With the red dot as a landmark, I looked for the one who entered into the demon town.
I finally found that person, it was a fellow who was deeply covered with a hood.
What are you doing in a place such as this?」
When I suddenly called out, that person was startled.
He tried to ignore me and was going to leave hastily.
「Don't ignore me, okay?」
I quickly sneaked around and blocked his way.
Still that person tries to change direction and run away many times.
When I kept on blocking his way like basketball defense―
That person shouted something in an unknown language.
A language I don't know of?
I used【Language Acquisition】at once.

In other words, this guy is a『devil-kin』, huh!!
I immediately acquired level 5 devil language
and tried talking.
『Are you a devil-kin?
Why are you in the demon town?』
A hornless but can understand our language!?』
『Lowly people such as hornless, don't speak our holy language!』
Is the hornless he is referring to the humans?
That person took out a knife from his breast pocket.
Whilst holding a sword,
I tried to also use【Appraisal】.
However, that guy moved quickly and dodged the【Appraisal】magic.
Not only demonkind but devil-kin can also sense magic, huh!
The guy flew into a rage and attacked with a knife.
I've barely dodged the knife,
that knife is obviously smeared with『poison』!
Even a scratch can become a fatal injury.
With me dodging his knife stroke, the guy was astonished―
he seemed to have become considerably wary of me.
『You can't escape.
Why don't you just give up?』
『I wonder about that.』
When that guy broke into a grin―
he took out some kind of a『magic stone』from his breast pocket.
I immediately fired off an【electric shock】,
preventing the magic stone to be used.
The guy received my electric shock directly,
he immediately dropped down and lost consciousness.
After confirming that he completely lost consciousness,
I approached and removed his hood and―
it was a young『woman』with two grown horns......
While admiring her face, I tried to use【appraisal】.
│Power: 28 Endurance: 23
│Ability: 74 Magic power: 46
│ Darkness 3, Magic power perception 3
│ Short blade techniques 4
So that's why she doesn't want the【appraisal】to be used on her.
It can't be helped, in order to check whether or not she was concealing something dangerous,
I checked her body.
It's really because『it can't be helped』!!
She had two magic stones.
The first one, the【magic stone of return】.
She seemed to be going to escape with this a little while ago.
The second one, the【Magic stone of night shade】.
There's such a thing, huh!
She probably used this when she entered the town.
I confiscated the two magic stones and the knife,
and I tied up her hands and body with a rope.
However, it seems to be hard to carry her while unconscious......
『Hey, wake up!』
I slapped her face and wake her up.
『Wa!? I-, I'm...... what......
Ku! Untie this rope! This hornless!!』
She finally woke up, huh.
However, she's running wild too much......
『Shit! W-, Wedgie......』
Ah, I didn't particularly『tie her up in a strange way』, okay?
It's true, you know?
I brought her to where Bunmi-san is.
「That person! Isn't she a devil-kin!!?
What happened, Seiji-dono!?」
「To match up with the monsters' invasion,
she had invaded from the other side of the town.」
『G-, Go ahead and kill me right now.』
Since there's already that character, don't steal it away!
「Devil-kin language, huh.
It's good if I understand what you are saying but……」
「I understand it.」
As one would expect of the interpreter!」
I'm not an interpreter!
「Then, what was the fellow doing?」
「I'll ask her for a moment.」
『What did you come here to do?』
『Humph, I'm not going to say!』
「It seems she's not willing to talk.」
「Is that so, then, you want to be tortured, huh!」
「That's right! It can't be helped, huh.」
When I'm feeling cheerful―
A reaction of multiple devil-kin showed up on the map.
「Unfortunately, it seems we don't have time for torturing.
There's a reaction of multiple devil-kin in the direction where the great rats came.」
Bunmi-san hurriedly makes the soldiers prepare to intercept.
The spy woman had been taken by another soldier......
I-. It's not that I wanted to torture her in particular!!
