Kid tossed his baggage aside and pointed his left hand at Leivinia and Nisrok.

“A demon, huh. . . . . .Not bad. So, you want to take them alive?”

“Hold on, calm down. I’m currently talking with them.”

“A, Albero. . . . . .Why did you let them in the dorm?”

“. . . . . .Just felt like it.”

“So, what will you do with the demon?”

“Get information. And then. . . . . .maybe hand them over to Teacher Garnet.”

Leivinia flinched, while Nisrok seemed drowsy.

Kid pointed his left hand at Leivinia with murderous intent.

“Spit it out. The whereabouts of 『Lust』.”

“Uh, well. . . . . .Sister Florentia isn’t in this country. I think she’s hunting prey in a country other than the Asgard kingdom.”

“Call her.”

“W, Whaaat?! Y, You mean, seriously?”

“I won’t repeat myself.”

Kid transformed his left arm into a machine gun.

The menacing form made Leivinia shiver.

“I, I’ll call her, but. . . . . .if she finds out we called her, she’ll kill us!! We’re stronger than Abel but weaker than Hubris, and Sister Florentia is super scary when she’s angry!!”

“You want to die?”

“I’ll call her, okay!! I. . . . . .I wish I hadn’t come.”

“Hold on, wait. If you’re going to call her, do it tomorrow, not right now. It’s hard to fight in the middle of the night. Call during daylight.”

“. . . . . .Tch.”

“Phew. . . . . .”

At Albero’s suggestion, Leivinia was relieved.

Then, the previously silent Ashe spoke.

“So, what will you do with these kids?”

“We have no choice but to watch them. If I contact Teacher Garnet now, she’ll probably just take them away without question.”

“G, Garnet. . . . . .No way!! If that witch takes us, she’ll kill us!! Please, we’ll do anything, just don’t kill us!!”

“. . . . . .They kind of seem pitiable.”

Ridelle felt sympathy.

Nisrok aside, Leivinia looked just like a child.

Without being asked, Leivinia began to speak.

“Nisrok and I didn’t want to fight in the first place!! We just came here because Demon Emperor-sama called us. . . . . .Our abilities aren’t suited for combat, so we just do chores. Of course, we’d want to stay in this world. It’s brighter here. The food is delicious, there’s nothing not to envy!! Ahh, I’m so 『jealous』!!”

Leivinia ranted loudly.

Then, Albero asked a question.

“This world, that world. . . . . .So, the sepia-colored world I see is the world of the Summoned beasts?”

“Yes, those eyes, are they the eyes of 『Jabberwock』? They’re the eyes of 『Summoned Beast King Jabberwock』, the first one Demon Emperor-sama summoned.”

Leivinia answered casually.

◇◇◇◇◇◇

“Sorry, can you say that once more?”

“So, Jabberwock-sama. He’s the king of the Summoned beasts, and the first Summoned beast that Demon Emperor-sama called into this world. Jabberwock-sama was supposed to have been destroyed by Demon Emperor-sama a long time ago. . . . . .but it seems he’s dwelling in your eyes.”

“. . . . . .”

“Hey, wasn’t your Summoned beast a mole? Just maybe, Jabberwock-sama hadn’t completely disappeared. Perhaps, when you were born, you connected to the 『Gate of Souls』, and he took the form of a mole and became your Summoned beast?”

“. . . . . .Sorry, one thing at a time.”

Not just Albero. Ashe, Kid, and Ridelle were all stunned.

Maybe, the history of the Summoned beasts is being unraveled.

“Firstly, what’s the 『Gate of Souls』?”

“Hmm, it’s the door that connects the world of humans and our world. When a human is born, the door opens, and it connects with one of the Summoned beasts in our world. Summoned beasts can enter the world of humans.”

“. . . . . .Enter?”

“Yes. Our world doesn’t have 『colors』, right? This human world is filled with various 『colors』. Summoned beasts are fascinated by this beautiful world, connect with human souls, and come out. In exchange, they grant 『abilities』.”

“. . . . . .”

That was the truth of the history of Summoned beasts.

There’s no reason for Leivinia to lie.

Albero and the others were left speechless after hearing the truth.

“Demon Emperor-sama was a rare human who could open several 『gates』 on his own. Thousands of years ago, he summoned the first Summoned beast into the human world. That Summoned beast was our king, 『Jabberwock』-sama. Since then, Demon Emperor-sama summoned numerous Summoned beasts into the human world and taught other humans the way of summoning, marking the beginning of the summoner’s history.”

“So, how old is this Demon Emperor?”

“I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t die because the 『Queen』 granted him the power of 『Eternal Life』?”

“Queen?”

“Yes, the Summoned beast that’s the counterpart to Jabberwock-sama. The 『Queen of Life』.”

“. . . . . .”

“Demon Emperor-sama. After being betrayed by Jabberwock-sama, he got really angry. He summoned many ferocious Summoned beasts from our world. Jabberwock-sama fought to protect humans and was torn limb from limb and sent back to the Summoned beast world. The rampaging Demon Emperor-sama was then sealed by twenty-one powerful individuals. . . . . .We were left free for a while, but recently Demon Emperor-sama broke the seal. And then, saying he needs to gather power, he started pushing odd jobs onto us. . . . . .”

They got a lot of information.

Rather, there were tons of shocking truths.

Albero looked at his right arm.

“Mog. . . . . .did you fight for humans?”

He felt proud, and couldn’t help but stroke his right hand.

An unknown truth. There’s a possibility that Leivinia might be lying, but right now, it seemed believable.

The newly revived Ashe spoke.

“Even so, it’s surprising that the demon called the ‘Seven Calamities’ turned out to be such a young girl.”

“Well, Nisrok and I were in charge of gathering information. The main fighters were Florentia, Ogre, and. . . . . .Beelzebub. Hubris wasn’t good in combat, so he provided support. Nisrok and I were controlling the demon beasts. Abel was too timid and was always hiding.”

“I see.”

Ashe takes notes.

Leivinia seems to enjoy talking and would answer when asked. Ridelle treated her with some cookies she had bought as souvenirs, and Leivinia happily accepted. Nisrok, on the other hand, was asleep the whole time.

“The seven of us aren’t siblings. In that world, we’re powerful summoned beasts. It’s just that Demon Emperor-sama referred to us as siblings, so we introduced ourselves that way.”

“Hmm. Oh, Leivinia, want to take a bath?”

“Sure! Hey Nisrok, if you’re going to sleep, do it in a bed!”

“Mmmmmm~~”

“You’re getting too comfortable.”

Even Albero couldn’t help but comment.

After all the conversation, Albero no longer saw Leivinia as an enemy.

Checking, he made a suggestion.

“Hey, Leivinia. . . . . .”

“Hmm, what?”

Hmm, what? . . . . . .Given the lack of hostility in her response, Albero couldn’t help but chuckle.

“What do you think about humans?”

“Eh, I don’t particularly dislike them. After all, they can cook delicious food. I once thought of killing you, but now, I don’t really care.”

“What will you do from now on?”

“Call Florentia, right? After that. . . . . .it’s up to you.”

“Understood. So, you’ll stay here?”

“Eh?”

“If you promise not to harm anyone, I’ll talk to teacher Garnet about letting you stay. Somehow, I can’t see you as an enemy. . . . . .nor the others with you.”

“Really? I get quite jealous and envious of humans, you know.”

“That’s the same for everyone.”

“What about Nisrok? This guy is incredibly lazy, he might sleep for months if left alone.”

“Just wake him up. That should be fine.”

“. . . . . .Alright, I’ll stay.”

“Good. And I’ll say it again, don’t harm anyone, okay?”

“Got it! I promise. . . . . .Nisrok, wake up! Promise!”

“Huhhh~?”

After waking Nisrok, Leivinia grinned and made her promise.

Both Ashe and Ridelle laughed and acknowledged Leivinia.

“Alright! Let’s go take a bath!”

“Let’s have dessert after the bath. Sounds good, right, Ashe?”

“Sure! I bought it for Lapis, but that should be fine.”

“Oh, dessert, you say?!”

The three headed to the bathhouse.

Kid remained silent, slightly lifting his hat.

“『Lust』. . . . . .I’ll kill you.”

The start of Kid’s revenge was just moments away.
