The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 148
148 – Something has increased again
Seeing Eileen bowing her head to me, the summoner, a deep smile began to form on my lips.
An undead wizard with the body of a skeleton without a single flesh.
Known to have arisen accidentally from the corpses of those who handle powerful magical powers, or as a result of mutating themselves in search of more power,
It is known that they belong to the demon tribe in terms of classification, but in reality, their existence was very few even within the demon tribe.
Although I had seen various types of demons for quite a long time as a major member of the Demon Kingdom, I had only seen a lich less than five times.
In addition, as much as this rarity, the power of the liches was quite powerful,
In the case of Eileen right in front of my eyes, since she originally possessed considerable power as a High Priestess, she probably became a monster capable of dealing with a corps commander or two members of the SS.
Apart from this powerful power, the lich had a fatal flaw, and due to this, very few people chose to become a lich unless they were crazy about power.
The downside is… It was the fact that in exchange for powerful power, you would not be able to enjoy the so-called ‘happiness’ at all.
With only bones left, the body no longer feels warmth.
They become insensitive to any feeling other than pain.
Coziness, softness, and warmth… You are completely isolated from all sensations that you can feel because you have skin.
The body of the skeleton, which had completely disappeared and became empty, could no longer accept food and, of course, taste it. You won’t even be able to smell it.
Sexual intercourse is obviously impossible because the genitals are gone.
And, in this situation.
There is one more fact that is absolutely terrifying for those who have become rich.
It was the fact that, despite being isolated from all senses, the desire for happiness that they had experienced in life never disappeared, but rather remained stronger.
A body unable to eat longs for endless hunger and appetite,
A body that cannot feel warmth continues to want warmth.
And, the empty genital organs, which have nothing left, literally burn endlessly with insane sexual desire.
These terrible, unreachable desires endlessly stimulate the emotions of the rich,
As a result, those who become riches inevitably become existences that cling desperately to the feelings of battle, slaughter, and pain, unless they have accumulated training and become detached from their desires.
On the battlefield, those who want to kill more enemies before anyone else, suffer more than anyone else, and want to die in the end.
These were the miserable words of those who became liches.
It was the ‘punishment’ received by Aileen, who was bound by an unbreakable slave contract between the summoner and the summoned object through the Essence of Corruption given by the Demon King.
‘… Something has increased again.’
In addition to the beautiful woman who appeared before, a newly added existence today.
Looking at the skeletal guy wearing a robe and at the same time scattering unusual energy, Cassandra automatically knew what it was.
‘rich… is it? Well, I think I know roughly who it is, but there’s no need to point it out here.’
While thinking like that,
Cassandra began to smile as much as she could as she saw the demon king and his subordinates saying goodbye for a while to start the mission in front of her.
“Then, I would like to ask you, Your Majesty the Demon King.”
“You are the one who will take good care of this side’s work.”
After those words, the demon king and his group started moving on horseback.
At the last moment, looking at the back of the Demon King, who seemed to feel a sense of relief, Cassandra felt a little doubt, but
Soon, she stopped thinking about that part and immediately started thinking of the things she had to do.
‘Then, what I have to do first is to deal with the work coming from the elven kingdom. And right after it’s done, I’ll send troops to Macedonia right away.’
Originally, Cassandra had to go to the battlefield as a general, but now she has a lot of work to do as the country’s most powerful person.
As the demon king said right away, if the affairs of the elven kingdom were really resolved, it would be her job to deal with them as well.
Like that, feeling that apart from being a bit stingy, this is the duty of those in power.
Cassandra headed for the imperial castle lightly hugging the young emperor, who was clinging to her like a child relying on her mother.
‘Yes, but… Will it work? In fact, it was the elves who started this war. The chances of them stepping down at this point… ‘
The allied forces of the elven church nation and the beast nation, which are on a winning streak in the war against the Falcon Empire.
However, at this moment, the pope, who had been feeling deep joy in the situation where he was repaying the grudge from the past war with interest, was feeling deep bewilderment as he saw the messenger of the Demon Kingdom in front of him.
“that is… What do you mean?”
“I will say it again. His Majesty the Demon King asked the Holy Father to stop the war.”
A messenger from the Demon Kingdom who confidently speaks in a situation where he is alone with himself. Elias.
In response to her resolute words that she holds the position of commander in the Demon Kingdom, the pope responded with amazement and said to her.
“Stop the war… Do you think that is possible at this point? No matter how much our country of elves has become a vassal state of the Demon Kingdom, we can’t just step out of this situation where we are intertwined with other allies, and I don’t think so.”
The news of victory that is continuously heard and the territory that is expanding every moment through it.
Regarding giving up the intense joy it brings, the Pope had no intention of obeying, no matter how much it was an order from the Demon Kingdom.
The Pope clearly expresses his intention to reject the envoy in front of his eyes.
Seeing the pope like that, Elias spoke in a calm voice that didn’t waver at all.
“I knew you would say that. I fully understand the position of the Holy Father. But, you must stop now. Not for our Demon Kingdom, but for the Elven Religion.”
No matter how much she is in the position of coming as an envoy to a subject country, she nevertheless continues to speak extremely naturally while looking at herself as the monarch of a country.
In response, the pope began to get the feeling that this woman in front of him was not just here to tell a story,
Towards him, Elias continued to speak.
“We also fully understand the current situation on the front. Currently, the Falcon Empire is at a loss as it can’t stop the allies from attacking from both sides, and taking advantage of that gap, the Elven Church has not only regained its former territories, but also has already occupied several major cities in the empire.”
After talking to that point, Elias lightly drank from the teacup placed in front of him.
Then, while looking at Pope Julius, she continued with a voice filled with calmness.
“The war so far is certainly a wonderful situation. However, continuing the unreasonable march beyond this would rather poison the elven country. Even if it’s not because of our Demon Kingdom’s work.”
“… What does that mean?”
The pope slightly frowned at Elias’ attitude, as if he was speaking with sincerity rather than simply persuading himself.
Looking at him like that, Elias said with a cool yet quiet smile on his lips.
“You don’t even have to say… Doesn’t His Holiness the Pope already know to some extent how much the internal situation of the Elven Church has deteriorated?”
Intoxicated with victory, Elias’ words accurately pinpoint the reality that he was trying to ignore.
As a result, the pope began to shake for a moment.
Toward him, Elias, using his military and economic knowledge, began to tell the pope the unfiltered truth.
“Tribal Wars. In addition, due to the war with the Falcon Empire, the internal situation of the Elven Church is severely devastated. At least in this war, we were able to come this far thanks to the help of the Nation of Darkness and the Nation of Guardians, but beyond this, it is gradually reaching its limit. At least it doesn’t matter in the case of the recovered territory, but in the case of the original territory of the Falcon Empire, it won’t be easy to even clean up like this.”
“In addition, until now, we have continued to win by driving momentum, but if that is over and the Falcon Empire starts counterattacking, there is no way for the Church to stop it. In the worst case, it may be pushed back to the reclaimed territory.”
Elias, who gives the pope no room to refute while slashing the facts without mercy.
Then, with a clearer voice, she looked at the Pope in front of her eyes and said,
“That’s why, at this point, the Demon Kingdom and I are going to help the Elven Religion to withdraw. At this moment, when we can end the situation by not paying attention to our allies and making the best use of the elven kingdom while making excuses for our demon kingdom.”
