Magic sword and princess
Well, it seems that my wives were convinced by that explanation.
When something unconvincing actually happens, people try to find an explanation by themselves.
If they don’t do that, they wouldn’t be able to calm their minds.
「Hmmm. Could Yuki have been carried away by his youthful enthusiasm? In that last battle?」
「Well, you can think like that please」
To be honest, normal methods would not have worked against these sisters capable of raising the morale of their troops easily, so later we wouldn’t be able to talk.
It would have been easier if we had pledged that we were absolutely sure of our win, and crushed them to the ground.
But that way the demi-humans would be intimidated, and if the damage from the battle was too great, there would be future problems in the negotiations with the demi-humans.
It’s better for such types to have their pride shattered.
If they are going to whine anyway, I just have to throw them away.
「Oh my, that’s awful」
「But if we leave them whining, Labiris and the others will discipline them, right?」
「But why did you give the OK for Jessica and the sisters to marry me? I mean, if I get more wives, everyone will have fewer opportunities, right? Isn’t there something wrong?」
「About that? Though that’s a problem, it’s so that you don’t overstrain yourself. If there are a lot of us, wives, you will be more kind and take care of us, won’t you?」
「Well, I’ll take care of all my wives, that’s natural」
「That’s why. If you get a lot of wives who loves you, Yuki, then you wouldn’t have to force yourself too much, I’m not right? And you won’t be able to leave the children you will have alone either, right?」
「When I heard that Yuki was brought here to save the world, I feel like I understood Yuki’s heart. Yuki, you want to live quietly, don’t you?」
「It’s not like I can do that. At worst, Luna will come up to crush me」
「Yuki is an immortal, so why don’t you take it slow? We also negotiated out with Luna and made her make us immortal」
Seriously, Labiris has become immortal!?
Even all my other wives? Ahー, I should have nailed such a thing from the start.
「It’s okay. I don’t regret it. It’s all right, now I can keep my figure. From the point of view of my race, I can already give birth, and it’s lovely to have the same figure as to when I met Yuki. Ah, but Asurin and the others haven’t been immortalized yet. I’m sure Asurin will have big breasts after all. I’m looking forward to it」
「So you are looking forward to her growth?」
「That’s a given. That girl’s breast are still growing in that body. I bet her breasts will be as big as mine when she grows」
My goodness, Asurin was such an outstanding talent?
「So, I wonder what will you do with those sisters?」
「I’ll talk with them normally at least once. That’s why I went out of my way to say six billion」
「But I don’t understand what that six billion means?」
「It’s like a metaphor. Six billion for my homeland and four million for the Zilba Empire. If this doesn’t ring a bell, it’s okay. Seraria seems to have intuitively understood. And those sisters who have experienced and understood this were shaking, weren’t they?」
「In short. It was a declaration that there’s a country, a world, that can feed six billion people, and you think a mere country with 4 million can be our opponent?」
「Impossible with such numbers」
「Numbers are easy to understand. But it’s not just that. 6 billion means that there are a lot of skills and knowledge that have been polished so far」
「Does this mean that those sisters have been defeated by the people of Earth through Yuki?」
「Yes, only 4 million. I’m sure there are those who have a special talent or are geniuses. But then, we have the advantage of being 6 billion. Because of our overwhelming number. The skills and knowledge that will be born will follow. It’s not absolute. The higher the number, the more likely it is. In fact, the way my homeland fight, those sisters, the Zilba Empire, wouldn’t be able to do anything at all」
「It was one-sided」
「It’s not something simple like having a lot of supplies, that’s secondary. It’s all about the mindset of how you’re going to fight. It’s better to have a gun than to wield a sword. That’s natural in my world. I won because I’m a cheat, of course. A stupid thing to say. You understand, right? Certainly, if you have powerful weapons you are strong. But it’s impossible for one person. So I instilled knowledge into the monsters and organized an army that could attack with just an order. This is not because of the cheat but because of my hometown knowledge. I can’t call this the result of only one person. No matter at how you look at it, I’m just one of the 6 billion」
「Is that why you are always telling me that you are not a big deal?」
「Yes, most of the ideas didn’t come from me. It’s knowledge I learned back home. It’s the accumulation of knowledge of our predecessors who paved the way. And even now, they are still aiming for the future」
「Yuki, you said that you were a normal person back there in your hometown, right?」
「Yeah. Just a regular guy. I was living a normal life」
I was just an old man who went to work normally, played a lot of games and had as a pastime to take a nap on his days off.
「Yup. You’re definitely just one of the six billion」
I guess my image got through to them.
Labiris said that and laughed.
「Come to think, Yuki, you said would talk to the sisters. What’s the point? Will it lead to the magic depletion problem?」
「It leads. Rather, it’s too strange how that magic sword can operate normally on this magic-depleted continent」
「I saw such a document」
「I gave one to everyone but even so, you don’t know, right?」
「Sorry, Yuki. I’m not smart」
「It’s not that, you are just not the right person for this kind of job. Leave this kind of analysis to Zargis or me」
「Fufu, as expected, you’re wonderful. So, what’s the problem with the magic swords?」
「There is one. In fact, the conditions to activate the magic swords are strange. I’m sure Jessica told you about the mysterious stories about those magic swords」
「Yes. The magic swords always wake up with the princess. It’s about that?」
「That’s right. For some reason, these magic swords have always been used by women throughout history. The previous princess, Marley, always had her magic sword at hand and never letting someone touch it, and as I wanted information about the Zilba Empire back then, I hardly could research it. But with the information we got from Jessica about swords and women, Zargis is wondering if that has something to do with it」
「Do you think that the cause of the magic depletion problem?」
「No, I wouldn’t go so far, but I think it will become a piece of very important information. That’s why, the sisters came in the perfect time」
「If something involves Yuki, then even a legendary sword and a princess are just information, huh?」
Something that Labiris said stuck with me.
「Hm? Yuki, something is bothering you? …legendary swords? That’s where Yuki’s thoughts were disturbed」
「By “legendary,” you mean that the birthplace is clear, right?」
「Yes, if people are born then for things, it should be, when did you get it?」
What Labiris told me clicked inside me.
「Who made the magic sword?」
「…Let’s go ask Jessica」
We left the room to see Jessica, who was at the appreciation party.
Who made the magic sword and for what?
It’s not something you can do on your own.
