《Anila Side》

The 13th Apostle launched an attack on the forest where the saint resides.

The enemy appears to have divided Anila and her companions into three groups, aiming to defeat them individually.

Anila had been forcibly transported beyond the forest using Three’s ability of Forced Transfer.

Anila glared at Three with a piercing gaze.

At first glance, the opponent appears to be a burly man, resembling a bear in size and rough appearance.

However, Anila senses the immense magical power contained within Three.

“You. . . . . .are a guardian, aren’t you? A subordinate of a Demon King.”

Three mutters in what seems to be admiration, “Hmm. . . . . .”

“As expected of a Demon King species, you have keen eyes.”

A certain kind of respect for Anila can be sensed from Three.

He seems to understand both the difference in their abilities and their respective positions.

“As you guessed, I am a guardian of Ouma-sama.”

“Guardian, huh? What’s your rank?”

“It is ‘Rook Class.'”

“Hmm. . . . . .a mere small fry then.”

“Indeed, you are correct.”

At that moment. . . . . .

“. . . . . .Anila.”

“What is it, Medusa? Are you done already? That was fast.”

Medusa had teleported to Anila’s location using Nana’s transfer ability.

“Hmm. . . . . .” Three mutters.

“Was Nana taken down? Well, it’s not surprising considering she failed to recognize that you are of the Demon King species.”

“. . . . . .Should we fight him?”

Medusa heightens her vigilance against Three.

Unlike Nana, Three seems to have seen through Medusa’s power.

“That’s right, Medusa.”

“. . . . . .Don’t call me that. Only Kyrie.”

“Ah, I see. Well, snake lady, you guessed right. This old man is a guardian of the Demon King.”

“. . . . . .Guardian of the Demon King?”

At the unfamiliar term, Medusa tilts her head.

She’s also of the Demon King species, but likely never had anyone to enlighten her this.

Just as Anila tries to explain to her junior, Three interjects.

“A guardian is someone who has formed a contract with a demon race, receiving both power supply and a ‘King Sword.'”

“Contract?. . . . . .King Sword?”

Confused by the new terms, Medusa looks bewildered.

Anila, on the other hand, finds Three’s excessive composure unsettling.

“What’s your aim? Why provide information to the enemy?”

“No particular reason. You just seemed curious, so I told you.”

“I see. . . . . .”

If Anila could, she would prefer not to fight.

After all, her beloved is an extreme pacifist.

Moreover. . . . . .she had once gone on a rampage and failed.

Confined for reflection by Ellison, she had lost her dearest person.

Violence begets sad outcomes. Therefore, Anila hesitates to hurt others with her own hands.

“Returning to the explanation. . . . . .a guardian is essentially an advanced form of a name holder monster.”

A name holder monster is one named by a Demon King.

They receive tremendous magical power, and most evolve as a result.

“In the case of name holders, it’s just a temporary supply of magical power. On the other hand, a contract is formed between the guardian and the Demon King species. A magical route is established, allowing a constant flow of power from the Demon King.”

Those who possess temporary power enhancement are referred to as “Name Holders” among the monsters.

For those with constant empowerment, they are known as “Guardian” monsters.

“Guardians have rankings. From the bottom up, they are Pawn, Rook, Bishop, Knight, Queen. All name holders are treated as Pawns.”

In other words, Pawns are name holders.

Those ranked Rook and above are classified as Guardians.

“Do you understand?”

“. . . . . .Not at all. It’s all irrelevant information, and it’s annoying.”

Medusa was angry from the start.

“. . . . . .Anyone who enters Kyrie’s territory will be killed.”

“Wait a minute, Medusa.”

Anila grabs Medusa’s shoulder.

Right after that,

Zoom. . . . . .!

Just in front of Medusa’s eyes and nose, a massive crater appeared.

“. . . . . .”

Medusa was surprised by the sudden attack.

And also by its power.

“You’ve only recently awakened as the Demon King. No matter how much you surpass the Guardians in specs, when it comes to utilizing power, the opponent has the upper hand.”

In Three’s hand, a dagger is gripped.

“So, you can freely use the King Sword?”

“To some extent.”

“I see. Well then. . . . . .I’ll be your opponent.”

Snap, snap, Anila steps forward, snapping her fingers.

“It’s an honor to have a Demon King as an opponent.”

“Don’t misunderstand. This is just a game. I’ll go easy on you, because this isn’t a fight to the death.”

Anila remains in her human form, meaning she is in a state of power preservation.

The clash between the Demon King and a Demon King’s Guardian was about to unfold.
