Chapter 106: Master’s Nature

 


「I’m Khorkina.」

Inside the Battleship Risha’s bridge that had returned to Ribek.

The Regret that we had picked up brightly introduced herself.

She had silver hair and brown skin…she was the perfect example of a Regret. She seemed more cheerful than Mira and even younger than Lilia.

「I’m Akito.」
「Akito-chan? Is it possible that you’re King Akito-chan?」
「chan……?」

For a moment I even wondered if we’d been acquainted beforehand.

「That’s right. I am King Akito. You are the Regret that set out with Svetlana?」
「That’s right~. Wait where is Svet-chi…is she ok?」
「Svet-chi…….don’t worry she’s……」
「Khorkina!」

As I was speaking Svetlana appeared on the bridge.

She hugged Khorkina and cried.

I had sent a message informing her that she had been found, but it seems like she couldn’t wait and came to see her.

「You’re safe! Thank goodness…..」
「I’m not ok, it really hurt~. Uh…wait? Why am I alive? I should’ve been in pieces.」

How did she die?

「And…..Svet-chi?」

Khorkina looked at Svetlana.

Within her hug, Khorkina held Svetlana’s hair and looked at it seriously.

Then she compared it to hers.

Her own silver hair, versus Svetlana’s golden hair.

「Why did Svet-chan turn back into an Eternal Slave?」

It was an obvious question.
************************************
Svetlana had calmed down and pulled away from Khorkina, then we began explaining.

I had defeated Svetlana when she turned into a slave beast. After that, she turned back into an Eternal Slave and we still didn’t know the reason.

「So that’s what happened.」
「Your reaction is pretty weak.」
「Leaving that aside Sve-chan, do you have the letter?」
「No, I don’t.」

Svetlana answered now that she had calmed herself.

「I was still carrying it with me until I was killed, but when I woke up it was gone.」

Well that’s obvious, you turned into a monkey.

There’s no way a monkey would continue carrying it around.

It was probably abandoned right where she transformed.

「I got it. I can speak about the letter. Before that can I talk with you a bit?」

She asked me.

「Yeah if it’s just a few questions.」

At least until I get that letter.

Depending on what it is I’ll need to prepare, getting some information in advance isn’t a bad thing.

Even on Earth diplomatic messages were a ceremony in a certain sense. Knowing the content beforehand was helpful for the messenger and receiver.

That was obvious. The sender would have their pride injured if the message was to be refused, and the accepting side wouldn’t want to accept something strange with difficult implications.

Previous communication was helpful, saying “Ok I’m sending it” “Ok I’m receiving it” was important.

「Ok what is it?」
「Before that I wanted to talk with Svet-chi.」
「Uh」

Svetlana started.

It seems like she’s nervous——no she’s afraid?

Thinking of her usual personality it was a strange reaction.

「Svetlana what’s wrong?」
「Akito -chan is popular with slaves right?」
「Yeah, five of them.」
「All of them Eternal Slaves?」
「Yeah.」
「A~maz~ing!」

Khorkina’s eyes suddenly shone.

It didn’t seem sarcastic or joking, she was truly thinking it was amazing.

「Is it really?」
「Un! After all, you need to prepare lots of jobs for Eternal slaves to do right?」
「…….ah, I see.」

I somehow understood.

Eternal Slaves desire orders from their Masters and feel that collapsing from overwork was a happy thing.

「Normally someone wouldn’t be that popular. Usually it’s limited to one Eternal Slave at most.」
「That’s why we…..were unable to find a Master and became Regrets.」
「I see.」

Even now, the only other Master I had known was Seiya who only had a single slave.

Even skilled Yuria who had come from Kazan, didn’t choose a Master and eventually ended up over here.

「Having 5 is insanely amazing. It’s unheard of~.」
「I’m glad that you think so. And, what does that have to do with Svetlana?」
「Svet-chi should become Akito-chan’s slave~」

Khorkina said and Svetlana started once again.

「Does that have something to do with the letter’s contents?」
「Uh-uh, nothing at all.」
「Then?」
「After all, Svet-chi turned back into an Eternal Slave. I don’t know why, but it means she can’t come back to the country.」
「Huh?」

Can it be?

I looked at Svetlana and she timidly nodded.

「Eternal Slaves can’t enter the Country of the Regrets.」
「……is that a rule?」
「It is a law.」

It’s sounding more depressing.

So since she turned back into an Eternal Slave she’s been banished?

I looked at her and she averted her eyes.

There wasn’t a reason to…but I felt responsible.

I thought for a bit, and nodde.

「Ok then, you shall be my slave, however…
「However?」

Khorkina tilted her head in confusion.

「There are conditions to being my slave. Working your hardest is a given, I will place a choker on you, and your child shall stay by my side as well. Are you ok with that?」

I said and both of them looked surprised.

「Wh-why is that…」
「No good?」
「No no no!」

Svetlana denied it with a loud voice.

「But, why is that…」
「Could it be that you’ve talked to your other slaves about this?」
「Yeah.」

I nodded.

It was Lilia at first, but it was a fact.

「Amazing~, congrats Svet-chi~ you got the best Master!」
「Y-yeah.」

Svetlana blushed.

She glanced at me furtively with emotion-filled eyes.

「Explain what the big deal is…I don’t get it.」
「Being together as Mother and Daughter under one Master is an Eternal Slave’s dream. Normally they won’t talk about it because a normal Master would draw back.」
「Draw back?」
「As in draw back from the concept.」

……..why?

They’re such cute and lovable little things though?

I can’t think of a reaction other than happiness if I could have their daughters work with me too.

Why would they draw back?

I don’t get it.

「Congratulations Svet-chi!」

I don’t get it, but it doesn’t really matter as long as they’re happy.

  1. Thank you very much

    • I HOPE SHE S THE ONE TO KILL THAT LOSER

      i se the future 100 slave girls

      • Irrelevant but what is your name targeted at?

      • 100? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no…. My good sir! You are making quite the low prediction. With how things are, we can expect that demograph to reach easily a thousand, and most likely even more!

  2. I have feeling there will be something unpleasant regarding the whole “child & mother serving same master” thing revealed in the future….

    • I think it is far simpler:
      “Serving the master” also includes “night services”.
      And an eternal slave will only devote herself to her master (maybe it is even part of their genes as such only the master can get them pregnant).
      So that means the father of an eternal slaves child is always the master.
      Therefore “serving the same master as mother and child” includes that the master will receive “night services” from his own child a.k.a. incest.
      And that would be something that usually all people would decline due to their morals (and any scientifically educated person also for reasons to avoid genetical defects from incest).

      That is my guess why it is so rare for masters to accept that situation.

      • In addition to that there is also some other issue that makes most masters only able to handle a single slave. Perhaps they ask for a lot and a normal Medieval – almost Stone Age with how they have to exist hunter style- era dude simply does not have enough work to give them. Alt there may be some sort of drain on telling one to do things that Akito somehow dodges because goddess’s will.

        Then add a second one, which also eternally bonds with you including the whole love side effect, which you now need to also order around hard like the first one or they get depressed, never mind her being your daughter.

    • They, dunt remember which of them, explained that when they want to have a child find a man to mate, that’s how it usually is. So what you are implying might be a rare happening since most master won’t have kids with their slaves, cuz of the incest thing, specially since it seems the slaves kids are always slaves.

  3. Thanks for the new chapter!

  4. I think it’s because the master’s daughter.. and while “I’ll marry daddy” is cute as a kid and dad’s love It, they wouldn’t really want to mate with their own daughters…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

  5. Thanks for the chapter!

  6. Yeah I have to agree with Xias, the eternal slaves only have one master and his daughters from the slaves will be his slaves and to give them the ultimate happiness would require him to have sexual relations and children with them as well and with their children as well probably. This is all dependent on his life span. If he ends up living a very long life because of magical power then this trend can go on with his great, great, great, great grandchildren (aka daughters) or longer.

    Now I wonder if the children born from the eternal slaves will be slaves like they said, being that he is from another world and has powers no one else has (supposedly). These factors could change what kind of children are born from them. A new race or actual start of true elves maybe.

  7. Personally… I’m so very glad I don’t those uselessly annoying moral chains holding me back.

    If oyakodon’s the dream, then I say give it to them.
    Plus, wh at affects humans may not even be an issue for Eternal Slaves.

    1. They’re all female. Incest or not, they are always born girls… kind of a flag right there that they have plenty of gene differences to totally exclude a gender.
    2. The child, by inference, is always born an Eternal Slave to an Eternal Slave mother. This suggest some mighty powerful DN A rewriting on their part… assuming that’s even an issue.
    3. It’s their culture and natural predisposition, and who the hell am I to judge another race’s rules? They wanna work till they pass out? Let them. They wanna offer up their kids to you? Sure, why not? I’m not turning that down. Fuck useless morals.
    4. It’s another world. Earth logic might only be useless baggage and only applies on Earth unless proven otherwise beyond a shadow of a doubt.
    6. Polygamy is also grnerally frowned upon in the present day, yet Akito has banged dozens of girls already who want his kids and to be his wives/women… I don’t think Eternal Slaves keeping it in the family is gonna be any more of a problem here. Morals and ethics are subjective while genetics are only a problem if it becomes a problem.

    Akito…bang em all! Jealousy aside, I shall approve!

  8. Thanks for the treat.

  9. Technically not related to the chapter, but I’m wondering about Akiit’s 5th slave (Raisa) what power does she grant when in the Eternal Slave (sword).

    all the other comments here are all focused on rationalising the incest route but isn’t the problem merely a lack of orders?

    If one slave is enough for most masters then that essentially means according to this chapter, those masters don’t have more than one slaves work for them. So if you suddenly added another slave, their daughter, she would eventually turn into a regret without orders.

    This is why most masters would draw back from the concept of having both mother and child by their side, all masters know they don’t have enough orders to give for two slaves in the first place and anyone of them that loves slaves, like Akito does, would want for their happiness as well, like Akito does. As we have already established, in order for the master to grant that happiness he would have to give out orders for the slaves.

    Slaves = orders, no orders, not a slave, daughter becomes regret.

    • Well, no. I do think the “incest issue” is actually a concern for most “rational” (lol) ppl.

      That said, you bring up a good point. Logistically, what’s even the point of more slaves than you need? That said, Eternal Slaves “choose” their Masters which… tbh, may be, and likely is, a separate issue from the mother/daughter combi here… the issue of becoming a Regret.

      But, it’s another matter for someone like Akito who, by rights, is a woefully understaffed King to a still nascent state. Think about it this way…For him… it’s practically free labor ready and willing where all he needs to do is love them… and this guy’s love is pretty… generous and expansive. For them… they can happily work till they’re half dead and smiling the whole time, can offer him their daughters, and be loved with almost equal care to their love.

      Akito is trying to rebuild the world = never enough Eternal Slaves = they will NEVER run out of orders = everyone wins, even if he takes on a dozen more. Guy already proved:
      1. Harem MC stamina
      2. He’s not hung up about taking their daughters.
      3. He’s understaffed.
      4. Everybody knows he’s not gonna say no to more Eternal Slaves.
      5. A country full of Regrets just SCREAMS conquest in the near future… which, he won’t turn down.

  11. Thanks for the Chapter!

    Well, bottomline fellas?
    It’ll be an exciting new chapter to look forward to! 😈

  12. Oyakosons in the future jujujujuuu

  13. Thanks for the chapter!!
