Chapter 39.2 : Captured Regena
By the way, Friona was the name of my mother.
She used to be the fiancee of the king of Velos, who is right before me now.
He’s indeed the embodiment of what you call a healthy and nice uncle.
Why didn’t he ask for the reason why my mother left him and went to Algore?
It might have been a matter of appearance. I couldn’t really say that the king before me was a good-looking person. I have no doubt that my father is a handsome man.
However, in regard to innate nature, this king is far better than him.
Even from my point of view, his daughter, my father has the kind of personality that could easily provoke a lot of people.
In comparison to that, this king seemed to be someone who was loved by everyone.
After speaking with him for a while I became aware of his kindness.
Instead of venting his anger on the daughter of his former fiancee who abandoned him, he mourned for me who was expelled by my country.
But in regard to his kindness, he looked like someone who would easily get himself cheated by a bad person.
「Kaya-dono! She must’ve been tricked by that evil dark knight! Please, don’t torture her!!」
Omiros shouted those words to defend me.
「「MY DEAR MASTER[KUROKI] ISN’T AN EVIL PERSON!」」
For some reason, the woman called Shirone was also shouting along with me. Knowing his name aside, I wonder what her relationship with my dear master was.
Omiros shrank back after being yelled at by Shirone and me. I felt sorry for him even though he was just trying to protect me. But, I just couldn’t let anyone speak badly of my dear master.
「Kaya. I’m not fond of violent ways, too.」
The woman called Kyouka, the little sister of the hero also covered for me.
It seems that the woman called Kaya couldn’t go against Kyouka’s words. It seems I was saved from a cruel fate. At the very least, they won’t use torture on me.
「Understood. I won’t use any violent methods on her.」
Saying so, Kaya looked at me.
「Well then, let’s ask a different question, then. That night, Kuroki-san was with that silver-haired woman right, who is she?」
I unintentionally answered the question of the woman called Kaya. I don’t know what she wants to find out with that question, though.
「Hou, so that woman is called Kuna. What kind of person is she?」
I have no answer to this question.
「You don’t know anything about her, huh? Well, she might be some sort of a high-ranking demon.」
How sharp. I mean, Kuna-sama is the daughter of His Highness the Demon King after all.
「I’m also curious about her. Tell me, Regena-san. Who is that girl?」
Naturally, I don’t know the answer to that question, too.
「Could it be she’s the one manipulating Kuroki?」
「Manipulating? My dear master?」
「Don’t you think that it’s strange? The reason why your kind master is serving under that wicked Demon King.」
The woman called Kaya said so with a cold tone.
Now that she mentions it, I wonder why such a kind person like my dear master lives in Nargol?
「… Come to think of it, Kuna-sama is always muttering something as if my dear master is hers…」
The little sister of the hero and company are exchanging glances in hearing me mutter so.
「As I thought … That girl is the reason.」
「It seems so for me too…」
「It seems that we have finally found some clues here.」
It seems that the little sister of the hero is under the impression that my dear master is being controlled by Kuna-sama.
As for me, I don’t think so.
I mean, my dear master wouldn’t have saved me if he was really being controlled by Kuna-sama. Moreover, I noticed that Kuna-sama always considered me a hindrance. In fact, if my dear master was really being controlled by her, I would have long since lost my life.
But, it’s not like I’m going to tell these girls about this doubt of mine.
「What shall we do, return for now and meet up with Reiji and the rest first? Rino-sama might be able to get more information from her … Or, at the very least, we have to tell this piece of information to Chiyuki-sama.」
「Yeah, that’s right. We should get in touch with her … Even so, I want to stay here for a while longer … It SeEMs ThAT I’LL HAvE To MEeT THaT GiRL CaLleD KuNA AgAIN.」
The woman called Shirone was laughing.
「Shirone-san … Your face is scary you know…」
Their discussion was going on and on.
I suddenly shifted my line of sight to that place.
On there, a person was standing still in silence despite being in the same room.
I’m sure that his name was Parish.
I’ve met him once in the past. He should be the house guest of Omiros’s father. I never spoke to him.
The first time I met him was around half a year ago. Despite being someone sheltered by my father’s enemy, he was quite famous even in my family due to those good looks.
But, he is my father’s enemy. He’s a terrifying soldier who can use both sword and magic.
Nevertheless, even that Parish is far weaker compared to my dear master.
Parish’s condition seemed awfully strange. Bloodshot eyes and rough breath.
It seems that he became like that due to Kuna-sama’s magic.
I don’t know why Kuna-sama attacked Parish.
I wonder what happened to him.
Above all, I noticed that his eyes kept glancing in my direction. He kept looking at me ever since he came to this room.
And for some reason, I got goosebumps whenever he looked in my direction.
Which reminded me of the fact that it felt like he was always looking in my direction back in Algore. I remember that I was always avoiding his unpleasant gaze.
Despite him being an extremely handsome person, I, for some reason, didn’t want to approach him.
Parish’s eyes met mine.
When his eyes met mine, he laughed eerily.
For some reason, I started shuddering upon seeing that smile.
◆Sword Maiden, Shirone
「How was the result, Kaya-san?」
I asked Kaya-san.
She used communication magic to get in touch with Chiyuki-san just a while ago.
After our conversation with Regena, we were currently in the room that was prepared for us. Regena was sleeping in the room beside our room. Kaya-san made her sleep since she was acting violently.
She wanted to go back to Kuroki’s side, but we couldn’t send her back since she’s a precious source of information. Poor girl.
We could easily arrive at Kuroki’s side as long as we used the gem loaded with transfer magic that was in Regena’s possession. I wanted to use it, but Kaya confiscated it. We shouldn’t do such reckless things since we didn’t have enough information about the other side.
「It seems meeting with them is quite a task…」
After our discussion, Kaya-san said so while touching the bracelet on her left hand.
Communication magic was engraved in that bracelet.
Communication magic is slightly troublesome since it can’t be done if the other party doesn’t master communication magic as well.
In the first place, Chiyuki-san was the only one who can use communication magic amongst us. But, we could still have our regular meetings by using this communication magic tool.
The bracelets that we got from Rena made it possible for even someone unable to use communication magic to utilize it freely.
We got this bracelet from Chiyuki-san when we decided to act separately from Reiji and co. This was a precaution measure in case something happened along the way.
「What’s happening on the other side, Kaya?」
Kyouka-san asked Kaya.
「It seems that they received an extremely troublesome request from the Magician Association and are yet to finish it.」
Kaya-san bowed to Kyouka-san.
「In short, Reiji and company are yet to go back to the Holy Republic of Lenaria, right?」
「It’s as you say, Shirone-sama. They’re currently in the Republic of Ariadina.」
「The Ariadina Republic? Where is that place, Kaya? 」
「It’s a country located at the border between the western and eastern side of the continent, right to the south of the Minon plains. I heard that it’s a prosperous trading city」
「I see, going there seems to be quite a troublesome journey…」
We could move instantly with teleportation magic if it’s to go back to the Holy Republic of Lenaria. Even so, it was going to take a lot of time to go to that Republic of Ariadina.
「So, what shall we do from now on? Kuroki-sama might come to get her back. Without the help of Reiji-sama and the rest, we’re no match for him.」
Kaya-san asked us with a troubled expression.
It’s just as Kaya-san said, Kuroki was powerful. It took all of our members cooperating together to beat him. But, I didn’t want to go back.
「Naturally, I think we should go to Algore for the time being. Rather, it’s more convenient if Kuroki comes to us.」
Nevertheless, he might be forced to go there.
Hearing that, Kaya-san heaved a sigh.
「Haa~, so things really turned out this way, huh … But, please don’t force yourself and withdraw immediately if things get dangerous.」
「Yeah, I promise.」
Everyone was worried about me. Moreover, I couldn’t involve them in dangers caused by my whims. That was why I couldn’t force myself.
It’s just that I want Kuroki to come as soon as possible. I’m sure that the thread is still connecting us together. I believe so.
◆ Goblin Prince, Goz
Sprawling before my eyes were the bodies of naked females.
There are ugly ones and beautiful ones, too.
However, their beauty isn’t at the level of the little sister of the hero or Regena.
I have to hold back for now.
After being interrogated, Regena was taken by the little sister of the hero.
That pitiful Omiros, hated by Regena, returned to his own room with a dejected face without even being able to talk to her.
Since I managed to suppress my throbbing lower body caused by drinking that aphrodisiac, I invited several females who attended the ball, and there’s no need to say – what followed after that was an orgy.
These females are completely satisfied after being f^cked by this handsome Parish.
But, the throbbing of my lower body isn’t abated.
The effect of the aphrodisiac forcefully fed by that detestable Silver Witch was yet to vanish entirely.
