CHAPTER 41

Novel Raw: 41 || Manga: I’m a Villainous Daughter, so I’m going to keep the Last Boss || Manga Raw: 悪役令嬢なのでラスボスを飼ってみました

A sudden gust of wind rushed into the room. Perhaps Cedric wasn’t able to scream since he was at his wits’ end. He tried to roll off the bed――but, he was immediately blown away by the wind causing him to collide with the wall, and he completely collapsed from that.

「How, dare, you」(Claude)

With a snap, she had a feeling something just made a sound. Claude covered half of his face and took a step back from her. That hand had started to be covered by closely packed scales.

Irene finally realized what’s happening.

(The Demon King awakening event!We should have managed to avoid it, right? Why……Eh, me!?)

She recalled that Beelzebub called her as the precious woman. That was, in other words――。

「Cedric!By any chance……」(Max)

「Lilia!Bring out the Holy Sword, quickly!He’s becoming a monster, we did it……!」(Cedric)

Cedric screamed those words at Lilia who just turned up from the partially destroyed wall. Irene was dumbfounded after she managed to grasp the current situation. Then,  she immediately came to her senses.

(If Claude-sama gets mad and turns into a monster、those three will hit the damn lottery……!)

If Lilia were to defeat the Demon King, she would be the Saint who had devoted herself for the salvation of her Empire. At that point, not even the authority could pressure her. No one could tell her that she was unsuitable to be the Empress and so forth. Rather, I think that everyone would be clamoring to serve upon the Empress.

「Nnnー!Nnnー!」(Irene)

Dragged into the whirlwind, Irene frantically tried to free herself from the bed and raised her voice towards Almond.

When he noticed that, Almond turned up to where she was, and the first thing he did was repeatedly pecking on the handcuffs. She didn’t think that his beak would be useful in this situation, but as expected from a monster. Almond vigorously swung his beak downwards, and with a poke, he successfully crushed the handcuffs.

With her freed hands, Irene untied the handkerchief gagging her mouth.

「What have, you done, towards Irene」(Claude)

Meanwhile, with the sound of glass shattering, Claude transformation continued. As if his existence as a human being was being eradicated, the scales on his arm were spreading; his nails were growing, and his hand was transforming into a forelimb.

「Ah――Aah、ahh」(Claude)

「Claude-sama!I’m fine, so please calm down!」(Irene)

Their eyes met. Claude’s big red eyes were wide open, and he took a step back.

「Don’t、look」(Claude)

Claude’s feet stopped. He made that gesture as if he was ashamed of himself.

「……Please don’t, look at, me。I want, to save, you, and yet」(Claude)

「Demon King」(Lilia)

That voice reverberated like a sacred bell to repel the demons.

And then, a light was shining. It was the radiance of the Holy Sword. The Saint’s sword that would condemn the Demon King.

「How pitiful。It feels painful, isn’t it? To live by suppressing your emotions. You can’t even get mad to your heart’s content when your precious woman was being hurt… That sort of thing isn’t a human thing to do」

The Saint’s smile was filled with both purity and cruelty. When Lilia aimed the tip of the sword towards Claude, Irene ran towards him without hesitation.

「I’ll end your sorrow――!」

Perhaps, the light came from the morning sun or it could also be the sacred light that would defeat the Demon King.

Before Irene’s eyes, Lilia’s big eyes further widened.

In Lilia’s hand, there was a Holy Sword. And then, about half of that Holy Sword was currently buried inside Irene’s body.

「――It’s my fault for underestimating you lots。I’m so stupid。To think that I didn’t realize that I’ve been the target all this time…。And, this isn’t something that Keith-sama can laugh at」

「Let……L-let go!」(Lilia)

Lilia tried to pull the Holy Sword out of Irene’s body, but Irene had Lilia’s wrists firmly grabbed by her hands. Irene had no intention of letting her go.

「Wh、what are you thinking? The Holy Sword won’t be effective to any humans……!」(Lilia)

「What on earth, are you saying?……This feels horribly painful……!! Are they even telling us the truth when they said this sword is not going to hurt humans at all?」

She wondered if people were to be stabbed by this sword, will they be hurting this much? If she were to spit blood, would it be easier for her to breathe?

However, she needs to smile. Don’t give the enemy even an ounce of sense of superiority by making them think they got her and so forth. Her policy didn’t change thoroughly.

「Hey。……I wonder what will happen if the Holy Sword stabs a human being?」(Irene)

「Huh!? Wh-what would happen you asked? That kind of thing…」(Lilia)

「And, I wonder will the Saint who stabbed another human being with the Holy Sword be disqualified as the Maiden of Holy Sword?――And then, what would happen, if, the enemy who was stabbed, was related, to the Maiden of Holy Sword by blood?」(Irene)

Irene’s body wasn’t actually stabbed by the Holy Sword――Rather, the sword was half buried inside of her body.

Both of Lilia’s eyes widened. As expected, this woman isn’t stupid.

「――I won’t let you kill Claude-sama。And, I will take the Holy Sword」(Irene)

Irene planted both of her feet on the ground, then she pulled both of Lilia’s arms towards herself.

There was an explosion of light. The Holy Sword was slowly being buried in Irene’s body. However, she won’t be drawing the sword out of her body after this. The reason was the intense pain Irene felt from when the sword entered her body.

「Ce-Cedric!Max!Do something about Irene-sama!」(Lilia)

「Almond!」(Irene)

At the sound of his name being called out, Almond and his comrades immediately flew towards Cedric and Max. Almond and the others were not attacking both Max and Cedric by all means, but Irene couldn’t help smiling at the monsters’ effort to cover the two men’s field of vision.

「You’re insane, doing something like this……!」(Lilia)

Irene’s body was still glued to Lilia when almost all but the handle of the sword was buried into the former’s body. Irene was smiling while a cold sweat was residing at the tip of her nose.

「The main character in this story… is me」(Irene)

Gasping, Irene thrust away Lilia’s body from her.  With her own hands, Irene completely buried the Holy Sword into her own body. Irene stifled her scream and swallowed the intense pain――then suddenly, the pain faded away.

Lilia who had lost the Holy Sword, as if frightened, shook her head while taking a step back. But, Irene chose to ignore her. She then turned around to look at Claude.

There was a gigantic jet black dragon underneath the dimly lit sky. His beautiful red eyes were widened in blank amazement. Inside that jeweled like eyes, Irene’s figure who was laughing easily was reflected in it.

「Oh my……Claude-sama、you look quite dashing」(Irene)

「……」(Dragon Claude)

「I think it’s better if I offer to keep you as my pet with the way you look right now。After all, it seems like married life is going to be difficult this way, isn’t it?」

As she said that, she softly leaned her body on the chest covered with hard scales. Irene looked down.

「Thank you very much for coming to save me。I ended up crying because I was relieved。Bad person。You have successfully made me cry, right?So, you must take the responsibility now」

It’s alright. She had the self-confidence. There’s no reason she can’t do what Lilia in the game can do.

「Now、please change back to your human form if you love me」

It was a startling break of dawn; as if the magic was being broken, the scales were smashed up, then turned into a light.

Opening her eyes slowly, Irene realized that the King with black hair, red eyes, and his devilishly beautiful features she hated to some degree was embracing her closely.

    Sword NTR. Irene is truly the worst. I cry bitter tears for the corruption of the poor holy sword.

    Okay but seriously I guess this plan makes more sense than the one we heard before which would just get Cedric murdered by Irene.

    I’m not crying. Not at all

      i’m not crying either….

  4. Avatar Annerli says:

    What a great plan they had. Not.
    And I feel like Cedric had it way too easy, fainting from the start. He should suffer what everything he tried to do.
    Lilia, on the other hand. Oh boy, no holy sword, no future as a queen, no finance even, it seems. Good luck to you, sweetie~
    My girl Irene outdone herself this time, not only recovering so fast but even claiming a sword! Now nothing could bring these two down (maybe, possibly, hopefully). Demon King and the only thing that can threaten him, Ire.. I mean, Holy sword.

    1. Avatar Angie Tabone says:

      I am highly anticipating Cedric’s future suffering in the chapters to come 😉

    Lilia: the odds were calculated, but boy do I suck at maths.

    Also wonder how dear Cedric is going to treat his number one with her sword taken…
    Oh and Claude, this is the point where you make it so that tactic *can’t* take her away from you conprende?

    1. Avatar Malacat says:

      Irine: it was a gamble but the cards were counted, marked, and stacked before hand.

    Wow Irene is hardcore

  11. Avatar Naine says:

    This is amazing!!!! I’m so happy!

  12. Avatar Jay says:

    If Cedric and the rest aren’t punished for this bullshit, I’m going to just drop this. Openly raping the daughter of a duke? That gets you disinherited in almost every case. Especially when she’s from such a powerful family.

    1. he was never going to rape her, they just planning to get claude mad thats why they do it, that boy is too smitten with lilia after all

      1. Avatar Lasika says:

        Even then, that’s a shitty thing to do. Also, as I understood, they were serious about having Irene as the second princess consort so she can handle all queenly duties, since apparently Lilia doesn’t cut the mustard. I think that even if Cedric was besotted with Lilia, he knew the only way to strengthen his standing was to have a semi-competent queen, so forcing himself on Irene was kind of a guarantee. Claude getting cheesed off was just the cherry on top. So yeah, I’m sure Cedric forcing himself on Irene was not an act.
        I do not know how if Irene’s dad is fully good or not, given he was willing to disown her if she failed, but I would be disappointed if he didn’t atleast stand up for his daughter once he’s made aware of what Cedric did. Wishful thinking, but I would really like Claude to call out on the humans on their monstrous acts.
        Thanks for the multiple chapter releases, I am looking forward to more ^_^

        1. Avatar Malacat says:

          It’s screwed up that Cedric and Mark still think Lillua is sweet and innocent. Those two arnt smart enough to think to force Irine to be a concubine and a puppet queen, while at the same time enraging Claud enough to change and then kill him making them all heroes and securing Cedris spot as future king. That had to be all Lillia. She is a total sociopath.

  13. Avatar WitchWarren says:

    It’s like Christmas!!!

  14. Avatar Malacat says:

    Thanks for the mass release your the best.

    Irine is truly OP in every way. The game developers lost out making her a throw away villain rather than the mc. A shitty mc like Lilly can only bring half hearted and bad ends. I’d be fun to play a game with a mc like Irine. Every route would be a power win.

  15. Avatar TheTanJar says:

    Irene is badass!
    Suck it Cedric Lilia and dumb-a Max

    1. Avatar TheTanJar says:

      Too excited earlier!!

      Thank you for all the chapters! Love this story sooooo much

  16. Honestly? This story is great. I absolutely enjoy Irene’s character and Claude, especially their relationship. Also, good on Irene to save the world through her sheer willpower. Also, it’s kind of cute how Irene is acting towards Claude and how they are now bound through Irene tears. kind of poetic and romantic, given how both are interesting.

  17. Avatar Ryss says:

    Thanks 4 this chapter- prevented the blood pressure from exploding…

    Somehow … everyone in the comments seems to be just angry at the asshole C and the bitch L (-won’t bother writing out their names cuz those maggots aren’t worth the effort-) but how come nobody seems to question the fu**er M and his behavior?
    I would love to know his fate- death by beheading is too fast and easy… how about some nice torture over a few months that end the existence of this waste of flesh….?? ♡
    Too bad this isn’t R18 for situations like this….

    Thx 4 the hard work ^^/

    1. Avatar Key says:

      I know!! I feel like he’s the worst one of all because he was literally her childhood friend… like what kind of garbage juice human being do you have to be to be able to consent to Anything like that (esp to someone you used to care for)???? Burn them all

    2. Avatar SaMu says:

      1. Give him a sex change.
      2. Make him dress like a girl.
      3. Throw him in a goblin’s nest.

      1. Avatar Ryss says:

        Wow! Not bad.
        I like ur style there. Respect

    3. Avatar LegoTechnic says:

      No one is mad at Max because he has literally no development. He’s just there, like furniture. A mook, basically the background muscle. It’s really kind of sad, given he was supposedly a childhood friend of Irene and Cedric, but the fact is he just has no backstory, and all his appearances have been as a thoughtless goon.

      It’s like getting angry at the tree that’s blocking your sunlight.

      1. Avatar Ryss says:

        Thats why idiots cut down 50 years old trees in their new bought lawns…

  18. Avatar key says:

    thanks for the mass release, I hope you know we all greatly appreciate the work you put into translating this wonderful story!! idk what I would’ve done if I had to suffer through that suspense chapter by chapter lol

  19. Avatar nakakure says:

    Thanks for chapter my lady. Whoa Irene Gamble is scary. Cedric can’t become Emperor anymore even if Claude didn’t become crown prince, who will believe to some prince that try to r**e his subject and incompetent with spuse that really incompetent.

    It will be quite funny and fatefull if the founder of this kingdom are actually demon king and maiden of holy sword.

  20. Avatar F_J says:

    Huh? She could do that? :O Apparently she could… Wow the power of true love pft
    Many thanks

  21. Avatar nakakure says:

    I wonder if Claude and Irene will consumate their marriage early. To replace bad memories with the good one

    1. Avatar nakakure says:

      Umm irene clothes and Claude clothes are still intact right

      1. Avatar krysstof says:

        yeah right, one is shedding scales after a “hulk” transformation, there probably isn’t a hot pants hanging, and the other has her boobs out
        nothing will happen right

      2. Avatar LegoTechnic says:

        …a good question. Irene’s top was cut open at least, and Claude likely Hulked out of whatever he was wearing… It’s a wonder if he remembered to magic himself some slacks when he changed back.

        1. Avatar Summer says:

          That’s what the manga is for! This part drawn in the manga will definitely be gorgeous!

  22. Avatar Shallen says:

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one that cried at the end

    God this two better be more lovey-dovey in the next chapters I LOVE THEM SO MUCH
    And I hope that the san-baka would end up in the most horrible way, I honestly waited for Claude to kill them as a dragon then Irene manges to stop him but oh well this is a shoujo that won’t do…

    So now the three stooges turned from second prince and holy maiden to idiot prince who gave up his duchess fiance for a baron…and that one guy max. A demon lord and a holy maiden…I ship that lol. Almond for best man?

    Oh em gee!! My heart! I was smiling happily and gigling while reading this. I just can’t wait for the next chapter. Thank you translator for all the effort.

  29. Avatar krysstof says:

    question, next chapter is pretty much this “arc” conclusion if we look at the raws chaptering

    but does anyone know if this part is = volume 1 of the LN, or if the LN is part 1 and part 2?

    1. Avatar Empress says:

      Since there are 4 volumes of LN, and 4 parts of the WN, I’m guessing that part 1 and the next three side stories going to be the first volume and so forth.

  30. Avatar LegoTechnic says:

    Just a thought, but if Irene is the maiden of the holy sword now, does that mean Claude’s magic will have reduced effect on her like it did with Lilia?

  31. Thanks for chapter.
    Yeah! I don’t see this conclusion. Irene obtained both holy sword and demon king.

  32. Avatar Boartank says:

    LETS GET THIS BREAD!

  33. Avatar Anonymous Coward says:

    Woooow. That was awesome. I mean, not the chained to the bed part. That was incredibly disturbing. Made me retch. But everything after that was … well, awesome. Bwahahaha. Time for the idiot trio to exit stage left. Hope they get their comeuppance.

    Thanks for the translation and the burst release. If I had read these last few chapters one at a time with days in between I’d probably have gone nuts. I’m very grateful that it didn’t come to that. So, please accept my heartfelt gratitude.

    Thank you for the bulk chapters and ending it here in a sweet note! I take it this is where part one of the story ends, right? This story doesn’t quite wnd here yet, right?? I hope so,

    After all Irene is the star in these parts, but I’d love to see Claude getting some action next, where he’ll shine too.

    Good chapter!

    im so happy beyond words right now the j**k prince and his group still didn’t die though and that makes me sour but im so so so happy for Irene and Claude though it’snot a fluffy confession but it’s something way better A HEART WRENCHING STUNNING CONFESSION (ಥ﹏ಥ) (TдT) when i first started reading this honestly i didn’t think i’d love it so much im soooo glad i gave it a try i hope there’s more i really want to see the end if the three stooges but must importantly THE SHIP HAS SAILED AT LAST THUS WE SHALL ANTICIPATE THEIR SWEET INTERACTIONS WITH ALL OUR HEARTS HOHOHOHO ( ̄ω ̄) but didn’t they say before that the demon king is incompatible with the sword? what would happen now that Irene has it ?

      thank you for this mass release im really thankful you made it one if not …well i don’t know how to say it but it would’ve made me explode from suspense by these past few cliffhangers i don’t know how would i take it (i probably wont (ㆆᴗㆆ)had it been a cliffhanger contentiously for three chapters ..it would’ve been a nightmare so empress-sama i wholeheartedly thank you from the bottom of my heart for not making this a cliffhanger festival (T▽T)

    Its good if Cedric to be disown and the King will still marry him with Lilia then make them a commoner and throw them to the slums. Claude should be the crown prince and engage with Irene afyer this event.

    Whooooooo I didnt even sleep just to catch up and Im so satisfied. The freaking cliff hanger tho. Arrrrrrrrrggggg.

    Cedric, Lilia & Max needs to be prosecuted for their crimes. Gahd we need justice for our Irene, for all the things that they’ve done to her, especially that attempted rape and for planning a assassination for Claude.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong. All along with this situation, Irene was half-naked, wasn’t she? Because Cedric cut her clothes in last chapter and that was why Claude got angree, right? OMG 😳😳😳😳 kyaaa~a×2

    Irene, the hero in her broken armor. (lol)

    1. Avatar krysstof says:

      yep… but no
      he cut the “string and the cloth binding her breast”, I would assume he cut “the lace of her bodice”. I recheck previous chapter, and even if she was playing around on rooftop with Bel nothing is said on her attire, I assume she was wearing a “normal” dress
      then he “tore off the cloth around her neck”… if I could read japanese I would have check that statement to get a clearer picture and understand what that really meant. it probably means the top part only, and she is still somewhat decent, it’s still a shoujo story… even if she got slapped around, that bothered me a bit so “well played author”, the feeling were conveyed.
      Her being topless would make the following sword scene much more epic and the final embrace too but i guess we will have to wait for the manga to see what the author had decided

      1. Avatar krysstof says:

        力任せに首回りの服の生地が引き裂かれる, litteraly I see force, neck, clothe and torn/rip, so yeah, nothing to say, I see her bodice open, and a bit of cloth torn

            don’t worry, even the author didn’t know the name lol “the cloth that bind the chest”… could have been a corset though, but a bodice has more of a casual feeling (again jumping on roof at night you don’t wear a party dress 🙂 )

  49. Avatar sayume says:

    This was actually really good. That resolution is very suiting for Irene. She’s strong-willed, she can keep her bearings even in crazy situations and is almost too confident in herself. I can’t think of a better resolution to this conflict than having her plunder the holy sword with willpower alone and to have Claude confirm his feelings to her in such a proud though candid manner.

    I really have enjoyed Irene’s character so far; she feels pretty unique and has so much personality. She’s actually more suitable for the role of Demon King than Claude, I believe. XD
