4 Late Fire Moon (September) 10:27 PM

It was a fierce battle.

The bug maid finally sunk to the ground like a marionette whose strings had been cut.

Evileye had lost a lot of magical energy, and most of her consumables were gone. In terms of sheer profit and loss, she was far in the red.

“We won.” Breathing roughly, covered in wounds, Gagaran proclaimed their victory. She didn’t have a single healing item left, but she hadn’t lost as much health as her visible injuries made it seem.

“Let’s deal the final blow.”

“Yeah,” Evileye agreed with Tia’s suggestion. The bug maid was dying, but she wasn’t deceased yet. Her shrill cries were proof of that.

The safe thing to do was to unhesitatingly take her life while she was already robbed of her capacity for combat.

Tia charged with her sword but suddenly froze. Faster than Evileye could ask what was wrong, she saw what had happened.

“Could I have you leave it at that?”

She couldn’t believe it, but at some point, a man had arrived and was standing in front of the bug maid.

He wore strange clothes that were not ordinarily seen in the region. From what Evileye knew, it was a type of garment worn in the south called a suit. The newcomer also wore a mask, so she couldn’t see his face.

Only one thing was certain: He couldn’t be human. A tail was visible behind him.

“Hey, Evileye, is he a relative of yours?”

Don’t be stupid, she wanted to say, but the words wouldn’t come out. She felt like she’d been struck by lightning. When she looked at her right hand, it was soaked with sweat.

“Are you all right? I’ll take over from here, so please go back and rest.”

The man completely ignored the Blue Roses, even though they had their weapons at the ready, and spoke gently to the bug maid. It was enough to make him likable despite being an enemy, but not to Evileye.

The horror that had made it all the way to her toes wasn’t going away.

Her survival instincts kicked in. She lowered her voice and frantically told Gagaran and Tia, “…Run. Idiot, don’t look this way. Stay quiet and listen. That guy is…incredibly strong. A monster among monsters. Run away as fast as you can and don’t look back.”

“…What are you going to do?” Gagaran asked, distraught.

“Don’t worry about it. Once I’ve bought enough time for you two to escape, I’ll teleport away immediately.”

It wasn’t clear how, but the injured maid who shouldn’t have been able to move staggered to her feet. It didn’t seem like she’d used healing magic nor that she’d quaffed any medicine, either.

A bug flew over from out of sight, attached to her back, and took off into the night sky. The maid howled shrilly as she flew away.

The Blue Roses had let her escape from right under their noses, but it was more important for Evileye to not take her eyes off the man before them. That went for the other two as well. Their foreheads were slick with sweat, and they stood frozen.
