“Give it to me. . . . . .Hand it over!!”

Lapis was confined in a special underground room of the Asgard Kingdom.

Until the attack of the Ogres, she understood what was happening. When she realized, she was here for some reason.

In the underground room, her father, who is also the head of the Fragment Duke family, Onyx, was present.

“Calm down, Lapis. . . . . .It’s dangerous outside. If you take shelter here, you’ll be safe.”

“Take shelter? Otou-sama, as an S-class Summoner, I must fight. Do you intend to call it shelter when abandoning our citizens and hiding in such an underground place?”

“Lapis, don’t trouble your father too much.”

This underground special room is spacious.

The room granted to the Duke family is more extensive and more lavishly decorated than the Student Council Room of the Asgard Summoning Academy. It has everything you might need.

However, Lapis didn’t want to be in such a room. Her friends might be fighting demons outside.

Lapis remembers Garnet’s words.

“. . . . . .Otou-sama, am I taking refuge here because I am the daughter of the Duke family?”

“Yes. The nobles of the kingdom are taking refuge in special rooms under the Asgard royal castle.”

“What about the citizens?!”

“Don’t worry. There are twenty-one heroes outside. You know, right? Your grandmother is a powerful and excellent summoner. She will surely deal with the demons.”

“. . . . . .”

Lapis saw a woman elegantly sitting in the corner of the room, sipping tea.

It was her mother, the Lady of the Fragment Duke family. Her name is Ruby. She remained calm and didn’t say anything.

“Okaa-sama.”

“Lapis. Don’t panic. Would you like some tea?”

“. . . . . .”

Her parents were utterly hopeless.

Then, there was a knock on the room’s door.

Lapis tried to go out, but was stopped by the guards, perhaps fearing she might escape.

A maid attended to it, opening the door in surprise.

“Is Lapis here?”

“Ah, Princess.”

It was Princess Yorha.

Yorha bowed to Onyx and spoke to him.

“The threat of the demon is gone. It’s safe to come out now.”

“Really? Did you defeat the demon of wrath?”

“Yes. An S-class Summoner did it. The 『Tank』, 『High Priestess』, 『Empress』, and 『Hierophant』 witnessed it. . . . . .It’s hard to believe, but S-class summoner Albero Rushout awakened to 『Fusion』. . . . . .No, something called 『Total Assimilation』, and annihilated the demon.”

“Wha. . . . . .The decorative rank of S-class did that?”

“There are eyewitness accounts. Without a doubt, the S-class defeated the demon of 『wrath』.”

Having said that, Yorha spoke to Lapis.

“Lapis. Let’s go outside; the S-class Summoners are waiting.”

“Yes.”

“You seem down.”

“I. . . . . .couldn’t do anything crucial.”

“I felt the same way. Now, let’s go meet everyone.”

“Yes, Princess Yorha.”

Lapis started walking slowly, following Yorha.

◇◇◇◇◇◇

The security in front of the royal castle was provided by A-class Summoner Esterize of the academy, along with Student Council officers and B-class Summoners affiliated with the Student Council.

The enemy was just one, Ogre, but demons could freely manipulate demon beasts using magic. Since there was a good chance that the kingdom itself would become a battlefield, A-class and B-class Summoners affiliated with the kingdom were preparing for battle around the kingdom. However, reports came in that Ogre, instead of leading the demon beasts, continued to fight on its own.

Esterize, wearing her battle attire resembling a knight’s outfit, had her treasured sword named 『Silver Fang』 at her waist and stood with her eyes closed.

Suddenly, someone approached her.

“Esterize.”

“. . . . . .Your Highness?! It’s dangerous here! Royal family members should go to the underground special room!”

“I want to be by your side. Fighting alongside you is the duty of royalty.”

Naturally, there was no such obligation.

However, Esterize didn’t mind. Prince Sanbart was smitten with her. Being favored by royalty could expedite Esterize’s rise in rank.

Moreover, Esterize believed that while Sanbart might be naive, he had considerable skill as an A-class Summoner.

“Understood. In return, please stay close to me.”

“Got it. Hehe, you say such delightful things.”

“Your Highness. . . . . .”

Esterize gave a wry smile.

Then, she gave an order to Raven, who was just within earshot.

“Raven, send out a crow for reconnaissance.”

“Roger that.”

Raven sent out a summoned beast called Black Raven.

She then gave another order to Rashild.

“Rashild, lead the B-class first unit and patrol the town below the castle. Report any abnormalities.”

“Understood.”

“Alright, I’ll attach my crow to you.”

“Yeah, thanks. Fugil, let’s go!”

“Y, Yes!”

The Black Raven perched on Rashild’s shoulder, and with a tense Fugil being chided, Rashild left.

Afterwards, Esterize continued to give precise commands and stayed alert.

“You’re truly impressive, Esterize.”

“Your Highness?”

“I mean it, an excellent commander. What do you plan to do after graduating from the academy? If you wish, I can entrust you with a summoner army.”

“Your Highness. . . . . .T, Thank you.”

The summoning academy has a six-year program. After three years, one can graduate.

Esterize is in her fourth year and already has her graduation qualifications. She planned to join the military, achieve notable results, and prosper as the head of the Rushout family.

However, thanks to Albero’s achievements, the Rushout family was promoted from Baron to Count.

“Also, there’s one more thing. . . . . .”

“Hm?”

“It’s not the right time or place, but with the threat of the demon here, I feel the need to say it now.”

“. . . . . .Your Highness?”

Sanbart looked straight at Esterize.

A woman’s intuition made Esterize’s heart race━━Could this be. . . . . .?

Sanbart closed his eyes, took a deep breath. . . . . .and spoke to Esterize.

“Esterize, I want to be with you━━” “report, report!! The demon has been defeated, defeated!! S-class summoner Albero・Rushout has defeated the demon!! The demon of 『Wrath』 has been defeated!!”

━━The cry of the messenger, who completely misread the atmosphere.

However, more than that, the content of the report pierced Esterize’s heart.

“Wha━━who, who defeated it?!”

“Huh? Oh, it’s S-class summoner Albero・Rushout!! Wow, a new hero is born!! S-class summoner Albero・Rushout, S-class summoner Albero・Rushout defeated the demon of 『Wrath』!! An achievement that even twenty-one heroes couldn’t accomplish!!”

The messenger’s shout spread, and summoners and knights shout the name 『Albero・Rushout』.

The birth of a new hero.

The savior of the Asgard Kingdom.

Such shouts and praises echoed in Esterize’s ears.
