rifying, but…

As we proceeded with this conversation, Ouma-san reacted to a car running on the road.

“Mm? Yuuya, what the hell is that? I can’t feel any magic in that thing.”

“It’s a car, you know.
It’s not powered by magic; it’s powered by a fuel called gasoline.”

“How can it be powered by anything other than magic…?”

(Well, it’s a rather primitive energy source, isn’t it? Nowadays, the mainstream is using starlight as energy or even magic power…)

by the way, Merl-san’s spaceship doesn’t work with that starlight?”

(Yes, unfortunately… I don’t have the parts on hand.)

Apparently, that’s not going to work.

While I was talking with Merl-san and admiring the alien technology, I suddenly realized something and asked Ouma-san in my mind.

“Speaking of which, Ouma-san, aren’t you interested in Merl-san’s planet and the spaceship?”

Yes, Merl-san’s planet is definitely more civilized than Earth’s, and I think it would be much more fun than seeing Earth’s civilization…

Then Ouma-san snorted.

I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bother me, but… It’s boring.”


“The little girl’s planet has advanced to a level of civilization that I find hard to imagine.
The technology on her planet is close to the realm of the gods.”

I believe that most things can be done.
With our technology, we could extend the lifespan of the people of Earth by a thousand years, and there is no such thing as death by disease on our planet.)


T-thousand years, you say…? And there is no such thing as death by disease?

The space is amazing.

“There’s nothing interesting about it anymore.
In comparison, this Earth where Yuuya lives is a civilization that my imagination can barely catch up with, and every single thing about it is very interesting.”

“S-so, that’s how it is…”

I don’t know about it, but I guess a TV that can project images at a distance is just within the range of Ouma-san’s imagination.
It’s a difficult thing to figure out.
From my perspective, all the things on Earth are natural and convenient, but from Merl-san’s perspective, they must all be inefficient and inconvenient.
Yet, from Merl-san’s perspective, these inconveniences may be exquisitely interesting.
It’s a realm I don’t understand anymore.

So with that in mind, Ouma-san and Merl-san continued to walk happily, reacting to everything they saw, but Ouma-san’s figure seemed to stand out, and people on the street looked at him with wide eyes.

“Whoa? W-what’s that? That pet…”

“Wa… eh? That’s the guy who appeared in the magazine, isn’t it?”

“Eh? Ah, yeah!”

“What’s that animal?”

“I don’t know? It’s like a monitor lizard, maybe?”

“I see… a monitor… lizard, huh…? I didn’t know there were dragon-like reptiles like that…”

“I mean, taking a walk with a lizard like that is rare.
Well, a lizard that size probably needs to be taken for a walk.”

They looked at him curiously, but fortunately, they didn’t seem to be disgusted by him, which was a relief.
Some people were not fond of reptiles.
Well I don’t know if the Genesis Dragon can be classified as a reptile though.

As I was about to reassure myself, one of the people looking at me suddenly opened his mouth in displeasure.

“Don’t bring your pets into the city.
You’re disturbing me…”


At that moment, Ouma-san’s eyes suddenly sharpened, and he tried to put tremendous pressure on the person who had just muttered those words!

I was so panicked that I immediately stopped him in my mind.

“Stop, Ouma-san, stop! You’re supposed to be a lizard right now! And yet, if you go out of control here, you’ll ruin everything!”

“But, Yuuya.
That human said I was disturbing…”

“I understand how you feel, but you have to be patient here!”

“Mm… I’m annoyed, but… I’ll leave it at that just this once…”

After one last glare, Ouma-san turned his head away.

Then, it seems that my restraint was just a little too late, and the man who made the remark earlier walked away quickly with a pale face.
I’m really sorry…

“Ah! It’s a lizard!”



As we continued our walk, we attracted the attention of the people around us.
A group of children from the nursery school, who also seemed to be out on a walk, noticed Ouma-san and raised their voices.

The children approached Ouma-san without fear.

“W-what is it?”

“It’s Lizard-san!”

“Awesome! Cool!”

“It’s so big!”

The nursery school teacher bowed her head apologetically to the bewildered Ouma-san, who was suddenly surrounded by children.

“I-I’m so sorry! The children are…”

“No, no, it’s okay.”

“Hey, hey! Can I touch it?”

“Me, me! I’ll touch it too!”

Then the children shouted to touch Ouma-san, and the teacher looked more and more troubled.

I watched them and talked to Ouma-san in my mind.

“Hey, Ouma-san.
The kids want to touch you, is that okay?”

“What? Why should I allow that?”

“But look at the kids.
Look at their eyes; they’re so excited…”


As I said, the children were itching to touch Ouma-san, and their eyes were shining as they stared at him.

As expected, Ouma-san couldn’t bear the pure gaze of the children and nodded reluctantly.

“Eei, it can’t be helped… However, you must cut it out in moderation! I still want to enjoy the Earth!”

“Thank you.”

I thanked Ouma-san and told the nursery school teacher.

“It’s okay to touch him.
But please don’t be too rough.”

“I’m really sorry… Look, everyone.
Let’s take turns stroking it gently.”


The children responded cheerfully and took turns touching Ouma-san’s body.

“Whoa! So smooth!”

“So cool! It looks like a dragon!”

“It’s so thick!”

“H-hey, that’s enough, isn’t it? Right?”

“Well, well.
Just a little more.”

“No, but… Hey, kid! Don’t grip my tail so hard! Oh, don’t touch my horn so carelessly! You’ll hurt yourself! Hey, don’t get carried away!”

The arrogant and self-righteous Ouma-san faltered in front of the children.
After children were satisfied with some touches, they smiled.

“Thank you, Onii-chan!”

“Bye, bye, lizard-san!”

“I’m really sorry… Thank you very much.”

“No, no.
I’m glad they enjoyed it too.”

After waving goodbye to the children and the nursery school teachers, who bowed repeatedly, Ouma-san laid down on the spot, looking exhausted.

“T-those children are fearless… I never thought they would be so unreserved with me…”

“But weren’t they cute?”

“…Well, I guess.
Unlike those ugly people who have aged unnecessarily, children are pure and good.
Well, there’s a certain recklessness that comes with being a child.”

Mmm, wasted age is… not that there aren’t adults like that, but.

A few moments later, Ouma-san got up and began to walk again, regaining his composure.

“Now, we’re still going.
Follow me closely!”

“Yes, yes.”

Merl-san and I followed Ouma-san as he continued on his way.
