First Outer World Story Series: The Black Mist that Devours - Chapter 124
Translator: MadHatter Editor: MadHatter
This time, inhumane and sexual expressions are included, so those who are not comfortable with them, you are warned.
It had been two years since I left “White Mist and Black Swamp Forest”.
During these two years, I had been heading northward to Europe with Moyasuke, but naturally, our journey was not smooth.
“After what you pulled off on us, how can you say such a thing?”
The humans were startled by Moyasuke’s presence and unleashed a series of attacks; if I was alone, I’ll be assaulted for a range of reasons, and even if I projected a sense of intimidation, those kin and monsters who were simply focused on growing stronger will strike me.
So I had decided on two things.
“Hee… w-we were just threatened by our master…”
The first was to treat all the individuals surrounding me and Moyasuke as foes and slay them whenever any one of them manifested an intention to commit an attack.
The second was to show no hesitation in killing the subject as soon as they became the target, irrespective of whether they pleaded for their life or claimed that it had nothing to do with them.
“Annihilation is completed.”
Thanks to that, we were now called the “Beast of Disaster of the Mist”. We were not the real beast of disaster, though.
“Now, let’s flee before things get any rougher.”
With a few exceptions, the pedophile lords, their family members, the private army, and servants who demanded our bodies as a toll had all been disposed of at the moment.
“Come on, all of you women, hurry up.”
Incidentally, I was preserving some of them alive so that they can give birth to Moyasuke’s children… Thin Mist Wolves. Though they will be discarded after giving birth several times.
Ah, Kurokiri nii-chan has authorized me to expand my own force of Thin Mist Wolves.
Thanks to this, no human being would be able to escape at a time like this. Each wolf individually was weak and needed to be replenished frequently, though.
“Soon we’ll be in Northern Europe… I’m looking forward to it, Moyasuke.”
Now, our objective was a dungeon in Northern Europe. Aka the World Tree!
Meanwhile, in the “Magic Holy Land” during the time.
“In other words, you want to send out a kin to accompany our party. Is that what you mean?”
“Yes, that’s right. I have always hoped to establish a friendship with other Demon Kings, including your king, the Mist King-dono.”
When we arrive dat the “Magic Holy Land” and were resting and replenishing our supplies, the “Priest of Absolute Peace” came before us and offered such words.
“What shall we do, Mugi-san?”
“There is nothing wrong with that, is there? No matter how much strength we possess, having another helping hand is favorable.”
Apparently, Mugi agreed with the Priest.
I asked the remaining three, Yukiko, Hachi, and Une if they agreed or disagreed with the Priest’s proposition using only my eyes.
“I concur. Since Priest-san is a strong individual, we can expect much from his kin either way.”
“I don’t see an issue as long as they don’t pull us down.”
“I-I’m in favor of it too…”
But still, everyone is in favor of it? Then.
“I understand. Now that everyone has consented, please allow me to meet with the individual you want to bring to our party first, and then I will make the final choice.”
“You’ll judge it after you’ve seen it with your own eyes. That’s an excellent mindset. Well then, please follow me to meet them.”
With these words, the Priest and his group led us to the inner part of the shrine.
By the way, I believed that you were present when the God of Calamity unleashed ≪Disaster Curse≫ all over the globe. I wondered what he thought about the God of Calamity.
“Don’t worry, the God of Calamity is an adversary to me as well. She is not the God I worship, and many humans have suffered because of her.”
So you read my mind… or rather, it is a simple insight.
“Although I am unclear how well you know her or how committed you are to confronting her, I am willing to descend into whatever inferno is necessary to vanquish her.”
While his iron mask obscured his countenance, my ≪Authenticity Judgment≫ indicated that he was stating the truth.
We must, nevertheless, hear this for our own sake.
“I’ll ask you just in case. Do you desire to finish off the God of Calamity with your own hands, even if there are other, more effective methods to do so?”
“No, my goal is only to eradicate her and create a place where those who believe in a righteous God can safely have faith. It’s not necessary for me to overcome her on my own. Therefore, what is necessary at present is to broaden the range of possibilities. I harbor no thoughts of leading you into a trap.”
It was easy to strike up a conversation with the Priest. When I asked him a question, he always said precisely what I hope to hear.
“We’ve arrived. Allow me to introduce her to you. This is my kin, the Kamishijin, Deborah Garfinkel.”
The Priest introduced us to a woman… with a mace on her waist.
“I am Deborah. Pleased to meet you.”
With the power of the pendant containing Mugi’s specially made ≪Translation≫, I can even comprehend the meaning of unfamiliar languages without any difficulties.
As for her abilities and such… yeah. It seemed that it would be fine to let her join our party.
With a nod of the head, I informed Mugi that it was acceptable for her to partake in our activities.
“My advisor has given me permission, and I welcome you to join us, Deborah-san.”
Thus, Deborah joined our party.
By the way, another woman had been added to our party. Since I was devoted to Mibako, the increase in the number of women didn’t make me fond of it in that aspect.
(Third person POV)
At the same time, at the Japanese Demon Conference.
“Things are getting grave, huh?”
Tori, who had replaced Chirito’s position as a member of the Japanese Demon Conference, commented on this as she adjusted her spectacles.
“We have also confirmed the situation. There is not much time to spare, so let’s get on with it.”
As he rolled up the documents in his palm, Yuu urged the other attendees to express their thoughts.
“We are already thoroughly prepared, so we can afford to show up with twice the size as last time.”
Inaho said with an air of assurance that everything is in hand.
“We have no problem either. With the support of the Fox Princess and the Mist King, we are well-prepared.”
Finally, Michiru remarked with a spirited tone.
“Then, just like last time.”
“To the imbeciles who invaded our land.”
“We will strike them back sharply.”
“Let us retaliate!”
And so the war began a second time.
The Octopus King was back in full force two years after the last invasion, and the Demon Kings of this country, who had been in friendly rivalry for two years, was poised to clash.
As soon as she went solo, Izumi turned completely black.
Izumi’s character development just went 180° Σ(°ロ°)
