Chapter 252: Pleading for Life

Aww… Naofumi made a friend. How sweet.

I’ve said it time and again, but I’m just a translator. Don’t blame me for these events…


Chapter 252: Pleading for Life

“They’ll back us up with medical facilities and military power if Witch agrees to attend to their king.” (Queen)

The Queen continues speaking in a calm tone.
Even though the restrictive clothes Witch is wearing prevents her from moving her hands, she desperately struggles to use them to cover her ears.

I unintentionally let out a smile.
And this is the first time Raphtalia doesn’t raise her voice at me.
Though, she’s probably just overwhelmed by the situation right now.

“In reality, it’s a crueler sentence than death. The woman who lived her life by bewitching men will die by a man’s hand.” (Queen)
“Even so…” (Naofumi)

From what I’ve heard, he’s an evil scum of a man, but the fact that he’s male bothers me.
What do we do if Witch works her wiles on him as well?
The only thing she’s good at is deceiving people.

She may abuse her needlessly good appearance to twist the King of Faubley around her fingers.
If that happens, then we’ll get a situation more dire than any we’ve faced.

“Is there any chance that Witch is the exception? That she’ll be able to make use of the King?” (Naofumi)
“I won’t say the chance of conciliation is zero, but up until now, the countries apart from ours have tried countless times. Because he rules the world’s largest empire, getting him under your thumb is the same as taking control of the world. However, there’s no precedent of him ever listening to the words of a woman.” (Queen)

So he’s like the current Motoyasu. In a bad way.
The current Motoyasu isn’t a scumbag like the previous one. He’s more like a broken madman.
And if you think about it, that king’s a condensation of the blood of otherworlders. He may be like the past Motoyasu.
But Motoyasu is kinda a Feminist.

“Even Witch should be able to tell whether or not her words will get through. Right? When she studied abroad, she was chosen by him after a single glance, and she almost fainted. Perhaps this matter has been decided since that point in time.” (Queen)
“Mama! I beg you! This is the only thing I’ll ask of you in my life! Please! Please defer your decision!” (Witch)
“Let’s see… It is a matter that strains my heart as well. But even if you claim to be brainwashed, society won’t forgive you so easily… Alright. Then how about I entrust your fate to the heroes?” (Queen)
“What!?” (Witch)

The Queen closes her fan and smiles at us.
What does she plan on doing? It’s probably nothing good.

“If there’s a single hero here who wishes to take Witch under their wing, then I’ll defer my decision to Faubley.” (Queen)
“Cut the cra-” (Naofumi)

Before I can finish, Witch uses all of her strength to get away from the soldiers holding her and prostrates herself on the ground before me.

“Hero of the Shield-sama! I’ll do anything! Please… please take me up as your comrade once more!” (Witch)
“…” (Naofumi)

She’s really desperate.
She’s hanging her head while throwing teary side glances to everyone in the room.
I silently step on her head.

“Thank you! Trample on me as much as you wish! I’ll do anything. If you ask me to act as your pig, I will do it for the rest of my life!” (Witch)

The fact that this makes me really happy makes me once again realize that I’m a scumbag.
Raphtalia stares at me with a complicated expression.
But I’m not swayed.

“Get violated by that pig and die!” (Naofumi)

I kick her away with all my might.
She stares daggers into me once more, but realizing she doesn’t have the time, she moves over to Ren.

“Hero of the Sword-sama-” (Witch)
“Go to hell!” (Ren)

Ren’s eyes are dead!
He’s not going to forgive Witch here.
Though if he did, I would beat him to death.

“Hero of the Spear! Please offer me forgiveness!” (Witch)
“Firo-tan, do you want to go for a scenic drive after this?” (Motoyasu)
“No!” (Firo)

Witch finally kneels before Motoyasu, but he’s flirting with Firo and doesn’t hear her.
Firo seems terrified.
And for a drive… Where do you plan on going?
Is riding a Filo Rial even considered driving?

Anyways, Motoyasu doesn’t react to Witch at all. Because she is a woman.
But Witch refuses to give up.
She desperately appeals to Motoyasu.
They’ve known each other for a while, and he may be the only one here who would willingly save her.
… The past Motoyasu that is.

“What is this ugly Red Pig? Firo-tan is finally looking my way, you know. Go away pig.” (Motoyasu)
“Motoyasu, if you don’t deny her, she’ll follow you home.” (Naofumi)
“Then disappear!” (Motoyasu)

Motoyasu swiftly pushes Witch away.
Amazing. He completely ignored his beloved witch when she was pleading to him with teary eyes.
Humans sure do change.
And Itsuki is absent.

“Mama! The Hero of the Bow isn’t present! This isn’t a fair trial.” (Witch)
“Should you really be saying that!? (Naofumi)
“Right! Whose fault do you think it is that Itsuki ended up like that!?” (Ren)

Ren accuses her loudly.
Itsuki’s absent because of you!
Even if it’s wrong… Well, I’ll explain it to him later, but once he calms down, he’ll surely reject you!

“Damn you all! Rather going to Faubley, I’d rather die here and now!” (Witch)

A snapping sound resounds through the room.
Witch bit her own tongue with a lot of force.
Blood starts flowing from her mouth.
Did she commit suicide? Is this sentence really that bad!?

“Don’t let her die! Take her alive!” (Naofumi)

Why the hell am I saying such lines?
The soldiers run over to Witch, and the healers begin desperately casting healing magic on her.
A cloth is shoved into her mouth, and her life is saved.

“And that’s the result. What should we do for Witch’s trial?” (Queen)
“Nothing’s been decided, but I’m a little satisfied… or perhaps I should say bewildered.” (Naofumi)

I got to abuse Witch when she was desperately lowering her head to me. I guess I’ve calmed down a bit.
Perhaps Ren is the same. A cold smile floats on his face.
The current Ren is a person who would sacrifice his own body for his allies, yet…

Motayasu is… Stop chasing Firo around already.

“Then we’ll reset Witch’s level to 1 and ship her to Faubley… I’m a little worried with just the castle’s soldiers, so could Iwatani-sama personally escort her?” (Queen)
“Rejected. What reason would I ever have to spend a long period of time with that Bitch?” (Naofumi)

But the Queen’s opinion is sound.
With just this country’s soldiers, there’s too great a risk.
Even so, if I leave, then that would mean setting my land and Itsuki’s matter aside.
Though with my Portal Shield, I would be able to jump back and forth. It would be a pain, but it’s possible…

… Ah, right.

“Fumu… We don’t know when or where Witch’s conspirators will try and recover her. Could you put Motoyasu on transportation duty?” (Naofumi)
“Leave it to me!” (Motoyasu)

Before the Queen can speak, Motoyasu steps forward with pride.

“Then I’ll leave it to you.” (Queen)

The Queens words don’t reach him, though.
Motoyasu can’t hear any female voices.

“Motoyasu, when you’re in the middle of transportation… if the pig ever tries to run, kill it without hesitation. Also, keep it under your watch until you confirm that it gets violated by the King of Faubley, and return after you have a magic crystal record of the scene.” (Naofumi) (TL: ……)
“Yes! Understood!” (Motoyasu)

With this, I probably have nothing to worry about.
Well, if Motoyasu gets taken out, there’s nothing we would have been able to do in the first place.
Even if the Queen turns out to be lying, I can order him to kill Witch.

“The ride of the Filo Rials at my place is said to be a living hell. And after that, an even greater hell awaits.” (Naofumi)

Kukuku… I look at Witch collapsed on the floor and laugh to myself.

After that, I watched over Witch’s treatment and her Level Reset. I left her in the care of Motoyasu and his Filo Rials.
In order to prevent her from biting her tongue again, her mouth was stuffed.

The tied up Witch glares at us menacingly from the carriage window.
This time, her eyes are colored with tears and despair.
Even if she tries to rebel, she can do nothing at level 1.

“Mu-!” (Witch)
“Enjoy your final trip to its fullest.” (Naofumi)

And like this, Witch tumbles down the one-way road to hell.
But she got what she deserved.

Ah, let me offer a description.
The crystal Motoyasu used as evidence… It was that Camera-like crystal that my wanted poster was displayed on… I received the recorded footage of Witch being tortured by the pig… no, the King of Faubley.
By the way, it also had audio.

Honestly, there was nothing more disgusting in this world. But, I have to see Witch’s last days through to the end.
It seemed that The King himself graciously let it be recorded.
Something about driving Witch into further despair… He was really human filth.

I want to avoid meeting him at all costs, but the King of Faubley personally invited me over to hear my opinion on the evidence footage.
Please leave me alone…
I had a lot to say, but for numerous reasons, I politely declined.

By the way, it seemed that it was very rare for Faubley’s King to send out invitations like that.
Even the Queen was surprised at the message.

And after Motoyasu transported Witch to Faubley, we received news of her death two weeks later.
Her body was sent back as evidence, preserved with Ice Magic.
It was not a pretty sight.

And, it seemed the King developed an attachment to using those Crystals to record. He sent numerous ones to me after that.
I never looked through them. When I saw the first one, it recorded all the way to the subject’s death.
Did he think sending such things would earn my friendship?
Don’t send footage of any woman besides Witch…

(TL: And now, Naofumi’s traumatized for life)

I’m still soft. I’ve only caught a glimpse of this world’s darkness.
I want to stay out of it if possible.
I engrave these words onto my heart.

Like this, I finally cut my long ties with Witch… It was so abrupt that it seems anti-climactic. It doesn’t seem real.

 


(Note: “I just realized. Did Naofumi just invent AVs [adult videos] for this world?”

          *sigh*. really now…. i read some of the comments here and i am all for punishing that bitch but having her be the toy of someone who sees women as toys is….it’s just sick. that’s, like, rape.Oh dont get me wrong, im fine with ANY other punishment than that. execution, torture, no problem. but when it involves things like rape though, that is a line i wont cross in terms of enjoying the misfortune of others. man if they wanted to the heroes could just force the other continents to behave. together, who could beat them? the seven star heroes? c’mon, be serious here.so the short of it i this: it would have been best if she was killed rather than been given as a sex toy to some old pig. also i kinda hate that that pig has taken so many women in such a way in the first place. again, its rape isnt it? or as near as it can be if not. i dont know. the whole chapter just left a sour taste in my mouth. Naofumi could subjugate any of the major powers in this world. after all, he pretty much has all three heroes under his control right now and an army of pretty powerful slaves. only Ren may speak against him and even then he could be persuaded. sometimes justice needs to be shoved down others’ throats. yeah, i know i kinda sounded like itsuki just then, but it’s true.

          that said personally i can’t believe people actually think this stuff up and put it to paper, i felt nothing, but then i have barely any functioning ability to change emotions. sadism is one thing, while only a milder version, it kind of runs in the family, but the stuff that happened to thos once positive schoolgirls… yikes.

Actually i heard the dude on my mom’s church that “The bad you do here, will be your punishment in hell”. Taking it like that, she used her body and her “appeal” as a “woman” to seduce and get the heroes, nobles, and even nerds on that school she went to, do the things she wanted. So if she used her body as a tool to play with other herats and driving them almost crazy, her punishment should be that get her to use her body till crazy. “You can’t take revenge on what is done, because it can’t be changued… But you can punish those who done it to prevent it from happening again”

And with her power she’ll manipulate the pig king of faubley and corrupt his entire army with darkness for her revenge tool against shield bro and his companions, melromarc and the entire world itself. If I’m the author I’ll make story plot like that and I think it would be a grand ending of the story 😊

          Well… Different world, different ethics and mentality. Like crucifixion terribly morbid now but back then people would throw stones and even jear those dying.

          Witch’s sadistic torture rape maybe cruel but the people over there must have been brushing off like it’s common. There have been 9,999 victims before her.

          Naofumi judgement maybe clouded due to his curse series (wanted to kill Ren despite him not really doing anything for that amount of rage and hate when they fought)

          Motoyatsu just sees it as a fat pig like man having a creepy beastiality fetish (or perfectly normal since pig king?)

Though you should look at the “incidental” damage she did to her own Nation and the heroes to further her own lust for power. She thought nothing of it….at all.

    I have mixed feelings about this. I have always felt that if one’s crimes are bad enough, then they deserve punishment worse than death, and should receive torture that leads to death. And Bitch most certainly deserved that.
    Yet, I somehow found myself hoping that Raphtalia would interfere, and rescue Bitch from the transportation, leading her back to Naofumi’s village, all the while testing her trustworthiness to see if she really would be able to serve Naofumi for the rest of her life. If she did, then Raphtalia would (try to) convince Naofumi to make Bitch his slave, and if not, then Raphtalia would kill her the moment she showed that she really couldn’t be trusted.
    I dunno, such mixed feelings.

    Well, I don’t advocate rape, but what happened to Bitch was her own fault, her mother tried to protect her, tried to change her for better, she even gave a punishment(a severe one) for the sake of hope that she would change, this was her own fault.

    Also all the four heroes are mentally twisted, Naofumi is a hedonist otaku, he’s amoral, sarcastic, arrogant and vengeful, he’s far from being a hero he’s a anti-hero, he was happy to turn his brother in a otaku in order to remove the stress from him and shove on his parents face that he was right.
    Ren is a loner that uses people as bait.
    Motoyasu is a lolicon.
    Itsuki is an arrogant bastard that creates trouble to fix in order to fix himself.
    All four of them are despicable human beings.

    That is pretty sickening what happened to her. And I don’t care what Kumar Samvab says, I really don’t need the details. I have a highly active imagination and can picture stuff from words easily and I don’t want that sort of stuff floating about in my mind.

    All in all, though, I’m somewhat of a softie. Personally I would have just had her level reset, her face disfigured, tongue cut out, and teeth pulled. Maybe do something to her hands so she either couldn’t write or couldn’t write well. Then afterwards, sent her to some BFE part of the country, sold her to a brothel, or let the castle guards “use” her. That’s it. None of that super sadistic shit for me.

    HAHAHAHA! This is probably my favorite chapter yet! Gotta love it when those who deserve to die, dies painfully and extremely slowly.

    This reminds me of Gaddafi as he was beaten to death by the same people he oppressed for so many years. To add insult to injury, his corpse was hanged in a refrigerated container truck while people took pictures.

    Anyways, this chapter really made my day

    Glad she’s dead, too many readers are soft. Reading some of these comments it seems the lot of you wanted Nofugami to achieve Zen and take her back home as a slave, where through the power of friendship we learn she was misunderstood and just wanted what was best for her people. Then it’s a harem ending where everyone lives happy ever after.

    Yeah right. Was Yoraikun featured on some crappy shonen website or something? Anyone who wanted her to not suffer at this point either has serious judgment issues, has serious empathy issues, or is reading the wrong genera entirely.
    Seriously, are we all reading the same story? This result has been hinted at plenty of times throughout the story, the author would have been tainting his own story to make her part end differently.

      Wholeheartedly agree with Anon. The novel’s nuance was dark from the very beginning, only to get darker and more unpleasant. I don’t see how making the punishment seem even slightly less gruesome would make much of a difference; this death is very ironic and is fiction at its purest and most dedicated. I get that to some this is crossing the boundaries of comfort, but in my humblest opinion, it’s very consistent writing and I wouldn’t keep reading otherwise.
      — and no, I’m not an advocate of S&M or anything, or of extremely cruel treatments towards women; nor am I a sadist, but I find it highly pointless to bring up my moral code and direct it towards what I’m reading. That’s turning a blind-eye to the content…which in this case is already pure fiction.

But he will happily let her be sent off to be raped, mutilated and tortured to death by some monstrous tyrant in another country? A tyrant that has tortured/raped/killed 9999 women already?
      And he wants recorded footage of the act?

      Why would he do that for the sake of the queen and princess? The queen sent her away to get raped, most likely to feel the pain and suffering she caused others. Naofumi just wanted her dead, which is why he asked for video so he could make sure was getting what she deserved(framed him for rape gets raped for punishment it was supposed to be ironic). The princess would have most likely did the same as the queen. so saving Bitch for the sake of those two would have been pointless.

  42. Oh boy…I’m afraid a nasty Japanese male predilection just reared it’s ugly head in this chapter -That being a rather sordid taste for sexual violence and sadism against women. And a dubious line was most certainly crossed here!
    As supposed ‘justice’ a woman is deliberately sent to be raped, tortured and mutilated to death by a sadistic monster who has already done the same thing to 9999 previous women (sucks to be them huh?) but it’s all okay because she was an evil villain after all? SORRY, BUT NO!
    This has destroyed Naofumi’s character for me…because he essentially condones the sadistic rape, mutilation and murder of a woman out of a base desire for revenge?
    Has he learned nothing from Raphtalia or Taniko’s story?
    The sick hypocrite even wants recorded footage of it? Is he gonna watch that around Raphtalia and his harem girls? Way to become an evil sad sack.
    A simple execution would have been justice… But this revenge punishment became a crime far worse than the evils the ‘witch princess’ herself had perpetrated – Way to sour the story! It certainly leaves a very bad taste in the mouth. Basically a morally corrupt choice, passed off as ‘justice’ then? No better than all the injustice that Naofumi himself was bitching about being subjected to back in the beginning of this story then? It just felt like a real step backwards…
    And for the creepers in the comments above who want a “detailed description” of that rape/murder scene (and appear to be ‘getting off’ on it) then I suggest crawling back into the murkier parts of the web, where you lot belong! : (

        He could have settled for her head on a block/guillotine if he wanted simple justice.
        Or even requested the right to execute her himself if his hatred and thirst for revenge was so strong! That would be a much more honest surely?
        Instead he goes along with this sickening plan for her sadistic rape, torture and murder. Which he wants recorded so he can watch later…
        Heck, he wouldn’t even let the witch escape that fate by biting her own tongue off and dying!
        So I have to conclude to myself that, indeed, he does condone it!
        Sorry for ragging on this issue. It just feels morally wrong and out of synch with the rest of the story… Especially after reading it from the beginning.
        Ah well, just my opinion though.

          That’s your idealistic, side speaking. Remaining neutral while decisions are made does not constitute a form of approval. It’s a valid political position. There’s also the fact that he was too shocked by the punishment itself to speak out about it.
          Her punishment in itself wasn’t meant to punish her, but to have her benefit the country in the end. Executing her wouldn’t replenish the treasury or restore the political relations she destroyed. And it was obvious that Bitch had no intentions of repenting for her sins.
          From a political, economical, Lex Talionial and dramatic ironical sense, her punishment was just. It went against moral standards.
          The video was needed for evidence, because you will see just how tenacious that woman is.

      • She certainly deserved a bad end – No arguing that! I was personally looking forward to it…but not this! My issue is that with this terrible deal being struck to give the witch princess as a rape/torture/murder victim to this monster of a king (who has already raped/killed 9999 women already) then an evil far greater than her own crimes is being perpetrated by the ‘supposed’ forces of justice!
        Instead of getting justice (or even a satisfying revenge) we get this lurch into something quite sick and depraved. Sick enough to even make you feel some pity for the villainous princess. Which is surely counterproductive?
        Let’s hope he doesn’t set his sights on Princess Melty eh?

          So what kind of solution do you think they should have gone with? Keep in mind that this (justifiably) said monster of a king is in charge of the biggest, strongest country in the world and probably has a majority of the other heroes in it. And because of Witch and Trash’s actions, the country as a whole is very unhappy with Melromarc.

          There’s also Witch’s exact argument before she started begging, which was that actually executing her would be a bad political move. She was very smug and sure that there was no way to permanently get rid of her without the Queen damaging herself in some way. It’s sickening, yes, but this isn’t really about justice or morality anymore-heck, all things considered, the only ones who think that in this story are newbie Heroes and short-sighted idealists like Eclaire. What matters is permanently getting rid of someone who tried to tear the country in half because she felt entitled to and appeasing the rest of the world while doing it.

          Do you have any solutions you would have gone with in the Queen’s place? Remember, you’re not allowed to kill her, she doesn’t learn her lesson from enslavement or punishments, she has supporters who may again try to break her out of imprisonment, and she has the uncanny ability of manipulating anyone she comes into contact with so political marriage to a different country won’t work either. With these restrictions, what would you do?

    Primero que nada no tengo intenciones de usar un mal ingles de un traductor automatico, asi que sere simple en cambio.

    Segundo, Yoraikun, gracias por tu trabajo. Probablemente sin ti y otros tantos no hubiera disfrutado hasta este punto una obra tan digna.

    Tercero, el final de la perra fue justo. ¿Cuando dicen que es demasiado en verdad han pensado en todo lo que ha hecho y los efectos directos e indirectos de ello? Hagan memoria de todo lo que ha hecho, meramente en el evento de la tortuga y la revolución debieron morir muchos. Agreguemos al asunto la urgencia de asegurar a la gente evitando una guerra. Y tuvo la oportunidad de ser salvada pero sus propias acciones la condenaron en cada ocasion, los otros pseudo heroes de mierda también la rechazaron. ¿No ven que ni Raphtalia siendo moralista la trato de salvar? Si hay gente que se puede salvar puedes estar completamente seguro de gente a la que no, la realidad conceptualmente es perfecta y no cae en utopia ni distopia incluso en la ficcion.

    Cuarto, los que consideran a Naofumi como malo…¿Que cosas no ha hecho el? ¿En verdad creen que sus acciones van ajustadas a sus palabras? ¿Creen eso de que el le cocina a esclavos y los trata como su familia por casualidad? Obviamente no es asi, no es inhumano ni demonio es Tsundere uno corrompido por el sufrimiento como un animal que se vuelve hostil por maltratos pero aun asi su esencia es tsundere al fin,

    Quinto y ultimo, lo que de verdad se deben preocupar es sobre la existencia de un reino asi…. Un lugar asi, un rey asi, unos nobles asi, no deben de existir. Tragedia es cuando son inocentes los que sufren, justicia es cuando son los criminales quienes sufren. ¿Han pensado en los otros juguetes?

    Por cierto, un buen ejemplo de lo que le pasa a la perra es lo que te dicen abiertamente del intercambio equivalente y el infierno en cualquier religion.

        Secondly, Yoraikun, thanks for your work. Problably without you many others wouldn’t have been able to read such amazing work.

        Thirdly, her ending was just. When did they say that what they did was aiming for the greater good, was it all true? They have in their memory everything they did, back in the turtle arc and in the revolution, many had died. There’s also the urgency of safeguarding their people to avoid a war. And when she had the oportunity to be save by her own actions they condemned her each moment. The other shit and fake heroes did the same. Didn’t they notice that Raphtalia, being the moralist she is, didn’t try to save her? If there are those who would save her then you have to accept that there are also those who wouldn’t, cuz the reality is conceptually perfect and does not fall into utopia or dystopia even in fiction.

        Fourthly, to those who consider Naofume as evil… What did he do? Do you really believe that his actions are changed by his words? Do you really believe that he cooks for his slaves and treats them as family only by accident? Obviously it’s not like that, he isn’t inhuman nor a devil, he’s a tsundered. Corrupted by his suffering, like a animal that gets angry due to mistreatments, but stil a tsunder in his essence.

        Fifthly and lastly, what you should really worry about is to the existence of a kingdom like this one… A place like this, a king like him, nobles like those, they shouldn’t exist. Tragedy is when innocents suffer, justice is when the criminals are the ones suffering. Have you thought about others games?

        Indeed, a good example is what witch is going through, the equivalency and hell, as said in any religion. ”

        It’s been a long time since I made use of my not-so-good spanish, but that’s more like what he meant to say. Also, I took the liberty of changing “dog” to “witch”, as both “dog” and “girl/chick” are translated from the same word (perra) and since all the talk was about the punishment she received….
