Chapter 526 – The Three’s Departure

The spring parade ended safely.

The main protagonists of this parade are Alfred, Ursa, and Tiselle.

They won’t be coming back for a while so we went around each village.

Especially in Village Five, since they will be from Village Five in papers.

I don’t really mind but unlike the other villages, why does the parade there doesn’t feel like a departure parade?

The residents of Village Five are taking the three too much.

They are even wielding swords and spears and it looks like if something were to happen to the three, they will not hesitate to attack.

Glatts, who’s participating as someone from Village Four, is from the army and it looks like it is normal to him.

He said that it is to show that the demon king’s kingdom is on their side.

At the end of the parade in Village Five, the face of the demon king, who played the role of welcoming the three, is twitching.

According to the script, after the demon king greets them, he will take the three and leave but that’s not what happened.

We all came back to Big Tree Village.

They will leave tomorrow.

Accompanying them are the clay doll Earth and Asa, the former teleportation gate manager of the hot spring area.

There’s also the impure dragon that just arrived a little while ago.

「My name is Metora. Please take care of me from now on.」

She’s a bluish-white dragon and a woman in her thirties in her human form.

She’s wearing a classic maid outfit, the one with a long skirt.

I thought that a dragon in maid’s clothes is unusual but Doraim explained her situation to me.

She seems to be one of the impure dragons that are working at Raimeiren’s place.

She’s also one of the impure dragons that were called to go with them during the flying whale attack.

Of course, Raimeiren already permitted her to go with the three.

By the way, she has another name and that name is Dandaji.

That name sounds familiar.

Hakuren has said her name to me before.

She’s the strongest impure dragon.

The reason why she has another name is because she doesn’t like the name Dandaji.

Another reason is that if she calls herself Dandaji, there will be a lot of others who will challenge her for the title of strongest impure dragon.

「No matter how many times I win, there will always be Dors-sama and Raimeiren-sama far above me. I’m not really proud of it but there are a lot of others who are fascinated by the word “strongest”….」

Dandaji looked a little troubled.

No, she’s Metora.

Well, no matter how she calls herself, I won’t mind.

It would be better to go with the person herself.

The question is, can I leave the children in the hands of the strongest impure dragon?

As she was serving Raimeiren, I don’t doubt her abilities.

And she’s also not rude but…..

Doraim perceived my anxiety.

And he laughed because it is a completely unfounded concern.

Metora won’t shy out if she’s to serve someone and if she doesn’t like it, even if Raimeiren orders her, she won’t even come to this place.

In addition, one of those she will take care of is Ursa, who is treated as my and Hakuren’s daughter.

Daughter of Hakuren means granddaughter of Raimeiren.

Metora says that she has no problem serving her.

Is that how it works?

Let’s just think it like that.

「By the way, Hiraku-sama」

Metora suddenly looks serious.

「What’s wrong?」

「Are those three over there the kids that I’ll take care of?」

Metora is looking straight at Ursa, Alfred, and Tiselle.

「That’s right. Please take care of them for me.」

「From what I was asked, my work content is to take care of your son and two daughters who are going to enroll at the school in the demon king’s kingdom’s capital, is that true?」

「That’s true?」

It’s the truth, right?

There shouldn’t be a problem.

「Excuse me but, are you sure we are not going to invade the demon king’s kingdom?」

What kind of dangerous thing are you saying?

What part of them did you even get that idea?

「They have so many inferno wolves around them….」

…….

They are just saying goodbye to them.

As the three of them are going to leave tomorrow, I will talk to them one by one and urge them to be careful.

I might seem annoying but as a father who cares about his children, I can’t help but remind them.

Maa, I’m only reminding them that they should be cautious one out of ten.

As for the rest….use it to enjoy the world outside the village.

If you experience something not good, if you are in pain, you may come back anytime.

Don’t think that running away is a shame.

The most important thing is to survive.

I still want to talk but I was forced to stop by Loo and Tier.

Ugh….

Ursa is thirteen years old this year.

Both Alfred and Tiselle are ten years old this year.

I don’t care if they are going to school but I think it’s still too early for them to live in a dormitory.

That night, a grand banquet was held for their farewell party.

I usually don’t drink so much but I have drunk a lot.

The next day, the six of them, Ursa, Alfred, Tiselle, the clay doll Earth, the former manager of the teleportation gate of the hot spring area Asa, and the impure dragon Metora left via Beezel’s teleportation magic.

It’s the simplest way to travel.

In addition to Gol, Sil, and Bron, they have a lot of acquaintances in that place like the demon king, Beezel, and Glatts, so I shouldn’t be too anxious, right?

I’m so anxious that I can’t do my job.

I’m in a daze in my room at my mansion.

Loo and Tier are worried about the children too but they don’t show others how they feel.

It’s the usual.

Maybe they only miss them a little….Lupumirina and Aurora are here after all.

It is probably only Zabuton who’s as lonely as me.

She’s pretty lonely too.

Zabuton is particularly fond of Ursa.

She said she’s the one that needed the most attention.

Ah, darn it.

 I feel like I’m going to cry.

No no, I must believe in the children.

I recovered after noon with the help of Zabuton.

Now, everything’s back to normal.

Or not.

After seeing the children off, there is someone who hid in her room.

Hakuren.

Hakuren did not want Ursa to leave.

However, she continued acting like everything’s okay.

She also told them to be tough.

But she’s been crying all this time.

I visited her room several times to cheer her up but I wasn’t able to do so.

-0-

「Raimeiren was also like that when Hakuren ran away from home.」

During dinner, Dors said that while remembering the past.

「Let her be like that today. If she’s still acting like that tomorrow, I’ll take care of her.」

The embarrassed Raimeiren said.

No, it’s not like I’m angry at her or anything.

I even want to praise her for being strong in front of the children.

「Raimeiren, when Hakuren ran away, you kept crying for a year….」

Dors was beaten up by Raimeiren and fell from his chair.

Are you okay?

That was a strong punch….

You’re alive, right?

Good.

Dors returns to his chair and admonishes Raimeiren.

「Hakuren is weeping thinking of her child. Shouldn’t you be glad?」

「But that girl gave birth to Hiichirou too. I’m frustrated that she seems like she’s forgetting him.」

「That’s because you care about Hiichirou too much….ah, no, I didn’t say anything. Ehto…. She only needs time to recover. How about letting her take her time? How can you be too strict to your own daughter when you yourself acted like that too?」

「Ursa left because she’s going to attend school. Hakuren ran away from home. I didn’t even know where she was back then.」

「Yes but when Hakuren ran away from home, she’s already at that age. I even got reports and complaints from several countries….」

「But….」

Dors is working hard to suppress Raimeiren so I decided to check Hakuren.

We’re talking about Hakuren so I think she won’t keep crying for a year.

She should be fine in a few days.

I’m sure of it.

I believe in Hakuren.

-0-

Five days later, Hakuren was resurrected.

The reason for her resurrection was Ursa’s letter.

……

No, I want to believe that my encouragement helped her too.

    Two doctors opened offices in a small town and put up a sign reading, “Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones, Psychiatry and Proctology.”
    The town fathers were not too happy with the sign, and they proposed “Hysteria and Posteriors.”
    The doctors didn’t find it acceptable, so they suggested “Schizoids and Hemorrhoids.”
    The town didn’t like that either and countered with “Catatonics and High Colonics.”
    Thumbs down again.
    By now the story was in the papers, and suggestions began rolling in:
    “Manic-depressives and Anal-retentive.”
    “Minds and Behinds.”
    “Lost Souls and A**holes.”
    “Analysis and Anal Cysts.”
    “Queers and Rears.”
    “Nuts and Butts.”
    “Freaks and Cheeks.”
    “Loons and Moons.”

    1. tednihon

      This looks like a rap off between who can make themselves sound worse.

    2. Shino

      How about ‘PTSD man & Anal’ ? XD

    3. Wei Chen

      This joke would probably get banned on reddit.

  2. lycopene322

    That was a good laugh when Metora ask VC if the three will invade the DK kingdom instead with the kuros, hahahahah

    1. Shino

      *The Three impure dragon that works for the demon king saw Dandaji aka Metora in the Gullgald academy
      Dragon A : “Aren’t you the strongest impure dragon!?”
      Dragon B & C : *Gasp!
      Metora : “Nope, i’m just a maid for VC’s son and daughters”
      Dragon A,B,C : *We know that feel* gaze

      1. Keitarou Tempest

        Thank you very much for another chapter/joke, amazing stuff!

  3. ryujinweb

    It’s already 17 years in this world…
    Having a lot wifes and childrens…
    But still haven’t say he is an otherworlder…
    Now i know why, it’s to commit serial common sense murders…

    Because if they know, they will convinced that VC doesn’t know common sense in this world…

    1. Galiron

      I dont think he can say he is an otherworlder. I think it was a restriction placed on him.

    2. Wei Chen

      i think he talked about it with the Ancestor vampire, since they both talked about meeting god before being brought to this world.

  4. Yup yup

    Thanks for the chapter. I guess the letter is about how they conquered the school

  5. nomixam

    A letter after less than a week? That can only be good tidings, lol

  6. Lamora_R2

    I like that the autor shows how Hakuren turns out form a delinquent to a great mother,

  7. Me? I'm just a cook

    After 500+ chapters, i suddenly remember. Does VC ever mention his family name to other villagers; past and later chapters?

    1. don't mind meeee

      I think he didn’t even when he met loo

      1. anjingkudis

        「Thank you. Then, let me introduce you to my husband.」

        Loo suddenly introduced me.

        「Eh? A, aahh….eh to…..I’m Hiraku.」

        Machio Hiraku.

        It has been a while since I introduced myself to someone so I somewhat stuttered.

        「Nice to meet you. I am Tier. As you can see, I’m an angel.」

        Chapter 26

      2. oslos

        just aware that his name also can be translated to open the town (Machi o hiraku)

    2. OniMaidRespectArmy

      Yes, when Loo and Tier meet after Tier is captured by the Kuros Loo introduces VC as her husband and VC stutters out his given name and surname.

  8. Elisus

    Hakuren was always worried that Ursa would leave home when she got older. I guess it was because she did the same thing when she was young.

  9. TheDude

    Here we go bois and gurls, shitstorm incoming in next few chapters, fasten your seatbelt lmao

  10. Solomon

    Sigh.. I mean I never understand but the village is maybe the most advance in term of technology and maybe other knowledge concern both magic and science.. And yet MC​try to send children to a much more lower in both term to “study”… This is weird as hell…

    1. jos1234sue3723

      The purpose of sending children to school is to interact with people their age.
