Fourth Prince's Debauchery-Chapter 733: The Beginning, The End [End]
Chapter 733: The Beginning, The End [End]
"Your highness, it's time to wake up." Daisy shook my body softly, forcing me to wake up.
"Already?" I opened my eyes with a sleepy expression. "Can I sleep for a bit more?"
"Your highness, you told me that you had to wake up early today, remember?"
I groaned. Right, I need to visit someone today.
Reluctantly, I left the bed, kissing Dina and Louise who were sleeping naked on the bed in the process. I then asked Daisy to help me to dress up before going for breakfast.
When I reached the living room of my mansion, I found Aunt Dayana and Aunt Sera drinking tea calmly while talking about something. They looked in my direction at the same time, and Aunt Dayana raised an eyebrow surprised.
"How unusual of you to wake up early. You normally don't wake up until noon."
"Don't make it sound so bad, aunt. You know that I stay until late every night."
"Do you think that having sex until dawn is a good reason to stay up late? Sigh, where did my hardworking nephew disappear? When did he turn into this decadent prince?"
"My beloved aunt, you stayed up late with me yesterday, remember?"
Aunt Dayana coughed with a slight blush on her face.
"A-Anyway, why are you awake so early?" She asked stutteringly.
"I need to visit someone today," I said while drinking from a cup of tea that Daisy passed to me. "I have been delaying it for a while, and I think it's a good time to give it a closure."
Aunt Dayana and Aunt Sera were startled.
"… Is it related to the battle three years ago, Claus?" Aunt Sera asked worriedly.
I smiled softly to relieve them. "Don't worry, it's not dangerous. I just want to resolve some doubts I have."
The two of them nodded.
"Just be careful."
Three years have passed since the battle against Bringer of End. And a lot has happened in the world during this time.
Dina consolidated her position as the empress, E'Athar became the empress of the daemons, and the remaining beastkin and elves surrendered to the humans and daemons after their defeat during the war.
The Imperial Institute opened its doors again, with Rose and Katherine finishing their studies and becoming teachers. The institute also started accepting people of other races under Headmistress Evelyn's suggestion, and the world entered a period of peace.
But during these three years, the only thing I have done is to accompany my women every day. We go on dates around the world, practice our abilities, and had sex every night.
You can say that it's a perfect life filled with romanticism and debauchery. Anyway, now that the world is no longer in danger, I can spend my days as I want.
But still, there is something that I have not resolved yet. I think it's a good time to do it.
After bidding farewell to my two aunts, I stepped across space, moving to the other side of the world, where a small island rested in the middle of the endless ocean.
As soon as I appeared on the island, I saw a small boy around six years old seated on the beach, looking at the waves with a dazed expression.
"… You are here." The boy said in a childlike voice as I walked towards him. "It took you longer than I expected."
"Well, I had not decided if I should kill you or spare you."
"… Are you going to kill me then?"
"I don't know. What do you think?"
The child looked at me for several seconds before moving his sight back to the waves hitting the beach.
"… Can I ask you… When did you learn about me?" The boy asked.
"I had my suspicious for a long time," I said while walking behind the boy. "I mean, it was too coincidental that I reincarnated in a world that was being targeted for two Immortals. Moreover, I just found what I was searching for in this world. It seemed like too much of a coincidence.
"However, I got the definite evidence during the battle against Bringer of End. When you talked to Rose, I confirmed that my suspicions were true."
"… I see. Right, that was a bad move. But I had no other option. You seemed to be at a disadvantage, and I knew I had to do something. I had a small hope that you would not notice anything if I used the Hero as an intermediary, but I guess it did not work, huh."
"I didn't." I nodded. "What is your name, or should I call you [Will of the World]?"
The boy did not reply immediately. He just looked at the waves as though he was an innocent child seeing the sea for the first time.
But this boy is not a normal child, but the Will of the World itself.
Normally, a Will of the World is just a vague consciousness. They only have basic instincts of survival, and they are not smarter than a three-year-old child.
But this world is different. For some reason, the Will of the World became aware of itself, and eventually, it evolved until the world became a true living being.
Even for me, it's the first time seeing something like this.
After being silent for several seconds, the boy finally spoke up.
"My name is Lenka." The boy stated. "I'm the personification of this world's will, and an Irregular. Nice to meet you, Immortal Soul Wandering Through Eternity."
"Nice to meet you, Lenka. Now, let me listen to your explanation."
"What is there to explain?" The boy smiled wryly. "As you guessed, I was the one that brought your soul into this world. My purpose was to use you to fight against [Bringer of End and Eternal Destruction] and [Queen of Timeless Distortion]."
"Why?" I asked with a frown. "You should know that no Immortal will be happy after being used like that. Once I discovered it, I was going to kill you."
"I needed a variable." The boy put on a bitter expression. "Both [Bringer of End and Eternal Destruction] and [Queen of Timeless Distortion] are immortals known for destroying worlds. Imagine my reaction when I learned that both of them had put their sights in my world.
"I was terrified. I mean, as an Irregular, I'm pretty powerful myself. But compared to these two, I'm much weaker. But I knew that if I did nothing, I was going to die.
"Just at that moment, I discovered your unconscious soul wandering through the universe.
"I had heard about you. You were just as powerful as Bringer of End and the Queen, but unlike them, you didn't have a penchant for destroying worlds. At that moment, I got a crazy idea.
"What if I use you to fight against Bringer of End and the Queen?
"I knew that my idea was crazy. I mean, even if you were not as violent as these two, you were an Immortal as well. If you discovered what I was trying to do, you would destroy me before these two could do it.
"Besides, even if I could hide my plan from you, you didn't have a reason to help me.
"Thus, I needed something. Something that could make you protect the world, and at the same time, make you spare me if you discovered everything eventually."
"Raven," I muttered to myself.
The body nodded.
"She was just one of the many special individuals I created throughout the world. You have met some of the others as well; Rose, Alice, and Anson. They were some of the hundreds of special individuals that I created.
"They had only a purpose. To catch your attention. If even one of them managed to make you interested in this world, then perhaps you would protect it of your own accord."
"And surprisingly, your plan worked, and better than you expected." I sighed softly after listening to his crazy idea.
"I'm also surprised about how well my plan worked." The boy put on a wry smile. "Even I did not expect that Raven would become so important to you. I guess I was lucky."
"Lucky, huh." I nodded to myself with a complicated expression. "Yeah, you were lucky, and I was lucky as well."
Then, I turned around to leave.
The boy let out a sigh of relief that he had been holding.
"So you are not going to kill me."
"I told you, you were lucky. Even though I'm a bit angry for being used, Raven is just that valuable to me. You allowed me to meet her, so I don't mind sparing you this once."
With these words, I disappeared from the island and returned to the capital.
The boy was really lucky. His plan was nothing but a crazy gamble. The chances of it succeeding were virtually zero.
If Raven would have not appeared in this world, then, I'm sure I would have not protected it from the Queen and Bringer of End.
But his plan succeeded, and it was the beginning of everything.
Thanks to it, I managed to accomplish my long-desired dream.
'I guess both of us were lucky, huh.' I thought to myself as I walked through the streets of the capital
At that moment, I saw two small girls fighting.
One of them was a petite fox girl with golden-red hair and red eyes. She was growling at a four-year-old black-haired girl with an enraged face.
"Witch…! You fooled dad, but don't think that you can fool me as well!"
"What are you talking about, crazy vixen?"
The four-year-old girl frowned. "Watch your language, vixen. William will be angry if he learns that you are talking to his daughter like that."
"William!? You finally revealed your tail!"
"Oops! A slip of tongue. I mean to say 'dad'."
"Bastard! I'm going to kill you!"
"You can't." The four-year-old girl giggled before running towards me with a wronged expression. "Dad, Emilia is bullying me...~"
I did not know whether to laugh or to cry.
"Little Ysnay, stop teasing Emilia." I knocked on her head as I carried her in my arms and walked towards my mansion.
When I walked past Emilia, I grabbed her hand and pulled her along.
"Let's go, to our home."
The eyes of the two girls brightened immediately.
Hey guys, Aidka's here!
It has been a long journey, filled with ups and downs and a lot of fun.
Fourth Prince's Debauchery is my first novel, and I feel a lot of love for it. I'm really happy that I managed to finish writing it, even when the release of the last one hundred chapters was a bit rocky.
I'm satisfied with the end of this novel. From the moment I started to write it, I knew that I wanted to end it like this. The end of this novel was the same that I envisioned over two years ago. I did my best to give this novel a worthy end.
As my first novel, there is a lot that I could have done better. I made a lot of mistakes, and I'm sure that I left a lot of plot holes across the story, but I did my best the entire way. I tried to give an answer to every question in the series.
About the [Queen of Timeless Distortion], she will be an important character in my following novels. She is kind of like the main antagonist of the series or the hand behind the curtains. I don't want to say much to not give spoilers, but I'm planning something amazing.
There are also some heroines whose routes are not finished. I will write some side stories about them. Around twenty or so. This way, I will give them closure.
Finally, thank you for accompanying me during this journey. Please, follow my next two stories, [Science/Magic] and [Hey, Why are My Skills so Weird!?]. I will resume their releases on March 10. I hope you support me as you supported me with Fourth Prince.
Thank you to all my [email protected] Thanks to you, I managed to finish this story even when I was passing through some hard times.
Love, Aidka :P
