T/N: Sorry for the late update. I will need to be hospitalized soon so I don’t think I can keep up with the constant update. I will still translate this novel since each chapter is pretty short but I can’t promise constant update. I guess I will just update whenever I can?
After saying goodbye to the ladies at the storefront, the three of us started walking back to Margo’s store. Margo and Juno then gave me a thumbs up.
I see. The two of them must’ve invited me to that pub for my sake.
I thanked the two of them because if not for them, I wouldn’t be able to meet with Yurina-san. If I was on my own, there was no way I’d go to that kind of place.
All of a sudden, Ash jumped to me.
Ah, there, there. Ash is really the cutest thing in the world.
I held Ash in my arms and snuggled my face into his fluffy fur. I was already feeling good because I was tipsy from drinking but now when I held Ash, the cutest thing in the world, I was feeling even better.
Hm….? Wait? Why is Ash here?
Not to mention, at the same time, I started sweating with this uncomfortable feeling nagging at the back of my mind. When I turned my gaze to the street, I saw two demons. They were being ominously quiet.
It was Sarasa and Elsa.
Now then Ash, let’s go home.
However, I wasn’t allowed to go home.
When I made gestures to convey I wanted to go home, Sarasa glared at me. That single glare alone was enough to nail me shut on the ground. Her stare was like a basilisk’s stare.
Now that I think of it, I did leave Ash with Sarasa before I went to the pub. She must’ve found out because of that…. I was too careless…
After that, Margo, Juno and I… The three of us were dragged by hand to Margo’s store by Demon Sergeant Sarasa and Executioner Elsa.
The three of us were kneeling in seiza style in front of Demon Sergeant Sarasa and Executioner Elsa.
Three grown men kneeling in seiza…. This is the saddest thing I’ve ever heard.
Ash also looked sad. He was whining pitifully.
Demon Sergeant Sarasa, who had been quiet during our journey here, shifted her attention to me.
Just from the tone alone, I could feel she was strongly questioning me….. They must be asking for my testimony as the third party here. But, I decided to exercise my rights to remain silent. I shook my head left and right vigorously.
There’s no way I’m going to sell out my own friend.
After that, Margo and Juno, they threw out every last ounce of pride and shame they had and kept on apologizing while kneeling in seiza style with their head rubbing the floor. Seeing this, the expression on Demon Sergeant Sarasa and Executioner Elsa softened a little.
However, the relief was short-lived because of what occurred next.
Ash’s eyes turned mischievous, just like a kid that found a new interesting toy. He continued tugging a piece of string hanging out from Margo’s coat and then he brought that unknown object to Demon Sergeant Sarasa.
I stared at that unknown object for a while before I finally realized the true identity of that unknown object.
That damned old man!!
At that moment, it felt like the whole world was frozen solid.
That unknown object was a “ woman’s upper underwear”. No, even if I changed the term of that object in a more acceptable way, it still wouldn’t give Margo even a micron of forgiveness.
Though he might be forgiven for a little bit if he just straight up apologized right here and there.
That thing was a “bra”.
Picking up that evidence from Ash, Demon Sergeant Sarasa treated that thing like she was handling a piece of garbage. She then gave off her best smile but her smile looked very, very strained.
It was plain to see that Demon Sergeant Sarasa was furious. Honestly speaking, she looked really scary.
Beautiful women look really scary when they’re angry.
Demon Sergeant Sarasa stroked Ash’s head and then picked him up. She then handed Ash over to me and gestured for me to go home. Margo was rapidly turning blue and Juno also became pale under the suspicious gaze of Executioner Elsa.
It seemed there was nothing else I could do here. I could only apologize to Demon Sergeant Sarasa and Executioner Elsa along with those two men.
While chanting a prayer for the safety of those two men, I left Margo’s store. On the other side, Ash was wagging his tail left and right happily.
T/N: Ash definitely knows what he’s doing. He’s a really good tracking dog~
