I, The Immortal Soul (1)
“Princess, your food.”
“Thank you.” Princess E’Athar received the food from a soldier and thanked him with a smile.
But as soon as the soldier left, her expression turned bitter.
“Dammit, what is with this? Is it supposed to be food?”
I erased the hiding technique I was using to hide from the soldier and chuckled.
“What is the problem? It’s normal to eat military rations during a war.”
“I know that, but I’m a princess, okay? I’m sure that the General is not eating this crap!”
I shrugged, agreeing with her words.
I mean, although the human soldiers have been eating military rations, my status as prince means I have been eating quality food even here. E’Athar, as a princess, should be the same.
The fact that she is only eating military rations means that the Daemon General is messing with her.
“Come on, let me help you.”
Shaking my head, I grabbed her military rations and make them float in the air. At the same time, I extended my hand, piercing space, and grabbing some ingredients from the place where I am staying.
Then, I extended my hand through space again to find a pot before snapping my fingers and creating a small flame in the room.
After that, I cut the ingredients and the military rations, before using the flames to cook, roast, and boil them.
In five minutes, and under the frozen and astonished gaze of the daemon princess, a succulent banquet had appeared in front of her.
“What? Is it your first time seeing a man cooking?”
“What kind of cooking was that? And you are a prince! Why someone like you know how to cook!?”
“I just know. Eat it now before it turns cold.”
E’Athar looked at me suspiciously, wondering if I have put something in the food. But in the end, she was unable to resist the appetizing smell of a hot meal.
Before long, she was eating the food I prepared with relish.
“… So good! Hey, why don’t you become my personal chef?”
“I’m sorry, I prefer to become your husband.”
“Bah. Dream on. I’ll never marry someone as shameless as you?”
“Really?” I asked with a small smile.
Princess E’Athar blushed and looked away embarrassedly.
“Okay, okay, I’ll stop teasing you,” I said with a chuckle. “You remember what you need to do tomorrow, right?”
“I do, don’t worry. But…”
“No, it’s nothing.” Princess E’Athar shook her head with a bitter smile. She then looked at me with a serious expression. “Be careful, okay? Don’t underestimate the general and the others.”
“Oh?” I could not help but put on an amused expression. “Are you worried about me?”
“Of course not! It’s just that if you die the plan will fail.”
Yes, yes, I believe you.
What a tsundere.
I chuckled at the obvious lie of the princess and stood up.
“I should leave already. See you tomorrow, Princess.”
Princess E’Athar was startled.
“Are you leaving already? So soon?”
“I do. There is something I need to do after this.”
“Is it so?” Princess E’Athar put on a slightly disappointed expression and nodded. “Good luck then.”
“Thanks. Right, are you not going to give me a kiss before I leave?”
I chuckled and stepped across space, leaving the daemon princess’s tent as I laughed.
As I thought, teasing her is fun.
I would have like to spend a bit more time teasing her, but unfortunately, I need to do something important after this.
With a sigh, I appeared in the capital of the empire.
But I did not go to the palace or my mansion this time. Instead, I went towards the church.
Once I arrived, I extended my senses, quickly locating the person I was searching for.
Fortunately, she was in her room, so I could meet her immediately.
Stepping across space again, I appeared in her room.
Then, I looked at the back of the black-haired young woman wearing a white habit as she prayed, and smiled gently.
“Long time no see you, Sister Safelia.”
Safelia jumped in surprise and turned around hurriedly.
“M-Master? What are you doing here? C-Could it be, y-you c-came for that…?”
I was speechless. Does this girl think I only think about sex?
What kind of sex maniac do you think I am?
Yeah, I should punish her for it later.
“I came for a different reason this time, Safelia.” I shook my head with a wry smile. “I need your help with something?”
“My help?” Safelia was confused, but she did not refuse.
After all, since she decided to accept me as her master, she was prepared to follow all my orders.
“What do I need to do?”
“Nothing much. I just want to use a technique on you.”
Safelia put on a surprised expression before falling silent.
“… Will it be dangerous?”
I did not reply immediately.
To be honest, I can lie here and tell her that it will not. However, this technique is related to the future of both of us. A future that can last for hundreds of thousands of years.
I don’t want to lie to her about it.
Thus, I smiled wryly and nodded. “It will. However, I will do my best to keep you safe.”
“I see…” Safelia looked at me with a complicated expression before heaving a sigh. “Can I at least to know what kind of technique it is?”
“… It’s related to our souls. If it’s successful, then you will be unable to be separated from me, forever.”
“That is not much different from now…”
“No, you don’t understand. If you agree, we will be together for eternity. Forever. You will be unable to escape from me even in death.”
Safelia’s expression changed, and her eyes opened slightly wide.
But after several seconds, she smiled and nodded.
“Master, I promised you that I would be your slave in both body and soul. I don’t plan to go back on my words.”
A smile immediately appeared on my lips.
“Is it so? I’ll not disappoint you then.”
Then, I bit my finger, causing a drop of blood to leak out.
But instead of falling to the ground, the drop of blood hovered over my finger silently before turning into a beautiful and complicated tridimensional magic array.
At that moment, I put on a serious expression and spoke up.
“I, [The Immortal Soul Wandering Through Eternity], with the Universe’s Laws as the witness, declare today.
“From today onward, we will be one, and our souls will not be separated ever again!”
And the world trembled in answer.
