Chapter 284 - Good Spies
For a week, Lucien, his troops, and his wives didn't have many things to do other than fill their storage treasures with life crystals.
But of course, as Lucien's demonic energy is the 'cure' for the side effects of the crystals' unstable raw mana, everyone had a lot of fun.
Lucien, L.u.s.t, Amelia, and Envy tried to explore the depths of the mine from the outside, but the two great demons still can't get too far from their hosts, so they haven't been able to get very deep.
Also, other sea creatures had access to crystal mana somewhere deep in the sea, which created good challenges for the girls.
Lucien did not fight the creatures by allowing his girls to train their skills on powerful enemies who need teamwork and that they use all their power.
And so, the week was enjoyable. All the girls, be they wives or troops, had good shots of special milk in their love holes, except for Dawn, Amelia, and little Ko.
Dawn is really enjoying interacting with the girls and not having to worry about politics or war. But she is not yet ready to think of more complex things like how to stay with Lucien's family without ending up being one of his wives, so she just tries to keep her distance from him, especially when he is doing something lewd.
Amelia, on the other hand, wants to be close to Lucien all the time, but whenever he tries to do something more pleasurable besides kissing and light caresses, her embarrassment gets out of control, and she runs away for fear of doing something very bold like the last time.
Little Ko also wants to be around Lucien all the time, but she doesn't try to do anything 'weird,' which Lucien finds nice. Still, he knows that she is restraining her desires because she knows that he is not comfortable with her infant body, and so they continued acting like a loving pair of father and daughter, which they both find very pleasant.
And on the seventh day, the group sailed out to the open sea again, leaving the small island. Although Envy tinds it irresponsible to leave the mine unprotected, the life crystals are not resources that Lucien's group can really use now.
Only Lucien, Ghilanna, and some of the troops who have low nature affinity can benefit from the energy of life crystals with the help of Lucien's demonic energy.
Still, his increasingly incredible demonic energy plus the energy of Amelia and Envy is still the best way to strengthen the girls.
And of course, when they find Rose's mother, they can really use the crystals and the mine.
The mage girls made an enchantment using the location magic stone to make it even easier to find the island again, as well as defensive enchants like some golems and traps to prevent people from approaching the island and getting sick like the adventurers' group.
Having so many crystals to take to Rose's mother and strengthen Ghilanna, Lucien is now focused again on solving his wives' problems, and the first place to visit is the island where Cassidy's former husband is supposedly hiding.
The island of Raco is in the sea to the east of the border between the Great Forest and the Alliance, and it only belongs to Portgreen because it was a gift from the former leader of the Alliance to Cassidy because of her father's death in the battle against the Light Empire.
And although the group has maps that indicate where Raco is, navigating the great sea is a very difficult task. But of course, Madelyn and the other wind mages have become more and more powerful, which makes all navigation of Lucien's fleet much faster, so it's also easier for them to find Raco even if they have to navigate in a circle for a while.
And well, while sailing to Raco, the group had another incredibly pleasant week; after all, the way they get stronger is through the pleasure that Lucien makes the girls feel, so all the peaceful time they have will be pleasurable.
The girls kept getting stronger and stronger, making advances, and some even made it to the third layer of Mortal Realm while Lucien approaches the fifth layer because he is always the center of pleasure that girls feel.
In the middle of the eighth day after leaving the small island of the mine, Lucien sees the big island of Raco, several miles away, while flying with Ella and Aria, an activity they love to do together.
Lucien returns to his ship and notifies the group so that they head to Raco.
Although Raco is a large island and has many sh.i.p.s arriving and leaving its docks almost all the time, the arrival of a fleet of ten giant sh.i.p.s caught everyone's attention.
The city guard quickly gathered at the dock where Lucien's ship docked; everyone prepared for combat as there is still no news about Emmanuel, Raco's former ruler after he left for Portgreen.
Lucien's ship stopped at the wharf, and Lucien walked towards the dock arm in arm with Cassidy while little Ko sits on his shoulders, and the other girls follow them.
When Lucien's group arrives at the dock, the guard group welcomes them without hostility, and the captain of the guard prepares to introduce himself to Lucien in a polite manner.
But as soon as the man sees Lucien up close, in addition to being surprised by his dragonic wings and onyx horns, which are peculiar among the demi-humans, the man quickly realizes that Lucien is how people describe Portgreen's new King, The Handsome Devil.
Also, the captain of the guard can see the coats of arms on the flag of Lucien's fleet sh.i.p.s, which are the coats of arms of the old monarchy and not of adventurers or mercenaries, so he quickly concluded that the rumors are true.
"Sir... would you be the new king?" The captain asks respectfully.
Before Lucien answers, a young man comes out of the crowd watching the scene and slaps the guard captain's head. "Damn fisherman! Kneel before your King and Queen."
The captain of the guard makes a sorry expression and quickly kneels. "Forgive this humble servant, my King. I have always lived on this island and do not know much about the capital's matters."
The other guards quickly kneel too, followed by the common people, and greet Lucien and Cassidy respectfully.
The young man also kneels and, after greeting Cassidy, quickly reports to Lucien. "My King, you must not remember me, but I was in the group of messengers sent to notify Emmanuel."
Lucien nods. "I see. Has the new ruler arrived yet?"

The young man quickly responds. "No, sir. We haven't heard from the capital since Emmanuel left the island. Information only gets here by sh.i.p.s and usually takes some weeks."
