- Demon King of Phantom Thief – a Betrayed Thief Stole the Stats and Skills of the Hero Party Then Reigned Over the World
- Chapter 37 - Mary, Become a Real Saint
Emperor Grimt and a few of his aides were beheaded in a plaza near the castle.
When the executioner hung his head, the people cheered.
In the corner of the plaza, there were the figure of those that planned this coup d’etat and Victor.
“Will you mourn them too …?”
Victor asked, the leader, now the deputy chairman of the parliament, replied.
“Of course. They are not the ones who can go to heaven … but that’s why it’s important to mourn. It shows the attitude of the new government. The army of justice who regained power from the cruel emperor … we have to get that kind of impression. ”
The new government with the general as chairman was a military government.
If their image was damaged, there was a danger that it would soon become an evil army.
This was a time when they had to be sensitive to the people and to other countries.
And just because it was a military government didn’t mean it would be active in war.
The military and the people were already exhausted from war.
“The parliament has decided to make a peace treaties with the Allies and Tristram Kingdom. Thanks to you, the war is over, Victor …”
The leader slapped Victor on the shoulder.
“I cannot thank you enough. The country has been saved.”
“If you want to say thank you, say that to Demon King-sama … Then, I’ll take my reward.”
The face of the leader turned pale.
One of the rewards for borrowing Victor’s strength was the life of Elada Colette, who was sent to the emperor on the verge of starvation.
Victor had been acting together as a powerful ally.
Even so, right now the leader was deeply reminded that the man in front of him was a demon.
Just because a coup d’etat happened, didn’t mean that everything had changed.
Elada Colette had long lived outside the castle.
Due to the care of her maids, Elada had completely recovered.
“You all, breakfast is ready!”
When Elada entered the room with cabbage, Abigail’s giant larvae gathered.
“Kevin, you’re a glutton as always. Dally, you’re the smallest, so you should eat more.”
The larvae ate the cabbage from Elada’s hands.
“Ah, abii, ahehehehehe … uhya”
Abigail was sitting and laughing alone in a chair.
“Abigail, it’s time to eat, wait a minute.”
Even Abigail, who was insane, looked happy.
Recently, she could go to the bathroom alone.
Elada couldn’t become no. 2 of the 13th Corps as before.
However, she thought living like this wasn’t bad at all.
“Here is your breakfast.”
The maids sent from the castle were already used to the mysterious larvae and Abigail.
“Sitting and waiting there properly, Abigail-sama is great.”
“Uhihi … Abi …”
“All the little guys, you eat properly too.”
The maids lined up the food on the table carefully to not stepping on the larvae that eat the cabbage.
“Today it is a roll cabbage, the same with the little guys.”
“That’s right, Ufufu. Then please excuse us.”
Abigail also remembered how to use a spoon and fork.
While spilling a little of the soup, she ate the rice.
“It’s delicious right, Abigail-sama.”
There was warm sunshine from the window.
Today was a good day.
–Then a guest appeared.
“Ah … you are …!”
Elada unintentionally dropped the wooden spoon on the table.
“It’s been a while, Elada …”
Tattered black coat and black hat – this was a figure that Elada would never forget.
Alive in a coffin, that hunger and thirst always haunting her.
A symbol of that nightmare, one of the four heavenly king, Gunslinger Victor.
Elada kicked her chair and stood up, ready to die.
“What … what did you come here for …?!”
Elada couldn’t stop shaking her knees.
Still, she took one step further.
“… I won’t give you Abigail!”
“No, I don’t know who that Abi something is, but I have something with you , Elada …”
“Me ……you say…?”
Victor told the paralized Elada.
“I will take you to Demon Lord-sama …”
“Am I going to be sacrificed or something …?”
Elada had been prepared to die for many times.
She also accepted Abigail, who was insane.
Even so, she still fear the demon.
But Victor answered lowly.
“Demon King-sama doesn’t like sacrifices. Rest assured, you won’t be in danger. All you need is mourning … That’s it.”
Was “mourning” a word that described something special in demon language?
It was hard to imagined.
But – Elada couldn’t resist the man in front of her.
“… Okay then, I’ll do what you say.”
“… But can you give me some time?”
“Are you going to bid farewell to your family?”
The concept of family was one of the knowledges that Diana has teached.
“… No, I don’t have a family. I’m alone in all my life. But I have to ask someone to take care of Abigail and the little guys.”
The maids would take care of them.
Some were afraid of the mysterious larvae, but some maids said that they would be fine once they got used to it.
“Have a safe trip, Collet-sama”
“Yeah … I will leave Abigail and the little guys with you …”
The next morning, Victor let Elada went up into a cart pulled by a giant wolf.
Elada’s face was determined after a night’s preparation.
“This time … you won’t put me in the coffin?”
“Oh, that is wrong …”
“I shouldn’t put a living person in a coffin. I also shouldn’t forget to feed them. You will eat with me this time…”
The previous trip and this trip were very different.
However, no matter what awaited her, this time Elada swore that she wouldn’t let go of her pride as the 13th Corps.
The wolf ran on the highway while pulling the cart comfortably.
After entering the mountain path, the sun started to tilt.
Victor pulled the reins and stopped the wolf.
“… can you catch that pheasant?”
Victor asked Elada, pointing to the pheasant bird flying high in the sky.
Elada threw a knife to the sky at a speed that was not visible to the average person.
With a short cry, the pheasant fell into the woods.
“… Good job”
“Even if I look like this, I’m still no.2 of 13th Corps.”
The dinner today was a pheasant pot.
Some vegetables were in the cart.
While Victor was plucking the pheasant’s feather, Elada made some quick preparations.
The one that cooked was Elada.
A delicious pheasant pot with some vegetables was created.
Victor said that after drinking the soup
“My cooking isn’t that good … From now on, you are the on in charge of cooking, Elada. Your food is delicious …”
“Is…is that so?! Then, ea, eat a lot!”
Even if he was a demon, Elada did not feel bad because she was praised for her cooking.
“I don’t know what you are thinking …”
Victor said, while chilling the meat.
“Demon King-sama is a very kind person … you don’t have to worry … I’ll guarantee that …”
As the sun set, Elada looked at Victor’s figure beside a bonfire.
Victor ate the pheasant pot expresionlessly.
(Looking at him like this … he is not that different from humans. It’s a strange feeling …)
Elada also ate the bird meat.
“Don’t burn your tongue…”
Gradually, the night went on.
And thus began their love story…lol(TN: this one is from me.)
Even after the war ends, the busy hospital didn’t change until reinforcements arrived.
Mary woke up early in the morning, ate a simple meal, and immediately began her treatment of the patient.
Unwrapping the bandage, applied [Fast Heal], and wrapping a new bandage.
That was her usual work.
“What’s wrong, saint-sama? Are you not feeling well?”
Mary felt something really strange that she didn’t hear the wounded soldier.
――Mary could hardly feel the decrease in her magical power.
(What is the meaning of this……?)
Mary knew she shouldn’t do this, but for a test, she tried to using [Heal] on the wounded soldiers.
The open wound on the shoulder was closed in an instant.
“Hey, Saint-sama, you shouldn’t use [Heal], before, you …”
Mary only felt that her magical power were only slightly reduced.
She even felt that if she used [Heal] on all the wounded in the hospital, she would still had some reserve of magical power
“He, hey, Saint-sama!”
Mary began to use [Heal] on the wounded person from one side to the other.
Healing the wounds of all the wounded in the hospital and still had plenty of magical power.
“Wait Mary! You shouldn’t use [Heal] … What do you mean? Healing all the wounded in the hospital using [Heal] … That’s impossible!”
The head nurse shouted.
Even though she was a priest chosen for the hero party, no human could use [Heal] that much.
Mary jumped out of the church and healed the from the outside tent one after another.
She still had some magical power!
(At that time …)
Mary was now convinced of what Keith gave to her that night at the fort.
(What Keith-san gave…is magic capacity!)
That day, Mary had healed the wound of all the wounded people before the sun rose to the top.
“My leg … my leg can move …!”
“Amazing … It’s not just a rumor … she is a true saint!”
On this day, the true legend of saint began.
