“Vi-sama, something seems strange.”

As we approached his mother’s shop, Cid suddenly stopped in his tracks and whispered that.

During a time when many people should be coming and going, not a single person was walking in our direction. 

The windows of the houses were closed, and it was so quiet that I thought the people in this commercial area had gone somewhere. I couldn’t see any human figures, only occasionally birds and crows flapping their wings.

I had a bad feeling.

“Let’s hurry!”

Cid nodded silently at my words and we hurried towards our destination, which was nearby.

We turned the corner, passed by the famous statue of a scholar that I saw yesterday, and arrived in front of his mother’s shop. My bad feeling turned out to be correct.

“Ah!”

Onlookers looked worried as they watched from a distance. We pushed through them and rushed out in front of his mothers’s  shop.

There, we saw a black-haired woman, standing firm, glaring at the five cavalrymen in front of her with a resolute attitude.

In her right hand, she held a large cooking utensil made of wood that was taller than her. I couldn’t believe she intended to fight the knights with that, but Cid’s mother stood her ground with a fierce determination.

“I told you he hasn’t returned! It’s been years since we last met, so I don’t know you!! Besides, you’re the ones who took my son away, aren’t you!?”

“We know he is here. There’s no use hiding him.”

From their conversation, I immediately understood that they were looking for Cid. 

I gasped. If things continued like this, Okaa-san would be in great danger. . .But Cid’s Okaa-san was strong.

“Where could we hide him in this small house?

Or is it something else? Do you all want my treatment? Do you know that excessive healing magic can crush bones and rot organs?”

Scary! The counterattack of the former saint was terrifying!!

The cavalrymen grimaced, clearly showing their fear.

As expected of Cid’s Okaa-san, her methods were ruthless.

However, five against one was not in her favor.

Before I could do anything, Cid jumped out in front of the soldiers.

“Mother!”

All eyes were on Cid.

With black hair and red eyes, his appearance in the midst of the turmoil instantly changed the tense atmosphere.

“Why. . .!”

Okaa-san, who had maintained a resolute attitude, widened her eyes in astonishment.

Cid glared at the man who seemed to be the leader and gathered magic power in his right hand.

“What do you want? I’m right here.”

“Cid!”

I quickly followed him and held the hem of his robe.

“It’s okay. I won’t suddenly incinerate anyone.”

No, I couldn’t feel reassured. His eyes looked deranged.

Just like during the three-day endurance training I went through with my brother in hell, he has a devilish look on his face.

“Hahaha, Vi-sama, are you lonely? Please wait a moment~ I’ll take care of the pests while we reunite.”

He’s already calling them pests.

This is bad. If he causes too much havoc, his mother won’t be able to stay here anymore! And others will be affected too. . .!

While I became pale and the blood drained from my face, Cid’s eyes sparkled and he released red flames from his right hand.

“Alright, if you don’t run away within ten seconds, you’ll be caught in a natural fire!”

“””Screams!”””

The onlookers all fled at once.

He won’t burn you guys, you know?! Even if I thought that, it was already too late.

On top of that, I expected his mother to stop him, but instead, she placed her hand on her cheek and gave advice with a troubled expression.

“No, Cid. If it’s a natural phenomenon, it should be a higher temperature blue flame. The cleanliness of the finish is important, you know?”

What kind of reasoning is that?! It’s clearly impossible for it to be a natural phenomenon!

I could see a man who seemed to be her husband peering at us sneakily from inside the house, and a boy around five years old being carried in his arms, both of them gaping in surprise.

Yeah, it’s surprising!

Even though I’m always with Cid, this situation is still surprising!

The cavalrymen trembled in fear. Horses went wild, and some riders were thrown off.

However, from behind, new soldiers appeared.

“That’s enough for now. You probably don’t want to have a battle here either, right?”

A man who seemed to be of high status, accompanied by five cavalrymen, approached with a composed expression.

He had light brown hair, green eyes, and a handsome face with a sturdy physique.

He was surrounded by knights, dressed in splendid clothes, and his expression oozed arrogance and confidence.

“Long time no see, or can I say that? I’m glad you’re still alive.”

His eyes, looking down at Cid from atop his horse, were very cold. His tone also felt clearly condescending. 

Cid shielded me with his back,shielding me from his gaze. A tense atmosphere filled the air.

“Oh my, won’t you even greet me?”

He had a faint smile on his face.

Oh well, he exaggeratedly placed his right hand on his forehead.

“I came all the way here, and my little brother is so cold.”

“Tch.”

Wait, did Cid just click his tongue?

Everyone had a surprised expression on their faces.

“. . .What business do you have coming all the way here, King Henry?”
