It’s Surprisingly Comfortable at the Demon Lord’s Castle.

Chapter 17
Demon Lord Who Hates Himself and a Budding

I made up my mind and began to talk, but we heard a big sigh from inside the room, and the two of us peeked back into it again.

“Hah… What on earth happened? You were so excited yesterday. You said you were going to lift the barrier on Shal-san, right? You ran out to invite him to come to the office, didn’t you?”

Pause. Azel, working on the documents, stopped moving his brush for the first time.

That’s right. Azel did so delightfully yesterday. And then, I promised to come here.

I’m here just as promised, but they haven’t noticed.
Gard, who knows the development right after that, tightly knitted his brows.

“…won’t come.”
“He won’t come, that guy. …Definitely.”

Azel declared, with dark eyes and a blank look on his face that killed his emotions.
And then, he started moving the brush again, as if nothing had happened.

Even if Reisen-san, who didn’t know the exact reason, asked him while perplexed, Azel had no reply anymore.

I wonder why, but Azel’s lack of expression didn’t seem to be a rejection ——but a defense.

I closed the door gently and carefully so as not to make a sound. Then, I looked straight at Gard again.

“Gard, let’s go for a stroll in the sky right now.”
“Got it. Where to?”
“Axio Valley.”

Gard heard my clear answer, and boldly laughed in an exceptionally delightful manner.
And then, he lifted me easily and started walking.

I— decided that if I could go get the flowers that I heard about from Maruo, then I could convey my many thanks to Azel.

And, if it pleases him.
Please take care of me from now on, until the day you don’t need me anymore. I decided to tell him that.

It’s not because I couldn’t get out of the prison. Even if I could go out, I still want to be here.

I can’t run away until I tell him that. I don’t want to run away. I want us to face this issue.
More properly, with you, in private.

Azel is a feared Demon Lord, but I don’t think that everything I saw when I spent time with him disappeared because of yesterday’s incident.

It’s only been a short time, but I don’t think Azel is that kind of man. His title of Demon Lord doesn’t matter.

Besides, if I’m going for positive thinking.

He misunderstood that I was going to run away, and it seemed that I made him angry at first glance, but perhaps he was just upset about it.

Somehow, it just feels like.

“Love, isn’t it? He seems to love me so much that he can’t let me go.”

I unintentionally let out a laugh.

It’s not like I’m being serious, but it would’ve been nice if I teased him about it. I’m so immature.

Hahaha, what.

Now that I think about it, I didn’t mind the cold Azel unlike other peopl……


Suddenly, the positive thought that I joked about just got received by my normal brain that was waiting.

Ah… Erm… I carried the joke a bit too far.

We’re both guys, our races are also different, there’s no way a fierce, handsome guy would love someone like me.

I don’t know why I thought of that. Really, is my broken head still lacking in blood?
If that’s the case, then it’s more natural for me to fall in love instead.

Even though I came to kill him, he let me live and have a much better life than I ever had before. Unlike the time I was told to kill him, he treated me on an equal footing, and worked hard to ensure my safety.

He’s such a dishonest, cute, handsome guy.

If you were kept in such a way, even if you didn’t fall in love with them, you’ll feel like you want to desperately give something back.
It would be extremely heartbreaking if you end up hurting them.
And, you’ll end up wanting to be by their side.

Yes, yes. I deeply nodded in understanding.
That’s right.

For the sake of my wonderful, gentle and precious owner, I’m going to ride the Hudord rollercoaster, eagerly waiting for me to jump out of the window.

The motto is, ‘for Azel’!
