Hyoudou Issei’s parents — Hyoudou Gorou and Hyoudou Miki were escorted to the VIP spectating room by their escort, Kanzaki Mitsuya. As they entered the room, they found a red-haired gentleman and a woman resembling Rias along with a red-haired boy awaiting their arrival. They were Rias’s parents, Zeoticus and Venelana, and Rias’s nephew Millicas. The red-haired gentleman stood up and welcomed them.

“Oh my, Hyoudou-san. I’ve been waiting for you.”

Gorou bowed slightly in response to Zeoticus.

“Aaaaah, I’m really sorry to have made you wait for us!”

—Millicas also bowed his head.

“Nice to meet you, Ise-oniisama’s dad and mom.”

The Hyoudou couple responded to the red-haired lad with a big smile.

“Oh, Millicas-kun. You’ve grown since the last time we met.”

As the conversation continued, everyone got to their seats since both the participants’ families had arrived. Zeoticus sat in front of Gorou and initiated a fatherly chat.

“Finally.”

“Yeah… I’m sorry for my son and daughter who keep causing you trouble.”

“No, no, me too. I am also grateful to Ise-kun and Asia-san. After all, watching their growth is the most important thing.”

“That being said, I am really nervous. To think that they’d be going against that Rias…”

“The fact that he gained independence, created his own team and participated in the tournament, it was only a matter of time before he faced Rias as he kept on winning. I also regard my son-in-law Ise-kun—”

As such a fatherly conversation continued, the mothers also set next to each other and started to talk. Rias’s mother — Venelana said to Miki.

“I’m honoured that you came.”

“N-No, I’m pleased as well. I am sorry that I haven’t been able to come to the matches until now…”

The Gremory couple knew well that Miki was afraid to watch Ise and Asia fighting. They also knew that she had decided to support her son directly now that he had made it to the main draw—. Venelana then spoke about what was on her mind as a mother.

“No, I can empathise with you.. Nothing worries us more than our children’s fights after all. However, this is the path chosen by our children. I believe that we have to see them in all their glory.”

“Yes. That’s what I felt as well, and the reason why I came here. My son Ise and my daughter Asia… I will watch their struggle—”

Venelana smiled brightly in response to Miki’s intention. As there were such serious conversations, the fathers on the other hand…

“Hyoudou-san. How about this?”

Zeoticus received a glass of beer from the staff and handed it to Gorou.

“Oh, is this beer?”

“Yeah, I heard that it’s something created by that former Governor Azazel, and was sent by the Grigori as soon as it was completed. Well, let us enjoy the drink. That’s what the Japanese do when they watch a match, right?”

“Wow, I am surprised that Gremory-san pays attention to the Japanese heart!”

The two fathers held a glass of beer in their hands and made a toast.

“Well then, let us quickly toast and enjoy the drink!”

“You said it!”

“”Cheers!””

As they toasted their glass, they quickly gulped the whole glass.

““Gahahahahaha!””

Venelana and Miki were both embarrassed in response to their husbands laughing happily.

“…Geez.”

“…Yes, indeed.”

As the two fathers enjoyed the match while having a beer, their children’s match was about to begin—.
