AN: This time there is a description of violence, so please be careful if you are not good at it.
“We will hold a tea ceremony as a welcome party for Mizuki-sama. I’m grateful for your participation.”
The moment I heard this dialogue, I was the only person who felt that the room temperature had suddenly dropped.
“Oh, when is that?”
Fufu…Isn’t it nice?
You may be pasting a smile on your face, but you’re still blowing a blizzard in your mind, right?
It wasn’t my imagination that the hand fan was squeezed tightly.
I’m in the setting of being guarded by Irfena, right?
I guess it’s safe to assume that your life is not worth a call from a lowly person…….?
Even the face is twisted at the name of the “order” called “invitation” suddenly handed down to you.
I’m sure it’s a good idea for you to be able to get your hands on some of these things.
But I am not gentle enough to allow that to happen.
I stopped the handmaid who was about to leave the room, thinking her business was done.
She smiled and said that I would surely be able to find my way around on this visit.
“Your master called me. It’s only natural that you should show me around, isn’t it?”
Did you just click your tongue? Can you hear me tapping? You can’t show it on your face if it’s too much trouble.
But you know what?
You’re even more of a failure than that.
“You are not so smart…”
“Excuse me, is there something that was not pleasing to you?”
“You don’t know, that’s why I say ‘stupid’.”
The handmaid frowns at me as I giggle.
Did I say that “It was your action that caused me to come here”?
As long as I said this in front of the guards personally sent to the king, I’m as good as being held accountable.
I must deny it, or else there will be terrible consequences.
Well, I’m not going to tell you.
“Shall we go now?”
Let’s start with the first game.
So, what happens now?
“Rudolf! It seems like I called you as soon as possible.”
“Oh, I’ll go with you, then.”
I won’t forget to call Rudolph with a telepathic message.
You’ll need it this time, right?
Wow, that’s a pretty obvious figure of mumbo jumbo!
When I arrived at the tea party, I immediately thought that.
“It’s a pleasure to welcome you, Mizuki-sama. Please have a seat.”
A woman with a bright smile and heavy makeup spins token words.
Are those people giggling and laughing her lackeys?
Well, I’m not supposed to be welcomed in this state, right?
There are no seats, how do I sit?
There’s one big table with all the people in the side rooms sitting on chairs.
There is no place for me to sit. I wonder if they intentionally wanted to do this, these guys.
Well, it makes more sense for me to observe from here.
At first glance, there are four main “enemies”.
One of them is a blonde who is probably the mastermind of this event. This is probably a stupid boasting a family name.
The second person has a calm atmosphere with chestnut hair.
The third person is a young person with red hair and green eyes.
These two do not show any outrageous hostility, and are keeping a way out for themselves.
Finally, the last one is with silver hair and a gentle vibe.
I’m somewhat curious about them, but I may look like someone suspicious if I try to enquire too much.
“I’d like to ask you a few questions first.”
She smiled and said she was not the one behind all this. But she responded dubiously when I approached the organizer.
“Yes, what is it?”
“Is the maid sent to my room the one who serves you personally?”
“No. She’s the one who works at this Palace. She’s in charge of everything around me…”
“Is that so.”
At those words, my smile faded and yelled at the maid who was near the table
I yelled and slapped her with the fan I had in my hands- even if it’s reinforced , it was just an iron fan with its original weight.
She crashed against the table and rolled around unceremoniously, shattering the tea utensils.
Ah, it doesn’t matter if the debris hurt the concubines. Why you ask?
Because this time they are also guilty.
“I….what did I do……”
“What did you do? Do you even understand what you have done?”
I turn my gaze along with my magic power to the protesting attendant with a broken tooth, a shattered jawbone and a bloody face.
This is the Demon Lord’s direct ‘intimidation’! Even if it wasn’t as powerful as that man, it was enough to frighten them.
In fact, the concubines that tried to voice their condemnation turned pale and fell silent.
“You are the maid of this palace but the Lord who you should serve is His Majesty. If such a stupid farce were to take place, it should be stopped! It sounds like you’re being very uptight about your attitude and words earlier.”
“Waa…I’m Isabella-sama’s ”
“What the hell is that supposed to mean? I am the Guardian of the ‘nation’ called Irfena. What if a servant of King Zebrest put up such an attitude against me?”
It seems that this Lady Isabella and her attendants still didn’t understand the situation. But some of the concubines noticed the situation and their faces turned blue.
It’s late, too late!
They can’t wash their hands off this matter since the moment they participated this time.
“Do you think a nobleman is better than a nation? Or do you think Irfena is inferior to Miss Isabella’s family?”
“And that responsibility must be borne by King Rudolf. Of course, I’m asking you to deal with it in a way that Irfena would accept.”
“That’s right. They did something ridiculous.”
I turn and bow at the sound of a man who he joins the scene.
Even under guardianship, there is no such thing as standing in front of the highest authority.
This is common knowledge of aristocrats.
So why are you sitting still, you ladies? What are you waiting for?
“Sorry to disturb you. Please forgive me for the disturbance.”
“No, in this situation, you are more correct. Rather, I must apologize for being rude to you.”
“I would like the words to be directed to Irfena. I do not want to lose a friendly nation.”
“I see… thanks.”
[“Well done! Nice timing for my appearance! “]
[“Welcome! Welcome to the scene of carnage!”]
The atmosphere on the surface was very serious but we are exchanging cheerful telepathic messages.
Ah, the Knights of the escort quietly raised their thumbs and said, “Good job!”.
The expression on their face is somber, but they’re good at it.
“There’s no one in the palace that can give ‘orders’ to Mizuki, is there?”
“Please wait! I have given no orders!”
“Shut up. Calling me without listening to my schedule? And harassment? Being a daughter of Duke doesn’t give you an excuse to do such things.”
Miss Isabella opens her mouth, desperately trying to excuse herself, but Rudolph cuts her off quickly.
No, Miss Isabella? You’re the one who forgot what you had to do before that.
You don’t even know it, so I’ll add one of those harassment things too.
“I wouldn’t want to harass her, Your Majesty.”
I smiled and leaned closer to Rudolph.
In addition, I requested Rudolph’s help with a telepathic message.
[“Yup. Help me on that”]
[“Haha! Leave it to me”]
“The King can’t be in the same class as the woman who was just pressed against by the one who wanted him. She has no need for a seat at the table.”
“That’s right, I’ve never been together with them.”
“Fufu, no one is pregnant. It’s best that no blood is mixed in with these filthy ‘bitches’.”
“No one could argue with the way you see it, Master Mage of Irfena.”
The concubines expressions changed at those words.
Silly thing to do, isn’t it? Now you guys can’t say, ‘I’m going to have a king’s baby’.
A magician can tell if there’s a foreign object in the human body. Plus, all the concubines are here in this place, and there aren’t any who are pregnant with a child.
“I’m a mage, so I can’t just keep going… you have to accept this much.”
I concentrate the magical power by directing my eyes toward the table.
Since the aim is at the chair legs and wood, it can be easily destroyed.
The bell on the hair ornament makes a clear sound when my eyes squint and my neck tilts slightly.
An explosive sound echoes at the same time.
The concubines are slow to react and look dumbfounded for a moment.
The legs of the chair popped at the same time as the bell. The girls here do not have time to know that and their bodies fall to the floor. (TN: Superman got isekaied and gender bended after being killed by Batman)
The concubines who endured the pain of getting hit. Oh, and some of them are staring at me!
Well, it probably hurts. It’s a plain harassment.
And this time, the real target is Miss Isabella and the palace maid servants of the Inner Palace.
“Is this all right?”
“Yeah, my personal agenda is done. The rest is between our countries and I won’t interfere.”
Rudolf, who nodded with a mysterious face at my words that implicitly smelled “a wish to the devil”, is also a demon.
Huh, Miss Isabella and her parents’ home are over.
The Demon King is a patriot, and there’s no way she can get away with disgracing his country for free.
Rudolf also intends to pile further crimes with the cause of “for the country”.
“Your Majesty… please listen to me!”
Miss Isabella, who seems to be recovered, rushes to Rudolf to cling to him.
Naturally, the Knights acted to block Rudolf and thrust their swords at her.
However, Rudolf stopped the escort knights from trying to move and told me, “Go!” to take control of the situation.
……I am being treated as a weapon, It seems that you want me to hurt them badly.
Well, when you’re a Knight. It’s not like you can beat them to death.
Accepting all the expectations of my friend, I stood in front of Rudolph and gave a shout to Miss Isabella.
“Step back, you rude person!”
“Well… you’re the kind of person who says that!”
I wondered if she was trying to yell at me.
But it’s faster for me to hurt her than saying any words.
Zaaa… The next moment there was a dull sound.
“Gah… aaa! Ah, my face…”
The concubines in the room gasped for breath.
It was because Isabella’s face was torn in an instant.
As a matter of fact, the injury isn’t that deep. It’s a trick that turned her proud face bloody.
However, those who won’t see blood normally are afraid that their important “faces” will be destroyed.
………If they wipe the blood off, you’ll know it’s a scratch. And there’s a healing magic too.
For the time being, let’s take a shot at them before they notice.
“Don’t you care? This person is the Zebrest Leader. Looking at the escort Knights, I can understand what they were feeling.”
The Knights are all around Rudolf, with the exception of Sail, who is waiting beside me.
The implications of this are obvious. In other words, it’s ‘enemy’.
Sail has been at my side from the beginning, allowing me to pull out my sword at any time, so he must have wanted to beat them off if they came close to me.
General, you’re surprisingly short-tempered.
Before that, I think it’s okay to see the slaughter scene in front of me.
“Even though you’re concubines, you shouldn’t show rudeness in serving the King and Queen. And you’ve done so much to make them see it as an enemy, haven’t you?”
“Yeah! We love the King!”
“Oh, is it not true that giving aphrodisiacs also belongs to ‘harm’? I’m sure there are a number of people out there who know what to do with sleeping pills as well.”
When I approach Isabella, who has crouched down with her face covered with both hands, I strike her hands with a fan and turn her face.
Oh, splatter with good blood!
“What you have done is an insult to the King. Who do you think you are? You belong to the King.”
“Oh, your proud parents are just as guilty. They have been educating and even cooperating with you in that way.”
The girls don’t understand that this is a grave mistake.
My role is the destruction of the Inner Palace, but Rudolph is the one who has all of the final decision-making authority for it.
It’s because the King is being licked by the noblemen, so the plan is to improve that as well.
If there’s enough evidence based on what happened against me, it’s enough to destroy the whole house.
Let’s do it with a snap, King! The idiots who treated you like you were incompetent should be sanctioned now!
“Mizuki, what do you think? They’ re all subject to punishment, though.”
“Hmm, this time the punishment will be Mistress Isabella, her family’s house and the palace maidservants, if that’s okay with you. Because…..”
I turn to the concubines with a smile.
With a plop, a drop of blood fell from the fan and stained on the floor.
It’s a performance, this. A small container clenched together with the fan contains blood glue, a trick that comes out when you push it like an eye drop.
It’s one of the items that makes the Black Knight production so terrifying.
“A mage would not leave a sold-out fight unattended. I want to respond to the declaration of war received from everyone.”
“Well, if they lose, the whole family will be held responsible.”
“Of course! They’ve done whatever they wanted with the help of their families.”
“… Well, this farce is over. Let’s leave it to the knights. Now that we’re out of here, can we go to our rooms?”
“You’re very welcome, Your Majesty.”
I leave the room with Rudolph, leaving the concubines still looking pale.
It’s a fine technique to have my hands around my waist.
All that ‘You’re already sinners, you’ll be punished, so prepare yourselves.’ If I threaten them, they’ll either say they’re going to leave the Inner Palace themselves, or they’ll set it up.
The reason I didn’t let it end like this is because my role is the destruction of the Inner Palace, there is no option to apologize and get it over with in the first place!
At the very least, if you don’t rid yourself of your foolishness and hunt down to the point of dying, you will not be in balance with the emotional distress that Rudolf and others suffered.
Miss Isabella and the maids were executed, and the Duke of Louvent was crushed.
It seems that they were doing some pretty bad things, and this is because they wanted to do it before their other misdeeds were exposed.
Well, as long as it’s a historical lineage, I don’t want to crush it because it’s covered in ugly rumors..
I’m sure Rudolph would also like to avoid doing something that would bring down the value of the country.
I’m sure that the evidence of wrongdoing is proof that the Demon King and his henchmen are working behind the scenes, but you can’t make smoke without fire, right?
The high-quality tea leaves from the minister, who have been laborious, have deepened my friendship with the Knights, so my method is not wrong.
Yes, two days after the commotion, I received a notice from the Demon King, ‘It was an interesting spectacle. Do more, Demon Lord recommended (translation)’ to the extent that I received a letter from him.
Demon King-sama….you were enjoying observing us!?
