Chapter 35.4 : The Goblin And The Prince
「Please wait for a while gob! I’m going to ask her highness permission gob」
After general Keneo said this, his subordinates went to meet my mother.
「This way, Goz」
After Keneo called me, I went along the corridor toward my mother’s room.
There are several huge gates connected to my mother’s room.
I fell on my knees and bowed my head toward my mother. This mother of mine is merciless toward anyone who’s rude to her, including her own children. That’s why I have to show my utmost courtesy.
「It’s been a while, my dear mother」
「Raise your face, Goz」
I raised my face since my mother alowed it. Thus, I saw the figure of my mother, Datie. My mother was as ugly as ever.
And the child who was born between the goblin queen and male human is me.
When it comes to crossbreeding, if the child is male, then it’ll inherit his father’s race and if it’s a female, then it’ll inherit her mother’s race. Thus, I am a human.
Female goblins rarely come out of the nest. The ones that come out of the nest are the males. There’s no such thing where male goblins kidnap male humans and bring them back for female goblins for breeding. And there’s no way human males will mate with those ugly female goblins, anyway. That’s why in normal cases, female goblins almost never give birth to male humans. But, there’s always an exception. Namely, me.
These goblins will bring back male humans for a powerful queen like my mother.
I don’t know what kind of a person my father was since he was already dead long before I was aware of my surroundings. But, I can imagine the reason for his death. He might have had quite the handsome visage for my mother to be attracted toward him.
And then, he must’ve been raped by my mother. As long as someone drinks the powerful aphrodisiac made by her, any male will get an erection even if the other party is ugly as hell. She most likely squeezed him dry till he died.
I touched my face. Even though there’s no mirror, I can tell that my face resembles that ugly face of my mother. The nature of the parent of the other race is inherited by the child. For example, the male human born from their elf mother possesses powerful magical power.
That’s why, even though I’m not a goblin despite my mother being a goblin, I inherited her goblin characteristics. My face is that of an ugly goblin. My younger brother who died right after his birth was the same.
Even if one of my parents is a goblin, goblin nests aren’t a nice place for humans. The feeble children of humans will die immediately.
I somehow survived since I inherited my mother’s magical power. But, it seems that my younger brother and elder brother weren’t as lucky as me. They didn’t inherit my mother’s magical power. I heard that I’m the only male born from my mother who survived this long.
All the others were already dead.
Looking at my mother, she might be the strongest goblin around since her magic power is equal to that of members of the demon race.
Though mine is a far cry from my mother’s, this powerful magical power is the sole grace from my mother.
「Come to think of it, I rarely see you nowadays… To think that Parish was you in disguise. It seems that the magical power of the scouts couldn’t see through your illusion」
My mother is saying so while laughing.
I never told anyone that I went to the human kingdom by changing my appearance for the sake of severing my connection with my mother. Thus, this problem happened.
「Dear mother… I was attacked by a silver-haired witch when I was using my identity as Parish a while ago. Do you know about her identity, dear mother? 」
My mother pondered for a while when I asked that question.
「Silver-haired witch… Ah, I remember now. She was the woman who came along with that awe-inspiring Diehart-sama. I made a report to Diehart-sama since some people were making a disturbance in the southern settlement lately. Moreover, I wanted to meet Diehart-sama…」
My mother said so with an fascinated face.
I can be sure of it now that my mother told me. That silver witch was sent by my mother.
I did heard about this person called Diehart. He is the dark knight who defeated that terrifying hero. And that beautiful silver witch might be Diehart’s subordinate.
「Dear mother, I have no reason to go against you. Naturally, that also includes his majesty, the
demon king. But, is that matter really that urgent for you to report it to his excellency Diehart?」
Though I was spared in our last meeting, it doesn’t mean that I won’t meet her again. There’s no way I’m going to let myself be killed at that time.
「I know, I know. This matter has been conveyed to his excellency, you know. Did you come here only for this reason?」
One of my goals for coming to this place has been achieved, but I have another goal in my mind.
