Maou na Ore to Fushihime no Yubiwa Volume 2

Prologue

In our town, Saegusa city, there is a large-scale festival held every year on the day of the Tanabata, the Saegusa festival.

Though I've said large-scale, I mean among us locals, not so large that becomes a national event...
Still, if you came and looked at this town recently, you would understand how beloved this festival is by the local inhabitants.

"Are you going back home, Haru?"

"NO. It's past questions from the Center Test."

"WHY?!"
She looked at me with her eyes widened in surprise.

"Why, you ask... From next year on we'll be preparing for exams. I think it's time to start taking measures."

"...Could it be that you're thinking about taking the college entrance exam?"

"I'm not thinking much on the future, but of course I have it as a possibility… what. You don't believe I can?"

"It's not that, but…… what about your work as a monster tamer?"
"……ahh… You meant that……"

Those who stand as a go-between for monsters and humans — monster tamers.
