For now, I hand him a napkin, relieved that it’s over.

But the conversation didn’t end there.

After wiping his mouth, he dropped a shocking statement.

“However, even with my power, I couldn’t find that woman. Too much time has passed.”

Search magic becomes harder to track as time passes.

Furthermore, a week before and after the day she disappeared, the entire church was under a search interference magic, making it impossible to find any traces.

It was clear that the magic was intentionally cast, and the user was a considerably powerful individual.

If it was done one or two months ago, he could have dealt with it, but after nearly a year, there was nothing he could do.

It was concluded that the person behind it was likely someone from the church or the castle.

“If we can’t find her with search magic, there’s nothing we can do to help at the moment. That’s why I asked to be allowed to return to Demon King’s Castle until we start the search again, but I haven’t been allowed to leave… Sorry for coming back late.”

“It’s alright. I’m happy that you came back safely.”

As I said that, Tyran-san’s expression relaxed with relief.

Apparently, Tyran-san had been sent out to gather information from the apprentice saints for the past few days.

He seemed terribly exasperated by it, but he caught some valuable information there. 

Although they couldn’t pinpoint the exact date she disappeared, several apprentice saints testified that a few days before they were given time off, they saw “her” meeting with someone.

Even though she always wore a habit, she had makeup on that day.

When she left and when she returned, she looked happy, so she must have met her lover.

If that’s the case, her disappearance might not be a case of her running away, but rather, she went somewhere with her lover.

Considering the previous information, the opponent must be a considerably powerful individual. Tyran-san speculated that they took advantage of the feelings of the people around her and abducted her, knowing that the hero loved her.

“The more information comes out, the more the hero becomes agitated, and his companions find it difficult to stop him. He started saying that he would kill not only the princess but also the king and the demon king, who caused them to be separated for so many years.”

“Am I included in that?!”

“If she didn’t leave the village, that girl would have married me. That’s what the hero says, but it was the hero who took her for granted. If he had acted earlier, she would have been found. He’s just venting his anger.”

That’s exactly right.

If you only take the testimony you heard from the apprentice saints, it’s as if they were talking about me.

But the decisive difference is that he sent a letter to his “beloved woman” but he discarded me after calling me out. Even though the external movements seem similar, the situation is completely different.

The order is also strange. Normally, it would be the opposite.

If he had time, he should have gone to meet the woman he loved first.

Did he think that harm would come to her if he didn’t discard me early? 

If that’s the case, he should have discarded me before leaving for the demon king subjugation…

Was telling me to return to the village his intention to make it difficult for me to return?

I’ve been too preoccupied with unnecessary things and neglected what’s important.

Not only his true feelings, but I also wish he wouldn’t involve others. Perhaps I was just one of those “others.”

“I can’t let it escalate to the point of involving the demon king, so we have to identify the culprit who cast the search interference magic. Since there are limited individuals who can use such powerful magic, we will eventually get results. I was initially excluded as a suspect because I was in the Demon World at the time, and I was finally allowed to return temporarily.”

“Temporarily? Does that mean you’ll go back soon?”

“If she had run away of her own accord, I would have left her alone, but I can’t deny the possibility that she was taken away by someone with ill intentions. And if the country or the church is involved, I need to be present as a third party.”

“It’s tough being loved by the hero.”

“During the journey, if he had written letters or met her promptly after returning, we would have found her quickly. It’s his own fault.”

While scratching his head, Tyran-san mutters, “You kept me waiting, and now you ignore me after coming back.” 

If the person he was waiting for was someone like him, maybe I and the so-called “beloved” wouldn’t have ended up like this.

No, it’s a story of not getting involved with multiple people in the first place.
