““““““……””””””

The unexpected answer silenced the courtroom. 

Fire Half-God, Ifrit…? 

I haven’t seen anything like that anywhere outside of picture books.
Isn’t that a mythological being? 

“It is one of the races that were said to have existed in the mythological era before humans resided in this world.
A mythological being that was said to have fallen in those ancient times.
It has come back to live in the modern world!” (Uther)

Uther was explaining with excitement. 

He seems to be having fun. 

This person loves rare magic creatures after all. 

“B-But if she is an Ifrit, where did she come from? Suddenly appearing in the dungeon is not a good explanation! In the first place, it is the irrefutable truth that she destroyed the Zenith Tower.
It is not something that can be forgi—” 

“I told you to calm down, right?” (Uther)

Principal Uther stopped the words of the jury member from the Sacred Union. 

“Let’s go one by one.
First, where did Sumire-kun come from?” (Uther)

The courtroom went silent and waited for the words of the Principal. 

“The hint is in the words that Sumire-kun said just now.” (Uther)

“My words…?” (Sumire)

The girl muttered in wonder. 

“She said just now that she came from ‘Tokyo, Japan’.
But unfortunately, there’s no country or city with those names in this world!” (Uther)

“N-No way!” (Sumire)

The girl raised her voice in distress.

It seems she thought we were accusing her of lying. 

“Wait.
I said ‘this world’.
In other words, the world Sumire-kun came from actually had the places called Japan and Tokyo.” (Uther)

“…What does that mean?” 

“Could it be…” 

“…No way!” 

Not only the jury, but even the audience was growing noisy. 

I see…so that’s what it is. 

“Uhm…what does it mean?” (Sumire)

The girl asked me in a whisper.

It would be better for me to not answer, right? 

I glanced at Principal Uther and he grinned at me.

“Sumire-kun, welcome to the Lykeion Magic Academy.
We shall welcome a parallel world reincarnator!” 

“……Eh?” (Sumire)

The girl opened her mouth wide in shock. 

Looks like the girl I found was a rare stray from a parallel world. 

Chapter 6: Eugene meets an otherworlder

A parallel world reincarnator. 

That’s the general term we have given to the people that come from a different world. 

Their traits are that, when they come to this world, the Gods will often give them excessive blessings or they will reincarnate as special races.

This is my first time meeting one, and it will mostly be the first time for the people in the courtroom too.

“Fufufu, it has been a while since we have had a guest from a parallel world.
I am looking forward to what you have to say.” (Uther)

Looks like it is not the first time for Principal Uther. 

Well, I don’t know how old he is, but he has apparently been the academy principal for more than 200 years. 

I can’t even imagine how much information he has. 

“Please wait! The first one to find her was an explorer from the Blue Waters Federation! Doesn’t her ownership fall onto us?!” 

The Federation gets agitated here. 

Didn’t you say just before that you would turn her into a guinea pig? 

The girl called Sumire hid behind me as if uneasy. 

“Hmmm, by the first ones who found her, do you mean the men that were about to assault Sumire-kun? Or maybe the ones who shot arrows at her? It is certainly true that they seemed like explorers from the Blue Waters Federation, but would you really call that ‘found’?” (Uther)

“T-That’s…” 

“Also, if you are going to be taking her in, you would need to pay for the damages that were caused by the fire on the 5th floor… How much was it?” (Uther)

Principal Uther asked the lady at his side who seemed to be his secretary. 

“It is only a rough estimate right now, but it is approximately 5 billion G.” 

“5 b-billion?!” 

“We are having High Tier and up mages in the dungeon city all working on the restoration.
Paying them that much of a reward in total would be the most reasonable thing to do.” 

“So?” (Uther)

“……We won’t.” 

The person from the Federation groaned. 

“King Uther, what will you do about the sin of destroying the dungeon though?! The sin of destroying the construction of the Holy Gods is not light!”

The next one to complain was the jury member from the Sacred Union. 

“Have you forgotten? ‘Visitors of other worlds must be protected’, is the teaching of none other than the Holy Gods though?” (Uther)

“I-I know that, but…” 

“She is not an evil demon which you were worried about.
She is the reincarnation of an ancient resident, an Ifrit.
Moreover, she just arrived in this world and lacks the knowledge, so she ended up causing an unfortunate incident.
Fortunately, there’s no deaths within the explorers.
Wouldn’t showing an open heart here match the teachings of the Holy Gods?” (Uther)

“…Understood.” 

The person from the Sacred Union has also withdrawn.

“……No…deaths?” (Sumire)

Sumire-san muttered. 

“Is something the matter?” (Eugene)

“N-No, it is nothing.” (Sumire)

She shook her head to the sides when I asked.

Is something bothering her?

“Your Majesty, Eugene Santafield is from the Empire.
If Eugene was the one who brought her back, doesn’t the duty to shelter her fall into the hands of the Empire?” 

The last one to speak was the teacher from the academy that was silent the whole time and comes from the Empire. 

—The residents of the Empire will always have in their heart to act in ways that will make the Empire prosper. 

The background of the teacher has a quote like that If I remember correctly. 

He didn’t seem to have much interest at first, but it looks like he couldn’t let her be after knowing that she is an otherworlder and an Ifrit. 

Hearing this, the Principal brushed his beard as if thinking of something.

“You do have a point.
Then, let’s have Eugene from the Empire be designated as the guardian of Sumire-kun.
After that, she herself can decide what to do.
How about that?” (Uther)

“No objections.” 

The teacher didn’t hang onto it and agreed.

In the dungeon city, King Uther’s words are absolute. 

There’s no people who would go against him. 

…Me, a guardian? 

Her guardian? 

I looked at my side, and the reincarnator Sumire was also looking at me. 

We stared at each other without noticing. 

Her big eyes were looking at me uneasy. 

“And so, Eugene, it is up to you now.
Don’t worry.
If you are troubled by anything, come consult with me.
Of course, I will provide a satisfactory allowance!” 

“O-Okay…” (Eugene)

I nodded at the words of the Principal. 

This is progressing further and further. 

I once again directed my gaze at the girl by my side. 

My heart skipped a beat. 

I didn’t notice until now because of how hectic everything has been, but she is incredibly beautiful. 

Glossy pale yellow hair, big eyes, and pink lips. 

The skin that can be peeked at from the openings of the robe were white like silk. 

I felt this the first time I met her in the dungeon, but…

(She really is one pretty girl…) (Eugene)

Is it because she is a parallel world reincarnator? Because she is a special race like an Ifrit? Or maybe because she herself is special? 

No, don’t think unnecessary things. 

Let’s face her properly first. 

“Nice to meet you, my name is Eugene Santafield.” (Eugene)

“I am…Sumire.
Nice to meet you, too.” (Sumire)

Sumire nervously held the hand I offered to her. 

And in this way, one more job was added onto me in the form of being the guardian of the reincarnator and Ifrit, Sumire. 

◇◇

“And so, because you were so busy taking care of the girl that came from a parallel world, you were late in coming to my place?” 

The Demon Lord Erinyes was glaring straight at me.

Eri was sprawled slovenly on the bed with really suggestive underwear. 

It is poison for the eyes. 

I answered her while trying to not look too much over there.

“Sorry about that.
This week has really been packed.” (Eugene)

I put both hands together and lowered my head at Eri. 

“Hmm, I see.
Looking after a girl, huh.” (Eri)

“You seem to want to say something there…” (Eugene)

“Have you put a hand on her?” (Eri)

She said something outrageous.

“As if!” (Eugene)

“Hooh~, is that true?” (Eri)

Saying this, Eri moved her face close to my neck.

“I smell the scent of another woman from you, Eugene.
It seems like you were sticking pretty close to each other.” (Eri)

“…I am her guardian after all.” (Eugene)

“Spit it out! The truth is that you have already done it with her, right?!” (Eri)

“As I said, I haven’t done anything!” (Eugene)

I feel as if I am being questioned for infidelity. 

I am not the boyfriend of Eri, and I haven’t done anything to Sumire. 

I sighed and continued answering the questions of Eri. 

The Demon Lord Eri of that day was really persistent. 

I vowed to not talk about Sumire to Eri in the future.
