- I Was Caught up in a Hero Summoning, but That World Is at Peace
- 383 - This May be the Beginning of the Hardest Battle I've Ever Had
The Central Tower, just as its name implied, stood in the center of the city. The area around it was a huge plaza wide enough that it could house an entire village.
Even though there was still a day before the actual event started, there were already lots of people here. The population of the Demon Realm, where most were immortals, seemed to have a tremendous number, and even though you could only attend this event by invitation, it seemed that a significant number of people had still gathered.
Kuro led me into this really huge tower.
[Speaking of which, is this tower going to be used for anything other than the last day’s party?]
[Yes, this is where my family and the others’ subordinates were staying. However, the “top 30 floors” are for Kaito-kun’s accommodation.]
[……The size of this place is strange.]
It’s almost as if the whole building was my inn…… Seriously, what kind of place is this?
As my mind was filled with both anticipation and anxiety, I walked into the tower. The first floor was a large lobby with huge magic circles set up here and there.
[……What are those magic circles?]
[You use them to teleport to each floor. There are so many floors in the Central Tower that it would be difficult to move around with just stairs.]
[I see…… Then, let’s go there……]
[No, no. Kaito-kun will be using the “central magic circle”. That magic circle that was built for Kaito-kun’s exclusive use!]
Whoa there, I’m being subjected to shame play even in this place too? Having to move to the middle of this wide lobby just so that I could use a magic circle that was exclusively for me…… The treatment I received was seriously so much of a VIP treatment that I couldn’t calm down at all.
Feeling the stares pouring down on me again, I walked to the central magic circle with Kuro…… and we finally reached the accommodation space prepared for me.
[……What is this place? What’s going on?]
[Ehehe, what do you think? Isn’t it amazing?]
[W- Well, rather than about this place being amazing and all that…… I’m pretty sure I’m inside a room, but why can I see the “blue sky”!?]
[We can also go fishing here!]
When I arrived, I was greeted by a vast grassland and a lake…… No, no, this place is all sorts of strange.
And in front of my gaze, there was that enormous……
[Why the heck is there a “castle” here!?]
(T/N: お城. Imagine Japanese castles.)
[It’s styled just like the castles in Kaito-kun’s world!]
No, no, there’s no one living in castles in my world anymore!!! W- Well, there might be some few but……
Anyway, it’s not just a castle. The area around the castle was filled with Teleportation magic circles just like the one I had seen in the lobby, and I can imagine that those magic circles are connected to many other places.
[……By the way, what are those Teleportation magic circles?]
[Let’s see. There’s the “swimming pool”, “arena”, “shopping district”…… They’re connected to a lot of places! Moreover, the magic circle in the back of the building can teleport you to various areas of the venue! Also, there’s a magic circle in your room that teleports you to a hot spring!]
[……That’s too many. I mean, there’s even a hot spring.]
[Unnn. I think you call it a natural hot spring back in your world.]
[And where the heck is its water supposed to come from!?]
Everything was completely beyond my common sense. Feeling like my head was starting to ache, I walked along the edge of the lake to the front of the castle.
Reaching the front of the castle, the huge gate opened as if it had sensed my arrival, and Ein-san appeared from inside.
[Kaito-sama, welcome. As you may have heard, I will be taking care of you from today until the end of the Six Kings Festival.]
[Ah, yes. I- I will be in your care.]
[Well then, this way please……]
After a polite bow, I followed Ein-san’s invitation to enter the castle, and when we entered the castle…… The hallway looked like a palace.
[The interior is western styled!?]
[Ah, it’s alright. There are tatamis and such inside the rooms.]
[……Unnn. I don’t even know what’s alright anymore……]
Even so, this place was amazing. Every single decoration I could see in the hallway looked absurdly expensive…… I was really treated like a state guest, which made me strangely nervous.
Then, Ein-san showed me around and for some reason, we ended up seeing the bedroom first.
The bedroom was a tatami room…… but it had a bed placed in the middle. Yep. There’s a bed on the tatami. Let’s not say anything anymore.
Also, the bed was too big. It’s so huge that even Megiddo-san could lie down on it, and it’s on the level where I don’t know what to do with that much space anymore.
Also, for some reason, there are “four” pillows placed side by side……
[Why are there four pillows?]
[Eh? I mean, one’s for Kaito-kun, one for “me”, one for “Isis” and one for “Shalltear”!]
Eh? Why is she acting like it’s so obvious? She just nonchalantly said that us four are going to sleep together…… Eh? Seriously? Was that really the case?
[……I- I don’t think it’s possible but…… Are you also going to stay here, Kuro?]
[That’s right though? We’re going to sleep together, so let’s “take a bath together” again~~.]
She’s trying to kill me. She’s totally trying to wipe out my reasoning.
Being in a situation like this for 7 days, what the heck am I supposed to do? No, this isn’t a joking matter here.
As I was stunned by the words I heard, Ein-san came close to me and quietly whispered into my ear.
[……If Kaito-sama so desires, I can also take care of the nightly duties. At that moment, please feel free to instruct me however you like.]
Why the heck are you participating in the battle!? Stop it please! Don’t whisper in my ear with that erotic voice of yours! That’s super effective on virgins like me, you know!?
I- I wondered why, but I somehow felt faintly anxious about the future…… Will I be able to get through the Six Kings Festival in one piece?
Dear Mom, Dad———— The accommodation facility that I was shown was out of the ordinary in every way. What was even more shocking was that I would be staying with Kuro and the others during the Six King Festival. Perhaps———— This may be the beginning of the hardest battle I’ve ever had.
Today is the first anniversary of this work. Thank you for everyone’s support. It is thanks to everyone that we have come this far.
I’m holding a popularity contest for the first anniversary in the activity report, feel free to participate if you like.
Also, there’s a reason why I put an end to the chapter here…… It’s because the next chapter is in “Kuro’s POV”. No, it’s not that the author is trying to make sure that the main heroine gets the votes, you know? I do favor her, though…..
