“You are taking care of the Demon King’s children!?”

I quickly blocked the mouth of the shouting want-to-be Sage, Aura.

“Are you a fool?”

We changed the places to a café.
Was the first thing the girl asked. I understand her feelings, so I kept silent without talking back. Her gaze was mixed with various emotions when she looked at the twins sitting on both of my sides.

“Moreover, what was that? Did the Demon King really die of an illness?”

We are speaking in low voices, minding our surroundings.

“It’s true.”
“Yuuya-san, have you verify the Demon King’s remains properly? Things like his pulse and heartbeat.”
“…… Does a Demon King have a pulse or heartbeat to begin with?”

I did not verify. In a daze from the Demon King who completely stopped moving, I took the twins’ hands and left the Demon King’s castle.

“…… That means you have not checked it, no?”
“I did not.”
“What if he was alive?”
“Eh.”
“If, he is still living?”

I was startled by what Aura pointed out. I haven’t even thought about it. I have not doubted the Demon King’s illness.

“Having the children pushed onto you, not defeating the Demon King, being deceived, what if all that was just so he could escape?”
“No, but…… after that, I was assaulted by Pochi and Sivilla who wanted to snatch the kids from me. The Demon King’s death from illness is certain, I think……”

Aura’s gaze gradually fell below the freezing point.

“Yuuya-san.”
“Yes.”
“You are too softhearted.”

Letting out a big sigh, Aura turned her gaze towards the children.

“You will be targeted by monsters if you keep protecting these children and if you make a slip-up, even humans will chase after you, are you aware of that!?”
“Ah, I am prepared for that.”

I quickly declared. This is what I have been thinking all the time since taking the children’s hands. Even if I am to be chased, I will look after the twins.

“It can’t be helped, right? I couldn’t leave these children behind. They are good children, you know? To the extent you wouldn’t believe they are the Demon King’s children.”
“They are though. They are monsters, you know?”
“Yeah. But they help me out, they are very good children, you know?”

Their horns are hidden under the hats, but both Iric and Ilya smiled delightfully when I patted their heads anyway.

Seeing the Demon King’s children’s innocent smiles, Aura pinned her glabella.

“…… Too softhearted……”

Letting out a low voice, Aura stood up from her seat.

“I understand.”
“Eh?”
“Yuuya-san, where are you heading now?”
“Eh? Ahh…… to the Capital. First, I’d like to report regarding the Demon King’s death and then convert the treasures to cash.”
“All right.”

As if blocking my next words, Aura smiled at the twins.

“Let’s get along from now on, twins.”
“Ha?”
“I can’t let the softhearted Yuuya-san become the prey to various people. Although he’s like that, he’s still a hero, after all!”
“Like that……?”

I don’t understand what she’s trying to say, but I’m a bit shocked to be treated “like that”.

“That being the case, I will tag along.”
“Ha? …… Ehhh!?”

Not minding my bewilderment, the girl who wants to become a Sage introduced herself to the twins.

“I am Aura. Let’s get along, okay?”
“…… I am Ilya. But, I do not want to get along with you.”
“Iric. I don’t wanna get along with you, though~”
“My, how honest. But, I will be tagging along, alright?”

Seeing the smiling girl and the twins, Yuuya somehow understood that his opinion was left out.
