A Demon Lord’s Tale: Dungeons, Monster Girls, and Heartwarming Bliss
Chapter 38 Invasion
At night .
Iluna had already gone to sleep, the two maids had also gone to their rooms and, since I was bored, I was playing a board game with Lefy but right at that moment — the menu map screen popped up on its own suddenly .
"… . Nn?"
"Mm? What happened, Yuki?"
"… . Invaders . "
Saying that, I skimmed through the map .
There are two types of situations when this map opens up on its own .
Firstly, it pops up when an invader gets within a certain range of the dungeon's heart — the dungeon core . And secondly, when enemies of a certain amount of DP enter the dungeon territory .
Since the DP of stronger enemies is higher, it is a good indicator of the enemy's strength .
The second one, which pops up when enemies of a certain DP enter, not only works for a single enemy, but also for a group of enemies if their overall DP is above that certain limit . That is how I set it up .
And this time… it seems that that is the type of intruder .
Recently, a new feature has also been added such that I can also view the details of the invaders on the map . And after taking a look, it seems the invaders are all human . There were about four to five hundred of them .
Judging from their equipment, they are probably an army of some country . And that country is… well, I don't even need to think about it to know . In all probability, they are here for revenge for when we intruded in that city before .
"… . So, in other words, they didn't learn their lesson from the threat last time?"
"Seems like it . "
As I nodded, an inhumane smile came upon Lefy's face .
Seeing from her perspective, this is the same as making light of the supreme dragon's existence . It is probably by no means something she can overlook .
"… . Shall I go crush them?"
In response to that question, I shook my head .
"No… I might ask of you if push comes to shove but I will probably be fine . I also have something I wanna try out . "
—-In all honesty, I had predicted this situation .
I did give a warning to the city's lord to not get involved with us but when you look at the matter as a country, we just invaded the land one-sidedly .
A country would always care about its reputation . If I were to give an example from the previous world, it would be the same as if a certain country came invading a part of Japan's land and occupying it for some time .
When it comes to such a situation, whether it is the previous world or this world, they would definitely want to go for some kind of retaliatory measure .
It doesn't matter if invading the Demon's Forest is forbidden or not-more so when the pressure comes from higher ups .
Lefy-even if the supreme dragon is here, as time passes by, they would forget the threat she poses and do the same thing again . That's what humans do . Such a history has been repeated countless times in the previous world .
And since I know that, it isn't that difficult to predict such a situation .
—-And as I had foreseen it, I had also prepared well for it .
As I have expanded time over time, mostly all of the forest is now under the dungeon territory . And if it's dungeon territory, I could use the features I have never used before — traps or terrain modifications .
Assuming such a situation will come by, I had prepared useful traps . I will have these guys test the traps .
While thinking that, I glanced at Lefy, who was in front of me, and then towards Iluna, who was sleeping peacefully .
…I have been living as I wish after I came to this world .
Frankly speaking, I really like this lifestyle . Screaming, playing, fooling around everyday .
I have never even thought about returning to being human or to the human society . To be honest, I haven't even thought about returning to the previous world .
Well, it is true that the chances of me thinking about that would be there if I hadn't met Lefy or Iluna .
And so, I will not show any mercy towards the people who threaten my current lifestyle .
If they oppose me, I will just crush them .
Without fail .
"…But still, I guess I will warn them once, at least . "
As a former human . If they were to leave then, I will let them be . If they don't—-
"…Lefy, I will be back . "
I stood up saying that and materialized wings on my back .
"Hm . I will be waiting for the usual you, so come back quick . It's your turn next, after all . If you don't come back quick, I will just move them for you . "
She said, as if it was nothing .
As normally as possible .
Really… such a good woman .
"That is troubling . I will be using the super express to come back then . "
Giving her a bitter laugh, I appreciated her presence inside and left the throne .
