Time flies by so fast.
I was caught by the other guards as soon as I got back to the royal castle, assigned to the daily routine-like tasks, and finally it was time for the social hour at 5pm.

I yawn, biting back a yawn.
Well, that can’t be helped.
Because I was up all night yesterday, working on the level up until morning.
And I was risking my life.

Why doesn’t everyone level up? I used to wonder why people didn’t level up before I tried it.
but now I understand that in a peaceful world where the existence of the demon king’s army has not yet been revealed, it’s probably not something to go to the trouble of crossing the line of death for.

“Man, it’s gorgeous.”

In one of the rooms of the royal castle, a large chandelier hung in the hall that served as the venue for social gatherings, a beautifully arranged meal was served beneath it, and beside it, a large number of people who appeared to be VIPs from various countries were chatting with each other with beautiful glasses in their hands.

Well, let’s reconfirm today’s plan in my mind.
What to do when the Demon King’s army attacks today.
It’s called [I will be an honorably wounded soldier! It’s an operation.

First, when the gargoyles, the Demon King’s army, attack, I will deal with a few of them and manage to defeat them.
If I have to deal with several gargoyles, even though I’ve reached level 19, I won’t be able to do so unscathed.

But that’s okay.
I use my wounds as an excuse to yell, “Damn, I didn’t think I’d get hit in a place like this! and pretend to be knocked out as if I had just got beaten in a fight.

Yes, I would have an excuse later, even if I was the only survivor in the venue, if I pretended that I had fought desperately but unfortunately ran out of strength in the middle of the battle and fell unconscious.
Besides, I might be honored as a guard who bravely stood up to the demon king’s army.

I had just been reincarnated, but I didn’t want to die in a place like this right after that.
I’m going to survive today somehow, leave the defeat of the Demon King to the hero, the heroic hero who will appear after this event, and I’m going to spend every day in peace and quiet!

“Oh, at last.”

The moment came.
Princess Leia entered the venue, being led by her hand by a maid of honor.
The conversation in the hall suddenly stopped at the sight of her beautiful figure.
Everyone was just gawking at her.

Princess Leia stood next to the stage at the far end of the hall, and the king went up to the platform first.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to thank you all for coming.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my daughter, Leia, to you–….”

Just as the king began to address the audience, there was a loud crash! A loud glass shattering sound echoed through the hall.


A scream rose from among the guests.
Gargoyles, minions of the Demon King’s army, had broken a large window in the hall.

–Let’s kill them all!

–Do not kill the princess! We need her alive!

–Giggle, giggle, giggle!

With a sickening laugh, the gargoyles fly through the air, ripping people apart indiscriminately with their claws.


The attendees of the social gatherings from various countries fall, spurting out blood.
The gargoyles were laughing as they killed the unarmed people.


I clicked my tongue at the sheer brutality of it all.
But, be cool, me.
The number of gargoyles exceeds 20 as far as the eye can see.
We can’t possibly take on such a large number.

“Hey, Gustav!”

“Yes, sir?”

“We’re going to secure the exit of the hall! The king and the princess were protected by another group.
We’ll evacuate the guests from the ballroom!”

The bearded old guard said and started to run, and I ran after him.

“Gustav, you were right yesterday when you said …… gwah?”

“Oh, Ossan!”

The gargoyle suddenly glided up from the side and slashed him across the neck.
Ossan was suddenly slashed in the neck by a gargoyle that came gliding down from the side.
Blood was flying everywhere.

“Damn it, damn it!”

The guards were all killed at this venue.
That was a given from the actual game, but to actually see them killed in front of your eyes –is just too disgusting!

“Is that okay? I’m really just going to leave myself like this ……”

But there was no time to think.
The gargoyle attacked me from my side as well.

–Gah gah gah! I’ll skewer you and hang you from the chandelier!

“Gargoyle ……!”

I quickly prepared myself to intercept the gargoyle.

“Here we go!”

–What? gah!

My spear pierces the gargoyle’s belly with blinding speed, using the skill “Shippu-tsuki,” which was enhanced by last night’s level-up.

“Not yet!”

I continued with the skill “Strike Down”.
With the unbladed end of the spear, I slam the gargoyle’s body into the ground.
The body fell to the ground.
Without a pause, he stabbed the gargoyle in the head with the spear.

“I can beat you…!”

After a full workout yesterday, I could get a feel for the level of my opponent.
The gargoyle I just defeated was probably lvl 12 or 13, and I could probably take down one or two of them without any trouble.

–Hey, it looks like that soldier over there is pretty good!

–It’s going to take a few of us to take them down!

–Gah, gah, gah!

Three gargoyles are coming at me.

Three gargoyles, just the right number to carry out the plan.
I’m sure I won’t get away unscathed, but it’s a number I can manage to beat.
I was determined and attacked them.
