Chapter 515: The Place Where it Ends


A Few Days Before the Annihilation of Dard Mountain. Goldonia Palace Conference Room.


We will now commence the 16th war conference.


Others take their seats following the declaration of the chairperson.


There are many people to say the least.


Four long desks are lined up in the largest meeting room in the palace with all chairs occupied and each person sitting close enough to touch shoulders.


Meanwhile, the luxurious chair positioned on a higher level than the othersthe kings chair is the only seat vacant.


Inevitably, everyones eyes focused on the person with the next highest authority, Kenneth.


First of allCount, can you give us your opinion from a financial standpoint?


That man who Kenneth points to wearing a red-based formal uniform with gold and silver threads woven in nods.


This war has seen losses of a magnitude greater than the likes of any in the past! Expenses too! Not to mention, the national treasury that should have been abundant is running out.


As the man gave his impa.s.sioned speech, those around him cried out in agreement or nodded quietly to show support.


Next,Marquess. I would like to hear your opinion as the Vice Minister of Justice.


The man stands up as he strokes his splendid beard.


The biggest problem is the harm done to the n.o.bles independence under the name of war. To put it simply, I am afraid that authority is too concentrated on Marquess Radhalde who is merely the head of military! Although he possesses a high status, he is still a rising n.o.ble family! As n.o.bles who were conferred peerage first, we should be the respected onesahem. Of course, our loyalty to His Majesty is unwavering.


The man, fearing that his words were too critical of leaders.h.i.+p, concludes with praise for the king and Goldonia.


Among the cheers, admiration and shouts of agreement, Kenneth sighs as he applauds.


This will be the 16th complaint contest, huh?


A mutter came from the man standing beside Kenneth and was soft enough that only the two of them could hear.


Please refrain, Talger. This is a venerable court where n.o.bles gather. It is not a place where a servant like you with no rank can voice any concerns.


After being chided, the man hangs his head.


He has a small stature less than 165 cm, and because he is thin, he looks even smaller.


Yet his sunken cheeks, dark bags under his eyes and unflinching gaze despite being reprimanded by his lord emphasized the mans eeriness rather than weakness.


Talger had been with Kenneth since some time during the war.


His origins werent known, but as a servant in charge of ch.o.r.es with no rank or job t.i.tle, n.o.body really paid much attention to him.


Kenneth also did not appear to a.s.sign him many tasks or talk about him.


However in reality, Kenneths actions changed ever since Talger accompanied him like a shadow.


Kenneth was always skilled at subterfuge, but his craftiness and meticulousness increased, and he even began to meddle in the affairs of the new n.o.bles, even forcing a few to obey him against their will.


I apologize for my rudeness at the war council, where only the n.o.blemen of the court are allowed to speak.


His sarcastic remark breaks Kenneths expression with a smile.


And Kenneth wholeheartedly agrees with the statement in his mind.


While the meeting is supposed to be about war, the soldiers are naturally all on the frontlines.


Those who a.n.a.lyze the battle from the rear are new n.o.bles close to the Military Commissioner and also cant be summoned.


Thus, all that could be done now was complain about how the war is too long, how authority was taken away, and how arrogant and detestable the Military Commissioner is.


Then, we will ask the Military Commissioner jointly


Seeing the others starting to agree with him, Talger opens his mouth again.


Because His Majesty entrusted authority to Marquess Radhalde, it doesnt matter what we send to him. In my humble opinion, the one whose mind you should change is His Majesty.


Kenneth does not stop his servant this time, instead he faces the a.s.sembly with a smile and responds in a calm tone.


As if there is anybody who is brave enough to offer their opinion to His Majesty. Send the meaningless letter to Radhalde. It will obviously be ignored and we can laugh about it again. Its just like this meeting.


Being someone who has a shallow understanding of the military, Kenneth knew how pointless it was to hold a war conference with only civil officials.


He hosted the meeting anyways in order to bring together those dissatisfied with Erich and to present himself as the solution.


However, I heard the state of war has been improving greatly since last month. For example, I heard they have been defeating the enemy in a series of large scale battles and they have even recaptured Altair.


Thats great. If we a.s.sume Goldonias victory is a forgone conclusion and the war ends quickly, so will Radhaldes usefulness.


No, no, your thinking is naive. Radhalde will not be the only with merits of war, his followersthose vulgar new n.o.bles will also be able to throw their weight around.


Apparently the number of casualties have been going up the last few days. Although the enemy is on the verge of being annihilated, the losses may be in the thousands or possibly tens of thousands. It is truly truly sad for soldiers of the kingdom to diebut it could be the bit of dirt we have on the Military Commissioner.


n.o.bles are terrible. They speak of a tragedy with the corners of their mouths curled up.


Talger whispers to Kenneth.


A few days ago, they called for the movement of a large amount of forces and ma.s.sive reinforcements. It was reported that a new species of monster appeared in droves, but further details are not yet available


Fumu.


Kenneth smiles outwardly to conform with the others while his mind rapidly processes calculations.


With the state of war at a decisive stage, a few casualties here and there are not an issue at all.


In fact, unnecessary losses after the war has been settled will be a stain on Erichs record, which to Kenneth, would be pleasing.


But is it a simple blunder? Radhaldes resourcefulness is the real deal. Would he make such a stupid mistake here?


Kenneths mind spins faster.


(If I prematurely cause a fuss, there is a possibility it backfires later. I guess the best plan is to refrain from open criticism.)


Having reached a conclusion, Kenneth begins to rise and calm everyone, but Talger whispers in his ear before that.


Instead of sitting back and observing, lets incite the rash individuals to complain.


Kenneth instantly senses Talgers intention.


If after causing a stir, and it is indeed a blunder by Radhalde, I can latch on and hammer it home


Conversely, if it was actually an unavoidable disaster, lets cut them loose and dismiss their remarks as foolish condemnation.


Kenneth nods and runs his eyes across the room to decide his target.


The meaningless meeting ends and Kenneth leaves the conference room.


Still-


Kenneth begins his monologue out loud and completes the rest of the sentence internally.


He did not want to burden himself with the unnecessary risk that comes with leaking information.


I have provided various accommodations to Hardlettand no reply. He quite resembles Radhalde.


He snorts at the thought.


The same typeyet he will not be promoted any higher if he continues to obey his superior, Radhalde. I even told him that he should follow me, a person without connection to the military, if he wanted to aim for the top of the army. For him not to understand that, in the end, hes just a brainless boar, huh? Perhaps I overestimated him.


Kenneth nods so subtly that n.o.body from behind would notice.


Victory will definitely boost Radhaldes reputation. But I have time to plot and scheme during his absence.


He lets out a chuckle that is indistinguishable from a cough to clear his throat.


That is when an unrestrained voice calls out to him.


Marquess Baldwin. Do you have some time to spare?


Being addressed so unexpectedly made Kenneths heart almost leap out of his chest, however he suppressed his reflex to show only a slight tremble in his shoulders and turned around with a smile.


My, myif it isnt Rosario-dono. Its not very kind to suddenly sneak up behind someone.


Kenneth greeted the individual with a polite bow and smile but clicked his tongue in his mind.


Rosariothe woman beloved by the king. The kings love toward her is so strong it can be considered an insanity.


Thus she had to be treated as carefully as one would handle fragile gla.s.s.


Brutish behavior would naturally incur the wrath of the king.


However an overly ingratiating att.i.tude will create suspicions of an ulterior motive and also incur the kings wrath.


It may also be dangerous to simply talk to her in an unpopular area like this.


Youll catch a cold in such a dimly lit place. If we return to the meeting room, you can have a cup of tea. Why dont we move there?


Kenneth tries to skillfully use his words to lead her somewhere people frequent to remove doubts of a secret meeting between the two of them, but Rosario shakes her head.


I do not want to trouble you to that extent. Talking while standing is enough. Marquess Baldwin, I heard that you held a meeting regarding the warand I heard from the person beside you that we are near victory, and we have also suffered great losses again today. Explaining to a woman like me may not be the most entertaining, but I dont mind if you keep it simple. Id appreciate it, if you please.


Kenneth groans internally.


I want to tell her to ask a soldier in the palace, but for the conference held in the meeting room, the representative is me It would be an easy task to deceive her, but if that displeases the kingargh, what a bothersome woman.


As asked by Rosario, Kenneth starts describing the situation on the frontlines with not much detail.


But probably because it was information she already knew, her expression began to grow bored.


And then it happened.


If I may.


Talger drops his knee to the floor.


We have just received word that Lord Hardlett was killed in action during the most recent encounter


The source of the yelp was Rosario.


Her eyes widen in shock and terror, and her breathing becomes faster.


however it has been confirmed to be a hoax. I am here to warn the individuals in the palace to be wary of other such disturbance strategies by the enemy.


I-is that so? A-ahem.


Rosario clears her throat to regain her composure.


Ill be careful then. I apologize for taking time when youre busy.


By the time the woman walked away, Talger and Kenneth were already looking at something else.


Aegir POV


South Yuguria. On the way to Poron.


Uuu.


My body shudders at the sudden chill in the air.


Aegir-sama, did you just e.j.a.c.u.l.a.t.e?


course not. I just felt a little cold.


I caress Celias cheek and kick open the door of a house.


No enemies. No insects either. There are three skins.


I pick up the skins which have fallen in front of the fireplace.


To be precise, they are skins and bones.


They are the poor sacrifices who have had their insides sucked out by spiders.


The skins are taken away and dumped in a hole on the outskirts of the village.


It may not make sense to burn this place since its empty, but it also serves as a burial.


This village as well?


The voice belonged to Erich.


Dard mountain and the hole in it disappeared and the insects stopped appearing.


We stopped fighting and immediately withdrew, and after starving the insects to death for two nights, they were gone from the east.


The same method was used to halt the insects attack in the west, and after slowly reuniting, we started to make our way to the final base in South Yuguria, Poron.


It seems they wiped out everything from people to livestock and even goblins nesting in a nearby forest.


I shake the goblin, which still stinks as skin, a few times and throw it in the pit at my feet.


Erichs nose also turns up in disgust.


Nothing can be done if that kind of monster appears without warning.


An enemy fort can be seen the moment we left the village.


Although there is a South Yuguria flag flying high, we dont order the troops to prepare for battle.


Its because of the giant hole in the center of the fort.


It must be the work of an insect hydra. There are traces of teeth on the edges of the hole.


I dont want to think about it.


Erich waves his hand to discourage me from expanding on the topic and orders his soldiers to search the building.


Soldiers initially invaded cautiously with spears at the ready, but after ten minutes, one of them waved at us from the highest point of the fort.


Even a st.u.r.dy military base was destroyed. This might actually be the end of South Yuguria, with not a single person left.


Erich says with a mix of discomfort and fear on his face.


I smack Schwartzs a.s.s and have him climb up the hill.


I survey the area from a better vantage point.


Houses, the feudal lords mansion, forts, castles, and various other buildings either have holes in them or are burnt from being set on fire.


On the other hand, golden fields of ripened wheat, wells, food storehouses and places which people could not hide in remain untouched.


Unlike humans, bugs dont plunder. They solely eat creatures.


We quiet down and listen closely.


Not even a birds chirping could be heard. The only living beings here are us and the soldiers.


This is the land of death. South Yuguria is gone.


While its easier on us with no enemies around, it feels creepy when weve come this far and there is absolutely no activity.


In any case, let us go to Poron. At this rate, were only going to find skins.


I say dejectedly as I see more skins of humans on top of the hill.


Youre right. By the way, on a separate notecant you do something about your horse?


Erich points at Schwartz.


Im embarra.s.sed. I thought about cutting it off too.


Schwartz was previously inflicted by the caterpillars poison, but recovered at the same time as Pipi with the help of Natia.


But even after the poison stopped threatening his life, some serious side effects persisted.


Schwartz neighs as his one-meter long p.e.n.i.s dangles between his groin. It will probably brush against the ground depending on how he walks.


Look at that, its huge


G-gulp.


Soldiers, especially the female ones, swallow their saliva audibly.


It wouldnt be a big deal if he was the only one affected.


Hauu.


Pipi wobbles over to me.


She hops on the front of Schwartz while holding down her chest.


Has it gotten better?


No. They wont go back to normal.


Pipi lifts up her s.h.i.+rt.


Her nipples are red and swollen to the size of a persons thumb.


The side effect of the caterpillars poison causes erection to a males genitals and erection to a females nipples.


Not only are they hard, they are highly sensitive.


According to Natia, its her first time curing poisons so she focused on saving the patients life. Since the aftereffects are non-life threatening, she will gradually work to cure them.


Are you okay, Pipi? Do you want me to rub it again like yesterday?


I clear my throat before my hand reaches Pipis unnaturally erect nipples.


After warding off Erichs gaze that seemed to ask what I was going to do to a little girls nipples, human voices spoke softly.


againwillmy voice


Butsunmaybehelp


I dismount, give Schwartzs bulging veiny p.e.n.i.s a kick and then follow the voice.


I ended up finding a grate at the base of an old warehouse.


When I crouch down and peek inside, several eyes look back at me from the darkness.


Oh. There are no more insects. Its safe to come out.


The glowing eyes blinked as if digesting the meaning of my words.


And then


Aaaaaaaaah!!!


Multiple footsteps can be heard running up stairs from underground and then the exit located on the floor was kicked open.


Uwaaaaaaan!! Humans!!


Six women and two children burst out.


I dont know how long theyve been hiding, but all of them are covered in soot and their cheeks are considerably sunken. They run to whoever is closest and hug them with a beaming smile.


Fueeeeeh!!


A young woman also happens to jump in my arms.


When I return the embrace and squeeze her a.s.s, she doesnt reject my touch and rubs her face against my chest.


There there, it was scary, huh? Everythings alright now.


The other soldiers, realizing the women dont mean harm, also hug back and pat their heads with troubled expressions.


You did well to survive. Im impressed.


News came from the palace, telling us to crawl in the bas.e.m.e.nt and be as quiet as possible. But this is the only bas.e.m.e.nt in the villageeveryone else locked themselves in their houses but the screamsthe screams every night


Fumu, this village is close to Poron.


I wonder if South Yuguria has taken measures of their own.


Regardless, only eight people out of the villages population of a hundred survived.


I cant deny that its like a drop in the ocean.


Gyaaa! Monster!


My hand grabs the handle of the Dual Crater on reflex, but I smile wryly when I discover what the scream is a reaction to.


Negative. I do not fall under the definition of a monster.


Noooooo, her voice is coming from her crotch! And for some reason, the sound is coming from both sides!


The one accused of being a monster was Tikuku.


She is now wearing a hollowed out pumpkin in place of her head with holes cut out for eyes, a nose and a mouth.


Casie, whose body has now become nine parts, was actually the one who carved the pumpkin and its a temporary solution that makes her less creepy.


She apparently doesnt have spare parts for her head, so a new one needs to be made. Ill have to think about how to do that.


Anyways, the possibility of survivors being underground has increased. We should continue along while searching for them.


A few days later


I see a city ahead. Based on the map, that must be Poron.


Celia says, standing on top of Schwartz.


Now that weve finally arrived, it seems a bit dull to be the home base of the enemy.


I comment as I glance at the city.


Poron has the basic structures necessary for a capital city like city walls, turrets, and a royal castle.


But they are all small and lacking impact.


It cant be helped. Poron was originally the capital of the small country Polpo. In Goldonia, it would be the fifth largest city or maybe lower.


Erich explains as he carefully observes the city.


Every single building thought to contain soldiers have been destroyed in all the cities weve seen so far.


However, Porons city walls or forts dont appear to have major damage. On the other hand, there are no lookouts in sight or cannons staring at us.


Is the city ravaged or still alive, I cant tell from far away.


What do you think?


I cant say until I see it for myself.


Leopolts eyes dont stray from the city either.


Alright, well check it out.


Stay alert while advancing. Those carrying women, leave them behind.


Soldiers grumble while the women express their concern.


On the way to Poron, we recovered a certain number of survivors from cellars and dry wells.


Most of them were women and children, likely as a result of prioritizing the limited s.p.a.ce for those who should be protected.


Someone who looked like a fat village chief was in the mix as well though.


Without exception, those we rescued were gripped by an abnormal amount of terror, and they clung to us, happy to see humans and not caring whether we were allies or enemies.


Needless to say, marching soldiers starved of s.e.x would not refuse a womaneven from an enemy nation.


I look over at Yakov.


Hey, let go now. Ill make love to you after checking the city. Kuku, Ill give you lots.


Uuu, why do I always seem to be captured by thugs I thought I had learned my lesson from the last guywho was so rough and treated me like his plaything.


Yakov steals the lips of the visibly uncouth woman, sticks his hand in her crotch and then pushes her aside.


She glares at his back in frustration, but her eyes are love-struck.


I turn to Erich next.


Please be safecome on, you too.


Mmbe safe


The women Erich waved to were a mother in her mid thirties and her 16 or 17 year old daughter.


There are countless kiss marks on the mothers neck and the daughters gait is unnatural.


Eating both a mother and her daughter is truly intolerable as a n.o.ble. I envy you.


Neighing draws my attention to Schwartz who is walking away from a mare with his head held high as usual.


That horse was saved because she ran to the end of a cave.


Isnt it nice that everyone found suitable partners?


Sekrit jokes as she tries to stifle her laughter.


A tongue nervously licks my arm.


Itll be fine. I will be back soon.


My partner ishalf snake.


In terms of species, she is in the same family as lamia, but her top half is that of a snake and her bottom half is human.


Honestly, I wasnt sure about her, but since people around me were saying thanks for saving them, saying how they didnt want to separate and doing it like crazy, I embraced her out of pride.


She was surprisingly pleasant, and her especially large mouth and technique with her long tongue was incomparable.


Pss, psspervert.


Monsterpsst.


demon lord.


Oh shut up!


I yell at the soldiers to erase their gossiping and run off toward Poron.


Say something if youre alive! War is the least of your worries!!


I stand in front of the gate and shout loudly.


I remain vigilant, somewhat expecting an arrow to come flying if the city happens to contain survivors, but I dont get a response.


Alright, do it.


At Erichs instructions, the siege team bang on the gate with hammers.


Despite the loud racket, n.o.body replied.


The demotion continued for 20 minutes and the gate collapsed.


No resistance


There are no signs that the insects invaded either.


Erich and I exchange looks and then let the cavalry run throughout the city.


Even if they were planning an ambush, theyd have to react if we do this.


The cavalry let out battle cries as they charged into the city, threw rocks at a few houses to make noise, circled the perimeter and then returned.


No enemy soldiers or civilians in sight!


strange.


Erich puts a hand on his chin and thinks.


If the enemy were aiming for a surprise attack, they should have rushed out by now.


The cavalry ran all over the city. If pots of oil were thrown, they could have burned down the city.


The city isnt damaged enough to be attacked by insects.


If people shut themselves in and fended off the insects, it doesnt make sense that the turrets or city wall would be unscathed.


Moreover, its unbelievable that not a single human skin was found.


This is a report from the scouts. The northern citadel as well as the palace are deserted!


That meansthey ran?


Erich mutters.


I look at Leopolt.


South Yuguria does not have a stronghold other than Poron. Abandoning this place is equivalent to abandoning the nation. Of course, if their own lives are more important, escape is also a realistic option.


I think back to the last time I saw Wilhelminas face.


She did not have the expression of someone who was going to run away.


Lets take a break and think.


I drop the bucket in a nearby well.


Empty?


I click my tongue after the bucket makes a hollow clunk sound from hitting the bottom.


I walk to a different well and throw the bucket down again.


empty again?


That is when Leopolt and I look at each other.


Its not unusual for a poor village to have an unattended well, but this is a full-fledged city with walls.


Its unthinkable for two or three wells to be left dry.


Celia, come look.


Right!


Celia hangs onto the rope of the bucket and jumps down the well, kicking the walls as she smoothly descends to the bottom.


Ive reached the bottom! There is no moisture, let alone waterah, a grate on the side! I feel wind coming from it!


An air ventif all the wells in this area are like this, then the center is


Leopolt connects the wells with an imaginary line and follows it to the end to a certain building.


At first glance, it appears to be a large one-story building acting as a supply warehouse.


After rummaging through the inside, I found a crack in the floor.


Here?


I strike the floor hard with my Keravnos.


The floor splits open loudly, revealing a big metal door.


I see, the entire city crawled underground?


Erich knocks on the metal door.


This sizethere wont be a measly ten or twenty people like before. Lets wrench it open right away. Itll probably take some time to


Pochi, do it.


Pochi, who broke through the roof and flew in, digs his claws into the door.


The metal door dents greatly and then falls inward from its own weight.


Lets go.



I step over the crooked door and proceed inside.


The top bra.s.s of South Yuguria, including Wilhelmina, is believed to be in this underground s.p.a.ce, but


An intense smell of death wafted in my nose.

The purpose of utilizing Lorem Ipsum is that it has a pretty much typical appropriation of letters, instead of utilizing 'Content here, content here', making it look like meaningful English. Numerous work area distributing bundles and page editors presently use Lorem Ipsum as their default model content, and a quest for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many sites still in their outset.
