Chapter 34: Diary of the Shrine Maiden
the Demon King is still preoccupied with Saint matters today. I’ve been unable to communicate with the Demon King recently, which makes me sad.
“I wonder if there’s anything I can do for His Majesty…”
I want to assist the Demon King, who has made me his friend. the Demon King said so, but the most important thing is that I wish I had the Shrine Maiden’s power. If the Shrine Maiden and the Saint are a pair, the Shrine Maiden is the only one who can truly oppose the Saint. “
“The Shrine Maiden is a person who grants her own wishes.”
My greatest wish right now is to assist the Demon King. So I want to be able to fight the Saint.
I go to the library and look through books, hoping to find hints that will lead me to the Shrine Maiden’s power.
Except for a book called “Shrine Maiden and the Saints,” which I had borrowed earlier, I couldn’t find anything interesting.
Come to think of it, the first person who told me I was a Shrine Maiden was Yulin… I wonder if Yulin knows anything about Shrine Maidens.
I requested that Sarah create a schedule for me. Yulin came to my room the next day.
“I’m sorry for bothering you when you’re busy, but does Yulin have any information about the Shrine Maiden?”
When I told Yulin that I wanted to help the Demon King, Yulin thought about it.
“I don’t know much myself, but the diary of the first Shrine Maiden, which has been passed down through the Demon King for generations, might hold some clues. I’m sure my brother will give you permission. I will talk to him.”
The diary of the first Shrine Maiden…I wonder what it says.
I thanked Yulin, and we parted ways that day.
The next day, the Demon King himself visited my room and handed me the first Shrine Maiden’s diary. It may be inappropriate to think such thoughts while the Demon King is so preoccupied, but I’m relieved to see his face.
“I’m sorry, I forgot about this diary even though it had something to do with you.”
“No, thank you for showing me something important.”
the Demon King handed me the diary before returning to his office.
The diary was in excellent condition, as if it had been blessed with a protective spell.
I opened the diary.
──I was transported to another world. My name is Mikoto. I’m not sure if this will help you, but I’m writing it down in case other Japanese wander into another world besides mine someday.
It’s also a modern language. I assumed it was Japanese, but I didn’t think it was modern. I thought it was an archaic text. Maybe time flows differently in Japan than in this world.
There were some innocuous things in the book at first. The similarities and differences between this world and Japan. She later fell in love with the Demon King.
As I turned the pages, I noticed something that piqued my interest.
──My powers did not manifest themselves until I visited the “shrine”.
I wonder if I’ll wake up to my powers when I get there. But so far, the only thing that’s helped me is this diary.
I’m not sure where the shrine is, but I’m going anyway.
