Chapter 370: 370
After repelling the a.s.sa.s.sins, the attacks on the CL company, both tangible and intangible, stopped suddenly .
The Flitch company realized they attacked me and are probably panicking .
Meanwhile, I’m paying the price for what I did and getting lectured in the living room .
「We’re not talking about fairness for saving Claire-san! As a feudal lord, how could you expose yourself to danger like that!?」
「Aegir-sama is certainly strong, but fighting unnecessary battles will eventually lead to your death! Please don’t do this anymore!」
「It is our duty to keep Lord Hardlett from harm . However, if you jump into peril of your own will, there is not much we can do . Please be more careful from this day forward . 」
「I can’t say anything about fighting…… though it’s not good to go on a vacation alone with Claire-san . Nonna-san has had this terrifying aura around her since the morning, please do something about it . 」
I guess it’s a rather big deal if Myla and Celia are backing up Leopolt and Adolph .
It was a mistake not telling anybody aside from Claire .
Lastly, as I get blamed and soothe the crying Celia by brus.h.i.+ng her cheek, I was informed of a visitor .
Already? That was fast .
「It was an unbelievable act of disrespect, a failure, and truly inexcusable……」
The man in front of me who is bowing his head to the ground is apparently the head clerk and a family member of Flitch .
Myla yelled at him, asking why the owner didn’t come, and apparently he is sick in bed .
I don’t know if it’s true or not and everyone I ask doesn’t know, so I let it go .
More importantly, I need them to approve of Claire going independent .
「There’s no use complaining about what’s done . I also went on a cheating vacation so I don’t want to make any unnecessary fuss…… anyways, I’ll need to see an appropriate sign of your sincerity . 」
I deliberately drink alcohol and speak in a haughty tone . Woah, I leaned too far back and almost fell over .
Don’t laugh, Sekrit . Dammit, she only comes out of her room and she thinks there is something interesting to watch .
「Yes, something has been prepared . A sum of money as apology and also――」
I speak over the messenger .
「That’s fine, I just don’t want to see any of you in my territory again . Any interference will not be tolerated whatsoever . 」
The head clerk waits for me to finish with his head touching the ground .
As expected of a great merchant, he isn’t someone who simply prostrates himself .
「I cannot recognize Claire and her group after she violated the store’s trust . If by chance it doesn’t trouble Lord Hardlett and your a.s.sets, then……」
So he wants to continue the dispute with Claire if it doesn’t bother me .
I exaggerate and kick over the desk .
「Fool! What would you know when your holes for eyes can’t tell the difference between me or a mal prost.i.tute!? This isn’t a negotiation or even a request . It’s an order! If anything happens to the CL company, I will consider it your work and will report it to the kingdom along with the fact that you attacked me . You understand the relations.h.i.+p between Stura and Goldonia, right?」
I know it’s a cheap threat .
The head clerk closes his eyes and doesn’t say anything .
I can’t tell if he’s scared or angry .
「If you let Claire handle the rest and leave quietly, I will also forget about this matter . My wife told me not to make such a big deal of it . 」
This method was advice I reluctantly accepted from Adolph .
Apparently, giving him a way out will allow us to guide his actions better than completely cornering him .
Nonna being upset is undeniably true . Not to mention Sekrit fanned the flames and added oil to the fire .
That girl is always doing unnecessary things…… one day, I’ll pretend to slip on oil and screw her a.s.s .
「Neither our company nor our owner desires to make Lord Hardlett an enemy . I ask you to please resolve this amicably . 」
「I told you I would do so if you don’t do anything to her . I like women and fighting, but I hate questions and answers . 」
I make it easy to understand by playing the crude villain . It’s surprisingly easy to do .
「I think you’re simply acting on your instincts . 」
I sense a little spite in Myla’s words .
As I glare at him while thinking about such things, the head clerk nods with his eyes closed .
It’s the gesture for “I’ll consent for now, but I still have a plan” .
Whatever, it’s unlikely he can tear apart the relations.h.i.+p I have with Claire .
His intentions were established soon after, though that’s a different story .
After the act was over, I head to Claire’s room where I can enjoy some alcohol with her and Laurie .
「I really want to express――」
「I’m getting tired of hearing your thanks . Move on to another topic . 」
I smile and place a finger on Claire’s lips to stop her from going further .
She smiles bitterly and cuts short the sentence she started to say . Laurie happily pours a cup of alcohol for me .
「So you’re finally independent, free to act without compromise or a.s.sistance . That’s pretty big . 」
「I’m deeply touched . It felt like a long time……since that day you let me go, it felt like I was walking a different life . 」
Claire, who is sitting beside me, nonchalantly places a hand on my lap .
She doesn’t touch my private parts . She knows that things will get vulgar if she does .
「Can I act spoiled?」
「Sure, go ahead . 」
After getting my permission, Claire clings to my neck and Laurie clings to my thigh .
They open up their clothes as their bodies are pressed against me, not letting me see their underwear .
……the way Laurie is baring her skin, I’m guessing she’s not wearing any .
Presently, Claire is controlling most of the trade in the eastern region of Goldonia, including my territory .
Small and mid-level feudal lords don’t have any issues with that amount of influence .
That girl is currently nestling into me .
I can probably wave a finger and get her to lay down naked for me .
It’s an indescribable feeling of superiority .
「At that time, I didn’t think I would be with you like this again . 」
「Me neither . Fufu, my grudge towards Aegir-sama was also my driving force, you know? I would someday get my revenge and kill you . 」
Laurie stares intently at Claire and makes a curious face when our faces don’t change .
「Do you still resent me?」
I killed her man, and he was someone she accompanied for many years .
Although she reaped what she sowed by becoming a bandit, it’s hard to separate logic and emotions when a loved one gets killed .
It’s natural for her to resent me and it would clear the air if she declared outright how she feels .
「That was destiny . If I didn’t meet Aegir-sama and Ash was still alive, I would still be living like a bandit…… become the head of a well-known mercenary company, then probably meet my end after being subdued . 」
I let it slide that she didn’t affirm or deny my question .
「Bandits?? Ash? Errr, is this perhaps about a man in the past?」
Laurie can’t follow our conversation .
I’m sure Claire will explain little by little .
「Ash was concerned about my future most of all . If he was by himself, he could have become anything he wanted, yet he went along with me and became a bandit…… fufu, since embracing me, he never laid his hands on another woman, you know? Women who enticed him, the women of the villages he ransacked…… he had numerous chances to f.u.c.k . How comical for a bandit to stay virtuous . 」
Strangely, complex emotions of loneliness well up within me from somewhere as Claire reminisces .
「Ara, are we feeling jealous of a dead person? You were the one who decapitated him . 」
I spread my hands as if I lost to Claire’s unsarcastic speech .
「Eeh…… the Margrave-sama killed Claire-sama’s lover…… Claire-sama was a bandit…… uuu……」
Let us cease talking about old stories . Laurie can’t keep up .
「Hey Claire, are you really happy where you’re at now? I don’t know much about being a merchant, but you could have――」
This time Claire was the one who put a finger to my lips .
「I could have extended it more if I had Aegir-sama’s help . And then I could have used that extended time to grow my advantage . ……well, I think it was a good trigger . 」
「A trigger, huh?」
I draw Claire’s body toward me .
She realizes my intentions and clings to me tighter .
Aah, Laurie wasn’t the only one not wearing underwear .
「Yes . The time I aspired to become a merchant, I decided that I would become independent and have my own company…… for that sake, I bet everything on myself . 」
I remain silent, my hands continuing to rub Claire’s back and a.s.s .
「The trigger was surely the change in the main store’s att.i.tude and South Yuguria…… but I was determined to make things end this way . 」
I let her speak, focusing on her a.s.s instead .
Like a bad governor, I touch her body while a timid self comes out from somewhere within me .
「It was risky, maybe disproportionate to the benefits . Even so, I did it now . I can do it now . If I don’t do it now, I wouldn’t be able to do it forever . 」
Claire grins .
「I couldn’t push it to a later date . That was the meaning of my life after all . 」
I don’t say a single word . My hands keep fondling her .
I’m not craving her or trying to violate her .
I just have to do something to stay calm .
「Aegir-sama, your finger is in a dangerous spot…… if you could ease up a little…… aah, that’s my a.s.shole!」
She gambled and she won the bet .
If I told Leopolt, he might have had a better plan, and the timing might not have been optimal .
In her position, a plan relying heavily on my favoritism was likely extremely incomplete .
Regardless, she accomplished what she wanted .
「Um, your hand…… g-going in…… aauu!」
I look back at my own life .
I’m living a dream-like life since starting out as a slave kid .
I’ve become a Magrave of Goldonia, a nation with millions of people under its rule, and I can act all important .
The record Adolph brought up to me today regarding revenue had a big number like 200 000 .
In addition, I’m surrounded by beauties who love me from the bottom of their hearts, and I’m free to embrace them and impregnate them as I want, with even the maids in the mansion happy to spread their legs if I tell them to .
Yoguri even used my life as a basis for one of her plays .
Arrogant as it may be, I can say my life is a pretty big success .
「But I am not accomplished yet . 」
「I-I’m about to reach…… n-no good! Auaah!」
「Kyaa! Claire-sama…… really squirted everywhere . Eh? You’re going to continue?」
Claire bends backward and screams, which to me, is trivial at the moment .
What is my life goal?
There’s no way I forgot . It’s to become king and meet Lucy again .
It isn’t to live as a great n.o.ble with beautiful wives and pa.s.s on while surrounded by my children and grandchildren .
I didn’t forget .
I was simply caught up in how comfortable my life is now .
Nonna is gorgeous, Celia is cute .
Carla is amusing, Mel is attractive .
The other girls who have fallen in love with me are also wonderful in their own ways .
I am truly happy when surrounded by all of them . That’s why I’m immersed in joy right now .
「You’re amazing . You actually achieved it . 」
I take Claire’s hand and kiss the back of it .
It wasn’t a l.u.s.tful action, it was to show my respect . The current me doesn’t come close to her .
「Eh? What are you……」
Her time was now .
On the other hand, my time is not now .
Acting for the sake of my goal and running wildly is not the same thing .
What I have to do now is to resolve myself .
I close my eyes and exhale .
「Hm, alright . 」
I never had a sharp mind to begin with . Thinking long and hard does nothing for me .
Those few seconds I took were enough for me .
「Um…… did I do something to upset you?」
「I apologize if I bored you . 」
Claire and Laurie look at me with worried expressions .
I guess I was uncharacteristically making a serious thinking face .
「It’s nothing . Anyways, we should get started . 」
I lift up Claire and Laurie, one on each of my shoulders, and then throw them onto the prepared bed .
I then proceed to strip .

「Your body is really incredible……」
「Do you have any excuses for me?」
「No, none . 」
I am currently tied up in a dimly-lit room of a house within Rafen .
The person in front of me is a blonde beauty .
Contrary to her childlike appearance, she is actually a vampire princess who is several hundred years old .
「Not only did you break the promise of letting me suck your blood, you wandered off here and there……」
「I’m sorry . 」
I can only apologize at this point .
「Will you swear not to do it again?」
「No, I can’t . 」
If something happens, I have to go out on expeditions .
It would be insincere of me to promise something I can’t fulfill .
「I’ll pluck this off you . 」
「Spare me from that . Many women would be saddened . 」
Brynhildr places her hand on my crotch .
With her monstrous strength, she can literally rip me apart .
「Gosh, you…… can at least tell me where you’re going before you go…… what will I do if you die in a place where my eyes can’t reach…… I won’t be able to help . 」
Brynhildr mumbles .
She spoke softly enough that I couldn’t hear the last half . I’m afraid to say anything carelessly when she can tear my precious member whenever she wants .
「It is an important time for me right now . It has to do with the meaning of my life . 」
I’m not lying .
Brynhildr peers into my eyes, is somewhat satisfied and shows me a jealous expression .
「…… then I’ll overlook it . However, you have to take me along next time . 」
If I have to set out, it will mostly be in the daytime .
Although sunlight isn’t fatal to her, it is at least extremely unpleasant .
「I’m saying it’s fine, so it’s fine! ……thinking you’ll die somewhere prevents me from sleeping during the day . 」
Again, the last part was said so softly that I couldn’t hear . Well, if she says she doesn’t mind, then I guess that’s fine .
「That does it with what I wanted to say, but the worms in my stomach won’t settle down . Hey, come here!」
Brynhildr snaps her fingers and three females―― servant vampires judging by their pale skin―― appear from nowhere . All of them have attractive bodies .
After Brynhildr whispers something to them, they literally rip my pants off .
They bring their mouths down to my exposed crotch .
I guess the three of them are going to service me together .
Absolutely no indication of l.u.s.t or affection shows on their faces as their faces draw closer to my d.i.c.k .
Rather, they’re looking at me with scorn and disgust .
Vampires are typically condescending towards humans .
Most likely, they were ordered by Brynhildr .
I don’t prefer to have someone service me unwilling, though Brynhildr is the one who has the say in this case .
Besides, their contemptful expressions…… are unexpectedly not bad .
「Hey now, you’re making this into a reward . 」
Brynhildr’s expression becomes cruel when I couldn’t suppress my relaxed emotions .
「I wonder what I can do . I can’t kill you, nor can I get my familiars to do it . You begged me to spare crus.h.i.+ng your b.a.l.l.s too . 」
At her orders, the girls around my crotch open their mouths .
I close my eyes in antic.i.p.ation of the pleasure, except I got a sharp pain instead .
Six fangs, and then two more a bit later, sink down into my d.i.c.k, literally poking holes everywhere .
「…… tasty . 」
「…… this is addicting . 」
「……wow . 」
Joy washes over the faces of the vampire girls, then their faces soon fill with disdain when they see me smile .
No, it really isn’t that bad .
Next time I’ll get Celia to curse at me while stepping on my d.i.c.k…… wait, what am I thinking?
「This is the only time you girls will get . His blood belongs to me . 」
Even through the intense pain, the feeling of four girls sucking blood from my c.o.c.k isn’t bad .
The next day came .
「What happened here?」
Rita and Adela ask me fearfully in bed .
I don’t blame them for being concerned, after all despite the quick healing of the injury made by vampires, a b.u.mp was left in the places where I was bitten . Eight marks in one night isn’t something I can hide .
A little more time and they’ll get better though .
「It looks even more fiendish than ever…… like a vegetable from h.e.l.l . I won’t last five minutes……」
「Master will actually kill a woman in bed one day . 」
Adela and Rita, both panting, gulp nervously and cuddle up to me .
Thinking on it now, the girls I get with casually at the bars and brothels also gave me nice reactions .
They would pa.s.s out repeatedly during s.e.x and won’t wake up the next morning .
The girls who are accustomed to me and wake up insist on staying with me a little longer .
When I grant them a rematch, Celia usually bursts in and causes a scene .
「What a sinful man . 」
「What a sinful thing . 」
While receiving their love, I fall spread eagle on the bed .
Brynhildr forgives me no matter what I do .
That adds to her considerable beauty and loveliness, though I believe the large cause of my affection comes from the traces of ‘that woman’ I feel from her .
If I say that to her, two more holes will be added to my d.i.c.k .
