Finishing my words, I released the limiter of my skill 'Dominion' and made everyone in the room feel my bloodlust. Immediately, everyone in the room fell down convulsing. The only ones left awake are myself, my entourage and the fat bastard in front of me. I made him feel my intent but controlled it so that he won't go unconscious. Soon, he began sweating profusely and then anxiously looked around. Seeing that everyone wasn't awake, he paled and spoke to me with almost incoherent words.
"Si-si-sir... Lo-lord, I-i-i am th-the so-son of th-the Pre-presi-sident o-of Fi-Fiore Me-merch-chant G-uild. Yo-you ca-can't-"
"Hmmm..." Standing up, I walked to where the fatass is while he is retreating. "So what if you are the son of a merchant guild's president? Do you think that your status will save you? I don't care if you are the son of the president or the son of a prince or a king or an emperor or even God! Heh. It's been five years since I killed a son of the emperor along with his entire family. This past few years , I was killing either sons of barons, viscounts, counts, earls, and dukes. So tell me, do you want to be included in my long list of killing highborn sons?"
When he heard what my words, he paled even more. I then released my disguise. My black hair began turning white and my green eyes turned red. My tanned skin turned white and my body structure began to buff up from a normal and average build. This all contributed to my illusion magic that I have been practicing from the past few years along with new spells and powers. The fat pig shivered uncontrollably and literally pissed on his pants. He then turned arond and tried to run, only to stumble upon an unconscious body and fell on his face. He tried to crawl away but I was already in front of him. I then grab the scruff of his clothes and threw him to a near chair. I smiled at him and spoke.
"From the way you are acting right now, it seems like you know me. I don't know you though. Tell me, do you recognize me? Stutter and your tongue goes off. Don't answer me and it will be your head that goes off."
He then paled even more and spoke. "You are... The Hydra King... The White-Haired Fiend... The Demon King... King Beale, ruler of The Great Kingdom of Agmanac."
"I didn't know any of those titles you gave me save one. But tell me, how did you know it was me?"
He gulped and said. "You're the... only one in the continent of Avalonia... that could incite fear to all nations in it... The Central Powers and the Southern Republics... all shivered when they heard what happened... to the former Luxum Empire... Now, everyone is at their toes... Looking at you and your movements... Us here in the Union, we have experienced and suffered from your wrath... during the Holy Crusade... We know how... formidable your troops and weapons are... The major description about you is that... you are a young man, had white hair, red eyes, that exudes a kingly aura and a dense killing intent."
"I see. Well, enough of that. I would like to ask you the next question. Now that you know who I am, what will you do to me? You did say what should I do to compensate you for taking your reserved room and all that bullcrap. You were also eyeing my companions a little while ago."
The fatass began shivering again but tried to calm himself and replied. "I was just... asking. Yes, I was just asking... I am a VIP customer in this... inn so it kinda got into my head. As for your companions... any man would... look at them due to their beauty... which is rare here in the Union. I-"
"Okay. Enough bullshit. I will just tell you this. I am angry. You made me waste my meal, waste my time, waste my words and waste my thoughts. So here's the thing. I hate things that makes me waste my time and right now, that 'thing' is you. You may say 'It was you who was doing all the questioning and talking?!' but I will say this. 'You're the one who made me waste my time.' So here's my proposition. How would you like to die, slowly, moderately or quickly?"
He suddenly knelt down and tried to grab my pants but I evaded "Yo-your majesty, mercy! Mercy, please! It was a mistake but... I-It was just a minor-"
"Minor, huh? You wanted me, a king, to do something for you because I did something not to your liking and now you say that this is just a minor thing? Your President would even bow his head to me if I wanted and now, a son from a local union member wants me to compensate him for taking his favorite VIP room in this inn? Tell me, Don Milan. If you made an offense to a sovereign of another country, what would happen to you?"
"I-I would be... beheaded... Bu-but you didn't declare yourself as king before, your majesty! I thought you were just some newbie but-"
"Enough. Choose from the choices I gave you. Slow, medium, fast?"
"Your Majesty, please have-"
I invoked a curse spell towards the fatass. "EXECRATIO: STITPIS EXITII"
From my hands, a violet colored transparent snake flew out and quickly latched unto the fatass. Soon it grew larger and coiled around his body. When the snake finished entangling itself to the fatty, it bit the guy's neck. Soon, the violet-colored veins began popping out of the fatty's body, all this while the magicka snake that bit him quickly reduced its size. After a few moments, the snake was all absorbed by the fatty's body. He began to tremble and spoke.
"Wha-what did you do to me?!"
"I planted a special spell on you. That spell is potent, you know. Soon, you will know true despair." I then turned around and walked towards the stairs going up with my entourage behind me.
"WHAT DID YOU DO?!"
I faced him for a while and said. "Why ask when you can see it for yourself."
Soon, wails of despair and panic rocked the merchant city. Yells, screams, wailing and shouts of anger could be heard from every direction. Morning came and I woke up with a clear head. I was greeted by my entourage who helped me get dressed. After that, I went through my disguise again and we went down to have our breakfast. As soon as the barkeep saw us, he literally left in a fluster and in a few moments, returned with an aged man on tow. They came in front of me and spoke.
"Sir, I am Antonio Baccini. I am the owner of this establishment. I would like to talk to you about the thing that happened last night."
"Why are you asking me?"
"You and your entourage are the only ones who wasn't in the tavern hall when everybody woke up."
"That's why I am asking. Why are you asking me about it?" I said with now a less amiable tone.
"Sir, we saw your group eating at the tavern hall yesterday evening. When everyone woke up, your group wasn't present. Now, every customer of ours are having complaints about their possessions that are now missing due to that unnatural occurence last night. I am here to ask you if you are the one who took those things. We may be merchants but we abide the law. We just ask that you return those stolen items and surrender yourself to the authorities."
Before I could even speak, a man sitting in one of the tables spoke.
"Owner, that sword that brat is carrying. There's no doubt that that is mine. That is a family heirloom of ours!"
"That coin purse, owner. I know that coin purse, owner. That is the purse me Ma gave to me!"
Soon, everyone is voicing that what we have in us were theirs. Money, weapons, cloaks, bag, clothes, shoes, everything. They are now claiming our stuff as their own. The owner then spoke again.
"There is no denying it then. You stole our stuff. Even our counter lost 1000 gold. Please surrender and-"
Before he could even finish, I laughed out loud. So loud that it drowned the whole room, making the accusers shut up.
"Wha-what is so funny?! Have you gone-"
"Insane? No, owner. I didn't. You see. There are major flaws to your accusations. You wanna know what those are?" I said with a smile.
"Wha-what is it?"
"First, I will tell you this. I am rich. That is why I know why you are targetting me. 1000 gold? 2000? 5000? My money can even buy this town a hundred times over and that won't even put a dent to how much gold I have. Second, if I really stole things from you people, why would I stay here and wear this so-called items that I stole from you lot? Why let you all see that I am wearing the things that are pressumably yours? Hmmm? Third, if I really stole from you guys, you wouldn't be alive right now. Why not kill potential threats? Lastly..." I released a slight amount of killing intent and continued. "With my strength and power, I could kill you all with just my intent. So, mister owner, anything you want to say?"
Feeling my slight killing intent, the owner paled. I know that he thought they could all gang up on me and I would be helpless to resist. Too bad for them, they met me. Soon, the owner retreated two steps then fell on his ass. He then spoke.
"I-I was mistaken. I-It was not you, good lord. Ple-"
"You just said you lost a thousand gold right? And the people around confirmed that what I am wearing are theirs. Isn't that right?"
"The-they are just drunk from last night, good lord. Ha-have mercy."
"Why? You think you could bully me and get away with it? Owner, I hate people who make me waste something. In you and everyone here's case, it's wasting my time. So I will just kill everyone here and be done with it."
The old man began to panic and said. "Lord! Milord! Please! Mercy! We-"
"Seraphiel, Set up a barrier. Let no get out. Sygax, see to it that no one is hiding or listening to this. Hunt down those who did. Kapharel, kill everyone here."
"""By your will, King Belial."""
"NO! MILORD! MERCY! MER... kugh"
The owner couldn't even finish his sentence. His neck had a big slash wound that rendered him unable to speak. After a few minutes of wails and screams, the tavern hall finally was quiet. Seraphiel and Kapharel incinerated every body, organ or blood spill with purifying flames. Soon, the whole tavern was spotless as if nothing happened. Sygax then returned while carrying a steaming cauldron.
I looked at her and massaged the sace between my eyes. "Are you hungry? You sure that's delicious?"
"Don't know but I'm famished."
"Kapharel, care to join her?"
"I'm not really hungry, milord."
"I, too, am not hungry milord."
"Okay. Sygax. Finish the whole cauldron. After that-" Before I could even finish, she already ate the contents of the container she was carrying. "Nevermind. Let's just hurry and get out of here. I want to enter the Great Prairie earlier."
"If you want to go there quicker, why not use the gateway back in the citadel?" asked Sygax who's currently cleaning her fingers.
"And not experience the world as it is? I have been holed up inside a castle for as long as I can remember. I may have gone out but that was for the invasion against the empire. I didn't have the time to know the continent, its situation and current trends. Sure, I could ask Glasya about it but then I wouldn't be able to know it at a personal level."
"So, in short, you want a breather that's why you are travelling?"
"No. I want to see the world using my own eyes. I want to see it so that I could make plans on what to do with it after I conquered it and wiped out humanity."
"You really hate humanity huh?"
"Hate? No. It is much more complex than that."
"Well, I myself hate humans so I am with you. Whatever your plans are, so long as I could enjoy slaughtering humans then I'm in. Besides, you are my master already."
"Mm. Then, let's go."
"You know, milord..." This time, Seraphiel spoke.
"What is it?" Without looking at her, I replied.
"Did you realize that... you have become... a lot softer..."
"No, Seraphiel. I didn't go soft. I just matured."
"What do you mean?" She asked, sounding confused.
"I know that I may be strong now but I am not in the level where I can kill or destroy indescriminately. I do know that no hero could match me but... cherubs and seraphs... I still have no idea how to kill ot turn those guys. I am not scared. It's more of that I don't want to be reckless. I don't want my hard work to go to waste because of my impulsiveness."
"I see. But milord... That wasn't what I am asking."
I turned to look at her and spoke. "Then what is it?"
"You have become more approachable and social. You have also-"
"Yes, my King?"
"I am Belial, Great King of the underworld, Ruler of the North, King of the Damned and Unwanted, Inventor of Machines and Weapons, Embodiment of Wrath and Anti-thesis of God. I am not Lucifer, whose pride made him unapproachable nor am I Belzebub whose envy made him anti-social and apathetic. I am Wrath. I am not the embodiment of rashness, naiivety and stupidity. I know my limits and I know my own shortcomings. Also, I am a Great King. You think anyone could be a King just because they want to? You need something to back that up. Power, influence, subordinates and authority. These things are needed if ever you need to be king. But you are right. I am too soft."
"Wa-wait, my King. I-I didn't say it is bad. I just-"
"It is bad. As a King and as a Sin Embodiment. Let's end that talk. Let's go."
I went out without waiting for my subordinates. I immediately went to the stables where my mount was held. Beside it are the shadow leopards that Seraphiel purchased. It stood up when it spotted me. I scratched my mount behind her ears after I opened her pen.
"We're going now, Avestan."
[To the Great Prairie, master?]
"Yeah." I walked her up to the main road and mounted her. "Let's go."
[Master, what of your companions?]
"They'll catch up later."
Mayor Chianti, Mayor of Milan POV
I slammed my palms at my table when the messenger relayed to me a very crucial information. I cannot believe what I just heard so I asked the messenger again.
"Repeat... Repeat what you just said."
"All members of the Milan Household have died for no apparent reason. This includes Fiore Merchant Union president, Don Giuseppe Milan and your wife and children, sir."
I held unto my head and slumped down on my chair. "My son... What of my son?"
"Sir... We don't know what kind of curse or spell it is but-"
"WHAT OF MY SON?!"
"Every... Everyone related to Milan Household died, mayor. That includes..."
"ENOUGH! GET OUT! NOW!"
I slumped back on my chair after chasing out the messenger. My family... Dead... How... How could happen? Who could've been so merciless to kill a 4 year old boy?! In my despair and rage, I yelled yet again to call my secretary.
"ISABEL! GET YOUR SLOW-AS-FUCK ASS IN HERE!"
A few moments later, a black-haired woman in her 20s came to my office. "Yo-you called, m-mayor?"
"HOW'S THE INVESTIGATION GOING?! TELL ME WHO THE FUCK DID THAT TO MY FAMILY?!"
"Ma-mayor, we still have n-no conclusive evidence on wh-who killed th-the entire Mi-Milan family but-"
"BUT WHAT?! YOU LAZY FUCKS! WHAT ABOUT THE CITY GUARDS! DID THEY NOT FIND ANYTHING SUSPICIOUS?! ARE ALL OF YOU STUPID OR WHAT?! A CITY-WIDE MASSACRE HAPPENED AND YOU DON'T KNOW A FUCK ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON!"
"Ma-mayor, calm-calm down. W-we have di-dispatched li-literaly everyone t-to find the culprit... Bu-but it is just bi-bizarre. I-I mean, how could the cu-culprit be in every house and office a-at the same time?"
I stared at the woman in front of me and spoke in an unhurried manner. "What was that? What did you say?"
"Si-sir, everyone in the Mi-milan family dropped dead in the place where they were found. So-some in their homes li-like the women a-and children while others a-are on the streets and o-offices. The-there are e-even some found inside a-a bro-brothel. A-and, all witnesses would say that no man, woman, child or beast made it. The-there are no wounds found in their bodies, not even a needle wound. The-they just exhibit 1 major similarity: The-they all have purple veins showing up from their head, neck and arms. It is suspected that it is a-"
"A high-class curse spell from a very powerful sorcerer. But how did the Milan family get that sorcerer's ire? Have any members of the family confronted or maybe ridiculed such a person?"
"About that, sir... It seems that-"
Before she could even continue speaking, the space distorted behind her. A few seconds later, 4 figures showed themselves in front of us. They were composed of a young man with black hair and 3 women, all whose beauty can only be described as "kingdom-destroying beauties". But these females didn't have a smile on their faces while looking at us. The young man stepped forward and spoke.
"The mayor, I pressume?"
I stared at the young man who just casually asked me a question, with an anxious look. "Ye-yes, sire. I-I am indeed Milan's ma-mayor."
"Then I would like to ask some questions before I decide on things. First, what do you think of beastmen?"
Baffled by such a question, I answered him in the most logical answer I could say. "They are lowly beings that can be used as commodities for our slave and pet market. They propagate and breed at a fast rate so they are very popular. Are you perhaps... in need of slaves that you personally went here, sire? Managers of the stores in the city would have gladly-"
Before I could finish, the room temperature suddenly dropped. A bone-chilling cold air drifted and enveloped the whole room. The young man in front of me began to change. His black hair turned white and his eyes turned red. When I saw the change, I know I am in trouble. I then remembered the rash action the Merchant Council did: The Holy Crusade. They launched that crusade with the blessing of the Anthropocentric Church with the help of the Central Power Assembly. They wanted to attack the newly-made Great Kingdom of Agmanac after the former Prince of Valois, Prince Beale, won in his war against the biggest country in Avalonia, the Luxum Empire. When he assumed the mantle of Great King and created his kingdom over the former imperial territories, the Central Powers rose up and tried to twart what they though was a fledgling king who won a lucky war. Never did the members of the Central Powers knew the power of information blockade that King Beale implemented. Not only did they not know about the power of his armies, they didn't even know how big his armies are nor did they know about the pact the Hydra King made with the demihumans or the fact that he had weapons that are far beyond the technology we currently possess. After 4 years of fruitless battles, the crusade ended. It ended with the Central Powers losing more than 20 million soldiers and ships that numbers more than a thousand.
Many families were displaced and refugees swarmed to the major cities due to losing their bread winners. It almost resulted to the commoners revolting due to the fruitless endeavor the Central Powers made. The promise of gold and land never happened. Economy worsened and the national armed powers of the countries involved dropped. This was all because of their greed and ambition. The war they started ended in disaster and this is because of a young teen king sitting in a gilded throne. What made me remember this is because of the young man in front of me. Soldiers who survived that war that saw the Hydra King would describe him as 'A white-haired, red-eyed young man whose thirst for blood is immeasurable'. And right now, a young man with the same description is now standing in front of me, exuding bone-chilling bloodlust. I immediately kneeled, which was then followed by Isabel, and spoke.
"Yo-your Majesty... Fo-forgive m-my reception... I-I didn't kn-know you we-were coming... I-"
"Hoo. So you realized who I am. But sorry. I didn't come here for pleasantries, mister mayor. I came here to deliver judgment."
I was shocked with what he just said and I looked up to him. "Si-sire... I-In what way di-did I earn your ire?!"
"If you treat beastmen as commodities then I will treat you as a commodity."
"Mm. You will be the receiver of my anger and this will affect not only you but every one in this town."
He suddenly took out a golden spear from out of nowhere and raised it up. Soon, red and violet auras wrapped it. He then looked at me and said. "For the sins and crimes you inflicted upon the beastmen and other non-human people... I, Belial, Great King of the Underworld is sentencing you to die along with every human here in this city. Despair. For you will not go to heaven ot hell nor will you enter the cycle of reincarnation. You will forever be tormented on a desolate world from which all that I judged go. And know that no salvation will come to you except agony, misery and anguish. EXEDIUM PECCATUM ANIMARUM, ABBADON!"
Suddenly, A black pool emerged where I was kneeling. As I tried to get myself to stand up, I found that I cannot take my hands and knees off the pool. Then, black skeletal arms grabbed my feet and my arms as I was in all fours. I was horrified to see that the arms are coming from the from the pool I am on. Soon, skulls with cold bluish flames in their eye sockets emerged and tightly latched itself to me. I tried to wrest myself away but to no avail. Soon, I started to sink into the black pool on which I was on. I tried to look back to the Hydra King and screamed.
"WHY?! WHAT HAVE WE DONE WRONG?! WE HAVE PAID THE INDEMNITIES OF THE PAST WAR! WE EVEN WANTED TO ESTABLISH A PEACEFUL CONNECTION WITH YOU SO WHY?! WHY DO THIS TO US?!"
The Hydra King just stared at me and said. "Because you are all trash and I don't like trash. Your fake gestures of peace will never gain my recognition. But the main reason why I am doing this? The last war or your so-called crusades was a joke. I can't even get myself to be angry with such an unrefined war operation. Anyway, the main reason why I am doing this is because..." He walked towards me and whispered in my ears. "I hate Mankind."
After he said that, I started to sink faster in the black pool. The last scene I saw was him looking at me coldly before everything went dark. Soon, my consciousness began to fade away. Father... mother... sister... I am sorry... I have doomed us all...
When the bodies of the mayor and his secretary was gone, I decided to rummage the whole office. With the help of my entourage, we have secured documents and parchments regarding the selling and sources of beastmen slaves. We also collected everything about slavery and their clients. Lastly, we secured the counter spell to revoke the slave seal that are carved here in the Merchant Union. When we finished scouring the place, I then gave my aides some job.
"Sygax, try to collect every valuable item this city holds. From coins and small trinkets to ornaments, chandeliers, statues or even coat of arms. Everything you think holds value, take it. I trust a dragon's lust for valuable objects so don't fail me. Rob this city clean of any important items."
"Hahaha! It will be done, master!" She then ran off and started to ransack the city hall we are in.
"Yes, Your Majesty."
"Gather all beastmen in the city square. Take those who are chained, caged and jailed out. Heal them and make them gather in the square. If some decide to escape, let them. But to those who will stay, I will teleport them to my kingdom. If I reach the beastmen clans then I will return them."
"Your will be done." She spread her wings and flewout of the window, smashing it in the process.
"Lastly, Seraphiel. You will-"
"My King... Before that, might I ask you a question?"
"Mm. Go on."
"It's like this, Your Majesty. I know you hate humans. I myself hate their shamelessness. But the children and infants... They are but innocent souls... Why include them in your wrath?"
I looked at her for a moment and spoke. "There is no such thing as Innocence in Humanity, Seraphiel. Every human's soul is imprinted with the will to do sins. In order to make that cycle stop, I need to wipe out humanity. I don't care whether through 'conversion' or annihilation. The mere fact that they are God's mortal image made them all my enemies. So, to weaken God, I must destroy His precious humanity. A human, whether an infant, a child, a teenager, an adult or an elder, they are all my enemies. And I will crush all of them under my merciless steel. Did that answer your question, Seraphiel?"
"Then what od your conscience, my King? If you chose, you could rule over them. You could make them slaves and such if you want. You can control their lives if you want. Should you really do it this way?"
"I'll tell you this, Seraphiel. There is no such thing as absolute control. Even God couldn't control his own Court which led to the Great War. If I did what you asked, the humans will go complacent. They will plot and backstab you whenever they can and will execute you if they are able. Their treachery is contagious and soon as other humans noticed such things that they think are possible, they will rise up, challenge and attack the hand that fed and groomed them. They are a traitorous species that aren't worthy of being under my rule."
"But the elves, dwarves, beastmen, sirens, mermen, dragon-kin and demons are also capable of being traito-"
"THEY ARE NOT CREATED BY GOD! CAN'T YOU FUXKING GET THAT IN YOUR HEAD?! STUPID BITCH, THEY ARE CREATED BY OTHER ENTITIES THAT ARE LESSER OR WITH THE SAME POWER AS GOD! GREAT SPIRITS! LESSER GODS! AND EVEN CHAOS MADE THEM! BUT THEY AREN'T CREATED BY GOD! GOD CREATED HUMANITY WITH HIS OWN HANDS! THAT'S WHY I WILL ANNIHILATE THEIR ENTIRE RACE TO GET BACK TO GOD! DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW, YOU INSOLENT DOTARD! ANY OTHER MEANS OF PERSUASION FROM YOU AND I WILL DISENTIGRATE YOU FROM WHERE YOU STAND! DO NOT DARE QUESTION ME, ANGEL. I AM YOUR MASTER AND YOU ARE MY SERVANT! KNOW YOUR PLACE!" I said while releasing the full extent of my aura and bloodlust through my 'Dominion' skill.
Seraphiel paled and immediately kneeled, not because she wanted to but because of my pressure. "Ease your wrath, sire! I mean no disrespect! I only wanted to save you from the guilt should you have any! I never wanted to lecture nor did I forget our relationship so please... I beg you... Ease your wrath." She said as she lowered her head to me as if kowtowing.
I walked towards her and slapped her in the face, which made her fly out of the building and crashing some 300 meters from the mayor's office. I then shadow-walked to her and grabbed her face then lifted her up and said.
"Try to lecture me again and I will kill you. Question my command again and I will kill you. Reprimand or rebuke me again, guess what? I will still kill you. Got that, bitch?"
I then slammed her to the ground, creating a large whole. Watching her sorry figure, I spoke. "There will be no second time. You are made to serve me. If you show another thing that displeases me, I don't mind ending your life."
She shakily kowtowed to me and said. "Thank you for the reprieve, Your Majesty."
"Hmph. Gather all critters in this city. We will send them to my domain after they are all gathered. Now, SCRAM!" I screamed at her with force which made her tumble away from me.
"You should be gentle on the ladies, Belial. But I have to admit. Your harem has many exquisite beauties in it." Suddenly, a familiar voice sounded behind me.
Without even turning back, I spoke. "What is it, Lucifer?"
"Ahh... I would rather call me by my real name though." The woman behind me giggled mischievously.
"You do know I hate wasting my time on pointless banters."
"Booo... I find Little Bell much cuter than you are now. Though you have grown more-"
"ENOUGH!" I turned around to face the woman. "IF YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS WITH ME THEN GO AWAY! HEAVEN HAS ITS EYES ON YOU AND IF YOU ARE NEAR ME, THEY WILL SEE ME TOO!"
"Temper, temper. Sheesh. Fine. I bring you news." She said with a pouting face.
"What is it then?"
"Haaa... Okay. The church has began initializing their plan tounify this continent under one religion. They also have plans to indocrinate those in the other continents."
"You mean the reach of the church only applies here in Avalonia?"
"Yes. So it's better if you summon someone who would be your envoy to the other continents. That will twart the Anthropocentric church's advance."
"Hmmm... You want me to establish a new religion?"
"That is for you to decide. I also have other news. Care to hear them?"
"Yes. So hurry/"
"Impatient as always. The countries have began to move. The southern countries have began to fight each other due to the lack of resources and food. Large skirmishes have been imminent in the region and most people has been displaced by war. The Central Powers have began their move to further fan the war on the south. They are supplying crude weapons and supplies at a ridiculous price. They have also began to pick a woman to send to you. I heard they are all stunners... Well, a bit lackluster than your entourage. Lastly, Sandalphon's awakening is near. Do hurry to get to him first before any agent of heaven gets to him."
"Mm. Got it."
"Such a short reply. Won't I get a 'thank you' or something?"
I snorted and spoke. "Why would I? You're using me and I am using you. This is an equal exchange. Why do I need to thank you when you are already benefitting from my influence?"
"You are really uncute. Well, enough of that charade. I will contact you again when I am able. Good luck on your endeavors."
"I don't need luck. What I need are authority, power, influence and people. I have no need for things as illogical as luck. Besides, I am a demon king. Such good karma is unattainable for the likes of me."
"You never know." She than vanished into thin air.
"Fucking Lucifer. Hmph." I turned around and walked towards the stable where I left Avestan.
King Lodomeria POV
I walked towards the vast halls of the southern wing of my castle to personally talk to my daughters about my plans to send them to the Agmanacian King. I was escorted by my chief minister and my knight commander, along with some of the king's knights. When the guards saw me and my party, they paled and tried to block our path.
"Yo-your M-majesty... I-I'm very so-sorry b-but under Pri-princess Me-meleina's command, none may co-come near her cha-chambers." A guard stated then blocked the path wth his spear which was mimicked by his partner.
"PREPOSTEROUS!" My knight commander, Ser Rivne exclaimed. "YOU DARE BARRED THE ENTRY OF THE KING USING THE FIRST PRINCESS NAME?! INSOLENCE! WHO HAS THE HIGHER AUTHORITY, THE PRINCESS OR THE KING?!"
"I... no... W-we."
I intervened between them and said. "Commander, lower your tone. You there, I command you to let us through. If you still believe that my daughter's orders are higher than mine then in mere seconds, you'd only be as tall as your head."
The guards shivered and took away their spears that are blocking our way. Soon, we proceeded walking towards my daughters quarters but before we resumed our march, I left two knights to guard the two guards in case they tip off someone of our arrival. After a few minutes, we arrived at the door of my first daughter's room. But even before we could enter, distinct sounds can be heard from beyond the door.
"AHH! YEAH! RAVAGE ME MORE, VARASH! STIR MY PUSSY MORE!"
"SHUT IT, YOU WHORE! I'D RATHER HAVE YOU SUCK MY DICK THAN HAVE YOUR MOUTH FLAPPING! COME! SUCK ON IT, BITCH!"
"URGH... UGH UGH OOOHHH! SLURP! AHHH!!! SUCH A LIVELY DICK! I WOULD GLADLY SERVE SUCH A MIGHTY DICK!"
"SUCK ON MY COCK AND BALLS TOO, PRINCESS!"
"YESH! YESH DUBNO! AHH! I'M SURROUNDED BY SUCH SPLENDID COCKS!"
"AHHH! YOUR PUSSY IS SO GOOD, HIGHNESS! BETTER THAN THE MOST EXPENSIVE ESCORTS IN A BROTHEL! I'M CUMMING! I'LL BE CUMMING INSIDE YOUR PUSSY!"
"ME TOO! GRACIOUSLY ACCEPT IT!"
"I AS WELL, PRINCESS. I'M SPRAYING IT ON YOUR FACE!"
"YESH YESH YESH! CUM ON ME! FILL ME UP! BATH ME IN YOUR CUMS!"
"IT'S COMING OUT!"
"AHHHH!!! WOW, SUCH A LARGE AMOUNT! VARASH, DO YOU WANT ME TO BECOME PREGNANT?! HOW MUCH ARE YOU PUMPING INSIDE ME?!"
"SWITCH WITH ME, VARASH! I'M NEXT TO THIS WHORE PRINCESS' PUSSY!"
"NO FAIR, SENIOR ZYMNE! I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE NEXT!"
"SHUT IT DUBNO! YOU WILL HAVE YOUR TURN AFTER I PUMP MY SEED INSIDE THIS CUMDUMP'S PUSSY!"
I was stunned at what I just heard. I looked around and saw that everyone had the same dumbfounded face as I do. So I wasn't hearing things. My initial shock turned to anger and this was transmitted to all my followers. The knights readied their swords and so did my knight commander. He slashed the door with his sword and it crumbled under the powerdul swing. We rushed inside only to see Meleina who looked like a whore in a whorehouse as she is covered with cum all over her face and body. We could even see cum drip out of her pussy before she covered herself. Beside her are her personal knights, whom were tasked to protect her. One of them, Zymne, was the son of my own knight commander, Ser Rivne. I looked at Rivne and saw that he was fumming with rage. Even I am ready to lash at his son, much less him. This is the ultimate disgrace a family heir could do: have sex with the one he is tasked to protect. In this case, it's my daughter. They failed it miserably as included in their protection is to protect my daughter's chastity.
I walked unhurriedly towards my daughter, whose knights are now standing beside her bed naked but standing in attention. When I reached her bed, I reached out to her and slapped her. I slapped her so hard that her face swelled up. Blood could be seen streaking from her mouth. She looked at me with a horrified expression as she carressed her cheeks. I then looked at her guards and spoke.
"You three are supposed to be my daughter's protectors. Her knights who should have done their life oaths to protect my daughter against any harm, that which includes harm in her chastity. Yet why... why did you lot broke that oath?! WHY?!" I screamed at them while releasing my bloodlust.
The three shivered so much that their knees quaked. It was Zymne who answered me. "Yo-Your Ma-majesty... W-we did it under Pri-princess Me-meleina's behest. I... We we-were powerless to re-resist..."
"You called her a bitch, a whore, and a cumdump... My daughter... A royal daughter... The First Princess of Volhynia... was called as such... Tell me, Zymne... How do you want to die?" I asked as I unsheated my sword from my waist.
When Zymne saw that, she hurriedly kneeled and said. "Tha-that was what Pri-princess wanted to hear! I-I am just doing wha-what she wanted me to role play! I-it was all an act!"
Before I swung down my sword on his head, I was stopped by Rivne. "You dare stop me?!"
"No, Your Majesty. Such cowardice isn't worthy to receive His Majesty's blade. Please, let me. I will do it to regain my familys honor."
I looked at him and nodded. "I will give you this one but you will not be stopping me for punishing the remaining two, right?"
"Yes, Your Majesty. Thank you for giving me a chance to regain my honor." He bowed deeply towards me.
"Hmph! Knights, take this two to the dungeon. Oh and before that..." I swung my sword towards their cocks and sliced it off their bodies. "Have them eat their cocks to shut them up."
Blood splurted as the area where their cocks once were, now had nothing but a gaping wound. The two wanted to scream but their voices where blocked by their own cocks. I then watched my knight commander confront his firstborn.
"You have shamned me, Zymne. Not only me but our entire family. He have tarnished our family's unblemished record of loyalty, bravery and commitment. So, with His Majesty's approval, I will hereby punish you for your crimes. For sexually touching the person you are supposed to protect, it will cost you an arm." He slashed Zymne's right arm and it quickly separated from Zymne's body. "For not fulfilling your oaths and vows, that will cost you another arm." Rivne slashed the other arm of his son, cutting it off from his body. "For being unable to stand firmly with conviction, pride and bravery that resulted in cowardice, the payment are your legs." He then slashed his sword horizontally towards his son's thighs. With one quick flash, his son now dropped to the floor without his legs. Zymne, who was shouting before due to the loss of his arms, now wailed even louder after his legs were removed from his body. "Lastly... For betraying the trust that the Royal family gave you, the payment... is your life."
Before Zymne could talk, Rivne swung his sword and removed his son's head from his body. Tears could be seen streaking from the knight commander's face yet he faced me and bowed. "I have subdued the traitor, My King."
"Have the sevants remove those things out of this room. Then you could have a proper burial for your so-"
"I have no such son, Your Majesty. I only have one son: Olykus." He said while still bowing.
"I see. Have those traitor's parts collected and have them burned in the royal incinerator."
"By your will, my King." He said as he removed himself in front of me.
I then drew my attention towards my still-shocked daughter. "As for you... Tell me... What punishment should you have?"
She hurriedly tried to grab unto me and wailed. "I-I won't do it again, Father! I-I will be a good girl a-and a pro-proper lady so please! Don't punish me!"
"Don't casually call me father. I don't have a daughter like you. Knights! Have her cleaned and cleansed. I will send her to exile to Volhynia's most rural and desolate place, Ostroh. She will be put into the local abbey of that place where she will learn the virtues she have lost."
Hearing my order, Meleina snapped. "FATHER! YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME! I AM YOUR DAUGHTER! DON'T DO THIS! YOU... YOU CAN SEND ME UP NORTH AND BE THAT BRAT KING'S WIFE! THEN YOU AND I COULD RULE THE ENTIRE CONTINENT! WITH MY SEX SKILLS, I DOUBT THAT BRAT COULD EVEN LAST A SINGLE ROUND! I KNOW HOW TO FIND A MAN'S WEAK POINT AND I CAN MAKE HIM MY SLAVE THROUGH MY TECHNIQUES! HE WILL BE MY SEX TOY IF ONLY YOU WOULD-"
"SILENCE!" I snapped back at her. "SUCH SHAMELESSNESS! I AM ASHAMED TO EVEN SAY YOU ARE MY DAUGHTER! TAKE HER AWAY! I DECREE THAT THAT WOMAN BE STRIPPED OF HER ROYAL PRIVELEGES, HER ROYAL POWERS AND ALL HER PROPERTIES AND ASSETS WILL BE RETURNED TO THE CROWN! ALL TITLES THAT SHE HAS ARE NOW NULL AND VOID! SHE WILL LIVE AS A COMMONER SO LONG AS I SAY SO AND THIS WILL CONTINUE ON EVEN AFTER I HAVE DIED! SHE WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE ROYAL FAMILY AND LINEAGE! I HEREBY BANISH HER TO OSTROH WHERE SHE WILL BECOME A NUN IN AN ABBEY THERE! THIS ORDER IS IRREVOKABLE AND NO ONE CAN CHANGE IT EXCEPT ME! NOW, TAKE THAT DISGUSTING PIECE OF FILTH AWAY FROM ME!"
"NOOOOO! FATHER!!! PLEASE1! NOOOOOOO!" Meleina was then carried out of the room by the knights and servants. Soon she can no longer be seen or heard.
"This is a disaster..." I grumbled as I massaged my temples. I looked at the ministers and knights left and said. "Should anyone daretalk about this or spread it to someone else, I would have him and eight generations of his or her family killed. This is my warning to anyone of you. One leakage and all of you dies."
"""""We will never disclose of this, Your Majesty.""""""
"Do you have information regarding my second daughter?"
"Princess Cassandra is clean,Your Majesty. No dark secrets. Her hobbies circulate from reading, rapier practice, spell casting and etiquette. As you have commanded me to put her on surveillance, no man had came near Her Highness, even her own male siblings."
"It was my mistake... I should've put Meleina in surveillance rather than Cassandra. We might have discovered this sooner and reacted much better."
"In my shallow opinion, Your Majesty... Princess Cassandra is just weird but not insane or a dotard. She is secretive but only due to her curiousity, most especially in magic. Other than that, she is a prim lady with good etiquette and poise."
"I was really mistaken. I thought it was Cassandra who I should be wary about. SHe is secretive, ellusive and sophisticated. My doubt on her is simply a misunderstanding. The one who I never suspected was the one who was supposed to be under surveillance. But no matter. Come. Let us go to my other daughter. She will be carrying a heavy responsibility after all.
All of my ministers and knights nodded and we quickly left that cum-smelling room. Hopefully, my second daughter wouldn't betray my expectations.

Presidential Chamber, Turin, Capital of the Merchant Union
President Nawab POV
"Ahh! Such an excellent pussy! I should give my thanks to the Fiore Merchant Guild for giving these excellent cocksleeves to me. Ohhh! I'm cumming!"
"Nyaaahhh!!! Nyooo! I will get pregnyant!"
"Hooo... That was one gripping pussy. Hmmm... That cow there! Yes, you! Come here! I wanna taste those tits of yours and see if you can really produce the sweetest milk!"
I grabbed her and slammed my cock right on her pussy. "Wow This one is warm. A little loose but the warmth is extraordinary! Ah! Mhmm! Fuck! Your hole's good, cow! So much that I am already cumming! Gladly receive it!"
"Doooon't! Today's not my safe daaaay!"
"Hmph. A slave dare defy me?! When I say I'll come inside, I WILL COME INSIDE! OOOOOHHHH! I came with so much strength inside the cow girl. When I took out my cock from the cow's hole, my thick cum dripped out from there. "Now... Whose next?"
Before I could even continue, a knock could be heard from the entrance door. I got irritated so I shouted. "I TOLD EVERYONE NOT TO DISTURB ME!"
"Your Excellency, I bring you important news. It is very important that is why I dared to disturb your 'fun' time!" The voice beyond the door replied.
Annoyed, I dashed towards the door and opened it. "What is it then? This improtant news."
The messenger, who was a woman, hurriedly covered her eyes. "President... Please get dressed first... I am a chaste woman..."
"Enough! Just tell me the damn news. I don't care if you continue covering your face." We are part of the Anthropocentric church and it has been decreed that chaste women mustn't be defiled and deprieved of their innocence. As such, I told her to continue her report while covering her eyes.
"Milan have seized making contact with us, sir. Our seer, Madam Cambay, used her claivoyance to see Milan's condition and confirmed it to be deserted and empty. Milan had no signs of life. It was as if the whole city's populace just disappeared into thin air. We have sent our scout hawks to further confirm the situation as it is very suspicious. What are your orders, sir?"
I stood their in adaze for a moment and exclaimed. "SEND OUR FASTEST RIDERS TO MILAN AT ONCE! WE DO NOT HAVE THE STOCK FOR OUR CLIENTS AND ALL OUR RESOURCE FOR SLAVES ARE IN MILAN! HURRY!"
"Sir, there... there is still one thing I haven't told you that the seer wanted to convey to you."
"What is it?!"
"In Milan's City Hall, inside it, she saw a message. And... this message is something that even the seer panicked and grew scared when she saw it."
"Wha-what is the message, messenger? Tell me!"
"It says: 'You have incurred my ire. I will return to finish what I have started'. That's the message the seer saw." The messenger finished while still covering her eyes.
I slumped down on the floor as my knees gave away. I looked listlessly around and pondered: How did I gain the anger of the people who made that letter?! I'm sure they annihilated everyone in Milan. But that city is a big city! With more than 50 thousand mercenaries and soldiers, how could they not defend themselves long enough for reinforcements arrived?! If there is a big group heading to any major city, we here in the capital will immediately be informed by those who saw such army! Yet no report, not even a single clue who attacked or in what way! Did... Did we incur a powerful being's anger? Perhaps... a demon?
