41 Episode 40 ~ Truth ~ Looking at the Night

I have a new master.
No, no, I don't think "new" is a good word.
My master is the Demon King.
That hasn't changed.
My Lord is the Second Lord.

I have the Demon King's eyes.
My ears are the Demon King's.
My nose is the Demon King's.
But my emotions belong to the Lord.

As I speak, the Demon Lord is observing you through my eyes.
According to what I've heard, Lord-dono is an otherworldly person who was summoned to this world by a heroic summoning.
The summoning of heroes is a great magic that summons otherworldly people to defeat the Demon King.
I've been told by the Lord that he doesn't have any intention of defeating the demon king at the moment, but when the time comes, I've been told to side with the demon king.
I've been told by none other than the Lord.
Truly, he's a funny man.

Speaking of summoning brave men, I'm surprised that there was still magic left, but the biggest surprise is that twenty-eight people were summoned.
In the past, no more than four brave men were summoned in the past summoning of brave men.
That's what the records say.

I myself have only been born from the Demon King's hand for more than a hundred years now.
I'm still a newcomer to the demon world.
Probably, but I'm probably even younger than the High Elf, Miss Amelia.
... If you say this, a painless iron fist will fly at you.
Due to her upbringing, Miss Amelia's knowledge is biased, and it can be said that the Lord Lord is almost ignorant about this world.
I'm the most knowledgeable of all of them.

That's why I was answering the questions of the Lord Lord Lord and Miss Amelia until I was able to move.
Of course, on the condition that I wouldn't answer any questions that would put the Demon Lord at a disadvantage.

''What makes you able to speak unlike other demons?''
'That's easy. 'Because as a messenger to the Lord, understanding the human language is very important.'
'Then how did you become a dragon by transformation? It nearly killed me.
"So much for dying from that. It's a dream come true to meet the Demon King.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a great deal more to say about it.
The Lord is also laughing a bit.
At first, I thought Miss Amelia was a woman with little expression, but I found that she often moved her face when talking about the Lord.

''The other thing is about the 'magic eye'.
''Ho.... You want to know about the magical eye, another strange thing.
No, my benefactor had it. And he was murdered.

"When I said 'murdered', a very strong killing spirit flowed out of the Lord's Lord.
I'm not going to be able to get it right.
Miss Amelia was also in a cold sweat.
This might be the case, if he didn't teach her how to take it easy and how to control her strength as soon as possible, Lord Lord-dono might not be able to live among people for the rest of his life.

''...Akira, I know you hate me, but it's painful.''
''Hm? ...Oh, sorry.

Thank God for Miss Amelia, who was able to speak up in the midst of the killing pressure in her chest.
When the tightness in my chest is gone, I answer the question.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing. You will find that the benefactor appears to be quite a good user.
''Yeah, because Commander Saran is stronger than a brave man.''

The Lord Lord replied that with pride.
I'm not sure about the ability of the brave man, but if the Lord says so, he must be a very good user.


"Saran Misraeli?
Yeah, that's the name I think it is.
'Akira, I believe Saran Misrai was...'

Miss Amelia was about to say something and shut her mouth.
I close my mouth for the same reason.
We make eye contact and decide to change the subject.

It's something the Lord doesn't have to realize yet.
The cruelty of the world.

'Aquila, don't you ask me about the offensive power?'
'Oh, yeah. Jor, I have a question...
"What is it, my Lord?

Saran Misrai...
It's a very familiar name.
The way the Lord reacted, he must have missed it a lot.
The world is really a cruel and harsh place.

''Isn't that status attack power pretty funny?
"Funny? ''Where.''
''I understand that the status goes up from level 5. But what kind of demon can't beat a demon that has such a huge attack power?

I know about the Lord's offensive power.
He's probably lightly surpassed the previous Demon Lord and others.
But he still doesn't know why he struggles to defeat demons.
From what I hear, when his level was still low, he couldn't get any blades into the Minotaur at all.

''Lord Lord, did you attack the minotaur with your sword?''
Oh, it's more of a dagger than a sword.

They say that teaching common sense to those without common sense is tiring because our common sense doesn't work, and that's exactly what they say.
I'm sure you'll be able to see that it's a question that even Miss Amelia couldn't answer.
I almost sighed without thinking.

I'm sure you'll be able to see that the minotaur has a high level of offensive power, but the sword is almost useless.
''Commander Saran and Deputy Commander Ziel's swords did go through, right?
''If it's a gain that's been granted the Demon Slayer's magic, it will pass a bit. But other than that, it's a different story. It's a good idea to make sure that you're not going to have to worry about it.

The sword the Lord is currently using is, of course, granted with demon slaying magic.
Still, it's strange that I'm training in this labyrinth of swords.
I'm afraid to ask the Lord for help.

I'm sure you'll be able to find out what kind of demon you can easily defeat with magic, even if it can't pass through your sword in this labyrinth.

The Lord Lord thought for a moment and nodded.

''That was the case with the chimera.''
''Lord Lord, this labyrinth is full of demons that are strong against physical attacks. Even if the upper levels can be defeated with swords, it can be said that the lower levels are almost impossible to defeat without the use of magic or magical power.''

The Lord-dono froze a bit, examining my words and was astonished.
I knew he would be surprised.
The place where I had been cultivating myself up until now was not really a place that suited my training.

'Yol, you mean this labyrinth is just right for magical training?'
"Yes," you might say. You could say that.'

I replied as I thought about it, and the Lord Lord nodded his head in a gulp.
It's a good idea to be able to have a good time with them.

...I'm a little annoyed.
But, well, it can't be helped.

I've never heard of a labyrinth with special characteristics.
Well, of course they do. There are demon labyrinths in the world where magic doesn't work. I'm sure you'll be able to find out more about them.
"...Yol, is the information accurate?
''The Demon King said that. That's good enough for me.
''・・・・・・・・・ I see.''

Sighing, Lord Lord Lord looked up at Gabari the next moment.

''Then what about that white bat I defeated?''
Akira, you were using your magic then.
I see...

He sinks again.
The corners of Miss Amelia's mouth are slightly elevated.
I'm sure you'll be able to find out more about it.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing.
You fight like an assassin: ・・・・・・.

The Lord Lord is quite pleasant to be with.
You can move on now, but may I enjoy this time a little longer?
