CH143: Tea Party with Goddess
You guys! If you want to get your hands on Yuri, you’ll have to defeat me first!”
After that, it was just too much.
The sudden appearance of Pendragon had no intention of stopping the duel between Xanthor and Skinhead.
He just wanted to get in the middle of it. He just wanted to get in the middle of it.
And the three of them collide in the city… ,
“…Huh, I didn’t expect to get caught by a military police NPC.”
“No, of course not…”
Pendragon makes a smug face for some reason, and I shove him with disgust.
My current location is an open café in Helheim. I’m sitting facing Pendragon, with Xanthor and Skinhead standing behind me, glaring at him.
“I’m sure you’re the top two supporting Yuri-kun. The fighting spirit in your eyes… You guys deserve to kill me too.
“Don’t be so cool Pendragon. The two of you there were released immediately because I, the Lord of Helheim, had the authority to do so, right?”
I’m not a poof, you idiot. No boss character shows up out of the blue and then gets arrested…
I ask Pendragon again as I gulp down my cold drink.
“So what are you doing here? This is the stronghold of the Demon Lord’s players.
Yeah. And he’s the head of the goddess side. We’re on the wrong side of this thing.
There were many players who didn’t think well of her, and people on the street would glance at Pendragon from time to time.
But he didn’t seem to mind at all. Ignoring all the stares, he was drinking his milk tea carefree.
“Hey, it doesn’t matter. This is a no-holds-barred game world. No matter what your position is, where you go and what you do, that’s up to you, isn’t it?”
I can’t argue with that… Well, in his case… he’s too free… and he’s doing too many crazy things.
“The only reason I’m here is because… I’m here, Yuri. I came here to see you. I wanted to talk to you once before we kill each other for real.
Golden eyes flickering. Pendragon reached out and stroked my cheek gently.
…behind him, Xanthor shouted “Mnh?” I could tell from the sound alone that the skinhead was hitting him.
I just wanted to talk to you slowly, you know…?
Yeah, I know. Like I said when I first met you, I love people who work hard.
She keeps her hand on his cheek as she continues to speak.
“It’s great to see people who work hard. I like to root for those who push the envelope, no matter what field they’re in. And… you can’t help but want to challenge them…!”
At that moment, the air in Pendragon changed.
The touch of your hand on my cheek is like the licking of a dragon’s tongue.
“Oh… That’s a weird thing to do.”
“Well, you know. I guess that’s just because I’m too versatile, too much of a genius. I find someone who can beat me, and I give it my all in their area of expertise. I’d challenge them to a fight… And I’ve destroyed a lot of people.”
I’ve been crushed.
Well, when you lose at what you do best, it breaks some people’s hearts.
“Well, I’m not surprised. Considering the moves you’ve made to beat me. I could see you were disgustingly good and overzealous.”
“Oh… What kind of person am I, huh?”
When Pendragon said that about himself, I said, “Yeah.” I said, “Yeah.
…and then I’m gonna grab her hand and I’m gonna tell her.
“You are truly one of my worst and best rivals. Thank you again for all you’ve done for me.”
Her guileless good looks slightly crumble.
Pendragon looked confused at my words. Then she began to laugh with an annoyed look on her face.
“Kukk… Huh! You really are a funny little boy, aren’t you? You’re not just broken by the despair I’ve caused you, you’re delighted by it! Aren’t you a bit of a psycho?”
“You don’t like me like this?”
“No, I love you, Yuri. You’re my ideal nemesis.
Pendragon leaned forward and dropped a kiss on my forehead.
Xanthor shouts in excitement behind you, and then the skinhead says, “Whoaooooo? and then he turns into a skinhead.
“Well. Then I’d better not be here selling oil. I’m going to level up for tomorrow.
Pendragon stood up.
“Thanks for hanging out with me today. I’m sorry I’m the one who’s talking.”
“No problem. Let’s have a drink some other time.”
I’m going to get up and I’m going to sit down.
And then… We took our blades and we held them to each other’s necks.
Yuri the Demon King. You’re the best prey I’ve found in a long time. I won’t let you escape…!
“[Dawn Goddess Pendragon.] You talk in your sleep, don’t you? You’re the one who’s gonna get caught… !”
We’re gonna kill each other.
Yeah, it was nice talking to you today. It made me rekindle my desire to crush him right before the war.
“Hoo… See you tomorrow. And don’t let up on your killing spree.
Pendragon turns on his heel. He retracts his blade and disappears into the crowd.
What do you mean, “Don’t let up on your killing intent…”
I can’t help but giggle.
. ..because her back was buoyant, like a girl looking forward to a date tomorrow rather than a warrior ready to kill.
