So, the refugees of the kingdom were on their way to the Madukas Empire, escorted by the empire’s soldiers.

“Um. . . . . . Your Highness. . . . . .”

“Hmm? What is it?”

One of the refugees asked Riara, who was riding a magical bike.

“Why were you, a princess, in the kingdom?”

It’s strange that a neighboring country’s princess was in the kingdom to begin with.

Moreover, it’s unsettling that she conveniently appeared just as the monsters attacked.

“How dare you disrespect the princess! She’s the one who saved your lives!”

“It’s alright, Keel. Their worries are justified. To those who don’t know the situation, we may indeed appear suspicious.”

The other refugees awkwardly avert their gazes.

Probably, others besides the questioner were also wondering.

“It’s all according to the wishes of Witch Marie-sama.”

“Um. . . . . . who is this Marie-sama?”

“I think you all know her well. She is Miss Marie-Von-Gordeau.”

“! The daughter of Duke Gordeau?!”

The refugees are buzzing.

Marie was infamous, but not in a good way.

She was supposed to be oppressed by everyone, including her family, for being defective, unable to use healing magic.

“It’s hard to believe. . . . . . that Marie-sama would help us.”

“Hmm. . . . . . But it was Marie-sama who dispatched me here. And she gave us our power as well.”

The imperial soldiers hold magical guns in their hands.

Magical beasts are a type of magical tool that can activate specific magic when magical power flows through them.

However, in this modern age, where the skill level of magic tool makers has declined, at most they can only input low-level magic.

“Marie-sama granted us these magical guns embedded with high-level magic.”

“! Why would she do that?”

“It’s obvious. To use these guns to save the people of the kingdom. That’s the message I interpreted!”

Hearing this, the refugees begin to shed tears.

“Marie-sama. . . . . . is so kind. . . . . .”

“Even after being exiled, she still cares for the future of the people in her former country. . . . . .”

“Despite us looking down on her. . . . . .”

The people of the kingdom feel ashamed of their actions.

Riara watches this and smiles.

“Lady Witch has a generous spirit. I’m sure she has already forgiven you all. If not, she wouldn’t have lent us her power and sent us here.”

“””Oh. . . . . .!”””

Riara speaks with confidence.

Hearing this, the people of the kingdom seem to be impressed.

. . . . . .However.

Keel knows the truth.

『Hey, Keel』

“! Ose-dono.”

On Keel’s right hand is a ring.

Stretching its surface, it transforms into a palm-sized kitten.

Ose is a demon of shadows.

This is like a shadowy doppelganger he created.

It doesn’t possess great power, but it can communicate with the main body.

『What’s the situation in the mortal realm?』

“Just as Louri-dono said.”

Louri is the Guardian of the Forbidden Library.

She had informed Marie and the others that a crisis was looming in the mortal realm, where Riara and the rest are currently located.

However, Marie did not intend to return to the lower world.

『That Miss Witch, she has zero motivation to fight unless she can eat her enemy. She just pushed the troublesome task onto the princess.』

Indeed. . . . . . On Marie’s orders, Riara and the others came to the mortal realm.

But Marie wasn’t acting to save the world or anything like that.

“Well. . . . . . But it’s a fact that Lady Witch lent us a magic tool.”

『She probably didn’t want anyone dying on her orders because it would make it hard for her to sleep. Plus, there were a fair number of good restaurants in the kingdom she didn’t want to lose.』

. . . . . .In short, she was as self-centered as ever.

Riara interprets Marie’s actions in an overly positive light and is spreading this view among others.

『Hey, leave this side to us. We’re counting on you for the rest.』

“Yes, I wish you good fortune in battle.”

『Getting well-wishes from a demon, huh. . . . . .』

With that, the black cat disappeared.

Keel felt grateful toward the kind-hearted demon.

The one who proposed lending the magic tool was none other than Ose.

Even though he should be a demon, Keel thought he was surprisingly kind-hearted.
