The Saint Whose Engagement Was Broken Runs a Cafeteria, Where the Beloved Demon King and Ninja Visit Today – Chapter 6

Chapter 6: Goodbye, Demon King-sama

After the farewell okonomiyaki dinner.

Demon King-sama sent me near the walls of the capital. Even though Black Dragon-san’s concealment magic power sent us to the walls of the capital, no one noticed us.

“. . .Really, not coming back.”

We were facing each other in a space closed by concealment magic.

“It’s a shame.”

Demon King-sama’s black clothes fluttered in the wind as he lowered his gaze to his feet. It was an unfortunate but inevitable reality.

“. . .How about joining the conquest of the Demon King’s castle?”

“Even if you say that. . .”

It was an interesting proposal, but I shrugged my shoulders.

“I’m neither a nobleman nor an heiress with inheritance rights, so it’s not possible. Besides, even if someone invites me to a party, I don’t want to go for a while.”

“. . .That’s a shame.”

I couldn’t help but smile at Demon King-sama’s obvious disappointment.

“And if I attack, I’ll blow away Demon King-sama’s clothes. You saw it, the explosion earlier.”

“Yeah, it was amazing.”

“Right? I don’t want to turn Demon King-sama’s beautiful hair into an afro.”

Demon King-sama smiled slightly at my joke.

“So, where will Hiira go from now on?” 

“I don’t have a home to go back to, so I plan to enter a monastery and engage in volunteer work as originally planned. . .But I lost my qualification to enter the monastery as a formal saint, so I guess I’ll be a non-regular one. Ahaha.”

“Qualification, huh. . .”

Was it just my imagination that Demon King-sama looked very distressed?

Suddenly, flames appeared in Demon King-sama’s hand.

“Since we’re here, let’s burn Kasdar’s family home on the way back.”

“Yeah, I wanna burn it too~.”

Fire came out of Black Dragon-san’s mouth. Wait, wait.

“I-It’s okay. I’ll just forget about that guy. It’s not something that should make Demon King-sama and Black Dragon-san angry.”

“Yeah. It’s better to gradually decline than to lose everything at once.”

It feels like they’re saying something very scary.

Although I was sweating inside, I decided to ask a fundamental question.

“Demon King-sama. Why are you so angry with Kasdar? It’s not like it has anything to do with Demon King-sama.”

“Because he hurt you.”

Straightforward words and a straight gaze.

Demon King-sama, who was looking at me with bated breath, had a very serious expression.

“What other reason do I need? For decades, no party has reached my throne in that forest. One day, when I was tired of sitting in that forest as a demon king, you came with Kasdar.” 

It’s not like I brought them here.

Without even making such a retort, Demon King-sama continues his words seriously.

“Hiira-dono. . .I have been able to continue being the Demon King because I enjoyed meeting you. . .for these past few years. It was very enjoyable.”

“Demon King-sama.”

“That’s why I. . .”

Demon King-sama was about to say somethingーーbut he bites his lip and shakes his head.

“. . .No, it’s nothing.”

Then he smiles at me again.

“Be careful not to overuse your saint abilities. Overusing them will destroy you. . .I’ll be watching over you from the shadows.”

With a strong gust of wind, Demon King-sama rides on Black Dragon-san and leaves.

“Demon King-sama. . .”

I watched him until his figure disappeared into the sky.

As I watched, I thought.

“What’s next?”

I will continue to serve in a church far from the Demon King’s castle and the capital. If I were a regular saint, I might have been able to plan the work I wanted to do, but I know how non-regular saints are treated. However, after being forced into an engagement and then returning to secular life, losing my qualifications as a saint, I can never become a regular saint.

“What I wanted to do. . .”

Using my saint abilities to cook delicious food and help everyone. 

I want to increase the number of people who can eat their fill, become healthy, and spend their time with a smile. 

Memories of the enjoyable party where everyone ate delicious food passed through my mind.

ーーAnd the smile of Demon King-sama, who looked so happy.

“Whatever I do, I need to organize the situation first. I heard that I can get a severance pay if I go to Kasdar’s family home. . .First, I need to go through the procedures.”

Since I was free now, I had all the time in the world.

I prepared my identification and walked towards the city gate of the capital.
