He wasn’t afraid to die…but he had one regret.

Mist’s hand holding the knife is tightening.
In this situation, there are only two options: kill himself or fight and be eaten.

Mist’s answer is obvious.
If it was Absolute, he won’t run away.
Absolute would have continued to fight until he was the last man left, even if he was alone.
If it were Absolute! if it were Absolute!

Repeatedly inspiring his heart to give up and break, Mist got up and jumped at the monsters.

“Ooooh!”

He swung his knife at the monster while raising his voice to get into the spirit.
The knife pierced the monster’s vital spot, but before the monster could fall, the surrounding monsters continued to attack with their claws.

Mist’s face is distorted as he is sliced open by the claws, causing pain all over his body.

The knife is repeatedly pulled out and stabbed again, and each time Mist’s body is wounded.
Too much blood has flowed, and he feels as if his head is shaking.
His body smells of death, which he often smells during his missions.

Finally, he loses his strength and collapses on the spot.

(Ah, this is dangerous.)

His vision gradually darkened and his consciousness began to fade.
The last thing he saw wasn’t a monster, but a woman-like being of unbelievably beautiful appearance, standing there as if protecting him.

“Good job Mist, I’ll take care of the rest.”

Mist thought he heard the voice he wanted to hear, but then his consciousness was cut off.

“Are you awake?”

Mist woke up and was now on Absolute’s back.

“Absolute-sama?”

Mist understood the situation and was relieved that he had been saved.

“It is too late for you to finally wake up.
It’s a little irreverent of you.”

“I’m not sure that’s something to say to someone who was fighting to the death just a few minutes ago.
Well, it’s just like you, Absolute-sama, and I’m used to being somewhat relieved.”

Mist tried to get off Absolute’s back but was stopped by Absolute.

He decided to take advantage of Absolute’s words and ask him to carry him for a while.

“I’m so grateful for your help.
I made it just in time.”

It must have been less than 15 minutes since Absolute left.
He didn’t know how he had managed to get to Mist.

“It’s thanks to your skill “fog”.
That was noticeable from the outside, even if you didn’t like it.
I saw it, knew it was an emergency, and was able to rush in.
So I’m sorry you just woke up, but tell me your story, what happened?”

Mist told Absolute what happened after he left.
The barriers were broken and the high specie monsters attacked.
He told him how Lady Cruel had fainted and couldn’t call for help, and how he and Princess Leone had fought a higher specie type of ogre and were saved by Maria.
After that, a horde of monsters appeared and he had to stay back to allow Maria and the others escape.

“I see… your barrier was broken, and Lady Cruel’s case… I understand the situation, although there are some puzzling points.”


“May I ask you something, Absolute-sama?”

“What is it?”

“The higher specie monster broke through the barrier and attacked us suddenly, and just when we thought we had defeated it, a horde of monster arrived.
 Do you know anything about this?”

“……”

“I’m not accusing you of anything.
But…”

Absolute doesn’t speak.
Mist continues, his voice trembling.

“But I feel bad that you didn’t rely on me at a time like this.
We’ve been working together for a long time on our missions, haven’t we? Aren’t we friends…why…?”

Mist trusted Absolute, but Absolute didn’t trust Mist, and he couldn’t stop crying.

Absolute opened his mouth and began to speak.

“I’m sorry…I won’t ask you to forgive me.
But this was necessary.”

Absolute continues.

“I can’t tell you the source of my information, but this is something the church has been planning for some time.
Perhaps there were collaborators at the academy, perhaps even within our own family.”

“I knew that the Church was against the Ark family because of the hero, but I didn’t think you were wary of any of their collaborators who might be among us.”

“If there had been collaborators and they had known that I had discovered the plan and changed it, the damage would have been much worse by now.
Therefore, I wanted to minimize the number of people who knew the information.”

In the original story, some of those under the Ark family sold information about the Ark family and its factions to Michael and the hero.
The fact that it was still in his heart and he could trust his friends, but he couldn’t trust them.

“What about Maria, she didn’t know either?”

“She’s a surprisingly a bad liar.”

Absolute muttered in a whisper as if to organize his thoughts.

“I had Maria hold the transition-inhibiting magical tool to seal the transition within the barrier, but I didn’t think they’d break through the Bowser family’s barriers and rush in.
The barriers shouldn’t be broken by anything more than a higher specie of ogre, but what’s going on?”

Mist was surprised to find that the problem seemed to have deeper roots than he had expected.
It is true that you can’t confide in someone when you don’t know who is on your side.
He decided to accept it for the time being.

“But, are you sure? I don’t mean to ask, but are you sure you want to talk to me about it?”

If Mist was a collaborator, there was a possibility that he would reveal the existence of the source of information he had obtained from somewhere.
The next time he might not be able to use his sources.

Absolute snickered and replied

“Hmph.
You? A collaborator of the enemy? I don’t think so.”

“?”

“From your side, you’re a flake with a frivolous attitude.”


“That’s a terrible thing to say.”

“But you sacrificed yourself to protect your friends.
I don’t doubt that you risked your own life to protect your friends against the hordes of monsters.”

“Absolute-sama!”

“Here we are.”

Mist got off Absolute’s back and looked around.

They had arrived at the headquarters.
The B class Chris and the others, Oriana, who had evacuated earlier, and Princess Leone, who had received medical treatment, were all at the headquarters.

“Bowser-san!”

Princess Leone rushed to Mist’s side when she saw him.

“Bowser-san, are you hurt?”

Princess Leone touched Mist’s body to check for injuries.

“I’m fine.
I was saved by Absolute-sama.
I’m glad to see that you’re okay too.
Princess Leone.”

After confirming Mist’s injuries, Princess Leone put her arms around Mist’s body and hugged Mist tightly.

“Princess Leone? I’m sorry, this is not a good idea, everyone is looking at you.”

The soft touch peculiar to women enveloped his body, and Mist’s heart rate quickened.

Mist, unable to touch the princess’s body, holds up his hands.

“I’m so sorry… to think that you died protecting me… oh thank goodness, I’m so glad you’re still alive! I’m sorry I left you…”

Princess Leone begins to cry, and the strength of her arm around Mist’s body grows stronger.
Mist, not knowing what to do, calls out to Absolute with his eyes for help.

“Put your left hand around Princess Leone’s waist and stroke her head with your right hand to calm her down.
That should help.”

Impatient, Mist followed the advice, and Mist calmed Princess Leone.

“Princess Leone, I am glad you are safe.
But this is not good…”

“Mist, you are a hero who risked his life to save the princess… you are entitled to her embrace.
Take it.”

Absolute turned to Mist.

(Hero…? Oh, because I saved the princess…)

I dreamt of being a hero when I was a child.
A hero who remained alone to protect the princess from the monster horde and returned alive.
It was only for a time, and only those who were around at the time knew about it, but I can say that it certainly came true.

“Thank you, Bowser-san! I’m so glad you’re safe.”

Princess Leone looks up at Mist’s face as she hugs him and says thank you.
Her smile was beautiful, with a slight tinge of red.

Mist felt as if he had been handsomely rewarded with just that smile.
