Birthday Party

───One month had passed since then.
Going outside would turn into a parade just like before, so he shut himself in. Occasionally Zan would spot Milis and get driven away by Phil’s sacrifice, but nothing particularly special happened.
And the rumors about the [Hero of Shadows] showed no signs of stopping, permeating the atmosphere of “Rumors fade after 75 days? As if.”
On the other hand, Phil’s former reputation had quieted down somewhat.
Whether someone saved by the [Hero of Shadows] denied that he was a “good-for-nothing son” or his notoriety as a “playboy” was revoked because … Read the rest

Looking for a Cat

“I’m going to look for a cat,”
It was a day when preparations for an upcoming birthday party were underway.
Since the useless ms. Privacy was away on a business trip, Phil visited the back alleys of the unpopular part of town.
Amid the oppressive atmosphere, Phil bluntly said to the two,
“I don’t wanna.”
“I’m going to search.”
“Absolutely not.”
“I’m going to search.”
Kahlua, who should have been focused on the theme of staying close, said to Phil very seriously,
But Phil, too, has a serious expression on his face and brushes off … Read the rest

Going Out

“I’ve decided I want to go into town!”
Right after finishing breakfast, Phil shouted loudly in his office.
“What’s with the sudden idea? I’m not letting you go to the brothel.”
“That’s definitely up for discussion─shall we have a positive talk about ‘wanting to go’ instead?”
“Then I’ll start by laying down my stance of ‘not letting you go’.”
“Alright, let’s end the debate here. I’m suddenly getting the vision of sore eyes for some reason. Peaceful compromise is best.”
Seeing no chance of winning the argument, Phil quickly backed … Read the rest

Kahlua smiled gently and headed towards Phil dusting sand off her maid uniform, gait unhurried.

“Yo, nice work.”

“You were amazing!”

“Yes, thank you very much.”

Praised by the two, Kahlua seated herself beside them in the shade.

“Whew…I’m beat. Think it’s about time I got a raise.”

“But you’re always saying you don’t need money. Freeloader aiming to work for free?” Phil jabbed.

“I just said I don’t need money. Doesn’t mean I don’t want some kind of reward…some new clothes might be nice.”

“Yeah yeah. We can go shopping once the gawkers clear out and ms privacy returns … Read the rest

Kahlua Scarlet

It had been one week since Milis started staying at the estate.

Inevitably, the commotion died down after a week.

The number of people visible from the estate grounds also gradually decreased, and now I could no longer hear the loud yellow cheers of “Hero-sama!”.

Thanks to that, Phil had been in an unusually good mood lately.

He often held a lecherous desire in his chest thinking “I wanna go to the brothel soon~♪”.

However, he couldn’t go to a brothel when the saint was staying over, as Kahlua said.

As a result, he had no choice but … Read the rest

Seeing Phil feign recognition, Kahlua beside him provides backup.

“(I heard it’s the crown prince’s upcoming birthday party.)”

“(So basically I’m to attend right? How tiresome…if that were all, I’d get contacted about it from Father instead of getting an official invite from the royal family.) Could it be…were you planning to tell me about it later but forgot, so I didn’t get the message somehow? C’mon Pops, get it together!)”

“(If you were lumped together with Phil, I can’t imagine you’d be very happy about it though.)”

“(Who out there wouldn’t be delighted getting the same treatment as their … Read the rest

“It’s okay Lady Milis, as I said before, due to unavoidable circumstances I wish to avoid being known as the [Hero of Shadows].”

“I don’t really understand why, but… I remember you telling me!”

“Since Princess Nicola went out of her way to meet me, odds are it’s related to the [Hero of Shadows] business. She likely aims to squeeze every last detail out of me, back me into a corner, and finally drag me off to the royal castle.”

“Isn’t it because Phil ignored her letters?”

“I wouldn’t deny that possibility either.”

In front of the guest room Milis … Read the rest

Nicola – Lilac, Second Princess

“Hey, you. Won’t you become my woman?”

It was the second day since the Saint had come to stay.

Finally, Phil’s concerns came to fruition.

“Um, well…”

On the second floor of the mansion, in front of the row of bedrooms prepared for guests, the Saint and envoy of the Goddess, Milis, had a troubled expression on her face.

“Man, this guy’s really going for it. He never fails to betray expectations in a good way… Maybe he’d be well-suited to be a street performer or commentator? I bet he’d be in high demand all … Read the rest

Nearly unconsciously pleading so, the young girl squeezed her eyes shut.
“Don’t fucking happily try to kill a girl now… you scumbag!”
A loud impact noise blared.
What happened?
Shut eyes awaiting the long absent sword slash, confusion seized her.
Timidly opening her eyes revealed a young man slamming a guy’s head against the ground before her.
“Let’s save the Q and A for later. We’re hardly in fitting conditions to enjoy quiz sideshows now.”
The youth stands to shield the girl.
Close enough to grasp … Read the rest

As a Count family, the Salemabart were nobles after all, even if said to have two scummy sons.
One look at the magnificent manor proved the grounds, decorations, and furniture to be sufficiently first-rate. Naturally, the same extended to the bathhouse.
“Wow! No matter how many times I see it, Lord Phil’s home has such a spacious bath!”
Just how many people could fit in at once? The washing area has small buckets lined up so extensively in length, while the actual tub looks swimmable in size. Fresh hot water perpetually pours from the lion mouths, the thick steam trying … Read the rest
