Chapter 548 – Life in the Capital, Ursa, Assassin, Day 15 – Day 25

My name is Ursa.

Mother Hakuren and father Hiraku’s daughter, Ursa.

No more, no less.

-0-

I am now living in the capital of the demon king’s kingdom.

I’m with little brother Alfred, little sister Tiselle, Asa, Metora, and my exclusive butler Earth.

At first, Nutt was supposed to come with us instead of Tiselle but I managed to make Tiselle take her place.

I apologized to Nutt but Nutt also has the same opinion as me so she cooperated.

It will be hard for me and Nutt to hold Alfred down.

For Alfred’s sake, she even asked Alfred to convince father to replace her….

Alfred, on the other hand, is confused but he still managed to convince father.

And we managed to get the desired result.

If it is Tiselle and me, we can hold Alfred down.

-0-

Or so I thought because Tiselle is always absent as she goes to the royal castle every day.

I told Tiselle her role but, could she have forgotten it?

That’s possible.

Asa and Earth are also not here so the firepower is obviously insufficient.

Metora is strong but she’s not strong to suppress him if that happens.

There’s no choice but to make sure that won’t happen.

I have to make sure that Alfred won’t get out of my gaze.

Then, I also noticed assassins.

Five of them?

In terms of strength, they can be considered as weak.

However, who knows if they can use poison.

I won’t get my guard down.

I had Metora take care of them.

Those five assassins are hired by the Dalfon Company.

There’s no way I’ll trust the assassins’ words so I’ll leave them to Tiselle.

She’s the best in that aspect.

That’s what I want to say but these are assassins.

Who knows why they are here?

However, I feel their bloodlust.

There’s no doubt that these are killers.

It looks like they are different from goningumi and not the information gatherer type.

Their target is not only me but also Alfred.

I won’t forgive them.

-0-

I worked hard for the next three days but it’s useless.

I still lack information.

It’s frustrating.

But I did not rampage.

I’ve grown.

I asked Uncle Glatts to support me.

「We arrested a couple of suspects.」

Great.

The bloodlust around also disappeared.

But, why are they targeting us?

「Ah, it’s hard to say but it looks like they found out that you are related to Lulushi-san.」

「Mother Loo?」

「A little while ago, she treated a certain member of the royal family of a certain country. It seems like the hostile forces are retaliating.」

「They’re using us to retaliate?」

「Targeting Lulushi-san to retaliate is too unrealistic, don’t you think?」

「And targeting children is realistic?」

「If you target children, even if you fail, you surely would have dealt damage.」

「Is that so?」

「Yes. Lulushi-san would be worried if she knew you were being targeted, wouldn’t she?」

「She’s be enraged and likely charge at the opponent’s country.」

「That is already expected but I feel like I should report this to the village. Do you know what that means?」

「Why don’t you just hide it? You won’t need to worry about anything then.」

「If you’re saying that seriously, all I can say is that it is the worst thing that I can do.」

「Yeah, then, how about saying that we didn’t notice that they were assassins?」

「Are you going to eliminate them all?」

「Yeah. If that case, mother Loo would think that I’m only exaggerating and she won’t think it is necessary to go to the other party’s country.」

「That would be great but….hmm」

「We want to live in peace but we don’t want to be protected by many guards.」

In order for that to happen, I should be fully recognized by both mother and father.

Otherwise, what’s the point of leaving the village and coming here?

「Please, Uncle Glatts. I won’t go on a rampage and will properly consult you.」

「…..Okay. However, it is impossible for me to send a false report though I’ll report that it was you who noticed those assassins. At the same time, I’ll also convey your plan. I’ll also tell her to calm down.」

「How about father?」

「Well, it’s up to Lulushi-san.」

「I don’t want him to worry.」

-0-

Perhaps the result of Uncle Glatts’ report, the high elf Rigune-san became our guard.

Rigune-san is mother Ria’s mother.

For that reason, I’m supposed to call her grandma Rigune but I can’t say that.

Though Rigune-san is now our guard, she doesn’t appear before us.

She’s protecting us from the shadow.

But sometimes, she eats with us.

If Rigune-san is at our house, Gol-ani and the others often come.

They are learning bow from her as well as essential knowledge for adventurers.

I’m studying with them too.

As for Alfred, is he interested in adventurers too?

I almost blurted out that it doesn’t suit him but….I didn’t say it.

Father said that I should be careful with my words since I might hurt others.

-0-

I was not careless.

It was the enemy who had a good plan or two.

A few hours ago, an unfamiliar monster came out from the north forest so Rigune-san and Gol-ani’s group were called by the adventurers guild.

Rigune-san tried to refuse since she’s guarding us but I got interested in the unfamiliar monster so Alfred and I insisted on going.

I, Alfred, Rigune-san, Gol-ani, Sil-ani, and Bro-ani, the six of us left school and was traveling at a meadow towards the north forest…..

We were ambushed.

About 30 thugs attacked us.

But they are not Rigune-san’s match.

She beat them out.

We can’t leave these thugs alone but we can’t kill them too.

Because of that, Gol-ani, Sil-ani, and Bro-ani brought them back to the royal capital.

And when we were wondering what to do next, about 30 thugs showed up again.

They are not Rigune-san’s match.

However, Alfred and I no longer have guards.

That’s their goal.

A man with a grumpy face showed up.

He looks like a merchant.

He doesn’t look like a thug so I didn’t pay attention to him but he threw daggers at us.

Six daggers.

Three for me and three for Alfred.

I can evade them.

However, Alfred can’t.

Because of that, I caught the three daggers coming toward me and threw them to intercept the three daggers going to Alfred.

Success.

At the same time, a dull pain ran on my flank.

A seventh dagger?

It was stuck in my flank.

Alfred screamed.

It’s okay.

This is nothing.

「Alfred, run!」

「Understood!」

Alfred fled.

To be honest, neither Alfred nor I received education in how to deal with what’s happening.

We were only educated to remain on the scene and scream if we wanted to.

We were educated not to be a hindrance.

Now, the opponent is strong.

He’s different from those thugs.

However, even if I can’t beat him, I can still do something.

Once Rigune-san knocks out all of the thugs, we’ll be sa…..

I heard a scream that I don’t want to hear.

When I looked in the direction of the scream, there was a group that’s ambushing the fleeing Alfred.

And Alfred was pierced with countless of arrows released by the enemies.

………

I was not careless.

It was the enemy who had a good plan or two.

I failed.

I should reflect.

I ignored the merchant-like man in front of me and called out to Rigune-san who’s dealing with the thugs. We have to run away with all our might.

We have to leave this place as far as we could.

Alfred will surely get angry.

Did Alfred die from being pierced by countless of arrows?

Alfred should be fine with an attack of that level, right?

Look, Alfred’s body is getting blurry.

Atomization.

Any physical attack won’t work.

He’s a cheat.

However, he can’t attack in that state.

But even if Alfred can’t attack, it doesn’t mean he’s helpless.

Alfred’s shadow spreads in an unnaturally wide manner.

And shadow warriors came out from there.

And they indiscriminately attack.

Once upon a time, when he did this in the village, Alfred was scolded by father.

Since then, he had sealed it but given his current state, that won’t matter.

「What’s going on?」

I answered Rigune-san’s question.

「Alfred atomizes when he gets attacked….he still can’t control his atomization state well so he fell to a frenzied state when atomizing.」

The shadow warriors that came out from Alfred’s shadow attacked the group that ambushed Alfred.

The shadow warriors are not so strong but they are infinite….there’s no end to them.

In addition, they attack indiscriminately and don’t care about anyone but Alfred will surely remember this later.

If we suddenly approach, we will surely be attacked.

What should I do?

I especially asked Tiselle to come with us for this but she’s not here.

How regretful.

Ah, Rigune-san, that’s useless since arrows are not very effective against shadow warriors.

It will be more effective to beat them up than shooting them with an arrow.

The shadow warriors are now attacking the merchant-like man.

The merchant-like man is defeating shadow warriors one after another but shadow soldiers are being created one after another.

He was immediately drowned by a wave of shadow warriors.

I want to say serve him right after what happened to my flank but….

The thugs that Rigune-san was dealing with earlier are also being swallowed by shadow warriors.

As they struggled to cope, Alfred made another move.

He stopped creating shadow warriors and casted a magic circle.

「What’s Alfred doing?」

I explained to the worried Rigune-san.

「Ehto, he’s calling someone who he contracted with.」

「You mean he’s summoning? Who is he calling?」

「I don’t know but….I wish it is someone I could talk to.」

Alfred, who is in a frenzied state, called the name of his summon.

A shadow appeared in the magic circle he made.

I called it out too.

「Kuroichi!」

    A soccer mom walked into a tattoo parlor and asked for 2 tattoos.
    She wanted a Christmas tree on her left thigh and a turkey on the right thigh.
    When they were done the artist asked why she wanted these tattoos.
    She replied ” My husband always complains that there’s nothing to eat between Thanksgiving and Christmas.”

    1. Shino

      The Artist get hard after that

      1. Mischa

        I love all these POV’s. It does make me wonder about zabuton though? Why did she stay and meet up with VC and stay with him? This makes me want to re read from the beginning again to see if I missed any other POV chapter to explain this. This world is super big.

    2. Gol D Igger

      lmao

  2. Geno Ramirez

    So Alfred is also OP … NANI !?!

  3. Steppenwolf

    Welp, I pray for the country that got Ursa stabbed. Hakuren-kaasan is not going to like that. lol

    1. Zax

      And Alfred was the real problematic?! Maybe another POV will shed light on this. Thanks for the chapter

    2. riz

      Hakuren-mama? that’s nothing. they should worried if Zabuton-mama knew bout it instead. as guardian of death forest whose even feared by the dragon families, she and her childrens were scary when they decided to swarming. IRL, this scene indeed scary right?

      1. Rawr

        I don’t think Zabuton and her brood will go out of the forest though. She’s smart enough to know she’d cause panic and more problems if she does that.

        Dragons on the otherhand are well known for rampaging and eliminating a country or two whenever pissed off so all countries (including the demon kingdom) are very nervous whenever dragons are involved.

      2. Heucuva

        Well, a part of her brood scatters to the wind every spring, so who knows where the little spiderlings end up? And each and every one of the spiderlings are practically considered to be a natural disaster. So while they’re not as flashy as dragons, they have stealth, numbers, and one scary mother that even dragons are wary of.

  4. Shino

    Yepp, they should ‘acting’ like what a kid at their age should do but, something feels wrong

  5. Squirfail

    Wtf!!! And we thought Tiselle was the reason for Nutt backing out, apparently it to stop Alfred too… VC what did you put in Alfred’s head

  6. tednihon

    Thanks for the chapter.

    I did not expect Alfred to be OP but it’s rightful since he’s the child of Lulushi and VC. I’m now excited on how dangerous VC’s other children are after this revelation.

  7. lycopene322

    HAHAHAHA!!!
    Kuroichi! Nice one. Its your time.
    The first 4 wolf kids should had their battle time like Kuroyon destroying angels, vampires, elf and dragons on chess match…!!!

  8. Firsan

    Thnx for the translations~

    Well… Considering Alfred is Rurushi’s child of course it’ll more likely Alfred also will inherited some Vampire Ability like Mist Form (I don’t quite remember if Ru can do it though) but in this case Atomization adding to that he is VC’s child who have the perfect body of never getting sick which probably gonna affect the Gene and make Alfred’s body to be superior than standard, thus Alfred will be OP.

    1. dicky satria

      she can, but the drawback of the ability of Mist Form is they cant counter attack , looks like Alfred ability is the upgraded form since its also summon Shadow Guardsmen

  9. Lamora_R2

    Did Ursa and Nutt played Alfred and Tiselle because only the two of them could control the other?

    1. Ricky

      Man, Alfred and Tiselle make Ursa look normal in comparison. I can’t wait for the next chapter!

  10. adibaqilirfan

    Oho, I give my condolences in advance to the foolish small fries that dares to pick a fight with our Alfred

  11. up back

    Thanks the Chapter, was epic!

    So its not for Tiselle being mischievous, but to contain Alfred going berserk, man… He never showed the sign of being OP.

    Im pride of Ursa maturing cant wait for an Alfred pov 😀

    And man…. time to destroy a country or 2, hurting Ursa is unacceptable.

  12. Ika Hatsumi

    Holy, i definitely did not see that coming. At first i thought Ursa was gonna be the problem, then turns out Tiselle is worse, and boom, Alfred is the dangerous one. Seem like no children of VC should be on the safe list. Put them all on the do not touch, ever ban list.

    1. Heucuva

      Well, put it this way – every child raised in Big Tree Village looks at horned rabbits as the lowest on the hunting list… a monster that requires multiple people from the outside to handle. They see villagers go one-on-one against lamias (in the tournaments)… which took down 300 troops from the demon country with just 3. And then they play with inferno wolves and demon spiders, both of which are considered natural disasters anywhere else in the world.

      Pretty much every child (and adult) in BTV has to be put on a do-not-touch list. Which the Demon King did, and that caused the backlash which lead to the current situation.

    2. yomero

      Well all the big heads in Demon King’s Kingdom already put the groundwork before VC children were admitted into the academy. They even passed a ‘do not touch’ warning to all parties concerned. Idiots will be idiots.

  13. XsaluteZero

    Thank for the chapter ^^

    Wow, Ursa, you really grow up (T▽ T )

  14. TheTanJar

    Ok I figured all VC kids would be OP in some way but ALFRED WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE CALM ONE RIGHT?!

    1. Koffee

      Its always the calm ones you have to watch out for…

  15. FanS1inceDay1

    Hahaha! Alfred with shadow warriors and a contracted summon beast demon wolf, Kuroichi in the house!!. Dang… Prayers for the enemy… I give my condolences…

  16. Lazypanda02

    I want another country destroying chapter, but with an enraged Village chief + Zabuton

  17. Darkwhiz

    Holy cow, super demon lord jr, I first thought the Nutts, not joining them is because of Ursa, then it was Tiselle, I did not expect that it Alfred that is the most problematic. 😳

    1. Oliver Sancho

      Excuse me Elite4Harmon-dono… ¿When happened the first time that Alfred went bersek in Big Tree Village? Thank you for the answer.

      1. dicky satria

        i think this is the first time someone mentioned it, so far theres no chapter mentioning Alfred’s berserk until now

  18. Rawr

    OMG. Christ, VC’s children are such monstrous powerhouses.

  19. Leave a Reply

    That country needs to be destroyed 10 times for hurting best girl Ursa.
    Now imagine if Alfred inherited the AFT in the future…

    1. ncdxero88

      He has an unlimited army of soldiers all ready for spring harvest.

  20. bear

    alfred, urza n tiselle basically like rock paper scissor but its take 2 of them to control other 1 safely if things happen.

    alfred is the calm one but he in berserk state right now. also vampires have specific traits

  21. Dizzcity

    You gotta wonder… just how many denizens of Big Tree Village has Alfred established summoning contracts with? Kuroichi may just be one of many. And frankly, Alfred is super-OP. Atomization makes it impossible for physical attacks to hurt him, and he’s clearly into summoning magic, what’s with both shadow warriors and summoning circles. An invulnerable summoner is a one-man army. Well, maybe he’ll run out of mana. Though if he had inherited the VC’s “healthy body”, that might also extend to his mana capacity…

  22. Muka Powa

    Unlimited shadow warrior with summon inferno wolf who are you demonking(who playing with cat rn) or dark god(meow)?

  23. TheDude

    I’ve read the raws until the latest chapter. Gotta say that the event that will span some chapters starting from this one is the most memorable for me personally as a reader. And nothing so far has been able to come nowhere near as close. Its somewhat short, but enjoy it while it last bois. Cheers.

  24. ncdxero88

    The secret behind Alfred really blew my mind. By the first mention that Ursa and Tiselle were there to stop Alfred surprised me. An unlimited wave of shadow warriors… I wonder how weak that are in what standards? I can’t really trust Ursa’s words, because weak in their standard could mean an A class disaster in regular common sense. Besides, the big man being able to hurt Ursa only means the guy was no means an ordinary, and that dude got swarmed. All this info consideration… I wonder how VC reacted on the first time it happened? That’s one hell of a kept secret.

  25. Chris Sizemore

    It is times like this when you remember that Tier and Loo are suppose to be enemies and rivals who match each other. Angels fly, have strong magic and strong bodies and are essentially immortal. Loo is a talented scholar with superior knowledge of magic, but she would need a bunch of extra abilities to be equal to an angel…

    …and now it looks like Vampires are more OP than a base line angel. Alfred isn’t trained for combat, this is just him in a frenzy. I wonder if he will stop at summoning one inferno wolf?

    Now imagine the revenge squad of High Elves and Oni Maids quietly infiltrating the back allies. Capturing various people. Blood stained basements, filled with confessions and unearthed secrets. The growing number of shallow graves. Then a dragon flattens a castle and the incident is over.

  26. ARKLIGHT

    And like that… the situation has escalated FAR beyond an assassination and may now become a Genocide…. because of ONE Inferno Wolf.

  27. Rifaman

    so the three of them like a trinity, they take two to restain each other. now i wonder if every VC children also have cheat power that they didn’t use because as Ursa say it :

    “To be honest, neither Alfred nor I received education in how to deal with what’s happening.

    We were only educated to remain on the scene and scream if we wanted to.

    We were educated not to be a hindrance. ”

    and make sense Kuroichi have summoning contract with Alfred because they both firstborn.

  28. Elisus

    Just wait until ancestor-san finds out about this. I’m surprised they didn’t just destroy Dalfon Company.

  29. Danilo Do Amaral Ferracini

    I get quite annoyed at how everyone hides pretty much everything from VC

  30. Lukas Wicher

    Well… One High Elf didn’t make them retreat, and now they have done something really bad. They shot Alfred and made him summon his dog. They made him summon Inferno Wolf. One IW is said to be capable of leveling whole city, or even more. And I wonder. Will it be just one IW or is Kuroichi a leader of a squad that he can summon to himself as well? And how much manure can those thugs defecate in a short moment since IW has appeared?

  31. Night0lw

    Wow that took my by complete surprise.
    Can’t wait to see Btv reaction to this.

  32. Treyon

    Hahahhaha…. fuck lol. The demon king and everyone there will literally shit bricks when they hear about this… not only were VC children ambushed by almost 100 assasins, they WOUNDED ursa and alfred… mc is going to go nuts lol… someone dares hurt my children? Hakuren and Luu will go on a rampage XD.
    Also GG assasins kuroichi will murder them all lol.

  33. Priyanshu Goel

    Dudes it is the type of storytelling in which you reveal the details slowly to create anticipation and surprise when it finally happened also gives the author leeway to change things and avoid plot holes, tl;dr we weren’t told Alfred went on a rampage before.

  34. darkwhiz

    So it turned out that Ursa-chan is the least problematic child for VC

  35. Geripita sugal

    I wonder how strong that merchant like guy is, if ursa can defeat him than he stronger than pirika? Or is just that ursa cant win without full power/ using proper weapon (her sword)

  36. moriidin

    Alfred’s setting up to be Sung Jin-woo, harem version.

  37. Flrncitly06

    So this is the reason Alfred is the calm type because of a seal he probably put on himself after being scolded by vc?

  38. Navaron

    Slice of Life no more
