「I am thinking of stepping down from the throne」


The next morning, in the audience hall .

Aura and I were standing below, and the king was sitting on his throne .

The king was very exhausted, he was a wrinkly old man in the first place, but it seems like he had become much older than that; he’s weakened so much that he could die anytime .



「I was blinded . To think that I took a monster as a queen, to think that I was controlled by a monster」


The kind covered his face with his hands .


「Astrea, Clora, Shima, Daphne, Eunice, Lena, Leda……」


He called out names, his daughters’ names .


「Ohhhhhhh……forgive me, forgive me……」


He wailed while covering his face, repenting to the daughters that no longer exist .




Aura who was by my side also cried .

Honestly, I’m troubled . I don’t know what face to make . I can’t laugh or smile right .

I could only stay quiet .

Stay quiet and look at them, waiting for the two to calm down .

Aura returned earlier .


「Otou-sama, this kingdom still needs Otou-sama . Please continue, please continue to lead us, lead the people」

「The sin of dragging a monster within us……is heavy . It cannot be forgiven other than stepping down the throne」


「And there, the next king……is……uhh……」


The king stutters, he took glances at Aura, it seems like he’s hesitating about something .

He had said it clearly when leaving his throne, what is he hesitating after all this time?


『He probably can’t say that his son would be the next king?』


Eleanor said . I see, that’s how it is huh .

The reason why he killed his daughters while being controlled by Aerine is to make his son the king; after regaining his senses, it’s probably hard for him to say that his son is the next king .

『That obsession and the his weak heart was probably the reason he was controlled』


That’s probably right . I also think so .

The king stutters . Later than Eleanor, Aura also noticed that .

Aura kneels, and said while bowing her head .


「The crown prince should be the next king . Aura Torideca Comotoria, as weak as I am, I am willing to support the new king as a vassal」


With a formal tone, she said what the king wants .

The king clearly got relieved, and his expression got bright .


『That’s why he got taken in』


Eleanor didn’t have mercy .

I also……agree with her pretty much .



I was invited to Aura’s house .

It’s a splendid mansion that stands in the most lively place in the royal capital Krades . It’s several times more luxurious than my mansion, ‘as expected of a princess’ I thought .

Welcomed by many butlers and maids, I was passed through to the drawing room .

After waiting for a while, Aura appeared .

Her appearance right now, wearing a princess dress, is the most beautiful that I have seen her .

Aura straightens her back, and walks gracefully towards me .

She stood in front of me, stares, and bows her head .


「Thank you very much . All of it, is thanks to you」

「Yeah, be grateful」

「Yes, thank you very much」


Aura bowed her head again once, and said to me .


「I have talked to Otou-sama . You are now a viscount……one rank above baron」

「I see」

「Also, the land that bestowed before, he says that you will be given a vast land more than that」

「Land? Ahh, there was something like that right」


I remembered Comotoria’s messenger that came to my mansion .

If I’m correct, at that time, that man told me that he’d give me a land other than the baron title .

I didn’t have interest with that, so I had forgotten up until now .

「Is it vast?」

「Yes . It seems like your noble rank could not be raised immediately, so the land was increased」

「Fu〜n . That, it’s troublesome, so you manage it」


「I don’t have that much interest in lands or territories . Honestly, noble ranks too」

「N-No way……」


Aura’s expression breaks off .

She had a princess-like refined face when she entered the room, but now, she was almost crying .


「I cannot give my gratitude back then . Is there anything……is there anything else you want?」


With a face that is about to cry, she asked me as if to beg .




I answered immediately .

From the start, I was only planning to request that .

Aura got dumbfounded .



「Yeah, you」

「Me, you say, what do youーーah!」


She was a little bit late to understand, but Aura realized .

The way her face blushes, it’s no doubt that she understood correctly .


「That’s right, let me embrace you」

「Do not joke with me, rather than the viscount title, rather than land」

「I’m not joking . You’re a good woman, a good woman is good enough for a reward」

「……are you saying that seriously」

「I’m serious」


I immediately answered again .

Aura’s blushed face reddens .

She blushed, and got restless .

It’s a little bit vexing . It’s not like she doesn’t like it, so I carried Aura like you carry a princess .


「Where’s the room that has a bed」

「Eh, ehhh??」

「Where is it」

「Uhmm, you go left there」



While holding Aura, I walked imposingly .

When we went outside, we encountered servants there .

The butlers and maids, they looked at me with a surprised face .

Aura covered her face with her hands . It seems like she’s too embarrassed that she would die .



「What, even if you say it now that you don’tーー」

「From the time that you saved me, I have loved you」


Aura said with a voice as small as a mosquito’s cry . The way she said that while covering her face was so dangerously cute .

I took Aura to the room that has a bed on it, and ‘took’ her as a reward .



Within the darkness, small lizard monsters squirms .

The lizards gathered at one point .

With that dark haze as a point, as if a black hole was there .

The child lizards came and jump into that, came and jump into that, repeatedly .

After that, the black hole gradually got bigger; it got bigger every time child lizards jumped into it .

Repeating that, for one whole day .

The black haze finally materializes, and broke just like an egg .




A lizard came out from the inside .

The thing that came out of the broken egg was Aerine in her lizard form . However, her appearance was small, just the size of a child .

Aerine’s face was full of hatred .


「That man……I won’t forgive him, I will never forgive him!」


The words she spits out, they were also filled with hatred .


「I will torture him, torture the ones around him……I will kill him slowly that he would regret he was alive!!」


With blood-shot eyes, a strong will could be felt with her declaration that she would do anything so that it can be done .




One man appeared without sounds .

Wearing a black outfit, a man that has an appearance of an assassin .


「You, you came at the right time」


It looks like Aerine and the man know each other .

It’s not like her hatred had completely disappeared, but it lessened when she saw the man .


「Take me back with you, when I regained my strength, that manーー」


Without waiting for Aerine finish talking, the man pierces out his hand .

He pierces her fiercely with the track of a body blow .

His hand pierced through Aerine’s body . His hand that was coated in blood had sharp nails; it didn’t look like a human’s .



「You didn’t seem like you’d lose your hatred, you know」


The man said with a merciless tone .


「The who cannot be controlled would be destroyed」

「Even so……I……」

「My bad」


The man used his remaining hand and pierced through Aerine, and tears her into two .

Aerine who had just regenerated had been torn into two, and this time for real, she died .

The man only took a glance at her, and looked at the other side as if he had lost his interest .


「To treat Aerine as a child like this, stronger than expected」


Unlike his words before, a bit of weakness could be felt with his words .


「We are stronger than anybody else . He probably cannot be stopped with one on one anymore」


He whispered, and let out a sigh this time .


「The man who subordinates the Demon Sword……the man who gives birth to a new Demon Sword . I must make everyone thoroughly not get involved with him」


Saying that, the man disappeared into the darkness .

In a place where Kakeru is not present, the darkness, it changed its movement greatly .
