In a certain room.
A room where books, gaming consoles and half-eaten snacks were scattered all over the place. The clothes of the owner of the room were lying on a sofa and his old-fashioned computer was placed on a desk. The person who was sprawling on that sofa was a blond child.

“Ah, I’m tired.”

Metron groaned as he stretched out his arms. After finishing his job for today, he laid on the sofa as to distract from his tiredness. That place was his personal room. The pure white room that he uses in his meetings was for business purposes, while this one was his true land of peace and one of his irreplaceable fortunes.
Snacks, manga, games. It had all the necessary entertainment needs to live up to his title, “the God of Leisure”.

Among all these games, he was recently hooked to a multiplayer game on his computer. He brought a computer from Earth-chan out of plain curiosity, but he ended up finding it rather interesting. He had no idea that online games could be this much fun. He felt as if a lightning struck his head when he first discovered it, and he has played it enough as if he would die, if his saved data were to be deleted. He knew it well that he won’t be able to bear seeing all the achievements he unlocked through countless all-nighters coming into nothingness. That’s how Metron got addicted to online games.

“Once I get some rest, I will resume it.”

He was planning to change his character job and work on improving his production skills. He buried his face in the sofa while talking to himself. Suddenly, he remembered the task which he entrusted to Sara the other day.

“I wonder if she will be okay.”

Sara’s skill was completely suited for utter destruction. For that sole reason, he was certain that she could achieve the task with ease, however, until now she still didn’t get in touch with him.

“Did something maybe happen~?”

He was aware of the mischievous defensive traps set inside the island, but they’re probably not functioning anymore by now. Even the AI which he left to manage the island should have ran out of magic and shutdown.

“Well, she should be alright.”

While sprawling in his sofa, Metron muttered in a sluggish tone. Metron realized that it would be useless to think about it at this point. Besides, the teleportation magic circle leading to the island was buried inside his storage room, which was better of called as a trash room. He couldn’t bring himself to step inside it.

Of course, at that time, he had no idea of the tragic consequences that his feckless and hasty consideration will bring upon.

“Finally, I’ve found you.”

An unknown voice abruptly sounded inside his room.
Metron reacted to that voice by looking upwards while still laying on his sofa, but he eventually revealed a confused expression after seeing the person standing there.

“!!!??! Y-Y-You are!!?”

Metron promptly raised his back from the sofa and placed his feet on the floor to stand up. However, before he was able to stand, an intense impact struck his head.


Along with the loud sound of the strike, Metron held his head with his hands as he felt an intense pain. A few tears started flowing from his eyes from the extreme anguish and he raised his head again to look at the person who was still standing with their fist clenched.

“I promised myself to strike you with this fist the moment we meet, so I did it without any further delay.”

Listening to the voice of that person who didn’t seem to feel guilty about what they did just now, Metron had finally recognized their identity.

“Kamiya, Yato……”

“Pleased to meet you, I guess, Annoying Kid.”


The moment after I stepped inside the magic circle, the scenery in front of me changed into jet black. I couldn’t willingly move my body. Whenever I tried to move, I felt like something was blocking me from moving.

Did I get into some sort of trap?
Remaining composed, I examined my current situation. Judging from the feeling of being cramped and the difficulty in breathing, I assumed that I was inside a narrow place. Rather, it wasn’t just difficult to breathe, I couldn’t breathe at all. I tried maintaining my coolness, but once I considered the possibility of suffocating, I started losing my patience.

This is bad! I need to leave this place! I hurriedly made an effort in attempt to get out from this cramped space. Shortly after, I got back the sense of my right hand. Looks like I succeeded in crawling it out.
I think I can make it at this rate. I added a little more effort and pushed myself up to finally escape the narrow space.


I took a deep breath after drawing away.
Few, haah. As I worked on settling my breathing, I looked around my surrounding to find out what was happening to me.

“What is this?”

I titled my head when I realized that I was standing on top of a mountain of objects. To be a bit more accurate, I’d describe those objects as junk.
Wooden toys, unknown stuff with an eccentric shape, goods which could be found in parties and banquets, not to mention, the expensive looking treasure boxes and many more other objects. All of them were disorderly thrown in this place, creating a mountain of junk. Coincidentally, a strange-shaped object entered my sight kicking me with an eerie feeling as if I’ve already seen it somewhere else.

“This is a magic tool, Desu.”

Meru appeased that feeling by giving me a short explanation. Hearing Meru’s voice, I placed my hand in my pocket and took out my phone. Turning on the screen, Meru’s quietly standing figure reflected inside it.

Earlier, I succeeded in my negotiations with her, making her agree in letting me use the magic circle. Meru, personally, wasn’t very supportive of my plan but she accepted only because she knew that she had no other measures to resist. She ended coming with me after judging that it would be better to ascertain her doubts by meeting Metron instead of watching the entire ruin getting destroyed. Thus, she agreed to let me use the magic circle with the condition of letting her enter my phone.

“Everything in this place is a magic tool, Desu.”
“Come to think of it, Lina had some similar tools in her place too.”

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

Listening to Meu’s short clarification, I remembered the magic tools in Lina’s apartment.
Yeah, everything in this place had an unusual shape. That’s how I discern magic tools. I looked around the place once again.

“So this is Metron’s place?”
“Naturally, it should be, Desu.”

It’s not that different from a normal house. Excluding the fact that I can’t see the walls and the roof, the floor didn’t have anything in of particular. If I had to point at something strange, I’d say that the interior design seemed a bit ancient.

Only allowed on

Finishing the inspection of the room, I started contemplating what to do next right before I noticed the door placed ahead of the junk mountain. It seemed that it was the only door leading outside the room. Making my decision, I climbed down the magic tools mountain and walked before the door.

Now what? Guess I will take a peek on the outside first.

With that intention, I opened the door. The place that was laying behind it was less disordered room. I recognized many things inside that room, including the voice that was coming from the sofa.

“Did something maybe happen~?”

A childish voice exuding innocence.
There was no way that I’d forget about it.
I was certain that it was Metron’s voice.

Found him!!

I was kicked with the urge to assault him right away, but was barely able to endure it while fixing my gaze on him. I will conceal my presence just in case something happens. With that thought in mind, I pictured myself lurking within my shadow.

“Skill【Presence Secrecy】obtained.”

This is perfect.
I instantly created a concealment skill and moved it to application by deliberately approaching Metron, but suddenly, I heard Meru’s voice.

“Did you find master, Desu?”

Surprised by the unexpected voice, I shuddered and leaped in my place before taking out my phone.

“Don’t suddenly talk to me. You frightened me for a second there.”
“My field of vision is blocked and I want to observe the situation as well, Desu.”

Ignoring my whisper, Meru complained.
Of course, your vision is blocked. You were inside my pocket, after all. Since she didn’t seem to be satisfied with her current position, I placed my phone in my breast-pocket to avoid any further trouble.

“Can you see now?”
“I can’t see clearly, but that is fine, Desu.”

So she can use the phone camera as her eyes, huh.
Resolving Meru’s dissatisfaction, I opened the door once again and slowly approached Metron who was still laying on his sofa. I gradually approached the sofa until his face entered into my sight.

“Finally, I’ve found you.”

Confirming that it was really him, I let out a thrilled, yet delighted voice. Metron who heard my voice turned his head in my direction while seeming slightly surprised, though eventually his face changed from slight surprise to a bewildered and astonished expression once our eyes met.

“!!!??! Y-Y-You are!!?”

Losing his words, Metron tried standing up but I used that chance to strike his head with my fist.
Tasting the pain of my hit, he covered his head as few tears emerged from his eyes.

“I promised myself to strike you with this fist the moment we meet, so I did it without any further delay.”

I fulfilled one of my goals for the time being and told him in a casual manner. Before long, the expression of surprise on his face changed into a glare as he spoke my name.

“Kamiya, Yato…”
“Pleased to meet you, I guess, Annoying Kid.”

Thus, at this very place, I met the ringleader behind all the hardship I went through, Metron, for the first time.


Girls meeting.

When Yato teleported to Metron’s place.

“So, what are we going to do now?”
“Let’s see. Wanna go play at the beach one more time?”
“That’s a nice idea.”
“Then how about this! Let’s stayover at Lina’s place after we’re done playing here.”
“Only us?”
“Yes. it’s nice to spend a night only between us, girls, every now and then.”
“I agree.”
“Only girls, huh… that doesn’t sound bad.”
“It’s decided then!”

“… Aren’t you feeling a fragment of concern about him?…” ⇐ Sara
