Volume 3, Chapter 16: I Turned 10 Years Old …… And So On, Part 1


Rick and Noel were at the front of the people who were running towards us…… Or not, it was three Holy Knights.

Those who piled up training in a temple and were practically heavy tanks that practiced defensive Holy Magic.

Due to that, they knew of Demonic Magic, and upon seeing 【His】 body, they subconsciously stopped walking, while Rick and Noel rushed forward.

“Yurushia, are you alright!?”

“Lucy, come down!”

Rick (once again) grabbed my arm and pulled me away, while Noel held out his sword, covering me.

“……What is that thing …”

Rick let out a hoarse whisper, as Noel’s face turned pale and started sweating profusely.

We (the attendants and I) had shaved down a lot of it, but 【His】 sheer existence… that presence was incomparably brutal if matched against the creatures of this world.



He stared as us-…… No, 【He】 was only gazing intently at [Me].

I wonder what 【He】 is thinking now…… Although if I were to be frank, I was a little happy that he was thinking of of bringing me home after [Breaking] my body, but I just can’t respond to his one-sided selfishness.


“Roderick-sama, Yurushia-sama, please come down”

A little later, the Knights reached us. 3 Holy Knights and 8 Royal Knights. Along with 7 of my escort knights, including Bri-chan and Sara-chan. As expected, Vio is also close by.

One of the Holy Knights… a silver-grey-haired uncle, turned his shield towards 【Him】 with a nervous look.

“…That, is a considerably high-ranking Demon. I think it is a Demon Beast…… Did Yurushia-sama suppress it with her power?”

“Ye-, yeah…… Well, I-”


Now…… what to do? No matter how weakened a lion is, it can’t be beaten by rabbits. Since their existences are of a whole different [Class],  it can’t be helped that the Human Knights can’t do anything.

“This is where us knights will take over. Please, evacuate…”

Another one of the Holy Knights gave us a stoic smile. Even Bri-chan’s face had greatly stiffened, but it looked as if she wasn’t about to back down.



I could see the signs of【Him】 getting annoyed at the humans that were moving to [Protect] me and noticed his magic power gradually rising.

To tell the truth, neither I nor 【He】 has much magic power left.

In order to try to force me to return, 【He】 would try to replenish his magic power by devouring the souls of these humans who were in his way.

If it wasn’t a soul that was tormented and then made to deepen, even if it was taken, it would not be able to help 【Him】 recover.

…… It seems that 【He】 wouldn’t give up on me until his heart broke.


It can’t be helped…… It’s bad to get everyone involved, but I have to break 【Him】 here.


“…[Light of Protection]”

Suddenly, hearing me recite a spell that they’d never heard of, Rick and Noel turned towards me in surprise.

“[Radiant Shield]…!”


” ” “!?” ” ”

The bodies of all the humans were enveloped in a [Golden Light], and the Holy Magic-using Holy Knights’ eyes widened at the [Greatest Protective Power]of the most ridiculous magic they had ever experienced.





Seeing me protect the [Humans], 【He】 let off an angry roar.

The sheer overwhelming power of his evil roar was enough to instantly kill a human being as soon as they heard it, but with the added protection of my [Radiant Shield],  I prevented it and further increased the power of the humans.


“Everyone, show your pride as Knights of the Holy Kingdom!”

” ” “Yes!” ” ”

As Rick raised his voice in encouragement, the Knights who had had stoic expressions righted themselves and regained their fighting spirits, raising their swords.



I did it again……

I had added the function of 【Raising Fighting Spirits】 to the 【Radiant Shield】 to help counter the pressure of the Demon roar, but it seems that it was too effective……

“We shall support them.”

“Ah, yes…… please.”

As my attendants who read the mood said before I could ask, since they asked me, I gave my assent to Fannie.





Raising a roar, 【He】 dashed across the ground, but he’s lost the speed he previously had. Still, even that was enough to lay waste to the human Knights.

“I will receive~ it”

Speaking with a relaxed voice, Nia rushed out ahead of the Holy Knights, and stopped 【His】 attack with the Golden Blade (Nyanko Blade).

The attendants’ magic powers were starting to run out, but if Nia used 【Absorption】, she could still take 【His】 attack.


The Knights expressed their astonishment as they witnessed a 12 year old lady knight receive the attack of that Demon Beast.

Since it couldn’t be helped so that the collateral damage would be completely nullified, it was  too conspicuous if they thought too much about it, so had to make a decision quick.


“Noel~, get back here!”


When I caught him trying to get on the front line, Noel returned obediently even though he had a doubtful look.

“Lucy, what’s wrong…?”

“No, well, just wait a moment. …Fannie.”

As I called Fannie, she reverently presented the golden Demon blade that I had made as a spare.

“In the name of Yurushia-la-Verusenia, I bestow upon you this [Holy sword]. Receive it, Noel.”


Noel who had been taken aback for a moment knelt down, and received the [Holy Sword] (temp) like a Knight.

For some reason Rick, who was next to him, looked sullen, but I don’t care.


The Knights were fighting surprisingly well.

With the additional protection of my 【Radiant Shield】, Nia receiving 【His】 attacks, and Noa and Tina assisting them with ‘normal’ magic power, the result is obvious, even if I say so myself.

“Yurushia-sama, shall I go as well?”

“Not yet. That said, I’m thirsty, so please serve up some tea. Ah, go heavy on the souls.”


Since Rick’s already gone to give instructions to the knights, I just changed to watching mode, and waited, fully prepared.


As the Holy Knights fought, they healed their companions with the Holy Magic 【Cure】, and my attendants were assisting them by shaving off 【His】 magic power. I instantly healed those who were seriously injured as the timing I was waiting for drew near, and finally the moment came.




Speaking the [Spirit of Light’s Language] as he had done previously, the power of light condensed within the Golden Demon Blade in Noel’s hands, and he swung down at 【Him】 as 【He】exposed a slight gap.


“[Splitting Light, Holy Sword]…”


Aiming for that exact moment, I reinforced the 【Shining Sacred Sword】magic on Noel’s Golden Blade.

Although the spell 【Holy Sword】exists in Holy Magic, my magic is of the highest caliber, and the power of it was a complete order of magnitude greater.

“Perish, Demon!”


When Noel swung down the sword, it emitted a bright light and turned into a huge golden sword, forcing 【Him】 to fall back dozens of meters.

…… To not have taken much damage even from that attack, he’s really really far out of their league.



Nonetheless, its power exceeded his expectations, and for the first time in the fight, 【He】 became wary of a human, setting Noel who was wielding the golden demon blade firmly in his sights.

“……That… not enough…”

“Noel’s attack seemed effective, so are you going to do it again?”


As Rick spoke to Noel, he took up a position beside him, readying his sword.



When I finished drinking my tea, I approached them quietly, putting myself one step in front of them so as to protect them, and showed a [Sly] expression that nobody but 【Him】 noticed.



When I heard the sound of 【His】teeth grinding together, I finally noticed how unfavourable my position was and leapt up into the sky, as he stared at me from a distance.

I could feel the anger, but I can’t feel 【His】 will to fight anymore.

He’d been defeated once by me (pet), albeit while I was being protected by my attendants, and after which he couldn’t defeat even a single human being, as I acted like a [Human] and lived amongst them, finally causing 【Him】 to break down.

It was bothersome in various ways……

I wish I could just return to the Demon World happily as it is………

Staring at 【Him】 with that thought, as I turned away from 【Him】, he finally called me by my 【Name】 and not just【Golden Beast】.


“[YurushiaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! I will definitely bring you back to the Demon World the next tiiiiime!]”


…… Has he not been broken completely yet?


Author’s Notes:

The next round is the final story of book 3.


App’s Notes:

Hah, bet you didn’t see that coming… nobody got possessed! (I promise… <_<)


Also, dat name drop tho

Piroton’s Notes:

I have become dead, destroyed by cute.

When is this sore throat going to go away ; _ ; Kind of anticlimactic, isn’t it, that showdown. Ah well. Things get more interesting.

  1. Mashiro says:

    Poor guy.. heart broken that his fluff was taken from him. Yuru’s, possessive tsun-tsun boyfriend is as selfish as ever. Im sure she will fix that about him…. Sometime…… Maybe…..

  2. Meralalala says:

    Kuhhh…. Why does almost every male turns into a yandere these days? But anyways, yandere-ism has its own romantic vibes~!

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  3. GGFBank says:

    Feel a bit sad for Dark Beast. He can’t his friend back.
    And he get hit by nyanko blade too.

  4. Belphegor says:

    Is it just me or is the chapter really that short? Anyways thanks for the chapter!

  5. djdreye says:

    Thanks for the chapter! Gotta feel bad for Dark Beast. He lost his love, and then she betrayed him due to his selfishness. I wonder if he’ll be able to come down as a human.

    • Ori says:

      Well, also out of her selfishness. They are a pair of demons. He also is being impatient and childlike, probably because he is so powerful this hasn’t happened. If he wants her back he is going to have to be a little more cunning.

  6. Ricecal says:

    Thank you very much

  7. Anonymous says:

    Much thanks.

  8. Kvetha says:

    Thank you very much for the chapter!

  9. XeroDK says:

    I really hope that Dark Beast gets to stay and cuddle Yuru some more.

  10. Yukino says:

    Does he speak in a language that other humans understand or only the demon actually understand what he said? And a shame he didn’t possess anyone.

    • Ongoingwhy says:

      I don’t think it matters. Since they would probably think that the demon was planning to kidnap their precious princess.

  11. Sherrynity says:

    Well, this novel is fvcked up from the beginning. There were many scenes that slightly differentiated from normal human behaviours and moral values, perfectly depicting Yurushia as a demon in human skin.
    That’s why I’m not that intrigued by how Yuru treats Kuro (my nick for him). I feel like “Ah, how Yurushia-ish. Whimsical like a cat, and cruel like a demon, but so self-centered like a human.”

  12. SaMu says:

    Thanks for the chapter.
    The events in this chapter would make their reunion in the demon world … violently awkward

  13. Zypex says:

    hoh, tough cookie ey?

    Yet another wonderful chapter filled with Yurushia-sama. Thanks very much for the chapters!

  14. Mellow says:

    Ohhh whatt so he came to witness betrayal and for a fight scene? But he still insist on bringing he yuru-pet back~
    But I felt like, that’s all? To finally came just to return… Uuu Yuru, rather than that, he’s having a broken heart *sniff sniff*

  15. Tinchen says:

    ty for the chap
    and dawww would have loved to have him in her household…

  16. Loki says:

    Dont get me wrong, i like black beast-kun
    But why are all the damn males around her so annoying

  17. Candied Skull says:

    That was probably far less cuddly of a reunion than Black Beast or Yurushia originally expected. Except for the Nyan sword…

  18. aantia says:


    Isn’t that just a kissing sound? What kind of weird language of light is that?

    • App says:

      Honestly, the greek lettering probably just struck the author as “strange looking” I can say that it casts quite the contrast next to the original japanese.

  19. Dark Beast uses *turn oji-san*
    It’s very effective!
    Yurushia faint.

    Well, that was what i wish. Oh well! Anyway, thank you for your translations~

  20. Barbaric Bob says:

    damnit best husbandu has been beaten ~,~

  21. ogshurkin says:

    i wanted him to be a pet cat 🙁

  22. Holow says:

    Somehow this became an unnecessary drama of love ….. black beast needs a girl by his side so that yurushia suffer a little.

    What is coming is only yurushia’s fault.
    Well thanks for the chapter, only a chapter of the end and the last book begins

  23. Will_Manders says:

    I think in next chapter Black Beast escape, possess Daemon King and begin a war with Humanity.
    I don’t like that ending, don’t like Black Beast. I like fluffiness, his not fluffy, his plain and annoying.

  24. Whisper says:

    thanks for the chapter. ufufu its good. it would be boring if yurushia just return to demon world like that

    now the human realize yuru cuteness even tempted demon beast xD

  25. DOHere says:

    Can’t he become a pretend human as well? (இ﹏இ`。)

  26. Kimagure says:

    Thank you for the chapter!

    By the way, shouldn’t it be “He finally noticed how unfavourable his position was and leapt up into the sky, as he stared at me from a distance.”? And not I? After all, she holds the position of power in this situation and he’s the one who fled.

  27. BlackBeastlover666 says:

    Yuri you bitch, you don’t deserve black beast senpai, not only you tried to mind break him, you even NTR’d him with noel… PROTECT DARK BEAST SENPAI HEART FROM THIS SEMEN DEMON!TT-TT

  28. Kurenaro says:

    Black Beast still love Yurushia? Wow. Actually I kinda pity him. Well, Yurushia’s happiness is more important~ so whatever. Thanks for teh chapter desu~

  29. Purpleeee says:

    Aww hope they can make up again

  30. gantono says:
