Volume 2, Chapter 15: Demon’s Feast, Part 2


 

“Oh… is this the end of our game of tag? Or did you already resign yourself to death.”

 

As we entered the cave, Millaine called out to us in a condescending tone, surrounded with handsome butlers.

Good, it’s great that she’s so confident. Count Oberu, who stood next to her, is staring curiously at Noa and Nia, whose atmosphere had changed.

I figured that Millaine hadn’t ordered her subordinates to attack as a deliberate show of her own confidence, but the Count is not doing so due to caution.

As expected of the wisdom of elders… or is it? Does age even matter to a vampire?

 

“I got tired of it, and I need to go home soon, so goodbye.”

While I got into my [Duke’s Daughter] mode and smiled, Millaine’s [Noble Mask] cracked a little as her mood worsened immediately. I spoke candidly……

 

“…Although, there seems to be less of you than when I first arrived earlier? Did some of you become food to someone on their way here?”

“I attacked them. They died.”

Nia returned without incident after her slaughter.

Seriously, it’s great to be able to relax.

“Well, the other two are keeping the Countess company at her other party outside. She seemed rather bothered, being left alone.”

“… So, Yurushia-sama, you still think you’ll get home alive…?”

Millaine said, her voice drawing the thousands of runts forward, causing them to show their fangs in an attempt at intimidation.

No need to be impatient. What should we do…?

 

“Yurushia-sama, may I please have your permission to exterminate the pests?”

As the vampires’ thirst for blood swelled, Noa walked forward, asking me for permission in a calm tone.

“Yurushia-sa-ma~, it’s fine, right?”

Nia seems motivated… isn’t she? She’s waving her sword around in a lackadaisical manner looking bored. I guess she’s motivated in her own way.

“…Will you be alright?”

Millaine and the Count seem decently strong, and I’d really hate it if these children were hurt.

“No problem.”

“…Okay. Just don’t try too hard and get hurt.”

 

Oh well, worst case scenario, I can fly them away… I thought comfortably.

 

 

“Nia, [Release].”

“Yes.”

……Eh?

All of a sudden, an evil presence surged from Noa and Nia. Dozens of runts were instantly killed and turned to ash..

The atmosphere around the two changed. Their presence changed. The biggest change of the two was that a pair of sinister black horns emerged from the sides of their heads, curling around like a goat’s.

Ooooh… how demonic.

 

“Ahahaha!”

At the sudden change, the vampires were stunned, and even I was caught by surprise. Nia holds up her sword in front of her, and cut dozens of the runts in half with a single swing, [Absorbing] their life forces and souls.

The [Power] flowed from Nia to Noa. Noa roared out with a dragon-like breath, reducing hundreds of runts to ash as he [Released] the power.

 

“……Eh…”

How terrifying these children are.

Even for something with the [Setting] of a Greater Spirit of the Demon Realm, this is too much.

Noa’s setting is an [Incubus]; he is able to [Release].

Nia’s setting is a [Succubus]; she has the capacity to [Absorb].

Of course with their age, the 18+ setting is prohibited, but even so, their fighting power is very high…

The two outside, were they also this deadly?

 

“Youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!”

(TL: Elongate this yourself, as“You” is impossible to do that to in writing: Omae-waaaaaaaaaaaa!)

 

Millaine has finally broken, plunging towards me while shouting incomprehensible things.

Things like “You what?” or “Get out, you” I don’t get it.

I dodge Millaine’s attack with her sharp claws, Noa noticed and was about to come back, but I held out my hand to tell him to stop.

 

“Millaine. Will you keep the weak me company?”

“Don’t mess around with meeeeeeeeee!”

 

This child, how touchy……

 

 

At first, Millaine thought that this would just be some entertaining prey-hunting…

When the girl had the boldness to provoke her while knowing her true nature, she used some sort of [Blackout] spell, one which even the Count, in his 500 years of life, hadn’t seen. While these were surprising, she was still just a human. Even if she was referred to as a [Saint] there should have been a limit.

 

The first surprise was the transformation of two of her servants.

They should have just been human children, but after transforming, they destroyed hundreds of runts with magic power, things like that were impossible.

Those [Demons]… A high-level demon like that needed a higher cost to [Manifest].

Even with natural talent, doing that would take perhaps hundreds of years… no, it would take thousands of years of study.

 

When did they appear…? When did they possess those human children? Where did the Countess go? Could it be that the other two [Inhuman] children were giving her trouble?

Could she have used her position as [Princess] of the Holy Kingdom to do a demon summoning at a gigantic scale…? No, the Holy Kingdom wouldn’t allow such a thing.

She thought about whether there was an evil tool passed down in the duke’s family which could control [Demons], the tool would have to be [Legendary Class] to manipulate these many, and even if it existed it should have been securely sealed away.

 

{… I should withdraw.}

The Count and Millaine. The Countess would run from those other two later.

But, the abilities of those two were unknown; they didn’t know what would happen.

 

That was when the Count thought to himself.

‘To be accompanied by such a Demon, that Saint… just who is Yurushia?’

 

A simple human girl would not be able to continuously dodge Millaine’s attacks.

200 years is a long life for a Greater Vampire. No matter how many dozens of average knights, she could split their shields with her bare hands, snap their swords, and bring forth enough force to instantly crush their armor.

{… Unless! Is she a [Hero]?}

The Count discarded that stupid idea and shook his head.

Once every several hundred years, the Hero would appear in the Holy Kingdom to drive out the evil forces of the country, surely the Hero wouldn’t walk alongside Demons.

 

The same was true of a [Saint]… but what if she wasn’t a [Saint]?

On the contrary…

“… It can’t be.”

Sweat flowed profusely from the Count’s forehead.

What if the girl wasn’t [Human], but another high-ranking [Demon] that was being accompanied by more Demons…?

 

But, what kind of [Existence] could possibly have so much power to control an Arch Demon?

The Count watched Millaine attack the little girl, and noticed.

Millaine’s butlers and maids, why weren’t they helping her? No, they were going to help, but each time they moved to strike, they held back, entranced by the beauty of Yurushia, and stopping in their tracks.

 

The Count thought that it was [Charm].

But, that was wrong, he immediately changed his thoughts.

It’s said that a demon [Charms] a human, but in fact, demon’s don’t have any power to [Charm].

What had [Charmed] the vampires was not the performance; it was a kind of magic a long lived vampire would spend their nearly endless life creating.

It was triggered by [Line of Sight], and used without casting a spell.

Moreover, the effect was weak; it could not overturn antagonistic feelings.

 

“… It can’t be… It can’t be… such a ridiculous power…”

 

In the five hundred years of the Count’s life, he had talked about high-ranking demons with human sages.

Legend had it, that of all the demons in the past, there was only a single [Demon] that could [Charm] others.

 

It had Beauty far surpassing that of a [Human].

After living for thousands of years, and by clutching the souls of countless people, it understood the [Human Mind].

Having a cold sort of beauty which turned people away, wrapped in a soft caring understanding of the [Human Mind], it [Charmed] all the beings around it, purely in its existence…

This [Demon] had knowledge called [Knowledge of Another World] obtained over a long time, communicating with Wise Men on a whim, bringing chaos to the people of the world.

That existence…

 

“……[The Devil]……”

 

If that was the case, this thing was from an entirely different [League] than vampires. They would not be able to flee even if he and Millaine combined their power.

At the time the Count thought this, he began to run from Millaine’s battle.

 

“Where are you going?”

 

The [Girl Demon] suddenly moved her sword towards him, and as soon as the black sword swung down, the thoughts of the Count were enveloped in darkness.

 

 

“You bastaaaaaaard!”

 

At the sight of Nia killing the Count with a single sword strike, Millaine yelled out in rage.

……What’s this?

“Millaine-chan, are you angry?”

“OBVIOUSLY!”

Oh my, what’s this?

Let’s have the good Miss settle down a little.

 

“It really is narrow here… since I’m just a little stronger, won’t all of you die?”

 

At my sudden voice, Noa and Nia who had finished their annihilation looked back with frightened faces. I grabbed Millaine by her attacking arm and collected demonic magic power in my fist, my consciousness spinning the words in the [Holy Spirit Language].

 

“… [Tsuranuke]… tsu!”

“… Tsu?”

 

Using the energy, I grab Millaine’s arm and fly up, flinging a fist against the bedrock roof of the cave.

*Bubon*

Pure demonic magic power used to speak the holy spirit language, the effects of the magic punched right through the rock ceiling, making a strangely comedic sound.

 

Oh well, the only goofy thing was the sound, the caves have been partially destroyed, and while it was good that I used some energy to leap off the ground, Millaine has fallen into a terrible state since I grabbed her arm, screaming all the while.

 

… Crud. I was too reckless with my movements, there’s not much magic power left.

 

“*Cough*, *Cough*”

Millaine, who came out with me into the sky grew out her own bat wings, flying in the sky while coughing from the dust.

But, she survived, huh… Excellent, excellent.

Her dress is in tatters… how erotic… Looking around, her eyes widened as she saw me.

I had my own wings too, my golden bat wings expanded for flight.

By the way, my dress wasn’t torn up. Obviously. I would never do such a thing as let the dress Father bought me get ruined.

 

“You… what’s with that appearance…?”

Millaine quickly stopped her voice and looks at me vigilantly.

She’s finally cautious of me.

I concentrate my magic power and laughed lightly as my eyes turned deep crimson and my fangs emerged.

 

“Well, I am a demon, after all.”

 

“… Demon…?”

After explaining, Millaine seemed to calm down, rather than be surprised again.

Certainly the existence of a human child who could earnestly avoid Millaine’s attacks as a vampire would destroy her self-confidence.

“Hey~, Millaine.”

“What is it…?”

With a powerful [Demon] in front of her, Millaine took up a listening posture. Now I’m unsatisfied.

 

“Please be my subordinate.”

 

“………… Haaaah?”

Millaine’s cautious face suddenly became messed up.

I wouldn’t have said such a thing if there was no chance.

“What kind of idiot… do you think I am…?”

“Well…? Just being friends would be all right.”

“… Wh-what…”

As I give my demand plainly, Millaine has a confused face, her mouth hanging open.

A breath goes by.

“Else, die…?”

“……”

After that, I give her an exciting deal. Since I’m a demon.

Millaine looks at my demonic appearance, then the large hole in the ground. After a moment of silence, heaving a large sigh, she speaks.

“… Got it. I will… be your friend.”

 

Yes! There’s a good place to land around here.

Actually, I was dangerously close to running out of magic power. I might have lost if I seriously fought with Millaine… It’s my own stupid fault.

 

“You’re not angry anymore?”

“I’m not angry… I thought a lowly human was making a fool out of me and that I had been betrayed by the Count and that lot so quickly…”

Millaine sighs as if she’s given up something.

As I thought…

When Nia destroyed the Count, her anger was less than from my fooling with her. I figured as much, somehow.

 

“For the time being, please take care of me, Millaine.”

“Yes, yes, good luck to you Yurushia-sama.”

 

Thus, the vampire threat closing in on the Holy Kingdom was resolved, with nobody being the wiser.

But I am sorry, Millaine…

Your life, I’ll only be using it as [Education] for my servants, though I won’t tell.

 


Author’s Notes:

Yurushia’s 『Otherworldly Wisdom』 – > 『Hair Restoration』

(Piro: I’m sorry, App.)

 



App’s Notes:

Other alternate translations of the term used include: Beelzebub, Lucifer, The Prince of Darkness, other names, and, of course, Satan.

And Mephistopheles, but I’m only leaving this hint to the more enterprising of you.

Hidden White Colored 17


Piroton’s Notes: dun dun duuuun

We have a super-Yuru! It’s wonderful watching her actually beat down something. It was getting a little too fluffy, though I’m not complaining. Fun times.

 

The Devil is actually written by the author, like “The Devil” as in “Demon God” (in kanji). Quite an interesting concept. Yurushia the sunshine of the Demon world, as its demon lord.

 

And soon, Book 2 will come to a close….

    Butler?

    Thanks for the new chapter!

    Oooo, I wonder if that other one of her race is a devil as well and going to be her man waifu

  6. Zypex says:

    Yurushia-sama!

  7. Crazyh says:

    @app

    When you leave notes like that, you need to be more subtle…

    The glaringly large gap after your visible notes makes it rather obvious there is something beneath it.

  8. Mteeh says:

    My respons is….
    Tsu!?

  9. djdreye says:

    Thanks for the chapter! I wonder what Vio is going to think about the attendants now. It’s got to be odd to think they are now far more attractive and in love with Yuru.

  10. LygarX says:

    So Majin? what is the characters used. every author has their own preference

  11. So is she gonna have Millaine be a teacher of common sense, history, and other stuff to her 4 demon servants (kids/pets?)? Or is she just gonna feed her as a snack or something?

  12. Marky Mark says:

    Thanks for the chapter.
    I think Yuru will be the Queen of the demons because “Him” Dark beast is the Demon God.
    A new pet has arrived for Yuru xD

  13. Qinqing says:

    Wait, i don’t understand. First it is the golden beast, then it is the sunshine of demon. How come it become the devil? I mean i can’t imagine the word devil together with sunshine of demon world. It don’t connect at all. And i though yuru is like wife of the black beast but how can she’s the one with ‘The Devil’ title?

    • Cabman says:

      first things first. The word first things first. The word devil originally means the Deceiver.
      and it is explained hear that the devil is someone that truly understands the human mind. This actually fits her description.

      an otherworldly being of high Grace and knowledge. A true devil.

      also spoiler. Black beast is not a devil or Demon Lord. He’s a beast. One of the strongest beast
      A beast on the same class with those strongest.
      devils are completely “different” from demon Lords and beasts

      And for the sunlight thing. Originally Lucifer was known as The Morning Star.

      plus the fact that she’s actually a nice gold demon means she is the Literal Light of the dark hell

      • Cannibox says:

        Wow, did not actually see your comment till after I posted a similar one….sorry about that…

        Still, good to see someone else made the connection.

    • Anonymous says:

      She isn’t called golden beast by the black beast because she took the form of a cat. The ones who called her sun was the little demons she took care of before coming to the human realm. The count called her the devil prior to his knowledge. just the same as her being called a saint simply because she’s able to use holy magic at such a young age.

    • Ori says:

      Also remember that she is not the first. Remember Mephy? He appeared claiming to be the same race, clearly has other world knowledge and also has understanding of the human mind. He also tried to charm her, but same race and all.

      She is not the Devil the count is recalling, as this is only her first appearance in the real world, Mephy was the first one, she is in the same class as him though.

      As for the Black beast, he is just a really powerful normal devil, consider him the first one charmed.

      So just consider her Chibi-Satan just learning the ropes.

  14. RoflCat says:

    >“It really is narrow here… since I’m just a little stronger, won’t all of you die?”

    “This place is rather small…it’ll be a little bit strong, so everyone try not to die ok?”
    (hinting at her about to cause the cave-in with that hole-making punch)

    >“… [Tsuranuke]… tsu!”

    [Pierce] should work fine here, or [Pierce through]

    >“What kind of idiot… do you think I am…?”

    “What stupid thing are you…’Me’ becoming subordinate”
    alt: “What stupid thing are you…this me becoming subordinate or such…”

    >“Well…? Just being friends would be all right.”

    “Is that so…? Then just being friend is fine too.”

    And since it’s basically reusing the same ‘nara’ for contrast, I’d change the subsequent

    >“Else, die…?”

    to “Then, die…?”

    >“I’m not angry… I thought a lowly human was making a fool out of me and that I had been betrayed by the Count and that lot so quickly…”

    “Not anymore…I was only angry because I thought a human was making a fool out of me. The Count and co. are the type to easily betray their allies anyway.”
    (the latter part explaining that she’s not angry about Nia killing the count)

    >Your life, I’ll only be using it as [Education] for my servants, though I won’t tell.

    That your lives were only used for [Education] of my servants, I can’t say it.

    She’s referring to how she accepted the invitation, knowing well that it’s from a ‘beast’, mainly to use Millaine and Co. in reforming the problem children.

    • DOHere says:

      About the [Education] thing. It still doesn’t explain why she let her live. Even without keeping her a life, the kids have been “taught a lesson” / “[Education]”.
      Taking her life or not doesn’t make any difference to the lesson she taught them.

      • RoflCat says:

        Short version is: Because Yuru want to have her as friend/subordinate, nothing more than that.

        It’s pretty much right there in the conversation.
        If Millaine is willing to have friendly relation, great (be it as friend or subordinate), if not then Yuru doesn’t mind killing her off either (hence the last option being death)

        Though if I am to speculate:
        Yuru have tendency to favor ‘adorable’ things (as previously shown with her girl friends, Noel, and even Rick to a degree)

        And from observing her, Yuru find Millaine’s straightforward attitude ‘adorable’ so she decided to try asking.
        The fact that she was low on magic power (though her definition of ‘low’ is probably still massive for others) might also nudge her in trying to not use up the rest of her magic power in fighting as well.

  15. Wooly Marmot says:

    Our fluffy demon left a survivor??? I swear, she’s getting careless.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  16. Suzy says:

    That was…very awkward at the end…

  17. libraryrocker says:

    Whaaaa????? Another long-suffering vampire girl??? Did the author read a certain book about a spider…. XD

    I really wonder if “The Devil” they refer to is the black bat-winged cat…. or the GIANT cat???? I feel like it’s probably the tinier one… the giant one feels like he’d be too impatient?

    Thank you VERY much for all your hard work!!!

  18. Cannibox says:

    Hmmm…methinks “Lucifer” would probably be the better translation…especially as Lucifer is also known as the “Morningstar”…which honestly quite fits our kitten…

    • DOHere says:

      But she hasn’t been living for as long as the Count said: thouands of years in the human realm. Also, the guy in her dream already said he was of the same species as her

  19. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Thank you kindly for all the hard work! :>

    The harem grows~

  20. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap

  21. ricecal says:

    Thank you very much

  22. MiTz says:

    a new chapter!!! thanks for the chaps!!! 😀

  23. Aforia says:

    Thank you for the chapter! I’d get tedious to feed this lot at some point I guess~

  24. Dragrath says:

    Ah I was suspecting the author might keep her alive after the amount of detail put into that vampire Princess (She was given a name which so far has meant a character Yuru has taken interest in especially)
    Not that it means she will be living long if she isn’t careful with feeding after all Yuru doesn’t like wasting food and those vampires seem to have been quite wasteful

  25. Hat says:

    Really, Lucifer was a translation choice and you chose ‘the Devil’ instead?

    Lucifer means ‘light bringer’. With the thematic elements of light around her, like her magic and the way she supposedly glows, and… well, everything, it seems like a vastly superior choice than ‘the Devil’.

    Not to mention ‘the Devil’ is pretty… generic sounding. Like, it’s a title, not a name!

  26. DOHere says:

    What does she mean: “[Education] for my servants”?

    I suppose that Devil is the guy from her dream. He probably was a reicarnated person from Earth, just like her, as he has “[Knowledge of Another World]”. Just that he’s been living in this world for longer than her and is probably more powerful.
    He did say something like: I’ve been waiting for a long time for someone like me, aka Yurushia.

    • RoflCat says:

      She wanted to use running into monsters to scare the children into reforming their ways (how specifically I have no idea)

      Yes the Devil the Count refers to is Mefi.
      He has knowledge of other worlds because he’s been going to various worlds (he even said so in 2-0: “With all my traveling between worlds, you can’t possibly appreciate the [Luck] you have for me to meet with you.”)

      Him saying Yuru being the same [species] is saying she is ‘also’ a Devil.
      (And given the conversation in 2-0, there’s no other Devil out there right now besides the two)

    • Anonymous says:

      “What does she mean: “[Education] for my servants”?”

      Actually, I think it’ll mean she wants her to train her servants how to function in human society. The problem with the guys she just summoned is that they consumed most of the souls of the bodies they took and inherited some minor quirks, but not memories and experience. So if she takes them back as they are now, they won’t be able to blend in and might quickly be exposed as non-humans. While Millaine has been living as a monster among humans with 200 years of experience and was even able to hide in the middle of a holy kingdom without being exposed. So she can teach those four how to pass for human. She can even tell the people back at her house that since they were doing to good a job as her attendents, she asked her new friend the silver princess to retrain them.
      Thats how I think it’ll go.

  27. accountmadeforants says:

    Huh, I expected Yuru to drag out “recruiting” the vampire girl a bit longer, really put the fear of God (Demon God, that is) in her.

    Rather, unlike the Count, it seems she doesn’t really understand just what Yuru’s existence means to her and this world… we may yet get an interesting little “rebellion” from her.

  28. illparazzo says:

    Thanks for the chapter!

  29. Kurenaro says:

    Thanks for the chapter desu~

  30. TheBlackFox says:

    I feel like in the future she will summon Black Beast as well and put him in future hero boy.
