Chapter 2

After soaring through the skies on Lolii, who had changed his form into that of a dragon, Keiki and the others spotted a maid being assaulted by a tentacle-like monster as they passed over a forest. Countless vines were stretching out of the ground to grab hold of a girl who looked exactly like Tokihara Sayuki.

“Sayuki-senpai, are you okay?!”

“Eh? W-Who are you?”

The instant Lolii landed in the forest clearing, Keiki jumped off onto the ground and quickly ran over to the girl.

“My name is Sayuki, yes, but I feel like this is the first time we’ve met?”

“So you’re only a lookalike…”

“I don’t really get it, but could you do me a favour and save me?”

“That’s what I was planning on doing!”

Even if it was a monster, it was still just a plant. Keiki went to rip away the vines that were holding onto the girl’s body, but—

“Kufuuuuuuun?!”

The vines whipped back at Keiki, and his body was thrown backwards. After flying through the air a short ways, he landed on the ground on his back, right at the feet of Yuika and Lolii. Lolii had already returned to his human form.

“Hero-senpai, trying to fight a monster without a weapon is like having a death wish, you know.”

“Yes, I just realized that…”

“This is a very typical kind of plant monster that lives in this forest. Although it is a monster that targets humans, nobody has ever died because of them, so I think she’ll be fine.”


“Eh, really? That’s good, then.”

“Well, they do secrete some special kind of acid that melts clothes.”

It does what…? Lifting his body up from the ground, Keiki’s gaze wandered over towards the maid. He thought he saw the vines emitting some sort of ooze, and he saw that parts of the girl’s maid uniform had started to burn away.

“Nooooo?! Not my clothes!!!”

“She’s not fine at all!”

As it turns out, this monster was nothing but a huge pervert. Holes appeared in Sayuki’s maid uniform, offering glances of her white skin and flashy underwear. At this rate, she might end up completely naked.

“We have to hurry and save her!”

“But how will you do that? Even if I turn into a weapon, that thing will attack the second you come closer, you know.”

“Uuu…”

The enemy consisted entirely of multiple tentacles emerging from the ground. Even if you cut off one, another one would take its place.

“…Haah, there’s no other choice, it seems.”

“Yuika-chan?”

“Yuika will take care of this.”

The frills of her black dress shook, and the girl stepped to the front. She turned towards the tentacles and let loose bullets of fire aimed the roots of the tentacles. Plants are defenseless against fire. Apparently, even monsters made out of plants were no exception, and these tentacles quickly burned away. Having been freed from her restriction, Sayuki fell down to the ground.

“Kyaaaaaa?!”

“Careful!!!”

At this rate, she’d hit the ground hard enough to hurt herself. Keiki kicked the ground, dashing towards her, and successfully caught her body.

“T-That was close…”

While he let out a sigh of relief, his gaze dropped down to the girl in his hands. Not intentionally, of course, but rather by his instinct as a man, his gaze naturally wandered towards the valley of her chest. When she noticed where he was looking, the girl nervously fidgeted and bashfully tried to cover the parts where the tentacles had eaten through her maid uniform.

“Umm… This is pretty embarrassing, so could you not stare too much?”

“Ah, I’m sorry.”

“I’m kidding. It gets me excited, so please stare even more.”

“Wait, which is it?!”

The virgin boy panicked ever so slightly, not knowing where to look for a second. Apparently, the Sayuki in this world also loved to tease others. But Keiki disregarded his confusion for a second and safely set the girl down on the ground.

“Thanks for saving me. The tentacles were about to rob me of my precious virginity.”

“There’s no need to go that far…”

“Yuika was the one who defeated the monster, though?”

“Oh, I was wondering who that was. It’s Yuika-san.”

“Ah, do you two know each other?”

“Of course we do. That person is also one of the demon lord’s generals. Since we graduated from the same magic school, Yuika calles her Witch-senpai.”

“Oh, wow.”

Keiki was surprised that he had met two generals of the demon lord in such quick succession. This new world might be smaller than Keiki thought.

“And may I ask who you might be?”

“My name is Keiki. And this person here is Lolii.”

“Hello there. You have a wonderful pair of breasts, Onee-san.”

“That’s some fine sexual harassment there… Well, it’s not like I dislike having men look at me with lewd eyes.”

“So Senpai in this world is just as much of a pervert, I see…”

After that, Keiki gave Sayuki a quick rundown of the situation. That he had come to this world in order to defeat the demon lord. How he managed to discipline Yuika in the city Virgin. And finally, that they happened to spot Sayuki being attacked as they were heading towards the next city.

“…I see. So you’re the hero who appeared in this world to save it.”

“Yes. But what exactly where you doing in a place like this, Sayuki-senpai?”

“It’ll turn into a longer story, but… Nanjou-san and I conquered the city a ways away from here.”

“Witch-senpai, you were with Nanjou-senpai?”

“Yes. After that, we took over the feudal lord’s residence and started reigning over the city, but we had a disagreement over how we should rule the town, so we parted ways. Since it wasn’t fun at all, I just ran away from home.”

“So that’s when you got attacked by tentacles in the forest here.”

“Pretty much… By the way, why is Hero-kun addressing me as ‘Senpai’?”

“I mean, you seem older than me, from the looks of it.”

The truth was that she looked identical to the Sayuki-senpai he knew, so not adding the ‘Senpai’ would feel off to him. Just then, Lolii jumped into the conversation.

“For now, it seems like the next general, Nanjou, is living in the next city. Let’s free that city from her rule and then make our way to the capital.”

“Yeah, sounds good.”

Judging from the name ‘Nanjou’, Keiki already could guess that the next general would look identical to the Nanjou Mao he knew. Judging from the flow of events thus far, this didn’t seem too far-fetched an idea. Though he was a bit worried as to how powerful she might be, seeing that she was one of the demon lord’s generals.

“What do you plan to do, Sayuki-senpai? If you try to get in our way, we’ll have to fight you.”

“There’s no need for that anymore. I have been freed from the shackles of being a general of the demon lord.”

“Eh, really?”

“Yes. After all—I’ve found another place of employment.”

Immediately after she said these words, the girl suddenly embraced Keiki. Her well-endowed chest started pressing against him, and she rubbed her cheek on his chest.

“Woah, Sayuki-senpai?! What are you doing?!”

“Fufu, you see… When you were embracing me just now, my heart started beating really fast…”


“Eh?”

“To be honest, I even got a bit wet.”

“What are we talking about again?!”

“I won’t forget the debt I owe you for saving me from those perverted tentacles… That being said, I’ll be your very own maid from today onwards, Hero-kun.”

“No thank you.”

“You shot me down that quickly?! I-I’m a super hardcore masochist, you know, so I’ll obey any order you give me, no matter how lewd it is!”

“And that’s exactly why I don’t need you as a maid!”

As expected, the Sayuki from this world was just as much of a masochistic pervert as the one from Keiki’s original world. And even though this was a different world, Keiki’s stance that he would give his first time to the girl he loves hadn’t changed. This perverted maid’s temptations wouldn’t work against the Hero. After Sayuki’s confession (?) ended in failure, Yuika took the initiative.

“I see that Witch-senpai is still as much of a pervert as ever. You seem to stil want to be used as a sex toy by every boy you see.”

“Hmph, I don’t want to be told that by the person who wants to make a slave out of every boy she meets.”

“Grrr…”

“Hmph~”

The two of them glared at each other, and sparks seemed to fly through the air between them. Since he had seen enough of this sight in his old world to grow tired of it already, Keiki let out a sigh.

Lolii glanced at him and spoke up. “What should we do, Hero-dono?”

After giving the question a bit of thought, Keiki replied. “It seems like a bother, so let’s just leave both of them here.”

Without showing any mercy, the Hero decided to leave the two of them behind.

*

Leaving the two fighting girls behind, Keiki once again rode on Lolii’s back. They flew all the way to the next village and descended to the ground near the outskirts.

“But was it really the right call to leave them behind?”

“This might have been the best decision I’ve made all year, to be honest.”

Some men might feel a bit guilty for leaving two girls alone in a forest full of tentacle monsters, but Keiki felt no remorse at all. Not to mention that, while they were flying off, he heard them screaming things like “Running away won’t do you any good! Either way, you’ll definitely become Yuika’s slave!” and “You’ll definitely become my master!” This only helped reassure Keiki that leaving them behind was the right choice.

“Well, even if something happens to them, Yuika-chan can just blow the tentacles away with her magic.”

“True. Worst-case, they’ll just end up butt-naked.”

There was no actual threat to their lives. While ending up naked might be a dilemma for girls of their age, Keiki had to focus on finding the third general now.

“So this is the city that Sayuki-senpai was talking about…”

“Yeah. By the way, this city is named ‘Cherry Boy’.”

“What is up with these city names?”

Maybe this world held some sort of grudge against virgins. As Keiki approached the gate together with the human-form Lolii, he realized that this city wasn’t all too different from Virgin. It was a fairly normal kind of city that you could find anywhere.

“At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong here…Hm? Hmmm?!?!”

Or so he thought, but as they progressed further, they were confronted with a truly shocking sight. Keiki spotted the terrace of what seemed to be a cafe in front of him. A couple was sitting at a table with a drink in front of them and two straws coming out of it. They both were drinking out of it at the same, but the sight of a couple being lovey-dovey wasn’t the reason why Keiki found himself shocked. No, the problem was that the couple consisted of two young men.

“Ah, look, Hero-dono! Over there! Two men are eating a crepe and acting all flirty!”

“Ehhh…?”

Yes, this city wasn’t as normal as Keiki thought it was at first glance. To be precise, it was riddled with pairs of men. A lovey-dovey couple of two young boys was leaning against each other on a bench. A pair of middle-aged men passed by them, holding hands. It truly was a surreal scene. The final blow was dealt by the sight of a young boy with a flushed face standing in front of a water fountain and kissing a flashy, long-haired boy on the cheek.

“What is wrong with this city?”

“It’s male couples wherever you look.”

“And I don’t see a single woman anywhere…”

“No, there seem to be some. Like the employee of that shop over there… Ah, over there in the window, as well. It seems like they aren’t allowed to leave the house?”

“What kind of rule is that supposed to be? Just what is going on here?”

Even if Lolii’s assumption proved to be true, what kind of meaning would there be in establishing that sort of rule?

—You who cherishes big-breasted girls more than the sturdy chest of a man.

“…Hmm? Did you just say something, Lolii?”

“No, I didn’t say anything.”

—Using my magic, you will awaken to the wonderful world of BL!

“H… uh?”

What is this feeling that is slowly starting to rise up from the depths of my chest? Keiki wondered. When he looked at Lolii right in front of him, he found himself unable to calm down, and his heart started racing.

“Lolii…”

“Hero-dono?”

“When I take a closer look at you like this… your face is actually quite cute.”

“Excuse me?”

“Let me see it some more.”

“Eh? Hold on a second! What are you talking about, Hero-dono?”

“Haha, there’s no need to be flustered. Seeing you acting like that makes me want to kiss you so much that I can’t help it.”

“Wah?! Wait, Hero-dono?!”

Keiki couldn’t suppress the overflowing love inside his chest. When he saw Lolii making that cute face, it made him want to rain down a flood of passionate kisses.

So what if the other person is a boy? Like I would care about that! This immoral feeling makes my heart race even faster!

Keiki found himself unable to hold back his desires. The only desire in his mind was one to exchange a kiss with Lolii. He put his hands on the boy’s cheeks and slowly brought his face closer—

“Would you wake up already?!”


“Ouch?!”

Lolii mercilessly brought his hand down on Keiki’s head, which caused Keiki to regain his sanity.

“Huh?! W-What was I doing just now…?”

“Hero-dono was really passionately trying to kiss me.”

“Eh, why would I do something that nightmarishly weird?”

“That’s my line. Did you suddenly change your tastes or something?”


“As if! It’s just… I suddenly heard a really weird voice in my head…”

“What did it say?”

“It said something like ‘Awaken to the wonderful world of BL!’ And after that, you just looked really charming and cute to me for some reason…”

“Ahh, so that’s what this is about.”

“Did you figure something out?”

“I finally understand what’s wrong with this city. This is brainwashing magic. All the residents here have had their hearts influenced by it.”

“So basically, somebody used magic to create gay couples all over the city?”

“Exactly. Still, it’s crazy hard to cast a spell like this over an entire city. This must be the work of the demon lord’s general that Sayuki-dono was talking about.”

“…Just what kind of benefit would there be to doing something like this?”

The city was overflowing with couples practicing forbidden love. What kind of reason would there be to create something like this?

“But it looks like the brainwashing doesn’t work on you, Lolii.”

“Because magic has no effect against me. That’s why the brainwashing was broken when I just hit you on the head like that. However, you’ll definitely fall victim to the spell again once some time passes.”

“I guess we don’t have the luxury of time, then…”

“You’ll eventually start to get excited and try to kiss me again.”

“Please don’t remind me…”

“Well, it’ll be fine as long as you keep touching me during our search for the general. If you do that, the brainwashing won’t have any effect on you, Hero-dono.”

“That means…”

In order to not be affected by the brainwashing magic, the measure that the Hero-dono took is—

“This is pretty tough on my mental health.”

“Yeah, I’d rather do this with a beautiful Onee-san.”

A few minutes later, Keiki and Lolii were being all buddy-buddy and friendly. They were walking through the street, hand in hand. Although there wasn’t anything he could do about it, this was an experience that Keiki wished he could have avoided.

“Lolii. Let’s hurry to where the general is. I don’t want to do this for any longer than is necessary.”

“No objections from me.”

–a–

It was fairly easy to spot the mayor’s manor. Since it was the residence of a powerful and influential person, it stood out very prominently from all the other buildings around it, leaving Keiki and Lolii with no need to ask any townsfolk where it was. There weren’t even any guards at the gate, so sneaking inside was an easy task, unlike how it was with Yuika.

“It seems like this place is outside the range of the brainwashing magic.”

“Alright then, let’s stop holding hands.”

FInally freed from that awkward situation, the two boys separated their hands and headed inside. When they had a look around, not only were there not any guards, but neither were there any other people working or living there. They walked through the hallway, silence all around…

“Found her.”

They spotted someone in the dead center of a wide room on the second floor. Sitting on a wooden chair was a girl with reddish brown hair and a side-tail hanging down on one side of her head. As Keiki expected, the girl looked exactly like Nanjou Mao. For some reason, she was wearing a female police officer uniform, and she was using a brush to paint a canvas in front of her.

“Are you Nanjou, the general of the demon lord?”

“Who are you two?”

Mao—or rather, Nanjou—raised her head in surprise at the sudden arrival of visitors. She narrowed her eyes.

“I’m Keiki. I’m the hero who was sent to this world in order to defeat the demon lord.”

“And I’m his partner, the holy sword Lolii~”

“The hero and the holy sword…?”

“We already know that you’re using some kind of brainwashing magic against the townsfolk. We’ve come here to stop that.”

“This fiendish bastard of a Hero-dono right here really enjoys spanking bad girls on the butt in order to discipline them. I really think it’d be better for you to just give up and swear to never do anything like this again.”

“Can you not make me sound like the bad guy here?! I’m the hero!”

He had disciplined Yuika like that, but in that case it was unavoidable. Keiki actually didn’t possess any sexual desires like that!

“…I see. I understand why you came here.”

Nanjou set the paint palette and the brush down on the table and stood up.

“However, it pains me to say it that your wish won’t be granted.”

“And why is that?”

“Just like you have your own goal, there is something that I have to do no matter what.”

“And what is your goal?”

“That should be plain as day. In order to create the finest piece of art imaginable, I have to see boys being lovey-dovey with each other, live and in person!”

“……Excuse me?”

“Hero-dono, what is this person saying?”

“I don’t have the slightest idea,” Keiki replied.

“Well, normal people like you probably wouldn’t understand. It might actually be better to show you the real thing.”

“The real thing?”

Nanjou picked up the canvas that she had been working on a second ago and turned it so that Lolii and Keiki had a clear view of it.

“Wha?! T-That’s…?!”

Drawn on the canvas was a scene with two young men loving each other gently as they lay on a bed. Of course, everyone should immediately understand what is meant by the phrase ‘loving each other.’ After all, both of the men were naked. Sweat ran down their muscular bodies, and while one looked aggressive and the other looked defensive, both of them showed expressions of pure joy and pleasure. The drawing looked so realistic that it felt like it might start moving any second. While they were admiring Nanjou’s skill at drawing, she gave them the final piece of missing information.

“This is the fine arts that I am pursuing! BL!” She proudly declared.

Nanjou was a pervert who specialized in everything relating to BL. A fujoshi, if you will.

“Of course she has the same stick even in a different world…”

“You used brainwashing magic on the entire town just to help you have material to draw…”

“Exactly. It was really tough preparing all that, you know. I induced the idea that the men in the town would only have feelings for the same gender, and I brainwashed the women to stay indoors all day. Just walking around the city, I can gather references and data left, right, and center.”

“How could you do something so terrifying?”

“You can say that again. Because of you, I Hero-dono almost stole my first kiss.”

“Eh, tell me more about that!”

“Don’t fixate on that… Just how addicted to BL are you?”

Nanjou’s eyes were sparkling after hearing Lolii’s comment, and Keiki had to take a step back out of bewilderment. Everything he had seen so far in this city, every little flirty action of the male couples, was all just for reference material for her own work.

Please don’t tell me that the Nanjou in my world is also a fujoshi…

Keiki would soon find out in the original source material—but that’s a different story.

“I can’t allow you to play with the hearts of other people on a whim! As the hero, it’s my duty to strike you down!”

“Just try it if you can! I’ll make you regret opposing my ideal world! To be precise, I’ll be drawing a wonderful BL picture of the two of you!”

“Please don’t!”

A BL picture together with Lolii of all people… just from imagining that, a shiver ran down Keiki’s spine. Even more so since Lolii actually looked so much like his friend Shouma.

“W-Well, I have the holy sword with me. I’ll just tell you up front. Lolii has the ability to nullify any magic you throw at me!”

“Hmph, not bad.”

“Eh? Just that? Shouldn’t you be a bit more taken aback than that?”

“Magic isn’t the only thing I have at my disposal, you know.”

While saying this, Nanjou put her hand behind her waist. When her hand reappeared from beside the holster that was peeking out, she was holding a handgun.

“If magic won’t work, then how about this?”

“Woah, guns are allowed?!”

“Don’t worry. They’re just rubber bullets, so you won’t die. However—”

Nanjou pulled the trigger on the gun, and the bullet flew past Keiki’s face, hitting the flower vase behind him. The vase exploded into pieces.

“—If the bullet hits you, it’ll hurt so much that you wish you were dead.”

“……”

When Keiki saw the insane damage caused by this rubber bullet, he swallowed his words. In the meantime, Nanjou pointed the gun at him and spoke up again.

“Now then—How about we start this competition?”

“Tactical retreat!”

Although she wasn’t using real bullets, a gun was still a gun. If it was some kind of offensive magic, Keiki might have been able to stand his ground thanks to Lolii, but bullets were too much for him to handle. Hence, he judged that a retreat would be more beneficial in the long run, and so he grabbed Lolii’s hand and dashed out of the room.

“I really didn’t expect her to just pull out a gun like that.”

“If we’re hit with that, we won’t get off with just a bruise, you know! What should we do, Hero-dono?”

“What else can we do but run away for now?! Woah, she’s still not done?!”

While they were running and talking about their plans, yet another bullet raced past the hero’s face.

“Tch, I missed… Hey, you hero! You’ll pay for stealing precious work time from me, you hear!”

“Nanjou-san, how about we talk this out?!”

“I don’t think she’ll just let us escape like that…”

The two boys were running for their lives. Chasing after them, gun in hand, was a demon of a police woman. From an outstander’s perspective, Keiki and Lolii would probably look like the perpetrators of some kind of crime.

I was wondering why she was cosplaying like that! It’s all to match the gun that she has!

While he was thinking that, a flurry of bullets raced past him. Since the girl behind them was running as well, her accuracy luckily wasn’t very good, but just the sound of the gunshots ringing out behind them inflicted fear and terror on the hero’s mind.

“Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah?!”

Keiki now had become desperate and frantic. Nanjou was scary, the gun was scary, and he really didn’t want to be turned into BL drawing material.

“Lolii! As soon as we get down to the first floor, we’re running for it!”

“Alright!”

They dashed down the hallway and finally arrived at the stairs.

“As if I’d let you get away!!!”

“?!”

The second Keiki thought that he was safe, something flew past him. It seemed to be the size of a baseball, and it started rolling down the stairs. Since he had seen this object in movies before, Keiki immediately realized what was happening.

“A hand grenade?!”

“Careful, Hero-dono!”

Even though he knew what was happening, there was nothing he could do about it. The instant Lolii’s scream rang out, the hand grenade exploded in front of their eyes.

“Wah, it’s bright!”

“My eyes! My eyeeeeeees!”

The blessing in disguise was that the hand grenade wasn’t meant to kill, but it was more like a stun grenade. Its purpose was to render the enemy immobile and unable to defend themselves. The two boys were unscathed, but their eyesight was not. However, they were currently at the top of the stairs. Now, what happens if you lose your sight while trying to run down a staircase?

“Augh, I can’t see where I’m going?! …Ah, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah?!”

“Hero-dono?! Are you okay—Wah, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah?!”

The natural result was that Keiki and Lolii lost their footing and fell down the stairs.

“…Lolii, that hurts…”

“Sorry, Hero-dono… I didn’t mean to…”

Keiki was lying upwards on the ground with Lolii on top of him. As the two of them were struggling to get off each other, a calm, almost cold voice called out to them.

“You two…”

“N-Nanjou?!”

When Keiki lifted his head, he saw Nanjou standing at the top of the stairs.

Ah… it’s all over. We’ve lost.

The winner of the game of tag had been decided. The hero and his companion wouldn’t be able to get up quickly enough. As soon as the girl used her gun, it would be game over. Accepting the fate that was about to befall him, the hero closed his eyes and resigned himself. With this, his mission to defeat the demon lord would end in failure. He would be unable to keep his promise to the Goddess, and he would never be able to return to his original world—Or so he thought.

“…Huh? She’s not attacking?”

No matter how much time passed, no more gunshots rang out. Keiki slowly and carefully opened his eyes.

“The innocent young man, unable to withstand his desires, pushes down the other boy! How indecent! No, how wonderful!”

““Huh?””

For some reason, Keiki found himself getting a really bad premonition from the girl’s words. So much so that he didn’t even bother trying to grasp the meaning behind what she was saying.

“Guhu… Guhuhuhuhuhu… After turning into human form, the holy sword inserts his Excalibur into the hero, who screams out as pleasure runs through his body. ‘Just how much do you have to make me suffer until you’re satisfied?!’”

“Can you not have weird fantasies with the two of us?!”

Also, why did she have to make Lolii the Excalibur?

“Nice…”

“Eh…?”

“Nice BL boys!!!”

Nanjou left these words behind and collapsed to the ground, a fountain of blood spurting out of her nose. Keiki and Lolii carefully got up and checked her condition. She seemed to be unconscious. She was lying in a puddle of blood with a bright smile on her face.

“It seems like she self-destructed.”

“That was one hell of a fight…”

The girl had been rendered unable to fight any longer because of her fantasies running rampant. Thus, the hero managed to defeat another one of the demon lord’s generals, and freed the townsfolk of the brainwashing magic that had been plaguing them.

*

After Nanjou had regained her senses, Keiki made her promise that she would never cause any trouble again. Once she agreed, the hero and holy sword stepped out of the feudal lord’s residence and gazed up at the already dark sky.

“Good grief, what a horrible day this was…”

“I mean, she asked us to be models for her BL drawings, and wouldn’t let us go when we said no…”

Since Nanjou’s enthusiasm towards BL was too overwhelming, the condition for her dispelling the brainwashing magic on the town was that Keiki and Lolii would become models for her BL drawings.

“In the end, we promised to do that once we defeat the demon lord, but…”

“Do you have any plans to keep that promise?”

“Of course not. I’ll be going straight back to my own world once the demon lord is defeated.”

“Figures~”

It’s not like he hated Lolii or anything of that sort, but ending up as BL material in itself was something he’d rather avoid.

“But our hard work has been rewarded, so it’s fine I guess.”

“Yeah, you’re right.”

Keiki looked once more out over the city, which was vastly different from before their assault on the residence. No more male couples were in sight. Normal man – woman couples filled the cafés, holding hands as they walked past Keiki. Since the brainwashing magic from Nanjou was gone, Cherry Boy had returned to its original state.

“It’s pretty late already, so let’s look for a place to spend the night.”

“Yeah, good idea. I’ve gotten a bit hungry, too—”

Just when Keiki stepped forward to follow Lolii…

“!”

“Hero-dono?”

The moment his right foot hit the ground, stinging pain ran up his leg.

“Were you hurt during our battle?”

“Yeah… I might have twisted my ankle when we fell down the stairs.”

“I think it’d be better to get this get checked at a hospital.”

“No, something like this is no problem. No worries.”

“No can do. There’s still one general left, and you have to be in top form when we go fight the demon lord. As your partner, I can’t overlook any injury no matter how small it may be.”

“You worry too much, Lolii. But alright, fine.”

“Should I lend you my shoulder until we get to the hospital?”

“I’d gratefully accept your help, but the difference in height between us might make that impossible.”

“Ah I see, then—”

Lolii used his transformation powers and grew to the same size as Keiki. After doing that, he looked exactly like the Shouma that Keiki knew so well.

“There’s no problem now, right?”

“You’re as useful of a sword as ever.”

They made their way to the hospital. Keiki limped along the street with Lolii lending him a shoulder until they made it to their destination.

“That sure looks like a worn-out hospital…”

“But I heard that the doctor here is very skilled. And the nurse seems to be really cute.”

“Now that’s what I like to hear.”

Being treated by a cute nurse would make all the hardship of fighting Nanjou worth it in the end.

“I’d really like a big-breasted Onee-san nurse.”

“It feels really weird for you to say that when you’re looking like that…”

“Huh?”

The Shouma of his own world would never say anything like that. The dichotomy was too great for Keiki to handle.

“Well, I agree with you that a big-breasted Onee-san nurse would be nice.”

Just standing outside while talking like this wouldn’t get them anywhere. Lolii opened the front door, and inside was what looked to be a waiting room.

“Excuse me! Is someone here?!”

“—Yeeees!”

The long-awaited nurse poked her head out from the depths of the room.

“I’m sorry. The doctor is currently out on a house visit, so could I ask you to wait a short while?”

The angel in a white robe looked apologetic as she spoke.

“Ohh, she’s just as cute as the rumours said.”

“Y-Yeah…”

Lolii was admiring the adorable nurse, who had short hair that reached down to her shoulders. Keiki’s reaction however was less admiration and more like resignation. After all—

“I am the registered nurse of this hospital, Mizuha. It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance.”

“So this time it’s a Mizuha look-alike…”

The nurse standing in front of them was an exact clone of Keiki’s little sister, Mizuha. Since this sort of thing had happened all the time after Keiki arrived in this world, he was not terribly shocked to run into someone who looked exactly like his little sister. However, in this case, it was slightly different from before…

“……”

“Mizuha… san?”

Even though it was supposed to have been their first meeting, the girl was practically staring at Keiki.

“Are you… Nii-san?”

“Eh?”

“No, it really is Nii-san!”

Mizuha’s face lit up, and she jumped at Keiki, embracing him.

“Nii-san, I wanted to meet you so badly!”

“Ehhh?! What is this about?!”

Even though this was supposed to be a different world, and she should only look like Mizuha…

“Umm… I can just leave if I’m in the way?”

“Lolii?!”

Keiki’s partner, apparently reading too much into the atmosphere, stepped out of the waiting room. Now that it had come to this, Keiki had to confirm his suspicions.

“Umm… you know who I am?”

“Of course I do. How could I ever forget my Nii-san?”

“………”

Was that really the case?

Don’t tell me… did she come here from our original world? To chase after her older brother who died from asphyxiation?

Thinking about it some more, Keiki decided that it would be impossible. Meanwhile, Mizuha started speaking while still clinging to him.

“You just went missing like that, and now I finally meet you again in a place like this…”

“Went missing?”

“Yeah! Around one year ago, you just disappeared without any warning.”

“Ahhh, so that’s what it was…”

It seemed like there was even a Keiki look-alike in this world. And the Mizuha and Keiki of this world were also siblings. This world’s Keiki disappeared, and Mizuha had seen the current Keiki and mistaken him for her ‘Nii-san.’ When Keiki arrived at this conclusion, he decided that he couldn’t allow this misunderstanding to go on any longer. He put his hands in Mizuha’s shoulders and gently pushed her away.

“…Nii-san?”

“Listen… this really hurts me to say, but I’m not your Nii-san.”

“Eh…?”

“Um… I came from a different world, and I’m tasked with defeating the demon lord.”

“No way…”

“Do you understand?”

“Nii-san… Did you catch chuunibyou while you were gone?”

“No I didn’t! I might have twisted my ankle, but my head is still functioning properly!”

Keiki quickly tried to clear up the misunderstanding.

“A-Anyway. It might be difficult, but you have to believe me when I say that I am not your Nii-san!”

“That’s a lie. I wouldn’t mistake my Nii-san.”

“But, I’m really not…”

“As if I would… mistake you…”

“Ugh…”

When he saw that the girl about to break out in tears, a sharp pain stabbed Keiki’s heart. She might look just like the Mizuha he knew, his own little sister, but she wasn’t. However, watching the girl cry in front of him would be too hard on his heart. He couldn’t really explain it, but his heart was screaming that he couldn’t make her cry.

“W-Well, I just didn’t know how to act around you since it’s been so long! Sorry, Nii-san was just joking!”

“I thought so! Really, you’re such a teaser, Nii-san!”

“You sure became a cutie, Mizuha! That nurse outfit really suits you!”

“Really? Nii-san is praising me… I’m really happy.”

Mizuha-san lowered her head bashfully when her older brother praised her. In response, a feeling of guilt assaulted the fake older brother’s heart even more than before.

“Ah, that reminds me. You came here because of a foot injury, right, Nii-san?”

“Ahh yeah, I fell down some stairs today, see.”

“Then you can just spend the night here. I’ll explain the situation to the doctor, so I’ll cook something for you after all this time! Okay? Let’s do that.”

“Ahh, yeah, that sounds good.”

She must be really happy to finally be reunited with her older brother who had disappeared. A fire was burning in the angel’s eyes since she was now able to take care of her older brother. While watching this happy creature in front of him, Keiki thought to himself, Well. You know, I can’t just break her heart like this.

Keiki decided to play the role of the older brother until the next morning, when they had planned on leaving the town. That was the mission this time around. The hero now faced his greatest challenge yet after entering this new world.
