「Care to elaborate more about that one? Big Bro Iza… what did he do here? What did he managed to accomplish?」

「You really want to know, huh? Well, if I were to describe it, he was picking fights left and right across the entire Little Garden, from The City of Brilliant Flames in the north to the Underwood here in the south, he just ran from one place to another without restraint, bringing chaos and trouble wherever he went. If only he was even half as reliable as the two of you seem to be, then maybe, just maybe… I wouldn’t have had to rip so many hairs out of my head on a daily basis!!!!」

Suddenly Kuro Usagi went through a mental breakdown and started crying. Yeah, that looked like Izayoi’s doing alright. Only he could be such a senseless brute to make an adorable girl like Kuro Usagi break down in tears.

「Uhm, well… L-Looks like Big Bro Iza made you go through quite the number of hardships yourself, huh?」

「If it’s of any consolation to you, he was like that even back when he was living in the orphanage with us. Anyway, can we go back to the business at hand? It will be a nice diversion from your past traumas, or at least I think so.」

Homura’s expression was getting more and more uneasy. As someone who would rather die than make a girl cry, he wanted her to cheer up as soon as possible. As if she was waiting exactly for that cue, Kuro Usagi straightened up immediately. Homura summarized everything they’ve learned from the chain of conversations they were having up until now and then asked with a very serious face:

「Let me ask you this bluntly: Is there a way for us to return back to the world we came from?」

「…. Wha?」

Kuro Usagi answered blankly. Her puzzled face told Homura everything he needed to know: she had no idea what he was talking about. That made something in the back of his head creak as if something was about to break. He pushed the dishes in front of him to the side, leaned forward towards her and asked very slowly so that she could understand him this time.

「So you want to say that we cannot go back?」

「N-No, that’s not it, it’s not like that at all, but… eh? W-Wait a minute, something seems strange here! The only people who can be summoned to the World of Little Garden are the ones who 「have a reason to arrive in Little Garden」. !f I may ask, what was written in your invitation letter?」

Dumbstruck, Homura had to lean back and think for a moment. He received the message during an emergency, so it only just now occurred to him that he didn’t even had the time to check what the message’s contents were. He quickly took out his phone and found the mail send by the queen hallowe’[email protected] and opened the message. Its contents were as follows:

–The 2nd War for the Sun’s Authority Invitation–

「What the hell…..?!!!!」

For a moment, Kuro Usagi looked as if she was hit with a very heavy blunt object to the head. She just stood there, staring at the screen of Homura’s phone without uttering a single word, only opening and closing her mouth repeatedly like a fish washed ashore.

「An invitation to the 2nd War of the Sun’s Authority?!!! Why would an outsider like Mr. Homura even get such an invitation in the first place?!!!!!!」

「H-How should I know?! Even if you ask me that, I am just as confused as you are.」

「Arguing about that can wait for later. For now, let’s check what the message itself has to say, senpai.」

Urged by Ayato Homura nodded his head, and then everyone at the table gathered around him to confirm the contents of the message he received.

–The 2nd War for the Sun’s Authority Invitation–

Dear Mister Saigo Homura

We are delighted to inform you that you have earned the right to participate in the qualifications stage for The 2nd War for the Sun’s Authority that is currently being held in The World of Little Garden.

Celestial Beast required for subjugation: Taurus

Winning Conditions:

  1. Subjugation of the Taurus’ Avatar
  2. Erasing of the Taurus’ lightning, returning its star to its original form
  • Summary of the Rules & Duration Period:

The duration of the Game’s preliminary stage is 7 years. After the set time period passes without the participant achieving either of the winning conditions, said participant is to be disqualified automatically. Even if the one to subjugate the beast is not Mr. Saigo Homura himself, the achievement would still be counted on your behalf, so feel free to cooperate with as many people as you see fit.

*Points of Importance*

The challenge and its timeframe presented above have been prepared specifically so that Mr. Saigo Homura could take part in The 2nd War for the Sun’s Authority. Should you choose to abstain/abandon/ignore the participation or get eliminated in the preliminary round, it will result in the challenge’s cancellation and the collection of the Gift Proto Idea that is currently in your possession, so please forgive us for the inconvenience if that do happens. Furthermore, it is prohibited to leave Little Garden throughout the duration of the game, so please be mindful of that fact. Depending on the circumstances it might be possible to prolong the Game, but we strongly recommend to fulfill the requirements presented to you withing the allotted timeframe.


          The 2nd War for the Sun’s Authority’s Facilitation Committee, The Laplace Demons

The moment he finished reading the ridiculous message, Homura slammed his fist into the table and screamed in protest.


His scream resulted in the entire surroundings giving them the looks of displeasure, and the restaurant area was filled with murmurs commenting on his uncivilized behavior. Holding the phone with his hands that were shaking from anger, he read through the message once more, but it only made the situation worse.

「The timeframe is seven fucking years you say?! You cannot leave Little Garden you say?!!! Don’t screw with me!!! Who in their right mind would accept such outrageous conditions???????!!!!!!!」

「H-Homura, I know you’re angry, but maybe try to calm down a little?」

「Me? Calm down a little? You’re telling me to calm down?! AS FUCKING IF!!! If I… if we won’t go back, do you have any idea what’s going to happen to the orphanage?! No? Then allow me to enlighten you! Everything Company would stop funding it! And without their money, the orphanage is as good as finished!」

That was the straw that broke the camels back. Even though he was being put through so many absurd and life-threatening situations one after the other without stopping, Homura still tried cope with it as stoically as possible by bottling up all of the negative feelings and stress deep inside of him, but the message he read just now and its implications were just too much. Unable to take it anymore, he just had to let all of the accumulated negativity explode. It wasn’t a question of if it was going to happen, only when. And that time was now. And besides, in this particular case, his anger was the righteous one. Right now, Canaria Family Home needed Saigo Homura and his research to survive. If he went missing for 7 whole years, the investors from Everything Company would definitely stop sending their money their way, and Suzuka knew that well. Which is why she asked Kuro Usagi a question of her own with a slightly tense attitude:

「Kuro Usagi, is there really nothing we can do about this? Can we really not return without abstaining from the Game?」

「…I’m afraid that would be difficult. To begin with, you wouldn’t have been transported to Little Garden if you haven’t agreed to the invitation.」

Kuro Usagi dropped her ears apologetically and squeezed her arm with her hand tightly.

Finally, after staying silent for so long and finishing drinking her tea, Kudou Ayato decided to speak up.

「Miss Kuro Usagi, if I may, I would like to clarify something about one of the previous topics of our conversation, if that is alright with you.」

「Y-Yes, of course, go right ahead, Miss Ayato.」

「Gift Games are, properly speaking, competitions held by various Gods and demons here within Little Garden, correct?」

「Eh? Ah, yes, that is indeed correct.」

「However, senpai and I ran into the monster described in the invitation back in our own world. Moreover, the one who defeated it was Sakamaki Izayoi, who happened to appear in the right place at the right time, fulfilling the conditions for passing the qualifications for this Gift Game listed in the message. Therefore, it can be said that we have been transported to Little Garden as a result of the chain of events and circumstances outside of our control after getting involved I it purely by accident. So while we are taking shelter here for the time being, I think it is perfectly reasonable to think that there are plenty of reasons for allowing us to go back to our own world.」


While Ayato continued her questioning with a stronger and stricter tone, all Kuro Usagi could do was to nervously play with her ears.
