“If the World War doesn’t seem to be causing any problems, it looks like I won’t be getting involved in the Count Julem riot anymore.”
I said, and Peter exhaled sadly.
“Yes, that’s how it is ……”
Peter’s eyes were hidden by a mask, so I couldn’t see his expression, but he looked a little older than before.
He may have been mentally fatigued from the Count Julem riot.
…… I know I’ve caused Peter a lot of trouble and hardship, but I’d like to think it’s not my fault.
“You look tired, Peter-san.”
“Rather …… It’s more like burnout, I guess.”
Peter let out a sigh.
“You know that I used to be the Pope of the Kudor Church, right?”
This is something that Altamir has told me a lot about.
That witch seems to have a loose mouth.
I’m sure he was called Lord Peltaire before.
“The reason why I gave up my official position to become an immortal, sought power and authority by any means necessary, and even controlled the Dinrat royal family was all for the sake of opposing Count Julem. So that reason is no longer there. I’ve aged so much against Providence.”
Munch says to Peter anxiously.
“I’ll have to let my men go, too, for keeping me company. I think I’ll pass the spark of the world war on to the royal family along with my connections, and let the old monster retire for good. It’s not a good idea to have someone like me nestled in the royal family for so long.”
…… It’s not a joke or a random thought.
According to Altamir, Lord Peltaire was a good man, a sincerely good man, not someone who would cling to power or dabble in the unholy art of alchemy.
In order to protect the Dinrat Kingdom from Count Julem, he must have bent his own life and lived until now as a monster nesting in the royal family.
“I’d like to thank you again. Thank you, Abel-chan. For saving this country and the world. Now I can leave it to the next generation with peace of mind.”
Peter bowed deeply to me.
Myunhi hurriedly stopped Peter’s movement.
“Pe, Peter-sama! Peter-sama doesn’t have to lower his head ……!”
“……It’s all right, Myunhi. It’s all over now, you know. I am no longer Peltaire or Peter.”
I saw the look on Peter’s face, and I knew.
Ahhh …… Peter …… he really wants to leave the world’s stage.
I had a lot of thoughts about Peter’s retirement.
When I think about it, there was a time when Peter almost killed me.
In the beginning, I had the impression that he was a creepy, brutal man who did not hesitate to use any means, but even when he was about to kill me, he guaranteed Mea’s safety and showed no signs of hesitation.
After that, we started cooperating with each other, and he showed his attitude of keeping an eye on me, so the relationship between me and Peter is not easy to describe.
He was like a boss, sometimes a financier, sometimes a conflict of interest, and sometimes a friend.
“…… Um, I’m sorry to say this at this time, but before you retire, would you be willing to let old Pen …… Penrath out of prison?”
“Really, how could you say that at this point in time …… I’m impressed beyond disgusted by that kind of thing about you. I’ll never be bored with you ……”
Peter pressed his head.
“I’m sorry …… but if I don’t ask now, I don’t know what I’ll do …….”
“…… I can’t ignore the fact that you took down the Silfheim …… So, I’ll think about it. Hah~ ……”
Peter let out a painful breath.
It’s worth it! It was worth the effort to ask for it.
“Speaking of which …… what are you going to do now, Kudor-sama? Just being alive will continue to consume magic power, right?”
“I have to go after the two that you let escape. I will sleep after that.”
Kudor replied boredly.
…… and by two, I assume she means James and Shame.
It seems that Kudor can’t let them go unnoticed.
“And there’s one more thing. They are after the head of an organization called the “Balancer of the Scale of Time.”
These are the people who interfered with me when I entered the Kudor’s Great Temple ……
I think it was Rupel, Darras, and Ruin.
“I believe …… the unidentified demon Dioms is rumored to be the head of the organization?”
I must have overheard Peter talking about this when he showed me his list of global threats.
“…… No, apparently Dioms is just a contract demon for the real boss. Their heads are human. The only thing is that they hide their true identity terribly tightly. It seems to me that they are morbidly cowardly rather than cautious. I’m sure he’s quite capable, though.”
I was told that Dioms was also a very dangerous demon, but was there someone standing behind it who could control it?
“Apparently, their goal is to use themselves as a major deterrent and bring lasting peace to the world.”
“That’s a fine thing to hear. Is there any reason to confront them?”
“Of course. It is nothing but a fantasy to create world peace through threats. They don’t understand that if the world follows them, there will be no conflict, and that hubris is already the spark that causes conflict.”
“I, I see ……?”
The story is difficult to understand, but it’s none of my business.
Kudor can do what he wants.
“We may have to ask for Abel’s help again. We’re still trying to figure out how big this enemy is.”
“M-Me? Hahaha …… I’d like you to refrain if possible.”
I laughed and made up my mind.
I don’t want to be dragged into another monster fight between spirits.
“What are you going to do now, Abel-chan? Do you plan to stay in the Fage territory?”
Peter asks me.
As I pondered how to answer, Mea squeezed my hand and smiled at me happily.
I followed the flow and smiled too.
“….. what’s wrong? Abel-chan, Mea-chan?”
“In fact …… I’m thinking of taking some time off from Fage territory and returning to my hometown. I’ll be back in a few years, though. I’d like to take Mea to meet my parents, you know …… I’ve already talked to Lark-san about it.”
“Hmmm …… going back home, that might be a good too, yep, yep …… yep?”
Peter stopped nodding his head and opened his mouth wide.
“Eh ……? Abel-chan, are you guys possibly getting married?”
Peter’s voice rose in surprise as he said this.
I looked at Mea and we laughed at each other.
