Charmed

 

Ah, I wound up defeating Suira instantly.
But this feeling really is comfortable… ah!? Why am I using a move that takes her arm!?
Why didn’t I choose one that holds her legs!? I’m such an idiot!

“Wh—at, just…”
“I tripped you then held you in an arm bar… it’s just a technique for one on one combat.”
“Kuh, l-let go of me.”
“Sure.”

Suira asked me to release her, so I did.
Fufufu, now I can use a technique that lets me hold her legs. Suira, what a thoughtful woman you are.

“So then, what next?”
“… Tch, for everyone’s sake, I can’t lose here…!”
“So you have to defeat me? Pfft, sure, why not. I give up.”
“… Nn?”

There’s not really any meaning behind winning or losing here anyway.
So don’t we just call it my loss? Hmm? Suira’s looking at me strangely. She said that she couldn’t afford to lose, so why isn’t she happy about winning?
Hmmm… a woman’s heart is mysterious.

“Please spin in a circle and wave your hand.”
“Sure. Like this?”

I don’t really get it, but if Suira wants me to, why not?
I spun around and waved as Suira told me to.

“He… got charmed…?”
“Please wait, Onee-sama. I just checked that earlier. He might still be acting.”
“Then, umm… then could you sign the contract from a moment ago?

Those upturned eyes are unfair! C’mon, now I just have to sign it!

“Got it… This good?”

I signed the document that Suira held out to me once again. By the way, although I can’t write the characters of this world’s language even though I can read them, I’m now able to write a few words a bit shoddily with the glove-type golem I made with Rokuko’s collaboration. My name’s one of the words.
Suira looked at the document I’d passed back to her and checked to see if I really signed it. Hmm? She looks like a deer stuck staring at headlights. Her face looks great like that too.

“… We did it?”
“A-amazing, Onee-sama! You even charmed a man of a different preference!”
“No, that’s not it, Michiru. This man… doesn’t appear to be a lolicon.”

Ah, come to think of it, they were mistaking me for a lolicon, weren’t they? Seriously, I’m having to deny it all the time. Who’s spreading rumors like that?
It’s the fault of that rumor that Suira had such a strange misunderstanding about me… I’ll have to figure out who’s doing it and shut them down next time.

“… Village Chief, tell me a secret that you can’t tell anyone.”
“Hmm? A secret that no one can know… like what you two are?”
“Correct. Oh, please ignore that thing about Michiru.”
“Got it. So a secret I can’t tell anyone huh?”

A secret I can’t tell anyone huh, that’s pretty hard. If it were a big secret it’d have to be the dungeon, but I can talk to Rokuko and the others about it and they all know about my earth mage Narikin mast.
In other words, it has to be a secret I can’t even talk to Rokuko about… do I have something like that? Hmm, I have to think of something so that I can tell Suira about it…

“In truth… I still don’t really know the meaning of the word ‘partner’, but recently, my partner, Rokuko, has been casually getting into my personal space. It’s a bit scary…”

Yep, that’s a secret I can’t even talk to Rokuko about. Now it’s a secret I share with Suira.

“… Are you head over heels for her?” [1]
“Fufu, so you’re asking that? It’s alright, Suira is the only one in my heart.”
“That makes me so happy. Is there nothing else then? A fetish you can’t tell anyone perhaps?”
“Hmm, a fetish I can’t tell anyone about. That’s hard…”
“Are you a lolicon?”
“No.”

I am a foot fetishist, but it’s not like I’m hiding it. Rather, I’m pretty open about it. I even tell Rokuko I am whenever it comes up. And it feels like Meat knows something about it since she occasionally ‘forgets’ her socks in my room.
So as for something I can’t tell anyone… hmm, it really is hard. It doesn’t feel like I’ve had much of a libido since becoming a Dungeon Master in the first place?
But! If Suira is asking for it, a man must answer!

“Ah, right. Recently, I’ve felt a bit nice when I turn into a little girl.”
“… You like cross dressing?”
“Something like that? I mean, it’s a bit fun to be cute.”
“Hmm, that truly is a weakness…”

Weakness? I don’t really know if that is one, but Suira seems to be happy so it’s all good.
It might be fun to transform into Suira and make out with her.

“I’ve also been thinking that female bonding might be good recently.”
“Really? Then how about next time I turn you into a girl and tease you? It would be a sensation you can’t taste in reality.”
“That’d be awesome. I’ll look forward to it.”

I can actually use [Super Transformation] to become a girl in reality too, but a proper man wouldn’t resist a woman’s advances, probably? I think. Definitely. Maybe.

“So then, what do you hate?”
“My sleep being obstructed. If someone does that for something that has no reason related to me, I’ll… recognize them as an enemy and crush them. Anyone who disturbs my sleep is an enemy.”

This question was an easy one. Fufufu, but I wouldn’t mind if you woke me up yeah? Being able to hear Suira’s voice would be plenty enough of a reason… maybe it’d be just barely enough? No, that’s actually difficult. I’d have to think about it even if it were Suira.

“… What have you done to people that did?”
“I think I had the dungeon eat them? Those are some good memories.”

Yep, those bandits were great nourishment. Well, that’s the feeling I got when I asked Rokuko about it.
… Huh? Suira, did you just pull a bit away?

“Ah, sorry. Did I scare you?”
“N-no. It’s nothing, I’m alright.”
“If so, okay.”
“… Onee-sama. Isn’t this person dangerous? He’s killed people?”
“This about it from another angle, Michiru. This will be a weakness.”

It’s not like I really did it myself, but well, she can turn my dungeon into a weakness? Yep, as expected of Suira. There’s nothing I can add to that either.

“… Well, this much should be enough. So then, Village Chief-san, go back to your room and forget everything about us until we meet again. That we were here is a secret as well… but you will agree to having signed this contract.”
“Got it. I’ll head back to my room then.”
“That’s a good boy. I’ll give you a reward.”

When Suira said that, she brought her face close to mine—
—and, gently meeting my lips with hers, nimbly inserted her tongue.
Her soft and sweet tongue made it feel like my hips were going to give out… I somehow endured it.
My heart’s beating like a drum in my chest. I’m sure that my face is beat red too.

“…—puah. M-my… legs aren’t working.”
“Puah. Oh? How cute… For you to get like this from a simple kiss, you’re unexpectedly innocent aren’t you?”
“P-please don’t look so much. It’s embarrassing.”
“Oh…? Haven’t you done something horrible to your Partner-san? Huhu.”
“What? Rokuko has nothing to do with it…”

After that, I walked back to the inn.
Then, as she told me to, I forgot about Suira and Michiru.

 

Footnotes:
  • The original line says “noroke kashira?”, where “noroke” is like up playing/speaking fondly about your significant other. Basically, “Are you gushing about your love life right now?” I don’t think that has the same feeling as the raw, though, so I altered the line a bit. Further input from anyone familiar with it would be appreciated. Return

    Great picture.

  2. Yuu Kazuto says:

    LOL He is completely charmed! WTF Kehma.

  3. Sodemas says:

    Thx for the chapter o/
    Oh boy that picture xD represents last chapter perfectly~
    Now how will he break the charm?~

  4. Ehhhh-chan says:

    What the heck Kehma xD

    Neru save your master 😛 He’s a hopeless guy with leg fetish!

  5. Newface says:

    yep he’s definitely charmed by those heavily muscled legs

  6. adaira says:

    looks like his true weak point has been discovered

  7. A random passerby says:

    Cmon catch her legs and pin her in the missionary position

  8. Deamon says:

    He’s charmed, I wonder if the sucubi ring will turn him into a sexy girl who will charm the other sucubi

    • Dark says:

      Neru seems like the kind of person who would let things go way too far for reasons.

    • Dark says:

      Whoops, meant to reply to Ehhhh-chan. Well whatever. What I mean to say is, Neru’ll probably just watch while Kehma gets played with unless he’s in serious trouble.

      I wonder if his golem armor will kick in to defend him? He seriously did not prepare enough for this.

  9. Yuu Kazuto says:

    OI What the hell he just spilled everything out. . . . what is that succubus guard doing ? she is enjoying isn’t she ?!

    • superdbgtfan says:

      she said she can only protect him if they attack him in his dreams… and since she isn’t in the golem body she can’t break the charm.

  10. Darkness23 says:

    Lol despite all that he got charmed I wonder if he will break the charm tho
    Thanks for the chap ~

  11. Abyssal says:

    Thank you for the chapter~

    I guess his succubus ring can’t knock him out of his charmed state~

  12. hellad says:

    I had a feeling it would turn out like this when I saw the “warm feeling” in the last chapter, but… That’s too pathetic, Keima!
    At least he was wearing Neru, so he will know what happened even if he forgot.

  13. k says:

    thank for the update

  14. sodemas says:

    Thx for the chapter o/

  15. Zehd says:

    What was Neru doing!!!! He is still wearing the ring right!!!!

    This is a real disaster!!!

  16. Random Internet User (tm) says:

    Thank you kindly for the chapter!

  17. Who Cares says:

    how to get out of the contract.
    1) He’s never met them so they forged the signature
    2) They make him remember which in turns reveals that Kehma at that time was not in control so any decision he made during that time is invalid.

    • core_nnxt says:

      I don’t quite know if legal laws like that 2nd one would work in a parallel universe where legalities are fairly non-existent

      • laclongquan says:

        Legality like that is important in order to NOT get crushed by Big Sister.

        Permitting a brothel to be opened in Rokuko’s dungeon? He is going to need all the legalities he can grasp.

    • \o/ says:

      Lie detecting magic tools.

      On the other hand, he didn’t write that. His clothes golem did.

  18. Matare says:

    Aw he got charmed. Fortunately (unfortunately?) Neru was there to witness.

  19. FoxWasser says:

    ok unlessnext chapter its really told he was acting. i will abandon this novel. 3 things i hate. EASY BRAINWASH EASY NTR AND EASY MINDBREAK << those are the 3 things i hate most in any anime manga or novel. and just happened this chapter well actually its completely stupid that in first place a dungeon master its charmed but if he was really good bye everyone was a pleasure

    • Ziru says:

      Don’t worry.

    • Dark says:

      You shouldn’t get so worked up. Having big obvious buttons to press makes you easier to control. Besides, it’s not like this is going to suddenly turn into an entirely different genre of story.

    • RoflCat says:

      -He wasn’t acting

      -But it’s also keikaku doori

      In the RAW there’s actually dots used to emphasis words that was hinting at something more, which sadly Ziru didn’t seem to notice that and put similar emphasis in the translation :v

  20. IB says:

    Will Rokuko beat Kehma up?
    Did Kehma ejoyed being charmed?
    WTF is Neru doing?
    🙂

  21. Need Sleep now says:

    Thanks for the chappy, anyone remember when something similar happened in death march? I hope this mess is cleared up at the same speed. Also what if the little succubus actually did charm him, even just a little, I mean, bringing along the ring that doesn’t help him resist charm unless he falls asleep with no back up or warning, maybe she charmed him just a little. Though a Dungeon master being able to be charmed is pretty dumb.

  22. Crywolf641 says:

    Now that I think about it….Isn’t this his first kiss in this world?

    • Dark says:

      Yes. It’s actually a low level part of the story that his libido was suppressed when he became a dungeon monster. Remember the discussion about how monster eggs are rare materials since there are no monster kids in dungeons?

  23. JackSlate says:

    Neru, do something!

  24. LogLauncher says:

    Thanks for the chapter !!

  25. Mikan says:

    this whole chapter I was like oeeee kehma, oeee ring sucubus… oeeeeee

  26. Magnetic magnet says:

    Neru was, uh, active last night so is she asleep this chapter? But sasuga Kehma, he didn’t spill the important bits even under charm.

    Thanks for the chapter.

    • Dark says:

      Yeah, he managed to doge sensitive topics with enough dexterity that I wonder if he doesn’t still have some conscious or subconscious control.

  27. Tinchen says:

    so… he actually got charmed? what is our succubus eeven doing =( im disappointed…

  28. Pepperkat says:

    I was under the impression that the succubus ring was supposed to prevent that from happening? Hmm. A plot hole perhaps?

  29. Zeth says:

    Thank you Ziru!!!

  30. Oak says:

    Thanks for the chapter

  31. Barnaby says:

    Hmm… I would have expected him to have countermeasures for such an obvious occurrence… Maybe he is becoming clumsy like the old Rokuko?
