re was nothing wrong with her body and that she might just be predisposed to sleeping a lot.

 

Since then, her father didn’t bring it up again, but he would wake her up if she slept too long, showing his concern.
On those days, even if she was grumpy and irritable because her sleep was interrupted, Yumo would just accept it.
He wanted to tell her not to spoil the child, but since he was the one causing the fuss, he couldn’t say anything.

 

“Well, I’m usually strict anyway.”

 

Besides, he was already grown up mentally, so he wouldn’t develop bad habits.
As he talked about his worries about Yumo, he muttered to himself, “What lullaby should I sing?” Then suddenly he looked at the clock and had to change his plans.

 

“Why are you like that?”

 

“I don’t want to sleep.
I want to play with Daddy.”

 

Today was a holiday, so he could visit Yurian, who was working at home, at any time.
He had finished his snack and Yurian had been in his office for more than four hours, so he had to pull him out and make him exercise.

 

So he decided to teach Yurian how to play like a child today.
Originally, playing like a child required a villain, a hostage, and a hero, not a mother, father, and baby.

“Dad, hello!”

 


As I burst into Yuri’s office without any warning, Yuri looked surprised at first, but then smiled brightly when he saw me.

 

“Tilly, did you come to see Dad?”

 

“Yeah, let’s play.”

 

“Our pretty one wanted to play with Dad.
Where should we go to play?”

 

“The garden.”

 

Yuri seemed to want to carry me, but I insisted on walking and dragged my rabbit doll along with me as we headed to the garden.
After surveying the garden, I tied the rabbit doll to a suitable branch and climbed up on a rock, using the rabbit’s ears to shout to Yuri.

 

“I’ve kidnapped your rabbits! If you want to get the hostage back, you have to follow my orders!”

 

Yuri, who had come to the garden to play with his lovely daughter rather than work, was a little surprised to be threatened like this.
But to play along, he asked what he should do.

 

“Run.”

 

“…What?”

 

“Do some warm-up exercises and run around this mansion once.
Got it?”

Upon my command, Yuri turned around to check the mansion behind us.
The mansion was divided into the main building and the annex, and we were currently in the central garden.
Behind the annex was a lake and a forest, so going around it once was almost impossible, especially for Yuri who lacked exercise.

 

“Here?”

 

“Oh! Don’t you want to get your hostage back?”

 

As I threatened the pitiful rabbit with a twig, Yuri looked at me with an even more confused expression.
It might seem like I was playing a prank on Yuri since he didn’t have any friends, but my intentions were not just a simple prank.

 

During the time Roxanna was pregnant with Royana, Yuri gained weight rapidly while eating together.
Unlike Roxanna who recovered her original body condition soon after giving birth to Royana, Yuri seemed to have no intention of exercising.

 

Sitting on his knees every day, I knew.
I knew that he was gaining weight around his belly and thighs because of sitting for long periods of time while working.
Just like my senior year in high school.
And such weight doesn’t come off easily.

 

“I have a question, um, so…”

 

“Call me the Demon King.”

 

“Yes, Demon King.
First of all, what kind of rabbit is that?”

 

“He’s a prince from a neighboring country.”

 

“What is the reason that I have to rescue the neighboring country’s rabbit prince?”


 

“The neighboring country’s rabbit prince has value for my father’s country.”

 

“What? Then it’s not really a good thing even if the rabbit prince is rescued, right?”

 

“That’s just the way the world works.”

 

I stood tall with my hands on my waist and shouted confidently, and Yurian grabbed his stomach and started laughing.
Actually, this story was quite realistic for Yurian right now.
As he said, it could mean taking on unnecessary responsibilities, but if done well, it could provide a pretext for intervening in the Kingdom of Celis.

 

Yurian never does anything that results in losses.
He may appear crying and foolish in front of his family, but he is a person with so much ability that he was able to wrest real power from nobles who had held it for centuries, in just ten years.
However, it remained to be seen whether this incident would result in a loss or a gain.

 

Yurian’s eyes momentarily became sharp, but when our eyes met, he smiled foolishly again, raised his hand and asked.

 

“Then I’ll ask one more question, Your Majesty.
What benefit would I gain if I rescue the hostage?”

 

“It’s simple.
We would gain the neighboring country.”

 

“I don’t want the neighboring country, Your Majesty.”

“Then just give the kingdom to the prince.
There’s nothing wrong with becoming friends with the neighboring country’s king.”

 

“Hmm…”

 

“If you’re trying to rescue a friend, then the condition doesn’t have to be the whole mansion, just running around the garden once will do.”

 

I pretended to be merciful, extending my chest.
Actually, I had no intention of making him run around the whole mansion from the beginning.
I had intended to lead the story as in the original setting for the protagonist, but the most important thing was the health and fitness of the rich father with a big belly.

 

Yurian, who was considering the condition of running around the garden, accepted my threat with a calm mind.
I ran alongside Yurian under the pretext of supervising.
Yurian was faster, but my stamina was better.
After completing a lap, Yurian breathed heavily as if it was difficult.

 

“Now you’re going to let the rabbit prince go?”

 

“Yeah!”

 

I released the rabbit and approached Yurian, touching his belly.
Now that we had started exercising once, it was time to give him shock therapy to exercise steadily.

 

“Daddy’s belly is bigger and softer than the rabbit prince!”

 

Yurian looked at me in shock, and I gave a pure smile and spoke firmly.

 

“Lose weight.”

 

“Yes, Your Majesty.”

 

Once again, in today’s playtime, the great demon king maintained the peace and happiness of the household through hostages and threats.
