ouldn’t be able to use healing magic though!?

 

「And the reason for that is their ability to use their lineage magic, 【Transpose Curse】.」

「Transpose curse, so it’s a curse?」

「Extremely powerful one.
It’s a kind of sympathetic magic that 『Transpose』 your injury, or another person’s injury toward a different person.」

 

That was―― rather than healing, it’s more like――

 

「Forcing one’s injury or illness to another person, huh.」

「Correct.」

 

… Okay, I understand now.

 

It wasn’t something like 『Miracle』 of healing, it was more like a curse befitting of dark folks…

 

「But, if they have such convenient magic, how in the world did they fail to safe the first demon king?」

 

The first demon king, Raohgias was in fact killed by the human race.

 

He received a stab with a dense amount of holy attribute in the moment of carelessness in the battle, and every wound was the reason why he kicked the bucket.

 

And yet, how in the world did they fail to save Raohgias with such a convenient curse? Could it be that the transpose curse couldn’t be used to a wound with a holy attribute?

 

「The target for the transpose curse must be one own’s subordinate, people who are related strongly to the user or living things under their control.」

 

Sofia explained so.

 

「In fact, all members of the Reiju clan were trying their best to treat His Majesty, the 1st Demon King’s wound back then but, none of them could bypass the 1st Demon King’s natural magic resistance.
In short, His Majesty’s body itself reject all kind of outside curse.」

… The first demon King had outstanding magical power.
In short, his own high magic resistance had finally backfired on him.
This means that it wasn’t as versatile as 『Miracle』.

 

Serves you right, bas*tard.

 

「In a certain meaning, His Majesty should be safe and sound as long as the transpose magic is successful.」

 

If that was the case, suppose that there was a Demon King who could literally reflect the wound inflicted to him back to his opponent, that must be the birth of the history’s strongest demon king…

 

… Eh?

 

That’s really useful, eh? Someone from the Reiju clan should be able to do that.

 

「Could it be that Reiju clan is an extremely powerful clan?」

「Yes.
In fact, they’re one of the most influential clans in the demon kingdom.」

 

Sofia replied with an indifferent look on her face.

 

「Reiju clan has never lost against a clan with weaker magical power than them.
But in the case of an equally powerful opponent, unless the other party deliberately received it, or the user comes up with a clever plan to use the curse, the curse basically wouldn’t be able to bypass the magic resistance of their opponent.」

 

A clever scheme, eh…

 

Hey, Ante.

 

『It seems there’s a really interesting way to utilize this magic…』

 

The Demon God replied with an extremely bad smile on her face.

 

「But, that Reiju clan―― has weakened for a period of time due to their failure in saving the 1st Demon King.」

 

A~h.

 

It was easy to imagine such a situation.

 

The other clans most likely banded together to criticize the Reiju clan’s failure.

 

「Thus, Platyfia-sama’s marriage ended up delayed for quite a bit.
Considering her contribution to the demon kingdom, it’s not strange if she’s the first on the Demon King’s wife’s list.」

 

… So the wedding was postponed due to the incident with the 1st Demon King.

 

So that was the reason behind her bizarre obsession…

―― The sound of footsteps resounded.

 

「Jilbagias! I’ll teach you how to use our lineage magic.」

 

That moment, the person whose name I just mentioned in my heart made her appearance.

 

「Have you heard Sofia’s explanation about lineage magic?」

「Yes, mother.
I just received the explanation about Reiju clan’s transpose curse.」

「Great.
The wise you should’ve understood, right? The potential of our clan.
You, who inherited the lineage of Reiju clan and His Majesty’s lineage―― Have the qualification to become the strongest Demon King in history.」

 

After closing the door, Platy unleashed her mana in the room and recited a spell.

 

With a snap, I felt the change in the air.

 

「Soundproof barrier.」

 

And then, Platy took out the portable spear that she always tucked in her belt.

 

「The inheritance of transpose curse is simple… You just need to receive the curse.」

 

Platy revealed a gentle and lovely smile as she brushed the blade of her spearhead.

 

「It’s faster than the original plan but, you’ll eventually taste the pain of the battlefield anyway.」

 

… Crap, I got a really bad feeling about this.

 

I more or less have some resistance to pain.

 

But, the painful thing was still painful! No one likes to be hurt!

 

「Prepare yourself.」

 

The moment she said so, Platy stabbed the palm of her hand with the spearhead in her other hand.

 

Thus, the spearhead easily tore through the palm of her hand.

 

But, that amount of pain only managed to make Platy’s eyebrows twitch―― It wasn’t even enough to make the savage smile on her face crumble.

“”

 

「That look really painful, mother.」

「Yes.
But, you should be able to endure this level of pain――【Metaphysics(Transpose)】」

 

The next moment, I felt a scorching hot pain running through my right hand.
