804 Maid“s Ambitionmen would always have their own methods of relaxation.after being busy for the entire day at work, you would return home so tired that you wanted to go to sleep right out on the street. if a cute girl could greet you at the door in lace maid attire with a sweet smile…
“master, welcome home. would you like to eat first, or take a shower, or…”
ahem ahem, male readers probably understand the rest without me needing to say it out loud.
i admit that i was a huge maid lover. still, men had to have some hobbies!
“is a man still a normal man if he’s not a pervert!?”
i said such a sentence with great pride back in the day. i requested that elisa “welcome me back home” and “wake me up” every day. of course, such services weren’t perverted versions at all, as i was a skeletal lich back then, so what would i even be able to do? still, i would never forget how icy her expression was after i requested such services. she even treated me coldly for an entire month afterwards!
in fact, in order to make elisa obediently wear maid attire, not only did i threaten her with how much she owed me for raising her, i even almost kneeled and hugged her legs… cough cough, i didn’t mention anything at all!
from a certain standpoint, fine, from a gentleman’s standpoint, my “education” for elisa was a complete failure.
“i don’t understand. even though she was clearly so cute and obedient when she was younger, how did she grow up to become an iron maiden like margaret?”
back when elisa was just a little girl, she really did do everything that i asked, such as smiling sweetly and greeting me with “welcome home, master”, “be careful outside, master”, and so on. but once she grew up a little and understood more hings, her obedient child self instantly into my dark history where she would immediately go on a rampage the instant that i mentioned it.
currently, the familiar iciness in her silver eyes had melted. she raised her dress and spoke my favorite welcoming words in such a sweet voice. her beauty and attitude would both receive full marks. she was basically the perfect maid that i could only dream of. yet, i kept feeling chills run down my spine as goosebumps appeared all over my skin.
“perhaps, i might truly die this time…”
10 minutes later, i was feeling even more confused as i enjoyed the familiar scenery and relaxed myself in the yard of my old home.
i was no novice who hadn’t seen the world before. i had witnessed plenty of personal domains and environments. i had seen hundreds of soul worlds capable of creating environments that were incredibly realistic. however, my old home was completely realistic and exactly as i remembered it.
black pearl grapes grew on grape vines in the back. this was a rare magical plant that was bitter and disgusting to eat directly. however, the wine made from these grapes would be incredibly delicious. the wine would even have the miraculous effect of calming the soul, meaning that these grapes were an incredibly rare magic ingredient.
black pearl grape wine was also one of the very few “foods” that high-level dead were capable of enjoying.
i had spent a great deal of effort in order to successfully grow the black pearl grapes. the entire garden was designed just for them. if the black pearl grapes were moved from their original location, they should have instantly withered and died away, yet these tiny black grapes were the same as what i recalled.
the most incomprehensible part of all was the rack underneath the grape vines, rather than the grapes themselves.
the leftmost pillar had hundreds of knife markings from a certain person measuring their height while growing up. the knife markings were identical to how they should have been.
an illusion or soul world projection would have requirements for the caster. the soul world was only capable of containing things that the caster knew about and had memories of. even if the thing wasn’t like that in real life, the soul world could change reality as long as the caster’s will was strong enough.
but from a different standpoint, anything that the caster didn’t know about or didn’t pay attention to would naturally not be within the soul world.
i tasted the familiar taste of black pearl grape wine in my mouth. this was a toxin for anyone living, but it caused me to recall the past.
many tiny details that elisa wouldn’t possibly have paid attention to back then were now fully recreated in front of me. it was as if elisa truly could control the world. i had never even heard of such an ability before. i really couldn’t understand such an elisa…
“stop trying to randomly guess. this is the exact same old house from sulfur mountain city. i went there and transported the entire house here.”
“cough cough! you should have told me that much earlier. i almost choked to death.”
i coughed out some blood. my expression right now was probably really awkward.
once i calmed down and glanced once more at the familiar scenery, i felt even more unwilling. how could elisa be so wasteful? once the fighting began here, wouldn’t everything here be destroyed? this was my old home!
that’s right, fighting. i knew from the instant that i saw elisa that things wouldn’t possibly end peacefully this time. not only had i fallen into a trap, the trap was set by someone i truly trusted.
however, i would still have to face the truth in the end…
“elisa, no, cynthia, when did you ally yourself with karwenz!?”
i smiled while asking this question with an angry tone. i hoped for an answer of denial, but reality would always be quite cruel.
elisa was far stronger than any main god i had ever seen before. there was only one possibility to explain her inconceivable strength.
elisa must have been the victorious chaos girl of this generation, as well as the new chaos goddess cynthia.
karwenz was hunting down the chaos girls in order for a remaining chaos girl to become chosen as the true cynthia and obtain the creator goddess’s powers. i originally thought that the victorious chaos girl would be someone such as didina or leona.
the chaos girl who became cynthia would still retain her original personality, after all. she would simply have perfected her personal evolution in all areas after devouring other countless weaker chaos girls. she would become an existence stronger than any other main god. if i was karwenz, i would definitely have one of my own allies become the victorious chaos girl.
“karwenz contacted me after the battle of hell. we reached a mutual alliance due to certain shared benefits. to be honest with you, your younger brother is far easier to talk with than you are.”
i finally knew why elisa would always go missing for such long periods of time now. once the chaos girl hunt began, elisa would naturally have exposed what she really was the moment that she appeared in front of me, due to her incredibly swift evolution.
this all meant that elisa had betrayed me more than 10 years ago.
perhaps much information had actually been exposed by my secretary, the highest-level spy of all, rather than human royals with a secret chaos abyss bloodline.
i understood even less now. i was even getting quite angry.
shared benefits? what benefits could karwenz and elisa possibly share? karwenz would find it fun to destroy most of the world and throw everything into utter chaos, but how could elisa possibly benefit from that? had she forgotten everything about law that i had previously taught her? could it be that elisa now agreed with demon society’s foolish law of the jungle now that she became a demon?
“karwenz feels that you’ll be a huge obstacle, so he wants me to restrict you, especially since he knows what you intend to do. as for me, what do you think i want more than anything else?”
elisa sat down right in front of me. her cheeks were rather red since she wasn’t used to drinking wine. a cool breeze blew past, causing her silver long hair to flutter in the wind; it was quite a beautiful scene.
however, i was rather astonished to hear her words.
i stopped to contemplate. what elisa wanted more than anything else? perhaps i had never really considered this before.
“what you want? ever since little, i would give you everything that you wanted. you can tell me directly if there’s anything you want, you know!? what could karwenz possibly give you?”
why was she calling my name at this time? however, my head was really hurting now because harloys was digging her claws into my head.
“you’ve probably never even thought before about why i was willing to do everything for your sake and follow you for all this time.”
i fell into deep contemplation after hearing her words. perhaps i had already become accustomed to her following me, as i had indeed never considered deeply about why she was loyal to me.
elisa was still speaking in a calm tone, but the slight trembling of her wineglass revealed her inner emotional turmoil.
elisa took a deep breath and decided to finally be direct.
“to become a ruler? to save the world? the glory of law? undefeatable power? what meaning do such things even hold to a woman? just why do you think that a woman like me would work so hard, even to the point of being willing to go to the chaos abyss, even to the point of being willing to devour disgusting demon hearts?”
even if i was a pig, i would understand the answer by now. however, this type of answer was difficult for me to accept.
“idiot, i’m still a woman. what i want is of course a woman’s bliss. roland, karwenz promised to give you to me, for forever, for eternity. i only want you… and now, you really have come.”
elisa blushed with a shy and mysterious redness. however, my current exprsion was probably incredibly awkward.
“it really was as i expected…” harloys sighed, adding insult to injury.
