Idle Talk: Distorting
It’s been half a year since their summoning to Mildgard. Akira, Yamato, and Akane have been growing favorably.
If compared to the average adventurers and knights in this world, that growth potential is likely eye-opening. In fact, Sydnia’s Pope Warvaal, as well as the officials of the Light God Faith were observing the summoned heroes with satisfaction.
Whatever the case, the heroes are precious personnel that can’t be increased. The cause for why the summoning magic circle is nonfunctional is still unknown.
「Akira-sama, where would you like to have a good time today?」
「Will you go outside? Or stay in your room again?」
「Let’s seeee, how about we go to town today?」
The two young men are being supplied with women. Ecstatic from the cajoling, Akira and Yamato were adeptly being recruited for a war of aggression titled the Holy War.
「Aren’t you two even a little bit embarrassed?」
With cold eyes, Akane reproached Akira and Yamato.
「What’s this Akane, you want us to have sex with you too? It’s an OK anytime for me.」
「Yeah, if Akane asks then I’m okay sleeping with her too.」
Smiling vulgarly, Akira and Yamato looked up and down Akane’s body as if they were licking her with their eyes.
「You guys are disgusting, I don’t want to talk to you anymore. From now on, unless it’s absolutely necessary, don’t talk to me!」
Akane turned her back to them and left.
「Kukuku, Akane’s so touchy.」
「Hehehe, she’s probably on her period.」
The two young men who were college students were methodically being fed unilateral information and easy women by Sydnia so the two had easily become the church’s yes-men. It would have been fine if it was just that, but they naturally accepted the concept of human supremacy, and although they were supposed to have been summoned to defeat the Demon Lord, they didn’t think to question the war of aggression called the Holy War against Valkyra kingdom and Lomaria kingdom.
Only Akane, who has been suspicious of Sydnia Empire and the Light God Church since the summoning, was looking for a chance to escape from this country.
Henceforth, it was decided that the three heroes would go on an expedition to the dungeon at the area bordering of Lomaria Kingdom and Triaria Kingdom. The plan was to train the three heroes thoroughly then, together with Triaria Kingdom, invade Lomaria Kingdom or Valkyra Kingdom.
「This is terrible, Norn-sama!」
In the divine realm, an angel came to Norn hurriedly.
「What is it? Panicking in such a way, compose yourself a little.」
「This is really terrible! You are aware of the deity of the Light God Faith in Sydnia Empire and Triaria Kingdom, are you not?」
「The imaginary one they call Anat, correct?」
Norn said that worshipping a nonexistent god is a common occurrence in this world.
「It has been a target of worship for many years, and although it still has not gained divinity, it has become an evil spirit.」
「Hmmmm, if it’s just an evil spirit, then there shouldn’t be a problem?」
As Norn says, it will take many years for an evil spirit to gain divinity. And even if it did gain divinity, growing to a lesser god is its limit. To Norn, Mildgard’s god of creation, it is no different to trash. It will be lower than even the angel, Norn’s divine messenger.
「If this were an ordinary country then there would be no problems. However, this country was the perpetrator of the hero summoning and the foolish country started a war because of their desire to do as they please to the beautiful elves. War may occur in the continent with these countries involved.」
「Haa, that may happen. Even an evil spirit has that much power.」
It doesn’t mean that an evil spirit can personally and directly cause something though. It can’t create miracles or give divine blessing either. However, the evil spirit can distort the souls of people and countries that believe in it. Specifically, to gradually distort people’s consciousness to be more belligerent, and more degenerate. Furthermore, it can increase the numbers of powerful monsters. There is also the possibility that harm would befall the whole continent.
「But I am unable to interfere directly. Mildgard may collapse if I were to do that.」
If Goddess Norn, the god of creation as well as the main deity of the Genesis Faith, personally eliminates the evil spirit, the effect it would have on lower world would be too great.
「Haa~, that’s true. Would you rather reset Mildgard?」
「What are you yapping on about? Why should I, the goddess of creation, imitate a god of destruction?」
A god of destruction doesn’t exist in Mildgard. Dare to say, Norn is both creation and destruction.
「It is alright, Takumi-kun will definitely do something about it.」
「Ah, Norn-sama’s favorite child? If I remember correctly, he is the child with a body personally created by Norn-sama, and was even granted excessive divine protection.」
「I am getting the feeling that your manner of speaking was quite thorny, but Takumi-kun was a jackpot, right?」
「Well, I would not deny that. I hope Norn-sama’s favorite will save the children of Mildgard.」
Saying so, Norn and the angel peered into the lower world.

- Author typo: Should be university students, but says high school students.[↩]
- Should I use lower / mortal world? Since Norn is at the Divine Realm.[↩]
