《Kumako Side》

The Rotten Princess attacked Abyss Forest.

That night.

The Holy Zodiac gathered in front of the Tree King.

“So, why did I have to be involved. . . . . .?”

Chatura, Syndulla, Anila.

They are high-ranking monsters, given power and names by the first Holy Demon King Ellison.

On the other hand, Kumako is merely a Red Bear.

Compared to these members, a monster that is one rank lower. . . . . .however.

『No, Kyrie gave you a name, and you were the first monster. Therefore, you possess greater power than other monsters, don’t you?』

“Huh. . . . . .is that so?”

『Yes, becoming human is proof. Simply becoming human makes you on par with Chatura and the others, you know.』

“Hmm. . . . . .”

Apparently, I am a special being.

Although I’m not really aware of it.

Kumako, being a leader, asks Chatura.

“So, what’s this gathering for?”

“We’re going to discuss our strategy.”

“Strategy?”

“Yes. . . . . .it’s a meeting to plan our approach to the other demon kings!”

Other demon kings. . . . . .?

Then Syndulla, who is in charge of air security, shares information.

“The other day, in the sky over our demon kingdom, Kyrienostia. . . . . .”

“Wait, what’s this about the demon kingdom. . . . . .Kyrienostia?”

“It’s the name of the kingdom where we, the monsters, live, with Kyrie-sama at the top.”

“I never heard anything about that. . . . . .”

No, Kumako remembers.

Come to think of it, when the capital was overrun by zombies, Chatura had declared something like that. . . . . .

“But that doesn’t mean Kyrie approved it, right?”

“No! Kyrie-sama said to create a kingdom where we all can live together peacefully!”

“Did she really say that. . . . . .?”

She didn’t say that.

But she always says let’s get along.

. . . . . .In other words.

“You. . . . . .are you just running wild on your own, Chatura?”

“How rude! I understand Kyrie-sama better than anyone else. . . . . .!”

“Is that so. . . . . .? So, what now?”

Syndulla talks about what happened the other day.

“I see. . . . . .so other demon kings are provoking Kyrie?”

“Yes, defying Kyrie-sama deserves a thousand deaths! We must retaliate!”

“Even so, it’s Kyrie, right? It’s hard to think she’d condone violence.”

Hmm. . . . . .even the ruffian Anila agrees with Kumako’s words.

“Besides, is it really okay to decide this without Kyrie’s opinion?”

“But. . . . . .the burden on Kyrie-sama.”

“Wouldn’t she dislike us running wild and hurting the citizens?”

Hmm. . . . . .Chatura falls silent.

“But, you know, if we don’t attack, they’ll come back again, those kinds of guys.”

“Well. . . . . .that might be true.”

Anila’s words make sense.

After all, this world is survival of the fittest.

No matter how much Kyrie promotes peace, the strong will always prey on the weak.

Kumako, as a monster living in the wild, understands this aspect.

“We can’t just defend. The enemy seems to have targeted us.”

“That’s right! For Kyrie-sama’s sake, we’ll attack!”

“But do we have a target?”

When asked by Chatura, Syndulla nods and answers.

“We, the people of the sky, are currently locating the enemy.”

“Well then. . . . . .Once we understand, first grasp the enemy’s numbers. Prepare our forces, and if victory seems feasible, launch an attack. If it appears unpromising, seek counsel from Kyrie. That seems to be the plan.”

“””Yes!””

. . . . . .Kumako tilts his head inwardly.

Fenrir, Griffin, and an Ancient Dragon of Demon King species.

Among such distinguished members, why is a mere bear monster. . . . . .taking charge?

『Indeed, calling upon you was the right choice. The narrow vision of that mutt there tends to become a hindrance.』

“This kind of thing really doesn’t suit me though. . . . . .”

That’s when it happened.

A bird monster screeched in the skies above Syndulla.

Syndulla’s face turned grim, and she informed everyone.

“Kyrie-sama has disappeared!”

“””What?!?”””

Then. . . . . .thump thump thump! Something was approaching.

『Mom, Mom, it’s terrible!』

“Kumakichi!”

The children of the monster, always with Kyrie, came to the meeting.

“What happened?”

『Big Sister Kyrie disappeared! Just like always!』

“Again? That kid, seriously!”

Although Kyrie seems demure at first glance, she often wanders off on her own.

“Do you know where she went?”

『Nope, just like always, she vanished with a flash.』

“Ah, seriously! Is that child a toddler or what!”

To Kumako, who has raised a child, Kyrie’s wandering off seems like the behavior of a baby.

“What should we do, Chatura?”

“Ahhhh. . . . . .Kyrie-sama. . . . . .ahhhh.”

“As soon as she’s gone, this happens. . . . . .”

The leader of the Holy Zodiac listened in disbelief.

『What will you do, Kumako?』

Staring intently, the gaze of the Holy Zodiac, including the monsters, gathered on Kumako.

Why leave the decision to just a bear?

Well, it’s a problem for Kumako too if Kyrie is gone.

“Syndulla, order the sky folks. Search for Kyrie with all your might.”

“Understood!”

Transforming into a griffin, Syndulla flew away.

“Anila. You can fly too, right? Join the search party.”

“Why should I follow someone else’s orders. . . . . .”

“You wouldn’t want Kyrie to be gone, would you?”

“Tch!”

Transforming into a dragon, she flew away.

“The rest of you, stand by. Monsters, don’t wander outside too much. Those without escape means should stay put.”

“Ahhhh. . . . . .”

“Chatura, can’t you follow Kyrie’s lingering scent to find her?”

“Ahhhh. . . . . .”

“Useless dog!”

“Yelp!”

Kumako kicked Chatura’s rear.

“Go search quickly!”

“Y, Yes. . . . . .!”

Chatura transformed into Fenrir and dashed out.

Left behind, Kumako sighed heavily.

“Searching every time she disappears is such a hassle. . . . . .”

『Should we put some magical tool on her?』

“A magical tool?”

『Yes. Special tools made by humans. They have various powers.』

“But who can make that?”

『Dwarves in a distant land could.』

The Tree King explained.

The Geta・Niega Kingdom, possessing Abyss Forest.

Far southeast from there, the land of the dwarves, always covered in ice, exists.

The dwarves are skilled with their hands, creating magical tools effortlessly.

“I’d like to ask, but we have no connections there.”

『Yes. . . . . .the dwarves are stubborn and don’t trust others easily. They wouldn’t listen to a request from a monster.』

“If only we had a way. . . . . .”

『Yes. . . . . .』

Several hours later.

Syndulla returned with a panicked look.

“It’s terrible!”

“What happened, did you find Kyrie’s whereabouts?”

“Yes! I mobilized the sky people, and we found out! Kyrie-sama is. . . . . .overseas now!”

“Ov, overseas, you say. . . . . .?!”

Syndulla said with a grave expression.

“Her destination is the Dwarf country, Kai・Pagos! Kyrie-sama has gone alone to the land of ice and snow, to the country of the Dwarves!”
