My name is Kyri・Inori.

I was a saint belonging to the Celestial Guidance Church.

But one day, I suddenly received a banishment from the crown prince.

After that, by the crown prince’s scheme, I was thrown into a dangerous area called the Abyss Forest.

But there, I learned that the monsters I met were not as bad as people say.

I met many monsters, and as a result of meeting the former forest leader, Ellison-sama, I became the new forest leader, the Holy Demon King.

After that, with some ups and downs, I saved the royal capital and returned to the Abyss Forest with my friends. . . . . .

🔸

A little over two weeks had passed since the turmoil in the royal capital when something happened one day.

I suddenly woke up.

『Ngaa』『Peeweei』『Slah』

Next to me is a fluffy sensation. On my chest, a warmth like a luxurious down comforter. And at my neck, I feel a softness like pudding.

“Oh. . . . . .I slept well.”

When I sit up, I see that there are 3 monsters around me.

『Shichu. . . . . .umee. . . . . .munyamunya. . . . . .』

This slightly small bear is Kumakichi-kun. 

The son of a bear monster I first met when I came to this forest.

『Pyuu~. . . . . .pyurii~. . . . . .pyuu~. . . . . .』

A small, round bird. . . . . .like a monster.

This is Guu-chan, the baby griffon.

One of the Holy Zodiac, Mrs. Syndulla’s son.

The Holy Zodiac are 12 powerful monsters named by the first Holy Demon King Ellison-sama.

『Mnyaa-suraa』

And finally, Sura-chan, the slime. A gluttonous baby slime that can eat anything.

I’m usually with these guys.

These little ones are more clingy to me than other monsters.

Maybe because they’re little kids?

I don’t mind it. I think they’re cute. I’m not scared at all.

I sleep with them almost every day.

“Well. . . . . .I must do my morning prayers.”

I change into my clothes and leave the room.

I walk alone through the old church.

This is a small church that Ellison-sama used.

There are several rooms, and I can tell that Ellison-sama lived here as well.

I head to the chapel.

There is a statue of the God Noir.

The God I believe in, Noir-sama.

I hear He is compassionate and wise.

When God Noir descended to the earth, He solved everything with His great magic.

As a result, a paradise on earth was created where there was no hunger or sickness. . . . . .

Ah, wonderful.

God Noir is amazing.

Oh, right. Prayer.

“Noir-sama. Please watch over us for a peaceful day.”

And at that moment, as I was praying. 

A strong force flows into my body.

I know this sensation.

“God Noir, is there someone seeking divine salvation somewhere?”

God always watches over us on earth.

But God is basically in heaven and rarely descends to earth (or almost never does).

There, a being is needed to listen to God’s will and settle the troubles on Earth.

That’s the saint. In other words, me.

I have received a revelation from the God Noir.

Save the weak who seek God, He says.

“Where is this. . . . . .?”

When I open my eyes, I’m in a forest.

Probably in the Abyss Forest.

And nearby, a river flows.

On a large rock, someone was leaning.

“A person. . . . . .? No, it’s different. Is that. . . . . .a horn?”

A person clad in something like armor was leaning against the rock.

But from his forehead, a magnificent horn was protruding.

“! He’s injured! Terrible!”

The person with the horn had lost one arm and one leg.

With the remaining arm, he was holding something dearly.

“Hey! Are you okay?!”

I shake that person’s shoulder.

A beautiful person with red hair. . . . . .a person? No, it’s different.

It looks human, but a horn grows from its head.

Also, the skin is slightly copper-colored, so I knew it’s not human.

So what?

I can’t ignore anyone who’s injured, no matter who they are.

I received great power from God.

This power is to save all lives living on Earth.

I am convinced that it is given to me by God Noir for that purpose.

So whether this child is human or not, it doesn’t matter.

“God, please save this person.”

I close my eyes and pray hard.

That prayer was immediately answered.

I feel a wave of strong power.

Eventually, when I open my eyes. . . . . .

“Ugh. . . . . .”

“Are you okay?”

“. . . . . .Ah, I am indebted.”

The missing parts are restored, and the injuries are completely healed.

Then I realized that this child is quite handsome.

Sharp eyes, beautiful skin.

A sharp fang protruding from the mouth.

“! Right! My sister! Please help my sister! She’s in worse condition than me!”

He thrusts the bundle he was holding dearly towards me.

But. . . . . .

“Haa. . . . . .big sister?”

“! She’s alive?! She’s alive, isn’t she?!”

Big sister. . . . . .So this person is a girl?

She looks like a cool boy.

“Yes. But, that’s strange? My chest doesn’t hurt at all!”

“Really?!”

“Yes! I’m not even coughing!”

In the bundle is a small child who still looks like a baby.

That child also had a horn growing from its forehead.

“I’m glad. . . . . .! Oh, I’m glad. . . . . .!”

“Big sister?”

The child hugs her sister tightly.

But soon. . . . . .the elder sister fainted.

“! Are you okay?!”

Goooooo~~~~~~~~~~~~. . . . . .

A loud sound of a growling stomach.

Probably. . . . . .She was hungry.

Was she washed away in the river?

She ended up here, exhausted. . . . . .like this.

『Big Sister!』

Thump thump thump! Kumakichi-kun came running towards me.

On his head were Guu-chan and Sura-chan.

『Come on! Big Sister disappears all the time. If you’re going out, you have to tell me, or mom will kill me!』

Kumakichi-kun is angry, pouting.

I’m sorry.

“I’m sorry. But, I heard a voice calling for help.”

『Hmm. . . . . .Is that so?』

He points to the fallen big sister with his nose.

“Yes. Kumakichi-kun, put her on your back.”

『Well, if Big Sister Kyrie says so. . . . . .but this guy’s an Oni, you know?』

A Oni. . . . . .?

“What do you mean, Oni?”

『The Tree King said so. It’s scary, a man-eating monster.』

Man-eating. . . . . .?

She didn’t look like a bad child.

She was crying and happy that her sister was saved. . . . . .?

“Big Sister’s not a man-eater! She’s kind!”

Wrapped in a blanket, the little sister Oni says angrily.

I pick up the little sister and smile at her.

“That’s right. She didn’t look like a bad person. . . . . .no, a bad Oni.”

“Right! Just like OBig Sister says!”

I believe there are no bad people among those who care for their family.

Whether it’s a monster or a human, it doesn’t matter.

『Hmm. . . . . .If Big Sister Kyrie says so, I’ll believe it.』

Kumakichi-kun grabs the elder sister Oni’s collar in his mouth, and puts her on his back.

I walk next to them, together.

『What will we do now?』

“We’ll take these kids home. First, we’ll have a meal.”

『Will big brother Chatura and mom forgive us?』

People might be concerned because Onis are thought to eat humans.

But it’ll be okay.

“They’ll understand if we explain.”

『Really? . . . . . .Well, if Big Sister Kyrie says so, it’ll be okay!』

And thus, I met the Oni sisters.
