“Then, what will you do? Fight me? Or not?”

“Well…”

Conversely being asked like that by Alfilis made Anorun troubled.

“If I said I will, then what will you do?”
“Well, I don’t want to die so I will resist, but I don’t have any desire to kill you.”

“I am the same. I don’t want to kill you.”

“Why? Isn’t it your job?”

“That’s rude. My job is indeed different from a common Sister. Usually, Sisters are dispatched accordingly to parish, to offer prayer in certain monasteries or churches, or doing voluntary services at orphanages or hospitals. However in my case, I handle more dangerous jobs.”

“For example?”

 

Hearing Alfilis’ question, Anorun placed her hand on her chin, showing a slightly troubled gesture.

“For example… going to an area that has yet to receive influence from the church and examining if it is possible to do missionary or church work there, or going to a place which fell into ruin and investigate the reason. If necessary I also negotiate with the town or even the country. I also investigate whether the area under the church’s influence follows our teachings or not. Sad to say, but even for organizations like us there are those who use their influence for their own profit. In my case, I even investigate demon’s movement. Well, in other words, something like an inspector?”

“Then, how many years it has been?”
“I think it’s been almost ten years…”

“Then Sister is already thirty years o…”

“What.Did.You.Say?”

“It-it’s nothing! I’m going to pick flowers!”

 

Seeing veins popping up on Anorun’s forehead, Alfilis ran towards the forest in a flutter.

“Don’t go too far! …Wait, I sound like her guardian…”

“Haah…” Anorun sighed. Somehow Alfilis skilfully changed the subject, but well, let’s leave it at is it. To tell the truth, personally Anorun was quite fond of Alfilis, so she thought it was better to watch the situation for a little longer.

“Personally, I think she’s not dangerous, but the higher ups might not think so. The truth is I must at least report her existence, but even with only that, I feel her movement will be considerably restricted. That Archbishop, despite being bald, has hard head.”

“There’s no connection between being bald and hard headed, right?”
“Well, that’s true…Wait, who?”

Anorun looked around her but no one was there. However, unknown when it appeared, there was a little bird that landed at her side.

“Did you forget the voice of your own master?”

“Who? Or rather where are you??”
“In front of you.”

The little bird stared intensely towards Anorun. Though it’s just a little bird, the gaze was terribly sharp. Despite it being just a bird, somehow it seemed dignified. And Anorun also felt she saw that kind of gaze somewhere before…

“No way…”
“It’s as you thought.”

“I’ve become insane!?”

“No, you’ve already been insane since long ago…wait, not that!”

Finally, the little bird flew towards Anorun and pecked her with its beak.

“What is it bird!? You want me to roast and eat you!?”

“You, is that how a Sister speaks? It seems you really need to be scolded severely!”

“That manner of speaking…no, no way…Master Bishop!?”
“Finally you realize it, this fool.”

 

Seeming pleased that Anorun realized who it was, the little bird reclined its head. Though Anorun also thought that pose was kind of cute, she didn’t forget that inside it was a cruel incarnation.

Anorun immediately asked respectfully.

“Since when have you been here?”

“I’ve been observing for around one month. Using this bird’s body of course.

“You’re that free??”

“I am not! Or rather you haven’t sent any reports since nine months ago. Didn’t I order you to report to me at three months interval? Why didn’t you report?”
“Well…ehehe…”

“Don’t try to act cute! Just saying, if you try to laugh it off, I will truly become angry!”

The bird’s gaze turned even sharper. It’s just a palm sized bird, yet Anorun felt intimidating pressure from it.

“By the way, right now I’m at Mishia.”

“Geh!”

“Reach the town by sunset. Of course with the report, but I also need to tell you the next instruction.”
“The thing I need to report, is pretty urgent.”

Anorun turned serious in an instant.

“I know. The thing about the possibility of a demon king appearance, right?”
“! So you were already aware of it?”
“Who do you think I am? I even have eyes and ears in that place. If needed I can even replay the caustic words you said at the bar about cutting XXX.”

“You, you can even do that?”

“I can. I can even tell what the colour of the underwear you wore today.”
“That’s sexual harassment!”

“What sexual harassment, despite being a Sister you wear that kind of shameless underwear. If anyone looks inside your bag, I think their faith towards our church will plummet.”
“Please stop!”

Somehow since the olden days, Anorun couldn’t handle the highest founder. Even in wars of words, she didn’t feel that she could win. Well, it couldn’t be helped after all. Since she wouldn’t exist without the highest founder. Anorun is not the type who could forget a debt.

And as expected, the highest founder started to talk about Alfilis,

“By the way, about your travel companion.”
“Ye, yes!”

Anorun become even more respectful, kneeling on top of the rock.

“(As expected highest founder noticed it, well she’s been with me this whole time after all. Highest founder is strict toward heresy and people who disrupt the peace. Of course, highest founder won’t let it be. And once inside highest founder’s radar, there’s no place to run to for Alfilis. This is my fault…)”

Cold sweat dripped on Anorun’s back. However outside her expectations, highest founder’s words were light,

“We will put it on hold for now.”
“Hie?”
“Don’t let out such stupid voice. I only judge that she poses little danger.”

“Why…?”
“Are you dissatisfied?”
“N, no.”

 

Anorun denied it in a hurry.

“By the way, I have some connection with Aldoryus. If she was brought up by him, then it should be fine. At least from her herself. And also, did you forget our church’s creed? Affection is part of it, you know?”

“Well, it is true, but, isn’t she a heretic?”

 

Anorun asked timidly. However, the highest founder’s voice was calm.

“She hasn’t caused any trouble, and it doesn’t seem like she will. I heard your conversations, and I can guarantee there’s not even a spec of a lie in her statements. If I punish even that kind of person, then this world full of sinners. Even if she’s a user of dark magic, dark doesn’t equate with evil. Other than that, guiding people towards the right path with an affectionate heart is one of our duties, is it not?”
“Yes…Many thanks towards highest founder leniency.”

Anorun sighed in relief, but the founder pointed sharply,

“Well, it seems you took a liking to her. You should ascertain her fate with your own eyes. At least until you part ways. However, you lied to her didn’t you?”
“Did I?”

“What ten years, try decades! It has been at least 100 years since you’ve taken this duty, hasn’t it?”
“That’s…even if I tell the truth, I don’t think she can accept it…”

Looking at Anorun who hung her head, the highest founder’s voice turned softer.

“I don’t think so. That girl said she felt she couldn’t beat you. Perhaps instinctively she knows about your immortality.”
“Is that so…”
“Well, telling her or not is for you to decide. However if you truly want to befriend her, it’s better if you tell her. Just like with me.”

“Master…”

“Ops, it seems we talked too much. Alfilis is returning. Don’t forget, reach the town before sunset. By the way, if you don’t make it, it will be time for an embarrassing scolding.”

Hearing that Anorun jumped up.

“Embarrassing scolding? Don’t tell me…”

“Kukuku, yes that one. The one I did in the olden days, you were showing a good crying face that time… Even now I want to see it again. Actually I don’t mind even if you don’t make it in time. I don’t mind you know. Kukuku…”

Together with those daring words, the bird smirked. Even though bird shouldn’t have any muscles to smirk. Anorun felt she just saw something ominous. It might appear in her dreams tonight.

“Well then, I will be waiting!”

 

After saying whatever it wanted, the highest founder left in a flash.

“Despite being an important person, highest founder is really noisy…Hm? By the way….Master! Where should I meet you?? Which part of the town?? You’re making me search for you in that big town? I won’t make it! Damn!”

“I am back. What is it, Sister?”
“Quick follow me Alfi! My chastity is in danger!!”

“Eh? I don’t understand what are you talking about…”

Even while saying that, the two of them hurried the horses towards the town. It goes without saying, the highest founder observed the two rushing travellers.
