In this country of Petadaus, the existence of evil dragons is rampant and their subordinates are rampaging everywhere.
An Evil Dragon is located in a place called the Holy Land, but it has been ignored because the forces to defeat it aren’t ready yet. Zig’s mission is to defeat that very dragon.
If that happens, the name of “Zig” will be solidified and engraved in history.
“Sertina, take control.”
“Ok ☆ Flame Shoot! ☆”
A powerful fireball hit the giant worm. The upper part of the worm was engulfed with fire and smoke, but the giant enemy looked at me, with its tentacles.
So it didn’t die, huh…
I’ll be glad if I can have one under my command. How many Evil Dragons are out there?
A subordinate rushed at Sertina, who was weak up close. Immediately, Zig activates his skill, “Awareness Induction” and shows the enemy attack trajectory.
In that moment, the subordinates suddenly started spacing out, and stopped their assault.
Awareness Induction isn’t as complicated as “Manipulation”. However, it can be dangerous depending on how you use it.
That’s probably the reason Zig is that strong.
I stepped in front of her and ran my blade across the torso of the subordinate. A green bodily fluid spurted out of the wound and the enemy twisted in pain.
It’s always a good thing to keep your blade sharp.
“Good job, Aid! I’ll take care of the rest! Haaaa!!”
Zig cut the head of a subordinate.
When we returned to the inn, Zig slumped in a chair in the lobby. I sat down in the chair next to him, and Sertina sat in the chair across from him.
The lobby was spacious for a luxury inn, and they seemed to have a café service.
“If you hadn’t come with us, we wouldn’t have been able to take them all down.”
“I only worked as much as you paid me for…”
“Zig is a tsundere~☆ he’s happy about it ☆”
“You are so noisy, Sertina.”
Zig put his feet on the table and closed his eyes. “Wake me up in an hour”.
This is a perfect opportunity. It’s a great time to absorb.
But Sertina is in the way.
I’d be grateful if she leaves.
“I’ll take care of him, you can go wherever you want.”
“I don’t have anything to do ☆ so I’ll stay here until dinner ☆ ”
Can’t you see that you’re interrupting me? I want to be alone with him, you know.
“Ah! Look at this ☆”
She took a book and handed it to me.
A cookbook? There are a lot of ingredients I’m not familiar with.
I flipped through it, checking the recipes and handed it back to her.
“This is the book to grab Zig’s stomach ☆”
“There’s a lot of things to do in this book. It’s good.”
“So, I thought I could ask you to taste some food samples ☆”
Ah. I let out a scream.
The food she makes is spicy. She puts an unbelievable amount of spices in her food.
Thanks to her, my stomach and rear end were in a miserable state the other day.
That was the most terrifying experience I had had in a while.
“I think imposing your preferences on others may cause them to dislike you…”
“I’m sure you’re right, but I’ll go easy on the spices☆”
She opened her book and began to decide what to make next.
I looked around to make sure everything was okay.
Then, I extended a tentacle from my arm and stuck a tube into Zig, who was next to me.
I want to absorb most of his status and abilities at once, but that wouldn’t allow me to have fun. It’s better to take it slowly and slowly. That way, I can plunge him deeper into despair.
I need him to unseal the Evil Eye of Lure.
But I need to be careful, I don’t want him to realize what I’m doing.
So there’s only one thing to steal. The Awareness Induction skill.
With that, most problems can be solved.
Even if I’m kicked out, it would be enough for me even if I only got that skill. Hehehe.
“I think he’ll be happy if I make this ☆”
“Ah, yeah, I guess.”
Before Sertina turned her gaze to me, I quickly retracted my tentacles.
I took the book and looked over the contents.
“Is not bad. I think Zig will be happy.”
“I’m going to practice this so I can become Zig’s wife ☆”
“Remember what I told you, no spices.”
“I won’t add spices ☆”
I’ll be the one who’ll be trying that? I think it’s a necessary sacrifice.
Suddenly, I remembered that red dish.
It ‘s okay. This time it’ll be normal.
Be patient, Sain. You can get through this.
“I’m going to get the ingredients, so watch Zig for me ☆”
“… got it.”
After watching her go, I opened my status information and checked. There was a text of “Awareness Induction”.
I rolled on the floor in agony.
This is totally different! My mouth is burning!!
“Ehh? ☆ I’m sure I putted a little of spice ☆”
I took the glass and drank it in one shot.
I calmed down for now. I can’t believe I’m so upset about that.
My lips are twitching and my tongue is numb.
“It’s strange ☆ I made it exactly as it was written ☆”
Sertina opened the book and groaned.
Are you sure that you really followed it? I noticed before I ate it that it was slightly red.
This woman… She put spices on it.
“… Why did you add spices?”
“Eh? ☆ I put a little bit as an accent ☆”
Idiot. An accent is just a pinch. What size winch is on this?
I used my fork to flip the inside of the dish.
There were a lot of bright red spices in there.
What’s the “spicy standard” for you?
A little is a little. You want to kill me?
“Anyway, I made it, so please eat it all ☆”
“No, I mean…”
“Go back to your seat ☆”
I sat back in my chair and my body started to shake.
No… I don’t want to eat anymore.
My instincts are telling me not to.
“Here is your fork ☆”
I was forced to hold the fork.
This is a torture. Make this stop, please.
“Aid is a good guy… I wish you were Zig ☆”
“… If I eat this, will you go on a date with me?”
“Well, I can think about it, but only if you eat it ☆”
I break out into a cold sweat as I look at the food.
This is not funny. But you can consider this hell as a necessary expense.
Fearfully, I put the food in my mouth.
I managed to finish it, and I was in the mood to cry.
“… I ate it all.”
“Thanks for your effort ☆ But, will this be enough for Zig?”
“I’ve told you many times, spicy food isn’t for everyone. Especially since Zig likes sweet things, think about more flavors, spicy things aren’t for everyone.”
“I see… I see… I’ll take note ☆”
Sertina wrote what I said in her memo.
I told you what before, you know. Are you stupid?
Don’t joke with me
I’m going to punish you, silly.
Fuu… take it easy. It ‘s over. I’m done with that spice hell.
“Let’s go on a date sometime ☆”
“I wanted to thank you for your advice, so I’ll take you to a place ☆ a great spicy food restaurant ☆”
