away from the main street, there is a
suspicious item shop that was acting as the entrance, inside there were also other
various specialty shops for Adventurers . Inns could also been seen everywhere .
I was looking at the Adventurers disappearing into various shops, while walking
aimlessly forward . Even if I return back home, Kami-sama was not there, so I
could only waste my time .
“Eh? Ohoh, Isn’t this Bell!”
I had just stepped onto the gravel road, and a figure in front of me greeted me .
The person had a beautiful appearance, his height was also much taller than me . If
I could use some unsightly words to describe it, he is really a noble prince .
However, even if he had a different style compared to the humans and the demihumans,
the grey robe that he was wearing revealed it .
His unusual appearance, especially the unique divinity around his body made
everyone notice that the person in front was a God-sama . He is the only other Godsama,
aside from my
’s god Hestia-sama, that I had a deep relationship
with . I bowed down to Miach-sama .
“Hello Miach-sama, are you here to buy something?”
“Well, I’m only here to purchase the ingredients for dinner, making a god
personally get this……Bell what are you doing here?”
“I am taking a short stroll around the shops……Although because I have no money,
so I can only take a stroll . ”
“Wahaha! Being in a small
is quite painful . ”
Miach-sama, who was carrying big paper bags in both hands, laughed in a good
mood . Even if he was not a jolly person, his charm could be seen from his smile .
Even I, who was a male, could see it .
The Gods are an existence beyond us humans, no matter from an appearance point
of view, there were a variety of looks from children to elders, but without any
exception, all of them were well-featured . To the imperfect people of the Lower
World, it is said that we will always be envious of their perfect appearances .
Miach-sama’s blue hair swayed, he revealed a smile and the corner of my mouth
also eased down .
Then I remembered about Kami-sama……Hestia, so I asked a quick question .
“About this, Miach-sama, do you have any news regarding Hestia-sama? She went
to a friend’s party two days ago, and, she still hasn’t come back……”
“You’re asking about Hestia? Mmm……Sorry . I don’t have any clues, so I can’t
really help you . ”
“No,no! Please don’t worry about it . ”
After being apologized by a God-sama, I hurriedly waved my hands, this was
really ridiculous .
“First the party you’re talking about should be Ganesha’s Banquet……But I did
not attend the banquet that day . Maybe if I had shown up for a while, I would be
able to understand something . ”
“That, could it be because Miach-sama was not invited to the banquet?”
“No, they did invite me, but I, as the leader of an extremely poor
not have any time to spare . I could not care about the banquet that happened a few
days ago, and only excitedly helped as an assistant to produce our products . ”
, how do I explain it, in terms of fragile, it will not lose to
For an Adventurer like me who ran away from home and was able to build a
relationship with Miach-sama was because……Well, what people say about how
the lower-class companions bonded together .
“Ohoh, right Bell, I’ll give this to you . I have also mentioned it earlier, but this is a
freshly-made potion . ”
Miach-sama placed a hand into the paper bag, and from within, took out two tubes
and casually handed them over .
Then he said take it and shoved it to me, I took it without any hesitation .
The tall and thin container had a liquid that was like the deep blue color from the
deep ocean water, the liquid was moving back and forth like waves .
“Mi…Miach-sama, this is !!?”
“What, it doesn’t hurt to be kind to your neighbors right?”
His somewhat malevolent glance stunned me, but then his manly smile appeared
He patted my back and immediately squeezed into the nearby crowd .
“Fuhaha, from now on Bell, I’m looking forward to your patronage to my
Miach-sama waved at me while his back was facing me .
I suddenly understood and smiled at the silhouette of Miach-sama that was mixed
with the crowd .
I hurriedly bowed once again, then I placed the newly obtain recovery potions into
the holster that was equipped on my left leg .
runs an item shop, despite that the shop is small, it was
indeed an Adventurer-oriented potion shop .
Although I completely do not know how the potions were made . However, each
uses items were made using different methods to create a special
recovery potion, as if they were constantly trying to differentiate them from their
competitors and sell their improved merchandise . Miach-sama was a very good
example, I had often been supported by
through their created potions . Although it was called a
, but the
’s activities that were undertaken were completely varied, complex and
There are business-like factions that sell items, and there also exists blacksmith
factions that created weapons and armors, I have also heard that there are factions
that go catch fish in the ocean . Although the only ones that are considered as a
are the group of adventurers, but in reality, this is not the case .
To be blunt about it, Because a God’s Familia is only for a God-sama to earn
money, so it does not matter what activities it takes .
The way the
takes is determined by the God-sama, thus the faction it
will go into may be perhaps affected by the strong interests that the God-sama have .

that seem to form a country, so
there are a variety of
Just……No matter what they say, quarrels will break out between Familia of the
same faction, without having strong core members in the Familia, the
will not be able to establish itself is the truth . Naturally, it will also need the ability
to deal with unexpected events, which is also people such as Adventurers .
After all, Orario is a labyrinth city, plus there are many people who wish to
become an Adventurer, so in this aspect, there is a tendency of becoming stronger .
As for me, I was suitable to be an Adventurer that is able to quickly earn money
(As I have longed to have an encounter as an Adventurer), plus I also have no other
special skills for other occupations .
In the forward direction of my left, there is a weapon shop that was placed on the
end of the Main Street, I stared at it, and imagined my appearance of becoming a
Blacksmith, it was too disproportional, so I exposed a wry smile .
Once I could clearly see the equipment related shops bundled together, the figures
of Adventurers wearing heavy armor also significantly went up, I walked pass the
front of a shop and stopped .
This shop was a weapon shop that was twice the size of the ones next to it .
It was painted in a bright red color that was like flames, and in this street where it
was lined up, it was particularly eye-catching .
The heavy door was decorated with a billboard,and there were strange letters
written on it
Although I cannot interpret the text that were like the
, but I still
understood its meaning, it was the symbol that represents the world-renown
I was concerned about catching the attention of my surroundings while I, as usual,
approached the display window .
Separated from the outside by a glass, it was filled with various swords that even
outsiders could tell were precious . The emerald blades from the two swords that
were placed in a cross, were an great sword that boast a frightening long reach, and
a light sword embroidered with gold decorations .
I stared blankly at the sharpness of the sharp swords, then my eyes were attracted
by another dagger .
It was a pure white blade that could reflect the light coming from the Magic Stone
Lamp, it was diagonally mounted at the center of the treasure box, the dagger that
pierced the treasure box, exuded a bright light as if it was the true appearance of
the treasure box . The blade that was grinded from a monster’s teeth was not only
beautiful, it can also be seen that it was a dagger that was not inferior to the
surrounding weapons .
I secretly took a glance at the price tag, there were none that were not extremely
(Looks like it is still a dream to have it……)
I had my face planted onto the display window, this has almost become a habit .
Every time I head back from the guild, once I have free time, I will take the
opportunity to visit here .
As if it was designed specially for the top-class adventurers, the best weapons .
Although I understood that it was a treasure that would not match with me, who
was still wearing the equipment given by the guild .
But I still wish to use it once .
……Really want it .
If this thought was heard by the other adventurers, they will all be muttering
something like go train for another hundred years .
If I really wanted to desperately chase after Wallenstein-san’s figure, then will
there be one day where I will touch such an amazing weapon?
I foolishly imagined myself skillfully wielding those weapons .
I continued to stare at the pure white dagger within the glass, as if I wanted to
pierce through the glass with my stare .
× × ×
“……You, how long do you plan to do that until?”
The moment while Bell was peering into a certain store’s window display and was
anxiously hoping to drill himself inside .
Inside that certain store, a red-haired crimson eyed goddess Hephaestus issued out
a sound that seemed to be terrifying and tired at the same time .
She was wearing her
’s clothing while sitting at the desk, her voice was
said towards a kneeling round object that was bowing her head on the floor, no, it
should be the tiny goddess Hestia .
North-West Main Street Branch .
Inside the office of the famous blacksmithing shop with 3 floors, flowed an chaotic
“Don’t look at me like this, I am also very busy . ”
“Even if you are not noisy, curled up into a ball like a bug, my drive will be greatly
lessened and my work efficiency will decrease . Understood?”
“……Ah . ”
Her tiny friend continued to keep silent and remained at the same posture,
Hephaestus sighed .
The entire day .
This was the amount of time that Hestia had remained at the posture of bowing
down to Hephaestus .
On the day the
was organized, Hestia begged her to made a
weapon for her
’s core member, Hephaestus had refused on the spot .
It was not because Hephaestus was narcissistic, but the products created by highclass
blacksmiths that belong in the
could be considered
as the top quality and was widely acclaimed . Unless they were top class
adventurers or members of the
, no one dare to meddle with the created
. Taking a bet, Hestia should not have the
large amount of gold to purchase her own
’s creation .
Selling it cheap due to their friendship was already unreasonable . For Hephaestus,
as the position of the leader of the
, it was completely taboo to easily
take actions for the weapons created from their blood and sweat by her core
members, so she could not agree to it .
If she wished to order, then at least save some money, this was what Hephaestus
had said——This also implies that she should also clearly look at her own
abilities——Hephaestus did not tolerate it one bit and refused her .
However, Hestia, who had request refused, began to bow numerously after the
Banquet had begun towards Hephaestus . No matter how many times she wanted to
get rid of her, she would still annoyingly cling onto her, this made it difficult
instead for Hephaestus .
In this case, she could only just ignore her until she was willing to give up,
Hephaestus intended to ultimately leave her aside and ignore her . Hephaestus had
thought, once she was hungry, she would help back home .
Thus, two days later had come after Ganesha’s Banquet .
Hestia continued to sincerely request towards Hephaestus .
(What exactly made you so insistent……)
Hephaestus clutched her eyes, while making a gloomy face .
Even when she had dozed off, she would still maintain a similar bowing posture,
Hephaestus was almost unable to understand her friend’s feelings . Although it was
beside the point, Hephaestus was startled when she woke up, and almost fell down
from the bed .
Although up to this point, she had requested various things from Hephaestus, but
this time the condition was not the same as before .
How do I put it, stubborn, or perhaps her expression of desire showed a strong will .
“Anyways, what exactly have you been doing since yesterday? What kind of
posture is that?”
“It is the ultimate secret technique that no matter what you do, as long as do
dogeza, you would be forgiven, and no matter what you request, you will be able
to get it……I heard this from Take”
“Takemikazuchinokami . ”
Ahah……Hephaestus recalled the face of the god she had an intimate friendship
with, then at the same time, she scolded Takemikazuchinokami for instilling this
troubling idea into her .
It was already enough, Hephaestus sighed, she could not concentrate on her work .
She placed the quill onto the corner of the table, leaving the remaining work that
needed to be signed .
The light exuded from the sunset shone inside the house, it was very weak, this
means that it was approaching evening .
Hephaestus stared outside the window once, then she suddenly took up a serious
attitude with a straightened posture, and glanced at Hestia . Hestia was currently
revealing the back of her head .
“……Please tell me Hestia, why are you willing to do this up to this point . ”
Hephaestus used her fingers to cover the right half of her face, including the righteyed
eye-patch, while asking straightforwardly .
“……I want to become that child’s strength!”
Hestia did not change from the dogeza posture and vented out a response .
“Right now that child is about to change! Bell has found a target and he is about to
embark on a dangerous trip! The path for the trip is extremely dangerous, so I
wanted to have the power to help that child! I want to be able to give a weapon that
will open up a path for him!”
She stared at the floor, did not look at Hephaestus and continued to talk .
The act of requesting between gods was to expose all of your true feelings out
without concealing them, this is also a ceremony to allow the other to see the
other’s feelings . If these thoughts did not moved the gods, it means that they had
not revealed the truth .
“I have always been helped by that child! It can be said that he had been feeding
me one-sidedly! I am obviously that child’s goddess, but I have not done anything
worthy of being his goddess!”
When Hestia wanted to wring out her final thoughts, her body became more rigid .
“……I hate that I can’t do anything for him……”
Although the phrase was weak to the extent where it was feeble, but it was enough
to move Hephaestus .
At that moment, she accepted the feelings, that could not be fake, of Hestia .
“……I understand, I will help make a weapon for your child . ”
Hestia suddenly raised her head and stared directly . Hephaestus shrugged and
looked at her .
“If I do not agree, you will continue to stay there forever like a crowbar right . ”
“……Yes! Thank you, Hephaestus . ”
Hestia wanted to stand up ——Was it the recoil from the long period of Dogeza,
she immediately stumbled and fell down ——Seeing her friend’s red and laughing
face, Hestia pretended to sigh .
Although she also felt that she was overly spoiled, but to the current Hestia, she
felt that even if she had to help the other, it was not too mean either .
Compared to her stuffing herself within the house, currently she was able to at least
reveal a slight smile .
“——Let me make it clear to you, you will have to pay for the price . Even if it
takes decades or hundreds of years, you will absolutely repay the debt . ”
But, it should still be best to make a clear distinction between public and private
It cannot only be created just because it was based on the world-renown
, it must also make Hestia feel the pain as she wanted to
seek help from external sources .
If she had this sort of resolve, then it would be best to destroy it . Hephaestus stood
up from her chair, walked over staggeringly and used her thin fingers to poke at
Hestia’s nose .
“I…I understand . I will also do what I have to do, don’t look at me like that, okay,
I will use my body to prove to Hephaestus that my love to Bell-kun is real . ”
“Yes yes, I will delightfully wait . ”
Hephaestus closed her eyes and straighten up, while she listened to Hestia’s words,
she headed over to the shelves mounted onto the wall .
The slim shelf displayed various translucent small hammers .
“What weapon does your child specialize in?”
“Ah……A…A knife . ”
While muttering, Hephaestus picked up a crimson hammer . This hammer did not
have any excess decorations and place great importance to its functions,
Hephaestus placed it onto the pouch that she often wore at her waist .
Then, she headed to the transparent crystal box and opened the lock . Inside the box
were various types of metal pieces —— She selected a
that was exuded
a silver-ish light as the material for the weapon .
This creation work of this metal was lighter and harder than iron, and it was also
far more easier than iron to forge .
Even if it was the slender hands of a women, and did not have any special abilities
as a female blacksmith, it would also be able for her to use this metal easily, as
expected as the finest metals .
“H…Hephaestus, could it be……You will be the one to forge the weapon?”
“Yes, of course it is . This is an entirely private matter between me and you, I
cannot mix my
members into our problems . ”
In order to perform Blacksmith work, this building had one floor prepared as a
, Hephaestus was going to make a weapon there herself .
Do you have any complaints? Hepheastus said, she used the left eye without an
eye-patch to fiercely stare at Hestia .
“How could there be any complaints! You have been praised as a Goddess of
Blacksmith in heavens, if you are the one to forge it, then I will be extremely
happy about it!”
“Did you forget? This is not heaven, so I cannot use any
Based on the rules agreed between the gods, they were not allowed to use any
in the Lower World .
Although Hephaestus was a
that had created many
divine weapons in heaven, in the Lower World, she was the same as the children
, she was no different than an ordinary human artisan .
“I don’t care! You forging a weapon will make me most happy!”
She did not doubt Hephaestus’s abilities . Hestia’s unconditional acceptance of
herself made Hephaestus frown .
“……Then for the work that is coming up, please come and help . From now on,
you will have to work hard . ”
“Ahah, leave it to me!”
In order to conceal her embarrassment and her freezing up, Hephaestus issued
some commands, after hearing those words, she turned away .
While heading towards the door, behind her, Hestia seemed to be bouncing happily
and chased after her .
(……Ah, a request that I will not able to accept for my customers . )
Hepheastus’s mood suddenly heated up, she changed her consciousness from the
leader of the
to a blacksmith .
Hestia’s desired weapon .
A blade that will open up the road for an adventurer .
Have to create a unparalleled weapon that will not shame the name of
(……Although saying this)
From her memory, she recalled the data about the user of the weapon .
Bell Cranel, human race, 14 year old children .
He is the only member of her friend’s
, and received the
only half a month ago . That could also mean that as an Adventurer, he was a
complete rookie .
(A fledgling Adventurer holding the strongest equipment)
Strictly speaking, this was a request that had gone too far .
The weapon’s strength being too powerful will make the Adventurers decline, the
act of relying on the weapon will hinder the growth of the user, and will not allow
him to use it more skillfully than before . Also, it will not match the identity of the
user, this sentence was also important .
But even if she said this, if she created a weapon that will match the identity of the
user, it will only shame the name of
Compared to the identity of the god, Hephaestus feels that she was more of a
blacksmith . This natural disposition was rooted with the craftsman’s efforts, and
had not stopped her from creating weapons with her own hands, because this will
counter her own principles . So if she had to make, she would use all her strength to
create the most outstanding work .
Thus, she was in a dilemma .
(So, How should I do it?)
Referencing to her created works up till now, she was deep in thought .
Her goddess friend had brought a tricky request, while glancing at Hestia, who was
happily following beside her, Hephaestus could only mutter in her heart .

On the morning of the third day, Kami-sama still did not come back .
I was inside the hidden room in the empty church, eating breakfast by myself,
feeling slightly lonely . Then I began to prepare for today’s dungeon raid .
Even if Kami-sama isn’t here, the things I have to do still doesn’t change, it would
be better to say that when she comes back, I could make her happy by saying
, so I should actually work harder . I faced the figure that
was reflected by the wardrobe mirror, renewed my spirit and inspired myself .
I equipped a pouch that carried potions on my leg, placed my dagger at my waist
and lastly carried a backpack on top of my defensive gear . After wearing my
equipment, I said
to the empty house and pushed open the door .
(The injury to my leg has been completely healed, today I can dive down onto the
A few days ago, I went on berserk and broke into the depths of the dungeon, as a
result, I suffered great injuries and escaped, today I planned on getting my revenge .
Although I have not confirmed it, but my
should have greatly increased,
so I should not commit such a mistake like in the past . Just in case, perhaps it
might be better if I ask for the opinion of Eina-san .
I summed up today’s plan while I left from the basement . After leaving the church
that was like a ruin, the early morning’s fresh air surrounded me . I entered a small
alley and skillfully took a few turns, leaving the West Main Street . I accelerated
causing the scenery and the morning overlapped .
A staff employee was preparing the open-air seats, a two-man team of beastmen
were standing at the corner of the alley . The girl, that could overlook the road
through the window on the second floor of the store, could not be seen .
“Heyyyy——That white-hair, wait a minute, nyaaa!”
I reacted to the phrase white-hair, and was shocked, I could not help but stop .
I turned around to the direction of the voice, at the
entrance, there was a female cat person with cat ears and a thing tail, she
energetically waved her hands .
……She was the employee that was together with that elf?
Because I had been called a
so I remembered her clearly . I
looked around, pointed at myself and confirmed by saying
, she kept
I should have already returned Seal-san’s lunch basket……I wondered what
happened while I rushed over to the her who was dressed up like a waitress .
“Good morning, nyaa . I apologize for suddenly calling you, nyaa . ”
“Ah, no . Good morning……About this, what’s the matter?”
Facing her while she hurriedly bowed, I also exchanged a greeting .
I do not know why her actions seemed to be very educated, then she immediately
raised her request to me .
“I have something to request of you, nyaa, it is just a slightly annoying matter,
nyaa, this is for you . ”
“White-hair is Seal’s close friend nyaa, so I wanted to request white-hair to hand
something to that careless fellow nyaa . ”
Currently I was able to look carefully at what that female had handed to me, it was
a bag loaded with money .
It was a purse in a bag-shaped with a metallic buckle, on top of it was an engraved
emblem that I have never seen before, you can tell that this isn’t created by a
, the purple purse was designed very delicate and cute .
Ah, although it is so cute……However, I do not understand the progress of this
What does it mean by handing this to Seal-san……?
“Anya, if you just say this and do not fully explain, Cranel-san will also be
troubled . ”
This time it was the elf shop personnel to appear, she was about to prepare for the
open-air seats and walked over to our side .
Although this wasn’t the time, but being called by my name by the elf made me
feel somewhat moved, she remembered my name .
“Ryuu is an idiot nyaa . It was Seal-san’s turn to watch the shop, but she slacked off
and ran off to visit the festival, I wanted to hand her forgotten purse to her nyaa,
even if I don’t say up to this point nyaa, white-hair should also understand nyaa .
“So that’s it . I apologize for not explaining it clearly . ”
“Ah, no, I understand . So it’s like this . ”
The shop personnel called Ryuu magnificently ignored the cat person employee,
who had an assured expression, and apologized to me . My doubts had also
At that instant, the female called Anya that had been excluded from the
conversation, who was proudly shaking her tail suddenly droop her tail, her face
turned red and she lowered her head . Her body started tremble and shake, I started
to sweat .
“Please do not take notice of her . Thus can we request you? Anya and I along with
the other staff have to prepare for the shop, and there are no empty hands, although
I feel bad about requesting you who was about to head over to the dungeon……”
“It doesn’t matter to me……However, is it true that Seal-san slacked off?”
“Slacked off isn’t exactly correct, Seal’s situation is different from the ones who
were left here . ”
Hearing that Seal-san, who always look so serious, slacking off, I could not
imagine it, so I had to ask . Looks like she used her vacation and was different from
the ones who was in front of him . It was not because Seal-san was working
diligently at the pub, but it seemed to be because the female boss allowed it .
The main reason is because Seal-san comes to work from her own home, so she
was an exception and was able to have a vacation .
Then Seal-san seemed to have used this time’s vacation to visit the
“Yes, Seal went to see the events that were organized today . ”
It was a phrase that I heard at the Babel .
To me, who did not understand anything, suddenly became interested .
“Is it the first time you heard about it? It is impossible for the people who lived in
this city to not know about it . ”
“Actually I had just recently arrived at Orario……If you could, can you please
explain it to me?”
“——Then nyaa, let me explain it to you nyaa!”
The moment my words came out from my mouth, the cat person employee
suddenly jumped between us as if she wanted to restore her reputation and said .
“Monster Festival is held once a year, it is an super large event that is organized by
nyaa! Occupying the coliseum the entire day, and taming
the Monsters that were dragged from the dungeons nyaa!”
“Eh……What, TAME? !”
Listening to the shocking things she said, I was deeply surprised .
Taming……as in domesticating it? Those violent Monsters?
“Taming the Monsters is not that surprising, white hair is an Adventurer, nyaa, so
you should also have the experience, nyaa . The instant where the Monsters that had
been beaten stood up and exposed eyes that wanted to form a team……”
“No, about this, I have never seen it……”
I do not know what kind of eyes that the elf shop personnel was looking at me, but
she did not doubt it and interjected .
“Taming is a skill that exist, although it differs from each person’s qualities, but it
should be allowing the Monster to witness the strength and causing it to be
obedient . ”
Causing the monster to be obedient……This sounds like another world’s topic .
“The monsters in the dungeon have harsh personalities and are difficult to tame, so
generally most would tame the creatures above the ground nyaa……But because
’s core members’ strengths are not weak, so it was even
possible to tame the Monsters living inside the dungeon . ”
Even if it was me, I have heard of the name of the
in Orario, their strength is proven .
“That means they fight the Monsters, and the process of taming them is the show?”
“That’s the case nyaa, honestly it is just like a circus show nyaa . ”
However, the scene is extremely intense, the shop personnel added one final phrase .
As expected, it was still dangerous .
“We actually also wanted to see nyaa, but mama did not let nyaa . Seal said that she
will buy some souvenirs, smiled and bowed……but she left her purse inside the
shop nyaa, Seal is such a clumsy fellow . ”
“Anya, I feel that you are not in the position to say that to her . ”
Well, I probably understand . Leaving aside the topic of the gifts, not bring any
money will also be troubling . I have received a lot of help from Seal, so I should
repay it .
“Connecting to the Coliseum, the East Main Street should be quite crowded, please
head over there first so you can follow the flow of the crowd and effortlessly
arrive . ”
“Seal had just left, so if you leave now, you should be able to catch up to her
nyaa . ”
They said that my bag will only get in the way, so I should just store it in the shop .
I, who was as light as a feather now, took the purse, stared at the direction of the
East Main Street which was even further than the skyscraper .
Monster Festival……How does it feel?
I thought that I wanted to see it if I have time, while I headed out from the entrance
of the shop .
× × ×
Currently the street was filled with loud noise and excitement that made others
want to dance .
The current time was around nine in the morning, a lot of Adventurers had dove
into the dungeon, right now, the East Main Street had gathered a large number of
Countless stalls were placed either in the middle of the road or by the side, it was
filled with a fragrant smell, the sound of food being cooked constantly echoed in
the crowd . The street seemed to be decorated with ribbons and flowers, making it
look more busy than usual .
Above the heads of the people walking on the street was a rope that connected
colorful flags, swaying as the wind blows . The flags had two different patterns, one
represented the Monsters, which looks like a ferocious lion’s figure and the other
emblem was the
’s elephant head .
The beastman children, that was flushed with excitement, constantly pulled their
mother’s hand, I heard the melody created unintentionally by the footstep sound of
the crowd . From the sky, the sunlight that shone down also seemed to be
celebrating today, it was bright and dazzling .
Today, the East Main Street was filled with an festival atmosphere .
The crowd in the Main Street continued all the way to the end of the city’s
coliseum . A pair of silver eyes overlooked the crowds of people that wanted to see
the Monster Festival from high up .
In the café facing the Main Street, Second Floor .
The shop interior used wood to create a warm atmosphere, and she was sitting by
herself in a position near the window . Here you can see the entire street . In order to
not let others see her face, no, in order for her white skin to not be exposed to the
gaze of the crowd, she deliberately wore a blue, long sleeved female coat .
However, this cloth could not conceal her
The evidence was that despite covering her face, the attention of the people in the
shop was still focused on her . Every time her slender fingers traced the cup on the
table, every time her thin chin was slightly exposed from inside the hood, everyone
in the surrounding would be shaken up, there were quite a bit of people that would
become motionless after seeing this .
Freya did not have to do anything, yet she was able to
capture the hearts of the surrounding people . She quietly looked outside the
window while wasting her time .
The large amount of Lower World people were covered on the street……A large
amount of children .
Human, Beastman, Dwarves, Elves, all kinds of different race were inside the
crowd, you can also see a few of the Adventurers that were mixed along with the
Freya seemed to be confirming each and one of their faces while looking from a
distance, suddenly a loud banging sound .
Following the loud sound of stepping onto the wooden floor, a few breathing
sound approached this location .
She stopped and looked at the person she was waiting for .
“Yo, did you wait long?”
“No, I just arrived . ”
Raising her hand to quickly greet her fellow Goddess, Freya gave off a shallow
laugh beneath her hood .
It was different than the bright red hair of Hephaestus, her hair was a light scarlet
color . She put the sunset color hair that she was reminded of behind her head,
wearing an old shirt and shorts, giving an impression of a sloppy man .
Loki endured her yawn while her eyes was filled with tears of laughter .
“Hey, I still haven’t eaten breakfast, can I eat it here?”
“Please help yourself . ”
Loki held onto the chair while speaking bluntly, Freya revealed a slight smile, her
expression shows that she did not mind . The atmosphere between the two seemed
like they were old friends that knew the ins and outs of each other .
“After the banquet, you slept sufficiently right . Who told you to drink alone by
yourself and even get yourself drunk and pass out . Hoho, Hestia really is
“Hey, smelly big boobs, where did you hear this kind of news . ”
“Your lovely members seemed to have cause a big racket? No matter who talked
about this, your members are fully concerned about you . ”
“Damn, those mischievous brats, they really did it . ”
Loki was the one who called out Freya, she was also the one that decided on the
had passed for a few days, the reason for meeting
here was also for this .
“Anyways, when are you going to introduce that child to me?”
“What, I still have to introduce . ”
“It is still my first meeting with her . ”
The ones who came beside Freya was not just Loki, there was still one more
This beautiful blonde girl with golden eyes had a sheathed sword, standing in a
position as if she was protecting Loki, even Freya who was called a Goddess of
Beauty still narrowed her eyes and smiled .
“Nn, this is my familia’s Aizu . Is this enough? Aizu, this fellow is also a goddess,
go greet her . ”
“……Nice to meet you”
Sword princess, Freya muttered this name and stared at the female in front of her .
Aizu Wallenstein . Even amongst the gods, it had become a topic about
Familia>, she was a highly anticipated swordswomen . Her name and valor was
spread beyond Orario and even to the world, thus, there was actually no need to
introduce her .
Her lovely appearance did not match with the dangerous profession of an
Adventurer, the people that do not know anything and stand in front of her would
have never imagined that she had stepped through numerous Monster corpses .
The female’s face was exceptionally slim, Loki urged her
she listened and sat down beside Loki .
“How cute, and……ah, I understand the reason why Loki fancies this child . ”
The golden eyes and Freya’s silver eyes exchanged a gaze, Aizu’s cold expression
did not change and immediately bowed politely .
She seemed to not resemble a female, Freya could not help but revealed a smile .
“Can I ask why you brought the
“Eh he he he……! Hey you, since it was rare to have a festival, then I can have a
perfect and lovely date with Aizu-chan until I am satisfied!”
Loki loudly exclaimed while revealed a wretched smile .
“……Oh, and I thought that after this princess’s
was over, she
would finally return and calm down, but she immediately wanted to dive back
down into the dungeon . ”
“If you do not take a short break, then you would not rest for the rest of your life”,
Loki said while she stretched out her hand to the side and gently touched the girl’s
head . Aizu seemed to admit her mistake and looked down, allowing Loki to do
whatever she wants .
Freya saw that within Loki’s thin and scarlet eyes, there were warm colors inside .
Knowing how destructive Loki was up in heaven, Freya thought, she really have
“Then isn’t it about the time you explain why you’ve called me out?”
“Yes, there has been a long time since we just gossiped . ”
“Your mouth is filled with nonsense . ”
Under the shadow of the hood, Freya revealed a shallow smile, Loki also suddenly
changed her joking attitude and revealed a courageous smile . The atmosphere
between the two suddenly changed .
The shop personnel, who was bringing the menu over, really had bad luck, the
pressure created by the two Goddess——The silent and tremendous pressure
caused him to have a facial spasm, as if he was tied down to the place, Aizu’s
expression did not change and in order to not hinder the two, she observed the
situation directly .
“Let me listen, what on earth are you planning . ”
“What are you talking about, Loki?”
“Don’t act a fool, you idiot . ”
Freya’s gently smiled at the unmovable male shop personnel, he widened his eyes
and stared, it seems that he had gotten slightly red on his face as if he had gotten a
little fever, then suddenly turned around and fled .
When there were no one in the surroundings, she turned her head back . Loki’s thin
eyes revealed a vicious and sharp gaze .
“Your recent actions are quite big, appearing at a
that you hold no
interest to, from the tone of your recent conversation, you seemed to be collecting
information……What are you planning?”
“Noisy . ”
— Loki’s words seemed to reveal this . If it will affect my side, then I will hit you,
the scarlet eyes seemed to confirm her intentions .
They continued to fight against each other’s gaze . Freya’s slight smile seemed to
directly face against Loki’s gaze that was filled with murderous intent . There
seemed to be a dangerous divinity exuded from the two of them that could not be
seen . Noticing this, who knows when the shop only had them left . Aizu was
concerned about the two and felt that this wordless dialogue will continue forever .
Slowly, Loki released her strength .
She made the atmosphere that was there vanish, and said convincingly .
“Because of a man?”
The goddess did not reply, but only gave off a smile underneath her hood .
However, Loki seemed to treat the slight smile as if she confirmed it .
Loki uttered a sighing sound that would make others feel amazed .
“Ha……That means that you took a fancy to a certain
’s child, is it
because of this?”
The passionate Freya……This also means that she had loved males, it was already
a well-known fact among the gods .
If she found a favorite within the opposite sex——Even if it was a child from the
Lower World——She will immediately approach them and use her incomparable
to make the other to become her own thing . There were many that had
been captured by her magic-like beauty and became a prisoner to her .
This time Freya seemed to have taken a fancy from another
Participating in the
was also to identify the
Of course, if she was to take action against a child that had made a pact with
another god——Which means she wanted to snatch him away——It will
definitely lead to a large dispute . If the fighting force of the
then Freya would suffer large damages and cry while she headed back, so she
would avoid such careless behavior and first gather information . This was Loki’s
Freya did not deny the words of Loki .
“Really now, you perverted goddess, you still have that much motivation all year
round, you don’t care who it is and still want to do it?”
“Oh ho I’m really sorry, but I still have the ability to distinguish . ”
“Nonsense, you obviously still trick those male gods . ”
“Having connections with them brings a variety of convenience, you can get a lot
of accommodations . ”
Uh, Loki’s voice rang out loudly, she did not care and said you really have bad
taste, Freya replied by saying, only just a little and shrugged her delicate shoulders .
There was already no need to question her matter anymore, Loki issued a loud
sound and pressed her entire weight onto the back of the chair .
Her two hands held onto the back of her head and she gently leaned backwards .
Freya also picked up a cold cup and drank some water, the quiet space also became
more relaxed .
The atmosphere between the two had already changed to a bright and sunny
atmosphere, the sound of the bustling noise from the street entered their ears .
A gentle wind blew in from the opened windows and gently raised Freya’s gown .
“What’s that person like, the child that you took a fancy to? When did you find
Tell me, Loki increased her tone .
She requested it, tell me this tiny thing, she seemed to have gone into full throttle
in goading this out .
If you do not tell me, I will not let you leave, her excited eyes conveyed this .
“Because of you, I spent so much effort, so I have at least the right to listen to it . ”
Listening to Loki pulling up such a far-fetched reason, Freya’s left hand supported
her cheeks while she looked outside of the window .
On the main street, people were walking back and forth, it was an extremely
bustling scene . Freya seemed to be chasing the scene in her memory, under the
hood, her silver eyes gazed at a distant location .
“……He isn’t very strong . Compared to your or my Familia, that child is still
completely unreliable . He would be hurt because of very small matters, would
easily cry……that child is that kind of person . ”
However, Freya’s tiny lips continued to speak .
“He is very charming and pure . In that child, I have seen a brilliance that I have
never seen before . ”
Although it was not noticeable, but her voice did indeed go up a pitch slightly, and
from it, you could feel the slightest enthusiasm .
“Noticing him was really accidental . He suddenly appeared in my eyesight . ”
Freya recalled the memories of the encounter while continuing to organize her
speech . As if she was trying hard to reproduce the encounter with him and looked
at the scenery outside the window .
“At that time, it was also similar to the current scene……”
The daylight that came from the morning leaked out to the west side of the Main
From the opposite side of the road, a boy was heading towards this direction .
Yes, just like right now, it was the same as the one running around within her
Freya’s entire body froze .
In her pair of silver eyes, it was closely pegged to an
standard adventurer gear .
He moved across the crowd, sometimes he would slow down, sometimes he would
stop for a moment, then he rush forward .
He was heading in the direction of the coliseum, his goal is the Monster Festival
probably . As if he was surging through the crowd in general, the boy headed
towards the round and massive facility .
Freya, who was looking at the silhouette that was about to disappear, slowly, her
face revealed a charming smile .
“Excuse me, I suddenly remembered something . ”
“I’ll see you next time . ”
Freya stood up and left, leaving a stunned Loki remaining at the same place .
She used her clock and wrapped around her body and left the shop .
Inside the shop, only Loki and Aizu was left .
“What the, that fellow suddenly just went away . ”
Loki, who had a surprised expression, stared at the stairs which Freya used to leave .
Loki thought for a while then she made an “Eh?” sound, and was filled with doubts .
Beside her, from a short distant to the window side, Aizu also stared at the outside
“Aizu, what’s up? Is there something wrong?”
Just when she prepared to say nothing happened, Aizu continued to stare outside
the window .
Her pair of golden eyes, there was no doubt that it was the same as the silver eyes
of the goddess, chasing after the familiar silver hair .
× × ×
“Come, this is for you . ”
Once she received a tiny box from Hephaestus, who was wearing her work clothes,
Hestia could not help but exclaimed . She could tell that in order to make the
gorgeous box, Hepheastus’s eyes were still shining with brilliance .
“This should be enough to meet your expectations right?”
“Yes, completely enough! There is absolutely not even the slightest objections!”
With a Wow sound, while she opened the box, Hestia looked inside the box .
Inside, it housed a pure black sheath, even the dagger handle was even pure black .
The entire weapon from top to bottom was pitched-black, although the appearance
looks simple, but it was completed by a power far exceeding Hestia’s, and it was
the masterpiece of Hephaestus .
It looks like it was made exclusive to Bell, using nearly almost an entire day’s
worth of time to create this weapon . Hestia’s face emerged an never seen before
satisfied expression .
“Ah, right . The weapon should be named by Hephaestus right!? If it is possible, let
me name it! Right right, because this is the crystallization of Bell and my love,
let’s call it
How is that!?”
“No, it makes it feel like a cheap product……But, also, this is indeed a weapon
just for you, the
How is that? Hephaestus made this suggestion .
Nono, this is too embarrassing . Hestia who was elated suddenly covered her face .
Her twintails on the side of her head, seemed to express the owner’s mood, and
was happily and shyly shaking .
“First of all, the money is only lent to you, you will not be allowed to go back on a
“I know~ I know!”
Hephaestus let her hair down and put on a hairpin while she said this . Hestia, who
jumping in joy, also replied with a smile on her face .
When her friend had finished packing, she prepared to leave this place in haste .
“Are you ready to leave now?”
“Yes, Sorry for the inconvenience!”
As if she was sitting on a needle and was restless, Hestia’s actions were extremely
swift, she walked towards the door of the room .
“Hestia, you should also take a little break~~!”
Hearing the call behind her, but Hestia did not turn around and reply . She only
gently waved her hand .
Coming out from the tiny room located next to the workshop, Hestia moved at the
same speed and quickly exited Hephaestus’s shop .
(Ah~! I really want to quickly show this to Bell-kun~)
What kind of expression will that child make, just thinking about this, Hestia felt
extremely happy .
Will he be pleased because he received something? Or would he use respectful
eyes to look at me? Or perhaps would he be crying tears of emotions?
Hestia imagined various good scenes of their encounter, her happiness on her face
completely did not move on . She tried to move forward on the road while she
smiled, her entire face was as brilliant as if flowers have just bloomed .
Then after Hestia had calmed down for a while, she headed towards the North
West Main Street, thinking that whether if she should go home to wait for Bell .
Although it was extremely tempting, and she would like to present to him this
present as soon as possible, but in reality, she had no idea where he is right now .
If it was around this time, she was afraid that he would be hovering around the
“Eh? ……Ahhh, so that was it . ”
Hestia, who was contemplating, noticed a leaflet posted on a certain shop, the
corner of her mouth rose up and revealed a subtle smile that others would not be
able to see, her face was filled with pride .
On the leaflet, it recorded the agenda and the program schedule for the Monster
Festival held today .
(Today is the annual Philia Festival……If that idiotic youngster who just came to
the city knew about the festival, then he must be extremely interested in it and
headed to watch it……)
If that’s the case, if she also head there, perhaps they will be able to meet up .
Expecting the Festival venue to be extremely chaotic, if they want to successfully
meet up, then generally they would need a lot of luck . But this concern was
completely unable to stop Hestia who was jumping with joy .
I have already foreseen the actions of Bell-kun! Hestia showed off her baseless
confidence and decided to head over to the festival venue .
Her goal is the East Main Street .
That petite body and cute little hands tried hard to stretched towards the outside,
attempting to call the carriage that was headed in that direction .
Then, a youth who looked extremely young drove a carriage and stopped in front
of Hestia . She jumped on while saying “Could you please head to the East Main
Street!”, and told the driver her destination .
“Yes yes, understood . You also want to head over to the Monster Festival right,
“Ah ah, something like that . ”
Following the sound of a whip snapping, the carriage immediately moved . The
wheels constantly turned on the stone road and emitted knocking sounds and an
intense bumps, it had completely surrounded Hestia who was seated inside .
The Labyrinth city was extremely huge . Although it only housed adventurers and
Familia members all over the world, but its total area is also one of the largest
compared to the other cities . In this huge city, as a mean of transport, such as
carriages was also very natural . And now, businesses of transporting people or
cargo had also gradually been accepted .
By the way, the term
that was used to stop the carriage was decided on a
whim by a god, they do not know when it started, but it had spread, so it finally
became an establish term .
“I want to hurry over there . Although it is very crowded, but could you please be a
little bit faster?”
“Ah, I can not find a reason to reject the request of a Goddess-sama, please hold on
tight . ”
The youth readily agreed to accept Hestia’s request, and then skillfully increased
the speed while driving the carriage .
He avoided the crowds in the street and went through numerous small streets . In
order to head over to the East Main Street, he even used streets that the carriage
would just barely brush through . While she talked happily with the youth who only
had a maximum difference of 5 years compared to Bell, Hestia happily looked at
the vibrant streets due to the festival .
“Ah . Sorry Goddess-sama, from here on, it is impossible to continue forward .
“If that’s the case . ”
The swift carriage had stopped . East Main Street was just around the corner and
the density of the crowd had also increased by a lot, it really did not have any gaps
for the carriage to pass through .
Hestia, who was sitting behind the youth that bowed his head, immediately though
that if it was here, then there should be no problems and then prepared to leave the
“Okay, driver-kun, it is completely enough . I can walk from her now . ”
“I am really really sorry about this . Although it is dim, but if I had taken the alley
on the road, it would be easier to reach the Main Street . ”
“Thank you . Well, how much is the fare?”
“A total of 90 Varisu . ”
Hestia took out her bag and turned it upside down, and placed all the money inside
to the youth who provided the service .
“Fufu . There is no need to hand over the change . The rest is tips given to you!”
“No, um, there is only just enough money……”
Before hearing the words of the youth, Hestia had already completely ran off into
an alley . Although she felt a pitiful stare coming from behind, but she completely
ignored it and left the place .
The alley was slightly dim . However, there were not many people compared to the
outside street, just like the youth had said, it would be a smooth walk . Hestia held
onto the box with the dagger while she continued to walk down the alley .
Shortly after, another figure appeared in the alley .
“That, Could it be, Freya?”
At the crossroad, at the path of the other direction of Hestia’s was a female
wrapped around by a purple cloak . From the hood, you can see her beautiful silver
hair appearing . Hestia thought that she recognized that hair, thought for a moment,
then Hestia matched it to the owner of the hair .
“Are you also heading to the Monster Festival? Walking this kind of path, looks
like you are also in a hurry right?”
“……Uh, Yes . Because I cannot walk properly on the Main Street where all the
pedestrians are, so this is the only way I can avoid their eyes while walking
forward . ”
“Ah~ So being a
is also hard work . ”
To her, this goddess who was called the incarnate of beauty, even if she dressed up,
if she walked down the Main Street, she would certainly cause chaos to the
surroundings . She would also not be able to call a carriage ride, so she could only
use this kind of sneaky and low-exposure method to reach her destination .
Hestia hmm in her mouth and nodded towards Freya, who was slightly smiling
under her cloak .
“Ah, that’s right . Freya, did you see my Familia’s child? I am currently looking for
him . ”
“It is a white hair, red-eyed human……Right right, just like a rabbit!”
Hestia danced while happily explaining things about Bell . In contrast, Freya’s
smile disappeared from her face and quiet down .
However, the smile immediately emerged once again on her face and she pointed
down the road she had just came from .
“After saying this, I think I seem to have seen him in front of the East Main
Street . ”
“Yes yes, seems like he was directly heading to the Coliseum . Walk down this path
and then turn left, then you should be able to be in front of him~”
Hestia’s face immediately changed and she happily said “Thank you!” and
completely accepted her suggestion .
Hestia smiled and prepared to say goodbye to Freya, then she also embarked on the
new path .
Shortly after walking down the path that she was pointed to, the warm sun rays
shone down in front of the path .
It was still early . Hestia immediately ran to the end of the alley and reached the
East Main Street .
What awaits here was a dense crowd without any gaps .
In the midst of the crowd, there was the figure of Bell who was trying hard to surge
× × ×
Hearing someone call my name, I turned around and looked . For a while, I could
not help but widen my own eyes .
It was the missing Kami-sama, trying hard to push through the crowd and walking
quickly towards here .
“Kami-sama!? Why are you here!?”
“Hey hey, don’t say these stupid words . Because I want to meet you, isn’t it
Kami-sama, who walked up in front of me and stopped, suddenly seemed to be
proudly straighten her massive boobs and replied my question .
Facing this answer that could not be considered as an answer, I could not help but
have cold sweat .
“No, although you wanted to see me . It isn’t the matter……Then, what happened
“No, even this is great! Just now I was thinking of meeting you, who could
imagine that I really encountered you as a result! Looks like there isn’t a simple
fate between the two of us, Fufufu~”
……Looks like my words completely did not enter her .
In front of Kami-sama, who was completely immersed in her own world, I
completely did not know where I was thrown to .
“K…Kami-sama? Although I think it is rather rude, but can I ask you what exactly
have you been doing?”
“Hehe……You want to know? The reason why I am so happy . ”
“Yes . ”
Just when I said this, Kami-sama seemed to have stopped all conversation .
She looked around the crowded and bustling streets due to the festival, then she
said just wait a minute and stared up into the sky, as if she was considering
“……Yes, we are rarely together . As expected, I cannot tell you right now . ”
“I want to leave the fun and happy things at the very end . ”
I completely did not imagine this situation, and during the moment where my face
had froze, Kami-sama grabbed onto my hand and pulled me while heading forward .
Because I suddenly had a feeling of being gripped on my right hand, I was stunned
and my heartbeat also slowed down .
“Let’s have a date, Bell-kun . ”
Afterwards, Kami-sama turned around, smiled and said this to me .
“Ah, yes . This street is also very festive, there is no reason for us not to have fun
“No, but, date……”
“Fufu, Then let’s go, Bell-kun!”
Seeing me, who had become completely flushed, Kami-sama seemed to become
even happier and had a pleased smile . Her tiny and soft fingers firmly grasped onto
my hand, leading me through the bustling crowd .
The shops on both side of the road were very active . Various sales of goods that
was most striking was the snacks which you eat while you walk, and of course toys
and jewelry related to the Monster Festival . There is also shops that sell real
weapons, as expected of the Labyrinth City .
In the distant skies, fireworks were lit up, although it was in a grand scale, but due
to the distance, the sound was muffled and it blossomed under the clear sky, it was
a wonderful feeling .
“P…Please wait a minute Kami-sama!? Actually, I have a small task that I have to
“Eh? Is something the matter?”
“Yes, so I am currently looking for someone……!”
“Okay, then we can have a date while we look for someone! Having fun while we
complete the task, isn’t it killing two birds with one stone . Ah, old man, please
give me two jam pancakes . ”
It was so simple to turn over my reason, I felt extremely troubled .
If that’s the case, I don’t have any face to see the shop personnel who requested me
to deliver the purse to Seal . If the fact that I disregarded the task because of a date
was known, it will lead to resentment .
(There is also……)
No matter what, I have to let Kami-sama be aware of this matter .
The two hands were constantly holding together, making me feel very nervous .
Also, I noticed that I was attracted to the cute expressions of Kami-sama that I
have never seen before .
Although the age difference was rather strange, but Kami-sama’s behaviors and
actions matched her own body’s appearance . Naively looking at the goods inside
the shop, her eyes twinkling, it was completely different than the Kami-sama who
usually came to meet me . Although she was only giving off a slight smile, but how
should I say it, that, uh……It was extremely cute .
Kami-sama really is a beautiful girl . Seeing the completely different performance,
this renewed my thoughts .
Looking at her chest rhythmically bounce around, I was really, extremely troubled .
Especially because the other was a Goddess who others fear……
“Bell-kun, Bell-kun . ”
“Yes . What is it?”
My mind was currently plagued with a variety of things that troubled me, and it
was about to be attacked by concentrated firepower .
With a smile on her face, Kami-sama brought the newly bought jam pancakes in
front of me .
The hands that was gripped together was loosened, and the two hands were holding
the snacks . That tiny and cute body tried hard to extend upward, as if she wanted to
bring the jam pancake over to my mouth .
I can not help but cry out, I used all my strength to widened my eyes .
“Kami-sama, what on earth is this!?”
“What’s the matter, it’s just Ahhh~ . Ahhhh~ . Because I also wanted to try out this
thing . ”
A tremble that I could not resist completely dominated my entire body .
The words that I originally wanted to say to Kami-sama completely disappeared, I
completely could not speak . My mouth opened and closed, and my entire face
turned red .
Although I knew that this kind of feeling was rather good . But was it because of
the atmosphere of the festival that caused it? Or was it because Kami-sama was too
“Eh? What is it, Bell-kun? Because I ate it, so you can’t eat it?”
“N…Nooo!? It is completely not the case, that……”
I was slightly shy……No, that’s not the case . Rude, too rude!
The other is a Goddess!? If she was to let me eat it like that, then I would have
While I felt sorry for the unreasonable action, my eyes continued to roll around,
and I was so embarrassed that I wanted to find a hole and hide . Then, I was aware
of the existence of my own share of jam pancake .
“K…Kami-sama, it is difficult to accept that piece!? Why don’t I just eat my own
“……Let you escaped . ”
Looking at the jam pancake that belongs to me, Kami-sama’s face seemed to show
Then, she immediately said “Fine”, and her smile re-emerged .
“Then, you’re welcome . You will feed me right?”
Kami-sama, who closed her eyes, opened her tiny mouth .
I, who had become frozen in that instant, seemed to have been hypnotized and
slowly moved my jam pancake over……
In the next instant, a bite .
That tiny pair of lips, as if it was giving off a gentle kiss continued to eat the snack .
Looking at that innocent child-like action, I, who acted like an idiot, blushed
without hesitation .
Kami-sama, who opened her eyes, just seemed to show off a mischievous smile,
and finally, she took a large bite out of the pancake . As if she was tasting how
delicious it is, and her soft cheeks continued to chew at a rhythmically speed .
What kind of expression do I currently have……
On her cheeks, there was a white colored jam .
Seeing the sauce from the snack overflow onto Kami-sama’s face, I reflexively
raised my hand .
Wanting to use my finger to wipe off the white sauce, and the moment where I was
about to touch her, I stopped .
Because I thought that wouldn’t this carefree action be too rude to Kami-sama .
However, I currently did not have the handkerchief that I used to wipe my face
with me .
I awkwardly withdrew my hand……But those tiny pair of hands seized my hands
once again .
“Fufu~ Help me take it off . ”
Kami-sama’s attitude was extremely calm, and she let out a slight smile . Her
cheeks were slightly red, but you can see it was filled with love .
I, who was completely attracted to the slight smile of Kami-sama, awkwardly
stretched out my hand and gently rubbed it on Kami-sama’s cheeks .
Kami-sama’s cheeks which was also dyed red seemed to be tickled and she closed
her eyes .
It felt like steam was about to come out from my head .
My entire body was numbed . It was extremely embarrassing . No, it should be that I
felt extremely shy .
I seemed to have been completely tossed around by Kami-sama .
“Okay, Bell-kun, let’s continue . This time we are eating potato croquettes!”
“We are still doing this!?”
“That’s of course . There isn’t many opportunities that we can both enjoy together
at the outside . ”
Then, I was holding hands again with Kami-sama and being dragged forward .
Although from a variety of angles, I had already completely accepted this fate .
However, when I recovered, I noticed that my mouth naturally formed a smile .
Thinking carefully, perhaps it was really what Kami-sama had said .
In order to support this Familia of two people, I had constantly wandered around
the dungeons, Kami-sama also had to go to work .
Calculating from this, the two of us doing something together had not happened so
Trying hard to squeeze through the gaps of the crowd, together with Kami-sama
we moved forward along the Main Street .
Although I kept a wry smile, but to me, I was still looking forward to be tossed
around by a happy Kami-sama .
× × ×
Following the overwhelming cheering sounds, this side had also began .
As the dust was raised, a monster that was freed from its chains roared as it rushed
forward . In front of the huge pig-class monster that was two meter tall, the
Boar>, was a single female that was fully alert . Her short hair that followed her
swayed in the wind, she narrowly avoided the monster’s attack .
The cheering sounds from outside the scene overlapped and increasingly became
louder . The enthusiastic spiral of cheering sounds was surrounded by the
accommodated 50 000 audience .
This was the circular coliseum that existed in the East Main Street .
Under the countless passionate attention, the main event of the day, the Monster
Festival kicked off .
In the center of the field was a monster that was captured just for today, and it had
completely released its violent nature . It headed towards the prey in its eyes and
used all its efforts to move and kick using its four limbs . Facing this kind of boarlike
rush that could easily crush through stone,
’s tamer easily
dodged it and enjoyed the cheers issued from the surrounding .
If you were to look at it, it was similar to bullfighting . A person wearing gorgeous
clothes, holding a cape and a whip, facing against the rampaging monster
numerous times, and passing through .
In this Monster Festival, she was given the task of not defeating the monster, but to
tame it . Causing the monster that could easily kill her to become tame, and making
it become completely obedient, this will make the citizens feel awe, respect and
excitement . All sort of unforeseen circumstances would make their palms sweat .
The monster loud roar, the host using a loud speaker that was created through
Magic Stone to act as a commentary and the sounds of the audience’s cheers . The
venue had completely entered a passionate state .
“It has begun……”
Feeling the grand occasion in the coliseum, Eina said softly .
She, who was in stand-by at the coliseum, could hear the awe voices from the
inside, and her skin could even feel the vibrations . Thus, she turned around and
looked at the building behind her .
Currently, Eina and the other guild employees were mobilized to the coliseum .
Their main responsibilities are for the admission and guidance of the audience .
This was also mainly to assist the
’s work .
Monster Festival is not a event that the Gods could hold on a whim . But because
had promised to organized it , so that it can proceed
smoothly . The planning was led by the guild .
(Although I should not consider such things……But why do we have to organize
such a festival)
The opening of Monster Festival was decided by the higher ups of the guild . Eina,
who was at the bottom of the organization, should not complain about this, but her
heart still does not feel at ease .
Although it does not pose a threat to the city, but the action of transporting the
dungeon monster above the ground should not have happened . Eina herself seemed
to reject it . If it was for the management of the Labyrinth City, and for the better
peace of the city, then no matter how important it is, they should not throw in these
unsafe seedlings into the basket .
Monsters, they are terrifying creatures .
Could it be that they want to use the Philia Festival to emphasized that they could
be friendly with monsters . Just for the sake of entertainment and was willing to
take on a risky action——If that’s the case, then to the guild—— Eina thought to
“Also……Is this a circus or is it a performance, it’s so loud that it hurts my ears . ”
“Eh? Eina, what are you talking about?”
Facing her colleague, who heard her mutter to herself, Eina gave off a wry smile
and shook her head, expressing that nothing had happened .
This city, Orario, had incorporated a large amount of Familias and also a vast
majority of adventurers . Although the name of adventurers sounds good, but in
reality, most of them are just brutal and lawless people . Because of their poor
etiquette, it was easy for them to have conflicts with the general public, and
causing problems regarding the order of the place .
To the guild, who aimed to produce a good efficiency of recycling the dungeon’s
Magic Stones, these adventurers that explore the dungeon is an essential exist to
their operations . So objectively speaking, the city’s management can only turn a
blind eye to the Monster Festival, even if they were criticized by the public .
Because of this, there were slanders within Babel a few days ago, Eina herself
could only listen to it .
(No matter what, please do not have anything happen, that is enough……)
During the period when the Monster Festival is held, it was always easy for her to
be in cold sweat . Until the end of the Monster Festival, she would always feel
paranoid . Perhaps, it was because she was too conservative?
I also want to see! The colleagues beside her murmured, Eina used her hand to lift
her forehead and sighed, feeling a sense of annoyance .
“There isn’t any……”
“As expected, she had already entered the coliseum?”
From Eina’s gaze, a familiar person entered . That was Bell .
For the outer location of the coliseum, Bell seemed to be looking around for
someone . Beside him, it should be the Goddess of his Familia .
Eina glanced at her colleagues standing behind her, and felt that it should be okay
if she left for a while . Then she headed to the young male adventurer that she was
responsible for .
“Who is this, Bell-kun . This half-elf?
Bell, who was slightly surprised, could not help but give off a wry smile . Eina still
first introduced herself to the Hestia who was beside him .
“I belong to the guild management section and is responsible for Bell Cranel’s
dungeon exploration adviser, Eina Tulle . It is the first time meeting you, and please
to meet you . Goddess Hestia-sama .
“Ahah, so that’s it . Thank you for taking care of Bell-kun . ”
Once her introduction was over, Hestia seemed to understand everything and
waved her hands . Eina respectfully bowed her head again, Bell, who looked at the
situation between the two, asked Eina a question .
“Why is Eina-sana here?”
“The guild is also responsible for the Philia Festival, that is to help assist the
management for the venue . And I am responsible for guiding the guests . Bell-kun
also came see the festival right?”
“No, I am only looking for a person……About that, a person that is wearing a
female maid outfit……Or not . Right, Eina-san, did you see a female human that
was having troubles with money?”
“Uh, I am not clear about that . ”
Listening to this strange description, Eina did not conceal her wry smile . Bell also
replied with “Is that so”, then scratched his head .
Entering the coliseum required a certain fee, so the possibility of the person, that
had not brought money, that Bell was looking was unlikely to be inside . After Eina
told this analysis to Bell, he nodded and expressed that he understood .
“Then, I’ll look around again . Perhaps, we just missed each other . ”
“Yes, if I see that individual, I will call her to wait here, so if you could not find
her, please come here again later . ”
I am really grateful . Bell bowed down and prepared to leave . However, Hestia,
who came together with him, continued to stare at Eina, standing there and
completely did not move .
Eina slightly tilted her head, then she slowly began to talk .
“It is the adviser, right~”
“Yes, is there any problems?”
“Using your position to ogle on Bell-kun……You have never done these things
At the very beginning, Eina completely did not understand what she was talking
about and had a stunned expression .
Looking at Hestia, who had a serious expression while inquiring this, she calmly
let out some words from her mouth .
“I have always separated my private and official matters……”
“Yes, I’ll believe in your words . ”
Hestia seriously nodded, her two hands gently made a tapping sound .
Then she pulled Bell, who was surprised, and left the location .
Was she being warning me? Eina looked at the two figures and could not help but
Suddenly she felt a slight headache and went over to her colleagues .
“Really now, what are they doing, those guys . ”
“If it’s complaints, then say them later, let’s first move those people . ”
The staff were quite noisy .
It felt that the atmosphere had completely changed, Eina was completely surprised .
“Excuse me, may I ask what has happened?’
“Ah . The staff that was situated at the West Entrance seemed to have collapsed . ”
“Those people still seemed to be conscious . However, it was like that their bones
were extracted from them and they slumped down onto the ground, their entire
body was out of strength……Ah, we estimated that they drank too much wine
yesterday and completely did not care about today’s work . Seems like that they
cannot continue to guard, so we are sending some people over from this side .
The beastman male staff placed his hand on the back of his head while saying this .
Hearing this, Eina felt a strange feeling within her heart . It was an unpleasant
tension that made her shiver .
(It is because I’m too nervous……It should be so right?)
The audience’s loud cheers and screams mingled together around her ears, Eina
lifted her head and stared at the large coliseum in front of her .
It seems like the roaring sounds of the monster that came above the ground
constantly bit hard on Eina’s eardrums .
× × ×
This was a location that was dark, damp and with a faint light source .
Hanging from the ceiling was a Magic Stone Lamp, casting a faint glow into room
and revealing the shadows of bits and pieces . 1 Meter cubed wooden boxes were
lying scattered on the floor, the surroundings was also filled with clutters . On the
wall, there were a variety of items, with the vast majority being weapons .
In this dim space that looked like a warehouse, there were many
Stables> . Many monsters were locked there with locks . The sound of the metal
being scratched at was frequently sounded in the room . Including a huge dog-type
monster that used its own nose to push through the gaps, using its teeth to scratch,
and issuing a humming sound .
This was set up to be a large room underground . It was within the coliseum’s arena,
and could be called the control room for the monsters .
The monsters were transported by the person responsible to the central arena . Once
they were about the reach the ground, then they will unlock the shackles of the
monsters, leaving it to the tamer in the central arena to tame it .
The earthquake-like cheers from the audience seemed to have come extremely far
away, and echoing within this space .
“What are you doing? The next show is about to begin! Why is the monster not up
Following the sound of the footsteps, the large door was slowly opened . A female
excitedly walked into the room .
She was in charge of the preparations and monitoring behind the scenes for the
Festival . As the show time was approaching, but the monster still had not been
shipped out, she felt anxious and rushed down to see the situation .
Her angry questioning did not receive any response .
“Eh……Hey, Hey . What happened!?”
In the room in front of her eyes were her companions lying down in a limp posture .
The four porters that were responsible for this area were all frozen in a limp
She rain in panic to the nearest one to observe the situation . Ah, they were still
breathing . There were no external injuries either, she lifted up her head to observe
the others, and they were all in the same situation . Everybody’s lives were not in
(Is it the monster’s poison, No . This is……!?)
Slightly irregular breathing . Slightly flushed cheeks . Their eyes completely did not
have any focus .
It was a symptom that she had never seen before . Watching the expression of her
companion that was lying on the ground, she felt a slight chill coming from behind .
About this abnormal situation they were caught up to, she did not have any clue .
What on earth had happened here? She stood at the same place and was fully
examining the room filled with monster roars .
Accidentally, she felt the air behind her began to shake .
This was not the feeling of a vibration of a sneak attack, but it seemed to be a
vibration of someone calmly and slowly walking around . Because there was
completely no malicious intent, so the reaction speed also became extremely slow .
A certain person was currently standing right behind her .
“Don’t move, oh?”
“————Ah . ”
In the next instant, her eyes were covered from behind .
A pair of smooth and slender hands covered her eyes .
Afterwards, an impact that felt like a spasm instantly went through her entire body .
The fragrance that eroded through her noise, and the intimate contact with the soft
flesh, conveyed through her body temperature, causing her senses to be completely
paralyzed . This unfathomable
completely surrounded her .
This was an unbelievable degree of
Just from the sight of it, it was able to initiate the
It was absolutely impossible . It was impossible to resist . Her consciousness also
She was deprived of her own will .
“Where are the keys?”
“The keys to the monster stables, where are they?”
The sound that gently blew into her ears, her neck even felt a tiny shiver .
Faced with these words, that seemed to directly pierced through to her mind, which
was repeated twice, her own body seemed to fully obey as if it was a conditioned
Her trembling left hand slowly dropped down, and took out the key chain from her
waist . Following the sound of the keys shaking, she brought the keys to shoulder
“Thank you . ”
The keys were taken away, the arm that covered her eyes disappeared . However,
her eyes had already completely lost its ability to function, she, who had loss her
own will, could not see anything .
She felt that she person behind her leave, and her hands and legs felt weak . She fell
down onto the floor and sat down on her butt .
As if the scene was reproduced once more, she had the same outcome of her fellow
“I’m sorry . ”
Freya left the female who had completely collapsed .
Monitoring the West Entrance, the guild employees and the adventurers from the
. Freya had neutralized members of both organization and
directly invaded to this location .
Freya did not have any combat abilities . In the Lower World, she was a completely
powerless mortal .
However, she still had her share of extraordinary
, no, it should be that
she, herself was
That is a type of power that could not be resisted using the logic . Humans and
demi-humans, and even Gods would be dominated by this overwhelming power .
As long as she wants it to happen, there is no person that could resist into being
dragged into an endless abyss of ecstasy .
This time, she used the beauty in a negative way .
No matter male or female, as long as their consciousness was uncontrollable, then
they would be deprived of their strength . This was the effect of the
Freya had attempted to use .
As long as they were taken up by surprise, she was a person who was able to do
such a degree of things .
Freya stopped at the center of the room .
The surrounding was filled with large and small Monster stables . The Monsters
that were captured were extremely excited and violent . Their roaring sounds
surrounded Freya from all directions .
However, the moment she took off her cloak, all the roaring sounds stopped .
The peerless beauty was exposed to the outside .
The snow-like white and soft skin impacted the Monster’s visually, filled with the
fragrance it had completely constrained their actions . The Monster’s eyes seemed
to be controlled by the shiny silver hair and the silver eyes .
Even if it was these ferocious Monsters, they still could not get rid of her influence
of beauty .
“……I’ll pick you . ”
Those pair of silver eyes looked at the Monsters carefully, as if they were carefully
selecting one . Finally, it stopped at a location .
The Monster was completely covered with pure white hair . On its burly body were
two shoulders and two wrist with muscles bulging from it and was particularly
prominent . It’s silver hair was just like Freya, extending to the back like a tail .
The Ape-like monster
’s eyes were rolling, its breathing was also
becoming shorter . It felt the eyes of the Goddess .
“Come out now”
Freya used the keys in her hand to release the locks of the Monster stable .
The Silverback obeyed the orders of the goddess and opened the iron fence and
came out step by step . The lock that was opened shook with a rattling sound .
Letting the Monster out, no matter what, it was an extremely dangerous behavior .
This free-spirited goddess’s action would easily cause a lot of to others .
There was only one goal .
(That child also came here……)
The matter that Freya had thought about, was the matter about the young boy Bell
(……Ah ah, really . I wanted to watch the growth of that child for a while
The matter about Bell’s astonishing growth speed, Freya obviously knew about it .
Although she currently did not know the reason, but using her goddess’s eyes, she
was able to see that he was currently growing at a rate that was incompatible with
the common sense .
(……In the end, I still have to do this type of extra matters . )
Freya let out a child-like smile .
It was a feeling as if she wanted to tease him .
She wanted to see which will happen when the other will receive her teasing, what
kind of reaction will it be, and for her own entertainment .
Really now, this was something that a child would do .
However, currently she could not stopped it anymore . The first time meeting him,
that impulse burned her heart and caused even love, this drove Freya to do these
kinds of things .
Wanting to see the boy’s puzzled expression, wanting to see the boy’s crying
expression ——And more importantly, wanting to see the boy’s heroic gestures .
The Silverback’s intense breathing sound echoed . Freya lovingly stroke the
Silverback’s cheek as if he was on her side .
Letting the Monster out, perhaps a tiny mistake will cause Bell to die .
Freya suddenly thought about this possibility that she had never thought of before,
but, she continued to laugh .
If that boy was to die .
(Then I’ll follow him . )
No matter where, she would go seek the soul that was leaving the Lower World
and ascending to Heaven .
(I’ll hug him tightly)
Then letting that captured soul fall into her loving embrace .
Once she thought about this, Freya could not help but narrow her eyes and laugh
happily . Those pair of eyes that was filled with love and tenderness, at the same
time, it was filled with some sadistic colors .
The smile that remained on her face approached the Silverback’s face that her
hands were holding onto . The monster’s body trembled violently .
(So I said)
The next moment, Freya placed her lips on the Monster’s forehead .
(You have to wait for me okay?)
The Monster’s roar echoed through the entire space .
× × ×
“Kami-sama, what did you and Eina talk about?”
“Yes yes, it was just a casual chat . ”
In order to find Seal, Kami-sama and I walked around the surroundings of the
Coliseum again, then we once again appeared at the East Main Street . Because the
festival had already begun, most of the people had already entered the coliseum, so
the busy street earlier was completely different from the scene right now, it was
much more relaxed .
“Ah, Bell-kun . The person you are looking for is also a female?”
“Eh? Ah, yes . It is a female human with gray hair and eyes . She has a relatively tall
stature, which is about the same height as me……”
I had mistakenly thought that she was asking about the physical characteristics of
Seal, so I told the features to Kami-sama . Kami-sama seemed to have an
expression as if she did not care, and listened quietly . Then she used a reproachful
gaze to look at me .
Facing this kind of reprimanding gaze, I could not help but feel afraid .
“……What I talked about with the adviser just now, you really are a perfect
“Eh……W…What do you mean?”
Kami-sama turned her head to the side .
The twintails on both her head also followed, as if it was expressing her
dissatisfaction to me .
I do not know why Kami-sama suddenly became upset . I only know that if I was
anxious here, then I cannot do anything .
“……What is it, Bell-kun?”
I had stopped my footsteps, Kami-sama who had walked in front of me a few steps
also turned around, with a face filled with doubts .
I completely forgot about responding to Kami-sama, and seemed to be pulled
around and looked around .
Right now, that really was it .
What kind of sound rang in my ears .
It was different than the bustling sounds of the Festival, it was a sounds that felt
very urgent and sharp .
“……Is it the sounds of screaming?”
The moment I muttered this phrase to myself .
Immediately, a louder sound came out .
As if everything had froze, the peaceful and bustling street suddenly became
Then I saw it .
The path that led to the depths of the coliseum .
A stampeding sound that rang out from the stone roads, a Monster with pure white
hair, rush over in a threatening manner .
× × ×
The Monster, which is also the Silverback was also extremely excited .
It breathed hard and used all its muscles to move . Its long and silver hair fluttered
in the wind as if it was being controlled and continued to rush forward .
What it was looking for, it was a goddess .
What emerged in its mind was the figure of the shiny and silver hair fluttering in
the room disappearing . From its body and soul, the Silverback was completely
entranced, and it was being pushed forward by a feeling that it had never felt
before and a feeling that it could not restrain, as if there were invisible locks
causing it to chase after her figure .
To seek for her love!
To seek for the goddess to pamper it!
It was a completely different instinct that fueled the Monster to act .
It was completely different nature of the Monster, this was indeed the act for
seeking love .
In the center of the street, a carriage hit it and was immediately sent flying away .
The horse screamed constantly, and the unprepared driver also soared in the air and
hit the ground, and did a few cartwheels . The wheels of carriage, that was
completely flipped, was still rolling around in the air .
The important clue of the goddess was the residual aroma, which was already
becoming somewhat vague . Was it because of its excitement that it lost its ability
to judge and decided on a wrong path? Suddenly, the sweet fragrance had
completely disappeared .
The Silverback turned and looked around, then it stopped at a spot . Fu,fu . It tried
heard to sniff that smell while looking around .
There were many people here . Many of these people have gone completely limp,
some had used both hands to cover their mouth and their faces were extremely pale .
These people formed a huge circle surrounding the Silverback .
Afterwards, just when the Silverback was about to end the lives of the surrounding
The Silverback’s bloodshot eyes saw her figure .
Its expression was stunned and it was looked at this black-haired girl .
It was a completely different existence than the surrounding people .
That must be a existence that even towered over all living things .
It was basically a similar existence to the goddess it was pursuing .
It thought for a while .
“——Go chase after that tiny goddess okay?”
This was the last words she said to his ears .
——He saw it .
To the girl that widened its eyes, the Silverback took a big step forward .
× × ×
The moment it took a step forward .
Various screams echoed from the general crowd to escape .
I pulled Kami-sama’s hands, took a step, two steps, and immediately retreated
This creepy feeling spread through my entire body and it completely matched my
heart’s feeling as well .
The white burly body . The silver hair that went over the waist . That complete and
overwhelming existence .
That fellow’s eyes were senselessly looking at the direction of Kami-sama and I .
My breathing had almost stopped .
Why is there a Monster? What happened in the end? I still placed these ideas of
figuring what happened at the back of my head .
This feeling of my entire body sweating, I had experienced it several times before
——It was the same as the encounter with the Minotaur, a feeling of being totally
helpless dominated my entire body .
In the two sides, who would be the one that will be ravaged . I understood the
answer of this question instantly .
——Then, should I try?
This voice, I felt that I have heard it before .
