Izayoi left the main house where Black Rabbit brought them for their rest, and came to the alternate house where the community children resides, placing his arms around his chest like a monster, standing still.
"Hey~...... If you guys don't make up your mind, I will not be able to go bathe."
Sssss..... The wind blows across the trees. Although there seems to be no one else present, Izayoi still looks irritated, and murmurs to himself as if he is talking to someone:
"You want to do it here? Or not? If you really want to fight then its about time you make up your mind and come?"
Sssss.... Once again, there is only the sound of the wind blowing across the trees. There still don't seem like anyone is hiding here.
Izayoi simply picks up a free rocks, and gently throws them at the dark area behind the trees.
Kaboom! An outrageous explosion came from what cannot be imagined from his gentle throw, the trees around were blasted away, and human-like shadows were sent into the sky, the glass in the alternate house shook for quite a while.
Ren who did not know what happened hurriedly rushed out from the alternate house and asked Izayoi:
"There seems to be intruders? I think it is people from that "Fores Garo"?"
Black figures and rubble fell from the sky to the ground.
People who maintained consciousness slowly stood up, and looked at Izayoi and Ren.
"W......What is this insane strength......! So the rumors about defeating a snake deity is true!"
"Yeah...... In this case, he might win in the game against that tiger......!"
There is no ill intent from the eyes of the invaders. Perhaps noticing this, Izayoi walks towards the invaders, and talks to them:
"Oh? What's this, you guys ain't human?"
The invaders all have a certain part that is completely different from a human.
Some had dog years, others had long body hair and sharp claws, and some had eyes like an insect.
Izayoi looks very interested, and stares at them.
"We are based off as humans, and bears "animal" gifts. But as our gift level is too low, so we can only change into this incomplete form."
"Oh......then, you guys wanna say something, thats why you didnt fight right? Fine, say it!"
Izayoi talks to them with a smile, yet all the invaders kept silent gloomily.
They shared glances, and lowers their head as though they made up their mind.
"We shamefully beg you! Can you please destroy our...... No, the Maou's community, "Fores Garo"!"
"I don't want to."
Izayoi refuses bluntly this request that took everything out of them. The invaders were silent for a moment, and stood there motionless, and Ren who was observing things at the side was also so shocked he left his mouth open.
Izayoi changes to a bored expression, and turns his back towards the invaders.
"Anyway you guys probably have hostages retained by that tiger right? I bet you are under orders again this time, to grab the kids?"
"Ah...... yes. We had no idea you knew this much, we sure have been rude...... As he has hostages, we really can't disobey him."
"Oh, about those hostages, they no longer exist in this world. Done! Topic over!"
Ren hurriedly gets between the two parties, yet Izayoi maintains a cold tone even towards Ren.
"What is there to hide? Anyway when you win the game tomorrow, the news will spread?"
"E......even so you should think about how to say it!"
"Hmph! You expect me to be kind to them! You really know how to joke, Mr. Shorty, think about it. Who kidnapped the hostages that were killed? Ain't it this bunch of guys!"
Ren was shocked, and turned back to look at the invaders. If they were kidnapping new hostages to save the hostages...... Then even if someone say the hostages are half killed by them, it isn't wrong either.
"Taking care of the bad guys sounds cool, but I am not that kind to help their accomplices!"
"S......so......the hostages are really......"
"......Yes, he said he kills the hostages on the day he caught them."
"How can that......!"
All the invaders sorrowfully looks down. They were doing all kinds of dirty work for the hostages, to know that the hostages were actually all dead, the impact is probably unbearable.
Izayoi looks at the despaired men, and suddenly had a thought in mind.
"Evil villains under a Maou...... Maybe this can be used?"
He suddenly turns, showing a smile like a kid who thought of a prank, and pats on the invader's shoulder.
"I say, do you guys hate "Fores Garo" and that tiger? Do you want to teach them a lesson?"
"Of......Of course! Because of that guy, we were put into such misery......!"
"I see I see, but you do not have the power to defeat him?"
The men unwillingly bit their lips hard.
"That......That guy is considered a subordinate of Maou, and his gift level is way beyond us. There is no way for us to win even if we challenge him to a game! No, even if we win, if we offended the Maou that way......"
"What if there is a community that exists to defeat that "Maou"?"
Huh? Everyone raised their heads. Izayoi holds Ren's shoulders and brings him to his side.
"This Ren here said, he will establish a community that has defeating Maous as its goal."
All the invaders, including Ren, were shocked. This goal seems very similar to the community's main goals, yet entirely different. Ren's goal was to protect this community, and defeat the Maou that took their flag away.
Yet Izayoi's explanation earlier sounds like a community that acts with all Maous as their targets.
This never-done-before community made the invaders puzzled and asks again:
"A community that sets defeating Maous as its goal.....? This...... This is......"
"Just as you have just heard. Including the Maou and its subordinates, we will protect all communities from Maou's harm. Then the protected communities must all advertise for us: "No forced sales, deals or Maou related personals. Any queries, please look for Ren.""
What the hell are you saying! Ren wants to say that, but Izayoi stuffed his mouth, he seems very serious.
Izayoi stood up with force, and opens his arms as if resisting a strong gale.
"We are very sorry about the hostages. But you can rest at ease, tomorrow Ren will lead his members to help you take revenge! You do not have to worry about the future either! Because our Ren will stand up to defeat "Maou"s!"
Izayoi declares with an exaggerated tone, yet this represents hope to the invaders' eyes.
Ren whos grabbed by Izayoi tries hard to struggle, but is held down by Izayoi's abnormal strength, unable to say a word.
"Very well then! Go back to your communities! Remember to advertise for your allied communities! Tell them our Ren will defeat "Maou"s!"
"U......Understood! Please do your best tomorrow! Mr Ren!"
Ren's cries did not reach them, the invaders ran away in the blink of an eye.
After Izayoi let go, Ren lost himself, and kneels onto the floor.
Ren drags Izayoi to the meeting room at the top of the headquarters, and finally cannot hold it and roars:
"What the hell are you thinking!"
"Just changing "Defeat Maou" to "Defeat Maou and related parties"? "If troubled, please contact Ren"------ I think we should use this as our slogan?"
"This is not funny and is not something you should be joking about! You should have understood Maou's strength looking at the entrance of this community!"
"Of course. Won't it be the best thing to fight someone with such power in a game?"
Izayoi sits down on a chair of this meeting room, after he leans himself on the back of the chair, did he express his desires to fight with a Maou. Ren was at a loss of words, but then questions Izayoi's actions once again.
"In......interesting? So Izayoi-san intends to, for your own entertainment, push this community to its end?"
Ren's tone is dead serious, as Izayoi's words isn't something that you can just ignore.
If......this man intends to use this community for his own enjoyment, then no matter how strong he may be, we must not let him join. Instead, he must discuss the matter with Black Rabbit and chase him out as soon as possible.
