We returned to the city center of Makeido from the pleasure district and stayed at a proper hotel there.

As expected, in front of Kami-sama, the front desk obediently handed over the keys and allowed us to stay in the highest-grade room.

“Is it okay for us to receive such luxury for free. . . . . .”

“Don’t worry, you’ll get used to it.”

“I feel like if I get used to this, I’ll lose my humanity. Can’t we stay at a lower-ranked inn?”

“. . . . . .I could probably do that if I wanted to, but I can’t control it very well.”

“What are you controlling?”

“Well. . . . . .The. . .power. . .of a god.”

Kami-sama answered while waving his hands around. Darling has a tendency to explain things vaguely.

Anyway, today we have no choice but to take advantage of Kami-sama’s power—I pray that this accommodation’s worth of blessings will fully reach the hotel.

“My body is completely dirty now. Let’s take a shower.”

When I opened the bathroom, the bath was already filled with water drawn from the spiritual spring bubbling up in the city. Roses were even floating on it, and I felt a dizzying spell from the overpowering scent of flowers.

“. . . . . .This is too luxurious. . . . . .”

I muttered, then pulled off the ribbon at the collar of my dress and untied the ribbon in my hair.

I sensed Kami-sama coming up behind me and stopped undressing.

“Kami-sama, I’m going to take a bath, so please leave.”


“Why, you ask. . . . . .Ahhh!!!!”

When I turned around, I let out an ungraceful scream. Kami-sama was standing there completely naked.

His slender yet well-proportioned body was stunningly beautiful, his legs shockingly long—he truly had the physique of a god. But it’s not about how beautiful he is.

“Stop being naked! Don’t. . . . . .don’t show me!”

“But I was naked when I was a snake.”

“That’s different!! My perception is different!”

“I want Charlene to get undressed too. Your clothes will get wet.”

“Wha―?! Don’t. . .don’t undress me, you idiot!!!”

When I shook off his hand, Kami-sama looked hurt.

“. . . . . .Even though I’m your husband? Even though we’ve bathed together before.”


Kami-sama is looking at me with his moist eyes. I’m weak against these eyes.

“Well, before, Kami-sama, you didn’t show your form! Being naked in front of Kami-sama who couldn’t be seen is different! Plus, if I really knew Kami-sama was here like this, I wouldn’t have undressed. . . . . .”

“. . . . . .”

“I’m sorry, I spoke too harshly, that. . . . . .that face is scary, stop it.”

In the end, I washed my body first, then wrapped it in a towel, and made sure my body was hidden by the bubble bath when I got in. He insisted on us bathing together as we had done before, and I was cornered to the point where I had no choice but to agree.

“I can’t relax. . . . . .”

“I’m happy. I wanted to share the spiritual spring with you again.”

“Is, is that so. . . . . .”

Thankfully, the bathtub is large enough that our skin doesn’t touch.

I stretched out my legs, looked up at the ceiling, and let out a sigh as I relaxed my shoulders.

This country has warm spiritual springs bubbling up from various parts of it, a blessing from Kami-sama. The spiritual spring that springs from the cathedral of the church is said to be the source of all spiritual springs (I confirmed this with Kami-sama on the way, and this doctrine seems to be correct).

The country has been protected from threats from other countries and has become a rich land overflowing with spiritual springs, thanks to the contract between the first leading saint and Kami-sama.

“Why are you so far away?”

“Well, even though you’re my husband, I can’t stick to you with a child’s body.”

“I don’t mind.”

“I mind!!”

Even though I shouted, I suddenly remembered.

“Come to think of it, I never asked about this body. What’s going to happen to me now?”

“What do you mean, ‘from now on’?”

“Am I going to age again from a child? Or at some point, will I return to my original age?”

“. . . . . .That is. . . . . .”

In response to my question, Kami-sama paused for a while before answering.

“If you say go back, it can go back. . . . . .If you say not go back, it won’t go back.”

“What does that mean?”

“. . . . . .”

Unusually, Kami-sama closed his mouth. Rather than hiding something, it felt like he was struggling with how to explain. After thinking again, Kami-sama looked at me and asked.

“. . . . . .Charlene, don’t you really remember?”


His expression slightly shadowed by my reaction, Kami-sama continued speaking, his eyes lowered to the bath.

“. . . . . .There is a way to go back. If Charlene inherits the sacred artifact of the first Saint stuck in the spout of the cathedral’s spiritual spring and activates the magic, you can return. If not, you will have to age naturally.”

“I see.”

“For now. . . . . .that’s all I can say.”

After that, Kami-sama averted his eyes and fell silent.

I watched his profile, thinking.

Kami-sama, since I met him, occasionally gives me an oddly lonely look.

Despite being someone who speaks his mind about everything, it was strange that he was trying to hide something.

Is it something inconvenient for me?

It seems related to the condition for me to return to my original form and something Kami-sama is hiding, but Kami-sama didn’t want to say it now.

The silence continued. I peered into Kami-sama’s face.

“. . . . . .Hey, Kami-sama. You’re keeping something from me, aren’t you?”

“. . . . . .”

“Your silence is the answer.”

At Kami-sama, who averted his eyes, I couldn’t help but laugh.

“Well, my husband has kept the promise of ‘never telling lies’.”

I said to Kami-sama, who had half his face submerged in the bath.

“It’s okay, you don’t have to say what you don’t want me to know. When you feel like it, let me know.”

“Charlene. . . . . .”

“. . . . . .I can’t imagine Kami-sama hiding something inconvenient from me. I believe in you. My husband.”

“Charlene is unfair.”

“What’s unfair?”

I thought Kami-sama’s ears were red. Is it because of the hot water since he’s poikilothermic? Kami-sama stayed half-submerged in the bath, looking at me with an intense stare.

“I understand human logic. I don’t want to do anything that Charlene dislikes.”


“I have no intention of asking you for intercourse now, but it’s troubling when you say such affectionate things.”

“Wha?!?!?!??!! Cough, cough, cough!!”

“Charlene, you’ll choke if you inhale bubbles.”

“Do, don’t pick me up. . . . . .!!”

Kami-sama, who scooped me up as I was almost drowned in the large bath, made me sit on his lap. It’s over. A child of eight and an adult man. Societally, everything’s over. My chastity is also over.

“I can’t get married.”

Kami-sama grumbles at me, who is covering my face with both hands and mumbling.

“Do you intend to be another man’s bride?”

“I don’t mean it like that, it’s just a figure of speech. But please stop, I can’t go on like this.”

“I understand, I won’t do anything that Charlene dislikes.”

“Then please let me get out of the bath, darling, I’m at my limit.”

I leave the bath as if escaping and start to dry my body.

Just as I let out a sigh, Kami-sama was again silently at my side.


“You’ll catch a cold, I’ll help dry your hair.”

As Kami-sama combs my hair with his hand, my wet hair quickly becomes fluffy and silky.

“I appreciate it, but wait until I put my clothes on.”

“Why worry.”

“Of course I worry!!! Even more so after what you said earlier!!!”

I shove a towel into Kami-sama’s face, grab my clothes, quickly leave the dressing room, and lock the bedroom door to get dressed.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you.”

The snake that followed me at my feet apologizes in Kami-sama’s voice.

“If you’re sorry then!!! Don’t come in when I’m changing!!!!!”

In such a way, the night goes by quickly amidst the chaos.

As I lay on the bed with Kami-sama (I gave up resisting because he made his usual face when I said we should sleep separately), I looked up at the ceiling and thought.

Now, what should I do next?


Meanwhile, at the church, Lulumia was already trying to remodel the church to her own convenience.
