Chapter 131 - Suspicious man


『Ringo-chan』and『C』stared at each other.

「Impossible, the『Magical girl of Wind』’s true identity was C-chan!」
「Sorry, Ringo-chan. I kept silent until now.」

「No,
C-chan!
You will beat the『Bug monster man』without fail!」
「I understand, since I will swiftly finish it off,
please wait for me, Ringo-chan.」

『Nullpo, Nullpo.~
I will turn the whole world into null!!』

「Come out! Bug monster man Nullpo!!
I’m going to swiftly finish you off!!!」

『Bug monster man Nullpo』is a monster man that has sea anemone for a head and an ape for the body.

「「Waaa!! That’s so cool!!」」

By the way, the person who was cosplaying the『Bug monster man Nullpo』turned up,
and hurriedly performed some hero-ish ad lib.

Everyone is in high spirits and the audience seems to be pleased as well.

I……
I was recording a video using a smartphone according to Aya’s instruction.

『Thank you very much. It was fun.』
「Same here, it was fun.」

As『Bug monster man Nullpo』said so, he exchanged intense hand shake with『Magical girl C』and eloquently went away.
But, it seemed to be difficult to talk in that cosplay……

「Were you able to take it properly, oniichan?」
「Oh, it’s perfect.」

「Please show it to me as well, Seiji-sama.」

The 5 magical girls gathered around to see the video recording.

Well, whilst the girls are engrossed in the video,
I’m going to finish another job.

Among the crowd, a lone person,
a sunglasses man wearing a perfect suit, was looking at us with his arms crossed.
I walked towards that person.

「Hello.」
「N?  What do you want?」

The man has an attitude as if saying『what are you talking about?』

「The paper bag in the side seems very heavy, doesn’t it?」
「Ah, yes, it contain some of my work tools.」

I wonder what kind of work it is for a person in a suit with work tools to intentionally come in a cosplay convention.

「Hey? There is a hole in the paper bag.~」
「N!? S-, so what?」

I drew even closer and peered inside the paper bag.

「The paper bag’s content seems to be a very expensive camera.~」
「D-, Did you look inside without permission?」

「This camera~
is a very expensive stuff, it can also perform infrared photography, right?~」
「That’s why I said don’t peek inside!」

「Which one of us is『peeping』?」
「!?」

「What is that switch in your left hand?
It serves as the camera’s remote control button, huh.~
If it’s from such a low angle, you might have seen naughty stuff from those girls.」

「S-, S-, S-, Such a thing, there’s no p-, particular reason to it.
I’m b-, busy so I-, I’m leaving.」

Cold sweat began to break out on the man in the suit’s forehead.

I mean, from this man,
【Vigilance】magic indicated『Caution』from a little while ago.

「Should I hold the paper bag for you?」
「N-, No thanks! Don’t touch it.」

「No no, don’t be reserved.」

The moment I said so and touched the paper bag!

*Buzz buzz!!!*

「Waa, static electricity~!!
Aaa, that shocked meee, jeezzz.」

Well, it’s not static electricity but【Electric shock】.

When the man in suit snatched the paper bag from my hand,
he held the paper bag and frantically ran away.

「Oniichan, who’s that man in the suit you were talking just now?
Was it oniichan’s acquaintance?」

「I don’t have an abnormal acquaintance who was trying to take up skirt pictures, even more so with an infrared camera.」

「N!? Was that fellow a pervert?
Why didn’t you catch him, oniichan!?」

「Because of the strong 『static electricity』 that suddenly occurred.
You don’t need to worry though, the built-in HD memory card and the camera’s body,
all broke down completely.
Furthermore, if the police get involved, Elena would be in trouble.」

「Strong static electricity, huh.~
Leaving that aside, why would Elena be in trouble?」

「Has Elena undergone formal immigration process?」
「Ah, is that soo?」

***

 After a while, it became noon―

「What’s the matter, oniichan? You look troubled?」
「Listen carefully, Aya. I’ve made a huge mistake.」

「W-, What is it?」

「I……
didn’t bring lunch.」
「W-, whaaat!!」

At that moment, Aya’s stomach rumbles with『*grooowwwll* 』.

「What have you done, oniichan!?
Buy something quickly!」
「O-, Oh.」

I left the venue and went shopping in the nearby convenience store.
Or rather, when did I become the one in charge of bringing food?

When I arrived at the convenience store, it……
was a battlefield.

A long queue of people had been formed and when I lined up at the end of the queue, I was given a placard that read『end of the queue is over here』.

In the end, just shopping took an hour,
when I bought onigiris, sandwiches and drinks for a number of people and returned……

Towards the middle of the 5 harmonious magical girls,
a man stepped in!

Furthermore, the girls,
raised sugary, joyfully voices,
and pleasantly smiled at the man.

Who the hell are you!!?
