The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 30
30 – Sowing darkness in love and truth…
“Huh… Is that so?”
“That’s right, Mr. Shud.”
The ‘interrogator’ kneeling respectfully in front of him.
This time, the Nation of Darkness secretly hid his identity to infiltrate the state,
Through the words of the man who was originally her subordinate,
Shud started to think that the whole situation was going very interestingly.
‘The failure of this warrior party like that… There is no end to human greed, but the emperor’s desire certainly knows no bounds. Well… that’s the same with His Majesty the King of Darkness.’
The party of warriors who have been dispatched to exterminate and actually assassinate the demon king several times and have failed that much.
Nevertheless, as the keynote itself of hitting the snake’s head is meaningful, there has never been a big noise about it.
However.. apart from such countless failures.
This time, the defeat of the warriors party, which was achieved again, was trying to bring about a huge typhoon that was different from before.
A fierce typhoon associated with a dirty fight called the political arena, not simply because of military losses.
In the meantime, the people who had been sleeping inside the tribal union
The pope of the elven kingdom
It was related to the power struggle between the emperors of the Falcon Empire.
“So, how far does the emperor seem to intend to proceed with this matter?”
“I don’t know exactly, but I think it’s probably literally about to see the end. It was to the extent that I immediately requested cooperation from His Majesty the King of Darkness.”
“but… There have been several similar incidents like now, but it was the first time that the national power gap between the Elven Churches and the Falcon Empire had widened to this extent. It is probably natural to try to find a justification at a time like this.”
With those words, Shud slowly drank his teacup and began to consider the current situation again.
Under the name of the world tree and the race chosen by the gods, the elven religion has governed the religion of the continent.
Although its own national power was limited due to the very small population of elves, nevertheless, the religious authority of the elven church that had been going on for hundreds of years stretched all over the continent.
The places represented by the temples built by the elves were located in large and small villages on the continent and became religious bases.
The solid religious public sentiment coming out of it and the huge ‘offering’ collected through it have been a major factor in making it impossible for even the most powerful nation, the Falcon Empire, to take lightly the elven kingdom.
Although the population of its own is small, the elven kingdom exerts great influence over the nations of the continent using the fence of religion.
The strong religious authority of the elven kingdom and the pope that had been going on for such a long time.
Naturally, it was regarded as a thorn in the eye of the Falcon Empire, a country with the strongest national power on the continent and aiming for a position as the leader.
The Falcon Empire wants to somehow neutralize the influence of the elven kingdom and reign as the sole and unwavering ruler of the continent.
To this end, the emperor tried to shake the situation by nurturing priests like Amelda himself and entrusting them with religious appointments, but despite this, he could not shake the authority of the elven pope, who was so strong.
This warrior party incident occurred in this situation.
The disastrous defeat of the warriors party, which began with greater expectations than usual, with a huge halo called ‘The Pope’s Oracle’.
This became a good excuse for the emperor and the empire to shake the authority of the pope and the elven church, which had been in an absolute position, from the root, and in this regard, the emperor was already preparing to officially catch the pope. was
Currently interrogating the warriors of the warrior party, including Shud, separately is part of this plan.
Regarding this impending storm,
A small smile began to form on Shudd’s lips as he calculated how he should act.
‘The confrontation between the Pope and the Emperor… To be honest, there’s nothing too bad from our point of view. After all, they’ll be enemies after we end the Demon Kingdom…’
While thinking like that,
Shudd put down the teacup with a relaxed feeling, thinking that whichever side would win would benefit her and the Nation of Darkness.
A few minutes ago, even before entering this room, Shud had been feeling uneasy inside.
However, the moment I discovered the figure of the subordinate in front of my eyes.
And the moment you recognize that the political dynamics behind it exist in the background.
Shud was able to recognize that the Nation of Darkness had already reached out to this side, and since then, he has been comfortably accepting the situation as if he were on vacation.
Of course, apart from that, in order to hide his shame and protect the other colleagues… To be honest, for Torare’s sake, as I said beforehand, Shude licked his lips.
In addition, as this is a story that fits the existing plan of the King of Darkness, who decided to cooperate with the emperor,
In a way, it could be said that Shud was actually moving steadily as the King of Darkness and the Emperor wanted.
‘In this way, as a result, our lies will not be exposed. And even if he finds out the truth somehow, the emperor would rather define it as a lie and bury it.’
So, I think I’m lucky in many ways…
At the same time,
Slightly regretful at the fact that I couldn’t completely let go of Amelda, whom I had hoped to erase for sure at this opportunity.
A cold smile began to form on Shudd’s lips.
‘No matter how hard it may be, I can’t disappoint the expectations of His Majesty the King of Darkness. Finally, even if it’s just for me and Torare-sama to have a sweet future together… ‘
Amelda said that the hero was defeated because of the betrayal of the female warriors.
In fact, strictly speaking, it might be a bit difficult to say that the betrayal itself was directly related to the hero’s defeat.
To tell the truth, it’s just because the hero was weaker than I thought and the demon king was stronger than I thought.
It could be said that the pope’s oracle or something was, in fact, just bullsh*t.
There was nothing wrong with making up a story like this for her, who was determined to tell a lie in the first place.
Even now, as there is a great cause for the sake of the country and compatriots, not for personal gain, there was very little reluctance in the mind about spewing out lies.
Of the false stories mixed with this truth of her,
Brutus’ face began to show deep astonishment.
“that… You mean something like that happened? How… how can such nonsense happen…”
As a result of losing their hearts to mere porters, the female warriors of the warrior party kicked away the opportunity given by God and betrayed the expectations of many people.
In response, Brutus began to tremble in a deep rage.
Seeing him like this, Amelda bowed her head and shed tears.
“sorry! I… Even if I had acted a little straight… Even if you didn’t fall for the porter’s threat and betray the hero, this would happen… !”
In reality, she was also one of the instigators who went over to Torare and proceeded with the work.
However, there was no need to talk about such things at the point of choosing ‘the safety of the motherland’ after abandoning her colleagues who were likely to abandon her anyway according to the flow of the national situation.
A sense of guilt still remained in a corner of their hearts, but such feelings could be neutralized to some extent through life, ‘they would have abandoned themselves anyway’.
In the first place, the danger in the present situation was all the more so as it was not others but himself.
‘It’s already spilled water anyway… What’s wrong with devoting yourself to your country and compatriots? Yes, all of this is an inevitable choice for the country. Taking what I can get in the process is just a bonus.’
While shedding tears like that, Amelda shifts the blame onto her colleagues, saying that she was also a victim.
And about this
Brutus said to Amelda, as if now was not the time to worry about such things.
“Stop it, there is no time for apologies now. If we don’t somehow make this truth known correctly, something really irreparable will happen.”
“I agree. The humans of that wicked warrior party will surely fall for the Emperor’s trick and give false testimony without hesitation. Defaming the hero’s honor will be in their favor as well.”
Unlike the time when he was obsessed with nervousness just before, the teacher seemed to have regained his usual coolness again.
Amelda, recognizing the fact that her teacher had come to believe her lie, began to breathe a deep sigh of relief.
“Anyway, I’m glad I did. To think that the person who led the matter was a person named Aileen, the high priest of the emperor… If this fact is known, the cause of the emperor who is trying to take advantage of this incident will also suffer.”
“yes! That’s right. that evil woman… No matter how fake he was appointed by the emperor, it is absolutely unacceptable for him to do such a thing while in the position of high priest serving God.”
Amelda denounces Eileen without hesitation at the teacher’s words.
As long as she had already made up her mind, there was no reason to look back, so she continued her offensive words for self-defense as actively as possible.
And, seeing Amelda’s attitude, Brutus nodded slowly and spoke to her in a serious voice.
“If so, I don’t have time to delay any longer. I need to move as soon as possible before the emperor manipulates and proclaims the testimony of this warrior party.”
“I think so too.”
After those words, Brutus immediately gets up from his seat.
Right after that, he used the key he had as an interrogator to free the magic suppression handcuffs from Amelda’s hands.
“Let’s start right now. Before the Emperor catches on, you must return to your country and tell the truth. Even if this happens to me, surely. Do you know what I mean?”
“yes! I understand, Master. I will make sure to inform the world of the atrocities of those filthy warrior party guys and bring justice to them!”
At the words of Brutus, who spoke with determination, Amelda answered with a firm tone.
With the determination to let the world know the Gura she created.
