Keith Aygrid (1). His real lineage was that of Aygrid Viscount House. As the second son of the house, Keith who was 2 years older than Claude, has been chosen to be Claude’s attendant even before Claude was born.

Keith was 5 years old when Claude was suspected to be the Demon King by people around him. It started when Claude used magic to save Keith who was drowning at the garden. After that, when Cedric was born, the battle for the throne reached to the point in which Claude’s life was being targeted; and then, it came to light that the monsters had been protecting him every time such things happened.

(Perhaps, the Royal Family was trying to hide that fact about Claude-sama……I don’t know whether they were thinking about their reputation or doing it out of love though) [Irene]

Because Claude had saved Keith’s life, the matter about him being the Demon King could no longer be concealed. Surely, Keith blamed himself for that. That’s why even now, he was still serving Claude faithfully.

It was a very human way of doing things even when he was serving the Demon King against the Demon King’s feelings himself.

She was glad that she mentally took a note when she was listening to Claude’s story about that plot of land that was bought for the sake of the monsters at that time. There was no way that they could buy the entire of the Earl’s territory cheaply. For the sake of buying that, the immature Keith sold the monsters to earn capitals. He probably selected the monsters by asking the monsters for assistance to come along with him or something. If it was to be done outside the barrier, then Claude won’t be able to notice it.

However, the thing that should only happen once, had become something that continuously happened.

If he refuses to do so, the plot of land will be taken away. He also had no one he was able to consult with regarding the matter about him being tricked. He was struggling on his own. It was either sacrificing a small handful of monsters or saving a great number of monsters; he was to bear the choice that had been imposed on him all by himself.

The transaction continued since there was a profit even on the human side. That was for the matter of Lilia who had awakened as the Maiden of the Holy Sword to come out.

(……The rest is exactly as Keith had said. There was no need to fear the monsters if the Demon King is gone) [Keith]

If the Demon King is gone, the monsters won’t flock together. Their intelligence will decline, and generally, the harmful monsters will be degraded to only small pests. It will be easy for humans to use their devices and wisdom and send several people in charge to hunt them. Moreover, some parts from the monsters can be sold with an extremely high price. If that’s the case, it will be inevitable for those people to come out with a concession that it is better to eliminate the Demon King because the Demon King will vanish with a blow from the Holy Sword.

However, the Holy Sword’s existence is to fight the monsters, so it won’t be effective on humans. While he is still a human, Claude can’t be defeated by the Holy Sword. If that’s the case, it will be preferable if he truly ends up becoming a monster. Those are the details of the Demon King awakening event.

In the game, Keith shouted that it was because he wanted money. With a scornful smile on his face, he had said to Claude that it was precisely because of the profitable business that he served Claude; he definitively stated that he didn’t feel a debt of gratitude or the likes towards Claude.

But, that was certainly a gentle lie.

『You know, I’ve been thinking。……Maybe Claude-sama will be happier if he becomes a monster』(Keith)

Keith said that this morning when he succumbed to the remuneration offered by Irene. His choice was essentially the decision of what Claude should do. If he could at least make Claude carry that feeling of guilt and leave behind that feeling while he remains as a human, he would soon harbor hatred towards all humans and thus becoming a monster; certainly, that was what the game’s Keith had desired.

In the game’s reality, Claude had killed Keith with his own hands in his fit of anger, then he felt despair over humans and thus transformed into a dragon.

In the game situation, especially in Cedric’s capture route, Lilia was involved in helping Cedric who was given a task by the emperor to resolve the matter regarding illicit trade involving the monsters before his graduation; they had suspected Keith and informed it to Claude. Cedric and the others, together with the rear guards tried to apprehend Keith at the dealings scene; however, Keith ended up being killed by Claude in their encounter. And then, Claude, who ended up transforming into a dragon because of his despair over humans, being told「I will end your sorrow」by the heroine, then the heroine annihilated him by using the Holy Sword.

By the way, if Claude’s capture route was to appear in the second playthrough of the game, thereupon, Claude would be restrained by the humans. Claude who was hurt by Keith would be told 「You have me」by the heroine when she healed him, thus he turned back into a human. And then, Claude who decided to live together with Lilia, in order to avoid confrontation with Lilia who was the Maiden of Holy Sword, would abandon his position as the Demon King. He would seal all of the monsters inside the World of Demons and went on to live as a human.

Irene who had regained all of her memories about that situation could only say one thing.

「What a useless heroine……!!」

The moment she was aware of her suspicion towards Keith, she should have carefully considered on how Claude would react. In addition, there were some actions that she should take. Speaking about what Lilia did in the game, she flaunted Keith’s betrayal to Claude and hurt him in the process; and yet, she did things like saying「I’ll stop your sorrow」then annihilated him or saying「You have me」, then made Claude abandoned everything, or doing everything as much as she pleased. And, Irene completely hated the situation from the bottom of her heart.

Moreover, while trying to find a way to wed Lilia the Maiden of Holy Sword who was incompatible with monsters, who would’ve thought that Claude who wanted to protect the monsters, would choose to abandon the monsters instead; Irene felt a sense of disbelief towards his answer.

(I definitely won’t let Claude-sama choose that sort of future)

If it was Irene, she would prepare everything that Claude wishes for.

She also won’t let him abandon the monsters. She won’t let him kill his precious attendant either.

For that reason, it was necessary to settle all the necessary groundwork. That’s what a battle was like.

「――I told you to go home」(Claude)

Just when Claude’s voice was reverberating throughout the abandoned castle, the door opened by itself and there was a blizzard along the hallway.

  1. Kvetha says:

    Thank you very much for the chapters!

  2. Shin_Itsuka says:

    useless heroine and definitely a B*tch
    thank for the double release!!!

    1. Ombre Longue says:

      Well, the think is, that if you cute down and analyse most of the story, the MC (male or female) are of this kind : and their “héroic deeds” nothing more than murder cheaply painted like “rightfull and fair” by the author.
      It’s in fact for that i heavily despise and loath most of the xanxia, and chinese cheap novel because, most of the time, the “great mc” are like this b*tch of Lilia … in other more : monster and selfich b*stards dressed as upright and good people.

      1. tbf, they weren’t wrong in portraying MC a.k.a the hero of their story to be a dickhead on power trip. The true definition of Hero is someone who did something no one else could accomplish, their attitude and personality notwithstanding. There’s a reason why heroes who saved people are called Heroes of Justice instead of a plain hero.

  3. Annerli says:

    If only Lilia was just useless, she destroys everything around her. All that while thinking that she’s right!
    Hope Claude will explain even better that she looks the best from the other side of the door.

  4. Sera says:

    Alot of these otome games have shiity plots and and and wouldnt sell at all in real life. There more like wattapad stories about fallin in love with serial killers written by middle schoolers with one dimensional characters

  5. Kalmaegi says:

    Wow that was such a trash route huh. Thankfully we have Irene now, the Demon Queen.

    1. gabygabela says:

      The best Queen! !! Irene-sama

  6. ILoveVillains says:

    I really love Irene’s strong character, even when she is at a disadvantage, she will try to save everything and not settle for a mediocre solution like that heroine bitch.

  7. Malacat says:

    What a shitty heroine. I know those games are about playing right so the capture targets fall for them but all Clauds routs seem like a loss even when he lives.

    1. Ori says:

      If you think about it even the Princes route is pretty shitty for him. He gets the “heroine” but loses his biggest supporter in Irene, loses the business due to his own lack and the flowers lack of skill, and who knows how much Reputation in those two losses. Oh, and he may have lost the support of the nobles too due to breaking the engagement for a commoner, and even if her father is a hyper S he still would probably hold it against him for taking away his toy.

      Hell, can’t even say if OG Irene was still in love with the princeling or driven so hard into a corner by her dad and had no outs.

      Truely that game was perfect little story for the princess and death to literally everyone else in the process.

  8. Thifa says:

    I think Keith’s name is more like Ygritte than Aygrid? Like that one character in Game of Thrones. Though I dunno if it can be used as family name… Well, there are many cases where name that seems for first names are actually family names… What do you think?

  9. tia says:

    ( ̄ー ̄) who hates that thing(lil*a)even more now ?! ME ME MEEEEEE (ノ○Д○)ノ===┠ hurray for Irene hurraaaaay ୧⍢⃝୨ *throws confetti at Irene*…
    *throws an exorcist at that thing *←~∋(。Ψ▼ー▼)∈

    1. tia says:

      thank you for the chap here you go (ʘ‿ʘ)ノ✿
      – protecting him every time such(thing) happened. >>things
      – had become something that continuously (happens)>>happened (she’s talking past tense)
      -he was to bear the choice that had been imposed(to him)all >>on him
      -That was for the matter of Lilia (had awakened) as the Maiden (of Holy) Sword >>who had awakened../..of the holy
      -he could at least make Claude(carries)that feeling of guilt >>carry
      – that feeling while(remains) as a human>>he remains

      1. tia says:

        so game Keith wanted Claude to leave his feelings of guilt (about the monsters or killing him that isn’t clear though) as a human cuz he thinks he’d be happier as a monster.. poor Keith (╥_╥) it’s all because of that thing named Lilia *pass’s out* ←~∋(。Ψ▼ー▼)∈

  10. Anonymous says:

    Thanks for chapter.
    Yeah she useless, bitch, trash and idiot heroine who only thinking about herself. In game if she want save him, you must say to became mediator between human and monster.
    She have power to stop monster so human side have no choice other than obverse their situation. Truly an idiot.

  11. VenRayne says:

    I hate those kind of endings in otome game, Its not satisfying and always makes me feel empty because I thought it would be a good ending .

  12. Summer says:

    I almost never play any otome game but is that really how shitty the story goes? I feel my brain dying

    I wonder what made Claude sorta angry (what with the blizzard and all) at the end? Did he overhear the conversation? Oh gosh how’s Irene gonna handle that

    Thanks for the dual update!

  13. Sinag says:

    Thanks again for the ud!

    Rooting for Irene! Dammn, cannot wait what their plan would be!

  14. DOH says:
