—The next morning.
My only lifeline in the human realm were my combat abilities, so I got into the habit of stretching every morning even after I came to the demon realm.
My stretching was just as well finished by the time breakfast was brought in.
And, as a hero-prisoner, I would have my breakfast brought in good condition into this prison by bat-like monsters.
“I thought I was going to die.”
“My bad, my bad. I forgot that humans were as vulnerable as spotted mice… I’m a dragon in human form but I’m stronger than I look, so I could’ve killed you by accident.”
Gard cackled and patted me when I had crouched down in a groggy state.
I looked at him resentfully, but it didn’t matter. Thanks to that, I had to resist so much while being swayed around.
I drank a delicious cup of black tea while I was thinking about that, half-joking, half-serious. Since I got sweaty during training, I stood up to take a shower.
“Sorry for the intrusion.”
If you’re sorry then just leave.
After the demon lord’s seizure had subsided, he snapped his fingers while smirking and summoned a tea set on the table beside him.
He took his place on one of the tables for two in a regal, elegant manner. The way he crossed his long legs, wearing a satisfied expression and boldly smiling, really looked as if he was taken out of a painting.
Tea parties with the demon lord were the routine these days. Without asking permission, I sat across from him.
About two weeks had passed since the demon lord kept me.
They said it’d be hard to live in the cage, so I was taken out from it. And today, I was peacefully working out, as had become the usual.
I had my feet anchored on the extravagant decorations sticking out from the wall, doing hanging sit-ups.

I didn’t think I’d be getting any more information, so I gave up and slowly rose.
The demon lord noticed me get up immediately, stopped their conversation and walked towards the side of the cage in a quick, yet graceful manner.
“…Good morning. …Uhm, I guess I lost.”
In this world, I am Ookawa Shouryuu, a hero summoned from another world.
It seemed that Japanese names were hard to pronounce in this world, so my name got adapted to Shal. For the record, I desperately tried to make them call me by my name, but it was rejected, so that is that.
I was on my way home from work when, as soon as I got off the train, the surroundings completely changed.
‘Oh, Great Hero!’ Gathered there, was an army of people in mysterious white robes.
