The Saint Whose Engagement Was Broken Runs a Cafeteria, Where the Beloved Demon King and Ninja Visit Today – Chapter 60

Chapter 60: Journey to Freedom

The enjoyable mealtime ended all too soon.

After savoring the dessert, when we went outside, the Demon King’s castle, which overlooked the Saint Cafeteria, had disappeared without a trace.

“I smell flowers. . .Has the castle turned into a flower garden?”

“Neither the Demon King nor I, the Holy Beast Kuze, are here anymore. . .The Demon Beast Forest has also turned into flowers and scattered, disappearing.”

Shinobu murmured, his black hair fluttering.

His face was bright and clear.

“I thought I would return to my original lifespan soon after breaking the contract. . .But I’m just back to being a normal man. I’m really glad.”

Kuze-san laughed naturally at Shinobu, who was looking at his palm with deep emotion.

“Even if we’re not master and servant, the relationship between me and Shinobu won’t change. We’re best friends, right? I’ll continue to lend you my magical power, and I’ll leave the Demon King’s power as it is.”

“Thank you… Eventually, I’ll ask Hiira-dono for immortality too.”

“Sure thing, sure thing.”

“Wait, my intention is――”

As I interjected, the two who had become friends from master and servant laughed.

“If I’m immortal, then Hiira-dono should be too. She promised to stay by my side forever.”

“Yeah, if we lose Hiira-chan, we’ll team up and become evil gods.”

“Oh no, suddenly the fate of the world is on my shoulders.”

“Geez, you guys are so selfish.”

Lala-san looked at us with a sigh, placing her hand on her waist in exasperation. 

“Hiira, whenever you’re in trouble and things get tough, come to me. It’s enough to be bothered by others. “

“Hahaha. . .”

The wind blew.

“Hiira. . .I love you.”

Lala-san approached and hugged me tightly.

“Lala-san, thank you for everything.”

“Goodbye, Hiira. . .I’ll make sure to create a place for you to return to. Leave it to me. Let’s meet again in the new Lucidia Kingdom. Bring lots of souvenirs, okay?”

Tears overflowed as I endured Lala-san’s soft body and sweet scent. She gently stroked my hair.

“Lala-san,. . .Lala-san, I. . .uh. . .”

“Hiira. Be happy no matter what. Even if we’re far apart, let’s live freely and happily. It’s a promise.”

“Uh. . .”

Lala-san hugged me until I calmed down and stopped crying.

Shinobu and Kuze-san watched over us quietly.

I could hear Kuze-san talking to Shinobu.

“Leave Lala-chan to me. I’ll protect her properly. As the first believer in the revival of the land god, yeah.”

His voice was surprisingly serious, and I realized that “Oh, Lala-san will be okay.”

Shinobu’s response was also full of trust in his best friend. 

“I hope Kuze stays healthy too. If Draco Cocoon Peninsula gets boring, send your vessel to me. Then we can travel together.”

“That’s a good idea.”

“. . .I want you to come and visit me directly when the country settles down. I also want to show you my hometown.”

――That’s right.

I’m going to travel with Shinobu from now on.

To show him the country where he used to live, now that he’s free from his role as the Demon King.

According to the information Lala-san found, Shinobu’s country is still inhabited and thriving. 

It’s a distant island that has recently started accepting travelers.

After leaving the Draco Cocoon Peninsula and passing through the forest, we take the train to the western end of the continent and then head to the island nation as a transit point.

From there, we can reach Shinobu’s country by taking a regular ship.

Shinobu’s regret as Bitou Shinobu is that he couldn’t protect his country.

Now that he’s free, he wants to see his hometown again and sort out his feelings.

I said I would go on that journey too. I want to leave the country and learn how to cook so I can make even more delicious food.

I want to make memories with Shinobu, who is neither Synovidos nor the Demon King.

After all, I’m his wife.

“Hyaa.”

“Why are you making such a weird noise, Hiira?”

“O-oh, sorry, I just remembered something embarrassing. . .”

“What is it?”

Shinobu looks at me kindly as I laugh with Lala-san.

――This is the beginning of a long, long journey.
