To that word,
“Deny it Husbands sama! This bitch, she want to use the sparring as an excuse to touch…..”
“Daaa! I have no desire to do that nya!”
Aapshow smiled bitterly looking at the Uliminus who was desperately trying to convince Lys of her motive.
“Don’t worry I understand, my wife’s ex-co-worker might be worried that a demon’s husband is a human so I don’t have any problem”
Aapshow accepted her request.

Ulimnus had a plan for this spar.
She couldn’t just trust that he defeated Fengril, or how he overpowered Lys like an idiot, but she has to at least believe that he may be a strong person.
Thinking so without having to fight him head on, her plan was to send her specialty, a poison magic to the underground and kill him without being noticed.
