The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 1
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 1
1. Unwanted Regression!
The moment Kariel, who had been sucked into a black hole and lost consciousness, opened her eyes, what she saw was a landscape she had seen a long time ago.
“Here… … .”
Remembering that this was the room she used as a child, Kariel frowned.
Then he looked at his hand.
As if he hadn’t returned to his childhood, he could see his hands that had grown to some extent.
“Did you come back after all?”
Kariel gritted her teeth as she muttered that.
Kariel, who was deceived by God and returned, looked at the sky reflected outside the window with an angry expression.
If there was a god in front of me, I felt like I wanted to blow up bamboo sticks until I collapsed from exhaustion.

Just then, a strange sound came to my ears.
A translucent window appeared in front of Kariel as white light powder exploded with the sound of a trumpet that spread in her ears.
[hi? Did you do well in regression?
Hehe! To reward you as promised.
As for why it doesn’t appear in person… … Are you going to hit me again if you show up in front of me?
It hurts to share! Dehehe!]
Kariel gritted her teeth at the sentence that made her teeth gnash, looking at the translucent window.
Then the existing text disappeared and a new text was created.
[If I do more, I might die from the vase, so I’ll stop.
Are you curious about the promised reward?
As soon as this message disappears, you will be rewarded.
This time, I hope you live a happy life.
Then this cadet fighting♥]
After the cursed message was over, I finally remembered the reward I was supposed to receive on the translucent window.
[God’s blessing grants you a unique ability. Your unique ability is ‘Fire Contractor’.
※The overwhelming talent related to fire is expressed as a characteristic related to the contract. You have the potential to make pacts with anything related to fire.]
“… … contractor?”
The moment Kariel expressed his doubts, Kariel’s body shone brightly, and the light penetrated into her body.
At that moment, a translucent window appeared to pay the remaining rewards.
[Your incurable disease is due to excessive blood-based abilities (all fire-based abilities are available). Due to the excessive blessing of fire, the enormous fire accumulated inside your body is consuming your life.]
[Find a possible recovery method at this point.]
[Exploring ways to recover… … .]
A translucent window that had been paused for a while with the text that it was being explored caused a change.
[Find a way to utilize the Trait Contractor and Bloodline abilities.
1. Contracts with fragments of mythical beings in exchange for the firearms accumulated inside the body.
Recommendations: Fragment of the Demon God of Destruction, Fragment of the Demon Beast that Swallowed the Sun, Fragment of the Hell Gatekeeper, Fragment of the Fire Spirit King.
※(Important) You can become a Grand Master by contracting with all of the beings in the recommendation section.
2. Strengthen the body with special training methods.
Recommended: Werewolf’s rigid body technique.]
Kariel muttered as she stared at the translucent window on which the method for recovering her body was written.
“how… … What is a fragment?”
[It is part of a noble existence in the age of mythology. It is sleeping in relics or ancient ruins.]
As if answering Kariel’s question, the letters are engraved in the air.
In front of Kariel’s eyes as she looked at it and organized her thoughts, a translucent window created new letters.
[All God’s rewards have been paid.]
[After 10 seconds, this window disappears. 10… … 9… … 8… … 1 Bye!]
‘Pop!’ A translucent window that disappears with the sound.
In the novels I read on Earth, there was a system window and gave me skills like munchkin, but this guy just gave me a few methods and disappeared.
Cariel stared blankly at the place where there was a translucent window for a while because it was ridiculous. He hurriedly got up from his seat.
My whole body was throbbing and painful, but I clenched my teeth and endured it and sat down at the desk.
Then, he hurriedly wrote down the recovery methods one by one.
Then I suddenly remembered the word YOLO life that God had spoken of.
“Yolo Life… … .”
Kariel muttered quietly, deep in thought.
‘Is that really possible?’ I wondered, then something flashed through my head.
“If you trade for the throne… … .”
It was just an idea that came to my mind, and soon plausible plans arose.
His position as an emperor in his YOLO life is a stumbling block.
If it was a peaceful time, you might be able to think of becoming an emperor even after becoming a female army.
However, considering the future, the emperor’s position was only a burden that hindered his happiness.
Cariel, who was frantically writing down plans like a composer who came up with an idea, got up rubbing his stiff eyes.
“Are you going to leave it like this for now?”
Cariel muttered like that, put the things he had written so far in the drawer, and got up from his seat.
As soon as he got up from his seat, his body staggered and fell to the floor.
‘Kwadang!’ When there was a sound and Kariel collapsed, a servant rushed in from outside.
A man who sees Kariel who has collapsed and rushes to support him.
“get on… … lee… … On.”
“You’re not even strong, so don’t overdo it!”
A trusted servant of the Crown Prince’s womb who died trying to save himself to the last in his previous life.
The sight of him looking at him worriedly while alive evoked a strange feeling.
Tarion made a fuss, brought potions, fed them, and stood firmly next to them, telling them not to move at all.
Seeing Tarion like that, Kariel smiled bitterly.
‘I didn’t know that Tarion would die like that.’
He, who is one of the strongest in the Empire except for the Master, died due to his own carelessness.
To the writers who believed that it was also on the same side.
‘I can’t let this life die like that.’
Having made that decision, Kariel let out Tarion’s worrying nagging in one ear and organized her thoughts for a moment.
“… … Yes? Did you call?”
Tarion, who had been talking hard in a worried tone, regained his senses and looked at Kariel.
“I have a favor to ask you.”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion’s eyes widened.
His eyes blushed, as if he was thrilled that he, who had always seemed unmotivated due to poor health, even asked him to do so.
“Your Highness, just say something. Even if it means sacrificing one’s life… … .”
“You don’t have to risk your life. It’s simple. Get the paper first.”
Kariel dissuaded Tarion, who was talking about going to war, and wrote down the things he wanted to ask for on the paper he brought.
“uh? Didn’t you say it was simple?”
Tariel began to panic as the paper was filled with letters.
Letters written in more detail than expected.
Of course, most of them were meaningless letters.
Some were written as if they were struggling, and some were written to ask for some fruit.
At first, Tarion’s eyes, which were flustered, widened.
“This, this… … .”
Kariel put a finger to her lips and shook her head, and Tarion nodded hurriedly.
It was written densely, but there were some rules in the sentences that were so disorganized that it looked like a child’s diary.
And those rules were also things Tarion knew very well.
‘Because Tarion told me in my previous life.’
Clearly, Tarion had informed them during this time as well.
However, at that time, I learned very slowly to find a way to recover my body.
Tarion spoke with a thumbs up and read slowly.
A lot of miscellaneous things were mixed, but I caught the important points at once.
The most important were three things.
1. A list of the emperor faction who jokes around with their names.
2. To weed out among them those who are associated with criminal groups.
3. Finally, bring a list of spies in your palace.
Tarion, who had read everything, looked at Kariel with concern.
“This… … Too… … Dangerous.”
Seeing Tariel’s worried expression, Kariel smiled and said,
“I have no idea what to do right now. But shouldn’t you have some understanding?”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion sighed and nodded slightly.
Three factions in an empire long established.
For the imperial faction, which is the weakest among them, the imperial family has condoned that their faction borrowed their name and conducted business.
It is true that even borrowing the name of the royal family to cover up the crime has been tolerated to some extent.
Kariel in his previous life also lent his name to continue to lead the imperial faction in order to become the emperor, and there were countless times when he closed his eyes.
‘There is nothing like that in this life.’
Cariel thought so and grinded his teeth.
Of course I can’t move right now.
His physical condition was also garbage, and there was no information or base, so there was nothing he could do.
However, even at this time, there was a small force that Tharion had personally nurtured.
‘It’s a small group, but it’s a well-established group, so you can figure out what’s revealed on the outside.’
As he thought, Tarion gave a small nod and said.
“It is possible. However… … .”
“I don’t really want to do anything, just find out.”
“… … All right.”
When Tarion reluctantly answered, Kariel smiled and opened her mouth.
“Call one servant.”
“Well, even if you’re going to order… … .”
“ah! I’m thinking of running some errands at the imperial library because I have something to look into.”
Watching him pounding his chest as if asking him to leave it to him, Kariel shook her head.
“Tarion needs to find out.”
“If it’s a small amount, I can do it.”
As Tharion spoke confidently, Kariel smiled and made him bring a piece of paper, and then he wrote down the books he could remember.
He wrote everything from history books about the mythical era to martial arts and encyclopedias about monsters.
Of course, in order to confuse the spies, I also mixed and wrote miscellaneous things.
“uh… … .”
“Of course I’m bringing this right now, and of course I’m going to make sure I bring some herbal medicine and documents about this disease as well, in order to find a way to recover my body.”
“Well… … .”
Tarion smiled awkwardly at Kariel’s question and nodded slightly.
Tarion, who responded as if a soldier was saluting, bowed gracefully with a bewildered expression and left the room.
After a while, when a servant came in on behalf of Tharion, Kariel handed over the papers with the books to be brought from the library and fell into thoughts again.
The biggest reason I lost Tarion.
It was because of the betrayal of those they thought were on the same side.
‘The Emperor… … .’
Thinking about the Imperial sect, Kariel sharpened his teeth.
If you look at them now, they are useless.
In a peaceful era, I would have thought of dragging them away like garbage, but the future was hell.
Besides, he had no intention of becoming an emperor, so he had no reason to lead the imperial faction.
‘I make the Imperial Sect as a sacrifice for my YOLO life.’
Having hardened his thoughts like that, Kariel smiled brightly.
Like in my previous life, I had no intention of being careless or being fooled.
His beliefs were developed while he became an emperor and went through hardships.
It was just ‘If you get hit twice, you’re a god.’
How can I avoid that in this life?
‘Get only what you get and jump out of the imperial palace.’
