Orc Hero Story
Chapter 46. The Succubus Queen
Curly Kale, the “Succubus Queen,” was one of the most bewitching succubi. For a succubus, being bewitching meant being a woman who was a veteran heroine. Before she became queen, her thunderous name was known throughout the world as the “Succubus Princess”. Her former nickname was Curly, the Boner. She was so named because she sucked men until they were nothing but bones and skin, and pulled out the spines of women.
She was such a woman, but her actual appearance was different than during the war. She had large breasts, huge buttocks, and scars over her eyes and cleavage. These were still intact, but she had a large burn scar from her collarbone to her chest. It was a scar like a tree branch, an electric shock wound.
She had been defeated by Thunder Sonia in the final battle between elves and succubi. Though she survived, her body was badly scarred and one of her legs was permanently injured.
After the war, she decided to step down as queen, but all of her successors were dead and there was no one to serve as queen, so she continued to reign to this day.
Just a few days ago, she received a formal letter of protest from the Beastmen Country. The attack by Carrot, the former general of the Succubus Nation, and the subsequent withering of the Sacred Tree. Was her action a consensus of the Succubus Nation or not? If so, they would not hesitate to go to war… The letter of protest, with such a few sentences, surprised Curly Kale.
They had had no contact with Carrot for almost a year. Worried that she might be injured or sick somewhere, she decided to send out a search party, even though she knew that other countries would criticize her.
On the one hand, she wondered why she was doing this, but on the other hand, a part of her was convinced that she was right.
She had been put through a lot of hardship. She had been left with all the foreign negotiations. Carrot didn’t want to talk too much about what had happened there, but it was clear how she had been treated. Still, she didn’t show it in front of Curly Kale, just apologized to her for not succeeding.
Carrot cared about the succubus race more than anyone else. She was a very reliable person, but she was also prone to melancholy. Curly Kale feared that she might explode with despair at any moment.
So she said, “Oh, I see.”
Then Curly Kale stopped to think about Carrot’s behavior beyond that. If she, the proudest succubus of all, had exploded, any other succubus would have ended up the same way. Neither Curly Kale nor the people of the Succubus Nation had the right to blame her.
It was not the way they had been treated that those left behind should think about. But because of her actions, the Succubus Nation was now under suspicion. If what she had done was true, a war with the Beastmen was very possible.
The Succubi, as they were now, did not have the strength to go to war with another country. If they fought, they would surely be defeated, and they would surely be slaughtered, even their babies. Extermination. Extinction. The succubus race was greatly hated.
For the survival of this country and the succubus race, she could not be wrong in her response. So she immediately sent a letter of apology. Carrot had disappeared and had nothing to do with her country’s intentions. If she returned, we’ll put a rope around her neck and hand her over. She thought how ungrateful this was to Carrot, who had worked so hard for the good of the country…
The reply to the letter of apology had not yet arrived. What if this letter was a false accusation from the Beastmen and they were just trying to start a war so suddenly, what should she do? Could she protect her people…? Curly Kale’s mind kept running through these thoughts.
Curly Kale was a warrior queen. A warrior better at war than diplomacy. But she had to do the best she could.
It was one disaster after another. Lately, in addition to these events and chronic food shortages, it had rained. The city was protected by barriers, so they didn’t have to worry about flooding, but the day would come when the production of “fodder” could no longer be sustained. At the same time, they received a letter from Nazar offering to send them new food, which pleased her, but she wondered how much she could trust him…
As these troubled days continued, something worse happened. The fairies attacked.
“Uooooh! Misteeer! Where’s Mister Bash? Succubi, if you’re hiding him, you’re in big trouble! No matter how good Mister is, there are some things you can do and some things you can’t! Kidnapping and imprisoning the Orc Hero and sucking him dry is the height of dishonesty! Even if Mister Bash was happy about it, I, Zell, won’t allow it! Come on! Bring him in now! Or I’ll kill you all! Mister, Misteeer! Answer me, Misteeer!”
When the attacking fairy was brought before Curly Kale, she was wrapped in a bamboo screen. She was the famous fairy: “Zell the Deceitful.”
Of course, she wasn’t famous for being a liar. This fairy was the companion of Bash, the orc hero to whom the succubi owed a great debt of gratitude.
However, it was still not very clear why this fairy was here. She said that Bash had fallen into the river, or that he could come here, or that the succubi had captured him, or something else she could not understand.
Normally, she would have replied, “Don’t underestimate the proud succubi”. Succubi were a race that valued gratitude above all else. No one would be foolish enough to treat Bash as food, let alone deprive him of his freedom. If they had found him, they would have told the queen immediately and welcomed him as an honored guest.
…That’s what she’d like to say, but it was true that the Succubus Nation was in shambles. Everyone was starving, and the entire race was losing its pride. It was a shameful thing, but one could never be sure that it wouldn’t happen.
Of course, it was supposed to be impossible. If anyone in the Succubus Nation was foolish enough to charm Bash, kidnap him, imprison him, and feed on him, they could not allow it. They had to be publicly executed in the Queen’s name.
“Nio, I know you don’t think it’s possible, but at least investigate. Also, be sure to inform the border guards.”
So she had her entourage secretly investigate the country. At this point, however, Curly Kale was optimistic. First of all, there was no reason for Bash to come to this area. It was probably that fairy’s prank…
Some might scoff at this judgment as naive, but that was the way things were. A fairy suddenly bursting in and shouting things, you had to assume it was a lie or a prank. A long history proved it.
Two days passed, and she received a report from her assistant saying, “I checked for suspicious persons, but everything was clean”. She was furious. After all, it was a lie from the fairy, and she could show her no mercy just because she was Sir Bash’s former companion. She would tear off her limbs and make an example of her…
“Your Majesty. It seems that the border guard, Venus, has spotted Sir Bash and is on her way here.
The report came in.
