Avoid the Death Route! Chapter 29

「There’s no doubt that she’s quite an outstanding person」
《Right? Contract her~》
《Ria is a good child. Lightning, please form a contract her by all means》

No, no, no!
Hughley and Luke are enormously recommending a contract though!?
I told you, wait a moment there, okay!

《Ria-chan, I’m back~》

Ahh, my savior has returned!
Miria, do something about this situation~

《Oh my~ Ria-chan, there are tears in your lovely eyes~ Did something happen again while I wasn’t around~? Did that thing rolling on the ground did something again at the last moment~?》

Ah, I completely forgot about Kyle Spinel~
…… He’s unconscious, isn’t he?
Un, then, it should be fine to leave him as he is again, right?
Rather than that――

「Miria, Hughley and Luke are~~~」
《Oh my, oh my? Did Hughley do something~? Also, who is that person called Luke~?》
《Me, it’s me》
《Oh my~? Wind~? You have finally contracted Ria, huh~ Even though you were so obvious that it was on your mind, you looked so impatient and yet didn’t do anything about it~》
《S, shut up~! That’s unrelated at the moment! Rather than that, it’s Lightning’s turn now!》
《Lightning’s? Oh my, oh my~ How unusual~ Did your identity got exposed~?》

Ah, Miria also knows this Lightning Spirit-san, huh.

《I’m trying to make Lightning form a contract with Ria》
《Oh my~? Lightning, is that true~?》
「Yeah, I think of contracting her. Ojousan, could you give me a name?」
「Eh!? No, no! Let’s wait for a moment!」

Is this really flowing towards the contract!?
High-grade spirits don’t easily form contracts, right?
Why are they so easy when it comes to me!

「Miria~ Contracting this simply is not good, right? Persuade him to think it over~」
《Ria-chan, Ria-chan》
「N? What is it?」
《Let’s form the contract~》

No way, for Miria to recommend the contract too!
When I looked at father and others, they were shaking their heads as if saying “we won’t interrupt.”
I, I have no allies!?

《It’s not like I don’t understand Ria-chan’s feelings, but you see~ Spirits absolutely won’t offer a contract with someone they don’t like~ That’s why accepting when the talks of a contract come up would be happier~》

If you tell me that, I will be unable to refuse anymore, you know~

「I understand. Umm…… Gill-san, let’s get along from now on…… but, Gill-san has a name, right? And yet, you want me to name you?」
「Gill is the name my previous contractor has given me」

Ohh~ Gill-san has been in a contract before~

「In case of a new contract, we spirits receive a new name from that contractor」
「…… Is that so?」

But, but!!
Gill-san is making a gentle smile, but he seems a bit sad.
That’s an expression of reluctance, isn’t it?
As I thought, he’s attached to it, isn’t he……
If he had a good relationship with his previous contractor, then all the more!
Hmm, hmm~…… let’s see~~~

「Then, Gilbert. May I call you Gill?」
「Gillber…… Gill…… thank you very much, Ria」

Gill-san, now Gilbert, smiled cheerfully.
I’m glad, he seems to like it.
