ivot》 would be lost once you have gone over the fixed level, huh?」

「You’re right.
To meet with the Wolf King, you need to defeat the Red Wolf, Black Wolf, and the White Wolf, it seems.」

「What I can think of as of now is that, after going over a fixed level, you could still meet them, or fight an enhanced version of the Solo Named.
I am not strong in the brains department, so that’s all I could think of, though…」

「Either way, it seems that you wouldn’t be able to fight the Wolf King.
Or maybe there are other methods other than defeating the three Named monsters to do so.」

「Thou art right, it may be as you say.
Regarding Named, we have absolutely no idea about them.」

As the two of us were nodding and groaning, before us, two cups were softly presented.

Raising my head, it was a player in a maid uniform who smiled, gave me a head pat, and left.

「That’s Slew.
The round table’s eleventh, a maid RP player.
She is my helper, and she has the highest cooking skill in Round Table.」

「I see…..but why did she pet me?」

「She probably likes you.
That one is the type to admire things they like.」

“Yare yare.” Looking at A-chan who had a slightly contorted face, I thought that A-chan was probably really liked by that person.

Because she was admired to the point where she would wince upon remembering that admiration.

「Well, she is overall a capable person.
Because she is taciturn, there won’t be that many chances to talk, but please get along with her.」

「Yea, okay.
But still….it kinda feels like, including Slew-san, this is really just like a house.」

My image of a clan house was that there were a lot of various members and it would be bustling with activity.

In contrast to the heroic and bold feeling I got from their clan name 《Knights of the Round Table》, their clan house had an unimaginably different aura.
Instead, it had quite a calm atmosphere.

「Fufu, ’tis exactly like that.
Although you say it’s a clan house, this is, in the end, my house, ya know? And also, I’m just acting as what you would call the -clan leader-, but in reality everyone from the Round Table is in command.
There isn’t any real meaning for people to purposely come back here.」

「Is it like that? Hmmm, it isn’t very manga-esque.」

「If you go around to《Dragon Fang》, I think that you could see something similar to what you imagined.
Despite the size of the clan, we don’t have a base, that’s all.」

Hearing what A-chan said, I felt something from how she said she was something like a decoration.

I had remembered Touka-chan’s words.

「Hey, A-chan.
You…are the strongest in the Round Table, right?」

「Of course.」

A-chan, who heard my words, was totally unfazed.
She responded as if that was natural.

「Being the clan’s strongest and being an existence needed for the clan to run are different matters.」

Putting down the cup she had in her hand, her hand floated towards the bluish-silver sheath leaning beside her chair, touching the hilt of the sword.

At that instant, a sharp blade-like pressure spread throughout the clan house.

Seeing me reflexively put my hand on my metal club, she laughed happily.

「Fuahahaha! That’s a good reaction! Though, as long as everyone follows me, I don’t have any objection to being a leader.
This sword is my only worth.」

「I see.
So you’re that strong, huh, A-chan.」

Her words carried no lies.
Looking at her, I understood.

Moreover, she was a strong person that even Rin-chan had endorsed as「strong.」

You could basically look at her like a little girl, but feeling such pressure just from her placing her hand on her sword, I understood that her sword ability was a cut above the rest.

Even if you were sensitive about how good she was, if you were a player that loved swords, I could understand why you would admire her.

「VR sure is an interesting thing.
Just like Rinne and I, there are those who could freely dance in these virtual worlds, but there are also those who are tormented by the gap between the real world.
This world ruled by status is rather constraining, isn’t it?」

「N? I haven’t felt really constrained, though….」

「Fufufu, having gotten to that level, you still embrace such an impression.
That is enough to tell that it’s actually constraining…….You will someday understand it.
The freedom of the virtual world.」

Even though you could move as much as you wanted in comparison to the real world.
Rather, I felt that this world was more stress-free.

Smiling at me who thought this way and was tilting my head, A-chan stopped talking about that.

「Now then, since tea is also here, until Touka-jou comes, we shall take our time and listen to yer story.」

「Okay, I wonder what I should talk about….」

「Slew! get us some tea snacks!」

There wasn’t any reply to A-chan’s calls.
However, a few seconds after being called, Slew came with a tray of snacks.

「Ah, this cake is delicious.
Now that I think about it, even I haven’t had anything other than potion…..」 (9: you ate that steam bun)

「What a waste.
In this world, there are many interesting foods, ya know? For example-….」

Saying that, A-chan tampered with her menu card, and what she showed me were her (seemingly) precious gourmet images.

It seemed that A-chan was rather a fan of various delicacies.
The foods she introduced me to were mostly what you could call「exotic foods.」

「For some reason no one really likes to try them, ya kno~,」 saying something like that while we made a promise to go out to eat somewhere together, we enjoyed the tea snacks.
