“You are not going to say anything, are you? Well, that’s fine. I have to heal him quickly.”
The Pumpkin-like thing concealed themself by creating rain clouds once around them.
[Why can’t you be destroyeddddd!]
The arm of the God of Destruction attempted to squeeze the raincloud, but it was still prevented by a membrane-like object and could not clench its fist any further.
Apparently, this intermediate-level god possessed some kind of power related to defense and recovery.
“Let me ask you something.”
A voice called out to her, probably from within the rain clouds.
“What is it? If I can answer that question… oops, [Seaman Barrier].”
When the arm of the God of Destruction saw that this intermediate-level god could not be crushed, he now thrust his fist towards Lowizc, but she put up a light blue membrane to block the attack.
Yeah. Unexpectedly, each blow is heavy. Even if it’s rotten, it’s still a god, huh? If I had my usual equipment, I might have fared rather poorly.
“You are an employee of the Multidimensional Trading Company Complex, and unless you receive some sort of order or request, you are absolutely neutral, is that correct?”
“Yeah. That is correct. As long as the payment is made, I will do whatever it takes. Though that being said, I will still have to consult with and report back to the top. Oh, and when you negotiate, you should at the very least display your face.”
[Don’t ignore meeeeeee!!]
With the arm of the God of Destruction screaming and attacking her and the intermediate-level God, the attacks were all blocked without any problems.
Speaking of which, how does this guy talk when he only has arms? Is it sound by causing micro-vibrations on the skin, telekinesis, or some unknown principle… Hmm. It’s a mystery.
Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter.
Saying so, the intermediate-level God revealed themself out of the rain clouds.
That woman was donning a majestic dress with a sappanwood-colored base, accented with bright green strings and red flowers embroidered on it, and on her waist, she wore a rapier with a rose motif that looked like something royalty would wear.
“Your face, no way…”
“Well, that’s the reaction of those of you who live in the world of the gods.”
But what amazed Lowizc more than anything else was her face.
Although the woman’s face was lovely, this was not unexpected given the abundance of beautiful women among the Gods. Her eyes were the dilemma—her pupils were long and narrow, like those of a reptile, and her iris was a threatening golden hue.
And in the Multidimensional Trading Company Complex, there was only one directive for an individual with these eyes.
“My name is Licorice=R=Insanity. I share the same root with the master of the ‘Tower’, whom you know well, and I am now operating as a God of Reincarnation here in this land, escaping from her eyes. In this world, I go by the name of Lean.”
In case of an encounter with her, I am told to immediately inform the president of the details of the encounter.
And in the unlikely event of hostility, I should flee at once.
This is not just a big shot, you know… From the point of view of a lowly God like me, she’s a perfect high-ranking God. How come this person is here? I mean, what on earth do you expect from a petty official who just adores magical girls like myself…
“My life is an otaku.”
“…Um, are you okay? And I have no intention of being hostile to you.”
“Eh!? Oh, yes. Yes, I’m fine. I mean, yes. There is no issue if you are not antagonistic. There’s really no problem. Yes, that’s right. Until I watch the magical girl anime that I have left in the dormitory, I can’t die. That’s why I’ll cooperate with you!”
“Ah, yes. I’m looking forward to working with you.”
She lowered her head to Lowizc, which somewhat perplexed her.
Fortunately, it seemed that she had no intention to be hostile to her.
“So, what is your request?”
[I told you not to ignore meeeeeeee!!]
“My request to you is that I am healing him in the subspace I have created and will bring him back here as soon as I am finished, and then I would like you to accompany him in defeating this foolish thing created by the imaginations and magic of these people.”
[I said don’t ignore me…]
“Hmm. Wouldn’t it be faster if you fought him yourself? And the reward?”
“I can’t fight him because if I used too much power, ‘that’ would find me. The reward will be given to you through him, but it is a dangerous and troublesome task, so of course I will give you something appropriate for it.”
“Ngh. I understand. Then the negotiation is concluded.”
[Enough of thissssssss!!]
She glanced somewhere once but understood that the negotiation was completed and lightly bowed her head.
Lowizc has been ignoring the defensive magic membrane for a long time now, even though he has been hitting her with it, but when the negotiations were settled between the two of them, she finally snapped at the God of Destruction and hit him with an unprecedented level of magic power.
However, she only needed to utter one word to cause the God of Destruction’s arm to fly off with a loud bang as she lifted her right hand.
Yeah. The power of the God of Destruction is impressive. No matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t match the power of a false god.
I almost feel sorry for the God of Destruction. Actually, I don’t think anything of it.
“Ah, Spine? Can you hear me? I’m going to send you some data, so please grant me permission or something.”
[I get it. Wait, heyyyyy!? What the heck is this…]
“I will explain later.”
In the meantime, she contacted Spine and asked for various reports and permissions.
She didn’t want to face punishment later for engaging in unauthorized combat.
“Well then, his treatment is finished, so please take care of the rest.”
And as she concealed her figure in the rain clouds again, her presence disappeared into the phase space, and instead, Pumpkin’s magical power came to the surface.
Now, let’s see what Pumpkin can do.
No one imagined Lean-sama is wearing a burdock instead of a rapier on her waist, right?
No one, right?
Nobody, is there?
You shouldn’t imagine it… Ha! The bloodlust!?
For those who still haven’t guessed who the three protagonists are, they are Pumpkin, Mizuki, and Lean
