In the end, neither of my parents learnt the truth, however, as my dad said they were worried about me being involved in the war so its probably to be expected .
I’ll let a bit of time pass and they should be able to listen calmly the next time . As long as my mom learns the truth since my dad’s easy to persuade .
No need to rush it . Let’s wait for the right time .
“What are you going to do?” (Sasha)
“First off I’m going to eat the mushroom gratin before it gets cold . ” (Arnos)
“You know…………” (Sasha)
Sasha looks at me in amazement while Misha serves out the mushroom gratin .
“Is this enough?” (Misha)
“Excellent . ” (Arnos)
I receive a plate from Misha and start eating my mushroom gratin .
“Fumu . Nothing beats this after stopping a war . ” (Arnos)
Misha looks down and seems lost in thought .
“Don’t restrict it like that . I don’t want you talking like that event will be an everyday thing . ” (Sasha)
Misha nods at Sasha’s words .
“Hmm? That reminds me, do you have any alcohol?” (Eleonor)
Eleonor looks around the table at us .
“At times like this, you have a victory drink right?” (Eleonor)
“Unfortunately, neither of my parents seem to drink so there’s none in the house . ” (Arnos)
“Wah? How healthy . Well then . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor draws a magic formation and pulls 3 bottles out of it .
“Ta-da! A speciality of Gairadeite called Holy Dimira . It’s delicious” (Eleonor)
“Hoh? How thoughtful . ” (Sasha)
Sasha’s eyes sparkle with greed .
“Then I’ll pour a lot for you Sasha-chan . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor fills up Sasha’s glass with the Holy Dimira .
“Who’s next?” (Eleonor)
Eleonor filled everyone’s glass .
“Shall we have a toast?” (Eleonor)
Everyone picks up their glass .
“Lead the toast?” Misha mutters .
“It can only be you . ” Ray tells me .
“I see . ” (Arnos)
I raise my glass .
“Thanks to the hard work of everyone here the war between Deiruheido and Azeshion was avoided . There’s still some troublesome issues left, but for now, let’s forget about all that and get drunk . Its a victory for our demon king forces . ” (Arnos)
Everyone smiles while watching me .
“Kanpai . ” (Arnos)
I down my glass in one .
It’s really delicious . That taste after defending the peace is really special .
“Are you okay drinking all that in one go Arnos-kun? Holy Dimira is really strong . ” (Eleonor)
“What? For me this is no different to water . ” (Arnos)
“Wow that’s amazing . Want another glass?” (Eleonor)
Eleonor shows me the bottle .
“Of course . ” (Arnos)
Eleonor fills my glass .
“Hey Arnos, don’t get too carried away and end up drunk . ” Sasha says to me with a red face while trying to pick a fight .
Her tongue doesn’t seem to be moving quite how she wants it to .
“Aren’t you the one who’s drunk?” (Arnos)
“Unfortunately for you I’m the witch of ruin . I won’t lose to alcohol . ” (Sasha)
While talking to me Sasha moves closer to Eleonor .
“Do you have any other alcohol?” (Sasha)
“I’ve got wine . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor drew the formation again and took out a bottle of wine .
Why’s she carrying so much alcohol around with her?
“This is great Arnos! I’ll show you how far I can go and not get drunk!” (Sasha)
While loudly declaring that to me she lifts the bottle of wine and bottle of holy Dimira up in both hands .
“This is a secret art of the Necrons . Fusion magic Holy Wine !” (Sasha)
Sasha pours the wine and Holy Dimira into a glass .
Isn’t she totally drunk? No matter how strong the Holy Dimira is, getting this drunk after one glass is shocking .
After using her newly made Sasha raises the glass to her mouth .
“Stop that . ” (Arnos)
I take the glass away from Sasha .
“Haaa why? Are you saying I’ll get drunk?” (Sasha)
“Get? No matter how you look at it you are drunk . ” (Arnos)
“I’m not drunk! Honestly . I even showed you fusion magic . ” (Sasha)
You wouldn’t normally speak like this .
“I’m not drunk!” (Sasha)
“Okay, okay . It’s really tasty so can I have some?” (Arnos)
“Nn? Is it? If you want it Arnos I’ll give it to you . ” (Sasha)
While thinking about what to do with this problem I drank the .
“………… . . ”
Terrible . I’ve never tasted any alcohol this bad, not even 2000 years ago .
These two things must never be mixed .
“I’ll show you the Necron secret arts again!” (Sasha)
Sasha starts pouring the Dimira and wine into a glass again .
“What are you doing Sasha?” (Arnos)
“I’m going to get you drunk Arnos . ” (Sasha)
Sasha finishes her and brings the glass to her lips .
“Your words and actions don’t match . ” (Arnos)
I take the glass away from her again .
“Uuu…… Arnos won’t let me drink……” (Sasha)
Sasha starts to sulk .
“You’re a troublesome fellow . ” (Arnos)
A glass of water is held out to me by Misha .
“Here . Drink this liquor . It’s good . ” (Arnos)
I handed the water to Sasha who took it in both hands and stared at it .
“This liquor looks like water . ” (Sasha)
Because it is .
“It’s delicious . ” (Arnos)
Sasha drinks about half and cocks her head .
“…… . It is water after all…… . ” (Sasha)
“Drink it more slowly and taste it . It’s very good liquor . If you can’t tell by the taste then you must be drunk . ” (Arnos)
Sasha drinks the water slowly and tastes it before nodding as if understanding something .
“Yeah, its really good liquor . What’s it called?” (Sasha)
“Demon king sake . It’s a liquor that not everyone can taste . ” (Arnos)
“I like it . ” (Sasha)
Sasha takes her time drinking it like its high-class liquor .
“Sasha is a bad drunk . ” Misha whispers to me .
“So it seems . ” (Arnos)
Misha holds her glass with both hands and keeps drinking from it .
“You okay Misha?” (Arnos)
“Using Detoxification . ” (Misha)
I see . Because alcohol can be classed as a poison it’s removed by the spell .
“Hey, that’s a no-no Misha-chan . Using detoxification magic when drinking is no fun . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor raises her finger and reproves her .
Misha blinked as if embarrassed .
“Alcohol makes me go all light and fluffy . ” (Misha)
“That’s fine . Light and fluffy is cute . ” (Eleonor)
Misha looks at me .
“First time I’ve heard that . ” (Arnos)
“Hey Arnos-kun . You should have said it was cute . ” (Eleonor)
“I’d be in trouble if I was drunk and an emergency happened . You don’t need to force someone weak with alcohol to get drunk . I don’t know what it means to become cute with alcohol but if they are already cute they don’t need the power of alcohol . ” (Arnos)
“Wow how boring . Such a rejection from the demon king . ” (Eleonor)
Eleonor laughs . She doesn’t seem any different but I’m sure she’s drunk .
“Hey Misha-chan . Because its peaceful you can get drunk . Because Arnos-kun isn’t used to peace we need to teach him . ” (Eleonor)
Misha looks at me for a moment then at Eleonor .
“… . Try to get drunk… . . ” (Misha)
Misha began taking big gulps of the Holy Dimira and her face gradually turns red .
“Arnos . ” (Misha)
“You okay?” (Arnos)
Misha nods .
“Have you become peaceful?” (Misha)
Misha points at herself .
Ahh, you’re totally drunk .
“Feel foggy . ” (Misha)
“Try to keep it in moderation . ” (Arnos)
“…… . . Nn… . . ” (Misha)
Following my words, Misha starts taking just little sips at a time .
“What are you drinking Misha? Is it delicious?” (Sasha)
Sasha unsteadily totters over .
“Tasty . ” (Misha)
“That liquor . Can I have some too?” (Sasha)
Misha looks at me .
“Let Sasha have some more demon king sake . ” (Arnos)
“Nn . ” (Misha)
Misha fetched Sasha some more water .
“Here Sasha . ” (Misha)
“Oh there was still some demon king sake left . Thank you . ” (Sasha)
Sasha drinks the water with great relish .
On the opposite side of the table, Ray finished off a bottle of Holy Dimira .
“You don’t seem to be drinking . Don’t you like alcohol?” (Ray)
Ray addresses Misa who still has a full glass of Dimira .
“Ahaha . I’m not sure . I accidentally drank some as a child and even now those memories make me feel sick so ever since then I tried not to drink……” (Misa)
“Yeah might be better to not overdo it . ” (Ray)
Ray empties his glass .
“Shall I pour you some more?” (Misa)
Misa takes the bottle of Holy Dimira and refills Rays glass .
“Do you like drinking Ray-san?” (Misa)
“Not really but I kind of miss it . A long time ago there were days when I couldn’t sleep so I drank . ” (Ray)
Misa’s face darkens . She pursed her lips as if she wanted to say something and looked down .
Ray closed his mouth . Did he understand what Misa was thinking?
After a few seconds of silence, he speaks .
“Misa-san . ” (Ray)
At that moment Misa drank the glass of Dimira in one go .
Ray looked taken aback .
“… . . Errm, are you okay drinking that much in one go… . ?” (Ray)
Misa stood up vigorously as Ray looked at her anxiously .
Her face was pale .
“… . . I’m sorry but……I really shouldn’t drink after all… . . ” (Misa)
Misa held her hand over her mouth and ran outside .
