After a while, Diego, who handed me the necklace enchanted with necromantic black magic, said.

 

“You’ve been to the world of death, so why don’t you go to the Demon Realm?”

 

“It seems like you keep forgetting who I am, but I’m the Saintess, you know?”

 

It was oddly annoying that he laughed.

 

I said no, but I was actually a little tempted.

 

‘What will the Demon Realm look like?’

 

Will the terrifying demons and monsters swarm? Or will it be full of entertainment and handsome men?

 

If it’s the latter, I think it’s worth a visit.

 

“I will use this well.”

 

I put the necklace around my neck.

 

Thanks to Diego, I won’t have to set aside time to see Draive again.

 

“Thank you.”

 

Then I heard footsteps walking toward me. A familiar voice was immediately heard.

 

“Here you are. Saintess.”

 

Cass appeared out of nowhere and stood next to me.

 

“Ah.”

 

There was a sharp shade across the top of his face.

 

I remembered sending him a false reply saying I was unwell, and my body stiffened.

 

But rather than ask about it, Cass said to Diego next to me, his eyebrows hardening.

 

“Were you together? Baron Vester.”

 

It was a somewhat ghastly voice.

 

“Nice to meet you. Marquis Lloyd. I was walking nearby and it was noisy, so when I came here, the Saintess was there.”

 

Diego smiled and Cass nodded his head in greeting.

 

“Is that so.”

 

The gaze from Diego’s purple eyes and Cass’ ultramarine blue eyes collided.

 

“What an… unpleasant coincidence.”

 

A corner of Diego’s lips went up in a fishy way at Cass’ blatant words.

 

[The God of Death, Kairos, starts laughing by himself.]

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, disapproves of Kairos.]

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey, draws a line to Kairos, saying that both men are yours.]

 

‘What else are they talking about…’

 

Their gazes collided for a long time.

 

I looked at Diego, laughing, haha, to change the mood.

 

Cass’ eyebrows hardened slightly. He immediately opened his mouth.

 

“I heard about what just happened. Are you hurt anyway?”

 

As soon as I heard the low voice, my heart was beating fast.

 

“There’s… none…”

 

Suddenly, the heat rose to my face and it started to heat up.

 

Did I fall under the curse of Oman?

 

“Hmm…”

 

I barely came to my senses at the sound of a sigh coming out of Diego’s mouth as he looked at Cass with suspicious eyes.

 

“Are you really okay?”

 

But, did Cass always have such a good voice?

 

“Yes, nothing really happened. Thank you for your concern.”

 

I nodded.

 

“Marquis Lloyd.”

 

Suddenly, Diego’s voice interrupted.

 

I could feel Cass raise his gaze and look at Diego.

 

“Did you call?”

 

Cass seemed to tell him something with cold eyes, yet Diego just stared into his eyes.

 

Their gazes intertwined again.

 

[The God of Death, Kairos, is about to die because he likes the gaze of the two.]

 

Diego licked his lips in a low voice.

 

“Do you know about the Pillar of Light?”

  

Fortunately, the words that came out of Diego’s mouth weren’t as hostile as I thought.

 

I frowned and searched for it in memories. It was like something I had heard from Diego at some point.

 

Cass asked Diego what he was talking about.

 

“The Pillar of Light?”

 

“Ah, don’t you know?”

 

Diego smiled lightly and murmured softly, then waved his hand as if it was nothing.

 

“No big deal.”

 

Diego’s eyes turned back to me, and Cass said, his eyebrows hardening.

 

“Nice to meet you. Baron Vester. If there is no other business, then we will go.”

 

He pulled me closer to Diego and put his hand on my shoulder.

 

“…We?”

 

“Do you have a problem with that word? But it feels like the words have been shortened.”

 

I saw Diego’s eyebrows twitch.

 

I opened my mouth in surprise when I saw something like Magi flowing out of his purple eyes.

 

“Ah. Come to think of it, I have something to say to Marquis Lloyd today. It was nice to meet you, Baron.”

 

‘Then put that Magi back. No one knows that you are the Demon King.’

 

“…”

 

“Baron, let’s meet next time and have a talk.”

 

Cass furrowed his brows, but it seemed like it would be a good idea to separate them first.

 

‘Please.’

 

I spoke to Diego silently.

 

Diego, who had been looking at me for a long time with dark eyes, moved his head.

 

“…Don’t forget you said you wanted us to meet next time. Saintess.”

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey, says that the most interesting thing in the world is a love triangle.]

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, agrees with Odyssey.]

 

[The God of Death, Kairos, says that love sprouts through bickering like this.]

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, asks Kairos who and who he was referring to.]

 

I waved my hand at him and turned around. Diego’s gaze seemed to be constantly on the back of my head.

 

But I didn’t say anything and followed Cass with a nervous feeling.

 

‘These two, what’s wrong with the atmosphere…’

 

It’s so nerve-wracking.

 

“Why didn’t you tell me when you were going out of the temple?”

 

I stopped when I heard Cass’ voice again. Before I knew it, we came to a deserted alley.

 

“…”

 

“Why did you keep avoiding contact with me?”

 

It wasn’t an accusatory tone, but it struck me as one.

 

“Were you close friends with Diego Vester? I know you once encounter with him, though.”

 

I wiggled my clenched hands.

 

“So… To begin with, why did I avoid the Marquis…”

 

Earlier, I was able to speak well in front of people, yet now, standing in front of Cass, I feel like the words are going back into my throat.

 

[The God of Justice, Hetuse, blesses you.]

 

“It’s a little strange.”

 

I hesitated, but finally told the truth.

 

I saw Cass eyebrows move at my words.

 

“I don’t know. It’s just… just, my heart..”

 

It was strange.

 

As far as I know, that word was the only appropriate expression.

 

[The God of Benevolence Oman, urges you to say that you want to kiss him hot.]

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey, urges you to say that you want to ■■.]

 

“When I think of the Marquis…”

 

[The God of Benevolence Oman, urges you to say that you want to kiss him hot.]

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey…]

 

You crazy jerks! Stop spamming!

 

Now it’s to the point where I can’t tell if it’s a lewd demon or an intruder.

 

“So I…”

 

I lowered my head a little.

 

It was the first time I had this feeling, so I didn’t know how to express it. And it was just when I was about to speak. A cry was heard.

 

“The Saintess is over there!”

 

I looked back in amazement.

 

It was an official of the Imperial Palace.

 

“I heard you had something to do on the street. His Imperial Majesty the Emperor has sent a carriage. We shall go together.”

 

He looked at Cass and said.

 

“Ah, you were with Marquis Lloyd.”

 

[The God of Knowledge, Hessed, aims a thunderbolt at the official who disturbed you.]

 

[The God of Benevolence, encourages Hessed.]

 

[The God of Justice, Hetuse, hurriedly stops Oman and Hessed.]

 

I said to Cass with an awkward expression.

 

“hmm. Actually, because I’m on my way to the Imperial Palace right now. Let’s talk next time.”

 

And it was when I was going to follow the official.

 

I heard his voice behind me.

 

“Tonight. I’m going to hear the answer I couldn’t hear just now. So don’t sleep and wait for me.”

 

My heart skipped a beat at that voice again.

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, agrees, saying that it’s better to watch hot scenes at night than during the day.]

 

“…”

 

I nodded once without speaking.

 

***

 

Returning to the Deviamon Guild, Diego sat down with cold eyes. He raised his hand and created something purple and black.

 

After a while, at his black magic call, his subordinate opened the door and appeared.

 

“Did you call me? Baron.”

 

“It’s hard to play human. Such a cheeky fellow.”

 

The thought of someone putting his hand on Ariel’s shoulder made him feel annoyed. He didn’t know the exact reason though.

 

Diego turned his chair around and spoke to his men.

 

“I have a question about the Lloyd family.”

 

“Are you saying Marquis Cass Lloyd’s Lloyd Merchant?”

 

The human world is more enjoyable than the Demon Realm, so he stayed in the human world for quite a while, but Diego wasn’t interested in politics or other family affairs. So it was very unusual for him to ask about any family.

 

“Yeah, all the oddities concerning Lloyd.”

 

Lloyd is a family with the greatest wealth throughout the Empire and the continent, and is unquestionably the best of the Empire.

 

Their wealth was very old, and so was their reputation.

 

“How they got rich, and when they started running the guild.”

 

“As far as is known…”

 

The subordinate frowned and fumbled in his memories.

 

“I have heard that the Lloyds, like some nobles in this country, weren’t a family of the Empire at their roots. There is a legend that they’re the royal family from the Golden Kingdom on the outskirts a long time ago…”

 

“the Golden Kingdom?”

 

“It’s like a legend that nobody knows whether it’s true or not. The wealth of the Lloyd family is so great that such a story may be circulating. Anyway, it’s true that they’re a family that fled from somewhere in the distant past.”

 

“Hmm…”

 

“We don’t know much about Lloyd because they confide in other people’s information like that, but their own information is confidential.”

 

Diego had heard of the Golden Kingdom.

 

Leto had said such a thing while mocking the Primordial God.

 

The ‘will of the Primordial God’ came to a certain kingdom just once a long time ago, and the country prospered, yet in the end, it was corrupted and angered, and the Primordial destroyed it.

 

It was a trivial story.

 

‘But that pillar behind him… It’s something I haven’t seen before. What happened?’

 

Diego furrowed his eyebrows.
