A sunny lunch time, I had a meal with Cass in the downtown area after a long time. And I was completely ignoring the chat window in front of me.

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, is holding a protest sign with Odyssey.]

 

[‘Ariel, guarantee the viewing rights of the Gods.’]

 

Cass gave me an opal bracelet as a gift, saying it was a new trade item.

 

“It’s burdensome. Marquis.”

 

I pushed the bracelet Cass gave me back to him.

 

[The God of Knowlege, Hessed, praises Cass for being sweet even here.]

 

[The God of Art, Mond, advises you to accept only the bracelet and throw away Cass.]

 

So, Cass… is like an ex-boyfriend and customer who stayed as a friend with me.

 

Although I once had a pretty intense love line with him, he disappeared after his confession and returned quite a while later. He didn’t tell me why he disappeared, and our relationship, which lost trust, fizzled out like a bottle of alcohol.

 

However, he was still the temple’s main customer, and he was also the top supplier of chokers for my shop… As a friend of mine, he was pretty good, so we were just getting by.

 

“Please take it as a sample.”

 

Cass pushed the case back to me, and I was forced to accept it.

 

“A sample?”

 

“Can’t you handle it at the Saintess’ shop later?”

 

“You mean it’s a kind of business. But it seems too high end. To sell it in my shop…”

 

[The God of Art, Mond, says it’s high quality and whispers to you to get it quickly.]

 

At my words, he just smiled and poured juice into my empty glass.

 

“Don’t think too hard. If the Saintess doesn’t accept it, I’ll donate it to the temple.”

 

“Then I should receive it. Thank you.”

 

Eventually I thanked him and turned to put the case in my bag.

 

[The God of Art, Mond, is satisfied with your collection of expensive items.]

 

Then, I felt a tingling pain in my foot and furrowed my eyebrows.


“Are you uncomfortable anywhere?”

 

It was a fleeting moment, yet Cass asked me as if he knew it.

 

“N-No. I sprained my foot a little earlier.”

 

The night I was with Reihausd in that room, wearing killer heels called the ‘Cursed Butcher’, my right foot had turned over slightly.

 

At that time, I didn’t heal it because I didn’t feel anything, yet I was experiencing tingling pains belatedly.

 

“After a while…”

 

However, before I could finish my sentence, Cass got up from his seat and came over to me. Then he got down on his knees and took my right foot with his hand. I saw him furrowing his eyebrows at my slightly swollen ankle.

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, drops the picket.]

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey, likes this posture.]

 

[The God of Knowledge, Hessed, grabs one chest.]

 

[The God of Art, Mond, spits, saying not to play tricks.]

 

“Marquis. People are watching. And it’s not worth healing right now.”

 

No one recognized me at the restaurant because I was wearing a casual dress and a bonnet, but when we attracted attention like this, the story changed.

 

“I will heal you.”

 

However, it was when he didn’t care and put his hand on the part of my pain as if he would heal it with his divine power.

 

“Eternal praise to the Saintess.”

 

Suddenly, I saw Cass kneeling down and Reihausd overlapping.

 

As soon as I thought about the golden eyes that longed for me, I reflexively shoved Cass’ shoulder and stood up.

 

[The God of Knowledge, Hessed, is sad.]

 

“I…”

 

Cass was looking up at me.

 

I looked into his ultramarine blue eyes and said hastily.

 

“Then I’ll be going. I had fun.”

 

And I took my bag and left immediately.

 

[The God of Art, Mond, is proud of you for carrying out his own advice.]

 

My heart was thumping.

 

***

 

What was the emotion I just felt…

 

Guilt toward Reihausd?

 

I don’t know why, but I felt like I had an affair with a stranger.

 

“Ha…”

 

Somehow I didn’t feel like going into a temple, so I stopped by the shop for a while then wandered around the main street.

 

It seems like it hasn’t been long since the sun has risen in the middle of the sky, yet the sunset has set in the sky again. Come to think of it, I had heard that Reihausd had woken up in the morning.

 

‘He… can’t remember, right.’

 

Diego’s medicine was said to have the effect of awakening consciousness for a while. I heard that there was a high probability that he wouldn’t remember what had happened.

 

‘How unfair. I’m the only one who remembers that.’

 

I covered my face with both hands.

 

‘Of course, it would be more terrible if Reihausd remembered it.’

 

When I recalled the events of that night, my fingertips and toes felt tingling. I mean, it feels like a person who can’t even dance properly, went out on stage and finished a poppin dance show.

 

‘It was a sight that Oman would have been very happy to see.’

 

I shook my head thinking about that night and brushed off my thoughts.

 

‘I need to buy a cake for Daisy.’

 

Passing through a familiar street, I headed for a cake shop. I can’t spend the night outside anyway, so I have to go back.

 

It was when I arrived in front of the cake shop. An unpleasant sound came.

 

“Selling worm-eaten apples has no conscience!”

 

“Milord. You must have misunderstood something, but I carefully examine the shape before selling apples.”

 

“Then are you saying I’m cheating? Shameless!”

 

I looked to the side and saw a nobleman who was angry with the apple-selling girl. However, the nobleman’s face and the girl’s face were somehow familiar.

 

“You should be taken to the government office. A girl like you should be thoroughly scolded.”

 

“Aakh! Please don’t do this!”

 

A nobleman was dragging the girl by the arm.

 

I could hear people clicking their tongues next to me.

 

“Tsk tsk, to be caught by drunken Hans Ragefield. She has no luck.”

 

“If it wasn’t for the nobleman, I’d say a word. Damn it.”

 

‘Ah, that human…’

 

I recognized him and narrowed my eyes.

 

[The Gods sit down and start eating corn snacks.]

 

In the temple library, there was an evil guy who was hitting on Daisy.

 

That was the link to my first meeting with Daisy.

 

In conclusion, his entire family was expelled from Elium by Reihausd. And the apple girl was the older sister of the boy I had rescued his puppy for.

 

“Ha…”

 

I went towards them with my eyebrows stiffened.

 

[The God of Destruction, Ciel, blesses you.]

 

They say you shouldn’t expect a person to change, and he’s still trash on the street.

 

I had a knack for fixing his habit.

 

As I approached Hans and the girl in a state of annoyance, I met Hans’ eyes.

 

[The God of Art, Mond, frowns arrogantly.]

 

The red-nosed Hans looked at me and narrowed his eyes.

 

The girl who turned to me as I approached also covered her mouth with her two hands, as if recognizing my face, with a surprised look on her face.

 

“You…”

 

“Ohooo!”

 

At that time, Hans looked at me and made a strange noise. And he came closer in front of me with his eyebrows raised.

 

“Has there ever been a beauty like this in the capital? Do you know this girl?”

 

Judging by the smell of alcohol, he must have been heavily intoxicated. He didn’t even recognize me.

 

“Yeah, you’re better than this skinny girl. As the one who’s going to take a night walk with this Sir Hans today.”

 

From the beginning, it seemed that there was no such thing as a worm-eaten apple. Like his habit in the temple library, he was trying to play with the woman somehow by quarreling with her.

 

“You trash bastard.”

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, expresses satisfaction with your words.]

 

I was pondering for a while whether it would be better to break his ankle so he couldn’t go out or to break his teeth so he couldn’t chew food.

 

“Oho, that’s one naughty mouth. How do you know my ideal type is a nasty girl?”

 

“S-Saintess.”

 

The apple girl’s complexion turned pale as Hans reached out and took my arm.

 

[The God of Knowledge, Hessed, prepares lightning.]

 

[The God of Benevolence, Oman, opens his eyes fiercely and speaks swear words.]

 

[The God of Death, Kairos, prepares a special Salerium punishment for Hans.]

 

And then, as something pierced my arm, the girl screamed.

 

“Kyaaaah!”

 

I looked up from his hand on my arm.

 

The tip of a sword had pierced Hans’ wrist.

 

“Aaakh! Uaaaakh!!!”

 

[The God of Knowledge, Hessed, clashes hands with Mond and shouts, nice.]

 

[The God of Love, Odyssey, loves Reihausd’s power.]

 

Hans screamed madly, and the sword was retrieved at the same time as the blood dripped out.

 

I looked around with a surprised face. With his back to the lamp in the dim alley, I could see his unrealistically white uniform.
