omeone I met for the first time knowing about me, that itself was not unusual.
It was just that, for something on this level to have their eyes on me was something I hadn’t predicted.

「Your willpower is a pass, your wit has a perfect score.
Your power is still inexperienced…..oh well.
Those eyes of yours.
You really are strong in enduring, or rather your trigger has just not been pulled yet.
Although, it looks like you are not conscious about it… has been a while since I have seen a child holding this deep, deep darkness.
Fufu, that itself is the highest of high talent to kijin, you know?」

「Just what…are you saying…?」

「You will someday know it.
You are a kijin, after all.
If you awaken that slumbering emotion, I shall come and meet you again.」

As the girl said that, putting a little bit of the rouge on her own lips on her fingertip, after sliding that finger on my cheeks, she turned away.


To the girl who said such suggestive words, as she was about to leave, I unintentionally called out to her.

「What is…your name?」

Though she didn’t have any obligation to answer me.

Leaving with such words, while the girl gazed into my eyes with her crimson ones, she sang her name as if she was enjoying it.

I shall permit you to call me that.」

At that familiar name, I reflexively held my breath.

Melty.《Heavenly Eye》 Melty.

That was the name of the hero Kohaku had told me about.

It was obvious why she was familiar.
After all, she looked the same as Melty from Cloclo.

Why right here? Why was such a big shot here?

「Let us meet again.
Oh young, young kijin-san.」

Leaving me behind with only those words, the phantom-like girl had completely disappeared.
What was left was…just me, who was standing still, with no idea what had just happened, and Touka-chan who looked confused.

「Nee-sama, what are you talking about?」


After those few seconds of contact and meeting a monster way beyond imagination, what came from Touka-chan was a curious question.

「What is-…」

「I saw Nee-sama talking to an empty space, you know?」


I didn’t know what Touka-chan was talking about.

Just now, if what that person had said was the truth, I had been talking with Melty the 《Heavenly Eye》…..I should’ve been.

Since Touka-chan was right next to me, she should’ve been looking around where I was too, so she should’ve seen Melty’s figure.
Or maybe, if she hadn’t seen through that illusion-like appearance, she should have at least seen a light-brown haired girl….

「Hey, those who are watching, did you see it?」



『I thought you just suddenly started doing a play』

『Was there something?』



Did I see a daydream? Inside a game?

Rather, if they have seen me in such a situation without the other, then it might have looked like quite realistic acting.

「Fu, kukuku, ahahahahahahaha.」

Thinking so, I laughed for a bit and exhaled out the tension in my body.

「It’s nothing.
I was just talking to some ghost.」

「? I…see..?」

Tricking the system.
I didn’t really understand how deep this level of story was, but really, these superior people sure did all sorts of things.

Melty Bloodheart.
The strongest vampire and the hero of mankind.

My impression from that confrontation was that she was not someone who was purely on the good side.
Though, that could also be said of Kohaku.

“If I’m fine then it’s all good.” Melty felt like quite a mischievous person, but that might also be my own misunderstanding.

If I were to give my full impressions, they were that I didn’t know.
Rather, it wasn’t like something that could be understood like that.

「Now, let’s sightsee.
I wonder if the smith in Fias also sells metal clubs?」

「Suku-neesama sure likes metal clubs.」

「They’re easy to use, after all.」

Just arriving here I had already gotten worn out, but in the first place, we had defeated the boss and walked all the way here, so it was only natural.

Let’s change the mood and do some sightseeing.
Thinking that, suddenly I saw myself reflected in the glass of a window, and for some reason, I was really relieved.

After all, on my cheeks, I could see a little trace of rouge.

「So, it wasn’t a dream….」

I believed that someday, we would meet for sure.

However, the me at that point didn’t know that it would be sooner than I thought.
