I, who tried to deny it, immediately sucked on Nanny’s nipple as soon as I saw it being held out in front of my face and regained peace of mind.
That was something beyond my control.
Because babies have the instinct to suck on something in the first 6 months after they’re born. After that, they still suck on their fingers and other things because it became a habit for various reasons like lack of affection, boredom, curiosity, and other reasons.
If it is not corrected in this phase the teeth and face would not grow prettily. So parents’ attention and love is a must.
Anyways, it’s not a matter of my discipline.
“Princess, shall we escape to your motherland? I will serve you.”
Nanny couldn’t make a decision and hesitated with her answer. Because the only instruction she received from Saintess H was to raise me here.
A brilliant idea came across my mind after being in agony as I saw Nanny being indecisive.
My present job is Demon King.
I can give orders to the demons and the demon followers.
Through methods like telepathy.
“Chwap chwap- au.”
B rank, please speak on my behalf.
“Listen, freaking Sword Princess who swings a sword around wildly.”
“…Lord? It’s true that I trespassed but your words just now were a bit too much coming from a noble with dignity…”
“We will never commit such an atrocity like retreating and throwing away innocent people as you wicked bitch no doubt have planned. We will destroy the emerging empire with my- the cute Sir Baby’s strategy. An ignorant female knight that tries to solve everything by cutting off anything with her sword when a problem arises should just sit and watch.”
The Sword Princess with her face that turned red, raged.
But I- Lord, didn’t wither even a bit.
“Haha! Look at that. Didn’t your hand reach for your sword handle again? Sword Princess, if you’re going to cut me, go ahead. Because that would only prove your ignorance and impatience.”
Our friendly conversation ended as Nanny intervened.
Afterward, we decided to fight against the emerging empire that declared war in the Neutral Nation here in this domain.
The Sword Princess sighed and said,
“The empire’s ambition won’t end until the Northern Continent is united. Just like what both of you said, even if we run away, we won’t buy much time. But for now, it’s also a fact that we don’t have a chance of winning. If the Lord allows me to, I will contact the motherland and ask for them to dispatch an army. At least soldiers of our domain…”
With a fat full belly, I entrusted the details to the Lord’s ability and drifted to sleep.
The next day just like the Lord had predicted, the emerging empire had declared war.
The nation was likely to become weakened if lots of wars happened in a row but this nation was immersed in the victory and wouldn’t look back.
Even so, what was the reason they didn’t fall apart?
They never lost in an important war, not even once.
This is the Golden Golem’s power.
The incarnation of victory that goes to a war which needs you to win or occupy something and obtains a perfect victory with ‘little damage’ at all cost.
He’s not called ‘The God of War’ for no reason.
Thanks to that, they could endlessly replenish insufficient food, money and other things by plundering under a guise called loot.
But it had slowly reached its limit.
They can’t solve public sentiment and security through plundering.
An army that killed a father and big brother, husband, boyfriend, neighbor, and others were stationed in the town and village.
Even though they try to reconcile hostile public sentiment by executing executives and soldiers that hurt women regardless of their position and using money to buy food properly…
There is no good war in the first place.
What’s the use of buying food with stolen money? It’s not convincing to seek forgiveness after killing families.
Though they were better than invaders that didn’t even bother to do this kind of hypocritical action, the emerging empire’s territorial expansion was of extreme greed.
The emerging empire is going to collapse in a one-off defeat.
But there were countless kingdoms and armies destroyed by the emerging empire because we couldn’t obtain that one-off victory.
That was why I also needed a little bit of preparation.
“Sir Baby, is it this way?”
I had no intention of having a sit-down.
Not only was it not my style to defend one-sidedly, but it was also dangerous to exchange blows with this weak body.
The conclusion is?
Attack! Attack! And attack!
The plan was to invade them first before we got invaded.
I directed Nanny to the destination using the Arrow of Dark Energy.
The best-case scenario would be the young and energetic me going into the war myself and exterminating them all, but I wanted to avoid losing to the Z rank Demon King because my level got too high like what happened during the 6th round.
So I needed a ‘colleague’.
“Uh… Princess? There will be a restricted area if we keep going this way. To go back now would be a….”
You get lost!
The Sword Princess led the soldiers and followed us as she pleased as if she was escorting.
“Sir Baby obeys Sword Princess a lot. I’m envious.”
“That, that’s… Hmm hm. I’m so grateful for the Royal Grandson’ generous goodwill.”
We headed to the snowy mountain M.
Various brutal criminals hid here on the rough mountain, and as expected humans that had the largest population ratio amongst them were Demon worshippers.
Because they wouldn’t have had to commit crimes and run away if only the Dark Energy didn’t affect their personalities.
And like that, naturally a lair of demons was formed as the fugitive Demon worshippers gathered on the snowy mountain M.
They were living on while being controlled by the Demons that had been the longest-term resident of the place since forever and keeping the discipline and sanity to a bare minimum.
Alias, Lair of Demons C.
A few of these bounty-hunting grounds exist on every continent.
We ran across various monsters on our way to Lair of Demons C and the Sword Princess came forward and quickly handled them every time.
The Sword Princess.
Though it seemed like she would fight elegantly as if she’s dancing just like the pretty name name, she was only a ‘Sword Princess’ because she looked beautiful on the surface.
There was no elegance for the Sword Princess.
A blue sword aura spurted out of the Demon sword she summoned like fire.
The Demon sword was clearly cutting only air but the sword aura that was spurting out extended the sword blade and even killed a group of Orcs from afar with a single blow.
This was the Sword Princess’s battle-style.
A ‘zero contact sword skill’ that was born from an unbelievable talent.
“Princess. That is the last village”
The Sword Princess said after finishing the Orcs.
Just like what she said before, there was a restricted area right over the village in front of us.
But that was just a problem for ordinary people. Every year, challengers that tried to gain fame by subjugating Lair of Demons C challenged after doing final preparations in that village.
They didn’t think of the reason why the village doesn’t get attacked by the Lair of Demons C.
The two places had a symbiotic relationship.
The villains of the Lair of Demons C received daily necessities in return for not attacking the village.
Of course it was a secret between them.
The memories of the 1st round surged up one after another.
The colleagues that were like morons ran to the village without suspicion.
They kept spilling important information with their spouts without knowing their information was sent to the Lair of Demons.
Especially weaknesses, habits, skills, strengths, strategies….
When the villagers asked indirectly they just bragged about themselves like they were showing off.
So I warned them that the villagers were suspicious, but they showered me with criticisms saying, “How could you doubt these kind villagers? And you call yourself a hero?”
And the result was?
The subjugating that was supposed to be easy became harder.
I wanted to kill them all when they babbled “that was a tough battle.” after we barely won.
Sincerely with all might.
“Princess. I’ve sent scouts to the village and did an investigation.”
In that sense, the Sword Princess was someone who’s really careful. Though she had the flaw of cutting off anything with her sword aura when she was not satisfied.
The Sword Princess continued,
“They say that the village is really famous for their inn’s sulfur hot-spring. Since it has an excellent effect on calming down the body and soul, it can be estimated that it would also be a help for Princess’ postnatal care. And of course, for the Royal Grandson too.”
“I’m looking forward to it!”
“I will escort you right away.”
…she was careful but had no result.
It was right that the sulfur hot-spring of that village could calm down the body and soul, but she didn’t think about how it did.
We would know automatically when we got in.
Nanny dipped her body in the inn’s open hot-spring while hugging me.
“Haa! It’s relaxing. Sir Baby, is the water temperature alright?”
You call this relaxing?
▷ Race: Chaos Human
▷ Level: 265
▷ Job: Devil King (Hero→Level↓)
▷ Skills: Dark Energy (Z), Divinity (Z), Blessed (Z), Immortality (MAX), Survival (MAX),…
▷ Condition: Holy Sword, Demon Sword, Golem, Weakened
The hot-spring water had secretly been drugged.
They never got caught until now because it was an isolated village that didn’t have a special investigation team dispatched in, and the drug got mixed in the sulfur that was rich in minerals.
Above all things, the subtle nuisance value.
Just like Nanny’s review, it was hard to differentiate it from the relaxing feeling. That was why even a smart wise man fell for it.
Ah! Did that dude get nosebleed during this?
Anyways, we shouldn’t ignore this weakening.
Because I could fail and let the whole team fall into a crisis after boasting “leave this to me!” to the colleagues during cooperation.
…Speaking from experience.
Of course I was the victim.
“Excuse me, Princess, Your Royal Highness. I was going to refuse as the escorting knight of both of you, but the owner lady of this inn pushed me so…”
The voice of the Sword Princess that sounded like she was really felt at a loss was heard over the steam.
It was true.
The Sword Princess that only covered the front of her naked body with a somewhat thin towel walked into the hot-spring.
The memories of the 1st round surged up like a waterfall.
I needed to run away!
“Oh my! Sir Baby is trying to run that way as soon as he sees the Sword Princess. Hoho! What are you going to do when you get older if you’re already crazy for beauty now?”
“Beauty… it’s unsuitable for me.”
“So you’re not married yet?”
“Yes. As I said to you Princess, I have no thought of getting married until I meet a man that can win against me.”
“You’re not being sincere with that, right?”
“…so you still remember what I said when I was a child.”
“Huhu! Of course. We’re childhood friends, right? Here, hold him carefully.”
Nanny passed me onto the Sword Princess.
Was she trying to kill me?!
“I was strangely attracted to the ill-tempered boys that didn’t see me as a woman… Though they all changed after they grew up.”
“It’s difficult, huh. To not see a beauty like you as a woman…”
The two women had a chat about the past while reminiscing.
We left the life threatening hot spring after i fell asleep from exhaustion.
And I realized late that I was a ‘baby’.
Or was it because I had royal blood?
“Princess, Your Royal Highness. Please rest comfortably.”
Nanny and I got into the bedroom after parting ways with the Sword Princess, who refused the invitation of the inn owner to enjoy the sulfur hot-spring longer and escorted us until the bedroom entrance.
The Sword Princess didn’t know the reason why we went to the Lair of Demons C. So was Nanny that hugged me as we traveled to the Lair of Demons C.
We planned to get into the Lair of Devils C tomorrow, but that was to deceive the villagers that were spying.
The truth was that we were going tonight.
I summoned Saintess H.
“Oh my! Sorry.”
“I will have a walk with Master. Can you draw attention so we don’t get caught by the Sword Princess?”
“Yes. Leave it on me, Ms. Hippolia.”
Saintess H hugged me after confirming Nanny had left the bedroom and opened up her mouth,
“Master. I have a question.”
What is it?
“Nanny is a demon. It would be simple for you to control her with your Devil King’s power like what you did to that Lord, why aren’t you doing it? Because of that, the misunderstanding about you liking the Sword Princess is getting worse.”
…I wonder why.
I also don’t know the reason why.
“Oh my! I didn’t mean it in a bad way so don’t mind, Master.”
Saintess H that opened the bedroom door carefully, spread her 3 pairs of wings and flew straight to the Lair of Demons C.
I didn’t play cowardly like the Demons Worshippers from the Lair of Demons C that secretly drugged the hot-spring.
I let out Z rank Dark Energy.
Obey the Hero, you Demon King’s pawns!
The next day.
I woke up in Nanny’s arms.
As soon as I woke up I sucked on the breast that had swollen up tightly overnight and practiced walking as a morning exercise.
There was good progress.
Now I could flip over my body by myself without the help of a Skill.
The bedroom’s door was opened roughly and the Sword Princess l came running.
“Princess! Something serious happened! Outside….!”
A shout was heard from outside the village before she even finished her explanation.
“We assembled after hearing that someone great had come! We will be loyal until our lives and Dark Energy wear out! Please make good use of us that were merely living without purpose in the low Lair of Demons!”
Almost all the brutal criminals that lived on the snowy mountain M gathered up in front of the village.
Giving moral education while hitting the heads of the A rank Demons that had no talent in anything but murder and rape was worth it.
They didn’t make a single slip of the tongue throughout the pledge of allegiance.
I hope there are no stupid barbarians that doubt the cute me as the Demon King.
The Sword Princess l and villagers lost their words at the magnificent sight.
I didn’t care and arrogantly looked down at them through the window of the inn’s 2nd floor, in Nanny’s arms.
I’ll name you, for now, The Righteous Hero’s Recycled Corps.
The high level and skill that were specialized in battle stood out.
The system of this world was set up so that if you kill and destroy like its your job you will get stronger faster.
I will recycle you all effectively.
I raised my voice and shouted,
Shall we play a round with the emerging empire?
