Orc Hero Story - Discovery Chronicles - Chapter 32.3
Frizcop: I realized that I would be a very bad person if I left you with such a cliffhanger. Next chapter this monday.
But this happiness came to an end one day. As husband, the orc man was walking through the village with the wind at his back, as usual, when he noticed a strange sensation. The people who had been treating him normally were now treating him with surprise, mockery, reserve, and contempt, as if he were a monkey with a painted face. The man wondered and asked one of his friends, who, with a somber look, brought out a well-polished mirror.
When the orc looked into the mirror, he saw a familiar face. But there was something strange on the man’s forehead. No, he had seen it before. If anything, he had pointed at it, laughed at it, mocked it, even scorned it. The moment he realized it was on him, the man’s blood drained from his face in fear. It was the mark of an orc wizard.
The mark of a magical warrior. The emblem of virginity protruded from the man’s forehead.
That day was his 30th birthday.
No one knew where the man and his succubus wife went after that. In Orc society, it was considered shameful for an ordinary warrior to become a magical warrior. No matter what the circumstances… So he probably left the village and died somewhere because he could no longer bear it.
The story would be told to the orcs for a long time. For some reason, no matter how much sex you had with a succubus, it didn’t mean you lost your virginity. On the contrary, once you lose your virginity to a succubus, no matter how many other people you sleep with afterwards, the emblem of virginity will still appear on your body.
Then Bash decided not to woo Carrot. If Bash wanted a one-night stand, he was sure she would be happy to oblige. But that would mean the end of Bash the warrior and the beginning of Bash the magical warrior. For Bash, it would be the end of the world.
“Ironic, isn’t it? I, the strongest succubus soldier, and you, the invincible Orc Hero, have defeated all enemies and eaten the fruits of victory, and now we have to be ogled by our opponents in a place like this…”
On the other hand, Carrot didn’t get any closer to Bash than necessary. She did not put her arms around him, or press her breasts against him, or whisper in his ear. Succubi could consume all men for food. But for that very reason, their culture considered it disrespectful to consider respectable men as food.
“Wartime was a good time. I could get a man of my choice and eat him as much as I wanted… now I’m like a rat scavenging for scraps…”
“I want to go back to those days, to those days when we were free to live and die, even if it was hard and painful… don’t you think?”
Bash did not answer. If all treaties were broken and war broke out right now, Bash would easily lose his virginity. He would probably go after Judith, whom he met in the human country, and enjoy his life to the fullest. But this was just a dream and nothing more. The Orc King Nemesis wanted peace and the survival of the Orc race. If war broke out at this time, the orcs would be easily destroyed. Bash could not wish for that.
“Heh, just kidding…”
“But if we ever have the chance to fight together, would you give me the honor to fight shoulder to shoulder with you again?”
These words reminded him of a battle that once took place. The Battle of Retreat in the Lehner Desert.
In this battle, the succubus army was cornered. The Lehner Desert was now part of the beastmen’s territory, but it had once been the lizardmen who lived on its sandy soil. The battle that led to the loss of this territory was an invasion by a mixed army of dwarves and humans. The succubi, who had fought alongside the lizardmen, fought to the death to protect their people. However, most lizardmen, who lived in swampy areas, did not like deserts very much. Succubi were also not good at fighting in deserts where they could be easily seen. Originally, a mixed force of ogres and harpies was supposed to defend the Lehner Desert, but after the death of Gediguz, both races had their hands full defending their own territories and retreated. They took advantage of the situation.
The orcs came to the aid of the lizardmen and succubi, who were being pursued by the elves. However, the front line had already collapsed, and the mixed forces of lizardmen and succubi in the sands were completely surrounded and in danger of being destroyed. The battle until they abandoned the Lehner Desert and retreated… that was the Battle of the Lehner Desert Retreat.
In that battle, Bash showed his usual valor and saved the succubi and the lizardmen. And it was the woman before him who commanded the succubus army at the time.
Bash remembered it well. After the fierce battle was over, there was still someone at his side, and it was her. Few words were exchanged. Two or three at most. He didn’t even remember them. But on the battlefield Bash remembered as a fierce battle, there were few people who stayed by his side until the end. Most couldn’t keep up with him and dropped out, got lost, or died in the battle. If you could keep up with Bash, it meant that you were a top-class warrior who had a lot of power and could be counted on. That’s why he remembered her so well. And he also remembered her breasts that swayed with every fight, but Bash shook off the memory of them. It was something he shouldn’t remember now. At least, if he was going to remember it, it would have to be after he had lost his virginity, then surely he could have a relationship where they both won.
“Of course, I’ll ask you the same thing then.”
“…Hehe, thank you…”
Carrot smiled. Most of her face was hidden, so he couldn’t see it, but he could tell that it was a beautiful and charming smile. If he hadn’t known that Carrot was a succubus, Bash would have proposed to her. Succubi always gave off pheromones. Pheromones that attracted and fascinated men. But even Bash could put on the brakes if he knew that was the case.
“You were brave. I still remember. Gordorov, the fierce dwarf warlord, came at you from the flank, and while everyone thought you were doomed, and the succubi and lizardmen screamed in terror and panic, you alone intercepted him calmly.”
“And you did not run away.”
“Hehehe, I am honored by your praise… but the truth is that I was just like everyone else. I wanted to run away and not stop, I was so scared. I just didn’t show it because I decided to be responsible…”
For a while, Bash and Carrot reminisced about their war years. At first, Bash was nervous about being asked about his history with women, but gradually he began to talk about his exploits and battles more eloquently than ever, even in the bars of his homeland. Carrot was very easy to talk to. She drank comfortably and talked comfortably. If this woman wasn’t a succubus… in fact, if he wasn’t a virgin, he would have jumped on her right away. Even if he was nothing but food for her. He wanted to be with her all the time, he understood that. If a human prostitute had seen her, she would have understood that it was a trick to make him feel that way, but it was impossible for a virgin to understand. By the way, Zell was sleeping at the bar table with her nemesis, Almond, in good company. They’d fought, beaten each other at the river, and now they were sweethearts. What about the Peanut? The magic was over.
“There’s a lot to talk about, but let’s leave it at that.”
If Carrot had really wanted to flatter Bash, she wouldn’t have said that. She would have leaned over Bash’s shoulder, pressed her breasts against his arm, and told him with wet eyes that she was drunk. She would have whispered something that would have made Bash want to take her home, and she would have caught him.
Or, if Bash wasn’t a virgin, he would have said a few words himself to take Carrot. Succubi couldn’t have children, but that was that, this was this, what was the point of not sleeping with a woman who was willing?
“Hehe, some other time then.”
But it didn’t happen. Carrot remained an educated succubus to the end, and Bash remained a virgin.
Bash took his leave, his nose perked up by Carrot’s sweet, lingering scent, and his hair bristling from the conversation with the woman he had enjoyed so much.
