Chapter 95: Slave’s Wish

 


Nighttime in the Palace office.

Having finished her work, Mira came to report.

「They have all taken the panacea.」
「Good job.」
「I also threw them in jail, is that ok?」
「Hm? Why?」
「They attacked Master.」

Mira responded as if it was obvious.

After we became a country and I became King, one of the first things to happen was the enforcement of laws.

With Yuria as the center and the Mayors helping, they made a set of laws which I checked and put into effect.

By the way I had given quite a few suggestions and opinions in the process so it was pretty close to the laws of Japan.

However, it also included things that I thought were good and bad.

「That is illegal.」
「I see…certainly attacking others is illegal.」
「That’s not all, attacking Master is a blasphemous and treasonous sin.」
「Ah, forget about that one.」
「Eh?」

Mira seemed surprised.

Lese Majeste. Profaning and disrespecting the sovereign ruler of the land. It was such a law.

The ones who decided it were my slaves and the mayors whom I had rescued…so I guess it was pretty obvious when it ended up being the first article.

In fact it wasn’t 「Showing disrespect to the King」 it was instead worded as such….「Showing disrespect to Akito-sama.」

Of course I cut that out. I didn’t need that article.

「Why!?」
「There’s no why or why not…It’s because we don’t need it.」

I don’t really care if they disrespect me honestly.

There were two very important things for this country.

Citizens and slaves.

Instead of lese majeste I wanted laws that would protect the Eternal Slaves.

If there wasn’t a law to protect such lovable and adorable living things it would be strange.

By the way, it had not been put in place yet. I felt that if I left it to them to decide these laws, they would end up very strange. So for this I felt that I would have to do it myself.

There were existing laws, but as the King I had the ability to add new ones when I felt they were necessary.

「Mou, Master is too soft on them.」
「Is that so?」
「Yes it is! You should just execute people like that…」
「Don’t say that. Well, after getting locked up for the day, they should cool off.」
「For the day!?」

Mira was even more surprised. (TN: Me too…that was still a serious attempted crime…they should be in there for a much longer time.)

「One day is way too short.」
「Is that so? Am I not right? Other than disrespecting me…what have they done?」
「Eh?」
「Robbery? It was an attempt at best. Murder or assault? Those were also attempted at best. In fact there were no victims. So they would be acquitted.」
「………….」

Mira was dumbfounded.

「Master you are way too soft!」

She seemed almost irritated.

Wouldn’t this be the first time seeing one of my slaves like this?

It was a bit of a fresh sensation.

However, they were my slaves and would obey my orders.

Mira heaved a large sigh and unwillingly obeyed.

「I got it…the day after tomorrow I will release them.」
「I’ll leave it to you. Ah, and——」
「I’ll also ask if they are going to be working properly. I know.」

Mira said cutting me off.

I was surprised…

…but at the same time a bit happy. I thought it was endearing that she knew me well enough to predict what I was going to say.

I called out to Mira as she was about to leave the room.

「Wait.」
「What is it?」
「How many medals do you have?」
「Eh? By medal…do you mean this?」

Mira took out an origami medal.

Despite how she carried it around with her, it was still pristine. It appears that she was caring for it carefully.

「Yeah, how many of those do you ha—–no, wait.」

I stopped talking and shook my head.

I took out my DORECA and made ten pieces of paper.

I folded them all into medals and handed them to Mira.

「Here」
「Eh?」
「I promised to do something for you if you collected ten.」
「B-but all at once…」
「Is there some law that says I can’t do it all at once?」
「That——no, there isn’t…but…」

Of course there wasn’t one…if there was one, I would’ve crushed it.

Well…if my slaves had made a law like that I could also add exceptions to it instead of crushing it.

「But……why give them………」
「So if your Master wants to give you something…there needs to be a reason?」

The truth was a bit different from what I was saying, but I wouldn’t bring it up.

「Uh-uh, no such thing.」

Mira said as she shook her head in a panic.

「Ok, so what do you want? Tell me anything.」
「……anything?」
「Anything.」

…….just please not anything bad.

Mira fidgeted around, seeming to find it hard to speak up.

I wonder what was causing her to have such trouble?

Is she going to ask for a child right now?

It was a possibility given how much they want both generations to work for the same Master.

「Tell me without holding back. As I promised, I will fulfill it if I can.」
「Ok….then I’ll tell you.」
「Alright.」
「After all……I want you to…….make lese majeste a thing……please.」

Mira said with her voice sounding like it was about to disappear.
PICTURE

My head went blank…I hadn’t expected this.

「………..」
「I-I’m sorry, as expected it is——」
「Is that really important?」
「Eh?」
「I’m asking if it is important.」

I asked with a smile. Mira went blank for a moment, then smiled and nodded.

「Un! People who go against Master can’t be forgiven after all!」

……..good grief.

These girls……….these girls are……..

Haaaaaaaaa…

「I got it.」

I chuckled and nodded.

「Tell Yuria to write up a draft of that law.」
「Is that ok!?」
「I said I’d do what you asked. Do you think your Master is someone who takes back what he said?」
「No no! Not at all!」

Mira said smiling.

「Hey, can I go see Yuria now!?」
「Yeah…」

I nodded and Mira disappeared, running like the wind.

After around 5 minutes.

—Magic has been charged by 2,000,000—

It seems like Yuria was really happy as well.

  1. Yah, he’s too soft… maybe watching one of his girls hurt a little would help…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

    • Nah, he would just enforce the law to kill everyone who hurts an eternal slave. It would still be only a day in prison for attempted murder of the king.

  2. that guy is really an idiot sometimes
    i get it he is nice and all and sugary, but there has to be limits

    how much shit did he got into by not severely punishing his co-summoned dude right away?
    at least there was the excuse that he was a god’s chosen one and one of the only two people able to proactively restore the world

    now if he start forgiving crimes because he stopped them beforehand, people will start getting bolder and testing his authority even more dangerously

    plus, they tried to attack HIM! the world is literally doomed at this point if something bad happen to him! he should value his own existence even more! at the very least, lese majesty HAS to be a thing

    • Ha! Even if he permits and enforces a law for lese majesty he will probably make it with some extremely light punishment.

      E.g.: 1 day of imprisonment for attempted robbery on him, 2 days for attempted conspiracy against him and 3 days for attempted murder on him, then 1-2 week for successful robbery from his possession (depending on if the stolen goods are recovered or not), 1 month on a reveaed and proven conspiracy against him.

      So even if he enforces such a law it will lack any kind of threat to potential perpetrators.

      On the other hand he would probably enforce a strict law against harming his eternal slaves.
      -> like 10 year sentence to imprisonment including daily forced labor for causing a scratch on one of his eternal slaves or causing one of them to cry.
      -> Or like death sentence for making one of them bleed even from just a small shallow wound.

    • Frankly the author and apparently some readers don’t understand lese majesty. It’s not simply attacking the king, it’s ‘violating’ him in any way even with words. Under lese majesty you would be imprisoned simply for insulting the king. Say “I don’t like that King’ and it’s off to jail with you, even possibly could be executed. So implementing Lese Majesty is a rather barbaric notion.

      Seperatly, attempted Murder, robbery and assault are serious crimes that should have them locked away for years when done even to the common man, let alone a king. Given the world setting they should be labor slaves for a number of years before being released. They the protag dismisses the actual serious crimes like nothing but then accepts criminalizing speech is super f*ed up.

    • he had good reasons to ignore Seiya. His treatment of his slave was his business, not Akito’s. It was a slave given by a goddess, of course he would be hesitant to do anything to him. And also yeah he was the only other person who could help him at all, he was just useless in the end.

      Abandoning his slave or outright killing people would be the only thing that would urge Akito to do something about him even if he didnt murder him.

      As for the other things….why does it matter if people test his authority? Akito is basically their god at this point. All he has to do is say, “no food for you.” And they’ll shape up. Not only that, if he punishes everyone? Well all the people who he saved would eventually take it upon theirselves to form a mob and take down the rebels.

      Akito has many methods to deal with any discontents.

      But i agree he has to wisen up to his own value. Without him the world is fucked unless the goddess sends someone else. I never read the prologue so i dont know if she even can send more people but i dont see why she cant.

  3. Thanks for the new chapter!

  4. …………. I’m still waiting for the slave babies.

    Dammit, and here I was thinking that she’ll aak for a baby…. That was a hopeful thinking….

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. Thanks for the chapter.

    I can see where he is coming from regarding lese majeste. The personal arrogance required to want such a thing is almost the exact opposite of the type of personality encouraged / taught in Japanese society. He said he would accept having such laws, not that he would have stiff penalties for such, so he will probably reach a middle ground of setting low punishments for most forms of it.

    “By the way, it had not been put in place yet. I felt that if I left it to them to decide these laws, they would end up very strange. ”

    Yeah, leaving what are basically human house-elves to decide the laws on how they should be treated by their master is just asking for a really weird set of laws. On the other hand, if it were not for his ‘get magic from their happiness’ widget already giving him more than enough clues, then such a set of laws would make a good personal reference for knowing how they would want to be treated.

  8. Thanks for the treat.

  9. Thanks for the chapter!

  10. Thanks for the chapter!!

  11. I’m sorry but Akito is a f***ing r****** I like Happy non dark stories but if this story was to take a dark turn and go all game of thrones and have half of the people he cares about die He would deserve it just for how stupid he is being the fact this is a light hearted story is the only reason it hasn’t screwed over the people he cares about

  12. The day when his slaves and the soldier women want to have sex with him, he better be creating a lot of energy drinks.

  13. Sumantri Eko Saputro

    As a King, He is too stupid. In every nation, people who endanger the leader of a country is considered heavy criminal ans should be executed. Because they’re reside in his country region, they’re can considered as rebel or insurgency. Every insurgent have to be wiped out. What is he doing is lightly punish them. That is wrongdoing. Even you are need too restore this harsh world and being kind, there is a limit to being an idiot.

  14. and her son/daughter going to take her position will suffer because of the naive theiy father…how stupid mc?…
