The demon king is the hero’s wife [Chapter 16]

What was sealed in the temple

“Temple…?”

“Yes, it’s a place where the demon king from the other world is worshiped…”

Vila’s expression was stern.

The reason was evident.

The temple’s door was shattered.

Had someone invaded the place?

“Is there something inside the temple?”

“Anyway, let’s check the interior.”

With that, Vila started running.

I hurried to follow her.

“Wait, what if there are intruders waiting to ambush us?”

“We must ensure that everything is under control…”

Ignoring my words, Vila accelerated even further.

She must be very concerned about something inside.

I followed her through the temple and entered a room.

“What is this…?”

A kind of black mist floated around.

“It seems someone has released it…”

Vila frowned bitterly.

“Could it be… a curse…?”

The “spell” used by sorcerers and others is originated from the energy of the “curse,” a form of resentment.

It appears that this black mist seemed to be a highly concentrated curse.

Moreover, it doesn’t seem to be the type that occurs naturally.

The black mist seeped from a box in a corner of the room.

“Is this some kind of curse…?”

“That’s right.”

Vila nodded.

Using the curse as a large-scale weapon would contaminate the entire land. It would turn the land into an uninhabitable place for generations… Did you intend to use something like this as a weapon?”

My voice trembled involuntarily.

A curse weapon…

There was a war in the human world in the past where this was used.

However, the effects on future generations were so significant that many lands became uninhabitable for hundreds of years, in some cases even thousands of years, leading to a treaty that permanently banned its use worldwide.

Since then, curse weapons have not appeared in human world wars.

And so far, a curse weapon had not been used in the war against the demonic race.

Therefore, it was truly shocking.

The fact that the demon king’s realm secretly had such a curse weapon.

“We did not intend to use it. We are aware that curse weapons are prohibited in the human world, and in the war between demons, their use has also long been banned.”

“Then why is it here?”

“The curse here is much more powerful than usual. It cannot be purified. That’s why the only option was to seal it. I have no intention of using it. Rather, to prevent its misuse… I had carefully sealed it. I had implemented multiple layers of security… all of which were breached, and the curse weapon being released was a shock to me as well.”

“Vila…”

Indeed, what she said made sense.

Was I reckless to judge based solely on the situation?

But…

There is also the possibility that she is lying.

No, I must not think that way.

I want to believe in Vila.

My thought was hasty.

I no longer want to be betrayed for believing.

At that moment, the faces of my old comrades who once tried to burn me alive while laughing came to mind.
