“━━I want to die.”

That’s what Ridelle said.

It wasn’t a mishearing. Ridelle’s tears, eyes, and expression told the story.

Albero instinctively stared at Ridelle. In response, Ridelle grimaced at Albero.

“Hey, why? Why am I alive? Both my Otou-san and Okaa-san are dead, and everyone in the village got consumed. . . . . .I didn’t want to die. So, I screamed for help. Then, my Summoned beast, Pink, told me 『don’t die』. . . . . .My legs turned red and became as hard as iron. . . . . .I can’t understand it, I want to die, I really do!”

“. . . . . .”

Ridelle shook Albero’s arm violently.

Albero was at a loss for what to do.

“It’s severe, isn’t it. . . . . .Albero, this girl. . . . . .she’s. . . . . .”

“Stop it. . . . . .Ashe.”

“. . . . . .I’m sorry.”

Of course, Albero understood, and so did Ashe.

Ridelle did not choose to become a Parasitic type. Her Summoned beast responded to her will of not wanting to die and revived by becoming her lost legs.

Unlike Albero or Kid, she did not become stronger from her loss. She lost and her heart died. A regular girl without any will to fight just became a Parasitic type.

What should be done then?

Lapis gently approached and took Ridelle’s hand.

“It may be painful now. But. . . . . .please don’t say you want to die. Have you thought about what your family would want for you?”

“. . . . . .”

“For now, let’s calm your heart, okay?”

“. . . . . .”

Ridelle wept profusely and gave a small nod.

Lapis gently embraced the tearful Ridelle, comforting her with her soft bosom, reminiscent of a mother soothing her crying child.

For about five minutes, Ridelle continued to cry.

◇◇◇◇◇◇

Ridelle eventually stopped crying and seemed to have calmed down.

Now more receptive, Ridelle looked at Lapis, Ashe, and Albero.

“Um. . . . . .who are you?”

“Ah, we haven’t introduced ourselves yet. My name is Lapis. This is Ashe, and that’s Albero.”

“Nice to meet you!”

“Hello.”

Ashe made a peace sign, while Albero casually raised his hand.

Considering the situation, Albero decided to leave the talking to Lapis.

“I’ll explain the current situation.”

“Uh, okay. . . . . .Where are we? And this dress. . . . . .It smells really nice.”

Ridelle began to question her current appearance and location.

Lapis explained simply and clearly.

Ridelle was picked up by a slave trader, was auctioned off to Boobucky, Albero and the others were also auctioned, they are currently in a place where Demon Hubris resides, and Albero and his group came to defeat the demon.

“Huh, a demon. . . . . .The one summoned by the Demon Emperor, the Seven Catastrophes?!”

“Yes. The demon of 『Pride』 is here. We’ve come to defeat him.”

“But, why me. . . . . .?”

“. . . . . .Because you, like me, are of the 『Parasitic type』. There have only been a few 『Parasitic type Summoned beasts』 since the history of Summoned beasts began. That’s why we came to protect you.”

“Parasitic type Summoned beast. . . . . .Pink.”

Pink was the original Summoned beast of Ridelle.

A small pink spider, it always sat on her shoulder, spewing thread, apparently embroidering was its hobby.

Ridelle looks down. However, Ashe speaks up.

“Don’t look down now. Hey. . . . . .do you still want to die?”

“. . . . . .I don’t know. But after talking to you guys, I feel a bit calmer. Right now. . . . . .I want to get out of here. I hate being a slave.”

“Okay! So, Albero, what’s next?”

“Well, if Kid succeeds in the assassination, we’ll just escape, but━━”

It was at that moment Albero spoke.

The ground shook violently.

“Whoa?! An earthquake!!”

“Eek?!”

“Oh no! Lapis, Ridelle, this way!!”

Ashe hugs Lapis and Ridelle, while Albero leans against the wall.

Albero had a bad feeling at this terrible timing.

Then, the earthquake stopped.

“Ugh, uhh… Fu, 『Fragarach』. . . . . .Transport.”

In the center of the room, a battered Arnaud appeared.

Everyone was shocked. Albero quickly rushed over and lifted Arnaud up.

“Arnaud-san!!”

“Sorry. . . . . .We failed the assassination. The Demon Hubris. . . . . .his strength is terrifying. . . . . .Gah!!”

“That’s a bad wound. . . . . .Hey, where’s Kid?!”

“He’s. . . . . .fighting. I’m sorry, I can’t match him. . . . . .With your Parasitic type, join Kid. . . . . .”

“. . . . . .Understood! Arnaud-san, the key.”

“Ah, here. . . . . .”

Arnaud took a key from his pocket.

Albero took it, removed his collar, and handed the key to Lapis.

“Lapis, Ashe, take Arnaud-san to a safe place. Use Gryphon to escape from above.”

“I’d like to say okay. . . . . .but what about you?”

“I’m going to Kid. I have a bad feeling about that earthquake earlier. Lapis, please take care of Ridelle.”

“Understood! Once we’re in a safe place, we’ll come back to support you!”

“Okay.”

“U, Um. . . . . .”

Ridelle looked at Albero with concern.

Albero, to show Ridelle, transformed his right arm.

“Seize it━━『Jabberwock』.”

His right arm turned jet black and took on the form of a gauntlet. Half of his skin turned black and his eyes turned gold.

Ridelle was struck by the sight.

“I’m just like you. Living here, at the mercy of the Summoned beast.”

“. . . . . .Just like me.”

“Yes. I use this power to fight. . . . . .and for the promise with my Summoned beast, Mog. To live.”

“. . . . . .To live.”

“Hehe, maybe I tried too hard to be cool. . . . . .See you!”

Albero stretched out his right arm and broke through the window to go outside.

Ashe and Lapis carried Arnaud and spoke to Ridelle.

“First, we need to get out! Fly, 『Gryphon』!”

Gryphon flapped its wings outside the window and called to Ashe, 『Ride on!!』.

Ashe and the others climbed onto Gryphon’s back.

“Ridelle, get on quickly!”

“. . . . . .”

Ridelle caressed her own legs and was staring in the direction Albero had left.
