Three days on the wagon.
After passing through a strict fortification, the gate to the other world appeared in front of us.
There was a large floating triangular structure in the air. That seemed to be the gate to the other world. The other side of that triangle is a completely different world.
There is no border attached to it. This gate is way too strange and outlandish.
I’ve never seen one before. Abigail couldn’t contain her curiosity as she scanned her surroundings. I was expecting a more imposing gate, but this looks more like a dimensional rift.
『Oh, look, look. Jibodan! Butterflies! It’s so beautiful』
Ferris pointed, and I saw a butterfly perched on the corner of the leading carriage.
It was a very large butterfly with silvery wings.
The carriage passed through the gate.
The carriage passed through the gate, and we entered the strange world of Miforsis with such ease that it was hard to believe.
The butterfly flapped and flew off into the otherworldly sky.
I pointed at it and looked at Abigail, and she nodded firmly at me.
The landscape was one of gentle hills and grasslands.
Green ripples crossed the landscape in layers, and the smell of green grass carried on the wind. The land looked so peaceful.
The sky was blue, and the distant horizon was hidden by snow-covered mountains. The air is warm. The greens of the leaves in the sunlight were vibrant and colorful. It was hard to believe that this was a world ruled by a demon king.
I felt that this was a much more beautiful planet than Earth.
The carriage continued to run without stopping.
It seems that Ferris is going to a place that she goes to regularly, but the purpose is a secret even from Lydia.
The main mission of this expedition is to escort Ferris.
Abigail will be accompanying me as my comfort. Since this expedition was not that long, Abigail was the only one who came with me. Lydia accompanied me as a friend.
My escort is always randomly chosen, but this time Lydia seems to have used her connections to forcefully pick Abigail. Lydia is also a young lady. She has no trouble using her power.
Normally, Ferris’s sister Phoenicia comes along as an attendant and escort, but this time it seems she left it to me and Lydia and didn’t come along. It was worth the effort to continue to show off my obedience up to this point. It appears that they thought Lydia could use me completely with her telepathic skills.
Well, I also have quite a few other guards with me. It took several carriages.
For Ferris alone.
Who the hell are you?
『I feel much more relaxed this time～♪ because my sister is always nagging about it』
Ferris said. She then stretched out, Lydia jumped on her, saying, 『Itadakimasu! The two of them fall down with a thud, leaving behind a faint cry.
It was a horse-drawn carriage with a covered roof. In addition, there are many soft carpets and cushions inside, making it quite luxurious. Ferris is also a young lady. She has a lot of money.
Abigail and I continued our conversation in Morse code from time to time, stealing glances at the girls as they jostled around in the fluffy carriage.
Incidentally, Abigail is dressed up in a skirt today. It’s a resort-like pareo skirt with an excellent deep slit.
When she was taken out of the facility, she was wearing a simple robe, but when Lydia saw it, she said, “That’s a depressing thing to see on a trip like this,” so she prepared it for her.
After all, Lydia is a good girl who even prepares clothes for her opponent.
『So, lately, I’ve been acting as an interpreter for Gevaudan’s girlfriend. Right, Gevaudan?』
Lydia touched me and suddenly said something like that. It seems she was talking to Ferris about Titania.
『Yes. I love Miss.』
『Jibodan’s favorite woman……』
Ferris began to give off a heavy air *Zummum*
『What is this Miss look like?』
It was intentional, though, she hadn’t heard of Titania yet.
Now I’m sitting on my knees in the middle of the carriage floor, and Lydia is lying on my lap. Her hand is touching Ferris, and her foot is touching Abigail. The conversation between the four of us was taking place in a very awkward position.
The warmth of Lydia’s youthful buttocks against my thighs was comforting. So plump. Thank goodness. In fact, my rod is pushing her rear, but Lydia pretends not to notice and refuses to leave the spot. On the contrary, she purposely jerks around and grinds her hips. She glances at my face. You little devil. Damn it.
『She has purple eyes and curly horns. She has long silver hair, and her figure is as beautiful as a flower. Also, she has big boobs. Bigger than Abigail.』
Abigail was caught off guard and exclaimed, “Wha…” Lydia gushed, and Ferris turned her head to look at her own chest.
I have not touched Abigail during the trip because I am accompanying Ferris as an escort.
I don’t have time to do that, because it’s too dangerous.
The closer we get to the gate of the other world, the more frequently magical beasts appear, and after we pass through the gate, we are frequently attacked regardless of whether it is morning or night.
This is as expected of a different world. I was a little cautious because it was my first time seriously facing a magical beast from another world, but when I wielded my butcher knife, I was able to easily cut it in half.
But for Ferris and Abigail, a threat is a threat.
I did my job as a professional and performed my duties as an escort diligently.
What I didn’t expect was Lydia. When it came time to fight, she came out of nowhere with a longbow – a very cool, archery-type, shiny bow – and came to my aid.
Lydia’s hand fired a shot straight between the eyes. An arrowhead pierced the leg of a magical beast. It was a solid shot. As a former sniper, I felt a strong sense of camaraderie.
You’re an excellent archer, Lydia.
『Oh, you know it~? Mmm-hmm♪』
『Yes. It’s an amazing skill to shoot through the legs of a moving target at that distance and with the wind blowing. And with a bow and arrow. Hey, hey, let me see that bow.』
And so, Lydia held out her bow to me. I take the bow in my hand. But she won’t let go of her hand. I’m a little shocked.
『I’ll return it properly.』
『Oh, no. It’s not that. This bow disappears when I take my hands off it.』
The bow in my hand disappeared, leaving behind particles of light when Lydia took her hand away.
This is what it means to be strange and weird.
『What is this?』
My head tumbles down.
『It’s a bow called the
What a horrible name.
『I was born with the
As she said this, a bow and arrow suddenly appeared in Lydia’s hand with a swooshing sound.
『What are skills?』
It’s the power that we humans use with our magic. I think the Skin Disguise that Gevaudan told us about is also a skill. I’ve heard that there are special individuals who can sometimes use their skills, even though they don’t have magical powers. I’ve been curious about it since then, so I looked it up. Gevaudan is definitely special.
I wonder if it’s what we call magic. The aliens call it skill. I think I’ve heard the word
While I was impressed, my current interest was in Gradnega.
When I look at it up close, I can see that it is a very impressive piece of work.
A sense of condensed solidity. The elaborate design is engraved on the glossy ebony wood. When the strings are pulled a little, lines of light appear on the rim, which is very cool. It was a longbow that would definitely look great displayed in a museum as a work of art.
『It’s a really cool bow. I wish I could have tried to draw it, but alas.』
『Oh, no! I’ve been seduced!』
Lydia held her mouth in surprise and then laughed.
『Did you hit on me?』
What do you mean? I didn’t mean to hit on you. ……but I definitely wanted to …… Is there an alien culture where if I say I want to take your bow, that means I’ve confessed to you? I have no idea what it means, but it’s kind of stylish. It’s kinda like “The moon is beautiful”, isn’t it?
『Just kidding. The thing is, this kind of innate skill is called an elite skill, and if married, your partner will be able to use it too.』
『So I can use the Gradnega if I marry Lydia?
『Let’s get married then, shall we? Can we have a hundred children?』
『Help!! I’m getting sexually assaulted!』
As we were talking about this, Ferris came out of the carriage, lured by Lydia’s laughter.
『What? What? What were you talking about, you two?』
『I asked Lydia to marry me.”
Ferris furrowed her brows and raised her voice with a trace of anger.
『She said that if I married her, even I would be able to use Gradnega.』
『Jibodan! damn you!!』
So Lydia started to run around from Ferris, but she was soon caught. It seems Ferris is faster than her. That’s true. She’s fast enough to run away from me when I chase her. When she runs, she makes a swoosh sound that trails off.
…… Oh, and by the way, her grip on my tongue was pretty strong, too. I think Ferris is a bit of a meathead.
Then she pulled Lydia to her feet, looking like she had just thought of something.
『Oh, Jibodan, you’re hurt! I’ll fix you up!”』
and she cast a healing spell. It’s warm.
It’s still a very powerful recovery spell. No, should I call it a recovery skill? How complicated……
『….Aright. What do you think? My
『Feliz’s Soma is a much more sophisticated skill than a normal
Lydia added a supplement to Ferris’ remark.
『Ferris is a good girl, isn’t she? Thank you.』
Ferris laughed and smiled.
After two more days of traveling, our destination was finally in sight.
In front of us was an unusually steep and large mountain. There was a town at the base of it. It seemed to be a town called
As we passed through the gates of the town, I noticed that it was quite a neat town. The atmosphere was like a town full of bathhouses.
The steam rising from the water, the smell of sulfur. This place is a hot spring resort. If I look closely, I can see the usual hot spring fields. There are also many stalls.
Isn’t this just a hot spring trip ……?
As I was observing the town with this suspicion in my mind, I felt a knocking on the back of my teeth. It was No. 5, who had been in my mouth for almost a week.
『 We’ve arrived～～～!』
『It has been a long time～～～.』
Ferris and Lydia jumped out of the carriage with a whoosh.
So I quickly went out, pretended to follow the girls, and secretly extended my tongue and released the centipede on the ground.
It had a black body with red multiple legs and it had a distinctive single horn that was not found on ordinary centipedes.
Abigail, who had been watching, looked at it and nodded.
All preparations were now complete.
I stroked the control device stuck in the side of my head from the top of the paper bag.
All good things must come to those who wait.
I will wait and sleep with Abigail to the fullest.
From a human point of view, it’s magic. From the alien’s point of view, it’s skill.
From the alien’s point of view, they are the humans, and the humans are the subhumans.
