The Hero Who Returned From The War Has Changed.
The Strongest Hero And The Craziest Princess
In the middle of the capital of the Kingdom of Herssian, a party held by the high aristocracy of the kingdom is taking place in the royal palace at midnight.
All the guests who were chatting happily come to an abrupt stop as they see the crown prince heading to the conference area to start a speech.
Most of those gathered are already aware of the situation but are still looking ahead.
The 18-year-old crown prince with blue eyes, blond hair, and pale skin stands in the middle of the stage, spread his arms wide, and shows an expression of satisfaction and happiness.
”Dear guests, we have gathered today to celebrate an event that has been unprecedented in history and has been haunted by our ancestors since the creation of the kingdom! ”
”I am pleased to inform you that the great 4-year war against the demons is finally coming to an end! ”
Shouts of joy and applause from the audience are heard.
The prince waits for the publics reactions to end and continues with his speech.
”Although it is a moment of happiness for all of us, we must not forget that despite the alliance of the three great kingdoms, victory would not have come so early without the help of one person in particular. ”
”Of course, Im not talking about anyone other than our Hero! ”
”Thanks to his brilliant performance in the past 3 years we have managed to send our troops to the outskirts of the demon capital! ”
The three great kingdoms of Herssian, Jacinto, and Ramantha had allied and declared war on the demons on the Dark continent. Conveniently an oracle of the Goddess reported the possibility of summoning heroes. Without missing a chance each Kingdom managed to summon 1 hero from another world.
The 3 heroes who had the protection of the goddess had a rapid growth in their strength in the 4 years that the war lasted, standing out as the main forces of each Kingdom.
However, among them the Hero of the Kingdom of Herssian was special.
Strength, speed, mastery of all types of weapons, a large amount of mana in his body, and even great tactics on the battlefield.
Everything was first class.
It was superior to that.
It could even be said that there had never been such a powerful warrior in recorded history.
For this reason, the great war, which was supposed to last around 10 years, is about to end in only 4 years.
”The final attack on the capital is scheduled to take place at noon. ”
”Of course, the attack will be led by our hero. ”
Approaching the stage, the third royal princess who is also the heros fiancée interrupts her brother.
”Dear brother, I propose a toast to continuing our celebration, I have brought a shipment of the newest wine that is in vogue nowadays~ ”
Everyone gasped not only because of his proposal but because of his appearance. Like all members of the royal family, he shares traits such as having blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale skin.
However, the beauty of the princess is well known to all the inhabitants of the kingdom, having a slender figure, a pronounced chest, and an extremely attractive face.
The prince who frowned for a moment when interrupted by his sister quickly returns to his cheerful expression upon hearing his sisters proposal.
”Thats a great idea, Isabella. ”
In this way, everyone toasted their drinks, the music started again and the celebration continued.
The mood was at its highest point and the dance was about to start.
”Hello everyone! How have you been? ”
The music stops again.
I hope everyone has missed me.
Five days ago.
Across the sea, outside the demon capital.
”Situation report! All forces are distributed and prepared for the operation! ”
”Excellent ”. General Damian Spinovich replied.
Damian is a middle-aged general, who is in charge of leading the unified army of the alliance. Currently, the entire army is ready and waiting for orders to invade.
”With our numerical advantage, invading the capital will be easy, we will finally defeat those rotten-blooded beasts. ”
When he finished saying this, he turned around and changed his expression to one of admiration.
”All thanks to you Hero. ”
In front of the general is a man who is in his 24 years. Black hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. With 2 swords attached to each side of his hip, and a bow and a spear on his back.
Only one man with that appearance would use that combination of weapons on the battlefield.
It is none other than Franz Alexander, the hero of Herssian.
”You overestimate me general, this victory is due to the combined effort of the Alliance. I have only contributed as anyone else would have done. ”
”HAHAHA, there you go again Franz, always so humble! Its thanks to your strategy of making a surprise attack moving at night through the forest that we were able to get so close to the capital without being seen! ”
It is true that as they began to use this method, they could avoid various fortresses and approach with greater speed and safety.
The general was in a very good mood while chatting with the hero for this reason.
”The only bad thing is that in this way the army has been disorganized and that we find ourselves without access to a supply chain but considering our numerical advantage and the surprise factor the battle should be won in just one day. ” The general said without much concern.
Despite the generals good mood, a nearby scream is heard with agitation.
Suddenly a soldier arrives with an urgent expression on his face.
”G-general while I was checking the condition of our army, I noticed that the number of soldiers did not correspond. ”
”A-at first I just thought it was due to disorganization and communication problems for having our forces scattered around the forest. But after re-checking in detail it doesn seem to be a mistake!
The general after crossing glances with me asks the soldier.
”How much do you estimate the difference is?! ”
”H-huh about 30% of the forces could not be found… ”
”INVESTIGATE WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE MISSING SOLDIERS AND HOW DID WE NOT REALIZE THIS UNTIL NOW!! ”. The general yells furiously.
How is this situation possible…
Will the soldiers have been lost in the middle of the journey?
Have they been attacked by enemies?
An attack of this magnitude would not have gone unnoticed!
While the general was in thought.
The soldier who had just reported to the general collapses on the ground.
With no visible injuries, he just lies lifelessly on the ground.
The general widens his eyes in surprise.
Without giving him time to understand the turn of events, he begins to hear screams around him.
”General its raining arrows from the sky!! ”
”We also received reports that they are attacking us from the East! ”
Other soldiers arrive in a hurry at the place.
”General they are attacking us from the South!! ”
”From the West, they are attacking us!! ”
”From the North too! ”
The general cannot follow the situation that got out of control.
”I-its an ambush! ”
Meanwhile, the hero was looking at the situation with a look of deep contemplation.
Back to the royal palace.
”And this is how the great army of the alliance was exterminated in one night. ”
The looks of the prince and the other guests were of absolute surprise and disbelief.
”W-what do you mean hero? ”
Correct. The man who suddenly appeared was none other than Franz Alexander.
”As you say the army troops faced an ambush but considering the size and power of the troops they should be enough to win. ”
”Much less complete annihilation! ”
Seeing the faces of disbelief, Franz continues his explanation.
”It is due to a variety of factors ”
”In the first place, because we were in a forest, our troops were separated from each other, creating organization problems in the command table. ”
”Besides, added to the fact that we had gone deep into the middle of the continent, avoiding various fortresses, the enemy forces were able to surround us. ”
”If you add to that the fact that the enemy must be highly skilled in fighting in the forest considering that it is their territory… the enemys strength is not to be underestimated. ”
The faces of those present quickly turned pale at my comments.
”B-but in that place was not only the hero present but also the elites of the alliance countries! The holy knight! The master swordsman! The paladins of the church! The great archmage! ”
”Ah, those guys? ”
”Unfortunately, they died even before the big battle ”
The absurd face of those present reappears.
The same mistake that the general made is happening to them… they overlooked the critical factor here.
”If you remember my story, an officer collapsed on the floor out of nowhere ”
”Well, this didn just happen to him. ”
”A large number of soldiers died even before being hit by enemy arrows. ”
”I-it can be! This doesn make sense! Were they poisoned? How could something like that have happened to so many soldiers at once! ”
”Well thats because of the wine they drank previously, ” Franz said while nodding.
”What do you mean with- ”
At that moment the crown prince realizes.
How is it possible that he understands the whole situation so perfectly?
Whats more… wasn he the one who proposed this plan in the first place?
Seeing the crown prince put on a somber expression, I whisper.
”Haven figured it all out yet? ”
He looks at me with a surprised face and then anger.
”YOU! How dare you- ”
But he is unable to finish the sentence. Blood comes out of his mouth and nose.
”T-the wine… it can b-be! ” The prince murmurs agitated.
”It is the same method used on the other continent but with a stronger dose. ”
The prince with an incredulous face looks around. All the aristocrats lie lifeless on the ground…
Even members of the royal family are not spared. The King and Queen who were sitting on their thrones lie asleep. Your brothers and sisters on the ground…
All except for his sister the third princess.
With a feeling of betrayal, the prince falls to his knees.
Seeing his expression I can help but put on a look of surprise.
”Don tell me you didn expect a coup ”
Oh my god.
Don tell me you expected me, a kidnapped person from Earth to help you in your great plan to save humanity from the ”Demons ”.
In case no one has noticed, this fantasy world, although it has magic and divine powers from the intervention of the goddess is not that different from Earth.
That is to say, there are no beings like the demons of the typical tales of fantasy novels…
Imagine my surprise when I found out that the ”Demons ”, persecuted and hated for hundreds of years are simply…
HUMANS OF ANOTHER ETHNICITY.
YES. YOU ARE LISTENING WELL.
THE GREAT WAR TO GET RID OF EVIL…
IS JUST A WAR OF DISCRIMINATION!!!
And the kingdom of Herssian is one of the main promoters of the ”purification of humanity ”.
Call me crazy but Ive already read about this pattern in my life on Earth and it didn end well.
So even if with my strength I can win this war without much trouble…
The problems that would have to be faced after the war are unimaginable.
Slavery or annihilation for all the inhabitants of the other continent.
Im not a psychopath. So there is no way I would allow that!
And before you tell me anything about the deaths Ive done here…
Let me tell you that a hero is a war machine with a license to kill!
Kill innocent people who were only following orders from their relatives or people of higher rank?
All these people have been indoctrinated from birth to have a deep hatred for those different from them, if I left someone with power alive it could all start over in a couple of years.
Are the citizens of the empire going to be upset by what I just did?
Just some of them.
Although I didn mention it before, 30% of the missing forces are soldiers of this kingdom who committed treason by joining me in the coup.
While wealthy aristocrats throw an extravagant parties in the royal palace, the kingdoms citizens face harsh living conditions due to the mismanagement of public resources in continuing a pointless war…
So to achieve a truly happy ending I have no choice but to take drastic measures!
”You can rest in peace prince ”
”I swear on my name as a hero, that I will save humanity! ”
Yep. Save humanity from psychopaths like you. And unfortunately, there is a lot of work to be done.
