When Felice, Albert, and Gai warped to Claude, the slave trader Kuzuo opened his eyes in shock and the two slaves showed a slight reaction but did not move.
As for Claude and others, they did not seem to mind Kuzuo’s group at all as they were nonchalantly talking among themselves.
“You came too, Feli?” (Claude)
“Yeah! I wanted to see Fenrir!” (Felice)
“I see. You can’t approach until we are certain that it’s safe, okay?” (Claude)
“It’s fine. I will catch it for you.” (Albert)
“I will leave it to you. Gai, that man talked about a retainer of the Demon Lord who got defeated by a Hero, what do you think?” (Claude)
“There certainly was a Fenrir, but that fellow… can you leave it to me, Claude?” (Gai)
“Yeah, of course.” (Claude)
Receiving permission from Claude, Gai approached the man that was a descendant of Fenrir.
“Hey you, Fenrirs don’t share their blood with other races, no? Aren’t you a Fenrir yourself?” (Gai)
“… Don’t know.”
“There’s no way you don’t know, right? My voice should sound familiar to you. Remember, you know me. Because this voice… is the voice of the man who killed your Lord.” (Gai)
“Killed my Lord… don’t be ridicu… you are lying… that fellow is a human, he can’t be alive!”
“Oy! Who gave you permission to speak!” (Kuzuo)
“Wha!? Are you talking back to your master!?” (Kuzuo)
“Ah~ yes, yes, you be quiet over there. You are getting in the way.” (Gai)
“You… mu!?” (Kuzuo)
Gai who silenced Kuzuo with magic spoke up again to the disordered guard man.
“Well~ that fellow was such a dunce~ He trusted his own power too much and his life was instantly at risk. To think someone like that was the Demon Lord. Truly… it was natural for that fellow to get killed.” (Gai)
“… I don’t care whether you are the Hero or not, I will tear you to pieces and devour you!”
When the man shouted, his body disappeared in a blanket of light and once the light subsided, a five-meter tall, silver-colored beast, a Fenrir, appeared.
Seeing that form, Kuzuo fell on his backside and Claude and others put themselves on guard, but a smile floated on Gai’s face, while Albert tightly caught and pacified Felice who was ready to jump at the Fenrir.
The female guard was silently standing still.
“As expected.” (Albert)
“Kya~! Al! Al, Al! Look, look!” (Felice)
“Yes, yes, how majestic. Calm down~” (Albert)
“Garuuu… you better be resolved!” (Fenrir)
“Resolved? … Then, I shall discipline you.” (Gai)
Gai released his magical power that he usually concealed.
That magical power instantly sent the Fenrir into chaos.
That’s because what he felt from that magical power was indeed the Hero’s magical power, but also the magical power of his own Lord, the Demon Lord.
“What’s the meaning of this! Why do I feel Lars-sama’s magical power from you!” (Fenrir)
“That’s because the Hero and the Demon Lord became one! Although I say that, the Hero’s soul had already moved on!” (Gai)
“Became one!? Eh, then, you basta… you are…” (Fenrir)
“You have quite the guts calling your master names! I am going to thoroughly re-discipline you so be happy… Wilhelm!” (Gai)
“Lars-sama!? Wai, gyaa——-!!” (Wilhelm)
“Ha ha ha! There, there, what’s the matter!” (Gai)
Albert had to stop Felice who tried to join in the fun of the desperately escaping Fenrir and Gai with a barrier, Claude restricted Kuzuo in the midst of the confusion and the female guard slowly walked towards Albert.
No one except Gai and the Fenrir who warned Albert noticed, but the woman suddenly kneeled before Albert.
Albert asked Felice to not speak via telepathy and spoke to the woman.
“The magical power I felt from the barrier you erected before… it’s an honor to be able to meet you in this lifetime. Lord Dragon God.”
“Heeh, you noticed from that little amount? You are quite good.” (Albert)
“No, I feel sorry for appearing before you looking like this.”
“Indeed, but let me introduce myself first. I am Kokuryuu Fearfal, currently living as a human Albert.” (Albert)
“Human, is it? … I am Zoe of Dragon people.” (Zoe)
“Dragon people like yourself are the strongest among Beastmen, no? There’s that Fenrir too, but how did you become a slave?” (Albert)
“T, that’s…” (Zoe)
“Since that slave trader got caught, you will be handed to another slave trader if you are a regular slave, but you can be released from the slavery if you are an illegal slave. That’s why saying everything is in your favor.” (Albert)
“… I left my home two years ago, but I got injured on my travels and got treated by villagers from a certain village. One day, that village got attacked by bandits. I fought but because of my injuries, I lost my sight and got captured.” (Zoe)
“What about the village?” (Albert)
“The elderly were killed, others were captured like myself.” (Zoe)
“I see… anyhow, stand up for the time being. We have to hear that fellow’s side too.” (Albert)
Albert who was putting effort into holding Felice’s hand so she wouldn’t rush towards the Fenrir called out to Gai.
“Oi~! Leave it at that!” (Albert)
“A little more is surely fine!” (Gai)
“We still have things to do, so stop it already.” (Albert)
“Got it.” (Gai)
When Gai stopped chasing, the Fenrir sunk to the floor.
