main road, that even people who lost their way hardly wandered in.
The only visitors were merchants like Miaha.

In other words, it was the perfect place for unsociable people like Allen.

However, Miaha was not pleased with it.

“Demon Lord, sir, aren't you only 21 years old? As a human, you are at a young age.
If you don't live a more energetic life, you will soon dry up and become an old man.”

“That's none of your business.”

“Oh my, look at that wrinkle between your eyebrows.
It's no wonder the townspeople call you the 'Demon Lord'.”

It was only natural that the ill-mannered wizard living on the outskirts would become the talk of the town.

Allen heaved a heavy sigh.

“Simply just by living alone, how did I end up with such an unsettling reputation? …
That's the reason why children have been coming here lately to test their courage.”

“Oh dear, that must be troubling for you.”

“That's right.”

Allen nodded, his face covered in tiredness.

“There are many wild animals around here, and it is too dangerous for children to come alone.
Which is why I tried to warn them every time I see them…
but each time, they would only scream and run away.”

“…
Demon Lord, as a good-natured misanthropic, it is truly difficult to understand you.”

Miaha smiled bitterly.

He didn't want to get involved with people, but that didn't mean he could abandon them.
Allen was a man with such a complicated personality.

“Well, anyway, you'd better find some other hobbies or purpose in life! Well then, see you tomorrow!”

“That's why I said it's none of your business.”

Miaha waved as she ran.
In a blink of an eye, her figure had disappeared from sight.

“Well then, it's about time to eat…”

When he was about to return inside, one of the newspapers dropped.

Spread on the front page of the newspaper, the sensational headline read :

The villainous lady from the neighboring country has gone missing! 

Has she fled the country?!

Allen bent over to pick it up.

“…
Oh?”

Right in front of the mansion.

Hidden in the knee-length grass, he could see someone lying on the ground.
