Chapter 38.1 : Attack Of The Titan
◆ Goblin Prince, Goz
「I see, so Omiros is looking for Regena. Well, maybe Omiros looking for her is better than you being the one that is doing」
When the silver witch in front of my eyes said so, my body regained its freedom.
I told everything I knew to this witch.
Nevertheless, for some reason, she asked me about Regena, too.
Thus, a question suddenly appeared in my mind.
Could it be that this silver witch was the one who kidnapped Regena?
「That’s all, do as you wish after this. Kuna is leaving」
When the silver witch was about to leave after saying those words,
「Please wait a minute, Kuna-sama!」
I tried to stop her. Even if her business was done, mine was not.
「What do you want, Goz? Do you have something else to tell me?」
The silver witch asked that question with an irritated tone. Her irritated expression was lovely, too.
「Could it be that you … are the one who captured Regena?」
「I have no reason to tell you that」
I only received a bone-chilling answer from the silver witch.
「Is that all? In that case, Kuna is leaving」
When she was about to leave again, I realized that I had to stop her at all costs! I hurriedly ran in front of the Silver Witch.
「P-Please wait a minute, Kuna-sama! T-That’s right! It seems that this fruit wine is the special product of this kingdom! H-How about trying to taste it? Just one cup! Your Excellency might be pleased if you bring back one as a present」
I replied in panic while slipping my hand into my chest pocket where I kept the aphrodisiac.
As long as I make the silver witch before my eyes drink this aphrodisiac, no matter how powerful she is, she’ll be no different from a bitch in heat.
I’ll make her tell me about Regena on top of the bed.
But, the eyes of the silver witch became colder after seeing my actions.
「Is the thing what you want me to drink just fruit wine?」
Chills ran down in my spine as soon as I heard those words.
「W-What do you mean, GOB!?」
My tone became slightly strange again.
「… Fool! Truly an ugly and idiotic goblin. Neither your charm nor your intelligence is even a millionth of Kuroki’s. Do you think that I’m just going to watch you in silence? Know your place!」
Could it be that she noticed my attempt?
「Uhm … Just one glass of fruit wine…」
「You liar! You can’t lie to Kuna with your level of magic power. There’s an aphrodisiac that you got from that goblin queen in your pocket, right?」
My eyes opened wide in surprise as soon as I heard those words.mThe silver witch knew about the aphrodisiac!
「Look into Kuna’s eyes!」
The eyes of the silver witch shone brightly, and suddenly, I couldn’t move my body.
「Drink the aphrodisiac in your pocket!」
When I heard those words, my hands began moving on their own, taking the small bottle from my breast pocket and then pouring the content down my throat.
I must not drink this!
The aphrodisiac is vigorous even with a mere drop or two. I might lose my sanity if I drink the whole bottle.
Despite my resistance, my hand was moving on its own.
The sweet flavor of the aphrodisiac made with the honey of the demon bees living in the dark forest of Nargol started spreading within my mouth.
When I drank almost half of the aphrodisiac, my lower body couldn’t help but tremble non-stop.
「Huff, huff …」
A strange voice kept leaking out from my mouth. My nether region was going to go out of control soon. I could smell the sweet fragrance wafting from the silver witch’s body. I CAN’T HOLD BACK ANYMORE!
As I was about to pounce on the silver witch,
「EH … HUH!」
When my feet were about to take a step, it felt like they were glued to the ground.
「I felt sick as soon as that ugly face of yours became uglier by two-fold … To be honest, your existence itself is a nuisance」
She was looking down on me with her piercing cold silvery pupils. The moment I saw those eyes, it felt as if an electric current passed through my body. I was desperately pinning my nether region with both of my hands.
It leaked out.
A certain liquid was gushing out from my groin and spilling on the floor.
「Now, enjoy your pain till the end of this ball」
The silver witch then went somewhere after saying those words.
「Wait … Kuna-sama … Ahe~ … Ahe~ …」
But I couldn’t do anything, save for standing still in place with drool spilling from my mouth.
◆Prince of Algore, Omiros
Without Shirone-sama, I, left without a dancing partner, was looking for a place to enjoy my solitude. The fact that I was unable to dance had been intimated to Shirone-sama. King Eclas also had no problem with that.
Looking at his attitude towards us, it seemed that a diplomatic relationship with Velos was still feasible. Thus, there was no need to force me to dance. After walking in the royal palace, I felt a little bit hungry. Come to think of it, I ate nothing during lunch. So, I went to the room where they arranged the meals.
Various kinds of food were served in that room. Lamb meat sandwiched between two bread slices, grilled eel with thick fish sauce; a whole roasted goose stuffed with herbs and garlic, onion soup with carrots and turnip. Delicious aromas were wafting out from every dish.
「As expected of the Velos kingdom, they’re really rich.」
This abundance of food didn’t exist in Algore. I ate nothing but bean soup ever since I was a kid, and I eat that even now.
「I’ll bring back some for Rillete」
This was definitely not a thing to do on this occasion, but there was a lot of food here that wasn’t available in Algore, so bringing some might not be a problem. Though Rillete wanted to come along when our decision to go to Velos was made, in the end, she was not allowed since we were not coming here to play around, and she was still too young.
I took out a cloth from my pocket to wrap them. It was still clean and pretty since it was unused, so I decided to take the baked cake.
Then, I looked for the place where they would place that kind of pastries. I found that place immediately and stretched my hand to reach the baked sweets. I heard that these baked goods were made from thinly sliced and sweet fruits of Velos wrapped in wheat dough and then baked as is. I took a few of them and wrapped them with the cloth in my hand.
「This much should be enough」
I wanted to bring more, but I had no choice but to abandon the idea since I didn’t bring any food containers with me.
At that time, I noticed a woman next to me. This woman was taking several of those foods into the container that she brought with her. What she was doing was extremely obvious.
「She’s piling it up one after another…」
While I was trying to bring back a small amount of food with me to Algore, she seemed like she wanted to bring back everything. Maybe she also came from a poor country like me. But then, the container she held in her hand piqued my curiosity. The container was something that I had never seen until now. It seems that the container was made from a soft yet colorless material. This is the first time I have seen such a container.
Did a poor country have that kind of container?
I wonder what material it was made from.
When I looked at that woman, I could hardly see her face due to her forelocks and the cloth that was covering her face.
I instantly recognized her as soon as she moved her face to the sideIt was the face of the one I wanted to see the most in this world. I rushed to that girl’s side.
When I called her name, the woman looked at me.
Her mouth and eyes opened wide to their limit due to the surprise.
「Omi … ros」
The girl muttered my name.
There, I met Regena who was supposed to be in the goblin’s den.
◆ Former Princess of Algore, Regena
I never expected to come to Velos in this manner. The Velos kingdom was the birthplace of my mother. I heard from my wet nurse that my mother was the most beautiful woman in Velos. She was even called the jewel of Velos and the noble princess of that kingdom.
The dancing figure of my mother was really beautiful.
I used to think about coming to Velos to dance in their venue when I was still a child. That was why the young me was taught how to dance by my mother.
But now, I realize that’s impossible.
My mother used to be the fiance of the prince of this kingdom, but then she eloped with my father, the previous king of Algore. That’s why, I, who was born from the two of them, couldn’t get to dance in the venue of the Velos kingdom. And despite being expelled from Algore, my appearance closely resembled my mother’s. That was why, even though I never danced, standing out in this ball was dangerous. And yet, I wanted to see this ball at least once. That was why I appealed to kuna-sama to bring me along when I heard that she wanted to come.
「Kuna-sama is really beautiful…」
