Chapter 3 Part 2


“You’re working as a servant?”

“Yes, that’s right. Oh, the job is called Housemaid in this world. Does the maid uniform suit me?”

When Lilith came back, she smiled and twirled around once in front of me, as if to show how proud she was of her clothes.

A dark green apron dress, closer to black.

No, it would be better to call it a maid uniform, if that’s what this age calls it.

“Yes. Well, it looks good on you”

“Fufufu. I’m glad to hear that. Then I’ll start preparing dinner right away”

“Please do so. Oh, and…”


“…I finally understand why you use colored contact lenses to hide the color of your eyes”

“Is that so?”

At first, I thought it was just to hide the fact that she is a demon, but in reality, it had a completely different goal.

I checked the books in the library and found out clearly.

In this world, the <<Amber Eyes>> is an object of ridicule, and it’s no laughing matter. 

The reactions of the rich kids of the nobility just now were nothing special.

In this day and age, people with <<Amber Eyes>> often find it difficult to live their lives, albeit in a different way than it was in the past.

“In the last 200 years, the demon race has lost most of their power”

Lilith spun out the words as she cooked.

I silently turned over the pages of a book I took from the library.

“The Hero party led by Abel-sama subjugated the Demon King. After that, in various places, humans waged war against the remnants of the demon race, and…in the end, the humans won”

“Is that so”

“Yes, and the demons were destroyed. With the demons destroyed, the world was at peace and the standards of magicians declined. In the end…”

“The fact that no one fears the amber eyes anymore, and that if you train them, you’ll have the strongest power is all just history now, huh?”

“As expected of Abel-sama. You’re right”

The sound of a kitchen knife hitting a cutting board and the gentle crackling of firewood burning in the fireplace could be heard.

Strangely, it was a quiet conversation.

“…Lilith. You…do you hate humans? No…I should ask, do you hate us?” 

The destruction of the demon race definitely began due to our battle.

That day…that time…the Demon King and us battled…. In other words, her father….

“Let me see. There were days where I hated them and there were days where I cried”

The sound of chopping stopped.

I didn’t check as I was reading, but I could clearly feel Lilith’s gaze from the kitchen.

“But Abel-sama, you did your best to protect me, didn’t you? After that, we traveled together to find a place where I could live safely. Do you still remember that?”


“It was a short time. Just about half a month. But during that time, Abel-sama taught me how to use magic and the laws of human cities…and many more things”

“Don’t dawdle. You used to be so open and honest with me”

“Fufu. A good woman wears her secrets like earrings. The proprietress at the bar that hired me once taught me this”

Lilith has become strangely seductive for the last 200 years. 

Seriously, she used to be such an honest and adorable little girl.

“That’s why…”

Lilith approached me.

Then she got down on one knee and looked at me in the face.

“I truly adore Abel-sama from the bottom of my heart”

At any rate, our faces are too close to each other.

I was starting to feel somewhat embarrassed, so I decided to cover the lower half of my face with the book in my hand.

“Is that so”

When I think about it, Lilith had waited for me for 200 years to reincarnate, and she even provided me a comfortable environment to live out my life.

Even though she felt indebted to me for saving her life, she couldn’t have done all of that with just half-hearted feelings.

“…Thank you”

So I decided to murmur that.

As I thought, it’s embarrassing to express my feelings.

Unable to endure the embarrassment any further, I decided to immerse myself in the world of books without making eye contact with Lilith.


An hour later.

Somehow, I ended up taking a bath with Lilith.

First of all, let me explain here, this was not something I did of my own volition. 

Lilith forced me to come.

It is no exaggeration to say that I was practically abducted.

“…I’m sorry. My love for Abel-sama exploded during our earlier exchange”


I see. I understand now. 

She is suffering from a strange disease that forcibly kidnaps others into the bathroom when their love explodes.

Unfortunately, I don’t think my recovery magic will be able to cure Lilith’s disease.

“Good grief…. A man and woman alone naked in a bathtub. Do you even know what this situation is?”

“Fufufu. Abel-sama said something interesting”

Lilith giggles without seeming particularly embarrassed.

“With all due respect, Abel-sama. It’s not at all convincing to hear that from a man with a child’s body who may or may not be…experienced” 


She had hit me where it hurts.

It’s true that I have a child’s body now, with no attraction to the opposite sex.

In contrast to me, Lilith’s body has developed in various areas over the last 200 years.

I didn’t know that….

A woman’s breasts will float in the water when it reaches a certain size.

What a day.

In my previous life, when I was in my late thirties, she was a little kid, no older than five, but now the tables have turned, huh?

“…I’m happy. Because I’ve been able to make Abel-sama, of all people, think of me as a woman”

said Lilith as she hugged me in the bathtub, squeezing my body.

Good grief.

This woman underestimates too much of a man’s sex drive.

In fact, children around this age can have a higher sex drive than adults.

But still, I’m at a loss.

I can’t stand being beaten, no matter what it is.

It can’t be helped.

After I get out of the bath, I’m going to put my pride as a man on the line and fight back a little.


If you listen carefully, you could hear the chirping insects of the night.

That night, I held Lilith in my arms.

To tell the truth, I was not interested in anything other than ‘getting strong’ in my previous life, so I had never held a woman before.

Maybe this is what it means to be happy?

The night I held Lilith in my arms, I felt far calmer than usual and was able to have a peaceful sleep.
