V1-C2-E1 (One Earnest Desire of Procuring new recruit)
“Akira, I’ve secured personnel that you’ve requested!’
After two days passed, her majesty brought newcomer with her. As expected of her.
There were three new members of the logistic department.
It was obvious that all of them would be non-human. But there was one thing that was unexpected.
“Thank you, your majesty.”
“Don’t worry about it. Now then. Shall we introduce each other.”
Like that, the three people who will become the executive of the future logistic department start introducing themselves.
It reminds me of the beginning of a class semester.
“Yes~, I’m an Elf, My name is Eri de Riedel. I came from the commerce guild, ‘Oriel’. I do have a lot of experience doing various office work, but personally, I think there are a lot of things that I do not know as well. That’s why I might inconvenience you for a while. Please give me your guidance and encouragement, Director.”
The first one who introduces themselves was an Elf.
She had long ears and long blonde hair, just like the one in the manga. Coupled with her slow gentle voice, she was a very Onee-chan like.
She was a woman who was likely to have a broad mindedness, just like her breast.
A woman who was likely to have a huge capacity, just like her breasts.
A woman who had a wide tolerance, just like her breasts.
“It is fine. Since the work here is just started, you can take it easy, De Riedel-san.”
“Thank you very much. Ah, please do call me Eri instead Since De Riedel feels very stiff…”
“Very well then, Eri-san.”
If she had such extensive office work, then the next logistic department Director might be her. For the time being, the seat of deputy Director should be good for her. Ability, Personality, and Appearance, none of them show any problem.
… Though I was curious about her age as an Elf, as expected, it would be rude of me to ask a woman about that. At least, she should be more than 200 years.
“I’m Yurie, I do not have a surname. I came from Workshop called ‘Galleria’, pleased to meet you, Director.”
“Director? What’s wrong? Is there something on my face?”
“No, well, I’m wondering why there’s a child here…”
“How rude! I’m 22 years old this year you know?!”
The second person was a person half the height of Eri.
The person had brown skin and black hair. Because she came from the workshop, she wore a bandana on her head just like workshop worker.
Her Majesty said she was from a small tribe called “Half Ling”.
Their lifespan was the same as Humans. And because of that, it was right to call her adult, since she was already 22 years old.
“I’m sorry. This is the first time I see a Half Ling.”
“Fun~. Please be careful next time!”
By the way, Yurie was a woman. She was a brown loli Orekko. <TLN: Orekko, someone who use Ore to refer themselves, rather than the feminine counterpart, Atashi, or the gender-neutral, Watashi.>
“… E-Emm, I, I’m from the second research institute of the capital city. My name is R-Rina Suomi. Previously I worked in the laboratory library… P-Please to meet you, Director-sama…”
“… O-Oh, Yes, Pleased to meet you. Rina-san.”
“Eh? Ah, I’m sorry. For calling your name like that!”
“N-No, It is fine… S-Since Suomi is a common surname…”
The last one seems to have a communication problem… Or rather, she was a woman with a bit of extreme shyness.
She looked cute when nervous though…
Sofia-san intimidating aura was released from behind.
Did she read my heart again? Furthermore, from behind?
“Rina-san, may I ask you a question?”
Sofia-san then began to speak.
“W-What is it?”
“First, let me apologize if it is a mistake. It’s about your race, are you a succubus?”
You meant, ‘that’ succubus?
No way–… Succubus was the one who feeds on human semen, no?
Looking at her nodding her head while looking shy, eeeh~, was it fine to have that kind of personality and being a succubus?
Certainly, Rina-san had small feathered wings on her back, and also a tail, but I thought she was a devil.
To think she was a succubus, how unexpected.
Being succubus aside, she looked like a normal shy girl.
“… I-Is that so… Then, Rina-san. Once again, please to meet you.”
“… Yes, pleased to meet you too…”
Rina’s reply was so low that her voice was almost drowned by the sound of the surrounding. I wonder if all the succubus were like her.
Let us check about it later.
“Alright then, the self-introduction is over!”
Her Majesty who didn’t read the mood said those words while looking satisfied.
It was a secret that I thought the job of a Demon Lord was a very easygoing one. Anyway, there was something I like to ask from the start.
“Emm, Your Majesty. May I ask something?”
“What is it, Akira. Do you find something dissatisfied?”
“No, that is not it. But in a sense, that is right as well…”
“What are you trying to say? Stop being a roundabout.”
No, it was not a big deal.
But I must ask the question that everyone must’ve feel concerned about. As the Director of the Logistic Department, I have to ask, though I have no complaint about it.
“Err, why all of them are women?”
Isn’t that strange? Since there were three people, I thought at least one of them would be a man.
And since I was a man, I thought it would be easier for me if my colleague were men too. That was how logically should go.
“… Are you dissatisfied with it? I thought you would be happy. Perhaps, you’re homosexual–?”
“WRONG! I do love women…”
In this world, homosexual seems to have existed, although they were in the minority.
But, I’m a normal healthy man, who loves women just like the majority. Of course, I would feel happy to be surrounded by beautiful ladies.
“Then there’s no problem isn’t there? We do have polygamy system. isn’t that great?! In fact, you should thank me with all of your heart content.”
“That is not the problem!”
Damn it, though somehow I feel happy about it, still, that was not the problem here…
But then, I’m happy, since I’m in the end a man!
“Your Majesty, that is not something you have to pay attention to! As long they are good at work it should be good enough…”
“In other words, it’s fine to gather all women?”
“Like I said, that’s not it!”
“Hnn? Ah, I see… they are not your type is it? Sorry about that, it was my fault that I didn’t grasp your preferences first…”
“How did you arrive at such conclusion?! Wrong!”
Having all of my colleagues being women, it would be hard for me to work you know?
If I’m the only man, I might find myself in trouble one of these days.
Since in the future we’re going to increase the number of people, it would be a trouble if all of them were women too.
When in Japan, I never thought about such a thing since we do struggle just to keep ourselves afloat.
“From now on, the number of personnel would increase, so it would be a trouble if there’s no man other than me!”
“Not because you want them?”
“Of course I do too!”
“I see, so that is how it is… I understand.”
“Are you really understand?”
It seems she finally understood the desperate persuasion of mine.
After entering sage mode as I calmed down, I was actually wondered why I desperately tried to persuade Her Majesty.
“I see… Then, let us change one among them with a man—”
“No, they are fine. Since you’ve gone with all the trouble of bringing them here, I won’t bother to change them.”
“Hnn? I see I guess you’re right…”
After all, in the end, I’m still a man.
But, after that, I could hear Sofia-san sigh from behind.
Please don’t read my mind!
