Chapter 77: Dozing off

After we had grilled fish for dinner, I cut a large piece of paper into A4-sized pieces with my fingernails. 

Failed in the process, the paper was crumpled into a ball and rolled around the area. 

The paper rolled around. 

And I stare at it without thinking. 

….

I poked at the rolled paper. 

The paper ball rolls. 

Making a rustling sound. 

Poke. 

And rolls. 

Poke. 

And rolls. 

Fufufu.

“Nyaa (Haa?!)”

Huh, my goodness! 

Who would have thought that a rolled paper ball would be so captivating? 

The dreaded cat instinct. 

I may be screwed. 

…Stop acting silly and keep working on cutting up the paper. 

I threw the paper ball into the furnace. 

The paper ball burned up and disappeared instantly. 

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

When the work was finished, we decided to relax in front of the fireplace. 

It’s warm. 

I stretch my body. 

“Nyanko-san, may I sit next to you~?”

Aurene sat down next to me. 

“The Demon King is already asleep, isn’t she?”

Sylph baa-san is sleeping in a simple hut I made for her. 

Technically, she’s no longer a demon king, but Aurene still calls her that. 

“Don’t you know, Nyanko-san?

When the Demon King dies of old age, the next Demon King will appear out of nowhere~.”

[Is that so?]

“Yup~.

The Demon King is still alive~.

And yet, I hear that a new Demon King has appeared~.”

That doesn’t concern me. 

“This is my guess. Did you extend the Demon King’s life~?”

[I don’t remember.]

I healed Sylph baa-san hemiplegia, glaucoma, and pneumonia, but it shouldn’t have anything to do with her life span. 

“I see~.

Perhaps a new Demon King will be born when the pre-determined lifespan has passed~.”

….

“The Demon King will surely be born in the year God has pre-determined… oh, Nyanko-san has gone to sleep~.”

…zzz.
