But there was one more problem other than how jumbled my head felt.
I was hit with so many divine attacks today that my body’s condition was reaching its limit.
The consciousness I had been clinging to gradually faded.


Mother’s bewildered voice called out through the dark.

“Hurry up, get back into my pocket…”


The feel of the soft bed greeted my back, and the sense of comfort created by the loose clothes told me to sleep more.
Loose clothes? Not my uniform?!


“You’ve finally come to your senses!”

I jumped up and grabbed Carmen’s shoulder with a shout.

“My clothes! Where are my clothes?!”

“P-Please calm down for a moment, Priest Marnak.”

I couldn’t dare relax because I couldn’t feel Mother’s hand in my pocket.

“Where are my belongings? Right now…”


Mother’s voice came from the basket under the bed.
I hurriedly stretched out my arm, picked the hand up from the basket, and hugged it.

“I got really scared that I had lost it.”

Carmen smiled.

“As expected, it’s something with a story.
Others said it wasn’t something the priest would carry around and wanted to throw away, but I took it and put it there.”


I bowed deeply to Carmen as Mother mentioned she was almost cremated along with the other corpses.

“Thank you so much.
I don’t know how to thank you enough.”

Carmen waved his hand as if I shouldn’t dare say such a thing.

“Thank you?! If it weren’t for the noble sacrifice of Priest Marnak, I would have died before we made it out of Kelton.”

As I calmed down a bit, I was able to slowly understand the situation around me.

“But where are we?”

“These are the barracks.
We’re still in Kelton.”


“How many days have I been asleep?”

“Ten full days have passed since Kelton’s disaster.”

Ten days? Well, judging by the hustle and bustle of people coming through the barracks, it seemed that Kelton’s restoration was underway.

“At first, I was very worried that you wouldn’t wake up again, but fortunately, the Goddess of Maintenance took care of you, and your wounds healed quickly.”

I licked my lips a few times, then slowly opened my mouth to ask.

“Are there any survivors?”

Carmen’s smile faded.

“Only you were alive inside the walls of Kelton.”

It was as relieving as it was heartbreaking.
If there were any living people, they would have witnessed the Giant of Corruption fighting the Incarnation, so it was right for me to eliminate as many witnesses as possible.
At the same time, even though I tried so hard, I was sad that I couldn’t save anyone.


At Mother’s cry, saying, “That’s for the best,” I squeezed her palm and looked at Carmen.


“Then who’s in Kelton now?”

Carmen spread out his hands and counted them off one by one.

“The lords of the nearest city have dispatched troops for the reconstruction, and the relatives of the lord Stren Plkor also sent who they could to help…”

A man with a cane opened the door and stepped inside at that moment.

“I just heard the news that you’ve woken up.”

The demon lord of Guise, who walked with the click of his prosthetic leg, smiled at me for a second while Carmen glanced back.

“If someone has been starving for ten days, it is probably the right thing to eat first.”

Carmen looked at me as if he had forgotten all about that.

“I guess I’m really out of my mind.
Priest Marnak seemed healthy, so I was mistaken.
I’ll get someone to bring you something to eat.”

I slowly pushed myself up and put on my uniform.

“I’ll go eat.
I’m a little curious about how Kelton looks right now.”

Carmen made eye contact with the demon lord, then smiled awkwardly at me.

“If you go out alone, it will be a little noisy.
Will you be okay?”

“Well, I’m fine with that.”

The busy noises of construction made by the workers wouldn’t bother me.

But the moment I left the barracks with Carmen, I could sense that the noise he was talking about was different than I expected.

“The Evil God’s Great Enemy!”

Shouts sounded from the streets.

“The Evil God’s Great Enemy, Priest Marnak, has awakened!”

“The Evil God’s Great Enemy said he was hungry! Go and prepare the most delicious dishes!”

“I told you that he would surely wake up!”

I asked Carmen.

“What the hell is this?”

Carmen replied with a broad smile.

“I put a little effort into spreading your prestige.”

“I mean…”

I tried to say something, but my words were swallowed up by the following cheers.


I was slightly dizzy from all the sound.
And, well, because I was the priest of an evil god.


I pressed my Mother, jokingly shouting, ‘Marnak, the Evil God’s Great Enemy!’ and turned back into the barracks.

“I’ll just eat inside.”

Carmen smiled and nodded, so pure and full of joy at the spread of my fame.

“I thought you would.”

I shook my head as I stepped back inside.
First the Demon Slayer, now I was the Evil God’s Great Enemy? It felt like I was only collecting some burdensome titles.
Without knowing how I felt, a powerful shout rattled the windows.

“Long live the Evil God’s Great Enemy!”
