“Good morning Shiho… What happened, you look like you are in a good mood?”
When I woke up in the morning, I was curious about why Shiho was smiling more than normal.
When she heard my voice, she toward me while smiling.
“Good morning Kazama, look at this!”
I look at her phone that she passed to me.
With a glance at the screen – I understood.
“Oh, it is about me?”
“Yes! Everyone is saying that you are incredible, also look at the tags.”
“What is this… why are they all tagged Pandora?”
A lot of the posts have “# Pandora” commented with them.
“It’s about Kazama, some people are calling you that.”
“It is referring to Pandora’s box, you are the hope that inside the box with all the despair and misfortune.”
“It’s not a bad name.”
I sat on the sofa and turned on the TV with the remote control.
A morning TV show, a commentator is standing up.
“It is a rogue person who is being labelled a messenger of justice!” TLN-I don’t get how recording a couple live streams count as going rogue…
“That’s right. Because Japan has a legal system, it stupid for anyone other than the police and court to judge anyone.”
“That’s right. To affirm, this Shinji is just a self-centred criminal who thinks they are a hero!”
“It’s terrible, is not it?”
Shiho who brought my breakfast on a tray said angrily.
“They are saying Kazama is a bad person no matter where I look.”
“That’s not the case.”
“But it is stupid!”
“Do not worry, the public opinion is different to the people on TV.”
“… Yes, that’s right!”
Shiho’s smartphone suddenly rang.
“Oh, I’m sorry”
“I do not mind, who is it?”
“I don’t know… Oh!”
“It is From Mitsuki! What should I do, what should I do!”
“Calm down, take a deep breath and pick up the call.”
Shiho repeatedly took some deep breaths as she was told and then answered the phone.
Hey hey, can you please talk without biting your tongue?
“It’s Kondo. I am sorry for calling early in the morning.”
“There is something I’d like to ask you for. My junior is wanting to know Kazama’s contact details, so please can you tell me them?”
“Why does a junior want to know his contact details?”
“She is a girl who I asked Kazama to help.”
The call was on speaker, so I accidentally commented.
“So you are there. I was wondering if you could give your contact details to her.”
“I do not mind giving them.”
“Thank you. I will get in touch with you later.”
At night, on top of Executive One.
On the rooftop lounge, I was holding a glass there.
“Sorry for making you wait.”
She has brought a refill of sake and a container of sausages. It’s a simple sake, but it is still good.
“Delicious, Shiho good at mixing.”
“Such… It’s not a big deal.”
Sray hasn’t changed to her elf form yet.
I looked up at the sky, the moon is hidden.
Sure can return to its former state only when the full moon is out.
She will remain a puppy today.
I got a sausage out of the container and presented it to Sray.
“Do you want it?”
Sley sniffs the sausage and takes it.
After giving her the sausage, I enjoyed drinking in the evening lounge.
Executive One’s lounge is terribly fantastic and it’s like being in a luxury hotel bar.
“What is it?”
Sley who had been eating sausages until now suddenly stopped.
“Well, what’s wrong? Is she allergic to sausages?”
“… No, it looks like it’s not that.”
At first, I thought so too, but I found out that it was different immediately.
There is a mass like a black gas coming out of her mouth.
“What is this?”
“It is called Pain”
“It is the grudges that gathered from humans suffering in that world, it is a monster that appeared in shape of the grudges.”
The Pain has jumped out completely from the mouth of Sray.
“Well, monster… no way… really?”
“I will explain in detail later, but this is confidential”
Shiho opened one breath and nodded with a calm appearance.
It is a powerful gaze to look at me.
Trust for me was able to be seen strongly.
I pinched the air and flicked it.
As expected it is too weak, [Distance Battle] is only level 1.
Three Pains appeared.
Both of the three were blown off with an air flick and I got 30 skill points.
The Pains came here through here through the body of Sray.
I can tell that it is not from this world.
And the fact that the Pain appeared means that the other world is suffering a lot.
“They are stupid people.”
I confirmed that the pane ceased to exist.
After checking the surroundings, I explained everything to Shiho.
That I went to the other world, and then came back here.
Shiho was first surprised at the story, but due to everything that has happened, she believed it.
