I will make sure to knock him
One time, when I was reporting the situation to Metron-sama as usual.
“—— that is all. I didn’t see Kamiya Yato making any suspicious moves.”
“I get it. Good job. Keep up the good work.”
After finishing the report, Metron-sama muttered that word while seeming to reminisce the past.
“Did you go there?”
“Yeah, when I was traveling in secret in the old days. It was when the place where you’re living in now was still called Edo.”
Metron-sama kept talking about his missed past.
According to him, he used to secretly visit earth formerly.
But, how can I say this…
I can’t shake off the uncomfortable feeling when I see him talking about his old days while he’s taking the appearance of a young kid.
Well, at least he’s older than me.
Suddenly, Metron-sama raised his voice, seeming to have recalled something.
“Ah, come to think of it. I’ve created an island there.”
Asking him back, Metron confirmed his words and continued.
“I made it for my own use when I visit earth again, though I got too excited and remodeled it in many ways… ah, I was pretty young at that age.”
He said while blushing.
I just can’t get used to him saying things like this with that appearance.
“However, is it okay? If someone was to find that island, things will turn into a mess.”
“It’s okay. I made it in a way that nobody could find it.”
He seemed to be confident that no one will find it.
Well, if he said it’s okay, then it is.
Gazing at him still nostalgically recalling the past, I made myself believe that things will be okay.
“— and that’s what happened.”
Saying all what she had to say, Lina took a short breath.
“Gods are pretty… free…”
“Gods are breaking the rules…”
Saya and I had a bitter smile on our face, shocked from realizing the privileges of a god. I wonder if all of them are like that.
“Well, Metron-sama has a special character. There was a time when he was called has ‘the god of leisure.’ that’s how much he likes playing around, so it can’t be helped.”
That kid was a god of leisure.
I was slightly surprised to know that, but immediately agreed. It was a perfect title for a kid like him.
Maybe he summoned my class that time just because he thought it would be interesting.
“If he that ki- Metron was speaking about his past, how old is he?”
I forgot and was about refer to Metron as “kid” when I asked Lina.
That’s dangerous. It would be terrifying of she was to get angry about it again. She already reacted to the way I changed my words. Next time, I need to be more careful.
“I don’t know about that too.I remember him saying that he stopped counting after 500 years. Rather, you! What were you about to say just now?”
I barely avoided her suspicion by feigning ignorance. Even though all those things that happened to her because of him, she still doesn’t like anyone to to talk bad about him.
“Hee, so a god lives that long.”
Saya said with an impressed and carefree voice, unlike me.
I somehow felt jealous of her carefree attitude.
Give me some of your easy-going mood at least.
“But still, Metron once came to Edo, huh. And he made an island… island? Wait, could it be…”
As I was muttering to myself, I felt something off in my own words and started pondering.
A few moments later, I decided to ask Lina to confirm my thought.
“Lina, could it be that there is a teleportation system installed on that island?”
“Teleportation system? Yeah, that’s possible. Metron-sama doesn’t have the skill to teleport between worlds, so he may have installed it there.”
Hearing her answer, I understood the situation.
“What about it?”
Noticing my odd reaction, Lina asked me back.
That was because I was probably grinning.
When I made my decision, I stood up, silently.
Saya called my name, confused by my odd attitude.
So apparently, that kid is setting a teleportation system that’s connected to him place.
Then there’s only one thing to be done.
“I’m going punch that kid and the face.”
“What? You mean, Metron-sama?”
“Yeah, sorry but I won’t be changing my mind.”
I went through hard times because of him.
I can’t just let a chance like this go away.
Even if Lina tries to stop me.
“No, I’m not going to stop you.”
However, contrary to my prediction, Lina wasn’t intending to do so.
Bewildered by her shocking reply, I turned to stare at her.
“You’re not going to stop me?”
“I understand your feelings. I mean, I went through the same hardship as well. That’s why I think that letting you go would serve as a good lesson to Metron-sama… not to mention…”
“Not to mention?”
When I urged her to continue, Lina made the same type of grin as the one I was doing, and talked.
“I too went him to go through a hard time.”
She said it with a face not seeming to feel bad about it at all.
I was happy to hear those words coming from her.
“You started acting like yourself too.”
“Thanks to someone.”
We both laughed at the same time.
It was as if two kids thought of a new prank.
“You too, don’t go too far.”
Saya said with a bitter smile on her face, as she watched the both of us laughing that way.
“But is it fine? If I made it to Metron’s place, you will be doubted for helping me out.”
“Don’t worry. I can take care of that part. You’re free to do whatever you want.”
“Is that so.”
She did indeed change from the first time I met her.
At that time, she was more like a mad Metron devotee.
She’s going in the right direction.
After we kept laughing for a while, the three of us started making a detailed plan for our trip to that island.
Just wait you annoying kid. I will be there in no time.
“What’s the matter, Metron-sama?”
“I-I’m not sure. I kinda felt a chill running down me…”
