ng at me, but that was nothing to worry about because to some extent, there were people like that everywhere.
“I heard that you were a young lady, so I had someone prepare this for you, but unfortunately, I don’t know if it would be to your liking.”
The king himself ate first and offered me some sweets, while Pochi was also served a whole live cow.
There was a possibility that he was just a pervert with a good face like that old bishop, but if I doubted him further, there would be no point in visiting, so I sipped my tea and urged him to talk to me.
“By the way, [Nym]…could you be related to ‘Arceides’?”
“…I had given up that name.”
My second name, which I used as my family name since I had given up the family name, was Nym, which I believe means “demon” or “fairy,” and was used as a derogatory term in the Arceides family for a long time.
Dirk had once proudly told me that it would become my family name.
It was a word that I certainly had never heard elsewhere, but I was no longer related to the Arceides family and had no regrets, so I didn’t want to hear anything about it now.
I’m sorry I said something strange.”
The king, perhaps noticing my subtle scowl, or perhaps remembering that Caenista was a human race supremacist, bowed his head in a humble manner.
“Your Majesty! There is no need to bow to such an unknown little girl! I do not recognize that person as the Successor!”
The uncle who had been staring at me earlier suddenly shouted.
“Quiet, Barbas! I’m sorry, my guest.
I know you have many questions, but could you please listen to this old man first?”
It would appear that the reason he called me here was not simply to see me, the rumored Demon Lord, but for some other purpose as well.
A little over a month had passed since [Abominable Child] Carol Nym Arceides, a subhuman daughter born to a noble family, went missing during the destruction of the royal castle.
As for the events that occurred during that time, first, a member of the Arceides family was found guilty of a crime.
The head of the family, who had left the line, took responsibility and retired, and Dirk, who had been the temporary head of the family, officially became the new head of the family.
Then, Alice Lannon, a commoner, was given the rank of baronet, albeit for one generation only, for her services in the battle against the Daemons, which started the whole affair, and was even adopted by a Viscount Family on the recommendation of several noblemen.
The Viscountess of Yogle, who lost her estate and son in the war with Daemons several decades ago, was now an aristocrat in name only and was living on an aristocrat’s pension.
She adopted Alice making her now a full-fledged member of the aristocracy and Alice had now become Alice Lannon Yogle.
It was then that a dark shadow began to shroud the kingdom of Caenista.
