Congratulations! The Demon Lord has evolved to 〇〇〇!
[…..I think……I have somehow fallen in love with you!]
It was a really sudden confession.
—-Until now, she had never let anyone get close to her. On magic power alone, she rose to the top and became the Demon Lord.
The people around her were all below-garbage waste, she never encountered a person who could match up to her until now. Even the possibility of such an existence was never given a thought.
And the result of that was decisive defeat by the man in front of her.
It was complete and utter defeat.
She, who received an overwhelming culture shock and fell into a panicked state, mistook panic for love. The time it took for that to happen wasn’t even that long.
No, to be precise…….it was the effect of the harem attribute.
Even though God said it was made as a joke, one way or the other, it seemed the settings of the attribute were done properly.
The Demon Lord, with flushed cheeks, walked towards Yuuki and threw her arms around him.
In quick succession, she buried her head into Yuuki’s chest.
The Demon Lord’s bondage type clothes had a lot of exposure in many places.
And Yuuki only had on a pair of underwear. Their skin and thighs came in contact with each other.(TL Note:0.o)
A sweet sigh from the Demon Lord, who had turned into a young girl in love, tickled Yuuki’s chest.
At that moment, something hard hit the abdominal region of the Demon Lord.
[…..What is this between your groin?]
According to words of the Demon Lord——inside the underwear, a tent was being pitched.
‘This is really bad,’ thought Yuuki.
Well, because of this situation, it was expected to be surprised.
To be frank, it was a fantasy Onee-san with deep red eyes. Furthermore, she was really pretty.
If I accepted her here, it would be easy to imagine graduating from my virginity. Therefore, the junior reacted honestly.
However, Yuuki had an important reason to not accept her feelings.
Therefore, heartbrokenly pointing at the tent between his legs, he told a sad lie.
[……..This is a Holy sword. It deals large damage to demons. ………And I have yet to dispel my battle state with you.]
The Demon Lord was astonished.
To be that powerful unarmed and to on top of that have a Holy Sword.
—-This man, how bottomless was his power?
Thereupon, the Demon Lord realized how small her power was in comparison.
—–Come to think of it, the life of a Demon Lord was nothing but boredom.
Depending on the talent I was born with, I didn’t even seek money or power.
Only the parents said, “to have that much power. If that’s the case, you should aim to be Demon Lord.” Since then, I was praised as a genius by my surroundings.
For some reason or another, I aimed towards being the Demon Lord. The path of stairs leading to it was climbed without any effort, and before I noticed it, I was seated on the Demon Lord’s throne.
And, the war against the humans was ended by one’s own overwhelming power too.
From there, it was just one worthless day after another.
The aides handled the politics. My job during the war was the ultimate weapon in case of emergencies. However, it was only that.
There was nothing to do but to just sit on the throne all day long and occasionally stamp some documents. If you were to refer to human years, I was a 17-year-old girl……From that point of view I can say—–It was really boring
However, she, at this moment of time, was seeing a whole new world.
One’s power didn’t work at all. This was a new universe!(TL Note:she puts it that way twice)
And she, just now for the first time since she was born, experienced such a throbbing in her heart——the throbbing of love.
She began to think of just one thing.
The Demon Lord’s throne she won without effort, there were no lingering attachments to that place.
[If possible, I wish to be by your side. I’m even resolved to quit my current job…..]
Yuuki heaved a deep sigh.
Quit her job……As I thought, there was a reason behind the sudden confession.
[Was it that much of a shock that her magic didn’t work…..Well, I guess that was the final blow concerning the situation about her job.]
So, as for the girl before my eyes, I think she has no talent for magic.
At any rate, judging from appearances, she seemed to be around 17 years old—she would be a low ranked sorcerer if she was staying at a location where slimes appear.
In her own way it seems, she had some insecurities about her job future.
Due to being too weak, she would always live side by side with death in fear and despair at her own lack of talent.
And along with that original source of suffering…..came an opponent who wasn’t affected by her magic—–Her spirit must have been broken.
And thus, she had reached a conclusion.
If oneself was weak, that’s fine. I already have no life after this. So in the future, in order to live, one must rely on a man, even if it meant being akin to a parasite.
Therefore, the sudden love confession.
—–Fu, how naive fantasy Onee-san, did you think it would be that easy? After all, I am the weakest in this world. Moreover, I have yet to build even my own basic livelihood in this world. Therefore, there’s no way I can handle another person’s troubles.
[Let me tell you first, I cannot marry you.]
[Eh……? Is it……no good?
[It’s no good]
Then, Yuuki began to think……Well, let’s assume I said it was alright.
The girl in front of my eyes has such a cute face. It would be a shame for such a good woman to rot here.
There were other ways than to rely on me like a parasite. What would happen to her own self-reliance?
And therefore, I made up my mind. “The resolution to quit her current job” was stated.
Somehow or another, she persisted in her job as a sorcerer.
So, if we assume that she doesn’t have the talent for it……as she can only manage low rank magic—-If she just stays bound by the limits of Sorcerer and does not see the other paths, wouldn’t her possibilities be thrown away?
[Besides, if you’re resolved, it would be better if you quit once and for all if that profession is useless……Instead of being stubborn, try another way. For you, there should be something that you want to do other than your current job. Don’ t you have a future dream?]
She discouragedly hung her head like everything had been seen through. Tears collected slightly in her eyes.
—–Truly…..This was a man without limits. To declare Demon Lord as a small job.
And the talk about future dreams.
I sat on the Demon Lord’s throne without purpose. Before this man’s eyes, he was able to see into the gap of one’s heart.
[A future…dream? To me there is no …… such dream. If I had to say….it would be to walk the same road together, by your side]
—–How persistent, this Onee-san! I cannot afford to support a woman who won’t become independent of me!
The way things are going…..Yuuki thought of the possibility of her becoming a stalker and following him.
While pointing to the far west and opening his mouth, he said an unreliable remark in order to keep her away.
[Well, there’s no feeling of wanting to be with you. So… a dream huh. That’s right, how about you aim for the desert?]
[…..Desert…..in that barren wasteland, what the heck is there?]
[Digging up the desert is good. In our world, that’s where dreams are buried.]
The Demon Lord laughed.
He was, perhaps, explaining the difficulty of finding a dream, and also saying that when you have found it, there will be difficulty in achieving it too.
That is, digging up the desert and finding buried treasure; it was that type of extraordinary thing.
She nodded a lot, and the Demon Lord said.
[You’re right, my current self doesn’t have a dream, I’m a dull woman without a purpose in life….If that’s the case I’m not qualified to stand by your side. I will go on a journey to improve myself. If….if so, I will aim for the desert until I find a dream]
[Oh, so you are going for the desert. Someday, I hope you can show me your matured figure.]
Yuuki said so while nodding.
‘Give up on the road of a sorcerer. There was a chance things might go better as a swordswoman,’ was what I was thinking.
I’ll bide my time until she becomes successful as a swordswoman and becomes an independent career women, and then I’ll be supported by her.
[You really are different…..will you listen to a small wish of mine?]
[What is it?]
[If you say you can’t accept me as I am now………one day, I will grow into a woman who can be a match for you. When that time comes, I will appear before you again…….At least my mantle……I want to leave it by your side.]
The demon Lord held out her mantle to Yuuki.
Yuuki received it with a refreshing smile.
——No matter how you look at it, it was bad to stay in just a pair of underwear.
With this, Yuuki was relieved to be able to hide his exposed back.
[Well then….until the day we meet again]
The next day, the Demon Lord’s castle was in an uproar similar to a beehive being poked.
The strongest Demon Lord in history, 300 years old, 17 years old in human years, suddenly declared her retirement from the throne.
To the influential demons who were trying to stop her, she said, with a bright expression that failed as demonic in every way,
(TL Note: could not make head or tails of this line—–引き止める有力魔族達に、彼女は憑物でも落ちたかのような晴れやかな顔でこういったと言う。)
[I—–will head towards the desert. In that place, is where dreams are buried]
Former Demon Lord: Natasha Erigaul.
—–Several years later, would be a girl referred to as “The Oil Baron.”
