Chapter 77: Spoils of War

 


Royal Capital Ribek, King’s Palace.

I had just returned when Mira came to greet me.

「Welcome home Master!」
「I’m back. How have things been since I’ve been gone?」
「Umm…..things have been going well. Yuria has been doing this and that…it feels like business as usual.」
「I see. Good job.」

I said and took out a medal for her that I’d prepared beforehand.

I had prepared three of them and handed one to Mira.

「It’s a reward.」
「Thank you very much!」

—Magic has been charged by 10,000—

「Where are Yuria and Lilia?」
「Yuria is in Belmi and Lilia is in Bisk.」
「I see. Then give these to them when they return.」

I handed her the medals.

「Hey Master?」
「Hm?」

I looked at her. She looked unusually serious.

「What’s wrong?」
「Umm….about that girl…」
「That girl?」
「The other Eternal Slave girl…」
「Oh, Seiya’s slave? What happened?」
「She’s fallen ill.」
「…..what?」
***************************************
A little ways from Ribek was a peaceful area.

There was a residence there. It resembled the manor I once lived in.

I had let Seiya’s slave live there.

We had determined that we would treat her as a guest so we allowed her to live in the manor like this.

I entered the building and walked down the hallway.

I walked straight to the bedroom and entered.

「…………」

There she lay. She was on top of the bed staring blankly out the window.

I was honestly surprised, she was worse off than what Mira had said.

She seemed bedridden.

Her cheeks were hollow and her eyes were empty.

If it weren’t for the slight tremors of her body, I would’ve mistaken her for a wax doll.

「…….hey.」

I called out and she finally turned to look at me. At least now it seemed like she was alive.

Honestly she didn’t seem to be ill with anything I knew of.

I walked towards her and spoke.

「How are you?」
「I’m alright……….」

I got a little irritated…in what way are you alright?

No matter how you look at it, this is the opposite of alright.

I was exasperated, but I held it in.

「I see. This is a visitation gift.」

I held out a shell that we collected from our trip to the sea.

My slaves receive the medals and my guests get shells I picked up from the sea.
That was the distinction.

「….thank you.」

She said in a voice like a mosquito.

I couldn’t feel any emotion from her. Just that 「thank you」 was irritating in how fake it was.

She didn’t accept the shell.

It just sat there on the bed.

「I was surprised when I heard from Mira…what happened?」
「Nothing much….I’m fine…」
「…….you haven’t found Seiya yet…」

She twitched.

「We’ve been searching but haven’t been able to find him…and yet you wish to continue…」
「Yes….」

She said as she turned her face away.

She was painful to look at.

How should I say…….I couldn’t feel any will to live from her.

As I looked around uncomfortably, the shell entered my sight.

The gift I’d brought for my guest.

It was something I’d given for a guest…..not a slave.

「I may have been mistaken….」
「……eh?」

She looked at me, expressionless as always.

I grabbed her hand and pulled her to her feet.

「Kya!」

She fell from the bed onto her butt.

It seems that she didn’t have the strength to stand properly.

Even so I kept pulling her up to stand.

「Wh-what are you……..」
「I was wrong.」

I repeated my words once more.

That’s right…

I was wrong.

「My treatment of you was incorrect.」
「My…treatment?」
「That’s right. You are an Eternal Slave, a race that was born to serve by your nature. You will not flourish under these circumstances…」
「……….」
「And so, I will have you work——-from now on.」
「F-from now on?」

She seemed surprised at my sudden change.

「That’s right, you have a problem?」
「A problem…that’s——-」
「Even if you do I don’t care.」

I stopped her from speaking.

How should I put it….I felt this method was correct.

Eternal Slave.

She wanted to be a slave so I should treat her as she wishes.

「But I am…….Seiya-sama’s slave…」
「I don’t care.」
「Ehhhh?」
「Now that I think about it…there was no need to hold back. I surpass him and I defeated him…you are my spoils of war. I didn’t have to think of returning you…you should’ve been mine from the start.」
「………」

She seemed completely dumbfounded.

She couldn’t seem to speak and just stared at me spacing out.

「R-really?」
「Hm?」
「Can I…….work?」
「………」

I didn’t say a word and instead pinched her cheek and pulled.

「I, ihyaiihihai…」
「What are you acting all slow for…….」

I said while pulling her cheek and staring into her eyes…

「….get working.」

A moment later…..she began to smile.
PICTURE

It was the first time I’d seen her smile.

—Magic has been charged by 900—

It was still a little stiff……but it was a smile nonetheless.

  1. Thanks for the chapter XD

  2. Finally! Took you long enough Akito.
    Thanks for the Chapter!

    • NTR-ted! Akito is right- she is his spoils of war. And: “Who does not work- do not eat!”

      • Justice NTR’ed. Normally despise NTR but this, this is acceptable.

      • How is this ntr? ntr requires the other party stolen from to actually care

      • My thoughts exactly, NTR is basically stealing a love interest. In this case there is no love and she was already abandoned…so its not even stealing anymore.

      • true, so was can we call it?

      • Its netori my dudes

      • “netori
        Cuckolding someone. The protagonist forces a love interest who is already in a relationship with a third party into a physical relationship, and the love interest comes to like it over time, thus either cheating or breaking up with their original partner.”
        This ain’t netori either he only saw her as a punching bag of magic charging

      • That ntr with love and Justice right? Like when asshole gets his girl stolen by a beta or bullied kid?

  3. The HNNGGS in this chapter…Too much for me

  4. Yay, thanks for the treat.

  5. FINALLY!!!!!!

    …I’m…glad!

    That poor girl deserved WAY better than that asshat!
    Amito, I approve!

  6. Thanks for the chapter!!

  7. Thanks for the chapter

    Does that mean, Seiya also magic also charged? Since many chapters ago, people tortured Seiya’s slave and his magic charged and he was able to break out of prison. Now that his slave is happy because of Akito, will Seiya’s magic also charged?

    • Even if it does charge his magic, he’ll probably just think it was because she died since he refuses to acknowledge any method to gain charge other than mistreating his slaves.

    • Let’s just hole the asshole dosent try to get her back now that his magic got suddenly charged…what am I saying, I hope he tries to get her so akito can fucking muder him

    • Thanks for the chapter.

      Akito once said, that his power comes from slaves smiles and Seiya’s from tears and sorrow. Either that or her ownership was now officially transferred to Akito. Seiya shouldn’t get any magic recharge. No slave means no magic and without it, he is just a nobody.

  8. Thanks for the chapter!

  9. Thanks for the new chapter! At least he’s taking steps to get her away from thinking about Seiya.

  10. thx for chpter <3

  11. Yes, he had cruelly treated an Eternal Slave like a guest denying her any life sustaining orders to work.
    At least he’s starting to understand they aren’t just cute cosplaying humans.
    Thanks for the chapter

  13. Thanks for doing this chapter and posting!🤓

  14. is this.. ntr enough?

  15. Hahaha NTRing completed lol
    Ty for the chapter^^

  16. Its about damn time…. Took him long enough..

    ~Thanks for the chapter

  17. It was resolved as soon as he willed it to be. The problem lied in the fact that he did not believe that she was his slave. Thus, she was not. But now that he has “accepted” her, or at least included her in “this is mine”, she is now under his master-ship.
