A year had pa . s . sed after the fight with Yuuki .
A lot happened after that .
No, really .
So much that it’s a pain to remember it all .
I broadcasted that I defeated Velda to the whole world .
With the help of optics magic which uses observation magic, I projected myself into the skies of all the countries .
And then, declared under my name that a universal crisis had just pa . s . sed .
The world was filled with joy and slowly the unprecedented disorder came to an end .
And needless to say, it was the people of Tempest who helped bring it to an end .
Anyway, the world has finally regained its previous stability .
A while after defeating Yuuki, I released Veldora .
And then, that guy went on saying stuff like,
“Kuahh—, that was a good sleep . It seems like it’s my turn at last!”
Even considering that he was isolated from the physical world while in the ‘Imaginary s . p . a . ce’, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that he wasn’t reading the atmosphere at all .
And the price for that was quite high .
And so him being punished by his elder sisters couldn’t be helped .
However, his elder sisters-Velzado and Velgrynd’s interest soon went towards Velgaia, the new true dragon, who was riding on Milim’s shoulder .
Although it can be said that he was saved thanks to that, it is also true that that was also the ’cause behind his sisters leaving him’-which he definitely deserved .
“Ggnuuu… that Gaia……”
And so, it was my job to console Veldora, who was feeling jealous of his brother (?) . Just between us, that was extremely bothersome .
Well, when all’s said and done, Veldora is still the same as ever .
Our relationship of him causing problem somewhere and me doing something about it will probably continue here on after as well .
I kinda felt pleasant thinking that but it will be a secret from Veldora .
I mean, obviously, right?
If I were to say that out loud, I can picture him getting carried away clear as day .
As our relation won’t change, not now or later, I don’t even need to say it out loud .
Speaking of his elder sisters, one of them-Velgrynd, has already set out on a journey .
She probably went to search for Rudra’s reincarnate .
“Rimuru, you do have some idea about it, right?”
“Eh?! N-no . I don’t know?”
She did ask me once out of the blue before leaving but I ignored it splendidly .
I definitely did not stutter because I was scared of what she did to Veldora .
It’s just that I got a bit nervous since a very impactful, beautiful lady’s face was very close to mine, yes .
……… No, really .
Well, actually, I do have someone questionable in mind .
But, if I were to speak of his name here, it would feel like I yielded to Velgrynd here .
Besides, I would also feel bad about selling him out .
I think he deserves to experience some peace now that we have regained stability after so long .
……… However, despite my concerns for him, it seems he was quite easily found by Velgrynd .
My condolences . I hope he is blessed with good fortune in his path .
—After that, stories of a hero with a talking sword in hand, accompanied by a dragon and demon spread throughout the world; but that’s none of my concern .
Velzado returned to the Northern Continent together with Guy .
Seems like she will build up a paradise for demons there in the extreme cold where no human can interfere .
Their castle was completely destroyed but she said they will reproduce it with Guy’s abilities .
Moreover, it seems like he acquired the Ultimate Skill: Abyss G . o . d Nodens by using the experience of the final fight .
And this ability even adopted Gaia’s All Creation Manifestation, truly an all-purpose ability .
Seems like he attempted the upgrade while trying to deal with Rudra’s rampaging energy .
Although he seemed a bit dissatisfied because he couldn’t test the ability he went so far to acquire as I appeared right on time .
It also didn’t seem like he had any intention of hiding it since he came telling me about it himself .
“I don’t plan on fighting with you . I am the type who doesn’t take fights they can’t win . ”
Was what he said at that time .
I don’t know if that is his true feelings or not but I don’t want to fight with Guy either, so that’s fine with me .
At the very least, I felt like Guy as he is now could have fought Yuuki on an even field .
Well, I won’t lose to him as I am now but I don’t fancy getting hurt due to being prideful like that .
There’s no reason nor meaning in fighting him, so it’s best if we can get along .
Although I do say that, Guy and I fought a few times after that but I shall talk about that at a later opportunity .
The celestial world was decided to be Milim’s territory .
With Gaia’s All Creation Manifestation, we recreated the parts of the castle and the gate .
The residents of Milim’s previous demon lord territory were migrating successively .
The harpies led by Frey and the Lycanthropes .
And the celestial demons, who are now obeying Dino .
These celestial demons are a new race born from incarnated angels transforming — does that make sense?
