Alice’s words were right.

He showers the children with so much love.

“Phew… It’s been a while since I had to hold back like that.”

“Welcome back. Here’s a towel.”

“Thanks.”

I hand the towel to Alice, who has just returned from another room.

I won’t ask what she was doing.

But there was blood on her cheek, so I can guess to some extent.

“We’ve got the necessary information, so we can strike the main force tomorrow. You can relax.”

“…Is that so?”

A sigh of relief escapes me.

The children’s daily lives won’t be threatened anymore.

“Alice, I’ll definitely repay you for this. I’ll have money ready, so please wait a little longer for your payment.”

“Oh, of course. But I don’t think Lord Ouga would ever demand money,” she said, watching Vellett-sama play with the children with lively eyes.

Until a few months ago, Alice used to express hatred and resentment towards nobles. But now, she acknowledges the noble Vellett-sama. Please forgive me, Alice. I thought there was no such person. For nobles, commoners are easily replaceable beings. My mother was also one of the victims. So the fact that a noble would reach out to us, commoners who can’t even expect any rewards, is unusual.

“Anyway, Lord Ouga will decide everything. Let’s discuss it after the children have gone to bed.”

“…You’re right. Dinner is ready too.”

“I thought I smelled something good.”

“Vé, Vellett-sama…!”

Vellett-sama comes over with the children. They seem to have grown attached to him, as some of the little ones are holding his hand.

“It’s been a while. We were having so much fun,” he says, but surely He was buying time for Alice to finish her work. Occasionally, I caught him glancing in their direction, probably trying to keep the children away from there.

“So, what’s for dinner today?”

“Since everyone is here, I thought I’d make my best curry.”

“Yay!”

“Sister’s food is really delicious!”

“I love the food Mio-nee-chan makes too!”

“Is that so, is that so,”

Vellett-sama pats the excited children’s heads.

“Haha. You guys are lucky to eat Mio’s delicious food every day.”

“Huh…!?”

My food is delicious→I want to eat it every day→I want to be with her every day→marriage.

In other words… a proposal!?

What should I do?

I’ve never experienced love, so I don’t know how to respond.

“…………”

As I look at Vellett-sama, my cheeks start to feel warm.

Maybe, just maybe, he might fill this emptiness in my heart by judging my sins.

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

“So, what is it that you wanted to tell me?”

While Mio puts the children to sleep, Alice was called to the guest room by Vellett-sama for a private conversation.

They both sit down on a slightly old-fashioned sofa.

“Yes. I followed Lord Ouga’s instructions and tortured them to extract information. It’s about that.”

“…………”

I never gave such instructions…

How did she interpret it as torture?

I have a bad feeling about this.

“…You didn’t kill them, right?”

“Don’t worry. They have a role to play in leading us to their main base.”

It’s not you I’m worried about…

We need manpower to start anything. I can’t just cut them down easily like mowing grass. I wanted to incorporate them and resolve this peacefully…

What’s done is done.

At least Alice acted with me in mind.

Actually, she made progress by not killing everyone in a surprise attack on enemy territory.

Taking a deep breath, I look up. Sinking into the backrest, I ask her.

“So what did you find out?”

“They’re after this place because they want to build an underground arena in Inivent, it seems.”

“Like the Washua one Alice was in?”

“Yes. Or rather, it’s more accurate to say they’re remnants from there.”

“Didn’t you dispose of them all? Did some get away?”

“No, that’s impossible. Those without a place simply get time off. The lucky ones who had that day free are causing trouble now.”

“I see.”

Ah, isn’t this our fault?

Shutting down the Washua underground arena left these guys unemployed, so they set their sights on Inivent.

Washua and Inivent are neighboring districts. With no royal knights patrolling, it was perfect for restarting.

“To begin with, as Washua’s public order declined, more people had been leaving to Inivent. It was convenient for their evil deeds…”

Noticing my pondering, she trailed off.

“No, just thinking about some things.”

Yup, a complete whack-a-mole situation!

And I went and ate the dinner made by the people suffering because of us…

Oh no, my stomach suddenly started hurting…

What I aim for is not this kind of stomach-aching wickedness!

Even evil has its aesthetics.

For instance, I will do any evil deeds that benefit me personally, but I won’t involve myself in anything else.

Create a cute harem, enjoy delicious food.

Live freely and comfortably using tax money from my subjects.

Having principles and goals, pushing through meaningful actions is what makes one look cool.

I don’t want to be involved in random and unpredictable situations like this time.

…I’ve made up my mind. I’ll take responsibility and see this through to the end.

As long as I’m alive, I’ll ensure the safety of the orphanage, no, the safety of Inevent.

For that, I need to start planning in my head.

“Alice, about this attack. Absolutely no one is to be killed. Not even half-dead.”

“Why? Can you explain? Don’t show that dissatisfaction aura.”

Your presence alone can make ordinary people panic.

“I’m going to use them. For the execution of my evil plan.”

“I see. You have a plan in mind, huh?”

“Of course. What do you think of me?”

“The Saint who will save everything.”

This girl really adores me, huh?

As I pondered this suspicion, there was a knock on the door.

“Excuse me. It’s Mio. May I come in?”

Alice sought permission with her eyes, and I nodded.

“Come in.”

“Thank you. Were you busy?”

Mio, who finished putting the children to sleep, lowered her head.

In her hand was a white package.

“We just settled on a plan. How are the kids doing?”

“They didn’t seem frightened at all. Maybe they calmed down quickly because of your playfulness, Vellett-sama.”

“Hahaha…”

I felt a bit embarrassed; after all, it was just me acting silly.

But it was still a meaningful time.

I also learned about the children’s feelings.

“However, what brings you here at this hour? Worried and couldn’t sleep?”

“No, it’s not that… it’s for you, Vellett-sama.”

She handed me the white package that had been on her mind.

When I opened it, I found ten silver coins inside.

One silver coin could cover the children’s food expenses for half a month.

For her, it was a significant amount of money.

“As a reward for the noble, especially a duke like Vellett-sama, I understand that it’s not much. But this… um…”

She fidgeted, blushing.

“I’ll do anything to make up for the insufficient amount. Please… Please, protect us!”

I see. For me, these ten silver coins are, to be honest, just loose change.

Anything, huh?

“…Alice, do you remember what we wrote on the permit application when we came here?”

“Yes. It clearly stated ‘volunteer’.”

Oh, right. Then it’s strange to accept money.

“Huh…”

Mio, who had been looking down, raised her head.

After all, it was Alice who asked for this, and I had no intention of accepting any reward from the beginning.

Moreover, what I want is not the instant money, but future labor force.

Also, it would be devilish to add more suffering to those already affected by our actions.

I may be wicked, but I’m not an evil person.

Besides, my purpose is almost fulfilled.

“That’s why. I’ll return this. I don’t need any reward.”

I took Mio’s hand and gave the package back.

She stared at it for a moment and started shedding tears.

“Thank you… so much!”

“See? I told you, didn’t I? Vellett-sama doesn’t ask for money.”

Alice moved closer to her and gently patted her back.

You… did you just say that on your own?

Please stop planting bombs without my knowledge.

That was a close call.

If I had chosen to ask for more money here, both Alice and Mio’s opinion of me would have dropped…

“Alice, as soon as the date changes, we’ll launch the attack. I’ll rest for a bit, so be prepared in case anything happens.”

“Understood.”

“Until then, we have a lot to talk about. Take your time.”

“Um, uh…”

“What is it?”

“We have many vacant rooms here. Feel free to use any available room.”

“Alright, then I’ll do that.”

I bid farewell and left the room.

As I walked down the corridor, I could hear the children’s sleeping breaths.

I entered a random room.

“Well then, is this okay?”

After crushing the remnants of the rebels’ base, this incident will be over.

I’ll finish up the few personal things I’ve left and go to sleep.

Six hours later…

“Vellett-sama… Although I don’t have any charms, please feel free to use my body.”

Mio attempted to sneak into my bed at night.

Why?

Didn’t I say I didn’t need any rewards?

Why does it always end up like this around me?

I heard the sound of cloth rubbing against cloth.

Despite seeing Mio starting to undress in front of me, surprisingly, my head remained calm.

“Stop. I’ll call Alice.”

“Alice is standing guard outside. She won’t hear us.”

“Don’t underestimate her. If I call seriously, she’ll come running from the other side of the world.”

“Even so…I have reasons I cannot stop…”
