254 Chapter 248 Visit the store ③

 When the swordsman Doberg said he wanted to change jobs, the spirit god Rosen told him to wait a bit.
 Meanwhile, the door of the store opens with great force.

So who's this guy named Allen?

There he is.

(Hmm? (Was it the wolf beastman he helped earlier?

 Allen recognized the wolf beastman behind the lion beastman who came into the store out of nowhere.
 It's a wolf beastman named Ur who was in the party that was attacked by the beastie on the second level.

 When asked by the lion beastman, Ur points straight at Allen.


 Looking at Allen and saying so, the lion beastman comes straight at you, shaking his muscular taut shoulders.

(Huh? Do you want to do it? (Get it out)

 Allen cuts off the lion's beastman.

"This is Prince Zeu of the Beast Kingdom of Albahar. It's been a long time.

 Helmios seems to know the lion-beast who came over.
 He sits down and says hello.

"Hmm? The hero of the central continent? I heard you're being driven to war, is the war over yet?

(A prince. Call me Master Zeu or something, but is this beastman a prince of the Beast Kingdom?

"The war is won by our alliance. Is His Majesty the Beast King alive and well?

 Helmios smiles at the irreverent Prince Zeus.

"Hmm, I see you're alive and well. Helmios. I haven't changed since I made you lie down on the ground in front of the Emperor of the Ghiamut Empire.

(Hmm? (Down to earth)

Oh, that's good to hear.

 In what seemed like a disturbing conversation, Prince Zeu stepped even closer towards Allen.

"So you're with the heroes of the Central Continent. So you're the one who saved my brothers and sisters?

"If this is about 20 days ago, it's me.

 When asked, Allen decides to answer.

I heard you were attacked instead, but I'm surprised you managed to get away from Beebe.

Well, yes. So what is it?

 Allen doesn't say it was easy or hard to be able to escape from the beast.

I saved the beast. I'm here to thank you for my people. I heard you were going to ask me to thank you for everything. And what do you want?

(Oh?) (You feel like royalty has come to tell you that if you help the adventurer, they will reward you?

 Allen had noticed that the beastmen had seen themselves when they entered the store and left the store.
 Unlike the irreverent and violent appearance of this beast kingdom's royalty, they might be more righteous than you think.

That's true. Hmm~

 Allen thinks seriously.

"Say it.

 When no immediate answer came, the Zeuschwein prince further prompts the content of the thanks.

I can't think of anything right away. Do I owe you a favor?

"What? How dare you do to Prince Zeus.

 Behind him the beastman named Ur begins to tremble at Allen's words.
 Since Allen can't think of anything to thank you for right now, he said he'll come up with something to thank you for.

Do you want to hear why?

"To be honest, I was not expecting to see royalty in my home. This is a thank you from the royalty and I would like to have your help in my time of need. I'm working through a dungeon.

A conquest. Is the Ghiamut Empire finally getting serious about conquering the dungeon?

 At the word "dungeon capture," Prince Zeus looks at Helmios with a stronger gaze than before.

''No, we're not.

 Helmios denies it.

'Is that so? Well, good. Then you'll come to me when you get a better idea. You can ask the werewolf around here if you want to know where I am. And Helmios too.

Yes, sir. Prince Zeus will be at your service. We're with you.


(What do you mean "together"?)

 With that much said, Prince Zeus seems to be leaving the store with his men.

 The beastman inside the store also walked out to say goodbye.

You don't seem to mind talking to royalty of any kind, do you, Allen?

 Cecil says the word "holy knight" and gives you a jerk eye.

"Well, it's just that he's royalty from another country. You have no reason to be loyal to him.

No, you don't look like you're even loyal to your own king.

 Recalling Allen's actions in the audience chamber, which Kiel took to return himself to the nobility.

 While having such a conversation, Krsna and Dogora resume eating with the mollycoddling, now that the Zeu Beast Prince is gone.

 Helmios' companions look at Allen in amazement, thinking that he is as they had heard. You say aloud, and you settle down to eat, wondering what you heard from Helmios.

So, what's down to earth? It sounded like Mr. Hermios was talking about losing to the beastmen.

Yes, it was the year before you and I had a match at school. I had to play a match with the current Beast King in the middle of a meeting of the Five Continents Alliance.

"Huh? Are you talking about a match with the Beast King?

 Allen asks what was bothering him in the conversation between Prince Zeu and Helmios.

"Yes, yes. . and I was outplayed and outgunned. I was embarrassed that time.

 The story of his defeat is told by Helmios with a smile on his face.

 At a council meeting, the emperor of the Ghiamut Empire called Helmios a "world hero" for his constant victories against the Demon King's army.
 To glorify the heroes of one's country is to show off one's national strength.

 The Baukis Empire and the Al-Bahar Beast Kingdom were the ones who waited for this.
 They are the "heroes of the central continent", not the "heroes of the world".
 The Baukis Empire has Admiral Galala.
 And the current Beast King has told me the Beast Kingdom has me.

 If you doubt your strength, the emperor of the Ghiamut Empire says that you should have a match.

"And that's why we're out of options.

Yes, afterwards, the emperor scolded me severely for losing. It was terrible.

 It's terrible to be scolded for a painful, almost one-sided defeat, says Hermios, laughing.

That's funny. If you're royalty, you should have only one star, so why did the brave man lose? Hmm? (Could it be that royalty is only reasonable for humans to have one star?

 As Allen chimed in, he wondered why Helmios had lost.
 It's a strange feeling, as if listening to Helmios' story brought you closer to the reason for the world, and even further away.

"The Beast King had specialized strength in fighting against people.

I guess so. Well, that's not an excuse, but that's what it is. I didn't catch it.

(I see, so the Beast King has the same speed characteristics. But still, he's even faster than a brave man.

"Hey, Allen. What do you mean?

Maybe the Beast King's status is an anti-personnel specialist and his speed is higher than other stats. Compared to that, Helmios has an average status. If you don't hit it, you won't win.

It's common knowledge that brave men are poorly balanced and dexterous. But then again, if the Baukis Empire also stopped it.

"Yeah, yeah, something like that. Allen, you seem to have a lot of connoisseurship skills.

 I expect that Admiral Galala of the Baucis Empire is as powerful as Helmios.
 Although it's only the strength of the golem included, he is probably the strongest in the Baukis Empire.  

 As Allen, who was not present at the time of the match, analyzes the battle of Helmios, everyone's eyes are focused on him.
 At least unlike the Baukis Empire and the Beast Kingdom, everyone here knows what Allen did in the war at Rosenheim a few months ago.

 Some of Helmio's companions stare threateningly at you, even though you seem to be a year younger than Helmio.

I'm also curious about his last words. I heard something about helping Prince Zeus.

"Oh, hmmm,

 A brave man appears to be hesitating whether to speak or not.

"Huh? Well, if you don't want to hear it, I won't force you to.

(The political intricacies of the Ghiamut Empire?

No, yes. I'm indebted to you, Allen. And since there are so many people in Latash, I guess I should tell you. I'm not very good at drawing the line between what's okay to say and what's not.

 Hermios looked at the Swordsman Silvia and said, and Silvia nodded lightly, "I think you should talk to him, Allen.

I think you should talk to Mr. Allen. Maybe he can help you.

(I'm not saying help, but how can you say that?)

 Silvia says that you should talk to them.

It is said that if the Beast King of the Albahar Beast Kingdom falls, the Beast Kingdom will invade the Central Continent.

"What! Mr. Helmios, what are you saying. What about the Five Continents Alliance?

 Allen shouts out what he's saying.

Of course. I'm sure that Prince Bekku, who has taken over the position of Beast King, will make the abrogation. I'm sure he'll take advantage of the time when the demon king's army comes to attack.

Why? Why would that be?

 Cecil looks at the companions of Helmios, who also came from the Ghiamut Empire, wondering if the story of Helmios is true, while choking up, but no one is wondering.

 It seems to be a matter of course.

''I've never heard of such a story in the school, but have they ever attacked you in the past?

''Not since the Demon King's army invaded. But it's been a thousand years since the Beast Kingdom became independent. I'm told that the Beast Kingdom has been attacked many times during that time.

 The beastmen were severely discriminated against and treated by the Ghiamut Empire.
 They were persecuted, and the bitterness of that time is still alive after a thousand years.

 The story goes that the beast king will gather a large army and attack the central continent to take revenge.

"So that's what you said about being from Latash Kingdom.


 Cecil didn't understand.

''That's the way it is. If they attack, I think the lower third of the central continent will be invaded. It would be a two-pronged battle with the Demon King's army.

(Oh, okay. Oh, I see. So that's it. So this is why such a weak nation has existed right next to the Empire.

 Allen's one question he had for years is solved.

What. Allen, what do you know?

Perhaps the Kingdom of Latash has existed for the last thousand years as a defensive wall to protect the people of the Empire when it was attacked by the Beast Kingdom.

 The kingdom of Latash is one of the nations that exist in the south of the central continent.
 About two-thirds of the northern two-thirds of the Central Continent is the Ghiamut Empire.

 The Ghiamut Empire has allowed the small kingdom of Latash to exist as a defensive wall to defend itself.
 While Latash Kingdom is under attack, it can buy time to mobilize its army.

''So, Helmios. That will be averted if Prince Zeu becomes the next Beast King.

That's true. I think the Ghiamut Empire would prefer Prince Zeu to be the Beast Prince. And then there's also the idea of a warrior princess, but only if the current Crown Prince Beku doesn't become the Beast King.

(I'd even come to thank you for helping my fellow man.)

 It seems that the Ghiamut Empire is pushing Prince Zeus and considers Prince Beku to be in danger.

"Warrior Princess?

I've heard that the Beast King's youngest son is a Beast Princess with a great personality and fighting skills. I've never met her. Now that you mention it, I haven't heard that lately.

 Even if you are a brave man, you are not allowed to enter the beast kingdom.
 And it is unknown if the beast princess, known as the Warrior Princess, is even alive today.

(This world isn't made up of peaceful buddies. So was the case with the elves and dark elves.

 He remembers about the demon god Razel, who was a dark elf.
 Allen found this world to be quite chaotic with the Demon King.
