few months from now.
However, since they arrived so early, someone must have pulled the schedule up considerably.

Whether it was intended to protect Rayan or to torment him was unknown, but there was a significant lack of consideration for the child.

When Rayan saw me staring at him, he lowered his head deeply.
As if asking me how I was doing, I looked at Roksa, and she gave me a sad smile.

It was easy to guess that Roksa’s intentions played a significant role in Rayan’s sudden arrival at the ducal palace.
If that’s the case, then I should be a good friend to her daughter.

From now on, you’re my Four Kings.
Even though it may not seem like it, I’m a Great Demon King who values my subordinates, so I’ll treat you well.”

As a tyrant who had made a sudden career change to a holy king, I smiled and extended my hand to Rayan.
Rayan hesitated for a moment but took my hand.


“Mom, I’m hungry! Let’s eat.”

“What about Dad? He won’t wait for us?”

“Dad said to eat without him.”

“He’ll cry again.”

“It’s okay.
You can comfort him.”

Loksa-na laughed at my words and suggested we have snacks instead of dinner.

“You can eat ice cream, sherbet, cake, whatever you want.
We won’t say anything if you can’t eat much for dinner because you’re too full.
Of course, our foodie girl will eat dinner deliciously too.”

“Huh? Why?”

“It’s just one of those days.”

I looked at the bread in Ryan’s hand and hesitated.
It wasn’t hard to guess that Ryan had been starving all day.

“Until I awaken my abilities, I lived by stealing food.”

“Then let’s go on a picnic in the garden.
We’ll bring sandwiches and the bread Yumo made.
We can play while waiting for Dad to come.”

Loksa-na nodded her head as if it was a good idea.
She smiled politely, thinking about what to do with the prince’s servants.

“I’m sorry.
It was a sudden decision, and the annex that you and everyone else will be using is not yet ready.
How about spending some time in the garden together? Everyone must be tired after the two-month march….”

Loksa-na spoke and looked at the thin woman with a guarded expression.
I gave Ryan the remaining bread and turned his gaze away.

“I understand.
But I need to manage the following group, so please take care of the prince.”

“Yes, you can talk to my butler about managing the annex.”

Chamber, who had been silently guarding the whole time, stepped forward.

Chamber was the chief butler of the Duke’s household and was in charge of managing the information organization under Urien.

He was a regular in the novel, and although he always had a smiling face in front of me, I knew very well that he was a scary person.

“Butler Grandpa!”

I gestured as if telling Chamber to listen closely, and he willingly knelt down and bowed his head.

“From now on, you’re the devil king’s subordinate, Prince.
Grandfather will also make you one of the Four Heavenly Kings, so let’s do some bad things together.”

At the mention of doing bad things, Chamber smiled knowingly and said it was an honor.
He was indeed quick-witted.
I gave Chamber a peck on the cheek and took Layan’s hand, leading him upstairs.

“Before we go on our picnic, I’ll introduce you to my little brother.
He’s really ugly!”

“Tilly, I told you not to say that to Lona.
Even babies can understand.”

While Roxana pretended to lecture me, she signaled to Chamber to take the others to the annex.
I pulled on Layan’s arm and urged him on.

“Tilly, you’re hurting your friend.”

“He’s not a friend.
He’s a wimp.”

“Where did you learn that kind of language?”

“From dad.”

I released my grip on Layan’s arm and licked my lips with a late-coming groan.

Roxana laughed mockingly and advised us to go slowly as we started climbing the stairs and running.
As if Roxana’s words were a signal, Layan and I both stumbled and fell together.
As soon as he fell, Layan got up and helped me up.

“Damn, this body of mine.
It doesn’t listen to me.”

I wish I could control my limbs as I wanted, even for just one day.

Fortunately, the entire hallway was covered with soft carpet for me, so I wasn’t hurt and didn’t hurt much.

“I told you not to run, Mom.
Are you hurt? Are you okay, Prince?”

“Mom, hug me.”

“I have to walk on my own two feet.”

“No, hug me.”

Roxana lifted both Layan and me up, as if there was no choice.
It was a difficult task to lift two young children at the same time, but she was not just a knight.
Suddenly, when our sight went up, Layan looked up at Roxana with a bewildered expression.

“Shall I put you down?”


Layan’s voice was very small, but it was heard well, perhaps because he was close.
Roxana and I exchanged glances and smiled at the same time.
