I, Kyrie, serve as a saint in the Celestial Guidance Church.

Due to my colleague, Saint Haslea, and Prince Momok-sama, who was seduced by her, I was exiled from the kingdom.

I fell into their trap and was left in a vast forest where beasts roamed.

When I shared food with a bear and its cub, I discovered that they were actually monsters.

『Whew. . . . . .What a surprise. Never thought a human would understand our monster language.』

The mother bear looks at me intently.

The bear cub, while held in my arms, was happily munching on dried meat.

But this child. . . . . .is absolutely lovely.

『Lovely? What’s that?』

. . . . . .It seems my thoughts are going straight to the monster.

Could it be telepathy?

Being so transparent is, well, a bit embarrassing.

After all, this little bear. . . . . .is so very cute!

『Cute? Me, cute?』

Yes, very much so!

『Really? Hehehe~! OBig Sister, you’re very cute too!』

What a precocious little bear.

Fufufu, fluffy and adorable, it’s the best.

『. . . . . .But still, I can’t believe there’s a human who isn’t afraid of Red Bears.』

Red Bear, is that your name?

『No, no, wrong. It’s the name of our species.』

I see.

But what I wanted to know are your names, you and this child.

『. . . . . .We don’t have names.』

Is that so?

『Yeah. Low-ranked monsters don’t have individual names. Strong monsters are different though.』

That’s, well. . . . . .Isn’t it inconvenient when calling out?

Oh, I know.

Shall I name you?

『Really?』

Yes. It’s easier to call you if you have a name, right?

So. . . . . .This child is Kumakichi-chan!

『Kumakichi! My name? Yay! I’ve become a 【name holder】!』

Name holder?

I don’t understand, but just naming them makes them happy, and that makes me happy too.

Let’s see, Okaa-san. . . . . .How about Mrs. Kumako?

『Ahaha! Thank you. And you, miss?』

My name?

Kyrie.

『Kyrie. . . . . .Humans have last names too, right?』

You mean surname?

If so, Kyrie・Inori.

『Inori. . . . . .? Are you, Inori?』

Yes, Inori is my family name.

Why?

『. . . . . .That person was also Inori. . . . . .No, but. Must be a coincidence.』

That person?

Who could it be. . . . . .? Just then.

『Mo, Mom!』

Before my eyes, an enormous red bear appeared.

Eh, another bear. . . . . .?

Perhaps, Mrs. Kumako’s husband?

『What are you saying, Big Sister! It’s me! Kumakichi!!!』

. . . . . .What?

Kumakichi-kun?

No, but Kumakichi-kun had a cute, stuffed-animal-like form. . . . . .

Now he looks like an adult bear.

『Uhuhuhooi! Mom, look at me! I’ve grown so big!』

Do monsters grow this fast. . . . . .?

Meanwhile, Mrs. Kumako stares at her son in astonishment.

『I, I can’t believe it! Existence evolution! He’s evolved into a 【name-holding monster】!!!』

Existence evolution?

Name-holding monster. . . . . .?

『I knew it. . . . . .You are the descendant of that person!』

Who is that person. . . . . .?

As I think, Mrs. Kumako’s body starts to grow as well.

Her arms equipped with hard-looking gauntlets, she transformed into a big bear with red fur.

Is this. . . . . .evolution?

What’s this. . . . . .

What’s this. . . . . .

『What’s happening, Mom? Kyrie-oneechan, are you trembling?』

『We must have grown too big, she’s probably scared.』

『I wish we were smaller! I don’t want Big Sister to be scared of us.』

What a wonderful, fluffy thing!

『『Huh?』』

I hug Kumakichi-kun and feel the fluffiness on my stomach.

Ah, what a wonderful fluffiness it is.

You won’t find such beautiful fur very often!

『I don’t know why, but Big Sister doesn’t seem scared?』

『Yeah, it seems like she likes fur.』

Ah, such marvelous fluffiness.

I want to keep hugging and feeling this fluffiness forever. . . . . .

『You’re a strange kid, not fearing monsters and showing compassion.』

Is that so?

Well, while I wouldn’t understand a beast that can’t talk, Mrs. Kumako and Mr. Kumakichi can speak like this.

There’s no need to fear someone you can communicate with, right?

『Fufu, what an unusual person you are. . . . . .the Holy Demon King』

. . . . . .Yes?

Holy, Demon King?

What’s that?

『Oops. Kyrie-sama』

You don’t have to call me “sama.”

Just call me by my name.

『Then, Kyrie. There’s someone I want you to meet.』

You want me to meet someone?

『It’s the leader of the forest where we live.』
