Chapter 3

The first Princess and Sweet disaster

I told the Demon Lord to give the Royal Crest back to the Princess before she left, so that it could become our reward if our plan was to succeed .

In exchange, the Princess had to pay us the insignificant fee of ten gold coins . I could pay three months of maintenance for my guild with them, but that’s fine . Money makes the world go round .

Three days went by .

Manarina challenged to duel the Prince of Vinceburg and I had already received reports about her victory . How did she win? Thanks to my help, of course, but it's not like she knows that . I didn’t want to disclose my secret even when she would come again to give us the reward .

The truth is that I have absolute confidence in this method, because I used it countless times before defeating the Demon Lord .

Support Magic . I can infuse food with it, so that no one would notice anything, and just by eating it, one's abilities would increase exponentially .

The Princess’s score rose by a thousand points after she drank the enchanted milk . The kumis enhanced her physical abilities and the millennial peach granted her magical resistance . The gap between her score and Prince of Vinceburg’s was now reversed and Manarina had easily defeated him with a single strike .

I made sure that some of my guild's members witnessed the battle . Manarina had her brown hair tied and she wore a snow-colored, light armor and a focused expression . As the Prince of Vinceburg was bragging, she disarmed him of his saber with just one slash . The scene left the King and the aristocrats flabbergasted .

Everything worked out perfectly, but doing things in such a way was risky . If the Princess overestimated her own power, things could become troublesome . But I guessed she didn’t get any chance to fight anyone else, and even if she did, she might have won with enough training anyway .

If we manage to win her trust, she might come here again if she needs help for another duel .

Let’s make one thing clear, it was just a buff, I wasn’t doping anyone . Weak adventurers searching for an extra kick even when they’re training are nothing new, and many already came knocking at my door for that miraculous drink .

The self-proclaimed lady-in-waiting still hadn’t shown up, but sneaking out the royal castle without anyone noticing shouldn’t be an easy task . Maybe I could see her again in a matter of days .

"Dick, why didn’t you tell her that you understood who she was?"

Aileen had just returned from a hard, but pretty profitable job we entrusted her . She didn’t want to join my guild and neither she wanted to be known as "the martial arts master who took part in the expedition after the Demon Lord" . She wanted to be a free spirit . Sometimes I ask her if she is interested in accepting a job, since the payment is pretty good and it was up to the guild to pay for the taxes .

When she turned seventeen, her nickname changed from "Boing boing" to "Boom boom", and even though her muscle-head behavior was still the same, finding out that she could make her own drinks and was pretty good at cooking was a pleasant surprise . That’s why she helped me in the kitchen sometimes, but every time she always left from the back door . She didn’t like to stand out, exactly like a certain someone .

Although I was a jack of all trades, my cooking was fairly good, so when the guild’s cook wasn’t around, we were the only ones in the kitchen at night . It’s not like I drink all the day throughout the year, you know .

"Because her efforts to conceal it would have been wasted, otherwise . " "Ah, I see . Anyway, it’s rumored that the Count of Vinceburg was so shocked, that he didn’t get up from bed the day after . What will happen to him?" "He is a prince, not a count . He wanted to get married as soon as possible, so it seems that his lovers alienated him . Among them were other aristocrats’ daughters, so this caused some problems in the high offices . It's pretty harsh, but he deserves it . "

The Demon Lord was on her break since the guild was closed, but she helped me of her own free will . She was especially good at peeling root vegetables . Aileen challenged her to see who was the best at it, so I indulged myself in the few things left to do .

Cody was still in a difficult situation, given the relationships between nobles and knights, but Manarina talked to her father, and she managed to grant our condition . The nobles’ requests to knights decreased sharply and the guilds finally started to receive more jobs . This was a real blessing for me .

The next time Cody dropped by to drink, I wanted to hear his thoughts about it . I would keep him drinking even after he was already drunk . I wanted to see him feeling good, for once .

"Anyway, rumors say that Manarina is a real beauty . But now that she reached adulthood, wouldn’t she receive more marriage proposals?" "She would never accept them . She was struck by my Master’s charm . " "What are you saying… I just kept drinking in the background . She must have already forgotten about me . Also, she always called herself a lady-in-waiting when she was here . "

As I was saying that, the moment she took off her hood came back to my mind . I would never forget about her wonderful face .

But I already felt something like that five years before .

It was when I first met Mylarka . Until she told me "You're only accompanying us . You're nothing special", I was intrigued by my teammates and was really happy that we were going to have an adventure together .

She was interested only in Annihilation Magic and cute, little animals, but she didn’t show that side of her to men . She was beautiful, and right after we finished our journey, she received countless recruitment requests .

But no one could break through her armor . "You won’t interest me even in a million years", she always replied, and severed ties right away . She was probably still alone .

Sometimes, Mylarka would drop by to complain about something, but a year before Manarina’s duel, she misunderstood my relationship with Aileen and stopped visiting . If she had insulted me, it would have been fine . Melancholy tightened my heart .

"By the way, didn’t the Princess attend the same school as…?" "Mh? What was that, Aileen?" "Hahaha, nothing, really . Maybe I’m wrong, but you might find out soon enough . " "What are you talking about? C’mon, I’m curious . Otherwise, I can’t focus on anything else . " "Grrr, I knew that demon was skilled at playing with my Master’s heart… I should learn from her…"

Aileen’s words picked my interest, but even though I kept asking her what was that about, she never gave me a proper answer .

Then, as we were still cooking, the doorbell rang .

"A customer? At this hour?" "I can’t go . Demon Lord, you go, please . "

She started walking, and both me and Aileen froze, making sure to not make any noise .

Two girls stepped in the shop wearing a long overcoat . One of them was Princess Manarina, while the other one was…

"We are not open yet, but how can I help you?" "I want to talk with your Guild Master… Dick Silver, show yourself! Hiding is pointless!"

After a year, she was still the same . She wasn’t gentle with me, but her voice echoed in my ears like the soft sound of bells in the summer breeze .

She took off her hood, freeing her long, blond hair . Even without confirming it by seeing the earrings that restricted her powers, I knew who she was .

Mylarka Iris . The beautiful and strong-willed young girl with incredible intelligence, who became a teacher at the Magic academy at the tender age of fourteen, and was known by the alias "Sweet disaster" due to some frightening experiments regarding Annihilation Magic .

No, she didn’t look like a young girl anymore… she was a beautiful girl . Rumors said every guy in the school fell head over heels for her, but since until now she turned them all down already . Even if she acted cool with her arms crossed and her intimidating aura, being here meant that she overcame a certain complex .

Why was she looking for me together with the Princess? I tried to fantasize on the answer, but the fire that burned in her eyes looked quite unfriendly .
