A whole cake topped with plenty of fresh cream and fruit. Colorful macaroons with soft colors.
A pancake with burnt caramel pudding and butter and maple syrup.
Aah how wonderful.
Isn’t this heaven?
“Presea-sama, you promised Tiara that you would choose one of your favorites, right?”
Tiara wipes my cream-covered cheeks with a handkerchief.
“If you eat that much, you’ll get a stomach ache, won’t you?”
“It’s okay it’s okay! Because I’m so hungry!”
I can’t believe I can eat so many sweets that I couldn’t eat in the temple!
I think I can live here for the rest of my life… and suddenly I remember that this is the demon world.
No, no, no.
I have to escape from this castle before it’s revealed that I’m a saint, because I don’t know what the Demon King will do if I am found out…!
Three days have passed since I woke up in this castle.
Thanks to Tiara taking care of me, my body has recovered quite a bit. I can now run around the room.
But maybe it’s because I’m malnourished, or maybe it’s because my body is that of a five-year-old.
I don’t know the cause, but I couldn’t stay awake for a very long time.
I’m tired and I’m going to sleep soon…
I often fell asleep while eating.
It must have seemed too childish. Tiara didn’t seem to doubt that I was a five-year-old.
Even today, when I complained that I wanted to eat sweets, she prepared so many sweets for me.
I’m sorry I lied to Tiara, who took such good care of me, but it would be a shame if she found out I was a former saint. Life is more important to me now.
In the end, I still haven’t met the demon king who brought me to this castle.
It seems that he is not in the castle right now due to work.
I saw this as an opportunity. Anyway, it’s a species that lives. Before I can lead a happy commoner’s life, I must first escape from this castle.
“Oh my goodness, are you sleeping?”
It was probably because my hands were stuck in my thoughts.
Thinking I was sleepy, Tiara took the fork out of my hand and hugged me.
“Then, let’s go back to bed.”
Tiara seems to love children. Anyway, she seemed desperate to take care of me.
For the past three days, she has been watching over me constantly.
After returning me to the canopy bed, Tiara turned off the lights in the room. There are many very useful things in the demon world.
The lights in the room are also managed by a mysterious tool, and you can turn on and off the lights installed on the ceiling just by touching them with your hands.
I feel that culture is much more developed than the human world. Well, I’ve never been out of my room, so I don’t really know anything else.
Saying that, Tiara kissed my cheek. After stroking my head for a while and confirming that I closed my eyes, she gently lowered the canopy.
Then she quietly left the room so as not to make any noise.
She is gone, right?
After confirming that Tiara was gone from the room, I jumped up. Tiara will be back soon, so now is the time to do it.
Get down from the bed to the floor.
Maybe I was too flustered, and my body fell down.
A stuffed toy placed by the pillow falls down with a pompom.
I grabbed the rabbit doll and ran under the canopy to the window.
If you open the window and secretly look down… OK, there’s no one there.
There is a garden under the window, and you can see beautiful flowers even from here.
“Fufu. I jumped off that cliff. So there’s nothing to be afraid of anymore.”
Having said that, I’m still scared if the flight magic fails again, so I decided to bring along a stuffed rabbit.
This is so fluffy, so if I fall, it will be a good cushion.
Open the window and put my feet on the sash.
Finally, I glanced back at the room.
I’m sorry, Tiara.
Thank you so much for your kindness.
Although this is the first time, Tiara has treated me so kindly.
I was happy that you said my eyes were beautiful.
I will never forget you, Tiara.
Turn my gaze forward, close my eyes, and concentrate.
A sensation of my body gently floating.
Yes. I can do it.
The moment I feel that, I jump out of the window.
It should have floated, but suddenly my body fell down with a thud.
I’m, I’m going to die! ! ! !
So tired of this development! ! !
My desperate wish is in vain, and my body steadily falls.
However, when I fell to a certain place, I suddenly felt like my body was floating.
Just like that, my body slowly falls to the ground.
What, what’s this.
What’s going on?
Before I knew it, the feeling of floating had disappeared.
It looks like I fell all the way to the ground.
But for some reason, I don’t feel like I’m on the ground.
This is the feeling of being held in someone’s arms.
Hesitantly, I open my eyes.
It seems that my intuition was correct.
I didn’t fall to the ground, but was completely wrapped up in the stranger’s arms.
I couldn’t help but hold my breath at the beautiful face looking into me. His silky, pure black hair that barely touched his shoulders was deeper than the darkness of the night.
His eyes, which were the same color as his hair, were slightly slanted and filled with a sharp light like obsidian. His skin is white like snow and smooth like a woman.
The parts on his face were unusually well arranged so that he looked like a doll.
Is it because he is wearing something like a black military uniform?
When I saw that person, I felt like part of the world had lost its color.
“Where are you going?”
The man asked in a quiet voice while I was blinking.
It seems like I’m stunned.
“Eh um you know……”
Thanks for saving me.
But I’m scared of his gaze…
“I-I have something to do so…”
The man let out a sigh when I answered that in a flustered way.
“…When did I allow such a thing?”
No permission or anything, but I know nothing about you.
“Did Tiara allow it?”
No way. No way.
I shook my head sideways.
“Tiara has nothing to do with it”
“Your caregiver was Tiara, right? So Tiara will take all the blame.”
“Eh!? It’s different! It’s not like that”
“What’s the difference?”
“I-I’m on my own, that is…”
As I said, it’s getting worse and worse.
As I was saying things like that and that, my voice became quieter.
I didn’t know what to do, so I tightly hugged the rabbit.
The man sighed and said to me, who suddenly stopped saying anything.
“Did you leave the room on your own?”
I nodded reluctantly.
Then, the man with the scary face loosened his expression for the first time when he saw me who had become sore.
Who is this person?
While I was feeling uncomfortable, a man’s mouth gently approached my ear.
“You’re such a bad girl, Presea.”
My body trembled at the sweet voice that contained a smile.
Huh… why does this person know my name?
While my eyes were blinking in surprise, the man started walking while holding me.
Something like a man’s long coat flutters in the wind.
The figure that crossed the garden and entered the large castle was quite majestic. As if he were the owner of this castle.
I was surprised by the man’s actions, but since I saw the inside of the castle other than the room for the first time, I was surprised by its enormity.
This is probably the entrance.
The ceiling was endlessly high, and the place above the hall was spacious enough to accommodate hundreds of people. There are a lot of busy people coming and going.
It may be the servants of this castle. But the moment they saw me and the man, everyone opened the way and deeply bowed their heads.
Why do all of you do this?
Is this person a great person…?
“Ah ah, Presea-sama! Good for you!”
A familiar voice.
Looking around, Tiara was hanging from the other side of the corridor with a worried look on her face. Looking at the face of the man who was holding me, her expression brightened.
“Your Majesty, welcome home!”
“Um, I just got home.”
“Why is Your Majesty – The Demon King carrying Presea-sama?”
Your Majesty – The Demon King…?
Cold sweat comes to the surface.
“From, from the window !?”
Tiara was speechless.
I’m at a loss for words too.
His Majesty the Demon King.
The king of the demon world.
Humanity’s (My) enemy.
Aah, it’s over…
I will be killed…
