The Villainess Princess Will Dive into the Labyrinth Again Today – Chapter 66
Chapter 66: The villainess princess Miliaria is going
“Whew! I’ve completed one task! Yes, I did it, Okaa-sama! With this, our country will be secure and protected!”
Miliaria exclaimed as she landed from the sky and joined the waiting carriage. She wiped the sweat from her forehead.
“Uh-huh! Thanks for waiting, Leon!
The golden lion pulling the carriage was adorned with armor and the shining-eyed child was eagerly speaking.
When the spirit steel armor worn by Dark was not in use, it was designed to be wrapped around the golden lion like this.
“Uh-huh! No matter how many times I see it, the appearance is so cool! The name I gave you, the Dark Lion War Cloak, is not a bad one!”
“It seems like you’re having a good time, and that’s the most important thing, Dark.”
When Miliaria spoke, Dark, the dark child, nodded eagerly with an innocent face resembling that of a real child.
“Uh-huh! It was a great idea to make sure Leon could wear it too!”
“Even before, it was impressive, but now it’s even more powerful.”
“Is that a problem?”
“No. I like it too, so let’s keep doing it. It looks impressive.”
The armor crafted with care by the artisan was at its best when paired with the golden lion, creating a massive impact.
The most important thing was that Dark seemed to be enjoying it.
“Well done. You did an amazing job and helped me a lot!”
When Miliaria thanked him for accompanying her at today’s tea ceremony, Dark’s face became complicated for some reason.
“But did you have to go to such lengths?”
Dark asked, to which Miliaria nodded deeply, “It was necessary. By putting on such a grand display, I should have improved my relationships with others in a tangible way.”
The title of First Princess is not easily taken away, but by putting on such a grand display, she should have solidified her position.
The fact that the eldest daughter has the attribute of darkness and the second daughter has the attribute of light has always been a problem.
There are many who dislike it, and because their title is so powerful, it is bound to attract the ambitions of those around them and become a catalyst.
However, by dramatically breaking the balance, the elements causing trouble should have been neatly sorted out.
Miliaria nodded contentedly, saying she wanted Lyra to study and pursue love in a clean school without the villainess.
“But, you know. Would you truly enjoy this world as it is? Would it not be better to stay as a princess with all its privileges? In the future, you will likely face pursuers from your homeland…”
However, it seemed that Dark was still not convinced.
In response, Miliaria spoke with a relaxed tone, “Is there something frightening about being pursued? If you have any concerns, I will listen and stand up for you. It will be a good workout.”
“No, but… you said that the queen is going to die soon. Is that really okay?”
Dark could see that Miliaria was being thoughtful.
So, Miliaria took a deep breath and explained the future to Dark.
“It’s probably going to be okay. Okaa-sama… I was the one who was supposed to kill Queen Crystania…”
Dark’s eyes widened in shock.
This is a part of the story that is not told in much detail because the main character is from Lila’s point of view, as she discovered while sorting through her information.
“This is based on the official setting information. Half a year after enrolling in the academy, I was guided by the forbidden books left behind by the demon king. There, I was possessed by the ghost of the demon king and assassinated the current Queen Crystania.”
Although it was a shocking revelation, Miliaria was slightly relieved to hear that her mother was not actually sick and dying.
“W-Well, but … is it possible for something like that to happen? The queen is quite powerful. Could Miliaria, who hasn’t even been trained, lose to a mere human ghost?”
“Well, I don’t know if I’ll lose or not … it’s all just a hypothetical scenario.”
Yes, because it is a story that has not yet happened.
But Miliaria, who had a mock battle, could confirm one thing.
Queen Crystania was overwhelmingly stronger than the final boss, Miliaria.
So why did Queen Crystania lose?
After much thought, Miliaria came to a possible conclusion.
Maybe Okaa-sama couldn’t kill because it was Miliaria who was possessed.
The truth remains unknown, and the same incident will never occur again.
But the mother who had trained with her was strong, and the feeling of love and care Miliaria felt was not just her imagination.
Miliaria’s conclusion couldn’t be shared with others, but having something warm and comforting in her heart wasn’t a bad thing.
“Miliaria herself is completely controlled without her knowledge. It seems to happen because I have a high aptitude for darkness, so I resist for a while… I have occasional flashbacks and memories. And then the heroine enters the school as a queen candidate, and her fiancé falls for the heroine, causing Miliaria’s dark emotions to explode and she falls completely into darkness. The First Princess of the Humming Kingdom is taken over by the demon king and successfully takes over the country through brainwashing. That’s the storyline.”
“Well, it’s a what if, what if…”
Miliaria groaned that it was the worst and fully agreed with Dark.
“…Well, yeah. But… So, you don’t like romance? Isn’t playing with handsome men the most important thing in this world?”
Miliaria thought that he would be satisfied with this, but Dark now had a more meta-like perspective.
It was true that romance was an integral part of the game as far as Milliaria was concerned, but…
“You have quite an appetite, don’t you.”
“That’s right. Now, I can probably handle most things. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty directly, I’ll do it for you…”
Dark started to say this, but Miliaria stopped him by furrowing her brow.
“Well…There are various reasons for that.”
However, Miliaria had come to consider various things and was sure of one thing.
“… I’ve been struggling a lot and I think…”
“It seems that I enjoy watching my characters fall in love more than I do myself.”
It was clear that the look of sympathy had completely disappeared from Dark’s face.
Miliaria protested against Dark’s confused gaze.
“I feel a wonderfully disappointing aura! No… Even if not, isn’t love fundamentally not my cup of tea, a minefield for me?”
Dark groaned in distress at Miliaria’s straightforward words.
If Miliaria had something called destiny, and if there was a trigger for its destruction, then that was exactly what was suspicious.
“Even if fate doesn’t exist, it’s understandable for someone to have a strong belief and narrow perspective based on their personality.”
“By the way, I must also mention something meta. Do you know the happy ending of the Concerto of the Light Princess?”
“You see, the story is about a Okaa-sama whose light is consumed by darkness, and a new light guides the people towards a better future.”
Due to the focus on the main characters, it can be challenging to grasp, but Miliaria believes that the essence of the story is a grand replacement narrative.
“The heroine is a girl with a powerful light attribute. She possesses the necessary qualifications to be a queen. Even if she stumbles on her path and becomes insufficient as a ruler, she will eventually find a wonderful husband who is excellent and exceptional. The rain will fall, and the earth will solidify. The Humming Kingdom is destined for greater prosperity.”
Therefore, as the villainess, it is a clear role for Miliaria to lead them as the Demon King.
Even if Miliaria doesn’t go rogue, the outcome is unlikely to change.
“Even if it doesn’t turn out that way, as long as I’m here, similar problems will arise eventually. The part that can’t be solved with combat strength might be even more dire.”
Oh no, Dark is feeling disheartened.
But Miliaria wasn’t exactly pessimistic.
“Well, that’s what I mean when I say that I have to play the role of the enemy even though I know that.”
“Besides, I’ve already messed up. It’s too late to regret it now.”
“…That’s true too.”
“Don’t worry, if we’ve come this far, we’ll be okay. We’ve already cut the flag from the root. Let’s enjoy something other than romance for a while. It’s fulfilling just to admire and love handsome boys.”
Miliaria was proud of this being the best way to fulfill her desires.
“I-is that okay?”
“Well, love isn’t everything in the world. Let’s switch gears.”
Let’s go on a food tour first, shall we?
It might be intriguing to search for spirits and gods other than darkness and light that might exist somewhere.
Why not embark on a thrilling journey searching for formidable beasts?
“Come on! The adventure has just begun! There’s no time to be discouraged from the start!”
When Miliaria pointed in the right direction, Dark finally nodded in agreement.
That’s good. A somber atmosphere isn’t fitting for a lively departure.
“Alright! Then let’s set off!”
Just as they were about to start their journey, they were stopped by Dark.
As Miliaria halted her movements and looked around to see what was happening, she heard a familiar voice from a distance.
“Miliaria-sama! I know you’re here! Please wait for me!”
It was definitely Mary’s voice, and Miliaria sighed wryly.
It may be troublesome to have another companion, but having more travel companions is not a bad thing, especially as they will be traveling around the world.
“By the way, Dark, do you have any specific destinations in mind?”
When Miliaria asked her first travel companion, Dark, for any preferences, he pondered for a moment and spoke.
“Yeah… come to think of it, I heard about a dungeon called the Spirit Palace somewhere in this world. It’s said to be the homeland of all spirits. I wanted to visit it once.”
“What’s that… that’s amazing!”
This was another intriguing dungeon information that had come to light.
Miliaria’s eyes lit up with excitement at the prospect of challenging this dungeon.
No matter how she looked at it, it was clear that things were about to get more interesting, and Miliaria eagerly anticipated their future journey.
