Chapter 89: Two Cards

 


Capital Ribek.

Inside the Palace, Raisa was in front of me.

「You called for me Master?」
「Yeah, I have something for you.」
「For me?」
「It’s this.」

I pointed to the choker that I’d made with Mira and Lilia.

It was a one off for Raisa, a choker with a violet gem in it.

I held it out before her eyes.

「This is…….the same as the others?」
「That’s right. I’m giving it to you.」
「——」

Raisa gasped seeming breathless.

She held onto her mouth with her hands as tears started welling up in her eyes.

It goes without saying, they were tears of happiness.

If she was just a normal slave, I’d give it to her now…but for her there is a necessary process.

「However, I have two conditions.」
「Wh-what is it?」

Raisa latched on.

「One, I will take in your children as well.」
「Is that really ok!?」

She looked even happier.

It was something Eternal Slaves desired, it seems she was not an exception.

「Really, how is it?」
「Of course! Please do so!」

She was so enthusiastic that I would’ve died if she was cursing me.

This was what I expected when I asked.

I have begun taking their natures into consideration.

And that’s why I attached this second——this final condition at the end.

「Second, you must completely cut ties with Seiya.」
「——」

She was once again speechless, but for a different reason.

Her previous Master Seiya…to completely turn her back on him, betray him, and become mine.

This I was unsure of.

I couldn’t understand the confusion she would be going through between her former Master, Seiya and her current Master…me.

Raisa looked at me, eyes wide.

I waited.

I didn’t press her for an answer, I just stood there with her choker.

This was an answer I didn’t want to pressure her into, I wanted an answer from her heart.

So I waited.

After a moment that seemed to last an eternity, Raisa looked into my eyes and took the choker from my hands.

Then, she placed the choker around her own neck.

The gem glowed and integrated with her body.
PICTURE

I didn’t ask if it was alright.

Since she’s gone this far, I had nothing to suspect and no need to check.

This was the Eternal Slave——the slaves of this world.

「Alright then. We’ve got some work to do.」
「Ok!」

Acting as if nothing had happened I gave Raisa her orders.

She obeyed as if nothing had happened.

Nothing.

Other than the magic charging changing to 2 per second, nothing had changed.

Just a Master and his slave, the everyday sight.
*********************************
A place and time unknown to Raisa.

Night, outside of Ribek.

I arrived at a clandestine meeting with Maya and the girls.

「We’ve captured the culprit, he’s here.」

Maya pointed at a cell a short distance away.

I couldn’t judge well from a distance, but I could see one man inside.

「The proof?」
「We caught him red-handed. He was attempting to set fires around the palace.」
「Did he confess?」
「It’s incoherent, but we can clearly tell how much he hates you.」

I see.

I looked at the cell.

He also realized I was here and started rattling the cell.

I ignored him. ——it’s enough.

「I’m sorry, but can I leave him to you?」
「Is that alright?」
「Yes, yes it is.」
「Alright. We’ll take care of it.」
「Sorry girls. I’ll make sure to fulfill our promise.」
「I’m looking forward to it.」

Maya said grinning and laughing.

She was a good woman.

I started to leave, there was no need to be here anymore.

「Oh, I have to give this to you as well.」

Maya said and handed me a card.

It was a Normal——DORECA.

「We confiscated it.」

It seems she predicted what I wanted to ask.

「We thought that it’d be best kept in your hands.」
「I guess that’s right, I’ll keep it.」

I accepted it.

The DORECA glowed, but nothing changed.

「Menu Open」

————————-
Type: Normal Card
Magic Level: 0
Items Created: 0
Number of Slaves: 0
————————–

It looked like a completely new DORECA.

I didn’t know what use it had yet.

I put it in my pocket.

「Alright, then I’ll leave it to you.」
「You can count on us.」

And I left.

I ignored the clamoring man from beginning to end.

With this, the only Master with a DORECA is me.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!

  2. Man, looks like he had his just desserts. Good riddance for bad rubbish.

  3. “With this, the only Master with a DORECA is me.”
    A flag as obvious as this cannot be missed. MC, you are basically taunting the world to give you an even greater challenge.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    • You think the Goddess will keep sending shitty DORECA users to keep the balance of good and evil?

      • Not going to happen. She only wanted two people to revitalize the world because she wanted to see how both of them would make it happen.
        And remember, it was BECAUSE of the the balance of good and evil that the world went to heck.

      • Nope, but I think there is one left…. like the supposedly defeated demonlord actually being an evil DORECA owner and still alive just hiding himself from the heroes who defeated him to await their death from old age.
        Some plot twist like that or so.

        Whatcha think?

      • I think that since Eternal Slaves existed before the two arrived on that world, this must mean that the Doreca – in some form – likely also pre-existed their arrival. So there are no more ‘goddess-given’ Dorecas, but there might be ancient codexes, tomes, or amulets that serve a similar function, being inferior creations made by local wizards seeking to emulate the divine. But even if they are inferior, if an entire cabal of such wizards works together they could still become a significant problem.

        Or it may be that the author is winding down the story, and in a chapter or two the epilogue will appear. :p

        I’m still wondering if he realizes that the children he spoke of with Raisa (and his other Eternal Slaves) will be his own, or that by claiming he will take in those children as his Eternal Slaves he is effectively stating he will be binding his own future daughters to himself. I think he might actually not yet realize this.

      • well if the daughters come out as eternal slaves always, then they much follow some other reproductive path than humans, which means it’s not a problem genetically speaking for him to marry his (eventual) daughters too. It’s weird yeah, but shouldn’t technically pose an issue.

  4. I HOPE SHE S THE ONE TO KILL THAT LOSER

    he kill the fool or breck his legs and cut his hands

  5. Thanks for supporting our laziness.
    Well, it’s finally time for the MC to overthrow the god who gave them the DORECA in the first place!

  6. I think author want creates harem without eternal slaves? If that’s true then jannen~
    Thanks for the chapter…

  7. About time he disposed Seiya.

  8. So Seiya is finally out of the picture. I hope…
    Thanks for the new chapter!

  9. Thanks for the chapter !!

  10. Well, flunky villain out of flunky villain capacity.
    And no, he’s not even going to get death by snusnu; to the amazonians he’s not even worth considering.
    He WILL however get F-ed up though…but not in the way you’d think.

  11. Maybe it’ll merge together to form an even stronger and better one…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

  12. Thanks for the chapter!
    Yes finally!

  13. Thanks for the chapter.

    Btw. I have already an idea how to put that new reset and empty DORECA to use.
    Use it as sign for the next successor.
    How it works:
    The ‘king’ will have both DORECAs – one to use and one empty card for safekeeping.
    When the king grows old and chooses a successor that successor will get the empty card and register as its owner.
    Then the sfuture successor gets to choose one eternal slave from the younger generation at that time as his first slave.
    From then on the chosen successor will have to proof his worth and right to be the successor by using the DORECA wisely.
    The better he does the more slaves who aren’t attached to the king yet may he take as his own servants.
    That way the king can train his successor.

    When the king then retires or dies the new king can take over with a number of eternal slaves.while also already understanding how the DORECA works.
    And when the old king finally dies the new king will take his DORECA the same as before for safekeeping and to designat his own successor one day.

    RIP Seiya, you’ll not be missed lol

     ======== \Thanks!!

  15. That second half sure felt a bit dark.. I wonder if Seiya is going to die from those folks now? Honestly feels like they would.
    also that phrase “good woman” was oddly chilling in how distanced from emotions of the normal character it was.

    I wonder if he can assign a card to someone else now?

  16. Woah…. that last bit was intense compared to the normal feel of the story.
    I really hope this is the last we see of Seiya.

    Well, Thanks for the Chapter and your continued work!

  17. Thanks for the treat.

  18. Finally!!!
    Time to dispose a background character whose name I don’t know

  19. Vol3 end?
