 Krull slowed to a halt. I glanced behind me, but there was no sign of him.
"What do we do now, master?
"For now, let's just listen to what he has to say.
All right, sir.
 Rieke is holding Krull's reins and is standing still.

"All right, don't move!
 A figure with a sword commands us to do so. The figure is covered by a cloak or hood, so you cannot see it clearly. From the sound of her voice, she seems to be female, but I can't be sure.
 I tell Deanna and Sami'a to be on the lookout for it, in case they shoot their bows at us while we're approaching. Of course, me too.
 If it were a normal thief, his friends would appear here and take people, money, goods, crulls and lives, but there is no sign of them. So this is no ordinary thief.

Maybe this is the guy they're talking about?
 Samija whispered to me. Well, if he's not a common thief, then he's none other than the bandit I've heard so much about.
 There was no sign of them behind me when I checked earlier. If it were a bandit, he would have posted people behind him to prevent a U-turn.
 In the first place, it is very wrong for a bandit to appear in front of a running carriage (in our case, a dragon carriage) as if he were a bandit. A more intelligent person would have put a log in the road as an obstacle, or made a play to pretend that he was sick.
 Since he did not do any of these things, he is not a common thief. So the only possibility left is that he is a bandit who has not yet been caught.
 So, I intentionally stopped him because I wanted to know his purpose. If not, I would have shot them with my bow or turned back.

I'm not sure what to make of that.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing. Is this your first time stopping a carriage? You don't get to do that very often.
I'm surprised you haven't been caught before.
"I agree.
 I can only agree with Deanna's whisper.
 Then I hear Liddy's whisper, a little tense.
"That's a demon, isn't it?
"That's it?
"That's a demon." - "That's a demon?
 I strained my eyes to see the figure, but could not make it out. I'm sure Liddy will teach me a thing or two about this in the future. .......

 The figure pointed the tip of his sword towards Krull. Deanna (Krull's mom) almost jumped out of her skin, but I held her back.
"Okay, you there! Give me your weapon!
 The demon ordered Rike. Rique looks back at me, but I nod.
 Rike takes his hand off the reins, pulls out a self-defense knife and throws it into the air. The demon picks it up, defenseless.
 If I were to slash him from the back of the truck, I think I could have done it, but I decided to watch his every move to see if I could find out what he was looking for.
 Of course, I'll be ready to pounce the moment one of us is about to be harmed.

 A demon who was looking at the knife we picked up shouted out. We involuntarily put our hands on the handle. The air was suddenly filled with a deadly atmosphere. Just when we thought we had to slash at them.
"Hey you guys, where did you get this?
 We looked at each other as the demoness raised her knife. The next moment, we couldn't help but laugh.
"What's so funny? Tell me where you got it!
 The demon is half flustered, but seems to be quite upset. I understand, but I'd like you to know our situation.
Where did you get it from? I made it myself.
 I say with a laugh, distracted.
 A dumb voice echoed.
I was just about to deliver it to my client and leave. If it's our product you want, deliver the sword. Then we'll talk.
 I'm getting to the point where I can't even keep my mom in check. I didn't realize it when I was practicing in the evening (which I'm still doing), but my strength is definitely getting stronger. I guess mother is strong is not quite the same thing.
 If she doesn't put down her sword, I'll have to subdue her by force and get her to talk, but I have to be prepared for some damage. I'd like to avoid that if possible.

 The demon hesitated, but eventually put down his sword.
"Good. We're going to get in trouble if we don't, so get in here.
 I feel like we're in opposite positions, but if the guards see us in this situation, there's no choice but to throw us out.
 The demon slowly got into the car. They were probably watching us. I'm wary too, but I can sense from the cheat that they are a little stronger than Diana, but not as strong as Helen. That should keep her at bay.

"I've been looking for a weapon with this mark. I've been looking for a weapon with this mark.

 The demon sat down on the back of the truck and showed me the hilt of the knife - a fat cat engraving. So it's our product you're looking for. I thought there were a good number of them around here, but I guess not.
 Camilo seems to be selling them in the Empire, so maybe the high-end models with engravings are mainly sold there for profit.
As I said before, I made it.
 I pulled out my own knife from my pocket and showed him the hilt. Of course, it has the same engraving. I make a show of looking at him, and the other three do the same.
 It's possible that we all simply bought Eizo Kobo products, but from the point of view of those who were looking for Eizo Kobo weapons, it's a small matter if you can get them.

If this is true, I would like you to make me a weapon.
 The demon bowed to me. I guess he's not a bad guy. I think I'm trusting him a little too easily. It's hard to get rid of this kind of perception from the previous world.
I'd like to say, "Great, ......," but we have a condition for custom-made work. You have to come to my house alone. I'll tell you where it is. Come back tomorrow.
"Okay. I'll do it.
 When I said that, the demon nodded easily.

 I parted ways with the demon before I reached the entrance to the forest on my way home. There are some things that are bothering me, but I'll ask them when I get home.
 I'm already in trouble, but I hope it doesn't get any worse. With that in mind, Krull's cart entered the forest.
