as the only one who knew where an energy source for Merl-san’s spaceship might be located.
It would be difficult for me and Yuti to find it in the other world by ourselves.

Then, Merl-san, who had been quietly watching our exchange, raised her hand.

(Um, I know I shouldn’t be using it too much, but since Ouma-san is guiding us to the location where the energy source is… if your identity is discovered on Earth, I can use my terminal to erase all records of you from Earth.)

“…The more I hear about it, the more amazing it sounds.”

Merl-san’s own existence, including everyone’s memories and electronic records, were erased just by operating the terminal on her arm.

“But if Merl-san is willing to go that far, then we can go out with Ouma-san more safely.”

“Oh, that’s great! Then let’s go immediately──.”

“Ah! But we can’t go right now, you know? Tomorrow is the first day of school, so I have to prepare for it… Besides, Ouma-san would like to go out in the morning, wouldn’t he?”

That’s also true.”

I’ve decided to go out with Ouma-san, but first I have to prepare dinner.
Then Ouma-san wanted to eat curry, so I decided to go shopping for the ingredients.

At this time, Merl-san expressed interest about Earth, so she decided to take a walk around outside before Ouma-san.

…Well, Ouma-san complained at the time, but it was indeed difficult to take Ouma-san with us to the supermarket, so I asked him to stay at home once more.




“H-hey, look…”

“What is it, what is it?”

“What happened? Huh…”


(Hmm? What is it?)

When I thought about it, I realized that Merl-san was dressed in a way that didn’t look like an Earthling, and her hair was all shiny.
Especially now that it was nighttime, the shine of her hair stood out even more, drawing the gaze of many people on the street.

I wonder if it’s a good thing that I brought her along…? She definitely stood out, and… her clothes look like full-body tights, so I think it’s pretty dangerous.

However, Merl-san herself didn’t seem to be particularly concerned about the stares from the people around her and was totally unaffected.

“Um, are you okay? You’re standing out…”

(I wonder what makes me stand out?)

“Eh? Um… I mean, the way your hair is shining…?”

(Huh… It’s a very common phenomenon on the planet Amel… You’re right; Earthlings don’t glow.
Why is that?)

“Why, you say?”

I never thought I’d be asked that! W-why aren’t we glowing…?

Since the question was asked so seriously, I couldn’t help but think seriously, but I couldn’t come up with an answer.
Space is amazing.

As we went towards the supermarket, attracting the attention of the people around us, I was suddenly approached by a voice.

“Oh my? Yuuya-san?”

“Eh? Ah, Kaori!”

And then I met Kaori, who was probably on her way back from shopping.
But unlike before, Kaori was surrounded by a group of women who had some kind of mysterious presence.

“Um, who are these people around you?”

“Oh… these are the guards that my father prepared for me.”

“Guards? Is there something that happened?”

When I asked her that, Kaori looked gloomy for a moment and then immediately smiled vaguely.

“N-no, not particularly… But my father has been experiencing some disturbances lately, so he assigned them as my guards.”

“I-I see…?”

If you ask me, the Earth has also been dangerous… recently? Well, because of me, aliens have been visiting the Earth, so it was indeed a mess.
I’m really sorry for everyone on Earth.

Besides, for rich people like Kaori, there might be dangers lurking in their daily lives that I didn’t understand.
There would be threats, kidnappings, ransom demands, and so on… That’s just to be expected.
This is not a drama, though.

The strength of a person can not be known without using my [Identification] skill, but the women who were assigned as Kaori’s bodyguards seem to have… a strong presence.

Then Kaori approached me a little confusedly.

“Then, um… who’s that woman?”

“Ah… this is Merl-san.”

“Merl… um, she’s not from this world, is she? Is she from the other world?”

Kaori sensed something and asked me that in a low voice, but I answered with a wry smile.

“That’s… She’s neither from Earth nor from the other world; she’s an alien.”


Kaori rolled her eyes and stared at Merl-san as if she hadn’t expected that answer.

“S-she’s indeed dressed in a somewhat sci-fi design… B-but, is she really an alien?”

To be honest, I don’t really believe it yet either… but apparently, she is.”

Kaori was taken aback by my explanation.

Then, Merl-san, who had been looking around while I was talking to Kaori, tilted her head and spoke to me.

(Why don’t you finish your shopping early? I think your family is waiting for you…)

“Ah! That’s right.
See you later, Kaori!”

“Eh? Y-yes…”

After saying goodbye to Kaori, I hurriedly headed to the supermarket.

“…Yuuya-san, your circle of acquaintances has expanded to the universe…”

Kaori, who was watching us from behind, muttered a few words, but they did not reach my ears.

I think it’s time for you to go back.
There’s also the matter of the threatening letter…”

“…Yes, that’s right.
Now that I’ve done my business, let’s go home. Sigh… I hope Kasumi is okay too…”




(! T-this is… so delicious!)

“T-that’s good to hear.”

Even if I don’t understand a word of what you just said, I understand.
Yuuya’s cooking is delicious.”

“Good grief.
The food in this world is really exciting.
Refill, please!”

“Yes, yes.”

As I prepared a refill of curry for Ouma-san, I reflected on today’s events.

The day after tomorrow is the day I’m going to go to the other world, so the question came up as to what to do with Merl-san from today.
Originally, she could have stayed in the spaceship she came in, but the Dragonia’s attack had disabled the engines, so she had to stay in my house until she returned to her planet.

Fortunately, my house was big enough for me alone, and I have plenty of room, so it’s not a problem.

I wondered if there were any differences between Merl-san and the people of Earth in terms of eating and sleeping, but it seemed that she could eat the same meals as everyone else and had the habit of sleeping on a futon.

Well, it seemed that the futons were not the same as the beds and mattresses that she was used to, but with the drop item, the [Paradise Futon], anyone can get a great night’s sleep, so there’s no problem.

So with that being said, they were still eating the curry I made for them, and Merl-san was bringing the curry to her mouth with a twinkle in her eyes.

(I’ve never eaten anything as delicious as this before.
Earth… may be a remote planet, but it’s really a wonderful place.)

“Haha… Um, what kind of food do you usually eat, Merl-san?”

(Me? That’s right… Well, if I were to compare it to what we eat on our planet, I’d say it’s more like a block of nutritional food or supplement.)

“Eh… is that really what you’re eating?”

Despite the taste, they provide all the necessary nutrients and calories.)

What a disappointment; I was kind of interested in space cuisine.

However, as I could somehow imagine from the tight-fitting tights like the ones worn by Merl-san and the Dragonia aliens, the more science and technology advances, the more everything would change into a more efficient form.

As a result, cooking became just a way to prepare nutrients…

“Let’s see… There’s still plenty of curry to go around, so don’t be hesitant to eat it.”


Just like I thought when I met Ouma-san, Japanese food companies are truly amazing.
That’s what I thought.
