"This is my bedroom. ......
Princess Sylvia showed me to a room on the second floor of the castle.
It was in the southeast corner.
It is said to be a two-room room with the office in the front and the bedroom in the back.
...... Come in, please.
"...... Excuse me.
It may have been too early to deactivate the 'High King Mode'.
It's a bit embarrassing to enter a girl's bedroom in civilian mode.
I don't mind if it's Lisette or Haruka. They're family.
You said that the bedroom floor was glowing.
As you can see: ......
Princess Sylvia shyly beckoned me into her bedroom.
She's right. There's a faint glow in the floor.
There is a carpet in the middle of the bedroom and a canopied bed by the window.
The light penetrates the carpet and the bed, and shines down to the ceiling.
The light penetrates the carpet and the bed, illuminating the ceiling. ...... It must be very difficult to sleep. This condition.
I'm sure. This is the light from the magic circle I'm looking for.
"...... is the light of the magic circle?
Yes. I have the power to control the magic of the earth...
I explained briefly.
I've got the Dragon Emperor skill from opening the Dragon Emperor Temple.
The "Dragon Emperor Skill" includes the power to handle the magic of the earth and the power to strengthen people and things.
That when you reactivate the magic circle, you can use the magic power of the earth to create a ward against demons.
I'm not sure if this is the same ...... that made the demons that attacked us disappear when we first met?
It's the power of warding. The wards can be turned on and off by me and my friends at will.
...... So that's what you're saying.
So what do we do now?
Princess Sylvia in her dress tilted her head curiously.
What do you mean, what do you want me to do?
If I reactivate this magic circle, most of Kittle's territory will be surrounded by wards. There will be no more demons, and everyone will be able to live safely.
"Yes, yes. I would very much like to...
But that's only if I want it.
Princess Sylvia stiffened at my words.
She's holding the chest of her dress and trembling as she chews on my words.
The wards can be activated and deactivated at will by me and my friends. If the wards were to be reactivated and the demons were to disappear from the Kittle territory, what would happen?
"Everyone will be able to go out freely, expand their fields, and hunt. Logistics would improve and trade would be revitalized.
What if I cut the wards?
Princess Sylvia's eyes widen in surprise.
I think she knows what I'm talking about.
If the wards disappear, people will be attacked by ...... demons again, and the fields that they have worked so hard to clear will be preyed upon by the demons.
That's right. You'll lose the peace you once had.
If they knew from the start that demons were wandering around, they would be wary.
But once the demons are gone, people's vigilance will be relaxed.
If I lift the wards, ...... people who go out thinking they are safe may be attacked by demons in an unguarded state.
If I disobey your will, I will lose the peace and security I once had. ...... Is that what you mean?
As for me, I'm fine with peace and prosperity on the frontier. I have no intention of invading, and I am not troubled at all by the fact that the Kittle territory is peaceful.
I make eye contact with Princess Sylvia and tell her.
But I'm the 'King of the Frontier' and I have to protect the frontier as my top priority. If the people of Kittle's Domain become the enemy of the frontier, I will remove the wards within Kittle's Domain. Will Princess Sylvia be able to endure such a situation?
Who will know about this at ......?
"The frontiersmen know about the wards. My family and I are the only ones who know about the wards in the Kitor Territory.
"What will you do if I refuse to give you the wizards?
I'll just leave.
You're not going to force me to go to ......?
I don't want my neighbors to hate me.
What if I tell someone about this?
I can't help it. That's all I can say.
I shrugged my shoulders.
To be honest, it would be quicker to trick the princess into reactivating the wards on her own, but ...... I don't want to do that. In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the site, you can contact us at ....... It's a matter of mood, to be honest.
"...... is a matter of mood.
It's a matter of mood.
I can't help it.
I've got the power of my childhood in this world.
You'll be able to get a lot more than just a pair of shoes.
In the end, there was no "evil in the world".
But I can't be the evil in the world that creates tragedy.
If I become such a thing, I can't make excuses to my grandpa Tatsu-goro, the "Dragonic Awakening Wolf" who's been keeping me company through my junior high school years.
You can find a lot of people who are looking for the best way to get the most out of their life.
I'm not sure what to do.
I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. I finally understand what kind of person you are. ....... I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
I'm not sure if I'm laughing too much or if I have tears in my eyes, but Princess Sylvia nodded.
"Why don't you reestablish an alliance with me? "The King of the Frontier.
"If you're the Dragon Emperor's heir, you'll need a stronger oath. If you are the Dragon Emperor's successor, you will need to make a stronger vow that I will accept the Warding and remain your ally.
With that, Princess Sylvia knelt before me.
"I, Sylvia Kittle, make a pact with the King of the Frontier, Shoma Kiryu. During my lifetime, I will not allow anyone from the Kittle Realm to antagonize the frontier in any way. I will do everything in my power to stop them, even if it is my father or sister. And...
Taking my hand, Princess Sylvia declared.
"If this alliance is broken, I will pay for it with my life.
That's what a pact is supposed to be.
I thought I was used to the rules of this world, but ...... is heavy.
Can you accept this?
"...... Oh. Yes.
The King of the Frontier, Shoma, accepts the vows of Princess Sylvia Kittle and fully trusts that you are on my side.
"Thank you, sir. "Thank you, King of the Frontier, no, Lord Kiryu.
Princess Sylvia smiled.
"So what shall we do now?
For now, we'll have to reactivate the magic circle and decide who will be the Lord of the Castle.
It'll be hard to get Lisette and Haruka to come.
Princess Sylvia swore with her life to be on my side.
Then I'll ask her.
"Princess Sylvia, will you be the lord of Seelal Castle?
"...... Lord of the castle?
That's not quite what I meant. The lord of the castle is the one who controls the magic circle and has the right to activate and deactivate the wards. As long as I appoint you as lord, you'll continue to have that ability. If I remove you as lord, you lose the ability.
Oh, thank you. Please make me the lord of the castle.
Princess Sylvia nodded again and again.
But ...... I'm glad you trust me so much, but ...... what about the price?
I'm not sure if you're going to be able to afford it, but I'm sure you'll be able to afford it. I'll take it as a countermeasure when the crops in Kittle's territory increase and the frontier products stop selling.
"...... I understand.
Princess Sylvia took my hand and declared.
"This Sylvia Kittle promises to be under the command of the King of the Frontier.
Nice to meet you.
"...... A secret promise. That's kind of creepy.
Let's reboot the wizard. We'll fix the magic circle first. ......
Carpet and bed are in the way.
Let's get them out.
In the name of the deformed High King, ...... the demon species awakens!
I transformed into a power type of "Demon Awakening".
I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
I'm not sure what to do. No, no, no. Kiryu-sama!
I looked down at my feet.
Where the bed used to be, there was a crate.
"............, the cool sword?
"Wow, wow, wow, wow. ............
The blade is wavy. ...... Is this a flamberge? But you can't pull it out if it's rippling so loudly. ......
No, no, no, no, no. ......
What's that next to the ...... wing? Made out of wood and bird feathers? It's got a harness so you can carry it on your back. What? Who's going to wear this, ......?
Don't talk about it. Don't explain!
Uh... Is this armor? But there's too little surface area. ....... Is this a plate? No, it's a canvas, but it's turned upside down. ...... But first, move the bed over here and put it down. I don't know. What is this exciting wooden box...
"No, please don't, Mr. Kiryu!
Princess Sylvia hugged me around the waist.
I'm sure you're not the only one.
The princess is shaking with tears in her eyes.
I looked again at the box under the bed.
The hiding place is under the bed.
It's a cool sword with no practical use.
A pure white wing that can be carried on your back (and it's neatly arranged).
A canvas that looks like it might have some kind of spell on it.
I don't think this is .......
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to use it.
"What is ......, 'Cosplay'?
"What? You wear this, look cool, and pose in front of a mirror...
No, I'm not posing! I swear!
I'm not posing!
...... Actually, I had a subhuman friend once, .......
...... Actually, I had a subhuman friend once, ...... who told me something like that when we first met.
"At the meeting, yes.
Sylvia and I nodded.
When we met in a remote meadow, Princess Sylvia told me about her childhood memories.
...... My subhuman friend was a lost harpy. I was sad that he was gone so soon. ...... I wondered if I could have stayed with him if I had wings. ......
So you made wings for your cosplay ......?
And ...... that sword is something I got after I met you.
Because you use unorthodox powers. I've been thinking that if I had such an outlandish weapon, I could get a little closer to you .......
So saying, Princess Sylvia covered her face with her hands.
If you think about it, Princess Sylvia, as the princess of the Kittle family, has been doing the work of the lord family for a long time.
I guess it's understandable that she wants wings to fly freely and a cool sword.
But ...... under the bed, what a goofy .......
I'm not going to tell anyone about ...... this.
"...... Are you sure?
Thank you very much. In return, I pledge allegiance to ...... Lord Kiryu.
You don't have to swear, I won't tell anyone!
I know. I know, but ......".
"I know, but " Princess Sylvia smiled, somewhat embarrassed.
I know, but ......." Princess Sylvia smiled somewhat shyly and said, "You're my dream, because .......
I'm not sure what to say.
Then I rewrote the magic circle on the floor.
Then I tried to see if I could make Princess Sylvia the lord of the castle.
"Sylvia Kittle, you are now the Lord of Haken Castle. Wake up! "Wake up, Dragon Vein!
Princess Sylvia's body jumped with a jolt.
At the same time, the magic circle on the floor grew brighter and the wards were reactivated.
The King's territory, Haken Castle.
Lord of the castle: Sylvia Kittle
Relationship: Subordinate (Race: Human)
Warding effect: Demon repellent (even higher level demons are unable to act on the overlapping parts of the warding)
Additional effect: 15% increase in defense.
Additional effect: defense increased by 15%, chain of command: 8
Now, all the castles are completely connected.
I'm not sure what to do, but I'm not sure what to do.
The chain has exceeded a certain number, so you can decide on a priority reinforcement area.
Suddenly, a strange message appeared.
"...... priority reinforcement area?
It seems that the increase in the number of chains has increased the overall amount of magic power.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.
Decided: Priority reinforcement area 'Kioujou'.
If I had to choose, I'd go there. It's the main base.
The message disappeared.
I guess I'll have to go to ...... to see the effect.
"What is it, Princess Sylvia?
The name of the castle is 'Hakenjo' .......
Princess Sylvia said with a drawn face.
I pointed to the flamberge in the crate.
"Why are you angry?
"Because I'm embarrassed!
"No, I just thought it was ...... cool when I saw it. I thought it would be cool to name it Castle of Waveblade. ......
Pop, pop, pop, pop.
No, it doesn't hurt, but...
Princess Sylvia's turning red and patting me on the back.
I think it's good. "Hakenjo". It's a secret name for other people anyway.
The sword in the wooden box isn't very practical (too zigzagged to pull out), but it's cool.
............ I wish I had known earlier that you were the 'Heir to the Dragon Emperor'.
"I wish I had known sooner that you were the 'Heir to the Dragon Emperor'," said Princess Sylvia in a whisper.
If I had, I would have been able to tell you all about ...... sooner.
"Is that so?
Are you?" "Yes.
Princess Sylvia turned her head to the side as if to sulk.
I put the bed back for now.
If possible, could you leave the carpet off?
I suddenly realized and said.
"No problem, but ...... why?
"Because I might be coming through the magic circle.
Wouldn't you be surprised if I came out of the carpet?
I think you'd be surprised if I came out of the carpet! It's a bedroom!
That's what I'm talking about. I'll get back to you on the details.
I got on top of the magic circle and activated the magic circle transfer.
I'm curious about the "Priority Reinforcement Area" that was displayed earlier. First, let's go back to Hazama Village.
I'll come back with my military strategist to discuss the future. See you then.
Yes, sir! Well...
Princess Sylvia dropped to her knees on the floor again.
She held the breasts of her dress with a serious face.
"This Sylvia Kittle is already under the command of the 'King of the Frontier'. Please use this life for you and my people. Also, please visit ────.
Princess Sylvia's words were cut off.
For a moment, the scenery of the Kittle family castle disappeared...
I was transported directly to Hazama Village.
I'm sure you've seen ──── that canvas, but you haven't seen ...... it, have you?
With a sigh, Princess Sylvia stood up.
Perhaps her last words did not reach the King of the Frontier.
Princess Sylvia puts her hand under the bed and pulls out a secret wooden box.
I've been making these wings over and over since I was a little girl - pure white wings that I can carry on my back.
She secretly asked the blacksmith to make her a sword that she couldn't pull out, the Cool Flamberge.
I'm glad I wasn't discovered by .......
Princess Sylvia took out the canvas from the wooden box and turned it over.
On the canvas was the image of the King of the Frontier, flying through the air.
Not long ago, General Hulka had told me.
"The King of the Frontier flew on his great wings and conquered the Tower of Lingering Demons in the blink of an eye.
This is a picture I made based on his testimony.
"............ my lord
Everything has changed since I met him.
My sister, Renesmee, who had been my adversary, and I became as close as we were when we were children.
He protected my territory from the Ten Wise Men.
It's the same this time.
If the King of the Frontier was going to take the Kitor Territory, he should have let the territory go wild.
If he had saved the territory when it was in a state of disarray and it was clear that the Kittle family had no power to protect the people, he would have been able to seize the people's hearts at once.
But he didn't do that.
This is because he is the heir to the Dragon Emperor?
Or is it because he's from another world?
I don't know. But there is no doubt that he is worthy of your service. ......
The territory will be inherited by his sister Milena or Renesmee.
I don't want ...... territory or status.
"Will I ever be able to go to the frontier ......?
Then I'll find my harpy friend, the one I left when I was little.
It would be nice if we could laugh about how we ended up serving the same king. .......
With this thought in mind, Sylvia laid herself down on the bed that the King of the Frontier had touched.
