“Kami-sama, I want to help the priest.”

“. . . . . .A man, huh?”

“We don’t have time for such talk. If he’s a priest on the run, he must have the information we want. . . . . .Maybe even about the one who assassinated me.”

“If that’s the case.”

“. . . . . .But what should we do? I’m just a kid and I can only use the saintly powers.”

“I’m here. Let’s kill the pursuers.”

When Kami-sama attempts to release a snake from his sleeve, I swiftly shove it back in.

“I appreciate the help, darling, but let’s try to avoid dangerous things, shall we?”

“But it’s the fastest way.”

“Haste makes waste. Increasing the body count isn’t the best plan. First, I want to confirm what Kami-sama can do. . . . . .Kami-sama can sense [the soul of this country] and use any [saintly power and magic] that humans perform with Kami-sama’s blessing. . . . . .Is this understanding correct?”

“Yes.”

If that’s the case, we should be able to help him sufficiently. It’s probably safest to have Kami-sama perform magic while I make one request at a time. I look at Kami-sama.

“Kami-sama, I need your help. I want to use magic to rescue him.”

“Understood.”

“Thank you! Now, then――”

The rest of my words are cut off and shoved back into my mouth.

Because Kami-sama, gripping my chin with one hand, kissed me.

It wasn’t a playful kiss to the cheek or forehead like always.

Our lips overlapped — and something. . .came in.

“~~~!!!”

My brain is on fire. It feels like something indescribable and massive has been poured into me via mouth-to-mouth.

Changing angles again and again, Kami-sama, contrary to his usual bland attitude, bestows hot kisses on me. This is the first time for me, what’s going on all of a sudden? But I can’t even find words. My brain just feels like it’s boiling.

A tingling sensation courses through the inside of my skin. The nerves that use the saintly power are being overwritten.

“. . . . . .Ha. . . . . .”

Kami-sama easily catches me as my legs give out. He licks his wet lips and wipes mine with a finger. It chills me up to the nape of my neck. My knees are shaking. What. . . . . .what just happened?

With an expression as if the previous heat was a lie, Kami-sama tells me:

“I lent you my power.”

“Huh. . . . . .?”

“If you visualize as you would when using saintly powers, you can use my magic in your body. Like a magician.”

“So, I can use magic freely?”

“Yes.”

That wasn’t what I meant when I asked for his power. This has turned into a big deal.

“. . . . . .And the cost?”

“None in particular. Because your soul is special, Charlene.”

“Hey, isn’t this a cheat. . . . . .?”

It’s worrisome, but there’s nothing I can do. Time is running out.

When I look at the wall clock, not even a minute has passed (that kiss was within a minute?!)

After slapping my trembling knees, I took Kami-sama and dashed into the city.

“Where is he. . . . . .right, I just have to visualize it.”

I try visualizing aimlessly. Then a rush of information floods into my head, and I unconsciously cover my head. A nosebleed.

“Damn it. . . . . .”

“Charlene. Be careful with the control of your power.”

“I guess I have to practice and learn, huh?”

I close my eyes once more, this time restraining the influx of information while I search.

A young man lost and running.

His life force is probably already at its limit. A group of strong souls is chasing him, and ahead of that――

“Found him!”

After wiping my nosebleed, I dashed out without waiting for Kami-sama.

My head is throbbing and unfamiliar spells come to mind easily.

“Barrier magic, then leap magic!”

With a kick, I softly float in the air. The feeling of floating gives me thrills. People do not notice me, who used barrier magic.

“Haha. . . . . .I can even use forbidden magic, isn’t this just the best!”

I landed in front of a fleeing priest after leaping across rooftops.

Muddy and bruised, he gasped at the sight of me. It’s understandable. A little girl dropping out of the sky is bound to startle anyone.

“Hey Priest, you seem to be trying to escape from the Saint’s Guard Knights. . . . . .If you cooperate with me, I could help you out?”

He nodded his head vigorously.

“Good, it’s settled then.”

I squinted my eyes in a smile and extended my hand to him.

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

A few minutes later, the priest, Kami-sama, and I confidently strolled through the bustling streets back to our lodging.

The Saint’s Guard Knights, who were scouring the completely darkened city streets, looked utterly exhausted. When the folks in the entertainment district saw us, they glanced at us, surprised, but quickly looked away.

“I, Is it. . . . . .really safe to be so bold?”

“Of course it is, Onee-chan~.”

I grinned. Kami-sama, holding my hand and seemingly discontent, was glaring at the priest.

The priest had magically extended his red hair and was dressed in a dress that we bought from a shop that caters to prostitutes.

If you put on some makeup, surprisingly, a slim young man can pass. As long as they act confident.

“Let’s go, let’s get into the inn.”

“Okay. . . . . .”

On the first floor of the inn, the landlady and the guests all looked at us at once. Total six of us, no trouble could arise even if we were made fun of.

“Kami-sama, if you would.”

“Hmm.”

As Kami-sama made eye contact with everyone, everyone froze in place.

I said with a grin.

“She’s been staying with me since the beginning, my Onee-chan. You were going to lend her some clothes, weren’t you?”

“Yes. . . . . .that’s right.”

Everyone nodded.

And the landlady naturally lent us some clothes.

“What. . . . . .What are you. . . . . .doing?”

The priest started to pale gradually. I pushed him into the room with a “Now, now.” smile.

And then, I built a magic spell to silence the room.

“Soundproofing magic. . . . . .Haha, all the sound disappeared. No magical fatigue either. . . The authority of God, it’s frightening.”

“You. . . . . .you guys. . . . . .oh god. . . . . .”

The priest starts to pray to God. Kami-sama looked puzzled, and I laughed.

“Take it easy. We may be suspicious, but we’re not your enemy. We harbored you because we want to know what’s happening in the church now. Will you tell us?”

“I. . . . . .I understand. In any case, I ran away because I wanted to appeal to the outside. . . . . .I’d be glad to talk if you’ll listen.”

The priest was frightened for a while, but after drinking some tea and taking a breather, he straightened his back as if he had made up his mind.

It’s a relief that he’s a good person who will trust even a strange child and a suspicious man who helped him on the spot.

“The church is in turmoil, and the treatment of the saint is outrageous. . . . . .At this rate, the Land God Kai will abandon our country.”

A priest who fears the wrath of God.

Kami-sama just silently looked down at him.
