You know what I mean when I say the beach.
Hey, this is reizenchuu ssu~
I noticed that Novel updates added “part 2” next to “chapter 75” . I’m not sure why it did that as I didn’t divide the chapter into parts, I never do that by the way *wink*
so yeah, this is the entire chapter; chapter 75 and next will be chapter 76.
that is all, enjoy reading~
Blue sky. White clouds. Sparkling sun.
An inhabited summer island.
Having such a scenery in front of them, the three girls raised a voice of admiration.
“Waaa! How beautiful!”
“Such a gorgeous landscape.”
Saya, Lina and Karen faced the glittering beach with high spirit.
I remained watching the three of them merrily enjoying the fresh ocean water.
“It’s a nice scenery indeed. In many different meanings.”
Three young girls in a gorgeous beach.
It was a scenery that made me want to turn it into a painting.
The ocean was beautiful enough and adding 3 young ladies in the frame made it look even better.
I came here with the intention to kick that annoying kid, but this is a good bonus too.
After the closing ceremony, we started our summer holidays by visiting the island created by Metron.
I brought Karen with me since she insisted on going when she heard me talking about it.
I didn’t have a reason to refuse, anyway.
Of course, we used my teleportation skill to make it here.
As for how we found the island, Lina asked for its location and we both went around the ocean to looks for it.
Finding it wasn’t an easy task.
(this is just the start.)
I turned to look at the rampant forest behind me.
The jungle-like forest was covering almost the entirety of the island.
According to Lina, inside this forest lays the teleportation system used by Metron.
Its existence is just a possibility, but it was high enough to give it a shot.
(I will definitely find it out.)
I got fired up all alone
Though there was a single problem that outbroke from the start.
I couldn’t detect anything on the island when I used 【Space magic (extra-large range)】. Apparently, there was something here that blocked the use of this kind of magic.
Guess I have no other choice but to search for it by myself.
However, I won’t be giving up easily.
I will keep walking around until I find it.
And when I do, I will knock out that annoying kid, surely!
As I was thinking about the moment when I’d be able to kick Metron, I heard Rouga calling me.
It has been a while since I last heard her voice since she was spending all her time inside her kennel.
“What is it, Rouga?”
“What is that? That shiny lake~”
“That’s the ocean. It’s like a giant salty pool.”
When I explained it to her that way, Rouga got somehow excited and persistently asked me to let her go swim.
“I want to go swim in the ocean too~!”
“Yeah, sure, you can go.”
Summoning her to the island, Rouga, brimming with energy, dashed into the beach.
I wanted to start searching for the teleportation system, but I decided to go swim first.
I shouldn’t drag Saya and Karen in my plans, after all. Lina doesn’t count.
That’s why I choose to enjoy my time first.
Let’s leave finding the teleportation system for later.
“Ah, It’s Rouga-chan.”
Saya and Karen were pleased, finding out that Rouga was here as well, while Lina looked at the both them playing with her from the side.
Come to think of it, the first time Lina met with Rouga was when she got her leg bitten by her.
She couldn’t approach them, worried that she will get bitten again.
“What’s the matter, Lina-chan?”
“Ah, no, it’s, nothing.”
“How about you try touching Rouga? She’s cute.”
Saya lifted up Rouga and brought her in front of Lina.
Lina nervously stared at Rouga, while Rouga looked at her with adorable eyes.
They both remained staring at each other that way for a while.
Before long, Lina lost to Rouga’s cuteness and carefully reached out her hand.
“No… I still can’t do that…”
Immediately, she drew back her hand.
Seems like she still can’t overcome her past experience.
“It’s okay. Here, try one more time again.”
Encouraged by Saya, Lina made another try, but the result was the same.
She immediately drew back her hand again.
Reaching out her hand then instantly taking it back.
After repeating that process for a few times, Karen who was watching her seemingly got fed up and made a move.
“So irritating. Rouga, move!”
Following her order, Rouga jumped from Saya’s hands and leaped at Lina.
Astonished by her sudden move, Lina fell on her back with Rouga standing on top of her.
“Wa! No! Sto- stooop!!”
Having her face licked by Rouga, Lina couldn’t hide her fluster.
Karen and Saya watched her in that situation with a smile on their faces.
What are they doing…
watching them getting along like that, a smile reached my face as well and I felt somehow relaxed.
Maybe it was because I got too fired up earlier.
I let loose my shoulders and made a step towards them. At that moment-
“Eliminating all intruders.”
I heard a voice coming from somewhere.
I halted my steps and turned to check my surroundings.
What was that just now?
It sounded like the voice of a little girl coming from inside the island.
What’s going on here…?
Wondering about the source of the voice, this time around, I heard a scream coming from the other side where Saya and the girls are supposed to be.
Hearing Saya’s shriek, I immediately turned back.
The first thing I saw then was an absurdly giant Octopus that showed up in front of them.
He was looking at them while meandering his 8 tentacles.
At that time, I guessed what was going to happen.
Summer, the beach, giant octopus and three young girls.
With these four factors all present, it was extremely easy to tell what was going to happen.
“Eh? WA- what!”
“C-Could this be-!!”
Fixing his gaze on them, the octopus moved his tentacles and entangled the three girls.
Saya, Lina, and Karen who couldn’t move after getting bound by his tentacles, raised loud shrieks.
Ah! So it really happened!
With an easygoing mood, I enjoyed gazing at this banality of a situation.
Fortunately, they didn’t seem to be taking any damage. They were also wearing clothes on top of their swimsuits. Things could have become quite dangerous if they were only wearing their swimsuits. But still, I’ve always wanted to witness this kind of clished situations once in my life.
Suddenly, Rouga moved to help them out, intruding on this magnificent scenery.
She bit off his legs and freed them.
The octopus tried striking Rouga with his left legs, but with that speed, it was impossible to hit her.
Rouga’s level had considerably increased thanks to my training.
There was no way she would go down by such a weak attack.
Running around the octopus while dodging his hits, Rouga bit off all of his legs in the blink of an eye.
Raising a ridiculous scream after getting all his legs ripped off, the octopus ran back to the ocean and escaped.
I wish she could have come a bit later to save them.
Who knows when I will have the chance to witness such a scenery again.
I couldn’t help but feel disappointed by how fast the octopus was defeated.
“Ouch, that was terrible.”
As Lina Rubbed her back while complaining, Rouga approached from the side and gently barked almost as if she was inquiring her safety.
“You saved us?”
“Ah, Um, thanks.”
With a shy face, Lina expressed her gratitude for Rouga then timidly reached her hand and brushed her head.
Surprised by the warm sensation of her fur, Lina whispered an impressed voice and continued to pat her head.
Looks like she finally got over her trauma.
“Were you okay?”
When I asked Lina who was still patting Rouga, she looked at me with a face that was trying to say something.
“Kamiya Yato, why didn’t you come to save us immediately?”
“Eh? Ah, yeah, I couldn’t move immediately, since you were more like hostages…”
I quickly came up with an excuse to Lina who kept looking at me with doubting eyes.
“Hmm, I actually saw your face for a second when we got caught by that octopus and you looked as if you were having fun.”
Looks like she saw through my lie. Lina kept staring at me.
This is bad, she knows about it.
“That’s probably your imagination.”
“Is that true, Kamiya-kun?”
Right when I started losing my composure, Saya came and made the situation even worse.
Turning around, I saw Saya and Karen who seemed clearly mad, staring at me.
“No, this is actually…”
“Yato-kun, come over here please.”
“We need to talk.”
Judging that it was impossible for me to resist, I quietly gave up.
Meanwhile, Rouga went to play around with Lina.
Maybe I should’ve saved them immediately.
That was the only thought I had in mind while I kneeled down to receiving Saya and Karen’s complaints.
Synopsis: Somewhere in the universe, there was an altar. On it, laid a bloody eye as big as the sun itself. It burst with light and bathed the entire star system in red.
"The aura of an ancestral artifact!" Someone's voice rose in surprise.
The Great Galactic Era had begun.
