“Gress, appraise it.”
After Leo said that, Gress looked at the ball in my hand.
“Dragon Blast… It really seems like you’ll be able to use the Hydra’s breath with this. What are you gonna do Master Leo?” asked Gress.
While smiling slightly, Leo just shook his head.
“If I use it, it will probably suck my MP dry in an instant leaving me dead. Gojo you’re the only one that can use it.” said Leo, kindly refusing my offer.
He really did have a point, on top of that if he had eaten it, he would be willingly parting with being human in a way.
I closed my hand and put the Dragon Blast candy back in the space region.
“I’ve decided to believe you Gojo. But leaving that aside, I want to talk about what we’ll do from now on.” said Leo, after which everyone’s gazes gathered on him.
“In a bit I’ll have to go report about the subjugation to the military. The problem is what should I do with the information about Gojo.”
After Leo finished his words the whole room went into silence. However before anyone could say anything Wan broke the silence.
“What’s the problem!? Just tell them that Gojo defeated the two BOSSes and that’s it!”
“I cannot do that.” said Leo.
Hearing that, Wan made a complicated expression.
“Gojo is way too strong. I already hear about it from Gress, but apparently no matter the security he can easily break through anywhere.” continued Leo.
“Well I guess that’s true.” said Wan a bit reluctantly.
I couldn’t of course deny any of Leo’s words, I had already shown my skills in front of everyone after all.
Continuing Leo said “Which means that he’ll be viewed as a problem by many countries. He’s a strong force that can easily get into any country without anyone being able to stop him. Compared to him, the Dragons would be the least of their worries.”
As Leo was saying, it would indeed just lead to unnecessary fear and confusion.
“Even if he managed to conceal his teleportation and time stopping abilities, he’ll still be viewed as an unstoppable force. If that happens, I cannot see it turning into a favorable situation for Gojo.”
“That may be true, however he is still the one who defeated China’s BOSS! The Chinese Government didn’t announce it publicly, however the one to be praised should have been Gojo not Suzaku.” said Wan.
‘It seems like she went ahead and told the Chinese Government about me… Still I guess it’s only natural that they did what they did.’
“I completely understand. However that’s not the main problem.” said Leo.
“There’s something else!?” replied Wan with a worried expression.
“This one doesn’t only concern Gojo, but all of us as well…” said Leo while showing a serious face. Afterwards he continued.
“Currently the so-called ability users, or mutants, are starting to increase throughout the world. It’s basically said that it’s due to the fact that Magic Particles began appearing in the world, but regardless of the fact, normal citizens who discriminate against mutants have been on the rise as well.”
“Well it’s true that there are some ability users that use their skills to cause crimes. Considering that I can understand them.” said Carlo agreeing with Leo.
Following that, Leo continued talking again
“The problem is that we succeeded in the United Kingdom subjugation. After all it’s speculated that there isn’t a country with monsters stronger than the United Kingdom’s Dragons. In other words, it’s highly possible that the world will start moving towards peace from now on.”
“So what, do you mean to say that soldiers won’t be needed in a peaceful world?” Asked Wan, her expression seemed a bit down. Hearing her question Leo replied.
“Things might still remain the same in China. You’re a communist country so the society will respect the government’s decision. However, we in the democratic countries, for better or worse, have to value the opinion of the citizens. As long as the country’s citizens wish for it, the discriminations against the mutants can go south really fast.”
After hearing Leo speak, the atmosphere in the room turned heavy.
“In order to protect ourselves and Gojo as well, it’s for the best that we don’t tell the truth about this time’s subjugation, is what you’re trying to say right?”
Asked Carlo, to which Leo nodded in agreement.
“Gojo is the hero who saved the United Kingdom and us alongside it. I don’t want to turn this into a situation that would hurt him.” said Leo.
Hearing that Wan turned towards me and asked.
“Gojo what do you want to do? Are you really okay with this?”
While listening to their conversation just now I had been using Telepathy on Leo, so I knew that he really was worried about me. There was nothing more than I could have asked for.
Making up my mind I told them how I felt about the situation.
[Brest ・ First Military Meeting Room]
“Were you the one who dealt the final blow Leo?”
Looking at Army General Heiden in front of me, I made up my mind and answered.
“Yes, I was the one. From now on we speculate that the numbers of Dragons in the area should begin dwindling as well.”
“That’s great news. In that case we’ll immediately dispatch a search squad towards the United Kingdom. After we’ve confirmed everything we’ll announce it to the media.” said Army General Heiden happily.
“The Sanctuary Knights will definitely be praised by the whole world.”
“They did also cooperate with the NATO Military this time. I’m glad that everything turned out so well. Ha, ha,ha.”
Everyone amongst the big shots were laughing, seemingly having a good time, however if it weren’t for Gojo none of us here would be alive. I still couldn’t get rid of the bad taste of my mouth because of having to lie just now.
“Gojo, Leo from The Sanctuary Knights is on TV.” said Sakuragi pointing at Leo and the others who were currently being broadcast on the big TV inside the airport.
The NATO Military officially announced that due to the cooperation between them, The Sanctuary Knights, Suzaku, and the Self-Defense Force of Japan, the subjugation had been successful.
And just as I had asked of him, Leo took the spotlight.
Still I strongly believed that what he said about people gradually starting to discriminate against the mutants, would come true. I wasn’t sure what would happen in the future to The Sanctuary Knights who were currently being treated as heroes.
With Sakuragi and Mr. Hagino by my side we boarded the government plane.
After sitting in my seat I decided to look over my status――

I had maxed out the Hero class. Alongside it the skill rank of Growth Speed had increased as well, as well as the rank for Light Protection
It appeared that with the Hero Class I could easily obtain upgrades for the Growth Speed skill…
Sakuragi suddenly said, sitting right next to me.
“I’ll say it once again but, good job. You’ll finally be able to rest a bit when we get back to Japan.”
“I guess. Still there’s one thing that’s been bugging me lately.”
“What is it?”
“It’s France. According to the Great Sage’s Class Skill Archive, it’s supposed to have a Rank A difficulty… However I’ve been there numerous times already and I’m yet to see a single monster.”
“Now that you mention it.”
“I wonder if they’ll appear soon, or could they have already…”
While still holding doubts in my mind the plane took off as we departed from Geneva.
