Little Demon´s King survival strategy
Despite the blatant insult, I did not raise an eyebrow.
Because I’d heard it too often.
“Why did the devil choose a dirty hybrid like you as the demon king?”
‘I guess he liked me better.
Why? Why do you have to bring that up again?’
Although I wanted to answer like that, I just dressed up with a big smile.
They won’t be wary of me if I look as harmless and thoughtless as possible.
The Demon King, but a puppet swayed by high-ranking demons – that was my situation right now.
The demons looked down at me with snake-like eyes.
“It’s all thanks to us that you are still alive as a Demon King.
Don’t forget that.”
“Yes, I’ll remember!”
I nodded brightly, like a puppy following its owner.
Only then did they leave the room with a satisfied face.
The sound of the door being locked from the outside echoed loudly.
At the same time, I wiped the smile from my face and stared at the closed door.
“Ha, you’re really talking……”
Just wake me up as the Demon King, then I’ll sew their mouths right away!
Anyway, to understand why I had become a miserable person to be abused by such mustached grandfathers, I first needed to know about the fantasy novel I had read in my previous life.
Although people cursed it as general garbage, it was still my favorite novel.
Well, the content was rather typical.
It was a rather obvious story of a genius prince with a tragic past, who became happy after killing the demon king who had plunged the world into chaos.
However, in a world where everyone was happy, there was one person who felt horrible.
And that was Tatiana.
She was the demon king chosen by the devil and the final boss of the novel, who was decided to be overthrown by the male protagonist.
‘By the way, I’m that Tatiana, so does this make sense?!’
I couldn’t resist the rising anger and seethed.
……Anyway, back to the original story.
Tatiana’s setting in the original was roughly as follows.
Tatiana was the only recognized person in the original work to be of mixed race between human and demon.
On top of that, she was an orphan, who didn’t even know who her parents were, and her appearance was closer to that of a human than a demon.
Thus, she stayed in the slave market for three years while being treated as trash by the surrounding demons.
It had been three years – I was four years old now – so it was almost like being persecuted for over half my life!!
Hah, let me wipe my tears first.
I was saddened by that alone, but an incident that made my hard life even more messed up happened.
That was the oracle of the devil.
The contents of the oracle were simple.
The devil who had been silent the whole time had chosen a new demon king.
But the problem was, the new demon king was….
‘It was me.’
The demons, who heard the oracle, turned their eyes, and searched for the new demon king, and finally found me.
“A mixed blood of humans and demons?”
As if looking at filth, the demons frowned their foreheads and glared at me.
“It’s terrifying that even such a filthy mongrel exists, let alone that she’s the Demon King!”
But I was depressed.
No, would I have wanted to be reincarnated as Tatiana, who was promised a crazy life?
The demon who had been staring at me for a while smiled sinisterly.
“Well, it’ll be useful in many ways.
Drag her away.”
Being dragged like a dog by the hands of the demons like that, I made a cynical judgment that was not like a three-year-old.
‘Yeah, my life seems to be completely ruined.’
A year passed like that.
I turned four years old and in the meantime my life had steadily flowed according to the original story.
I became a puppet of high-ranking demons, some of them extorted my power and pretended to be the demon king.
Thus, what was known to the public was the ‘Five Demon Kings.’
I think I heard rumors that the five kings invaded the land of humans, but my life was so hard that I couldn’t pay attention to it properly.
‘Even in the original story, the point at which I awaken as a Demon King is just before the novel ends…….
The male protagonist became a righteous warrior and invaded the Demon Castle, and rescued Tatiana from being exploited by high-ranking demons.
Sadly, it was too late then.
Tatiana, who could not endure the long-term abuse and fell into sorrow and despair, was awakened as the Demon King.
Thus, the male protagonist defeated Tatiana after a long struggle and finally prevented the
