''What about that demon person you met last time? We were getting along great, weren't we?
Rusty may be a demon, but he's so good that it's hard to believe he's a demon.
Moreover, he seems to want to become a "friend of justice" and is the complete opposite of a demon like Mahro.
I'm sure he'll be able to help you, but there's one thing that can be fatal to Rusty in asking for guidance.
'I thought you guys didn't like Latisnail ....... Well, I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to dismiss that one.
Although I think these people just don't want to take a detour.
With that in mind, I made eye contact with Akira and nodded.
I took over Akira's line and connected the words.
'Of course I was thinking about that too. But Rusty says that he can guide me inside the Demon King's castle, but I don't know because I haven't been out of the demon territory much.
Akira asked me if Rusty could show me around the demon territory, and he asked me when we met just now.
When I told him that we had something to do at the Demon King's Castle and asked him if he could show me around, he smiled and shook his head.
''I'm a so-called boxed girl, you know. I was born and raised in the Demon King's Castle! I've never been out of the Demon King's Castle and I've never seen the Demon Domain! That's why I ran away from home like this: ......'
So how did you get here?
'It's just that, you know, ...... flew in!
Although the conversation was somewhat incomprehensible, I could tell that Rusty wasn't lying.
It seemed that he really had never been out in the Demon Race territory.
When I replied that, the two people who were opposed to it seemed to agree.
''So, what are the conditions?''
At the brave man's words, Akira clammed up for the first time.
On the other hand, Crowe turned a new direction and didn't listen to us.
"Yeah, ...... it, nah.
Looking at Akira's silent face, he seems to be thinking about how to deceive her by letting his eyes wander.
He has no intention of telling you what the real conditions are.
'It's just a little help. I'm going to help Crowe do something that he can no longer do because he's aged. So you don't need that many people. ...... No, I'm just fine on my own.
Akira assured him.
Looking at Crowe's somewhat interested face, it seems he wasn't lying.
It's just that he's probably not getting to the heart of the matter.
I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one. I'd like to meet up with you somewhere, but where would be better?
'In that case, I think this is a good place to be. It's close to the demon race territory, and yet it's also within the beast race territory.
I listen to the brave man and Ziel discussing while unfolding the map.
When I looked at Akira's face while listening with my ears, I saw that he had a somewhat lost look in his eyes.
'Forced sleep' just makes you sleep, it doesn't have any effect on your troubles.
There seems to be no doubt that the cause of Akira's lack of sleep is the condition from Crow.
'...... Don't go there.'
Crow, who had been turning away, joined the conversation just as he was about to settle there.
'Why? We can always get in on the action here, and it's the closest to the demon territory, right?
Jill said to him, and Crow sighed in annoyance.
I couldn't help but listen back to the blurted out words, and he stared at me as fast as he could make a ginormous sound.
It's scary when someone with a bad look in their eyes does it from the beginning, no joke.
'That's why I don't want to go there, because there's an old lady there,' I said.'
I wonder for a moment what the old lady is.
Is she referring to her grandmother?
'Amelia, the hag Crow is referring to is Crow's mother.
Akira whispered softly to me.
I understand, I agree.
No, but I wondered why Crowe's mother was still alive.
The fact that Crow is aging means that she is nearing the end of her life, so her mother can't be alive.
I turned to Akira to see what it was all about and he couldn't look at me because he was smiling at Crowe.
Did Akira know that Crow's mother was alive?
'There's an uninhabited shack just west of there. It used to be a safe house for parties, so they should have all sorts of stuff in there.
I huff at those words.
Come to think of it, I've heard rumors that during the fifty years of researching the Demon Clan territory, they had set up several safe houses to efficiently carry out their research.
''Then let's set up a confluence point there.
The mystery about Crowe has deepened, but we now have a rough path to follow.
I feel like I've been getting into too much trouble lately, so hopefully I'll be able to get around safely if I can.
