―― Several days after Arina and Yuuki destroyed Glenn’s ambitions.
Light shined down on the underground passage.
There was a gaping hole open on the ceiling, turning into rubble.
Underneath that hill made by the fake Marquis’ fist, there lay the remains of a pair of a man and a woman.
Splash, splash, something liquid splashed down there.
There were damaged beakers in the debris, the liquid came from there.
It was the ‘something randomly mixed’ made by Arina for Glenn to drink.
A lacerated arm thrust out from the mountain of rubble.
Slowly, one by one, the arm removed the obstacles, bringing its body out.
It was Sister Nikka.
She groaned bitterly, her whole body covered in Arina’s fluid. She began to move, crawling on the floor, but she soon ran out of strength and could no longer move.
Then from the liquid clinging to her body, the ‘bugs’, visible by the naked eye, wriggled and entered Nikka’s body through her wounds and holes.
Nikka started moving once again.
After a long, long time, Nikka arrived at a room Arina did not notice.
It was of similar make to the cell where Marquis Isky was kept, but there was something enshrined inside.
It was a ring. A silver ring decorated with a grotesque design of skulls and snakes.
…… The tragedy called the Great Demon Queen War was Glenn and Nikka’s put-up job to begin with, but there is one thing baffling about it.
Even if Rosé was manipulated to play the part of the Demon Queen, how in the world did she defeat legions of troops and strike fear into the world?
That is an impossible feat for Rosé if she were to stay a princess.
The solution to that conundrum is this cursed magic item, the ‘Bracelet of Ruin‘.
It gives the wearer power equal to the hero Bacchus, and in return it would drive the wearer insane, a fearsome magical device. Nikka already had it prepared.
“Rosé…. unforgivable… I won’t forgive you…”
As she voiced her grudges, Nikka picked the bracelet up.
The bugs crawling all over her body reacted to the bracelet and swarmed.
Nikka put it on her own right arm.
The Bracelet of Ruin let off a dim light and the bugs jumped into Nikka’s mouth one after the other.
“Awff… awhfff! A, amazing power…!!”
Nikka stood up and held out her right arm over her head.
“Please wait Glenn-sama! I will drag Rosé off her throne and show you how I create a country for you! Fufufu, ahahaha, Isky Kingdom will reign eternal! Fufufu —— fuhehehehe!!”
Having too much power in her hand, Nikka punched a wall.
The hard prison wall crumbled like wet clay.
“Uhehehe, Rosé, Arina, Yuuki…. I’ll kill you! You lot who did horrible things to Glenn-sama, I’ll kill you all!! Once I kill you Glenn-sama will be happy! I’ll create Glenn-sama’s country! Uhi, uhihihihi!!”
This is what they call a mad dance, Nikka danced in a trance with an abnormal expression, then suddenly.
“Ahihi — awfh,”
“……. I still can’t control the power…. But soon…. I’ll rain divine punishment on them….”
—— In the history changed by Arina who held in her hand a mysterious power, a threat greater than that is soon to come upon Yuuki and Arina.
Their adventure in the yet unknown world continues.
