n way, so he kept a small conversation going on to avoid awkwardness as they descended along the long stairs.

“I was amazed at how resolute you had been.
It must be the first time human could actually see so many demons like this.”

“No, I’m actually trembling right now.”

Julia then looked down at her hand, which was placed on top of Berith’s.
Her small hand was trembling, which ultimately made the white and pretty gloves of Revenna, become rather insignificant at best.
There was no way Berith, who was already in direct contact with her, couldn’t feel it at all.

However, while pretending not to notice it, he straight away continued along with an even deeper smile.

“Even this is simply amazing.
Is it because human is actually a Princess?”

“I’m flattered…”

The moment he put the word Princess in his mouth, Julia instantly felt awkward as if she was currently donning the wrong clothes.
Although she was also a Princess, she had never been treated properly like one back in the human world since she was only a child from the Emperor’s own affair.

The ‘Princess’ whom Berith was speaking of had most probably been Estelle Vestra, the most noble and beautiful sister in the whole world.

Julia’s eyelids sank helplessly and right at that moment, Berith eventually wrapped himself around her slender waist before pressing it against him.
Berith then whispered softly to her while lifting his gaze so that she wouldn’t think of anything else.

“You look uncomfortable.
Is there any problem?”

“No, it’s just a little bit awkward for me to receive such compliments…”

“I think Ingrem V’s education was quite strict then.
I’ve heard that humans sometimes raise their children as if they were to be dropped from a cliff.”

Ingrem V, it was a name which she never thought that she would hear again here in the Demon King’s Castle.

The demons had looked down on humans like worms.
Compared to themselves, humans’ physical abilities were infinitely lagged behind and they possessed no special abilities either.
It had already been a universal thought that humans were merely a race that was known to run wild without knowing their place by believing themselves in only one thing.

So, the demons would refer to humans in a rough manner regardless of their status, but Berith was aware of the exact name of Ingrem V, the Emperor of Vestra himself.

Noticing her query, he proceeded to add more strength, albeit gently, to his hand that was still wrapped around Julia’s waist.

“How is he?”


When she was asked about their father-and-daughter relationship, she became confused as to what to answer him with.
Julia then took a deep breath while still looking at Berith’s gentle gaze.

In the character window that popped out before, it was stated that he had been the demon in charge of ‘alchemy and knowledge’.
She thought that perhaps Berith had simply been curious about the way of life that was experienced by human beings, a race completely different from his own.

‘I wish I had turned on the sight function then.’

On the way to the central hall, she had already turned off the window with the feeling of not seeing Agares’s and Lerazier’s windows would be much better as she kept feeling uncomfortable.
She was now regretting it all, but it had been utterly unavoidable.

Eventually, she chose an answer that could be easily looked over.
