Here’s the chapter, enjoy~
───[The World’s Disposal Ground].
It was a place where negative powers from all over the world gathered and swirled around, and one of the “Evil” was humming there.
“Fufun♪, I wonder how I should kill them. Cutting them up is good, but burning them is also amusing… Oh, spraying poison on them sounds interesting too! What kind of screams will they make? I’m looking forward to it!”
One of the Evil talked about such cruel things with a childlike innocence.
His appearance was that of a young boy, with reddish-black hair and odd-eyes of red and blue.
Then, another Evil shimmered by and appeared right beside the young boy. This Evil was a young man with blue-black hair and gold eyes, with a somewhat unworldly appearance.
“──You’re in a good mood, aren’t you?”
“Hmm? Well, yeah. After all, I can finally kill those Holy, right? I’m so excited that I can’t even sleep.”
“…If you’re that motivated, it’ll make it easier for me to ask you.”
“Eh? What is it? What’s the request?”
The boyish Evil asked about the young man’s statement with a somewhat pompous look, brimming with curiosity. The young man smiled at him.
“Be happy. This is your first job. Go and destroy the Regal Kingdom.”
It was an unfamiliar name to the boy, and he tilted his head.
“Hmm… Come to think of it, I don’t know anything about human countries. Ahahahahaha.”
“Sigh… It’s not a laughing matter. You should at least know their geography. If you don’t, you won’t even be able to go there for the task.”
“Yeess. …So? What’s the point of destroying that country?”
“The Sword Saint is there.”
The boyish Evil’s eyes widened at the young man’s words.
“It seems that the Sword Saint is now in the Regal Kingdom. Besides, there will be many people gathering in the Regal Kingdom for the upcoming national celebration… how about it? Is this a suitable setting for you?”
The boyish Evil, who was listening to the young man’s words with his face looking down at the ground, now raised his head.
There was───a malicious smile on his face.
“That’s amaaaaziinnnggg! What is it? Are you going to give me the Sword Saint? Not only that, but you’re even giving me the other humans in that place!”
“You’re not lying, right? If you lie to me, I’ll kill you!”
“I’m not lying. What do you say? Will you do this favor for me?”
The boyish Evil nodded with a smile at these words.
“Of course, I will!”
“Phew… that’s good. But the attack must be timed to occur during the Regal Kingdom’s national festival. Do you understand?”
“You don’t have to tell me! That’s when many humans will gather, right? Rather, that’s the only option! I like it! I like it! It’s a slaughter party! I’ll make it the best party ever!”
Actually, the boyish Evil was tempted to go for the killings right now, but he restrained himself as he decided to hold out until the time when he could kill a lot of human beings at once.
His excitement was still palpable, but he asked the other Evil about something that had been bothering him.
“But… why did you give this task to me? I thought you were going to kill the Sword Saint.”
“Indeed, it is the Sword Saint who was the most likely candidate for killing the Fist Saint to whom I had lent my power to. But that doesn’t mean that I have to kill the Sword Saint. I’m… no, it’s fine as long as one of us can destroy the Sword Saint and all of humanity.”
“Hmm… well, whatever. I’ll let you guys think about the complicated stuff.”
“We’d like you to use your head, too.”
“That’s difficult. I’m always trying to think of the most interesting way to kill. I don’t have time to think about anything else!”
“…Oh well. Anyway, I’ll leave you in charge of Regal Kingdom. We will prepare for the attack on the other countries.”
“Okay. So, can I go now?”
“That’s fine, but what are you going to do?”
“Eeh? To put on a nice show, of course♪.”
“…Well, as long as they don’t know you’re there, you can do whatever you want.”
“Yay! Then I’ll be heading there as soon as possible, and then I’ll set it up so I can kill all the humans.”
The boyish Evil’s mind was already focused on killing the people in the unknown place.
“Oh, yeah. Can I borrow some of the Fallen Saints?”
“Hmm? The Fallen Saints?”
“…That’s surprising. I thought you planned on doing this all by yourself…”
“Eeh? That’s unexpected, right? You know what? Sometimes it’s more fun to do things with several people, you know?”
“I see. Well then…”
The Evil with the appearance of a young man snapped his fingers and a crack in space appeared, and two people emerged from it.
One of them was a half-naked man, showing a slender yet well-trained body. He had short, dark blue hair and sharp eyes. He was carrying a long spear on his back taller than himself.
The other man wore a black costume which looked somewhat like a ninja from Earth. His mouth was covered with a black cloth as well, and his long green hair was pulled up into a single bun. His eyes, which had the same green, looked very cold-hearted. There were two grass-cutting sickles hanging from his waist.
The two men immediately knelt down before two Evils.
“”────Did you call us?””
“Would these two suffice?”
“Yes. They seem to be… the Spear and Sickle Saint, right?”
“Yeah. Although their abilities have been reduced, they are still former Holy. I think it will be no problem.”
The two new men who appeared were originally bearers of the Holy title that opposed the Evil. Now, they became the pawns of the Evil, and had come to be called the Fallen Saints.
The two “Fallen Saints” quietly bowed their heads, but they could not stop their bodies from trembling in the presence of the two “Evils” in front of them. The power of the two Evils were so great that they could feel the difference in their abilities.
When boyish Evil, who was aware of the two’s trembling, looked at them and smiled wickedly, a new distortion in the place was suddenly created. It was a distortion of space that seemed to ooze darkness, but this distortion itself gradually took shape, and eventually, a single [Monster] was created.
The monster quietly opened its red eyes.
The two “Fallen Saints” took a precautionary stance facing such a monster. Then, when the monster caught sight of the boyish Evil, it attacked him. However, the boyish Evil, who was being attacked, simply looked at the monster with cold eyes.
“Sigh… This is why I hate newborns. They don’t know the difference in ability, they don’t fear death, and that’s why they’re not fun───What a nuisance.”
When the boy’s Evil waved away his hand carelessly, the monster was blown away and rolled on the ground haphazardly.
The Spear Saint, who was just staring at the scene in dismay, opened his mouth with a look of surprise.
“Aah, you guys are seeing it for the first time, right? That’s an Evil Beast… that is not a part of us.”
“So, that’s the Evil Beast…”
“Well, they’re just the crystallization of our residue. They’re not perfect, but they can be used if you train them. There are plenty of them out there, after all. They can be a good fighting force.”
The two “Fallen Saints” could not say anything.
“Sure, they’re nothing like us, but if you fight those things, even you might die. Ahahahahaha!”
The two “Fallen Saints” paled at the sight of the boyish Evil’s innocent laughter.
The reason for this was because they were now aware that the Evil possessed a large number of these creatures that would probably kill them if they had fought.
No matter how they looked at it, they couldn’t imagine the Holy defeating the Evil.
“But you have to go a little easier on it. Or else it will become useless.”
“Eeh? Why don’t you just heal it?”
“I’d rather kill it than to go through such trouble. But it’s also troublesome to kill it. Therefore, I’d just leave it.”
“Ahahahahahaha! Y-you’re terrible!”
“There are plenty of them out there, afterall.”
The boyish Evil, who laughed for a while, told the young man, who was still smiling.
“Then I’ll be off for a while. And while I’m at it, could I take a few of those Evil Beasts with me to use as well?”
“Yeah, do what you want. I have high expectations.”
“Yes, yes, yes. …Oh hey, you two, what’s with your lackluster response…? I’m gonna kill you if you keep that up.”
“Oh! I-I’m sorry…”
The boyish Evil threatened the two Fallen Saints, who were still dumbfounded, and left the place. The young man who saw them off also left for his own business.
Only the Evil Beast that was blown away earlier was left behind.
The Evil Beast was no longer breathing and looked like it was about to die.
Suddenly, something that looked like a magic circle unfolded underneath the body of the dying Evil Beast, and the magic circle shone violently.
The Evil Beast desperately tried to escape the magic circle, but its body could not move as it wished, and its body became entangled in the magic circle’s light. And when the light subsided… the figure of the Evil Beast was no longer there.
