The soldiers seemed to think it was just an exercise, and cheered when they hunted monsters and found materials.
[Gyaaah, stop it, stop it already!]
“Hahaha, this demon is yelling something!”
One of the knights laughed and stabbed a harpy with his sword as it fell after being shot by an arrow.
I sometimes fight them when I meet them in the forest, but it made me feel uncomfortable to see them being tormented in this way.
“…I don’t feel well, so I’m going to step back.”
“Oh, was that too much stimulation for you, little girl? Or maybe you were offended when your friends were beaten…oops, my bad.
Ha ha ha ha.”
At my words, the knight who was escorting me laughed like a fool.
Because I was subhuman, they associate me with monsters.
That might have been the common perception of humans, poisoned by Human Race Supremacy.
“That’s not good, Carol-sama.
We will take you to the rear.”
A few thin knights, who looked like civil servants, offered to escort me.
“Don’t you guys have to fight?”
“Our role is not to fight directly.
Come on, this way.”
They treated me as if I were a normal young lady, but unlike the simple escort knights earlier, their smiles were like masquerades and I couldn’t read their emotions.
A few minutes into our walk, they moved away from the battlefield and toward the back of the forest.
“That way is not behind them, is it?”
“Yes, we have a tent over here.
You don’t feel at ease in the company of people like the man who was speaking earlier, do you?”
Yes, that was true, but more importantly.
“Are they really going to attack Daemons? What if they are civilians?”
“That’s right… Even within the country, nobles and others who are unfamiliar with local affairs are saying such things, so they are sending out their troops for practice this time as well.”
The knight smiled as if troubled, and sighed grandly.
“…I guess it’s about time.”
The surrounding knights surrounded me and drew their swords the moment he muttered that.
“…What is the meaning of this?”
I asked, narrowing my eyes, and he smiled as he pointed the tip of his sword at me.
“You said it yourself, didn’t you? That they are civilians.
But all Daemons are an enemy of all of us.”
A common enemy created outside to unite the country.
It was a common but simple and effective measure.
The knight was just as narrow-minded as his appearance, but he had a solid sword.
And maybe he had even higher status than the knights at the front.
“You can scream in terror, can’t you? Or do subhumans not have delicate emotions like humans?”
I stared at him silently as he shrugged his shoulders in a theatrical gesture.
“Well, it doesn’t matter either way, but to answer your question at the end, to make Daemons enemies of humanity, Miss Carol, a subhuman, must betray humanity and cause damage to the troops, so that she will be killed here.
Well, if that were not the case, I would have asked you to drink poison that would have put you in a vegetative state, but the Prime Minister seems to have suffered damage because of the Daemons, and he wants me to kill you, a subhuman as well.“
The Prime Minister’s dog….
Apparently, the future has changed because I destroyed the Prime Minister’s smuggling ships and drug farms.
I was supposed to be poisoned, which would have saved my life to the point of paralysis, but the Prime Minister’s hatred of subhumans spurred him to order them to kill me instead.
Before the change, the future would have had no such spoilers….
Make the Daemon a complete enemy of humanity, take another Daemon territory, make me, Cam’s fiancée, the bad guy, ruin Cam’s reputation, and also make him despair.
But this time, the Prime Minister put his emotions first, even though the route he took before the change was probably less problematic, the fact that Cam would be devastated when I died did not change.
Overall, even if the future changed, the fate it followed was the same.
“Isn’t it time for you to go? I’d like to say that you don’t have to suffer… but my friends and I hate subhumans to the point of repugnance, so please show us the face of your suffering.”
If I died here, they would be right, and Human Race Supremacy might spread even to the commoners.
Even if I fought against the knights, the outcome might go according to their intentions.
“–Setup [Witch Dress]–“
Instantly, a woman dressed in crimson, her skirt embroidered with roses and thorns fluttered, gripped the black metal-reinforced gloves tightly, and with ten times the status of an average person, she struck the knight squarely in the face, and the man screamed in a strange voice as he flew ten meters away.
In the forest, which was stunned into silence by the sudden events, I quietly announced to the remaining knights of the Prime Minister while holding the Zanbatou Ridil in my right hand and the magic gun Break Revolver in my left.
“I will not be defeated by fate.”
