I, Kaoru, once known as ⓑⓔⓔⓟ— of the ⓑⓔⓔⓟ—. Possessor of a vast ⓑⓔⓔⓟ— and inexhaustible ⓑⓔⓔⓟ—. However, those things have no ⓕⓤⓒⓚⓘⓝⓖ use right now.
I recalled those days when I was thirteen years old.
That was a rainy day; the old gentleman was jumping and spinning continuously under the rain. He shouted in joy while taking off the only two clothing he was wearing. He was acting just like a fifty years old child.
I was still in exile at the time. Without any place to stay, I could only hide under the park’s sliding board to take shelter from the rain.

I asked the old gentleman why he didn’t come in to take shelter, why was he so happy despite being drenched in the rain.
The old gentleman said, “Life is just like getting ⓡⓐⓟⓔⓓ. Since we cannot resist it, we might as well enjoy it.”
I was still young at that time and couldn’t understand the despair under his cover.
But now, I have finally understood how one could lose their will to resist in the face of true terror.
Even so, I still couldn’t bring myself to enjoy this from having reached such a realization.
That’s because… this is really too embarrassing…
Why… just why did the evil human create something as embarrassing as a bandage costume! Isn’t this just a rag? How could this be counted as clothes?!
“Heh-heh-heh… so beautiful.”
Don’t deceive me! Your face doesn’t look like one that’s appreciating a beautiful thing!
“Heh-heh, good daughter, don’t move randomly… Let me record this beautiful moment with the spectrum stone,” mother retrieved a blue crystal from somewhere.
Wait a minute! I got a bad feeling from the sound of this spectrum stone. It sounded just like some kind of video recording equipment.
“As long as I record with this, I will be able to appreciate my daughter’s beauty at any time.”
So… it’s true!!! Wait-wait-wait! Did you know this is against the law? Doesn’t it hurt your conscience to do something this cruel to your newborn daughter? Did you know what kind of harmful influence it will bring about to my still immature heart?
“Mnya! Nghh Nh-nh-nh-nhhh!” I started to struggle, but I couldn’t take off the bandage costume. It was wrapping my body in circles. The more I struggle, the more I got tangled up and turned into some kind of bondage play.
“Heh-heh-heh… no wonder you’re my daughter, even your taste is the same as mommy… Lookie here~ Ahn~ That rebellious yet inviting expression is so irresistible.”
Who’s rebellious yet inviting? My face is showing naught but resistance okay? If you keep this up, I’m really going to report this to the police… uh… it seems like even the police won’t be able to handle this case…
Damn it! Is there no one who can save me?
Perhaps even the Heaven couldn’t bear to watch my sufferings any longer, the spectrum stone in mother’s hands suddenly started to ring.
“Tsk, that ⓑⓐⓢⓣⓐⓡⓓ,” mother tapped the spectrum stone with a very irritated face.
A projection manifested atop the spectrum stone. What appeared on the screen was a refined-looking old man with a grizzled beard.
The old man slightly bowed before mother, “My queen.”
“Akarin huh, what’s the matter?” So that old man is the gray-colored dragon from earlier huh.
“The preparation for the party is completed. It is time for Your Majesty to enter with the princess.”
“Tsk, why are they so fast… Alright alright, we’ll be there soon,” mother wanted to switch off the spectrum stone as soon as she finished speaking.
At this time, I realized; this is my chance! Even for my mother who possessed the highest authority among the dragons, she definitely wouldn’t want her subordinate to know she was this kind of person in private.
And once her image has been busted, she will be admonished by many loyal subjects. Then she will have no choice but to give up on ravaging me due to the sheer pressure from her peers.
Hah! I, Mordred (omitted the rest), am indeed a genius.
“Ga ga goo goo!” I started to cry out desperately.
“Hm? How can I hear the princess’ voice? Is she around?”
Akarin was about to turn his head towards the sound reflexively.
All of a sudden, a terrifying aura shrouded the entire room. Even Akarin, who was on the other side of the screen, also turned pale.
“If you dare to turn your head, I will snap your neck!”
The frightened Akarin immediately turned off the projection.
Y- you coward! Aren’t you a dragon? Why are you so spineless! You peed yourself just from a little fright, do you still have the face to call yourself a dragon?!
Damn it! I was too naive, to my mother who could crush every obstacle with brute force, there’s no such thing as constrain…
Mother put away the spectrum stone and said with a dejected look, “Sigh~ Why does good time always end so quickly? The party is about to begin.”
She continued with a sigh, “I still have a few sets I wanted to try. There are some that looked even better than this…”
T- there’s still something that looks even better (more embarrassing)? Don’t tell me you spent the entirety of the last twenty years just to buy clothes? That’s too scary! Way too scary! Is mother really such a terrifying creature?
Mother picked up a Western-style dress that’s been prepared long ago, “Alright, just put this on first. We will try the other 109,861 clothes some other time.”
That’s right, that’s right! As long as you don’t make me wear those shameful clothes again, I am willing to wear as much as… wait, h- how many did you say again? One… hundred nine thousand, and eight hundred……
Just how did you gather one hundred nine thousand and eight… no, including the one hundred thirty one sets earlier, there are one hundred ten thousand sets of clothes here. I will just kneel down before you alright? Just accept my bow of servitude.
At this very moment, I felt that instead of getting ⓡⓐⓟⓔⓓ, I have been ⓖⓐⓝⓖⓑⓐⓝⓖⓔⓓ one hundred ten thousand times.
