Reincarnated Vampire Princess and Former Hero, Trample Over Mankind - CH 63.2
Translated by AmaLynne
I returned to the Demon King’s castle with Rain-san and entered the conference room to find that everyone had already gathered there.
「Ah, Rain, welcome back!」
Pow! …It was Yomi who greeted me with a smile.
「Oh, no, I’m talking about this one…」
Bad, I almost fell in love for a minute, she was so cute.
「……Lean, why don’t you stop flirting and sit down?」
「I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I’m not flirting!」
「…Well, that’s fine. Now, the reason I called you here is this. The Hero I mentioned has finally been deployed to the battlefield.」
With these words, the (for some reason) relaxed atmosphere around them changed drastically, and everyone looked on their guard.
Yomi, in particular, had a rather grim look on her face.
「Well, it doesn’t matter.」
And within two seconds, the tension was gone.
「…No, it’s not fine……」
「You say so? The average status of the current generation Hero is not even 8,000. Three of the Twelve Holy Apostles are accompanying them, but they are not much better than the rest. It is enough to send Yomi, Lean, Sakura, Gray, and Rain to them and have Sakura seal their transfer.」
That’s a bit of a stretch.
…I’ll kill the Hero no matter what.
After all, the Hero of this generation is the reincarnated Shinichi Kuroda.
He’s the scum who bullied me a lot in my previous life.
I wonder how I’m going to kill him.
Kill everyone around me, stomp the filth out of their lower body, make them lick the ground, peel off their fingernails, skin them, and finally burn them?
Hmm~…but drowning them would be nice. Or bludgeoning them to death? Or beat them to death? Mmm~, what to do.
「…Hey, Lean? Do you hear me?」
「………Ah! Oh, I’m sorry!」
「What’s wrong? Your cheerful face looks creepy, like a little girl’s before shopping.」
「…Whatever, let’s leave it at that…Demon King-sama, will you leave the matter of killing the Hero to me?」
「Hmm? I don’t mind. It’s unusual for you to take on the task of killing a small group of people.」
…Sure, it’s the most fun to devastate humans on a large battlefield, so I’m asking to be assigned to a battlefield that kills many thousands and tens of thousands of people, but you know what?
「I’ll leave it to Lean to decide what to do about the Hero. Now, to be frank, here’s the main topic.」
…What’s more important than the Hero?
I mean, how do I handle the Hero?
「All of a sudden…I’m thinking of creating a new executive position.」
A new executive position?
「A new position…Apart from the twelve of us?」
「Nope. I will pull out some of them from among them. The new executive position is, simply put, a select group of the strongest in the Demon Army. Since the ranks of the Demon Army executives are determined by their level of contribution, it is difficult to judge their abilities. Therefore, we selected the personnel purely based on their military prowess.」
「Well, simply because… The people I’m about to bring up are too strong, at a level that puts them outside of the executive position. It would be a shame to just let them work as executives as they are. I’d like to put them on the battlefield more and have them do work that relies on force.」
…Hmm? That means……
「…Does that mean I don’t have to do paperwork or anything?」
「That’s the first thing that comes out of your mouth……Well, I’m sure it’ll be less than when you were an executive.」
Pick me! Pick me! Pick me!
I don’t want to see any more papers! I almost died when I was doing it, with all the reports and stuff, even though I’m strong enough not to need sleep! I don’t want to go through that again!
「Now, let’s talk about the personnel. I’ll make the official announcement later…The fourth seat is for Gray, and the third seat is for Sakura…」
Come on! Come on!
「…The second seat is Lean. First seat is…Yomi, there.」
「…What’s the matter, Lean, you’ve been making a hundred faces since a while ago…Well, that’s it. You and others will be appointed as the『Four Demon Generals』of the Demon Army. We’ll change the alias later as well.」
「…King order…I have received it……」
「I’ll let Sakura know later.」
「Ah~hh…I was not chosen, huh? Well, I’m too old for that.」
「Rain is older than all of us!」
「Shaddap, get out of here.」
「It’s okay, Yomi. I’ll support you as the second seat.」
「Besides! I don’t have to do paperwork anymore!」
「That’s your real thoughts!?」
「I’m telling you, just because I said it’ll be less than when you were an executive doesn’t mean it won’t be there.」
