「Phew, that was close. Ah, Nera-kun, would you mind pouring me some tea?」
「Please do it yourself.」
She just bluntly declined. I’m the boss here, yet I’m treated without respect.
Still, making that absurd contract wasted a considerable amount of time.
I expected it to go smoothly after making the usual contract so it was a bit unexpected.
「Leader, why did you agree with the two of them with those absurd conditions?」
「…… You didn’t see what actually happened on the actual site, right Nera-kun?
After receiving the report, I headed there to confirm it, but well, it was a disaster. Scars that would usually be left by a large-scale magic cast by multiple people could be seen all over the place.
At first, I thought it was just some kind of mistake, so I interrogated the knight that accompanied the extermination but he was certain that those scars were made by both the demonoid and dragonoid girl.
When I heard that, I imagined and feared what would happen if those individuals that can use such powerful magic would end up in another country’s grasp.
It’s been a very long time since we had any wars, but I can never be sure of what might happen in the future. For that reason alone, if we can keep them in our country right now, it’ll get rid of any future problems. That’s what I believed.」
I poured myself a cup of tea and quenched my dry mouth.
「I see. So the conditions are just secondary……」
「That’s right. Besides, if need be, we can summon them and assign them on missions. It might be an unfavorable contract on the surface, however, if we put what I just said into account, it’s not that much of a problem.」
「What are you keeping from me?」
I involuntarily twitched. Crap, I couldn’t hide my surprise.
「What do you mean?」
I asked her with the calmest tone I could muster.
「How many years do you even think I’ve worked under you? Every time you moisturise your mouth with tea right after you finish talking, you’re generally either lying or have a hidden agenda.」
Eek! My subordinate is too scary! She even knows a habit that I’m unaware of, does she have me under surveillance or something?
「I-I don’t know what you’re talking about.」
Crap, I stuttered just now. Now I’m making it more obvious that I’m hiding something.
「…… Natsuki-san and Ruti-san were quite cute, don’t you agree?」

I accidentally spilled my tea.
Nera-kun’s gaze is piercing right through me. Kh! So this is my limit, huh.
「I mean…… I can’t help it! After seeing people that cute, it’s only natural for me to want them as my subordinates! I just want some healing for our order too!」
「Ho…… So you mean to say, we’re not healing for you……」
Ah, this is bad, did I just become an enemy of all of our female members?
「Ah, no, don’t misunderstand. You and the other members are, you know, more of a pretty-type than the cute-type, so it’s a bit different you see, right?」
「Right right, it’s been a while since you’ve joined us in training, right leader? Would you mind sparring with me every once in a while?」
「Wait! I’m a bit out of it from all the deskwork lately, I can’t keep up with your traini-Gueh!」
With a refreshing smile on her face, she grabs me by the collar and begins dragging me by the neck.
I pray that I’ll be able to see another day……
