Chapter 89 – Intermission (Princess) ②

For how long, I wonder….

I might have been underestimating Earth, who was always on equal footing with me, no, who was pulling everyone as our leader when I was young.

Among us childhood friends, Earth did not have unrivaled growth rate or special talent like Rebal and Fu.

Earth himself seemed to be aware of that when he entered the Academy, he didn’t talk about his dreams like he used to, and was somewhat sulky.

I was strict with Earth, telling him that “This is not good enough for the man who will become my husband and the next Emperor of this country ” and “Make Earth a better man”, trying to fulfill my duty as a “fiancé”.

In fact, I wanted to go on dates like couples of my age do without worrying about the public eye, but I had to restrain myself and endure it until Earth became man enough to not complain to anyone.

Occasionally, there might have been girls trying to woo Earth, but erm, well, that was, umm.

At the very least, until I graduated from the Academy… that’s what I thought. But Earth was also a boy. The information from Sadiz also confirmed that he was in possession of a smutty book. If Earth couldn’t bear it, well, I was prepared to go anytime, but in the end Earth never came on to me.

That’s why I sometimes felt anxious.

Doesn’t Earth want to make progress with me? Huh?

Because of that anxiety, when I learned that Earth was trying to beat me and win the match and confess to something, I was so happy that I could ascend to heaven.

And when Earth wielded enough power to overwhelm Rebal, I was astonished, but at the same time thrilled.

The charm of Earth as a man exceeded my tolerance, and I was so aroused that I wanted him to embrace me immediately.

However, Earth ran away from me who was in such a dreamy state.

I have no idea why. He hit Lord Hiro, despaired over something, and, according to hearsay, wielded the power of the once-destroyed Great Demon King.

I was always with him at the academy and had many a mock battle with Earth.

I know the power of Earth better than anyone else in the world, even better than Sadiz. Even I didn’t know the power that Earth wielded.

It was clear that something was happening to Earth without my knowledge.

However, no matter how much I think about it, I couldn’t understand it.

That’s why I’m on the chase for him.

No matter what kind of wife I become, I will not be a woman who just sits still.

“Phianse… No….. Princess. Leave it up to us to track Earth down.”

“What did you say, Lady Mamu? As a wife, would you leave your husband if he ran from home?”

“That… yeah…… me, Hiro and His Majesty… if it really did happen someday. We were talking about our dreams…. but…… that was our wish…. and we were ignoring Earth’s feelings. And we…”


“To you… I’m really sorry… we’ve done something that gave you strange expectations….”

Really. I’ve even made my future mother this concerned for me.

In other words, in the current situation where Earth has done various things and has been cursed by the people of the Imperial City, it would be difficult for Earth to become my husband, and it was rather difficult to let me do this out of concern for the trouble he would cause me…

“You needn’t say a word, Lady Mamu.”


“Certainly… I didn’t know about Earth… my life’s greatest failure as far as I’m concerned.”

Why did Earth do this? What happened to Earth?

However, even if I worry about it, I won’t get an answer by dwelling on it, so it’s no use thinking about it now.

“But if I didn’t know… I’ll learn from now on. Then, no matter what he did, no matter what the world thinks of Earth, I will not abandon Earth. I will not give up on Earth.”

That’s right. Our mutual love is precious…. we can already be called couple with no objections, and as a couple, we have no intention of separating, in order words, we’re basically husband and wife. 1 

“No, it doesn’t seem that… Earth… about the princess… umm…… as a woman…”

“Yes, I understand. Then, I’ll make him fall in love again after catching him. That’s fine with you, right?”


“Hmm, you think I’ll back down from just that? Obstacles are inherent in love, and it will only they burn brighter when they are overcome. Then, let’s go capture Earth!”

Too much, Mamu was so concerned about me that she said something like “Earth doesn’t love me anymore …”. She said such a “lie” to keep me away from this matter it seems, but I’m not childish enough to fall for such tricks.

Earth and me. Our connection cannot be severed or overturned by anyone.

From “that time” when we first came across my Earth ….

“That’s why I told you to wait, hey… Earth!”

However, to make a woman chase after you, a considerable amount of punishment is needed later.

And I’m giving my best effort to catch up to him.

But no matter how much I run, I wonder how far…

“Why did he rush out and suddenly flee… who are you … I don’t understand the circumstances, but…”


Who? The voice of a young woman. And a presence.

The moment the three of us stopped at the same time, three small knives fell from above and stabbed to the ground before us.

“Who’s there? You’re being impolite to us!”

“This is… Kunai? Ninja Warrior!”

“…… Who are you?”

When I looked up, a woman was on the branch of a tree.

“I mean no disrespect. But, you see, to give priority to Honey’s feelings I’m going to be an inconvenience and stop you here.”

“What… huh?”

A mysterious black-haired woman. She seemed to be standing in front of us in order to impede our pursuit for the fleeing Earth… what kind of relationship does she have with Earth?

“Ho… honey?”

“Yes, that’s right. I….. met him the other day, and he showed me such charm as a man that I… fell madly in love with him.”


“But I’ve only just met him. I don’t want to be thought of as a clingy flirt following him around on his journey to live freely in the moment. So all I can do now is support and help him from the shadows as a shinobi… that’s why, I will not let you go any further.”

Honey? Ha, h-h-honiii? Th, this person, th, this woman.

“Hey… what are you saying… I don’t know what happened between you and Earth, but don’t scamper around my husband… Earth and I have been friends since we were little! Newcomers who came out later should back off!”

She gives me the creeps. My guts are boiling over. A thieving cat was trying to put a wedge between me and Earth…

“Husband? Since you were little…. oh, I see… that’s what you mean…”

“What is it?”

“You’re his first love, the one who’s still on his mind.”

“Hmm? That’s right!” 2 

“Fufufu, I see… that’s what you mean.”

Then the thieving cat looked at me and nodded as if she was satisfied with something, and snickered as if to ridicule me.

“No matter how much I’ve fallen for him, I still just met him. If there’s a woman he’s had long-standing feelings for and can’t forget… if that woman would make him happier than me… I was thinking of silently stepping aside, but…”

“Wha? Wh-what the hell?”

“No, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be very rude, but… surely, you are a beautiful woman, breasts are so-so… but, fufu, the thought that you could win at all.”

“…… What?”

At that moment, I understood.

Earth was getting farther away due to this strange pause.

However, even if I ignore this woman here, she will continue to stand in the way.

She’s an enemy that must be struck down right here and now.

“Earth became so popular… before I knew it …”

“Little man…”

To be honest, this is not the time to be involved with such a person.

However, my instinct as a woman are telling me.

“It can’t be helped. Mother…… I’ll stay.”

“Oh well… about the first love stuff and all that, seems there’s been some weird misunderstandings…”

I can’t run away from this woman.

And it’s neither Lady Mamu nor Sadiz who should defeat her.

It’s me.

“The two of you, chase after Earth. I will take care of this.”

“”No!? Princess!?””

They are hesitant to go ahead without me, but they can’t say so.

“This is an order! We can’t afford to lose sight of Earth! That’s why you have to go ahead and catch him! I’ll punish this cat and catch up soon!”

“Ku, Princess, but…”

“Who do you think I am! If we let him get away, it’s all for nothing!”

“Then, at least I’ll stay… whatever the circumstances, we can’t have leave the princess on her own.”

“I’ll do it! No, I have to do it! Quickly, go! You’re going to lose sight of him! This is a battle of pride not as a princess, but as a woman!”

“Ah, gah… U, understood, princess, but be careful! Don’t overdo it!”

So I emphasized that this was an order and let the two of them go.

“Hold it, no one’s going ―――”

“That’s right. You will never go near Earth again.”


“【Imperial Spear • Agrestic Spearhead!! 】”

I let fly a thrust of my spear, similar to wind pressure, and she avoided my attack.

I see, it seemed she’s a little capable, this woman.

“Wind Art!”


“【Unveiled Hidden Romance Jutsu! 】”

Moreover, to attack while evading? Magic? No, I don’t feel much magic power.


However, it was only a light breeze being blown at my feet… eh?

“Ah, s-skirt… ku, what the hell are you doing?”

My skirt was rolled up a little.

Well, since the opponent was a woman, it doesn’t matter if she sees my underwear in the least….

“Oh… not white…… for the most part, his taste is restrained.”

“Nu!? Wh, what?”

“What’s more, high-quality silk… I wonder if she’s a proper lady. They said she was a princess, but, not entirely….”

“No, hey, wait a minute! Why all of the sudden…”

Earth’s taste? Wh, what do you mean?

“Do you not know? His favorite underwear is white…. by the way, the other day, he had a look at mine.”

Earth, panties!? N-no, ma-maybe he has seen mine, without me realizing they could be seen…. but yeah, does Earth like white…. I, I just happened to wear black today, but… no no, more importantly, Earth and this woman, wha, what’s with looking at panties other than mine!

Punishment is necessary after all.

But on the other hand, me and Earth were too platonic. Or rather, I do not show such openings so much, so maybe that’s why Earth is messing with smutty books.

Well, then, I don’t mind showing you my panties, if that’s the case.

Nununu, panties … as it is, Earth may get a nosebleed and ravish me… but if it happened, it would…. mfufu. 3 

Now, rather than that, I should focus on the indecent woman in front of me.

“Hmm. A woman with dreams beyond her station… you’ll learn to the depths of your pores just whose man you’re trying to make a move on.”

“Fall to obscurity as soon as possible. I’ll put to rest the ghosts of the past that torment him.”

We can’t compromise with each other. We who collided with such feelings……

“I’ll at least ask your name first. What’s your name?”

“Shinobu Stoke.”

“Is that so. I’m ――――”

“I know. You’re…… the woman in his thoughts, Sadiz.” 4 

“…… huh?”

Eh…… huh?



No, why did she mistake me for Sadiz?


And, why are you so surprised with that vacant look?

Or rather, what a ridiculous misunderstanding?

“Well, in any case, Earth is…”

“That’s right. Either way, Honey is…”

We immediately regained our composure and prepared for each other.


And, mutually refusing to concede, we clashed with each other… it was then.


“”Eh… eehh!!??””

“Know thy place… Little Human Lasses”

And I lost consciousness at that point.

Author’s Note

It’s hot. I can’t stand Cool Biz, Super Cool Biz, or my usual naked Biz.

It’s so hot that the head does not work. Therefore, it was because of the heat that I had forgotten the princess’s name.



 [S3]Yeah, Shinobu’s right! Nothing Princess-like here…

 [S4]Again, WRONG!!!

  1. thanks for the chapter.
    Oh man i was not expecting the princess to be this in love and this dense, makes me feel kinda bad for her when it finally comes to light from earths own mouth.

    Liked by 14 people

  2. You know… what pisses me off.. is the fact that NOBODY tells Earth about the Princess liking him…

    Why keep him ignorant??? Just tell him. Frankly speaking… how many problems could be easily avoided if they had a proper conversation???

    Hell, I’m sure Earth actually wouldn’t have minded getting with her before this if you just f***ing talked about it!!!

    If something is obvious to every f***ing person in the kingdom…. then it’s probably okay to talk about it.

    How many misunderstandings can be avoided if you just talked with him? Even his freaking master…

    And frankly, she’s a hidden guard anyways… you’re a princess… if he becomes Emperor, then it’s normal for him to bang his maid and secret guard… like that’d be historically accurate anyways…

    So why fight?

      1. No, he doesn’t know. If he knew, it probably wouldn’t have been that hard for the 2 of them to get together….

        Look at how easy he was. He just had to know that 1 girl liked him to start falling for her….

        The main problem was that her actions only make sense if you knew she liked him. She was under the impression that he already knew, so she acted like a scolding wife.

        But he didn’t know, so he misunderstood it as hate.

        That single piece of knowledge can change the perspective of everything.

  3. Thank you. I was expecting this confrontation, very good, Shinobu best girl, I would like her to hang out with him.


  4. Ah… i caught up.. q-q …

    I see that the princess is still delusional…. and the mother didn’t even really tried to tell her …

    tbh I dont really care about romance at this point … I just want to see Earth be a “big man” .. along with his Master … and some friends along the way

    Thanks for the Chappy~

    1. His mother did tell her. That was the “Earth doesn’t love me (anymore)” line. She probably said to her that Earth doesn’t love her and she took it as a lie and trying to protect her.


  5. PRINCESS! Where was THIS personality until now!? P.S. this was the LN with the stripping author notes right? What happened to his drill to the sky? Did it get too cold?


    1. Exactly just reading his yandere thoughts of he deserves punishment and giving little importance to what mamu said, those things make me feel more sorry for Earth and all he had to go through.


  6. That Princess is just sick on the head, her delusions are just too much.

    I know the original author is not reading this, but if I could say something to him, I would tell him to drop the violent nutjob


  7. The Princess is really annoying here. She doesn’t understand what she’s done wrong and her only conviction is “I’ll make him fall in love with me again”(even though he never fell in love in the first place.)
    She’s gone on this journey and dragged many people with her to essentially say “Sorry, but i’m not sure for what” instead of actually trying to think of what she did wrong.


  8. dude this story is really good with the mentor and student dynamic and Earth’s growth mentally and physically
    until you’re hit with the dumb boob fanservice and harem jfc
    not interested in this fight

    At the very least, add some more character to the female leads other than revolving their purpose around the mc

    Liked by 1 person

  9. A very good chapter. My god, I really like these extra stories. They cover a lot of missing Infos.

    First, his harem is not just a background filter. They have personalities and willing to fight for their love as well. We have from a control freak princess who makes the most talk to a stalker shinobi who does every single underhand tactic to win him over. We also have a passive maid who mostly observes, and only waits for people to lower their guard to target him.

    Second, Earth doesn’t recognize about the love these people have for him is his fault. Of course, they are girls, and they really shy about having their lovers know about this (which I fascinate by the fact that Shinobu tell that to him the 2nd time they met because of her straight personality, but he rejects it). Everybody knows, even the new girl knows, the harem behind him, and has plan to work around each other.

    Third, the reason why Earth doesn’t recognize it. He makes it straight that he loves the maid (bluntly say the color of underwear, mumble about the maid when drunk, etc.). Because he is like that, he can’t understand the hint behind every action his harem does.


    1. Also, don’t hate the princess. Yes, she may be a control freak but she acts really nice to people around her (except Earth). She also devotes her love to him when they are children and still loves him even when he falls make it so good. She understands the talk between him and his parents is something vulnerable so she doesn’t talk about it. If she is a true control freak who only want Earth because of typical tsundere, it will be like Niki Mirai


      1. You already write why this slut princess is the worst
        “she acts really nice to people around her (except Earth).”

        That’s why she’s the worst
        Did you love someone who trashing & insulting you every single
        time you meet each other?

        That’s a huge M fetish my bro…


  10. Man… the princess is just annoying. She’s so delusional that you’d think she’s a psychopath. Shinobu is a stalker, but at least she makes her actions based on Earth’s feelings. She even considered stepping away and giving up her unrequited love if Earth finds a better woman that would make him happier. They may have only met for a very short time, but that’s true love folks. The princess, however, is just straight-up obsessive. She only cares about herself and very self-indulgent. Instead of trying to figure out *why* Earth left, like what her parents and Sadiz are trying to do, her decision is to literally capture MC and make him fall in love with her. She never stopped to think about what Earth wants and needs, she only thinks about herself and her selfish fantasies and delusions. Jesus Christ, what a shitty character.


  11. “Earth doesn’t love me anymore …”. She said such a “lie” to keep me away from this matter it seems, but I’m not childish enough to fall for such tricks.

    Hahahahaha, really?


  12. “And when Earth wielded enough power to overwhelm Rebal, I was astonished, but at the same time thrilled.
    The charm of Earth as a man exceeded my tolerance, and I was so aroused that I wanted him to embrace me immediately.”
    I feel like the princess is getting too much hate. Shes still 3rd but credit is given where credit is due, she was the only 1 out of ALL ppl (including his parents) that was genuinely happy (altho also surprised) when earth used the great demon spiral vs rebel and during the full fight. That gets her some points. Sadiz for example was more surprised than anything else b4 going into panic from PTSD.
    If anything her problem is that she is outright delusional. She fabricated this idea that they are pretty much alrdy married and at this point Im not sure if she even knows who earth is or if shes just ~99 % projecting.
    I also think ppl are giving sadiz too much credit, no1 wants to go back home after a sht day of work to get her comments like: “You have the mental fortitude of a slime, how pathetic.”. Every single time, therefore her name sadiz, if your an hard M she might be the 1 for you but that sht gets annoying and fast. She has the best looks by miles tho.
    Shinobu I didnt like her too much at the start but part 3 won me over, shes hilarius.


  13. People keep on hating on the Princess and saying “oh she’s a slut princess” …. how is she a slut? She wants *one* man.. and has wanted ONLY one man since she was 5 years old. That’s dedication. Second, we’ve learned from Sadiz that she was super sweet on him when she was 5 “oh oops I forgot to put you as a warrior. You can be my husband instead” …that’s not a hint.. that’s a tactical nuke that screams *I WANT YOU AS MY HUSBAND!!!* then to top it off she actually does the “food,bath, me” line… and it goes over his head (admittedly he’s 5 so no shit it does) but, dear god man the hints were there that far back. If we should be annoyed at anyone now it’s Earth because he wasn’t looking at his surroundings properly. He clearly has proven he is unable to read subtext at all.. Even though literally everyone else around him could see it.

    I actually like the princess because she at least is true to her own emotions. Granted they were warped because of Their Parents AND Sadiz herself… you know the object of his affection?!?! Yes she’s gone off the handle now but, at this point the girl has been told by everyone and everything that she’d get to be with her own personal hero as his bride for YEARS. She could never be openly honest about her feelings towards Earth because of her position as Princess. I mean clearly she’s been wanting to “seal the deal” since for freaking EVER now. So if anything she’s perhaps the Thirstiest Princess ever. But at the same time I can’t fault her for it to an extent.. just kinda surprised that the carnal desires started when she was 5 because y’know holy shit that’s young.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Well maybe at five she only heard the line, knew that it’s something that will please a man, and maybe make babies but without really knowing what it entails. I don’t consider her a slut either, what’s wrong with wanting to be banged by the man you love and who love you ?(In her mind of course)

      Actually with her delusion i find her more painful than anything… She think they’re already an item and always act with Earth like a mean wife, bringing him down physically and mentally when other women start to get interested… I don’t fault Earth for not noticing feelings that aren’t here xD


  14. When i tell you i was physically grimacing while reading this princess’ thoughts. She so deluded and blind its terrifying honestly go shinobu best girl rn


  15. All aside, imagine being a mother, bad as it may, and pursuing the son that run away with all that anguished feelings, and when you finally get a glimpse of him, when all questions, emotions and worries overflow, this nonsensical exchange strikes you.
    … Damn…


  16. Yeah…. she’s pretty delusional.

    They say love is blind but the Princess is creepy and possessive about it. She makes many astute observations about Earth yet only properly looks at him when it’s convenient for her.

    It’s hard to call what she feels for him ‘love’ if she can ultimately ignore anything that’s not ‘Phianse x Earth’… including Earth’s own feelings and opinions.
