The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 92
92 – Dirty Nation of Darkness!
Eileen and her men are moving towards the ecliptic.
But at this moment, their steps were incomparably heavier than when they had just left Thebes.
They were the ones who left the city burning with the will to repay the grudge suffered by the demons.
However, the people in the target area were not demons, and the demons they were looking for were in a situation where their whereabouts were unclear.
It’s only natural that they can’t get their spirits up in a situation where they’ve lost momentum.
And among those caught up in such a subdued atmosphere, Eileen, who was leading the group, was also included.
Although the fundamental reason is different, she is not very motivated like the others.
Even until she set foot in the ecliptic, she had a sense of duty to work diligently to some extent.
However, now that some time has passed since then and I have calmly cooled my head.
She was in the midst of a sharp downturn from the loss she felt more clearly.
‘Torare-sama has left… Shud That bitch is Torare-sama… ‘
In fact, Eileen actively participated in the battle to save Torare from the clutches of demons.
However, that Torare was not a demon, but it was a situation where it fell into the hands of Shud, who had a reasonable right to it.
Of course, it was far better than having the man she loved in danger, but the fact that she would not be able to see him or even sleep with him for at least a while was enough to make her depressed.
at that time…
A group of subordinates cautiously approached her location.
As the actual leader of the group, she looked at them as if they had something to say and asked in a calm voice.
“What happened? Is there something important going on?”
“Ah me… that is… I mean.”
The soldiers seemed to hesitate for a moment at Eileen’s question.
Regarding this, Eileen spoke to them with a benevolent smile on her lips as part of her duties.
“it’s okay. If you have something to say, feel free to do so. Even though I am in the position of high priest, as a servant of God, I also have an obligation to listen to you.”
Aileen talks while thinking that maybe she is going to confess some kind of confession.
The soldiers looked at her and began to open their mouths in a calm voice, as if the burden on their minds had been relieved a little.
“It’s true, Mr. As we came all the way here, we pondered… It must be something strange.”
“It’s strange… what do you mean?”
“The witches we met before. Although it was dark at the time, I couldn’t see it well, but somehow, it seems that there was someone among them who looked similar to the demons I saw in Thebes the other day.”
“yes? what is that… ”
“I… Me too. Of course, it didn’t have horns like demons, but I remember it clearly. There was a witch with the same face as the one who killed my friend.”
“!…That means… no way?”
Eileen begins to think of something while listening to the testimony of her subordinates.
It was about the racial camouflage magic she was familiar with.
It is a magic that applies illusion magic and disguises itself as a demon or an elf by attaching horns to the head or extending ears.
It took quite a bit of advanced magic to change the shape of the face, but it was surprisingly not that difficult to disguise the race by changing only these minor features.
In particular, for the highly trained witches of the Nation of Darkness, this level of racial camouflage magic was almost essential.
“that… And this. I found it at the site of the attack by demons this time, and I remember that the witches were also wearing similar brooches.”
The priestess cautiously pulls out a brooch with a nervous voice.
After accepting it, Eileen began to feel as if all the puzzles had been put together.
“I see… I also thought it was a bit suspicious. No matter how late I arrived, there’s no way the demons could have escaped my detection net so quickly… ‘
Eileen speaks in a tone of subtle anger.
In the end, the fact that all of this was the result of playing with him from the beginning made her feel sincere anger.
‘That guy… I thought he was simply plotting to take Torare-sama, but that wasn’t the case. Another purpose of that year is chaos… It was intended to cause chaos in our empire with the smoke screen of the demons’ attack.’
The Falcon Empire, whose expedition had already ended in great failure, was even fighting a war with the elven kingdom.
In this situation, if the demons go ahead with a provocation, the empire will have no choice but to be in a difficult situation in many ways.
Even for the Falcon Empire, the strongest country on the continent, it is unreasonable to organize an expeditionary force across the sea again at this point.
Provocation by enemies located in such untouchable places was bound to add to the chaos of the empire, and it was clear that this would be the beginning of further aggravation of the unstable political situation.
“The Nation of Darkness… I never thought you would do such dirty tricks behind your back.”
“I can’t believe you did something like that against a human who wasn’t even a demon… ”
Eileen decides the situation and the soldiers express deep anger at her words.
Then Eileen looked at the soldiers in front of her and spoke in a voice full of deep anger.
“I guess this… Looks like we’ll have to hurry on our way. I have to tell His Majesty as soon as possible that the Nation of Darkness was carrying out such a dirty trick.”
“I agree. We will have to publicize their atrocities throughout the empire and deal with them appropriately.”
“Dirty Nation of Darkness… I never thought I would dare to go to such lengths to deceive our empire.”
Like that, the soldiers begin to turn their anger towards the Nation of Darkness towards the demons that they had until now.
But at this moment,
Unlike the soldiers who are purely possessed by anger.
In Eileen’s heart, not only the simple emotion of anger, but also the emotion of joy began to grow.
‘This… In a way… It might be a good thing. If Shud did such a dirty thing, I might be able to use this as an excuse to get a chance to punish him formally.’
After the other two evaporated, the only remaining rival for her.
Thinking that the opportunity to finally erase her, who has not been able to touch her because there is no proper excuse, has come,
A deep smile began to bloom in Eileen’s heart.
At this moment, leading the demons and heading to the imperial ecliptic, he knew very well what he was doing.
Just a few weeks ago, the demon kingdom and demon tribes he had thought he had to destroy.
But now, Hector was doing his best with all his heart to help them.
“Are you sure this path is right?”
“Of course. Just beyond that hill is the ecliptic.”
The demon corps commander, Samuel, still looks at him without raising his eyes of suspicion.
However, no matter how much credit she had in herself, at this moment Hector was just steadfastly guiding the way.
At the same time, even from Samuel’s point of view, she had no doubts about what to do in case of an emergency, but she still had some loose trust in Hector’s actions.
Looking at his actions so far, he cared for his comrades terribly, and was willing to give up his life for this.
It was a reliable fact that he would not act recklessly as such colleagues were being held hostage in the Demon Kingdom, and if he acted in vain, he was to be executed immediately.
Apart from this cold-hearted calculation of Samuel.
At this moment, there was another reason why Hector was doing his best in this work.
‘I can’t imagine the day will come when I sincerely try to help the demons this far in my life… ‘
If he had seen it several weeks ago, he would surely have gone out of his mind.
Although the lives of his precious comrades were important, before that, Hector had quite a lot of pride as a warrior.
If the authors had issued such an order with the lives of their comrades hostage, they would probably have tried to preserve their honor by committing suicide on the run.
The honor of such a warrior was no longer left to Hector now.
Even now, the memory of that moment that does not leave Hector’s head.
Just before receiving a favor for this mission.
The shocking scene that appeared before the eyes of him and his colleagues who were imprisoned in the Demon Kingdom.
It made Hector clearly realize that the cause of the union of the tribes was just an illusion, and that demons were more trustworthy than humans.
‘A warrior’s words… In that respect, maybe I’m really lucky.’
