Volume 2, Chapter 11: Children of the Night, Part 1


“……What can we do for you?”

It was late at night, and cold. I called the four children to the garden near the back gate.

I’m alone without anyone nearby. A feeling of contempt is coming from the four. These guys…

“I am going to a [Tea Party]. You guys will be coming with me.”

When I say so, they all showed similar reactions.

Noah is quizzically staring at me. Ninette looks like she finds it bothersome, stifling a yawn. Fontaine is happily crushing ants beneath her feet on the stone. Christina’s expressionless eyes opened a little at my mention of a [Tea Party]


I give a thin smile to Christina, the apprentice maid.

“Yeah, Christina. After this, we’ll be headed to the [Moonlit Tea Party]”

“ … Ho-, … How absurd, you don’t have an invitation. Besides, if you tell someone else…”

“Millaine-sama compromised with me and said that bringing four people as attendants would be alright.”

As I said so, and showed the letter of invitation, Christy snatched it away to read, and then turned to me with an even bigger look of disbelief on her face.


“We… are currently busy.”

Noah, the butler apprentice seems intrigued, but is being obstinate, while Ninette nodded along to her twin brother despite not understanding at all.

How could you be busy?

“Ninette. If you’ll be my guard, I’ll give you this sword.”


I passed Ninette the sword she sold away, and her eyes sparkled as she stared at it in wonder.

“Oy, Ninette.”

“Yes. Noah, this here is for you.”

“ … …”

When I handed over a gold pocket watch, Noah made a face like he had just bitten into a particularly bitter bug.

Well, that makes sense. Ninette didn’t realize, but all of this was evidence of their [Embezzlement]. Therefore, he is being cautious of me, who easily returned it to him. So I, the [Sucker Child], was being calculatedly seen as a ticket to an effortless future.

Although an honest apology would do…


“Would you like something as well, Fontaine?”

“Hmm? No need. Will there be candy?”

“Tea and delicious sweets as well, if the rumors are true. Please eat plenty.”

“Got it, I’ll go.”

Hmm, at least Fontaine understands.


“Thank you for coming.”

Vio had guided the back gate guards away as two Oberu family carriages came in. How clever of them, not using a large carriage, the [Origin] is much harder to find when tight corners can be cut.

“All of you. Get into the carriage.”

I must say, the butler’s hand which is helping me up smelled quite like a [Beast] as I got into one of the carriages.

Those children. I wonder what their faces look like now.

Nervousness? Delight? It doesn’t really matter. They boarded the back carriage, to keep face for Father.

Enjoy tonight’s trip.

Could this be you all’s final chance…?


The carriages we boarded were shaking. It was completely isolated from the outside, but I felt like we were moving several times the speed of a normal carriage.

I wonder if this can be commercialized… It’s probably impossible. The thing that is taking us to our destination without so much as turning is certainly not of [Human] make.

The carriage arrived without incident.


“Welcome, we thank everyone for coming.”

Doll-like beautiful butlers and maids were lined up on either side of the center aisle, on which a beautiful lady wearing a deep purple dress having the smell of a [Beast] greeted me.

“I am Millaine, Count Oberu’s eldest daughter.”

She had an enchanting smile that gently melted the hearts of people that saw it.

The four people behind me were also staring into those jewel-like purple eyes, that they’d forget themselves for a while can’t be helped.


Now then… were you bewitched the moment you met her?



How strange… Millaine thought as she saw today’s guests.

Yurushia, who was called the golden princess, was even more beautiful than the rumors stated despite her age. The moment her figure appeared from the carriage, even the butlers and maids who were used to Millaine were shaken.

Even Millaine forgot to scold the servants, so breathtaking was her beauty.

Millaine was frustrated as soon as she became aware that she was [Charmed] by the entrance. Yurushia had not moved, and Millaine had recovered before her attendants.

{… As expected of one called a [Saint]. I may need to use stronger magic than usual…} (TL: These are thoughts, btw)

Millaine’s expression fell.

Impossible. In both looks and charm, the [Human Being] Yurushia was not inferior to Millaine.

“I am Yurushia, third daughter of Duke Verusenia.”


Holding the hem of her dress, a dark blue dress with white frills that seemed to be made for [Dolls], slightly bending her waist, her graceful bow was the very definition of [Princess], the count and countess who had just arrived were also charmed by the greeting.

The voice that echoed in the silence frustrated Millaine and her comrades.


“Millaine-sama, what about the other participants…?”

“No, it was such an effort to bring you here, Yurushia-sama, that no others could be invited today.”


With the finest feast in front of them, those useless snacks would only be obstacles. In that sense, the servants that she brought would not even serve as an appetizer, until now, they had never eaten children who hadn’t tasted bad, so they had usually sent them back, but perhaps as thanks for their service, these children could be granted to the butlers and maids.

Yurushia, who holds the highest protection out of the royal family, even though she could have brought out her knight escort, she only brought such thinly flavored children with her.

Although she was likely smarter than her age showed, ultimately, she was still a child.

As proof, the four children that called Yurushia master were off receiving the hospitality of the beautiful servants, smiling as though they were about to melt away.

Millaine felt her heart leave its cage at this.

Of course. There was no human being that could meet [Their] eyes and bodies that could still go on normally. The three of them were among the [Noble Grade], and their status was far higher than anyone else here.


Suddenly, they felt sweat begin to appear on their back… Looking around, they saw Yurushia quietly staring at Millaine with a [Doll-like] smile.


“Is something the matter?”

“Nothing. I’m glad I don’t need to worry about the children. But you know… Millaine-sama, why were you so concerned about having me come here…?”

“ … That is… our apologies.”

The graceful smile of Yurushia surprised Millaine so much that she had already instinctively apologized.

Until now they had scoffed at the attitude of the [Pretend Nobles], and had never bowed their head to anyone else.

Why was it…? To the entertainers and guests, the [Words] of Yurushia placed herself [Lower] than Millaine.

Unforgivable. Her… Me.

{ … Such an Inferior Human…}


Though, something was strange.

What was this sense of discomfort? What was this strange feeling?

Like leaving something unbuttoned, only to notice at the end of the day…

Or like wearing only one shoe, but not noticing…

Where was that feeling coming from?

Was it coming from her? After sending the letter of invitation to her? Or maybe… because she came from this country?

That’s absurd… Impossible.

Before Millaine came to this country, she already had a plan.

This Holy Kingdom was a place where [Saints] and [Heroes] were born; the [Holy] power even reached into the dirt. Because of this, the public had strong faith, and it was said to be difficult for [Beasts] or [Dark Creatures] to live here.

That was why she came.

In the center of the Holy Kingdom, nobody would think that the [Nobles] would actually be infiltrated by a terrible [Monster].

Carefully… slowly, from behind the Holy Kingdom’s back, she would slake her thirst for blood.


“ … … ”

When Millaine came out of her thoughts of the past, Yurushia was sitting across from her at the table, her back resting in the chair, filing her nails with something like a stone with an uninterested look.

The red tea in front of her had already gone cold.

“You guys, replace Yurushia-sama’s tea.”

Millaine hurriedly ordered the servants, but a thought suddenly crossed her mind.

Why would the servant make the mistake of leaving someone’s tea long enough for it to cool? She immediately realized why.

Those good looking butlers and maids who had captivated hundreds of daughters were captivated by the cold beauty of the young Yurushia. They had stopped working, freezing to stare at her.

{How awkward…}

So many people were unable to fight against her [Charm], looking with bloodshot eyes, their drool falling, their appearance as [Human Beings] had become impossible to maintain.

If those lesser servants went crazy, they may not be satisfied with only those four other children.

The atmosphere that had begun, the Count and his wife began to move, but the atmosphere was stopped.


“Changing the tea is unnecessary.”


The [Princess]’s voice was dignified and cool.

Yurushia let out a deep sigh, and while looking away from Millaine murmured while still polishing her nails.

“Ever since I boarded the carriage, I’ve been neglected and left alone. If I am still being neglected now, why did I even come in the first place?”

“ … G-greatest apologies.”

Millaine lowered her head to Yurushia while grinding her teeth and fangs.


She was rapidly reaching her limit. It would have been best if the [Top-grade] prey called Yurushia had been completely [Charmed] and she thought that whether it was done in small stages or all at once would have been enjoyable either way, but, with the atmosphere she had caused with her tricks, a person like the transcendent Millaine could no longer allow herself to lower her head.

{Good enough… now, it’s time to eat}

With her head still down, her fangs grew out of her lips, Millaine saw, out of the corner of her beautiful, Oni-like eyes, that something small rolled by.

“I’m returning you this claw sharpener. It’s too small.”


A large piece of ruby, about the size of an adult’s fingertips.

It was one of the gems concealed in the small box sent to Yurushia, a jewel of enough value that it could buy an aristocrat’s mansion, but it was so casually tossed onto the ground.

This caused Millaine such anger that she even felt dizziness, but Yurushia with her clear voice multiplied it further.


“Hey… did you know that a few years ago, a neighboring country, Taterudo, had some turmoil involving vampires?”


Those words, not only Millaine, even the faces of the Count and his wife hardened.

“ … Yurushia-sama, what are you talking about?”

At the impersonal cold voice of Millaine, the four children who were in a dreamy state shook as if waking from a dream.

The butlers and maids stared at her without expression, only Yurushia, at the center of all of the glares, continued to speak without breaking a smile.

“It’s just a monologue. There was supposedly a strong vampire, but I heard that it was quickly subdued. To be defeated by mere humans, vampires are no big deal, after all.”


During the monologue, the facial expressions of the Count and wife distorted… they quietly trembled as their thirst for blood rose.

The thirst for blood coming from Millaine was especially impressive.

The anger turned into hatred, the overflowing malice caused the surrounding luscious lawn to decay in an instant.

“What… are you trying to say?”

Yurushia’s complexion did not change with the killing intent, throwing a letter from her pocket onto the lawn, the [Invitation].


“The fragrance of a rose, it can’t disguise the stench of a [Beast].”


At that time, the beautiful maids’ and butlers’ faces distorted into those of beasts, letting out sound as their intimidating fangs were born at Yurushia.


The four children, finally knowing the reality around them, hugged each other, trembling while shedding tears.

They were only able to keep their sanity at this feast of nightmares because their [Master] Yurushia was not scared… but that was it.

Wearing a calm smile, their master was a saint, they hoped she would earn enough time for them to escape on their own.


“You noticed from the start…? The title of [Saint], I’m glad that it wasn’t a sham bought with noble gold…”

“Hmm? That title was something that was given without my permission. That title is so embarrassing. I just wanted a peaceful life…”

Yurushia ignored the facial expressions of the children let out a sigh.


“Then, little miss. This will be nice and [Easy] if you just give me your blood…”

The old vampire calmly offered a compromise… Count Oberu’s smile reached his ears as he laughed.

“Saint-sama seems to have a lot of leeway. The three of us have the advantage in experience, hundreds of vampires, and the three thousand [Runts] that make escape impossible…”

The Countess gracefully licked her bright red lips with a long, lizard-like tongue.


That Yurushia, even if they had the rumored power of a legendary class of [Saint], would be hard-pressed to survive taking on this number.

Millaine knew the ability of her two [Companions] well.

The wife and Millaine are two hundred years old. The Count is an ancient vampire that has been alive for five hundred years. Mere human beings could not hope to defeat such things alone.

Millaine knew that it would be possible for the other two to run away if just one of them remained to fight.

Hence Millaine had a feeling of anger in her heart towards the Count and his wife, who had escaped the country at the very start.


“Well then, catch me if you can.”


Yurushia’s words sounded like that of a child having fun as she clapped her hands down, the wife, who noticed that she answered as if she would [Escape], was at a loss for words.

With such a strange atmosphere, Yurushia pointed her friendly smile towards her servants.

“You guys, good luck. I’ll forgive you if you successfully escape from these people.”

Her bright voice multiplied the effect of her heartless words, Yurushia spread out her little arms to stretch.


“ … [Let There Be Light] … ”


Without any fear or tension, nobody could react to her all-too-natural action.

As the vampires noticed that Yurushia had casted Holy magic and went on guard, they saw an unbelievable thing.

A light that was neither dazzling or white, but was darker than mere darkness, a [Black Light] that spread as if ink had been dumped on the world, even the vampires could not have foreseen this newly dyed night.

In the confusion, everyone heard the echo of the merry voice of Yurushia.


“[Now. I’ll be the seeker, fufufu.]”


App’s Notes: The Bracket speech is back, boys and girls. We’re in business.


Also, if you’re ever commenting on older chapters and want to make sure I notice them, make up some random email address, so that I have to approve the comment, those show up with a big red notation, so I see them every time.



Piroton’s Notes: someone please send help I’m stuck in a place with no internet and no life and many things to do I’m dying~


Besides that, I’m really looking forward to the next few chapters. It’s gonna be fun, fun, fun. If I can manage it I’ll try to put out more edits faster so that I can shift pressure back on App again, ufufufufu.

    those monster will be damned, for their enemy is Yurushia~

  2. Clesesia says:

    Thanks for chapter.
    Vampire + 4 fool child will be her food, fufufufu.

  3. Manga Hunter says:

    The children are s******.
    Thanks for the chapter.

    • Silver says:

      At first I forgave them a tiny bit but after this line.
      “Wearing a calm smile, their master was a saint, they hoped she would earn enough time for them to escape on their own.”
      (▼皿▼#) Let them suffer.

  4. RoflCat says:

    Just something that I noticed after checking the raw.

    Noah’s name is ‘wrong’



    • App says:

      Yup, but there are no names in Latin languages for that, so it’s close enough for us. (Even if it did make spoiler spoiler a little more difficult, we made it still work)

      • RoflCat says:

        How about Notus (the one from Mushoku)?

        • App says:

          Never met or heard of anyone by that name, and it’s far too late to change it now. Also, that would make the happenings of Chapter 13 make even less sense than the current plan. Suffice it to say, we’re happy for your suggestion, but it won’t be used. Thank you regardless.

  5. LygarX says:

    You dun Goofed. All of you filthy vampires are dead.

  6. name moniker says:

    Yuru is too OP~

  7. AO says:

    Well let the RED TEA PARTY BEGIN…with a touch of dark fluffiness

  8. Anonymous says:

    Much thanks.

  9. kuma says:

    Wow the hunter being hunted!!, Thanks Kuma!!!

  10. Infernal says:

    So she turned on the dark? What is she, a grue?

    • Degs says:

      Rather than creating light, she sucked it away, like a black hole :3

      • App says:

        Think of it like Magical Darkness. The light’s still there, there’s just something more powerful covering it up.

        • Joshan says:

          Actually that effect can be created by changing the wavelength of all visible light in that place to 1 people cant see it would look as if the world turned dark but it would still be “light”

    • When you think about it, shadows are caused by Light making outlines of things with mass and such. So it kinda makes sense that shadow/darkness also falls under the category of Light/Holy magic.

  11. adaira says:

    there’s always a bigger fish, poor vampires

  12. Degs says:

    Time for those brats to disappear. Fucking finally~
    And be washed down with some snacks hohoho~
    Tag you’re it! Snack #1

    Thank you~ <3

  13. Anno says:

    Yay~~ thanks you for the new chapter!

  14. Naga says:

    This is awesome XD

  15. I hope it at least to the vampires a chance to notice that she is not a human but a demon…
    Thanks for the chapter

  16. SUNOFA says:

    I wonder if she did something similar to her sisters?

  17. Anon says:

    Pro-tip, there’s always a bigger fish. And someone already said that, damn.

  18. RK says:

    Thank you so much for your hard work! Finally, the four children get what has been coming for them!

  19. Wooly Marmot says:

    What witnesses can be allowed to survive? I can’t think of any. Poor Yuru-chan is going to overeat again. She won’t be at her best–and then she’ll need a cover story. How is she going to handle it all?

    “[And thanks for the chapter.]”

  20. YanYanTDH says:

    Now… The bloody night begins. Fufufu Red Tea Party? Those children will now be taken care of. This night they will know true terror. 😈

  21. Onlooker says:

    I love you guys \ (= 3 =) /

    ahhhhhh i hate cliff hangers so much TT-TT)g
    Amazing work as always!

    I’ve been wondering for a while- why is this novel/series hard to translate?

    • App says:

      It’s probably got the highest level of vocabulary out of the currently running novels that are being translated. Most Light/Web novels are written at about a second grade level, whereas this one is more of a sixth grade or so level.

      • Onlooker says:

        !!! Wow! thank you so much for all your effort then!

        I would’ve loved to have read this in its original form~
        I’m very weak with reading kanji TT3TT

        • App says:

          Thank you for your kindness. Our team’s goal is not just to meet accuracy goals but enhance meaning, so hopefully it wouldn’t read all that different. (Ignoring the obvious grammar differences between the languages.)

  22. DocteurNS says:

    I don’t really want Millaine to die. She’d make a great pet.

    • libraryrocker says:

      no don’t like, kill kill kill

      • DocteurNS says:

        So much violence in this world… *shakes head sadly*

        • Cheeseburger says:

          You have to understand that she’s a vampire and not a dog. Unlike Yuru who can simply feed on people’s strong emotion, Milliane needs to eat people. If she is kept alive, there will only be an increase on body count. Also, less people means less source of food for Yuru.

          • Fellow f5 Sect Daoist says:

            To be honest, we’ve met a couple of annoying people that could potentially be ‘fed’ to Milliane, and Yuru will most definitely meet more annoying people in the future. Milliane seems like a good investment, in terms of getting rid of pests, as well as increasing Yuru’s following (Milliane’s followers will merge with Yuru’s once they are seen hanging out together).

          • Cheeseburger says:

            And when there’s no more bad people available to feed her? What then?

          • DocteurNS says:

            Invade the neighbouring country which is no doubt full of evil slavers. And, besides, is it even possible to run out of bad guys?

  23. Wen Yang says:

    To be Fair, the Vamp’s logic of hiding in the midst of enemy territory is a sound plan.

    Too bad, a bigger monster is already there ahead of them. 😀

    • Cheeseburger says:

      She doesn’t need to be ahead. Such things like hiding and surprise attacks, or for that matter, any kind of combat technique or fitting style is nothing to an existence which is both omniscient and omnipotent.
      The mistake they made is that they believed that they are the strongest.

  24. YotsubaMaya says:

    My bet is the 4 brats will survive

  25. Cheeseburger says:

    Well, like the other guy said in the last chapter, they did invited Satan.

  26. Adobo says:

    Yurushia’s walpugiris night has come… fufufu….

  27. libraryrocker says:


    *runs around*


    *settles down*

    I wonder if the four dipshits survive? XD XD XD Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!!

    • thanghe says:

      those 4 will survive if they can provide her a decent meal (emotion)
      If their flavour is poor, she will throw them away
      On another hand, if it’s too delicious, she may accidently get drunk and gnaw on them

      • renuac says:

        Since she’s leaving them to vampires, I don’t think she is interested in eating them though. But what an economical and hassle-free way of getting rid of them. Her papa should be proud: his lessons in business have paid off.

        It amuses how this series hints at all these grand tales (vampires terrifying an entire country, saints and heroes fighting demon kings, etc.) and Yuru just doesn’t care or completely tears through it all.

        Thank you for the chapter.

  28. FranckOA says:

    Once again, condemned to death by cuteness ;o)

    Will it be again a little over-enthousiastic neck rub ?

  29. Marky Mark says:

    Been waiting for this chapter (because my brain cramped reading the google translated chapter)

    Yuru is steadily becoming “Rengar” xD

    Hopefully the next chapter wont be too long. Thanks again app-sama

  30. Hecate says:

    Kitta kitta kitta kittaaaaaaaaaa

    Finally we can see yuru’s awesomeness again ….

    Now for the 4annoying child … may the god bless you …

    Hue hue hue hue

  31. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap
    fluffyness is justice

  32. Kojiro_S says:

    Let the hunt begin.

  33. MushyMirae says:

    Thanks for the chapter but can you please overwork your translations machine just this once please? >.<

    Thank youuuu..

  34. kirindas says:

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  35. Ricecal says:

    The hunt begins,
    Thank you very much

  36. DOHere says:

    I still don’t get why the 4 children weren’t charmed at all by her….but they were charmed by those vampires??

    • star says:

      they were a little at first, but yuru wasn’t using full power charm because it would be obvious to the other people around her, that she likes. like her mom and dad, or the king, or the royal guards, etc etc. so it wore off and they treated her like some random rich girl.

  37. Eds_Sde says:

    All is fun and games until someone makes Yuru angry.
    (TL= Hunting Signals: Departure to the hunt)

    cant wait for next chapter.

  38. Blob says:

    Finally those four get what was coming for them, and the hunter (s) becomes the hunted.

  39. Salty Dog says:

    As I read this chapter, this song popped into my head.

  40. Mitchell says:

    It’s butt whooping time!

  41. Acmeth says:

    This is one of them moments that you are like fuck I need next chapter.

  42. Toaster says:

    Let the hunt begin~

  43. Zypex says:

    it’s soo late right now. but it’s soooo gooood.

  44. Yurushia is so badass.

  45. EmileLouisJolie says:

    Punishment time for them naughty kids ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  46. accountmadeforants says:

    Damn, that cliffhanger is just painful. Not because I want to know what happens, but because I’m pretty sure what happens next is going to be fantastic and I just want to read it right this instant.

    Yuru really makes for a fantastic demon. She appears as an angel to everyone else, and occasionally even has us fooled with her “human” side, but she’s more terrifying than anyone else. Something that is genuinely kind and caring, and genuinely takes pleasure in the suffering of others.

  47. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Bon appétit Yuru~

    Thank you kindly for all the hard work. :>

  48. YoungMind says:

    I didn’t realise until those recent chapters that those 4 children were really troublesome children and didn’t like Yurushia that much. I thought that theyr were just peculiar children. It’s great that she is teaching them a lesson ! Can’t wait to read more 😊

    • Cheeseburger says:

      They were, after all, children of fallen nobles. Specifically nobles involved in the demon summoning. And as the saying goes “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”.

  49. whisper says:

    hahaha so she was feeding those four to vampires. i like that, thanks for the chapter

  50. A random potato says:

    I love how Yuru came out and admitted she wast human subtly but silver missed it. Calling a ruby a claw file and tearing it up with her fingernails.

    Yuru in hunting mode will be great. I can’t wait for more.

  51. Aforia says:

    They dared to neglect Yuru?! No entertainment? That’s no problem, she’ll take the lead and entertain herself aplenty fufufu

  52. Anonymous says:

    I thought Yuru wanted to be neglected a bit …having all these people around who wouldn’t let her use her own chubby little legs?

  53. ? says:

    I kinda wanted Millaine to be an ally for Yurishia:(
