Misha raises her small hand.
“How to find the child of God?” (Misha)
Eleonor let out an *Ah* sound and all eyes focused on her.
“Ah, sorry. It’s something else. I’ve just had a <Liikus> arrive. Can I take it?” (Eleonor)
“No problem.” (Arnos)
“I won’t be long.” (Eleonor)
Eleonor walks a short distance away from our group.
“Sorry for the wait Ledoriano-kun. What’s wrong?” (Eleonor)
A message from the hero academy? Is something wrong?
“Can’t you find the child of God with your demon eyes Arnos?” (Ray)
“Possibly, if I meet them face to face and look into the abyss but that’s impossible since we don’t even know where to start. I can’t see what isn’t there after all.” (Arnos)
“Then should we investigate the backgrounds of the student’s and teachers? If the gods have done something then shouldn’t there be a connection somewhere?” (Ray)
“That will take a lot of time but that’s probably the best action to take.” (Arnos)
I’m not even sure they are in the academy but without any further clues, we’ll have to investigate here.
Hmm, I can feel someone staring at me.
I turn around to see a male student in black clothes standing there. His badge is a six-pointed star and he’s got strong magic power but he’s suppressing it.
No. Isn’t it a bit too strong for a mazoku of this time?
He’s got curly hair and an intelligent looking face.
I don’t know him. He’s certainly not a student of this class.
“Fang of the cursed shield.” Misha mutters.
“What does a member of the chaos generation want with Arnos Gerard?” Sasha says as she moves up and stands by my side.
“I’m sorry if this offends you but I’m not here for him. I’m here for her.” (Gerard)
The boy called Gerad kneels politely in front of Misa.
“Misa Iriologue-sama, I am Gerard Azrema and I serve your father. I am here today on my lord’s orders.” (Gerard)
Misa’s eyes widened in surprise.
“May I tell you more?” (Gerard)
Misa nods though her face looks puzzled.
“The time has finally come and your father has sent for you. If you have any desire to see your father I hope you will come with me.” (Gerard)
“……..Where to?” (Misa)
“I cannot say it here as my lord, your father has enemies. It cannot be known that you are his daughter.” (Gerard)
Misa turns around and looks at me with eyes that are asking for permission.
“Did you say you were called Gerard? When did you reincarnate?” (Arnos)
The male student looks at me with a guarded gaze.
He seems to be cautious of me.
“No matter how much you are suppressing it, your magic is well beyond the level of the current mazoku. Are you going to carry on hiding it?” (Arnos)
“……As expected of the demon king of tyranny. You saw right through it….” (Gerard)
While still kneeling Gerard bowed his head to me.
“After the war between Deiruheido and Azeshion ended my reincarnation finally completed and my memories and power returned to this body.” (Gerard)
“I hope you understand that I was not conspiring against the demon king…..” (Gerard)
“Who is your master?” (Arnos)
“I cannot say.” (Gerard)
“Do you think you can stay silent in front of me?” (Arnos)
“……I am prepared to die……” (Gerard)
Fumu. Who’s his lord that he can command so much loyalty?
“Arnos-sama…..” Misa appeals to me.
I don’t need to ask her how she feels about it.
“I’m not that unreasonable as to deny my subordinates heartfelt wishes. Go ahead. I’ll take care of the rest.” (Arnos)
“Thank you very much!” (Misa)
Gerard stands up and addresses Misa.
“Then I shall guide you.” (Gerard)
Gerad heads off to the entrance.
“Aah, wait Gerard. My subordinate will be in your care. You understand right?” (Arnos)
Gerard turned around and bowed.
“Of course.” (Gerard)
“Then you’ll also be taking another one. You won’t even tell me who you really are so I don’t think this demand is too unreasonable. Do you?” (Arnos)
Gerard was silent for a moment before answering.
“I understand.” (Gerard)
I turn around and look at Ray.
“I owe you one.” (Ray)
“Tell me a story when you get back.” (Arnos)
Ray stands up and moves to follow Misa.
“Am I being a hindrance?” (Ray)
*Fufufu* Misa leaks a small laugh.
“It’s reassuring. I’m very nervous after all.” (Misa)
They both smile at each other.
“Let’s go.” (Gerard)
All three of them leave the classroom.
“Eh? Where’s Misa-chan and Kanon gone? A date?” (Eleonor)
Eleonor finished her <Liikus> and came back over.
“They went to speak to Misa’s father.” (Arnos)
Eleonor seemed surprised.
“Wow…… greeting the father….” (Eleonor)
“Hang on Arnos. Your way of speaking just creates misunderstanding.” Sasha butts in.
“Ask Ray when he comes back if you’re interested.” (Arnos)
“Oh I will.” (Eleonor)
Sasha watches us in amazement.
“What did the hero academy want?” (Arnos)
“Oh yeah. Ledoriano-kun contacted me. It seems they found a troublesome magic tool left behind by Jerga. It seems to be a previous version of <Ask>. They tried to dispose of it but they couldn’t.” (Eleonor)
An inheritance from Jerga? Did he prepare it just in case he was destroyed?
“Would it be best to destroy it?” (Arnos)
“I believe so. It seems he’s coming to Midheys so me and Zeshia will go with him first. If we can’t do it can I ask you Arnos-kun?” (Eleonor)
“Fumu. I don’t think there’s many magic tools you can’t destroy but feel free to ask me if you can’t.” (Arnos)
“Thanks. Ah… wouldn’t it be better to look for this child of God though?” (Eleonor)
“What? Why? If the worst happens and the child of god awakens it’s me they will come after anyway. Go and destroy that magic tool first.” (Arnos)
“I see. In that case I’ll go. I’ll be as quick as I can. Let’s go Zeshia.” (Eleonor)
Eleonor calls out to Zeshia who was listening to everything in silence.
“…… Bye-bye……. see you later……” (Misha)
Misha waved at Zeshia who waved back.
Misha looked at me when those two left.
“Are you going to the union tower?” (Misha)
I was going to ask Melheys about the post-war clean-up today and decide my future plans based on that. He’s probably already in the union tower.
While we’re at it I’ll have him gather information on the mazoku in the academy and how Eldomade became a teacher.
“Yeah, let’s go.” (Arnos)
I leave the classroom with Misha and Sasha.
I send a <Liikus> to Menou to inform her about Nousgalia but it doesn’t connect.
“What’s wrong?” (Misha)
“I tried to send Menou a <Liikus> but it won’t connect.” (Arnos)
I quickly scour the academy with my demon eyes but I can’t find Menou’s magic power anywhere.
There was an unnatural place though.
The 3rd year classroom that Menou is in charge of.
Its concealed very well but the flow of magic is a bit off.
“Hold out your hands.” (Arnos)
I hold out my hands and Misha and Sasha hold them.
Using <Gatom> I arrive in front of the 3rd year classroom.
Misha opens the door.
It’s empty inside with no one to be seen.
“……..Dimensional prison <Azeishis>…..” Misha tells me while using her demon eyes.
A room of magic created in another dimension so no one can enter from the outside.
“Shall I break it Arnos?” (Sasha)
“Go ahead.” (Arnos)
Sasha stares at <Azeishis> with her demon eyes of ruin.
A sound similar to glass breaking rings out and pieces of magic power scatters everywhere before <Azeishis> collapses.
The figures of the 3rd year students fell down when the other dimension collapsed.
“….Aah…..Arnos……” Libest lets out a feeble voice.
I approach him and apply recovery magic.
“…..Menou-sensei was kidnapped…….” (Libest)
“By who?” (Arnos)
“A first-year. One of the chaos generation, Hard Sword Linka Seourunes…..” (Libest)
Libest draws a magic formation.
“I cast Tracking <Enoi> on them and I’m sure it hasn’t been noticed yet….” (Libest)
<Enoi>. A magic that tracks the location of whoever you’ve attached it to.
If whoever has abducted Menou uses their demon eyes they’ll see it though.
They’re very fast. Are they flying?
“They will be easy to catch but this is all very strange.” (Arnos)
A messenger from Misa’s father turns up, the hero academy discovers a magic tool left by Jerga and Menou is kidnapped.
What’re the chances of all this happening at the same time?
“….Then Linka is the child of god…….?” (Sasha)
“A diversion…?” (Misha)
“Is Nousgalia intending to do something when Arnos takes his eyes off the demon king academy?” (Sasha)
Are some mazoku cooperating with this guy or did he deceive them with the body of the fire death king Eldomade?
“It’s not impossible.” (Arnos)
“We’ll go.” (Sasha)
Misha nods in agreement.
“Be careful. They are skilful enough to seal the 3rd years including Libest and carry Menou off. If they are not the child of God then they are more than likely a mazoku from 2000 years ago.” (Arnos)
“We’ll be okay.” (Misha)
“Who do you think we were trained by?” Sasha says while smiling.
They hold hands, confirm the position of Menou using <Enoi> and cast <Gatom>.
