That was true.
Normal clothes do not tear apart to this extent if a child holds onto them.

But why did Nora’s maid uniform look like this?

‘Since Countess Ghiberti became the general manager, the quality of the clothes provided has deteriorated considerably…’

Subsidiary materials such as buttons were replaced with cheap ones, and there were many cases where buttons were missing altogether.

Not only did the fabric tear easily, but after one or two washes, the fabric shrank into a mess.

However, they couldn’t easily talk to the countess about the clothes, because…

‘You’re like mealworms that can’t even save a single piece of clothing, so you’re asking me to pay for it?!’

It was because they were afraid of the Countess’s scolding.

Perhaps there are no servants left in the duke’s townhouse who were not afraid of the countess.

‘Why are you closing the door audibly? Are you rebelling against me now?!’

Catching faults over trivial matters, gathering subordinates and yelling at them.

‘Just feed that girl a meal, and everyone will give her a hard time!’

It’s not uncommon to skip meals when you’re in a bad mood.

Why are you talking back?!’


There were even cases where employees were slapped on the cheek.


‘……There’s no need to be mean to a young lady like that.’

Nora recalled what had just occurred.

No matter how much the countess didn’t like the child, Nora couldn’t believe that she was so vulgar and rude in front of the person in question.

Even though the child is young and can’t help but be ignorant of the hostility towards her.

To see that little child frantically looking at her eyes…

‘It’s okay, Tati doesn’t even know what she was talking about.’

In the meantime, the child had smiled and comforted Nora, perhaps understanding Nora’s heart.


‘If you really didn’t understand what she was talking about, you wouldn’t have bothered to say that…….’

But then.

A worried voice called Nora.



She had been thinking about something else for too long with the lady in front of her.

Suddenly coming to her senses, Nora looked down at Tatiana.

“Do not worry.
Because I’m really fine.”

“Yes, all right.”

“I can just sew it back up and stick it on, right?”

Nora comforted Tatiana once again.

“Now that you’ve finished eating, I’ll take you to your bedroom.”

In an instant, the child completely forgot what she had been shrinking from, turned to a brighter color, and asked, “My bedroom?”

Her blue, round eyes were sparkling with anticipation.

‘Ah, she seems to have regained her energy.’

Nora quickly nodded.

“Yes, the bedroom for the lady to stay in is ready.”

“So, then, is that bedroom mine?”

“Sure, it’s a bedroom only for the young lady.”

The child’s face turned red.
Through the clothes, she could feel the child’s tiny heart beating fast with anticipation.

Nora laughed involuntarily.

“Is it really that good?”


The child nodded her head vigorously.

To be so happy with just one bedroom.

Just by looking at that figure, Nora felt like she knew what a miserable life the child had lived so far……


Even though the child was adorable, Nora had a bitter taste in her mouth.


And finally when I saw my room for the first time.

Wow, wow….”

I covered my mouth with both hands and exclaimed in admiration.

But what can I do?

My bedroom is simply fantastic!

“How about it, do you like the bedroom?”

“Yes!” I said and nodded my head vigorously.

A bed with a pretty lace canopy and a fluffy rug.
A wide-open window.

And even the daintily white furniture!

I’ve been to the luxurious bedroom of the Demon’s Castle, I’ve camped outdoors, and I’ve slept in a special room at an inn.

Still, my room is the best!

“I’ll go back now, so if you need anything, call me anytime.”

“Thank you!”

I waved my hand.

Nora smiled at me one last time and then slipped out of the room.

At the same time, I turned my head and looked at the bed.
I’ve been wanting to lie down on this bed for a while now!

As I crawled up onto the bed and lay down on my stomach, the soft feel of the pillow tickled my cheek.

‘Wow, so fluffy…….’

I buried my face in the pillow and kicked with my feet.

……In fact, all of this felt like a dream.

It was good that I made the warriors my guardians, and that I ended up living in such a nice house.

Having my own space for the first time…….


I turned over and lay down straight.

‘If I don’t want to lose this happiness, I have to set my goals straight.’

The excitement of seeing the room for the first time slowly subsided, and a cold sense of reason returned.

I counted my fingers and organized what I had to do.

‘One, to maintain a good relationship with the warriors.’

In order for me to live a stable life in the human world, a good relationship with the heroes is essential.

I somehow made them my guardians, but that was still not enough.
The more the warriors like me, the better it will be for me.

‘Two, avoid the male protagonist of this world somehow.’

The male protagonist is the main culprit who blew my neck off the original work.

It would be best for me to not get entangled with him as much as possible.

‘Three, preparing for independence.’

I cannot live with the warriors forever.

25 years old.

This is the age at which I will awaken as the demon king.

Of course, if I awaken as the demon king and become an absolute being that no one can touch, I won’t need any independence funds at all.

…… The problem is that I still don’t know how to awaken as the Demon King.

So, I decided that it would be better to have a minimum safety net and set aside funds for independence.

In the end, the surest solution to all these problems is…….

‘Four, to awaken as the Demon King.’

This is it.

The benefits I get from awakening as the Demon King are truly enormous.

First of all, I can solve the problem of losing my life force when demonic energy attacks my body.


‘I can take revenge on the demons who abused me!’

The five demons who used me directly had already died, but there was a true darkness.

The ones I really need revenge on…….

‘The Bartoloa clan.’

Just thinking about them made my heart go cold.

More famous by the nickname ‘The Great Bartoloa’, they were no different from the Royal Blood of the demon world.

The leader of all high-ranking demons and the eternal second-in-command of the demon realm.

Although they rarely appear outside, their presence was overwhelming.

As for how great their power is, there is even a popular belief that ‘even though the devil may change someday, Bartoloa is eternal’.

‘The five demons who made me a puppet were all Bartoloa’s subordinates.’

In conclusion, the real villains who threw my life into hell are the Bartoloa family.

‘Damn them.’

My eyes darkened.

However, what is comforting is that since I followed the heroes to the human world, I was freed from Bartoloa’s clutches for the time being.

As long as I keep my mouth shut, the fact that I am the Demon King will not be revealed for a while.

Because for Bartoloa and the high-ranking demons, it would be a considerable burden if it was found out that demons pretended to be the demon king after imprisoning the real demon king.

In addition, according to the original text, the previous warriors entered the demon realm while almost destroying it.

At this point, Bartoloa is the only family that has preserved its full power, so it must be busy trying to repair the damage dealt to the demon world.

What did that mean in the big picture?

It means it’s hard for that cursed family to pay attention to this side.

‘Well, so I think I can be relieved about the demon world for the time being…’

However, once the inside of the Demon Realm is cleaned up, the situation will change completely.

The Bartoloa clan will surely try to get me, the demon king, back.

I don’t know when they will infiltrate the human world and approach me, so I need a means to protect myself without the protection of the warriors.

Hey, it’s a mountain beyond a mountain.

I let out a sigh.

‘In the end, I have to awaken as the Demon King as quickly as possible to solve all these problems, right?’

But since coming under the protection of the warriors, it’s not like I’m completely at ease.

Ever since I came to this townhouse, there was one part that bothered me strangely.


‘Nora’s clothes.’

It’s not anywhere else, it’s a maid’s uniform of a duke’s house.

You pay for such poor-quality clothes to be a maid’s uniform?


I lay down on my bed, stretched out my hands, and stared at them.

It’s hard to lift even tableware with the grip of these tiny hands.
To think that the neck collar could be ripped apart just by lightly grabbing it…

‘It’s a bit suspicious after all.’

I’ve been thinking about things like that.


I covered my mouth and yawned briefly.

Maybe it’s because I took a hot bath and made sure I was full.

My whole body was exhausted.

It felt like the soft blanket was pulling my body down.

‘I shouldn’t be sleeping already, there are so many things to worry about……’

With that thought in mind, I fell asleep without realizing it.
