I was summoned to the icy land of Kai・Pagos.

The one who called me was Decker-chan, the daughter of the giant clan.

Originally a large figure, Decker-chan had shrunk to human size, thanks to divine blessing.

. . . . . .Since she was naked, she tore the cloth she had been wearing and wrapped it around her chest and waist.

Through a fierce snowstorm, we pressed on.

“Um. . . . . .! Decker-chan! Where are we going? Isn’t it to Gankoji’s place?”

Conversing amid the ice-cold wind that blows violently, we continue.

“Gankoji is holed up in the magic silver cave!”

“Magic silver. . . . . .”

I heard it is a very valuable mineral.

But. . . . . .

“Why in the cave?”

“Gankoji is a craftsman!”

A craftsman. . . . . .I see.

So that’s why he’s holed up in the mine where the magic silver is. . . . . .maybe.

But Decker-chan is advancing at an incredible speed.

She doesn’t seem to mind this snowstorm.

Truly a giant. . . . . .or should I say, even though she became human-sized, she’s so powerful.

Before long, we arrived at the entrance to the cave.

“Hyah! We got here in no time!”

“Really?”

“Yeah! This snowstorm, you know? It’s tough to walk outside. Maybe it’s because Angel-sama is here.”

“Me. . . . . .? I’m not an angel.”

“Yeah. Walking with Angel-sama makes me feel energized. And the snowstorm’s force seems to be dampened.”

. . . . . .Uh, the force is reduced in this challenging snowstorm where even talking is difficult. . . . . .?

Is it usually worse?

“Angel-sama is a great person! I’m sure Gankoji will feel better too!”

Well, I guess she can call me whatever she likes.

She won’t fix it even if I say so.

After that, Decker-chan and I continue into the cave.

For a magic silver cave, it’s just a regular cave.

The ground is also dirt.

“Magic silver is found deeper inside.”

“Oh. . . . . .Mr. Gankoji, is he also a giant like you?”

“No, Gankoji is a mountain dwarf.”

“Mountain dwarf. . . . . .?”

They were in the royal capital too.

Short, bearded, skilled people. . . . . .

“Gankoji is skilled with his hands, unapproachable but really kind♡ Hee hee hee♡.”

Oh. . . . . .oh oh.

My girl’s sensor is tingling.

“Perhaps a lover. . . . . .?”

“Lo, lo, lover, no way, no way. I, I just like him unilaterally.”

“Oh my~.”

I smell young love.

Fufufu.

“Why don’t you confess?”

“. . . . . .”

“Decker-chan?”

Her happy atmosphere instantly changes, and she says with a downcast expression.

“. . . . . .It’s impossible.”

“Oh, why?”

“Because. . . . . .I’m a giant, and Gankoji is a mountain dwarf.”

“?”

What’s the problem with that?

Decker-chan explains to me, who tilts my head.

“Kai・Pagos is now divided into two forces, fighting. Between the mountain dwarves and the giant clan.”

“Oh. . . . . .internal strife?”

In other words, they can’t be together because they are from opposing factions.

That’s what it means.

“How sad. . . . . .”

“It’s fine! I don’t care if we can’t be together. . . . . .If I can be by Gankoji’s side, that’s enough.”

I doubt that’s entirely true.

After all, Decker-chan looks very downcast.

She must want to be with Mr. Gankoji.

But, due to the state of the country, they can’t be together. . . . . .

“It’s tough. I want to help you somehow.”

“I don’t deserve so much from Angel-sama! If you cure Gankoji’s illness, that’s. . . . . .enough.”

Despite saying it was enough, her expression was gloomy.

I wish something could be done.

Or rather, I wonder why they’re fighting in the first place.

Even though they live in the same country. . . . . .

“This is it. Gankoji’s workshop.”

“. . . . . .? There’s nothing here.”

We came to a dead end in the cave.

Though it’s called a workshop, there’s nothing that looks like one anywhere.

Then Decker-chan touches the wall of the maze.

She was sucked in with a slurp!

“Peewee~! It disappeared!”

A surprised Guu-chan.

Decker-chan peeks her face out of the wall.

“It’s a hidden door. Gankoji made it!”

“Oh. . . . . .the plain-looking wall is an entrance. What an incredible technique. . . . . .”

“That’s right! Gankoji was supposed to become the world’s greatest craftsman.”

Decker-chan speaks with hesitation.

I wonder what’s wrong. . . . . .

No, I’ll understand once I meet him.

I bravely enter the wall.

. . . . . .There, it was like an amazing forge, filled with a lot of tools.

Clang, clang, clang. . . . . .! The sound of hammering something hard.

“Gankoji! You mustn’t stay awake!”

With a pale face, Decker-chan runs to the back.

If this noise is being made by Mr. Gankoji, it’s strange.

Because he said he was sick. . . . . .

Anyway, I follow Decker-chan.

Clang, clang, clang, clang. . . . . .!

In front of a large furnace, there was a young mountain dwarf hammering.

Is that Mr. Gankoji?

But. . . . . .

“His arm. . . . . .his leg. . . . . .”

His right arm, and right leg, were extremely thin.

In contrast, the hand holding the hammer was thick like a tree trunk.

Despite the healthy appearance of black hair and dark skin, his right half looked somewhat frail.

“Cough. . . . . .! Cough, cough!”

“Stop it! Gankoji! You’ll die!”

Decker-chan takes away the raised hammer.

“Cough. . . . . .! Who, who are you. . . . . .!”

“It’s me! Gankoji!”

“Me. . . . . .? You. . . . . .could it be. . . . . .peach-colored hair. . . . . .?!”

It seems Mr. Gankoji didn’t recognize Decker-chan because of her changed appearance.

“Ugh. . . . . .Grrr. . . . . .!”

“Gankoji! Angel-sama! Please help him!”

I nod and rush to him.

I headed towards him, who collapsed coughing up blood.

. . . . . .How old is he?

He doesn’t have a beard, so I think he’s young.

But there are shadows under his eyes, and he breathes heavily as if struggling.

To be holding a hammer in this condition. . . . . .

He must take great pride in his work as a blacksmith.

“I. . . . . .I don’t. . . . . .want to die yet. . . . . .I haven’t. . . . . .completed the divine weapon. . . . . .cough, cough!”

It seems he has some sort of goal.

. . . . . .God, please hear this child’s wish, and the wish of the girl who thinks of him. . . . . .

When I close my eyes and pray. . . . . .

“Angel-sama’s wings! They’re glowing so brightly!”

“So bright!”

. . . . . .Eventually, when I open my eyes, the young mountain dwarf, Mr. Gankoji, sits up.

“I can’t believe it. . . . . .My body feels so light. . . . . .”

“Gankoji!!!!”

Wham! Decker-chan hugs him tightly.

Squeeze!

“Cough! Hey, stop! I’ll die!”

“Oh, so, sorry. . . . . .”

Mr. Gankoji takes a deep breath and looks at me.

He bows his head deeply.

“Thank you, miss. The pain’s gone.”

“Thank you! Angel. . . . . .no, Goddess-sama!”

I’ve been promoted from angel to goddess. . . . . .Well, it’s fine.

Anyway, I’m glad Mr. Gankoji is cured.

Thank you, God.
