The strong wind blows Nonna’s hat away.
I reach out, grab the hat and put it back on her head.
I knew it, Nonna’s really beautiful when she smiles.
「The wind’s gotten colder.」
「Yes, the morning and night of the day before yesterday was especially cold. It’s already winter after all.」
There’s nothing strange about that.
The season has changed and it won’t be long until snow starts to fall.
「Then you better be careful not to catch a cold.」
「Ufu, I’ll be fine. I’m quite resistant to the low temperature.」
Nonna adjusts her small fur hat and hooks her arm around mine.
Although her winter clothes exposes little of her body, her giant breasts still press firmly against me.
「When we get back, let’s take a warm bath together. I’ll warm the outside and inside of your body.」
「Oh my! The outside aside, what do you intend to warm the inside with?」
Isn’t that obvious?
The two of us are happily inspecting Rafen.
I was supposed to be doing this alone, except Nonna felt sorry for letting me walk by myself under the wintry sky.
「Aegir-sama cheats too much! I mean, a little is expected of a man…… but you’re walking around the city with a different woman every time, and now rumors have started circulating that make light of me!」
I think back, and even excluding Celia, I’ve been going out with everyone in the family quite often, as well as the assistant Marta, the merchant Claire, and my favorite actress Lilian.
「You made Gretel-san dress up like a dog and played with her, right? According to rumors from the servants, you also put a collar on her.」
We were taking a walk in the back alley with as few people as possible, but I guess we got discovered.
We usually do it in the backyard late at night until one day she wanted to take a walk in town during the day, so I had to respond.
「And then you boldly took Adela to a love inn! I can overlook you being with a mistress, but you could at least stay away from the eyes of the public.」
The lover Adela takes care of my lower half lots and I felt bad just embracing her so I took her out for some fun.
We went out to watch a play, did some shopping, enjoyed meat skewers from a food stand, and eventually proceeded to a love inn after getting in the right mood.
Unable to wait, we fondled each other while requesting a room, maybe that left an impression.
Or perhaps it was because we turned the bed into a sloppy mess. I did leave a cleaning fee though.
「Also it goes without saying that you should play with Claudia-san in the house. That person catches the attention of everyone no matter where you are. Yet, you did something like that!」
Claudia has become fatter since the autumn harvest festival.
Rather, it may be more accurate to say her already spherical body got bigger.
I took Claudia, who has expensive tastes, to a town inn for an interesting experience once in a while.
When I pushed Claudia down on the second floor of the truly cheap lodging, the bed broke and the floor itself gave out as well, causing a huge fuss.
Although we fell down to the first floor still connected, her fleshy body acted as a cushion to keep her safe.
The embarrassment from dropping down fully naked made Claudia incredibly angry, who then sent the complaining innkeep and bodyguard flying before I could lay a hand on them.
With nothing for me to do, I went to the next room during the chaos and embraced Clara.
「When you have a four-person orgy with Marceline-san and her children, you could at least close the window of the carriage.」
Marceline, the former queen of Treia, and her three daughters can’t walk out in the open with so many former Treian citizens chased to Rafen.
However they would probably feel suffocated from being kept in the mansion, so I often took them out in a small carriage to tour Rafen and the neighborhood.
Looking out the carriage window and enjoying the beautiful setting sun created the perfect atmosphere for an orgy.
By the way, my latest obsession is to line the four of them up and spray my load on their faces one at a time.
I can’t get enough of the sense of domination I feel from painting mother and child with my seed.
After covering them, I would kiss them and proceed to the second round.
「Moreover, didn’t you have sex with Leah in a strange way? It’s shameful so I’d like if you controlled yourself.」
She must be referring to when I took Leah to the back alley for some rape play.
Her resistance and screaming was so realistic when I blocked her mouth and fucked her from behind that I found myself in a difficult spot of having to run after the guards were alerted.
「Also be mindful that servants are in the mansion whenever you have sex, so hide when you conduct any perverted acts which are outside of the norm.」
She’s most likely referring to my time with Carla and Alice.
Carla wanted to be seen by others as she sucks my dick and urinates outside, so she purposely did it in front of servants.
Not to mention, her excessive energy led her to do things beyond expectations, causing Lamia who lives in the courtyard to chase her away angrily.
「Aegir-sama, I’ve already told you that stupid Carla is hopeless!」
With Alice, we had proper sex on the bed, except her moaning was abnormally loud.
Her asshole was widened like no other by the roper so she can easily swallow my entire cock.
I then gave her an anal pounding, making her cry out like she was dying.
Alice didn’t stop screaming even after Celia and patrol guards rushed to check on the situation.
「You were with Maria in the kitchen too……」
That was a blunder.
Nonna came into the kitchen and caught me when Maria was giving me a blowjob.
That shocked Maria into biting down on my cock and nearly cost her some teeth.
「And Mel-san in the living room!」
With Mel, she was playing the role of a married woman craving for cheating sex on a lazy afternoon.
Nonna walked in right when I was ejaculating and I ended up cumming non-stop for two to three minutes with Nonna and her attendant watching.
「You did it in the hallway too.」
I started with Catherine in a room, but with her easily-aroused body, she moved all around the room while I fucked her.
During all that, the door opened and she happened to roll outside, although that didn’t stop us from continuing where we left off.
「Sebastian is getting fed up too!」
Ah, the time when Kuu and Ruu were fellating me.
I guess he saw the two of them licking me while calling me “nii-san” and “onii-chan”.
Sebastian ultimately pretended not to see and confirmed everything was locked up before walking out of the room. Apparently Kuu and Ruu avoided eye contact with him for a while.
「On top of that you were making babies with Sofia-san!」
Sofia wanted a child so I had to do my best.
I’m surprised she knew.
「It’s because you were doing it with the window open! I could hear you shout “get pregnant!!” in the middle of the night.」
I’ll do it after shutting the window next time.
「You embraced Rita-san in front of Kroll and Alma! What are you doing, teaching them promiscuity at that age!?」
As I was taking Rita to the bedroom after her shift was over, we coincidentally heard a moan come from Kroll’s room, who we found fucking Alma.
I thought it would be fun to join in so Kroll and I did it in front of each other until morning.
「And then there’s Mireille-san――huh? Well, I guess that’s enough.」
I’m still continuing my relationship with the sweetheart Cheri and also with Altair and Remia, which I don’t bring up.
I hug Nonna from behind after she got herself more and more upset from listing all my sexual escapades.
「I put on a front sometimes…… but I do feel lonely when I hear you spending time with other girls…… and I get jealous……」
「Sorry, for cheating on you all the time. Let me apologize by warming you up.」
I wrap my arms tightly around her, press my lips against her neck and blow hot air inside her coat.
「M-my neck feels tingly! Aaaah gosh!」
Despite complaining, her tone of voice softens.
「Look. Isn’t that the feudal lord and his wife?」
「I’m envious of how lovey-dovey they are.」
「You too are still so young. How nice.」
Nonna turns red when she hears the comments of the spectators and perhaps not feeling as annoyed anymore, shyly pounds my chest.
This is a good atmosphere. Let’s go to an inn now.
「No. We’re going to do the inspection today, and I told Myla-san that as well, so it would be clear to everyone if we went to an inn midway through.」
Right. If it was reported that we went missing, a search would be initiated and that’s bad news.
「The first thing we’re checking are the soldiers, right? Will we go outside the walls?」
「No, the inspection will just be in Rafen.」
I buy a small fruit at a street stand in the central plaza.
Nonna was reluctant as the legal wife to consume the product right after it was bought, although her sour face turned into a smile after she took one bite.
As long as one has delicious food and women to eat, to hell with status.
When we arrive at the training grounds, Myla and the others come over to meet us.
「They’re able to get into formation more smoothly now. Many new soldiers were recruited lately so I have to continue working hard to raise the overall skill level.」
With her excellent commanding ability, Myla mainly looks to improve the soldiers’ ability to create formations and their ability to cooperate.
「Wah, they’re lined so neatly.」
Nonna also seems to be pleased with the orderly ranks.
Naturally, she is not very knowledgeable or interested in the military, but she does like the ceremonial marching of soldiers.
As an aside, there have been times when Myla was giving out instructions beside me that I have circled my arm behind her and fingered her holes.
Myla desperately endured so the soldiers won’t find out, however her voice gradually became more erotic-sounding and lots of soldiers ended up with a boner.
Of course, she got angry later and pinched my arm as hard as she could.
「That’s where you charge in!」
「But won’t the defense formation detour around?」
「The spears are still scattered like zawaah! Until you get them tight like bssh, a horse can go whoosh and breakthrough like dokan!」
Irijina, who is proficient in individual combat, is focusing on improving the soldiers’ battle capability in smaller scale fights.
She’s responsible for training small squads on how to charge and polishing the individual technique of the soldiers.
「Kyaa! ……it feels like the horses will crash into me, it’s scary.」
Nonna does not seem fond of the charge training.
She watches regardless because we’re doing an inspection, hiding behind me most of the time.
As an aside, I’ve had rough sex with Irijina during her breaks.
Since she can’t wash her body, I would fuck her while she’s sweaty, and often times we end up on the floor of the tents.
Almost always, soldiers would come running because of how near we got to the time limit, except we never stopped, which resulted in more than a few soldiers watching.
Irijina was worried that she would be made fun of, however being able to endure the rough sex ended up making the soldiers respect her instead.
Still, she got angry and stole my meat during dinner time.
「Turn to the right.」
「From behind…… there!」
Luna and Ruby belong exclusively to the bow cavalry.
The bow cavalry, composed only of the mountain nation with their superior archery and riding skills, have gotten quite familiar with my squad, although still have their own characteristic way of shooting and charging so it’s impossible to train them unless you know their particular way of doing things.
Their handling of horses is also outstanding and average commanders can’t keep up.
「Everyone can ride so well. I can’t ride any horse besides Schwartz.」
Nonna can’t ride horses.
Schwartz is an exception because that guy pays special attention and care so she doesn’t fall off.
Even so, I don’t usually let Nonna ride him.
I know he enjoys the soft feeling of her breasts when Nonna clings to his back.
As an aside, there was a time when I visited Luna and Ruby’s room during the night to find ten women from the bow cavalry waiting for me.
The girls were at a suitable age to marry and had their partners decided already, however they wanted my seed before going back to their village.
I was hesitant when I knew they had future husbands, though I ended up impregnating them anyways, however I got too fired up and made the mistake of falling asleep without entertaining Luna and Ruby.
Of course, they sulked and so I made it up to them by going for a long ride.
The ranks of the bow cavalry are unusually out of sync this time.
When I look closer, I see frightened horses keeping their distance from a large lizard.
「Pochi, run more in time with everybody else.」
The source of the disorder was the lizard rider Pipi and her mount Pochi.
That lizard is already close to 5 m long and is quite intimidating when running on all fours, so I don’t blame the horses for being scared.
Its snarling is getting lower in pitch and its face is losing its cuteness. No, it never looked cute in the first place.
Messerschmitt is lying on its head.
I’m impressed how that thing can stay there with all the vigorous moving Pochi is doing.
「Um…… regarding Pochi……」
Nonna speaks anxiously.
「It’s constantly getting bigger and won’t fit in Pipi’s room anymore.」
Now I have to get a little house constructed outside for it.
That thing has a huge body, but tends to get lonely, so it will probably get pretty loud at night with all its crying.
「No, that’s not what I mean…… what I’m trying to say is, isn’t that……」
「I know what it may look like, but it’s a good pet. No need to worry even if it grows bigger. I’ll get Pipi to scold it if it breaks a vase.」
When Pipi yells, Pochi curls up dejectedly.
Nonna still looks like she has something to say, then suddenly she realizes something and hides behind me.
It’s the appearance of sourface.
「The current state of progress is about 70%. The first stage is expected to be complete before the next year, although there is clear lag. Beginning next year, large scale training will be conducted to remedy the issue.」
Leopolt reports without any hint of emotion.
「Is that so.」
Nonna gives a curt reply of disinterest and looks up.
It’s a little funny to see her struggle to deal with Leopolt.
Leopolt is doing all the important work from organizing the squads, recruiting soldiers, provisioning weapons and supplies, and formulating training regimens.
He would give out instructions that Myla, Irijina, Luna, and I follow.
It feels like there is a mistake in that last part, but I’ll forgive him because he’s doing such a good job.
「It has been three months since the founding of the South Yuguria Empire, and with the resolution of internal disorder nearing, it is possible they will take action soon. The most important focus for us now is reinforcing the army. It should really be the entire kingdom mobilizing though.」
The South Yuguria Empire is a new nation born from the unification of the Polpo Kingdom, the Divine Nation of Altair, and the People’s Federation of Vandolea.
The one reigning over all of it is―― Empress Wilhelmina I―― that Wilhelmina.
Altair and Vandolea has lost considerable strength due to the natural disaster and disease, but it doesn’t change the fact that both of them are still large countries.
After absorbing both entities, the Yuguria Empire has undoubtedly become a strong nation.
「Erich has been notified already. However it seems His Majesty’s stance of noninterference with the southern nations is not wavering. As long as nothing serious is happening, he won’t construct any castles or strengthen the royal army.」
「So that means the strategic advantage lies with them.」
Don’t say it in such an unpleasant manner. It’s something I can’t do anything about even if I grumble.
Besides, I haven’t considered making Wilhelmina an enemy yet.
She’s a beauty after all.
「Do what you can to the best of your ability.」
Leopolt quietly lowers his head slightly.
As an aside, there was a time during night training when Nina came to the training grounds to bring Leopolt a change of clothes.
Thinking this is surely the time they’ll do the deed, I went ahead to the ceiling of their tent to secure a spot, except the two of them didn’t say a word to each other.
It was becoming harder to maintain my position and then I strained my stomach too much, which squeezed out a large fart.
When the sudden noise shocked Nina onto her back, revealing her plain fluffy underwear, I realized it wasn’t happening and left with Leopolt letting out a disproving sigh.
For some time after that, my heart would hurt whenever Nina glared at me with teary eyes.
「Madam, please take this so your body doesn’t get cold.」
「Ara, how considerate.」
Gido handed her some warm honey.
Being part of the escort unit, he has spent a considerable time by my side and has become quite thoughtful towards women.
Furthermore, he has a baby face with handsome facial features, as well as a large dick, making him popular among the ladies.
「The other day, that girl from Honey Springs fell madly in love with you and asked you to come again. Let’s go tonight. I’m sure she’ll entertain you wholeheartedly.」
「Wha-! Chief, now is not the time! ……we can meet up at the Hard-boiled Pavilion after training is over.」
Alright, I’ll tell your wife you left for a brief night training exercise.
I think Nonna’s ears just twitched, but surely she can’t hear at this volume.
「By the way, I don’t see Tristan anywhere.」
Oh yeah, now that you mention it.
All the commander level personnel should have gathered.
Just when I thought it was strange not seeing him, I find a nearby unmotivated…… ‘man’ who is even more pathetic than the ordinary rank-and-file soldier.
「Gosh, sorry about that. I had some important work.」
Tristan appears calm and without a care in the world.
My initial thoughts were that he went to the toilet, but that was apparently not the case.
「……you know it’s past noon, right?」
Nonna asks coldly.
My eyes also narrow.
One side of his shirt collar is raised, his buttons are misaligned, his hair is unkempt―― it’s clear as day he was sleeping somewhere until now and rushed out to greet us.
「Irijina, time for some training on how to react when an enemy scout is discovered. Don’t let him escape and take him down!」
「Got it! Finish off the scout! Skewer him!!」
Irijina takes a few soldiers with her and chases after Tristan.
It’s very important to see whether they can finish off scouts properly.
This will be worthwhile training.
「Wait! Horses aren’t allowed, I’m going to die!」
As an aside, I’ve now confirmed the intimate relationship between Tristan and that girl from the book rental place.
I was curious to find out so I used the escort unit to investigate.
Every two or three days, he would go to that girl’s place and then come back during late nights or early mornings, so I’m sure of it.
What’s most interesting to note is that he leaves sighing and comes back with a look of relief on his face.
I can’t figure out the reason why. Further investigation is required.
Ohh, we’re finally here.
Celia jumps off her horse in front of me and makes a pretty spin before landing.
「I didn’t want to show Aegir-sama anything unsightly so I did my best!」
Celia doesn’t have a fixed role so she shows up in places she deems necessary.
In addition, she would look at all the squads and report the weaknesses to me in an easily understandable way.
「Thanks for everything. If you weren’t here, I wouldn’t be able to interpret Leopolt’s difficult explanations.」
「No, people have things they are good at and things they are bad at! Aegir-sama isn’t suited to tasks which use the mind so I will support you!」
I’m so thankful. It’s so nice to have Celia around.
「By the way Celia-chan……」
「……yes. Regarding that matter, right?」
Celia and Nonna whisper to each other.
There’s nothing more boorish than eavesdropping on a woman’s secret.
「――was not there.」
At least make sure I can’t hear.
「―― to send back.」
I should cover my ears.
「By the way Aegir-sama, can’t you do anything about that woman?」
Celia stares off to one point―― specifically at Sekrit.
Sekrit answers her glare with a sneer.
「Umumu, maybe it’s better to just ignore it……」
Sekrit has been showing up to military training lately.
Apparently, she’s commenting about every little thing.
Obviously Myla, Celia, and the other commanders are angry, and with Sekrit not knowing how to control herself, the situation became quite explosive.
And so, orders were issued to “not lay hands on that woman” and “pay no attention to her since she has no authority”.
She doesn’t listen regardless.
Well, it doesn’t seem any real damage was done so I want to ignore it. I wonder if she’s bored.
「Get into anti-cavalry formation――!」
「Kuku, what a relaxed formation change. That might work if the enemy rides on donkeys.」
「Circle around from the right! Get into a semi-circle quickly!」
「That’s the left, stupid. See if you can do it while arrows rain down, redo it starting from the privates.」
「Cannoneers, move! Do it quickly!」
「Fool, deploy in the northeast to start.Only a dullard would move around cannons so much.」
She’s unleashing a barrage of poison while seated with her legs crossed.
I don’t blame the soldiers for hating her.
She has some guts to act so laid back despite all the hostile intent being directed at her.
It must have something to do with her being a former admiral of a grand fleet.
「Shit, that damn woman…… she knows I can’t lay hands on her……」
「Saying whatever she wants just because the feudal lord likes her……」
「I want to fuck her until she screams!」
Sekrit responds to the soldiers’ complaints.
「That’s right. I have the looks, the body and pussy that he enjoys. If you’re so unhappy, would you like to try having a go at me? I’m sure with dozens of you, you can hold me down and stick it in. It just comes down to whether you have the courage.」
Sekrit spreads her legs to the grumbling soldiers. They can probably see her underwear.
「I’ll be killed by the feudal lord……」
「L-let’s get back to training.」
I should give her some work to do.
When she isn’t occupied, she’s the type to do bad things.
「That woman―― Aegir-sama! Please give her some harsh punishment!」
「Yeah, I know.」
Sekrit loves being tormented and tormenting others so anything I do won’t be very effective.
I can’t actually injure her either. What a dilemma.
That does it for the inspection of the military. Where to next?
「Next is the domestic affairs department. That’s in the building constructed last month.」
Oh, that’s right.
The domestic affairs department refers to the place where Adolph supervises all of the internal activity of the territory.
Adolph has been getting by in his own room or in my office, however it’s starting to get cramped in either room, so I had a new structure set up for him and also assigned him with many assistants.
I sent him a luxurious sleeping bag to go with the founding of the department so he could sleep whenever he wanted, but he cleverly diverted it to his room.
Now he can get some proper rest and he won’t be going bald again.
The brand new two-story building is a little east of Claire’s store, in a spot with lots of open space.
I initially thought it would be built near my mansion or next to the security unit.
His reasoning was “building it in the city is better for accepting petitions and requests from citizens” and “people may be frightened by the security unit and avoid coming”, thus the current location was chosen.
「Yo, you’re working?」
「Does it look like Aegir-sama’s assets will increase?」
Adolph is seated at a new desk.
Hey, did you just try to hide a sigh? You can’t fool me.
「Of course I’m working. There is plenty that needs to be done. ……if the army manages to stay under budget, we would have an increase in surplus…… with the winter tax revenue and the selling of grains, things should go smoothly.」
Go tell Leopolt.
If you manage to convince him, I’ll stamp my seal on anything you want.
「Don’t work too much or you’ll go bald. Drink this.」
I give him the experimental nourishment tonic which Natia handed to me.
One sip and you’ll feel like you’re in heaven, as if all the fatigue was blown away.
It seems scary so I didn’t test it out.
「……I’ll take it later.」
Adolph hands the potion to Polte beside him.
He’s scared, I know it, sissy.
Oh right, Polte has been here the whole time as the Kingdom’s practical training supervisor.
Apparently she has been continuously requesting for an extended stay…… don’t tell me she’s developed a thing for Adolph.
If so, I have to find out for sure.
「Pardon me, since you’re here, do you have time to talk?」
Adolph sounds astounded, while Polte’s face turns red.
「Don’t tell me, I expressed it in words?」
「Not simply that. It was shouted loudly.」
Nonna corrects me. Well, I’ll be more careful next time.
「First, in regards to the fire pox in the south…… it has drastically decreased in prevalence. As expected, the disease is weak to the cold.」
Natia was telling me how the fishman ball has been used up.
「It’s a good thing if we only consider our territory.」
Shouldn’t it be good for all places?
「The situation should be the same for the South Yuguria Empire. In other words, the disease resolved itself naturally in the lands of former Altair and Vandolea, and they should be doing all they can to recover their national strength.」
We’ll get fewer refugees and Wilhelmina will have an easier time ruling over them.
「Also the ash has stopped coming out from the Dard Mountain. The timing made it seem like someone was waiting on the establishment of the South Yuguria Empire.」
Isn’t that a good thing?
If their production of crops increases, we can trade with them.
I can use that as fate and deepen my bond with Wilhelmina, and possibly make children―― or maybe not.
Adolph gathers his papers and taps them on the desk lightly to create a neat stack before speaking in a weary tone.
「You’re not serious, are you?」
「…… what do you mean?」
Wilhelmina is a beauty.
I want to trust in beauties.
「That nation has a hold over Polpo, Altair, and Vandolea. That nation isn’t called Yuguria, it’s South Yuguria. Do you know what that means?」
I know. I know, but still want to believe in her.
「I won’t believe her. You’re okay with that, right?」
I’m going to pay Melissa a visit now.
She might give birth at any time now. I don’t know if the baby is holding on, but she isn’t feeling any contractions.
I look out through the window.
「Even though it’s gotten cold, this is just like――」
A cold wind blows and the setting sun sinks below the horizon.
This red is just like the earth is on fire.
