Chapter 13 – Demon Lord Rukie and Chancellor Kelve’s worries about Thor

── That night, in the throne room of the Demon Castle ──

“Thor-dono made a [Storage Box] ────! ?? “

The scream of Chancellor Kelve echoed in the room.
Rukie, the masked demon Lord rebuked him.

“Don’t suddenly yell, Kelve.
You surprised me.”
“The one that is surprised is me! Doesn’t your majesty also know about the [Storage Box] used by the Hero!?”
“I know.
It’s a skill to store a large amount of items.
It seems that it was called by various names such as [Storage Box], [Item Box] and [Storage Space].”
“Yes, that was one of the reasons why different world heroes were so strong.”

Kelve remembered the oral tradition that was handed down from the previous chancellor.
Of course, there was also some information about the Hero’s [Storage Box].
The hero summoned from another world was able to retrieve a large number of items in the air from a small bag.

For the demons who were fighting them, it was a scary threat.

When we thought that he was fighting bare-handed, a big sword suddenly came out, and when we thought he was injured, he took out a lot of potions from a small bag, it was too unpredictable.

“If you see a Hero, 100 items will appear.”

This is a saying that is passed down in the Demon Territory.

“In the first place, [Storage Box] was such a rare ability that some heroes did not even have it.”
“I know.
My father said that “If all the heroes had it, the demons might have been destroyed”
“And this terrifying thing was created by Thor-dono…”

Chancellor Kelve’s face turned pale.

“This is a grave situation, Your Majesty! Thor-dono must be prevented from the monopoly of [Storage Box]!!”
“I think it’s okay.
Kelve.”
“Why!?”

“He said that he would make one for Mabel and me too.

Gosuuu.

Chancellor Kelve involuntarily slams his forehead against the pillar.

“What’s wrong! Kelve!”
“… For His Majesty the Demon King and Mabel he will make… The hero’s [Storage Box].
The concept of rare items in this world is breaking… What will happen to the Demon territory from now on?”
“Well, calm down, Kelve.”
“I’m sorry, I lost my composure.”
“No, I’m sorry to surprise you.
Thor asked me to talk to Kelve.”
“To me?”
“Thor said, “As the Alchemist of the Demon Lord, I want to be reasonable and straightforward.'”

Rukie, the Demon Lord, said with a clear expression.

“And Thor promised to be on our side with the Demon Lord.
It’s quite a heavy statement so I don’t think that he will lie about it.”
“Yes.
I also think Thor-dono is worthy of our trust.”

To pull his thoughts together, Chancellor Kelve shook his head.

“He obediently submitted his own [Foot Bath] too.”
“That’s right.
He’s … that kind of guy.”

Rukie, the Demon Lord, swings her legs while sitting on the throne.

“The problem is that I’ve never seen such a person.
Really I can’t take my eyes off him.
He’s really a problem! Yup!”
“Your majesty.”
“What, Kelve”
“What happened when you were with Thor-dono?”
“… Nothing?”
“Oddly enough, Your Majesty seems to be in a good mood.”

“I naturally talked to Thor for a bit.”
“Naturally talked?”
“That’s right.
We talked to each other and I decided to believe in Thor.
That’s all.”
“understood”

Chancellor Kelve corrected his posture and bowed.

“I have pledged allegiance to Your majesty.
If your Majesty decides to believe in Thor-dono, I won’t question your decision.”
“Umu.
Kelve always helps me.”
“I’m happy that you said that.
By the way, Your Majesty.”
“What?”
“About Thor-dono marrying Mabel.”
“── What !?”
“Again, you are still not on board? But I think the best way to keep Thor-dono tied to this demon territory is a political marriage.
It’s too dangerous to let go of that kind of talent.
Anyone is fine, it doesn’t have to be Mabel.
“────”
“After that, if you keep the baby with the mother, it will be a good hostage to Thor-doon.
I don’t want to suspect him, but it’s just insurance.”
“Hostage …?”
“I know I’m reluctant to do it too.”
“Oh, I’m reluctant too.
Rather, I think it shouldn’t be done.”

Demon Lord Rukie shakes her head.

She knew that Thor was not a messenger but a hostage sent to the Demon territory.
There is no way he should have a political hostage that takes away the child as a hostage.
That’s something she would never do as Thor’s friend.

“I can’t forgive a political marriage that ignores Thor’s will.
If he says he wants to marry someone in the Demon territory … Then that’s a different story, but I will never allow the strategy to take hostages!! “
“I apologize if you feel offended.
Your Majesty.”

Chancellor Kelve withdraws obediently.

“But this is also for Your Majesty’s own good.
Please understand.”
“I know.
Kelve.”
“Thank you”

Chancellor Kelve bowed to Demon Lord Rukie.

“U, umu.
It’s no good to lose your composure, Kelve.
Suddenly mentioning marrying Thor …good grief.”
“By the way, Your Majesty.”
“What is it this time !?”
“Why did you turn your head away when you just talked to me?”
“… The weather outside looks great”
“Can you please talk to me while looking at me? If possible, could you remove your mask ──”
“Eiiiiiiiiiiii! Don’t probe into a maiden’s heart!”

I unintentionally yelled.
It was a strange feeling.
Under my mask, my cheeks felt hot.

It was after hearing the words of Chancellor Kelve, about “The political marriage between Thor and Mabel.”
I involuntarily imagined that,

I was sitting alone next to Thor and Mabel, who are married and drinking tea.
It was supposed to be a tea party for three, but I felt really lonely.
I wonder why…

“── I’m sorry.
It seems that I lost my composure.”
“No.
I was impolite too.”
“I know Kelve is thinking of the country.
Take care of Thor.
If he obstructs the interests of the Demon Territory, let me know immediately.

“Thank you”
“By the way, Kelve”
“Yes, Your majesty.”

“Do you think that Thor will do anything that undermines the interests of the Demon Territory?”
“I think that he won’t.”
“As I thought.”

It seems that we agree.

(Because that person only thinks about making magic items)

He really is hopeless.
That is why I want to see him stand beside me.
It wasn’t the Demon Lord, but the feeling of the demon girl, Rukie herself.

“It’s already pretty late, I’ll be resting soon.”
“Thank you for your hard work.
Your Majesty.”
“Kelve must have been tired because many things happened today.”
“Yeah, there were indeed many things.”

Nodding again, Demon Lord Rukie and Chancellor Kelve, the two thought of the cause of “the various things” ── Thor.

Chancellor Kelve thought, “We have welcomed a ridiculous person from the empire.”
Demon Lord Rukie thought, “I have met a person who can’t take my eyes off.”
They left the Throne room and walked to their respective rooms──

“By the way, what does Mabel think of Thor?”
“Aside from the political, we need to confirm Mabel’s intentions too.”

The two thought of the same thing again.
It’s already late at night.
Mabel should be resting in the castle’s servant’s quarters.
Let’s ask her tomorrow.

With Demon Lord Rukie thinking as a maiden and Chancellor Kelve thinking practically ──

A night in the Demon Castle passed.
