“…Mm, the smell of sweat…”
Not being able to keep one’s body clean was part and parcel of the worker’s life for Arche. This was true for all workers, adventurers, travellers, and anyone who spent time moving around outside. Even if they got dirty, the appropriate response would be “So what?”
However, she still felt deeply ashamed at being told this by a girl who was younger and more beautiful than her.
The girl’s face left Arche’s neck. A feeling of revulsion swept up over Arche as she looked into those crimson eyes. Within those eyes burned a lust for the female body, stained with the same carnal desire that men possessed for women.
“When we reach home, shall we shower first of all?”
Arche wanted to respond, but instead all she felt was surprise – surprise at the fact that her body had been immobilized. It was as though those crimson pupils had stolen away her soul. And at last, Arche realised the true identity of the girl.
Not a human――but a vampire.
“After that…” the girl started, before drawing her face towards Arche’s, and slipping her tongue past her lips to lightly lick at Arche’s cheeks. “…Salty.”
The girl laughed in satisfaction, and Arche’s heart creaked with despair.
The girl simply laughed harder.
Her lips split apart to her ears. The red of her irises spread to engulf their respective eyeballs.
With a cracking sound, she opened her mouth. What had once been neat, pearly white teeth were now things that made people think of medical syringes, in multiple rows like those of a shark. That pink and obscene oral opening shone with a slimy light, and transparent drool spilled from its corners.
A terror from the depths of Arche’s heart, rose to envelop her completely.
“AHAHAHAHAHA. THAAAAT’S RIIIIGGGGHTTT. I’M GOING TO MEEEESSSS UP YOUR HEEEAD WITH SOOOO MUCH PLEASURE YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO THIIIIINK STRAIIIIGHT. JUST HOOOOOOW LONG WILL IT TAKKKKE UNTIL YOU BEGGGG FOR IT YOUUUURSELLLFFFF, I WONDERRRRR!”
Arche’s mind lost hold on consciousness in the face of the laughing monster that reeked of blood.
The last thing that went through her mind was the faces of her two sisters waiting for her.
“HMMMMMM? FAINTED ALLLLREAAAADYYYYY? WELLLLLLLL THEEEEEN, WHEN YOU WAKE UP WE’LLL HAVEEE SOMEEE
“Now then, how is that woman? I did promise to hurt her as little as possible after all.”
“That woman… You mean Arche-chan, yes? Right now I’m in the middle of giving her a tail.”
“Tail…? Did you turn her into a lycanthrope or the like?”
Did there exist some method to turn people into the beastmen, lycanthropes? Wondering this, Ainz had asked Shalltear about it.
Ainz immediately cut off Shalltear’s reply.
“However, Ainz-sama. Please allow me to ask this much.”
“What is it?”
Although Ainz was getting a terribly bad feeling about this, it would not do to refuse her. Listening to one’s subordinates was the duty of a good ruler.
“You ordered us to hurt her as little as possible. However, …just taking her virginity would be fine, yes?”
I’m not even making this up.
Ainz yelled the name of his old comrade. Hearing the name of her creator being shouted had sent Shalltear into a fluster. Ainz’ agitation immediately settled, and he returned to his calm state.
“…My apologies. I got a little excited. …Let’s see, I did hand her over to you, so that was my mistake… Well, hm, I think you had better not.”
“Then would it be all right if that girl herself begged for me to take it? Or will you be taking it instead, Ainz-sama?”
Various thoughts such as ‘Like I fucking know!’ or ‘It’s her fault for intruding on Nazarick!’ appeared in Ainz’ mind, but in the end, Ainz convinced himself that as long as both parties consented, there was no problem.
“…If you haven’t used magic or threatened her into it, and she then tells you that she wants you to take it… I suppose it’s fine?”
“Understood. Well then, in order for her to say so, I shall slowly enjoy myself.”
“I see. …If you can enjoy yourself, then that’s good.”
