The situation in the New Kathra Beastman Kingdom has stabilized quite well.
Intanyu and the others are still checking periodically to see if any strange gods have been added to the kingdom, but it seems that none have been found.
On the other hand, Celude seems to be looking for information on the political situation through the contacts of those who believe in her, but there seems to be no problem there either.
So, as a guardian deity, I could breathe a sigh of relief.
And it just so happened that Rione was there that day as well.
“I’ve left the work to the others.”
Rione came into my room after lunch, where she stretched out, “Mmm.”
Of course, I don’t think she’s full of it. I know very well that Rione has been working day and night for a long time.
“Lately, my subordinates have become much more organized, and I’ve been able to entrust them with more work than before. I am grateful for that.”
“As a king, you’re doing the right thing.”
It’s not a good thing for the monarch herself to be working so much. It’s better for the country if the monarch does little or nothing at all.
“I was thinking of relaxing with my husband today…”
What a nice thing to say! My spirits rose with that.
“Yes, yes. Take it easy today.”
I rolled over with Rione in my arms from behind.
We’re a married couple without water. I won’t let anyone disturb us.
“Will this country continue to exist in peace?”
It was a frank question, typical of a king.
After all, the survival of the country is like life to the king.
That’s why I decided to answer frankly.
“No, I don’t know that either.”
God does not have the ability to foresee the future. He may seem omniscient to humans, but he’s not that omnipotent.
“Maybe our country will suddenly be invaded and destroyed. Maybe a strange country from abroad will attack us. We gods can be a source of power, but it’s only a temporary source of power.”
“That’s right. Otherwise, no country would ever be destroyed, right?”
Rione’s response was that she knew, but her voice still sounded sad.
“But I’m still going to protect you, Rione!”
I squeezed Rione’s hand tightly in my embrace.
“I’m Rione’s husband before being God. I’m not going to do anything that will make my wife sad!”
When I pull Rione out of my arms, she turns around.
Her eyes were a little watery.
“I want to be with my husband forever too!”
This time, Rione hugged me.
I accept the Rione hug.
There is no such thing as eternity.
I learned this the hard way when the country where I was a guardian deity was destroyed.
That is why I want to spend as many days as possible with Rione.
That is my wish as a God.
“…I was thinking why you didn’t come out when I called you, but you were flirting…”
My eyes met with Intanyu’s awkward face in the back.
“Geez, Intanyu, how long have you been here?”
And then there’s Celude and all the other gods.
Rione quickly pulled away from me, her face turning red. Well, that’s true…
“I just got here a little while ago. It was a bit urgent, so I had to come in here.”
“What the hell? If it’s something trivial, I won’t understand.”
“I’ve found a new god.”
I can’t leave this one alone.
“Yes, yes. Shall we have a strategy meeting right away?”
