Oukoku e Tsuzuku Michi Chapter 305
Albens – Malordol Mansion Ruins
I grab the black soot-stained stone pillar and climb over an obstacle laying on the ground.
Applying a little bit of my body weight is enough to make the pillar crumble.
「Are you alright?」
Celia’s head was in the perfect place for me to grab and avoid tumbling.
I made the top of her pretty silver head of hair black though. I’ll keep silent about it.
「This is terrible.」
The former mansion of the Malordol family…… or rather the ruins of what was believed to be the former mansion, is completely burned down.
Albens as a city was ravaged by the flames of war and widespread plundering, but the mansion is in an especially bad state.
It’s hard to recognize whether there was even a mansion here with the mountains of scattered rubble and small traces of the building’s ceiling and walls.
We also probably wouldn’t have realized this was the site of the mansion unless we asked the surviving citizens of the city.
「For a completely stone-crafted mansion to be burned like this…… my guess is that the fire started burning from the inside rather than the outside.」
「That might be the case.」
Prepared for defeat at the hands of an overwhelming opponent, that guy likely didn’t want to leave the enemy with anything and so he set everything on fire.
「That means we can’t bring anything back.」
「What a waste of a trip.」
Our allies are chasing the running Imperial army to no ends.
The path going south to the western plains is littered with the corpses of the Empire soldiers, and the hunt for survivors even continues in the towns and villages on the way.
The 105th division I should be leading is also naturally participating in the pursuit, except I have handed over command to Yakov and headed into Albens where the Empire made their stronghold. The pursuit is being done in squads so it should be fine.
If I’m criticized, I could always feign innocence by saying I came to Albens because I thought there were remnants there.
Celia also led a few soldiers for a while to conduct a search for the enemy general Zaphnes, however all kinds of soldiers from all different armies were competing against each other for the large bounty and made things get quite out of control, so she ended up returning to me.
The reason I came to Albens was because of Claudia.
She came to me only carrying clothes and items of monetary value so I figured I might find something belonging to her deceased husband that I could bring back to her.
「I think you’re worrying unnecessarily about that meatball. I think she isn’t even thinking about him.」
「Don’t say that. She’s got a few problems here and there, but that makes her cute in a way.」
Her obesity too changes into a kind of charm once it passes a certain point.
I actually enjoy seeing the round Claudia roll around.
「There’s not much meaning staying here any longer.」
I leave behind the mansion of ash and soot.
As I was about to leave, a cinder suddenly fell down.
「Oh, it collapsed.」
I turn my eye to it and see that the cinder used to be a drawer of sorts.
The drawer was filled with burnt clothes and accessories, and there was one article among them which caught my attention.
「A pendant, huh. It’s not damaged much. I guess I’ll take it back.」
I slip the pendant into a pocket.
「Perhaps Marquess Malordol wanted to deliver it to that woman.」
Celia suggests such a fairy tale. How cute, let me pat her head.
「Haha, you’re still a child for believing in ghosts, Celia. Cutie.」
「No, ghosts certainly exist. Without a doubt. There’s one who eats pumpkin.」
If the ghost of Marquess Malordol exists then I should report to him about his wife.
「The child Claudia gave birth to his actually my child. You don’t have to worry though, I’ll take responsibility for them and look after them properly. That’s why you can rest in peace and travel to the realm of the dead.」
Right when I finish speaking, a fragment from the traces of the ceiling fall down on my head.
When I brush it off, the wall immediately collapses toward me.
「That was close, that was close.」
I carry Celia and swiftly step away.
And then, as if deflecting off the collapsed wall, the sword decorating the surface flew at me with the force of a thrust.
I hit the flat part of the sword with the back of my hand and knock it away.
Celia is clinging to my hips quivering like a leaf.
「Haha, Marquess Malordol might be giving us his final greetings just like you said. With that, he can go to the realm of the dead with peace of mind.」
「That’s definitely not it! He was fully intent on taking you down with him! He was cursing you for sure!!」
I lift up the fussing Celia.
「If this much is breaking, the whole place may come crashing down. Let’s get out of here quickly.」
「Y-you’re right. Let’s go!」
However, Marquess Malordol had another present prepared for us.
「D-did you see that just now!?」
「Y-you can’t stay here! The last man also left, so escape quickly……」
There was stirring in the rubble and then two human figures crawled out.
They were both black from being covered in ash, though the military uniforms on their bodies are familiar.
「The Imperial army――!」
I rush forward quicker than Celia could draw her sword.
「You’re still here? Now that it’s come to this-!」
I cut the sword held by the knight-looking female in two with my Dual Crater.
The woman falls on her ass after dropping her half-broken sword.
「Oh, flames of hell! Reduce my threat to ashes――!」
The other woman is apparently a magic user.
I see an ember form in the palm of her hand and then start swirling around, growing into a larger whirlpool of fire.
Compared to all the magic users I’ve seen, that’s nowhere near the power they have. In particular, Alice’s flames are several times hotter and larger.
I wait until the fire has been sufficiently attracted to me before swinging down my Dual Crater.
The flames get sliced by my blade and they fizzle out as if dissolving into the air.
「You’re kidding…… he cut magic?」
The female magic user slumps to her knees in disbelief.
「So…… this is the end.」
「At the very least, let us die together.」
The two girls lock hands with resigned expressions on their drooping faces.
Don’t be stupid. I’m not going to kill women.
I smile and approach the two of them as Celia glares sulkingly.
「Aaaaaaah――!! I’m dyinggg――!!」
「What is this, so thick! It’s pushing up my insides! Hiiiih――!!」
I lay the female knight on the female magic user and alternate fucking them from behind.
「You have such a lively and tightly squeezing pussy.」
The female knight’s weak point is the area in her folds part way into her vagina. When I rub her there, her body bends and she moans.
「I-it’s not fair when you focus so much on my weak spot! Something really pleasurable is coming again!」
Before the female knight completes her orgasm, I pull out and shove my dick into the female magic user’s hole below.
「Your insides are soft. I can go all the way inside.」
She has the same build as the female knight, but her ass is bigger and fleshier, so it makes a nice slapping sound whenever I slam my hips into her. Her hole feels deep and isn’t too tight, rather my member is gently enveloped by her folds.
Her weak point is not a specific area.
She prefers a certain movement. One where I barely pull all the way out and then slowly reinsert my penis all the way until it softly pushes against the very back.
When I repeat this motion several times, the magic user grabs the back of the female knight lying on top of her and moans in agony.
「Aaahn! How did my weak point get found…… I didn’t even say a single word about it!」
Repeating the sequence a couple more times, the female magic user starts to flail her arms and legs.
She is nearing her climax too.
The final consent should be easy to get after coming this far.
When I take myself away from them, the two of them look at me with confused faces.
「Eh…… you’re stopping? You’re not going to kill us after violating us?」
「Or are you going to call your companions to rape us before killing us?」
Fear starts mixing into their complexion.
「What meaningless things are you saying? Celia, could you bring me two pairs of women’s clothing?」
As Celia leaves with puffed cheeks, the two girls look even more puzzled.
「You can’t run away looking like that. If you throw away your weapons and wear plain clothes, it’ll be harder for you to be found.」
Fortunately the girls don’t have dark skin like Sekrit, which is uncommon for the people of the Federation, so they shouldn’t stand out.
「I’ll let you return to your country alive, so let me pump your womb with my seed.」
I tell them the offer as I roll the female knight on her back.
「……it can’t be helped if this is to survive. But make sure it’s as pleasurable as possible.」
「So you’re going to cum inside…… aah, what will I do if I get pregnant?」
I once again press down on the girls. The earlier sex was enough to bring them to their limits and I’m also close to bursting as well.
「I’m gonna cum now. Take my seed back with you to the Empire.」
「Uuuー this is in exchange for life. I have to…… I have to endureeeeee!!」
The female knight grabs my face, wraps her arms around my shoulder and orgasms as she kisses me passionately.
To respond to her actions, my dick starts to throb and spew the rich baby juice deep inside her.
「It’s coming out……I’ll get pregnant…… I’m going to get pregnant……」
「I’ll give you lots to get pregnant.」
After 30 seconds, I pull out from the female knight and turn to the female magic user.
Naturally, my ejaculation hasn’t finished and fluid keeps getting pumped out of my tool with every pulse.
「You’re going to put it in me while it’s still cumming? That’s just like how livestock mate…… I’m……」
I plunge my still-throbbing dick inside her.
「Noooo! I don’t want to be pregnantー It’s scaryy! But your huge dick feels so goodーー!」
When I penetrate her, I hear her voice her rejection, and also feel her arms and legs wrap around my back.
「So you’re scared? It looks like your body wants to get pregnant though.」
I’ve only inserted into her, yet the magic user’s waist is grinding against me.
Of course my seed is still being released and her insides are still soft, maybe even softer than before.
Her body wants to be impregnated by me.
「This is all your fault…… being so big…… not to mention how hard and dark it is, it leaves me no choice but to get pregnant!」
Her dirty words arouse me further and compel me to use my hips.
She sticks her tongue out of her mouth and her nails dig into my back as she orgasms.
I completely mount her and pour my load in her.
When our heated mating was over and I separate from them, the two of them look at the sky while holding each other’s hands.
The drool trickling from their lips and the labored heaving of their chests tell me they were satisfied.
「We got impregnated, didn’t we. With so much cum, we’re definitely going to get pregnant.」
「Yeah. We lost the fight and it’ll be tough from here on out, but we’ll live strong together. We’ll surely be fine if we stay together.」
The two whisper to each other while their hands remain glued.
This might be a good chance to make the two of them my women.
「Maybe the two of you would like to belong to me?」
The result was a cruel one.
「I have a father and mother growing old in the Empire.」
「I have my beloved children waiting for me in the country.」
No good, huh?
Celia came back right on time with the clothes.
They are perfectly dingy and used clothes that don’t stand out. Whatever Celia does, she does it well.
「If the two of you decide to return to the Empire, wait until after two weeks to do so. Your General has a huge bounty on his head. It’s not a good idea to head south right now.」
The girls look at each other.
「His Excellency Zaphnes?」
「South? Aah, I see.」
「You two, do you know something!?」
Celia pops her head out from my side as I’m dozing off.
I don’t know if it’s because I’ve emptied my balls, I’m just not in the mood to think about that enemy general.
「Er, His Excellency fled from Albens on ship right before the collapse of the war front.」
「He’s on a small boat he seized from the Federation previously.」
Celia turns to me, only to pout again when she sees how content I look. It feels like she’s been sulking all day.
「I see, he will be chased if he heads south. That’s why he disguised himself using a Federation ship and set out to sea.」
The girls shake their heads.
「No, he headed east.」
「He’s apparently not going back to the Empire.」
Hooh, even though he disguised himself, it takes some guts to invade into the enemy depths.
The investigation squad surely won’t check the east. He has a chance to escape successfully.
「I see. But how do you girls know so much? And you’re talking about so easily. Is this a ruse?
Celia looks at them doubtfully.
The two girls go silent for a brief moment, then replies with a hateful look.
「We were His Excellency’s partners at night so that’s how we know.」
「He left us in the city and ran away…… we felt like there was no need to continue doing our duty.」
So this Zaphnes guy abandoned them here, took his subordinates and other girls with him and escaped on boat with them.
Left helpless in the middle of the enemy, the two of them just hid here.
「What a horrible man. If I find him, I’ll take it out on him.」
I hug the two of them close and give them each a kiss.
I say farewell to the two girls and I’m left with only Celia again.
「The search in Albens is complete. There were no remnants of the enemy.」
「We found some though.」
Women aren’t enemies. Thus they don’t count as remnants.
「I was also able to find something to bring back to Claudia from her house. Her husband can finally rest in peace.」
「Definitely not…… I’m more worried about him haunting you.」
Celia keeps looking behind her, scared of something.
「We got information on the enemy general too. Let’s report this to headquarters.」
「Yeah. We can’t chase after him if he’s escaping on boat.」
A few days has passed since the battle ended. Since he’s using a ship, we might not catch up regardless.
「This is where our pursuit comes to an end too.」
「You just fucked a few girls and impregnated them though.」
Celia’s been kind of toxic for the past while now. I’ll stretch her cheeks out and extract that poison out.
「Waah! Don’t pull them like that! Isn’t what I said just the truth!?」
My rubbing transitions from her cheeks to her breasts, then I successfully managed to expel the venom from her crotch.
In White City – Palace.
「Everybody, here comes His Majesty Jutland II. Lower your heads.」
At the demand of the man resembling the prime minister, everyone present bows.
It’s the Emperor of the Olga Federation, Jutland II. I believe I’ve met him once a long time ago, but besides being an old man, I don’t remember much of him.
I’m not this elder’s subordinate, though there is no reason for me to oppose him, so I do the same as all the others.
In the palace incomparably larger than the one in Goldonia and untouched by the flames of war, countless nobles, knights, and soldiers enough to fill the entire area kneel down before one man.
After annihilating the enemy’s main force, our allies carried out a thorough pursuit until the midway point of the western plains.
The Imperial army scattered after taking devastating casualties and losing the ability to function as an army, plus mostly all the remnants within the territory have been destroyed, so victory was declared.
The victory ceremony is apparently going to start now.
With an emphasis on following rules, the way the Federation lines up is proper as well.
In the front, you have the ministers and commanding general-class soldiers bending their waist and heads deeply.
Stessel is part of that group.
Slightly behind them are soldiers who are kneeling in addition to hanging their heads.
In terms of class, you have corps commanders and high tier commander-class soldiers. Ivanna and I fall under this category.
Further back you have knights and lower tier commander-class soldiers lining up all the way from the palace to the border of the plaza right in front of the palace.
Yakov, Celia and the others should be there. I wanted to take Celia with me, but that wasn’t allowed.
I wanted to rub her cute ass, since I’m sure there would just be a whole lot of boring talking.
Ivanna is beside me.
Normally she would be further forward due to her standing, so I don’t know why she’s here.
When I lightly put my hand against her butt, she stares at me with murderous intent.
「His Majesty is pleased with your efforts to bring victory.」
The speech is starting. I thought the Emperor would be the one who gives us words of gratitude, but it’s the prime minister who is talking non-stop and the Emperor purely nodding. Is this how the Federation does things?
「For driving the savage Garland Empire off――」
It’s still going on…… I wonder if anybody will notice a single person out of tens of thousands slipping away.
No, I can’t. Everyone is listening while not moving a muscle. If I move at all, I’ll become the center of attention.
「However the national crisis is not over yet. In order to get through the days of hardship――」
I was about to yawn when Ivanna glares at me. Come on, spare me.
「The fight at this time is surely one which has the nation’s fate at stake――」
If I look carefully at Ivanna who is on one knee, I can see her breasts.
Peeking a little further and I might be able to see those pink nipples. Ooh, there they are!
「Thus, those who have achieved distinguished merits will be graciously and personally extolled for their loyalty by His Majesty――」
Ivanna found out what I was doing.
She hurriedly hides her chest, checks my crotch and then glares at me with blood lust-filled eyes.
I think it can’t be helped that I got hard from seeing her pink nipples.
「The one with the highest achievement is one who was appointed to be the general commander of defense in the most difficult of battle states and eliminated the enemies. Martin Stessel――――」
While Ivanna is glaring, another female commander on my other side reacts.
She’s a mature lady probably close to her 40’s already, but that just means she has more experience with men.
When she sees my erect dick, her hand touches her mouth and her cheeks turn red.
Prime Minister what’s-his-name is calling people up one after the other, but I don’t have time for that.
I flex my abs to make my dick twitch and entice the mature beauty beside me.
She’s openly looking at me now. So I might be able to sleep with her after the ceremony is over.
「The enemy fleet has continued to threaten us arrogantly on the North Teries river. The one who burned down and sunk the flagship of that fleet along with its cruel enemy commanders to the bottom of the river, the visiting general from Goldonia, Lord Aegir Hardlett, please step forward!」
I look around when my name is called.
「Idiot, stand! His Majesty is calling for you!」
I stand up in a hurry as Ivanna tells me.
A man in the front row falls flat on his ass.
Since I stood so suddenly, my erect dick is right in front of his face.
「Lord Hardlett. Come before His Majesty.」
The slightly doubtful prime minister urges me.
I’m completely hard though. If I walk up now, they’ll think I’m a pervert.
I can already hear the people around me whispering things like “that guy’s totally hard”, “aah he’s erect”, and “isn’t he too big?”. Luckily there is still some distance between me and the throne, making it harder for it to be seen.
I can sense Celia writhing behind me.
「Lord Hardlett, take this path.」
Ivanna clings to me, pretending to guide me, while reaching her hand into my pants and adjusting the position of my dick. At least it won’t stand out for now.
「Hurry up and go, stupid.」
「Thanks. I’ll definitely pay you back.」
I’d like to use my dick to thank her if possible.
After walking a considerable distance, I arrive in front of the Emperor.
Looking at him up close, I can confirm he is unmistakably an old man.
He has white hair and beard, wrinkled face and hands, and his slightly open caved-in eyes look at me.
He is dressed in clothes dripping in luxury, wearing a crown decorated with a giant jewel I’ve never seen before, and he has people nearby waiting to serve him…… if he wasn’t wearing those fancy garments and decorations, I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between him and an old man playing absentmindedly with kids in the town.
「So this is Hardlett?」
He didn’t speak loudly, nor did he ask the question in a hard to hear volume.
「It is as you say.」
This feels so strange.
Rather than feeling intimidated by the Emperor, the overwhelming number of eyes focused on me is annoying.
On top of that, the nobles of the Federation are heavily concerned with manners and etiquette.
If I do something ridiculous while everyone is watching, Celia might just faint.
「So you came from Goldonia. A just cause. ……prime minister.」
After that, he reclines back into his throne.
He’s going to leave the rest to the prime minister.
He doesn’t seem to have any particular interest in me. Rather, he doesn’t seem to have any interest in anybody in this place.
Elders don’t really have much interest in a lot of things though.
The prime minister stands in front of me in his place.
「You are not one of the nobles who swore allegiance to His Majesty the Emperor, but your heroic deeds are certain. Merit calls for reward, sins call for punishment – that is the logic in this country of ours, which is why I will grant you a reward in His Majesty the Emperor’s name.」
Oh, so we’re talking rewards now. I wonder what he will give me.
「Normally, your achievements are deserving of a peerage, however that can’t be granted when you have sworn loyalty to the king of another nation. Therefore, I will bring you money and other articles of value.」
After saying that, the prime minister takes out a piece of paper as if remembering something.
Suddenly, I hear a soft clearing of the throat and Stessel averts his eyes.
「He desires women as a reward…… how vulgar……」
The prime minister stares at me with contempt. What did I do?
Seeing that, the Emperor speaks up again.
「Prime minister, is there something wrong?」
「N-no! It is nothing Your Majesty needs to hear! It will dirty your eyes!」
The prime minister quickly puts the paper away.
Suddenly, I feel a weird pressure that makes me shiver from the Emperor who I thought was just an old man.
It was a strange feeling I’ve never felt before.
「Prime minister, what is it?」
The emperor says the same thing before the prime minister hands the paper over with a pale face.
The ministers around him become unsettled, which then transfers to the nobles like radio waves.
I can sense Celia collapse to the ground.
「Women, is it?」
The emperor doesn’t seem angry or disdainful, nor does he show a smile when he hands the paper back to the prime minister.
「So you want women?」
The emperor once again asks, this time directly at me.
「That is so.」
When I give the same answer as earlier, the emperor nods and takes his eyes away from me.
「Prime minister, do the measurements.」
The prime minister doesn’t say anything else and bows his head deeply.
I return to my original position and go back to ignoring the endless ceremony.
Ivanna wanted to ask what happened during that weird moment, but she decided that any private whispering would be disrespectful. She keeps glancing over at me.
I sense Celia revive as well. Is this going to end soon?
The ceremony was over after continuing for the entire day and I was finally released from the kneeling posture.
「Fuu, I’m so tired. Celia, since we’re in the White City, might as well go for a drink or two……」
「What did you say to His Majesty the Emperor?」
「Aegir-sama, what did you do!?」
Ivanna and Celia pressure me with questions at the same time.
It isn’t anything to hide, but when I tell them, Celia hangs her head and Ivanna gets angry.
「Y-you requested His Majesty the sacred Emperor for women!? How stupid and how perverted must you be!!?」
「At least ask for something more useful!」
「No, I actually wasn’t the one who said that to him directly.」
It was Stessel who then interjected with a smile.
「I was the one who told him in advance. No big deal, His Majesty didn’t seem to mind. The prime minister might have looked down on you, but it isn’t something which will cause future problems. For someone like you will be leaving quite soon, this shouldn’t affect you in the slightest.」
Ivanna hastily drops to her knees when Stessel appears.
「Hey now, you were kneeling the whole time during the ceremony. If you don’t stop now, your joints will break.」
Stessel stands Ivanna back up and speaks to me.
「I also reported your conspicuous service to the Goldonian King with a little embellishment. You did well.」
What does he mean by embellishment?
As it is, lots of strange rumors about me always end up spreading every time I go out to battle.
「Your reward money has already been prepared by a government official. I will have it loaded with you when you return home so when you decide on a date, let me know.」
My reward should be women though.
「Come on now, I’m not someone who makes a living off selling women into prostitution to only reward your accomplishments with women. Moreover, I can’t let the noble of another nation go home after just sleeping with some girls, that would completely ruin the face of the Federation. I’ll at least prepare you with the letter of thanks from the Emperor and a sum of gold. Is there anything else you want?」
Fumu, let me think.
If I pretend to be Leopolt, then I would probably want some kind of new weapon and a small young girl.
Requesting for more girls here would make me look like a deviant.
「Could I request a few new model cannons with a long shooting range?」
Stessel makes a troubled face at my proposal.
「Mmm, that won’t be possible. The newest cannons are expensive, not to mention they contain many state secrets not meant to be shared. I can’t decide on my own to hand them to you, and I doubt the higher-ups will allow it even if I asked.」
No good, huh? Then what about that?
「Then can I have a few of those chariots?」
「Chariots? Fumu, that isn’t particularly top secret, since it’s been used several hundreds of years ago. Why would you want something so unwieldy?」
「My personal army revolves around cavalry so it would be helpful if I had a weapon that can follow them around.」
That is just pretense, I actually just enjoyed riding it and going wild.
I want to try doing it again in the next fight.
「I see, well giving up a few chariots won’t be a big deal. I will prepare them for you.」
Stessel then proceeds to extend his hand.
What does that mean? Does he want me to give him something in return? I’m not handing my women to anyone.
「Lord Hardlett, you’ve been a great help to me. There’s no point thinking of what could have happened, but if you weren’t there, I’m not sure I could enjoy the taste of the victory drink. You were a little off from the type I wanted…… no, you were way off, but you’re a person who should be counted among the heroes.」
Stessel and I exchange a firm handshake.
Ivanna and Celia relax as they watch.
After the handshake, Stessel grabs me for a hug.
I’m not into other men no matter how handsome he may be.
Stessel whispers softly enough so that Celia and Ivanna couldn’t hear.
「Tonight’s going to be a good night, I’m sure. After all, His Majesty personally ordered women to be given to you. The prime minister and the government officials will be working at full capacity. Unbelievable beauties will be gathered just for you.」
Hey, don’t let my imagination start running wild.
My dick is bulging with your arm still around me.
Celia and Ivanna are speechless. They are totally misunderstanding.
