“Well, lets at once start to prepare for the coming battles.”
I see men and women of all ages stand up in my line of sight, Oulu nodded. That group
was scattered by sex as well age, also within the group they seemed to have gone and armed themselves with swords, pieces of wood, and farming tools.
Its a very common thing to do only ‘Everybody will end up as a corpse’.
With the use of Oulu magic the corpse temporarily gained the breath in life, they are the so-called Living Dead
“You , you really do not trust the others …… ”
Lil mutters and I look around in the surrounding. The Gargoyle according to the contract is forced to have complete obedience to Oulu. It faithfully does just what it was commanded to do and cannot do anything unless it is given an command.
When I contracted with the devil who is lower than intermediate, it was a common kind of contract. In the first place there bodies do not even exist. Its just a puppet that runs off Oulu`s magic powers.
The only free will there is limited to what was stated in the contract which allows Lil to do some move extent do some things. When there would be anything for the thorough correspondence in the past, Lil guessed, but does not inquire for it.
Oulu did not consider it. This is because there was an article “not to inquire into a past” within the contract.
“Well then, lets go to the next village.”
Did he not heard Lil’s muttering or did he heard but ignored it? Oulu said that without answering to the muttering.
“Next? Are we not done with assaulting villages?”
This village’s food and valuables, they can only carry [with them] what the dead can hold each. Although it wasn’t such a wealthy village, since winter was coming it was a large amount. Lil can eat, although she doesn’t need to, and the quantity was more than enough for Oulu.
“No, from now on it’s just putting a performance.”
Oulu shows a grinning smile causing Lil to put her hand on her forehead. I have only been associated with Oulu for a day and i know when he shows that smile i know what he thinking about is not good.
Along with a characteristic thundering sound as if space itself had exploded, lightning scorched the earth. weather was clear, without a single cloud in the sky. The lightning that fell when, let alone thundering, it wasn’t even raining, had been due to Oulu’s magic.
Although it consumes a lot of magical power, the power is not so high in the attack and its range is too narrowly. It is enough to kill a creature, but against an inanimate object such as a stone and the rocks it is almost ineffective. It was such inconvenient magic, but was considerably effective art of merely intimidate an opponent.
Surprised by the sudden thuder, the villagers came out of their houses. What they found then was a suspicious man wrapped in a pitch black robe, a scantily clad woman and a bloody horde [blood-splattered army]. そこで目の当たりにしたのは、真っ黒なローブに身を包んだ怪しい男と、申し訳程度の衣装に身を包んだ女、そして、血だらけの軍勢だった。
“Hear me. I am the Evil Sorcerer Oulu.”(Evil Magician Oulu)
“I’ve been wondering for a while, but how come you call yourself an Evil Sorcerer?”
“Shut up. It’s alright since it’s easier to understand this way.”
-Of course, he replied in whispers to Lil’s retorting whisper.
“Today i came to you to propose an ‘Deal’.”
For now, Oulu proceeded with his speech addressing to the eldest of the men who was right before him.
“And, the deal is…?”
Compared with the village from before, this one was quite indecisive. It may be also because there’s no one similar to last village’s chief, but it was mainly the presence of the undead ready in wait behind Oulu.
“Okay. Once a month i want you to give me food and once a year i want a beautifully pure maiden. And if you do this i will give you all my blessings. As for the production of crops you will no longer get bad harvest, and you won’t be threatened by wolves, goblins and thieves.
Lil has a face full of surprise, but I ignore it.
“That…if we…, don`t accept the deal…?
At the villager’s timid question, Oulu lightly raised his hand. With that signal, the corpses behind him took several steps forward.
“Those people are the fools who did not the deal.”
Seeing among them “the thing that once was the village chief”‘s face, some of the villagers raised a voice.
“That old man used to be a celebrity.”
“He must have had exceptional skills to make a village this size. It probably is.”
Oulu answered the mutter of Lil
“If you opposse me, what awaits you is not something as lukewarm as death. ――It’s truly eternal [eternal without bounds] suffering.
However, if you accept my deal, you’ll get a century of good harvests. From handing food, a bountiful harvest. From handing a girl, I promise you the safety of many. Well then, is your chief a wise person? Or is him a foolish one?”
The villagers exchanged glances, but it seems that the answer was as good as set.
There wasn’t much of a dispute, they all vowed allegiance to Oulu.
““Very well. in that case, erect an altar in the center of the village and leave on it offerings the first of each month. The offerings will be one cow, two pigs and five chicken. From the crops, half of what has been harvested that month of each produce.
Likewise, the girl must wait on the altar the first day of the Dragon month. Preferably, the girl must be a beautiful, chast virgin who has known no man.”
“What a trifle…”
Softly muttered Lil, but she was once again ignored.
Afterwards, after placing the gargoyle in the center of the village to guard and monitor it, casting a spell for an abundant harvest and leaving some simple indications on how to build the altar, Oulu left the village along with Lil and the dead.
“Phew… Returning here sure calms me down.”
They took the next several days, and went over to some other villages in the vicinity, Oulu ecame back to the dungeon after making a similar contract with them.
In the end, without any resistance besides that of the first village, contracts were made with a total of 6 villages.
Some of the villages are a little far away, but there’s no problem if he uses teleporting magic with the Dungeon’s Core magic power. The altars the villagers had to make also have teleportation magic arrays.
In a room that had some furniture which was brought from the destroyed villages became a fairly calm space where Oulu was submerged comfortably on a sofa.
“Still, it was a bit surprising. I believed that you’ll surely destroy and pillage all of them. Instead, you handed out magic power and secured their lifestyles.”
Actually, it was not like I’ll feel any remorse if I do all that, but it’s really nice of Lil to be worried to some extent about the villagers.
Even though a demon is said to, to be reincarnation of destruction and slaughter of the innocent that is not necessarily true.
If I were to do that, no matter how many villages, it won’t be enough. it’s the same as humans taking care of livestock. If they can’t keep on living because they are starving to death, we too won’t get a profit.”
“Aah, now I get it.”
The same as livestock, that explanation struck home with Lil. To a devil, human look exactly like that. As they are beings they could profit of, they are reluctant to recklessly kill them; they feel some resistance to kill those who don’t oppose them, but they don’t hesitate to kill those who bare their fangs against them.
“Oulu, you really are eviler than a demon.”
“….I will take that as a compliment”
Oulu somewhat shows an face of disappointed, and then raises his waist from the sofa and moves towards a bed.
“We still have a pile of work to do but at least one work is done for now. For today we will take a day off…..Come.”
“Didn’t you say ‘there’s no need for now’? Besides, a young girl should be coming soon.”
Lil approaches the bed while saying so because she must obey the order.
You still have not yet yield?… Oulu signs inwardly but does not show it.
“The first girl will come in two weeks. Well, it’s not like I asked for virgins just to sleep with them.”
Forcibly pulling her arm while lying on the bed, Oulu caught Lil in his arms.
He made contracts with 6 villages and for each he shifted the month they had to offer a girl, so he’ll get a girl once every two months.
“The magic power you have accumulated is still not enough, and I too have something ‘accumulated.
Besides… There’s no way a human exist who feels better to lay with than you succubus who exist solely for sex.”
While looking at Oulu is grinning Lil realized she was not accustomed to his lip service coming from his mouth.
Even if you call it lip service, it’s true, but being said each and every thing that was better left unsaid was to Lil a bit of a disgrace.
“In addition, whether there is a small amount of magical power that is poured into your body it would still help increase your magic capacity. After all your magic capacity in itself is far wide different as compared with humans. You should be prepared because from now on we will be doing this frequent, partner.”
Pushing Lil down while ticklishly whispering to her ear, Oulu sighed again and again in his heart.
I truly have chosen a totally troublesome succubus(demon) as a partner.
While in embrace Oulu did not notice, that Lil also had a similar expression.
