There are many mistake yesterday… and I have one question. Isn’t ‘it’s is the short of it is and also it was’? Because that’s what I thought all this time!
Well that’s it. Enjoy the chapter.
Diana and Aleira were running toward Keith.
Ginlow and Victor were behind them.
“Finally, finally, my longing came true … Defeating the hero, as expected of Demon King-sama!”
Diana’s purple eyes shone.
“With this, Demon King-sama is the victor. I am honored to be able to serve you.”
Ginlow bowed his silver body.
Victor was still hard to read what he was thinking as usual.
“And Demon King-sama.”
Aleira said, licking her lips.
“Can I kill them? I personally want to see where the hero suffers and dies!”
“No, you don’t have to.”
“They are no longer a hero party.”
Keith snapped his finger.
The skill stolen from Meralda – [Enhancement].
The three woke up at the same time.(TN: anyone know what is the best translation for this気付け because it sounds weird if I translate it as enhancement. I thought it was someting like buff so I translate it as enhancement, o maybe I’m the one that is wrong.)
The three of them now had full HP.
But their figure was the same as level one villager.
“Sh … sh… shit!”
Germ got up and tried to pull the legendary sword Fragnam.
But no matter how much effort he put, the sword didn’t even move a bit.
There was no power in Germ anymore.
“Such … all the efforts so far … all … all of it …”
“You still have the reward from the king, right? You can live peacefully from now on.”
“Kuu … Uuu … Uuu …!”
The three shed tears.
They were no longer a hero party.
Just a bunch of villager that were crying together.
“Hey, Keith … we are friends, right? Give me back my strength …”
Germ was staggering and approached Keith.
“I will apologize for what happened in the inn …. I am sorry to try to kill you at that time…!”
Upon hearing that, Mary opened her eyes.
“You’re trying to kill … what …”
“That’s right! We tried to kill Keith! It was the King’s order, and we couldn’t do anything …”
Mary’s hand that held a cane shook.
“Keith-san … something like that happen …”
“I didn’t want you to know about it.”
Fighting a friend should have been a great shock for Mary.
But Keith was the Demon King.
Thinking of a Demon King as an enemy was a very natural thing for hero party.
But not that night.
That was a fight about human betrayal.
Keith didn’t want Mary to know such a dirty fact.
“I will apologize … so give it back …!”
A sharp sword stretched at the neck of Germ, who was persistent.
The sword came out of Ginlow’s body.
“What will you do with that power? Do you want to face the Demon King again?”
“It’s … uuuu”
“For those without bravery and righteousness, no power is needed”
Germ sat down there.
“Aleira, cast [gate]. The destination is in front of the castle. If I return them as they are, they will be a monster’s food.”
When Aleira casts the spell, a black [Gate] appeared along with the lightning.
“Now, if you don’t go quickly, the [gate] will close.”
“Shit! Shit! Shit! Why is it like this … Why …”
Germ stood up and then was sucked into the gate while cursing.
The skinny Zott followed Germ without saying anything with a stupid face.
Meralda, who couldn’t accept reality, dragged her staff while muttering something.
Keith finally spoke.
“I will stop thinking about defeating the Demon King and live happily.”
They looked at each other for a while.
Mary who was at a loss.
Mary now knew about the betrayal.
――She was not in a state where she could easily organize her head.
Nevertheless, Mary knew the kindness of Keith who sent the hero party without taking their lives.
Marie bowed down and was sucked into the [Gate]
“I’m so happy, Demon King-sama!”
Aleiraa hugged Keith’s arm.
“Did you see the hero’s eyes? It’s like a dog! If he is killed, his scream must be beautiful!”
“Maybe it is”
“What are you doing, Aleira!”
Diana tried to tear off Aleira who was clinging to Keith.
“What is it, Diana too, even though you were carried by Demon King-sama with princess carry!”
“Princess carry? Don’t say something that is difficult to understand!”
Memories of when she got drunk had slipped out of Diana’s head.
“I’m going to go home and rest…”
Revenge had been fulfilled.
Keith had nothing to say anymore.
He wished for Mary’s happiness – that’s all.
“Let’s go home. Go back to our Demon King Castle. When we go back, let’s drink some tea.”
“I understand. I’ll make the arrangement.”
Demon King of Phantom Thief and four heavenly king.
The five shadows had disappeared beyond the Miasma, into the black Demon King Castle.
