178. Allen Cell and Political Marriage 
For the time being, I briefly explained the current situation.
「So, we used the spot in the Phantom Spirit Laboratory to sneak into the Empire.」
Zack, who was listening quietly to the story, nodded with a serious face.
「I see now. However, to catch the eye of Numero of all people… that Sie Arcstria is a really unlucky woman.」he muttered, with a strange look, and his arms folded.
From his heavy tone, you can understand perfectly how terrible the man known as Numero was.
「Okay. In this case, I see that justice is on Allen’s side. I’ll help you out!」
「That will help us a lot.」
「Zahaha, don’t worry about it! In the end, I’m doing this for myself as well!」
「… For yourself?」
「Aa, yes. If I let『Extraordinary Sparkly』die in such a boring place, I would probably drink myself to death due to regret!」
Zack uttered something ill-omened, and spread a piece of paper he took out from the closet on the desk.
「This is a rough sketch of Belios Castle. As I said earlier, this is the Belios Castle towering in the centre of the Empire. The residential quarters of the general members are located in the middle. Outside this room, a lot of my friends are swarming around. It would be impossible to slip out of this castle without being noticed by anyone.」
He shook his head, pointing alternatingly between the tenth floor and the entrance on the first floor.
「Well, that would be so, I guess.」
I wasn’t under the assumption it would be easy to get out from the middle of the enemy camp in the first place.
「But don’t worry. This time, I’ll give you this special thing!」Zack said, taking out six black cloaks from the clothes shelf.
「It’s not something I can say out loud, but… We, the members of the Black Organization, have a thin sense of camaraderie. Even if we live in the same residential quarters, nobody even knows each other’s faces and names. Unless you’re a big deal, nobody even cares who lives next door.」
「Oh, is that so?」
「Aa, there’s a problem of high mortality rate on duty, so– No, that doesn’t matter right now. Well, what I’m trying to say is, even if there’s an unfamiliar group, no one is going to be snooping around if you’re wearing that black cloak.」he said, nodding with confidence.
「No, I appreciate the thought, but this size doesn’t fit at all.」
Zack was a giant of two meters, and this black cloak which was made to fit his physique was too large.
Even if they don’t know their friends’ faces, if we walked around dressed in this oversized, loose clothing, it would definitely raise suspicions.
「Zahaha, that won’t be a problem. Just try wearing it once!」
The moment I put it on,
I don’t know how exactly it works, but the cloak, which was more than twice as big, changed its size to fit my physique.
「Zahahaha, are you surprised? After all, it’s a special cloak made by Rod Garf, the『Magician』!」
Another suspicious name has appeared.
「What, you don’t know? He is a strange fellow who makes nothing but mysterious things such as a magic tool which develops an advanced barrier, and a magic tool which suppresses the power of soul dress. I thought he was pretty famous, but… Well, it doesn’t matter right now.」Zack said, cutting the story short.「Now… it’s time to talk about the escape route.」
Holding a pen in one hand, he dropped his gaze on the sketch of Belios Castle.
