er I want to eat… With proper consideration to nutrition, of course.

To a young man, the Demon King Castle is not the castle of the arch-enemy of man, but heaven.

「Let’s go! Let’s go!」

「Fufu, oh master Hero.
You should change out of those clothes first.」

I had on the pajamas that they had given me.

The time spent sleeping is when one is at their most vulnerable, so it was essential that I learned to be able to wake up at the slightest presence.

At first, I could not understand the use of sleeping attire that had zero defensive advantages, but after trying them on, they were pretty comfortable.

Initially, I remained vigilant, but those within the Demon King Castle are surprisingly non-hostile.

I was given an explanation about that once before but…

「The ice cream is gonna melt!」

「So that it can be eaten at any time that master Hero wishes to awaken, time around the pancake has been stopped with space-time elemental magic, so please rest assured.」

Space-time elemental magic is a precious element that only two members of humanity can use, but more so than that, I could not help but shout「It can be used like that? Whoever came up with that is a genius.」in admiration.

I can use it too, so it might be a good idea to try that next time.

It’s useful to stop a demi-beast in its tracks when subjugating them, but I never thought about using it to retain heat.

Since I’ve only ever thought of magic as a means to defeat my enemies, this has honestly left a deep impression on me by comparison.

However, this type of magic takes up no small sum of mana, so I tend not to use it.

I better head to the dining hall before whoever is stopping time around the pancakes gets tired and collapses.

I asked Ferris to help me with this and that, I finished changing and hurried to the dining hall.

『Hold on a minute, Rain! Are you just gonna leave me here? Are you mad? This is enemy territory! 』

Leaving the panicking holy sword, I exit the room.

After a short walk, I arrive.

There is a dining table that’s large enough to fit a dozen people at once.

Two chairs were prepared on the shorter edge of the table.

Someone was already seated on one of them.

「Eleanor…! Good morning.」

I smile naturally when I saw that woman.

「Hrk…!」

The silver-haired Majin known as Eleanor gripped her chest while her cheeks blushed.

「Are you ok…? D-does your chest hurt again?」

Eleanor is my benefactor, and she also holds a considerable position within the Demon King Army, but for some reason, she seems to get assaulted by chest pains whenever I’m around.

「N-no, please, there is no need to worry.
It’s just that… Master Rain’s smile has quite the charm.

「I-I see…」

Rain is my name.

I was left on the doorstep of the orphanage on a rainy day when I was a baby, so the orphanage decided to call me Rain.

But I don’t really care about that.

I am very grateful to Eleanor because she is the reason I get to live as I am now.

But…besides how she’s clutching her chest in my presence right now, there have also been times where her knees buckled while having a nosebleed, drooling, or muttering the word「Precious…」before fainting.
I’m a little worried about her.

Apart from all that though, she’s a beautiful, kind-hearted, big-breasted, soft all over, and…frankly, very strong Majin.

「Are you finished with your work?」

「Yes.
I managed to come back early this morning, so I thought that I’d rest after having breakfast with master Rain.」

「In that case, I wish you would have woken me up…」

「M-me? Personally wake master Rain…? To have the honor of witnessing master Rain’s precious sleeping visage…? Wh-what must I do in exchange for such a dream-like privilege…?!」

Through the other five Saviors’ policy, I was given the minimum amount of education…I think.

Since the teachers were also the other five Saviors, I have no idea what an ordinary education is like.

I was forbidden from making unnecessary contact with others.

So maybe that’s why I have no idea what Eleanor is saying.

「??? W-why don’t you just come in normally?」

As if all the strength was sucked out of her body, Eleanor falls off her chair.

Ferris caught her fall.

Like a medic on a battlefield who just witnessed a soldier slip away into death’s grip, Ferris shakes her head.

「…Mistress Eleanor has fainted.」

「Wh-why?」

「I believe this was a very stimulating situation for mistress Eleanor.
Please, master Hero, do not concern yourself about being a house guest.
To us, so long as master Hero is happy, we are satisfied.」

Ferris smiled and then carried Eleanor out of the dining hall.

Not long after, the pancakes were brought in.

I’m worried about Eleanor, but I’ve recently learned that she not only faints on a dime but recovers just as quickly.

It would be rude to ignore the thing that they went to so much trouble to prepare for me, right?

My heart racing, I put the pancake in my mouth, and I felt like I was struck by lightning.

Getting hit by lightning feels hot, numb, and painful, but the pancakes are fluffy, warm, and sweet.

「Delicious…!」

Looks like there’s a portion for Eleanor too.
Guess I’ll bring it to her later.

It would be a waste to leave something so tasty uneaten.

While thinking about how I can achieve that without making her faint, I recall the day I met her.

In other words, the day that I decided to betray humanity.
