My vision opened up. Opened by pure white light.
The scene before me was devoid of that numerous disgusting insects crawling on the ground.
A sigh of relief escaped from my mouth. Then I looked up to find out where I ended up next.
Suddenly hearing my name being called, I exclaimed in surprise.
“Catch that thing!”
It was a familiar voice but…. The voice I was familiar with, it didn’t sound this cheerful. The juxtaposition confused me but despite that, I still caught the monster that was coming toward me.
This monster. This was a monster that looked like a crayfish. A bipedal crayfish monster. I caught its huge claw that was even bigger than my body and the monster stopped moving. By manipulating my magic power, I entangled the monster’s body with threads made from my magic power and sealed its movement.
A man who was standing beside me opened the mouth of a bag wide and presented it to me.
………Huh? That bag is obviously not big enough to fit this monster. Is it really going to be alright? But that bag is definitely being pointed at me. I just can’t disregard it.
“I can just put it in, right?”
The man replied cheerfully.
I see. I will trust you then.
I lifted the monster and carried it to the bag. I pushed the monster into the bag, persisting on despite the monster trying to struggle free from me. I took some damage because of the struggle but I still continued to push the monster into the bag.
Apparently, this bag must be a magic device because judging from the size of the bag, there was no way the monster could fit into it but somehow, the bag was able to take the monster in.
“There we go.”
Somehow, I was able to completely put that monster into the bag.
As soon as I finished with my deed, I could hear numerous cheers and then………
“Zero! You did it! Nice job!”
A husky-sounding voice was calling out to my name.
I turned my body around and saw a tall woman standing there. She had beautiful shoulder-length blonde hair along with beautiful blue eyes. I had already seen her face many times before. I wouldn’t mistake her for anyone else. But still, I couldn’t help but to be confused whether this woman before me….
This woman who was smiling cheerfully…
Seeing me staring at her dumbfoundedly, the woman tilted her head.
T/N: So instead of kuudere cold Alaine, we now have cheerful Alaine?
