Ex Strongest, Meeting Together
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
The cycle of Soma’s life after being taken care of by the Holy City could be roughly divided into two ways. On the other hand, the behavior of the day changed dramatically depending on whether Satya was awake or not.
That said, it was simple when Satya was sleeping. For now, there was nothing to do. Even if they were asking for the fight with the world, he had no choice but to wait for the other side.
Although it was possible to gather information without Satya, it was surprisingly inefficient. Even if he tried to get as much information as possible from books for the time being, he couldn’t get it.
What Soma and others wanted to know was the truth of the world. However, the truth was sometimes radical and often contradicted the widely known common sense.
In a sense, dealing with things such as the truth of the world that no one knew was a monopoly patent of religion, but if they overdid it too blatantly, they would become just a suspicious organization. Since they had no intention of clearly rebelling against the world until now, they had to be quiet. Due to such various circumstances, there were few books written about the truth.
It might be that the amount of Soma’s knowledge was simply higher than what Eleonora and Satya’s had imagined. He hadn’t spent more than ten years of accumulating knowledge for nothing. Originally, he did so because he intended to use magic, but anyhow, he must have already acquired a lot of knowledge.
There was only a few pieces of information that Soma didn’t know in the Holy City, especially in areas where Soma was interested. It could be understood by the small amount of books that was given to Soma which was what Soma needed to read. It was even certain that Soma only knew a part of it, not everything in the books.
That was why Soma had spared time yesterday, and it was an urgent task to think about what to do in the future. However, at least, he didn’t have to think about it today. Since today was the day when Satya woke up.
By the way, Satya’s manner on the day before ‘she’ woke up wasn’t decided. That was because it depended on Satya’s mood.
No, Soma thought that ‘she’ would wake up because of something, but no matter how he looked at it, it seemed that it was decided by ‘her’ mood. Thus, he wouldn’t know what he would do today until he met the existence in question.
“S-say, can I really come to this place?” (Aina)
As Soma was walking in the place where he started to get used to it and was wondering what he was going to do today, he heard an uneasy voice from behind. When he looked at Aina’s gaze without stopping his feet, he saw her expression that seemed to be as uneasy as her voice. The clothes she wore were still maid outfit today, and she seemed to be serious about wearing them while she was here.
Anyhow, Soma and others were on their way to Satya’s room. In other words, they were heading to the inner part of the shrine, which was probably the reason why Aina felt uneasy. Aina, who seemed to be a bit overwhelmed, must be thinking that it wasn’t appropriate for her to be in such a place.
However, she was completely over thinking.
“Didn’t she say it earlier? It’s fine because you’re also being called. Eleonora speaks it again today, right?” (Soma)
“Well, you’re right… isn’t that where we were yesterday? I feel that I was being discourteous…” (Aina)
“Discourteous… I don’t think it’s necessary to think that when it comes to ‘her’. Or rather, ‘she’ said it herself, right?” (Hildegard)
“‘She’ also said that Aina’s standpoint is as good as ours. ‘She’ looks at us and it’s clear that ‘she’ is in the usual attitude, so I think Aina should be fine.” (Soma)

“Both of you are acting as always! Oops…” (Aina)
Immediately after she shouted, Soma shrugged his shoulders when he saw Hildegard and Aina, who was looking around. Apparently, it would be difficult for her to stay as usual for a while.
Anyhow, Soma and the rest were heading to Satya’s room, but Aina was also there because he brought it with him. She wasn’t actually told anything, but considering yesterday’s discussion with Eleonora, bringing her should be the correct answer.
Or actually, it didn’t make sense to keep her here, and that was also true in regards of the collaboration with her country. It was because of that Soma didn’t really know what he would do later.
“Well, I understand that you’re worried, but let me say this. You don’t have to worry for the time being. If something disturbing happens, I’ll just slash it.” (Soma)
“I-I’m not worried, you know… I don’t have to worry about that when you’re here.” (Aina)
“Is that so? It seems that you trust me.” (Soma)
“H-how about me!? If something happens to me, will you do something about it!?” (Hildegard)
“Won’t you do something even if I don’t do anything about it?” (Soma)
“The difference in attitude…!? Why is it when it comes to me, you’ll show discrimination!?” (Hildegard)
“It’s true that it’s a favoritism, but it’s not discrimination.” (Soma)
While saying that, they arrived at Satya’s room. He glanced at Aina and she seemed to be fine even when she looked anxious. They stepped into the room as it was.
Apparently, Satya had already woken up. When they entered the room, they soon met her. However, for some reason, a bitter smile was floating on ‘her’ face.
“Hmm… was it a bit noisy?” (Soma)
“No, it doesn’t matter because it’s as usual in a sense… More importantly, I’m not planning to interrupt all of you. So, I want you to forgive me for listening.” (Satya)
“…I see.” (Soma)
Apparently, ‘she’ could hear what they were talking about.
Of course, that was only a figure of speech, and ‘she’ wasn’t really thinking about it.
“Now, I come as promised. At least to me, it feels like you’re planning something.” (Soma)
“You don’t trust me, huh… well, it’s true that I have something to think about. It’s just that… at least, it’s true I won’t do anything to her. So, would it be helpful if you don’t show that murderous intention? In fact, I’m not going to do anything to her, and what will happen to her it’s not because of me, alright?” (Satya)
“Well, I guess so.” (Soma)
When Soma turned around to confirm Satya’s words, Aina opened and closed her mouth with her eyes wide open. Her eyes were on Satya, and what was in her eyes was a surprise… or rather, awe. It must be because of his mind that she looked slightly pale.
Yes, that was certainly the case. Satya wasn’t doing anything.
However, that was that, this was this.
“That’s why I told you, right? I can’t show up in front of anyone.” (Satya)
“I thought I understood what it meant to be at a glance, but… it is until this point, huh?” (Soma)
“Well, surprisingly, I can’t understand it by myself to what extent it was.” (Hildegard)
“Hmm… should I let Aina look at ‘her’ from a distance at first and bring her closer little by little? Well, maybe I should do that.” (Soma)
“Am I a rare animal or something? I don’t think that’s necessary you know? She would get used to it soon. She is still close to the average person, but she’s definitely out of the ordinary. I would say that she’s not someone with Special Rank for nothing.” (Satya)
When Soma turned around after ‘she’ said that, Aina’s complexion had certainly changed. The surprise and awe in the eyes remained the same, but she slowly returned to normal. Her mouth had stopped opening and closing, and she was almost settled down.
And in anticipation of that, Satya smiled at her.
“Hi, nice to meet you. I’m Satya Lindenberg. I’m doing something like being a pillar of God, but don’t worry too much about it. We’re going to be friends from now on. The next Magic King.” (Satya)
‘She’ gave such a greeting to Aina.
