Chapter 264 Winners and Losers ⑤
“But well, if you think about it, it is just the beginning. Because Cry-san has just picked a head-on fight with the world’s largest criminal organization!” (Sytry)
“A lot of enemies…… Are coming?” (Luke)
“I am sure they will!” (Sytry)
I intentionally ignore Luke and Sytry’s conversation and head for the city’s exit.
There are too many people in this world who pick on fights that no one is selling. Adding one or two additional enemies means nothing for us 《Strange Grief (Nageki no Borei)》 as we have so many enemies, but………… Isn’t this time really bad?
It has finally calmed down a bit recently, but should I not go out for a while again? On this side, you have a poor Hunter who can’t even detect the slightest presence of a person. Even if I am in a comfortable state, it will become a burden if I have to keep on the lookout for an attacker who may or may not appear.
When it is as powerful as a fox Phantom, then I can kind of recognize its presence tho’……
I guess there’s nothing left to do in this city anymore……………… Right?
As I was thinking this, I suddenly spotted a familiar face in the crowd on the main street, and I involuntarily held my head.
Walking along the edge of the street as if swept away by the crowd was the not-so-bad fox――『Sora』 of the (Temporary) Fox Mask Fan Club.
Her clothes had changed from her sacred white vestments to something that would not look out of place among the people in the city, and a hat hid her long hair, but there was no mistaking her for anyone else.
In a sense, she may be the only person I have directly inconvenienced in my involvement this time.
As for whether it is purely my fault or not, I think Sora who has mistaken me for their Leader and tried to cover it up, is probably to blame as well, but at least it was my fault that she ended up frying Aburaage.
I was inclined to ignore her and leave the city, but that would have been irresponsible.
I even had Sytry prepare a kitchen, so I should at least check the end result. If not, I should at least say hello.
Unsure of what to say, I raise my hand with a full smile.
“Soraaa, how are you doing?” (Cry)
Sora shuddered and looked at me. While I was wondering what happened, her eyes widened and her mouth drew a straight line.
And then, Sora took a deep breath and came up to us, *kyorokyoro* looking around, and held up one finger to her mouth.
“Shhhhhh, Boss――No…… Cry-san. I am not Sora anymore.” (Sora)
“Eh!? ………… What happened?” (Cry)
I opened my eyes at what she unexpectedly said. And Sora answered quietly.
“………… I don’t know exactly what is going on either, but I was cut off. It seems that there was an investigation to know who is responsible for that incident, and a civil war broke out――The Bosses are fighting each other, and it’s a mess! It’s a big mess! I am sure that the organization will not be restored to its original state even if things settle down. The whole area, including Zebrudia, is now a blank area. We can no longer contact the headquarters anymore. We don’t even know who our allies are and who our enemies are. I, too…… Was also fired from my position as a “Miko (Priestess)”.” (Sora)
“Oh…… Ohhhh…………?” (Cry)
I don’t really get it, but apparently, something terrible happened.
They may still be the quiet ones, but nothing good will happen if you have the word fox in your name.
“Gaff also gathered as many acquaintances as he could before the lines of communication were severed, but being cut off completely from the organization is the worst pattern imaginable, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Or rather, there is nothing more we can do. Gaff is completely overwhelmed. What do we do?” (Sora)
Maybe she was pretending to be strong earlier, but now she told me this with a face that looked like she would cry at any moment.
Even if you ask me what to do, I have no idea.
I frowned and remained silent for a while, but as Sora’s expression did not change, I had no choice but to sigh.
“……………… I don’t really get it, but if you’ve been cut off and have nothing left to do, why don’t you go ahead and make and sell Inari Sushi Bento as we planned? That’s much better than an organization that would fire you like that………… Probably.” (Cry)
Even a Phantom of an ultra-high-level Treasure Shrine has been fascinated by it. You never know what will happen in life. It’s a good idea to sell the idea. Unexpectedly, it might sell?
Sora froze with an expression that looks like she was about to cry. I grabbed Sytry’s arm, who was waiting quietly behind me without interfering, but had a somewhat itchy look on her face, and offered it to her.
Here, I’ll lend you Sytry…… Although, you have to return it when you are done using it.
Finally, I would add one piece of advice. I won’t be coming to this city anymore, so this is my parting gift.
“Ahhhhh, it would be better if you don’t put the word fox in the name of your store. Unless you want to get in trouble.” (Cry)
