Chapter 51 – Oni, Fay, Fay [E]

[Baragi Pov] 

I’ve seen everything from inside this man. I’ve witnessed the moment the woman named Aliceia unscrewed her head from her shoulders.

A descendant of calamity, although it was a possible story… it lacked credibility in my eyes. Although I had no idea about the truth, it seemed the woman named Aliceia had been on the receiving end of fear and misery in her past. 

That thing was removed completely… Well, that was a good thing, but… 

What Fay did was too crude. He said things like he would protect her forever, yet he left her alone, was he an idiot? 

I guess he really was an idiot, and he would definitely get stabbed someday. He shouldn’t be allowed to complain when that happens. 

Really, both those women named Aliceia and Mordred were crazy. They actually committed something while Fay was sleeping after all. 

However… It was a particularly deep sleep today. Why Fay didn’t wake up while that was done to him? I didn’t understand. 

To think he was attacked while he was sleeping… I don’t care at all about the activities between a man and a woman, but… 

Fay’s body was mine. After I took it over, I would be the one who used it. It sure felt irritating seeing my Fay’s body being used as they liked in the middle of the night to satisfy their desires. 

In the end, I had to watch it until morning. Then, Fay woke up and left the house to train. Aliceia and Mordred also went with him. 

“Oi, you descendant of the devil!!” 

“Hurry up and disappear.”


Someone threw mud at Aliceia. Before it hit her, Fay moved as if protecting her, the mud hitting him instead and making his clothes dirty. 

“…That person soiled Fay’s clothes… let’s kill them…” 

“I don’t give a damn. Let’s go training.”

“If Fay says so…”

“I think there’s no problem in killing them though.”

“You’re right. I think so.”

Just now, they would have definitely drawn their swords if Fay didn’t stop them… they even already deployed magic… they really love him to a dangerous degree… 

What should I do about this guy…? He would be knocked unconscious during his training with Mordred anyway, so I guess I should ask when that happened… 

Ah, he fainted.


“Oi, you.” 

“Ah, hello.”

“It’s not hello here.”

Fay greeted me with an innocent face. Did this guy really understand his situation? 

“I guess you’re having a hard time.” 

“Hard time? With what?”

“You don’t have to pretend to be strong. It’s about you being exiled. You’re being hated by everyone in the city, right? Kukuku, for me, your misfortune is something to be happy about.”

It would be easier to take over his body if his mind was disturbed after all. No matter what, being forced into exile and exclusion must be painful after all. 

“Ah~ you mean exile!” 

“You look happy about it…”

“I didn’t read web novels much, but they were often depicted when a protagonist got exiled, it seemed they would grow afterward!!”

“W-web novel?”

“Being exiled was something akin to a gateway to success for the protagonist, I guess? Anyway, the protagonist would achieve awakening after being exiled most of the time!! Well, I guess things would work out for me in the end. I am the protagonist after all!!”

“…Y-you, you must be crazy, right!! Why are you happy about being exiled!?”

“It’s because I received another category as an exiled protagonist!! It means a new protagonist has come into being within me! Happy birthday, the new protagonist within me!!!”

He was an idiot, he must be crazy in the head… It made me frustrated somehow. If only I could think like he did back when I was betrayed in the past… 

“Well, that’s fine… Aside from that, don’t let your body be used as they like.” 

“What do you mean?”

“I mean the thing that happened when you’re asleep…”

“When I was asleep?”

“…T-that’s… Don’t make me, a woman, say it!! You fool!!”

“What do you mean?”

“You found something off when you woke up, right?”

“Ah~ now that you mention it, my mouth did feel wet, and my clothes were taken off for some reason.”

“…Just ask those two about it. You should understand by doing that.”

“Fu~hn, okay. Well then, I’m returning to training.”

After saying that, Fay woke up. When he woke up, Aliceia was giving him a lap pillow and caressing his forehead. Fay’s body was mine, so she shouldn’t do things as she liked. 

“Ah, you woke up.” 


“Fay-sama! You can sleep on my lap instead!!”

“I don’t need it.”

“He must find my lap better than yours.”

“Hah? Please don’t get carried away.”

“I’m just stating the truth.”

Aliceia and Mordred were quarreling. Alright, now was the time to say that question!! 

“Rather than that, I found my mouth wet and I was stripped of my clothes when I woke up this morning. Do you know anything about it?” 



“Well, I don’t know about it.”

“I also have no idea.”

“…I see.”

“I’m sure you’re just training while sleeping, right? Fay can do something like that after all.”

“You’re right.”

“I see… so you’re saying I was training.”

You fool!! No matter how you think about it, those two were the culprits!! Those two seemed to be more shameless than I thought. 

Oh well, Fay’s body will become mine eventually. 

I would just let them do what they liked for now… I didn’t like the things they did to my Fay, saying things like it was their own, but… 

Well, I would deal with it eventually…

What was that about “forget the chapter the other day” did the author change his mind about the plot?

Also is it just me or the story is becoming less well thought after that big fight with the demon where merlin shows for the first time? The things are just happening and aren’t connecting, there was a whole disciple with the new girl emilia that was just forgotten, then yururu suddenly confess and ask for marriage and the story just cuts there, then he gives lele the eyes and barely interact with him and maria, we did not even get to they saying goodbye to each other, why didn’t he return back to the main city with them? He is suddenly a paladin just in name, never did missions anymore, is living in another city for don’t know how long, supposedly all the exorcist families are after him but they only just attacked him that one time and gave up, Barbara falling for him was way too quick and forced too…. dunno seems like things just keep happening and the author never follows up on the thing that he introduced and start to tackle the next thing without any closure, the story used to be way better in my opinion

Baragi doesn’t seem to think so. And it originally was the kind of game that had these scenes. But we will never truly know (looks off to the horizon with a haunted gaze)
