As the white-washed landscape regained its color, I saw a row of reddish-red houses standing in front of me. They were brick houses. I don't know if it's the climate or the culture, but in this capital, it is customary to build buildings with bricks.
'Huh? Not a meadow, okay?
Curiously, Eleonor looks around.
Zesia asks with a superior look.
'The capital of Seegenburg.'
'I thought the entrance to Ahartheln was in Rishalis Meadow?
Sasha says, looking around curiously, perhaps new to the city.
'Do you remember the rumours that Knowthalia mentioned?'
'Let's see, when a mysterious fog settles over the vast licharis meadow that surrounds the capital of Seegenburg, there's a mischievous spirit lurking in it. If you make them laugh, they will instantly appear and guide you to Ahartheln, right?
I nodded and said.
'This information alone will not get you to Ahartheln.
No conditions for the fog to roll in?
Misha looked at me with inelegant eyes.
'Ah. It wouldn't be a test if I told you everything, so I suppose I dared to leave it out.'
Looking for a rumor about the fog?
'Yes. If there is a rumor about a mysterious fog rising in the Licharis Meadow, it is only natural to assume that it is spreading here in the nearest city, Seegenburg. Ask around and you will find someone who knows.
There's something to be said for God's good fortune.
It shouldn't be too hard.
So we should probably split up and ask around, right?
Separate activities are not very desirable, but within this city, it should not be a problem.
From what I saw with my demon eyes, Nowusgaria is still in the Rishalis Meadow. If any other enemies appear, they'll be easy to deal with.
''Let's split up into four groups. Ray and Misa will take the north side of the city. Eleonor and Zecia, you take the east side, and Fan Union, you take the west side. Well, we don't need to get too hung up on the area. Misha and Sasha, come with me.
＜I used the Demon King's Army (Guys) magic to make sure that I could see everyone's vision.
''Then, I'm going to go.
Ray and Misa wave and leave.
'Zecia, I'm going to ask you a question. You're going to ask me about the mysterious fog. Do you understand?
I'll... ask... Do you know what a magical fog is?
'Yeah, yeah. Great.
Eleonor walked away as well, letting Zesia practice her questions.
'Anos-sama, we're going too!
I'm pretty sure there's a Unificationist branch in this city, so we'll go there.
You mentioned in a correspondence meeting once that you wanted a picture of Anos-sama, so I'll get whatever information I need in exchange for it.
If that doesn't help, this book of the saga of Lord Anos will...
Isn't that a bit too much of a stretch for you? Are you okay?
These are for beginners, so I wouldn't be embarrassed to show them to anyone.
Well, why don't you let me take a look at it?
What's wrong with you? What are you writing? It's for beginners. Show me more!
The fan unions leave, squealing and flirting with each other.
Misha nods her head.
'Misha is one of those guys you don't need to know for the rest of your life.
Sasha and Misha lined up beside me as I said this.
'Hey. If you're coming with us, does that mean we're the most likely to be God's children?
Not by much, though. Misha has created a pseudo-god's power. Your demonic eye of doom also has the potential to look into the abyss even more than it does now.
I say as we walk.
Sasha wants to say something, but she doesn't want to.
"If I were the Son of God,
Turning over and staring at the ground in a daze, Misha muttered.
'If it were an order that would destroy Anos,'
As if it were obvious, she said.
Then Sasha turned to me and said to me, "Misha and I aren't going to give up anytime soon.
Misha and I aren't going to give up on you anytime soon. But if we find out that there's nothing we can do about it, we'll pay you back for the life you gave us.
Kuh-uh, I laughed.
'I'm telling you, I mean it, okay?'
I know. That's why I laughed.
A little disapprovingly, Sasha's lips twitched.
Did you think I was going to forget what you said that day?
With those words, both Misha and Sasha fell silent.
'Let's say Misha was born at God's behest to destroy me and you guys got caught up in the unreasonable. Misha grew up as a child who never existed, and Sasha continued to be heartbroken by it. And now, finally. For the past three months, you guys are finally laughing. It's only been three months.
He stops and tells them clearly.
'And then you'll perish? Don't make me laugh. I don't need to think about who it is that needs to be destroyed.
I hold out my hands and offer them to them.
'I told you. I told you I would destroy any unreasonableness that stands in your way. If God brings tragedy upon you, I will destroy him. If the order of the world is the source of your tragedy, I will destroy that order.
Misha and Sasha stare at the proffered hand.
'If you trust me more than God, take this hand.
They took my hand without a second thought.
"Never let go of your hand. As long as you hold my hand, I will save you, no matter what happens.
Misha nodded persistently.
'I'll never let go.'
Sasha looked straight at me.
"I promise I'll do the same.
'Good answer. Don't forget.
Quietly letting go of my hand, we start walking again.
After a few moments of walking, I heard an angry voice.
This is my girl! I don't know if you're an informant or what, but you can't interfere with our business by spreading bad news about us!
If you looked, a small man who looked like a merchant, accompanied by several stern men, was kicking the girl to her feet.
Her translucent light blue hair peeked out from the hood she wore.
''Well you deserve to have a bad rumor spread. You shouldn't do this because you're constantly cheating travelers in a con-like business...''
The girl returned the words resolutely, though her hands were on the ground.
Hearing this, the merchant peeled his eyes away, as if to show his anger.
''What the hell, you bastard! Hey, you're hurting him! You'll make me look like I'm never going to walk down the street again.
People passing by look at them for a moment to see what all the fuss is about, but then, not wanting to get involved, they avert their gaze and quickly leave the place.
It seems that they are not well known in this town.
Well, whatever it is, it's an informant.
"Maybe we've already had a lucky break.
I walked over to the merchants while Sasha gave me a pouting look.
'That's enough of that, isn't it? You are a merchant, you must compete in business. There is no money to be made by kicking out those who have no will to fight.
The merchant looked at me sullenly as I interrupted him and the girl.
'What the hell, dude. You know that informant?
No. I just don't like what you're doing.
Oh, yeah. You don't know me, so you're a nobody. I tell you what, your little girl is the liar. After all, she's a d*mned impostor who claims that there is a forest that doesn't exist. I don't know if it's Ahartheln or whatever, but nobody has ever seen anything like that.
Then the girl glared at the merchant with a snap.
I've got Ahartheln. You just don't believe it.
Looks like I'm right.
"Hey, did you hear that? It wouldn't do any good to be on the side of this poncey b*tc*. I'm not going to say anything bad. Get the hell out of here.
I'm sorry, but I'm on to her. You can disappear.
The merchant was momentarily taken aback by the words.
'What's the matter? Leave now and I'll let you off the hook.
.........and that's why you're a stranger....... It's such a bother. Hey, tell us the customs of this town.
And a gaggle of tough guys surround me.
They'll be ready for a couple of bones.
In this town, they have their own customs.
You're not gonna kill me. Unless you resist, yeah!
The stern man raises his voice.
Kukku, kukku, kukku, hahahahaha.
What the hell, these guys are weaker than anyone else I've ever fought in a reincarnation.
What are you playing at with all this dusty magic?
f*ck you! What are you laughing at?
Laughter filled with magical power echoed in the atmosphere, swirling around and blasting the three men about a hundred meters away.
The merchant's eyes widened, his nostrils widened, and his mouth opened wide enough to dislodge his jaw, and he looked at it with a look of sheer astonishment.
Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, it's just that it's such a crazy thing to say. I just laughed it off.
...laughing, but I wasn't... laughing, because I wasn't... .....
The merchant seems unable to speak due to his surprise.
''.........Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
The merchant shuddered and shouted, but they did not move as they fell to the ground.
They won't be able to wake up for two or three days.
Well. I was told that you were going to teach me the customs of this town?
When I uttered that, he shrank back with a buzz and the merchant backed away.
With an overwhelmingly quick turnaround, the merchant took out dozens of gold coins from his pocket.
Then the merchant gave a flirtatious smile.
Hehe, the hellishness is all about the money. If there's money in this world, anything is possible. Hey, if you like, sir, would you like to be my bodyguard? I'll get you as much money as I can for a husband of this caliber.
What are you confused about?
I drew a magic circle on the merchant with a dumb face.
Suddenly, it was absorbed into his body.
Instantly, the gold coins in the merchant's hand started to rot in tatters.
''.........gee.......gee! What is this, what is this...?
It's a curse. You will never touch the money again.
You're not going to do anything... you're not going to do anything stupid...!
The merchant changes his blood and takes a gold coin out of his pocket.
But every time the man holds the gold coin in his hand, it crumbles into tatters.
After letting all the gold coins rot, the man turned pale.
He must have counted out what his life would be like in the future.
'What, don't be so depressed. I have a good news for you.
With a slight peek of hope, the merchant looked at me.
'The world isn't about money, my friend.
