What did he say just now?

[Kohaku. Hold down that fellow]

[As your will]


Nest is attacked from behind by Kohaku whom I called, and has his back being held down by Kohaku’s forefoot. He is in his original Byakko mode.

I walk in front of the pinned down Nest, and squat down to eye level of the old man who is scared because of Kohaku.

[What god you believe in is up to you. You can do as you like even if it is wishing or praying for an unknown god that may or may not exist. However, I will not permit you to treat my Kami-sama as an evil god. Someone who doesn’t know anything about that guy cannot say anything about him as much as that someone likes]

I glare at Nest, open [Gate] on the floor, and let him fall in the middle of the river outside the castle. After the old man disappeared, only his blonde hair remained. It was a wig after all.

Casually, when I looked sideways, Phyllis, who was left behind, was surprised so much she didn’t make any sound. Oh.

That’s bad. I overdid it. Even as a joke, he is a messenger of a foreign country. There were other ways to send him away, but because he spoke ill of Kami-sama, I got unconsciously angry. Was there any reason to call that nice old man an evil god?

Nonetheless, have I still overdone it……? When I turned around, Kousaka-san was grasping his forehead and breathing a long sigh. Ah~….. was it bad after all? And he even told me not to speak as much as possible.

[ano……priest Nest……]

[Ah~…… I have transferred him out of the castle. It is alright, I haven’t done anything like injuring him]

Though I think he got completely soaked. Perhaps he may catch like cold. I am not really concerned though.

[I am really sorry for our rudeness this time. Please forgive us. To begin with, the audience today is something priest Nest strongly pushed for, and the Pope-sama wasn’t that interested at all]

Phyllis lowered her head. That’s so?

[If it’s possible to set Lars faith as this country’s state religion, then there is no other credit higher than that. Probably that is what priest Nest aimed for]

Why? In the end, is he after a promotion? Even if he is called priest, snobbery doesn’t come off.

[In any case, our country doesn’t intend to decide on a state religion. Tell that to the Pope]

[Yes, I already got that. But, ano…… it is about the talk just now…… Is it possible that Your Majesty has met god?]

Ouh? I shouldn’t have said such a thing during the conversation earlier. Did she notice something from the talk? Mmmm, what would be a good answer for this one?

[Excuse me. For saying strange thing …… I… whether there really is a god, I am already not sure anymore……]

Phyllis looks down in shame while whispering. Isn’t it bad saying such thing? More or less, you are a priest-sama.

[I’ve been wondering for long time. I think judging evil under the name of justice is splendid. But on the other hand, labeling a demonkin and people with dark attribute as evil… Is that really all right?? Will the person who has made a mistake once not be forgiven anymore? Such questions appear one after another……]

It is not like I don’t get it. But being at the stage when she doubts the god she believes in, can this girl no longer act as a priest?

At that time, the smartphone on silent mode inside my pocket vibrates. A call is incoming. Eh? With this timing? I can tell who is it without even the need to look at the incoming name since there is only one person who can call me.

I take out the smartphone and answer the call.


[O~, it has been long time. It is me, me]

Is this the “me-me” scam? Introduce yourself properly, Kami-sama. However, he made the call as if it was his intention.

[Did you happen to see it?]

[Just by chance. Iya, I saw you speaking sharply and it felt good. Thank you for feeling angry for my sake]

Uah~ I was seen. Isn’t it kinda embarrassing? While she is watching me writhing in shame, Phyllis call out to me timidly.

[ano……Who you are talking to?]



While looking at the surprised Phyllis, suddenly, I noticed the strange state of Kohaku next to me. He is not making any slight movement at all. Ha? Why? When I turned around, even Kousaka-san stopped moving. What is with that?

[Ah~ I stopped the time for a little while. It will be troublesome if I am seen by other people]

[You stopped the time!? Eh, rather, saying about being seen, don’t tell me……!]

[I thought that I should answer the doubts of that young lady. I will go there now. Afterall, she may not trust me if she doesn’t meet me. Well then]


He hung up. Eh, seriously? When I put the smartphone away from my ear, my eyes met with Phyllis.

[He said he will be coming…….]

[Coming….. who?]

[Like I said…… Travelling the multiverse as a Warlock Kami-sama]

Above our astonished heads, kami-sama descended wrapped in a shining dazzling light. Being wrapped in divine (It is normal since he is Kami-sama) aura, I understood what it is just by seeing it. Kami-sama slowly descended, and landed straight without any change on the ground.

[Yaa, I am kami-sama]

[That simple~!?]

Can’t you use words that are a little more dignified!? I instinctively made a tsukkomi towards kami-sama who is making friendly smile. Chapter 116: God, and intervention

Phyllis was simply trembling just by looking at the smiling old man standing in front of her. Ultimately, could she no longer stand? She bowed down while clinging to her knees.

[What’s wrong? Do you feel sick?]

[Kami-sama, kami-sama]

Because it seems he doesn’t understand I call out to him.

[This intimidating force or rather this divinity, can you do something about it? It is hard to look straight at you even for me]

[Eh? Really? Well, this really is the earth, isn’t it? Here. Sorry, I was somewhat careless. Whenever I am here, energy leaks out of me if I am not aware of it.]

Soon, the golden aura kami-sama was projecting disappeared gently. And at the same time, the overpowering intimidating feeling from before vanished. As expected from the one and only Kami-sama.

[It should all right with this ~jaro. Miss, are you okay?]


Even so, it seems that all Phyllis could do is raise her face. It is understandable. If she is shown something like that, she won’t have any choice but to admit that this person is a genuine god. I think the question [Does the god exist?] Demon that Got Reincarnated As A Human that Phyllis asked was answered. God exists.

[Let’s not talk here. Is there any convenient room somewhere?]

[Eh? Ah~ then shall we go to the reception room?]

I open [Gate] and connect it to the reception room. I lent my shoulder to Phyllis who seems to have troubles standing, and had the two people sit down on couch. I thought of arranging some tea for them, but when I went to boiler room both Cecil-san and Rene had been stopped while they were laughing. Reluctantly I poured some tea myself in the pot, three cups, and returned to the reception room with some tea cakes.

The two people were still facing each other the same as when I left them. Kami-sama was looking restlessly around the room, and Phyllis was still frozen like clapboard, her eyes were swimming around.

I pour tea in the cups, and line up the tea cakes. Kami-sama sips from the cup, and at the same time when he finished the one sip I spoke.

[I have just one question]

[Heave-ho, what is it ~ja ne?]

After he has placed the cup on the table, kami-sama turns his face to me.

[Does the god of light Lars exist?]

[He doesn’t. Honestly, I haven’t even heard of him. Among all intermediate level gods and even within junior level gods, that name doesn’t exist]

Wow, so resolute. Phyllis next to me has a face like she has received a shock. Of course she would, right? Because you are told that the god whom you have believed in doesn’t exist.

[Then does a god of light exist?]

[That also doesn’t exist. Well, if I am compelled to say, than it would be me ~ja. Since I am the world god ~ja. But the god of darkness does exist, there is also god of fire and wind too. In the first place what humans expect [god of ?] is a standard low class god ~ja]

Does that mean that the God of love is a low class god? But after considering everything, she was over-familiar with kami-sama who is the world god. I wonder if that’s how it is in the god’s world?

[T-then, 1000 years ago, who was the god of Light Lars-sama that the priest of light Ramirez-sama summoned?]

Priest of Light Ramirez? Oh, was he the founder of Ramisshu holy kingdom? Wasn’t he the person who borrowed the power of the god of light and purified the land.

[You’re saying he summoned a god? Even if a human is capable of summoning a god, it is still very rare ~ja. But because there are also gods who descend on a whim, so I won’t say that there are none]

You not the one to say that. You descended entirely on a whim.

[According to the story, I don’t think it was a god. Wouldn’t it be closer to spirit? I guess if it was the spirit of light it is also possible to summon it. ~ja]

[So vague. Can’t we just somehow go back to the past or something and see it?]

[It is not impossible but…… it is troublesome, you see ~ja? Though mainly it is for myself. If I tell you in terms from where you originally came, consider this. Even though it’s easy to pause the streaming of a television program when doing a recording, can I find the commercially streamed segment of a late night program from one year ago within the mountain of the past DVDs without indexing?]

It’s a difficult example to understand! Though I somehow understood it! I get that it is terribly troublesome.

[In that case…… what on earth are our teachings……?]

Being completely denied by Kami-sama, Phyllis got depressed. It is understandable though since what she was believing in had completely collapsed. But…….

[Is it no good for you guys without god? Can’t you move forward on your own believes, purposes, and responsibilities? I don’t mind if you make a god as an emotional support. Parents and siblings, lover and master, you should trust in them so that they would trust you. However, you mustn’t be dependent. Gods will do nothing. Only you guys can save yourselves. You guys have power that can create miracles and move the world. We will only watch over that.]

Though I also think that Kami-sama does interfere quite a lot, it is not as thorough as what they say, right?

But, I will keep silent. As some people say, some things are better left unsaid. Phyllis next to me is crying out wholeheartedly. It is not exactly the mood to meddle in.

[Well, even though I said that, I decided in the end against leaving this place in its current state. If Touya-kun wasn’t sent here, I also might have not peeped in for another 10,000 years or so]

Ua~! You have ruined it, you know! What’s with [We will only watch over that]! You are not watching! You are neglecting it, aren’t you! Besides, there might be a lot of different worlds to manage!

[Is it fine with this……?]

[Mmmm, it may sound cruel, but that is the responsibility of the people living here even if this world falls into ruin. Basically, the gods will not do anything. Well, of course we will respond if the crisis that will lead to a downfall is caused by the intervention of gods like a descent of an evil god.]

Though for me, I wouldn’t want such descent to happen. This is somewhat carefree. Or rather, isn’t it that the said rule is easily contradicted?

[Ma, basically I want the people of this world to deal with the world’s problems in some way or another ~ja. Even if the demon king appeared and started something within the lines of world domination, we wouldn’t involve ourselves as long as that demon king was a resident of this world. We might at most bestow things like weapons to defeat the demon king. After all, I hate a world where the people suffer.]

I see. Does that way also exist even if it is not a direct intervention? However, that’s sufficient. It is comparable to lending a hand. The god will not intervene even if the world collapses. Yet they will still give something like a super weapon capable of defeating the demon king even if they said that they won’t intervene. What’s with that half-baked overprotection?

[I guess it can’t be helped even if one depends on his or her parents forever ~ja. The humans of this world are no longer children. You should be able to walk and think by yourselves. Then, you will naturally clear the hardships and ordeals you come across to. The gods will watch over you. Occasionally]

Occasionally? That was unnecessary. Well, someone is surely being watched around the clock though.

[What should I do from now on?…… The god of light Lars doesn’t exist. Those teachings were artificially created by someone. Doesn’t that make all of our actions meaningless? Does it?]

[They are not meaningless. That is if there is someone who is saved by those teachings. From now on, instead of doing it [For God], you ought to do it [For people] without being tied up by teachings]


It may be impossible to change ideas immediately though. It is pretty much akin to a basis of life that you came to believe in all this time. But, it will be good if you are liberated from this curse little by little.
