The demon king is the hero’s wife [Chapter 8]

Rapid approach to the Demon King

The next day…

“It has been reported that the Demon King Dragon is causing havoc. I will try to control it a bit.”

“The Demon King Dragon…?”

“It’s one of the seven Demon King Dragons; sometimes they enter a state of uncontrollable rage. Relax here, Sion. If you want to explore the castle, that’s fine. Just try to avoid the restricted areas, please.”

“…Don’t you want me to come with you?”

“Are you sure? The Demon King Dragon can be a challenge. Plus, I owe you my life, so your help would be appreciated.”

“We’ve saved each other.”

“Your help would be greatly appreciated. Would you assist me?”

“Yes.”

And so, Vila and I ventured out of the castle together.

“Invocation! ‘Demon Ride'” Vila chanted a spell, and a 5-meter-long structure appeared.

“What is this…?”

“It’s a magical transport device I usually use. It’s the first time I’ve taken someone else on it.”

It resembled a large palanquin.

“Climb on my back. Hold on tight so you don’t fall off.”

“Ah, okay.”

Following her instructions, I placed my hands on her waist.

“You i–idiot…! When I say hold on, I mean the handle over there…! Ugh!”

“Eh? Oh, understood…”

Curse it, I jumped the gun.

“Sorry…”

“Lately… It’s the first time a guy has touched me, so I was surprised. I’m still not used to this.” Vila looked flustered. With flushed cheeks and pursed lips, oh, she looked really cute!

“Ah…”

After saying that, Vila also blushed in embarrassment.

“My true personality slipped out, seriously…”

“Do you usually talk like this, Vila?”

“I-It’s not like that! I was just surprised, that’s all!”

“Is your true personality peeking out again?”

“Ah… Ugh…”

She becomes more charming with every moment… I couldn’t help but feel excited about the unknown side of the Demon Queen Vira…

We were flying through the sky in a magical vehicle shaped like a mikoshi.

“It shakes quite a bit.”

“Make sure to hold on tight.”

She had returned to her usual tone.

“…So, is your way of speaking as the Demon Queen just an act?”

“Ugh, drop that… seriously, how embarrassing.”

“Oh, I’m sorry.”

I smiled ironically.

“You’re so cute…”

“D-Don’t call me cu-cute! I’m the Demon King, you know?”

“No problem. Even if you’re an adorable Demon Queen.”

I responded as Vila blurted out.

“It’s probably more charming this way.”

“But, you know, as the Demon Queen, I have to maintain my dignity…”

“I understand, you’re right.”

“And anyway, how embarrassing!”

Vila blushed and squirmed in embarrassment.

“Wow, she’s really adorable!”

Honestly, I never would have imagined seeing this side of her.

And then, a giant silhouette appeared before us.

“Is that the Demon Dragon?”

I mentally prepared myself and saw a huge black dragon. Although it looked extremely powerful…

“In reality, it’s not that strong,” Vira murmured.

“But its appearance commands respect, right?”

“Really? It’s just a front. Well… yes. It looks like a dragon befitting a Demon King, that’s why it’s called a Demon Dragon.”

“His name seems quite random, doesn’t it?”

“That’s right.”

“So, could we easily control it if it goes out of control?”

“Well… Our army has lost a lot of power during the battle with the human army…”

“Oh…”

I was speechless.

I see, we, the hero group, along with the elite forces of the human army, took down many high-ranking demon commanders.

“There aren’t enough people capable of containing and controlling the damage even with a Demon Dragon…”

Vila sighed.

“Is that why you have come personally?”

“Yes. Although it is said to be weak, that means ‘for a dragon, it’s not that strong.’ Dragons themselves are a powerful race and cause damage around them. That’s why I came to control it quickly.”

“I understand. I will also cooperate.”

“Perfect. I will increase the speed of our magical vehicle. We will attack from behind, don’t fall off.”

“Understood.”

As we spoke, I summoned the hero’s sacred sword.

Now I could attack at any moment.

Our magical vehicle accelerated towards the Demon Dragon from behind.

“Take this…!”

I delivered a surprise blow from a blind angle…

The strike of the sacred sword hit directly on the back of the Demon Dragon, and the dragon screamed as it fell.

We landed in front of the fallen Demon Dragon on the ground.

Then…

“W-Wait, Demon King, please forgive me!”

The Demon Dragon instantly surrendered.

“…Huh? If you’re going to surrender so easily, why cause trouble in the first place?”

Vila, hands on her hips, said irritably.

“Ugh, I apologize for being a coward.”

“Exactly.”

“A coward, huh…”

I glanced at the dragon.

Something seemed off…
