The next day, when I woke up, there was no one in the bedroom.

Each one of them was asleep in the bed, but it's got a stuffy shell besides me.

"... Could it have been too much sleep?

When I got dressed and went to the living room, Lucha and the shop fairy had prepared breakfast.

"Ah, good morning, Hiroki!

"Ya, it's dinner already!

"Morning, both of you, you're well in the morning...... Huh"

I yawn and I try to get to my seat and I say, "Wait -!" and can be stopped by the store fairy.

"Hey, what? Oh, well. I'll help you, too."

"No, no, no. The Demon King is out there, so I want you to call him."

"Master Tito? Speaking of which, you weren't sleeping. Okay, I'll see."

Lucha also said, "Say hello," so I get out of the house and go to the dungeon. Yesterday there was the Lord, but now there are no demons, so it's quiet.

The Demon King stood in the center of such a room.

"Are you okay now? Dear Tito,"

"... Hiroki? Don't worry, I'll be fine."

"Good for you. I did a magic search when I fell, but my magic holdings were up, so I think I'm okay now."

Of course I can't say absolutely, but you should try that with me just now.

The Demon King nodded and looked at his hands and said, "[Fire]".

"-!"

"... Sure, you can use your magic skills as I wish"

"That's brilliant."

A flame is coming out of both palms, and that is what the Demon King wants. I didn't know I could do this with my magic skills, but is that the place called Demon King?

Perhaps you have excellent taste in dealing with magic.

When I compliment you, the Demon King loosens his mouth.

"Thank you, Hiroki"

"No, because Tito did his best."

I said that and laughed, "No," I shook my head.

"For they have fulfilled all that I have said I want to move on. To the three of you, I thank you."

"... if you didn't want to answer, fine, but why were you so adamant about moving on?

If you just want to increase your level and be strong, you just have to be defeating demons at a different low level. Demon slime makes me weak, but I should have been pretty strong just taking down Demon Goblin.

"Can't you help but hide it? Of course I wanted to raise my level, but I... wanted to visit my grave."

"Graveside......?

"Here lies a generation of demon kings and their companions asleep."

Does that mean the Demon King's parents are asleep...?

Besides, he said it was the first time he had entered this dungeon, so it would be his first visit to the grave.

I told him I wanted to move on, but I finally figured it out. I mean, there's only a relief that I'm glad I didn't have to tell you to turn back even if I couldn't.

"I'm sure your parents will be delighted that Lord Tito is here."

"I don't know."

"Huh?"

"Am I not worthy to be king of demons? I pulled and played games and didn't want to be the Demon King"

Still, my surroundings called me Demon King about me, and they cared about me.

"I renounced meeting the expectations of my surroundings, I'm just a stupid demon..."

I don't know what to say to the King of Demons who tells me I'm lonely.

I don't even know how the previous Demon King died, or how lonely the Demon King may have been.

But if there's still something you can say from me...

"I'm glad Lord Tito is the Demon King."

It's sincere.

If we were demons who preferred killing, we might not have been summoned as brave men by now.

"I'm glad to see you too, Hiroki."

The demon king who said so grinned and laughed - his forehead swayed at the edge of it, revealing a face he had never seen before.

Tight, cute eyes narrowed, staring at me.

"Uh... woman's, child?

There's no way I'm a demon king.

"Oh...? Sorry, that could have been my mistake."

No, no, no, no. Huh?

The Demon King denied it, so I nodded quickly, but it only looked like a girl...... dude? But maybe there's a decision that demon kings have to be men.

Then I guess I'd better pretend I didn't notice.

I'm worried about Hiji-kun, but I can't ask.

Maybe Lusha thinks the Demon King is a boy too...

"Hiroki, Dear Tito ~!?"

"Ah, Lusha."

"Are you ready for breakfast already? Can you come?"

"Oh, I'll be right there"

Because I didn't quite call the Demon King, or Rousha called this way with half a peek through the door.

I responded immediately and I went home with the Demon King.

◆ ◆ ◆

After breakfast, we moved on to the boss's room.

"No, there's a transfer device to get out of the dungeon."

"There's a treasure chest too! After all, it's nine levels, but it was the Lord."

As the store fairy and Rousha said, there was a transfer device and a chest. But at the same time, there was a way forward.

Perhaps beyond that, there is the tomb of the Historic Demon King.

"First, why don't you open the chest?... Dear Tito, can you please"

"Um, I'll take care of it."

When the Demon King slowly opened the chest, what came out of it was four books of skill acquisition and money.

I expected a rare item because it seemed like a highly secret dungeon, but it didn't seem to work out so well.

Unfortunately, the Demon King is happily looking at the Book of Skill Acquisition.

It was level one, and I'm sure this would be the first time I've opened a chest. Besides, the Demon King is a gamer, so I can see I'm happy and I can't help it.

"Let's make this one book at a time. Keep my share of the store fairy with me."

"Ya, I get it"

The Store Fairy has acquired two skills books, and me and Rusha get one at a time. The money is in addition to the thank you, so we're going to get it.

For a moment, we also pack our bags and look further into the spiral staircase.

"Um, what do you do? Are you going?

"Oh. I wanted to go ahead and that's it. Can you hang out a little more?

When Rusha asked him what he would do, he told him that the Demon King would soon go.

Of course there are no opposing members, so we set foot on the road leading to the 10th hierarchy.
