Tonight was the fourth night. I deliberately brought Princess Coleman to the hall of the Demon King’s Castle, in order to show her pitiful appearance in front of the Hero, in hopes to inspire his fighting power.
Princess Coleman adjusted her sitting position and cowered under Fafnir’s wings, “just sit here, like this, Sarthis?”
“I’ve already said, call me Demon King!” I frowned, “you just need to sit there quietly, and it’s best if you shed some tears, understand?”
Princess Coleman smiled and said, “alright.”
“But I feel that something is missing……” She thought for a moment, and raised Fafnir’s paws to let it grip her, “this is perfect.”
I praised her, “I didn’t expect that even though you’re just a princess, you know the rules so well.”
Like this, I waited for the Hero Luke. I never expected that not only did he bring a fully charged holy sword today, but also a huge wooden box.
Was this some kind of secret weapon? At last, you’ve become serious, my old enemy!
The Hero saw Princess Coleman who was being held by Fafnir and asked, “are you okay, Princess?”
“Quite good.” I looked at the Princess, and she understood my intention and showed a sad expression as she restarted, “Save me, Luke.”
“Please rest assured, Princess Coleman. I will defeat him.” Luke nodded, “but before that, would you like to have dinner?”
He opened the large wooden box and revealed the super luxurious food inside, “I thought about it yesterday. Every time I come here, your display is very great. I feel like it takes a lot of work, and perhaps you are too busy to eat, so I prepared a meal for you today.”
He sent the lunch box in my direction, “would you like to eat together? I’ve made enough for three.”
When Fafnir saw the food, it couldn’t help try to ask for it, I stepped on it quietly, and it shrank its head back, wronged.
The hell you looking at, aren’t you the most ferocious dragon in the world, where’s the dignity of the dragon race!?
Five minutes later, the three of us sat around a table and ate, with Fafnir behind me acting as a cushion.
It absolutely wasn’t because I was hungry. I only wanted to understand why this weak Hero was so weak through this method.
To be honest, this Hero actually had an extremely extraordinary face, which didn’t match his strength in any way. If you look at his strength, I would give him an evaluation of 5. But just based on his face alone he should be give 5000.
By the way, if his face was 5000, then the taste of the food he cooked was 50000. I felt that even though I’ve lived for hundreds of years, I’ve never met a chef of this level — the goblins, who were responsible for the food in the Demon King’s Castle, it wasn’t bad if they could make a decent meal.
And in order to not mistreat my old friend, I graciously threw a large piece of meat to Fafnir.
“Do you need some more?” My old enemy asked me when he saw that my cup was empty.
“Sure…… No! Cough.” I realised that my noble temperament as a Demon King almost collapsed at that moment, and I instantly sat up seriously, “there’s no need.”
“Such a pity, since I also deliberately made such a large pot.” The Hero showed a somewhat lost expression.
This person was still quite considerate…… No, wasn’t this rhythm a bit strange?
I threw my teacup aside and looked at the Hero angrily, “okay, we’ve finished the meal, and it’s time for us to have our fateful showdown, Hero Luke! Today, we have to decide upon a winner!”
“….. Are you looking down on me!?”
He quickly explained, “no, It’s just, I feel like sleeping after I’ve eaten……”
Then, he shamelessly continued, “say, I’ve prepared such a good dinner for you, could I live in the Demon King’s Castle today? Recently, I’ve been laying on the ground outside the Demon King’s Castle, and I didn’t sleep very well .”
“What nonsense are you saying? How could my Demon King’s Castle be a place for people like you to sleep!”
“I can prepare your breakfast tomorrow.”
My heart was shaking like an earthquake.
“Isn’t this alright, Sarthis? If that’s the case, we can all eat delicious meals.” Princess Coleman had her chin in her hands, and was smiling happily.
“Plus lunch and dinner.”
“……Ah, I’ll have mercy on you and let you stay. This is in order to let you have a good fight with me after you’ve rejuvenated, understand?”
My old enemy smiled, “okay, I understand.”
Not counting today, tomorrow, I must retire!!
…… If he continued cooking the day after tomorrow, I think I could hold on for a few more days.
