The day of the decisive battle is less than ten days away.

And from the day the countdown began, strange occurrences started in the vicinity of the Kingdom of Asgard.

That’s because the demon beasts summoned by Shin began to appear in the surroundings of the Kingdom of Asgard. These demon beasts formed a systematic line, standing still without a single movement, as if they were being controlled by Shin.

Their number: 20,000.

Leading these summoned beasts was Beelzebub, the demon of 『Greed』.

Beelzebub, with a voice echoing throughout the Kingdom of Asgard, declared,

『In ten days. We will launch a full-scale attack. Humans, resist. And then. . . . . .perish.』

That was all he said.

The summoners who gathered in the Kingdom of Asgard began setting up tents around the kingdom. They organized their troops and started preparing for the war ten days later.

One of the hasty summoners even launched an attack on the waiting demon beasts, but the beasts were completely unharmed. It was as if they were under Albero’s 『Hardening』, as if time had stopped for them.

Attacking the demon beasts is futile. Now, they must prepare for the war.

Esterize was also busy preparing for the war.

Inside the tent, she received reports from the scouting summoners, analyzing the positioning of the demon beasts.

“Shin・Asgard. . . . . .Where is she?”

“We haven’t located her yet. Probably, she’ll appear ten days later.”

” I see.”

The demon beasts had surrounded the Kingdom of Asgard.

Esterize divided the forces among 300 summoners gathered in the Kingdom of Asgard and about 1,000 from the Peacemaker squad. A total of 1,300 summoners.

Additionally, 21 heroes were positioned. 13 of these heroes would fight, while the rest would serve as escorts for the royal family inside the Asgard castle.

20,000 against 1,300. . . . . .The power difference was overwhelming.

But, they had no other option.

“Check the positions of the defensive summoners again. Get me the full list.”

“Yes!”

The preparations were meticulous.

There’s no such thing as over-preparation for the final battle against Shin・Asgard.

Esterize’s subordinate suggested a verification.

“What about. . . . . .the S-Class Summoners?”

“They have their own tasks. We will focus on defending the kingdom and intercepting.”

“Defend. So. . . . . .our offense is. . . . . .”

“Given our numbers, we defend. The 13 heroes will attack.”

“Alone?!”

“Yes. The heroes have agreed.”

“But. . . . . .”

“There’s no other way.”

Esterize and her subordinates knew.

The heroes would likely be risking 『their lives』 in this battle.

Attacking against an army of 20,000 was the only option. They were already stretched thin in defense. Moreover, no help could be expected from other countries.

But Esterize reassured,

“Don’t worry.”

“Huh?”

“Something will happen. I believe so.”

“Something. . . . . .?”

Esterize gently looked down at the troop formation documents.

On the corner of the document, the word 『S-class』 was inscribed.

Rashild and Fugil were walking through the town below the castle.

There were few open shops, and not many people were around. The Kingdom of Asgard had been surrounded by demon beasts and no one could leave the country. The residents had no choice but to stay in their homes.

Fugil said to Rashild:

“I was worried about looting and petty crimes. . . . . .but it seems those fears were unfounded.”

“Yes. The residents of Asgard Kingdom are rational. They probably don’t suspect the elite or the special A-class.”

“Indeed. Speaking of which, my brother. . . . . .We are. . . . . .”

“Don’t say it.”

Rashild stopped him.

Their mission is 『internal security of the kingdom』.

Rashild is the captain of the guard. Fugil is the captain of the first squad.

Having become subordinates of Damocles, the two were told by Damocles, who fights on the front lines, to 『take care of the country』. They couldn’t go against an order from a hero, so they carried out their mission.

“The real battle will come after this, once peace is restored,” their elder sister had said.

“You mean the battle for succession to the throne.”

“. . . . . .You know about that?”

“No, just a hunch.”

Fugil, who knew a little about Yorha, thought Yorha wouldn’t silently let her brother Sanbalt take over the country.

Frankly, even from Fugil’s perspective, neither King Zenovect nor Prince Sanbalt were competent. But Yorha was different. She had charisma and charm.

“Princess Yorha. . . . . .reminds me of the wife of King Zenovect. She was called the Shadow Empress and supported the king. . . . . .”

“Fugil. Don’t say more.”

“I’m sorry.”

 ㅤ

Empress Kouhi. Her name was a curse for both Euglena and Hill Climb.

They didn’t know the details, but apparently, during a past succession, Kouhi had framed both Euglena and Hill Climb, leading them to be exiled to a remote region.

“We don’t need such stories. We just need to protect this country.”

“Understood!”

“Fugil, stay alert.”

“Yes, elder brother.”

The two walked with renewed determination.

Fugil murmured:

“Elder brother. . . . . .about Albero.”

“.. . . . . .”

“Isn’t it time to acknowledge him? He’s strong.”

“I know.”

“Then. . . . . .”

“I’ve already acknowledged him. Say no more.”

“Huh. . . . . .”

Rashild didn’t say anything more after that.
